Cardano blockchain and its default currency ADA has been performing impressively since its tokenization in October 2017. Despite spending just seven months in this extremely competitive cryptocurrency market, ADA has managed to topple many big guns so far and 0is inching towards making pivotal changes in future. This cryptocurrency has gained its nonpareil popularity within such a short period of time because of its internal architecture. Developed by IOHK (Input Output Hong Kong) firm and lead by quondam co-founder of Ethereum, BitShares, and Ethereum Classic, Charles Hoskinson, this cryptocurrency is continuing its work as a decentralised and highly efficient blockchain ecosystem that is capable of running metadata, multi-party computation, side-chains, and smart contracts for its holders across the globe.

Cardano maintains a very transparent relationship with its holders by providing valuable information regarding technical and community updates. Unlike many other currencies, Cardano makes changes to its roadmap in regular intervals to cope up with the huge competition in the currency market. On May 18th, 2018, the ADA team has published their latest newsletter which contains the recently completed developments and updates on its roadmap, among other things. Here, some of those latest developments are discussed to elucidate the fact why it is judicious to rely on this coin this year.

Major Updates on Roadmap:

The ADA development team is working on a considerable number of projects for the past couple of months to implement new features in the Daedalus wallet along with other entities like testnet, smart contracts etc. The major roadmap updates for this month include:

  • Implementation of Daedalus Wallet Account Function: Cardano team has successfully managed to implement this function on Daedalus wallet. As a result, ADA holders would now be able to open multiple accounts on the Daedalus wallet with different names. The account would display the available balance of funds. One of the obvious benefits of this new implementation is that now funds held in Daedalus account would be much easier to manage. It will also make the Daedalus wallet more convenient to use as the ADA holders would no longer rely on backup wallets.
  • Multi-Currency Ledger: The Cardano team also added a Multi-currency ledger to their ecosystem so that other cryptocurrencies could have equal security status as ADA on this ecosystem. These cryptocurrencies would also be provided with similar storage efficiency and processing. As a result, traders would be able to use other currencies as well on this platform without the help of Smart Contracts.
  • Stake Pool and Smart Contracts Testnets: The registration for stake pool testnet has been extended until the end of this month to increase the number of applicants. So far, approximately 1500 applicants have registered. On the other hand, the smart contract testnet has been scheduled to launch on 28th May with KVEM, followed by the IELE VM release in July.
  • Paper Wallets: The first version of Cardano paper wallets is still under development and is expected to be launched shortly.

The Extension of Cardano Community:

According to this newsletter, the month of May has been extremely fructuous for this currency as it has not only managed major technical upgrades but also increased the purview of its community on a global scale. At the moment, three major Cardano meet-ups are on schedule for this currency in three different countries namely Germany, South Korea, and Tunisia. With these three events, the recognition of ADA is likely to augment considerably.

Besides this, Cardano is making a valuable contribution to the recent developments in Africa. The ADA team has recently attended the Transform Africa Summit held in this year to expedite the development process.

Current Scenario of Cardano:

Cardano currently holds the seventh position on Coinmarketcap with a market capitalization of nearly $6.2 billion and a price of $0.24 approximately (as of 22nd May 2018). The recent upgrades are likely to cause a steeper upward trend in the ADA price chart.

Final Thoughts:

Cardano has been one of the best-performing currencies in the crypto-market over the past few months and it has a development that is capable of working tirelessly for further improvements. Besides, with its new initiatives, Cardano is also working on increasing its acceptability on a global scale. Keeping all these factors in mind, it can be inferred that putting your trust in this currency wouldn’t be a horrible decision under current circumstances.

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…

Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns

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…
