根据我们从18个交易所的抽样调查中，随机抽取5个月的数据表明：是。 平台币作为平台回馈用户、增加平台曝光度、加强用户忠诚度的一种应用代币，自BNB从2017年8月最低的0.11usd到最高25.18usd创下百倍神话之后，各大平台纷纷开始发行自己的专属平台币，平台币呈现出遍地开花之势，同时也受到广大投资者的关注。在经历过几个月的发展时间之后，平台币的运作模式已经逐渐成熟。在今后，平台币预计会成为常规币种之一，本文对各主要平台币做了一个梳理，分析各平台币运作模式以及平台币内在价值。 各大交易所平台币对比 放大检视或下载2018年平台币价格分析(中文版） 统计数字会说话：上表提供了18个交易所/平台货币的核心信息。 我们取其中8份完整的数据，并将它们各自的ICO价格（以美元计算）与2018年前五个月的平均首日开盘价格进行了比较，结果显示该8种货币在2018年1月1日至5月1日的首日开盘价格，平均来说，比相应的ICO价格高出6.18倍！ （注意：在我们的计算中，我们已经排除了没有经历过ICO的免费平台币，并且排除了最高的样本[Binance，交易价格为ICO价格的72.25倍]和最低的样本[Huobi，交易价格为ICO的1.45倍]）。 所以问题是：「交易所实用型货币会是所有加密货币之中的”安全天堂“吗？」 目前主流的平台币主要分为分红币、回购币和其他币种。 分红币 分红型平台币类似于股票的股利，以平台交易手续费盈利按一定百分比为总量，以平台币为基数，向用户分红。例如时代币TMC、库币KCS、龙币DT、BIX等。 分红型平台币主要靠分红获利，其盈利状况和平台运营状态以及交易规模密切相关，币值难有较大的增幅，且分红模式会受监管的不利影响。 回购币 回购型平台币的投资逻辑如同加强版的比特币逻辑，相较于比特币的发行量恒定，回购型平台币总量会逐渐缩小到规定值，且具有一定的支付功能，如：支付交易手续费且有折扣，作为平台一种计价方式，购买其他数字货币，支付平台专属服务等。未来有打造成公有链的趋势，支撑平台产业应用，正宗物以稀为贵。例如：BNB、DEW、HT、BIG、ZB等。 回购型平台币相较于分红型平台币拥有更多的内在价值，一方面平台币可作为手续费支付方式且享有折扣；一方面平台将会按照约定回购平台币形成强大买盘，有些币种也会设置销毁机制；另一方面拥有平台币才可享受平台相应专属服务。因此，回购型平台币具有一定的增值潜力。但多数平台用利润进行回购，从财务角度而言，需要考虑税收和运营公司所在地的财会和法律等因素，透明性较差。…
After participating in an ICO, what any investor wants to know is: What should I do with the tokens I just purchased? The most obvious option is to wait for the project to be implemented and to spend the cryptocurrency on its services. But some projects offer more than one way to cash in.
For example, Playkey tokens can be spent not only to access high-quality games from low-powered computers but also to purchase hardware for mining. And in the long term, to sponsor pro-gaming teams, to watch broadcasts, for advertising, etc.
But to keep tokens under your pillow until you can sell them is not the most profitable strategy for an investor. Of course you need to bring the cryptocurrency you’ve purchased to an exchange. And here’s what you need to know about choosing one.
The Exchange’s Size
An exchange’s size is determined by the volume of trading on it. For example, a list of the biggest ones in October 2017 looks like this (they might rank differently on different platforms, since some lists include only exchanges, while others also include solutions that offer a more basic system of buying and selling):
- Bitfinex ($395,249,841 in 24 hours of trading)
- Bithumb ($319,516,760)
- Bittrex ($274,532,950)
- HitBTC ($166,998,519)
- bitFlyer ($132,556,799)
- Poloniex ($127,855,483)
- GDAX ($113,641,827)
- Kraken ($104,201,393)
- Bitstamp ($84,581,387)
- Binance ($82,573,733)
The size of a cryptocurrency exchange is one argument for its positive reputation, a sign of its security and ease of trading. Although, of course, not all risks can be foreseen: One of the first cryptoexchanges, Mt. Gox, controlled 70% of the bitcoin market in 2013, but it collapsed after a hacker attack took about $450 million out of its accounts.
The Exchange’s List of Cryptocurrencies
Bitcoins and ethers are practically everywhere. It’s never any problem to sell or buy them. But projects that are attractive enough for ICOs issue their own cryptocurrencies, and managing them is more complicated. You can always buy them at the project’s website, but it’s unlikely you’ll be able to sell them at a profit. For that, the token in question must be listed on an exchange (which generally raises the token’s price as much as 25%). Blockchain startups can’t go to all the top exchanges, so investors on an ICO should monitor a list of exchanges where a specific cryptocurrency will appear.
For example, Playkey tokens will definitely appear on Cryptopia, Evercoin, Coinexchange, and Coinlink Korea, and negotiations are underway for an agreement with one of the biggest exchanges, Bittrex
Of course, it’s not possible to foresee all the interesting projects that an investor will decide to invest in at the ICO stage. And devotion to a single cryptocurrency is short-sighted. So it’s worthwhile to choose exchanges that have a wider choice of trading pairs: exchanging bitcoins for dollars, ethers for bitcoins, bitcoin cash for ethers, and so on. Let’s say you’ve decided to trade Playkey tokens, but you want to invest a little in other cryptocurrencies too. Then it’s better to choose the reliable Bittrex with 264 trading pairs or the ambitious Cryptopia with over a thousand pairs.
Every exchange takes a commission on transactions. Usually it’s less than 1% of the transaction amount, but depending on each exchange’s trade volume and conditions, the amounts obtained and the prospects can vary widely.
For example, one of the lowest commissions on the market is on the exchange Bithumb (0.15%). It’s not based on trade volume, though many other exchanges give discounts to more active members. But only 10 trading pairs are represented on Bithumb. Investors have to decide whether they’re prepared to limit themselves in the future for the sake of low cost now.
You might also consider commissions for refilling your wallet and for withdrawing funds. Some exchanges offer different conditions for these transactions according to whether they’re conducted in dollars or in cryptocurrencies. For example, Bitfinex keeps a commission of 0.1% for the former, with a minimum charge of $20. It’s a good idea to estimate how often you’ll need to use fiat money.
Volume of Funds In and Out
The amount you can add to your account and how much you can take out of it is different on each exchange. And it depends on the amount of checks that a user has gone through. For example, if a user has only confirmed that user’s email address, then the volume in and out will be less, but if the user has confirmed the user’s phone number or provided his or her passport details, then the amounts will be bigger. The top exchanges have corporate user accounts, and money can be transferred from them to a company account.
One more important detail is the means for transferring funds in and out. For example, Bittrex only supports the use of cryptocurrency wallets, while Bithumb lets you add funds with a bank card and to withdraw money to a bank account.
The Exchange’s Location
Cryptocurrency exchanges can be accessed from anywhere in the world, but their location can nevertheless influence the course of trading. Some exchanges restrict certain tools to users from specific countries. Some deny service to them entirely — for example, starting on the 9th of November 2017, Bitfinex in Hong Kong will stop serving US citizens.
In addition, you should consider the possibility of future restrictions. For example, China is planning to introduce a regulation soon on cryptocurrencies, and this may not prove profitable for investors who have put their trust in Chinese exchanges.
A Few More Tips
Some key information is listed above, but absolutely do not forget about convenience: Look for exchanges that have a user-friendly interface and that are accessible via an app if trading from your phone is important to you. Some of the big exchanges, such as Poloniex, cannot brag about access across platforms.
And don’t forget to diversify your risks. Even if one exchange looks best to you after going over this checklist, you shouldn’t put all your trust in one exchange.
