Blockchain Technology’s Next Big Superstar

  • First off, when doing an ICO, a company should develop its own tokens, which requires an in-depth understanding of blockchain principles and technology.
  • In order to further legitimize the ICO process, Sasha founded Waves in 2016, an open source cryptocurrency platform that allows individuals to issue and transfer custom blockchain tokens, and trade them on an integrated peer-to-peer exchange.

  • While this has little to do with blockchain technology, it’s proof that many of us now regard “physical cash” as a burden.
  • Spectre, the disruptive platform that removes financial brokers out of the equation and decentralizes and tokenises the liquidity pool against which traders trade, is an example of the decentralization benefits of the blockchain, and why many traders are choosing cryptocurrencies over more “tradtional” investments, such as stocks and bonds.

It’s been a crazy year for bitcoin. Not only has it comfortably surpassed the $4,000 mark, it’s now accepted by a variety of major online retailers – eve…
