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.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
