The cryptocurrency market is drastically changing around these days; thus, the market is being affected by an unstable pricing that goes up and down while some of the crypto investors look for strategies to face the situation.
Each and every one of the digital currencies, no matter if old or new, are being affected by this global changing market; even the most consolidated ones like Bitcoin, which has had the struggle of passing from a price around $330 billion to now $140 billion.
If that’s the case of the cryptocurrency leader, we can imagine how it goes for the rest of the field. Nonetheless, some brand-new strategies are emerging to become a solution.
Like so is the case of Litecoin (LTC), which seems to have an ace under the sleeve in order to make things work. Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin, recently shared a message on his Twitter announcing that: “we have just tagged Litecoin Core 0.16rc1. Once we have tested it enough, it will be released.”
This way, Litecoin Core would represent a solving fact for some of the recent problems the encrypted currency have been facing. For instance, the price of the digital coin was traded double bottoms as the week was coming to an end.
Regarding this, the main LTC struggle has been maintaining the coin on a float while the whole cryptocurrency market seems to be sinking. Since huge price slump happened last Wednesday, Litecoin has had a hard time making their gains acceptable enough, thus, some higher corrections were made as the price is nearly close to the support level at $168.
Nonetheless, all these problems appear now so distant with the launch of Litecoin Core; an open source software that enables LTC usage freely. The software is operated within the terms of the MIT license but deployed by an LTC developers group.
Even though the software was recently updated, the launching date is still uncertain, as Charlie Lee himself declared, it needs to be tested properly before its release to the public market.
The technical landscape
The price of Litecoin has gained a significant value compared to the current cryptocurrency scenario; its USD has gone up in a 2.9 percent in the last 24 hours, which of course is a very satisfying fact considering the numbers were negative during the whole week.
In a satisfactory turn of events, the price of the LTC reached the ground and went right back up again; not only was able to make a strong upside correction but also did it in the record time of 30 minutes, passing from $160 to $167 at 13:00 GMT.
In consequence, the scenario now is very positive; even the moving averages are starting now to correct the upside. As we can appreciate in this chart, a sustainable behavior it’s starting to show up; and all seem to conclude that price control is taken back, meaning in a short term we could be seeing a correction to the upside where Litecoin trade would be priced above $170.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
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?
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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
