Cardano just got stronger with the latest partnership update. Apparently, Cardano ADA has just partnered Metaps Plus, which made it acceptable as a payment method as a part of this South Korean-based payment service. Ranked as the 7th best currency after losing its spot as the 6th currency, affected by the Litecoin vs. EOS battle over the spot as the fifth-best currency, it seems that this is the right time for Cardano to do something about its reputation. This is the case especially at this moment when ADA is going down while trading in the red with the latest change in the market. Let’s see what Meta Plus could bring to Cardano ADA.
Cardano Partners Up with Metaps Plus
Cardano just got a bit stronger by acquiring their latest partnership with Metaps Plus. Metaps Plus is actually a mobile payment service that advocates for the integration of cryptos and digital assets into the active platforms and mobile payment apps.
Metaps Plus is based in South Korea and has welcomed Cardano ADA to its mobile payment service by stating that the initial integration of ADA into their payment system is the first integration of an Asian coin into the mobile payment application.
It is needless to say that ADA very well deserved this partnership, given the fact that Cardano stands for one of the top 10 cryptos. The partnership was announced yesterday on May 9th, and it is presumed that ADA could be easily sky-rocketed by this event, although this still isn’t the case as ADA is currently being traded in the red against the dollar.
The team behind ADA stresses out that this partnership is very important for Cardano, not only because it promotes ADA in the market as a currency worth of being invested in, but also because it broadens the targeted market while widening the accessibility of ADA in the market.
Since Metaps Plus makes up for a South Korean mobile payment service, ADA will now get more accessible to holders in South Korea, which could consequently affect the increase of ADA’s trading volume in the following weeks.
Since there are over billion of downloads of Metaps mobile payment app, it is more than certain that this partnership could have a great impact on ADA’s exposure on the South Korean crypto market.
Metaps is highly praised as the mobile platform that has successfully processed over 10 million transactions with over billion downloads of Metaps payment application. If you add the fact that the South Korean market stands for one of the biggest crypto markets on the global level, it seems that Cardano is in for a massive increase of exposure with this newly acquired partnership.
How is Cardano doing at the Current Moment?
As the great part of the market is going down, ADA can’t seem to pull off a rebound either. At least not smoothly. Besides from acquiring a promising partnership with Metaps only a day ago, on May 9th, we can still see ADA plummeting in the market as it is being traded in the red.
In the course of the last two months, ADA, although partially struck with the market dip that went on for good 4 weeks during the mentioned period of 60 days, managed to collect over 52% of rises against the dollar.
In the course of the period of 30 days, which would mean in April, ADA did more than well by collecting a 100% of rises against the dollar and significantly improving its value in the market.
In the last two weeks, ADA didn’t give up, so it acquired around 15% of rises while trading in the green for a couple of days.
However, we can see it dropping in the course of the last seven days while going down against the dollar by -16% against this fiat currency.
The last seven days were mostly in the sign of the plummeting market, which lasted for a couple of days, with only occasional rises spotted among the trading cryptos. However, it seems that not a single portion of recovery is finding ADA in the market, as Cardano is going down against the dollar on the day of this writing which would be on May 10th.
Following the latest change in the last 24 hours, ADA dropped against the dollar by -3.38%, while it is also dropping against BTC for -2.59%.
After the most recent change in its value, ADA can be currently traded at the price of 0.31$ per one unit, which is still far from its record price of around 1.28$ as set back at the beginning of January 2018.

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…
