CoinGecko Releases Their 2018 Full Year Crypto Report: Market Dynamics, ICO Insights, dApps, Securities And More – Oracle Times

Please share this article:

CoinGecko is a crypto market ranking chart app that ranks digital currencies by developer activity, community, and liquidity.

They began 2019 by continuing their hard work to enhance the platform and add extended functionalities.

At the time being, CoinGecko proudly announces the whole crypto community that they just released the 2018 Full Year Crypto Report featuring various interesting pages with the most exciting crypto insights.

The team behind CoinGecko has worked with really significant names in the industry in order to be able to come out with this complex report. These names include Masternodes.Online, Dapp.com, TokenMarket and NonFungible.com.

2018 Full Year Crypto Report – Market Dynamics

CoinGecko addressed the not so fortunate year for the crypto industry, as 2018 was almost completely embraced by a lingering bearish trend.

“The market capitalization of the top-30 coins fell on average 78.85% in 2018,” they note in the official blog post.

It seems that as the crypto market fell throughout the year, investors moved towards Bitcoin, because BTC dominance went from 40% to more than 55% by the end of 2018, according to CoinGecko’s report.

ICO Insights

ICOs have been struggling to raise funds, as the crypto prices were reaching the all-time lows. “The percentage of ICOs meeting their hard cap decreased from around 53% at the start of the year to 10% by the end of the year,” according to CoinGecko.

dApps

2018 witnessed a massive growth in dApps, and COinGecko teamed up with Dapp.com to analyze and address the subject.

They describe EOS and Tron’s mainnets launch and more exciting details regarding the dApp competition. The preferred dApps are games and betting apps.

Securities

The section on Security Tokens was made in collab with TokenMarket.

There’s a lot of potential coming from securities because they have a strong chance of increasing global market liquidity.

Masternodes

CoinGecko worked with Masternodes.Online for this section. After a deep analysis of the largest masternodes, the conclusion was that the top 4 masternode coins are privacy-related ones.

“2018 also saw strong growth in masternode coins where it went from 57 to 536 coins, representing almost a 10x growth. However, the market capitalization of masternode coins was also similarly affected by the decline in 2018,” according to CoinGecko.

Non Fungible Tokens

NonFungible.com reports in this section that 2018 witnessed a huge growth in the non-fungible tokens as well.

There’s a lot of interesting and exciting data revealed in CoinGecko’s 2018 Full Year Crypto Report, and you can check out the complete information found in the sections above and others such as crypto theft, stablecoins and more.

Wise Network Publishes Whitepaper and Launches Telegram as ICO Approaches Stocks discussed: (OTCQB: $GOPH)

Wise Network , an innovative developer of analog-mixed-signal, system-on-a-chip (AMS-SoC) integrated circuits, has made significant moves with the close of 2018 and into this year as it gears up for an ICO presale for their WRC token set for April 19.

On December 17, 2018, Wise launched a Telegram account, which has 5243 members at press time. The account has seen consistent interaction from interested investors since its debut.

Additionally, Wise Network recently published their whitepaper , written by company CTO, and CTO of Gopher Protocol, Inc. ( OTCQB:GOPH ), Dr. Danny Rittman. Gopher’s Avant! AI engine powers the Enigma – a system-on-a-chip that communicates, using WiFi or cellular networks, with other Enigma integrated circuits (ICs) – which the WRC token is based within.

Wise Network was also listed on ICO Link , where they are currently rated 4.78/5. An excerpt from the ICO Link description for the WRC token outlines some of the basic features outlined in the whitepaper:

Wise’s SMC [secure memory chip] will lay the real-world foundation to support cryptographic acceleration, neural network processing, and System-on-Chip development in IoT devices whereas Wise’s Public Blockchain Mesh Network will serve as the distributed “hive mind” infrastructure that will give devices the capacity to securely learn, and transfer information between one another.

As an introduction to our Wise’s Public Blockchain Mesh Network (WPBMN), we present the underlying technology used for decentralization, discuss scalability issues, and identify the most promising solutions for overcoming these hurdles.

The WRC token itself allows users to transfer value in the same way they can communicate with other devices, as with IoT. WRC is used by devices, which can buy and sell things from each other. An introductory video illustrates this through the example of a car receiving traffic information from other cars around it. The data from this exchange is then charged using the WRC token, “solving the lack of information and revenue received for it”. This enables devices to collect and exchange data that the user desires without constant input from the user.

The Biggest Trend in the Stablecoin Industry in 2019? Solvency.

Please share this article:

It’s a new year, and the whole world is getting a fresh start: new gym memberships, new budgets, and new packs of nicotine gum are surging.

But your dieting aunt isn’t the only one who’s turned over a new leaf. The growing stablecoin industry appears to be reaching toward a new transparency standard, one that has been hallmarked by the regular publishing of audits by some of the more popular newer stablecoins.

Discover iFX EXPO, Your Gateway to Asian Markets!

The Stablecoin Industry is Changing for the Better–And Fast

Take, for example, USDC. USDC is the stablecoin created by the combined forces of payments company Circle and cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, two very reputable businesses within their respective industries. Since its launch in October of last year, the USDC has successfully published the monthly audits that it promised to its users–two so far, and counting.

Also on the up-and-up, TrustToken published the third audit of TrueUSD this December after being launched less than a year ago. Cryptocurrency firm Paxos and crypto exchange Gemini received regulatory approval for their stablecoins from the New York Department of Financial Services in September.

The increase of stablecoins eager to prove their solvency is having a positive effect on the industry. A year ago, there were only a few stablecoins in existence, some of them with rather shady and controversial reputations.

Now, there are dozens–and with heavyweight companies stepping further and further into the stablecoin game, competition is getting fierce: stablecoin companies can’t afford to cut corners anymore when it comes to being transparent and secure. This is perhaps most acutely felt by one stablecoin in particular: Tether, the largest and most widely-used stablecoin on the market.

But before we go there, let’s back up for a moment.

What Are Stablecoins? (A TL;DR)

Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies that are designed to maintain a steady value; they are digital assets that claim to act as stable, un-volatile stores of value.

There are a variety of methods through which various stablecoins achieve this. Some are ‘fiat-pegged’ coins that are allegedly backed by real-world assets, like fiat currency. Others are ‘crypto-pegged’, meaning that they are algorithmically tied to another cryptocurrency. Still other stablecoins use algorithms that automatically adjust their circulating supply so that a stable value is maintained.

Stablecoins that use algorithms are easily able to prove their solvency with mathematics. Much like the Bitcoin network and other decentralized cryptocurrency networks, they do not rely on any singular party to maintain or prove their value; the mathematics on which these stablecoins are based offer an easy source of proof of solvency in their source code.

Stablecoins that are pegged to fiat currencies, however, are a different story. Typically, users have to rely solely on a company’s good word that it has the fiat currency (or other asset) to back up its stablecoin’s value. Because stablecoins are such a new invention, there isn’t really any government regulation enforcing these companies’ responsibility to prove the solvency of their coins.

Proof-of-Solvency Has Long Been an Issue for Tether

In the past, this has proved to be a major source of concern for users as certain stablecoin companies have failed to produce adequate proof that they have the money that they say they do.

Take Tether, the most widely-used (and most controversial) stablecoin on the market.

For years, the company failed to produce a financial audit of its accounts, in spite of a promise on its website that regular audits would be conducted and published. There were several documents that resembled audits, sure, but users were unsatisfied and concerned about their assets.

And rightfully so. Early last year, reports began to emerge that Tether Dollars (USDT) were being “printed” without the fiat currency to back them up, and that these unbacked USDT were being used to artificially inflate the price of Bitcoin. Eventually, the rumours were affirmed in an academic study by researchers at the University of Texas, the results of which were published in the New York Times in June.

Still, the company did not produce an audit. The media surrounding the issue eventually quieted, but controversy was stirred once again in October when Tether suddenly began to lose its value. The value of a single Tether dollar, which is supposed to maintain a steady value of ~$1.00, sank as low as $0.90 on some exchanges. Analysts have since suggested that the dramatic decrease in the price of USDT was caused by a sort of “crypto bank-run.”

Although USDT managed to recover within a couple of weeks, the fluctuation was–for many–another red flag. Many users who weren’t previously disillusioned with Tether saw the dip as a strike against Tether’s alleged solvency.

Then, something almost miraculous happened. In mid-December, Bloomberg published a report saying that fears of insolvency “may be unfounded” according to bank statements reviewed by Bloomberg News itself. The report also said that “at least some of the statements have been shared with regulators,” and that “while the documents don’t provide a complete accounting of Tether’s finances, they do offer more detail than has ever been made public.”

But is this enough?

It Isn’t.

For Elizabeth White, CEO of financial technology firm the White Company, the answer is no. “When we are talking about money, it’s really not enough to just talk to a reporter to convince them,” she said in an email to Finance Magnates.

Instead, “the convincing has to be done directly to the public and holders of Tether. While Bloomberg is certainly a reputable publication, it is not a regulator or a user of Tether, and the crypto community deserves to have this alleged ‘proving information’ shared with them.”

Elizabeth White.

Why Hasn’t There Been an Audit?

So, even though Bloomberg has vouched for Tether, the question remains: why no audit?

White says that although the reason is unclear, “presumably it’s because all of the fund are at one bank and that bank is not a reputable institution (i.e similar to Noble Bank in Puerto Rico). If they reveal the identity of the bank, it could cause problems for [the bank.]”

Marc Weinstein, Principal of Wave Financial Group, theorized that the lack of transparency could have something to do with keeping insider knowledge on the inside.

“It’s possible that those closest to Tether have much to gain from the uncertainty and volatility in the market,” he explained to Finance Magnates. “If you knew with 100% certainty that there was US$1.00 backing every USDT issued & outstanding, and the market discounted USDT to $0.86 on the dollar, you’d have a guaranteed 16.3% return on investment as the market uncertainty cleared and USDT price returned to $1.00.”

Marc Weinstein.

Another possible reason could be the game of “catch-up” that some theorize that Tether has been playing with itself for the last several years: print a lot of unbacked dollars, and then mine (and sell) enough BTC to fill up the bank account with USD. If this theory is true, this could offer some explanation for why Bitfinex’s non-audits have been piece-meal that have come so few and far between.

“Selling into a down market is very difficult, which is probably why it took Tether a whole year to do it,” White commented.

Whatever the case, “the problem moving forward (and not only for Tether) would be the ability to prove their solvency at any given point in time, rather than just once annually,” said IN Consulting blockchain analytics expert Hristo Piyankov in an email to Finance Magnates.

Hristo Piyankov.

Looking Into the Long-Term Future

Indeed, this is the rub for Tether–with the increased competition, the company must find a way to regularly prove its own solvency at the same level of its competitors, like USDC and TrueUSD. Of course, Tether is still the most widely used stablecoin, and by a longshot. At the time of writing, Tether’s market cap was $1.9 billion; USDC’s rang in at $338 million, and TrueUSD’s was just $203 million.

However, there is no doubt that Tether’s competiton will gain more footing overtime. So, in this long-term sense–is Tether up to the challenge?

Maybe. If the company can manage to get its act together quickly and begin pumping out monthly (or even bi- or tri-monthly) audits, it will truly be a force to be reckoned with (although it still may have to answer for its years without an audit.)

“If Tether can win or survive depends on a few factors,” said Ricky Li, Cofounder of Altonomy, a crypto asset management firm based in New York City, to Finance Magnates. “1. Exchange adoption for more stablecoin denominated trading pairs; 2. Fast contribution and redemption process for price stability; and 3. Accounting transparency.”

Ricky Li

But there’s a lot of skepticism for the long-term future of Tether. “Tether, while having a massive market cap, is simply not used for anything other than trading, because other stablecoins…are much faster, safer and cheaper to use for payments use cases. And in the trading use case, no one wants to hold Tether over exchange coins like TrueUSD and USDC which have become much more popular,” White told Finance Magnates.

Weinstein echoed her sentiments. “Long term, I don’t believe Tether will be able to compete,” he said.

“That said, we’ve counted them out before and they are still the clear leader.”

Marriott updates on hack: 8.6m cards involved

Please share this article:

Marriott today is providing an update on the number of guests whose passport numbers and payment card numbers were involved in the Starwood reservations database security incident announced by the company on November 30, 2018.

Working closely with its internal and external forensics and analytics investigation team, Marriott determined that the total number of guest records involved in this incident is less than the initial disclosure. Also, the number of payment cards and passport numbers involved is a relatively small percentage of the overall total records involved.

“We want to provide our customers and partners with updates based on our ongoing work to address this incident as we try to understand as much as we possibly can about what happened,” said Arne Sorenson, Marriott’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we near the end of the cyber forensics and data analytics work, we will continue to work hard to address our customers’ concerns and meet the standard of excellence our customers deserve and expect from Marriott.”

Marriott is updating its press release of November 30, 2018, which announced that the company determined on November 19, 2018 that there was unauthorized access to a Starwood guest reservations database. In that release, the company said that it believed the incident involved information about up to approximately 500 million guests who made a reservation at a Starwood property* on or before September 10, 2018, although at that point the company had not completed the analytics work to identify duplicative information.

Update on the Number of Guests Involved

Marriott now believes that the number of potentially involved guests is lower than the 500 million the company had originally estimated. Marriott has identified approximately 383 million records as the upper limit for the total number of guest records that were involved in the incident. This does not, however, mean that information about 383 million unique guests was involved, as in many instances, there appear to be multiple records for the same guest. The company has concluded with a fair degree of certainty that information for fewer than 383 million unique guests was involved, although the company is not able to quantify that lower number because of the nature of the data in the database.

Passport Information Update

Marriott now believes that approximately 5.25 million unencrypted passport numbers were included in the information accessed by an unauthorized third party. The information accessed also includes approximately 20.3 million encrypted passport numbers. There is no evidence that the unauthorized third party accessed the master encryption key needed to decrypt the encrypted passport numbers.

Marriott is putting in place a mechanism to enable its designated call center representatives to refer guests to the appropriate resources to enable a look up of individual passport numbers to see if they were included in this set of unencrypted passport numbers. Marriott will update its designated website for this incident (https://info.starwoodhotels.com) when it has this capability in place. The website lists phone numbers to reach the company’s dedicated call center and includes information about the process to be followed if guests believe that they have experienced fraud as a result of their passport numbers being involved in this incident.

Payment Card Information Update

Marriott now believes that approximately 8.6 million encrypted payment cards were involved in the incident. Of that number, approximately 354,000 payment cards were unexpired as of September 2018. There is no evidence that the unauthorized third party accessed either of the components needed to decrypt the encrypted payment card numbers.

While the payment card field in the data involved was encrypted, Marriott is undertaking additional analysis to see if payment card data was inadvertently entered into other fields and was therefore not encrypted. Marriott believes that there may be a small number (fewer than 2,000) of 15-digit and 16-digit numbers in other fields in the data involved that might be unencrypted payment card numbers. The company is continuing to analyze these numbers to better understand if they are payment card numbers and, if they are payment card numbers, the process it will put in place to assist guests. Further updates will be made to the dedicated website: https://info.starwoodhotels.com.

Guests who have questions related to their payment cards should visit https://info.starwoodhotels.com for more information, including toll-free phone numbers to reach the company’s dedicated call center.

Starwood Reservations Database Discontinued

The company has completed the phase out of the operation of the Starwood reservations database, effective the end of 2018. With the completion of the reservation systems conversion undertaken as part of the company’s post-merger integration work, all reservations are now running through the Marriott system.

Guest Support

Marriott continues to offer the following services to help guests monitor and protect their information:

Dedicated Website and Call Center
Marriott has established a dedicated website (https://info.starwoodhotels.com) and call center to answer questions guests may have about this incident. The frequently asked questions on https://info.starwoodhotels.com have been updated and may be further supplemented from time to time. The call center is open seven days a week and is available in multiple languages.

Free Web Monitoring
Guests from countries and regions listed on the site have the opportunity to enroll in web monitoring services free of charge for one year. Please visit https://info.starwoodhotels.com and click on Free Identity Monitoring to learn more.
