Ethos (ETHOS) Is Running On A Smart And Well Executed Rebranding

Published

Ethos (ETHOS) gained just short of 50% on the USD over the last twenty-four hours and the coin now trades for a market capitalization in excess of $690 million. Twenty-four-hour volume peaked and hit fresh all-time highs at just shy of $34.5 million and price, right now, sits at $9.15, up close to 600% on the token’s mid-December pricing.

So what’s going on?

Let’s try and figure that out.

For anyone new to this coin, it’s worth starting off with a bit of background. Indeed, in some ways, this is a brand new coin while, in others, not so much. What do we mean by this? Well, Ethos is a new name, a rebranding of an older coin (and company) called Bitquence, which was previously denominated as BQX. As per this post by the company’s CEO Shingo Lavine back in November, Bitquence rebranded to Ethos for a couple of reasons but, primarily, because the company wanted to position itself as a mainstream player and the name Ethos more accurately reflects this positioning.

So that makes sense, but what’s the company and it’s token all about, rebranding aside?

Ethos bills itself as a universal wallet meets super-powered digital currency dashboard meets social network.

That sounds like a pretty wide spectrum of services but the company has actually done a pretty nice job of bringing everything together. Basically, it’s developed a multi-token wallet (so, a single wallet that you can keep a whole host of different cryptocoins in at the same time) and it’s linked this wallet to a cold storage facility and a liquidity network, which allows users to deposit, withdraw, send or exchange any of their crypto assets instantly with maximum liquidity.

There’s also a crowd-driven element to the wallet, which allows for community consensus features, ratings and reviews, social insights, all that sort of thing, with the goal being for this side of the platform to allow Ethos wallet holders to pick up investment info and to subsequently use the platforms instant-split diversification feature to spread risk (or chase reward) across a basket of cryptos – again all in the same wallet.

That’s the background, then, but what’s driving the recent rise in market capitalization?

This one’s all about exposure. A solid and steady stream of communication with both token holders (so, those with a vested interest in growth) and with the wider industry (so, those who might be looking to take a position in the future) is incredibly important right now in this space and this is something that Ethos, since its rebranding, has been great at.

The company regularly puts its team members in front of interviewers, holds q&a sessions and published in-depth development and operational advance reports across a host of different social outlets.

This has translated not just to a strong level of awareness regarding what Ethos is trying to achieve but also – and this is just as important, if not more so – a strong degree of confidence that the company can achieve its goals.

As such, when traders and investors are looking for potential allocations, and they are being presented with the choice between this coin and another, they are choosing Ethos.

So what’s next – can this run continue?

We think it can. The rebranding looks to have been incredibly successful and it has served as a platform from which the company can really start to leverage its strong points and move forward into what could be a great 2018.

Keep in mind that we might see a small correction on the current run (5-10% or so) as the shorter term operators pull profits off the table but – at the same time – any dip might be a nice opportunity to pick up some cheap coins ahead of an overarching return to the upside momentum.

We’ll be watching this one closely moving forward.

AAX Crypto Exchange Announces Massive Growth Numbers in August

Published

AAX Exchange

As the crypto market continues to surge, new traders continue to enter the market on a daily basis.  One of the first questions that new traders have is where should they trade crypto.  While there are countless options for buying and selling digital assets, traders need to exercise extreme caution and perform due diligence to avoid scam exchanges as well as places that have limited or no volume.  While the main platforms such as Coinbase, Binance, and Bittrex will always have significant volume, their fees are known to be on the expensive side.  AAX, a next-generation cryptocurrency exchange with the lowest futures fees in the world, represents a compelling alternative that traders should consider.

Growth Announcement

A few of the most important issues to consider when deciding whether to use an exchange are the number of users and the volume.  On August 7, AAX announced that in a little over two weeks, the exchange doubled its user base bringing the grand total of registered users to over 200,000.  At this rate, AAX may surpass the million mark later this year which would be an incredible achievement and is most certainly due to a variety of factors including extremely low fees and revolutionary technology.

Institutional-Grade Exchange

When AAX decided to build its platform, it set out to meet the demands of both institutional and retail investors.  In order to achieve that goal, the exchange operates at the highest possible…

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

The Pros And Cons Of Cryptocurrency

Published

cryptocurrency

Many facets of our lives are now digitized––money is no exception. 

Have you noticed that paper money is on its way to being obsolete because so many people receive direct deposit and love the simplicity of their debit card? 

Not to mention, cash carries germs, as we’ve heard lots about during the pandemic. Many businesses have turned to card only options in light of this. 

But what about cryptocurrency?

You probably heard everyone raving about it a few years ago, but the excitement’s calmed down quite a bit. That doesn’t mean that it’s not a viable option you should keep in mind. 

What’s Cryptocurrency? 

Let’s start with the basic definition of cryptocurrency so we’re all on the same page. Cryptocurrency utilizes cryptographic methods and complex coding systems to encrypt sensitive information during data transfers. This protects your funds and personal information on a whole different level. 

These transactions are virtually impenetrable due to the combination of mathematical and technological protocols created and put in place. This aspect of cryptocurrency is what makes it safer. Also, the details of transactions are kept private. No one can see who sent what, etc., because those rigorous mathematical and technological protocols protect it.

The Pros: 

Different From Traditional Banking Transactions

One thing people hate about traditional banks is the fact that they can…
