The Cryptocurrency market is a very unpredictable and volatile space, where an excess of over 1600 active cryptocurrencies trade on the market on a daily basis. The size of the Cryptocurrency market has increased exponentially since 2016, both in terms of market cap as well as a number of tokens operating. Hence, it is no surprise to find newer projects emerging and experiencing short-term gains for a variety of factors. One such coin that has seen a massive rise in value over the last week is Game.com and its GTC Token.

A little About Game.Com

A relative newcomer in the field, Game.com completed its ICO in 11th October 2017, with a total fixed supply of 2,000,000,000 tokens and a circulating supply of 588.5285.290 GTC tokens.  At the time of writing, Game.com is ranked 102nd, with a formidable market cap of $163,005,738 USD and a current value of $0.276892 USD as of 23/04/2018.

The team behind Game.com is based in Beijing, with additional offices around the country like Taipei, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur and San Mateo. Game.com vision is simple, as it intends to become the “go-to” virtual currency of the entire global gaming industry and to address a lot of the plaguing issues found in existing game currency systems. For instance, the major problem they aim to address is the wastage of a player’s accumulated assets once a particular game is completed or a player wants to start afresh. Game.com GTC tokens will allow players to trade and liquidate assets as per requirements.  This will also allow GTC tokens to be transferred from one game to another, eliminating the wastage of unused assets and currencies in a particular gaming landscape.  The Game.com development team have also announced plans for a ”Candy G” event, where token holders will be rewarded a total of one billion coins for achieving any one of 3 pre-determined milestones.

Game.com’s Current Market Scenario

Considering the relative infancy of the project as compared to other projects, Game.com has performed quite well on the market since its entry in early January. In fact, the currency saw a massive growth in value, jumping straight from a high of $0.1981125 USD on January 3rd to a staggering high of $0.354157 USD on January 8th. The Cryptocurrency has since experienced a sharp decline in the following months, mainly due to the overall slump of the global cryptocurrency market.  It reached a record low of $ 0.074506 at the height of the decline, which is still comparatively better for a project in its infancy. However, last week saw a dramatic climb in GTC token’s value, rising straight from a high of $ 0.054955 at the start of the week (April 16th) to a high of $0.160539 on April 20th, registering a growth in excess of 200% over the last week. As of April 22nd (14:00 ET), Game.com traded up to 543.1% against the dollar from the start of the week, with a monumental volume of approximately $234.29 Million being traded in the previous 24 hours on global exchanges.

Closing Thoughts:

The future is indeed looking bright for Game.com, as they look to establish their name in the gaming industry by applying the famed “blockchain” technology. As newer use cases for blockchain technology begin to emerge, it is only a matter of time till investors understand the potential this project has. With a growing number of Crypto-exchanges having already listed the token including the likes of Gate.io, OkEx, Cobinhood, and Bibox, Game.com tokens can be traded with Ethereum as well as Bitcoin pairs.  The Development team has also announced plans to expand to the major cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance, Bittrex, and Bithumb to further encourage mass adoption of the token. Thus the Game.com project looks to be a healthy, long-term approach to establish a blockchain use case with a proper community backing in today’s world.

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…
