The crypto markets have once again given us hope and reminded us why we love and believe in this industry. Looking at the charts, we find that most of our favorite digital assets are in the green and led by Bitcoin (BTC). The King of Crypto has regained some value and is currently trading at $6,373 at the moment of writing this. XRP has exploded due to the xRapid hype and NANO price has also rallied by 5.2% in the last 24 hours. The latter digital asset is currently valued at $2.37 but Nano price will not be this low for too long as shall be explained below.
Unbeknownst to many, the NANO cryptocurrency is a fee-less and fast digital asset that has wallets in the multiple platforms of Android, iOS, Windows, Linux and on nanowallet.io. This type of wallet support is unprecedented in the crypto-verse for any one project. Add the fact that transactions are free, we sort of forget about XRP for a minute with its $0.0004 transaction costs. Free is good! Free is better!
NANO is ideal for micropayments such as tipping on Twitter and Reddit. There is also the possibility of NANO making an excellent base currency for crypto exchanges due to its zero fees. As a matter of fact, KuCoin has updated NANO to KuCoin Plus Trading Area. The announcement was made by the exchange on the 17th of September and it stated the following:
“KuCoin is dedicated to creating a healthy exchange ecosystem, investigating high-quality projects and utilizing resources to better serve our users. We have been closely monitoring and analyzing all the projects in the KuCoin Plus Trading Area. Based on our comprehensive assessments, we have made the following adjustments:
DCC, AOA, ITC, LYM, OLT, TRX, ONT, DCR, NANO and ZRX have been promoted to the KuCoin Plus Trading Area.“
Such an announcement should boost Nano’s price.
The NANO community is one of the most enthusiastic communities in the crypto verse. They have even led the adoption of the cryptocurrency by creating a localNANOs.com platform that borrows its idea from the famous localBitcoins.com. The platform is in its testing phase and will eventually become a portal where you can exchange NANO on a peer-to-peer level.
There is also localNano.com (without an ‘s’ at the end) that promises to allow you to buy NANO with cash, bank transfers, SWIFT, e-money, Visa, Mastercard, gift cards and even set your own escrow service.
Checking the one year chart of Nano (NANO) we find that the digital asset peaked to $36 in early January indicating that it has potential once the crypto markets are stable and with a strong Bitcoin to lead the pack. But the way things are going with NANO – as can be seen with the technical developments – its price action might be less tied to that of BTC in the future.
We might find a situation where NANO is less affected by the volatility of Bitcoin (BTC) in a manner similar or greater to how XRP has wowed us with 18% gains in the last 24 hours and due to xRapid.
In conclusion, NANO is a gem that is hiding in the number 27 spot on coinmarketcap.com. For the few who are HODLing, they have seen the future in terms of a fee-less cryptocurrency and the flexibility available with the NANO ledger. If you have not researched on NANO, now is the time to start doing so. It might be a safer bet than Litecoin (LTC).

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
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.
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,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association.

The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
