OmiseGo (OMG) Might Be Your Next Investment in 2018: Here’s Why

Published

OmiseGo

OmiseGo, currently ranked as the 20th-best currency in the global coin ranking list, has been going through some interesting changes for the past couple of months. Besides getting a new listing and preparing for developmental changes, OMG is seen rising up against the dollar, in portion due to the bullish trend in the market that has been going on for the last several days and partially due to a couple of great news. Here is why OmiseGo could easily become your next investment.

OmiseGo Gets a New Listing

Listings always make a great occasion alongside with representing an entirely new opportunity of the listed coin, as the mentioned coin consequently gets on its exposure, being added to the new exchange market.

This time, OMG made quite a move by getting a listing on one of the most promising exchange platforms in the Indian market, acquiring a listing on Unocoin.

Unocoin stands for one of the greatest exchange platforms in India, altogether making one of the top platforms in the Asian market. That means that OMG got another great opportunity to penetrate into the Asian market, that way also acquiring an increased trading volume, which became evident in the last 36 hours, when OMG went up by over 7% against the dollar, while it got another rise of 2.80% against the dollar in the last couple of hours in the time of this writing.

It is considered that OmiseGo managed to acquire a slightly higher rise in oppose to its peers due to the event of getting a listing on Unocoin in the last couple of days.

OmiseGo to Merge with Cosmos: Hard Spoon Following Up Soon

The term hard fork sounds familiar to every crypto enthusiast; however, there is the term of a hard spoon as well. Hard spoon might come off as less familiar to the crypto market as not many digital assets take their chances with a hard spoon.

In case you are not sure what hard spoon is, this is a process that includes minting.

By minting the two different cryptos, you get an entirely new crypto, which allows the new asset to acquire the total balance of both cryptos.

OmiseGo is already working on preparations for a hard spoon, as OMG will get merged with Cosmos, which is a new asset.

Once these two cryptos get merged, the two different balances will become one, so OmiseGo will get the balance of Cosmos as well, which might consequently take it further up from the 20th spot on the global coin ranking list.

The hard spoon should take place on the chain called Tendermint, after which OmiseGo will be merged with Cosmos. The work on the preparation for hard spoon has been going on for a couple of months already, and even if it is not yet certain when the hard spoon will take place, it is considered that the hard spoon will occur by the end of June.

OmiseGo, Q2 and the Mobile Client

OmiseGo is a unique asset in oppose to its peers as instead of chasing after getting OMG massively adopted in real life, OMG is aiming at creating an ecosystem that will represent a safe environment for efficient interconnection between digital currencies and fiat values.

The goal that OMG is aiming to complete during the second quarter is acquiring a mobile client for OMG chain.  That is why, in order to improve the service of OMG network, the team behind OmiseGo decided to start working on creating a mobile client for their users, which would serve the purpose of staking OMG, altogether increasing the number of clients on OMG, while increasing the volume of staking among the community of OMG supporters.

The official date of the release of the mobile client is yet to be announced, however, it is most probably the case that the mobile client will see the daylight by the end of the second quarter, providing yet another valid reason for owning OMG by the end of 2018.

OmiseGo Performance

During the last 24 hours, OMG acquired a rise of around 7%, while we can see it now as it is rising by 2.70% while rising against BTC as well.

OMG is dropping when compared to Ethereum, however, this is not a surprise as the majority of the currencies can be seen rising up for the past couple of days in the sign of rebounding.

Following the latest change in the market, OmiseGo could make a solid good investment as it is still available at the price of 12.03$ per one OMG, with great chances to get back to its record value of 26$.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
