NEO is a distributed network for the Smart Economy. It was produced to establish a scalable network of decentralized applications. The blockchain network supports a lot of high-level programming languages, thus, making it possess unique features that are capable of enabling it to become one of the best blockchain networks in a smart economy.

Nevertheless, even though NEO is decentralized and a very scalable network, its price has dipped in the market. Last month (July) its price decreased considerably to $42 per coin. More so, at the time of writing (as of August 2nd), the price has further dipped down to $28.21.

NEO, however, occupies the NO. 13TH position due to its market capitalization ($1,834,648,975). It is important to know that it is one of the most traded altcoins in the crypto market today. Even though NEO is at the price mark of $28.33 at the moment, the team behind it is working tirelessly to make sure it becomes a notable altcoin.

NEO Upcoming Changes and Developments

Recently, NEO stated that it would start an AMA on August 2nd. The two men behind NEO, Da Hongfei, and Erik Zhang, stated that the start of the new Reddit AMA is the beginning of a new era for the blockchain network since its community is growing really fast. NEO users can come up with their questions during the AMA session, this undoubtedly is a step that shows the NEO team has confidence and vision for their product. NEO team will start answering the questions starting tomorrow, 3 August.

Moreover, questions are rising about the NeonExchange – a decentralized exchange network that is powered by NEO. The exchange hasn’t been entirely active as a result of the regulations surrounding it, and most Dapps developers want this to be cleared before the ICO of NEX coins is launched.

Many individuals have voiced their opinion about this, but adequate measures are being planned at the moment, and the community would be briefed on this very soon.

Furthermore, other upcoming developments include the launch of NEO Name Service, which was produced by the NEO’s largest community in China, NEL. The NEO Name Service will help in the production of NEO’s addresses that are compatible with real-life.

NEL is also making plans to develop an NEO-based hardware wallet known as NEODUN.  Another accomplishment of this NEO’s Chinese community is its collaboration with Trueblocks (a South Korea-based accelerator and market development team dedicated to Korea’s crypto market) to help foster NEO blockchain in the Korean cryptocurrency markets.

Additionally, NEO aims to foster a smart economy, and in doing so, it recently partnered with Certik (an official verification platform for smart contracts and blockchain ecosystem). This partnership aims to boost security and verify NEO’s digital assets and identity.

NEO recorded an increase in the number of transactions which were seen as spams. The blockchain network has highlighted its community the two parameters: MaxTransactionsPerBlock and MaxFreeTransactionsperblock. These parameters are measures recently created to protect NEO from too many transactions that may be malicious to it.

Also, the platform has advised that,

Sending transaction with fee will be recommended. It’s easy and effective. The amount of transaction fee depends on how fast you need to get transactions confirmed by blockchain. In general, one satoshi gas will be enough.”

Some last words

NEO is also considering supporting an upcoming hackathon event in Latin America. The blockchain network has said in a Twitter post that the event will be held 3rd and 4th of August in Santiago, Chile. These and many more are coming up on NEO’S platform, but will these events reflect on its price? Well, as things stand, it seems these will. Let’s hope for the greenish NEO run ahead.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
