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.
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.

What Changes May the Crypto Space Experience in 2019
After the crypto hype of 2017, a lot of newly-arrived crypto enthusiasts were caught off-guard by the price crash and bear market that took over in 2018. One month after another, investors were waiting for things to change, and for another bull run to take place. Unfortunately, this did not happen in 2018, and while the year’s final days were seemingly stable, the rally everyone wanted to see has failed to arrive.
However, crypto investors remain optimistic, with many of them hoping to see some changes arrive in 2019. There are rather great expectations of this year, especially since the last one failed to deliver. However, many are interested in what exactly is to be expected in this year, which is what we will talk about today.
Bitcoin ETF approval
The US SEC’s decision regarding Bitcoin ETFs was one of the most anticipated events throughout 2018. Sadly, the decision constantly got delayed, and the SEC never actually provided an answer. The last delay has pushed the decision into 2019, and it is now expected to arrive on February 27.
Historically, the SEC was never ready to approve Bitcoin ETF, and many believe that the delays came due to the fact that the market was not ready for then in 2018. This is backed by the fact that the SEC rejected multiple application throughout the year. VanEck and SolidX…
Reasons Why 2019 May Be A Great Year For Crypto
The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.
The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.
With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.
1) Bearish market to loosen its grip
The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…
3 Coins with the Largest Potential in 2019
2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.
Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.
Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.
One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…
