zilliqa Logo

Zilliqa (ZIL)

Zilliqa is a blockchain platform aimed at increasing transaction scalability. The developers are building blockchain-based payment solutions that will be able to work even faster than Visa or Mastercard. This will be possible thanks to the sharding technology. Sharding are dividing the Zilliqa mining network into smaller "shards", assuming that each "shard" can handle an X number of transactions, and together they are capable of processing 10X number of transactions. The more users (nodes) participating in the network, the higher the network bandwidth. Token: Zillings (or ZIL) is the payment unit of the Zilliqa network and currently running on their own blockchain (mainnet). ZIL is giving platform usage rights to the users in terms of using it to pay for transaction processing or run smart contracts. What makes Zilliqa protocol stand out for me: 1. Smart use of Proof-of-Work. Zilliqa protocol introduces two types of blocks: transaction blocks (TX-Block) and directory servSiehe vollständige Bewertung

chainlink Logo

Chainlink (LINK)

Chainlink is one of the few projects working on the development of decentralized oracles. On Chainlink multiple oracles can work simultaneously, receiving LINK as rewards, thus providing a reliable and stable functionality of complex smart contracts. Chainlink can easily become the industry leader for years to come, but don't forget that is has a serious competition. It also takes a lot of real-world adoption of smart contracts to see the full potential of the project. LINK token: LINK is an Ethereum-based token. Chainlink nodes (oracles) are rewarded with the LINK for receiving data from off-chain systems and converting it into blockchain-compatible formats. Thus, the current use-case of using the token is payment of work for the node operators. Why Chainlink is so hyped (my opinion): Chainlink team has attracted a lot of public attention to their project over the last 2 years, and their community is actively growing. Partnerships with a lot of cryptocurrency projects Siehe vollständige Bewertung

electrum wallet Logo

Electrum Wallet

Electrum is an open-source Bitcoin wallet founded on November 5, 2011.

Supported platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac OS Supported currencies: Bitcoin (BTC) MultiSig: Yes 2FA: Yes Security (10/10): The security of this wallet is very high. Multisig, 2FA, cold wallet support, and read-only mode are critical security factors: not all wallets have them. It is also possible to password-protect the login. Electrum is one of the most reliable Bitcoin wallets that is available today (aside from cold and paper wallets) Ease of use (5/10): As I mentioned in cons, this wallet will be difficult to use for inexperienced users. Now modern wallets make everything clean and simple, when even your ordinary intuition can tell you where to click. In Electrum, everything is far froSiehe vollständige Bewertung

bittorrent Logo

BitTorrent is a torrent client designed to speed up downloading files on the Internet. BitTorrent was acquired by the TRON Foundation in 2018. After that, BitTorrent announced the release of an extended version of the protocol and introduced the release of BTT token. It's worth noting that other crypto projects tried to acquire BitTorrent, including NEO. They offered $170M, but TRON eventually secured the deal for themselves. Token economics: BTT is a token on the TRON blockchain (TRC10). Designed primarily to motivate seeders to stay online and distribute files longer in order to maintain high download speed (BitTorrent Speed). BTT will also be integrated as a native token into the BTFS ecosystem. Other use-cases of the token in the BitTorrent ecosystem are also possible. Interesting IEO Facts: 1) Hardcap of $7.2M was raised in 15 minutes (not counting $20M raised on private-sale). 2) Public IEO price per token was $0.00012. Individual cap was $20,000 (in BSiehe vollständige Bewertung

YoBit Exchange

Yobit is a crypto exchange which was founded in Russia in 2014. Since the beginning, this exchange is raising a lot of controversies. Founders of this exchange are unknown, and there's been a lot of speculations about it. For those who considering trading on this exchange: Everyone should be aware that this exchange has a shady reputation. You can find a lot of Bitcointalk threads stating that this is a scammy exchange. Newbies should be extra careful: there's a countless number of illiquid coins and tokens, some tokens (like OMG) represents other projects (it's not OmiseGO). Legal investigations: In 2017 it was under investigation by the Russian regulatory authorities (Roskomnadzor) for its questionable financial activities. Nevertheless, it amazes me that the exchnage is stil operates and presumably doing fine. Exchange support: Everyone should be careful trying to reach their support, cause there's a countless number of scammers, trying to impersonate the project manSiehe vollständige Bewertung

crowdholding Logo

I was trying to understand, why this project was rated so high on Revain. And my best guess is that this project have questionable reviews all over the place. Let's dive into this project and understand why this is most likely scam. Why I think this project is a scam: First of all, I can't find the project's whitepaper on the official website, or anywhere on the internet whatsoever. You can only stumble upon their "about page" landing, which is not revealing the project's technical side at all. This is a huge red flag. They also have "Our awesome partners" block on their website, which is stating that Google Developer Launchpad, BlockShow and Aeternity Ventures is their partners, and find it very hard to believe. There's no information on the internet that can justify this false information. Community management: Looking at their social media pages... It seems that their community management is indeed poor, or better Siehe vollständige Bewertung

Binance was founded in 2017 and today it's the largest cryptocurrency exchange. Within a few months after its launch, the exchange gained immense popularity and was one of the most striking examples of the successful Ethereum-based ICOs in the history. Binance DEX is a decentralized exchange developed by Binance. Binance DEX operates on Binance's own blockchain (Binance Chain), which is recording and confirming all internal transactions and exchange operations. Testnet was launched on February 2019. Binance Chain: Binance blockchain launched on a fork of the Cosmos blockchain. Instead of the standard SDK, Binance decided to launch on the Cosmos fork under the name Tendermint Core, which allows it to scale vertically to meet the needs and volumes of DEX. The blockchain itself is not very complex one and is designed more for high scalability than for an abundance of different features, such as smart contracts etc. Moreover, technically, it is not Bitcoin itseSiehe vollständige Bewertung

Dogecoin (DOGE)

Dogecoin is one of the oldest cryptocurrencies, which was founded in late 2013. From the very beginning, DOGE is perceived as a crypto joke, that was created just for fun and so on. Nevertheless, the community of Dogecoin was increasing gradually throughout the years, and at the same time, the average market cap of the coin has also increased, which is now stabilised around ~$340 million, which is not a joke at all. Features: The DOGE code structure is similar to LTC. This crypto can be used as a secure P2P payment method. DOGE payments and tips usually taking place in online communities and subreddits, where users post memes related to the currency. Let's run through it's general particular qualities: 1) Catchy. If you are in the crypto for awhile, you've probably heard of Dogecoin. DOGE is quite memorable thanks to the Shiba Inu meme, which is gaining more and more popularity in the internet. 2) Charitable.

Ontology (ONT)

Ontology is building a high-performance blockchain platform capable of combining several different blockchains together, improving cross-chain transactions and cross-platform interoperability for dApps. For example, dApps on separate blockchains for cannot always cope with all the functionality, scalability and full applicability of a cross-chain application scenarios. To solve this problem, Ontology devs decided to design a hyper-transition chain in the form of a matrix grid, which can bring together several blockchain chains. Technology-wise Ontology is using a combination of PoS, verifiable random function and BFT (Byzantine Fault Tolerance) systems. Token: Ontology implementing a two token system (ONT & ONG). ONT coin can be used for staking in PoS, whereas ONG is a utility-token in the platform ecosystem that is used to access Ontology on-chain services. Started out as NEO-based token, Ontology quickly became the most hyped and financially successful NEO-basedSiehe vollständige Bewertung

OMG Network (OMG)

OMG Network is the answer to almost every fundamental questions related to all existing financial institutions and blockchain-based payment systems. The platform enables a fast value transfer for Ethereum-based tokens. It achieved by second-layer transactions based on Plasma technology, which is most likely proposed by Vitalik Buterin. In 2017 it was one of the hottest tokens on the market. OMG was the first Ethereum-based token that has reached $1 billion in market capitalisation. It had the most prominent advisors: Ethereum co-founders Vitalik Buterin and Gavin Wood. Let’s run through their main advantages: 1) Real-world ready payment system on Ethereum blockchain.

qtum Logo

Qtum Overview

Qtum is basically Bitcoin on PoS combined with Ethereum. Developers came up with the idea to effectively (not so much) combine bitcoin-like transactions with ethereum-like smart-contracts. Proof-of-Stake combined with UTXO is a pretty interesting idea, but only in theory. They using same transaction output mechanisms (UTXO) like Bitcoin, but confirming the network consensus by validators with higher stakes (PoS), not higher hashing power (PoW). They also utilised the Virtual Machine from Ethereum (EVM), and modified it to be able to work with Bitcoin-like ledger. QTUM Foundation claims that they’ve been the first chain that enables dApps to work on PoS with UTXO technology, which they inherited from BTC. But there’s some shortcomings to that. Vulnerabilities: UTXO accounting mechanism is time-tested only in Proof-of-Work, but it hasn't been properly stress-tested with Proof-of-Stake protocols. Just like in Bitcoin, Qtum nodes are required to store UTXO database in RAM (Siehe vollständige Bewertung

nem Logo

NEM is a long-timers, they’ve been around since 2015 and now they represent a multi-level organization: NEM Foundation, NEM Studios, NEM Ventures as well as supernode owners, community members, core team and ecosystem partners. I want to emphasise on the fact that NEM was never a hardfork of Bitcoin, but was written from scratch in Java and C ++. For sure, NEM developers drew inspiration from the idea of the blockchain, but they never used an open-source code, like many other altcoin developers did. This was something that caught my attention about them. For me, the most interesting thing from NEM was Proof-of-Importance concept. In "ordinary" PoW protocols, the most valuable players are the ones with the most powerful computing equipment. In Proof-of-Importance - the most valuable players are the ones who contribute the most in terms of participation in the system development, and those with whom they’ve been exchange assets. Thus, the XEM token is fundamentallySiehe vollständige Bewertung

neo Logo

NEO (NEO)

Simply put, NEO can be called Chinese Ethereum. If Ethereum is Apple, NEO is Samsung. Compared to Ethereum, NEO claims that their smart contracts work better due to their high scalability, interoperability and interconnectivity. Smart contract developers are able to write code in JAVA, C/C # and GO, rather than learn new programming languages like Solidity. According to devs, this approach makes NEO a more attractive platform for developers. At the moment, NEO is in the top-20 by market cap (you can call it mid-cap sh*...altcoin 😉). This means that quite a large number of people trust this platform, and I'm not only talking about China. NEO technologies are of interest to people from many other countries. NEO devs hope to overcome Ethereum in terms of the number of users, which, in my opinion, is quite ambitious. As of real expectations about their ambitions - I will not promise anything. I can only say that at the moment, any 3rd grade smart-contract platform can envy the Siehe vollständige Bewertung
