Cryptocurrency Market Update: Binance Coin (BNB) Climbing as EOS Gets Crushed

FOMO Moments Markets recouping daily losses, Binance Coin and Nem are in the green, EOS is getting hammered. The downward motion on crypto markets has continued today as digital currencies slid further back before making a recovery. Monday’s declines have carried on into Tuesday during the Asian trading session but total market capitalization has managed to recoup to similar levels below $130 billion a couple of hours ago. Bitcoin bulls have failed to keep the digital currency above $4,000 causing it to drop into dangerous territory. A 5% dump saw BTC fall to an intraday low of $3,840 a couple of hours ago before it managed to bounce back. At the time of writing Bitcoin had pulled back to just above $4k again. Ethereum has fallen back to $112 and does not look like making any discernible recovery anytime soon. Altcoins are all still red at the moment with some getting more punishment than others. In the top ten EOS is getting pounded with a 10% dive to $2.55 as more centralization woes plague the project. As has been the case for a few weeks now Bitcoin Cash is collapsing, it was the worst performing crypto in November and has lost another 6% today. There is only one winner in the top twenty at the moment and that is Binance Coin climbing 9% on the day. BNB has reached $5.60 as it partners with Decentraland with a MANA competition and crypto Airbnb platform Tripio. Nem and Dogecoin are also gaining a little but the rest are falling, Ethereum Classic and Bitcoin Gold by the most at 6%. Pump of the day goes to Factom again adding 27%, ODEM and Pundi X are also performing strongly at the moment with double figure gains. As predicted, yesterday’s fomo altcoins are dumping today, namely Centrality, Mithril and MobileGo, all dropping double digits along with EOS. Total crypto market capitalization has managed to bounce back to yesterday’s levels after hitting a low of $124 billion a couple of hours ago. At the time of writing it is around $129 billion which is no gain over Monday. Since last Tuesday markets have gained 4% but since the same time last month they have been smashed 38%.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: Another Rebound Which May Not Last

FOMO Moments Markets rebound again, but have a long way to go; Monero, Nem and Zcash rising Bitcoin SV dumping hard. There has been another rebound today as markets bounce between two low levels. Yesterday’s decline has reversed as that $7 billion has been funneled back into crypto today to take market capitalization back over $130 billion again. Bitcoin has pulled back the 7% it lost yesterday to take it back above $4,000 again, but only just. BTC hit that support zone of $3,650 for the third time yesterday and bounced off it again. A short spurt a few hours ago has propelled Bitcoin back towards its resistance level at $4,100 which it has also hit a couple of times. Ethereum is slow to do anything these days though it has been dragged back from the sub $100 cliff by 7% to $115 at the time of writing. It is completely tethered to the movements of Bitcoin at the moment as most cryptos are. Altcoins are generally in the green during the day’s Asian trading session. The biggest climber in the top ten over the past 24 hours has been Monero, gaining 11% to knock Cardano down to eleventh. Stellar and Litecoin have both clawed back 9%, Bitcoin Cash and EOS have moved very little, and Bitcoin SV has dumped 10% down to $90, sliding back down the chart it only entered yesterday. Further down in the top twenty Nem and Zcash are making 12%, with Ethereum Classic and Neo close to 10% on the day. Continuing to fall back down the market cap charts along with Cardano is VeChain and OmiseGO. Big fomo driven pumps at the fat end of the top one hundred altcoins list are happening for Bitcoin Private. A listing on Changehero has boosted BTCP which is up over 30% at the moment. Zilliqa, Digibyte and Verge are all making more than 17% on the day. Joining Bitcoin SV at the messy end of the table is Factom and ODEM dumping all recent gains in a well repeated pattern. There are only a handful of altcoins losing ground today though. Total crypto market capitalization has gained 5.6% on the day taking it back to $131 billion where it was on Monday. Trade volume is up to $18 billion which is higher than it has been for quite some time, discounting the big purge last week. Since the same time last Wednesday however markets are still down 9%.

Huobi Big Data Report: Blockchain Voting for U.S. Military, Switzerland Launches World’s First Crypto ETP

Huobi published its report for the week running from Nov. 11th to Nov. 18th and it is marked by a decrease in digital asset prices. The report also focused on several other issues including the industrial application of blockchain technology, the use of cryptocurrencies by risky personalities, the possibility of paying taxes using cryptocurrencies, and the use of blockchain technology in elections. The 25-page report also touched on how the crypto community interacted on social media. Market and Technical Statistics The majority of digital assets registered price decreases. The market capitalization of the top 100 projects tumbled by 13.98 percent during the specified week to $175.8 billion. HC registered the largest decrease of 36.69 percent and was relegated to the 100th position. Nine projects entered the top 100 list with FCT increasing by 86.75 percent and claiming the 71st spot. Other newcomers include SRN, ODE, DGTX, ELA, BOS, PAY, INB, and THETA. As of Nov. 18th, Bitcoin was trading at $5,563.68, 13.16 percent less than its last week price. Ethereum suffered the same fate as it dropped by 19.15 percent in the same period to trade at $170.80. Due to its price drop, Ethereum was overtaken by Ripple’s XRP as the world’s second largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. The top 10 cryptocurrencies which accounted for nearly 86 percent of the entire market cap, dropped by 13.39 percent from the previous week to $157.06 billion. Bitcoin’s dominance on the market cap increased by 0.7 percent from the previous week to reach 52.94 percent. The Bitcoin hashrate increased while that of Ethereum decreased. The difficulty of Bitcoin mining remained relatively stable from the previous week and that of Ethereum increased by 0.66 percent. The top 5 Bitcoin mining pools - BTC.com, Slushpool, AntPool, F2Pool, and, ViaBTC - accounted for 60.8 percent of all Bitcoins mined in the week. Bitcoin, Ripple, and Ethereum, the top 3 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization were the most popular digital assets on Facebook and Twitter. Weekly Blockchain News The State of West Virginia reported that the first instance of blockchain voting for military personnel stationed overseas in 24 countries in the U.S midterms elections was a success. Mac Warner, the Secretary of State of the U.S. state of West Virginia was quoted as saying: “This is a first-in-the-nation project that allowed uniformed services members and overseas citizens to use a mobile application to cast a ballot secured by blockchain technology.” Still, with elections, the Democratic Party, the main opposition party in Thailand became the world’s first major political party in the world to “carry out primary elections entirely on the blockchain.” The Canadian House Finance Committee discussed cryptocurrency regulation in a bid to curb money laundering. Cryptocurrencies are anonymous and difficult to trace making them a favorite choice for some criminal actors. According to iPolitics, cryptocurrencies “have a history of being used by risky personalities such as Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.” The Monetary Authority of Singapore, Bank of England, and Bank of Canada released a joint report that “singled out central bank digital currencies as being one of the solutions that can be implemented in order to solve the challenges encountered when making cross-border payments.” Amid the nosedive in the prices of digital assets, Switzerland became the first country in the world to launch an exchange-traded product (ETP) that tracks multiple cryptocurrencies. The Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council believes that taxpayers should be allowed to pay their taxes in cryptocurrencies and this could help the “agency strengthen its collection enforcement.” Huobi Big Data Report: Blockchain Voting for U.S. Military, Switzerland Launches World’s First Crypto ETP was originally found on [blokt] - Blockchain, Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency News.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: No Recovery From Recent Rout

FOMO Moments Markets are still flat showing no sign of recovery; Monero, Iota and Bitcoin Gold making small gains. The weekend situation on crypto markets remains grim. There has been no recovery from an epic dump down to a new yearly low yesterday as total market capitalization is still around $140 billion. Bitcoin has clawed back a couple of percent on the day to take it to $4,360 after dumping to a new low of $4,195 yesterday. The predictions are not pretty however and many expect BTC to drop to $3,000 in the coming months. Ethereum has made no recovery and is still at its lowest level for 18 months, trading at $125. Altcoins are largely green today as they small gains from a huge loss over the week. In the top ten Monero is making the most headway as it adds 4% to take it to $66, Bitcoin Cash has also managed to pull 3% back on the day. The rest are up a percent or two aside from XRP which hasn’t moved. There are a couple of movers in the top twenty right now, Iota is adding 6% but it is still at a very low level of $0.322. Bitcoin Gold has made it to $20 with an 8% gain on the day and Neo has made almost 5% back. These gains are very insignificant however as most altcoins have lost as much as 40% over the past week or so. There are only three cryptos with double digit gains in the top one hundred during the Asian trading session this morning. Revain is getting some fomo with a 19% pump, Bitcoin Diamond and Nexo are also performing well at the moment with 16 and 12 percent gains respectively. At the messy end of things is ODEM dumping 15% on the day. At the time of writing total crypto market capitalization was $140 billion which has climbed 1.5% since its all-time low for the year of $136 billion yesterday. Over $40 billion has been lost since last weekend resulting in a 23% market slide. On the month markets have shrunk by a third as $70 billion has left the space. Bitcoin’s dominance is creeping up towards 54% as all of the altcoins keep bleeding. Further losses look likely as Bitcoin finds its bottom, the crypto winter is far from over.

Another Crypto Dump, $12 Billion Slashed on Monday Markets

FOMO Moments Markets getting mashed this Monday; Ethereum, Cardano, Tron and Iota dumping. Monday brings more doom and gloom to crypto land as markets have taken another turn south. A small rally over the weekend was not enough to form a sustained recovery and the bears have regained control to knock total market capitalization back below $180 billion. After a couple of days holding around the $5,600 level Bitcoin has tanked again. BTC is currently down 5% on the day and trading at $5,320 at the time of writing, further losses look likely. Ethereum is falling hard and has hit a new low for the year. Dumping almost 11% on the day, ETH is down to $157, its lowest price since May 2017. Altcoins are getting hammered again, even XRP can’t escape the bears this time, dropping 7.5% on the day. Cardano is disappearing down the digital drain, with another 12% shed today. EOS, Litecoin and Monero are all losing over 8% on the day. The only winner at the moment is Tether which has finally made it back to a buck. In the top twenty Tron, Iota and Dash are dumping hard with an 11 percent lost in 24 hours. Neo, Ethereum Classic and Tezos faring worse, all dropping over 12% on the day. For the second day Factom is the fomo pumper, adding 28% today to take FCT close to $8. Nothing has been posted on the team’s twitter feed to explain the momentum. ODEM is also defying the drop also with an 8% gain on the day. Loopring, Wanchain, Icon and Aion are all plummeting with 17-18 percent losses today. Total crypto market capitalization is down 7% at the moment as another $12 billion gets dumped pushing things down to $173 billion. Since the same time last Monday markets have lost over 18%, or almost $40 billion. A number of analysts have predicted further losses for Bitcoin et al, and they’re getting plenty today. Another new yearly low is about to be made by the looks of things. 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.

Daily Crypto Roundup 11/1/2018

North Korea sees crypto hacking funds, Hong Kong regulation talk, more comments from Jamie Dimon, a Bitlicense for a Bitcoin ATM service, and Tether solvency evidence, all while Bitcoin rattles around slightly in price at around $6,315 (via Blockmodo press time data). Lets take a closer look! North Korea’s $571 Million Crypto Hacks Are Just The Tip Of The Iceberg Cybersecurity Intelligence agency “Group-iB” recently released information showing a North Korea as the home to a significant portion of stolen crypto assets. According to Group-iB, “it has been revealed that 65 percent of the $882 million in cryptocurrency stolen from exchanges ends up in North Korea”, reported Crypto Insider. From January 2017 until now, hackers from North Korea have pirated roughly $571 million - which equates to almost 5% of North Korea’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Read on Crypto Insider Hong Kong Issues New Rules To Regulate Cryptocurrency Funds And Exchanges News comes out of Hong Kong today with parameters applicable to crypto associated funds, possibly seeing future exchange regulation, reported CoinTelegraph. The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), a regulating body for Hong Kong, stated in an announcement today that they have “identified significant risks associated with investing in virtual assets and these are set out below. In order to address these risks, the SFC is issuing guidance on the regulatory standards expected of virtual asset portfolio managers and fund distributors. The SFC is also exploring a conceptual framework for the potential regulation of virtual asset trading platform operators”. Read on CoinTelegraph Jamie Dimon Comments On Bitcoin Yet Again, Says He Doesn’t Give A Sh*t About It Last night saw Jamie Dimon (CEO of JPMorgan) at it again with more negative comments regarding Bitcoin. CoinTelegraph reports on a CNBC video about Jamie Dimon’s comment - “I never changed what I said, I just regret having said it. I didn’t want to be the spokesman against Bitcoin. I don’t really give a sh*t, that’s the point. Blockchain is real, it’s technology, but Bitcoin is not the same as a fiat currency.” Readers will remember Jamie Dimon is famous for his quote last fall, calling Bitcoin “a fraud”, as reported by CNBC. Read on CoinTelegraph New York Awards First-Ever BitLicense To Bitcoin ATM Company New York is known for its hard line on cryptocurrency regulation with its BitLicense. 12 crypto companies now have a license granted by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS). Coinsource, (a Bitcoin Teller Machine - BTM) was granted the most recent license of the 12 mentioned crypto companies. Coinsource “already has 40 BTMs in the state, having been operating under a provisional license pending full approval”, reported CoinDesk.

Read on CoinDesk Tether Produces Letter Vouching For Dollar Deposits, But Bank Hedges More news today on the Tether (USDT) front, with headlines that the stablecoin has found a new home at Deltec Bank and Trust Limited in the Bahamas. Furthermore, the bank released a letter stating USDT solvency, with enough USD to sufficiently back the Tether stablecoin. “To show proof of its bank balance, Tether released a letter dated November 1 that appeared to come from Deltec, confirming “the portfolio cash value of your account with our bank was US$1,831,322,828″ as of October 31”, CoinDesk reported today. Tether has been in the spotlight more often over the past several weeks, seeing significant drops in the coin’s price at times. Read on CoinDesk Crypto Insider Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of The Bitcoin Whitepaper Satoshi Nakamoto’s “Bitcoin: A Peer to Peer Electronic Cash” system was published on October 31st 2008, and both digital money and the entire world of finance have never looked the same since then. In order to celebrate this remarkable achievement, Crypto Insider has published two articles: the first one is an ode to the merits of the whitepaper which is meant to remind us all that our participation in the cryptocurrency space is all due to the bold efforts of Satoshi, while the second piece is an interview with Lyn Ulbricht - the mother of Ross Ulbricht. Bitcoin is the technological innovation which started all the blockchain revolution in finance, while Ross is usually referred to as the second most important person in the history of cryptocurrencies, as he provided the first empirical and irrefutable evidence that Bitcoin can be used as a currency.

Susan Sontag’s 54-year-old essay on “camp” is essential reading in 2018

What do Swan Lake, Tiffany lamps, and “Broccoli” feauring Lil Yachty all have in common? Ostensibly, nothing. But a thread runs through them all: the cultural trope known as “camp.” Camp also happens to be the theme of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s much-anticipated costume exhibition, the New York City museum announced this week. “Camp: Notes on Fashion” will be unveiled on May 6 at the annual Met Gala, an event underwritten by Gucci and led by Vogue editor-in-chief and Condé Nast artistic director Anna Wintour. The gala will be co-chaired this year by the singer and actress Lady Gaga, the tennis star Serena Williams, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, and singer Harry Styles (who recently posed in a very camp livestock-filled Gucci campaign). Andrew Bolton, head curator of the Met’s Costume Institute, will explore how the “camp sensibility” can be traced back to the French court under Louis XIV, who gathered the decorated Parisian nobility at Versailles. In that palace of high camp, “everything was pose and performance,” as Hamish Bowles puts it in Vogue. And Bolton told the New York Times that we live now in the midst of another camp explosion: “Whether it’s pop camp, queer camp, high camp or political camp—Trump is a very camp figure—I think it’s very timely.” The exhibition is inspired and informed largely by Susan Sontag’s brilliant 1964 essay, “Notes on ‘Camp,'” a treatise written over 50 years ago that managed to predict the bizarre features of today’s cultural scene to an uncanny degree. What is “camp,” anyhow? Let Susan Sontag explain The essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration. This is probably most-cited definition of Camp in Sontag’s essay, and it is how she introduces her readers to the elusive “Camp sensibility.” Though in modern usage “camp” is often used as synonymous to “kitschy” or “flamboyant.” Sontag’s definition is far more nuanced. “Camp is esoteric,” she explains, “something of a private code, a badge of identity even, among small urban cliques... I am strongly drawn to Camp, and almost as strongly offended by it.” Sontag’s “random examples of items which are part of the canon of Camp” are illustrative of the aesthetic, and worth reading in full, but they include Tiffany lamps, “the old Flash Gordon comics,” Swan Lake, and “stag movies seen without lust.” Of Sontag’s 58 “jottings” on the topic, here are a few that feel especially useful today: 25. The hallmark of Camp is the spirit of extravagance. Camp is a woman walking around in a dress made of three million feathers. The little black dress is not particularly camp, unless it is marked as such in an ironic way, like this LBD by Virgil Abloh for Off-White, pre-Fall 2018. 24. When something is just bad (rather than Camp), it’s often because it is too mediocre in its ambition. The artist hasn’t attempted to do anything really outlandish. (“It’s too much,” “It’s too fantastic,” “It’s not to be believed,” are standard phrases of Camp enthusiasm.) 55. Camp taste is, above all, a mode of enjoyment, of appreciation—not judgment. Camp is generous. It wants to enjoy. 38. Camp is the consistently aesthetic experience of the world. It incarnates a victory of “style” over “content,” “aesthetics” over “morality,” of irony over tragedy. 41. The whole point of Camp is to dethrone the serious. Camp is playful, anti-serious. More precisely, Camp involves a new, more complex relation to “the serious.” One can be serious about the frivolous, frivolous about the serious. Irony—the antithesis of seriousness—is a defining quality of camp. Above: an ironic shirt by Franco Moschino for Moschino, 1991. 27. What is extravagant in an inconsistent or an unpassionate way is not Camp. Neither can anything be Camp that does not seem to spring from an irrepressible, a virtually uncontrolled sensibility. Without passion, one gets pseudo-Camp-what is merely decorative, safe, in a word, chic. 58. The ultimate Camp statement: it’s good because it’s awful... Of course, one can’t always say that. Only under certain conditions. Camp can effectively combine high art and pop culture in a way that is not kitsch (which is simply awful). Left: Crayon-inspired “Rothola” dresses by Christian Francis Roth, 1990; Pop-Art stamped ensembles by Marc Jacobs, 2016. While Sontag is the main inspiration for the exhibit, the Met will not restrict itself entirely to her definitions. Failed seriousness is a major theme, but it’s important to note that not all examples of camp are supposed to be serious; indeed, as Bolton told the Times, “when [something] is ‘campy,’ it is more self-conscious, but we are going to look at both.” Is camp another way of saying “gay”? “[T]he history of Camp taste is part of the history of snob taste,” Sontag writes. “But since no authentic aristocrats in the old sense exist today to sponsor special tastes, who is the bearer of this taste?” What arose in the absence of true aristocrats, Sontag wrote in 1964, was “a
