How IOTA (MIOTA) is Becoming a Solid Investment In the Long Run




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.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes




While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level




Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
