Cryptocurrency Market Update: A New Brave Browser Boosts BAT

FOMO Moments Another flat Saturday as markets are stagnant; Only BAT and DGTX heading higher. The weekend has brought no joy to crypto markets which have remained immobile for the past few days. The slow downward slide seems to have halted just below $210 billion market capitalization where things remain for another day. Bitcoin is at the exact same place it was on Friday, $6,480 and there is no sign of a breakout just yet. A similar story is being played out in the Ethereum camp during Asian trading this morning. ETH is immobile again today at around $204. Alcoins are nearly all in the green but gains are so small they are hardly worth mentioning. The biggest movement in the top ten is Stellar which has inched up 2.2% to $0.244 this morning. The rest are static with small upwards movement of around one percent on the day. The top twenty is a little more mixed with more red creeping in. Zcash is also up 2.2% trading at $120 right now but the rest have moved less than a percentage point in either direction. Interest in altcoins is at rock bottom this month. Today’s big pump is BAT which has jumped 16% to $0.240 on the day. A new Brave browser release with BAT integrated for tipping websites was launched a couple of days ago which is driving momentum now. Trade volume has quadrupled from $6 to $24 million, over 60% of which is on Binance. New Brave desktop browser available for download at https://t.co/4wVWi8TElt. This latest milestone on our way to 1.0 is Chromium-based, has 22% faster load time than our previous Muon-based version, & unveils Brave Rewards beta (previously Brave Payments). https://t.co/Zppx5mUZzN pic.twitter.com/RZ5tLm9QDr — Brave Software (@brave) October 18, 2018 Basic Attention Token has made 33% since this time last Saturday and is also up over 50% on the month. Digitex Futures is also in pump mode, adding 15% to its price levels over the past 24 hours and Aeternity is looking strong with a 10% gain. Getting the red end of the digital stick is Polymath, as yesterday’s pump predictably dumps today. POLY has dropped 11% of its previous gains in this tired pattern of ups and downs. Komodo is also shedding some today with a 7% decline. Total crypto market capitalization has not moved since Friday morning and is still at $208 billion. The daily lows are getting shallower though so it could get back over $210 billion during Euro and US trading today. Since last weekend markets have climbed 3.5% but they are still very flat. 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.

Polymath Soars As STO Excitement Over tZero Peaks

Polymath (POLY) tokens surged as much as 20% in value during Thursday’s trading as markets reacted to the news tZero has issued its security tokens to investors. In a price surge reminiscent of the December bull-run, POLY is currently trading at $0.22. The tokens peaked at around 14:00 BST when the market cap surpassed $70m: just shy of $0.25 per individual coin. The price declined in the past four hours. The POLY market cap stood at $64m at press time, $6m below where it had been earlier that same day. Polymath first started to rise last night, when coins spiked from $0.20 to over $0.24 within an hour. Although the price quickly corrected, tokens began to rise steadily throughout the evening and into Thursday morning. tZero token sale This initial spike followed news on Tuesday that tZero, a blockchain-based subsidiary of the internet retailer Overstock, had issued its security tokens. Sold during a security token offering (STO), between December and early August, investors with a signed agreement for future equity (SAFE) were issued with the tokens as early as last Friday. Although the tokens have now been issued, holders still won’t be able to touch them. To be fully compliant with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), security tokens need to be locked down for a full 90 days before they can be released, and then only to accredited investors. Normal investors will have to wait until early August 2019 - exactly a year after the token sale - before they can take their holdings. STO v. ICO The security token was an unfamiliar concept, this time last year. The ICO was king; raking in projects millions of dollars in the blink of an eye, sometimes literally in the case of the Basic Attention Token (BAT) sale. The market has changed since then. Investors became aware utility tokens didn’t confer much in the way of rights or responsibilities. The countless investors that took part in the Tezos (XTZ) sale - which raised nearly $240m for the project - had to chew their fingernails for nearly a year before they could access their tokens. Many promptly sold, unsurprisingly. The ICO ecosystem has also been dogged by regulatory uncertainty. The SEC has suggested that they may represent unlicensed security token sales. Ripple is in court in California, battling allegations that the ICO for the XRP token was really a security sale. Polymath Price Security tokens solve some of the issues that plague ICOs. Being backed by a tangible asset gives them more security than the vague promise of future utility. STOs are also already regulated, protecting investors from bad actors and outright scams. Polymath and tZero have sometimes been called the ‘Starsky and Hutch’ of the security token world; the two formed a partnership at the beginning of the year. As a security token platform, Polymath provided tZero with advice throughout their STO. It announced in September it would host the STO for a new real estate project, based on the blockchain. Investors are excited by the prospect of security tokens but there are still too few around. Existing actors, like Polymath and tZero, will likely benefit from each other’s good coverage until such time as the market expands and matures. It’s easy for investors to still lump all of the projects associated with security tokens together. This will change. A safe bet? Who knows. It might be a secure bet...

Polymath Partners with Netcoins, a Crypto OTC Provider

Polymath, a security token platform, has partnered with Netcoins to provide over-the-counter cryptocurrency trading for security token issuers on Polymath’s platform. Polymath has been quickly positioning itself as one of the top platforms for tokenized securities. Compliant security tokens soon tradeable Recently, Polymath announced that they would be working alongside Netcoins, allowing OTC transactions globally for the Polymath platform. Netcoins is currently operating crypto transactions in 21,000+ retail locations in Canada, Europe, and Austrailia. The partnership hopes to bring liquidity to Polymath’s platform and give the tokenized security industry much-needed exposure. Polymath is a decentralized platform that aims to make it easy to create compliant tokenized securities. Polymath’s goal is ultimately to bring the multi-trillion dollar financial securities industry to the blockchain space by streamlining the entire process. Now, OTC trading through a collaboration with Netcoins means that the Polymath platform will soon have a gateway for fiat. Polymath CEO Trevor Koverko commented on the announcement saying: “Netcoins will provide top-quality OTC trading services to Polymath issuers which is huge for us... many issuers want the ability to convert some or all of the cryptocurrency they raise into fiat, and we are pleased to provide issuers a direct line to Netcoins.” The CEO of Netcoins, Mark Binns, likewise commented on the announcement by emphasizing that Netcoins will bring liquidity to the Polymath platforms. “We have complimentary services that can benefit both of our organizations,” he said. Polymath has been active the last few months in their partnerships, expansion, and visibility. They are developing their own token standard, the ST20, a KYC-compliant open source standard. ST20 tokens can only be held by investors who are authorized. Polymath effectively is providing the cryptocurrency space with an entirely new infrastructure for tokenized securities. Polymath’s vision is best captured by Graeme Moore’s recent statement that “security tokens will become the default method used for financial securities.” Polymath’s recent partnership with Netcoins is working towards this future. Have any thoughts on Polymath’s recent partnership? Do we need an ST20 standard? Leave your thoughts in the comments. Image courtesy of Bitcoin Exchange Guide.

Polymath CEO Believes Security Tokens Will Replace ICOs

Analysis: Bitcoin Hash Power Heading Towards a Bitmain Monopoly

Bitcoin mining was once a hobbyist activity. Satoshi's Proof of Work (PoW) design was almost perfect. Miners would get rewards in the form of new Bitcoin. In turn, their hash power would help keep the network safe and immune to attacks. However, the fierce competition in the mining arena has made it impossible for the small players to keep the pace. The clear winner of this race is Bitmain, with its immense hash power. The remaining mining power is shared among a score of other companies - pitting the Bitcoin-mining industry towards a monopoly. And a monopoly in a decentralized sector is like dancing with the devil. If Bitmain or another single entity keeps on accumulating the market share of the hash power, it could cause the protocol to be vulnerable to 51% attacks in future. (KE)
