BinanceCoin (BNB) is Being Transformed from a Company to a Community

After Binance exchange suffered from a hacker attack that made one of the coins listed on Binance trade at the price that was higher than the actual value of the coin the hackers used for stealth, we were all caught up in the announcement made by Binance: they offered a ton of money for anyone who holds any kind of information about the hacker or hackers that were involved in the attack that made the market crumble. Due to the mentioned attack, some people even started to doubt in Binance and its safety, which was a pretty troublesome case for this exchange platform especially when you add the fact that Binance is now trying to push their own currency: BinanceCoin (BNB). Now, after the heartbleed that stroke this exchange platform and the massive market dip that pushed many coins down below their all-time high, Binance is up and running with some good news for a change. Let’s see how BinanceCoin has been doing during these tough weeks and what kind of plans Binance exchange platform holds for the future.

Binance and Binance Chain

It seems that Binance decided to take a step forward in order to secure a brighter future for BNB and its own exchange platform. That is how Binance announced about two weeks ago that they are planning on creating a new blockchain platform so they would be able to make a new exchange market. On this occasion, people behind Binance stated that they are planning on making a transfer of interest as they are working on turning Binance into a community instead of a company that now represents. That means that the dev team behind Binance is currently working on creating Binance Chain, where this newly developed blockchain system will serve the purpose of transferring and trading digital values.

With the new chain, Binance is also planning on transferring their currency, BinanceCoin, to its own platform. That means that BNB won’t be “solely” an ERC20 type token, as it is at the current moment given the fact that BNB only exists on Ethereum’s blockchain system and it is used as a token, but will instead have its own platform meaning that BNB will be the main currency on the new Binance Chain. This case will allow more authority to BinanceCoin, and potentially draw in more investors while unlocking more opportunities.

At this point, it still remains unclear whether BNB tokens will be swapped for a new set of currency once Binance launches its own chain and BinanceCoin gets its own platform.

Binance, when compared to other exchange markets, might be the most successful market currently active on the crypto scene as it made it to the top while only being launched 6 months ago. During those 6 months of its lifetime, Binance managed to come to the point where this exchange market is able to turn over t6 billion dollars every day in the course of only 24 hours.

That is why there is no doubt that Binance will give its best when creating the new Binance Chain, where it can also be expected for the price of BNB to rise consequently in the following months. Given the fact that Binance is progressing pretty fast, creating its own platform was a natural move to make.

How is Binance doing at the Current Moment?

Although Binance offered 250.000 dollars in BNB for anyone who has any kind of information that might help them catch their attackers, there were no further updates on this matter. Only a day after the announcement where Binance offered a quarter of million dollars for catching the hackers (or a single hacker) who were responsible for the heartbleed, they have announced the release of Binance Chain, which helped them sky-rocket their token for 20% in the course of only a couple of days.

After the mentioned rise in the price, BNB fell down again probably due to the active market crisis when it was worth around 7$ per one unit.

At the current moment after the most recent change in the market, BinanceCoin is dropping while trading in the red just like the majority of cryptocurrencies. After dropping by 2.46% in the last 24 hours, BNB can now be purchased at 10.96$, which is half the price of its all-time high.

Hopefully, for all BNB holders and enthusiasts, the token will easily be able to climb back up and possibly beyond the 20$ value per one unit once the Binance Chain is released and BNB gets its own platform that should at the same time represent a superb decentralized exchange community.

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

Ripple

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
