Cardano (ADA) is one of the top cryptocurrencies in the crypto sphere. At the time of writing, Cardano is priced at $0.162 and is the 8th largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. Cardano is a long-term project (has a real-life use and incredible purpose), and there is a big hype around it at the moment, but can it live up to it?

So, Cardano (ADA) is a long-term project that’s not fully completed yet. In the last 48 hours, the cryptocurrency fell short from $0.171 to $0.168. Cardano had an all-time high of about $1.12, but since then, even with other cryptocurrencies market, all we have seen so far is a huge dip (but still it has resisted quite well, and the dip has been because of the continuous fall of the crypto market in recent times).

Reasons why Cardano may or may not live up to the hype

One of the big things to know if a cryptocurrency will work out or not is the team behind it. As we all know, Cardano (ADA) has a futuristic team behind it. It has three organizations backing it and the IOHK – with Charles Hoskinson as the CEO. Hoskinson is an ambitious CEO, and he knows the strings to pull together to make Cardano a great cryptocurrency in the future.

He has also announced some of the things that are going on with Cardano at the moment. Cardano has two aims: to have a real-world use case, and also to do multiple things. Cardano (ADA) doesn’t want to be monotonous – instead, they are trying to get their hands on various things into their cryptocurrency that investors will need like the Smart Contracts, decentralized applications, and a platform that builds great apps that will be used in real life.

Moving forward, it is necessary to know that Cardano was built in layers to ensure scalability and upgrading. We do know that scalability is one thing that needs to be ensured by a cryptocurrency network. If scalability is not ensured, there may be a fall-off in the system as a result of a high rise in demand on the network. Admittedly, Cardano has made sure their platform is scalable enough.

Cardano’s completed and upcoming projects

Cardano’s roadmap is forthcoming in the next seven days – in one week, we should see more upcoming and completed projects. Here are some of the recent accomplishments by Cardano (ADA).

  • Cardano’s SL MainNet has been Launched
  • Enhancements are constantly made to increase the performance rate of its exchange partners
  • Paper wallets
  • Faster wallet restoration and synchronization
  • TestNet Launched

There are other things Cardano is still working on – throughout the Q2 and Q3, the future of Shelley will be released, starting with delegation and a stake pool TestNests, and Duncan Counts; the open Ouroboros delegation implementation; Multisignature transactions; wallet backend; consensus incentives and fees; light client support; human friendly addresses.

Some ending words

Cardano is also working on Sidechains, which will help its platform to be more scalable. There also are lots of other projects coming up as far as Cardano (ADA) is concerned.

If all these projects get implemented on their platform successfully, then, it indeed can live up to the hype around it. The team behind it is excellent, and we shouldn’t be surprised if Cardano becomes one of the top 3 cryptocurrencies in the crypto sphere soon.

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,…

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…
