3 Coins Coinbase Will Adopt Next

Published

on

Coinbase

Coinbase is one of the largest and most popular cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. However, throughout its existence, it was very picky when it comes to which coin it will adopt. So much so, that it has become a very large achievement to get support by the exchange.

Recently, however, Coinbase has decided to act on its users’ wishes and expand its list of accepted coins. In theory, this was a big deal, and the exchange actually started looking into a lot of coins. However, it only adopted a few of them. Right now, Coinbase is supporting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, USD Coin, Basic Attention Token, and 0x.

Even so, Coinbase wishes to add more of them, but only after it ensured that the coins are a part of legitimate, non-controversial projects. As a result, the entire crypto community started speculating about which coins will be added next. This will also be something that we will try to answer today, by listing three projects that are the most probable candidates.

3. EOS

EOS or Ethereum On Steroids, as some like to call it, is a more than a decent project that has made headlines multiple times this year due to its progress. It managed to launch its own MainNet, which made it perfect for dApp development and smart contract creation. This makes it similar to ETH, but many would argue that it is better, faster, and cheaper. Considering that Coinbase seems to prefer Ethereum-like projects, experts think that there is a decent likelihood that EOS might be next to join Coinbase.

EOS aims to bring together all great features regarding smart contracts in a single platform and provide the best service for this aspect of crypto and blockchain technology.

2. Stellar (XLM)

Stellar has become one of the fastest, if not the fastest crypto project today. Its performance is excellent, while its goal is to provide individuals with instant cross-border payments. It is open-sourced, decentralized, and built on a belief that the community deserves a method to erase borders and boundaries even when it comes to sending money. It is a way of connecting individuals, payment systems, and even institutions, and bringing all of them to a single platform.

In addition, the project made headlines after partnering up with IBM, which brought a lot of attention to it, as well as new credibility. Simply put, this is one of the coins with a future, preferred by all that value speed and stability, which is why it is more than possible that Stellar will be the next project to gain Coinbase support.

1. XRP

XRP, formerly known as Ripple, is one of the most likely projects to reach Coinbase next, according to some experts. Others think differently, but this is still more than possible. While XRP has proven that it is quite a capable coin time and time again, it is also one surrounded in controversy. Even though it has been working hard to prove that it has nothing to hide, Coinbase is known for playing it safe.

However, XRP is also a coin that Coinbase would be able to benefit from a lot. It is a third largest crypto by market cap, it had two large price spikes in the last two months, and it managed to overthrow Ethereum at least 3 times during the same price surges. Many believe that XRP reaching Coinbase will be the final piece of the puzzle, one that will launch the coin on a bull run which will be larger and stronger than the one of late 2017. While we won’t know for sure until it happens, there is a high likelihood that Coinbase will choose this project to be the next one on its list.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

Published

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Published

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

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.

Mission Statement

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, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
