Within the past few years, the world of cryptocurrency has seen several innovative projects based on the famed blockchain technology. Some of those innovative blockchain projects have become a notorious and profitable investment for crypto enthusiasts and traders. The said technology has made a breakthrough and in many countries, citizens are transforming their daily life and offering a chance to lead hassle-free and quality life. Some cryptocurrencies have aimed at much higher prospects than walking in the footsteps of Bitcoin. Such a cryptocurrency is Dentacoin (DCN). In this article, we shall find out what Dentacoin has to offer its users and its recent performance as a cryptocurrency.
The Idea behind Dentacoin
Dentacoin is known to be based on Ethereum blockchain platform and is regulated by smart contracts making it an ERC-20 token which originated on 14th February 2017. The main idea behind creating blockchain based platforms is to disrupt the current industry and its policies by introducing a decentralized approach which is far easier, secure and transparent for its users. Going parallel to this ideology, Dentacoin is one such project. As the name suggests, Dentacoin is a means to support the dental community by disrupting the pre-existent dental care and services and improve their quality for people all over the globe. By introducing their cryptocurrency, DCN as a reward system, Dentacoin is promoting participation for their community.
Aims of Dentacoin
Dentacoin team and its community share the same goal of improving the dental health and services which are already available for people through government and private firms. In short, the Dentacoin foundation (formed on 3rd March 2017) is aiming to form a flawless dental industry community by rewarding people who make contributions in improving the platform or participate in it with Dentacoin (DCN). Consequently, the coin will experience a rise (due to its utility) and will enter major cryptocurrency markets. All of this makes Dentacoin an exceptional blockchain project which is striving to incorporate dentistry with blockchain. To achieve this, Dentacoin foundation is currently creating a dedicated community.
How Does It Work?
The co-founder of Dentacoin, Philipp Grenzenbach has named Dentacoin as the world’s largest blockchain health network. The system works in the following way:
A patient deposits a small fee every month to Dentacoin and in its exchange obtains ongoing healthcare and treatment ‘free of cost’ from a dentist who has participated with the platform. The dentist receives an ongoing basic income. The main reason for its popularity is also hidden behind the fact that users of Dentacoin are rewarded for using the platform and to take care of their teeth by Dentacoin supporting dentists. The constant improvement and releases made by Dentacoin is the reason why its community has been growing. They released Dentacoin.com v0.1 on 20th May last year and within a mere year the project has come a long way and is slated to release DentaVox Market Research Platform.
It is important to note that Dentacoin has already been integrated as a means of payment for various dental services by almost 13 countries. According to leading news agencies, the software application and cryptocurrency by Dentacoin foundation is currently being used by 35,000 users who are dentists, patients or supporters. The list of Dentacoin adopters is fast increasing as some of the leading German manufacturer of dental implants ‘Bredent’ have joined Dentacoin mission through its supplier Dentamed.
Upcoming Exchange Listing
At present, the Dentacoin community is hyped for its upcoming first Exchange Listing on OKEx. OKEx is one of the major cryptocurrency exchanges, for this reason, Dentacoin listing means the expansion of its markets further in South Korea where it sees huge adoption. Although the listing is still not confirmed and the voting procedure is currently underway. Dentacoin is presently available at some of the most market influencing exchanges such as Cryptopia, EtherDelta, HitBTC, and CoinExchange. According to market analysts and crypto enthusiasts, Dentacoin needs to grow its markets even more in order to secure more adoption of its platform and software applications.
According to the data on CoinMarketCap, Dentacoin is ranked as 58th largest cryptocurrency at the time of writing. The individual price of each DCN is approximately $0.0011 USD which is going up at a rate of 13.47%. The total market capitalization of Dentacoin has recently reached to an approximate of $364 million USD whereas almost $1.3 million USD worth Dentacoin has exchanged hands past 24 hours. Due to the currently mixed sentiments of crypto markets, it’s too early to comment on how Dentacoin is going to perform in the coming days. But if it secures the OKEx listing and the goal of releasing Dentacoin Integrated platform then it’ll surely gain more positivity and try to reach at least $1 USD mark.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
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 dot.com 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.
KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
