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.

Mammoth-size trades

CoinMetrics claims that ‘a single committed trader’ concocted a plan to push the BTC price, and he successfully managed to do that by picking the time of the day when the global liquidity is at its lowest level.

The report also suggests that the trader started to execute his plan on HitBTC (500,000 USDT were traded for Bitcoin prior to the price movement). After that, large trades were observed on Coinbase and Bitfinex.

Focusing on the future

Meanwhile, as reported by U.Today, another theory states that the rapid price surge was triggered by the expiration of the CME futures contracts and heavy spot and over-the-counter buying. One expert went as far as claiming that a simple April joke about the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) could do the trick.

While no one is quite sure about what could have triggered the short-living rally, there is even a bigger disconnect when it comes to Bitcoin price predictions. While some share their bullish predictions for 2019, another report states that it could take 22 years for Bitcoin in order to match its current ATH of $20,000.
