Do you remember the time when Microsoft, Yahoo and Google stocks created millionaires out of nothing? (Please don’t mention Facebook). It’s expected that cryptocurrencies will do the same trick real soon (Electroneum and Graft could help, I’ll tell why later). It did it already, as investors who came into the market between 2010 and 2017 had the chance to have great gains when Bitcoin hit the $20,000 mark.
The current year has been lousy, but the best is yet to come. 2018 has been under the bear’s hug all year. Most coins have gone down by something like 90% which is not great news for speculators. It would be terrible news if you bought when everything was high (last December). But for smart investors and aficionados, this is the best of all times. This is the time in which you can buy cheap and then sit back and see how prices go up as the next bull run arrives. And it will come. We don’t know when, but it will.
The question is: which are the best baskets for your eggs? In this article, we will suggest two. Of course, you will need to do your own research and make your own decision. We are not financial advisors; we just point the way in directions that make sense.
In a market that has been going steadily down, Electroneum (ETN) has been going up. Almost 400% over the last month.
The reason for Electroneum’s success is real-world demand for the token. You can mine this coin by just installing an app on your mobile phone and then it’s useful for any kind of micropayment you could imagine.
This makes a cryptocurrency useful for lots of people all around the world who don’t have access to bank accounts or other services offered by the traditional financial system. And this kind of demand can only grow up.
Among the factors that have been holding adoption of cryptocurrencies all over the world are regulations. Electroneum is fully compliant with regulations. This means it can only keep growing in demand and value, very quickly, quite significantly. If just a few strategic partners adopt Electroneum sometime soon, it will take off in a spectacular way.
Electroneum is very cheap now. And you can get some for free if you just install the app. Keep an eye out for it; we believe you won’t regret it.
Graft is not in the limelight the way Cardano or Tron is, but you should have a look at it. It has the same potential as Electroneum to outperform the current (and future) market.
This is a currency that aims to give everybody easy access to settle payments instantly in any way you want, be it crypto or fiat currency. It’s like Ripple for the masses, not just for banks.
Because of that appeal, traders and merchants are integrating Graft (GRFT) into their platforms very quickly and that will create trade volume and demand which will, in turn, raise the coin’s value. Remember: in the long term it will be usefulness, not speculation, that will decide which tokens rise in value and which ones will disappear.
Graft has also tried hard to comply with international regulations, which makes it a safer bet than many other crypto-coins.
Right now this is a somewhat obscure project, but it’s so well designed and useful that, as far as we can tell, the future looks bright for it.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 24th December, 2020, // ChainWire //
The XENO NFT Hub (https://xno.live) will provide a crypto-powered digital items and collectables trading platform allowing users to create, buy, and sell NFTs.

As a first step towards its fully comprehensive service, XENO NFT Hub launched a recent VIP service to select users and early adopters in December 2020 with plans for a full Public Beta to open in June 2021.
“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
