Stellar Lumens (XLM) price spikes amid Coindelta listing

Published

on

Stellar

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.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”

Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
