In this modern age where the number of cryptocurrencies in existence is well over 1,500, with new ones being frequently developed, it seems like you hear about a new virtual currency every day. And as cryptocurrency users looking to invest in a new cryptocurrency, we often get to the point where we are not sure when we should invest and what’s the best option to put our money in the market.

Following Ethereum’s success as a blockchain platform for growing DApps, decentralized applications, the blockchain space ever so often experiences the emergence of some similar platforms with EOS being one of them. The Hong Kong-based blockchain, EOS, has been billed as the Ethereum killer. It promises a decentralized application platform (DApp).

EOS 101

Created by Block.one and Dan Larimer, EOS makes it possible for DApps to scale both vertically and horizontally, and like Ethereum, EOS is a platform that allows other digital coins to come into fruition.

Its main objective is to answer the problems of speed, scalability, and user experience by providing account recovery, doing away with transaction fees, and alike. The blockchain manages to attain this by using Delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism.

Here I will highlight the reasons why EOS is a good investment opportunity.

EOS Scalability

Blockchain scalability is a real problem especially now when virtual currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are competing with more mainstream platforms like MasterCard, PayPal, and Visa; they seriously need to intensify their performance when it comes to transaction time.

Although not being a ‘silver bullet’ to the scalability issue, EOS is built specifically to prioritize scalability performance by ensuring massive adoption of the cryptocurrency is not a problem.

The EOS platform was built to hold millions of users at the same time making use of its blockchain, but even so, scaling is a continuous problem that has a terrible way of going around any attempts of solving it. As soon as developers improve scalability, products adapt until scalability levels are reached again leading to another performance crisis.

Ethereum’s (EOS biggest competitor) Current State

On several occasions, EOS has been compared to Ethereum with both currencies sharing a similar vision of becoming a decentralized space for trading with cryptocurrencies. However, Ethereum seems to be back peddling away from this vision as it requires a lot of time, work, and resources to implement.

In the opposite side of the frame, EOS has continued to pursue this vision making it have scalability, and a better-equipped ecosystem that is leading to the platforms become the primary option users.

EOS Source of Funds

Many of the virtual currencies if not all result in worrying situations when it comes to the facts that relate to funding activities. But thanks to EOS’s efforts and success in creating an inflation system that supports the funding of the blockchain, the digital coin can spare users from transaction cost that could have been used to source for funds.

EOS relies on a 5% annual inflation that is used to pay block producers and for requests of the whole community.

Conclusion

Holding EOS tokens allows you to use its shared network resources. Meaning you will have access to bandwidth, storage, and many other services after investing in EOS. It’s like possessing a digital real estate where the number of digital coins you own provides you with the percentage of space that will be at your disposal.

It is still too early to predict EOS movements in the future and whether it’s going to live up to its expectations. But what can be said is the digital coin has a good team, a grand vision to become great, a successful leader who is an expert in the field, and a lot of potentials. With all this in context, it’s easy to understand why EOS is a safe and smart investment option at this time.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
