ICO Ratings on ICOformula - Movers and Shakers of Week 26
A healthy weekend by all accounts for the cryptocurrency markets. The global cryptocurrency market cap up by $20 billion from Friday to $256 billion, Bitcoin now at $6337, up by $408 and Ethereum also making gains, up $33 to $450.
Gains seen over the weekend appear to be in spite of yet more mainstream media FUD from the UK “newspaper” the Independent running an article headlined “Bitcoin has fallen to its lowest point since November and will probably be totally wiped out”. The article itself is credited as having been written by someone called “Hamish McRae” yet reads almost as though it’s been automatically generated with one of the better content writing platforms available to news publishers – as opposed to someone with actual knowledge of the industry. Of course the Independent appear to be quite happy to run ads for cryptocurrencies and so on – one would think they would refrain from continuing to fuel baseless rumours and produce useful and perhaps even informative content for their readers.
A state run think-tank in India is planning a research project exploring the possibilities of using blockchain to handle fertilizer subsidy payments to farmers across the country. Under the proposal the National Institute of Transforming India (NITI) has initially signed an agreement with Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited (GNFC) to streamline subsidy payments to farmers to eliminate the need for documents and multiple authorisation points. The Reserve Bank of India is still yet to sort out their regulation of cryptocurrencies generally, so whilst it’s great to see new projects and adoption of blockchain and distributed ledger technology generally, the Indian central bank perhaps should review its regulatory stance before it paints itself too much further into a corner as it were.
