IOTA, a somewhat unique coin, given the fact that this currency is operating in a block-less environment, is working on tech improvements when it comes to DLT, Tangle and the Internet of Things. IOTA is ready for the next phase in its operational lifetime, so the team is working on enabling what might end up being the top leader in DLT network and the Internet of Things, which could lead to a near mass or mass expansion of this coin. IOTA has shown some downfalls in its value in the past few days when it even dropped down below the 1$ price, however, we see it going up in the long run with the newly acquired partnership and the technological potential of Tangle.
IOTA and Distributed Ledger Technology
Distributed Ledger was introduced to the public way back with the introduction of Bitcoin as the first decentralized blockchain-based currency that started operating with safe and secure transactions that were also supposed to have a unique trait of ultimate privacy for all users. However, later on, as the blockchain technology was slowly expanding and being further developed, it was determined that Bitcoin as the first currency of this kind still had some issues, mainly revolving around privacy where it was determined that Bitcoin is not as private as it was originally thought.
DLT technology remained as a perfect opportunity to make various operations easier to be processed than it is at the current moment and with the existing technology. That is how IOTA comes into the story thanks to its block-less network called Tangle.
DLT could easily find a mass application of its potentials in the government institutions, corporate and different types of institutions while owning the ability to help with administration, more efficient tax collection, issuing passport and legal documentation, collecting data, creating records, keeping personal info, distribute information and much more, all by using blockchain technology.
Tangle is thought to possess the needed technological quality to be able to get the best out of DLT and the Internet of Things, which are considered to be the future of the way people are operating with data. Given the fact that IOTA’s Tangle seems to be the perfect network for the Internet of Things and the Internet of Value, it is a thought in general that IOTA combined with Directed Acrylic Graph in Tangle and alongside DLT will most possibly be used as a driving force behind IoT and IoV. Where there is a potential, there is also a possibility, so it is certain that IOTA does have the needed technology in order to support DLT and move forward to the next level.
IOTA and Partnership with Fujitsu’s Rolf Werner
IOTA has made an excellent business move when the team behind the Tangle decided to partner up with Rolf Werner. They have added Mr. Werner, who was previously working for Fujitsu, to the IOTA team where his job is to take care of IOTA’s operations and activities in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany.
This move also showcases the readiness of the team to work on the expansion of their coin and the technology behind their block-less network. Earlier, the team also had a great addition to their board of advisors when Johann Jungwirth, the CDO of Volkswagen, joined IOTA.
On this matter, Werner stated that the possibilities that IOTA’s Tangle has with DLT are immense as decentralization and blockchain-based secure and safe applications are made possible. He further added that Tangle and IOTA go beyond “machine-to-machine” payments, where it is capable for much more. He used the example of secure identity management, adding that there are numerous features that make IOTA a superb piece of decentralized technology.
That being said, it suddenly becomes more than possible to have IOTA progress further with an increased pace of growth, both in the technical sense and in the terms of the market value.
How is IOTA doing at the Current Moment?
Even though IOTA fell below the 1$ price during the previous change in the market with over -4% of drop against the dollar, it seems that this coin is feeling a lot better today as we can once again see MIOTA trading in the green.
After the latest change in the market, MIOTA started to recover while gaining 1.70% of raise against the dollar, which means that MIOTA is without any doubt going up and beyond the value of 1$.
With the latest change, this coin managed to get back to the value of 1$ per one unit, and it even went a bit beyond the 1$ price, which means that MIOTA is currently being traded at the price of 1.04$ with a solid good chance of acquiring additional gains in the following days.
In addition to going up against the dollar, MIOTA is also experiencing rises against BTC, going up against Bitcoin for 1.97%, which means that MIOTA is currently doing better than BTC on the market.
Back in December of 2017, MIOTA managed to rise up to its record price of a bit over 5$ per one unit. However, the coin fell down due to a bad situation in the market during the period of the excessive market dip that went on for 8 weeks. In case IOTA manages to live up to all expectations, it might soon be able to get back to the point of dealing at 5$ per one coin and beyond, making it a pretty solid investment in the long run.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.
Cryptocurrencies are already making a huge difference around the world. Citizens of Venezuela, a country devastated by rampant inflation, have been using several cryptocurrencies…
Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
