Stellar News: XLM To Dominate Cross-Border Payments

Cryptocurrency experts from all corners of the world agree that right now is the best time to buy Stellar (XLM). While the latest market behavior was far from perfect, and prices of many coins have dropped, cryptos like Stellar are extremely undervalued at this point.

At the time of writing, top cryptos are trading in the green, which might mean that the situation is getting better. Stellar’s current price is at $0.226430, with 2% increase in the last 24 hours. Despite the fact that this is far from a real bull run, analysts agree that the real price surge is bound to arrive sooner or later.

Recent Stellar news claims that this XLM price does not match its fundamentals, which places Stellar in a perfect position for growth. This is due to its nature, as well as the ultimate purpose for which the coin was designed.

What makes Stellar special?

Just like Ripple (XRP), Stellar also aims to revolutionize cross-border payments, and make them faster, cheaper, more efficient, and possible at any time of day or night. The largest difference between the two is that Ripple is focusing on providing its services to banks and other financial institutions, while Stellar aims to deliver the same to individuals.

In addition, Stellar has partnered up with IBM a while back, and IBM offers its own services to around 97% of the global banking system. In short, by partnering with IBM, Stellar also has a unique opportunity to get access to other IBM’s partners as well. Not only that, but IBM’s international payments solution allows these banks to settle any payment in fiat currencies, and not only Stellar.

This is a very big deal for banks since most of them are not ready to start working with cryptocurrencies, either due to laws in different countries or because of their own policies. Because of that, banks are more likely to go for those solutions that do not force them to deal with cryptocurrencies.

Recent Stellar news also claims that Interstellar is making game-changing moves, that are expected to make this coin’s blockchain even more interesting and attractive to banks and financial institutions. Some reports mention payment channels that plan to introduce new features, such as interoperability, privacy, and scalability. Privacy has always been an important issue when it comes to finances, which is another very important advantage for Stellar.

Scalability and interoperability are also very important. In the finance industry, thousands upon thousands of transactions are made every second, and Stellar’s system is making big steps to always be able to instantly satisfy the industry’s needs.

All of this points out to a massive use case for Stellar, which likely means that this is a coin that will never go away. As such, it can only grow as time progresses. For this reason, investors believe that buying the coin while it is cheap might bring them significant gains in the future.

The finance industry is a market with a worth of trillions of dollars. The coin that dominates this market will be the largest one in the world, and XLM stands more than a good chance to be that coin.

With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading.  Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term.  In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook.  That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).

Zulu Republic Develops Lite.IM

Zulu Republic is an ecosystem of blockchain tools and platforms, designed as a place where people, businesses, and organizations can thrive on their own terms.  And indeed, Zulu Republic has hit a grand slam with their development of Lite.IM.

Lite.IM is a crypto wallet that has been integrated with several of the most popular messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Telegram.  In addition, users in the U.S. and Canada can also exchange and manage crypto balances through SMS.  Although not all cryptocurrencies are available, the team has selected four of the most popular currencies which include Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), and the native currency of Zulu Republic (ZTX).

Telegram and Facebook Messenger are extremely popular platforms.  But, potentially even more exciting news, is that the Lite.IM team plan to announce WhatsApp integration in the next 1-2 weeks.  There is a reason why Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014, for…

Tron (TRX)

While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.

Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.

TRON in 2018

2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.

The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.

The project was quickly…
