Cryptocurrency is just one of seven types of cryptoassets you should know

Two years ago, the entire cryptoasset market had a value of $9 billion. Had it been a public company, it would barely have cracked the S&P 500 index. Fewer than two years later, the cryptoasset market is $300 billion in size, roughly double the market capitalization of RBC, Canada’s largest lender. The explosion (and recent pull-back) of value in cryptoassets like bitcoin and ether has captured the imagination of developers, and the attention of the media, governments, central banks, the investing public, and regulators. It has made enthusiasts euphoric, Nobel laureates skeptical, and old-school billionaires dyspeptic. Charlie Munger of Berkshire Hathaway went so far as to call bitcoin “noxious poison.” Is there any other kind of poison? To be sure, there is a lot of hype in this market, and the industry must confront such implementation challenges as scaling technology and regulatory uncertainty. But beyond the hype and mania, something profound is happening—the creation of an entirely new digital asset class. This new asset class will transform every industry in the economy, from financial services to pharmaceuticals, media to manufacturing. Existing assets like stocks and bonds will become digital assets and new yet unforeseen assets will emerge, enabling new decentralized business models based on collaboration and clever code. Understanding the various types of cryptoassets, and the different functions they serve, is crucial to thriving in this new decentralized digital economy. In the updated version of Blockchain Revolution, we break them down into at least seven categories: Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, the granddaddy of all cryptoassets, are instruments of exchange, stores of value, and units of account. To wit, bitcoin today holds over $100 billion dollars and supports billions a day in global transactions. Banks are taking notice, going from “bitcoin bad, blockchain good,” to “bitcoin, yikes!” JPMorgan and Bank of America are speaking openly about the risks cryptocurrencies pose to their business, and Goldman Sachs and TMX Group’s Shorcan are moving swiftly to trade these assets. Platform tokens like ether of the Ethereum blockchain, the $40 billion mega-unicorn and Canada’s most successful start-up ever, are designed to support decentralized applications that eliminate intermediaries in virtually every facet of the economy. Ethereum has also emerged as the leading platform for initial coin offerings (so-called ICOs), where a project can tap into global pools of capital. To date, over $7 billion has been raised through ICOs, 70% of them using Ethereum’s standard, ERC-20. Ethereum and its challengers, Cosmos, Aion, and ICON, will form the backbone of the next era of the internet. Utility tokens are programmable blockchain assets that have utility in an application such as Golem, which aims to aggregate the power of the world’s smartphones into a decentralized supercomputer that anyone can use to run computations in exchange for golem tokens. Think Amazon Web Services without Amazon. Security tokens are native digital bonds, equities, and other securities that trade peer to peer without financial intermediaries. Why should a stock trade settle T+3 when buyer and seller can trade directly and settle T+0 on a decentralized exchange? The Canadian Securities Exchange intends to get into this market. Others would be wise to follow. ICOs have already upended venture capital. Bay Street will be next. Natural asset tokens represent tangible goods like gold, oil, or carbon in peer-to-peer markets with real-time settlement. For example, the Royal Mint partnered with the Chicago Mercantile exchange to create Royal Mint Gold, a digital gold token backed by gold bullion in the Royal Mint’s vaults. The entire commodities market is up for grabs, as is mass-market carbon trading. Cryptocollectibles are entirely unique digital assets. Consider CryptoKitties, an app that enables users to purchase, raise, and even breed unique virtual pets. As of January 2018, Cryptokitties’ 235,000 users had conducted $52 million in transactions. Companies like Everledger and others are enabling the tracking and trading of these rare and very real collectibles on the blockchain. Crypto-fiat currencies are issued and governed by central banks. In 2017, Venezuela shocked many by announcing its launch of “the Petro,” a cryptocurrency backed by the country’s vast oil reserves. The Federal Reserve and Bank of Canada should take notice: implemented properly, crypto-fiat currencies can make markets more efficient, transparent, and inclusive, and central bank policy more responsive to crises and shocks. This Cambrian explosion of cryptoassets will precipitate one of the greatest reorganizations of wealth and transformations to the global economy in our history. This represents a second kick at the can—an opportunity to assure that everyone has the ability to benefit from the prosperity of the digital age. To truly realize that promise, h

Cryptocurreny Market Update: Only Hardcore Hodlers Still in The Game

FOMO Moments Monday markets are looking red; XRP and Dash sliding, Tron and Tezos holding ground. Monday morning in Asia is a red one in crypto land as markets slide further back. There have been no more major selloffs, however, and losses are marginal. Total market capitalization is still in the $200 billion range. Bitcoin has not moved for the past four days and is still holding support at just below $6,300. BTC has dictated the flow of the rest of the market enough times this year and it seems to still be doing so as there is little movement elsewhere at the moment. Ethereum has weakened further, dropping back to $195 as ETH loses another 2% on the day. The altcoins are all red at the moment dropping a percent or two from yesterday’s levels. In the top ten XRP, Stellar and Cardano have fallen the furthest losing around 2-3 percent on the day. The rest are down between one and two percent at the moment. The top twenty shows a similar situation with Dash making the biggest drop of 3% to reach $156. The other alts are down 0-2 percent right now. Tron and Tezos are holding steady with no further losses. As usual there is a daily pump going on and at the moment it is Komodo which is up 13% to $1.13. New wallets and updates continue to flow from the team but like all other cryptocurrencies KMD is still painfully low. Komodo is level on the week but up 12% since the same time last month. At the red end of the table in the top one hundred is Nexo dropping 10%, and yesterday’s pump, Digitex Futures, is predictably dumping today falling 7%. Loom Network and Aion are also sliding 6-7 percent on the day. Total crypto market capitalization has fallen a further one percent during Asian trading this morning. Markets fell back to $198 billion but have recovered a little to climb back over $200 billion at the moment. Since last Monday crypto markets have lost 8%, and since the same time last month they are pretty much at the same level. Crypto markets have been at this bottom for around two months now, the longest inactive period since last year. Bitcoin dominance has gradually increased again and is now at 54.4% as altcoins get dumped and only hardcore hodlers remain in the game. FOMO Moments is a section that takes a daily look at the top 20 altcoins during the current trading session and analyses the best performing ones, looking for trends and possible fundamentals.

Aion Price Gains 17% as Binance Confirms Token Swap Support

Things are looking relatively boring where the top 20 cryptocurrencies ranked by market cap are concerned. In the case of Aion, an altcoin which has not been making too many headlines, things are progressing nicely. It is one of the strongest gainers in the top 100 altogether, as its value is on the verge of surpassing $0.46. Aion Price is on the Move Most cryptocurrency users won’t be familiar with Aion, the cryptocurrency. That is not abnormal, as this project seems to get lost in the sea of altcoins and tokens coming to market in the past year. In the case of this project, its developers are designing a multi-tier system to address scalability and enhance blockchain interoperability. A worthwhile venture, which seems to be getting a lot of attention as of right now. Over the past 24 hours, there has been an increasing demand for AION, resulting in a relatively decent overall trading volume. This increase in demand has resulted in a 17% USD gain, followed by a 16.5% increase over Bitcoin and an 18% gain on Ethereum. That in itself is pretty interesting, especially for a currency so few people seem to be actively talking about as of right now. The main reason for this sudden Aion price gain is, as is usually the case in the altcoin world, related to Binance. The world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange has confirmed it will support the main net token swap, which is bound to occur in the coming few weeks. This is great news for existing ERC20 token holders, as they will have an easier time converting their tokens to the “real deal” moving forward. #Binance Will Support #AION ( $AION) Mainnet Token Swaphttps://t.co/Yqb70EcGlg pic.twitter.com/86fhPIAVIg — Binance (@binance) October 13, 2018 Any upward momentum in the altcoin department will become subject to technical analysis and speculation. CRYPTO FREAK confirms he missed the Aion price action, which is entirely to be expected. At the same time, one has to wonder where the top will be for this altcoin, as these current gains are already on the high side of the spectrum. update: #aion - $AION 100% missed this as my bids were way lower ( not even close ahah ) - insane pump. please don't buy the top pic.twitter.com/soKG1kggpw — CRYPTO FREAK (@teddycleps) October 13, 2018 A similar sentiment is echoed by Crypto Coffee, who has successfully taken some profit on this recent Aion price trend. There will undoubtedly be a big retrace fairly soon, although this trader expects another uptrend to materialize in the future. A risky gamble, although the outcome is not entirely implausible either by any means. Any price action can lead to decent profits, although there will always be dips after the uptrend. $AION #aion "Profit" Edition- Taking a little profit here on the thought that I'll rebuy on the little retrace - Its a little risk but if it just keeps pumping there are 100 other opportunities too pic.twitter.com/DB9QcY5E71 — CRYPTO. COFFEE. Gat's Ad Space For Sale (@overheardcoffee) October 14, 2018 As most of Aion’s trading volume originates from the Binance exchange, it will be interesting to see how long this uptrend will remain in place. Reaching $0.46 isn’t impossible, but anything beyond that point will make it seem like an even bigger pump than it already is. An interesting trend to keep an eye on, as altcoin speculators have been waiting for some action to materialize sooner or later.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: A Lazy Sunday in Crypto Land

FOMO Moments Crypto markets are horizontal today; Only Digitex Futures is pumping. Cryptocurrency markets are still at the bottom following their mid-week dump. There has been no sign of a bounce back to previous levels as total market capitalization is still hovering just above $200 billion. Bitcoin has remained on a flat line since its Thursday dump of $300. BTC fell to $6,300 and is currently trading just below that level, it has fallen 5% since the same time last weekend. Ethereum is also very depressed at the moment after falling back to $200 and remaining there for the past 3 days. Altcoins are mostly in the red this morning, but movements are minimal. Looking at the top ten nothing is really moving more than a percent or so in either direction. Cardano has lost almost 2% on the day to fall back to $0.073. The rest are flat this Sunday during Asian trading. The top twenty is showing similar lethargy at the moment with most cryptos shifting around a percent up or down on the day. Dash is showing the greatest gain which is just 1.7% bringing it to $161, while Tezos is falling back by a similar amount dropping it to $1.22. The fomo induced pump of the day in the top one hundred is currently Digitex Futures which has surged 47% in the past 24 hours. These unnatural spikes usually happen when new altcoins increase in market cap but they often dump again just as quickly. Time will tell if DGTX can hold its gains. Aion has also done well since the dump, today it is up 18%. At the red end of the table is Noah Coin dumping all of its recent gains and falling back 26% on the day. MaidSafeCoin is also having a tough Sunday with an 11% slide. Total crypto market capitalization has not moved over the past 24 hours and is still very low at $202 billion. Trade volume has dipped below $10 billion for the first time since the end of August and crypto markets look very dejected at the moment. Markets are back to the same level they were at this time last month which appears to be the bottom, unless another dump is imminent.

Aion Advances 10%, Founder Matt Spoke Expects Fewer Industry Protocols, More Apps

Aion has advanced 10% in the last 24-hour period on trading volume of $1.7 million. Aion, which is a network designed to address scalability, among other features, may be receiving a boost after the project’s founder Matt Spoke has been making the media rounds. He said in a video broadcast on YouTube there is a “frustration” among businesses building on various blockchains surrounding a “lack of scale.” He believes “the evolution of the industry will see fewer protocols and significantly larger numbers of applications built on those protocols," adding: "We hope Aion is going to be one of the last [ones] standing.” (GT)

The Token Swap from AION ERC-20 to AION to Take Place this year from September to November

On 25th April this year, AION, a blockchain based project for blockchain interoperability, was launched on Kilimanjaro mainnet. After the launch, it transitioned to the AION ERC-20 to its native coin AION. Since investors were issued with AION ERC-20, a token swap to AION has been scheduled to take place this year from September to November. The exchange ratio for the token swap will be 1:1. (KE)

Aion Network Announced Token Swap Details

## https://i.redd.it/txoxzqlxdhg11.png Matt Spoke gives Token Swap Overview: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxe71es5SPw](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxe71es5SPw) On April 25th, 2018 the Aion Kilimanjaro mainnet was released along with the launch of Aion mainnet coin and we are excited to be moving forward with the next stage of this release, namely the ERC-20 token to AION coin swap. The AION coin is the native asset of the Aion blockchain (as outlined in our Whitepaper), which is utilized for critical network functionality and our crypto-economic mechanisms namely: peer-to-peer transactions, utilization of computational resources, rewarding network operators and ultimately a critical security mechanism for inter-chain bridging and our consensus roadmap While Aion is not the first organization to be performing a swap, we have taken this opportunity to apply our engineering excellence and provide what we believe to be a first-of-its-kind technology. We will be using a trustless Token Transfer Bridge, which will facilitate the swapping of the ERC-20 Token to the AION coin without requiring any intermediaries. In addition to the Token Transfer bridge we will be supporting the swap via traditional means of exchanges as described in more detail below. **IMPORTANT**: The swap window will be between September and November, and we require all Aion ERC-20 tokens to be swapped for AION coins, as 1) the full supply of AION coin is necessary for the healthy operations and the crypto-economic design of the network, and 2) there will be no future utility for the ERC-20 token and consequently we will be removing support for the token at the end of November. **Next Steps:** Signup here to receive future updates on the timing and details of the swap process. All updates will also be documented on official Aion forums (blog). We’ll be releasing full documentation outlining the process of the token swap in early September. https://i.redd.it/w7qs6411ehg11.png **FAQ** *How many AION Coins will I get for my ERC-20 tokens?* The swap will be done at a 1 to 1 rate, so you will receive 1 AION Coin for 1 Aion ERC-20 token. *Will the swap cost me anything?* Using our Token Transfer bridge there will be no cost for the swap, other than the Ethereum gas cost for the transaction. If you use an exchange there may be a small transaction fee for facilitating the swap. You will need to check with each exchange for their transaction fees. *How do I migrate my Aion ERC-20 Tokens?* There are two paths for managing the swap. **1) Exchanges — We are working with a group of global and regional exchanges to provide support for the swap across our diverse community.** In the coming weeks we will be updating a list of our partner exchanges that will be supporting the swap. These exchanges will allow you to deposit ERC-20 tokens during the swap period and at conclusion you will be able to withdraw AION coins. 2) **Bridge —** You can access the bridge through our Bridge UI and wallet interfaces such as MEW, MyCrypto, Meta Mask, Coinomi and Jaxx. To create your new Aion public address to input into the Bridge UI, utilize one of the various Aion Coin supported wallets that will be available for the swap. From the Bridge UI and supporting tools you will be able to send your Aion ERC-20, check on the status of your bridge transaction and receive your AION Coins. *Why do I have to switch to the native coin?* 1. The full supply of Aion coin is necessary for the healthy operations of the crypto-economics of the network, and 2) there will be no future utility for the ERC-20 token and consequently we will be end-of-life’ing the token at the end of November. *What if I don’t migrate?* If you do not to migrate and you hold onto your Aion ERC-20 tokens, your tokens will not be supported by the Aion Foundation, Aion Network, 3rd Exchanges or 3rd party Wallets. *How do I store and interact with my AION Coin?* You may store your AION Coin with any exchange or wallet which supports the AION coin. Follow our blog for news on any new third-party entities which offer AION coin support. *Why am I seeing dual AION listings on some exchanges such as Bilaxy.* Several exchanges will be hosting the new AION coin while simultaneously hosting the legacy Aion ERC20 coin. Although the legacy ERC20 token will no longer be supported by the Aion Foundation, Aion Network or any third parties it will still be present on exchanges for a short period of time. Over time — the ERC20 token will no longer be on exchanges and the only Aion asset listed on exchanges will be the AION coin. *Why is there a price difference between the Aion token and the AION coin?* Although there may be a small variation in price between the Aion Token and the AION coin in the short term, the Aion Foundation will swap at a 1:1 ratio. The Aion Token will have no value or utility after the swap is completed. **AION Coin Supported Wallets** Aion Desktop Wallet (Linux & Win...

Aion Foundation Launches

The Aion network has announced the formal transition of its operations from Nuco Global, the corporate entity that originally created Aion, to the Aion Foundation , which is  a non-profit foundation . This means that Aion will now be guided by the Aion Foundation, which will focus on advancing research, development, and community building activities related to the Aion protocol. This restructuring from a corporate model to a non-profit model has been planned since the AION token sale in October 2017 and will help to create a more inclusive community. (JF)

10 Reasons Why The Perfect Storm is Brewing for AION

The perfect storm is brewing for Aion to become a leader in the crypto space: **1. AIONEX, EDCON & CONSENSUS 2018** conferences have introduced AION to more people, developers & institutional investors than ever before. Matthew Spoke's **[performance on Consensus Interoperability Panel](https://youtu.be/Yb5l5TxxqYY) with Ripple, Polkadot & Litecoin** [left everlasting reactions](https://youtu.be/m9w7GaSOwa4?t=1m50s) & received the only applauses at the end of the Interoperability Panel. **[AION's inaugural Dev conference AIONEX](https://youtu.be/xabjAh9tcl4)** at Toronto on May 02, had **650 attendees**. This is a record unseen by any other crypto's inaugural dev conference to date, compared to just [40 attendees at 1st Ethereum Devcon in 2014. And if Devcon grew to 350 attendees in 2015](https://news.bitcoin.com/ethereum-enthusiasm-devcon-interview-hudson-jameson), it's not hard to see that the next AION Dev conference attendance will be in the thousands. **2. Token Swap** from [Aion ERC-20 to native Aion coins](https://i.imgur.com/L77k7Zk.png) will soon be announced. The **[ETH-AION cross-chain bridge is already built & was showcased live on stage at AIONEX & EDCON](https://youtu.be/9RpXFt1wbe4)**, so it's only a matter of time before it's released. **3. US, Korean & Chinese exchanges** are clearly waiting for the Token Swap to take place before they list native Aion coins rather than Aion ERC-20 tokens, they don't want to painstakingly swap ERC-20 tokens themselves as seen in ICON's token swap delay that's taking exchanges about 2-months & still not accomplished. **4. AION team has grown to [60 in-house team members](https://i.imgur.com/YJr8E6O.jpg)** in 4 different Aion offices in North America, Europe & Asia and plan to grow to 100 people by EOY. This is extremely rare in the crypto space & can only be compared to less than half a dozen of massive platform projects like CARDANO & EOS. **Aion GitHub** activity is continuously ranked in top 10 platforms on **[Darpal Rating](https://medium.com/darpalrating/darpalrating-github-audit-for-200-blockchain-projects-march-2018-3c6b839abdaa)** and **[CryptoMiso](https://cryptomiso.com/months_3.html)**. Github activity, along with commits quality, are important metrics that get overlooked all the time when people compare Aion to other projects based on number of telegram users. Ethereum & Neo never even had telegram... **Fat Protocol Ecosystems are not built by telegram hype but rather by worldwide Dev meetups & armies of developers that can build or contribute something that can change the world.** **5. AION PR & Marketing** are shifting into high gears now that the Mainnet is live. AIONEX, EDCON & CONSENSUS 2018 have put AION on the radar of the media. Matt Spoke is slowly becoming crypto's poster boy as seen on **[RBC's Disruptors Panel](https://youtu.be/M_TntY4n-QY)**. It's only a matter of time before the mainstream media finds out about AION. **6. AION is introducing Real Technological Break-throughs with the [first Cross-Chain bridge](https://youtu.be/9RpXFt1wbe4)** that completely moves tokens seamlessly between different blockchains using the Burn/Mint mechanism, unlike all Dapp platform projects since Ethereum that are still simple blockchain 2.0 platforms with no cross-chain capability or Atomic Swap projects that only transfer value between chains, but come with major limitations. Another important point that gets forgotten in the **Aion vs other interoperability projects** is that Aion is all these **[3 things at the same time](https://youtu.be/WEhsgldkE80?t=4m24s)**: * **I. Dapp platform with its own Virtual Machine** * **II. Router that transfers value & logic between networks:** **. IF THIS** happens on blockchain A **. THEN THAT** should happen on blockchain B * **III. Framework for Spoke chains that can scale infinitely to achieve unlimited TPS** (This will slowly render current single-chain scaling solutions futile & will put an end to their TPS arms race, as Dapps will want to scale & become interoperable & accessible to users of any network rather than isolated within one single blockchain) AION is increasingly recognized as the leader of Interoperability **—the holy grail of blockchain tech—** that will solve scalability, privacy & isolation issues to unlock the true potential of Distributed Ledger Technologies. ***"This is the internet, decentralized."*** **7. METCALFE’s LAW** states that the value of a network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users of the system (n2). [This was proven repeatedly in the growth patterns of fat protocols like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Neo](https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1567422317300480). Metcalfe’s Law favors interoperability projects even more, because **[Aion native tokens have utility](https://i.imgur.com/hqdppuf.jpg) far [beyond the main Aion-1 blockchain](https://i.imgur.com/ryLA7Yc.jpg)**: * Main Aion-1...
