Cryptocurrency Market Update: Has NEM Awoken

FOMO Moments Monday markets are immobile; Nem is rising, Ravencoin is flying, the rest are sleeping. After a slow weekend crypto markets have retreated a little this Monday but are still largely inactive. Total market capitalization has dropped back a fraction but is still holding around the $210 billion level. There has been no movement in the Bitcoin camp which is still stuck at $6,500. BTC has been stuck in this consolidating range and the path of least resistance still seems to be on the downside. Ethereum is also flat with no movement since yesterday leaving it trading at $205. The altcoins are all red during Asian trading today however losses are all very minimal. Stellar and Litecoin are the only two coins in the top ten with a loss over one percent. The rest have hardly moved over the past 24 hours. There is nothing much to write about in the top twenty either aside from Nem which is showing gains of over 6% at the moment. This has taken XEM back to $0.10 as trade volume jumps to $10 million. The Nem Foundation has been busy launching new blockchain hubs in Melbourne and Vietnam as it expands in the region. Recent news that an immersive entertainment experience opening next year on the Las Vegas Strip called Kind Heaven has selected NEM as its blockchain partner would also be adding to momentum. Tezos has also made 2% on the day but most of the other altcoins are in the red with small losses. VeChain is leading them with a dip of 2% on the day and Iota is not far behind. Today’s big fomo pump is Ravencoin surging over 60% at the moment as it climbs the top one hundred. Veritaseum, BAT and Nexo are also doing well today with gains of over 15%. At the messy end is CyberMiles which continues to fall back shedding another 8% on the day. Elastos and DigixDAO are also both losing 6% at the moment. Total crypto market capitalization is still at $210 billion, the same level as yesterday. Markets have not done anything since last Monday’s 15 billon dollar spike. Since this time last month though they are down 6% as the sideways inactivity continues.

FOMO Moments Markets have receded a little from the spike; Tezos, Bytecoin and Icon still climbing. Yesterday’s big bounce has been sustained today and markets are holding their gains at the moment. The rally added over $20 billion into crypto markets initially however a pullback has seen levels drop a little. Total market capitalization is currently over $210 billion. Bitcoin has retreated a little from its daily high of almost $7,000 and is currently trading at $6,650 - the level it remained at for so long previously. BTC trade volume which exceeded $7 billion on the day has pulled back to $5.8 billion which is still almost double the $3 billion it was at 48 hours ago. Ethereum has dropped back 2% to trade at just over $210, showing a similar pattern to Bitcoin. Altcoins are a mixed bunch this morning with some pulling back and others continuing to gain. In the top ten XRP and Stellar are in the green by a percent or two, the rest have declined by a similar amount. Following a day of Tether being the only coin in the red USDT is clawing back its peg as it approaches a dollar again. It is currently trading at $0.975 according to Coinmarketcap. In the top twenty Tezos is out in front adding a further 6% on the day as XTZ gets listed on Kraken. The rest have dropped back between 0-2 percent from Monday’s big pump. Dogecoin is falling further with a 3.5% loss on the day. Today’s fomo jump in the top one hundred is Aurora climbing 15% at the moment, closely followed by DigixDAO up a similar amount. Bytecoin and Icon are also doing well today rising 8-9 percent. Taking the hit is Digitex Futures which has been pumping for a couple of days, DGTX is down 12% on the day. Eternal Token is also dropping 10% at the moment. Total crypto market capitalization is currently at $213 billion. This is up 6.5% in 48 hours but down 3.5% from yesterday’s spike which took it to $221 billion. Trade volume doubled in 24 hours but has pulled back to around $16 billion at the time of writing. Markets have held this level for the past day which could signal further upsides as the week goes on.

How Much Money do we have to Lose Before we change our Economy?

Today current inflationary monetary policy constantly devalues our money. For people who don’t trade stocks or have enough money to buy real estate, there’s no other way to counter inflation than to hold money in banks and savings accounts, only to cover the loss from inflation. But many countries currently have a negative interest rate to promote spending instead of saving, which provides a supposed boost to the economy, but at the same time it means that you lose your funds even when you store them in the bank. If a family with an average annual US salary of $52,000 starts to save money for college upon the birth of a child, they should save at least $13,500 per year to save the amount of $270,000 for, let’s say, four years at Harvard. But the inflation from the past 20 years would make it lose half of its value! Thus, in reality, they would have to save $20,600 over 20 years to keep up with inflation - nearly half of the average annual salary! How did we come to this kind of monetary world and how can the blockchain help change it? We would like to thank the team at Kinesis for their contributions to the design and implementation of the research and to the analysis of the result. The abandonment of the gold standard The current monetary system is a new invention. For centuries, every currency issued by any government was backed by gold and/or silver, mostly gold. This is called the gold standard. Any country had exactly as much money in circulation as they had precious metals in its reserve funds. But this all changed after the Great Depression. This worldwide crisis was so severe that all countries were forced to abandon the gold standard - they simply didn’t have resources to recover their economies after the great market crash of 1929, which was caused by many factors, but mostly by banks losing their funds in an overheated stock market. In this situation, printing money out of thin air to pay for all expenses seemed like a good idea. First the UK and then the US, and many other countries, switched to fiat currencies and this helped to recover the world economy. For many people, money is just money; they don’t understand the economy, and governments can print enough to cover any needs, because they don’t follow the gold standard anymore. Since then, the monetary policy has taken the form that we’re most accustomed to: the issuance of currencies is controlled by central banks, and since they have control over the supply, it gives them the power to manage economic variables such as credit supply, liquidity, interest rates, and money velocity by injecting or removing money from the system. However, as it’s not backed by a commodity such as gold, it only has value because everyone agrees it does. This approach creates many problems because the value of every national currency heavily depends on the actions of its government. The recent example of the Turkish lira highlights just this. After a quarrel over tariffs with the US, the lira plunged more than 25%, entering a downward spiral when many debt holders began getting rid of their holdings. The government, instead of making any statements to calm down investors, worsened the situation by staying quiet. Only a week later had they released a statement about raising the rate, which barely managed to ease tensions. At the same time, the conditions of Turkish economy stayed the same; the downfall was caused by the change of sentiment. The same situation happened in 2014 with the Russian rouble, when a set of sanctions coupled with falling oil prices, that Russia is heavily dependent on, halved the rouble’s value. Currently, the situation in the country’s economy is a lot better than it was four years ago, but the currency is still 50% cheaper, meaning that its purchasing power has been halved, and all imported goods, including household electronics and gadgets now cost twice as much. The rouble stays undervalued due to imposed sanctions and the political risk of new possible sanctions. We can add a lot more countries to this list, but you get the idea. The most unpleasant moment from all this: many governments can’t stop printing money, because they spend more than they earn by collecting taxes. To raise money, they issue government bonds, and pay a fixed interest to all debt holders. To pay off the interest, they print more money, thereby increasing inflation. Our monetary system is debt-based. The problem is that some countries, like the US, can’t stop borrowing from other countries, and they have an astronomical debt of $21.6 trillion. Other countries place their resources in US treasuries, because the payouts are stable, and the US dollar is the global reserve currency. As long as their economy grows, it’s sustainable. But what happens when this growth ends? Nobody knows it yet, but at the same time it’s obvious: they borrow all the time, and the whole world, including me and you, pays for it from our own pockets.

Looking for a community feedback!✨

Hey, DigixDAO community! I’ll be happy if you can check my [analytical project](https://coinsocialstory.com/#utm_source=reddit&utm_campaign=digixdao%20checking), which I’ve been working on in my spare time the last few months.⚡️ Here I’m rating crypto-currencies and tokens by different criteria, such as price, social, development and network. Every cryptocurrency has it’s own page (for example, [here](https://coinsocialstory.com/digixdao) is yours) For if I want to put the history of each coin in it, I might need your help! If you can tell me something about the DigixDAO history, it would be very cool. You can write me here or on my email address[ coinsocialstory@gmail.com](https://www.reddit.com/). Besides that, I really want to hear some feedback from you about the project itself cause there is still a lot of work to do:) Your opinion is highly appreciated and I will be glad to see any advice and suggestions!...

Why does digixdao move so strange?

Sometimes when everything goes down, DGD goes up. Other times it follows with the market also going down. When the market recovers it seems to go down. From what I understand DGD gives voting rights for digix. How does this contribute to the price movements?...

Could you make a simple video explaining the concept?

I've just spent 20 minutes on tradingview in the cypto channel trying to explain to the chat the difference between DGD and DGX and what their respective roles will be. I know its simple, but apparently the website is not simple enough for the average ppl that are interested in crypto and trading (which suggests at least a basic understanding of blockchain) still don't get what you are trying to do after all these years...

Potentiality of Digix gold token

It seems the Digix Global team think Digix gold tokens can be included in MakerDAO's collateral, can be used to make a market on Augur, can faciliate P2P lending.R But the use case of Digix gold token is far beyond this. Recent correlation of DGD token and BTC is negative, it is an indicator that DGD is viewed by the market as a hedge of BTC because Digix gold token is the real digital gold which could challenge the position of BTC. IMO Digix has more potentiality of just being a collateral or facilitating the market making, a stable, fungible, peer-to-peer transferable value medium is much needed and is the foundation of the boom of the entire blockchain digital economy. ...

The Perfect Storm

I'm not seeing much activity here, so I'll help spark the discussion. Anyone else think we are seeing the perfect storm for this coin? With DGD going up so much while the entire market is taking a dump, all eyes are on this project. Not only that, but with all the major Tether FUD recently, the market is looking for a new stable coin. Couple that with the fact that DGX should be launching next month, and it seems we have the perfect storm. I'm definitely looking at this project as a serious long term hold. I haven't had this same gut feeling about a project since Antshares, and that sure worked out well for me. Besides DGX, one of the major alluring factors to DGD is that holders will receive DGX rewards from transaction fees on a quarterly basis. That gives this project some serious value in regards to long term holding as opposed to trading. Finally, the DigixDAO is still holding over 450k+ Ethereum from the ICO. That's some serious underlying value to back this whole thing up. For more info on how DigixDAO will function, I recommend you check out this helpful Medium post. https://medium.com/@colbymort/digixdao-the-future-of-gold-a-solid-investment-cdcd68ff4735...
