Stellar (XLM) poised to see massive gains next year, here’re the reasons why

Have you seen Stellar Lumen’s (XLM) logo? It’s a rocket heading for the sky.

It just so happens that Stellar Lumens has been gathering a lot of momentum over the last year, so next year we could really see its native token (called XLM) reach for the sky and beyond. In this article, we tell you the reasons why.

Interstellar

This is the result of a partnership between Stellar Lumens and Chain, which already boasted a lot of important partners such as NASDAQ, Citigroup or Visa.

It’s the for-profit arm of the Stellar Lumens project, and they’re already working with Chain’s partners in applying the blockchain technology in many different ways such as decentralized, smart information systems and payments across borders.

The rise of the Security Tokens

Many blockchain projects have financed themselves through ICO’s. This practice may disappear soon because it creates all kinds of problems with financial regulations in many countries around the globe. The new alternative will be the SCO, which will be based in “security tokens” that already exist and can be circulated at once. This gives Stellar an important advantage over other tokens.

IBM

Not enough is said about IBM and Stellar. IBM has a lot of interest in blockchain technology. They are currently pursuing more than 500 blockchain projects around the planet, and their blockchain of choice is none other than Stellar Lumens.

If that wasn’t enough, one of Stellar’s use cases is to eliminate friction from international transfers among banks, and IBM is already working with about 90% of the world’s banks in one way or the other. This gives Stellar a privileged position when it comes to securing partnerships in the financial world.

Starlight

Starlight is an instant payments channel. It’s deployed over the Interstellar network, and it uses XLM as a mediating currency to settle payments across borders. It’s quick, it’s safe, and it charges no transfer fees. It’s Ripple’s worst nightmare. This service will increase demand and usefulness for the XLM coin which, in turn, will drive its price up in exchanges.

Stellar X

It will be a new cryptocurrency exchange that will feature several innovations. First of all, it’s going to run on the Stellar blockchain which means it’s going to be 100% decentralized, which is not the case yet for most exchanges and trading platforms.

Second of all, it will probably adopt XLM as a base currency which will create demand. But even if XLM is not the base coin for the platform, it will earn a lot of attention that will also create demand.

Bakkt

This is one of the most interesting projects in the cryptosphere, and it could go live as early as next week (but don’t quote us on that).

This will be a cryptocurrency exchange created by a partnership between Microsoft, Starbucks, and ICE (which is the New York Stock Exchange’s parent company). You don’t get much bigger names in the world’s capitalist economy.

Bakkt will offer several financial services based in several cryptocurrencies (mainly Bitcoin), but its main aim is to take advantage of digital assets in the real world. In other words: Starbucks wants you to be able to pay for you latté using your bitcoins.

While this is not a development exclusive to Stellar Lumens, as are the others above, it will give the cryptosphere a lot of momentum, credibility, and usefulness, and Stellar will profit from that more than other coins because it already has many proven use cases.

So keep an eye out for Stellar Lumens (XLM) next year (and beyond, of course). You might just be surprised.

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of…

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.  Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.  BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.  The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

Cryptocurrencies are already making a huge difference around the world.  Citizens of Venezuela, a country devastated by rampant inflation, have been using several cryptocurrencies…
