Joseph Lubin: Introduction of Blockchain Technology Leads to Rapid Growth in the Global Economy

CEO of ConsenSys during his speech at the SXSW conference stated that the massive introduction of blockchain technology will allow the global economy to grow 10 times in just a couple of decades.

He stressed that there aren’t a lot of ordinary people now who are using products based on distributed ledger technology in their everyday life. After that, he compared the blockchain technology with e-mail which was not so widely popular in the 80s of the XX century.  

“There weren’t a lot of ‘normal’ people firing email around in 1983.”

Besides this, in his speech, Joseph Lubin recalled the upcoming Euthereum 2.0 update. He believes that a new version of Vitalik Buterin’s creation won’t have so many of the current flaws. Lubin also said a few words about the first cryptocurrency:

“In Bitcoin and currently in Ethereum, you need to have specialized hardware, burn lots of electricity, waste lots of computation, to basically keep everybody in sync. [With Ethereum 2.0, in 18 months] we’ll have a blockchain system much more powerful and scalable that uses orders of magnitude less energy.”

Broke Pierce Predicts Crypto and Blockchain Future in 2019: DApps, STOs, Gaming

Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are fast-growing industries which are showing great results in worldwide recognition at the moment. 2017 was the year of ICO and crypto rise, astronomical growth of cryptocurrency prices attracted a lot of investors and governments’ attention. Though, in 2018 the massive mainstream slowed down a bit due to a bearing market, yet, the crypto is not fully terminated. The blockchain technology, in its turn, started to gain momentum last year, thus many people think that 2019 is going to the year of blockchain.

Broke Peirce is a famous American entrepreneur which plays an important role in crypto world. In February 2018, Forbes put Pierce in the “top 20 wealthiest people in crypto” with an estimated net worth between $700 million and $1.1 billion. Let us look at the predictions that Pierce made.

dApps

Decentralized applications are computer apps that run on DLT, they are starting their own way on platforms like Ethereum, Tron, Cardano, but they definitely have future. Pierce said that dApps have to be scalable, fee-less and frictionless, since no one needs internet if “it’s slow, costs money and doesn’t’ scale.”

“We’re going to see big things being built, multiple applications hitting a million users,” Pierce said. “I love the fact that prices are down. When prices are up, very little gets built because teams don’t stick around. Everyone is getting rich too quick and that de-motivates people. All the best things I’ve seen built in this ecosystem have been built in bear markets.”

STOs

Security tokens have gained people’s trust long ago, as they work better and are more regulated than their brother – ICO. Pierce reckons that STOs will bring a lot of money to the market, because we will be able to see a massive “tokenization of the world’s fiat money, debt market, real estate, equities, and art.”

He thinks that STOs are the next wave in the development of capital markets. Unfortunately, ICOs did not manage to protect most of their customers, thus STOs is the future. Pirce assures:

“STOs are designed for investors and can have many provisions that are there to protect market participants.”

Gaming

Broke Pierce is famous not only in crypto world, but also in gaming industry,thereby he can see a cross-over and foresee that the gaming will thrive in 2019.

“Gaming is going to be a huge part of it,” states Pierce. “The earliest adopters at scale of crypto were gamers. That’s why Korea and China are so big. These were the markets where people played video games and bought and sold virtual currency for games like Second Life and World of Warcraft.”

To predict anything is always hard, we therefore cannot guarantee that above-mentioned will come true, yet we trully believe that digital revolution, including dApps, STOs and gaming, is about to come.

The South Korean Blockchain Backed By Messaging Giant Kakao Raised $90M in Private Sale

Crypto subsidiary of Kakao Corp. raised $90 million in private sale, yet there is more to come. On March 12, today, it is planning to raised the same sum of money to launch its blockchain platform in June 2019.

Ground X is a crypto unit which was formed back in May 2018 to develop a blockchain-powered platform. Some representatives say that the initial plan was by creating such a platform to integrate blockchain services into existing internet offering provided by Kakao, including messaging app Kakao Talk.

The CEO of Ground X, Jason Han, gave a small interview regarding to the private sale round. He said that the sale reached its target sum despite the plunge of cryptocurrency market in 2018. He also stated that companies like IDG Capital, Cresendo Equity Partners and Translink Capital had participated in the round.

The Tokyo-based Ground X has launched a test network, called Klaytn, not so long ago. It has teamed up with 26 different companies, including video game developer Wemade, video streaming platform Watcha, Chinese travel agency Zanadu. These companies have millions of active users every day. The company also plans to work with the Seoul Digital Foundation to implement blockchain in social and public services.

Han previously talked about blockchain decentralization, where he claimed:

“The token economy is a business model that no one could have imagined before. Until now, Kakao has only operated in Korea, but through blockchain we could expand into the global market. That means taking a portion of the profits we earn as an intermediary and using it to expand our market by sharing it with users.”
