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.

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…

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…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
