Solana recently hit headlines halting transactions on the network suddenly for over 3 hours. The pausing of transactions resulted in a complete stop of the networks activity. Solana’s price continued to drop over 25% from all time highs. Investors are worried wondering, is my money safe?
Solana carries a blooming eco-system of smart contracts and scalability. The cost of performance for this project became apparent recently; Centralization. Investors shouldn’t be worried about a temporary halt on the network, it can even prove to be a good thing. Investors seek safety nets for their investments. Blockchain is a newer concept introduced with 10-14% of the population being involved in cryptocurrencies reported in 2021. Centralization becomes more and more part of cryptos journey to mainstream attention. Our team sees the recent dip as a buying opportunity, we’ll explain why.
Q: Is the network shutting down a bad thing?
This is a tough question to answer but not directly, noand yes. The short term stress for holders proves negative but to keep in mind; The financial systems have always been built around trust. A sense of security for holders halting transactions proves there is a solution to worries of network hacking. Besides, this isn’t the first time a blockchain project has been stopped completely. It’s not the end of Solana’s long-term journey. Solana was given a second chance which we talk about more later on. The network proves to have great technology, but user trust comes first.
February 12th, 2020, hackers of the IOTA network find an exploit. Hackers are able to discover a vulnerability in a third party service payment service. Wallets started to lose funds as thieves gained access. To protect the users of the network, IOTA halted the coordinator network. All activity paused as users were given one month to migrate to a new secret key phrase to move their stored funds. The community was livid. How can investors trust in a project that can’t fulfill its promised purpose?
Blockchain network halts can actually be a good thing.. after they happen. This network shutdown was a lucky case for the project. Scares like this bring future security for the network emphasizing the importance in security. Investors bringing large capital should be worried about said network errors. Users gain security in their money with the ability for accounts to be recovered. In this worst care scenario, users of Sol were protected. Solana was given a second chance just like IOTA. IOTA initially after the event fell roughly 50% from local highs to 0.10 cents. IOTA managed to recover and skyrocket up to $2.00 by September 2021. We see events like this as temporary stress on long-term success. Solana’s second hope brings new opportunity for improved tamper resistant infrastructure. The community demand for proven chains continues to grow. Ethereum and Bitcoin remain as top picks due to said trust at least in tech. Blockchain isn’t completely about being anonymous anymore, users like security and NFTs too! Keep your crypto secure on a hardware wallet.

League of Legends is one of the largest played games in North America. Currently the game hosts over 32.5 million players. The game has recently seen large partnerships in its e-sports scene. Teams such as Fnatic partnering with the exchange Crypto.com which has seen partnerships from names such as UFC lately. Evil Geniuses is another large team partnering (source) with a crypto gambling site. The scene sees a sharp connection between gamers and crypto enthusiasts alike. Even companies like AMC enter the scene.
So what would crypto look like in League of Legends?
Nobody knows for sure what it might look like implemented but we have some good guesses. League of legends players own “skins” which are like costumes for various champions. These skins provide unique visual appearances. Skins are sold in the games public shop in the client for the most part. There was a previous time period where skins could be redeem as collectible codes. Unique ideas get presented when NFTs get brought into the picture with skins. Hackers of League of Legends accounts would not be able to steal collectibles.
We surely imagine seeing projects like OpenSea’s NFT platform being connected to League profiles. Users could own NFTs for limited skins and connect their Ethereum ID to redeem the skin on their profile.
We also can imagine Riot Points on the platform being converted to a localized cryptocurrency. Research has shown anything can be a billion dollar crypto project worth investing in. Users could store their currency offline on secure hardware devices to hold long term. Users can invest in the success of Riot sort of like a stock. The currency could implement a burn system and create a token. The token could be traded off platform for everyone to be able to invest.
What are the craziest things Riot Games could implement?
Riot endless options when it comes to opportunities in the blockchain space. If the company continues to expand out to other games like earlier in the year, we could see a metaverse. A world where users could show off their NFT skins or other collectibles. Nobody knows the full stretches of where technology reaches in the near future, our team is excited though.
