Between China and the SEC, a lot of crypto projects are in the crosshairs. The SEC commissioner has commented that other than BTC and ETH which he may view as commodities given their decentralization, most other projects are likely securities. The effect is that a lot of these 2017-2019 ICOs could be called into question and regulators could crack down on exchanges and intermediaries facilitating these projects. If you look at the circulating supplies, a lot of projects have 50% or more of their supply reserved for Foundations, Founders w/ easy vesting, and “Third Party” Developers - AKA me, myself, and I. SEC will not like this.
Contast with Peercoin, with: 1) no pre-mine, 2) no founders’ reserve, 2) fair distribution, 3) 9 years of exchangeable supply and presumably better stakeholder decentralization and de-concentration of interest, 4) no ICO, and 5) passionate, quasi-volunteer development.
Add this to our Mount Rushmore of positives: 1) Sustainable Proof-of-Stake; 2) like for like swap w/ BTC and Lightning Network leverage; 3) 9 years of history; and 4) lack of regulatory risk. Exchanges like Coinbase or Binance could benefit from optics of a project like Peercoin on their platforms.
