ReddCoin (RDD) Is Mounting A Challenge To Become The Number One Social Coin (and it’s succeeding…)

ReddCoin (RDD) is on fire. The coin was trading for $0.001 a piece back at the start of the month and, as of this week, trades at $0.01 and a market capitalization of more than $305 million. Twenty-four-hour volume just hit $277 million. That’s some serious activity in a coin that was attracting very little attention just a couple of weeks ago.

So what’s driving the action and can it continue?

We’re going to try and answer that question.

First up, while it’s not what’s causing the rise directly, it’s worth noting that this coin first hit a $100 million market cap at the start of this week. Now, of course, it’s way above that, but this $100 million level has grown to be seen as something of a right of passage for coins in this space over the last twelve months or so. When a coin hits $100 million market cap it’s taken seriously and the action we’ve seen subsequent to RDD breaching this threshold is representative of this fact.

But let’s get a bit more specific.

For anyone new to ReddCoin, it bills itself as the first and only social media specific cryptocurrency. There are a few coins that people use to tip and reward users across social media platforms right now (Ether, Doge, NEM) but none are specifically designed for this purpose and the team at ReddCoin (and the community behind it) is hoping that this sole-focus USP is enough to drive adoption.

So how does it work?

The company is developing a platform that can integrate with the various social media platforms that people use today – Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, etc. – and, once live, users will be able to old ReddCoin in their wallet and use it (by way of the integration) to tip and reward other users for their content and contributions to whatever community they are involved in.

Why would people use this instead of tipping in another currency?

Well, for one, it’s incredibly fast. Transaction times come in at just a few seconds. Second, it’s very cheap to use. Transaction fees come in at somewhere between 0 RDD to 0.002 RDD, depending on the byte size of the transaction.

It also employs what’s called a PoSv algorithm as a transaction processing and confirmation method. This stands for Proof of Stake Velocity and it’s a very efficient (and low energy, so environmentally friendly) way to operate a network.

How does all this play into the question asked above – can the run we are seeing continue into 2018 and beyond?

Well, we’ve just seen the company announce a partnership (and an integration) with Local World Forwarders, which is the first decentralized logistics platform in the world. This should serve as a nice proof of worth partnership and should validate the platform and its integration capabilities, as the partnership matures. In turn, this should pave the way for similar partnerships and integrations, the latter of which is going to be key if this social media specific coin is going to be picked up by the wider social media space as its tip-coin of choice.

We want to see more of these partnerships in place, then, as supportive of a longer-term bull thesis.

We’re avoiding the question – is this one going to run further?

Put simply, yes.

This is a coin that’s answering the call for a low value, quick and user-friendly tipping asset at what we see as being exactly the right time. Right place, right time. Sure, there are other options out there but none of them are as well established as this one and we think the action we are seeing right now is just the beginning of some 2018 strength.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

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.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

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

Bitcoin is soaring high in the cryptomarket once again, and experts are expecting a return of the bullish trend of 2017. The current Bitcoin price is $7,615 as of 23 May 6:56 AM UTC. This significant jump comes just six months after the Bitcoin price plummeted to a low of $3150 in December 2018. Since then, Bitcoin has experienced steady growth and gain in the market. However, in the last 30 days, the Bitcoin price peaked to $8,320.82, its highest price ever. This phenomenal jump occurred in a span of only 10 days breaking the Bitcoin record so far of significant gains made in short time frames. This positive growth has led to experts forecasting the Bitcoin price to hit the $20,000 mark by the end of this year.

Since entering the market almost 11 years ago, Bitcoin is still at the top of the global cryptocurrencies list. The current circulating supply of Bitcoin is at unbelievable 17,708,875 BTC. The market trend of the Bitcoin price has remained positive even when the currency did not maintain an uptrend. Cryptocurrency researchers believe that Bitcoin has the potential to grow up to a high of USD 50,000 within the next two years.

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…
