It has turned out to be a good few days for the cryptocurrency market as the prices enter green-zone again. As if that was not good enough, two cryptocurrencies received some ultra-rejoicing news as both were added to new crypto exchange listings.

Cardano (ADA) and Tron (TRX) are the two cryptocurrencies that scored the new exchange listings. Unfortunately, on the other side, rumors of Binance adding Verge (XVG) and Ripple (XRP) to trade with fiat money got a setback.

Today, Tron (TRX) was added to Canada’s Einstein Exchange — a strong indication of TRX’s increasing reach. The exchange is an operation based in Vancouver and dubs itself as “Canada’s fastest growing digital currency exchange”. In fact, the Canadian crypto exchange added a couple of other cryptos alongside Tron; others that were included are 0x’s ZRX and Golem’s GLM.

Tron (TRX) is basically a blockchain-based decentralized protocol with the aim of constructing a “worldwide free content entertainment system” with distributed storage technology, and the blockchain. Simply put, the protocol allows a user to publish, store as well as own/control data.

A few days ago, Tron solidified its appeal in the Asian continent when it was included to WazirX – the best Bitcoin exchange of India.

As hinted above, the second crypto that has made progress, in this regard, is Cardano (ADA); as it has been added to CoinSwitch. They are an aggregator, in partnership with exchanges like Bittrex and KuCoin; so that the customers can access the best price without opening separate accounts. Interestingly, this turned out immediately after some time when the announcement by Binance regarding the addition of Cardano to the exchange was made. In fact, currently, you can trade Cardano for BNB, Tether (USDT) or exchange’s Binance coin.

Binance makes XVG and XRP wait

The day started with rumors all over that Binance was to add a conversion option of XRP and XRG for USD. Unfortunately, Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance quashed rumors via tweet. According to him, the exchange is in talks with banks to support fiat, but there are no short-term plans for the USD as of now. He continued to say that XRP and XVG won’t get included yet.

The Verge-Ledger kerfuffle still angers many and the way Zhao handled the news pleased some; although, others were disappointed (and rightly so).

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.  Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.  BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.  The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
