Stellar (XLM): The Lobstr iOS Wallet Has Arrived

Lobstr is a widely-used cryptocurrency wallet for Stellar (XLM), and its super easy-to-use user interface and clean look have made it one of the most liked cryptocurrency wallets out there. Before today, it was only an Android-enabled app – iPhone and iPad users were helpless. Until today, that is, when the iOS app finally launched:

LOBSTR iOS Wallet is now available for download in the Apple App Store:

Now, if you are the kind of cryptocurrency holder that finds herself or himself sending Stellar (XLM) coins across international borders, you can do so on Apple devices.
Have you guys tried out this new wallet app yet?

Listings Roundup: Crypto Exchanges Getting New Coins this Week

Even though the cryptocurrency market is wildly unpredictable, constantly zigging when we expect it to be zagging, there are some moments in a coin’s lifecycle that typically lead to a boost in its price tag. When mainnets launch, when crypto teams officially rebrand with a freshly redesigned image, when a celebrity tweets about it, etc.
One big even that has oftentimes served as a boon to a coin’s price is a listing on a new exchange. Getting added to one of the top exchanges, meaning one of the marketplaces where the heaviest crypto trading volumes are reached daily, will almost always generate way more buzz (and way more price increase) than if they are added to a younger, less-trafficked exchange.
But, while you are checking out new listings, make sure you keep in mind that these types of events don’t always send a particular cryptocurrency’s price skyrocketing – and can often have quite the opposite effect.
Anyway, here are some upcoming listings that will happen in the next week:
On Monday, July 9, Aurora (AOA) is coming to CoinEgg with these pairings: AOA/BTC, AOA/ETH and AOA/USDT.
IHT Real Estate Protocol (IHT) will be added to AllBit on the same day, July 9, 2018.
Also on Monday, Tokenomy (TEN) is arriving on LBank Exchange:

#TEN will be listed on @LBank_Exchange, Top 10 Global Exchange! Starting from 4PM GMT+8 on July 9, #TEN can be traded on LBank!Token #deposits will start at 4PM GMT+8 on July 7Supported trading pair: $TEN / $USDT
Find out more about #LBank here:

The following day, on Tuesday, July 10, Skrumble Technologies (SKM) will be coming to Coinbene:

HEY EVERYONE! We have another BIG announcement! 🎉On July 10 we will be listed on yet another #exchange; @Coin_Bene 🚀This is a TOP 10 global exchange listed on @CoinMarketCap, and they keep climbing higher and higher everyday! Stay tuned! #SKM
— Skrumble Technologies Inc (@SkrumbleHQ) July 4, 2018

Oyster (PRL) is heading to Coinsuper (first paired with BTC) sometime during the week, but we don’t have a specific date at the moment.

$PRL to be listed on @Coinsuper_OFCL on the week of July 9th. Initial trading pair will be PRL/BTC. #cryptocurrencynews #cryptocurrencies #ethereum #IOTA
— Oyster Protocol (@OysterProtocol) July 5, 2018

So, there they are. I hope at least one of those announcements piqued the interest of some of the fans or soon-to-be buyers of any of those coins – or at least some current users of those exchanges. Happy trading!

The Bounty0x (BNTY) Beta Launch is (Almost) Here

Bounty0x (BNTY), the decentralized bounty management platform, is about to start its beta testing phase. Originally, the beta launch was set to start today, July 7th, but has been pushed back two days so that “the entire team is available when the new platform is released.” Now, the event will kick off on Monday, July 9th.
The team behind this coin already racked up more than $6 million worth of bounties and tested with more than 22,000 bounty hunters.
Unlike within the alpha version, the version to be released on Monday will feature a brand new role that they haven’t rolled out yet: Bounty Sheriffs. They explain what this new person does in the blog post announcing the details of the beta launch:
Bounty Sheriffs stake BNTY to obtain the right of reviewing submissions made by Hunters. If a submission is verified correctly, Sheriffs will receive a fixed amount of BNTY credited to their wallet, if, however, a submission is verified incorrectly, the Sheriff will lose the staked BNTY.
The BNTY used to reward Sheriffs is purchased from the open market by the Bounty Host that posted the bounty. 
Apart from the addition of the Bounty Sheriff to the platform, the beta version will also feature BNTY staking to review submissions, Optional Bounty Hunter KYC (know your client), Reddit and Multimask integration, as well as general improvements and bug fixes.
Anyone who is excited for this test version will still need to wait until the beginning of next year for the full-blown network to launch, which is expected to have a lot of other additional bonus features on top of what they’re already testing.

ChainZilla Has New Komodo (KMD) Paper Wallets

When it comes to trading cryptocurrency in-person or using phone and tablet apps, paper wallets come in extremely handy – it’s also a really easy way to not have your wallet address floating around out there by saving it in a word document or something like that. If you are using an app that allows you to transfer your funds by allowing your transaction partner to scan a QR code, it’s a really easy process.
ChainZilla decided to up its game and re-do its Komodo (KMD) paper wallets. Here is the result:

If you have some Komodo (KMD) coins, and you want to store them in paper wallet form – go check it out here.
By using this ChainZilla feature, you can generate your own unique KMD passphrase and address.

Game of Thrones Fans: The IronCoin (IRC) AirDrop is Starting

It’s not that hard to find a Game of Thrones watcher – if you throw a stone, you will hit three or four on any given street. It’s a great, well-produced fantasy series that has been considered to be one of the top HBO series of all time (by me, at least).
Now, I don’t own any of these tokens, but I think it’s a pretty fun idea: a cryptocurrency that’s totally based on the fictional world so many of us are already familiar with. It’s called IronCoin (IRC), and it’s the “token of the Iron Bank of Braavos.”
This ERC-20 token is kicking off an airdrop event tomorrow, July 5th, and it will last until August 1st (or until they reach 5,000 participants).

Be aware!!! Airdrop is coming !!! #IRONCOIN #IRC $IRC #AIRDROP
— IRONCOIN (@myironcoin) June 20, 2018

Up to 5,000,000 IRC tokens will be distributed with a maximum of a thousand per coinholder, and you need to follow the instructions to participate – which you can see by clicking the link below. It’s basically just a few social media tasks.
You can check out all the relevant details on the blog post that the IronCoin (IRC) team published on their official Medium Page.
Remember to be careful with your wallet addresses out there, and do your own research before participating in any airdrop event. I promise, by the old gods and the new, that you can’t be too careful with your crypto funds online.

Level01 (LVX): The Next Evolution in Derivatives Trading

This is a sponsored post

Trust certainly doesn’t mean what it used to. These days, we trust more institutions and organizations than we realize. When we buy and sell goods on Amazon or Alibaba, we are putting a lot of faith into a third party to facilitate our daily trade and commerce. When we make financial transactions or use stock trading platforms, there are a number of firms and ….. that we rely on to fully execute our decisions – even if we don’t know that they’re involved.
Regardless of whether or not we wanted it this way to begin with, massive corporations have monetized our trust in a very significant way. It’s not something we think about on a day-to-day basis, but it’s something that the cryptocurrency market is making society rethink completely.
With the blockchain revolution, innovators have been finding new, disruptive ways of redefining what trust means, and have developed some truly remarkable technologies that allow us to move closer to a trustless market – where we rely on reliable, straightforward networks to help us achieve these things (instead of putting all our faith and money into the hands of corporate middlemen).
Level01 (LVX) is one of those industry-disrupting endeavors, and it’s poised to completely shift derivatives trading as we know it.
What is Level01 (LVX)?
By leveraging blockchain and cryptocurrency technology along with machine learning (artificial intelligence), Level01 (LVX) is bringing about a new paradigm in derivatives trading that gives consumers what financial brokerages currently can’t: total fairness and transparency.

Blockchain is enabling technology that has given us a new, evolved form of trustless peer-to-peer technology so that any digital asset – or asset that can be digitalized – can be sent across the world in a moment’s notice. Rather than relying on third-party middlemen to facilitate transactions, we can now depend on distributed ledger technology to reliably execute these kinds of exchanges. It’s exactly the type of technology that Level01 (LVX) has combined with AI to bring us a trustless derivatives trading platform.
The Next Step in the Evolution of Derivatives Trading Software
Level01 (LVX) allows investors to freely trade derivatives from a variety of assets – from cryptocurrencies and commodities to stocks, forex, and indices. The platform features live-streamed data and interactive charts that keep traders fully informed, on top of a multitude of analysis and charting tools for users with more experience.
This app’s proprietary user interface is sleek and easy to navigate, making peer-to-peer exchange on the network a breeze. It is built to effectively get rid of all forms of friction in the user experience that plague conventional exchanges – like fund withdrawals/deposits, multi-tier ID verification, and (Ethereum-supporting) wallet security. On top of that, its automated trade settlement on the blockchain is combined with AI analytics that give users fair value pricing dynamically to P2P counterparties in a trade using current and retrospective market data.
It’s a pretty interesting up-and-comer, and there is a lot of depth to this project. You can check out more about this upcoming platform here.

The Dragon Coin (DRG) Wallet App is Almost Here

Sometimes coin launch events actually coincide with actual boosts in prices of a particular coin – and we think we can see one happening right now.

The ReddCoin (RDD) Beta Release Will Be Delayed 1 Week

If you’ve been patiently waiting for ReddCoin (RDD) to release their public Beta platform, unfortunately you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this cryptocurrency, we’ve covered it a few times before – mainly because it’s a blockchain-based project that we think a lot of people would and could actually use. It’s one of those platforms that would make mass adoption for at least one type of cryptocurrency a realistic possibility.
What is ReddCoin (RDD), you ask? It’s essentially a way for social media users on multiple platforms (such as Twitter and Facebook) to be able to send their friends on those networks RDD tokens without any fees. It would be embedded into those platforms, so that sending people coins would be super easy.
If you are one of the people hoping to see how the beta tests of this platform work out, you will – sadly – have to wait around until July 8th. Why?
Well, there are some issues that have led the team to decide that the private beta release needs about an extra week – so they can fix some issues before the public beta launch can happen.
Here is what they say about it:
“Testing revealed that our back-end needs to be made more robust and secure to accommodate the load from anticipated users. It has also revealed that while ID registration on the blockchain may be succeeding, the extension itself is having difficulty showing the right information to users to enable that process. We need to resolve both of these issues, and some other minor ones, including some encountered with Reddit’s just-released new design before we can be comfortable with the ReddHead community at large using and relying on an extension that will contain real funds. It is critical to us that the extension be as solidly built and reliable as possible, and for that reason, we need a bit more time to make the required updates and changes.”
It is all discussed by the team in this Reddit post – so take a look if you are interested.

Digipulse (DGPT) is Launching and Offering a Free 30-Day Trial

According to Fortune Magazine, there are more than 4 million Bitcoin (BTC) that have been lost forever – a big problem in the eyes of Digipulse (DGPT). This platform, which is launching tomorrow, is hoping to tackle the issue of people losing access to their cryptocurrency wallets. It’s a very bad situation in the crypto market, and it’s also probably a big turn-off for a lot of would-be blockchain users that don’t see the point in taking such a risk.
This type of thing doesn’t really happen in the fiat money sector because centralization and the corporate controllers of the world at least have some sort of accountability. On top of just losing access to your wallet, there are a ton of other things that can go wrong when you are just trying to move funds around. You can accidentally send something to the wrong recipient, you can easily copy and paste something incorrectly, and a whole litany of other human-based errors.
Digipulse (DGPT) has built a platform that can supposedly help alleviate these things, and this is how they describe the product on their site:
“Ensuring that the right parties receive your valuables has never been easier. Digipulse allows you to encrypt, store and appoint recipients to your digital assets with a few simple steps. Your data will be delivered automatically and optionally – anonymously.”
The product is a multitude of things: an inheritable digital safe, a password manager and a will and testament for your old age.
Anyway, this product is launching tomorrow, June 30, and they are holding a special offer to kick things off:

🚀✨🌖 Digipulse will be LAUNCHED on July 1st! Here's everything you need to know:

If any of you guys are interested in what this product, which seems to be designed for serious crypto users instead of casual investors, you can check out more details here.
If Digipulse (DGPT) ends up rolling out smoothly and delivering on its promises, then it could be a serious solution toward the goal of mass adoption.
What do you guys think?

Prediction: Will the VeChain Thor (VET) Mainnet Launch Boost its Price?

Keep in mind that this is just my opinion as a blogger who has followed the cryptocurrency market for some time – I don’t have any deeper insights into this particular blockchain project that other internet onlookers don’t have. I’ve just been paying attention, not only to this coin, but the market as a whole and how it has aligned with other big mainnet events in the industry.
The VeChain Thor mainnet launch is happening tomorrow, Saturday, June 29, but keep in mind that this is just when the snapshot is happening. The actual token swap won’t be completed until a couple of weeks later, midway through the month.
The current VEN ERC20 tokens will be swapped for the VET (Thor) tokens on a 1:100 ratio. Throughout the month of July, there will be other events lining up, like the wallet launch, ledger integration and X-Node status monitoring. If you want the full details of how exactly this will all play out, check out this article and this other article.
Whether it’s the lead-up to tomorrow’s launch, or when the full-blown VeChain Thor ecosystem is up and running in about a month, I have a pretty bleak prediction: this won’t really have much of an effect on this coin’s price.
Let’s face it: these days, big events like platform launches, token swaps, new listings, etc., aren’t a guaranteed boost to a coin’s price. In fact, tons of projects have tanked in value right after their mainnet launches, even after they already have client contracts and a useful product.
VeChain Thor clearly has a lot of potential in the supply chain sector, but we can’t seriously expect that to translate to crypto buyers in general lining up and purchasing more of these coins to drive the price up. The market seems to just keep following the BTC/ETH downward hurl toward new, increasingly deeper dips.
Maybe my prediction won’t come true, and – to be clear – I don’t own any VEN and won’t be purchasing any. But, as an onlooker who sees the high hopes that Reddit fans of this cryptocurrency are holding on to, it’s a little hard to watch.
This project is something that a lot of people really believed in and are putting their financial faith into, but the success of the VeChain Thor mainnet launch doesn’t directly correlate to how this new coin will perform on the exchanges.
With high-potential projects like this, I hope for the best – but reality typically brings us back to Earth pretty quickly.
