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.
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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

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…
