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?

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.

Understanding the Uses of Different Types Of Cryptocurrencies




Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.


The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps



gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
