A Plantoid is a robot art installation built on the blockchain. Fully autonomous, the robotic plant survives off Bitcoin donations with the sole objective of reproducing other Plantoids. It exists not only in the physical world as a robotic, synthetic plant but also has DNA in the digital world on the blockchain. Let’s dive a little bit deeper into this unique piece of blockchain art.


In short, reversal chart patterns indicate that a current price trend is likely to change following the pattern’s completion. For example, if an asset is currently in the middle of a price downtrend, the formation of a reversal trading pattern would signal the likely start of a new upward price trend following the pattern’s completion.


TRON is a world-leading blockchain-based decentralized protocol that aims to construct a worldwide free content entertainment system with the blockchain and distributed storage technology.

Bankers are running scared of bitcoin. They covet blockchain technology, but want to maintain some aspect of control, which is why they are eyeballing Ripple, REAL HARD!

Ripple is a banker’s choice in the blockchain because it allows them to reduce cost of crossborder payments while having a central authority (RIPPLE LABS) to act as a liaison to crypto world. 


Cardano is a highly secure blockchain written in Haskell. It allows formal verification of code, and easy extensibility through a layered architecture. Cardano’s technology is built from peer-reviewed research at some of the world’s foremost universities.

After more than two years of planning and development, the Cardano blockchain was publicly launched on the 29th September 2017. Cardano’s Ada token was then made available for trading on the 1st October at Bittrex exchange.


Neo is one of the most promising crypto-currencies on the exchange today. Formerly Antshares, NEO has “smart-contracts” and the ability to produce Gas if kept off of an exchange. It’s been called “the Chinese Ethereum,” but my bet is that 2018 will show that NEO will stand on its own.

cryptoexchange.jpgCryptocurrency exchanges are websites where you can exchange one form of cryptocurrency for another. You can send your cryptocurrency to a “hot wallet” on the exchange in order to trade one crypto for another. It is recommended strongly that once you make the trade, you move your new currency into a hardware, computer or mobile wallet. This will ensure that if the exchange gets hacked, your crypto will be safe on your own system.



Cryptocurrency is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions and to control the creation of additional units of the currency.[1] Cryptocurrencies are classified as a subset of digital currencies and are also classified as a subset of alternative currencies and virtual currencies.
