What is Marlin?

The Marlin network aims to deliver fast and reliable network infrastructure for individuals and businesses seeking to leverage decentralized blockchain networks, whether in DeFi or in web 3.0. One consistent issue with blockchain projects has been their habit of slowing down as they scale. Marlin’s plan is to resolve this with a suite of apps, overlays and network solutions they claim will cut latency and improve overall performance. According to Binance, POND is the network’s native utility token that’s used for making and voting governance decisions on the network, granting rewards to users for running validator nodes on the network, and determining who will audit the options and/or preferences of the network’s wider user pool before they are put to a vote.

Marlin (POND) is in the top 1,000 cryptocurrencies in the world by market cap, valued at $66,973,058. The current price of Marlin is $0.083251, which is -19.337% lower than yesterday.

What to consider when buying Marlin

As you can probably tell, the Marlin Network and POND are – in their use case at least – very much addressed to the technical side of the crypto world. It comes with some pedigree: The CEO was one of the key members of the team that built Zilliqa, which claims to be the very first blockchain to implement sharding on its network. Marlin’s core tools include solutions for low-latency one-to-many communications, a decentralized caching capability to accelerate high-demand requests from API feeds and data reservoirs, and a relay network for rapid exchange of large amounts of data. Here are a few things to think about:
  • If you know your IPFS from your libp2p, there is a lot of documentation on Marlin to sink your teeth into. Whether or not it can seriously shift blockchain’s perennial trilemma between speed, security and true decentralization remains to be seen, but even a cursory Google throws up a welter of material on Marlin’s plans to do it. However, could this important but unglamourous, and the lack of volatility needed to facilitate it, dent POND’s prospects as a trading coin?
  • Marlin is blockchain-agnostic – as you’d expect from a platform that’s meant to act, in part, as a bridge between distributed nodes in a peer-to-peer network.
  • You can’t buy POND with fiat, but it’s available at major exchanges including Binance, Huobi and Bibox.
  • POND is the utility token that can be traded outside the protocol and MPOND is the network token used within the platform. According to, at the time of writing (20 July 2021), POND offered annualized staking returns of 31.30%, with MPOND offering 10.27%

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Marlin, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of POND is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision.
