With the recent surge of Bitcoin in the last few weeks, many traders are hoping for a more profitable year than 2018. Even if that comes to fruition, my advice over the past year remains the same. Traders must look for companies and projects that offer blockchain solutions with real-world use and complete transparency. One company that meets both of those requirements is Luxcore (LUX).
What is Luxcore?
Luxcore is a blockchain solutions and services ecosystem that focuses on developing security and privacy products. The Luxcore platform utilizes the PHI2 algorithm powered blockchain to build a wide variety of product offerings. One of the platform’s primary goals is to help close the gap between regular consumers and enterprise users by introducing specific use-cases for each group of users.
Exciting Roadmap for 2019
As mentioned earlier, one of the absolute requirements of building a successful blockchain project is to be fully and completely transparent. Luxcore certainly meets that requirement with the introduction of their most recent roadmap.
The roadmap does a great job of showing which projects are in development, how far along each project is, and the expected completion date of each project. With this, LUX traders and potentially interested consumers can follow along and monitor the status of projects that they are especially interested in.
Since many crypto projects have inevitably disappointed the market, offering a fully transparent roadmap is an important step in rebuilding that trust. Luxcore is certainly headed in the right direction.
Revenue Generating Projects
There is no doubt that 2017 created a cryptocurrency frenzy which saw many new companies and projects attempt to enter the space. And while more competition is good, many of these projects simply haven’t panned out the way enthusiasts would have hoped. As we move ahead, only the best will survive. That’s why it’s imperative that blockchain based projects focus on developing solutions that will generate revenue. And then market those solutions to enterprises as opposed to worrying about whether crypto traders will be interested. Luxcore is doing just that.
Although the company has many exciting projects in the queue, the three that have big potential are:
- LuxGate – Peer-to-peer cross-blockchain platform. Alpha release expected in Q2.
- Parallel Masternode Network – Decentralized File Storage system built on Luxcore’s original and unique Parallel Masternode Network. It’s important to note that this development represents an additional on-chain layer which will allow for future development of additional products and services. Beta test is expected in Q2.
- Proof of Stake (PoS) Web and Mobile Wallets – Luxcore already launched the first-of-its-kind staking web wallet. In addition, the company recently released their unique PoS mobile wallet for Android and iOS. By the end of June, Luxcore plans to update both the web and mobile versions of the wallet to support an on-chain token management feature. Once the update and legal agreements are completed, Luxcore will begin to license the combined staking web and mobile wallet solution.
Optimization of Smart Contracts
In addition to LuxGate and the Parallel Masternode Network, the company’s effort to optimize its smart contract system should pay huge dividends in the future. Although smart contracts are already enabled on the Luxcore blockchain, the company is working on the system in an effort to improve transaction processing speed (TPS). TPS is a big deal and is one of the primary criticisms of Bitcoin (BTC), that it simply can’t go mainstream until it gets faster.
Luxcore will be able to double the processing speed by implementing Proof of Work and PoS hashing functions.
Transparency, transparency, transparency. Luxcore has laid out a detailed roadmap listing all the projects, progress, and expected completion dates in 2019. Enterprise users and crypto enthusiasts will be able to monitor the company’s progress as it begins the journey toward becoming a transformative, industry-leading, revenue generating, blockchain solution provider.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?
The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.
