The good news keeps aggregating for Stellar Lumens and XLM, it’s native token. This week’s adoption is by Coindelta.

Coindelta is a cryptocurrency exchange based in India that offers high usability and the chance to trade in digital assets using the INR, India’s fiat currency, popularly known as Rupee. It supports QTUM, NEO, XRP, Litecoin, EOS, Ethereum, Bitcoin, and starting this Monday (a couple of days ago), Stellar Lumens’ XLM.

It also offers secure wallets for customers to store their tokens and a purportedly lowest withdrawal fee. It includes a section for pro traders that facilitates the exchange of high volumes in minimal times. The exchange promotes itself as “The easiest way to buy, sell and store cryptocurrencies”. The Coindelta platform includes a mobile app (Android and iOS) that allows users to manage their coins from a mobile phone.

Signing up for CoinDelta isn’t that different from most other exchanges. You create an account, verify your identity, make a deposit (in Rupees) and you start trading. One of the advantages in this exchange is that all the currencies it offers can be traded in fiat currency, which obviates the need to buy bitcoins first, as is the case in many of the world’s most important platforms such as Binance.

This Monday, November 26th, the CoinDelta team announced to its community it’s a “delight” for them to list Stellar Lumens XLM. Deposits and withdrawals went online that same day, and trading started at 6:00 pm, Indian Standard Time. The announcement reminded prospective XLM traders the rules of the game:

  • The withdrawal fee for XLM will be 0.01.
  • Minimum deposit for XLM is 1.
  • The number of blockchain confirmations required is 1.
  • Recovery Fee for XLM is 0.2.

The announcement went on by briefly explaining Stellar’s main features and provided a link to the Stellar Development Foundation website for those who wanted to dig deeper about the new option.

The exchange also announced the new coin through a tweet in its official Twitter account which reads:

The new listing is further progress for Stellar Lumens, especially since XRP, its main rival, was already listed in this particular exchange. New listings create interest on the listed projects. More importantly, they increase trading volumes and demand for tokens that ultimately translates into higher value and price.

Also, this shows that Stellar Lumens is looking to make headway into Asia, which has not been an obvious thing. The project has been securing strategic partnerships all year long, but they’ve been mainly with companies and exchanges from the U.S. and Europe.

This is very relevant because many of the most active markets in crypto are in Asia. Not exactly in India, but in China, South Korea, and Japan. But Rome wasn’t built in a day, and Stellar is doing all the right moves to ensure its coin is available all over the planet and it has a presence of some kind in every important market in the world.

As we write this, the Stellar Lumens XLM token is priced at $0.1593 and trading in green numbers (up by 14.32% in the last 24 hours). It’s capitalized at just above 3 billion dollars (fifth place in the rankings) and it’s been threatening to take away Bitcoin Cash’s fourth place. Stellar is only about 300 million dollars away from the feat.

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.

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.

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…
