The Future Of The Internet & Blockchain

The Internet era has been going through a variety of stages, each with its struggles and breakthroughs. A lot of the innovations that we have today are looked upon with a questionable gaze. And blockchain is one of them. Many disruptive projects are emerging from blockchain technology, yet the world is not ready to accept that kind of innovation.

When people hear about the blockchain, they instantly think about cryptocurrency, mostly Bitcoin, and all of the bad press associated with it. For example, volatility of the markets hacks on the network or scams, yet the blockchain is more than the negative labels it gets from the public eye.

One of the biggest opportunities of today’s society is the blockchain, and not many people realize the opportunity that the blockchain holds at the time of writing the capitalization of the cryptocurrency blockchain market is around 1 Trillion US dollars.

When the blockchain just started, of course, it was Bitcoin as a store of value. And then we went to theory with smart contracts. And then all sorts of different tech started rising for data management, ownership and security protocols, transmission, etc.

But why was there a need for a blockchain in the first place? There were several reasons. But one of the main ones is simply to allow people to control their own money.

The financial system has been and is failing as by the date, large corporations have their gatekeepers that control the cash flow and allow or disallow a particular transaction. And the government has their take on it because it collaborates with these large corporations, but only the owner of the asset or the fund should decide what happens with their own money. After all, they’re the ones who earned it.

The traditional financial system naturally gave way to a better alternative, which of course, was the blockchain, the initial revolutionary idea of the blockchain was to have complete ownership privacy and security over once acid that was the beginning. And then as I mentioned before, it gave way naturally to smart contracts with Ethereum. And that opened a lot of doors for other cryptocurrencies and blockchain projects to shine, each having its vector in the industry.

Today’s internet is content-driven, but the infrastructure is not there. Most of the companies that are running on that kind of infrastructure are not able to provide a safe environment for their clients. You can just Google for daily hacks on the network, and you will find plenty of them. The protocols that are being used in data transmission in today’s infrastructure are constantly a target for attacks.

This wasn’t such a big problem back in the day when the internet was created, because mainly it was used for resource sharing. Now things have changed because the Internet has grown.

And oddly enough, the blockchain today is being treated somewhat in the same way as the Internet has made the switch from resource sharing to content delivery in the late 90s. Of course, the need for security, scalability and speed has started to arise. That wasn’t such a big problem back in the day with resource sharing. But then, of course, when payment methods were introduced and more services started to rise on the network, we started seeing all kinds of problems.

Blockchain in this whole picture seems like the next logical step because it addresses a lot of the problems associated with the modern internet that uses an infrastructure that dates back to the 1970s. Don’t get me wrong the blockchain is not a perfect utopian solution for all the problems of the current internet. But it’s a step forward when it comes to security and data ownership.

At the same time. If we combine blockchain with great tech inventions of the modern era, we might be able to address more problems of the current internet, whether that’s combining with AI, 5g, MDN, maybe even VR, who knows we might be able to address the problems with speed scalability, violation of the net neutrality principle, having faster processing times for transactions and any other problems that may arise.

What is the goal of this portfolio?

The “Three Token Pillars” portfolio is democratically proportioned between the Three Pillars of the Token Economy & Interchain:

CryptoCurreny – Security Tokens (STO) – Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

With this portfolio, we will identify and take advantage of the opportunities within the Three
Pillars of ReadySetCrypto. We aim to Capitalise on the collective knowledge and experience of the RSC
community & build model portfolios containing the premier companies and projects
in the industry and manage risk allocation suitable for as many people as
possible.

The Second Phase of the RSC Community Portfolio V3 was to give us a general idea of the weightings people desire in each of the three pillars and also member’s risk tolerance. The Third Phase of the RSC Community Portfolio V3 has us closing in on a finalized portfolio allocation before we consolidated onto the highest quality projects.

The ReadySetCrypto "Top Ten Crypto" Community Portfolio (V4)

What is the goal of this portfolio? 

The “Top Ten Crypto” portfolio is a democratically proportioned portfolio balanced based on votes from members of the RSC community as to what they believe are the top 10 projects by potential.
 
This portfolio should be much more useful given the ever-changing market dynamics. In short, you rank the projects you believe deserve a spot in the top 10. It should represent a portfolio and rank that you believe will stand the test of time. Once we have a good cross-section, we can study and make an assessment as to where we see value and perhaps where some diamonds in the rough opportunities exist. In a perfect world, we will end up with a Pareto-style distribution that describes the largest value capture in the market.
 
To give an update on the position, each one listed in low to high relative risk:
 
SoV/money == BTC, DCR
Platforms == ETH, XTZ
Private Money == XMR / ZEC / ZEN
DeFi == MKR / SNX and stablecoins
 
It is the most realistic way for us to distill the entirety of what we have learned (and that includes the RSC community opinion). We have an array of articles that have gradually picked off one by one different projects, some of which end up being many thousands of words to come to this conclusion. It is not capitulation because we all remain in the market. It is simply a consolidation of quality. We seek the cream of the crop as the milk turns sour on aggregate.
