IOTA is among the top 10 coins, currently holding the rank as the ninth-best crypto on the global coin ranking list. What drives IOTA to stay on top is a strong capacity of its “blockless” technology called Tangle, alongside with the involvement of IOTA in the Internet of Things. Moreover, IOTA is one of the rare coins to have found its way towards a real-life purpose as well as the mass adoption of IOTA technology and MIOTA units. So, after the first charging crypto station for electric vehicles, IOTA is now taking everything to the next level by partnering up with Norway’s biggest bank.
IOTA signs an Agreement with Norway’s Bank DNB ASA
At the beginning of June, it was evident that IOTA won’t stop with having MIOTA charged electric charging station when it comes to developing the Internet of Things.
Besides from exploring the boundaries, or better aid possibilities in a borderless ecosystem of IoT, IOTA seems to be working on mass adoption as well, which has been going in its favor with the latest proof that the MIOTA charging station for electric vehicles stationed in the Netherlands is indeed functional and fast.
However, in the terms of developing and exploring the Internet of Things, IOTA has recently partnered up with Norway’s biggest bank.
The mentioned bank is called DNB ASA and it represents the largest banking service in Norway while it also represents one of the largest banks in the mentioned area.
Since DNB ASA banking service and IOTA share the same objective when it comes to the Internet of Things and machine-to-machine communication, the two parties have signed an agreement where both IOTA and DNB promised to work together on “innovation and co-creation in the space of citizen-centric innovation, machine economy and decentralized data marketplaces” as stated in the Medium post published on May 31st by the head of Biz Dev of IOTA.
IOTA’s Tangle to be Used for Research and Development of IoT
The two parties, DNB ASA, the largest Norway’s banking service and IOTA, have agreed to bring their forces together in order to explore and develop a new digital innovation landscape in which Tangle will be the main spinning wheel.
Norway’s largest banking service already has a history of working with decentralized blockchain-based technology, and will as of the most recent turn of events collaborate with IOTA in order to use Tangle for creating an innovation ecosystem for the Internet of Things, while developing machine economy and decentralized marketplaces.
IOTA makes up for the first and by far the only ecosystem that runs on a blockchain-based blockless system called Tangle, while being designed and launched specifically for the purpose of building the future of the Internet of Things. That is how IOTA becomes one of the first cryptos ever to get a chance to be used in real life machine-to-machine communication, powered by Tangle of course, which made the MIOTA charging station for electric vehicles as a true success as it was later demonstrated in front of a live audience.
That is how it is expected to see IOTA thriving towards mass adoption and radical development of the IoT-related ecosystems, economy, marketplaces and different projects that fit the requirements of machine-to-machine communication and IoT related systems, protocols and products.
IOTA has held a live demonstration of the crypto charging station for electric vehicles a couple of days ago, showing that charging your Tesla with MIOTA charged station that is driven by Tangle, is simple, easy and fast, while the payment is processed in a matter of seconds.
IOTA and the Market Performance
The market seems a bit shaky, once again showing signs of a sluggish return; however, some of the currencies seem to be rising up against the dollar although with minor gains.
That is how MIOTA is trading up in the green while climbing up against the dollar by a minor rise of 0.89%.
Ranked as the ninth-best crypto on the global coin ranking list, this asset can be traded at the price of 1.73$ per one unit with great odds of getting near the price of 2$ per one MIOTA.
Earlier in January, IOTA has set a record value of over 5$ per one unit, but due to its stability in the market, we didn’t see it go far off from its all-time high.

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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
