A new move by Bitpanda will now allow users to make IOTA withdrawals and deposits.

IOTA withdrawals and deposits are now possible on Bitpanda

Bitpanda’s new decision to add IOTA (MIOTA) now allows full withdrawal and deposit functionality. The platform’s decision to include IOTA in its portfolio dates back to June of this year.

However, back then, IOTA was only available within the exchange service’s inner wallet. Now, IOTA news claims that users will be allowed to move their tokens, or withdraw them entirely.

Bitpanda’s recent blog post states that the company is pleased with making this move. Additionally, they used the same blog post to announce their support for IOTA Hub — the project’s latest tech.

IOTA Hub is an exceptional new environment that allows developers to communicate with IOTA protocol in a more efficient way. Bitpanda managed to set it up with the help of IOTA’s own engineering team.

IOTA Foundation’s head engineer, Edward Greve, commented on the partnership by praising the Bitpanda team. He stated that the team is quick and professional and that very little support was needed actually to set up the IOTA Hub. This also means that the Hub itself is easy to understand and use.

While this IOTA news represents a big move for the project, Bitpanda is still only the second exchange to start using IOTA Hub. The first one to integrate it was Upbit, which is already running it.

The part of IOTA community on Reddit was more than curious regarding the implications of the integration. Especially since Bitpanda is still a relatively small exchange, especially when compared to others that are supporting IOTA.

IOTA Hub will make MIOTA easier to use

IOTA is known for being more difficult to use than most other digital assets. It especially poses an issue when it comes to new investors. While some believed that Trinity wallet’s launch might make things easier, this doesn’t seem to be the case. Still, the network’s main goal is to serve the IoT, which is one of the areas where IOTA has had a significant amount of success.

As for Bitpanda, this move seems to be only a beginning for IOTA Hub integration. IOTA expects that many other exchanges will be drawn to their new technology as well, in due time.

If this happens, it will likely drive IOTA volumes up by a significant amount. Using the Hub will likely make dealing with IOTA significantly easier than it was so far, which will also attract additional investors to the coin.

IOTA already has a massive use case, which has helped it grow already. Its growth has also given other exchanges a real incentive for listing the coin on their platforms. Apart from making partnerships with some of the largest carmakers, IOTA also seems to be ready to enter the insurance industry. With each new step, IOTA demands will increase, and some exchanges have already recognized its potential.

Additionally, with each IOTA news that features a new exchange listing, IOTA is getting closer to being considered, and maybe even actually added on the largest exchanges. Coinbase, for example, is the dream for every cryptocurrency out there, and if IOTA gets listed on it, its value would likely go up by several hundred percents.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

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…
