Bitcoin price rises $500 in 24 hours

The price of bitcoin has shot up by almost $500 over the last 24 hours, causing a market-wide cryptocurrency resurgence that has seen ethereum and ripple cash surge in value by between 10 and 20 per cent. It’s latest gains come one week after bitcoin bucked months of steadily decreasing prices by rising more than $1,000 in the space of one hour. The world’s most valuable cryptocurrency has since consolidated its gains and is now heading towards $9,000 for the first time since March. At the time of writing, the price was $8,516, according to CoinMarketCap.

Bitcoin’s turn-around in fortunes appear modest when compared to other top-performing cryptocurrencies, with ethereum rising by 10 per cent since this time yesterday and ripple shooting up by 19 per cent.

Bitcoin cash, an off-shoot from bitcoin that is now the fourth most-valuable cryptocurrency, rose by 15 percent to take its market cap above $18 billion.

The latest price rise follows positive news in the cryptocurrency space in April. Last week, an Islamic scholar declared bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies halal under Sharia Law, potentially opening up the market to 1.8 billion Muslims around the world.

On Monday, IMF boss Christine Lagarde wrote a blog post in which she detailed the benefits of bitcoin and its underlying blockchain technology. Following last week’s unprecedented gains, The cryptocurrency analysts and experts predicted the cryptocurrency could see further gains that could take it to the levels it experienced at the end of 2017.

In December, It’s price peaked at close to $20,000 following a year of remarkable gains that saw its value increase more than 20-fold.

“I believe that we will see a comeback to the height achieved at the end of 2017 this year,” Olga Feldmeier, CEO of fintech firm Smart Valor.

So far, Litecoin has advanced around 6% since Wednesday, but Poloniex is yet to produce an explanation for the market freeze, which has since ended

Havven Launches eUSD, Its First Stablecoin

Australian based cryptocurrency, Havven, has launched the first iteration of its stablecoin, called eUSD. Havven is a decentralised payment network, and eUSD is the initial version of the nomin token, backed by ether, which seeks to keep a stable value of USD$1. eUSD is directly redeemable for ETH, and its release will allow Havven to observe and extract data that will assist in the rollout of the network.

Havven executed the largest token sale by an Australia-based cryptocurrency in February, raising USD$30 million. eUSD is currently able to be traded against ETH on IDEX and Radar Relay, as well as at the Havven website. The other token in the system, the havven token (HAV), is already trading against ETH on KuCoin, Qryptos, CoinSpot, and several other exchanges.

The founder of Havven, Kain Warwick, says this release is an important milestone in their roadmap for 2018. “After any token sale, it is vital for a project to prove that they can deliver quickly on the product they promised. The launch of eUSD demonstrates that we are committed to releasing a working version of the platform as soon as possible, to meet the need of a decentralised payment network and stablecoin.”

eUSD can be used for remittance and payments of all kinds, and Havven will soon be launching an eStore to demonstrate its viability as a payment method for everyday transactions.

eUSD is currently backed by ether, but later iterations of nomins will be backed by the value of the havven token. Havven-backed nomins are currently planned to initially be released by June, 2018, with a peg to USD. Havven-backed nomins that are pegged to other currencies—such as EUR, AUD, YEN, and GBP—are planned to be released by the end of 2018.

How Havven works

The Havven platform uses two tokens to achieve stability. The value of the havven token, which was sold in the token sale, provides the collateral for the platform. The nomin token is a stablecoin backed by the value of havvens, and is issued by havven holders who lock up their havvens as collateral. Any transactions operated with nomins distribute fees to havven holders, who are rewarded for controlling the supply of nomins to provide a stable value of $1. As more people use nomins for transactions, the value of havven tokens will increase due to the higher fees generated.

AirChain Network Introduces Mobile Application to Make the Air Freight Sector Transparent, Safe and Flexible Like Never Before

AirChain Network , a blockchain powered ecosystem designed especially for the air freight sector, is all set to revolutionize the industry by addressing long standing  problems such as transparency, safety, and flexibility. The platform’s mobile applications are currently available for download via the App Store and Google Play.

Warsaw, Poland April 16, 2018

AirChain Network is pleased to announce the official launch of their mobile application via the App Store and Google Play. The company reveals that the beta version of AirChain Network has also gone live recently. This blockchain powered ecosystem has been built by a team of experienced developers and blockchain experts with the intention of making the air freight sector more efficient by bringing transparency, safety, and flexibility.

The global air transportation industry is a huge sector that plays an important role in people’s lives as well as industries all over the world. However, the constant increase in fuel price in the recent years has led to a situation where the air cargo is often beyond the financial capacity of an average individual, business or enterprise. At present, many companies are also reconsidering the use of air freights because of the rapidly rising security issues. Making things worse, this industry has always lagged behind in terms of transparency and the adoption of innovative technologies.

AirChain Network has built a simple yet comprehensive ecosystem that provides access to the sophisticated tools and techniques of the freight industry without the stress and price. They are creating business opportunities for the investors by providing them free and direct access to a huge range of offers that were previously available only to the institutional investors. The goal of the network is to help the business and logistic companies deliver goods and services efficiently, while the use of blockchain technology removes duplication, ensures distribution and enforces transparency. The investors and businesses using AirChain Network are able to exchange goods and services for fiat or cryptocurrency in a transparent, tamper proof and immutable distributed ledger.

“Let us assume that Tom is flying from Berlin to Seoul and has 5kg of portable luggage available. Maria, living and working in Berlin, wants to send her friend in Seoul a 5kg gift parcel. If Maria sends her parcel by conventional means of transport, the cost will be quite high and the waiting time will be long. AirChain ecosystem allows Maria and Tom to meet and exchange their needs,” explains a senior spokesperson from AirChain Network.  “Maria’s package arrives at his friend’s place for the best cost, safely and quickly. Tom, on the other hand, earns an income without any effort due to the sale of his empty baggage.”

The use of the just launched mobile application from AirChain Network involves the following simple steps.

  • Choose location: Customer selects the arrival and departure of the package.
  • Start a conversation: After selecting the most appropriate traveler, the customers can start a conversation and finalize the deal.
  • Check the package: Traveler receives the package and starts the trip
  • Delivery of the package: The customer receives the package.

Using this mobile application, it is possible to track the parcels, goods and services sent over the network. The users will also be able to add friends, family and others and easily send and receive coins from people on the friend list. The app’s encrypted chat function allows the users to chat with their contacts.  There is also a 100% secure wallet to wallet chat function. The review history of all users can be seen, helping them build credibility on the ecosystem.

The ANK token is the proprietary utility token of AirChain Network that allows the community members to send parcels on the ecosystem and make more income. Using the ANK token, it is possible to pay for parcels fee and exchange parcels and income on a peer to peer level without intermediary or regulatory fees. Before a contract, the sender and receiver are required to go through a KYC/AML process conducted by a reputable third party.  Once the order is accepted, smart contact for both sides is executed by the ANK application and committed by the ANK token. The senders receive the ANK tokens in their wallet after the recipients receive their package and confirm the same.

About AirChain Network: AirChain Network is a designed especially for the air freight sector. Its blockchain powered ecosystem addresses the most critical problems of the industry such as transparency, safety, and flexibility. AirChain Network has recently introduced their mobile application in two different versions for the Android and iOS versions.

Kali Digital petitions HC against RBI’s crypto ban on banks

Ahmedabad-based crypto firm Kali Digital Eco Systems, which runs a cryptocurrency exchange platform named CoinRecoil, has approached the Delhi High Court filing a petition against the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) recent guidelines which have banned banks from dealing with Indian cryptocurrency purchase/exchanges.

In the first week of this month, the RBI had released a statement directing all regulated entities, including banks, e-wallets, and payment gateway providers, to stop dealing with individuals and businesses in the partially banned cryptocurrencies.

The crypto firm states that the central bank guideline violates Articles 19 (1) (g) and 14 of the Constitution. Under Article 19(1) (g) of the Constitution, citizens enjoy the right to carry on any occupation, trade or business, while Article 14 prohibits discrimination between equals and Article 14 relating ‘Equality Before Law’ states that the State shall not deny any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India, prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.

While the respondents, in this case, are RBI, the Indian government and the GST Council, the next hearing is on May 24, 2018. The writ petition states, “On account of the impugned circular, the petitioner will not be able to avail banking services to operate the cryptocurrency exchange ‘CoinRecoil’. Such banking services are imperative for the business of the petitioner. Consequently, the business is stillborn,”

Mohit Singh, CEO of Ovakil.com, which acts as a legal advisor to many cryptocurrency players, said, “With this RBI restriction on banks to transact with cryptocurrency traders and exchanges, Article 301 of Indian Constitution also gets violated,”

According to Article 301, the freedom of trade and commerce is guaranteed throughout India. Singh said that in order to prevent banks from dealing with cryptocurrencies the government needs to ban the entity first, without which such a move from the central bank could be running in contravention to the law.

With this recent clampdown by the RBI, the cryptocurrency exchange platform within the country have been seeing really tough times as to if they should even keep their business continued or move overseas. With this petition filed against RBI, tables can turn and cryptocurrency purchases may be authenticated again via banks.

Bitcoin ‘Bubble’ May Be Around for A While

Earlier, Shiller had completely denounced the cryptocurrency market and said that bitcoin was the best example of bubble happening currently.

Talking to CNBC, the economist who correctly predicted the housing crisis in the US suggested that cryptocurrency was more a psychological experiment than an instrument of serious investment.

“I’m interested in bitcoin as a sort of ‘bubble.’ It doesn’t mean that it will disappear, that it’ll burst forever. It may be with us for a while,” Shiller, professor of economics at Yale University, said on Thursday.

“To me, it’s interesting as another example of faddish human behaviour. It’s glamorous,” he added.

Earlier, Shiller had completely denounced the cryptocurrency market and said that bitcoin was the best example of bubble happening currently.

“The best example right now is bitcoin. And I think that has to do with the motivating quality of the bitcoin story. And I’ve seen it in my students at Yale. You start talking about bitcoin and they’re excited! And I think, what’s so exciting? You have to think like humanities people. What is this bitcoin story?” he had said in September last year.

The writer of best-selling book Irrational Exuberance on market manias around the world then had said that bitcoin bubble will burst very much like the Tulip mania of the 17th century.

Tulip mania was the first recorded speculative bubble of the world when rates of Tulip bulbs in the Netherlands had climbed to astronomical heights only to collapse in a couple of months.

In last five days, the price of this has surged by over $1,000. At the time of writing this piece, it was trading at $8,018.45 with market cap standing at over $136 billion.

According to him, there is a “part” of the cryptocurrency “fad” or “bubble” that is political, as people that don’t trust their governments may be tempted to invest.

In September of last year, he went on CNBC’s Fast Money with Brian Kelly to speak along the same lines about crypto, saying that “it’s the quality of the story that’s attracting all this interest.”

On Friday, April 13 Brian Kelly said in an interview that he supports investor Tim Draper’s prediction that Bitcoin’s price could hit $250,000 by 2022

Alibaba Subsidiary Taobao Bans few Cryptocurrency and ICO Services

Taobao previously had a ban on the sale of Cryptocurrency Miners and offering Mining Tutorials. In addition to that, they have now banned any product or service that makes use of the Blockchain. The new rule prohibits Cryptocurrency related services which include ICO Consultancy, White Paper Writing Services, smart contract deployment services and other crypto related technical services. This also prohibits the sale of blockchain based virtual assets like CryptoKitties and their numerous clones. These new rules will be valid from April 17th.

Taobao has cited recent bans from People’s Bank of China behind the crackdown. In September last year, PBoC banned all ICOs and early this year, they banned Cryptocurrencies itself. Though there is no ban on mining yet, most miners are looking to move their services outside the country.

Taobao considers breaking these new rules as serious violations and has a penalty system in place to penalize those who fail to follow. After PBoC banned ICOs last year, most of the advertisers have been able to circumvent this ban by changing the spellings. For example, they write ICO as IC0 where they change the ‘O’ to ‘0’(zero).

Though China has been extremely hostile towards Cryptocurrencies, most of the traders are optimistic about a change in stance in the coming months. In fact, PBoC’s new head Yi Gang said “Bitcoin is a currency that provides freedom to anyone that uses it,” and emphasized that the cryptocurrency is transparent.

Though Taobao has banned all Blockchain related services, there is no ban on Blockchain in China. In fact, the Chinese government has been extremely optimistic of Blockchain technology. A $1 Billion Blockchain fund was just launched which is backed by the government to invest in Blockchain startups. Also, PBoC filed the most number of Blockchain patents in 2017.

A considerable punishment will be imposed on the stores that violate the new regulations by turning a blind eye to them, said the statement.

In September 2017, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) imposed an indefinite ban on ICOs.

Surprisingly, a large chunk of individual sellers remained active on the Taobao platform with services related to ICOs even after PBoC’s ban. Some of these went to the extent of drawing up ‘white papers’ with fake information to help ICO projects.

As of today, searching for the term ‘white papers’ in Mandarin still redirects to stores that offer white paper copywriting services for the banned ICO activities
