South Korean Internet Giant Kakao’s Blockchain Platform to Launch in June

South Korean internet giant Kako has announced the release date of its blockchain platform.

Ground X, the blockchain arm of South Korean internet giant Kakao Corp, has announced the launch date of its own blockchain platform, a Cointelegraph correspondent learned at Consensus 2019 on May 13.

Per the announcement, the Klaytn mainnet will launch on June 27, 2019, and will purportedly be a major driver of blockchain adoption in the country. Kakao has a 96% market share in South Korea, with a presence in messaging, gaming, content services, financial services and mobility services.

Kakao announced its intention of launching a blockchain platform last March, and released a testnet version of Klaytn in October. The platform focuses on decentralized apps (DApps). As of October last year, developers were working with around ten domestic and international partners to test the new ecosystem.

More recently, Kakao has repeated its initial coin offering (ICO) to raise an additional $90 million for Klaytn. In December, the firm announced plans to raise a total of $300 million through Ground X to develop a native token.

Kakao also purportedly has plans to release an integrated crypto wallet in its messaging app, KakaoTalk, following the release of the Klaytn mainnet, according to South Korean outlet Fnnews.

TrustToken Launches Stablecoin Backed by Canadian Dollar

TrustToken has released its latest stablecoin, TrueCAD, tied to the Canadian dollar.

TrustToken has released its latest stablecoin, TrueCAD, on May 1, 2019. The latest in TrustToken’s line of fiat-backed stablecoins, its value is linked to the Canadian dollar.

TrustToken has also created a number of other stablecoins, such as TrueUSD (U.S. dollars), TrueGBP (British pounds) and TrueAUD (Australian dollars); each of these backed at a purported 1:1 ratio with their associated fiat currencies.

For now, holders can use these four stablecoins on the TrustToken app, and expect them to be listed on exchanges “over the coming weeks and months.” TrustToken further notes that some of their products are already being traded on top exchanges such as Binance, Huobi, and OKEx.

Stablecoins are digital tokens that are backed by either a separate asset like a mineral or currency, or are stabilized by an algorithm. Moreover, stablecoins may take a number of different forms, and do not even necessarily require backing from a tangible asset. TrustToken alludes to this fact in their statement about TrueCAD:

“We wanted a simple stablecoin, without the need to trust some company’s hidden bank account or special algorithm. […] Our open source smart contracts ensure a 1:1 parity between TrueCAD and CAD in the accounts.”

TrueCAD and TrueAUD are two of four new stablecoins pegged to national currencies that TrueToken announced would release in 2019. Further on the agenda for the year are TrueEUR and TrueHKD, for euro and Hong Kong dollars, respectively.

Lawyers recently confirmed in court documents that the Tether stablecoin USDT is not backed 1:1 with U.S. dollars (its reserve asset). In fact, Zoe Phillips of law firm Morgan Lewis said that only three-quarters of Tether reserves had USD backing.

Coinbase Custody Now Supports Mainnet KIN Tokens

Coinbase Custody announced immediate support for mainnet KIN tokens.

Coinbase Custody announced immediate support for the mainnet iteration of the KIN token today, April 30, 2019.  

As Cointelegraph previously reported, KIN is a cryptocurrency created by Canadian organization Kik Interactive of Kik Messenger fame. The token was originally developed on the Ethereum and Stellar networks and now operates on its own blockchain (a fork of Stellar).

“KIN holders can now benefit from Coinbase Custody’s industry-leading offline storage platform and insurance coverage,” they say.

Coinbase Custody is a custodial service provided by San-Francisco-based platform  Coinbase. Coinbase Custody was first announced on Nov. 16, 2017 and launched on July 2, 2018. As we previously covered, its main goal has been to provide robust security of crypto assets, which according to Coinbase has been institutional investors’ “‘number one’ concern.”

In 2019, Coinbase Custody has continued to expand its capabilities. Coinbase Custody has become directly integrated with the Coinbase over-the-counter (OTC) trading desk, with the intention of speeding up the process of a user accessing offline funds. Coinbase Custody has also begun to move into staking, which Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptocurrency networks use to incentivize user activity.

Tone Vays: When Bitcoin (BTC) Reverses, Altcoins Won’t Return

Altcoins Won’t Return, Bitcoin Will Reign 

CoinTelegraph recently sat down with Tone Vays, a former traditional markets trader turned Bitcoin (BTC) diehard, to talk about what happened to the cryptosphere in 2018, and what he expects will occur heading into 2019. Interestingly, contrary to the bearish sentiment he touted in recent months, the analyst claimed that BTC could perform well during 2019.

Vays, when asked about what was crypto’s “most important event in 2018,” drew attention to the decline in the Bitcoin price, and, more importantly, the correlated collapse in a majority of crypto assets (altcoins). The trader, formerly of J.P. Morgan, explained that 2018’s bear market is “significantly different than what happened back in 2014 or 2015.”

The content creator noted that this time around, “the altcoin bubble will not return,” adding that he doesn’t expect for alternative crypto assets to undergo a resurgence. Vays hinted at the fact that the industry has already preemptively indicated that altcoins won’t return, as made apparent by the Bitcoin Cash debacle (he called it an “implosion”), and other smaller events that accentuated the irrelevancy of these coins.

While some bash Vays for this belief, he has only recently doubled-down on this anti-altcoin sentiment. Vays has claimed that Ethereum (ETH) could fall to $0.2, just shy of its original price stipulated by its token offering.

Jimmy Song, a leading Bitcoin educator, commentator, and developer, echoed Vays’ point, explaining that many “crappy projects (altcoins)” are in the midst of their death throes, and will be eventually flushed out of this ecosystem. Song, explaining why this industry occurrence is significant, noted that there has been a “lot of malinvestment in this space,” making the removal of fluff/worthless projects positive for bonafide investment opportunities.

Returning to his advocacy for the flagship cryptocurrency, Song explained that Bitcoin’s ten year anniversary accentuates that it can be trusted over a project that is two or three years old. This was likely said in reference to his skepticism about Ethereum.

Bitcoin Will Likely Reverse In 2019, Says Vays

Explaining his outlook on the cryptocurrency industry heading into 2019, Vays noted that consumers will start to realize that Bitcoin didn’t die, nor is slated to die. Vays noted that the realization that BTC could reverse in 2019 may also begin to dawn on traders, adding that he personally believes a reversal will occur during the latter half of 2019, rather than the beginning.

Doubling-down on his skepticism regarding projects that don’t involve the OG Bitcoin, the long-time advocate noted that 2019 will be the time that Bitcoin will start to “separate itself from the rest of the crypto space.” He stated:

The marking of 2019 will be the end of the Bitcoin bear market, and the start of the next bull market. This time, with side chains, scaling, privacy, and I can’t wait [for it].

In closing, the leading investor quipped that if prospective Bitcoin “HODLers” are looking to allocate capital into a long-term position, the “best time to buy is always yesterday.

Legendary Investor: Bitcoin (BTC) Could Bottom At $3,000, Altcoins To Crash

“I’m Believe In The Bitcoin Narrative”

Peter Brandt, a legend in the commodity investment realm, recently sat down with CoinTelegraph to discuss his opinions on the current bear market. Although Brandt has traded traditional markets for decades, nearing five at this point, he lauded Bitcoin (BTC).

Discussing the bearish market conditions, Brandt first claimed that one of the “best things you can do [in trading]” is keeping your money intact, likely bashing the sentiment that “HODLing” or risky day trading can produce stellar profits in the long run. The American trader, who has authored a number of essential trading primers, added that while cryptocurrency diehards see “fiat” as a no-go, those who have “HODLed” government-issued currency have been “far better off than those stubbornly deciding that BTC will go to $100,000.”

And interestingly, Brandt, who currency touts 234,000 followers on his Twitter feed, noted that the active traders of today may “miss the big moonshot when it comes,” due to their penchant for using short-term indicators and viewing the market from a day-to-day perspective.

Although the trader bashed the idea of holding or trading cryptocurrencies in 2018, Brandt went on to explain that he’s becoming a “long-term buyer and holder of BTC.” However, in an apparent Bitcoin maximalist outburst, the CEO of Factor Trading added that he has “no time” for other “old coins” or macro caps, such as Ethereum (ETH) and XRP.

Touching on why he addresses the nascent crypto industry from such a perspective, Brandt noted that he’s a Bitcoin guy through and through, before quipping that he believes in the asset’s narrative — potentially as a digital store of value, or the world’s most secure transaction settlement layer. Further alluding to the theory that he’s not the biggest fan of altcoins, Brandt flat-out stated that he “thinks 98% to 99% of the coins out there are going to eventually be worthless,” even adding that his fellow pundits hold similar sentiment.

We Could Bottom Within Six Months, At $3,000 Per Bitcoin

When asked the age-old question about when the crypto market established a bottom, Brandt jumped on the question, as he was seemingly poised to give his insight to such a pertinent topic. He first explained that cryptocurrency markets are optimal for a chartist, as technical indicators actually give good insight.

As such, Brandt explained that according to his analysis of fractals, coupled with other indicators, he is calling for BTC to hit $2,900, but sees multiple scenarios that could be fleshed out. Firstly, he said that there’s a chance that the Bitcoin price won’t hit the aforementioned figure, as $3,000 is an extremely strong psychological level and a level of accumulation for long-term cryptocurrency advocates.

The other scenario, in the American trader’s mind, is that if BTC plunges below $2,900 with enough sell-side pressure, there’s a chance the asset could fall to $1,200 over a medium-term period.

Still, the Factor Trading chief noted that as lines can be drawn between 2014/2015’s cryptocurrency downturn and that of today, the market is likely entering its last leg of capitulation and despair — whether BTC falls to $2,900 or $1,200.

In closing, he doubled-down on his support for this budding asset, widely dubbed Digital Gold, by stating that he has 8% of his net worth in BTC, before stating that the cryptocurrency could find a bottom in the next six months, even at the low 3000s.

Tim Draper Doubles Down On $250,000 Bitcoin (BTC) Prediction, Cites Global Adoption

“All Times Are Good Times To Enter The Crypto Market”

Tim Draper, a legendary venture capitalist based in Silicon Valley, has long been a believer in Bitcoin (BTC), reportedly buying boatloads of the asset (a reported 40,000 coins) in 2014. And even while BTC has exploded in value since then, undergoing a bull run that sent cryptocurrencies ‘to the moon’, Draper has claimed that he hasn’t sold, as he still expects this newfangled asset class to boom in the long haul.

More specifically, speaking with CoinTelegraph, the “staunch” bull recently doubled-down on his $250,000/BTC price prediction, one of the most optimistic forecasts for the world’s foremost cryptocurrency.

Speaking on Bitcoin’s recent bout of capitulation, which saw the aggregate value of all cryptocurrencies fall under $130 billion, Tim, who runs a venture fund and entrepreneur-focused university that shares his surname, noted that the sell-off was simply a ‘fluctuation.”

He mused that this move, which proved to be devasting for retail investors, could have been catalyzed by market manipulators, before adding that bankers are “loving it” as crypto remains in a crisis, as such institutions have a vested interest in fiat. However, Tim, who parents a crypto-friendly venture capitalist, then explained that Bitcoin’s recent move lower could just be a byproduct of market cycles, potentially accentuated by external bearish pressures.

Adding to his sentiment that the decline isn’t out of the ordinary, Draper then noted that in any business, a disruptor — Bitcoin in the case of finance — often moves with immense volatility, even if the innovation holds immense value for the health of humanity.

Maintaining this optimistic thought process, Draper then noted that with 2018’s dip could “create a great opportunity for people to start becoming users of the currencies of the futures, crypto,” of course. Echoing claims he conveyed to Ran NeuNer of CNBC Africa’s “Crypto Trader” and OnChain Capital weeks ago, Draper alluded to the fact that fiat, tied to political forces, aren’t likely to survive.

Touching on this train of thought, the American crypto multi-millionaire stated:

I always look at a crisis as an opportunity. And that’s the way I’m looking at this one. All times are good times to enter the crypto market. If you are forward-thinking, you’re going to look and say ‘this is just better currency’, so it’s just a matter of time before the world adopts it. [This will happen] when everything I can do with fiat, I can do with Bitcoin.

Ardent Bitcoin Bull Draper Still In Love With Cryptocurrencies

Discussing the aforementioned point in-depth, Draper noted, dollars will eventually become irrelevant pieces of paper. More specifically, in Draper’s dream utopia, BTC usage in the real world won’t only be easy, but drastically more cost-effective than credit cards, which charge 2.5% to 4% on each transaction. He added that in the end, whether it be BTC or ETH, cryptocurrencies aren’t tied to a central bank, and aren’t subject to the whims of inflation and the flaws in human nature.

Keeping all this in mind, Draper then explained why he expects for $250,000/BTC to still occur sometime in the future. The venture capitalist first noted that the dollar will lose strength against BTC, while the aforementioned digital asset will begin to make up more and more of the global currency market.

Prominent Analyst: Crypto “Very Close” To Finding Bitcoin (BTC) Bottom

Crypto Analyst: Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork, Regulatory Qualms Have Been Bearish Catalysts 

Naeem Alsam, a crypto-friendly contributor to Forbes and the Chief Market Analyst at ThinkMarkets, recently sat down with CoinTelegraph in the outlet’s “Time To Buy Bitcoin [BTC]?” exclusive to discuss his opinions on the market, and where BTC could potentially bottom.

Alsam, echoing analysis done by a multitude of crypto insiders in recent weeks, did his best to discern what was the root cause for the chaos seen in the Bitcoin seas, which has seen BTC fold by ~40% in recent weeks.

The ThinkMarkets analyst first noted that there’s a regulatory issue looming over the cryptosphere, likely referencing the SEC’s recently renewed crackdown on ICO-funded projects, along with other government’s qualms with this asset class as a whole. Alsam, elaborating on what he meant, noted:

Everyone knows that because regulators are not friendly. And as long as they maintain the same stance then that we won’t see that huge rally for Bitcoin… and we all know that.

The cryptocurrency advocate then drew attention to the contentious hard forks seen recently, claiming that as many laud cryptocurrencies for their fixed supply, the essential inflation of “” supply may have deterred investors at large. He explained:

We continue to increase the supply, [and] this is not really a good sign for the industry… I think this [fork[ goes against the major core elements and core values of Bitcoin.

“Very Close” To Bitcoin Bottom

In spite of his comments, Aslam didn’t seem too bearish on Bitcoin’s short-term prospects. When asked about when this bear market could establish a long-term low, he exclaimed that the feelings of panic spreading throughout the cryptosphere indicates that a bottom as “close enough.”

He added that crypto is “very close to finding a bottom,” but was hesitant to pinpoint where BTC would find itself at a low. But, like Michael Bucella of BlockTower Capital, the ThinkMarkets representative noted that once the bottom is in, only a few lucky traders will put up BTC at the price level.

Adoption Holding Back Growth

Mati Greenspan, eToro’s in-house crypto-centric analyst, who also was featured in CoinTelegraph’s video, took the market with a bit more caution, hesitating to call an exact bottom for BTC or its altcoin brethren. When asked about what advice he could specifically give to “HODLers,” diehard believers of cryptocurrency, Greenspan, putting emphasis on a single concept, told everyone to “relax.”

He explained that investments, whether in nascent markets or otherwise, are all about playing a waiting game, adding that “HODLers” should look to make money while they wait on Bitcoin’s next move, rather than waiting to open or close a trade.

Bringing the conversation back to current market conditions — an incessantly talked about ‘flavor of the month’ in the cryptosphere — Greenspan noted that the return of market volatility can be chalked up to the arrival of institutional players. He added that such players, who often have more experience than crypto’s traders, are seeing current prices, with BTC under $4,000, as an optimal opportunity to make a foray.

Finally, when queried about his prediction for a bottom, the eToro analyst took an optimistic approach without pinning an exact price level. Greenspan stated:

So Bitcoin has gone through various boom and bust cycles over the course of its short history… You do get a lot of newcomers into the market, and then after that during the retracement, and then the relaxation period. This is an excellent time for people to up there knowledge to learn more about the industry, more about crypto assets, more about how things work.

Still, he added that these boom and bust cycles will likely continue, or at least until full adoption of cryptocurrencies is achieved — this industry’s endgame goal.

The Bitcoin Network’s Fundamentals Are Still Booming

Although Greenspan didn’t make it explicit, the eToro analyst is likely alluding to the sentiment that 2018’s bear market hasn’t been all that bad for bonafide cryptocurrencies and blockchain projects. Just recently, cryptocurrency advocate Anthony Pompliano, formerly of Facebook and Snapchat, took to a recent installment of Off The Chain, a crypto-centric newsletter he heads, to claim that “Bitcoin has become stronger,” even amid a BTC downturn.

Pomp added that even while mainstream media outlets have prematurely proclaimed that “cryptocurrency is dead!” and/or a Ponzi scheme, these cries for death throes aren’t taking the crypto’s fundamentals into account. As put by the Morgan Creek Digital partner, well-known in the cryptosphere for his anti-bank, pro-crypto rhetoric:

Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. The fundamental drivers of the decentralized technology network are actually growing.

Ethereum, third only to Bitcoin and XRP, has also seen its fair share of positive developments. For instance, Justin Drake, a researcher for the Ethereum Network, recently told Ran NeuNer that Serenity, or Ethereum 2.0, has been chugging along just fine. Drake claimed that researchers have continued to propose better and better designs for the upgraded blockchain, which would see Ethereum activate Sharding, a protocol likely to remove all future scalability qualms.

Even Vitalik Buterin, a co-founder of the Ethereum Project, lauded Serenity. At Devcon4, the Russian-Canadian coder noted that Ethereum 2.0 may eventually facilitate “pure PoS consensus, faster times to synchronous confirmation (8-16 seconds), economic finality (10-20 minutes),” and, most importantly, a 1,000x scalability upside.

And, just days ago, Binance, the world’s foremost cryptocurrency exchange, transferred over $510 million worth of BNB, its in-house ERC-20 token, for a mere $0.03 in transaction fees, a negligible amount for a transfer that would make 99.99% of investors, even whales, quiver in jealousy.

Taking this all into account, Tom Lee even claimed that the market’s foremost three assets, which were already aforementioned, have staying power, and have a chance to see global adoption in the future.

Crypto Bull: Bitcoin (BTC) Under $4,000 Driven By Emotional Overreaction

Parabolic Move, Then 80% Correction 

Ronnie Moas, an impassioned, outspoken Bitcoin (BTC) bull, recently sat down with CoinTelegraph in an exclusive interview. Speaking on crypto’s most recent downturn, which sent the aggregate value of crypto assets under $140 billion, Moas maintained his bullish sentiment, making it abundantly clear that BTC isn’t dead in the water.

When asked about how the crypto market is faring, Moas, the director of Standpoint Research, turned the question on its head, speaking on the dismal performance seen in global markets. He explained that half of the names on the S&P 500, the top 500 firms listed on American markets, are down by 25% to 50% since January, adding that stock investors have been sharing in the cryptosphere’s pain.

Returning to the question at hand, the prominent market analyst, doing his best to calm investors’ qualms, simply stated that we’ve been down this road before. Moas added that it is a common sight, almost as if there’s a cycle, to see Bitcoin undergo parabolic moves, before a subsequent 80% correction, as seen today. And with that in mind, the cryptocurrency advocate explained:

Every time we have a parabolic move, we knock out the high from the previous cycle. And I don’t think the parabolic move that I am expecting next year will be any different.

A piece of analysis recently completed by Rob Sluymer of Fundstrat corroborated Bitcoin’s penchant for cycles. The analysis noted that 2014/2015’s Bitcoin bear market is eerily mirroring that of 2018, both in terms of technical and overarching pattern capacities.

Weak Hands Are Getting Shaken Out Of Bitcoin

Touching on the current market sentiment, Moas, trying to imbue the audience with shock, noted that over the history of stock and crypto markets, those that sold amid a crash “ended up regretting it shortly thereafter — people jumped off bridges.” He went on to note that this unfortunate occurrence has happened during the Great Depression, Black Monday, Dotcom Bust, and the Great Recession, but then added that those who bought at the bottom did “very very well for themselves.”

Giving a vague price prediction, Moas, who seemed fired up, exclaimed that he doesn’t find it logical that gold’s market capitalization, a cool $8 billion, is 100x that of Bitcoin, and 60x that of crypto assets. This, of course, is likely in reference to the sentiment that Bitcoin, in all its digital glory, will eventually surpass gold, the world’s de-facto store of value for millennia.

Maintaining a positive angle on crypto’s recent crash, the Standpoint Research representative noted:

We are at the beginning of this game… we are in a price discovery phase. There are weak hands getting shaken out. People who’ve never been in a situation like this before are acting as if Bitcoin is going to zero, so I don’t think that’s happening.

Dollar Cost Averaging Into Bitcoin Isn’t A Bad Idea, Says Moas 

Closing off his comments, Moas noted that “the smart people” bought Bitcoin on its way down. Whether they have a cost basis of $9,000 or $4,000, the prominent market researcher stated that those who buy at lower values, especially as others capitulate, are likely to do very well. Wrapping up his remarks, in a fit of passion, Moas noted:

History repeats itself. And if you look back at financial market history, going back 100 years, the time that people made the most money is when markets crashed and the smart people took advantage of an overreaction and emotional selling that we are seeing right now… I know a company that is spending one hundred million dollars on mining rigs right now, and I think they know where Bitcoin is going.
