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.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
