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.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
