There are constant technological and innovation-oriented evolutions taking place in the crypto market.
EthereumClassic has successfully managed to place itself as one of the primary testimonies of the technological progress in 2018. The team behind ETC has managed to adjust their visions and goals in accordance with the evolving interests of the growing crypto-community. Richard Schumann, the latest addition to the team, has taken the charge of enhancing the graphics, in order to make sure that several owners and users of the coin are not inconvenienced during dealing with the various ETC ventures.

- Emerald Platform
- Areas of investment
In 2018, the work of the Ethereum Classic Cooperative (ECC)will make the entire platform of the Ethereum Classic go through a drastic transformation. The ECC has set the agenda of upgrading the ETC protocol in a way that the platform emerges as the best for the purpose of sharing value and information. ETC has the potential to be a leading market player in the domain of virtual economy. This explains the platform’s instinctive and flexible Smart Contracts going to be the standard for everything related to the Internet of Things.
The ETC foundation works with the belief that a proper development of the ETC and its platform is rooted in the following three areas – Ethereum Classic marketing, protocol enhancement, and community programs. The goal of the ECC is to expedite development by supervising every facet of the blockchain. Hence ECC has set up regulations to arrange for ETC capital across all these areas.
The ETCDEV has set the agenda for working on a new project in 2018. It involves the deployment of sidechain as a native component of ETC protocols and infrastructure to offer scalability and bring ETC to IOT. The developers of Ethereum Classic are focused on ensuring that the sidechains are highly flexible.The positive news is that the sidechains of the ETC will enable transactions at a nonexistent fee. The flexibility will be such that the sidechains can be either public or private. Devices running on low power can also make use of the sidechains.

The ETCDEV team has developed the next generation of EVM.It is a distinctly embeddable EVM, which is well-synced with many kinds of Ethereum blockchains and with Internet Of Things(IoT).ETCDEV plans to work on further upgradations like parallel execution, Just-In-Time assemblage for EVM bytecode, optimization for various types of hardware architectures.
There was recent confirmation from the team that the emerald wallet development is a work in progress. The current testing proves that the wallet can harmonize to the ETC network in a time span of a minute. While price fluctuations are a matter of serious concern, Pyskell who is one of the leading ETC coders is dedicated to unraveling the effects of these turbulences, so that the value of the currency can witness an upsurge but in a stable manner. All these aforementioned developments are bound to strengthen Ethereum Classic. The team at Ethereum Classic has a clear idea for consolidating the future of the coin.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
