Cobinhood Adding Gas (GAS) and NEO (NEO)




Gas (GAS), along with NEO, will be one of the lucky currencies to get listed on Cobinhood! Seeing a currency getting listed on an exchange market is always an exciting thing to have, especially if the exchange market involved is one of the “big players”. Cobinhood, cleverly derived from the combination of words “coin” and “Robin Hood” (as stated by Captain Obvious!), is the first decentralized blockchain-based decentralized platform without fees, so having Gas and NEO welcomed on the board is actually a huge deal. Let’s see how the recent listing affected Gas as well as what this currency has been up to these days.

Cobinhood says YES to Gas and NEO

On March 28th, Cobinhood released a statement where this no-fee decentralized exchange platform updated the public on the most recent news. The news was revolving around NEO and Gas, as Cobinhood representatives announced that these currencies will be joining the existing list of currencies being traded on their platform.

The Cobinhood team added that these currencies will be available for live trading on their platform as of April 6th, which matches the date of this writing. That being said, we are now able to invest in NEO and Gas with no fees policy that no one ever said “No” to as these two currencies are now available for live trading on Cobinhood as well.

Neo and Gas started off strong with promptly acquiring a nickname “China’s Ethereum”, considering the fact that NEO platform is dealing with decentralized applications just like Ethereum.

Although Gas is somewhat less appreciated in oppose to NEO – Neo is ranked among top ten currencies as the 9th best currency according to global coin report list, while Gas is ranked as number 70 on the list. Also, if you take a look at the market state of these digital assets, you will notice that there is a huge gap in the price difference as well. However, this is not an odd case since it is a fact that Gas actually represents a token hosted by NEO and Neo platform.

There is also a crucial difference between the two, where NEO is “stronger”, both technologically and on the market, probably given the fact that NEO actually “gave birth” to Gas.

While Neo is being used for providing voting rights within Neo platform, also representing the shares of NEO that you own, Gas represents a token created by NEO. At every processed block in NEO’s blockchain network, a user gets 8 GAS tokens. The production was then reduced to generating 1 GAS per 2 million processed blocks.

Gas is actually very important for Neo platform as this token serves the purpose of paying for running smart contract operations, which means that Gas is actually powering up smart contracts, which is one of the most important features that Neo has as a platform.

Due to the occasion of adding both, Gas and NEO to the list of trading coins, Cobinhood representatives added that they are constantly trying to meet the needs of their users, so they are working on adding new coins and tokens. However, they need to make sure that the coins they are adding are worthy of being added.

That says a lot about NEO and Gas, so it is a bit odd that only a bit more than a week later, both of this currencies are suffering from losses while trading in the red.

Besides from having Gas and NEO listed, Cobinhood also accepted Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

Cobinhood is also planning on finding more worthy coins to add to the trading list while they are working on creating corporate accounts that will enable lots of handy perks including the increase of withdrawal limits.

How NEO and Gas are doing at the Current Moment?

After the latest change in the market, Gas is being traded in the red with -14.69% of drop against the dollar. Gas is also trading in the red and down against BTC and NEO, dropping by -2.42% and -0.56%.

Given the recent negative changes, this token can now be bought for 14.14$ per one GAS token. Gas reached its record price on January 16th, when most currencies were experiencing massive gains in the market. On this occasion, GAS hovered around 85$ per one unit, but it dropped to the current price of a bit over 14$ in only 8 weeks.

Neo is also trading in the red after the most recent change in the market. This coin fell down against the dollar by –4.07%, which is still significantly better than its token, GAS. NEO is also trading down in the red against BTC, dropping by -1.79%.

At the current moment, you can buy Neo for 44.76$ per one unit.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity



collateralized debt position

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…

Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns




I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents




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.
