With the market booming with a variety of blockchain projects, cryptocurrency has become all the rage in the recent times. Given the tremendous surge of crypto projects, the technology has been appropriated in almost all the major industries. Speaking of blockchain innovations, one of the latest trends in the crypto market is the decentralization of social media. While many eminent projects have been experimenting with decentralization of social media platforms, Mithril attempts to bring something new by tokenizing content.

The proof of work algorithm, which was introduced by Bitcoin, has been successfully replaced by more advanced algorithms in the recent times, each promising to deliver high-end security features to the users. In this regard, Mithril can be regarded as an absolute game-changer. As a next-generation blockchain platform, Mithril rewards users who develop content. Interestingly, users can earn Mithril tokens while socializing with others, regardless of whether they are a social media celebrity or an important influencer. If you are missing out on the developments on the Mithril Blockchain, here’s a brief insight into the blockchain network.

Mithril, a Currency on the Rise

While Bitcoin and Ethereum are the big names in the market, there has been a subsequent surge in altcoins, which aim to eliminate the critical challenges in the existing currencies, from scalability to faster transactions. Considering the goals of this mammoth blockchain project, it is not hard to imagine Mithril as the next-generation of decentralized applications. Prioritising the seamless integration of the blockchain into existing social media platforms, Mithril anticipates becoming the most optimized blockchain for social media applications. As a part of the expansion plan, Mithril team is working on important partnerships. Besides this, the team has created a Mithril Integration Protocol, enabling seamless integration between the Mithril network and social networks.

Mithril and Social Mining

The concept of “social mining” is unique to this blockchain, allowing users to mine currencies while interacting with others within the Mithril ecosystem. As per the algorithms, the users will be rewarded with MITH tokens for sharing unique content. Going by the burgeoning popularity of decentralization of social networks, one can imagine Mithril breaking barriers to become one of the leading blockchain projects of all times.

The amount of MITH that can be earned by users will directly depend on the algorithm, besides the number of stories posted, the number of views, likes, etc. Depending on preset calculations, a certain amount of MITH is allotted for a definite time span, which will be distributed to miners based on the mining algorithm.

Lit, an Important Component of Mithril

Available in the beta version of Mithril, Lit is one of the key elements of the platform. The Mithril team developed Lit to cater to the requirements of the tech-savvy generation which are at once interested in cryptocurrency and the social media. This dynamic app is responsible for finding new contacts, stories, and instant messaging functions. With the agenda of monetizing personal content, Lit is designed for seamless integration into almost all notable social media channels. Just like any other digital platforms, Mithril allows users to share stories, which disappear after 24 hours. The stories can range from posts, videos, slides to photos, and the rewards are given in the form of Mithril tokens. The Lit Chatroom, which has generated quite a buzz among the users, lets users manage personal information including stories and a separate Lit Public Profile.

Mithril and the Market

Since MITH is based on ERC-20 tokens, the coins can be kept in any standard Ethereum wallet supporting ERC-20 tokens. If you haven’t observed the performance of the Mithril currency, you will be surprised to know that it’s rapidly gaining momentum in the market and the price is moving up exponentially. After a remarkable bull run in March, the coin has witnessed a temporary setback recently, wherein the price dropped by a great margin. Considering the last few days’ price movements of Mithril, the price of MITH crashed by a striking $0.016493644 or -3.73% on June 17. However, the price climbed back to $0.449371611 on June 18. As per the analysts, the price of MITH is going to touch $0.482275287 price level soon. For June 17-18, the highest and the lowest value of MITH were tantamount to $0.482275287 and $0.407995731 respectively. As of June 19, 2018, the price of MITH stands at $0.458356, dropping by 2.26% from its previous position. Ranking 76 by market capitalization, Mithril boasts a trading volume of $36,937,900 USD at the time of writing.

Final Thoughts

As a decentralized social media platform based on Ethereum Blockchain, Mithril has been designed for integration into various kinds of social media networks, rewarding content developers for their contributions. Regulated by the unique protocol called “social mining”, the Mithril network specializes in data storage recording transactions in a secure and immutable manner. Looking at the significant developments on the blockchain, which include listing on BitForex and BitPro and the launch of improved features for iOS devices, the popularity of the project makes perfect sense. Besides this, the launch of the most hyped-up application, Lit, has also helped the coin reach out to a wider audience. Now that the coin is rapidly gaining recognition across the community, it might just outpace its competitors to make it to the list of the most promising currencies in the crypto space.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
