With the crypto market touching $400 billion this year, the market has experienced a boom in the third generation decentralized applications (Dapps). Blockchain technology, which has made remarkable advancements over the past few months, has moved beyond Bitcoin and Ethereum. As the rival currencies soar in numbers, altcoins like NEM are renewing investors’ interest in the blockchain.

Functional since March 2015, NEM has recorded a steady progress. When compared to its peers, NEM’s performance has been consistent for the most part of the year. While big names like Bitcoin and Ethereum are the most vied-after investment options, they are frequently criticised for their security breaches, price volatility, and high transaction fees. Supported by top-notch security protocols and its unique Proof of Importance (POI) algorithm, NEM has cemented its place in the mainstream crypto space. The following segments explore the latest developments on the blockchain, which include some game-changing partnerships.

Multiversum Announces Partnership NEM and ProximaX

As a dynamic blockchain platform, NEM has made some interesting upgrades in the system, drawing thousands of investors around the globe. The blockchain, which released SDK Version 0.9.3 to support NodeJS 10, has announced XPOS implementation. Besides these upgrades, the blockchain network has anchored its position in the community with some influential partnerships.

Right after the New York Consensus in May, a partnership between Multiversum, NEM, and ProximaX was announced. As per the agreement signed by the founders of the three projects, the partnership aims to integrate Multiversum’s decentralized relational database with the NEM and ProximaX. Speaking of the prospects of the partnership, the Multiversum founder Andrea Taini observed, “Our vision is to develop together a set of tools to be integrated into a sort of Decentralized Operation System. A system that would meet every decentralized application needs. Multiversum provides a decentralized DataBase to secure data in the blockchain, ProximaX from its side provides a decentralized space system to store secure files and managing data streams, and lastly, NEM assists this integration with several tools, representing the engine of the decentralization. Thus, a perfect conjunction of knowledge and capability.”

NEM Ties up With BitPrime 

Among the more recent announcements, NEM’s partnership with BitPrime has become the talking point in the crypto space. According to the update released on medium, the Christchurch-based BitPrime platform will work with NEM Foundation to create a more secure and compliant digital platform to the New Zealand- based residents, enabling them to execute faster transactions with NEM tokens.

Recognised as one of the top retailer platforms, BitPrime is a trusted New Zealand-based platform, specializing in more than 50 cryptocurrencies. With both the teams making the partnership official, there will be a launch event in June to auspicate the partnership through an XEM airdrop and other important incentives. Regarding the announcement of the partnership, NEM’s expansion Director for Australia and New Zealand, Jason Lee reported, “Firms like BitPrime are a key part of the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem. This partnership will signify a big win for both parties because of the shared commitment to help ordinary members of the public and enterprises to understand and trade cryptocurrency”.

Other Developments

The new partnerships, which are meant to bolster NEM’s global reach, mark the beginning of a new phase for the blockchain. The altcoin, which is on the rise, has made many other notable upgrades within its network. Tracing the developments on the blockchain, the tie-up between Tutellus, NEM, and Cryptonomos has created waves in the market. Besides this, other exciting developments, such as FreeMarket’s decision to utilize NEM Blockchain to solve volatility in smart contracts, created fresh interest in the blockchain.

Final Thoughts

As evident from the price charts, NEM has recorded a steady downtrend with occasional highs. Considering the general price trends of the major currencies, the downtrend can be interpreted as a temporary volatile phase. Going by the price movements, the coin dropped -$0.0183 or -7.07 on June 5. The coin, which ranks 15th by market capitalization, is available for trading at $0.250760 USD at the time of writing. Besides, the coin is making a great momentum with new development updates, and the enthusiasm is translated into a positive market response. Speaking in terms of numbers, the coin has moved up by 3.29% from its earlier position. With a market capitalization of $2,256,840,000 USD, NEM (XEM) anticipates making a fresh comeback in the market, while preparing for a massive bull run.

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…
