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.

TokenPay (TPAY), Litecoin, and Verge (XVG) alliance about to transpire

Ever since the cryptocurrency sphere was met with the news of the partnership between Litecoin Foundation, TokenPay, and Verge (XVG), the idea of them coming together has been among the most controversial news to ever surface in the cryptocurrency world.

The collaboration managed to even draw the attention of one of the most renowned crypto-influencer and bitcoin campaigner, Tone Vays. In his usual style, Tone took to Twitter handle on hearing the news, tweeting and expressing his disapproval while criticizing the creators of the three cryptocurrencies for allowing such a move to occur.

In retaliation to the attacks from Tone, Charlie Lee, the MD, and founder of Litecoin (LTC) posted his clarification on Reddit on the 17th July in regards to the partnership. Litecoin’s CEO started by explaining the dissimilarities between Litecoin as a currency and Litecoin as a company.

In his remarks, he said that Litecoin as a blockchain and crypto network is a decentralized network, whereas Litecoin Foundation as a company is a centralized non-profit institution whose goal is to ensure Litecoin (LTC) is developed, adopted, and used. Charlie also mentioned that Litecoin’s cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies did not require his direct services at the moment hence his concentration on Litecoin Foundation.

Charlie Lee made his remarks known saying:

“If Litecoin Foundation (LF) is exposed to not doing a good job, nothing should prevent another organisation to step in and do a better job. This is…

Here’s Why This Coin Still Has Wings (WINGS)

WINGS

WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.

Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.

What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.

The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…

Since the crypto craze began, there have been hundreds of altcoins that have emerged and attempted to take over the world of crypto with their advanced and innovative ideas. While these days there are well over 2,000 individual coins, there have been many more to emerge and disappear, all within the last 10 years.

Clearly, having an idea and launching the coin itself is not enough. While it is by no means easy to do so, there are additional measures and rules that you, as an altcoin creator, need to consider if you want your coin to remain relevant. Clearly, not every idea can succeed, and after 10 years, it is quite difficult to present something new. However, cryptos are still a new technology, which is why there are still many unexplored possibilities that may allow you to reach success.

Secrets to altcoin success

1. Capturing the attention

As mentioned earlier, there is not a lot of things that are simple when it comes to creating altcoins. However, while your plan and idea make sense to you, no matter how complex they end up being, this will not be the case with potential investors. Many of them might give up on getting involved if they do not understand what the coin is all about, or if the road ahead seems too complicated and unclear.

This is why having an idea is not enough. What you need to…
