The Blockchain Startups You Need To Hear About

It’s safe to say that the blockchain industry is thriving at the moment. Whilst this is a good thing, it does make it very hard for us to pick out promising blockchain ideas that are calling out for our investment. Overall, the industry is a maze of startups, new ideas and growing innovations. It’s exciting to be a part of, and it’s an industry that is going to be cooking for many, many years to come. American Inno have recently published an article that highlights their 11 most exciting blockchain startups, across 11 different cities, we want to dive into this to pick out a few of our favourites. Blockchain technology does not just mean cryptocurrency, therefore some of the mentioned projects are focusing on many other aspects of blockchain technology. Remember that this is opinion based and we are by no means telling you to invest in these projects, at the very least though, it’s exciting to explore. According to American Inno: “Blockchain startups have raised nearly $4 billion in VC in 2018 to date, a 280% increase from last year’s record pull. And blockchain extends way beyond the crypto space, infiltrating a variety of industries from healthcare to media. To shine a spotlight on the blockchain innovation that’s happening across the Inno network, we asked our writers to offer up a local startup in this space that’s caught their eye.” Factom Factom is a project that already hosts a tonne of value, around $500 million worth to be exact. Factom has been backed by Tim Draper, which in turn is helping to draw a lot of attention to this project, according to American Inno: “Factom, which has backing from Tim Draper, has landed contracts to protect data housed by the U.S. Border Patrol, the Department of Homeland Security and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Factom’s other co-founder, Jack Lu, also launched Wanchain, which has landed millions in Ethereum and provides cross-blockchain functions.” What is Factom? Well, according to the Factom website: “At Factom, we make the world’s systems honest and build trust between organizations, people and institutions today, solve hard problems through the utilization of Factom’s Blockchain. We see a future world where fraud, corruption, and forgery are a thing of the past. We believe in keeping private data private and securing the world’s wealth because privacy and possession of property are basic human rights. Life can be a little more fair with Factom.” Coinigy Coinigy is a brand new crypto portfolio management, according to American Inno: “A cryptocurrency startup in Milwaukee called Coinigy gives crypto traders the tools they need to buy, sell and manage their portfolios. Users get access to data on more than 40 exchanges and the ability for users to trade on nearly 20 exchanges. Though the company was founded in 2014, it just launched its mobile app in May to let traders trade on the go, and now has upwards of 80,000 users, roughly half of which pay about $20 per month for the product. And the founders say revenue has grown 300 percent year-over-year, which is pretty impressive.” And, according to the Coinigy website: “Coinigy is the best way to access the global financial markets of the future. Businesses small and large rely on our data to power their decision-making. We are a group of dedicated developers, traders, analysts and evangelists that believe in the upcoming paradigm shift that cryptography and the blockchain are bringing to the global financial industry. We built Coinigy because we are passionate about open, transparent markets and aim to be a major driving force in widespread adoption. Our goal as a company is to empower 100,000 people through powerful tools and education.” Block.one You’ve probably heard of these guys. The last of American Inno’s recommendations that we wish to touch upon is Block.one, the startup behind the EOS project. All things considered, it’s pretty clear why Block.one are quite a big deal and why we believe they are still one to watch. According to American Inno: “The maker of the world’s fifth most valuable cryptocurrency expanded its footprint in a major way this year. The blockchain company, which has offices around the world and was founded just a couple years ago, moved into its own 30,000-square-foot building in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center in October. Block.one created EOS, which raised $4 billion in an initial coin offering, and it’s backed by Peter Thiel — making it by far Central Virginia’s biggest blockchain startup.” Now, as stated, we’re not telling you that these are the projects to invest in, however we do believe it is worth your while looking into them and doing some further research. Each example is exploring a very unique area of blockchain technology, yet together, all these projects are working together to bring blockchain technology to the mainstream. They are doing great things for themselves, their investors and the entire blockchain adoption movement. googletag.cmd.pus

Ethereum’s MetaMask Wallet Shares the Mobile App Release at DevCon

CoinSpeaker Ethereum’s MetaMask Wallet Shares the Mobile App Release at DevCon First launched in 2016, Metamask has only been accessible through browser extensions on Chrome, Brave, and Firefox and was restricted to mobile users. This meant that it worked like a bridge between normal browsers and the Ethereum blockchain. The browser extension is mainly popular amongst Ethereum and ERC-20 users due to its simple user interface and its ease to handle decentralized applications (dApps) requests. For many years, MetaMask users have been asking for a mobile client of the wallet, as the vast majority of Ethereum users have started to rely on MetaMask as the main ETH and token wallet. During this major conference, hosted by Ethereum Foundation, the founder and CEO of ConsenSys, Joseph Lublin, finally announced the launch of the mobile user interface. He also wrote at his Twitter page: “The @metamask_io mobile app was just announced at #Devcon4! Everyone’s favorite #Ethereum browser extension is coming to your phone. The team is focusing on not being ‘just a wallet’, but a portal to the world of all things #blockchain.” Metamask Mobile, lays on the industry belief that mobile phones are more secure than desktop computers due to their architectural designs. Most cryptocurrency users already have a preference for mobile wallets and this will enable users to have full control of their funds. Although, users will have to take responsibility for their private keys (or passwords). Storing that on a cloud seems now pretty insecure. MetaMask communicates with the Ethereum ledger through a system called Infura. This means that it trusts other computers to keep it up to date with the Ethereum network. Full node systems are generally preferred to systems that involve trusting middlemen like Infura. The added feature that is bundled with Metamask mobile is the dApp support. With it, users can interact with different decentralized applications that they couldn’t do. The mobile client will be able to function as a dApp browser or a “Google Play Store for dApps.” Also on MetaMask mobile, users can run various dApps such as CryptoKitties by connecting the wallet to the dApp to seamlessly process information on the Ethereum mainnet. Some dApps you can also explore are Digital art, where auctions are held and users can buy and sell unique collectibles. Also, there is, built by gamers, Blockchain arcades where gamers can use Ether and tokens to enter video game tournaments. Metamask Joining The Big dApp Company Until now, there were only several dApp browsers available on the market, including some backed by large organizations. In July, leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, bought the Trust Wallet, a secure and intuitive mobile wallet that supports Ethereum’s ether (ETH), GoChain (GO), Wanchain (WAN), Ethereum Classic (ETC), POA Network, (POA) VeChain (VET), and TRON (TRX). Coinbase also has its own cryptocurrency wallet and dApp browser, the Coinbase Wallet that is set to also support other popular cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, bitcoin cash, and litecoin. Earlier this year, Opera introduced a mobile browser for Android devices with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet. A version of the wallet has been added to its desktop browser. In July, Metamask announced its removal from the Chrome Web Store, the reasons for which were not explained. Several hours later, it was listed again. While MetaMask was delisted, an Ethereum-based prediction market protocol Augur, which recently got under fire for speculating on death benefits, warned users to not download the MetaMask extension that was actually present in Google Chrome’s store, as it was a fake application. Even though it got listed only few hours after, there never came an explanation for this event. Ethereum’s MetaMask Wallet Shares the Mobile App Release at DevCon

This week in Crypto: Elon Musk, Bakkt, Tron, China, Coinbase, Binance, Bitcoin and XRP

Quite a lot happened this week with the cryptocurrency market still struggling to maintain a steady price and not going up much. This is a roundup of activities in the crypto space for the week 21 to 27 October 2018. Elon Musk’s Tweets Bitcoin On Monday, Elon, who is the CEO of Tesla and founder of SpaceX, shot out a tweet stating that he loved anime. He then followed it up with a nice anime image with a huge Bitcoin logo on it. The tweet read, ”Wanna buy some Bitcoin?” The tweet went viral and attracted various influential Twitter users, the founder of Binance, Zhao Changpeng joined the thread and offered to buy a Tesla car if the company can accept crypto payments. Bakkt Sets Launch Date For Bitcoin Futures The plan to launch a platform to attract institutional investors into the cryptocurrency industry is no longer news. No date was announced for the official launch from the start though. This week, Bakkt announced through a notice released by its parent company Intercontinental Exchange that the official launch of its Bitcoin futures will be on 12 December 2018. The notice which was dated 22 October said: “ICE Futures U.S., Inc. will list the new Bakkt Bitcoin (USD) Daily Futures Contract for trading on Wednesday, December 12, 2018. The Bakkt Bitcoin (USD) Daily Futures Contract is a physically-settled daily futures contract for bitcoin held in Bakkt LLC, ICE’s Digital Asset Warehouse, and will be cleared by ICE Clear US, Inc.” Bakkt’s Bitcoin futures launch is one of the milestones expected to turn the fortune of Bitcoin around before the year runs out. Tron This week, Tron’s Justin Sun donated $3million to Binance to support Blockchain Foundation charity, a gesture that was well appreciated by the company. The donation may not be unconnected with the recent agreement between Sun and CEO of Binance to work together in promoting the use of blockchain. Tron has also made some progress this week with its gaming dApp Tronbet hitting a high of 200 million TRX in payouts. The company is also spearheading the complete decentralization of the internet with its revolutionary web 3.0. Following the launch of its “Tronlink” users can now access the Tron blockchain via their browsers. With these new products, it is not surprising that the company intends to dominate the content industry with more products to come. China A Chinese court, Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration this week officially ruled that merchants in China can accept Bitcoin as a means of payment in the country. According to a report, part of the ruling stated that: “CN law does not forbid owning & transferring bitcoin, which should be protected by law because of its property nature and economic value.” Finally, crypto enthusiasts and investors in China can carry BTC freely and even use it as a means of payment. What a progress. Coinbase Coinbase exchange is to announce its first Initial Public Offering (IPO) soon. This announcement was contained in a tweet within the week. According to a report by Cointelegraph, details of the IPO were scheduled to be released on Friday 26th. The company has also been authorized to offer custody services for all the top cryptocurrencies. Coinbase had earlier been ranked as the safest crypto exchange in the world, which may be why the New York State Banking Law could trust its Coinbase Custody with huge funds of users. The exchange also added USDC token to its list of supported tokens this week. Binance It seems Binance is serious about its charity ambition as the world’s largest crypto exchange launched a blockchain donation portal at UN conference in Geneva within the week. Justin Sun had made a donation to this cause at the same conference. Meanwhile, Binance also announced that its Trust Wallet now supports Tron (TRX) as one of its crypto assets. The wallet which is supported by both Android and iOS devices currently supports Ethereum (ETH), GoChain (GO), POA Network (POA), Callisto (CLO), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Wanchain (WAN) and VeChain (VET), TRON (TRX) and all ERC20, ERC223 and ERC721 tokens. Bitcoin Despite the unstable market, Bitcoin (BTC) showed a lot of stability this week. The stability was so strong that Bitcoin went up by 1% within the week while Dow and Nasdaq went down. Safe to say Bitcoin is less volatile than the two! Another big thing, a brand new token to be launched on the Ethereum blockchain is to be fully backed by Bitcoin. The token is to be launched with support from Kyber Network, Republic Protocol and BitGo. Some Ethereum-based projects have also pledged their support to ensure adoption of the token when it is released. This is a big step for Bitcoin that will help to renew its relevance in the everchanging crypto space. Ripple (XRP) Ripple report for the third quarter of 2018 revealed that sales have doubled within the quarter, selling up to $163 million in XRP during the time. This figure roughly doubles the Q2 total sales of $73.53 million, suggesting that market vo

TRX is one of the most popular digital assets with its blockchain having over half a million accounts at the moment of writing this. In terms of daily transactions, the Tron blockchain has exceeded those of Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP on an individual basis. Backed By Binance The cryptocurrency exchange of Binance acquired the Trust wallet back in July this year to provide better service and to enhance the safety for all users of the exchange. In the announcement about the acquisition, the team also added the following plans of its use it with the future Decentralized Exchange by Binance: The acquisition of Trust Wallet will add an on-chain mobile wallet to the list of Binance services with other future integration possibilities.

Blockbuster ICOs Fail to Deliver High Returns, Says Co-Founder of Crypto Asset Fund

While blockbuster ICOs may receive a lot of hype, they fail to generate the highest returns for investors, according to Dovey Wan, the co-founder of crypto asset fund Primitive Ventures. Wan tweeted: “We surveyed major ICOs and found - large raises never mean high return.” Wan fell short of identifying the deals that she used in the study, but separate industry research has revealed that many of last year’s ICOs including Sirin Labs have failed to maintain gains in the crypto market this year. Wan recommends running a “lean” operation. (GT)

New Research: Large-Raise ICOs ‘Never’ Deliver Returns

If an ICO raised “large” amounts during its token sale, it means the returns to investors are “never high,” according to new research published October 25. Big Investment, Small Dividends The results of a survey by cryptoasset investment fund Primitive confirm that investors choosing to send money to ICOs should, in fact, look for those which plan to raise smaller - not larger - amounts. “We surveyed major ICOs and found - large raises never mean high returns,” Primitive co-founder Dovey Wan commented on Twitter uploading the data. [A] War chest may buy superficial ‘traction,’ like how 40% of VC money for traditional startups all goes to Google/Facebook on ads. Being able to run lean is key to succeeding as a founder, in any sectors.

While Wan did not initially reveal which ICOs had constituted the data, the results continue recent negative publicity for the sector, which has seen losses this year often making headlines. As Bitcoinist reported in September quoting data from monitoring resource Diar, some of the biggest ICOs of 2017 have since lost the most money relative to their starting capital. A list of the industry’s “top ten losers” placed Sirin Labs at number one, the project’s market cap dropping from $158 million after the ICO to just $17 million now - a loss of 89 percent. Paragon, Bancor, and Kin also fared disastrously, shedding 96, 52 and 53 percent of their market cap respectively. However, while the total figure for ICOs being “underwater” this year has passed 70 percent, market sentiment has since turned away from pure capital, Diar notes, due to the very nature of many of the projects behind fundraising moves. “And with tokens having no equity representation, markets have shrugged off cash-on-hand as part of an enterprise valuation,” it summarized.

CryptoCurve Announces Integration with ICON, AION and Wanchain Blockchain Platforms

The CryptoCurve ecosystem recently announced plans to expand its integration at the protocol level to the Aion and ICON blockchain platforms, fully integrating with all member platforms of the Blockchain Interoperability Alliance, which also includes the Wanchain (WAN). Through the integration, users of the CryptoCurve platform will be able to benefit from the scalability and interconnectivity that the other alliance members provide. The goal of the Blockchain Interoperability Alliance is to promote interconnectivity between isolated blockchain networks. (JF)

CryptoCurve To Fully Integrate With Aion And ICON

A project with ambitions to become the world’s leading tools provider for front-end blockchain designers will fully integrate with the ICON (ICX) and Aion (AION) blockchains. Blockchain product and service provider, CryptoCurve, announced on Tuesday that it had expanded its protocol to both the ICON and AION ecosystems. The project hopes to be fully compatible with Aion by the end of the month, with development set to begin soon on ICON integration. The CryptoCurve platform is looking to offer multiple products and services that it hopes will encourage more people to use Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). A spokesman from the project said CryptoCurve’s products are designed to help bring down barriers to entry: “Our goal is to make it convenient for everyday people to interact with their digital assets regardless of the platform they are hosted on”, she said. Today’s news means Curve wallet users will one day have access to the ICON and Aion platforms. The wallet is it’s flagship project. As well as allowing users to store their virtual currency, it can also be used to trade different assets as well as manage their portfolio. “Wallet applications will be an essential part of increasing adoption of blockchain, and CryptoCurve is bringing new, innovative technology to the space”, said Matt Spoke, Founder of Aion Network. Both ICON and Aion are blockchain networks dedicated to greater interoperability between different blockchains. Based in Korea, ICON is designed to connect different sidechains together to foster greater cooperability. Aion is a platform for different unconnected platforms to transfer value and data to one another; its mainnet launched at the end of April. Straight outta Wanchain. CryptoCurve is still in the development phase, having only released its Curve wallet into beta. It is also building its own sidechain development kit (SDK), giving developers access to standardized tools. The project will at some point launch its own blockchain startup accelerator, Curve Labs. The project was one of the first to come out of Wanchain’s (WAN) blockchain startup accelerator, the WanLabs Initiative. The two companies are now in partnership. CryptoCurve services are designed to be fully interoperable with the WAN network. Investors interested in the CURV token (CryptoCurve’s utility token) public sale will need WAN to participate. “Interoperability is in our DNA as a company,” explained CryptoCurve Founder and CEO Joshua Halferty. “Our longstanding partnership with Wanchain has helped us build our applications to be natively interoperable, and this new integration with Aion and ICON will open a lot of new doors for us in terms of scaling and expanding our ecosystem for our users.” CryptoCurve Is Now Fully Integrated With The Blockchain Interoperability Alliance Wanchain, ICON, and Aion are all members of the Blockchain Interoperability Alliance, an association that promotes increased interconnectivity between otherwise separate networks. Today’s news will mean CryptoCurve applications will be fully compatible with each of the member projects. “This new integration makes the CryptoCurve ecosystem the common denominator among the members of Blockchain Interoperability Alliance,” said Halferty. Tribalism once proliferated in the space, especially during the extended bull run last year. This has died off as the prices have sunk. Many projects are now looking at ways to collaborate and complement one another. CryptoCurve’s wallet integration with ICON and AION, as well as already with Wanchain, will encourage front-end designers to create products compatible with all three networks. “CryptoCurve is a key entry point to the Wanchain ecosystem,” explained Jack Lu, founder of Wanchain. “From the internet world, we know how important front-end applications are for mass adoption, and the same thing is true for blockchain.” A CryptoCurve ball indeed...

Worst Cryptocurrencies of 2018 Have Left Some Heavy Bagholders

Tales of woe are easy to come by in the current market, in which most altcoins are faring multiples worse than bitcoin. Investors that have avoided the following projects, however, can draw some solace. Also read: US Court Issues Emergency Order Halting a Planned Initial Coin Offering This Year’s Underperforming Coins Have Fared Worse Than You Think It’s easy to find underperforming altcoins from the past 10 months of largely bearish market action. Echelons easier, in fact, than finding the handful that have weathered the storm and have appreciated in value or, at the very least, have outperformed bitcoin. Taking a magnifying glass to 2018’s altcoin dunces makes for a productive exercise; not to revel in the misfortune of others, but for educational purposes. “I bought the ‘dip’ a dozen times this year,” one Redditor complained recently. “Went down after each time.” Another remarked: “I’ve lost 95 percent of 25k and have been buying all the way down.” The “hodl” meme that prospered in 2017, helping traders through “China bans bitcoin” FUD and other negative news cycles, has largely been abandoned now that hodling has been proven to be a disastrous strategy for anyone heavily invested in altcoins. The BTFD (Buy the F- Dip) meme has also waned, as traders have learned that in many cases the dip is often merely a precursor to a series of even lower dips. Lesson 1: There’s a Big Difference Between a 90% and a 95% Loss Wanchain (WAN), one of the more established cryptocurrency projects, is down 90 percent from its all-time high (ATH). The helpful break-even multiple column provided by Onchainfx shows that WAN would need to do a 10x to reach its previous ATH. Icon (ICX) is down 95 percent in comparison. On paper, it may sound like ICX has fared only marginally worse than WAN, and yet it would take a 20x multiple for icon to reach its former peak of $12.04 per token. The worst performers of 2018 by break-even multiple, according to Onchainfx Lesson 2: Don’t Trust the Market Cap of Forked Coins Market cap, or the number of coins in circulation multiplied by price per coin, is a notoriously crude yardstick, but it’s particularly bad when it comes to forks. Coins like bitcoin private and bitcoin diamond have market caps calculated by the number of BTC holders who could technically claim the forks. But in reality, the vast majority of bitcoiners have no interest in these minority forks and will never bother to obtain them, making their true circulating supply and market cap significantly lower. Bitcoin atom (BTA), for example, has a market cap of $4.67 million. Its 24-hour volume is less than $15,000, however, and BTA is down 99.98 percent for the year to date, according to Coincodex. Another coin with a supposedly high market cap, ignis, is down 99.66 percent this year, despite technically having a cap of $30 million. Ignis has fallen so far, its yearly chart appears to be dead after March. Lesson 3: There’s No Such Thing as a Price Floor Just because an altcoin is down more than 90 percent doesn’t mean the road to (partial) recovery is in sight. Many traders racked up huge losses this year — not from buying at the top, but from buying at what they believed to be the bottom. As one trader confessed: I bought bitclave (CAT) on exchange at ICO price thinking wow a shitcoin finally at ICO ... then it went -99% on me. As one can see in Telegram channels that share the collective salt of crypto investors, everyone’s portfolio is underwater this year. It’s just that some have shipped water at a much faster rate than others. In the case of leading cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin core, bitcoin cash and ethereum, the vast majority of investors didn’t purchase these assets at their ATH. Anyone who held BTC or BCH a year ago, for instance, would still be up on their investment by around 30 percent. The markets aren’t nearly as gloomy as crypto’s worst critics would suggest — except in the case of traders who got carried away and diversified into risky altcoins and ICO tokens during peak mania. “I had a dream of making so much I could retire. I thought it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to make tons of cash and I was worried about missing out so I took a huge risk,” one investor recently confessed. “Life has humbled me. I’m an idiot.” Do you think altcoin investors will be shrewder in picking their portfolios in the future, or will the lessons of 2018 be promptly forgotten when the bull market returns?

Is Delta Direct Really Just A Blockfolio Signal Copycat?

With investors scattered all over the world, communication is essential in the cryptocurrency sector. Companies in the space want news about them to be accurate and fair. Teams update followers through a variety of different media, but these can become vulnerable to fake news. Now some have started using new channels to directly communicate updates to their investors and followers. For Nicolas Van Hoorde, the week has been a trial. He is the co-founder of the cryptocurrency portfolio application Delta, which successfully launched its news feed service earlier this week. Known as Delta Direct, the integrated feature allows projects to announce developments directly to followers and investors. Direct acts as a news aggregator; it pulls together posts from teams’ official Medium blog as well as their activity from Twitter and other social media platforms. Van Hoorde said in a statement at Direct’s launch that projects would be able to provide accurate updates, free of spin, and build bonds of trust between teams and their investors. “We believe that in this current state of [the] market, token teams need to be empowered to communicate with their stakeholders,” he said. “With Delta Direct we also want to counter misinformation about projects.” What’s the difference between Delta Direct and Blockfolio Signal? Delta isn’t the only platform around offering a news service. The Direct feature is very similar to the Signal service offered by the rival price-tracking application, Blockfolio. Launched back in May, the feature also enables investors to be updated by their token teams through notifications and a rolling news feed. Blockfolio created Signal because it wanted to improve trust in the community with a channel for teams to send ‘signals’ directly to their token holders. “Signals come straight from the token team leadership, free of the noise and toxicity that we so often see in the current communication channels used by the global crypto community,” Blockfolio CEO Ed Moncada, said at the time. Direct had been originally slated for release on Monday, but an unforeseen bug in the Android update pushed back the launch until Wednesday. Van Hoorde spoke to Crypto Briefing just after the successful launch. He said that despite strong similarities there were nonetheless differences between Delta Direct and Blockfolio Signal. Van Hoorde explained that Delta itself placed no restrictions on projects using their news aggregator. Whereas Blockfolio controls and edits the content posted on Signals, Direct doesn’t. This allows traders to access updates from any of the projects they follow. “It’s not our place to decide what the user should see”, he says over the phone. He admitted that not all of the projects using Delta would be legitimate; another Bitconnect could sign up and use the service tomorrow, he said. “We’re taking a different stance with Direct”, said Van Hoorde. “We don’t put restrictions; we’re more in line with decentralization”. “We’re not trying to act like an overarching god,” he added. Back at Blockfolio, where the team was busy celebrating a new $11M round led by Pantera on Thursday, Ed Moncada was circumspect about the different approaches the two teams have taken to arrive at similar solutions. “Bitcccccoooooooonnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeccct!!! ....... are the types of projects we hope NOT to see using Blockfolio Signal,” he told Crypto Briefing in an email. “We chose to roll out Blockfolio Signal in a responsible manner and in a way that builds trust within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Just like a company culture is heavily defined by its early employees, we believe that a product culture is similarly shaped by its early participants. I want to be clear that the token teams on the Blockfolio platform ultimately control their own content and we are 100% committed to making it available to all token teams in the near future. Ultimately, we really want to be responsible about how we roll it out.” Crypto fake news Misinformation has long permeated the cryptocurrency space; it leads to sharp price swings. Dogecoin (DOGE) shot up amidst reports that the project would begin cross-chain development with the Ethereum platform, at the beginning of September. Whilst ‘Dogethereum’ later turned out to be false, the story was reported on by various media outlets. The ensuing hype led to a $400m surge in the total value of DOGE. Also in early September, unnamed sources told Business Insider the investment bank Goldman Sachs was scrapping its BTC trading desk. It was already too late by the time the bank’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Martin Chavez, claimed the rumours were unsubstantiated; approximately $50bn was wiped from the market’s total value in less than a week. Probably because it has been running for longer, there are more projects available with Blockfolio; although neither service can be used for updates on major projects such as Ethereum (ETH) or Bitcoin (BTC).

CZ Claims Traditional Markets Have More Manipulation Than Crypto

The Crypto industry has had a hard time through accusations of market manipulations and fraud. Investor Dovey Wan on Twitter said the Crypto market is bad because the information is always incomplete. She added that it is susceptible to market manipulation and TA signals were artificial. Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the founder and CEO of the world's largest crypto exchange, Binance was not happy with the comment and pointed out that market manipulation was more on traditional markets. Crypto assets trade on multiple exchanges worldwide, making it difficult to manipulate.

Elastos and ledger

Hi, So I’m trying to add ledger support for elastos, and I just started doing the research. I made the neo and wanchain apps, so I’m familiar with that side of things. So I have a few questions: 1) is the source code for the web wallet anywhere? It’s usually easiest to integrate with a web wallet or a light wallet. 2) if the web wallet isn’t available is there any JavaScript based light wallet? I looked at the CLI and it’s in golang, which ledger doesn’t support. So that means either building golang support or writing my own light wallet for elastos. It looks like you guys use the standard P256 curve, which ledger supports as cx_curve_secp256r1, so the actual implementation is very straightforward. It’s just gluing it to your blockchain that will take a while. Finally, is there funding for this? Or just donations? It usually takes around three months to do an app implementation. Neo and wanchain had funding, nano I did it for donations. So don’t expect anything soon, but expect at least biweekly updates until I’m done, or I give up....

Russian Police Confiscate 22 Bitcoin ATM from 9 Cities

The recent seizure of 22 Bitcoin ATMs by Russian police could possibly signal what maybe a government led cryptocurrency crackdown in Russia. On Friday, August 31 police seized the 22 Bitcoin ATMs from various locations across nine Russian cities. The confiscation came without warning or explanation and and BBFpro owner and CEO, Artem Bedarev told reporters that the order came direct from Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office and that “the inspection would take at least six months and that the ATMs wouldn’t be returned until it’s finished.” Apparently, authorities want to ensure that BBFpro is tax compliant and there are concerns on whether or not the know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money-laundering (AML) procedures are being followed. The seizure comes as Russia’s Federal Financial Monitoring Service finalized plans for deploying a system that tracks the wallet addresses of select individuals and businesses in Russia. (RS)
