'We have elected to put our money and faith in a mathematical framework that is free of politics and human error.' Tyler Winklevoss

We at PK Mwangi Global Consulting believe that we are today experiencing a pivotal moment in the history of mankind. The gradual entry of blockchain technology into our ordinary lives as well as into other fields of finance and industry heralds fundamental change in the way we conduct our lives and businesses.


Just like the internet changed the world (society and business) in unimaginable ways, blockchain technology is bound to fundamentally change the way we live our lives and conduct business. The world of finance has been changed for ever as cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) become more mainstream and continue to deliver rates of return previously deemed unachievable. Drawing comparisons to physical gold, bitcoin is slowly taking its place as the asset to go to as a store of value. The closely-associated Litecoin (LTC), referred to by insiders as the digital silver, is also drawing comparison to physical silver.


Other crypto-currencies like Ethereum (ETH) and Ripple (XRP) seek to alter the way we conduct our lives and business by providing digital platforms on which real-life solutions can be developed. ‘Smart contracts’ as envisaged by Ethereum developers aim to provide society and business with traceable, transparent and irreversible self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller (or countersignatories) being directly written into lines of code distributed across a decentralized blockchain network. 


IOTA (MIOTA), on the other hand, seeks to leverage on developments in artificial intelligence (AI) in what is referred to as the ‘Internet of Things’ allowing devices, computers and machines to interact with one another without the intervention of humans.


To this end PK Mwangi Global Consulting will be delivering articles that cover our views on the future of blockchain technology as a whole and specific cryptocurrencies (mainly the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap) and the respective investment opportunities these cryptocurrencies provide.

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum is a blockchain platform created for other blockchain-based decentralised applications (DApps) to be developed upon. Typically, these projects will raise funds through Initial Coin Offerings- ICOs (or ERC-20 tokens) performed on the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum’s unique selling point is its creation and execution of ‘smart contracts’ which means transactions and agreements entered into between parties are immutable, non-retractable and fool-proof. Ethereum, therefore, through 'smart contracts’ brings to the table transparency, trust, mathematical logic and a bond between two parties that can’t be broken.

Ripple (XRP)

Ripple is a real-time gross settlement system, currency exchange and remittance network that enables cross-border transfer of funds between banks. Used by companies such as MoneyGram, UBS and Santander, Ripple is increasingly being adopted by global banks and payment networks as settlement infrastructure technology. It’s superior transaction and transfer speeds give it a marked advantage over current systems like VISA and SWIFT. Using XRP banks can, therefore, source liquidity on demand in real-time while payment providers can reach new markets, lower foreign exchange costs and provide faster payment settlement.

Stellar (XLM)

Stellar is a digital platform that connects banks, payment systems and people enabling cross-border money transfers and remittances between individuals. Stellar can handle transfers between fiat-based currencies and between cryptocurrencies and has partnered with IBM and Deloitte to build such cross-border payments applications. It's use case, therefore, lies in its ability to enable instantaneous cross-border person-to-person money transfers and remittances between any pair of currencies at almost no cost.

Litecoin (LTC)

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments between parties anywhere in the world. Litecoin is an early spinoff of bitcoin and features faster transaction confirmation times and improved storage efficiency than its predecessor. It’s use-case lies primarily in its use as a medium of exchange to make payments; and thereby facilitating global commerce.

IOTA (MIOTA)

Based on a different protocol to Blockchain, namely Tangle, IOTA seeks to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable fee-less microtransactions and create a data marketplace for machines and devices. Powering a secure, scalable and feeless transaction ecosystem, IOTA will create a machine economy devoid of human intervention while allowing machines and devices to transact with one another. To this end the IOTA Foundation has entered into partnership with such industry giants as Volkswagen and Bosch.
