Bitcoin baby

Some commentators have dismissed bitcoin technology as a joke compared to blockchain, but actually bitcoin technology is proving more resilient as a de-centralized, truly novel approach to financial services. Most blockchain implementations in the financial service industry deliver cost efficiencies, but are permission-based, which makes them similar to all other centralized technology. However, by using Bitcoin as a base layer technology, new digital cash systems, can be built without the risks of regulation or shutdown … delivering true independence. https://laughterandlearning.com/

Bitcoin Gets Rejected In China Again As Libra Is Compared To Alipay And Wechat Pay

China has once again shown pessimism on Bitcoin. This time, according to Globaltimes, bitcoin fell short of recognition amongst the likes of Libra, Alipay and Wechat Pay. China said a few good comments about Libra this week, and according to report, the country has considered it to be very similar to payment systems like their locally used alternatives like Wechat Pay and Alipay. In a globaltimes report which explicated on the obvious similarities between Chinese payment systems and Libra as well as the various uses cases of the highly controversial Facebook project, Libra was expressed to be “independent,” “stable,” “convenient,” and “safe.” Further, “Libra, unlike other cryptocurrencies, has a stable currency value and is convenient and safe to use in cross-border transactions,” writes Li Daokui, author of the op-ed. “In fact, Libra is in many ways the same as Alipay and WeChat Pay. The difference is that Alipay and WeChat Pay are directly pegged with the yuan – 1 yuan in an Alipay or WeChat Pay account equals 1 yuan of fiat money – while Libra is pegged with a basket of currencies. This difference indicates Libra is an independent currency and one that could very well grow into an important super-sovereign currency.” Although this consideration does not particularly mention any cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, it does consider the immutability of sovereign currencies of which Libra shows similar qualities. Further speaking on the matter, Li Daokui maintained that, “China should take advantage of WeChat Pay and Alipay, among other technological innovations, to increase the cross-border use of the yuan and accelerate the yuan’s internationalization,” he says. “The nation should also take an active role in the operation and management of Libra, to establish a foothold in the future international currency battlefield.” Bitcoin Always Falls Short Of China’s Recognition This news comes after China, earlier this year, placed other cryptocurrencies like EOS ahead of bitcoin on their list of top cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin also fell short of recognition as it couldn’t make the top 10 of the list where Ethereum had also managed to secure a spot.

Wanchain, Civic, Aion and Tael Top All Cryptos; Coins in Aggregate Up 3.13% Overall, 34 Coins Cross Key Moving Average

The Big Winners From Yesterday Over the past day, the top performing coin out of the 133 coins we are tracking was Wanchain, which offered a day-over-day return 90.53%. Rounding out the top four currencies for the day were Civic, Aion, and Tael, which provided holders with returns of 27.02%, 26.53%, and 22.7% for the day. These moves were quite significant, in the sense that they were well outside of the volatility each of the respective coins had seen for the past two weeks. Crypto brokers to trade the currencies mentioned here: Gate, Yobit, Stex, Binance, DDEX, ETHfinex The Crypto Big Picture Overall, the average change in coin price for the coins we’re tracking was up 3.1253%. On a more granular level, 65% of the coins we’re tracking were up while 35% of the coins were down. Below we can see the average daily change for the coins we are tracking our index over time. 34 coins are especially close to their 20 day moving average, and thus may be worth watching for technical traders who view the 20 day moving average as a key support/resistance level. Crypto brokers to trade the currencies mentioned here: Gate, Yobit, Stex, Binance, DDEX, ETHfinex Currencies With Significant Price Moves Here’s a list of the specific coins that crossed their key moving average level: Status, district0x, Loopring, 0x, SingularDTV, SONM, IOTA, Verge, AirSwap, Request, Viberate, Power Ledger, Ripio Credit Network, Agrello, BlockMason Credit Protocol, Aeron, Genesis Vision, Po.et, Tierion, Tael, Time New Bank, Waves, OST, NavCoin, Lunyr, AppCoins, VIBE, Nucleus Vision, POA Network, Groestlcoin, Skycoin, Civic, Streamr DATAcoin, Dock.

Futures trading platform Digitex prepares for public testnet, announces release date

Digitex, a trading platform for crypto futures contracts, announced today that it will be launching its public testnet on Nov. 30, 2019. The exchange plans to open their market starting with BTC/USD perpetual swap contracts. According to the exchange website, contracts for additional coins will be added based on user demand. For market makers and takers, Digitex won’t charge for any transactions. The project plans to cover all operational costs by creating value/demand around the Digitex Futures (DGTX) token. It will do this by minting a small number of tokens each year. The exchange will launch as a centralized exchange first but will continue to work on providing users with non-custodial (decentralized) accounts. This will allow users to have 100% ownership of their funds at all times while still able to make real-time trades and lightning speed. You know that Adam has been busy behind the scenes preparing to launch the game-changing, robust & rapid-fire #DigitexFutures #Exchange. But, our marketing efforts have been ramping up too & we’re pleased to announce that our community is growing globally! https://t.co/O8Ll6n9ot4 — Digitex (@DigitexFutures) August 21, 2019 Trading On The Testnet SmartDec, the development firm working with Digitex, is developing and vigorously testing the platform, preparing it for production. On the testnet, the firm says the exchange will be able to handle over 10,000 users trading concurrently and up to 50,000 transactions per second. A date has not been set for the Digitex platform’s mainnet launch yet, but the project team has said that testnet trading is anticipated to last for two months. After the testnet stage wraps up, Digitex plans to launch on the Ethereum mainnet. At that time, users can trade futures contracts in real-time using DGTX tokens. 2019: The Year of Crypto Futures Trading As it stands, 2019 is shaping up to be an important year for emerging futures trading platforms in crypto. The launch of Bakkt, another highly-anticipated trading platform, is scheduled for Sept. 23, 2019.
