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.
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.
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.
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.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018. It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants. Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse. The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.
As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha. In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets. I can remember trading during my high school days. It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom. Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard. Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.
Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques. The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft. That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents
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 Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
Karatbars International and GSB Gold Standard Banking Corporation…
