Here’s Why You’d Be Foolish To Ignore Stellar (XLM)

Published

on

Stellar

Stellar (XLM) is trading at less than $0.33 a piece. At the start of January, the same coin went for more than $0.85. That’s a collapse of 61% in around four weeks. This is far from XLM-specific, of course – the wider crypto markets have taken a similar (and, in many cases, a more pronounced) hit.

Of those coins that have corrected, however, a handful are set to take off once the market turns around.

And for us, Stellar’s Lumen is one of this bunch of winners.

When it comes to valuing a cryptocurrency, markets are pretty heavily divided. The aggregation sites normally list by market cap but we all know that this is pretty useless since all a coin has to do to increase its market cap is to increase supply. We’re not trading equities here, where a market will revalue to accommodate a fresh injection of shares, we’re talking crypto.

What we like to base our valuation on is a combination of three inputs.

The first, the team behind the coin. The second, the real world use cases of the coin and/or the technology with which it’s associated. The third, the community.

So, against these metrics, how does Lumen perform?

Well, we wouldn’t be discussing it here if it didn’t score highly on each point, but let’s get a little more specific.

First, the team.

The guy to focus on here is Jed McCaleb, who is listed as a ‘Stellar Developer’ on the company’s about section of its website. He’s much more than that, however. He founded the Stellar Development Foundation having left Ripple (XLM), which he also founded and (and this is something many people don’t know) he also founded Mt. Gox. Sure, Mt. Gox is now something of a black spot on crypto history, but at its peak, it was the number one entity in the space and McCaleb was no longer involved at the point when things started to go bad.

In other words, he’s been involved in two of the biggest projects in crypto before he created his third, Stellar.

The advisory board is just as strong. Patrick Collison CEO of Stripe; Matt Mullenweg, Founder of WordPress.com; Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator; and Naval Ravikant, Founder of AngelList all feature in advisory roles.

That’s the board, what about the real world use cases?

Well, this is where Stellar is leagues ahead of some of its peers. It’s essentially doing what bitcoin set out to do – bring a decentralized payment network into the mainstream that connects people to low-cost financial services. It’s crypto for the unbanked but also crypto for the banked that don’t want banks. An everyman’s crypto.

Finally, the community.

You’ve only got to take a look at the primary social channels to get a feel for the incredible community that’s behind this one. Close to 70,000 users follow the company’s SubReddit. The company has 200,000 followers on Twitter. And these guys and girls are very active in the community’s they represent.

To bring all this together, in XLM you’ve got a coin that fuels a technology that has the potential to finally bring to the table what bitcoin and others have tried (and so far failed) to, led by a team of industry leaders and incumbents, all of which is supported by hundreds of thousand strong community of enthusiasts – many of which hold XLM as representative of their support.

When this market turns, and it will, the coins that check each of these boxes are going to be not just the short-term winners but the long-term growth coins of the sector.

Don’t ignore XLM right now.

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
