17:31 Yahoo.com BusinessSurpassing Ethereum was a ‘big moment for us’ admits IOST CEO

While the crypto winter has brought many blockchain projects to their knees, others have surfaced stronger and bolder than ever before. Take the self-dubbed ‘application-friendly’ blockchain network (read Ethereum competitor) IOST. The Beijing-headquartered team launched its mainnet six months ahead of schedule at the end of February – the ‘only’ project to have done so. With the lofty goal of going head to head with far larger blockchains such as Ethereum, IOTA, and EOS, CEO Jimmy Zhong spoke to Coin Rivet about how it felt surpassing Ethereum, what IOST’s plans are next, and why he believes that IOST will become the “go-to blockchain network for mainstream adoption”.

Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has scrutinised the recent launch of JPM Coin by claiming that “no other bank will use it” while speaking at the Chamber of Digital Commerce’s Blockchain Summit in Washington. The 48-year-old, whose company is behind the XRP token that is designed to be used by banks, admitted that it was “great” to see major players enter the cryptocurrency space. But his positivity didn’t last for long, as soon after he said: “That’s the only nice thing I’m going to say about this.” Garlinghouse added: “This guy from Morgan Stanley was interviewing me, I said ‘So, is Morgan Stanley going to use the JPM Coin?’ And he said ‘probably not.’ So, well is Citi going to use the JPM Coin?
