  • Jeff Garzik on Litecoin Founder and CEO of Bloq

    Litecoin is a cheaper, faster, marginally less-secure version of BTC. Plenty of advantages there.

  • Jeff Garzik on Tron Founder and CEO of Bloq

    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.

  • Jeff Garzik on Binance Coin Founder and CEO of Bloq

    Continuing to be impressed by Binance.

  • Jeff Garzik on Ethereum Founder and CEO of Bloq

    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.
