Tezos’ recent release from its beta stage in late September of 2018 makes it one of the more recent cryptocurrencies, and while it had a very rocky start since its ICO in 2017, plagued by legal issues and changes within its legislative body, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming one of the most actively traded cryptocurrencies. What sets Tezos apart from its competition is its focus on smart contracts and a more democratic form of governance which aims to establish a true digital commonwealth!
It is hard to dispute the importance of research and academic rigour. For several projects, including Cardano, proper scholastic methodology has helped to pave the way for success. It is refreshing to see a modern cryptocurrency, utilising the latest in blockchain technology alongside peer-reviewed academic research to create a smart-contract platform built to last!
Expecting NEO to be “the one” to be bring peace to our current economic crises might be a tad naive, but that doesn’t mean that NEO has nothing to offer to the world of cryptocurrencies. Nothing could be further from the truth! NEO, often called China’s Ethereum, boasts considerable improvements over its Western counterpart, from technological advances to developments with regards to Smart Contract systems, all of which help earmark NEO as an up-and-coming cryptocurrency.
Ethereum aim is to make everyday life that bit more efficient and cost effective, by automating daily processes and creating a system without the middlemen. This could be used in not just the financial system, but also in the legal system, computer systems or more.
