The crypto market is currently in a very exciting place, as the new bull run inspired numerous investors to search for new coins to add to their crypto portfolio. One such coin, that has started to gain more and more attention is Qtum. Now, many are wondering what can be expected of the coin, and more importantly — what to expect from Qtum price.
Before we go into price predictions, let’s take a quick second to see what Qtum is all about. This is a Singapore-based crypto that was launched back in September 2017. It is pronounced “quantum”, and it’s much more than a simple crypto — it is actually a business-facing platform. What this means is that the coin’s design makes it perfect for all sort of business-related tasks. It also supports the creation of dApps and smart contracts through a combination of Ethereum and Bitcoin-like technologies.
However, the coin also has a large potential to solve some major issues that both of these coins are facing to this day.
What to expect from Qtum price?
Let’s start with a reminder that price predictions are a useful tool in an investors’ arsenal, but are hardly the most precise one. The price is predicted through a combination of multiple aspects, such as coin’s behavior so far, it’s goal, technology, community, the team behind it, and alike. Still, the predictions cannot be accurate since nobody knows what will happen in the future.
The best that any analyst can do is give an educated guess, but even that might change if the market has a change of heart. With that in mind, let’s see what crypto experts expect from Qtum price in the following period.
Qtum price in 2018
As every other crypto, Qtum has suffered due to a bear market throughout the year. And yes, the year has had a few brief periods of recovery, but the bears always returned soon after that. Now, the bulls seem to control the space, and whether this will last or not is anyone’s guess.
Qtum price is currently at $3.91, with a 17.12% increase over the last 24 hours. Its current market cap is almost $348 million, which puts the coin at the 28th place on CoinMarketCap’s list of largest cryptos. Additionally, the coin has a total market cap of 100,905,568 QTUM, and a current circulating supply of 88.9 million coins. This is a good news, as the lower number of coins allows cryptos to have a higher price.
Because of that, and due to the fact that Qtum is actually a pretty good project, most predictions claim that its price will reach more than decent heights. Some last year’s predictions have seen QTUM’s price hitting $20 by December 2018. However, the experts did not predict the bearish 2018. While this can still happen, the coin would need a massive price surge to reach it, similar to the one that ended in 2017. Whether it will actually happen or not still remains to be seen.
As for the next few years, the analysts remain optimistic about Qtum. The project offers dApps and smart contracts creation, it’s compatible with ETH technology, it made some pretty big partnerships so far, and the demand for it continues to grow. Trying to guess its exact price in three, five, or ten years from now would not mean much, given the volatility of the market.
However, with all of this in mind, it is clear that the coin does have a bright future ahead of it, and some real potential to rise to greatness.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
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?
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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
