The crypto market has been critical so far, as most of the gains recorded by the currencies have been reversed in the past few months. With Bitcoin’s price dropping by a huge margin, the market has become incredibly volatile. Tracking the price movements, this year has been a profitable year for altcoins, and NEO certainly features among the top gainers in the market.

With the entire crypto market recovering from a price slump, there hasn’t been any positive momentum in the market so far, and any occasional uptrend is dragged down right away. Despite all the price volatility, NEO’s price has recorded some positive moment.  The rising altcoin, which ranks 11 by market capitalization, is moving towards the $60.00 price level, but it’s hard to determine whether it is safe to invest in NEO at the moment. If you are wondering whether the coin has gained stability in the market, here’s a brief insight into the latest developments on the blockchain.

NEO, A Step Towards Smart Economy

With cryptocurrencies being integrated into several notable projects, the blockchain technology has become a talking point in the market. As the platform of the new internet, NEO specializes in all the significant aspects of the blockchain technology – Dapps, ICOs, and smart contracts. The crypto project which utilizes digital identity to digitize financial assets serves as a medium for automating the management of these assets with the help of smart contracts, fostering a “smart economy” based on the distributed financial network.

As the building block of a smart economy, NEO offers digitized financial assets, with each asset containing proof of ownership in the blockchain. Quite naturally, the digital assets can be sold, traded, and leveraged through smart contracts, while the ownership of the assets can be secured and regulated through the decentralized protocol. In the highly volatile world of digital currency, anonymity is at the forefront of any major technological advancement.

To comply with the regulatory standards, NEO aims to provide digital identities based on PKI or Public Key Infrastructure. NEO, which has partnered with THEKEY, will provide users with secure digital identification.

Upgrades on the NEO Network

Looking at the events in the past few months, NEO has witnessed some interesting developments on the blockchain. To begin with, NEO based Switcheo Exchange announced completing integration with ledger hardware wallet devices.  Although the integration has already taken place, the development team is holding off the operation s of Switcheo’s new smart contract due to certain technical improvement on the NEO blockchain. As per the statement issued by NEO, users can now trade with Switcheo and Ledger smoothly following the instructions released by the team.

Speaking of further developments, the blockchain has also released the development report for May 2018 on Medium, besides publishing an interview with Robbie Wang, the overseas community operations manager at NewEconolabs recording the upcoming NEO Name Service domain project. The most talked-about event, however, is Alchemist’s announcement of issuing a Stablecoin on the NEO Blockchain. Considering the competition of the stablecoin market, such a move has raised many eyebrows.  Apart from Tether, the most vied-after stablecoin in the market, there’s TrueUSD, which recently gained momentum. With Tether’s USDT and TrueUSD lighting things up in the stablecoin world, Alchemist’ s decision of introducing a stablecoin on the NEO market is definitely something to watch out for.

NEO and the Market

As evident from the price charts of the last few months, the market is recovering from a major bear run. Given the price volatility in the market, a positive momentum is unlikely to befall soon. As for NEO’s price, a sudden dip to $57 made investors nervous last week. Much to the traders’ relief, the concern was short-lived. The coin has recently reached $57 price level, recording a 1.47% move over the last 24 hours. Although the coin is trading in the red, it has seen a positive change of $9.68 over the last 7 days. With a market capitalization of $3,534,056,500, NEO is available to the traders at $54.37 at the time of writing. As the crypto market expands to include a host of new currencies, investors are at a loss when it comes to choosing a suitable investment option. NEO, which has evolved over the last few months to become a pioneer in the field of cryptocurrency, has come a long way from its ICO days. At any rate, going by the prospects of the blockchain project, NEO can be the ultimate game-changer in 2018.

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…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

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.
