Published

cardano ada news

The Cardano ADA project has been making major strides amidst the crypto market turmoil that we have been experienced in the last few weeks. Many of the updates have been made public via Twitter, medium, and Reddit, but it is worth reminding ourselves why we love the project. Therefore, let us look into the recent Cardano ADA news.

Numerous Meetups Around the Globe

The Cardano Global community is constantly growing with a lot of meetups being organized across the world. Below is a list of future meetups. Local Cardano community members are encouraged to attend.

    • Meetup in Mongolia with Charles Hoskinson – 15th September 2018
    • Meetup in Colombia – 26th September 2018
    • Meetup in Palo Alto – 26th September 2018

Cardano ADA news featured on Forbes

The Cardano project was featured on Forbes in a post that was published on the 7th of September. In the article by Yoav Vilner, he described Cardano as one of the best-known blockchain projects due to its research-based approach. He also added that the IOHK team differentiates itself by employing a first principles approach that is driven by peer-reviewed academic research to build the platform from the ground up.

September Technical Updates

The Cardano team released the latest version of the Daedalus Wallet that is now available on the Cardano website. The new wallet fixed a lot of networking issues as well as making the loading of the blockchain much faster and from scratch. Daedalus is currently the only wallet that supports ADA.

The project is currently in the Byron phase and the team is making back-end improvements to the code as well as improving the Daedalus wallet. After the Byron phase is complete, the much awaited Shelley phase will commence which is the decentralization of the network.

Existing smart contract models on the Cardano network are still being worked on by IOHK. The team has increased the allocation of resources to enable its team to embark on parallel tracks of research on the smart contracts in terms of fixing the issues seen in Ethereum smart contracts, as well as improving the general foundational design of the contracts.

A voting system is going to be implemented where the community decides on Cardano Improvement Proposals (CIPs). Details of the voting system will be released soon. The prospects of the community voting on project improvements is a sign that the platform is going to be purely decentralized.

Brief Market Analysis

The crypto markets have once again shown us that they are capable of bouncing back after a massive decline that left many of our cryptocurrency portfolios declining by at least 20%. Checking the charts, the King of Crypto, also known as Bitcoin (BTC) has once again risen to levels above $6,500 and at the moment of writing this. Further looking at Ethereum (ETH), the digital asset had scared many of us when it looked like it was losing its mojo when it had depreciated to new lows of $171. ETH is now valued at $207 and up 20.40% in the last 24 hours.

Further going down the list of the top 20 digital assets, we find Cardano (ADA) ranked 10th according to market capitalization. The digital asset is currently up 10.67% in the last 24 hours and is currently trading at $0.070. One can attribute the massive bounce of ADA in the markets as being due to the recent listing on Bittrex.

With the Cardano roadmap constantly evolving and with the prospects of the community voting system, the Cardano project is setting itself up for a bright future in terms of technical advancements and complete decentralization. These two factors will be crucial in propping the price of the digital asset of ADA to new heights.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
