The cryptocurrency market is constantly being shaked by the waves of crisis. The fabulous rise is replaced by a crushing fall. Nevertheless, attentive observers tend to see logic and certain fair patterns in this chaos. How not to lose by investing in a project? After all, they are building their own blockchain. But which is really functioning?
In the comparative table, the main characteristics are given, depending on the testing stages carried out. They speak for themselves.
Mainnet is the original and main network for Bitcoin transactions, where satoshis have real economic value. When run with no arguments, all Bitcoin Core programs default to Bitcoin’s main network (mainnet). However, for development, it’s safer and cheaper to use Bitcoin’s test network (testnet) where the satoshis spent have no real-world value. Testnet also relaxes some restrictions (such as standard transaction checks) so you can test functions which might currently be disabled by default on mainnet.
Additionally, the capitalization and prices charts of the first two projects from the table are shown. They are EOS and ICON, which made a lot of noise in the cryptocommunity.
