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.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
