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

A global payroll portal that allows companies to exchange private encrypted secured data with international payroll vendors using the blockchain.

  • Snapshot: June 2 Main net Genesis snapshot.
  • Airdrop: June 30 1:1 Ratio
  • Total Supply: 1.2 billion
  • Airdrop Supply: 900 million
  • Hacked Analysis: Although they only have one month before the airdrop, they still haven’t made a whitepaper, or supplied much info at all.

Everipedia

Wikipedia on truth-telling steroids, everyone that contributes in different ways to the platform gets rewarded in IQ tokens.

  • Website: https://everipedia.org/
  • Snapshot: Genesis (June 2)
  • Airdrop: June 15, 900 m to EOS holders at a 1:1 ratio
  • Total Supply: 1.2 billion

HireVibes

A DAC dApp empowering job seekers and businesses to get hired, get paid, earn more and give back. Hirevibes takes a 2.5% fee for all facilitated hires. They will take 50% of this income and give it straight to HVT token holders daily.

  • Website: https://hirevibes.io/
  • Snapshot: Unsure
  • Airdrop: 250 million HVT (75%) to be received within 90 days of EOS launch
  • Total Supply: 350 million
  • Action Required. none that we see
  • Hacked Analysis: This looks like it has potential but it’s very young. You can find plenty more info on the token dynamics right here.

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
  • Total Supply: TBA
  • Airdrop : TBA
  • Hacked Analysis: Parachute will be ra=un by Block Producer candidate EOSDublin. If this happens, the token will be one to hold on to.

  • Total Supply: 1.2 billion
  • Airdropped Supply- 1 billion
  • Action Required: None, just make sure your EOS tokens are in a wallet where you control the keys.
  • Hacked Analysis: It’s hard to put a judgment on this so early. The only team members given are the founders, and there is barely any info on them.

KEOS

Keos is a DAC BP candidate based in Korea. They are developing multiple open-source projects and decentralizing the blockchain ecosystem using EOS technology.

  • Website: https://www.keos.kr/token
  • Snapshot: May 31

  • Total Supply: 1.5 billion
  • Airdrop Supply: 900 million
  • Hacked Analysis: This is similar to an earlier EOS airdrop called eosDAC. If KEOS gets voted in as block producer this will be big.

  • Total Supply: 500 million
  • Airdrop Supply: 100 million
  • Action Required: Most register with the website.
  • Hacked Analysis: This looks thrown together, possibly not even a real attempt at a business. Only info found is this sad Twitter page:

EOS Cannon + Bihu.com

BP candidate from China. EOS Cannon together with social media Bihu.com will airdrop 50,000 EOS ERC20 (not candy) to its community supporters before Dawn 3.0 main net launch.

  • Website: https://eoscannon.io/
  • Snapshot: N/A (must register through their site)
  • Total Airdropped Supply: 50,000 EOS
  • Action Required: register at https://bihu.com/  and subscribe to “EOS” discussion board, then subscribe your EOSCannon official account on bihu.com
  • Hacked Analysis: Not sure what to make of this; it could be a hoax. When I clicked on the site, my computer warned me that it is unsafe to visit.

EOS BET 

A completely fair casino based on EOS that will start off offering dice and slots

  • https://www.eosbet.io/
  • Snapshot: June 2
  • Total Supply: 1 billion
  • Airdrop Supply: 100 million (2.5% given to EOS holders)

    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.

Crypto Markets: Bloodied But Not Broken

Published

on

As legend has it, prize fighter Jake Lamotta returns to his corner at the end of round four of one of his early boxing matches with blood all over and his face was a mess.  Trying his best, his trainer tells Jake, you’re doing great kid, they haven’t laid a glove on you. To which Lamotta replies, well you better keep an eye on the referee because somebody is beating the crap out of me.

Lately, those of us who have a passion for the world of cryptocurrencies are feeling that somebody is beating the crap out of us. Trouble is, it is hard to figure out why.  Just as we are about to land a punch with the SEC declaring that bitcoin and Ethereum are not securities, ditto that for ICOs that do not convey an equity interest in the issuer, whamo prices drop to 2018 lows.  

The Other Side Of The Coin

We read of the recent hack of a tiny South Korean crypto exchange and pundits blame this for helping to push prices lower.  However, the market seemed to completely ignore this week’s progress in the Mt. Gox litigation. There is actually a decent prospect that investors that held $450 million in bitcoin at 2014 prices will be compensated in nitcoin.  If my arithmetic is working right, this is good news considering the 2014 Blbitcoin price was less than $2.00.

Institutionalizing Crypto

While most eyes last week were fixated on falling prices, exchange giant Coinbase let it be known that it was preparing a crypto custody service.  This may appear as a boring administrative step but that is hardly the case. This move is being heralded as the final step in opening crypto to institutional buyers.

Before Coinbase’s solution the problem has been that, despite the highly secure nature of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, the wallets where they are stored are a regular target for hackers.

For investors, making cryptos more accessible to institutional investors is every bit as important as adding retail merchants that accept crypto for goods and services.  

Finding Crypto Support From Unexpected Places

Last Friday various media outlets point out how The U.S. Supreme Court mentioned bitcoin and cryptocurrency while issuing a ruling on a seemingly unrelated case. Here is what the U.S. Supreme Court had to say on June 21st in the case of Wisconsin Central LTD v. United States:

“What we view as money has changed over time. Cowrie shells once were such a medium but no longer are, our currency originally included gold coins and bullion, but, after 1934, gold could not be used as a medium of exchange, perhaps one day employees will be paid in Bitcoin or some other type of cryptocurrency.”

In spite of the current oversupply of naysayers, the legacy of crypto is increasing daily. Now even the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis is collecting and publishing prices of bitcoin, bitcoin cash, Ethereum and Litecoin. A year ago at this time, such a notion would have been absurd.    

Suspension Of Efficient Market Thinking

For those who have been kind to follow these ramblings know that I am a big believer in the theory of efficient markets.  The key to this theory is that people have all the available information about a particular investment asset and act upon is rationally.  Of course, this is not to say that everybody reads the information in the same way. That is what makes for buyers and sellers.

Lately, there has been a complete suspension of an efficient market for crypto. All coins and tokens have been dumped without regard for fundamentally positive events, some of which we mentioned above.  Since the vast majority of crypto is owned by individuals, the wisdom of the crowd (or in this case mob) psychology prevails. The last time this was the case it was bitcoin alone that lost some 80% of it’s value starting late in 2013.  But that took more than a year to play out. Since the infamous $19,000+ peak, bitcoin has lost 68% so history is getting close to repeating itself.

It may also be a sign that a bottom in prices may be getting closer. The values are clearly there to be had. Now if only those of us who have a longer term view can find other who share a similar view.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: Correction Deepens as Coin Values Approach 2018 Lows

Published

on

The cryptocurrency market approached its lowest level of the year Saturday in a continuation of yesterday’s flash crash that wiped more than $30 billion off coin values.

Market Update

Cryptocurrencies saw their combined market capitalization plunge to a low of $250.6 billion late Friday, according to CoinMarketCap. With the decline, coin values came within $2 billion of their bear-market low for the year.

At the time of writing, the total market cap was $255.9 billion on trade volumes of nearly $14 billion.

It became apparent early Saturday that bitcoin and Ethereum had found support near their Friday swing lows. Both coins are down less than 1% compared to 24 hours earlier.

Bitcoin touched a new yearly low of $5,938 on Saturday but has since consolidated above $6,100 on major exchanges. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap suffered a major reversal on Friday after failing to breach the all-important $6,800 threshold. The coin quickly broke down below $6,500 and has since tested multiple new lows. In terms of immediate support, BTC/USD is now eyeing $5,850.

Ethereum prices bottomed at $450.34 on Saturday, their lowest since mid-April. Ether values were last seen hovering around $470.

Elsewhere in the top-ten, EOS was down another 5% compared to yesterday and was last seen trading at $8.33. The EOS network is battling through a PR nightmare amid multiple delays and controversies.

Bottoming Process Continues

There doesn’t appear to be an immediate catalyst for the latest selloff. As Hacked reported earlier, attributing the declines to the Bithumb hack is misguided given that the market quickly recovered from the negative headlines. (The initial decline was also limited.) Bithumb has already announced plans to compensate users affected by the $30 million heist. The exchange also disclosed that the theft accounted for no more than 6% of its proven reserves.

Cryptocurrencies remain trapped in a long-term bearish cycle that emerged early this year after markets reached their highest level on record. According to Bill Baruch, President of Blue Line Futures, the six-month correction represents a bottoming process that has yet to conclude.

In a recent interview with CNBC, Baruch said that repeated selloffs over the past four months have “wiped out most, if not all, of the over-enthusiasm” and FOMO speculators from the market. While initially bad from the perspective of prices, this means speculative positions are declining. Hacked first noted the decline in speculative positions more than three months ago following the April Fool’s Day selloff.

Analysts have noted that the recent six-month correction mirrors bitcoin’s 2014 retreat, which highlights the boom-and-bust nature of the digital asset class. Against this backdrop, bitcoin and its altcoin counterparts likely need to demonstrate several months of consolidation and stability before the bull market re-emerges.

Game (GTC) Gains 60% Yesterday and Loses It All Today

Published

on

This time yesterday the crypto market was nosediving, and as has become standard practice in such times, links to suicide prevention hotlines were posted on popular crypto forums.

But amid the flurry of red candles stood one proud green column; and a token which showed 60% gains while everything else sank.

GTC tokens started yesterday at a price of $0.125, and by the end of the day its value had surged to $0.20.

However, in the last 24 hours all of those gains have been wiped off the table, and Game.com has even been forced to pay interest on those gains as the token price has since sunk to $0.114 – a price even lower than it started at before the spike.

GTC had spent most of the month within the $0.09 – $0.13 range,

What the crypto market giveth, the crypto market taketh away – or at least that’s how it often seems to play out. The Game.com team may have been slightly too optimistic at this time yesterday, when they tweeted out the celebratory exclamation:

“GTC TO THE MOON CONFIRMED!!!”

Pump and Dump?

Looking at the shape of the GTC’s weekly graph, the natural assumption would be that it has been the victim of a pump and dump.

Game.com’s 24 hour trading volume increased by an astronomical 3500% – starting yesterday with a daily volume of around $2 million, before jumping to $72 million just a few hours ago. That volume has dropped back down to the $40 million range in the last four hours, and continues to fall.

Such movements are not uncommon among tokens lower down on the market cap Top-100. Indeed, Game.com finds itself positioned in 96th spot, with a valuation of $87 million, among other coins which have experienced unnatural market movements in recent weeks, such as Enigma, Funfair and Decentraland.

This time yesterday GTC had broken into the Top-70’s, but now faces the proposition of dropping out of the Top-100 entirely.

All Roads Lead to Tether

Nearly 60% of GTC’s total trades in the last day have come from Gate.io, where $30 million worth of trades were made against USDT. The second highest volume of trades also came against USDT on the OKEx exchange.

Only 14% of the total trades have come against BTC, while ETH trades only account for around 10% of the day’s volume.

Yesterday’s spike marks the highest market valuation reached by GTC since April 22nd, when the value of one token surged to a price of $0.45, which was even higher than the $0.35 valuation achieved during the spike of January.

Game.com aims to become a media hub for the gaming industry. The team’s annoucement states:

“Through the creation and integration of game content, we provide ready-to-go entertainment services and application environment to facilitate the rapid expansion and development of blockchain technology.”
