If you are following our digital currency news section, you have probably read the news about the scheduled hard fork of the altcoin Bitcoin Cash (BCH) which is expected to happen soon. In the latest news, we have the crypto exchange Poloniex which will supposedly make the most of this hard fork – with an offer that will happen for the first time.
According to the announcement by the exchange, there will be trading for the pending Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork – in the form of buying Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHABS) and Bitcoin Cash SV (BCHSV) trading tokens.
For the first time ever, an exchange is offering trading pairs for a crypto asset prior to a possible fork. According to the company, the move is part of a wider strategy that will increase the company’s reputation and customer experience.
As the official blog post reads:
“We’re doing this to empower customers to demonstrate their support for one coin over the other through trading activity. Poloniex will also support trading markets for both tokens after the hard fork.”
Pre-fork trading has been made available forUSDC/BCHSV and USDC/BCHABC as well as bitcoin trading pairs. Also, customers will be able to convert their BCH into an equivalent amount of BCHABC and BCHSV and vice versa if they wish to withdraw – but they won’t be able to withdraw BCHABC and BCHSV ahead of the fork.
The fork is scheduled for November 15th.
Bitcoin Is Close To $4,100 As Tokens Gain 20%
"In my opinion, blockchain and crypto-related investment opportunities will be one of the fastest growing sectors in the alternative asset management space in the next 10 years. This means that every alternative asset manager will have to create a strategy to help their LPs gain exposure to the nascent industry," Pompliano said.Aside from the greens recorded in the top 20 cryptocurrencies, the best performers on the day include the names of Ontology, Ravencoin, Tezos, Huobi Token, and KuCoin Shares - all recording gains from 12% to 25% on the day.
Analyst: 90% Of Smaller Crypto Projects Will Result In Complete Loss
“No matter how these small projects are financed (via an ICO, premine, fair launch, dev reward, self-funded etc.), they are essentially young startups in a completely unproven technological field. Such startups are known to have an extremely high failure rate of about 90%,” the analyst explained.The "Wolf of Qtrade.io" also said that only Bitcoin, Ethereum and Monero are the coins that have "traction" and ones that should make up core crypto exposure.
"There’s no denying that there’s a realistic chance that somewhere in the 10% of the projects that survive lies a gem that ends up providing a 10x, 100x, or even 1000x return on investment," he said.Overall, his thoughts are very much in line with the other traders in the crypto community which now recommend investing only in the cryptocurrencies one can afford to lose and building the portfolio around high-cap coins such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Mayor Of Chicago: Cryptocurrency Will Save Countries From Financial Crises
“The trend lines are affirmative for its future. I don’t know if that’s ten years, and I don’t know if that’s 20 years, but it’s affirmative. I don’t know what it is. I know it’s an alternative way to trade, and therefore, I gotta learn about it, and I gotta be honest, as mayor, it’s not the top 100 things I would have to learn about.”Emmanuel also noted that the nation states are falling apart while the "city states are emerging." This is why Chicago and other major cities have their own wage laws, some of them even have their own income taxes and many other different regulations. In times when countries like Iran and Venezuela are facing financial embargoes, cryptocurrency can be a possible way to maintain global transactions, according to Emanuel.
"Nation states are falling apart, or receding. City states are emerging, so the political structures we all grew up under are changing. One day, somebody's going to figure out - whether that's Argentina, ten years from now, five years from now - how to use cryptocurrencies to stay alive when their facing a financial crisis, and then you're going to find out that this moment has arrived," he confidently said.To sum things up, Emanuel said that he believes that "an alternative way of currency dealing with the debt markets is going to happen" at some point in the future.
The trend lines are affirmative for its future. I don't know if that's ten years, and I don't know if that's 20 years, but it's affirmative. I don't know what it is. I know it's an alternative way to trade, and therefore, I gotta learn about it, and I gotta be honest, as mayor, it's not the top 100 things I would have to learn about," Emanuel concluded.
