  • Casper is one of the fastest-growing blockchain projects that looks to solve the trilemma by implementing a unique “correct-by-construction” mechanism.

Project Review

Casper is a decentralized layer-one proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain that aims to solve the blockchain trilemma of scalability, security, and decentralization by implementing its unique consensus mechanism called ‘Correct-by-Construction.’

The network is designed to accelerate enterprise and developer adoption of blockchain through the use of WebAssembly (WASM), which allows developers to easily build bridges from their existing systems to blockchain applications using traditional coding languages.

Casper gives developers the option to change smart contracts deployed on the chain to new agreements made by the parties involved, allowing businesses or enterprises the flexibility to add new features or remove any bugs from the on-chain code.

CSPR is the native token of the Casper chain, which has been designed to accelerate developer adoption of blockchain technology.

Recent Developments

Casper’s surge in popularity is hinged on the project being one of the fastest-developing blockchain networks. In September, Casper announced the launch of over 140 (and counting) projects, exchanges, partners, NFTs, and Web3 applications.

The Casper NFT standard, CEP-78, provides superior scalability, support, and efficient tools for managing, owning, and trading NFTs. Casper NFTs have upgrade patterns with improved mutability of on-chain metadata.

On October 6th, Casper announced the launch of staking on the Uphold wallet. Staking with Uphold allows holders of CSPR to earn an annual product yield (APY) of 9.25% APY, one of the highest rates around.

Another benefit of staking CSPR with the Uphold wallet is the 0% commission rate charged, passing 100% of rewards directly to CSPR Stakers. After weeks of development, Casper has also deployed a new online hub on the Casper Network.

The team has also announced an update to the circulating supply of CSPR. According to the update, the Casper circulating supply (now 10.4 billion CSPR) reports all tokens that are unlocked and transferrable.

Price Updates

All the while cryptocurrency prices have been in the red with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and other altcoins falling, Casper (CSPR) has been rallying, drawing the attention of investors in the crypto space.

Casper is up by 8% over the last 24 hours and is the biggest gainer in the crypto market on October 7th. In the last week, the price of CSPR has risen by 18.6% and more than 36% in the last month, making it the second-best performing crypto through the bearish market.

The strong performance has seen the price of Casper (CSPR) rise from $0.026 to as high as $0.03772, which is close to its 3-month high. The rally has also pushed Casper into the top 100 ranked cryptos. Casper is now ranked 93rd, with a market cap of $367 million.

Future Events

The Casper Team recently announced that its developers are working on a new generation of the Casper Signer. While details were few, the team noted that the update will come with several features updates, including an on-chain wallet, multi-platform, and multi-browser.

The team is also developing a Casper Membership Portal, which aims to make the Casper Network more transparent and trustworthy. The portal will also give members access to unique privileges and rewards.

In addition, validators will be able to participate in votes and the governance of the Casper Association through the portal. The Membership Portal is said to be in the final stages of development.

On the Flipside

  • Despite being built with some of the most advanced smart contract technology, Casper is yet to enjoy the adoption of more prominent chains like Ethereum, Solana, Binance Smart Chain, or Avalanche.

Community

As one of the fastest-growing projects, the Casper community is also growing at a quick rate. Not only is the community growing at a blisteringly fast pace, but they are also strong believers in the prospects of Casper.

Comparing Casper to other projects, crypto trader Jamil Kayz maintained high praise for the project. Kayz wrote:

Bullish about the prospects of Casper, Eugenius wrote on Twitter:

Another user, @niftyinvest shared his opinions about CSPR, writing:

Why You Should Care

Casper has one of the highest prospects among crypto projects. The smart contracts technology of Casper has the potential to change the way projects are coded and allow developers to build on their blockchain using any computer language. This drastically increases the potential use cases for the Casper blockchain.
