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.

Market Position

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.

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 Background

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
