The cryptocurrency market is in a bit of a tense moment right now. There has been a little bit of a too-good-to-be-true rally going on over the past two weeks or so, and there has been a lot of chatter about whether or not this is the beginning of the next bull run that everyone wants to finally get here – if it comes at all.
Bitcoin (BTC) is nearing the $9,000 mark again, and Ethereum (ETH) has nearly doubled in value since the beginning of this month. Things are looking good.
But we are also at that moment where the surge looks like it’s starting to taper off – and a correction is on its way. Maybe it’s too soon for the bull run? Could it be that the bull run has already started?
Most of the top-valued coins are currently in the red right now (compared to their price a day ago), but there are some up-and-coming altcoins that have managed to stay in the green over the last 24 hours – including Aion (AION).
Aion (AION) is soaring right now
At the time of writing, Aion (AION) is trading at $3.65 – a 10% boost from its price 24 hours ago. That also means that this coin has about doubled its total value in just the past two weeks, similarly to Ethereum’s price trajectory.
So, why is it that this particular cryptocurrency – which calls itself “the internet, decentralized” – making such strong price gains today?
There’s a very good reason.
The Aion (AION) mainnet is days from launching
Matt Spoke is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AION, and he makes update videos on YouTube to show this coin’s investors what the team is up to – and how the development process is coming along.
Earlier today, Mr. Spoke released another one of those videos, which revealed something very important – a solid mainnet launch schedule of Wednesday morning, April 25th. Keep in mind that this is in Toronto time.

This coin has a lot of potential, especially when it comes to security and scalability – it’s really looking big picture as to how the worldwide blockchain ecosystem can be intertwined and still be efficient and safe.
We are definitely keeping our eyes on this mainnet launch, and we can’t wait to hear what critics have to say about it.
