Coinbase Expects 50% Drop In Revenue, Crypto Daily TV 9/12/2022
In Todays Headline TV CryptoDaily News: Coinbase CEO confirms 50% decline expectations in revenue. Coinbase Global CEO Brian Armstong said the company’s revenue would be half or less what it was last year as the crypto exchange struggles amid stark price drops in cryptocurrency prices and continuing ripple effects from multiple bankruptcies this year, including the recent collapse of rival exchange FTX. Slowing crypto startup funding may still surpass 2021 record. Research firm Pitchbook said that total funding at crypto startups this year is set to exceed investments in 2021. However, the pace of capital deployment is slowing as a series of crypto blowups sapped private equity investment appetite. Celsius bankruptcy judge orders return of some crypto assets to customers.

Leading crypto trading and lending firm ends Chelsea sponsorship
Amber Group has terminated a sponsorship deal with Chelsea football club and has also cut its workforce again in order to survive the crypto winter. Amber Group, one of the leading trading and lending platforms in Asia, has terminated a partnership with the London-based Chelsea football club. The partnership only began last May and had the Chelsea players wearing the Amber WhaleFin logo on their shirts. As reported by an article on Bloomberg, the sponsorship deal was said to be worth $25 million a year. Amber is now following a legal process which will enable it to end the deal. On top of the scrapping of the sponsorship deal Amber Group has also cut its workforce again. The latest cuts will see the workforce slashed from 700 to less than 400. At the peak of operations the trading and lending platform employed around 1,100. In order to further cut costs Amber plans to move to cheaper offices in Hong Kong. Offices in other regions will likely close, with the employees there given the opportunity to work from home. All of these moves are part of a major strategy to cut costs in what is a very difficult time for the crypto sector following the collapse and ensuing fall out from Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX platform. Amber Group will now move its focus away from retail customers and will instead target larger institutions such as family offices and high-net-worth individuals. The Asian digital asset platform has also suffered bereavement in recent times. Its co-founder Tiantian Kullander died in his sleep at the age of only 30.

DeFi and Web3 are Broken. Developers Can Fix it Using Blockchain 
Web2 and Web3 are similar technologies, but developers approach challenges differently. Web2 focuses on reading and writing content, whereas Web3 focuses on creating content. The latter utilizes blockchain technology to facilitate user information exchange and enhance security. Around 20,000 smart contract developers work full-time in DeFi and Web3, but it's a small number of the 27 million developers globally. At the same time, the number of Unique Active Wallets interacting with blockchain applications reached an average of two million per day. Still, compared to Web2 app Instagram’s 500 million daily active users and 4.2 billion likes per day - blockchain apps fight to onboard users. Ethereum and its Solidity programming language have long been the go-to choice for DeFi developers building financial services on the blockchain. However, DeFi on Ethereum has seen over $285m in hacks; the rewards could be more fairly shared, and Ethereum continues to be congested and expensive. These issues cause developers to hurry to alternatives like NEAR, Avalanche, and Solana to offer financial services. But unfortunately, they also spend countless hours ensuring their decentralized application is secure, only to wake up and realize bad actors drained millions of dollars of users' funds. At the same time, business leaders search the earth for people with the skills needed to build smart contracts and do whatever it takes to find users prepared to put up with the inferior user experiences presented by DeFi apps. Only to be further capped by network congestion and fees. As we rapidly enter the Web3 era, where value and data quickly move across decentralized platforms with distributed ownership and authority, entrepreneurs and developers need the tools to craft ideas and build quickly, easily, and safely. Moreover, if DeFi is to ever scale beyond crypto natives, developers in Web3 need standardized tools to build applications with user experience at the core. The argument for better DeFi Consumer saving and spending arguably power the world. As a result, we, the little guys, control the most critical parts of the global economy and financial system. The internet was all about information, but DeFi is about money - and in a world where cash is power, DeFi flips the model on its head. Most people these days spend and save using a bank, limited by regulatory compliance and further legacy issues. Web3 gives rise to a new way of doing things. New financial products built using smart contracts allow consumers to move between providers in seconds, all from the comfort of a mobile device. DeFi also creates more competition for building financial products by lowering the barrier to entry, sharing a user base between applications, and letting money move instantly and seamlessly between opportunities. The argument is that decentralized financial programs like Aave, Uniswap, and MakerDAO can directly control assets and allow financial products to operate 24/7, all year round, with 100% uptime and no staff, which will be appealing to end-users if presented in the right way. Sticky points Arguably the end-user experience of most decentralized apps leaves much to be desired. Blockchain wallets and asset custody, alongside a complex web of transactions and signatures, await beginners, while hardened veterans navigate the space with caution, often making mistakes. At the same time, according to DeFi Lama’s hack rankings, more than $700m was siphoned out of the crypto space in malicious attacks from the start of October 2022 to date. So if DeFi is to succeed, users must be able to trust and use the services offered in an intuitive, familiar, almost Web2 way. For that to happen, blockchain platforms must provide more incentives for Web2 developers and pioneers to leave a familiar world and embrace Web3. These incentives don't need to be financial but provide builders with the tools to deliver stunning products. Executives at tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Amazon will likely lead the way, leaving high-profile jobs at market-leading brands to take positions in the promising blockchain space. Polygon and Circle have hired top talent from tech firms, enticing them with the angle of working on the next big thing in Web3. Further Silicon Valley talent heading for crypto includes Sherice Torres, the former Chief Marketing Officer of Facebook’s crypto and payments team, Novi. At the same time, Amazon Cloud executive Pravjit Tiwana joined Gemini as its Chief Technical Officer. Add to this a series of mass layoffs in the tech sector, including Twitter, Amazon, and Meta’s dismissal of thousands of workers amidst the highest rates of global inflation seen for decades. This creates an incredible opportunity for businesses that previously wanted to expand their tech and payment capabilities but couldn’t because of the shortage of talent available. As a result, blockchain firms can now compete with recruiters from Silicon Valley for the brightest minds with a track record of taking products to market. Arguably, there has never been a better time to think about leaping into Web3 and DeFi development as more powerful tools, and no code solutions come online for those with a solid programming foundation. Playing around proves useful Gaming, and more importantly, the Unity game engine, led the way regarding the standardization of tools needed to build games. It gave game developers rendering and basic physics engines from which to build—altogether simplifying the process, lowering the barrier to entry, and making way for innovation and healthy competition. As a result, games got more complex while libraries of reusable art and in-game items became available for other developers to use creatively. As a result, developers, entrepreneurs, and users rushed in. With this straightforward invention of an engine and powerful tools, gaming grew bigger than music, TV, and film combined to become a billion-dollar industry. Ethereum has by far the most developers in the space, and according to DappRadar, more than 3500 dapps currently run from its smart contracts. The network is also the layer for many cryptocurrencies and blue-chip NFTs. However, as discussed earlier, Ethereum is no longer the sole player in smart contracts and Web3 development. Moreover, Ethereum doesn't offer developers plug-and-play solutions to build dapps. Instead, developers tend to fork existing applications, as was the case for Sushiswap, a fork of Uniswap. In this scenario, developers often take the bad UX from the forked application, choosing not to improve it. Ethereum is simply an industry-standard choice. However, as MySpace fell from its once high perch, and as competition increases and developers focus on end-users, other networks deliver solutions that entice Web2 builders to leap. There are solutions One blockchain stack applying the plug-and-play model outlined by Unity to decentralized finance and Web3 is Radix. The company, with its roots in the United Kingdom, has been working to deliver seamless DeFi for a decade and showcased its Radix Engine, which promises to be the Unity engine of DeFi, at an event called RadFi, where CEO Piers Ridyard laid bare the inefficiencies of DeFi. “Right now, crypto, DeFi, and Web3 are just one big glorified tech demo. For everyday people to use it, we've got to improve it radically.” Piers Ridyard, CEO of Radix At the virtual Keynote event, CEO Piers Ridyard also said what differentiates Radix is the fundamental shift in how the platform is built. The network features the world’s first programmable DeFi engine that takes concepts such as tokens and vaults and makes them native and fully interoperable. In addition, there’s a catalog of tools and pre-made solutions where Web2 developers can find helpful building blocks. The Radix engine promises to remove all the complex, low-level work that Web3 and DeFi developers spend 80% of their time on other platforms. Creating a programming language specifically for Web3 and DeFi called Scrypto, Radix hopes to tempt millions of Web2 developers into Web3. But, more importantly, provide them with a soft landing and the ability to build scalable DeFi products. Radix also claims they studied how bad actors were hacking applications built on public networks like Ethereum. For example, events such as reentrancy attacks, spend approval attacks, or signature manipulation attacks have cost the Ethereum ecosystem millions. The Radix Engine makes many of these attacks impossible, prioritizing asset security as a primary network operation, not an afterthought. Another Layer-1 blockchain trying to simplify the developer building process is Fuse Network, with its Charge product and Fuse Cash wallet. Charge takes a drag-and-drop approach to DeFi and payment infrastructure, partnering with ecosystem allies and matching them to build on their no-code platform. With a close focus on everyday payments and DeFi, Fuse and Radix are just a few of many teams out there trying to entice Web2 developers to embrace crypto and DeFi by helping them provide an experience similar to that of Web2 without investing years of study. Focus where it matters User experience in DeFi and decentralized apps has arguably suffered as brilliant people worked on the wrong problems. Successful Web3 developers may focus on pushing the boundaries of blockchain technology and the inner workings of finance and tokenomics. Still, it comes at the expense of genuinely usable applications that the mainstream user could adopt and feel safe using. Solutions like the Radix Engine could profoundly affect the industry and attract Web2 developers to build mobile-first, user-friendly applications delivering DeFi and crypto solutions. In addition, Web2 developers bring a wealth of user onboarding and knowledge that could hold the key to the mass adoption of decentralized applications. With tools becoming available Web2 developers can tap into battle-hardened code, spend less time on day-to-day app maintenance and security, and allocate resources to building beautiful applications that work, gain traction, and deliver a smooth user experience. In addition, web2 developers can join and complement the work already done by leading blockchain teams while not having to risk learning complex new programming languages. Another thing that attracts Web2 developer talent from big tech companies to Web3 is money. According to data from Blind, a social network for professionals, Coinbase offers as much as $900,000 a year for software engineers. At the same time, the average salary for Web3 developers ranges between $75,000 and $200,000. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Casinos Blockchain Provides Important Statistics About Crypto Gambling & Analyses Its Future
CasinosBlockchain.io has prepared a helpful assortment of the most recent Bitcoin casino statistics through which readers can learn how many crypto casinos are available, how much Bitcoin gamblers have already wagered, and plenty more relevant information regarding this popular industry. Moreover, Casinos Blockchain analyzes the future of crypto gambling and answers a few FAQs to make sure readers know everything there is to know about Bitcoin casinos before getting involved, including both the risks and benefits. What are some of the top Bitcoin casino statistics? Gambling has been a popular way to pass the time for many centuries, and it is no different today. However, thanks to the advent and subsequent implementation of innovative technologies like cryptocurrencies, ‘Bitcoin gambling’ has become exceedingly popular to the point that since 2014, players have actually wagered over $4.5 billion in Bitcoin to date. The global casino industry itself is worth more than $231 billion as of the time of this writing. Moreover, approximately 60% of all Bitcoin transactions are related to gambling in some way, shape or form. What is even more mindblowing is that crypto gamblers place 337 bets every single second, and that these gamblers bet $3 million worth of crypto on a daily basis. The most popular cryptocurrencies for gambling purposes were observed to be Bitcoin and Ethereum, although these are not the only choices that gamblers have as using other altcoins like Litecoin may yield better results. Why does this matter? Despite the fact that land-based casinos and casino resorts suffered significant setbacks as a result of the pandemic and other factors such as inflation, the gambling sector as a whole nevertheless continued to thrive as a substantial portion of players made the shift to online gambling. Furthermore, the casino market is predicted to grow in the coming years. To that end, the revenue of brick-and-mortar casinos in the United States is expected to increase year on year from 2021 to 2024 and experts view this is a key indicator of the projected growth for the casino market. It should be mentioned that although online casinos are becoming more popular on a global scale, it will surely take some time before they become as popular in the United States, given that many states in the country have yet to legalize online casinos and a sizable portion tend to operate without a license. Nevertheless, Straits Research predicts that the global online gambling market will reach $153 billion by the end of 2030, growing at a CAGR of 11.7% during the analysis period. Outside of the United States, Europe has the biggest market share, and it is expected to grow at a 12% CAGR between 2021 and 2030. In addition, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow faster than Europe, with a CAGR of 12.8%, and to reach $50 billion by 2030. Where does crypto fit into all this? Crypto gambling is leading the way in the online gambling industry. Of course, Bitcoin can be used for other purposes like buying NFTs, cars, real estate, and even insurance. Still, the majority of Bitcoin transactions take place in crypto casinos. The most recent Bitcoin gambling statistics therefore indicate that interest in crypto gambling is growing as players continue to prefer cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin over traditional fiat currencies. Although exact figures are difficult to obtain, the global crypto gambling market is estimated to be worth a quarter of a billion dollars by Crypto Wisser. Moreover, as the amount of hybrid casinos grows, the global crypto gambling market is similarly expected to grow in value over time and as an increasing number of people and businesses adopt crypto which many big names like Microsoft, PayPal, Home Depot, and Starbucks already have. Crypto gamblers placed just about three billion crypto-based bets in the first quarter of 2021, according to the most recent Bitcoin casino statistics for 2022. During the same time period, the quantity of these bets increased by 116% to reach over six billion. In fact, within the first quarter of 2022, cryptocurrencies accounted for approximately 36% % of all bets in general. Most crypto gamblers also prefer to play on their smartphones due to the portability aspect. Is crypto gambling safe and where does it go from here? Provably fair games are available at approximately 77.6% of crypto casinos. These games enhance the transparency of crypto casinos which is in stark contrast to traditional casino games, as a provably fair game enables users to verify the outcome of each hand or round played. As a result, provably fair games are frequently preferred among crypto gamblers who value safety and transparency. Also, casino operators can use blockchain technology to access features that are not available in traditional casinos. For instance, crypto casinos could operate at lower costs, with improved security, and with faster withdrawal speeds, just to name a few advantages. The best part about crypto gambling, however, is that blockchain technology has a lot of untapped potential. With all the interest surrounding other emerging technologies nowadays such as NFTs, the metaverse, VR and AR, the sky could well and truly be the limit for this immensely popular industry.

ECB attempts to tarnish crypto before CBDC rollout
As the European Central Bank prepares to issue its digital currency, executive member Fabio Panetta gives a speech based on trying to dissuade the public from investing in cryptocurrencies. A keynote speech by Fabio Panetta, member of the Executive Board of the European Central Bank, concentrated solely on describing what in his view are the fundamental flaws to be found in cryptocurrencies. Panetta lays out what he perceives as the risks in three fundamental flaws. Unbacked crypto-assets offer no benefits to society The first perceived flaw is that crypto assets do not perform any useful function for society. Panetta states that they aren’t used for payments, they don’t fund consumption, they don’t help fuel production, and they don’t help to combat climate change. He complains that cryptocurrencies aren’t backed, they are volatile, and they are unstable. He says that they are “notional instruments” and have no value for investors that buy them. Panetta states that there is no compensation for investors and highlights the significant losses from various collapses. He says that there are no insurance schemes and there is little protection from cyber risks. Stablecoins are exposed to runs Panetta posits that stablecoins are stable in name only. He says that they are supposed to provide stability by having their value tied to a portfolio of assets. There then follows a section on algorithmic stablecoins, and of course the TerraUSD algorithmic stablecoin is highlighted. Crypto markets are highly leveraged and interconnected Panetta makes the point that crypto markets can have extremely high leverage, creating “strong procyclical effects” where shocks aren’t easily absorbed. He points the finger at DeFi, where he says the procyclical effects are amplified by the overcollateralization common in DeFi. He says that the flaws are magnified by inadequate governance, and insufficient transparency and disclosure. Regulation and CBDCs Panetta then goes on to basically say that crypto will only endure as long as investors are looking for a place to gamble. In order to minimise this he recommends that they are regulated and that they do not receive “preferential treatment”. He says that “regulators must walk a tightrope” and avoid allowing unsound cryptos from “socialising the risks through bailouts”. He welcomes the EU incoming MiCA regulations and states that it is crucial they enter into force rapidly. The rest of the review lays out the case for central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), which in his view will be the only “anchor of stability”. He concludes with a call for urgent global regulation in order to protect consumers, and to reduce the contagion risk of stablecoins, and signs off with the following paragraph: “regulation will not turn risky instruments into safe money. Instead, a stable digital finance ecosystem requires well-supervised intermediaries and a risk-free and dependable digital settlement asset, which only digital central bank money can provide.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Dimon says regulators should focus on crypto and not big banks
The CEO of JP Morgan says that Crypto is a sideshow and its tokens are like pet rocks. Ever ready to launch digs at the cryptocurrency industry, Jamie Dimon, CEO of the second largest bank in the world was scornful of crypto when asked about it in a video on CNBC. He told the CNBC interviewers that they “spent too much time on it”, and that “crypto tokens are like pet rocks”. Even though his bank provides crypto services to some of its customers, Dimon has always continued to criticise the sector. He said that crypto has: “$20 to $30 billion of ransomware that we know about, $20 to $30 billion of exchange costs that we know about, lots of AML, anti-terrorism financing, tax avoidance, trafficking - why do we allow this stuff to take place?” Opinion He added that maybe the regulators should “stop beating up on banks and focus more on crypto”. With this comment Dimon appeared to be saying don’t look at us, look at this industry over here. It does seem a bit rich that Dimon should be trying to divert the public and watchdog gaze from his bank, when so many of JP Morgan’s nefarious practices over the last few years have been caught and fined extremely heavily. It must be relied upon that JP Morgan will be compliant with every single requirement demanded by banking and financial regulations in general, so it does appear a little odd that this bank is caught time and time again in so many differing cases of fraudulent operations. It also seems rather arrogant that CEO Dimon is able to use his appearances in public to throw dirt at a competing industry without his comments being questioned or his own backyard being put into focus. When Jamie Dimon speaks the world listens. He is after all one of the most influential men in the global banking industry, and as such his comments are slavishly printed no matter their content. In a world where wealth and position are what matter, Dimon will surely continue to use his power and influence to tip the scales in his favour. Let us hope that he also uses his time to address the issues in his bank. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

IoTeX, First Web3 Project In One Of The World’s Largest Open Source Software Groups
IoTeX has joined the Eclipse Foundation, one of the world's largest open-source software organizations, and will contribute to the Oniro Project working group to develop a distributed open-source operating system for all consumer devices. IoTeX is not only the first Layer 1 blockchain project to join the EF but also the first one which explores how to integrate Web3 components into the operating system layer of IoT devices as additional services and modules. And by contributing to the Oniro Project, it now becomes possible for IoT devices to interact with blockchains using these advanced operating system features. "The Eclipse Foundation is thrilled to welcome IoTeX and its team of scientists, engineers, and cryptographers, and we are excited to see the Web3 open-source technology they bring to our community," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "We will provide a vendor-neutral governance framework within the Oniro working group for open collaboration with IoTeX." The EU-based Eclipse Foundation has over 300 strategic members and dozens of associate members, including IBM, Microsoft, Google, Oracle, Bosch, Siemens, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Volkswagen, BMW, and many others. The Foundation provides its global community of individuals and organizations with a mature, scalable, and business-friendly environment for open-source software collaboration and innovation. "We are extremely honored to become one of the Eclipse Foundation's most recent members and bring a Web3 perspective to the EF that connects the physical world to the metaverse," said IoTeX CEO and Co-Founder Raullen Chai. "Our main focus is collaborating with the foundation's Oniro Working Group." Supercharging customer loyalty Among the infinite number of consumer-facing and industrial use cases, W3bstream enables supercharging customer engagement and loyalty with intelligent devices that range from tiny sensors to carsand large home appliances.Simply put, W3bstream integration in Oniro OS turns any IoT sensor into a blockchain-enabled device, making it benefiting instantaneously from all web3 technologies such as data ownership, data monetization, automated transactions through smart contracts, and X-to-earn models. Bosch, for example, manufactures smart washing machines and refrigerators. This year's global smart refrigerator market was worth just over $5.2 billion and is expected to reach nearly $7 billion by 2025, according to a Report Linker report. In the US, large, intelligent appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines are present in 13% of households, Statista reported. Smart refrigerators have cameras and sensors that gather loads of data, namely all of their users' consumer habits, including where and how often they shop for groceries. All that data has tremendous marketing value and could also have social and medical research applications. With W3bstream, Bosch could quickly and inexpensively develop a Web3 application integrated into each smart refrigerator to reward users for their data which could be enough to pay back the appliance over time. At the same time,Bosch would also generate revenue from transactional costs derived from the users' data sharing.. Car knows you better than you believe Car data could already be worth more than the vehicle itself, according to a 2017 report. Mashable wrote that newer cars are similar to smartphones, only they have wheels. Many are WiFi-enabled, come with over a hundred CPUs, and have Bluetooth embedded. It knows, just like your smartphone, whether you are a churchgoer, attend AA or visit Planned Parenthood. Because of nearly 200 or so sensors throughout the vehicles, it has data points that can build a complete profile of you and your passengers. According to a McKinsey report, car data monetization will be worth $750 billion by 2030. In 2021, there were about 230 million connected cars globally and 84 million on the roads in the United States, according to a Statista report. By 2030, that number is expected to triple to 630 million worldwide and 235 million in the United States, meaning the data of each car is worth at least $1,000 annually. So again, what if Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, BMW, and Volkswagen, members of the Eclipse Foundation, built their Web3 dApp on W3bstream, allowing their consumers to earn at least $1,000 back each year from their cars to enhance consumer experience and loyalty. On average gaining a new customer costs five times more than holding onto a current customer. Improving customer loyalty is one of the main battles for marketing departments. Being able to offer customers rewards for their data is a powerful weapon in their customer loyalty armory. These are just two examples out of thousands that IoTeX's open-source technology makes possible for businesses seeking new ways to increase customer engagement and generate new revenue streams. Collaboration toward innovation The Canada-based Eclipse Foundation has over 300 members and dozens of associate members. It provides its global community of individuals and organizations with a mature, scalable, and business-friendly environment for open-source software collaboration and innovation. IoTeX is an open-source platform at the intersection of blockchain and the Internet of Things. Coining its vision MachineFi, it is on a mission to enable the future decentralized machine economy. It seeks to build a connected world where machines, humans, businesses, and decentralized applications (dApps) can interact with trust and privacy. IoTeX combines blockchain, its off-chain compute infrastructure called W3bstream, and open hardware to connect billions of devices and dApps across the physical and digital world. The Oniro Group and IoTeX are a perfect match as they are both IoT agnostic and are keen on building a global community of developers. Designed with modularity, Oniro offers more significant levels of flexibility and application portability across the broad spectrum of consumer and IoT devices — from tiny embedded sensors and actuators to feature-rich smart appliances and mobile companions. By enabling any Oniro-powered device to interact and transact on the blockchain, IoT and device manufacturers, OEMs and integrators, and any IoT-related project are reaching a new frontier where disruptive business models such as Sensor as a service, pay per use, data monetization are now easily accessible and implementable seamlessly. With this membership, IoTeX expands its collaboration to new spheres as it heads into 2023. More remarkable development and growth are expected as it achieves and delivers massive technological advancements in Web3. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Balancer is a highly versatile automated portfolio manager and decentralized exchange (DEX) that allows users to trade cryptocurrency assets and create liquidity pools with up to eight different assets in any ratio. Balancer was founded in 2018 by Fernando Martinelli and Mike McDonald. The project raised $3 million in 2020 and is maintained by Balancer Labs.

Balancer's liquidity pools can be likened to a self-balancing crypto index fund where management fees, rather than being paid to fund managers, are paid to liquidity providers. Similar to other decentralized exchanges like Uniswap and Sushiswap, Balancer allows users to exchange between various cryptocurrency assets in its liquidity pools—which can contain up to eight different assets in fixed or variable weighting, allowing for automated rebalancing.

BAL cryptocurrency serves as the governance token of the decentralized platform and also as an additional reward for users who deposit tokens into Balancer's liquidity pools, besides the transaction fees they earn.

BAL price

According to our BAL/USD live price chart, BAL coin began trading in mid-2020 at around $20 and rapidly rose to reach its 2020 high of just over $38 in August. However, it lost those gains within a few weeks and fell below its listing price, eventually bottoming out at its 2020 low of around $8 on November 4. BAL price then made a strong turnaround and began ascending, closing the year at around the $14 mark. 

BAL price in USD terms took off rapidly at the start of 2021 amid widespread market optimism, maintaining the trend of strong growth over several months and later reaching an all-time high of $75 on May 4, 2021, achieving a fully diluted valuation of nearly $500 million. BAL coin's price then suffered a massive drop in the following weeks and it lost much of its early 2021 gains. 

Following the rapid drop in the BAL coin price, which lasted for about three weeks, BAL continued to slowly trend lower for the rest of 2021, eventually reaching its 2021 low of just under $13 in December 2021. The price of BAL failed to make a convincing recovery through the rest of 2021 and has slowly trended lower since the start of 2022, reaching an all-time and yearly low of around $3.6 on June 18, 2022.

How BAL works

Balancer utilizes an automated market maker (AMM) system to facilitate trades on its platform. An AMM is a smart contract that allows digital assets to be traded automatically and without the need to match a buyer and seller. Users who deposit their tokens into one of Balancer's liquidity pools earn a reward in the form of a portion of the platform's trading fees and liquidity pool (LP) tokens.

The Balancer platform serves two major sets of users: liquidity providers and traders. It allows liquidity providers to execute various strategies according to their preferences and enables traders to find the best price for trading an asset on its DEX. If a trader wishes to trade an asset via Balancer's exchange, its algorithms scan for the best price across all its liquidity pools. Once the pool offering the best price is found, it trades the desired assets via that pool, and in doing so, rebalances the pool's weighting. The pool offering the best price for the asset is, by design, the one that needs rebalancing the most. This way, Balancer is able to help traders find the best prices and automatically rebalance its liquidity pools according to their weighting simultaneously.

Balancer's liquidity pools work similarly to index funds, except that the assets in them are automatically rebalanced. In contrast to typical index funds, the liquidity providers who deposit their assets into the pool earn rather than pay fees, since there is no need for a fund manager.

Balancer news, updates & highlights

Balancer V2

In May 2021, an upgrade to the Balancer protocol dubbed "Version 2" (or "V2") was launched. It promised to reduce the gas fees required to use the platform by administering all liquidity pools from a single "vault". The vault is a smart contract that holds and manages all the assets in all Balancer pools. Several popular decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, such as Aave, Gnosis, and Ocean Protocol, were listed as partners for the upgrade. Balancer V2 also introduced "asset managers," which are external smart contracts nominated by pools that have full power over the tokens deposited in the vault by their nominator pool. Balancer offered a $2 million bug bounty ahead of the launch of its upgrade.

BAL token

Balancer didn't originally launch with its BAL token. The token was only just distributed to users in June 2020, shortly after lending protocol Compound announced the launch of its own COMP token. The total supply of BAL tokens is 100 million. 25% of BAL's total supply was reserved for the development team, advisers, and investors. 

Five million tokens were set aside for an ecosystem fund to promote the growth of the platform, and another five million were set aside for future fundraising rounds. 65 million out of the supply are to be distributed to users.

Fundraising

Balancer Labs raised $3 million in March 2020—just before the BAL coin was launched—in a private sale of 5 million BAL tokens. The firm has gone on to raise an additional $29.3 million over two more rounds, both taking place in 2021.
