|Binance Retains Leading Position Among Crypto Exchanges Despite DOJ Fias...
Despite recent troubles, including a $4.3 billion fine settlement with the US DOJ and a leadership change with CEO Changpeng Zhao resigning, Binance maintains its position as a leading cryptocurrency exchange with a market share of almost 50%.
Binance's market share briefly dropped to nearly 40% following these regulatory issues, but the exchange continues to dominate among 23 other marketplaces.
Binance recently decided to delist four cryptocurrencies, including BitShares and Tornado Cash, effective December 7, leading to significant price drops in some of these tokens, with PERL falling around 65% and TORN by 50% in the past week.
Binance Keeps Its Solid Position
The troubling recent news surrounding Binance seems to have not affected its position as a leader among all cryptocurrency exchanges. According to data presented by Kaiko, the trading venue has kept a market share of less than 50%, with the remaining percentage belonging to 23 other marketplaces.

It is worth noting that Binance's market share plunged to almost 40% a few days ago when the company settled regulatory issues with the US Department of Justice and agreed to pay a whopping fine of $4.3 billion. Moreover, the former CEO of the organization - Changpeng Zhao (CZ) - resigned from his post, with Richard Teng taking the helm.
Binance's Recent Amendments
|Binance Listing Curiosity: Is the Exchange Switching Tactics?
Binance is seemingly adopting a new strategy by listing certain assets for futures but not spot trading.
The exchange recently settled a $4.3 billion fine with the US DOJ and underwent a leadership change, with Richard Teng replacing CEO Changpeng Zhao.
Binance's recent delisting of several cryptocurrencies, including BitShares and Tornado Cash, due to low activity and volume, has led to substantial price declines for these assets.
Binance is Expected to Continue Operating a 'Similar Model'
The popular reporter using the X (Twitter) handle Wu Blockchain observed an interesting tactic that the world's largest cryptocurrency - Binance - might have adopted.
He revealed that the marketplace had listed certain digital assets for futures trading but not spot. Those include KAS, BSV, PYTH, BONK, ORBS, BIGTIME, TOKENFI, and ETHW, with Wu Blockchain describing the move as a 'new phenomenon' in Binance's listing process.
'Analysis pointed out that the core reason is that this can earn fees without taking on excessive responsibilities. Contract users have a strong tolerance for ups and downs, while spot users will criticize the price drop,' the reporter said.
In addition, the reporter claimed there are cryptocurrencies like Blur (BLUR) that 'have been alive for a long time, then the spot launched.'
He explained that futures trading is much simpler than spot one as it does not involve holding tokens or 'technical matching.' In their view, Binance would continue to oper...

Binance Delisting Announcement: Binance will delist BitShares, PERL.eco, Tornado Cash, and Waltonchain on December 7 due to factors like low activity and unethical conduct, impacting their market performance.
Price Impact: Following the announcement, Waltonchain, Tornado Cash, and PERL.eco experienced steep price declines of up to 45%.
Contextual Developments: This move follows Binance's recent delisting of ten trading pairs and significant organizational changes, including discontinuing BUSD support and a $4.3 billion settlement with the US DOJ, coupled with a change in CEO.
Binance's Latest Delisting Efforts
The world's largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume - Binance - announced it will delist BitShares (BTS), PERL.eco (PERL), Tornado Cash (TORN), and Waltonchain (WTC) from its platform.
The amendment will become live on December 7, with the exact trading pairs being removed: BTS/USDT, PERL/USDT, TORN/BUSD, WTC/BTC, and WTC/USDT.
The reason behind the delisting seems to be a variety of factors, such as reduced level of development activity, low trading volume and liquidity, evidence of unethical/fraudulent conduct or negligence, and others.
The disclosure has negatively harmed the prices of the aforementioned crypto assets, with some experiencing double-digit declines. WTC has plunged by 35% for the past 24 hours (per CoinGecko's data), TORN has dropped by 40%, while PERL has collapsed by 45%.

|Cardano Founder Debunks Rumors Of Stablecoin Djed's Shutdown
In a definitive response to swirling rumors regarding the possible discontinuation of the Djed stablecoin, Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano, firmly stated that not only will the project continue, but it will also receive a significant upgrade. 'No, we aren't dropping Djed. We are supercharging the team,' he announced.
Cardano Developer IOG Doubles Down On Djed
Djed, an overcollateralized stablecoin by Input Output Global (IOG) and COTI has been under scrutiny due to its unique financial mechanism recently. Specifically, the stablecoin uses Cardano's ADA token as a reserve, aiming to maintain a circulating supply backed by four times the number of its outstanding coins.
While designed to provide enhanced security and stability for its users, recent metrics indicated the reserves had decreased to 356%, prompting a temporary suspension of minting new Djed tokens.
In the midst of this, IOG issued a series of statements indicating structural changes and expansions. Hoskinson tweeted about the addition of Sean Ford, noting, 'Glad to welcome my good friend Sean Ford to the IOG family.' This was in conjunction with IOG's formal announcement, detailing the appointment of Sean Ford as CEO and David Markley as COO of a newly formed subsidiary concentrating on the stablecoin sector.
Ford's credentials in the technology sector are quite noteworthy, having been part of the founding team at Algorand where he served in both COO and CEO capacities. Additionally, David Markley, before jo...
|What Are Stablecoins? A Simple Explanation of the Digital Asset Bridging...
Stablecoins occupy a unique space within the realm of finance, straddling the worlds of traditional and cryptocurrency finance. These digital assets aim to achieve price stability by tethering their market value to external references such as fiat money. Stablecoins blend the characteristics of cryptocurrencies with the stability of traditional assets like the U.S. dollar or commodities such as gold, resulting in digital tokens with limited volatility. By stabilizing their purchasing power, stablecoins offer a level of reliability currently absent in pure, decentralized cryptocurrencies. Let's delve into what stablecoins are, the various types available, and their origins.Stablecoins: Bridging Crypto and Fiat for Price Stability
Today, the bustling stablecoin ecosystem boasts an impressive total value of $123 billion, encompassing numerous projects. Having been a prominent presence in the financial landscape for nearly a decade, stablecoins have firmly established themselves as pillars in the crypto universe.
Leading the market in terms of capitalization are renowned stablecoins such as tether (USDT), usd coin (USDC), dai (DAI), trueusd (TUSD), and binance usd (BUSD). Stablecoins aim to achieve price stability by pegging their market value to external references, such as fiat currency or commodities. These digital assets blend elements of cryptocurrencies with traditional payment and value storage methods, offering a form of price reliability.

|Modhaus Prepares Launch of tripleS, First Fan-Directed Web 3 K-Pop Group
[PRESS RELEASE - Seoul, South Korea, 28th September 2022]
Modhaus has completed an NFT-based voting process, called Gravity, that will define the member composition of the first K-Pop group directed entirely by fans.
tripleS is the first ever K-Pop group to use blockchain technology to cast votes for a real-life artist. By using blockchain technology, Modhaus hopes to give fans more power by being fully interactive with its fans. It does so by leveraging NFT governance, allowing tripleS NFT holders to choose the subgroups of tripleS and the individual members of each group from the very start.
The first Gravity of tripleS lasted from Sept 21 to 25, with the 8,000+ NFT holders voting 4,417 times and the event generating 4,728 transactions on Polygon overall.
Unlike other K-Pop votes in the past, Modhaus’ voting structure is unique in that fans can participate via the purchase of tripleS NFTs. One NFT automatically generates one voting token, or COMO, which enables fans to cast their vote. During this Gravity period, a total of 10,774 COMO were used.
The vote decided the composition of two sub-units, Acid Angel from Asia (AAA) and +(KR)ystal Eyes (KR). AAA represents a completely new dance style from the current K-Pop genre, while KR is a more “traditional” K-Pop experience with dynamic sounds and flamboyant style. So far 8 members have been revealed, but tripleS will eventually hold votes for 24 of them.
Modhaus is a unique project that seeks to export K-Ente...
|Top 10 PoW Dominance Evaporates 9 Years Later, Only Two Proof-of-Work Co...
The crypto community is patiently waiting for the highly anticipated Ethereum network upgrade from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS) as The Merge is expected to happen 27 days from now. After Ethereum transitions from PoW to PoS, only two crypto assets in the top ten market cap rankings will be PoW tokens, which is a stark contrast to the top ten nine years ago. The PoS Age Begins: Proof-of-Work Crypto Assets Disappear From Top Ten Market Cap Standings
This year, for the first time in crypto history, three stablecoins entered the top ten largest market cap positions. During the first week of May, Terra's stablecoin UST made it into the top ten alongside USDT and USDC, but after UST's depegging incident, the token fell from the top ten coin rankings. After UST's implosion, the Binance Smart Chain-issued BUSD stablecoin joined the top coins by valuation and today, three stablecoins remain in the top ten.
That wasn't the case nine years ago, on August 18, 2013, as there were no stablecoins in the top ten, because the stablecoin trend was not prevalent at all back then. In 27 days, Ethereum will change from PoW to PoS after operating as a PoW chain for seven years, and when that happens, only two coins in the top ten will be PoW tokens. The last standing top two PoW crypto tokens in the top ten will be bitcoin (BTC) and dogecoin (DOGE). This trend was also not prevalent nine years ago in 2013, when the top ten crypto tokens were mostly PoW coins.

|GameFi as a major achievement of the Korean Wave (Hallyu) movement
July 15th was a music milestone. Ten years ago in Summer 2012, the release of “Gangnam Style,” catapulted South Korean singer and rapper, PSY to stardom as the song instantly became a global hit.
Captivating listeners with catchy lyrics and an animated music video featuring the iconic horse-riding dance, Gangnam Style hit the unprecedented 1-billion views mark on YouTube just 159 days after its premiere.
The song’s immense popularity and rapid global reach quickly thrust Korean pop culture into the international spotlight, a phenomenon known as the “Hallyu” or Korean wave movement. The phrase emerged to encapsulate South Korea’s influence in exporting its popular culture, media, and even cuisine into the global cultural economy.
U.S. President Barack Obama even referenced the Korean Wave in a 2012 state visit to the East Asian nation.
Hallyu Gains More Momentum Amid Work By Plenty Of Korean Creatives And Innovators
Plenty of Korean artists continue to follow in the footsteps of PSY in shifting the global music scene. K-Pop acts like BTS and Blackpink remain massively popular and are considered positive examples of South Korea’s cultural exportation. In early August 2022, Blackpink announced details of their performance in Abu Dhabi in early 2023 as part of its “Born Pink’ world tour.
Hallyu’s also made waves within gaming. Some may even argue that games built the foundation for the Korean Wave due to the popularity o...
|What's New in Megaverse: Developments, Updates and More
PRESS RELEASE. Celebrity-fan interaction in the metaverse is at its nascent stage. However, a few recent past events are tell-tale signs of a tectonic shift happening on the fan-engagement front. It's moving from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 with metaverse as its building block.
The Paris Hilton virtual world inside Roblox has seen significant footfalls, even considering the hefty price people need to spend to enter that world. A mega-fan had apparently paid $450,000 to buy a virtual land beside Snoop Dogg's digital mansion on Sandbox.
Metaverse offers fans the chance to be in the same neighborhood as their favorite celebrity or public figure in a fully immersive setting, a thing not possible in the real world. That is why role-model adoration has a strong possibility of taking place in the metaverse.
Leading this movement from the front line are projects like Megaverse that are poised to bring the world's most active communities around sports, entertainment, and more to a VR space where they are not only admirers but equal shareholders.
Mega Token Fuels the Megaverse DAO Ecosystem, Public Sale to Soon Begin
Mega Token is the platform and governance token of the Megaverse ecosystem-a universe made up of communities that are represented by plots of virtual lands.

|How NFTs and the Metaverse Can Help Save the Planet
The head of a leading South Korean cryptocurrency exchange has recently promised that its non-fungible tokens featuring the world-famous K-pop band BTS will be minted by 'low carbon, eco-friendly' technology after receiving backlash from environmentally conscious young fans about the energy use of NFTs. Wait a minute, environmentally conscious people. NFTs and the metaverse are not environmentally unfriendly technologies. To the contrary, they can save the planet and bring humankind a much greener future.The Crypto Mining Required for Minting Supports the Development of Green Energy
South Korea is not only among the leaders of the global cryptocurrency and blockchain race - the fans of South Korea's most successful, world-famous K-pop band BTS are also very educated on the subject. When Hybe, the entertainment company that manages BTS, announced that they would issue BTS-themed NFTs that will play music, the reaction of the fans was not 'what is an NFT,' but rather 'NFTs are not eco-friendly.' Sirgoo Lee, CEO of Upbit's operator Dunamu which is in a joint venture with Hybe, had to promise in response that Hybe would use 'low carbon, eco-friendly' technology to mint the NFTs.
The controversy surrounding the environmental impact of crypto mining and minting NFTs is mainly centered on energy consumption. But in fact, many crypto mining farms tend to be located in low-temperature, high-latitude countries where electricity is much cheaper and is generated from renewable sources su...

|TG DAO 3.0: How a Truly Decentralized Organization Works
The first principles of forming a DAO organization were created by Stan Larimer in his work, 'Bitcoin and the Three Laws of Robotics'. Following that, in 2015, The BitShares project was created in accordance with those principles. Back in 2016, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin also professed the importance of DAO. Nevertheless, until today, no single DAO is fully decentralized and independent, because most tokens are in the hands of their founders, which means they're the ones making key decisions. 'The TG Ecosystem project has attempted to build a true DAO. We've already launched the TG DAO 3.0 Launchpad and this year, we're launching a social network, marketplace, secure cryptocurrency wallet, an in-house financial system, and more,' said TG Ecosystem CEO Eugene Melnyk.
How does this organization differ from others of its kind? Does the infrastructure of the TG DAO 3.0 Launchpad really support complete decentralization? Read on to find out.
A gradual transition from centralization to decentralization.
'In 2021, a team was formed that went on to successfully complete the first phase of project development. 1.8 million BUSD were raised and over 150,000 participants were gathered. Now, the TG DAO 3.0 Launchpad is continuing onwards to its next stage of development: forming a team that will finalize the project's transition to DAO status,' the company affirmed.
The project's development plan includes a phased transition from centralization to decentralization, and this can be s...
|Daniel Larimer Introduces the Fractally DAO to Deliver EOS' Origin...
Popular software programmer and co-founder of BitShares, Steem, and the EOS network, Daniel Larimer, recently announced the rebranding of his earlier endeavors.
Daniel Larimer Shares New Vision
In a press release shared with CryptoPotato, Larimer noted that his new vision, dubbed Fractally, will deliver the original EOS vision of 2017 to the modern crypto market.
He claimed that Fractally will be a unique blend of a decentralized exchange, a social media platform, a high-performance smart contracts network, and decentralized governance processes.
According to Larimer, the new project will be built on the lessons he has learned from his previous ventures, including one of the first and highest performance decentralized exchanges, BitShares, and the first decentralized social media, Steem.
Back in 2013, Larimer invented the concept of a 'Decentralized Autonomous Company (DAC),' upon which BitShares was built. Currently, the term DAC is now popularly referred to as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).
Using BitShares, anyone can create, distribute, and exchange tokens with a simple user interface with no coding experience. However, according to Larimer, Fractally will bring something even better.
Becoming the DAO of DAOs
Larimer noted that Fractally will produce an EOS-based application that is 'just as powerful and even easier to use while also incorporating more recent advancements in automated market makers.' In a recent tweet, he stated that Fractally will become '...
|Samsung Provides a Glimpse Into the South Korean Metaverse and NFT Craze
At the very beginning of 2022, South Korean tech giant Samsung announced its foray into the metaverse and a new 'NFT Aggregation Platform' designed for its smart TVs. In addition to the NFT TVs, Samsung also launched a virtual experience inside of Decentraland, one of the most popular metaverse gaming platforms. It's high time we had a peek at the South Korean NFT world to see the latest developments.
Samsung NFT TV and Presence in Decentraland
The idea of the metaverse is no longer the distant, dreamy vision shared only among a limited number of crypto veterans it once was. From the moment Facebook re-invented itself as 'Meta,' a few more tech giants around the world followed in the company's footsteps and made some bold movements to venture into the metaverse space.
On January 18, 2022, Microsoft announced the acquisition of Activision Blizzard for a valuation of $68.7 billion USD in an all-cash transaction. Half a month before that, the South Korean tech giant and conglomerate group Samsung Electronics announced three brand new TV models for 2022 that host an 'intuitive, integrated platform for discovering, purchasing and trading digital artwork'.
