Have you heard of Kik Interactive Inc? A little research will tell you that the social networking platform boasts more than 15 million active users today. Kin, one of the popular altcoins on the crypto market, is a foster child of the Canadian firm.

Kin, the Foster Child of Kik Interactive Inc

Kik Interactive Inc, which has been receiving venture funds from eminent institutions like Tencent, introduced the Kin cryptocurrency to put an end to venture-related funding issues, reported the sources. Just like any other major cryptocurrency, Kin’s performance has been quite impressive.

As evident from the official website of KIN, the altcoin was developed to draw people from various sections to a shared economy, connecting them to the community. When the coin was first conceived, it was looked upon as an incentive for Kik account holders. In fact, KIN tokens have been deployed to provide rewards to the Kik users.

What sets it apart from its peers is the fact that the monetary value can be used to purchase real-life merchandises. Came into the market in September 2017, the altcoin is nourished by a robust community and the company’s stable valuation. With a user base constituting over 15 million users, Kin can overtake the Ethereum network if only 10 percent of Kik account holders use the coin.

Should You Watch Out for Kin (KIN)?

Among the new cryptocurrencies introduced in 2017, Kin has earned special recognition in the crypto community. At the time of introduction, the price of Kin was $0.0001 and its market cap was around $70 million. Unlike other currencies like Litecoin and Bitcoin which have set records in 2017, the performance of Kin was rather flat for the most part of the year, but it is hardly surprising as it is fairly new to the cryptomarket. Things started to change, however, when on December 19, 2017, the price of kin touched an all-time high of $1 billion.

When it comes to the performance of Kin in 2018, it is doing a great job. KIN coin, which was traded at 6.8 percent against the dollar till March 8, has traded at 21 percent over the last week. The KIN tokens are not only available for $0.0002 or 0.00000002 BTC all the important exchanges, which include Bancor Network, CoinFalcon, Mercatox, and COSS. With a market cap of $140,866,268USD at the time of writing, it is likely to continue doing a good job.

Will Kin Cross $1 Billion in 2018?

Although Kin is not listed on major exchanges, it has the support of a stable customer-base constituting 15 million Kik users. In addition, the total supply of KIN tokens can throw others out of the competition. As of 16.03.2018, the total supply of kin stands at 10,000,000,000,000 KIN. Unlike other major coins like Bitcoin, which allow users to buy a fraction of a whole coin or token, kin allows users to buy multiple coins at a lower rate. Although it is very new to the crypto market and its price is extremely volatile, it can be highly profitable if traded strategically. As most crypto critics fear, just because it has a stable customer base it does not mean it will work well with the investors. But you can never tell, for the year has just begun and a lot can happen in the coming months. On the onset of the catastrophic drop in the value of Bitcoin, it is not difficult to imagine that 2018 will be a big year for altcoins like Kin, the market cap returning to its all-time high of $1 billion.

WINGS

WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.

Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.

What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.

The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…

As 2018 moves closer towards its end, investors, developers, and tech enthusiasts are starting to turn their gaze towards the future. 2019 is less than two months away, and it promises new breakthroughs and large changes. This is especially true when it comes to blockchain technology.

While 2018 was an important year for this technology’s development, many are wondering what awaits us in the near future. Because of this, we have created a list of 6 predictions regarding the blockchain, as well as what might happen to it in 2019. Let’s begin.

1. Search for new and better business use cases

Blockchain technology is wrongly seen by many as a magical way to resolve all issues that we struggle with today. However, while it is true that blockchain can help with a lot of them, there are still numerous other problems that are better suited to be solved by alternative technologies. Robotics, AI, and similar technologies are not to be discarded in blind faith in the blockchain.

Researchers and developers have recognized this, which is why 2019 will be dedicated to finding specific use cases for blockchain technology. Blockchain will be used in situations where it can have the strongest positive impact. In other words, the goal is not to find places where this tech can fit, but to find places where it is the best fit.

2. Fixing blockchain industry’s image

Less than a week ago, TRON (TRX) community uncovered a new DEX (decentralized exchange) on Tronscan.org. Since TRON community is among the strongest and most supportive communities to ever support a coin, trading activity on this DEX quickly skyrocketed.

So much so, in fact, that TRON’s founder, Justin Sun, felt that he should share this fact on his Twitter account.

TRON DEX sees massive growth in activity

Since Sun shares a lot of traits with TRX community, such as tirelessness and fascination with this project, he was quick to urge the community to come up with additional tokens and projects.

While Sun’s statement that the activity on the DEX is “going crazy” is pretty accurate, many do not realize just how accurate this is. It should be pointed out that the number of tokens on the exchange was 3 on November 10th, when the DEX was originally uncovered. Today, on November 13th, the number of available tokens has doubled.

In addition, 4 out of 6 trading pairs offered on the exchange have experienced significant gains, with the remaining two experiencing only slight drops. The growth was experienced by Dice/TRX (146%), TronWatchMarket/TRX (8.27%), WIN/TRX (89%), and SEED/TRX (1.73%). The drop was experienced…
