As we said a few days ago in our post covering the top blockchain events in 2020, this is an exciting time for the distributed ledger technology because of many things. For one, we are living in an era where the blockchain and cryptocurrency news are showing new advances every day. These go not just in terms of price increases for cryptocurrencies or new blockchain projects – they are also measured in awareness about both technologies. Today, we are listing the most impactful blockchain companies which helped share a lot of awareness in 2019 and are continuing to do the same in 2020.
1.Gemini – Crypto Custody Solutions
Gemini is one of the most popular exchanges out there – but also a company which managed to expand its arsenal of financial tools. Gemini Custody was also launched in 2019 as a solution that allows institutional investors to safely hold crypto assets offline and instantly trade them.
In its core, Gemini is also one of the most impactful blockchain companies for managing to find a solution that fully meets the needs of institutional users, especially considering their complex regulatory and security requirements.
2.Maker DAI – Decentralized Tech At Its Finest
Maker (DAI) is not only a stablecoin featured often in our coming altcoin news – it is also a project which is very impressive. The DAI stablecoin has grown in transaction volume since 2018 from six figures to around $10 million at its lowest point in 2019.
Considering that Maker is dialing down its hold on nearly 50% of all the ETH locked into decentralized finance, experts believe that Maker was “one of the first projects that you could actually lock up Ethereum to print DAI.”
3.Tron & WINk
The latest Tron news show that TRX is an altcoin to watch out for. However, we can also see that Tron is one of the most impactful blockchain companies in 2019 and 2020 especially for creating WINk – a popular gaming blockchain with a unique two-token system: Tron’s TRC20 and Binance’s BEP2 protocols.
4.Ethereum And Its ERC20 Standard
Last in our list of most impactful blockchain companies for the past year is Ethereum with its ERC20 standard which introduced the first decentralized computer. This year saw the developer community growing more than any other, all helping Ethereum get a fair share against its competitors.
Last year, the ETH network also started its upgrade to Ethereum 2.0 which is the long-awaited scalability upgrade and conversion to a proof-of-stake (from a proof-of-work) governance model.
