A new investment structure called First Loan Acquisition (ILP) can solve these problems to some extent and slowly begin to adopt. ILP is actually a universal digital loan agreement that uses knowing your customer (KYC) smart contract technology, a way to target a company rather than a specific cryptocurrency . A loan agreement means that investors can receive interest on company performance and trade these loans in a manner similar to cryptocurrency. Because ILPs are more secure and because they can be sold to other investors like stocks, they provide investors with a safer way to invest in new cryptocurrency or blockchain companies. The best practitioner of ILP is Blockhive. This is an Estonian blockchain incubator that issues the ILP protocol instead of the traditional digital currency. The pass obtained by Blockhive's investors can be used as a creditor agreement, which means that these agreements can be traded like other digital assets, but they can also allow investors to jointly own 20% of the company's profit ownership.

What—and who—is EOS? The new blockchain system is supposed to be a much faster and more efficient alternative to Ethereum. Ethereum was designed to be not only a cryptocurrency but also a platform for running blockchain-based computer programs called smart contracts. But it’s slow to process transactions, because every node in the Ethereum network must keep track of every account balance and the state of every smart contract. EOS’s developers say that by delegating the responsibility for processing transactions to just 21 “block producers,” which are to be elected by the community of token holders, the system will be able to achieve thousands of transactions per second (compared with just 15 per second for Ethereum). A startup called Block.one is spearheading the development of EOS’s software. Its CTO, Dan Larimer, previously created the blockchain-based financial services platform BitShares as well as Steemit, a cryptocurrency-powered publishing platform. Each relied on a novel consensus protocol called “delegated proof of stake,” which Larimer is also using with EOS. No miners: In cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, nodes called “miners” spend lots of computing power competing for chances to add “blocks” of transactions to the chain in return for digital coins. EOS dispenses with mining in favor of allowing token holders to elect block producers, with voting power corresponding to the number of tokens an individual or organization holds. The approach should speed up transaction processing, but it has also drawn critics. Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin has argued that it makes the system vulnerable to vote-buying that would let someone consolidate power over the network.

EOS’s $4 billion crypto-democracy has just launched—and it’s probably going to be ruled by fat cats

A new blockchain aims to vastly speed up transactions, but it was incredibly slow in getting off the ground.
