The cryptocurrency space has been going through violent volatility since the beginning of the year. The bearish trend has become almost common placed such that it has become old news to hear of Bitcoin crashing. However, temperatures have escalated in the recent past especially with news of Trumps’ move to abandon the Iran Nuclear deal. This has not only affected the cryptocurrency market but has also led to a slow down in the stocks market as well while Wall Street cut loses.

In fact, CNN reports that last week Bitcoin’s price took a nosedive after Warren Buffett renewed criticism about Bitcoin where he called it “Rat Poison”. Famously known to be the oracle of Oklahoma, Buffett has for a long time been a Bitcoin bear criticizing cryptocurrencies for their lack of value mentioning that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies “will come to a bad ending”.

However, Bitcoin and the overall crypto market have managed to disapprove the predictions of Buffet as well as other bears in the financial world. In 2014, back when Bitcoin was at a paltry $600, Buffet predicted that Bitcoin was only a mirage and yet almost 4 years later the cryptocurrency market has grown stronger despite the violent volatility.

In fact, a number of coins have been thriving while showing signs of serious takeoff. One of these coins is Stellar Lumens (XLM).

How XLM stellar Lumens is set to moon

The last weekend alone has seen the decline of a variety of altcoins. At the tail end of last month, the XLM coin managed to trade at prices as high as $0.45 then only to go back down slightly and settle at the $0.31 in early May. Currently, the coin has once again managed to go green with a gain that has seen its price approach the $0.40 region. Currently, the coin is priced at $0.37 according to coin market cap.

Stellar’s Recent Developments

Stellar has been receiving a lot of recognition from cryptocurrency investors as well as long-term crypto enthusiasts and for a good reason. The listing of XLM stellar lumens on OKEx (a top-level Hong Kong-based digital currency exchange platform) must have been among the reasons for all the attention that the Stellar Lumen is getting.

In addition, Stellar has managed impressive partnerships such as the one with IBM. The partnership between XLM and IBM will see to the development of a cross-border transfer platform that will host 7 unique currencies ranging from New Zeeland’s Dollar to the South Pacific and even the Australian Dollar. Another contributor to Stellar’s uptrend is the Pundi X point of sale platform. Though still in its infant stages of development, the Pundi X point of sale platform is also another reason explaining Stellar’s popularity.

Stellar is quickly becoming a major player in the crypto space such that the KIN foundation has recently announced a move to fork its Blockchain. The move is set to take the best of Ethereum’s smart contracts while combining the scalability of Stellar’s Blockchain to achieve a new network for KIN. With this development, Stellar’s reputation will be at an all-time high as the Blockchain of scalability.

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.

In the past few…

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,…
