Insights into the biggest events shaping the crypto industry.
We are chronicling the ongoing story of Bitcoin and the rise of a borderless, permissionless financial system. What has changed since Satoshi wrote the Bitcoin white paper? How is Bitcoin trading developing over the years, what are the best ways of investing in Bitcoin, and how do Bitcoin futures influence blockchain adoption? How will industry stakeholders work to make Bitcoin a mainstay in people’s lives, and will incumbent and legacy systems accept or fight this change?
Ethereum’s native cryptocurrency, Ether (ETH), not only provides an incentive structure similar to Bitcoin (BTC) in securing and maintaining the network but is also used as “gas” to run transactions through smart contracts. We are loging the progress of the Ethereum space. Will it become essential infrastructure for a more open, freer internet? Or will it be surpassed by other smart contract (or traditional) platforms vying for mind and market share?
The term “altcoin” refers to any cryptocurrency that has launched since Bitcoin (BTC). In the early days of Bitcoin, developers forked the open-source code to create new currencies. Over time, these Bitcoin alternatives began to diverge further from their progenitor with different supply schedules and privacy features. The rise of altcoins and their respective blockchain networks marks an era of experimentation and maturation within the crypto industry, as a wider range of use cases of the technology have become possible.
What are NFTs? NFTs explained in brief: Non-fungible tokens are verifiably unique representations of digital and physical goods. Based on distributed ledger technology, NFT crypto assets serve as a method of authentication for buyers of unique items, proving aspects such as ownership. NFTs became much more well known in 2020 and 2021. NFTs have potential for other use cases as well, such as companies tracking their internal resources or platforms verifying subscriptions and use.
The future of technology.
The future of money.
The future of freedom.
As crypto matures, we will achieve a lot of stability which will make it easily transferable, and a store of value that will make it more used by businesses, the government, and everyone as a part of everyday life.
When we discuss blockchain technology, we are often talking about a collection of disciplines including cryptography, distributed systems design, economics, game theory and many others.
Blockchain technology, in practice, is not a singular thing, as it intersects with all manner of industries and technologies. While cryptocurrencies are the most widely acknowledged and discussed use case of blockchain, there are other non-financial use cases such as supply-chain provenance and digital identity that make it a compelling solution in all manner of fields.
