EOS Progress Put Ethereum (ETH) in Trouble

The crypto technology continues to develop, and with each passing day, we see new improvements in the younger cryptos. Despite the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are still dominating the market, Ethereum, at least, might soon be replaced by none other than EOS itself.

Will EOS knock down Ethereum?

Ever since Bitcoin first came to be, back in 2009, a lot of cryptocurrencies have emerged, wishing to challenge its dominance. Ethereum was one of them, and it managed to become great in its own way. Considering that BTC was the first crypto, it is easy to see how this coin would make a lot of mistakes while trying to figure everything out.

Ethereum was the one who worked hard to improve itself, and not makes those same mistakes, which allowed it to be the second representative of the crypto world. However, that also made it a target for the new coins, who wanted to become even better than ETH. A lot of them started walking down this path, and EOS has become one of the most successful projects that wish to slay Ethereum, and take its place.

EOS makes significant progress.

EOS has done well for itself this year, and despite some big missteps, the crypto is still here and still fighting. Many coins have suffered from the price drops that occurred at the beginning of the year, including EOS. However, it still managed to spike hard in mid-May. Soon after that, the coin launched its MainNet, after months of testing on the previously launched TestNet.

This is where it encountered some issues, and the MainNet’s start was rough. However, the team responded and fixed the issue within a few hours. However, the situation with its price has not been doing so well lately, and EOS’ value has been dropping continuously for several days now. It currently holds the rank of 5 on CoinMarketCap, with a price of $7.04 per coin.

This is still a significant improvement over NEO, which is EOS’ main rival in taking down ETH and is ranked as 12th, despite the higher price.

The real progress that EOS has managed to make so far is not the launch of the MainNet itself, but what the EOSIO platform can offer. EOS has recognized the needs of its users and has included all kinds of different services. Those include various things like databases, authentication, hosting, accounts, cloud storage, and more.

Additionally, the platform allows the creation of dApps that are as versatile as anything that can come from a centralized server. And not only that, but the number of transactions is also enormous, while the fees are almost non-existent. Through these subtle improvements, EOS has come to the point where most of its competition cannot even hope to keep up with it.

This is why many believe that EOS is the future and that Ethereum’s time is almost at its end.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

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.
