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.

3 Things to Avoid if You Want Your ICO to Succeed

ICO

Initial Coin Offerings, or ICO, have become quite popular in 2017, which is something that also continued throughout 2018. In fact, there were hundreds, if not thousands of them so far. However, no matter how many of them were organized, most never managed to make it into the market and achieve their goals.

Analysts claim that there are a lot more failed ICOs than there are successful ones, which has caused a lot of people to simply give up on the idea. However, many are still curious to know what went wrong, and while failed ICOs can be studied for years without discovering absolutely every flaw, some of the bigger ones can be spotted right away.

This is why we will now list top three reasons why so many ICOs failed, and everyone who is thinking about launching one should pay close attention.

1. The lack of demand for the product

According to estimates, around 60% of ICOs often fail at the first stage simply for the lack of interest in what they offer. When someone comes up with an idea and launches an ICO in order to raise money, they are presuming that people will be interested in investing in this idea. In addition, prior to making an announcement that an ICO is coming, it is wise to ensure that the announcement will be heard in the first place.

Additionally, ICOs need to be approved by appropriate…

Reasons Behind The New Bitcoin Crash

Bitcoin crash

Cryptocurrency investors and supporters experienced quite a shock last week with the latest Bitcoin crash. Almost every single one of top 100 cryptocurrencies trading in the red. Not only that, but most of them experienced massive losses, often larger than 12%, or even 15%.

The event was unexpected and all cryptos, with the exception of a handful of stablecoins, lost a large part of their value. However, as always, Bitcoin is the one receiving the most attention, especially since this is the first time that BTC has dropped below $6,000 in a long while. Right now, Bitcoin is still losing value, with its current price being at $5,503.11 per coin, and a drop of 12.76% in the last 24 hours.

After the initial shock, a lot of investors started wondering and researching the new crash. The main question still remains: Why did this happen?

While this is more than understandable, especially considering how much money, time, and patience people have invested in crypto, the reasons behind the new crash remain obscure to many. Because of that, we are now going to explain two events that are most likely to be causing this situation.

1. The selloff

This is believed to be the main reason for the new crash of Bitcoin. The selloff came as a consequence of the last year’s bull run, which has launched BTC and other coins to entirely new heights. Because of that, numerous…

Here’s Why This Coin Still Has Wings (WINGS)

WINGS

WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.

Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.

What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.

The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…
