Ion, although ranked below the top 100 cryptocurrencies, more specifically taking the 166th spot on the global coin ranking list, has shown some astonishing results at the beginning of January when this currency managed to reach a price of over 7$ per one unit. However, the most recent market dip didn’t leave ION out of the hurricane of dropping prices, so this coin is now dealing over 3 times lower than it did 8 weeks ago. Yesterday, at the end of March and the beginning of April, the majority of currencies tried to step out of the whirlpool of frequent losses so we have witnessed a massive wave of rises about 12 hours ago. However, once again the market is plummeting. What we are interested in at this point, given the fact that ION is still dealing at a fairly high price for its ranking, is to find out what is the purpose of Ionomy and can this model of economy push ION further towards being widely accepted?

Ion and Ionomy                

For those who are still not familiar with the main objective behind the currency known as Ion (ION), this digital asset is into promoting the gaming industry that way creating its own little crypto universe that can also be categorized as “gamers’ oasis”. If you are a gamer and you still haven’t heard of ION, it is probably time for you to check this crypto out as ION  is worth over 2$ per one unit at the current moment and you can earn while you are playing games on Ion platform.

Winning games and answering to even toughest levels is rewarding enough by itself if you are a true gamer, but earning while winning sounds even tempting. Thanks to Ion and Ionomy, many gamers’ dream is turned into a (digital) reality. Speaking of the crypto universe, Ion does not only have an entire gaming platform tailored for gamers around the globe but also own its own economy, cleverly named Ionomy.

Ionomy thus represents Ion’s internal economy driven and powered by ION currency that serves the purpose of being spent, exchanged and earned through different rewarding protocols. Within the Ionomy project, all gamers can earn rewards given in form of ION coins. The coins they earn through winning games on Ion platform can be spent, used or exchanged for any fiat value or currency, so the reward winners immediately become indisputable owners of the won coins and they are entitled of spending the earned ION units.

In order to gain the access to the platform, you need to invest in ION currency, but since there are no limitations you are able to make micro-investments which will also grant you access to Ion and Ionomy protocols.

With the unique model of blockchain-based decentralized economy that operates internally within Ion’s blockchain, ION is said to be a pretty promising coin although it is ranked far beyond top 100 currencies predicting that its value may rise back up to its all-time high of around 7$, which would also contribute to having this digital value climbing higher up the ladder of success.

Ion and the New Partnership

Probably thanks to having Ionomy as a pretty rewarding and interesting model of the internal blockchain-based economy, this digital asset has acquired a new partnership. The team behind Ion partnered up with Kasey Kahne, which is a pretty big deal for ION as Kasey is one of the most famous icons in the world of racing.

Supporting the idea of Ionomy, Kasey Kahne decided to partner up with Ion, which will most certainly sky-rocket ION’s value in the following months. The reason to believe that Ion is more likely to start rising in the price again is backed up by the fact that Kahne is not only able to draw in  more gamers to Ion’s platform and Ionomy, but can also represent a significant link between a cryptocurrency and the sports industry, which would be a huge deal for Ion.

The team behind ION seems to have made a perfect choice when they decided to go for the gaming industry as this branch is worth more and more every year, having been added another 7% of growth to its already lavishing revenues of over 100 billion dollars per year.

If only a piece of this industry’s revenue would to flow into the world of ION and Ionomy, the price of ION coins would inevitably grow as a consequence. That is why the partnership between Ion and Kahne could push Ion into the market of the gaming in industry and sports industry alike. In case you add the fact that Ionomy has a protocol of rewarding gamers who are winning games on their platform, there are plenty of reasons to believe that Ion might even grow beyond its all-time high in the following months.

Ion Gets Listed on another Exchange

Probably the best thing about the partnership between the currency and Kasey Kahne is the fact that ION got listed on Bitfinex. By heaving Bitfinex listing Ion along with other cryptos on their list, it is most certainly predictable that Ion will now be able to acquire higher liquidity and become more available and easily attainable.

As a consequence, its price might experience frequent rises in the following months as the novelties are slowly unraveling. The best thing about having ION listed on Bitfinex is that now this currency might draw more serious investors who will appreciate the fact that Ion is being noticed and acknowledged as a currency worthy of attention. Sounds like a definite HODL material, right?

How is Ion doing at the Current Moment?

The market is acting tough on cryptocurrencies once again as the majority of coins are plummeting in price. Ion is no exception on the first day of April in 2018, so this currency is currently trading in the red.

After the most recent change in the market, ION started to trade in the red when this coin fell by -2.83% in the course of 24 hours. However, since Bitcoin and other currencies are dropping as well, Ion is trading in the green and going up against BTC for 2.67% at the moment of this writing and can be bought for 2.09$ per one unit.

Even though the market is acting unstable for the last two months for the majority of cryptocurrencies, it is obvious that Ion will most certainly collect the fruits of the newly developed partnership in the following months, which will most probably result in having ION sky-rocketing in its price.

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…

Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns

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.
