Despite the fact that 2018 has been almost constantly bearish, numerous cryptocurrencies have still managed to make some very important moves. EOS is certainly one of them, and this year will be marked forever in EOS history as the year when the crypto has launched its own MainNet.

While this was a most eagerly anticipated event, it was successfully pulled back in June. Ever since then, EOS has been working hard to make its network bigger, better, and more reliable. The same goes for its community, which has already benefitted greatly from numerous EOS airdrop events in the last few months.

However, the excitement is not yet over, and EOS airdrop list still holds quite a few of events that should not be missed by coin’s supporters and holders.

What is EOS airdrop?

For those who might not know, an airdrop is an event during which a crypto project distributes its coins to its users. The events have grown to be very popular, since coins are distributed for free, and they can be obtained without paying or trading other cryptos.

This is considered to be among the best marketing strategies for every crypto. The faithful users can see it as a reward for their support, while it is not unheard of for these events to attract new users which are effectively expanding the coin’s community. With an increase in awareness, EOS airdrop events can also help with driving the widespread adoption of the coin.

Airdrops are often performed by various projects that are in development on the specific coin’s network. These can include new dApps, platforms, and even decentralized exchanges. By releasing coins to coin holders, these projects are successfully spreading awareness, and are getting more supporters and users.

What EOS airdrops can be expected soon?

As mentioned, EOS airdrop events have become increasingly popular, especially in the recent months. July, August, and September have already had numerous such events, which have dropped quite large amounts of EOS tokens.

This will, of course, continue in the coming months, and the EOS community is eagerly awaiting their arrival. At the time of writing, there are a few airdrops that have already been scheduled, with a lot more of them that have yet to specify the date and time of the events.

These include airdrops made by a wallet MORE, Chinese block producer candidate EOSpace, a gambling portal EOSBet, a fundraising dApp GiveyNation, and more. One event that has been scheduled months in advance is CADEOS airdrop. CADEOS is a decentralized CAD file, as well as a platform dedicated to project management. It aims to allow users to manage their projects with more efficiency and ease, as well as to share and edit CAD files on the platform directly. CADEOS airdrop is scheduled to be held on December 12 of this year.

While the number of scheduled airdrops is currently only limited to CADEOS airdrop, this should not discourage EOS holders. As mentioned previously, there are numerous others that have yet to provide an official date of the airdrop. Still, they will come sooner or later, and EOS enthusiasts should stay tuned, and keep an eye out for official announcements of these events.

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

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…

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…
