The team at Bytecoin (BCN) had realized a need to communicate with the fans and HODLers of the coin and answer some questions by the community to clarify the progress of the project. It is with this acknowledgment that the team held an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit that concluded on the 16th of this month. In the AMA, lots of questions were asked with respect to the coin, the road-map and other issues that were concerning the community. The AMA was successful and had the following questions answered.
Many in the Bytecoin community have been wondering if the coin and project was a pump and dump affair; especially after the debacle that happened when the coin was added on Binance on the 8th of May. With respect to this event, the Bytecoin team responded by saying that they have no control over what direction the price of the coin takes. All they can control is the underlying software of the coin. They also added that Binance never gave them information on a time of the listing as earlier assumed by the community.
Also of concern to the community, was the issue of BCN debit cards and an updated roadmap. The team at Bytecoin was able to elaborate that the debit card project has had some setbacks and they will be updating the community as soon as they have news. With respect to the road-map, the team requested for patience as updates will be available soon.
The project has also been experiencing issues with the WebWallet. The team has been tirelessly working on solving issues of 2FA (two-factor authentication) and refunds. They promised to find a solution and recommended the desktop version of the BCN wallet for use as these issues were sorted.
With respect to partnerships and listings on exchanges, the team also promised good news with time. They are currently working on some partnerships and increasing the coin’s visibility in the markets by having it listed in more exchanges.
Last but not least, in terms of the questions asked, was the rescheduling of the hard-fork. The team explained that hard-forks are usually complex in terms of the technicalities involved and will be updated on when the event will happen. The BCN hard-fork is meant to simplify the code, improve P2P protocol and introduce dynamic fees.
More with respect to the AMA can be found on Reddit where the team gives more detailed responses to the community’s concerns.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
