Cardano’s venture arm partners with Korean trade associations to drive adoption
Cardano’s official commercial and venture arm, Emurgo, signed a memorandum of understanding with two government-approved trade associations in Korea. The partnerships will focus on implementing Cardano for Korean digital content and mobile gaming.
Emurgo enters the Korean market
Cardano adoption continues to grow in Asia. The company’s official partner and commercial arm, Emurgo, partnered with two trade associations in Korea. According to an Aug. 20 press release, Emurgoformally signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Korea Blockchain Contents Association (KBCCA) and the Korea Mobile Game Association (KMGA), both of which are approved by the South Korean Ministry of Science and ICT.
The partnership will bring the companies together and help them develop Cardano’s blockchain-based solutions. Emurgo will work on integrating Cardano into the digital content and mobile gaming industries, two of the fastest-growing sectors in Korea.
Ken Kodama, the CEO of Emurgo, said that mobile gaming was a lucrative industry with a huge potential for blockchain implementation.
Korea’s gaming craze a perfect environment for blockchain
Considering that Korea has the highest smartphone penetration and mobile gaming rates in the world, the country is the perfect tech-savvy environment for driving blockchain-related adoption.
The high rate of smartphone ownership (9 out of 10 South Koreans own a smartphone) has made South Korea one of the biggest consumers of online content. An eMarketer study found that Korean adult consumers spend more than half of their time online on digital content platforms.
In combination with mature technological infrastructure, Korea will be a perfect place to implement Cardano’s third-generation blockchain-based solutions, Emurgo said in its press release. Leading game development and content creation enterprises, hundreds of which are members of both KBCCA and KMGA, will be able to benefit from these solutions.
We are yet to see whether these partnerships have any major effect on Cardano’s ADA, which saw a slight price increase in the past couple of days, growing over 6 percent between Aug. 21 and Aug. 22.
Cardano ADA Bounces Back Rising By Over 6% Outperforming Bitcoin Following Bearish Fall
Cardano News Today – The cryptocurrency market is known globally for its high volatility. The price action of cryptocurrencies starting with Bitcoin is totally unpredictable. One minute, the prices can be surging while the following minute they can be falling. This is exactly what happened to Cardano ADA today. The cryptocurrency fell significantly but subsequently started moving higher against the USD and BTC rising by over 6% within a few minutes. The Cardano price prediction 2019 in our Cardano news was bullish at the beginning of the year but the overall bearish pressure in the cryptocurrency market doesn’t seem to favor the token anymore.
Cardano News Today – Cardano Latest Update – Cardano Price Surges After Falling Significantly Within The Same Period
This morning, the price of Cardano ADA fell significantly against the USD as there was no support to hold the cryptocurrency from experiencing a decline. The trend remained bearish for hours with no recovery in sight. The fact that the cryptocurrency has fallen from the $0.100 despite the Cardano Shelley upgrade and every other major development by the Cardano Foundation is discouraging. Ever since it dropped below $0.100, it has faced a steady decline.
Cardano (ADA) Price Today – ADA / USD
The more the price of Cardano ADA falls, the more difficult it is for it to recover. The Cardano price prediction 2019 in our previous Cardano news placed the price of ADA as high as $0.3 by the end of the year. However, with the current price action of the token, the chances of the cryptocurrency moving this to this level are now slim. It is still important to note that the volatility in the cryptocurrency space can quickly take the price of cryptocurrencies higher against the USD. So, there is really no way to predict the trend in the coming months.
Cardano (ADA) Price Today – ADA / USD
Shortly after the price of Cardano ADA fell against the USD, it started to rise moving higher by more than 6%. At the time of writing, the price of Cardano ADA was $0.049989. This means that it is up by 6.58% against the USD and up by 6.36% against the price of BTC. The trading volume over a 24 hour period is $50,233,023 and the market capitalization is $1,296,067,789.
Bitcoin is currently struggling to hold the support at $10k thanks to the market-wide volatility. If BTC moves back to the 9k level, there is a high chance that it will retest $8.5k if care isn’t taken. Right now, investors are trading with caution and hoping that the volatility of cryptocurrencies will drive them upward soon.
