The world of cryptocurrencies is envisioned to be led by the only giant crypto, Bitcoin but smart traders and investors support altcoins because they know its untapped potential. Bitcoin was introduced as ‘The digital asset’ which is decentralized with a purpose to replace the traditional currency and revolutionize centralized banking & financial sectors. But bitcoin’s platform still hasn’t achieved its goal. Its fees are still very high, and it can handle merely 7 transactions per second. It’s exciting to observe the success of other blockchain projects which are based on a nearly-perfected Bitcoin technology such as VeChain. Its one of the best performing crypto of 2018 till now and offers some serious improvements on Bitcoin tech.

What Makes VeChain Better?

Unlike bitcoin and other blockchain based projects, VeChain has positioned itself neatly in the market doing what it does best and perfecting itself with time. It can handle supply chain management process and ensure that every customer is fully aware of the product’s background history, quality, and credibility. The VeChain platform was recently all over the news due to their rebranding to VeChain Thor. As VeChain Thor, it’ll function as a blockchain-as-a-service and employ blockchain to keep a track of product data in order to provide users with completely scalable and credible experience. VeChain thor will continue to function as an Ethereum-like decentralized App as well as an ICO network. It has already begun hosting various platforms from various commercial sectors such as retail, agriculture, food and luxury items.

Recent Achievements

Recently VeChain announced forming an alliance called ‘Shanghai Wine and Liquor Blockchain Alliance’ along with several other government bureaus and enterprises under the guidance of Municipal commission of commerce and Shanghai liquor monopoly administration. The purpose of this alliance is to improve Shanghai’s liquor industry with enhanced logistics, management, quality, and safety systemization and create a distinguished and flawless wine industry in 2020. This alliance aims to present Shanghai as the leading innovator and the center of blockchain tech and liquor traceability in all of China. Including blockchain technology in such a high-level government-based alliance gives a positive indication and leaves an even positive effect on VEN markets.

3rd Quarterly VeChain Foundation Financial Executive Report

Before entering the VeChain Thor mainnet, the VeChain foundation released their 3rd quarterly financial executive report which extends from February to April. The report made did not consider the coin split as it was finished before releasing Thor mainnet and declared that as of now the VeChain foundation is holding 39% of the total supply while the remaining 61% is currently in circulation. VeChain’s financial executive report indicates their commitment to transparency between the foundation and its dedicated community. The report included detailed information regarding enterprise investors who have invested while indicating the fact that VeChain is slowly becoming influential in the public industry. The report states that around 2.3 million VeChain tokens have been acquired by their strategic partners and an approximate of 9.5 million tokens were paid out as rewards to the VeChain team, all of which their team has locked for 2 years. The entire report is actually a record of recent VeChain achievements and events where the foundation has spent VET. In the said report, the team has mentioned their expansion of markets to South Korea as well as Japan.

Current Market Position

The present devastating situation of bitcoin has shaken each and every cryptocurrency. With BTC trading below $6800, traders and crypto enthusiasts are suffering throughout the markets. VeChain like all other top blockchain projects is presently facing a downward trend which has brought it down to $3.36 per VEN. The price seems to dip more at the rate of 10.51%. It is currently ranked as the 16th largest crypto which has a total market capitalization of $1.84 billion according to the data on CoinMarketCap at the time of writing. Almost $112 million worth of VEN has exchanged hands within the past 24 hours even at a hard time like this.

Conclusion

VeChain’s growth potential cannot be ignored because of the real-world use-case that makes it a solid and smart investment. It’s on the brink of major adoption because it offers smart contracts, ICOs, dApps, data transfer, IoT, logistics, and supply chain. VeChain has already begun providing services with the help of its recent partnerships whereas Bitcoin hasn’t given even the market even the faintest clue regarding its improvement or major adoption. Even though lightning network will soon appear on bitcoin, it’s hard to tell whether it would improve BTC’s commercial throughput and transaction speed. There’s no denying that Bitcoin is still the reigning king of all crypto but VeChain has proved its worth in the past few days. It’s definitely one of the coins which you might want to keep under your radar.

In the hyper-competitive world of online casinos, operators are always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. The most usual methods include using distinctive branding, offering generous bonuses and making sure that they are on all of the major so-called affiliate sites where players can compare and contrast casinos’ different offerings.

But now a whole new generation of casinos are starting to emerge – ones whose key difference isn’t what and how you play, but more in how you pay.

The rise and rise of the cryptocurrency casino is seen by many as the next logical step in a world that is slowly but surely starting to accept that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, et al. are certainly here to stay.

Of course, it’s the first of these cryptocurrencies that has really grabbed the headlines and led the way with its meteoric performance in 2017 when it seemed like its $20,000 value was just the start of the story. Admittedly, this was short-lived and the value quickly fell back to a more sustainable level but, if it achieved one thing, it was to cement this exciting new kind of currency in the consciousness of the general public.

Why Bitcoin and online casinos are the perfect partners

In many ways, it’s the perfect partnership between Bitcoin and online casinos with multiple benefits for both.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

This significant jump comes just six months after the Bitcoin price plummeted to a low of $3150 in December 2018. Since then, Bitcoin has experienced steady growth and gain in the market. However, in the last 30 days, the Bitcoin price peaked to $8,320.82, its highest price ever. This phenomenal jump occurred in a span of only 10 days breaking the Bitcoin record so far of significant gains made in short time frames. This positive growth has led to experts forecasting the Bitcoin price to hit the $20,000 mark by the end of this year.

Since entering the market almost 11 years ago, Bitcoin is still at the top of the global cryptocurrencies list. The current circulating supply of Bitcoin is at unbelievable 17,708,875 BTC. The market trend of the Bitcoin price has remained positive even when the currency did not maintain an uptrend. Cryptocurrency researchers believe that Bitcoin has the potential to grow up to a high of USD 50,000 within the next two years.
