Will Cardano (ADA) live up to the hype around it?

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.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

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…

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…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
