Comparing Stratis (STRAT) with Ethereum (ETH) may seem stupid to many considering the current position of STRAT is 39 and that of ETH is 2. (coinmarketcap.com, as of 2nd May 2018). But, check out the progress of both the crypto coins. The price of Stratis (STRAT) at the time of writing shows approximately $7.55 USD (13.37%) while Ethereum (ETH) displays $679.99 USD (1.71%). Compared to ETH, STRAT had a rise of 13.37%.
A Little on Stratis (STRAT)
The Stratis blockchain is basically aimed at easing up the process of developing, testing and installing C# blockchain applications on the.Net framework. The blockchain-as-a-service platform of Stratis enables various businesses to apply blockchain technology on several use cases across industries. The aim of the Stratis platform is to develop as a one-stop solution for everything related to the blockchain. It is quite similar to Bitcoin when seen from the core code perspective but STRAT has many advanced features. Instead of C++, Stratis uses C# language.
Stratis blockchain will be able to prevent publication and research disputes in the field of medical science by offering a secure record system. The reviewer, researcher, and publisher can access information but cannot tamper the legitimacy of the record. With the Stratis platform, the supply chain, transportation, and inventory will be incorporated and they will be updated in real time by the internet consensus. In the Fintech sector, Stratis will work to solve issues like identity theft, identity management, and Escrows trust issues. Stratis had developed an identity verification app that will help the companies to verify the background and identity of a potential employee or a potential partner. The methodology can also be applied to services that require KYC compliances.
Stratis (STRAT) or Ethereum (ETH)
Like the Ethereum blockchain, the platform of Stratis can support smart contracts and decentralized apps or dApps. Ethereum was developed using the first Turing complete programming language for blockchain and it is the first decentralized platform to offer smart contracts and dApp. Stratis, on the other hand, is a BaaS or blockchain-as-a-service platform that was created keeping in mind the issues of financial sector corporations. Stratis claims to be the first to offer private blockchains or sidechains to the users along with dApps and smart contracts. Being introduced in the cryptocurrency market on 12th August 2016, it can be said that the developers had the opportunity to study the shortcomings of the Ethereum blockchain and design accordingly.
Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) has been utilized by the Ethereum blockchain to run blockchain based dApps. They are, in turn, executed using network nodes that record the same information for the same dApps with minimal downtime, high fault tolerance, and permanence. Ethereum smart contracts have been used by many developers to create and launch their own tokens. Most popular ERC20 tokens include EOS and Tron. Tron by launching its own mainnet will most likely move away from the Ethereum platform. The smart contracts of Stratis are tested, audited and can only then be approved for business use and the blockchains offered can be customized by the users. The sidechains or private blockchains can be developed and executed by organizations, according to their requirements, that are outside the main blockchain. However, they are secured by the main blockchain. The white paper of Stratis claims that setting up a sidechain can take as little as 10 minutes. Stratis, according to its white paper, will be keeping fiat gateways that will enable smooth transmission of fiat currencies like GBP and USD from point to point.
Ethereum is still stuck at 8 to 25 transactions per second while Stratis implements more advanced technology to execute nearly 20,000 transaction requests per second. However, the Ethereum team is planning on implementing sharding technology that is expected to increase the number of transactions per second by at least 1,000. Sharding is basically the technique to divide a blockchain network into several groups or shards to enhance the network speed and scalability.
In early April of 2018, Abra had announced that it will list 7 more altcoins on their list. Stratis (STRAT), Stellar (XLM), Bitcoin Gold (BTG) are some of the newly listed crypto coins here. Previously, BTC, BCH, ETH, ETC, XRP, LTC, DOGE, GNT, OMG, VTC, and ZEC were the only cryptocurrencies that Abra (digital wallet app) users could buy, sell and hold. The USP of Stratis (STRAT) is sidechains and the fact that it is based on C# language. The market volume of STRAT at the time of writing shows approximately $746,634,436 USD (from coinmarketcap.com). Considering, the comeback of the crypto coin from the bearish trend in the first quarter, it is probably a good time to invest in STRAT.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
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.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
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…
