It is the second week of July and the cryptocurrency markets seem to have attained new life with Bitcoin (BTC) leading the charge after breaking the $6,600 resistance levels and currently trading at $6,777. The total crypto market capitalization has also jumped from levels of $266 Billion on Sunday, July 8th, to current levels of $273 Billion, today, July 9th.

So why should you buy Neo right now?

As indicated above, the markets have seen some renewed life with the new month. There is some new excitement of sort of starting afresh with the second half of the year. The first half was not that pretty for we saw Bitcoin drop from values of $20,000 to a recent low of $5,800 just a few days ago. But the tide has turned and we seemed to have bottomed out. Therefore, with this observation and the general mood in the crypto markets, it is time to get a known performer in the name of NEO.

A second reason why it is time to get some NEO right now is the past performance of the coin. During the bull run of late last year and early this year, NEO had peaked at levels of $187 on January 16th. The coin would continue holding its own against an ever dropping Bitcoin and also have a value of $144 in late February as the rest of the market was spiraling out of control. NEO was valued at $93 by the end of May, only to lose its footing to bottom out at $27 only a week ago, on 29th June. This value of NEO was last witnessed back in late November 2017. With a new half of the year, comes new possibilities for the coin and project that promises a smart economy. The current value of $38.70 will not be here much longer.

A third, and not the last reason to get NEO, is the news that the platform has started decentralization. On July 4th, the NEO foundation announced initiated the election of new consensus nodes that kick-started a new era of decentralization. The candidate node run by City of Zion, after running smoothly on TestNet for over six months, got elected as the new consensus node. City of Zion (CoZ) is an independent, international group of open source developers working on NEO blockchain. As decentralization kicks off, so do the possibilities of actually achieving a global smart economy.

In conclusion, the above three reasons are just a few that should prompt any wise trader to buy some NEO as we wait for the next bull run. You can decide to go long on the project and coin by holding for a year or two, or you can set a profit level to achieve then cash out during the coming bull run.

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…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

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…
