Moeda Loyalty Points (MDA) Up Over 300% This Week – But Why?

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…

HODLing, or holding on to a certain asset or assets has always been an extremely useful investment strategy, even before cryptocurrencies were even imagined. Now, with the market being more uncertain than ever, many are wondering what is the right thing to do with the coins in their possession.

Of course, things change depending on the coin in question, but today, we are going to talk about why it is a good idea to hold on to your Stellar (XLM) in 2019.

Why You Should Hodl Stellar (XLM)

The crypto market is rich with hundreds, and even thousands of different projects at this point, and separating valuable ones from those that are destined to slowly fade away can be tricky. However, even the biggest skeptics believe that Stellar is a coin that is here to stay.

XLM was first launched in 2014, and for a long time now, it has been among the top 10 cryptos by market cap. It is an open-source, decentralized protocol that allows users to send fiat currencies by using cryptocurrency as a method of transport. In a lot of ways, it is very similar to XRP. However, the biggest difference is that Stellar aims to offer its services to regular people, while XRP is more interested in working with banks and financial institutions.

Nevertheless, sending money, especially when it comes to cross-border…

2018 has been quite a rollercoaster for the crypto space. Coins went up and down more times than anyone could have guessed, not to mention two massive market crashes. However, in a few short weeks, the year will be over, and a new, positive period for the crypto world is expected to arrive.

While there are many predictions for 2019, today we are only interested in one thing — Electroneum (ETN). A lot of people quickly took notice of this coin, and many believe that it is among the coins of the future. Indeed, it has received a lot of attention, and many are interested in why that is, and why investing in it is a good idea. So, let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should invest in ETN in 2019.

1) It is fast

Speed and precision of any service have always been very important to people. This importance is even greater when making a profit depends on it. Electroneum developers were aware of this when they created it, and the coin is up to 5 times faster than Bitcoin. This means that ETN transactions can be confirmed much faster, which in turn reduces fees and waiting time.

Furthermore, there are also plans to create Electroneum Virtual Currency Exchange, which will allow the project to act as an exchange. However, the even…

STEEMIT Running Out Of STEAM?

Has Steemit seen its glory days run dry? There have been many rumors that the CEO Ned Scott has pushed the company to the blockchain focus that he forgot about Steem being a social media platform. Now, these are just things some of the former employees have been heard saying, but it is a rather interesting take as to what is going on. Give the following video a watch where I break down what is happening with Steem. I also give my thoughts on what may happen to other large ICOs and how we may see this trend continue as we have seen with ConsenSys laying off 10% of their workforce.

If the big name projects are starting to do this will it also have a trickle-down effect on other ICO’s which have no products and are running out of cash? I definitely think so, and I also see this negatively affecting Ethereum for the mid-term. The question many have been asking is just how long can the bottom 1800 projects last with the current market conditions? How many ICOs did not liquidate their Ethereum and now are stuck with 1/10th the cash flow or more in some cases, how will they pay to continue operations? What about the growing number of projects laying off employees…
