TechRound’s Top 37 Cryptocurrency Startups To Watch In 2022

 

1. Merkle Science

 

merkle-science-logo

 

Merkle Science is the next-generation predictive cryptocurrency risk and intelligence platform that aims to detect, investigate, and prevent illegal activities involving cryptocurrencies. 

We envision a world powered by crypto and through our innovative solutions, we are creating the infrastructure necessary to ensure the safe and healthy growth of the cryptocurrency industry as it becomes a key pillar of the $22 trillion financial services ecosystem. Together with my amazing team spread across London, Singapore, New York, and Bangalore, we support crypto businesses, financial institutions, regulators, and law enforcement agencies globally.

Among the many solutions we’ve built, our core platform is one we call COMPASS — COMPASS is a blockchain wallet and transaction monitoring system, designed to help businesses track in real-time, if their clients are sending them funds from sanctioned entities, darknet marketplaces, ransomware accounts to name a few.

Additionally, COMPASS leverages Merkle Science’s proprietary Behavioral Rule Engine to go beyond the blacklists and allow compliance teams to create customized alerts to detect potential money laundering and suspicious transaction behavior in order to meet their local KYC/AML compliance obligations.

Next, we have TRACKER — a forensics tool used by law enforcement, cybersecurity firms, and Financial Intelligence Units to investigate criminal use of cryptocurrency with the goal of identifying these bad actors. By leveraging on blockchain data, users can utilize TRACKER to trace in real-time, how criminals are collecting their illicit proceeds, where they are moving it to, in order to seize back these stolen assets and identify the parties behind the incident.

Last but not least, we have EXPLORER — an enterprise solution that combines on-chain and off-chain information in order to help businesses understand their counterparty risk, assist them with onboarding due diligence, and help financial institutions work with crypto businesses in a safe and compliant manner.

 

2. JustCarbon

 

just-carbon

 

JustCarbon is a blockchain-based carbon marketplace, where carbon emissions can be mitigated with the purchase of JustCarbon Removal tokens (JCR). One JCR token equates to exactly one tonne of carbon removed from the atmosphere, verified to the highest international standards. Buyers, consumers or wholesalers can retire, sell or purchase more JCRs, and most importantly offset their historic or future carbon impact.

This new and innovative platform is aiming to support a ‘just transition’ to a low carbon economy, democratise carbon markets and establish a transparent and effective nature-based carbon sequestration marketplace, a vital requirement in addressing global temperature rises.

Through this unique JustCarbon Removal Unit (JCR), the platform provides climate action project developers with a simple and accessible means of monetising their removal of CO2 from the atmosphere. JCRs will only be minted from the highest quality carbon credits that have been issued from nature-based projects within the last five years by Verra (VCS) or Gold Standard.

VCS credits must also have an add-on certification such as CCBA (climate, community & biodiversity accreditation). This filter will ensure that JCRs represent robust climate action, independently certified against the most recent accounting standards from the most respected bodies in the market.

The platform is administered by the JustCarbon DAO (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation), which is operated and controlled by the JustCarbon Governance token (JCG) holders, tokens being distributed over a 10 year period primarily for participation and use of the system.

This will democratise the carbon market with the DAO ensuring no single entity or vested interest group will own or control the platform. This separate token using blockchain technology, the JCG, will facilitate community voting and decision making, ensuring those with the greatest commitment to climate action have the greatest say in the platform’s direction.

Conscientious businesses concerned about their carbon footprint now have a simple, easy and accessible route to help tackle climate change. Once the amount of CO2 has been calculated, the equivalent tokens or JCRs can be purchased – 1 token equals 1 tonne of sequestered CO2.

Behind the platform is a team of collaborative co-founding industry and market experts from carbon markets, climate and impact finance, technology, and blockchain.

 

3. Creaticles

 

Creaticles

 

Creaticles is the world’s first NFT Requests Marketplace matching NFT buyers to its roster of verified global artists. The platform enables anyone, anywhere, to source custom NFTs through ‘Creaticles contests’, which leverage a traditional Request for Proposal (RFP) model, allowing users to submit an NFT idea request to Creaticles’ global pool of artists, who then have the chance to monetize their talents and design the requested NFT.

Once the user has chosen their preferred NFT, the winning artist can be remunerated in ETH, and soon, CRE8 – Creaticles’ native utility token. All NFTs purchased on the Creaticles platform will be transferable to all secondary marketplaces, opening the door for artists to increase their earnings with future sales of their art work.

Creaticles aims to bring the global artist community into the NFT space, and make NFTs the centerpiece of the Creator Economy, particularly as the sharp increase in demand for high quality NFT art shows no signs of slowing down.

Creaticles recently announced a strategic partnership with Esports platform FirstBlood to facilitate NFT rewards for Esports tournaments, and the company has successfully carried out NFT competitions for the likes of Axie Infinity, Harmony, MakerDAO, Polygon, Mask Network, and Pangolin. 

Creaticles has experienced explosive growth since its testnet launch in August 2021, and the company was selected in the list of the eight most promising projects in CoinList’s Seed batch for Fall 2021, out of a field of over 500 crypto projects.

Following Creaticles’ mainnet launch in November 2021, the company raised $3.8 million USD in IDO on SushiSwap (MISO), bolstering its recruitment efforts and marketing activities. CRE8, its native utility token, has been listed on Sushiswap, Gate.io and MEXC, with more exchange listings earmarked for Q2 and Q3 of this year, along with Creaticles’ multi-chain expansion plans.

dust_logo

 

The Dust Project is a first-of-its-kind documentary project that collects and uses household dust samples from homes around the world, to build an archive and launch it into space as a future archeological artifact.

Comprising an assortment of DNA particles, fibers, crumbs, chemicals and fungus, household dust contains detailed information about life in our homes and the surrounding – family structure, animals, clothes, foods, and diverse materials from outside.

This dust depicts the whole microcosmos of life happening inside the house and tells the story of our habits, diet and general life in our current time and place. After collecting the dust samples from homes around the world, the Dust project will place them all into a Dust ark, arranged according to residential areas.

The ark, comprising the collection of dust samples, functioning as a time capsule, will be launched into orbit in space to be preserved and used as a future archeological discovery, documenting human life and behavior.

The project is utilizing an NFT-based strategy and will create a collection of 30-thousand NFTs as a ‘purchase ticket’ for private tests. Each of these NFTs will be linked to a dust sample with an identifying serial number. The idea is that the holder of the NFT Will keep their place in the box and allow for the documentation of a million. They will receive a sample box to their home to collect their household dust and get a ‘ticket’ for it to be included aboard the Ark.

 

9. Lending Block

 

LendingBlock-Logo

 

Lendingblock is a cryptocurrency lending and borrowing platform for retail investors. Users can deposit their idle cryptocurrencies to earn impressive interest rates not seen in traditional finance. Depending on the length of the loan, users can earn up to 12% per year on their deposits.

Participants are also able to use their cryptocurrency as collateral to secure stablecoin dollar-backed loans at reasonable interest rates, allowing them to unlock value from their crypto assets without the need to sell.

Lendingblock was founded by Wall Street tech veteran Steve Swain in late 2017. The company was initially funded by a $10m Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in April 2018 and subsequently regulated by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission in 2019.

Unlike savings accounts in traditional finance, blockchain wallets don’t pay any interest on deposits. Lendingblock allows users to earn substantial passive returns on their crypto in a safe and secure way.

Every month, the company pays its active users a Lendingblock (LND) token airdrop reward based on their share of the total monthly platform activity. Depending on the user’s activity, this airdrop can be very lucrative indeed, as seen in the first airdrop reward for October’s activity, where platform borrowers were paid 1,323% APY in LND tokens, effectively meaning that Borrowers were paid to borrow!

Lendingblock’s achievements so far include:

  • Over $5m of customer deposits in under 2 months of launch
  • 34% average week-on-week growth rate of new deposits
  • 7% average week-on-week growth rate of new user sign-ups

Lendingblock has big plans for 2022, where they expect to offer a greater variety of cryptocurrencies to their lending and borrowing product, flexible loan terms, develop an Android and iOS app, and launch a crypto buy/sell exchange.

Building on DCG’s 7-year track record in early stage crypto investing, Luno Expeditions will now spearhead all of DCG’s early stage investing (seed and pre-seed).  The dedicated team will scale up investments (targeting 200-300 per year) and expand the focus beyond crypto into the broader fintech space, globally.

11. Wunder Trading

 

wundertrading

 

WunderTrading is an automated crypto trading platform – like eToro for crypto, but on steroids.

The platform lets you buy and sell crypto from over 15 exchanges, and is about to launch US-based exchanges – thus bringing WunderTrading to an entirely new continent.

The platform provides you with an advanced, smart trading terminal to view and manage your investments. But the real magic lies in the automation. You can set up copy-trading to make the same transactions as a crypto trader of your choice. That way, you can do the same things as experienced and professional traders, and passively make money off of their expertise.

You can also set up crypto bots.  The bots automatically implement your defined trading strategy, and they send recommendations to buy and sell. This lets you automatically grow your portfolio based on your predefined criteria, without having to do the manual work.

The startup was founded in 2018 in Latvia by Kirill Osaulenko (PhD In Strategic Management – UCL) and Jevgenijs Latiševs (MSc Finance and Investments – Nottingham University), and has over 43k users, 8k bots, and $350M+ monthly turnover volume.

 

12. Seed-On

 

seed-on-logo

 

SeedOn’s platform provides users with safe investments by meticulously screening every project, and eliminating the ones that can be potentially fraudulent. Collected funds are released to projects in stages, so that if a project is discovered to be faulty, SeedOn can still return the investments from the pool.

Since the crowdfunding process is prone to scams and regulatory breaches, many platforms aim to combat these fragilities but have failed to provide investors with the security they need. SeedOn’s Smart Contract Escrow Model’s blockchain solution runs on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), which provides transparency as stakeholders can follow the fund’s movements throughout the deal.

To participate in a SeedOn crowdfunding campaign, investors simply purchase SEON, SeedOn’s native token, on public exchanges to then deposit into the platform’s wallet. Users can also pay with FIAT either directly on SeedOn, which is then converted to SEON on the platform’s backend, offering a viable option to non-crypto holders.

SeedOn offered two pre-sales, one private and one public, during SEON’s ICO in December of 2021, collectively raising $1.4 million and selling out the second presale in under five hours. The company’s token sale was offered on 3 exchanges (BitMart, PancakeSwap, and Digifinex) and sold 120,000,000 tokens worth $1.2 million.

SeedOn plans to launch its platform in the upcoming months, offering an upgraded and secure space for investors and projects founders to connect. This start-up will be replacing the likes of Kickstarter and Gofundme, and you should keep SeedOn on your lookout!

*Income  – managing disbursements, including Universal/Guaranteed Basic Income
*Stats – understand how money is being spent from consumer price activity
*Contests – elect judges and reward teams for solving community problems
*Fundraising – raising money with multiple rounds and bonus structures
*Escrow – off-chain transactions and alternatives for reputation and trust
*Control – let multiple parties collectively manage an account and its actions
*Reserves – let communities hold and exchange monetary reserves reliably on-chain
*Voting – secure elections to democratically govern any community

Many of our solutions combine new developments from multiple disciplines: law/regulations, technology/cryptography, and economics/ sociology to help communities make decisions democratically and have trust in their elections.

These applications can be combined like LEGO blocks in any order to be used effectively in collaboration between current governmental infrastructures to connect with businesses and civil society.
With the contribution of 𝗜𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗼𝗶𝗻’s technologies and the global collaboration of organisations, we can make an impact to transform economic systems with the advancements of local businesses to influence the delivery of SDGs at all levels.

Sabre56 logo

 

The mining business supporting the crypto industry has continued to be a true ‘Wild West’ even though it has been a decade.

Mining data centres have sprouted across the globe in the most exotic places – next to Chinese Hydroelectrical dams, in Scandinavian Mountain caves, or stranded gas sites in the Texan countryside to coal generation plants in the Midwest. However, with the industry maturing, mining pioneers need to vet their business plans in a scaling and increasingly competitive environment.

Sabre56 has emerged as crypto mining’s own McKinsey – a management consultant fully dedicated to the crypto mining industry. The company’s management comprises crypto veterans providing comprehensive services to purge inefficiencies from mining projects – reducing risks, securing procurement, overseeing construction, and managing operations. In short, making miners much more efficient and reducing their risk. The company offers turnkey delivery services in an industry still far from standardized.

With offices in Canada, the US, and Dubai, Sabre56 manages just over 1 GW of computing power for some of the biggest industry names globally – operating in North America, South America, the Nordic countries, and the Middle East. The company acts as a pacesetter and benchmark for the mining industry and has set new professional standards in mining project execution.

The Sabre56’s founders were early pioneers, starting their career in crypto in 2014, having backgrounds in the British Special Forces. Their vision for Sabre56 was to unite a unique skill set – comprising commercial, technical, operational, and engineering – and offer digital asset companies previously unavailable solutions packages.

Sabre56 has a shaping impact on how mining business is conducted, which directly affects the backbone of the growing crypto economy, all of which is a trend to watch in 2022.

16. xG

 

xG

 

xG is a new crypto-sports platform that rewards grass-roots sports players with NFTs and the xG utility token for their in-real-life achievements.

You can think of xG as a collecting experience for athletes – like NBA Top Shot – but for your own performance-related moments – with a collecting journey unfolding alongside your in-real-life football activity.

It’s our mission to encourage grassroots sports participation by onboarding millions of sports people into web3. Sedentary lifestyles are a problem. Governments and sports organisations want to incentivise participation – but existing methods of rewarding and incentivising activity are limited, like certificates (!) seem out of date.

Increasingly we’re all expressing ourselves digitally in new and inventive ways. The xG Rewards we’re creating will enable us to convey our digital identity and flex our athletic status based on our IRL achievements. xG opens up a gamified web3 journey that compliments our sporting activity with a new way to show off our personal wins, to collect milestones and unlock experiences in the metaverse.

We’re building on Flow, have ex Man City player Nedum Onuoha and crypto-OG Sillytuna on the board of advisors and just hired the team behind the Adidas x Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collab to design xG NFTs.

It’s crypto-sports for social good. Play to Earn…In Real LIfe.

 

17. Silta Finance

 

Silta-logo-color

 

For the sake of our planet, we need to change our ways, and we need to do it now.  Infrastructure funding has to be steered towards projects for good and away from those that harm the environment. The time for responsible financing has come. The Silta DAO has the ability to provide access to funding in DeFi and to change the world.

Silta does two things: credit assessment (resulting in a Silta Score) and underwriting (on-chain collateral for third-party loan pools). Completing these steps enables physical infrastructure developers with a strong ESG impact to access crypto-based loans.

In the assessment of the Silta Score, each project is evaluated for financial viability and its sustainability impact. The scoring process is based on industry standards, but optimised for small infrastructure projects valued at 100M USD or less. To ensure sufficient emphasis on sustainability, Silta is developing a bespoke performance-based monitoring framework as part of due diligence.

The final approval of a collateral application rests with the Silta community. As a part of governance, the Silta DAO elects an investment committee of industry experts. Once a project has been assigned a score, the investment committee reviews the project and decides whether to approve the application.

Approved applications progress to the underwriting stage. Silta connects borrowers with third party DeFi protocols such as our partner Rari Capital.  By underwriting loans and providing on-chain collateral, Silta unlocks the DeFi ecosystem and the secondary market for impact investors.

There are a number of advantages in the Silta solution. For impact-conscious infrastructure developers, Silta facilitates a simpler and cheaper way to access funding. For investors, Silta opens up the huge global market of physical infrastructure. With steady interest rates in this asset class, Silta helps balance crypto investors portfolios with new products largely immune to crypto winters.

 

18. DigitalBits

Hyprr the web 3 social media platform expands with multi-chain strategy commencing with the DigitalBits Blockchain. Hyprr has announced that the Hyprr web 3 social media platform is expanding beyond their native blockchain (built on Cosmos) and will support multi-chain interoperability.

The company has kicked off this expansion starting with DigitalBits, a blockchain attracting revolutionary brands, enabling digital experiences and enhanced connections for consumers and brands.

The “blockchain for brands’, will now be optimised with a social landing hub for digital interactions on Hyprr’s fully integrated multi-layered platform.

The DigitalBits ecosystem will experience the broad social NFT functionality & utility Hyprr offers through in-app social posts, premium content & exclusive live streams. In addition, the Hyprr platform enables split contracts for digital assets on both initial sales and royalties. This function paves the way for charitable donations, collaborations and fundraising projects.

In recent months, the world has seen new partnerships with leading brands enter the DigitalBits ecosystem such as Inter Milan, AS Roma and Sony Pictures Italia, enabling the DigitalBits blockchain to rapidly expand its reach across the sporting and entertainment sectors.

This DigitalBits integration provides the Hyprr platform with a new level of brand to consumer relationships by building trust and confidence through first-hand engagement and interaction with fans.

In the current format, social media users provide web 2 platforms with large amounts of free content – forgoing ownership in the process. Web 2 architecture monopolises the advertising revenue of creator-built audiences, whilst providing no direct financial value to creators or consumers.

Contributors to social platforms spend significant time building audiences yet rely on external affiliate partnerships and e-commerce sites to monetize their work.

Hyprr, a web 3 social platform invites users to “Swap likes for Hypes”, operating on the “Create, Earn, Own” principle, encouraging creators to earn from their content, build their community & utilise it’s innovative NFT functionality. Hyprr is a contributor centric platform, that facilitates the distribution of content and sale/resale of digital assets all under one roof.

37. MercuryWallet

 

mercurywallet-logo

Mercury is a Bitcoin layer-2 scaling technology that runs on a newly developed concept called statechains. It enables private keys for BTC deposits (UTXOs) to be transferred securely between parties without an on-chain transaction at the base layer.

Through this function, users can transfer full Bitcoin custody to anyone instantly, with increased privacy and without attracting miners’ fees.

All of this is possible due to statechains, which the firm describes as a “cryptographic structure” made up of a chain of digital signatures that transfer token ownership of a specific statecoin across different owners.

Like a blockchain, the statechain provides immutable cryptographic proof of ownership and integrates fraud fail-safes to avoid double-spending.

Facilitating this process is the use of a “statecoin. ” A statecoin corresponds to a particular amount of Bitcoin deposited to an address with the private key split between the depositor and a Mercury server.

The depositor holds a time-locked “backup transaction,” giving them the right to claim control of the coin after a set time lock period. The private key of the statecoin is not known by any party, and the owner and statechain entity must both sign a transaction to release it
