dApp Updates 📰🚀 #12: August 17

Lotta dApp Buzz

Hey Everyone,

This is the twelfth issue of the Token Valley dApp newsletter aiming to give updates on the latest news on decentralized applications (dApps) across various platforms (EOS, Ethereum, Tron, etc.). Let’s get right to it:

📺 dApp News

Other News

In an investor panel at the 2019 Asia Blockchain Summit last month, Hashed Co-Founder Alex Shin made a particularly interesting point regarding the differences between Asian and North American blockchain environments:

"The ethos is very different. You come to the Bay Area its often 'EOS & TRON aren't decentralized enough, RAWR', and you come to Asia, and that focus around censorship resistance isn't the first narrative.. When you talk to the major players and exchanges in Korea, they aren't really interested in consensus layers; they are interested in dApps. We want to list dApps. They are ahead, and when you go o the Bay Area, you don't see a lot of that going on at all. So the markets are very much diverging, and we will need different strategies for them."

Another cool thing we found this week is this Presentation on Blockchain Gaming by Wave Financial. It’s well worth a read, and is presented as a nice slideshow.

Basically, everything is down this week, following BTC as usual. There’s no need to over-complicate it. That’s life. Better luck next week :)

Tinlake

The Direct Path to DeFi

TL-DR: I want to give you a brief preview of a new product we’re launching called Tinlake, a platform built on decentralized financial infrastructure, that enables you to draw loans against conventional illiquid assets. This is done by issuing an ERC-20 token that represents a fraction of the collateral.

💰 Market Review

Continuing on last week’s trend, 3.0 Tokens ETH, TRON, and EOS have fallen against bitcoin as BTC’s market dominance briefly approached 70%. In dollar terms, EOS had a relatively neutral week with ups and downs, while ETH and TRON fell.

3.0 Tokens have fallen clearly behind BTC’s moves, with TRON facing late-week losses in the face of BTC growth. EOS has remained flat after a drop, and ETH has followed BTC’s rise in a more muted fashion.

Rumors swirl around TRON's Sun

Hey Everyone,

🤹 Tweets of the Week

💰 Market Review

TRON was the biggest loser this week, falling from 3 cents to 2.3 cents in 3 days after rumor’s of trouble with Chinese regulators began to circulate. Otherwise, the week’s markets were relatively unremarkable with ETH and EOS roughly following BTC’s movements as per the norm.

InstaDApp

InstaDApp bills itself as an “Autonomous Banking Portal on Emerging Blockchain based Financial Protocols”. According to its site, it already holds almost 40 million dollars in collateral, and allows users to lend, borrow, leverage, and swap crypto tokens.

We find this dApp exciting, as it it seems to function as a decentralized bank for decentralized currencies. It’s interface looks great, and as long as the numbers are truthful, InstaDApp has already grown well past the MVP stage.

This one is worth looking out for. If you try this dApp, let us know your experiences!
