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.

Tipping platform

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.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
