Scalability issues remain one of the biggest challenges of the crypto world. Without solving it, the crypto and blockchain technology will have big problems with reaching mainstream usage. Right now, most cryptos are looking into off-chain scaling solutions. One such solution is the lightning network. However, solutions like lightning network might lead to centralization problems, which is what this technology has been looking to distance itself in the first place. With that in mind, Digibyte has different plans, which might make the future of Digibyte looks interesting.

The future of Digibyte (DGB)

Digibyte (DGB) believes that the real solution to the scalability issues lies on-chain, instead of off-chain. Because of that, it is one of the few cryptos that has dedicated its efforts to solving on-chain scaling. In fact, its very design is dedicated to this goal, while still maintaining true decentralization. This is why the future of Digibyte might also mean the future of blockchain technology. As such, Digibyte and cryptos like it might be among the first to go mainstream.

Digibyte’s advantage lies in three key aspects. The first of them is security. DGB is among the blockchains with the best security solutions today. It uses 5 different mining algorithms, which make it pretty much completely impenetrable. Next, we have speed. This is among the fastest coins in the crypto world, with almost instant transactions, which can rival pretty much any centralized system. In fact, many expect it to grow even faster as it grows and continues its development.

Finally, the third aspect is cost. DGB’s transactions are extremely cheap. So much so, in fact, that they can hardly be compared by any other crypto project out there right now. The only projects that can come close to its prices are those with a few centralization elements. As such, they pretty much defeat the whole point of cryptos as decentralized assets, which is why they can’t really be considered a true opposition to the coin.

Digibyte to skyrocket once mass crypto adoption arrives

These factors, as well as the fact that Digibyte is dedicated to on-chain scaling, there is a good chance that the future of Digibyte is brighter than most. This might not be obvious at the moment, considering that the coin ranks as 34th on CoinMarketCap with a price of $0.025263 per token.

However, when the mass crypto adoption starts happening for real, DGB is expected to skyrocket and finally reach the heights it deserves. Some analysts predict that its price will even surge from a fraction of a cent to a couple of dollars. What’s more, they expect this to happen in the recent future. As such, Digibyte looks like an excellent long-term investment for anyone looking to make one.

Of course, nothing is ever certain when cryptocurrencies are involved, we can admit that much. Still, considering how much potential this coin has, it would hardly be a surprise if all of these predictions actually come to pass.

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.

KaratGold Background

The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
