The State of The Market - January 14, 2019 BTC: $3,595.18 (-2.03%) XRP: $0.322755 (-3.02%) ETH: $118.97 (-5.31%) Bitcoin continued to decline in value, with the total market cap losing $9 Billion over the weekend. Bitcoin failed to hold on to its support at $3,600 and is trading just below that right now. With the trade volume going down, we may see Bitcoin testing its support at $3,000 once again in the next few days. Also, Ethereum is losing more on a daily basis when compared to XRP, further dividing the gap between the two in terms of market cap. Tron is up by 5% in the last 24 hours, making it the only top cryptocurrency in green right now. In other news, the $1,000 Bitcoin puzzle in a Paris Street Mural has already been solved. On January 7th, a street artist named Pascal Boyart painted a mural in celebration of the 10th birthday of Bitcoin Genesis block. In less than one week, someone has managed to solve the puzzle to claim 0.28 BTC. Also, Billionaire Michael Novogratz and his wife Sukey Cáceres have donated an undisclosed amount to Princeton, in which they are alumni of. They referred to their donation as their "2017 crypto winnings." Princeton students will have the opportunity to work in countries such as Bolivia, China, India, Indonesia, or Senegal during their gap year through the "Novogratz Bridge Year Program." 1) tZERO has completed issuing its security tokens after raising $134 Million from over 1,000 investors globally in a Security Token Offering (STO). Founded in 2014, tZERO is a part of Medici Ventures, Overstock.com's blockchain subsidiary. Its ultimate goal is to revolutionize the traditional Wall Street industry with Blockchain. The tokens were issued to investors who had fully executed Simple Agreements for Future Equity (SAFEs). The tokens were initially issued to a custodial wallet and locked up for 90 days to follow federal securities laws. After it expired on January 10, 2019, these tokens were issued to investors globally in less than 3 days. tZERO's trading platform is scheduled for launch on August 6, 2019. 2) As 2018 came to a close, Nvidia announced that it would shift its focus away from developing processor chips for cryptocurrency mining. The company explained that it would focus more on research and development for artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics and the company is making good on this promise right at the start of 2019. Proof of this comes from a 13,000 square foot robotics research lab which just officially opened in Seattle. The facility hosts 20 Nvidia roboticists and 30 academic experts. One project being pursued is the development of "cobots" which are designed to work alongside humans and Nvidia head researcher Dieter Fox explained that "pulling together recent advances in perception, control, learning, and simulation, we can help the research community solve some of the greatest challenges in robotics." Nvidia also has an AI research lab in Toronto, Canada where researchers are working on computer vision, self-driving cars and graphics. 3) The first 2 weeks of 2019 have been busy for the IOST team as it has multiple announcements and developments as it prepares for its Mainnet launch in March.

Crypto Wipeout: Who Are The Big Losers?

The market has decided to test the already fractious nerves of investors and plunge in value. Crypto price sites are a sea of red right now; it’s like November never ended... Cryptocurrency’s total value practically went off a cliff at just before 06:00 GMT this morning. The market cap went from a princely $138bn to $130bn in the space of an hour. Although crypto stabilized for a few hours, prices began to fall again as the European and American markets opened in turn. At 16:00 GMT, crypto was valued at $127bn but has since fallen by a further $7bn. The market’s total value came to $122bn, at the time of writing: that’s a 12% over the course of the day. This makes today the single biggest wipeout since the Christmas crash. Which coins are most affected? Out of the top ten, the biggest losers seem to be Ether (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), both of which have seen 15% cut from their market valuations in the past 24 hours. EOS and Litecoin (LTC) aren’t far behind though, with each seeing 14% drops in the same timeframe. Although still affected by today’s crash, XRP has performed slightly better and has actually superseded ETH to become the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap. Tron (TRX), which had been on a strong rally earlier this week, has lost nearly all of it’s gains. From a market cap high of $2.2bn, which it reached this morning, the coin is now back down $1.7bn. Excluding the stable coin Tether (USDT), Bitcoin (BTC) is the coin in the top-ten which has fared the best today. Still that’s a drop of 9%, taking BTC below the $4,000 mark it had been hovering around all week. It is currently trading at $3,700, it’s lowest valuation since the end of December. It could fall back down to its yearly 15-month low of $3,200 if the trend continues. Other notable losses outside the top-ten also include coins which had performed well earlier in the week. Pundi X (NPXS), which had seen a sudden surge yesterday, is now down by over 20%; IOST, which had 30% added to its market cap on Monday, was also down by 20%. What’s behind the crypto wipeout? There are currently a few ideas going around. Data collected by CryptoCompare suggests that most of the sell-offs in the morning were denominated in Japanese Yen (JPY) and the Thai Baht (THB). This suggests that it was Asian investors who began the sell-off, which may have now spread to Western markets as the day wore on. This may not be the only reason, however. David Thomas, the CEO of GlobalBlock, a London-based cryptocurrency broker, believes bearish news may partly be behind the wipeout. The Ethereum Classic (ETC) reorg on Monday as well as rumors of a potential whale moving $68m worth of ETH onto an exchange, may have spooked investors. He also added that the sell-off may be a quick reaction to traders making a quick profit from high prices. “ETH has risen off its lows before Christmas by some 80%,” he wrote. “Any weakness can often lead to a trigger of profit taking from those that managed to catch the lows around $82 in December.” The author is invested in digital assets, including BTC and ETH which are mentioned in this article.

Daily Berminal Brief: Thailand Approves New Crypto Exchanges, And Huobi Begins Operations In Japan

The State of The Market - January 10, 2019 BTC: $3,826.65 (-5.60%) XRP: $0.347118 (-6.12%) ETH: $134.45 (-11.68%) After holding on to its support at $4,000 for nearly three days, Bitcoin has crashed below that point once again. The crash was expected as it failed to clear its resistance at $4,100 after multiple tries. With Bitcoin bleeding, the entire market is in red right now. The total market cap lost more than $8.2 Billion in just one hour. None of the top 50 cryptocurrencies are in green right now. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is suffering the biggest loss, as it is down by 15% in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, XRP has overtaken Ethereum once again by market cap and is at the second spot right now. However, the difference in market caps between Ethereum and XRP is just above $100 Million. In other news, TRON has hired former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) attorney David Labhart as a chief compliance officer. Labhard will also work as co-general counsel at TRON. Also, a recently published reddit post broached the topic of whether TenX co-founder Julian Hosp dumped 2.22 million PAY tokens on Bittrex over the past two weeks. Today Hosp and TenX announced that he is leaving the company and Hosp uploaded a YouTube video of his announcement. Hosp described the decision to depart as mutual but neither he or TenX gave reasons for his departure. An address that Hosp claimed belonged to him on June 14, 2017, had been receiving 6,250 PAY tokens monthly and over the last 15 days, 2.22 million PAY tokens were sent to Bittrex from addresses allegedly connected to Hosp. 1) Thailand's Finance Ministry has granted operating licenses to four new cryptocurrency exchanges. The four new crypto businesses are Bitcoin Co, Bitkub Online Co Ltd, Satang Corporation Co Ltd, and Coins TH Co Ltd. The first three are crypto exchanges, and the fourth one is a broker and dealer. Meanwhile, regulators have denied the license to two businesses, Cash2Coins Co Ltd and Southeast Asia Digital Exchange Co Ltd for sub-standard maintenance system and Know Your Customer system. Also, the ministry is still considering one unnamed exchange. The Thai SEC issued a framework last year to legalize and regulate cryptocurrencies and ICOs. 2) Popular cryptocurrency exchange Huobi has started operating its Japanese division. To celebrate the launch, Huobi is giving away XRP worth 500 Yen (approx. $4.6) to new accounts. Huobi is the 4th largest cryptocurrency exchange with a volume of $615 million in the last 24 hours. Huobi fired a large number of employees late last year. However, the exchange maintains that it was necessary and it is still hiring people for emerging markets and core business. Huobi is now officially available in 130 countries. 3) The IOST ERC-20 election has seen a surge of interest from people, teams and organizations since it kicked off on Dec.21. Considering the high demand of applications, IOST has decided to lower the minimum amount of votes required to 2.1M. Besides, as per its statement, those who do not have any technical knowledge or experience could also participate in the Partner election as IOST will provide all the required support for the successful candidates. IOST states that all successful candidates will receive a share of 75% of the reward pool which consists of 4% of total supply (840M IOST tokens). IOST has seen double-digit growth for a few consecutive days due to its rapid progress in development over the past few months. (VS)

Next-gen Blockchain IOST is Gearing Up for Mainnet Launch, Now Accepting Node Applications

IOST, a next-generation blockchain is getting ready to compete with legacy networks like Ethereum and EOS with their Mainnet set to launch in less than 50 days time. With their innovative consensus mechanism, governance model and reward sharing across the network, IOST is aiming to take significant market share by delivering a more decentralised version of EOS with speeds 400x faster than Ethereum, 6000 TPS expected at mainnet launch. Demand is expected to be high as IOST uses a novel reward sharing and incentive mechanism for both Nodes and network users. IOST token holders are rewarded for staking and voting for nodes, and nodes benefit from block production rewards as well as a fee sharing mechanism from users on-boarded onto the network. This means that product and service providers like Dapp development teams, exchanges and wallet providers that run a node, can also generate significant revenue by user acquisition alone. In an industry first, the network launch will be supported by an ERC-20 election for the initial nodes. Voters are highly incentivized to take part to ensure fairness and decentralisation - tokens staked and voted will receive an annualized 25% return. As holding and staking tokens will be highly profitable, IOST is expecting increased demand in the run-up to Mainnet launch. Importantly, Node operation and voting are extremely easy with no technical barrier to get involved. With IOST’s innovative voting GUI, anyone can easily set up a node or stake and vote with their tokens. By removing the technical barrier of participation that is present on platforms like Ethereum and EOS, IOST should see much more interest from casual and non-technical crypto enthusiasts. As such, voter turnout is expected to be high and nodes that can effectively garner votes stand to generate significant profit. 2019 is looking to be an exciting year for IOST with recent news of a Coinbase listing, several high profile projects leaving EOS to join the IOST ecosystem and multiple Dapp teams receiving funding to build on the IOST platform. Applications are still open and IOST is encouraging interested parties to apply. IOST released the IOST Node handbook which includes full details and application procedure. IOST also recently released an explainer video to give new users a brief introduction to the network.

Lambda Debuts First Ever Blockchain Open-Source PoST Algorithm on GitHub

Lambda recently unveiled its transparent Proof-of-Space-Time (PoST) protocol with high-speed verification capabilities, repetition computation, and streamlined proofs. It is reportedly the first ever blockchain open source PoST algorithm available to developers on GitHub - the popular software development platform. Lambda PoST Algorithm In a press release issued on Tuesday (November 27, 2018), Lambda announced the launch of its PoST protocol which is available to developers around the world on GitHub. The Lambda PoST algorithm ensures streamlined project development and continuously random challenges on the blockchain via validator nodes. Commenting on the launch of the Lambda PoST protocol, the company’s co-founder and CMO, Lucy Wang, said: The PoST algorithm is a testament to our ingenuity and dedication to the Lambda project as our team of expert computer scientists utilize top technology innovations to continually improve data integrity proof processing on the blockchain. We are proud to have developed and now share the first-ever open source PoST algorithm with the developer community on GitHub and look forward to creating new ideas and research for distributed blockchain storage in the future. According to the announcement, interested developers can access the Lambda PoST protocol on GitHub. Revolutionizing the Decentralized Data Storage Arena PoST is a consensus algorithm for decentralized networks that enables communication between a storage provider and a verifier. The protocol allows a storage provider to inform a verifier of the details of file storage based on location and duration. The way the system works is that the storage provide generates valid PoST, complete with unique attributes to obtain rewards for storing the data. In a Medium article published by Lambda, the company outlined some of the advanced features of its algorithm. According to Lambda, its PoST algorithm offers several advantages over other decentralized file storage projects. For the company, the focus is firmly on ensuring that its protocol remains agile, iterative, and easy to use without becoming bogged down by technical issues that affect the development cycle. Earlier in the year, Ethereum World News reported that Lambda was one of the seven projects involved in the partnership with Bluehill - a blockchain technology incubator firm with a focus on dApp development within the IOST ecosystem. As part of the collaboration, the consortium hopes to develop blockchain-based solutions for content distribution, payment processing protocols, as well as, cybersecurity.

John McAfee Says ‘We’re in a Bear Market,’ But People Just Need to Relax

Bitcoin’s value is continuing to fall, dropping over 15 percent in the past 24 hours. Yet, according to John McAfee, there’s no need to panic. Winter to Be Followed by Glorious Spring Over the past few days, the crypto market has been on a downward spiral. The price of Bitcoin fell below $5,000 for the first time yesterday since October 2017, and it’s continuing to decline. At the time of writing, it’s valued at $4,459, according to CoinMarketCap. In 24 hours, it has dropped by 14.91 percent and it is down by 29.51 percent over the last seven days. Its market cap is now worth $78 billion. With the industry falling in value, the combined market is currently valued at $146.5 billion. However, it’s not just Bitcoin that is experiencing a drop in value. Ether - now in third place - is valued at $134 and has seen a 35.78 percent decline in seven days. XRP, which has replaced Ether in second place, seems to be weathering the storm a bit better. In 24 hours, it’s down by 6.91 percent and is valued at $0.45. Bitcoin Cash, which recently underwent a hard fork, hasn’t fared well from it. In the past 24 hours, it is down by 32.17 percent and, in seven days, it has dropped by 53.38 percent. It’s worth $243. Across the board, though, the market is a sea of red. Even coins that aren’t often spoken about are down. For instance, Holo, in 54th place, is down by 42 percent in seven days. IOST, in 62nd place, has seen a drop of 51.16 percent. Yet, despite all the doom and gloom, John McAfee, a Bitcoin bull, has told the community to relax. Taking to Twitter today, he tweeted: People have panicked. But there's no fucking need. We're in a bear market. They suck, yes, and not like a hooker with no teeth. But I'm 73 and have seen this dozens of times in many markets. Bear markets are like Winter. It's always followed by a glorious Spring. Fucking relax. — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) November 20, 2018 Responding to those who said hodling and thinking long-term is the way forward, he responded: Word. Long term is the only way smart people invest. But it is a difficult path and few can succeed n actually living a long term focus. Greed, fear and doubt will override the intellect in 99 out 100 seekers. Long term thinking requires enormous courage. It's not for the weak — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) November 20, 2018 The Market Is Still Growing Many will, no doubt, lose money during this bear market. Yet, for those who thought last December’s prices were going to continue into 2018 were clearly looking at it with rose-tinted glasses. Speculation and a fear of missing out (FOMO) were the driving factors during last year’s bull run. It wasn’t something that could have been sustained in the long run. Obviously, when prices were high, investors saw an opportunity and decided to sell, subsequently bringing the market to where it is now. In order for growth to be seen, it needs to be steady and people need to have trust in it. Whether or not institutional investor interest drives the market back up remains to be seen, but just because the market is down now doesn’t mean we should all jump ship. What do you think? Do you think the market will recover? Will it drop even further? Let us know in the comments below. Images courtesy of Shutterstock and Twitter/@officialmcafee.

Over $28 Billion Dumped in Crypto Market’s Largest Crash of The Year

FOMO Moments Crypto markets have been smashed; all currencies are in a world of pain. A massive dump has shaved almost $25 billion dollars, or over 11%, off cryptocurrency markets in one day alone. This represents one of the largest crashes of the year and maintains the notion that Bitcoin and its brethren will fall time and time again before things ever pick up. Bitcoin has fallen to its lowest level this year as over $700 was dumped in one big swoop around 12 hours ago. Smashing through $6,000 it fell to a yearly low of $5,545 before recovering to $5,650 dispelling all predictions that $6k was the bottom. Ethereum has also been smashed, dropping 13% to $178 and losing second place to XRP. The top ten is in a world of pain with almost every altcoin losing double figures compared to yesterday. Bitcoin Cash has been the biggest loser with a dump of over 18% taking it to $427. All of the rest are down between 11 and 13 percent, with the exception of XRP which has “only” lost 9.5% to $0.46, gifting it Ethereum’s second place by market cap. Equally massive losses have rocked the top twenty with Iota, Ethereum Classic and Zcash taking the biggest hits with over 15% dives. There have been no survivors and all cryptocurrencies in this group have lost double digits on the day. There is only one obscure altcoin pumping on fomo right now and that is Nasdacoin which has surged 300% in the past 24 hours. There is nothing on its website to set NSD apart from any other altcoin but according to Coinmarketcap it has gone to the moon today. Only the stablecoins are in the green at the moment, some even making it over their dollar pegs. Smaller cap altcoins such as IOST, Stratis, HyperCash and Ravencoin have suffered the biggest losses, which is over 20%. Total market capitalization has been smashed, dropping 11.5% in a single day down to a new yearly low of $181 billion and a record $28 billion loss. Markets have since pulled back to $185 billion which matches the last 2018 dip on September 12. As it stands cryptocurrency markets have lost 78% since January.
