Waves / USD Technical Analysis: Interfering Signs

Waves is bullish in the short-term with the pair currently retracing lower after a strong upside rally Four-hour and Daily time frames show the pair trapped within a descending wedge pattern The cryptocurrency finds itself at a critical juncture in the medium-term Waves / USD Short-term price analysis   In the short-term, Waves is bullish with price still holding above its 50-period moving average on the four-hour time frame. It is worth noting, the Waves / USD pair has been gradually retracing lower, following its recent rally. Price is still creating bullish higher highs and lower lows, with the pair falling back inside a bullish descending wedge pattern on the four-hour time frame. Technical indicators appear to be getting ready for the next strong directional move in the Waves / USD pair.     Waves / USD H4 Chart                                           (Source: TradingView)     Pattern Watch Aside from the previously mentioned wedge pattern, traders should watch for price to continue to make higher highs and higher lows. If this dynamic changes, we could see the pair losing its short-term bullish status.   Key Moving Averages The 50-period moving averages on the four-hour time frame is currently offering strong support, an actual decline below this area will shift the pair’s short-term bullish outlook.   MACD The MACD indicator is correcting higher and showing a slight bullish bias on the four-hour time frame.   RSI The Relative Strength Index is attempting to recover higher; traders should watch this indicator if it starts making bullish higher highs. Waves / USD Medium-term price analysis   In the medium-term, Waves remains technically bullish with a Golden Cross still in progress on the daily time frame. Recent bullish momentum has started to subside, with price now trading back inside a bullish descending wedge pattern on the daily time frame, which mirrors the action on the four-hour time frame. A sustained break above the bullish wedge would likely provoke a test of the rising trendline on the daily time frame. A worrying development for the Waves / USD pair is bulls inability to keep price above the cryptocurrencies 50-day moving average, which is a key-sign of overall strength.     Waves / USD Daily Chart                                                       (Source: TradingView)     Pattern Watch Traders should carefully monitor the descending wedge pattern on the daily time frame, especially for a sustained technical break above the bullish pattern.   RSI Indicator The Relative Strength Index is neutral with a slight bullish bias; traders should carefully watch this indicator around current levels.   Moving Averages Technical failure below the pair’s 50-day moving average supports the idea that price may eventually fall towards its 200-day moving average, for a major test of overall buying interest over the medium-term. Conclusion   Waves is trading at a critical juncture with a technical breakout in either direction close by; the daily time frame currently offers a more reliable guide to the pair’s next breakout move. The bearish case supports a move towards the pair’s 200-day moving average, while a bullish breakout above the wedge pattern may provoke a strong move towards the rising trendline on the daily time frame.

Waves Digital Asset Update Report: Feb 2019 DARE by Crypto Briefing

Waves Digital Asset Report: February 2019 Update In the past two months Waves has had a number of significant events and has rebounded in price despite a lingering bear market. While the technological development continues to be the strong side of the network, there are now several indicators suggesting that previously weak marketing will have a turnaround. Waves appears to be making a strong push into the gaming industry. Back in the ICO days it was ahead of its rivals when it came to instant-launch features, and it could again be ahead now with its gaming efforts. Still, Waves continues to struggle with the articulation of its long-term vision, and it remains to be seen if the network is able to create any real engagement beyond its core group of faithful users and developers. This report is an Update Report – our continuing examination of Waves’ performance and risk/reward factors. The analysis, verdict and accompanying grade reflect our opinion on the long-term value prospects of a given token based on the current state of project development and indicators of future commercial viability – they are not designed to be indicative of short-term trading opportunities. You can see a full explanation of how our reports are constructed and what they mean at the bottom of this page. Part One: The Business Case Waves Market Opportunities With the ICO star waning, the STO mechanisms have come to the forefront. In the Initiation Report we mentioned the STO opportunity, but since then Waves has made significant progress in that direction. With the signing of the cooperation agreement with BetterTokens, the beta launch of the Tokenomica’s platform in Malta, and the release of Smart Assets on the Mainnet, Waves gets a few steps closer to operating one of the first licensed security token exchanges. This will pit Waves against the likes of Polymath but given that the segment is still very young and undefined, Waves is still in a great position to capitalize on the trend. However, in the near term, this will be a much smaller market, than its ICO predecessor. Furthermore, unlike ICOs where the name of the game was retail, STOs are about accredited investors. Waves will need to develop partnerships and brand awareness in order to attract good projects. During the ICO days, the network got away with quantity, but STOs will be much more about quality. It remains to be seen if the marketing and business development personnel will be up to the challenge. The DEX opportunities will face additional pressure from competition. With more and more blockchain projects like Tron, seeing DEXs launch, to much fanfare, Waves will have a harder time attracting traders and maintaining liquid markets. Furthermore, with Binance expected to launch its own DEX, the competitive landscape will become even more challenging. Waves was one of the earliest proponents of the DEX paradigm, but it has been unable to become the dominant exchange even on a regional level and will be fighting an uphill battle for market share going forward. However, Waves is opening up an exciting market when it comes to games. The gaming industry is a substantial opportunity both in terms of size and adoption barrier.     The gaming industry and the nearby gambling sector have real need-based used cases for the implementation of DLT, smart contracts and NFTs. Since the Initiation Report, Waves has gone beyond declaring intentions towards development and aiding teams in the ecosystem. The Xmas Tree game, launched by Tradisys during the holiday season was a nice appetizer for the things to come in 2019, and the same team also recently launched the game Fhloston Paradies. There should be a few more games releases in Q1-Q2 of 2019, but the big game changer could be the Items Store currently in development. While projects like DMarket, create a market for originally centralized in-game items, and as such are dependent on goodwill from platforms like Steam, Waves intends to build a store for blockchain-based games. While this may not be interesting (and could even be threatening) to big publishers and existing platform plays, this is great news for indie publishers and players. Waves’ intent to build out an items marketplace for its ecosystem could be a great catalyst as users will have an added incentive in the form of easy monetization to play the games. This will also give developers added motivation to build on the network or at least make the games compatible with Waves blockchain and token standards. The strategy is noticeably different from that of the big three of Ethereum, EOS and Tron. While the triumvirate clearly leads the gaming dApps space when it comes to sheer numbers, they seem to lack a coherent strategy, and the blockchain industry is still too young, with no player having enough adoption to confidently wear the crown. Waves’ focus on the in-games items market should allow it to carve out a significant niche for itself and then expand outwards. Overall, conditions will continue to get more challenging, but Waves appears to be poised to start capitalizing on some of its initiatives, which will give it a chance to capture significant market share. Ecosystem Development The ecosystem is seeing a few key dynamics developing. On one hand there has been a more focused effort to interact and help projects within the community. On the other hand, it is clear that while the technology might be decentralized, the team stewarding it and because of it the ecosystem itself, are not. What is even more concerning is that while the leadership group might have a plan, the community is mostly kept in the dark and has to operate on faith. Philosophically, that runs counter to everything DLT stands for. The gaming initiative has resulted in Waves really coming alive on the community front. There has been closer cooperation with teams and that’s something that has been lacking in the past. In addition, Waves held a 20-team hackathon across four tracks: identity and key management, gaming, fraud detection and document and task flow. The event was very well received by the community and instilled hope of more things to come in the future. The strategy in gaming appears to be geared towards indie developers and publishers, as major labels don’t appear to be interested or provide the right opportunities for cooperation. Waves is in a good position to attract indie shops, as it will be cheaper for them to launch on Waves, then say on Steam. In addition, the planned items store should create additional excitement. Furthermore, depending on how the store is received, Waves is looking to create plug-ins for Unity and Unreal Engine, although, no release dates have been disclosed in our conversations. There are currently three CIS-based teams that are working on serious gaming projects on Waves, but again further details were not disclosed. On a more general level, Waves Lab is launching Waves Grants, with a 1 million Waves budget. The network is intent on fostering better relationships with the developer community and is aware of the need to invest in that process. However, there is a sense within the community that there are teams who are “in”, or “favored” by the leadership, and if you are not one of them, the new initiatives may not benefit you to the same extent. Waves appears to be cautious and apprehensive when it comes to cooperating even within its own community. This could be, in part, due to the ICO fever experience, when hundreds upon hundreds of “garbage projects” were looking to launch on the network. Still, despite one of DLT’s core values being inclusivity, Waves is rather exclusive. This can also be seen in the STO stream. The BetterTokens and Tokenomica have strict requirements. The subsidy program for BetterTokens, of 10 WCT instead of 1000 Waves fee was an interesting appeasement move, but its debatable as to how much it really reduced the entrance barrier. Then there is the question of Vostok. While Waves price responds to positive Vostok news, there is not a lot of direct relationship between the two projects, as far as Waves token holders should be concerned. The big expected catalyst is the Vostok token airdrop. At the Annual Meeting, it was shared that the community would receive 3% of Vostok issued tokens, with the second stage of funding to be “launched early in 2019”. The airdrop is expected to commence in April. There are those nervous in the community, who see Waves as a centralized entity that has developed a decentralized technology to be used by the community, but that does not intend to share leadership or governance. More than that, the 3% looks almost like a payoff to quiet dissent. The Vostok project is based on the Waves technology that was funded through an ICO, but the profits of that endeavor will not be shared with the Waves community outside of the airdrop. While the founder’s position appears to be that all who wanted to profit from the Waves initial fundraising already did, some in the community feel cheated. This is further exacerbated by the fact that Waves leadership cannot provide a coherent explanation of what Waves-Vostok synergies will yield for Waves. At the moment the Waves ecosystem is in a state of cautious optimism. The network’s leadership has activated on many community related fronts, and if that momentum is capitalized on, this could be a turning point. However, if this is just a mirage perpetrated to make the Vostok pivot cleaner, Waves may see an exodus of teams in search of a more supportive environment. Lead Team The biggest development on this front is the continued ascension of Dmitry Suhamera. One of the biggest knocks against Waves has been the lack of talent on the business development, PR and marketing side. It appears that Dmitry Suhamera has become actively engaged on these fronts, and that could be a huge positive for the ecosystem. People like his professional approach. During our conversation he appeared knowledgeable and well prepared, creating an image of someone capable of executing on complex strategy. This was something that was sorely missing at Waves in the past. It remains to be seen if Mr. Suhamera’s rise to prominence is a sign of things to come, but the early indicators have been good. Still, the biggest concern remains around the centralized nature of the operation of the Waves core team. It appears that it functions like a big corporate machine, with individual members responsible for localized tasks, and discouraged from venturing outside set boundaries. The founder and leader of Waves, Alexander Ivanov seems to be the only one with a vision of where things are going, and he is not too keen on sharing it. He has been described as a “dictator”, and his inability or unwillingness to communicate his strategy beyond marketing catchphrases raises many questions. To Mr. Ivanov’s credit, unlike many of the founders in the in the industry, he has avoided the hype machine, and has not “scammed” the Waves crowd. He has delivered on his early promises, which has earned him some credit with the community, but the fact that people lack a clear understanding of his vision gives many pause. This remains one of the biggest risks associated with the network. Part Two: The Technology Case Underlying Technology Waves continues to be a technology-first company and is focusing on delivering complex functionality in simple and efficient UX/UI form. The integration with Microsoft Azure is a welcome sign, as it creates precedence and improves user experience. The continued development work on the smart contracts will be pivotal. An update is expected sometime in Q1 that should add new functionality to the smart contracts. The Waves ecosystem has not had smart contracts for that long, and it their initial release that galvanized the recent dApp development efforts. Continued improvement of the smart contract will further boost this trend. At the same time the continued growth of the ecosystem has started to lead to network overload. During periods of high usage, protocol issues have started to surface. This is not an often-discussed issue, but during these occurrences, nodes operate at suboptimal level, and if Waves intends to go full throttle into the gaming industry this could become a serious issue. The good news is that this is a known issue, the bad news is that there is no timetable or official roadmap for dealing with it yet. Finally, there is the Vostok track. Waves announced a $120 million private raise in the second half of December causing a price surge. The enterprise world of permissioned blockchains is brimming with exciting potential. Out West the blue chips (IBM, Amazon, Microsoft) are dominating the space, but in the East, Vostok could be the VK or Yandex of enterprise blockchains. Still, as exciting as that may sound, it is unclear what this promise really entails for the Waves ecosystem. Vostok has a separate development team, and while Waves staff has alluded to potential synergies and knowledge share with the core Waves product, there are no specifics in that regard. There is talk that smart contract development for Waves could benefit from Vostok’s permissioned blockchain experience, but until something tangible emerges, this is only speculation. Roadmap The 2019 roadmap update is expected on February 2, and Waves is touting some game-changing developments. It will be critical to see some concrete plans regarding smart contract updates, system optimization and dApps.   Next week in $Waves universe:– Very big client and Keeper update, smart assets trading and more– Ride update public roadmap. #dapps on Waves are coming, and it will change the game forever– Promised behemoth will finally move 🙂– Vostok airdrop snapshot period will start — Sasha Ivanov (@sasha35625) January 26, 2019   It will also be important to track the dissemination effort as it pertains to the roadmap. While there is little doubt regarding Waves’ technological prowess, the communication shortcomings have failed to generate proportional excitement in the past. Part Three: The Investment Case Token Performance Waves has had a wonderful end-of the year run and has cracked the top-25 list of crypto assets by market capitalization. Technical analysis suggests that there might be more good things ahead for the crypto-asset.   Waves/USD Short-term price analysis In the short-term, WAVES is attempting to push higher after breaking out from a bullish descending wedge pattern, as clearly illustrated on the four-hour chart. Strong dip-buying demand has been seen on recent pullbacks, the Waves/USD pair is now starting to appear more resilient than many other cryptocurrencies. Technical indicators are also rising in the short-term, with the Waves/USD pair also creating bullish higher lows after a relatively poor start to the new year.   Waves/USD H4 Chart                                                  Source Tradingview   Pattern Watch The break out from the falling wedge pattern on the mentioned time frame is the most technically significant development for the popular cryptocurrency in the short-term. A small bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern may also be in the process of forming across the lower time frames. Key Moving Averages The 50-period moving average on the four-hour time frame is currently offering strong support and capping declines. MACD The MACD indicator on the mentioned time frame is starting to rise alongside price, a bullish crossover is also underway. RSI The Relative Strength Index has turned bullish and is rising alongside price. Waves/USD Medium-term price analysis In the medium-term, WAVES is showing bullish signs, technical indicators are rising, and a Golden Cross is currently underway. A Golden Cross occurs when the 50-day moving average crosses above the 200-day moving average. Going forward, trading action is likely to center around the rising trendline seen on the daily time frame chart over the medium-term horizon. If buyers can break above the trendline and hold price above the trendline, the Waves/USD is likely to break higher and perform a substantial rally back towards its December 2018 trading high. Alternatively, if we see trendline resistance holding firm in the medium-term, we are likely to see a decline back towards the pair’s 200-day moving average. The bullish scenario is currently favored, as short, medium and longer-term indicators are starting to turn higher. MACD Indicator The MACD histogram is starting to move higher and is now trading in positive territory. A bullish MACD crossover is also in the early stages of forming. Moving Averages Buyers must keep price above the Waves/USD pair’s 50-day moving average to maintain overall bullish pressure in the medium-term.   WAVES/USD Daily Chart                                                       Source TradingView Waves/USD Long-term price analysis Waves is currently bearish over the long-term, although a number of positive technical developments are occurring which indicate that the cryptocurrency is on the cusp of a new bullish phase. Longer-term bulls following this cryptocurrency should also be encouraged, as the Relative Strength Index has turned bullish while the Stochastic indicator is oversold and showing potential for a bullish reversal on the weekly time frame. A large bearish head and shoulders pattern is clearly visible on the weekly time frame, sellers failed to hold price under the bearish pattern, after a false break below the neckline. The Waves/USD pair currently being contained below its 100-week moving average, traders should watch this indicator as it is a key gauge of market sentiment over the long-term.   Waves/USD Weekly Chart                                                  Source Tradingview   The monthly chart is also showing bullish potential, the recent heavy decline in the cryptocurrency market failed to produce a technical test of the important May 2017 trading, which has effectively created a bullish higher low on the monthly charts. Traders are currently probing the pair’s 12-month moving average for the first time since May of last year, which is certainly another encouraging sign.   Waves/USD monthly Chart                                                  Source Tradingview   Pattern Watch The large head and shoulders pattern seen on the weekly time frame is certainly a worrisome development. Bulls will ideally need to negate this pattern over the long term, which would effectively mean Waves/USD rallying to a new all-time price high. Stochastic & Momentum Indicators The monthly stochastic indicator has started to rise, which is a bullish signal, while the Momentum indicator is moving towards the neutral line after months of being in decline. The fact that there is a number of positive technical indicators for Waves both in the short, medium and long terms, coincides well with the expected fundamental catalysts in the coming year. Waves has the potential for a breakout in 2019. Waves Initiation Report: B-Market Opportunity7.5Ecosystem Structure6.5Token Economy9Token Performance7.5Core Team6.5Underlying Technology8Roadmap Progress6.5 7.4Final Grade And VerdictWaves has a lot of positive momentum building in the new year. The technological development remains the core strength of the project while its adoption and marketing operations present the biggest risks.How Waves executes its gaming strategy will show a lot about its future prospects. If it is able to create enough buzz and execute on its plans it might break into the top tier of blockchain ecosystems. The positive signs and the potential reward merit an upward score revision, but for now the overall grade remains a B-.We consider any token rated at B- (70%) or above as investable for the period which our report addresses. At this threshold, the project exhibits indicators of a favorable risk/reward ratio. To reach this threshold, the project must be fundamentally sound according to each factor we take into consideration - market opportunity, ecosystem structure, token economics, core team, underlying technology, and roadmap progress.Additional InformationWaves Website ﾿ Digital Asset Evaluation & Report (DARE) Methodology Introduction To The Framework The Digital Asset Report and Evaluation (DARE) is a standardized, dynamic approach to evaluating blockchain-based projects and identifying value in the associated crypto-assets. The report is the result of an exhaustive research and analysis process based on seven fundamental factors. Based on a weighted grading of these seven project fundamentals, a verdict and letter grade conclude each report, which is followed up with periodic updates, released over a quarterly basis. The analysis, verdict and accompanying grade reflect our opinion on the long-term value prospects of a given token based on the current state of project development and indicators of future commercial viability. The state of product development and indicators of commercial viability derive from an analysis of seven principle project fundamentals – market opportunity, ecosystem structure, token economics, core team, underlying technology, and roadmap progress. The underlying methodology involves both quantitative and qualitative analysis to ensure that we produce the most accurate picture possible at the time we conduct our evaluation. As a publication focused on assessing the long-term value and associated risks of a token project, we do not encourage the use of DARE as a short-term buy/sell indicator and this report does not represent financial advice. The Initiation Report Our first look at a token or cryptocurrency employs the Initiation report as a vehicle for delivery. Initiation reports provide readers a comprehensive analysis of the project fundamentals and draws hard conclusions from our assessment. The details of the Initiation report include a project summary, project introduction, presentation and analysis of seven key project fundamentals, concluding with a grade and final verdict derived from our weighted evaluation system. The Update Report Each initiated token or cryptocurrency will undergo a sequential reevaluation, with Update reports presenting the latest, most relevant analysis on a quarterly basis. The content contained in the update report is confined to analysis of changes in project fundamentals that influence the long-term value prospects of the token or cryptocurrency. Updated project grades and verdicts are provided based on a reassessment of the seven factors underlying our methodology. Grades assigned to tokens or cryptocurrencies in Update reports can reflect a change in our opinion of the project or provide a reaffirmation of the Initiation report. Methodology We consider the project-asset paradigm from seven key angles: market opportunity, ecosystem structure, token economics, core team, underlying technology, and roadmap progress. The evaluation examines the current state of the project, how it relates to the initially stated goals, and provides an analysis of each fundamental to approximate an accurate outlook for the future. These factors are all, in some way, codependent, so they are analyzed both individually and in the context of the overall scope and progress of the project. The evaluation process utilizes a proprietary scoring system comprised of weighted variables based on the follow project fundamentals. Market Opportunity Market Opportunity It is important to examine the market opportunity of each blockchain project to determine the prospects for future growth. The market opportunity(s) of a given project are assessed according to the addressable target market size and competitive advantages, if any, held by the project. The addressable market size is a reflection of the potential number of consumers and valuation of the target industry of the project. The competitive advantage(s) of the project and closest contenders both within and outside the blockchain space are weighted heavily in the analysis of the market opportunity. addressable target market size attractiveness of product existence of industry leaders moats or windows in market competitive advantage of project Ecosystem Development Ecosystem Development Blockchain projects are highly dependent on network effects. It does not matter if the project is very innovative, if its acceptance in the community and the market is low. This is especially important for network projects that are being built for future dApp development and rely on exponential ecosystem growth for success. We take a comparative look at variables such as number of active addresses, on chain transactions and number of community supporters to determine the health and potential of the ecosystem. The number of existing dApps and quality of partnerships are other variables taken into consideration to assess this fundamental. Of great importance to any ecosystem is the level of decentralization – to establish this, we ascertain the spread of assets, structure of governance and role of validators in the network. An ideal project will have proven partnerships and active dApps on its network, and a strong community of supporters and developers to foster expansion. The network architecture should also be in line with the target level of decentralization. In its entirety, the evaluation incorporates, but is not limited to: network analysis (dApps) comparative size and quality of community support social media asset allocation and on-chain data analysis governance Token Economics Examination of the token economics begins with a comparative analysis of the project market cap with respect to its relative position to other projects. Analysis also includes evaluating the role of the token, potential drivers of demand, and other factors that may lead to appreciation in value over time. Token Economics Assessment of the token economics primarily incorporates variables such as: market cap of project role of token and demand potential drivers of value relevant news incentive mechanisms Token Performance Token Performance Here we consider price volatility risks associated with underlying asset. Token performance is weighted slightly lower than the other fundamentals because of the more transient and dynamic nature of price movement, volume and liquidity. We look at the price and volume performance trends of the tokens in the context of the overall market, as well as, individual project dynamics. It is important to note that while volatility reflects risk, it is not necessarily an accurate indicator of the commercial viability of the project or long term value of the token. The ideal project will have an asset with positive long, medium and short-term price momentum, in addition to strong, steady volume on major exchanges with a low level of vulnerability to price swings. The evaluation incorporates, but is not limited to: trading data analysis relevant news social media token economics value modeling Core Team Core Team The core team takes into consideration the influence of the leaders and central developers on the prospects of a given project. Team competency and capability are assessed according to an analysis of their credentials and the espoused ambitions of the project. In addition to credentials that are backed up by strong evidence from a demonstrable track record of prior successes in previous business and engineering pursuits, the size and balance of the team are also assessed in relation to the goals and scope of the project. Moreover, the overall stability and sustained growth of the team are used as indicators of project viability. Variables which are factored into the core team score include, but are not limited to: team credentials changes to lead personnel size and balance of team evidence of instability team growth Underlying Technology Underlying Technology Technological development is a central aspect any blockchain-based project. Here we assess the functionality of technology and quality in comparison to competing projects. The ideal project will have relevant technological solutions, be keeping on track with the stated milestone schedule and be producing quality code. The evaluation incorporates, but is not limited to: network components (i.e. structure, consensus, throughput) GitHub activity pace of development relevancy of tech Roadmap Progress Roadmap Progress The espoused goals laid out by the team, the initial plan and updated iterations of the roadmap, represent crucial indicators of the ability of the team to deliver on promises in addition to providing a critical metric of commitment to the project. Timely delivery on milestones is assessed, in addition to upcoming catalysts or windows of opportunity that could prove crucial to the long-term project prospects. Accountability of the team is also taken into consideration through an evaluation of the team’s communications with the community, and is given additional weight when evidence is available to corroborate claims. roadmap evaluation upcoming catalysts team communications progress announcements upcoming milestones of competition ﾿ Disclaimer Crypto Briefing provides general information about cryptocurrency news, crowdfunded tech startups, and blockchain technology.

Billionaire Elon Musk Lauds Bitcoin As “Quite Brilliant,” Why Isn’t Tesla Going Crypto?

While Elon Musk has yet to formally delve into the Bitcoin space, he has long been a fabled member of the crypto community. Since finding his way to the headlines of the world’s media, the Tesla chief executive’s pro-innovation mindset has struck a chord with many enamored with cryptocurrencies. In fact, some say that Musk’s unsaid raison d’etre of bettering society at large, especially by amending the world’s most harrowing issues (climate change, confinement on Earth, financial inequality), lines up with the goals held by many cryptocurrency insiders. Thus, some have even argued that Musk could be Satoshi Nakamoto. Sahil Gupta, a former intern at Musk’s second multi-billion dollar enterprise SpaceX, once infamously claimed that Musk’s brief mentionings of cryptography, economics, the C++ computing language, along with the entrepreneur overarching vision scream Satoshi. The South African-Canadian entrepreneur has done his best to keep his mouth zipped regarding his candidacy for the Satoshi title, but that hasn’t stopped him from talking about cryptocurrencies. We had @elonmusk on the latest episode of @ARKInvest's podcast! He had a few things to say about Bitcoin. "Paper money is going away and cryptocurrency is a far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper." – Elon Muskhttps://t.co/U5qOnM7nBo — Yassine Elmandjra (@yassineARK) February 19, 2019 Bitcoin Is “Quite Brilliant” While the crypto market has remained in a depressed state, save for Monday’s jaw-dropping rally, stars have begun to descend on this industry. Weeks ago, NewsBTC reported that a mass of celebrities, including the Spice Girl’s Mel B, Johnny Depp, Madonna, and Lionel Messi, had some involvement in cryptocurrency. More recently, Jack Dorsey of both Twitter and Square took to Joe Rogan to claim that the native currency of the Internet is likely to be Bitcoin. Related Reading: Twitter CEO Loves Lightning on Bitcoin: is it the Future of Fast, Instant Payments? And just on Tuesday, Elon Musk, the most well-known Silicon Valley guru, took to the New York-based ARK Invest’s “FYI” Podcast to touch on Tesla’s plans, autonomy, other innovations, such as crypto. Per The Block, who compiled his comments regarding cryptocurrencies, Musk made his comments with explicitly bullish tones. After discussing Tesla’s most recent advancements, the hosts of the podcast, the CEO and an analyst at ARK, a disruptive innovation-centric investment group, took a brief aside. They asked Musk if he agrees with Dorsey’s recent comments on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies at large. Interestingly, Musk responded with an answer, albeit somewhat cursory. He tacitly agreed, noting that the “Bitcoin structure was (is) quite brilliant,” adding that Ethereum and “maybe some of the others” have merit too. Musk did admit that he isn’t too enamored with Bitcoin’s Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism, noting that it is energy intensive. Yet, he explained that fundamentally, crypto assets are great as they bypass currency controls, especially in nations embroiled in financial and political turmoil, like Venezuela. He added that cryptocurrencies are also a “far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper,” subsequently quipping that he’s sure of this “without a doubt.” In spite of all this, he made it clear that Tesla isn’t going to foray into the crypto space in any capacity, noting that it would be a good use of his firm’s resources to prop up an offering. Musk’s abrash comments quickly elicited responses from each and every corner of the crypto space. Matt Odell, a long-time pro-Bitcoin coder and industry personality, joked that the comments “confirmed” his bias that cryptocurrencies could oust banknotes. Changpeng “CZ” Zhao of Binance noted that eventually, “[Musk] will join the brotherhood,” adding that he is unequivocally sure that the businessman will take up a crypto mantle. CZ notably called on the Tesla founder to take up the Lightning Network Trust Chain torch last week, just days after Twitter’s Dorsey openly lauded Bitcoin in dozens of tweets. Crypto Is Better Than Banknotes? While Musk made notable acknowledgments in his brief appearance on ARK’s “FYI,” what stood out to many crypto investors was his thoughts on the dichotomy between banknotes & physical cash, and crypto assets, not centralized e-money. For a brief recap, Musk simply stated that he is unequivocally sure that crypto, whether it be Bitcoin, Ethereum, or otherwise, is a “far better” medium of exchange than pieces of paper. Shocking, right? This may be deemed hearsay by pundits of the legacy world, but the world is already adopting digital mediums of exchange. Per previous reports from this outlet, Arthur Hayes of BitMEX took to his company blog to claim that platforms like WeChat Pay and AliPay have already begun to take over China’s financial system. Who’s to say that cryptocurrencies, a decentralized counterpart to these systems that tout their own currencies, cannot have a similar impact on society at large. The fact of the matter is that these digital payments systems, whether decentralized or centralized, offer benefits that cash/plastic cannot. Case in point, payments on both Bitcoin and WeChat Pay are cheap, rapid, and relatively secure. But arguably, decentralized payment ecosystems, which are non-sovereign, private, immutable, and non-censorable, are even better than their centralized peers, which is likely what Musk was touching on.

In the Daily: Elon Musk Talks Bitcoin, Shanghai’s Fudan University, Xdat Exchange

In this edition of The Daily we cover some largely supportive remarks the famous entrepreneur Elon Musk has made about Bitcoin, the latest academic institution to launch a blockchain R&D center, and a new offering from Malta-based exchange Xdat. Also Read: Bank of Spain Report: Bitcoin Is a Solution for a System Without Censorship Elon Musk Talks Bitcoin The founder of Tesla and Spacex, Elon Musk, is once again making headlines about crypto. He recently went on the Ark Invest podcast to discuss the future of autonomous driving technologies.

Musk commented: “I think the Bitcoin structure is quite brilliant. There seems like there is some merit to Ethereum as well, and obviously others. But I’m not sure if it’s a good use of Tesla resources to get involved in cryptos … We’re really just trying to accelerate the advances of sustainable energy. One downside of Bitcoin is … computationally it’s quite energy intensive. There has to be some kind of constraint on the creation of crypto. It’s very energy intensive to create the incremental bitcoin at this point … It bypasses currency controls. Paper money is going away, and crypto is a far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper. That’s for sure.” Shanghai’s Fudan University Launches Research Center Shanghai’s Fudan University has become the latest academic institution to launch a blockchain R&D center. Founded in 1905, Fudan is one of the most prestigious and selective schools for higher learning in China. The Shanghai Blockchain Engineering Technology Research Center is tasked with carrying out basic research in the field, developing demo applications in collaboration with the broader industry, and training talent to serve Shanghai’s economic development. Last month the University of California, Berkeley announced the formation of its own blockchain-focused startup accelerator program, the Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator. This program is meant to help aspiring entrepreneurs create high-value ventures in the blockchain space with industry guidance from Silicon Valley. Xdat Exchange Lists 18 Trading Pairs Xdat, a new Malta-based cryptocurrency trading exchange, has announced the listing of 18 trading pairs. These comprise ETH/BTC, BCH/BTC, EOS/BTC, ETC/BTC, XRP/BTC, DASH/BTC, LTC/BTC, BTC/ETH, BCH/ETH, EOS/ETH, ETC/ETH, XRP/ETH, DASH/ETH, LTC/ETH, BTC/TUSD, ETH/TUSD, BTC/EURO, and ETH/EURO. The company has further plans to add other pairs over time. The exchange is compliant with Maltese regulations for KYC and AML procedures and caters to both retail and institutional investors. Its fiat gateway allows users to deposit funds in 12 major currencies: USD, GBP, JPY, HKD, CHF, AUD, NOK, SEK, DKK, CZK, PLN, and HUF. This selection is meant to eliminate the need for involvement of a foreign bank for the supported options and allows users to work solely with Xdat’s bank. “Xdat is on a mission to address the key problems of existing exchanges … including lack of flow of new capital, lack of trust, no approach for mass adoption, and high fragmentation,” said CEO Prashanth Swaminathan. “Our aim is to bring crypto to all. To that end, we will be working closely with our community and using their support and feedback to make our interface more user-friendly and trading as streamlined as possible.” What do you think about today’s news tidbits?
