Nic Carter, a partner at Castle Island Ventures and co-founder of Coin Metrics, created a matrix chart for some of the crypto-sphere’s most talked about innovations. The chart ranked Bitcoin, blockchain protocols, Libra, and other innovations by maturity relative to hype, showing there is still unrecognized potential in many parts of the industry.

While some of the most innovative and ground-breaking developments often go unnoticed, a few outliers seem to get most of the attention. This dynamic emphasizes that media coverage does not reflect the potential value of an innovation.
