We identify trends such as rising commit levels, consistent commit levels, a rising number of core developers, and other related areas of development activity. In the process of conducting our research, we analyzed 4,831 individual repositories, 1,246,318 code commits, […]
Today we’re starting an open call for startup advisors, experienced professionals and investors to register interest in supporting our accelerator Base Camp.
The launch of The Convergence Alliance brought together the leaders building the next phase of the Web from open source protocols, enterprise, start-ups, government bodies, and academia.
Last week (13 March) we announced our evolved investment thesis: The Convergence Stack. This frames both our investments and their relationship with one another as well as the wider ‘crypto’ industry in an OSI-inspired model from hardware at the bottom to the application layer at the top that combines DLT with IoT, Big Data & AI.
If you think investing in crypto is hard – investing in our Convergence Thesis, how DLT combines and converges with IoT, Big Data and AI is even harder. The technical complexity of keeping pace with multiple deep technologies and their interactions is hugely demanding and requires a dedicated team of technical analysts who can only really learn by doing. This means they must be active developers, administrators and participants of networks.
The long-term success of token economies and the protocols they are built around is led by fundamentals, and ultimately adoption. How useful is the protocol, to how many end users? This question is fundamental to our vision of the Convergence Economy.
