Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) Released a List of its Favorite Cryptocurrencies; Same ‘Tokens’ To Be Included in Bakkt As Well?

ICE (Intercontinental Exchange), the parent company of the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) has initiated a research unit for 58 cryptocurrency projects and 19 FIAT currencies. ICE, in partnership with Blockstream, has established the ‘Cryptocurrency Data Feed’, which will provide with real-time and historical data of cryptocurrency prices from all over the world. Nevertheless, it has selected only 2.75% of the total number of cryptocurrency projects in the market. This is what this means for Crypto traders pic.twitter.com/eb2ejPB639 — ICE Data Services (@ICEDataServices) March 14, 2019 Cryptocurrency Projects Included in the Data Feed The entire list of cryptocurrencies added to the Data Feed can be obtained here. The Data Feed would provide a real-time thorough analysis of 58 cryptocurrencies on its official website. Moreover, widespread inclusion of only 58 cryptocurrencies from a total of 2106 projects would narrow down the targets of the investors. However, at the same time could hurt the altcoin markets and exchange volumes in the short term. Some of the notable cryptocurrencies from the list are: Stable Coins: The stable coins which will be added to the list are USD coin, TUSD, Tether, and Gemini Dollar. High Market Capitalization ‘tokens’: Despite the cryptocurrency markets being highly volatile a couple of projects have cemented their position and were rightfully included in the data. These included: Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Cardano (ADA), Monero (XMR), NEM, Ripple (XRP), Stellar (XLM), and NEO Potentially Valuable Projects: Some of the other cryptocurrencies with low market capitalization also features in the list. Currently, they can be analogous to penny stocks in traditional markets. These include Siacoin, Augur (REP), Ardor (ARDR), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Bitshares, Bytom, CyberMiles, Crypto.com (CRO), Digibyte (DGB), Dogecoin, Steem Dollars (SBD), Nebular, Mithril, Metaverse ETP, Zilliqa, and Ox. Huobi Included But No Binance (BNB) Coin: In exchange related token Huobi was included however Binance (BNB) coin was included. Bitcoin Cash (BCH), BSV, Bitcoin Gold and Ethereum Classic (ETC) the infamous hard forks from Bitcoin and Ethereum were also included in the list. Providing a Global Data Base For Cryptocurrencies Due to their decentralization, Cryptocurrency Exchanges have become ubiquitous in the world. However, there is no authorized metrics that would give out authentic real-time data. Hence, ‘price discovery’ becomes a significant challenge due to a multitude of avenues. The ICE data would provide insight on the project along with increasing the efficiencies for its traders. It would also facilitate pricing evaluation through proper surveillance and portfolio managers with statistics that will enable the crypto-assets to be traded between peers or customers directly. While dealing with currencies, volatility and protection against adverse market movements is of prime importance to import/export traders and investors. Hence, the ‘global coverage’ would enable hedge funds to manage their risks better. Expectations from the Bakkt Platform The Bakkt Platform will be one of the first institutionally backed cryptocurrency trading platforms. Hence, the number of cryptocurrencies expected to be included in the initial phases was limited. However, the data feed suggests that the Bakkt Platform might consist of more than just a few cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin.

In the Daily: Crypto Data Feed, BSV Sale, Bitmain Office Closed

Intercontinental Exchange has added new coins to its cryptocurrency data feed and we’ve got the details in this installment of The Daily. This edition also features Coincheck’s announcement that it plans to sell its BSV holdings and reimburse users with Japanese fiat currency. Also, Chinese mining giant Bitmain has closed its office in Norway. Also read: Cryptopia Resumes Trading, US Crypto Lobbying Intensifies, Visa Crypto Job ICE Adds More Coins to Its Cryptocurrency Data Feed Intercontinental Exchange Inc., the operator of the New York Stock Exchange, has expanded the scope of its ICE Cryptocurrency Data Feed to cover dozens of new cryptocurrencies. The service uses data from hundreds of sources in the crypto space, as the platform announced earlier this month. When it launched in January of last year, it was compiling data from around 15 exchanges. Now it promises users a comprehensive view of the market that can help them optimize their digital asset trading. The service is also targeting traditional financial institutions that want to enter the industry. Last week ICE Data Services tweeted a list of the digital coins that have been included in the data feed so far. Among them are major cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin core (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), ethereum (ETH) and litecoin (LTC). Totaling almost 60 projects, the list also includes aelf, ardor, augur, cardano, basic attention token, BSV, BTG, bitshares, bytom, cybermiles, crypto.com, dash, decentraland, digibyte, dogecoin, elastos, eos , ethereum classic, gas, gemini dollar, huobi token, icon, iost, kyber network, lisk, metaverse ETP, miota, mithril, monero, nebulas, nem, neo, odyssey, omisego, ontology, paxos, qtum, ripple, siacoin, status, steem dollars, stellar, tenx, theta token, tether, tron, trueusd, usd coin, vechain, verge, waltonchain, zcash, zilliqa, and 0x. Crypto Exchange Coincheck to Sell BSV Holdings Japanese digital asset exchange Coincheck has announced intentions to sell the BSV holdings accumulated as a result of the hard fork of the Bitcoin Cash network in November. The platform plans to convert the coins to fiat money and reimburse its holders with the corresponding amounts in Japanese yen that will be deposited to their trading accounts. Coincheck explained in an announcement quoted by AMB Crypto that the fiat equivalent could be lower than the market price of the coins and noted that a fee will be charged for yen withdrawals. The exchange did not reveal the date and the exact time of the upcoming sale in order to avoid affecting the market price of the currency. It also stated that only BSV funds will be sold. Bitmain Closes Office in Norway Chinese crypto mining giant Bitmain has closed its branch in Norway only a year after its opening. The Beijing-headquartered company has already terminated all its operations in the Scandinavian country and moved its office to Germany, ICO Shock reported, quoting the former Norwegian manager of the company, Julie Hvideberg. According to the executive, the main reason for the move is the revocation of electricity subsidies for mining facilities in the country. In November, the Norwegian government decided that crypto-based data centers should pay the full electricity rates and taxes, unlike traditional data centers. The publication highlights the controversial nature of the decision which attracted a lot of criticism from the power and data industry. Hvideberg, who has already quit her job, believes that in the future major mining pools will be concentrated in China and Russia, where electrical energy is much cheaper. On the backdrop of falling crypto prices, Bitmain closed its Amsterdam office and suspended its operations in a Texas-based mining facility in mid-January. And in December, the company shut down its research and development center in Israel. What are your thoughts on today’s news tidbits? Tell us in the comments section. Images courtesy of Shutterstock.

Electroneum Price Dips to 150 Satoshi Despite Major South African Partnership

While most of the cryptocurrency markets have turned bullish once again, it seems there will always be some exceptions. A fair few people will be surprised to see the Electroneum price is still bearish at this time. Its losses in both USD and BTC value continue to pile up, which is not necessarily what most people would have expected to see right now. Electroneum Price Can’t Catch a Break It is safe to say the Electroneum market has seen some interesting momentum in recent months. When most markets were down, the value of ETN would often offer a bit of a reprieve. That is no longer today, although the reason why remains unclear. With all top markets enjoying bullish momentum, it is all the stranger to see Electroneum turn uber bearish all of a sudden. Over the past 24 hours, the Electroneum price has lost nearly 6% in USD value, driving the price down to $0.005832. There is also the 8.82% loss over Bitcoin, which is something to be even more concerned about right now. This particular drop has forced ETN down to 150 Satoshi, a value traders hadn’t expected to see for quite some time to come. Even so, ETN is doing the exact opposite of all other markets, for some unknown reason. There is another big Electroneum-related development which can put a positive spin on the ecosystem. More specifically, there is a partnership involving ETN and South Africa’s The Unlimited mobile provider. Users can earn double airtime and double data when they top up their balance with Electroneum. It is a major development for this mobile-oriented cryptocurrency, although it doesn’t appear to impact the price in a positive manner. Are you in #SouthAfrica? FREE sim card! DOUBLE AIRTIME and DOUBLE DATA for your mobile with The @Unlimitedza when topping up with #ETN! https://t.co/nQAJNNfiMD+ https://t.co/jD21E4ejFG for more info! Go #electroneum! pic.twitter.com/2ppPFlgjlY — ETN Academy (@ETN_Academy) March 5, 2019 As far as the ETN community is concerned, it would appear another “call to arms” is on the horizon. CryptoLady wonders which community is stronger between Digibyte, XRP, and Electroneum. So far, it seems as if Digibyte is getting the most votes, even though these Twitter polls never amount to much in the end. For the time being, however, it is an interesting “debate” to keep an eye on. Which #crypto Community is stronger? If you have another favourite, write it to the comment. #Share #DigiByte #Electroneum #Ripple #DGB #ETN #XRP #altcoin@DigiByteCoin @electroneum @Ripple — CryptoLady (@CryptoLadi) March 5, 2019 CryptoSuaveA is wondering how and when Electorneum will make a strong impact in the price department. Although the current crypto winter has not lasted over two years - it has been in effect for 17 months - it seems as if ETN is turning wintery again. Additionally, the currency saw a fair few short upward bursts whereas other markets remained in the red. As such, it seems ETN will do just fine in the long run, despite the current minor setback. #ETN got wrecked bad this crypto winter that has lasted 2+ years. Wonder how the come back will look. — CryptoSuaveA (@JonathanDoesIt) March 6, 2019 All things considered, it seems the value of Electroneum will return to normal levels sooner or later. While this wave of bearish pressure is rather unexpected at this time, it seems there is nothing to be overly concerned about as of right now. The ongoing mobile expansion is still in play. With this interesting partnership in South Africa, a valuable precedent has been created. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

BBOD Review: The ‘Next-Generation’ High-Speed Cryptocurrency Futures Trading Platform

Blockchain Board of Derivatives (BBOD) is a hybrid and semi-decentralized trading platform for cryptocurrency futures. Announced on Dec. 8, 2018, the exchange allows stablecoin deposits and does not control or store clients’ crypto holdings. After several months of hard work, the BBOD trading platform testnet is now live with the mainnet expected to go live soon. BBOD Key Features BBOD is a cryptocurrency futures trading platform that has stablecoin deposits, non-custodial accounts, margin available, and more. We take at some of these key benefits in more detail below. Bitcoin and Altcoin Trading With up to 50x Leverage The trading platform allows users to buy and sell futures contracts on 16 digital assets. That includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, EOS, Binance, Litecoin, Stellar, Cardano, IOTA, Monero, NEM, ICON, Elastos, Decred, Digibyte, and TUSD. All trading contracts are denoted against the stablecoin TrueUSD (TUSD). Many traders will find this advantageous over the other crypto futures trading platforms that all currently use Bitcoin as the settlement currency. In total, BBOD gives traders access to more than 100 different cryptocurrency contracts and the opportunity to profit from both rising and declining prices. Screenshot of the BBOD crypto futures trading platform Stablecoin Deposits The stablecoin TUSD is used to denominate all the profits, losses, and account balances. This stabilizes profits and removes the substantial exchange rate risk that arises from using highly volatile cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Non-custodial Accounts This is a very important feature because it focuses on security and traders’ peace of mind. BBOD will not store users crypto holdings on the platform, but will instead create users their own personal smart contract wallet stored on the Ethereum blockchain network. This means that users store and manage their own private keys. The safety of cryptocurrency exchanges has been in the spotlight recently due to exchange scandals involving private keys and user funds. The industry is moving into an era where users need to have more control of their own crypto holdings instead of surrendering it to exchanges that are constantly targeted by hackers with nefarious intentions. Source: BBOD.io No KYC The platform supports anonymous trading as there is no Know-Your-Customer (KYC) procedure required. Users just need to sign on the platform using their email addresses and immediately start trading. High-performance Matching Engine The exchange has a high-performance engine that can perform up to 1.25 million messages per second. The engine is known for its low latency and high capacity. Trades are executed immediately on an off-chain ledger so users do not have to wait for the blockchain to confirm transactions. Blockchain Settlement The exchange supports on-chain settlements. The smart contract account balances of the users are updated once a day on the blockchain. The conditions for the update are programmed into the smart contract. The on-chain settlements have some of the traditional advantages of a blockchain: Transparency - messages are publicly broadcasted so that everyone can see them Unchangeable - the data cannot be altered once it has been entered Fully autonomous Secure - the update process uses mathematical properties of settlement vectors to keep hackers out Transactions on the blockchain are known for being slow and second-layer solutions are being developed to minimize the waiting time. Trading on BBOD is confirmed on the exchange’s servers and sent to the blockchain for settlement only once a day. As a result, there is no need to wait for the blockchain to confirm the trades on the platform. BBD Token The native token on the BBOD ecosystem is the BBD token. It is an ERC20 token issued on Ethereum, a pioneer in blockchain smart contracts. BBD is a utility token with several core utility functions including: All trading fees on the BBOD exchange can be paid in BBD Discounts for trading fees Participate in BBD giveaways under the BBOD lottery system Take part in trading competitions Pay for trading strategy courses Buy or rent algorithmic trading bots The total supply for BBD tokens is 117,382,569 and the maximum supply is 275,803,582. The BBOD team says that the total token supply is less than the maximum supply because of a token migration carried out in 2018. According to BBOD: “BBD token-holders migrated the tokens from the old contract address to the current contact address. As a result, BBD token-holders received additional BBD tokens. The split ratio was 100-for-1.” The exchange plans to organize BBOD Lottery events on weekly basis. This exposes the platform users to attractive rewards. The distribution of the BBOD token is very concentrated with the top 5 holders accounting for 70.34 percent of the token supply. Registering and Trading on BBOD Exchange The registration is smooth as it does not involve KYC procedures. Users only need to have

Digibyte (DGB) Surges 5% as Its Community Tries to Impress Wirex

After the crypto market opened this week trading losses, some cryptocurrencies have begun showing bullish signs. Over the past 24 hours, DGB surged as high as 5%. As at the time of writing, 9:22 AM, DGB is up 3.24% and is trading at $0.0112. This uptick comes as the Digibyte community attempts to appease Wirex by developing its network constantly. In so doing, the community hopes that Wirex will add support for DGB on its platform. However, this bullish momentum will not last because DGB does not have a real trading volume to sustain the growth. (KE)

Digibyte Price Gains 5% as Community Tries to Appease Wirex

After a very rough start to the week, it would appear as if the crypto markets are finally ready to turn bullish again. While there is still a lot of work to be done prior to noting any real gains, it seems some markets are moving in the green again. The Digibyte price is moving up again, although the road ahead will be filled with hurdles along the way. Digibyte Price Momentum Show Signs of Potential Growth Although a lot of crypto traders and speculators keep a close eye on all of the top alternative markets, Digibyte is hardly ever mentioned. That strikes a fair few people as odd, even though there is also a reason as to why this is happening. A lot of the initial excitement regarding DGB has quieted down all of a sudden. As such, it seems most of the “influencers” have dropped off the radar in recent months. Even so, it would appear the Digibyte price is ready to move up once again. Following a 4.6% gain in both USD and BTC value in the past few hours, it seems the momentum is turning in favor of this altcoin again. This price push also brings the value per DGB to $0.011333, or 300 Satoshi. This is a rather promising turn of events for the altcoin, although it remains to be seen what will happen in the coming hours. The DGB community is still very much in the game as of right now, as can be seen from the Tweet below. Devon is intrigued by the ongoing development of this particular cryptocurrency project and how they try to improve upon scalability at this time. Any crypto project needs to keep evolving at all times, and it seems Digibyte is checking a lot of the right boxes right now. This is another reason I love #DGB @DigiByteCoin - constant 24/7 development supporting an on-chain blockchain with leading Security/Speed/Scalability @DigiByteCoin @DGBAT_Official https://t.co/Y9189oZnFc — Devon ($DGB) (@digibytehelper) March 5, 2019 Mr. Hanson is happy with the way Bittrex has recently introduced a small upgrade and their “prize swag” giveaways. This reminded Hanson of how he has bought nearly all of his existing DGB holding son this particular exchange. Bittrex was one of the first major platforms to support the altcoin, and they still do so today. My first #DGB bag was bought on #Bittrex and the second and third and so on. Love the new update https://t.co/XSXN0qTzcv — Mr Hanson (@Hanson2024) March 5, 2019 It would also seem some of the Digibyte community members are looking for ways to get this altcoin supported on Wirex. While this approach needs to be commended, one has to wonder if DGB would even be a good fit. As of right now, the platform supports a fair few different currencies and projects, but Digibyte has not been on the short list so far. Seems like #DGB is the clear choice. Hands down, one of the best coins available. — SwineMine (@SwineMineApp) March 5, 2019 All of the market signs seem to indicate things are looking well for Digibyte as of right now. While the current gains are not necessarily too spectacular, it is evident the markets are slowly resuming their bullish trend again. Digibyte has no real trading volume - compared to its market valuation - that could keep this push going for very long, though, which is something to keep in mind at all times.

Daily Crypto Markets Technical Analysis: XRP, Digibyte (DGB), and Electroneum (ETN)

Yesterday’s Bearish momentum has been maintained over the last 24 hours with a majority of the indicators pointing towards a prolonged downward trend. The moving averages are all facing downwards with the 30 day moving averages dominantly above the 9-day moving average. This has influenced investor sentiments on some coins. In some instances, the RSI has dropped, threatening to cross over into the ‘oversold’ area. Also, support levels were tested and breached in some instances and Resistance zones lowered as seen below: XRP/USD The pair has been engulfed with a strong Bearish momentum which has seen its price drop from $0.32141 to $0.31995, a 0.3% drop. The bearish momentum seems set to keep going as seen from the contracting triangular pattern formed by the two Moving averages (C and B). Further, the 30 day EMA (B) crossed over the 9-day EMA (C) yesterday and has gone ahead to open up a huge gap between them. The 9-day EMA is currently below the 30-day EMA and is acting as the price support which goes to show the strong Bearish momentum in the market may go on for some time. In the markets, XRP was marked with huge sales that have seen the RSI (A) threaten to cross over into the ‘oversold’ region. The coin sold $368.3 Million over the last 24 hours and is currently at $13 Billion in market capitalization. DGB/USD Digibyte has had little to no activity in the markets over the last couple of days. In the last 24 hours, it dipped by 2.5% and only sold $1.2 Million in total. The coin, with a market capitalization of $109 Million, looks as though it is headed downwards seeing that its 30 day EMA (B) has been dominantly above the 9 day EMA (C). Additionally, both EMAs are below the price level which spells a strong bearish outlook in the near future. In terms of sales, there has been minimal activity, with the RSI (A) oscillating between 40 and 50 (the Middle zone). Investor sentiments can’t be said to either be neither positive nor negative. Unless the Bulls can increase their momentum, Digibyte will keep on dipping. ETN/USD Electroneum, the first cryptocurrency to be designed around mobile ubiquity, is down by 1.6% over the last 24 hours, having begun off trading at $ 0.006961 against the current rate of $0.006978. Over the last 24 hours, it hit a high of $ 0.007211 and a low of $0.006961 and only sold $250,228. The dip has seen its market capitalization clock at $61.6 Million The post Daily Crypto Markets Technical Analysis: XRP, Digibyte (DGB), and Electroneum (ETN) appeared first on ZyCrypto.

XLM, ADA, and DGB Set to Take the Crypto Space by a Storm

Cryptocurrencies like BTC, XRP, and TRX have remained dominant in the crypto sphere since the 2017 rally that saw the entire market post significant gains. However, some altcoins have been making substantial progress behind the scenes and are set to disrupt the crypto market. These are XLM, ADA, and DGB.

Due to these facts, these digital currencies are poised for greatness as their use cases will be on the rise in 2019. (VK)

XRP, Litecoin, Cardano added to the first exchange to bridge cryptocurrency and bluechip stocks

DX.Exchange made a huge splash recently when it announced that it was tokenizing securities and stocks of companies like Tesla, Amazon, Facebook etc., but now, it has announced that users can now trade XRP with Bitcoin [BTC] and other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC]. DX.Exchange is a community-based exchange regulated by Estonia’s Financial Intelligence Unit [FIU]. Moreover, the exchange is said to be using Nasdaq’s Matching Engine technology. As per their tweet on January 6, 2019, the exchange had made it possible to trade cryptocurrencies like XRP, Ethereum [ETH], Bitcoin [BTC] and even Litecoin [LTC]. However, the articulation of their tweet raised a lot of questions and caused confusion whether XRP was being used as a base pair or not. The tweet also mentioned that registered members would be able to trade without any commission fees. Furthermore, the tweet even mentions options for users to trade via Euro [EUR], Japanese Yen [JPY] and U.S. Dollar [USD]. In a separate post, on the same day, the exchange stated: “Trade @litecoin #LTC with #BTC, #ETH & #USD on http://DX.Exchange from the get go! #exchangeyourway” The Chief Operating Officer at DX.Exchange, Amedeo Moscato clarified a user’s question and said that they will be adding Tron [TRX] to their list of trading pairs. A user @FinesseDLT commented: “The way this is worded insinuates XRP quote pairings like NFLX/XRP, AMZN/XRP in addition to XRP/EUR, XRP/JPY, etc. Damn, I hope this is the case. #xrpthestandard” However, the exchange clarified in the subsequent comments that XRP was not a base pair on the exchange. A Twitter user @Alex commented: “You really should add XRP as a base pair to the stocks. The XRP community is massive and listing that will get a lot of business your way.” The exchange became the first exchange to tokenize securities that could be purchased using cryptocurrencies, this news made a huge splash in the cryptocurrency world as many people were excited about this new development. However, the news also received a lot of critiques who questioned the legal framework of the exchange. The exchange’s tokenized stocks will be going live today and will include cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], XRP, Cardano [ADA], OmiseGo [OMG], Enigma, ShareToken as well as Digibyte [DGB].

Ethereum’s ERC20 tokens to be used to tokenize and trade FANG and other stocks after hours

DX.Exchange, a community-based exchange has now made it possible to trade stocks such as Tesla, Apple, Facebook among others via tokenization using ERC20 tokens on the Ethereum network. The exchange announced that these services will be launched on January 7, 2019, and this will be the first time securities can be purchased with Bitcoin [BTC] and other cryptocurrencies. This will test the virtual stock market among the users that were previously unequipped to buy the US-based stocks and also test these new waters. Another upside to the tokenization of stocks is that users can trade these stocks even after the actual markets close, and also buy portions of stocks, which was previously not possible. The exchange’s CEO, Daniel Skowronski, said: “We saw a huge market opportunity in tokenizing existing securities. We believe that this is the beginning of the traditional market’s merge with blockchain technology. This is going to open a whole new world of trading securities old and new alike.” Moreover, MPS Market Place will hold these stocks in a 1:1 peg against these physical assets, which is similar to the functionality of stablecoins, but they use stocks instead of fiat money as a peg. The exchange has offices in Estonia and Israel and claims that it is fully regulated by the Estonian Financial Intelligence Unit and that they have full authorization to operate in the European Union. In addition, the exchange is said to be Nasdaq’s Matching Engine technology as reported by Bloomberg. The exchange also confirmed on Twitter that DigiByte [DGB] will be a cryptocurrency that can be used to purchase the above-mentioned stocks. The exchange has to confirm if other cryptocurrencies such as XRP and BTC can be used. Stephen Palley, a well-known person in the crypto-community and a lawyer, tweeted about the exchange saying: “Yeah, I’m going to send money to an Estonian and Cypriot regulated exchange and get ERC-20 tokens that represent stocks but are not stocks and sure they’re not CFDs also do you sell guppies sounds tots legit what could go wrong” In a subsequent tweet, he stated: “Look, even if it is totally legit — hey it might be, what do I know — good luck getting your disputes resolved in Estonia if you’re, y’know, not in Estonia.” The post Ethereum’s ERC20 tokens to be used to tokenize and trade FANG and other stocks after hours appeared first on AMBCrypto.

XRP pairs with Stellar [XLM], DigiByte [DGB], USD Coin [USDC] on Coinfield

On 18th December, the popular cryptocurrency exchange, Coinfield that is based out of Canada announced that it will be pairing XRP with the fifth largest coin, Stellar [XLM], the stable coin USD Coin [USDC] and Digibyte [DGB]. The platform also announced that it will be expanding its services to 40 new countries. The original tweet read: “New #XRP pairings with Stellar #XLM, DigiByte #DGB and #USDC stablecoin shine as CoinField expands to 40 new countries.” In the month of November, Coinfield had informed its followers that the services of the platform had gone live in 60+ countries at the time. In the same announcement, it had also taken the decision to add XRP for trading on its platform to wherein the commission fee was set at 0.05% and 20 XRP pairs were added including fiat pairs of XRP with USD, CAD, EUR, GBP, JPY, and AED. Now, apart from XLM, DGB and USDC, two other unpopular coins have been added to increase the number of XRP pairs, i.e., Civic [CVC] and Loom Network [LOOM]. XRP has been a pro when it comes to gaining worldwide adoption as its parent blockchain firm, Ripple is inherently a global business. Therefore, XRP has been able to make its way around the globe at a fast pace via the RippleNet. Though successful, XRP has been an integral part of many controversies, from it being alleged security to the ecosystem being highly centralized. Anytime the token is in trouble, the Ripple executives do not fail to step forward and refute such allegations. Moh, a Twitter user and a cryptocurrency space enthusiast on Coinfield’s announcement stated: “awesome you can now get #digibyte #dgb with your #XRP!! Come to the true decentralized #cryptocurrency ! #DGB the standard.” Here, the Twitter handle known as XRP Research Center replied to the above comment and mentioned: “You’re kinda’ implying that XRP is not decentralized with that tweet. I’ll invite you to review what PoW has done with decentralization. Spoiler alert: Utopia.” - XRP Research Center Bobby Dee, who is also a DigiByte fan and follower also reverted and wrote: “In comparison to #DigiByte it is centralized ... and it’s more expensive to transfer value using XRP than DGB” - Bobby Dee The post XRP pairs with Stellar [XLM], DigiByte [DGB], USD Coin [USDC] on Coinfield appeared first on AMBCrypto.

The Daily: 29% of Freelancers Want to be Paid in Crypto, Asian Exchanges Fake Volume

Today’s edition of The Daily covers everything from hardware wallets to fake volume on cryptocurrency exchanges. But to kick-start proceedings, we’ve got the first report on a survey in which a surprising proportion of freelancers express an interest in being paid in cryptocurrency. Also read: Swiss Crypto Valley Association Leadership Steps Down After Governance Review US Freelancers Express Interest in Crypto Payments P2P platform Humans.net has commissioned a survey into the payment preferences of American freelancers. It quizzed 1,100 U.S. citizens to determine their amenability to being paid in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, with 18 percent expressing a clear preference for digital currency payments over fiat currency. Among those questioned were self-employed professionals such as tutors, designers and developers. Given that the respondents were drawn from across the gig economy and were not prescreened for cryptocurrency interest, the 18 percent statistic can be taken as evidence of growing interest in bitcoin. An additional 11 percent of those surveyed stated that they would like to receive partial payments in cryptocurrency, making a total of 29 percent of freelancers who would be happy to receive crypto. Ellipal and Ledger Wallets Get an Upgrade The software that powers cryptocurrency hardware wallets is regularly updated to incorporate new features and coin additions. Ellipal, whose wallet we reviewed a few weeks back, has just had its firmware refreshed. “The Cold Wallet 2.0,” which ships from Hong Kong, now supports XRP, DGB, LTC, DASH, ETC, USDT and CMT, in addition to existing cryptos BTC, BCH and ETH. The accompanying Ellipal smartphone app has also been upgraded, with an improved UI and a new digital assets overview page. Meanwhile, Ledger has updated its Nano S wallet to support monero (XMR). Storecoin Launches Governance Peer Review It’s not uncommon for cryptocurrency projects to seek peer review of their technical papers. Zero-fee payment protocol Storecoin has narrowed in on a highly specific facet of its forthcoming blockchain however — governance. In addition to establishing a Governance Peer Review & Working Group, the project is soliciting community feedback on the trade-offs it has proposed in order to settle upon a workable system of governance. “We believe that the only governance model that can function at global enterprise scale without returning to centralization or descending into the volatility of mob rule is a checks-and-balances based system,” concludes its public peer review document. Coinbit and GDAC Accused of Manipulating Volume Coinbit and GDAC, two South Korean exchanges that launched during the summer, have joined the growing list of Asian platforms that Crypto Exchange Ranks (CER) accuses of fake volume. Inflating trading figures is a way that some exchanges game the system, placing them higher in Coinmarketcap’s top 100 exchanges by reported volume. Coinbit currently places fourth, with around $600 million of cryptocurrency supposedly traded in the past 24 hours, while GDAC occupies the 53rd spot. “Since GDAC’s trade fees are 0 percent the exchange redistributes its tokens ‘based on contribution for buy orders’ and calls it a ‘Purchase Contribution Air Drop,’ but the principle is the same as trans-fee mining,” explains CER. It also notes that in mid-November, Coinbit claimed the top spot on Coinmarketcap by reported volume, placing it ahead of Binance and Bitmex. Transaction fee mining exchanges remain highly controversial, with CER having previously taken platforms like Bitforex and Fcoin to task for similar practices. When Coinmarketcap’s exchanges are ranked by adjusted volume rather than reported volume, it’s no surprise that Coinbit and GDAC fall out of the top 100.

Comparing Bitcoin to Three Most Promising Cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin has beyond doubt exceeded expectations as the King of cryptocurrencies despite its recent performance. The cryptocurrency has won the trust of several institutions and individuals driving its acceptance rate positive. It is evident that the function provided by Bitcoin compared to the traditional banks makes it a better option, though it has been highly criticized on the ground that its anonymity encourages money laundering. Based on its weakness, some cryptocurrencies are being regards as an upgrade of Bitcoin, and offer a better option which makes them more promising. This post, therefore, compares three selected cryptocurrencies with Bitcoin. Digibyte Vs Bitcoin Comparing these two cryptocurrencies is like putting two heavyweight boxers on the same stage to talk about their capabilities. Digibyte has a low price but has no match when it comes to long-term goals and technological implementation. The Digibyte team has successfully launched Digishield technology which is used by some cryptocurrencies. ZCash, Bitcoin Gold, and Dogecoin are few of the digital assets that use Digishield. On the ground of block timing, Digibyte ranks higher with 15 seconds block timing ahead of Bitcoin’s 10 minutes. Digibyte has been said to be 40 times faster than Bitcoin. Dash Vs Bitcoin Dash announced its presence by rising to trade over $1000, finding itself in the top 10 cryptocurrencies with a large market cap. There is one main thing that Dash overtakes Bitcoin with, and that is full privacy. Unlike Bitcoin which users can create pseudonymous, making others to trace the transaction to its users, Dash comes with full private transactions. Bitcoin has high popularity and has mostly been influenced by its community size, unlike Dash which has low popularity and medium community. Bitcoin still has the edge over Dash in many aspects of the digital world. Litecoin Vs Bitcoin Litecoin and Bitcoin are quite similar in operation and most of their functions, however, there are some aspects where they look different. Bitcoin and Litecoin use different cryptography algorithm. Bitcoin uses an SHA-256 algorithm. Litecoin, on the other hand, makes use of Scrypt algorithm. Regarding their confirmation speed, Litecoin exceeds Bitcoin with 2.5 mins whiles Bitcoin has a confirmation time of 10 minutes depending on the traffic in the network. Even though most of the cryptocurrencies have better functions and promising goals, it takes time to get a lot of people who understand the goal and become partakers of it. It takes time for these cryptocurrencies to break forth. The post Comparing Bitcoin to Three Most Promising Cryptocurrencies appeared first on ZyCrypto.

Block 30 Labs Launches New Index for Crypto Trading Markets

BLOCK 30 Labs announced on Friday that they are introducing a new index for the digital trading markets. The new index, called the BLOCK 30 index, is one of the pioneering US indices that helps investors to track multiple factors in the market beyond Bitcoin. These factors include sector weighting, index committee, trading volume, asset price, market cap, and market sentiment. New Index to Be Launched With Other Tools The BLOCK 30 index will be issued with other thematic sector indexes including BLOCK 5, BLOCK 100, BLOCK 500, BLOCK 2000, BLOCK Finance, BLOCK Energy, BLOCK Transports, BLOCK Logistics, and BLOCK ASIA, along with a comprehensive TV media ticker. Brian McLaren Foote, the founder of BLOCK 30 Labs, commented on the launch of the index, saying: “We studied the historical indexes of the past - many of which are still in use today - took that learning and applied some new innovations for the digital trading markets. Digital trading is less than 10 years old, and the early parallels to the Dow and the S+P 500 are eye-opening.” Why Is the Index Necessary? According to Ryan Ballantyne, Sr. Vice President of Reality Shares ETFs, hundreds of blockchain projects will go public in 2019 via their Security Token Offerings (STOs). In an environment like this, the investors will need a sophisticated index that tracks the most important global markets and provides thematic sector coverage. The index will also be crucial in investor protection, providing them with a more comprehensive view of the market. He also said that the original 12 stocks on Dow concentrated mostly on cotton and railroads, two sectors that do not feature in the Dow 30. He noted that there is a need for an index that can reflexively track the growth of a new trading market, saying that the BLOCK 30 Index solves that problem for the next 1 or 2 decades, as the market would need coverage beyond Bitcoin. Jared Tate, Digibyte Founder, also commented on the index, saying: “There has been so much confusion on how to accurately measure the broader performance of this new asset class. BLOCK 30 is a major step forward towards getting an accurate gauge on the overall health of the market.” Block 30 Labs Launches New Index for Crypto Trading Markets was originally found on [blokt] - Blockchain, Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency News.

PR: Leading eShop MonetaryUnit, See’s Token Value Soar, Supports 42 Cryptocurrencies for Online Shopping

Bitcoin Press Release: Top eCommerce company MonetaryUnit has recorded substantial value rise in its digital $MUE token. The rise has been attributed to the fast adoption of its growing service, which now allows online buyers to use over 40 cryptocurrencies to purchase good with. 8th November 2018, London, UK - 70 Million household items can now be bought worldwide, as acceptance of over forty cryptocurrencies becomes the flagship payment option on MonetaryUnit’s ($MUE) relaunch of the largest UK independent marketplace. Since the summer acquisition of the Flubit.com brand, MonetaryUnit’s $MUE coin has shot up 37% in value, making it one of the leading players in the market today. Importantly for the wider crypto industry, this provides fresh validation for those seeking to make cryptocurrency an everyday payment asset. The company has already seen a surge in demand from communities wishing to have their coins added as payment options. Bertie Stephens, CEO of Flubit.com, spoke today about the important challenges of enabling a coin to be adopted into everyday life. “Being part of the Flubit.com shopping ecosystem can create demand for a coin, increase volume of trading, and consequently help grow a coin’s value and future relevance. Any community can apply, and we consider applications of those coins that we believe meet the same ethos as the MonetaryUnit’s own blockchain and crypto technologies”. The founder of the MonetaryUnit Blockchain project, Byron Barnard emphasised the project’s focus is to create environments that are accessible to all and free from the stigma that the blockchain/crypto space is only for techies. “Online shoppers expect the ease of checkout that card-payments currently gives them; prior to today that just hasn’t been possible at scale with cryptocurrency. On Flubit.com you can now simply choose any item from multiple sellers, select your preferred coin, and pay within a few clicks. Millions of everyday household items can be bought with crypto and zero fuss”. Flubit.com (a marketplace similar to Amazon’s offering), connects thousands of suppliers together, allowing users to purchase different items directly from multiple sellers in one basket. A setback to previous use-cases of cryptocurrency has been a slow adoption-rate from traditional businesses, but as Steph Fiala, Chief Operating Officer of Flubit.com explains, that is no longer a pain-point for sellers. “Sellers won’t know if they’ve received an order paid with a crypto or fiat currency.

DigiByte Plans ASIC Resistance With Continuous Code Changes

The team behind the DigiByte project has announced that they intend to keep DigiByte away from big miners by continuous code changes. ASICs are specialized chips manufactured for big miners, making low-volume cryptocurrencies centralized. DigiByte plans to combat it by implementing a mining algorithm that changes every 10 days. Also, hardware wallet manufacturer Trezor recently added support for DigiByte in beta. DigiByte (DGB) is priced at $0.02052, losing 1.41% in the last 24 hours. (VS)

Three Cryptocurrency Investment Tips to Newbies

Cryptocurrency investment has become the new deal in the financial market. The popularity of this investment field has attracted a lot of interest with people asking “what cryptocurrency investment is all about.” From a few questions I have encountered and my experience in the field, I have gathered three essential lessons that crypto investors should know. Many people go out there and buy a cryptocurrency of their choice, expecting the coin to make them billionaires overnight, or expecting nothing but continuous rise in price. The complete belief in the cryptocurrency makes people sell their properties or even use their life-saving earnings to invest in them. This post seeks to give three lessons focusing on the aspect of cryptocurrency investment that deals with buying digital assets and selling them when the price rises. Do Not Expect 1000% Rise overnight. Even though the cryptocurrency market is highly volatile and can rise by an unexpected magnitude, no cryptocurrency investment scheme can give you a 100% guarantee of a massive return within a short period after investment. There has been a lot of times experts have predicted an insane rise in the price of Bitcoin and other altcoins but ended up moving in the opposite directions. John McAfee, a renowned cryptocurrency expert, predicted that Verge would trade at $15 by mid-2018, but what happened? Verge ended up trading at $0.002. The cryptocurrency market is very responsive to harsh environments, ranging from government crackdowns to cryptocurrency exchanges filing for bankruptcy. Regardless of these, the market can make a bull run at its own time. Do Not Invest in Cryptocurrency With Life Saving Earnings In late 2017 to early 2018, there was a report that a family had sold their properties to invest in Bitcoin. Around that time, Bitcoin was trading above $10,000. Their reason for making this bold decision was probably influenced by how Bitcoin made a great run from $2000 to over$10,000. That was a dangerous decision. It is right that risk-taking is part of the investment, but weighing the cost and benefits of something before making a decision is essential in investment as well. The price of Bitcoin fell deeper and deeper after investing in the asset with money made from selling their properties. No matter how much you expect the digital asset to rise, invest an amount you can afford to lose. Bitcoin can crash like the Dutch Tulip Mania. Expect a Price Fall After Investment. After I successfully guided a friend to buy Digibyte, he asked me that “So when will I get rich?”. This question runs through the mind of many cryptocurrency investors, and they feel disappointed and deceived when they realize the price is not making any movement or the price is continuously falling. When you invest in any digital asset, expect a price fall and a market pullback. The cryptocurrency market does not rise continually without a fall. This kind of feature is dominant in Bitcoin price history. However, know that a cryptocurrency can rise by twice the percentage it fell.

DigiByte Trading at .786 Fibonacci Support; Are the Bulls Aiming For $0.03?

DigiByte has seen a small 1.15% price hike over the past 24 hours of trading. The cryptocurrency is currently exchanging hands at a price of $0.0237 after seeing a further small 1,72% price increase over the past 7 trading days. The market has been trading along the path of a long term upward sloping trend line and has remained confined above it for many months. The CEO of DigiByte had recently publicly aired his opinions relating to Binance recently on Twitter. Tate went on a Tweet storm to explain why DGB has never been listen on Binance. Last summer, after completing many legal requirements to be added the DGB team refused to pay a donation fee to the Binance team to be listed on the exchange. Binance had long been known to be charging extraordinary fees to be listed on their exchange which had recently gotten out of hand. Binance have recently come out and have stated that from now on they will be donating all of their donation listing fees to charity. However, Jared Tate went on further to state that he has been told to publicly apologise to CZ, the owner of Binance, in the hopes that DGB will be listed on Binance. DGB is currently ranked in 36th position in terms of overall market cap across the entire industry. It currently holds a total market cap value of $259 million as the 56 month old coin is currently trading 81% lower than its all time high value. Let us continue to analyse price action for DGB over the short term and highlight any potential support and resistance zones. Price Analysis DGB/USD - SHORT TERM - DAILY CHART https://www.tradingview.com/x/MnlYNx9k/ Analysing the market from the short term perspective above, we can clearly see that upward sloping trend line which has been supporting the market for over 10 months now. Each time the market approaches this level the bulls defend the area aggressively causing price action to rebound. We can also notice that price action is trading at a strong area of combined support with the .786 Fibonacci Retracement priced at $0.02352. This Fibonacci Retracement is measured from the 225% bullish price increase when the market started from a low of $0.01574 on the 1st of April 2018 and extended to a high of $0.0522 on the 3rd of May 2018. Moving forward, the support at $0.02352 is expected to hold strongly due to the combination with the upward sloping trend line. If the bears to manage to penetrate below this level of combined support we can expect immediate significant support below to be located at the .886 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $0.01986. Alternatively, if the bulls can regather momentum and push price action higher from this level of support, we can expect immediate resistance above to be located at the psychological round number handle at $0.0250. Resistance above this can then be expected at the 100 day moving average which currently floats around the $0.027 handle. If the bullish momentum can push the market market further higher we can expect more resistance above to be located at the .618 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $0.02967 followed by the .5 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $0.03399. The technical indicators within the market have recently slipped into the favour of the bears at this moment in time. The RSI is currently trading underneath the 50 handle which indicates that the bears are in control of the momentum within the market. If the RSI can break above the 50 line we can expect this market to move up and make some gains.

Binance Exchange User Loses Funds to Hackers, Says Binance’s faulty Email System Caused it

Following previous cases of irregularities and other issues with Binance exchange, another customer has gone on Twitter to say his account has been hacked and all funds withdrawn by an unidentified hacker. The user who did not identify himself said although his email was not hacked, he did not get any warning email from Binance despite the company’s claim that no withdrawal can be made without email confirmation from the user. Binance has confirmed that an unusual login was done on the account from a different country from which the user claims his account has been hacked just last month, in which case he froze the account. He decried Binance’s reluctance in freezing or suspending the account despite the fact that the company noticed the unusual login. He also told Binance that their mail system is “working unsystematic” and made a video of himself logging in with a new IP Address with no email alert from the company as a warning. He said that Binance does not care about users and he has written the post as a warning to other users to exercise caution. Surprisingly despite Two Factor Authentication used on the account, the hackers were still able to hack and reset the password to access funds and sold the Altcoins but withdrew Bitcoin. Commenting On this issue, binance founder Changpeng Zhoa said, Sorry for your loss! I looked into this issue. Before your funds were lost, you insisted we unlock your account, even sending us your 2FA key (through email), the hacker already had access to your email. We advised you to change your 2FA, you didn’t, you had 48 hours to. Sorry! This is not the first time a Binance user is complaining of problems with their account. Earlier this month, another unidentified user wrote on Reddit that his account was locked down for no clear reason and efforts to find out the reason proved abortive. The user accused Binance of “arbitrary behaviour and a lack of transparency” saying there was no reason to lockdown his account when he met all the requirements for verification. The company had also been called out by DGB Founder Jared Ted in a series of tweets saying Binance demanded a bribe from him to list DGB in its platform despite its earlier promise to list the asset for free. He said Binance’s legal and financial conditions are too much for most assets despite its claim of listing assets freely with no fees. Binance is the world’s biggest crypto exchange and the chain of complaints could really deal a deadly blow to its reputation and customer base. Will the company still retain its number one spot among crypto exchanges in the world if trends like this should continue?

Digibyte (DGB) Soars as the Wider Market Trades Sideways

Today Digibyte (DGB) soared 10.5% to rejoin the top 30 cryptocurrencies as the wider cryptocurrency market trades sideways. The price could be partially driven by the announcement of the first-ever Digibyte London Meetup on November 17. At this point, nobody is sure what to expect from the meetup, but there is always the possibility of a big announcement or a reveal of a new product at crypto-conferences. At the time of writing DGB is up 1.53% and the price is $0.0233. (RS)

Digibyte Price Surges As DGB Enters the Crypto Market Cap Top 30

Sundays are usually very interesting days for cryptocurrency trading. Not because the biggest gains usually materialize, but primarily because there can be some interesting changes few people expect. Digibyte, a currency rather often overlooked, is making some positive strides. DGB has also reclaimed its spot in the market cap top 30 over the past few hours. Digibyte Price is Tearing it up Not too much is happening in the cryptocurrency top 20 right now. That is not unusual, as most of the attention is on Bitcoin’s and Ethereum’s uneasy momentum. This usually drags all cryptocurrencies down with it, though Digibyte is an interesting exception at this time. Over the past 24 hours, the DGB price has noted a strong 10.5% increase over USD, combined with a near 10% gain over Bitcoin, this altcoin is suddenly hitting its stride during these rather odd times for the crypto market. Any positive momentum in the altcoin department shows investors are in fact keeping tabs on the various cryptocurrencies. There is some excitement surrounding Digibyte as of right now. The first-ever Digibyte London Meetup is getting a lot of attention, which shows the strength of the DGB community. The event will take place in November, although it remains to be seen what one can expect from it exactly. It is good to see different currencies have their own meetups these days, as cryptocurrency isn’t just about Bitcoin and Ethereum. But you can’t pay for a ticket or a drink with #DGB ??? Ridiculousness — Jay C (@pastienot) October 14, 2018 On the price front, a lot of people are talking about Digibyte right now. With the altcoin entering the crypto market cap top 30 again, a very interesting situation is created. Irfan Hasnani is confident the altcoin will rise to spot #27 before the day is over, although it seems rather unlikely something like that will happen anytime soon. At the same time, the coins in front of DGB are not showing much momentum at this time. #DGB pic.twitter.com/EKTYnLObEF — Irfan Hasnani (@Irfan_Hasnani) October 14, 2018 There is also the firm belief Digibyte will effectively change the payments landscape for small businesses moving forward. While it is certainly interesting to see how altcoins can make micropayments happen well before Bitcoin can do so, none of the altcoins have the same market traction or “brand power” that Bitcoin has either. Eventually every small business in the world will accept #DGB for micro payments, now that my friend is bigger news than signing 1 big payment partnership. Power to the people. — DigiByte Awareness Team (@DGBAT_Official) October 14, 2018 Based on the current circumstances, it is safe to say things look pretty good for Digibyte. As is usually the case in cryptocurrency, problems arise when it comes to sustaining any sort of upward momentum for several hours, or even days. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.
