Bitcoin Gaming Platform TriForce Tokens Developing Unique Blockchain Ecosystem

Pioneering UK-based Blockchain startup TriForce Tokens is disrupting the gaming market with its innovative solution of bringing gamers and developers together, cutting out the intermediary and essentially changing the whole dynamics of the industry. To this effect, the platform’s development team is actively working on its own blockchain system to bring more benefits to the gaming industry. TriForce Token Blockchain With the successful launch of new games and more in the pipeline, the TriForce Tokens’ gaming platform is gaining followers, both from the game playing community and the game developers themselves. Currently, the platform is based on the Ethereum mainnet. This means that no matter how scalable, secure or fast the platform’s network design is, it still limited to that of the Ethereum one’s. To counter the limitations, the TriForce Token team is actively developing their own blockchain ecosystem that is specifically being designed for gaming in mind. A few of the features that the blockchain will have include: A Lisk Fork: With higher transactions per second, good security and speed, Lisk are chosen as the base blockchain and TriForce Token Blockchain will be a fork. JavaSript: One of the most commonly used coding languages, JavaScript will allow developers to easily understand the blockchain, with the opportunity to easily develop and deploy 3rd party dApps. PoP and PoS: Using a unique Proof of Play and Proof of Stake hybrid consensus model, it gives the power back to the gaming community. Zero Gas: With no transactional costs, any and all transactions throughout the blockchain come at no cost. 3rd Party dApps: Developers can deploy their own dApps on the network, allowing more games to utilize the network. Non-Fungible Tokens: Apart from the regular tokens the new blockchain will use, it will also provide non fungible tokens. The blockchain, with its development aimed at purely gaming, is in active development, with a testnet expected at the beginning of of 2019 with mainnet deployment in mid-2019. With its own blockchain, TriForce Tokens will also release its own gaming tokens, which will be swapped with the current ERC20 Ethereum FORCE tokens through a 1:1 ratio. About TriForce Tokens Disrupting the gaming industry through blockchain, the decentralized gaming platform offers developers to connect directly with game players, creating a unique community where players can actually interact with the developers and discuss different aspects of games, such as new updates and releases. Through the direct contact of creator and consumer, the entire traditional distribution channels are eliminated, making games cheaper and having a higher retention rate. TriForce Tokens has already released a number of PC and mobile games, including Eximius, a combination of FPS and RTS game that pitches 5 men teams against each other for domination. The last phase of their token sale is in progress, with a price of USD 0.15 for 1 FORCE. The last stage carries weekly lowering bonuses, from 5 to 15 percent.

Tether: Lower Price May Signal Switch To Regulated Stablecoins

Tether (USDT) dropped on Monday to $0.95 for the first time since May 2017, losing nearly 3% as daily trading volume spiked to $5 billion. USDT’s loss is noteworthy given that Monday’s rally saw a wave of green on CoinMarketCap, representing gains for most cryptos. Since Sunday, cryptocurrencies have surged nearly $13 billion in market capitalization led by Bitcoin 6%), Ethereum (6.44%) and Ripple (7.45%). Tether’s all-time low was $0.91 back in April 2017. It’s supposed to be pegged 1:1 with the U.S. dollar but concerns remain over transparency and proof of reserves. Tether is among four cryptos in the top 50 that lost value in early Monday trading, joining Ox (-3.14%), Lisk (-1.24%) and Steem (-0.72%). Since Oct. 6, Tether’s market cap has lost $400 million, decreasing from $2.8 billion to $2.4 billion. Last month, Singapore-based exchange DigiFinex listed a regulated stablecoin, TrueUSD (TUSD), after stating on its website that TUSD’s fiat reserves and periodic auditing make it safer than Tether. DigiFinex (like other exchanges) has recently listed other regulated coins that are tied to the dollar. These include USD Coin (USDC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD) and Paxos (PAX). Circle.com, which unveiled USD Coin, is backed by Goldman Sachs, Chinese mining giant Bitmain and other big investors, reflecting growing acceptance of tokenized sovereign currencies. Tether’s trend could signal investors’ preference for moving funds towards (what are perceived to be safer) regulated and audited coins. TrueUSD and others (mentioned above) are periodically audited by independent accounting firms. Regulated Stablecoins Rise In Value While these coins are supposed to mimic the dollar in price, they surged in value during Monday’s rally. If investors continue to trade Tether for other cryptos and stablecoins, that could lead to uptick in prices for these tokens at the expense of USDT. As of press time TrueUSD (TUSD), which is the only other stablecoin in crypto’s top 100, surged to $1.07 with its highest ever 24-hour trading volume of $57 million and market cap of $144 million. TrustToken, a regulated money services business with U.S. treasury, launched TrueUSD in early 2018. It’s also the first U.S. regulated stablecoin. Similar coins increased as well. Gemini dollar (GUSD) rose 3% to $1.04 while USD Coin (USDC) surged 8% to $1.09. Paxos increased by nearly 4% to $1.06. TrueUSD currently trades on more than 30 exchanges around the world. The venture raised $20 million from investing powerhouse Andreessen-Horowitz. Its mission is to tokenize physical assets such as real estate, cars, artwork and commodities. People should use TruseUSD because it’s the “world’s first stable coin company which receives the MSB license from U.S. regulators,” according to DigiFinex in a Sept. 14 blog. “The owner of TUSD is the beneficiary of the funds in the account. The fund can be converted into US dollars by wire transfer or other channels.” The Singapore-based exchange added that “third-party accounting firm (Cohen & Co.) will periodically audit the US dollar in the escrow account, which is used as the guarantee for TUSD. It will publish the verification of audit result as well.” The author holds digital assets, but none mentioned in this article.

Is Delta Direct Really Just A Blockfolio Signal Copycat?

With investors scattered all over the world, communication is essential in the cryptocurrency sector. Companies in the space want news about them to be accurate and fair. Teams update followers through a variety of different media, but these can become vulnerable to fake news. Now some have started using new channels to directly communicate updates to their investors and followers. For Nicolas Van Hoorde, the week has been a trial. He is the co-founder of the cryptocurrency portfolio application Delta, which successfully launched its news feed service earlier this week. Known as Delta Direct, the integrated feature allows projects to announce developments directly to followers and investors. Direct acts as a news aggregator; it pulls together posts from teams’ official Medium blog as well as their activity from Twitter and other social media platforms. Van Hoorde said in a statement at Direct’s launch that projects would be able to provide accurate updates, free of spin, and build bonds of trust between teams and their investors. “We believe that in this current state of [the] market, token teams need to be empowered to communicate with their stakeholders,” he said. “With Delta Direct we also want to counter misinformation about projects.” What’s the difference between Delta Direct and Blockfolio Signal? Delta isn’t the only platform around offering a news service. The Direct feature is very similar to the Signal service offered by the rival price-tracking application, Blockfolio. Launched back in May, the feature also enables investors to be updated by their token teams through notifications and a rolling news feed. Blockfolio created Signal because it wanted to improve trust in the community with a channel for teams to send ‘signals’ directly to their token holders. “Signals come straight from the token team leadership, free of the noise and toxicity that we so often see in the current communication channels used by the global crypto community,” Blockfolio CEO Ed Moncada, said at the time. Direct had been originally slated for release on Monday, but an unforeseen bug in the Android update pushed back the launch until Wednesday. Van Hoorde spoke to Crypto Briefing just after the successful launch. He said that despite strong similarities there were nonetheless differences between Delta Direct and Blockfolio Signal. Van Hoorde explained that Delta itself placed no restrictions on projects using their news aggregator. Whereas Blockfolio controls and edits the content posted on Signals, Direct doesn’t. This allows traders to access updates from any of the projects they follow. “It’s not our place to decide what the user should see”, he says over the phone. He admitted that not all of the projects using Delta would be legitimate; another Bitconnect could sign up and use the service tomorrow, he said. “We’re taking a different stance with Direct”, said Van Hoorde. “We don’t put restrictions; we’re more in line with decentralization”. “We’re not trying to act like an overarching god,” he added. Back at Blockfolio, where the team was busy celebrating a new $11M round led by Pantera on Thursday, Ed Moncada was circumspect about the different approaches the two teams have taken to arrive at similar solutions. “Bitcccccoooooooonnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeccct!!! ....... are the types of projects we hope NOT to see using Blockfolio Signal,” he told Crypto Briefing in an email. “We chose to roll out Blockfolio Signal in a responsible manner and in a way that builds trust within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Just like a company culture is heavily defined by its early employees, we believe that a product culture is similarly shaped by its early participants. I want to be clear that the token teams on the Blockfolio platform ultimately control their own content and we are 100% committed to making it available to all token teams in the near future. Ultimately, we really want to be responsible about how we roll it out.” Crypto fake news Misinformation has long permeated the cryptocurrency space; it leads to sharp price swings. Dogecoin (DOGE) shot up amidst reports that the project would begin cross-chain development with the Ethereum platform, at the beginning of September. Whilst ‘Dogethereum’ later turned out to be false, the story was reported on by various media outlets. The ensuing hype led to a $400m surge in the total value of DOGE. Also in early September, unnamed sources told Business Insider the investment bank Goldman Sachs was scrapping its BTC trading desk. It was already too late by the time the bank’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Martin Chavez, claimed the rumours were unsubstantiated; approximately $50bn was wiped from the market’s total value in less than a week. Probably because it has been running for longer, there are more projects available with Blockfolio; although neither service can be used for updates on major projects such as Ethereum (ETH) or Bitcoin (BTC). The one key difference is Signal us

These Tokens are the Worst Performing Cryptos in 2018: Factors and Trends

Investment consultation firm Pension Partners released an index listing the worst performing cryptocurrencies in 2018. Qtum, a cryptocurrency-backed hybrid blockchain platform, suffered a maximum 93.9 percent loss by Q3 2018. A high marketing pitch, which projected Qtum as the best of both blockchain and mainstream worlds, allowed the project to establish an all-time high token value at $82.66 in January. But eventually, Qtum project lost shine due to decreasing performance and increasing challenges. Its blockchain has seen a significant drop in the number of daily transactions, while the mining difficulty has also fallen drastically. At the press time, QTUM is trading at $3.47. NEM Plunges 91% The New Economy Movement, or NEM, began as a revolutionary blockchain project for enterprises. During early 2017, the Japanese firm received substantial financial support from local investors. NEM sold its XEM tokens at the initial rate of $0.00023107 and by the end of April 5th, 2015, the company had made its early investors a 68,537.2 percent profit. But like many other crypto assets, XEM too failed to sustain its upside and dropped squarely in 2018’s market-wide bearish bias. NEM maintains its position among the top ten cryptocurrencies market cap, indicating it has retailed market attention and belief. ICON (ICX) Drops 90% ICX, like Ether, is a crypto-native to a blockchain project called ICON and has been one of the most affected victims of the market-wide bearish sentiment. The project has everything going on for itself: steady development, a good and reliable team and an ambitious goal to interconnect difference blockchains. But regardless of efforts, ICX remains one of the most underperforming crypto assets in 2018, with a negated 90 percent return for his early investors. The ICX/USD is now trading at $0.61, much lower than its all-time high near $12. Other Tokens Cardano, Lisk, and IOTA despite their strong fundamentals have also dropped hugely in an overall bearish crypto market. While Cardano, a native token of a distributed computing platform, plunged by 89.9% by Q3 2018, Lisk and IOTA, two of the most talked-about blockchain protocol tokens, also imposed 86.6 and 87.6 percent losses on their holders, respectively. At the same time, EOS and Bitcoin turned out to be the worst-best winners, dropping the least in the market-wide crash. EOS, a close competitor of a 74.7 percent down Ethereum, dropped 33.4 percent, while Bitcoin, the leading digital currency by market cap, dropped close to 54 percent. Future Expectations The uptrend of native coins still depends on the success of their blockchain ecosystems. As of now, Ripple, Ethereum and EOS are among the most promising blockchain projects as the demand for decentralized solutions will likely grow in 2019. Many analysts believe tokens like XRP, ETH, EOS, and LTC are in bottom formation phase. Bitcoin, for instance, is already holding its downtrend at a strong bottom area below $6,000. Crypto market has found weak fundamentals in poor adoption, which again was caused by the lack of proper regulations and the failure of many blockchain projects. 2019 is considered to be a year that would bring more clarity from governments and regulators on crypto and blockchain alike. Likewise, more investments would follow suit, especially from institutional investors that are already joining crypto hedge funds, expecting a complete reverse of 2018’s bearish performance.

Lisk (LSK) Remains One of The Most Promising Crypto Investments

In a space full of worthless altcoins, Lisk (LSK) continues to remain one of the most promising crypto investments.

Even if it rises back to $50 from here, that is a 16x return! Given the future potential of Lisk (LSK) it is very unlikely that it will stop at $50.

Cryptocurrency Fire Sale: Most Tokens are 90% down from their All-Time-Highs

The 2018 bear market has knocked most cryptocurrency prices down to yearly lows with many now trading for less than 99% of their all-time-high value. Even though the market remains in a downtrend there are still some cryptocurrencies that post regular gains and could be considered good buys at the moment. Waltonchain (WTC) still gets plenty of action and today is up more than 12%. WTC currently trades for #3.52, which is 92% down from its ATH of $45.96. Lisk also rose 12% today and trades at $3.77, which is 90% down from an ATH of #39.31. Not every altcoin is a winner though. To date the biggest loser of 2018 is Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) which is down $97.55%. (RS)

Coders Renew Efforts to Fork Mining Giant Bitmain Off Siacoin Blockchain

New code is set to be released that would make obsolete the mining hardware designed by chip maker Bitmain for the decentralized storage protocol siacoin. According to an email revealed by Coindesk, Obelisk, a startup aims to offer alternative mining equipment for the protocol, has proposed code that would give those running the software the option to exclude Bitmain's ASIC miners by changing the rules so the machines are no longer compatible. The move shows how cryptocurrency communities are responding to the expanding business interests of Bitmain, the China-based mining giant which is currently seeking to raise one of the largest-ever initial public offerings (IPOs).

Lisk (LSK) Coin Shows Long-Term Upside Potential for Patient Investors

No. 26 cryptocurrency based on market cap Lisk (LSK), whose issuer is a JavaScript-fueled blockchain dApp platform, has taken it on the chin for much of this year. The LSK coin has shed more than three-quarters of its value since its peak, but today it’s recovering some lost ground in the rally, advancing about 7%. Lisk is a smart-contract-fueled platform, placing it in competition with the likes of Ethereum. But for patient investors, the long-term prospects at Lisk are bullish, given the familiarity that many developers have with JavaScript, if you could weather the storm in the interim. (GT)

Lisk Wraps Up Blockchain Meetup in Poland as LSK Price Hunts a Bottom

The Lisk team is wrapping up a series of blockchain meetups in Poland, for which it partnered with the BitBay exchange and attracted hundreds of participants. The Lisk price has shaved approximately one-third off its value since its January high of $34.92. Technical signs suggest the coin could be near a bottom, according to Crypto Daily. Lisk, a smart-contract fueled startup, hasn't been able to attract investors to match the potential of the project seemingly because of the ambitious nature of the project, which is to provide a place for developers to create decentralized apps using JavaScript.

I'm starting to think Ark Fanboys/girls are right...

About Lisk's failed DPOS system. When Lisk was much smaller (<250MM market cap) 101 delegates made sense. Lisk has outgrown that number and it is a bit absurd that we are still only allowing for 101 delegates. Is it truly that hard to add another 100 delegates to push it to 201? It would make the platform much more decentralized. Delegates, as of today, are receiving over 2MM ($2,000,000) each per year for forging. What is most disgusting is that they are literally stockpiling Lisk to ensure they and their group (GDT or Elite) stay voted in regardless of what the community does (ie; centralized platform). It is mathematically almost impossible to vote out the Elite or GDT group now. The community deserves a resolution from LiskHQ. Some suggestions include: - Push delegate numbers to 201+ (as mentioned above) - Ban groups of 10 or more delegates - Don't let delegates vote for each other or themselves (including disallowing all delegate associated storage wallets [probably quickest and most effective]) - 1 vote = 1 vote NOT 1 Lisk = 1 vote (Also an easy fix) A lot of new people investing can only afford 10-100 LSK tokens which barely moves the needle with voting rules as they are now. Not to mention the 1 LSK fee associated with each vote. Persons with <100 Lisk will not see their initial 4 LSK fee back for over a year and many are opting out of voting altogether, making matters worse. I assume Elite and GDT now have influence with LiskHQ by threatining a hard fork or sell off, which is why Max and team are not addressing the issue. It has been quite some time since any member of the Lisk Team has even mentioned the problem. So....Lisk HQ... any response or shall we sit in the dark with no answers? ...
