Cardano (ADA) is a relatively new cryptocurrency (released only last September 2017) that is making a lot of noise in the market and growing in spectacular fashion. It is hailed as the only currency based on sound scientific philosophy, open source software, and peer-reviewed work. One of this coin’s features is that it includes advanced contract handling from the get-go. That has made loyal followers out of many traders, investors, and enthusiasts.
Cardano’s e-Wallet is called Daedalus, and it’s like no other one in the market. It gives users the ability to activate decentralized applications within the cryptocurrency’s Blockchain. So, it’s both very powerful, versatile and safe.
Because of the many benefits it has, this coin has been rising unwaveringly since it arrived in the market. It’s trading at $0.32519 right now, which is an incredible 9.27% increase from its price from 7-days ago.
This is a currency that, despite being so young, is fully featured, it’s grown dramatically, and it has earned a very loyal user base globally – so, it’s worth it to have a look at its current situation and at Cardano’s development plans.
Cardano’s capitalization is already higher than what Litecoin enjoys. It’s worth over nine billion right now, which is an impressive feat to achieve in only eight months. It’s the worlds sixth preferred coin, according to Coinmarketcap and if things keep going as they have so far, it’s going to continue rising in value and market share.
Cardano’s value is anticipated to keep growing this year
Cardano has been rising in value ever since it was launched. It has increased 1500% in a short period.
Traders, investors, and experts like the currency’s exceptional features. Besides that, developing the platform is easy because Cardano is made through open-source, and the peer-reviewed philosophy they promote makes everything transparent and easy to follow.
The team behind Cardano’s ADA is highly competent and active. When you have all those things combined in a single cryptocurrency, chances are it will be stable, strong, and the usual fluctuations that hit the altcoins markets won’t harm it much.
Cardano bets on gambling
Among the pending questions that surround the Blockchain technology is, can it be used in casino games? This is a serious issue because if a gambler wins a big price and wants to collect it as a cryptocurrency then the transaction is bigger, slower, and more expensive. It’s easy to see why this would be a problem for a practical gaming system based on altcoins.
In a recent whitepaper, Cardano announced that they already have a gambling game that can be both fair and based on cryptocurrencies. Moreover, their game would not include any kind of transaction charge. Should they succeed in this enterprise, they would not only become one of the leading coins in the world, but they would also have all the casino business for them alone.
Cardano’s hardware wallet
A hardware wallet has many advantages. It improves security significantly because it’s mostly kept offline. While Cardano’s security is not in question at all, their new hardware wallet (launched last February 1st) is highly secure and capable of keeping any digital threat at bay. This increases investor’s confidence in the coin’s safety.
Attractive buying price
At the coin’s current price ($0.32519), it’s still cheap enough so you can buy it in high volumes but the prospects for growth are there as well. Cardano will inevitably become the year’s big opportunity to do great in the industry.
Steady and silent rise to the top of the coin industry
Cardano’s growth has been very quiet, but it’s been very steady as well. Keep an eye on this currency as it is expected to keep growing and become one of the market’s big players sooner rather than later.

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…
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…
KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents
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.
KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
