We have completely exited all of our bitcoin holdings and even some of the ALT follower coins, such as ETH, Litecoin and a few others that joined BTC in this last major up move from 4679 to 5800! We will look for a price decline back under 4700 now before attempting to buy again. Often on the FIAT side if a currency moves much beyond a resistance point like the 5,000-4679 area as Bitcoin has done, it will retreat with just as much and often more ferocity once the momentum peaks, kind of like a bullet shot up in their air hitting terminal velocity before it curves back down. Per our own rules we will wait till around the 1st week or so in Dec or so, as this is the likely statistical pulse move that my ALGOs compute for buyers to start again. As long as we are in this red block on a time basis that you can see in the above chart, selling should be the strong actuator in price behavior moving forward. Though again my ALGOs are being recalculated in time in this very new dynamic field of crypto currencies, as these new babies of price which do not have large institutional participation and histories on which to compute solid data models on, could make prediction a rough ride! In the mean time we will plug in the data and see how it turns out doing our best to profit with the ALGOs computations as they stand. Remember bitcoin even if the originator in this market is still fairly young and emotional wide price swings with a high degree of seemingly random action might be the norm for some time to come. We will work on trying to find the best and most profitable data in order to grow our capital in this new and exciting field. Hope and prayer are generally the mark of newbie traders, but in this case we might need it! LoL ūüôā

Two ICOs – two new exchanges: COBINHOOD and HALOPLATFORM.

The landscape of exchanges for crypto enthusiasts is a sad one. Security breaches (e.g. Litebit.eu), non existing support (bitfinex, bittrex, et al.), ugly interfaces, nerdy interfaces, premium fees to pay. Those exchanges give the impression that they only wish to milk the cow. They literally do not offer a state-of-the-art experience when it comes to their platforms (look at COSS and have a healthy belly laugh). But who is it that listens to the complaints and desires of the crypto community? We think we have found in our belief a few contenders set to dominate this space, each with an intrinsically different ecosystem, one vs the other: HALOPLATFORM and COBINHOOD to name two of them. They both are currently running ICOs and have something to offer for sure, but which one to invest in? With your participation in one of these ICOs, you give a vote of confidence as you invest in their technological vision, thus you are contributing to the very future of the Cryptosphere. One of them seems to plow a huge amount of their budget into what seems is marketing, towards which should have its caps filled quickly, the other one seems to invest into its platform succinctly to deliver a really strong, feature-rich product and prays for word-of-mouth. Who is who? In comparison you will learn this by the end of this article.¬† Let’s us take a deep breath and narrow it down as we look at them both. First things first, here are the opponents:

Introducing HALOPLATFORM

Welcome to the Ultimate Cryptocurrency Platform…
Halo Platform is the Most Comprehensive Cryptocurrency Platform Supported by Halo Coin and the Halo Network.
Powerful, enterprise level solutions fused with next generation trading tools and widgets make Halo Platform the #1 choice for a fully customizable trading hub with the flexibility to handle all your day-to-day trading and more. Our customizable UI allows you to change out which widgets you want to make it exactly what you need. Traders need a solid exchange where trading lag is a thing of the past. Track your positions, get SMS alerts, check annualized ROI from holding, track off-chain assets in your balance, and view your portfolio position in BTC and other base currencies like USD or AUD. Halo has it all and grows with the needs of the market.

HALOPLATFORM is so much more than a simple exchange – it is a whole cryptocurrency ecosystem and leaves no room for wishes. HALO will become the command center of every professional cryptocurrency trader / investor. Cryptos are still in it’s infancy, this is why so many companies with poorly designed products can succeed. HALO with it’s breathtaking offering has the goal to drive the cryptoverse to a whole new level, especially its analysis tools will help novice traders and investors alike to get their stuff organized in order and to keep an comprehensive detailed overview. There are many fields to be disrupted by HALO and the exchange seemingly is just one of them.

Supported coins / tokens: To many to list here, to be determined they are aiming for 100-150 of the top market coins plus whatever the community requests
Supported fiat currencies: USD/EUR/JPY/KRW/CNY/HKD/CAD/GBP/AUD/NTD/RMB/AUS
ICO: HALO ICO
Whitepaper: https://www.haloplatform.tech/assets/Halo-Whitepaper.pdf

Introducing Cobinhood

COBINHOOD is a cryptocurrency service platform for the blockchain era. The first
service launched by COBINHOOD is the world’s first zero fee high-frequency
cryptocurrency trading exchange that solves existing problems of cryptocurrency
traders. It provides spot trading and margin trading with ZERO trading fees to
maximize traders’ profit and market liquidity.

COBINHOOD is a ZERO trading fee cryptocurrency exchange with much buzz currently. The zero trading fee applies to spot trading and margin trading for up to 10x leverage. You can deposit in many fiat currencies, along with this it seems they took great care on the security end of their system, with an eye on being innovative. They aim for becoming a decentralized exchange in Q2 2018. Unfortunately COBINHOOD landed in trouble a few days after the ICO has started, as there has been special 150% bonus deals for Ian Balinas telegram group. Despite that the ICO seems to go pretty well, their marketing is excessive and seems to work.

Supported coins / tokens: BTC, BCC, ETH, USDT, ETC, IOTA, EOS, LTC, ZEC, XMR, XRP, COB, REP, OMG, DASH, NEO, GNT
Supported fiat currencies: USD/EUR/JPY/KRW/CNY/HKD/CAD/GBP/AUD/NTD
ICO: COBINHOOD ICO
Whitepaper: https://cobinhood.com/assets/whitepaper/whitepaper_en.pdf

HALOPLATFORM FEATURES:

The feature list is long, very innovative and contains tons of tools you want to have right now. In fact the exchange is just a fraction of what HALO has to offer and if you take your time to look into the array of features, you surely will be surprised. As we compare HALO Platform here with COBINHOOD, our emphasis is more on the exchange along with the connected items in turn, but here are a few of the awesome features of HALO:

  • A brand new approach of an EXCHANGE: Halo is all about organizing the decentralized. You can control your Private Keys inside Halo, so you never will lose track of all that cluttered stuff, spread over the web. It has a strong cloud architecture that takes care to avoid trading lags and scaling issues. Furthermore, HALO’s Decentralized Control Exchange (DCE) allows you to add and trade on only the exchanges of your choice, this allows tracking effortlessly across multiple exchanges. The HALO tokens you are purchasing with the ICO are heavily used on the entire platform and also use a Zero-Transaction-Fee Protocol within the platform, so if you send 1 Halo, it will be 1 Halo received.
  • A complete PORTFOLIO MANAGER, that visualizes the current state P/L of your wallets (which you can have as well on HALO, of course). Users can track gains
    and get notified instantly by SMS alerts. ROI can be calculated on monthly and yearly base, track off-chain assets, and view their portfolio position in BTC and other base currencies as well. Furthermore, HALO utilizes CRYPTOSWIM – a Cryptocurrency Calculator. This feature will help you with keeping your eyeballs on your “Dollar Cost Average” and takes care for not being hype-influenced.
  • Wallets, Wallets, Wallets
    HALOPlatform aims to be your one-stop-solution for your wallets as well. If you hodl, for example, BTC, ETH, XRP and DASH you don’t have to login into each of the wallets to check the status or do transactions, you have them all-in-one space. This is really helpful if you spread your portfolio widely over tons of coins and tokens – this way you can transfer the one you want to sell to the HALO Exchange with mouseclick and trade it if you wish to. This is another point in terms of mass-adoption, as the current state is hard to grasp for Average Joe.
  • Another important feature will be the Marketplace. Here you can offer all kind of Cryptoservice to the audience. Imagine consulting lessons, trading signals and whatever. Here is also a POS where you can use the HALOCOIN you can buy in the current ICO and here is the place where the project will gain its revenue.
  • The HALO Tokenhub will be an very simple but effectice¬†place for decentralized and consensus regulated ICO creation. This will bring up the whole ICO thing to a new level, making this form of crowdfunding available for the masses.
  • HALOPlatform seems to be unstoppable in terms of their vision, there are way more features to discover like the business tools and services, an inbound crypto community, financial tracking tools and a HALO debit card. The roadmap is unbelievable and if this job is done properly they will blow so many other small scale projects out of equation.
  • For the upcoming app, please have a look here:

Halo in our view will contribute in a massive way to grand scale adoption and confidence in crypto, which should be epic in scope. The currently sold token HALOCOIN is perfectly woven into the platform and has a real use. Starting with a very limited supply of 1,000,000 HALO with a value of $10 each and an actual use on the platform, we think this coin will gain in value very quickly. Especially if you consider the many ways to spend HALO on the platform. And, yes, HALOs will be minable, thusfore the supply in the beginning is small. Even the mining process has been designed very easily and can be run on an VPS. HALO has a masternode system and pays 50% of all their service fees generated back to the masternode holders.

COBINHOOD FEATURES:

COBINHOODs feature list is limited, as their vision is much more narrow. Whilst HALO wants to create the decentralized center of the Cryptoverse, COBINHOOD’s goal is to make an zero-fee trading exchange. You might ask why we compare those both, please read on – we will explain that in the last paragraph of this article. They want to run a smooth working exchange that offers spot trading and leveraged margin trading. Zero-trading fees is quite an argument, but it is not all – traders also want a good experience and they have been treated badly in the cryptospace (let’s remember Mt Gox). Still todays exchanges charge ridiculous fees, have a literally non-existing customer support and slow order processing. All of these shall be addressed by COBINHOOD. Let’s take a look at the platform of COBINHOOD and the features:

We hate to say it, but we can’t find anything special yet – it almost reminds a bit to Etherdelta with a more eye-friendly color scheme. We recognize the fancy flashed-out design of the ICO and the more generic style of the exchange. But back to the COBINHOOD features:

  • No transaction fees – Traders will enjoy ZERO trading fees for spot trading and margin trading for up to 10x leverage.
  • Secure environment – COBINHOOD will store¬†the vast majority of the crypto asset deposits in an offline multisig vault, which requires 5 out of 8 geo-distributed hardware security modules to open, which is very state-of-the-art.
  • Real-Time-Trading-Experience with a highly performant order-matching system.
  • Many supported Fiat currencies for depositing on the exchange.
  • Multilingual Platform supporting¬†10 major languages, covering 98% of the world‚Äôs population.
  • An existing – hopefully – top-notch customer support, as per defined goal in the whitepaper.
  • ¬†ICO Spark ProgramTM¬†to help well-known enterprises, successful startup companies, or reputable entrepreneurs integrate their products and services with blockchain technology.

The rest of the features are really more about the ICO and not the platform itself, like some privileges for token holders and ICO underwriting service and the nice feature that the usual liquidity issues with ICO tokens are solved as the tokens become tradable right away after the exchange launch.

Comparing HALO vs COBINHOOD

So why did we choose to compare apples with bananas? We wanted to demonstrate a live example on how much the ICO market is driven by marketing and how it can derail the general development of the Cryptospace and mass-adoption. One project might be good marketed pre-ico, but the other one in comparison is something with a real community value. Let’s do a check side by side:

  • COBINHOOD spent tons of money to create a full blown team with so many advisors and what else ~ HALO is the geeky underdog staying in the background, focused on development.
  • COBINHOOD‘s ICO website¬†has a great feature-packed webdesign is highly optimized for conversions ~¬† HALO’s current info website is looking good, though we are sure it has cost a fraction of what COBINHOOD has paid for theirs.
  • COBINHOOD leaves no stone unturned in their marketing program and use every method possible to squeeze investments ~ For HALO you will see rarely ads, but you will find tons of real traders and cryptoenthusiasts spreading the word in the groups and channels.
  • COBINHOODs vision is very limited and has just a few innovative features, but if you read the website closely, you will find it is focused on providing extra value to token holders, instead of coming up with a real great product ~ HALO outranks COBINHOOD by far in terms of features – it is fully focused on the product, they just don’t care for fancy marketing campaigns to squeeze the last $ out of the prospects. HALO cares for the product and to contribute hugely to mass-adoption of crypto in general.
  • Compare the webdesign of COBINHOOD¬† with the design and features of the exchange and you will see where the money has been spent. Vice Versa for HALO, where the website won’t amaze very much but the limitless features of the product itself will leave you open-mouthed in amazement.

The Verdict

In a nutshell this comparison is like David against Goliath. COBINHOOD might be Goliath for their marketing and in acquiring large sums very fast but HALO is smart and might be the real winner in the long run, as the product is not just a simple exchange, it is the next logical step on a technical level to elevate the success of crypto itself.

Whilst many ICO investors become quickly impressed with flashy videos and nice web designs, they tend to forget to actually watch out for the real value of outstanding products. Many of these companies should use their capital more on the actual product instead of a blatant marketing. In COBINHOOD we stand back and see ourselves invests into yet another ICO, HALO on the other hand seems like it is going to be a major game changer in the long run, once people realize what it actually can do. Other fee-free exchanges might be in the pipeline already, waiting to start and to learn from COBINHOOD’s mistakes. With that fast pace of development, it will be easily replicable. We are sure you won’t find scandals for HALO like COBINHOOD’s special bonus for the Ian Balina group, as HALO is about the product, while COBINHOOD seems to be all about the raising of funds, which is a bit concering to us. Also to consider: COBs are already trading on Etherdelta, so you can make a bargain there, as sometimes it is below 60% of the current ICO price.
The eco-system of HALO could become a true crypto central to the community. Try to think of what they should add to their platform, what is missing? Hard to find something, right?¬† The roadmap of HALO is amazing, as it considers crypto from a 360¬į angle – and this is why we believe in HALO. We are sure that HALO is the true gamechanger, with a coin to hold and an amazing platform to use for all your daily crypto needs. This angel in the crypto space surely deserves it’s HALO ūüėČ

Crypto Week in (P)review; Bitcoin lead the market this week blowing past 5k before holding its advance floating just under 6k, ahead of the upcoming SegWit2x hard fork the buyers ruled the week.  On the flip side there was a mishmosh of ALT coin activity, with some doing better then others, we saw Etherium get a late start but did play catchup to BtC, a bit late though and at first was to the downside. The star performer of the week was Litecoin, who advanced handsomely alongside the Bitcoin charge forward. On the downside we saw other ALTs falter, with Lisk РIOTA -BQX РBAT all held back from the likely money flow to the upcoming Bitcoin Fork. Other note worthy events of the week were as follows ~

‚ÄĘ Russian President Vladimir Putin is heard to say that Russia will issue its own ‚ÄėCryptoRuble‚Äô at a closed door meeting held in Moscow, stated from local news sources.¬†https://cointelegraph.com/news/breaking-russia-issuing-cryptoruble

‚ÄĘ PNC Bank, threatens client with account closure for buying Bitcoin! Customer response was said to be “What di_ks!”

‚Äʬ†Julian Assange sarcastically says “Thank You! U.S. Government for 50,000% Gains on Wikileaks’ Bitcon stash they forced him to invest in back around 2010.

‚ÄĘ Bitlem Opens the first Bitcoin Exchange in Mexico, going brick and mortar just blocks away from the Mexican Stock¬†Exchange.

Please read more in our disclaimer here

Know first and foremost that the very site you are on at this moment was built in part due to the spectre.ai vision, purely from the love and betterment of trading for all. In the future we plan many posts on the site of spectre.ai and that of “smart options”, imo this group and the asset class will rule the industry for years to come (if you need an introduction was SPECTRE is, read here). There were more popular ICOs we looked at, though none can compare in depth or breadth, on an intrinsic scope to the SPECTRE offering. Below are some of the fundamental reasons why spectre.ai gets our vote as the “ICO of the YEAR!”

1) Solves a real problem – This is the single most important reason to which spectre.ai gets our vote, because it wants to remove the inherent conflict of interest that dominates the retail trading space. This amazing vision that uses blockchain technology to eliminate the brokers from the equation, thus helping cripple the fraud and manipulation that so many have suffered from in the trading world. With Spectre you don’t deposit any funds with them, you trade on a per transaction basis instead. With a centralized model you would first have to deposit money into your account with a broker, then hope they pay you from those funds your winnings, often with them wanting to keep your funds came the conflict of interest that has lead to wide scale fraud in the industry, with SPECTRE this is eliminated once and for all, as with the decentralized model you never deposit funds, thus having control over your money at all times.

2) Trust of Management – If you can’t trust the people behind the company there is no point to investing in what they offer. The SPECTRE team is made up of people from the fintech space that have long histories and accomplishments in their individual disciplines. The main benefit of this, well simply put is they honor their words. They are professionals in our opinion that you can trust to grow the company into a well respected industry leader of this future space.

3) Originator status – Let us be very clear, SPECTRE is the originator of “SMART OPTIONS” they created the idea when they tied it to a decentralized Ethereum tokenized digital liquidity pool. Originator status is very important, as they deserve the credit for ushering in a new age for trading.

4) VISION – This is imo the essence of what embodies SPECTRE, their unrelenting vision of the future. This impresses me most about the future of this company and their future offerings. I think these visionaries will help create not only a transparent fair battleground for all traders, but as well lead in the way of improving the overall trading experience for each and every one of us.

5) Moral edict – You might find this an odd one to include, though in reality this is what gives many the confidence in them. These are people who care and are passionate about trading. They care enough to wish to see responsible behavior, and the fair treatment of traders. Built into the core of SPECTRE’S trading platform, are the trading education and risk management algorithms to protect traders. Often you can hear them repeat over and over in their videos, the stories of mistreatment traders have suffered by fraudulent entities, warning us repeatedly to not become victims of these nefarious characters. If you wanted people who were good guys, that sought for your personal betterment, outside of the clergy or maybe medical staff, I can think of no one better then the team behind SPECTRE‚Ķ

As we walk forward into the long journey ahead, be confident in their future as I am! It is my belief the vision here will long out live any of us. That is the truly amazing thing about the blockchain/crypto movement, the passion that radiates for the common man to create a better future for us all. SPECTRE is the perfect embodiment of this, what more could we ask for then the opportunity to be a part of this better future, what more could we ask for then SPECTRE!

Yes, Crypto is growing  Рbut compared to the traditional market it is yet not very significant size-wise. The Crypto market has just passed its early days, and to gain more and more in size and volume, there has to come a general investors mindshift Рcapital has to be moved from the traditional market into Crypto, which is not easy to achieve, as we need the investors to think in a new way. Think maybe of your dad, he is maybe invested in a S&P 500 ETF, edging with an average 3 to 5 percent. You tell him about Cryptos and he likes the idea. Once wifey headed to sleep, he sits down to his computer, and wants to invest in Crypto. What does he face when he starts his Google research? Wallets, an endless stream of coins with funny names, some strange things like wallets for each each of the coins in, Moon, Hodl, FOMO, FUD and other terms that he might never heard before in his entire life. If he has a question he shall install Telegram or join a slack Channel Рwhat the heck? Crypto is way to nerdy yet and not made for the elder generation, a generation that sits often on a fat stack of money.
HEDGE ICO could be a bridge into the world Crypto for this people.
Your dad is stressed out, he wants to profit from this obscenely high gains but he has a garden to take care of and a cat to feed. So he googles for another solution and finds  HEDGE. He finds out that HEDGE offers:
  • a stable index of 90% of the market
  • an index that follows a similar rulebook like to S&P500
  • an automatically reconstituted and rebalanced portfolio
  • the option that their Crypto Traded Index (CTI) will eventually hit the traditional markets as ETF
  • the possibility to add particular coins and tokens to his portfolio if he reads an article about for NEO in the Financial Times and gets fancy about it.
¬†That’s the story behind HEDGE, basically a VANGUARD for Crypto. Their whitepaper states as following:
Hedge Project is developing the ideal crypto platform that will enable its users Crypto Traded Indices‚ĄĘ and derivatives trading. Now you can easily get exposure to the crypto markets with professionally designed crypto indices that use official rule-books. Manage your risks with derivatives and hedge your exposure to the volatile crypto markets. Hedge Platform will offer users to trade indices, the basket of cryptocurrencies or single derivatives. Buy (or short) the market with a single click.
So let’s take a look into their ICO and Token Concept:

THE HEDGE ICO and the HDG token

The Hedge ICO is already running and there are only a 2 days left, by the time of writing this.  Here are the hard facts:

  • Role of token:¬†Platform fees, buyback
  • Token supply:¬†50,000,000
  • Distributed in the crowdsale:¬†30,000,000
  • Symbol:¬†HDG
  • Initial value:¬†1 HDG = 0.002 ETH
  • Sale period:¬†15.9.2017 ‚Äď 15.10.2017
  • Token distribution date:¬†16.10.2017
  • Accepted currencies:¬†ETH
  • Soft Cap: $1,5M
  • Maximum cap:¬†$15M
  • Unsold tokens policy:¬†Burned

What are the tokens used for?

The HDG token is a utility token that is used to access the platform eco-system and by definition is not a security – its sole purpose is a membership and transacting token. Basically you can say you are paying your HEDGE and TX fees with this token.¬†Fees generated on the Hedge Platform through buy/selll/transactions are used to buy-back, HDG tokens in circulation – these will be burnt via smart contact . This is scarcity economics to decrease the general supply of the token, which likely will create long term growth for token holders, which should come on top in addition to their positions and profits. You will get the return that accrues from underlying BC30 (return ) and scarcity economics determines HDG long term appreciation . Tx fees from platform are used to buy-back HDG on open markets, these are burned via smart-contract ( auditable) Your fund money to purchase tou buy into BC30 (the name of their first index / CTI) won’t come from the tokens, but from fiat or crypto, most likely ETH.

 

The HEDGE Project

With an inception date on September  24th, they set a tight timeline to start with their first index BC30.  As news follows their indices will be streamed through Reuters and Morningstar beginning in the next few days, which is definitely huge and will bring more eyeballs on the opportunities of crypto in general. The whitepaper of hedge is one of the clearest and best whitepapers we have ever seen, though it could be more detailed in terms of their token economics.

Buchman Crypto 30 Index represents more than 90.0% of total market capitalization. BC30 follows the developments of the wider cryptomarket, tracking the prices of 30 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization.

The first of their monthly recomposed index funds is following a strict ruleset (just like the S&P 500), which is a good thing.  The rulebook can be found here and looks familar. Despite the fact the idea of a crypto index fund is not new, it is the first one and single one, as far as we know, that follows a  transparent rulebook and especially having a Buchman advised fund. As long as the bubble is up, this looks like a stable way to profit from the cryptocurrency craze. The tech behind this composition of this index is well thought-through, as it actively considers the prices across several exchanges, their volume, local distortions and other associated effects. The simulated return on the index value on their website looks pretty teasing.  Furthermore they will launch a Bitcoin Price Index (BTCCX) also scheduled for mid of September:

Bitcoin is being traded on various exchanges, and the price can differ significantly. Bitcoin Price Index will be the first commercial implementation of a single reference price of several Bitcoin exchanges.
To be launched within next weeks, Bitcoin Price Index measures the movement of bitcoin prices. With a transparent rulebook, our objective is that the index will become the main reference point for traders, institutions and the wider public.

Teh roadmap of the project is huge and promising, so we might see  a Crypto Asset Index, Crypto Income Index, niche specific Crypto Indices, and country specific Crypto Indices, so there is much room for upscaling.

The HEDGE Platform

Making Indices easy to understand and work with for everyone is quite a goal, facing the fact it’s success is depending on the further mass adoption of cryptos. As we can’t access any beta yet, we have only screenshots to rely on, but these look like the promised one-click-investment solution. The single concern we see, is actually the needed token to start through on their platform. As they want to build a bridge for non-crypto-savvy people, it seems ironic that they need to purchase tokens to be able to use the platform. However, this might be just an UX thing and depends on the workflow they implement on the platform that we are not able to see yet.

The platform features basically three areas:

  • Crypto Indices
    This is where you manage your crypto indices: Bitcoin Price Index, Buchman Crypto 30 Index, and Crypto Assets Index are in the offering here.
  • Index Instruments
    Traders will be able to trade the CTIs here. In the future, they will launch derivative instruments, margin accounts and ability to take short positions.
  • Crypto Instruments Platform
    HEDGE wants to become the ‚Äúgo-to‚ÄĚ market place for investors interested in crypto markets. Platform will offer access to professionally designed indices on crypto assets and currencies, traded baskets of crypto currencies and other relevant crypto market information, such as market research, valuation reports, etc.

What do we think about HEDGE?

The whitepaper, the team, the roadmap, the platform (as far as one can say by this time), the concept of the indices looks very promising. The fact alone to get streamed on Reuters and Morningstar says much about the potential of their product. However, their goal is bringing crypto with ease to the masses and despite the fact they had quite some nice media exposure,¬†they barely reached their soft cap until now with 2 more days to go. Great news like the Reuters thing have been found just by visiting their Telegram channel, nowhere to be found on their facebook or twitter – and in regards of the soon ending ICO such news are critical to be blasted out in time. Furhtermore there have been changes like haviing Buchman as Advisor, but the changes don’t reflect in the Whitepaper (like the new name BC30 of the Index due to the partnership). If they want to get mainstream and the novice people, a straight communication means very much. As the team is closley connected with RIALTO, which did a great job during their ICO, they should have gotten be aware of this issue. In the TG channel people ask quite often what HEDGE is actually about, sure – these are people that are maybe new to the whole thing, but isn’t this the target group they want to reach? We can see that it is hard to have a website that appears with the needed seriosity AND explain things dead simple, though it is yet a gap to be closed for the project to become successful. The roadmap is impressive and they have much work on their table. Let’s see how much they can achieve how fast, with the rised funds stay at the lower bottom. Despite the marketing issues, they do a darn good job with their product and they know what they are doing, that for sure. We will go in limited, as we can see the vision, the need for their product and a well versed team behind this ICO which are surely PROs in their niche. Communication and PR has to be improved furtherly to keep the pace and ensure the success of this project.

There is much talk right now about   ( ) (acronym for Crypto-One-Stop-Solution) and which seems to do pretty fine post ICO in terms of trading volume (for their current state). But let’s take a view at the project first:

COSS stands for Crypto-One-Stop-Solution and represents a platform which encompasses all features of a digital economical system based on cryptocurrency. The COSS system consists of website payments, seller tools, a marketplace, financial module, e-wallets, coin facilities and a mobile platform. The platform unifies the most popular crypto and fiat currency services, e.g. exchanges, payrolls, wallets, acquisitions and transactions.

COSS decided to go a forked route and offers three services at once:

  • A multi-crypto-wallet, where you can store all your cryptocurrency funds in a single location safely.
  • An exchange for multiple crypto ( currently BTC/ETH/VRS) and fiat (USD/EUR/SGD) currencies
  • A payment gateway with merchant platform with marketplace, payment modules and other seller tools


If this whole ecosystem they are about to build is not ambitious for an ICO, we don’t know what this word means. The revenue source of the COSS project are obviously fees from the exchange and the payment processing fees for their gateway. Payment provider are in a quite profitable niche, therefore it is almost saturated and the competition is hard.¬† But let’s tackle each of the points seperately:

The COSS wallet

The website claims it to be an one-for-all wallet, which can store all our crypto funds in a safe environment. We have been only able to find the exchange wallet whilst our research and this is far away from “all coins”. Generally, we think it is no good idea to store coins or tokens directly in an exchange – so the question is, if there is an external wallet to be released? As this is just the usual “exchange wallet” like on hitbtc, bittrex, you name them.

The COSS Exchange

The exchange is already live in beta and can be visited here.¬† The design and UX is not too appealing at all, and they should invest a bit to improve it. The taste of Etherdelta is on the tongue. Whilst we accept it for ED as it is decentralized as a main advantage, we don’t like it for a centralized fee-based exchange. There are some advantages the COSS exchange offers though:¬† the very high amount of very niche altcoins, which are likely rare to find on other exchanges and the fast transaction processing.¬† Furthermore, from an investors point of view, the really interesting features kick in as follows:

  • All COSS traders start with a trading fee of 0.2% as default and with increasing trading volume, this can go down to 0.04%.
  • A very generous amount 50% of their Exchange revenue is issued to the token holders of COSS and make you participating with the growing success.

While it seems to be teasing to hold a dividend paying token, go and register yourself¬†¬†to get an own picture for the quality of the product. Our own verdict was that we didn’t like the interface very much, nor found it comfortabale to trade there (by the way: inactivity logouts are not a nice feature). Interesting:¬†COSS offers direct transfers of your fund between the wallets, the exchange and the merchant platform all in one backend. So if you are trading retailer that takes cryptos for payment, your life might get a bit more convenient.

The COSS Payment Gateway

As one of the SmartOptions.Io Team is into e-commerce, we can say that the niche of payment providers is paying off for the ones that are able to edge over the competition. The approach of bringing Cryptos to mainstream PoS is not new, and others, like¬†  ( ) are doing pretty well in other markets with the establishment of this goal.

Once integrated with their seller tools, the customers can pay with  BTC, ETH, LTC, DASH, NEM, LSK, ARK and their in-platform token VRS.

Screenshot of their Payment Plugin
Screenshot of their Payment Process

The gateway is used currently by 100+ stores, which is yet very low and must increase significantly over the next years.

With an Point of Sale, you can start taking crypto payments with your mobile via Android & Web App. The payment gateway can be an interesting feature in the future, however currently the market has not yet accepted Cryptos on a level that is significant. In terms of revenue generation it is interesting that they take¬†a 0.75% transaction fee¬†with the COSS merchant platform, and even more interesting for the token holders is that they again get 50% of this revenue paid as dividend. As being said, we don’t believe that is pretty much at the moment, but could if this topic starts to take of. To be fair, they are properly working on it and are about to

  • develop of new features for their platforms
  • create strategic fintech / blockchain partnerships
  • acquire high potential startups and projects

Invest or not to invest in COSS?

The ICO was hard capped with¬†216,667 ETH, though they reached only a fraction of their goal (8,245.45 ETH). However their fanbase is huge and people seem to love trading it as the volume shows. If your purchased at the ICO you would likely get it cheaper at the moment.¬† However, it is a token with a working product, a team behind that cares for it, and (a yet small) userbase for its ecosystem. The project itself seems a bit fuzzy on their website and we think they might have overloaded themselves with the amount of work that is coming up by building so many products all at once. There is major (ground) work to do and this won’t be easy. Establishing a coin exchange within the sea of the already existing requires heavy marketing efforts and a constant development in terms of features – the same goes for their venture as crypto payment provider, though this seems to be the most advanced card on their hand right now.

Right now there is much room to grow upwards for COSS and, despite the concerning factors, it has definitely some hype and a large fanbase across the community. We can see two opportunities in investing in COSS:

  1. Get on the board fast for short term, monitor the growth of it and profit from the hype.
  2. If you believe in the vision of COSS and see its business model succeed, stay in for long term, with a horizon of a 1-2 years.

We can see that the value of COSS token might increase over the next weeks, but due to the quality of the product and the hefty work involved to get all these balls rolling it will be risky for the long term. On the other hand, the rewards with the dividend payments are attractive to hodlers and can pay off nicely once the project took off (which we doubt).¬† Short term investors could enjoy the ride of the current hype, but should not become too greedy. We will go with a pending order at 0.000360 ETH with a small amount, sell once we have 50% profits taken. We refrain from a long term investment due to rumors that one of the team members has been involved in pyramid schemes (not verified), as well as the products we don’t believe in.

With the upcoming Bitcoin Fork to Bitcoin Gold (BTG) many small time investors, as well as whales,  pull their money out of the alt coin market and switch the funds to Bitcoin, as you should receive a calculated equivalent amount of BTG to your  BTC holdings, if they are stored in a wallet (and not in an exchange). Please use this info with caution, as there are many rumors about a possible scam going on currently.  As much as the current blood bath might depress you, by looking at your portfolio, there lies a big chance within. We assume that the BTC holdings will swap back to the alt market, once the fork has been done, which is on 25th of October. This results in a big investment opportunity for us, as we are able to buy tokens of promising coins pretty cheap. We are presenting here our pending orders for a selection of six coins. Please note that we mention the entry points in USD, as we come from the FX world and find it much more comfortable than to calculate in sats. Take it or leave it. So, here is our selection of the top five projects we want to get in or increase our positions:

6.  LISK (LSK)

Project: With its groundbreaking tech, based on the widely spoken languages of Javascript and NodeJS this project is very accessible for projects based on LISK.  In comparison to Ethereum it is a breeze to work with Lusk. Ethereum is based on Solidity, a very niche language that is not easy to adopt and to get it security tested by for example Vericode. Totally different with LISK.

Lisk is a Blockchain application platform, established early 2016. Based on its own Blockchain network and token LSK, Lisk enables developers to build applications and deploy their own side-chain linked to the Lisk network, including a custom token. Thanks to the scalability and flexibility of side-chains, developers can implement and customize their Blockchain applications entirely.

Technical Analysis: The BlockChain App maker has a chart again very parabolic with spikes both up and down as the norm, also very much akin to our favorite play “Litecoin” This is a fav of the developer community, being as such the chart is a bit more risky, but if this takes off you could see very large gains in no time at all.

Live Price:¬†  ( )

Our entry point: $4.72 or lower

Official Website: lisk.io
Exchange: Changelly


5. Bitquence (BQX)

Project: We absolutely love the vision of Bitquence, which has been featured with an FORBES article. A universal wallet is the smallest of their goals. Goals like one-click-diversification will create ETF-like portfolios and the token itself has an actual use: The conversion between different cryptos. We invest in this “stock index for cryptos”, because thy seem to manage to get this done in a very user-friendly way:

Technical Analysis: Has been in a long term consolidation which it should come out of by year end. We have great expectations of the BITquence project and see great things in the future of this multi currency wallet play!

Live Price:¬†¬†  ( )

Our entry point: $0.48 or lower

Official Website: Bitquence.com
Exchange: HitBTC.com


4. IOTA (MIOTA):

Project: IOTA shall be the currency of the IoT (Internet of Things) one day and is meant to be a currency for payments between machines. As we are currently right at the beginning of a new industrial revolution, we suspect a great future for this coin. Acting as backbone of the IoT, the technology behind is very unique and lightweight and has a highly anticipated use. Machines can do their transactions with MIOTA without any transaction fees.

Technical Analysis: IOTA another of the bearish channel surfers of the past year, was showing signs of a breakout before the current downturn, still again with the very bright future of a company that wants to get “THINGS” done, we simply love this play and will continue to wait for an explosive breakout towards the feb/march time table.

Live Price:¬†   ( )

Our entry point: $0.46 or lower

Official Website: Iota.org
Exchange: Bitfinex.com


3. Basic Attention Token (BAT):

Project: A very strong dev team on this one is almost a guarantee for a huge success in the long term ( the creator of JavaScript and the co-founder of Mozilla and Firefox are part of the team). Everyone that is into advertizing online faces high middleman fees & click fraud. BAT is establishing the new browser BRAVE, that knows where users spend their time, making it the perfect tool to calculate and reward publishers with BATs.

This service creates a transparent and efficient Blockchain-based digital advertising market. Publishers receive more revenue because middlemen and fraud are reduced. Users, who opt in, receive fewer but better targeted ads that are less prone to malware. And advertisers get better data on their spending.

Technical Analysis: this has been a seesaw ride of late in a ping pong range that mostly ends sideways until recently hitting a stronger downturn. Technically could have a bit lower to go but @ 0.18 and under, we feel confident in end of year/early year appreciation to rise with the others, even to outperform them as well.

Live Price:¬†   ( )

Our entry point: $0.18 or lower

Official Website: basicattentiontoken.org
Exchange: Changelly


2. TenX (PAY)

Project:¬† TenX enables you to load up your cryptos to a credit card and let’s you spend your tokens on the spot, directly in the store. Their app is already in the app stores and can be downloaded (TenX ‚Äď Blockchain Asset Wallet: Android / iOS ). You can fund the card with BTC, ETH and its ERC 20 Tokens as well as DASH – making you spending your cryptos everywhere, where cards are accepted. The card is already orderable in the EU from within the app.

Technical Analysis: Price movement very much like the above BAT, though a bit elongated/smooth on a time basis. Bat has a great future being the “Real Estate” blockchain play, we think it as very undervalued and on a move up could set records on any upward climb that starts.

Live Price:¬†  ( )

Our entry point: $2.00 or lower

Offical Website: TenX.tech
Exchange: Changelly


1. LiteCoin (LTC)

Project: Litecoin, where are your right now? This one has insane opportunities right now. Satoshi lite is the lean sister of its fat brother Bitcoin, using almost the same tech in the background, but focused on fast transaction (4x times faster than BTC, due to much lighter code), almost zero transactions fees and reduced much bottlenecks, which its big sister is guilty of having.

Technical Analysis: Litecoin is a parabolic mover with very high interest, sharp spikes up and down are the norm here. At 50.00 or lower I am a fan! Technologically it is what Bitcoin wishes it was in terms of speed and capability an advanced bitcoin that again is under priced, on a breakout the stampede might be crushing, because of the super high level of interest we will have this as #1 of our plays, those big swooshes up and down could indicate early we are off to the races for others as well.

These are the six coins, where we have our pending orders setup. Once activated we just forget about them and hodl. We don’t even think about day trading them, as the projects behind can change things in our daily reality, the projects behind might have impact to the world we live in – this is why will hold that tokens. This is a sweet long term portfolio and right now it is the perfect time to buy in. Of course there are way more to add up, though we searched for the combination of dirt cheap prices and reliable projects.

ALGOs have a Sell on BTC till Dec 7th ahead of the upcoming FORK on Oct 25th!? Does not seem likely that a fall would happen. ALGOs don’t care says a drop is coming till DEC 7th. Normally I only use the ALGOs in a large market like currency trading because of the number of computer buy/sell programs banks use. This aids me statistically in the calcs. With the emotional behavior of the cryptos will this even come close to working? Hmmm we are going to find out! Entry point is 4679 and above. I myself believe with how this trades and the coming fork it will have an EMOTIONAL run above the highs imo before suffering any pullback¬†¬Į\_(„ÉĄ)_/¬Į ALGOs usually beat me on high ARC value trades like this one though to note…

What are ALGOs?

ALGOs are sets of computations I use to determine the start and end times of buy and sell programs by large banks/countries/companies in the interbank market. These buy/sell programs often average out 23.6% of the hour which is about 14.16 minutes long.
