Crypto News. Could Ethereum Steal Bitcoin's Crown as the Top Crypto?

Because of its inherent scarcity and low inflation rate, Bitcoin has long been hailed as a prime store of value. However, Ethereum may very well be poised to steal Bitcoin’s crown as the top crypto in the not-so-distant future.

In August 2021, Ethereum programmers introduced the London hard fork, which led to an innovative feature that caused Ethereum to become deflationary.

Since the Merge, there are about 120.51 million Ether tokens in circulation. Ethereum's inflation rate was over 4.5% before the switch to proof-of-stake but dropped significantly after the Merge. For comparison, CryptoSlate reports that Bitcoin's inflation rate is currently less than 2%.

Today, Ethereum is still one of the most widely used blockchains in the world, even though its price has fallen more than 60% from its all-time high of $4,840 in 2021. However, demand is predicted to rise as network activity increases, which in turn will increase deflationary pressures.

So could Ethereum replace Bitcoin? Perhaps, but for now, many investors are taking advantage of current market conditions to buy Ethereum while the price is still low, hoping to reap the rewards of its exciting deflationary feature in the long run.

XEROF can assist you with OTC trading at every level by providing you with the tools and resources you need to succeed. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced trader trying to diversify your portfolio or considering purchasing your first property with Bitcoin, we can help!

Real Estate News. Since 2016, Real Estate Startups Have Increased by a Whopping 200%

PropTech, or property technology, has benefited all parties involved in the real estate industry, including landlords, tenants, investors, and brokers.

Real estate technology systems and other PropTech innovations increase efficiency throughout the lifecycle of a property, from purchase to portfolio management and beyond.

So far, the changes in the PropTech industry have had a significant impact. Forbes claims that 51% of real estate purchases are made online and that 95% of buyers interact with online platforms during the research phase.

In India, for example, since the government launched the Startup India campaign in 2015, the number of PropTech companies has grown at a staggering rate of 200%. Startups focused on real estate cater to the sales, construction, financing, and sustainability sectors of the real estate market.

The need to increase real estate efficiency and ensure rapid scalability has opened the doors of technology. Now that PropTech is gaining momentum, it's poised to become more accepted. In fact, by 2030, the PropTech market is expected to be worth over $94 million.

It's safe to say that the future looks pretty bright for this fascinating technological revolution.
