Stellar Lumens is planning another huge giveaway after pledging to airdrop $120 million worth of its premined XLM token to users of messaging app Keybase. This is not the first time the five-year-old cryptocurrency has given away tokens. Coin Rivet reported on the company's $125 million giveaway in November, which at the time was dubbed the world's "biggest ever consumer giveaway". According to an official announcement on the Stellar blog, more than two billion XLM tokens will be airdropped to Keybase users. All users will have to do is authenticate their Keybase account and wait for the monthly airdrop to arrive. NEWS!

Binance Coin (BNB) is currently trading at around $27 following an 8% dump earlier in the week. Overall, price has been on a downtrend since July, but BNB has still managed to stay above its 200-day EMA. The price of BNB came crashing down toward the end of June, dropping from around $40 to fall back below its 20-day and 50-day EMAs. Price hit a low of $24 before recovering towards the $28-$30 region. Let's take a look at the chart for BNB. Buyers are clearly supporting the $27 price level, but BNB is struggling to break the level of resistance around its 20-day EMA, with price being rejected from that level three times over the last month.

Stellar (XLM) is currently trading at around $0.09 following some consolidation after a recent drop of nearly 25% in price. This year has been one of the worst for the IBM-backed cryptocurrency, as price has tumbled down below all its EMAs. Although sellers have been in control for the last few weeks, price has been consolidating nicely recently, much like most other cryptocurrencies. I therefore expect buyers to regain control soon and push XLM upwards. Let's take a look at the chart for Stellar. As you can see, price bounced near $0.085 this week, highlighting a clear wall that is not letting price drop any lower. However, at the time of writing, XLM has been underperforming most other coins inThe post Latest Stellar price and analysis (XLM to USD) appeared first on Coin Rivet.

Giveaways in the industry of cryptocurrencies have always been straddled with issues. We had the ETH scam-bot giveaways whereby they would appear on famous Twitter feeds requesting ETH and promising to return more. We had the Waltonchain giveaway to its own employee. And now, we have Justin Sun giving away Tesla cars to, well, no one. This doesn’t mean that all giveaways in the cryptocurrency industry are scams. Stellar gave away plenty of their token when they partnered with blockchain.com. Even Coin Rivet has run a competition, but in doing so we have proven that this was an actual, legitimate competition. Other competitions or giveaways are quite clearly bogus though. The ETH scams that ran during the bull run were The post A healthy scepticism of Twitter giveaways appeared first on Coin Rivet.

In a move to expand its asset offerings, Coinbase has created a new process by which anyone with a token can apply to have it listed on the platform.This news comes weeks after Coinbase said it was exploring the addition of several new assets including Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC) and Cardano (ADA).At present, Coinbase carries only a handful of top cryptos on its platform: bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether, ethereum classic and litecoin. The new policy will change all of that. Creators can now visit listing.coinbase.com to apply to have their digital asset listed on the platform. Coinbase says the new process will be free initially, but a fee could be introduced in the future to cover the legal and operational costs involved in onboarding new coins.The statement from Coinbase reads in part:"There are now thousands of digital assets of all types, including coins, tokens, forks, stablecoins, and collectibles. One of our top customer requests is to add support for these new assets, and we have been determining how to do this in a secure and compliant way for those assets meeting our standards."These changes will open Coinbase to an exponentially broader pool of blockchain-based projects and make it more competitive with foreign exchanges that offer a variety of options for traders.Dan Romero, vice president and general manager of Coinbase Consumer, told CNBC that crypto is becoming more important across the world, particularly in emerging markets and there is a need for Coinbase to "shift as a company to a more global perspective."While Coinbase might have opened the floodgates with the overhaul of its listing process, the company will only list digital assets that are "compliant with local law" and satisfy listing requests in a "jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction manner." In other words, assets available to Canadian customers, for example, might not be available to customers in the United States. Theoretically, users could leverage a VPN to circumvent jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction restrictions (this tactic is employed for other services and platforms, such as Netflix). But Coinbase could also police VPN use to bar this behavior, a practice which, while resource and time intensive, may also put off some of the crypto industry’s die-hards who value privacy. As of publication, Coinbase has not yet responded to Bitcoin Magazine 's request for comment or offered a game plan to police such activity. This article originally appeared on Bitcoin Magazine.
