Monero is ranked at number 12 in the market as of 12th May 2018. It is priced at $ 202.43 with market cap of $3,343,497,856 while Dash has a market cap of $3,272,533,581. Earlier today, Dash had surpassed XMR and took the 12th position, however, XMR bounced back in the past 1 hour with a 0.40% growth rate.

Dash has had a growth rate of 0.78% in the past 24 hours which beats Moneros growth rate over the last 24 hours which is around 0.19%.

Some of the investors speculate that the newly introduced XMRwallet which helps in faster and safer transactions and Circle adding Monero to its platform might end up being a waste if the coin continues its poor performance.

Dash has been growing its popularity due to its fast transaction speed and several new features like keeping users identity safe and fewer transaction fees etc. The coin has already reached the $1 billion point and many speculate that it might break into the top 5 of the crypto-rankings by the end of the year.

Jasmina, a Twitter user says:

“Time to invest into Dash, a really undervalued coin.”

Kelly, another Twitterati says:

“Monero is depressing me, I believed in this coin for so long but I think its time to pull out and join Dash as I heard that the community is active and good.”

‘The U.S SEC must regulate the cryptocurrency market to eliminate the bad actors’ – says Ran Neu Ner

‘The U.S SEC must regulate the cryptocurrency market to eliminate the bad actors’ - says Ran Neu Ner, the CNBC host

CNBC Fast Money, hosted by Melissa Lee, had Ran Neu Ner as the guest this time. Ran Neu Ner is a famous host of CNBC Africa’s Crypto Trader show and is the Founder of OnChain Capital.

The main topic of discussion was about “Is cryptocurrency market being manipulated?”

According to Ran, in the past, it was easier to manipulate the cryptocurrency market because there were a very few exchanges, a few on-ramps, and off-ramps. However, today with an overall market cap of $330 billion, it is a bit more difficult, because there are many exchanges and the volume of the digital currencies are much higher.

He also mentioned about the recent tweets that exposed a group, who is manipulating small penny tokens and how they got exposed for manipulating small e-liquid tokens.

Melissa further raised a doubt about how the market manipulation is occurring in deepest markets like London Interbank Offered Rate [LIBOR] and compared it with the U.S cryptocurrency market.

Ran mentioned that he is not sure about it, because the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] has not regulated Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Therefore, there are no regulated acts, under which the illegal terms can be questioned.

He says:

“what is the problem of driving the prices up? It is illegal in terms of what act? We are not a currency, not a commodity, we don’t know what we are.”

Further, they discussed, due to the uncertain market values of BTC and other coins, should the traders be cautious about what the SEC, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission [CFTC] or the U.S Department of Justice [DOJ] is going to look at.

Ran says, when the SEC and other organizations come up with regulations, it is going to open the floodgates for new money to come in. He thinks that regulations are eminent and he expects SEC to quote new regulations for cryptocurrency and hopes that everyone will follow it.

Also, he mentioned that he would encourage crackdowns because they can catch the bad actors who create a lack of trust. To obtain a real asset class with real people, eliminating bad actors is very important.

Ran believes that people across the U.S are waiting for the guidance of SEC and they have a huge part to play in regulating cryptocurrencies, while other countries are already looking into various aspects of cryptocurrency and have started accepting them.

A cryptocurrency enthusiast says:

Always an interesting conversation when it comes to manipulation. The #Silver market has had a conspiracy theory about being manipulated for more than 10 years.”

Anthony Matthew, a business analyst says:

“BTCUSD barely broke lower than 7500 all day, despite well-known news of cryptotrade manipulation and DOJ + CFTC investigation.  I feel like I am trading in the stock market again, so I am buying Bitcoin at 7500.”

A cryptocurrency miner named Chad commented:

“Maybe the DOJ and @CFTC will crack down on manipulative paid Roger Ver shilling appearances too”

On May 25, Justin Sun announced that TRON and vSport have come up with a partnership where the two companies can support each other in the development of the soccer industry’s blockchain technology by sharing content and creating communities that shall increase its reach.

vSport aims to build a sports ecosystem with cross-partnerships with leading networks’ like TRON along with authorized distributors of the World Cup and make payments easier and more scalable. This project is dedicated to creating a public chain for the Global Sports Industry. It is expected to be the world’s first non-profitable blockchain platform, involving tokens.

Qiang Bai, an artificial intelligence entrepreneur who is the mastermind behind the creation of vSport has paired with the famous Dutch footballer Wesley Sneijder. This collaboration also involves the world’s largest sports social media powerhouse 433, and China’s Sport8 which is a successful sports educational platform.

After the launch in Singapore, vSport co-founder, Wesley was quoted as saying:

“I believe Blockchain can help to bring balance to the economics of sports. That is why we launched our sports-chain project. I’m excited to see an open and decentralised sports community that focuses on fans first.”

Both the parties have come to an agreement on sharing its collaborative techniques, resources, and energy to create a decentralized web platform to make the blockchain technology more mainstream. The TRON community believes in rewards for all the people contributing to its progress. A special community is going to conduct an assessment of the participant’s contribution based on which TRX tokens, TRON merchandises like t-shirts and gifts will be offered.

Justin Sun, the Founder of TRON, has put out his views stating:

“Soccer is the biggest sport in the world. It has the largest fan base, and the community has always had a keen sense and great enthusiasm for new things. Combining soccer and sports in general, with blockchain technology will effectively expand community support for blockchain. This will provide people with an enhanced experience of blockchain and even change their lifestyles.”

He mentioned Wesley Sneijder, the former Netherlands national team footballer who Justin claimed to have helped in heading soccer-related projects off the field. He then spoke of him as:

“Wesley Sneijder, who not only helped the Netherlands dominate the field, but also has spearheaded soccer-related projects off the field. As a fast learner that embraces blockchain technology, it’s likely that Wesley will completely change the structure of the soccer ecosystem through this initiative. TRON very much looks forward to this partnership.”

Today he posted on Twitter saying:

 

The TRON protocol provides one of the most scalable operating systems in the world with its blockchain technology. It enables users with large-scale data transmission with a promise of more than 10,000 transactions per second. They also have the feature of smart contracts for crowdfunding and issuing more digital assets.

One Twitter user supports the partnership by replying:

vSport now holds a large traffic with more than 30 million sports enthusiasts and 15 million supporters from China. The 2018 Russia World Cup is scheduled to open on the 14th of June, gaining more importance in what was announced today. TRON and vSport will work towards creating a blockchain based ‘soccer results forecasting platform’ for better quality entertainment for its fans.

According to Qiang Bai:

“With sports models of the past, it is hard for fans to get rewards in exchange for their enthusiasm and contributions, which causes serious imbalance in the value structure. Collaborating with TRON allows us to join forces with another strong company, leveraging our soccer and sports resources to solve difficult soccer and sports industry-related issues. We will work together to build and nurture a healthy soccer and sports ecosystem. I believe this will be a great way to give back to soccer fans around the world.”
