  • 02:25 Jur Founder: Smart Contract And Blockchain Helps Make Law Smarter

    Today, on August 22, Alessandro Palombo, founder of Jur, said in our program "CoinNess Online Investor Meetup (Phase 5)" that there is a large demand for legal services in the global market, and the annual legal market valuation is about $800 billion (for the US market only). However, current legal solutions are slow and inefficient, so the existing justice system must be improved in accordance with the actual demands, according to him.
    "We make the legal contracts more intelligent through smart contracts and blockchain technology. On the one hand, it is creating a "smart court" for the future, while on the other hand, individuals can manage their own contracts and disputes," he stressed.

  • 02:13 What Litecoin's Halving Might Suggest For Bitcoin

    Since Litecoin's halving, weekly median transaction fees are down 22%, roughly in-line with its market cap losses. Weekly transactions are also down roughly 5% since the halving. But not all metrics are down. Weekly adjusted transaction volume is up 21%, which means that more money is being transferred on the Litecoin network since the halving. And that's not all. Weekly active addresses are also up by about 35%, although most of that increase comes from a single spike in network activity around August 10.
    Overall, Litecoin's halving event is sending mixed signals. Both bulls and bears will find meaningful metrics to point to that support their arguments, but the reality is that Litecoin's 2019 halving isn't necessarily telling us much about what to expect for Bitcoin in 2020.
    If there is a lesson here, though, it's this: despite all the speculation during the months before the Litecoin halving, not much has actually changed about how people use Litecoin. The price drop is probably related more to broader crypto market forces than to anything halving-related. And the underlying fundamentals of the Litecoin network remain intact.
    With Bitcoin's halving in 2020, we can expect prices to follow broader market trends and other network metrics perhaps ticking up or down. But Litecoin's experience suggests that Bitcoin's halving may well bring a similar lack of drama.

  • 21:25 CoinNess.com Analysis: Clear Bearish Signal Comes To Bitcoin

    At present, Bitcoin (BTC) has fallen below the $10,000 threshold. Citing the Bitcoin analysis of Jins, the in-house crypto analyst at CoinNess.com, in regard to the recent performance of BTC, neither the reduction of trading volume nor the number of transactions with a large amount releases the signal that the main force participate in trading. At the same time, the number of BTC whale transfers is particularly small, which indicates that it is difficult for the small- and medium-sized investors to maintain the high-level trading enthusiasm in the current market. From this perspective, BTC may have a basis for further decline.
    Taken in the price pattern, BTC has apparently formed a shorts-dominated pattern in which two long green candles siege multiple short red candles, indicating that the bearish signal below the 60-day moving average is clear.
    Although the power brought by support level at $10,000 was strong before, the price has already broken below the threshold. In the short-term period, BTC needs to release a lot of selling pressure to regain its upswing.
    Judging from the performance of transactions, the number of transactions that involve in an amount of 10 BTC and above has not increased. The number of whale transactions marked 474 on August 21, setting a new low for half a year. Obviously, it is hard to make out the transactions initiated by the oversized main force, which shows that the current market is still dominated by small- and medium-sized investors.

  • 16:19 SEC Obtains Freeze Of $8 Million In VERI In Alleged Fraudulent Token Offering And Manipulation Scheme

    According to The Securities and Exchange Commission website, the organization filed charges against Reginald "Reggie" Middleton, a self-described "financial guru," and two entities he controls, Veritaseum, Inc. and Veritaseum, LLC (collectively Veritaseum). The Commission's complaint, filed in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, alleges that the Defendants marketed and sold securities called "VERI" tokens on the internet, inducing retail investors to invest based on multiple material misrepresentations and omissions. Among other things, Defendants allegedly knowingly misled investors about their prior business venture and the use of offering proceeds, touted oversized – but fictitious – investor demand for VERI, and claimed to have a product ready to generate revenue when no such product existed. The complaint further alleges that Middleton manipulated the price of the VERI tokens trading on an unregistered digital asset platform. The complaint also alleges that Middleton recently moved a significant amount of investor assets and then dissipated a portion of those assets, transferring them to Middleton's personal account.
    As of 17:25:59 UTC on August 21, $775 million worth of VERI (97,750,350 VERI tokens) have been moved from the address starting with 0xd74791 to the address starting with 0x8572a7. The transaction hash is fafcb5e65029914db2b3d1625d8cadfa746e80715728691a09d594af5fbf636e.
    According to the Whale Alert analysis, due to the low transaction volume of VERI, which current circulating amount merely reaches $17 million, the developers might have moved or unlocked the locked tokens.
