We are all experiencing the hype of the market upturn (yeah, the last 24-hours haven’t been that good again, but neither not that bad), and that’s precisely the reason why we are starting to look for options that may represent the best acquisition in terms of profitability.
In this sense, one of the crucial facts to consider to bet for the right candidate is the network or blockchain platform behind the asset, and it worths to mention that the stronger the platform, the higher the chances of ruling the market at some point.
With relation to this, one the best examples of the above mentioned is Ethereum (ETH), the second largest cryptocurrency of the market, or as it is called often in the sector, the silver of the crypto world. Ethereum has become the preferred platform for the launch of ICOs and smart contracts, and this has represented a great opportunity for the token in terms of adoption.
However, does the Ethereum platform has something to improve? Sure it does! And that’s precisely what Cardano (ADA) is aiming to attack. Most of the problems of the blockchain platforms center on scalability, interoperability, and sustainability, and that’s mainly what Cardano (ADA) has envisioned from the beginning.
Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of the crypto has carefully designed a platform full of research that aims to be a great option for holding smart contracts, dApps, and ICOs, but also, the solution for some of the most outstanding issues of the second generation of cryptos.
To say the least, Cardano is eager to transform the sector with strategies never deployed before. In fact, Hoskinson is also envisioning to develop a solution for communications between crypto networks and external financial institutions such as bank entities.
With respect to this, it is well known that because of the crypto nature, all of the tokens are decentralized and private, and this has represented a serious issue for many entrepreneurs that over the last two years have been having problems with bank institutions that require an explanation of their ICO funding.
As a response to this, Hoskinson is working as well in the creation of a network that allows both financial worlds to carry communications fluidly without interfering with the essence of the sector.
Furthermore, Cardano plans as well to explore new markets such as Africa, and Central and South America.
In fact, the crypto is willing to displace M-Pesa as the preferred payment platform of the African region. M-Pesa is a mobile application that was launched in 2007 in Africa to allow citizens to transfer money, ever since then it has been the preferred solution in this matter.
Without any doubts, Cardano (ADA) is a game player, and we can all be sure that Hoskinson will work tirelessly in the seek of the best solutions for all of the issues that the crypto world faces now. At the moment of writing, Cardano (ADA) places number 9th in the charts, with a price per token of $0.104. Would it climb any soon? Not just one or two but multiple things hint so, stay tuned.

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.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
