Ethereum, EOS or NEO – What’s the best DApp platform right now?

There’s not a doubt that Ethereum has been dominating the DApp market for a decent period of time now, and this is something that is supported with stats as it is expected that the second largest cryptocurrency of the market, Ethereum is expected to power 2000 DApps by the end of the year.

However, we need to keep into account that more platforms are built every day to represent a competition for Ethereum, and the same way, to improve the deficiencies that still are present on the platform and that, in this case, leaves an opportunity for other cryptos.

This is a market that continues its growth as each day passes. In fact, this year alone around $14 billion dollars have been collected in 394 ICOs that have been deployed so far (half of them crashed right after four months of their take off), many of which have been constructed through Ethereum’s platform.

But even when a great amount of money has been collected, the value is still not that representational as when we take a closer look, there are not that many DApps out there being recognized and utilized by the masses.

Ethereum still needs to solve certain issues to keep DApp developers on its platform. For instance, scalability, the speed of transactions, and the integration of more common programming languages such as Java or C. In the meanwhile, other platforms rise as a likely option to migrate. NEO and EOS are two top among them.

NEO platform

One of the platforms that are out there and that may be a good option to migrate is NEO, a platform built under Ethereum’s protocols. The NEO platform resolves the matchability problem that Ethereum has when it comes to programming languages, having the option of building a DApp in languages such as C, C++, Java, and JavaScript.

Similarly, it offers an important diversification having two different assets, NEO GAS and NEO Shares, which function as the “fuel” of the blockchain and the governance channel respectively. Finally, when it comes to the Proof-of-Stake mechanism, NEO promotes a non-collaboration of their shareholders on speculation activities, which, of course, represent a great benefit for both the network and the users.

In contrast to this, one could say that NEO has a complex relationship with the Chinese government, and the same way, the costs of developing a DApp are considerably high, going around $6000 dollars.

EOS platform

In the very beginning, EOS started as an ICO built on the Ethereum protocols, which means the token was actually ERC-20 based. However, the platform recently became independent from Ethereum when it built and launched its own blockchain dubbed EOSIO, on June 10.

The platform offers a wide range of services, including cloud storage, and accounts, and additionally has a remarkable speed of transaction that allows the platform to manage a huge number of apps and smart contracts at once.

On the negative side, the platform has been strongly criticized because of the nature of the supply, which is mainly centralized, and the same way, because of the possibilities of the community to act under their ‘constitution’ and deploy unconstitutional decisions at a time.

In fact, Nick Szabo, a famous cryptographer and computer scientist, turned to Twitter and commented,

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

Ripple

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
