Those who work in the development of token projects need to model the behavior of people. Primarily, they study the potential reaction to incentives. Developers try to answer the question of what would a person do if he or she expects such and such a reward?

Our own experience and…


Starting from Friday, January 31, 2020, Mycelium Wallet for Android supports ETH. The app is one of the oldest on the market and its team has always been known for being skeptical, if not maximalist, about the role the Ethereum protocol and ecosystem have played in the development of decentralized finance and management.

Alexander Kuzmin, Mycelium CEO:

Although Ethereum remains a tool to proliferate financially risky innovation, the narrative of “flippening” is gone. On one hand, ETH can’t do any more harm to BTC. On the other hand, smart contracts and dApps are here to stay and evolve but most networks are under governments’ control, therefore — “the enemy of my enemy becomes a friend.”


A rise in price wouldn’t surprise anyone since it was just a doubling. The code development in 2019 can hardly be called special either — thank God! — Bitcoin doesn’t need any revolutionary upgrades. …


As of block 609,000, we are 90% of the way through to the next halving, estimated for May 14, 2020. The halving is much more than a technical event, it is also a narrative.

Physical interaction with a partner plays an essential role in our life experience and is the basis of many daily activities. When two physically coupled humans have different and partly conflicting goals, they face the challenge of negotiating some type of collaboration.

This requires that both participants understand their partner’s…

I shall be using an easy-to-understand startup case to elaborate on the following theses:

  1. Our world has long been filled with all the necessary goods. To sell, you need to further fragment positioning and come up with a new niche. Similarly, there are more than enough startups on this planet…


Illustration with Geometric Analogy

With a new wave of interest in blockchain on its way, I once again urge founders and investors to pay special attention to one promising niche — inter-industry, supranational integration of supply chains.

Large old consulting companies, such as IBM, Microsoft or EY, as well as new independent projects are already working in this area. It’s noteworthy that both classes of players integrate their solutions into public platforms. For example, Microsoft announced the launch of an identification system based on the Bitcoin blockchain, with Civic being one of its partners; Amazon promises to soon extend its service from IBM’s platforms to Ethereum.

This means smaller projects can become part of truly global frameworks, even if they go the highly questionable ICO path.

The modern generation gave up many well-tested rudimentary staples of social interaction. Letter-writing has gone by the wayside. We entrust the expression of care and intention to short, informal messages sent on the go or from lying in bed. In business, we welcome potential new partners with the help of…


Many businesses arsenal themselves with discounts, reputation and loyalty points, and employee bonuses, which are, in its essence, the introduction of corporate money. It’s time to reformat these tools and use the full power of cryptocurrencies.

At a minimum, this will reduce the chance of employee fraud.
