The Switzerland of Web3 – Ankr ‘s “Chain Neutral” Approach Lights a Path Toward Multi-Chain Future

Anyone who has spent a significant amount of time in crypto knows that there are a number of persistent rivalries between different blockchains. Taking on a factional form, these rivalries often exist both at the project/developer level and within the wider communities themselves. Much of this can be chalked up to friendly competition, genuine technical …

Proton Powers Up With Top-Tier Domain and New Whitepaper

Proton (XPR) has officially outgrown the ProtonChain.com domain name and has upgraded to Proton.org. For those of us who are veterans of the domain industry, this is fantastic news and an obvious indication of good things to come. I’ve said this a million times, but most projects in crypto use low quality domain names or …

Taking a Gander at Ankr Scan, Ankr’s Multi-Chain Block Explorer

As someone who spends an inordinate amount of time researching coins and attempting to ascertain useful (and occasionally useless) information by eyeballing transaction info, I can appreciate any tool which makes this task more efficient. It can be tedious to have to hop around from blockchain explorer to blockchain explorer to lookup transactions on individual …

Of Cosmic Proportions – All Eyes On Jupiter as it Makes its Move

Precarious market conditions in the crypto space have apparently not deterred Jupiter from pursuing its gargantuan ambitions, as the project continues pushing forward. For instance, after working patiently all these years, they appear to have finally secured the exchange listing equivalent of the golden fleece. That’s right, Jupiter is set to be listed on Coinbase. …

In a Builder’s Market, Ankr Forges Ahead With Web3 Construction

It may be easier said than done sometimes, but we must avoid allowing the tumultuousness of the markets to distract us from noticing which projects are actively building things. One such project is Ankr (ANKR), which describes itself as “the fastest-growing infrastructure provider in the Web3 space.” If you want to dive into the technical …

Better Redd Than Dead! – How Reddcoin Could Experience a Revival

With the exponential proliferation of rug pulls, overhyped garbage projects and slimy developers in crypto the last couple of years, I’ve often wondered whether there would be renewed interest in so-called “boring” legacy coins like Digibyte, Litecoin, and Reddcoin. After getting bamboozled enough times, some people might wish to gravitate back toward projects which haveā€”at …

Blockchain-Powered E-Commerce Platform “Storex” Poised to Launch on Proton

Try saying that five times fast! I confess I hadn’t heard of Storex until they recently conducted an airdrop of their token (STRX) to Proton holders. At the time, it was only tradeable on an exchange called Alcor (no relation to the cryonics facility that freezes human corpses). Then just yesterday Storex scored its highly …

Freshening Up the NFT Space With Proton Mint

One of the more promising layer 1 blockchains to rapidly emerge from obscurity has been Proton (XPR). Describing itself as “the payment blockchain,” Proton seems to place a heavy emphasis on speed, efficiency, and the ability to support high transaction volumes. Unlike with many other projects, Proton’s actual products are consistent with their branding and …

Ravencoin’s NFT Renaissance

When I decided to get back into crypto about two years ago, Ravencoin was one of the first coins I looked at, and I even held some for a period of time before moving on to whatever else I got myself hyped up on. The Ravencoin community at that time seemed robust, yet fairly small …
