Why Cardano (ADA) is worth keeping an eye on for the next couple of years

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.

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.

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.

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…
