$1 Zil price prediction

The crypto-markets have gone against the grain after the SEC made the announcement that they will need more time to consider the rule change on the CBOE sponsored Bitcoin ETF. Many crypto traders and enthusiasts, had expected the worst which included BTC falling to levels of $5,800. But the opposite happened and the King of Crypto is now testing new levels of $6,700. XRP has also ridden the wave of glory and peaked briefly at $0.80 from levels of $0.27 only a few days ago.

$1 ZIL Price Prediction Due to A Market Recovery

It is therefore with the market events of the past few days that we can conclude that a market recovery is slowly becoming a reality. Ex-hedge fund manager and Billionaire, Michael Novogratz, confidently stated on the 12th of September, that Bitcoin had reached a bottom when it touched $6,200 on that day.

At first, his words were received with a lot of skepticism in the crypto-verse, but the market action witnessed in the last few days is enough evidence to agree with Mr. Novogratz and perhaps even call him a soothsayer.

As soon as this market recovery is confirmed in the next few weeks, the $1 ZIL price prediction can slowly become a reality.

Bakkt Factor

Before we get to the technical developments that would lead to Zilliqa getting to $1, there is the additional groundbreaking Wall Street firm of Bakkt that aims at making Bitcoin and other digital assets mainstream investment instruments. The firm intends on doing this by using already existing regulations and infrastructure to make this possible.

The firm clarified on their vision via twitter as follows, “Bakkt uses the existing, time-tested, regulated futures market infrastructure to introduce physically delivered Bitcoin and warehousing to global markets. All aspects of the existing futures market will, for the first time, be part of physical delivery and warehousing of Bitcoin.”

ZIL Technical Developments

With an existing Testnet, the Zilliqa team is carrying out final touches for the Mainnet launch that has been scheduled for somewhere between the end of this year and early next year. Once live, the team at Zilliqa has promised the following:

  • Running on a scalable system that can support a high number of transactions per second (high throughput) without network clogging
  • More secure platform by using Scilla, our safe-by-design smart contract language
  • Low transaction fees
  • To maintain decentralization

The existing testnet has showcased that it can handle a throughput of 2,828 transactions per minute with only 6 active shards. Therefore, it is exciting imagining what the Mainnet will accomplish in terms of throughput once fully functional.

DApps and Initiative With Mindshare

The team at ZIL recently updated on their joint initiative with Mindshare which is a global media and marketing services company. The firm has over 7,000 employees and $34.5 Billion in annual revenue. Through project Proton, both Mindshare and Zilliqa will work together to evaluate the ZIL protocol and how best it solves major issues in the advertising industry.

The Zilliqa team also plans on hitting the ground running once the Mainnet is launched. They have a running grant program that is meant to cater to start-ups that want to create DApps on the platform. They are constantly looking for great ideas and developers to bring them to fruition.

In conclusion, the Zilliqa project is a very promising project in terms of giving a fresh new platform for secure smart contracts and decentralized apps. Once the Mainnet goes live and with a crypto market recovers, the $1 ZIL price prediction can become a reality.

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.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
