FO6E3842CAC44 - DeFi Improved Ethereum dApps Despite Bear Market

It seems like decentralized finance dApps are experiencing “huge growth” as we speak, according to a new report. The DeFi improved Ethereum’s dApps and the ETH news show that the blockchain powered services are leading the way in the market.

According to a Dapp.com report now shared on many news sites, in Q3 of this year “more than $525 million (USD) was performed by finance services dapps (decentralized apps).” The report also shows that 27.6% of all dApp users began using decentralized apps so they could access financial service offerings.

Meanwhile, the ETH-based DeFi improved Ethereum’s dApps which account for the vast bulk of the figure – and today make up even 88% of the total volume in the finance sector category. This report is featured in the blockchain news today and according to DeFi Pulse, the Ethereum-based lending service Maker (MKR) is still something of a monolith in the DeFi scene and has a dominance rate of almost 51%.

The Dapp.com data also shows that Ethereum-powered DeFi apps picked up 310,000 new users in Q3 which is the largest quarter-on-quarter growth rate to date.

“Most of the active Ethereum dapp users in Q2 didn’t use any ETH dapps in Q3 – there are only slightly more than 80,000 ETH holders used dapps in both Q2 and Q3. But the wave of DeFi has given the best growth for Ethereum dapp users,” according to the report.

The figures also show that the Ethereum blockchain still has the largest amount of dApps, with more than 1,721 out of a grand total of 2,791. EOS and Tron followed behind with 466 and 467, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Ethereum latest news also show that gambling and gaming dApps remain favorites – and there are 439 out of all 1,350 active dApps and 44 out of 148 new dApps devoted to betting and other forms of gambling. It seems like DeFi improved Ethereum apps a lot over the past years.

Even though the user activeness is down from Q2 at more than 30% in losses, a whopping 58% of the Ethereum dApp transactions in Q3 were actually DeFi and finance-related, making up for the total volume of over $466 million in USD.

The report also examined data from dApps built on the aforementioned platforms as well as platforms like Steem, TomoChain and IOST. The authors stated that they discounted data from dApps which appeared fraudulent, had security issues or featured sensitive contents.

Privacy-Focused Zcash Demands Access To Ethereum’s DeFi Ecosystem

privacy-focused zcash
Privacy-focused Zcash is looking to find access to Ethereum’s decentralized finance ecosystem as we are about to find out more in the latest news on altcoin.As reported just a day ago, the topic of interoperability was the key point of the now concluded Devcon 5 developer conference in Osaka, Japan. At this conference, many of the smaller crypto projects such as the privacy-focused Zcash but also many other smaller projects showed their interest into the Ethereum’s decentralized finance ecosystem. The co-founder of Summa, James Prestwich, stated:
 “Connecting to other chains doesn’t seem to be an Ethereum developer’s priority, but other chains seem to want to connect to Ethereum.”
The developers all over the world have been working on interoperability solutions just so they can enable different networks and to be able to interact more efficiently in an attempt to eradicate the existing issues in regard to scalability and speed. Related to this matter, the VP of marketing and business development at Electric Coin Company Josh Swihart, explained that the Zcash community will develop a wrapped ZEC token that can be used on the Ethereum blockchain network by saying:
 “If you want to do lending, if you want to do DAOs [decentralized autonomous organizations], all of that stuff could be done with Zcash as well … Ultimately, we want Zcash shielded [addresses] to be usable in Ethereum smart contracts.”
The ZCash Foundation board member Ian Miers explained the issue of why decentralized app creators might want to protect their addresses and smart contracts. However, as previously reported in the blockchain news, the South Korean cryptocurrency exchange UpBit stopped the trading support for six cryptocurrencies including Zcash. The exchange decided to delist these six privacy coins in order to block the possibility of money laundering and the influx of external networks. Also, a few days ago, the OKEx crypto exchange confirmed that they will also stop the trading of Zcash and other privacy-oriented digital assets. the exchange made clear that all of the coins fall short on the new guidelines that were set out by the intergovernmental body which is the Financial Action Taskforce.

Ethereum Price Forecasts: ETH Holding Strong Support At $185

ethereum price forecasts
Ethereum price forecasts show that the over the past week, ETH started a strong rise above the $175 resistance against the US dollar as we saw in the ethereum news before. Moreover, the pair managed to break above the key resistance at $18 resistance area and settled above the 100 simple moving average.This action opened the doors for more gains above the $190 resistance. The price traded close to the $200 level and a new monthly high is forming near the $198 level. There was even a sharp decline in Etheruem and the price traded below the $185 support area and there was even a break below the 50 percent Fib retracement level of the last major wave from the $167 low to $198 high and there was even a break below the major bullish trend line with a support near $188 on the 4-hour chart of ETH/USD.Currently, the Ethereum price forecasts show that ETH is consolidating near the $180 support area and the 100 SMA and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last huge wave from the $168 low to the $198 high is also protecting further losses. If there is another downside break below the $180 support there are a lot of chances of an extended decline towards the $175 area in the near term. On the upside, the immediate resistance is near the $185 area and if there is another successful break above the $185 resistance, there is some chance of a fresh increase. The next resistance is near the $190 level above which the price could continue to increase towards the main $200 resistance area. The charts in the latest altcoin news indicate that the Ethereum price is having a hard time to remain in an uptrend above the $180 support area and in the short term, there could be a huge downside spike towards the $175 support area. As long as the price is above the $175 support, the price could bounce back.In the near-term, Ethereum has found support around the current price although the key long-term support level remains around $160 while looking at the monthly charts since it is where it has found a lot of buying pressure that has been proceeded by the uptrends. The popular crypto analyst on Twitter Mayne explained that he looks at a $175 price range for Etheruem in the near-term and $8,150 for Bitcoin.

Crypto Markets Trade Sideways After TON Rejection By The SEC

crypto markets trade
The latest crypto news show that the markets are in an unstable position following the Telegram Open Network (TON) and its rejection by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The crypto markets trade sideways and seem to be held by a negative pressure that is constant over the past couple of days.At press time, even 8 out of the 20 cryptocurrencies are seeing gains. The Binance Coin news indicate that BNB is surging by nearly 2.8% and Chainlink (LINK) is seeing the biggest losses in the top 20 - dropping by more than 6.1%. As the crypto markets trade sideways, Bitcoin is also taking a hit. Even though BTC is stable in its safe zone around $8,300, the momentum is red and the cryptocurrency managed to lose some of its value.This is maybe the fourth day of literally no bigger action on the markets. After hitting $8,800 on October 11, BTC has been hovering around the $8,300 threshold for some time now. At press time, the Bitcoin price news show that the leading cryptocurrency is down by around 0.4% on the day. On a seven day period, Bitcoin is still up by around 2.8% which is a good sign for its market share rate which has also been relatively stable.The fact that the crypto markets trade sideways has many Bitcoin bulls predicting that the upcoming Bitcoin block reward halving in May 2020 will be the most crucial event for the cryptocurrency - possibly leading to all-tie highs and breaking prices. According to the CEO at the Chinese mining giant Bitmain, the BTC halving may not lead to a bull market.On October 8, we saw the American asset manager VanEck publishing its research and providing a number of reasons why Bitcoin improves its investment portfolio upside, emphasizing the coin's unique monetary value, scarcity and independence from the traditional markets.The ETH news feature Ethereum and its possibility to soon drop to new levels and that the pressure on the cryptocurrency is big. As a leading altcoin, ETH is down by 1.6% on the day and is trading at $182. The developments in the company recently introduced by its co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, are the only proof that the cryptocurrency could soon recover and reach new yearly highs.

Analysts Expect Ethereum’s Price To Drop Towards $170

Published

analysts expect
Analysts expect that Ethereum’s price will drop towards the $170 price level despite the recently incurred upwards momentum which happened after Bitcoin and the rest of the crypto market felt a slight resistance overnight. The new price trends sparked a short-term downtrend as we are about to see in the Ethereum news today.A lot of the analysts expect Ethereum's price may soon target even lower lows which could mean that the recent uptrend was only a flash in the pan that precedes the next major path down for ETH and other major altcoins. Ethereum is trading down by about 2 percent at its current price of $186 which marks a notable drop from the previous high of more than $195 that was set during a massive upwards movement that happened overnight. It appears that the mid-to-upper $190 region is a strong resistance level for ETH and the overnight drop happened right when Bitcoin surged to highs of more than $9,000 before starting a massive influx of selling pressure that sent it shooting lower.In the near-term, Ethereum has found support around the current price although the key long-term support level remains around $160 while looking at the monthly charts since it is where it has found a lot of buying pressure that has been proceeded by the uptrends. The popular crypto analyst on Twitter Mayne explained that he looks at a $175 price range for Etheruem in the near-term and $8,150 for Bitcoin:
 “Retest of $175 $ETH and $8150 $BTC IMO.’’
Another crypto analyst- The Cryptomist, also explained on Twitter that the $183 is a key-near short term support level that most of the bulls will defend and there is a drop below this level potentially sparking a lot of capitulation that quickly sends it to $174:
 “$ETH It is important for the price to sustain a successful re-test of this ascending triangle breakout at the price of $183. Should it fail to do so $174 may very well be next.’’
As per the latest crypto news, the next few days will likely be very indicative when it comes to how most of the altcoins like Ethereum will continue their trends and seemingly will take guidance from Bitcoin.
