Blockchain Expo

The leading Blockchain Expo World Series has announced dates for its 2020 world series. Hosting our triannual Global expo on the 17-18th March, Europe 1-2 July and North America 4-5th November.   Our conferences are constantly evolving to meet the demands of the blockchain ecosystem. Bringing together content from industry leaders, top-level sponsors, and hundreds of exhibitors showcasing the very latest use of Blockchain technology. Further information on our world series and to register for your ticket see here: https://blockchain-expo.com

The event will bring together 9000+ attendees from 70+ countries to explore the entire enterprise technology ecosystem across now, a co-located event covering Blockchain, IoT, AI & Big data, Cyber Security & Cloud and the newest addition 5G. Over the two days there will be multiple networking events, parties, 1-1 connection opportunities, and a wide variety of exhibitors to engage with.

If 2017 was the year of blockchain hype, and 2018 was the year of naval-gazing and disappointment, 2019 was one of consolidation and understanding of the technology’s capability in an enterprise context.

Expect this trend to continue this year and beyond. Writing in November, Martha Bennett, VP and principal analyst at Forrester predicted that, alongside the public versus private debate reaching the executive table, interoperability and collaboration will be the key topic of discussion in 2020.

“We’ve already witnessed the emergence of multiple networks addressing the same use case… and there are also processes that span multiple chains,” wrote Bennett. “Participants in these permissioned networks are keen to understand whether, and how, these various chains will interact. We’ll also see a much greater focus on integration with existing systems; providers of existing automation and business process management solutions will seek to enhance their offerings with DLT capabilities.”

The consensus – to pardon the expression – now is that the technology is here, and it is decision time for many enterprises. Hyperledger executive director Brian Behlendorf, who spoke at Blockchain Expo Europe in June, says that enterprise adoption has ‘blossomed’. He agrees that it will not be a winner-take-all scenario.

“People have projected this image that there will be one winner or only one technology that becomes the VHS to everyone else’s Betamax – and I don’t think it’ll play out that way at all,” he says. “I think we’re at a moment now where organisations of any reasonable size should have a centre of competence, tracking new technology developments, and doing experiments in multiple technologies to understand them at a deeper level.”

Evidence suggests that for other emerging technologies, taking the next step reaps its reward. Research from McKinsey has found that more than half (58%) of companies who had gone into production with their IoT initiatives had seen at least a 5% increase in revenue, with 46% saying they had seen at least a 5% decrease in cost.

A wide variety of industries started taking those steps as 2020 came into view. Some were more obvious than others. Courier giant FedEx, with its focus on delivery, understandably has various blockchain bets. Again, the theme is cooperation. Dale Chrystie, business fellow and blockchain strategist at FedEx, and who spoke at Blockchain Expo North America, explains that blockchain is ‘not only a technology discussion’ for the almost 50-year-old company.

“We don’t believe we can put a FedEx logo on blockchain and the world will come to us,” says Chrystie. “It’s not about where we compete, but rather in blockchain, it’s about where we can agree in non-competitive areas that benefit all.”

Like many other technologies, it is not so much the technical hurdles which need to be overcome, but the cultural ones. Pramod Achanta, IBM VP and blockchain services leader for North America and another speaker at Blockchain Expo North America in November, led his team in writing a playbook for consortia to make the right decisions and eventually sponsor a production network. As he explains, blockchain is a ‘team sport’, but it does not tell the full story.

“It’s sometimes difficult to put those teams together,” says Achanta. “A lot of times the network needs to come together for the common good, but at the same time the value that each of these participants get out of that network may not be uniform.”

Getting all the stakeholders in the same room together – from project managers to vendors, to developers, to end-users – is therefore vital. In a mission to connect the blockchain ecosystem our next conference will take place at the Olympia London 17-18th March 2020. We have an audience of enterprise decision-makers who are responsible for innovating new technology within supply-chain, transport, legal sectors, financial services, retail, insurance, energy, music, gaming, government, real estate, luxury goods and more. 

New conference agenda:

  • NEW: Crypto & Digital Asset Investment
  • NEW: Convergent Technology Solutions

Analysis: Bitcoin is Undervalued, 2021 Bull Run Hasn’t Topped Yet

Published

on

During the first half of 2021, the ETH volume surged by more than 1,400% totaling $1.4 trillion, while BTC’s increased by 489%, reaching a total of $2.1 trillion.

ETH Beats BTC for The First Time

Coinbase took data from 20 trading venues and released a report, where it informed that Ether’s trading volume spiked by 1,461% during the first six months of 2021. Its total climbed to $1.4 trillion compared to $92 billion in the first half of 2020. In the meantime, Bitcoin marked an increase of 489%, and its trading volume hit $2.1 trillion.

The Coinbase report noted:

“Many of our largest institutional clients, including hedge funds, endowments, and corporates, increased or added first-time exposure to ETH in H1, believing the asset has long-term staying power tantamount to BTC’s while playing a differentiated role in their portfolios.”

The research also revealed the total market capitalization numbers for the first half of 2021. At the beginning of the year, the market started at $769 billion and surged to $2.4 trillion in May. Subsequently, it declined to $1.4 trillion by the end of the period.

The largest chunk of Bitcoin’s profits came during the first months of 2021 until April, when its price escalated towards an ATH. On the contrary, Ether saw the most of its earnings in May 2021, when it was worth more than $4,000.

Can ETH Become The Largest Cryptocurrency?

The debate whether Ether can surpass Bitcoin and become the leading digital asset has been a hot topic in the last few years.

At the beginning of May, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks – Mark Cuban – joined the argument and gave his three reasons why ETH will eventually outperform BTC: Ethereum’s network is capable of processing more transactions per second, and it is the platform where “the future of finance” is built. It also boasts a higher utilization compared to Bitcoin.

The prominent investor Mike Novogratz also gave his two cents on the matter. The renowned crypto bull hinted that such a scenario where Ether surpasses Bitcoin is possible as the network behind the second-largest cryptocurrency is rapidly expanding. However, he outlined the characteristics of the two digital assets expecting BTC to be the digital version of gold while ETH will have different purposes:

“I think Ethereum may even become the biggest cryptocurrency one day but it will have a very different use case than BTC.”

Coinbase Report: ETH Trading Volume Increased More Than Bitcoin’s in First Half of 2021

Published

on

Bitcoin exchange reserve has fallen off a cliff, on-chain analysis shows. This behavior is usually a bullish indicator for the BTC market.

Bitcoin All Exchanges Reserve Is Down

As pointed out by a CryptoQuant post, the BTC all exchanges reserve indicator has surged downhill over the past couple of days.

The Bitcoin all exchanges reserve is an indicator that shows the amount of BTC stored in wallets of all exchanges. When the metric’s value goes up, it means more investors are sending their crypto to exchanges.

More BTC in exchanges implies a selling pressure. On the other hand, when its value goes down, it means investors are sending their coins from exchange wallets to personal ones.

Here is a chart showing the trend in the value of the BTC all exchanges reserve over the last two months:

As the above graph shows, the metric has fallen down with quite the steep slope. Just over the past two days, the indicator has dropped more than 100K Bitcoin in value!

Since the value of the indicator going down means more BTC moving out of exchanges, it might mean that there is a buying pressure in the market. The price should be affected positively by this.

A look at outflow charts of popular exchanges shows massive movement. Coinbase Pro saw 30k BTC exiting the platform on Wednesday, while Binance, the largest exchange by trading volume, saw around 29k BTC moving out of its wallets.

A couple of days back, Binance observed huge netflows. The price moved positively afterwards so that it’s possible that the all exchanges reserve plummeting will make the price go up this time too.

Bitcoin Price

At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price is floating around $39.8k, up 24% in the last 7 days. Over the last month, the crypto has gained almost 15% in value.

Here is a chart that shows the trend in the price of BTC over the last 3 months:

After struggling in a range bound market for quite the while, Bitcoin has finally gained some of the volatility back. The rapid price swing of $34.5k to $39.5k was accompanied by the biggest short squeeze in the history of the coin as short sellers hurried to cut their loses.

The crypto is now testing the $40k resistance level, and if it can keep the rally up and push through, it’s likely that the » Read more
