As crypto users, we know for a fact that one of the most valuable tools for us to handle is Crypto-to-Cash converters, a field that seems to be a wider one every day. However, not all of the time these converters are that trustable and that’s precisely the moment where we start to question what’s the perfect place to go to when we want to access trustable information of the prices that specific crypto trades can give us in our fiat currency.
In this sense, nothing says more ‘trustable’ than Google does, or at least that’s what most of us believe when we want to search on the internet, let’s say, anything. And guess what?
One of the things that we can search right now on Google is the price in cash that we would receive by trading certain crypto coins, a brilliant move made by Google that many might consider a little daunting for the search giant in the end. Let’s see how it goes.
Google’s crypto-to-cash converter
Google’s ability to convert from Bitcoin to cash is not actually that new. In fact, we all have been enjoying the latest feature of the giant for a couple of months now.
But truth be told, the possibility of extrapolating this to other cryptos in the market was actually not so close, or at least that’s what we thought, which is the main reason why we almost lost our minds finding out of the adding of altcoins such as Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BTH).
As a matter of fact, you can always search on Google for any crypto-related conversion that you want to have, but what the company has done differently in order to make it stand out is that once you search for a specific crypto, let’s say for instance ‘Bitcoin’, then it immediately opens its converter and give you the rate for that coin, something similar to what happens once you type and search for ‘translate’.
As of now, in the cases of Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BTH), the only thing we need to do is to type the name and start searching, the first result it shows will be the Crypto-to-Cash converter of Google. However, in the case of Ethereum (ETH), the process varies a little bit as the user would need to type the name followed by the request “currency converter”.
Controversy with the newest feature
Not only in the field of crypto but in general terms, one of the most criticized things of Google despite the incredible help that represents for all of us, is that the company seems to know a little too much about ourselves, and to say the least, that is precisely what crypto users tend to avoid.
This is the main reason why a great part of the community seems to be concerned about what would be the true intentions of Google with its latest move. Is it possible that they want to track which are the most tradable coins? Or is it about them building their very own crypto? Well, for now, it just seems like a helpful tool, we all will have to wait and see. So stay tuned.

Here’s Why This Coin Still Has Wings (WINGS)
WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.
Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.
What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.
The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…
6 Blockchain Predictions For 2019
As 2018 moves closer towards its end, investors, developers, and tech enthusiasts are starting to turn their gaze towards the future. 2019 is less than two months away, and it promises new breakthroughs and large changes. This is especially true when it comes to blockchain technology.
While 2018 was an important year for this technology’s development, many are wondering what awaits us in the near future. Because of this, we have created a list of 6 predictions regarding the blockchain, as well as what might happen to it in 2019. Let’s begin.
1. Search for new and better business use cases
Blockchain technology is wrongly seen by many as a magical way to resolve all issues that we struggle with today. However, while it is true that blockchain can help with a lot of them, there are still numerous other problems that are better suited to be solved by alternative technologies. Robotics, AI, and similar technologies are not to be discarded in blind faith in the blockchain.
Researchers and developers have recognized this, which is why 2019 will be dedicated to finding specific use cases for blockchain technology. Blockchain will be used in situations where it can have the strongest positive impact. In other words, the goal is not to find places where this tech can fit, but to find places where it is the best fit.
2. Fixing blockchain industry’s image
For a lot of people, blockchain…
TRON DEX Goes Crazy, TRX Founder Asks For More Projects
Less than a week ago, TRON (TRX) community uncovered a new DEX (decentralized exchange) on Tronscan.org. Since TRON community is among the strongest and most supportive communities to ever support a coin, trading activity on this DEX quickly skyrocketed.
So much so, in fact, that TRON’s founder, Justin Sun, felt that he should share this fact on his Twitter account.

TRON DEX sees massive growth in activity
Since Sun shares a lot of traits with TRX community, such as tirelessness and fascination with this project, he was quick to urge the community to come up with additional tokens and projects.
While Sun’s statement that the activity on the DEX is “going crazy” is pretty accurate, many do not realize just how accurate this is. It should be pointed out that the number of tokens on the exchange was 3 on November 10th, when the DEX was originally uncovered. Today, on November 13th, the number of available tokens has doubled.
In addition, 4 out of 6 trading pairs offered on the exchange have experienced significant gains, with the remaining two experiencing only slight drops. The growth was experienced by Dice/TRX (146%), TronWatchMarket/TRX (8.27%), WIN/TRX (89%), and SEED/TRX (1.73%). The drop was experienced…
