2 018 was a challenging year for initial coin offerings (ICOs) and our local blockchain ecosystem. As more and more crypto whales became selective with their investments and began pulling funding, the viability of an increasing number of tokens was scrutinised.
We are, however, at a critical inflection point. Throughout time, every period of technological progress and successful innovation could not be sustained without a preliminary stage of overcoming initial setbacks, fears and criticism levelled at the latest spate of emerging technologies that defined a particular era. Blockchain is no different. …

How did we get to where we are now? We’re going to take you through a brief evolution of currencies.
In the past, people used commodities such as shells and jewellery as currency. Due to their rarity, they were used as a store of value.
