Golem (GNT) Sees A Surge In Trading Volume




In the world of crypto, a lot of large changes tend to happen during the weekend. This is an interesting phenomenon which does have exceptions in case of important development, but most investors still await weekends for the real action. This is what happens to most coins, whether they are among the top altcoins, or lower than the rank of 50. One such development took place during the last weekend, when an altcoin called Golem (GNT) experienced a sharp surge in volume, only to see it drop once more, come Monday.

What is Golem?

Golem is described as a decentralized supercomputer that reaches around the world and can combine computing power of all devices that are connected to its network. It allows users to loan their computing space to others in exchange for a reward, and many have taken to using this method to make additional profit.

This also includes renting computing power from the network in order to perform various tasks or increase the speed of performance. To rent computing power, users have to pay with Golem Network Token (GNT), which is one of the ERC20 tokens. Those who are loaning the power also receive payments in GNT, and can even set their own price.

At the time of writing, GNT holds the 48th spot on CoinMarketCap, with a price of $0.163439 per coin. However, while Golem’s price is relatively low, the most interesting part about the coin is its recent behavior.

GNT coin volume surges over the weekend

Golem was an uneventful coin in the last few months, and the last bit of action that it experienced happened at the beginning of September. However, this changed during the last weekend, when its price and trading volume suddenly surged.

Prior to the weekend, GNT was priced at $0.1517, but it jumped to $0.168 on October 21st. While this is a small spike that only includes a fraction of a cent, the coin’s volume jumped from $1.6 million to $5.6 million, which was a much more significant change.

While significant, this spike did not last, and Golem’s volume dropped down once more as soon as the weekend has ended.

GNT is available on numerous exchanges, with its trading volume currently being the highest at UPbit, with $494,237 in the last 24 hours. Other exchanges that are trading this coin include Binance, Exx, Bithumb, Huobi, Bittrex, CoinEx, OKEX, Poloniex, and more.

It is not clear what caused this volume surge, although many believe that the event has some connection to the purchase of higher amounts of computing power. While this might be the case, the spike in volume is a confirmation that Golem is still very much alive, despite its low price and rank.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021



WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry



Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

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.

Mission Statement

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, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
