Several tokens are on the watchlist these days because of launching their own blockchain which will have an impact on market price and overall growth of the project.
Oyster, May 29, 2018:
The hybrid blockchain, being built on IOTA’s Tangle technology and Ethereum’s smart contract framework, will see daylight on May 29, 2018. After the launch, the Oyster Pearl platform can be used for what it’s built for: disrupting the online advertisement model and directly connecting content creators with content consumers.
TRON, May 31, 2018:
Tron has recently been in the spotlight a lot—and the launch of their much-anticipated platform will show whether Tron can live up to the high expectations surrounding the project. To boost enthusiasm even higher and as a sign of appreciation to the Ethereum community, Tron distributed 30 million tokens through an airdrop on April 21. This airdrop occurred because the Tron token will move from the Ethereum blockchain on to its own mainnet, a migration that’s being supported by most major exchanges.
What will change? With owning the new tokens: token holders will have voting rights and elect Super Delegates to secure the network.
NULS May 2018:
Nuls could very well be a sleeping giant and has remained mostly under the radar for now. This could all change with the release of their mainnet. The NULS team has set out to deliver a customizable modular blockchain ecosystem that allows for smart contracts, multi-chain mechanisms, and cross chain consensus. This basically means that it will become a platform that allows for dapps and cross-blockchain transactions.
EOS, June 2, 2018:
EOS is another blockbuster blockchain to launch its mainnet. Expectations are incredibly high, indicated by the market valuation of EOS being over $15 billion(!). Over the last couple of weeks, the price of EOS has exploded following several new exchange listings, a focus on inter-blockchain communication, a VC partnership announcement and the fact that already 18 dapps are planning to launch on the EOS blockchain.
EOS will be needed to buy into the ICOs of the dapps—these dapps and their users will also start using EOS to convert other tokens and for transactions on the blockchain, creating a genuine demand for the cryptocurrency.
EOS will be the next highly impressive blockchain launch by industry veteran Dan Larimer, who also launched Bitshares and Steemit.
The release of the Eos io distributed operating system will follow the mainnet launch. A vote for block producers will follow soon afterward.
What will change? EOS tokens will have voting rights. Also, the development of distributed apps is expected.
Ever since Ontology distributed its token through airdrops, the project’s cryptocurrency price has been on an absolute tear. Even though the exact date of launch is still a mystery, the highly promising roadmap of the Ontology project indicates that the launch will occur in Q2, of which June is the last month.
Recently, Ontology launched a code pre-release of its main network. So far, no details have been given on how the balances will be credited.
What is known is that current ONT holders will double their balance when the mainnet launch finally arrives.
VeChain, June 30, 2018:
The launch of the VeChain Thor mainnet might turn out to be the biggest one of this list. This is because of the potential applications that will be introduced to the public with the launch of their mainnet.
VeChain has an incredible network of partners and the VeChain team has indicated multiple times that they want to start rolling out dapps on their platform for these partners as soon as possible. Seeing dapps being launched with the mainnet is even more likely given the fact that the VeChain platform has already been functioning privately since 2015.
On May 1, the VeChain blockchain was launched for testing and the team has been continuously updating the community about the progress of the mainnet as well as the new features and dynamics of their platform. The launch also entails a new name for the token, from the ERC-20 based VEN to the VeChain Thor based VET. We’ll most likely see VEN becoming VET on June 30.
What will change? VeChain holders will see their assets multiply, receiving 100 new assets for each VEN old token. This is for the purposes of more intuitive accounting.
