Circle has announced the addition of four new digital assets to the Circle Invest platform, bringing the total number of listed cryptocurrencies on the platform to 11.

Announcing the news in a blog post, Circle revealed the new additions to be EOS, Stellar, 0x and Qtum. Circle further revealed that the four assets can be purchased through the Circle Invest platform either individually or as part of a basket using the “Buy the Market” retail portfolio investment feature.

New Feature and Listing Rationale

According to Circle’s blog post, the four crypto assets were chosen for listing based on their suitability, which was determined by the Circle Asset Framework. CCN reported in June that under the Circle Asset Framework, each asset to be evaluated on its own strengths, and under no circumstances are any fees paid to aid listing. This helps to ensure the integrity of the process and gives customers the confidence that only the best assets are listed on Circle platforms.

In order to help customers fully appreciate the value of every asset on Circle Invest, the company also announced the introduction of a new feature called “Explore.” This feature will help users gain insight into crypto investment with contextual and relevant information on the various aspects of crypto. Circle hopes that this simplification tool alongside the user-friendly interface of Circle Invest will help it in its mission to take crypto trading tot he mass market.

On the subject of why the four currencies specifically were chosen for listing, the blog post mentions that EOS promises to improve upon the Ethereum framework, especially regarding the number of transactions per second that can be held. Where the Ethereum blockchain can handle only 15 transactions per second, EOS has a proven capacity of several thousand transactions per second.

Stellar on its part, offers a low cost, high-speed cross-border payments solution, disrupting the current paradigm of international fiat payments which sometimes take weeks and charge up to 10 percent commissions. A typical Stellar cross-border transaction is completed in five seconds and costs less than a penny.

0x creates a framework for peer-to-peer crypto trading directly over the Ethereum blockchain through the use of “Relayers” that serve as exchanges built atop the 0x protocol. Finally, Qtum offers users the best of both bitcoin and ethereum, having been built as a hybrid of both assets.

Since releasing Circle Invest in March, the platform has aggressively courted increased market share, listing Zcash and Monero in May.

Bitcoin Sinks Below $3,200 as Teenage Bitcoin Millionaire Says Its Dead

It’s yet another dark day for Bitcoin. In fact, it’s the darkest one this year. The currency has once again set a new low for the year. At press time, the currency was trading at $3,230, down 10 percent in just 24 hours. The currency was performing especially poorly on some markets such as BitMEX, Coinbase Pro and Bitstamp where it was trading at $3,180. Since the week began, Bitcoin has lost close to $500. The currency’s immediate future looks bleak, especially given that it’s entering the weekend. Historically, cryptos have performed very poorly during weekends. With the currency sinking further and further for the year, one investor who made millions through Bitcoin has further added fuel to the fire. According to Erik Finman, the currency is dead. Finman made millions by investing in Bitcoin back in 2011 when only a few investors knew of the currency. However, according to him, the currency could have a few more bull runs but in the long term, it’s dead. Bitcoin Could Test the $3,000 Level Bitcoin hasn’t been for the faint hearted this year. It has tested various support levels and come up short. The $6,000 level seemed strong for quite some time, but even that came up short. And now, the currency seems poised to test the $3,000 level. In just the past one month, Bitcoin has halved in value. The assault had seemed to begin a reversal days ago when it hit $3,700 on some markets, but the bears seem to be in control of the market movements. On most markets, the father of crypto was trading just above $3,200. HitBTC continues to be one of the most friendly markets, with the price standing at $3,318. However, on American exchanges, the currency continues to perform dismally with Coinbase, Kraken and Gemini all trading at $3,180. Bitcoin could test the $3,000 level soon, with the current market making many investors frantic and eager to sell. The current sellout is the largest since July when the currency lost $3,000 in weeks causing traders to panic. With the weekend kicking off, it could drop further. Whether the currency can bounce back will largely depend on its ability to stay above the $3,000 support level. Bitcoin Is Dead – Teenage Millionaire As if the current turmoil isn’t enough for investors, a teenage Bitcoin millionaire has some more devastating news. According to Erik Finman, Bitcoin is dead. Finman believes that while it may not be immediate, it will slowly ebb away. He told MarketWatch: Bitcoin is dead, it’s too fragmented, there’s tons of infighting I just don’t think it will last. It may have a bull market or two left in it, but long-term, its dead. Finman began investing in Bitcoin in 2011 using money gifted to him by his grandmother. The early adopter grabbed the headlines last year after he turned his $1,000 investment into a $4 million fortune. However, he believes that those investors that are out to make millions as he did will lose their investment. And it’s not just Bitcoin. Finman believes that the future is even bleaker for Litecoin, the ‘silver to Bitcoin’s gold’. The currency is currently trading at $23, down 93 percent from its all-time high of $365. Litecoin has been dead for a while. It’s like when the sun is going down and there’s that eight minute period just before it goes dark. Litecoin is in its seventh minute.
