Cardano (ADA): An altcoin driven by the scientific philosophy

Published

on

Cardano

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.

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?

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…

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.”
