As the 2010s come to an end, investors value the cryptocurrency industry at nearly $200 billion. After a year of operation, Apollo all-in-one currency has a market cap of $10 million, and the team expects wider adoption in 2020 from merchants, consumers, institutions and government partners around the world.
Born during the 2008 Financial Crisis, cryptos offer important benefits in the payments industry. Moreover, programmable monies give people an alternative to central bank-run fiats that have come under fire for questionable monetary policies (like quantitative easing) and economic mismanagement.
Here are cryptos’ benefits:
- Less need for third parties
- Frictionless transactions
- Faster cross-border payments
- Cheaper fees
- Anti-inflation features
- Alternative to debt-based fiat systems
- Flexible features
- Emergence of new ecosystems based on common interests
Apollo (APL) all-in-one currency combines nearly all features of mainstream cryptocurrencies into the fastest blockchain in the world. Boasting features and advancements such as the first implementation of database sharding, as well as adaptive forging, atomic swaps, two-second blocks, encrypted messaging, decentralized marketplace, decentralized exchange, decentralized applications, and decentralized file storage, Apollo stands as the most feature-rich cryptocurrency on the market. And one of the most advanced.
