Recently, there have been many thoughts on the development direction of blockchain and WaykiChain. I have found some certainty in the world of uncertainty. How does WaykiChain understand the development of the public chain? What is WaykiChain development direction based on these understandings? What should the community expect and pay attention to? I will share with you the answers to these questions.
How does WICC increase prices?
WICC is the basic digital currency on the WaykiChain public chain. According to its white paper, when this coin was issued in the early period, more than 70% of the chips were in circulation in the secondary market This is a relatively high proportion, comparing to most of blockchain projects. This high circulation ratio is like a double-edged sword. The disadvantage is that foundation has relatively weak control over its value in the secondary market. It is also difficult to manipulate the price to create some false market value to deceive the public. The advantage is that WICC can have a wide range of coin holders and community members. Meanwhile, more coin holders mean that when WICC is found to have price increase expectations, such expectations will be spread by the population, which can result in a large-scale network effect. In 2018, WaykiChain relied on this network effect to make a big hit in the market. At that time, the number of WICC holders was about 100,000 (WICC holders in exchange).
However, the communities merely brought by price increase expectations are not sustainable. Those people came because of profit, and they will leave because of no profit. Those who made money or lost money on WaykiChain will scold after the currency price fell. In the bear market, it is almost difficult for people to have confidence in altcoins. It is difficult for people to invest in your long-term future with real money no matter what expectations they receive. Then, how to make WICC valuable in this bear market? We can conclude by the nature of price increases, which is fewer people selling and more people buying.
Staking economy is an effective way to achieve“few people selling”. This kind of gameplay is not widely used in the traditional field as it is in the crypto circle.
Most of Staking’s gameplay is to give you a dollar profit to make you unwilling to sell your 100 dollar coins. This approach may have a positive effect in the short term, but in the long term, it is no different from the Ponzi scheme. The other method is the DeFi. In DeFi, people need to collateralize their coins and get something that can bring value to them. For example, mortgage lending. When you are unwilling to sell your coins and lack money, the CDP mortgage lending system can meet your needs. At this time, the WICC in your hand becomes a “ticket” to participate in the CDP mortgage lending system. The collateralization generated by this real demand is often solid because such users are less likely to quit fast. Because they benefit from WaykiChain and believe this kind of service will generate value, so it is not a zero-sum game. In the end, most of the people here are winners, so they cherish their chips.
Once there are more users, there should be more reasons for them to buy more continuously. The reason for most people who buy token is nothing more than to see some good news which can be predicted. Halving is predicted, so there was a decent run at the start of the year. The World Cup was also a prediction and it is a piece of good news for betting-related blockchain. This prediction of a high degree of certainty in time can prompt a frenzied influx. But other than this quadrennial prediction（Halving or World Cup） of events, what expectations do you have for the community?
The first is the technical aspect. A good technical public chain can attract more developers, and more developers can build more business models and have more imagination.
To realize the expectation of the business model, users should value the future business growth of your current track and the most direct promotion of the economic model after the growth. For example, the growth of the mortgage lending business. The total collateral of WICC gets bigger ->Less liquidated WICC ->WICC’ s unit price raises with the demand stays the same. Or growth in mortgage lending->WGRT destruction becomes more numerous->WGRT’s unit price raises. This business model creates a rigid value in a currency.
Finally, there comes the marketing ability, the user toned to trust that you are able to attract more investors at some point in the future. All financial activities generate bubbles, and how big an asset you end up with depends both on how much beer you have and how much bubble you can pour. If building business value is about brewing, marketing, and storytelling, it’s about pouring beer out of the bubble.
When it comes to liquidity, some people’s understanding of liquidity of a coin is to be listed on more exchanges, some people know a bit about some financial markets, so they say liquidity is the depth of the order book. I recently get some inspirations from David in Coinbase. Liquidity can be measured by the time you spend to convert an asset to purchase power.
Cash is with the best liquidity, as it is almost equal to purchasing power. Property is less liquid because there are very few situations where you buy something directly from the house. Usually, you will have to turn it into cash and buy something else. So there’s a long period between when you decide to sell the house and when you get the money, and the longer that period is, the less liquid it is. USDT is relatively liquid because OTC transactions, which is a mature market in the current situation, allow people to convert the USDT into fiat money in minutes.
Note that the above mentioned is to turn assets into purchasing power, rather than cash out. These two are essentially different. For example, if I want to purchase some service from a crypto media, I often use Eth, BTC, USDT, not cash. So I don’t need to sell off my digital currency to exchange cash, but directly pay it, which becomes purchasing power. From this perspective, any merchant accepting digital currency payments is enhancing the liquidity of the digital currency. Because he shortens the time it takes for assets to become purchasing power.
As I said before, the keyword of the Internet fights is traffic, and the keyword of digital currency is liquidity. Much of what WICC does is to increase liquidity. Listing on Exchange shortens the time for WICC to transform into the purchasing power of other digital currencies. In real application scenarios, many people are reluctant to undertake the risk of digital currency fluctuations. They only like to denominate in fiat currency, so WUSD (stablecoin) that is generated by collateralizing WICC has better potential than WICC to become purchasing power. Huatong Security accepts WUSD as a payment method to buy HK/US Pre-IPO stocks shortens the time when some people want to convert WUSD into the purchasing power of Hong Kong and US stocks (In the normal process, this user must first sell, exchange fiat currency, and then open an account to buy Hong Kong and US stocks). The new project WaykiX shortens the time required to transform WICC into the purchasing power of investing in various assets around the world.
Bitcoin’s technology has not been greatly updated since its inception, but its value remains the leader because of its liquidity. Similarly, in my opinion, the market value of USDT has soared because liquidity is becoming more and more mature. WaykiChain’s future development is also inseparable from liquidity.
As mentioned above, liquidity is important. If you want to improve liquidity, you can cash out first and use cash to purchase most of things you want. However cash out itself is not what a project expects, because it will dump the price when a lot of people doing that. Therefore, collateralizing assets, generating stablecoins, and then enabling stablecoins to generate purchasing power has become a perfect model, which is the essence of WaykiChain 3-Token Economy Model.
Regarding purchasing power, first we need to know what users want to buy. Many public chain projects, including WaykiChain, have begun to explore what kind of products and services that users want to buy. For example, betting products, value-added game services, or even e-commerce. All of these end up with nearly no results. As speculators’ paradise, the cryptocurrency circle usually care about borrowing money to make money. So, there is nothing more interesting for them than lending and making money. These people may not have the need to play games or buy things, but they must have the demand to make money. Therefore, finance must be the right direction for blockchain projects. WaykiChain will all in DeFi for at least the next two years.
Many people say that WUSD is a stablecoin, so it needs to be compared with USDT. Rather than emphasize WUSD itself, I would rather like to say that WaykiChain ’s CDP is a lending system and service, and WUSD is just a stable value certificate. I am more concerned about the capacity of the CDP lending business itself, and whether it can provide users with the value of lending. As for when WUSD can become a freely circulating currency, it will take a long time to see how much purchasing power is endowed. Maybe at first, WUSD could buy WICC, WGRT, then the index of various global assets, then other digital currencies, then some Hong Kong stocks and US stocks, and finally maybe you can buy two packs of snacks with WUSD downstairs.
Simple preview of the new product WaykiX, users can trade all kinds of global assets, including digital currencies, indices, stocks, commodity futures, and even contracts. We have high expectations for this product because we feel it can meet the “purchase” needs of most existing community users. This product learns from the Synthetix project and adds some local elements of WaykiChain, including the technical security reinforcement, as well as the improvement of the economic model and the risk resistance level.
Someone asked, Ethereum has a complete DeFi ecosystem, and there are countless projects to start a business together. Why does WaykiChain have the power to fight with Ether? I would like to share a few points. The DeFi of Ethereum is aimed at users of Ethereum. We are currently targeting WaykiChain users. There is no conflict at present. In addition, DeFi seems to have a variety of patterns. It is nothing more than the four major categories of deposits, loans, liquidity, and derivatives. Our current developer community is not as prosperous as Ethereum, so WaykiChain uses a point-to-face model to first construct the core and head of DeFi to ensure quality and safety. When it can form a minimum closed-loop, and then let developers support those long-tail applications. Although it is a bit contrary to the concept of decentralization, we believe that this is an indispensable process for the implementation of the blockchain public chain。
I mentioned three directions in the first chapter on how to create the value of WaykiChain, the first is technology, the second is business model and applications, and the third is the marketing model and bubble.
In fact, a healthy blockchain community is also attracted by these three parts of value, a core developer community, some coin holders with business needs, and a group of speculation or investors. To achieve the top five public chains in the world, these three groups must be huge.
WaykiChain attracts the core developer community through the leading technology mechanism and the friendliness of public chain development. This is the reason why WaykiChain has invested a lot of resources in the technical level of the public chain.
WaykiChain continues to create value for currency holders to meet their needs through the DeFi business.
And eye-catching marketing methods to attract investors and speculators when market conditions improve and new market capital are sufficient.
The bull market is short while the bear market is long. In the bear market, WaykiChain needs to continue to play at the table in a way with a high winning rate. These are my personal opinions. Welcome to discuss more with me.

Streamr Community Survey Resultshttps://preview.redd.it/yhtbxppp9aj41.png?width=4000&format=png&auto=webp&s=ec05fb5230689ff8364a8bbde0d481bef8a6e83b
Inspired by the Community Fund, Streamr recently conducted a survey to better understand the community and gain insights into the effectiveness of Streamr messaging.
Below is a summary of the most insightful answers and Streamr’s response (qualitative answers have been summarised by theme and incorporated into the charts).
1. When and how did you first learn about Streamr?
Exchanges and token searching are the leading ways in which the Streamr community discovered the project. Social media follows in second. This might indicate that those with an interest in token trading comprise the majority of respondents.
Social media use and word of mouth also show their influence, which falls in line with Streamr marketing intelligence.
The prominence of the Bitfinex exchange and ICO suggest that many respondents have been following the project from its early days.
2. What first attracted you to the Streamr project?
Many respondents indicated that the Streamr tech stack and goal drew their interest to the project, with a particular emphasis on data monetisation and individual ownership.
This emphasis is not surprising because much of Streamr’s recent messaging has focused on the upcoming Data Unions framework and data monetisation holds the most day-to-day use potential for non-devs.
“The concept of decentralizing and monetising data.” “Giving people back control of their data sounded like a worthy project and the IoT examples sounded like ideal application of blockchain technology.”The Network, Marketplace, and decentralization of the data economy also came through in the answers.
“It is interesting how Streamr wants to build a decentralized data network based on a blockchain other than Bitcoin. Something scalable that allows connection to IoT devices.” “Decentralized IoT and the idea of a data marketplace where buyers and sellers meet and establish a price for possibly huge amounts of data.”
3. Which tool/development area are you most interested in?
The popularity of Data Unions, followed closely by the popularity of the Marketplace, reinforce the sentiment that emerged in answers to question two; the Streamr community is captured by the idea of selling their data.
The Network falls slightly behind, despite being arguably the central element of the project. This might be expected due to its highly technical nature and the recent focus on Data Unions.
4. On which channels do you engage with Streamr content or the community?
No surprises that Telegram, Twitter, and Reddit continue to drive the community engagement. This may highlight that respondents here are primarily of a non-technical background, with only a handful visiting the Community Dev Forum.
5. What do you currently like most about the project?
The results here were harder to pin down to distinct themes, with Swash taking a narrow lead, followed by Streamr team (thanks!), and enthusiasm for the project’s tech goal of making real-time data more open and tradeable.
“Swash… All the potential DApps that can be built on Streamr… And taking back control of our data.”The potential of the Streamr stack to act as a platform for others to build on, a platform for existing projects to integrate with, and a tool for a more fluid data economy also came across.
“Swash! Because it is very pragmatic and actually produces the data in decentralized environment. […] At the moment, the most difficult part [in a] data economy is ‘having meta data’ because no one shares. Swash and similar DApps produce this for Streamr.” “The idea of revolutionising the data economy… And the good community.”
6. Apart from the token price, what do you dislike or what would you like to see the project do differently?
It’s clear from these results, and other discussion in the community, that three key areas of uncertainty come forward:
“It’s a bit disheartening to see that token economics is talked about probably once or twice a year (when prompted by community members pushing for updates on it).” “Staking the token as part of the network. Its the only reason a lot of people were interested originally. Please don’t push it back further. Streamr should also be prepared to talk about the token — it feels like Streamr always has to be forced to mention it.” “Tokeneconomics. Now you know who I am. 😁”It’s true that despite various discussions in the community, direct comms on how the token’s utility has progressed since the whitepaper is lacking. This is largely because the token’s function is still developing, and won’t take full form until the later stages of the Network are rolled out.
The token is currently used as a means of payment on the Marketplace and for individuals to earn DATA by contributing to Data Unions. Still to come are functionalities around token stake checking and incentive mechanisms enabling node rewards.
Proposed solution: A blog from Henri and the team on some of these plans as they take shape could address some of the uncertainty. Keep an eye out for an announcement on tokenomics in the coming weeks.
2. Project direction/partnerships info
“A little bit more of a plan to understand future partnerships and developments. Something that should be easy to understand for the Average Joe. I think it will reach more potential investors.” “More internal development communication should be public for Streamr to be a decentralized project, otherwise it’s a company and its followers.” “Improve transparency. I fully understand that ICO investors are not shareholders, but it’s often very hard to get a sense of what you’re working on and with who, and why. Things get announced, but little is known about your mission or business goals.” “Proper financial, personnel and visions report. Quarterly please. This is something that brings certainty to the project, as the community will know how things are going in the grand scheme.”Giving granular updates on the project’s direction (beyond tech updates) or the status of partnerships, while desirable for the community, is not always possible or profitable for the project. This is due to NDAs, coordination between multiple external parties, shifting priorities, value considerations on timing and announcement strategies — plus many more case-by-case factors.
Proposed solution: Streamr will produce a yearly report outlining the achievements, challenges, goals ahead with a breakdown and comments from each project team, and a high level overview on finances. This would also add value for potential partners and less active followers to get an official insight into the project’s status.
“Lack of awareness of the project. Recent community products [Data Unions] marketing is good, but it was about 1 to 1.5 years of nothing prior to that.” “There could be more articles just applying Streamr Core to interesting things, interacting with smart contracts etc. I feel we get one integration every 1.5/2 months, but sometimes simpler is better.” “Communicate the vision and the market you’re addressing in a more boastful way.” “More applications for making data something tangible that you show like a footprint to exemplify to no-coiners how much value the average person generates.”Desire comes through for increased communication from the project, focused on how to apply the Streamr tech and attract a broader audience. The comms team face a continual (and interesting) challenge to strike the right balance between updating followers, attracting devs to build and use Streamr tools, communicating the project’s goals, and generating user awareness for products still in production.
Proposed solution: A comms shift towards adoption and attracting Data Union users outside the current technical and web3 sphere is on the horizon, which will address some of these suggestions.
Further examples of Core in action, perhaps with more accessible canvas templates as starting points, is another possibility in the future.
7. How would you describe Streamr to a stranger?
It’s great to see so many of you on-message, which is encouraging from a marketing perspective, and it’s also great to understand which elements of the project you put forward independently. As we have also seen in earlier responses, there is a preference for the upcoming Data Unions feature, which was actually added to the Marketplace design after the Streamr project was founded.
Here are a few of our favourite responses:
“An open and permissionless network for the data economy, connecting producers to buyers, not owned by a centralized authority.” “A real-time P2P data network where each participant can control and manage data they produce. Data integrity, authenticity and security is ensured by the blockchain.” “Real-time data layenetwork and marketplace.” “A platform where you can sell and buy data in real time.” “A toolkit for constructing decentralized data streams which buyers and sellers trade in a marketplace.”
8. Where are you located?
The most active community members are based in Europe. Other social media analytics show a more balanced follower distribution.
Geographic sample of 5,000 Twitter followers from Followerwonk
9. What’s your professional background (student, developer, designer) and do you have a skill or area of expertise you would like to volunteer to support the project?
Developers take the lead by profession, which is understandable because many of the current tools and comms are aimed at those from a technical background. It was nice to see such a broad spectrum of career paths represented, drawn by the goal of a more open real-time data economy.
Thank you to those who offered to contribute their skills. We will be in touch should we require any assistance.
And thank you to all who took the time to complete the survey. Your feedback and support go a long way towards helping Streamr reach its goals.
If you’re not already a part of Streamr’s most popular social channel, what are you waiting for? Please join the community on Telegram to discuss the results, and keep an eye out across all of Streamr’s social media for updates on the proposed solutions and more.
