More Crypto Exchanges Join the "Killer App" Club
Blockchain fundraising is the “killer app” according to Changpeng Zhao (CZ), CEO of major cryptocurrency exchange Binance, and more exchanges are dipping their toes into it. Among them are OKEx and Bittrex International: the former is preparing to launch a token launch platform, while the latter has announced its first Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) starting March 15th, 2019 at 10 am KST.
Andy Cheung, Head of Operations at cryptocurrency exchange OKEx, has announced on his Twitter profile that the company is going forward with a token launch platform, although he has not clarified when: “Many has asked if we'll do a token launch platform. The answer is YES. We've prepared it for months. And now it is ready to launch,” Cheung wrote. OKEx was not available for an immediate comment.
Meanwhile, cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex is already starting to use its platform. The exchange will soon host an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) on behalf of a project whose team is aiming to create a blockchain-powered game data ecosystem. The South Korean startup, known as RAID, has provided Bittrex with 17 billion of their native XRD tokens for the IEO. The IEO is open to authorized users and XRD tokens will be available for purchase for Bitcoin. The offering also marks the first IEO to be hosted on the Bittrex International Platform.
The Bittrex International Platform reminded many in the community of Binance’s Launchpad, a token launch platform, but CZ does not see a problem with that: “The race to see who lists first is overrated, and short term focused. Exchange users are very liquid. They move around all the time. We just focus on improving our products and services for the long run,” he replied to a Twitter user questioning his interest on listing the coin on Binance.
🔜 Platon Finance (PLTC)
Platon Finance is an insured crypto-financial ecosystem, which aims to connect the traditional fiat money market with digital currencies on a secured and user-friendly ecosystem.
Platon Finance has been on a road to solve some of the most common problems of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, which is mostly due to the lack of trust in cryptocurrency as an investment or payment method and the low usability and security issues with wallets and exchanges. These are contributing factors to the reason that crypto has not met mass adoption. To remove these problems, Platon Finance platform will offer multiple features which aim to combat those problems.
The Platon Wallet has already been launched and is insured by Lloyd's Syndicate. By offering an insured wallet, Platon Finance has removed the trust and security issues within existing wallets/exchanges. They additionally aim to increase security and guarantee this by partnering with Symantec Corporation, which is a world-wide known cyber-security corporation.
Platon Finance will have a multifunctional platform called Platon Club. The Club will be the main platform that Platon Finance will be built on and through it they will offer a variety of features for their users. Users will be able to control everything via the Platon Club while they are being educated about cryptocurrencies. Platon Finance aims to make partnerships with several exchanges and allow their users to trade on those exchanges via Platon Club. Additionally, users will be able to buy real properties through the Club and participate in lots of unique projects, which will be launched by Platon Finance.
Moreover, Platon Finance will provide a prepaid payment card called Platon Card which can be used, alongside the PlatonCoin, on the Platon Club.
Besides all those future aims, they have already partnered with an e-commerce cloud platform called Mozayc. Mozayc is an intelligent cloud tool (SaaS) for creating and managing websites and e-shops in the global online marketplace. They provide an all-in-one solution to run a website and/or e-shop. This partnership will implement PlatonCoin into e-commerce and extend its use.
PlatonCoin, which is an Ethereum ERC20 based token, will be the primary currency of the Platon Finance ecosystem. It will be used to pay the fee for transactions made via the Platon Wallet and as an investment tool for advancing in various innovative projects in IT, charity and environmental projects.

"Smartphone Coins" Pump Ends With Cosmo Dump
"Smartphone Coins" - Cosmo Coin (COSM), and Enjin Coin (ENJ) - saw their prices skyrocketing in the past 24 hours. However, COSM, trimmed its gains (around 90%) just to 6% in a matter of minutes, while ENJ also corrected lower.
The rally was prompted by the South Korean media unsourced reports that a partnership between Enjin Coin and tech giant Samsung has been supposedly confirmed. However, reports do not specify any further about the partnership. Moreover, there is no new COSM-related announcements.
As previously reported, the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone, whose release date is set for March 8, will have a wallet which will reportedly support COSM and ENJ.
However, no further official information has been released since then.
Meanwhile, Changpeng "CZ" Zhao, CEO of major cryptocurrency exchange Binance, tweeted earlier today: "Congrats to $ENJ, solid tech wins. #BUIDL", however the tweet was deleted later.
COSM is the token for South Korean beauty review dapp Cosmee. ENJ is the cryptocurrency of the Enjin platform dedicated to supporting easier creation of gaming content and economies based on virtual assets.
Bitcoin and Altcoins Hesitate Ahead of the Weekend
In the past few hours, the market sentiment improved for a few small cap altcoins, which helped bitcoin in moving higher. BTC stayed above the USD 3,850 support and it recently climbed above the USD 3,900 and USD 3,920 levels. However, the price failed to extend gains and it is currently (UTC 08:10 AM) consolidating near USD 3,900. On the other hand, ethereum continues to face a strong resistance near the USD 140 resistance. ETH/USD is currently trading above USD 135, with a flat structure. Ripple price is down around 1% and it seems be heading towards the USD 0.312 support level.
There was a strong support formed above the USD 3,850 level and bitcoin price attempted to clear the USD 3,900 resistance. There was a spike above the USD 3,920 before BTC faced sellers near USD 3,930. The price retreated to USD 3,900 and it is currently consolidating gains.
An initial support is near the USD 3,860, followed by USD 3,850. The main support is at USD 3,800, where sellers may struggle. On the upside, the price must gain bullish momentum above USD 3,900 and 3,920 to establish a solid bullish wave. The next resistance is at USD 4,000 and USD 4,040.
Ethereum price continued to struggle near the USD 140 resistance and it recently declined below the USD 138 level. On the downside, there is a strong support formed near the USD 135 level.
Therefore, the price may trade in a range above the USD 135 support before it either climbs above the USD 140 resistance or extend losses below the USD 135 support in the near term.
Bitcoin cash, eos and ripple price
Bitcoin cash price extended losses below the USD 132 and USD 130 support levels. BCH/USD is down around 2% and it seems like it could continue to move down towards the USD 126 or USD 125 support zone.
EOS started a downside correction below the USD 3.85 and USD 3.50 support levels. The price is currently trading near the USD 3.75 level and it seems like sellers could aim the USD 3.65 support level in the coming sessions.
Ripple price declined recently below the USD 0.315 and USD 0.314 support levels. XRP/USD is currently trading near USD 0.313, but it may test the USD 0.312 support level before it could rebound above USD 0.315.
Other altcoins market today
In the past few hours, many small cap altcoins rallied and posted heavy gains, including ENJ, AOA, CRO, DGTX, REPO, PAI, RVN, LINK and MANA. Out of these, ENJ rallied more than 70% and AOA is up close to 55%.
Overall, there are many positive signs on bitcoin charts, suggesting more gains above the USD 3,900 and USD 3,920 levels. BTC buyers are likely to remain in action and they could aim USD 4,000 or even USD 4,150 before the end of the week.

QuadrigaCX Granted Respite with Creditors Held at Bay
A Supreme Court judge has handed troubled Canadian cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX a further six weeks’ protection from its creditors as it continues a frantic search for some USD 140 worth of missing cryptocurrencies.
Per Canadian newspaper the Globe and Mail, the judge stated that creditors will have to wait until April 23 before they can bring legal action against the company, with some 115,000 customers affected by QuadrigaCX’s failure to locate their funds – which appeared to have vanished since the mysterious death of the exchange’s founder Gerald Cotten, late last year.
Major figures in the cryptocurrency industry have accused the company of attempting a cover-up.
Quadriga lawyer Maurice Chiasson told the judge that the decision to grant the extension had needed to be made in order to prevent a “free-for-all” as lawyers close in on the beleaguered company. Chiasson argued, “We would see some lawsuits filed if Quadriga were not granted an extension. Such proceedings could be filed in multiple jurisdictions. They could be conflicting.”
Cotten’s widow, Jennifer Robertson, meanwhile, has asked the court that she be repaid USD 225,000 of her own money spent on legal costs as she forked out to help the exchange win protection from its creditors earlier this year. The judge said on Tuesday that the request – which per Bloomberg was protested by lawyers representing the creditors – would be deferred to another day. Robertson’s lawyer stated that she wanted to step away from the case as she felt she was “not versed” in cryptocurrency-related matters, and had rejected taking on a directorial role in the firm.
The same judge also approved the appointment of senior VP Peter Wedlake, of auditing firm Grant Thornton, as QuadrigaCX’s new acting chief restructuring officer.
Meanwhile, south of the border in the United States, a city in New York has lifted a ban on crypto mining. According to media outlet WAMC, Plattsburgh’s city council voted 5:1 in favor of a motion to overturn an 18-month ban on new mining projects imposed in March last year by the city’s mayor.
Electricity prices had been driven up across the board for local residents following a spike in mining activities in the area.
The CEO of a Plattsburgh cryptocurrency mining firm told the same media outlet, “The price of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general has gone down substantially, but there is still some opportunity ... I think Plattsburgh will have some industry come in and this will be a great place for some data centers in the future.”
Bitcoin and Altcoins In Red With Sellers In Control
This past week, bitcoin struggled near a few important resistances such as USD 3,850 and USD 3,900. BTC/USD failed to climb above the USD 3,900 resistance and finally started a downward move. The price broke the key support at USD 3,800 to move into the red zone. Similarly, ethereum price failed to climb above the USD 138 and USD 140 resistance levels, resulting in a drop below the USD 132 and USD 130 support levels. Ripple price also trimmed most its gains and declined below the USD 0.315 and USD 0.308 support levels. The current price action is bearish and it seems like there could be more losses in bitcoin and altcoins before buyers take a strong stand in the coming days.
After many failed attempts near the USD 3,900 resistance, bitcoin price started a strong decline. BTC/USD broke the key USD 3,820 and USD 3,800 support levels to enter a bearish zone. Sellers even pushed the price below the USD 3,750 support level.
The price is currently (UTC 10:20 AM) down more than 2%, with an immediate support at USD 3,700. The next key weekly support is at USD 3,650, below which the price could tumble towards the USD 3,540 support. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the USD 3,800 level. If there is a clear break above USD 3,800, the price could revisit the USD 3,900 resistance. The main weekly resistance for buyers is near the USD 4,000 level.
Ethereum price topped near the USD 140 resistance and declined heavily. ETH/USD broke the USD 132 and USD 130 support levels to start a short-term downtrend. The next key support is at USD 125, where buyers could emerge.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near USD 130 and USD 132, above which the price could recover towards the key weekly barrier at USD 140.
Bitcoin cash, eos and ripple price
Bitcoin cash fell significantly after it failed to stay above the USD 140 support. BCH/USD is down more than 6% and it recently broke the USD 126 and 125 supports. The next immediate support is at USD 122 and USD 120.
EOS gained bearish momentum and declined more than 8% to breach the USD 3.50 and USD 3.40 support levels. The price is trading below USD 3.30 and it could soon test the USD 3.20 support level.
Ripple price also followed a bearish pattern and broke the USD 0.320, USD 0.315 and USD 0.308 support levels. XRP/USD is now approaching the USD 0.300 support, below which the next support is at USD 0.292. The main resistances are at USD 0.308 and USD 0.310.
Other altcoins market today
During the past few sessions, many small cap altcoins traded lower and fell more than 8%, including THETA, KMD, ELF, HOT, ONT, ETP, STEEM, ICX, MANA, ARK and DGTX. Out of these, THETA is down around 13% and KMD declined roughly 11%.
Overall, the crypto market moved into the red zone, with a close below USD 3,800 in bitcoin. There could be a short-term upside correction, but buyers are likely to struggle near USD 3,800 and USD 3,820. Going forward, there could be more losses in BTC and altcoins before buyers reappear.

Recent Rebrands Show that Crypto is Growing Up
Rebrands are tricky. Coca Cola disastrously rebranded itself as 'New Coke' in 1985, forcing lovers of its original formula to launch a campaign calling for the immediate return of its old branding and taste. Other rebrands in recent memory – Gap, MasterCard, Tropicana – have been no less shambolic, creating the impression that companies shouldn't really ever take the plunge.
Meanwhile, in cryptoland, the likes of Kraken, ShapeShift, Zcash Company, and Litecoin have rebranded in recent months, while other projects – such as RailBlocks/Nano and Antshares/NEO – have done something similar over the past year or so.
Such moves vary in terms of how much rebranding is involved. Nonetheless, they all indicate that crypto is maturing, and that the industry is making increasingly concerted efforts to entice mainstream customers.
Signs of maturation
It's no secret that 2018 was something of a comedown for the industry after the dizzying highs of 2017. This is a large part of the reason why, in 2019, many crypto-related companies and projects have turned to rebranding, since it’s one obvious strategy for increasing the willingness of investors and the general public to adopt crypto.
"One would be forgiven for thinking that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies were doomed after the hype of 2017 subsided and we entered the current bear market," says Simon Dingle, a Bitcoin analyst and author of In Math We Trust: The Future of Money.
Analyst: Third Round of Cryptopia Wallets Emptied
A third wave of crypto wallets tied to cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia were emptied to the tune of around USD 30,000 - USD 40,000 worth of ether, co-founder and CEO of blockchain analysis protocol and platform Elementus, Max Galka, told Cryptonews.com.
This makes it a smaller-scale theft than the previous two rounds, but raises the question - why are people still depositing their cryptocurrencies into Cryptopia-owned wallets?
Contrary to many warnings issued by both Cryptopia and Elementus, as well as the media coverage surrounding this story, users seem to continue depositing their assets into the wallets that were still at risk, making them easy pickings for the hackers.
“People keep depositing,” Galka said. “As long as that happens, these guys will continue taking the money. Any wallet that previously belonged to Cryptopia - we assume it is under the hackers’ control.”
As for the amount that was stolen, Elementus previously tweeted that around USD 3.2 million worth of tokens were liquidated before this incident, most of that on cryptocurrency exchange Etherdelta. “Now that number is around USD 4 million,” Galka said.
