JAVASCRIPT 2018 — TOP 20 HACKERNOON ARTICLES OF THE YEAR

JAVASCRIPT 2018 — TOP 20 HACKERNOON ARTICLES OF THE YEARPhoto by Jingda Chen on UnsplashMany great articles have been posted this year on Hacker Noon, but you — busy programmers and developers — can’t possibly hope to find the time to read even half of them half as thoroughly as they deserve. With this in mind, I have gone through the trouble of picking the best ones for your reading pleasure.2018 has been a great year for JavaScript. In June, ES2018 has been introduced — bringing us new features such as asynchronous iteration, generators, and rest/spread parameters. The libraries and frameworks have got much smaller and faster. React, Angular and Vue have all got new features and are now going head-to-head when it comes to being the best choice for creating applications. What a time to be a JavaScript developer!Now, without further ado, here are my favorite Hacker Noon Javascript stories:Top 20 Hackernoon JavaScript posts of 2018:npm package permissions — an idea by David Gilbertson [12 min read]3 JavaScript Performance Mistakes You Should Stop Doing by Yotam Kadishay [4 min read]Goodbye Redux by Jack R.

A Comparison of Hackernoon vs Crypto (News) Sites!

I was curious to see how Hackernoon compares to most crypto news sites, considering more and more people are posting articles on cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technology in general.For this comparison we utilize the fresh index from Majestic, simply because it shows us the most recent data.Let me explain the metrics that we cover here:TF / CFThis stands for trust flow & citation flow, indicators of strength and quantity, ideally you would like those to be 1:1. If the CF is twice the TF it indicates the domain has a ton of spam.Referring domains / IP’s / sub netsThe amount of websites that link to you, and the IP addressses and sub nets they are hosted on. Some websites like to game this by hosting 1000 websites on the same server.TTF — Topical Trust FlowA measure of how close you are to the most trusted websites in almost one thousand categories — cited from Majestic itself.Site ageWhen the domain was first registered, CCN.com was registered in 1992, long before cryptocurrencies existed so without doubt, this domain has been repurposed.DofollowWhen a link is placed its automatically dofollow, which means that Google passes the juice / strength from that backlink. Spammy domains tend to have a high amount of no-follow links, such links are most often ignored by Google.Comparison according to metrics provided by Majestic.comLet’s look at the resultsThe first thing we notice is that most of the crypto news sites score very poor in terms of the TF/CF ratio, while Hackernoon is doing amazingly well, same for bitcoin.com and bitcoin.org In terms of referring domains, IP’s, and sub nets they all score pretty well, as in that it looks rather natural.Most of the sites have a large amount of dofollow links, as you would expect, while the smaller sites score worse, no surprise there either as due to lower budgets its probably harder for them to acquire links.You can clearly see that Hackernoon is doing extremely well, especially for a site that didn’t even exist 2 years ago, kudos for that.There is one thing that bothers me about this comparison, and that is the topical trust flow category: Science, or better said “Social Sciences” according to Majestic.How can it be that Coindesk, NewsBTC, CoinTelegraph, and the both Bitcoin domains score extremely high there?While CCN that’s the exact same type of site scores extremely low here.Is there a conspiracy going on between those sites or is it because CCN is using a repurposed domain with a much older pre-existing backlink profile while Majestic still shows the old stats?You tell me.Another thing that’s interesting to note is that all those crypto sites aren’t related to News at all, or hardly, almost like most legit news sites don’t want anything to do with them.Still Google shows them In The News so they clearly know what those sites are about. When we talk about legitimize you could say Hackernoon is a lot more legitimate in the regular news world.Now lets take a look at traffic stats provided by SimilarWeb:Traffic stats provided by SimilarWeb.comHackernoon clearly beats its crypto competitors at all fronts, you could say its not a fair comparison as Hackernoon is about much more than crypto currencies and blockchain technology, still amazing for such a young site to make such a dent.This comparison also clearly shows that Trust Flow isn’t everything in terms of traffic, considering bitcoin dot com and org are much stronger in terms of link strength.As for traffic, all the crypto sites have seen their traffic almost been halved in the past six months while Hackernoon has been quite stable. I have to admit that SimilarWeb isn’t always 100% reliable in reporting traffic but for a comparison like this it works good enough.Well done Hackernoon!A Comparison of Hackernoon vs Crypto (News) Sites! was originally published in Hacker Noon on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Tron Based ‘Stable Coin’ to Start Trading At Huobi and Okex Exchange

Okex and Huobi Global have added support for USD Tether pegged to the US Dollar built on Tron. Tron Foundation built the ‘stable coin’ collaboration with Tether. Currently, the two Exchanges support three stable coins markets USDT-Tron (TRC20), USDT-OMNI, USDT-ERC20 (Ethereum). The token will be launched on 30th April 2019 on the Okex and Huobi Global Exchanges. According to the press release by Okex: In order to meet users’ demand for stablecoin trading, OKEx will support USDT-TRON, the TRC-20 based USDT token co-developed by TRON and Tether, as well as the airdrop for USDT-TRON holders. …It has a TRON deposit address and uses the TRON network for depositing and withdrawal. Rewards for Early Adopters and Tron’s Growth The annual percentage return (APR) of the USDT-TRON token has been designed to give out rewards for its early adopters. The initial APR is 20% which will, however, reduce with time. Nevertheless, the program is supposed to roll out investments for a total of 100 days. The total amount of incentives will be $20 million. The incentives will be rewarded in USDT-TRON only. Justin Sun has implored the users of the Exchanges to adapt to swap from USDT-OMNI – USDT-TRON. #Hodl USDT-TRON to earn initial 20% APR in USDT-TRON. 100 day campaign. $20M initial budget no hard cap. Just sayin'. 😎 $TRX $BTT pic.twitter.com/jyo7QcrtbE — Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) March 21, 2019 The Stable coin will be available on major exchanges, and the reward programs are lucrative. Therefore, the number of transactions on the Tron Network would increase significantly. Tron has built a vibrant ecosystem for Dapps and issuing digital asset. The move will foster the growth of Tron. It will also help the exchanges take advantage of the transaction capabilities of Tron which is considerably cheaper than Ethereum currently. The returns proposed by ARP are highly lucrative. Will you swap your stable coins to earn the rewards?  The post Tron Based ‘Stable Coin’ to Start Trading At Huobi and Okex Exchange appeared first on Coingape.
