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.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.

What is Libra?

Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.

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…
