Published

ReddCoin

While Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency in the market, it is one of the most controversial coins in the present time. With Bitcoin’s price hitting a low, the cryptomarket plunged into a major depression. Bitcoin, which uses the proof of work algorithm to regulate the blockchain operations, has been supplanted by many other improved blockchain projects, which more advanced algorithms, such as proof of concept and proof of stake. Regulated by the advanced proof of stake velocity (PoSV) algorithm, ReddCoin is much more than social currency. Representing the next generation of blockchain technology, ReddCoin caters to the all the functions pertaining to ownership (stake) and activity (velocity).

Derived from Litecoin, this renowned peer-to-peer open source cryptocurrency can be integrated into all kinds of social media platforms. With the motto of becoming “the social currency that enriches people’s social lives and makes digital currency easy for the general public,” ReddCoin represents the social media coin in the digital age. Operational since 2014, ReddCoin has experienced a steady growth across all digital platforms, from Reddit to Twitter. If you are missing out on the latest news on this formidable altcoin, here’s an insight into how it has been performing in the recent time.

The Technology behind ReddCoin

When compared to the existing PoW and PoS protocols, the proof of stake velocity (PoSV) offers more competent solutions to users, building upon the advantageous attributes of PoS to mitigate the flaws in the earlier algorithms. Apparently, the PoW and PoS algorithms come with a number of flaws, including the disconnect between the economic and social aspects of a currency. Encouraging ownership and activity, the PoSV algorithm leverages the advantages of the existing protocols to develop a more advanced blockchain solution for social media applications.

  • ReddCoin: the Online Tipping Currency

Developed with the aim of bringing the cryptocurrency closer to social media and the masses, ReddCoin was not built to draw wealth from various sources, but rather to serve as a quintessential tipping currency. ReddCoin followers have the opportunity to use the currency for tipping campaigns on Twitter, targeting followers with backgrounds in cryptocurrencies. Similarly, Reddit users can tip ReddCoins in appreciation of interesting posts and comments on the ReddCoin community. Besides, the ReddCoin followers can tip RDD coins on Twitter appreciating relevant posts.

  • ReddCoin Broadcast

As an attempt to make a foray into the mainstream social media, the ReddCoin executives introduced the ReddCoin Broadcast feature in April 2014. Serving as a Thunderclap-like platform, ReddCoin Broadcast is a powerful medium for sending messages across prominent social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. As for the ReddCoin community members, they can deploy Broadcast free-of-charge to expand their reach, soliciting support for their projects from influencers.

  • Social X

Functional since 2014, Social X operates as a multi-faceted project, which strives to bring ReddCoin closer to the mainstream media by eliminating the limitations of the existing systems. By all means, Social X works towards making tipping easier, while eliminating any third-party intervention.

Development Updates

As evident from the current trends in the market, it has been a robust year for altcoins so far, prompting investors to shift their attention from the big market movers to the lesser known projects. Among the top performing altcoins of 2018, ReddCoin has done an impressive job, launching exciting features and payment processors for the community. Popular as a social cryptocurrency, this promising blockchain networks attempt to keep their audience in the loop by launching effective campaigns. Known for its efforts in establishing a great user experience, the ReddCoin team has introduced some exciting developments recently. Looking at the developments of the past few months, there have been some interesting upgrades on the blockchain, which include listings and partnerships. As per the latest updates, ReddCoin has been recently added to Bitvavo and AssetExchange. Apart from these listings, ReddCoin ecosystem has expanded its horizon by tying up with big names in the industry, such as Musards and Phore.

ReddCoin and the Market 

With Ethereum and big currencies crashing their value in a falling crypto market, altcoins like ReddCoin has also received a setback. However, as per at the price charts of the last few weeks, the coin has recovered appreciably, taking its market capitalization to $135,119,779 as of June 27, 2018. Although the coin is trading in the red, dropping 2.91% from its previous position, the overall performance of the coin has been satisfactory, making it one of the most vied-after currencies of the present time.  Ranking 7th by market capitalization, ReddCoin (RDD) is trading at $0.004690 at the time of writing. Looking at the market response and the developments in the ecosystem, the coin can make a strong comeback in the coming days, actualizing its mission of becoming the one of the world’s largest digital platform for social media integrations.

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years.

Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced.

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
