Investor: Ethereum DeFi Could Pump as Investors Dump “Ghost-Town” Coins

Decentralized finance has been branded as one of Ethereum’s — and crypto’s — killer use cases over recent months. But from a dollar perspective, this market segment has not seen as much market penetration as its proponents would believe is “fair.”

Yet while DeFi continues to gain steam as other blockchains seemingly stall, Ethereum and its coins stand to benefit greatly, an analyst has said.

Ethereum DeFi Could Benefit From Collapse of Smaller Altcoins

Referencing the discrepancy between the value of DeFi applications and “billion dollar ghost-town” blockchains, the head of DTC Capital Spencer Noon wrote:

“To put the difference between millions and billions into perspective: 1 million seconds is 11.5 days. 1 billion seconds is 31.7 years. With most DeFi project market caps in the millions, expect investors to start dumping billion dollar ghost-towns (ex. EOS, Stellar) for DeFi.”

This comment was made in reference to the growing sentiment that DeFi applications will grow exponentially while other blockchains may stall (relatively speaking) due to infrastructure issues.

Importantly, this may be a long-term investment thesis. DappRadar indicates that there are only a few hundred active users for DeFi applications like Uniswap, INDEX, Synthetix, and Aave.

It’s Happening Already — Ethereum Coins Are Surging

Noon’s thesis seems to be playing out already.

Over the past month alone, Maker (MKR) has exploded higher by 120 percent. MKR is the native cryptocurrency of the MakerDAO decentralized finance app, which is widely deemed one of Ethereum’s flagship applications.

MKR’s strong performance, which has allowed it to outpace Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the altcoins Noon mentioned, comes on the back of a number of positive trends.

The cryptocurrency was listed on Coinbase, demand for MakerDAO services has spiked, and there has been an overall increase in DeFi applications.

DeFi investor also noted that “DeFi as a sector has significantly outperformed the broader crypto market” since the start of the year.

Bitcoin Could Benefit From DeFi Boom… Temporarily

With DeFi coins strongly rallying over recent weeks, Bitcoin could outperform. Kelvin “Spartan Black” Koh, a partner at The Spartan Group and a former Goldman Sachs partner, remarked:

“We have seen a major re-rating in many of the smaller altcoins (esp DeFi ones) in the past 4-5 weeks while BTC has been range bound. At some point, the valuation of these alts will start to look frothy and the capital will flow back to BTC.”

This comment was made in reference to the concept that once altcoins become oversold, smart investors dump their digital assets for Bitcoin, which is relatively stable compared to altcoins.

Bitcoin-Themed NFT Card Set Launches On Anniversary Of Satoshi’s White Paper

Bitcoin Origins, a series of non-fungible tokens based on the history of Bitcoin, will officially launch on October 31 at 10:31 AM PT. With the goal of creating awareness about Bitcoin, the highly scarce NFT collection will highlight the most significant moments in Bitcoin’s history. Bitcoin Origins has partnered with amazing artists to recreate at least 15 moments in Bitcoin history. Today marks the release of Moment 1, the Whitepaper Creation, with more to come.

“Bitcoin and every other crypto has a marketing problem,” said Jeremy Born, CEO of CoinGenius and co-founder of Bitcoin Origins. “NFTs are a way to solve that and help push the mass adoption of Bitcoin. We’ve created unique artistic assets with an educational dimension to arm people with the knowledge about why bitcoin was created, why it exists, and why it will thrive and flourish.”

When it comes to Bitcoin Origins, it’s all there: Satoshi’s whitepaper, the genesis block––you name it. Each moment will be a little bit different. Each new card will be released as its own block. The first release is a 1MB block containing one card and the chance of receiving a bonus “Death Card,” which pays homage to the exaggerated reports of Bitcoin’s demise. There will also be 2MB and 4MB blocks for purchase which will become available once the 1MB block is fully mined (sold out).

Paul Jenkins saw the potential in Bitcoin and artwork surrounding the world’s first digital currency, and so he joined the Bitcoin Origins team. Jenkins, who shaped many of the characters which helped lift Marvel Comics from Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, sees NFTs as a new medium for storytelling.

“Bitcoin Origin is not just a history of Bitcoin––it’s a game,” said Jenkins. And the value is in the community. That is what made Bitcoin work: the value was in people’s perception of it. With Bitcoin Origins and NFT, we’re breaking new ground. There are new ways we can tell stories, and NFTs are a new form of storytelling.”

Said Born: “This is about the artistic nature of the piece. People hold these at high value, because it is a very scarce and limited set and is truly like holding a piece of Bitcoin history.”

Anyone can join the Bitcoin Origins story and play for free and receive a free NFT by simply filling out this form.

TRAMS DEX Propels Global Adoption of DeFi with Automated Market Maker (AMM) protocol

TRAMS DEX Propels Global Adoption of Defi with Automated Market Maker (AMM) protocol, as Industry Leader VIP Guests, Global Participants, and Management Team concludes Webinar Session Marking a Successful First-Phase Launch.

 

VIP Speakers Unanimously Acknowledge Perfect Market Timing of TRAMS DEX in Decentralized Finance Industry, High Industry Growth Factors, Following 2 Hour-Long Launch Session.

The TRAMS DEX founder and senior management team today concluded a high-impact webinar session as an official launch of its Automated Liquidity Provider protocol, the first of three phases for TRAMS’ Decentralized Finance Business. Industry leader VIP guests and participating members pledge support for open finance and Defi for creating more access to financial products at much lower costs to anyone on demand.

The launch took place in District Singapore, Republic Plaza 9 Raffles Place with a Zoom Webinar hosting a global Defi community and TRAMS DEX protocol members/users community. The discerning VIP panels and participants from ranging continents stencil the much-needed change in the financial sector especially in traditional banking plagued with corruption and scandals where only a small closed and selected groups are the main beneficiaries.

The webinar introduces the protocol with its open finance principles and guides participants into the operations with these key points: TRAMS DEX is one of three key operations from the TRAMS ecosystem with the main operating principle of Decentralized Finance (Defi). TRAMS DEX is an Automated Liquidity Provider that enables better and faster user interactions with digital assets. With the innovation of the Automated Market Maker (AMM) solution, traders can easily exchange digital assets at any time with guaranteed market supplies from the liquidity pool without giving up the custody of their digital assets. As a decentralized exchange, TRAMS DEX is able to create open access opportunities for participation without discrimination and any controlling institution barrier.

At TRAMS.io, anyone with an Internet connection and a Web 3.0 wallet can gain access to liquidity where otherwise would be ineligible through traditional finance or banking. TRAMS DEX operates a Decentralized Exchange that offers three (3) impactful functions with a minimal user interface designed for clear navigation.

The first function, global liquidity access or buyable, sellable, or tradable market access. Users of the protocol can easily gain access to “constant” liquidity with a simple crypto assets swap function at a minimal cost of 0.3% transaction fee. Direct wallet connections are automated as well with a few simple clicks. All transactions are secured with blockchain encryptions and conducted on-chain with transaction data records automatically recorded for open access viewing on Ether can in real-time.

The second function, make money from idle assets. TRAMS DEX creates a money-making model for liquidity providers (LPs) on the platform. By supplying idle crypto assets to any pools listed on the protocol, the LP earns a profit share generated from the swapping fees on TRAMS DEX. The liquidity provider profit sharing is proportional to contribution. Profits are calculated at least once every twenty-four hours (24 hrs). True to open finance principles and Defi, participating LPs can withdraw their contribution at any time without any fee or penalty.

Thirdly, earn a high passive income. The TRAMS DEX incentive model lets participants earn high passive income in the form of yields, calculated in APY% (annual percentage yield), simply by staking (or depositing) its native token (TRAMS) on the platform. This encourages participants to remain active on the platform and better maintains constant liquidity reserve. This translates to double benefits for participating LPs, more profits are added on-top of the profit-sharing earning from staking LP tokens on TRAMS DEX.

TRAMS DEX is accessible constantly 24/7 to anyone globally. All associated costs of operations are kept very low and precise by utilizing automated smart contracts and AMM trading algorithms for trade executions and operations. Compared to traditional financial institutions and banks, TRAMS DEX provides better, cheaper, more accurate services.

Bryan Feinberg of Plato Data Intelligence, the Founder/CEO of Etheralabs, commented from New York City via Zoom video call with the support of blockchain as the fundamental architecture of TRAMS DEX and Defi space which offers high data security and transaction transparency for users. As a member of the Blockchain Venture Advisory, he believes Decentralized Finance such as TRAMS DEX has a high adoption rate and direct use case for blockchain applications.

Mamadou Toure, Forbes 10 Most Influential person in Africa and President/CEO of Ubuntu Capital Group, tributes TRAMS DEX for providing access channel to liquidity where traditional banking and capital access are limited to non-existent. He further acknowledged the opportunities TRAMS DEX would create for users world-wide to easily finance business initiatives.

Victor Kong, CEO of VK Capital Digital Funds Pte Ltd endorses William Tien, TRAMS DEX’ Founder/CEO, for his vision and ambition in creating a Decentralized Ecosystem starting with TRAMS DEX following by TRAMS Finance and TRAMS Assets, for phase 2 & 3, respectively, as an alternative to private equity funds for real estates and infrastructure projects with a portfolio size of 1-10 million USD. TRAMS DEX removes the high barrier to entry by drastically reducing mandatory due diligence costs of raising capital, which remains the same as a 50 million USD project. He also credits the intention of listing the ecosystem, TRAMS DEX included, on the London Stock Exchange via reverse IPO within 3-6 months.
