Ontology (ONT) focuses on incorporating businesses from all sectors into the blockchain technology. Individuals and different institutions can also join in to create their own blockchains or applications on the Ontology platform. The development team of the crypto coin claims that different trust mechanisms have been used to develop a unique decentralized trust mechanism that will make the public blockchains and applications secure. In fact, the recent announcement of the partnership of two giants NAGA and Ontology is expected to bring a new look to the fintech market.

NAGA and Ontology Partner Up to Redesign Fintech Market

On the 3rd of May 2018, Ontology and NAGA announced that they will work together to bring on a “significant and powerful change” in the approach taken by a company to do business. By this partnership, Ontology will take a step closer to its goal that is, introducing public blockchains along with smart contact systems and complete distributed ledgers to the financial-technology or fintech market.

NAGA is often considered to have one of the most rousing ecosystems in the cryptocurrency market and is the first to offer a secure and transparent escape route to the cryptocurrency world to a financial instrument. Ontology was released in the crypto market in late March 2018 and is studiously working on providing a distributed trust collaboration platform. This partnership will see the two giants putting their heads together to create a new generation of distributed trust mechanisms and public blockchain that will become the base of real business applications and situations. They will experiment in application development areas, outreach and incubation.

“We are super excited about the Ontology project and we are eager to announce new developments in cooperation with the platform. We believe that it will help to boost and grow our business exponentially.”

  • Benjamin Bilski, NAGA Founder and Executive Director

“We are happy to welcome NAGA to build up the application ecosystem through wielding Ontology’s next-generation public chain infrastructure […] We feel confident that together we can open up the international market, expand the Ontology ecosystem, and advance global blockchain development.”

  • Juni Li, founder of Ontology (ONT)

Presently, NAGA is working on projects like NAGA TRADER, NAGA COIN (NGC), NAGA WALLET, and NAGA CARD. Moreover, the ecosystem of NAGA is well accepted in the cryptocurrency space. Ontology’s inclusive trust mechanism will only strengthen this massive project. It is not only that their objectives match, this partnership is logically sound too. Looking at the objectives of these two giants, NAGA wants to provide the best products and financially incorporate everyone and Ontology is completely centered on identity, trust, data exchange, and authorization. Ontology is also trying to incorporate the medical space, government and insurance industry in the blockchain technology. Joining hands will ensure a secured space that will help in financial inclusion of the individuals.

UPbit Listing Ontology (ONT)

Prior to the partnership announcement, on the 2nd of May 2018, another big event took place in the pages of Ontology (ONT). In the Twitter account of UPbit exchange it was revealed, “Thursday 23:00:00 (KST) #Upbit will give 5% of $ONT holdings to customers who hold ONT coins at the time of the snapshots. Maximum Payout is 1,000 ONT weekly up to 125,000 ONT per week. If coins are sold or withdrawn, accounts will not be eligible for payouts. @OntologyNetwork

The new UPbit listing of Ontology (ONT) had caused the price to surge a little, considering it was released in late March. One can only expect that the news of NAGA and Ontology partnership and the UPbit listing will cause the price of ONT to rise. At the time of writing the price of ONT shows approximately $9.80 USD and a market cap of nearly $1,103,683,909 USD on coinmarketcap.com. (As of 4th May 2018) Now, it is to be whether the price action continues to move in the positive in this weekend and even later on.

Launch of SmartX, a Smart Contract Tool

The launch of SmartX by Ontology (ONT) comes with many unique features that help in wiping out all the issues of a smart contract. The users often find it difficult to develop the products due to limitations in the programming tools of smart contracts. With SmartX, the users can compile, set up and invoke smart contracts easily. Presently, SmartX supports C# and Python language but, in the future Java, JavaScript, Go Rust and some other programming languages will be incorporated. SmartX, an integrated development environment (IDE) can be used by the developers to customize the contracts.

It seems that the pages of the diary of Ontology (ONT) are full and the crypto coin is more likely to continue to add some serious partnerships and features in its bag. These are also going to attract some investors, keeping a positive effect on the price action. The only thing to do now is to wait and watch the ‘progress’ of Ontology (ONT).

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.

KaratGold Background
