There is no doubt that we are on the precipice of change with the advent of Blockchain technology. In fact, top technology influencers such as Mark Andreessen (a renowned investor in software companies) have called Blockchain technology the most important innovation since the beginning of the internet.
But could Blockchain itself as it paves the way for the internet of value when top cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are still struggling with the issue of scalability and interoperability.
Perhaps, it is cryptocurrencies such as ReddCoin that could be the game changer especially considering the backing of a Proof of Stake Velocity protocol on its Blockchain network. A Blockchain network that allows for inclusivity with the low barrier to entry on the mining side of the equation could be the catalyst to the internet of value. This is precisely what Redd coin is all about.
What is ReddCoin’s Proof of Stake Velocity?
The proof of stake velocity is designed as an alternative to both proof of stake and proof of work algorithms.
Basically, it is built such that activity (velocity) and ownership (stake) are encouraged on the network, therefore, enabling the ReddCoin to serves two purposes; a store of value and a currency.
Furthermore, it eliminates wastage of electricity during mining as experienced by other algorithms such as Proof of Work on Bitcoin’s Blockchain network.
How is this helpful towards an internet of value?
Well, glad you asked. Since Blockchain is built to cut out the middleman by distributing storage and validation of valuable assets (cryptocurrency, tokens or valuable digital assets and information) ReddCoin‘s POSV protocol is democratizing the Blockchain by ensuring less wastage in the mining sector and as a result improve affordability in mining and while building a democratic system of governance on any Blockchain.
Other additional features that enable Redd coin to be at the forefront of an internet of value include its Tipping platform that is creating a decentralized system for social services and payments like never before.
Basically, with ReddCoin’s tipping platform, users can distribute their ReddCoin equitably to other users either giving the coins to miners, investors of an IPCO or even tipping to their friends and family. By this virtue, Redd coin is developing a robust communal base that will form a functional internet of value soon.
Redd Coin’s Web ID making it easy to spend crypto
Another revolutionary feature that puts Redd coin at the forefront of the development of the internet of value is the Web ID that it offers. With Web ID, Reddcoin users can use their username or a simple sentence to tip and spend their cryptocurrencies on any device as long as they have the Web ID.
That does not only make it easy for the mainstream public to take up the use of cryptocurrency but also eliminated the hurdles and complexities that are currently preventing scalability and mass adoption in the crypto space.

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…
