Rarely do cryptocurrencies have an announcement or event important enough to make it onto their roadmap. In just under one-week ION has just that, an announcement scheduled for April 12th. What could ION have planned as this surprise?
Announcement Event April 12th
They are calling this event an “Announcement Event” which seems to infer it is likely something of significant importance.
For those who enjoy “trading” cryptocurrencies, ION seems to be a great short term play leading up to this announcement. If the announcement is exciting, expect an extended rally for ION. If the announcement is a disappointment expect a slight pullback. Either way, the week leading up to the announcement will likely see extended hype and ION increasing exponentially in value.
One can speculate all day regarding what this announcement is, but if it was important enough to include in their roadmap it is likely something of great importance timed perfectly with BTC’s bounce.
What is ION?
ION is a cryptocurrency predominantly traded on Bittrex with a few very notable traits. One of their main features is they provide masternode staking ability. With passive income becoming increasingly popular toward the end of this bear market it is likely the value of a masternode increases as the markets turn bullish. This coupled with the release of Pocket Node simplify the ability to set up a masternode. This will likely remove a large portion of the ION circulating supply to place into masternodes. When supply is decreased while demand is increasing, price increases as well.
With Pocket Node releasing imminently and ION having a surprise in under one week (April 12th) it seems ION is poised for strong returns in the short to mid-term.
Ionomy 3.0 is a platform that includes web wallets, a multi-asset exchange, masternode hosting, game management, and their social affiliate program. Currently, Ionomy (“ION”) is focused on building out their stellar team while launching and updating many games.
Currently Ionomy is offering over $1,200 a week to their game users as an incentive to help build and adopt users to the platform. They also have a plethora of already released games that are both addicting and appealing to the mobile user.
With such a multi-faceted approach to cryptocurrency and blockchain ION can succeed via any avenue. Their gaming platform seems most likely to lead them to long term success but being diversified into different areas of blockchain are what make ION such a unique token.
ION is Charged for April 12th
ION has spent all quarter one focusing on team expansion, marketing, game updates, enhancing privacy features, and holding blockchain developer workshops.
Quarter two, starting the week leading up to April 12th is when it seems a major excitement starts. April 12th is when their Announcement Event is taking place and in crypto, that means hype for the days prior, if planning on taking a position, prior to this date is best if attempting to ride the excitement and hype wave.
The remaining of quarter two does not seem to slow down according to their roadmap. XDM is having their ICO and airdropping on the ION ecosystem. The Ionomy exchange will support ETH (and likely ETH pairs) along with BTC sharenode markets. The affiliate program starts mid-way through Q2, which should drive major adoption of ION. More games are planned to be released, with corresponding giveaways of ION. Their already clever and sophisticated wallet will get modernized and a further facelift.
During the bear market ION spent time building as was demonstrated all quarter one and being witnessed heading into quarter two.
It is likely with a major announcement scheduled into their roadmap for April 12th that each day leading up to the announcement sees a northern trend as hype continues to build through the crypto sphere.
ION is one of the few coins that spent 2018 building and is proudly unveiling their accomplishments as the market turns bullish.
