XRP Price Remains Stuck at $0.5 Despite Wider Integration in the Finance Sector

In the world of cryptocurrencies and digital assets, a lot of interesting things are happening lately. Most of the top markets remain subdued, and XRP is - once again - no exception in this department. The asset continues to struggle for price stability, as $0.5 remains a level of substantial resistance. A few interesting days may loom ahead for XRP, although the price impact may be minimal. XRP Price Can’t Escape the $0.5 Level Earlier this week, it seemed to be a matter of time until XRP broke through to $0.55. As has been the case more often than not throughout 2018, no uptrends can be sustained for more than a few hours. For XRP watchers, this means the wait for a price above $0.5 is still far from over, although things are not looking all that bad either. Over the past 24 hours, there has been a small downtrend for XRP in both USD and BTC value. The asset lost 2.2% in USD value, primarily because XRP dropped by 1.9% against Bitcoin. This latter part has been a major struggle for XRP this year, as maintaining control over the 8,000 Satoshi level is not as easy as initially assumed. As such, the current Bitcoin price slip drags everything else down with it once again. There is some good news which could give the XRP price a healthy boost in the coming days. First of all, Paycent is adding XRP support to their platform come December 2018. This will let users spend these funds through the native app, or convert it to fiat currencies using their native Paycent card. Another major use case for this asset, as it continues to gain traction in the payment card industry lately. Mark your calendars! #XRP #Ripple will be available on the #Paycent App on December 7th through the Paycent Card. @rippleSpend #BTC , #ETH , #LTC , #DASH, #BNB throughout the world with the Paycent App today: https://t.co/9YgvoH8Zwz Join the conversation https://t.co/xl6f1rK59U pic.twitter.com/zG9CsckLdU — Paycent (@PaycentGlobal) November 14, 2018 Second, it seems the mainstream media in the UK is showing XRP some love these days. The ongoing “spat” between Ripple and Swift makes for some interesting headlines, for rather obvious reasons. Although the impact by the media has certainly diminished over the years, this is still a promising sign regardless. Ripple is starting to pop up in the mainstream newspapers over here in England. via @telegraph#XRPCommunity #ripple #xrpthestandard https://t.co/nUzBoukdwf — XRP London (@XrpLondon) November 13, 2018 Every cryptocurrency or digital asset needs a meme now and then. In the case of XRP, a cat meme will do the trick nicely. Although this meme will not necessarily convince SBI to officially use xRapid in a live manner, the sentiment is rather clear. The impact of xRapid on the actual XRP price remains difficult to predict, though. I think today it’s time for @sbivc_official to walk/run to the button and give it a hard push so we can start using #xrapid with big numbers of volume! #xrp #ripple strategetly before 15th of November @bgarlinghouse @JoelKatz pic.twitter.com/HNzopuoXo2 — XRP to the M (@bosontwerp) November 14, 2018 Although there are interesting things going on behind the scenes, the XRP value is not evolving in a similar direction. While that is not uncommon by any means, it will certainly put some holders and speculators on edge. For the time being, it seems no real uptrend will materialize for more than a few hours, although the week isn’t over by any means. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Ethereum Price Watch: Currency Stays Put Near $215 Region in Wake of Fresh New Exit Scam

At press time, Ether is trading at a stable price point of $214.06, thereby showcasing a minor value gain of around 1.45% since yesterday afternoon. As is clear from the chart below, ETH has finally found some stability after having dipped below the $200 threshold around a week back. However, as an overall bearish sentiment continues to loom large over the global crypto sector, it is still unclear as to what the future really has in store for Ether at this point. Korean Exit Scam Makes Way With Around $2.7 Million Worth of ETH The crypto industry is known to be plagued with a number of scams that are designed to rip off unsuspecting investors of their hard-earned money. In this regard, it is now being reported that a South Korean crypto startup has pulled off an exit scam wherein the owners of the firm were able to steal thousands of Ether tokens from their initial backers. - New Korean exchange Pure Bit just pulled an exit scam claiming 13,000ETH from its investors as we speak. Kakao channels are emptying and the site has been pulled. This is why we can’t have nice things. Karma comes back hard when you screw this many people over. pic.twitter.com/GDkjiz1gAq — Korean Cryptocurrency & Blockchain News (@BlockchainROK) November 9, 2018 According to local media outlets, PureBit, a firm that promoted itself as being a crypto exchange platform, was able to procure a total of 13,000 Ether (ETH) before the owners swiftly transferred the received ETH into their personal wallets. Decentralized Exchanges Witness Drop in Daily Trade Volume Following the SEC’s Latest Regulatory Actions After reports of the SEC taking stringent action against EtherDelta starting surfacing all over the internet, it is now be being said that a lot of crypto traders are shying away from using decentralized crypto trading platforms till they hear more from the regulatory body regarding its future plan of action in relation to DEXs. Yesterday: SEC charges founder of EtherDelta decentralized exchange Today: The volume of the world's top 2 decentralized exchanges is down over 50% pic.twitter.com/lReBbp3NUm — DRIVE Markets (@DriveMarkets) November 9, 2018 According to the SEC, the folks over at Etherdelta were illegally indulging in activities related to securities trading— something which the government body found to be in direct violation of its existing rules of conduct. Final Take While the ETH ecosystem has been facing a lot of backlash from investors over the past couple of weeks (especially regarding its failed Constantinople Hardfork), people like Eric Vorhees, the CEO of ShapeShift, still continue to view the premier digital asset as a force to reckon with in today’s digital currency market. At the time of writing this article, Ethereum possesses a total market cap of USD $21.9 Billion.

Daily Cryptocurrency News - 9th November 2018

Welcome to the daily news of 9th November 2018. Here are the most important headlines for today: Bitmain Layout 90,000 Mining Machines & More details about the future Bitcoin Cash Fork The battle of billionaires is starting. Apparently, Roger Ver and Craig Wright couldn’t decide on the future of Bitcoin Cash. Therefore, on November 15th - the BCH will split into two rival chains: Bitcoin Cash ABC - Roger Ver’s side and Bitcoin Cash SV - Created by Craig Wright. This comes as a results of Ver and Wright disagreeing over the BCH’s future.The feud caught the fans attention, and the drama started coming yesterday - when Ray [REDACTED] created a thread with everything you need to know about the future BCH fork. This ‘war’ between billionaires is mostly childish - with each other throwing insults at each other. But Bitmain’s preparing for that war by deploying 90,000 S9 mining machines in Xinjiang. Wu Jihan is one of the latest self-made billionaire thanks to Bitcoin mining. This could have been one of the facts that brought a decrease in the Bitcoin price, as BCH lost around $2 Billions since their top value in November - funds that probably were exchanged directly to USD by BCH investors. These news weren’t appreciated by the traders - as after a 45.91% increase from November 2nd to November 7th, the BCH/USD pair dropped more than 4.8% percent. For more details, you may check the /r/bitcoincash subreddit as well as Cointelegraph’s article. Binance to Create a Research Wing for ‘Institutional-Grade’ Research Reports While others fight for power, Binance is pursuing forward into being the #1 entity in the blockchain & cryptocurrency space by launching a new division of Binance. Binance Research is a service that will create institutional-grade research reports with the main purpose of increasing the transparency & improve the quality of information in the cryptocurrency space. The Binance Research was launched one day ago and may be the pillar that cryptocurrency need for institutional investors to come along. The division already published two reports about LOOM Network (LOOM) and Gochain (GO). This is one of the best initiatives we’ve seen in the crypto space in a long time. The research done by their team is a comprehensive one with details about a cryptocurrency along with its purpose, team, trading data and many others. The future report will be one about Pundi X. We believe this service is among the best ones in the crypto space. With a service like this, people could avoid investing into cryptocurrencies with potential but with a poor team - such as Oyster (PRL). To keep in touch with their latest reports, you may check the Binance Research Twitter. BitTube Could Be The Bridge Between Crypto & FIAT - A user-friendly service According to a post created by Kamillenteo on /r/cryptocurrency, BitTube will have a service that could allow people to purchase cryptocurrency with Paypal. The main issue here from what we’ve understand is that you cannot buy BTC/ETH directly, but only TUBE - that you can use using Bit Tube’s Airtime extension ( More details about that on Youtube). BitTube doesn’t operate this on their own. So the chances of that service to be shut down are few to none. Their main partner is WireCards, which also have a partnership with Paypal, allowing users to buy TUBE tokens using PayPal for a 1-1.5% fee. Of course, the service doesn’t have an ulimited amount of crypto that you can purchase. The maximum that you can do it for now is 100 Euro. However, that’s not what BitTube was created for. BitTube wants to reward content creators in a new way - but a bit similar to Brave Browser’s idea. According to them, you can reward your favorite content creators from any website in the same way that Twitch works - or even with a direct donation. More details on BitTube’s Medium 93% of UK Residents Heard About Bitcoin, only 4% Bought it According to a study created by YouGov, 9 out of 10 Brits have heard about Bitcoin. From those, 4% declared that they understand Bitcoin ‘very well’, 23% stated they know it ‘fairly well’ - while the most % was on ‘Not very well’ or ‘Not at all well’. And the statistics also show that most of the people ‘ know someone that bought bitcoin’ while they personally chose not to invest in something like this. And most of the people that bought Bitcoin are the young aged ones, between 18 to 34 years old. We recommend you to read the full document here. Unfortunately, we don’t know how many people participated in this questionnaire to see how accurate are the details. What can we learn from this? The percentage of people that declared they know bitcoin ‘very well’ is equal to the percentage of people that bought it. Therefore, most of the Brits have problems understanding Bitcoin and his use case. According to the questionnaire, most of the Brits don’t believe in a cryptocurrency controlled by the people using it. This can be for a variety of reasons such as : They didn’t unde

Binance Launches Research Arm For "Institutional-Grade Research Reports"

Popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance announced today that it has launched a new division dedicated specifically to industry analysis.In a November 8, 2018, announcement, Binance described some of the responsibilities of this new division, which has been dubbed Binance Research. The research is “focused on the creation of institutional-grade research reports” and has “the aim of increasing transparency and improving the quality of information available within the crypto space.”To this end, Binance has paired the official public announcement of this new division with some of the research that it has already been doing before going public. The articles that have gone live concurrently are examples of the kind of content that this new division will generate in the future. Research first dropped a report on the development of the Loom Network, assessing its capabilities by a wide number of metrics. Not only does the report list the accomplishments and milestones of the projects, but it also provides data and graphs on its historical price data, key features, token sale data and even the specific wallet addresses that hold more than 90 percent of said tokens. The report on GoChain has a similar level of depth in its findings, providing everything from short biographies on lead developers to snippets of the actual code, as well as including all of the previously mentioned metrics of sales history and more. For a first-day release of this new division, the existing research and analysis appear to be comprehensive in depth and scope. Binance Research has promised to release a third set of analytics on Pundi X “with more set to be regularly released over the coming weeks.” This article originally appeared on Bitcoin Magazine.

Triangular Arbitrage Today: Easy Profits of up to 17%

In the world of triangular cryptocurrency arbitrage, big profits are relatively easy to achieve. That will only happen if all involved exchanges and currencies offer major liquidity, which is not always a guarantee. The following six options stand out today, as significant profits are waiting to be secured. MANA (Bittrex / CoinDelta / Bitbns) One of the more appealing triangular arbitrage opportunities today comes in the form of MANA. This altcoin can be purchased on CoinDelta with Indian Rupee at a relatively low price. Transferring these funds to Bittrex for a conversion to LOOM allows users to sell the second currency on BitBns for a healthy profit. If successful, gains of roughly 15% are not out of reach by any means. ZRX (Binance / Livecoin / Bitfinex) Whenever a triangular arbitrage opportunity presents itself, one has to look at the exchanges involved. In the case of ZRX, there are several key exchanges involved. Buying ZRX with US Dollars on Livecoin and converting them to CND on Binance is the first leg of the journey. Combined with selling the CND on Bitfinex, traders can achieve profits of roughly 12-13%. EMC (Bittrex / LiveCoin / BitBns) The arbitrage opportunity for EMC is very similar to that of MANA. It requires users to buy EMC on Livecoin and convert it to Loom on Bittrex. That LOOM balance can then be sold on BitBns for a total profit of nearly 11%. All of this will depend on overall liquidity, though, which is always difficult to predict first and foremost. CMT (Binance/ OKEx / Bitfinex) Another opportunity involving only bigger exchanges comes in the form of CMT. Buying this altcoin on OKEX and converting it to CND on Binance is a great opportunity to score some profits. Especially when selling that CND balance on Bitfinex, as that will allow for a total profit of roughly 8% with very little effort involved. QTUM (Bittrex / CoinDelta / Bitbns) It doesn’t happen all that often QTUM arbitrage opportunities arise, even though this altcoin isn’t more stable than others by any means. Buying QTUM with Indian Rupees on CoinDelta allows users to sell them on Bittrex and convert it to LOOM. These LOOM balances can then be sold on BitBns for profits of 15% or slightly more. BCH (Cryptopia / Kraken / KuCoin) It is another Bitcoin Cash arbitrage opportunity, albeit one that involves a bit more work. Users need to buy BCH with Bitcoin on Kraken and send it to Cryptopia for conversion to HST. These HST tokens can then be sold on KuCoin for a net profit of 17%. A very appealing opportunity, as it represents very easy money first and foremost. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

5% Climb For EOS As Market Jumps By $2b

Several major digital currencies and tokens such as EOS have proved that they can stay strong in the short term momentum over the past day, pushing the valuation of the crypto market to $206 billion. The volume of Bitcoin, which rejected to the mid-$3 billion regions, recovered to $4.2 billion, showing an increase in trading activity across several big crypto exchanges. Following the increase in the volume of Bitcoin, tokens and virtual assets like Pundi X, OmiseGo, Zcash, Loom, Status and Bancor have recorded gains from 8 percent to 20 percent. This portrays the big upside movement for the first time since mid-September. But what does this mean? Previous reports by CCN show that the low volume of Bitcoin has left the digital currency market in a tough spot and exposed to short-term drops, possibly below the $200 billion area. At one point, the number of Bitcoin dropped to around $3 billion, down by just over 25% from $4.2 billion. Technical analysts including Hsaka made clear that with the failure of the leading crypto to recover in volume could trigger the dominant digital currency to keep a close range until the end of the year, which could prevent the initiation of 2019 with the positive sentiment regarding digital currencies as a growing asset class. Haska explained: “To be honest, with volume and volatility petering out, I wouldn’t be surprised to see BTC hold this range for another month (and maybe till the EOY too). Would be the path of maximum pain, bears don’t get their rapid selloff to 4.8k, bulls distraught over not being able to break 6.8k.” There are expected to be several exciting announcements waiting for Bitcoin during the first few months of next year. Most importantly, this includes SolidX/VanEck Bitcoin exchange-traded fund application which is set to be evaluated by the US Securities and Exchange Commission by the end of February next year. As said by CCN: “If Bitcoin can initiate a major positive price movement prior to the year’s end impacted by the launch of BTC futures markets by Bakkt and Goldman Sachs, a positive sentiment could be carried out into the first quarter of 2019.”>/blockquote> What are your thoughts?

Tron [TRX]’s daily transactions surpass Ethereum’s daily transactions again

Justin Sun, the founder and CEO of Tron Foundation, announced today that Tron, the 11th largest cryptocurrency in the market, had surpassed Ethereum in terms of daily transactions for the first time on October 18. Tron outperformed Ethereum with 33,563 additional transactions. Sun announced on Twitter: “It is the first time that #TRON has surpassed #Ethereum in daily transaction. #TRX 599354 vs. #ETH 565791 in October 18th. It’s just the beginning! $TRX” Moreover, Tron continued to surpass Ethereum’s daily transactions on the following day, October 19, as well. Yesterday, Tron registered 629,329 transactions, while Ethereum registered only 601,119 transactions. This means that Tron surpassed Ethereum by over 28,210 transactions. Tron’s daily transactions on October 19 | Source: Twitter Ethereum daily transaction on October 19 | Source: Twitter Ethereum has always been the biggest competitor for Tron, with the Foundation always boasting of beating the second biggest cryptocurrency in the world. Recently, Sun claimed that Tron’s network will be 200 times faster than Ethereum, stating that the network will be able execute 2,000 transactions per second, as opposed to Ethereum’s 25 transactions per second. Moreover, Tron Virtual Machine [TVM] is completely compatible with Ethereum Virtual Machine [EVM] and developers can shift from EVM to TVM for “almost free”. The development tools of TVM are similar to that of Ethereum. This includes TronWeb, which is equivalent to Ethreum’s Web3.js; TRONLink, similar to Ethereum’s metamask; TronTruffle, similar to Ethereum’s Truffle, and Tron Remix is Tron’s version of Remix. During the launch of Tron Virtual Machine, Sun stated that Tron Foundation was going to reach out to the Loom Network, the next generation blockchain application platform for Ethereum. Loom Network provides developers with a user-friendly API interface and Tron aims to provide developers with a convenient way to develop dApp on their network. Dusuncesiz Dusunceli, a Twitterati said: “It seems to be a one-time surpass. Ethereum has a long*run while the Tronix just begin a new story. I believe that we should wait a bit more to compare both. And one more thing the success of the Ethereum is obvious. You need more work. Keep going man!” GoCryptoGo, another Twitterati, said: “Regardless of people’s views, for me this is great news and shows how far TRON has come in such a short time. More importantly dapps with use are being used... Tron will be big in a few years.” The post Tron [TRX]’s daily transactions surpass Ethereum’s daily transactions again appeared first on AMBCrypto.

From a zebra-drawn buggy to Chinatown, rare photos offer a new look at Kolkata

Sometime in 1930, a wealthy family living in Calcutta (now Kolkata) decided that using a horse to pull its carriage would be too conventional. So it got a zebra instead. A black and white photo shows the spectacular sight—a man with glossy, perfectly parted hair, dressed in crisp whites, sits besides the carriage driver, seemingly unaffected by the curious stares from the cars nearby. This photo of the quintessential “Bengali Babu” is just one of the many fascinating images found in Calcutta Then, Kolkata Now, a two-part book published by Roli. It’s a sweeping book that tells the story of modern India’s first capital through its past and its present. This is the fifth book in a series that began with New Delhi, followed by India, Mumbai, and Chennai. And the structure of the book captures the dramatic transformation of the eastern city, from a colonial capital to a modern-day metropolis. In Calcutta Then, Sunanda K Datta-Ray and Pramod Kapoor dive into the rich history of the city using rare images of its iconic monuments, including the Victoria Memorial under construction and the legendary Howrah bridge that crosses the Hooghly river, as well as the people who made it what it is today. There are street scenes and garden parties that all together paint a picture of the multicultural city that was the capital of British India from 1772 to 1930. And many of these photos have never been seen before. “The speciality of this Calcutta book is that while there are some brilliant pictures from overseas collections...almost 50% of the photos are from family albums,” Kapoor, who is also the founder and publisher of Roli Books, told Quartz. He met around 40 old families living in the city, some who were formerly zamindars (landlords) or linked to the maharajas, and some who had settled in Calcutta hundreds of years ago to do business. “There was a disappointment at some places and unexpected successes at some places,” he said. “Not everybody had kept their albums well, some of them didn’t care.” But in the end, he added, the photos in the book are just a fraction of what they found. In Kolkata Now, Indrajit Hazra and Anshika Varma shift the perspective towards the people that are key to the city’s identity and the unique Kolkata culture they continue to preserve—from mahjong games in Chinatown and the quintessential Bengali adda session to the spectacular celebrations of Durga Pujo. The Kolkata of today that they present is a fascinating mix of old and new, with tall new towers of glass and steel that loom over monuments over a hundred years old. Here’s a selection of photos from the book: Calcutta then A view of River Hoogly in the 1890s by Bourne and Shepherd, the famous Calcutta photographers, from the Elgin Collection. The Howrah bridge. Designed in Indo-Saracenic Revivalist architectural style, the construction of the Victoria Memorial was done by a Calcutta-based Indian firm, Martin & Co. The Howrah station. Kolkata now Kolkata’s tallest residential building looms above the city today. Roofs still form an integral part of not just Kolkata’s skyline but also its social lifeline. A round of Mahjong in full swing in the two-roomed Gee Hing Church at Tiretta Bazar in central Kolkata, the city’s older Chinatown. A typical morning adda gathering in Kolkata.

Cryptocurreny Market Update: Only Hardcore Hodlers Still in The Game

FOMO Moments Monday markets are looking red; XRP and Dash sliding, Tron and Tezos holding ground. Monday morning in Asia is a red one in crypto land as markets slide further back. There have been no more major selloffs, however, and losses are marginal. Total market capitalization is still in the $200 billion range. Bitcoin has not moved for the past four days and is still holding support at just below $6,300. BTC has dictated the flow of the rest of the market enough times this year and it seems to still be doing so as there is little movement elsewhere at the moment. Ethereum has weakened further, dropping back to $195 as ETH loses another 2% on the day. The altcoins are all red at the moment dropping a percent or two from yesterday’s levels. In the top ten XRP, Stellar and Cardano have fallen the furthest losing around 2-3 percent on the day. The rest are down between one and two percent at the moment. The top twenty shows a similar situation with Dash making the biggest drop of 3% to reach $156. The other alts are down 0-2 percent right now. Tron and Tezos are holding steady with no further losses. As usual there is a daily pump going on and at the moment it is Komodo which is up 13% to $1.13. New wallets and updates continue to flow from the team but like all other cryptocurrencies KMD is still painfully low. Komodo is level on the week but up 12% since the same time last month. At the red end of the table in the top one hundred is Nexo dropping 10%, and yesterday’s pump, Digitex Futures, is predictably dumping today falling 7%. Loom Network and Aion are also sliding 6-7 percent on the day. Total crypto market capitalization has fallen a further one percent during Asian trading this morning. Markets fell back to $198 billion but have recovered a little to climb back over $200 billion at the moment. Since last Monday crypto markets have lost 8%, and since the same time last month they are pretty much at the same level. Crypto markets have been at this bottom for around two months now, the longest inactive period since last year. Bitcoin dominance has gradually increased again and is now at 54.4% as altcoins get dumped and only hardcore hodlers remain in the game. FOMO Moments is a section that takes a daily look at the top 20 altcoins during the current trading session and analyses the best performing ones, looking for trends and possible fundamentals.

Gaming dApps Take the Spotlight as Loom Network Rises 25%

While the broader cryptocurrency market is trading in the doldrums, Loom Network, which boasts a market cap of $83 million, has seen its value increase by 25% in the last 24-hour period. Loom is a gaming and social dApp scaling solution built on Ethereum. The Loom team announced that season 2 of CryptoZombies will be introduced soon, which is a course for developing "Ethereum dApps through building their own crypto-collectibles game," according to a blog post. Much of today’s trading in Loom is unfolding on Binance in the LOOM/BTC trading pair, according to CoinMarketCap. Meanwhile, technical signals on Loom are mixed, with relative strength in bearish territory but most moving averages signaling a buy. (GT)

Loom Network up Over 20% - What Looms Ahead for the Project?

In a sea of mostly red, the Loom Network price is up over 20% in the past 24 hours. What exactly is the Loom Network, and what could possibly propel the price to shoot up in such a short period of time? Read more to find out. What is the Loom Network? At its core, the Loom Network (LOOM) is a scaling solution for Ethereum. It utilizes dAppChains which in themselves are separate ledgers running in parallel with Ethereum smart contracts. The project focuses on building games and social apps which otherwise could not be built without the use of blockchains. The native token for the network of these dAppChains is Loom, which allows developers to make their own applications. One of Loom’s accomplishment is the release of a blockchain based trading card game called Zombie Battleground. The game is dubbed “Hearthstone on the blockchain,” because the mechanics resemble the popular card game Hearthstone. Image: Loom.games Why did the Loom Network price shot up? There is no single announcement or event that can be blamed for Loom’s network price rise. What we may be seeing is increasing support for projects that are looking to bring mass adoption to cryptocurrencies as a whole. According to a medium article written by Loom’s co-founder James Martin Duffy, one of the team’s mission is to bring mass adoption to cryptocurrencies via “killer dApps.” Combining that with gaming, and you get the pefect method of attack into the mainstream. According to Duffy, games are the trojan horse to cryptocurrency mass adoption. “Games may be the first way millions of users acquire their first cryptocurrency.” PlasmaChains On another note, what could be getting traders excited is the launch of PlasmaChains for external devs and for the mainnet upcoming for Q4 2018. According to the team’s updated roadmap, some major milestones are upcoming for PlasmaChain in Q4 of 2018 / Q1 2019. Essentially, Plasma Chains use the same concept as Ethereum plasma to solve scalability issues. What that means for the average user is: “Users will now be able to have gas-less transactions and sub-second confirmation times on sidechains, all while having their token fully backed by the security of Ethereum mainnet.” - Loom Team Final Thoughts Games and Crypto definitely go hand in hand. We may see more game related projects rise in the near future as the technology behind blockchain-based servers and dApps develops. Furthermore, if Ethereum is used as the underlying network for security we may see more bullish momentum for ETH as well. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Joe Crypto: Is Bitcoin Holding Us All Back?

It’s another muggy, close and humid day on the market as the pressure continues to build, but the crypto world is being physically restrained right now as Bitcoin wrestles with resistance points ranging from $6,500 to $7,000. Until Bitcoin conquers these demons, most of the market will stay mired in minimal gains and losses. From $219.31 billion at 3PM EST yesterday to $217.77 billion today, the market was basically treading water. That leaves us looking for a few standout stars. The encouraging part is that the real chargers of the moment tend to have real news, developments and technical achievements driving their coin price. So let’s take this as positive news, rather than staring blankly at flat charts. Loom Network Bears Fruit The big winner today was an altcoin in the relative depths of the Top 100. Loom Network didn’t bother with the white papers and the theory, it simply delivered a dApp scaling solution for Ethereum. A simple update on September 14th, a Medium post detailing the company’s Q3 roadmap, has put the company back in the news and the coin has made stealthy gains all month before taking off today. A month ago the market cap was at a low point of $38.34 million. Now it sits at $90.86 million. It has been dubbed the ‘EOS of Ethereum’ and its Delegated Proof-of-Stake (dPoS) consensus means it has potential to become an Ethereum equivalent to Rootstock. Loom Network is tightly focused on video games and gambling on the blockchain with a sidechain arrangement. The company took the Loom Unity SDK on tour and gave developers a chance for a hands-on meeting. Games developers are starting to see what the blockchain can do for them and Loom Network has positioned itself in a lucrative space. In the last month, it has been in the press and is increasingly being talked of as the gambling blockchain. If it can secure even a small slice of that $51.96 billion industry, Loom Network’s current 78th place on CoinMarketCap and $83.96 million market cap will be a distant memory before long. Aeternity One For The Ages? Higher up the charts in 32nd place, Aeternity bucked the market trend and added 16.91% to its token price. Last week’s deal with LimeChain and the recent link-up with cryptocurrency exchange DSTOQ are just two of the developments that sent Aeternity on a charge this last week, reaching a market cap of $294.76 million. Hailing from the tiny European nation of Liechtenstein, it’s a blockchain with a lot of similarities to Ethereum. Yanislav Malahov played a part in Ethereum and he’s the main man behind this scalable smart contracts platform. Oracles help modify and track smart contracts, and the wider world is starting to buy in to the idea. In the last month, the coin has made steady upward progress in a turbulent market. So, it could be one to watch for the long term. Eternal Plays The Long Game Eternal had a good day in the office, too, hitting a 12.03% increase over the last 24 hours while the big guns all chalked up losses. Eternal jumped more than 640% in a single week back in August and this is relatively small in comparison. But it’s all progress. Pundi X made the first blockchain phone call and its coin price responded with a 9.98% rise to $0.0017 and the market cap hit $212.43 million. At the XBlockchain Summit in Bali, Pundi X showed the blockchain communications technology in full effect, with the first phone call on a device which needs no centralized carrier. This is big news, and if the tech works then a 10% boost in the coin price will be the warm-up. Digitex Futures Gears Up To Go Live Right down in 98th place, Digitex Futures had a day to remember with an 11.57% boost in its token price. It’s aiming for commission free trades on Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum futures, and its tech goes live in Q4. But the buzz is building and Digitex Futures is turning into an outside bet. The biggest loser of the day was Maker, but that coin has been on a charge for so long that we won’t read too much into today’s slip of 12.51%. It’s more of a correction, while Bytecoin’s 5% loss was actually an improvement on yesterday, when Binance announced it would delist the coin. Static at the Top The biggest concern is the top of the table, where only three of the top 20 coins increased in value over the last 24 hours. Even they only managed fractions of a per cent and they make up the vast majority of the cryptocurrency market. Really, we’re stuck watching Bitcoin as it goes through an existential crisis and decides just where it belongs in the world. If it can puncture these resistance points and break $7,000, then the market might look like a very different place. The author is not invested in any digital currency.

US President Donald Trump Bashes Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, and Google

Speaking to John Micklethwait, the editor in chief of Bloomberg, Donald Trump criticised Amazon, Facebook, Google and Twitter saying they censor conservatives while promoting views that are liberal. Additionally, he said a majority of people think Amazon, Facebook, and Google are very "antitrust situations" just that he won't comment about that. The three companies, according to Micklethwait, are attributed to the recent stock market increase; which Trump keeps on bashing them, something he takes pride saying its all thanks to his leadership. Trump went on bashing Google saying its "news search function is rigged and discriminates against conservative outlets" a claim he failed to prove. However, he didn't draw any conclusions of whether these companies should be broken up. (VK)
