Q2 2018: Material Development in a Bear Market

The industry of token-based projects in 2018 Q2 saw development along a variety of axes, as projects continued to raise funds, build their applications, and work within regulatory regimes. The space is more robust than an initial view of the aggregate funding or overall market trends would suggest, a conclusion supported by the prominent trends in the diversification of smart contract platform development, token sales in a variety of market sectors, and initial integrations with existing financial structures through Regulation D/SAFT registered offerings. This article takes a deeper look at 2018 Q2’s most significant developments, and considers why these themes point towards a maturing market in certain respects.

Introduction to Decred

Decred is a cryptocurrency designed for P2P payments in a similar vein as Bitcoin, albeit with a focus on governance through a hybrid PoW/PoS consensus architecture. While not a fork of Bitcoin, Decred utilizes several of its design elements and explicitly aims to improve upon Bitcoin’s perceived shortcomings. Decred emphasizes governance input for all stakeholders through an on-chain voting and public proposal system; it was the first blockchain to implement an on-chain, token holder-approved hard fork.

Tether, the most widely known stablecoin in the cryptocurrency markets, remains the subject of considerable concern and skepticism and while these questions may well remain unresolved, Tether’s lasting legacy is likely to be associated with its role as the initial stablecoin project to develop a large market presence, in effect serving as an important proof of concept in a space that has attracted considerable attention.
