Despite the fact that that crypto enthusiasts and investors have been keeping tabs on the cryptomarket, their interest might be dwindling owing to the turbulence in the market. The ups and downs have become a common trend in the cryptomarket which is why crypto-enthusiasts oscillate between being optimistic and being hesitant. Coinranking has reported that after weeks of slump being observed in the crypto market, March 31st paved the way for a positive trend in the market. This brought hope among investors that the situation in the crypto market was heading towards a positive and stable direction. As per the data from Coinranking, after reaching the most bottom position, the top ten altcoins have started seeing a reversing trend. Stellar is a cryptocurrency that is expected to perform very well in 2018.

According to the official website of Stellar, it is a decentralized network that is capable of connecting payment procedures, banking systems, and customers. The integration is done in a way that would enable the digital transaction of money in a swifter and more reliable way as well as ensure negligible transaction costs. Founded in 2014, the development team behind Stellar is focused on eradicating poverty and maximizing potential of every individual. The blockchain technology which comes at a very low cost makes use of its currency called lumens for various charitable causes. Stellar also plans to give away 95% of the total stock of its currency.

Stellar’s roadmap for 2018:

Stellar has set its focus on the following agenda for the year 2018.

Mission 1: SDEX: The Stellar decentralized exchange

By the end of the year 2017, a team of experienced experts was recruited to design a front-end for Stellar’s intrinsic decentralized exchange. The project is called SDEX and internal prototypes are under construction. SDEX will be the state-of-the-art front-end that will result in a product of the fundamental technology. SDEX will aid protocol-level, on-chain transactions for any Stellar coin and the application will create liquidity to broaden the choice of assets and reduce the spreads. Some specific features of SDEX are the following:

  • First day trading for any Stellar ICO token
  • Minute pathfinding to come across the least expensive rates between any two assets
  • Very low transaction fees
  • The end-user authority of secret keys

In order to make sure that SDEX can successfully keep up in competition with other significant exchanges, the team behind Stellar plans to elevate the number of market-makers and anchors on Stellar’s network. The exchange will be used to stimulate the team’s vision of dealing with more real-world assets on the blockchain network of Stellar. More and more ICOs are coming to Stellar because of its low transaction rates, high transaction speeds, and scalability. Stellar’s team is committed to incorporating a large range of financial tools on the network. SDEX will be the first of a kind exchange for all Stellar tokens and the team envisions a future where several virtual assets, oil futures and carbon credits will be transacted together at cheap and quick rates.

Secondary product goal: Better support for ecosystem

The productivity of the platforms depends largely on the usefulness of the tools designed and being used in it. Stellar needs a team of a knowledgeable and expert community of application developers and investors in order to emerge as an international financial protocol. In respect to this, some of the goals of Stellar for 2018 are the following:

  • Improved brand marketing
  • Implementation of more walk-throughs to enable people to trade conveniently
  • Higher quality of technical certification including release notes
  • Persistent upgradation of horizon API and surrounding SDKs

The team of Stellar plans to keep on awarding lumens via the Stellar Build Challenge to individuals and business organizations that make contributions to the ecosystem of Stellar.

Mission 2: Integration of Lightning Network

One of the strongest points of the Stellar story is the innovation of technology. The team has taken note of the market-generated demand for more privately-enabled transactions on the Stellar network. Hence, the integration of the lightning network is an agenda for 2018. The lightning network will have a significant beneficial impact on Stellar’s long-term security and scalability. There has been awareness regarding lightning’s capability for improving Stellar’s potential for a long time. Its optimized implementation is on the cards for Stellar in 2018.

Other Goals:

The following are the tech objectives associated with this mission:

  • Hardening: While upgradations are implemented improving the performance of Stellar, it is crucial to ensure that the blockchain network remains robust and secure. Hence the team plans to reduce the surface of attack at the protocol level by integrating invariant support (the checks will be consistently conducted by the validator).These checks will alleviate the effect of bugs on the ledger state.
  • Decentralisation: The team behind Stellar is focused on easing the process of running a full validator. In order to ensure the maximum decentralization of the Stellar network, the overhead of running nodes must be maintained at a minimum level. By rendering the nodes steadfast and self-supporting, the node operators can invest their time into other activities. The future plan is to make enhancements which would enable the supervision of the health of Stellar’s blockchain network and the way data is transacted through nodes. For this, some statistical data of peer-to-peer code will be reviewed by the team.

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,…
