A lot of "ETH killers" seem to be focused on creating a scalable system, with zillions of transactions per second while "not sacrifying decentralization". Which is absurd when you think about it, because the more nodes you have, the slower you system, that's just logical. So how can you have a more scalable system, while remaining as decentralized as you were before? It's just not possible. What projects need to look for, is the right path, which is in the middle, as always. You don't want to be too decentralized, but not centralized. You don't want to be too scalable, but not unscalable. And you don't want to be too secure, but not insecure. If you are too decentralized, scalable or secure, your system will be dramatically slow. But if your system is centralized, unscalable or insecure, your system has a point of failure.

The more I think about it, the more confident I'm getting with the idea that true helpfulness is certainly one, if not the ultimate marketing strategy. Before explaining why I think so, let's clarify what I mean with true helpfulness. A lot of companies are using content as their main marketing strategy. And that's certainly not a problem, but the problem is the way they do it. You aren't being helpful to your customers by creating a "Top 10 of...", or the usual interview with a happy client. T...

Since the launch of Metronome, back in early 2018, I have been following them closely. It's an interesting project. Essentially, MET allows you to move the same value from one chain to another. You can for example send MET from Ethereum to Ethereum Classic. You may think that's not revolutionary, because you could use atomic swaps with a copy of the same token on the other chain to do the exact same thing, but here is the catch: it's the same token. So, when sending MET from one chain to ano...
