Gaming Firm Wants to Pay Players to Mine Cryptocurrency

When the crypto chips are down companies often seek alternative methods of generating income. Gaming equipment giant Razer wants to pay gamers to mine crypto using their graphics cards.

The new crypto rewards program is called ‘Razer SoftMiner’, and it enables users to put their GPUs to work mining “Silver” which according to the firm is not actually a cryptocurrency. The catch for the miners is that they don’t get to keep what they mine but will get rewarded in the way of discounts or offers from the company. In a Tweet the firm stated;

“Have a gaming rig on idle at home? Here’s a new way to score Razer Silver: launch Razer SoftMiner on your PC and start racking up Silver—one step closer to the reward you want, for doing nothing at all.”

It does come with the caveat that running the software “uses a substantial amount of your GPU power,” according to PC Gamer. The FAQ goes on to explain;

“We work with crypto mining technology to harness your computer’s GPU. In turn, we award you with Silver, giving you access to Razer’s ecosystem and suite of rewards.”

In other words the San Francisco based company will be keeping the crypto that users mine and offering them other tokens to trade for ‘rewards’. It has not specified which cryptocurrency will be mined but it will have to be one that can be done using graphics cards and not higher powered hardware. There does not seem to be an advantage for users that can simply install their own software to mine crypto which they can at least keep themselves.

Razer has added that mining speed will be affected by the specifications of the GPU and obviously the amount of idle time that can be dedicated to it. “If you have the proper setup, you can earn approximately 500 Razer Silver or more within a day!,” it added without specifying the value of this ‘silver’.

Someone had crunched the numbers and came out with a value of around $0.44 per day mining at full power, or $0.0009 per token. Another pinch is that the silver mined expires after a year so it must be redeemed before then which prevents amassing a whole lot of it.

Considering the cost of electricity and the wear and tear on the hardware this does not sound very lucrative at all. A win for Razor it seems, especially if it can accumulate enough crypto at low prices and then sell the stash when the markets recover.

Bitcoin (BTC) Stable At $3,400: Analyst Compares Crypto With Dotcom Bubble

Bitcoin Stable At $3,400, Altcoins In Similar Position 

Interestingly, after a multi-week bout of lower lows, the crypto market at large stabilized on Tuesday and Wednesday, as Bitcoin (BTC) found itself trading in a tight range between $3,300 and $3,500. Since Ethereum World News’ previous market update, released not 24 hours ago, the aggregate market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies has barely budged, up by $1.4 billion (~1.2%) to $111.39 billion in comparison to yesterday’s $109.9 billion.

Like crypto asset values, volumes posted by exchanges have begun to slow, with 24-hour volumes per Live Coin Watch amounting to $5.9 billion, down $1 billion from the $6.9 billion tallied by the platform yesterday. CoinMarketCap statistics have echoed the dissipation of volume, as its 24-hour volume statistic has fallen from $13 billion to $11 billion, where it remains now.

Although BTC underwent a small uptick on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, with the asset moving as high as $3,460 on Coinbase, Bitcoin has been relatively laid back, failing to break out or fall throughout any key levels of support or resistance. Many eyes are looking to BTC’s year-to-date lows, and the resistance situated at $4,000 as levels of interest.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin has found itself at $3,380 on Coinbase and $3,440 as a global average, making it clear that the asset has found a semblance of stability in the $3,400 range. BTC is currently 0.57% in the past 24 hours.

XRP, Ethereum (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC) followed BTC with precision over the past day, posting gains that were all under a mere 1%. Notable outliers included EOS, which posted a 4.13% gain after a dismal week, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin SV (BSV) — as the two both lost 2% — and Tezos (XTZ), as the asset surged by 15.42% presumably due to the fact that Huobi Global announced support for the up-and-coming network.

Analyst Compares Crypto To Nasdaq Boom (And Bust)

Speaking with MarketWatch’s William Watts, the outlet’s deputy markets editor, Russ Mould, an investment director at British investment platform AJ Bell, drew lines between the Dotcom boom at the turn of millennia to 2017/2018’s crypto boom & bust.

Mould claimed that crypto’s performance throughout 2018 “looks like many that we’ve seen before across a wide range of asset classes,” adding that the status of the market today propagates “vicious bear traps,” sending crypto “HODLers” even further into the ground. He explained that the Nasdaq, in the midst of its collapse in 2003, tried to break out multiple times, but failed miserably — not too different than Bitcoin’s stints at $10,000, $6,200, and $3,500 today.

Mould isn’t the only analyst to make such connections between two of history’s largest bubbles. In a post titled, “What Bear Markets Look Like,” Twitter angel investor Fred Wilson, who heads Union Square Ventures, noted that just like technology stocks in 2002/2003, cryptocurrencies have posted a more than 80% loss in a year’s time.

The prominent investor added that cryptocurrencies, even BTC, could head lower from here. Giving his statement some rationale, Wilson explained that once Amazon (AMAZ) declined to 20 percent of its all-time high, the then-startup saw its public valuation experience another 50 percent haircut, summating to a jaw-dropping 90 percent loss.

AMAZ’s debacle in the early 2000s may have been nothing but a blip on its multi-decade chart, but Wilson, a Bitcoin believer himself, is visualizing how cryptocurrencies could fall further, even while they have ground-breaking potential and seemingly endless upside.

Still, Wilson, a legendary venture capitalist, ended his aforementioned blog post with an optimistic tone, writing:

“I think some crypto asset (and possibly a number of crypto assets) will have a price chart like Amazon’s current one in 18 years. But we will have to do what Amazon did, hunker down and build value and survive, for quite a while to get there. And I think things will get worse before they get better.”

Ethereum (ETH) Futures Rumors Mount, As CBOE’s Bitcoin Foray Turns One

CBOE’s Bitcoin Foray Turns One

As noted by Tom Hearden, a senior trader at Skylands Capital, subsequently relayed through MarketWatch, one year and one day ago, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE Global Markets) made history, becoming one of the first financial institutions to launch a fully-fledged Bitcoin (BTC) product.

Now that crypto is in the midst of a bear market, might as well look back and reminisce… right?

This instrument was, of course, a BTC-backed futures contract that became an industry hot topic near-instantly. Still, in Ethereum World News’ original report on the matter, which seems decades old now, community members divulged that they were dissatisfied with the product’s launch, as the Chicago-based institution’s webpage crashes just eight minutes after the launch of the first bonafide BTC futures. Yet, during that day in history, December 11th, 2017, BTC purportedly rose from $14,500 to $15,700 in minutes, presumably due to the influx of interest that speculators expected.

In fact, spot and futures BTC rose so fast that CBOE, likely inundated with queries from investors worldwide, had to halt trading on its market… twice. And now, amid the market lull, catalyzed by the absence of Bitcoin bulls, CBOE’s enamorment with halting trade is as apparent as ever. Case in point, the institution had to adjust its “Lower Price Limit” percentage twice, when the futures price hit $3,160, the year-to-date low.

Mati Greenspan spoke to the aforementioned financial media outlet on the matter of the Bitcoin futures, lauding them as a resounding success: He wrote:

They’ve managed to open up the market to users who otherwise wouldn’t have access, so in that regard, I think they have been somewhat of a success. Not only did they allow people to go long, but it opened up short selling to a wider audience.

While the eToro in-house crypto analyst painted the product in a good light, as it broadened Bitcoin’s horizons, MarketWatch noted that CBOE data indicates that the product failed to catalyze an unparalleled influx of institutional money.

Bakkt, Nasdaq, and ErisX To All Launch Bitcoin Futures

Although CBOE’s in-house crypto instrument might not have garnered boatloads of investment interest, there remain a number of firms looking to unveil futures for Bitcoin, and reportedly even Ethereum.

As reported by Ethereum World News previously, Bakkt, a diverse crypto startup partnered with the Intercontinental Exchange, Starbucks, and Microsoft, has the intent to launch a physically-backed Bitcoin futures product by January 24th, 2019, in an industry first.

ErisX, backed by TD Ameritrade, issued a similar announcement, seemingly aiming to undermine its rival in Bakkt. Not much is known about this venture, but many expect that it will offer a product roster that mirrors or somewhat resembles that of Bakkt.

Most recently, Nasdaq, the world-renowned financial institution, divulged that it is working in collaboration with crypto-friendly VanEck, to bring “crypto 2.0 futures” to market, with the firm presumably looking at Ethereum and Bitcoin as supported assets. Bloomberg has revealed that Nasdaq is planning to publicly embark on its first notable crypto foray by Q1 of 2019, pending a green light from the U.S. CFTC.

 

Ethereum Product Rumored

Even with all this hype surrounding Bitcoin-centric futures, a new contender is expected, if not slated to emerge into crypto’s alternative investment vehicle scene. This, if you haven’t guessed already, is Ether (ETH), the native asset of the “world computer” that is the Ethereum Network.

Just recently, the U.S. Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) hinted that it is looking into ETH. In a statement, the prominent American financial regulator claimed that it was seeking the public’s opinion on digital currencies, most notably Ethereum. In a public release, the somewhat crypto-friendly body wrote:

The RFI [Request For Information] also seeks to understand similarities and distinctions between Ether and bitcoin, as well as Ether-specific opportunities, challenges, and risks.

It is believed that the entity is seeking feedback to precede its ruling on an Ether-backed vehicle, such as purported Ethereum futures contracts backed by CBOE. Yet, a number of crypto commentators recently took to Twitter to allude to the theory that if Ethereum-backed futures, even a non-physical instrument, goes live, the aforementioned blockchain’s native asset may actually fall, due to “rehypothecation” — a common sight in traditional financial industries.

Ten-Year Jail Term Looms Large for Former Mt. Gox Chief

Japanese Prosecutors are clamoring a 10-year jail term for former CEO of defunct Japanese Bitcoin exchange, Mark Karpelès. This comes in the midst of the extension announced for civil rehabilitation claims.

More Trouble for Former Mt. Gox Chief

The nightmare does not seem to end for Mark Karpelès, as the Nikkei Asian Review today (December 12) reported that Japanese prosecutors at the Tokyo District Court, called for a 10-year jail term for the Mt. Gox CEO for embezzlement. According to the prosecutors, Karpelès embezzled 340 million yen from accounts belonging to customers in the last quarter of 2013.

Furthermore, the Japanese prosecutors claim that Karpelès used the embezzled funds for personal purposes, such as rent and business acquisitions. The prosecutors are also accusing the Mt. Gox Chief of forging the company’s data, thereby manipulating accounts illegally.

However, during the court proceedings, the defendant, Mark Karpelès, denied the accusations leveled against him. Karpelès responding to the embezzlement accusations stated that the funds acted as a temporary loan.

In response to the former CEO’s statement, the prosecutors at the court said:

There was no documentation of loans, and there was no intention of paying back the money.

The prosecutors went further to demand a harsh sentence for Karpelès. According to the Japanese prosecutors, the Mt. Gox Chief betrayed his clients’ confidence and misused most of their funds.

Former French CEO of defunct Japanese exchange, Mt. Gox, was initially arrested in 2015 for forging the exchange’s system to inflate its account. The Mt. Gox Chief stood trial two years later in July 2017 for the collapse of the company and embezzling funds. Karpelès in a later interview likened the experience of the company’s hack to falling from a building.

Mt. Gox’s Attempts to Pay its Debts

The collapsed Japanese Bitcoin exchange, Mt. Gox, has made moves to compensate its victims following the massive hack in 2014. Former clients of the defunct company called for civil rehabilitation proceedings in 2017, with the courts granting their claims in 2018.

Rehabilitation trustee for the defunct Japanese exchange, Nobuaki Kobayashi, announced  the commencement of the civil rehabilitation proceedings. Initially meant for individual creditors, the rehabilitation process later extended to corporate creditors. The deadline for filing claims was October 22, 2018.

However, Kobayashi announced an extension for filing claims to December 2018 for creditors who were yet to file claims. Although, the rehabilitation officer emphasized that only the court had the power to accept further claims after the initial deadline.

Forbes Analyst Expects Bitcoin (BTC) At $2,500, Awaits (Another) Awful Crash

Forbes Analyst Touts $2,500 Bitcoin Price Target

Clem Chambers, a markets analyst publishing to Forbes, recently released an article to the outlet’s contributor network, explaining why Bitcoin (BTC) could head lower in due time. Chambers, the CEO of ADVFN and a well-known financial industry journalist, first drew attention to how markets, Bitcoin included, normally react in, during, and after a “crash.”

The reporter, who hasn’t been afraid to comment on crypto historically, explained that market collapses happen in “stages,” as seen by BTC’s drawdown in 2018, which saw the asset fall to key levels at ~$10,000, $6,200, and, most recently, $3,500 for weeks at a time.

Elaborating on why his remark is relevant, Chambers noted that once a market, like crypto, stabilizes or range trades, it is only a matter of time before assets breakout, and “produce a sizeable move.” While Chambers’ comments may make it sound like he aims to be a soothsayer, he added that this isn’t a new phenomenon, nor is it rocket silence.

Applying this theory back to the only-decade-old crypto market, the ADVFN chief noted that these movements are only accentuated and compounded in crypto, as in his eyes, blockchain-based assets exist in a “very immature market” filled with certain shortcomings that may play out negatively from a price action standpoint.

More specifically, he explained that the Bitcoin price will likely “break south” for its next leg, explaining that $2,500 is a viable price point in his eyes, a reportedly key long-term support level in the eyes of some analysts.

For instance, Stephen Innes, Oanda’s head trader of the Pacific-Asia region, recently told Bloomberg that he expects for BTC to collapse to $2,500 by January 2019, due to a diverse set of bearish catalysts, namely the Bitcoin Cash hard fork, regulation, and potential crypto-related hacks. (Note: speaking with NewsBTC, he recently confirmed this sentiment, stating that regulation could weigh down on cryptocurrency market in the near future.)

Chambers, touching on his rationale behind this bearish catalyst, drew attention to the resurgence in crypto volatility, adding that this is an evident sign of “uncertainty,” which may only accentuate that this industry is undergoing a change of guard, so to speak.

At the time of writing, this market’s foremost asset, BTC, has found itself up 1.5% in the past 24 hours, situated at $3,490 a pop.

Crypto Bottom May Not Be In

Chambers’ analysis only confirms the growing sentiment that the cryptocurrency market hasn’t reached a long-term bottom. As reported by Ethereum World News previously, Naeem Aslam, a crypto-friendly contributor to Forbes and the chief market analyst at ThinkMarkets, recently told CoinTelegraph that he expects for BTC to find a floor, adding that sell-side sentiment indicates that a bottom is “close enough.”

Aslam isn’t alone in touting such sentiment, with Michael Bucella, a Goldman Sachs executive turned BlockTower Capital partner, also exclaimed that Bitcoin’s “distress cycle” has nearly run its course.

Although Chambers, the aforementioned Forbes contributor, painted a dismal picture for Bitcoin’s short-term, the reporter, like his industry pundit peers, made it clear that the next “plunge” would likely put BTC at its bonafide bottom. Case in point, the trader explained that if crypto’s collapse continues, the next leg will likely mark the end of Bitcoin’s near-year-long bout of capitulation. In summation, the financial markets savant wrote:

This means we can wait and see. The end of this crash will look awful, the ends of crashes always do. That is yet to come but the next leg could be here.

How The Bear Market Will Boost Development on the Tron (TRX) Network

In a December 6th tweet, the founder and CEO of Tron (TRX), Justin Sun, announced that the Tron foundation will build a fund to rescue developers on the Ethereum (ETH) and EOS networks. The offer by Justin had one additional condition: that developers migrate their DApps and projects to the Tron Network.

The tweet stated the following:

#TRON will build a fund to rescue #ETH and #EOS developers from the collapse of their platform as long as those developers migrate their dapps to #TRON. #TRX $TRX

Current Bear Market Causing Projects to Cease Operations

His tweet might have been inspired by the recent news that one of the main development team working on the Ethereum Classic (ETC) project, had to stop operations due to funding issues. The team, known as ETCDEV, announced via twitter that they could no longer continue their development efforts due to funding issues.

Justin Sun went on to announce that one of the developers at ETCDEV had contacted the Tron foundation. The tweet can be found below.

Projects Migrating to Tron and Justin’s Offer, Will Boost Development on the Tron Network

With Justin Sun’s funding offer for Ethereum and EOS developers to migrate to the Tron network, the bear market has provided the proper environment for development on the Tron platform to thrive.

Earlier on in the month, we saw the team at BitGuild move the Bitizens gaming DApp from the Ethereum network to that of Tron. We also saw the Tron foundation launch a $1 Million accelerator plan for DApp creation on the platform.

The financial incentive by the Tron foundation boosts the likelihood of DApp developers to migrate to the platform that has been praised for the following features:

  • High throughput of 2,000 transactions per second
  • Zero fees for smart contracts transactions not exceeding a certain bandwidth
  • Possibility of integrating zk-SNARKS to enhance privacy
  • January’s NiTRON event to discuss all things blockchain on the Tron network
  • Compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine

Conclusion

The bear market has forced many DApp developers to either adjust their operational budgets or close down shop completely. Justin Sun and the Tron foundation has however encouraged developers to migrate from the Ethereum and EOS platforms through the aforementioned incentive of funding their projects. Therefore, 2019 might just be the year where we will see DApp creation on the Tron network increase tremendously.

What are your thoughts on Justin’s offer to developers on the Ethereum and EOS networks? Please let us know in the comment section below.

What to Expect from ‘The 12 Days of Coinbase’ Event

The popular cryptocurrency exchange of Coinbase launched a new 12 day event similar to the popular Christmas carol of  ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’. The Christmas carol has been long known to be a song that talks about giving gifts to loved ones in a 12 day period. In the classic song, the value and importance of each gift increases as the days go by with the first day being Christmas day.

Unlike the popular song, the team at Coinbase chose to start their 12 days of giving on the 10th of December. The 12 day event ends on the 21st of December which is four days before Christmas.

The team at Coinbase also describes how they will announce their ‘gifts’ every day.

Each day at noon PST we’ll announce new features, support for new cryptocurrencies, and more. Check back daily!

First and Second Days of Giving by Coinbase

On the first day of the 12 day event, the team at Coinbase announced that customers in the United States, could now spend their crypto balances on WeGift e-gift cards. The gift cards can now be purchased at dozens of vendors. Customers will enjoy no withdrawal fees and bonuses of up to 10% on select vendors thus making it easier to use crypto for day to day purchases of goods and services.

On the second day of the 12 Days of Coinbase, the exchange donated $10,000 in ZCash (ZEC) to support GiveCrypto.org‘s project in the Venezuelan border town of Santa Elena de Uairen. The exchange went on to explain how the donation will be put to use:

With our gift, the organization will put $1 USD worth of crypto directly into the crypto wallets of more than 100 families in Santa Elena every day for 3 months.

Recipients can purchase food and basic supplies at a local store that accepts payments in crypto, subsidizing everyday expenses — this $1 USD equivalent per day can buy 1–2 kilos of protein or 2-kilos of starches and vegetables.

Recipients will come from the networks of Venezuelan families already in GiveCrypto.org’s program with Bonnum.

10 Days to Go

Coinbase has already revealed the first two gifts. We now have 10 more days and 10 more gifts to receive from Coinbase. The exchange is surely to increase the value of their gifts to worthy causes and to their customers as time goes by.

Coinbase To List More Digital Assets in the Next 10 Days

The exchange has recently announced that its new strategy is driven by customers. They have noted that the one thing their customers want is new cryptocurrencies on the platform. This in turn leaves the door wide open for the exchange to list popular cryptocurrencies such as XRP, Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA) as part of their 12 day event.

The exchange’s commitment to its customers can be found in the following tweet a few hours ago.

What are your thoughts on the 12 Days of Coinbase event? Do you think they will list XRP, XLM or ADA? Please let us know in the comment section below.
