Stellar (XLM), ranked as the eight-best cryptocurrency in the market seems to be planning on staying there with a great potential of going up judging by the recent performance this currency is having in the market. Besides from gaining more on its visibility as Stellar just got listed on two more exchanges, we are interested in analyzing the further turn of events for this more than seemingly promising digital coin. Let’s see how Stellar has been doing these days as well as what is next for XLM.

Stellar Gets Listed on Two More Exchanges

Each listing counts as a very important move for any currency out there with the simple reason of having the visibility and attainability of the listed coins being consequently increased. Whenever a coin or a token gets listed, its value consequently goes up in the market, which is what every investor and holder is looking forward to. That being said, the more exchanges is one coin listed on, the more chances that coin will have when it comes to being discovered as a potentially good investment.

Although getting listed on two more exchanges in the case of Stellar Lumens doesn’t seem like a big of a deal when you mention the fact that Bitcoin as the oldest currency is listed on over 400 exchanges while Stellar is available on barely 80 exchange markets. Adding two more exchanges to the bunch is actually a huge deal for XLM, which is also noted in its current pace of growth.

One of the exchanges that now accepts Stellar is Coindirect, which is a peer-to-peer exchange market with a platform that allows for the listed coins to be kept safely in wallets with the ability to exchange, sell and buy any of the listed coins in any time. Stellar makes up for one of the seven coins that have been added lately, which joins the number of total 30 currencies that are currently listed on Coindirect.

Stellar can now be bought and sold on Coindirect with the ability to be kept safely in a wallet or exchanged for a local currency that represents a fiat value.

In addition to being listed on Coindirect, XLM has been added to another market exchange, expanding to the Asian market as it got listed on Buybit.

Buybit is a market exchange for cryptocurrencies and digital assets, based in New Delhi. Given the fact that Asia is the biggest crypto market by far, having XLM listed on an Indian exchange will surely affect its liquidity in a positive way. Being listed on Buybit, Stellar can now be directly exchanged for Indian Rupees on this exchange platform.

What Lies in the Future for Stellar?

Stellar was designed and issued with the purpose of making transactions faster and cheaper while connecting banking systems with their clients in order to be able to provide the service of fast, cost-effective and non-fallible with almost no fees applicable during the transaction process.

By far, Stellar has achieved a lot within its roadmap, including their notable partnership with IBM. However, this is in no way the end of the line for XLM as the dev team behind the eight-best currency is working on further plans for the future of Stellar.

One of the most notable potential scenarios for Stellar as based on a recently held Reddit session along with KIN currency is implementing atomic swap into XLM system.

However, one of the members of XLM team has stated that there are no detail plans on implementing atomic swap to the system. However, he further stated that the implementation of atomic swap is to be certainly delayed. On the other hand, he stated that there are plans for implementing some other kind of swap mechanism that will require manual operating as well as escrows provided by third-party representatives.

How is Stellar doing at the Current Moment?

If anything, it seems that Stellar stands for a pretty scalable digital currency given the fact that XLM is recovering from a long market crash at a pretty flattering pace of growth. That being said, XLM is being traded in the green while rising up against the dollar.

With the most recent change of events in the market, Stellar has gone up to 8.41% against the dollar, while trading in the green. In addition to the noted rise against the fiat value, Stellar is also experiencing rises when compared to BTC, notably gaining on its price and going up for 8.52% against Bitcoin.

That being said, XLM can be currently purchased at the price of 0.31$ per one unit, which is still far from dealing at its all-time high of around 0.85$ per one unit that was marked back at the beginning of January 2018.

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,…

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
