According to reports, one magazine has ranked Ethereum (ETH), number 2 on their top-10 best Blockchain protocols with number one digital asset by market capitalization Bitcoin (BTC) left out of their list altogether. It is the most recent issue of the Rising Blockchain magazine that listed Ethereum (ETH) as the second-best Blockchain protocol leaving out the almighty Bitcoin (BTC).
Ethereum (ETH) Price Today – ETH / USD
The top 10 best Blockchain protocols include those the editors feel will “bring change to the world this year faster than other projects. The number one protocol according to the list is the Graphene Protocol.
Does the Graphene Protocol Really Rank Above Ethereum (ETH)?
The ratings used to gather the data does not include much when it comes to colorful explanations. Speaking of the EOS Blockchain, the magazine states that the EOS protocol is home to a transaction reversal mechanism that functions through the “Arbitration Court” concept. Via the list BitShares comes before Steem, although Steem has on-boarded more users than the majority of the Blockchain platforms on the list can name.
While BitShares, on the other hand, reportedly went through a very tough period in the last year. BitUSD lost its USD peg in a huge way, for starters. All in all, BitShares has only less than a quarter of a billion invested in it. When compared to the EOS Blockchain protocol, BitShares almost should not make the “top 10” list overall.
Ethereum (ETH) came second in the rankings. A list of dApps was also provided. It includes SONM, a digital token we had not covered much on since its ICO back in 2017. Although SONM’s mainnet was launched last July. As of press time, the protocol just had only 125 active deals. SONM is a platform designed to facilitate renting of computer resources. Everyone was excited about it at the initial stage, but the token’s performance after its ICO eventually forced it away from the forefront.
As for NEO, we can agree that the protocol certainly belongs on the same top list like Ethereum (ETH), although after a number of years following its AntChain days, the digital asset is yet to record a major hit. However, it was recently discovered that there are dozens of NEO dApps that no one is talking about.

CCN Allows Blockchain-based Businesses to Submit News for a Fee
Just as the case with some traditional businesses including real estate where firms have to publish a notice in the newspaper, CCN gives Blockchain businesses the opportunity to submit their news for charges. The news is usually marked as a sponsored story or press release and attributed to Tom Clancy. We understand that CCN’s writers organically publish content on breaking news and highlight items of interest in the Blockchain scene and, increasingly, the regular financial industry.
