The project and cryptocurrency of Stellar (XLM) have been having a pretty good few weeks in the crypto-verse. There was news that the IBM company aims at utilizing its blockchain to develop a Stable Coin pegged to the USD. The same IBM won a 5-year tender to advise and help research and develop technological advancements in Australia in the industries of blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and Quantum Computing. This means that the Stellar blockchain will obviously be involved in these projects.

There is also news of Coinbase willing to list XLM on its exchange as well as on adding XLM support on its custody service.

But there are 2 projects that have excited the Stellar (XLM) Community to the point where they will not stop thinking and talking about them.

Ternio

The transactions per second on the Ternio decentralized blockchain framework are estimated at being over 1 Million. Yes. This project can process 1 Million transactions per second through its one of a kind scalable and decentralized blockchain framework.

According to the project’s whitepaper, Ternio is a blockchain based utility token built to transform and disrupt the $224 Billion digital advertising market through a multifaceted approach. Ternio empowers advertisers to verify spend through each intermediary and gives publishers the assurance and guarantee of being paid on delivery.

Its name – Ternio – means ‘A Series of Three’. Thus representing all 3 aspects of the digital advertising ecosystem: User, Publisher, and Advertiser. With 1 Million tps (transactions per second), this could be one of those projects that will take the crypto-verse by storm.

The Tron project can handle 2,000 tps and that of Zilliqa can handle 2,828 tps. Ternio dwarfs these stats in a very huge way.

Mobius.Network

According to the project’s whitepaper, Mobius integrates the old internet with the new decentralized internet of value. It integrates the blockchain ecosystem into Apps. Its simple public APIs abstract away the underlying complexity of blockchain integration and development so that any developer can build modular constructs on the blockchain without specific domain expertise.

In simpler words, it is developing innovative and simple protocols that will easily connect every developer and billions of people and devices to the blockchain ecosystem.

The project chose the Stellar blockchain to launch its ICO over that of Ethereum. Mobius already has a decentralized app store.

In conclusion, the Stellar blockchain network continues to be a viable option for projects that want a stable framework for their ICOs and final project. With Ethereum having been shown to have security vulnerabilities and scalability issues, Stellar is slowly filling the void for a trustworthy environment for smart contracts. It is only a matter of time till XLM skyrockets in a manner similar to how ETH did in 2017.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
