End of Month Roundup: Cryptocurrency Winners and Losers in May 767

Top performing cryptocurrencies in May were Bytecoin, Zilliqa and Decred. While Cardano, Nem and Qtum suffered the heaviest losses.

As we pass into another month in crypto land it is time to evaluate May’s winners and losers. After solid gains throughout April, May was set to build on them and send crypto markets higher again. It didn’t happen and the bears regained control pushing them all back down again from highs on the 6th. May has largely been a month of decline.

Total crypto market capitalization has fallen in May from around $418 billion on the 1st to $328 billion on the 31st. This equates to a loss of 21.5% as 90 billion dollars flooded out of crypto and back into fiat. Since the peak in January, crypto markets had lost 60% by the end of May, around $500 billion. For the past 3 months they have been oscillating between $270 and $470 billion, unable to break out in either direction.

Bitcoin has played the pied piper and led the markets down falling from $9,200 at the beginning of the month to around $7,500 at the end of it. This represents a fall of 18.5% which is slightly less than that for all cryptos indicating that altcoins have had a worse time in May. Bitcoin trade volume has also fallen from around $8.5 billion to $4.5 billion during May; this has knocked its market cap down by 18% to $128 billion. Bitcoin’s market dominance increased marginally in May from 37.7% to 39%.

May Crypto Winners

An epic pump caused by a Binance listing made Bytecoin one of the very few cryptocurrencies that ended May at a higher level than it started. BCN made 19% in May from $0.0055 to $0.0065; in satoshi levels this privacy focused coin did very well climbing 53% from 58 to 89 satoshis. Bytecoin surged into the top 25 and ended May at 20th spot with a market cap of just over $1.2 billion.

Zilliqa is one of the few other coins in the top 30 that has ended May higher than it began. Up 10% from $0.010 to $0.011 ZIL was also listed on a number of exchanges which gave it the pumps. Against Bitcoin Zil climbed 36% from 1100 satoshis to 1500 satoshis, its market cap at the end of May was $830 million.

Decred also needs a mention as it gained 12% in May from around $80 to $90 at the end of the month. DCR made solid gains against BTC also rising 35% from around 920000 satoshis to 1220000 over the 31 days. Decred is ranked at 29th spot with a market cap of $660 million.

May Crypto Losers

Ethereum has not fared as badly as Bitcoin during May but has still lost around 16% from a trading level of $670 at the beginning of the month to $560 at the end of it. This had the result of knocking $11 billion off its market cap as all cryptos fell in unison.

Ripple’s XRP has taken a beating in May dropping 27% from $0.82 to $0.60. As usual the company continues to forge a way into the banking system with new partnerships but this has had little effect on its cryptocurrency price. If any token should do well it would be the one that is being used in real world situations and should be XRP with the xRapid system. This hasn’t been the case though for Ripple.

Bitcoin Cash began the month trading at around $1,300 and ended it 25% down at around $980. BCH peaked at $1,840 on May 6 leading up to its mid-month hard fork but this was not enough to stop the downward slide that followed.

EOS has dominated the news in recent weeks with the launch of its mainnet but this did not stop the coin shedding almost 30% in May. Starting out trading at around $17, EOS had fallen to around $12 by month end. Against Bitcoin however it has only lost 16% falling to 162000 satoshis at the end of May.

Litecoin has followed the rest of the cryptos by falling in May. No news has emerged for the world’s 6th most popular digital coin which saw prices plummet from around $145 to $117 during the month. The 20% loss is in line with the general fall in crypto markets during May.

Cardano took a heavy hit in May shedding 38% from $0.34 to $0.21. ADA is more volatile than most altcoins as it climbs quicker but falls harder, against BTC is lost 23% ending at 2860 satoshis. Likewise Stellar Lumens suffered heavy losses in May dropping 36% from $0.42 to $0.27. Against Bitcoin XLM fell 18% to 3760 satoshis at the end of May.

Iota lost 17% in May sliding from $1.9 to $1.57 over the 31 days.  Against Bitcoin however it remained stable at around the 21000 satoshi level, making it one of the few coins that did not lose out to BTC in May. Previously well performing Tron lost over 30% in May falling from around $0.090 to $0.062. In satoshi terms the loss was around half at 15% from 1000 sats to 845 sats over the month.

Neo took a pasting in May falling from $80 to $51 over the month. The dollar loss equates to around 36%, the Bitcoin loss was around 22% with Neo ending the month at around 700000 satoshis. Monero also got battered losing 34% from $235 to $155 in May, and Dash fell by the same percentage ending the month just over $300.

Nem got beat up in May along with the rest falling 38% from $0.39 to $0.24. VeChain lost 23% ending the month at around $3.40 and Binance Coin just below it shed around 10%. Ethereum Classic dropped 28%, Qtum got battered 40% falling from $22 to $13, and just outside the top 20 OmiseGO lost 37%.

Similar losses were suffered by Icon down 34%, Zcash losing 11%, Lisk down 32%, and rounding out the top 25, Ontology losing 21%.

The majority of cryptocurrencies fell in May, with only a handful of smaller ones doing well as major exchanges listed them. Overall losses in May were not as bad as March but most of the gains made in April were wiped out and markets were generally bearish at the end of the month. To summarize, the biggest winners in the top 30 in May have been Bytecoin, Zilliqa and Decred with Cardano, Nem and Qtum suffering the biggest losses.

MetaOne: GameFi is an untapped jewel in the making 1563

Marrtin Hoon, CEO of MetaOne shares his thoughts on how gaming industry has always been evergreen as gamers will always play games regardless of the global economic situation. In fact, more will find solace through the world of gaming. The hottest topic in town would be the evolution of GameFi, the fusion of the words “game” and “finance” which stands for monetization of the gaming experience. Making money playing online games has been around for some time, but with the emergence of GameFi since the 2020s, people are actually making a living by playing these games.

Despite all the hype, there is still a huge potential for community growth as making the switch from traditional gaming to GameFi requires effort, knowledge building, or in certain cases, cash.

Created by Gamers, MetaOne project is committed to reach out to this untapped community to shed the path towards GameFi by neutralising the transition barriers with their single interface platform.

The MetaOne platform highlights effortless onboarding with its one-stop guild management system that facilitates sign ups from all gamers and followers. Their integration with GameFi partners make BigData analysis possible with in-game insights that empower decision makers to execute secure cross-chain NFT activities via their Smart Contract protocol. The ecosystem within is looking forward to bringing tremendous benefit to all stakeholders while contributing to the GameFi space expansion.

“The market now is very turbulent but also gave us an opportunity to prove some key points. MetaOne’s key strategy has always been to convert this massive group of gamers to enter into GameFi through a credible platform that provides science and data clearly to them for making right choices. This will have material impacts to GameFi studios and ultimately the blockchain community,” said Marrtin, CEO of MetaOne, “We are so excited about communicating this vision to all geographical regions and realizing it into real executable plans where guilds, gamers, GameFi studios and users can see and feel the tangibles.”

Fundamentally, Metaone does not compete with Guilds, games, and online ecosystems but rather is a comprehensive enabler and force multiplier for the Gamefi space, integrating analytics, guild management, NFT asset management, and Game NFT activities that can be harnessed to empower these spaces plus changing how the industry operates.

Minto is Launching Autofarming For those Who Want to Earn More 2167

45645

Minto is announcing the launch of a new feature that will allow users to increase their income automatically by accruing compound interest. Minto has developed a smart contract with an automatic algorithm for converting received bitcoins into BTCMT tokens and their subsequent staking.

What is Autofarming?

As you know, there are two ways to earn on the BTCMT token: trading and staking. According to statistics, 2.15 million out of 2.5 million issued tokens, or about 86% of all tokens, are staked. Thus, most BTCMT holders choose to earn on staking.

Staking can be compared to an investment bank deposit: you invest money, and after a certain time, you get a larger amount with interest. In case of a bank, your deposit is used to issue loans to other people and companies, while in staking you trade Minto tokens for mining power (1 token = 0.01 THs) used to mine BTC. While the tokens are staked, they are used to mine BTC at real mining facilities.

Since staking rewards are paid out daily, and users who wanted to increase the capitalization of their investments have been withdrawing these funds, converting them into BTCMT and staking them again. Some users did it daily, some weekly, and some monthly.

On December 20, 2021, Minto held a listing on MDEX. Almost simultaneously with this significant event, the BKSwap service became available for BTCMT in the BitKeep wallet, which is the recommended wallet for working with Minto DApp.

As a result, the Minto team decided to automate the capitalization of token staking and created the Minto Autofarming service, which does it in an automatic mode. When employed, all daily staking income is converted into BTCMT tokens and sent back to staking, thus increasing the return on investment.

How will profitability change with Minto Autofarming?

As an example, let’s calculate how the staking yield could change if we started capitalizing tokens with Minto Autofarming in Q1 2022.

Income per 1000 BTCMT staked tokens for Q1 2022, provided the daily conversion of BTC to USD at the current exchange rate, amounted to US$307, which corresponds to an APR of 61.4%. Annual Percentage Rate (APR) shows the estimated annual return from staking with simple interest.

Revenue for Q1 2022 with simple interest: $307/1000 BTCMT, APR = 61.4%

Let’s assume that a user converts the received BTC into BTCMT daily and immediately stakes them in addition to the already staked volume. In that case, if you initially own 1000 staked BTCMT, you could accumulate additional 153 BTCMT tokens in Q1.

If daily income increased according to the compound interest formula, then after the first quarter thanks to the growing base it would amount to $486, that is, you’d receive additional $179. In this case, you should use APY to estimate annual profitability. Unlike simple interest, compound interest is calculated daily and its amount is immediately added to the balance. Every day, your account balance grows a little, as does the interest. Thus, the APY would be approximately 97%.

Thus, automatic farming is 1.5 times more profitable than conventional staking, totaling 97% vs. 61.4%, respectively. Note that these figures are valid for Q1 2022. Given the growing complexity of the BTC network and rate fluctuations, profitability may change over time (up or down). However, it is obvious that auto farming with interest capitalization will always be higher in terms of profitability than regular staking.

In addition, automatic farming saves users a lot of time: it’s easier to press a couple of buttons than to do everything manually on a daily basis.

The Minto platform offers its own computing facilities to mine BTC. Owning the company’s tokens (BTCMT) is equivalent to owning the respective mining capacity. By stacking BTCMT, the token holders receive a daily portion of bitcoins proportional to their share in computing power.

The project’s team is a collective of people from Europe spread across the whole world. Minto is founded by entrepreneurs with years of mining experience, with their headquarters located in Dubai, the UAE. Minto notes that the approach used to mine Bitcoin is eco-friendly, as its data-center is powered by a hydroelectric power plant, which complies with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the field of green energy. Using the energy of water, the plant allows to radically lower the carbon footprint caused by mining.

If you join Minto right now, you can still take advantage of the unique opportunity to buy BTCMT tokens at the best price. Start getting the maximum profits with Autofarming. Stay tuned, new updates are coming soon.

Kanpai Pandas: Bringing luxury experiences to the NFT space 2264

Imagine an NFT project that can bring you once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Front of stage tickets to EDC Las Vegas, booth seats to your favorite football team’s games, private parties with high profile crypto personalities… etc., and access to all these events and more can be yours just by holding a cute tattoo-clad panda.

Introducing Kanpai Pandas, one of the first Omnichain NFT projects in existence. A collection of 10,000 stylistically curated hand-drawn NFTs that roam 7 chains, including Ethereum, BNB, Polygon, AVAX, Fantom, Arbitrum, and Optimism chains (and soon to be 8 ).

Kanpai means “Cheers” in Japanese and reflects the light-hearted jovial nature that the project and community represent. The Kanpai Pandas’ prime objective is to bring REAL utility to its holders by building a solid brand that revolves around amazing real-world experiences and community building.

Kanpai Pandas isn’t only an NFT collection incorporating innovative blockchain technology. Holding a Kanpai Panda gives you a membership pass into an exclusive club that offers access to high-end events such as private parties, sporting events, concerts, and other sought-after entertainment events. Kanpai Pandas is building a family of like-minded people across the globe, creating a network effect where holders can build, collaborate, and learn together in the journey to making NFT history. Kanpai Pandas believe in building a sustainable long-term foundation through providing real-world utility and on-chain innovation.

So, what’s under the hood?

Kanpai Labs, the creator of Kanpai Pandas, built and released the project on LayerZero Labs’ technology. LayerZero Labs is an Omnichain Interoperability Protocol designed for message passing across chains, providing authentic delivery. Layer Zero has been funded by FTX, Binance Labs, Spartan, DeFi Capital, and various other strategic investment groups.

Kanpai Pandas sought to distinguish themselves in the NFT space by providing an art collection that incorporated cutting-edge interoperable blockchain technology. Building on LayerZero Labs technology, Kanpai Panda’s smart contracts became the new “gold standard” of omnichain.

The creator of Kanpai Labs, @DaRealMilkBagz, crafted a team of experts to provide utility to Kanpai Panda holders. Before mint, @DaRealMilkBagz announced three exclusive confirmed events where Kanpai Pandas could attend, details of which will be further explained in future Medium posts, but have already been announced on our Twitter (@KanpaiPandas). Kanpai Labs came out swinging to provide its determination in making Kanpai Pandas a lifestyle brand that provides many perks: exclusive social events, collectibles, comic series, and on-chain game theory (details about these perks will be further outlined in future Medium posts).
