ReddCoin Creates a Social Media Economy

Validation and ‘likes’ drive the social economy of the Internet. Everyone who posts regularly on social media wants to be seen as an influencer – someone who sways public opinion. These influencers are the ideal way to expand new brands. They create organic interest in products and engage the community in relevant conversations. As it stands, these influencers have the arduous task of monetizing their actions through soliciting payments or gaining ad revenue. ReddCoin intends to change that dynamic, providing a social media tipping system.

Their ReddCoin cryptocurrency aims to create real, monetary incentive for the sharing of ideas. The system provides for smaller content creators as well, allowing trade between users. While accumulating ‘likes’ may be fun, accumulating ReddCoin is fun and lucrative.

The Monetizing of Social Media

The original founders of ReddCoin had the vision to create a tipping ecosystem within the major social media sites. They saw the willingness of the average user to throw out ‘likes’ left and right – and saw an opportunity to add value. ReddCoin was created as a Proof of Work coin in 2014, using the Litecoin code base. This made it faster than the legacy Bitcoin blockchain, with a higher volume and lower fees. ReddCoin did not need to have a high price per unit, as the goal of the tipping campaign was microtransactions.

A user may be entirely willing to throw a few cents towards their favorite social media personality. They are much less likely to donate large sums. This microtransaction economy still adds up quickly for larger influencers, while providing a non-negligible amount to even smaller content producers. To help those individual users gain more of a stake in the coin, ReddCoin switched to Proof of Stake/Velocity soon after release. This randomized coin age-based distribution ensured that anyone with a portion of ReddCoin would gain more over time. These coins would then enter the ecosystem in the form of tips.

Social X and the Redd-ID

In order to make the system work, it was critical to make it as easy as possible. To this end, ReddCoin sought to eliminate a series of issues that made Bitcoin difficult for the average person. The first was the overly long and essentially impossible to remember wallet addresses. A Bitcoin address is a string of alphanumeric characters with no reference to one another. A deterministic wallet like ReddCoin uses a passphrase of randomized words instead. The combination of words is much easier to remember while maintaining safety from guessing.

To further this, they are also implementing the Redd-ID intra-blockchain social ID. Users no longer need their recipient’s randomized wallet number. Instead, names can be registered directly to the blockchain and used as an address for funds. This alleviates the difficulty of alphanumeric strings on both ends of the transaction. Although Bitcoin is inherently anonymous, ReddCoin is more transparent and social. As such, users can view the Redd-ID of anyone that has sent them currency.

A Road to Widespread Adoption

These alterations to the usual blockchain are tailor-made to make ReddCoin the coin of choice for social media. Users who would otherwise not adopt cryptocurrency will find it easy and accessible. Once they are in possession of a supply of ReddCoin, they will be that much more likely to use it for their own purposes. If ReddCoin can be successful, their user base could explode overnight – people are always looking for new social technology to adopt.

Recently the new ReddCoin development team formed the ReddCoin Global, LLC to further the goals of the cryptocurrency. This is a big step that adds some extremely valuable consistency to the platform. Their newly released roadmap shows an ambitious pathway to continued success. The cryptocurrency is already in use through social media bots – tips can be sent. Their ultimate goal of single button functionality could make them the undisputed leader in social media currency.

The Financial Future of ReddCoin

ReddCoin was never intended to have a high price point per unit. They want individual coins to be easily usable for microtransaction tips – and that gives investors an excellent opportunity. The current price of ReddCoin is floating around $0.007, which means even the smallest investors can accumulate a large sum of the currency. Their market cap is still relatively low in the scale of top cryptocurrencies, but they have proven in the past that the price per unit can reach as high as $0.025, nearly four times the current price.

This may be a rare opportunity to get a well known and established currency at a discounted price. As the functionality and adoption of the coin increase, the value will follow suit. In addition, the coin’s Proof of Stake/Velocity stats means that anyone who holds ReddCoin in their wallet will gradually mint additional coins. This is the cryptocurrency equivalent of dividends, offering a consistent return on investment.

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

Ripple

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
