The project positions itself as an innovative start-up that should make the blockchain available to everyone. The company offers solutions for businesses (small and large enterprises). You know: business means money. So, is STRAT a good investment? Will its price go up?
Stratis Blockchain Platform
The Stratis platform allows enterprises and organizations to develop C# blockchain applications using the Microsoft NET Framework. The project team is ready to assist in determining the strategy for implementing blockchain solutions and applications in the business practice of each specific user.
On the platform, developers can quickly create nodes to test their applications. Moreover, users are offered nodes for Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitshares, if the developer suddenly wants to create an application specifically for one of the existing blockchains. At the same time, testing and launching applications are possible in the cloud, without the need to create your own networking. STRAT, Proof-of-Stake (POS) token with limited emission has become the basis for the functioning of the platform. The coin is presented on top exchanges: Binance, Bithumb, Bittrex, Upbit and some others.

In the last quarter of 2018, the Stratis team will not be bored. First, they will take part in various blockchain events, for example, BlockchainExpo, which will be held in Silicon Valley on November 29, 2018. Popularization of the blockchain technology and the project itself will also reach a new level along with the work of Stratis online academy.
Secondly, cefore the end of the year, the project should present its own sidechain. An updated version of the ICO platform will be launched. In the Stratis network, one will be able to create C # smart contracts. The good news for all STRAT holders will be the introduction of the Cold Staking protocol in December 2018.
Stratis Price Forecast 2018, 2019
Now this cryptocurrency is an interesting object for investment. Like Ethereum, Stratis is primarily a platform for creating different blockchain-based apps. Even Microsoft has become interested in these technologies, which can potentially have a positive impact on its price. We do not expect incredible growth, but we are sure that Stratis should return to its maximum that was shown in January 2018 (the peak of STRAT price was $20) but probably not till 2019.
A good list of activities and improvements related to Stratis is promising. In May 2018, it released alpha version of a platform of smart contracts based on STRAT. Moreover, it has ICO (Initial Coin Offering) Platform with “a highly customizable design” and a wide range of payment methods including cryptos and fiat money.
Nevertheless, the price of cryptocurrency has decreased on the background of the whole market decline. But we think that the coin will take back its positions, especially if the platform gains popularity as a base for ICO, and these ICOs are not scams.
In our opinion, the main stage of growth in the price of this cryptocurrency should be expected as early as in 2019, when all functions and new features of its blockchain will be available and can be evaluated by users.
Factors that will have a favorable impact on STRAT price:
- The project is functioning and developing.
- The team is making great efforts to popularize their product.
- Stratis is a business-oriented platform.
Factors that will might have an unfavorable impact on the coin’s value are as follows:
- General market trends.
- High competition.
