The Recent Global Developments of NEO: What Future Awaits for This Coin and Its Holders




When NEO was first introduced about two years ago, it didn’t have much luck in the competition against the big guns like Bitcoin or Ethereum. The market capitalization of both of these coins adumbrated the advantageous features of this coin. However, when Bitcoin and Ethereum started to exhibit their flaws in the form instability, lack of scalability and in some cases security, investors around the world started to look beyond these two while taking interest in slightly unfamiliar coins at the same time. Right in the beginning of this year, Bitcoin’s price plummeted drastically leading to a massive upheaval in the entire market. NEO, on the other hand, took full advantage of this situation and acquired the trust of a significant number of crypto-traders eventually gaining a formidable position on Coinmarketcap.

NEO is designed to provide a highly scalable network of various decentralized applications (DApps) to traders which is a significant advantage over Bitcoin’s slow transaction process. Also, unlike many other coins, NEO development team posts updates on a monthly basis to make their users conversant with the latest upgrades in the blockchain system. On 6th June of this year, the major NEO developments occurred in May were published. Here, a few of those updates would be discussed along with their probable impact on NEO’s future by the end of this year.

Technical Updates:

As far as the technical updates are concerned, NEO published an updated version of their roadmap where each of the technical developments that are about to occur in the next quarter of this year is unequivocally mentioned. According to this R&D roadmap, the Q3 of this year which would cover the months of July, August, and September, would undergo various upgrades including NeoFS research updates, NEP-8 stack isolation of NeoVM, joint development sprints of NGD and CoZ, NEP-9 URI scheme. The developments during the last quarter of this year would majorly include NEP-10 composite smart contracts along with initial tests of NeoX. This currency is currently on its Q2 phase NeoQS research update in progress.

As far as the decentralization property is concerned, the NEO development team has mentioned completing the API for acquiring nominee data and the frame for nominee application site. These two are likely to be launched and open sourced by the end of this month.

Community Updates and Partnerships in May:

On the 14th of May, NEO engaged in a strategic partnership with Ontology Foundation (ONT), another efficient cryptocurrency that was recently tokenized. Both of these tokens announced a MoU on technology as well as strategy integration. The purpose of the MoU is to allow NEO DApps to create a bridge between the blockchains with and without permission. The obvious results of this partnership would include:

  • Jointly running NeoVM to allow cross-chain invocations and transfer. This way, smart contracts on NEO ecosystem would be able to invoke smart contracts on Ontology and vice versa.
  • Jointly supporting the NeoX protocol and
  • Sharing APIs and SDKs

The NEO global community also went to South America during the previous month in order to extend their reach to more potential investors.

Updates in June:

The monthly report for May was released on the 6th of June. NEO has gone through several notable updates after that as well. Some of them include:

  • Release of Version 1.3.1: NEO Ledger Application version 1.3.1 became available on the Ledger Manager of Switcheo on the 8th of June. As a result, now users would be able to upgrade their ledger app and trade directly from the Ledger Nano S on the Switcheo Exchange. Switcheo also announced the launch of an upgraded version 2 shortly.
  • Partnership with Blockchaingamer: On June 13th, Blockchaingamer became the media partner of NEO blockchain ecosystem. As the online gaming industry is currently at large across the world, this partnership is likely to boost NEO’s popularity among the investors.

Current Scenario of NEO:

NEO currently holds the 11th position on Coinmarketcap with a price nearly equivalent to nearly $40 and a market capitalization of circa $2.6 billion (as of June 14th, 2018). Although the recent price trends do not exhibit any upsurge in price, the updates and partnerships mentioned above are likely to change this trend.

Final Thoughts:

Crypto-traders are well aware of the capricious nature of the market by now. So it is quite impossible to accurately predict a coin’s future. However, new technical developments and partnerships are always likely to create new opportunities and attract new potential investors. According to some speculators, this coin has even the potential to outperform Ethereum by the end of this year. Hence, the recent developments of NEO should make a positive impact on this coin’s future.

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV



Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?




One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…

Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and Ripple On the Rise




The recent development in the cryptocurrency industry is a rise in price for many of the core digital coins. We believe that the unexpected price hike is due to the renewed interest of the key players in the industry. Many investors, speculators, and traders are rushing into the number one cryptocurrency; Bitcoin like never before. Other altcoins such as Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin are not dormant either. The effect of the influx is the soaring prices of the digital coins within seven days.

The price of the crypto leading giant-Bitcoin has increased at 25.74 percent in one week. Ethereum also gained 18.76 percent increase in its price. Litecoin and Ripple also recorded some percentage increase in the tune of 53.20 percent and 16.12 percent respectively. It is no just these few popular coins that have gained in one week. From what we have gathered, 94 digital coins amongst the leading 100 cryptocurrencies are also experiencing the rise in price. This information is according to what TradingView published in April 2019.

According to them also, other cryptocurrencies gained in value while others declined. From their calculations, six digital currencies advanced while ninety-four was on the decline. Also, another information shows that the increase in Bitcoin price has reduced the value of other assets such as bonds and stocks.
