When will Cardano take off
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

As 2018 is slowly coming to an end, a lot of Cardano investors have only one question on their minds — when will Cardano take off?

Cardano (ADA) is still a relatively new cryptocurrency, which is barely past its first birthday. Despite its excellence regarding the technology, its team, excellent leadership, new partnerships, numerous listings, and alike — Cardano’s price is still very low. At the moment, the coin is ranked 9th on CoinMarketCap’s list of largest cryptos by market cap. Its price is $0.083526, with 3.07% increase in the last 24 hours.

However, this is still nowhere near Cardano’s full potential, or even its all-time high of $1.05 which it experienced at the beginning of the year.

However, it is also not that strange that Cardano’s value is so low. The coin has become known for taking the slow route throughout its short history. Additionally, almost entire 2018 up to this point has been mostly bearish, which has taken its toll on all digital coins.

Still, as the year slowly draws to a conclusion, many are expecting another price surge, similar to, or even greater than the one that started a year ago.

Cardano’s recent victories

Despite the fact that Cardano is known for taking its time and doing things slowly, the coin has made quite a lot of progress recently. Only a little over than a week ago, for example, it was announced that Cardano (ADA) will be listed on Kraken exchange. At the same time, it gained support from Infinito wallet, only days before its first birthday.

Similar events have followed Cardano throughout the year, and the coin has been slowly expanding and increasing its reach and influence. Simultaneously, it community began to grow as well. The Infinito wallet listing is an especially important event for Cardano since this is the first time that the coin was supported by a mobile-friendly wallet.

Additionally, even Cardano products are starting to gain attention, which can only be a good thing for the coin. With additional listings and new use cases, Cardano is slowly but surely creating a future for itself. Because of this, many believe that its price will skyrocket at some point, as soon as the market allows it.

When will Cardano take off?

While nobody can predict the future as accurately as the investors would prefer it, many analysts and experts are quite optimistic regarding ADA. Since its launch in September 2017, the coin has grown by around 1500%. It is even among the top 10 cryptos by market cap for a while now.

Different forecasts claim different things, as always, but some of the most realistic ones see Cardano price growing to around $2.5 during next year. The same prediction claims that ADA will likely grow to reach the value of $10 in the next five years.

In the end, everyone agrees that Cardano is not a get-rich-quick type of coin. Investing in it means having patience, and not being afraid to wait for a few years for the investment to pay off. Thanks to long-term predictions, it would seem that investing in Cardano at this point is a pretty good idea.

The coin is bound to stick around, and it has played its cards well during the one year of its existence. With that in mind, there is no real reason to doubt its future, as it has proven to be quite capable and reliable, if a bit slow. Finally, if the new price surge does arrive, as everyone is hoping it will, it is more than likely that Cardano might speed things up, and maybe even reach new heights. While nobody can tell with certainty when will Cardano take off, everyone agrees that taking off is a part of the coin’s future. Because of that, a lot of investors are taking the opportunity, and are investing in ADA while it is still so cheap.

HODLing, or holding on to a certain asset or assets has always been an extremely useful investment strategy, even before cryptocurrencies were even imagined. Now, with the market being more uncertain than ever, many are wondering what is the right thing to do with the coins in their possession.

Of course, things change depending on the coin in question, but today, we are going to talk about why it is a good idea to hold on to your Stellar (XLM) in 2019.

Why You Should Hodl Stellar (XLM)

The crypto market is rich with hundreds, and even thousands of different projects at this point, and separating valuable ones from those that are destined to slowly fade away can be tricky. However, even the biggest skeptics believe that Stellar is a coin that is here to stay.

XLM was first launched in 2014, and for a long time now, it has been among the top 10 cryptos by market cap. It is an open-source, decentralized protocol that allows users to send fiat currencies by using cryptocurrency as a method of transport. In a lot of ways, it is very similar to XRP. However, the biggest difference is that Stellar aims to offer its services to regular people, while XRP is more interested in working with banks and financial institutions.

Nevertheless, sending money, especially when it comes to cross-border…

A lot of people quickly took notice of this coin, and many believe that it is among the coins of the future. Indeed, it has received a lot of attention, and many are interested in why that is, and why investing in it is a good idea. So, let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should invest in ETN in 2019.

1) It is fast

Speed and precision of any service have always been very important to people. This importance is even greater when making a profit depends on it. Electroneum developers were aware of this when they created it, and the coin is up to 5 times faster than Bitcoin. This means that ETN transactions can be confirmed much faster, which in turn reduces fees and waiting time.

Furthermore, there are also plans to create Electroneum Virtual Currency Exchange, which will allow the project to act as an exchange. However, the even…

Has Steemit seen its glory days run dry? There have been many rumors that the CEO Ned Scott has pushed the company to the blockchain focus that he forgot about Steem being a social media platform. Now, these are just things some of the former employees have been heard saying, but it is a rather interesting take as to what is going on. Give the following video a watch where I break down what is happening with Steem. I also give my thoughts on what may happen to other large ICOs and how we may see this trend continue as we have seen with ConsenSys laying off 10% of their workforce.

If the big name projects are starting to do this will it also have a trickle-down effect on other ICO’s which have no products and are running out of cash? I definitely think so, and I also see this negatively affecting Ethereum for the mid-term. The question many have been asking is just how long can the bottom 1800 projects last with the current market conditions? How many ICOs did not liquidate their Ethereum and now are stuck with 1/10th the cash flow or more in some cases, how will they pay to continue operations? What about the growing number of projects laying off employees…
