By now you must have heard about Cardano (ADA) considering the amount of attention it has been getting of late. Launched in September 2017, Cardano (ADA) has managed to quickly make a name for itself as one of the top 10 virtual currencies in the market with a market cap of $3,381,881,920 (at the time of press).

If you are wondering what the future holds for Cardano (ADA), then you are reading the right article. In this writing, I am going to try and share with you relevant Cardano price prediction giving you also an overview about Cardano (ADA) and what makes it stand out.

What is Cardano (ADA)?

Like Ethereum, Cardano is a blockchain technology that was created for the development of smart contracts and decentralized apps. And just like Ethereum where Ether is the digital currency or token used to facilitate transactions on its platform, ADA is the default virtual currency for Cardano’s platform.

However, Cardano offers superior technological improvements over other digital coins such as Ethereum as it aims to develop an accessible, interoperable 3rd generation blockchain. Shockingly, the brain behind Cardano (ADA) is non-other than one of Ethereum’s co-founder, Charles Hoskinson who conceptualized it in 2015 and later launching it in 2017.

Cardano’s Investment Brief History

Unlike other virtual currencies, Cardano did not commence with promotions immediately after formation. In fact, the now number 7 cryptocurrency in the market was worked on for over two years before the management decided to launch it to the public.

Within a month into existence, the digital coin became popular in the crypto market getting listed in some of the leading virtual currency exchanges in a short time. The value of ADA, which was initially at 0.021 US dollars at the time of launch, hit a high of 1.22 US dollars early this year.

Value growth of over 5,000 percent in barely four months. During the same time, Cardano’s market capitalization grew from $0.56 million to a whopping 31 billion US dollars.

Investors found the digital coin as a viable investment asset due to Cardano’s substantial technological superiority it offers over other virtual currencies, and due to a competent and transparent team behind its operations.

Cardano (ADA) Long-Term (2020) Price Prediction

Different crypto analysts have conflicting opinions concerning Cardano’s price prediction for the year 2020. For instance, the technical analysis done by longforecast.com show that Cardano’s price valuation in December 2020 might be at $1.89 which is seen to be a more realistic forecast for the fast-growing crypto.

In regards to its position in the market, there is an alternative prediction for the digital coin:

  • Virtual currency investments will replace fiat currency which will drive the supplementary adoption and development of the virtual currency.
  • The Eastern Pacific looks to be warming up more towards Cardano raising the speculations that it might be used widely in that area.
  • Cardano has the potential to become one of the top-5 virtual currencies in the market although LTC, Ripple, and other cryptos offer it tough competition.

However, Cardano (ADA) future prices depend on market shifts and waves, and it is paramount to note we cannot give exact predictions since more superior cryptos and blockchain technologies keep on popping up from time to time. Still, all in all, as things stand, Cardano is ‘red hot’ investment opportunity and could have given the birth to many cryptocurrency multimillionaires when we reach 2020.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
