Our Research

The State of Stablecoins

A stable digital currency has the largest total address market (TAM) of any cryptocurrency—$90 trillion—according to Myles Snider, an advisor to the cryptocurrency venture capital firm Multicoin Capital. This estimate assumes the global adoption of stablecoins as an alternative currency replacing fiat altogether. This is certainly a far-fetched possibility. However, it does convey the opportunity for stablecoins to impact billions of people in the way they transact.

Top 5 Predictions for 2030

In 2017 cryptocurrencies took the world by a storm. The price of Bitcoin shot up to nearly $20,000. The average ICO returned well over 10x. ICO funding surpassed traditional VC funding. Blockchain technology emerged as the new buzzword of choice by executives. Is this all just hype?

Web 3.0 The New Era of Data

With the advents in blockchain technology, the Web 2.0 is starting to transition towards a more open, transparent, and self-sovereign model - Web 3.0. Before we explore what this means, we will first identify what defined the previous versions of the Web and what brought the ongoing changes.
