Excellent and unusual events have occurred in the cryptocurrency market in the early part of this year. Events like the surge and sharp decline in the market with cryptocurrencies such as Tron (TRX) overhauling FUD and also Zilliqa (ZIL) been introduced have astonished lots of investors. It is also important to know that another event that has occurred is the emergence of IOSToken (IOST), an ERC20 coin, which is becoming the greatest answer to the Internet of Service. This project, IOSToken was created on top of the Ethereum Network.
However, these projects or digital-coins are becoming great competitors to Ethereum. For this reason, we would take a detailed look at why IOSToken (IOST), Zilliqa (ZIL), and Tron (TRX) are the top-picks as the third-quarter of the year is right around the corner.
All about IOST
One of the recent events that have hit the crypto-world is the introduction of IOSToken. The digital coin makes use of a technology called the Efficient Distributed Sharding (EDS). EDS helps to develop scalability which distinctively partitions the IOS network into sub-spaces through a sophisticated process. Most of the times, this blockchain is referred to “the scalable network that works.”
Subsequently, lots of investors have embraced the IOST project, and the token has a current market cap of $181,553,400. The main aim of the project is to create a safe and scalable network for smart services. Although the blockchain network has not been implemented fully, when completed, its ecosystem could host lots of services and serve different businesses that have not been feasible.
IOSToken is the main crypto of a decentralized platform known as the Internet of Services. Also, IOSToken is more like an ecosystem that helps enhance the transaction of goods and services. As the clock keeps ticking, this platform is attracting lots of developers to build better services for the enhancement of the blockchain ecosystem.
Finally, IOS itself targets to offer about 100,000 transactions per second, and once it’s actualized, the cryptocurrency will make it the forefront blockchain in the crypto-world.
An abstract look at Tron (TRX) and Zilliqa (ZIL)
Tron (TRX) and Zilliqa (ZIL) are both great projects, but each strives towards different goals. Tron, on the one hand, has its purpose of decentralizing the web via its blockchain, and also to become a topnotch project for Decentralized Apps. Tron has also set its goals in becoming the most secure and steady cryptocurrency and also to reclaim a spot in the top 6 cryptocurrencies in the market.
On the other side, Zilliqa has its own goal, and that is to transform the manner in which smart contracts are written through the use of a programming language known as Scilla. The digital currency also aims to enhance the use of the sharding model to better the way in which trading gets done in the crypto-market.
Reasons why these three cryptocurrencies are the top picks in Q3 of the Year
Scalability issues solved
Ethereum has achieved great strides in the crypto-world today, but Zilliqa, Tron, and IOSToken should be the top choice in the third-quarter of this year. There are some very good reasons to back that. First of all, this is due to the fact that the issue of scalability is still a big problem that Ethereum hasn’t solved.
Due to this big glitch, Zilliqa and IOSToken introduced sharding, which is a way of dividing the mining platforms into simpler shards so that trades can be done similarly. With the IOSToken shards, EDS (Efficient Distributed Sharding) network was introduced which makes the platform resilient.
Native blockchains, Mainnets launched by these platforms
We all know that Tron (TRX) has released its Mainnet, and now even the token migration on all major exchanges is done. On the other hand, Zilliqa will also release its very own MainNet in the third-quarter of the year, September 30th, 2018 is the planned release date.
IOST MainNet is still being constructed (Testnet is live, already) but it is projected that it will come sooner than later. The MainNets developed by all these platforms will be on their feet at the scheduled dates in the third-quarter of the year. Each of the digital coin’s Mainnet completion means more trust, userbase, transaction volume and a better chance of mass adoption – which certainly makes them cool bets.
Small businesses support
Tron, Zilliqa, and IOSToken are excellent platforms that support SMEs. For instance, IOSToken has what we call “Hyper Universe Distributed System” (HUDS) that assist the platform to support different kinds of service providers. On this platform, users can keep their information on different nodes in the network. With this, a small business can monetize and do daily transactions.
Finally, with lots of investors on board on these platforms, there is something distinct about them. Probably, it could be the way in which each of them tries to improve and advance as blockchain turn out to be more conventional regarding the transaction of goods and services – at least all of them boast of scalability to be where they are today.

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…
