Wilson also suggested that a mining software project named Filecoin, which was also regarded as one the “next-gen” contract platforms, is likely to compete with Ethereum.

As per Wilson, the stablecoins are likely to witness significant progress this year. The customers are very likely to adopt them along with cryptogaming, a non-fungible token. He additionally stated – “The area I am most concerned about are actions brought by misguided regulators who will take aim at high-quality projects and harm them. And we will continue to see all sorts of failures, from scams, hacks, failed projects, and losing investments be a drag on the sector.”

Wilson also believes that the current U.S President Donald J. Trump will be removed from the White House by this year-end after Robert Mueller, FBI Director issued a report that brings out a history of activities performed by Trump, which was rendered to be illegal.
