3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ​​Highlights on the predictions for DeFi in 2020 on: December 30, 2019, 08:13:52 PM
1. Total Value Locked in DeFi will continue to raise and might reach X billion mark.
▪️"We'll see significant growth over the next year, both in terms of value locked in the DeFi smart contracts and user base" by DeFiprime
▪️"Total value locked up in Ethereum DeFi will surpass 1 billion dollars in 2020" by Outlier Ventures
▪️"Value locked in DeFi hits $5B" by Blockchain Capital
▪️"The DeFi sector will continue to grow. The amount of funds locked in DeFi will double at least" by CryptoRank

2. Significant competition to Ethereum will arise.
▪️"More cross-chain DeFi projects and at least 2 major public chains other than ETH will establish a noticeable DeFi eco, competing with ETH" by Ryan Tian
▪️"Ethereum still will be the #1 platform for DeFi projects. We'll see fully functional and trustless bridges from BTC to the ETH-based DeFi ecosystem.  We'll see 10x attempts to build the DeFi ecosystem from scratch, both on old semi-dead blockchains from the past, and on newish VC founded" by DeFiprime

3. Interoperability will arrive in 2020
▪️"Interoperability will arrive in 2020" by Roy Learner
▪️"We'll see significant progress with blockchains interoperability and the adoption of DEXes with assets swaps between more than one blockchain" by DeFiprime

4. We might see the fall of at least one DeFi project either because of regulations or volatility of the market and systematic risks of the collateral.
▪️"We'll see at least one project being slapped by regulators. It'll force other projects to switch from the team ruled somewhat-DeFi/CeFi to non-custodial/DAO-governed." by DeFiprime
▪️"There will be at least one major collapse of the current well-known project due to the volatility of the market and systematic risks of the collateral." by Ryan Tian

5. The amount of BTC locked in DeFi will significantly raise and might even outperform ETH
▪️"BTC will eclipse ETH as the primary value locked in DeFi" by Roy Learner
▪️"Don't bet against Bitcoin, and try to pull its value into DeFi machines" by Lex Substack

Any additional thoughts?

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ​​TOP 15 Blockchains platforms by daily active addresses (December and November) on: December 30, 2019, 08:10:31 PM

One of the ways to measure the month to month usage of the blockchain platform is to check the amount of average daily active addresses.

"Active addresses are unique addresses that were active in the network (either as a recipient or originator of a ledger change) that day. All parties in a ledger change action (recipients and originators) are counted. Individual addresses are not double-counted if previously active."

According to the infographic, Bitcoin remains to be the leader. ETC came back to the second spot followed by Ethereum. Digibyte lost 11 positions this month and the average of daily active addresses is down by 98%. The activity of Digibyte addresses stabilized after the sudden surge in November.

This month, Tezos has entered the list, Tezos took 14th spot with average of 5957 active addresses in December and outperformed Ripple and Cardano (Cardano took 16th position and are not represented on the infographic)

Overall, we can see that 9 out of 15 analyzed platforms have experienced a decrease in the amount of daily active addresses in December.
Top gainers are Stellar (27%) and Ethereum Classic (20%). Top losers are DBG (-98%), Ripple (-33%), and Tron (-27.5%).

8  Economy / Speculation / Is Bitcoin now Pump and Dump? on: December 16, 2019, 08:56:55 PM

I have watched this space for a couple of years and while on it, I felt that bitcoin prices are usually driven by global supply and demand which is a factor of real world usage. But recently, I have also gotten another perspective that bitcoin might just be a tool in the hands of a few whales, manipulated for quick and short gains on daily bases. If that's the case, as we near $6500/btc and even lesser as analysts suggest, when then do we see $100k/btc or its just a hoax to keep the pump and dump pendulum swinging
