IOST is general-purpose dApp platform that’s looking to break into the top echelon of first layer DLT protocols. While the project is relatively young and has launched its mainnet, less than 6 months ago, it has consistently tried to promote the idea of the Big-4, with itself alongside Ethereum, EOS, and Tron.
The project carries the hallmarks of the 2018 “Ethereum killer” wave: scalability, low-cost transaction, and developer friendliness. Unlike many of its rivals, it has been able to deliver tangible results and put out a commercially viable project. Its strong team, investor support, and a multitude of early milestones and announcements enabled IOST to quickly make its way up the CoinMarketCap rankings.
However, there is a big question surrounding the project: ‘is it more hype than substance?’. Despite the team’s attempts to speak IOST’s leadership status into existence, the project continues to lag the Big-3 in most meaningful ecosystem statistics. While the developer and user acquisition strategies remain vague, it is difficult to see an easy road for IOST into the Web 3.0 future.
It must be noted that IOST was being developed during the bear market, and looks to have done a respectable job bootstrapping for a project that came out after the infrastructure hype cycle. Thus IOST presents as an attractive dark horse candidate that needs to prove that it can find a true product-market fit.Read full report

Ergo, Convex is one of the few examples of business-to-business models in crypto.Read full report
