Have All ICOs Sold Out? A Look At The Altcoin Survivors

The initial coin offering frenzy took over a young and inexperienced crypto market in 2017. People were putting in a large amount of money in projects that had no legal, banking or regulatory approvals. Releasing a mere whitepaper and a website could ensure entrepreneurs easy access to capital. But whether they would release their product - or not - remained a different mystery altogether. Big Bucks for Blockchain Startups Since the ICO boom, Forbes reported, over 800 blockchain projects have raised around $20 billion via the sale of their bitcoin-like own tokens. But how much of this money has survived or have been put to use has little-to-no evidence. MobileGo, for instance, raised a whopping $53 million in tokenized crowdfunding to build a video betting and e-sport platform. The project has reportedly removed the cryptocurrency aspects from its nucleus altogether. And the project founders, Sergey and Maxim Sholom, have not conducted any independent audit yet to show where the $53 million has gone. Losses incurred from the projects like MobileGo somewhat equal many small ICO projects that have abandoned their development plans. According to Deadcoins, a website that indexes non-functional coins, there are over 1,000 ICOs that have already bitten the dust. Though not all the projects were failures. Many among the listed projects, including Enigma and CoinDash, reported hacks, while others like Onecoin or Paycoin were outright scams. But, there are still a few ICOs that have survived the day and are developing their blockchain projects actively. Moreover, the return on investments out of these projects have outperformed expectations, validating that not all is bad in the world of cryptos and ICOs. The NXT project came before the ICO boom. Launched in 2013 by an anonymous developer, the blockchain project held the sale of its NXT tokens in September 2013 to develop a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. It managed to raise about $16,800 worth of Bitcoin at a per NXT value of $0.0000168. The NXT/USD rate at the time of this writing is $0.064521, according to CoinMarketCap.com. That marks a 383953.58 percent return off each NXT token. NXT also stuck to its path to developing a blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platform, eventually building an active community of developers. In light to the recent developments in the public ledger space, NXT has the potential to deliver, which can be confirmed by its sustainability in the market. The project that kick-started the ICO frenzy in the first place, Ethereum started a new wave of decentralized applications and smart contract developments on the top its open-source distributed ledger platform. The project had its ICO round in mid-2o14, in which it raised $16 millions after selling 11.9 million Ether tokens at a price of $0.311 per unit. At press time, the same token costs around $200. That is 64,209 percent more than the initial value. Many other ICO projects that survived the FUD with active development and impeccable accountability include NEO, a digital asset ownership platform originally known as Antshares, Spectrecoin, a privacy-centric digital currency network, and Stratis, an enterprise-grade BaaS platform. Ark, Stroj, Lisk, EOS, and the list continues. The key takeaway is that the projects that vastly focus on offering BaaS, privacy, and decentralization fared better. The ICO industry, as a whole, is surviving with the survival of good projects. Image from Shutterstock The post Have All ICOs Sold Out? A Look At The Altcoin Survivors appeared first on NewsBTC.

Crypto Markets Move Again With a 6 Billion Dollar Dump

FOMO Moments The bears have awoken; Altcoins are dumping, only Maker, Nxt and Waltonchain survive. We have been waiting for some movement on crypto markets and it has finally arrived. Unfortunately in the wrong direction, however, and another dump has seen $6 billion shaved off cryptocurrencies as they plummet back towards $200 billion total capitalization. Bitcoin finally broke down and could not hold its support level resulting in a $150, or 2.4%, dive down to $6,340. The longer term consolidating channel is still intact providing BTC stays above $6,000 which seems likely at the moment. Ethereum followed suit and has lost 3.8% on the day dropping to $197. Altcoins, like the digital lemmings that they are, all jumped off the cliff in hot pursuit and the boards are red this morning in Asia. Taking the biggest hit has been Litecoin shedding 6% to fall below $50 for the first time since September 2017. Bitcoin Cash, EOS and Cardano have all lost between 4-5 percent at the moment and the rest are not far behind. The further down the chart we look, the greater the losses. In the top twenty Tron, Iota, Neo, Ethereum Classic, and Zcash have all dropped over 5% on the day. There is only one altcoin in the top fifty surviving the rout at the moment and that is Maker, posting a gain of 2.3% to trade at $628. There are no major pumps occurring but a couple of altcoins are surviving in the top one hundred at the moment. Nxt, Waltonchain and DigixDAO are all up 3-4 percent at the moment as their brethren suffers. The biggest losers over the past 24 hours are Revain, Komodo, Dentacoin, and Stratis dumping 9-11 percent overnight. Total crypto market capitalization has lost almost 3%, or $6 billion, since yesterday and is currently at $203 billion. Those that wanted the volatility back have got it, the bears are roaring again in crypto land. Altcoins have taken most of the brunt of the purge and Bitcoin dominance has crept back over 54%. The three month chart still looks flatter than a squished pumpkin. 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.

Binance CEO Launches Blockchain Platform For Charity At The UN, And Bakkt’s BTC Futures Could Launch Next Week

The State of The Market — October 25, 2018 BTC: $6,481.76 (-0.35%) ETH: $203.11 (-0.76%) XRP: $0.45722 (-0.85%) The crypto winter continues, as all major cryptocurrencies were stable today. The top five cryptocurrencies changed by less than 1% in the last 24 hours. While Bitcoin is slightly below $6,500, Ethereum still maintains its price above $200. The total market cap has also not moved much. It went down from $209.8 Billion to $209.2 Billion. In other news, Japanese technology giant Sony has revealed a cryptocurrency hardware wallet. The device utilizes IC smart card technology that is popular in Japan. Also, Blockchain platform Stratis has become a Microsoft Silver Partner, giving the startup access to the tech giant’s coveted “marketing and development resources” that are reserved for partner relationships. Stratis CEO and Founder Chris Trew said in a statement that the “partnership is a natural next step for Stratis” as the “only cryptocurrency with full nodes built from the ground up in C#.” 1) Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao unveiled a Blockchain platform at the UN for tracking charitable giving. He launched it at the World Investment Forum 2018 today, a UN conference on trade and development. The blockchain-fueled platform for tracking charitable donations will let people see how their donated funds are being directed. “With better transparency, we can achieve 100 times more results,” said CZ. Tron Founder Justin Sun was there too, tweeting that it was an “honor to be at the heart of the United Nations and witness the innovations of Binance and Tron Foundation.” Sun recently donated $3 million to Binance’s Blockchain Charity Foundation. 2) According to tech outlet The Block, an anonymous source revealed that Intercontinental Exchange’s (ICE) Bakkt cryptocurrency platform could get approval to launch its physically-delivered Bitcoin (BTC) futures product from U.S. regulators next week. NYSE’s parent company ICE is creating Bakkt as the regulated ecosystem for institutional investors looking to get crypto exposure. Bakkt could start offering its Bitcoin futures product to its customers as soon as it receives its approval. CBOE and CME launched their non-physical Bitcoin futures late last year. 3) ASX Limited, Australia’s leading market operator, has announced that it is planning to roll out blockchain technology for settlements in 2021. The stock exchange now wants to replace its Clearing House Electronic Subregister System (CHESS) with a more innovative, decentralized and digitized blockchain technology. The blockchain platform is expected to bring on board innovation that will yield more efficiency. (VS)

Stratis Price Eyes $2 Following Microsoft Certification Announcement

It has been a while since people actively discussed the price of Stratis. Although this blockchain project has a lot of potential in its own right, the bearish pressure throughout 2018 has caused a dip in overall interest. Even so, the new Microsoft certification will elevate the Stratis price to new levels, and a current price push is already shaping up rather nicely. Stratis Price Momentum Intensifies Quickly Despite an initial spell of market momentum in mid-2017, the Stratis project has been unable to maintain traders’ attention for an extended period of time. That it situation is slowly coming to change as of right now, albeit there is still a long way to go prior to hitting $18 again. Its current value of $1.69 is more than fair, although it seems this price can rise to $2 in a few days or weeks. Over these past 24 hours, things have gotten rather interesting for Stratis holders. More specifically, there is an 9% uptrend in the USD department, and a similar uptrend in the BTC department. It is not uncommon for altcoins to rise against Bitcoin right now, although such steep gains are not all that common. With $17.211m in volume, it seems that uptrend can be sustained with some ease. The main reason so many people are paying attention to Stratis right now is because of the new Microsoft certification. Stratis is an official certified partner of Microsoft right now, which will elevate this project to a whole new level moving forward. It also confirms Microsoft sees merit in this project’s blockchain-oriented approach. #Stratis (#STRAT) #Certified #Microsoft #ISV - #20% #Surge https://t.co/UrE0D3kRCr #amazonwebservices — Barron Nel (@Barron_Nel) October 25, 2018 This new announcement has already triggered a very bullish pattern for the STRAT/BTC pair, according to The Trader FX. It is possible this is only the beginning of an extended Stratis price uptrend, albeit it remains to be seen if that will indeed be the case moving forward. Bitcoin is still stuck in sideways momentum, and it can easily drag all altcoins with it in quick succession. #STRATBTC starts a bullish trend as #STRAT blockchain platform gets certified as Microsoft Partner https://t.co/l0nOg7pBEk #Crypto #cryptotrading #cryptocurrency — The Trader FX (@TheTraderFX) October 25, 2018 A similar sentiment is echoed by Twitter user “Godfather”. He also notes how the Microsoft announcement is making a big impact as of right now, and a massive amount of volume is being added to the order books on the Binance exchange. That is always pretty interesting to keep an eye on in this day and age, as Binance is widely considered to be the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the industry. $STRAT UPDATE: 50EMA strikes again! The Microsoft announcement is huge news. Insane volume.#STRAT #Stratis $alts pic.twitter.com/fzxhMVQbgm — Godfather (@GodfatherCrypto) October 25, 2018 As is always the case in the cryptocurrency world, things can change in the blink of an eye. The current positive momentum associated with Stratis is promising, although there may be a reversal in the next few hours as well. No market has been able to sustain its gains for a very long time, especially where altcoins are concerned. If Stratis can success, however, a push to $2 is not out of the question by any means.

In which case, upon making the private sidechains real, the block-security is no issue to be worried about as they are kept safe and maintained on the main sidechain. Turning back to the present, the Stratis Group Ltd got their hands on the ISV Silver Partner certification which will be a tremendous hoist and game changer for the team as Microsoft delivers major support for their partners to resources for further advancement and marketing. Via the team up, the application which Stratis has running on MS cloud marketplace [Azire MP] will find their way to the user/costumer. Per time of writing, the pair STRAT/USD is in the green at just below 20.00% for the last day reaching the $1.80 mark for the first time since beginning of September.

A Year After Launch, BTCPay Has Grown Larger Than Its Creator Expected

First hinting at his project in a reply to a BitPay tweet on August 2017, Nicolas Dorier boldly claimed that BTCPay would make one of crypto’s most popular payment processors obsolete. In an r/Bitcoin post two months later, he clarified that his brainchild isn’t meant to “take the place of BitPay.” Rather, BTCPay is poised as a new and improved alternative, a decentralized stand-in for merchants who wanted an easier way to accept bitcoin. A year later, the project has grown larger than Dorier anticipated. With a community of open-source developers at its back and growing demand from a faithful user base, the payment processor has expanded its support past bitcoin and has integrated with many of the web’s most popular point-of-sale (PoS) plug-ins. It has become a meteoric success. But for what started out as a hobbyist’s side project, this success has, in some respects, become unwieldy.A Fork in Response to a Fork Dorier launched BTCPay at a time when a contentious proposed Bitcoin hard fork was sending tremors through the community. BitPay’s approach to this hotly contested fork, Dorier told Bitcoin Magazine, was part of the reasoning behind BTCPay’s creation.“BTCPay was created when BitPay was trying to force all their merchants to use another altcoin instead of Bitcoin. The priority for BTCPay was to make sure that all software written to work on BitPay will work on BTCPay with minimal (or no) change.”The “altcoin” Dorier refers to is B2X, the unsubstantiated product of the failed Segwit2x hard fork. A controversial proposal at the time, the protocol change intended to double Bitcoin’s block weight limit. While proponents saw this as a necessary scaling solution, opponents argued it would open up security vulnerabilities, and many of these same opponents distrusted the invite-only, conspiratorial meeting that gave birth to the planned fork.Incidentally, the fork never really made it off the ground. Still, a number of Bitcoin-related companies around the world supported it, and BitPay was part of a not-inconsequential list of companies that said they would treat Segwit2x as Bitcoin, given enough community consensus.Dorier was not a fan. A part of the NO2X movement himself, the developer decided to create BTCPay in the face of what he viewed as an uneven, centralized decision in BitPay’s commitment to B2X. His alternative in BTCPay is meant to offer the convenience of BitPay’s payment processor API without the counterparty risk or centralized custody inherent in its parent technology. To create this alternative, Dorier simply forked BitPay’s open source code.“Redeveloping all of it would have consumed lot's of my time. By using the same API shape as BitPay, I can basically fork their open source work and easily make it work on BTCPay.”With BTCPay, users never relinquish control over their private keys, and they can even host their own node to buttress the platform’s services. As Dorier put it, this opens up the potential for “new things becoming easily possible,” such as integrating the Lightning Network or atomic swaps.With a New Platform, New Services (and Coins)For those who are less technologically savvy, BTCPay won’t leave them behind.Node hosting on Microsoft's Azure provides 1-click deployment for the average merchant, who can pay a third party to host a BTCPay node on their behalf. Dorier stated that this node hosting service is the most popular and oldest available, though a rising competitor is cutting into its dominance. Luna Node is gaining traction among BTCPay’s merchants, mainly because it is cheaper to host on the service ($10/month as opposed to $60/month for Azure). On top of this cost reduction, it also accepts bitcoin as a form of payment and has a more intuitive setup wizard, Dorier claims.On the topic of merchants, BTCPay’s most integrated plugins are Drupal, WooCommerce, Magento and PrestaShop. Dorier told us that Shopify “is the most asked [for],” though he said that it’s difficult to “get a foot in the door” with them unless you’re a big company.For those merchants that leverage BTCPay, they have access to more payment options than the platform’s counterpart in BitPay. Though BTCPay is “mainly focused on Bitcoin,” as Dorier put it, community developers have also added support for litecoin, dash, dogecoin, monacoin, bitcoin gold, feathercoin, groestlcoin, viacoin and polis. Dorier believes that there is enough interest for stratis, monero and ether to see their own support as well, though he emphasized that “the burden of integration is in the hands of the altcoin communities,” as he himself will not go out of his way to add them.With Growth, Growing Pains and LimitationsEven with its fast-growing success, BTCPay has its tradeoffs and limitations.One of these is lack of a fiat on-ramp. One benefit of BitPay’s centralization and custodial services is that it can support seamless crypto-to-fiat conversions. For a decentralized BTCPay, this feature has been markedly absent from its

Bitcoin and Crypto Arbitrage Trading Guide For Beginners

In recent weeks Bitcoin’s price has been quite rough and unpredictable. It has been a particularly difficult time for people involved in the cryptocurrency market as we’ve watched the value of our investment fall from the peak when we bought the currency. So, what strategy to choose for difficult times? Hold or try to trade “catching falling knives”? Or maybe try to play with alternative coins? Or maybe sell and come to terms with the loss? HODL Seems Safe The safest method appears to be holding (or HODLing). That is where the crypto-investor holds a cryptocurrency for a long time. Holding requires patience, and unfortunately, you have to wait years to get a profit. People who have held Bitcoin for several years are the biggest winners, and many people were jealous of their profits. After all, who wouldn’t want several thousand Bitcoins that were bought years ago for 50 cents, a dollar or even $100 each? How about if we bought BTC when its price was $8,000, $9,000 or even $15,000 a coin, and ever since the beginning of 2018, the value of our investment has fallen every day? Will the rate return to this level someday? Will you earn 10%, 100% or even 1000%? Nobody knows whether the investment will pay for itself or we lose more over a few and finally say, I could have sold in 2018 with a smaller loss”. As I mean, holding requires a lot of patience. Trading Could be too Risky Trading seems to be the solution, namely the strategy of “catching a falling knife” or hunting for flash crashes. However, trading is extremely risky and is accompanied by a massive amount of stress, and “catching falling knives,” as the name suggests, is a very dangerous game because you can cut yourself badly. It’s not everyone who can stand the mental pressure, and also say “stop” at the right time, while waiting for a price bounce. In theory, the strategy is quite simple. However, when it comes to practice, we sell our BTC when a series of sales start, buy back at a lower price, then sell on a delicate bounce and buy at the bottom, lowering the exit point. After a few such transactions, we can see how beautifully the amount of BTC in our wallet grows, although it does not necessarily result in turning the value of the investments into fiat. In theory, we are winning because when the price returns to the previous levels, we have more BTC than before, so, theoretically, we are on a huge plus. However, as I mentioned earlier, in practice things don’t always pan out. Very often, several, such successful transactions make us optimistic, until our the last transaction when we sell our BTC at the lowest exchange rate, and then suddenly there is a quick and robust bounce, and before we even realize that it is not a temporary correction it is in a declining trend, its already reversing, and it is too late. The effect is that when we buy back our BTC, it turns out that we have less than we started with. This causes additional stress, and as a result, many people make a series of mistakes trying to compensate for their loss, losing even more of their accumulated capital. Let’s Trade Altcoins Instead So what can we do? Well, the behavior of the cryptocurrency market, in theory, is very predictable. When Bitcoin’s price begins to “go down,” all of the alternative coins lose a lot more when compared to BTC. When the exchange rate of the king of the cryptocurrency starts to bounce and stabilize, the alternative coins price start to climb sharply. In theory, it’s easy to make money. The problem is that you need to know which currency to pick and when to enter. Unfortunately, this already requires a lot of experience, market knowledge, patience, and nerves of steel. Is there any way out of this situation? One that does not involve a long and uncertain wait or risk of severe losses and nerves? Meet Crypto Arbitrage Yes, the solution is arbitrage on the cryptocurrency exchanges. That means using the price differences of the same cryptocurrency on various exchanges. Arbitrage is the best strategy for trading when there are so many moves on the market. Significant price differences arise for the same cryptocurrency on multiple exchanges. There are over 220 different cryptocurrency exchanges on the market. These exchanges are not connected, which is why the same cryptocurrency may have completely different prices on different exchanges. These differences are not huge, because they mainly depend on the demand, supply, and volume on a given exchange. Arbitrage on Augur (REP). Same token, 4% difference. Source: Coinmarketcap Exchange Differences The norm is differences ranging from 3% to 5% though in extreme cases, even 40% or 50%. Such price differences allow you to generate quite a big profit with a relatively low risk, low stress, and most importantly no advanced market knowledge is required. All you need is the ability to find an offer and transfer funds from one exchange to another. The timing is also critical! In the case of arbitrage, we do not have t

Ethereum Price Analysis: Fundstrat Global Head of Research Calls Ethereum Futures 'a Bad Idea to Invest'

Among the strong ETH sellers, bulls are slowly coming back in. At the current price ($291 as at 2:30 AM UTC), ETH is up by 4 percent. It is recovering from the lowest price that it hit during the week of August 19th. However, traders should act with caution and only initiate longs only when the prices hit $330, according to Newsbtc.com analysis. According to the current soaring BTC price, Ethereum might be able to climb up and break the $330 resistance.
