Tezos News: Is XTZ Next For Coinbase?

Published

Tezos news

Following recent Tezos news that said that the XTZ might be a new addition to Coinbase, the coin experienced a new price surge. While the new development is still only a rumor, it will be a significant move for Tezos if this actually happens.

Tezos’ troubled past

Ever since its ICO, Tezos has struggled with its development, as well as bare survival in the crypto market. Numerous issues arose one after another, and problems even included management issues. Eventually, the project that was supposed to be launched in prosperous 2017, arrived during the bearish market of 2018.

Even so, Tezos had to deal with a lot more than just bear market. Constant delays and the lack of a firm schedule left the community confused and in doubt. Eventually, a change in leadership arrived in February 2018, and the project was finally back on track. Despite this, it still took months to come up with its beta network, and even longer for the MainNet to be launched.

Another issue arose when exchanges proved to be unwilling to enlist XTZ. This issue mostly centered around HitBTC, which started trading Tezos IOUs last year. However, they were still not prepared to go live and allow Tezos withdrawals and deposits by the time the MainNet was launched. Even now, Tezos withdrawals are disabled, although deposits are currently possible.

Additionally, while Bitfinex decided to list Tezo on September 17, XTZ still remains unavailable in the US, while its deposits are limited to amounts larger than $10,000.

Coinbase CEO hints at Tezos being added to the platform

Considering all of this, it is immediately clear why Tezos news of potentially getting listed on Coinbase is a big deal for this coin. The rumor likely started due to Brian Armstrong, Coinbase’s CEO. Armstrong has recently hinted that the exchange might soon add Tezos to its platform in a tweet about “sugar-free substitutes” that can get “baked” into chocolates and cookies.

While this may seem cryptic and confusing to most people, the Tezos community took it as a hint of Armstrong being interested in XTZ. This is due to the fact that “baking” is one of Tezos’ essential parts. Simply put, it is a process on Tezos, that is used for signing and appending new transaction blocks on its network.

Obviously, this is only a small hint, which can be interpreted in many different ways. However, even this was enough to spark a new price surge for the coin, and raise its value. At the time of writing, the excitement regarding this Tezos news seems to have passed, and the coin is currently trading in the red, with its current price being at $1.37.

However, investors remain optimistic, with many of them predicting the start of an entire bull run if rumors turn out to be true. If a mere hint was enough to start a price surge, the actual act will certainly have a much larger impact.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social

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.

Mission Statement

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, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
