A blockchain research center has expressed skepticism about the appearance of a blockckhain platform encompassing the whole world. The Coinone Research Center said Tuesday that it had found “boundaries” by looking at the diffusion extent of 5 kinds of payment tokens and 5 kinds of platform-type tokens from the perspective of transaction amounts by region.
The research center said this phenomenon is true in the existing internet industry. When it comes to internet portals, Google is dominant in the Lain cultural area and Yandex is overwhelming in Russia and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries; Naver, Baidu and Yahoo Japan are peerless in Korea, China and Japan, respectively.
Although it’s natural that there are different blockchain platforms by region, the research center said, the blockchain ecosystem must be equipped with a function to connect different platforms like internet’s TCP/IP. The research center also said the IBC (Inter-Blockchain Communication) protocol the Cosmos project is trying to introduce is grabbing attention. The project’s community, which carried out an initial coin offering (ICO) in April 2017, is preparing to launch its mainnet in mid-March after a two-year development period. /email@example.com
