The future of any cryptocurrency is as uncertain and subjected to change as is its price on the current market. However, this is not good enough for investors, since they need to be able to estimate whether or not the coin is worthy of investing.
Cardano (ADA) is one of the coins that has received a lot of attention this year. It made a lot of progress despite the constantly bearish 2018. Of course, its price is still pretty low compared to other crypto world champions. However, it probably won’t remain so low forever. So, what is there in the future of Cardano?
A bit about Cardano (ADA)
Similarly to Ethereum, Cardano is a platform that specializes in decentralized apps and smart contracts. Its native crypto is ADA, a coin valued at $0.077132, according to CoinMarketCap, which is currently holding the 9th place on CMC’s list.
Despite the fact that it is trying to do the same, or at the very least similar, thing as Ethereum, the two differ quite a bit, upon closer inspection. Cardano is a much younger coin, with its technology being massively improved. Cardano, like many other coins, aims to be the leader of the third generation of the blockchain.
The coin was developed by Charles Hoskinson, who came up with a concept for ADA back in 2015. However, the coin was only launched in 2017. In the meantime, Hoskinson dedicated himself to creating a professional team, perfecting the coin’s concept and technology, and alike. Cardano’s way was always slower, but that was fine, as long as the coin did what it aimed to do properly.
The future of Cardano
Cardano is a coin with a lot of goals, some of which may seem a bit too ambitious at first glance. It aims to unite everyone under one blockchain, and even make it the first $1 trillion economy, according to Hoskinson’s statement a few months back.
Additionally, Cardano’s leaders have been intrigued by how bad the situation in Africa is. Their goal is to use the blockchain technology and help African countries become more organized, cheaper, and more stable than current systems. While these plans were explored in depth back in February, Cardano Foundation’s Twitter page has recently reminded the community of these plans.
There is tremendous potential for blockchain technology to solve issues in the developing world. Read the latest on Cardano's vision for Africa on the Cardano Forum: https://t.co/IYRPufr6r8

This, of course, means that ADA is not scraping their goal to help developing countries in Africa. Only that doing so will require a lot of time, effort, and patience. However, if successful, this will make the future of Cardano quite bright in Africa. Not a lot of coins is planning on conquering African crypto market, and certainly not a lot of those that are as capable and well thought-out as Cardano is.
If Cardano manages to establish itself in Africa, this will be a game-changing move, for the coin, as well as the involved countries. Of course, the company’s goal is to help, but the consequences of its expansion cannot be overlooked. In the meanwhile, Cardano continues to struggle in the once again bearish market, like the rest of digital coins.
Despite the current environment, Cardano still remains one of the most balanced coins, with the smallest price oscillations. In the meanwhile, Cardano continues its own development, with constantly bringing up new updates. These updates continue to fix even the smallest issues, making Cardano one of the best coins around.
Finally, according to Hoskinson’s recent video, Cardano’s TestNet 1.4 is also coming soon, with its release being scheduled for October of this year. In the same video, Hoskinson also claims that the team has made a lot of progress with Icarus as well and that they are quite happy with the results.
Obviously, the future of Cardano seems bright enough, even though it might require a lot of work and effort. Cardano continues to develop and advance and has become a pretty safe investment at this point.

Lite.IM Dethrones Facebook After Integrating Crypto Wallet With Popular Messaging Platforms
With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading. Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term. In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook. That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Zulu Republic Develops Lite.IM
Zulu Republic is an ecosystem of blockchain tools and platforms, designed as a place where people, businesses, and organizations can thrive on their own terms. And indeed, Zulu Republic has hit a grand slam with their development of Lite.IM.
Lite.IM is a crypto wallet that has been integrated with several of the most popular messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Telegram. In addition, users in the U.S. and Canada can also exchange and manage crypto balances through SMS. Although not all cryptocurrencies are available, the team has selected four of the most popular currencies which include Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), and the native currency of Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Telegram and Facebook Messenger are extremely popular platforms. But, potentially even more exciting news, is that the Lite.IM team plan to announce WhatsApp integration in the next 1-2 weeks. There is a reason why Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014, for…
Will 2019 be the Year of TRON (TRX)?
While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.
Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.
TRON in 2018
2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.
The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.
The project was quickly…
