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.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
