EOS has made quite an impact on the crypto community for the past couple of months since it managed to push out Litecoin from the spot of the 5th-best currency, that way taking its place in the global coin ranking list in accordance with its market capitalization. EOS has also been in the spotlight for the past couple of weeks due to the expectation of its main net launch which should take place in about 10 days. However, while expecting for the main net launch, EOS got delisted from Livecoin, and everyone is wondering why.

How Come EOS Got Delisted from Livecoin?

Livecoin is known as the 4th largest exchange market that trades with altcoins and as such counts as one of the exchanges that you want to see your favorite asset listed for live trading. Needless to say that EOS welcomed this listing open-handed as any listing makes up for another great opportunity for the expansion of the listed digital asset.

However, we have been recently introduced to the announcement that Livecoin exchange will be delisting EOS from its platform, adding that they are delisting this asset ahead of its main net launch.

Livecoin exchange didn’t make further statements, and so the team behind his exchange failed to provide the specific reason for the initial delisting, so many EOS enthusiasts and investors were left wondering.

Luckily, Redditors didn’t waste any of their time so they started an official EOS thread on Reddit, discussing the given matter.

In the mentioned Reddit thread, Redditors might have provided some needed answers, so they suggested that Livecoin is delisting EOS as this exchange is known by its inability to support the main net swap of the token.

Since Livecoin doesn’t own the technological capability needed to support the coin swap after the main net launching, it is easier for Livecoin to announce the delisting of EOS then list it back again once EOS main net is launched.

After the main net launch, EOS will become its own native token which means that it will no longer represent Ethereum’s ERC20 token.

That is precisely why Livecoin had to go on with the announced delisting – not because EOS was breaking regulations, terms of agreements or the platform’s policy, but because it is not able to support the transformation from ERC20 to token swap.

In addition to the announcement that EOS Is being delisted, Livecoin asked all EOS traders on their platform to withdraw their EOS units from their wallets as their funds will be irreversible after the initial delisting that occurred today on May 23rd.

Binance and Bitfinex have announced that their platforms will be able to support the token swap once the main net is launched.

The launching of the main net is scheduled for June 2nd, which is only 10 days from now.

On the mentioned date, all EOS tokens on Ethereum ecosystem will be frozen, after which the main net launch will take place, giving birth to a rebranded EOS.

How is EOS doing at the Current Moment?

With the market still plummeting with the majority of digital assets going down in the red, EOS makes no exception as we can see it dropping against the dollar.

For three days in a row by far, the market seems to be caught up in a devastating trend of trading in the red, so we can see no improvements today either on May 23rd.

However, in the period of the last two months, EOS has gained 64% against the dollar, while it collected another rise of 1.5% against the dollar in the period of the last 30 days despite the rough market trends that followed at the time.

During the last 24 hours, EOS dropped by -12.69%, while it dropped for -11% against the dollar in the course of the last seven days, making the latest drop a pretty harsh turn of events for the day.

EOS is also dropping against BTC and ETH by over -7% and over -2%.

Following the latest change in the market, EOS can now be traded at the price of 11.36$ per one unit.

EOS made a record price of above 19$ per one unit back at the end of April after it had previously set an all-time high of around 15$ per one unit back in January 2018.

It is expected to see some improvements in its daily trading volume despite the current market trend prior to and after the main net launch.

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.

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…
