The global crypto market is slowly making its way towards recovery and during such times, investors and traders look for new investments in better performing altcoins. Among the handful of profitable altcoins which gained entry in June with a considerable rise in their respective market is Zilliqa. Zilliqa is a rather a young cryptocurrency that finished its crowdsale at the end of previous year. Zilliqa’s markets have successfully gone through May and entered June with a green indication. Zilliqa has been gaining an increasing number of followers since Q1 and thus making constant progress. In this article, we shall discuss how profitable Zilliqa trading can be and whether it’s a risk-free investment or not.

A Little about Zilliqa Project

Zilliqa was created as an open source blockchain whose aim is to achieve high scalability levels and remain decentralized. The project challenges Ethereum and Bitcoin in terms of speed of transactions and fee. Its cutting-edge technology makes it better than some altcoins out there in the crypto space. Each and every aspect of Zilliqa was carefully made to work better than the crypto giants. Many crypto traders have joined Zilliqa in its journey of becoming the Gem of the market by holding onto it since the time it was created. Zilliqa is best known for introducing mining through sharding and also for its currently under development new programming language named Scilla. Sharding means dividing a particular mining network into smaller shards.

Reasons for Investing in Zilliqa

Zilliqa is set to revolutionize the smart contract aspect of blockchain technology through its sharding technology and its upcoming releases. Its platform is designed in such a way to scale in transaction rates as the number of shards rises. Smaller mining units which are created through sharding can process the transaction by themselves and hence solve the problem of network congestion which is frequently experienced by developers in case of Ethereum platform. The upcoming Scilla, the programming language has created much hype within the community because it’s said to be extremely developer friendly and allows the testing of smart contracts before its launch. All of this gives Zilliqa markets the traction it needs making it a profitable investment.

Risks Associated with Zilliqa

Everyone expects to make a profit while enjoying the benefits of a certain blockchain project but it’s more than just necessary to keep a watchful eye on the risks associated with each investment. Zilliqa also has its own risks such as foreshadowing regulations which threats Zilliqa’s growth or even make it inexistent. Also, being a young project, there is always a chance of some other improved platform to be better than it and coming up with a newer, better technology all because the competition between cryptocurrencies is fiercer than what it looks like. Zilliqa’s sharding technology also gives rise to some shortcomings, for example, it requires a lot of disk space. Although Zilliqa team has hinted a collaboration with bluezelle to address these problems in the future.

Zilliqa Trading and Recent Listings

Zilliqa has come a long way since it was launched on 12th January. Its now available for trading on a number of cryptocurrency exchanges and many more exchanges are now adding Zilliqa due to its hype and expanding community. As of now, Zilliqa is listed on some of the largest crypto exchanges like Binance, KuCoin, Bithumb, Upbit and Huobi etc. It’s also available for trading at EtherDelta, IDEX, Hotbit, OKEx, Bitbns, Gate.io, Kyber Network, Radar Relay, GOPAX, and Koinex etc. However, one cannot directly buy Zilliqa with dollars or any fiat currency. First, you need to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum with fiat currency from an exchange that supports dollars and then buy Zilliqa from any of the aforementioned exchanges.

Market Position

Currently, Zilliqa markets are signaling improvement and progress with its individual price close to $0.127 USD which is rising with a 7.03% indication. At the time of writing, Zilliqa holds the rank of 26th largest cryptocurrency of the world. It’s impressive to note that it has been merely six months since Zilliqa entered the global markets and in such a short span it has grown a lot. Its total market capitalization is close to $933 million USD as per the data on CoinMarketCap. It’s interesting to note that according to analysis Zilliqa market has improved more than 30% in terms of its value in less than a week. It’s presently, making its way to enter the 1 billion USD market and analysts speculate that it’s only a matter of time when Zilliqa crosses the threshold and enters into the 1 billion market capital mark.

Final Thoughts

After closely monitoring Zilliqa’s movements and doing an in-depth research on its features one question arises in the mind of every crypto enthusiast, ‘will Zilliqa maintain its current performance and for how long?’. The volatility of cryptocurrencies is evident, and nobody can guarantee whether Zilliqa will make a record-breaking profit or not. But rest assured, Zilliqa is going to be one of the best players of this game all through the Q2.

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

Ripple

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
