In the Daily: Coins at Kiosks, Micropayment Solutions, Token Launchpad, GPU Inventory

In this edition of The Daily, we feature a couple of announcements by leading crypto exchanges. Binance starts selling cryptocurrency for cash at newsagent stores in Australia, while Huobi is launching its new token listing platform. In other news, Aeternity and Satoshipay join forces to offer faster crypto micropayments and Nvidia expects to clear mining chip inventory in this quarter. Also read: Crypto Data Feed, BSV Sale, Bitmain Office Closed Binance to Sell Cryptocurrencies at Newsagents in Australia Binance, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange by volume, has announced the launch of Binance Lite Australia, a platform that will allow local residents to buy cryptocurrency at more than 1,300 newsagents across the country. Currently, the new cash-to-crypto service supports only purchases of bitcoin core (BTC) with Australian dollars (AUD) but other digital coins and fiat currency options will be added in the future. To acquire the crypto, customers will have to place an order online and then deposit the cash at the nearest newspaper kiosk. But before they can do so, they will have to provide their personal details and pass account verification on the website of the platform, binancelite.com. Verified users will be able to place their orders and receive the coins within minutes, the exchange promised in a blog post. Binance Lite Australia will charge a 5 percent fee for the service. Token Launchpad Huobi Prime to Go Live on Tuesday Digital asset exchange Huobi announced the launch date of its new token listing platform. Huobi Prime will go live next Tuesday, March 26, the company revealed in a tweet this week. The first campaign based on Huobi’s launchpad will be held by a project called TOP Network, which will distribute 1.5 billion TOP tokens among its users in three 30-minute rounds. According to the announcement, Huobi Prime will allow crypto projects to trade their coins immediately in a model described by the exchange as “direct premium offering.” Tokens issued through the platform, which is an alternative to Binance Launchpad, may be listed in the future on Huobi Global and Hbus in trading pairs with USDT, BTC, ETH, and KRW. Aeternity Invests in Micropayment Platform Satoshipay Aeternity, a project developing a blockchain protocol for smart contracts with open code, has acquired a stake in Satoshipay. According to a press release, the deal was sealed during the latest financing round for the micropayment service. Satoshipay will now be able to integrate Aeternity nanopayment solutions and offer its users faster transactions. Axel Springer SE, one of the largest digital content companies in Europe which runs news outlets such as Upday, Die Welt, Bild, and Business Insider, will be among the first users of the new services offered by Aeternity and Satoshipay. Its users will be able to pay for the content with cryptocurrency via the Satoshipay wallet. Nvidia to Clear Mining GPU Inventory Video card manufacturer Nvidia is expecting to soon clear the excess inventory accumulated in anticipation of high demand for cryptocurrency mining equipment. The company believes it will manage to achieve that during Q1 of 2019, according to comments made by its CFO Colette Kress during a meeting with investors in California this past Tuesday, Bloomberg reported. The stockpile of unsold graphics processing components was created when the sales of chips dropped last year following the decline in cryptocurrency prices.

The aeternity Team Urges Miners to Spread Mining Power Across Pools

The aeternity team is urging the community to help them make the network healthier. In a tweet, aeternity reminded miners “to spread their mining power among the existing aeternity mining pools” in an attempt to prevent too much control going to a single pool. At year-end 2018, the community suggested that Beepool already had more than 50% of the hashrate. The aeternity team also noted that additional mining pools are in the pipeline, pointing to “stratum support in the node.” Stratum is a protocol that supports pooled mining. Among the existing aeternity pools are Beepool-China, UUpool-China, and F2pool-China. (GT)

Video: Aeternity Is Fast, But Can It Catch Up?

Today’s Video Briefing takes a look at one of this week’s big winners: Aeternity. The Aeon token showed strong gains yesterday, but it’s still far downhill from the all-time high. Can this blockchain return to a billion-dollar market cap, or will hodlers be waiting an “aeternity” for it to succeed? Kiana introduces some of the properties that set AE apart, including fast transactions on a highly-scalable, ASIC-resistant network. The platform’s architects have learned a lot from Ethereum’s hard lessons, and designed their blockchain to integrate state channels and oracles from day one. That makes Aeternity technically one of the fastest blockchain networks, but is that enough to overcome ETH’s headstart? Next, Kiana takes a look at the technical charts to assess Aeon’s long-term performance. Yesterday’s strong gains probably won’t last long, but they did test key levels that could suggest future breakouts. Can Aeternity successfully jump over the scaling hurdles, or is it too far behind? Let us know what you think in the comments, and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE! Join the conversation on Telegram and Twitter!

Crypto Arbitrage Today: Up to 20% Profit With AE, ZEC, ETC, LTC, EOS, Dash

Bullish cryptocurrency prices can make for appealing trading opportunities, just like their bearish counterparts would do. In the altcoin arbitrage world, there are always specific price gaps waiting to be exploited by those who have the funds to do so. In some cases, rather spectacular profits can be scored, although most averages remain modest. Any money is better than no money in this industry, though. Aeternity (Sistemkoin / Gate) It is the second this week a massive price gap opens up where Aeternity is concerned. This altcoin, while not generating a ton of trading volume, is listed on a few different exchanges. As of today, the price difference between Sistemkoin and Gate is nearly 20%. For those willing to explore this price gap, good money can be made in the process. Such a gap usually does not remain in place for long, which is only normal. ZCash (HitBTC / BTCBIT / Poloniex) It is the first time the BTCBIT exchange shows up in arbitrage opportunities, but the more the merrier. As new trading platforms try to make a name for itself, there will always be some value discrepancies pertaining to the assets listed on that exchange. Buying ZCash on HitBTC, Poloniex, or Gate and selling it on BTCBIT will yield an average profit of 8.8%. A very appealing price gap, although liquidity may be a bit of a concern. Ethereum Classic (Poloniex / Gobaba / BTCBIT) It seems the BTCBIT platform may quickly become the go-to place for cryptocurrency arbitrage opportunities, as its prices are very high compared to the rest of the market In the case of Ethereum Classic, the price on BTCBIT is higher compared to Poloniex, Gate, Gobaba, Koineks, Binance, and Ku Coin The average profit is roughly 8.5%, which is a more than respectable figure. Dash (Livecoin / BTCBIT) Things always get very interesting when two exchanges with lower liquidity are involved in one and the same arbitrage opportunity. Buying Dash on Livecoin and selling it on BTCBIT can earn traders a profit of 8.16%. There is also an option to buy Dash from Kraken, HitBTC, Poloniex, Gate, Bittrex, or Sistemkoin for a similar profit. Flipping Dash between Bittrex or Kraken and HitBTC can also yield a 1.1% profit. EOS (Gobaba / Binance / Bitfinex) A few interesting price discrepancies involving EOS have become apparent this morning. There is a 1.02% difference between Gobaba and Bitfinex, which makes for an appealing option. Users can also buy EOS on either Binance or KuCoin and sell it on HitBTC for a 1.79% profit. All of these options are pretty significant, especially when all markets go into a major bull run as they have lately. Litecoin (BTCBIT / Kraken / KuCoin) On any given day, there is room for arbitrage opportunities involving HitBTC. Today is such a day, although in a slightly different manner than people would expect. The LTC price on Binance, HitBTC, KuCoin and Bittrex is 9.5% lower compared to BTCBIT. As such, easy profits can be pocketed from moving funds from exchange A to exchange B. Buying on Kraken, Kucoin, or Binance and selling on HitBTC also works, albeit the average profit for doing so is just 1%. Information provided by Arbing Tool.

Why Coinbase Will List More ERC20 Tokens In the Coming Days

Only a few hours ago, crypto traders were treated to an early Christmas by Coinbase as the exchange listed 4 new cryptocurrencies on its Pro Version of the platform. The newly listed digital assets are Dai (DAI), Maker (MKR), Golem, (GNT) and Zilliqa (ZIL). The exchange went on to state that the smart contract functionality of these tokens will initially not be available. The announcement by Coinbase stated: 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. Coinbase’s Intention to Support the ERC20 Technical Standard Across the Platform News of the addition of more ERC20 tokens does not come as a surprise to many crypto enthusiasts who were aware that the exchange had announced its plan to support the Ethereum ERC20 technical standard on the platform. A March 2018 announcement by the exchange stated the following: We’re excited to announce our intention to support the Ethereum ERC20 technical standard for Coinbase in the coming months. This paves the way for supporting ERC20 assets across Coinbase products in the future... Prominent ERC20 Tokens Listed By Coinbase The past few months and days have seen the platform list the following ERC20 tokens: 0x (ZRX), Basic Attention Token (BAT), USD Coin (USDC), Civic (CVC), district0x (DNT), Loom Network (LOOM) and Decentraland (MANA). This is in addition to the recently listed DAI (DAI), Golem (GNT), Maker (MKR), and Zilliqa (ZIL). Revisiting the List of 31 Digital Asset the Exchange Had Announced it Was Exploring Out of the 31 digital asset that Coinbase has announced it was exploring on supporting on the platform, only 6 are on their own blockchain networks. They include ADA, EOS, NEO, XLM, XRP and Tezos (XTZ). The rest are ERC20 tokens. A list of ERC20 tokens yet to be listed by the exchange are as follows. Aeternity (AE), Aragon (ANT), Bread Wallet (BRD), EnjinCoin (ENJ), IOST (IOST), Kin (KIN), Kyber Network (KNC), ChainLink (LINK), Loopring (LRC), Mainframe (MFT), OmiseGo (OMG), Po.et (POE), QuarkChain (QKC), Augur (REP), Request Network (REQ), Status (SNT) and Storj (STORJ) Savvy crypto traders have probably started the process of elimination to try and figure out which of the 17 remaining tokens will be next on Coinbase thus providing profitable trading opportunities. What About XRP, Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA)? Based on Coinbase’s aforementioned preference to list ERC20 tokens first, it is safe to conclude that the exchange will not list the popular cryptocurrencies of XRP, XLM and ADA anytime soon. However, their is still a slight chance that the exchange might surprise us like they did when they listed ZCash. No one expected them to list ZEC before XLM and ADA. As we approach Christmas, the odds of Coinbase surprising us by listing an unlikely coin (not ERC20 token) should be considered. But we also have to be realistic based on the fact that ERC20 tokens are more likely to be listed before XLM, ADA and XRP. What are your thoughts on the possibilty of Coinbase continuing to list more ERC20 tokens? Please let us know in the comment section below. Disclaimer: This article is not meant to give financial advice. Any additional opinion herein is purely the author’s and does not represent the opinion of Ethereum World News or any of its other writers.

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.

Aeternity Team Talks About the Launch of ‘Roma’ Public Blockchain

Aeternity recently launched the first five implementations of the Aeternity blockchain from a villa in the outskirts of Rome. CCN interviewed the project's director, Marion Vogel and Nikola Stojanow, the firm’s CBDO. Marion explained that Roma was a step forward in decentralization and that with its implementation, it is everyone’s project. Marion went on to say that the project seeks to make the blockchain technology user-friendly so that anyone can use it. Roma also solves scalability issues on the blockchain. Nikola spoke about Aeternity’s upcoming programs dubbed ‘Aepps’ which are mobile dApps that facilitate the browsing of other decentralized apps easily from one location. (KE)

Aeternity Blockchain Goes Live For The First Time

After two years of development, Aeternity (AE) is now live. The company has released its first live implementation, bringing scalable smart contracts and user-friendly oracles. The latest version called Roma was released at a launching ceremony in Rome earlier this week. The blockchain uses a unique proof-of-work mechanism, that features a “temporary leader” who is randomly chosen to verify the blocks. Aterenity (AE) is priced at $0.559241, losing 3.53% in the last 24 hours. (VS)

Aeternity Goes Live In Roma Release

Aeternity has released its first live implementation, bringing the new blockchain platform one step closer to providing scalable smart contracts and user-friendly oracles. The new implementation, code-named Roma, was released at a launching ceremony in Rome earlier this week. In a press release after the launch, the aeternity team declared that developers, miners and users would now be able to interact with a live version of the network for the first time. “After two years’ hard work, æternity has created a system that delivers on the original promise of enabling faster transactions without sacrificing rich functionality and decentralization,” said aeternity founder Yanislav Malahov. “The protocol is based on an entirely new architecture that builds on the lessons learned over the past 10 years of blockchain-focused research.” It’s the first step towards full functionality from the project, which completed the first phase of its token migration from the Ethereum blockchain last week. Although not quite consumer-ready, the Roma implementation will allow technical users to earn AE token bounties by securing the network. Developers may begin creating dApps for the network in Sophia, the aeternity programming language. Solving Proof of Work This is one of several new blockchain projects seeking to scale beyond the limitations of Proof-of-Work consensus algorithms. While it’s not the only project to piggyback on Ethereum while developing a dApp platform, many of its competitors underperformed after their main net launch. While Proof-of-Stake consensus is far more resource-efficient than mining, it also has a “rich-get-richer” effect that rewards early adopters and discourages later entrants. aeternity’s solution to those problems is a modified proof-of-work consensus algorithm. BitcoinNG, developed by researchers at Cornell University, features a “temporary leader” who is randomly chosen by PoW to verify events between blocks, effectively allowing real-time transactions without waiting for a block confirmation. In addition, the new blockchain uses a novel PoW algorithm that is memory-intensive rather than CPU-intensive, reducing the benefits of ASIC mining. When aeternity ASICs do arrive, “hardware manufacturers will not have an advantage on creating ASICs over common users,” due to the new algorithm, aeternity claims. “No need for sophisticated GPUs and designs, no company or companies guarding the technology.” The new consensus algorithm is one of many innovations built into the aeternity protocol, which also includes built-in oracles, allowing smart contracts and dApps that react to real-world data. DSTOQ, a Stellar DEX, has already arranged for aeternity oracles to provide information streams to users of the trading platform, as Crypto Briefing has previously reported. The launch will allow the blockchain to develop into an independent ecosystem for decentralized applications, aeternity says. Starfleet, an accelerator for startups building on aeternity, will soon begin developing commercial applications and growing the ecosystem. The author is invested in Ethereum, which is mentioned in this article. The post Aeternity Goes Live In Roma Release appeared first on Crypto Briefing.

Markets Update: Cryptocurrencies Shed Billions in Bloody Sell-Off

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts have been glued to the price charts over the last 48 hours as digital assets across the entire crypto-economy have plunged significantly. Since our last markets update two days ago, the digital currency ecosystem has lost over $30 billion and the overall market capitalization of all 2,000+ coins now sits at around $159 billion. Also read: Cryptocurrency ATM Growth Spikes Exponentially to 4,000 Machines Worldwide The Sell-Off and Shakeup Markets have been bloody over the last few days with nearly every digital asset reaching its lowest price point of the year. Traditionally, cryptocurrency prices are usually bullish during November, but this year has been the exact opposite. Even though prices are extremely low, cryptocurrency market volumes have more than doubled over the last 24 hours. This shows that traders are playing new positions and scooping up coins at much lower prices in hopes their value will rise again. Top 10 cryptocurrencies on Nov. 20, 2018. Right now the price of bitcoin core (BTC) is around $4,800, but during overnight trading sessions BTC stumbled down to $4,237 per coin. Ripple (XRP) markets have been doing better than most but had dipped to a low of $0.41 per XRP. The XRP token is down 6.6% today, and over 13.4% over the last seven days. XRP is now back up to $0.46 per token according to the most recent data. Ethereum (ETH) now commands the third position among the top 10 market capitalizations and is down 35% for the week. Currently, ETH is trading for $144 per coin and holds a $14.8 billion market valuation. Lastly, stellar (XLM) has been pushed back to fifth position and is trading for $0.21 this Tuesday. Stellar markets are down 23% for the week but briefly managed to take the fourth position among the top 10 market caps. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Market Action Bitcoin cash (BCH) markets took a pretty hard hit this week and prices have dropped about 54% over the last seven days. However, prices have varied depending on which exchange is being observed due to some metrics splitting the price of BCH into two. For instance, the aggregated price for BCH on data sites like Coinmarketcap show $255 per BCH, but other trading platforms like Bitstamp show a spot price of $302. BCH daily chart. Further, bitcoin cash trade volume globally is super low compared to the rest of the crypto-economy, with only $134.9 million global trades over the last day. This is due to a lot of exchanges which are still not servicing BCH orders, five days after the network fork. Again this has made currency pairs much different than in weeks prior as ETH is the top pair traded with BCH today, capturing 34% of all BCH trades. This is followed by BTC (29%), USDT (17.7%), KRW (13.7), and JPY (3.1%). BCH/USD markets show only 0.55% of all BCH trades are currently using USD for swaps. Technical Indicators Looking at the charts on Bitstamp currently shows an average BCH/USD spot price of around $303. Relative Strength Index levels were screaming a low of -10, showing significant oversold conditions during the early morning trading sessions, but have bumped back up to around -36. The RSI and Stochastic still show conditions are oversold, but BCH prices are starting to kick back into a higher gear and these conditions may not last long. Bitstamp BCH/USD Nov. 20, 2018. The two Simple Moving Averages (SMA) show the short-term 100 SMA is above the longer term 200 SMA, indicating a possible trend reversal from bearish to bullish could be on the cards. Order books show a different story, however, as both sides have significantly sized buy and sell walls. On the upside, there will be some good pit stops around $360 and higher and on the backside foundational support from the current vantage point until $240. Bitstamp BCH/USD Nov. 20, 2018. The Verdict: Market Participants Still Confident in the Long Term It’s hard to gauge how the cryptocurrency community is dealing with the big drops in value as many still seem confident in the long-term future of digital assets and blockchain technology. However, most crypto markets saw a huge sell-off, recording their lowest figures since Oct. 2017. The five coins that have shed the most over the last 24 hours are centrality (CENNZ), maker (MKR), aeternity (AE), waves (WAVES), and bitcoin gold (BTG). Meanwhile, Bitcoin Cash proponents are waiting for more businesses to open up services as exchanges and wallets have slowly been coming back online over the last 24 hours. According to data collected from Coinmarketcap and Poloniex, the split coin BSV has been trading at between $40-60 over the last two hours.

In Sunday’s edition of The Daily, we cover the upcoming launch of a new Visa debit card that will allow users in the U.S. to spend cryptocurrencies through conversion to fiat. We also mention the updated Coinbase wallet and take a look at an educational course that’s going to reward students with digital coins. Also read: New Woe for ICOs, Bitcoin Cash Trading Resumes Crypto.com to Launch Prepaid Visa Cards in the US New York-based Metropolitan Commercial Bank and Foris Inc., a Jacksonville, Florida-headquartered affiliate of digital asset wallet provider Crypto.com, are preparing to issue Visa crypto debit cards in the United States. The announcement comes after Crypto.com, a Hong Kong-based company formerly known as Monaco, recently launched its Mco Visa card program in Singapore. The prepaid cards, which have no annual, monthly and ATM withdrawal fees, can be ordered from the wallet and card app of the cryptocurrency payment platform. The application allows users to purchase, sell, store, send and track cryptocurrencies. Customers can also use it to spend their digital coins in stores accepting Visa through conversion to fiat money without being charged exchange fees. Reservations for the Mco Visa cards can be made after users pass an onboarding process which includes ID verification. According to a press release, over 100,000 cards have already been reserved globally. With the wallet app, cardholders will be able to manage the card usage and their crypto and fiat transactions. They can also freeze and unfreeze their cards with a single tap at any moment. Coinbase Wallet Updated Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has updated its Ethereum-based wallet to improve its looks and add new functionalities. According to an announcement on Twitter, all supported ERC20 tokens will now show up automatically, along with available values in local fiat currency. That means users will no longer need to manually add the tokens to their portfolios. The California-based digital asset trading platform has also introduced a new crypto collectibles gallery integrated with Opensea and Rarebits to support hundreds of collectibles. Other changes include improved stability, security, and better gas price estimation. The wallet app has already been updated for iPhone users. The new version for Android phones is expected within the next few days. Course Rewards Students With Coins Aeternity, a company that manages smart contracts, has recently teamed up with peer-to-peer online learning platform Dacade to launch an introductory course for cryptocurrencies and blockchain. The free program is designed to educate users, developers and entrepreneurs on the basics of crypto-related technologies. Furthermore, students who develop practical use cases will be rewarded with aeternity tokens. According to Coinmarketcap, the Aeternity coin (AE) currently sells for around $0.88. The first edition of the course is a non-technical introduction for beginners but the partners plan to soon form advanced learning communities for developers. Tron Launches Dapp Development Program Cryptocurrency project Tron (TRX) has unveiled a $1 million program to support developers of decentralized applications (dapps). The accelerator will distribute rewards among 56 teams developing dapps and products based on the Tron protocol. According to an announcement, the initiative is aimed at supporting the spread of blockchain technologies among users. It comes after Tron recently bought the file-sharing service Bittorrent, the payment service Poppy and launched its Atlas project. The winners of the three “grand prizes” will divide a pool of $550,000. Another eight “special prizes” of $30,000 will be awarded to leading projects in several categories, and 42 teams will receive “finalist prizes” worth $5,000 each.

Aeternity Partners with Decade to Introduce a Blockchain Course that Rewards Students with Cryptocurrency

Aeternity has reportedly collaborated with Decade, an online P2P education network. This partnership seeks to launch a blockchain course for beginners. According to a blog post on Aeternity’s website, its free blockchain-related courses aim to educate future users, entrepreneurs, and developers on the blockchain's principles. Aeternity would reward students taking these courses after completing specific assignments and tasks. Per Aeternity’s Nikola Stojanow, the students would earn $10 in aeternity tokens for submitting satisfactory responses. Also, students can get $2 in aeternity tokens for any meaningful feedback.

Even In A Bear Market Aeternity Will Pay You To Study Blockchain

It’s not easy to learn about the blockchain, and you can’t get all your information from quiz shows. Even in a bear market the demand for professionals is growing, and it’s now possible to study blockchain technology... while getting paid for it. aeternity (AE) has teamed up with dacade, a peer-to-peer learning platform, to launch an introductory blockchain course. Unlike other online classes, students will be paid—in crypto. In a joint press release from aeternity and dacade, the partners announced that the series of blockchain courses is expected to “educate future users, entrepreneurs, and developers on the fundamentals of blockchain technology and reward students with æternity tokens” for developing practical use cases. The first course, titled “Introduction to Blockchain,” is only a non-technical primer on crypto technology, but the partners hope to expand the curriculum to include developers and coding professionals. Coursework will include tutorials, followed by practical challenges, aeternity said in a statement, and students will receive code reviews based on their submissions. “The challenge for this learning community is to come up with a problem, where blockchain technology could be meaningfully applied,” said Nikola Stojanow, aeternity’s chief of Strategy and Business Development, in an email. “If the student submits a satisfactory response, they earn 10$ in æternity tokens. Additionally they can earn 2$ in aeternity tokens for every meaningful feedback that they provide on the submissions of their peers.” A more advanced course, titled “æternity Development 101” teaches students to build decentralized applications based on tutorials and course material. “Our content will generally focus on developers since they are currently the scarcest resource in the blockchain ecosystem,” Stojanow said. aeternity hopes that the course will help make cryptocurrency and blockchain technology more accessible. As a gamified platform for online learning, the partnership with dacade is hoped to bring development skills to the wider public. “Through our cooperation, we aim to address the challenge of providing accessible, practical blockchain education in a scalable way,” said dacade founder Moritz Stellmacher. “We believe that a decentralized approach to blockchain education will make it not only more scalable and accessible but also flexible enough to accommodate new information, as it becomes available. I am excited to see what new blockchain use cases the students will come up with.” The courses are aeternity’s latest push to gain presence in a marketplace full of struggling blockchain protocols. Although capable of stronger oracles and higher dApp throughput than Ethereum, the aeternity blockchain is some way behind when it comes to name recognition and network effects. That may be due for a change, if the blockchain can demonstrate its capabilities to a new crop of developers. The author is not invested in aeternity but owns other digital assets.

Liqui.io Accused of Delisting Popular Tokens to Scam Customers

Liqui.io, a cryptocurrency exchange based in Ukraine, has been accused of defrauding customers by delisting tokens, sometimes its top volume tokens like BAT and giving only 15 days to withdraw funds before seizing them. For example, in its delisting announcements, Liqui.io states: “Once the withdrawal deadline has been reached withdrawals will be disabled and the asset will be fully decommissioned. From this point forward, we will be unable to process withdrawals of impacted assets. It is imperative that customers withdraw delisted tokens by the withdrawal deadline.” Users are complaining that they have been scammed. The exchange has over 290,000 users, and it is likely that numerous users will not see the delisting announcements and end up leaving their coins on the exchange until they are confiscated. There are claims that Liqui.io is actively liquidating USD 300,000 of customer’s assets. Further, customers assert that withdraws were halted well before the 15-day deadline, giving customers no chance at retrieving funds even if they saw the announcement in time. It is unknown why Liqui.io does not leave the withdraws open until all customers have a chance to get their funds back. This is especially true for ERC-20 tokens like BAT which use the Ethereum wallet. The Ethereum wallet is still active for other coins on Liqui.io, and would work fine for withdrawing delisted coins if allowed. On 28 September 2018, Liqui.io delisted CFI, TAAS, EDG, MCO, MGO, WAVES, BAT, MLN, TKN, MYST, ICN, TIME, and REQ. On 27 October 2018 Liqui.io delisted NET, XID, PTOY, NEU, ZRX, REN, AE, DNT, QRL, SNM, SRN, and STX. BAT and ZRX are tokens that were just added to Coinbase, causing a surge in popularity. The 15-day window has already closed for these tokens, meaning any customers who left these tokens on Liqui.io have lost them.

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%.

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.
