A Call for All the Programmers On JavaScript

This is a call to all the miserable programmers out there. You have been heard. Someone somewhere was thoughtful enough to make a cryptocurrency for you.

Meet JavaScript Token.

A token that aspires to form a community of JavaScript programmers, with a platform where people can create and develop different software, APIs, libraries and light wallets on a free basis with JavaScript Token as a currency.

Not only this, JS also has plans for smart-contracts, virtual machine, mining in the browser and implementing JSChain tokens in advertisement and other virtual values on web applications market that are using JavaScript, which is the most popular programming language and allows access to the largest sales market in history. 

In short: An attempt to unite the divided blockchain into one extensible, easy-to-interact-with blockchain system.

Most of the people wouldn’t have heard this name before. Not many of the investors did. How could they? It ranks at number 1456 out of 2000 on the CoinMarketCap list. For now.

Until today.

What changed today you might ask?

Here. See for yourself.

Notice the big fat number in green? It is the calculated percentage change. What it means is that JavaScript token saw a percentage change of 727% as of today. A positive change.

Here’s the graph if you’re not dazzled by the long jumps JS has made today.

Not bad for a relatively young currency. Who knows it might ‘blow up’ — not literally.

JavaScript, an ERC-20 token with the total supply of 7,991,996 JS, is currently available at EtherDelta, while you can see token smart-contract on Etherscan.

JS’s whitepaper also included a roadmap for JS which is given below:

  • Website by the end of Q4, 2017
  • JavaScript chain testnet and development by Q1, 2018
  • Decentralized blockchain and mining in browser by Q2, 2018
  • Implementing the best practices by Q3, 2018
  • Sharding, beta release of the merchant API, web app & mobile app by Q4, 2018
  • Virtual machine by Q1, 2019
  • Smart-contracts on JavaScript chain by Q2, 2019
  • Scaling performance and global integration in Q3-Q4 2019

But there’s this silence from the developers that is probably what is keeping this project from rising up. The stats for public interactions are almost zero.

Reddit account: 0 posts.
Github real-time source code programming: Nothing since January.
BTCtalk: Only roadmaps and hardly any activity.

The last effort was the airdrop announcement of 7,000,000 JS to all members — a distribution of a cryptocurrency token, for free, to a large number of wallet addresses. Basically a way of gaining attention and new followers, resulting in a larger user-base and a wider disbursement of the coin.

That’s it from JavaScript. Is this the next ‘something’ in the crypto world? We’ll have to wait and see what comes next.
