July 23, 2018

 

General Market Outlook

 

The market continues to re-balance after a major uptrend last week. The top 100 coins are just about split between up or down by 1% to 4%, but trading volume has been steadily increasing over the past 24 hours, up to almost $15 Billion. Holo (HOT) is by far the highlight in the past 24 hours - up over 56%. Bitcoin (BTC) is right around  $7,700 For +3% and a total market dominance of about 46.2%, and Ethereum (ETH) is right at $465 for -1% change in the past 24 hours. Market cap for the overall cryptocurrency market is up just about $2 billion to $288 billion total.

 

 

Major Headlines

The two people behind Walmart’s totally revamped e-commerce business tag-team #13. The founders of the now crypto-friendly exchange platform Robinhood tag-team #24. CEO of Telegram (remember the $1.7B ICO?) Pavel Durov sits at #25.

 

$1.5 Billion To Blockchain Projects In Nanjing City

 

A city in China will be home to the first Industrial Public Chain Summit (IPCS), fueled by government and blockchain partnerships of $10 billion yen ($1.5B USD). It wasn’t even a year ago that the Chinese government actually banned all ICOs completely. But then in May, the China Electronic Information Industry Development (CCID) released a list ranking blockchain projects, expressing that the country is taking the technology very seriously. Last month they released an update to their rankings. The Zhongguancun Blockchain Industry Alliance is working with officials in Nanjing City to use funding in part to actually move selected companies to the city. The first two are reportedly, UDAP Foundation and TokenX Community
