Despite its supposed dedication to Ethereum (ETH), dApp browser and wallet Toshi finally decides to open up and accept other cryptos. The good news is that one of the cryptos that the provider decided to include is Litecoin (LTC).

Litecoin joins Toshi

Toshi’s community has been loving the services that this dApp browser and crypto wallet has had to offer so far. However, that never stopped it from requesting that the provider opens up and accepts other cryptos as well.

So far, Toshi has been mostly focused on projects that had some connection to Ethereum (ETH), as well as on Ethereum itself. Now, however, it would seem that Toshi is finally ready to move on, and try out other digital currencies as well.

According to the announcement that Toshi released earlier this week, it will soon start accepting other cryptos. Crypto enthusiasts were delighted to hear this, but what really made everyone excited is the part of the announcement that said that Litecoin (LTC) will be included as well.

Unfortunately, the announcement did not mention a release date for this expansion as of yet. However, the excitement regarding the inclusion of LTC has already started to spread.

Charlie Lee decided to share in LTC supporters’ joy and has tweeted that Coinbase’s Toshi will soon include Litecoin as well.

The announcement, as big and important as it is, has yet to impact LTC’s price, however. The coin’s value has not been the most stable one, and even in the last 24 hours, it witnessed yet another drop of 1.89%. That puts its current value at $133.45 per token. However, many expect that it is only a matter of time before LTC’s new victory impacts the price, and delivers some much-needed stability to the coin.

Lee has tweeted in regard to this as well, trying to reassure the coin’s community. According to him, the price does what it does, and the most important thing is that the coin still manages to hang in there. For now, it demonstrated its ability to adapt. Not to mention the fact that others have shown their willingness to accept it.

LTC will let you fly

Another big development regarding LTC is its soon-to-be adoption by TapJets. The flight service provider decided that it is time to adopt another crypto as a method of payment, and it ran a poll on Twitter in order to determine which one its customers prefer. Litecoin was the clear winner, and the company decided to make their users’ wish come true.

In an interesting twist, Ripple (XRP) also turned out to have a lot of supporters among the firm’s users, which is why TapJets decided to go for this crypto as well. The communication with LTC was established first, and the company announced that Litecoin will become one of the accepted payment methods, starting next month.

Charlie Lee confirmed the new partnership in another tweet.

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…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
