It has been a busy week for the top twenty cryptocurrencies in the market, with unexpected spikes and slumps in prices experienced by almost all tokens in question. Of late, one of the most successful cryptocurrencies in recent times, NEO, has also not been spared from registering red candles on the daily chart, six of them to be precise.

NEO, which has seen immense success over the years since its introduction 4 years ago, is currently placed at Rank 11 according to coinmarketcap.com, valued at $52.98 USD as of 31/05/18. The current market cap for the Cryptocurrency is $3,443,869,000 USD, which is reflective of the success they have attained. It should be noted, that like the majority of other cryptocurrencies, NEO’s price has fluctuated to a great degree in the last 2 years. For instance, NEO was valued at $ 47.99 (High) on Aug 16, 2017, and was followed by a direct slump to $30.44 (High) as on Sep 04 2017. The situation again replicated early this year, when NEO’s price reached a High of $168.14 (High) on January 29 and then again straight down to $66.70 on March 18th.

Current Market Scenario

On Wednesday (30th May), the bulls failed to maintain momentum, with NEO’s price reaching a high of $53.31. In particular, the heavily traded NEO/USD pair ran into stiff resistance within the $53 area. Analysts everywhere agree that the NEO/USD pair is still locked in a “sideways consolidation”. They also agree that since the pair has gone below the 23.6% Fibonacci level, and firm support is to be experienced at the 45$ mark.

NEO in the news this past week

NEO has comparatively maintained a low profile in the news lately, with the recent partnership news with Ontology completed on 24th May. It was reported that a joint task force with an estimated total capital contribution of RMB 4 million is in the works after a joint collaborative effort by The Ontology Network and NEO. The main aim of this joint task force is to develop an industry standard for APIs as well as other improvements in smart contract and cross-chain technology. The team consists of high profile team members from both projects as well as additional handpicked members from the NEO community. Blockchain project Wen Junie, Tan Yuan and Peter Lin are also linked with the project.

The team is tasked with making improvements in the following sectors:

• To develop a GO Compiler, complete with its own development environment compatible with the NEO VM.
• To increase the adaptability of NEO VM, making it the sole platform to run smart contracts.
• To develop a standardized SYSCALL rule for a namespace, which in turn enables cross chain deployment of smart contracts.
• Conducting Research & Development on Highly Efficient Native Contract Mechanism

The task force, as mentioned above, is also responsible for developing API Standardization, particularly,

• Standardizing Data in the protocol layers of both Ontology and NEO
• Sharing some part of the SDKs and development tools on both the networks.
• Standardizing address encoding to increase user-friendliness.

Final Thoughts and Verdicts

The fact that NEO investments are radically different than other similar cryptos makes it a viable investment option in the coming weeks. NEO focuses on real-world application of implementing blockchain technology. The team has also designed the ecosystem in such a way, so as to provide compliance with the anti-crypto regulations of China. If past trends are to be followed and believed, the path to NEO’s success cannot be undermined, and the Cryptocurrency is expected to rise in value again in the next few months.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

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…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
