Crypto Market Wrap: NEO Jumps Two Places With 13% Gain

Market Wrap Crypto markets recovering again; NEO on a Roll, Tron and Binance Coin gaining momentum. Another small bounce has taken crypto markets back to Monday’s levels indicating that things are still sideways for the time being. Total market capitalization is back over $135 billion but has failed to go any higher over the past week. Bitcoin pushed back over $4,000 and is currently up a percent or so on the day trading at $4,050 at the time of writing. BTC jumped to an intraday high of $4,100 but the bears came rushing out preventing it from breaking that wall of resistance it faces at this level. On the week Bitcoin is showing a 6.5% gain but it seems to be consolidating here along with the entire market. Ethereum is back over $150 with a 2% rise over the past 24 hours. It too does not seem to have the momentum to make further gains and pulled back twice after hitting $153. The top ten is mostly green during the Asian trading session today, only Bitcoin SV is showing a loss as it slides down the charts. Tron has made the biggest gain of over 6% on the day as it extends its lead over BSV and chases down Tether and that $2 billion market cap. The rest have made between 1 and 2 percent on the day at the time of writing. The top twenty is also mostly green and NEO is running away with it gaining 13.5% on the day. Rumors of ties between the project and the Russian government, and top global blockchain rankings from China’s Center for Information and Industry Development has boosted momentum for NEO. It has now flipped both Ethereum Classic and NEM and risen to 16th spot by market cap which is currently $620 million. Trade volume has doubled in a day from $100 to over $200 million as NEO wakes up. Binance Coin is also performing strongly with an 8% gain and Cardano has made 4.6% on the day. The rest are up 1 to 3 percent aside from Dash and NEM which have not moved. Today’s dose of fomo goes to Holo which has pumped 48% on the back of a positive Nasdaq article. Pundi X has also had a good day with gains approaching 20% at the time of writing. There are no big losers today but those topping the red end of the top one hundred are MaidSafeCoin and Dentacoin dumping 7% each. Total crypto market capitalization has crept back up to $137 billion 1.5% back up since yesterday’s pullback. The daily volume chart shows an unnatural step from $15 to $25 billion two hours ago some more moves could be imminent. On the week crypto markets are 6% higher but they still cannot break out of their range bound channel.

Crypto Market Update: Ethereum Increases Gap Over XRP to $2 Billion

FOMO Moments Crypto markets moving slowly; Ethereum extending the lead over XRP, Tron is flying. Crypto markets have gained marginally as we start the weekend but things are generally mixed for individual coins and tokens. Total market capitalization has remained above $130 billion but has not moved a great deal over the past 24 hours. Bitcoin has been pretty flat over the past day but is up a tiny bit on yesterday’s levels trading at $3,870 at the time of writing. Volume has increased again back to over $5 billion indicating more gains could be forthcoming. BTC is down a little on last weekend’s prices but the difference is negligible. Ethereum is accelerating away from XRP in third and the gap is now almost $2 billion in market cap. ETH reached an intraday high of $160 before pulling back slightly, at the moment it is still up over one percent to $158. Conversely XRP has fallen 1.8% back to $0.357. The top ten crypto assets are generally mixed with more red than green showing during the Asian trading session this Saturday. Bitcoin Cash continues its slide south of $160 with another 3% lost today. Tron is the biggest gainer with over 8% made at the time of writing, momentum coming from Binance including BitTorrent’s BTT token on its Launchpad and ETH gaming developer EtherGoo switching over to the Tron network. The top twenty altcoins are also a mixed bag at the moment. Binance Coin and Monero are making small gains while Iota and Zcash are falling back a little. The rest are not really moving much with less than a percent difference from yesterday’s prices. Yesterday’s fomo pump is still pumping today as REPO adds another 40% and makes it into the top 70 cryptocurrencies. DEX is still pumping and dumping with a similar gain on the day and Dentacoin has also made over 20% today. Getting the red end of the stick in the top one hundred is Holo dropping 9% at the time of writing. Total crypto market capitalization has not moved a lot since yesterday and is currently at $132 billion after reaching a low of $128 billion last night. Trade volume is up marginally to $16 billion but a sideways channel seems to be forming at this level. Markets have been pretty flat all week but are up almost 5% on the same time last month.

The Much-anticipated Dentacoin Assurance’s Testnet Launches

Today, the Dentacoin Foundation announced the launch of the long-awaited Dentacoin Assurance’s testnet. This initiative would entitle patients to lifelong, preventive dental care when they pay monthly premiums to dentists in Dentacoin (DCN). Smart contracts would establish the dentist-patient relations, and the blockchain technology would automate and secure the process while encouraging both parties towards sustainable prevention instead of acute treatment. This project is the work on 83 dentists, insurance specialists, general health professionals, developers, and dental marketing experts alongside 1022 other people who Dentacoin surveyed about different aspects of this initiative.

Civic’s token illustrates why companies masquerading as tokens will fail

Civic, the identity system founded by self-proclaimed “Bitcoin Oracle” Vinny Lingham in 2015, is a notable example that serves as a strong case against many of the flawed token-based approaches presented. Vinny, a bitcoin advocate dating back to his previous gift card company Gyft, raised a 2016 seed from blockchain investors to “secure SSN”, without any explicit goals to incorporate a token or blockchain at the time. The company raised ~$33m in funds through an ICO that looked like the world’s most bizarre nightclub line: in it, tens of thousands of participants were placed in a queue and randomly allowed access to purchase CVC tokens priced at $0.10 each, regardless of when they joined. Of the one billion tokens, 33% were sold in the ICO, with another 33% retained by the Civic team, 33% to incentivize the community, with 1% left over for running the sale. I imagine that the conversation between Vinny and his engineering team went something like this: Vinny: Team, we need to put this on The Blockchain. Team: Err, come again? We can just store this stuff locally or some distributed system that doesn’t need a chain of blocks. Vinny: Sounds good, let’s use Blockchain and raise an ICO. Team: Wait, what? The token question was always a bit of a mess. The Bitcoin Oracle stated over and over again in 2017 that the CVC token, initially issued on Ethereum, was a temporary decision until the launch of Rootstock, a smart contract platform implemented as a Bitcoin sidechain. The question of why Civic, a centralized company that had an existing mobile identity product, needs a token is an excellent question and answered at first in an 18-page whitepaper, which spends more time explaining 50,000 views of the digital identity industry and how blockchains work than covering the specific utility of the CVC token. Diagram from the original Civic white paper explaining how the system works In this case, as seen in the diagram, the original CVC token vision was to create utility through its use as an “ecosystem token.” In the Civic ecosystem, the places where circles are examples of places where the CVC token is “used as a form of settlement between participants to an identity-related transaction within the Ecosystem.” If you’re not trying to deceive unsophisticated retail investors, another way to think about it is just that the token is used for payment. Even if their platform is useful, the question every ICO team should be asking is still outstanding: why use a proprietary token for payment when a fiat-backed token (more stable), bitcoins (decentralized money token), or just dollars (simple) suffice? The white paper presented 4 extremely compelling reasons: It can be used across any number of jurisdictions, retaining a single uniform method of settlement. nods head, thinking “Bitcoin can do the same thing.” Using a blockchain-based token makes it possible to perform settlements automatically and irrefutably within a smart contract nods head, thinking “Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a number of other existing public blockchains allow for this too.” Having a unique, specialized token for accessing identity services provides stability and shields the Ecosystem from extraneous considerations that can make other cryptocurrencies volatile Oh man, this is just great. Forgetting that all unpegged cryptocurrencies are money (some more liquid than others, like gift cards), it’s unclear why this is even intuitive (or went unquestioned by so many). Fortunately, we can see empirical confirmation that Civic’s team aren’t token engineering alchemists who’ve figured out the holy grail of price stability: Civic is down 96% from its all-time high, now trading at half its’ ICO price. Chart courtesy of OnChainFX It makes it possible to manage incentives in a way that drives Ecosystem effects for the benefit of all participants in the Ecosystem This is the most substantive bullet. Civic, like many others, believes that the token allows them to “manage incentives” to solve the bootstrapping problem early-stage startups often face. However, in practice, “managing incentives” looks a lot more like “give away tokens to try to bribe people into building stuff with our technology.” Let’s call this the Token Engineering Reality Distortion Field (or TERDF for short). Another generous reading of why Civic kept so many of the generated tokens is that they can use the value of those tokens to subsidize the cost of KYC verification, which then makes the service more appealing to prospective partners (given the increased number of users on the platform). For those who think I’m kidding, in a September interview, Vinny implied that why the giveaway-based growth model that nearly bankrupted PayPal could work: Paypal got it right with the whole $10 free if you invite a friend and it nearly bankrupted the company. They managed to crack the chicken and egg problem doing it that way. In an earlier blog post titled “Why Tokens are Eating the World” (a play on Mar

Civic CEO Vinny Lingham Criticized After The Company Partners With Controversial Dentacoin

Civic CEO Vinny Lingham has been a subject of controversy after announcing a partnership with Dentacoin. Lingham raised $33 million in an ICO for Civic last year and has remained silent after that. Dentacoin will now use Civic’s services to authenticate candidates for its dental health training. However, Dentacoin itself has been questioned over its legitimacy. Civic has been accused of new partnerships with a series of failing companies. In August, Civic partnered with Paragon, another startup that raised millions of dollars and had very little progress. Civic (CVC) is priced at $0.051167, gaining 4.90% in the last 24 hours. (VS)

‘Stop Calling Him Oracle’: Paragon, Dentacoin and BCH Haunt Vinny Lingham

Civic CEO Vinny Lingham is the subject of no confidence calls this week after his startup partnered with controversial blockchain entity Dentacoin. Dentacoin Goes For Damage Control Lingham, who raised $33 million for Civic in an ICO last year, had remained largely quiet regarding use of the funds, the ongoing cryptocurrency bear market taking a heavy toll on its CVC token 00 which currently trades at record lows. Netherlands-based Dentacoin, which itself has gained a dubious reputation over the legitimacy of its operations, will now use Civic’s services to authenticate candidates for its dental health training. News of the partnership immediately saw mixed reviews, CVC investors having eagerly awaited news of a turnaround move which would increase their fortunes. On Twitter, users drew parallels between Dentacoin and Civic’s earlier deal with Cannabis startup Paragon in August. Paragon, which likewise raised a significant amount via an ICO, had made little progress beyond token gestures such as opening coworking spaces, Bitcoinist reported. Last month, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) succeeded in ordering Paragon to repay millions of dollars in contributions and fines over failure to comply with securities laws. Dentacoin was forced to respond to the barrage of criticism. “This is another great step forward towards creating a seamless UX and authentication across all our tools. Leave your username and password in the past, for CivicConnect and Dentacoin are here to take you to the future,” an official wrote. We are proud to be the pioneering project for CivicConnect. This is another great step forward towards creating a seamless UX and authentication across all our tools. Leave your username and password in the past, for CivicConnect and Dentacoin are here to take you to the future. — Dentacoin (@dentacoin) October 22, 2018 Delphic Oracles Paragon and Dentacoin are just the latest PR battles in what has been a troubled year for Lingham. In January, the entrepreneur publicly said altcoin Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was “undervalued” as altcoin markets reached all-time highs. “When I look at it from a product standpoint, I think the greater demand is for peer-to-peer cash than digital gold,” he told CNBC, referring to Bitcoin Cash over Bitcoin, respectively. CNBC had referred to Lingham with the nickname ‘Bitcoin Oracle.’ In the ensuing eleven months, BCH 00 has split into two chains and lost the vast majority of its value, one chain like CVC trading at the lowest levels in its history. Unsurprisingly, the interview has come back to haunt Lingham, one user appealing to CNBC on Twitter following the Dentacoin announcement: “Please stop calling Vinny the Bitcoin Oracle.” What do you think about Vinny Lingham’s forecasts and Civic partnerships? Let us know in the comments below! Images courtesy of Shutterstock The post ‘Stop Calling Him Oracle’: Paragon, Dentacoin and BCH Haunt Vinny Lingham appeared first on Bitcoinist.com.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: The Friday Dump is Getting Tedious

FOMO Moments Cryptocurrency markets in predictable pain as the week ends; Bitcoin Cash, SV, getting killed, Stellar not far behind. As if scripted by some kind of delirious director, crypto markets are dumping again this Friday. The same thing happened last Friday and the one before that and the end of week selloff is getting a little tedious. Bitcoin fell to its yearly low again a few hours ago when it dumped 5% from over $3,400 to below $3,290. This marks a revisit to the 2018 low BTC made on December 8, almost a week ago. As before BTC managed to bounce off this weak support zone but it won’t be three times lucky if all the analysts are to be believed. Ethereum is forever losing ground as it drops even further, another 3.5% on the day taking it back to around $85 - the lowest ETH price for 18 months. Altcoins are bleeding again as we end another painful week in crypto land. Without even looking at the top ten you can probably make a good guess which one is falling the most. Bitcoin Cash yet again is getting hammered with a 9% plunge back to $85. Its rival Bitcoin SV is taking a similar beating and Stellar is not far behind with a 6% slide. Most altcoins in the top twenty are losing 4-6 percent since yesterday at the time of writing. Only Ethereum Classic and Maker are treading water with no losses on the day so far. As usual there are a couple of fomo pumps occurring and the lucky teams today include Dentacoin and Waves, the only two cryptos making double digits. Again, from the same script as the Friday dump, are the altcoins in pain today, namely yesterday’s fomo spikes - Bitcoin Private, DEX, WAX and Factom dumping double figures. Total market capitalization is almost back to its lowest level for 2018. Dropping 3.7% on the day markets are just below $105 billion at the moment - not far to go to set a new record low. After reaching a weekly peak of $117 billion markets have dumped back to last weekend’s low levels and the likelihood of them dropping further is high. 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.

Daily Berminal Brief: Kraken Is Valued At $4 Billion, And Bitcoin Tops Google Search In 2018

After a few action-packed days, the market is relatively calm today. Bitcoin is trading above $3,400 and is not expected to crash below $3,000 anytime soon. With a few more days left for 2018, a short-term rally is possible as institutional platforms launch. The market changed by just $1 Billion today. Dentacoin (DCN) is up by nearly 18%, making it the top gainer in the last 24 hours. In other news, Basis, a stablecoin which raised $133 million from Alphabet’s venture capital arm GV, Baincapital Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz and others, is closing its doors due to regulatory issues, according to The Block. Basis plans to return most of the funds it raised. Also, Allianz Global Investments (Allianz GI) CEO Andreas Utermann has called for a ban on Cryptocurrencies. He said regulators should outlaw cryptocurrencies because it has wiped out people’s savings. 1) According to a recent report from Finance Magnates, American cryptocurrency exchange Kraken is considering a private offering. It has already sent out emails to its high-value customers about the investment opportunity. The exchange is seeing a valuation of $4 Billion, with the minimum investment size being $100,000. Kraken has employed a 3rd party service to take care of running accredited investor checks, execute transaction documents and funding of investments. Founded in 2011, Kraken is one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchange. 2) Data from Google Trends shows that “What is Bitcoin” and “How to buy Bitcoin” ranked among the top questions people asked Google in 2018. Both phrases ranked highly in global and U.S. Google searches and it appears that more people were interested to learn more about Bitcoin than searches for Donald Trump and Barack Obama. To date, people in the U.S. remain more intrigued by Bitcoin than the Russian collusion investigation of the Trump administration and this comes even as Bitcoin price has dropped by more than 80 percent this year. Market analysts have attempted to correlate Bitcoin search activity to the digital assets price action and previous studies concluded that spikes in Bitcoin activity corresponded with Bitcoin price rallies. 3) A new report issued by the Cambridge Center for Alternative Finance suggests that the number of “newbies” entering the crypto space in 2018 practically doubled from the numbers listed for 2017 despite bitcoin’s record drops. Though some analysts predict the Bitcoin to fall further, the data shows that Bitcoin is potentially in line for another rally. However, the study confirms that bitcoin is still largely being used for investment purposes rather than for commerce or making purchases. Besides, volatility still remains an issue for Bitcoin, among others. (VS)

What the blockchain?! Weird things you’ll find in cryptocurrency

If we had to tell you that an artist has embedded thousands of dollars worth of cryptocurrency in their publically displayed art and that there was a cryptocurrency born from a meme which has a market cap of $311 million USD, you’d probably think we were insane. Well, it’s not true. We’re not insane. But the world of cryptocurrency can be and some things within the space of digital currency are just so quirky that it’s hard to imagine that the whole system revolves around millions and millions (and millions) of dollars. In this, we will take you through some of the more bizarre aspects which live within the space of cryptocurrency. CoinDaddy - Bitcoin Rap Sensation Yeah, you read that correctly. In this world exists a man who is a rapper solely focused on Bitcoin. Coindaddy, a 28-year-old real estate agent turned Bitcoin mogul decided to cash in his fame to become the world’s most-niche-rap-artist. Having been styled as cryptocurrency’s Weird Al Yankovic, CoinDaddy adds his massive amount of quirk to the community, donned in a long white fake mink coat, gold-heeled shoes, and leopard-print shirts. Yes, gold-heeled shoes, folks attempting to help the words and “educate newbs” about digital currency. Quirky Coins With Dogecoin leading the market of meme-coins, there has been a fair share of peculiar tokens that have arisen since cryptocurrency’s fame. The coins, ranging from Garlicoin which brands itself as a means “to create a cryptocurrency to revolutionize the memecoin market” to the cavity-free Dentacoin, offer obscure ideas and amusing perceptions on use-cases for cryptocurrency. It’s highly unlikely that any of the coins - except the startling case of Dogecoin - will ever honestly take off, but their journey to some moon is at least an entertaining one to watch. Cryptocurrency inspired art Art is known to be valuable, but this case puts a different sort of price-tag into play. Andy Bauch, an abstract artist, has taken his art and embedded puzzles within his pieces which can be solved to reveal addresses to cryptocurrency wallets holding different amounts of Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin. The artist has said that he is “trying to span this gap that often exists between new technology and humanity,” with his artwork. He has used huge amounts of Lego pieces to give a tactile approach to his art, and his pieces abstractly represent a pixelated aesthetic. Kittens and zombies on Ethereum’s blockchain A game was developed to run off Ethereum’s network to offer a bit of light-hearted digital petting. Instead of being light, Cryptokitties boomed in popularity and ended up adding a serious amount of pressure on the blockchain which has resulted in an enormous traffic jam on the network. Further quirks on Ethereum’s blockchain have stemmed from the blockchain craze and other games have emerged since, such as the card collecting CryptoCelebrities and the surprising educational CryptoZombies. The impassioned middle finger Okay, while this one might not be quirky, we do think it is one of the weirder things to have come from an industry which should be professional and well-polished. The tempers which have been raised on the blockchain have resulted in some fiery ‘debates’ which cannot go unmentioned. In particular, we are talking about the interview which sent Bitcoin Cash’s CEO Roger Ver into such a state that he pulled his middle finger at his computer screen and rage quit the online dialogue. The interviewer, John Cavarlho, evidently found the button that pushed Ver to breaking point and pressed it. Repeatedly. “Why do you have a problem with people calling it Bcash?”, Cavarlho posed innocently, to which Ver answered: “[if] I called you a four letter word that you didn’t want to be called, you wouldn’t appreciate it.” In his defense, Ver did issue an apology video for his abysmal behavior.

How To Choose An Altcoin

Altcoins have taken the brunt of the 2018 bear market losses, with some even losing ninety to one hundred percent or more of the gains made at the end of 2017. As the market stabilizes, smart investors will be looking to put their money into projects with substance and potential. The Golden Age Of Altcoins The end of 2017 brought great fortune to those who invested in cryptocurrency. Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) exploded in popularity and many new investors found that they could throw money into practically any project using blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, and make back huge percentage gains. Suddenly, projects with nothing more than vague, long-term roadmaps were being funded left and right by investors who were brand new to the space. Investors who were blindly putting money into hyped up, flavor-of-the-week coins without so much as researching the goals and plans of the projects. The current 2018 bear market has been a valuable, albeit expensive lesson into what actually makes a project worth your hard-earned time and money. A New Era Investors should always do their due diligence when it comes to putting money into anything. Projects with actual working products and utility will have the most potential for profits when the next bull run kicks off. Historically, the final quarter of the year has been the best time for explosive growth and important project announcements and releases. NAGA is a prime example of a well-rounded blockchain project which has an underlying cryptocurrency, the NAGA Coin (NGC), that can be used in its expansive and multifaceted ecosystem. The NAGA Coin token sale ranked 2nd (2017) amongst top ICOs in terms of investor base with more than 63,000 investors and continues to develop and release resources for its platform, including a global market trading platform, a safe and secure software wallet, and a physical card that supports USD, EUR, and GBP. NAGA currently boasts seven working financial products, with another six that will be available soon. All of these integrated and complementary products set NAGA apart from the crowd. A Leg Up There are currently over two thousand cryptocurrencies listed on CoinMarketCap, ranked in the order of market value. It is important to note that the failure rate for ICO projects is a staggering 92 percent, with an average lifespan of only 1.22 years. The 2017 bull run caused ICO valuations that seemingly prioritized hype over real-world use. Digging deeper into some of the projects in the top 100 raises some flags. Take, for example, Verge, Dentacoin, and Monacoin, ranked 13th, 74th, and 75th respectively. Verge (XVG) is a privacy-centered cryptocurrency with little to offer other than a software wallet and the ability to transact the currency between them. It has also suffered multiple large-scale thefts on its network, yet remains in the top 50 cryptocurrencies in terms of market cap. Dentacoin is a blockchain solution for the dentistry market that debuted nearly one year ago. The project is quite niche and seems to only be useful as a dental hygiene education application. Monacoin is another decentralized payment solution clone similar to so many others in the saturated market. Fierce competition and innovation will eventually render many of these projects obsolete in the future. The team at NAGA, however, are constantly adapting and creating products that help give investors a leg up on the traditional and cryptocurrency markets and have far more intrinsic value than a large number of its competitors. What are some things that you look for when researching to invest in an altcoin? What are your thoughts on NAGA’s fintech ecosystem? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
