Bitshares has reached a new All Time High (ATH) this week and has broken the 2 Billion USD market cap barrier
The Smartcoin market now exceeds 100 Million USD all of which is backed by BTS collateral. Current Bitshares collateral backing of the smartcoin economy is valued at over 393 Million USD; That is to say: for each $1 of face value in the smartcoin market there is currently $3.93 of value/collateral (BTS) backing that single $1 all of which is trustlessly secured by smart contracts running on the blockchain!
This week has seen good growth in the Bitshares smartcoin economy seeing BitGold supply increase by 68%, BitCNY supply increase by 40% as well as Ruble up 25%, BitBTC up 18% and USD up 16%.
Boxing legend and hall of famer Evander Holyfield has officially endorsed AriseBank. The slogan 'Join the biggest fight in history' has arisen from the partnership. Picture below.
BitXCD Eastern Caribbean dollar is now live on the Bitshares network. BitXCD is a unique SmartCoin, because it is not backed by BTS but by bitUSD, as a 2nd level SmartCoin. The Eastern Caribbean dollar is subdivided into 100 cents and has been pegged to the United States dollar since 7 July 1976, and the exchange rate is US$1 = EC$2.70 or 0.3704 US cents. Given the fixed exchange rate of this currency and the collateral backing being BitUSD, The collateral requirements have been reduced to 1.001.
