Neo (NEO), proclaimed as Chinese Ethereum is working its way up towards creating a much-needed bridge between the world of cryptocurrencies and the more established world of fiat value and traditional currencies. So far, investors were most concerned about the market price of their favorite coins, but as there are more and more coins appearing year by year, the expectations are rising accordingly. That is how investors became more interested in the technology behind their favorite currencies besides from being interested in the market price. As Neo is trying to simplify coin exchanges and blockchain-base transactions, we are interested in finding out whether the “Chinese Ethereum” can become a bridge between digital assets and fiat values?

Neo is Standing Out

In the market where there are over 2000 listed ICOs, standing out from the crowd can be a task bit too hard. That is how we can’t miss on appreciating the fact that this Chinese-forged coin has made it to the global market by being accepted on many major exchange markets, including Bittrex, which is always good news for a currency.

Getting listed on major exchanges and working on getting the number of exchanges increased over time is what makes a coin stand out in the first place as its attainability and accessibility are immediately increased as a consequence of getting listed. That way many investors are able to spot the listed coin as a potentially solid investment.

But, that is not the only way Neo is standing out from the crowd. Apparently, the dev team behind Neo seems to be determined to make NEO one of the top platforms/currencies in the market. Since Neo is mostly focused on smart contract operations, the dev team behind it made sure that Neo can offer scalable and flexible solutions, which is the case with Neo’s smart contract operations.

By having a scalable and flexible platform, Neo can offer maximal compatibility with a wide choice of different types of decentralized applications. That is how developers can easily make any kind of Dapp that crosses their mind as they have all the needed tools available on the network.

All Dapps can be made by using JavaScript, which is the precise reason why it is so simple and easy to make and deploy decentralized applications to Neo’s network.

Moreover, Neo is standing out from the crowd of different currencies by having the ability to easily adapt to any type of transactions, and that is how Neo users are able to find a real-life purpose for NEO currency.

Can Neo become a Bridge between Digital Currencies and “Real Life”?

Neo can indeed become a bridge between digital currencies and the real life where a clear purpose can be found in this currency. In fact, Neo can be already used in real life as this currency has a way in its system that allows all users to bond their fiat values to digital certificates that are recognized by the law as valid.

Neo took its smart contract operations a step further in order to make sure that anyone can use this feature, including even those users that are not particularly handy with tech-related stuff.

Neo has many features that will allow you to easily prove your identity, make transactions in a second with the capacity of processing up to 10.000 transactions per one second all at once, along with allowing you to connect the real-life values and assets with the digital ecosystem that makes Neo what it is today.

Neo and Partnerships

Acquiring new partnerships can sky-rocket a currency as it shows that there are serious investors and partners out there who put their trust into the technology of the given currency.

Neo has some very important partnerships in line as well, showcasing in a way that this currency is doing pretty well, finding its usage in “real life” payments and transactions.

One of the most notable partnerships so far is the one sealed with Alibaba, which is practically Chinese Amazon with millions of active users and buyers. Thanks to this partnership, Neo users are now able to purchase hundreds of different goods and products by using NEO for their payments.

Another partnership that can definitely be marked as groundbreaking is the one sealed with China. This partnership was sealed with the purpose of pushing the market to a whole new level by enabling users to gain easy and simple access to Microsoft products that can be bought with NEO currency.

How is Neo doing at the Current Moment?

After the latest change in the market, NEO is being traded in the red after the initial drop of -2.73% against the dollar.

The majority of currencies are once again trading in the red while coins and tokens are dropping in price. NEO is also trading in the red against BTC by 0.55% and can be currently purchased at the price of 46.43$ per one NEO unit.

In oppose to the price marked on January 16th when NEO reached its all-time high of around 160$ per one NEO coin, the current trading price is fairly low. However, given the fact that this currency is trading more than twice lower than its record price, NEO can make a pretty neat investment at the current moment.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

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…

Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns

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…
