The price of IOTA increased drastically by 39% in the last seven days after Fujitsu – a Japanese IT tech giant partnered with it. Before that happened, IOTA, TRON (TRX), and Monero had decreased in value following a big market dip that hit most cryptocurrencies in the crypto sphere.

IOTA fell out of its position – moving to the 11th spot, while TRON had moved down further to the 13th spot. But Ethereum Classic moved up to the 10th position immediately.

Following the recent growth on Monday, the price of IOTA got corrected and it moved to its no. 10th spot; Monero to 11th spot; Tron moved back to its normal position (12th spot) after getting a 6% increase on Monday.

MIOTA’s Current Price

MIOTA is the main token of IOTA blockchain; it surged on Monday, but in the last 24 hours, alongside almost of other cryptocurrencies, it has dropped to $0.69. The thing worth noting is, the token reached a peak of $0.7.234 on Monday – which the highest peak price it has attained in the month of August.

It is important to know that MIOTA was trading at $0.52862 on Sunday night, but on Monday morning (10:30 UTC), it peaked at 18%. MIOTA has been increasing by considerable percentages lately. As it seems, IOTA is trying to recover from its slip in the first week of August (of course, last 24 hours have changed the game again a bit).

At the time of writing, MIOTA has a market cap of $1,943,543,650, placing it at the number 10th position in the cryptocurrency market today. Additionally, MIOTA’s trading volume has reached $$77,403,494 so far (even after a 6% drop in the last 24 hours).

Nevertheless, even though MIOTA seems to have recovered, it dropped more than 30% this month (August), thus, making it one of the worst-performing cryptos in the cryptocurrency market. For a coin formally trading near $0.400 on August 11th and $0.468 on August 22nd, MIOTA has increased by a good value. Although, its low prices at those times were due to the overall market performance – and according to a news report, the price manipulation on Bitfnex may have caused it also.

Technology Giants, Fujitsu, decides to back IOTA

Fujitsu, a company based in Japan, has decided to make use of IOTA as its “new protocol standard” for its new services.

Leopold Sternberg, a program manager at Fujitsu, stated:

Fujitsu is well-equipped to help roll out IOTA as the new protocol standard as we are experts in both IT services and the manufacturing of IT products. Product quality is a critical success factor for the Manufacturing Industry. Assembled products can consist of hundreds of components and their production is based on complex processes. For audit trails in industrial production environments and supply chains, IOTA provides a single source of truth.”

IOTA has been dedicated to making sure its currency stays top. Even though IOTA has gotten lots of collaborations with top companies in the world today, it has also dealt with little controversies of its own.

IOTA aims to move higher than its current position and recently, it released the beta version of its Trinity Wallet. Consequently, IOTA’s Trinity Wallet enables users to have more than one account and it is compatible with PC’s and mobile devices.

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of…

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,…
