HitBTC Massively Lowers Its Trading Fees

Coinspeaker HitBTC Massively Lowers Its Trading FeesHitBTC which is a leading cryptocurrency exchange just announced in a press release that they are lowering the trading fees on their platform to a “market-leading lows”. By doing this, HitBTC has repositioned as one of the most beneficent places to trade crypto. The exchange has come up with a “maker-taker” fee tier system. This is a very common practice in the industry which, basically, means that the users who generate more liquidity, get rewarded.“When a user places a buy or sell order that is outside of the existing range on the order books, they are in effect making liquidity. By doing this they are paving the road for further asset movement on the exchange, whereas, if a user completes an order that already exists on the books, they are in effect taking liquidity off the board,” reads the release.Considering all this, HitBTC wants all of its users to receive benefits when trading with them, so they massively lowered the fees for operations under 10 BTC. Previously, the fees for makers were 0,1% and 0,2% for takers, but now these figures have been lowered to 0,07 to both. That makes it a massive rate cut, especially for takers.Here is an explanatory image of how the tier system is going to work:Photo: HitBTC BlogHowever, to be eligible to use this fee system, you have to have an account with 30 days of trading volume. That’s not 30 days of account existence, but 30 days of actual trading. Also, only upgraded accounts can apply to this tier system. As for starter and general accounts are left with the old fee system which is a fixed rate of 0,1% for Makers and 0,2% for Takers, as mentioned above. HitBTC backs it’s incentive by saying that they want to “reward community members for high volume trading.”Example: The user buys 15 EOS for 1 LTC and at the time of the trade 1 EOS is equivalent to 0.001 BTC. This means 0.015 BTC will then be added to their 30-day trade volume total.HitBTC is one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges and started operating as early as 2013. The exchange offers more than 800 crypto trading pairs. HitBTC has a daily volume of almost $700 million and the most used trading pair is BTC/USDT with a daily volume of $241 million. It also offers trading pairs with cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, Litecoin, Tron, EOS, and others.HitBTC Massively Lowers Its Trading Fees

TomoZ goes live: a frictionless protocol for paying transaction fees in any token issued over TomoChain

TomoChain announced it has launched TomoZ, an on-chain protocol that aims to improve how people pay transaction fees when sending tokens. The ‘Z’ in TomoZ stands for zero friction. Typically, blockchains have always made users pay transaction fees using the native blockchain’s currency, creating additional friction. Often this means that users collect dust in various wallets designed to support cryptocurrencies built on different blockchains. The goal of TomoZ is to eliminate the need for end-users to collect dust and to improve the experience of sending tokens. For example, if you send an ERC20 token from one Ethereum wallet to another, you have to hold ETH in order to pay gas fees or transaction fees. There was some discussion back in February 2018 on Reddit about a proposed change for Ethereum that would allow users to pay fees with ERC20 tokens. However, this idea hasn’t been implemented yet. Up until this point, this same transaction fee model applied to TomoChain and TRC20 tokens. With the introduction of TomoZ, however, users can now pay for transaction fees in a new token standard: TRC21. For anyone using TRC21 tokens, it’s possible to pay all on-chain fees with the token they are sending. In other words, there is no need to hold TOMO in order to send TRC21 tokens on TomoChain. 🌟The #TomoZ mainnet is LIVE now! Issue your own #TRC21 token in minutes, and let token holders pay transaction fees in the token itself! ⚡️TomoIssuer: https://t.co/Tfl2yttNxW⚡️How to deploy a TRC21 by #TomoWallet: https://t.co/9VNbyQwghC pic.twitter.com/HzRN3UJdS5 — TomoChain (@TomoChainANN) August 20, 2019 TRC21 Token Creation and Issuance Although end-users don’t necessarily need to hold TOMO, TomoZ is structured so that it requires the TRC21 token issuer to pay TOMO to cover fees required by TomoChain’s masternodes. This is done through a TomoIssuer contract. Another goal of TomoZ is to simplify the process of token creation and issuance. TomoZ provides a dashboard for any token issuer who wants to issue a TRC21 token on TomoChain. To issue a token, only a few basic parameters (token supply, token name and minimum transaction fee) need to be configured. No coding experience is required to launch a new token. The project team has uploaded a tutorial video showing how it’s possible to create and issue a TRC21 token on TomoChain’s testnet. TomoZ also takes into account the possibility that TRC21 token issuers might not have paid a sufficient amount of TOMO to cover all end-user transaction fees. In this scenario, an end-user would have to revert back to the old transaction fee payment method by depositing more TOMO to the TomoIssuer contract to cover the costs of on-chain operations. Long Vuong, CEO and founder of TomoChain states, “Ease of use is one of the obstacles that is holding blockchain technology back from mass adoption. TomoChain’s recently launched TomoZ protocol is an attempt to solve that problem, by creating a frictionless experience for average users.” The post TomoZ goes live: a frictionless protocol for paying transaction fees in any token issued over TomoChain appeared first on CryptoSlate.

Apple Is to Unveil Apple TV+ in November with $9.99 Fee after Free Trial

Coinspeaker Apple Is to Unveil Apple TV+ in November with $9.99 Fee after Free TrialIn March 2019, Apple said that it plans to introduce a streaming service dubbed Apple TV+. However, no details were revealed in that announcement. Now, the latest report by Bloomberg suggests that Apple wants to roll out the Apple TV+ movie and TV subscription service by November. In that context, the company has committed over $6bn for original shows and movies in streaming wars ahead of that launch.The ballooning budget strives to catch up with the leaders in this space including Netflix, Disney, and AT&T-owned HBO. For many years, the iPhone maker has been preparing to dive into the media industry. It even hired two renowned executives from Sony Pictures Television, Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, to lead the charge in 2017.Initially, the two employees were given $1 billion to commission original content in the first year. However, the budget has now grown to surpass $6 billion. For instance, the company has spent hundreds of millions on “The Morning Show” that features Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell. It is believed that the amounts per episode are higher than those of “Game of Thrones”.  And “Game of Thrones” reportedly cost $15 million on average per episode of the final season.The company plans to introduce several shows and then expand its catalog more often in the coming months. Unconfirmed reports suggest that a free trial is likely while Apple expands its library. Once it establishes itself in the market, the company may charge monthly subscription fees of $9.99. That figure comes to mind as it aims to reach $50 billion in service sales by 2020.The StrategyWith its entry into video subscriptions, Apple is considering different release strategies for shows. It thinks of offering the first three episodes of some programs and then follow it up with weekly installments. Netflix releases whole seasons at once, while AT&T’s HBO and Disney’s Hulu often release episodes weekly. The new TV service is scheduled to launch worldwide in more than 150 countries.Apple TV+ will join Apple News+, Apple Music, the upcoming Apple Arcade gaming service, and iCloud storage subscriptions services existing in Apple’s portfolio. The company also gets recurring revenue from products like its bank-operated iPhone upgrade program and AppleCare extended customer service. Revenue may also start coming from the Apple Card that is to become a new word in the sphere of internet banking.If Apple sets the pricing for Apple TV+ at $9.99 a month, it will match the price set for Apple News+ and Apple Music. Amazon Prime and Netflix charge just $8.99 while Disney+ aims at $6.00 when its service debuts in November. Analysts believe that Apple TV+ may top 100 million subscribers in the next 5 years. That, in turn, will pose a major challenge to Amazon and Netflix.Apple Is to Unveil Apple TV+ in November with $9.99 Fee after Free Trial
