Blockchain Will be One of History’s Key Technologies

Chris Trew used a recent guest article on CryptoGlobe to explain why he believes Blockchain will be a major technology in the history of mankind. According to the Stratis CEO, blockchain will join technologies such as steam, electricity, and computers in making a great impact on society. The CEO opined that blockchain, alongside technologies like AI, VR, cloud computing and IoT will drive the next industrial revolution. Just like the use of steam and electricity for single purposes evolved to their application in various fields, blockchain technology will go beyond finance and be applied in areas such as the distribution of medicine, healthcare records and citizen identification and voting.

A Conversation with Tom Lee, Managing Partner & Head of Research at Fundstrat Global Advisors

The following transcript is taken from episode twenty two of The Scoop, The Block’s first podcast. Listen below and subscribe to The Scoop on Apple, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to podcasts. Email feedback and revision requests to podcast@theblockcrypto.com. This transcript has been edited for clarity and length. Tom Lee is one of the great luminaries of crypto and finance Twitter. The former chief equity analyst at JP Morgan made headlines during the bitcoin boom of 2017 with his calls that the cryptocurrency would soar to it's price target of $25,000. Fast forward to today; Lee isn't making anymore price targets on bitcoin but he still makes calls on the market -- leading Fundstrat, a market research shop covering both equities and crypto. On this episode of The Scoop, Lee shared his thoughts on how the research business has evolved over the last 2 decades, why he doesn't think bitcoin is a macro-hedge and the largest roadblocks keeping big investors out of the market. We hope you enjoy the episode. Frank Chaparro Ladies and gentlemen thank you so much for tuning into what is a very very special episode of The Scoop. I am joined of course by my co-host Ryan Todd -- first episode in a while. We're happy you're here and then our guest Tom Lee, managing partner and head of research at Fundstrat Global Advisors. He's a dear friend of mine and an accomplished Wall Street researcher with 25 years in the industry, known for his opining on the Bitcoin and crypto market but also has spent time and most of the business that he operates is involved in traditional U.S. equities and emerging markets. He also spent time at JP Morgan as a chief equity strategist from 2007 to 2014 and we're very happy to have him here to discuss things shaping both the bitcoin industry as well as some other macro trends that we're noticing here at The Block. Tom thank you so much. Tom Lee Glad to be here. Thank you for that intro. Frank Chaparro I think an interesting place to start since we're both in similar sorts of businesses. The Block is a research and news platform and you guys are doing equity in crypto research. I guess my first question is when we think about equity, research and analysis we often just think about price targets and what a given stock is going to trade at and in the Bitcoin world, what is bitcoin going to trade at? And you've had different theses around that for the past several years. How though are they actually different? Walk us through how those two businesses, last time we spoke over dinner I think you said Bitcoin is only really 10% of the business you guys run. How is the 90% different from 10%? Tom Lee They're very different businesses. My cumulative work experience is as primarily a fundamental research analyst. I started off covering wireless companies in 1993 and just for perspective in 1993 there were only 34 million cell phone users. Today there's four and a half billion. So it's an industry that's grown by about 1,000x since then. And the investment research business is really built around a couple of things, one is you have to develop like a thesis and sort of show some sort of how this tracks the true narrative and investors therefore as you sort of work with the thesis they want evidence to either support or refute your thesis. And so that's in their minds, the edge. You become their primary source and in the institutional business it's a pretty well-established world where there's active managers and funds and people own equities and their positions and then they have research providers and consultants that help them understand their positioning or calibrate their own views. Crypto is very different because number one, there aren't centralized organizations to deal with. So when you cover a company or you're covering a market there's already information so a company has investor relations and they publish data points like the equivalent of key performance metrics and industries will do surveys or they'll make announcements or they'll push towards legislation in an organized way. And I think crypto is really more like a hive mind community. There really isn't a centralized Mr. Bitcoin spokesperson and there's no Bitcoin company yet. And they're not publishing KPIs or talking to the trading desk. So it's a very different business and I think because of that it actually makes traditional institutions really leery of trying to enter the market because it's hard for them to believe that they can come in with an edge. Frank Chaparro Is it then your job to come up with some of those KPIs and present them as part of your thesis almost giving more information or doing more of the legwork than you would with providing a thesis around something like Ford stock or... Tom Lee I mean I'd say part of our business is trying to bridge that, trying to explain that if you're a traditional investor how do you develop a thesis around crypto and still sleep at night even though you'

Binance Launches Staking, Faces Sharp Criticism From Crypto Community

In a recent update, leading exchange Binance announced support for staking. However, the initiative received flack from the crypto community and has also been accused of going against the spirit of decentralization. Are Users in For Maximum Benefits? Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao (CZ) recently via a tweet announced support for staking. Some of the coins which can be staked on the platform include NEO (NEO/GAS), Ontology (ONT/ONG), Vechain (VEN/VTHO), Stellar (XLM), Komodo (KMD), Algorand (ALGO), Qtum (QTUM), & Stratis (STRAT). Staking is the process of holding funds in a cryptocurrency wallet to support the operations of a blockchain network. Source- Twitter The users will be able to earn stake rewards without having to become nodes. They simply need to keep a balance of crypto in their Binance account and get going! Additionally, Binance will support, in conjunction with project teams, additional promotional rewards to incentivize users to stake on Binance. These rewards will be distributed on a case-by-case basis. Also, Binance will not be charging a fee on any staking operations. Is Binance’s Staking Program Against the Spirit of Decentralization? His announcement garnered several responses from the crypto community. Dovey Wan, founding partner, Primitive Crypto considered it be a bad idea. Furthermore, she said that if funds are staked on the exchange it will not offer a value proposition for the users, as first, the exchange will eat up the funds. Secondly, they will be eaten by the custodial wallets. And, last but not the least, by PoW, whatever little will be left will be distributed to users staking their funds. Source- Twitter Calvin Ayre, founder of Ayre Group and CoinGeek said that CZ is scamming. He further shared a tweet which said that the idea behind Bitcoin is to minimize the harmful effect of staking. The tweet takes a dig at staking and said that it is simply not easy to make money doing nothing and the massive expansion on the Binance platform goes against decentralization and the original bitcoin whitepaper’s propositions. Source- Twitter Interestingly, crypto twitter seemed to agree with Dovey Wan and Calvin Ayre. A crypto user with handle ” ChainLinkBull” said that everything will be gone if centralized, thus, resonating with Wan’s claims that users will be at the losing end. Source- Twitter Others users also expressed similar sentiments about Binance staking being against the principle of decentralization. Source: Twitter Binance Enables Deposits and Withdrawals for Interoperable Tokens Today, Binance announced support for withdrawing and supporting interoperable tokens. The exchange has upgraded its deposit and withdrawal functions so that users can now more freely deposit and withdraw interoperable tokens to their preferred network via the web interface. Source- Twitter The list of supported interoperable tokens include - USDT: ERC20, OMNI PHB: NEP5, BEP2 ANKR: ERC20, BEP2 ARN: ERC20, BEP2 BCPT: ERC20, BEP2 CHZ: ERC20, BEP2 COS: ERC20, BEP2 DUSK: ERC20, BEP2 FTM: ERC20, BEP2 GTO: ERC20, BEP2 MITH: ERC20, BEP2 TOMO: TOMO, BEP2 It will be interesting to note how Binance reacts to all controversies around its massive expansion.

MediConnect Prescribes Blockchain For Pharmaceutical Industry

Supply chain blockchains aren’t just for tracking your organic vegetables. MediConnect, a new project building a blockchain-based solution to trace and manage prescription medication, has successfully completed the workflow of its Proof of Concept and has begun integrating with online pharmacies. The blockchain project will provide a platform on which prescription medication can be tracked from manufacturer to patient, while focusing on the intermediate act of being prescribed by medical professionals. The company reportedly seeks to solve the issue of excessive prescription drug use in the UK, and it hopes that its upcoming blockchain platform will help towards that. The workflow was developed for a future integration with UK Meds, an online pharmacy which fills thousands of prescriptions per day, to approximately 400,000 users through its website. MediConnect has already begun the implementation in the PoC platform, which would have UK Meds integrating all its existing processes into one cohesive platform, tracing what it sells and preventing the misuse of prescription drugs. Dexter Blackstock, the CEO of MediConnect, explained the future plans of the company. “The next step is to complete the integration of UK Meds to our proof-of-concept platform and complete a pilot scheme in 2020,” he explains. “The pilot scheme will include up to 10 online pharmacies and bring to life our goal of solving the growing issue of overuse of prescription medication, which will help protect the health of patients while reducing costs for the NHS.” The defined workflow is an important step forward for MediConnect, which establishes a foundation and methodology for finalizing the PoC. Parameters were rigorously tested by developers and created thanks to extensive consultation with pharmaceutical industry experts. The team is now ready to continue building the platform, set to progress to a pilot scheme with up to ten online pharmacies in 2020. MediConnect is being developed by Stratis Group Ltd, building a Stratis-based blockchain solution. Its MEDI token will be used to handle transactions and value on the platform, and it is on sale in an ICO until September 30. Previously, the company obtained the blessing from the Ugandan government to curtail counterfeit drugs in the country.

Microsoft On-Chain: How The Tech Giant Is Building On Blockchain

This week, NEO joined Microsoft’s .NET Foundation, serving as a major asset to Microsoft’s blockchain efforts. Following the integration, NEO willbe able to introduce a new set of tools for Microsoft Visual Studio, making it easier for mainstream developers to create NEO dApps. This news comes just months after NEO expressed interest in the .NET stack. However, this isn’t Microsoft’s first tango on the blockchain. Over the past few years, Microsoft has allowed developers to build, test, and deploy apps through its Azure service, which provides access to popular chains like Ethereum, Quorum, and Corda, as well as obscure platforms like SIMBA Chain, Rootstock, Stratis, and more. Microsoft’s most frequent collaborator, though, is JPMorgan. This year, Microsoft introduced Quorum as Azure’s first fully managed blockchain, offering a full blockchain network, not just a development tool. Microsoft also uses Quorum in-house to manage XBOX royalties. A strategic partnership is ongoing, so there may be more to come. But Wait, There’s More Microsoft’s blockchain efforts don’t stop there: the company is also a member of several blockchain groups, such as the Hyperledger Foundation, the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance, and the Token Taxonomy Initiative. Microsoft hasn’t produced much in the way of products with these groups — rather, it is contributing to blockchain standards. On top of that, Microsoft is also pouring funding into blockchain projects. The company has already incubated ION, a Bitcoin-based decentralized identity system, covering the costs of the project through its Identity Division. Microsoft has also contributed funds to events like the Ethereal Virtual Hackathon, which took place this April during the Ethereal Summit. Meanwhile, Microsoft Research’s blockchain division has contributed to a handful of research papers over the years. In fact, Microsoft Research was responsible for Microsoft’s first foray into blockchain: in 2012, the group published “On Blockchain and Red Balloons” with Cornell, describing a Bitcoin information propagation system. Finally, casual crypto users might be interested to know that Microsoft accepts Bitcoin in its stores...sort of. You can deposit Bitcoin into your account and receive credit in return. This might not satisfy sticklers for decentralization, but the store is more Bitcoin-friendly than the iOS Store and Google Play, which don’t accept Bitcoin at all. Are Microsoft’s Blockchain Efforts Overrated? Blockchain endeavors are sometimes exaggerated in the media, and Microsoft is no exception. A textbook example of this occurred in 2017, when a Microsoft rep mentioned a partnership with IOTA before both companies denied it. Although Microsoft was indeed participating in IOTA’s IoT marketplace, there was no formal partnership. Likewise, Microsoft may never live down Bill Gates’ attacks on Bitcoin: he has called it a “greater fool” investment and accused it of causing deaths by facilitating fentanyl sales. Gates is now only minimally involved in Microsoft, and current reps have made more positive comments: some have even said that blockchain is “at a tipping point.” Despite a few disappointments, Microsoft’s blockchain efforts make it one of the most pro-blockchain companies ever. Ultimately, the company must change with the times: other tech giants like IBM and Amazon have made their own blockchain breakthroughs, while Microsoft is just getting started.

‘New-Tech’ Crypto Assets To Kickstart Next Altseason

The current state of the altcoin market is woeful, to say the least. The majority of crypto assets are still down over 80% from last year’s all-time highs and most of them are looking to remain there for a while longer. The bottom line is that many are destined to die and will get usurped by superior tech. Calamitous Crypto Coins Back in 2017 altcoin fever was largely driven by FOMO, hype and celebrity shills. Traders with no experience could literally throw a dart at a board of altcoins and whatever it hit would inevitably surge. Crypto tokens such as Verge (XVG) were pumped by the likes of John McAfee sending them to the moon and everyone wanted a piece of that pie. Fast forward two years to 2019 and the scene is totally different. Most of those high flying altcoins have dumped almost everything and have returned to pre-pump prices. The teams also appeared to have sold out on many of them with community updates dwindling. With the ICO market getting stomped on by US regulators, there is little chance for new projects to engage in token sales without paying the top exchanges such as Binance to promote them. Many are still wary and healing burnt fingers from the previous ICO boom so are unlikely to jump into anything new just yet. Crypto analyst and trader Josh Rager reckons the next altcoin boom will come from new tech that has yet to hit the exchanges. “The next altcoin boom will be led by new-tech assets not available on exchanges yet. My focus in the future of trading altcoins will be more on these types of assets and less about majority of current altcoins,” The next altcoin boom will be led by new-tech assets not available on exchanges yet$HBAR, $NU, $DOT, and more My focus in the future of trading altcoins will be more on these types of assets and less about majority of current altcoins Especially altcoins out of top 200 — Josh Rager (@Josh_Rager) September 4, 2019 This may well be the case as many of the altcoins that were in the top twenty this time two years ago have faded into obscurity. Examples include NEM, OmiseGO, Qtum, Lisk, Stratis, and Waves. That is not to say that development has halted, rather investments appear to have dried up as token prices plummeted. Some high cap altcoins have had a lot of bad press recently such as Ripple dumping XRP, Bitcoin Cash network attacks, and EOS centralization concerns, which do not help matters. On the Bright Side It is not all doom and gloom in crypto land and calls for alt season are resuming as bitcoin dominance appears to be hitting resistance just above 70%. ‘Welson Trader’ is one that thinks altcoins will make some kind of recovery as BTC grinds higher over the coming months. In the past, when $BTC rises in price, the dollar value of Altcoins increases with it. This means that I am STILL bullish on Alt-coins. I think many of them will continue to rise as #Bitcoin does over the next month.#Altcoins #Bullish #Cryptocurrency #Marketcap #Growth pic.twitter.com/rhqhD9x1g0 — Welson (@CryptoWelson) September 4, 2019 At the moment most crypto assets are in the red again as bitcoin consolidates around $10,600 today. Will ‘current’ altcoins ever make a real recovery? Add your thoughts below.

Poloniex Drops More Crypto Pairs as Altcoins Become Apparitions

Altcoin fervor is definitely at a low, so much so that crypto exchange Poloniex has dropped 23 pairs citing low volume. Many of the pairs that were popular in 2017 and during the ICO boom have fallen out of favour, as altcoins in general remain at rock bottom prices. Crypto Pairs Axed According to Coinmarketcap.com the US based exchange has 124 pairs. Around 20 of them, or 16%, have less than a thousand dollars in daily volume so it appears to be these that have been targeted for termination. In a tweet yesterday the exchange stated; We will be removing 23 trading pairs on August 16, 2019, due to low volume. Note that each asset will continue to be independently tradable. We will be removing 23 trading pairs on August 16, 2019, due to low volume. Note that each asset will continue to be independently tradable. — Poloniex Exchange (@Poloniex) August 15, 2019 Around half of the pairs listed are in ETH, six are XMR pairings and the rest are stablecoin pairs for various obscure altcoins. Those include Loom Network/USDT which has had $50 traded in the past 24 hours, Status/USDT with just $157 traded, Bancor/USDT trading only $75 per day, FOAM/USDC, and the worst performing pair Khyber Network/USDT. Some of the ETH pairs were once popular altcoins with high volumes such as OmiseGO, Lisk, Civic, Golem, Decentraland, Qtum, GAS and Steem. After bitcoin and stablecoins, the exchange’s top Ethereum pair is Zcash which only has $30,000 daily volume itself. All of the Monero pairs aside from BTC and stablecoins will be dropped due to dwindling volumes. It could just be a case of falling volume on that particular exchange since the same pairs on Binance are doing substantially better. Altcoin Apparitions Many of yesteryear’s crypto darlings are now descending into the realms of altcoin apparitions as very little movements above their winter lows have been made. Compared with August 2017 the altcoin scene looks very different today. Many have just fallen off the digital cliff in terms of token price regardless of any further developments on the projects by respective teams. Two years ago this month, IOTA was the fifth largest altcoin by market cap, priced at $0.94 with $2.6 billion. Today it is struggling to stay in the top twenty and is down 75%. Likewise with NEM, the sixth largest crypto asset back then, but now lulling around 22nd with less than $500k market cap. Other previous crypto favorites of times gone by include NEO, Ethereum Classic, OmiseGO, BitConnect (now deceased), Qtum, Stratis, Waves, TenX and Lisk. Today the majority of them are still down as much as 90% from their all-time highs. With very little signs of life on altcoin markets this is unlikely to change for some time yet. Will altcoins ever get resurrected again?

Tezos Enjoys Another Major Platform Listing, Will Binance Follow Suit?

Today, the Tezos token, XTZ, has enjoyed another listing on a major trading/investment platform. eToro, which currently boasts more than 11 million registered users, has now made XTZ available to buy, sell, and trade. This news comes just a week after Coinbase Pro announced that it would list XTZ. XTZ is the 16th crypto asset to be made available on eToro. It joins Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, XRP, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Dash, NEO, Stellar, EOS, Cardano, IOTA, BNB, TRON, and ZCASH on the platform. Yoni Assia, the CEO, and co-founder at eToro, said that “Tezos is making great progress.” He added that banks were choosing the Tezos blockchain for security token offerings worth more than $1 billion. Assia explained that eToro was excited to list coins like XTZ for retail traders at this time when we see financial institutions increasingly move into crypto. eToro sets itself apart as an investment platform by offering both traditional assets like commodities, forex, and stocks, as well as new disruptive assets like cryptocurrencies. Assia says that eToro aims to make financial markets accessible for everyone and to add XTZ and other crypto assets are part of that mission. Will Tezos Be Listed on Binance? Tezos is currently enjoying a streak of listings on major platforms, including on eToro and Coinbase Pro, where XTZ has started trading today. Huobi Wallet also announced that it would support XTZ and become a Tezos baker, allowing its users to easily ‘bake’ (similar to staking) their coins to earn passive income. However, XTZ is yet to be listed on Binance, and with its success elsewhere, many are expecting Binance to follow suit at some point. Upon news of the Coinbase Pro listing, Tiffany Hayden, a prominent figure within the crypto community, used Twitter to ask Binance’s CEO when this may happen. Changpeng Zhao is yet to reply. @cz_binance, when Tezos? #XTZ — Tiffany Hayden (@haydentiff) August 2, 2019 However, what’s clear is that Binance has been steadily adding “hassle-free” staking on many coins, and sees value in doing so. To receive staking rewards, all users need to do is hold the supported coins in their Binance wallets. So far, Binance supports staking and rewards for QTUM, ALGO, KMD, STRAT, XLM, TRX, VET, ONT, and NEO. Zhao promoted the simplicity of staking at Binance recently in a tweet: Staking made simple @binance. You don't have to do anything. Just #hodl. https://t.co/SBKD9rgbmw — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) August 2, 2019 Binance is known to listen to its users, recently adding margin trading, which was a highly requested feature. Binance is also listing new coins on a regular basis. So, listing Tezos with hassle-free staking would undoubtedly appeal to many of its users, as well as tempt many XTZ holders to send their coins to Binance.

China Publishes New Rankings of 37 Crypto Projects

China’s Center for Information and Industry Development has published its latest crypto rankings. Thirty-seven projects have been evaluated and ranked overall as well as in three separate categories. Some favorites have changed and two projects have been added to the previous list of projects ranked. Also read: G20 Leaders Issue Declaration on Crypto Assets - A Look at Their Commitments The 13th Update of Crypto Rankings The Center for Information and Industry Development (CCID), under China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, released the 13th update of its crypto project rankings Tuesday. The total number of projects ranked has grown to 37, with two projects added since the last rankings in May. In addition to the overall ranking, the CCID evaluated all 37 projects based on their basic technology, applicability, and creativity. EOS remains at the top of the overall ranking, followed by Ethereum and then TRON. The center started ranking TRON in February, debuting it at number two overall. However, in the latest ranking, TRON dropped to third place, replaced by Ethereum. BTC now ranks 11th, up one place from May. BCH has also improved, currently occupying the 26th spot overall, up from the 29th place previously. Two Projects Added Two other public chains have been added to the previous list of projects ranked — Cosmos and Zilliqa. The former is “an ecosystem of blockchains that can scale and interoperate with each other,” the project’s website details. “Before Cosmos, blockchains were siloed and unable to communicate with each other. They were hard to build and could only handle a small amount of transactions per second. Cosmos solves these problems with a new technical vision.” Cosmos debuts at number 10 in the overall CCID ranking, just below STEEM and above Bitcoin. The latter proposes “Transaction sharding to improve transaction performance,” the CCID described. “In addition, Zilliqa uses the new smart contract language Scilla to prevent security vulnerabilities that often occur in Solidity, making it easier to perform formal verification.” This project debuts at number 24 in the CCID overall ranking, just below Stratis and above Tezos. Evaluation Model The CCID explained Tuesday that the evaluation model used has not changed and the projects are still being evaluated overall as well as in three other areas: Basic Technology, Applicability and Creativity. The first sub-index, Basic Technology, mainly evaluates the technical realization level of the public chain, the center detailed, adding that it mainly inspects areas such as function, performance, safety and decentralization of the public chain. This sub-index accounts for 65% of the total index. “The average of the overall underlying technology index has slightly decreased from the previous period,” the CCID revealed. The second sub-index, Applicability, mainly evaluates the comprehensive level of public chain support for practical applications, the center described, adding that this sub-index accounts for 20% of the total index. Four key aspects are examined for this assessment: “node deployment, wallet application, development support and application implementation.” The center noted that “Compared with the previous list, the top five of the applied indicators list did not change.” The third sub-index, Creativity, mainly examines the continuous innovation of the public chain. According to the center, for this index, the projects were evaluated based on factors such as the number of developers, how recently and often the code is updated, and which other projects have influenced the code. This sub-index accounts for 15% of the total index. How China Started Crypto Rankings The CCID describes itself as “a first-class scientific research institution directly under the administration of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China.” The first crypto ranking was published in May last year. A week before its release, on May 11, the center held a symposium on public blockchain technology assessment in Beijing and unveiled the latest progress of the crypto project assessment work carried out by the CCID (Qingdao) blockchain research institute, an entity established by the center. It added that the crypto ranking and evaluation work was done in collaboration with multiple parties such as the CCID think tank and the China Software Evaluation Center. “The result of this assessment will allow the CCID group to provide better technical consulting services for government agencies, business enterprises, research institutes, and technology developers,” the center clarified. When the first ranking was unveiled to the public, Quartz wrote: “Today (May 17), the China Center for Information Industry Development (CCID), a research unit under the country’s industrial ministry, officially launched its monthly ratings index on 28 crypto coins and the blockchains behind them.” The publication elaborated, “The CCID announced the initiativ
