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.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
