Does News Still Matter in 2018?

Does News Still Matter in 2018?

On October 29, Finrazor introduced News Influence Score (NIS) – the first tool which turns the unguided instances of assets’ mentions in media into a measurable parameter. We are going to explain the working principle of the first of its kind feature in details and provide some illustrative use cases

NIS by Finrazor is as an indicator reflecting an anomalous surge or decline of public interest in a given asset. NIS doesn’t take into account the sentiment, reflecting mere instances of mentions.

We believe news to be measurable items, affecting the cryptoverse either directly or not. In order to treat them as indicators, we analyze more than 180 media sources and calculate how the number of mentions of the particular asset changes in real time. We compare the total number of news on the asset within the last 7 days to the number of its mentions as of the given date and show the percentage ratio. The NIS value is reflected via a blue line on the 7d price and volume chart for every asset.

Here is the NIS methodology.

In part, they say that the news background has an impact on the asset’s rates. Nobody knows is it true, but now with NIS it is possible to track it.

This tool is aimed to solve the problem of the lack of balance over the news background because the popular assets are covered in media a lot compared to the least popular ones provoking the disbalance.

The possible correlation with the currency rate is one of the NIS applications. The feature may be also useful as:

  • an additional indicator for one’s needs
  • means to catch up with what is really on something
  • the evidence to prove one’s statements
  • a way to learn which types of news lead to the most significant informational background moves
  • a tool to show how important news affects the news background of a given project, etc.

We have collected the data for October, and soon will provide a brief summary of such comparisons in a series of materials. The first will raise the issue whether news background correlates with an asset’s rates.

Stay tuned!

Power Ledger Takes Heat For Incentivizing Malicious Reprobate Bounty Hunters

One of the biggest name in Australia’s blockchain ecosystem, Power Ledger, has been drawing criticism for their decision to compensate bounty hunters that have “successfully” driven the public’s interest in their project. This is because the company utilized bounty hunters to drive interest in its bitcoin-like currency. The currency had fallen 90 percent in value over the past 12 months. Some investors may have also made exaggerated claims. This due to their need for free allocations of the currency. Power Ledger’s chairman and co-founder, Dr. Jemma Green, said that the company couldn’t verify the designs used by their community to share their projects. “Rewards were offered to community members to share our project with their own networks. The means by which they did so were outside of our control, and we made it clear that our core supporters who believed in the project and the future of renewable energy were the main audiences for this program,” she said. Peter Williams, a partner at Deloitte Consulting focusing on technology, said implementing a financial incentive, or bounty, for people to develop initial coin offerings could lead to unethical conduct. The Power Ledger Platform is a trustless and transparent energy trading platform built to support Citizen Utilities. These are participants who generate, consume, and transact electricity energy applications. There are two tokens that run this platform: Sparkz and the Power Ledger Token (POWR). Sparkz is a frictionless trading token that is used to buy and sell the kW/h of electricity smoothly. It is created for a specific deal, pegged to the local currency upon creation, and destroyed upon redemption for fiat or POWR. POWR is the ERC-20 utility token purchased and licensed by energy producers to fuel the Power Ledger Ecosystem, running smart contracts that broker trades, distribute power, create Sparkz, and more. Also, Power Ledger has attracted the interest of Tesla founder Elon Musk. They have serious plans to revolutionize the retail electricity industry. Musk tests many of his prototypes, including the famed Tesla solar roof, in Australia. Nature and market needs make Australia and southeast Asia primary candidates for an energy revolution. This is what makes Power Ledger’s strategic positioning there important. The market is ready: 20% of Australian rooftops now carry solar panels.
