It’s been nearly two months since DeepBrain Chain was trading at its all-time high that hovered around the value of 0.60$ per one DBC unit. Since then, DeepBrain Chain has been experiencing great downfalls that eventually made it trade far from its highest price. While investors and holders are probably having a hard time over having their favorite currency dropping pretty far from 0.60$, it seems that the DBC dev team is even more bummed out about it. That is how, a bit more than two weeks ago, DeepBrain Chain announced buying off 40 million DBC units from already existing investors. Why DBC decided to make this move and what is next for DeepBrain Chain?
DeepBrain Chain is Buying Off 40 million DBC units
On March 16th, the team behind DeepBrain Chain has announced that they are planning on buying off DBC units from various investors from more than one exchange market. On the mentioned date, the team behind DBC, otherwise known as DeepBrain Chain Foundation has made an announcement regarding repurchasing of the circulating tokens by using their official Twitter account. In the tweet, the DBC Foundation stated that they believe that DBC has a great potential, both technologically and regarding the market value. However, as the team considers that their currency is undervalued, they have stated that they wish to buy off 40 million DBC units, which means that they will be buying 4.4% of DBC units currently being traded in the market.
This announcement followed up the first important statement that DBC Foundation has made before mentioning repurchasing, regarding the lockup period of 350 million DBC tokens that was previously scheduled for release at the end of January 2018. Now, we know that the lockup is extended to 6 months from the original release date, which means that the lockup period should end by the end of July of 2018.
Further, in their tweet, DBC Foundation added the address containing the repurchasing agreement they have enabled right after the initial announcement. By March 21st, DBC already managed to repurchase 6 million DBC units and the number keeps rising as they are planning on buying off 40 million DBC.
Why DBC thinks that repurchasing of the circulating tokens is important for further development of DeepBrain Chain?
The answer is actually pretty simple: the team thinks that their token is not valued in accordance with its true value and technological capabilities, so they want to repurchase the existing circulating DBC units.
This is not an odd case as this case scenario happened many times before outside the world of blockchain technology and decentralized platforms.
Apparently, in the world of investing, it is not an odd thing to have a company or an individual conducting the same process when buying off shares or similar fiat values that they themselves sold out to the public in the first place.
This case scenario usually happens when a certain company or foundation wants to raise the value of their own shares so they go on buying them off by themselves.
That is how DBC Foundation is buying off 40 million DBC units that were previously sold to public and private investors. That way they will be able to raise the value of DBC units that will rest in the hand of investors unlike the units being bought off by DBC Foundation.
Consequently, the price of the circulating DBC units left after the repurchasing of 40 million DBC is over will rise. That way, DeepBrain Chain might be able to acquire the value that DeepBrain Chain team thinks it’s appropriate to its real value.
Once the repurchasing their own tokens at a very low price and leaving them out of circulation, the foundation will, later on, be able to sell these at a higher price once the value of DBC goes up, which is most likely to happen after 4.4% of circulating coins is temporarily removed from the market.
Hopefully, due to DBC’s involvement with Artificial Intelligence and the bold move of buying of an exquisite amount of DBC units, the DeepBrain Chain Foundation should succeed in their venture.
How is DeepBrain Chain doing at the current Moment?
After the latest change in the market, DeepBrain Chain fell by -9.43% against the dollar, which means that DBC is now trading in the red. In addition to dropping against the dollar, this currency is also dropping in oppose to BTC and NEO by 2.58% and 0.28%.
At this moment, DBC units can be purchased at 0.036$ per one token, which is still far from its all-time high of around 0.60$. That is how the decision of repurchasing circulating tokens made by DBC team seems to be the right thing to do for DBC and all faithful investors.
It is predicted that the price of DeepBrain Chain will most certainly rise back up once all 40 million DBC tokens are repurchased by the Foundation and placed back into the market.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.

CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
