TIDEFI Mainnet And DEX App Goes Live As TDFY Sunrise Pool Token Distribution Nears

Tidefi Mainnet And Dex App Goes Live As Tdfy Sunrise Pool Token Distribution Nears
google news

Providing streamlined access to a comprehensive DeFi ecosystem will usher in the next generation of crypto users. TIDEFI wants to become that gateway into decentralized finance through its DEX and with one ecosystem asset. Moreover, the project appeals to market makers, traders, and builders, establishing a crucial foundation for Web3 development.

Unfracturing DeFi Access

In the current decentralized finance landscape, financial equality remains tricky to come by. More specifically, there are many opportunities in the industry, but most are only accessible if one has sufficient knowledge of the broader industry and its currencies. TIDEFI aims to simplify this process by unlocking decentralized finance for everyone.

Exploring traditional DeFi opportunities and protocols requires specialized software for different networks and solutions, assets across various blockchains, and the ability to keep track of everything. It is not something most newcomers want to approach, as it is overly complex. Instead, they seek a streamlined and more accessible ecosystem providing the necessary tools and a unified experience across all devices.

TIDEFI offers a native standalone application that is different from traditional browser-based DeFi access. It is an application that provides all the necessary tools and features and works across all major desktop PC operating systems. Additionally, the same look and feel will come to dedicated applications for Android and IOS later this year.

Moreover, it is crucial to understand how TIDEFI came to be. Its mainnet launch and DEX app are two essential milestones. The team achieved both roadmap goals without VC funding or unnecessary presales, although the project has 2.5 million GBP in seed round funding. Instead, they will bring more value to the community and set the stage for the distribution of 320 million TDFY tokens – 32% of the supply minted during Genesis – accordingly.

Driving Community Value

The TDFY Sunrise Pool and community treasury will unlock value for the community. The Sunrise Pool will provide initial liquidity for TDFY and help holders explore DeFi opportunities. In addition, the community treasury is set up to attract builders and developers creating on top of TIDEFI’s infrastructure. Additionally, there is one base currency for the DEX and the layer-1 ecosystem to incentivize community participation.

“Looking at the industry over the last couple years, specifically in the exchange space, we wanted to build a secure DEX that leveraged the price discovery and speed of a CEX, whilst giving the user complete control of their funds. Combining this with chain agnostic interoperability, we are excited to offer a transparent ecosystem for our community to participate in,” said TIDEFI Co-founder and CEO Daniel Elsawey.

One crucial difference TIDEFI brings to the table is enhancing decentralized finance with untraditional features. For instance, users can rely on limit orders through the native decentralized exchange, among other benefits.

Xdc Accelerates Network Expansion With $50M Investment From Lda Capital
google news

XinFin (XDC) Network, known for secure, scalable, and highly efficient blockchain use cases have received an investment worth $50 million from the global alternative investment group,  LDA Capital Limited. The investment originated by leveraging a portion of the token from the XDC founder’s allocation.

Ritesh Kakkad and Atul Khekade, the co-founders of XDC Network, are certain that the collaboration will accelerate network adaption and real-world use cases. The LDA is seen as a strategic partner rather than just a financier. The XDC founders have competence in the LDA due to their proactive and strategic involvement in the network to improve the ecosystem.

Atul stated:

“We’ve always looked for genuine strategic partners, not just funders, who can actively and strategically advance the ecosystem, while bringing utility to the network, and making XDC the preferred Layer 1 for institutions the world over–in LDA, we’ve found such a partner.”

The onboarding of LDA Capital benefits the XDC’s new ventures and entities focused on bringing in new retail and institutional members. The XDC’s smart contract based initiatives have expanded dramatically since its introduction in 2019. It is anticipated that this new relationship would encourage the growth and development of Layer 2 projects inside the XDC Ecosystem.

Anthony Romano, LDA Capital Ltd. stated:

“LDA Capital is pleased with the developments made in the XDC Network by the XDC ecosystem. In addition to its funding, LDA will offer strategic counsel and support to help XDC Blockchain Network assume its position as a market leader.”

Apart from the macro-economic benefits, projects like DEXs, Metaverses, NFT marketplaces, oracles, decentralized email providers & cloud storage, payment dApps, and legal document repositories are all roots of XDC utilities. The add-on of LDA support will further intensify the expansion rate in the XDC ecosystem as a whole.

Ethereum Price Recovery Could Soon Fade If ETH Fails To Surpass $1,350

Ethereum
google news

Ethereum started a fresh decline from the $1,350 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH retested $1,255 and remains at a risk of more losses.

  • Ethereum started another decline after it failed to clear the $1,375 zone.
  • The price is now trading below $1,320 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,300 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could decline sharply if it stays below the $1,350 level for a long time.

Ethereum Price Turns Red

Ethereum failed to gain pace above the $1,350 resistance zone. ETH started a fresh decline below the $1,320 support zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The bears even pushed the price below the $1,300 level. Ether price retested the $1,260 support zone. A low was formed near $1,264 and the price is now consolidating losses. It is now trading below $1,320 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $1,300 zone. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,300 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,373 swing high to $1,264 low.

The first major resistance is near the $1,320 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,373 swing high to $1,264 low is also near $1,318.

A clear break above $1,320 might start a decent increase towards the $1,350 level. Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a move towards the $1,400 resistance zone, above which the price could surge to $1,450.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to climb above the $1,320 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,260 level.

The next major support is near the $1,250 level. A downside break below the $1,250 level might send the price towards the $1,220 support.  Any more losses could increase selling and the price might drop to $1,200 or even towards $1,150.

Technical Indicators

Hourly MACDThe MACD for ETH/USD is now losing momentum in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSIThe RSI for ETH/USD is now just below the 50 level.

Major Support Level – $1,260

Major Resistance Level – $1,320

Helium (HNT) Holds Gains Undermining Market Downtrend

Hnt
google news

Helium (HNT), a cryptocurrency project focusing on the Internet of Things, has gained in recent times despite market conditions. According to CoinMarketCap, HNT has been up 8.42% over the last 7 days, trading at $4.90 at press time.

Despite the gains, the token has found it difficult to break above the $5 mark. The price movement has been on a downward trend. It’s uncertain if this will continue or not. However, its weekly price action has given traders a good reason to be hopeful.

How Helium Is Holding Its End

As of writing, the Helium (HNT/USD) price is $4.90. Although earlier this morning, October 2nd, it was considerably higher than that. What makes this rate so exceptional for this coin?

The market is behaving strangely. Friday’s HNT price of $5.11 and recent volatile trends indicate this. This is a really positive sign for this cryptocurrency, as there is now a great deal of interest in it. The coin’s value and trading volume have both increased since last week’s all-time high. So far, today’s trading volume is $19 million, although it’s down 9.52% over yesterday’s total of $21 million.

The charts currently show a double top which indicates a bearish reversal pattern. However, the current price is still very much within the range of support levels. If the price continues to fall below these levels, then we could see further losses. But if the price breaks out of the resistance level, then we can expect some bullish momentum.

HNT’s price is currently trading at $4.85. | Source: HNTUSD price chart from TradingView.com

Where Does Helium Go From Here?

There’s no telling where this coin will go from here, but things are going well for now. The price of HNT may be almost the same as it was at the beginning of the month, but this does not imply that the price has stayed relatively flat.

Quite the reverse, as the coin has seen much activity. This activity has taken HNT both to new lows and new highs in the space of a few weeks. As it strives to go more mainstream, we anticipate Helium will continue to experience a great deal of activity.

Those that took advantage of the recent downturn have reaped substantial profits from Friday’s upswing. The price movements between then and today, October 2nd, show they might get another chance to benefit in the weeks ahead. But there’s no way to tell for sure.

More On Helium’s IoT Offering

Helium is a blockchain-based technology that focuses on IoT. It has an internet router called Helium hotspot. These nodes provide users with more affordable and extensive internet connectivity. Most crypto initiatives focus on decentralized finance and non-fungible tokens, but just a handful on IoT.

Helium allows for long-distance communication thanks to its worldwide wireless network and helium hotspots. Connectivity for all IoT devices is guaranteed by these hotspots, which serve as the network’s backbone. 

If you own a hotspot, you may benefit from increased visibility and financial incentives. Helium’s distributed ledger technology is made possible by these nodes allowing IoT devices to communicate with one another.
