A new PwC report is in the latest cryptocurrency news, showing that the interest in crypto fundraising is greater and greater as we speak. The majority of fundraising and M&A deals in the cryptocurrency industry are now happening in Asia and Europe – a statistic which shows that these markets are more dominant that the Americas which were seen as leaders before this.
Released on Thursday and going viral on many best cryptocurrency news sites, the PwC report shows a detailed analysis of the cryptocurrency ecosystem. It also found that even 41% of the global fundraising deals in Q2 of 2019 took place in Europe. As it stands, Europe saw 34% of the global fundraising deals in the same period last year.
Similar to this, the cryptocurrency fundraisers in Asia have grown a lot and now account for 26% of the deals in Q2 of 2019. So, when we see these numbers combined, we can see that the two regions account for 67% of the action in Q2 of 2019.
Meanwhile, the PwC report also identified a significant drop in the crypto fundraising deals in the Americas. Even though the Americas accounted for 51% of global deals in Q2 2018, their share went down to just 28% in the Q2 of this year.
On a global scale, the total number of fundraising deals and the amount of capital involved have both declined by more than 50% from a high of $408 million in Q1 of 2019. That being said, it is clear to see that the declines in the recent Bitcoin and altcoin news account for a lot of the action.
Given Bitcoin’s recent price rebound, the report indicates that there has been an uptick in the value of global deals, growing to $250 million in Q2 2019 from $166 million in Q1. The senior manager of PwC’s fintech and crypto arm, Lucy Gazmararian, commented on the PwC report and said:
“The price of bitcoin is the bellwether for the industry and for the sentiment of investors. As the price of bitcoin has recovered, we see the sentiment has become more positive and have seen more activities in fundraising and M&A activities.”
The report also added that the firm observed a similar trend in the realm of mergers and acquisitions, for which the US market dominance has decreased from over 80% in the first half of 2018 to 48% in Q2 of 2019.

Decentraland ICO Crypto Finally Opens After Three Years
“The users are in control of the digital assets, which is something that hasn’t happened before. I think that over time players will gravitate toward games where they are more in control.”As per the other Decentraland news, HTC announcing that the altcoin MANA will be their strategic partner, MANA spiked almost two times against the US dollar. For those of you who are asking themselves why these unique crypto assets are part of HTC and Samsung’s plans, the truth is that both smartphone manufacturers believe that their potential exceeds the realm of payments and goes above and beyond the popularized cryptocurrencies in the likes of Ripple, EOS, Litecoin, Stellar and TRON.
0x Developers Launch Liquidity Aggregation Tool: Report
“There are tons of projects that use the liquidity from individual DEX networks, but the liquidity isn’t connected. Our goal is to provide the best price for any token trading pair on the market...it’s pretty much guaranteed with 0x API because we’re just pulling from networks that have the best prices.”For example, while 0x is quite liquid when it comes to popular trading pairs such as DAI and ETH or USDC to DAI, he says that there’s a lack of liquidity on other coins such as Augur that could be more liquid on another network. 0x wants to solve this problem by creating an order that will be split between all DEX networks and returning back the best price there is. With only a few code lines, the 0x developers can now connect to the API and get a quote in the back end so they will be able to execute the transaction at the best prices. Taylor continued:
“We want to be the most liquid decentralized exchange, but we also want to provide developers the best price. If that’s not on 0x native liquidity, we’re happy to give them on Kyber, for example, because that’s a better developer experience. ‘’0x API does not have a bridge with dYdX which is a margin lending exchange that started sourcing liquidity from 0x in 2019. The platform has a closed pool as Matt explained so while the maker that uses 0x API could potentially make an order on the margin trade on dydx, there is not a single possibility on the taker side to fill dydx trades via 0x API.
