At the end of last month, Liquid spoke in favor of Electroneum as they said ETN is a the forefront of crypto adoption. The platform also announced that ETN/Euro pair would be available by November 5th (today). Now the day has come.

Quoine is a fintech company founded in 2014 by Mario Gómez-Lozada and Mike Kayamori. Both founders had extensive experience working for the traditional financial system, especially in Japan and the United States.

Mr. Kayamori worked for 22 years as investments and business manager, IT and venture capitals in Asia and the US for institutions as prestigious as SoftBank Group (where he was a Vice President), or Globespan Capital Partners at California. Mr. Gómez-Lozada was Chief Information and head of Fixed Income IT at Credit Suisse in Asia.

Their resumes are nothing to sneer at. And they both came together to start Quoine when they realized the disruptive power that cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology can have in the world at large, but especially for the traditional financial system.

Quoine is one of the world’s leading fintech companies that provides next-generation services, exchange, trading, and other services that are powered by blockchain technology. They do this work based on the belief that all financial services will be shaped in the future by cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. That will make financial services accessible to every person in the word.

This company is supported by a native token called QASH which is meant to make the platform very liquid. Another feature in Quoine is Liquid by Quoine which is a cutting-edge crypto platform that is exceedingly safe and, as the name should guarantee liquid. It allows you to buy/sell virtual assets using Ethereum, Bitcoin, and QASH, and now, Electroneum’s ETN.

Electroneum is a blockchain project which privileges mobility and micropayments. It’s a third generation blockchain that includes an asset called ETN which has been gathering momentum very well lately, while most of the market has been going down.

The emphasis on mobility is so strong that mining for new tokens is not done in computers but mobile phones and tablets. All you need to do is to install the mining app, run it in your phone and it will get you some ETN coins every day.

Liquid by Quoine is adopting ETN into their platform next Monday. Why is that important? It’s the first exchange that will allow you to buy ETN tokens directly, by using a fiat currency (Euro, in this particular case). It’s also important because of the credibility it brings to the token.

It’s now going to be paired (at least at Liquid) with Bitcoin and Ethereum, which means that Quoine is the first fintech firm to think that ETN is worthy of playing with the big boys in town and is acting accordingly. Last, but not least, this development will create usefulness and demand for ETN which, in turn, will drive the price up which will be great news for all the enthusiasts that have installed the ETN mining app so far.

Long story short: starting today you can use those ETN tokens that have been accumulating in your cell phone since you installed the app. How can you use them? Well, you could use them to pay for goods and services in those businesses that support the ETN currency. But those are very few still. The new option that Liquid is giving you is to sell your ETNs for Euros and send them to your bank account.

It is a huge step forward for Electroneum (ETN) regarding mass adoption, and also for Liquid in terms of future vision and user base. Keep an eye for both projects. Try and install the Electroneum app; you have nothing to lose.

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…

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…

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…
