Daily Berminal Brief: Mt. Gox To Return The Remaining Bitcoins Soon, And Binance Announces New Trading Pairs For IOST

The State of The Market - March 22, 2019 BTC: $4,050.03 (-0.15%) ETH: $138.53 (-0.06%) XRP: $0.314 (-0.30%) As Bitcoin failed to move past $4,100 yesterday, there was a minor crash. However, the bounce-back was swift and Bitcoin once again successfully defended its support at $4,000. With lower volumes in the weekend, it could once again test its resistance at $4,100 and even go past it. Most of the market is in green today, posting single-digit gains. The total market cap added nearly $2.5 Billion in the last 24 hours. In other news, Sirin Labs has announced a partnership with Ethereum wallet provider MyEtherWallet (MEW). Sirin Labs will soon integrate MEW in their Finney blockchain smartphone. Additionally, MyEtherWallet users can purchase the device through its mobile and web interface. Also, IOTA Foundation announced that its partnership with FCA-regulated fintech startup Zeux will permit the use of IOTA for in-store payments with merchants who accept Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. Zeux will launch in the EU in April and users preferring to pay with IOTA will select it and pay using the Apple Pay and Samsung Pay terminal. The IOTA tokens will automatically be deducted from the consumer’s wallet and the merchant will receive fiat. 1) Mt. Gox is set to return the remaining bitcoins to its users soon. In 2014, Mt. Gox, the largest cryptocurrency exchange at the time suffered a major hack. The thieves managed to steal some 850,000 BTC. It has been nearly 5 years, and victims are yet to receive any compensation. Its former CEO Mark Karpeles was even recently sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison in Japan. However, not everything is lost. Mt. Gox trustee Nobuaki Kobayashi has published a report that he still has access to over 141,000 BTC and 142,000 BCH. The document also discussed rehabilitation. Over the next few days, users will be notified if their claims for funds are accepted or rejected based on their previous applications. The criteria for approval is also not clear yet as some legitimate users claim they were denied. 2) Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange has announced new trading pairs for IOST. IOST enjoyed a successful mainnet launch last month, which was supported by all major exchanges. Just yesterday, Binance announced a trading competition to celebrate the Mainnet launch. The exchange is giving away 10,000 BNB for the top IOST traders. To make trading easy, IOST will also be tradable against BNB and USDT from today. These pairs will also be accounted for the trading competition. IOST had released its first DApp-Endless Game on Mar. 20, with transactions volumes breaking above 700M IOST on its very first day. Plus, IOST/BTC trading volume also tops on the Binance ranking board, totalling 9478.23BTC in the past 24 hours. According to IOST’s announcement on its official blog, more diverse DApps are in the pipeline. 3) This week the Federal Assembly of Switzerland voted to put cryptocurrency on equal footing as traditional assets. 99 members of the National Council supported a motion to bring forward a proposal which would apply the existing legislation of administrative and judicial authorities to cryptocurrencies. Giovanni Merlini, a liberal public representative in the lower house of the Federal Assembly, voted against the measure and claimed that “a large part of the crypto is completely anonymous, which favored extortion and money laundering.” It is yet to be seen whether holding crypto-assets to the same regulatory obligations as traditional assets is a positive or negative for Switzerland’s crypto sector. In December Swiss finance minister Ueli Maurer suggested that Switzerland should adapt existing rules to fit the needs of the industry instead of drawing up a new regulatory framework. (VS)

Zeux Lists IOTA for Crypto Payments at Retail Stores, Encouraging Its Wider Adoption

On March 21, the Zuex app team made an announcement through their Medium blog that the company has taken another step towards the cryptocurrency world. This time Zeux has added IOTA (MIOTA) to the list of its payment methods. IOTA will let you buy regular things at regular stores In a few weeks, regular buyers will be able to use IOTA to pay for goods and services in shops that are friendly towards Apple Pay and Samsung Pay systems. Zeux has got an FCA regulatory license. This company that works in the field of financial services is preparing to launch in the EU next month. In 2020, it intends to roll out to the US where it will be cooperating with a great number of stores - from ones selling grocery to coffee shops. We are excited to announce we are adding another #cryptocurrency #IOTA token for crypto #payments in @ZeuxApp https://t.co/MYnbon8btQ@iotatoken @frankjzhou @DavidSonstebo @DomSchiener @NickAyton @popochen888 @pomp— Zeux (@ZeuxApp) March 21, 2019 The platform will enable its customers to do several things in one place, i.e. conduct payments, store funds and invest them. The app will work both with fiat and cryptocurrencies. A beneficial cooperation The founder of IOTA, David Sønstebø, believes that by collaborating with Zeux his company will get IOTA adoption to a much higher level than the one the coin is standing on now. The CEO of Zeux, Frank Zhou, seems quite enthusiastic about helping to bridge the crypto industry with the world of traditional economy and fiat. He reckons that Tangle, the independent blockchain protocol used by IOTA, is a good basis for developing Dapps and that Zeux may use it for this purpose in the future. In an interview, Zhou shared that he is glad that Zeux will be able to give IOTA users more financial freedom. Zeux and other crypto coins About a week ago, the banking app added another digital coin to its arsenal of financial tools - Qtum. Once the app launches, its users will also be able to pay for goods with this coin or invest it. Earlier than that, the app teamed up with Bitcoin SV, so now this token will also be used by Zeux customers. Crypto adoption via retail payments Many experts and crypto enthusiasts are certain that massive adoption of decentralized digital currencies first of all depends on user awareness and opportunities to conduct everyday payments. Some crypto coins are already accepted by numerous merchants thanks to many apps and payment systems, such as Spend app, CoinGate, TravelbyBit, etc. Tron and BitTorrent offer their own card which enables users to spend these two coins, TRX and BTT, directly, with no third-party apps.

Is The IOTA On A Step Forward To Decentralization?

Znet is now open to the world, and this is according to the latest reports by IOTA. The official launch of Znet has made headlines as this stands out as the flagship of a testnet that has done away with the role of a Coordinator. However, Znet in the last few weeks has been operational with ample room now created for participation and contributions from members of the community. The coordinator-less (or Coo-less/CLIRI) function was innovated in response to criticisms hauled against IOTA because of its minimal decentralization. The IOTA development team now have a window to address possible challenges that may arise with the mainnet as the test phase opens. Coordicide: A Network Without A Coordinator The IOTA decision to release a new testnet driven without a Coordinator is seen as a significant step towards decentralization. As initially designed, the IOTA network was designed to run on the Tangle, and the processes portrayed a semblance of centralization. In fact, over the past year, feelers from IOTA Foundation indicated that plans were afoot to strip the network of any Coordinator role. The Coordinator’s role has largely served a security purpose in the IOTA consensus algorithm. The Coordinator was a safeguard functionality against double spends on the network as a result of the less than optimal hashing power available in the security infrastructure. Reasons for Removing the Coordinator Role The IOTA decision to remove the Coordinator role from the platform is now referred to as “Coordicide.” To date, the criticism of IOTA revolved around the centrality of the Coordinator’s duties, which in itself acted as a limiting factor to IOTA scalability. The Coordinator functionality was a needed aid utilized by IOTA foundation in deciding the transactions to give top priority. Additionally, the Coordinator also determined when funds needed to be frozen in the transaction chain. As is the case with most blockchains, the trade-off between decentralization, security, and speed is a tricky one. So, in this case, as a nudge towards decentralization, the Coordinator function needed to be done away with as a big step forward. IOTA has kept its position as a leading cryptocurrency since 2018, and it is expected that the new development will further boost its fortunes. A close look at a credible source of cryptocurrency reports and data reveals a positive outlook for IOTA going forward. IOTA Foundation and Community Participation With the new system, there is a requirement for IOTA Foundation to validate all initiated transactions (pending milestones) as a step in the authorization process. All transactions that arise in the process will receive an immediate confirmation. It might have looked straightforward to remove the Coordinator from the network, but the process of discontinuing the transmission of milestones is a nut to crack. The old order still shows a semblance here with Node synchronization, Point selection as well as Ledger state calculations. The team’s new plan is to eliminate all ledger validations entirely. In other words, the stated transaction validity will persist provided the defining prerequisite for PoW validation is fulfilled. This new version is expected to run on a zero-value basis as outlined in the design of the testnet So far, the team has gone to work to ensure code stability, resilience consolidation as well as to gather more information. All these and the allied analytics will help in gauging the network performance. Understandably, this is important in order not to play into the hands of hackers and online marauders. Conclusion To many watchers of the cryptocurrency and blockchain scene, the defining decision by IOTA is a major prompt towards uniting the Foundation and the community. In fact, according to Dom Schiener, they are looking forward to several tests and initiatives on the days ahead in order to enhance the protocol’s efficiency. The news about the introduction of znet as a Coordinator-Less Testnet has been received eagerly by most IOTA enthusiasts. In fact, the report on the new testnet is already gathering momentum on Reddit, and to many people, this development is a step in the right direction.

Dash Ranks Higher After Boosting Internet Free Charity Model for Venezuela

For the first time, Dash cryptocurrency is moving beyond crypto ecosystem. The SMS based Dash Wallet or Text Wallet has launched a new charity system which is completely automatic and helps the needy immediately. Following the launch, trading volume of Dash cryptocurrency is picking up the positive figures. Dash Took New Move At press time, the value of one DASH coin against the US dollar is trading at $94.31, surging with 3.13 percent over the past 24 hours. Per the average market cap, Dash is sitting comfortably at 15th spot with a little difference by IOTA which has lost 1.53 percent during the past 24hours. Internet Fee Blockchain Charity System Dash Text Wallet’s distributed charity model is one of the recent strong pointers that likely influenced the total volume of DASH cryptocurrency. As claimed officially, it is one of the ‘world’s first distributed charity model’ - which is an automated, irrespective of the place where a doner resides. This is powered by DASH coin and works simply without an internet connection. The doner can send DASH cryptocurrency to a specific donation address using SMS-based Dash Wallet. All such Donations will then be evenly and instantly distributed among the people who really need it. At the same time, recipients will also have Dash Text wallets which let them send/receive SMS using its official wallet and access to the funds in need. 📣 @dash_text has launched a new pilot #cryptocurrency service which might be the world’s first distributed #charity model at a school in Caracas, #Venezuela! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦❤️🙏 Children have used #Dash donations to buy over 1,000 lunches & 900 beverages.Learn more: https://t.co/nFGz4IWjPI pic.twitter.com/ApdqLj4fuY — Mark Mason (@StayDashy) March 18, 2019 However, such donations will help beneficiaries buy food, medicines and other essential items along with enabling them to learn how to use cryptocurrencies. At the moment, the charity program is in a pilot phase, majorly focusing on helping poor students at the School in Caracas, Venezuela. The pilot project was considering 50 students who reportedly used donations to buy 1000+ lunches and 900 beverages. This was possible with donations of at least 60 transactions made every day. A donation initiative by DASH text wallet contributes a major boost for the Venezuelans, especially for those who are battling with poor economic and infrastructure within the country. Following the success of inception and ongoing effort of this program, Lorenzo Rey, the Dash Text Wallet Co-founder says; “Whenever someone makes a donation through our system, the money gets immediately and equally distributed amongst the people you’re donating to, this is completely transparent and traceable on the blockchain, the money is never touched by a human third party inside our system, it is all automated and happens in just a few seconds. Recipients receive a confirmation SMS which might include the name and country of the person who donated. There is no system like this in the world today, all charity donations, including crypto charities, right now require some sort of human intermediation,” Beside this, DASH has also partnered with Bitrefill which is a mobile top-up and a gift card service provider. The partnership would help DASH’s donation campaign in terms of reducing the top up cost of mobile phones. So readers, what do you think about DASH helping Venezuelans? share your opinion with us.

IOTA 4-Hour Chart - Source: Tradingview.com Despite a brief rise above the resistance level, sellers quickly brought the price back below, and the momentum has been with the sellers in recent price action. Both the 4-hour RSI and MACD are also decreasing reflecting the seller momentum. The 4-hour MACD is approaching the centerline to the downside which is often taken as a strong bearish signal. Key Takeaways: Both IOTA and Tron have been consolidating for several weeks with high levels of uncertainty from traders. Tron has broken a series of lower highs forming but seems to have met resistance at $0.0235 and is falling in recent price action. IOTA has been forming an ascending triangle pattern.

Crypto Market Wrap: Could Cooling Off Lead to a Weekend Dump?

Crypto markets cooling as we end the week; EOS drops to fifth, IOTA and NEO still buoyant, Crypto.com surges. Market Wrap There have been no further gains on crypto markets over the past 24 hours and they appear to be starting a pullback as we round out the week. Total market capitalization has remained over $130 billion but red is starting to infiltrate the charts indicating that this run at least could be over for now. Bitcoin hit $3,940 again but that was as high as it got and heavy resistance forced it back down again. Generally there has been very little movement in BTC prices over the past day and it has dropped back a little to $3,915 where it currently trades. Ethereum has also started to break down over the past day as it drops almost 2% back to $137. ETH prices are back to where they were this time last Friday after a Monday dump to below $130. XRP has been even weaker as the market cap gap expands again to $1.4 billion. The Ripple token as dropped another 1.5% taking it back to $0.314. Every crypto asset in the top ten is red during today’s Asian trading session. EOS, Bitcoin Cash and Tron are dropping the most at almost 3% each. Litecoin has retaken fourth spot as it remains relatively stable on the day, however the gap between LTC and EOS is only $50 million so a reflippening could occur soon. There are a couple of beacons of green in the top twenty at the time of writing. IOTA is making a rare move upwards with almost 3% added and Bitcoin SV and NEO are close behind with a 2% gain on the day. Ontology is still bullish with a 5% climb today but the rest are falling back marginally. FOMO: Crypto.com Chain Climbing CRO is getting a big pump today as it surges 44% to $0.020. Daily volume has over doubled to $600 million as the new Chain token gathers momentum with crypto powered Visa cards. The firm has just hired Rovio Executive, Kasim Zorlu, to the leadership team as SVP Head of Growth to drive customer acquisition. Enjin Coin is also spiking at the moment with 40% on the day as the gaming platform continues to expand. Aurora is not far behind with a 32% fomo pump. There are no double digit dumps going on at the moment in the top one hundred but ABBC Coin is cooling off after its epic surge as it drops 8%. Total market cap 24 hours. Coinmarketcap.com Total crypto market capitalization has remained the same as these low cap coins do not really impact the market as a whole. A slight decline has dropped cap back to $133 billion but daily volume has remained high at $30 billion. Could this cooling lead to another dump over the weekend? Resistance remains strong so it is very possible.

Best IOTA Wallets

The Internet of Things Application (IOTA) is a distributed ledger that was developed to record and execute transactions between different machines in the IOTA ecosystem. Developers of IOTA had the vision of addressing transaction charges and scalability problems within the blockchain through removing the block and chain. In the near future, IOTA will facilitate easy payments within objects that have sensors. With the IOTA verification system, there is no need for having a central ledger. This verification method is known as a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). However, IOTA developers refer to it as Tangle. Within the Tangle system, the computing power grows alongside the entire network resulting in free and instant transactions. At the same time, miners do not require to power the system. The IOTA network uses the MIOTA token. Best Wallets For IOTA Before selecting a wallet, put into consideration factors like security, user-friendliness and transaction charges. Here are some of the best IOTA wallets that guarantee the safety of your assets. Nelium Wallet The Nelium wallet is among the best IOTA wallets based on its user interface that simplifies the entire transaction process.

The design of this wallet makes it easy for beginners to monitor their assets as well as conduct transactions. The wallet eliminates the need for manual reattaching, node and address changes. With the Nelium wallet, instead of manually getting the recipient’s address, the sender can select the receiver via a phonebook, enter the amount, and send the funds. On the safety aspect, The Nelium wallet is among the most secure IOTA hot wallets. You are in control of your funds because your seed is stored locally on your device and not the Nelium servers.

Guarda Wallet Apart from supporting IOTA tokens, the Guarda wallet also supports other assets like BTC and Ethereum. It is among the best IOTA wallets because it is designed to store, manage, transfer and receive cryptocurrency tokens. It is an Android and iOS light wallet that comes with an option to buy coins with a banking card and top up wallets via built-in exchange service. On the security aspect, the Guarda wallet allows users to store their private keys locally. All private keys delete themselves once you log out of the wallet. Furthermore, unlike other wallets, with Guarda, you don’t need an account to conduct your transactions. It eliminates the need for complicated verification processes. The non-registration feature is available on both mobile and desktop versions. IOTA Wallet for Android It is the official wallet by the IOTA team.

All you have to do is download, install and start managing your tokens. On security features, it ranks top among best IOTA wallets. It has features like QR code scanner, seed generator, password protection. Additionally, users have the ability to monitor the current IOTA balance in various currencies. The developers also incorporated a live Tangle explorer that comes with search functionality. IOTA Wallet Ledger The IOTA Ledger Nano S ranks top among IOTA best wallets due to its reputation in the market. Over the years, the Ledger Nano S has gained popularity as one of the most secure hardware wallets. Apart from IOTA, the wallet supports other multiple cryptocurrencies.

German Security Firm Looking At Car Wallet For IOTA Payments

The tech firm, Accessec is a security company based in Germany and they have recently announced a new vehicle-based wallet that will enable cars to automatically buy fuel or charging services through the utilisation of the MIOTA token. Last week, the security firm showed off its new Car Wallet to the public last week which is integrated with the vehicle. The wallet will interact with a point of sale terminals automatically when it comes to buying fuel or other vehicle-related services. The wallet will be able to start services like authorising a battery-point to start charging and pay the amount due directly to the merchant. A research consultant at Accessec, Sven Feuchtmüller said that drivers only need to ensure that the two hardware components are physically close enough to interact. Writing in an email to Crypto Briefing, Feuchtmüller said, “In the car-and-charging-station example, one could simply drive towards the station and plug in the charger... [A]uthorization and payments would be automatically done by your car in the background.” The car wallet is going to be based on the Tangle mainnet and will use MIOTA tokens to transfer value to merchants. The co-founder of the IOTA Foundation, Dominik Scheiner said that the firm is “very excited” by the news and the benefits it could bring to the ecosystem are limitless. Continuing on from this, he said: “Companies like Accessec who are building actual products on top of IOTA help us to accelerate the adoption and importance of IOTA in industry and make it easier for companies across all industries to capture value out of the offering of IOTA.” The security firm was asked if any firms or vehicle manufacturers had expressed an interest in the technology but they refused to comment on the matter. Accessec has worked with IOTA in the past too as they performed an audit on the Trinity Wallet project int eh months running up to the wallet’s beta launch in August last year. In terms of the price of the MIOTA token, the cryptocurrency is currently priced at $0.28 following a 1.33 percent decrease over the past 24 hours. At the current time of writing, MIOTA is sat as at the 14th biggest cryptocurrency in the space with a market cap of $781,845,468.

Ripple, ConsenSys, and Another 103 Founders Set to Sign-off on International Blockchain Association

Earlier today, 105 founding members signed-off on the International Association of Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA). This move marks a crucial milestone for the blockchain's adoption. Ripple, ConsenSys, Quant Network (QNT), the IOTA Foundation, Gnosis (GNO), and Unibright (UBT) are among the 105 founding members. Both the European Union and the European Blockchain Partnership (EPB) support INATBA, which seeks to help the blockchain and other DLTs overcome scaling difficulties. INATBA's next move would be the founding members reaching an agreement on the course of action to take in the short-term. (VK)

New Car Wallet Allows Automatic IOTA Payments

A German tech security firm has revealed a new vehicle-based wallet that will allow cars to automatically purchase fuel or charging services with MIOTA tokens. Accessec demonstrated its new Car Wallet to the public last week. Integrated into the vehicle, the wallet interacts automatically with point-of-sale terminals. It can initialize services, such as authorizing a battery-point to begin charging, and pay the amount due directly to the merchant. According to Sven Feuchtmüller, a research consultant at Accessec, drivers only need to ensure that the two hardware components are physically close enough to interact. “In the car-and-charging-station example, one could simply drive towards the station and plug in the charger,” he wrote in an email to Crypto Briefing. “[A]uthorization and payments would be automatically done by your car in the background.” The Car Wallet is based on the Tangle mainnet, and uses MIOTA tokens to transfer value to merchants. Dominik Schiener, co-founder of the IOTA Foundation, told Crypto Briefing that the foundation is “very excited” by the news and the benefits it could bring to the IOTA ecosystem. “Companies like Accessec who are building actual products on top of IOTA help us to accelerate the adoption and importance of IOTA in industry and make it easier for companies across all industries to capture value out of the offering of IOTA,” he said. Asked if any companies or vehicle manufacturers had expressed an interest in the technology, Accessec declined to comment. What else is IOTA up to? IOTA has focused on bridging the gaps between DLT and the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) sector. With many appliances automatically sending data to manufacturers and other devices, the Tangle is designed to facilitate fast, seamless and highly scalable machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and payments. The Tangle is a DAG protocol, in which users verify prior transactions whenever they send payments. In theory, this makes the network inexpensive and highly scalable: an ideal protocol for the Internet of Things, where machines could potentially exchange thousands of micro-payments. Data collected by the Tangle Explorer show that the network currently processes a little under five transactions per second (TPS). That’s roughly the same throughput as the Bitcoin (BTC) network. In January 2018, IOTA signed a partnership with the government of Taipei, the Taiwanese capital, to explore how the Tangle could be incorporated into the city’s new ‘smart city’ initiatives. Taipei’s authorities announced a new identification system, using the Tangle protocol, last June. The Car Wallet isn’t IOTA’s first foray into the automobile sector. The project has been working closely with Volkswagen to integrate the Tangle into the carmaker’s new Connect feature, allowing drivers to check how many miles their cars have driven. At the time, the feature was expected to launch sometime in Q1 of this year, as Crypto Briefing reported last June. This isn’t the first time Accessec has worked with IOTA. The company performed an audit on the project’s Trinity Wallet in the months running up to the wallet’s beta launch in August of last year. Although the new IOTA car wallet will first be used for vehicles, Accessec believes that the software has wide-ranging applications. It can be used in “literally any use case where some actor buys some service from some Point-of-Sale (or another actor),” wrote Feuchtmüller, “where proper authentication and security are paramount.” The author is invested in digital assets, including BTC which is mentioned in this article.

Crypto Market Update: EOS and Litecoin Lead Recovery As Crypto Street Turns All Green

Well after a sluggish start to the week, crypto markets were resurgent again and produced a small rally with the overall market cap rising by USD 6 billion. While Bitcoin could break the shackles to cross USD 4000, XRP and Bitcoin Cash just could draw a modest growth of below 2% Sentiments drive the rally, Fundamentals unchanged While nothing much having changed fundamentally, most coins seem to have sprung off the ground after some sell-off over the weekend and at the start of the week. EOS and Litecoin were the culprits last week that bought the market down and now after remaining in an oversold territory have sprung back to revival. Technically now Litecoin is back above the USD 50 mark which has added positivity to the sentiment. Source: Coinmarketcap.com With EOS and Litecoin both rising over 10 % the sentiment in the market has turned positive. Bitcoin too rallied from USD 3700 to USD 3900 and is hovering around USD 3880. While the sentiment would had been further positive if the Top coin would have breached USD 4000 levels, but it ran out of steam indicating that this really is going to be short-lived. Binance Coin(BNB) that was the hero whole of last week, too saw modest gains of 3.90 % cementing its 8th position on the charts while keeping its eye on Litecoin’s 7th position. Ethereum jump of around 6 % could be associated to the Swiss exchange ETP launch- where Swiss crypto startup Anum AG and the nation’s largest stock exchange, SIX, have announced the launch of an Ethereum exchange-traded product (ETP) according to the latter’s website. The news has come quietly quickly after the exchange first listed its Bitcoin exchange-traded product. But this spike still looks more sentimental here as well. With all top 20 coins in green the street clearly looks happy for now. Apart from Bitcoin SV, XRP and IOTA which have more of flatish gains, the surge has got in all joys to traders and investors. The best performer between number 11-20 is Maker which currently sits at 16th position and has a gain of over 7%. While all fingers are crossed for this rally to continue, things look really difficult until Bitcoin breaks through the USD 4000 barrier. Unless that is achieved, markets could recede back. Will this rally led by EOS and Litecoin sustain or fizzle out? Do let us know your views on the same.

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

Crypto Market Remains At Risk: EOS, Bitcoin Cash, TRX, ADA Price Analysis

The total crypto market cap is following a declining structure below the $128.0B resistance level. EOS price broke the key $3.55 and $3.50 support levels to move into a bearish zone. Bitcoin cash price traded below the $130 support and it could now test the $125 level. Tron (TRX) price extended losses below $0.0240 and it is now approaching the $0.0220 support. Cardano (ADA) price is currently sliding towards the key $0.0400 support level. The crypto market recovery remains at a risk of more losses. Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), EOS, BCH, ripple, tron (TRX), ADA and other altcoins could continue to weaken in the near term. Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis Recently, bitcoin cash price struggled to break the $135 resistance level and later declined against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair broke the $132 and $130 support levels to move into a bearish zone. The current price action is negative and it suggests that the price may decline further towards the $125 support level. On the upside, the main resistance is at $132, above which the price could recover towards the $135 resistance level. The risk remains to the downside as long as the price is below the $132 level. EOS, Tron (TRX) and ADA Price Analysis EOS price declined heavily from well above the $4.00 support. It broke the $3.80 and $3.65 support levels to trim most its gains. Recently, sellers pushed the price below the key $3.55 and $3.50 support levels. The price is now under pressure and it may continue to decline towards the $3.40 or $3.35 support zone. Tron price traded below the $0.0250 support level to enter a bearish zone. TRX recently declined below $0.0240 and it seems like sellers are aiming for the $0.0220 support level. On the upside, an initial resistance is at $0.0235, followed by the $0.0240 level. Cardano price remained in a downtrend and it recently broke the $0.0440 and $0.0420 support levels. ADA is about to test the $0.0400 support level, below which there is a risk of a sharp drop. On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $0.0420, $0.0425 and $0.0440 levels. Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap hourly chart, there were many failures near the $128.0B resistance level, resulting in a sharp decline. The market cap recently broke the $125.0B and $124.0B supports to set the pace for more losses. It is currently following a declining channel with resistance at $125.0B on the same chart. The technical structure suggests that the crypto market cap is under pressure and it could slide towards the $122.0B and $120.0B support levels in the near term. Therefore, there could be more losses in bitcoin, ETH, XRP, tron, bitcoin cash, litecoin, EOS, stellar, IOTA and other altcoins.

Ethereum Classic Price Gains 6% as Developers Mull ETH 2.0 Roadmap Implementation

Based on the current overall crypto market momentum, one would almost think the sky’s the limit. Such a train of thought is very dangerous to pursue among traders who want to pocket some profits over the weekend. While the Ethereum Classic price appears bullish at this time, one has to keep in mind its value tends to go up and down quite often. As such, chasing the top can easily cause some financial headaches. Ethereum Classic Price Rises Ahead of the Weekend In the cryptocurrency world, it is often difficult to determine what drives individual markets. While it is not uncommon for altcoins to derive value from Bitcoin and foremost, Ethereum Classic is seemingly a different creature in this regard. It too benefits fro bullish BTC momentum, although ETC usually does its own thing. Today is seemingly no exception in this regard. Over the past few hours, the Ethereum Classic price has risen by 6.6% to $4.77. Furthermore, there is a 5.8% gain over Bitcoin to bring that value to 0.0011986. Both of these trends are promising, yet they wouldn’t materialize without good trading volume. ETC Notes $218.43m in volume today, which is nearly half of its overall market cap. It is rather interesting to note how the ETC-related discussions on Twitter are evolving right now. Saturn Network is sharing a handy video guide regarding building new tokens and ICOs on top of Ethereum Classic. While this option has existed for quite some time now, it remains to be determined whether or not anyone will make use of this method. Planning your weekend? Why not BUIDL on Ethereum Classic. #ClassicIsCominghttps://t.co/uHYb9lWuBj#SaturnNetwork #Tokens #DEX #BUIDL #EthereumClassic #ETC #ERC223 — Saturn Network (@SaturnProtocol) February 22, 2019 It is also worth noting Ethereum Classic is currently live on the DEX trading platform. Although that is not the biggest exchange solution by any means, their list of support coins and tokens seems pretty solid. They also purposefully opted for not using Tether’s USDT stablecoin but list TrueUSD instead. Very interesting, as it creates a different onramp for ETC as well. Live on DCEX Monero IOTA Bitcoin Litecoin Ethereum OmiseGo Bitcoin cash DASHBitcoin Gold Zcash Ethereum classic XRP TrueUSDFiat on ramp TUSD#ripple #xrp #btc #ltc #eth #omg #bch #dash #btg #zec #etc #tusd #xmr #miota #dcex #dcexofficial — DCEX (@dcexofficial) February 22, 2019 Last but not least, it would appear the ETC core developers are currently mulling whether they should integrate the Ethereum 2.0 roadmap in the future. That in itself is a very interesting topic of debate. This roadmap would introduce a lot of interesting upgrades to ETC, although no final decisions have been made at this time. Definitely something worth keeping an eye on. @preston_vanloon and myself just had a really productive meeting with the $ETC core devs about adopting the #Ethereum 2.0 roadmap for $ETC. No commitments yet, video coming soon. @etclabscore @BobSummerwill @Yazanator — Joseph 0x29a Delong (@josephdelong) February 22, 2019 All of the developments behind the scenes appear to be working in favor of Ethereum Classic. That in itself is a bit of an unusual situation, although one many ETC holders will be quite pleased with. With this decent trading volume in place, the uptrend could, in theory, easily be resumed over the weekend. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Crypto Market Could Rally Further: EOS, Bitcoin Cash, TRX, ADA Price Analysis

The total crypto market cap is preparing for more gains above the $132.5B resistance level. EOS price gained more than 7% recently and broke the $3.80 and $3.85 resistances. Bitcoin cash price is consolidating below the key $150 resistance level. Tron (TRX) price moved back above the $0.0250 resistance, but there was no follow through. Cardano (ADA) price is grinding higher and it could soon test the key $0.0500 resistance area. The crypto market is primed for more gains, with bullish moves in bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). EOS, BCH, ripple, tron (TRX), ADA and other altcoins are likely to accelerate higher. Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis Bitcoin cash price remained well bid above the $142 and $145 support levels against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair tested the $150 resistance level recently and later declined. However, the $145 support acted as a solid buy zone and later the price bounced back. The price needs to gain strength above the $148 and $150 resistance levels to move further higher in the coming sessions. In the mentioned case, the price could revisit the $160 resistance zone. EOS, Tron (TRX) and ADA Price Analysis EOS price performed really well recently after it corrected lower from the $3.00 resistance. The price found support above the $2.70 support level and later bounced back. It is up more than 7% and moved above the $2.80 and $2.85 resistance levels. An immediate resistance is at $2.92, above which the price could test the $3.00 resistance zone in the near term. The key supports on the downside are $2.82 and $2.80. Tron price moved to and fro between the $0.0240 and $0.0255 levels. TRX price is currently traded above the $0.0250 resistance, but it must break the $0.0255 resistance to gain strength. The next main resistance is at 0.0262 and $0.0265. Cardano price remained well bid above the $0.0420 support area. ADA price recently broke the $0.0450 and $0.0465 resistance levels to set the pace for more gains. The current price action is positive and it seems like the price could continue to move higher towards the $0.0500 resistance area in the near term. Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap hourly chart, there is a solid uptrend in place above the $125.0B support area. The market recently corrected lower and tested the $127.00B level. Later, it bounced back above $130.0B and it seems like it could break the $131.0B and $132.5B resistance levels in the next few hours. If buyers gain strength, the market cap could surge towards the $135.0B and $140.0B levels. Therefore, there could be more upsides in bitcoin, ETH, XRP, tron, bitcoin cash, litecoin, EOS, stellar, IOTA and other altcoins.

Litecoin Up over 120% Since December Low, What’s Fueling Litecoin to Outperform Bitcoin

The 5th largest cryptocurrency Litecoin has been having a green February for the most part as it surges 59 percent in this month alone. At the time of writing, Litecoin has been trading at $51.50 with 24-hours gains of 6.03 percent. In the BTC market as well, it has been in the green by over 6 percent. While the top cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, XRP, Stellar, Tron, Cardano, Bitcoin SV, IOTA, and Monero have turned red by around 1 to 2 percent, it’s amazing that Litecoin is still holding gains. Since hitting the bottom in mid-December at below $23, Litecoin has climbed more than 120 percent, outperforming the top cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin. LTC price chart, Source: Coinmarketcap It is not only the Litecoin price that is surging, but the LTC/USD longs are also approaching its all-time high in November 2018. With the way the longs are spiking, there is a low possibility that a severe drop would be happening. LTC/USD Longs, Source: TradingView Litecoin Outperforming Bitcoin Meanwhile, the February month saw Litecoin trading volume going well above $1 billion. Currently, LTC is managing the daily trading volume of $1.54 billion which is seeing a slight increase from yesterday’s $1.4 billion, unlike Bitcoin’s daily trading volume that yesterday hit its highest at $9.9 billion in about 9 months only to now drop down to $8.8 billion. According to the data provided by Coin Metrics, on February 9th, the exchange volume went to $1.7 billion for LTC and the last time Litecoin’s daily trading volume has been above $1 billion has been a year back in February 2018. Litecoin Exchange Volume (USD), Source: Coin Metrics This is not the first time that Bitcoin has been outperforming Bitcoin by price and trading volume increment as the 5th largest cryptocurrency has historically led the Bitcoin rallies as well, as Joe McCann said, “Looking at how LTC has outperformed BTC since the epic selloff on November 14th 2018, we can see that LTC has outperformed BTC by better than 4:1 from current cycle low to current session high. As mentioned before, LTC has historically led BTC rallies...” In the first week of February, Litecoin price started seeing a surge on the grounds of Litecoin creator, Charlie Lee announcing new features in the form of fungibility and Confidential Transactions to be added on Litecoin. However, unlike the previous time, Litecoin Foundation took active steps this time by exploring Mimblewimble implementation and collaborating with Beam for this. Apart from the trading volume keeping the prices up, the on-chain transactions on Litecoin have been keeping stable around 20k. Even during the bear market, the transactions have held their ground that means speculators have fled from the Litecoin market, as noted by eToro senior analyst, Mati Greenspan, who further added, “Unlike Bitcoin, $LTC has already snapped its long term bearish trend line (yellow) at the beginning of the year. At the moment, there’s a strong psychological resistance at $50, but after that it’s smooth sailing #ToTheMoon.” Well, Litecoin has already crossed $51 and now with only about 168 days are left in Litecoin reward halving, it would be interesting to see where will this short-term rally lead to or if Litecoin is leading another rally to the peak!

IOTA Foundation Partners With UK Based NOVA to Support DLT Startups

Earlier this week the IOTA Foundation announced its most recent partnership with Liverpool-based cofoundery, Nova. The partnership will work towards increasing the number of startups that successfully utilize the next generation of Distributed Ledger Technology. Support and Guidance For Startups Using the IOTA Tangle Startups can apply for the program via the Nova Website. Once accepted, successful teams will have access to funding and mentorship geared towards developing innovative new business models using IOTA technology. With the support of both organizations, startups will have a foundation to realize their visions of implementing Distributed Ledger Technology to solve real life problems. Entrepreneurs will also have access to IOTA’s test lab to build and test their solutions on the Tangle. David Sønstebø, co-founder and co-chair at IOTA, explained how the partnership will help transform ideas into sustainable business models. The Tangle network overcomes many of the limitations and inefficiencies of blockchain technology, and as such, has huge potential to transform machine to machine transactions that are at the core of IoT.

New Nova and IOTA Foundation Partnership Promises Breakaway Growth for IOTA Entrepreneurship

The Berlin-based IOTA Foundation has forged a new alliance with Nova, a startup cofoundery that promises to help aspiring entrepreneurs in turning “good ideas into great companies.” Both entities have agreed to combine their resources to create a seed fund for entrepreneurs working on distributed ledger technologies. At the core of this partnership is the vision to make it easier for up-and-coming technology startups to adopt Tangle, a type of distributed ledger that powers the IOTA ecosystem. Tangle promises to make decentralized transactions cheaper and quicker by offering a more scalable and highly adaptable alternative to the blockchain. Funding and Mentorship for IOTA-based Startups The partnership between Nova and the IOTA Foundation is aimed at addressing the underlying reasons that often restrict the scope and reach of tech startups. The seed fund is only a part of that gameplan. In addition to offering financial aid to entrepreneurs harnessing the Tangle, the IOTA Foundation will also open up its test lab for startups to build, improve, and test their Tangle-based solutions. Nova will chip in with its expertise in mentoring would-be entrepreneurs. The Liverpool-based startup cofoundery will lend its tech startup team comprising 20+ startup consultants for the cause and invest in tangible ideas rich in potential for user problem-fit. ‘Ideas Coming into Fruition’ With such an excellent support infrastructure in place, the IOTA Foundation is optimistic that IOTA entrepreneurs will now have the all the means at their disposal to further enrich the ecosystem by delivering innovative solutions with real-world impact. Reasserting that Tangle is more efficient and impactful than blockchain, IOTA co-founder David Sønstebø, stated that the evolving technology brings along huge potential for M2M payments. The partnership with NOVA, he added, will see ‘ideas coming to fruition.’ Andrew Dean, Head of Partnerships at Nova, echoed the sentiment by stating: “The fact that 90% of startups fail means that there are loads of brilliant business ideas out there that simply never materialize into anything meaningful, and a lot of talent and ambition is wasted.” “We want to make sure that IOTA entrepreneurs have the best possible chance of success. Some of the most exciting technological developments of our time are fueled by IOTA technology, and we’re looking forward to playing a part in bringing some of those ideas to market.” For the uninitiated, Nova is a platform dedicated to helping out entrepreneurs who have the expertise and experience in a field but lack the resources to launch a business from the ground-up.
