Icon (ICX) and Stellar (XLM): Altcoins Making Moves

The crypto markets are looking good today. All of the top 10 coins on CoinMarketCap are in the green territory – the list features coins like Icon (ICX) and Stellar (XLM), as well as Bitcoin (BTC). Today, however, we are just going to be focusing on Icon (ICX) and Stellar (XLM). 

Icon (ICX)

Icon (ICX) is currently selling for $4.20. This puts the coin up 10.43% in the past twenty-four hours.

This week, we have seen a few headlines circulating that have involved Icon (ICX). For starters, the masses have been informed that the Icon Foundation has developed (and will launch soon) a blockchain incubator named Deblock. This may have been what caused Icon (ICX) to jump yesterday.

As for today, the Icon Twitter page announced its first community airdrop. Essentially what this means is that anyone holding Icon (ICX) or Ethereum (ETH) in their account has the option to claim an airdrop for free Icon (ICX) tokens. Keep in mind these tokens are limited and will be snapped up fast. 

Stellar (XLM) 

Stellar (XLM) is currently selling for $0.394391, which puts the coin up 6.28% in the past twenty-four hours.

Stellar (XLM) is ranked as the eighth largest digital currency, with a market cap of $7,324,001,039. The platform has not been shy in making a name for itself in the crypto and blockchain space, either. Next week, Stellar will be hosting an event in Dubai, solely for blockchain enthusiasts. 

Aside from the May 1st event and Stellar just completing its 6th Build Challenge, there isn’t a whole lot of news to report on Stellar. However, that doesn’t mean this coin isn’t a force to be reckoned with – I suspect Stellar (XLM) price will increase after the Dubai event. This is because Stellar will show-off all that it can do while presenting to a large, influential audience.
