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.

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.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
