The last few days of market turmoil have not spared our favorite token of Zilliqa (ZIL) either. ZIL has dropped fro considerably good levels of $0.137 seen last Thursday, to the recent lows of $0.0967 witnessed on Monday, June 11th. This was a drop of 30% in a period of less than a week. The token has somewhat recovered and is currently trading at $0.10 and up 0.70%.

It is with this background, that many traders and HODLers in the crypto-verse, did not notice an announcement from the Zilliqa team that the token was listed on two additional exchanges this month. The announcement that was made via the Zilliqa Telegram News channel stated the following:

“Dear All

1) We are happy to announce that Gopax has launched a global exchange which will be offering ZIL/ETH and ZIL/BTC trading pairs. For more details please visit www.gopax.com

2) ZILs will be available for trading on Kryptono Exchange starting Friday 8 June 2018. Deposits will be accepted from today 6 June 2018. Trading pairs offered include ZIL/ETH and ZIL/BTC. For more details please visit

https://kryptono.exchange/k/accounts/home

Cheers!”

This means that Zilliqa increases its liquidity by listing on the above two exchanges. Liquidity is defined as the degree to which an asset or security can be quickly bought or sold in the market without affecting the asset’s price. In simple words, the additional exchanges enhance the availability of ZIL to traders and Zilliqa HODLers.

Additional Zilliqa updates indicate that the team is preparing for the release of the second version of the TestNet that is scheduled for launch before the end of the second quarter of 2018. The team is also continually working on the Scilla programming language that is the core of the platform, on top of being developer friendly. The current TestNet has achieved 2,488 Transactions per second with 6 shards and 3,600 nodes proving that Zilliqa is indeed the probable Ethereum Killer.

in conclusion, the next few weeks and months will be an exciting time for the Zilliqa project as well as ZIL in the Crypto-markets.

The crypto community is still waiting for the US SEC to approve Bitcoin ETFs, with speculation which application might get approval being one of the hottest topics in 2018. However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.

While the question of BTC ETF remains hanging in the air, blockchain-focused ETFs seem to be a different matter entirely. In a recent announcement by an independent investment managed firm called Invesco, the company has stated that it was about to launch the largest blockchain-focused ETF in the world.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
