Syscoin Crushes LunarCrush Rankings


A regular contributor to the weekly update now, House of Chimera, highlighted Syscoin’s number one position on LunarCrush’s Altrank last Friday. For those of you unaware, LunarCrush is a Web3 research aid that ranks crypto projects based on social media activity. On Saturday, Syscoin again was listed amongst the top of LunarCrush’s rankings for NFT projects. By Sunday, Syscoin was still ranked in the top ten, and with their updated NFT list today we are featured prominently as we continue to trend positively.

Syscoin Tops CoinGecko


CoinGecko, the world’s largest independent crypto data aggregator also showed off Syscoin twice in the past week. From February fourth through the tenth, Syscoin was ranked number two out of the ‘Top 30 Trending Coins’, and we were amongst the top trending on Sunday. On the eleventh, CoinGecko unveiled a new category to help people researching tokens from projects that are preparing to utilize ZK rollups, which of course includes Syscoin. Much attention is being placed on ZK technology and the projects who utilize it. Syscoin is not just progressing to become the first protocol with rollups (ZK & Optimistic) imminently live on mainnet, but we are the only one utilizing Bitcoin’s gold standard PoW security and our own data availability solution, PoDA, the importance of which cannot be overstated. 

How you decide to handle the data availability equation is essential to making the most of rollups and attaining the kind of speed required to reach mass adoption and economies of scale. Going forward with rollups, but without a data availability solution is like having a car with no tires. You can get further faster than someone on two feet, but it’s going to be less than ideal.
