More investors are involved in the crypto-coin world now than ever before. But ever since Bitcoin appeared there’s been a single question on every body’s mind “I have it now, and how the heck do I use it?”

Well, the thing about Neo is that you can use it already. Many outlets have adopted it, and it’s made transactions easier for them and their customers in international transactions and smart contracts. It’s being called the “Chinese Ethereum,” and it’s collected a huge fan base. It was called Antshares before, and it’s been going through the roof for a full year already.

Being able to use NEO is a milestone in cryptocurrency history. It’s listed on Bittrex which is an assurance of how a Chinese crypto coin is conquering the world (it’s not the only one, Tron was founded in Singapore, but it’s no secret that the leadership and work come out of Beijing).

The sheer usability the coin has secured several essential partnerships for them, and each partnership has made the currency more reliable and trusted even in some remote areas.

So why is it working this well?

Think certainty and scalability for a start. It’s compatible with a wide range of different applications which makes it very flexible. Developers can do decentralized apps easily based on the NEO blockchain without much specialization (if you know Java, which almost every programmer does, you’re on the other side).

The NEO net can manage up to ten thousand transactions per second which put it right on the forefront, even EOS and Tron’s new Main Nets will have a hard time competing with that kind of speeds. 

Neo is also a digital identity tool, and it boasts the best integrity available in the crypto world. You put all that together and what you get is the ideal environment for digital transactions and the coin that can deal with them.

That’s why more partners are standing in line to adopt this blockchain and currency to get real-life solutions. Identity authentication through the Neo app is just too comfortable and convenient, superior to most other options.

DBFT technology backs Neo’s transfers besides the Neo blockchain. That makes every operation secure, final, and very fast wherever you are at any time you need them. They’re seamless, and they are positioning Neo as the future’s platform.

Using Neo in real-life

Neo gives you the best of both fiat and digital currencies. When you transact using Neo you get a digital certificate that has legal validity and, as a user, the network’s platform gives you full safety.

Then there’s the identity verification issue which is so crucial in the digital world. Neo does this better than any other platform for both individuals and organizations. Forget about identifications, Neo just needs your fingerprints or your voice, and you’re ready to go.

The programming language also makes everything so much more comfortable so you can make smarts contracts easily. It just makes it so much more straightforward than other platforms.

Neo’s partners

If you should read the list of companies that are already taking Neo, you’d be amazed. Some of the most significant global players are on the list but also some smaller outlets. The Neo network is increasing very quickly and it won’t be too long before your local store a few blocks away will be adopting it.

Just think about these two global firms: Microsoft and Alibaba

Alibaba is taking Neo coins these days as payment and if you know Alibaba you know you can buy just about everything there wherever you are in the world. They call it the Chinese Amazon but, in fact, it’s better because you can’t do wholesale at Amazon but Alibaba specializes in that. Neo is now working with them on a Mail Certification Service so that international logistics are easier and safer.


Microsoft is using Neo to ensure fast and secure access to its products using NEO as payment. These are just two examples. They illustrate how Neo is positioning itself to bring cryptocurrencies into the real-world and change the game. Global business is being reshaped by this technology already in general, and this crypto coin in particular because it’s so readily compatible with so many systems.

Neo’s price has fluctuated a lot over the last year, as it’s happened to most crypto coins. But its resilience has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt, and serious investors love it. It’s the world’s eleventh coin in terms of market capitalization, and it’s currently at $56.41.

And it can only go up once other big players realize how well the technology will work for Alibaba and Microsoft. The coin is expensive compared to Ripple or Tron, but you still should keep an eye on it.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

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…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

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…
