At first sight, it looks clear that Stellar designed a plan, very carefully, to attract new potential users for 2018 and even further; and the truth is they are successfully making it.

The plan Stellar XLM has made represents a vast range for the future they’re envisioning; one where if you haven’t invested yet in their coin, you should probably need to reconsider it.

Do you want to see what strategies I am talking about? Let’s take a deeper look below:

Stellar takes advantages of Ethereum deficiencies

Even though the popularity of Ethereum has significantly grown, some of their primary processes are still misfiring, letting the coin stay with some vulnerabilities that somehow Stellar may efficiently resolve.

The major attribute that has created traction for Ethereum has been the smart contract concept; and according to different reports, at least 34,000 out of 1 million contracts downloaded were deficient.

It is like this that Stellar appears on the frame since the ICO of Ethereum seems to be needing a base transfer to a safer platform. And on the other hand, Stellar has one of the most reputed platforms at the moment, with the characteristic of the mega signature on the execution of a smart contract, a must in a 100% foolproof system.

Stellar plans to defeat Ripple in their own ground

The similarities in these two platforms are remarkable, on the one hand, they both offer the same service, cross-border currency transfer, and banking. On the other, both supply their users with a gateway to connect them with their respective Blockchain.

In short, both are fighting for the same user target, and at the end, only one will be the winner; a title XLM plans to obtain by using xRapid, xVia and xCurrent.

Stellar organizes win-win alliances in order to excel their service

Alliances are crucial for cryptocurrencies, and Stellar is in fact, taking advantage of it. The first partnership was with IBM and Deloitte, a delightful common work that allowed the users to be more confident while putting on a bet. Consequently, the American technology company, Stripe, endorsed XLM and decided to support the project widely.

At the same time, in May, Stellar will launch “Stellarport”, an exchange platform that will allow users to access new ICO coins in a real-time matter. It is expected from this, that Stellar may put to function on the platform the technology FairX from IBM, which will make trading transactions way faster.

New Technology deployed on the Stellar network

Stellar XLM is thinking of using Lighting network, a technology that will allow them to be able to manage a massive number of users without compromising the quality of transactions.

It seems like Stellar plans to learn from other’s mistakes, like the case of Bitcoin, that definitely was not prepared for the humongous amount of clients they received. Unlike them, Stellar, knowing that is right on track of making alliances to increase their users base, want to improve already the platform the clients would have to handle.

Stellar applying for a more global market

Stellar plans to expand on a global level, but in this case, they’re thinking of diving into markets unexplored someway. That is the case of the African market, one the most untouched financial environments in the world.

The strategy is to engage with all of the increasing technological population in the region, and all the people who live in the urban zones.

As a result, the company expects to fight firmly with other platforms such as MoneyGram, Western Union, and even the local M-pesa.

Summing up, all of the strategies Stellar is working on, tend to make the lives of the users more straightforward and favorable; and that’s something definitely people are likely to embrace, so as a consequence what we can predict for the future of Stellar XLM, is an incredible success.

DGB Price Prediction For 2018 and Beyond

DGB price prediction
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

With the crypto market being constantly bearish throughout this year, a lot of investors are having second thoughts about buying additional coins. While some large cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum can be considered safe investments, smaller coins like Digibyte (DGB) often receive a lot of doubt. This is why the DGB price prediction is necessary so that the investors can know what to expect.

DGB Price Prediction

DGB has had its ups and downs throughout this year, and at some point, it even went up by 70%. However, the constant bear market affected it just as much as numerous other cryptos. This has brought its value down to its current $0.025378 per coin. Some optimistic predictions from earlier dates saw the coin reaching as high a price as $9.20 by the year’s end. However, as we approach the date, it seems less and less likely that this DGB price prediction will come true.

The coin is generally seen as a profitable investment. As it is always the case with cryptocurrencies, they should be bought when their prices are down, so that a profit could be made when they spike up once more. Digibyte is no different, but it should be noted that investing in this coin means having patience. DGB is not among the coins that will make you rich overnight, and instead, it should be seen as a long-term investment.

Even though 2018 has been as…

Why ZCash (ZEC) Is Heading to $10k

Back in mid-May, the Winklevoss Twins made the headlines for embracing ZCash (ZEC) as one of its major digital assets on their groundbreaking Gemini exchange. When the announcement was made, ZEC rallied in the market by showing a 45% increment in value. The coin made it to $357 in a matter of hours.

Further assessing the currently available digital assets on the Gemini platform, we find that the exchange currently has USD pairings for only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum and ZEC. There is also additional pairings of ETH/BTC, ZEC/BTC and ZEC/ETH with plans to onboard Litecoin in the coming days.

Another thing to note is that the exchange also provides custodial services for institutional investors thus giving ZEC the much-needed exposure to the firms on Wall Street. Custodial services provide a guarantee that all digital assets on the platform are stored by a licensed entity thus extinguishing any cybersecurity concerns. For an entity to be licensed in New York for custodial services, the proper due diligence and research have been done.

Another thing that makes the Gemini exchange attractive and appealing to institutional investors, is that all USD deposits are insured by the FDIC. The latter entity is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation that provides insurance for USD deposits in American banks. This means that once again, the funds of individual and institutional investors are safe and insured, further making…

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?

Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…
