You know the drill. I find the smartest, edgiest, and hopefully sexiest people I know who have the characteristics of entrepreneurship to contribute advice to The Chancebending Network. Today we’re talking Blockchain with Jared Polites from BlockTeam.
Jared talks about Blockchain and how it’s trending in Cryptocurrency
“The blockchain industry is continuing to change and evolve at record speed. While more legitimacy is coming to the industry daily, there are still challenges. Just yesterday (May 7th), Binance as hacked, showing people that even the giants are prone to vulnerability. I believe we have seen the bottom of the cryptocurrency market and that general education and trust are improving. The big question marks are still around regulation and finding the ideal fundraising mechanism for blockchain projects. STO (Security Token Offerings) are still lacking critical infrastructure, while Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs) have brought a spark back to the ICO days, albeit with a more critical eye. Overall, things are progressing!”
