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.

Of course, things change depending on the coin in question, but today, we are going to talk about why it is a good idea to hold on to your Stellar (XLM) in 2019.

Why You Should Hodl Stellar (XLM)

The crypto market is rich with hundreds, and even thousands of different projects at this point, and separating valuable ones from those that are destined to slowly fade away can be tricky. However, even the biggest skeptics believe that Stellar is a coin that is here to stay.

XLM was first launched in 2014, and for a long time now, it has been among the top 10 cryptos by market cap. It is an open-source, decentralized protocol that allows users to send fiat currencies by using cryptocurrency as a method of transport. In a lot of ways, it is very similar to XRP. However, the biggest difference is that Stellar aims to offer its services to regular people, while XRP is more interested in working with banks and financial institutions.

Nevertheless, sending money, especially when it comes to cross-border…

The application requesting that VanExk SolidX BTC fund get s listed on Cboe BZx Exchange that was published on July 2nd needs to be given order by the commission within 180 days. Originally, the deadline for doing so was December 29th. However, the SEC decided to extend the period for another 60 days, effectively moving it to February 27th.

The SEC stated that designating a longer period for making a decision was found appropriate, as more time is needed in order to properly consider the rule change.

Cryptocurrencies need a sufficient monitoring mechanism, claims SEC chairman

Recent reports claim that the SEC received over 1,600 comments after requesting the public opinion regarding the ETF applications issue. In the past, the SEC rejected many such applications, some of which were even submitted by SolidX itself. In addition, they also rejected the applications submitted by Gemini, the exchange owned by Winklevoss twins. Brothers were attempting to gain ETF approval ever since 2013, although to no avail.

Other applications were also submitted by Direxion, ProShares, as well as GraniteShares. The SEC rejected them…
