Electroneum (ETN) will take off sooner rather than later

Electroneum’s ETN cryptocurrency had a good week the week before last week. It kept rising all week long so it was expected that it would adjust downwards at some point, which is what’s been happening in the last couple of days. It’s been losing value moderately, as all crypto coins have.

The trend is headed by Bitcoin, as usual. Let’s not forget that almost every cryptocurrency is pegged to Bitcoin in some way because most of them are paired with it in exchanges, so when Bitcoin goes down, most other tokens go down as well, one way or the other.

The token has lost 1.76% in value over the last day, in terms of value against USD. This shouldn’t scare anybody off. It’s trading at $0.0149 as we write this. The current price keeps it around the $0.01 mark and it’s expected to go back up before going further down. It’s lost about 2% against Bitcoin, but this is the natural development of things every time that Bitcoin goes down, has it has for more than 10 months now.

If you take the time to have a look at the crypto social media, you’ll see that there is still a lot of good stuff happening for Electroneum behind the scenes. A recent interview with Richar Ells explains how the project is planning to achieve mass adoption so it will reach 20 million users very soon indeed. This is quite ambitious, but it will keep the project’s growth going on which is what matters most for both users and the community in general.

According to some observers, Electroneum and Graft could be among the coins that will make a lot of money for rational players who know what to do with them. Besides pure speculation, ETN users and believers are still expecting lots of good things from this project as of now.

It remains to be seen how things will turn out for Electromeum (ETN) but it’s gaining new users for sure because it’s very easy to come into the Electroneum community. All you need to do is to install an app on your mobile phone or a tablet and let it do the mining for you.

As the current market is going it will be very interesting to see what happens with ETN. Bitcoin is still trading in red numbers and as long as that stays the same, all other coins will suffer. But even in the current crypto environment, Electroneum has managed to create so much excitement that it will surely rise in price sooner rather than later. But as things are now, almost no token can avoid the bearish pressure. But everything is possible, and the cryptosphere can change in the blink of an eye.

For Electroneum the key use cases are micropayments and mobile mining and it’s gaining ground on both. It’s probably the easiest cryptocurrency to acquire because you don’t even need to buy it or enter an exchange to get it.

Cryptocurrencies are an asset class that could create lots of millionaires in the next few years and both Electroneum and Graft could end up being the cause for some of them.

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

The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

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…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

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…
