ZClassic (ZCL) is one of the altcoins that has been through a rough time during the market crash while losing 97% on its price during the tough period of 8 weeks straight and beyond. Many coins have been struggling to hold onto their stability, but many have failed due to the horribly strong currents of the dip, and ZCL was one of those coins. However, as the market is slowly starting to recover, ZClassic seems to be doing a solid good job on bouncing off.
ZClassic and the Horrible Drop
We already wrote about a horrible drop that stroke ZCL during the market crash, making ZClassic one of the biggest losers in the market for more than several weeks. The general opinion, in this case, was that ZCL started to drop dizzily due to the general opinion that ZClassic just didn’t manage to find its way around after being forked out of ZCash.
While ZCash continues to progress, ZClassic was only dropping from that point, causing grave losses to its market capitalization. One of the reasons for the massive drop ZCL has gone through is said to be due to the case where the policy of ZCL was only focused on the miners. With ZCL, miners were allowed to keep all the mined units after aiding in the protocol of verifying processing transactions, which is more than benevolent for ZCL miners.
However, it seems that ZClassic forgot about getting involved in implementing new solutions and working on technological improvements that would attract investors. Since ZCL failed to do so, the crypto soon fell out of the spotlight where it could attract serious investors and acquire partnerships that could potentially sky-rocket the currency.
Moreover, there is another, a probably more crucial reason for having ZCL dropping as hard. Apparently, in March when ZClassic was still dropping hard, Bittrex, one of the major crypto market exchanges, decided to delist ZClassic.
This case affected ZCL negatively by additionally lowering its price and contributing to the further dropping in the market that has already taken its toll at the time. Moreover, availability and visibility of ZCL were significantly lowered, so it immediately became less interesting and less available for investors, giving out a vibe of a coin that offers no prosperity. ZCL was thus ravaged in the market. But, luckily, the tables are turning for this currency.
ZCL is Having a Rebound
Just when it was thought that ZCL has lost it completely due to neglect from the dev team and due to the recent drop of 97% that was an unfortunate product of a long-lasting market crash, ZCL started to recover.
What might be the number one reason for this fortunate turn out of events? ZClassic was once again listed on Bittrex, starting to trade on this exchange once again after it was initially delisted.
This case naturally increased ZCL’s visibility, so the coin was able to bounce off from the market dip while starting to trade in the green.
Since Zooko Wilcox addressed the public regarding this matter, it is expected that the team might finally start working on improvements that could help ZClassic get the place in the crypto world it deserves, potentially getting near the value ZCash has at the moment, which is still far from what ZCL is worth.
How is ZClassic doing at the Current Moment?
ZClassic is finally trading in the green with solid gains that are helping this altcoin get back into the game.
As the market is massively trying to recover from the rough market crash that seems to have finally ended, ZCL is surely following up with the trend as it is rising up against the dollar, while successfully bouncing off.
After the latest change in the market, ZCL is trading in the green with the latest increase of 1.55% against the dollar. At the same time, ZCL is going up against BTC for 2.91% while trading in the green, which at the same time means that ZCL is currently recovering at a faster pace of growth in oppose to Bitcoin.
ZClassic can now be purchased at the price of 4.85$ per one ZCL unit, and everyone is expecting to see ZCL breaking through a value of 5$ per unit.
This currency had its all-time high price recorded back on January 7th when it was trading at the price of 235$ per one ZCL coin. However, it is more than obvious that ZClassic has a long way to go until it is even potentially able to get near its record dealing price.

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…
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…
KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents
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.
KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
