XSGD Stablecoin Launched by Xfers

Popular payment institution Xfers has announced the launch of XSGD, the first Travel Rule compliant stablecoin. XSGD is backed 1:1 with the Singapore dollar (SGD).

The issuing institution, Xfers, in an official blog post, disclosed that the launch stands as an important milestone towards achieving a trusted financial system in Southeast Asia. A system that that is open and accessible to all.

According to the official blog post, users and holders can now easily convert their SGD to XSGD. They simply need to login to their verified Xfers account and bookmark their blockchain address.

Xfers furthermore confirmed the launch on Twitter.

Regulatory compliant and secure

The payment institution Xfers currently holds a MAS (Monetary Authority of Singapore) license. This simply means that Xfers can print as many XSGD tokens as it desires using its e-money issuance license. Also, all the minted stablecoins are backed 1:1 with the Singapore dollar.

According to the official blog post, MAS also recently adopted FATF (Financial Action Task Force) Travel Rule guidelines. Xfers added that ensuring the stablecoin complies with PSN01 is a major goal. The XSGD stablecoin complies with FATF Travel Rule and has a working onchain monitoring component brought on by Elliptic and Merkle Science. The Travel Rule is that the payment data associated with the recipient and sender of a cryptocurrency transaction must travel along with the actual payment itself. Lastly, all funds are securely held in separate accounts in MAS-licensed banks.

Xfers is supported by several top custody solutions, such as Fireblocks, Ledger Vault, OnChain Custodian, and even Bitgo. This, in essence, points out the layers of top-notch security Xfers employs. The institution furthermore boasts of a simplified tokenization platform.

Xfers tokenization platform

On this platform, interested users can easily convert the XSGD to SGD and vice versa. With the launch of XSGD, the platform is now open to verified Xfers users. To convert SGD to XSGD, users need to first whitelist their “Ethereum or Zilliqa blockchain address to enable XSGD transfers in and out of the Xfers platform.” Once this is done, they can then easily convert SGD to XSGD and vice versa. The rate of this conversion is 1:1.

Ecosystem partners

Xfers have also partnered with several topnotch institutions in a bid to create more use cases for the XSGD stablecoin. In line with the partnerships, XSGD can be found in a wide range of platforms. These platforms include institutional custodians, exchanges, analytics tools, DeFi, non-custodial wallet solutions, etc.

The ecosystem partners include:

Interestingly, the XSGD stablecoin is available on both Ethereum and Ziliqa protocols. On Ethereum it is an ERC20 token while on Zilliqa it is a ZRC-20 token. Plans are in place to expand the stablecoin ecosystem in the near future.

Recent News on Safe Haven (SHA)

Safe Haven (SHA), known for building fintech solutions on blockchain, has been working tirelessly on new projects. This work has been done in both collaboration with others and as a solo effort. 

This report shall look at the recent news, projects, and partnerships by Safe Haven (SHA).

Safe Haven launches Inheriti community edition

Inheriti represents the first digital inheritance solution that is fully decentralized. Launched two weeks ago, blockchain experts can now have access to this digital inheritance solution by Safe Haven.

The Community Edition (CE) presents decentralized inheritance of data in its most transparent form. The solution also makes use of SafeKey technology and blockchain to ensure the safe distribution of encrypted shares on cold storage devices.

Vulcan acquires CometVerse from Safe Haven

On the 3rd of October, Vulcan announced that they have successfully acquired CometVerse from Safe Haven. CometVerse is a marketplace opened up by Safe Haven on the VeChain ecosystem.

Responding to this announcement, Safe Haven revealed that CometVerse has “found a new home” with Vulcan. Vulcan Forged notes that the acquisition is perfect as Vulcan Forged is leading the way with NFTs and dApps while Safe Haven is concentrating on Inheriti, all of which are on VeChain. Safe Haven wishes to further collaborate with Vulcan Forged for future projects.

Safe Haven to permit fixed APR staking for $SHA holders

Logino Dujardin, CEO of Safe Haven, announced that after the CryptoFarm that took place on October 4, most holders became willing to stake their $SHA.

It is pertinent to note that $SHA is the native token for Safe Haven. For this reason, the CEO proposed that Safe Haven may launch “a fixed staking program within the NODE application.” He also points out that a fixed APR will also be arranged both for NODE and non-NODE holders.

DeFi Ecosystem Q3 2020 Report

2020 has been dubbed the year of decentralized finance (DeFi). The DeFi ecosystem is made up of both decentralized finance and decentralized applications (dApps).

According to DappRadar, the Ethereum blockchain currently houses about 96% of all DeFi ecosystem transactions. The introduction of yield farming has furthermore attracted investors to this fast-growing space. Better incentives also resulted in a 10x increase of the DeFi ecosystem during Q3 of 2030.

This article will cover in-depth details like transaction volume, total assets locked, earnings, etc. Important details like the other blockchain platforms (TRON, Ontology, EOS, etc.) housing a small portion of DeFi will also be analyzed.

Important details

It is important to note that:

Apart from transaction volume, total value locked (TVL) was also up by 380% from Q2 2020. At the end of Q3 2020, TVL was approximately $10 billion. The dApps that brought about the most increase include Uniswap, MakerDAO, and Curve. Uniswap growth was mainly due to the launch of its UNI governance token.

More details

As previously stated, Ethereum accounts for 56% of daily active wallets, with its major contributors being Uniswap, SushiSwap, Balancer, and Compound. The biggest contributors on EOS protocol include the DeFis Network, Defibox, and Dmd.Finance. Together they contributed a total of 4,300 daily active wallets.

Lastly, major dApps contributors on TRON include Zethyr Finance, JUST, and Oikos.cash. Also, new DeFi projects like Sun, Unifi Protocol, and SharkTron contributed about 32,000 daily active wallets.

Several protocols like NEO, IOST, and Ontology also joined the DeFi train in Q3 2020.

Yield farming and governance tokens

The launch of new governance tokens and yield farming has been linked to the current DeFi boom in Q3 2020. Yield farming was first launched by Synthetix, but it gained popularity through Compound.

Launched in June, Compound experienced exponential growth, reaching up to $4 billion by the middle of the same month.

SushiSwap was then launched in August. The project practically catapulted the DeFi ecosystem sky high. With Uniswap as a base, the project raised over a $6 billion transaction volume and migrated in September.

Following the migration of SushiSwap, Uniswap launched its UNI governance token. The token was a huge success with immediate listings on top exchanges like Coinbase Pro, etc. Transaction volume peaked and $33 billion was raised. This amount alone accounted for about 60% of the DeFi ecosystem total transaction volume.

While Ethereum currently tops the chart for the blockchain holding DeFi protocols, the network faces a huge issue – scalability. As DeFi protocols increase on the network, Ethereum is showing serious signs of congestion. Gas prices are ridiculously high and the network is generally slow. With this in mind, several blockchain platforms are turning up as a replacement for Ethereum. They include Polkadot, Cardano, and Binance.

NFT Sales Spikes as Rarible Crosses $5 Million Benchmark

Nonfungible tokens (NFT) have recorded an unprecedented increase in sales. Leading the charge is Rarible, an NFT marketplace where digital collectibles can be “minted,” bought, and sold.

Launched this year, the Rarible marketplace has garnered the attention of enthusiasts worldwide. Sales on the NFT platform have spiked in recent times, with total monthly sales on the platform reaching up to a whopping $5 million. This figure currently dwarfs that of OpenSea, the supposed king of the NFT marketplace.

The DeFi space is quite distinct from the nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace. Analysts have, however, linked the surge in NFT marketplace sales to the rise in DeFi protocol usage. According to reports, the anticipated bull market, liquidity mining, etc. associated with the DeFi space is also the cause of the spike in NFT sales.

About Rarible

Prior to its July 15, 2020, governance token (RARI) launch, Rarible was basically unknown in NFT space. The governance token launch, as well as mouthwatering incentives for buying and selling art, attracted people to the NFT marketplace.

A September 16 report by Messari, a crypto asset data website, pointed out that the marketplace this month crossed the $5 million benchmark in monthly sales. Messari’s report further disclosed that $1.5 million of this amount was attained in a single day. Interestingly, a single item of digital art known as “Right Place & Right Time” sold for $100,000 on September 21, 2020. This rising sale is a clear indication that the NFT space is relatively unaffected by the current economic crisis.

Although 2020 has been dubbed the year of DeFi, the NFT marketplace is also steadily garnering attention this summer.

Digital art to surpass traditional art – True/False

News of the Rarible marketplace sales spike and increasing interest in digital art has attracted the attention of top people in the crypto space. 

According to reports, Anthony Pompliano and Jason Williams, co-founders of Morgan Creek Digital, have allegedly made a bet on digital art. 

Pompliano in his newsletter, summed up the details of the bet. He pointed out that the bet is based on the fact that digital art is predicted to surpass traditional art. This seems far-fetched though as the traditional art market has a $65 billion cap while the digital art cap is currently at $10 million.

Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of FTX, in response to Pompliano, had a doubtful stance. His tweet sparked a debate on the future of NFTs and the price of art in general. 

However, it is important to also note that impossibility is a term almost non-existent in the crypto space. Case in point, just look at DeFi’s current phenomenal rise, the current increase in general altcoin prices, and even the Bitcoin bull run of 2017.

Splinterlands recently launched a series of NFT boosters. Minecraft also disclosed plans to finally launch its NFTs and a new NFT marketplace this year.

Venezuela Authorizes Pilot Program for DeFi Exchange

The National Superintendency of Securities of Venezuela has authorized the operation of a decentralized (DeFi) electronic exchange known as BDVE. This pilot program is being touted as the “world’s first decentralized stock exchange.” 

This project from Venezuela is a DeFi project on the Ethereum network that will be tested in the next 90 days. Users will be able to buy tokenized assets and ERC20 tokens on the exchange.

Leveraging on DeFi for stocks and derivatives

This announcement was published on the 29th of September in the Official Gazette number 6,578. The document mentions that the platform will serve the primary, secondary, and derivatives markets (options and futures). In addition, it will carry out public offerings for securities, negotiations, transfers, custody processes, and settlements. The platform would also be able to work on multiple smart contracts.

“This platform allows the security custody process to be individual, shielded and public. There is also a trading system available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week that guarantees transparency, security, speed, reliability, traceability, and lower cost of operations,” mentions the Official Gazette.

The information was also disclosed Tuesday night by Manuel Aaron Fajardo García, who serves as the main manager of the new digital exchange. Through a live broadcast from his Instagram account, he indicated that the project has been undergoing set up “for months.” However, the development of the project was kept secret and unknown to the public.

In relation to commissions or fees, the exchange’s website indicates that it will be 0% for fiat money sales operations. Also, it would be 0.1% for sales operations carried out through “alternative digital assets.”

DeFi stock market can aid finance for multiple sectors

Another aspect that Manuel Aaron Fajardo García highlighted is that the decentralized stock market can serve as a source of financing for multiple sectors in Venezuela. The reason is that the new entity does not depend on the national financial system.

When reviewing the operations manual of the electronic stock exchange, it is observed that it is a DeFi project (decentralized finance) that works with smart contracts and multiple tokens on the Ethereum network.

It should be noted that you have to be a citizen of Venezuela in order to use the BDVE app. Also, there is discussion on how decentralized the exchange can actually be as it is controlled by the socialist government of Venezuela.

According to local reports, other financial projects have been approved in Venezuela. Among them, the Interbanex system stands out, a short-functioning virtual currency market that was authorized by the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) in January 2019.

The Venezuelan economy is still in shambles. The policies dictated by the socialist government has led to massive shortages in food, medical supplies, and fuel. A number of citizens turned to Bitcoin mining in order to survive, but the government has made it mandatory for miners to have a license and all mining operations are carried out via a national mining pool. Hence, the government controls payouts, not to mention the importation of all crypto mining equipment.

One program, Bitcoin for Venezuela, has been providing food to hungry families by soliciting Bitcoin donations from around the world.

Quant Network (QNT) Review – Conclusion

This article is the conclusion of a series of articles as well as a video review that we published about the Quant Network (QNT).

A proper review of any cryptocurrency project involves examining a variety of factors. The aspects of Quant Network which Altcoin Buzz published about already are listed below. This article will be a summary of those previous pieces.

CEO & Team
QNT Utility & Tokenomics
Quant Network’s Products | Overledger
Overview & Partnerships

Below is the video review of the Quant Network.

The Team

Previously, we discussed the double-edged sword regarding the majority of the old Quant Network team being replaced by new members. On the one hand, it raises unanswered questions as to why exactly these old team members left or were let go. On the other hand, it’s natural and even logical to hire new talent in a fast-growing company with ever-changing needs.

The founder, Gilbert Verdian, has extensive blockchain experience and contacts and has been working to make Quant Network grow for 5 years. His relevant experience, contacts, and commitment to this project represent a strong advantage.

QNT Tokenomics

The tokenomics of QNT are excellent when compared to many other projects. The majority of the tokens to ever be issued are already circulating. Also, the team has a relatively small percentage of these tokens. In addition, there is no inflation with a fixed supply of 14,612,493 QNT tokens.

QNT Use Case

quant network review conclusionThe QNT token is required for usage of the Quant Network and Overledger operating system. Any enterprise that wants to experiment with and harness the power of interoperability with blockchains will be required to use QNT tokens to do so. Further information regarding the details of how these QNT tokens can be used is yet to be revealed.

Quant Network Partnerships

Quant Network has collaborations with over 300 organizations, according to an admin from the Quant Network Telegram group. The issue with their partnerships is that we may never know exactly which enterprises or organizations they have partnerships with due to NDA agreements these organizations may demand. That being said, they have announced a number of partners, including one with SIA, which is their most notable one.


There is no shortage of competition when it comes to interoperability between blockchains. That being said, Quant Network regularly announce new partnerships and new hires and has a dedicated community of supporters. If they keep up the way they have been recently, they have a good chance of maintaining a competitive edge. In addition, their interoperability solution is exceptionally easy for enterprises to adopt, unlike many of their competitors. This offers them a unique competitive advantage.


In terms of the strengths of Quant Network, the founder has extensive experience and a wide range of contacts who could be invaluable. In addition, the team has secured over 300 organizations with which to collaborate, many of which are at the enterprise level. Another strong point for QNT is that the team behind this altcoin has a big vision. They also have working products that are ready for enterprises to use. One or two successful enterprise solutions could have a massive impact on the QNT price. The ease of which their solutions and products can be implemented by enterprises gives Quant Network an edge over its competitors. Finally, QNT tokenomics are exceptionally favorable for investors.

Are There Any Possible Ethereum Gas Fee Solutions?

The Ethereum gas fee actually became a choke point for ETH traders last week. As the average transaction fees soared to $15.29 on September 2, many traders faced transaction delays and rejections. Disappointingly, the gas fee consumed the entire transaction amount for some traders. 

It is a common opinion that the explosion of DeFi and the popularity of Tether have triggered the explosive Ethereum gas fee hike. Some suggest Ethereum 2.0 could be a solution, but the reality is that its mainnet launch is months away.

So, is there no solution to reduce the ETH gas fees?

Vitalik Buterin says solutions exist

After hearing a lot of bashing, Vitalik Buterin gave his opinion about the gas fee solutions. According to Vitalik, increasing the throughput is the solution to put an end to the gas fee issue.

In this vein, he emphasizes that Layer 2 solutions by zksync, Loopring, and Omisego that scale up to 2,500 plus TPS (transactions-per-second) are a go-to solution for a high gas fee.


Vitalik believes rollup and sharding are the best solutions to increase scalability. Loopring is the first and only 100% rollup payment solution on Ethereum. Its popularity has been touching the sky with the ETH gas fee hike episode. As a layer 2 solution, Loopring offers a simple UI on the website so that it’s easy to use for a novice ETH trader too.

Furthermore, Loopring is a protocol that is used to build non-custodial, high-performance, order book exchanges on Ethereum using zkRollup. Using zkRollup increases scalability as it conducts mass transfers by bundling hundreds of transfers into one transaction.

According to Loopring’s monthly update, Loopring protocol 3.6 is close to code completion and will be ready for external audits soon.

About a month back when DataDash founder Nicholas Merten asked Vitalik the most immediate solution to lower on-chain network fees, Vitalik recommended Loopring.


As a trustless layer 2 scaling solution, zkSync is the first zkRollup with no application-specific trusted setup. On June 18, 2020, the project announced the launch of zkSync v1.0 on its mainnet. Built using zkRollup technology, zkSync is progressing ahead to build a 2,000 TPS solution to greatly reduce the ETH gas fee costs.

It offers its users a very intuitive UX that works with any ETH wallet. The good news for developers is that zkSync is very easy to integrate into their projects.


On June 1, 2020, OmiseGo shipped its OMG Network V1 Mainnet Beta. It is a layer 2 scaling solution that promises to reduce the gas fee by 66%. The solution groups hundreds of Ether and ERC20 transactions together to scale the network. By employing this, high throughput of thousands of TPS is achieved that results in 1/3rd the transaction cost without compromising the security.

Here is a video on our Altcoin Buzz YouTube channel discussing the solutions in detail.

 2nd layer stable chains for scaling – xDai Chain

While the world was busy paying outrageous fees for moving their ETH, xDai Chain’s @RaidGuild was deploying solutions to ease the gas fees pain on the Ethereum mainnet.

xDai Chain is the first USD stable blockchain and it was born with an idea to not have volatile gas prices as the native coin was stable. As an EVM-based layer 2 sidechain, it uses the xDai stablecoin as the native currency. Basically, xDai is a Dai bridged from Ethereum 1:1. It is designed in a way so that xDai lives on a sidechain. Because of this, the transaction costs are extremely low.

Here is our in-depth article about xDai and how it supports fast, cheap, and no ETH gas fee transactions.

CyberVein (CVT) Up 5000% in 2020

Cybervein (CVT) has had an epic price run in 2020. It has risen by just shy of 5000% in terms of USDT value since its all-time low in early January 2020. Is this run showing any signs of slowing down? What might be good price levels to buy back in at?

Since recording an all-time low of 0.0295 USDT in the first week of January 2020, CVT has experienced almost a phenomenal 50x increase in price. This occurred when the CyberVein price reached its all-time high of 0.14499 USDT on August 31, 2020 on the Malta-based OKEx cryptocurrency exchange.

CyberVein CVT

Bullish momentum

CyberVein CVT

Recent higher highs on the MACD histogram, as well as a fresh new uptrend on the RSI indicator on the weekly chart, show that CVT has not lost any of its bullish momentum. While the weekly chart has been in the overbought area (above 70 on the RSI indicator) for four weeks, this is common to see in bull markets. Indeed, CVT spent a full nine weeks in this overbought area during its last big run up. Even after correcting down below the overbought area in its previous run, the weekly chart maintained its higher high and higher low structure.

Psychological 0.01 level

CVT is currently in price discovery mode. This is to say that the price has never been in the area in which it is now. This makes it very hard to predict how much higher it can go. It is during times like these when some of the few tools that technicians have to go by are psychologically-relevant numbers. In this case, we are attempting to close above the 0.1 USDT level but have not yet had a weekly close above it. A weekly close below this level might lead to a period of consolidation which could provide a good entry point at lower levels.

Waning volumeCyberVein CVT

The past several weeks have seen very low volume compared to the previous leg up. This is a warning sign that this current move up does not have as much credence to it as the previous large move up which we saw in March, April, and May. It does not imply that the CyberVein price will correct but it does indicate that there is less confidence in this move up than there was in the last ones this year.


Good level to buy CVTCyberVein CVT

While it might be tempting to buy CVT now, it is not safe to buy assets which are in the middle of a leg up as they can have large corrections yet still remain in bullish territory. The best time to buy is when there is a pull back or a consolidation of price action.

The 13 EMA on the weekly chart has proven to be a solid support during the past six months. Five weekly candles have flirted with this level with no candle closing below it. If the price comes back to test this level, an entry could be considered.

Bluzelle Launches DeFi-Focused Oracle Solution

The Decentralized Finance (DeFi) space is one aspect of the crypto and blockchain industry that has attracted the attention of enthusiasts in recent times.

With this in mind, Bluzelle has disclosed plans to expand into this fast-rising sphere by launching an oracle network specially designed for DeFi protocols. Bluzelle’s recently debuted oracle platform will provide trusted and accurate data. In addition, it will also ensure top-notch security for DeFi protocols.

The Bluzelle DeFi-focused oracle is one of several ways the platform is looking to become a top name in the blockchain and crypto sphere. The DeFi ecosystem has continued to garner the interest of major players in the crypto space. A major pointer to this is the current rise in ETH fees.

According to reports, Bluzelle Oracle will provide accurate price feeds and stellar security for DeFi protocols. Especially for applications actively involved in staking, payments, and lending.

Bluzelle further disclosed that its recently debuted oracles will make use of its BluzelleDB database. This means taking advantage of the database’s large number of validator nodes.  

DeFi protocols and oracle solutions

The importance of a trusted and reliable oracle solution to a DeFi protocol cannot be overemphasized. Oracles serve as a link between on-chain and off-chain platforms, relaying data between both parties. Bluzelle boasts of being able to communicate decentralized data while ensuring top-notch security.

In a press release, Bluzelle disclosed that its oracle solution will furthermore allow the storage and referencing of historical price data. This facilitates easy access to trusted price feeds. It would also ensure data is protected from attacks and gives the ability to offer the fast return of prices. 

Speaking on the announcement, Bluzelle CEO Neeraj Murarka pointed out that the current increase in DeFi transactions has opened the space up to nefarious individuals. He adds that Bluzelle’s oracle solution  has a “unique algorithm to determine accurate asset prices and at the same time provide advanced warnings of threats on the DeFi app.”

Bluzelle has recently been in the limelight for the right reasons. The blockchain platform recently announced the launch of its staking economics. The launch provides early stakers with the opportunity of enjoying an APY as high as 25%.

Altcoin Buzz recently published an article detailing a partnership of HedgeTrade with Bluzelle and Simplex.

Zcoin Partners With StakeHound

Privacy-focused cryptocurrency Zcoin has entered into a strategic partnership with StakeHound.

The partnership will bring the liquidity of Zcoin’s Znodes to the DeFi space. This is exciting news as Zcoin (XZC) will be the first-ever crypto asset to go live on the StakeHound platform. XZC is currently available to users on the Ropsten testnet, but it will officially be launched this October.

Prior to this announcement, the Zcoin team have been researching on ways to create more use cases for XZC. One major area they looked into was integrating the crypto with DeFi. Thereby, making it possible for Zcoin (XZC) to be employed as loan collateral and, subsequently, creating better awareness and liquidity for the crypto. With this in mind, the partnership with StakeHound brings to life this initiative.

Zcoin’s Znodes are an integral aspect of the Zcoin ecosystem by providing top-notch security to the privacy-focused ecosystem. However, Znodes suffer from a major drawback as it locks a fair amount of Zcoin. All XZC locked in Znodes were inaccessible and therefore remained illiquid.  Also, with a benchmark of 1000 XZC, small scale XZC holders were unable to earn rewards on their holdings.

However, this strategic partnership with StakeHound will proffer solutions to these drawbacks. A major way to achieve this is by representing XZC as an ERC-20 token on the popular Ethereum blockchain. The partnership will facilitate fractional trading of Znodes and also furnish users with benefits associated with integrating with the DeFi space.

Zcoin further confirmed this announcement on Twitter.

How it operates

Below is a step-by-step representation of how to create staked XZC.

First, interested users will need to send Zcoin (XZC) to the StakeHound platform. StakeHound then sends it to a custodian.

Next, StakeHound sends back an equal amount of XZC to the user but this time as ERC-20 tokens. XZC ERC-20 tokens can easily be traded or transferred on popular DeFi platforms like Uniswap and Aave.

Finally, StakeHound safely locks the native XZC tokens in Znodes and then distributes the rewards daily to users with staked XZC. Amazingly, though locked in Znodes, staked XZC can also still be traded to earn Znode rewards.

Below is a graphical representation of how XZC can be traded on popular DEX platform Uniswap.

Zcoin and StakeHound partnership

Looking ahead

New and exciting updates are expected with regards to staking XZC in the coming weeks. Users should expect an in-depth guide on how to use staked XZC as well as the importance of the partnership with StakeHound.

Although this is a major move into the DeFi space, Zcoin reiterated its commitment to privacy in a blog post. The blog post disclosed that “Zcoin’s primary goal to provide the highest level of practical privacy remains unchanged.” The partnership with StakeHound is a way to increase the value, liquidity, and utility of Zcoin (XZC).

Altcoin Buzz recently covered Zcoin’s highly-anticipated Lelantus protocol audit results. 

In a recent video on the Altcoin Buzz YouTube channel, we listed Zcoin as one of the DeFi coins to look out for.

At the time of writing, Zcoin was trading at $4.66, with a market cap of $50,891,291 and a 24-hour trading volume of $24,107,393.

Trabzonspor Partners Chiliz to Launch Fan Token

Turkish football club Trabzonspor has partnered with Chiliz to launch their fan token. Trabzonspor joins football organizations like FC Barcelona, Atlético de Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AS Roma, Galatasaray, CA Independiente, Apollon Limassol, and eSports organizations Team Heretics and OG in using the fan token system of Socios.com.

According to reports, Trabzonspor will release their Fan Token ($TRA) on the Socios.com app and the Chiliz Exchange.

Possible benefits

The holders of Trabzonspor Fan Tokens ($TRA) will reportedly be able to impact club decisions and vote in several polls each season on Socios.com. In addition, token holders get the opportunity to obtain rewards linked to the club’s innovative digital experiences. These rewards include meeting players and watching games as a VIP when fans return to the stadiums.

Additionally, the club revealed plans to release a leaderboard where fans can receive rewards points based on how they interact with the club through the app. Thus, giving fans the chance to compete to become the top fan in their region/country.

Alexandre Dreyfus, the CEO and founder of Chiliz and Socios.com, commented on the development. He said, “The passion for football in Turkey is incredible. But, there’s also a willingness to embrace new technology that makes it a massively appealing market for us.”

Alexandre Dreyfus also claims that Trabzonspor shares the vision of Socios.com. This is the notion that they can build a closer connection with their fans in Turkey and around the world via blockchain technology.

Sinan Zengin, the general manager at Trabzonspor, added, “Thanks to this partnership, we will have much more effective communication with our fans who are spread all over the world. Our fans will have the chance to influence and change the decisions of our club on some issues.”

About Chiliz, Socios.com, and FanTokens

Chiliz ($CHZ) is an ERC20 utility token on the Ethereum blockchain and a digital currency for sports and entertainment platforms. The token also serves as the digital currency for Socios.com where fans can buy, trade, and execute voting rights in their favorite sports teams.

Following the launch of the Socios.com platform and blockchain ventures, a new type of token was created – the Fan Token.

The fans of an FTO team are usually required to purchase $CHZ via a cryptocurrency exchange to acquire Fan Tokens.

Accordingly, ownership of the token offers fans the chance to partake in fan-led decisions through a mobile voting platform. The tokens also serve as a medium into a secure, exclusive inner circle of fans with shared passions.

The more tokens a fan holds and the more they vote, the higher the rating of that fan. Therefore, moving them upwards through different reward tiers until they get to the highest VIP benefits available.

Recently, Socios.com revealed plans to carry out 4 Fan Token Offerings (FTOs).

Ferrum Network Announce Partnership with Uptrennd

Ferrum Network, a blockchain-based FinTech company that brings financial products to emerging markets has announced a collaboration with Uptrennd.

Uptrennd will be the latest addition to Ferrum Network’s UniFyre Wallet listing and staking partnerships.

Uptrennd token, 1UP is an ERC-20 token that leverages the core upvoting system and serves as Uptrennd’s digital currency. Besides, the Uptrennd social media platform is known for its incentive structures that reward both content creators and users of the content.

Due to the nature of both projects, this staking and listing partnership is one to keep an eye on.

What can I expect?

Firstly, users now get the opportunity to start staking Uptrennd through Ferrum’s DeFi staking platform.

The relevance of staking has increased in recent times, but it has been reserved for big-cap projects with mainnet, leaving new projects like Uptrennd with no reasonable option to offer staking for their own token. Ferrum Network aims to bridge this gap with its flexible DeFi staking platform for any ERC-20 token. With the platform, users can lock their tokens and earn high yields based on the length of time staked.

Additionally, Uptrennd will be able to choose a staking structure that works for them by deciding on:

Uptrennd and UniFyre Wallet

A notable benefit for Uptrennd is getting access to all the benefits of a UniFyre Wallet listing. This includes technology like Link Drops, Pool Drops, and Swap Drops.

The Link Drop technology gives users the opportunity to send crypto assets to anyone through different platforms using a single link. These platforms include Telegram, Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook. As well as, LinkedIn, Reddit, Instagram, Email, and some other social media platforms where links can be posted.

Besides, the Pool Drop technology helps Uptrennd influencers and users send Uptrennd to 100 users at a go using a single link. Thus, making it possible to have seamless contests, AMAs, and other marketing campaigns.

With the Swap Drop technology, Uptrennd users get the chance to carry out risk-free OTC trades using a shareable link.

Advantages to the FRM holders and community

On the other side of the partnership, FRM holders and community have some benefits to watch out for.

Firstly, the listing fees paid in Uptrennd will be allocated to FRM holders with 100,000+ FRM in their UniFyre Wallet.

Additionally, the entire fees paid for the staking platform will be allocated to FRM buybacks.

About Ferrum Network, Ferrum, & UniFyre

Ferrum Network is a blockchain platform that brings financial applications to emerging markets that have products and network utility. The network also has complex financial applications that run on a DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) system that links to other blockchains and fiat currencies.

Ferrum (FRM) is the native token of Ferrum network. The token is based on the Ethereum blockchain. To boost transaction speed, users need to spend a few FRM tokens for every transaction as an anti-spamming measure. The token burns each time spending is done.

UniFyre is a link to Ferrum’s innovative product line for investing, transacting, exchanging, and storing any cryptocurrencies. The key parts of Unifyre wallet involve instant market trades and risk-free OTC trading. Following connections with Ferrum Network and Infinity DEX, users are able to buy and sell any digital asset at market price in a decentralized way. UniFyre also solves a problem common with most crypto networks, which is the inability to undo a transaction.

Last week, Uptrennd announced its entrance into the De-Fi space. Jeff Kirdeikis, CEO of Uptrennd revealed their plans to roll out multiple De-Fi implementations (one per week) in the coming future.

Uptrennd’s 1UP token is priced at $0.059794 at the time of press, with a 24-hour trading volume of $607,756. 1UP price is up 1168.8% in the last 30 days.

Upland expands Metaverse to New York City

The top 5 mobile gaming Dapp has expanded its Metaverse to New York City. Upland has featured properties in San Francisco since its beta launch and has found huge success. 

Upland is a virtual property game based on actual addresses in the world. Players can buy, sell, and trade these properties to earn income or connect with other players. Each property is an NFT (non-fungible token) that can be traded in secondary markets. The Upland economy already consists of active traders who are flipping their properties for profit on a daily basis.

New York City

Dirk Lueth, Co-Founder of Upland says, “We have been so encouraged by the success of the San Francisco launch and we are now ready to launch NYC, one of the most famous cities in the world. There are countless people who visited and are fascinated by New York City’s beautiful skylines and rich culture. We are excited to bring ‘the city that never sleeps’ to life in Upland.”

Manhattan will be the initial area of launch in The Big Apple and will continue to expand to Midtown, Upper West Side, Lower East Side, Upper East Side, and Village/Chelsea. Players can also look forward to treasure hunts, special events, and challenges that will be available soon.


Upland is built on EOS blockchain and has its own cryptocurrency, UPX. Players can generate a passive income (UPX) by owning properties and increase their earnings by completing missions. Winning treasure hunts and participating in live events also gives players more opportunities to earn.

Upland has also announced a partnership with Tilia Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Linden Research, Inc. (“Linden Lab”), the creator of Second Life. They will work together to bring about more features in Q4 this year. Upland is currently available on iOS, Android, and desktop devices.

Zcoin Publishes Lelantus Protocol Audit Results

The importance of privacy to the blockchain and cryptocurrency space can not be over-emphasized. Hence, the proposed launch of the Lelantus protocol by privacy-focused cryptocurrency Zcoin.

To facilitate the launch of the much-anticipated Lelantus protocol, Zcoin has released details of the protocol cryptographic audit trail. Funded by Zcoin Crowdfunding System (ZCS) community donations, the audit trail was carried out by Jim Miller and Will Song.

Miller and Song are both engineers employed by popular audit firm Trail of Bits.

In April, Reuben Yap, COO of Zcoin had discussed in detail the rudiments of privacy on the blockchain in a YouTube interview with Altcoin Buzz.

Details of the audit result

The results of the audits by Trail of Bits turned out exceptionally well. Apart from a few typographical errors, the entire protocol seems to be in order. According to the audit, the typos were majorly located in the protocol’s academic paper as well as a few inconsequential aspects of the protocol. The cryptographic library audit uncovered two drawbacks on Lelantus. The first was of medium importance while the other was merely informational. The third issue of high severity was also uncovered and it concerns an incomplete integration code. According to the published audit, the Lelantus protocol had no security risk whatsoever.

All bugs on the protocol have been located, fixed, implemented, and reviewed by audit firm Trail of Bits. Furthermore, Lelantus protocol cryptographic library code is also now accessible to the general public. Find out more about the issues located on the protocol and the fixes carried out on them here.

Zcoin revealed that it was pleased with the audit carried out by Trail of Bits. Furthermore, adding that the demeanor, professionalism, and mastery displayed by the engineers who carried out the audit were quite impressive.

According to Zcoin, this cryptographic audit wouldn’t have been possible without the immense support of its community members. Several of them made donations through Zcoin’s Crowdfunding System (ZCS). The platform in total received approximately 5569 XZC from 105 contributors. Some of them include; Aram Jivanyan, Roger Ver, Hakushu, Nico Fritschi, Sebastian Bausch, Poramin Insom, Ivan Brightly, Reuben Yap, David Holliday, Rasikh Morani, Savil, Albert Castellana, etc. This list is far from comprehensive as many of the contributors chose to remain anonymous.

What does the future hold?

Apart from the recently concluded and published audit by Trail of Bits, Lelantus protocol is currently undergoing another cryptography audit. This time, the audit is being carried out by Dmitry Khovratovich of ABDK Consulting and solely funded from Zcoin Development Fund. This audit is absolutely important because instead of focusing on implementation, it is more concerned with the protocol’s actual cryptography. The result of the audit by ABDK Consulting is expected to be ready in about two weeks’ time.

Scheduled to go live before the end of the year, developers are hard at work to ensure the protocol meets up with its intended launch timeline. According to Zcoin, users should expect a Lelantus testnet launch in the coming weeks.

Previously we published an in-depth article of Zcoin Lelantus protocol, as well as the top 5 milestones on its XZC roadmap.

At the time of publishing, Zcoin’s token XZC is priced at $6.99 with a 24-hour trading volume of $19,167,554.

Matic Network Completes Phase 1 Staking

With plans to improve decentralization on its network, Matic has announced the completion of the first phase of its mainnet staking.

The completion of Matic Network Mainnet Phase 1 staking has furthermore ushered in Phase 2 of its mainnet staking.

Phase 1 saw the addition of 11 validators including Dapp partners to the network.

Matic network Dapp partners include:

Phase 2 is expected to drive more exceptional features on the network. First, the introduction of no less than 25 public validators. With plans to include more in the near future. The platform will also allow individual entities to bid for validator slots.

According to a Twitter post, the current staking results include:

Matic Network is looking to ensure true and complete decentralization. Every staker on the platform is helping to ensure security is maintained on the platform. Learning to stake and subsequently staking Matic is quite important to the Matic ecosystem. Below is a step by step guide on how to become a delegator on the Matic network.

Becoming a Matic Network Delegator

First and foremost, it is important to note that being a delegator requires no prerequisite. Interested persons only need to have an Ethereum account. Users will also need to have funds in their main Ethereum network to be able to function as a delegator.

Users who stake early (before bonding rates reach 10%) have a high chance of getting a 100% APR.

Who is a delegator?
Delegators are token holders who cannot operate a validator node. They, instead, stake their tokens to a validator and in return earn a percentage of the validator earnings. Since they share validators’ earnings, they also bear any risks the validator might face. The function of a delegator is quite crucial as they are majorly responsible for selecting validators.

Step by step guide

First, you need a Metamask wallet. Choose the Ethereum Mainnet icon on the wallet. Next, is to log in to the network dashboard. Find Matic Network Staking Dashboard here. To use a different wallet, you will need to import your account to Metamask before moving onto the Network Dashboard.

Once login is completed, you will be redirected to a page with a list of validators and their statistics. You will also see an icon that says “Become a Delegator”.

To every validator, there’s a delegate button. Next is to fill in the number of tokens you are willing to stake. Clicking on the delegate icon will confirm the transaction. However, it is important to note that it takes a total of 12 block confirmations to finally confirm all delegation transactions.

Finally, it is important to note that you can either re-stake or withdraw your wallet balance.

Earlier this year, we interviewed Sandeep Nailwal, Co-founder & COO of Matic Network on the Altcoin Buzz YouTube channel.

Find out more about Matic network validator and delegator here. We also recently published a Matic staking guide and the platform also recently partnered with Gitcoin.
