Top 30 Cryptocurrencies (Names of Executives and Developers & Country of Incorporation)

in blockchain •  last year

Seeing as how information on the personnel behind blockchain companies is a commodity that I am often trying to acquire, my team and I decided to put together a quick reference guide on those in the top 30 market capitalization.

Information about the founding members and developers of these companies can be very useful when making a decision on whether to invest or not in said company.

This list as of August 11th 2017 includes the names of the executive and development teams behind the various projects in the top 30 as well as the countries of incorporation. We have also tried to include the year of founding as well.

Inform yourself prior to buying any digital assets, this is a wild and exciting time in this domain and I believe that this nascent movement towards decentralization will have a long lasting and positive effect on the future.

Enjoy

I never imagined that there could be soooo many cryptocurrencies....thanks for the post

·

but there are sooooo many fiat currencies!!

·

True that. In fact I don't think there is a need to so many cryptocurrencies at all. Many companies can make use of existing coins and achieve what they are set out to do. But looks like everybody want to have a coin of their own. Cryptocurrency has more or less become equivalent to shares in a company these days. Everybody who is solving a problem wants to create a coin of their own.

There will be a consolidation and many people will stop mining useless coins and they will die a slow natural death. Only coins that have true utility and are differentiate from other coins will survive.

·
·

Yes, competition and a free market will cull those that do not have the vitality or legitimate underlying technology. I think that this very volatile and endlessly entertaining birth of a new sector in the economy can make people (and lose people) a lot of money. Once the foundation is laid, only the strong coins and companies will be able to continue operating.

Thanks for the great info!

Curious of where and why you chose this criteria ... My usual checklist comes from duedil.
Also why would you put Location of servers as a criteria for a decentralised global market ?

Steem on rank 20, what should we do to climb it to atleast rank number 5. What do we need to do, we need to do something.

·
  1. Promote Steemit further and let people know about it.
  2. Write good content if you feel you can add value through your posts.
  3. Upvote and comment on Good content. Resteem to increase the visibility for good posts by new authors.
  4. Power up

how's all this going to help the price of steem ? ( just trying to get an honest opinion of what someone better knowledgeable in what steem means )

This is a very useful list you have assembled. The ones with the most active developers seem to have a shot at rising upwards. If only it could be automatically updated in real time. If Steemit had a way of bookmarking your post, I would surely do so with this.
