With a relatively stable Bitcoin (BTC) comes the possibility of the rest of our favorite coins and tokens to exhibit some profitable gains. Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading at $6.749 and looks like testing the $7,000 resistance level very soon. This means that the total crypto market capitalization might also go above $300 Billion from the current levels of $276 Billion.
It is with such optimism of a healthy crypto market, that it might be time to reconsider getting some Litecoin (LTC) while the price is relatively low. The digital asset that is sometimes called Bitcoin’s little brother, is currently trading at $88 and up 2.81% in the last 24 hours. LTC has not been at these levels since late November last year. The coin might have bottomed out on June 29th this year, when it was valued at around $74.
The last crypto rally in late December last year and early January this year, found Litecoin doing tremendously well above $300 with a peak value of $364 on December 19th, 2017.
But will it really reach those levels again?
One promising indicator that Litecoin and the entire crypto markets might be headed for another rally, is the recent announcement by Coinbase to offer secure crypto storage to high net individuals and hedge funds who want to start investing in cryptocurrencies. This new service has been dubbed Coinbase Custody and so far supports the 5 coins that are supported by the exchange: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC).
This means that LTC will be a choice for the high net individuals and institutional investors willing to use Coinbase’s services. As a result, LTC will be bought and held in bulk leading to a reduction of the general circulating supply as well as an increase in value as demand continues to grow.
Coinbase CEO showed his excitement with regards to the new service when he tweeted the following:
It is clear that there is a lot of bullish sentiment not only within the organization of Coinbase but as well as on Wallstreet through the numerous hedge funds and the high net individuals who simply want to buy and HODL for speculation purposes. LTC will be one of the 5 digital assets available for them thus giving the coin the much-needed exposure.

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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
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.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
