SharesPost Launches ERC-20 Token Index

You’ve heard of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ Composite and the S&P 500. There are also crypto indices, like those by Coinbase and Galaxy Digital. And now there’s one more. On Thursday, SharesPost launched the SharesPost Token Index to track the growth and maturity of ERC-20 token market. According to the San Francisco-based financial services company, the index is representative of the broad blockchain sector and includes credible projects whose digital tokens have defined utility. Among the cryptos included are Binance (BNB), OmiseGO (OMG), Ox (ZRX), Zilliqa (ZIL), Aeternity (AE), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Pundi X (NPXS), Holo (HOT), Augur (REP), Populous (PPT), WaltonChain (WTC), IOST (IOST), aelf (ELF), Bancor (BNT) and Loopring (LRC). These blockchain projects are ranked at least No. 89 (Bancor) on CoinMarketCap, while Binance Coin is the highest-ranked token at No. 14 with $1.26 billion in market capitalization. The firm’s Token Index gives long-term investors the ability to view in real-time and on daily basis at how a composite of credible blockchain projects are performing against Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). Its purpose is to inform investor decisions. Since July the index has outperformed Ethereum and underperformed Bitcoin. And over the past 12 months (since October 2017), the index of ERC-20 tokens has grown 17 percent. During the same period, Ethereum has dropped 17 percent while Bitcoin has increased by 59 percent. “We saw a need to provide a meaningful measure of token performance to help inform investor decisions and make the market more comprehensible for everyday people,” said CEO Gregory Brogger in Oct. 25 statement. Not all tokens are treated equally. The index is calculated using a market cap-weighted methodology that uses factors such as circulating supply, market cap, trading volume, trading history and token price to reflect the maturity of the market. The current weighting consists of 31.93% Binance Coin, 12.55% OmiseGO, 10.24% Ox, and 7.33% Zilliqa as four largest ERC-20 tokens that constitute the SharesPost Token Index. Binance Coin (BNB) is the digital coin of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, in terms of trading volume. At $9.80 it’s down 60% from its all-time high of $24.50 in January. The second-largest project by market cap, OmiseGO, provides decentralized financial solutions across borders. Observers say that blockchain tech is unlocking the potential of the financial sector. “Blockchain technology has completely redefined the idea of a traditional transaction,” Marshall Hayner, CEO of Metal, told Crypto Briefing. “Financial banking, credit card systems, and investment portfolios are all so integral to our society, but completely intimidating to the average consumer .... Blockchain as a framework, which does not warrant a third-party, has unlocked potential for an entirely new type of banking, and in turn, has the ability to strengthen us as a society.” At $6,480 Bitcoin is down 68% this year from its all-time high of nearly $20,000 in January. At $204 Ethereum is down 85% from its all-time high of nearly $1,400 in January. The $209 billion cryptocurrency market is down 75% from its all-time high of nearly $830 billion in market capitalization. The author holds Bitcoin which is mentioned in this article.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: A New Brave Browser Boosts BAT

FOMO Moments Another flat Saturday as markets are stagnant; Only BAT and DGTX heading higher. The weekend has brought no joy to crypto markets which have remained immobile for the past few days. The slow downward slide seems to have halted just below $210 billion market capitalization where things remain for another day. Bitcoin is at the exact same place it was on Friday, $6,480 and there is no sign of a breakout just yet. A similar story is being played out in the Ethereum camp during Asian trading this morning. ETH is immobile again today at around $204. Alcoins are nearly all in the green but gains are so small they are hardly worth mentioning. The biggest movement in the top ten is Stellar which has inched up 2.2% to $0.244 this morning. The rest are static with small upwards movement of around one percent on the day. The top twenty is a little more mixed with more red creeping in. Zcash is also up 2.2% trading at $120 right now but the rest have moved less than a percentage point in either direction. Interest in altcoins is at rock bottom this month. Today’s big pump is BAT which has jumped 16% to $0.240 on the day. A new Brave browser release with BAT integrated for tipping websites was launched a couple of days ago which is driving momentum now. Trade volume has quadrupled from $6 to $24 million, over 60% of which is on Binance. New Brave desktop browser available for download at https://t.co/4wVWi8TElt. This latest milestone on our way to 1.0 is Chromium-based, has 22% faster load time than our previous Muon-based version, & unveils Brave Rewards beta (previously Brave Payments). https://t.co/Zppx5mUZzN pic.twitter.com/RZ5tLm9QDr — Brave Software (@brave) October 18, 2018 Basic Attention Token has made 33% since this time last Saturday and is also up over 50% on the month. Digitex Futures is also in pump mode, adding 15% to its price levels over the past 24 hours and Aeternity is looking strong with a 10% gain. Getting the red end of the digital stick is Polymath, as yesterday’s pump predictably dumps today. POLY has dropped 11% of its previous gains in this tired pattern of ups and downs. Komodo is also shedding some today with a 7% decline. Total crypto market capitalization has not moved since Friday morning and is still at $208 billion. The daily lows are getting shallower though so it could get back over $210 billion during Euro and US trading today. Since last weekend markets have climbed 3.5% but they are still very flat.

Bitcoin Sheds 5 Percent Triggering a $14 Billion Market Dump

As at 01.09 UTC, Bitcoin began shedding some of its recent gains to trade below $6550. Within half an hour, it had dropped by an additional $244 to trade at $6,305. In the past 24 hours, it lost 5% triggering a cascading effect of price drops in the cryptocurrency and equity markets. Most of the top 100 coins followed suit, crashing spectacularly. Ethereum plunged by 9% to trade at $206. Bitcoin Cash dropped 11% while XRP lost 9.7% to change hands at $0.428. IOTA, TRX, and NEM lost more than 9%. The total market cap is just above $200 billion having dumped $14 billion. Aeternity is the only coin that had defied the drop. It had gained 7.7% to trade at $0.19. (KE)

Joe Crypto: Is Bitcoin Holding Us All Back?

It’s another muggy, close and humid day on the market as the pressure continues to build, but the crypto world is being physically restrained right now as Bitcoin wrestles with resistance points ranging from $6,500 to $7,000. Until Bitcoin conquers these demons, most of the market will stay mired in minimal gains and losses. From $219.31 billion at 3PM EST yesterday to $217.77 billion today, the market was basically treading water. That leaves us looking for a few standout stars. The encouraging part is that the real chargers of the moment tend to have real news, developments and technical achievements driving their coin price. So let’s take this as positive news, rather than staring blankly at flat charts. Loom Network Bears Fruit The big winner today was an altcoin in the relative depths of the Top 100. Loom Network didn’t bother with the white papers and the theory, it simply delivered a dApp scaling solution for Ethereum. A simple update on September 14th, a Medium post detailing the company’s Q3 roadmap, has put the company back in the news and the coin has made stealthy gains all month before taking off today. A month ago the market cap was at a low point of $38.34 million. Now it sits at $90.86 million. It has been dubbed the ‘EOS of Ethereum’ and its Delegated Proof-of-Stake (dPoS) consensus means it has potential to become an Ethereum equivalent to Rootstock. Loom Network is tightly focused on video games and gambling on the blockchain with a sidechain arrangement. The company took the Loom Unity SDK on tour and gave developers a chance for a hands-on meeting. Games developers are starting to see what the blockchain can do for them and Loom Network has positioned itself in a lucrative space. In the last month, it has been in the press and is increasingly being talked of as the gambling blockchain. If it can secure even a small slice of that $51.96 billion industry, Loom Network’s current 78th place on CoinMarketCap and $83.96 million market cap will be a distant memory before long. Aeternity One For The Ages? Higher up the charts in 32nd place, Aeternity bucked the market trend and added 16.91% to its token price. Last week’s deal with LimeChain and the recent link-up with cryptocurrency exchange DSTOQ are just two of the developments that sent Aeternity on a charge this last week, reaching a market cap of $294.76 million. Hailing from the tiny European nation of Liechtenstein, it’s a blockchain with a lot of similarities to Ethereum. Yanislav Malahov played a part in Ethereum and he’s the main man behind this scalable smart contracts platform. Oracles help modify and track smart contracts, and the wider world is starting to buy in to the idea. In the last month, the coin has made steady upward progress in a turbulent market. So, it could be one to watch for the long term. Eternal Plays The Long Game Eternal had a good day in the office, too, hitting a 12.03% increase over the last 24 hours while the big guns all chalked up losses. Eternal jumped more than 640% in a single week back in August and this is relatively small in comparison. But it’s all progress. Pundi X made the first blockchain phone call and its coin price responded with a 9.98% rise to $0.0017 and the market cap hit $212.43 million. At the XBlockchain Summit in Bali, Pundi X showed the blockchain communications technology in full effect, with the first phone call on a device which needs no centralized carrier. This is big news, and if the tech works then a 10% boost in the coin price will be the warm-up. Digitex Futures Gears Up To Go Live Right down in 98th place, Digitex Futures had a day to remember with an 11.57% boost in its token price. It’s aiming for commission free trades on Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum futures, and its tech goes live in Q4. But the buzz is building and Digitex Futures is turning into an outside bet. The biggest loser of the day was Maker, but that coin has been on a charge for so long that we won’t read too much into today’s slip of 12.51%. It’s more of a correction, while Bytecoin’s 5% loss was actually an improvement on yesterday, when Binance announced it would delist the coin. Static at the Top The biggest concern is the top of the table, where only three of the top 20 coins increased in value over the last 24 hours. Even they only managed fractions of a per cent and they make up the vast majority of the cryptocurrency market. Really, we’re stuck watching Bitcoin as it goes through an existential crisis and decides just where it belongs in the world. If it can puncture these resistance points and break $7,000, then the market might look like a very different place. The author is not invested in any digital currency.

Aeternity Price Aims for $1.25 as Traders Explore Altcoins for Profits

It is evident the current cryptocurrency momentum will make this Wednesday anything but pleasant to enjoy. More specifically, there is so much red across the charts, it becomes easy to overlook the coins going in the green. One of those coins is Aeternity, a cryptocurrency which many people tend to overlook. Aeternity Price is on a Tear Even though Bitcoin’s negative price momentum usually drags all altcoins with it, Aeternity shows things can be done differently. This particular altcoin notes some of the strongest gains in the top 100, despite not being a low-cap altcoin by any means. With its total valuation of nearly $286m, Aeternity has grown quietly behind the scenes without attracting a lot of attention. That situation might come to change fairly soon, especially given these current changes. The Aeternity price is up by over 12% in the past 24 hours, courtesy of 14% gains over both Bitcoin and Ethereum. If these trends keeps up, things will get very interesting for AE holders moving forward. All of this is achieved with $15.4m in trading volume, which primarily stems from Gate.io and Binance at this time. A very interesting market to keep an eye on, for obvious reasons. Finding the exact reason for this Aeternity price rise is not all that easy. Although there is some excitement regarding the video recorded during the BlackSeaChain conference of 2018, it might not necessarily warrant this AE price increase. At the same time, it also shows the project’s team is quite intent on ensuring the word gets out about Aeternity, which is always a smart idea. ¿Ya descubriste la serie de videos #BlackSeaChain2018 de @Quanterall? Philipp Klein y Ray Jacobs de @apeunit muestran cómo #aeternity está tratando de hacer que la experiencia del usuario de sus #aepps sea lo más perfecta posible. Mira el video aquí: https://t.co/oA7IZ29zh8 — æternity Español (@aeternityesp) October 9, 2018 Regardless of the reason behind this latest price rise, it is evident traders are quite happy with the way things are going right now. CRACKadabra explains how the Aeternity price has progressed nicely and seems well underway to keep going up as more time progresses. Although this current increase is very steep, a correction might not be forthcoming for a little while.

A healthy 15% profit has been noted from a trade opened just a few days ago, further indicating this current uptrend was bound to happen at this time. At the same time, this appears to signal the bull run could be on its last legs. BUY trade for $AE (Aeternity) opened on 10/4/2018 4:26 PM has been closed at a PROFIT of 15%.

Trade closed at BTC 0.00018438.#AE #Crypto #Cryptocurrency #Binance #Aeternity — Bobcat Crypto (@BobcatCrypto) October 10, 2018 As is always the case in the world of cryptocurrency, strong gains are usually followed by even steeper corrections. In the case of Aeternity, it is very likely this trend will not remain in place for more than a few hours. At the same time, the current value of $1.23 can trigger another wave of buying by speculators and push the price higher in the process.

As a result, he now has to pay two-thirds of his monthly salary to the bank for the next three years. (VS)
