Facebook’s shadow is hovering over the crypto world.
Cryptocurrency, at its core, is threatened again by the presence of the social media giant, which aims to build a monopoly over electronic payments to take the blockchain space by storm. And users –or at least those who know and have been in the space through thick and thin — start to fear the death of decentralization.
As blockchain technology evolves and progresses, token creators seem to move towards multi-platform integration.
This week, diamDEXX, the issuer of the first coin to be backed by redeemable diamonds, announced its EOS sidechain. This move promises to be a game-changer when it comes to micropayments, one of the company’s main goals. diamDEXX’s token, DIAM, is pegged to the price of $1 precisely to adapt to payment systems and help disrupt traditional payment and financial systems.
Dear investors, crypto enthusiasts, and disbelievers: The crypto market has done it again.
Just in case you’ve forgotten it, the beginning of the year’s market was all chaos and fire. We all had gone through a rough 2018, and were scared that History was going to repeat itself. Bitcoin testing new lows didn’t help our hopes. It was a confusing, painful, and scary time for most.
Right around that time, we set on our path to create DIAM, the most consistent crypto asset in the world. At the moment, stablecoins backed by fiat currencies seemed to be taking the…
The announcement we’ve been waiting for is finally here: The bear market is over.
Even though investors have been nonchalantly announcing the end of 2018’s bear market pretty much since its beginning, a surprise report by Binance recently shook the blockchain world’s waters. On it, the researchers commissioned by the exchange break down different factors, such as the volatility of the market, the number of institutional investors on it, and its similarities to the US stock market to conclude that, effectively, the cryptocurrency market has reached its bottom.
BNB reached all-time-high (ATH) prices against Bitcoin this March. The coin marvelled the crypto world by becoming one of the few serious projects to achieve this through the bear market, giving hope back to investors all over the world.
IBM has recently announced that it will provide blockchain services –particularly, helping issuing stablecoins — to 6 of its banking partners using the Stellar blockchain.
The announcement shouldn’t surprise well-informed crypto investors. From JP Morgan issuing its own currency for the exclusive use of major clients, to Facebook’s coin and asset-backed currencies, we continue to get hints that 2019 will revolve around companies combining cryptocurrencies and fiat money to harness the power of blockchain technology.
The Winklevoss brothers could write the book on success if they needed to.
Having been Olympic athletes (Beijing 2008), holders of $1 billion worth of Bitcoin, alleged masterminds behind Facebook (winning a $65 million lawsuit against Zuckerberg), and now exchange owners, the pair seems to have it all. Including a pretty awesome last name. And yet, they strive for more.
Just like millennials didn’t “abandon” buying houses, they didn’t abandon diamonds.
A big misconception of our times is that millennials –the generation born between 1980 and 1995, according to most opinions — are moving away from “the good old ways.” These comments, normally coming from Gen X’ers and baby boomers, are rooted in a general mismatch in stages of technologic adoption and lifestyle.
The world of crypto seems to have stopped on its rails to talk about the upcoming Face Coin.
What started with a controversial Ad ban (Facebook banning ICO and cryptocurrency-related content advertising ‘to protect investors’) quickly transitioned into full-scale development of a digital money system –allegedly — within Whatsapp.
These advances put us crypto and blockchain enthusiasts in a crossroads we’ve never experienced: With the ‘end-all-be-all’ mass adoption showing on our doorstep… is it time to step back and take a good, hard look at the current state of affairs, or welcome it? …
Ah, the Internet. We know it, we live it, we love it.
Ever since our project went public, we’ve received a considerable amount of messages trying to “expose” and ridicule our idea. And, to be fair… we don’t sweat it! Cryptoland is full of iffy players, so why shouldn’t we have to prove ourselves, like everyone else?
Well, today, that’s exactly what we’re doing.
During the last week, we’ve carefully re-assessed the most common –and even the most ridiculous — misconceptions about our project, diamonds, and the current state of stablecoins, and put together our case for the whole world…
