Crypto Wrapup, News and Bullet Points for the week of 10/15/2017 3

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 – IOTA -BQX – BAT all held back from the likely money flow to the upcoming Bitcoin Fork. Other note worthy events of the week were as follows ~

• Russian President Vladimir Putin is heard to say that Russia will issue its own ‘CryptoRuble’ at a closed door meeting held in Moscow, stated from local news sources. https://cointelegraph.com/news/breaking-russia-issuing-cryptoruble

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

• 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.

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

Trouble for ETH’s for Byzantium hard fork, with a bug found just days before and a low adoption rate of the updated software release/fix for it. https://www.coindesk.com/ethereums-geth-client-finds-vulnerability-less-two-days-before-fork/

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…

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  – but 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 – capital 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 – what 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™ 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 – 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.

Hedge ICO - The S&P 500 of Crypto (ICO Last Days Running) 9

 

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 “go-to” 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:

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:
