For those who have been following, I usually only review platform and layer 1 interoperability projects. However, I try to keep up with the latest trends so why not review MATIC, Ethereum’s internet of blockchains. Polygon, previously known as Matic, is one of the strongest performing alt coins as of recent. I enjoy learning about blockchain innovations, or tech in general, and I’m sure this project will get you excited. These reviews help me understand the basics to each project, so here are my findings.

What is Polygon

Polygon is a protocol and a framework for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible…


I enjoying reading about new developments to find projects that will continue to push the blockchain space forward. After researching many platform coins, I came across a very interesting project called Terra ($LUNA). What caught my attention about this project was the tokenomics which led me to further look into the ecosystem. In this article I will share the overview as to why I find LUNA to be one of the most interesting projects in today’s market.

What is Luna

LUNA is a decentralized financial infrstructure platform with the ability to run multiple chains, connected by the Cosmos IBC. The…


Watching the development of Icon has been very exciting and I believe the work really begins once we move into this new software architecture. As we soon approach the launch of 2.0, I want to highlight some of the key bridges I would like to see this year through the Blockchain Transmission Protocol (BTP).

For the record, Icon is an interoperability protocol so when I refer to bridges, this is the integration between Icon and an external blockchain. …


With the first DEFI release for the Icon network, I want to analyze the Balanced platform against other highly used DEFI projects. Balanced has crossed the 6 day mark and the numbers are on an amazing trajectory. The platform is easy to use and allows for the Icon community to utilize their position in a way that has never been seen. Overall, as an Icon holder, I’m very excited to have access to DEFI opportunities such as collateralizing and LPs.

In this article, I will give the high level on Balanced and compare against what I consider to be some…


The DEFI product we’ve all been waiting for is finally here!!

Given the recent release, I’ve decided to write this brief summary of how I’ve been using the Balanced platform. Of course, with big rewards comes risk so please be careful in your investment strategy and have a clear understanding in what you’re doing before deploying your bag.

This week I had a chance to play around on the platform and I have to say, this is amazing. The UI makes it easy for newcomers to utilize DEFI and the transaction fees are very minimal compared to other chains like…


With Ethereum gas prices at an all time high in 2021, we have seen more news around interoperability technology for cross-chain communication. Since 2017, I’ve been a strong believer this is a “must have” feature to further expand the growth of the blockchain ecosystem as a whole.

As noted in previous articles, I see interoperability as the internet to blockchains. As a visual, each blockchain ecosystem is a PC/computer that can only work within itself unless a cross chain feature is added, the internet. As we all know, the power if the internet exponentially increased the capabilities of the computer…


As many of you know, I am a big fan of Icon. I’ve spent countless hours reading about different chains and projects to fully understand the power of ICX and I would like to share my findings in this article. My investment thesis is fairly simple — who, what, when, why. I will cover these 4 topics in this article. This write up will be brief and pull statements found across the web to save you the time but as always, please do your own research.

Who is Icon

With new money entering the crypto space this year, I figured it would be helpful to put together a brief guide to help new money find the correct project(s) to invest in. Yes, there are many different ways to valuate a project so please be sure to DYOR and find what works best for you.

I generally classify investors into two groups:

  1. Traders — Short term positions — People who focus on momentum/hype, chart reading, and near term catalysts. In my opinion, this group spends more time keeping up to date with the space to maximize gains based on short…


Hello ICONIST,

First, thank you to everyone who took the time to read my first article — “Why $ICX (Icon) Is A Top 10 Project”.
