Cardano (ADA) bag holders don t need to worry: There is hope for the future Crypto Recorder
Anyone holding crypto bags at this point is not a very happy person. Unfortunately, selling at current prices, when most altcoins are down by over 90%, doesn?t make much financial sense either. The only hope at this point for anyone holding bags would be to wait. Though this is a risk too, considering that most projects are vaporware, and may die off before the bear market comes to end. In such an uncertain market, where does Cardano (ADA) stand? Going by its fundamentals, Cardano is probably one of the altcoins that hold the most promise. One of the reasons why Cardano is promising is that it is assured of funding all through its development process.

Circle CEO Says Bitcoin and Ethereum are Oversold, XRP Hits 'Expedia of Crypto', and Cardano Reveals Upgrade Launch Date
The CEO of Goldman Sachs-backed Circle says he believes Bitcoin and Ethereum are oversold. In a new interview on CNBC?s Squawk Box, Jeremy Allaire says the actual use on both networks exceeds the current value. ?The fundamental valuation metrics in this space are really focused on the actual usage of these platforms. Now obviously there are hundreds of different crypto assets. There are flagship crypto networks like the Bitcoin network, the Ethereum network. And if you look at the correlations between core usage and value, they?re actually highly, highly correlated. And what we?re seeing, actually, is both for Bitcoin and for Ethereum in particular, there is some decoupling there. Which is to suggest that both of those assets have been oversold. And so, in the case of Bitcoin, maybe moderately oversold. In the case of Ethereum, potentially pretty significantly oversold. So the amount of usage remains very high ? the amount of people deploying smart contracts and the like.?

Recap: PlutusFest 2018 in Edinburgh, Scotland
This past week was an exciting time for the Cardano project! Plutus and Marlowe, functional programming languages for smart contracts on the Cardano blockchain, were released and presented at the inaugural PlutusFest event at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. IOHK researchers and employees came in from around the world to show developers and the Cardano community how these languages are used and what it means for smart contract technology. To kickstart the event, we were welcomed to PlutusFest by Professor Philip Wadler, IOHK senior research fellow. He started us off by explaining why he is excited by IOHK and proud to be working for the organization. Here, he touched on the importance of peer-reviewed research, which is a process followed by IOHK in developing their products and protocols. Philip goes on to introduce Plutus, which came about from an idea of Manuel Chakravarty (who also spoke at PlutusFest), who noticed a problem of having two separate languages for the on-chain and off-chain aspects of a smart contract. As a solution, the Plutus Platform was created, which uses Haskell, a functional programming language, both on-chain and off-chain. Professor Wadler also gave the crowd an interesting brief history of programming languages.

Cardano Founder Confirms v1
Despite the falling prices and major capitulation happening in the cryptocurrency space, there are projects in the industry who continue to push forward with new developments. These projects do not care about the price, they stay laser focused on their goals and get stuff done. One such project that has caught people off by surprise with their substantial growth and recent developments is Cardano. The project has been on fire as of late with the release of two new smart contract tools that are a potential boon for the fintech industry. These tools named Plutus and Marlowe have the potential to put Cardano on the map as a leader in the development of smart contracts for the fintech industry. Also, Cardano?s major update version 1.4 is on the testnet and things are going well.

What is Cardano
Cardano is a project produced by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson. The description on their website checks out a bit like any other sort of cryptocurrency. The platform is home to the ADA cryptocurrency, which can be used to send out and receive digital funds. This digital cash represents the future of loan, making possible quickly, direct transfers that are guaranteed to be safe and secure through using cryptography. The platform is created to assist financial companies and governments to process monetary transactions. The platform is likewise open for developers to develop dApps. The primary challenges facing the crypto-community is the scalability of the blockchains. Due to the decentralized nature, hard and soft forks have ended up being the norm. These solutions are now very sustainable in the long-term, nevertheless. There is likewise an issue with interoperability. Cardano aims to deal with these challenges with their brand-new platform. In a sense, Cardano is comparable to projects like EOS. In reality, they are available in at number 2 in the same area as EOS, which has been named the ?Ethereum killer? due to its exceptional scalability.

Verge (XVG), Tron (TRX), Qtum (QTUM), Dentacoin (DCN): 4 Coins With Great Future
Virtual currency is secure and efficient because it does not depend on some central authority that can be mismanaged or corrupted. Instead, the decentralized nature of most cryptocurrrencies allows transactions to occur in a completely trustless environment. In a nutshell decentralized digital currencies are returning economic power to the people. In spite of the refusal of the crypto market to head due north unrelentingly this year, there are crypto projects that have proven themselves in the midst of the 2018 bearish fog.  Tron (TRX) Verge (XVG) Dentacoin (DCN) and Quantum (QTUM) are 4 such promising altcoins that duly deserve a closer look.
