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
  • Airdrop Supply: 900 million
  • 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.

Horus Pay

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

Investors Reward Nexo for Adding XRP-Backed Loans

Published

on

Crypto-backed lending startup Nexo is being rewarded by investors for adding loans collateralized by the third biggest cryptocurrency XRP. The company made the announcement in a blog post, saying support for XRP was in response to demand stemming from the blockchain community.

NEXO advanced by double-digits in today’s mixed crypto market before trimming those gains somewhat. Investors may have sensed an announcement was on the horizon, as Nexo, which boasts a market cap of $76.5 million, has been on a tear in October and has seen its value increase by more than one-third for the week and 160% over the last 30 days. Most of today’s trading is unfolding on Hotbit in the ETH and BTC markets. Despite the recent gains, the NEXO price, which is currently hovering at $0.13, has not gone unscathed in this year’s market downturn and traded as high as $0.40 in May 2018.

Competitive Landscape

According to Nexo in the blog post –

“Nexo continues to push the boundaries within the crypto-lending space by becoming the first lender ever to start accepting XRP as collateral for crypto loans.”

XRP, which is majority- owned by Ripple, is a popular choice and it joins a list of nearly two-dozen cryptocurrencies supported by Nexo including bitcoin, Ethereum, Zcash and many more. The XRP price, meanwhile, is currently down 2% to $0.45 with a market cap of $18 billion, more than $2 billion below No. 2 cryptocurrency Ethereum. Last month, the XRP price added 70% to its value, but October hasn’t been as kind.

In addition to XRP, Nexo also revealed a partnership with Goldman Sachs-backed Circle’s new platform CENTRE, announcing plans to offer loans backed by the new USD-backed cryptocurrency USD//Coin (USDC). Earlier this month, when Tether fell out of favor with investors, Nexo said it was exploring the addition of more stablecoins, adding that it has “never held significant amounts of Tether (USDT) on its balance sheet.”

Investors have proven to reward lenders for the expansion of the platform into new coins. Last week, rival crypto-backed lender SALT Lending (SALT) announced its support for loans collateralized by one of this year’s best performers, Dogecoin (DOGE). Since then, SALT coin has risen more than 30%. Crypto-backed lender BlockFi, meanwhile, issues loans backed by Gemini Trust’s recently launched stablecoin Gemini Dollar (GUSD).

Blockchain startups aren’t afraid to tease upcoming announcements, giving traders the opportunity to be in a position to potentially benefit from the news. Binance CEO CZ tweeted today on the heels of the exchange’s expansion into Uganda that he’s “got one more piece of good news coming soon,” which he pointed out generated more “likes” than the Uganda tweet.

As year-end approaches, the total value of the cryptocurrency market is currently below $210 billion.

Monero Price Stabilizes as Transaction Fees Plummet

Published

on

Monero’s XMR currency has flat-lined over the past week, ebbing in the direction of the general market following the successful implementation of Bulletproofs. The upgrade, which was initiated four days ago, has given XMR a unique advantage in terms of transaction costs.

XMR/USD Update

From a price perspective, XMR has exhibited very little fluctuation over the past 24 hours. The digital currency is currently trading hands at $105.48, were it was down only slightly compared with the previous session. Likewise, the XMR price is little changed over the past seven days. Over that period, XMR’s peak-to-trough was $108.33-$102.22, according to CoinMarketCap.

At present values, Monero has a total value of $1.7 billion, placing it in the no. 10 spot on the active market-cap rankings. Its market value is three times higher than Zcash, another leading privacy coin.

XMR trade volumes averaged a little more than $14 million on Monday, with won-denominated transactions on Bithumb accounting for the vast majority of the daily turnover. The South Korean exchange processed nearly 92% of XMR’s exchange-traded volume, according to CoinMarketCap.

Monero Transaction Costs Plummet

Monero’s latest hard fork on Oct. 18 has given the blockchain a significant advantage from the perspective of cost, according to CoinMetrics, which recently commented on the massive drop in XMR transaction fees. Users of the privacy coin are now paying just 2 cents per transaction, a decline of 97% since the implementation of Bulletproofs. The sharp drop in transaction fees is accomplished by shrinking the overall size of cryptographic proofs and the amount of disk storage space required to execute a transaction.

The hard fork, officially known as Monero 0.13 Beryllium Bullet, adds a new layer of protection for XMR transactions. This includes trustless, non-interactive, zero-knowledge specifications that will completely mask transactions from the public blockchain. The hard fork was implemented on block 1685555, with the new Bulletproofs software executed on block 1686275.

The new specifications not only boost Monero’s credibility as the premiere privacy coin on the market, they work against the growing risk of network centralization. That’s because the new protocol offers greater resistance to corporate ASIC miners, which the community views as a major obstacle to decentralization. Miners have already reported a sharp drop in mining difficulty as a result of the fork, ensuring smaller players have the opportunity to contribute to the network.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis: BCH/USD Bulls Have the Potential to Capitalize, Following a Bullish Technical Set Up

Published

on

  • BCH/USD broke out and retested a long-running descending trend line, but has failed to capitalize on this further.
  • George Hotz, also known as Geohot, says “Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin.”
  • CoinText.io expands its Bitcoin Cash payment SMS service to Brazil and further European countries. 

“Bitcoin Cash is the Real Bitcoin”

George Hotz, also known as Geohot, an American entrepreneur and hacker, was recently commenting on Bitcoin Cash. Following the BCH Devcon in San Francisco he attended, Geohot demonstrated how to generate a BCH private key from scratch using python coding.

During his python video, George spoke highly of Bitcoin Cash. He said, “I’m using Bitcoin Cash because it’s the real bitcoin.” His reasoning for the preference of BCH over BTC was due to it having significantly lower transaction fees. Stating, “Transaction fees are super low on bitcoin cash.”

Bitcoin Cash Being Used in Brazil with CoinText.io

SMS cryptocurrency payment service, CoinText, has launched their services in Brazil and three other European countries – Poland, Romania and Croatia. CoinText doesn’t require apps, logins or Internet, and users can send Bitcoin Cash via SMS. A new wallet is automatically created when people have received Bitcoin Cash via SMS.

Specifically commenting on the Brazilian expansion, CoinText founder and CTO said, “Brazilians have been suffering from corruption and bad monetary policy,” says CoinText founder and CTO Vin Armani. “Cryptocurrency offers a way for them to peacefully opt out of a corrupt system.”

A move in which is further helping the adoption of Bitcoin Cash, via the CoinText service, he further noted, “Adding Poland, Croatia and Romania brings us closer to connecting the entire continent of Europe,” Armani added. “CoinText’s end-of-year goal is to enable all 740 million European residents to text money to each other’s phones for pennies.”

Technical Review – Daily Chart

BCH/USD daily chart

BCH/USD price action of late has been very much mundane following a promising breakout from a long-running descending trend line. It had been contained below and rejected on several occasions, from the back end of July. Bulls managed to pull off a decent breakout to the upside, which took place between 26-27th September.

After observing the break above, then pullback for a retest of the breached trend line, it looked very promising. This as such played out to the textbook, however bulls failed to capitalize and drive further north. Instead, the price remained within a consolidation nature, a lack of commitment in either direction. Perhaps the bulls are sitting on the launchpad, ready to send this into orbit, time will tell here.

Looking at technical areas of interest, to the upside, resistance has capped upside well into $500 territory. Tracking from $455-80, which has been evident the past few sessions. A firm push higher, will allow $550 region to come back into play. In terms of buyers, they can be found from the current price, all the way down to $400 the round figure.
