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.

Leaving Silicon Valley for Blockchain

In a recent duo of interviews conducted by Forbes, two ex-Silicon Valley engineers shared why they left their ‘dream jobs’ to pursue a future in blockchain as a growing number of workers do the same. Startups are eager to hook employees from the big-name Silicon Valley tech companies to boost their industry standing and tempt investors. This, combined with a growing amount of interest in the blockchain space since the 2017 Bitcoin boom, will only increase the trend towards blockchain companies. Maximilian Wang, an ex-Facebook engineer turned blockchain CEO It was in 2017 when Wang first heard about blockchain. As an engineer with Facebook Inc., he tried telling his colleagues about the technology but most of them apparently dismissed it as a scam. It became a passion for him to studiously examine blockchain whitepapers in his own time. He learned whatever he could teach himself, so when the right project came along, he would be prepared for it. ”The hardest part was not when you saw an opportunity to make money and you needed to figure out how to get that opportunity... What made it hard was that after seeing everything happened in the world outside, at the end of the day, you still had to come back to reality and try your best to focus on your work [at Facebook],” Wang told Forbes. Eventually, the right project did come along for him: Bgogo, a digital asset exchange that claims to be the first of its kind with a supernode listing authority. Wang wants to take it right to the top, with ambitions to make it the JPMorgan Chase of the blockchain world. Qi Zhou left Facebook and Google to develop his own blockchain Zhou was inspired by Google’s own Bigtable data storage system and saw a way that the underlying technology of sharding could also be done with blockchain. ”When I see an opportunity there, why can’t I go after it,” he told Forbes. Zhou’s project QuarkChain is a high-capacity peer-to-peer transactional system. Will blockchain meet Silicon Valley? As blockchain becomes more far-reaching, it becomes inevitable that its share of the space in the valley will increase. However, it is likely that Google and Facebook will continue to lose engineers such as Zhou and Wang because the foundations of their corporations are so far opposed to the decentralized ideology behind blockchain.

Zilliqa Digital Asset Report And Evaluation (DARE) by Crypto Briefing

Our Zilliqa Digital Asset Report and Evaluation takes a close look at the sharding protocol in light of its increasingly competitive operational space, and its significant delays in deployment. The scaling project may have lost some of its first-mover advantage, but there is still considerable hope that it may be one of the business models that succeeds with panache in the cryptocurrency arena. Introduction To Zilliqa Zilliqa is a high-throughput blockchain protocol that has pioneered the use of sharding technology to boost network transaction speed. The system architecture to host a network that is powerful, stable, and fast enough to process thousands of transactions per second. As a frontrunner in the scalability race, Zilliqa has garnered a significant amount of attention in the space and made solid headway toward delivering a viable product. Market Opportunity The high transaction rate targeted by Zilliqa offers a potential gateway for diversifying the use case of DLT, most of which at present remain outside the performance capability of networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum. To leverage blockchain technology in industries like gaming, digital advertising, financial markets and electronic payments, throughput is one of the most critical roadblocks currently standing in the way. With a potential breakthrough to this roadblock, Zilliqa has managed to establish partnerships with Mindshare and Infoteria to begin exploring application scenarios in the digital advertising and fintech sectors. These sectors are projected to have a combined market value of $272 billion by 2020 in the Asia-Pacific region alone. While Zilliqa was one of the first serious projects in the scalability race, the project has been joined by many others. When it comes to comparable sharding-based protocols, QuarkChain (QKC) has since entered the game, with other projects like MultiVAC (MTV) aiming to enter the market in the near future. Then there is the elephant in the room - sharding on Ethereum. Aside from sharding, a number of other methods to reach equal or higher transaction speeds exist that are employed by other blockchain projects. With this in mind, Zilliqa has taken aim at niche application scenarios through their partnerships to gain a hold on the market. While these partnerships are tantalizing for the future of the project, research on the application of blockchain technology in both the digital advertising and fintech sectors is also quickly gaining momentum. User Ecosystem Structure There are two main participants in the Zilliqa network: users and miners. A user is simply an external entity who accesses the network infrastructure to transfer funds or execute a smart contract. Each user has a public/private key pair which functions as a digital signature. Miners comprise the nodes in the network, who run a PBFT consensus protocol in return for a reward. Each miner has an associated IP address and public key that functions as an identifier for the network. Through sharding, the mining network is divided into smaller networks. To divide the nodes into shards, a group of miners called directory service nodes (DS Nodes) are selected through a PoW puzzle and placed on the Directory Service Committee (DC Committee). Members of the DC Committee change over an unspecified period of blocks, referred to as an epoch. To spur growth among dApp developers within the blockchain space, Zilliqa has launched the BuildOnZil “ecosystem fund”. However, the outcome so far has largely served to further build out a range of technical components, rather than entice other projects to build on the protocol. Whether or not future rounds of the program succeed in onboarding actual dApp projects will provide an important barometer for measuring developer sentiment toward Zilliqa. The Zilliqa Token Economy The Zilliqa economic model is based on a single native network token- ZIL. The token gives users access to the platform, where it is used to pay for transactions and run smart contracts. ZIL is in turn used to reward network nodes. On the network, blocks are validated by multiple miners simultaneously, so that miner income remains more stable in comparison to other chains. The network has a finite supply of 21 billion tokens, with each block generating new tokens to reward miners. In the whitepaper, it is stated that the team aims for all tokens to enter into circulation over a ten year period; approximately 80% in the first four years and the remaining 20% in the following six. Zilliqa Core Team Xinshu Dong (Founder and CEO) began his commercial foray into the blockchain world after establishing Anquan, providing proprietary blockchain and trusted computing solutions for financial markets. Xinshu holds a PhD in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Yaoqi Jia (Co-founder and CTO) has 5 years of experience at NUS as a Research Fellow where he gained his PhD in Computer Science. His introduction to blockc

QuarkChain Code Review: High Capacity P2P Blockchain

I’ve previously written about Quarkchain. What I saw back then was good. I still have my reservations on cross-shard transactions and the implication on finality, and I still dislike the horizontal scalability claim. But in the QuarkChain code review I definitely see some things that I like, too.
