Cardano

It will not come as a surprise if you happen to already know about Cardano (ADA) as the cryptocurrency has been receiving a lot of attention lately. Introduced fairly recently to the market, in September 2017, Cardano has quickly made a name for itself managing to be one of the leading top 10 virtual currencies in the market with a market cap of $1,788,102,362 at the press time.

If you are curious about the future of Cardano (ADA), then you are in the right place. This article is going to try and shed some light on the expected cryptocurrency’s price prediction giving you an overview of ADA and the factors that make it special. Hopefully, by the end of this article, you will have learned about Cardano’s historical investments trends and future predictions.

A Brief Introduction to Cardano

Cardano is the blockchain technology that allows ADA to function. Apart from functioning under the Cardano platform, ADA happens to be the blockchain’s default virtual currency, having the co-founder of Ethereum, Charles Hoskinson, as the main brain behind the crypto project.

His co-founded Ethereum virtual currency is widely known and respected all over the financial sector as well as the crypto world since the project is one of the major innovators of the development of smart contract technology that allows smooth token exchanges. Despite the achievements, Charles is not stopping at that, as he is looking into ways to take his crypto game to the next level by coming up with solutions that are bedeviling the new generation of cryptocurrencies.

Some of the obstacles that are affecting most of the virtual currencies today are scalability, sustainability, and interoperability. What Cardano (ADA) does is to offer an architectural foundation layer that allows it to lead in the security and safety of smart contracts.

The interaction between cryptocurrency platforms and banks such as virtual networks is another noteworthy challenge that majority of cryptocurrencies are facing. Thanks to the idea of anonymity and privacy when using virtual currencies, it is difficult to determine the origin of digital assets when transacting or transferring virtual coins from one entity to another.

Cardano (ADA) 2019 Price Prediction

Currently, Cardano (ADA) seems to be feeling the crypto-winter cold as it has been on a downward trend ever since recording its highs. Still, this long-term downfall in value could turn into the accelerator for a breakout shortly.

At present, one of the most significant achievements the team behind Cardano has done is to introduce a newly advanced paper wallet that is safer and more efficient to use than previous paper wallets. Although wallets may appear inferior when you talk about virtual currency, they happen to be important than the digital coins as they dictate the safety of your virtual coins.

Investors require a safe and secure place to store their digital coins. The new and improved Cardano wallet is not only safeguarding investor’s virtual currencies, but it is also boosting Cardano’s credibility making investors and traders more likely purchase the crypto.

Over the past few days and weeks, there have been a few factors that are sure to affect the price valuation of Cardano (ADA) positively in the coming few months if not weeks. Some of the factors include:

Charles Hoskinson speech on Cardano Foundation, Head of IOHK

Typical to his larger than life character, Charles is one man that has a popular name just as the brand he represents. In the cryptocurrency sphere, it is normal to find digital assets that are more popular than their counterparts when viewed in various categories. The same applies to company leaders and development teams. From the speech he gave, Charles surely gave resounding hope to investors on the bright future of the digital coin.

Cardano is improving its scalability

As one of the major challenges in the crypto market, Cardano is looking into ways it can tackle the issue of scalability in its platform by introducing recent technical updates. By doing this, Cardano will be able to accomplish its primary goal of providing inexpensive and simple financial services to close to 3 billion people around the world.

Coinbase Announcement of ADA’s Listing on Coinbase

This has been one of the most commented about news in relations to the Cardano platform. According to Coinbase press release in July, the crypto exchange market disclosed plans to list ADA on their platform, a move that is expected to have positive outcomes on the digital coin.

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?

Published

on

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…
