As per investors interest and demand day by day, the number of cryptocurrencies is including more and more. The advantages of cryptocurrency have attracted so many investors all across the world. Some of the investors believe that the investment that you make in certain cryptocurrencies decides your future. The system that governs the cryptocurrency is really popular and is considered as one of the secure methods of storing and transacting amount.

Gone are the days when you could count the number and types of cryptocurrency on one hand. Today that is no longer possible. The crypto market has grown massively and even growing more and more. Here, I will discuss today important types of cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin changed the global economic phenomenon and is known for its innovative blockchain technology created by Satoshi Kakamoto back in 2009.

It is the first decentralized cryptocurrency that uses blockchain technology to execute peer-to-peer payments. It does not use any central bank or verified the third party to maintain the supply of the currency or control the verified transactions, instead, the distributed blockchain acts as a ledger of all transactions. Bitcoin has the highest market cap and seems to be the best choice for anyone entering the cryptocurrency space.

Litecoin (LTC)

Litecoin was designed as an alternative or helper of bitcoin to improve the speed and scalability of peer-to-peer transfers. Interestingly,  Litecoin transactions are confirmed four times faster than bitcoin by using an easier proof-of-work system.

Probably, it is the second most important decentralized digital currency. It had the third highest market cap. A Litecoin is just like a bitcoin except with a value closer to what a reasonable person would expect a digital coin to have in a rational market.

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum is a digital currency that uses blockchain technology to facilitate the creation of smart contracts. Smart contracts are bits of code that can be written to the blockchain, makes them prone to change. When you want to use the contract, you create a new transaction on the Ethereum blockchain referencing the contract, and the network verifies the transaction.

Well, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are hundreds of different other cryptocurrencies and bitcoin cryptocurrencies used in various fields and applications. However,  Bitcoin continues to be the most popular and center of attention of investors since it is most useful for everyday transactions.

72% of the institutional investors believe Cryptocurrency price would rise, Survey

Published

on

According to a new survey conducted by Fundstrat Global Advisors, 72% of institutional investors believe that cryptocurrency prices would rise in the case of a decline in global economic activity.

Institutional investors hope that non-governmental and retail market-related investments would be seen as a safe haven due to their distance from traditional markets.

The Fundstrat survey results were corroborated by a Twitter survey that analyzed the similar results, with 59% of respondents claiming that they expect cryptocurrencies prices will rise during a recession.

To analyze it more closely, Cryptocurrencies are normally associated with an anti-establishment movement that started after the 2008 global financial crisis. The movement is known for reducing the global trust in traditional banking systems and governments. Well, it was the time when which led to the creation of Bitcoin by the Satoshi Nakamoto, whose goal was to empower people by allowing them to be their own bank, my own bank I mean decentralized currency.

Despite cryptocurrency’s ties to anti-establishment movements, some analysts disagree with the survey results, explaining that because cryptos are seen as high-risk investments, their success is typically tied to periods of times where investors feel comfortable risking their money.

Mati Greenspan, a senior market analyst at eToro, explained that investors should rush to conclusions regarding how the crypto markets would respond to a recession, reports MarketWatch.

“I don’t think it’s so binary. If we look over the past few years crypto has had a unique correlation with high-risk assets. They have risen as investors sought additional risk,” he said.

Greenspan also explained that the belief expressed in the Fundstrat and Twitter survey are understandable, saying:

“However, I do see why investors think that. Bitcoin was built on the ashes of the financial crisis to provide an alternative to fiat money run by governments and banks. If there was a catalyst that would make people question the role of these institutions then I can see them moving higher.”

Tom Lee, the managing partner at Fundstrat explained that:

“On Twitter, 46% chose XRP as their favorite and 31% said it made “least sense.”—no other token came close. Even 28% of Institutions also said XRP made the least sense and zero institutions picked it as their favorite token.”

The Fundstrat survey was conducted between September 30 and October 3 and consisted of 9,500 responses from investors. The data regarding the institutional views of the cryptocurrency markets was conducted during a dinner event with representatives from 25 financial institutions. However, it remains unclear which institutions were present for this event.

However, the assumptions and results of the survey are on one side but only the time will reveal what would be the fate of cryptocurrency.

Would Litecoin price will be able to reach the Bitcoin price?

Published

on

The market cap position of Litecoin is getting high and achieving new developments. Investors have started taking more interest in it and it is going up and up. But how high can Litecoin go? There are many questions that arise in mind. Could Litecoin reach the same high as Bitcoin? LITECOIN is soaring in price. But could the cryptocurrency reach the same high as rival bitcoin?

Although some altcoins are earning good and global relevance with each passing day, Bitcoin is still hands down the most prominent cryptocurrency in a market. However, that does not mean that there is no space for altcoins to grow, and solidify their spots in the successful crypto market. Among them, Litecoin seems to be the preferred option for savvy investors in the crypto universe and it is no doubt leading the race among all.

Litecoin can be defined as a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open source software project. It operates under the MIT/X11 license, and Charlie Lee created and developed it. It is also a decentralized digital currency just like Bitcoin. It means it also does not involve any central or human involvement. The system allows the creation and transfer of tokens, based on an open source cryptographic protocol.

The latest release of Litecoin is the 0.15.1 version, from March 2018. C++ is the code language. It’s compatible Operating Systems are Windows, OS X, Linux, Android.

Litecoin was produced in October of 2011 as a Bitcoin fork. It was released in that month via an open source client by Charlie Lee, who used to work in Google. The network became active a week later. Since its inception in the crypto market, Litecoin kept on growing and, during November 2013, its aggregate value increased considerably, and experienced a 100% leap within 24 hours. Litecoin made its spot as one of the preferred altcoin options for investors and traders around the world, reaching a $1 billion market capitalization in November 2013.

2017 was a crucial year for Litecoin. For starters, they became the first of the significant cryptocurrencies to adopting the SegWit (Segregated Witness) system, which separates transaction signatures to increase the block size limit of the blockchain. Also, in May, it served as the host platform that allowed completion of the initial Lightning Network transaction, with 00000001 LTC going from Zürich to San Francisco in less than one second.

What are your thoughts about Litecoin? Will it reach the new heights? Let us know in the comments section.
