The crypto market continues its struggle to reach stability and to improve on the prices on digital currencies, and with the recent price increase led by Bitcoin (BTC), many have started looking into altcoins worthy of investment. Today, we will discuss why buying NEO right now might be the right choice for any aspiring crypto investor.

Crypto market active once again

It is the first week of August, and crypto investors are still trying to figure out what is the best altcoin to devote themselves to. July has ended with an indication of a bull run, led by a sudden increase in Bitcoin’s price, and the leading crypto went up by $2,000 in only a few short days. This has led many other currencies to follow along, NEO being among them as well.

Soon after, Bitcoin’s sudden rise stopped, but that doesn’t mean that this situation will stick, and it is more than possible that the price surge might continue in August. Currently, a lot of cryptos are in the green, with NEO, once again, being one of them. So, obviously, the market has seen quite a lot of activity recently, and the new excitement regarding the top altcoins has arrived.

It seems that the market can finally drop its bearish attitude for the first time since January if we ignore the false alarm that happened in mid-May.

So, why is NEO the right choice?

One of the biggest reasons why you should go for NEO in this time of change and possible recovery is the way that NEO has been acting prior to this year’s bearish market. Back in the day, when the crypto prices went on a true rise, NEO managed to hit $187, which was its record, and it came just before the market drop in January. If it weren’t for the constantly bearish market, NEO’s price could have survived the first wave of price drops. Its value even managed to hold on to a decent price for over a month of price drops, which was seen in mid-February, when it was still quite good, at $144 per coin.

However, the market remained bearish for over half a year, and by May, NEO dropped below $100. Many expected that this is as low as it can get and that the situation will surely take a turn for the better soon. However, they were disappointed when NEO dropped to $29 by the end of June. Such a low price was last seen back in November of the last year, and the investors thought that this is surely NEO’s bottom. A little over a month later, NEO has dropped again, but only slightly, and many would argue that the current price of $28.05 might indeed be as low as it could get.

So, obviously, NEO has been performing more than well under the proper conditions. If the market can truly shed its bearish skin, then this crypto might skyrocket once again, especially with its popularity in the eastern part of the world.

The second big reason why buying NEO is a good idea includes its platform’s efforts to reach decentralization. Exactly a month ago, on July 4th, a new announcement came from the NEO Foundation, claiming that the new consensus nodes are to be elected. This will effectively start a completely new, decentralized era for NEO. City of Zion’s candidate node got elected after running without issues on the NEO TestNet for over half a year.

Now, the CoZ is working on NEO’s blockchain, and it might bring a lot of positive changes to the way this crypto works. With an ultimate goal being to reach the global smart economy, NEO has a large potential to change the world, and the only thing it needs to do is the trust of its investors and supporters. NEO has proven that it can survive, change, adapt, and try to achieve the best version of itself, even when the market is constantly unfriendly towards it.

This is truly one of the few cryptos worthy of trust and support, and every effort to help it achieve its goal is sure to be returned, as soon as the right conditions are met.

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.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
