    Chasing fake volume: a crypto-plague
    In this piece I will expose why I believe more than $3 billion of all cryptoassets’ volume to be fabricated, and how OKex, #1 exchange rated by volume, is the main offender with up to 93% of its volume being nonexistent. I’ll endeavour to prove it by analyzing publicly available data

    When I set out to datamine for this piece, I had no idea I would end up talking about fake volume.

    I initially meant to gather data about cryptoassets liquidity, that could be a complement to volume. I thought it would prove an interesting indicator when assessing the value of an asset.

    I don’t think there’s a way to know if an ICO is truly ‘good’.
    It’s much easier to spot bad ICO’s that don’t have a chance than the opposite. Some negative traits for me include:

    • Teams raising funds that have yet to put significant work into their platforms ...

    It was only a matter a of time, there were clearly signs this was going to happen already out there when the SEC went after defunct “exchange” BitFunder. Today, the SEC made its biggest announcement yet: all the crypto exchanges are illegal unless they register with the SEC, why is this important; it turns out the entire $400B cryptocurrency ecosystem is based on trading altcoins or utility tokens ...

    ... The simple elegance of the Bitcoin protocol is what makes it work. With these three simple components, plus of course, bitcoins, the only currency accepted in the network, we now have the base protocol for peer-to-peer internet value transfers.

    Here’s a few examples of entrepreneurial endeavors I’ve seen people execute with a lot of success:

    • Create a project on top of the blockchain to extend it’s functionality. Projects like Variabl.io, NuCypher, Auger and Lightning take the base blockchain properties and extend it’s functionality. This can be done with a token or without a token ....

    The Bitcoin Scaling Debate: Context, Proposed Solutions, and the Future

    [​IMG]

    A familiar critique of Bitcoin is that “it does not scale” in the sense that, as it is currently implemented, the network is not capable of supporting a global payments system that requires many thousands of transactions per second. At the moment, this is true; Bitcoin can support up to 7 transactions per second as compared to the 2,000 transactions per second typically processed by Visa (with the potential to scale to an estimated 56,000 per second) ...

    ... The Petro (PTR) is an official cryptocurrency issued by the Venezuelan government and backed by the full faith of their gigantic 300 billion barrel oil reserves. In full compliance with ICO practices, a white paper was published for investors to review. This should be great news for the blockchain economy.
