There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000. Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally. A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind. In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive. That prediction appears to be playing out as expected. Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive. Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets. One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
Karatbars International and GSB Gold Standard Banking Corporation AG are now looking to prove the seriousness and honesty of their business model. The executives of both enterprises provided us with authentic documents, which confirm that the estimated resource deposits of the KaratGold held gold mine “Fort Dauphin” include several tons of precious metals and minerals, such as gold, silver and uranium.
According to received documents, Fort Dauphin is located in the South East city of Madagascar Tolagnaro, while the documents confirm that TSARAVITANA mining co., which is the current holder of the required operation licences for the area, grants the German company GSB Gold Standard Banking Corporation AG, and the Singapore-based KARAT GOLD corporation PTE. LTD full access to the mine and its surrounding area. This process was achieved in collaboration with Madagascar-based company TSARAVITANA mining co., which acts as a government-approved licensee for the area of the mine.
The document linked above further proofs that the area of Fort Dauphin holds even more precious resources than originally assumed during the ICO phase.
Aside from that, both companies are further securing their market leading position by launching several other projects in the blockchain space. For instance, KaratGold introduced the world’s first voice-over-blockchain smartphone IMpulse K1, the blockchain-powered payment solution K-Merchant, the hybrid cryptocurrency and exchange platform KaratBit, as well as several other blockchain solutions linked to gold.
Moreover, the plagiarism allegations against KaratCoin Bank Coin (KCB) and KaratGold Coin (KBC) continue to dissolve. Further documents provided by the management include a signed letter of the district attorney’s office of Stuttgart, which states that the investigations against a former collaborator are ongoing.
Karatbars Chairman of the Board Josip Heit and CEO Harald Seiz validated that the company stays on track with its upcoming plans for the company’s ecosystem. A quick look into reputable media outlets shows that this is not an individual opinion, since blockchain specialists from the prominent business magazine Forbes recently mentioned KaratGold Coin to be among the most interesting blockchain companies to watch in 2019.
It’s really a shame when promising projects get dragged down by unnecessary FUD. Unfortunately, this happens a lot in cryptocurrency through various publishing and social media platforms. This only further scores the importance of doing one’s own due diligence before making any trading decisions. Fortunately, KaratGold continues to prove its business by meeting all its goals and providing the necessary information when questioned. With blockchain and distributed ledger technology reaching mainstream interest, I am keeping a close eye on KaratGold’s next moves.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
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…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018. It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants. Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse. The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.
As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha. In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets. I can remember trading during my high school days. It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom. Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard. Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.
Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques. The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft. That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges
Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.
A Change is Needed
When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:
- Constant fear of hackers
- Exchange manipulation
- Fragmented liquidity
- Risk of identity theft
One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.
Another huge risk is having to deal with…
