1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / #1 NFT Seller - AnRKey X Takes NFT Platform Rarible By Storm on: March 10, 2021, 11:16:41 PM
In the past few days, NFT marketplace Rarible has seen a new number one. The top sellers’ list is dominated by DeFi gaming platform AnRKey X, which has comprehensively taken over the NFT leaderboard with no celebrity attached as well. AnRKey X achieved a sales volume of over double its closest NFT selling competitor and is planning even more NFTs (non-fungible tokens) due to go on sale in the next few days. Notably, they oversold presale with $450,000 of orders. With cryptocurrency-powered digital art on track for another record month, AnRKey X is enjoying its time to shine.

GenSys.X Launch Breaks Records

AnRKey X provides a way for gamers to purchase, play, stake, compete, and win valuable NFTs and rewards. On March 3, AnRkey X dropped its GenSys.X NFT collection. In just an hour, GenSys.X pushed the project to the number one spot on Rarible.com. Such was the level of demand that the site crashed while only 35% of the way through processing pre-sale bids.

The popularity of the GenSys.X drop continued through the day, with NFTs selling out at an incredible pace. By the end of the day, AnRKey X had sold over 120 ETH worth of NFTs (almost $200k); in contrast, the next bestseller achieved less than half that. AnRKey X was immediately sitting in “hot collections” on Raribles (and still is) with 3 of their NFTs out of the set entering the “Hot Bids” section for secondary market trading within minutes of being sold. Secondary market sales hit up to $47,000 per NFT, a 13,602% increase from the original $343 per NFT price.



Question to everyone, are NFTs the future of gaming in the blockchain?

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Celebrity Owned TIDAL Purchased $7 Million Worth of Sensorium Social VR Platform on: September 01, 2020, 05:48:57 PM
SENSO, a VR token is suddenly in the spotlight following a $7 million purchase from TIDAL — global music and video streaming service co-owned by Rihanna, Daft Punk, Lil Wayne, Chris Martin, and Calvin Harris.

Will this news with huge music celebrities help drive more people to crypto, or will it have the same impact of celebrities promoting crypto last 2017?

4  Economy / Economics / Lithuania President gifted crypto to Estonian President. on: August 15, 2020, 09:45:50 PM


When do we hear news of presidents gifting cryptocurrency to a fellow-president? I hope he installs any ledger wallets and becomes a fanatic! Cheesy IMO, making it easy for these businesses to use blockchain/crypto is key, some of these kiddos still have no idea about the technology too. I hope simple integrations as what NEM Symbol APIs have done with Lithuania's President can open more doors.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Tagging your products on the blockchain for traceability. on: July 19, 2020, 11:26:51 AM
Has anyone tried using blockchain tech to check a tangible product's traceability and how is it effective?

I've honestly haven't tried one yet but I do believe that blockchain can excel in that area, considering that no one can just fake things here. LuxTag does that for tangible products to make sure that it's legit and they are using Symbol blockchain to keep things streamlined and cost-effective. Very interesting that they can maintain their branding/app name and still use all the benefits of Symbol too.

Can this be applied to ALL industries? Ecommerce, Food, Jewelry, etc.?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / How effective can blockchain be in healthcare during this pandemic? on: July 16, 2020, 09:09:42 AM
We can only imagine how hard it is for statisticians to keep track of all that's happening in the world right now, COVID, and other diseases slowly growing in different countries. During these crazy times, how can blockchain help and be beneficial?

For Symbol, their enhanced security could allow healthcare providers to run secure, decentralized databases. Furthermore, considering that data is a critical asset in the healthcare industry, the use of blockchain technology could be very useful for the sector.

Is this something that hospitals, health centers, governments should take a look into? Especially that this virus can stay with us for 1~2 more years.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Do buybacks increase the value of a cryptocurrency? on: May 17, 2020, 02:02:15 AM
There's this new mechanism where tokens are being given a price floor and the net supply of a token are reduced and are bought back coins are burned.

Buybacks allow this dynamic coin offering to issue money-backed utility tokens. At least 80% of the money spent on token purchases during the DYCO will be set aside for buybacks, and this 80% creates a price floor.



Is this in a way safer and more appealing for the investors who has lost so much trust in crypto in the past few years?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Will this codebase be the Next-Gen Blockchain platform? on: March 25, 2020, 10:01:17 AM
From what I'm seeing, this is the first time that this is being done. A blockchain platform will allow public and private applications to interoperate. AVA may have the potential to become the global issuance platform for all digital assets, and this is possible only because of its unique architectural model. They're releasing their codebase to the public and wanted to provide an advanced infrastructure for building decentralized finance (DeFi) applications, enabling anyone to launch their own blockchains with custom validators and issue assets under any required features and rulesets, including custom virtual machines and programmable legal compliance.

Can people use this effectively, and can companies benefit from this feature?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Faster node communication using AVA? on: March 18, 2020, 09:17:57 AM
For decentralized networks, node communication is a primary cause of transaction limitations. Decentralized networks deliver security and transparency by enabling network consensus, and this is achieved by all nodes communicating with each other to agree on the confirmation of a decision (transaction).

As indicated in the article, AVA would require 98,500,000 fewer communications, a near 99% reduction. This figure can be dynamically reduced for subnetwork revolving on low-value microtransactions, by having the minimum numbers of nodes per consensus group in the subnetwork being reduced to just, supposedly 10. With such terms, the number of communications would be just 30,000, a 99.97% reduction.
