The last eleven months have been nothing short of slaughter for the crypto market including the king, Bitcoin, and not just Cardano (ADA). The standard expression to refer to a market that is going down is “bearish”, as you probably already know, but this time the bears were really hungry and made life really miserable for everybody.
But there is no doubt that the market will recover sooner or later. In the last couple of days, we’ve started to see green numbers pop up here and there. It’s not a market trend yet, of course, but some coins are starting to push forward once more slowly.
According to experts, the market won’t really experience a new bull run until it hits rock bottom. Many of them think that will happen when Bitcoin goes as low as 3k in price. Yes, that low. And what should we make of this? Nothing, really.
Markets go up and down in cycles, and the cryptocurrency market has had at least four bearish runs that have been as bad (if not worse) than the current one. It’s always recovered and more. There’s nothing wrong with Bitcoin, or any other digital asset. It just so happens that as long as the alt-coin exchanges around the world are ruled by speculative pressure, these episodes are unavoidable.
However low Bitcoin could be right now, it remains the gold among digital assets, and it will remain so until some other token takes over its place as the world’s largest by market capitalization and as a base currency in the world’s exchanges. Maybe Bitcoin is down, but it’s definitely not out.
But even in a market as adverse as today’s, those who can read the signs of the times and know what they’re doing can still make a bit of money. No, seriously. Just a few days ago the market saw a bull run on Cardano’s (congrats to those who took advantage) that made it grow quite a bit. It didn’t last, but you can be sure that those who saw it coming made a pretty penny.
And since we are on the subject of Cardano, let’s dig a little deeper.
It may not be the traders and investors darling coin, but in terms of technological and academic prestige, very few blockchain projects can hold their own against Cardano.
It’s considered to be the best third generation blockchain technology. It has a professional developing team behind it, it’s looking to bring innovations to the blockchain seriously, it enjoys an outstanding reputation among the cryptographic academic world, and it has great potential.
You don’t hear a lot about Cardano in the news. There’s a reason for that. The blockchain projects that are actively trying to find case uses for their tokens (and there are not that many of those, most are quite passive in that regard) are trying to gain adoption in Europe, Asia, or North America. Not Cardano.
Cardano is working to get Africa. That’s because the Cardano leadership knows that in Africa, there is a dearth of financial services of all kinds, so it’s the place in the world in which a good cryptocurrency can be adopted the soonest by a large chunk of the population thus becoming real money quickly.
Many observers believe that Cardano (ADA) will go as high as $8.00 or $10.00 in the following thirteen months. That would be huge as it’s trading at $0.0346 as we write this article. So don’t let yourself be blinded by all the news about the most famous coins in the world. Dig deeper, keep an eye on Cardano’s ADA.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
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.

Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?
The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.
