从3月2018年到3月2019年，那些的12个月中无疑来说是数字代币的严冬时期 （Crypto Winter)。曾经高涨的数字资产市场普遍过度兴奋给了我们对自从2018年夏末以来弥漫整个比特币和山寨币社区的疲倦感的一种古怪的委婉说法。
March 2018 to March 2019 were 12 months that were filled with dynamic times that have culminated in what we now lovingly refer to as the #CryptoWinter. The general over-elation of the once high-flying digital asset markets has given us this quaint euphemism for the general blasé feeling that has overwhelmed the entire bitcoin and altcoin community since the late summer of 2018.
While others bemoaned the lack of a bull run during that year, we feel it led us back to the fundamentals of building innovative and useful technologies, further benefiting the industry long term. When we first became interested in blockchain and the potential power of tokenized economic incentives back in 2016, I never thought about the potential for the value of any particular coin to soar. We were more intrigued by blockchain’s potential for changing the world.
Unfortunately, in the midst of all the excitement that was the blockchain mania of late 2017 and early 2018, many companies seemed to sideline the importance of developing an incumbent ecosystem, something more than just marketing hype and questionable partnership announcements. With all of the excitement around the tantalizing prospective future of institutional money rushing into our little corner of the fintech universe, very few projects stopped to take a breath and actually envision what this brave new world might look like.
As DarcMatter began to dedicate itself to the build out of robust blockchain-based solutions for the financial services industry, it became increasingly clear that we needed to create a blockchain division solely dedicated to furthering this industry-specific blockchain ecosystem and the underlying technology upon which it will be built.
So, we created Konstellation, a division that is laser-focused on creating end-to-end solutions for the emerging digital asset market. Honestly, we really think that market is going to be absolutely huge and restricting our technology to just our existing fund marketplace is not the best way to serve DARC tokenholders nor the blockchain fintech community at large.
DarcMatter will, of course, continue to work with Konstellation and its technology to further the integration of NEM-based and other interoperability-focused blockchain systems for our global community of asset managers and investors. DarcMatter will work hand in hand with Konstellation to leverage blockchain technology to enhance efficiency, transparency, and increased access to unique investment opportunities.
