Stellar (XLM) Gets Listed on Two More Exchanges




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.

Understanding the Uses of Different Types Of Cryptocurrencies




Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.


The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps



gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
