Cardano (ADA) is a blockchain technology that was founded by Charles Hoskinson. After inviting Justin Sun, CEO of Tron (TRX), to design the most exceptional blockchain tech in the world, there seem not be a stopping point for Hoskinson as he went to meet Google in London for possible partnership talks to foster cryptos and blockchain technology.

Cardano (ADA) potential partnership with Google

The meeting hosted Hoskinson and his IOHK team; it gave Google teams all over the globe the chance to put up questions about Cardano through conference calls.

It is important to know that IOHK is the company in charge of the coding aspect of Cardano platform and the company was invited by Google’s London office to give answers to the queries concerning the crypto’s next-generation protocols and also to explain the plan to outdo Ethereum. The details of the meeting will be made known for every enthusiast of Cardano (ADA) soon, according to Hoskinson.

Regarding Cardano meeting with Google, Hoskinson started with an introduction of what Cardano is, and how it functions. He further went ahead to explain the blockchain’s algorithm. Hoskinson, also the CEO of IOHK, further emphasized that the team is presently correcting the faults that their network has. As a result of the meeting in London, there may be a possible partnership between these two companies shortly.

Cardano is an open source blockchain technology that plans to solve the problem that most Ethereum users face which are, security, PoS consensus mechanism, and scalability. Cardano plans to give these solutions in a bid to outdo Ethereum through its algorithm called Ouroborus.

During the meeting, Hoskinson talked about Cardano’s and cryptocurrencies future, and a Crypto enthusiast raised a question on how Cardano plans to overtake Ethereum – Hoskinson answered by saying this:

“So many Java, C++ or Go developers are writing codes on Ethereum? You can’t, Ethereum doesn’t support any of these languages. They can’t even run a single viral app on the platform. If you look at the top 10 languages, none of them works on the system, so, by definition, all those developers aren’t developing for the system, they have to go and learn new tools and new stuff. With Cardano, first off, we’re backed-compatible, 100%, we’re running an EVM.”

It is evident that the blockchain has developers at heart due to its compatibility with different programming languages. These programming languages can be used by developers to develop smart contracts and decentralized applications on the blockchain.

Cardano (ADA) plans ahead

Cardano’s network called KEVM testnet is active at the moment, but Google employees asked Hoskinson on the first stride they aim to achieve this year, and he answered by saying this:

“Our goal is to release the next major version of Cardano sometime this year, called Shelly. We are really working really hard towards that. It might slip, but the odds are that it won’t… In parallel, we are releasing testnets for smart contracts. The first one will be released at the end of the month, and this is done with something called KEVM.”

Finally, it is important to note that Google is a company that has banned cryptocurrency ads, but its interest in Cardano’s blockchain project is quite intriguing. We hope to see a possible partnership between these two companies very soon.

And, of course, Google asking Cardano questions about blockchain and cryptocurrencies in general, refers to the fact that the search giant might be weighing the water before jumping into the crypto-river.

The new announcement by the US SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) states that the decision regarding the potential approval of several applications for a Bitcoin ETF (exchange-traded funds) is once again postponed. This time, the SEC declared that the decision will be made by February 27th, 2019.

The application requesting that VanExk SolidX BTC fund get s listed on Cboe BZx Exchange that was published on July 2nd needs to be given order by the commission within 180 days. Originally, the deadline for doing so was December 29th. However, the SEC decided to extend the period for another 60 days, effectively moving it to February 27th.

The SEC stated that designating a longer period for making a decision was found appropriate, as more time is needed in order to properly consider the rule change.

Cryptocurrencies need a sufficient monitoring mechanism, claims SEC chairman

Recent reports claim that the SEC received over 1,600 comments after requesting the public opinion regarding the ETF applications issue. In the past, the SEC rejected many such applications, some of which were even submitted by SolidX itself. In addition, they also rejected the applications submitted by Gemini, the exchange owned by Winklevoss twins. Brothers were attempting to gain ETF approval ever since 2013, although to no avail.

Other applications were also submitted by Direxion, ProShares, as well as GraniteShares. The SEC rejected them…

TRON (TRX) Back In The Crypto Top 10

For three weeks now, the crypto market was in a free fall. There was one moment when it seemed like the coins are finally bouncing back, and Bitcoin managed to climb back to $4,200. However, this uptrend was only temporary, and the coins dropped once again as December started.

Not a lot of coins are doing well these days, and almost every single one is trading in the red. Bitcoin is currently priced at $3,864, and the total market cap of the crypto space is barely over $123 billion. As expected by many, the bearish trend is still active, and seemingly at full strength. However, there are a few coins in the vast crypto space that are actually managing to grow in these unfriendly conditions, with the most notable one being TRON.

TRON on the rise

At the time of writing, TRON is also trading in the red. Although, only hours ago, this was not the case. Even now, TRX is losing only around 0.50% of its value, while all other coins around it are dropping by 4-5% on average.

TRON’s increase, while it lasted, was not big. However, considering the current state of the market, it was easily enough for the coin to make a big step, and actually improve its position on the list of largest cryptos. After months of waiting at the 11th spot,…

Although I love trading cryptocurrencies as much as anyone, I’m far more interested in analyzing the impact that blockchain technology can have on the business landscape.  After all, blockchain’s potential was the main catalyst behind the surge in trading volume last year.  While many industries will be forever changed through blockchain applications, the gaming industry will be the focus of this article.

The first thing my parents would think of upon hearing the word “gaming” is Nintendo.  And while video games do make up a considerable percentage of gaming sales, the industry has grown far beyond that.  Several years ago, ESPN aired an episode of E:60 that went inside the world of professional video game competitions.  One team, Dota2, was on a quest for a piece of an $18.4 million tournament prize pool.  Yes, $18.4 million for people who play games.  Since then, the industry has grown beyond anyone’s wildest imagination.  And one company, MobileGo, appears to be taking full advantage of that opportunity.

MobileGo’s MGO token is an Ethereum based ERC223 token that was developed to usher in a new era in the world of internet gaming.  The company’s main goal is to turn MGO into the world’s leading currency for the more than 2.6 billion gamers that currently exist.  It is expected that mass adoption will occur as game developers continue to grow their…
