Gambling is one of the most popular branches of the entertainment industry and as such is drawing many people who are enthusiastically playing different gambling games. Gambling has been around for centuries and even in the Ancient Rome did people have gambling games, among which lottery was the most popular of them all. With the appearance of the internet and further development of the World Wide Web, gambling industry have taken roots into the global online community, transferring gambling industry to online business that is growing larger every year as general interest for gambling games and “easy cash” remains unshaken.

FunFair or else known as FUN has found a way into that industry by combining blockchain technology, decentralized ecosystem, and digital currencies, showcasing what the future of online gambling and gambling, in general, may look like.

What’s Fun in FUN?

Fun is made to support the community of online gambling ”located” in blockchain community that is operating under encryptions that guarantee safety and secure usage and exchange. The fun in FUN begins with the moment when you realize that thanks to the FunFair platform and its coin, FUN, anyone can organize or participate in gambling games, which means that gambling was practically never more accessible than with using FunFair. But what might be the most fun about this blockchain based community is that anyone can open up a casino! So, if you have ever wanted to see what it feels like to be a casino owner, your dreams can quickly become a reality thanks to this decentralized platform. There are more than several, going to multiple different gambling games available on the platform and complimented with maximal transparency so that all users are confident that they are safely investing their money whether they are trading or placing stakes when playing different slot and card games. All operations that include placing money are done with usage of FunFair’s official token, also known as Fun, so before playing you should have a wallet to keep your FUN coins.

Wallets are usually operated as with other digital coins, as just as other cryptocurrencies, FUN is encrypted for safety and protected from thievery and hack attack, operating on blockchain based technology.

The main idea behind this coin is to make organizing gambling and making setups a lot easier and simpler while at the same time having all fees and costs reduced to the minimum of all minimums. That way FunFair is getting more interesting to gambling enthusiasts and investors willing to try their luck with FUN.

Although the primary purpose of this digital coin is to support the idea of cost-effective organizing of gambling games and easily open gambling tournaments, this currency is also tradable. So what it’s worth when isolated from the platform and translated to USD value is still important, especially to investors, but also to people involved in organizing gambling, opening decentralized online casinos and people who are playing and placing stakes.

FunFair’s Value and Potential

Although things were going slowly for FUN during the last year, with the new year arriving we have seen that a lot of investors have seen the opportunity in the last month of 2017 as well as in the first couple of days in 2018. Over the course of only a single month, this digital coin has experienced a spectacular increase of 395.44%, which is without any debate a fantastic success when it comes to increasing value. While having 215% of growth when broken down in weekly changes – in case you are bad at math, 215% increase in only seven days is more than doing fine.

But maybe the most significant success in the lifetime of this cryptocurrency is the one it acquired in 2018 when the value of this digital currency grew for 85.40% in only 24 hours. The final price of FUN per one unit is 0.18$ which is still a low price per one coin, so that means that FUN makes a perfectly fun and cost-effective investment for all of those who are looking for potentially valuable coins to invest in. The current market cap is 780.2 million dollars with over 4.2 billion coins in circulation at the moment. If it is to rely on the fact that gambling is as old as human civilization and still popular, having the biggest expansion with the arrival of the internet, making a decentralized community with blockchain powered slot games might just be the introduction to the next big expansion of gambling industry.

Predictions for 2018

With massive increases in value for over 100 different digital coins over the course of December of 2017, investors and financial analysts predicted that although digital currency market is considered to be shaky and unpredictable, 2018 would be a great year for multiple different cryptocurrencies.

While still a long way to reaching a price of 1$ per one coin, FUN is showing a high potential for achieving this price and promising to go beyond it. If you believe that this could quickly happen based on the current market analyses, the best time for investing is probably now while the price is still low and extremely affordable.

We will be updating our subscribers as soon as we know more. For the latest on FUN, sign up below!

Stepping off the rollercoaster: Why I’ve fallen out of love with Bitcoin

The very word Bitcoin has almost become synonymous with that of cryptocurrency. It’s basically just a medium of conducting digital transactions – it’s a virtual currency and one of many. So how has it taken on a definition of its own and asserted itself as a leader in the digital financial ecosystem?

Bitcoin has been crowned king of altcoins, probably because it was one of the earliest and most successful of its kind. The trendsetter has ushered in a wave of cryptocurrencies built on decentralised P2P networks and has inspired a growing number of followers and spinoffs. But is Bitcoin struggling to keep up with the newcomers who have made considerable developments to the stability, security, and usability of the crypto world?

The supporting case for Bitcoin has been a clear one. Its pioneering infrastructure has situated it in a position of dominance in the altcoin realm. Bitcoin has a proven usage case as a store of value. Having existed over 8 years without failure, it has a large lead over most altcoins and has withstood the test of time as younger counterparts join the market. However, it seems to be on a downward slope, or at the very least, not progressing at the speed of the market.

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…

Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns

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…
