The EOS blockchain has been designed to support multiple decentralized applications or dApps and offers all the core functionality. Thus with the help of the EOS blockchain, businesses can develop different blockchain applications just as they develop web-based applications.

LWRC to do EOS Block Production

The online gaming technology section of Leisure & Resorts World Corp. (LWRC) has revealed that they are going to the first block producer of EOS in the Philippines. The features of the EOS platform and its popularity as one of the most traded cryptocurrencies had attracted LWRC. “We chose EOS because the design, technology, and governance of EOS are superior to the other cryptocurrency and address many of the issues the community sees with bitcoin and ethereum,” Gonzales said in an interview. Gonzales feels that EOS has the capacity of conducting over a million transactions per second whereas many other cryptocurrencies are limited within 20,000 per second. Moreover, the EOS system consumes less energy.

In fact, EOS had been developed to be a ‘stable’ cryptocurrency with just a 5% inflation. This means that compared to the other cryptocurrencies, the market of EOS will experience less volatility that will facilitate transactions.

The team of LR Data Center & Solutions Inc. (LR Data) has over a decade experience of working as an international gaming infrastructure operator with Cagayan Economic Zone Authority or Ceza. The objective behind the online gaming technology branch of LRWC to conduct mass block production of EOS is to support the global network and framework of EOS. LR Data, it seems to be is emphasizing that EOS will become a true “retail blockchain.”

As per the words of Enrique Gonzales, LR Data vice chair, “With the launch of EOS Philippines, LR Data is at the forefront of infrastructure provisioning and supporting decentralization and democratization. Financial technology and blockchain are going to be a pillar of our business model moving forward.”

The future disruptive applications may as well use EOS technology. So, in the opinion of Javier Benitez, community head of EOS, this partnership with LWRC and positioning themselves in the Philippines will eventually benefit them.

Reasons to List EOS on Coinbase

  • The upcoming EOSIO Main Net: EOS is also eagerly awaiting the release of its mainnet, EOSIO like Tron. It is slated to be released on 1st June 2018. The EOSIO Main Net will enable the developers and entrepreneurs to build their own blockchain and they will even be able to “fork (the) repository and customize it for their own use.” Once the EOS mainnet has been launched one can only expect the market price of the crypto coin to see a bull run.
  • Confirmation of enterprise application: Even before the launch of EOSIO, Synacor had revealed on 15th May 2018 that it is going to be the first to develop its new email and collaboration platform, Zimbra X on the mainnet of EOS. Synacor’s present platform, Zimbra boasts having over 500 million users and renowned clients such as Amnesty International. In the opinion of the Senior Vice President of Platform Products of Synacor, EOSIO will enable “mainstream consumer products to leverage blockchain capabilities.” Erynn Peterson continues to say that they have many expectations from EOSIO as a leading blockchain operating system. This will encourage many enterprises to follow suit.
  • EOS ranks 5thon coinmarketcap.com:According to coinmarketcap.com, EOS has taken over the 5thposition with a market cap (at the time of writing) of approximately $10,064,808,784 USD. Therefore, if Coinbase is looking for new crypto coins to add to their list, it must go for EOS. Moreover, the current circulating supply of EOS is over 870 million. The price of EOS at the time of writing shows $11.53 USD approximately and the volume (24h) is nearly $1,298,020,000 USD. Adding EOS that has high volume to the list of cryptocurrencies on Coinbase is more likely to increase the trading volume and thus profits.
  • EOS may even outperform Ethereum: The features of EOSIO may even attract more developers and entrepreneurs than the Ethereum platform and it also has the capability to handle more commercial-scale decentralized applications. Graphene technology forms the base of the EOS Main Net and can perform 10,000 to 100,000 transactions per second. In order to avoid scaling issues, the platform will use parallelization to increase the number of transactions conducted per second.

One of the main issues of most of the blockchain projects is currently scalability. Ethereum, EOS, Zilliqa and many other platforms are trying to overcome scalability be it through sharding or technologies like Graphene. The price action of EOS will hopefully experience an uptrend if the proposed scalability solution proves to be profitable. Moreover, the news of EOSIO Main Net launch and LWRC doing block production will have some positive effects on the market.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
