At this point, it’s pretty clear that Blockchain technology has a potential to change the world as we know it. Already, there exist Blockchain applications that are testing out different innovations built on this revolutionary technology. In fact, a new report from Deloitte (an audit and consulting firm) indicates that Blockchain technology is set to be a critical ingredient in building consumer packaged goods. Basically, the report illustrates that there are over 50 use cases where Blockchain’s potential in the consumer packaged goods will have the most impact and that we might just be at the precipice of Blockchain becoming the operational standard of financial, consumer and manufacturing industries.
Invest in Blockchain or fail
With that in mind, it seems like the next five years are set to be a tipping point for most industries. The report further mentions that it’s a high time for businesses to start integrating this nascent technology into their systems or risk failing altogether.
Obviously, there is no need to re-invent the wheel. Already there are innovative solutions in the crypto space waiting for businesses to come onboard and build their own Blockchains with tailor-made business strategies depending on a variety of objectives. One such Blockchain platform that contains all the necessary tools and software for businesses to built supply chain platforms, smart contracts for high-quality money integration systems is Stellar Lumens.
Is Stellar the future of Blockchain?
Well, if you are talking in terms of connecting bank payments and building Blockchain enabled systems that move money quickly across borders while also allowing developers to build custom API; then you have to put Stellar in the picture. Stellar is an affordable alternative for businesses that want to integrate Blockchain technology into their systems.
With Stellar Lumens, you can send money across borders at almost no cost and within the shortest time frame. In fact, you can easily bypass costly forex exchange fees as the Stellar platform is built to accommodate different currencies as well. Instead of the usual 3 to 5 business days, you can transact within seconds thanks to stellar decentralized network.
In case you want to integrate Stellar’s Blockchain network into your own and configure the system with a customized decentralized network, it gets even easier as stellar avails all the tools your developers will need for free. Yes, that’s right; Stellar offers tools and software not to mention adequate documentation for integration of Blockchain into your system at no cost.
Stellar eradicating poverty
Basically, Stellar’s mission is to connect people to affordable financial services as a move to fight poverty and increase the potential of individuals across the globe. The platform is run by a non-stock nonprofit organization that covers its operational costs with 5 percent of the Stellar Lumens XLM coins and tax-deductible donations from the public.
In the long run, when it’s all said and done, businesses will have to adopt Blockchain technology so as to be able to provide the most efficient service to the consumer. As it seems, Blockchain technology is already at the forefront of creating efficiency in a variety of industries. Businesses that integrate Blockchain technology will not only be able to offer quality service at the lowest cost but will also increase transparency and accountability in their systems.

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…
