Elastos is planned to be a platform for DApps, which will run on a peer-to-peer network with no centralized control. The platform is embracing the decentralized theme that is commonly associated with the crypto industry. Elastos users will be able to access these DApps via their mobile phones.

The main role of Elastos is to issue IDs for digital content by using Blockchain technology, making it possible to know who owns which digital assets. For example, on the Elastos Internet, filmmakers will know how many times their movies were viewed and this can be helpful to them.

Financials

The Elastos token sale ran from Jan. 2 to Jan. 23, 2018 and raised $95 mln. The token entered the market on Feb. 1 at $44 and surged upwards to an all-time high of $83.19 on Feb. 23, before beginning a downwards decent. It hit a low of $25 on April 9, before rebounding to $63 on May 5. However, like most of the crypto market right now, which is very bearish, the price sits at $9.40. The token price appears to be on an upward trend now. The market cap is still strong at $73 mln. There are almost eight mln coins currently in circulation with a total number of 32 mln.

Roadmap abrupt end

On the surface, it appears that the company has a lot going for it, including relatively strong token performance, given the current harsh market for all cryptos. However, a troubling feature is that there is no launch date. The roadmap details all the milestones back to May 2000! However, it ends on Dec. 18 with the note: “The mining of Elastos Chain and Elastos ID Chain by external nodes will be open and accessible.” This statement is a bit vague  because it is unsure if it means that the mainnet will be live and usable or if just that segment will be operational. Unfortunately, Elastos was unavailable for comment on questions such as this and for others. The Medium blog, which has had ongoing news updates almost every week, has not posted anything since the end of June. What’s up? Why the end of the news?

    Famous analyst PlanB published an interesting chart showing the four stages of Bitcoin’s market dominance. It appears that he predicts hard times for the altcoins!

Bitcoin’s Domination May Rise According to One Analyst
Cover image via u.today

With the last days of 2019 right around the corner, analysts and traders are getting the audience pumped for 2020 forecasts. The third Bitcoin (BTC) halving and Ethereum's probable migration towards its Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus will be hot topics for the crypto community. Prominent trader PlanB decided to surf this wave by showing BTC's dominating traction.

Four Stages for Dominance

In the historical chart, PlanB has revealed one of the most important indicators of the crypto world - Bitcoin's market capitalization. This indicator shows the ratio of BTC's market capitalization to the capitalization of all other cryptocurrencies tracked publicly by the available services (4000+ coins). This is used as a sign of comparative demand for altcoins and BTC.

Plan B showed the four stages of BTC's dominance, in which the graph is slipped vertically (bottom line indicates 100% BTC market dominance). The first stage, which lasted before April 2017, showed that BTC's dominance was more than 90%. The second stage (April-September 2017) showed that the figures were between 70% and 90%.

The third and the fourth stages repeated twice from September 2017 to the present day. In the early days of 2018, the indicator was at an all-times-low of 35%. Now, the graph is about to re-enter BTC's second stage with a 70+% dominance.

Altcoin Annihilation?

PlanB surrounded his picture with the ironic hashtag #altcoinannililation. Therefore, PlanB interpreted this traction as bad sign for the altcoins. It should also be said that some of commentators in PlanB's open thread suggest that the four-stage cycle was launched by the previous BTC halving of July 9, 2016.

Furthermore, we can see that BTC's high price correlates with its low market dominance. With that said, the publication by PlanB forecasts an extremely bearish start for 2020.

Recently, BTC advocate Tuur Demeester claimed that the price of BTC will drop one more time to $5,000. This level will be reached due to the capitulation of "weak" investors prior to the long bull rally.
