Substratum a Year From Now

May 7, 2019

Substratum is not in a good place right now, and investors of the SUB token are arguably in an even worse place. The SubstratumNode V1 is slated to be released in ~8 weeks – at least according to the projection from the company’s most recent “show and tell”. The community sentiment is that the release of V1 will somehow usher in a new era of prosperity for both the Substratum team and investors’ -99.9% ROI bags of SUB tokens. This unreasonably optimistic thought process is flawed, and outright dumb.

In response to factual information about Substratum removing the team page from its website (an exceedingly stupid decision from CIO Abram Cookson), Wolfe resorted to personal attacks against me and William.

Let’s debunk Wolfe’s claims.

ICONLOOP has appointed James Kim, the Chairman and CEO of AMCHAM Korea (The American Chamber of Commerce in Korea), as its first company advisor.

ICONLOOP is making an all-out effort to become a more mature IT company this year as it marks the start of the blockchain’s full-fledged market entry.

Historically, ICONLOOP and ICON have maintained a conservative strategy when it comes to onboarding advisors. When advisory appointments do happen, it’s always significant in nature, and this case is no exception.
