Veil wants to make decentralized financial products frictionless for mainstream users

One of the major drawbacks preventing consumers from adopting decentralized products and apps is the friction-filled user experience. For a decentralized prediction market platform like Augur, users are often forced to go through a time-consuming multi-step process just to interact with its features. Veil hopes to change that. Founded by Y Combinator Alumni Paul Fletcher-Hill, Graham Kaemmer, and Feridun Mert Celebi, Veil’s goal is to make Augur’s platform accessible to mainstream users. Augur enables users to create and trade prediction markets on a variety of topics from sports, to elections, to crypto prices. Every market is settled by a decentralized set of oracles — eliminating the need for centralized market makers. However, as previously mentioned, the process to access Augur is often too confusing and time-consuming for your average consumer. Block by BlockBlock by Block: Prediction MarketsRead More “Too often we take for granted that our users share the same philosophy as us,” CEO Paul Fletcher-Hill tells The Block. “We sometimes copy centralized products and just create a decentralized version of them rather than coming up with totally new things that are differentiated as products and not because of their implementation.” And Augur is no different. To maintain its decentralized features, Augur requires its users to download its app and sync it to Ethereum’s network, a process that can take hours and that is even if you can get your app to start syncing. “There need to be companies and products that are built on top of decentralized protocols to bring them mainstream,” Fletcher-Hill says. In addition to a streamlined user-interface design, Veil says it’s improving the Augur user experience in three primary ways: Its platform eliminates the need for users to download and sync their apps to Ethereum’s network. Its platform makes trading on Augur faster and cheaper by using the 0x protocol, which reduces the transactions required to be made on-chain, and offering a customized version of Wrapped ETH, called the Veil ETH, which bundles two transactions (wrapping then approval) typically required by 0x, into one transaction (wrapping and approval). Its platform settles markets faster than Augur by offering a paid instant settlement feature, enabling users to immediately sell their shares to Veil at a reported price rather than waiting for Augur to finalize the market. To avoid settling contentious markets, Veil will only offer instant settlement for markets it has vetted. The firm will initially support four markets: crypto derivatives, hedging products, the Grin cryptocurrency, and Academy Awards. Veil’s user interface To be sure, while Veil’s offerings and user interface do help lower user friction, the process of using its any decentralized platform is still complex. Veil users will still need to use Web3 wallets and extensions like MetaMask or Cipher to trade on Veil. Furthermore, Veil notes that its initial users will be “sophisticated hobbyists.” Veil tells The Block that it has raised a fundraising round in the single-digit millions to fund its growth, from notable investors like Paradigm, Sequoia Capital, and 1confirmation. As to why Veil is focused on building on decentralized networks, rather than taking the much easier centralized route, Fletcher-Hill says “we believe in a decentralized web and that people should be able to use sophisticated financial products without giving up access to their money,” adding, “as a developer it’s just easier to program things like payments, trade execution, or settlement using a smart contract platform than the traditional banking system.” Veil will launch on the Ethereum mainnet on January 15, 2019. The firm tells The Block that “hundreds” of users have already tested its alpha product.

Don’t Make Decisions for 2019 until You Read Our 2019 In-House Predictions on China, US and the rest of Asia

When we launched Global Coin Research a year ago, our goal was to help our readers from all over the world to understand what’s happening in Asia in the crypto market, exchanges, and blockchain projects. We want to help our readers overcome the information, language and culture barrier to define what matters on the ground in Asia, that’s most consequential in shaping the crypto world, and the future. As cryptocurrency and blockchain are such multidisciplinary fields, it is of the utmost importance to understand the various types of entities and individuals that affects it- and that it affects. As the space becomes more mature, we have realized an obligation to help folks understand not just blockchain in Asia, but Asia itself. What are the regulators thinking about China? How are the US projects received in Korea? These important questions all require an understanding of the cultural, political and economic agendas. As a result, we realized what may be more valuable for readers are practical tools, first-principles, and knowledge around the most important entities and key figures that affect the billions of lives there. As a result, we are doubling down on providing more guides and resources for 2019, starting off with our recommendation on the 5 Books to Understanding China and its Internet Economy, including Implications for the Cryptocurrency Ecosystem. This post is about my predictions for 2019. As a writer, I often feel very privileged that I can hide behind the screen and just write and easily put my ideas out there and get it disseminated. And with time on my hands, what I also get to enjoy more than most other folks in industry is that I get to spend a lot of time thinking, observing and listening from smart people all over the world. These predictions for 2019 are all my own. I hope they serve as a point of view and as an initial place for exploration as you are making decisions for your company and investments for 2019 and beyond. There are so many more ideas and content packed in every bullet point, but we tried hard to keep them succint and easy to digest. Ultimately, we’d love to get your feedback and hear from you. Index Index My Top Favorite Predictions Funding and Markets Exchanges China US Korea, Japan, Singapore My Top Favorite Predictions 1.Despite the number of reports and ongoing media coverage about China’s digital currency, we have to be cognizant that investors and media all like to speculate, and their prediction timing can be off by years. The truth is that China’s Central Party moves very slowly, and we likely won’t see China releasing its own digital currency next year or the year after. However, we may see more direct dialogues and interactions between the technology, blockchain companies with the central regulators (discussed more in detail in China section). 2.Globally minded, crypto funds with an understanding for Asia will enjoy significant information and go-to-market advantages than funds that purely just have a US arm. By the end of 2018, we’ve already seen a number of prominent, seasoned Crypto investors gravitating towards a global crypto investment approach such as Dragonfly Capital, Primitive Ventures, Presence Capital and Hashed. And we will see more of them in 2019. These funds have access to resources globally (including being physically closer to the exchanges and companies based out of Asia), which is something very unique and I think is highly differentiated in this market. That is to say, even when I talk to a number of Asian funds, they always seem to have a good grasp of US markets. But it’s often not the other way around. This is arguably because all of the large profile projects are based out the US, but that geographical proximity will no longer be enough in the next year. Companies will come to investors and ask them what differentiated things do they have to offer. My advice for standalone US funds, start finding global alliances now and build your presence in Asia gradually. Know who the Asian funds are, even if you don’t believe in their investment philosophy, but exchange ideas and do your typical investor-dating. Being able to get access both hemispheres will be increasingly valuable. Aside from the partners from the funds mentioned above, individuals who are that have shared their thoughts on crypto globally that I enjoy following include Lily Liu,Sizhao Yang and Su Zhu.3.China built its own version of the internet over the last 20 years. And next year, we’ll begin to see initial applications its own version of blockchain appear. It has begun steps to build blockchain standardization and advocating for the development of a reference blockchain architecture standard for guiding the selection and application of blockchain systems across diverse domestic industries. As a result of ongoing work done there, we should also start expecting the percentage of blockchain and crypto talent in China grow disproportionally higher than other countries in 2

New Platform To Un-Veil Augur To The Mainstream

Memes could catapult Augur into the mainstream. Veil, a new peer-to-peer predictions and derivatives platform, is making its mainnet debut on Jan. 15. The betting platform, built on Augur, 0x and Ethereum, is currently in alpha format. In addition to the usual fare, one of the current betting markets is on the popularity of internet memes. Users can vote on the future popularity of viral images, based on the number of upvotes they receive on Reddit. Source: Kovan.Veil.co Yes, someone actually made money by guessing that this image wouldn’t reach 500 upvotes. Finally, the meme economy is returning dividends. Veil Offers Instant Settlements Veil is built on Augur, which is built on Ethereum. But, as many dApp builders have found, Ethereum is not an easy platform to build on. To reach mainstream adoption, a slow network simply won’t do. So they decided to build on the 0x protocol, “to speed up trading and minimize the number of transactions you need to send,” Veil explained in a Medium post. Veil orders occur off-chain, and “Veil pays gas to persist trades to Ethereum.” Developers also introduced an “instant settlement” feature that lets users settle up once the market expires, meaning winners can get Augur (REP) and ETH into their wallets sooner than later. In contrast, regular bets on Augur can take weeks to become finalized. After a widely anticipated launch, the Augur project has been stuck in the doldrums, boasting fewer than two dozen users in the last 24 hours, according to dappradar. That’s a bit embarrassing for a project that once boasted a billion-dollar market cap. Once the king of decentralized applications (dApps) on Ethereum, Augur has since been dethroned by the likes of Blockchain Cuties. Speaking of cuties, why not create a market for this adorable pooch learning to skateboard? Veil Targets Millions of Markets Veil envisions a future where “millions of people create and trade in millions of markets.” They are betting on predictions markets across four categories: Crypto derivatives - Who needs a bitcoin ETF? Veil makes it possible to “buy leveraged long or short exposure to popular cryptoassets.” Ethereum network hedging - Veil also has crypto miners in their sights and have launched a feed to “track the 24-hour rolling hashrate on Ethereum.” Grin markets - Grin is a private Mimblewimble cryptocurrency whose mainnet launches on the same day that Veil goes live on the Ethereum mainnet. Academy Awards markets - This one is a reflection of the movie buffs that make up the Veil team. Given their affection for award shows, they might want to think about a market for who ends up hosting the Oscars. Veil got a boost after securing funding from some of crypto’s biggest names, including crypto asset investment firm Paradigm, Sequoia, and venture fund 1confirmation. While the Veil team is targeting mainstream adoption, even the Augur project isn’t expecting that to happen overnight. Augur Co-Founder Jeremy Gardner told CryptoNewsAsia last summer that “real adoption is probably three to five years away.” By the way, if anyone wants to bet on the bitcoin price in 2024, there’s a market for that. The author is invested in digital assets, including bitcoin and 0x which are mentioned in this article. Join the conversation on Telegram and Twitter!

Crypto Theses for 2019

The following piece originally appeared on Medium. It was written by The Block technical advisor Arjun Balaji and is republished here in its entirety with Arjun’s permission. If you would like to receive regular updates directly from Arjun, you can subscribe to his e-mail newsletter here. As another year wraps up, I started writing an email to close friends and investors on the “state of crypto” and my forecasts. As it got longer, it turned into this sprawling post. A few notes: This write up contains wide-ranging theses and obvious biases (my own) and is by no means authoritative. Please don’t nitpick. Where I make predictions, I try to be as specific as possible (inspired by SlateStarCodex’s format). Not all predictions are quantifiable. Some will be off and many will likely be directionally incorrect. That’s OK. Unless otherwise specified, my criteria for a liquid, actively-traded project “dying” is either (1) < $100k volume/$20m market cap or (2) primary development abandoned, whichever comes first. None of these predictions are normative; in many cases I see momentum in products or approaches I consider fundamentally flawed. C’est la vie—this is an attempt at a descriptive 2019 outlook. Index Bitcoin Ethereum Other Tokens Private Projects Stablecoins Crypto-funds Product Potpourri Crypto Companies Regulation Closing thoughts on prices and adoption Bitcoin 1) After a strong launch in 2018, I see Lightning Network growth continuing into 2019. I predict the number of Lightning nodes with channels will be ≥ 10,000 from ~2,100 now (60% confidence) due to the proliferation of node hardware and hosted solutions (e.g. Nodl.it, Casa’s node) and easy-to-deploy GUIs like Pierre Rochard’s node launcher. I predict network capacity will increase even more from ~$2m notional to ≥ $25m+ notional (75% confidence) due to the lifting of maximum channel limits, dual-funded channels, etc. 2) At least one major exchange will launch a Lightning Network hub for their users as confidence in the stability and security of the network grows over 2019 (50% confidence). If this occurs, my money is on Binance given their iteration speed and product chops or Coinbase, due to increased focus on adoption and “usage” of cryptocurrencies. I’m particularly excited about Cash App’s potential here given 1) they’re a business that understands Bitcoin 2) Jack sees Bitcoin as a path to “financial inclusion” and 3) Jack’s investment in Lightning Labs’ 2018 seed round. 3) A working implementation of Schnorr signatures, for which Pieter Wuille released a draft BIP in July, will make its way into Bitcoin via soft fork by the end of 2019 with ≥ 5% node adoption (75% confidence). 4) Low volatility and lower prices always attracts concern trolls and people who believe they can “change” Bitcoin for the better. The last two years have seen a lot of forks where the codebase is changed but the UTXO set is kept intact. In 2019, I expect to see the opposite: forks with technology kept intact (to merge future upstream changes) where the monetary policy or UTXO set is modified; an example being the Zclassic team forking Zcash to remove the Founder’s Reward). I predict 2019 will see a major fork proposal from Bitcoin OGs “fixing” post-block reward fee market sustainability either by re-appropriating Satoshi’s Bitcoin (e.g. my tongue-in-cheek tweet-proposal for “Bitcoin Freedom”) or by adding predictable, low inflation in favor of the fee-market (50% confidence). 5) 2018 was a big year for Bitcoin privacy and fungibility R&D, with proposals for Taproot and Graftroot from Gregory Maxwell in Q1, a draft BIP for theDandelion protocol in May, and an emergent path for a soft fork upgrade to Schnorr-based signatures. By the end of 2019, there will be a clear roadmap for “good enough” fungibility and privacy on Bitcoin’s base layer across a meaningful set of trade-offs (e.g., speed, confidence level, etc.) (50% confidence). 6) 2018 saw plenty of promising experiments building products around, with, and on top of Lightning. I anticipate 2019 will see significantly improved UX for developers who want to build with Bitcoin, including web3/Truffle-likeJavascript wrappers, hosted node services, better docs, tutorials, etc. which makes me very excited about the potential for new products. Ethereum 7) 2018 was a big year for proof of stake research with June’s deprecation of EIP 1011 (Hybrid Casper FFG), scrapping the hybrid PoW/PoS step in favor of moving to pure PoS. The next phase for Ethereum—first termed Shasper(Casper + Sharding), now called Serenity (Ethereum 2.0)—has six distinct phases, which stretch over several years. There are 8+ dev teams working on independent implementations including: ChainSafe Systems, building a JS implementation called Lodestar 50-person ConsenSys-backed PegaSys, building an enterprise-grade implementation in Java An independent group called Harmony, building a Java implementationbased on the original EthereumJ

Crypto Projects Are Not Very Decentralized, Claims New Yahoo Finance Report

Cryptocurrencies rose to fame while talking about decentralization, but a new analysis by Token Analyst for Yahoo Finance UK claims otherwise. It suggests that of the top 50 currencies by trading volume*, the top 20 wallets hold an average of 78% of all coins. This shows how centralized token holdings are which appears to counter the decentralized vision these projects aim to achieve. Is Decentralization a Myth? A select few may have more control over a decentralized network than the average crypto enthusiast may imagine. Across the top 50 currencies by trading volume, the top 20 wallets get an undue power over the rest of the community as they hold an average of 78% of all coins. In 16 cases, the 20 biggest wallets were holding over 90% of the total token supply, revealing how centralization works in the background of decentralized crypto networks. Interestingly, a majority of the coins were issued to fund new companies that will use the tokens in their projects. However, Token Analyst’s Jai Prasad said that many of these projects did not even need crypto technology for their ideas to begin with. However, it must be noted that one crypto wallet, like at a cryptocurrency exchange, could hold the tokens of many people, as Yahoo Finance reported: Token Analyst’s Prasad said that the figures were likely boosted by the fact that many crypto investors hold their tokens on crypto exchanges, rather than opening their own wallets. That means the digital wallets of exchanges will be swelled by the holdings of many of their customers. More Details From the Token Analyst Study Token Analyst pointed to a high degree of centralization in token distribution across the top 50 ERC20 standard tokens (tokens created on the Ethereum blockchain). This included several high-end projects like Maker, Binance Coin, Augur, and 0x Protocol. However, Prasad noted that the centralization in top 20 wallets could be a result of people holding their coins with crypto exchanges. He noted that this is a bad sign for the industry as people are likely speculating on prices rather than buying tokens to use on their respective networks. He noted: “If 20 addresses (including the token team and exchanges) own 80% of the tokens, this tells me a few things: 1. Pre-sale investors got in early at large discounts; 2. No one is interested in using the network, and the tokens are used purely for speculation, and 3. future governance (crypto buzzword) will be at the beck and call of few.” Prasad continued to say that ICOs provide token holders a promise of participation in the governance of the network. If a few wallets hold most of the total supply, changes could be forced on the network. If the characteristics of being permissionless and censorship-resistant networks are absent, then we “probably don’t need a crypto network, to begin with,” he claims.

0x (ZRX) Project Struggles to Establish Its Value with Only $3,300 in Fees Generated by Relayers

Despite the promise of the 0x platform to be part of the core infrastructure for building out Ethereum’s decentralized finance ecosystem through the utilization of the ZRX token for governance and transaction fees, so far there have been no formal governance features introduced and there has only been a total of $3,300 collected in fees collected by relayers since August 2017. It remains to be seen if the project can establish it’s value and use case and attract more individuals to participate on the platform. ZRX is currently trading at $0.321. (JF)

Mapping out Ethereum’s Developer Ecosystem

Ethereum is by far the leading smart contract platform for developers. While the number of developers in the ecosystem is a topic of debate — estimates range from 250,000 to 350,000 — download data from popular development tools show that Ethereum continues to see increasing interest from developers. Influential members of the Ethereum community, in turn, have adopted BUIDL as their battle cry for developers to build products ranging from decentralized prediction markets, governance platforms, and security tokens, on Ethereum. With the growing interest in building on Ethereum, The Block has mapped out its developer ecosystem. We categorized the ecosystem into six sub-categories: (1) Protocols & Platforms (2) Testing & Frameworks (3) Infrastructure (4) Scaling (5) Privacy, and (6) Storage. PROTOCOLS & PLATFORMS Projects in this category provide base layers or foundations for dApps, companies, and other projects to build on. These projects can range widely from governance protocols (Aragon and Democracy Earth) to liquidity networks (0x and Bancor) to prediction market platforms (Gnosis and Augur). Generally, dApps or companies building on these protocols and platforms will leverage their native tokens for their operations. TESTING & FRAMEWORKS Projects in this category provide developer frameworks and test kits to build and test their dApps and products. Frameworks provide generic functionalities for developers to change and manipulate to their preferences. Testing tools enable developers to test their products in an environment that would not impact the main Ethereum network. INFRASTRUCTURE Infrastructure project offers pre-built tools for developers to quickly build and deploy dApps. These projects help developers lessen the workload and cost of building, deploying, and maintaining the tools necessary to run and distribute dApps. SCALING Scaling projects are building solutions to help Ethereum scale. These projects focus on a variety of scaling solutions including sidechains (POA Network), layer two (Skale Labs, Loom Network), and sharding (Prysmatic Labs). PRIVACY Privacy projects aim at developing privacy solutions for blockchain networks. Some projects in this category focus exclusively on adding privacy features for Ethereum (Aztec) while others are blockchain agnostic but Ethereum-focused. STORAGE Storage projects help developers store dApp data while maintaining the decentralized features of dApps. Because storing massive amounts of data on Ethereum is costly, developers leverage these decentralized storage projects to off-load the cost and host their data.

0x allows users to trade ether using off-chain order books

First (formally) proposed through a whitepaper published on February 21st, 2017, the 0x (ZRX) protocol outlines the specifications for a decentralized cryptoasset exchange built on the Ethereum blockchain. The whitepaper‘s abstract notes that the 0x (ZRX) protocol aims to “facilitate low friction peer-to-peer (P2P) exchange” of ERC-20 compliant tokens on the Ethereum network. Authored by Amir Bandeali (a University of Illinois Finance graduate and the CTO at 0x) and Will Warren (a University of California, San Diego Mechanical Engineering graduate and technical advisor for Basic Attention Token), the platform’s whitepaper explains: “[The 0x protocol] serves as an open standard ... driving interoperability among decentralized applications (dApps) that incorporate exchange functionality. Trades are executed by a system of Ethereum smart contracts that are publicly accessible, free to use and that any dApp can hook into.” DApps developed using the 0x protocol have access to “public liquidity pools” and they can also create their own liquidity pool. DApp developers can also charge usage fees on “resulting volume.” 0x (ZRX), A Secure, Seamless, Free-Of-Cost Protocol According to its founders, the 0x protocol has been built in a manner that does not “impose costs on its users” or “arbitrarily extract value” from certain users in order to benefit another group of network participants. Decentralized governance is used on the 0x network to “continuously and securely integrate updates into the base protocol without disrupting dApps or end users.” What makes the 0x protocol different, and arguably better, than its competitors, Etherdelta and IDEX (both decentralized exchanges), is that the 0x platform offers off-chain order books. Meanwhile, IDEX and Etherdelta place their order books on the Ethereum blockchain. When you run your DEX on Ethereum, then you also have to pay gas fees for changing or cancelling trades. Using Relayers, Broadcasting Order Books Off-Chain The 0x network uses relayers, which are exchanges that run on the platform and broadcast order books off-chain. These orders are then picked up by the network’s users and once a transaction has been confirmed (buyer fills sell order), then the finalized transaction is recorded on 0x’s blockchain. The 0x network uses a native crypto token called ZRX to process fees that dApps built on the platform (and relayers) may charge. The ZRX token may also be used to vote for protocol improvements and upgrades. Users who are large stakeholders (own a large amount of ZRX) may have more voting power. ZRX Token Distribution Launched on August 15th, 2017, the maximum supply of ZRX tokens has been fixed at one billion. 50% of the tokens had been released at the launch, while 15% had been retained by the 0x development team. 15% of the total ZRX supply was allocated for the protocol’s ongoing development, 10% went to 0x founders, and 10% were reserved for the project’s advisors and early investors. The tokens which have been set aside for the 0x founders, advisors and staff members are to be gradually released over a four year time period. Investors who acquired ZRX tokens when the public token sale first began are able to access and liquidate their investments immediately. Over 30 Projects Launched On 0x Network There are currently more than 30 different dApps and relayers that have been launched on the 0x platform. These include: Aragon, an Ethereum-based project for “building unstoppable organizations”; Augur, the decentralized prediction markets platform; dy/dx, a protocol for decentralized margin trading and derivatives; Dharma, a platform for issuing tokenized debt agreements. Some notable relayers that are using the 0x protocol: Ethfinex, a “digital tokens trading and discussing” network; Paradex, a non-custodial decentralized trading platform; OpenRelay, a relayer built specifically for 0x developers. 0x Over-the-Counter (OTC) Trades There’s also a 0x over-the-counter (OTC) trading service which allows for the person-to-person exchange of ERC-20 tokens without requiring a relayer to complete the transaction. To conduct OTC trades on 0x, users must send a link to their counterparty which is then used to create and send the order. Network users are able to send the order through email, their social media accounts, or even by using pencil and paper. ZRX Listed On Coinbase Pro & Consumer In early October 2018, US-based digital asset exchange’s professional trading platform, Coinbase Pro, added support for the ZRX token. A week later the ZRX cryptocurrency was also listed on “Coinbase Consumer.” As mentioned, decentralized exchange Paradex uses the 0x protocol and it was acquired by Coinbase in May 2018. At the time of acquisition, Coinbase’s management team had said they would be integrating Paradex into Coinbase Pro. Commenting on the advantages and use cases for Paradex, Linda Xie, the managing director and co-founder of Scalar Capital, remarked: “0x was co-foun

Analyst Suggests Usage of Crypto Tokens on DApps is Minimal, Raising Concerns

According to research conducted by Digital Asset Research, the very raison d’être of many crypto coins and tokens may be in question. In a report circulated with paid members of the group, the usage of the ZRX token on the 0x decentralized exchange platform was examined. Quite remarkably, despite the primary purpose of the ZRX token being to pay for the exchange of various ERC-20 tokens, the investigation highlighted that only a tiny percentage of the total transaction fees paid during the platform’s existence were made using the designated token. This forces the question: Do decentralised applications even need their own token? Is ZRX’s Lack of Use Reflective of All Crypto “Payment Tokens”? During the ICO boom of 2017, many startups launched their own platforms and generated immense stacks of various digital assets (mostly Ethereum) from investors hoping to get in early on the next big thing. These projects, although disparate in announced intentions, all had one thing in common - a token. Many of companies behind these projects stated that the tokens sold to the earliest backers would one day be used to power the applications themselves. Thus, it figured that if a project was popular enough, the value of all the tokens in circulation would soar since demand outpaced supply. Many commentators (particularly those of a Bitcoin maximalist persuasion) have long held this to be unnecessary and saw through these token launches as a way for a brand new startup to generate millions of dollars without pandering to regulation. Without much data, their protestations against the ICO craze and the idea that literally everything would one day be tokenised were difficult to support using hard evidence. However, the necessary data looks to be finally emerging and the first interesting observation drawn from it does not paint a good picture of the blockchain “payment token” space. In a report for paid members, Digital Asset Research has disclosed that of a massive $447 million in exchanged value on the 0x platform, just $2,000 of ZRX has been used to pay for transaction fees. A digital asset researcher for The Spartan Group, BlockCrunch, and Deloitte, Jason Choi, Tweeted: Crazy to see it put into numbers. Less than $2,000 has been paid in tx fees via $ZRX since inception. pic.twitter.com/FDFWwN3VCy — Jason Choi (@mrjasonchoi) January 4, 2019 In response to this, one of Choi’s followers asked how much ETH had been spent on transactions fees in the place of ZRX tokens to which he replied: “too much...” With the 0x platform being one of the few projects in the crypto space with a sizeable user base, the number revealed by Digital Assets Research should concern all those who have bought into coins and token expecting them to be used uniquely on a given platform to pay for the service they are accessing. According to a Tweet from another crypto researcher known as Hasu, the Digital Asset Research data about the 0x blockchain is highly damning for much of the ERC-20 token economy, as well as those tokens existing on similar blockchain platforms: This gotta be the nail in the coffin for payment tokens. 0x is one of the few protocols with users to begin with, and now we have the data to back up what we long assumed: the market circumvents the token any way it can. https://t.co/iHlXi2Kbwx — Hasu (@hasufl) January 4, 2019 As part of a response to one of the replies to the above Tweet, Hasu stated: “I don’t see how forcing a token in there can ever benefit the consumer side.” All that said, some users were keen to remind the two mentioned crypto researchers that the purpose of the ZRX token is not only to pay for exchange fees. It also serves to power the platform’s governance model. However, since this is still under development, just how valuable this function can make the tokens remains to be seen. Also, whilst ZRX tokens do apparently serve a dual purpose, the same cannot be said for many of the less popular projects out there that also state that their designated tokens sold at ICO would be used exclusively with the platform in question.

Augur needs your eyeballs

A record number of prediction markets ended on New Years eve, and as a result there are about 140 markets in this week's dispute round. Dispute rounds are how Augur catches mistakes and keeps reporters honest in a decentralized way. After the results of a market have been reported, there is a one week period during which anyone can dispute those results. There is a good chance one or more of those 140 markets was reported incorrectly, but there are currently more markets than active users. That's where you come in: To dispute a result you will need REP tokens, which can be purchased on most token exchanges, or directly from Augur using 0x Instant (click on Account). You stake your REP on the outcome of your choice. If enough REP has been staked to fill the dispute bond, it gets pushed to the next round, during which the opposing sides have a chance to stake double that amount. One side wins the dispute when the other sides cannot fill their bonds, and the REP gets redistributed to the winning side. So, if the majority agrees with you, you earn a 50% return on the REP you staked on the correct outcome. If you have downloaded the Augur app from [https://www.augur.net/get-started/#download-links](https://www.augur.net/get-started/#download-links): connect your wallet, and go to Reporting->Dispute Or you can use the hosted instance here: [https://ipfs.augur.casino/ipfs/QmYznPLieFvWGNDrS839mQrGLuuWNxhSrg29TrXgog52ed/?ethereum\_node\_http=https%3a%2f%2feth-mainnet.alchemyapi.io%2fjsonrpc%2f7sE1TzCIRIQA3NJPD5wg7YRiVjhxuWAE&augur\_node=wss%3a%2f%2faugur-node.augur.casino#/reporting-dispute-markets](https://ipfs.augur.casino/ipfs/QmYznPLieFvWGNDrS839mQrGLuuWNxhSrg29TrXgog52ed/?ethereum_node_http=https%3a%2f%2feth-mainnet.alchemyapi.io%2fjsonrpc%2f7sE1TzCIRIQA3NJPD5wg7YRiVjhxuWAE&augur_node=wss%3a%2f%2faugur-node.augur.casino#/reporting-dispute-markets) ​ Potentially disputable things to look for: * Markets that ended before the results were known * Subjective markets * Markets where the results are difficult or impossible to find * Markets where the results differ depending on interpretation It is generally accepted that if any of the above apply, the market should be disputed as Invalid. Another helpful resource is [https://reporters.chat/](https://reporters.chat/) where folks can discuss why they reported / disputed the way that they did. Thanks, and happy Auguring. :)

Replay: co-founder and CEO of DDEX Tian Li to discusses the 0x fork and the Hydro Protocol

Last Friday, the team behind DDEX and the Hydro Protocol, announced that they would be forking the 0x protocol and releasing their own implementation. DDEX is the largest relayer in the 0x ecosystem by volume, and accounts for over 33% of the total volume of trades each month. This event is particularly worth paying attention to because it is one of the first times we are seeing a Layer 2 project having its token forked. After the DDEX team made their announcement, the 0x team shared a response to the fork. Will this be a significant challenge, mutually beneficial, or just a bunch of noise? We will try to determine by the end of this conference call. Replay here:

Cardano (ADA) is the Most Actively Developed Coin in 2018

According to data available on coincodecap.com, the 11th largest Cryptocurrency by market cap, Cardano (ADA), that was founded by Charles Hoskinson is the most developed cryptocurrency in the year 2018. Many within the crypto community might think that the performance of coins, could be tied to their developments, hence a lot of piques against Litecoin founder Charlie Lee and ethereum creator, Vitalik Buterin. Both founders have come out clean to show their plans and achievements in the course of last year for their respective projects. This data is for coins commit from Jan 2018 to Dec 2018. Cardano(ADA) that is presently trading at about $0.0427 and with a market capitalization of about $1.107 billion recorded over 45,000 commits in its code updates in the past 12 months which makes cardano the most actively developed cryptocurrency in the last 12 months. Augur has been the second most actively developed currency in the last 12 months with over 21,000 commits. Also, Argur(REP) and Ox(ZRX) that are presently on the 48th and 31st position in terms of coin market cap respectively took the second and third positions with 21,644 and 18,095 commits sequentially. According to CoinCodeCap developer, commits is a word used for all the changes and updates that had been made in a given project at a particular period. CoinCodeCap developer stated that: “A commit, or “revision”, is an individual change to a file (or set of files). It’s like when you save a file, except with Git, every time you save it creates a unique ID (aka the “SHA” or “hash”) that allows you to keep a record of what changes were made when and by who. Commits usually contain a commit message which is a brief description of what changes were made.” The ranking below shows the position and commits for the first five most developed coins in 2018. Tech Development —> Value creation — > Mass adoption —> Money According to Gaurav Agrawal of CoinMonks, the right path for a coin development should be the path above. Gaurav said that in a Medium post that: “Above is normal growth path for any industry but in terms of crypto this is flowing backward and this is problematic.” Bitcoin the first crypto in terms of market capitalization is in the 52nd position in terms of commits. Ethereum is in the 4th position with 15,617 commits. The post Cardano (ADA) is the Most Actively Developed Coin in 2018 appeared first on ZyCrypto.

Coinbase CEO Reviews Accomplishments in Q4 2018, Says “Can’t Wait to Do It All Again in 2019”

Brian Armstrong, the CEO of cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase revealed a note he sent to the Coinbase team, stating their achievements in Q4 2018. He summarized how Coinbase had added more people to its team, new features, new cryptocurrencies and more. The New Entrants to the Coinbase Ecosystem The company added several new people to its team this year, as noted by Armstrong: “As expected, this put some strain on communication, decision making, and even trust. We’re a largely new team that still needs to come together and gel, and this will be a major focus of 2019.” He said that Coinbase had a lot of success with everything they launched and then listed and described the company’s new products and features. In Q4 2018, Coinbase added crypto-to-crypto trading for users and added a news feature which helps customers stay up-to-date with the latest crypto developments. It also added a feature called Watchlist that allows users to customize their dashboard and stay updated about the coins they are interested in. Coinbase also integrated with PayPal, allowing users to withdraw funds to their PayPal accounts for free. Coinbase Pro added whitelisting and address book. Coinbase Earn was added which is a new way to earn crypto while learning about it. Coinbase listed USDC, the Circle-backed digital programmable dollar (stablecoin) and other cryptocurrencies like Zcash and multiple ERC20 tokens, including BAT, GNT, LOOM, MANA, ZIL, ZRX, and MKR. Coinbase custody was established which now supports 79% of crypto assets by market cap. Expanding Its Horizons Coinbase launched in six new jurisdictions including Iceland, Lithuania, and the Isle of Man. Improving its security, the exchange migrated $5 billion worth of cryptocurrency to its Generation Four cold storage infrastructure. In the fourth quarter, the company raised another $300 million from investors in a Series E funding round. Coinbase invested in several up and coming crypto projects including Spacemesh, Alchemy, Abacus, Nomics, Starkware, Staked.us and more. Armstrong noted that the team focused on scaling last year to meet market demands and better serve their customers. He concluded by saying: “We asked a lot of everyone on the team. I’m proud of how we rose to the occasion to meet the challenges and opportunities before us this year.” Coinbase CEO Reviews Accomplishments in Q4 2018, Says “Can’t Wait to Do It All Again in 2019” was originally found on Cryptocurrency News | Blockchain News | Bitcoin News | blokt.com.

Crypto Giant Coinbase Made Strides In Q4 2018, Even As Bitcoin (BTC) Plunged 40%

Although Coinbase has recently become a controversial company, especially as it began to add crypto assets left and right, the company has long had an unrelenting drive for innovation. Since setting up shop in 2012, the San Francisco-headquartered startup, headed by a former Airbnb employee with visions of grandeur, has quickly set the industry standard in a number of subsectors. The firm may have started as a consumer-centric exchange, which sported a simple (near-)one-click interface, but Coinbase has evolved far beyond its original premise now. And interestingly, even as digital assets like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC) — Coinbase’s lifeblood — continue to lose value, the firm has only doubled-down on its expansion and development efforts. Related Reading: Only Coinbase, Binance Have 300k+ Users, Fake Volume on Most Crypto Platforms Coinbase Outperformed The Bitcoin Sell-Off Recent Giving Pledge signee Brian Armstrong, the fervent, sometimes controversial chief of Coinbase, recently issued a note to his underlings — a swelling group of talent — accentuating the fact that the company has not only survived but thrived in the recent bearish downturn. The American firm, which now has offices around the globe, started Q4 of 2018 with a bang, securing $300 million in funding from Tiger Global, Y Combinator, A16Z, Polychain Cap, and a number of other crypto-friendly venture groups. This round valued Coinbase at a jaw-dropping $8 billion, making the firm arguably the most valuable company in the entirety of Bitcoin ecosystem. And since that $300 million cash boost, which was explained to be allocated towards global expansion efforts, institutional services, and applications for crypto, Coinbase has arguably been on the up-and-up. As explained in Armstrong’s letter, released to the public in an evident attempt at transparency, Coinbase launched a number of pertinent products, including support for Circle-backed USD Coin, a revamped version of Earn, PayPal withdrawals, and crypto-to-crypto trading, to only name a few products. The firm also added a dozen crypto assets to its platform, an evident sign of changing times, with notable additions including ZCash (ZEC), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Maker (MKR), and 0x (ZRX). In a podcast, vice-president Dan Romero explained that firm’s clientele has begun to clamor for crypto asset support, presumably catalyzing the recent listings. Along with adding the aforementioned tokens and products, Coinbase forayed into six new regions, opening the ground-breaking potential of crypto to millions more. The Coinbase chief also explained that his firm made a number of investments, into organizations such as Alchemy, Securitize, Starkware, Nomics, and Abacus. Closing the retrospective post, Armstrong made his excitement and gratitude more than apparent when he wrote: “I continue to be so impressed by the ability of this team to execute on aggressive timelines, all while solving problems that have never been solved before. This was a year of scaling Coinbase up to meet the demand of the market and efficiently executing to serve our customers.” Great Year Ahead For The Crypto Juggernaut Interestingly, the firm already seems to have prospects for a great 2019. As reported by NewsBTC earlier today, an apparent survey from Coinbase has polled users on the appeal of a subscription model, which would reduce “maker” and “taker” fees for Pro traders, while offering perks for premium members. If implemented, this program would be the first of its kind in the cryptosphere, and would likely propel the company’s trading platforms to new heights. Asiff Hirji, president of the fledgling company, recently hinted that 2019 will be a great year for institutional participation in cryptocurrencies. In an interview with CNBC, Hirji explained that Coinbase’s custodial service “has blown by internal goals,” as “hundred of institutions” have boarded onto the platform in recent memory. Seeing that Coinbase has been playing a role in that facet of this industry, it can be assumed that this influx of Wall Street hotshots will trickle down to the company’s growing roster of institutional products. Zeeshan Feroz, the chief at Coinbase’s U.K. branch, also expressed a similar positive outlook, but from a broader perspective. He said: “I think you can expect a more aggressive approach to us adding more countries in the coming months. Much of what we’re doing here is driven by customer needs and what we’re seeing in the market... I think if you look at last year, a lot of the focus was on people who bought crypto from an investment point of view and a lot of projects raised a ludicrous amount of money as a result of that.” Featured Image from Shutterstock The post Crypto Giant Coinbase Made Strides In Q4 2018, Even As Bitcoin (BTC) Plunged 40% appeared first on NewsBTC.

Daily Crypto Roundup 12/21/2018

Action filled today’s headlines as Coinbase launched a new crypto education program, Facebook continued its path toward crypto involvement, and U.S. officials filed to amend securities laws in favor of crypto. Upbit exchange was also indicted for market manipulation and bitcoin’s price held steady after this week’s bullish movement. Catch up on today’s action! Coinbase Launches Program To Educate New Crypto Users Coinbase recently launched a project called “Coinbase Earn” which looks to educate the public on cryptocurrencies, while rewarding them with tokens. The project is currently in the invite-only stage and rewards users in ZRX tokens for completing educational tasks relating to the 0x project. 0x is currently the only option in the program, but Coinbase hopes to add more in the future. Coinbase studies showed many people were hesitant to interact with assets they did not understand. The project aims to teach them about new cryptocurrencies while giving them a small amount of the asset to test out. Read on Crypto Insider Facebook Makes Significant Moves Towards Crypto Social media powerhouse Facebook recently showed continued interest in the blockchain space. David Marcus made quite the journey over the past year, as he joined the board of directors for Coinbase last December, in addition to keeping his position at Facebook. He then left Coinbase in August of this year, due to a stated conflict of interest. Coinbase has also recently filled several key positions in their blockchain department. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, hinted at this year’s blockchain development when he stated interest in the crypto space and its application back in January of this year.

Coinbase Rolls Out Rewards Program for Users Willing to Learn About Cryptocurrencies

Coinbase recently launched the 12 Days of Coinbase event as part of the Holiday Season. The event will provide daily announcements in line with the exchange’s plans to improve customer experience on the platform and to make cryptocurrencies available to everyone. On the 10th day of the event - December 19th - the exchange launched an earning program aimed at rewarding users for learning about cryptocurrencies. The program has been dubbed ‘Coinbase Earn’ by the exchange. About Coinbase Earn Although the program will first be available on an invite-only basis, it will allow users to earn crytocurrencies while learning about them in a simple and engaging way. Users will get to understand more about the specific digital asset’s utility and Coinbase will reward them with the same cryptocurrency to try it out. The exchange will first test out the program using the ERC20 token of Ox (TRX). The team at Coinbase went on to add that with time, they will add more educational content as well as the ability to earn other cryptocurrencies as more users gain access to the platform. Coinbase went on to explain why they decided to launch the rewards program. In a survey of Coinbase customers and non-customers alike, we found that one of the biggest barriers preventing people from exploring a new digital asset was a lack of knowledge about that asset. Many of the people we surveyed expressed a strong desire to begin learning about new and different crypto assets beyond Bitcoin, but didn’t know where to begin. Earning While Learning about ZRX With regards to learning about ZRX, Coinbase had this to say. We give verified, invited users a series of useful tasks to complete from anywhere to earn digital currency. For this first set of tasks, funding is coming from the 0x external development pool, with 100% of the funds going directly to users. In the future, we may experiment with other kinds of tasks from different types of senders, not necessarily always created by asset developers themselves. For example, there may be tasks paid in Bitcoin that aren’t sent by Satoshi Nakamoto! What are your thoughts on Coinbase’s plans for a rewards program for its customers who wish to learn about various cryptocurrencies? Please let us know int he comment section below.

Coinbase launches program to educate new crypto users

Coinbase recently announced their intention to help educate the public about cryptocurrency. Through the Coinbase Earn program, users will receive crypto assets to help them learn. Coinbase Earn In a blog release yesterday, Coinbase announced t the new program. The program aims to reward new crypto users by paying them small amounts of cryptocurrencies to complete educational tasks like videos and quiz questions. The idea is for users to understand more about an asset’s utility and its underlying technology, while getting a bit of the asset to try out. At the moment, the program only exists for ZRX tokens. Although Coinbase plans on branching out in the future. The program is also currently on an invite-only basis. But interested parties can still access the material for free, and join a waitlist to fully participate in the program in the future. Current public confusion Cryptocurrencies are confusing to people on the outskirts of the sector. Coinbase research found people to be largely hesitant toward assets they did not understand. However, the people surveyed did want to learn about cryptocurrencies other than bitcoin but did not know how to go about it. The Coinbase Earn program allows interested folks to learn about crypto assets while being able to tinker with them, applying their new-found knowledge. This first round of the program received ZRX funds for the program from the 0x Core Team, as stated on their own blog release yesterday. The 0x Core Team has allocated 1,600,000 ZRX tokens from our external development pool for the initiative. 100% of these tokens will be distributed to Coinbase Earn participants. Crypto Twitter’s response Crypto twitter had mixed feelings on the whole announcement. Notable bitcoin maximalist Jimmy Song looked at the event negatively, stating the 0x donation as a listing fee. In other words, @coinbase is now taking listing fees for their Coinbase Earn service. Even if they gave 100% of what they received to the users, it's still a listing fee as Coinbase gets a significant benefit from free distribution of tokens. https://t.co/6MRL0lxI6b — Jimmy Song (송재준) (@jimmysong) December 20, 2018 The Block writer Larry Cermak wrote about an interesting connection between Coinbase Earn and Earn.com, which the company purchased back in April of this year. A spokesperson for Coinbase told The Block that Coinbase will be scaling up Earn.com via Coinbase Earn, piece by piece. According to the spokesperson, ‘[t]he first piece is today. Beyond that, we don’t have specific plans to share at this time.’ Coinbase announced the launch of Coinbase Earn where users can earn small amounts of crypto for educating themselves on different assets. I wrote an article detailing https://t.co/IOPEiHrv3K's complicated history full of pivots and uncertainty.https://t.co/Tm15xWsCGQ — Larry Cermak (@lawmaster) December 19, 2018 Some members of Twitter expressed skepticism toward the new initiative, expecting the newly rebranded Earn.com to fail. https://t.co/52WOyIKgsq is the story of beating a dead horse and trying to make it look like all that money didn't go toward nothing, which it basically did. https://t.co/iERqkF9MEa — Amy Castor (@ahcastor) December 19, 2018 While other speculators worry Coinbase Earn could be a gateway for further scams.

Coinbase Aggressively Expanding, High Hopes For Crypto in 2019

Crypto exchanges do not get much bigger than Coinbase which has grown at a phenomenal rate over the past couple of years. The firm has not been deterred one bit by this year’s crypto rout and continues to aggressively expand into new markets and with new products. No Slowing Down into 2019 On Thursday the company said it had expanded into several new countries according to CNBC. Many of them are in Europe and recent new markets for the crypto firm include Iceland, Lithuania, Andorra, Gibraltar, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. Coinbase recently opened an office in Dublin amid fears of a negative outcome from Brexit negotiations. A number of these new destinations are pitching themselves as blockchain and crypto friendly for new startups to launch their products. Malta and Switzerland are already at the top of the crypto tree and Gibraltar is aiming to catch up with its domestic licensing process for blockchain technology firms. UK CEO of Coinbase, Zeeshan Feroz, said; “I think you can expect a more aggressive approach to us adding more countries in the coming months. Much of what we’re doing here is driven by customer needs and what we’re seeing in the market,” before adding “I think if you look at last year, a lot of the focus was on people who bought crypto from an investment point of view and a lot of projects raised a ludicrous amount of money as a result of that,” The expansion plans come right in the middle of a yearlong crypto rout which has seen markets tumble by over 80%, so Coinbase at least is clearly not worried. New Products and Incentives In addition to seeking new crypto friendly locations, Coinbase has also expanded its product line. The most recent offering has been a long awaited crypto-to-crypto trading option that most other exchanges already employ. Coinbase has been known for having some of the highest fees in the industry and these are amplified by inflated foreign exchange rates when dealing with fiat currencies. Direct crypto trading will not incur those fees, but there will be a spread between the two assets. In another initiative to get more people into crypto, Coinbase has offered to pay them to watch videos and take quizzes according to Fortune. This particular offering will be using the recently added ZRX token as the project had set aside 1.6 million of them to give away to Coinbase users. It is clear that there is no slowing down for the big exchanges. Coinbase is not alone with its expansion ambitions as Binance, Huobi and OKEx have also branched out into new markets and with new products. Big things are anticipated in 2019 for cryptocurrencies and the big boys are gearing up for it.

Interested parties can sign up now for Coinbase Earn and watch educational videos about the 0x (ZRX) protocol, earning $1 worth of 0x for each video watched. (JF)

Has Coinbase Jumped The Shark?

Earlier this year, cryptocurrency media and fortune tellers made hay by predicting which assets would get score a spot on a big trading platform, and why. It was big news, and some coins lived or died on a big listing. Since then, enthusiasm for new listings seems to have diminished, even as bullish sentiment returned to the market. Earlier this week, the market barely noticed as Coinbase added four new digital assets, including the Maker/DAI pairing and Zilliqa. CoinDesk didn’t even bother mentioning the new appearances, after devoting several articles each to the ETC/ BAT gossip. The new assets were day nine of the “Twelve Days of Coinbase,” a festive promotion in which the San Francisco-based exchange is attempting to revive the market with holiday cheer. “Four tradeable ERC-20 assets” is a much more thoughtful gift than Nine Ladies Dancing, but the market looked them in the mouth anyway. The other days of Coinbase came with Bitcoin and Zcash donations to the needy, new exchange functions and educational videos on cryptocurrency. None of them are things to complain about, but all the same, the market seems to be indifferent. Thanks, Coinbase, but we forgot to get you anything. The Shrinking Coinbase Effect We’ve previously reported on the Binance effect, whereby minor coins realize unexpected gains by being listed on one of the most reputable exchanges. But that was nothing compared to the hype surrounding a new Coinbase listing. One year ago, when Bitcoin Cash appeared like an unexpected present beneath Brian Armstrong’s tree, prices on Coinbase Pro pumped up to over $9000 per BCH—a rise so sudden that it led many hodlers to accuse the exchange of intentionally manipulating the price in order to profit, and causing Bitcoin Cash values to cross 4,000 in other markets. A similar effect occurred a few months later— when Coinbase announced that it would list Ethereum Classic, the price of the ETC token briefly jumped 45% while also allowing the older dApp platform to stave off obsolescence for another four months. The pump surrounding the actual listing was much smaller. ZRX/USD. Via CryptoCompare. Since then, each successive listing was accompanied by a smaller, and briefer, gain in value. ZRX gained 23% between the announcement and start of trading, but the Basic Attention Token only gained 17%, and the pump was over within five days. By the time Coinbase got around to Golem and Zilliqa, the effect could be measured in hours rather than days. ZIL/USD. Via Cryptocompare Part of that may be intentional, since the exchange has an interest in not thumbing the scales in cryptocurrency trades. But it also seems likely that Coinbase-which used to allow access to only the most reputable digital assets - is no longer guarding the gates quite so diligently. Two More Days of Coinbase Christmas That said, there are still two unopened doors in the advent calendar, and Brian Armstrong may yet throw us a stunner. Assuming Santa saved the best gifts for last, we may yet be in for a surprise. The two logical guesses for the next two days would be new listings for Stellar and/or Cardano, as Coinbase has been hinting since last Spring. Although neither asset sticks to the letter of Coinbase’s Digital Asset Framework, they both have sufficiently large market caps to bring quite a bit of Christmas cheer. Alternatively, they could also list an unexpected asset. Last Christmas, XRP prices spiked after online rumors of an impending listing. Those rumors were proved wrong, and then more wrong, over the past year. A surprise XRP listing, after a year of snubbing, would be nothing short of a Festivus Miracle. The author is invested XRP, ADA and XLM, as well as BTC, which are mentioned in this article. Join the conversation on Telegram and Twitter!

Coinbase Launches Coinbase Earn in Invite-only Mode

As part of their mission to create an open financial system, Coinbase today launched Coinbase Earn. This initiative by the exchange allows users to learn about cryptocurrencies while earning them as well. The program was launched in invite-only mode today. The announcement was part of the 12 Days of Coinbase series. Making Blockchain More Accessible Coinbase noted that blockchain technology would need to be made more accessible to create an open financial system. Coinbase Earn will allow users to participate in the industry more. In the announcement Coinbase stated: “Coinbase Earn allows users to earn cryptocurrencies while learning about them in a simple and engaging way. The idea is for users to understand more about an asset’s utility and its underlying technology while getting a bit of the asset to try out.” In order to manage demand, the program will launch in invite-only mode and will focus only on 0x Protocol (ZRX).

Users selected for the program will receive an invite for Coinbase Earn by email. These users will be able to earn ZRX by taking short video lessons and quizzes. The Coinbase Earn educational content is free for all and can be viewed by users who have not been sent an invite yet. Users can also sign up on the waitlist to be notified of more educational tasks when they become available. The initiative comes after a survey of Coinbase customers and non-customers regarding the biggest barriers that prevent people from exploring new assets. The survey also found that people have a strong desire to learn about digital assets other than Bitcoin but didn’t know how to get started. All the tasks on Coinbase Earn, therefore, will revolve around asset education. Moreover, the initiative provides people a third alternative for earning cryptocurrencies apart from mining and buying. The funding for this initial phase of the program comes from the 0x external development pool, and 100% of funds are given to users. The 12 Days of Coinbase Timeline Day 1- WeGift e-Cards: Users can now spend their crypto balances to buy e-gift cards from WeGift which can be redeemed on Uber, Nike, GAP, and more.

The Daily: Coinbase to Pay Users for Learning, Okex Launches Instant Messaging Service

In today’s edition of The Daily we feature a number of recent developments by popular cryptocurrency exchanges. These include an educational platform by Coinbase, a communication tool for OTC traders from Okex, an important ticker update by Coinex, and an investment by ZB.com. Also Read: Atari Partners Decentralized Gaming Company, Tagomi Goes Live Learn and Earn Coinbase has announced a new initiative meant to incentive people to learn more about cryptocurrencies. The Coinbase Earn educational platform will reward users with tokens for completing various tasks such as watching videos and taking quizzes on crypto-related content. The service has launched in invite-only mode with just a single asset for now, but Coinbase promises that over time it will add more options. Users who received an invite by email can already go to the ZRX page to earn small amounts of cryptocurrency. Anyone else can view the educational content on the page for free, as well as sign up to a waiting list to be notified as more educational tasks are available. “We think Coinbase Earn could help open up blockchain access to a new group of users: people who are curious about digital assets, but who’d like to try them out for free just like a normal web or mobile app. By serving that need, we hope to make blockchain more accessible in the process,” the team commented. The exchange also revealed that for the first set of tasks, funding is unsurprisingly coming from the 0x external development pool. Okex Messenger Okex, the Malta-based cryptocurrency exchange supporting fiat currencies such as Vietnamese Dong and Chinese Yuan, has announced it’s launched an instant messaging service. Developed for its over-the-counter trading (OTC) platform, the new feature allows users to establish direct communications between buyers and sellers. The instant messaging service allows traders to send and receive messages in real-time with their counter-party on Okex’s website and mobile applications. The apps are available for both the iOS and Android operating systems, and the developers say that by enabling push notifications, traders will be alerted immediately through their mobile devices once they receive any updates. Coinex Updates BSV Ticker Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinex has changed its Bitcoin SV ticker from “BCHSV” to “BSV”, announcing that from now on “BCHSV” will no longer represent the Bitcoin SV token on the platform. Founded in December 2017, the company counts mining giant Bitmain among its investors. With this move, the exchange reaffirms that it expects users to understand that BSV is no longer related to Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in any way following the recent hard fork. Coinex was among the very first exchanges that opened withdrawals for both BCH and BSV following the fork, providing an easy way for holders to split the two cryptocurrencies. ZB.com Partners Gaming Project Hong Kong-headquartered cryptocurrency exchange ZB.com has recently announced an expansion into the European Union with the launch of the Malta-regulated ZBX.com. To make a concerted effort to attract new Western users, the company has announced it is investing into select crypto projects, the first being Clovr. Founded by a team of executives and developers with experience from King.com, Uber and Y Combinator, Clovr has developed an esports token to tap the market of 3.5 million real-money players engaged with licensed online casinos. “We believe there is a large upside for projects with access to sizeable daily active user bases,” noted ZB.com co-founder Jimmy Zhao. “User adoption is crucial to the long-term value creation of cryptocurrencies. We think CLOVR could be the most used crypto of 2019 since their tokens can be purchased by an existing large and engaged esports and iGaming online user base.” Ledger Adopts Crypto.com Pay Ledger, the Paris-headquartered hardware wallet manufacturer, has announced the signing of a deal to adopt a new cryptocurrency payment solution, Crypto.com Pay. Once the service is implemented onto Ledger’s online store, customers will have the option to purchase products at checkout by opening the Crypto.com wallet and card app, scanning a QR code, and selecting the desired cryptocurrency to be spent. Éric Larchevêque, CEO of Ledger, said: “Our customers understand the everyday utility of cryptocurrency, and as a leading cryptocurrency asset hardware wallet provider, it is a natural step for us to provide a cryptocurrency payment option. We support what Crypto.com is doing to lead the industry forward with its vision of cryptocurrency in every wallet. We feel this payment option is just what our customers are seeking.” What do you think about today’s news tidbits? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. Images courtesy of Shutterstock.

Coinbase launches ‘Coinbase Earn’ to solve cryptocurrency knowledge gap; 0x added as first learning asset

Coinbase, the world’s largest cryptocurrency in terms of users, has created ripples in the crypto-space again after launching the Coinbase Earn. The feature, which is still in the ‘invite-only’ mode, has been in the works for a long time, with the main aim of improving awareness of cryptocurrencies in the cryptosphere. The first entrant in the Earn feature is 0x, the title page mentioning, “Learn 0x. Earn 0x”. Balaji Srinivasan, the CTO of Coinbase, spoke about the new feature in a video released by the cryptocurrency exchange. Srinivasan stated that the initial way that people got Bitcoin was by mining and post-2013, it has been through buying the cryptocurrencies. The Coinbase official opined that from 2018 to 2023, individuals will be earning and learning as they are processes that can go hand-in-hand. He added that Coinbase has partnered with asset issuers who will create ‘great quality content’ to help users learn about the crypto-verse. The Coinbase blog has stated: “Coinbase Earn allows users to earn cryptocurrencies while learning about them in a simple and engaging way. The idea is for users to understand more about an asset’s utility and its underlying technology while getting a bit of the asset to try out.” The blog further said: “To manage demand, we’re launching Coinbase Earn today in an invite-only mode with a single asset: ZRX. Over time, we plan to add more educational content as well as the ability to earn other cryptocurrencies.” Coinbase believes that the Earn feature solves a lot of practical issues required to turn this theory into practice. The partnership with 0x has also resulted in the funding coming in from the ‘0x external development pool’, with the company revealing that all of money collected will be given to the users. The initiative also gives users the chance to earn small amounts of cryptocurrencies by completing projects like video lessons and quizzes. The officials at the company have claimed that the project was started due to lack of awareness being the biggest barrier for customers while buying cryptocurrencies. The Brian Armstrong-led company also said: “We think Coinbase Earn could help open up blockchain access to a new group of users: people who are curious about digital assets, but who’d like to try them out for free just like a normal web or mobile app. By serving that need, we hope to make blockchain more accessible in the process.” The post Coinbase launches ‘Coinbase Earn’ to solve cryptocurrency knowledge gap; 0x added as first learning asset appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Coinbase Pro Lists Dai, Golem, Maker, and Zilliqa for Select Jurisdictions

US-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase today announced that it would be listing four new Ethereum tokens to its Coinbase Pro platform. The tokens are Dai (DAI), Golem (GNT), Maker (MKR) and Zilliqa (ZIL). The exchange is working on its previous announcement for bringing more ERC20 technical standard assets to the platform. Golem is not an ERC20 token but is Ethereum-based. Where Will the Tokens Be Available? The tokens will be available to customers of Coinbase Pro but only in select jurisdictions. Golem and Dai will be available for Coinbase Pro users in the UK, the EU, Canada, Australia, and Singapore. US users, except those in New York, will also get to trade in these coins. Maker and Zilliqa will not be available in the US but will be available for traders in Singapore, Canada, Australia, the EU, and the UK. The exchange started accepting deposits in all four coins around 11:45 am PT on December 18. Deposits will be accepted for 12 hours before trading starts. Then the exchange will enable limit orders. When Coinbase Pro achieves sufficient liquidity for these tokens, full trading will be allowed. Coinbase announced earlier this year that it would support many ERC20 tokens to its platform. Coinbase has already launched 0x (ZRX) and Basic Attention Token (BAT) and added a new stablecoin USDC as well. Coinbase also supported Loom Network (LOOM), Decentraland (MANA), districtox (DN) and Civic (CVC) on its platform recently. Full Token Functionality Not Accessible In a blog post announcing the new listings, Coinbase wrote that it would not provide smart contract functionality immediately to the users. It said: “Each of these tokens has associated functionality, some of which may be in beta. Moreover, each token’s associated functionality is not currently directly accessible via the Coinbase Pro platform.” Golem, for example, connects users to a distributed compute farm which cannot be accessed via Coinbase. Therefore, users who want to participate in the distinctive functionalities of these coins need to move them to a local wallet. Coinbase will only facilitate their buying, selling and storing. The exchange also said that it could bring more digital assets and ERC20 tokens to the platform. It said that adding ERC20 tokens first is relatively simple for them as these assets can easily be integrated into their existing infrastructure. The 12 Days of Coinbase Timeline Day 1- WeGift e-Cards: Users can now spend their crypto balances to buy e-gift cards from WeGift which can be redeemed on Uber, Nike, GAP, and more.

Crypto Arbitrage Today: AE, ZRX, ICX, EOS, XMR, BTG

Not a day goes by in the cryptocurrency without some alternative money-making methods rearing their head. Arbitrage opportunities, while requiring a bit of manual labor, are often one of the better ways to make money in this industry at all times. The following market opportunities are worth exploring for quick profits. Aeternity (Sistemkoin / Gate) It does not happen all that often some of the lesser-known altcoins make for good arbitrage opportunities. Every now and then, things change in this rather unusual industry, which makes for healthy profit opportunities. The current AE price on Sistemkoin is lower compared to Gate.io, which lets users pocket an 8.5% profit for moving coins between exchanges. ZRX (Poloniex / Gate) Whereas most of the arbitrage opportunities over the past few days involved HitBTC, it seems Gate is also making a name for itself once again. For fans of 0x, or ZRX, there is a healthy price spread between Poloniex and Gate. Exploring this gap can yield an easy profit of up to 8.8%. As is usually the case with smaller altcoins and exchanges, there may not be much liquidity to take advantage of. ICX (Binance / Gate) For those traders and speculators looking to take advantage of smaller markets, ICX is another option worth exploring. This altcoin’s price on Binance is slightly lower than Gate’s, although the 0.8% profit may not necessarily be that appealing to some traders. Even so, all options need to be explored in this industry, as one never knows if and when new opportunities will arise. Monero (Bittrex / Kraken / HitBTC) When Monero-related arbitrage opportunities present themselves, the overall profit is usually rather modest. Today, it seems that the situation is a bit different. Buying XMR on Bittrex or Kraken lets users flip the coins on either Bitfinex or HitBTC for profits of up to 3%. The average gain is closer to 2.3%, but it is still a rather juicy opportunity to look into. Bitcoin Gold (Koineks / Cex / Bitfinex) There are a few interesting price spreads where Bitcoin Gold is concerned. More specifically, one option is to buy BTG on either Koineks or CEX and sell it on Bitfinex for a profit of 1.95% up to 4.1%. Buying from the same exchanges and selling on HitBTC is also viable, for a profit ranging from 0.86% to 3.05%. Bitcoin Gold price gaps are becoming more apparent in recent days, which is always interesting to keep an eye on. EOS (Binance / KuCoin / HitBTC) Every time there is an arbitrage opportunity involving EOS, the profits are usually more than acceptable. For today, buying EOS on either Binance or KuCoin and selling it on HitBTC is an option to keep a close eye on. There is a profit of 2.55% waiting to be scored from exploring these options, as EOS is one of the more liquid markets available today. Information provided by Arbing Tool.

Conference Call on the 0x Fork and the Hydro Protocol with DDEX

Join Global Coin Research editor-in-chief Joyce Yang and Tian Li, co-founder and CEO of DDEX, to discuss the 0x fork and the Hydro Protocol.Last Friday, the team behind DDEX and the Hydro Protocol, announced that they would be forking the 0x protocol and releasing their own implementation. DDEX is the largest relayer in the 0x ecosystem by volume, and accounts for over 33% of the total volume of trades each month. This event is particularly worth paying attention to because it is one of the first times we are seeing a Layer 2 project having its token forked. After the DDEX team made their announcement, the 0x team shared a response to the fork. Will this be a significant challenge, mutually beneficial, or just a bunch of noise? We will try to determine by the end of this conference call.

Binance CEO CZ completely debunks rumors suggesting a heated competition against Coinbase

The CEO of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange has declared a “competition-free” atmosphere between itself and its perceived rival Coinbase. When crypto trader alias The Crypto Dog requested that traders choose an alignment, suggesting that both exchanges are the topmost competition in the business of cryptocurrency exchange, CZ was quick to counter the notion and bury all forms of rivalry. In a tweet that has garnered over 300 likes, 40 retweets and a truckload of comments, The crypto dog said; “the battle for $crypto is set between @binance and @coinbase Who do you align with? Choose carefully.” Upon seeing the tweet, CZ responded in a manner that conveyed his intentions for Binance as more than just a competitive platform, hinting that the market is still in its infancy and although both exchanges are built on very different strategies, the market will best function with each exchange actively applying their different expertise, despite their shortcomings. He tweeted, saying ; “Doesn’t have to be a competition. Market is still small. We are so far away from saturation point. While we have some overlaps, we are different on: strategy/product/geography/even tweeting style. Brian and I chat from time to time, on growing the industry together, like USDC.” Meanwhile, a quick look at The Crypto Dog’s tweet shows that both exchanges seemed to have almost an equal support rate as commenters highlighted the different reasons why both exchanges were preferable for their individual needs. One user was quick to point that Coinbase is solely focused on ‘shilling coins’ it has a stake in. This user’s response is one amongst a thousand others who believe that Coinbase ’s announcement to list 31 new altcoins is yet another move that will be at the detriment of traders, seeing that most of the aforementioned cryptocurrencies are still underdogs, they may be a great risk for buying and selling. Despite this, the exchange had revealed that its aim is geared towards diversification. In the same fashion, the exchange has recently launched it’s newest crypto to crypto trading feature that will enable traders to exchange BTC, ETH, ETC, LTC, ZRX and BCH coins for either of the listed coins.

Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH/USD Solid, adds $3.39 Billion in Three Days

Latest Ethereum News The crypto winter might be coming to an end and after 11 months of deep frost, it’s a scramble for honors. And it’s not about individual coins recouping their losses and realigning as they post massive gains in the last 24 hours, exchanges are doing their best to improve user experience. CoinBase, one of the world’s largest and conservative crypto exchange is rolling out goodies for users. As a “crypto first” exchange, the platform is releasing a new feature, Convert. Read: Cryptocurrency Regulations: Hong Kong Considers Stricter Laws for the Industry This tool allows platform users to convert from one coin to another without using third party applications as ShapeShift or Changelly. Support is available for Bitcoin, Ethereum and four other coins. But as a for-profit company, CoinBase will charge one percent for every conversion. However, depending on prevailing market conditions, fees can vary. Starting today, you can convert one crypto to another on Coinbase. Conversions are available between Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), 0x (ZRX), or Bitcoin Cash (BCH). It's Day 8 of 12 Days of Coinbase.

Even though data was inconclusive on whether these coins found their way to exchanges, we can only speculate that this activity meant liquidation. Also Read: CoinBase Opens Up To Altcoins, Launches Crypto-To-Crypto Trading Kyber Network spent 67,290 ETHs from mid-November but their wallets still hold 5,560 ETHs after raising $50 during their successful ICO. Other noteworthy sellers during this bear freeze include Aragon, SingularDTV as well as Status. ETH/USD Price Analysis At spot prices, ETH is up 4.4 percent against the USD and $7 away from the all-important resistance level. From previous ETH/USD trade plan, sellers are technically in charge unless there are solid breaks above $100. This is a round number and a psychological level that could propel ETH above $130 and even $160 cancelling the bear breakout pattern of Dec 6. Trend and Candlestick Formation: Bearish, Breakout Pattern The path of least resistance is southwards and the perpendicular falls from $160 cement our trend preview. But there is hope for bulls if and only if there are high-volume close above $100. As reiterated above, this expansion would cancel the minor bear breakout pattern of Dec 6 as bulls find the necessary momentum to rally towards $160. This is another important resistance level and previous support of Oct-Nov 2018. Volumes: Increasing, Bullish Though ETH/USD is range bound and oscillating within a tight $17 range with floors at $83, gains above $100 could ignite buyers aiming at $160. But this is subject to the level of market participation. Ideally, the breakout above $100 should be accompanied by above-average volumes exceeding Dec 7, 1900 HRs bar—321k versus 179k. If that is the case and recent lower lows act as a catapult for the next wave of higher highs, then our ETH/USD trade plan will be as follows: Buy: $100, $130 Stop: $90, $110 Targets: $130, $160, $250 All Charts Courtesy of Trading View This is not Investment Advice.

Coinbase Adds Crypto-to-Crypto Trading (But There are Small Letters)

TL;DR Coinbase’s new holiday program called “The 12 Days of Coinbase” brought interesting new features, including crypto-to-crypto trading. While the exchange made it seem like the trading is fee-free, this might not be the case according to their Fees section. The actual fee is only 1%, and it is cheaper than making two separate transactions, but it is also several times larger than the fee for ETH/BTC trading pair on Coinbase Pro (GDAX). One of the most significant events in the crypto space right now is Coinbase’s introduction of a new crypto-to-crypto trading program, which allows users to convert one cryptocurrency to another within Coinbase’s exchange. The new feature came as part of the exchange’s “12 Days of Coinbase” program, which coincidentally came just before the holiday season of 2018. It is currently day 8 of the program, and Coinbase has allowed conversions between Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and 0x (ZRX). As part of their announcement, Coinbase also stated that conversions are instant and that they can be performed at a much lower cost than if done in two separate transactions. While this is all true, there is a catch to the process, something that Coinbase seemingly forgot to mention. What’s the catch? Coinbase also posted a video as part of their blog post, demonstrating how transactions can be performed. In the video, transactions appear to have no fees attached to them, which is a praiseworthy move. However, it is not entirely true. Deep within Coinbase’s Fees section, there is a mention of a hidden fee in the 1% spread that users charge. While this is a very small fee, and it is even cheaper than the fee for selling Bitcoin (1.5%) or the fee attached to buying Ethereum (also 1.5%) via Coinbase’s broker service, it is still there, and it still counts. It should also be noted that the fee is as much as four times more expensive as a market order for the ETH/BTC trading pair on GDAX or Coinbase Pro. The community reaction The hidden fee is hardly talked about at this moment, which is an indicator that not many within Coinbase’s customers are aware of it. However, it also appears that the exchange’s efforts to make trading more interesting for its users may have had less effect on some of them. Some Coinbase customers took the changes as no big deal, stating that every other exchange out there already provides similar features as part of their everyday operations. Some have even gone as far as to criticize Coinbase for acting like they are giving groundbreaking features. Another burning question is whether or not the second largest coin by market cap, XRP, will end up being listed on the exchange. While Coinbase has always been rather picky when it comes to listing coins, they did promise additional assets shortly, with XRP being one of the potential candidates for the listing. For now, there are no signs that XRP will be adopted, as Coinbase tends to avoid controversial coins, especially when they are involved in multiple lawsuits. However, considering that many other exchanges already added XRP without any negative consequences, it is entirely possible that Coinbase might decide to make such a move.
