This year, Christmas seems to be the time when various crypto projects are trying to make some final moves before the bearish 2018 expires.

On Christmas Day, the division of Singapore-based Huobi crypto exchange that is in charge of crypto derivatives trading announced that it plans to add the EOS coin to its trading service on Friday, December 28.

Huobi DM

This derivatives spring off was launched only recently, just about a month ago. It was presented at the Cryptofrontiers conference in New York City on November 28. The platform enables customers to trade crypto contracts on various coins. Back then, the division worked in a test mode. Now it is going to expand to EOS.

Among the recent things that have been reported about the Huobi exchange is that it is planning to cut down some of its staff along with the mining chip producer Bitmain and Ethereum startup ConsenSys. The companies say they are optimizing their business policy by changing priorities and focusing on new directions.

EOS performance in 2018

In the summer of this year, EOS became separated from Ethereum and its ERC20 token standard, launching its own mainnet. Currently, EOS is part of the top-10 club by market cap value. In the summer, the price of the coin exceeded $6. Then, when bears struck, the coin gradually hit the low of $1.74 in early December, if we talk about the recent movement.

Currently, the asset is occupying position #5 on the top-10 list and the rate is standing at $2.58. The coin’s market cap is $2 340 620 361.

The lion’s share of EOS trading volume is done on the OKEx exchange against USDT – 17.11 percent, with $194 927 570 volume within 24 hours. Huobi comes in position 4 after that, with the trading volume within 24 hours totalling $74 552 993 with 6.54 percent, also paired with USDT.

About a month ago, EOS managed to move to position #4 for a short time, pushing out Bitcoin Cash. One of the things EOS is criticized for is the numerous accusations of being centralized, similarly to XRP.

Benefits of this collaboration

The reps of the firms state that this cooperation will allow improving customer experience by giving users more trading opportunities.

BitMart founder and CEO Sheldon Xia has mentioned that partnering with Paxful will enable the exchange to attract new customers who previously had no access to crypto trading.

The CEO also added that working on one team with Paxful will let users have a better choice of payment options – gift cards, bank transfers, etc.

About Paxful

As soon as the buyer conducts a payment, he or she receives their Bitcoin from escrow directly into their Paxful storage space. Those who purchase pay no fees to the platform. It takes 1 percent of each deal from sellers.

The company reports it has one million active users from around the world on a daily basis.

EOS News - Litecoin (LTC) Now Supported by Coinbase Wallet, Users Ask to Add XRP

📰 News
Coinbase claims that this addition is an important step towards creating the leading cryptocurrency wallet on the market
Litecoin (LTC) Now Supported by Coinbase Wallet, Users Ask to Add XRP

Coinbase Wallet now allows its users to directly store Litecoin (LTC) in the app. Thus, the fifth biggest asset by market capitalization joins Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), and Ethereum Classic (ETH) on the list of supported cryptocurrencies.
Litecoin (LTC) Now Supported by Coinbase Wallet, Users Ask to Add XRP

The rollout is coming in a few weeks

The blog post states that Coinbase Wallet users will be able to download an update with Litecoin support in a few weeks on the App Store or Google Play Store respectively. Litecoin support will be available from the get-go once the app is updated. You will simply have to choose the ‘Receive’ option on the main wallet page in order to deposit LTC to your wallet.

Coinbase keeps snubbing XRP

The announcement was flooded with tweets from users asking Coinbase to add XRP. Everyone’s favorite remittance and settlement token is nowhere to be found on the roster of supported digital coins.

However, XRP was added to Coinbase Custody in November 2018, so one shouldn’t exclude the possibility that the crypto behemoth will eventually fully embrace this asset.

EOS News - Epic Games CEO Shows Support for EOS on Twitter

📰 News
Tim Sweeney fails to realize why everyone is freaking out about the rapidly growing size of the EOS Blockchain
Epic Games CEO Shows Support for EOS on Twitter
Contents

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has recently defended EOS on Twitter. The fact that Sweeney, the man behind such hit games as Fortnite and Bulletstorm, is interested in the fourth biggest currency by market capitalization is undeniably good news for adoption.

Forget About Steam — New Blockchain-Powered Game Store Gets 22 Publishers on Board

4 TB, 50 TB, 100 TB…

The EOS Blockchain is constantly growing bigger, and that seems concerning to many of its users. Bitcoin has a chain size of 200 GB while being around for more than a decade. Ethereum Blockchain, which was launched three and a half years ago, is at 140 GB. Meanwhile, there is a world of difference when it comes to EOS — its Blockchain has grown to 4 TB in only eight months due to its very fast speed. If EOS-based dApps see mainstream adoption, the chain will grow exponentially. That will create many challenges that pertain to storage solutions.

Not a serious issue

However, Sweeney believes that these concerns are unreasonable. In his latest tweet, he defended the EOS network by claiming that it’s completely normal for a global transaction ledger to require that amount of data. Shelling out $300 for an 8 TB hard drive every 16 months or so wouldn’t be a problem.

Back in January, there were numerous rumors that Epic Games had teamed up with Monero (XMR).  Sweeney swiftly denied the partnership, claiming that Fortnite's foray into crypto was ‘accidental.’

EOS News - Should Warren Buffett Invest in Bitcoin (BTC)? Anthony Pompliano Definitely Thinks So

📰 News
There is a ‘snowball in hell’ possibility that Warren Buffett, an ardent Bitcoin hater, will actually invest in Bitcoin
Should Warren Buffett Invest in Bitcoin (BTC)? Anthony Pompliano Definitely Thinks So

It’s been more than three years since Warren Buffett’s last big acquisition (which he likes to call ‘elephants’). As the 89-year-old billionaire is mulling over his next big buy, crypto evangelist Anthony Pompliano suggests that he could purchase Bitcoin (BTC).

Microsoft’s Bill Gates: You Should Not Expect Bitcoin to Go Up

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has a whopping $116 bln to spend, but he simply cannot find the company that would fit the set of his criteria. While Buffett is on the hunt for his next big target, Pompliano claims that Bitcoin would be his best bet. The number one cryptocurrency, according to Pompliano, will be able to generate more profit than all of Buffett’s investments for the next decade.

Wishful thinking

Pompliano’s comment was most definitely sarcastic given that the Oracle of Omaha is a well-known Bitcoin hater. Back in May, after the crypto bubble popped, Buffett called Bitcoin ‘rat poison squared.’ He also claimed that BTC is an asset that ‘doesn’t produce anything.’ Buffett’s vitriolic comments didn’t go unnoticed — as reported by U.Today, Genesis Mining trolled the billionaire with pro-Bitcoin billboards outside of his office.

Wishful thinking

Pantera Capital’s Dan Morehead also wasn’t a fan of the ‘rat poison’ remark, calling banks and credit card companies the rats.

Pension funds and endowment funds are now actively investing in the DLT and crypto spheres. A week ago, reports emerged in the media that several pension funds provided investments for the crypto fund set up by the Morgan Creek Capital venture company – adding up to a total of $40 mln.

The fund opened by Morgan Creek accepts money for investing from hospitals, insurance firms and universities.
