Civic (CVC) Finding Its Way around the Tough Crypto Currents




Civic has had its ups and downs over the time since this currency as launched. Although CVC traded near one dollar price two months ago, in January with the beginning of 2018, this currency has dropped to almost three times since then, in the course of a two month period. How is Civic doing at the current moment and does this token has any chances to get to that “so-near-but-so-far” one dollar price by the end of the year of 2018?

A Little Reminder about Civic

Civic is all about promoting safe and secure identities. The main goal of this token is to provide individuals and small and medium business with fully protected identities.

Civic makes it pretty easy to trust a decentralized platform as it has separate programs for developers and business owner, so you can take advantage of the scalable ecosystem that offers fast decentralized transactions without any type of third parties involved. In order to protect and keep all user identities safe and secure, Civic is using Secure ID feature, reusable KYC, and ID Theft Protection. With Secure ID feature, you can make sure that you will be using spam-free websites that are listed as CVC partner websites and all the included services. This feature somewhat works as parent control for the internet: that case when you can limit website addresses your child is using. Only this feature is a lot more sophisticated given the fact that Secure ID is operating within a blockchain-based ecosystem.

With CVC Reusable KYC (Know Your Customer) tool, you can easily verify your identity per your request. This feature allows all users to easily scan personal documents like driving license or passport and upload all information needed for creating and verifying their identity within their account. In order to use this tool, you need to pay a pretty fair fee and you need to own a CVC wallet.

Once you have submitted all the info needed, the tool will create your identification that will exist within the Civic blockchain ledger. CVC will share your information only with the chosen parties and solely on your demand. All your information remains fully private as Civic is all about the security of identities and ultimate privacy. This tool comes as pretty handy for crypto services within the platform and beyond, traveling, applying for dating sites, lending money via smart contracts and more. With this feature, all your information is being verified in real time and it can be reused any time upon your permission. Instead of having to verify your ID every time you need to prove your identity, you can use this tool for easy and simple verification that guarantees privacy and safety.

At last, thanks to the CVC ID protection, the level of privacy you get with this token is backed up and additionally improved your safety. With this tool, you can make sure that CVC is doing everything to prevent identity theft. Starting off with monitoring and monitoring alerts, this tool will notify you in case anything suspicious that could jeopardize your identity comes along. In case anyone has used your identity you own through CVC, the credit bureau will send you alerts, protecting you during, before and after the ID theft.

To make sure you are additionally backed up, CVC has set up a fraud support that is constantly on the lookout and working on providing you full support 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

In case your identity does get stolen, you will be provided with a new address, a new wallet and you will be able to get back into the game. Very soon, this tool should get a tone of improvements. One of those improvements is a money refund, so in case your funds would get stolen with your identity, you would be able to retrieve your funds in accordance with the limit that has been previously set to your acknowledgment.

There will also be a feature that would get involved with monitoring the dark web hackers who are involved in buying identities for different purposes. CVC will protect you from that harm and let you know if anything suspicious comes along.

How is Civic doing at the Current Moment?

After trading near one dollar value only two months ago, a lot has happened to CVC since. Civic truly had its ups and lows as it also suffered from the latest massive drop in price that all major currencies went through during the third week of February 2018.

During March 4th, CVC dropped by -3.20% against the dollar. At this time, Civic was being traded at 0.28$ per one unit.

With the latest change in its price, on March 5th, CVC managed to bounce back up a bit while experiencing a rise of 1.51% against the dollar within the period of 24 hours. After the latest positive change in its price, Civic can now be bought at the price of 0.28$ per one token.

Given the fact that Civic does offer an unquestionably strong privacy and safety for all its users, CVC should probably get back to its old all-time high pretty soon. In case Civic would continue to grow at the current pace based on the latest change in its price, it is possible that this token could reach the one dollar goal by the end of the year and even sooner, going even beyond the price of a dollar per one unit.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes




While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
