Cryptocurrency is one of the major creations of this century, getting traction for offering required transparency and removing trust based dependencies on economies while transacting. Within a few years of its introduction, number of currencies have become a part of the growing Token Economy. Over 900 Cryptocurrencies added to the market, alone in 2017. The most trending Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, valued over US $19,000 and recently, a market cap of US $ 318,278, 828, 649
The overall growth of Cryptomarket and currencies reflect a bright future, while the only major hindrance these currencies have is ‘‘mass liquidity’. This factor becomes an alarming issue for businesses based on Cryptocurrencies, owing to the fact that their currency would not get successful in the market and would not reach the required ‘retail adoption’. 46% of the total 902 crowd-sale based Cryptocurrencies failed in the year 2017, due to various factors, with liquidity as the major one
In the consumer driven service & retail domains, demand creates growth and advancement, and utility plays a crucial role in defining demand. For the cryptocurrencies to find their way in retail adoption, they need to find their utility in the retail and service domains, and the demand will grow accordingly.
Hexad Ecosystem is a one-stop solution, facilitating users by offering access to liquidity via on-chain and off-chain transactions. The ecosystem offers trading, exchange, conversion, selling, purchasing and transfer of Crypto and Fiat currencies across the globe. Hexad Ecosystem provides an ease of managing all the digital assets, with an access to over 100 fiat and 20 crypto tokens.
Market and Challenges
The Retail & Service domain works on cut throat competition, marginal profits and using technology to grow. Going online is one of the leading solutions opted by businesses, to bring the required exposure and returns. But, using internet to offer products and services has its own limitations, considering payments, as compliances designed by the government and preferences of the end-consumers change from country to country.
Data & Image via The Enterprise Guide to Global e-Commerce
As per the studies conducted by different behemoths of the corporates, the e-Commerce industry is flourishing and set to grow manifolds in the years to come. As per Selfstartr, the overall growth of e-Commerce B2C Global Sales is expected to reach $1.7 T by the year 2020, with an annual growth of 11%.
The introduction of Bitcoin highlighted the Blockchain Technology and created a new route for businesses to choose. With time, new Cryptocurrencies came into existence, creating the Token Economy. These currencies were free from the shackles of the governments and compliances, so could serve the purpose of Universal currencies. As per the last update of Wikipedia, on April 10, 2018, there were more than 1565 different cryptocurrencies available in the market, growing continuously. This could aid the e-Commerce sector as well, to use the Cryptocurrencies against services and products, but this was limited by their acceptance across the globe.
The Crypto Economy is volatile and fluctuates as per the rate of different markets. The Tokens lack real life utility and users avoid holding currencies, when one cannot make use of them for availing services. This is why new tokens in the Crypto Economy are traded, instead of being used, and they disappear with the fall in their rates. To avail services through Cryptocurrencies, one needs to liquidate them first, convert to fiat and then use for availing services.
Our Aim and Goals
The unsuccessful adoption of Cryptocurrencies created a question upon their utility and viability. Without deriving a feasible usage, the future of Cryptocurrencies grows darker. And this is what is happening to various currencies, where they are traded, instead of being used, ending up in complete failure, as they lose the market share.
Creating utility for Cryptocurrency is need of the hour, for not only strengthening the Crypto Economy, but at the same time, providing a fix to the world for the variations in currencies and payment modes.
Even after a couple of years down the line, Cryptocurrencies are still not considered as actual currency, rather a mode to trade and make more cash. One of the reasons for doing the same is major fluctuations in the cryptocurrency exchange rate. The economy needs to be redefined in a manner, where Cryptocurrencies are used in the same fashion as fiat. And this is possible through creating a stable ecosystem for cryptocurrencies, where the volatility is controlled and currencies’ rates do not fluctuate.
Once these major issues of Cryptocurrencies are addressed, the Crypto Economy will bloom efficiently, growing manifolds and exploring new possibilities. Our aim is to fix these pain points of the Token economy and deliver a permanent fix to the Crypto world, while identifying its unexplored potential.
We want to address the lack of liquidity and common man adoption of Cryptocurrencies.
