The decline that has hit the crypto sector is not set to last for long as the momentum of these assets will end. always by reversing this trend. However, the question that stirs the minds of investors: What cryptocurrencies to buy after the Krash? DeFi Coin attracts a lot of attention after its extraordinary jump (× 10 on the stock market). Should we bet on this crypto after the crash?
DeFi Coin’s results are interesting for a crypto that recently went public. Its current price is $ 1.17. Compared to its ICO price, DeFi Coin’s value has already increased tenfold. Not long ago, we had put it on our list of the five cryptos for less than a dollar to buy at all. price for the month of July. The DEFC met our expectations. At the time of writing, its price was $ 0.15.
A Uniswap competitor for DeFi tokens
DeFiCoin.io is working hard to launch its decentralized trading platform for DeFi tokens. DeFi Coin’s exchange was to have almost all of the same functionality as Uniswap but with just one differentiator: the charity wallet. The charity wallet is a wallet that the crypto intends to set up to raise funds to support charitable projects.
DeFiCoin.io plans to list nearly 300 DeFi tokens on its platform with the ambition of solving the problem of accessibility of DeFi tokens. Outside of the trading space, DeFiCoin.io has already launched DeFi Coin news, a newspaper devoted to current affairs in the world of decentralized finance. Although the journal has not been updated for a few days, this project still remains a serious support for investors.
Possibility of earning passive income with DEFC
Like Uniswap, DeFi Coin intends to set up liquidity pools on its network in order to better facilitate access to liquidity on its exchange. By providing liquidity in these pools, investors will be able to earn income on their crypto capital. These revenues will come from transaction fees on the platform as well as rewards from LP tokens.
It is worth remembering that DeFi Coins takes a 10% fee on DEFC transactions on its platform. 5% of its costs are redistributed to DEFC Holders and the 5% burned in the burnout process of the platform.
Resilience of cryptocurrency even during industry downturn
DEFC has had a pretty hectic journey in the market. The cryptocurrency has shown that it has the strength to maintain a certain level on the stock market despite the speculative waves. For nearly three days, the crypto has consolidated towards the $ 1. That’s why experts predict it would rise to around $ 2.20 in the not too distant horizon.
In reality, DEFC’s price is nowhere near its $ 3 ATH. A level that was sparked by the runaway crypto when it sold for $ 0.10. If DeFi Coin fails to rebound so quickly, it is largely due to the profit taking of early investors.
Binance proposes a real-time token burning mechanism to boost BNB value
- Binance has proposed the BEP-95 aimed to burn a percentage of transaction fees as a deflationary measure.
- BEP-95 will occur alongside the quarterly token burn and well after the 100 million token supply is achieved.
Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is taking further steps to incorporate an additional deflationary mechanism to increase token valuation. As announced today, Binance (BNB) is introducing a new Binance Evolution Protocol (BEP) known as BEP-95. The BEP stands out from the network’s occasional token burns since it introduced a real-time burning mechanism.
According to Binance, a fixed portion of gas fees collected by validators in each block will be sent to the burn address. The ratio initially set at 10 percent, is adjustable according to changes proposed by the Binance community. BSC validators get to vote on community proposals, where voting power is based on staked BNB.
For a proposal to be reviewed by the validators, it has to receive a minimum deposit of 2,000 BNB (mainnet). All BNB is returned to holders after the finalization of the voting process. A proposal that wins is that which gathers 50 percent of the total voting power on the mainnet. Binance notes that voted-upon parameters are implemented immediately.
Details of Binance BEP-95 token burning mechanism
BEP-95 became relevant as it speeds up the BNB token burn, and makes the network increasingly decentralized. The BNB supply cap is about 168 million tokens and Binance intends to burn until 100 million tokens remain in circulation. This will take about 5-8 years to complete, according to Binance. The network’s most recent quarterly burn wiped out over 1 million tokens, worth about $639 million, from circulation.
However, the latest update from its blog now says the BEP-95 burn “will continue functioning” even after the above target is attained. With the burn, Binance expects the intrinsic value of the BNB token to increase in tandem with demand. The network notes that validators and delegators may receive fewer tokens from staking, but the “fiat-denominated value of their rewards may increase.” Moreover, BNB has multiple use cases that benefit all holders of the token.
Currently, BEP-95 is in the draft stage and the network is yet to give a specific date for its implementation.
Several blockchains use the crypto-burning mechanism to create token scarcity and a subsequent increase in token value. Ethereum, for instance, uses the EIP-1559 for this purpose.
BNB price action
BNB, the fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, was trading at $494 at press time, according to our data. The token has gained 0.8 percent in the day, and 4.8 percent week-over-week. Similar to other digital assets, BNB has rallied fueled by the Bitcoin-led gains. Crypto investor and YouTuber Lark Davis expects “good things” for the BNB price following its launch of a $1B growth fund.
Google warns crypto investors of Youtube scams amidst high hacking
- Google warn crypto investors to be weary of Youtbe scams.
- Google says hackers impersonate crypto influencers to run scams on YouTube.
- YouTube, a hotbed for crypto scams.
Google’s Threat Analysis Group has warned crypto investors to beware of cryptocurrency scams on Youtube as phishing and impersonation on the video-sharing platform surges.
The Google group noted that a group of hackers is taking over Youtube, rebranding popular Youtube channels of well-known crypto or tech companies. “The channel name, profile picture, and content are all replaced with cryptocurrency branding to impersonate large tech or cryptocurrency exchange firms,” the group said, adding that hackers would live stream videos promising crypto giveaways in exchange for “initial contributions.”
According to the Google group, if these hackers don’t rebrand, they sell pages to the highest bidder depending on how many subscribers the channel has. They note that fake Youtube pages sell anywhere from $3 to $4,000.
The Google group notes that a group of hackers recruited in a Russian-speaking forum are actors behind the campaign.
Crypto investors should be warned as YouTube remains a hotbed for crypto scams
The video-sharing platform so many times has been used as a tool to dupe unsuspecting crypto investors. In December, American crypto exchange Gemini exposed two fake YouTube channels that were pretending to be from the exchange.
“These scam accounts are not our company. We have reported these accounts to YouTube,” Gemini tweeted.
Funny enough, it was not the first time Gemini was being impersonated on Youtube.
Crypto scams have been well perpetrated on the platform that the video giants ban crypto content on its platform. Authorities in the UK also warned young crypto investors with campaigns on Youtube and TikTok against being victims of crypto scams.
The cycle of crypto scams across all platforms is one that may never end. As much as crypto exists, crypto scams would remain a thing. The rise in crypto scams recently has been attributed to the surge in price and adoption of cryptos globally. It is safe to say that with crypto prices going up and more people, corporate organizations adopting cryptos, more scammers will be threatening the burgeoning space.
