The announcement that Dogecoin had become a test asset for inter-coin Rinkeby testnet of Ethereum had created quite a sensation in the cryptocurrency world.

Dogethereum (DOGX) is expected to form a separate chain by moving away from Dogecoin later in 2018. This would lead to the creation of the first hard fork of Dogecoin. Dogethereum shares the name with the Dogethereum Bridge also known as Rinkeby project. In February 2018, the developers of the truebit protocol had sent Dogecoins to the Rinkeby test network of Ethereum. It is considered to be a critical turn as it again brought Dogecoin in front of the investors and traders.

The cryptocurrency experts say that Dogethereum Bridge developed as a constituent of Ethereum’s truebit technology whose aim is to assist the largest altcoin scale to fulfill the demands of the user.

Dogethereum is new decentralized digital currency, it will be founded on a snapshot of popular Dogecoin, based on ETH algorithm with the fastest speed of transactions, smart contracts,” developers described on Bitcointalk.

Breaking down “Dogethereum”

The cryptocurrency developers will create Dogethereum on the powerful Ethereum algorithm due to its significantly high transaction speed. The developers have chosen the Ethereum platform also because of the availability and functionality of smart contracts. The objective of the company is to direct the present Doge currencies in another direction. The purpose is also to remove ASIC mining that will boost speed and also make it more navigable.

The Workings of Dogethereum (DOGX)

The cryptocurrency developers revealed that DOGX will not be pre-mined and even pre-sale(d). Therefore, people owning Dogecoin will receive Dogethereum in the ratio of 1:1. From the creators of DOGX, “Our goal is to give Doge currencies a completely new development vector, without mining on ASIC, but with speed and simplicity. The community manages the project, so there will be no ICO, no preliminaries, and no other manipulations.”

Dogethereum will retain some of the features from its parent Dogecoin after the hard fork occurs. Till now, the Dogecoin blockchain has proved to be a ‘trustworthy’ platform for the cryptocurrency investors and traders. Currently, according to coinmarketcap.com, the market cap of Dogecoin is approximately $399 million USD and the volume is $6 million USD. (As of 16th March 2018) The cryptocurrency traders/investors will get the same amount of DOGX that can be utilized on the Ethereum based wallets. The users will have the same ease of access and receive the same benefits.

The project has been completely fuelled by the community and does not have any ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) or premiums. Neither does it contain any hidden fees, agendas or manipulations. Sources say that DOGX is in the hands of a highly specialized and trained team of cryptocurrency developers and real-time economists are closely following the activities so as to study the impact it will have on the cryptocurrency market. It is also said that commissions, fees, and stakes do not have any involvement or have been predefined.

The project will at least initially be free for everyone and will use GPU mining. The target is to increase the profits of the users. Real-time experience and application of their smart contracts in the cryptocurrency industry will decide the elevation in the token prices.

The idea initially, behind the Dogethereum project, was to bring all the dogecoins to the Ethereum network such that they will work as ER20 tokens till the time they return back to the Doge network. The cryptocurrency experts believe that after the discussed technology has been developed fully, 90% of the scalability issues of Ethereum will be solved. The success of this project will also mean that the users can use any token on any blockchain network. They will no longer require an exchange platform. Dogethereum will thus be launched with many new features in the cryptocurrency industry.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
