NEM (XEM) to Join Forces with Abra and Paytomat



NEM Abra Paytomat partnership

NEM is another one of the rising currencies that are going with the flow in the spirit of the recovering market, which means that XEM is trading in the green while experiencing rises, making it no exception from the rest of the trading coins and tokens. Moreover, NEM team has more to look forward to as it was announced that NEM is going to be added to two different payment services that support cryptocurrencies.

NEM Gets Added to Abra

Abra is known to be one of the most cost-effective digital wallet applications, and getting listed on this payment service provider makes a big deal for any crypto. That is how NEM became a part of a total number of cryptos that are available on Abra digital wallet.

NEM has been added a couple of days ago along with four other currencies, which means that all Abra users will now be able to buy and sell NEM, Monero, Verge, NEO, and Lisk.

Bill Barhydt, CEO of Abra, stated that he felt the need to add more cryptos to the already existing list of cryptocurrencies supported by Abra, as that way cryptocurrencies get more chances of acquiring a mainstream status. At the same time, the visibility of the added coins and tokens gets consequently increased with this case.

Abra stands for one of the most cost-effective ways of keeping, buying and selling cryptos because this digital wallet app doesn’t ask for a deposit. In addition to this case, Abra also takes no charging fees for the trading of the listed digital assets. Altogether, these features make Abra a pretty desirable crypto service provider.

With Abra, all listed coins have, in a way, gained an advantage in oppose to their peers, simply because Abra makes it pretty easy to trade with cryptos, which means that users who are having difficult time finding their way around exchanges, will find Abra pretty easy to use as it is made to be user-friendly ultimately. Simultaneously, NEM, along with other currencies is getting a higher exposure which contributes to the accessibility of the coin.

NEM Joins Hands with Paytomat

Another great addition to NEM team is the most recent tie-up of Paytomat and XEM coin. Although this conjoining means that NEM will get more on its value; Paytomat has even greater interest in NEM and its technology. In case you haven’t heard about Paytomat, it is a payment service provider specialized in dealing with cryptocurrencies.

While NEM is supposed to get a hold of mass adoption with Paytomat, which would consequently increase its value, Paytomat is looking to find a perfect network to support their future ventures. That is how they concluded that NEM makes up for the ideal choice based on what they are looking for in a digital asset.

Paytomat is based in Ukraine with Yurii Olentir as the head of the team. As their CEO, Olentir has stated that Paytomat is looking for a platform that would be able to provide fast processing time along with low fees for every transaction made on the platform. In addition to these features, Paytomat is looking for a platform that has a strong dev team behind it as well as a potential for scalable infrastructure. Yurii Olentir also stated that NEM’s features match all the requirements for the venture Paytomat is planning on going through.

Further on this matter, Paytomat’s CEO claims that he had used XEM coins for paying for his coffee on one occasion. As he said, this assured him that NEM is ready for the mainstream waters. With this joining of forces, Paytomat should become a more functional platform for making fast transactions while NEM will get to enter a new phase of mass adoption.

How is NEM doing at the Current Moment?

NEM (XEM) is following up with the current trend in the market, which means that this coin is being traded in the green against the dollar, along with the majority of other currencies.

Dealing among top 20 cryptos with the ranking of the 14th best currency according to the global coin ranking list, XEM had another rise today, trading up in the green against the dollar by 4.30%.

In addition to this rise, XEM is also going up against BTC, which means that this coin is doing slightly better in the market at the current moment when compared to the “original coin”.

With the latest hike, NEM is going up against BTC by 1.40%, while being traded at the price of 0.42$ per XEM unit. NEM marked its all-time high back at the beginning of January when this currency was dealing around the price of 1.66$ for XEM coin.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on 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 Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

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…
