For example, consider if bitcoin had 10000 users. 10 of them use a full node wallet while the other 9990 use an SPV wallet. If a miner attacked the system by printing infinite bitcoins and spending coins without a valid signature, then the 9990 SPV wallets would accept those fake coins as payment, and trade the coins amongst themselves. After a time those coins would likely be the ancestors of most active coins in the 9990-SPV-wallet ecosystem. Bitcoin would split into two currencies: full-node-coin and SPV-coin.
Now the fraud miners may become well known, perhaps being published on bitcoin news portals, but the 9990-SPV-wallet ecosystem has a strong incentive to be against any rollback. Their recent transactions would disappear and they'd lose money. They would argue that they've already been using the coin for a while, and it works perfectly fine, and anyway a coin that can be spent in 9990 places is more useful than one that can be spent in just 10 places. The SPV-wallet community might even decide to use something like invalidateblock to make sure their SPV-coin doesn't get reorg'd out of existence. There'd also likely be a social attack, with every bitcoin community portal being flooded with bots and shills advocating the merits of SPV-coin. This is not a hypothetical because we already saw the same thing during the scalability conflict 2015-2017.
Before you know it, "Bitcoin" would become SPV-coin with inflation and arbitrary seizure. Any normal user could download software called "Bitcoin wallet" which they trust and have used before, but instead of using Bitcoin they'd be using SPV-coin. You may be one of the 10 wallets backed by a full node, but that won't do much good to you when 9990 users happily use another coin as their medium of exchange.

How Lyfcoin is Creating a New Staking System
The Proof of Work (PoW) Consensus Algorithm was the standard in terms of facilitating cryptocurrency staking. However, some lapses in the structure triggered the need for a new system, which is the Proof of Stake (PoS) Consensus Algorithm. The latter appears to have more features to offer as far as cryptocurrency staking is concerned.
In the new PoS Consensus Algorithm that Project Lyfcoin is projecting, some of the features are:
1. Soft Staking As the crypto industry continues to boom, more opportunities will become available. Now, Project Lyfcoin identified the need to recreate the traditional crypto staking methods. That informed the reason for the launch of Soft Staking, which is a cryptocurrency staking method that maintains a fluid system or liquidity while providing the users with returns on their stakes. Besides, the Soft Staking variant empowers cryptocurrency investors to remain in complete control of their digital assets at all times.
2. State-of-art Staking Services Lyfcoin also creates a universal ecosystem where cryptocurrency investors can have instant access to funding options using cryptocurrencies. In the universal and state-of-art staking service ecosystem it creates, crypto investors can have access to many services from one interface. Some of the crypto-related services offered therein are:
• Crypto shopping • Cryptocurrency exchanges • Cryptocurrency learning portal where up-to-date knowledge of the crypto market will be shared.
3. Randomized Validation The Proof of Stake (PoS) Consensus Algorithm created by Project Lyfcoin is the one that ensures transparency. It is contrary to the security model of the PoW Consensus Algorithm that empowers the highest value owners.
Instead, Project Lyfcoin’s PoS Consensus Mechanism uses a deterministic model to ensure that the validators with the largest stakes aren’t always favored.
Highlights of Project LyfcoinProject Lyfcoin is here to reinvent how cryptographic transactions are facilitated. For the success of this project and to change how things have been done all these while, Project Lyfcoin has the following properties to offer:
Crypto Marketplace It is high time cryptocurrencies integrated into the mainstream financial system where they will roll with the likes of fiat currencies like Euros, Dollars, and Pound Sterling. Of course, that proves to be a mountain too high to climb because the government and centralized financial regulators will kick against that as they did during the hay days of Bitcoin. That notwithstanding, Project Lyfcoin opted to push for that cause by creating a crypto marketplace where digital assets will be used for payments.
Worthy of mention is that the Project Lyfcoin crypto marketplace in view is set to give the likes of Alibaba, eBay, and Amazon a run for their money.Conclusion Project Lyfcoin creates a new system for cryptocurrency enthusiasts who are interested in staking their digital assets for passive income.

Can the early success of major crypto exchanges propel them to winning the broader consumer finance market?submitted by mickhagen to genesisblockhq [link] [comments]
This is the first part of Crypto Banking Wars — a new series that examines what crypto-native company is most likely to become the bank of the future. Who is best positioned to reach mainstream adoption in consumer finance?
While crypto allows the world to get rid of banks, a bank will still very much be necessary for this powerful technology to reach the masses. We believe a crypto-native company, like Genesis Block, will become the bank of the future.
In an earlier series, Crypto-Powered, we laid out arguments for why crypto-native companies have a huge edge in the market. When you consider both the broad spectrum of financial use-cases and the enormous value unlocked through these DeFi protocols, you can see just how big of an unfair advantage blockchain tech becomes for companies who truly understand and leverage it. Traditional banks and fintech unicorns simply won’t be able to keep up.
The power players of consumer finance in the 21st century will be crypto-native companies who build with blockchain technology at their core.The crypto landscape is still nascent. We’re still very much in the fragmented, unbundled phase of the industry lifecycle. Beyond what Genesis Block is doing, there are signs of other companies slowly starting to bundle financial services into what could be an all-in-one bank replacement.
So the key question that this series hopes to answer:
Which crypto-native company will successfully become the bank of the future?We obviously think Genesis Block is well-positioned to win. But we certainly aren’t the only game in town. In this series, we’ll be doing an analysis of who is most capable of thwarting our efforts. We’ll look at categories like crypto exchanges, crypto wallets, centralized lending & borrowing services, and crypto debit card companies. Each category will have its own dedicated post.
Today we’re analyzing big crypto exchanges. The two companies we’ll focus on today are Coinbase (biggest American exchange) and Binance (biggest global exchange). They are the top two exchanges in terms of Bitcoin trading volume. They are in pole position to winning this market — they have a huge existing userbase and strong financial resources.
Will Coinbase or Binance become the bank of the future? Can their early success propel them to winning the broader consumer finance market? Is their growth too far ahead for anyone else to catch up? Let’s dive in.
BinanceThe most formidable exchange on the global stage is Binance (Crunchbase). All signs suggest they have significantly more users and a stronger balance sheet than Coinbase. No other exchange is executing as aggressively and relentlessly as Binance is. The cadence at which they are shipping and launching new products is nothing short of impressive. As Tushar Jain from Multicoin argues, Binance is Blitzscaling.
Here are some of the products that they’ve launched in the last 18 months. Only a few are announced but still pre-launch.
Can they create a cohesive & united product experience?
Binance WeaknessesBinance is strong, but they do have a few major weaknesses that could slow them down.
Binance Wrap UpI don’t believe Binance is likely to succeed with a homegrown product aimed at the consumer finance market. Their current product — which is focused heavily on professional traders and speculators — is unlikely to become the bank of the future. If they wanted to enter the broader consumer market, I believe it’s much more likely that they will acquire a company that is getting early traction. They are not afraid to make acquisitions (Trust, JEX, WazirX, DappReview, BxB, CoinMarketCap, Swipe).
However, never count CZ out. He is a hustler. Binance is executing so aggressively and relentlessly that they will always be on the shortlist of major contenders.
CoinbaseThe crypto-native company that I believe is more likely to become the bank of the future is Coinbase (crunchbase). Their dominance in America could serve as a springboard to winning the West (Binance has a stronger foothold in Asia). Coinbase has more than 30M users. Their exchange business is a money-printing machine. They have a solid reputation as it relates to compliance and working with regulators. Their CEO is a longtime member of the crypto community. They are rumored to be going public soon.
Coinbase StrengthsLet’s look at what makes them strong and a likely contender for winning the broader consumer finance market.
Coinbase WeaknessesLet’s now look at some things that could hold them back.
Coinbase Wrap UpAt Genesis Block, we‘re proud to be working with Coinbase. They are a fantastic company. However, I don’t believe that they’ll succeed in building their own product for the broader consumer finance market. While they have incredible design, there are no signs that they are focused on or capable of internally building this type of product.
Similar to Binance, I think it’s far more likely that Coinbase acquires a promising young startup with strong growth.
Honorable MentionsOther US-based exchanges worth mentioning are Kraken, Gemini, and Bittrex. So far we’ve seen very few signs that any of them will aggressively attack broader consumer finance. Most are going in the way of Binance — listing more assets and adding more pro tools like margin and futures trading. And many, like Coinbase, are trying to attract more institutional customers. For example, Gemini with their custody product.
Wrap UpCoinbase and Binance have huge war chests and massive reach. For that alone, they should always be considered threats to Genesis Block. However, their products are very, very different than the product we’re building. And their approach is very different as well. They are trying to educate and onboard people into crypto. At Genesis Block, we believe the masses shouldn’t need to know or care about it. We did an entire series about this, Spreading Crypto.
Most everyone needs banking — whether it be to borrow, spend, invest, earn interest, etc. Not everyone needs a crypto exchange. For non-crypto consumers (the mass market), the differences between a bank and a crypto exchange are immense. Companies like Binance and Coinbase make a lot of money on their crypto exchange business. It would be really difficult, gutsy, and risky for any of them to completely change their narrative, messaging, and product to focus on the broader consumer market. I don’t believe they would ever risk biting the hand that feeds them.
In summary, as it relates to a digital bank aimed at the mass market, I believe both Coinbase and Binance are much more likely to acquire a startup in this space than they are to build it themselves. And I think they would want to keep the brand/product distinct and separate from their core crypto exchange business.
So back to the original question, is Coinbase and Binance a threat to Genesis Block? Not really. Not today. But they could be, and for that, we want to stay close to them.
