Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies have redefined the way payments, and settlements are now exchanging and being transferred throughout the world. Owing to their decentralized nature, virtual currencies including Ripple’s XRP are immune to challenges such as government bureaucracy and inflation to mention a few.

But everyone knows, cryptocurrency is a perfect medium for sending and receiving large sums of money from one part of the world to the other.

In recent time, the cryptocurrency market has been experiencing the emergence and introduction of new applications into the cryptocurrency ecosystem that allows merchants and users to trade, store, and exchange virtual currencies such as BTC and XRP.

Despite the progress that is being made in the cryptocurrency world, many governments and nations are still on the fence when it comes to incorporating and adopting blockchain technology.

However, Thailand seems to be going against the tides as it is eager to embrace the revolutionary technology while other countries such as the US are still trying to figure out the technology and how best they can implement it in their current operations.

Thailand is so much into blockchain technology and cryptocurrency that they are already plotting on how they can come up with their own central bank virtual currency (Ripple’s aim right from the beginning has been to make XRP a base currency for banks, so probably a pair made in heaven?).

Subsequently, Thai regulators have been making substantial progress since 2017; from permitting exchanges and ICOs to conduct their operations in the country to inaugurate a cryptocurrency license company.

The country has also caught the attention of international companies that are impressed by their clear-cut and decisive regulations governing foreign blockchain companies. Thailand is quickly emerging as an example worth emulating across Southeast Asia, and as a country worth the attention of cryptocurrency and blockchain startup founders as it is a fertile ground for the technology.

What is TOK Cryptocurrency Exchange?

TOK is a new cryptocurrency exchange service that generally attends as a wallet to hold virtual currencies as well as a mobile exchange. In addition to this, other attributes of TOK include:

A Multi-Blockchain Asset Supporter

What this says is that TOK is a platform that has the capabilities to serve as a wallet for any listed virtual currency users may decide to store in it. In addition to that, TOK has a trading capability that allows users to directly trade digital assets straight from the account/wallet with minimal security risks and conversion losses.

Mobile Exchange Capabilities

When using TOK, users have the full capabilities to exchange between virtual currencies and fiat currencies by merely using their smartphones and handheld devices. This means that whether users are working or on holiday, they can access their accounts/wallets and make the right deals at any particular time.

Offline Security Functionalities

TOK as an exchange platform is not only convenient, but it also has high-security capabilities that allow users to control how much digital assets they are storing offline. This functionality gives users the surety that their digital assets are safe and secure even when they do not access their digital assets for a long time.

No Trade Fees

Another major attribute of TOK as a platform is that they do not charge extra levy fees for transactions of any kind on their platform.

Thailand Cryptocurrency Exchange, TOK, Listing XRP

As a versatile decentralized chat application developed on Ethereum’s Blockchain, TOK is offering its users with classic attributes of a chat app as well as a user-friendly in-built cryptocurrency wallet.

A couple of days ago, Thailand based crypto exchange, TOK, announced to the world its operations towards listing Ripple’s default cryptocurrency, XRP, onto their platform. Starting November 13, 2018 (till yesterday), users could only deposit and withdraw XRP coinage on the TOK platform. But from today, users can begin trading XRP with BTC pair on the platform.

This move promises to have immense benefits for both entities as Ripple stands to become more popular in Thailand while TOK stands to enter into the league of exchanges trading the popular crypto, XRP.

Can Sharding Fix the Limitations of Blockchain or is the Network Doomed?

Performance and scalability issues have bottlenecked the future development and real-life application of popular mainchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Many methods have been employed to solve this problem, but all of them have their own pros and cons.

The Impossible Trinity – safety, decentralization and scalability, coined by the blockchain world, bars the way to the future and the industry has fought hard to figure out an optimized solution. Sharding, proposed by Ethereum, has been viewed as one such candidate.

What is sharding?

Sharding technology splits a network into smaller partitions called shards, which contain an independent state and transaction history. The idea behind this is to divide a huge amount of workload into smaller pieces to make life easier for every participating node.

If sharding were to be adopted, each node will only need to keep a part of the network’s information, instead of downloading the whole ledger, which can lead to a large data file. Subsets of nodes grouped into one shard will only process transactions specific to that shard. By doing this, the network will be able to process many transactions in parallel, and the performance will continue to increase with more nodes joining in, thus making the network highly scalable.

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

Bitcoin crash

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…
