Cryptocurrency Market Drops to $241 Billion …

From $260 billion to $241 billion, the valuation of the cryptocurrency market has dropped by over $19 billion in the past 24 hours, as major cryptocurrencies including bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and EOS fell by large margins.

For a third day in a row, EOS, the delegated proof-of-stake (PoS) network based on the Ethereum blockchain protocol, has recorded the biggest loss amongst major cryptocurrencies. On June 24, EOS recorded a loss of 13 percent, while BTC, ETH, XRP, and BCH fell 3.5%, 4.6%, 5.8%, and 8.5% respectively.

Why the EOS Fall?

The decline in the price of EOS can be attributable to a wide array of factors but in summation, the reasons behind the major EOS drop can be shortened to two main components:

Abnormally large rally prior and after the mainnet launch
Recent controversy around EOS constitution and centralization
Yesterday, CCN reported that Cornell professor Emin Gun Sirer and smart contracts pioneer Nick Szabo criticized EOS for its bugs and characteristics that point toward network centralization.

Specifically, Szabo criticized the ability of EOS to suspend user accounts, confiscate funds, and auction accounts if user accounts remain inactive for long periods of time. Szabo stated:

“In EOS a few complete strangers can freeze what users thought was their money. Under the EOS protocol you must trust a ‘constitutional’ organization comprised of people you will likely never get to know. The EOS ‘constitution’ is socially unscalable and a security hole.”

EOS controversy intensified when EOS suspended 27 accounts with no reasons. In a document entitled “Emergency Measure of Protection Order (ECAF),” with abnormal authoritarian wording, EOS team said, “it is hereby ordered that the EOS Block Producers refuse to process transactions for the following accounts and keys indefinitely,” because the 27 accounts did not process transactions for long periods of time.

Prior to the launch of the EOS mainnet in early June, the price of EOS increased from $6 to $23.1, by more than 285 percent. The unexpectedly large increase in the value of EOS led the fall of EOS to intensify, and ultimately led the cryptocurrency to record a bigger loss than other major cryptocurrencies.

In the past month, the price of EOS dropped from $15.5 to $7, by 55 percent within 30 days. Since the price movement of most cryptocurrency and tokens are primarily influenced by bitcoin and Ethereum it is likely that EOS and other tokens will continue to fall in the upcoming days.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) of EOS remains at 27.8, demonstrating an oversold condition for EOS. But, in a strong downtrend, oversold conditions shown by the RSI is not sufficient to prevent the value of a cryptocurrency from falling.

  1. Does anyone know what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I cannot proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I have read in Vanity Fair that they were bought out by a UK hedge fund in excess of $50 million. I’ve just bought the Meditate Stainless Steel Water Bottle from Ebay and absolutely love it xox

  2. I operate a vape shop website directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that also offers for sale CBD product lines. A Month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape store web directory. We do not offer for sale CBD goods such as CBD oil. We simply provide marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a good look, you will see that they sell a pretty substantial series of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is administering double standards to many different companies. Due to this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment choices and now, I am greatly reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken to a solicitor from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is absolutely unlawful and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform criterion to all firms. I am still to check with an additional lawyer from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
