Proof Stellar (XLM) Is Greater Than Ethereum

Published

Stellar (XLM)

The word on the street is that the collapse of Ethereum (ETH) is inevitable and it is only a matter of time before it all falls down like a stack of dominoes. One of the reasons that ETH is headed towards a Doomsday scenario, is the fact that there has been a failure to scale the network to deal with DApps that need the network to process more transactions per second than the current limit of 25.

Another reason that  ETH will die a natural death, is the fact that the gas fee on the network is high compared to others such as Tron (TRX) –  which has free transactions. The natural order of technology is that developers will choose to create DApps on cheaper and faster networks.

Ethereum developers are working on a way around all these issues. One of the most recent efforts is the agreement to postpone the Difficulty Bomb by implement new code in the next hard fork of Constantinople. This new code will keep ETH in the clear for about one and a half years further meaning it is not a permanent solution. This is where Stellar (XLM) comes in to play.

How is Stellar (XLM) Greater than Ethereum?

A team from the StellarX decentralized exchange recently ran their own at-scale load tests on the Ethereum network and the results were scary. The research they did revealed that Ethereum was being used by entrepreneurs for all the wrong uses. As earlier mentioned, high costs on the Ethereum network and slow performance cull the entire ecosystem.

One of the strengths of Ethereum, as highlighted in the report by the team at StellarX, is that if you are building a distributed computer program with no sole owner and no centralized decision-making apparatus, Ethereum was a great choice. One such example is the Augur project where you need a fully automated, ownerless way to make decisions about real-world events. This is done to circumvent regulatory enforcement which cannot pinpoint a central ‘bookmaker’ on the betting platform of Augur.

But many blockchain companies are using the Ethereum network for tasks it cannot handle to the desired expectation. Such DApps are for gaming, trading, finance, and others that need a high throughput with low transaction fees.

If it is such applications that developers want, then the Stellar network can provide the qualities needed.

The transaction fee on the Stellar network is considerably small when compared to that on the Ethereum network. There are two values used to calculate fees on the Stellar network: Base fee (0.00001 XLM) and Base reserve (0.5 XLM). The fee for a transaction is the number of operations the transaction contains multiplied by the base fee. This means that for the fee to total 1 XLM, it would have to contain 100,000 transactions. The cost of 1 XLM right now is $0.22. This is still cheap on the Stellar network.

When it comes to transactions per second (tps) on the Stellar network, the network has been known to handle 1,000 tps comfortably. This figure is 40 times higher than that of Ethereum at 25 tps.

Summing it all up, the Stellar network is a better candidate for DApps that require a higher throughput and lower transaction fees. Ethereum, on the other hand, has enjoyed the spotlight and perhaps this is why entrepreneurs keep using the platform for all the wrong applications. Some projects initially on the ETH network have migrated to Stellar after the developers realize the roadblocks on the ETH network as highlighted above. With time, this number of migrating DApps is sure to grow as the technical capabilities of the Stellar network continue to be known in the crypto-verse.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Published

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
