ICON- Project that belongs in the leagues of Ethereum and NEO

Published

on

ICON project has been surprisingly under the radar for some time now.  This became evident when Bloomberg reporter asks Pantera’s CEO during an interview “what is ICON?”

While there are 100s of articles explaining what ICON is, QRIP group being a big fan of ICON, it made logical sense for us to write a comprehensive review on ICON.

What makes ICON different?

ICON is the blockchain platform developed by theloop. Unlike other blockchain platforms, ICON does not want to compete or replace any existing blockchain technology.  Rather, ICON aims to build a network of blockchains with ICON platform acting as connecting link.

There are no conditions or rules imposed on other blockchains to use ICON’s native currency, ICX.  Projects are free to use whatever medium of cryptocurrency they want to use.  ICON wants to be the facilitator of an unbroken and widely spread out blockchain ecosystem that not only connects various blockchain technologies but also connects various industries.

To learn about ICON and why it is a big deal in the crypto space, we have to understand various aspects.

i) ICON Team and advisors

ii) Existing partnerships and collaborations

iii) Interoperability Alliance

iv) ICONex wallet

v) ICONest – ICO Platform

vi) DeBlock – An Incubator program that aims to launch (and support) 300 new DApps on ICON network

vii) ICONick

viii) IISS (ICON Incentive Scoring System)

Let us dissect each aspect in detail to understand ICON better.

i) ICON Team

From the get go, ICON team has been talk of the crypto-space.  Until ICON introduced their ICO, crypto-space was used to 3 to 5 member projects.  ICON is different.   They have dedicated teams of blockchain developers, blockchain department for businesses, AI specialists, design, communications and security.

What sets this team apart from any other big team is that they were already working on blockchain for businesses for 2 years before getting into ICO.

NEO ICON team

NEO ICON

Their advisory group is made up of Dan Tapscott and others.  Dan Tapscott is a visionary and author of Blockchain Revolution.  Dan’s son, Alex, is the founder of AION blockchain project which is part of interoperability alliance (we will discuss that later).

The strength of the ICON team, advisory board and their connections have helped them form strategic partnerships and this is key to ensuring the success of ICON and blockchain technology itself.  

ii) Existing partnerships and collaborations

ICON has one of the most impressive line-up of partnerships and collaborations.

  1. Korea Financial Investment Association (KOFIA), a network of 26 financial institutions with theloop as exclusive technology partner
  2. SBI-Ripple Asia, a joint venture between Ripple and SBI Holdings to facilitate cross-border transactions
  3. Woori bank, which plans to facilitate Govt. issued digital currency for Korea
  4. Kyobo Life Insurance to facilitate automatic insurance payouts on the blockchain
  5. HealthCare consortium with major hospitals including University Medical Center, Severance Hospital and Gacheon University Gil Medical Center
  6. U-Coin (University Coin) with Korea University, Sogang University and Sohang University of Science and Technology
  7. Pantera Capital is an investment firm focused exclusively on ventures, tokens, and projects related to blockchain tech, cryptocurrency, and crypto assets.
  8. Kenetic Capital is an Hong Kong-based investor in online and offline blockchain communities since 2014. Fosters growth of innovative blockchain business models
  9. Token as a service (taas) is the last-generation tokenized closed-end fund actively contributing to the development of the blockchain ecosystem
  10. Coinsilium provides seed capital to developers of blockchain technology and fintech businesses. Coinsilium engages in partnerships with industry leaders in the smart contract and token space
  11. CM Crypto Capital (CMCC) is one of the leading blockchain focused investment funds with presence in Hong Kong and Toronto
  12. Mind Fund is a venture capital company that was established to provide hands on support and investment to entrepreneurs and innovators at all stages of their development from Start-up to an Initial Public Offering
  13. Hashed is a network of South Korean blockchain industry professionals; partnership of engineers, investors, attorneys, and business developers
  14. Crypto Bazaar is one of the largest blockchain communties in Russian-speaking countries (top blockchain developers, largest events, industry media network, venture crypto fund investing in ICOs)
  15. MOU between theloop & Cyberdigm and Raonsecure
  16. MME is a professional business advisory firm for Swiss legal and tax issues
  17. MOU with E4Net.net, a company with 20 years experience in banking and card companies space
  18. Partnership with Japan’s first crypto fund B-Cryptos which is backed by B Dash Venture Capital and Japan’s leading crypto exchange Quoine.

If above list seems long, you will notice that it does not cover all from looking at this picture summary (Spec-Rationility creation, check their site for a great overview).

NEO ICON Blockchain platform

Apart from above, ICON has also entered into MOU with AD4th and Nonghyup Bank.  Most importantly ICON entered into a strategic partnership with Kyber Network “to closely work together to help employ scalable protocol of KyberNetwork’s token exchange services and interconnect with other blockchains participating in the ICON network.”

Ironically, two collaborations (E4net and B-Cryptos) were announced during the time we were putting this article together.  That is just a testament at the speed at which ICON is spreading its wings.

iii)  Interoperability Alliance

ICON wants to be the blockchain network of blockchains of the world.  It cannot achieve this goal without help.  Forming interoperability alliance with AION and Wanchain, both successful in their own right, was part of giving shape to the long-term goals of ICON project.

AION will form the connecting bridge between blockchains with a focus on Western world while Wanchain will help transfer of digital assets across multiple blockchain platforms.

As there is no restriction or condition to using ICON currency, Wanchain will help transfer digital assets across multiple blockchain platforms that form part of ICON network.

iv) ICONex wallet

“ICONex is ICON’s Wallet supporting ICX and various cryptocurrencies.  ICONex boasts faster transactions, secure payments, and liquid exchange across multiple cryptocurrencies with user-friendly UX and UI.”

ICON has set aside tokens specifically for the use of ICON’s DEx platform.  DEx are going to be vital part of crypto space in future to facilitate trust and security.

v) ICONest – ICO Platform

ICONest is the ICO platform of ICON project which provides platform to launch your own DApp projects.  The platform boasts features like whitelist, refund/unlock and contribution cap.  The first DApp, Blue Whale, is launching on ICONest and allows for users to participate in the ICO using ICON and Ethereum.

Below ICOs are already confirmed:

  • Sentinel Protocol:   Sentinel Protocol can be described as security intelligence platform for blockchain (SIPB), this includes a wide variety of security features, from anti-theft, malformed transaction prevention, unknown threat prevention, transaction traceability etc.
  • Blue Whale: Blue Whale is building a decentralized ecosystem for the sharing economy on the blockchain, tackling several key downsides of traditional sharing economy.
  • SmileGate Stove: SmileGate’s objective is to develop timeless-classic games that can be enjoyed by any generation and to continually expand our business to allow greater audience to experience all that Smilegate has to offer.
  • Tink: is a an application that lets your friends add credence to your social profile.
  • Silk Road: is a platform that supports transparent history  management and purchasing by reforming the semiconductor supply chain and SCM into a blockchain-based decentralized system.
  • UPPSALA: is a Security Intelligence Platform for Blockchain (SIPB) which aims to overcome the disadvantage of decentralization by turning it into an advantage of security.
  • AD4th: is a decentralized advertising platform with real-time P2P reward system.

In addition, Nucleus Vision that facilitates IoT based contactless identification system for retailers and customers has also joined forces with ICON.

As more and more DApps are built on ICON, we will see synergies that will propel the demand for ICON tokens and its technology.

Check their platform view, it is just as simple as it is beautiful.

vi) DeBlock – An Incubator program that aims to launch (and support) 300 new DApps on ICON network

ICON and AD4TH  joined hands to form the DeBlock.  Deblock’s mission is to discover and nurture entrepreneurs and great talent. Deblock supports various projects to develop new breeds of decentralized applications running on ICON. Deblock’s entrepreneurs will get full support from ICON Foundation to co-build global-scale projects.

vii) ICONick

ICONick is a convenient ‘wallet ID’ used in the ICON network.  Use your own unique nickname to replace the long and complicated default wallet address to conveniently transfer or exchange ICX.

Article Begins

You may be surprised to see that the article actually begins after so much scrolling.  Yes, it reflects just how big ICON is (and will be in future).  It took us this long just to describe what ICON has accomplished so far since it’s ICO that happened only 7 months back.

Do not just skim through that paragraph.  Read it again.

  • ICONs team is amazing.
  • ICONs partnerships are outstanding.
  • ICONs interoperability alliance speaks of long term vision.
  • ICONs ICO platform is going to change the landscape, initially in South Korea and then elsewhere in the days to come.
  • ICONs DeBlock initiative is going to create a wave of innovations and crazy ideas taking shape in real world which will help boost a new wave of jobs in the blockchain industry and wide range acceptance of ICON platform.

Perhaps, ICONs greatest strength doesn’t lie in its strengths at all.  It is in its humble approach to the market.  They could declare that they are the greatest blockchain companies with real world business blockchains currently running (which is true) and try to capture the market that way.  But the path they have chosen is the one that not only enables ICON for wide acceptance but it also helps other blockchain projects and thus enabling the adoption of blockchain technology in the mainstream.

Price action

Crypto space is at its infancy.  People still fall for ‘promise’ rather than ‘execution’.  For example, right at this time there are projects that promise 700,000 to million or more transactions per second (TPS).  TPS is the current buzz word in crypto space.

What good is TPS going to do if you have zero business connections? Zero adoption?  Zero long-term vision?  And a below average team to execute on the project?

If you google alternatives to ‘word processor’ you will find many options, some better than MS Word but we all know what businesses use.  It is a similar story with blockchain platforms.  You might have million TPS and lightning speed, but if there is no business adoption of the said technology, you will eventually be wiped out.

Reason for this is simple, running a business is very hard.  Creating hype on the other hand is very easy, in the short-term.

Because people in crypto space are still learning the difference between a high that comes from short-term hype to long-term success, ICON has been lagging in price action compared to its more hyped purported competition.

As the title of this article suggests, ICON will be in the leagues of Ethereum and NEO.  It took Ethereum good number of years before it broke the ceiling.   NEO was a similar story.

When more and more partnerships ensue, ICOs start launching on ICON platform, more exchange additions (Bittrex/Quoine, etc.) take place, DeBlock projects start taking shape and more blockchains join the alliance of interoperability and when South Korea realizes the potential of its own home grown mammoth, these events, in no particular order, are going to act as catalyst in pushing ICON into top 10 space of market cap.

We are confident that before the end of this year, ICON will break its own all-time highs and set new records.

Future of ICON

If ICON forges ahead like the way they have been so far, there is no stopping their success.  We will be watching ICON closely, and you should too if you are interested in a quality project that has potential to be around in the next decade.

Update 1: May 10th: MOU with aSSIST, this furthers the nexus of ICON in the Universities (education industry) space

Update 2: May 11th: “MOU with Samsung Electronics to incorporate CHAIN ID in Samsung’s ‘Samsung Pass’ service.”

6 Massive Benefits of Cryptocurrency

Published

on

Benefits of Cryptocurrency

It is normal to be hesitant about using cryptocurrency as the medium of financial transactions. 

There is a school of thought which believes, it is a domain suitable for criminals, fraudsters, and terrorists. Cryptocurrencies allow them to maintain anonymity for discreet transactions and ransomware scams.

However, the increasing acceptance of Bitcoin as a digital currency has initiated a positive perspective around this mode. It brings a distinct set of pros for the users, making them overlook the risks tag along.

According to the Finder, a post on social media surfaces about Bitcoin every three seconds. If we do the math, it means 1203 posts pop up per hour, making it to 20 posts per minute.

A more general view on the crypto landscape speaks of its overall growth, too. Block Social tells us how cryptocurrency exchanges around the globe have exceeded 300 during 2020.

In fact, the success of crypto shows us the loopholes of the traditional banking system. If you, too, want to leap on this bandwagon and aren’t sure about your next move, this is the right place. Our blog sheds light on the positive aspects of cryptocurrency that make it a more established form of financial trade. 

Healthereum

1. Easy transactions

When dealing with brokers or legal representatives, you have to pay the transaction fee from time to time. This comes along with immense paperwork, commission, brokerage charges, and so much more. Using cryptocurrency eliminates the need for a middle man. The transaction changes into a one-to-one affair taking place on a secure network.

No wonder Forbes stated that adopting blockchain technology can save financial organizations around $12 billion yearly. A deduction of extra charges from third parties and reduced operations cost is saving millions for huge organizations.

Moreover, the transactions are transparent, making it easier for you to establish audit trials. There is no more confusion over who pays whom. All parties involved in the transaction know each other quite well. Accountability on each party grows.

2. Asset transfers

A financial analyst rightfully describes cryptocurrency blockchain to be a “large property rights database.” On the one hand, it helps execute and enforce two-party contracts on commodities such as real estate and automobiles. At the same time, it also facilitates special modes of transfer. 

As per Born2Invest, Bitcoin alone is responsible for an average of 350 000 daily transactions on the Blockchain. Meanwhile, Coinbase has 30 million cryptocurrency users (Block Social). The increasing figures of each crypto speak of its acceptance worldwide.

The parties involved in asset transfer can design contracts and add third-party approvals at a later date. It also helps to reference the external facts and gives the parties exclusive governance of their account. It reduces the time and money involved in asset transfers. Perhaps this is why US federal government spending on Blockchain shall reach $123.5 million by 2022.

3. Confidential transactions

Cryptocurrency purchases remain discreet. Unless a user voluntarily publishes his transactions, the purchase is never associated with their identity. In official scenarios, such as when you put your cars for sale, the parties must reveal an association with their cryptocurrencies. It helps to establish trust and relevance.

Within the cash/credit system, your entire transaction history turns into a reference document for the banks/credit agencies involved. On the contrary, cryptocurrency is a transaction that is a unique exchange between two parties. They can negotiate and agree on preferable terms. The information exchange takes place on the “push” basis. This means you transmit only that which you wish to send to the recipient and nothing else.

It keeps your financial history secure and guards you against identity theft. Chances of which are quite high under the traditional transaction system. 

On top of this, the combination of Blockchain with IoT is considered revolutionary by the experts. This has accelerated data exchange, lowering the operation costs, and improved the security of files. Your Tech Diet predicted that 75% of the IoT industry would adopt Blockchain technology by the end of 2020. Lack of exposure is, thus, something the entire industry is looking for.

4. Transaction Fee

You have probably faced hefty monthly account statements from your bank/credit companies. The transaction fee charged at every transaction you have made might leave you shocked. The whopping fee of multiple transactions can take you by surprise at the end of each month.

In the case of cryptocurrency exchange, the data miners receive their share from the cryptocurrency network involved. Transaction fee does not apply as the remote and separate computer systems that do the number-crunching get a pretty fair share. 

According to Investopedia, the Bitcoin reward for miners halves for every 210 000 blocks added to the chain. Nonetheless, this system has freed the transaction parties to pay the fee, making it the most feasible. 

However, there might be some external fee involved if you engage a third-party management service to maintain the crypto wallet. These charges are likely to be quite less than the transaction charges levied by the traditional banking system. 

5. Hold Ownership

The traditional banking system works in a manner where the amount goes to the nominee if a person passes away. The chances of the account closing are quite high when you infringe the terms of their services. Unlike this framework, digital currencies give you the sole ownership of private and public encryption keys. This makes it easier for you to identify the encryption network.

6. High security

Once a party authorizes the cryptocurrency transfer, they cannot reverse it. This is not the case in “charge-back” transactions allowed by the credit companies. Cryptocurrency gives you reliable encryption throughout the transaction process to keep it protected from bugs and malicious entities.

Systems like Binance Smart Chain are enabling people to do more with BTC.

Final Thoughts 

Cryptocurrency is taking the financial world by storm, and we know the reasons why. It is about time you kickstart your digital finances journey and make the most out of it. Who knows what surprises are about to come later in this landscape!

Cardano or PolkaDot? Which One to Invest In?

Published

on

Cardano vs Polkadot

There is a new battle in the crypto space.  Cardano (ADA) and PolkaDot (DOT) maximalists are headbutting as to which project is better and why.

The conversations are intense to say the least and we will try to provide our view on which one we are leaning toward and the reasons why, in this rather short article.

Just to be clear, we are invested in both ADA and DOT so we have a vested interest in both projects, however, we are now asked to pick one over the other and that brings us to this article.

Decentralization

The whole spirit of cryptocurrencies is the concept of decentralization, however, some of the more popular projects don’t seem to have a grasp of what that means.

Diem (previously Libra) or XRP etc., are controlled by a group for validators who could, in theory, easily collude, in our view.

With DOT, things are not as centralized as some other projects with about 1000 validators securing the platform.

However, ADA has the most number of nodes and has most of its circulating supply staked on its wallet. The community behind ADA has biggest proponents of decentralized frameworks.

ADA: 8 (top 10 is reserved for BTC)

DOT: 6

Team

Cardano boasts the maximum number of Ph.Ds on its team and has a more decentralized team structure.  You have teams that are working exclusively on wallet and staking while you have other teams focusing on interoperability. Yet, another team is focused on bridging projects from Ethereum to Cardano.

DOT has the ammunition of Gavin behind it. He is undoubtedly one of the brilliant minds in the space. 

However, as we learned in basic math, sum total is always greater than an individual unit.  This applies more aptly with these projects. In our opinion, Cardano has a greater edge when it comes to collective human capital.

Having Charles Hoskinson helps ADAs impression.

ADA: 8

DOT: 6

Social presence

There is no competition when it comes to social presence and engaging the community when it comes to the leaders of these two projects.

While DOT’s founder Gavin might come out as eccentric and polished in the social media, Charles takes the cake in engaging with his audience and making things sensible for the community.

ADA: 9 

DOT: 7

On a mission

Whenever you hear Charles speak about ADA you will immediately understand that he is on a mission to bring the marvels of blockchain enabled financial services to all corners of the world.

Cardano’s team is now focused on the South Africa continent to bring the under-previleged onto the world commerce through their platform. They are even close to signing a contract with Ethiopia government in 2021.

While DOT is catapulting the entire space forward it just lacks the same charm that comes with a project on a grandiose mission.

ADA: 8

DOT: 6 

Miscellaneous considerations 

Market cap: ADA has $20 Billion market cap while DOT has $19 Billion, as such they are on par with each other when it comes to valuation. The large cap is a stamp of approval from the crypto community.

Price: ADA is at around 60 cents while DOT has been stabilising at $20 at the time of this writing. When the newbies come to the market and they see they cannot afford Bitcoin or Ethereum, they will most likely go after the projects that are under $1. This does not mean DOT is inferior, it is just an edge that low priced tokens have over higher priced projects. It’s just a newbie mindset that drives higher demand during bull runs to lower priced projects.

Inflationary supply

DOT has an inflationary supply model while ADAs supply is capped.

Yes, DOTs supply is far larger than DOT, however, there is no new minting on ADA when compared to DOT.

Mainnet

DOTs technology is operational and is onboarding projects already.  ADA is scheduled to launch its mainnet this month (Feb 2021). ADA has been in works for many years now and if their product matches the hype and the wait – then it may not matter as much that they are late to the party. However, if there are issues with their mainnet – it may not bode well for ADA.

Conclusion: Total score

ADA: 33

DOT: 25

If you are a DOT fan you might think this score is skewed.   If you are an ADA fan you might think it should score perfect points in all fronts.

In fact, there are some areas where DOT is a clear winner like having a functioning platform. ADA, in our opinion, takes the prize with clear fandom, gigantic mission and a total brainiac project.

Best of the Best YouTube Channels to Follow for your Crypto Fix

Published

on

Best Crypto Youtubers

There are literally 100s of crypto-experts on YouTube who claim to have cracked the secret code that can make you millions in crypto riches. 

Who should you follow?  

We have followed many YouTubers, subscribing and unsubscribing to avoid the noise and after having been in this space for over 4 years, we have narrowed our favorite crypto YouTube channels to just a few.

In this article, we will show you our favorite YouTubers and what we like about each one of them. 

Overall number 1: Coin Bureau

coin bureau When it comes to deep analysis, composed demeanor and outright professional crypto channel in the entire space, we have not come across anyone better than Guy.  

Not only is he great at the reviews and in depth analysis, if you have followed the channel long enough you will realize that he reviews the gems long before others pick on the momentum.  

He picks solid projects, never shills a shitty project to his followers and is upfront about his views which he backs up with solid research.

This is the best no-shill and no bull crypto channel on YouTube in our view.

Best original content: Chico Crypto

chico crypto review

If you love a bit of quirky, goofy and somewhat out there viewpoints on the crypto space then there is no one better than Tyler at Chico Crypto. 

His investigation stretches the boundaries of research (and sometimes common sense) but he does do a bang up job on every video.  

I am yet to come across a boring video on this channel.  I will admit that his live streams can be a drag sometimes but his followers seem to relish his presence.

You may not like or agree with what Tyler presents on this channel but you will absolutely be floored by the originality.   

Best TA: TIED: Crypto Capital Venture & Tyler S

                         Crypto Capital Venture Tyler S crypto

With under 90K subscribers at the time of this writing, Dan may not be the most popular of the Crypto channels [yet] but his TA analysis is just so easy to follow.

Dan makes it easy for non-technical folks to understand what’s going on in the market in the language of TA.

There are other folks on YouTube who are good at TA but their videos are so obnoxious that they leave you with a massive headache.  

Not Dan’s Crypto Capital Venture channel.   Dan walks you through the markets in such a calm, composed and professional manner that you might start caring about those candles.

We are forced to share the Best Title for crypto TA on YouTube with Tyler S. 

Tyler’s expertise on TAs is quite awesome and he has a funny way of delivering it too.  

Best expertise on the markets: Alessio Rastani

Allesio RastaniIt doesn’t matter if you are just lurking around the crypto markets or if you trade in the traditional markets…Alessio is one of the best guys on YouTube for great insights into the broad market and its impact on Crypto.

While everyone on YouTube (not the people on this list, of course) is either quick to FOMO or FUD, Alessio is just grounded in fundamentals and technicals.

When you are high on FOMO, he can bring you to the ground.

When you are getting buried in FUD, he can lift you up with facts, not false hopium.

Alessio is personable, professional and an honest guy to follow to understand the markets ahead of others.

Best round up of the market: AltCoin Daily

Altcoin DailyWant to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in the crypto space but don’t have time to keep up?  

Fear not. AltCoin Daily got you covered.

This channel is just a gem among the channels that bring crypto market updates in a concise and palatable format.

You can sense the dedication in the way Austin brings the updates and his opinions in front of his audience. No wonder the channel has recently hit over 420K subscribers.

Best humble and honest take: Crazy 4 Cryptos

Crazy 4 crypto

What does Crypto mean to you?

Most people will say ‘Freedom’, yet, most of the YouTubers we see on the Tube will be broadcasting from their bedrooms or backyards (nothing wrong with that) but not Dave.

He has been in Thailand and streams his videos directly from the beach.

You will immediately connect with his simpleton style and honest reviews.  

He has been touting about Theta when it was trading in cents and now those who followed him are very happy.

Besides Theta, Dave talks about a lot of topics in terms of storing your coins, being careful with people and how to have a long-term plan in space.

Honorable mentions

Team Underground (TA)

We had too many channels to weed out for the TA category and that is why we had to pick two winners, however, Team Underground is a channel we cannot skip.

This underdog channel has been more right about the calls than any other mainstream channel. If you like your TAs and technical side of crypto – be sure to check this channel out.

BitBoy

People either love him or hate him.  There is no middle ground when it comes to BitBoy.  

Personally, we have to weed out a lot of noise while browsing through his channel since he picks a new project every few days (or weeks) and can become overwhelming. 

However, the fresh content is worth the watch.

EllioTraders

The guy behind this channel is truly vested in the space. So much so that he recently launched his own crypto project.

It’s definitely refreshing to see the YouTuber taking his expertise into a live project.  

The reason we did not list this channel on the BEST list is because of the constant feed of projects he pitches that is a bit overbearing for our taste.  

Nevertheless, a great channel and great recommendations.

Conclusion

There are 100s of YouTube channels out there but not everyone is worth your attention. We hope you found some channels of interest through this article.

Note: if we missed any gem of a channel, please let us know and we will be more than happy to add it after review.

Thank you for reading and sharing this article. We appreciate you.
