Strongest Altcoin Developer Teams in the Crypto Space Right Now

Published

on

altcoin developer teams

It has been 10 full years since Bitcoin has gone live, and the coin has gone through a lot of development during that time. However, since some of its core issues still lack proper solutions, a lot of developers decided to try and provide alternatives for the first crypto, new coins that will address its largest problems early on.

These are known as altcoins, and they include every digital currency apart from Bitcoin itself, which inspired their creation. Today, there are over 2,100 altcoins, all of which are trying to compete with one another, as well as Bitcoin itself in one way or another.

However, none of them would have a strong presence, or even be here after a year as difficult as 2018, if they didn’t have strong, capable teams behind them. With that in mind, here are some of the strongest and most capable altcoin developer teams in the current crypto market.

1) Ethereum team

Ethereum is considered by many to be the second most important cryptocurrency in crypto history, even though it lost the second place on the list of largest coins to XRP. Ethereum is important because it shifted developers and investors’ focus from the coin to its blockchain. It opened an entirely new world of possibilities and inspired the creation of dApps and smart contracts.

Even now, Ethereum continues its development with new solutions, some of which were introduced in several hard forks only days ago. This was all possible thanks to its developers, which used to be represented by its co-founder, Vitalik Buterin. Even though Buterin recently decided to step down for the position of Ethereum team’s public face, he is still one of the top developers that the coin has, which still inspires trust in its future.

2) Cardano team

Cardano is another coin which is known for its very capable team, led by its creator, Charles Hoskinson. Hoskinson has had a long history with crypto, and he was there for the creation and early development of Ethereum, as well as Ethereum Classic. While he left both teams due to disagreements, he brought the knowledge regarding those two coins with him, which allowed him to create a new, potentially better coin — Cardano (ADA).

In a way, Cardano is one of the hopes for the future of crypto. It aims to resolve some of the most problematic issues regarding digital currencies, such as scalability and interoperability. Meanwhile, it has a team leader who contributed to the development of ETH, the main representative of the second generation of digital currencies. Because of this, many hope to see Cardano grow to be the representative of the third generation of crypto.

3) Binance Coin team

Many are likely already familiar with Binance Coin (BNB), as it is the native cryptocurrency of the world’s largest crypto exchange, Binance. The coin was created to be used on the exchange’s platform for paying different kinds of fees, and it has become quite popular, mostly because using it means getting a considerable discount.

The coin’s team is appreciated for several reasons, mostly due to their insight into what its users need. As such, they managed to create a cryptocurrency that addresses these needs, and BNB has generally made all the right moves since it was created.

4) Monero team

Finally, there is a team behind the privacy coin, Monero. Monero is considered to be one of the best privacy coins around, as privacy is one of the most desirable aspects of the internet. Those who use privacy coins can hide their transaction details, including identities and the amount of coin they are sending.

With that being said, the crypto space as we know it today was created with transparency in mind, which is why privacy coins are not tolerated in many of the largest exchanges. Regulators around the world also dislike them, as they are believed to be used for illegal activities. However, even with all the negativity surrounding privacy coins, Monero’s developers still managed to create a strong coin that does its job correctly, and still remains one of the most used coins today.

GDA Capital in Conversation About the Future of Digital Assets at Global Family Office Summit

Published

on

GDA Capital organized the quarterly Global Family Office Summit this week. The event was held virtually with a number of technology leaders and high net worth investors who discussed issues such as education, trust and responsibility to give back. Among these were insightful conversations with Dubai-based Dalma Capital’s CEO Zachari Cefaratti, Holt Fintech Accelerator founder Brendan Hold Dunn, Global Data Sentinel CEO and White City Ventures Chairman of the Board Shahal Khan, and Elitium CEO Raoul Milhado, among others. Participants were also given access to off-market opportunities to invest in novel technologies.

Will Bartlett, GDA Capital’s Director of Research, headlined the event by focusing on tech in the modern economy, and identifying six sectors where new technologies can make a lasting impact: robotics, space, biotech, machine learning, quantum computing, and blockchain. In the context of blockchain, he discussed how digital assets are a hedge against traditional financial markets. “Cryptocurrencies have no exposure to stock market returns, macroeconomic factors, or returns of currencies and commodities,” Bartlett said.

More so, Bartlett believes that new models for digital assets such as DigitalBits’ branded stablecoins are key to the development of the field. These currencies replace traditional rewards and loyalty point systems that are commonly used by household brands by porting them to the blockchain. Meanwhile, they rely on brand…

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…

Additionally, Messari and the XDB Foundation “may explore the buildout of a novel registry to accommodate branded currencies tokenized on DigitalBits. This registry would address issues consumers face when determining the legitimacy of branded currencies and their respective organizations,” the announcement said today.  The goal is to provide a standardized framework for organizations leveraging branded currencies, certifying asset legitimacy, and clearly outlining characteristics including but not limited to asset issuance and organization identity.

Commenting on the news, Messari representatives said they recognize the potential for the use of branded currencies to grow in the future as more enterprises embrace blockchain technology. Ben O’Neill, Vice President, BD & Operations at Messari said the Registry will help all…
