Arthur Hayes of BitMEX Thinks 2019 Will Be the ‘Year of Reckoning’ for Top ICO Tokens

According to BitMEX’s latest newsletter, there are around 12 ICO projects that have been able to raise more than USD $50 million but are yet be listed on any known “secondary crypto exchanges”. To be more specific, the tokens that were enumerated in the aforementioned newsletter include Telegram, Filecoin, DFINITY, Polkadot, tZero, Basis, Orchid Protocol, Rootstock, Algorand, Cosmos, Oasis Labs. In this regard, Arthur Hayes, the CEO of BitMEX was noted as saying: “These deals have massive valuations, and many of the most venerated token funds took down large chunks. It is unclear when, if ever, these deals will ever list on the secondary market.” More On The Matter Quite recently, Hayes provided a commentary on the state of the crypto market right now as well as acknowledged that most (or nearly all) of the aforementioned token offerings do not really possess any real value of their own. Add to this, the fact that the federal government is currently cracking down on the ICO space, Hayes said that: “Given the large amount of token supply out there, who will buy this shit?” However, the answer to this question essentially is that some of the above listed altcoins will be required by development teams such as Rootstock etc. Final Take In rounding out this article, we can see that when looked at closely, the token analysis of ICOs done by BitMEX has also found that a majority of the projects that raised a large amount of money initially, have already sold a majority of their Ether tokens (with only a total of about 25% still remaining in the possession of the dev firms).

Where the dysfunctional, decentralized community of Ethereans go to drink the kool-aidOnce a year, Devcon, the biggest conference for blockchain developers, rolls around; and distinctly, it’s unlike any other crypto conference. Its attendees laud the annual get-together as really just a big family reunion.Devcon attracts representatives from almost every project in the cryptocurrency sector both within and without the nuclear family of Ethereum. It’s the watering hole where the weird cousins twice removed, the uncles you’ve never heard of, and the foster kid from the neighbors next door congregate to catch up and learn about the new things that the other guy is building. Indeed, it does seem like it is a big happy dysfunctional family. And nobody seems to know how to spell “build”.This year, the foster kid from next door showed up — and he brought a scaling solution to the potluck.EthermintThe Cosmos Network gave a talk presenting its blockchain application framework, the Cosmos SDK, for building Web3-compatible pegged sidechains, with an added bonus — blockchain interoperability.The talk, recorded on YouTube, by Cosmos’ core developer, Christopher Goes articulates the details of how the Cosmos Network provides the technology to do this.

Chinese Blockchain Consortium FISCO To Create Own Blockchain Protocol

Chinese Blockchain Consortium FISCO To Create Own Blockchain Protocol Although leading Distributed Ledger Technologies like Hyperledger Fabric and R3 Corda have taken the route of coinless private consortium, FISCO BCOS, an opensource platform from China, has decided to be coinless and open to the public. From Nov. 12th to Nov. 14th, BCOS will make its international debut at Singapore Fintech Festival. That means a public permissioned blockchain so that only accredited organizations can host nodes, but members of the public can use the functionality. This is reinforced by the consensus mechanism which is Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT). Although blockchain technology has long been esteemed for its unique ability in rendering consensus in recording transactions, it is also thought to have low concurrency, long delays, and probability-dependent completion. In today's highly competitive business environment, these are weaknesses that need to be overcome. FISCO wants to solve this problem through BCOS. Features Of BCOS The Performance for public blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum is known to be very slow. But that’s because they are permissionless. By comparison, BCOS which is permissioned has a rate of more than a thousand transactions per second (TPS) with split-second confirmation. Hyperledger Fabric can get as high as 2,250 TPS, and R3’s Corda and Digital Asset can reach more than 6,000 TPS. Furthermore, the BCOS platform enables concurrent computation and a multichain architecture with cross-chain interactions. Different applications could hence reside on different chains. Other blockchains have multichain architectures such as Cosmos and Polkadot. Cosmos is currently in the process of going live. To ensure privacy BCOS supports Zero-Knowledge Proofs which allow users to reveal information without sharing private data. For example, a company could find out that a user is over 18 without knowing their age. Additionally, BCOS supports homomorphic encryption. The latter allows calculations to be done using encrypted data without the nodes having access to the data. Other privacy aspects include group and ring signatures. The system has observatory nodes which can be used by regulators and auditors. Since the launch of BCOS, many use cases have been revealed, ranging from finance and arbitration to copyrights and recruitment. BCOS has promoted innovative initiatives and ideas, including cross-consortium collaborations, Open Chain Ecosystem, and Distributed Business Model.

What is Cosmos Network (ATOM) | A Beginner’s Guide to the Internet of Blockchains

To get into what the Cosmos Network does will take unravelling the components and the problems they solve. In a nutshell, Cosmos Network is an internet of blockchains.   Cosmos networks together all kinds of blockchains by leveraging the advantages of Tendermint and the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC). Projects pegged or built into the Cosmos Network are able to exchange tokens between each other natively. Think of atomic swaps but for everyone!   Altogether, Cosmos is a network for better interoperability between blockchains of all types. How the Cosmos Network Works Before jumping into what is possible on the Cosmos Network it’s important to first visit what made this achievable, Tendermint. Tendermint Tendermint is a launch pad for building blockchain applications on top of. To understand a bit of what that means, know that there are three conceptual layers to a blockchain: networking, consensus, and the application layer. Tendermint prepackages the networking and consensus layers so that teams can focus on their applications and bypass hundreds of hours of complex code. The basic Tendermint software stack     Tendermint is not a blockchain itself, rather an open-source developers tool. It is a customizable foundation for blockchain applications.   A particular caveat is that Tendermint’s consensus is a proof-of-stake (PoS) algorithm. This can reconfigure to other forms of PoS like a Delegated PoS or Proof of Authority consensus, for example.   Favouring the PoS model is a large part of what enables Tendermint’s interoperability along with instant finality, thousands of transactions per second, and increased security. Connecting the Dots with IBC The next piece in the Cosmos Network is the Inter-Blockchain Communications protocol (IBC). This software links together the zones and hubs within the network and allows the exchange of tokens between heterogeneous chains.   It’s important to note that Cosmos refers to the individual applications as heterogeneous chains. This is because each chain or application within the network has their own sovereignty and layer architecture. In short, this means IBC can connect chains despite each one having their own software stack (rooted in Tendermint) and independent governance.   The main advantage of IBC is the exchange of tokens between chains. Tokens from one chain can be represented on another. Here’s an example, Mia wants to send 25 tokens from chain A to chain B. To do so, Mia’s 25 tokens on chain A lock with a proof sent to chain B. Next, chain B watches to see if more than two thirds of chain A’s validators have signed the proof that Mia’s 25 tokens remain locked on their original chain. When the proof is valid, Mia gets 25 tokens on chain B.   Overall, IBC is the tunnelling and mechanics that allows chains to connect to each other. The Network: Hubs and Zones Now that we’ve covered what Tendermint and IBC have, how does Cosmos actually build an internet of blockchains?   The solution: network hubs.   Hubs on the network act as the central ledgers for each of the individual chains also called zones. Hubs are the ledgers for the token swapping between the zones.   Without hubs in the network, Cosmos would be a series of daisy-chained blockchains. The exchange of tokens between blockchains of this type puts a lot of pressure on trusting the source of the token, in particular, their validators. This issue compounds as tokens move along the network from chain A to chain B to chain C, and so on.  Each time requiring the receiving chain to trust all sets of validators before them exponentially.   Hubs in the network alleviate this by having zones connect to them, instead of directly to each other. If zones limit their connections to only other hubs, then the risk of double spending or tokens being unfrozen is dramatically reduced. Zones do not need to trust other zones directly or the ones that passed on tokens before them. They only need to account for trusting the hubs. A simplified look at the Cosmos Hub and zones The first hub in the Cosmos Network is the Cosmos Hub, a Proof-of-Stake blockchain layered over Tendermint. To fuel the Cosmos Hub, there are two tokens, Atoms and Photons. Cool names aside, the Atom is the staking coin used for governance on the Cosmos Hub. The fee coin in the ecosystem is the Photon, used to move tokens around the network as well as pay fees. The Missing Link You may be thinking up to this point that anything in the Cosmos Network would have to play by the rules of the Tendermint Core. Namely that only PoS blockchains can participate in the network since Tendermint is at the core of each of the zones.   The good news is that the Cosmos team has also been thinking about this and did something about it. To understand what the challenge was, there are two categories of chains that the Cosmos Network defines based on finality.   Firstly, fast-finality chains. These are the easy chains since fast-finality chains are already compatible with IBC. PoS blockchains can use IBC just as Tendermint does and directly connect into hubs and zones.   The less easy chains are probabilistic-finality chains. These blockchains, like PoW chains, are instead layered over a fast-finality consensus like Tendermint Core and create a Peg-Zone. So far the Cosmos Network is going to create an Ethereum Peg-Zone called Ethermint and admits that creating Peg-Zones for every probabilistic-finality blockchain is “theoretically possible” but challenging. About Cosmos Network There’s a bit of a backstory to the Cosmos Network. However, the condensed version is that the network was largely built by the same team that engineered its foundational component, Tendermint Core.   All in Bits, the company behind Tendermint, is now building out the Cosmos network under the umbrella of the Interchain Foundation (ICF). The ICF was founded to help “facilitate the next generation of blockchain technology” with a goal to build an internet of blockchains.   The team working on the Cosmos Network is fairly large and lead by the cofounders Ethan Buchman and Jae Kwon (not at all affiliated with the rapper J-Kwon, sadly).   The Cosmos Hub Atom token distribution Both the ICF and All in Bits have been proposed to receive portions of the Atom tokens on the launch of the main net. The tokens All in Bits and the ICF receive will bootstrap the development of the network and foster its growth over a two-year vesting schedule. Coin Supply and Sustainability For now, the Atom coin will not be tradable until the main net launches. However, the public and private rounds of fundraising have concluded but the token supply is still yet to be decided. The proposed token distribution is 75% for Fundraisers, 10% for the Interchain Foundation, 10% for All in Bits Inc, and 5% for seed investors.   ***Please note that currently traded tokens $ATOM and $CMOS are not tokens native to the Cosmos Network. I would have some caution about trading those two low-cap coins, possible imposters. Conclusion With some time still before the main net launch, Cosmos Network is developing towards their goals and are testing components like on-chain governance within their test net. The ambition of the project is impressive, however, they seem to not be rushing into anything. They are taking the necessary steps to plug together the various components like Tendermint and IBC.   Adoption of Tendermint Core by developers will be vital to the growth of the network. As well as getting other popular coins pegged into the ecosystem.   Overall, the project is still nascent and has lots of pavement left on their roadmap. Cosmos Networks wants to wrangle in the siloed chains of the world into one beautiful internet of blockchains. It’s a lofty goal but might be a vital idea for progressing blockchain into another phase of adoption and usage.

Blockchain Interoperability: a Necessity for Effective Adoption

No doubts, blockchain technology continues to revolutionize several sectors and industries owing to its decentralized feature which eliminates the need for intermediaries and centralized control. Blockchain technology since Bitcoin has been able to prove its ability to provide a framework that engenders transparency and an advanced level of security. The tech paved the way for new possibilities and functionality disrupting modes of transactions and creating a new decentralized means of exchange- cryptocurrencies. Currently, there are over 1900 cryptocurrencies already globally operating based on information provided by CoinMarketCap with several exchanges and public chains also operational. These exchanges serve as platforms for trading the various cryptocurrencies depending on the blockchain platform they are based although mostly Ethereum. The Interoperability Problem  As a result, several blockchain projects began building based on Bitcoin and Ethereum with Ethereum being the most popular and widely used. Ethereum gained mass adoption due to its smart contracts feature and the ability to develop decentralized apps (dApps). Several blockchain projects adopted the Ethereum ERC20 standards in developing their tokens likewise most exchanges chose to list ERC20 tokens. This in time made Ethereum the standard for public chains accounting for 82% of the tokens in the marketplace. Projects found it easier and less time consuming developing an ERC20 wallet. However, though Bitcoin and Ethereum stand as the most popular chains, other projects also developed their own public chains running their distinct infrastructure and technological framework. This is where interoperability becomes an issue. With the several tokens already circulating most especially the ERC20 tokens and vast number of blockchain projects, a lot of these still aren’t able to effectively interact and connect with each other. Projects like Civic for instance when used, cannot connect with the interface of another project like OmiseGo despite both tokens being ERC-based. There still exists a problem of interconnectivity between projects on the same public chain. The problem even becomes more magnified with projects on different public chains. Ideally, interoperability connotes the capacity to transact and share information easily across different blockchain systems. Users on a different blockchain platform should be able to send and transact with other users on another platform and information shared should be readable and usable. For blockchain to be widely adopted and truly effective in its applications, there needs to be a bridge that will allow for full interoperability creating a universal ecosystem. A user who has registered an account on a blockchain platform should be able to easily transact on another platform without having to go through lengthy processes of registering different accounts on the different platforms. A Cross-Chain Solution In light of this major problem of interoperability, different blockchain projects have begun developing bridges that would enhance interaction among public chains. Projects like Cosmos, Ark and Aion are examples that have started implementing frameworks that will connect different chains and allow them interact with each other. However, another project worthy of attention is Metaverse, a public chain based in China already providing Digital Assets and Identity services on the blockchain. Metaverse recently introduced an idea called Cross Chain Token Swap. The framework allows users to swap tokens from one public chain with another from a different public chain. This would mean, tokens that based on Metaverse MST standard can be easily swapped with tokens based on Ethereum ERC20 standard. Considering Ethereum has faced a number of attacks which threaten assets of users on the blockchain, projects might consider swapping or switching to other public chains for better security or faster transaction processing. If this switch is to occur, then it has to be easy and with no major complexities. Metaverse claims to provide a well secured platform that can adequately deal with potential threats and also an easy to use framework that does not require business owners to learn the Solidity program making operations on the platform much more user friendly. Interoperability is a key necessity for blockchain tech and its applications to be effectively adopted globally. A world where different public chains can truly interact without unnecessary barriers is what truly emphasizes decentralization. If this is achieved, it will unlock a whole new world of possibilities and diverse functionalities.

Prosecutors Call for Ten Year Jail Term for Karpeles Over Mt. Gox Embezzlement

Mark Karpeles, the CEO of Mt Gox, is currently being accused of embezzlement by Japanese authorities. The prosecutors of the court case are seeking a 10-year sentence for the ex-CEO, which commanded the now-defunct Mt Gox exchange. This comes in the midst of the extension announced for civil rehabilitation claims. Japanese prosecutors say as much by alleging that Mark Karpeles's actions "played a great role in totally destroying the confidence of Bitcoin users. The actions in question are that he allegedly embezzled a total of 341 million yen (US$3 million) of customer funds from the Mt Gox account, moving it to his personal account between September and December 2013, while padding the numbers on his company's trading system to cover up the loss. Karpeles has sworn his innocence and says the money, moved in the last four months of 2013, was meant to serve as only a temporary loan. He also argued, earlier in the trial, that the funds in question did not belong to clients but were his now-defunct company’s revenue. In response to the former CEO’s statement, the prosecutors at the court said: There was no documentation of loans, and there was no intention of paying back the money. The prosecutors went further to demand a harsh sentence for Karpelès. According to the Japanese prosecutors, the Mt. Gox Chief betrayed his clients’ confidence and misused most of their funds. The ex-CEO is currently confined to Japan as a condition of his bail and has been answering in freedom. He has often protested his innocence and publicly appealed to the industry. It remains unknown when the trail will conclude, the publication added.

Tezos [XTZ] Story – XTZ and Waves Highest Gainers

As many crypto enthusiasts have started to notice, there is a slight attempt by the bulls to get Bitcoin – BTC against the US Dollar up back on its feet. Read: Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis: Are Bulls Back on Their Feet? Bitcoin bull Mike Novogratz insists that bitcoin won’t fall to the $80 level despite signs that the bear market could persist. In an interview with Bloomberg, he reiterated that bitcoin will become digital gold and that revolutions don’t happen overnight. If the supportive trend line starts to gain momentum and hold-off any waves of bears that tend to tank the value downward, a ripple-effect could present itself impacting all following altcoins as the pioneer cryptocoin always does. Among the top 20, the highest gainer in the last 24-hours without a doubt is Tezos [XTS]. Per time of writing, the pair XTS/USD is changing hands at $0.4197 – marking an increase of 13.23%.

Spallanzani (@JohnSpall247) September 14, 2018 What is Tezos (XTZ)? Tezos is a decentralized computing platform for Turing-complete smart contracts. Tezos has three key features. (1) “Liquid Proof-of-Stake” consensus – there is a relatively low barrier to consensus participation and delegation is not required. (2) Smart contract verification – Tezos invented the Michelson programming language that allows formal proofs of contract properties for better contract security. (3) On-chain governance – all aspects of governance are contained in the platform: voting on proposed protocol upgrades, paying developers and implementing the upgrades. – Via Kraken’s blog post – Kraken Listing XTZ Blog Post Right on its tail is Waves which is welcoming a daily price hoist of 10.01% against the US Dollar reaching the mark of $1.85.
