A lot of things are happening behind the scenes of Ethereum. While the scaling issues are being sorted, there is another project worth keeping an eye on. Introducing two new identity standards on top of this ecosystem will be a big challenge. Even though ERC20 is a standard associated with digital data, it seems separate […]
Cryptocurrency ICOs became increasingly popular throughout 2017. During the first few months of 2018, that hype seems to have calmed down a bit, even though there’s still plenty of excitement. This is an excellent opportunity to look into various Ethereum wallets which can store ERC20 tokens. As is always the case, hardware wallets are the best solution, […]
FOMO Moments The selloff continues as we enter another week in crypto land. Asian trading is all in the red once again and Bitcoin has fallen to the psychologically critical $8,000 level.

People seemingly like to issue existing cryptocurrencies and digital assets as ERC20 tokens on top of the Ethereum blockchain.

Most of us had hoped we would never have to deal with another crappy Bitcoin fork ever again. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of opportunities waiting to be explored.

One term we hear all too often in the cryptocurrency world these days is “tulip mania”. Financial experts from all over the world have claimed Bitcoin to be a bubble far bigger than the tulip mania many centuries ago. In a way, it is not surprising someone would capitalize on this trend by creating an actual Tulip Mania ICO. This new […]
There are some interesting developments in the world of cryptocurrency wallets. Up to now, no wallet provider has even attempted to reward users for their loyalty.

While the crypto boom has taken the financial world by storm, with investors seeing gains they would never have realized in traditional markets; there is a lot of volatility that many do not seem to acknowledge until they experience the downside. Investing in the gold-rush mentality is what happened back in the dotcom bubble, and […]
It is always refreshing to see joke digital currencies come to market. Although these projects serve no real purpose, the creative side of things is often pretty entertaining, to say the least.
