The Blockchain Chamber of Commerce (BCC) launched the Blockchain ECOsystem (ECO) (https://blockchainecosystem.io), a social media and rewards platform on the Stellar Blockchain. The ECO will provide an interactive, knowledge-sharing, and promotional platform to showcase leading blockchain professionals and thought leaders from around the globe as well as BCC’s affiliated chapters worldwide.
Many experts believe that blockchain related technologies are still in their infancy yet forecasts suggest that blockchain technology revenue worldwide will experience rapid growth with a market expected to climb to over USD $23 billion by 2023.
“The focus of building out the Blockchain ECOsystem has been to maximize collaboration and exposure for the community developing blockchain technology AND to serve the community looking for trustworthy blockchain education, solutions, and partners,” stated Linda Goetze, President and CEO of the Blockchain Chamber of Commerce. “We’re aiming to help accelerate the movement to a decentralized world while creating a connected community.”
Unlike social media companies that dominate the landscape today, participants in the ECOsystem will be rewarded for their engagement and for performing various tasks. Rewards will be paid out in Lumens (XLM), a top cryptocurrency as determined by total coin value (exceeding $2 billion) being developed by the Stellar Development Foundation.
