Amidst the rising hype of security tokens, Polymath Network is known as the most unique and promising blockchain projects. Since the beginning of Q2, its cryptocurrency $POLY has been experiencing a consistent gain in price point and exchange volume. Security tokens have emerged as a countermeasure to regulations issued on digital assets all around the world. All over the past weekend crypto markets showed its volatile nature. This is the reason people are still wondering if cryptocurrencies can replace the traditional banking systems and still be legally compliant? With SEC imposing new and harsher regulations on ICOs, polymath wants issuers to make use of their legal security Token Offerings. In this article, we shall discuss everything about Polymath Network and its recent performance.

The idea behind Polymath Network:

Polymath Network provides its users with a secure and flexible platform for issuing security tokens. Basically, what it does it to simplify the legal process which involves the creation and selling of security tokens. The new cryptocurrency standard provided by polymath is called ‘ST20’. This standard also enforces government compliance. Hence, token issuers and users do not have to worry about legal implications of any kind. In order to launch legally compliant tokens, Polymath Network accumulates different key aspects such as:

  • Issuers
  • Smart contract developers
  • Legal delegates
  • KYC verification
  • Decentralised Exchange

History of Polymath:

The Polymath Network project can be dated back to 2017. Its initial coin offering raised approximately $1.2 billion USD in funding by selling either utility or security tokens. By utility tokens we mean, the common tokens which give you the access to use a particular platform and its network, whereas security tokens provide a user with equity or a claim to dividends from a particular company which is why such tokens are subjected to government regulation. Starting from an ICO which is now listed among the largest cryptocurrencies, polymath network has come a long way since its creation.

Objectives of Polymath Network and $POLY:

Polymath offers a new standard for blockchain security tokens by merging its necessary regulatory requirements into smart contracts while being fully compliant with government’s security regulations. The team behind polymath believes that financial securities are better suited for blockchain. Throughout polymath network, shareholders are known as token holders. This network links the entire ecosystem behind the launching of an IPO using its smart contracts and POLY token which is an ERC-20 token. POLY is used as payments all over the polymath network and also as a reward for participation. Almost 46% of last year’s ICOs have failed and crashed since they were ultimately a ‘scam’ project. Many crypto enthusiasts and investors have lost the unimaginable amount of money because of such scams. That is why governments implemented harsh yet impartial regulatory framework for future ICOs and cryptocurrencies. The main advantage of polymath network is not only that it issues government and regulation-friendly digital assets but also that it minimizes fraud, misrepresentations, and other rip-offs.

Notable Achievements in Q1:

The success and better performance of POLY are dependent on partnerships made by Polymath Network team. They need to gather more legal delegates, KYC providers, Developers, Buyers, and Issuers. During the first quarter of 2018, polymath has made headlines about their meaningful partnerships with companies like IdentityMind. After that, they announced their most significant airdrop which surmounted to 240 million POLY tokens. One of the biggest digital identity system ‘Selfkey’ and KYC associated company ‘BnkToTheFuture’ are expected to collaborate with Polymath Network. In addition to that, many notable blockchain based companies such as Ethereum Capital, SeriesX, and Corl Financial Technologies have plans to create and issue their security tokens using the Polymath Network platform. Back in April polymath announced two new and strong partnerships. One about verification service for security token offerings with Trustroot which is the leading blockchain security platform. The second collaboration was with CrowdfundX to deliver investor marketing for security token issuers powered by AI.

Market & Trading Position:

Polymath’s biggest airdrop was completed on 24th January this year and the value of POLY started with $0.78 USD approximately. This value reached its all-time peak position of $1.64 USD soon afterward. But at the time of writing, it is ranked as the 95th cryptocurrency the individual price of POLY equals to $0.852 USD and it’s depreciating at a rate of 7.35% according to CoinMarketCap. Polymath tokens are available on exchanges such as KuCoin, Bittrex, and Upbit. The value of POLY depends solely on the usability of polymath platform. If more coins are issued on ST20 standard, then this figure is likely to show some bullish trends.

Final thoughts

Although, the core idea behind issuing a cryptocurrency that is safeguarded by government regulations is a dream come true for many crypto enthusiasts however it is much complex to achieve. That is why Polymath has a long way ahead of it. But with its enthusiastic and experienced team, this project is worth monitoring as it can jump to $1 USD soon enough.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
