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 Extends Successful Energy Trading Trial

Power Ledger, an Australian company providing blockchain-based solutions for tracking energy consumption, has announced the continuation of its successful energy trading trial in Western Australia.  In partnership with Synergy and Western Power, producers and distributors of electrical power in the Western Australian region, Power Ledger began a trial in November 2018 to track renewable energy trading between 18 households in Fremantle, Australia. Through the platform, users were able to sell excess rooftop solar energy in real-time while monitoring electricity usage in 30-minute intervals, instead of the usual 30-60 day billing cycle. Western Power’s smart meter data was fed into Power Ledger’s blockchain trading platform and then exported to Synergy’s billing system, to ensure a secure and accurate recording of the energy trading.  Since the trial started, Power Ledger has processed almost 50,000 transactions on its platform per month and tracked over 4 megawatt hours of peer-to-peer renewable energy trades. Power Ledger Executive Chairman Dr Jemma Green shared insight on the motivations behind the initiative, focusing on the environmental implications of the trial. “Power Ledger’s platform has created a renewable energy marketplace, enabling Fremantle residents to set their own prices and trade solar energy generated from their rooftops with neighbours that don’t have solar,” she explained, before pinning down the benefits of the platform: “Peer-to-peer trading unlocks the potential for customers connected to the electricity grid to have more choice on how they manage their power use, by providing residents with the choice to access renewable energy that’s locally generated at the right time of day.” As a solar-focused platform, Power Ledger’s goal is to let more people capitalize on its benefits. “Using Power Ledger’s platform, peer-to-peer energy trading gives consumers without solar power infrastructure, access to local, low-cost and low carbon energy,” she emphasized. The first phase of the trial was instrumental in gaining insight into the profile of customers who could benefit from peer-to-peer energy trading, as well as setting the right pricing model. The second phase will build on this knowledge by onboarding more testers, with the goal of identifying all challenges that could prevent mass adoption of peer-to-peer tariffs in the entirety of Western Australia. Power Ledger has recently come out of a successful trial with KEPCO in Japan, as previously reported by Crypto Briefing.   The post Power Ledger Extends Successful Energy Trading Trial appeared first on Crypto Briefing.
