  • 08:32 Abkhazia Eyes Crypto Mining Regulations amid Fears of Winter Power Shortages

    A state-run energy company in Abkhazia is calling for the regulation of cryptocurrency mining activities to avoid the partially recognized republic being plunged into darkness this winter.
    According to Eurasianet, the cryptocurrency mining farms in Abkhazia, which are mostly located in abandoned Soviet factories, are guzzling a significant amount of electricity. As a result, it is feared that the shaky electrical network in the poor country which is located the eastern coast of the Black Sea may not be able to handle peak consumption in winter. "This (cryptocurrency mining) puts additional load on our grid, the transmission lines and substations that are loaded to capacity even without it. If temperatures fall, there is a risk that electricity will not reach regular customers," Aslan Basaria, the head of Chernomorenergo, a state-run energy firm, said.

  • 06:42 Coindesk's Analysis: BTC's Breakout Is Not Convincing

    According to Coindesk's analysis, BTC's daily chart shows a "sideways" breach of the falling wedge resistance, meaning the breakout is not convincing. As a result, a more credible evidence of a bullish reversal is needed, possibly in the form a high-volume break above $3,633. However, a drop to the psychological level of $3,000 remains on cards as long as BTC is trading below the crucial resistance at $3,633. A break above $3,633 would validate the falling wedge breakout seen in the daily chart and allow a rally to $4,000. A violation there would expose next resistance lined up at $4,410.

  • 05:51 Crypto Arbitrage on Dec. 17: XMR, ZEC, Dash, TRX, EOS and DOGE

    When it comes to exploring arbitrage opportunities after the weekend, a few interesting scenarios can play out. Either the price gaps become even more apparent, or the prices stabilize between different platforms. In the case of the following six trading opportunities, some good money can be made, although the price differences may not remain in place for much longer.
    1. Until further notice, it seems as if HitBTC has become the new EXMO or Livecoin in terms of relying on that platform for arbitrage opportunities. For those looking to explore some Monero-related options, prices on Bittrex and Kraken are lower compared to HitBTC. That allows for a potential profit of up to 3.4%, although the average is closer to 2.5%. A very interesting opportunity, assuming there is sufficient liquidity to take advantage of.
    2. It is not uncommon for ZCash arbitrage opportunities to look very similar to price differences for Monero. In today's edition, it has become more than apparent there is a price gap between Bittrex and HitBTC where ZEC is concerned. Moving funds between platforms can yield users a 1.76% profit in the process, which is a more than respectable profit on a Monday morning.
    3. There are a few interesting price gaps to exploit where TRX is concerned right now. Although all opportunities involve sending money to HitBTC for liquidation, one can source TRX from either Koineks, Binance, or KuCoin. As such, users exploring this opportunity can pocket a profit of up to 2.09%. A modest opportunity, although one that gives users something else to explore as well.
    4. A day with arbitrage opportunities for both Monero and ZCash usually offers very similar options where Dash is concerned. Today is no different in this regard, as one can buy Dash on Vebitcoin, Bittrex, or Kraken to sell it on HitBTC later on. When doing so, selling the funds can yield a profit of 1.9% on average, with the Kraken/HitBTC option offering up to 3.3% in profit.
    5. A few interesting Dogecoin price flipping opportunities present themselves when using either Koineks or Koinim as a base exchange. Doing so allows users to sell DOGE for profits on either Gate, Livecoin, or HitBTC. The average profit is close to just 1%, although the Koinim/HitBTC option rewards up to 3.7% in the process.
    6. Another day dawns upon the cryptocurrency and EOS is subject to arbitrage trading once again. This has become somewhat of an ongoing trend lately, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Buying EOS on Paribu, Binance, or KuCoin and selling it on HitBTC will yield an average profit of 1.8%. That is another respectable option to explore, primarily because EOS is a pretty liquid market first and foremost. That alone makes this opportunity worth exploring.

    Elaborating on what he meant, Casey noted that cryptocurrencies and related technologies are seen as a way to disintermediate ecosystems and to curb centralized entities. But now, the way that we value these blockchain-based assets is quite reminiscent of how traditional markets are run - a big no-no for diehard decentralists.

    He added that we're benchmarking crypto's performance of fiat, or more specifically, we're continually denoting BTC's value in dollar signs, rather than the iconic ₿[itcoin]. In other words, he said that much of the crypto market is focused on a successful exit into fiat, rather than maintaining skin in the game, so to speak. Casey added that this causes incentives to get misaligned, as investors look for profit, instead of ousting the often corrupt powers that be.

  • 21:41 LiquidEOS Introduces Transaction Frequency Index (TFI)

    Israeli EOS node Liquid EOS introduces the Transaction Frequency Index (TFI) as a measure of chain health. The TFI metric gives the average number of transactions sent by each active wallet per day. It is calculated by dividing daily transaction count by the number of active addresses. In order to smoothen the curve, a 7-day moving average of each metric is used.
    The number of active addresses on the Ethereum chain is down around 67% since bull market highs, reflecting the bearish sentiment in the Ethereum market. However, the TFI for Ethereum recently peaked at 2.5, indicating that those active users who are brave enough to weather out the crypto winter are becoming more active on the chain.
    EOS has a drastically larger TFI than Ethereum due to the various types of transactions which are possible on the EOS chain. After finding a local minimum at 63 at the end of November, the EOS TFI has soared above 250 during the first two weeks of December.

Generally, such investments may only comprise 20% of a VC fund's committed capital.
    That 20% basket also includes purchases of digital tokens. The NVCA wants digital tokens included within the 80%, arguing that it shouldn't matter if a fund invests in a startup through preferred equity or a digital token.
