Following the recent Coinbase announcement regarding the new listing of 0x, a lot of investors started speculating which cryptocurrency might be next. While Coinbase has announced reviewing several altcoins throughout 2018, it appears that most experts believe that BAT coin might be the one that this exchange will support next.

Basic Attention Token, also known as BAT coin, is an open-source, decentralized project created on Ethereum’s network. Its platform is also known for its integration with the web browser called Brave.

As an ERC20 token, BAT coin is among the coin that Coinbase seems to be interested in, which is what qualifies it for the listing. As a result of speculation, BAT has seen a significant price surge in the last 24 hours. The coin grew by as much as 12%, which made it even more interesting to investors, considering that the majority of other altcoins are currently trading in the red.

At the time of writing, the value BAT coin is $0.204778 per unit, with the coin being ranked as 44th on CoinMarketCap. The gains have made BAT attract additional attention, although there is still no confirmation that Coinbase will actually introduce this coin to its platform.

Even so, a lot of investors remain hopeful that this might be the case, as the recent listing of 0x indicates that Coinbase is finally ready to expand its token list. Furthermore, the exchange made it clear some time ago that they have an interest in ERC20 tokens. After 0x integration, it became clear that this interest is genuine.

Will the value of BAT grow or drop?

At the moment, the crypto community seems to be excited by the possibility of listing.

If Coinbase decides to add support for BAT, investors expect that the current price surge will grow by several times, launching the coin’s value further up. However, there are also those who believe that the price surge is only temporary. According to them, the coin will likely experience another price drop quite soon, and possibly even sink back to the value of $0.191.

Considering that the current price surge of BAT coin is the result of speculation only, it would not be unusual for a price correction to take place if Coinbase doesn’t announce support for this digital currency. However, the opposite is also true, and if BAT actually gets a place on Coinbase’s platform, its price will likely reach entirely new heights.

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…

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,…
