Everything You Need to Know About the First Wave of EOS Airdrops

Published

on

EOS has become a powerhouse in the crypto space. One of the most promising things about it is the airdrops. Unlike Ethereum, many EOS projects are choosing to collect zero funds up front. Instead, they simply drop their token to the EOS community, while dropping themselves tokens to fund their project. The EOS markets then decide the value of the token based on demand, The team then sells some of its tokens to raise money. Since it’s easy and practically free to start a project on EOS, new players are popping up every day.

We looked into each new airdrop and compiled some cliffs and instructions on how to claim them. This list was made with the most promising projects on top, weaker ones on the bottom.

Without further adieu, here are 13 of the first airdrops to arrive in EOS holders wallets once the EOS main net goes live next week.

Chaince

A blockchain asset trading platform focusing on EOS projects.

  • Website: https://chaince.com/
  • Snapshot Date: June 2nd (EOS main net launch)
  • Airdrop Date: June 15 (1:1 ratio, CET to EOS)
  • Total Supply: 2 billion
  • Additional Info: Distribution: 900 million for airdrop, 500 million for the Chaince Foundation, 200 million for the Chaince Club, and 400 million for marketing.
  • Action Required: No additional action required.
  • Hacked Analysis: One of the most mature projects to be airdropped. The exchange is pretty much up and running already. The team looks pretty good, the whitepaper is well done. They are currently allowing everyone to register and sign up for their promotional program that rewards tokens to community participants.

Etheos

A blockchain application ecosystem and incubator for EOS.

  • Website: https://etheos.io/
  • Snapshot: TBA
  • Total Supply: TBA
  • Airdrop details: TBA
  • Hacked Analysis: No Telegram, which is weird. They also haven’t updated their EOS countdown clock for a couple months. Team looks good. They have a few strong partnerships. The founders of Etheos also founded Bitgate, a new payment gateway app with the following partnerships.

EOX

EOX is a decentralized e-commerce platform that allows all EOS based tokens to be spent. EOX’s goal is to facilitate a global commerce system that allows all goods and services to be transacted in cryptocurrency without relying on fiat money. On EOX, social media influencers on all the major sites can create their own e-commerce page filled with their custom products. When they make a sale they can program the smart contract to automatically pay-out to whoever. You can also protect your data while on the platform, only releasing it to businesses/advertisers who pay you in EOX.

  • Website: https://www.eoxlab.io/
  • Snapshot: Unsure
  • Airdrop: 1:1 Ratio (1 EOX per 1 EOS)
  • Total Supply: 10 billion

  • Hacked Analysis: Though the 10 b illiontotal supply is a lot, this looks like one of the stronger projects in the bunch. There is a major need for a crypto that enables fee-less micro-transactions. The team looks really solid. Experience at JP Morgan, Qualcomm and Swift. Most of the team worked previously at Ruby on Rails, an open sourced web-application framework that includes everything needed to create database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern.

Parachute

Parachute is a platform where an EOS token holder can receive their airdrop tokens. The user is able to view the app airdropping the token and decide whether to claim the tokens. Users will then share their details with the app company, or refuse them and claim the corresponding value in Parachute tokens for future purchases. Users can promote their app and distribute tokens to investors who have opted to support their project.

  • Website: https://www.parachute.zone/
  • Snapshot: TBA

  • Snapshot: June 2
  • Total Supply: 1 billion

    Do you know if it’s going to be like EOS Dac and you need to hold 100 EOS in order to receive the automatic airdrops? In the case of EOSDac there was a fairly straightforward registration link to receive the airdrop, but anyone with 100 received it automatically. Also, any idea if Binance will honour these airdrops?

    I think the only one that requires you to hold at least 100 EOS is KEOS.

Ethereum Price Rebounds from 14-Month Low; Long-Term Growth Still Intact, Says Co-Founder 

Published

on

Ethereum staged a large relief rally on Wednesday, as bargain hunters swept in to capitalize on extreme oversold conditions following a 35% weekly rout for the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency.

ETH/USD Update

The ether price surged 13.6% to $294, clawing back more than half the losses it incurred since Monday. Total trade volumes were $1.9 billion, according to CoinMarketCap.

At current values, Ethereum has a total capitalization of $29.8 billion.

Momentum has returned to the ether trade, with the monthly relative strength index (RSI) improving to 67. Ethereum’s RSI plunged to single digits twice over the past eight days.

The broader cryptocurrency market improved to $208.4 billion on Wednesday, which is a reversal of nearly $20 billion from the recent swing low.

Long-Term Growth Trajectory Still Intact: Lubin

Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin isn’t concerned about the latest downtrend in cryptocurrency prices. In fact, he believes the market is in better health today now that speculative investments have died off and bubble conditions have eroded.

“We’ve seen six big bubbles, each more epic than the previous one, and each bubble is astonishing when they’re happening but when you look back they look like pimples on a chart,” Lubin, who currently serves as CEO of ConsenSys Inc., said during an interview with Bloomberg. “With each of these bubbles we have a tremendous surge of activity and that’s what we’re seeing right now.”

Lubin believes Ethereum will play a pivotal role in the future alongside hundreds of other blockchain networks. This view is shared by other industry leaders, such as Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and Ted Rogers of Xapo, who believe the vast majority of tokens will go to zero.

Arthur Hayes Rips Ethereum

BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes launched a scathing criticism of Ethereum in a recent post on Crypto Trader Digest, where he attributed the cryptocurrency’s growth to the highly speculative ICO boom.

In Hayes’ view, Ethereum will soon go “from a 3-digit to a 2-digit shitcoin.”

In the crypto community, a ‘shitcoin’ is a pejorative term that describes an altcoin that has become worthless.

As Hacked reported on Tuesday, a large-scale cash-out of ICOs appears to have sparked the recent leg of the crypto market downturn. At its lowest point on Tuesday, the cryptocurrency market cap was valued around $189 billion. That’s a $220 billion reversal from three months ago.

Why Investors Should Pay Attention to OmiseGO

Published

on

Decentralization is a word that receives a ton of lip service in the blockchain community, but some companies are actually doing an amazing job getting their actions to back their words. OmiseGO is one such company.

Omise was founded in 2013 as a payment services company, and OmiseGO is an extension platform that operates separately. It is important you not confuse the two.

As an ERC-20 token that operates a smart contract platform, OMG is a high-performing proof-of-stake protocol with a massive mission to bring decentralization to trading.

What Need is OmiseGO Fulfilling

Ripple was originally seen to be the top solution in the payment providers sector, but its lack of decentralization has shown that there are significant downsides to their operating model. OmiseGO aims to become a decentralized Ripple, but operating a high-powered decentralized exchange (DEX), and has already become the top name in on-chain and cross-chain transactions.

With decentralization and the ability to connect fragmented payment processors, OmiseGO would also be able to help the unbanked gain access to the banking system.

There is currently a massive gap in the legacy financial network, since payment networks (such as SWIFT) have unilateral control over the flow of financial services on their network. Paypal and Venmo have proven to have similar centralization risks, even if they bring some competition to the table.

Not only would OmiseGO decentralize payment processing and create a DEX, but they have released a software development kit (SDK) to enable the creation of new applications and wallets on their system.

Meet the OmiseGO Team

OmiseGO is run by a well-reputed team (headed by Jun Hasegawa) who in the past have been referred to as “Fintech Rockstars” by Forbes. Their advisory board is packed with big names like Vitalin Buterin, Gavin Wood, and Joseph Poon, to name a few.

By contributing $100,000 to the Ethereum foundations DEVGRANTS program, they have indicated a strong commitment to the future of Ethereum and their investment within the community.

Every token needs to have its utility, and OMG is paid to holders in exchange for validating transactions. These holders have the right to confirm blocks, and effectively work as income producing assets in the course of the operation of the network.

The incentives here lie in the value of the network. The more transactions that need to be validated, the more token holders will need to confirm transactions, and therefore the more money is likely to be distributed to OMG holders in exchange for their confirmations.

OmiseGO’s Recent Performance

OmiseGO is now trading at around $3.30 USD, which is down an incredible amount from its high above $24 USD in January. This has been typical of many assets in the industry, but could be a sign that OMG is oversold.

There has also been a lot of news about OMG recently. In July a partnership with Status was announced that would result with the integration of the services of the two companies. Status is an open source dapp (decentralized app) for phones and browsers, and was one of the first clients to be developed on the Ethereum blockchain. Their core project is to link mobile chat and social media by using Ethereum tokenization.

With the goal of ultimate decentralization, OmiseGO has its work cut out for it. Although founded in 2013, they are still in the early stages of their expansions. More good news came in early June, when OMG was listed on Unocoin, one of the top asian exchanges located in India.

OmiseGO’s dream of connecting all the disparate financial systems and rails gives it the potential to become the DEX of the future. The question is whether they can displace the already dominant Ripple by going in a different strategic direction and sticking to their core tenets of decentralization and trustless networks.

Bitcoin Price Defends $6,000 as Crypto Market Cap Returns Above $200 Billion

Published

on

Bitcoin rebounded sharply on Wednesday after a bear market breakdown dragged prices to within $100 of yearly lows. Although the technical indicators have improved, significant downside risks remain.

BTC/USD Update

Bitcoin’s price was up 4.6% on Bitfinex to trade at $6,483. The leading digital currency reached a session high of $6,483, having recovered more than 8% from Monday’s swing low. Bitcoin’s 24-hour trade volumes averaged $4.6 billion on Wednesday.

The $6,000 price point has emerged as an important support level for bitcoin. As Hacked previously reported, this level is not only psychologically significant, it represents more or less the break-even rate for miners.

The monthly technical chart shows improving conditions in the bitcoin price, though this should be taken with a grain of salt given the market’s extreme moves as of late.

At current levels, bitcoin has a total market capitalization of $109.8 billion, which represents 53.6% of the total cryptocurrency market.

Altcoins and tokens collectively rose by $8 billion on Wednesday to reach a total value of $94.4 billion, according to CoinMarketCap. The value of all digital assets was $204.6 billion.

The Market’s Next Move

Although predicting bitcoin’s next move is notoriously difficult, a successful defense of the $6,000 floor is an important step in facilitating the next rally. That the yearly low ($5,755) wasn’t breached during the latest downtrend suggests the bulls may be running out of steam.

That said, bitcoin’s dominance rate reveals structural weakness in the cryptocurrency market, not to mention damaged investor psychology. As Hacked reported Tuesday, cash-out from the ICO boom appears to be largely responsible for the latest reversal, a sign that investors were losing confidence in riskier assets. This is further corroborated by Ethereum’s dramatic selloff over the past seven days. The so-called developer’s cryptocurrency has been responsible for three-quarters of initial coin offerings.

According to BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes, investors shouldn’t expect a large price recovery at this stage given the general lack of momentum, volume and stability in the market. Trading volumes – a key proxy for demand in the cryptocurrency market – averaged $13.4 billion on Wednesday, based on latest available data.
