BlocPal Is The Most Advanced Way to Pay




How time flies! Next year will bring with it a birthday cake and 10 candles when cryptocurrency celebrates its first decade on the planet.

And what an exciting & eventful period it’s been since the pioneer of digital money –Bitcoin- saw the first light of day in 2009.

Both crypto and its original understudy –blockchain- have become some of the hottest buzzwords over the past years. And each in their own right as the world came to realize increasingly that the technologies represent revolutionary solutions & opportunities for the Digital Age that we live in.

We further saw global exuberance, euphoria, skyrocketing crypto values and also, of course, extreme market volatility as mankind celebrated the coming of the new era with gusto. While at the same time regulators and governments around the globe had to come to grips with the choice of the people and introduce digital currency & blockchain into their frameworks.

Although the process is ongoing and likely to take a long time given the vast disruptive effect, it’s busy gaining massive momentum within the key economies. For instance, as Fortune magazine writes, in the U.S. State of Arizona, residents can already pay their taxes by means of certain cryptocurrencies.

While today there are more than 1,800 different digital currencies available in a market worth hundreds of billions of dollars. And after being around for almost ten years, it’s now time for crypto to start embracing the real business end of the deal.

“But why are we not seeing digital currencies used more on a daily basis?” I hear you ask. Exactly! There are several issues still hampering the easy everyday use of crypto.

Enter BlocPal, the most advanced way to pay, simplified!


Please continue reading to see what the current industry problems are and how BlocPal has arrived to revolutionize crypto payments. Also how you can become part of its success story now already as a proud owner of the BPX Coin.

Problem – cryptos are hard to spend & costly

Digital currency ticks all the boxes for being the greatest payment solution ever seen. Especially in our globalized & integrated world and during this, the Digital Age, where borderless convenience & immediacy has become the norm.

Yet, even though the crypto industry has achieved breathtaking growth & extraordinary technological advancement in a relatively short period of time, there are still several issues that prevent the massive and ever-increasing global community of keen cryptocurrency owners from using it as a regular payment method.

In an article titled, “Here’s why crypto isn’t accepted for more everyday transactions”, the popular financial and business news publication, Business Insider, wrote that by the end of 2016 there were already 11,291 retailers globally which accept crypto payments from customers. And for the year 2017 alone, that amount grew by more than 30% it says.

“At the same time, users have also warmed up to the idea: a recent survey found that 40% of people familiar with the digital currency would be open to using it in everyday transactions”, Business Insider continues.

The publication further lists the “main obstacles to using cryptocurrency for everyday transactions”, of which slow transaction times and high transaction fees are two of the major ones.

In terms of the former, “The average confirmation for Bitcoin takes about 20 minutes per transaction right now – but during past stretches of activity (such as in Jan 2018), it got as high as 41 hours”, Business Insider wrote at the time. And while processing times have improved further, even now -in the second half of 2018- it can still take several minutes for a simple crypto payment authorization to go through.

While, in terms of fees, months ago Bitcoin transactions cost $40 each, although it has reduced significantly since then, Business Insider wrote. But even at a cost of between US$5-10 per transaction in current times, crypto is still considered far too expensive for everyday payments.

But there is still great optimism while people around the globe are working relentlessly on crypto payment solutions, Business Insider continued.

“Crypto e-payments companies are constantly introducing new technologies and features that could potentially decrease transaction costs and provide instant settlements for retailers, while also eliminating the issue of fraudulent chargebacks. Making ground on these issues would make crypto significantly more appealing to the masses as a form of payment”, Business Insider concluded.

However, while echoing the optimism expressed in the preceding paragraph, it must be noted that the e-wallets that come as part-and-parcel of many cryptocurrencies today are still far too simplistic to holistically cover the payment needs of crypto users and merchants alike.

For instance, existing e-wallets are commonly not geared for 24/7 support, instant & guaranteed settlement, know-your-client (KYC) regulatory requirements and auto-invoice generation, to name but a few shortcomings.

Solana Price: Technicals Point to a Sell




Solana price joined in on the recent rally in the global cryptocurrency market, jumping nearly 17% in the past week. Solana has made substantial gains this year, climbing 102% in its year-to-date price. SOL ranks as the 11th largest cryptocurrency after Binance USD and ahead of Polkadot. Despite the altcoin’s recent rally, the total volume of the coin traded has continued to dwindle.


Solana price was trading slightly higher on Friday as Bitcoin and other altcoins extended their rally despite the bank contagion fears weighing on the markets. Bitcoin and Ethereum have been leading the recent rally in the market, jumping more than 30% and 20% in the past week, respectively.

Investors have welcomed the resilient crypto prices amid the recent crisis in the banking sector this week. The week started with the collapse of Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank on Sunday until the focus shifted to Credit Suisse and First Republic Bank. Traders have been digesting the fate of Credit Suisse even after the bank said that it would borrow up to 50 billion Swiss Francs from the Swiss National Bank.

Several analysts have linked the recent rally in the crypto market to lingering bank worries. Even so, crypto prices are heavily influenced by inflation and the Federal Reserve interest rate hikes. According to analysts, the recent decline in banking stocks points to the vulnerability of traditional institutions, raising liquidity concerns…

Ethereum Price: ETH Jumped 10% Over the Weekend, What Next?




Ethereum price staged a strong recovery over the weekend, wiping out its previous losses after jumping by more than 11%. ETH has moved past the crucial level of $1,500 and is currently trading at 1,588.98. The altcoin’s total market cap has jumped by more than 8% over the past 24 hours, while the total volume of the coin traded increased by nearly 37%.


Ethereum price staged a strong comeback during the weekend, breaking its 5-day consecutive downtrend. Ethereum’s recovery is in line with the overall recovery in the crypto market. The global crypto market cap has jumped past the $1 trillion level and currently sits at $1.02 trillion. The total crypto market volume has increased by more than 31% over the last day.

Last week was a tough week for the crypto community. The Silvergate crisis, as well as fears about potential further interest rate hikes, had been weighing on the crypto market in the past week. Silvergate recently announced its plans to wind down its operations and liquidate its bank, staging the biggest hit on the crypto market after FTX’s collapse and Terra’s LUNA crash.

Notably, Fed chair Jerome Powell warned that the US central bank is likely to impose further interest rate hikes to higher levels than previously anticipated. The raising of interest rates over the past year has heavily weighed on risk assets such as cryptocurrencies and stocks.

Cardano Price Sets Out for an 8% Slip Amid Silvergate’s Crisis and a Hawkish Fed




Cardano price has been under intense pressure for the past few days as Silvergate poses for a potential bankruptcy. ADA has slipped by more than 7% in the past week but remains 32% higher in the year to date. At the time of writing, ADA was 2.54% lower at $0.3221, while its total market cap inched nearly 1% lower. Cardano ranks as the 7th largest cryptocurrency by market cap after XRP and above Polygon.

Fundamental Analysis

Cardano price has recorded a sharp decline for the past few days as Silvergate’s crisis continues to weigh on cryptocurrencies. Silvergate Capital is a Californian bank that pioneered money transactions between cryptocurrencies and hard cash. The Silvergate crisis looks to be the next big failure after the collapse of FTX and Terra’s LUNA meltdown.

Data by Coinmarketcap show that the global crypto market cap has continued to move lower to $1.01 trillion, pointing to a bearish outlook in the crypto market. Bitcoin’s dominance has also inched lower as the digital asset remains at the $22,000 level.

Fears of higher interest rates by the US Federal Reserve have been gnawing at the markets, following Powell’s hawkish tone. Fed chair Jerome Powell announced on Tuesday that the Federal Reserve is prepared to return to bigger interest rate hikes in a bid to fight inflation.

The US central bank has been struggling to cool the economy despite a year-long campaign of…
