Verge [XVG] went through a terrible time as the price dropped by 17.19% in the last 24 hour period. The price has continuously dropped by 3.2% in the last one hour mark. At 8:30 AM UTC, XVG has a value of $0.055 with a market capitalization of $838 million.

XVG is currently positioned at rank 28 on Coinmarketcap and is followed by 0X [ZRX]. Almost all the cryptocurrencies have been struck hard with a falling moving average.

Dharan a crypto-analyst and a programmer responded to the bearish trend of the market:

“This seems like a uniform fall as the price is below the moving average, there are a lot of traders in the market who are selling. There is an observation in the RSI as the prices dropped out of the blue. Currencies like XVG, XRP, and XLM saw a massive blow”

He further said that as an investor himself he did not see this coming. The whole crypto-market is sunken deep below the ground after people sold their tokens. Despite Verge’s efforts to gain publicity, it has flopped, as the market is hugely portraying a bearish trend.

In a recent tweet by Abra, a global exchange platform announced that it has listed Verge [XVG], Monero [XMR], NEO and few new cryptocurrencies. In an additional note, it was specified that XVG can be directly bought by fiat instead of other crypto intermediaries. However, they also mentioned that as of now the XVG cannot be withdrawn it has to be converted to BTC then fiat.

Heidi, a Twitterati says:

“Who in the world is gonna use an exchange that won’t let you withdraw altcoins? C’mon!”

Buddu replies on Twitter:

“Have been using Coinbase. I will try this out. No doubt fees will be way less than Coinbase monster.”

A Redditor says:

“Price manipulation, not gonna sell my XVG to this pump&dump group. You never know when the prices might go up again. So keep HODLing keep faith.”

Another Redditor remark:

“Next week is Consensus 2018. Major news sources are saying it’ll probably result in another 75% price rise like last year. If I were a whale and I saw the market tanking, I’d join in in the hopes of lowering the price even further to buy back in lower prior to the event.”

‘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.”
