Killer Apps are important

I just read an article titled ‘We already know blockchain‚Äôs killer apps ‘ (link) and I couldn’t agree more. I have some differences of opinion on what existing blockchains exist to accomplish each of the listed apps (below). However, the important thing is we DO need killer apps and people to see exsiting and future options as such.

Killer app #1: Dark web and black market payments

  • Monero (XMR)
  • Zcash (ZEC)

Killer App #2: Digital Gold

  • BitUSD/BitXXX (the full set of bit assets)
  • NuBits
  • Other tokens on top of BTS/NXT/XEM pegged against some IRL ‘thing’

Killer App #3: Payments (macro and micro)

  • Nem (XEM)
  • BitShares (BTS)
  • Lots of other ‘currency first’ tokens

Killer App #4: Tokenization

  • Pick one

(function(f, a, t, h, o, m){ a[h]=a[h]||function(){ (a[h].q=a[h].q||[]).push(arguments) }; o=f.createElement('script'), m=f.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; o.async=1; o.src=t;'fathom-script'; m.parentNode.insertBefore(o,m) })(document, window, '//', 'fathom'); fathom('set', 'siteId', 'PUEYX'); fathom('trackPageview');
