Jeff Garzik, one of a handful of key developers who helped build the underlying software for bitcoin that is known as blockchain, has seen its shortcomings firsthand. So he decided to create a better digital currency.

He’s calling it Metronome and says it will be the first that can jump between different blockchains. For example, coins that are used for applications on the Ethereum blockchain will be able to move to Ethereum Classic before jumping onto Qtum or Rootstock, which connects with the bitcoin blockchain, said Garzik.

The mobility means that if one blockchain dies out as the result of infighting among developers or slackened use, metronome owners can move their holdings elsewhere. That should help the coins retain value, and ensure their longevity, Garzik, co-founder of startup Bloq that created metronome, said in a phone interview.

That’s a concern for many digital currencies. Infighting among developers and various supporters, and the slow pace of enhancements on the bitcoin blockchain have helped to limit use. Both bitcoin and its main rival, ethereum, have split into several versions.

So they will act as an exchange inside of a coin, if they can really do this then it is so good but I don't think that it can surpasses what Bitcoin already made in its 8 years of existence. Most of the altcoins that has been created have a sole purpose of competing and even claiming to be greater with Bitcoin but no other cryptocurrency until this day that made their promises. If developers of new coins can adapt to what something new and great so as Bitcoin too.

I will not judge this coin as I still have no clue how this work and will only support it if this coin deserved. Metronome might be better than any coin even with bitcoin if we believe in the developer words but does it really meant for change. I don’t think so, because investors will stick to bitcoin for a mean reason that Metronome doesn’t  have, Bitcoin stands the test of time and still on top.

I am actually taking note of this development as this coming coin is being introduced by a man who knows Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in and out. Hoping there can also be an ICO for this one as I am so willing to invest some little money to have a small slice of the Metronome pie.

The concept is really good and its main feature can be what we are looking for. I have seen some coins or tokens which have died their own natural death and if those can be integrated in Metronome (I hope this is quite possible) then it can be good news for all of us coin enthusiasts.

Right now, we are witnessing so many ICO projects introductions and most of them can just be laughable in terms of concepts, dev team and roadmaps...no wonder some people are just calling many of these ICOs as 'shitcoins" which may die after some months of pumps and dumps in the exchanges. A project as refreshing as Metronome is what we need.

Garzik is one of the assholes that deliberately launched coins/projects to interfere with Bitcoin.

He also supports coin tracking, so the authorities can have a full dossier of whatever coin he produces.

I wouldn't trust this snake in the grass as far as I could spit.

jeff garzik has proven himself to be many things, mainly incompetent, malicious and disruptive.

he tried to push the segwit2x thing. when a few people did run it after the majority rightfully ignored it, it broke immediately.

then he did the united shitcoin fork that intentionally deprived as many people as possible of their coins and privacy.

it amazes me that this guy has the balls to show his face in anything crypto related now. he's totally screwed himself and us along the way.
