Daily Cryptocurrency News - 12th November 2018

Here are the most important headlines of 12th November 2018 in the cryptocurrency space: IOTA Invited To The Frankfurt European Banking Congress, Bosch & IOTA Explained It seems like IOTA will have a productive November. Among the top speakers from the financial sector - there’s also a representative of IOTA. Dominik Schiener, the Co-founder of IOTA token will talk at the Economic Congress Germany. The topic of the discussion will be about the chances of DLT for companies - more exactly: The Blockchain Revolution - a Business Opportunity?. The news were officially reported by Sueddeutsche.de - a well known news website from Germany. These could be great news for IOTA - as Dominik is among the few speakers not working in the Financial sector only. Besides, this could be a great opportunity for IOTA to establish partnerships with multiple German businesses and grow IOTA to its full potential. Moreover, Bosch recently launched an article explaining everything that a person need to know about IOTA, XDK2MAM and Bosch XDK. In that article, Bosch explains how an ecosystem development bridges IOTA and the XDK. More details can be found in the Bosch’s article about IOTA and Bosch XDK. Decentralized Exchanges - The Latest SEC Victim As you may know, SEC doesn’t really like ICOs. But now, they move forward to another cryptocurrency related service - the decentralized exchanges. According to the U.S. Securities and Enforcement Commission, there was a chage of $400,000 against Zachary Coburn - the founder of EtherDelta. The reason for this was the fact that a decentralized exchange mainly ‘sells the same kind of tokens as the ICOs - the ERC20 tokens’ and SEC considers those as being ‘unregistered securities’. Coburn didn’t complained about this, and decided to pay the settlement fee. But this is the first time something like this happen on a decentralized exchange - and as SEC hinted: there are many others to follow. The Coburn’s cooperation lead to no other greater penalty - but left the cryptocurrency world asking - is this the end for decentralized exchanges? what strikes me most about the @SEC_News action against @EtherDelta is:- small disgorgement of $300k- only $75k penalty for operating unregistered exchange w >3M trades- co-operation listed as reason for not penalizing further overall, seems very ... positive? pic.twitter.com/ypmdOGSO6N — Meltem Demirors (@Melt_Dem) November 8, 2018 Probably not. But the future isn’t so bright for the decentralized exchanges - as most of them now need to implement a KYC procedure and delist any token with a security-like property. ShaepShift and IDEX became the first ones that adapt with this news, introducing KYC rules to their peer-to-peer exchanges. Even if the decentralized exchanges will still be active in the future, the fact that the anonymity part will disappear is not bringing any joy to the crypto communities. Japan’s GMO - Massive Q3 Performance on Crypto-Related Businesses The Japanese GMO launched its Q3 report today, 12th November 2018. Even though the market seems to be on a lower level than last year’s bull run - the cryptocurrency part of GMO is growing steady.

GMO coin - an exchange platform launched by GMO - now have 208,000 users trading about 89 Billion yen ( $781 million) only in October The profit is up 34.4% , speaking from a quarter on quarter basis The October mining hashrate was 674 petahash per second (PH/s) - but they’re planning to reach 800 PH/s until the end of 2018 Company changed their ticket from GJY to GYEN GMO also reported the creation of the cryptographic stablecoin in early October - available for international trading in 2019. This stablecoin will be tied to the JPY pair - being the first one in its existence. More details about GMO can be found in the ‘GMO Q3 Report‘ The Coinbase Bull Effect - Zcash, Stellar & Cardano Slowly Increase In Value After the successful listing of 0x and BAT - Coinbase is now preparing to list ZEC, XLM and ADA.This lead to an increase in trading volume as well as a small increase in price for these cryptocurrencies, as investors are preparing for the Coinbase listing effect - a small bull run followed by a slow decrease. Since 0x was listed on Coinbase, Cardano (ADA) saw an increase in price from $0.069 to an high of $0.08 and is now trading at $0.076 - with a 1% increase for today. The trade volume for Cardano (ADA) for today is a $24.7 Million - a massive increase from the $13-$18 million prior to 0x being listed to Coinbase. Stellar Lumens decreased to $0.20 on the date when 0x was listed to Coinbase, but increase by 20% in only a matter of days. Stellar Lumens reached today a peak for October and November, reaching a value of $0.284 - a 30%+ increase since 0x was listed on Coinbase. The trading volume

Riding on Coinbase Listing Update, Stellar Gains Fifth Spot Leaving Behind EOS

Stellar Lumens or XLM has become the fifth largest cryptocurrency by winning over EOS. It stands with market cap $5,093,506,793 as against $4,915,473,123 of EOS. Factors leading to Stellar’s win over EOS Coinbase has recently announced the listing of several new assets to its exchange which also includes Stellar. It announces the listing of Cardano (ADA), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC) and Ox (ZRX). Earlier this week, Stellar Development Foundation heads up for the biggest airdrop in crypto history. Interestingly, the total of $125 million worth of Stellar Lumens (XLM) will be released as a give away to its blockchain wallet users. This has definitely risen up the XLM market to interesting highs as more people are showing interest, seeing quite a big fund for giving away. Yet another reason that marks Stellar on top than EOS is “Fake EOS wallet on Google Play”. EOS RIO, EOS developers has been seen warning its users to save from the use of fake version of its App on Google Play, which has negatively affected the volume of EOS cryptocurrency. Since the market is volatile in nature, one cannot definitely state the literal stand of any cryptocurrency. It is however interesting to see whether the price of Stellar is influenced by $125 million airdrops or Coinbase listing announcement or spotlight of Fake EOS wallet on Google Play. Will stellar sustain its position against EOS. Let us know in comments below. The post Riding on Coinbase Listing Update, Stellar Gains Fifth Spot Leaving Behind EOS appeared first on Coingape.

Monero (XMR) topples Tether (USDT), BAT falls further by 6%

Something interesting has been going on in the cryptocurrency market in the last 24hrs. Monero (XMR) as of yesterday was the world’s tenth largest cryptocurrency token, in a twist of events in a 24hr time period, the token has not only squashed its opponent Tether (USDT) to become the ninth largest cryptocurrency bay a large margin but has also attained an impressive price volume while it gathers momentum to overthrow its next competitor. As of Nov 11th, Monero had descended by 2.67% and was trading at a price of $103.36. Right above Monero, Tether’s trading price sat at $0.998064 after attaining slight gains of 0.38%. It didn’t take too long for Monroe to crawl its way up once its trading volume began to swell. The token moved up by a percentage of 2.10, pushing its trading price to $105.80. An upsurge in trading volume kicked Monero’s marketcap from $1.71 billion to $1.75 billion against Tether token whose market cap was at $1.77 billion but has now declined to $1.69 billion. Traders from exchange giants Binance and Bithumb can be credited for the token’s current trading price. Bithumb trading pairs against the South Korean Won (KRW) totaled at $530.49 million, while Binance trading pairs of Monero against Bitcoin rounded up at $4.30 million. Cardano (Ada) which has fallen by 1.61% might be knocked out by Monero as the token continues to skyrocket. Meanwhile, BAT has continued to suffer huge losses since its listing on both CoinbasePro and Coinbase.com. The token has moved from the 29th spot in the last seven days to sit at the 34th position. From a trading price of $0.316637 upon Pro’s listing, BAT now trades at $0.249006 as of this writing. Declining by 4.43% in the last 24hrs, BAT is still struggling to maintain stability.

‘Coinbase Effect’ in Action: Cardano, Zcash and Stellar Prices Get a Boost Prior to Listing

CoinSpeaker ‘Coinbase Effect’ in Action: Cardano, Zcash and Stellar Prices Get a Boost Prior to Listing Coinase has always tried to increase the number of opportunities for its customers. Recently, the largest US exchange listed Basic Attention Token (BAT) on its trading platform and apps and opened trading for 0x (ZRX), which became the first ERC-20 token listed on the platform. After these annoucements, investors have cheered up and are currently anticipating the exchange’s support for further cryptocurrency integrations. In this regard, prices of some coins have started to surge. In particular, Cardano (ADA), Zcash (ZEC), and Stellar (XLM) are enjoying growth. Cardano Price Movement Cardano (ADA) saw a 3.5% hike on Sunday. The value of ADA jumped from $0.074438 up to $0.077107, then pulled back to the $0.75 range. Later, the price levelled off. Trade volumes were relatively low for ADA, rising from $13-18 million, with Binance’s ADA/BTC pair accounting for over 20% of the action alone. The coin’s current price makes up $0.0754, its market capitalization is $1.9 billion. Zcash Price Movement Zcash (ZEC) is a cryptocurrency aimed at using cryptography to provide enhanced privacy for its users compared to other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. The privacy-focused cryptocurrency surpassed $140 last week, demonstrating a staggering 21.7 increase in price in a two-week span. Over the last 24 hours, the currency lost 4.14% in value. Currently, its price is $125.62 per coin, market capitalization is $6.5 billion. Stellar Price Movement Stellar (XLM), which has been affected by massive volatility in the forever-lasting bear market, has experienced a 5-percent boost last week due to speculations about upcoming Coinbase listing. The fourth most-traded asset on Binance, just after Bitcoin [BTC], Bitcoin Cash [BCH] and Ethereum [ETH], Stellar maintained its price steadily at $0.2691 and a market cap of $5.09 billion yesterday. Later, the coin faced a mild bump and the market cap got a push up to $5.14 billion and the price also rose up to $0.2715. Further, the price and the market cap both took a hit and went down to $0.2633 and $4.98 billion accordingly. The 24-hour trade volume rose up by 25.8% during this time period. At the moment of writing, Stellar’s market capitalization makes up $5.17 billion. Its price is $0.2736 per coin. The supply for the asset comes mostly from Binance’s platform (approximately 32%) and Upbit exchange (about 9% of the total volume). What’s in Store for Cardano, Zcash and Stellar? Before the listing, both BAT and 0x nearly doubled in value against both the US dollar and Bitcoin (BTC). However, after the official listing by Coinbase Pro and Coinbase.com, the currencies suffered a drop. BAT decreased by over 32, while ZRX began a steep descent after a 8-percent surge. Such a performance demonstrated that price movements were caused by Coinbase listing. It is not yet clear, whether Cardano, Zcash and Stellar will be integrated into the exchange, but such a probability is quite high. The Coinbase listing is a confirmation that the token is not considered a security by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The listing gives a way to other exchanges to accept and integrate assets. Currently, the U.S. SEC is adding demands for tokensto be considered as securities. Recently, SEC charged EtherDelta, Ethereum-based decentralized crypto exchange, for running unregistered securities exchange. ‘Coinbase Effect’ in Action: Cardano, Zcash and Stellar Prices Get a Boost Prior to Listing

Cryptocurrency Trading Update: Minimal Momentum on Monday Markets

FOMO Moments Monday movement is lacking on markets; Stellar making gains, Bitcoin Cash and BAT getting battered. There was no further momentum over the weekend and crypto markets have continued to slowly slide back this Monday morning. Total market capitalization is still over $210 billion, but only just, having lost almost $10 billion since Wednesday’s peak last week. Bitcoin’s failure to make any progress above $6,400 has kept the rest of the crypto markets flat. BTC is currently trading at $6,395 but analysts predict bullish upsides leading up to its rival, Bitcoin Cash’s hard fork on the 15th. Ethereum has remained immobile and stuck around the same level, $210. The top ten is predominantly red at the moment as traders in Asia have been selling all day. Bitcoin Cash is taking the biggest dive with 7% down to $510. Despite the looming hard fork, BCH has dumped 20% in less than five days. Other losses in the top ten are tiny, with Litecoin down almost 2%. Stellar is actually making a gain at the moment with 3% to $0.275, and Monero is also up 2% taking XMR to $105. In the top twenty things are similar with only a percent or two movement in either direction. Zcash is the worst performer in that section at the moment with a 4% slide to $125, Tron is also down over 2% to $0.022. The day’s big pump is coming from MOAC which has surged 23% at the time of writing. Insight Chain has also entered the top one hundred and is up 9% at the moment. Very few other altcoins are making any significant gains today. Getting dumped along with BCH is Eternal Token and Veritaseum both down over 7% on the day. BAT and Siacoin are also having a bad day with over 6% losses since the same time yesterday. Total crypto market capitalization has declined almost one percent since Sunday and is currently at $211 billion. A $3 billion pump a few hours ago looked promising but all gains since then have been lost once again. Trade volume remains at around $12 billion on the day and the sideways consolidation continues. 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.

Cardano, Stellar Lumens, and Zcash Upswing Before Coinbase Listing; Stellar Surges by 27%

Cardano (ADA), Zcash (ZEC), and Stellar (XLM) have made significant gains as the crypto community anticipates additional crypto integrations on Coinbase. This follows the listing of Basic Attention Token (BAT) and 0x (ZRX) on Coinbase. Since Coinbase listed BAT on November 2, XLM has surged by 27% from $0.22 to $0.28. However, analysts fear that ADA, ZEC, and XLM might follow in BAT’s suit as its value increased before the listing only to plummet by 32% after the official listing. (KE)

Daily Cryptocurrency News - 11th November 2018

Here are the most important headlines of 11th November 2018 in the cryptocurrency space: Ethereum’s Constantinople Upgrade - Possible to Happen In January Ethereum enthusiasts have something to be happy about. In the last meeting, there were two dates proposed for the future Constantinople upgrade - January 12th and January 16th. The dates were set to be at that time so that the holiday season would pass. If this is a viable option (can’t completely judge the overall effort needed to get this in place + communicate this), I would like to make the following adopted timeline suggestion: December 10th (Monday), 2018: Start of a new PoW testnet, deprecate Ropsten January 16th (Wednesday), 2019: Fork on the new testnet February 12th (Tuesday), 2019: Fork on mainnet This Ethereum upgrade will introduce five Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP) that could surely improve the network. The Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP) are the following: EIP 145: Introduces Native bitwise shifting instructions which are more efficient for processing transactions on the network EIP 1218: Allows blocks to be directly aware of block hashes much older than the current hash EIP 1014: to implement scaling based upon state channels and off-chain transactions EIP 1052: optimizes large-scale code execution on the network EIP 1283: proposes the reduction of excessive gas costs where it does not match how most implementation works Circle Invest Adds Basic Attention Token To Its Platform Circle recently decided to list Basic Attention Token (BAT) on its platform. Great news for BAT as this comes at only a few days since it was listed on Coinbase. Not a surprise for everyone though. Circle and Coinbase are partners in the Centre Venture. Centre was created to increase the adoption of the ‘stablecoins’. Circle’s own stablecoin, USDC, was listed last month on Coinbase. In order for a cryptocurrency to be listed on Circle, it should meet the ‘Circle Asset Framework’, as BAT token did before listing. Circle, which also owns Poloniex exchange, was mention by The Office of the Attorney General of New York for having transparent listing standard. Circle’s head of legal & business affairs Claire Wells declared for Cryptoglobe that the company traders over $2 Billion OTC. Moreover, even if the price had a decline, Brendan Eich pointed out that BAT is in discussions with a large publishers which will work exclusively with Brave. Alex Gedevani believes that the website that Brave will have a partnership with its Imgur - and he wrote a detailed article about it on his Medium blog. Bitcoin ATM’s Available in 4,000 Locations Globally Even though if the Bitcoin price is on a continuous decrease since the beginning of 2018 - the adoption is slowly increasing. At the end of November, there’s a number of 4,000 ATMs expected to be live all around the world. According to CoinAtmRadar, there are 3989 Crypto ATMs available right now - with over 75 Countries that have at least 1 ATM, 40 Producers and 515 Operators. The number of Crypto ATMs increased by almost 1,000 since May 2018 and by over 3,000 since January 2017. The continent with the most crypto ATMs is North America - with over 71.3% of the market, followed by Europe. Another interesting fact is that 6 in 10 machines support different altcoins. Most popular altcoins among ATMs are: Litecoin, Ethereum and Bitcoincash. Also, 4 in 10 ATMs allow users to both buy and sell cryptocurrencies. The downside of ATMs - the fees. The average fee of buying cryptocurrency is a huge 8.85%. Selling it have a fee of 7.9% - a little lower, but still too much. For more details, you can check Bitcoinist’s article. Private Blockchains - Compatible with European’s GDPR According to a research published on 6th November - Private blockchains could be compatible with the latest European privacy rules. The study was conducted by Queen Mary University of London and Cambridge University, UK. GDPR ( General Data Protection Regulation ) act is a legislation that regulates the storage of personal data for all the EU individuals. According to the act, the ‘controllers’ ( such as banks or even a website where you’ve submitted your email) are obliged to keep you data private - otherwise, they could receive a fee of 20 million Euro or 4% of global turnover(whichever is higher) . The study claims that private blockchains could fall under these rules and be treated as ”controlelrs” as they handle sensitive data about persons from Europe. “There is a risk that this legal uncertainty will have a chilling effect on innovation, at least in the EU and potentially more broadly. For example, if all nodes and miners of a platform were to be deemed joint controllers, they would have joint and several liability, with potential penalties under the GDPR.” But, there’s a solution though. The blockchain operators could act like “processors” instead and let the users control their data. As an example, the perfect case would be a blockchain-as-a-s

Cryptocurrency Price Analysis for the week November 05 to November 11

EtherDelta Founder Charged by SEC For Operating Unregistered Securities Exchange. Bitcoin Cash Fork arriving on November 15 be ready as the BCH community drama continues. Vitalik Buterin Says Ethereum’s 1000x Capacity Upgrade “Not So Far Away”.Winklevoss Twins Sue Charlie Shrem Over 5,000 “Missing” Bitcoin. Google’s Sundar Pichai says his 11-Year-Old Son Is Ethereum Miner. Basic Attention Token Price Plummets as Coinbase Trading Triggers Massive Selloff Among major news this week, the United States Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced formal charges against EtherDelta founder Zachary Coburn for operating an unregistered national securities exchange. The SEC order explains that EtherDelta facilitates the trading of ERC20 tokens, many of which they deem to be securities. The charge comes on the heels of the 2017 DAO Report. This report outlines certain types of digital assets that the SEC considers to be securities, including DAO tokens. It’s implied that at least some of the tokens being traded on EtherDelta fell into this category. Over the last 18 months, users on EtherDelta performed more than 3.6 million trades, with many involving security-classified tokens. Well, the 15th is arriving and so is the Bitcoin Cash Fork. Bitcoin Cash hard fork will mean two separate and independent BCH blockchains and in result two coins. Bitcoin Cash was the result of a divided community on increasing the block size of the Bitcoin (BTC). And now, Bitcoin Cash is trading the same waters. Twice in a year, Bitcoin Cash undergoes a hard fork for protocol upgrades which goes unnoticed. However, this time the community has failed to come to a consensus and is divided over the future of Bitcoin Cash blockchain. Seems like Controversial and untrusted figure in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community Cobra Bitcoin may prove to be the saving grace for the network’s future, after a highly contentious dispute between Bitcoin ABC and nChain threatens to split BCH into competing chains ahead of a scheduled hard fork. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin used his keynote speech at Devcon 4, Ethereum’s annual developer conference, to unveil a roadmap for the evolution of the platform to Ethereum 2.0, which, among other things, will see the protocol upgraded to the proof-of-stake model. While the Ethereum community has been delaying timelines of their critical launches, Vitalik assured that Ethereum 2.0, Ethereum’s 1000x Capacity Upgrade, was “not far away” From the courtrooms this week, Winklevoss twins filed a lawsuit against Bitcoin pioneer Charlie Shrem, alleging that he stole 5,000 BTC that he was supposed to acquire and hold for them. According to the lawsuit, the twins gave Shrem $1 million to invest in Bitcoin in 2012, which would have been worth $5000 BTC then, and roughly $32 million now. This week, Sundar Pichai in his interview with The New York Times, Pichai revealed, “My son is 11 years old, and he is mining Ethereum and earning money.”Since Sundar Pichai, an Indo-American businessman, became head of Google, the company has maintained a love-hate relationship with cryptocurrencies. Google had initially announced a ban on cryptocurrency ads in June 2018, however, very next month the company partially removed the ban. Among Altcoins, After massive uptrends due to the Coinbase listing announcement, the actual trading of BAT has caused an adverse effect. After the coin went live on Coinbase, it plummeted by around 20 percent against the US dollar. What was important here is that the selloff of BAT on Coinbase demonstrated the typical buy the rumor and sell the news trend in the cryptocurrency market. Source: Coin360.io Bitcoin (BTC) The stability of Bitcoin continues this week as well as it was up just around 0.34% this week. The reported strength was yet in the stable zone. The prices hit the high point of USD 6,552.16 and the lowest point of USD 6,363.62 during the week. The exchanges that were more active, in volumes, with BTC across various pairs this week were, Bithumb (10.51%), Coinbit (9.23%), CoinBene (3.74%) Among prominent voices, Venture capital investor Tim Draper reaffirmed his prediction that the Bitcoin (BTC) price will reach $250,000 by 2022, during a panel discussion at the Web Summit summit conference Ethereum (ETH) Ether prices, on the top, this week were at USD 221.65 and were at lows of USD 206.57 staying not very far from the USD 200 support. The markets that were more active, in volumes, with ETH across various pairs this week were OEX (7.13%), BitForex (3.73%) and LBank (3.56%) Among news surrounding Ethereum, Erik Voorhees, CEO of ShapeShift told in an interview with CNBC Crypto Trader, that Ethereum [ETH] is better because Vitalik is involved Ripple (XRP) On the top, this week the prices of XRP were at USD 0.560547 and towards the bottom, it quoted USD 0.460769.

Basic Attention Token Price Plummet Continues as Technical Fundamentals Indicate More Pain

Even though a lot of people had high hopes or the Basic Attention Token price, things often turn out very differently. In the case of BAT this weekend, things are not looking all that great, especially because the price continues to take a battering in fairly quick succession. No new highs will be noted by the look of things, and it seems the Coinbase effect will keep dragging BAT down even further. Basic Attention Token Price Onslaught Continues It is rather crucial to see how things have evolved for BAT. This altcoin has garnered a lot of attention in recent weeks because it would get listed on Coinbase. That effectively pushed the price to very high levels, albeit most people know this couldn’t be sustained forever. Ever since trading on Coinbase, BAT has not regained the $0.3 level and continues to fall at an alarming rate. The past 24 hours have not provided any relief for BAT holders either. In fact, things continue to grow progressively worse, which is not exactly shocking either. In the case of the Basic Attention Token price, there is another 7.5% loss in USD value, as well as a 6% drop over both Bitcoin and Ethereum. The pump has legitimately come to an end, and damage control appears non-existent. For those who want to look for arbitrage opportunities, Basic Attention Token is well worth keeping an eye on. There is a direct trading opportunity between CoinDCX and CoinDelta, although it will not remain in place for a very long time. Even so, those who want to exploit this price gap can make some good money by buying into a falling currency. Hurry! 10% direct arbitrage in #BAT.If you buy BAT in BTC market from #CoinDCX and sell it on #CoinDelta in INR market, you can make a profit of 10%. — KoinKnight (@KoinKnight) November 11, 2018 Thankfully, some people look at Brave and BAT for what it is trying to achieve, rather than just the price itself. Soupernerd confirms the Brave browser has a ton of potential, and the Basic Attention Token integration only makes it more appealing. Even so, users need to figure out ways to earn these tokens, which is one of the project’s main selling points. So far @brave browser is amazing and youtube feels like it used to. Refreshing. Now I just need "earn #BAT for allowing advertisements" function to release so I can check it out! Maybe with a scale of 1-10 of what threshold of ads I'm willing to have in the browser. Nice Job. pic.twitter.com/BFPDOlo1hU — SouperNerd 𓅓 (The Jinn Who Loves You) (@SouperNerd) November 11, 2018 For those who want to look at technical indicators, there does not appear to be something to be excited about just yet. The expected support level of 4.158 Satoshi has fallen in very quick succession, thus a descent to 2.753 Satoshi is not unlikely. That would represent another 30% price drop for BAT, which is quite worrisome. #BAT The first zone from which growth can begin - 4158 sats, if buyers show interest, the correction will end at this level, and if it breaks down, a long descending movement of up to 2753 sats is waiting for us.#altcoins #trade #chart #ta #fa #short #long #coinbase #list $BAT pic.twitter.com/vpRjxvY56a — Bullish Power (@bullishpower) November 11, 2018 All of the signs point toward further pressure on the Basic Attention Token price. It is not something investors want to see, but there is nothing one can do about this situation under the current circumstances. For now, it may be best to avoid this market altogether and wait for an even lower price to buy in. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

This Week In Crypto: Swift, Bitcoin, Ripple, Stellar, Tron, and Ethereum

The first 10 days of November have been quite eventful in the cryptocurrency space. The market has been bumpy as usual but the crypto community is looking forward to something interesting in the future. For those who missed the fun though, we have handpicked the best and most interesting stories for you and here they are. SWIFT Despite Ripple’s popularity in transboundary payments, The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, SWIFT, has denied rumors that it intended to integrate with Ripple or use its payment protocol. While most payment companies see Ripple as a threat to SWIFT, there have been speculations that the two could collaborate to upgrade SWIFT’s payment system. Apparently SWIFT is doing a solo upgrade which it has instructed all its users to upgrade to, a new platform known as Swift GPI. Ripple staff is said to have been attending SWIFT functions and there has been some intercompany movement of the same but it doesn’t seem like the relationship will go beyond that as far as SWIFT is concerned. Bitcoin Bitcoin has received its fair share of the rough market since October, however, it experienced a significant price surge within the last week. The surge was substantial, taking the price from ~$6200 to over $6,500. Meanwhile, concerning the price of the asset, Venture Capital investor Tim Draper is still bullish and optimistic that the asset will reach $250,000 by 2022 despite the fact that his prediction of the same price for April 2018 did not come true. In Draper’s view, the huge surge can only happen if bitcoin can be used on a day to day basis to buy Starbucks Coffee etc. Also, a large transaction volume was recorded coming from South Korea based exchange Bithumb. The exchange recorded a transaction of up to $666,658,444 from Bitcoin to Korean Yon. The large and growing transaction volume if sustained is expected to push Bitcoin’s price to $6,800 soon. Ripple (XRP) The cryptocurrency with an unusual success in cross-border payments is taking its efforts to expand its reach to the next level by collaborating with NASDAQ. This collaboration is expected to be concluded by 2019 when NASDAQ is set to launch its cryptocurrency platform. When sealed, the partnership between the two is expected to bring Ripple to the same level with leading crypto exchange Coinbase and possibly beat it. Stellar XLM Stellar is another prominent cross-border payment token. The company is moving to list its token on the Blockchain wallet. XLM will be the fourth crypto asset listed on Blockchain after Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash. In view of the listing, Stellar will be doing an airdrop for Blockchain’s 30 million users. This is said the be the biggest airdrop ever, with $125 million worth of XLM to be given out. Tron (TRX) The hot cryptocurrency and blockchain company has achieved many great feats in the year, this month with smart contracts. It has only been two weeks since Tron launched its smart contracts and it already hit 12 million smart contract triggers on its network as announced by the founder and CEO Justin Sun. Sun had announced in October that Tron was going to launch Odyssey 3.1 which would make way for smart contracts on its network. According to Sun, the expected number of smart contracts on the network by the end of the year is 50 million. Will they achieve it? Only time will tell. Ethereum In the last week, Ethereum, just like Bitcoin, experienced a significant surge even more than Bitcoin by 5.9% to reach over $221 from $190. Although it has dropped to $211 since the surge, it is still significantly higher than it was at the beginning of the week. On the contrary, Ethereum’s BAT token, though it experienced a similar surged, has experienced a “counter fall” resulting from a loss of up to $6 billion of its valuation within a 48-hour period in the week. It is said to have received the hardest hit any large or mid-cap token got within the week.

Crypto Week In Review: SEC Fines EtherDelta, Binance To Attract Institutions

The crypto market may have stagnated, but this industry’s innovators have continued to incessantly beat the “BUIDL” drum, as pro-crypto developments were as present as ever throughout the past week. Crypto-Friendly Governors Elected In Colorado, California To many crypto savants, the modern political scene, which promotes centralization and censorship in some cases, is far from a topic of importance. But, as Tuesday’s U.S. midterm results have rolled in, the ears of cryptocurrency enthusiasts have metaphorically perked, as it was revealed that two pro-Bitcoin/crypto politicians have been sworn into office in the nation’s highest levels of government. Colorado’s Jared Polis (Democrat), who is America’s first openly gay governor, was the first crypto-friendly politician to be elected into Congress. Polis, who is arguably one of the most progressive governors on America’s political stage, has long been a fan of cryptocurrencies and is open to aiding the asset class on a regulatory stage. In 2014, the Boulder, Colorado native explained that he would do everything in his power to hamper the propagation of anti-Bitcoin policies, whether it be through rallying against governmental agencies or touting the benefits of crypto assets and its associated technologies. And even in spite of the relative age of the aforementioned claim, the politician’s pro-crypto views have persisted well into 2018, even to this day. In February of this year, NewsBTC reported that the Colorado governor requested for Congress to draft a guideline for crypto holding disclosures. Although this could be seen as an anti-crypto move, especially considering that this industry values pseudonymity, at the time, the lawmaker claimed that the growing legitimacy of crypto necessitated the body to take appropriate action. Alongside Polis is Gavin Newsom (Democrat), one of the first politicians to open his war chests to accept Bitcoin (BTC). Newsom, similarly to Polis, is now governing California. Considering that California is a hotspot for innovation, with the Bay Area and Silicon Valley being world-renowned for its proclivity for all things tech (crypto included), Newsom’s office could catalyze the widespread use of blockchain technologies and crypto assets in the region. Although two is far from a crowd, and Newsom’s acceptance of BTC donations is far from all-in, these governors could be the match that sparks regulatory change in favor of crypto assets. Binance Aims To Attract Institutions Although Binance is primarily for being the biggest crypto exchange platform in the world, on Thursday, the Malta-based company revealed that it would be launching Binance Research, a division focused on providing consumers with “quality analysis on cryptocurrencies and the blockchain projects they represent.” The launch of its new arm, which was preceded by Binance Info and Binance Academy, will allow the company to embark further on its goal to spread the good word of blockchain technologies. And, as put by an official blog post pertaining to the matter: “The main goal is to increase transparency and accuracy of information in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space. We believe delivering consolidated, comprehensive reports for cryptocurrency tokens and projects will be a huge step forward in leading the blockchain community to deeper understanding and more insights.” Just a day after the startup’s aforementioned announcement, Binance revealed its plans to lay the groundwork for the arrival of institutional investors and the capital that they manage. In an announcement outlining Binance’s plans, it was explained that the firm intends to further its ambition to build the technological foundation for institutional adoption, while also offering unique benefits and rewards for Corporate Accounts. SEC Fines EtherDelta Founder, Regulatory Concerns Mount In a regulatory action straight out of left field, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has formally charged Zachary Coburn, the founder of EtherDelta, for operating an unregulated and unlicensed securities exchange. Per a press release from the governmental agency, EtherDelta’s move to support ICO Ethereum-based tokens, which the SEC classifies as securities as per the agency’s 2017 DAO report, resulted in this harsh regulatory stance. Although supporting ICO tokens may be fine in some cases, EtherDelta was never officially registered or licensed with the SEC. Stephanie Avakian, Co-Director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division, spoke on the matter, noting: “EtherDelta had both the user interface and underlying functionality of an online national securities exchange and was required to register with the SEC or qualify for an exemption.” Coburn will reportedly have to pay a $300,000 disgorgement fee, along with $13,000 in prejudgment interest and a $75,000 penalty, to satisfy the SEC’s needs. However, some have argued that Coburn essentially got off scot-free, as he was fined a total of $388,000 for facilit

Basic Attention Token (BAT) Creator Hints at Huge New Partnership

Brendan Eich, the creator of the Basic Attention Token (BAT) project and the Brave browser, has recently hinted about a huge new partnership that has the potential to bring 80 million new users to the platform. The tease came as Eich was discussing the two revenue streams offered by the BAT online publishing platform, ad revenue and a user-pays micropayments model, where he started ‘telling a story’ about a site that has 80 million unique adblocking visitors a month and the possibility of them ‘trying something’ with BAT that will convert those users to the Brave browser.

Coinbase.com Adds Brave’s BAT Leading to Traders ‘Selling the News’

Basic Attention Token (BAT) has created a name for itself thanks to revolutionizing and starting web 3.0 by being the native currency of the decentralized web browser Brave. Now it comes into mainstream trading by being listed on Coinbase a week after being listed on Coinbase Pro. Coinbase made the announcement, stating that its users can now buy, sell, trade and transact with BAT on its cryptocurrency exchange platform on desktop along with the mobile versions. However, BAT will not be available for trading for residents in the state of New York on both Coinbase and Coinbase Pro as of now. As per Coinbase’s current listing BAT is added in a list which includes, Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), USDC and ZRX. Coinbase is currently working on accelerating the crypto asset addition on its exchange platform. Coinbase added 0x in October, to start the initial stages of adding ERC-20 tokens. The same month concluded with an addition of Coinbase’s stablecoin with Circle called USDC which is pegged to the U.S Dollar. Zerocrypted Opinion - BAT being added on Coinbase Pro saw the price rising from $0.25 to $0.36 however following the announcement on Coinbase Consumer BAT fell by more than 8.5%. The primary reason was the cashing out of gains by investors. The phenomenon known as ‘buy the rumour, sell the news’ has repeated once again. People bought at the time of rumours that BAT will be included in Coinbase Consumer Currently at the time of writing BAT has seen a fall in price at $0.295685 as compared to $0.363909 about 15 hours back. With such patterns, it will be interesting to see what levels ZCash (ZEC) increases when listed on Coinbase PRO and then what levels it will fall after it is listed on Coinbase.com.

Basic Attention Token Nosedives 20% Amidst SEC Crackdown Concerns

The native cryptocurrency token powering the Brave browser, Basic Attention Token, has fallen 20% overnight over concerns stemming from the SEC’s recent crackdown. BAT Faces Deep Correction After Coinbase Listing Surge While Bitcoin and much of the rest of the cryptocurrency market continue to struggle to break out through long-term downtrend resistance, Basic Attention Token (BAT), has been on quite a run in recent weeks starting around the beginning of October in anticipation of a potential listing on San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase. BAT, which powers a crypto token economy through the Brenden Eich-developed Brave browser, started the month of October at roughly 16 cents, but has since more than doubled in value as Coinbase added the token for trading on its various platforms. BAT appeared unstoppable, reaching a price of 36 cents each at its recent peak. However, BAT is now correcting, plummeting over 20% overnight to 29 cents per token. Related Reading: BAT’s Brendan Eich Not Affected By Bear Market Coinbase listed BAT for trading last week, which helped to send the price of the token skyrocketing as retail investors FOMO-ed into the sub-$1 cryptocurrency. When a new coin gets listed on Coinbase, it often experiences a massive surge - such was the case with decentralized exchange token ZRX - followed by a large correction. However, BAT’s correcting is deeper than normal, suggesting there could be more at play than simple profit taking. Security Token Scare Sends Shockwave Throughout Crypto Landscape Basic Attention Token is an Ethereum-based ERC20 token. Yesterday, news broke that Zachary Coburn, founder of the decentralized cryptocurrency exchange EtherDelta was charged by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission for operating an unregistered securities exchange. Coburn was forced to settle with the SEC and agreed to pay $300,000 in disgorgement, $13,000 in prejudgment interest, and a $75,000 penalty. The SEC’s move was the first of its kind, and proves that not even decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges are safe from the chief financial regulator’s oversight. The SEC’s order specifically mentions that EtherDelta’s users made over 3.6 million trades of “ERC-20 tokens, including tokens that are securities under the federal securities law.” The mere mention that the SEC might view certain ERC20 tokens as securities has been enough to instill investors with fear, and may be the reason for the aggressive selloff BAT is currently experiencing. The SEC views most cryptocurrencies born from initial coin offerings (ICOs) to be securities, but has since clarified that both Bitcoin and Ethereum are not deemed as such. However, the SEC has left investors uncertain about any coins beyond the top two by market cap. BAT is considered a utility token, as it’s used to power the Brave browser, but did indeed start out as an ICO. The BAT ICO famously sold out in only 30 seconds, raising $35 million in the process. The fact that BAT is an ERC20 token born from an ICO, could make it a potential target for the SEC, and that fear is enough for investors to begin dumping their BAT holdings.

The company announced in a blog post that it is adding BAT to Circle Invest, bringing the tally of cryptocurrencies supported by the investment platform to a dozen. As a result, users can purchase BAT separately or as part of a crypto portfolio. The creators of BAT are behind the Brave web browser, which is known for blocking ads and rewarding publishers in the BAT token. In recent days, crypto exchange Coinbase announced that it has listed BAT to both its professional trading platform and Coinbase.com as well as the mobile apps. BAT, which is the No. 30 cryptocurrency based on market cap, is experiencing some profit taking, with the coin down more than 16% in the last 24-hour period. (GT)

Daily Berminal Brief: Bitmain Plans to Benefit from the Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork and Bitcoin Drops Below $6,500

The State of The Market — November 9, 2018 BTC: $6,393.37 (-1.15%) ETH: $210.34 (-1.49%) XRP: $0.5049 (+0.14%) The overall cryptocurrency market has seen a pullback in prices following recent gains, as the total market cap has dropped more than $5 billion in the last 24-hours. The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped by 1.15% and currently trades at $6,393.37 while Ethereum (ETH) has shed 1.49% and is trading at $210.34. XRP pulled back slightly, but still trades above $0.50. Currently, the total market cap is $212.9 billion. In other news, Bitmain is rushing to deploy 90,000 S9 Antminers ahead of the Bitcoin Cash hard fork on November 15 and executives from VanEck remain calm and confident about the prospects of the SEC approving a Bitcoin ETF. 1) The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has filed charges against EtherDelta founder Zachary Coburn for operating an unregistered exchange. The decentralized exchange (DEX) allowed users to exchange Ethereum-based tokens without needing to register accounts or turn their private keys over to the exchange wallet. The SEC claims that EtherDelta illegally permitted users to trade tokens which are classified as “securities” by federal law. The SEC’s co-director of the Enforcement Division said, “EtherDelta had both the user interface and underlying functionality of an online national securities exchange.” EtherDelta’s failure to register with the SEC or qualify for an exemption meant the DEX was in breach of federal law. Coburn has agreed to pay a total of $388,000 in fines but has not admitted or denied the SEC’s findings. 2) Coinbase announced on Twitter that it is adding support for Basic Attention Token (BAT) to its iOS and Android mobile apps as well as Coinbase.com starting today. Earlier this month, the exchange added BAT to its professional trading platform Coinbase Pro, and support was widely expected to follow for the mobile apps, which is what today’s announcement was about. BAT is available to traders in most jurisdictions with the exception of New York. Coinbase recently restructured its listing process to accelerate the addition of more coins. 3) Cobinhood (COB), a cryptocurrency service platform and exchange that offers zero-fee trading, recently announced the addition of four stablecoins to its platform: the Gemini Dollar (GUSD), MakerDao (DAI), Paxos Standard Token (PAX), and TrueUSD (TUSD). The platform explained that each coin offered distinctly different characteristics to the overall crypto space, which is the reason for multiple stablecoins being added at the same time. There has been a flurry of stablecoins released in recent months, leading to the possibility that 2018 will be known as ‘the year of the stablecoin.’ (RS)

Basic Attention Token Price Plummets as Coinbase Trading Triggers Massive Selloff

Even though plenty of people had high hopes for Basic Attention Token, the market’s true colors are becoming apparent. After massive uptrends due to the Coinbase listing announcement, the actual trading of BAT has caused an adverse effect. A massive dip in USD, BTC, and ETH value has been recorded over the past few hours, and things are only growing worse. Basic Attention Token Price Goes Belly Up It is quite evident the demand for Basic Attention Token is not what most people expected whatsoever. After a few weeks of solid upward price momentum, things have significantly turned around. While that doesn’t necessarily mean BAT will not go through another uptrend in the future, it is evident the current price is closer to reflecting the real value of Basic Attention Token. Over the past 24 hours, there has been a 16% net loss in BAT’s USD value. Combined with a 15% loss over both Bitcoin and Ethereum, things are not necessarily looking all that great just yet. In fact, there are plenty of warning signs things might take another turn for the worse moving forward. The demand for BAT simply is not there now that the asset is effectively trading on Coinbase, for some unknown reason. As is usually the case, there is a genuine excitement when an exchange announces they will list a specific token. In the case of Basic Attention Token, its announced listing on Coinbase has been pretty significant. Unfortunately, it seems things have turned around now that the trading has effectively commenced. That is not uncommon among altcoins, as speculators buy the hype and sell the news, so to speak. BAT is now live at https://t.co/bCG11KveHS and in the Coinbase iOS and Android apps. Coinbase customers can log in to buy, sell, send, receive, or store BAT. https://t.co/YgLcxAaMiT — Coinbase (@coinbase) November 8, 2018 Despite the current Basic Attention price trend, it seems there are those who still remain confident things are looking pretty good. Although the views by Crypto Bushido are not positive per se, it is evident one has to acknowledge opportunities when they arise and disappear. That is rather unfortunate for BAT holders right now, but it is possible things will turn around fairly soon. Feels good to look at the coin you sold earlier and realize you made the right decision to sell. #BAT #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #altcoins #btc pic.twitter.com/kUTMgeptbS — Crypto Bushido(Heikin Ashi Strategy) (@get2knowcrypto) November 9, 2018 Mass Adoption, on the other hand, simply likes to state facts as they present themselves to him. In this particular case, the listing of Coinbase has become all but irrelevant due to how the markets has responded in the process. Most people’s hopes may have been crushed, but those with some knowledge knew all too well this reversal was bound to happen sooner rather than later. Considering the price of #BAT right now, it's pretty obvious that @Coinbase has become irrelevant. — Mass Adoption (@mass_adoption) November 9, 2018 Although Basic Attention Token still has plenty of trading volume right now, it is evident most holders want to sell, rather than buy. That momentum, so close to the weekend, is not exactly promising, but it is how things stand right now. Whether or not the BAT price can remain close to $0.3 or will drop to $0.25 in the coming days, remains difficult to predict. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Coinbase Adds Basic Attention Token (BAT) to Its Retail Trading Platform and Mobile Apps

CoinSpeaker Coinbase Adds Basic Attention Token (BAT) to Its Retail Trading Platform and Mobile Apps U.S.-based crypto exchange and wallet provider Coinbase has always been working on expanding opportunities and offerings for its customers. Now it has revealed its initiative to launch full trading of the Basic Attention Token (BAT) on its trading platform and in both the Android and iOS apps. BAT Listing Now customers of Coinbase will have a possibility to buy, sell, send, receive, or store BAT which has been added to the list of other eight currencies available. They are Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, ZRX and USDC. Nevertheless, the company warns that initially residents of the state of New York will not be able to carry out operations via Coinbase trading services, but BAT will be available for users living in most jurisdictions. According to the information revealed by the company, last week it initiated accepting inbound transfers of BAT to Coinbase Pro, nevertheless, BAT trading will be allowed only after the coin establish sufficient liquidity. By the way, BAT has become the second ERC-20 token to be listed by the company. As CoinSpeaker has reported earlier, the first one was 0x. The exchange says that BAT token is to go through four stages of listing. The first stage that is already initiated is “transfer-only,” at this stage, users can transfer BAT into Coinbase Pro accounts. The second one is “post-only” stage that will enable customers to post limit orders. Limit orders will start matching at “limit-only” stage and full access to BAT trading opportunities will be available at the final stage. New Approach to Listing The company claims that their initiative to add new coins to its platforms is its reaction to one of the most common requests that they receive from their customers who want to have an opportunity to work with a wider range of assets on Coinbase. “The new process begins with a form for issuers to submit assets for listing at Coinbase, which we will evaluate against our digital asset framework. The application form and the digital asset framework will be regularly updated, and our form will indicate the latest version of the framework we are evaluating against,” explained the company in its official blog post published on September 26. According to the company, their main aim at the current stage is to list all assets that correspond to their standards and meet all legal requirements as soon as it is possible. Such an approach can really significantly enhance trading opportunities that platform’s customers have. Impact on Prices Coinbase is a very strong player of the market that’s why there is little surprise that its activity with this or that coin may significantly influence its price. After the first announcement about adding of BAT was made, the coin gained nearly 20% over a 24-hour period. A similar story happened to INXT after it had become known that it would be possible to store INXT in safe Coinbase wallets. Over the previous seven-day period it managed to gain almost 40% against the fiat. Coinbase Adds Basic Attention Token (BAT) to Its Retail Trading Platform and Mobile Apps

Cryptocurrency Market Update: South Koreans Keeping Zcash (ZEC) Climbing

FOMO Moments Friday markets are still in decline; Zcash and Stellar opposing the drop, Dogecoin and BAT getting dumped. Yesterday’s decline has continued today though its momentum has slowed a little. Crypto market capitalization has fallen below $215 billion as all hopes of a real recovery have by now evaporated. Bitcoin has dropped almost a percent on the day taking it back down to $6,440. BTC is still consolidating in a channel between $6,300 and $6,600 where it has been since the end of September. Ethereum is also sliding back from its three week high and has dropped half a percent on the day to $213. Altcoins are still predominantly red as the selloff continues during the morning’s Asian trading session. There is only one beacon of green in the top ten this Friday morning and that is Stellar up over 5% to $0.263. The big airdrop from Blockchain.com appears to be driving momentum for XLM at the moment. The rest of the top ten are falling back with Monero losing the most at 3% to $107. The top twenty is also completely red aside from Zcash which has made 5.5% to take ZEC to $135. Trade volume has jumped from $110 million to $170 million with the majority of that, over 80%, on Bithumb in KRW at the moment. South Koreans are loading up on ZEC this morning. Maybe all the recent talk of zk-SNARKs has revived interest in this privacy-centric altcoin. Dash is the biggest loser shedding over 4% to $163, and the rest are falling a percent or two from yesterday’s levels. Today’s big fomo pump is Eternal Token surging 27% on the day. A patent application appears to be driving XET momentum right now. WAX is also pumping with a 16% gain and Decentraland is up almost 10% on the day. Getting beat up is BAT dropping 10% and Dogecoin falling 8%. Even a Coinbase listing is not enough for altcoins to cling on to their gains these days. Less than a percent has been dropped from total crypto market capitalization over the past 24 hours. Markets currently stand at just over $214 billion and the sideways channel oscillating between around $190 billion and $225 billion has been intact for over two months now. The bulls are not strong enough to force a breakout just yet as the bears keep pushing them back down. Bitcoin dominance has crept back over 52% once again as altcoins lose their latest gains.

BAT Goes Live On Coinbase Consumer, Falls 6%

Coinbase Adds Second (Third?) Ethereum-based Token As reported by Ethereum World News last week, Coinbase Pro, the San Francisco-based startup’s platform for professional traders, revealed support for Basic Attention Token, the digital asset of choice for the crypto-friendly Brave Browser. While the launch of the digital asset on Coinbase Pro was well-received by many, with the BAT/USDC pair opening its books on Thursday morning, it wasn’t clear when the Brave Browser-related token would be available on Coinbase Consumer (Coinbase.com) or through the startup’s iOS and Android applications. However, this changed on Thursday afternoon, as America’s largest crypto exchange issued a tweet and blog post to reveal that it was rolling out support for BAT on its consumer-centric platforms. BAT is now live at https://t.co/bCG11KveHS and in the Coinbase iOS and Android apps. Coinbase customers can log in to buy, sell, send, receive, or store BAT. https://t.co/YgLcxAaMiT — Coinbase (@coinbase) November 8, 2018 Per the post, starting on Thursday, Coinbase customers will be able to buy, sell, send, receive, and/or store BAT, alongside the other crypto assets that the platform supports — Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, ZRX, and USDC. While BAT will apparently be available for Coinbase’s “customers in most jurisdictions,” the asset will not be accessible for New York State residents, in spite of the fact that the startup recently received a green light from the region’s primary market regulator in regards to cryptocurrency custody. Closing the announcement, the $8 billion upstart restated its goal to “accelerate asset addition” in the near future, along with ensuring that crypto investors are educated about this industry, even in spite of its nascency and relative size to legacy markets. Coinbase’s move to add BAT comes just weeks after the firm unveiled support for ZRX, the 0x ecosystem’s native asset, and USDC, an up and coming stablecoin backed by both Coinbase and Boston-based, Goldman Sachs-endorsed Circle, a budding fintech startup. BAT Loses 6%, Dumps To 30 Cents BAT’s appearance on Coinbase Pro saw the asset see a monumental run-up, with the ERC20 token moving from $0.25 to $0.36 in a matter of the four days following the original announcement. This move amounts to a 40% gain, which was evidently a breath of fresh air in the dismal crypto market. However, in direct contradiction to the so-called “Coinbase Effect,” BAT fell (and fell hard) on the news that it was finally added to Coinbase Consumer. More specifically, the asset took a 10% haircut at one point, underperforming BTC and ETH by upwards of 6-7%. Although BAT has since recovered, returning to $0.314 as the crypto market underwent a short-term reversal, the popular altcoin is still down 6% in the past 24 hours. Following BAT’s interesting bout of price action, CryptoGainz, a crypto commentator on Twitter, noted that “based on this brutal dump, I think it’s fair to conclude that [ZCash] ZEC will unironically dump to zero on [its] Coinbase listing.” While his comment was likely made in jest, Gainz’s comment regarding the “anti-Coinbase effect” and the platform’s future listees may hold credence. But for now, as many await Coinbase’s next listing, there may be some time for investors to sit on their hands, so to speak.

Additionally, “Basic Attention Token radically improves the efficiency of digital advertising by creating a new token that can be exchanged between publishers, advertisers, and users,” the core idea of the cryptocurrency is keeping the investors interested and prices surging.

Basic Attention Token Price Rebounds as Coinbase FOMO Remains Tangible

As most of the top markets struggle for traction right now, speculators and traders are looking well beyond the top 20 for profits. Basic Attention Token is, once again, making some very strong moves. Its addition to Coinbase should occur later today, although the company has yet to communicate an official timeline in this regard. Basic Attention Token Price Rises Again It has been a wild ride for holders of the Basic Attention Token over the past few weeks. The imminent listing on Coinbase has many people excited, and the BAT price responded in kind. Even today, there is still plenty of market excitement to take into account, albeit those buying into the FOMO may not necessarily see the results they are looking for. Over the past 24 hours, the BAT price has risen by 7% in USD value, 8% over Bitcoin, and 9.5% over Ethereum. All of these gains are incredibly bullish, primarily because they are sustained by very little trading volume at this time. It seems to be a matter of time until the value surges to $0.4, although it is a bit early to say for sure. The big news of the day is how Coinbase will list Basic Attention Token this week. Many people expect that to happen today, although it may very well be later this week. Until the company makes an official statement, users need to remain patient first and foremost. BAT Will be made available on the website and the mobile applications in the coming days. Please also note that BAT is not yet available at https://t.co/MO27BEqMdL or in our iOS and Android apps. We will make a separate announcement when that occurs. #bat #Coinbase #BasicAttentionToken #xlm #ada #xrp #btc #eth pic.twitter.com/EApzbo79ic — Rodge_Amsterdam (@AmsterdamRodge) November 8, 2018 A very interesting trend has been noted by Istvan. He shares some interesting details as to how several ERC20 tokens are currently trading independently of Ethereum’s price momentum. Among those assets are Basic Attention Token and 0x, both of which have close ties to Coinbase at this time. A very interesting trend, although one that may not necessarily amount to any major changes moving forward. We note that the prices of at least ten tokens of the ERC-20 standard have recently “live their own lives”. The graph above shows that the tokens #BAT and #ZRX, which recently appeared in the Coinbase Pro listing, have completely ceased to correlate with the price of #Ethereum — istvan (@istvan33001710) November 8, 2018 For those looking at the charts form a technical analysis point of view, the current momentum certainly looks appealing. Although Crypto Ronny predicted a double dip and subsequent dip to 4,700 Satoshi, the market has rebounded strongly ever since. Ever since, it seems a new double top pattern has begun forming, although it remains to be seen if that will lead to another leg down over the coming hours. #BAT double top pattern on 1H chart! Target figure will be on 4700 sats (strong support too) #bat $bat #btc $BTC pic.twitter.com/c1YSnCCUDu — Crypto Ronny (@CryptoRonny5) November 8, 2018 While there is plenty of momentum associated with the Basic Attention Token price, one has to keep in mind buying in at the top is never a good idea. Granted, this token has a real-world use through the Brave browser. However, its price does not necessarily reflect the usability of the token in its current state.

Crypto Rally Hopes Quashed as Markets Dump Again

FOMO Moments The bears are back in play; Dash surviving the dump, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, VeChain sliding. Rally anticipations have been quashed once again as markets are dumping. Just when a glimmer of hope started to shine in crypto land, the bears come back out and defecate all over it. Total crypto market cap has shed $4 billion in the past four hours, dropping back to around $215 billion. Bitcoin is currently holding its place with only a minor dip back below $6,500. It is currently trading at $6,480 but further losses may be imminent if the bearish pressure is sustained. As quick as it climbed over the past few days, Ethereum has fallen. ETH is currently down 2% back to $214 as it failed twice to break resistance at $220. Altcoins are suffering today, all red and wiping out gains made since the weekend. In the top ten Bitcoin Cash is falling fastest with a 5% slide to $586. Not far behind BCH are Litecoin and Cardano both losing 4% on the day. The rest in this group are down 2-4 percent since the same time yesterday. Only Dash is staying buoyant in the top twenty with a 3% climb to $173 while around it is a sea of red. Iota and VeChain are losing the most at around 4%, Tron and Nem not far behind. Getting a good dose of fomo in the top one hundred today is WAX and Polymath, both climbing around 7% on the day. BAT is also still trading strongly, up 6% following its addition to the Coinbase Pro exchange at the weekend. The big dumps are not that devastating at the moment with only two altcoins losing more than five percent; Electroneum and Bitcoin Cash. The entire table is predominantly red at the moment as markets suffer another attack of the bears. Total crypto market capitalization has fallen 1.8% on the day resulting in a $4 billion loss to $216 billion. This could be a natural correction from a bullish four days as traders take short term profits. Markets are still up 4% on the week and the trend is still rising providing there are no further losses. They have returned to the same level total market cap was at this time last month, the consolidation continues.

XRP Price Surge Good News for Stellar XLM Investors?

Stellar Lumens (XLM), XRP-The recent price surge for XRP, the third largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, could be a positive signal for Stellar enthusiasts and investors. While the two cryptocurrencies have long been pitted at odds, with a similar technology basis, overlapping leadership and development teams, and target customer base, the coins have also managed to benefit from positive traction generated by the one another. Following the boom in Bitcoin Cash pricing which took off over the weekend, XRP became the recipient of a massive price run which saw the currency jump over 10 percent on Nov 6. While BCH pricing was undoubtedly tied to the upcoming hard fork of the currency on Nov. 15, it also helped that popular U.S. based exchange Coinbase announced its support for the fork and newly produced coin, throwing its weight behind other major exchange players such as Binance and Bitmex. While several theories are floating as to the cause of XRP’s price surge, the boom in Bitcoin Cash created a ripple of price improvement for altcoins across the board. With XRP sitting on a greater than 90 percent loss since hitting $3.80 at the beginning of the year, some analysts have pointed out that the currency could be extremely undervalued at present, particularly with the new developments and stories of adoption that have continued throughout 2018. Stellar likely stands to benefit from both the renewed interest in XRP and the overall buoying effect of the crypto markets. For one, XLM has already had a boost in price following the addition of Basic Attention Token (BAT) on Coinbase, joining 0x as the second of five original currencies announced over the summer under consideration for listing. While 0x and BAT represent two of the smaller market coins of the five announced, Stellar has long been tabbed as a likely addition-making for the most high profile coin of the group. Not only has Stellar established ties to computing Behemoth IBM, but the currency has an appealing price and max supply that would add further diversity to limited offering by Coinbase. XLM, similar to XRP, has suffered from a precipitous drop in valuation throughout 2018. The announcement of a potential Coinbase listing has managed to keep the coin price stable over the last several months, as investors anticipate the value of the coin appreciating well beyond current levels in the event of a Coinbase addition. While that appears more iminent than ever, with the exchange announcing its commitment to supply many more currencies to customers, the coin could look for a boost in price in the interim if the entire crypto market moves towards a recovery. Excitement for Stellar development and the utility of the XLM coin has outpaced the market, with the coin employing many of the features that has made XRP so attractive to institutional buyers and those looking to use cryptocurrency as a cost-effective measure for moving money globally. XLM could benefit substantially from a Coinbase listing, in part from new exposure to the 13 million user base in addition to putting the brand under a spotlight.

Second Biggest Bank in Spain Loans $150 Million on Ethereum Blockchain The $35 billion market capitalization bank, BBVA, has recently approved a $150 million syndicated loan on the Ethereum blockchain. The syndicated loan is a loan too big for one party to lend. So, more parties contribute with a share so the borrower is able to take home a large amount of money, and the risk is divided among the lenders. Just to be clear, the BBVA didn’t offered the loan in Ethereum - it just used Ethereum blockchain for its immutability properties and time-stamped the date and a signed contract on it. The lender is Red Electrica,”a corporation which operates Spain’s national electricity grid”. The decision was explained by Ricardo Laiseca, Head of Global Finance at BBVA: “Everything is automatically recorded by the system, in terms of back office and operational costs,” More details about it on Finance Magnates MetaMask - Introducing the Privacy Mode If you’re a fan of dApps, you probably have Metamask installed.

Is Coinbase Trying to Disrupt Bitcoin’s Reserve Asset Status by Listing New USDC Pairs

In recent weeks two new cryptocurrencies have been listed on Coinbase, 0x and BAT. Both resulted in predictable pump and dumps immediately before and a few hours after the announcements. This is no surprise, but the fact that one of these two new listings is only available to trade in USDC could raise a few eyebrows. Stablecoins to disrupt Bitcoin’s dominance USD Coin, or USDC, is a dollar-pegged ERC20 stablecoin from Circle and Coinbase. It has been designed to rival Tether which has been embroiled in its fair share of controversy recently. According to the blurb on the website “CENTRE stablecoins are issued by regulated and licensed financial institutions that maintain full reserves of the equivalent fiat currency. Issuers are required to regularly report USD reserve holdings, and that information will be made available upon request.” According to Coinmarketcap USDC volume is currently $2.2 million with a market cap of $134 million, so still a long way off USDT. Coinbase Pro is now using USDC to facilitate trading on its exchange for US customers. Those in Europe and the UK on regular Coinbase will have Euros and GBP respectively. The notable thing now is that the latest newly listed cryptocurrency is ONLY available in USDC and not Bitcoin or fiat as has traditionally been the case. BAT was listed on Coinbase Pro over the weekend and the token predictably pumped 23% following the announcement. It is however only available in USDC which could be a sign of things to come when Coinbase lists more cryptocurrencies. The next most likely to be added to the platform are Stellar, Cardano and Zcash according company blog posts. Bitcoin has traditionally been the medium of choice for trading altcoins when fiat trading is unavailable. Some have observed that if the trend continues Coinbase could be trying to disrupt Bitcoin’s position as a reserve asset for the crypto space; Coinbase listed BAT only against USDC, not BTC. So if you wanna buy BAT (not that anyone should), you need to buy USDC first. Let's see if this trend continues with future pairs (or even existing ones), could be an attempt to disrupt BTC's status as reserve asset of this space. — Hasu (@hasufl) November 6, 2018 The battle for stablecoin supremacy has shifted gears in the last month with a new one appearing almost weekly. All of these fiat-pegged currencies are slowly weakening Bitcoin’s status as a crypto reserve for trading and hodling, but that maybe the intention of Coinbase and other exchanges such as Gemini. At the moment the majority of BAT trade is in BTC on Binance which has 65% of the total so there is no change as yet. However, if future pairs listed on Coinbase and other exchanges are only available in USDC, GUSD, or whatever the respective exchange is offering, then this could be the case. We will have to wait until the next announcement to see if this trend continues, which should not be that long.

Market News: Bitcoin and Ethereum Experience Price Gains

Bitcoin has seen slight gains in the past 12 hours, at 12: 00 AM ET (04:00 GMT) , Bitcoin moved by 1.8% to land at $6,569.2. Investors have long been anticipating an upsurge above the $6,400 mark for months now, but upon the big bulls delivery, it has fallen a little back to $6,521.88 according to data from coinmarketcap, just a little above its previous standpoint. With a market volume of $4.97 billion, Bitcoin has since totaled a 1.53% change in price to sit at $6529.52 as of this writing. Amidst Bitcoin’s gains, the U.S security exchange commission, (SEC) has ceased public comments on whether or not Bitcoin ETFs should be approved, and has since not disclosed any specific for the inception of the funds. The SEC has previously reported ; Accordingly, it is ordered, pursuant to the Commission Rule of Practice 431, that by November 5, 2018, any party or other person may file a statement in support of, or in opposition to, the action made pursuant to delegated authority. Ethereum also followed suit, moving way up with a lot more swiftness than Bitcoin, jumping from 5.9% to land at $221.79 at around (04:00 GMT). The token currently trades at $218.49. Litecoin also moved slightly by 3.4 to $55.665 but is trading at $55.32 at the moment. On the other hand, the Basic Attention (BAT) has dropped in its numbers since its listing on CoinbasePro. As of the announcement of the listing, BAT was ranked as the 29th largest cryptocurrency by coinmarketcap with a trading price of $0.316637 but was later overthrown by Lisk token which previously traded at $2.79 but is currently trading at $2.88.

BAT-ter Up! Coinbase Pro Now Supports Basic Attention Token (BAT) Trading

Coinbase Pro - an exchange designed for professional traders to buy and sell digital currencies - has launched full trading services for Basic Attention Token (BAT). People Are Seeking Variety Responding to a common customer desire, Coinbase Pro wrote on its official blog page: One of the most common requests we receive from customers is to be able to trade more assets on our platform. With the recent announcement of our new listing process, our customers can expect us to list more assets over time that meet our present standards. The organization had previously explained that trading BAT would be the new “norm” after November 2, and that deposits would be accepted for roughly 12 hours before full trading was enabled. Once sufficient liquidity was established, customers could trade their USD for USD Coin (USDC) - a new stablecoin supported by Coinbase - and begin trading on the BAT/USDC order book. BAT trading on Coinbase Pro is now fully live. The BAT/USDC order book are now in full-trading mode. Limit, market and stop orders are all now available. — Coinbase Pro (@CoinbasePro) November 5, 2018 How Does This Work? The BAT launch occurred in four different phases. The first was “transfer-only,” in which customers - beginning in early November - could transfer BAT into their Coinbase Pro accounts, though orders on BAT would remain unfulfilled for approximately 12 full hours. From there, the launch moved to phase two, entitled “post-only.” During this time, customers could post limit orders, though there would not yet be matches or completed orders, and order books would be in post-only mode for roughly one minute each. Third was “limit-only,” in which limit orders would begin matching while customers waited to submit their market orders. Order books would ultimately remain in limit-only mode for approximately ten minutes or more. Lastly came “full trading.” This was the final step in which full trading services became activated and were available to Coinbase Pro customers in most jurisdictions. Keeping an Eye on Things BAT trading still remains in its early stages, and executives are looking to test things out to see if customers benefit from the currency’s offerings. They’re also looking to keep the environment safe for customers by closely monitoring trading activity and taking quick action should an order or transaction ever became problematic. Coinbase Pro wrote: If, at any point, the BAT/USDC order book does not meet our assessment for a healthy and orderly market, we may keep the book in one state for a longer period or suspend trading as per our trading rules. Any other BAT order books we launch will also go through the same stages. Coinbase Pro has explained that while BAT trading is available to customers in most jurisdictions, residents of New York will be required to undergo a waiting period. In addition, BAT is not presently available on Coinbase.com or on the company’s iOS or Android applications, though the company is looking to change this soon.

Stellar Foundation to Airdrop $150 Million in XLM to Blockchain Wallet Users

The Stellar Development Foundation has partnered with the Blockchain Wallet to airdrop $125 Million worth of XLM to the users of the wallet. According to The Block, the first batch of XLM will be distributed this week to all who sign up to use the Blockchain wallet. The team at the Stellar Development Foundation is hoping that the partnership will further the adoption of XLM to rival other cryptocurrencies in the market. Jed McCaleb, co-founder of Stellar, had this to say about the airdrop: We believe that airdrops are central to creating a more inclusive digital economy. Giving away lumens for free is an invitation to communities to design the services they need. By working with Blockchain to increase the availability and active use of lumens on the network, we will increase the network’s utility by many orders of magnitude. $25 Worth of XLM Each With respect to the value of XLM being airdropped per user, the team at Blockchain wallet states that once identity has been verified after signing up on the wallet, $25 worth of XLM will be distributed to each individual. There is also a first-come first-served clause in the airdrop that states: Offer available until XLM giveaway supply is depleted. Limit of one XLM airdrop per person, unless participating in any bonus activities. A person can receive the XLM airdrop in only 1 Blockchain Wallet. XLM is provided on a first come first rewarded basis, with priority for those with the oldest, completed (i.e., accounts with a verified email address) Blockchain Wallets. Participants must have an eligible account, be willing to verify their identity, and reside in an eligible market or jurisdiction. The list of eligible countries is available here. Once the airdrop is received, the owner is free to use it how they see fit. Pending Coinbase Listing of XLM After the listing of Ox (ZRX) and Basic Attention Token (BAT) on the popular American trading platform of Coinbase, speculation is high that Stellar (XLM) is the next digital asset to be supported. Earlier on in the year, Coinbase had expressed interest in listing the following digital assets: ZRX, BAT, XLM, Cardano (ADA) and ZCash (ZEC). With ZRX and BAT being listed, the remaining three have been on the minds of many crypto traders. Looking at XLM, it might be the biggest gainer of the bunch with the double good news of a Coinbase listing and the XLM airdrop that is sure to ignite interest in the digital asset in the markets. What are your thoughts on the XLM airdrop? Do you plan on participating? Do you also believe XLM is next to be listed on Coinbase? Please let us know in the comment section below.

XRP, Bitcoin Cash [BCH] and Basic Attention Token [BAT] top the market over the week with double digit hike

The cryptocurrency market has seen a smooth and upward moving chart over the week with several major coins showing an impeccable performance in terms of price. The total market capitalization of the market has also increased significantly in the past week from $203 billion to $216 billion, at press time. The cryptocurrency community has witnessed an outstanding altcoin rally, wherein coins such as Cardano [ADA], Stellar [XLM], Tron [TRX], IOTA [MIOTA], and Bitcoin Gold [BTG] have surged by over 10% in the past week. However, this bull run has merely affected Bitcoin [BTC]. The market king has been constantly hovering around its $6,400 range throughout the week with not much variation in the price. The three coins which grabbed the attention of the cryptosphere include XRP, Bitcoin Cash [BCH] and Basic Attention Token [BAT] with 20.58%, 43.96% and 25.19% gain respectively, in the past 7 days. Bitcoin Cash [BCH] The upcoming hardfork of Bitcoin Cash has given a strong push to the market value of BCH over the past week. The cryptocurrency has topped the market list with a growth rate of 43.96% in 1 week. At the time of writing, BCH is trading at $600.73 with a market cap of $10 billion. The cryptocurrency continues to stay at the 4th position by market cap with a rally from $422 to $600 in 7 days. BCH price chart | Source: TradingView The daily candlesticks of BCH are depicting a strong bullish trend with MACD signals moving towards the green zone. Basic Attention Token [BAT] Next in line is Basic Attention Token [BAT], with 25.19% in the past week. At press time, BAT is trading at $0.30 with a market cap of $309 million. The cryptocurrency has made to the news quite a number of times in the past weeks when BAT was launched on one of the most prominent exchange platforms, Coinbase Pro. The firm also launched its native browser Brave which is compatible with all the Chrome extensions. When these announcements were made, the coin shot up to 57%. The coin has taken an upward surge from $0.23 to $0.30 over the week with the highest trading volume of 62.56% emerging from Binance on BAT/BTC trading pairs. BAT price chart | Source: TradingView The chart depicts the 1-day candlesticks of BAT. The coin has shown an insignificant growth of 0.71% in the past 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap. XRP At the time of writing, XRP is trading at $0.52 with a market cap of $21 million. XRP’s tremendous rise has led the community to a joyous week. Earlier today, XRP has surpassed Ethereum [ETH] by market cap to take the 2nd position on the cryptocurrency list. The market cap of XRP had reached $22.5 billion at that time, whereas ETH’s market cap was $22.07 billion. The highest volume of XRP is seen to be on the Japanese exchange platform Bitbank with XRP/JPY trading pairs. The cryptocurrency has shown a steady growth over the week with its value growing from $0.44 to $0.52. The adoption of Ripple’s xRapid by the Japanese financial institution SBI Group and the cross-border remittance service, SendFriend seems to be the reason behind the upward momentum of the cryptocurrency. Also, Malta blockchain conference’s top exchange platform OKEx also announced the launch of BTC/XRP pairs for margin trading on its platform today. XRP price chart | Source: TradingView The 4-hour candlesticks of XRP show a slightly bearish trend, however, the MACD signals continue to stay strong implying a bull ride in the future.

New Cryptocurrency Bull-Run Already Started: Santiment Report

Data analytics platform Santiment has concluded that Ethereum based altcoins might be at the forefront of the next bull market. The End of the Bear Market Draws Near The last two quarters of 2018 have been dominated by talk of a Bitcoin-ETF approval by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), institutional investment, Bitcoin 00 closing the year above $10,000 and a bull market reversal by occurring toward the end of Q4 2018 or Q1 of 2019. It seems that literally everyone is waiting on a market reversal and analysts are on the fence regarding whether Bitcoin’s low volume and record lack of volatility are positive or negative signs. The analysts at Santiment believe that a bull market is already in the making and the data analytics platform primarily focuses on public blockchain activity and social media sentiment analysis. Their most recent ‘Signals’ newsletter discusses three key areas they believe support this point of view. While the current stability of BTC and ETH seem boring to many, Santiment analysts have observed that over the last month “a number of ERC-20 projects completely [broke] their ETH price interdependence” which means many tokens are now marching to their own beat instead of moving in step with ETH price. For example, yesterday Basic Attention Token jumped 25% after Coinbase announced they will list token and this was after the altcoin rallied 25% on the release of an update for Brave browser about two weeks ago. According to Santiment, MKR and ZRX also appear to be following the same “ETH decoupling pattern” and this divergence is unique as BAT, MKR and ZRX traditionally mirrored ETH price 00 action. On-Chain Activity and Social Media Mentions Spike Santiment also found that each altcoin had strong on-chain activity and the bullish price action was clearly visible on-chain. Their third ‘bullish’ measure incorporates a rather unconventional observation of “behavior analysis” to gauge the “social volume” of each token by the number of mentions across various crypto-associated social media. Altcoins Could Save the Day A combination of these three factors led Santiment analysis to conclude that cryptocurrency projects built on Ethereum blockchain are slowly leading the market into a bull run. They do concede that market could drop another notch before reversing course but Santiment feels confident enough about the current market set up to conclude that “The bull market has started.

Altcoins Price Analysis: LTC/USD Top Performer as XLM Inch Higher

The altcoin market is back to green with LTC/USD adding six percent in the last 24 hours. At the same time, Stellar trade volumes are quite high as the market remain expectant of a probable listing at CoinBase after BAT expected support. All in all, we expect gains to continue throughout this week. Let’s have a look at these charts: EOS Price Analysis It seems like the events around Bitcoin Cash software upgrade is lifting prices across the board. From the charts, EOS is up roughly three percent in the last day and poised to edge higher after horizontal range mode of the last 18 days or so. Though prices are still held within the bullish and high-volume Oct 15 bar, the simple fact that losses of Oct 29 have been reversed speak tones about the underlying momentum. It’s for this reason that we recommend aggressive type of traders to ramp up at spot rates with first targets at $7. Complementing stops should be equally tight at Oct 15 lows at $5. LTC/USD Price Analysis Boom! LTC/USD pair is the second top performer in the top 10 after surging six percent in the last day confirming our previous trade plan. Because of the high market participation and the comprehensive reversal of Oct 29 losses, it’s highly likely that the minor resistance trend line connecting the last two months high would be broken. Besides, LTC/USD bulls will surge recouping Oct 11 losses. As such, we suggest buys at spot with stops at $50 and first bull target would be at $70. XLM/USD Price Analysis All things constant, XLM/USD is poised for higher highs thanks to their rather stellar performance over the weekend. After Friday’s super gains strengthening bulls, price confirmations are encouraging. But, still 25 cents price tag is important and we must first see strong gains above this mid-range resistance and buy trigger line. From there aggressive traders should buy on dips or at spot with stops at 22 cents and first targets at 30 cents and later 50 cents. TRX/USD Price Analysis #TRON set a new record with 996,041 daily transactions on Nov 3 Comparison on Nov 3:$BTC: 249,564$ETH: 505,015$XRP: 265,004= 1019583 Total Txs#TRX is a mere 23,542 Txs from beating the combined daily transaction volumes of #BTC, #ETH & #XRP!#IAmDecentralized $TRX pic.twitter.com/zaMtAjVRB1 — Misha Lederman (@mishalederman) November 4, 2018 It appears as if the revival of the crypto market is boosting the number of transactions within the Tron platform. According to Justin Sun, the founder of the platform and a crypto celebrity, TRX related transactions printed 990k transactions on Nov 2 which is double that of Ethereum. At the same time TronDice has so far paid out 200 million of TRX—approximately $4 million. On to the chart and TRX/USD is trending inside a rising wedge. Following the last day gains we now have a three-bar bull reversal pattern, the morning star printing from around the support trend line rejecting attempts of lower lows meant to confirm Oct 11 huge losses. In any case, we need to see a confirmation of these gains and today should edge higher. Should it print today then we suggest small size buys with first targets at 3 cents and later 4 cents. However, risk-averse, conservative traders need to see rallies above 3 cents or 4 cents before buying. ADA/USD Price Analysis Two things are clear: first, we have a spike in market participation supportive of buyers and the result is a break above resistance trend line. Secondly, ADA/USD is bouncing off 7 cents cementing our last price forecast. Now, because of yesterday’s price expansion, we recommend aggressive traders to buy at spot with stops at 7 cents and first targets at 9.5 cents and later 12 cents. On a more conservative approach, traders need to wait for gains above 9.5 cents or Oct 15 highs before buying. Thereafter first targets will be at 12 cents where breakouts will see rallies towards 20 cents. Disclaimer: Views and opinions expressed are those of the author and aren’t investment advice.

Coinbase Lists BAT, Could Stellar Lumens (XLM) Be Next?

Coinbase Lists BAT After Months Of Speculation As reported by Ethereum World News on Friday afternoon, after months of speculation and unbridled hope, San Francisco-based Coinbase announced that it had plans to list Basic Attention Token (BAT), the native digital asset of the Brave Browser, on its professional-centric platform, the similarly named Coinbase Pro. BAT is launching on Coinbase Pro! Starting at 1pm PT today, customers can transfer BAT into their Coinbase Pro account. Traders can deposit BAT, but cannot place or fill orders. Order books will remain in transfer-only mode for at least 12 hours. https://t.co/31wbi09uyx pic.twitter.com/2YC7xtOjuI — Coinbase Pro (@CoinbasePro) November 2, 2018 The announcement, which came via a tweet and an accompanying blog post, revealed that starting on Friday, Coinbase Pro would allow its clients to deposit BAT tokens, which are based upon the Ethereum Network. Once “sufficient liquidity is established,” the American crypto startup intends to open trading for its BAT/USD Coin (USDC) order book. Interestingly, users “in most jurisdictions” will have access to the popular Ethereum token, except for those who reside in the state of New York, where the regulatory climate surrounding financial institutions is a lot more strict. Like Coinbase Pro’s previous listing events surrounding Ethereum Classic (ETC) and 0x (ZRX), BAT trading will be rolled out in a four-step/stage process — transfer-only, post-only, limit-only, and full trading. It is important to note that for now, BAT will not be available via Coinbase Consumer, better known as Coinbase.com, or through the startup’s iOS and Android applications, but the crypto firm added that it will make a separate announcement when the time comes. Due to the colloquially-dubbed “Coinbase Effect,” BAT is currently up 13.5% at the time of writing and is valued at $0.291 a piece. Stellar’s XLM, ADA, ZEC Still On The Coinbase Chopping Block Months ago, as you likely recall, Coinbase, a crypto-centric upstart now valued at a jaw-dropping $8 billion, unexpectedly revealed that it was pondering the listing of five popular altcoins — Stellar Lumens (XLM), 0x (ZRX), Cardano (ADA), ZCash (ZEC), and Basic Attention Token (BAT). In the original announcement, the quickly expanding company wrote: We are exploring the addition of several new assets, and will be working with local banks and regulators to add them in as many jurisdictions as possible. While the startup went radio silent on the matter for multiple months, in early-September, rumors arose that Coinbase was looking into adding 0x (ZRX). Eventually, those rumors became a reality, with the popular cryptocurrency platform revealing support for ZRX in mid-September, marking the first time that Coinbase had listed a token — an Ethereum-based one no less. Now, as aforementioned, Coinbase had added their second Ethereum token, listing BAT just two weeks after the ZRX premiere. Considering the double-digit price surge that both ZRX and BAT subsequently saw, many have begun to consider which token/crypto asset Coinbase will add next. As it stands, ADA, XLM, and ZEC are the only crypto assets Coinbase’s chopping block, so to speak. ZEC Recently, the ZCash Network underwent one of its largest protocol upgrades to-date, launching the so-called Sapling Protocol that changes how the privacy-centric blockchain handles zero-knowledge proof transactions. Due to this upgrade, many exchanges have shut down ZEC deposit and withdrawal abilities, for the time being, indicating that Sapling may have drastically changed how platforms accept, process, and send ZEC. Not only have the technical logistics changed for exchanges, but the regulatory climate surrounding ZEC, which is centered around private transactions, is still up in the air. These two factors could indicate that Coinbase won’t list the asset in the near future. ADA While Cardano has proven itself to be a leading network in today’s cryptocurrency realm, some are skeptical about ADA’s short-term success. Due to the fact that the Cardano Network is in its infancy, in spite of the heavyweight team backing the project, there have been many that aren’t ready to see ADA on Coinbase... or at least in the next few months anyway. XLM Unsurprisingly, many pundits of the Stellar Network and its native asset, Stellar Lumens (XLM), have been waiting for Coinbase’s validation for years. Jed McCaleb-backed Stellar, which somewhat unlike Cardano, has a mostly fully-fledged ledger up-and-running, has been seen as the primary contender for Coinbase’s next listing due to the real-world adoption and utilization of the popular network. Interestingly, out of the three aforementioned cryptocurrencies, Lumens rose the most following the BAT announcement, potentially alluding to the market’s sentiment that Coinbase will be listing XLM next.

Goldman Sachs Starts Onboarding Clients For Its New Bitcoin Derivative Source: Hacker Noon Goldman Sachs has already started onboarding some of its clients to trade on its Bitcoin derivatives, non-deliverable forward (NDF) contracts platform. Though the trading desk has not yet arrived, reports say that the company has already begun signing up a “small number of clients” while still considering the possibility of launching custody services for crypto assets in the future. Derivatives are contracts between 2 separate parties that work together to fix the price of an underlying asset - in this case, digital tokens or coins - over a period for a future transaction. The user will purchase the asset on a specific date at a particular price, while the seller commits to issuing the product. At present, Bitcoin derivatives are available on several regulated US trading platforms. This includes the exchanges CME and CBOE. Both of these firms offer cash-settled bitcoin futures contracts. Each of these exchanges has given investors reasons to believe that they will expand their crypto offerings in the future. CBOE, on its part, has outright expressed its desire to remain a leader in the cryptocurrency derivatives marketplace, while CME has launched an Ether price reference rate but in public statements has been less-than-enthusiastic about the crypto industry. Goldman Sachs is positive about cryptocurrency’s future, and there is no doubt they will try to stay in line with the industry. Ripple Became the Most Effici

Coinbase adds Brave Browser’s BAT Token

Coinbase had revealed it would list Steller Lumens (XLM), Cardano (ADA), ZCash (ZEC) and Basic Attention Token (BAT) a few months ago. The first token that has been added from the list is BAT which is the native token of the Brave Browser. The BAT token will be accessible to everyone using Coinbase Pro except people from the State of New York due to regulations. The announcement was made via Coinbase’s official Twitter handle- BAT is launching on Coinbase Pro! Starting at 1pm PT today, customers can transfer BAT into their Coinbase Pro account. Traders can deposit BAT, but cannot place or fill orders. Order books will remain in transfer-only mode for at least 12 hours. https://t.co/31wbi09uyx pic.twitter.com/2YC7xtOjuI — Coinbase Pro (@CoinbasePro) November 2, 2018 Clients will be able to deposit the BAT Token in the beginning, and once liquidity is established the trading of BAT/USD Coin (USDC) will begin. USDC is the stable coin which Coinbase has developed with Circle. The same four stages as applied to Ethereum Classic (ETC) and 0x (ZRX) being listed on Coinbase will take place for BAT. These steps include- Transfer only, post-only, limit-only and finally full trading. Brave Browser is run with the native token of Basic Attention Token (BAT). BAT is taking digital advertising using the Brave Browser to the next level by helping revenue be exchanged between publishers, advertisers, and users. Zerocrypted Opinion- You can expect XLM, ADA and ZEC being added next in Coinbase given that BAT is successfully chosen to be listed on the popular cryptocurrency exchange. Given the announcement of BAT being listed on Coinbase, the price of BAT increased. The price of BAT at the time of writing is $0.299759 while the market capitalization is at $299,758,640. Prior to BAT being added, 0x (ZRX) was added in mid-September which led to ZRX rising in price too. The so-called ‘Coinbase effect’ means the next coin added in Coinbase will experience the same demand leading to a price increase. Amongst the remaining three, XLM is the most likely to be added given its real-world adoption and its ranking of 6th place in the cryptocurrency market according to CoinMarketCap.
