With the arrival of the fourth quarter, 2018 is coming to an end. Some people will say that the bear market, the suppression of regulators, and the sharp decline in the size of the industry will make this year an unforgettable year. But the reality is that during the bear market, a lot of important work has been done. Holders and traders may lament the price of ETH and XLM. But in the coming year, many blockchain companies are working hard to launch their own platforms.
We can expect some dazzling developments in the coming months. But let’s take a look at the top five blockchain companies worthy of attention in 2019.
Under the leadership of the glamorous CEO Trevor Koverko, Polymath has recently caused quite a stir in the circle. Koverko is known for his wise investment choices (he has been a fan of Ethereum and holds a large stake in ShapeShift and EOS), and he has worked on Wall Street and Silicon Valley. The advisory committee also includes names such as Overstock’s ParticByrne, Ethereum co-founder Anthony Di Iorio, and ShapeShift’s Erik Vorhees.
What is special about Polymath? In the ever-changing regulatory landscape, the United States experienced a major shift to safe tokens in 2018. Polymath is creating the ST-20, with the goal of becoming the “makeup of secure tokens.” By providing the next standard for secure tokens, the platform will provide companies with the technology layers they need to easily create their own secure tokens. At the same time, it has helped transfer trillions of dollars of securities to the blockchain.
2. Diditex Futures
Diditex Futures hopes to ignite the futures trading industry in 2019. With the release date of the transaction completed later this year, the company will launch the platform to its first batch of 5,000 waiting users. Then, it dropped 1000 DGTX (its local tokens) to them and experimented before the final launch. This provides a perfect test environment for its developers, while also enabling sharp futures traders to get started faster.
There are several features that make this crypto exchange unique. Mainly it provides a free commission trading model and a decentralized account. Former mine trader CEO Adam Todd often sees that due to high commissions, the days of profit will turn into losses. Now, he is looking for a way to create a highly liquid exchange, which should be the result of futures traders’ expectations.
Relying on its own blockchain, OST is accumulating more and more Dapps based on its technology. From token design and betting to airdropping and analysis, OST has a lot of things to offer companies the opportunity to local tokens. OST partners have included PassKit, LytePay, LGBT tokens and Unspash.
Their evolving developer community has given OST a name in the encryption space, but their latest news is hotly debated by the media. At ETHBerlin’s Ethereum hackathon, OST revealed that it has found a solution to Ethereum’s scalability problem: OpenST Mosec, a consensus protocol that will run a metablock chain on Ethereum, per second. Allow thousands of transactions.
Switzerland’s SMART VALOR is launching a decentralized global marketplace for alternative investments in tokens, including digital assets such as cryptocurrencies and tokenizedassets such as private equity and real estate. The company recently announced that it has obtained regulatory approval to act as a financial intermediary in Switzerland. This is important because most cryptocurrency exchanges currently do not follow AML/KYC practices and do not provide any security for investors.
The VALOR platform will be launched in the fourth quarter of this year and SMART VALOR has a history of working with regulators. CEO Olga Feldmeier is known by the media as the “Bitcoin Queen” of the Swiss Encrypted Valley. She played an important role in leading Xapo’s legislative action, and Xapo is one of the world’s largest baidian custodians. Focusing on the democratization of wealth, the company’s goal is to open up investments in previously unrestricted assets to a broader investor community, triggering a “global investment revolution”.
Lucdium Health is bringing blockchain into clinical trials. According to industry reports, more than 70% of clinical trial participants have withdrawn from the trial. This allows the test conductor, CRO, to select a larger sample size to meet the test requirements. LucdiumHealth uses intelligent AI and ML to match the most appropriate trial participants to clinical trials. To ensure compliance with the test protocol, Lucdium Health will use the unique features of the Stellar blockchain and its trustline. The team is made up of experienced clinicians who are well versed in the industry and have partnered with the blockchain development company Turing Lab to establish the project.
In the new year, the new look is
2019. With the great emphasis on supervision, compliance and innovation, it is expected to achieve a lot of new developments in the blockchain world. As the company began to deliver on its promises and provide investors with a platform to look forward to, new solutions to improve existing infrastructure were discovered, and 2019 could be a year of cross-cutting and large-scale adoption.
