A Tale of Two Pumps: PIVX and INS Ecosystem in Coordinated 25% Spikes on Bithumb Listing

Published

on

PIVX (PIVX) was added to Korean cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb on Thursday afternoon and immediately felt a 28% boost to its market value. The pump appears to have been a coordinated effort, with $1 million worth of trades entering the PIVX market in ten minutes on the Upbit exchange.

The other coin added to Bithumb on the same day – INS Ecosystem (INS) – also experienced a similar pump at the exact same time, but on Binance’s INS/BTC market.

Upbit PIVX Pump

At 01:00 UTC on Thursday morning, PIVX/KRW suddenly soared on Upbit, with $1 million entering the exchange in a matter of minutes.

Buy orders then picked up in the Binance PIVX/BTC market soon afterwards, and by ninety minutes later PIVX had climbed 28% in value – from a coin price of $1.26 to $1.62.

The peak didn’t last long, and by Thursday night PIVX can be found back down at the $1.34 mark. Essentially the 28% growth was followed by a 17% loss. Or to put it another way, 75% of the morning’s spike was gone less than twelve hours later.

Daily volumes for PIVX climbed from $1.4 million to $16 million over the course of the day. The Bithumb trades had already started to roll in by Thursday evening, with $1.2 million coming from the exchange’s newly formed PIVX/KRW pair. Upbit continued to be a source of PIVX buys long after the initial pump, hosting 60% of the coin’s total trades.

INS Pump on Binance

Meanwhile, at the exact same time over on Binance, INS Ecosystem (INS) found itself being bought up in huge numbers by one or more BTC holders.

Within ten minutes INS was pumped to the tune of 26%, as $600,000 was added to the coin’s initial $900,000 trade volume. Over the rest of the day, volumes rose over 500%, peaking at over $6 million at time of writing.

INS Ecosystem was mentioned alongside PIVX in the recent Bithum announcement, and already boasts listings on Binance, Kucoin and OKEx. Over 66% of trades came from Binance on Thursday, while the new INS/KRW pair on Bithumb immediately made itself felt, hosting $2.5 million worth of trades.

After suddenly spiking from a coin price of $0.469610 up to $0.592142, INS immediately trailed off, and found itself back down at the $0.50 range by Thursday night.

Who, What, Why?

Both coins were pumped seemingly just moments before this announcement by Bithumb was posted. The Korean publication time for the article equates to 01:00 UTC exactly, while both of these coins were pumped at exactly 00:59 UTC.

One could only speculate on the source of the pumps, but ultimately, two coins have been thrown around like rag dolls today, and it’s anyone’s guess how long the selloff will continue.

Gemini Dollar Approaches Parity with USD After Rocketing Higher Earlier in Week

Published

on

The newly launched Gemini Dollar (GUSD) has come back down to earth after its premium over the greenback approached 20% earlier in the week, offering yet another sign that stablecoins are anything but.

GUSD Update

After reaching a high of $1.19 on Tuesday, Gemini’s GUSD token has consolidated at $1.01, according to CoinMarketCap. At current levels, GUSD more or less serves its function as a dollar-pegged stablecoin.

GUSD has a total supply of 1.22 million units but the amount in circulation is unknown. Daily trade volumes amounted to $7 million on Thursday, according to the latest available data.

The sudden upsurge in GUSD followed a large-scale selloff of USDT, another dollar-backed stablecoin. USDT not only lost its peg to the dollar on Monday, it crashed to a low of around $0.89. That was the lowest in 18 months.

Gemini Dollar Overview

As the name implies, GUSD is the native stablecoin of Gemini, a regulated cryptocurrency exchange founded by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. The coin was launched in September after the brothers obtained regulatory approval from the New York Department of Financial Services to issue a dollar-pegged cryptocurrency.

As a stablecoin, GUSD is supposed to be pegged to the U.S. dollar on a one-for-one basis, giving traders access to instant liquidity on the Gemini platform without funding delays. This means every unit of GUSD issued must have a commensurate supply of fiat dollars in a Gemini bank account. This gives Gemini the discretion to release more GUSD tokens as its fiat-currency reserve grows.

Gemini claims to offer the world’s first regulated stablecoin backed by proven reserves at State Street Bank and Trust Company. The company’s focus on regulatory transparency contrasts markedly with other stablecoin projects, which have come under fire for their failure to produce a verifiable audit of their accounts.

Tether’s USDT is the most popular stablecoin in circulation, accounting for more than a fifth of all trade volumes of virtual currency exchanges, according to CoinMarketCap. Tether has been subpoenaed by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) amid allegations it was pumping bitcoin’s price by issuing more tokens than it has in reserves. The company also shares key executives with Bitfinex, the primary exchange accused of facilitating the pump.

Although Tether has avoided legal troubles, it has faced growing suspicion from market players. This came to a head on Monday after USDT lost its peg to the dollar.

It remains to be seen whether GUSD will become a viable alternative to USDT. Its regulatory backing paints a positive picture for the future of stablecoins, but its direct ties to Gemini could limit adoption given the exchange’s relatively small scale. As of Thursday, Gemini was the 43rd largest exchange based on adjusted trade volume.

Monero Price Analysis: XMR/USD is Stable and Gunning for Potential Gains on “Bulletproofs” Technology Update Day

Published

on

  • Monero developers have released an updated version to their protocol, implementing “Bulletproofs”.
  • XRM/USD is within a range block, with price behavior suggesting of a potential imminent breakout higher.

Monero Becoming First Crypto Over Billion-Dollar Market Cap Implementing “Bulletproofs”

Developers at the Monero foundation, have released an updated version to the protocol. This will be live from 18th and 19th October. They are becoming the first network to try out “bulletproofs”. The goal of this technology is to significantly decrease the weight of confidential transactions. From today, 18th October, the privacy-focused cryptocurrency will be testing this.

The move from Monero will make them the first crypto with over a billion-dollar market cap, to try out the “bulletproofs” technology. Over the past year, the foundation has been working on cutting the size of its confidential transactions, by at least 80 percent.  A full overview of the upgrade was posted in a blog post by Monero.

The purpose of bulletproofs are to facilitate confidential transactions. Senders and recipients addresses will remain visible, but the amounts being sent is concealed. The technology also aims to reduce transaction times and fees.

Sarang Noether, a spokesperson for Monero and a key part of the bulletproof integration, was recently speaking on the upgrade. He noted that “Bulletproofs will be replacing the “zero-knowledge range proofs”, of which their confidential transactions are reliant on. The cryptocurrency will activate the technology during its next system-wide upgrade, or hard fork. An upgrade that will require nodes to adopt a new software. Furthermore, Sarang added, “hard forks are sometimes colored as a risky process. However, this upgrade is part of Monero’s bi-annual cycle to introduce new features.”

Technical Review – 4-hour Chart

XMR/USD 4-hour chart

XRM/USD for the past going on three sessions now has been trading within a tight range-block. This trading behavior coming after the aggressive movements seen just some days before. On 11th October the price had spiked over 10% lower. To then enter a tight range, which saw a huge breakout, jumping around 20% high. Over half of this spike to the upside was reversed, moving into the three-session range as mentioned above.

Looking to the upside, eyes will be on another range-breakout. Bulls will be wanting to retest the breached supporting trend line. An attempt was made during the rally seen on 15th October, however strong resistance was observed. In terms of support, this can be eyed at the lower part of the current range, around $107.50. If the bears pile enough pressure, it vcould see a fast move back to $100, then further south below demand area from $86-76.
