Massive 1.3 Million ATLS Token Airdrop Scheduled for Tokenized Travel Platform, Supported By Ontology

The developers of Ontology (ONT), a “distributed trust” network for building decentralized applications (dApps), had announced earlier that they would oversee the launch of Atlas’ initial exchange offering (IEO) on crypto trading platform, Coinsuper. As part of the token launch process, “10% of ATLS,” the native digital asset for the Atlas platform, will be ”open for an ONT subscription session” which is schedule to start on April 22nd, 2019. To “celebrate and thank ONT holders,” the Ontology team has announced “a 1,300,000 ATLS airdrop for all ONT holders (no minimum or maximum hold amount).” As mentioned in a blog post published on April 17th, 2019 by Ontology’s management, the Atlas protocol is a “decentralized, tokenized platform.”

Stellar (XLM) Expected To Rally Hard If Golden Cross Comes To Fruition

Stellar (XLM) in on the verge of seeing a big move to the upside should the price succeed in triggering the most anticipated golden cross. Traders and investors became more interested in this cross after Stellar (XLM) got listed on Coinbase. The daily Stochastic RSI forr XLM/USD shows that the price has ample for a rally towards the 200 day EMA. However, it is not likely to break above it in the near future. That being said, we have seen the 200 day and 50 day moving averages draw closer over the past few months. If the price continues to consolidate, we could see this cross over happen in the months ahead. This will be very helpful for the future of Stellar (XLM) as it will put it on the spotlight. Most people in this market couldn’t care less about the underlying technology; all they care about is a way to make money.
If Stellar (XLM) is a high achiever during the next bullish cycle, it is going to have a very high rate of success and it could see the same kind of growth that Ripple (XRP) saw during the last hype cycle. Stellar (XLM) also has a far better chance of adoption and acceptance compared to Ripple (XRP). The recent Coinbase lisitng will definitely help a lot long term. Its strategic partnership with IBM is going to help even more and as time goes by, we could see Stellar (XLM) be used as a payment gateway for different online services and ecommerce stores. Let’s face it, Bitcoin (BTC) could one day be digital Gold but it was never meant to be digital money. We do not use Gold to pay for bills or services; we use paper money. That paper money will eventually be replaced by crytptocurrenceis like Stellar (XLM) that are faster, cheaper, easily storable and transferrable.

The daily chart for XRP/BTC shows that Stellar (XLM) has plenty of room to rally against Bitcoin (BTC). The least we could expect is a retest of the 38.2% Fib retracement level. It will not be easy because the price will have to breach both the 50 day and 200 day moving averages before it can get to the 38.2% fib level. The Stochastic RSI on the daily time frame shows that the price has ample room to pull it off.
RSI on the daily time frame is also ready to take off as the price is ready to shoot up against Bitcoin (BTC) if it continues to linger on for the next few days and weeks. Stellar (XLM) is likely to be one of the few coins that could lead the charge in case of a short lived altcoin season. Ripple (XRP) has clearly lost its bullish charm over the past few weeks and months and it is clear that Stellar (XLM) would be the biggest beneficiary of this transition. As people continue to see cryptocurrencies as more of a revolution against big banks and financial institutions, coins like Stellar (XLM) will rise in demand against Ripple (XRP) and will also have a better chance of mainstream adoption and recognition.

Justin Sun Wants 2000 dApps on TRON Blockchain By EOY

Every day it seems to be that the TRON ecosystem is growing and at an alarming rate at that. At the head of TRON is Justin Sun who is dedicated to creating one of the crucial blockchains across the globe and it seems that this goal is getting closer despite what the critics say about his.
One way to understand the success of a blockchain is through the number of projects developed around it. In this sense, TRON has a big advantage in terms of growth because it is the blockchain that registers the highest amount of new dApps on a daily basis. This surpasses, its competitors like NEO, EOS, Steem and of course, Ethereum.
Sun went on to explain that his end goal is to have at least 2000 dApps running on the TRON blockchain before the end of the year. Of course, this is a very ambitious target but it is possible if the platform keeps up the same pace that it is going at today.

“We already have nearly 300 on TRON in just a few months, and we aim to get to 2,000 by the end of this year.”

What’s also important is that TRON successfully launched the USDT token based on the TRC-20 standard yesterday. This suggests that now, a big number of transactions executed with the strongest stablecoin in the market will run on TRON. This will increase the exposure of users to this blockchain.
In an open letter to the TRON community, Sun explains that this new partnership will be a great way to help stabilise a kind of market like the crypto one. He emphasised that now that USDT will run on TRON, trading and swap tokens like USDT, TRX, and BTT will be much easier:

“I think of USDT built on TRON blockchain as a win for the blockchain industry and for our community. More people will be able to trade TRX, BTT and other TRC-based tokens through the TRC20 based USDT pair, creating liquidity. In turn, liquidity helps build confidence and trust that typically results in greater stability throughout the ecosystem.”

Sun later went on to explain the emission of a TRC-20 is vital in getting to the all-precious mainstream adoption.

From Broke To Bitcoin: Effective Tactics For Earning Free Or Almost-Free Crypto in 2019

If you’re one of the many people just starting to get into Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies but find the price is way beyond what you can afford, congratulations, you’re among the majority of people trying to get into cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is expensive, so is Ethereum and Litecoin to a lesser degree. The writing on the wall is getting much clearer for cryptocurrency by the day; it is here to stay for the long term. So what are your options if you have little to no money to get started but want to start earning cryptocurrency someway, somehow? There is still plenty of hope!
Earn While You Learn while watching 2-3 minute videos on Coinbase Learn. Coinbase Learn is a new part of the Coinbase Exchange that rewards current Coinbase customers for watching videos about a particular cryptocurrency. At the moment, they are giving away up to $50 in Stellar Lumens (XLM) when you watch their short videos and take a quick and easy one-question quiz after each video. If you are not yet a member of Coinbase, this opportunity could be even better, as you will receive an extra $10 in Bitcoin for signing up and making your first $100 purchase. Coinbase is one of the world’s leading Crypto exchanges.

Sign Up For Voyager Exchange for iOS and receive $25 in free Bitcoin. Yes it really is that easy. Voyager is a new mobile-only exchange that was created by some very intelligent E-Trade and Uber alumni seeking to disrupt the crypto space and attract large institutional investors. This company has done some rather creative pivoting in this space by going public on the Toronto Stock Exchange earlier in 2019 to raise capital for further growth opportunities. This company appears to be on the fast track to disrupt crypto exchanges in 2019. They are already live in many US states and poised to launch internationally later this year. This free $25 offer is not going to last long, so I highly encourage you check this out sooner rather than later and sign up even if Voyager is not yet available in your region.

Sign Up For Robinhood Crypto/Stock Exchange and receive an actual stock worth up to $500 once you deposit at least $0.01 into your account. While getting a Tesla or Apple stock is very unlikely, it’s not entirely impossible. Most folks have said they’ve received stocks like Ford, Zynga, FitBit, and Sprint. Still, free is free and you can sell the stock after the probationary period and then use it to buy cryptocurrency or just add the cash right into your bank account.

Browser Mining is a fairly quick and easy way to begin earning Bitcoin. CryptoTab is a web browser built on Chromium (Google Chrome) and is a browser with a built-in bitcoin miner. According to CryptoTab, they are “the world’s first browser with a built-in mining function. With CryptoTab you earn cryptocurrency just by visiting your favorite sites, watching videos, and chatting online.” Once you open the browser and enable the built-in mining feature, you will start seeing the ticker go up after just a few minutes of running.

The earning potential goes up for each computer you have running the CryptoTab browser. The mining process works by using your computer’s CPU, so be conscientious of your computer’s hardware utilization as well as electricity bill when running this browser for extended periods of time.

Surfing Crypto Advertisements can also start netting you thousands of satoshi a day. Using sites like adBTC and ClixCoin will give you access to many offers for clicking crypto advertisements. Please be aware that many of the advertisements are sketchy at minimum and make some rather extravagant claims, so please tread with extreme caution before clicking or signing up for any of the sites on the ads you are viewing. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is (except for this article, of course). Once you view the ads on screen for a certain amount of time, you will be given a certain amount of Satoshi into your account where you can cash out, use for your own advertisements, or just cash out.

Free Crypto Casinos like CryptoSkull gives you an endless free faucet of 500+ Satoshi to use on their casino. CryptoSkull is a play on the old MineSweeper game for PC and increasingly rewards you for each successful move within the game. You can play low-stakes or high-stakes and can cash out your Satoshi at any point in the game. As with any gambling games, this is highly addictive, so please play responsibly and only play the free games, or whatever you are willing to lose.

While the opportunities above are likely going to net you some crypto for little to no money, this is not a get rich quick scheme, and you certainly won’t be able to quit your day job. You will, however, gain access to the crypto world and have more in your pocket to show then if you had not taken the opportunity to use these offers. If you are a believer in cryptocurrency and it’s future place in the world of finance and still want to get in on the ground floor before the next big mooning happens, these opportunities will help gain you free cryptocurrency and exposure to the world of crypto. HODL on, friends!

Could Bitcoin (BTC) Rally Towards $6,000 Before The Weekly Close? 

Bitcoin (BTC) is at a very interesting point. On one hand, we have the possibility of a golden cross that could make the price fly straight towards $5,800-$6,000. This golden cross has a high probability of coming to fruition now that the price is trading above the 200 day moving average. The 50 day and 200 day moving averages are very close and soon as the cross over happens; we could see the price shoot towards the major resistance zone around $5,800-$6,000. The Stochastic RSI on the daily time frame shows that the price could make a final move to the upside to test the resistance zone. In order for BTC/USD to begin its next downtrend, it would be very healthy for the price long term to test this zone now.
The price does not even have a major resistance in its way to stop it from a retest of this strong resistance zone. However, there is one problem and that is that this move is far too obvious. The majority of people in this market whether they are bullish or bearish are expecting this to happen. A lot of bears are waiting for the price to test that zone so they can short sell whereas a lot of bulls are waiting for the price to hit $5,800-$6,000 so they can sell. In my opinion, if the price does end up testing this zone, it will quickly result in a sharp pullback and the weekly candle would leave a long wick to the upside as it retraces. If the price does not have the strength to rally strongly towards this major resistance zone, we could see it crawl up towards it in the weeks and months ahead.

The weekly timeframe is where things get the most interesting. If we look at this chart for BTC/USD, we can see that the price has already closed the last two candles below the 50 week EMA. However, the previous week did saw the price rise way past the 50 week EMA before it ended up closing below it. We could see the same thing happen this time or in the next few weeks. The price could rise towards $5,800-$6,000 and face a strong rejection leading to a close below the 50 week EMA. Normally, we would not discount the possibility of the price piercing straight through the $6,000 mark and beginning the bull market from there, but this time the circumstances are different.
First of all, the price is heavily overbought on the weekly time frame which means we are going to see a sharp move to the downside sooner or later. This decline will have to be steady and it will last over a period of weeks or months till Bitcoin (BTC) finds its true bottom. Second of all, every market cycle in the history of Bitcoin (BTC) has taken longer than the previous cycle. Some people like to associate Bitcoin (BTC)’s market cycles with halvening but that is not true. There is no such thing as four year cycles. As time goes by, Bitcoin (BTC) cycles will keep on taking longer than before as the rate of growth and decline will slow down as the market cap of Bitcoin (BTC) rises.

This Weeks Exciting Crypto Updates: Bitcoin SV, xRapid, and Notre-Dame

This week has been a particularly interesting one for the crypto space. Well, not just for the crypto space though as the recent fire that broke out in Paris has been felt by everyone around the world, something of which you can now help re-build with Bitcoin. Also, this week we saw xRapid make even more waves on a global scale and the controversy that came from Bitcoin SV has made some stirs on Twitter.
Bitcoin SV
Let’s start with Bitcoin SV.
You may have heard of the Kraken Exchange who recently announced that its final decision to delist Bitcoin SV from its platform. This comes as a movement against some unlawful actions that were promoted by the main sponsors and investors of the project, Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre.

On Kraken’s official blog, the exchange explains that the team at Bitcoin SV has manifested a series of unethical behaviours that threaten the general beliefs of the community. Wright and Ayre have been accused of misleading, threats, bullying and as if that wasn’t enough, fraud. Apparently, this has been going on for months too.

“Over the last few months, the team behind Bitcoin SV have engaged in behaviour completely antithetical to everything we at Kraken and the wider crypto community stands for. It started with fraudulent claims, escalating to threats and legal action, with the BSV team suing a number of people speaking out against them. The threats made last week to individual members of the community were the last straw.”

The Kraken exchange isn’t the only one thinking about this though and other important platforms have also got rid of any association with the token. The most important so far though are BitForex, LiteBit, Shapeshift, blockchain.com and Binance.
In asking the community as to whether they should delist Bitcoin SV, Kraken put out a poll on Twitter which got an astounding response from their followers. 70,545 people voted in the poll with 71 percent of them saying that it is toxic and should be delisted.

Should Kraken delist Bitcoin SV (BSV)? #delistbsv

xRapid
Ripple is a company that just keeps on growing. According to the SVP of product at the firm Asheesh Birla, Ripple has been working on keeping that growth going with their XRP-powered cross-border payment product xRapid.
In a recent AMA session, Birla spoke on several topics including the firm’s strategies and plans for its native currency XRP and, of course, xRapid.

“On-demand liquidity is available today in Mexico and the Philippines. So far, the positive responses from our customers in those two countries has been overwhelming. But we are working on the next set of destinations, which we will be announcing in hopefully short order here.

I know our product teams, and marketing and engineering teams are working hard to light up those next set of destinations so that we can provide our customers with increased choice in terms of global expansion.”
Notre-Dame
You will most likely have heard of the tragedy that happened in Paris earlier this week. But a few days ago, the Notre-Dame Cathedral caught fire and left, not just France but, the world mourning such an iconic monument which was built more than 800 years ago.
After the fire, people of the world came together to start raising money to help fix the damages, some which were priceless such as the Cathedral’s spire.
Gregory Raymond is a French journalist, specialising in blockchain and has launched a Bitcoin fund to raise money for the reconstruction of the monument.

President @EmmanuelMacron has announced a subscription to rebuild #NotreDame. Hey bitcoiners, let’s prove to the french authorities #Bitcoin can be an amazing way to send funds quickly, without border and for a good cause ! #bitcoinfornotredame 1JX3k1e1acXENqoKqaAtKKEdE9C2j4WsDB pic.twitter.com/Xu1zULMqL1
