Whenever a new technology makes its debut, it is reasonable to expect that it will face its own fair share of challenges as it tries to carve out a space for itself in its brave new world.
With the cryptocurrency industry, these challenges are rather amplified, as a result of the fact that the industry targets some pretty heavyweight industries like the Banking sector, who will not give up their favored position without a fight. And although the crypto industry has shown a pretty great resilience so far when it comes to the challenges it has been able to sidestep from external sources, it is its internal problems that prove much more worrying. Some of these problems include.
The cryptocurrency universe is an area of modern business which is seen by the majority of people as been too heavy laden with technical jargons that only a very few people truly understand. There are only an estimated 0.003% of the world population that truly understand the inner workings of the blockchain technology which is the engine that powers cryptocurrencies, and naturally investors fear what they don’t know. This lack of familiarity continues to bug down the rise and further growth of the cryptocurrency industry. And despite the fact that the industry is now worth well over half a trillion dollars, it only represents a fraction of what it can truly become.
Another key problem the cryptocurrency industry continues to grapple with is the fact that it is a highly volatile sector that is very much prone to exhibiting unpredictable behavior. Investors in stock markets, Forex and other well-known sectors of business are very much used to dealing with assets with known patterns and whose fluctuation in value does not resemble that of a rollercoaster, going high one second and then crashing down dozens of percents a few minutes later. Cryptocurrencies are still fairly new in the world of business and the speculation about prices of digital assets is what continues to drives its volatility problem in the markets.
Lack of Regulation
The cryptocurrency world is one that is very proud of its individuality and holds its freedom very dear. Being the pariah that has so far defied any kind of government intervention or supervision is among the key things that attract many into using cryptocurrencies. But for those who are looking for long-term investment options, the virtually zero level of oversight is among the things that scare off many more investors. From exchanges to ICO, there is little or no accountability or legal recourse for investors in case a major problem happens. Despite the huge opportunity of making massive profits within very short periods, the lack of regulation and insurance makes cryptocurrencies a no-go area for most institutional investors

Again some basic usage to give you an idea how the app looks
The Bank of England is planning a bitcoin-style virtual currency – but could it really replace cash?
Governments are extremely worried about cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin. These virtual currencies mean you can make payments without involving the banks that most economies and government financial models are built on. People can transfer large amounts of money without the authorities knowing, potentially making it easier to evade tax or launder money.
So several countries’ central banks, including the Bank of England and the Bank of Israel, are reportedly planning to launch their own digital currencies. This could help lure people back into using an official system that combines some of the benefits of both traditional and crypto- currencies. But the risks involved may be too great for many typical cash users to bear.
One of the major drawbacks of existing cryptocurrencies is that their value tends to swing widely and it is often difficult to pinpoint how much they are really worth. National cryptocurrencies would be tied to the value of the country’s official currency, making them less volatile and easier to actually use as a way of spending.
National cryptocurrencies would also make payments much faster because transactions would be recorded instantly and wouldn’t have to be cleared by a bank (although some implementations require around eight minutes to be verified). The existing systems for electronic payments and transfers can often involve several banks and companies sending each other data and running security checks that add time and expense to transactions. Cryptocurrencies are able to bypass this clearing process altogether because they don’t actually involve transfers from one entity to another.
Instead they use a technology known as a blockchain, which keeps a public but encrypted record of all transactions. Basically, as illustrated in the figure below, the payer (in this case, Bob) signs a transaction to agree to pay someone (Alice) a given amount. The transaction is then validated using Bob’s personal encryption code known as his “private key”. If the transaction is valid, it is added onto the blockchain, recording how much money Alice and Bob now have.
Because all transactions would be recorded in this way, the government would have much greater oversight of who is paying whom and how much, helping to crack down on financial crime. Unfortunately, because transactions on blockchain ledger are typically kept as a public record, it might also be possible for other people to access this information and see how much you or anyone else is spending and what you’re buying.
Your money might also be at greater risk if it’s stored as a cryptocurrency. Currently banks guard your wealth and will always release it if you can prove your identity, while credit card companies insure you against fraud. If your bank account is hacked, there is a good chance you will get your money back. But cryptocurrencies store money in independent digital wallets that can be lost or broken into. If that happens there is no one who can help you.
Currency needs trust
For a typical shopper, there would be little difference between using a national cryptocurrency and something like Apple Pay, which makes payments at the click of a trusted application on a mobile device. I love using Apple Pay on my iPhone to purchase my coffee in the morning, as well as my bus tickets and even my parking. I now have little use of cash and only carry around my credit cards in a wallet as a backup in case my battery fails.
Having found out over Christmas that most supermarkets now do not have a limit on Apple Pay, I see it as one of the most trusted methods of payment, especially as I trust the fingerprint scanner on my phone. I also know that my bank is involved in the transaction. So I believe the days of paper money – and even carrying around cards – are rapidly fading. Our mobile phone and our trust in our apps provide us with more trusted ways of making transactions.
But Apple Pay is still backed up by trusted financial institutions. The step to cryptocurrency may be one step too far for most people. Few people would actually understand the risks of storing the cryptocurrency in a digital wallet and could leave themselves open to losing all their money.
I believe that most countries will deal with cryptocurrencies by regulating them and monitoring their use rather than co-opting them. But it will be interesting to see whether regulation or competition will win in the battle of crytocurrencies. While the encryption of crytocurrencies can create strong digital trust in the technology, human trust in the transactions themselves will likely be the key factor that determines whether citizens adopt government-backed cryptocurrencies.
In this article we look at our next iPad app for cryptocurrencies, this one is called Crypto Master real time tracker.
This is another one of the bigger and more full featured apps available, it supports more than 1000 cryptocurrencies – so the chances are the one(s) you are interested in will be available, on top of that it supports most if not all of the major currency exchanges such as Coinbase, GDAX, Poloniex, Bittrex, Kraken, HitBTC, Bitfinex, Coinmama, LocalBitcoins, Gemini, Bisq, Bitstamp, Bithumb, Quoine, BitFlyer, Binance and CEX.io.
Most importantly the quotes are realtime so you have the most accurate information at all time – a crucial factor when managing your purchases and sells. You can set alerts, and choose to get the information via push and email notification.
The app comes with numerous charting options and indicators depending on your personal preference (I prefer the candlestick option personally)
Although you may think the interface is quite busy I personally found that it was easy to use and there was a vast array of information at my fingerprints, if you are serious about investing or monitoring your cryptocurrency portfolio and you own an iPad then I would put this on your install list
The app is free but does have in-app purchases to remove ads
Here are some screenshots
In the following video I show you a few minutes of basic app usage so you can see for yourself what it looks like and some of the features
Crypto Tracker appears to be a true all in one app for cryptocurrencies. One of the main features of this app, is that you can monitor the real time prices of more than 2000 cryptocurrencies and more get added when these appear.
The detailed charts provide you the real insight of the market, they have 3 types of charts which people who use financial tools will recognise such as candlesticks, bar and lines. You can create portfolios and this means that you are able to keep an eye on several coins simultaneously. You can also set up alerts to keep an eye on a currency.
On top of this there is the latest cryptocurrency news from various sources and each individual cryptocurrency has a range of useful links and information for those that are interested.
You can sort the cryptocurrencies by the following criteria
Crypto Price Up and Down
Volumes Up and Down
Coin Market Cap Up and Down
Performance 1h, 24h, 1W, 1M
Crypto ages, type, exchange & order
The App supports a number of the major exchanges including Kraken, Poloniex, Bittrex, Bitfinex, etc and you also have the ability to see the exchange rate versus various fiat currencies like the USD, AUD, CAD, GBP, EUR, etc.
If you are serious about cryptocurrencies you can maybe see the next big thing or simply you may just want to see what all the fuss is about and look at the information available.
No audio I'm afraid in this video but here you can see me using the app a little, I found it easy to use and simple to navigate, the information was well presented and despite the fact there is a lot of stats I never felt as if the screen was cluttered up.
