Are Today’s Cryptocurrency “Experts” Ready to Become Tomorrow’s Consultants?

In response to the article "Are Today’s Cryptocurrency “Experts” Ready to Become Tomorrow’s Consultants?"

I would say the answer is, on average, an overwhelming: Absolutely Not. Charts are very handy, new "innovative" solutions look good, and money is fantastic. However when this shift inevitably occurs (again) the near totality of this space will be consumed by emerging and existing enterprises which will be competitively implementing these new solutions. Considering the potential landscape a few years from now can be very helpful in the long term.

This is why in my opinion a handful of well-built, innovative projects may have the potential to be the "lion's share" in terms of ROI given the temporal positioning and trajectory of this industry.

One of these may be Komodo. Much like Linux, Komodo is uncompromising in its adherence to decentralization. They successfully completed the first cross-chan atomic swap (think: LTC to BTC, no exchange, peer to peer, uncensorable), and have clocked >20k transactions-per-second on mainnet (very important). Here's a video I did a while back on Komodo: Komodo (KMD) : More than Meets the Eye

Ardor is another potential candidate. An improvement on the NXT client, the oldest stable proof-of-stake coin, Ardor allows for permissioned child-chains, which are highly suitable for their Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) approach. Triffic and Dominium are two existing companies currently working with Ardor to undergo a tokenization of existing assets and expand into additional digital services (such as user-perks, lower fees, and transparency) using this tech.

These are just two projects that may have the potential to surprise existing and emerging industries who at present largely view crypto and blockchain as either a novelty or are adamantly vying for its legitimacy in the eyes of the majority.

The Long Road To Defeat

Projects run the risk of finding initial success, expanding rapidly sometimes for a year or more, only to fail from mismanagement or shifting market sentiment. These companies often find themselves with a null use case – and a price that’s dropping faster than market interest in their product! The only thing worse than being average is being boring in a market as fast-paced as crypto.

Only pumpers who are willing to take the risk for a quick profit will jump on a sinking ship; they just want to load it up with TNT and blow a chunk of it sky high before the sinking hull fertilizes a new reef.

A good example of such a phenomenon is a project that had quite the buzz surrounding it back in late 2014 called Paycoin. It was the dream of many investors – a guaranteed price floor which would protect you from incurring too many losses with all coins re-bought at a guaranteed price of ten dollars! The project was holding steady for the first month and even appreciated around 60% from its ICO price.

Unsurprisingly, due to a conceptual error Paycoin crashed and burned hard as the price was manipulated by intelligent traders for a hefty profit. It was defended quite rigorously on the forums and social media as a minor setback, but fanaticism can’t save flawed fundamentals.

Nowadays where does it rest? You’ve never heard of it for a reason – this is just one of many projects that serve as a testament to flawed fundamentals. There is no doubt that there will be many similar stories in the future.
