23-May. Sergey: For Harmony and Fantom High interest is a preliminary rating. Just to indicate that the project is interesting( waiting for actual metrics).Harmony is something like HashGraph, Dfinity. Probably not everyone will be able to participate.
Harmony aims to create a high-throughput and scalable blockchain for micro-transactions. They have designed their own language Min and built a prototype compiler to demonstrate its ease and the security. It is available on a GitHub. Nowadays there is a lot of competitors in this sphere: Zilliqa ($830M), Rchain ($470M), Credits ($75M), Algorand, QuarkChain and more.
Harmony has a solid and experienced team in the field of security protocols, compiler verification, AI technologies, and entrepreneurship. They collaborate with advisors which worked for Google, Chrome, Android, WorldPay.
According to the roadmap Harmony aims to deploy 100k tx/sec for payments and financial institutions in 2019.
