  1. ICO coin & crypto in 2018
  2. The country of fire and ice accounts for 3% of the world's mining volume — a colossal figure, given that only 340 000 people live in Iceland. For comparison, the European Union produces 5% of the total cryptocurrency, in Georgia — 6%, in the US and Canada — 16%, in China — 60%. In February 2018, the representative of the Icelandic energy company HS Orka Johann Snorri Sigurbergsson in interview "Bi-bi-si" said that the rapid growth of mining in Iceland and the commissioning of new farms can lead to interruptions in the supply of electricity. According to his forecast, already in 2018 mining capacity will consume more electricity than the entire population of Iceland (households spend an average of 700 GWh per year, and data centers and cooling systems can reach 840 GWh per year). A significant share of mining in Iceland falls on the Enigma crypto farm. According to Huffington Post, Enigma ranks first in the world in terms of production volumes of Ethereum. Iceland's popularity among miners is primarily due to the low cost of electricity — an average of $0.043 per kWh, which is several times less than the average level in the European Union. So, on one of the Icelandic mining farms, the filling of mining hangars is quite monotonous — it's multi-level racks, densely Packed with rumbling computers. At the entrance to each room with equipment prudently hung flask with colored earplugs. In one hangar mined bitcoin, the other-Ethereum. Near the hangars for mining Dash, Litecoin, Monero and Zcash...The hangars are a bit further with utility room and small workshop here in neat rows on the tables laid out of the video card.With clear regulation, mining could well become a major source of income for Iceland. Mining remains a profitable business — a typical Antminer S9 device now brings up to $8 per day, consuming about 30 kWh per day. The cost of electricity is $ 1.3, that is, there is a minimum of $6.7. Even with the cost of wages, Internet, depreciation of farm devices is still in the black. And besides, mining in Iceland can be considered as export of the electric power.
  3. This is true, although, now and without much news, the cryptocurrency market is going through hard times and few people understand where this cryptocurrency market is still alive and where it is no longer...(((
  4. The situation on stock exchanges: On may 1, Bitfinex announced support for the cryptocurrency Stellar and Verge, as well as BitcoinInterest PoC (fork of bitcoin), and moved the tokens ERC20 TRX on the public blockchain TRON. On may 15, three updates on the us exchange Poloniex will come into force. Starting from this date, commissions, whose size will be reduced to 0.20%, will be calculated on a 30-day trading volume in us dollars, not in bitcoin. Also, the exchange will reduce the 30-day limit of trading volume required to get the discount. The cryptocurrency exchange Kucoin intends to transfer tokens with a small volume of trade into a "special regime", which means the first step on the way to delisting or the final bath, although the assets will be given a chance to "postpone the sentence". Coins moved to the "special mode" zone will be marked accordingly so that traders can know that there is a risk of removing them. Thanks to the clearly spelled out legal norms in Malta, whose authorities recently announced that they intend to create a cryptocurrency-friendly regime, now accounts for the largest share of world trade in cryptocurrencies, although this country ranks only 22nd in the number of registered cryptocurrency companies (a huge volume of trading it provided primarily that the Binance exchange moved operations from Hong Kong to Malta). Investment and business: Messenger Telegram suspends its ICO and will not hold an open tocancel. This was reported by the Wall Street Journal, citing an anonymous source. As the reasons for the cancellation are considered as more stringent rules of the regulators with respect to ICO. Another reason may be that Telegram has already raised enough money for a closed sale and no longer needs an open ICO. Peter Thiel invested $ 15.5 million in the bitcoin startup Tagomi Systems, which plans to serve orders for the purchase and sale of cryptocurrencies, providing brokerage services to institutional investors and family investment companies. Goldman Sachs, the world's largest investment Bank, will start offering bitcoin futures. The Bank is planning to launch this project on a modest scale, starting with a limited set of derivatives without direct bitcoin trading. BMW, Ford, GM and Renault have joined forces with technology providers and start-UPS to form the largest in the history of the blockchain-the consortium in the automotive sector. A project called Open Blockchain Mobility Initiative (MOBI) plans to create a common standard for distributed register (blockchain network) and software interface for payments and ensure the communication between vehicles, organizing so a new ecosystem of digital mobility. Opinions and estimates: In the annual letter to investors co-founder of Google Sergey Brin said that the growing demand for mining industry in terms of computing power, along with other factors caused a "boom in computing resources". Currently, Google is studying the prospects of blockchain technology and carries out its own development. Co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian predicts that in 2018 the price of Ethereum will reach $ 15,000. By the way, payments for a premium subscription to Reddit will soon be available again in cryptocurrency (not only in bitcoin, as before, but also in air and litecoin). Cai Wensheng, the founder of Meitu, said in a recent interview that he had a goal to buy 10,000 bitcoins, which he was able to achieve thanks to the fall in the rate in 2018. In its new annual report, the international monetary Fund concluded that cryptocurrencies do not threaten the stability of the global economy. Also in cryptocurrencies did not see a threat to the Hong Kong police and the head of Europol Rob Wainwright. Cryptocurrency trader and bachelor of Economics and Finance Vatican Mahalingam in his article introduced the concept of hardspun ("spoons"), as opposed to the hard forks ("fork") and explained why it is relevant to many protocols and projects of the blockchain. Regulation: In the prevention of money laundering and other criminal activities of the financial services Agency of Japan (FSA) is secretly putting pressure on the crypto currency exchange that they refused from transactions with Monero (XMR), zcash for (ZEC), Dash (Dash), as well as other crypto-currencies c increased anonymity. A working group of regulators, including high-ranking officials from the SEC and CFTC, will discuss on may 7 whether ether can be considered securities and its legal status, as it is believed that ether is in the "grey zone" and its establishment in 2014 was an illegal sale of securities. However, the SEC does not plan to ban ICO-projects and considers options for the legalization of investment activities in the cryptocurrency sector. Against Ripple filed a class action alleging that the company from San Francisco "from scratch" created billions of coins and profited from selling them to the public during the "endless ICO". The plaintiffs believe Ripple violated state and Federal laws by offering unregistered securities to retail investors. New amendments to the Belarusian decree "on the development of the digital economy" provide that cryptocurrency exchanges will be obliged to disclose their data and identify customers. Will be introduced a procedure of verification: the exchange will be to compare the identification data with information from social networks and databases of third parties. in addition, the operator will be required to track the address of the Internet Protocol of the user. All information about clients and transactions will be stored on the exchange for at least five years. Soon, members of the national Assembly of South Korea can discuss the long-awaited bill that will lift the ban on ICO. However, this is not a complete lifting of the ban: the bill only proposes to allow the activities of ICO initiated by research centers and the public sector. Other events in the world of crypto business: The website CoinMarketCap rebranded and Creator of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin published a study of the concept of sharding — updates to the blockchain of Ethereum. Also, OpenBazaar is preparing large-scale updates to the p2p trading platform, which recently received investments from Bitmain. The last one this week announced a new asik called Antminer Z9 mini, working on the Equihash algorithm, which is used for mining cryptocurrencies Bitcoin Gold, Zcash, ZenCash and Hush. The Australian branch of the organization UNICEF launched the website the Hope Page, which mines cryptocurrencies due to the computational power of visitors. The non-profit organization said that the site "will allow Australians to help vulnerable children simply by opening a page while they are online."

  12. The head of the technological development Department of the investment Bank Goldman Sachs Sheba Jafari informed the organization's customers that if the price of bitcoin does not hold short-term support at $9 210, the probability of falling to a February low of $5,922 and below will increase, Business Insider reports. In the report, analysts stressed that the changes in the rate can be caused by excessive influence on the part of investors. Most likely, the new users will have a great impact on the price of cryptocurrency. However, the Bank's forecasts do not always come true. The Jafari Department has already issued a warning to customers, urging them to monitor the value of bitcoin, predicting a decline to $7198, the Cointelegraph reports. In the January report Goldman Sachs said that the growth of cryptocurrencies has already gone "beyond the" bubble "and cryptomania outshines not only the" bubble " dotcom, but Tulip 1634-1637. However, this statement Goldman Sachs supported the General mood among the majority of bankers who hold the same opinion. The cryptocurrency market has been growing exponentially since the beginning of 2017. At the same time, the capitalization of the cryptocurrency market as a whole and bitcoin dominating on it, in particular, is largely based on expectations and hopes. Experts compare the current stage of development of the cryptocurrency market with the beginning of the XX century, remembering the banking panic of 1907, and the creation of the US securities and exchange Commission (SEC) in 1934.As today in the cryptocurrency market, the financial world was then shaken by scandals with insider trading, novice investors invested money in extremely dubious projects, and all this confusion almost led the US to bankruptcy and became the beginning of the great depression. Goldman Sachs, however, recognizes some benefits of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain: "the Concept of digital currency, which uses blockchain technology is viable given the benefits it can provide: ease of transaction at the global level, to reduce transaction costs, reduce corruption and security". Goldman Sachs does not see prospects for cryptocurrencies in the future, but also argues that even if there is a crisis in the bitcoin system, it will not significantly affect the economy: "we believe that the collapse of bitcoin will not have a negative impact on the global economy or financial markets. At the peak of the "bubble" burst in March 2000, the total capitalization of the shares of information technology companies the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 was 101% of US GDP and 31% of world GDP. The total capitalization of cryptocurrencies is 3.2% of US GDP and 0.8% of world GDP." The head of the Department of investment research Goldman Sachs Steve Strongin said that after the January and February correction, the majority of cryptocurrencies "will not survive" in its current form. In his opinion, most digital assets have no long — term prospects-partly because of the low speed of transactions, security problems and high maintenance costs.

It should be noted that earlier in the Central Bank of Germany declared the need to strictly control the development of the industry at the international level. Director of the organization Joachim Würmeling pointed out that the digital currency has "infinity", in this regard, it is difficult to regulate it.
