According to Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao, scalability-related issues are currently curbing the mass adoption of crypto.
CZ is supporting new Visa rival
He’s supporting a blockchain startup that could very well rival Visa.
“The lack of valuable solutions and good user experiences of blockchain-based technologies are caused by its limited scalability possibilities which have been a major hurdle towards unlocking its significant adoption potential to date,” CZ said.
Zhao selected Celer Network which is a scalability solution as the next project for the company’s venture capital arm, Binance Launchpad.
CZ said that Celer Network could deal with these challenges “with the early demonstrations of its sustainable crypto economics construct and layer-2 blockchain architect powering it.”
The announcement also reveals that Celer can address some fundamental criticisms of blockchain technology.
These include being slow and sluggish and not ready for the prime time like Visa which is able to handle substantial transaction volumes.
