COTI has just published an impressive review of 2018's achievements. They've launched products (Trustchain protocol AlphaNet ); came first in several competitions and rankings (top place at the Google-sponsored Pick a Startup competition, well, that's something worth mentioning!) and got into some meaningful partnership around the globe. These guys stick to their road map so far and I am really looking forward to the release of the main net in 2019!

The COTI business whitepaper mentions mitigating the volatility risk with put options and other hedging mechanisms. It is possible, but generates extra transaction costs (merchants will have to buy the options). And it requires having a big enough market to have the counterparty to the hedge (someone who wants the sell the options). This is a chicken and an egg problem: you need a stable price to have the mass market adoption, and a mass market adoption to stabilize the price. This will not work. Every currency designed specifically for payments needs be a stable coin pegged to a fiat currency.
