2019 has been a tumultuous but amazing year for the development and advancement of blockchain technology. Following the rally to the all-time-highs at the end of 2017 and the intense infrastructure development and ongoing Bear Market of 2018 it was clear things were changing quickly. We are about to enter a new decase and the team at Aelf wanted to look back at 2019 and reflect on some of the events that occurred over the last year to see where the industry might be headed in 2020.
Although the year has been considered a continuation of the 2018 bear market, it didn’t stop development, progression and a myriad of crazy events from occurring. This included the challenges associated with global regulations, the upcoming Bitcoin halving event in May 2020, announcement of the Facebook Libra and Telegram Open Network’s (TON) launch delay. This year also saw a myriad of debacles from self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Craig Wright, the Justin Sun and Warren Buffet lunch situation, the recent claim of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s goal to modify Twitter into a decentralized version of the platform, and President Trump’s Bitcoin statement, among others. Now let’s examine more of what took place during 2019 as we approach the start of the New Year in 2020.
The SEC, Telegram, Facebook Libra, Kik and Blockchain’s Global Regulatory Environment
Many of the world’s governments have been harsh towards blockchain technology in recent years. Particularly, the US Government and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have been very reluctant to ease the regulatory framework for blockchain development in the country. This has become more evident in 2019, with the SEC combatting many blockchain projects this year including the $1.7 billion-dollar token offering of the Telegram Open Network
and the Facebook Libra project. As well the SEC created controversy in a gruesome battle with Kik over its alleged illegal token offering that Kik has sworn to fight to their last breath.
Many proponents of blockchain technology accuse the SEC of unfair policies to put a stranglehold on the development on blockchain in order to prevent the devaluation of the American monetary system. The reluctance for crypto exchanges to set up shop in the US is also becoming more prevalent because of the supposedly biased and unfavourable approach of the SEC. Nevertheless, there are also several major countries including China that have for the most part embraced the advancement of blockchain technology in 2019. China has also nearly finalized the development of the digital Chinese Yuan and announced that that country is going all in on blockchain development despite its sometimes anti-Bitcoin approach.
The Bitcoin Halving Event and its Ongoing Effect on Market Conditions
With the end of 2019 nearly upon us and the upcoming Bitcoin halving event set to take place during May of 2020 the market could be overdue for a bull market of mass proportions. Remember, the last bull market that took place was 2 years ago during December 2017 and was followed by an incredible dump from the all-time-high price of 20 thousand US Dollars to just 3300 USD in December 2018. For the most part, 2018 was a blood-bath for crypto markets and 2019 has not been all that much better. The price did briefly rally up to 14 thousand US Dollars during mid 2019 but has since been reduce by half with the Bitcoin price presently at just over 7000 US Dollars. Bitcoin was designed by its original creators with code written to mitigate the negative effects of inflation. In order to curb inflation, once every 4 years (or 210,000 blocks) the mining rewards that the network automatically generates are reduced in half.
3 Additional Stories to Watch in 2020
In June, the CEO of Tron, Justin Sun purchased tickets through eBay for a charity auction to have lunch with Warren Buffet. Sun paid a record $4.56 million US Dollars in the process becoming the highest bid in the 20-year history of the event. The purpose of the lunch from Sun’s standpoint is to change Mr. Buffet’s viewpoint towards crypto and blockchain tech by inviting several blockchain industry leaders to help sway the famous investor’s perspective. Sun subsequently missed the lunch he scheduled in September because of a sudden bout with kidney stones. At this time, the community will have to wait and see when Sun and Buffet will meet in 2020. Stay tuned.
Back in December of 2015, Craig Wright claimed publicly to be the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. Most believe Wright was lying to gain more fame and recognition in the industry. On November 18th, 2018 Bitcoin SV hard forked from the Bitcoin Cash Network to create it own chain. As noted above, the disgruntled CEO of Bitcoin SV, has for years maintained he led the initial development of Bitcoin. During February 2018, Wright was the subject of a 5.118-Billion-dollar lawsuit by Dave Kleiman claiming that Wright defrauded Kleiman of Bitcoin while working on the initial development of the Bitcoin Network between 2009 and 2013. In August 2019, Wright was ordered by a court of law to pay half the 5.11 Billion in Bitcoin back to Kleiman. Throughout 2019, Wright launched lawsuits against Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin, Bitcoin Cash’s Roger Ver and others for calling him a fraud. It seems likely Wright will continue his ongoing Satoshi rhetoric in 2020.
The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey recently stated that he has hired 5 full-time employees to modify the Twitter platform and make it increasingly decentralized. This may seem like a small step initially, but this project could be expanded easily by someone of Dorsey’s reputation and wealth in the technology industry. Dorsey himself has been a long-term proponent of blockchain technology and an investor in Bitcoin. Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao, recently offered to help Dorsey make this dream come to fruition. Additionally, Morgan Creek Capital founder Anthony Pompliano supported Dorsey’s statement noting that, “Jack Dorsey may understand the future better than any entrepreneur on the planet right now.”
This year we saw Kik, Telegram and Facebook Libra face fierce backlash from the most powerful regulatory body in the world, the SEC. We saw the Chinese government announce that they are all in on blockchain development and declare the upcoming launch of their own centralized digital Chinese Yuan. Justin Sun postponed his 4.56-million-dollar lunch with billionaire investor Warren Buffet because of health issues, while Jack Dorsey the CEO of Twitter proclaimed a more decentralized and open version of Twitter to prevent some of the abuse on the platform.
In 2019, the 4-year long Craig Wright and Satoshi Nakamoto saga continued, and we finally are moving closer to the much-anticipated Bitcoin halving event of May 2020 that could change the trajectory of the Bitcoin price for much of 2020 and 2021. It is clear 2019 has been an incredible year for the blockchain industry. With no shortage of uncertainty and scepticism in the short-term, it is likely that 2019 will pale in comparison to the developments of 2020. As we approach 2020, the industry will continue to expand towards mass adoption and the mainstream evolution of blockchain technology. Nevertheless, with the global regulatory blockchain environment evolving in many areas across the world, the uncertainty in the United States remains stronger than ever. There is no telling what will happen in this regard and what will happen with Bitcoin and this amazing revolution in 2020 and beyond.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Aelf Blockchain team and a Happy 2020 to all our community members!! Thank You

Ireland Is Cautious, But Not Opposed To Facebook’s Libra, Claims Finance Minister Michael D’Arcy During an interview at Sibos 2019, Ireland’s Finance Minister Michael D’Arcy conceded that Libra and stablecoins are a challenge, adding that while some governments and departments of Finance are opposed to it, Ireland is only being cautious. He said, “We are cautious. And my role as minister has me looking at this in substantial detail. I am cautious in relation to stablecoins and in relation to Libra. My senior minister is very cautious. The Central Bank of Ireland regulator is cautious. So we’re somewhere between cautious and very cautious.” According to the minister, the benefits stablecoins can have internationally are well-understood and accepted. However, the challenges they could pose to governmental and monetary policies cannot be overlooked, D’Arcy said.

Yesterday, there was a nasty drop in bitcoin below the $9,000 support area against the US Dollar. The price declined close to 15% and even traded below the $8,500 level. Finally, the price settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average and traded to a new monthly low at $8,055. Later, there was an upside correction above the $8,200 and $8,400 levels.
Moreover, the price recovered above the $8,500 level, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $10,087 high to $8,055 low. However, the upward move was capped by the $8,750 and $8,800 resistance levels. The bulls made a few attempts to push the price above $8,800, but they failed. As a result, the price started trading in a range below $8,800. At the outset, there is a key breakout pattern forming with resistance near $8,600 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
To start a strong recovery, bitcoin price must surpass the $8,600 and $8,800 resistance levels. The next key resistance is near the $9,000 and $9,080 levels. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major decline from the $10,087 high to $8,055 low is also near the $9,070 level. Finally, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming on the same chart with resistance near $9,350 and the 100 hourly SMA.

Tron (TRX) founder and CEO Justin Sun has won an eBay charity auction to have lunch with renowned investor and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett. The news was revealed in a press release shared with Cointelegraph on June 3.
Sun reportedly bid a record-breaking $4,567,888 to win the charity auction, which has been held by Warren Buffett for the past 20 years.
Bloomberg reports that the winner, who had previously been unnamed, will be able to bring seven friends along for lunch with Buffett at a steakhouse in New York.
All proceeds from the auction benefit the San Francisco-based non-profit GLIDE Foundation. As the press release notes, GLIDE focuses on fighting injustice and inequality on behalf of economically deprived and oppressed communities in need, including the homeless, those from ethnic minorities or of LGBTQ orientation.
Buffett’s wife is reported to have been a GLIDE volunteer before her passing in 2004, since which the investor has upheld his own commitment to the foundation, reportedly raising over $30 million to date in auction proceeds.
In a statement, Sun emphasized the importance of contributing to a foundation whose work provides holistic programs for the local community, noting that:
“BitTorrent and TRON’s US headquarters are in San Francisco, and bidding on this charity auction was a key priority for our team. I’m proud to have my bid donated to GLIDE, a foundation that provides critical support for our local homeless community.”
According to the press release, the auction was hosted in cooperation with the “eBay for Charity” initiative, which enables members of eBay’s online community to support their chosen charities both donate platform-derived proceeds and additional contributions to various causes. The initiative has reportedly raised almost $912 million for nonprofits via the e-commerce community to date.
In her own statement, Karen Hanrahan, CEO and president of GLIDE, underscored that 100% of Sun’s contribution would be used “to help people overcome barriers such as homelessness, addiction, hunger and social isolation and reach their full potential.”
As reported, Sun also recently offered to personally deposit 7,000 BTC to compensate the loss incurred by the major hack of top crypto exchange Binance last month. The offer — alongside other similar offers from industry members such as Coinbase and QKC — was gratefully acknowledged but declined by Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao.
For some in the crypto community, Sun’s charity lunch with Warren Buffett will recall the investor’s much-publicized negative view of decentralized cryptocurrencies. While Buffett is well-known for this scathing stance — memorably characterizing bitcoin as "probably rat poison squared.” He has, however, recently made more positive comments in regard to blockchain.
We present to you a report filed by our analysts for October 8–14.submitted by Golden_Island_Club to u/Golden_Island_Club [link] [comments]
The main market events on October 8–14, 2018
In the middle of the week, the expectations became reality — BTC lost about $300 in price within an hour. This time, the total cap failed to observe the periodicity — it dropped by $17 billion on Thursday and remained at this level until the end of the week. Thus, $219 billion on Monday turned into $202 billion by the end of the week.
Trading volumes were not particularly surprising: $12 billion on Monday, $16 billion on Thursday and $9 billion on Sunday. BTC dominated the market at 52–53% and up to 57% in the days of decline, followed by a reversal. The price for 1 BTC, as already mentioned, fell from $6,600 to $6,270 in the middle of the week, and recovered a bit to $6,330 at the end of the week ($6332 at the time of the report). There were no critical news, no far-fetched correlations with stock markets, and no fundamental reasons for such a decline. Most traders were happy with the current situation — the “pumps” of coins occurred every day. Top 10 coins showed complete correlation with the BTC price. In addition, intra-team and intra-project relations in the crypto-societies have strained, which was followed by a number of break-ups and heated public debates. There is a high chance that tycoons and market makers are trying to impose a thought that cryptocurrencies have no future. The advice is simple — to keep and purchase more strong coins, get rid of the weak ones and keep calm.
The big gains are right round the corner!
