Aeternity

How Does Aeternity Works? Ethereum’s set enables individuals to set up smart contracts, which was a genuine jump forward for blockchain innovation. One issue that is sprung up, however, is that it’s difficult to scale smart contracts, and subsequently the dapps (decentralized applications) that use them. The outcome is that at bigger sizes of utilization and volume, the network can ease back to a creep. But how would you maintain a strategic distance from this? There are a couple of choices that have been postured. The first is using a different style of agreement. While this can increase the measure of transactions every second that the network can deal with, it’s at last restricted. The second is sharding, something we’ve seen with the platform Zilliqa. This technique partitions the expression of processing transactions among accumulations of hubs (shards) and by breaking up the work, making it take up less network processing power. There can be a few gets that require correspondence between shards, however, which could represent an issue for those transactions. The latter is moving smart contracts off-chain. This is the thing that Aeternity intends to do. How? It involves something called state channels.Ver reseña completa

ICON

How Does ICON Work? Loopchain & LFT As previously mentioned, ICON is heavily based on theloop’s Loopchain technology. This is a blockchain utilising a unique consensus mechanism called Loop Fault Tolerance (as opposed to more traditional Proof of Work or Proof of Stake consensus mechanisms used in most other currencies), and it should allow for very rapid block times. As a result, ICON shouldn’t see the kinds of delays that can affect Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other currencies. I won’t go into full detail here on how LFT works, but I recommend checking out the white paper for more information on that, and much more. As well as this, ICON has some interesting method for running and executing Smart Contracts, among other things. Again, this is all in the white paper if you’re interested. Nexus & Communities It is a Loopchian-based blockchain called Nexus that ICON uses to connect individual blockchains (which they call Communities) together. Any blockchain that want to connect to ICON is linked by Community Representatives, or C-Reps. C-Reps are nodes elected within their own Community, and they get to vote on governance decisions within ICON. For example, they get a vote in transaction verification, or on ICX distribution. And, as a reward for doing these jobs, they will receive ICX. Additionally, there are Citizen Nodes. These don’t have any of the voting rights that C-Reps get, but they can make transactions, build or run DAPPs, and do other tasks like this. Contributions to ICON’s network is rewarded with ICX tokens. The exact level of reward given out is determined using AI (hence the involvement of DAVinCI), which monitors different contributions to ICON and determines payouts based on ICON’s Incentive Scoring System (IISS). Various factors, such as the amount of frozen ICX tied to a node, its C-Rep status, or the ICX exchange volume of its Community will be taken into account in IISS.Ver reseña completa

Zilliqa

Zilliqa Leadership Team CEO Xinshu Dong (Ph.D. University of Singapore) has considerable development and leadership experience. He built secure systems, from web browsers and applications to blockchains, and he was Lead Engineer on the team that developed Anquan, a secure and scalable blockchain for ecommerce applications. He is joined on the Zilliqa team by Chief Scientific Advisor, Prateek Saxena (Ph.D. Computer Science, Berkeley), Head of Technology, Yaoqi Jia(Ph.D. University of Singapore), Head of Research, Amrit Kumar (Ph.D. Université Grenoble-Alpes), and Head of Business Development, Ong En Hui. The Zilliqa team consists of other well-educated and highly-experienced members. Zilliqa Target Market Zilliqa’s use cases put the project in competition with Bitcoin (funds transfer) and Ethereum (smart contract deployment). Since both of these platforms control market shares in excess of $2oo billion, Zilliqa has considerable room for growth. However, Bitcoin and Ethereum have been around for years, so, even though it offers a significant upgrade in scalability, it may take years before Zilliqa upstages the 2 biggest platforms on the blockchain. During its ICO, 1 ZIL token was worth $0.0038. As of when this post was published, 1 ZIL was valued at $0.143, meaning the token has appreciated in value by over 3663%. This bodes well for the project. Zilliqa Roadmap The project released a public testnet in the 1st quarter of 2018 and they plan to launch a public mainnet (with computational sharding for smart contracts) before the end of Q2 2018. By the 3rd quarter of 2018, Zilliqa aims to be functional enough to deploy DApps.Ver reseña completa

DigiByte

In my opinion, DigiByte has many good things going for it. It is a mature project with plenty of experience and cutting-edge innovations that have become popular on other well known blockchains. It’s approach to decentralised mining is an important feature when considering the corporatisation of the Bitcoin network. It is a project with a long term vision that is often overlooked, and because of this it receives a lot of hype in forums for being a ‘sleeping giant’ and a juicy investment. Although it is a respectable project, I’m not yet convinced that it will automatically stop being overlooked over time just because it is overlooked now. However, from my research I can see that it has a very friendly and enthusiastic community behind it, so if it is community that you are looking for then DigiByte would be a good place to start.

Bitcoin Diamond

However, it can be pointed out that the Singapore-based Bitcoin Diamond Foundation, the team behind BCD is currently not publicly revealed aside from the fact that it was developed by three teams, Team Every, Team 007 and one team that remained anonymous. Due to the said scenario, majority of crypto users are skeptical on whether to try Bitcoin Diamond or not since very little is still known behind the cryptocurrency. Likewise, users are wary of the fact that forked versions of cryptocurrencies are usually being preyed by scammers to claim their haul of free coins. At present, Bitcoin Diamond also doesn’t have any official wallets yet. What’s Lifting BCD? The fast-rising crypto has a market cap of $373 million against a circulating supply of 152953625 BCD and a maximum supply of 210 million. It’s currently ranked 32nd, making this mineable coin a great candidate for further growth. Bitcoin Diamond was first traded on 24th November 2017 and has suffered market declines just like other cryptos. By then the coin traded at $69.30. It then slumped to an all-time low of $1.97. The coin flatlined for a while, between mid-March and the end of the month, before this week’s uptrend kicked in. Ver reseña completa
