TRON is a fascinating economic and ethical study. Can a photocopy pump be backfilled with real substance?
It's like paper mache art. Inflate a paper-thin balloon, then surround it with hardened substance.Full review
The more "wrapped" tokens [from other cryptocurrencies] on ETH, the more ETH becomes a blockchain for financial exchange. Wrapped BTC was actually mentioned in one of [Ethereum founder] Vitalik Buterin's earliest papers, and is now a reality.
Being able to create smart contracts that can work with multiple currencies is very powerful from a programmability standpoint. Smart contracts could be written to ingest and dispense BTC, ETH, ETC, USD and more depending on conditions. Asset baskets could be automated on chain.Full review
