Ankr to Introduce Sei Blockchain RPC Connection

Ankr has revealed plans to augment its RPC service by integrating with the Sei blockchain. This development aims to facilitate developers keen on leveraging the Sei platform for the creation of swift and scalable decentralized applications (dApps). The integration will enable users to access both Sei Public and Premium RPCs, allowing them to make request calls and receive responses akin to those from a Sei full node.

Sei’s Position in the Blockchain Space

Sei aspires to lead as the swiftest layer-1 blockchain, a feat achieved through its “Twin-Turbo” consensus mechanism. The blockchain boasts minimal transaction fees and a throughput rate of 20,000 ops (orders per second). Designed to support contemporary applications, Sei aims to expedite the widespread acceptance of digital assets. The recent launch of their public Pacific-1 mainnet in August has garnered attention and anticipation from the developer community.

Ankr’s Role with Sei RPC API Connections

Ankr’s Sei RPCs (Remote Procedure Calls) serve as a bridge connecting wallets, user interfaces, and dApps to the Sei blockchain. These RPCs function as intermediaries, transmitting on-chain data between Sei nodes, dApps, and end-users. This facilitates essential operations such as transaction execution, wallet balance retrieval, and ownership data extraction.

The Sei RPC endpoints provide developers with a direct channel to the Sei network, eliminating the need for them to navigate the intricacies of setting up Sei nodes on their own. Ankr’s offering includes a geo-distributed Sei RPC, underpinned by blockchain nodes operating globally, ensuring minimal latency and dependable connections.

Benefits for Developers

Opting for Sei as a foundation for dApps necessitates access to Sei node data. Ankr’s RPC addresses this requirement by:

Simplifying Node Operations: Ankr’s Sei RPCs negate the need for developers to establish their Sei nodes, saving them considerable time and effort.

Providing Access to Advanced Tools: Subscribers to Ankr’s Premium RPC Plan gain immediate access to a suite of advanced tools, including the capability to handle up to 90,000 Sei requests/min, high request priority, global node locations, telemetry, debug mode, a dedicated support portal, and WebSocket (WS) functionalities.

Empowering Applications: Ankr’s RPC facilitates the connection to a cluster of high-performance nodes essential for the development and operation of dApps with Sei blockchain functionalities.

Strengthening the Sei Network: Ankr’s integration will bolster the Sei network on a global scale by simplifying development processes and expanding the node infrastructure.

In the near future, Ankr’s RPC service will feature Sei as a supported option, allowing users to interact with the Sei chain using standard EVM JSON RPC methods.

Binance to Delist Multiple Trading Pairs Including ANKR, IOTA, LRC, Effective September 1, 2023

Reflecting the dynamic nature of the crypto industry, Binance, a global frontrunner in cryptocurrency exchanges, has declared the discontinuation of multiple spot trading pairs. The adjustments are scheduled to be implemented on September 1, 2023, as confirmed by an official statement from the Binance Team, released on August 30, 2023, at 16:15 UTC.

Details of the Removal

The trading pairs to be removed are as follows:

At 03:00 (UTC) on September 1, 2023: ANKR/BNB, CVC/BUSD, EPX/BUSD, HIVE/BUSD, IOTA/BNB

At 04:00 (UTC) on September 1, 2023: KLAY/BUSD, LRC/BNB, MBL/BUSD, MTL/ETH, UMA/BUSD

The announcement also stated, “Users can still trade the above assets on other trading pairs that are available on Binance.”

Impact on Spot Trading Bots

For traders who utilize Binance’s Spot Trading Bots services, it’s crucial to note that these services will also be terminated for the aforementioned trading pairs. The termination will occur at the same times as the delisting of the pairs: 03:00 (UTC) and 04:00 (UTC) on September 1, 2023. Binance “strongly advised” users to update and/or cancel their Spot Trading Bots “prior to the cessation of Spot Trading Bots services to avoid any potential losses.”

Implications and Considerations

While the announcement did not specify the reasons for the removal, such actions are generally taken due to low trading volume or other market factors that make the pairs less viable for the exchange. Traders and investors should be aware that the removal of these pairs could impact liquidity and trading strategies, particularly for those who rely on automated trading systems.

Regional Restrictions

The announcement included a disclaimer stating that “Products and services referred to here may not be available in your region,” highlighting the importance of regional regulations and availability in the cryptocurrency market.

Major Spikes Could be Coming for Binance Coin (BNB), Axie Infinity (AXS), Monero (XMR) and Four More Altcoins: Santiment

Crypto intelligence firm Santiment says that significant price spikes could be coming for seven different altcoins based on under-the-radar data.

Santiment says that an excessive number of short-sellers are piling into altcoins, raising the probability of an incoming short squeeze.

A short squeeze occurs when a large number of traders try to short an asset, and then get hit by an unexpected price bump which triggers a cascade in liquidations and a price rise thereafter.

The analytics firm says that excessive shorts, plus negative funding rates on exchanges are threatening the bears when it comes to Binance Coin (BNB), Axie Infinity (AXS), Monero (XMR), NEM (XEM), Ankr, SiaCoin (SC) and DigiByte (DGB).

“We’re seeing a notable rise in leveraged short positions across different #crypto assets currently. Average exchange funding rates are negative for altcoins such as ANKR, XEM, SIA, XMR, AXS, DGB, & BNB. If these shorts are liquidated, it can lead to major price spikes.”

Source: Santiment/Twitter

Looking at Bitcoin, Santiment sees some bullish on-chain metrics looming behind the scenes for the largest crypto asset by market cap. According to the firm’s data, BTC is flying out of exchanges at a rate not seen since 2018, which could suggest that another major liquidation event is less likely than price action would suggest.

“In the midst of Bitcoin’s 10-week price retrace, its ratio of supply on exchanges has dropped to its lowest level since November 2018. Traders moving BTC to cold wallets continues, and this milestone points to less risk of a continued major selloff.”

Source: Santiment/Twitter

Santiment also points out that Bitcoin whales, or entities with 1,000 to 10,000 BTC, have accumulated over 40,000 coins in the last two days, equivalent to roughly $1,689,160,000.

“Bitcoin has rebounded, and is +$1,000 in price the past 5 hours. Now sitting at $42.4k, this comes after whales have accumulated 40k more BTC in the past 2 days alone. They now are back to owning the same amount from before their dump began at $49k.”

At time of writing, BTC is trading at $42,229.

Bitcoin, Ether, Major Altcoins – Weekly Market Update August 2, 2021

The total crypto market cap added $71 billion to its value for the last seven-days and now stands at $1,608 billion. The top 10 coins were all in green for the same time period with Polkadot (DOT) and XRP (XRP) leading the pack with 31.9 and 22.4 percent of price increase respectively. Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading at $39,530 while ether (ETH) is at $2,589.


Bitcoin closed the trading session on Sunday, July 25 at $35,400 and after five consecutive days in green managed to closed the seven-day period with a 11.4 percent increase and 21 percent up from the $29,300 low registered on July 20.

The coin moved above all short-term EMAs on the daily chart in the aftermath of what was, according to many veteran traders, the final capitulation before the bull run re-start.

On Monday, the BTC/USDT pair went parabolic on the news that the largest e-commerce company in the world Amazon was getting ready to accept bitcoin and other cryptocurrency as a payment method in the coming months as well as to start working on its own digital asset project. Bitcoin jumped 14 percent to $40,500, but retraced 8 percent of the move almost immediately once Amazon denied the rumors. Still, it touched the $40k mark for the first time since June 16.

Buyers, however, were not that quick to capitulate and on Tuesday pushed the price further up to $39,350 or another 5.8 percent. The RSI and Stoch RSI indicators were both on overbought territory while 24-hour trading volumes were declining.

The mid-week session on Wednesday came with another attempt to break above $41,000, but again sellers were there to react. BTC closed at $40,000.

On Thursday, July 29 the coin remained flat in the zone below the 100-day EMA.

The move was followed by another solid price increase on Friday. After falling to $38,270 in the early hours of trading, Bitcoin climbed all the way up to $42,224 and added 5.5 percent or $2,060 to its valuation. It is worth mentioning that the coin broke the bearish market structure and closed above the previous high thus forming a higher high on the daily chart.

The weekend started with a small pullback to $41,500 on Saturday, but still, BTC ended the month of July 17 percent higher, fully engulfing the previous monthly candle.

Then on Sunday, August 1, it dropped further down to $39,870, losing another 3.4 percent.

What we are seeing midday on Monday is a third consecutive day in red.


The Ethereum Project token ETH closed flat at $2,185 on Sunday, July 15, but that did not stop it from adding 15.3 to its value on a weekly basis. The move helped it surpass the 21-EMA on the weekly timeframe and also break above the falling wedge formation, usually a bullish reversal signal.

On Monday, the ether continued to rise. It climbed up to $2,228 at the daily candle close after hitting $2,430 during intraday on the already-mentioned false Amazon rumor.

The Tuesday session was a good one for bulls as well. The ETH/USDT pair first dropped to $2,150 in the early hours of trading, then recovered in the evening pushing its price further up to $2,300.

The third day of the workweek was when the coin reached the important daily/weekly timeframe resistance right below $2,400. That key zone was one of the most actively traded in the last few months providing support and resistance on multiple occasions, including the last registered peak from early July.

The leading altcoin closed the day flat after trading in the wide $2,240-$2,345 range.

On Thursday, July 29, it made one more step in the upward direction, this time to the zone above the Fibonacci 23.60 level at 2,380.

The Friday session was no different and the ether continued to increase in value forming another green candle to $2,456. The ETH/USDT pair was now forming a bullish W pattern on the daily chart with a breakout line around $2,800 around the June high and the Fibonacci 38.20 level.

The first day of the weekend came with 11th consecutive day in green for the altcoin and a fresh new monthly high – $2,528. The month of July was closed with a 10 percent increase.

On Sunday, August first, the ETH token hit $2,697 but sellers quickly absorbed the buy orders and pushed the price down to $2,550 at the candle close.

As of the time of writing, the coin is trading slightly higher – at $2,585.

Leading Majors

One of the most popular cryptocurrencies from the last bull run, XRP started to grow again in the last few weeks and quickly reached #6 on CoinGecko’s Top 100 list.

The XRPUSDT pair added 18 percent to its value for the last seven days and is now 44 percent up from its July bottom, currently trading around $0.75.

The $0.75-$0.80 area is a solid resistance that is visible on the weekly timeframe. It is where the altcoin peaked back in November, 2020 and again in February, 2021. It is also where the price of XRP found stability during the May market crash.

Next target in front of bulls, even the above zone is surpassed, will be $1.1.

Potential support at $0.65.

Altcoin of the Week

Our Altcoin of the week is Ankr (ANKR). The blockchain node hosting provider jumped with 61 percent during the last week and is now trading near the important $0.1-$0.11 support/resistance level.

The ANKR coin re-entered the Top 100 list and is now situated at #97 with a total market cap of $744 million. It peaked at $0.107 on Sunday, August 1.

The most probable reason for the recent surge is the recent listing on Binance US as well as the announced improvements in the Ankr’s Developer API, which is now also available on the Polygon ecosystem.

As of the time of writing, the ANKR/USDT pair is trading at $0.95.

Dusk Network Announces Partnerships with Harmony and ANKR

This week, Dusk Network will embark on DuskCon, its first-ever conference. The conference, despite being a flagship, is being well-supported by industry players with Harmony, Binance, ANKR, NPEX,  Aztec, ZCash, and LTO Network backing it.

ANKR is a blockchain platform that works to make blockchain deployment easier for developers in a variety of ways. 

Harmony works towards offering scalable and fast open blockchain for decentralized applications and also confirmed the news following the announcement by Dusk Network.

“… Harmony also has plans to apply the zero-knowledge modules developed with our on-going partnership with Dusk to mobile payment verifications, privacy preserving transactions, and many more.” said Stephen Tse, a representative for Harmony.

Details About the Conference

The conference, which will take place on April 9, 2021, from 15:00-17:00 CET and targets both the existing network users as well as potential new users. The conference aims to not only explore the current use of the network and also the possibilities for it moving forward.

Dusk Network is actively working to ensure that its user base is carried along while they move into the future.

Speaking on the importance of user engagement, Dusk Network’s tech lead Emanuele Francioni explained why platforms like theirs need to carry users along. 

“Setting up a decentralized blockchain network requires community building, engaging them in what you are working on. Let them see the bigger picture you are working on, although you cannot always reveal everything. We follow a strategy where we communicate every step we make and involve our community base. From setting up the right tools for governance, funding of community idea’s to their request for merchandise. We hear everything they say and try to incorporate their needs in our marketing and communication strategy” – said Emanuele Francioni.

Best Crypto Performers Amid a Bearish Week: BTT, ANKR, and DENT

As the global crypto market saw a bearish progression this week, BTT, ANKR and DENT stands as the best performers to date.

By and large, the entire market has experienced a huge dip in the past 7 days, and this is reflected in the global crypto market cap which has dropped from a high of $1.9 trillion to $1.66 trillion at the time of writing according to CoinMarketCap.

Bitcoin’s volatility, pressure, and counter pressure from both the bears and bulls respectively waded the bearish sentiment on the market as the cryptocurrency remarkably has a sustained 60% dominance on the market. Its fall therefore almost always has a ripple effect in the market.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is undergoing some losses and exchanging hands at $52,863.56, down by 0.14% in the past 24 hours.

Despite the market dip, however, three altcoins BitTorrent (BTT), Ankr (ANKR), and Dent (DENT) showed an unusual resilience, rising above all odds to close the week with positive gains to this point. While other altcoins also have positive gains, these three stand as the top earners for the week-to-date period.

BitTorrent (BTT)

BitTorrent (BTT) is a relatively low-capped altcoin that is backed by Tron’s Justin Sun and finds relevance as a peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing and torrent platform which has become increasingly decentralized in recent years. The coin is currently trading at $0.003278, up 0.72% in the past 24 hours and by 70.21% in the past week.

The BTT token has a good history of closing high amid market plunges and its low market cap of $3.2 billion makes it one of the best altcoins investors stacks up on.

Ankr (ANKR)

Ankr’s performance in the past week is marked by a 255% increase in trading volume over the past 24 hours, and its current price of $0.12 comes after a 23.35% daily increase and a 71.13% weekly gain.

Ankr offers a solution that utilizes shared resources in order to provide easy and affordable blockchain node hosting solutions. With a defined real-world product offering, the coin’s momentum might just be sustainable in the long term.

Dent (DENT)

Dent (DENT), the native token of dent wireless, a broadband service provider is arguably the best altcoin performer of the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization. The coin has amassed a 153.3% increase within the last 7 days, and though it is worth as low as $0.01006 at present valuations, it is trading up to more than 14,000% from its all-time low price of $0.00007049 attained a year ago.

ANKR/CRV/STORJ Price Analysis – March 24,2021

On March 23, the top US cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase announced that ANKR, CRV, and STORJ will be made available for trading on Coinbase Pro accounts.

Except for CRV in New York State, all Coinbase-supported jurisdictions will provide support for ANKR, CRV, and STORJ. If the liquidity conditions are met, trading will start on or after 9 a.m. Pacific Time (PT) March 25.

But currently, these three tokens ANKR, CRV, and STORJ cannot be traded on and Coinbase mobile apps.

But being included in the Coinbase Pro list will undoubtedly have a positive stimulus effect on the prices of the three coins. ANKR, CRV, and STORJ have performed very strongly in the past 24 hours, increasing by 42.57%, 23.73%, and 102.00% respectively.

Ankr (ANKR) price Analysis

ANKR is a blockchain cloud infrastructure platform based on the Ethereum token Web 3, which aims to lower the threshold for individuals, enterprises, and developers to participate in the blockchain ecology.

Since the beginning of February, its price has soared 1000% from the low of $0.011 on February 1 and reached its all-time high(ATH) of $0.12 yesterday. The current price has retraced, is trading at $0.096.

The MACD index is still in the bullish zone and will face resistance at an all-time high of $0.12 in the future. The Stochastic RSI index declined from the overbought zone and has slowed down, which means that a bullish crossover may form again in the short term and the price may continue to rise accordingly.

Curve DAO Token (CRV) Price Analysis

Source: CRV/USD Daily via TradingView

Curve DAO token(CRV) is created based on the Aragon framework of Ethereum (ETH) decentralized autonomous platform. There will be a staking mechanism. Its CRV token is mainly used for governance and value appreciation. It is an automatic market maker agreement with the purpose of enhancing the liquidity of the market and facilitating the exchange of specific assets based on Ethereum.

Curve DAO Token (CRV) has risen 19.88% in the past 24 hours, reaching a maximum of $3.277. The current price has retraced. At the time of writing, CRV is trading at $2.91.

Yesterday’s long green candlestick made CRV’s price firmly stand on the Exponential Moving Average ribbon. But the long shadow line of the candlestick indicates that there was a large number of selling orders once it reached over $3.00, and the bulls failed to push the price higher than $3.277. The first resistance level for CRV rise will be $3.277. If CRV breakthroughs this pressure level from the current price, the next pressure level will be $3.6.

The MACD index shows the bullish signal. Stochastic RSI has retraced from the 80 overbought zones and formed a bullish crossover, which means that in the short term, IOTA’s price is likely going to surge higher.

Storj(STORJ) Price Analysis

Source: STORJ/USDT Daily via TradingView

STORJ is an Ethereum-based token that provides users with a blockchain-based end-to-end distributed cloud storage platform. Users use private keys to manage data and achieve secure file storage without trusting centralized data centres, such as Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud.

The price of STORJ rose by 93.5% to $1.76 on March 23, reaching a new all-time high of $2.01. However, there are currently a large number of sell orders, and $2 will be an important resistance level. However, the MACD index is still in a bullish range, and it is possible that in the short term STORJ will create a new all-time high.

Stochastic RSI is retracing from the 80 overbought zones.

Coinbase to List ANKR, CRV, and STORJ

Key Takeaways

  • Coinbase Pro revealed it is preparing to list Ankr, Curve DAO Token, and Storj on its retail platform on Mar. 25.
  • The announcement has seen a significant number of investors rush to exchanges to get a piece of these cryptos.
  • These altcoins have risen more than 40% in the last few hours and may have more room to go up.

Share this article

Coinbase is adding fuel to the bull run as it continues listing more tokens to its retail platform. The San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange revealed that it would add support for Ankr, Curve DAO Token, and Storj, sending prices into higher highs.

Tokens Moon on Coinbase Listing

In a recent blog post, Coinbase Pro announced that starting on Mar. 23 users will be able to transfer Ankr, Curve DAO Token, and Storj to their respective accounts. Trading will kick-off two days later only if the “liquidity conditions are met.”

Once the required supply of ANKR, CRV, and STORJ is met on the cryptocurrency exchange, all of these altcoins will be available for trading against Bitcoin, the US dollar, the Euro, and the British Pound.

If successful, Coinbase Pro will make these cryptocurrencies easy and accessible to a wider audience.

After the announcement was made, the price of Ankr, Curve DAO Token, and Storj shot up. ANKR and CRV rose by more than 40%, while STORJ stole the spotlight after a 100% upswing.

Ankr, Curve DAO Token, and Storj US price chart

Ankr, Curve DAO Token, and Storj are the latest beneficiaries of the well-known “Coinbase Effect.” This is a phenomenon where a token’s price skyrockets after being listed on the San Francisco-based exchange.

SIMETRI Research

Although Coinbase is not the biggest trading platform in the market, its reputation and popularity play a vital role in the massive price jumps that cryptocurrencies go through when added to this platform.

With this in mind, market participants must implement a robust risk management strategy when trading ANKR, CRV, and STORJ. Even though these altcoins may have more room to go up, insiders who bought in earlier are likely to dump their holdings on the new surge of retail investors.
