I was blown away this morning when after opening my Binance account to check the ‘Market Gainers’ section of my favorite altcoin exchange I found Moeda Loyalty Points (MDA) had jumped 50% overnight. I’ve noticed the price of this little-known cryptocurrency climbing all week and I have been expecting a natural pull back from the huge gains it has had recently. To my surprise, this coin has again skyrocketed, now perched more than 300% above its price point from just a few days ago.
On October 7th, Moeda (MDA) sat at US $.43, in a relatively stable (if not outright boring) pattern of sideways trading. Slightly down from the month before, slightly up on the day, watching Moeda (MDA) lately was a bit like watching paint dry. Now it’s the most exciting coin on the market as its value races up the crypto-charts, achieving a price of US $1.42 (and climbing) while writing this article.
What is Moeda (MDA)?
Basically, Moeda is a seed funding platform for local businesses. With Moeda (MDA), investments are made into projects enhancing sustainable practices and local growth. Entrepreneurs submit proposals to the program, and when selected, receive funding and mentoring to help them succeed. Seed projects must meet UN Sustainable Development Goals and are selected by the Moeda (MDA) team based on their overall impact on their community.
Investors seeking to make a social impact with their capital can use blockchain to invest and track the progress of their investment with transparency and accountability. From eco-social products to craft beer, Moeda has developed strategic partnerships to facilitate a more sustainable world.
Ok… But what caused the sudden rise in price?
A number of factors may be contributing to the gains experienced by Moeda (MDA) this week. Recent progress has led to a number of developments including the release of the team’s first seed project in August and a fiat pegged token deployed on the Moeda (MDA) ecosystem in September. Further, a digital account and wallet are anticipated this month as developers continue to meet their production goals.
Whether these developments can really justify the recent jump in price is unclear. Honestly, there is very little news out there hyping this project, and while I may be missing something entirely relevant (please comment below to fill me in), I think Moeda (MDA) (and a handful of other lesser-known altcoins) are benefiting from an overall excitement in blockchain projects that may soon translate into gains throughout the broader market.
What can we expect from Moeda’s (MDA) market performance going forward?
Moeda (MDA) has had its share of pumps and dumps (along with the rest of the market) throughout 2018. In early September, this coin shot up over US $.90, only to quickly fall back to earth, stabilizing once again just above US $.40. Longer-term investors will remember the glory days of early 2018 when Moeda (MDA) reached its ultimate peak of US $4.35. Of course, the entire coin market was worth near US $800 Billion at that time.
Whether Moeda can ever reach the heights it achieved in January will largely depend on a new influx of fiat injected once again into the broader altcoin market. While signs do point to another bull run boosting the price of our favorite investments in the near future, the fact that Moeda (MDA) can show gains of this size in an otherwise stable market must be seen as a testament to the power of this altcoin’s base, and the prowess of the Moeda (MDA) platform.
For those of us who are just finding out about this amazing altcoin, it may feel a bit late to buy in. From a technical perspective, a pullback should be expected in the near term before another jump forward brings new investors to the table. On the other hand, that’s what I thought yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that…

A matter of time before TRON (TRX) achieves mass adoption
Tron (TRX) has all its eyes on decentralizing the internet, or rather content-sharing to ensure that creatives, artists, musicians, and authors can all release their content without the need of middle companies. As it seems, Tron’s founder hopes that the coin will challenge the globe’s major content providers like Facebook and YouTube.
The coin has undoubtedly made progress since its launch from a coin offering on the Ethereum ledger platform to now a native coin present on the official Tron Mainnet. If you think launching the independent MainNet is all Tron wanted to achieve, you are mistaken.
The aim is towards mass adoption as well as creating a decentralized web. Yeah, it is a fact that in the past weeks TRX has experienced price declines, but currently, the cryptocurrency is riding 5.37% hike against the USD in the last 24 hours (remember most of the other top coins including Bitcoin are in red).
It’s also continued succeeding in attaining quality listings such as the Bittrex (to name one of the most recent ones). Therefore, it seems as every step TRON makes is a sign of progress to make the decentralized web a reality.
How TRON (TRX) is Making Mass Adoption a Reality
The primary objective for TRON (TRX) is to create a decentralized web which will be a representation of the internet’s next generation. Therefore, in making that a reality, the largest file-sharing platform, BitTorrent that has over 100M global…

Hyperion-Stellar Partnership Finalized — Support For Stellar’s Crypto Assets Trade About To Arrive
Hyperion and Stellar: A new partnership
According to a recent announcement by Global Blockchain Technologies Corp., it would seem that the known crypto exchange Hyperion has finally made an agreement with Stellar (XLM). The new partnership is to allow Stellar’s own crypto assets to be traded on Hyperion’s platform. This move is expected to significantly impact Stellar’s price and spread awareness of the coin and its goal even further.
Hyperion uses an alternative trading system (ATS), which was licensed by the SEC. As a part of this arrangement, previously attained via investment in DBOT (Delaware Board of Trade), Hyperion has permission to also operate as a broker-dealer. It is also expected to become North America’s first advanced security token exchange.
As many are already aware of, Stellar is a trading protocol that is used for issuing, exchanging, and transferring digital assets. It works with several other cryptocurrencies, but also with fiat currencies like the USD. Additionally, Stellar also works even with some commodity assets, like gold.
Stellar’s goal is similar to that of Ripple, at least when it comes to enabling faster and better cross-border transactions. While Ripple focuses on providing its services to banks and financial institutions, Stellar aims to provide these services to individual investors. Thanks to this, Stellar has received a lot of attention and praise from individual investors, as the general interest in cryptocurrencies grew.
Why is this partnership important?
