Aeron (ARN) caught air on some good news this weekend, soaring over 50% in a 24 hour period. Achieving a price of nearly US $.64 at its peak, this little-known altcoin led the fleet of cryptocurrencies available on Binance, showing the highest positive 24-hour percentage change on October 6th.
Ranking in at number 404 on coinmarketcap.com, you can forgive yourself for not knowing much (or anything) about this platform for improving flight safety. If you happen to be one of their lucky hodlers, however, you are likely flying high on the news of your investment finally getting off the ground.
With a circulating supply of 13 million coins, and a total market cap of US $7.7 Million, Aeron (ARN) shows a total trading volume of nearly US$17 Million in the past 24 hour period.
But what is Aeron (ARN)?
Quite simply, Aeron (ARN) is blockchain for aviation safety. While flying is generally considered among the safest ways to travel, there are still over 3,000 accidents in the industry each year, putting countless numbers of lives at risk.
Over 2 Million people fly each day on over 100,000 flights globally. Whether for business or pleasure, flying has become an indispensable mode of travel for the world’s population. The need for increased safety is paramount to the industry. And Aeron believes it has a solution to the largest factor creating in-flight accidents.
Flight records have historically been manipulated for various reasons. Forged logs can give a pilot an illusion of experience, or save maintenance costs on planes and equipment in need of service. This manipulation creates a bigger problem than you may think, and until now, there has been no easy remedy to this long-standing problem.
With Aeron (ARN) and blockchain technology, distortion or forgery of log data along with data loss, are eliminated. Pilots, maintenance organizations and fixed base operators can log their verifiable information onto blockchain. Transparent information is easily communicated to authorities and safety is improved.
So what caused the dramatic rise in price?
An important roadmap milestone was reached over the past day(s) involving Aeron’s (ARN) Aviation Authority portal development. After intensive discussions with aviation authorities in the European Union, electronic logbooks were established as a recognized tool for the industry. While paper logs are still deemed necessary, EASA/FAA compliant blockchain log entries as published by the Aeron (ARN) team were well received and found complete.
As a result of these discussions, the Aviation Authority portal (a company effort to balance privacy with permission access to flight records) is now under development. This important milestone marks another achievement of the Aeron (ARN) team, in line with the company’s ambitious roadmap.
The Sky is the limit.
Aeron (ARN) can be found on a number of exchanges, including Binance, Gate.io, KuCoin, and others. The ARN token is supported by an equal number of multi-asset wallets. You can join their communities on Twitter, Reddit, Telegraph, Facebook and more.
With confidence renewed, Aeron (ARN) has found the lift necessary to get their little plane off the ground. And with fair skies projected for the remainder of the flight, investors are free to unfasten their belts and roam around the cabin. While investors should take note of their exits and mind the instructions offered preflight by the steward/stewardess, the view from the little windows on this airborne altcoin must be spectacular from these heights… and the sky, as they say, is the limit.

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,…

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.
