MintLayer- A Bitcoin sidechain focused on addressing blockchain pressing issues

Recommended Posts

In the exciting world of Web3 that we are leaning towards, crypto and the concept of blockchain technology have spread like wildfire. While exploring this space, one prevalent limitation easily encountered is blockchain network congestion.

Blockchain network congestion is a thorn in the flesh that can impede transaction speed and raise expenses, potentially causing hiccups in user experiences and even resulting in market fluctuation. This issue primarily stems from increased demand, limited block sizes, and protracted block execution duration times. 

Instances of network congestion have played out in widely adopted blockchains such Ethereum. The DeFi ecosystem for instance, runs on the Ethereum blockchain where nodes are strictly managed by specialized servers rather than average users, effectively inflating prices and leaving most users out of blockchain’s governing decisions. 

As a solution to these drawbacks, the team of MintLayer has come up with the idea of leveraging technologically advanced scalability to deliver network and user security, promote node inclusivity, and maintain long-term sustainability.

By eliminating these flaws, MintLayer aims to empower Bitcoin frameworks with a sidechain that will serve as a future-proof blockchain, improve direct token interoperability and facilitate ways to trade value, create systems, functionalities, and deliver access to a full trustless finance.

The need to improve the current state of security, scalabilty, intereoperabilty and enhance decentralization in blockchain is a glaring one. If MintLayer successfully addresses these issues, and also leverage on top tier CEX listing of its token $ML (listed on Bitget) to drive adoption, then we could witness a more accessible blockchain.

    • I have not been a fan of either of exchanges and wallets native tokens but would wanna explore it now. I took interest from the current hype around BNB, OKB and BGB. These tokens particularly BNB and BGB has shown strength which is obviously due to increase in demand to take part in the most of the launchpool. BNB rose almost 80% in the past 1 year, BGB was on the spotlight with about 190% in a year. OKB may not be left out due to it's potential but has made any significant movement recently. Wallet tokens on the hand have also been doing well but may not be compared to Centralized exchanges imho; I have also monitored few wallet particularly trust wallet and C98 wallet. My best guess is we could be seeing the wallet tokens making impressive price action as we approach post halving due to increase in transactions and I wonder if any one here is considering the prospect BWB token for Bitget wallet. Launching pretty soon and airdrop participation in play. I would appreciate your speculative opinion on it potentials.
    • In the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, playing by the rules isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a must for staying in the game. Most major centralized exchanges (CEXs) strive to adhere to these regulations, implementing measures to prevent money laundering and illicit activities. However, a recent controversy has emerged with BingX, a top CEX, defying US sanctions by allowing Iranian users full access to its platform. BingX facilitates Iranian Rial trading, directly violating US sanctions. They allow Iranian users to trade cryptocurrencies without KYC verification. This, along with offering peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using Iranian fiat currency, further raises red flags. This incident is reminiscent of the past troubles faced by giants like Binance, who were caught facilitating transactions for sanctioned individuals, resulting in a $4.5 billion plea deal with US authorities in 2023. The question remains: will this defiance by BingX lead to its downfall? Regulatory bodies in the US, like the SEC or DOJ, might take action.However, the severity of the situation raises questions about the long-term viability of the exchange and whether it may face the prospect of closure or severe penalties for its actions. As governments grapple with the complexities of digital assets, CEXs that prioritize expansion over compliance will likely face increasing scrutiny and potential consequences.  
    • The exchange continues to offers it's  users significant opportunities through its ecosystem products like PoolX and Launchpool. By participating in these platforms, users can benefit from various services such as staking, liquidity mining, and accessing new project opportunities. PoolX enables users to stake their assets and earn rewards through flexible investment options. Launchpool provides users with the chance to participate in early-stage project offerings. Overall, engaging with Bitget ecosystem products can diversify investment portfolios and facilitate exposure to new and promising projects in the crypto space.
