0/ Hot start to the week in the #crypto/#blockchain ecosystem! Successful fundraising rounds. New records set. Several products launched. Below is a 34-part thread on events that took place between Monday and Tuesday.

1/ 🆕 @Guesserio launches today! Built on @AugurProject [ $REP ], the California-based #crypto project promises their release “will fundamentally change the way you participate in Augur prediction markets.”

Invest in the outcome of real-world events at your fingertips!
2/ 🔧 #Ethereum- and #IPFS-powered #blockchain platform for decentralized marketplaces, @OriginProtocol, unveiled its 'Marketplace Creator' tool.

This allows users to construct a decentralized marketplace in just a matter of minutes! medium.com/originprotocol…
3/ 📱 Leading #crypto cold storage solution provider, @LedgerHQ, released its Ledger Live #mobile app! Available on #Android and #iOS.

This compliment the soon-to-be-launched Ledger Nano X. For now, Nano S and Blue users can check their balances through the app.
4/ 👾 0x Ecosystem Acceleration Program member @BoxSwapio launched the public beta version of its NFT wallet!

Also features - thanks to @0xProject [ $ZRX ] - the ability to instantly purchase any #ERC20 token commonly used in the #NFT space. Neat! medium.com/boxswap/boxswa…
5a/ 💰 @KyleSamani and @TusharJain_’s Multicoin Capital announced in an #investment thesis it recently led a $2.5M seed round in the #SanFrancisco-based @GraphProtocol, a project they consider to be “one of the most important protocols in the Web3 stack.” multicoin.capital/2019/01/28/our…
5b/ 📰 In a weird case of timing, my latest @CryptoCoin_Spy article centred around @GraphProtocol and their #web3-oriented industry event, Graph Day.
6/ 👤 #Ethereum profiles #dApp and developer API @3Boxdb revealed that users can now share their 3Box profile URL and view it in any modern web browser.

No #web3 needed! The team also changed the layout of the profile page itself.
7/ ⚰️ After 2+ years in operation, the Liqui #crypto exchange announced it’s shutting down.

Unsurprisingly, liquidity was cited as the main reason behind the decision to shut up shop. Liqui users have 30 days to withdraw their assets from the exchange.
8/ 🤑 @TheRealBlockFi, a non-bank lender who creates lending and debt products for #crypto owners, raised an extension of their latest $4M convertible note issuance in December from Coinbase Ventures and Able Partners.

The #NewYork-based firm has raised almost $60M to date.
9a/ ⏲️ As of 15:00 UTC Monday, @Binance Launchpad held the sale of @BitTorrent’s #TRC10-compliant $BTT.

The $BNB session saw all 23.76B BTT sell in >13 mins. For the $TRX session, all 35.64B BTT sold in <15 mins. All up, 6% of total BTT supply were allocated for the public sale.
9b/ 🤨 There exists a healthy dose of scepticism vis-à-vis the BitTorrent #ICO, however.

For more on this, check out what @ConcourseQio – community-sourced due diligence for #crypto token sales – had to say about the BTT ICO in their detailed writeup. concourseq.io/Q/BitTorrent
10/ 🔄 @KyberNetwork [ $KNC ] announced the @InstaDapp-developed @EaswapHQ - an #ERC20 token swap platform powered by Kyber’s on-chain liquidity protocol - is creating the first Permissionless Orderbook Reserve. blog.kyber.network/easwap-integra…
11/ 🎭 @AZTECprotocol shared that, on Friday, they released the Confidential Token Standard, backed by the AZTEC cryptography engine (i.e., the zero-knowledge equivalent of the #ERC20 token standard)!

Click below for details re #zkERC20 (i.e., EIP-1724). github.com/ethereum/EIPs/…
12/ 🐔 Speaking of confidential transactions (CTs), @Litecoin [ $LTC ] creator @SatoshiLite tweeted that he's currently “focused on making Litecoin more fungible by adding Confidential Transactions."
13/ 🔥 @ArwenSecure (formerly Commonwealth Crypto) announced the release their #testnet trading application, updated whitepaper detailing Arwen's protocol, as well as the first exchange partner (i.e., @KuCoinCom) to offer Arwen's secure trading solution! medium.com/arwensecure/la…
14/ 📣 @RadarRelay, a wallet-to-wallet token trading platform, announced its decision to elevate Radar to the parent brand.

With another product launch imminent, this separation ensures that, with each new product introduction, Radar’s core vision persists.

19/ 🍉 @Melonport announced its $MLN #crypto token will be subject to a token migration event starting on February 1st, 2019.

20/ 🤯 Check this out: a blog post authored by machine learning engineer Aymen Jaffry explaining how @TRMlabs used #MachineLearning to classify the top million #Ethereum addresses (ranked by ETH volume traded).

25/ 🎧 @TheBlock__'s @lawmaster published a terrific talk by Riccardo Spagni (@fluffypony) centred around the right to #privacy and the five pillars of privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies. This was recorded in Davos late last week. theblockcrypto.com/2019/01/28/mon…

33/ ✍️ Wow. Check out this exceptional writeup from @arjunblj and @yassineARK, who detailed a framework they hope can help explain why #cryptocurrency communities have such strong ideological differences.
