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.

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.
