How Stable Is NEO at the Moment?

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.

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

Ripple

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
