Huobi Unveils Plans for Fiat Gateway for Turkish Lira and Strategy for Huobi Turkey at Eurasia Blockchain Summit Istanbul 18555

Huobi Global announced ambitious plans for Turkey at the Eurasia Blockchain Summit, starting with the launch of a Turkish Lira (TRY) fiat gateway. Huobi reveals the fiat gateway is the first to be launched by a global exchange, providing Turkish users an accessible gateway to trade more assets with greater liquidity. During its opening remarks, the leading exchange platform and host of the inaugural event in Istanbul also unveiled the successful formation of a local team, localized language option on web (https://www.hbg.com/tr-tr/) and mobile app, exclusive trading fees, and a detailed strategy for Huobi Turkey and its crypto-friendly population.

The wave of conference announcements follows Huobi’s previous declaration to expand into the Turkish market. The Turkish Lira (TRY) on-ramp is estimated to be launched by year’s end with a TRY/USDT pairing. The service will provide users a means to easily deposit fiat currency via wire transfer and exchange for Tether (USDT) to trade crypto-to-crypto on Huobi Global. Alongside the launch announcement, Huobi also took the opportunity to outline an exclusive fee program for Turkish users to trade with 50% discount on transaction fees (0.1%) and as low as 0.07% transaction fees by holding Huobi Token (HT). The All Star VIP Program will also open to Turkish professional traders to trade with fees as low as 0.0078% across both Spot and Margin trades.

“In June, we first announced a series of initiatives to be rolled out in Turkey over the next several months, and we have since fulfilled these promises to the Turkish community,” said Livio Weng, CEO of Huobi Global. “Turkey is an important region for us, and we plan to bring Huobi’s six years of industry expertise, advanced ecosystem, and a standard of trust to the market, and trigger key conversations around long overdue for a thriving crypto community.

Mohit Davar, Regional President of Huobi Group, announced during the summit the establishment of a local team to head up its community, customer service, and business development efforts on the ground.

“Beginning with the landmark introduction of TRY/USDT trading, we will continue to demonstrate our deep commitment to the community via localized approaches to grow the market directly from our team in Istanbul,” said Davar.

The first annual Eurasia Blockchain Summit successfully brought together key industry leaders, Turkish government officials, and C-level representatives from local banks. Hosts Huobi Group and Kemer Partners realized their vision to have leading blockchain companies sit together with local establishments and discuss how they can support new projects as well as collaborate with traditional enterprises to adopt blockchain technology. Huobi Group CFO Chris Lee, Huobi University President Jianing Yu, and Huobi Research CEO Hubery Yuan all made appearances at the summit where they met with Turkish startups and projects to discuss partnerships at the local level.

Turkey has evolved into a thriving crypto-friendly nation and a theater of commerce for exchanges and blockchain businesses. Last month, the Turkish government revealed plans to create a national blockchain infrastructure to aid the public deployment of distributed ledger technology. Bitcoin is as popular as forex in Turkey, where 20% of the populace owns cryptocurrency, and the Lira is the fifth most popular fiat-crypto pair in the world.

Altcoins: LINK, HT, XRP and TRX 20155

LINK/USD

Chainlink (Link) has been among the top performers for the past three consecutive weeks. This shows that it is backed by momentum. However, after the stellar rise, can it continue its uptrend or will it succumb to profit booking?

LINK/USD

The LINK/USD pair recently closed above $2.0531 and this triggered our buy which was suggested in an earlier analysis. Our first target of $2.8498 was achieved last week, which shows that the bulls are not expecting a large fall, hence, are buying at higher levels.

Though the bulls pushed the price above $2.8498 during the week, they have not been to sustain the breakout. This shows profit booking by the short-term traders at the resistance level. However, with the rise in the past two weeks, the 20-week EMA has started to turn up, which shows that the advantage is with the bulls.

If the bulls can propel the price above $3, we expect the up move to reach $4 and above it $4.5826. Conversely, if the bulls fail to scale above $3, the pair might remain range-bound for a few more weeks. Our view will be invalidated on a break below $1.4612.

BNB/USD

Binance Coin (BNB) has made a comeback into this list after a long absence. Let’s look at the events of the past seven days that have ignited trader’s interest in it. Recently, the exchange launched the eighth phase of its lending product which allows owners to earn an annualized percentage yield of as high as 10% for a few cryptocurrencies.

Expanding its services, Binance launched peer-to-peer trading for its Android app users in China. The service will be available for Bitcoin, Ether and Tether (USDT) against the Chinese yuan. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said that this service will be expanded to other regions soon. Zhao also confirmed that users are able to use WeChat or Alipay for P2P transactions for payment, but both companies swiftly denied that this was true. Has BNB bottomed out or is it ready for an up move? Let’s study its chart.

BNB/USD

The bears could not capitalize on the sharp breakdown below $18.30 over the past two weeks. This resulted in a pullback that can carry the BNB/USD pair to the resistance line of the channel. As the downsloping 20-week EMA is also located at this level, we anticipate the bears to defend this resistance.

If the price turns down from the resistance line of the channel, it can again dip towards $14.2555. A breakdown of this support will resume the downtrend but if the price rebounds off this level, it will indicate a bottom formation.

A breakout and close above the channel will indicate an end of the downtrend. Traders can initiate a long position on a close (UTC time) above the channel and keep a stop loss of $14. The first target will be a move to $33 and above it, a retest of the lifetime highs is possible.

HT/USD

Huobi Token (HT) rallied just above 10% in the past seven days and turned out to be the third best performer. Investors are now wondering whether it bottomed out and is now ready for the next leg of its upside move?

HT/USD

The pullback in the HT/USD pair found support just below the 50% retracement level of the rally from the lows of $0.88 to the highs of $5.3506. This is a positive sign and it shows that bulls are stepping in to buy on dips.

On the upside, the bulls might face some resistance at $3.67 and $4.37. If both levels are crossed, a rally to $5.3506 will be on the cards. Traders can wait for the price to rise and close (UTC time) above the 20-week EMA before buying. A stop loss can be kept at $2.90.

Our bullish view will be invalidated if the pair turns down from one of the overhead resistance levels and plummets below $2.90. If that happens, a dip to $2.5878 is possible.

XRP/USD

Ripple has merged three of its services, xRapid, xVia, and xCurrent, into its RippleNet offering. With this move, “instead of buying xCurrent or xVia, customers will connect to RippleNet — on-premises or through the cloud — and instead of buying xRapid, clients will use On-Demand Liquidity,” said a Ripple spokesperson.

Bank of America (BoA) is also rumored to have hired a “treasury product manager” for Ripple. This shows that the bank is warming up to cryptocurrencies in some form. Similarly, United Kingdom-based financial software firm Finastra has joined RippleNet, which will help its customers with cheaper and faster cross-border payments.

For the past few days, Ripple Labs has been at the receiving end of criticism by some community members. However, Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, defended the company and said that its transparency has made it vulnerable to attack. While the  fundamentals are encouraging, has the technical picture also turned positive? Let’s study XRP’s chart.

XRP/USD

The relief rally in the past two weeks reached the first overhead resistance at the 20-week EMA. A breakout of this level will again hit a roadblock close to the 50-week simple moving average (SMA) and above it at the downtrend line of the descending triangle. If the bulls push the price above the triangle, it will invalidate the bearish pattern, which is a bullish sign.

Aggressive traders can buy on a close (UTC time) above the 20-week EMA and keep a stop loss of $0.215. Risk-averse traders, however, should wait for the price to breakout and close above the triangle to buy.

Both moving averages are flattening out and the RSI is gradually rising to the midpoint. This suggests that the selling pressure has subsided. Our view will be invalidated if the pair turns down from one of the overhead resistance levels and plunges below $0.22.

TRX/USD

This week Tron (TRX) has teamed up with the Stellar Development Foundation to form a new educational alliance that will provide working knowledge about blockchain technology to  university students. Let’s see if we can spot a buy setup on the TRX/USDT pair.

TRX/USD

The TRX/USDT pair is facing resistance close to $0.018660. This level has acted as a stiff barrier over the past few weeks. If the bulls fail to scale it once again, the pair might again dip towards the critical support of $0.011240. A breakdown of this support will be a negative sign and could point toward a new downtrend.

However, if the bulls can push the price above $0.018660 with strength, the large range of $0.011240-$0.0409111 will come into play. It is possible that the moving averages could act as resistance but we expect them to be crossed. Therefore, traders can buy on a close (UTC time) above $0.01860 with a stop loss of $0.0110. The first target target being $0.030 and above it $0.0409111.

BitGo Staking Launches with Dash and Algorand 21313

BitGo, the leader in digital asset financial services, announced today that it has launched BitGo Staking. Clients whose assets are with qualified custodian BitGo Trust can now generate passive income while their assets remain in secure, insured cold storage. BitGo Staking launches with Dash and Algorand, with support for additional coins planned for later this year. The rate of return will vary by coin, running from 7 percent to up to 13 percent for Algorand.

The company also announced that it has acquired Hedge, a leader in scalable, programmatic deployment of staking infrastructure. This acquisition forms the foundation of BitGo Staking through the integration of Hedge’s automated secure deployments, scalable and redundant processes, and the use of hardware security modules (HSMs) and secure cryptographic enclaves. Clients will have the option of choosing to delegate staking to BitGo or to the provider of their choice.

Proof of Stake

Proof of Stake (PoS) is gaining momentum as a number of new protocols move to the PoS model. Ethereum, the second largest asset by market cap, is expected to transition to this model within the next year. A key benefit of the PoS model is that it does not need substantial amounts of committed mining power making it more energy efficient than PoW. In addition, the ability of PoS coins and tokens to generate passive returns makes them attractive to a variety of investors and can incentivize long-term holding of the asset.

BitGo Staking benefits

  • Best-in-class security architecture: each node runs on its own dedicated virtual machine so one client’s node cannot access other nodes or infrastructure
  • No keys go online: seamless integration with BitGo Custody keeps assets in cold storage
  • Multi-signature technology: the industry standard for institutional investors
  • Choice of staking providers: delegate staking to BitGo Trust or use the staking provider of your choice
  • Insurance: custodial assets are insured for up to $100 million

“In order to be a great custodian, we need to provide our clients with the ability to use their assets in custody. Staking provides our clients with returns on their investments without ever moving their assets out of custody,” said Ben Chan, CTO, BitGo. “Our acquisition of Hedge builds on the blockchain and staking expertise within our engineering platform to deliver an automated, end-to-end staking service.”

“Building trust in cryptocurrency is a shared mission between BitGo and Dash, which led to our initial partnership last year,” said Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core Group. “Dash support in BitGo Staking builds on this relationship and provides additional ways to derive value from Dash in a safe and secure environment. We’re thrilled to be a part of BitGo Staking’s inaugural launch and expect masternode owners will be as well.”

“We are excited to welcome BitGo to the Algorand community,” said W. Sean Ford, COO of Algorand, Inc. “By providing custodianship services with multi-sig security as well as new staking opportunities, the BitGo partnership adds even more opportunities to participate in the Algorand ecosystem.”
