The world of blockchain technology is a fascinating one, with newer use-cases being introduced on a regular basis. There is a growing shift in focus from the currency side of cryptocurrencies of its blockchain technology, as developers are unlocking newer possibilities with blockchain integration. Amongst all such blockchain projects, New Zealand based Centrality is starting to catch the eye. Centrality aims to create a solid marketplace infrastructure specially catering to decentralized apps.

The team emphasizes that their technology will provide the necessary building blocks required to develop a full-scale blockchain based services rounded off by a consumer-friendly experience. While all of these pointers seem very enticing, Centrality seems to back it up with their recent announcements and technological upgrades. The network has amassed more than 400,000 users with a revenue generation of $12 million. At the time of writing, Centrality was valued at $0.188228 USD and ranked 70 according to coinmarketcap. The price spiked from $0.109186 (high) on June 20th straight to $0.183484 the next day.

Recent technological Developments

Centrality, the parent company is regarded as one of the leading blockchain ventures in recent times. It has an experienced and skilled team spread globally in locations like Melbourne, Auckland, London, and Singapore. The project is backed up by a global network of investors and driven by a strong vision. After completing a very successful ICO event back in January, Centrality has yet to experience widespread adoption. With a total supply of 1.2 Billion CNNZ Tokens, Centrality is expanding even through a bearish market. There are several reasons for this, with technological improvements being the main reason.

  1. Centrality Ventures Innovation Hub: Centrality always stressed on the need of highlighting blockchain to create a new type of economic model. This involves helping other projects to succeed within the blockchain ecosystem. On June 13th it was announced that Centrality was introducing a fully immersive blockchain incubator aimed to assist projects within a blockchain ecosystem. The innovation hub, which sits within the Centrality Ventures, aims to attract like-minded innovators and subsequently leverage Centrality’s global resources for dApp development. According to the CEO Aaron McDonald, “Our idea is to have 1,000 zebras, not just one unicorn. We want to create a stampede of businesses that are creating new innovation in the decentralized marketplace”
  2. Amazon Cloud Partner: One of the main hurdles in Centrality’s path to widespread adoption is a lack of exchange. Centrality is relatively new compared to other projects, and the CNNZ tokens are still considered best for speculative trading with hype as the driving factor behind it. In this case, partnerships are very important as it adds major value to the company’s vision. On June 21st the Centrality team announced that they had become an Amazon Cloud Technology partner.  This is a major step forward for any cryptocurrencies, as many have started forming partnerships with leading cloud-based service providers.
  3. Upcoming Centrality dApp Marketplace: According to CEO Aaron McDonald, the Centra team has huge plans for the upcoming dApp marketplace which they are working on. Probably the highlight of this release will be “Centra Pay”. CentraPay is expected to act like a payment processor for the Central ecosystem, quite similar to Apply Pay. It is reported that the team is on working on integrating it with other POS systems as well as with Instagram.

Centrality’s Recent Market Performance:

One of the main reasons Centrality has caught the investor’s eye this week is its unusual price performance. Even though the overall cryptocurrency market is appearing bearish, Centrality is one of the few projects that stand out.  At the time of writing, (June 22nd), the token’s value rose to about $0.19, which is 79% over the last 24 hours. The CNNZ tokens are trading around the 2,400 Satoshi mark, which is less than the 5000 peak Satoshi levels.  For a project with a niche market, it has become one of the fastest growing assets in that category.

Final Thoughts:

The market is flooded with several blockchain projects which lack real transparency or a working product/use case. However, there are many projects which can be considered as “hidden gems” by investors. Centrality is one of the very few projects of its type which is backed up by a substance in regards to the dev team as well as other technological advancements. With a highly experienced team spread globally, Centrality is a coin to watch out for in the coming weeks.

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.

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…
