At the moment of writing, Stellar (XLM) is the 6th largest cryptocurrency of the market with a price per token of $0.22, a market capitalization of $4,303,737,475, and an increase of 4.91% in the last 24 hours.

Without a doubt, Stellar represents one of the top cryptos, and that let us assume that both the strategies and projects that the company deploys are quite good in terms of usability and benefits for the community in general terms.

As a matter of fact, Stellar (XLM) has become one of the preferred platforms when it comes to launching a project in the blockchain, and the same way, it has accomplished to create the most revolutionary projects in order to make 2018 the best year for the crypto.

Let’s see all of the details behind each one of the initiatives that the company has created.

  • IBM payment solution

Stellar has managed to partner with the technology giant IBM, and it was known that both companies are working hand-in-hand in order to improve the payment systems of IBM.

This results particularly exciting considering the fact that IBM has partnered as well with several banks and financial institutions, even including central banks and federal institutions. So just with the existence of the collaboration, many opportunities open up for both crypto and fiat sectors.

  • The Veridium project

Veridium.io is another cryptocurrency project that was created through the alliance between IBM and Stellar, the project was actually born with the intention of reducing the impact of carbon emissions in the atmosphere.

The idea was beyond innovative because the project seeks to incorporate VERDE (the native token) into carbon, gas, and oil trading platforms to automate the whole process of counter-attacking the emissions of carbon in these trades.

  • Stellar X

StellarX.io is a decentralized exchange project that is backed by the Stellar lumens. In fact, this has been one of the main critiques that the project has received so far, considering the fact that the decentralized part would be put into question due to the presence of Stellar as a third party. However, the project has great opportunities, and as it seems, it could launch the value of Stellar (XLM) to unimaginable heights. 

  • Open Garden

OpenGarden.com is a project that focuses mainly on undeveloped countries such as the African region. It offers the opportunity of having free internet through a wifi hotspot for those who don’t have access to the net in their places.

  • TillBilly

TillBilly.com is a project that seeks to integrate a retail outlet into the Stellar network. It is envisioned that besides being cheaper and faster than credit/debit cards, and platforms such as Apple Pay, the platform will also reward those who use it with Stellar lumens.

  • Slice

Slice.Market is a project that seeks to bring the Real Estate business into the crypto world by tokenizing Real-Estate transactions and operations between two people that even may be located in different parts of the world.

  • Sure Remit

SureRemit.co is another project that involves undeveloped regions like Africa. The project seeks to provide a faster and cheaper solution for sending remittances back home from literally any place in the world.

  • SmartLands

SmartLands.io is another project that is seeking to tokenize a specific area of the industry, in this case, agriculture.

Conclusion

Each one of the projects that Stellar (XLM) is deploying or being used in, offers a clear evidence that the token will speed-up its growth in the market very soon. So stay tuned, you may be surprised with the updates of the crypto.

Is there a Real Value to Binance Coin (BNB)?

Binance Coin (BNB) is one of the most interesting cryptocurrencies at the market right now. The coin was developed by the largest crypto exchange by trading volume in the world, and it only works within the exchange’s ecosystem. However, it still managed to achieve what many believed was impossible — it stopped following Bitcoin’s lead, and it started carving its own path.

At the very least, the coin is highly intriguing, but does it hold real value? This is a question that many in the crypto community have been asking for a while now, uncertain whether BNB is a worthy investment or not.

What gives BNB its value?

Binance Coin cannot be used for purchasing goods and services, like Bitcoin. It currently does not fuel a development platform like Ethereum. It cannot even be used as XRP for sending international payments. However, the coin had still managed to triple its price in the last three months and to surge when most other cryptocurrencies were seeing losses due to the last remnants of the crypto winter.

BNB managed to achieve all of this because of its use cases within Binance, but also because of its future potential. First of all, Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world, with millions of customers, most of which use the exchange on a daily basis.

This means that the exchange inspires…

After 2018 crypto winter began, everyone involved with cryptocurrencies experienced quite a difficult period. The prices were down, weak projects started failing, and even the strong ones appeared to be in more trouble than they could face. The year was especially difficult for HODLers, as they expected that the coins’ prices would continue to skyrocket. Instead, they lost a fortune, not even knowing if the prices will ever start returning to their former heights.

These days, things do not seem so bad anymore. The prices are still down, most of the coins are still at their newly-found bottoms, but smaller bull runs are improving the situation, while a massive one still remains somewhere in the future, at least according to optimists.

However, among the coins in the vast and diverse crypto market, one token stands out. Binance Coin is not exactly a typical cryptocurrency, and for many reasons. The biggest one is that it is one of the few tokens out there that does not follow Bitcoin’s lead, at least not anymore. Whether that will change in the future remains to be seen, but for now, BNB appears to be going its own way, carving its own path through the crypto market.

Its price has increased by several hundred percents since the year began, and for now, it continues to grow. As such, it is perhaps more worthy…

Why Binance Could Become The First Centralized Company To Achieve Total Decentralization

At this point, pretty much everyone who knows anything about cryptocurrencies knows that they are based on the concept of decentralization. The same is true for the blockchain technology. While there are some exceptions, such as certain stablecoins, most digital coins follow this principle.

This means that these coins, as well as their network, have no central authority, no single entity that would make choices and decisions that would impact others. However, while most coins managed to achieve this through different complex mechanisms and algorithms — one aspect of crypto trading still remains heavily centralized. We are, of course, talking about crypto exchanges.

Centralization of crypto exchanges

Most of the largest crypto exchanges out there are designed as companies, rather than community-operated platforms. The exchanges have their employees who designed them and developed special tools. They act as customer support, developers, innovators, and alike.

They also get to decide which coins will be listed and which are too weak, uncertain, or not fit to be found on the list. Exchanges are also responsible for keeping the traders’ and investors’ funds safe, which is why they typically develop their own wallets. As such, they are often targeted by hackers, as the coins are stored in an exchange wallet, waiting to be withdrawn, sold, or converted into different currencies.

This makes them extremely unsafe, and investors and traders are always…
