NEO has been aiming a position under the top-5 best performers in the crypto world, aka crypto giants for a long time. Things got extremely interesting when NEO team declared that they’ll be launching NEO’s first decentralized exchange. This announcement caused a frenzy among the crypto enthusiast and it’s evident by the amount raised ($8.5 Million) in the ICO for Switcheo which was way more than their anticipated hard cap of public presale ($1.2 Million). The idea behind Switcheo, a cryptocurrency trading platform which primarily trades NEP-5 tokens is to expand usage, adoption and trading positions for all NEP-5 token.

About Switcheo Network

Switcheo was created for a better user experience and it’ll be remain functioning as true decentralized exchange and support trading of NEP-5 tokens and NEO systems assets like GAS and NEO. It can be used by people who would want to offset their tokens after ICO is launched. The smart contract was developed using C# while the Web App is Javascript ES6 based. SWH is the native token and will be used for cross-chain trades on the DEX platform. Fees from the exchange will be distributed to SWH holders at the beginning when the staking process starts. Their whitepaper makes it clear that the exchange will not be accepting fiat currencies at first and will continue to function as a multi-chain DEX platform.

Switcheo Exchange Launches on Mainnet

It was a bold move by NEO to create a DEX platform powered by NEO blockchain which allows trades for NEP-5 tokens whereas other major exchanges (like cobinhood, etherdelta) allow their users ERC-20. On 20th April the Switcheo network announced being listed as an exchange on CoinMarketCap. Switcheo is one of the first batch projects that emerged as a result of the First city of Zion dApp competition back in the previous year’s September. The news sparked positivity throughout NEO community and with the newly formed partnerships with some of the most famous projects such as EFFECT.AI, Bridge protocol, TheKey, RedPulse, DeepBrainChain and Trinity Protocol. the day when Switcheo went online on the Mainnet on March 31st NEO’s price point swayed at $50. After the Mainnet launch and till 14th April, the trading fee on Switcheo was diminished to 0.01%.

Partnership with Effect.AI

On 23rd March, the CEO of Switcheo announced a partnership with EFFECT.AI. which is a decentralized network for artificial intelligence development and all services related to AI built on the NEO blockchain. The team behind EFFECT.AI is developing a decentralized network whose main objective is to build a platform that will stimulate AI development and the creation of AI services of various kinds. This partnership could open AI based reformations and guarantee a smart yet user-friendly experience for traders. According to Switcheo’s CEO, they’re working on the world’s best multi-chain DEX on NEO blockchain. Switcheo has made similar partnerships with Bridge protocol and other well-known blockchain projects.

Success in the first week of launch:

Switcheo has already given a record-shattering performance through its ICO and Mainnet launch. At the end of March, NEO declared that Switcheo is to be launched on the Mainnet. According to Switcheo’s monthly development report, the platform has amassed success since the first week of operation. The team has reported reaching the trading volume of $2 Million within just a few days of functioning. Which means that Switcheo has risen as the fourth largest DEX following DEX giants such as Cobinhood (3rd), Idea (2nd) and Ethfinex (1st). At present, there are only NEP-5 tokens available for trading and there are 24 different trading pairs available on the DEX even though some of them have low trading volume. Following is the list coins being traded on Switcheo network.

  • Switcheo
  • NEO
  • GAS
  • DeepBrainChain
  • Qlink
  • TheKey
  • RedPulse
  • Apex
  • Ontology
  • Trinity Network Credit

Status of NEO and Switcheo’s Next Goal:

At the time of writing, NEO is still ranked as 10th largest cryptocurrency of the world with a market capitalization of $5 billion USD. Around $120 million USD worth of NEO exchanges hands within every 24 hours while its price stays at $74 USD rising at the rate of 8.85%. According to Switcheo’s whitepaper, their next step is to add support for QRC-20 tokens on the DEX platform. For this, the company will implement QTUM blockchain and get closer to their ultimate goal for this year which is the launch of ERC-20 tokens on its platform.

Conclusion:

Although Switcheo is making record after record as a successful decentralized exchange platform based on NEO, the path is still a long way to go for NEO to reach the top-5. It is possible if bitcoin makes a gradual comeback and break the chains of $8.5K USD. In the upcoming bulls outbreak, more investors and traders are going to buy NEO due to its continuous positive trend.

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.

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…

Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
