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.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
