What Does the Future Hold for NEO?

So far, NEO has demonstrated that the crypto doesn’t have to be within the top 10 in order to be successful. In fact, it has been one of the fastest-growing crypto platforms around. Still, this is a difficult time for all cryptos, and both new, and experienced investors have been wondering about this crypto, whether it has a future, and if so, what is in store for NEO. Experts believe that it does, and a very bright one, at that. Let us see why.

About NEO

NEO is a cryptocurrency that has yet to become big in the western part of the world. However, the East has seen its potential a long time ago. In fact, NEO is one of the most beloved cryptos in the East Asia, which is why it is often called ‘Chinese Ethereum’. It currently holds the 12th place on CoinMarketCap‘s list, but there are indications that this crypto might rise far above it, and reach the top 10 once more, or maybe even top 5.

Despite the fact that China is among the countries that are not that friendly to cryptos, they still made an exception when it comes to NEO. This is one of the first, and biggest reasons why the experts believe that NEO will go big sooner or later. It is based on its own blockchain and offers the creation of smart contracts and dApps.

We have already mentioned that it is called ‘Chinese Ethereum’, and this is no coincidence. In fact, NEO is a lot like Ethereum, but it aims to do things better, and eventually surpass ETH, which is no small feat. One of the biggest advantages that NEO has over Ethereum is the ability to allow developers to code in various programming languages, where ETH only allows for one, and it is the one of its own creation.

Some things that make NEO specific include the fact that it cannot be divided, which led to the creation of another crypto in its community – GAS. GAS basically serves as a smaller version of NEO and acts as a cent to its dollar. NEO’s platform actually has yet another crypto, which is a relatively new addition and is called Trinity (TCN). TCN is nowhere near as successful as NEO, of course, and not even as GAS. Still, it was listed on BCEX, which may only be a start for this coin.

NEO criticism

Of course, just like other cryptos, NEO is not perfect. One of the biggest issues that the investors have with this crypto is its centralization. NEO is still being controlled by NEO Foundation, which means that they are the ones calling the shots, which goes against the very point of cryptos. The crypto enthusiasts believe that the decision-making should be left to token holders so that the crypto would ‘do’ what the people want it to do. So far, it has not yet been centralized, although there are plans to decentralize it.

What will happen to NEO’s price?

At the time of writing, according to CoinMarketCap, the value of NEO token is at $31.43. This is significantly lower than what the coin used to be worth at the beginning of the year when it exceeded $160 per coin. Still, many believe that this is a rough patch, but the one that will blow over eventually, and that NEO will be able to return to the glory days.

There are many reasons why this may be true, and why NEO ultimately is a pretty good investment. The support from the Chinese government was already mentioned previously, but it is still a good one to start with. Additionally, NEO’s biggest adversary right now is  Ethereum, and despite its size, age, and many advantages when compared to BTC, Ethereum still has technical disadvantages when it comes to NEO.

Next, NEO is known for its concept of smart economy. This is maybe one of the most important reasons why this crypto is not going away since it allows for digitizing almost any of the real-world assets. The concept of smart economy involves even more, and it can be seen as a combination of digital assets, digital identity, and smart contracts. Thanks to the blockchain, traders will be able to get in contact with one another directly and conduct their businesses in a safe, transparent environment.

Conclusion

So, what does the future hold for NEO? According to everything mentioned earlier, this crypto has a reason to stay, and the business world has a reason to want it to stay. NEO brings a lot of various advantages, which will change the way that the economy works forever.

It still has a long way to go before it reaches the heights that it is expected to reach, but if one thing is certain, it is that this crypto is here to stay.

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.

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…
