Top 5 Long term Cryptocurrencies

Published

on

top 5 longterm Alt Coins

This article is not intended as a price prediction, nor is it a ‘moon soon’ piece. This article’s sole aim is to share top 5 long-term cryptocurrency projects that we think have a fair chance on being around for longer than others, and hopefully be a permanent part of the blockchain ecosystem based on the strong fundamentals of the project, particularly in relation to:

  • Use case

  • Team

  • Historical progress

We will not include the obvious choices, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Almost everyone who has been in this space for any period of time would have quickly realized that Bitcoin could emerge as global reserve and store of value, and Ethereum could be the platform of the future utilized by most Blockchain projects.

Price action for these two projects will be progressive, and saturation may not be in sight for another decade.

Having said that, we are going to skip projects like and specifically, XRP. You can find all the reasons why we skip XRP here. It may turn out to be an absolute hit, but it goes against the spirit of decentralization in our opinion, and hence, we will not recommend it.

With those basic and important considerations out of the way, let’s begin:

our 5th cryptocurrency pick is Elastos

Our 5th cryptocurrency pick is Elastos (ELA)

This is a wildcard pick of sorts. The idea, if successful, could lay the foundation to a ‘smart internet’ model. That statement is not to be taken lightly. If Elastos pulls off its grandiose plans, then its original ICO price of $20 per token shall appear like a mole on an elephant. For context, its ICO price alone represents 5x gains.

However, price action is not the sole determinant of altcoins, including Elastos. It is the fundamentals of the project and the grand vision, a vision as big as the internet itself.

Use case: What better use case can be found of blockchain than to transform the internet itself? Elastos wants to tackle the basic tenet of vulnerability and hackability of the internet by building a better version of the internet from the ground up – a lofty ambition that makes this such a bold pick. However, this is a necessary step in order to stabilize the foundations of the internet if we were to zoom into the future of 5G, driverless cars and robotized future. We need an internet that is decentralized, secure, and unhackable. Elastos may just be the project to address this mighty task.

TeamElastos has a full-fledged team to carry out the functions of the foundation for developing Elastos blockchain. Their blockchain team consists of 28 engineers who are led by Shunan Yu. Check out the full line up here.

Historical Progress:

Right from its introduction video to year-end reports, Elastos sets a different set of quality standards in the crypto space. Beyond the glitter, Elastos carries the proof of performance. From their whitepaper “Elastos is open-source software whose development process has been sponsored by industry giants such as the Tsinghua Science Park, the TD – SCDMA Industrial Alliance and the Foxconn Group for more than 200 million RMB. Elastos has published more than ten million lines of source code, including four million lines of original source code.”

Beyond its boasting credentials during the ICO, Elastos has consistently been progressing towards its mission. They post weekly update which does not seem to care about the market corrections or bear markets. This is another mark of a company with a mission.

Fourth cryptocurrency pic is Cardano

The fourth cryptocurrency pick is Cardano (Ada)

When we think of Cardano, we think of the cluster of mad scientists who may someday change the world or be forgotten as the so-called mad scientists. Charles Hoskinson, his Ph.D. profile team, their IoHK Technology company backing massive initiatives are all unique to Cardano.

In our view, no other blockchain or crypto project comes close to the human capital of Cardano.

There are a few issues with their Daedalus wallet, but their customer support is impeccable. Their road map is rather long and slow for blockchain pace; however, the team’s systematic approach in executing their vision is one to behold. Ouroboros, Cardano’s Proof of Stake, promises to be one of the most mathematically accurate and fair systems out there.

IOHK | Ouroboros Genesis: A Provably Secure Proof-of-Stake Blockchain Protocol

Ouroboros Genesis – New research for Cardano We’re very proud to announce Ouroboros Genesis, a new paper from the IOHK research team. This latest version of …

Use caseCardano’s use case is difficult to pin down to one or two since its goal is to be the underlying blockchain technology layer for others to build their specific blockchain projects, similar to Ethereum. They have, in fact, wrapped Ethereum Classic into the Cardano ecosystem.

Team:

Cardano’s team consists of teams from 3 different entities working in collaboration to bring life to Cardano ecosystem. These include: Cardano, Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) and Emurgo. Click on those links to see the sheer size and quality of the teams working on Cardano ecosystem, be prepared to be blown away.

Historical progressCardano has a comprehensive update section dedicated to keeping everyone up-to-date on where things stand. You can check it here. Here is a video that walks through all the updates that have gone into the project:

third cryptocurrency pic is Basic Attention Token

Basic Attention Token

Basic Attention Token radically improves the efficiency of digital advertising by creating a new unit of exchange between publishers, advertisers and users. It all happens on the Ethereum blockchain. The value of the token is based on user attention, which simply means a person’s focused mental engagement.

Facebook and YouTube make billions of dollars based on content created by its users and the attention of other users to this content. In return, users get penalized with bills for data usage and lost time.

User attention is such a valuable commodity that some of the platforms go to lengths to track user behavior disregarding privacy concerns. Browsers play an essential role in exploiting user behavior to present them with content that grabs their attention so that they can display more ads.

Use case: BAT has one of the most readily realizable use-cases of blockchain and cryptocurrency. The idea is simple. You start using Brave browser. You get free BAT tokens that you can use to tip your favorite publishers. Publishers can also use BAT tokens to reward users for their attention (time) for viewing their ads or pitch. You can consciously choose whether or not you want to view a certain ad (which is not the case in the conventional model).

Basic attention token team of members

Basic attention token team of members

Team: Basic Attention Token, which is part of Brave browsing ecosystem, comes from the mind of Brendan Eich, the “creator of JavaScript and the co-founder of Mozilla and Firefox.” BAT is backed by a solid team of developers and well-known venture capital firms.

Historical progressBrave browser has seen an increase in monthly active users from 1 million at the beginning of 2018 to 5.5 million by the end of 2018. This is only growing by the day as more and more users realize the potential of BAT. As of 2018, Brave app was downloaded on 10 million Android-based smartphones.

According to the unofficial BAT growth tracking website, number of Brave browser publishers has crossed 161,000 as of June 2019. Of the 24,000 website publishers LA Times joining BAT ecosystem made ripples in the financial news market.  As of June 2019, the website publisher list includes The Guardian and Washington Post, along with Archive and Vimeo.  

Remember, we have not even begun realizing the potential of blockchain and decentralized advertising, and when that becomes a reality and user base reaches over 100 million, it can add a lot of fuel to the limited supply of 1.5 billion tokens.

In our view, Facebook’s recent announcement to create its own crypto, dubbed as Libra, is only an indication of where the blockchain and crypto space is heading, and based on the historical performance of BAT, we excitedly await what BAT does in the future.

Be part of the blockchain revolution, start using Brave browser today.  Thank you for using our referral link.

2nd pick is Icon(Iconex)Our 2nd pick is Icon (Iconex)If you have been following CryptoTapas, you know we are big proponents of ICON. We have been following this project before the ICO to date, and we believe this project has potential. At one point, their marketing and communications sucked, but they fixed it in due course.

One of the most professional teams in the blockchain and crypto space, right from the way they handled ICO with KYC and AML protocols to the way they vetted every profile before releasing tokens to ensure they have not tripped any wires.

How about the fact that none of their founders or team members had once talked about the price action from when it was 11 cents to when it was trading at $15 to when it is currently trading at 35 cents.

The team just keeps their focus intact and presses on to accomplishing the goals on the road map — a through and through professional company in this space.

Use case: ICON is a flexible blockchain platform that accommodates traditional smart contracts, sharding, and even STOs, which got included in their road map.

ICON ICX TeamTeam:ICON team consists of veterans from the real business world, not people from academics or day dreamers. In fact, their team size is one of the larger and more professionally organized ones. Look at these statistics.A total of 150 team members. Dan Tapscott, who is an iconic figure in the blockchain space, is on ICON’s advisory group.

JH Kim, ICON’s CEO and Min Kim are favorites in the ICON social circles. Their responses to trolls commenting on their slow progress have been praised by many.

Historical progressICON has been surgical in its approach to spreading its reach; not just in South Korea, but in the rest of the world. They have started a grassroots movement in bringing awareness at the university level for blockchain and encourage the brightest to come up with ideas. If these ideas get selected, they are funded by the ICON Foundation along with providing guidance. In a country like South Korea, to be recognized as the National Blockchain platform and to seep into the minds of the future right out of college is a masterstroke and one that shows their long-term strategy.

ICON also introduced a launch pad, which is ICON’s technical support to help companies leverage blockchain technology in their businesses without having to worry about technical guidance.

Their partnerships with Insurance companies, banks, universities, businesses, other crypto projects will probably take up double digit pages, you can check them out here and in our previous updates on ICON here and here.

All in all, they may not rule over the world right away, but they have a good chance of becoming the dominant force in South Korea, and we all know what happens to the technology companies that rule the South Korean market.

ICON will have staking opportunity. The only downside, a big one at that, is that with the consent of node participants, they can keep increasing the supply of ICON at 20% if it is deemed necessary for the overall health of the network.

Is this the end of XRP?

Published

on

XRP Crash

Our dislike for XRP is well documented on our site…if you have missed them, here is a list of articles where we have made our opinion based disdain clear…

Why we do not support nor invest in Ripple

Ripple or not to Ripple? ‘Definitely not’ says a research report

5 questions we want XRP army to answer!

This is not a personal attack, mind you.  

We just don’t like the idea of a private company printing billions of dollars worth of money that is centrally controlled which goes against the spirit of crypto space.  This is our opinion and we are sticking with it.

Yes, we understand that we might be missing out on life-transforming gains on XRP by staying away from it.  It is OK with us. 

We generally do not trade based on sentiment, however, XRP has always been an exception given what we want Crypto space to represent.

Given all that, we were not surprised at all when the latest FUD around SEC investigation into XRP came out.

Is this the beginning of the end for XRP?

“Justice is on the side that can afford the best attorney” is the common joke in my country…and that seems to hold true for the world in general.

If we are forced into speculating, this is what might transpire in our view:

  • When drafting this article, we were of the opinion that SEC might just let this go through a simple fine (similar to EOS), however, after reading the complaint lodged by SEC we are not really sure that Ripple may be able to get off the hook that easy 
  • Ripple and SEC might compromise on a way forward in terms of reporting requirements, however, if SEC gets what they are going for – Ripple and Garlinghouse may not be able to continue their ‘sale’ of XRP
  • Ripple may use this ‘excuse’ to move its headquarters to a more ‘friendlier’ location outside the US, however, an unfavorable outcome from SEC could jeopardise its chances in most locations
  • Major exchanges could distance themselves from XRP until an outcome emerges to avoid getting caught selling unregistered ‘securities’

Is XRP a security?

We think so.  Of course, the court will have to rule the final verdict but here are the reasons why we personally think XRP is not like other cryptos.

  • Most projects actually are working on a solution and the revenue is dependent on the success and adoption of the project.  On the contrary, XRP had minted 100 Billion at the beginning of the project and kept bringing 1 Billion at a time to add cash to their business.  This means, whether or not there is any adoption – Ripple (and owners) made money by simply selling XRP.  At the time of this writing, owners still control billions worth XRP.  
  • Most projects that run an ICO have a majority of coins distributed to the investors…creators have little say in the way those coins then get circulated…take for example, EOS.  Although the company raised $4 Billion through ICO – they got away with a slap on the wrist because the owners do not control the majority of coins anymore
  • Ripple/XRP executives were caught bragging about how they can sell XRP to keep the business going (notice, they talked about selling XRP to make gains more times than the adoption bringing success);  Unfortunately, these talks are all public records and the SEC may use these in the court proceedings
  • Pages 9 and 10 of the lawsuit is really important where SEC claims that Ripple was warned about XRP being considered a security by a law firm, however, Ripple disregarded these warnings…excerpt 57 and 58 from the lawsuit

“57. On May 26, 2014, Larsen explained in an email to an individual formerly associated with Ripple that the international law firm that wrote the Legal Memos advised “that investors and employees could not receive XRP” because that “could risk SEC designation [as] a security.” Larsen also explained that the XRP he received upon Ripple’s founding was “comp[ensation] for . . . personally assuming th[e] risk” of being deemed the issuers of securities—namely, XRP. 

  1. In other words, as Larsen himself explained, he was paid at the outset in an asset (potentially worth hundreds of millions of dollars) to assume a risk he knew existed—that the sale of the asset could constitute an offering of securities for which he would be held responsible.” 
  • There are allegations that Ripple paid companies to use XRP to ‘hide’ the fact that Ripple is difficult/expensive to use (this in the lawsuit), take a read.

“339. Much of the onboarding onto ODL was not organic or market-driven. Rather, it was subsidized by Ripple. Though Ripple touts ODL as a cheaper alternative to traditional payment rails, at least one money transmitter (the “Money Transmitter”) found it to be much more expensive and therefore not a product it wished to use without significant compensation from Ripple.

Is this an attack on the entire Crypto industry?

We do not think so.

If the SEC wins this case, it will set a precedent against having ‘centralized’ control on the projects without being treated as a security, however, it is unlikely to stifle the projects that do not have centralized control on the supply and sale of the coins, in our opinion.

Our whole [opinion] contention from the beginning has been that XRP does not fit the definition of cryptocurrency.  If anything, we are surprised that the SEC took this long to bring the charges.

It does not matter what we think about the project, what matters is the outcome of this battle. 

Will the SEC make an example of Ripple or will Ripple find a way to circumvent these proceedings.

Things might get very interesting going into 2021 for Ripple, Garlinghouse and XRP.Note: We have to do this to avoid harassment from the XRP army, in case you missed it earlier, this is our speculative opinion.  No one knows what might actually happen.

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

Stay safe and healthy!

Transforming Data Center Infrastructure With Blockchain

Published

on

Blockchain Infrastructure

Cryptocurrency – just hearing the name – can spark discussion topics on how innovative and controversial it is. However, nowadays, there seems to be a consensus that blockchain – the technological backbone of every form of cryptocurrency – is the former. The latter part of the discussion comes from the fact that cryptocurrency is still new, and needs more improvement, before it can actually be considered a wildly-accepted type of commercial (public) currency.

On the bright side, companies like Google and Goldman Sachs have already started to invest in various blockchain firms. And, it’s expected that sometime in the future, more big-name companies will follow suit, if cryptocurrency succeeds. Therefore, data centers and cloud hosting services must be ready to serve these new blockchain-based companies, as well as their needs, in the coming years.

So, you may be wondering: How did we get here? 

How Did It Start?

Modern blockchain started in 2008 with Bitcoin, which is a peer-to-peer Electronic Cash System. This white paper was a form of cryptocurrency that could live on a distributed network without any centralized authority; and blockchain is the technical backbone of that system, or a distributed digital ledger or database for it. No central authority will be able to manipulate the blockchain, since the whole network contributes to its creation and maintenance.

How It Works

In blockchain, two parties will make a transaction, to which they advertise it to the network. Then, various network nodes pick up multiple transactions, and arrange them into blocks. Afterwards, miners will use computers to add this block to the ledger (or blockchain).

Now, in order to add these blocks to the blockchain, the task requires a lot of computing power. Why? Because each of these blocks come with a sort of attached mathematical puzzle. And, to solve these puzzles, they need computing resources. But don’t worry: these puzzles are what miners are interested in, because they’re usually rewarded with tokens, just for adding a block to the blockchain.

Before the existence of blockchain though, business transaction would’ve been made through a trusted third-party company (i.e. a bank or a government institution), in order to guarantee the integrity of a transaction between two parties. However, blockchain eliminates that need by opening up the possibility for business transactions between parties worldwide, without the need for any financial or government institutions to step in. 

What Blockchain Means For GPUs

The need for blockchain means elevated demand for graphical processing units (or GPUs). As blockchain calculates, miners will have to provide enough computing power for it. And, as cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based applications become more popular, the higher the demand for computing power. That’s where GPUs come in, since blockchain-based calculations are best performed on these units. 

Data centers and cloud-hosting services will also have to look into AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards, in order to better serve the blockchain market; however, these graphics cards can be pricey. And, they’ll have to better optimize their infrastructure to be GPU-compatible.

Concerns?

The most controversy that cryptocurrency has faced is its vulnerability to possible hacking schemes. One can argue that there are major concerns about blockchain hackers taking – or planning to take – advantage of the fact that cryptocurrency doesn’t have enough protection yet to sustain itself, in case of a security breach that can cost millions.

Concerns on cybersecurity for data centers, in that case, seems to have spawned from cryptocurrency market’s promise of immense riches and overnight successes, to where anyone – including bad actors and hackers – will create an ever-growing threat in the cyber realm.

“One example of hacking of cryptocurrency was in January of 2018, when hackers were able to steal more than $500 million (or £380 million) worth of cryptocurrency from the Tokyo-based cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck,” adds Barnard. “Thus, that story, to this day, serves as a warning to what can happen, if cryptocurrency is unchecked. And, this story has many people concerned about whether cryptocurrency is safe to invest in or not.”

Conclusion

As you can see, data centers will have to go above and beyond to better accommodate the growing trend of cryptocurrency. And, to do so, they’ll need a good functioning digital infrastructure, to handle blockchain systems and increasing data processing demands.

This need for the right data center infrastructure is also increasing, since blockchain is expected to greatly impact the following:

  • Finance
  • Healthcare
  • Government
  • Transportation
  • Manufacturing
  • Medicine
  • Logistics
  • Other various industries 

Thus, it’s absolutely necessary for data center service providers to stay competitive, when it comes to such changes in technology, including blockchain. Ultimately, with an up-to-date infrastructure for blockchain to work on, data centers will be able to be sustainable, regardless of any changes and or developments made in the tech world for many years to come.

So if you want to gain a bigger understanding on what Bitcoin is, and why it’s so important in today’s world… or if you want to educate others on why Bitcoin is NOT something out of a science fiction movie (no pun intended), then check out these 5 great movies.

Cryptopia: Bitcoin, Blockchains And The Future Of The Internet (2020)

Cryptopia Bitcoin Blockchains and the Future of the InternetCryptopia is an ideal film for novice cryptocurrency people. So, if you’re a newbie in the crypto world, or want to brush up on your crypto skills, then check out this documentary. 

This film is a deep-dive into the crypto world, and it doesn’t shy away from explaining the good things about crypto, as well as the negative parts of it. Yes, crypto can be both a Godsend and a curse, depending on how you look at the narratives you’ll listen you in the documentary. In hindsight, the movie will explore the story of bitcoin, and how it has managed to evolve through the years with its ongoing promises that crypto is “the future.”

So, whether you’re a skeptic, or you want to learn more about crypto, you’ll get to see both sides of the debate – as a better alternative to regular currency in the future, or a financial disaster in the making. Either way, this documentary will answer any questions that you might have about crypto.

The Rise And Rise Of Bitcoin (2014)

The Rise and Rise of BitcoinEver wondered how cryptocurrency became a thing? Then check out The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin! The film covers the stories of some of the early adopters of Bitcoin, including Gavin Andresen who was famous for communicating directly with Satoshi Nakamoto to help him create better technology. (By the way, Nakamoto is mostly famous for authoring the Bitcoin white paper, and for devising the first blockchain database.

Overall, this movie was one of the major productions to cover the main points, in regards to how Bitcoin and its assets were created to begin with.

The Second Target (2019)

The Second TargetThe Second Target was written by Graham Holliday, and stars Athen Walton. The movie follows a group of local crypto thieves now having their eyes set on their latest target.

While you’ll be immersed in the action, you’ll be learning the basics of what crypto is.

Trust Machine: The Story Of Blockchain (2018)

Trust Machine understands that almost a decade has passed, since the crypto world has transformed things. Since its existence came to be, many different cryptocurrencies have been created, with a small percentage of them expected to stand the test of time after the dust settles. While some people are still skeptical about the concept of cryptocurrencies, there are some parts of the world where people actually use cryptocurrencies as a way to buy things. However, other places have faced significant problems, as a result of exchanging goods with crypto within the industry.

Crypto (2019)

Crypto MovieCrypto, despite its panning from critics, has garnered somewhat of a fanbase. With a stellar star cast like Alexis Bledel, Luke Hemsworth, and Jeremie Harris, it’s hard to not see this movie. And, with a thriving fanbase, this movie is not only for movie fans, but also for crypto fans. 

The story follows an anti-money laundering agent (Beau Knaff) who reunites with an old friend who’s now into mining cryptocurrency. Now, with a potato farm being on the verge of being repossessed, the two soon investigate a gallery, which may be tied into a multi-million-dollar money laundering scheme. 

It’s action-packed, and it has you cheering for the protagonists as you follow the story from beginning to end.

BONUS: Throwback Movie – Inside Job (2010)

Inside Job covers the actions that made Bitcoin a household name in the first place. The movie sells the concept as a type of currency that can’t be manipulated, controlled, or corrupted by any government. 

However, the main topic of the documentary involves the late-2000s financial crisis. In 5 parts, the film will cover how changes in the policy environment and banking practices only added more fuel to the fire, rather than stop the crisis in its tracks. 

Critically acclaimed, and winning an Academy Award for Best Documentary, Inside Job will have you on the edge of your seat, as it takes you through the financial crash. All information in this documentary, as well as its controversial topic, are understandable for most audiences, regardless if you know about cryptocurrency or not.
