experts opinionopen all

What I like:

  • First ever SEC approved token sale
  • Invested in by big names such as Arrington, Winklevoss, Huobi etc, incubated by Y Combinator
  • Working product with 170 dApps, SDKs and proper documentation
  • Old school token metrics selling more than 80% of tokens

What I dislike:

  • The tech is weak when compared to Ethereum and more modern blockchains
  • LISP-based programming language “Clarity” adds complexity for developers
  • The leader election process seems problematic; destroying Bitcoin in the process is a crime
  • Reliance on end-user devices performance limits potential use cases vs i.e. Elastos (super-computer on any mobile phone)

Overall, I dislike it. I salute the efforts of the team to run the first SEC approved token sale, the world will definitely remember them for this. As for their actual product, I am not so sure. Their vision of a decentralized internet is beautiful from a philosophical point of view, but the actual execution hardly compares to modern blockchains: throughput is an afterthought, it lacks a decentralized file system, it has a weird election system for validators that is potentially a single point of failure, a new programming language, no privacy features and worst of all, wants to burn Bitcoins. 

With that being sad, I am pretty sure $80mn cash can build a lot of cool stuff to prove me wrong until 2020. I will wait and not use my voucher right now.
