Bitcoin clearly is embraced by the big players. The question now is where is Horizen going from here?
The best Altcoin to model from now is Monero and how they will never be listed at Coinbase, their survival without the backing of the US regulations bec of their shielded transaction capabilities to hide taxable transactions.
Well, I think Horizen has the clear advantage of being behind the failed moves of Zcash and Komodo with prematurely having projects that are not being adopted by the Institutional investors, governments and the average Joe. I think they failed.
I’m hoping for Horizen to invite more players, miners and developers to join from other equihash algorithm community and to move forward with the White Flag from here and perhaps target to work more with third-world government projects to run their programs in a blockchain bec I think this can make those corrupt governments have better accounting, better elections and eliminate red tapes. It can make their projects run more efficiently and most importantly “it is a government that needs shielded transactions” to protect themselves from insiders or corrupt officials to steal, like, Senate pork barrels that involves a lot of money which I believe needs a blockchain to keep unedited records and a third party outside the country to run it independently and uninfluenced by any kind dictator leaders.
Just my opinion.
