Want to Know What Tokens Vitalik Buterin and other Ethereum Devs Hodl? They Shared Their Blockfolios on a Reddit AMA

Two days ago, Hudson Jameson, a Developer and Co-Founder of Oaken Innovations, proposed a Reddit AMA to clarify certain points regarding leadership and accountability in the Ethereum community. This was due to a controversy that arose as a result of Afri’s announcement to abandon the Ethereum project. Until further notice, you can reach me via might-not-reply@5chdn.co, on Telegram using changing handles, and on Parity's Riot/Github. I will no longer respond on Gitter, Skype, Discord, Slack, Wire, Twitter, and Reddit. — Afri (@5chdn) February 17, 2019 I did not quit social media, I quit Ethereum. I did not go dark, I just left the community. I am no longer coordinating hard-forks, building testnets, or contributing otherwise. I did not work on Polkadot, I never did, I worked on Ethereum. I did not hate Ethereum, I loved it. — Afri (@5chdn) February 19, 2019 Afri’s resignation came after he wrote a series of Tweets saying that Polkadot could surpass Ethereum 2.0. He compared both projects while pointing out specific weaknesses of the Ethereum network. Of course, Afri’s opinions annoyed the part of some members of the community, who demanded that he withdraw from the project. Jameson speculates that Afri ended up giving in to the pressures and decided to take one step back. I'm so angry and disappointed in the Ethereum community. You ran out one of our best contributors for the dumbest reasons. More people should have spoken up in support and there needs to be less vitriol. https://t.co/eClG1q1f9N — Hudson Jameson (@hudsonjameson) February 17, 2019 Given the turbulence experienced in the community, the idea of creating a Reddit AMA was seen as positive by the Ethereum team, who took the opportunity to clarify doubts and get closer to the community. One of the most popular comments was that of ezpzfan324. This user remarked that to avoid repeating situations like the one experienced with Afri, it would be advisable for the critical members of Ethereum to make a Conflict of Interests Statement. Vitalik Buterin: 80% ETH Vitalik Buterin welcomed this proposal and responded quickly, revealing to the community the tokens he has invested in and the proportion of his investments: “Here’s a quick one from me: Non-ethereum-ecosystem tokens: BCH, BTC, DOGE, ZEC; total value < 10% the value of my ETH Non-ETH ethereum ecosystem tokens: KNC, MKR, OMG, REP, total value <10% the value of my ETH Significant corporate shareholdings: Clearmatics, Starkware [edit, forgot to put this in before] Revenue in the last 12 months other than ethereum foundation salary: a few advisor tokens (included in above) Non-financial interests: friends in the ecosystems represented by the above projects, as well as some non-token ethereum ecosystem orgs (eg. L4, Plasma Group, EthGlobal, EDCON) and non-token non-ethereum orgs (mainly professional cryptography and economics circles) I’d definitely support more people actively involved in protocol decision-making making such statements!” Justin Drake: 99% ETH Justin Drake, another member of the Ethereum developer team also shared his investments, following in the footsteps of Vitalik Buterin: “Quick summary here: 99% of token value in ETH (was given minor airdrops for free) Paid by the EF in ETH Leverage long ETH using ETH as collateral (MakerDAO) Close to zero fiat Not associated with any blockchain project other than Ethereum Zero speaking fees, zero grants” Martin Swende: +95% ETH Martin Swende, another important member of the Ethereum Dev Tem also shared his crypto holdings and the origin of his investments: “I’ll join in 95-99% of crypto holdings in ETH, rest is ZEC, BTC, SIA + some eth-tokens Salary/income last 12 months: all via EF (in euro) I previously also sometimes did consultancy audits, haven’t done any in a long time Advisor in zero projects, zero speaking fees, zero grants received, etc.” They did not disclosed how much money the have invested, but just by knowing which tokens they own seems as a good reference to measure the potentional of some projects.

Vitalik Buterin revela quais criptomoedas ele investe

Por: Livecoins Em um recente Reddit AMA (perguntas e respostas), Vitalik Buterin, co-criador da Ethereum, divulgou as criptomoedas que tem além da própria ETHEREUM. O co-fundador da Ethereum listou os Tokens em que ele investiu, bem como outras fontes de renda e interesses não financeiros que ele achava que precisavam ser compartilhados com a comunidade. O que pode ser uma surpresa para muitos na comunidade é que ele tem duas shitcoins (moeda sem futuro, propósito ou valor), a Bitcoin Cash (BCH) e a Dogecoin (Doge). Ele disse que tem Bitcoin (BTC) e Zcash (ZEC). Juntos, essas moedas somam menos de 10% do valor total de suas propriedades. Ele também tem investimentos em alguns tokens baseados em Ethereum: Rede Kyber (KNC), Maker (MKR), OmiseGo (OMG) e Augur (REP). O artigo Vitalik Buterin revela quais criptomoedas ele investe foi publicado originalmente em Livecoins.

Binance congela algunos de los fondos robados en el hackeo a Cryptopia

Parte de las criptomonedas robada por el hackeo a Cryptopia el martes se enviaron a Binance, los que confirmaron que ya se están congelando parte de estoss fondos.*** (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});La cuenta de Twitter @ShaftedTangu alegó que algunos de los fondos robados como resultado del hackeo a Cryptopia fueron desviados a Binance.Las cantidades enviadas a Binance en cuestión incluyen aproximadamente 7.500 dólares estadounidenses en Metal (MTL), USD $6.750 en moneda KyberNetwork (KNC), USD $7.181 en OmiseGO (OMG) y USD $8.724 en EnjinCoin (ENJ). Todo esto suma alrededor de 30.000 dólares estadounidenses. Vale señalar que todas ellas son criptomonedas poco conocidas.Changpeng Zhao, CEO de Binance, confirmó las acusaciones, asegurando que ya han congelado algunos de los fondos. Twiteó: “Recién comprobado, pudimos congelar algunos de los fondos. No entiendo por qué los hackers siguen enviando a Binance. Las redes sociales serán muy rápidas para reportarlo y las congelaremos. Es una maniobra de alto riesgo para ellos”.Hace dos días, la seguridad de Cryptopia fue violada, dando como resultado “pérdidas significativas”. Esto lo confirmó la policía en Nueva Zelanda.Binance bajo la miraEl tweet de Zhao provocó una reacción en la comunidad de Crypto Twitter. Es el caso del usuario @Crypto_Bitlord, que expresó su desconcierto por el hecho de que Zhao se refiriera a las “redes sociales” como un medio de informar en lugar de a los propios sistemas de vigilancia de Binance.El usuario expresó a través de Twitter: “Estoy genuinamente sorprendido de que los fondos robados de @Cryptopia_NZ hayan pasado fácilmente SIN SER DETECTADOS a través de @binance hasta que las redes sociales los denunciaron. Esto plantea algunas grandes preguntas. ¿Cómo es eso posible con Blockchain?”.Sobre esta acusación el CEO de Binance, expresó: “Es bastante fácil generar una nueva dirección. Nosotros reconocemos cada transacción que hay. Ya tenemos un análisis de Blockchain muy profundo y detallado”. La interrogante continúaSin embargo, la pregunta sigue siendo: si un usuario habitual de Twitter ha podido detectar la transacción en cuestión, cómo y, lo que es más importante, por qué Binance no pudo.Quizás la mejor pregunta, tal como lo plantea @Crypto_Bitlord es:Entonces, ¿está diciendo que los delincuentes pueden robar fondos y simplemente crear una nueva dirección para enviar antes de Binance? Mientras tanto, Binance anunció ayer el lanzamiento de su intercambio fiat-cripto en la isla británica de Jersey. La plataforma está dirigida a operadores de Europa y ofrece pares comerciales BTC / GBP, ETH / GBP, BTC / EUR y ETH / EUR.

Binance Freezes ‘Some of the Funds’ Stolen in Cryptopia Hack

Some of the stolen cryptocurrency from yesterday’s Cryptopia hack has been sent to Binance, which has confirmed already freezing some of the funds. Binance Freezing Funds Stolen from Cryptopia Twitter account @ShaftedTangu has alleged that some funds stolen as a result of Cryptopia’s hack have been siphoned through Binance. The amounts sent to Binance in question include roughly $7,500 in Metal (MTL) 00, $6,750 in KyberNetwork coin (KNC) 00, $7,181 OmiseGO tokens (OMG) 00, and $8,724 in EnjinCoin (ENJ) 00. All of it totals around $30,000. Changpeng Zhao, CEO at Binance - the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by means of traded volumes, has confirmed the allegations, reassuring that they’ve already frozen some of the funds. Zhao commented: Just checked, we were able to freeze some of the funds. I don’t understand why the hackers keep sending to Binance. Social media will be pretty fast to report it, and we will freeze it. It’s a high-risk maneuver for them. Just checked, we were able to freeze some of the funds. I don't understand why the hackers keep sending to Binance. Social media will be pretty fast to report it, and we will freeze it. It's a high risk maneuver for them. https://t.co/i0PeahLzic — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) January 16, 2019 Bitcoinist reported yesterday that Cryptopia’s security has been breached, resulting in ‘significant losses’. Police in New Zealand also confirmed. Binance Caught in the Fire Zhao’s tweet caused a reaction in crypto Twitter’s community as one user (@Crypto_Bitlord) expressed his bewilderment that Zhao referred to “social media” as a means of reporting rather than Binance’s own surveillance systems. I’m genuinely shocked stolen funds from @Cryptopia_NZ have easily passed through @binance UNDETECTED until social media flagged them. This raises some big questions. How is that possible with modern blockchain analysis? — Sir Bitlord (@Crypto_Bitlord) January 16, 2019 On the matter, Binance’s CEO said: It’s quite easy to generate a brand new address. We (and no one) recognize every transaction out there. We already have very in-depth and detailed blockchain analysis. Yet, the question remains - if a regular Twitter user has been able to detect the transaction in question, how, and more importantly - why did Binance miss it? Perhaps the better question, as posed by @Crypto_Bitlord is: So you are saying criminals can steal funds and just create a brand new address to send to before binance? In the meantime, Binance announced today the launch of their Binance Jersey fiat exchange. The platform is aimed at traders from Europe and it offers BTC/GBP, ETH/GBP, BTC/EUR, and ETH/EUR trading pairs. What do you think of Binance missing the transactions in question?

Cryptopia Hack Stolen Funds Moved to Binance and Other Crypto Exchanges - Changpeng Zhao Confirms

A large amount of Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens have been transferred, over the last hours, from Cryptopia to wallets linked with several cryptocurrency exchanges, including Binance. This activity could have been associated with the Cryptopia hack that took place earlier this week, leading the exchange to suspend its operations. Hackers Attempted to Hide Trails Before Sending Stolen Funds to Binance According to Twitter user @ShaftedTangu, the hacker moved vast amounts of ETH and other tokens such as DNC, MTL, MGO, KNC, OMG, ENJ, CENNZ, TrueUSD and others, from Cryptopia-related wallets and then consolidated them into one account. Consequently, he redistributed the funds across multiple crypto exchanges. However, this action which could be seen as an attempt to launder the stolen funds was big enough to trigger the watchdogs that monitor every suspicious, large blockchain transaction. 19,391 #ETH (2,438,152 USD) transferred from #Cryptopia to Unknown wallet Tx: https://t.co/xTxMKRJSD8 — Whale Alert (@whale_alert) January 13, 2019 Social Media Seem to Play a Key Role in Blockchain Security @ShaftedTangu reached out to the representative of the involved cryptocurrency exchanges via Twitter, to warn them about the funds being moved to accounts of their companies. Namely, the exchanges that seem to have received funds from the Cryptopia hack include Binance, Huobi, CoinExchange.io, Digifinex and, KuCoin. Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, went to confirm allegations, saying that the exchange was able to trace and freeze some of the stolen funds. Hey @cz_binance Binance has stolen tokens from Topia hitting it sir. Can you lock it down? https://t.co/0XllsBejUV — I Dream Of Alts (@ShaftedTangu) January 16, 2019 Just checked, we were able to freeze some of the funds.

It's a high risk maneuver for them. https://t.co/i0PeahLzic — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) January 16, 2019 Opaque Crypto Transactions After Cryptopia Shut Down Operations The crypto community is treating the Cryptopia hack with skepticism, as the stolen fund transfer occurred several hours after the exchange announced its temporary shutdown. This has led many to believe that the incident could have been an inside job, but Cryptopia has not responded yet to any of those allegations. The latest update from the exchange’s Twitter account says that the matter is now on the hands of the appropriate authorities. We cannot comment as this matter is now in the hands of the appropriate authorities. We will update you as soon as we can.https://t.co/9uMiKQwb6u — Cryptopia Exchange (@Cryptopia_NZ) January 15, 2019 Cryptopia Hack Stolen Funds Moved to Binance and Other Crypto Exchanges - Changpeng Zhao Confirms was originally found on Cryptocurrency News | Blockchain News | Bitcoin News | blokt.com.

Circle Recaps 2018 and $24B OTC Trading Volume is Not the Company’s Only Achievement

CoinSpeaker Circle Recaps 2018 and $24B OTC Trading Volume is Not the Company’s Only Achievement It’s not a secret that 2018 was a rather controversial and challenging year for the cryptocurrency world. Nevertheless, some companies can be really proud of their year results. And cryptocurrency finance firm Circle is definitely one of them. In its official blog post, the company has shared its 2018 accomplishments. General Growth in 2018 According to the statement, Circle has managed to show excellent growth rates. At the current moment, it works with 8 million customers living in more than 195 countries. In 2018, the company conducted over 200 million transactions worth roughly $75 billion. Moreover, Circle started 2018 with two products and expanded to five by the end of December. Circle released its crypto investment app ‘Circle Invest’, acquired a digital token exchange Poloniex, issued its first stablecoin USDC, purchased a crowdfunding platform called SeedInvest - and it’s still not the full list of the company’s achievements for 2018. OTC Trading According to Circle, its OTC trading business, Circle Trade, is also expanding despite the difficulties that the entire industry faced in 2018. Circle Trade managed to welcome a record number of institutional customers, expand its services across the US, Asia, and Europe as well as to introduce significant technical improvements. As it has been revealed, in the previous year, Circle Trade executed over 10,000 OTC trades with 600 different counterparties. In total, the transactions across 36 digital assets generated a notional volume of $24 billion. OTC trading provides investors with an opportunity to conduct trades directly with one another without a necessity to rely on intermediaries such as crypto exchanges. In general, OTC trading services in digital assets represent a special interest for institutional investors who are turning to Circle Trade’s services more and more often. Acquisition of Poloniex Poloniex acquisition which happened in early 2018 is one of the most important events for Circle. Circle took a decision to acquire one of the earliest crypto exchanges with a view to expand its activities and offer additional support for cryptocurrencies as well as to provide its customers with enhanced services. In 2018, Poloniex experienced numerous upgrades including technical and regulatory changes. Moreover, a range of new digital assets was added to the platform. This list included EOS, BAT, SNT, KNC, LOOM, FOAM, MANA, BNT, and USDC. At the same time, 20 coins were excluded from Poloniex. Acquisition of SeedInvest Another strategic acquisition made by Circle in 2018 is purchasing SeedInvest. One of the reasons why Circle took a decision to acquire this crowdfunding platform is its desire to win a federal banking license. The end goal of this initiative is to register with the SEC and to give traders a possibility to buy and sell tokens as securities for the first time which could become an important accomplishment for the entire crypto community. 2018 was a very productive year for Circle but the company believes that 2019 will bring even more results.

Vitalik Is Hodling SPANK and Jesus Coin

A cryptocurrency designed for the adult entertainment industry, as well as one purportedly offering global access to Jesus Christ, are among some of the projects held in Ethereum (ETH) creator Vitalik Buterin’s wallet. More than 100 different cryptocurrencies are currently in one of the wallets owned by the 24-year-old Buterin. As well as more than 7,000 ETH - worth approximately $800,000 - the chief architect for the Ethereum platform also owns $24,000 worth of Kyber Network (KNC) tokens; $400,000 in Maker (MKR) and $28,000 in OmiseGo (OMG). But Buterin’s portfolio also includes some slightly more bizarre tokens, albeit at a far smaller scale. Among these are 69 SpankChain (SPANK) tokens (strangely specific number) - worth roughly $0.01. The protocol facilitates online micropayments for viewers watching adult performers, whom they can tip with SPANK tokens. The wallet address shows this was a single transaction just under a year ago, in mid-January. Although he did give away some Ethereum to developers, as noted below, he has not yet blown his SPANK wad - none of the tokens have been used... yet. Buterin also holds a small amount of Jesus Coin (JC), valued at $0.15 at today’s prices. A joke project, similar to how Dogecoin (DOGE) began, it claims to offer users the “unique advantage of providing global access to Jesus” through such initiatives as decentralizing the church and outsourcing the forgiveness of sins. The project, which held an ICO in 2017, managed to peak at $17m at the start of 2018. Vitalik has not yet redeemed his Jesus Coin, but we hope his Jesus Coin will eventually redeem him - and any sins he may accumulate along the way. How do we know it’s Buterin’s wallet? Although some had already managed to link this wallet address to the Ethereum founder, it became publicly known earlier today. In the small hours of this morning, Buterin announced he had sent 1,000 ETH to a project building on the platform. Preston van Loon, one of the co-founders of Prysmatic Labs, which is developing an Ethereum sharding protocol for Ethereum, complained progress was slow because many of the team still needed to be in full-time employment. Buterin tweeted approximately half an hour later to say he had sent the project around $105,000 worth of Ether and included a link to his wallet address on Etherscan. Just sent 1000 eth. Yolo.https://t.co/s1q8K5Wlhs — Vitalik Non-giver of Ether (@VitalikButerin) December 19, 2018 Buterin has never fully disclosed the amount of Ether he holds. In October he said that the maximum amount he ever had was 0.9% of the total supply, which would be around $38m at current prices. The ETH in this wallet forms a small fraction of his total holdings; it’s not known how much is held in other wallets. Mr. Buterin also holds Finally Usable Crypto Karma (FUCK), a social currency. Looking at his wallet address, Crypto Briefing can confidently state that the creator of Ethereum can only give a solitary FUCK. The author is invested in digital assets, including ETH which is mentioned in this article. Join the conversation on Telegram and Twitter!

Why Coinbase Will List More ERC20 Tokens In the Coming Days

Only a few hours ago, crypto traders were treated to an early Christmas by Coinbase as the exchange listed 4 new cryptocurrencies on its Pro Version of the platform. The newly listed digital assets are Dai (DAI), Maker (MKR), Golem, (GNT) and Zilliqa (ZIL). The exchange went on to state that the smart contract functionality of these tokens will initially not be available. The announcement by Coinbase stated: Each of these tokens has associated functionality, some of which may be in beta. Moreover, each token’s associated functionality is not currently directly accessible via the Coinbase Pro platform. Coinbase’s Intention to Support the ERC20 Technical Standard Across the Platform News of the addition of more ERC20 tokens does not come as a surprise to many crypto enthusiasts who were aware that the exchange had announced its plan to support the Ethereum ERC20 technical standard on the platform. A March 2018 announcement by the exchange stated the following: We’re excited to announce our intention to support the Ethereum ERC20 technical standard for Coinbase in the coming months. This paves the way for supporting ERC20 assets across Coinbase products in the future... Prominent ERC20 Tokens Listed By Coinbase The past few months and days have seen the platform list the following ERC20 tokens: 0x (ZRX), Basic Attention Token (BAT), USD Coin (USDC), Civic (CVC), district0x (DNT), Loom Network (LOOM) and Decentraland (MANA). This is in addition to the recently listed DAI (DAI), Golem (GNT), Maker (MKR), and Zilliqa (ZIL). Revisiting the List of 31 Digital Asset the Exchange Had Announced it Was Exploring Out of the 31 digital asset that Coinbase has announced it was exploring on supporting on the platform, only 6 are on their own blockchain networks. They include ADA, EOS, NEO, XLM, XRP and Tezos (XTZ). The rest are ERC20 tokens. A list of ERC20 tokens yet to be listed by the exchange are as follows. Aeternity (AE), Aragon (ANT), Bread Wallet (BRD), EnjinCoin (ENJ), IOST (IOST), Kin (KIN), Kyber Network (KNC), ChainLink (LINK), Loopring (LRC), Mainframe (MFT), OmiseGo (OMG), Po.et (POE), QuarkChain (QKC), Augur (REP), Request Network (REQ), Status (SNT) and Storj (STORJ) Savvy crypto traders have probably started the process of elimination to try and figure out which of the 17 remaining tokens will be next on Coinbase thus providing profitable trading opportunities. What About XRP, Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA)? Based on Coinbase’s aforementioned preference to list ERC20 tokens first, it is safe to conclude that the exchange will not list the popular cryptocurrencies of XRP, XLM and ADA anytime soon. However, their is still a slight chance that the exchange might surprise us like they did when they listed ZCash. No one expected them to list ZEC before XLM and ADA. As we approach Christmas, the odds of Coinbase surprising us by listing an unlikely coin (not ERC20 token) should be considered. But we also have to be realistic based on the fact that ERC20 tokens are more likely to be listed before XLM, ADA and XRP. What are your thoughts on the possibilty of Coinbase continuing to list more ERC20 tokens? Please let us know in the comment section below.

Kyber Integration Enables the use of ERC20 Tokens For Land Auctions on Decentraland (MANA)

The team at Kyber recently posted a blog announcing that the decentralized virtual reality platform Decentraland has integrated with the Kyber platform, enabling LAND purchasers the option to pay in eight different ERC20 tokens during the upcoming LAND auction. The eight different ERC20 tokens that can be used to purchase LAND are MKR, DAI, BNB, KNC, ZIL, RCN, ELF and SNT. Through the integration of Kyber’s liquidity protocol, Kyber’s smart contracts convert the LAND buyer’s ERC20 token to MANA before the Decentraland contracts validate the amount of MANA received/traded.

Triangular Arbitrage Today: QKC, QTUM, DENT, NEO and More

In the world of cryptocurrency, different exchanges often maintain slightly different prices. That allows for some interesting arbitrage opportunities, even though it often requires the use of at least two exchanges and potentially multiple trading markets. The following options are very interesting, albeit also a bit time-consuming. #6 POLY to QKC When a triangular arbitrage opportunity presents itself, one has to be willing to look well beyond the more traditional markets. In this particular trade, there is a chance for a near 20% gain when buying POLY on Koinex and converting it to QKC on the Binance exchange. Said obtained funds can then be transferred to WazirX, a relatively small exchange, for a healthy profit, due to its high QKC price. #5 DENT to QKC DENT is the native currency of the project focusing on making mobile data globally tradeable. Its value on WazirX - in INR value - is very low, which would allow DENT to be sent to CoinDCX for a conversion to QKC. Once the QKC is obtained, it should be transferred back to WaxirX for a profit. This is a bit of a back-and-forth trade for those with access to Indian Rupees, but it can yield a decent profit. #4 QKC Cross-Platform Multi-currency It seems there are numerous opportunities to make money with QKC these days, depending on overall market liquidity. Buying QKC from CoinDXC with BTC and selling it on WazirX for INR can result in a 10% profit. This would also give users access to INR balance to explore the other arbitrage opportunities listed above, which can be well worth checking out for those willing to take a gamble. #3 KNC to NEO It doesn’t happen that often NEO is involved in triangular arbitrage opportunities, though today is a bit different. Buying KNC on Binance with Bitcoin and sending it to Kucoin for a NEO conversion will open a new arbitrage opportunity. Selling that NEO balance on EXMO can yield a profit of up to 9%, depending on overall liquidity. #2 NEXO to NEO The NEO arbitrage opportunity on EXMO can be explored through other trading pairs as well. For those willing to buy NEXO with Indian Rupees through BitBns, will allow them to convert this funds to NEO on CoinDCX before sending it on to EXMO. It is a slightly alternative route to explore, although that doesn’t make it less viable by default. #1 CMT to QTUM This particular arbitrage opportunity makes for an exciting trade. Users can buy CMT on OKEx with Bitcoin. If they move their CMT to CoinDCX and convert it to QTUM, a new arbitrage option will present itself rather quickly. All that is left is moving the QTUM to BitBns and selling it on whichever trading pairs offers the most advantageous pricing. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Wrapped BTC (WBTC) to Allow Bitcoin Trading on the Ethereum Network

A community of blockchain enterprises including BitGo, the Kyber Network (KNC), and Republic Protocol (REN) recently unveiled their new WBTC project which stands for ‘Wrapped Bitcoin.’ WBTC is a fully backed Bitcoin ERC-20 token that will be launched in January of 2019. The token does not integrate the two protocols, but it will still bring some liquidity to the BTC market as users will now be able to trade BTC at a higher transaction speed on the ETH blockchain. Numerous decentralized exchanges and financial projects have already committed to supporting the adoption of WBTC. (JF)

Wrapped Bitcoin brings powers of Bitcoin and ERC20 tokens together

The joint effort by Kyber Network (KNC), Republic Protocol (REN) and BitGO seems to be working well as the teams together announced the launch WBTC - or Wrapped Bitcoin. WBTC is a proposed ERC-20 token which is backed up by ‘physical’ reserves of BTC and will be expected to remain tethered to Bitcoin’s value. Wrapped Bitcoin: the power of Bitcoin with the flexibility of an ERC20 token WBTC is a community-focused initiative and is the culmination of a long-standing joint effort relationship between BitGo, Kyber Network, and Republic Protocol. WBTC (Wrapped Bitcoin) will launch as a fully backed Bitcoin ERC20 token on Ethereum in January 2019. The initiative will bridge Bitcoin liquidity and the decentralized ecosystem on Ethereum, enhancing all decentralized applications. WBTC will allow the Ethereum network to be leveraged to enable new applications and use cases for Bitcoin. Prominent decentralized exchanges and financial projects, including MakerDAO, Dharma, Airswap, IDEX, Compound, DDEX, Hydro Protocol, Set Protocol, and Prycto have all committed to supporting the adoption of WBTC and will participate as launch members. Loi Luu, Co-founder, and CEO of Kyber Network “This initiative will be bringing together the liquidity of Bitcoin and the extensive smart contract developer ecosystem of Ethereum.” “Applications on Ethereum such as decentralized exchanges and financial protocols will all be able to use Bitcoin seamlessly, creating bitcoin trading pairs which have been impossible until now. At the same time, the usage of Bitcoin will be expanded by having more decentralized use cases, such as exchange, loans, token payments.” WBTC will allow any project to include WBTC in their platform without restrictions, while users can easily purchase WBTC tokens on any supported swap service or exchange. The effort will be community driven from launch, with governance dictated through a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) comprised of reputable projects in the cryptocurrency space. DAO members will publicly audit the WBTC tokens to make sure that the balances in the custodian wallet and the smart contract match. In addition, they will vote and decide on any proposed improvements. The addition of any new minters, custodians, and DAO members as well as the removal of the existing members will happen via a transparent voting process in the DAO. At launch, Kyber and Republic Protocol will pre-mint WBTC tokens from their own Bitcoin inventory to provide initial liquidity and make WBTC available for atomic swaps with users. Taiyang Zhang, CEO Republic Protocol was quoted saying “The addition of atomic swap technology to the WBTC initiative will allow users to deposit and withdraw BTC/WBTC securely and with confidence, which will assist in enabling WBTC adoption to reach the masses.” This initiative, including the initial minters and DAO, is expected to go live in January 2019. In advance of the launch, the specifications will be made known on GitHub/Gitter for all members of the cryptocurrency community to discuss and propose improvements on both the token and the governance model. The project seems promising as the strength of bitcoin and ERC20 token could bring superlative result and add more power to cryptocurrencies. It would be exciting to see how the product phases out after it is launched. Will Wrapped Bitcoin deliver in line with how it is anticipated to be?

Analysis: 11 coins with sizzling sentiment as BTC wobbles

This has got to be the worst time to be trading crypto. At least a few months ago, it was pretty clear we were in a downtrend. Now, every move of Bitcoin is micro-analyzed, even as those moves become more microscopic, with everyone hoping to find signs that we might finally be turning around. But as of right now, looking at sentiment analysis, most signs still point down (this morning’s spike and $USDT craziness notwithstanding). Let’s look at the market charts to see what I’m talking about. Disclaimer: I write these things late Sunday night, generally. So if something big happens between then and publication, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. For the last few months, Bitcoin just can’t get any sustained sentiment going. We had a peak again last week, leading up to our big drop on the 10th. And that’s the been the pattern for the last few months. We get some sustained bullish action, we reach a peak, people get excited that it’s going to continue and then, bam, the bottom falls out. Sentiment rebounded pretty quick, as did the price of Bitcoin, and we remain in the narrowing price channel we’ve been in so far this fall. That’s not terrible news for Alts, who have been able to ride Bitcoin’s stability to some nice gains. Sentiment has fallen recently with less certainty surrounding Bitcoin, but as long as we don’t see another major drop, people may continue to test the waters and throw some money into other currencies. A couple of things worth noting in the Alts market. You can expect some continued buzz around $ADA, $BAT, $XLM and $ZEC as the world awaits which coin will next be added to Coinbase. As you likely know, $ZRX began trading on Coinbase Pro last week and saw a healthy bump. $BAT has been in my weekly picks for a few weeks now and continues to be the highest rated of the “Coinbase 5”, by sentiment. Another thing worth noting is $BNB. Binance’s native currency has been in the weekly picks for the last two weeks. Generally speaking, $BNB does best in bear markets as the strongest exchange-based coin. If things turn south, it may be worth watching. Stay vigilant though. Eventually, Bitcoin is going to have to pick a direction and it’ll probably be more dramatic than we’ve seen when it does. The Top Alts These coins/tokens had the highest power rating in my analysis this week. The power rating is a weighted calculation taking into account sentiment, volume and the number of unique users who mentioned a coin. Generally, I eliminate any coins mentioned by less than 3 individual people as I don’t feel it would be representative of a trend. One important note: Pay close attention to the previous week’s price action. High sentiment can indicate both a possible move or a possible peak in price, however temporary. I’ll be adding signals soon to indicate this, but be wary of any coin with a major price shift in the last week. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.
