Trezor Prepares to Add Support for Cardano (ADA)

Published

Cardano

IOHK, the technology and engineering company based in Hong Kong, has recently confirmed that a well-known hardware wallet called Trezor will soon add support for Cardano (ADA).

Cardano to get Trezor support before November

IOHK’s Charles Hoskinson, who is also the founder of ADA cryptocurrency, personally tweeted this announcement while drawing attention to Trezor’s roadmap.

According to Hoskinson, support for Cardano on Trezor wallets should arrive before November, which leaves only two more days. Trezor, which is a hardware wallet used by cryptocurrency holders around the world, is currently undergoing preparations for adding not only ADA but several other coins as well. These include currencies like Monero, Ripple, ZCash, Zencash, as well as Stellar.

This represents a big move for Cardano, as its coin will now receive a massive security boost. Trezor’s hard wallets will allow users to have a new cold storage for Cardano, and increase the coin’s security. Due to their nature, hardware wallets are impossible to hack from afar, and any potential invader would have to gain physical access to the device in order to steal digital assets from it.

The support for Cardano was announced shortly after ADA got listed on platforms like eToro and OKEx. Receiving such important listings in a brief amount of time is one of the signs that exchanges and wallets believe that this coin has potential. As such, Cardano is expected to attract even more attention before the year ends.

This is not all that awaits Cardano

While Cardano is still relatively young coin, it became known as a currency that likes to take its time. However, it is also a coin that likes to think big. Apart from new listings and Trezor support, Cardano is set to receive a new update called Shelley.

Shelley was announced in late August of this year, and it is supposed to make Cardano fully decentralized and autonomous system. It will implement Ouroboros delegation, consensus, multi-signature transactions, light client mode, incentive fees, and a lot more. This is a big upgrade that has a lot of Cardano supporters excited, as it will bring numerous new features and improvements to the coin’s network.

While many expect Shelley to spark a new price surge, Cardano fans are also expecting the same from Trezor listing. Even though the coin is only one step away from being officially supported by Trezor, no large price surge has arrived as of yet. Right now, Cardano is managing to maintain a fragile balance, with its price going up and down by only a fraction of a cent. At the time of writing, ADA’s price is at $0.072433 per coin, and the coin seems ready to spike up at any moment.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
