Blockchain is a decentralized general ledger. It is a computer network that has an identical copy of the database and changes its status (records) to a common agreement based on pure mathematics. All this means that there is no need for any central server or any entity we trust (e.g. central bank, notaries, banks, Paypal, etc.). The blockchain is the technological basis for all cryptocurrencies, whether Bitcoin, Ethereum, Hyperledger, etc.

An important part of the blockchain is the smart contracts, a piece of code that is stored in the blockchain network (in each participant’s database). It basically defines the conditions…


Introduction

Blockchain and Smart Contracts open many doors to new decentralized businesses and eliminates the need for expensive third parties. Many new companies are now working on this technology, and large companies are testing it in closed networks to collaborate directly with each other without the need for intermediaries. Moreover, another main reason why cryptocurrencies are more fashionable is because we know that traditional banks, as modern as they want to be, have an old-fashioned culture and mentality. Beyond the typical financial instruments, they have only evolved to provide some online services. Now, with the emergence of DeFi (decentralized finance), a…

Introduction to Beagle Finance

We have seen these past few months, especially with the advent of the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), that many projects were promising high APYs that were the temporary loss of betting an LP (liquidity provider) as a rewarding generator. However, almost always the token suffers the inevitable valuation bubble, which is followed by the bursting and imminent collapse of the price.

To eliminate the problems caused by the aforementioned agricultural rewards, static rewards have been chosen. But, is it as good as they say? Well, for one thing, the amount of the reward is conditional on the volume of the…


Introduction to Bitop Exchange

A cryptocurrency exchange is a platform where Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are exchanged for fiat money or other cryptocurrencies. They are equivalent to an online exchange house in which from the transactions/exchanges the market price of the value of cryptocurrencies is established based on supply and demand.

Cryptocurrency exchanges are one of the platforms that allow the exchange of virtual cryptocurrencies, they buy and sell Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and allow those users/investors who seek to profit from price variations to operate.

Bitop (https://bitop.com/) is a currency exchange platform dedicated to digital financial services such as cryptocurrencies or futures stocks.

What is Bitop and why use it?

A few years ago, we conferred value on tangible goods that we could touch and see (gold, stamps, works of art), and now we increasingly do it on intangible goods that we mostly see, but probably cannot touch. Cryptocurrencies are an approximation to that principle, but NFTs go a bit further and apply that concept of the store of value to those more collector-oriented objects.

Contrary to what happens with cryptocurrencies, NFTs cannot be exchanged with each other, since no two NFTs are alike: your letter from a crypto kitty is unique, as is that digital work of art or…


Introduction

Climate change is one of the most talked-about topics in recent years due to its great impact on the entire world. Not only because of what may happen to the earth, but also because of the danger to the human population.

Today, there are many projects that are focusing on sustainability and the environment, in order to address this situation. Within the world of cryptocurrencies, there seems to be a lot of talk about it because its technology, the Blockchain, could be a solution to this. However, recently, a tweet from Elon Musk surfaced about its energy efficiency, which did…


Project Definition

Hello readers, today I am going to talk about a project called Getart (https://getart.io/), which aims to be the world’s largest digital marketplace for placeable cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), including ERC721 and ERC1155 assets.

NFTs are unique digital items, such as collectibles, artwork, or in-game items. These tokens can basically be created by artists, who will be able to tokenize their works to ensure that it is unique, making the ownership managed by blockchain.

So, NFTs are basically an extension of that very idea that the author wants to convey. We used to confer value on tangible assets that…


Introduction

If a couple of years ago we had asked about cryptocurrencies to different people in the world, and about their knowledge of this world, surely the most common thing would have been that they would have said they had no idea about the subject or at most that they knew Bitcoin and little more. However, now things have changed. Cryptocurrencies have become more popular and more common, especially in the trading world. In addition, Elon Musk has caused a boom in this industry with his tweets, and his memes about Dogecoin. …
