Dash is set to perform a major update to their InstaSend feature to make all transactions instant, secure and permanent. This could be a major step towards using cryptocurrency as a viable day-to-day payment method.

Currently, InstaSend comes as an optional feature that has be manually activated by the user and that incurs an additional transaction fee. With the addition of the new Automatic InstaSend, all “simple” transactions (about 90% of all transactions) will benefit from the instant settlement, which will make paying with Dash as fast as “traditional” methods. Also, InstaSend will not incur an additional fee.

Chart Analysis – DASH/USD

Chart Analysis – DASH/USD

Despite the positive news, Dash has been sliding lower and losing almost 20% against the US Dollar during the last 7 days and close to 5% for the last 24 hours. Currently, it is trading just above $78 and has broken the previous low.

The technical picture looks very much bearish for Dash, and all we can expect right now is a bullish retracement because the downtrend is overextended. A reversal is unfortunately not in sight, at least not based on technical reasons.

The previous support at 86 has turned into resistance and the pair has reached a low at 74, which is now turned to support. As seen from the above 4H chart, the price has printed a rejection candle (long lower wick) right on said support level but it seems to lack strength (small candle body, multiple Doji candles just before it). If we are going to see a correction higher, the first target is 86 and the bearish trend line seen on the chart.

Support zone: 74

Resistance zone: 86 and the bearish trend line

Most likely scenario: bullish correction into resistance (no break expected for the short term)

Alternate scenario: break of 74 support and drop into 70 which is the next BRN (big round number)

Question of the Day: Can Stablecoins Accelerate Cryptocurrency Adoption?

    Stablecoins show hardly any volatility compared to Bitcoin and altcoins, many are hoping that they will be able to bridge new crypto economy and regular fiat money

Question of the Day: Can Stablecoins Accelerate Cryptocurrency Adoption?

Bitcoin, the father cryptocurrency, emerged in hope that it will remove all intermediaries in electronic commerce that cut off their share of payments. BTC was perceived as a P2P way to replace fiat cash in an electronic format, which would enable one party to pay another without any financial institution or payment platform which would demand its share of a transaction as a reward for its services.

What is wrong with Bitcoin

For quite a while Bitcoin was performing the way the crypto community expected. But the situation changed later – BTC rate became weaker, thus bringing down its financial and economic reliability, when it gets to be used as a regular means of payment.

You cannot have a currency that would cost like a British castle today, a gram of gold – tomorrow and a pack of French fries the day after.

At that point practical fintech minds came up with an idea of creating something which would become a breakthrough in the universe of crypto – a so-called stablecoin.

Will stablecoins solve the volatility problem?

Technically, stablecoins are protected from the volatility roller-coaster that Bitcoin and other cryptos love to ride. They are programmed to keep their prices stable and investors now are largely attracted to this new type of digital assets.

Stablecoin does not show any volatility in its monetary value, since it has a fixed connection to an asset it is pegged to. The major goal of using stablecoins is taking the best from decentralized crypto coins and combining it with a constant value. Thanks to it, stablecoins can be used as a reliable means of trade.

Asset-pegged stablecoins

Asset-backed ones get their value from an asset as can be understood from the name. An asset provides the necessary value to a coin, as well as the necessary legitimacy.

A great example of an asset-pegged stablecoin is Tether (USDT). In spite of a series of scandals at the end of last year, it remains the most popular stablecoin in the crypto market.

Recently, it has partnered with the Tron Foundation to launch a Tron-based stablecoin.

Other examples are TrueUSD (TUSD), USD Coin (USDC), the Gemini Dollar (GUSD), and the Paxos Standard (PAX). They are all pegged to the USD.

Crypto-backed stablecoins

Some digital coins work in a similar way to fiat-backed ones, however, they are pegged to collateral crypto. That means that crypto assets that ensure the value of such stablecoins are stored in a wallet similar to escrow.

A good example of a crypto-pegged token is Maker, which is ranked 16 on CMC.

Algorithmic stablecoins

Even though, stablecoin can be interesting at first thought but the way they are built goes against the principle of decentralization that crypto coins have as a foundation. Thus, many crypto fans and evangelists are positive that stablecoins must be linked towards not a centralized asset but a computer algorithm which takes value from a balance between supply and demand.

Basis is now considered the most promising algorithmic stablecoin of all.

Can stablecoin ensure smooth future for the crypto industry?

The primary goal of all crypto assets was and remains to come up with virtual asset that would be liquid enough and not vulnerable to market volatility. From this point of view, stablecoins are a dream of all crypto fans and evangelists of a decentralized economy.

Apart from the potential to conduct crypto transactions smoothly, experts believe it can bridge the two worlds – fiat and crypto, bringing them a mutually beneficial coexistence. However, that may take time.
