There are many things hinting towards Cardano (ADA) becoming the leader of new crypto era ahead; we’ll focus as to ‘why we believe so’ here in this post. So, we all know how important it is to make the right decisions when it comes to acquiring a certain crypto, and of course, by ‘right decision’ we mean to choose the coin that offers the more profitability, as well as the best characteristics in order to resolve any of the issues that exist now in the sector.
In this sense, the typical concern is ‘what crypto should I invest in?’, a thought that is in our heads constantly whether we are investors or enthusiasts and things get even harder once the market starts showing some bullish moves such as the ones that we could see till yesterday in the cryptosphere.
It is because of this that now many crypto users are thinking of what would be the best decision to make in the following days, and for that, we may have the answer. Stay with us, and let’s discover why Cardano (ADA) is the coin that may lead the new era of second-generation cryptos!
What Cardano has to offer
Cardano (ADA) is a coin that was introduced to the market by no one else than Charles Hoskinson, a businessman who happens to be as well the co-founder of Ethereum and the founder of IOHK (the firm behind Cardano).
Hoskinson designed Cardano (ADA) to be the next-in-line crypto and the main competitor of Ethereum; and logically, he has made sure to deploy the greatest updates to resolve the issues that the Ethereum network has not resolved so far.
It is well known that Ethereum has managed to be the second crypto in the market by becoming the preferred platform for smart contracts and ICOs to be launched. However, there are several issues in which the existing platforms still are not that skilled, and that is precisely the moment when Cardano enters in the picture to become the solution for the Ethereum and cryptocurrencies problems in general. Some of the main deficiencies are:
- Safety: Most cryptocurrencies struggle with safety problems with the information they manage. In this sense, Cardano offers a layered architecture that guarantees the security of Smart contracts in the platform. This basically means that as the platform is divided into layers, one process is deployed completely independent from another, which as a result, makes information handling a not-shareable thing.
- Communication: Communication between networks is always a complicated thing, especially, because there’s not a way to confirm where specific funds are coming from. And this has been precisely a significant problem when someone aims to create a start-up in the form of an ICO because it would be mandatory to inform the bank of the origins of the funds, which in essence, it’s just against crypto nature. Cardano aims to solve this issue by providing a space in which communication would not be a problem.
Also, Cardano aims to attack new markets. For instance, Africa, South America, and Central Asia, which are places somehow unexplored by the crypto sector.
In fact, Cardano (ADA) launched the M-Pesa’s payment system back in 2007 in Africa, a moment that was crucial for the region as mobile phones have a boom in the industry, and through M-Pesa African citizens can easily deploy payments through their phones to several places around the world.
Cardano (ADA) is one of the cryptos in the market that studies the conditions of the sector the most to provide accurate solutions. It won’t be a surprise if the token manages to lead the second generation of cryptos in just a matter of months. So stay tuned, great things are coming with this crypto!

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
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?
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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
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.”
