The Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community got a major boost today when it was announced that two of Bitcoin.com Chief whips will be joining the Finetech startup known as MoneyToken, as advisers. The new members from Bitcoin.com are its CEO, Roger Keith Ver who is known by many as Bitcoin Jesus, and the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the site, Mate Tokay.

In the new startup known as Moneytoken, Bitcoin Cash will be used as collateral for users borrowing from the platform. The main idea behind the platform is to offer crypto-backed loans, a stable coin known as MTC and a decentralized exchange service. The project is still in its ICO phase with the buying of tokens available through Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC).

The amazing thing about the project is that you can still apply for a loan on the platform as the token sale is ongoing.

In the press release announcing the new partnership, the co-founder of Moneytoken, Jerome MacGillivray, had this to say:

“The Bitcoin Cash community is a unique and powerful force in cryptocurrency; adding our support to Bitcoin Cash and allowing our potential token buyers and future lenders and borrowers to operate in BCH, only adds to our portfolio and strengthens the value of MoneyToken as a product for all our users”

Roger Ver, also known as ‘Bitcoin Jesus’ for being an early investor in the coin, has been predicting that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) will flippen, or dethrone, both Ethereum and Bitcoin by the year 2020. This partnership shows his commitment to this prediction. He had this to say about the announcement through the press release:

“We are happy to be a part of this project since we can clearly see the strong team, disruptive and self-sustaining business model and, what is more important, the real value it can bring to the crypto community”

Current market analysis of BCH indicates that it is in the lower levels of $1,181 at the moment of writing this. The coin that is being predicted to overtaking BTC and ETH has had better times in the markets as was seen on the day BCH was added on Coinbase. The coin managed to reach levels of $4,000. This shows that BCH does have the potential of orchestrating the said flippening.

Over the nebulous first half of this year, some tiny cryptos were able to grow by more than 1000% and reach the desired top 100, while others that were already in the top 50 bastions simply zeroed. What factors led them to perform like this? Luck, external factors or well-made decisions?

First of all, it is important to clarify that it would be unwise to analyze them disregarding the market context (crypto and non-crypto) of the period, so we’re using a holistic approach.
In our timeframe, considering the traditional market cycle of emotions, in contrast to the standard chart below, the euphoria quadrant had a much larger peak and a much shorter duration, starting in the middle of 2017 and ending at the beginning of 2018, while we were stuck in the period of “excitement” since, maybe, 2015. The emotions in red passed in a rush and at the end of July, we were already in deep “despondency”.

Besides to the fact that the market completed half of the cycle in less than half a year, some very relevant things, besides the usual phenomena expected of an investment market, happened during this period. In addition to the hype the period enjoyed and the fact that bad, inexperienced investors were frantically joining the crypto market, we…

Tether

Tether is one of the top digital assets in the crypto-sphere. The coin was launched in November 2014 after it changed its name from Realcoin so that the crypto community doesn’t associate it to the altcoins. It is important to know that Tether is a currency that helps to convert fiat currencies into digital currencies.

Moving forward, there have been lots of FUDs around Tether these days as regards to whether it is going to be a truly stable coin as the market has seen dips lately. Also, the FUDs around Tether have raised questions on whether there are any backings to the digital asset.

It is crucial to know that other factors have been attributed, and one of them was a report from last month that stated that Tether and Bitfinex, had gone their separate ways with Noble Bank. The separation made Bitfinex suspend fiat wire deposits – without no reason or whatsoever.

Tether, in regards to market worth, comprises about 92 percent of the market capitalization of stable coins. Also, this stable coin offers two purposes: to stabilize the volatility of Bitcoin, and also to preserve the amount of money purchasing power investors have at hand when the value of larger cryptocurrencies such as BTC drops.

The coin is a good alternative for traders when trying to cash-in on fiat currencies, as we do know that trying to move money from different exchanges to fiat…

It has been almost an entire week since Justin Sun, the founder of TRON (TRX), announced a new big partnership for this cryptocurrency. His Twitter announcement did not provide a lot of information, except for the fact that the TRON partnership is with an industry giant worth tens of billions of dollars.

Even so, the entire crypto community started speculating about the new partner’s identity. Soon after the announcement, a new rumor emerged, claiming that the identity of an unnamed corporation was uncovered. According to the rumor, TRON’s new partner is none other than Baidu, one of the largest tech giants of China, which also represents this country’s largest internet search provider.

Baidu is often viewed as China’s version of Google, and if the rumors of a partnership with this company turn out to be true, this will be a big game-changer for TRON.

However, in days following the announcement, new reports started coming in with claims that the partnership will not revolve around blockchain technology. Instead, ODaily reported that the alleged partnership between TRON and Baidu will be focused on cloud computing. The report claims that TRON will be purchasing computing resources from Baidu.
