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.

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…
