Four Reasons to be Bullish on NEO

NEO is a project that most of you are probably familiar with by this point, and it is often referred to as the ‘Chinese Ethereum.’ This is a fair high-level comparison, but NEO operates utilizing the Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (DBFT) algorithm - which is a consensus mechanism (as opposed to proof of work/stake) that allows distributed systems to operate effectively and efficiently in the event of a failed component. NEO has traded as high as $180 USD in early 2018, but has since slumped heavily. It now trades around $68 USD on Binance today and has really lagged behind the recent market rally of coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum. There are many reasons that outlook remains bullish on NEO, and below we’ll go through a few:

  1. Adoption - The NEO platform already has 19 projects deployed and running, these are issued in NEP5 format and offer advantages to the ERC20 format of Ethereum. Some NEP5 tokens include Ontology, RedPulse, KuCoin, and DeepBrainChain. They have one of the largest crypto Reddit communities(r/NEO) at over 90,000 subscribers.

  2. Partnerships - The NEO team has announced they are working with the Chinese Government Authorities around integrating real-world assets and smart contracts. NEO is also a part of the G3 alliance, alongside Bitmain(largest Bitcoin mining pool in China) and Elastos (decentralized internet project).

  3. Ecosystem - NEO is positioning itself on a larger scale to become the public cloud of China, offering a full suite of tools such as NeoX (cross-chain contract execution), NeoFS (decentralized storage), and NeoQ (quantum-resistant cryptography).

  4. Leadership - Da Hongfei is a tremendously established and well-respected crypto leader in the world! Check out Coin Central’s spotlight bio to learn more about him.

Hot Coins 🔥 Elastos

ELA (Elastos) - Elastos is the building the first internet operating system that uses the internet as the base-layer infrastructure rather than an application, where Dapps will be able to run on a peer-to-peer network without centralized control. As a result, application programs are unable to access the network, which eliminates most viruses and attacks (especially DDoS attacks) on the internet. The team’s thinking is that network communication should be separated from application computing. Because Elastos is building an entire operating system, the final product will be a decentralized, open source, blockchain-driven platform with a robust economic infrastructure. On Elastos, running decentralized applications and turning digital content into transferable assets will be possible, and ELA tokens will serve as the base currency with a variety of crucial utilities. For instance, projects that are built on Elastos will distribute 20% of their token to the Elastos Foundation, and the remaining 80% will be airdropped to ELA holders for free.  

The Elastos project really began in 2000, when Rong Chen left Microsoft to build the world’s first internet operating system. Since then, the project has received funding from Foxconn and recently formed China’s ‘G3’ alliance alongside NEO(China’s largest crypto project) and Bitmain(largest blockchain mining company in China). With China’s growing commitment to embrace blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies, Elastos is clearly a project of massive scale. ELA has remained relatively under the radar until recently, and currently trades on just one exchange (Huboi) at $76.69. This week, It looks like ELA is going to win the Binance Community Coin of the Month vote, which would be a big listing for the project. Regardless, the future looks bright for Elastos!

Hot Coins 🔥 Waltonchain, NEO and Cardano

Week of Dec 3, 2017

WTC (Waltonchain) - Walton has been on a ripper and it appears people have caught on to the value in the project. WTC is building an RFID blockchain that will empower micro chips to better track everything from clothing to drones. The team is strong and they already have backing from large corporations and the Chinese government. After a 100% run up in price this week, there will likely be a pullback, but crazier things have happened in crypto, and its trading at $9.10 on Binance.

NEO (NEO) has been fairly steady these past few weeks, but continue to have one of the strongest developer communities out there. NEO trades at $42 at the moment, but is extremely well established and any network positioned to be the premier blockchain ecosystem in China is definitely worth having in the portfolio.

ADA (Cardano) - Cardano has also seen a large burst in volume and a bit of a moon pump.  The market cap is now in the top 10 and it will be interesting to see what happens this week. The network promises unmatched privacy and is written in Haskell, which is enables code to be written in a more secure matter. The network also intends to issue an ADA debit card. Considering it was created by an Ethereum founder, it's worth considering. It currently trades at $0.10 on Bittrex.
