In this day and age, where there are so many cryptos, and the new ones are popping up almost every other day, it can be quite difficult to decide which ones are worth investing into. A lot of them seem like they are a pretty good deal, and have a lot of potentials, only to prove too unstable and crash way to easily the first time the market goes through another crisis. This is why it is important to find a crypto worth investing in, and many believe that EOS is a perfect choice.

What is EOS?

It was created by Dan Larimer and Block.one. Its main goal is to solve issues regarding scalability, speed, and to improve the user experience by eliminating transaction fees, providing account recovery, and alike. This is achieved through the use of Delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism.

All in all, EOS is a very good investment opportunity, and there are many reasons why that is.

Why should you invest in EOS?

The first thing that you need to consider when choosing a crypto to invest in is who is behind it. A lot of cryptos have a seemingly good quality to their name, but they crash and burn because of the team that cannot handle it properly. This is not the case with EOS, since both its creator, as well as the team behind it are professionals with a lot of successful projects backing this claim up.

Not only that, but EOS even managed to attract the attention of a few billionaires, Eric Schmidt and Mike Novogratz. For a lot of people, this is more than enough proof that EOS has real potential since you don’t become a billionaire by making bad business decisions.

The next thing to have in mind is EOS’ design, which was imagined with scalability in mind. This is an issue with a lot of blockchains that were taken by surprise when mass adoption of 2018 started since they simply couldn’t scale and deal with it. Not that they won’t, eventually, but they cannot do it right now. In EOS’ case, however, scalability is something that is actually prioritized, which allows it to target apps that require decentralization but wouldn’t affect performance, like Twitter, for example.

Scalability is a large and complex issue that cannot be solved with one update, and it has a nasty way to go around any attempt to solve it, and just come back. It is safe to say that it will remain an issue for a fair number of years ahead of us, but the internet itself used to have the same problem, and it got solved after a while.

Another thing that makes EOS worthy of consideration is its competitor’s current state. Ethereum (ETH) posted a pretty big goal for itself, which was to become a decentralized world computer. Somewhere along the way, it realized that this will require a lot of time and work, which made it postpone its plans.

The developers have two options – they can wait and keep postponing their dApps for years, or they can migrate to a different blockchain that is better equipped to handle scalability. If they decide to go for blockchain migration, this will put EOS in the position of power and will allow it to take advantage of ETH’s projects.

Not to mention that EOS managed to raise around $2 billion via a year-long ICO, which can allow it to dump ETH on the open market, and therefore damage ETH’s value a lot.

EOS doesn’t have to worry about funding

Running a successful blockchain is not cheap, and the team needs constant funds in order to continue the blockchain’s development. A lot of cryptos rely on mining fees and inflation in order to fund their development, but EOS only relies on inflation. Its annual inflation is 5%, which it uses to pay block producers, and all that remains is used for whatever the token holders vote for.

Additionally, the Block.one team invested a lot into funds reserved for their ecosystem. They decided to make sure that they will always have active projects with a lot of potential and support.

And, let us remember that EOS is just about to launch its main net, which proved to be pretty good during the testnet’s experiments.

Finally, holding EOS tokens allows for using the resources of its shared network. This means that you will have access to storage, bandwidth, and alike, and all you need to do is invest in this crypto. It is just like owning a digital real estate, where the amount of tokens provides a percentage of space that is at your disposal.

So far, it is to early to see what will happen with EOS in the future and whether it will manage to live up to its plans and promises. What can be said, even at this point, is that it has a lot of potentials, a good team, a successful leader who knows what he is doing, and a plan to become great. With all of this in mind, it is easy to see why EOS is a pretty safe investment at this point.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.  Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.  BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.  The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
