Not to Miss Out #2

Briefly on the new EIP for Constantinople, generalized mining initiative and Global Open Network launch in Japan

  • Buterin revealed CREATE2, an EIP 1014 for the Constantinople release — ‘a keystone for the state channel framework of off-chain work.’

This minimizes on-chain operations to those necessary for validating the cooperative effort/communications and not performing unnecessary calculations on the blockchain itself.

  • Japanese MUFG (payment network services) and Akama (high-speed content and apps e-transfer) are launching Global Open Network:

The new company will utilize MUFG’s presence in the payment business and Akamai’s intelligent edge platform, which offers world-class speed and security, with the aim of providing an open payment network in Japan based on new blockchain technology by the first half of 2020.

CoinFund and Placeholder [funds, that became partners for the case — ed. note] have both spoken previously on the use of generalized mining as a differentiated strategy for cryptofunds to directly engage networks and generate return

Chinese Mining Giant Trades First Day Flat as Crypto Markets Dump 5%

Things are not looking rosy for Chinese bitcoin mining giant Canaan after day one of trading and they could get far worse today. BTC has dumped almost 4.5% in 24 hours and crypto markets have shed $10 billion in total so a red Friday is about to begin. Mining Shares End Flat on Day 1 The long-awaited IPO for Chinese crypto mining hardware manufacturer Canaan kicked off with a $90 million listing. Bloomberg reported that the Hangzhou based firm sold 10 million American Depository Shares (ADS) for $9 apiece on Wednesday. An ADS is a USD denominated equity share of a foreign-based company available for purchase on an American stock exchange. The valuation was way less than the $400 million slated by the company in October in Hong Kong. Additionally, its lead underwriter, Credit Suisse Group, pulled out before the IPO was launched leaving Citi, China Renaissance, and CMB International Capital to run the books. Three Arrows Capital CEO Su Zhu noted that the shares actually opened at $13 but fell back to $9.5 pretty quickly. Canaan IPO has begun trading IPO price was $9, it opened at $13 and has traded down to $9.5 Worth watching pic.twitter.com/xKn2c2GwgU — Su Zhu (@zhusu) November 21, 2019 By the end of the first day’s trading, the stock had fallen to just below the initial price at $8.99 according to Bloomberg. The report continued to add that there was a spike of around 44% which would have pumped prices to $13 initially. The price actually spent most of the first day below $9 but recovered to retouch it by the close of trading on Thursday. Friday will be interesting but if crypto markets are anything to go by, Canaan has a rough day ahead as shares could dip further into the red. Crypto Markets Dump $10 Billion Since this time yesterday total crypto market capitalization has shrunk by 5%, or just over $10 billion. Bitcoin has led the selloff plunging through support at $8,000 in a slide down to an intraday low of $7,400 according to Tradingview.com. BTC has since recovered to settle just over $7,600 at the moment which is a key support it must hold to prevent a larger collapse down into the high $6,000s. The $6,400 range was a strong level last year but bitcoin has spent very little time there in 2019 so could easily sink right through it. Overall sentiment has been bearish all week as the king of crypto sheds all gains from its China induced pump late last month. Since it hit that high just below five figures, BTC has dumped 23% in less than a month. Canaan is likely to have a red Friday if its price does anything close to what bitcoin has done over the past 24 hours. Will Canaan shares dump alongside BTC? Add your comments below.
