Truth be told, Bitcoin (BTC) is the safest cryptocurrency investment option out there. The digital asset has even been crowned King due to the simple fact that the crypto markets usually respond in tandem with the general action of BTC. Evidence of this is the recently delayed Bitcoin ETF announcement by the SEC that has led the market in a sense of turmoil for the last 3 days. BTC has since increased its dominance to over 48%.

But there could be another Crypto King in the horizon who is backed by a crypto exchange that expects $1 Billion in profits for 2018.

The exchange known as Binance was reported to be projecting annual profits for the year of 2018 that is to the tune of $1 Billion. The same exchange has a very stable coin that is used as a base pair on the exchange and to pay for trading fees. This coin is Binance Coin (BNB). This coin was how the exchange funded its ICO last year in July 2017. Therefore, backed by such a profitable exchange ($1 Billion in projected profits), BNB is sure to continue gaining in value for the foreseeable future.

BNB is currently ranked 16th on Coinmarketcap.com and valued at $12.39 at the moment of writing this. The total supply of the coin is 192.44 Million with a circulating supply of 95.512 Million. This then brings us to the second reason why BNB should become an investment option.

During the ICO, 200 Million BNB coins were minted in total. As illustrated in the project’s whitepaper, the exchange would burn some BNB every annual quarter till there were only 100 Million BNB coins remaining in the total supply. This means that the difference of 7.56 Million BNB seen above in the total supply, has been destroyed by the organization in the last year and they intend on continuing to do so. As the amount of BNB reduces in the markets, so shall the value of the coin with time.

A third reason why BNB should be on your radar is that the Binance exchange plans on extending its services by opening offices/exchanges in Uganda and Malta. This means more visibility for the exchange as well as new clients for trading. This will increase the trading volume and the use of BNB on the now global exchanges. The latter will increase its demand and its price.

Finally, and observing the general trend of BNB in the crypto markets, it has continually risen in value over the months due to the aforementioned reasons. Its history is of continual increment in value with time can be seen with the shared chart above. This means that the same trend of increased value will be observed in the future. BNB is, therefore, a better buy and HODL option than Bitcoin (BTC).

Just like many other cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, as well as Litecoin, currently sit in vitality as much as the market is concerned. Will Bitcoin and Litecoin recover as much as many have been speculating? Apparently, it is hard to tell how the investors will react to all these recent events.

When looking at the current trend of the volatility of Litecoin and bitcoin prices in US dollars, it is quite clear to note that there is a decrease in volatility. The price of bitcoin stands at $6,574 with a slight change (24h) of +0.06%. On the other hand, Litecoin is trading at $53.94 with a difference (24h) of -1.45% at the press time. Basically, at the moment there isn’t a significant downward movement between the two cryptocurrencies.

Spectators Never Fail to Give Reasons

As always many spectators will seek to give some reasons for the trends and some think that the downward move is just a manipulation by some small group so that they can outscore the stock market. Perhaps, it is a bear market, and with the volatility of the coins being technically low, it means it is cheaper, which is definitely better.

The Real Meaning

What the trends literally mean is that there is an accountable resistance with both Bitcoin and Litecoin contrary to the expectations of many who were anticipating at least some positive movement after the sharp market rise last week.

However, that doesn’t mean that…

If Tether crashes, will that money pour into Bitcoin?

Tether

For a long time now, the so-called stablecoin, Tether (USDT) has been a topic of discussion within the crypto community.

Tether, as a stablecoin, is said to be fully backed by the USD. This allowed it to be one of only a handful of cryptos that can avoid volatility issues, due to the fact that it is backed by a stable fiat currency. However, for as long as it was around, Tether was very secretive of its bank accounts and funds in general.

While claiming to have the ability to back each of its USDT coins, many have questioned whether or not this can be true. At the time of writing (October 16, 2018), Tether has released 2,256,421,736 USDT in circulation. This means that it needs to have at least $2,256,421,736 in order to cover its circulating supply.

At this point, three questions emerge, and answering them could very well change the future of this stablecoin. The questions are as follows:

  1. Are all USDT coins fully backed?
  2. If yes, then where did that much money come from?
  3. If not, what will happen when the market discovers the lie?

Tether continues to keep secrets

As mentioned, Tether has always claimed to be able to back each of its coins. However, instead of operating on transparency, the coin used different tools, mostly opaqueness, misdirection, and playing the victim whenever someone tried to unveil what is truly going…

Despite all its recent progress, cryptocurrencies still do not inspire trust in a lot of people. Many view them as unsafe money, with its very nature being doubtful. However, a recent report by the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Nuclear Physics shows that situation regarding cryptocurrencies may not be as bad as it seems. In fact, the report claims that Bitcoin might even be a better currency than it looks like.

Bitcoin vs traditional money

Bitcoin, as many are already aware of, is the first cryptocurrency. It was created a decade ago and was officially launched in 2009. But, even though it has been around for around 9 years at this point, it is still largely mistrusted by a lot of investors, especially when it comes to large institutions.

However, thanks to the Cracow-based Institute of Nuclear Physics’ recent report, this common opinion might actually be wrong. The Institute has conducted a detailed statistical analysis of the BTC market and has published the results in a scientific journal called Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science.

Surprisingly enough, the report portraits Bitcoin in a very positive light.

The report started by commenting on the credibility of traditional money. In the past, money that people have been using was backed by specific material commodities, such as gold. These commodities gave the money its value and served as a guarantee that the money actually has worth. This is…
