THE TERNION MISSION
BRIDGING THE GAP TO A DECENTRALIZED FUTURE
From the Ancient Roman denarius to the Italian florin and to the US dollar, the history of
international currencies stretches back thousands of years, showing humanity’s intrinsic
desire for the dependability and freedom offered by currency that isn’t restrained by
Today, the rising tide of decentralized finances, coupled with the artificial nature of fiat
currencies, points ever more towards cryptocurrency becoming the go-to monetary system
in an increasingly digital, globalized world.
Yet in the rush for innovation, cryptocurrency creators are trying and failing to jump over an
insurmountable chasm straight into a fully decentralized future, ignoring lessons from the
past, which illustrate how all innovation, whether technological, financial, or otherwise, has
its time and place, being achieved through the gradual evolution of the old into the new.
With Ternion, our goal is to build a reliable bridge to c...
Starting at just below $18 billion and ending the year at around the $600 billion mark,
the total cryptocurrency market capitalization hike for 2017 was record-shattering when
compared to preceding years of relaxed, gradual growth.
While Bitcoin was certainly responsible for a large portion of that growth, rising from just
above $15 billion to over $235 billion over the course of the year, other cryptocurrencies
skyrocketed just the same, starting 2017 at just over $2 billion and ending it by passing the
$375 billion mark. As a result, Bitcoin no longer reigns unopposed over the cryptofinance
market, with hundreds of new tokens released in 2017, and by all accounts, hundreds more
to come in 2018.
Major Cryptocurrency Growth Trends
The tokens leading the charge serve both as powerful driving forces for the market’s current
upward trend and as indicators of the varied directions available to cryptocurrencies as
money, assets, servic...
This surge resulted from a wide range of positive events over the year, but three in particular
really stood out among the rest as critical milestones.
Q2 2017 saw Japan pass their Virtual Currency Act, which legalized
cryptocurrencies as legitimate payment methods, which fell a few steps
short of accepting them as legal tender but still proved to be a big boost
to market confidence.
The following Bitcoin price hike occurred in Q3 with the appearance of
Bitcoin Cash, showcasing the market’s immense desire for the defeat of
Bitcoin’s scaling issues.
Finally, as the year drew to a close, the market exploded with the release
of Bitcoin futures by the CME and CBOE exchanges, leading to record-
The very end of the year did see a considerable drop in capitalization for the leading
cryptocurrency, yet doomsayers in the media failed to dampen the overall market mood,
and Bitcoin price leveled out as it always does, showing just how resilient the cryptocurrency
As such, the token’s upward mobility, regardless of actual price, shows that the blockchain
realm is expanding not only financially but technologically as well, further adding to market
confidence as a whole due to the symbiosis inherent to cryptocurrencies.
At the same time, Ethereum developers’ ongoing efforts to move the digital token from
the Proof of Work system (resource-intensive, competitive mining) to the Proof of Stake
system (cost-efficient, deterministic mining), thus solving the scaling issues that trouble all
cryptocurrencies, remains a powerful argument in favor of Ethereum’s utility token model
over Bitcoin and its reliance on outside solutions.
Opening 2017 with a market cap of $237 million and greeting 2018 at over $100 billion, Ripple
has shown itself to be a strong contender with over 47,000% growth over the most optimistic
year for cryptocurrencies yet.
Ripple Market Cap 2017
Litecoin’s growth in price from just $4 to past the $350 mark in 2017 inspired hope for altcoins,
which tend to receive the lion’s share of criticism among those doubtful of cryptocurrencies.
Litecoin Market Cap 2017
Serving to fill the gap of a day-to-day transaction coin left open by Bitcoin’s skyrocketing
transaction fees and uncomfortable processing times, Litecoin benefits from technical
upsides that keep its momentum strong despite market volatility.
While capitalization is the talk of the town, the cryptocurrency market is expanding and
changing in more ways than one.
Individual traders still make up the majority of market players, with trading volumes
expanding alongside the market’s overall capitalization growth. The numbers don’t lie,
though they aren’t exact either. According to the most re...
At the same time, 2017 saw the number of cryptocurrency hedge funds reach 100 for the first
time, with more than 75% of them being launched that very year, and their total combined
assets growing to $2.2 billion. While many of the funds in question are still young and relatively
small, their appearance nonetheless contributes directly to the general expansion of the
Technological innovation isn’t far behind either. With algorithmic trading becoming more
popular among foreign exchange traders due to demand for boosted trading efficiency, it’s no
wonder that the same trend has made its way into the cryptocurrency market too, especially
given the native technological component of blockchain-based finances in general.
And last but not least, a noticeable trend on the outskirts of the cryptocurrency boom
continued over the course of 2017: miners buying up graphics cards by the truckload. Much
to the annoyance of PC gamers around the world, cryptocurrency miners continue to
