It’s Official: Stellar Has 1 Million Active User Accounts

Published

on

Denelle Dixon

The Stellar network has officially achieved a new milestone of 1 million active user accounts. This is great news for this crypto project. Stellar is trying to establish a brand new and improved digital financial system.

This summer only there were more than 300,000 new accounts added to the Stellar network and also an accumulated value of 48 billion XLM have been traded on the Stellar’s blockchain. This is a great year for Stellar when compared to last year where there were just 50 million XLM exchanged on the Stellar chain. When they partnered with the tech giant IBM in late 2017, Stellar stole the spotlight from many other cryptocurrencies. The project is growing stronger and hasn’t really shown any sign of stopping, on the contrary, it showed some massive steps forward. This is potentially one of the leading seasons for Stellar.

Recently, Stellar and IBM announced that they are working on a stablecoin that is connected to the US dollar and they are often loved by the community because they leverage the benefits of the blockchain technology while still being stable. This is a major catalyst for Stellar as well. The ecosystem is also very rapidly expanding and a lot of new projects are now interested to become a part of the network. There are currently tons of interesting projects for payment solutions, tokenizing agriculture and many more. Stellar made a huge investment last year where they got their hands on a blockchain based company named Chain that is working on delivering a service based on a cloud blockchain infrastructure.

Achieving this goal is a great success for Stellar and only opens the question will it propose a problem to Stellar’s scalability possibilities?

Dogecoin Surged 40% After Binance Exchange Listing

Published

dogecoin surged
Dogecoin surged by more than 40 percent after it was listed on the Binance exchange earlier today so in the latest cryptocurrency news, we read more about the price action of the coin. Despite the sarcasm behind the creation of the coin, Dogecoin surged post-Binance listing. The technology behind the coin is legitimate despite being created just for fun. Nowadays, the coin is widely used across the community for tipping and micropayments and is even gaining more traction with the latest announcement. The major crypto exchange noted that Dogecoin will be available for trading and the CEO of the exchange Changpeng Zhao tweeted:
‘’This one is an exception, as there isn't much new tech development (I guess it was never about the tech for this one). The users/community is large, and a famous "ex-CEO" (cough @elonmusk) helps!’’
Right after Musk’s famous comment, Coinbase added Dogecoin and made it accessible for all crypto newbies and experienced traders which further validated the coin’s legitimacy. The price did, however, drop from its high of $0.045 to $0.0035 but the Google searches for the coin spiked and news erupted in almost every crypto media outlet out there. The real question is whether this media attention helped dogecoin or injured the cryptocurrency and the entire economy. The crypto universe is still relatively small so any media attention is deemed useful for gaining traction for new users. This is why Dogecoin’s history behind it should not make a difference in terms of the current value. Cryptokitties for example also showed that the blockchain technology can be used to create games and apps so no matter the reason for its creation, it still has a huge impact on developers and investors and increased the drive towards mass crypto adoption. Despite the current use of Dogecoin in tipping and micropayments, it is still relatively hard for the cryptocurrency to grow out of the name it created for itself. The coin is still perceived as a joke and this doesn’t really help it become the worthy leader for the greater crypto economy. The current listing is still not enough for some investors to be reassured of the fears that burden cryptocurrencies such as volatility, security and headline risks. As noted in the altcoin news previously, some speculated that dogecoin and other projects will help the crypto economy in the long run towards mass adoption.

Tether Keeps On Churning As 50 Million Tokens Enter The Market

tether keeps on churning
Tether keeps on churning out new currency since about 50 million USDT tokens entered the market while the downward slide for Bitcoin continues. In the altcoin news today we take a closer look at the analysis. Bitcoin spent most of the day yesterday in a downward slide and bottomed out at $10,800. From that position, it rapidly rebounded and surged above $11,500 again where the 50-hour moving average stands. Since then, the major cryptocurrency started to fall back again and is currently trading at $10,900. Bitcoin lows are getting lower but on the monthly overview, Bitcoin is still within its range and is trading sideways. This move was maybe linked to Tether since Tether keeps on churning new currency and now the Whale Alert twitter account reported that mint of 5 billion tokens are sparking a dose of speculation. The popular crypto trader Alex Kruger noticed the 5 percent increase and noted:
“Quick 5% $BTC pump following fake tether news on top of oversold intraday charts. Actual minted tether was $50 million, not $5 billion.”
The weekly charts indicate that the things could be turning into a bearish mood for bitcoin. There have already been long wicks through resistance but it was never a closure above it. The horizontal support line stays in the $8,000 region so the larger correction could be heading there as well. Tradingview analysis company issued a report that shows that bitcoin’s 14 percent pullback the market dominance still remains a solid 67.7% at the moment. About $10 billion was lost from the entire market cap over the past 24 hours which is now at $307 billion. The charts are red this morning as most of the crypto assets are continuing the downslide. Bitcoin SV took the biggest dump today losing over 7% and falling below $150. As noted in the latest cryptocurrency news, most of the altcoins are in meltdown apart from the ICON (ICX) token.

Dash Defeated The 51% Attacks, Starts Providing Instant Transactions

dash defeated
Dash defeated the 51% attacks in the latest update and has now become even stronger. Dash has an important role in the crypto ecosystem after Evan Duffield and his partners began the DarkCoin project as X11 saying that they are aiming to fix the problems that the bitcoin project has so let’s find out more about it in the latest cryptocurrency news. The biggest issue that was addressable was the near-transparency of the blockchain so by using shuffling features, DarkCoin makes it highly impossible to learn about a given transaction unless you are involved in it. DarkCoin became ‘’Dash’’ later on so Duffield explained at that time: One issue he believed was addressable was the near-transparency of the blockchain. Using various “shuffling” features, DarkCoin could make it difficult to know a lot about a given transaction unless you were involved.
‘’One of the problems that any project based on Bitcoin suffers is the potential for 51% attacks. In its latest release, Dash has essentially solved the problem by relying more heavily on its Masternode network in addition to proof-of-working miners. The effect is that the entire network can now instantly confirm transactions.’’
The current CEO of Dash Ryan Taylor recently noted that the privacy features of Dash are just a part of the entire experience. He explained that the project provides a ‘’financial user experience.’’ Currently, Dash defeated the 51% attacks in the latest update and the new CEO noted:
 “The Dash network today is not one-dimentional. Dash delivers a user experience second to none in the cryptocurrency space today. Transactions are instant, practically costless, and incredibly secure. We have the most effective governance and funding model in the industry, the longest-running in the industry in fact. The cost to attack the Dash network exceeds even that of Bitcoin because of recently introduced security enhancements.
Dash has been grinding away developing real-world use cases as well, quietly increasing our transactions and becoming a leader in actual real-world use cases. And our next release is going to blow people away, with a complete focus on user experience and the ability to easily build applications on Dash.” In the coming altcoin news, we can see that Dash has a new solution which are chainlocks. This technology cements a transaction in just a few seconds so all of the dash transactions will be confirmed in the same amount of time.

McAfee Is Sure That The Current BTC And Exile Systems Can’t Survive

mcafee is sure
The popular crypto personality is in the coming altcoin news for bashing Bitcoin and the current US system, as well as the exile and everything around them. It seems like McAfee is sure that that Libra is a "grotesque distortion of the original intent of cryptocurrency which is economic freedom" as he said in a recent interview with a crypto news site. McAfee said that Libra is a universal and digital identification that is going to be rolled into the cryptocurrency. He also pointed that everything you do with this currency can be monitored and traced back to you. McAfee is sure that such as system cannot sustain. In the altcoin news, he revealed:
"We each have the right to earn a living and to do what we wish with the money that we earn. I mean, if not, then we are still under the control of the financial system we're trying to escape from. That is the purpose of digital currency: to give control of currency back to the people rather than to governments and institutions that can control the currency that we use."
McAfee is sure that currency is very important - and if we don't have freedom on it - we won't have freedom of anything. His statements were all over the cryptocurrency news. One of them was centered around the reverse of privacy as a "system where everything that you do is known."
"Please God, we cannot tolerate this. Now, they can produce it, but we do not have to use it."
He also talked about his exile in Cuba and praised the country, saying that it is "unique" in many ways. McAfee is sure that he can't go anywhere - he said that he has not paid taxes in eight years and never intends to pay them again.
"Well, it's true. I haven't paid taxes in eight years, and I never intend to pay them again. "
As a final note, he talked about his plans to run for US president. As such, his candidature is definitely raising a lot of dust in the latest cryptocurrency news. The full interview can be viewed on this link.
