bloXroute (BLXR) Blockchain Protocol - ICO Review, Rating and Details of bloXroute ICO (Token Sale) - Rating: Watch

bloXroute is the first Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN), which increases a blockchain’s on-chain throughput by more than three orders of magnitude via an effective broadcast primitive, without affecting a blockchain’s functionality and the balance of power among current system participants. Further, due to the fast underlying network, this throughput increase can be easily realized by tweaking the block size and block time interval. This is achieved via a provably neutral network design as the first-order priority for bloXroute.
