London, 6 November 2018: CryptoCompare, the global cryptocurrency market data provider, today published its monthly Exchange Review for October 2018, designed to offer institutional and retail investors insights into the cryptocurrency exchange industry.

The monthly review includes exchange trade data; order book and web traffic analysis; news highlights; exchange market segmentation; an overview of trans-fee mining and decentralised exchanges; information on volumes and pairs including Bitcoin to Fiat volumes; as well as exchange security and KYC requirements.

The Methodology: CryptoCompare’s Monthly Exchange Review evaluates the consistency and quality of exchange data, which is incorporated into CryptoCompare’s real-time Aggregate Index Methodology (the CCCAGG), used to calculate the best price estimation of cryptocurrency pairs traded across global exchanges. It aggregates transactional data from more than 70 exchanges using a 24-hour volume weighted average for every cryptocurrency pair. Constituent CCCAGG exchanges are reviewed and amended each month to ensure that the most representative and reliable market data is used in CCCAGG pair pricing calculations.

Key findings from the October review include:

- The top exchange by 24h spot trading volume was Binance with an average of just under 980 million USD, followed by OKEX and Bitfinex with volumes of 405 million and 368 million respectively.

- Spot volumes constituted less than three quarters of total market volumes on average (less than 7 billion USD) compared to futures volumes (3.2 billion USD). Within total spot volumes, exchanges with taker fees represent approximately 90% of the exchange spot market volumes, while transaction-fee based (TFM) and no-fee exchanges represent the remaining 10%.

- Bithumb saw a 356% spike in trading volumes from an average of 140 million USD to an average of 640 million USD after the 7th of October. This follows after the Singapore-based BK Global Consortium bought a controlling share in the exchange.

- Bitfinex saw a spike in volumes towards the 15th of October as the Bitcoin premium on Bitfinex vs Coinbase reached an all-time high of 11.28%.

- An analysis of the top 100 exchanges by 24h volumes suggests that a third of top exchanges store the vast majority of users’ funds in cold wallets (offline).

- If we look at the ratio of order book depth down to volume, we can rank exchanges by how immune to manipulation their markets might be. What we find is that, itBit, Kraken and Bitstamp have relatively more stable markets compared to exchanges such as CoinEx, ZB and Coinbene. 

- CoinEx, a well-known trans-fee mining exchange, has a significantly higher trade frequency and lower trade size than other exchanges in the top 25. This may point to algorithmic trading, given its almost 176 thousand trades a day at an average trade size of 125 USD. In contrast, Bithumb and HuobiPro had an average trade size of just under 3,000 and 1,500 USD respectively and significantly lower trades per day (12–18 thousand).

- According to a web traffic analysis using Alexa data, exchanges ZB and EXX showed significantly lower daily visitors relative to other exchanges with similar volumes. Both exchanges trade volumes in excess of 150 million USD per day, but attract no more than 700 visitors per day.

Solution to protect crypto assets by fighting fraud, scams, and malicious threats.

Singapore, 29 October 2018 — Sentinel Protocol announces the launch of the Interactive Cooperation Framework API (ICF API). After the successful launch of the UPPward Chrome Extension, a crypto scam protection solution, Sentinel Protocol continues to lead the crypto security industry by arming crypto exchanges and wallet services with its ICF API.

The new ICF API is designed to be integrated with financial software applications to proactively protect crypto assets belonging to organizations and clients from malicious threats. Before completing a transaction, the ICF API enables a financial application to query Sentinel Protocol’s Threat Reputation Database (TRDB) and check whether or not a specific crypto wallet address, URL, domain, or Telegram ID is safe. Within milliseconds, the TRDB sends a response. Depending on the type of response, a pending transaction can be immediately rejected and terminated; an alert or warning could be generated; or the transaction could be allowed if the alert level is low.

The key features of the ICF API are:

- Platform agnostic — can be used by any exchange, wallet, DApp, or application.

- Online access to collective security intelligence data held in the TRDB.

- Validated whitelists and blacklists of crypto wallet addresses, URLs, and domains related with malware, phishing, and scams.

While blockchain’s core technology has earned an excellent reputation for strong security, cryptocurrency assets continue to be stolen on a daily basis. Crypto exchanges and wallet services today have limited capabilities for preventing users from accepting or sending crypto funds to malicious addresses or for identifying malicious URLs associated with phishing and malware.

To address the above needs, the ICF API beta version will be made available to organizations by the end of October for testing and evaluation. The full production version will be deployed in early 2019.

Sentinel Protocol, is the world’s first crowd-sourced threat intelligence platform utilizing the advantages of decentralization to protect cyberspace with blockchain security. It aims to equip individuals and organizations with cybersecurity solutions that protect their valuable cryptocurrency assets from malicious threats, attacks, and fraud. Sentinel Protocol is headquartered in Singapore and has offices in Seoul, South Korea and Tokyo, Japan.

COINGECKO QUARTERLY REPORT Q3 2018

The full Q3 2018 Cryptocurrency Report by CoinGecko. Top highlights of the report: market dynamics and yearly market overview.

Total market capitalization has carried on its decline from Q2. Despite the downward pressure, market capitalization has been relatively stable in Q3 with trading volume growing.

Exchanges implementing trans-fee mining was a big trend in Q3. Trans-fee mining is the "mining" or creation of new exchange-based tokens via rebates of the exchange's transaction fees. The introduction of trans-fee mining have significantly changed the dominance rank for cryptocurrency exchanges in Q3 as compared to Q2.

A majority of news updates in Q3 relates to government regulation and mainstream adoption of blockchain technology. There is significantly less chatter around new ICO projects.

Despite the bearish market sentiment, there are still many project that attempted to raise funds via ICO. However, only half of them manage to complete their ICO with the average amount raised decreasing from $10.4 million in Q2 to $8.2 million in Q3.

CoinGecko collaborated with Masternodes.Online to produce a quarterly special with an insight into the growing masternodes space. The number of masternodes have been steadily increasing as investors seek alternative investment in this bearish market.

CoinGecko collaborated Nonfungible.com to take a deeper look into Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). With the introduction of Cryptokitties and the introduction of the ERC-721 standard, NFT have gain significant popularity in 2018 with transaction volume doubled between January and October 2018.

2018 GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN SURVEY: DELOITTE

Breaking blockchain open... Deloitte’s new global survey of more than 1,000 global blockchain-savvy executives from seven countries and nine industries is a leading indicator of where blockchain is headed.

While not quite ready for primetime yet, blockchain is getting closer to its breakout moment with every passing day.

Momentum is shifting from a focus on learning and exploring the potential of the technology to identifying and building practical business applications. It just may not be happening when and where we expected.

The global executives with excellent-to-expert knowledge of the technology we surveyed hold more pragmatic views and look poised to make some major moves over the next year. They see great value in blockchain’s potential to reinvent processes across the business value chain—and there is interest and investment in a wide range of use cases.

For example, 74 percent of all respondents report that their organizations see a “compelling business case” for the use of blockchain—and many of these companies are moving forward with the technology. About half of that number (34 percent) say their company already has some blockchain system in production, while another 41 percent of respondents say they expect their organizations to deploy a blockchain application within the next 12 months. In addition, nearly 40 percent of respondents reported that their organization will invest $5 million or more in blockchain technology in the coming year.

As more organizations put their resources behind this emerging technology, we expect blockchain to gain significant traction as its potential for greater efficiency, support for new business models and revenue sources, and enhanced security are demonstrated in real-world situations...

The international cybercrime prevention company Group-IB and the Swiss insurance broker ASPIS SA project - CryptoIns it platform-have developed a scoring model for assessing the cybersecurity of crypto-exchanges. The product allows you to rank the exchange on the degree of protection from external influences and calculate insurance rates of cyber risks for their customers.

The scoring model based on the assessment of Group-IB and CryptoIns specialists will be used in the calculation of insurance tariffs for clients of crypto-exchanges. According to Group-IB, the damage from targeted attacks on the crypto currency exchange in 2017 and 2018 the first nine months of the year amounted to $877 million. During this time it was hacked at least 13 trading platforms.

Security assessment takes Group-IB. Several indicators are taken into account: the level of technical security of the infrastructure, the reliability of key storage, the level of protection of passwords and personal customer data, the ability to withstand potential cyber threats, etc. Evaluation is made both on the basis of open data and with the help of specialized tests (for example, penetration from using social engineering techniques). In addition, an “incident map” is being built, consisting of factual information on all attacks on the stock exchange, attempts at fraud, data compromise, etc. For their part, CryptoIns experts evaluate the dynamics of trading volume, commissions, quality of traded assets and some other indicators.

On the basis of the data obtained, points are calculated that reflect the level of risk of the exchange in terms of potential damage from the activities of cybercriminals. The first group includes reliable exchanges that are least exposed to such risks. To the last, fourth-the most vulnerable. Based on this classification, the insurance rate for the customer is calculated. Insurance covers the risk of complete termination of the crypto-exchange as a result of hacker attacks and fraud on the part of employees and founders of the crypto-exchange. The insurance certificate is issued by a licensed insurance company Selecta Insurance and Reinsurance Company (Caribbean) Limited...
