IOTA is finally trading in the green while going up against the dollar as the market is finally showing some improvement. As of the latest change in the last 2 hours, the majority of currencies are going up, while MIOTA makes no exception. However, we are more interested in the list of all the partnerships IOTA has acquired during the previous period, realizing that all of the sealed partnership were actually strategic. So, after getting its own IOTA charging station for electric vehicles in the Netherlands a couple of weeks ago IOTA is now working on new goals.

IOTA and the Auto Industry

Going above TRON during the massive rebound in April, IOTA has reached the spot of the 9th-best currency in accordance with global coin ranking list and due to its market capitalization. During its rebound, IOTA even managed to have its first IOTA charging station for electric vehicles set up for active operation in the Netherlands, which contributed to the mass adoption and showcased one of the real-life purposes that match the technological capabilities of MIOTA’s network, Tangle.

However, this is not the end of the story of mass adoption and real-life use of decentralized ecosystems, as IOTA has made some remarkable partnership in the previous period, that way making its strategic move towards its next plan.

Having been partnered up with companies like Volkswagen and Porsche, which are both automotive magnums, IOTA is making room for having its technology reaching the industry of automotive and electric vehicles.

With Tangle, IOTA has a plan to enable easy and simple, cost-effective connectivity between machines, creating decentralized machine-to-machine communication which would be driven by MIOTA.

In this case scenario, machine-to-machine communication model would serve the purpose of connecting your vehicle to your computing system in order to achieve better driving performance and get the most out of your vehicle.

That way, IOTA can create decentralized applications that serve the purpose of preventing car crashes and accidents on the road, simply and easily by using the technological capabilities of Tangle, which is a superb and fast decentralized ecosystem, although with a different infrastructure when compared to other platforms.

With Tangle, IOTA goes beyond traditionally known blockchain- based platforms but makes up for its own industry while being connected to the Internet of Things, considering it the future model of business ventures and industry collusion.

IOTA, partnered up with massive auto companies, can even establish a transfer system that would serve the purpose of paying for different services and products, all through your vehicle.

This could be easily done with Tangle, given the fact that IOTA can successfully perform machine-to-machine communication, which is probably the main reason why these auto giants were interested in partnering up with IOTA in the first place.

Besides from Porsche, Volkswagen, and IOTA, 30 more companies related to the auto industry have joined the movement called Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (Mobi), with the purpose of presenting connectivity resolutions for machine-to-machine communication in the auto industry, all supported by Tangle.

This alliance could most probably sky-rocket IOTA while presenting it to its real-life purpose.

How is IOTA doing at the Current Moment?

April was pretty benevolent to MIOTA as this currency managed to acquire a pretty smooth rebound, while it also launched first crypto charging station for electric vehicles and sealing very important partnerships within the auto industry.

With May 13th, the market trend also seems to be changing as we can see the majority of currencies moving up.

Holding onto the spot of the 9th-best currency, MIOTA is also going up against the dollar today while trading in the green.

Following the latest change in the market after a week-long trend of plummeting, MIOTA has gone up by 4.43% against the dollar in the last 24 hours.

In addition to collecting gains against this fiat currency, MIOTA is also going up against Bitcoin, while trading in the green and rising up by 2.40% against this crypto.

After the latest change in the market, MIOTA can now be traded at the price of 1.91$ per one unit. With this pace of growth, it is realistic to expect to see MIOTA reaching and breaking through the value of 2$ per one unit in the following days. However, this case might be postponed in case the market turns sluggish again.

IOTA made its record price of around 5.20$ per one unit back at the end of December of 2017 when it was predicted that the current year of 2018 would be THE year for cryptocurrencies, which isn’t far from the truth if you take a close look at how far certain assets have gone.

Coinbase is one of the largest and most popular cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. However, throughout its existence, it was very picky when it comes to which coin it will adopt. So much so, that it has become a very large achievement to get support by the exchange.

Recently, however, Coinbase has decided to act on its users’ wishes and expand its list of accepted coins. In theory, this was a big deal, and the exchange actually started looking into a lot of coins. However, it only adopted a few of them. Right now, Coinbase is supporting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, USD Coin, Basic Attention Token, and 0x.

Even so, Coinbase wishes to add more of them, but only after it ensured that the coins are a part of legitimate, non-controversial projects. As a result, the entire crypto community started speculating about which coins will be added next. This will also be something that we will try to answer today, by listing three projects that are the most probable candidates.

3. EOS

EOS or Ethereum On Steroids, as some like to call it, is a more than a decent project that has made headlines multiple times this year due to its progress. It managed to launch its own MainNet, which made it perfect for dApp development and smart contract creation. This makes it similar to ETH, but many…

What Will It Take For Bitcoin (BTC) To Rise Again?

It is no secret that 2018 has been a terrible year for cryptocurrencies when it comes to their value. Things looked so bright during the first few days of this year, with Bitcoin hitting $20,086 per coin, and every altcoin reaching new heights. However, it was not to last, and soon enough, the market crashed, and prices went down.

What followed was months and months of a heavily bearish market that kept pushing the prices further and further down. It prevented any attempt of recovery, although several of them gave it their best shot.

Despite a situation like this, crypto investors never forgot the potential of Bitcoin, and many have been predicting another bull run that would have the same results. Those expectations were quite large, and potentially even unrealistic at first. Now, however, as the year approaches its end, it doesn’t seem like anything will happen. The community started to wonder why that is, and what would it take for another bull run to emerge, which is what we will try to answer right now.

What does Bitcoin need in order to have another bull run?

1. Bringing regulation

The crypto space remains highly unregulated in most parts of the world, which is one of the largest reasons why BTC remains dormant. While there are attempts to regulate it, these attempts are made even more difficult due to the fact that the market is constantly changing and…
