After celebrating the New Year, Antonio Velardo shares what he thinks are the most exciting blockchain projects and trends for 2022.

I think the time for other incumbents to gain popularity in the space is near and neither Bitcoin nor Ether would be able to maintain the same leadership in defining bull or bear markets.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 7, 2022 / – 2021 has been a unique and interesting year for the blockchain and crypto space. Several new projects were launched, and there were several fascinating and promising ones that would likely become more visible and gain prominence in 2022. After the New Year’s celebrations, seasoned investor Antonio Velardo shared what he believes are the most interesting blockchain projects to keep one in view in 2022.

We all know that the most well-known blockchain networks and their native cryptocurrencies are Bitcoin and Etherum. However, Antonio Velardo comments that these major cryptocurrencies, which have so far dominated market trends, are in danger of being disrupted. Especially when it comes to Bitcoin, Velardo believes that other projects are taking over in terms of scalability and new features of the network. On the other hand, the future of Ethereum’s network depends on upgrading Eth2. Antonio points out that the development of Ethereum 2.0 could give the network a clear advantage creating a colossal blockchain divide. However, if Ether 2.0 fails, it will likely be disrupted by other projects that would initiate its success, causing it to lose its market capitalization to new blockchains.

“Either way, I think the time for other incumbents to gain popularity in the space is near and neither Bitcoin nor Ether would be able to maintain the same leadership in terms of defining bull markets or bearish on their own as they have done so far. ”Reflects Antonio Velardo who believes alpha relies on recognizing these projects at the early stages of the adoption curve when they are not yet fully Valued at their actual future potential It is essential to spot these new Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchains, as they may soon start to gain market share compared to Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Velardo concluded by mentioning some blockchain projects that are worth analyzing and monitoring because of the added value they promise to bring to the space and their potential for the future. We mention a few below.

Avalanche network
According to its white paper, Avalanche is a high-performance, scalable, customizable and secure blockchain platform that targets three broad use cases. First creation of application-specific blockchains, covering authorized (private) and unauthorized (public) deployments. Second, build and launch highly scalable and decentralized applications (Dapps). And finally, create arbitrarily complex digital assets with rules, clauses and custom endorsements (smart assets).

As they define themselves on their website, Phantom is a wallet and browser extension that can be used to manage digital assets and access decentralized applications on the Solana blockchain. It works by creating and managing private keys on behalf of its users, allowing them to store funds and sign transactions. The extension injects a Solana object into the javascript context of each web application the user visits. The application can then interact with the wallet, such as requesting authorization to perform a transaction, via this injected object.

NEAR Protocol
Its white paper states that NEAR is a decentralized applications platform with the potential to change the way systems are designed, how applications are built, and how the web itself operates. It’s a complex technology with a simple goal: to enable developers and entrepreneurs to easily and sustainably create applications that secure high-value assets such as money and identity, while making them perform well enough. and usable for consumers to access. To do this, NEAR is designed from the ground up to deliver intuitive experiences to end users, scale capacity across millions of devices, and provide developers with new sustainable business models for their applications. In doing so, NEAR is creating the only community-managed cloud powerful enough to extend the reach of Open Finance and fuel the future of Open Web.

Terra is a public blockchain protocol deploying a suite of decentralized algorithmic stablecoins that underpin a thriving ecosystem that brings DeFi to the masses.

Finally, a special project that Antonio recently spotted is Chainlink, as their decentralized Oracle networks provide the data needed to maintain state-of-the-art smart contracts on any blockchain, which will have a big effect on saving space. crypto. Velardo promised to share about this later on his personal blog.
