Since the end of 2nd quarter of the crypto market, investors and traders have been closely monitoring cryptocurrencies besides the top 10. Such coins have tremendous potential to rise above and prove to be extremely profitable in time. Golem Network Token is one such token which has grabbed every individual’s attention towards itself. The token is trading below 1$ at present but the team behind Golem is focussing more on the functionality of their project and constantly hitting headlines because of their achievements. This is why the value of the token is consistently making its way to cross the $1 mark and getting listed on renowned crypto exchanges. In this article, we shall find out more about the idea behind Golem Network and its success.

The idea of Golem Network:

Golem network is known to be a worldwide supercomputer which is decentralized and has the power of all machines that are connected to its network. This basically means, that in Golem ecosystem, a user can loan their unusable or spare computer resources to someone else who might have its requirement to execute complex tasks in exchange for money. The core idea behind creating golem network makes ideal for those who are more likely to execute intensive calculations for complex projects such as Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language processing and even machine learning to explore DNA. But the team is known to be working on CGI rendering. Golem can boost the processing power of a computer’s CPU and GPU.

The golem network token is an Ethereum based ERC20 token which is paid by the user for renting computational power. Providers can freely set their price in GNT as the rental price. Since Golem works as a marketplace, therefore, these prices will reach equilibrium over time. GNT is also required to submit deposits to providers and for participation in the application registry.

Key Attributes of Golem Network:

Also known as the Airbnb of computers, golem has come a long way since the day it was created. The Golem network ecosystem has two key attributes or features which are;

  • Application Registry

It’s an Ethereum smart contract which was created for developers so that they can publish their own Golem applications. It makes the process of finding users and requestors to get the tools their searching for easy.

  • Transaction Framework

This framework consists a set of requirements which a developer has to follow while implementing a transaction model for their Golem application. Golem is extremely powerful and completely decentralized. It’s a global network which connects everything from personal laptops to data centers.

The best part of a project such as a golem network being decentralized is that it can never be monopolized. This technology is a huge step towards the future and eventually when it’ll be combined with advances of new age technologies such as IPFS/Filecoin, Whisper, Swarm, DEVp2p and Ethereum it’ll substitute the existing data centers that are currently powering the internet. All direct competitors of golem network are centralized and given the nature and functionality of golem, its rivals cannot measure up to Golem’s price or power.

Launch on Ethereum Mainnet:

Back in the mid of April, Golem team announced that the golem’s beta ‘Brass’ is live and running on the Ethereum Mainnet after completing a year and a half of its successful $8 million USD initial coin offering. This served as a major milestone achievement for Golem network according to their roadmap. To those who do not know what ‘Brass’ is, it’s a proof-of-concept that presents early investors with a basic platform so that they can test the network. The long-term of golem network is providing cost-efficient and the open-source option to the present cloud computing platforms. After ‘Brass’ went live on Ethereum mainnet, the team declared a bug bounty program which will enable developers to use the new platform and help Golem’s team to find any pre-existent bug and refine their experience. When the initial trial process is completed, golem team has planned to launch a general purpose online computational cloud. Their next release is ‘Clay’ which will provide globally decentralized supercomputers by establishing up integration with computational synchronization.

Result of Listing on Binance and Bithmub:

On 27th April Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchange announced the listing of Golem network token (GNT) on social media. As soon as the news came out, GNT market rallied towards their supposed moonshot. The asset went up to 45% that week and reached a price point of $0.64 the next day of listing announcement. After acquiring absolute volume records the GNT prices in term of BTC is improving and may continue. Today, on 3rd May Bithumb which is famed to be one of the most influential crypto exchanges declared listing of GNT. As a result, Golem is sure to reach a new peak in the coming days. The golem team also declared that until this stage, it has liquidated approximately half of the 820,000 ETH that was raised during ICO.

Final thoughts:

At the time of writing, Golem is ranked as the 43rd biggest cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap. The price of GNT is experiencing a surge of 40.57% which has taken the price point to $0.80 USD. The total market capitalization of golem network rests at approximately $664 million USD while according to the official data, around $213 million USD worth of GNT has been exchanged within 24 hours. Hence, it’s clear to see that Golem is pacing quickly towards its goal and the market sentiments are also in its support. So, it’s safe to say that golem’s upcoming release and exchange listings will pave its way towards $1 soon.

How is the Crypto Market Changing?

It has been around a month and a half since the start of 2019, and there are already some pretty obvious changes in the way the crypto market operates, especially when compared to the last year. Early 2018 was almost a complete opposite. The previous year started with cryptocurrencies at their strongest, only to see them crashing down after a few weeks. Back then, the ICO model was still quite strong, and so was the hype surrounding the crypto space. New investors kept entering the space, and new startups emerged with their tokens ready to be sold.

As the year progressed, things started to change. The prices continued to drop, the ICO model went down from around $1.4 billion in raised funds at the beginning of the year to only $100 million in the last month.

The ICO model lost investors’ trust, as many of the projects turned out to be either too weak to survive after the crypto winter struck, or scams which tricked investors out of their money and disappeared. Not to mention that the increase in ICOs popularity attracted the regulators who cracked down on them pretty hard, especially in the US.

With all of that happening, it is of a small surprise that the investors started giving up on ICOs, especially with the constant drops in prices which saw even the largest coins…

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
