Tezos (XTZ) cryptocurrency has seen a lot of positive activity recently, with Evolve Markets adding it to its trading platform, and Bitfinex going as far as to add trading pairs for XTZ.

Tezos trading comes to Evolve Markets

Evolve Markets is a trading platform for cryptocurrencies, commodities, FOREX, as well as indices. It allows its users to trade numerous crypto assets like Bitcoin, new altcoins, and alike. Even so, it is probably best-known for allowing users to leverage up to 50X, while at the same time, it is boasting full depth-of-market, order book trade matching, as well as BTC and LTC as its base currencies.

Now, the great Tezos news claim that the exchange is also adding this crypto, and it offers 2x leverage, which makes it pretty much the only platform that does it. This addition will be a good thing for Evolve since the platform continues to grow. As for Tezos itself, it wants to become the first self-amending crypto in the world. Its last year’s ICO managed to raise as much as $232 million.

The platform also recently added Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Bitcoin Cash, Monero, EOS, and Dash. Additionally, it is known for its great security measures, like securing deposits in cold storages. It never exposes the private keys to the internet, which significantly reduces the chances of being hacked. Finally, all data is encrypted, which is yet another important security layer that protects the investors’ funds.

Tezos gets trading pairs on Bitfinex

Continuing with good Tezos news, the coin also got on one of the world’s largest exchanges — Bitfinex. The exchange decided to add the coin just a short while after Tezos launched its MainNet. Not only that, but Tezos also got two exchange pairs XTZ/BTC and XTZ/USD.

Despite the fact that this is ultimately a great Tezos news, the coin still lost some of its value due to another price drop. Even the successful launch of its MainNet did not manage to prevent this, as the coin lost $171 million.

Of course, some skeptics claim that the market reacted negatively to the launch of the MainNet. This is a rare occurrence, but it can happen. The only problem with this theory is the fact that Tezos wasn’t the only coin to go down. In fact, the entire market once again suffered big losses. For many, this is confirmation enough that the MainNet was not responsible for the Tezos price drop.

In the end, it would seem that Tezos just has a natural bad luck to make its biggest moves at all the wrong moments. The coin is currently ranked as 16th as per CoinMarketCap, with its value being at $1.52 at the time of writing. Whether Tezos’ luck is going to turn anytime soon is anyone’s guess, but the recent listings are definitely working in its favor.

The crypto market continues to struggle on its way of reaching mass adoption, with most people focusing on Bitcoin. However, Bitcoin still has its fair share of problems, a few of which are quite challenging, with no guarantee that they will ever be fully solved.

While Bitcoin is, and has been the largest cryptocurrency from the moment it was created, there is no guarantee that it will remain at the number one spot forever. While this is mostly what skeptics tend to say, it is still a possibility that cannot be ignored. With that in mind, here are top 3 cryptos that might serve as an alternative to Bitcoin in the future, or maybe even now, considering how high its fees are, and how long its waiting periods tend to be.

1. XRP

XRP has become known as a ‘remittance coin’ due to its goal of providing better, faster, and cheaper international transactions. It was created by a company called Ripple Labs, and so far, it has been one of the best ways for sending money cross-border. It works in combination with Ripple’s products such as xRapid, fueling it and allowing for near-instant transactions at low fees.

The company has decided to offer its products to banks around the world, and most of the financial institutions decided to accept the offer. This is their way of trying to…

The crypto market continues to grow, even though the prices of its many coins were severely damaged during the so-called ‘crypto winter’ of 2018. Even so, the market has grown a lot, and it currently features over 2,100 digital currencies, all parts of their own projects, with a goal of making an impact and entering the mainstream.

Of course, it goes without saying that not a lot of these coins have real potential. Many of them came to be during the ICO craze of 2017 and early 2018 when investors were willing to buy just about any coin. As a result, new startups emerged, each offering its own cryptocurrency. Most of these coins are believed to be bad projects with no future, with only a matter of time before they are declared ‘dead.’

However, there are several coins out there which are worthy of investing in, as well as HODLing on to them. Three such coins that we will focus on today are XRP, Basic Attention Token (BAT), and EOS.

XRP

Let’s start with XRP. This is a coin created by a company called Ripple Labs. As a result, the coin has a strong connection to the company, which many have taken as proof that it is not a real cryptocurrency, that it is centralized, and that it will eventually fade away as a bad project.…

The crypto world is currently facing an uncertain situation as a result of XRP value. Many fans of the digital currency are arguing that the worth should be higher than what it now. A poll taken by Twitter this year showed that 80% of the participants want XRP to be higher than Ethereum. The participant preferred the digital currency to occupy the second largest position against what experts thought. Since XRP has not offered much to improve its reputation, the participant’s reaction was surprising indeed.

From what we have seen so far, one question to ask is, why does the cryptocurrency have many supporters? The simple answer is that Ripple focuses on offering remittance services to its fans more than other digital currency. The company offers many products of which one known as xRapid a cross-border payment service impress many supporters.

Why Fans expect an increase in value

Weiss Ratings did not hide the fact that their agency is not supporting Ripple. However, they admitted that the global payment platforms which the cryptocurrency created are commendable. This commendation proves that Ripple has been impactful in that area of blockchain tech application. Also, the players in the community have seen these achievements as well. Therefore, it is not a surprise that they expect an improvement in the market cap and price of XRP

Many people have raised arguments…
