Why Qtum (QTUM) Is Reaping The Fruit Of Its Labor In December Bearish Market
The blockchain technology that stands on the shoulder of the two giants in the crypto space ? Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), Qtum (QTUM) has unveiled its potency in the crypto space by standing out imposingly in the market amid the looming bear situation. Certainly the last few days have been rosy for Qtum, as the altcoin continues to up its market value consecutively irrespectively of the daunting situation that is making investors skeptical about digital currencies. Nevertheless, Qtum continues to remain bullish in the market with signs of great recovery. As such, many weighed in that the labor of the cryptographic project in the past might be a great reason for its growth. Even if one does not want to agree, the developments churned out by the blockchain technology in the previous month and early this month is no doubt outstanding.

Cardano Founder Charles Hoskinson Explains Why ADA's New Smart Contract Tools are a Boon for Fintech
IOHK, a leading blockchain research and development firm, announced two tools developed by a world-leading team for writing smart contracts for the Cardano blockchain. The apps are called Plutus and Marlowe and were launched in test format at the first PlutusFest conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. These powerful tools will enable start-ups, the financial services and fintech industries, and academia to prepare blockchain contracts that will run on Cardano (ADA). Plutus provides a general purpose programming language and tools for the Cardano protocol. IOHK?s scientists and engineers have combined the discipline of the Haskell functional language with the ADA network to create a platform for fintech developers to write secure and robust smart contracts. IOHK has provided an easy-to-use exploratory development and testing environment for Plutus contracts based on a novel blockchain emulator, called Plutus Playground. These contracts are ready to be deployed to the blockchain itself.

The recent slump in markets has provided traders with a good buying opportunity, but a recovery may not come in the form of a dramatic vertical rally. While the current fall is a good buying opportunity, traders should not expect a vertical rally. Let?s consult the charts The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph. Every investment and trading move involves risk, you should conduct your own research when making a decision. The market data is provided by the HitBTC exchange. When markets were rising, the novice traders believed they can never go down, and one must only have the courage and patience to HODL. However, after this year?s nerve-racking correction, most of those same traders now believe that the cryptocurrencies are going to zero. They were wrong on the way up, and they are wrong again on the way down. The fundamentals are getting better and are pointing to a better future.

Cardano(ADA) development may be slow, but winning is about getting it right, not being first
Follow us on Telegram | Twitter | Facebook One of the biggest sources of criticism for Cardano (ADA) is its development roadmap. The argument usually is that other projects are moving faster, and could gain a competitive advantage, and render Cardano irrelevant. While this idea looks credible, it may not hold much water in the real world.  That?s because, at this point, there really is no much adoption for blockchain technology. The tech is still in its early days.  This means that at this point, the focus should not be on which project does what first, but rather, which one gets things right. Proof to this is in the issue of scalability. There are lots of projects that have rushed to be first but have got it all wrong. Ethereum (ETH) came first, but solving scalability has become an uphill task. Ethereum?s challenges led to the rise of many ?Ethereum killers?, but most of them have lots of challenges that make them even more vulnerable than Ethereum (ETH). For instance, most of the so-called Ethereum killers are centralized projects that have massive security vulnerabilities. The rush to be first, and to appear to be the best, has led to the emergence oflots of low quality cryptos that may not stand then test of time.

Cardano Price Moves up as All Markets Flash Green
The cryptocurrency and digital asset markets are fluctuating wildly today. Although the day kicked off in the red, some positive momentum has become apparent. Even so, the hourly charts look incredibly abysmal, which is only to be expected at this time.  The big winner in the top 15 so far is Binance Coin, although Cardano is also rising rather quickly. Over the past few weeks, very people seemingly discussed Cardano and its price. That is not because the project has ground to a halt, but rather because bearish market pressure tends to make people overlook ecosystem developments. Now that all markets are on the mend again ? at least, temporarily ? the discussions pertaining to Cardano are slowly turning back toward the technology rather than just the price.

Allow to send web push notifications to your desktop. Cardano founder, Charles Hoskinson, in a recent press conference spoke about US?

Bitcoin Cash: Price Analysis
The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Every investment and trading move involves risk, you should conduct your own research when making a decision. The market data is provided by the HitBTC exchange. November has seen the overall trade volume of retail-focused crypto exchanges drop, while the trade volume of exchanges preferred by larger players has increased instead. After an extended decline, when retail activity drops and institutional activity picks up, a market bottom usually approaches. However, there is still a lack of participation from traditional investors such as investment banks, pension funds and asset managers. These investors are fairly conservative due to regulatory issues, and are likely to gradually enter the space after the groundwork regarding compliance with regulations and custody solutions has been completed.

Some Insights into Cardano´s Blockchain
December 11, 2018December 12, 2018 Hartwig MayerNo Comments In this blog post, we present a high-level overview of the paper describing the Ouroboros Proof of Stake protocol implemented in Cardano´s blockchain. After the overview follow some comments about theoretical aspects of the protocol. In general, Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus protocols elect the network nodes responsible to send the next block to the blockchain on the basis of the nodes? amount of stake. The great benefits of PoS blockchains compared to Proof of Work blockchains are The main challenge of such protocols consists in designing a secure block proposer election which is safe against any adversarial intent to bias the outcome of the sortition. The Ouroboros PoS protocol solves this challenge and provides formal security proofs which guarantee a consistent view of the ledger to all users. There are several other research projects on this topic such as Algorand and Snow White. The Dfinity project is only about consensus, but can be coupled with some PoS to protect against Sybil attacks. There are different versions of PoS protocols like Ethereum?s Casper bonded PoS which is based on penalizing misbehaviour or delegated PoS proposals, e.g. in BitShares.
