I agree completely, so much scammy shit out there these days. Coinmarketcap even listing tether now as tho it were a crypto and adding it into market totals. I have nothing against tether, it serves a function, but its not a crypto by any stretch of the imagination. I think the new plan to try and kill decentralization is by rebranding stablecoins as cryptocurrencies. Then we can all go on happily trading markers referring to USD run on a centralized database and pretend we’re doing something.
I’ve thought for years the best way to assert the value of FTC would be to go after atomic swaps in a big way. The coins that can trade decentralized with other coins are going to maintain value best. Of course im not a coder so can’t help with that at all, but i have made donations to FTCs devs in the past and plan to do so again. Probably the best way to make things happen is support the smart people behind the coin and keep them interested.
Emercoin blockchain is an emerging leader in secure, distributed blockchain business services. With many companies using Emercoin technology, both the Emercoin team and the broader developer community has maintained and developed services for the public Emercoin Blockchain, which uses the Emercoin cryptocurrency (EMC) to perform a variety of services.
Offering some of the most innovative, real-world solutions, the Emercoin Blockchain is a premier public blockchain for secure, decentralized business operations.
Benefits of emercoin:
At just above 200 megabytes, Emercoin’s blockchain is ~1000 times smaller than that of major competitors. It’s much easier to maintain and faster to use.
Emercoin’s protocol has grown by 102 times in 3 years — more than any other major projects.
Finally, you can get Emercoin as a “side-product” of Bitcoin mining — meaning that you get all of the above benefits virtually for free.
Emercoin can be used to purchase a whole range of business-focused distributed services for pennies.
Emercoin’s Proof-of-Stake mechanism guarantees a return of 6% per annum. Purchasing a thousand EMC will likely get you enough “gas” to run the above distributed services using the “interest” alone.
