IOST Shoots for the Moon with NASA Proposal

IOST could be on its way to the moon, quite literally. U.S. space program NASA is on the hunt for blockchain-based solutions for specific challenges that it faces. One of the problems that NASA is facing its building a model-based system engineering (MBSE) and IOST says it knows just the thing. “IOST proposes a IOST-based Product Management System (PMS) that enable permeable traceability for variants and versions in MBSE. When the product system model was defined originally, the supplier will write the initial block into the IOST Product Management System (PMS),” according to the IOST team in a blog post. The irony of space travel for a crypto project is not lost on IOST, and they are capitalizing on it. IOST is promoting the possible NASA partnership by offering free IOST tokens to followers for retweeting a post and tagging friends. IOST has promised 2,159 IOST tokens to 10 lucky winners, addding: “Fun fact: The diameter of the moon is 2,159 miles.” (GT)

IOST Achieves a More Decentralized Consensus than DPoS Systems

IOST achieves greater decentralization with its proof-of-believability consensus mechanism versus DPoS systems. IOST Co-Founder Jimmy Zhong pointed out the differences, saying that “IOST does not use EOS-style DPoS and we do not have super nodes.” Instead, IOST will have hundreds of nodes, the elections for which are currently unfolding on IOST.Biss.com. Even with greater decentralization, IOST is able to maintain scalability and censorship resistance. “We will have hundreds of nodes and they do need your support... to meet the 2.1M IOST bar and continuously do even after the main net launch,” said Zhong, adding that investors get heavily rewarded for staking their tokens.

Daily Berminal Brief: Litecoin Could Use Mimblewimble's Privacy Features And Ripple Teams Up With 10 Universities For Blockchain Research

The State of The Market - February 8, 2019 BTC: $3,462.02 (+1.44%) XRP: $0.299057 (+1.85%) ETH: $108.95 (+3.72%) The crypto market made small gains, as the total market cap added $2.4 Billion in the last 24 hours. All of the top 20 cryptocurrencies are in green, and most of them are up by more than 1%. The biggest gainer is Litecoin, which is up by nearly 12% after the Mimblewimble news. Bitcoin has successfully managed to defend its support at $3,400 for now and it is trading above $3,450. However, the trend could reverse over the weekend when volumes are low and easy to manipulate. In other news, New Zealand police claims to have made excellent progress in the Cryptopia hack. In a recent report, Detective Inspector Greg Murton claimed the stolen cryptocurrency is being tracked both by the police and specialists worldwide. Last month, Cryptopia was hacked and over $16.1 million worth of cryptocurrencies were stolen. Also, researchers discovered a Bitcoin SV user had embedded an image of child abuse on its blockchain. The image was found on Bitcoinfiles.org, a website that allows users to view documents stored on blockchain. Using Money Button's digital payments service, the user took advantage of a data limit increase on Bitcoin SV's blockchain and loaded the obscene image. 1) Over the past week, Litecoin founder Charlie Lee has suggested that Litecoin could integrate confidential transactions to increase Litecoin's fungibility. According to Lee, "Fungibility is the only property of sound money that is missing from Bitcoin and Litecoin." Lee suggests that now that the "scaling debate" has passed, the next frontier for digital assets will be fungibility and privacy. Lee also mentioned that Litecoin could utilize Mimblewimble's technology in a soft fork that would integrate the new privacy features atop Litecoin. The soft fork method is backwards compatible and would not require miners and node operators to choose between two different protocols. Lee also mentioned that the Litecoin development team "spent hours" discussing various methods for adding confidential transactions to Litecoin and he tweeted that "we are now also exploring doing bulletproof MimbleWimble with extension blocks." 2) On Thursday Ripple revealed that it had partnered with another 10 universities that will join its University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI). Among the group are top universities like Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, Morgan State, and the University of Singapore. In January, Ripple also partnered with the Institute for Fintech Research (THUIFR) at Tsinghua University in Beijing. The collective will conduct research, develop educational curricula, host conferences and award scholarships to students studying blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital payments. The new additions bring UBRI's membership to 29 universities and since 2018 Ripple has committed more than $50 million toward university partnerships. 3) IOST Latino, which is a candidate in the IOST node elections, has provided more detail about its role in the community. The Venezuela-based project, which has not yet been elected, has announced that as a node, it would earmark 25% of its rewards to social aid in Venezuela, whose economy is suffering from hyperinflation. IOST Latino believes that low crypto representation in the Latin American region is not an obstacle but an opportunity for the growth of IOST, particularly in countries like Venezuela and Brazil. The IOST Latino team says it's looking to be the voice of the project in the region and wants to make Latin America an IOST territory. (VS)

Analysts: Internet of Services (IOST) will Register Significant Gains

After hitting its bottom in 2018, the IOST/BTC pair began surging and is currently looking to trend higher. The bottoming process commenced on November 24, when the coin traded below $0.00000114, entering an entirely oversold territory. However, the asset attracted buyers, who enabled it to find support at $0.00000114. At the end of December, IOST surged and breached the resistance level that it had formed at $0.00000114, and traded as high as $0.0000014. The price then increased to $0.00000176 and traded at that level until February 4, when it soared to $0.00000181. Analysts believe that the coin will upswing once again to trade at $0.0000026 then $0.000003. (VK)

Analyst Suggests IOST is in Buy Territory

Crypto analysts believe the Internet of Services token (IOST) has reached a price where a trend reversal is imminent and chartered financial analyst Kiril Nikolaev believes the IOST / BTC pair is ready to rally.

According to Nikolaev, the IOST/BTC pairing is forming a cup and handle pattern on the 12-hour chart and bulls appear ready to rally above 0.00000181 if they can surpass the 0.00000175 resistance and turn it into a support near the 50-day MA. Nikolaev believes that if IOST remains above 0.00000175 it could rally to 0.0000026 - 0.000003. At the time of writing IOST is up 2.84% and the IOST / BTC pair currently trades for 0.00000181. (RS)

Daily Berminal Brief: Philippines Issues Crypto Regulations, And IOST Elections In Full Swing With 800 Million Votes

The State of The Market - February 4, 2019 BTC: $3,452.79 (-0.74%) XRP: $0.301477 (-1.32%) ETH: $107.67 (-0.49%) The overall market was in slight downwards trajectory over the weekend, with nearly $700 Million lost in the last 24 hours. The total market cap went from $114.8 Billion to $113.6 Billion in the weekend. However, the crypto market is giving mixed signals, and it is not following Bitcoin right now. Also, BitTorrent's newly launched BTT token has been surging lately and is up by more than 50% from its original sale price. In other news, Zebpay crypto exchange unveiled that it is opening new offices in five European countries to increase its presence to 43 countries on the continent. The company currently operates out of Malta, and the expansion will avail it for users in Slovakia, Spain, Romania, Lithuania, and Liechtenstein. Also Euro Exim Bank, the first bank to officially adopt Ripple's XRP-powered xRapid, recently announced that it has successfully implemented the technology. According to Graham Bright, the head of compliance and operations, "Euro Exim Bank is now working closely with technical resources at Ripple, and has successfully implemented the xRapid system for customers requiring low-value remittances in currencies and jurisdictions typically subject to large exchange costs, costly liquidity and delivery time and acceptance issues." 1) Earlier today, the Philippines unveiled a new set of rules that would govern cryptocurrencies to protect and regulate investors effectively. The Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) approved the Digital Asset Token offering (DATO) regulations, which covers the buying of utility and security tokens. According to the announcement, CEZA would be the primary regulatory authority in this new framework, and the Asia Blockchain and Crypto Association (ABACA) would be an SRO that helps enact and enforce the new rules. According to CEZA administrator Raul Lambino, the entity seeks to provide a clear set of guidelines to encourage innovation while ensuring proper compliance within the crypto ecosystem. 2) IOST's ongoing election is in full swing. It is set to make its big move by launching its mainnet on February 25. To give the community a sense of ownership and participation, IOST has taken the approach of democratizing the nodes. There is zero technical barrier to entry. Candidates must attract at least 2.1 million votes, and so far 55 nodes have been elected. A total of 800 million votes have been cast in this process. Pittsburgh-based Sutler Ventures recently made it through and is currently ranked at the 8th position with 33.2 million votes. IOST Co-Founder Jimmy Zhong has set a goal of 100 Million users to use IOST's network, and he is confident of achieving it with their upcoming products. 3) The recent drama around QuadrigaCX showcases the poor practices followed by cryptocurrency exchanges. QuadrigaCX is Canada's largest exchange and its CEO Gerry Cotton controlled all the private keys. Last month, Cotton sadly passed away and along with him, the exchange has lost access to $190 million user funds. The crypto market is clearly not happy with the poor management of funds. CoinShares executive Meltem Demirors called the situation beyond horrifying and Binance CEO CZ tweeted that exchanges should never neglect security. The funds are likely gone forever, and the future of QuadrigaCX is uncertain. (VS)
