It is not a secret for anybody that cryptocurrencies are getting more traction among the industry as each day passes, a fact that without any doubt can potentially increase the scope of all of the virtual coins. Even when cryptocurrencies have given us enough reasons to want to keep them as assets, the industry still needs a spoon of validation to fulfill one of our greatest dreams as crypto users, a mass adoption.

In this specific case, a great milestone has just happened as one of the most influential companies in the financial sector has decided to place a bet on cryptocurrencies, and of course, it could not be other than the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation (NASDAQ), the second largest electronic and automated stock exchange in the United States.

NASDAQ has decided to support one of the most mentioned coins in the industry at the moment, the Stellar Lumens (XLM). We can be sure that great things are coming for both companies with such an incredible alliance, but one thing we may ask is, why NASDAQ has chosen Stellar? Well, let’s find out the main reasons why Stellar (XLM) represents a better option for the famous stock exchange than the other cryptos in the market.

The solidity of Stellar Lumens

NASDAQ is seeking to reconstruct itself and also hit into the digital boom of cryptocurrencies, and that’s of course, something that is more likely to happen if it decides to back a solid token of the industry, in this case, Stellar (XLM).

When it comes to performance in the market, Stellar (XLM) has proven to be stable and robust, although its growth has been slow the coin has been evolving with the time, a fact that’s even more remarkable in times where almost all of the cryptos are in red.

At the moment of writing, Stellar (XLM) is the number 8th in the listings of coinmarketcap, position in which it is traded at a value per coin of $0.29263 and has increased in value by 1.08% against the US dollar in last seven days and a 2.95% against the leader of the market, Bitcoin (BTC).

Stellar partnerships and scalability

If we talk about notable partnerships in the crypto sphere, Stellar (XLM) comes out as a great performer. Over the course of its existence, this coins has been working on building up powerful alliances among the financial industry. In this matter, we can count three of the most remarkable, the one with OKEx, the exchange from Hong Kong, the ones with the Deloitte and ICICI banks, and of course, the one with IBM.

Like this, Stellar is not only opening itself to markets such as the banking; it is also working on building up a large scalable platform, a feature that for sure is of interest for NASDAQ as it is looking to solve issues of scalability.

In addition, the Stellar platform provides incredible features when it comes to cross-border transactions, including the lowest fees in the market and a very remarkable speed of operation.

Conclusion

As with the whole market, Stellar (XLM) is currently suffering certain drops; however, the coin has managed to stay afloat in days where the tendency is entirely bearish. The potential support of NASDAQ may represent a huge benefit for the token, so for sure, Stellar Lumens should be watched in the days to come.

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.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
