Western Union is about to introduce cryptocurrency transfer services. Read more in the analytical report
Key market events in December 17-23, 2018
  1. According to the Blockchain Transparency Institute, most exchanges lie about their transaction volumes. The real figure is close to 1% of the number displayed on the CoinMarketCap. Bitfinex and Binance are exceptions, though, of course, many have doubts about Binance.
2.Bloomberg gained access to the financial documentation of Tether Limited, which issues the USDT stablebcoin, and confirmed that almost a year ago, on January 31, 2018, all the coins issued by the company were secured by $2.2 billion.
  1. Payment giant Western Union is about to introduce cryptocurrency transfer services right after the tests are done. However, according to the president of the division of the Global Money Transfer payment system Odilon Almeida, so far the cryptocurrency has not gained wide traction, since it needs to be controlled by the authorities and reduce volatility.
  2. The Reddit user under the nickname sotashi urged Bitcoin owners UTC to withdraw their funds from all exchanges on January 3 at 16:00 to celebrate the decade of Genesis Block, and at the same time to check how many bitcoins are in circulation now and whether all exchanges are truly decentralized.
  3. The Coincheck cryptocurrency exchange, which lost more than $500 million to the hacker attack in January 2018, received an operating license from the Financial Services Agency of Japan after improving service, increasing security and introducing anti-money laundering measures.
  4. An accounting company Grant Thornton LLP conducted a second audit of stablecoin USD Coin (USDC) by Circle and Coinbase, which confirmed it was secured by fiat currency. By the end of November 2018, 177,190,279 USDC were released, and $180,192,792. 7 more remained in the reserves of issuing companies.
  5. Bitcoin network complexity dropped by 10% as the coin value grew, and the miners started earning more on mining this first cryptocurrency.
  6. Coinbase, the largest US exchange, confirmed that it was transferring almost $5 billion in cryptocurrency to a new repository for the cryptoassets of its clients. The total transfer amount included 5% of company’s Bitcoin reserves, 8% of Ethereum stash and 25% of Litecoin.
  7. The analytical company McAfee Labs published a report, which says the number of virus software for hidden mining increased by 4467% in 2018. IoT devices are the main attack vector.
10.Facebook began the development of a stablecoin secured by US dollar for WhatsApp users. The coin would be launched in India, where the messenger has about 200 million active users.
  1. ConsenSys aims to close its startup incubator, which included 36 projects. The company explained that all these startups have not created cost-effective products and are not ready to join the new ConsenSys. Therefore, the number of ConsenSys employees can be reduced by 60%.
  2. The Israeli firm GMT, which has 250 branches and cooperates with MoneyGram, American Express and other financial companies, has joined the RippleNet network.
  3. Wong Ching, a 24-year-old Bitcoin millionaire, decided to raise awareness about the crypto industry in a rather peculiar way - he dropped 100 million Hong Kong dollars (about $12.8 million) from the roof of a high-rise building.
Market analytics from club experts for December 17 - 23, 2018
Surprisingly enough, the last week turned out to be rather joyful and full of festive mood. The price of BTC and altcoins started to grow. The total market capitalization climbed from $103 billion in the beginning of the week to $133 billion.
Trading volumes also showed a good growth - on average roughly $17 billion. The BTC kept dominating the market at 53-54%, falling to 49% only by December 20, when there was a massive increase in altcoin price.
The BTC price climbed from $3276 to $4009 over the week, peaking at $4144.
This week witnessed the historical maximum of BTC trade volume - 2.27 million BTC or $9 billion. The last record was set on December 7, 2017, with almost 2 million BTC.
Moreover, the drop of recent corrections during the weekend was followed by good purchasing volumes.
There are reasons to assume that the buyers have accumulated enough funds and strength, and the reporting periods, together with the u, keep pointing out that the trend is about to change - if not globally, then at least locally. We expect quite a few landmark events in 2019 - the launch of Bakkt is just one of them. The train is about to leave, so hop on!
Changes in the cost and capitalization of the TOP-10 cryptocurrencies in the period for December 17-23, 2018:
4. TOP-3 growing coins from the long-term portfolio for December 17-23, 2018 (including portfolio updates)

Here on our Cryptoindex blog, we will be posting 100 articles about each of the top performing coins selected by our powerful AI algorithm#CIX100coinreview.
Today’s review: Monero
What is Monero?
This name cryptocurrency has received from the word "coin" in the language of Esperanto. Cryptocurrency appeared on April 18, 2014, as Bytecoin fork (not Bitcoin). The release of the coin caused increased interest from the crypto community after announcing by the developers the Roadmap and the Whitepaper. The essence of the project was to make the cryptocurrency anonymous.
But on the other hand, the creation of such cryptocurrency attracted the attention of law enforcement agencies, including Europol. As an argument that was brought to the attention of developers, it was that Monero could become a good means of payment on the black market for drugs trade.
The FBI also speaks with the same statement, pointing out that Monero is in the TOP of the crypto-currency on the black market:
  1. Bitcoin
  2. Litecoin
  3. Monero.
The level of Monero anonymity is sometimes questioned, in particular, Edward Snowden called it "amateur cryptocurrency."
At the time of writing, Monero is ranked 11th by the capitalization in
How does it work?
Monero is mostly an open source software that uses the principle of proof-of-work. But unlike Bitcoin, Monero emission is not limited. That's why the developers did it so that the miners would ensure the system's operation even after the emission was completed.
The developers of Monero have made a lot of efforts to make their cryptocurrency secure. To achieve a high result, special measures were taken:
  • Use of "Annular signatures". This technology allows you to "shuffle" all the public keys, thus eliminating the possibility of identifying any of the participants in the system.
  • Monero uses a unique protocol that creates one-time addresses. This allows you to hide information about the payee, the balance of his account and so on.
  • Protection against hacking. Cryptographic algorithms ensure the security of electronic cash stored in user wallets.
Due to CryptoNote and the obfuscation added to the protocol, passive mixing is provided: all transactions in the system are anonymous, and all participants in the system can use plausible negation in the event if they are being captured.
Dirty Monero?
Among the miners, it’s in high demand, due to anonymity for mining on other people's computers and servers. Recently, there have been more cases when Monero was noticed in the code of many viruses. The power of many computers around the world is used to extract this particular cryptocurrency, in particular, this happened last year in London, where scammers used the hacked government servers for mining.
Also Monero, right along with Bitcoin, Zcash and Dash is the most used cryptocurrency in Darknet. A particularly favored method of money laundering is the so-called "mixer". The principle of its work is that the money received illegally is sent to the exchange where Bitcoin coins are purchased, for which the Monero tokens are then purchased and then the attacker can safely transfer to any stock exchange, to a pre-established account and receive money in any form convenient for him.
Advantages of Monero
  • Absolute decentralization. Without any control, including financial organizations (banks and etc);
  • The anonymity of transactions;
  • Constant growth and trust;
  • The presence of his own personal wallet.
Disadvantages of Monero
  • The size of one transaction in Monero is more significant than in Bitcoin;
  • The anonymity of transactions began to challenge experts working on the development of other cryptocurrencies.
Now the developers are actively working to promote the currency. Given the high anonymity and growth in demand, success is entirely assured. The anonymity of Monero transactions is not absolute. If the attacker controls a large part of the network, then under certain circumstances, he can deanonymize some of the transactions.
At the time this article was published, Monero [XMR] is 0.812% of the total of CryptoIndex portfolio. You can always check the current CIX100 composition at our MVP platform:

What is Elastos?
Elastos is the world’s first internet operating system that uses the internet as the base-layer infrastructure rather than an application. Elastos prohibits application programs from directly accessing the network in order to eliminate most viruses and attacks(especially DDoS attacks) on the internet. According to Elastos, network communication should be separated from application computing. Elastos is building a truly decentralized Smart Web powered by blockchain implementing P2P economic infrastructure while also providing digital asset ownership and management through smart contracts.
Brief Summary?
Bitcoin = Trustworthy Ledger
Ethereum = Trustworthy Ledger + Smart Contracts
Elastos = Trustworthy Ledger + Smart Contracts + Monetizable Dapps and Digital Assets
Development History(Tens of Millions of Open-Source Code spanning Decades)
In 2000, Rong Chen a Tsinghua alumni left Microsoft and returned to China to start his business.
In 2003, Rong Chen was received by Jin-Tao Hu, the former CPC General Secretary.
In 2013, Foxconn funded Elastos with 200 million RMB.
In 2017, Sunny Feng Han and Ji-Han Wu started running the Bitcoin Investment Elastos Blockchain Community and founded G3 with Bitmain and NEO.
In 2017, the Elastos Blockchain community received a global digital token investment worth 600 million RMB.
What is the Elastos Blockchain structure?
Elastos blockchain works as a trust zone for the entire network operating system that applies main and sidechain solutions to facilitate the smart economy and a healthy decentralized application environment. This means that every application built on Elastos can create individual sidechains that is thoroughly customizable, allowing clients to pick a different consensus method depending on the use case. The structure of main chain and side chain avoids main chain being overloaded and leads to easy routing and flexible extension, increasing the possibility for Elastos to be largely scalable.
Elastos implements merged mining with bitcoin. This strategy saves resources and avoids repeated consumption. Miner submits Proof-of-Work(PoW) to both bitcoin and elastos and enjoys profits of mining competition without extra consumption of computing power. The consensus mechanism for Elastos is AuxPoW+DPoS where the mining reward distribution is 35% for AuxPoW, 35% for DPoS, 20% for Ecosystem Application Reward and 10% for Foundation Running and Development. Tokens for apps built on Elastos can be published on sidechains. These tokens may participate in two-way asset transfer across the main chain and side chains.
What is the business model for Elastos?
Provide large blockchain applications with secure running environment
Digital content remains intact after multiple uses
Big data and digital content can identify ownership on blockchain and correspond to tokens
Tokens can be transferred and traded legally on blockchain, realizing future capital
Usage of tokens can consume/use digital content in Elastos Runtime.
Elastos can set a fixed limited amount for digital assets, thereby creating scarcity of valued products
Example of how the above works?
Content creators create 500 copies of limited edition games built on top of Elastos
Users buy these limited copies
They then play these games in Elastos Runtime on their cell phones, desktop computers, game consoles, etc.
Holders of these limited edition games then resell them to other people. Because this game is of limited edition, it fluctuates in the second-hand market. It helps users enjoy the digital content, earn the early benefits and earn some by reselling it, thereby transferring the ownership to other people.
Ethereum v Elastos?
Ethereum: Single mainchain structure leads to the upper limit of computing power and extensibility. Elastos: Proposes to adopt a flexible main chain and sidechain blockchain design structure. The main chain is only responsible for basic transactions and payments while the sidechain executes smart contracts to support various applications and services.
Ethereum: As storage and computing space, blockchain is not able to support user daily life scenarios and not able to support digital content(eg. Cryptokitties). Elastos runs applications on elastos runtime as opposed to the already congested blockchain. This method is more secure. All network data must be sent through a trustable and verifiable channel. Identification and authentication come from the blockchain ID. This way, the blockchain’s credibility can be transferred to Elastos Runtime. Elastos Runtime can have various forms: an independent OS, a virtual machine, or a software development kit(SDK) that integrates into native apps of other mainstream operating systems.
EOS v Elastos?
EOS: Is a blockchain OS, but its development period and open source codes are much shorter than Elastos’ 17 years. Elastos has released more than 4 million lines of code to github and plans to release 10+ million lines of code in total(contributing to the open source community).
EOS is dependent on its main-chain, so no matter how optimized it becomes, its throughput is limited. Elastos can extend the throughput infinitely with flexible main-chain and side-chain solution. Also, Elastos Runtime can deliver the trust function of the blockchain to a user’s application(like a cell phone, laptop, etc) which applies the blockchain to various scenarios in daily life.
EOS, through the adoption of the DPoS consensus mechanism, can realize high throughput rate. Elastos computation bandwidth is distributed according to the number of tokens held. It refers to the design philosophy of time sliced distribution in the traditional multi-task operating system and encourages the community to hold tokens. The main-chain design focuses on improving extensibility for smooth access to sidechain. The consensus mechanism on the sidechain can be anything(from DPoS to DBFT to anything else)
EOS runs everything utilizing main chain for everything. Elastos: Services on the elastos blockchain layer can be shared by multiple side chains. This greately lowers the mainchain pressure. When necessary, the sidechain can be duplicated to extend sidechain-level service capability through bifurcation mechanism, while the extension of this computing power can be infinite
Blockstack v Elastos?
Blockstack combines encrypted, distributed storage and blockchain ID to make sure all the data belongs to the owner. As for Elastos, it applies a similar method for digital assets storage where users could apply for an ID for their digital assets on the blockchain, which guarantees the ownership of those digital contents but a key differentiation with blockstack is that the ownership of these digital contents will also be transferable and tradable, thereby making these digital assets consumable and investable and of high value, thereby contributing to a smart economy of trading digital goods. Even though the digital assets are decrypted, they cannot escape elastos runtime operating environment which guarantees that it will never disclose or damage the ownership of the digital contents.
Blockstack saves encrypted data files in the cloud and hash stamps for these files are put on the blockchain as a proof mechanism but doing this is a trade-off between high credibility, low efficiency of blockchain and low credibility, high efficiency of traditional storage. Meanwhile, Elastos has its P2P network layer called Elastos Carrier that focuses on making the elastos blockchain cluster chain service integrated into the same network as the elastos runtime thereby unifying the services with DApps so both the data and the ID of digital assets can have high credibility along with high efficiency for blockchain storage.
For the tech savy?
Elastos VM: The VM runs on a host OS and has better integration with current mainstream OS such as Android and iOS. It ensures formation of a closed runtime environment enabling the separation from the host OS, ensuring safety of data and code. The ‘Remote Service Interface’ replaces the traditional TCP/IP programming model, providing safe and reliable network transactions. This means no more IP addresses and a discovery mechanism will be used instead to access dapps and websites on the elastos internet(where each item has its own UUID - Universal Unique Identifier).
Elastos Runtime: A software library that contains some of Elastos functionality. It provides the target OS applications with the needed Elastos functions, similar to the Alipay SDK serving other applications and making them capable of having payment functions. Elastos runtime can use trusted network communications and conduct safe and reliable data exchange and allows information exchange with the blockchain, confirming digital asset ownership and identity.
Elastos Browser: A specialized browser where the Elastos runtime is embedded. In this browser, web applications can run with partial Elastos functions. Using Elastos browser bridges the gap to provide JS programming...
