I created a program that filters out potential risky investments and identifies market trends using technical indicators. I will be researching different methods to account for risk to hopefully avoid highly volatile cryptocurrencies and provide more reliable market signals. At the moment, Volume, RSI(Relative Strength Index), and EMA(Estimated Moving Average) are being utilized to help identify these trends. If you are interested in trying it out, I have launched the program on https://cryptohappening.com/signals. A screenshot of the working program can be seen below:

Always do your own research and only use technical analysis as a supplement as technical analysis is not 100 percent. The best way to look at the results is as a tool to help better understand what is happening in the market.

“Swachhcoin” is a decentralised waste management project which aims to create a global ecosystem to solve the problem of waste management by leveraging AI, Big Data, IoT and Blockchain altogether in sync with each other to develop a platform where individual users are rewarded for responsible waste disposal and existing waste management industries are equipped with state of the art technology enabling groundbreaking efficiency and operational capabilities.

For as long as one can recall, planet has been poised with the problem of too much wastes and lack of valuable resources. Various kinds of wastes are being produced and disposed off in an uncontrolled and unsustainable manner causing an irreparable damage to our environment. On the other hand, there is a huge global crisis of various valuable resources from electricity, biogas, rare earth metals to timber, paper etc. The important thing here is that, most of these valuable resources can be extracted from same wastes which are carelessly disposed off. Also, the waste processing industries are equipped with archaic technology which greatly limits their ability to process the wastes efficiently into valuable outputs.

“Swachhcoin” clearly has a disruptive vision of completely overhauling the waste management sector globally to overcome these issues through its sustainable, rewarding, profitable and technologically advanced ecosystem. They believe that waste is the greatest untapped resource present in abundance all around us and a lot can be done by the present and future generations to overturn the prevailing mindset of masses towards waste. “Swachhcoin” has brought together a number of advanced technologies that will work in sync with each other and will be offered to any existing waste management industry adopting the “Swachhcoin” platform. Some of the tools offered by “Swachhcoin” are: SWATA, SWATEL, SWIOT which stands for Swachh Big Data, Swachh Adaptive Intelligence, Swachh Internet of Things. There is also SWBIN and SWAPP, which stands for Swachh Bins and Swachh DApp. Individual users will be rewarded tokens for disposing off wastes in SWBIN thus encouraging proper waste disposal. The wastes collected from the SWBIN will be transferred to state-of-the-art processing facilities to extract useful products out of wastes which will be ultimately sold to bulk buyers in exchange for tokens.

Swachhcoin Foundation is a Non Profit Organisation backed by Industry Leaders at Community Tech Labs. Swachhcoin announced their project Contributors List and has informed that they will also be announcing the strategic partners very soon. They are also in talks with various organisation and government entities to undertake and implement their ambition of waste management. Furthermore, they are also in the process of establishing 12 Swachh Centres in 12 cities across India to promote the flagship campaign of the Indian Government named Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission).

“Our aim is to utilise waste to its maximum potential and produce resources beneficial for mankind. Not only this, responsible the waste disposer should also be rewarded for the role he/she plays in manufacturing the product of economic value.” Aditya Kumar, Founder and CEO.

Swachhcoin Announced its private sale for Institutional Investors and VC’s on 31st March 2018. Any one participating in the Private sale will need to complete the KYC process. The minimum contribution amount in the same is 20 ETH. There will be a huge pool of discount with lockup period. There will also be registrations opening for Public Presale which will have a reduced minimum contribution along with heavy discount for a limited amount of Allocated Tokens.

IOTA is a project that focuses on the Internet of Things. It facilitates free transaction processing system so that various micro-transactions between machines would be feasible. Learn more about its basics here. For example, in Bitcoin network, a low-value transaction like 100 Satoshi (the bare minimum unit of Bitcoin) would require a fee that is more than the value of the transaction. The same applies relatively to the cryptocurrencies that run on transactional charges. IOTA’s public ledger aka the underlying transaction system is based on a blockchain called Tangle. And in fact, Tangle ledger is a blockless chain. Simply put, the representation looks like a directed acyclic graph (DAG). Here, each transaction is linked to two previous transactions and two other transactions that happen later. Any new transaction coming in must approve two past transactions, and when the new transactions get two more approvals, it will be confirmed. As the new transaction maker supports previous transactions, he doesn’t have to pay any fee. Neither there is a special place for mining alone. Hence there is no chance for minting and distributing new coins. So, all coins are generated in the beginning.

Double Spending

The transactional approval process requires a small proof-of-work; similar to that of a Bitcoin network.Let’s take an example. First, the attacker will maintain multiple addresses. He pays a merchant, and the merchant decides the transaction is legitimate after the Tangle grows to a certain level. Thus he provides the goods and services.Now the attacker initiates a double spend transaction, and he uses his resources to make this transaction a legitimate one by passively approving them through creating secondary transactions. The inflow of legitimate transactions must be higher than the transactions generated by the attacker to avoid this attack. The attacker might even prepare the double spend transaction well in advance and would grow a sub-tangle around it. And initiates a transaction with the merchant where it grows with another sub-tangle. However, the users who want to set up a full node must use mutual tethering. That means they have to find the neighbor’s IP to join the network. And the attacker has to set up multiple nodes to manipulate the system. Without having a look at all the nodes, the attack becomes difficult. But at some point, the sub-tangle created by the attacker should merge with the mainchain. At this point, the other nodes will identify the fraudulent transaction. Even if the transaction is slid through, the weight (difficulty level of Proof-of-Work) will fall behind the current level. And they would never be considered for verification. So an attacker has to be fast and should have significant hashing power. Mathematically, as long as 67% of the network hash power is controlled by the good actors, who chose to build on legit transactions, the double spending problem will not be a threat. Anyhow, the network would see inconsistencies for a short period due to the incoming fraudulent transactions. That is similar to the 51% attack in the Bitcoin network, where if an attacker has the 51% of the present network hash power, he can ingest fraudulent transactions. Currently, there is a mechanism called Coordinator (Coo) to prevent the 34% attack scenario. Any node can check the activity of Coo so that it is not doing any malpractices having significant power in the network. However, as this kind of networks grow progressively, the cost of an attack would become massive. Thus it does not interest anybody to wage an attack.

Token Distribution

As all the tokens are created in the beginning, an ICO held in Nov – Dec 2015. And all the tokens were sold. The developers and founders did not hold any. And a part of proceeds from the ICO was used to establish IOTA non-profit foundation.

Who maintains a full node?

There is no mining reward. So one might be skeptical that who would maintain a node with all the data and contribute hash power when there is no incentive to do so. Unlike Bitcoin, IOTA has attracted companies that are looking into the Internet of Things. And there are people who believe in the technology. IOTA thrives with the help of volunteers. It is much like people running a TOR network node for which the network benefits them. There is a slack channel #nodesharing, and it is filled with the ever-growing IOTA enthusiasts.

Pros

  • No massive mining like Bitcoin, thus no wastage of electricity.
  • No transaction fees.
  • Highly scalable – The more the transactions, the faster the transaction confirmation time.
  • Quantum Proof
  • Strong Community

Cons

  • Depends on Proof-of-Work for security
  • Coordinator mechanism is required until the network grows to a substantial level

Conclusion

IOTA focuses on being a feeless payment system. Nothing fancy like smart contracts or smart assets.
