In #Block2 “Investment Portals for Cryptocurrency in South Africa | The Rand and Digitalization” we discussed the current state of the Rand and started our approach to learn more about Digital Assets (Cryptocurrencies) and Blockchains. In this article, I want to look at some Blockchains to Invest in from a South African perspective and how our new ZAR Digital Rand will form part of the Integration.

The much-needed market of Stablecoins is developing at a rapid pace. The main benefits that Stablecoins strive to create are price stability, scalability, privacy, decentralization, and redeemability.
Binance, one of Cryptocurrencies biggest exchanges by volume announced earlier this week it is to introduce its own Stablecoins to pair with a spectrum of world currencies.

Certainly here in South Africa we saw the birth of ZAR Stablecoin and with Q3 launch around the corner will provide much-needed stability in the South African Digital Currency Market.
The importance of a South African stronghold in this Digital Transformation era is invaluable to help us enter our economy into a new world economy. The likes of Apple, Microsoft, and Blockchains like Insolar & VeChain will force us into this new era and bring along with it Digital Currency with value. By curbing volatility we take away the elements of instability and uncertainty. Stable Coins being at the forefront of this safety net. The *Digital Rand or ZAR a prime example of curbing volatility and making it easy in simple E-commerce transactions or payments for services rendered.
Why look at the ZAR Token? Stability and economic empowerment.
Two big reasons underlying our economy and two good reasons to start your research on how to enter the new Digital Economy.

When I get paid in Ethereum I don’t want to cash out my ETH to fiat Rand, now I have a choice to keep it or swap it for other Digital Currencies for their value prospects or place it into Digital Rand pegged 1:1 with the Rand and if I’m not sure I simply purchase with it. That can all be done straight from my Digital Wallet on my phone and would, therefore, serve as the improvement from our current banking APP’ S.
What to look at when you investigate Blockchains? Bitcoin is happening now, it is in a four-year timeframe with a Halving structure built into it due in 339 days. Litecoin has a similar makeup with its halving due on 5 August 2019.

Both these Blockchains has the potential for trading with a fair amount of certainty that they are now in their bull market trend on their Day Charts.
If you take these two Companies Apple and Microsoft.
They had a starting period of 20–30 years before their prices started rising. If I compare them with Insolar (INS) & VeChain (VET), two Blockchains in the Supply Chain Market, I see the same start as they build there Technology.
They dropped into the market, (unfortunately during a bubble) with INS very stable now and VeChain with more trade volume and price movement. To me, the big differences lie with the Technology on their Blockchains and the need for that Technology to integrate into current business networks and the sign up of Leading Business brands for their Supply Chain needs.
These relatively young Blockchains should halve the 20–30 year period as emerging Technologies today are far more superior. VeChain was founded in June 2015 and today stands as a leading Blockchain Application Platform driven by Enterprise Adoption.

Opportunities: For a Supply Chain Blockchain to see the potential in a research document like PWC.com preparing its Aerospace Supply Chain solution is a rendering process to match up to current workflow systems and the promises of what Blockchain can achieve
I give some more detailed information on Supply Chain in Blockchain here.
To think the pathway of these Blockchains solutions will do more, but even in a shorter timeframe than APPL & MSFT. Blockchains are inherently needed to scope businesses. Hence the adoption phase turns into a necessity phase and the price is driven by demand.
In the next few weeks, I will find more Investment offerings in the South African Digital Landscape and start comparing how they all match and shape up. This is exciting times with the financial world as it changes and starts adopting the Digital Future.

A Blockchain originally block chain, is a growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. By design, a blockchain is resistant to modification of the data.
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency on the Bitcoin Blockchain and is a form of electronic cash. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer Bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries
Decentralization is the process by which the activities of an organization, particularly those regarding planning and decision making, are distributed or delegated away from a central, authoritative location or group.
Stable Coins are Cryptocurrencies designed to minimize the volatility of the price of the stable coin, relative to some “stable” asset or basket of assets. A stable coin can be pegged to currency, or to exchange-traded commodities. Wikipedia
