Cardano (ADA) has stated recently that their goal is to become the next coin to be listed on Coinbase. According to them, the announcement from Coinbase which will confirm this is about to come soon.

As of yet, the crypto exchange has not announced anything regarding the plans of introducing any new coins. Still, this will soon change, according to Cardano, which believes that Coinbase is currently targeting various markets around the globe.

The statement from Coinbase itself says that they intend to support the Ethereum’s technical standard called ERC20. Different ERC20 assets regarding the Coinbase products will be supported by this as well, but the exchange does not plan on supporting any specific features or assets at this time.

Cardano’s potential for entering Coinbase

As many already know, Cardano is made in order to allow its users to make different decentralized apps, as well as to make transactions instantly via P2P networks. Since it is a blockchain with a unique nature, it is favorable for those who wish to create dApps and make transactions nearly instantly, and almost for free, at that.

As a coin, it is backed throughout the Americas, South Asia, Europe, and, of course, in its parent country – Japan.

The best platform for smart contracts in the world

The evolution of smart contracts regarding the blockchain tech is advancing rapidly. For now, the leader in this area is definitely Ethereum. However, ADA is seen as a close second, with EOS coming close to this position as well.

Cardano is written in a very complex programming language which is using equally as complex mathematical logic. It is called Haskell, and its coding allows for some of the best security, as well as the fastest transactions. In some ways, this platform can even beat Ethereum itself, and there are those who believe that this is something that will actually happen in the near future.

Still, even though the platform itself is more than excellent, this is not enough for ADA to add its name to Coinbase’s list just yet. In itself, Cardano is more than just a blockchain. Its coins are stored in a very safe platform called The Daedalus Wallet, which is an additional reason why Coinbase might seriously consider adding this currency. The security, obviously, comes first here.

Cardano’s place allows it to influence strategic customers

There are many things that Cardano has in common with Coinbase, especially when we are talking about their available customers. The recent increase in both, Singapore and Europe really stands out here. The increase in Cardano is growing in Europe particularly, and 8 out of 10 strongest countries have been searching this token on Google actively. Top searches of Coinbase come from at least 5 of the same countries that are so interested in Cardano. Those include Slovenia, Cyprus, Switzerland, Croatia, as well as the Netherlands.

Obviously, Cardano is gaining popularity in Europe, and adding it to Coinbase would be a very good strategy since it would provide a lot of influence in this area. The market is prepared, and the customers are there. All that remains now is for the Coinbase to release the announcement.

It has been almost an entire week since Justin Sun, the founder of TRON (TRX), announced a new big partnership for this cryptocurrency. His Twitter announcement did not provide a lot of information, except for the fact that the TRON partnership is with an industry giant worth tens of billions of dollars.

Even so, the entire crypto community started speculating about the new partner’s identity. Soon after the announcement, a new rumor emerged, claiming that the identity of an unnamed corporation was uncovered. According to the rumor, TRON’s new partner is none other than Baidu, one of the largest tech giants of China, which also represents this country’s largest internet search provider.

Baidu is often viewed as China’s version of Google, and if the rumors of a partnership with this company turn out to be true, this will be a big game-changer for TRON.

However, in days following the announcement, new reports started coming in with claims that the partnership will not revolve around blockchain technology. Instead, ODaily reported that the alleged partnership between TRON and Baidu will be focused on cloud computing. The report claims that TRON will be purchasing computing resources from Baidu.

Currently, China is leading in Bitcoin mining industry by far, second to none for bitcoin mining power. Literally, it’s contributing over 70% of the network’s hash rate (a term that is used in describing the total processing power of a blockchain network). But how Ripple fits in here and what it has to do with that? We’ll talk about that a bit later below, let’s cover some in-depth facts about China’s dominance over Bitcoin first.

It’s a near-complete dominance by China on the BTC mining grid that has made it responsible for mining a majority of circulating bitcoins. A Beijing-based company, Bitmain Technologies, is highly responsible for extracting the significant part – more than half of the globe’s bitcoin, and alone, it has approached 50% of the total hash rate more than once.

The fact that China is controlling a majority of Bitcoin hash rate, clearly tells that it has the power of manipulating or merely destroy the bitcoin network if it gets enough support should it decide to take such a move. Therefore, this has led to serious concerns among countries including the US that China might get an edge in this cryptocurrency industry and possibly becoming a potential threat.

China is the biggest manufacturer of Bitcoin as well as cryptocurrency mining equipment. The reason behind the massive growth of mining farms in the country is because of cheap electricity bills.

Furthermore, the country has adopted several…

While most cryptocurrencies today still remain unstable and at the edge of falling into the red, there are some coins that are doing significantly better. One such coin is Ravencoin (RVN), which has surged by over 26% in the last 24 hours.

About Ravencoin

Ravencoin came to be as a hard fork of Bitcoin and was inspired by a popular book series-turned-television programme, Game of Thrones. The coin’s developers decided to make Ravencoin an open-source project that provides users with the ability to declare assets on their platform. The platform itself is decentralized, transparent, and secure.

Just as Game of Thrones’ ravens are used for spreading the news and truth, Ravencoin hopes to become a carrier of truth regarding the ownership of assets on the blockchain.

Ravencoin’s main use case is for performing P2P transfers, while it prioritizes security, autonomy, user privacy, and control. Additionally, as a coin fighting for truth and transparency, it also stands against censorship.

Ravencoin got listed on Binance prior to MainNet launch

Following the last week’s announcement that Ravencoin is getting officially listed on Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange ba trading volume, Ravencoin experienced a large price surge. At one point, the surge took the coin’s value up by over 31%. At the time of writing, however, the coin is still growing, with an increase of 26.15% in the last 24 hours.

Getting listed on Binance has brought Ravencoin to the top…
