Crypto Coins news is about to get interesting, as a new article by CoinDesk’s Mike Caldwell highlights some interesting new coin trends in the crypto world.
First up, there’s the new altcoin called Tether.
According to Caldwell, it’s currently trading at $1,200.
That’s pretty close to the price of the original bitcoin, which is currently trading for $3,000.
Tether is also a blockchain-based token, which means that unlike bitcoin, Tether can be used to purchase goods and services.
“Tether has a unique feature, called ‘Tethering,'” Caldwell writes.
In addition to the Tester coins, Caldwell points to the now-iconic coin ZCash. “
These new Tether tokens can then be sold or exchanged for goods and other cryptoassets in an exchange that is hosted on Tether, or on other cryptocurrencies.”
In addition to the Tester coins, Caldwell points to the now-iconic coin ZCash.
ZCash is currently valued at $9.8 billion, according to CoinMarketCap.
But unlike Tether and Tethering, ZCash can be exchanged for a variety of cryptoassets.
In fact, the current ZCash market cap is more than double the market cap of Bitcoin.
This brings up another interesting coin trend.
In a report published on Thursday by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, Caldwell wrote that the value of Ether has risen by over 300 percent since the beginning of 2017.
That trend has continued into 2018.
In addition, the number of coins listed on CoinMarket is up significantly.
This could indicate that investors are increasingly attracted to the cryptocurrency space.
In the past, cryptocurrencies have tended to be highly volatile, with some falling to their current lows.
However, Caldwell writes that the “trend of cryptocurrency value increasing by 300% since 2017 may be a product of investors’ expectations for greater volatility in the future.”
