IOTA surges 39% in a week, leaving Tron and Monero in a fierce competition

IOTA

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.

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?

Published

on

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…
