Tolar 2018 rewind

Overview of all activities in 2018

Representing the official introduction of the Tolar HashNET project, the year of 2018 was fun, productive, exciting and most importantly, successful. From the first beginnings, through our token sale and crypto market turmoil, to the the opening of Tolar headquarters; it was everything but ordinary.

Let’s start from the beginning…

Almost four years ago, we asked ourselves one simple question — what can we do to make the most of blockchain technology with the resources we have at our disposal? The answer was facilitated by COTRUGLI Business School, which recognized the potential of blockchain technologies among the first in the region of SE Europe and provided crucial support from the start.

Thanks to the full support of our strategic partner, COTRUGLI, we were able to jumpstart several initiatives that ultimately gave birth to Tolar HashNET. One of the first initiatives was the creation of Blockchain Adria and we also developed Blockchain Academy and the worlds 1st Blockchain EMBA Program and Program for Certified Blockchain Developers, helping our clients make the most of this fascinating technology.

With the ongoing support from COTRUGLI, we started a process of incubating several ideas we found to be credible. All of them were guided professionally by the COTRUGLI Incubator, piloted and examined back and forth by prominent business experts, consultants and MBA graduates on one side, and blockchain professionals and enthusiasts on the other.

The one idea that prevailed was the one that received amazing support from the start, as it was deemed revolutionary, credible and attainable. The idea soon became an extremely serious and professional movement that skyrocketed from the start and received amazing support from both business and the blockchain community…

Tolar.

Based on HashNET — a revolutionary technology beyond blockchain, we are confident Tolar will indeed revolutionise the global business.

Here is our yearly overview that touches on most important events that made our project successful:

June 6: Tolar HashNET review by Cryptonomatron

June 9: OhHeyMatty reviews Tolar

Tolar has received an overall score 87 out of 100 from OhHeyMatty. The full review is available on his Youtube channel. His general opinion about the project is: “I think a project as a whole is pretty solid and I look forward to seeing what they have in store for the future and I’ll definitely be following this project.”

June 12: Andre Cronje reviews Tolar code

Great fundamental design, one that I look forward to seeing in the testnet, as soon as it is out. I think it can make a real difference in both finality and transaction throughput. It does lock them into Proof-of-Stake, since redesigning consensus will be a ground up design, but I don’t think that is inherently bad. All in all, good code, novel design, excited to see where this goes.” More details about his review are available in the title link.

June 14: Ian Balina reviews Tolar

We are in his top 3 with overall score 79,56%. “Tolar is my third best ICO. […]What I do like — it has a decent team, they do have prototype, they have all-star advisors which is good. It’s a big idea — the fact that they are building an infrastructural project. They are competing with other blockchains. […]Their community is decent as well. To me, this is a border line all-star project.”
