The Zilliqa (ZIL) token is currently now available on South Korea’s third-largest exchange, Coinone. The exchange made the announcement on the 27th of June of the listing via twitter. The availability of the token on the platform begun on the 28th as many crypto-enthusiasts have been waiting on the release of the second version of the Testnet that will showcase the revolutionary Scilla Programming language.

Scilla has been able to build upon the groundbreaking concept of Smart contracts found in Ethereum as well as to actually show a workable platform for sharding to take place on the Zilliqa Testnet. This will enable any decentralized applications that will be built on Zilliqa to be secure, scalable and be suited for a new class of blockchain applications such as payments, finance, gaming, digital advertising, media and more. These industries will surely benefit from the high throughput already evident on the platform.

The second version of the Testnet has been in development for quite some time now and the team has released it today, June 30th. The new name of the second version of the Testnet is D24 which is a popular durian variety of fruit prized for its creamy texture and bittersweet taste. The team had asked its twitter followers to try and guess what durian fruit it will be named after. This is based on the fact that the first Testnet had the code name of Red Prawn: also a durian variety of fruit.

The team is also developing initiatives that will allow applications to be easily built on the platform as well as to migrate to it. The Zilliqa Ecosystem Grant Program was announced earlier this month and will be a pool of $5 Million that will be given to great projects, teams, and individuals to start building tools and applications for the Zilliqa platform. The objective of this is to support and encourage great individuals and teams around the world to start developing tools, libraries, and Dapps for the platform.

Things are really looking good for the Zilliqa project as we enter in the third quarter of 2018. Current market analysis indicates that ZIL is currently up almost 15% at the moment of writing this. The token is currently valued at $0.07 after Bitcoin (BTC) made an impressive rally today, June 30th, and as a result, pulling up the entire market with it.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
