Mercado explode: Bitcoin sobe mais de 4% e Ethereum quase 14%

Por: Livecoins A semana começou com bons números para os investidores de criptomoedas. Com uma alta de praticamente todos os principais ativos digitais, o mercado segue em completa valorização. O Bitcoin (BTC) já subiu mais de 4% nas últimas horas e o Ethereum (ETH) está quase chegando em 14%. O entusiasmo do mercado fez várias criptomoedas saltarem nesta segunda-feira (18). Em uma explosão de valorização nos preços, teve altcoin que subiu quase 50% em uma onda de crescimento repentina. Enquanto muitos esperam que esse movimento se consolide no mercado, alguns investidores já previam que as criptomoedas fossem crescer no início desta semana. Preço do Bitcoin (BTC) dá sinais de recuperação Nos últimos dias as principais criptomoedas mantiveram-se em uma zona de resistência alcançada recentemente. No caso do Bitcoin (BTC), por exemplo, a criptomoeda estava por volta de US$ 3.600,00 nos últimos dias. Com uma pequena oscilação, por quase uma semana esse valor foi mantido pelo ativo digital. Esse comportamento, na maioria das vezes, precede um aumento do valor da criptomoeda. Após alcançar um índice de resistência maior que seu preço nos últimos dias, o Bitcoin (BTC) estava prestes a tentar uma subida mais vertiginosa. E isso parece acontecer na manhã desta segunda-feira (18) no mercado animado com um crescimento de quase US$ 5 bilhões nas últimas horas. Ethereum subiu quase 14% Enquanto Bitcoin (BTC) cresceu mais de 4% nas últimas horas, alcançando o preço de cerca US$ 3.778,00, o Ethereum (ETH) é um dos altcoins que mais se destaca nessa onda de valorização no mercado. O ativo, atualmente o segundo maior do mercado, se valorizou em quase 14%. Isso fez com que o Ethereum (ETH) fosse cotado em quase US$ 145,00. O crescimento das principais criptomoedas reflete uma onda de valorização que poderá se estender por toda a semana. Após viver vários dias com uma certa estabilidade, as criptomoedas experimentam uma nova onda de crescimento. Essa onda pode ter sido impulsionada por vários fatores, como atualizações de ativos de peso no mercado, como o Ethereum (ETH), por exemplo. WAX (WAX) teve melhor desempenho e chegou em quase 50% nas últimas horas Além das duas maiores criptomoedas do mercado, outros ativos digitais estão em uma onda repleta de valorização. Entre os maiores desempenhos está o WAX (WAX). Esse altcoin viu seu preço se valorizar em quase 50% nas últimas horas. Desse modo, o WAX (WAX) registrou o maior crescimento entre as cem maiores criptomoedas. Em segundo, logo atrás do (WAX), está o Komodo (KMD), que subiu cerca de 33%. Com essa valorização, essa altcoin atingiu o valor de US$ 1,07. Já em terceiro lugar entre os melhores desempenhos registrados até o fim da manhã deste dia, está o Veritaseum (VERI), que subiu 29,03% alcançando o valor de US$ 21,97 no mercado. O artigo Mercado explode: Bitcoin sobe mais de 4% e Ethereum quase 14% foi publicado originalmente em Livecoins.

Kadan Stadelmann, the CTO of the privacy-centric cryptocurrency Komodo (KMD), recently discussed the concept of atomic-swaps and revealed that the Komodo team is working on releasing a smartphone app capable to conducting atomic swaps on their ‘BarterDEX’ decentralized exchange. This could potentially revolutionize P2P transactions by eliminating the need the need for any central party.

Top UK Cryptocurrency Exchanges of 2019

Cryptocurrency exchanges are becoming popular thanks to the growth of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple. In this article, we will describe the top UK cryptocurrency exchanges. Coinbase Coinbase became a known name in the world of crypto exchanges, making its way to the top not only as an exchange - but as a way to increase adoption.We believe this because the major partnerships that made Bitcoin ‘famous’ are there because of Coinbase. Overstock, Dell, Expedia and others - all are there because Coinbase’s marketing strategy. Founded in June 2012, Coinbase puts an emphasis on Bitcoin and other essential cryptocurrencies. It features a high level of security, ease of use, and the option to have your own wallet. Because of the Coinbase’s friendliness with Europe, it’s an excellent option for United Kingdom customers. Although Coinbase involves an efficient way of exchanging cryptocurrency, one of its major disadvantage are its fees. Coinbase fees can be high ranging from 1.49% to 4.00%. We all are used to lower fees in the world of cryptocurrency, but in this case the ease of use of the platform may make the higher fees worth the cost. Although, to avoid these fees, advanced users might prefer to go to other sites. Coinbase allows the purchase of Bitcoin by credit card, debit card, bank transfer, SEPA transfer, and more options. In summary, Coinbase is an excellent choice for beginners who want to join the world of cryptocurrency, and its rise in popularity throughout Europe indicates that it could also gain popularity among many UK customers. Pros: -High liquidity and buying limits. -Easy way for beginners to get Bitcoins. -You can use “Instant Buy” with credit card and debit card Cons: -Purchases made with bank transfer can take up to 5 days. -Not available in some important countries yet, despite its popularity Bittylicious Bittylicious is a Bitcoin exchange based in the United Kingdom. Users can purchase Bitcoin via Barclays Pringit, Faster Payments-enabled bank transfer, or credit card, although there’s a different price for each of these options - with bank transfer being the lowest cost option. The platform has an interesting approach when it comes to trading. For example, Bittylicious matches trades without you sending any funds to them. You will deal with a broker who has been verified by Bittylicious. To become a broker, it is necessary to go through a rigorous application process. Also, before buying more than $50 worth of cryptocurrency, an identity verification is needed. Bittylicious offers an unusually simple interface. This has the potential to make trading easier, offering ease of use to those new to cryptocurrency. In summary, Bittylicious can be a secure, fast, cost-efficient way to buy Bitcoins in the UK. Its current rise in popularity looks promising for the long term. Pros: -One of the most efficient ways to buy Bitcoins in the UK -Refund guarantee if payment takes longer than expected. Cons: -ID required for card purchases -RBS/Natwest PYC payment method not available yet. Bitpanda Bitpanda is a crypto broker based in Austria. It has high paying limits, low fees, and a wide range of payment methods like EUR, GBP, CHF, USD, and more. The platform also allows people to buy and sell cryptocurrency using a credit card, debit card, Sofort,Skrill, Neteller, Giropay, Eps, SEPA, and more. The site allows users to take advantage of various options when it comes to buying and selling crypto, such as BTC, LTC, ETH, XRP, DASH, BCH, KMD, and MIOTA. The platform also has a good approach when it comes to security. Users will need to go through an identification process that includes a video identification procedure. In summary, Bitpanda is a flexible option for UK users. It offers a great variety of currencies and cryptocurrencies and is a secure, user-friendly platform. Pros: -Could have low fees compared to other exchanges. -Reliable and secure broker Cons: -Fees are not shown on the site but only on the buying price. LocalBitCoins The Bitcoin exchange platform has become famous thanks to its availability and a great amount of users. Users can advertise trades and get feedback as well. The platform is particularly popular in the UK. It has a flexibility of payment methods, and sellers can choose them with freedom. The most popular methods are national bank transfer, Paypal and in-person meetings. Unfortunately, security is one of the weaker aspects of LocalBitCoins, and many users are complaining about it. There are fewer verification processes than normal and the user can get scammed if not careful. However, that’s where the feedback system comes into play. Pros: -Private, fast, and easy -In-person trades do not need personal information -Quick purchases of Bitcoin if a cash deposit is used Cons: -Harder to buy large amounts of Bitcoins when compared to other exchanges -Scams are not rare, always look at the reviews of a seller or buyer! -Could have significantly higher prices than regular excha

Crypto Market Wrap: Could Binance Coin Flip Stellar (XLM) Soon?

Market Wrap Crypto markets continue consolidating; Litecoin back in fourth, BNB, XLM and NEM moving, Maker falls back. Movements have been minimal on crypto markets as we round out another week. The good news is that gains made this time last week have held for now but signs of further upward motion have not materialized. Total market capitalization has remained over $120 billion as the consolidation continues. Bitcoin is range bound in a very tight channel at the moment between $3,600 and $3,650. It has not changed in price since the same time yesterday but has consolidated above support levels so could move higher in the short term. Ethereum is still flat at $123 with zero movement over the past few days. Momentum is expected as Constantinople draws closer next week. XRP is holding $0.30 and also range bound, the gap between the two remains at $300 million. There is not much to report in the top ten during the day’s Asian trading session. Litecoin has re-flipped EOS and taken fourth place back with a 2.5% gain to $43, though the gap between them is negligible. Binance Coin is yet again the top mover here with 4% added and a rare blip by Stellar has sent XLM up 2.5% on the day - the gap between the two is now only $200 million. NEM has made the biggest move in the top twenty with 5% as the organization restructures and moves forward with the project. Very little else is going on and a few such as Monero, Maker, and Zcash are falling back 3% or so. Crypto.com’s MCO token its getting today’s fomo spike with a 26% jump as Singaporean crypto credit cards gather steam. Tezos is also having a good Friday with 8% added on the day. At the red end of the top one hundred is MOAC dumping 10% and yesterday’s pumped Komodo dropping 7%. Total market capitalization dipped back to $119 billion but has recovered to the same level as yesterday, $120 billion. The sideways motion continues and there is very little going on with markets at the moment. Gains made in last Friday’s big pump have held for the week leaving markets at the same place they were this time last month. Market Wrap is a section that takes a daily look at the top 20 cryptocurrencies during the current trading session and analyses the best-performing ones, looking for trends and possible fundamentals The post Crypto Market Wrap: Could Binance Coin Flip Stellar (XLM) Soon? appeared first on NewsBTC.

Prominent Cryptocurrency Exchange Bittrex Lists KMD with USD

Earlier today, Komodo, a blockchain-based decentralized ecosystem, announced that Bittrex had decided to list its native token KMD on its platform. The exchange would trade the token against the US Dollar, and the KMD/USD trading pair would not be available in all geographical locations. Consequently, some users will have to take additional steps to trade using the KMD/USD pair. The Komodo team further stated that it aims to expedite the global adoption of the blockchain technology and that it understands creating fiat gateways is an efficient method to achieve this goal.

Daily Berminal Brief: Zcash Discloses Major Vulnerability, And Kraken Receives $4 Billion Valuation

The State of The Market - February 6, 2019 BTC: $3,404.36 (-1.81%) XRP: $0.290928 (-2.58%) ETH: $102.98 (-4.30) After nearly a week of stability, the crypto market experienced a slight crash today, with the total market cap losing over $2.6 Billion in the last 24 hours. Except for Binance Coin (BNB) all of the top 50 cryptocurrencies are flashing red. BNB, on the other hand, is up by 12% and surpassed Bitcoin SV (BSV) and Cardano (ASA) to become the 10th largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $1.13 Billion. The demand for Binance's native token is up due to the upcoming sale of Fetch.AI token on Binance Launchpad. Bitcoin is testing its support at $3,400 right now, and only time will tell if it would be able to hold on to it. If it fails to do so, Bitcoin could further slide to $3,200, or even $3,000. In other news, Coinbase has enabled PayPal withdrawals for customers in Europe. This feature was enabled for US customers back in December 2018. Previously, European customers only had the options of SEPA and UK Payments. Now, users can use PayPal for instant withdrawals. Also, a relatively obscure Malaysia-based crypto exchange called BitPoint helped Mt.Gox trustee Nobuaki Kobayashi liquidate 25,000 Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash on the open market in 2018. This was done against the advice of Kraken CEO Jesse Powell and GoxDox.com says it is publicizing the event in order to "[call] BS on behalf of Mt.Gox creditors." GoxDox.com appears to have obtained Kobayashi's bank statements and they are purported to show that a total of $312 million was deposited to Kobayashi's account between Feb 23 and June 4. 1) Zcash has patched and disclosed a vulnerability that could have allowed attackers to coin infinite Zcash (ZEC) according to a post on the official Zcash blog. Zerocoin Electric Coin Company engineer Ariel Gabizon discovered the vulnerability and contacted Zcash cryptographer Sean Bowe immediately. A patch to address the vulnerability was integrated into the Sapling network upgrade on October 28, 2018, and Horizen and Komodo blockchains both suffered from the same vulnerability. Zcash wrote that it informed both teams via encrypted in mid-November and in today's blog post Zcash said that "both Horizen and Komodo have taken appropriate actions per our recommendation." 2) Kraken cryptocurrency exchange has secured a $4 billion valuation and is set to launch a funding round after acquiring London-based Crypto Facilities for $100 million. The company is now a top three exchange in terms of valuation and the Kraken team also revealed that it currently serves more than 4 million active users. The Kraken team announced that new investment vehicles and products will roll out over the coming months and the infrastructure implementation of Crypto Facilities means that the exchange now boasts more than 100 developers and is flush with capital. CEO Jesse Powell said, "We've got great stuff in store for traders and institutional clients in 2019" and the exchange also launched a podcast which it claims will "show the juicy inner workings of a crypto company." 3) A death certificate issued by the Indian government shows that Gerald Cotten, the CEO of Canadian crypto exchange QuadrigaCX, died in early December. Cotten's passing has been a topic of frequent discussion as the exchange currently owes $190 million to thousands of investors and QuadrigaCX is currently seeking creditor protection in a Canadian court. Many investors had openly aired their skepticism regarding Cotten's death as it took the exchange more than a month to disclose it and this was followed by a frustrating period of withdrawal delays and broken communication. The death certificate, issued by the Government of Rajasthan Directorate of Economics and Statistics, indicated that Cotten died on December 9. The release of the document should squash rumors that Cotten faked his death or that exchange insiders conducted an exit scam. (VS)

CoinBene and Komodo Partner for Security Initiative to Fend Off 51 Percent Attacks

Komodo, a blockchain ecosystem for infrastructure solutions, and crypto exchange CoinBene have partnered for a security initiative. CoinBene launched its 2019 security initiative in an attempt to thwart 51% attacks and will now gain access to Komodo’s Blockchain Security Service as well as its delayed proof-of-work (dPoW) technology. Komodo’s Chief Marketing Officer Steve Lee noted that in 2018 and 2019, many blockchains remain susceptible to attack, which places developers, exchanges, investors, and others at risk too, adding: “This partnership is an ideal use case for our Blockchain Security Service, which aims to make the blockchain industry more secure and promote mass adoption by building trust in the technology.” CoinBene Founder Daniel Zhang said that Komodo's is "by far the best third-party security solution being offered right now."

Pirate Coin | The Monero Killer ?

Pirate Coin (a.k.a. Pirate Chain), The fact that Bitcoin was becoming popular among those who advocated a decentralized revolution was not enough to achieve its goals inspiring developers to innovate in the dark. In terms of transaction data protection, this innovation focused on currencies such as Dash (DASH), Monero (XMR), Zcash (ZEC) and the newest private coin Pirate (ARRR). You’ve heard of DASH, XMR, and ZEC, but what the fuck is ARRR Coin (Pirate Chain)? After all, this anonymous transaction blockchain tech is only two months old. But don’t mistake its youth for its lack of formidable privacy features. Pirate Coin ARRR possibly has the most private transaction technology of all privacy coins. Many of us believe that if the government can taint bitcoin it will. Pirate coin is a true pirates protection currency that takes financial privacy very seriously. Pirate chain is a 100% anonymous with no compromises. Pirate chain uses a blockchain privacy protocol that cannot be affected by the activities of other users in the network. Many similar currencies are interspersed with holes created by optional privacy. Pirate uses zk-snarks (Soon a Sapling only chain) to protect 100% of the p2p transactions in the blockchain, making it very anonymous and private. Pirate was designed as a property protection currency with Zcash parameters, with a unique base that all transactions are Z -Transactions. In addition, Pirate was created with its own unique asset chain of zk-snarks (Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge) for data protection and dPoW (delayed proof of work) for security. The main feature of Pirate crypto is that 100% of the send transactions (outbound) in the chain are Private transactions. The $ARRR cryptocurrency has no option to send a transparent (public viewable) transaction. Ultimately, Pirate will have a complete group of protected funds. In the simple case, without knowledge, there is no information that someone can analyze or find. Put this all in your blender and the makes #ARRR Coin 100% untraceable. Pirate could be considered the most anonymous, private and secure cryptocurrency blockchain created to date. The developers who created zcash, on which the pirate coin is based, believe that the best use of the protocol is a chain that only requires private sends only. Pirate coin is an anonymous currency that uses the zcash algo parameters (zk-snarks) to require private sends only in the blockchain as said earlier. There are no public send transactions on the chain. This makes Pirate coin, without a doubt, one of the most private cryptocurrencies (IMO — If not... speak up!!) — Join Pirate Discord https://pirate.black/discord/ In addition, Pirate ARRR is backed by the Komodo dPoW, which makes it one of the most unhackable cryptocurrencies, with 51% attack resistance and double-spend protection. Don’t believe me ? Do your Due Diligence and get involved. Pirate Coin’s Radio ARRR will bring the latest information for you to keep up with in the coming months.

The Lightning Network's First ERC-20 to Bitcoin Atomic Swap Has Taken Place

At the December 7, 2018, TenX Summit, a group of developers showcased an industry first: an atomic swap on the Lightning Network between a non-native asset, TenX’s PAY token, and a native asset, bitcoin.By non-native, the team is referring to an asset/coin that is not the base currency for the network. For Ethereum, for example, the native asset is ether, while any token that is built on the protocol is considered a non-native asset. CoBloX, a TenX research and development lab, is responsible for the achievement. Demonstrating their work to a tightly packed audience of summit goers, the team used the Lightning Network and their open-source software COMIT to swap 10 PAY for 71,240 satoshis. The team published a blog post on December 12, 2018, to confirm the news and satify what it calls “the gossip factory” of he-said-she-said following the summit. In the post, the team delves into their process, explaining outright that this swap was not as simple as the first-ever ether and bitcoin atomic swap on the Lightning Network, which they tested nearly six months ago. Whereas this swap’s hashed time lock contract (HTLC) only required a single use smart contract, the PAY to bitcoin swap took an extra step. Reason being, the PAY token itself is managed with an additional smart contract known as the transfer ownership function. Because of this, the HTLC had to be separated into two transactions: one to deploy the swap contract and another as a transfer call for the PAY tokens.“Unfortunately, we couldn’t figure out how to combine these two steps. The ERC20 transfer function uses msg.sender for authentication. However, calling transfer from a contract deployment sets msg.sender to the address of the yet-to-be-deployed contract which obviously has no tokens,” the blog post reads.Having used the Lightning Network Daemon (LND) implementation for the swap, the team continues to explain in the blog post that the swap is a one-way ticket. They could only execute the trade by starting with the ERC-20 token and going through Lightning — not the other way around.“An atomic swap cannot always be expressed through this model of invoices and payments. In LND, which is what we used for our PoC, receiving a payment requires an invoice which requires knowledge of the secret. As a result, we were only able to do ERC20 to Lightning and not the other way around.”The technical milestone is the latest in CoBloX’s technical successes. As mentioned previously, the team also completed the world’s first ether and bitcoin swap. The young lab’s GitHub also features a couple of Rust clients for a Bitcoin Core interface and a JsonRPC API plug-in, as well as a tool for testing blockchain applications.COMIT, the software used in the ERC-20 swap, is also open-source. With a focus on blockchain interoperability, COMIT is meant to act as a bridge between networks to facilitate cross-chain asset swaps. In addition to the work that has been done with Ethereum and its ERC-20 tokens, the team plans to expand its use with additional features and currencies down the road. An earlier version of this article misrepresented the swap as the first of its kind, failing to specify that it was the first on the Lightning Network. The Komodo platform performed the industry's first successful ether to bitcoin and ERC-20 to bitcoin atomic swaps earlier in 2018. This article originally appeared on Bitcoin Magazine.

Komodo (KMD) Gains 17% Before Hard Fork

As most of the crypto market is in red today, Komodo (KMD), which has a market cap of $83 million is up by 17%. The multi-function blockchain project is scheduled to undergo a hard fork on December 15, 2018. Its biggest change is the addition of the Sapling technology that was recently implemented on Zcash. It will also allow for equal CPU/GPU hashing algorithms, and interchain smart contracts. Komodo (KMD) is priced at $0.748457, gaining 5.87% in the last 24 hours. (VS)

Pirate (ARRR) | Based on Zcash & Secured Using Bitcoin (BTC) Blockchain Network

Pirate (ARRR) is a new privacy-oriented coin that focuses on helping users maintain their financial privacy. ARRR, the platform’s native coin, is a “100% private send cryptocurrency.” Notably, the Pirate platform uses a privacy protocol that “cannot be compromised by other users’ activity on [its] network.” While most privacy coins offer “optional privacy” or privacy by default, the developers of Pirate claim that this may potentially create vulnerabilities on their network. Pirate uses ZK-snarks technology to “shield 100%” of the peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions on its blockchain, thus ensuring “highly anonymous” and private transactions. “Most Secure”, “Most Private” Coin The developers of the new privacy coin state that their privacy coin is arguably the “most private” and the “most secure” digital currency that has so far been created. Pirate’s decentralized crypto network is based on the Zcash platform, which is a product of the efforts of those involved in the Zerocoin project. As most crypto enthusiasts would know, the Zerocoin project was initially launched in order to enhance the privacy of bitcoin (BTC) transactions. Since then, however, there have been a number of a different privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies that have entered the crypto market. According to Zcash’s developers, the “best use of the protocol is a chain that requires private sends only.” Moreover, Komodo’s delayed Proof of Work (dPoW) helps to protect Pirate’s blockchain from being susceptible to double spends (when a user attempts to spend the same funds twice) and 51% attacks. This is achieved by “attaching a backup of the ARRR chain to the Bitcoin Blockchain.” As explained on the platform’s official website: “In order to 51% attack Pirate, you would have to first 51% attack Bitcoin. This makes security against double spends and hostile takeovers nearly impossible if not impossibe altogether.” Below are some key features of this new privacy coin: - “Independent assetchain launched on Komodo secured by dPoW”, - “Private send transactions only. No Public sends make it the largest shielded funds pool of any project using ZK-snarks”, - “TOR network supported”, - “Fundamentals complete. Main net launch was August 30, 2018,” - “Sapling upgrade planned for Q1 2019 to provide lite wallets, mobile wallets and Point of Sale functionality” In another post here on CryptoCoreMedia, we will cover the planned Sapling upgrade for Pirate. Demand For Privacy Coins Will Likely Increase The need for privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies may only increase in the foreseeable future. As CryptoCoreMedia reported, the US Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action against two Iranian citizens for allegedly facilitating illicit bitcoin (BTC) transactions. The OFAC has identified two crypto addresses that are linked to them, as they were used for thousands of BTC transactions, worth “millions of US dollars.” While it’s always best to stay on the right side of the law, it should be obvious that there is a legitimate use case for privacy coins. However, let’s use our personal assets responsibly. The post Pirate (ARRR) | Based on Zcash & Secured Using Bitcoin (BTC) Blockchain Network appeared first on Crypto Core Media.

What Is Dash? Introduction to DASH Cryptocurrency And DashPay

What Is Dash? Dash is an open-source cryptocurrency and decentralized autonomous organization that forked from Litecoin. It aims to overcome Bitcoin’s shortfalls in governance, consensus, and speed. As a payment system, Dash is expanding its presence in Latin America, hoping to resolve payment and remittance issues from Mexico to Brazil. Dash touts itself as self-governing, self-funding, and the fastest growing platform. It’s not necessarily wrong on any of these counts. Although not fully unique, Dash is a solid project that forged a lot of solid partnerships. Introduction To Dash Nodes must own 1000 DASH, have a static IP, and meet minimum system requirements of CPU, RAM, available disk space, and network bandwidth to become masternodes, which govern the network. It underwent several rebrandings before landing on DashPay, which launched in January 2014 in Phoenix, AZ by Evan Duffield. Actually, we should say Xcoin was created in January 2014 by Duffield, before several rebrandings of this altcoin occurred (including Darkcoin) to make it the DashPay we know today. Dash is (and is also a portmanteau of) digital cash, and it’s a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), meaning it’s governed and maintained by its users with no central authority. Dash’s DAO funded over $33 million worth of Dash to projects ranging from Arizona State University’s (where I went to college, by the way) Blockchain Research Laboratory, cannabis payment platform Alt Thirty Six, and the country of Venezuela. It’s not just name-dropping investors and partners either - already, the Dash DAO approved a 30 Dash payment to sequence a cannabis genome and publish it on the blockchain to bypass the traditional scientific publishing market. Dash DAO is also gearing up to launch a venture fund in the next year. And on a performance level, it’s already confirmed 591,166 transactions in a 24-hour period, over 100,000 more than Bitcoin’s December 2017 high. Dash has aggressive expansion plans that include gaming, Mexico, and credit cards. If it can achieve even half of what it’s setting out to do, it’ll remain a dominant cryptocurrency into the foreseeable future. Before explaining why, let’s review DashPay’s DASH coin performance on the crypto market. Breakdown of DASH Token There’s currently a circulating supply of 8,440,664 DASH (out of a total supply of 18,900,000) as of November 12, 2018. The peak price of DASH was $1,541.99, which occurred on December 20,2017. Dash is mined using an X11 algorithm, which is a modified Proof-of-Stake system that uses Conjoin mixing to encrypt, anonymize, and privatize transactions. This makes it a competitor for privacy coins like Komodo, ZCash, Monero, and Verge. In PoS mining, DASH is rewarded to those holding it, and both mining and masternode pools are available. In addition, DASH is paid as a fee to Masternodes to process smart-contract transactions on the Dash blockchain. Block rewards are split between Masternodes (45 percent), Miners (45 percent), and Treasury (10 percent). The Treasury uses these funds for future development projects and to help fund the DAO’s investments as necessary. The full 18 million cap won’t be reached until the year 2300. DASH is tradeable on most major markets, including ZB.com, YoBit, HitBTC, Huobi, Binanc, Exrates, and many more. Its trading pairs include BTC, USDT, ETH, BCH, and other crypto and fiat currencies on some exchanges. Over $200 million in DASH is traded every day. Dash is open-source, with its own blockchain and support for desktop, mobile, hardware, and paper wallets. In addition, like Bitcoin and Litecoin, DASH is actually a spendable currency (a rarity in crypto), with more retailers accepting it as payment every day. Unclogging Bitcoin’s Blockchain The key to Dash’s success lies in Masternodes. Bitcoin was left open-ended, which led to ASIC mining company Bitmain owning 40 percent of the network’s mining stake. The 4,719 Masternodes processing Dash’s full blockchain retain verification and validation power. This greatly reduces the number of nodes needed to process network transactions. It also maintains a power circle of trust among Masternodes, which must maintain at least 1000 DASH to participate. Transaction fees are much lower than Bitcoin or Ethereum’s, and, unlike privacy coins like Komodo, founder Duffield, CEO Ryan Taylor, CTO Andy Freer, and other members of the team don’t mind revealing themselves to the public. As pointed out by Leigh Cuena at Coindesk, even if Dash fails, its focus on emerging economies in Africa, South America, and around the world will leave a lasting impact. Venezuela became the second biggest market for Dash among volatile pricing of its own currency. The country saw a 1,000,000 percent rise in inflation in 2018, leaving many short of being able to even afford groceries. Merchant acceptance in the country is on the rise too. Activists, academics, entrepreneurs - these are the people Dash is helping, and it’s a mod

Stellar Lumens [XLM] fails to perform in the market post Blockchain announcement

Stellar Lumens [XLM], the sixth biggest cryptocurrency in the market, enjoyed the bull run which took place earlier this week. The coin made an uproar in the cryptoverse with Blockchain’s announcement on their official portal which stated that they would airdrop $125 million XLM. This announcement set the market ablaze as it turns out to be the biggest giveaway to be taking place in the cryptocurrency space. The giveaway is a celebration for adding XLM on Blockchain wallet, which was initially a Bitcoin concentric wallet. Blockchain has promised to giveaway over $25 worth of XLM to all the users with verified accounts. The platform stated that the Stellar network is “built for scalability”. The coin allows for quick, low-cost and worldwide transactions, which is one of the main reason for listing the coin on their wallet. The wallet supports a total of four cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin [BTC], Bitcoin Cash [BCH], Ethereum [ETH] and the recently added, Stellar Lumens [XLM]. Peter Smith, the CEO and co-founder of Blockchain said on Twitter: “Excited to add #XLM to the @blockchain wallet today and announce a $125M airdrop - the biggest digital giveaway ever. We’ll be giving millions of people their first $20 of crypto over the next few months” He further said: “We’re excited to help the @StellarOrg build an ecosystem, alongside their other partners inclu @stripe and @IBM, by bringing millions of users onto the Stellar network.” The announcement resulted in the coin gaining a momentum in the market, however, it failed to have a massive impact on its price. According to CoinMarketCap, XLM was trading at $0.25 with a market cap of more than $4 billion. The trade volume of the coin was over $74 million and had seen a downfall of around 3% in the past 24 hours. Stellar Lumens [XLM] Price Chart | Source: CoinMarketCapAdditionally, according to reports by CoinGekco, Stellar Lumens turned out to the second biggest platform for ICOs with over 6% market share, after Ethereum. Stellar was followed by NEO, NEM, Achain, Waves, EOS, Zilliqa, Komodo, and Hyperledger. Drive Markets stated on Twitter: “Over 85% of ICOs are issued on Ethereum according to @coingecko and Stellar is in second place with 6% market share” Stellar Lumens ICO market share | Source: CoinGecko DU09, a Redditor said: “Not surprised, XLM is second after ETH, unlikely this will change as ETH loses market share. The other competitors are not like XLM, rather an improved version of ETH or BTC, so they won’t scale as easy. Only challenge for XLM is to expand it’s ecosystem and adoption from large investors that so far go for ETH as that already dominates the market and existing infrastructure.” The post Stellar Lumens [XLM] fails to perform in the market post Blockchain announcement appeared first on AMBCrypto.
