If we go through the cryptocurrency market en masse, it might seem that the current market status is still a little on the bearish side with the most influential cryptocurrencies still under recovery from the plummeting downfall in January 2018. However, if we consider various cryptocurrencies individually, the scenario wouldn’t seem so bleak because the downfall in Bitcoin’s price has presented with golden opportunities for several relatively lesser known coins. Nano coin certainly belongs to the group of currencies that were adumbrated by Bitcoin’s influence until the beginning of this year.

Nano initially began its journey with a different name, RaiBlocks (XRB) in March 2017. Despite offering some unique features to the group of traders, this currency initially struggled to make a mark on the cryptocurrency market. But when RaiBlocks was rebranded as Nano on the 31st of January, 2018, things start to take a dramatic turnaround. Right after this rebranding, the price of Nano exhibited a significant upsurge (41% approximately) which clearly accentuates the fact that the previous name was the only reason behind its initial struggle. The sole purpose of the introduction of this currency was to offer a feasible solution to Bitcoin’s scalability issue by providing instantaneous transaction.

Here, a few things concerning Nano’s technology and features would be discussed along with its recent developments.

The Technology behind Nano:

Nano coin is an ERC-20 token which is based on the DAG algorithm along with a private code known as Block Lattice. In lieu of Bitcoin’s proof of work protocol, Nano uses a DPoS (Delegated proof of Stake) protocol that not only increases its transaction speed but also the security of its ecosystem. The main reason behind this currency’s popularity so far has been its instantaneous transaction system and high scalability. Both DPoS protocol and the Block Lattice code are responsible for maintaining this feature. The Block Lattice code enables the fast transaction system by operating transactions on a separate network away from the main chain. As each transaction is conducted on separate blocks, the block size issue gets resolved right away.

Salient Features of Nano Coin:

This cryptocurrency comes with a significant number of very unique features that cannot be found in other digital currencies. Nano possesses an adroit development team that is constantly working on making these features even better for the Nano holders. Some of these features include:

  • Resolving Block Size Issue: Nano’s ingenious block lattice code has managed to nullify the block size issue completely. This issue is one of the principal reasons behind the sluggishness of Bitcoin’s transaction and its efficiency. With the block size problem eliminated, Nano’s blockchain ecosystem can offer tremendous scalability to its users.
  • Universal Blocks: In a blockchain system, blocks can be classified into four different categories namely receive blocks, send blocks, change blocks, and open blocks. In Nano’s platform, all these four blocks are combined into one single block with all the features remaining intact. These blocks are known as Universal Blocks. With the help of these blocks, Nano users can take advantage of a much efficient, convenient, and secure blockchain network. These Universal Blocks also provide all important data to the token holders as per requirement. Nano holders can know their individual balances without any hassle because of these highly efficient blocks.
  • Free Instantaneous Transaction: Nano coin was introduced to resolve Bitcoin’s scalability issue. Hence, it is of no surprise that Nano provides an instantaneous transaction facility to the traders across the globe. However, such a high-quality service comes completely free of cost. Also, the latency of Nano’s transaction system has also improved significantly over the past few mo0nths which allow the users to upload account chains anytime they want.

Recent Nano Coin Developments:

This currency has recently published an updated roadmap consisting of various goals and targets likely to be reached by the end of this year. The most significant Nano coin developments in progress include:

  • Nano Wallet: Nano’s development team has been working on releasing this wallet for a long time. The wallet is supposed to augment Nano coin’s efficiency and acceptability. Once the Nano wallet is launched, it would be compatible with iOS, Android, and Desktops.
  • New Block Explorer: A new block explorer of this coin is around the corner which would shift its base from nano.org to nanocode.co. This new explorer would enable users to monitor the live coin performance on a more user-friendly interface.
  • Nano Wat.ch Application: Once this application is launched, the holders of this digital currency would be able to see up to 50 recent Nano transactions to keep track of their payments.

Current Condition of Nano Coin:

As of 31st May 2018, Nano Coin holds the 34th position on Coinmarketcap with a market capitalization of 565 million USD and coin price of $4 approximately. In the past few days, Nano has managed a conspicuous upsurge in its price with a percentage of circa 3.5.

Final Thoughts:

RaiBlocks was rebranded to Nano in almost the same time of Bitcoin’s downfall and one simple change has transmogrified its position in the market. Nowadays, security and scalability are major issues that most cryptocurrencies are working on perfecting. As Nano has incorporated this feature from the very beginning, it serves as an extra advantage. With the new developments around the corner, Nano’s blockchain system is likely to become even more impregnable and efficient. Although it is nearly impossible to foresee any coin’s future, it is safe to say that Nano holders can expect a prosperous 2018 if the current trend continues.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
