In the race for perfection, distributed ledger projects are always innovating, sinking funds into research and development in a bid to strike a perfect balance between decentralization, security and scalability in the so called blockchain trilemma. While most prefer the more proven and battle tested “blockchains”, other projects are settling for blockless technologies for good reasons.

Of the many is IOTA and now, Fantom. Both utilize the Direct Acyclic Graph (DAG) meaning the network is inherently scalable with fast throughput and implementation is cheaper for the end user despite the network utilizing a proof-of-work consensus algorithm that is known to be energy inefficient, susceptible to clogging and not scalable.

Fantom is therefore a high performance, DAG based project incorporating smart contracts with a high throughput exceeding 300k TPS. For this capability, it is nicknamed as the “Korean EOS”. Creators say they plan to disrupt the existing financial and supply chain networks  simply because their platform allow participants to make near instantaneous payments all this in a scalable, low cost and efficient manner.

Unlike most DAG based products that promise heaven but end up disappointing their fan base, Fantom actually did their leg work, building a Fantom Virtual Machine on their Opera platform from where developers can build and run dApps because of the network’s smart contract capability.

The Team

Seeking to work through and deliver on the network’s objectives is a dedicated, technical and experienced team. Leading the team is Dr. Ahn Byung Ik who is the Fantom Foundation CEO and doubling up as the President of The Korea Food-Tech Association. He holds a Ph.D in computer science from Yonsei University and has been awarded the President Award for his successful IT business.

Complementing Ahn is Michael Kong who is the CIO. He is a smart contract developer who has been involved in the blockchain space for several years. He previously worked as the Chief Technology Officer at Block8, a venture capital-backed Blockchain incubator where he managed all of the business’s projects. Ashton Hettiarachi is the head of innovation and has over 10 years experience in business, the financial markets, and emerging technologies. At the moment he is the CEO at Blockchain Partners Holdings— a cryptocurrency investment and research firm located in Australia.

Advising the team is Steve Belloti and Mathew Hurr who are executive advisors, Andre Cronje who had a stint at cryptobriefings as a Crypto Code Reviewer,Quan Ngoyen and Alex Kampa a specialist on blockchain architecture, consensus models and smart contracts who are Technical advisors.

Roadmap

After concluding their rather successful ICO back in Jun 2018, Fantom validated the Lachesis Protocol in June and followed that up with the launch of a Middleware Layer Public API disclosure in Q3 2018 whose test-net was in June the same year.

Their goal now is the Completion of OPERA Core Layer Development as its Functional language and Virtual machine are in beta before launching their mainnet in Q3 2019 in the “Operetta phase” and establishing the Fantom council while simultaneously expanding globally during the “Grand Opera” from Q2 2020.

Strategic  Partners

Without partners, any DLT project wouldn’t flourish and hence, fail.As a result, Fantom is aggressively searching for new partners in their bid to deliver their vision-mission statements as well as benefit investors.

As a result, Fantom has a partnership with 8Decimal Capital—a crypto venture firm that invests in projects that seek to develop blockchain infrastructure, as well as with Arrington XRP Capital, a digital asset management firm.

Another noteworthy partnership that will definitely elevate the project, lifting them to another level is their partnership with Binance chain. Announced on May 22, 2019, the aim is to create a multi asset cross chain ecosystem through interoperability in which there will be support for “a multitude of tokens including the ERC-20 standard, Fantom token standard, and the BEP-2 token standard coined on Binance Chain.” At this rate, odds are FTM could be added to the decentralized exchange boosting depth and liquidity.

Others include BiBox, DEX incorporating AI and encryption whose team has links with OkCoin and Huobi. Then there is BlackEdge Capital, Block Crafters Capital, Block Tech Capital Corporation, Block VC—whose members are from DeepMind, Google and Credit Suisse, BlockWater—a DAF, and many more including Danfoss. Fantom’s coin (FTM) is listed at ChainX and BitMax.


Tokenomics

Speed and scalability mixed with smart contract capability is what sets Fantom apart. That is where the project draws its value from and unlike others that postpone token listing due to “unfavorable” market conditions, FTM—the native token, was available for trading at the deep of last year’s crypto winter. That is why the project has an expert’s ratings of 4-stars from ICO Bench with tech leaders believing the team is very competent and would deliver assigning them a 4.9 stars.

Fantom (FTM) is a utility token based on the Ethereum platform and adhering with the ERC-20 standard. In their pre-ICO, the coin retailed at $0.03 and during the public sale, it changed hands at $0.04 between Jun 15th and 16th when the crowd funding was concluded as the project raised $39.7 million. The public funding was oversubscribed by 1 percent as the hard cap set at $39.4 was surpassed by $300k from the 40 percent of the total 3.175 billion (1.42 billion) FTM tokens set aside for investment. The platform has a 5-percent inflation rate but that will drop as more users plug in.

During the crowd funding, ETH was the only coin accepted but investors from Australia, the US, China and South Korea couldn’t participate.

30 percent of the total tokens is set aside from marketing while the team and advisors get 15 percent each. From raised funds, 30 percent will be  directed towards marketing while 20 percent will cover operations and the majority, 50 percent will cater for ecosystem development and research.

Even so, because of harsh market conditions througout Q4 2018 and early 2019, the FTM is trading at $0.0138 with average trading volumes of $2.75 million attracting a market cap of $25 million from the 1,813,658,595 FTMs currently in circulation. As a result, the ROI is 0.26X against BTC, 0.62X versus ETH and down 68 percent with the USD.

FTM/BTC Price Analysis

Benefiting from the market wide recovery, FTM is bottoming up against BTC. From the weekly chart, there is a double bar bull reversal pattern and behind the upswing are high transaction volumes hinting of participation.

Besides, pasting a simple Fibonacci retracement tool between it’s high low reveal that prices are finding support from the 78.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level. As such, it is likely that prices will edge higher in weeks ahead. However, a pull back to 150-172 satoshis is ideal. On the reverse side, any surge past 231 satoshis could fuel participation with traders aiming at 400 satoshis as prices double.

NB: This is not financial advice


Short Term Catalysts

Over and above everything, Fantom want to create a platform where there is borderless connection employing DAG technology that can be employed at scale while maintaining high reliability with data sharing. That, therefore, means application of Fantom across most verticals including in telecommunications, logistics, finance and basically in all areas where efficiency, reliability, speed, cost saving through smart contracting is required.

Furthermore,the network can satisfactorily respond to Sybil and parasite attacks and transaction flooding maintaining the integrity of the system. Because of this, Fantom has a partnership with Fusion protocol, Terra Money amongst other funds and management firms spread across the world including Arrington XRP capital. Other key partners that will contribute positively towards the growth of the project is that with Binance chain and their objective of creating a digital economy by fronting interoperability, that with the Oracle corporation of the US and Korea FoodTech Corporation whose president is the CEO of the project.

Besides this trust from firms and big corporation, the team is working on staking as the network as voting capacity thanks to the dPoS inculcation allowing participants to earn rewards for their participation. That’s on top of the Reputation model that the platform make use of drawn from the number of mainnet transactions and executed automatically through smart contracts.

Besides, the network’s mainnet will launch in the Operatta stage in Q3 and with the expectations of extra liquidity from Okex, we expect FTM related trading volumes to increase in days ahead. After all, there is this support from Kucoin and ChainX. Additionally, candlestick arrangements as aforementioned are favorable. Therefore, odds are FTM prices will inch higher in response.


Long Term Catalysts

Furthermore, apart from decreasing inflation and high level partners, we must note that the project is the first DAG based platform with smart contract capabilities. As a result, developers can launch their smart contracts in a network that is inherently scalable and secured by nodes. Besides, the team can deliver.

In 2020, once the Fantom Improvement Proposal is implemented allowing for staking, nodes—delagator and validator nodes, would earn 15 percent per FTM stake decreasing to around 11 percent in mid-2023. Compared to other PoS platforms, this is a generous reward designed to attract users would shall benefit from securing the ledger while guaranteeing that the network’s throughput remain high.

Introduction

For the uninitiated, they can be spoilt for choice. However, with the space drawing interest from government agencies and big businesses, settling for the right option can be the difference between winning, that is, meeting and even surpassing objectives, and flopping–miserably.

Of the many other there, High Performance Blockchain (HPB) is remarkably different. At core, they seek to revolutionize blockchain infrastructure. To that end, they blend hardware and software, creating an ultimate permisionless blockchain that is public, stable and scalable with a Proof of Performance as the preferred consensus algorithm. HPB combines the Blockchain Offload Engine (BOE) hardware with a tailor made software, designed purposefully to achieve their overall goal as pitched by the blockchain creators.

The BOE unit is part of the ECDSA (Ecliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm) module that verifies transaction signatures while concurrently enabling the network to process thousands of transactions per second. HPB can process at 10k TPS in China and 5K TPS at the rest of the world. The BOE is simply a chip-acceleration engine that boost the node’s hardware chipsets which in turn power the HPB ecosystem.

It is specifically because of the BOE that the blockchain works as billed, introducing high speed and above all, the main differentiator of low latency. Apart from that, HPB is satisfactorily decentralized as their nodes are distributed across the world. Combined, there is top-notch security in place as the community first of all secures the network and secondly, from other measures installed by the platform’s architects.

Furthermore, for consensus, there is voting and task delegation  meaning enterprises can not only deploy smart contracts, launch dApps but can also use the platform as the goal of HPB is to empower businesses by building a dApp ecosystem in a scalable, secure platform that is fully customizable, low maintenance and launched by an ambitious, experienced team.

Team

The High Performance Blockchain (HPB) team is drawn from individuals from all over the world. With a roadmap to meet and a cause to fulfill, Xiaoming Wang is leading a dedicated global team of developers and experienced consultants. Wang is passionate about blockchain and is one of the first pioneers in the space. He’s well known in the Chinese blockchain sphere and one of the founders of Union Pay Smart, Union Pay’s Big Data team.

Assisting Wang is Jinxin Li, who doubles up as the co-founder and the head of HPB’s Strategic Development. Li is among the first miners of Ethereum and a successful blockchain investor with stellar digital asset portfolio. Before joining HPB he was the Chief Blockchain Analyst at Guotai Junan Securities. Other co-founders include Li Xu, the CTO and Lou Shanlin, the Tech VP. Noteworthy team members from the rest of the world include Emma Zhu, the CMO, Danny Rowshandel, the Managing Director of Overseas Business Development and Julien Passagne, the Business Development Director.

Advising the team is Zongru Wan, a member of a Nobel Prize-winning team, NEO, Zhen Lei, the Jixianyuan CEO, OKCoin co-founder and Bibox Founder, Zhen Chen, the Dongfang Fuhua, Fund President and six others.

Road Map

Launched in Q1 2017, High Performance Blockchain has had tremendous success. After their one-month crowdfunding raising $2 million from a $5 million hard cap target, the team continue to develop even after last year’s crypto winter. They launched the HPB Test Net in Q4 2017, followed that up with mainnet launch in Q3 2018 and are currently building a Global HPB Ecosystem development to be concluded by end of July 2019. After that the aim is to optimize BOE hardware and software while simultaneously expanding their Baas Offering for the rest of the year.

Partners

For what the project represent and their ambition of building a network from where businesses, more so, in China can operate from, HPB has a close connection with NEO. The investment arm of NEO is HPB’s Angel Investor with the “Ethereum of China” keen on using HPB accelerator in their VM.

Another key partner is UnionPay Smart, a state owned firm that handles 80 percent of all China’s financial transactions. UnionPay, the parent company of UnionPay Smart, is literally bigger than Visa and MasterCard combined and that is just the magnanimity of HPB. The partnership could be the largest so far in the blockchain space.

Banyan Network BBN is also determined to bring businesses into blockchain and are therefore partnering with HPB. However, we note that the founders of UnionPay Smart, HPB and Banyan Network BBN are closely tied. Other partners include Cyber Physical Chain or CPC, SharesChain, Bottos or BTO, OK Capital or OKEx, BlockWater Capital, Bixin, Krypital Group, LLC, Xianghe Capital and the list keeps growing.


Tokenomics

Based off Ethereum, the HPB token was ERC-20 compliant and changing hands at $0.22 during their crowd funding between July 1 and Aug 1 2018. Then, the hard cap was set at $5 million but only $2 million was raised from investors. Of the 100 million HPB tokens, only 33 percent were allocated to investors.

The team and the reserve fund were slotted 20 percent each while ecosystem development got 24 percent of the total coins in supply. According to HPB, the Reserve Fund will be set aside for “strategic  investment,  token  exchange,government  cooperation,  response  to industry changes and more”. Besides, all coins will be locked for three years since purchase and once the period elapse, only a third of these coins would be unlocked once per year.

At the time of press, there are 43,619,949 HPB coins in circulation with a daily volume of $5,519,881 and a market cap of $18,838,581 according to data streams from Coin Market Cap. However, investors should not that the annual inflation is capped at three percent but that will double to six percent once there are 150 nodes. Despite last year’s slump—down 86 percent from 2017 peaks of $13.65 of Jan 13, 2018, the coin is changing hands at $0.4318 meaning investors are up 5.5X in ETH and roughly 2X in USD terms.

HPB/ETH Technical Price Analysis

Syncing with the rest of the market, HPB has been on a roller coaster ride. With wide amplitudes, HPB is likely to recover against ETH and other digital asset after sliding 86 percent after printing all-time highs of $13.65. Presently, what we have is a strong reaction from Feb 2019 highs.

Although sellers have reversed gains of May-10, the inverted hammer of May 8 could provide the necessary impetus to help lift prices back to 0.002 ETHs and even 0.003 ETHs or Q1 2019. All the same, investors should only load up on once HPB bulls clear May-10 highs at the back of favorable short-term catalysts.

NB: This is not Financial Advice.


Short-term Price Catalysts

Pound to pound, HPB serve the same purpose as EOS, Ethereum or Tron but with a leaning towards enterprises. Commanding high throughput in China—10K TPS and relatively high TPS at the rest of the world, platform can satisfactorily perform and even exceed goal. In the long term, the lack of public exposure on this asset means it is grossly undervalued as there is government involvement via Unionpay Smart as well as established entities like NEO that at one time was touted to replace Ethereum as its killer.

All the same, it is HPB’s consensus algorithm, the dPoS as well as their specialized hardware nodes incorporating the BoE unit that is a differentiator. Completely decentralized with 150 BOE Nodes of which 31 are HP-Nodes, there is sufficient security. Ideally, 70 percent of all nodes are allocated to the community while the HPB Foundation controls six percent of them all. The other 24 percent is assigned to enterprise invitees as NGOs and others.

Besides, the HPB MainNet upgrade is in progress. The objective was to optimize performance and to implement some key technical breakthroughs. The first phase will be complete on May-17 or at block height of 2560000 while the second will be through by June 10, 2019. By then, exchanges are supposed to upgrade their systems.

At the same time, they already have a strategic partnership with SWFT Blockchain allowing HPB to be exchanged with more than 140 other assets via the SWFT Pay. Besides, there is an “memorandum of understanding (MOU) with DLT Lab – an UK-Government backed distributed ledger accelerator and incubator in London” with the aim of “sourcing and selecting an agreed number of suitable third parties for blockchain development on High Performance Blockchain’s MainNet.”

That, plus Ledger integration, the Scan UI which is ready to roll and the UnionPay smart authorized traceability system V2.0 test Phase combined with Remix.dev, an IDE tool that can operate without the need of downloading, the future is indeed bright. All this will likely be highlighted as HPB attends Consensus 2019 where more announcement and partnerships could be struck.


Long Term Price Catalysts

HPO may be serving the same niche as Ethereum and EOS but they are high rollers. Their partnership with NEO for example is an automatic marketing of their hardware accelerators. At the same time, working with UnionPay Smart city is an indirect government endorsement of a company that plans to achieve solve the blockchain Trillemma: That of striking a healthy balance of resolving the TPS bottleneck common with other networks, increasing scalability while not compromising decentralization.

Apart from UnionPay partnership, another noteworthy collaboration is HPB’s working with the Laya.one. Laya is one of the largest gaming networks in China. To quantify, research shows that up-to 70 percent of all gaming companies in the world’s second largest economy including Tencent, Cheetah and Xianomi use Laya.one infrastructure. In turn, Laya.one will be using HPB’s network and most importantly their BoE unit which is huge for investors. Then there is Knownsec that recently concluded their HPB MainNet code, HPB Wallet and Smart Contracts security audit concluding that “HPB has proved itself to be a high-performing blockchain with high security.” The involvement of Knownsec is huge because the security firm main client is Tencent and other high-capital corporation in China.

Furthermore, their partnership with ITCEC, which is affiliated with China Electronics Corporation (CEC), another state owned company for the development of a smart city off HPB high-throughput platform relays the magnitude and the undervaluation of the HPB token.

Introduction

Thing is, we can rave about blockchain for nights on end. And for good reasons. Blockchain is no doubt a revolutionary technology promoting transparency, decentralization and efficiency. Its touted to disrupt traditional setups and because of infinite applications that can operate on-top of any DLT, the tech is no doubt valuable. That’s why it is garnering interests not only from visionary leaders, leading businesses but from governments keen on improving efficiency and service delivery to the people.


Please give our sponsor a visit since it’s the first DEX that beats centralized exchanges with price and liquidity:

Even so, blockchain cannot operate in isolation. Yes, there are smart contracts which are autonomous, based on mathematics–resembling the underlying platform. However, for maximum value, real-world smart contracts must draw variables from external sources. These trusted sources are called oracles and are essential more so if the smart contract which executes without third parties are dependent on real-word data as triggers.

Introducing Zap

Because of this gap, Zap is stepping in. In their prospectus, they claim to serve, trade and literally “feed” smart contracts with invaluable data. These data are from millions of participants creating a market place for curating feeds. What Zap is doing is bridging the revolutionary world of infinite possibilities made possible by smart contracts with real world data.

Their overall objective is to make sure that smart contracts are not limited and by linking and “activating” smart contracts conditions with arbitrary data, “the blockchain could truly encompass all global value.” Therefore, in a nutshell, Zap is a set of tools allowing for monetizing of data through a decentralized marketplace. Since it is based on blockchain, Zap will be a utility token allowing exploration of ecosystem oracles.

Team

Making this possible is an experienced team, passionate about crypto economics and proven team leaders building oracles within the crypto space.

While the team is made up of more than 30 members, they all depend on the guidance of Nick Spanos who is also the founder of the the Bitcoin Center as well as the Blockchain Technologies Corp. Ben Young, the co-founder, is also a stand-out. Before Zap, he was the managing director at ESports Online for a year. His other stints include time at Blockchain Technologies Corp where he was director of communications for three years and at Bitcoin Center NYC where he was the Communications Director for four and a half years.

Others include Steve Geros leading development, Tom St Laurent as Technical Director and Hamdan Azhar who heads the department of Data Science. Although they seem experienced, most don’t have links to LinkedIn accounts and the founder,for example, makes no mention of Zap in his summary.

Advisors include Sean Combs, a US Rapper, Dwayne Campbell of Goldman Sachs, Danny Zaterman of MIT and Alex Dziejma of Microsoft. Many would know Sean Combs as P Diddy but with the US SEC warnings, his endorsement in any form may automatically have a negative repercussion on the asset prices mostly because of SEC warnings and well, the strive to comply with Howey Test.

Road Map

Towards their objectives, the team is working towards striking partnerships and holding hackatons and running Oracle bounties. Creating a reliable oracle market place linking businesses—subscribers while drawing users and high developers—providers, is vital for their success and is their main value proposition. That is what the team will be doing from mid-Q2 2019. In January this year they launched their mainnet and released the first two oracles for BitStamp and Poloniex. A month later in February, they released MyOracleWallet, ensured they were ETC compliant and by March they held a workshop for creating oracles using Zap SDK.

Partners and Accomplishments

There is a gap that needs to be filled and Zap is actively working towards providing value for the burgeoning smart contract space.

They already have a patent with the founder Spanos speaking before the British Parliament House of Lords. Besides, he has testified before the New York Attorney General on matters Blockchain, cryptocurrencies and regulation. To that end, Zap has been featured in several leading publications like CoinDesk, CoinTelegraph, CNBC and Forbes.

However, their key partners include HitBTC, Changelly, Cryptopia and EtherDelta from where they are listed. With their vision-mission statement, the team is ambitious and it’s only time before they partner with heavy weights.

Tokenomics

Zap is an ERC-20 compliant utility token whose supply was minted once and therefore fixed. The token, Zap, is a utility within the Zap ecosystem used for monetizing feeds as well as access to the platform’s data. In order to create oracles or inquire about data from providers, then the subscriber and provider must “bond” their Zap in an oracle.

The only way to take control over an oracle is through a “dot”, a unit for querying that is neither destructible or interchangeable and the amount released per token depends on supply-demand. This is a diversion away from the peer-to-peer payment model adopted by competing networks but it is by design.

Token Distribution

The aim here is that bonding acts as a first layer refinement tool that first of all incentives discovery. If discovered data is useful then it can be publicized.  There are 520 million Zap tokens and during their ICO, ETH was the only accepted currency. 33 percent was made available to the public while 10 percent of all tokens were set apart for founders and advisors. 47 percent was located for “long-term budgets” while 10 percent will cover for bounty programs.

Fund Distribution and ROI

Since launch, returns have been dismal. Zap is down 0.08X against the USD, 0.19X against ETH and 0.12X against BTC but nonetheless, continued to develop, weathering through the crypto winter.

55 percent of raised funds were dedicated for software development and to cover maintenance, 20 percent for marketing while 10 percent was for administration. Another 10 percent covered operations costs while five percent was set aside for contingency.

ZAP/BTC Price Technical Analysis

At spot rates, Zap is the 570th most valuable asset with a market cap of $2.6 million with a 24 hour trading volumes of around $13. There are 170,229,272 Zap in circulation with a 24 hour high low of  $0.01506399 / $0.01581602. At the time of press, the coin is changing hands at $0.01553, up three percent in the last day but down more than 95 percent after retesting $1.16 on Jan 13, 2018.

From candlestick arrangements, Zap is under pressure and consolidating against BTC and ETH. Note that like most crypto assets, prices are bottoming up with indicators pointing higher meaning despite last year’s losses, we expect prices to expand in coming weeks meaning there is an opportunity for traders to profit should they invest at spot rates.

Price Catalysts

Short-term

Blockchain based smart contract dependent oracles promise to be big. That’s because Oracles are necessary bridges that would draw the best out of smart contracts because of influence of real-word data. Although they are competing projects like ChainLink,  their building of functionalities on top of EOS while simultaneously introducing a vibrant market place for speculators, providers and subscribers is a big differentiator allowing for monetization of data that are the basic building blocks for a successful Internet of Things. Besides, Zap is faster but the system is efficient with a smart contract powered easy to use intuitive interface.

Zap at Consensus

Just to show Zap and Oracle use cases, they have a booth at Consensus 2019 set for New York from May 14 and 15, effectively the smallest cap project in the list of sponsors. Consensus is a big event in the blockchain space. Historically, since launch back in 2015, it is where major announcements are made because the event is by design a tent, housing leading crypto minds. It’s a melting pot attracting developers, cypher punks and enterprise grade consortia and for Zap to be one of the sponsors is huge.

Building and Prototyping

There, they will show case their core product and with their Oracle up and running, this a huge boost to Zap. Note that their overall objective this quarter is to strike deals with different partners. With the Zap Contract Builder for Android 1.0.10, there is no need of internet connection for local combination and that will be of help as they showcase political oracles and their use of upsetting political apple cart. After that, developers would compete to create their political oracles. There is also be a speech from Ron Paul, a former presidential candidate.

Apart from political oracles, Zap’s Armenian team is building the first prototype that will anonymously draw blockchain useful patient’s data from an infusion pump useful for research and even patient compensation.

Long-Term

Clearly, Zap is in the early stages of a potential disruption. Through the spirit of blockchain, there is complete decentralization and oracles will fuel the next wave of blockchain revolution. Oracles as it is will connect different databases magnifying the value of smart contracts. Concurrently, providers will monetize their data ensuring participants are satisfactorily incentivized.

Sentivate is a realistic revolution of the web under the Arity umbrella. Determined to upgrade the existing internet architecture, creators of Sentivate are after building a hybrid web, introducing cryptocurrency and creating a connection between centralized and decentralized systems. Although the system bears some aspects of cryptocurrency and blockchain, the new Sentivate web is centralized focused, that is, not based on blockchain but the main differentiator is their incorporation of decentralized systems to enhance processes.

Complementing Sentivate is Viat, a parallel network-only accessible via the Sentivate network through a browser supporting the universal web– for executing smart contract and cryptocurrency operations. Unlike Sentivate, Viat is completely decentralized, but enhanced by a dedicated web of centralized systems.

The architects behind the open source Sentivate are not after an evolution but are as pragmatic as possible, aware that Sentivate implementation can be through software but are realistic enough to acknowledge that wholesome implementation would demand a hardware modification of the existing internet infrastructure.  

As part of their viable and realistic revolution, Sentivate plans to introduce the universal web that incorporates its native coin, Viat, by replacing the Domain Name System with Domain Information System, the HTTP/S with UDSP and later introduce the Universal Identity System made up of the Identity Registrar to bring about identify in the web and Identify Certificates geared towards encryption, privacy and authentication, streamlining the otherwise wild west of the internet.

The Team

Sentivate has a dedicated and an all-rounded team. They are experts from diverse fields including mathematics, computer science, military, law and even biology. The co-founder, Lew Knopp, for example is a veteran and a former Navy Seal.  Lew’s company, Templar Titan Inc, offers “professional support to industry, corporate leadership, and government.”  

Thomas Marchi, a developer and a co-founder has been building tools for Arity for the last five years. His skill sets include “Building Marketing Tools, JS Frameworks, CSS frameworks, Social Networks, Chat Applications & BigData Applications.”

Meanwhile, Matt Karasiewicz has a background in Finance and like Thomas, has been working with Arity from 2014.

Advising the team is Jamie Linkowski, who is their business advisor. Jamie is the president of Primesolutions Advisors LLC, the chairman of OneVision enterprises LLC and member of board at C-Leveled. Others include Ali Alexander, advising the team on marketing, Tyler Swope driving the project’s crypto outreach, Sherpa, Ed Karasiewicz, PhD shading gems on technical matters and Robert Brunelli, Sentivate’s legal advisor.

Road Map

Uniquely, unlike most projects Sentivate’s road map is updated quarterly at the end of the third month. In May, the main objective will be the replacement of the Universal web key component from Domain Name System to the Domain Information System (DIS). DIS is crucial as it provides cryptographic from sites. In June the team will be all in developing an identity system to prevent Sybil attacks through a cryptographic trust that sign off new identity certificates entering the network. Then later in July, end of Q2, they will launch an open browser that demonstrates how the new DIS and Identity system works.

All the same, the bottom line or the core objective of the team is to avert a crisis already visible with the adoption of HTTP3. It make sense, as internet penetration increase, adoption rates will naturally rise, heaping pressure on bandwidth, which if nothing is done, will eventually run out while draining billions. Sentivate’s goal is now to stem and/or mitigate that eventuality.

Therefore, part of their ambitious plans is to get mainstream companies like Microsoft or Google for example to adopt protocol, the new DIS system they are proposing—Sentivate’s value proposition– into their operating systems and browsers.

“(Internet companies and providers are) spending billions of dollars to clear the traffic jams and rebuild the Internet on the fly—an effort that is widely considered to be as crucial for the digital revolution as the expansion of computer power.”

That way not only will they save millions but stand to make more towards their goal, Sentivate plans of making their network quantum resistance in the next five to 10 years and to that end, they shall opt for Supersingular Isogeny Key Exchanges.

Partners

To advance their goals, Sentivate is always looking for new partners to work with. Some of them include Templar Titan, Cyber Titan and Arity.

Rumors are that a new exchange is working to list SNTVT but for now current exchanges include Idex, LAtoken, Stex and Token Store from where the ERC-20 SNTVT token is traded against several digital assets including Ethereum (ETH).

Token Details

Sentivate, SNTVT, is an ERC-20 compliant utility token granting access to “used to gain access to the early stages of the Sentivate Network, development process and voting.” By holding SNTVT tokens, delegates can vote supporting a project and pushing them in a given direction and the more the coins held, the stronger the voting power. By default, delegates are granted access to Sentivate’s applications like browsers—and will soon launch an open source browser for demonstration purposes in days ahead, server and client modules and various applications offered by Sentivate.

In total there are 4.2 billion SNTVT tokens of which delegates hold 2.15 billion. The rest are split between the team—840 million and advisors 210 million. However, later when their Sentivate web launches in 2021, these SNTVT tokens will be swapped for Viat coin at a ratio of 1 VIAT: 1000 SNTVT in a reverse split. Note this, Sentivate are very explicit, token possession doesn’t confer ownership.  Their network will be hybrid employing a dynamic proof of work with 42 million Viat coins in circulation. Out of that 90 percent will be mined and the rest swapped during migration.

Token Distribution

There is no ICO and as Thomas said, Sentivate is self-sufficient because Arity has clients with multiple apps that will turn in profits and oil the network contributing to development. Even so, there was a private sale open to a few with wholesale prices of tokens below 25k selling at 10-15 cents per token and those above at around 0.00008010 ETH per-token.

For users interested in owning SNTVT tokens, they can participate in their Bounty program. There, for fans who spread out what Sentivate is up-to via Discord affiliate, YouTube and Medium, they can receive up-to 5000 SNTVT tokens as reward. Anyhow, for those who got in first and registered for free SNTVT airdrop.

SNTVT/ETH Price Analysis

Technically, and like most asset prices, SNTVT is bullish and within a bullish breakout pattern. From the chart, Apr-23 bull bar anchors our analysis as it has above average transaction volumes—77 million. At the moment, bears are retesting Mar-2019 highs but we expect prices to rebound from spot rates in a trend continuation phase now that the retest phase is complete. If that is the case, SNTVT will likely soar above 0.0000208 ETHs.

Short-term Considerations

The quality of a project is not about what they talk of but more of how they execute as they gradually inch closer to their goal. Comparing Sentivate’s GitHub activities with say, Nexus, there it is easy, at first glance to differentiate the quality of their commits. The latter do submit commits in a flurry while Sentivate’s pushes out a handful of high-quality commits at a time. That’s the first differentiator and a hint of what’s to come. When we add that to their ambition of making the internet better, faster and cheaper for providers perhaps even saving them billions of dollars through a universal web rolled out in a realistic, revolutionary manner then it is clear that the asset is undervalued.

Should companies like Microsoft, Apple and Google buy in to their idea and adopt their protocol and all of what they are proposing, then not only will we have a new web that streamlines processes but the world wouldn’t have to deal with bandwidth limitations. In July, Sentivate will launch their first open source browser for demonstration purposes.

Then again, the team didn’t public sale their tokens as they are self sufficient with Arity rolling out different applications that will guarantee the project’s profitability. The only limitation at the moment is low liquidity as daily trading volumes as we can glean from major exchanges is roughly 195 ETHs. However, that is about to change after their recent listing at IDEX (Aurora).

Long-term Considerations

In the long-term, it’s all about the bottom line. Universal web may demand hardware reconfiguration for applicability.

It may be slow, even taking decades-spurred by mega companies buying into their idea, but the benefits are many considering Sentivate calling for revolutionary technology replacing existing components that will guarantee internet providers are better placed to keep up with increasing bandwidth demand estimated to growing at 22 percent per year.

The team is ahead of their development schedule, have a secure network that prevent replay, amplification as well as vulnerabilities associated with UDP and 0-RTT as they seek to upgrade the internet in readiness for IoT and other bandwidth demanding applications, it’s only a matter of time before the benefits of a Universal Web permeates.

Introducing Lition

Lition seeks to be a blockchain standard for business and to that end the  team is building the first of a kind, advanced scalable private-public blockchain with deletable data feature suitable for entities. As such, blockchain based companies launching their applications from a distributed back-end can actually step out of their niche in readiness for commercial deployment thanks to a state of the art protocol that is co-innovated by Dr. Jürgen Müller, the CIO at SAP.


Please give our sponsor a visit since it’s the first DEX that beats centralized exchanges with price and liquidity:

Lition team is based in Berlin and their mantra is to “bring power to the people” and towards achieving this novel goal, they are going green with the aim of deploying their solutions to enterprises across the globe.

Already, Lition is progressing and after a successful ICO, the team has a working product, a P2P Energy dApp, that has been in commercial operations since Apr-2018. Besides, they did successful launch their MVP test-net. Their P2P Energy dApp is fully functional, in operation across 11 German cities serving more than 41 million households thanks to the firm’s approval as a licensed energy supplier demonstratively saving customers 20 percent off their energy bills and simultaneously increasing revenue by up-to 30 percent.

Team

Behind Lition is a tenacious team led by Dr. Richard Lohwasser who holds a PhD.D. in energy economics and an all-rounded IT specialist and a blockchain expert. He also founded Clanintern.de and before joining Lition he was the Managing Director of Germany’s leading energy supplier, ExtraEnergie, overseeing more than 350 employees and revenue exceeding $1 billion.

Another team member is Dr. Kyung-Hun Ha who is the COO and co-founder who before Lition was a a senior director responsible for operations at GASAG, a US$ 1.4 billion leading energy supplier in Germany. Others include Dr. Manfred Gabriel, Jan Wiedenhaupt and Reinhard Lohwasser all of who are board members.

Advising Lition are Dr. Jürgen Müller, the Technology Advisor and CTO and Board Member of SAP, Kelly Ford who advises on Marketing, Sang-Seop Lee of Korea Block Chain Association (KBCA) and Prof. Dr. Markus Bick, a research expert.

Roadmap

As they inch closer to their goals of “bringing power to the people”, their successful ICO coupled with a working product mean their plans for this quarter—Q2 2019 is on course. Before July, they will launch smart grid use cases as well as a STO use case outside of real estate with a partner.

After that they shall privately release their mainnet and migrate different use cases to this mainnet before the start of the Genesis phase. In Q3 2019 they shall concentrate on growing their partner networks, publicly release their mainnet, launch the first STO and onboard dApp partners.

Partners

The involvement of Dr. Jürgen Müller of SAP as the Technology Advisor means Lition has a strong partnership with SAP. SAP is an established multi-billion company with more than 400 million users with more than 10,000 users. Innovating, SAP is developing a decentralized ledger with smart contracting capabilities with Lition providing the open source consensus layer.

Other notable partners include LongHash, Microsoft, Alpha Labs, Gasag, Advisum, Tokeny and Stanford Business. Apart from these mainstays, Lition has a contract with South Africa’s Nesa Capital, a op 10 solar power plant operator in South Africa with the goal of “exploring potential opportunities to eventually deploy the first commercially live peer to peer energy trading platform in South Africa.”


Lition Tokenomics

Because of a working product and their vision, Lition token sale was pretty successful. The ICO concluded after eight days between Mar 18, 2019 and Mar 26, 2019 as both soft and hard caps at $2 million and $5 million were struck in record time. It only took 13 minutes for their white listing to conclude raising $300k and 18 minutes for the public sale where $1.5 million was raised. Only BTC and ETH were accepted currencies.

Based off Ethereum, Lition (LIT) is an ERC-20 utility token with a total supply of 145 million. 39 percent or 58 million LITs were distributed to investors and each LIT changed hands at $0.1. Of note is that the token sale was geared towards enterprise contributors and not speculators. As such, there were no bonuses and all private sale contributors are locked for 3–6 months.

Apart from that, there is a Buy-Back option after six months as well as a HODL Highway program which is essentially a “choice between receiving an additional bonus of up to 25 percent via the HODL Highway, or a reduced downside of 50 percent of initial investment dollar amount via the Refund Program.”

Statistics indicate that the coin is changing hands at $0.136358 in Bitbox, IDEX, HotBit, Dicoin and Bilaxy with a low market cap of $3,522,621. As a result, ROI in USD is X1.26.

LIT/ETH Technical Price Analysis

At spot rates, LIT/ETH is up 36 percent since launch. It has a $762,958 in daily volumes and up 7.3 percent in the last hour. All the same, it has seen great runs in the last few weeks against similar projects like LTO, QNT and MITX. At spot rates, immediate resistance lies at 0.00092 ETHs and thanks to last week’s stellar gains,we expect prices to inch higher, close above this lie as bulls seek to drive LIT prices to above ATHs of 0.0015 ETHs. Everyone is waiting for the airdrop of bonus tokens happening tomorrow and once the price holds we think that investors will be confident that prices hold and might even start buying.

Disclaimer: This is not Financial Advice.

Short term price catalysts

Here’s a thing or two about energy, going green and the well-being of the planet: conservation is upon us. That is why Lition is taking the initiative and rolling out a peer-to-peer energy trading. It’s a working product serving millions of households and drawing in revenue for Lition. With a working product and a GDPR compliant blockchain infrastructure that prioritize enterprises, investors should be positive on what lies ahead. Thanks to this clarity, new partners launching their dApp on this scalable network are sure that their client’s data are secure with consumers aware of the kind of data collected and better still can access these data on demand.

Aside from that there is involvement of SAP through Dr. Jürgen Müller. SAP is working on their blockchain and will incorporate Lition’s solutions. The fact that there are heavy weights like SAP and other influential partners like Microsoft is a hint of what lies ahead. Already, they have a deal with Nesa Capital of South Africa and plan on growing their partner network in Q3 2019.

Add that to the fact that the CEO is advising the German government on STO Framework while at the same time planning to launch the first STO this quarter before ramping up in the second half of the year is overwhelmingly bullish in the short to medium term for a coin that is changing hands for less than 20 cents. Even if LIT liquidity and market cap is low, it is because the team plans for the asset to trade from different exchanges as demand flows in lifting price.

Long term price catalysts

But what is interesting and this should pique the interest of hodlers is what is in store in the long term. Already Lition is a project has strong partners from the very beginning. If anything, the involvement of SAP’s cogs will add some credibility, attracting other projects. Of the infinite number of companies that can launch and successfully run their apps from through Lition’s high throughput and scalable blockchain, Nesa Capital of South Africa and Tomo Chain are the first.

Nesa Capital, a ” Top 10 solar power plant operator in South Africa” have ” signed a contract to begin exploring potential opportunities to eventually deploy the first commercially live peer-to-peer energy trading platform in South Africa.” Meanwhile, Tomo Chain, a ” Blockchain infrastructure that allows for a highly secure, low latency, and near-zero fee transactional system” have a deal where the two platforms will cooperate on technical integration and business development.

Sooner or later, projects seeking to comply with Europe’s GDPR regulation and leverage on Lition’s side-chains and deletability features while enjoying privacy and speed will flock to the platform. Because of their gravitation towards simplifying processing and acting as a secure layer where light clients of IoT devices can run from, there is instant value for LIT coins.

Furthermore, there are other benefits for the end user willing to stake their LIT tokens. To qualify, one will need at-least1000 LIT tokens which fluctuate depending on market conditions.

However, this will be done on a per side-chain basis which in turn requires subscription and rewards will be then based on transaction volumes of the subscribed side-chain and amounts staked. On the other hand, miners willing to stake must own a minimum of 20,000 LIT tokens.


Please be aware that the information from this article might be slightly outdated since the Flexa team has their focus on product and will release product and up to date information during a HUGE release event at Consensus 2019 on May 13th.

Creators of Flexa are an ambitious lot. They are bringing forth new money. It’s faster, cheaper, secure and a solution that solves what the community wants, unlocking $250-$500 billion in cryptocurrencies levitating in digital ether. Flexa is therefore an innovative payment network through which you can spend your cryptocurrency, instantly.


Discover great trading opportunities with our partner
Larger trades are often cheaper with combined liquidity than executing on a single exchange like Kraken, Huobi or Binance

The reliability stems from the distributed network in blockchain from where the Flex Network Protocol (FNP) operates from, differentiating itself from competitors coupling their operations with Visa and other alternatives which are fast but nonetheless centralized.

Powering the Flexa network is a scalable collateral token, Flexa Coin (FXC) and interfaced with Flexa App still in private beta.  Flexa App uses a barcode at the point of sale to effect instant payments.

Starbucks, H&M, Tesco and other big retailers seem to be working with Flexa from the beginning.

I just bought a Starbucks coffee with Bitcoin with the Flexa @FlexaHQ beta app! pic.twitter.com/09EQozFW5u— MISSNATOSHI ?? (@missnatoshi) July 13, 2018

Beta testing has been going on with the biggest retailers of the world and will enable real payments in crypto without the use of existing visa and other creditcard networks for the first time.

Team

Quite distinctively, Flexa team is qualified and with decades of experience needed to take this platform forward. Key co-founders include Tyler Spalding, Trevor Filter and Zachary Kilgore. Others are Daniel McCabe and Ryan Records. These experts worked for institutions like NASA, MIT Labs, PayPal and Starbucks.

A standout is Tyler Spalding, a co-founder of Flexa, who have been actively involved in cryptocurrencies since 2011 and with more than 20 years experience in technology experience. He brings with him experience from Raise, where he was the Chief Technology Officer. Raise claims to be the world’s largest gift market place turning in $1 billion in revenue after drawing in $150 million in from venture capital.

Similarly, Daniel McCabe, who also doubles up as chief compliance officer and general counsel is, will guide the team in adherence with applicable laws and/or requirements.

Advisors include Luke Gebb, the SVP of Amex, Mark Jamison of Global Head of Innovation at Visa as well as Pete Woodhouse, a former CTO of PayPal credit. Combined, they bring a wealth of experience in technology and retail payments and are instrumental to the platform’s success.

Roadmap (product launch in 4 weeks)

Flexacoin will release their long awaited app during Concensus 2019 on May 13th. The known roadmap is slightly outdated and we expect Flexa to update it soon after product launch. Flexa plans to launch e-commerce integration testing followed by launch in Europe and Asia in Jul and Sep 2019. In Oct and Dec, they will launch a public FNP access for developers. These measures will help Flexa realize its goal of a global payment gateway after launching on May, 13.

Tokenomics

Powering the network is the Flexa Coin utility token. Based off Ethereum, the token is based on the ERC-20 standard and there will be a total of 100 billion FXCs. That said, only 40 billion are in supply.

Flexacoin development team recently conducted a successful ICO with a haul of $14.4 Million after selling 16 billion FXC tokens. In the crowd sale, the private sale price per token was $0.001. From this private sale 11.5 B tokens were released in January with the rest of the private sale 4.5 B tokens to be unlocked in January 2020. At the moment, it is calculated that the unlocked circulating supply is between 11.5 Billion and 18 Billion which seems really good compared to the total supply. The team will soon clarify the final numbers.

20 billion tokens have been reserved for the team with a five-year vesting period.

According to data from CoinMarketCap, FXC is changing hands at around $0.002302 with a ROI of 135 percent, but it could be higher because FXC peaked at $0.002750 in Apr-17, 2019.

FXC/ETH Price Analysis

At the time of press, FXC daily volume is $93,288 and changing hands at 0.0000143 ETHS. Despite what it tries to achieve, the token’s liquidity is low and trading at IDEX, where it is paired against ETH. At spot rates, the coin is up 5.41 percent but still a long way from its ATHs at 0.00003844 ETHs last printed when it listed in IDEX.

Moving on, we expect some movement around the launch—roughly three weeks from now set on May 13, and that would perhaps increase liquidity and depth as bull drive prices towards the coin’s ATHs.

Notice that FXC prices are in range mode and from an effort versus result point of view, bearish because Feb-14 bear bar did engulf Feb-13’s. But future trend is largely dependent on whether prices will fall below Feb-14 support at 0.00000054 ETH. If the latter is the case then FXC could sink, registering new lows discouraging participation.

Price Catalysts

Flexacoin is a project with tremendous upsides because of its real world utility function. In the short-term, the fact that Flexa, based in New York, will be the biggest sponsors of the Consensus set for May 13-15, 2019 at the New York Hilton Midtown.

By doing so it joins the rank with Microsoft, BitGo and Bakkt, as Flexa reveal their real desire of being a key player in this space.  Traditionally, is where all those exceptional networking happens as it is a melting pot for “entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, traders, developers, academics, students and the curious” keen on collaborating and debating the future of blockchain. Flexa will therefore use this opportunity to make big announcements concerning its immediate future.

Moreover, there are reports of large retail companies jumping on board. The American retail giants like Starbucks and H&M can provide immense latitude for Flexa. This will increase its market drastically and herald a huge jump in token prices. After all, it is not hard to see why. What Flexa represent is  rarity, the first of its kind, a trailblazing solution and based off blockchain touching and impacting consumers positively. Flexa will offer their solutions cheaply, securely and because of blockchain, there is no fraud.

Finally, Flexa was successful in raising $14.1 million from amongst many investors,  Pantera Capital and Nima Partners. Pantera is a reputable name in investment circles and the fact that they are involved means they are optimistic and their assessment of the project reveal that Flexa is indeed solving a need and filling a gap.

Besides, Flexa did well in their private sale and the additional investments will definitely improve on the initial gains. With the $14.1 million in funding, Tyler said it will be channeled towards “developing network infrastructure as they support their retail network and strategic partners.”

In the long term, Flexa will leverage strategic partnerships and efficient payments to be a leading light in cryptopayments. With the Flexa app, it will be possible to integrate the payment option in big consumer apps. To make this a reliaty, they will add various exchange-issued stablecoins and other crypto assets. This will increase the versatility of the Flexa App not just to holders of certain coins. In the meantime, there are partnerships with exchanges and merchants to make custom on-and-off ramps via the Flexa protocol.


Overly, merchant acceptance will ultimately be the X-factor in mainstream adoption. This is because the power of some of these retail brands is immense. Such collaborations would be a massive catalyst.

Another great thing for boosting FXC token demand will be staking once the network is live. Staking offers alternative investment opportunities that results in capital inflow at the same time entrenching decentralization. We have heard of great staking incentives being prepared but these need to be updated by the team more accurately.

Finally, we expect the biggest exchanges to be listing Flexa in the coming months and the team has been focusing on this for some time now to get great availability of the FXC token after product launch May 13th.

Morpheus Labs is an innovative platform that seeks to connect the business world and blockchain. This is through its enterprise-grade platform and an additional blockchain app marketplace. It has a service called the Blockchain as a service platform (BPaaS) through which companies can build applications.


Please give our sponsor a visit since it’s the first DEX that beats centralized exchanges with price and liquidity:

Moreover, the platform also supports hosting for Blockchain network nodes and off-chain applications. Morpheus therefore tests and deploys dApps for companies to successfully leverage them to get the best returns.

Team

Morpheus Labs operate from Singapore. The significant figures in the project are Chuang Pei-Han, Branson Lee, Dorel D. Burcea and Bruce Lu Yang. Chuang is a seasoned entrepreneur having served seven years in the banking sector while Branson is a former member of the Singapore Fintech Association with more than a decade in business and partnership as well. Altogether, this is a dedicated and competent team of business minds and technocrats that can take MITX places.

Roadmap

The Morpheus website features a roadmap with a ‘business’ and ‘technical’ section. Morpheus labs did conduct a successful ICO in 2018. In 2019, the focus now is on improving partnerships and launching a new blockchain curriculum/academy.  An example of such partnership is the Software as a Service (SaaS) platform will allow customers and partners to leverage our emerging technologies with their legacy infrastructure (such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERPs). This will go on in Q2 2019 through to Q4 2019.

Important Partnerships

Some important partnerships include: QuarkChain, Veritag, Vechain, Sure international and NEM. These are notable entities in cryptocurrency, technology and logistics circles. The partnerships give Morpheus great latitude and room for growth.

Tokenomics

The Morpheus crowd funding ended on April 16, 2018 where each ERC-20 compliant utility token in MITX was sold at $0.10. The ICO raised approximately $9.6 million of the $10 million hard cap receiving 4-stars from ICOBench, a ratings platform.

At current rates, the ROI is as follows: USD= X 0.13, ETH= X 0.64 and BTC = X 0.21. The downturn in the market definitely affected MITX prices. Investors are apparently struggling to break even.

Token distribution was as follows:

25 percent or 200 million MITX utility tokens were available for sale. The total supply is 800 MITX with a market capitalization of $3,044,895 according to data from CoinMarketCap. Even so, daily volumes are light at $146,536.

Price Analysis

According to data streams from HitBTC, MITX, like most assets, is correcting after last week’s rally. From the chart it we have a series of higher highs and connecting lows print a clear uptrend. Besides, notice that MITX is trading within a bullish breakout pattern against ETH. Typical of a correction, ETH do have an upper hand, at least for now, before MITX bull flow driving prices from 0.0000865 ETHs or $0.014 to above Mar 31 highs at 0.000125 ETHs or $0.021. Notice that the retest is complete and MITX has support at previous resistance now support at $0.014meaning that MITX may continue printing going forward.

Short Term and Long-Term Price Catalysts

Morpheus Labs value proposition is from creating a simple channel from where business can adopt DLTs in their day-to-day operations. By doing the leg work for projects–saving them up-to 50 percent of costs, and simultaneously allowing founders to deal with immediate and pressing concerns, the BPaaS, is attractive.

In the short-term, MITX prospects are rosy. Apart from recovering ETH and BTC prices which are outside the control of MITX, at core the team ensure that investors are incentivized to participate. As a result, there is a token economy in place where MITX holders are set to receive part of the platform’s revenue drawn from subscription fees. Furthermore, to eliminate on-boarding friction, Morpheus Labs will be purchasing the token from the open market on behalf of the customer via the platform’s treasury partners including OTCs. Combined, MITX gas payments, subscription fees payable in MITX and the platform buying tokens from secondary markets is bullish for the coin.

Additionally, Morpheus Labs has a solid road map. In five years they want to be a go-to platform and that mean striking partnerships with multiple exchanges for listing purposes as well as on-boarding several Fortune-200 companies, one big four accounting and audit firm as well as increasing their blockchain partners. All this is according to insights drawn from Pei-Han, the CEO of Morpheus Labs in a recent interview.

GoDex and Switcheo are DEXs rumored to be negotiating but the bottom line is that Morpheus Labs are keen on collaborating with reputable on-ramps. At the moment, liquidity is still low but investors can trade MITX against ETH and BTC at HitBTC and against ETH at IDEX here: https://idex.market/eth/mitx. Other MITX supporting exchanges include Liquid, FCoin and Coinsuper. With the awareness that partners shall pay listing fees denominated in MITX, there is assurance of demand which in turn lift prices.

In the long term though, it is where the real value lies and therefore worth hodling the token. First, Morpheus‘s integration with VeChain, a platform that is specifically designed to address fallibilities around supply chain, identity, logistics and internet of thing is a big plus.  Other protocol partners include QuarkChain, NEM, Neurochain and Nuls.  The objective here is to increase the “breadth of blockchain choices” as it offers a competitive advantage for Morpheus.  

Other collaborations include that with Argos Solutions—specialized in compliance, SmartMind who are experts in  Big Data and with Hanwha Dreamplus—a start-up accelerator both of south Korea. Although bound by several NDAs, we can glean from what’s floating around that Morpheus plans to partner with Amazon Web Services. Besides, they are taking advantage of Singapore’s initiative and working closely towards achieving Singapore’s government objectives. When we morph this, it’s no doubt that forging symbiotic relationships with similar or superior DLTs and working closely with government agencies tags with it credibility and trust.

Bolt is a versatile cryptocurrency ecosystem and wallet that aims at decentralizing a range of digital content services. This ecosystem will be especially relevant for phone users, and content creators in emerging markets. The overall objective is for Bolt to be a trustless network for a self-sustaining entertainment network.


Please give our sponsor a visit since it’s the first DEX that beats centralized exchanges with price and liquidity:

The platform increases access to digital content by reducing streaming cost and speed requirements and also facilitating direct streaming to mobile phones through mobile apps. Unlike most platforms, Bolt runs on top of Ziliqa blockchain and so far, the network has more than 3 million users complete with an Android and web streaming app. Uniquely, Bolt plans to serve all client base and even low bandwidth smartphone users can experience first class delivery in a secure and a reliable manner.

Considering what the platform objectives are, powering their operations via Ziliqa is reasonable as the network is the first high throughput blockchain with scalability in mind. The blockchain has been featured in Forbes, allows direct connection between users and creators while processing transactions at speeds of up-to 2828 TPs.

Team

Bolt has a global team reflecting its global outlook and focus on emerging markets. In total there are 30 members spread across four offices across different continents. That said, some significant figures include: Jamal Hassim (founder and CEO), Christel Quek (Co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer), Lynn Morales, Julian Jackson, Jean Poireau and Niall Deegan.

Advisors include Jack Yeu, the co-founder and COO of Switcheo Network, Trevor Healy—the Managing Partner of Sansa Advisors and four others. The team is diverse but shares a common wealth in experience in technology, marketing, and content creation.

This is a vivid show that the project is ran by a team of experience experts, proven investors and strategists keen on making the project a success.

Bolt Roadmap

Naturally, the Bolt team is keen on growth especially in emerging markets. These are often overlooked by many cryptocurrency projects. The second quarter of 2019 will occasion the launch of Phase 2.0 Bolt Data Bolt tokens are bundled with data plans with telcos for mainstream adoption. This will enable users to use their tokens to purchase data bundles globally when Phase 3 launch in Q3 and 4 of this year.

Important Partnerships

Bolt has a raft of reputable partners. These include TV stations such as Citizen TV and NTV of Kenya, Al Jazeera, NHK World which you can stream live using the mobile app. Others include Rakuten, Kenyan Telecommunication powerhouse Safaricom and the Cricket body ICC. These partnerships are important not only because of content but also how important copyright issues are in streaming.

Tokenomics

The total supply is 1billion BOLTs which are ERC-20 utility tokens which in the future can be swapped for Ziliqa tokens.  Each token was available at: 1 BOLT = USD 0.03. 25 percent of tokens will be available for sale.

Token Distribution will be as follows: 40 percent of the total supply, 400 million will be allocated to Token Generation Event and 150 million will cater for Bolt Research. Note that Bolt Research is in essence a separate entity that will work on research, improving the Bolt ecosystem. Besides, they will be involved in marketing and engaging the community. This activity enables Bolt to raise capital for the self-sustaining entertainment platform to be a reality.

A further 20 percent will go towards Strategic and Content partners and another 200 million assigned to the team while 5 percent will be to incentivize the community through rewards. It’s ICO ended in Sep 2018 raising $9 million of the $12 million hard cap.

Price Analyses

At spot rates, the BOLT token is changing hands at $0.021 after sliding from peaks of $0.052 printed on Mar 25. The data available on CoinMarketcap.com is for April 2019 and shows a stable price averaging at about $ 0.025 USD range. At the time of the exchange distribution the price went down to the $0.01USD range but picked up in the course of time. This means that the ceiling for prices could be considerably higher in the next couple of months.

You can trade for the coin at https://bitmax.io/#/trade/usdt/bolt . However, this is not financial advice

The chart below is a representation of Bolt token prices in early April as extracted from coinmarketcap:

Price Catalysts

There are certain factors that can boost Bolt prices considerably in the short term. They include the data bundle possibilities in this quarter of 2019. For instance, users in Malaysia, who are Digi customers (over 11 M subscribers), will soon be able to use Bolt tokens to top up their mobile data plans. This is vital in increasing the footprint and price of the token. Other factors include:

  • A top 5 exchange listing and more marketing activity on platforms like Twitter.
  • Bolt Team has committed to re-purchase and burn up to 40% of BOLT tokens with their future profit and first burn will be anounced soon.
  • Broadcasting Criket World Cup 2019
  • BOLT Nasdaq Event April 30rd

In the long term, the partnerships Bolt has with mega Telcos and TV companies will provide access to a market in the hundreds of millions. An example is the cricket ICC content which is a staple for many in the Asian market and emerging markets. Above all, the innovative and experienced team will vital to success.

Please give our sponsor a visit since it’s the first DEX that beats centralized exchanges with price and liquidity:

Product and Token Utility

To understand Eterbase, you have to look at problems with some of the pioneer exchanges in existence. The likes of Binance have had to suspend registration at one point or another. This is because their systems could not cope with demand and fast service. Eterbase has a robust operational and technological infrastructure on par with the large banks and Wall Street firms.

The project came to life in April 2018.  Additionally, the project has a native token called xBase that provides liquidity to the platform. The Eterbase exchange is different because of its unique product.  This exchange can facilitate heavy-duty Trade and is compliant with regulations such as KYC, AML, CTF, and GDPR. These cover for all key European regulations.

The exchange also comes with a mobile app to ease operations. Moreover, you can have sub-accounts to manage different portfolios on the same platform. Social trading is also possible since you can connect with top traders. Top traders receive a commission for information shared.

This platform solves problems with existing exchanges such as: Scalability problems in exchanges, delayed transaction confirmations, slow customer support and regulatory and listing requirements.

Eterbase Team

The Eterbase team is from Vaduz, Liechtenstein. The main figures are co-founders Robert Auxt and Kenneth Kumor who take the business lead and project lead respectively. The official registration name is Eterbase AG under the corporate number FL-0002.570.473. The team comprises of experienced individuals in business and tech with Robert having served at the board level of the European Investment Bank and European Stability Mechanism. These are organizations with multi-billion dollar balance sheets and bode well for xbase.  Other Notable figures are Martin Smutny the CTO and Jozef Brhel.

Project Roadmap

Eterbase raised 7 million dollars from the sale of xbase during the ICO. This was a haul enough for the development to move forward with intended goals in the roadmap.

Q2 2019- The current quarter will come with the launch of a crypto to fiat exchange with a structural framework to back it up. This is obviously a critical part of the exchange.

Q 4- 2019- After launch, the next significant milestone is the launch of iOS and Android applications.

Q1 2020-Early next year ETERBASEwill issue its own version of pre-paid debit cards.

Important Partnerships

By virtue of Eterbase’s commercial and utility functions, partners are crucial to the success of this exchange.

Eterbase Tokenomics and ICO Details

The Eterbase (xBase) token is the native coin of the exchange. With a total supply of 1 billion tokens, the development team clearly went all out in the launch of this coin. The token is ERC20-compliant and therefore compatible with Ethereum wallets.

The project did conduct a successful ICO to fund its operations. The total haul from the token sale was $7 million with an ICO price of 0.0150 USD per token. The ICO started on Oct 18, 2018 and ended Dec 11, 2018.

Accordingly, the development team put in place incentives for significant token holders. They earn what is called premium membership. The perks of this include zero trading fees, direct support, upto 100 portfolios and direct market access.  This tiered membership makes owing more tokens a whole lot more advantageous. Overall, the Eterbase ICO was successful with websites like ICO Bench awarding it a rating of 4.2/5.

Price Analysis

In cryptocurrency circles, Eterbase is still a new project having listed on CoinMarketCap only in March. You cannot fairly look at the track record for clout as this is a project very much in the future. At the time of writing, the project had completed token sale with a hardcap of 480 million xbase tokens sold. This hardcap success indicates that investors have full confidence in the project which is always good. The project has a tremendous upside not only for its regulatory compliance but also the technical prowess.

xBase/ETH Technical Analysis

XBASE started to rise from accumulation fase end of March and went up to highs of 0.00007. The price looks to have broken out of a falling wedge formation and seems to continue bullish price action to newer highs.

That said, the price is not yet reflective of the entirety of this project as long-term catalysts are sure to add enthusiasm and investor confidence. However in the short to medium term, rising Ethereum (ETH) prices would likely lift xBase prices. Nonetheless, xBase prices may seem lower than to similar products like $DGTX, $BTMX, $KCS, $HT and $BNB but will definitely catch up especially when we factor in catalysts.

Eterbase can offer insane scalability which will become a more apparent need as the coin community grows larger. With the registration as an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) in Europe to be approved, Eterbase can really explode. This is because access and collaboration with European banks is the Holy Grail for the project. Approval will enable Eterbase to issue a fully operational International Bank Price analyses.There are certain specific factors that can positively impact Xbase prices. They are as follows:

Short Term Catalysts

  • The launch of the crypto to fiat exchange by the end of April with (International Bank Account Numbers) IBAN accounts for users by end of April. This will put all operations in motion. IBAN opens access to 31 European markets which can be huge for Eterbase.
  • Moreover, the multiple IEO (initial exchange offering) project signed for Launchpad of tokens on Eterbase. Xbase is probably needed to participate.
  • Notably, the tier membership means that there is up to 1 million XBASE locked for Premium memberships: This is an incentive for large scale investors who bring institutional money which can be a great boost.

What of long term performance? The following events can bode well for Eterbase token performance even into the distant future;

Long Term Catalysts

  • The automated Masternode and staking integration for listed coins is something many investors look forward to. Masternodes are an investment opportunity in their own right and premium account holders in particular will benefit.
  • The introduction of margin trading.
  • Personal wallet storage to replace the existing arrangement. Eterbase currently stores your assets and the converse will be a confidence booster,
  • Debit cards for all users which make payments easier.
  • Fiat to crypto conversion for all g20 coins.
  • Most of all, the institutional power that comes with the infrastructure for trading firms and hedge funds. This will be possible because of Eterbase regulatory compliance. Eterbase can access such servers and the firms can have less latency IBAN.

From these it is clear that Eterbase is a project that just got started. The events lined up mean that this project’s sails are about to catch some major headwind. The future is digital and Eterbase represents a glimpse of this frontier.

Conclusion

In general, Eterbase aims to carve out a niche for itself as a fully-regulated European cryptocurrency exchange. Regulatory compliance is one of the biggest question marks surrounding cryptocurrency as a whole and this is Eterbase’s way of standing out. It goes without saying that the exchange offers enterprise-grade trading capabilities because of the tiered membership system that leans favorably on the side of token holders. The fact that the exchange can become an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) under EU law is big news since it can interact directly with European banking systems.
