EmerCoin (EMC) is a cryptocurrency that is in some ways similar to Namecoin (NMC) and Peercoin (PPC). It was launched in December 2013 and announced three days before launch in order to notify miners in advance.
EMC offers distributed blockchain services for business and personal use that is easy and low cost. In addition to being used for the payment of goods and services, Emercoin provides a platform for a wealth of novel applications such as decentralized domain names and advertising networks.
Emercoin employs both proof-of-work (PoW) mining and proof-of-stake (PoS) minting and uses SHA-256 hashes. EMC is a blockchain platform for a wide range of distributed trusted services. Distinctive features include – high reliability, robustness and 3-in-one hybrid mining (PoW + MergedMining + PoS). Currently, the Emercoin platform already runs network security services EmerSSL/EmerSSH, decentralized domain system EmerDNS, counterfeit solution EmerDPO, VOIP solution ENUMER and bundle of other services.
Developers propose Emercoin as a foundation for multiple possible services, rather than simply a currency:
Oleg Khovayko, Emercoin Lead Developer, has stated, “Key difference in Emercoin from other cryptocurrencies is that we are using blockchain not just for transfer credit values. We consider Emercoin as a technological platform for distributed, censorship–proof and scalable services. So we developed a suite of services running on top of the Emercoin blockchain that will be very useful for a lot of companies and even private persons.”
With that in the rear-view, let’s take a look at EMC from a technical perspective to see what may be in store moving forward.
As we can observe from the daily chart above, EMC continues to trade below both its 50 (blue line) as well as its 200 (red line) day moving averages, depicting and unfavorable intermediate and long-term technical posture from the daily time-frame.
However, while the overall cryptocurrency climate has found itself in deterioration mode these past several months and weeks, EMC has managed to trade slightly above and below its 20 (yellow line) day moving average, continuing to do battle as well as attempting to base.
Thus, while the climate remains tenuous at best, EMC is starting to show some signs that the worst may be behind it, although, should overall market conditions deteriorate in the days/weeks ahead, EMC would more than likely follow the path of least resistance along with the entire space.
Nevertheless, we believe that EMC deserves both investors/traders attention at present and may want to consider the following levels for further evidence/clues with respect to short-term direction.
If at any point in the days ahead, EMC is capable of going topside of the 2.85 level, such development, should it materialize, would most likely be the trigger that higher prices may be in the offing with a potential 4 – 4.10 price objective. On the other side of the ledger, both investors and particularly short-term traders may want to utilize the 2 – 2.10 zone as potential short-term support.
In essence, should overall market conditions begin to show some signs of healthy life, EMC may just warrant the attention of both investors/traders.
Therefore, for those aggressive investors/traders who are risk averse, you may want to put EMC on watch, front-and-center on your radars for a potential move in the days ahead, utilizing proper risk management measures, as always.

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…
