JASMY/USD forecast: Building JasmyCoin trading volumes may be setting stage for price rebound

Jasmycoin (JASMY) has been spiralling downwards for over a year, losing more than 99% of its value since its $1.8 peak at the end of May 2021. At the time of writing on 4 November 2022, the coin traded at $0.005728.

However, its trading volumes have been on a rise, up at $119m on 4 November 2022, surpassing its 31 July 2021 high of $97m.

With a number of projects on the way, can the cryptocurrency pick up its pace?

Let’s take a deep dive into the jasmycoin universe, including the latest JASMY/USD forecast round-up.

What is Jasmy/USD?

Jasmy is a Tokyo-based IoT company that specialises in data management, and the safe purchasing and selling of data. It was established in April 2016 and dubbed “Japan’s bitcoin”.

The company is headed by former Sony (SNE) executives Kunitake Ando and Kazumasa Sato, and Hiroshi Harada, a former employee at KPMG AZSA LLP.

The Jasmy platform combines blockchain and Internet of things (IoT) technologies “to provide an infrastructure that allows anyone to use data safely and securely”.

In an interview with Binance, Jasmy’s CFO, Hiroshi Harada noted that the blockchain’s main purpose is to “create a mechanism/platform which allows all users to take ownership of their own data in a secure and private manner.

“Instead of letting a handful of big tech corporations take control of such sensitive data, Jasmy aims to help enable a world where everyone can feel safe and secure about the use of their own data.”

The platform allows for the safe storage of personal information through its Personal Data Locker (PDL) which provides users with full ownership over their data. In addition to that, Jasmy also has a Secure Knowledge Communicator (SKC), its core service responsible for the achievement of data democratisation.

Jasmy's ecosystem explained

Merchants pay users who store their data on Jasmy for access using the platform’s native cryptocurrency, JasmyCoin (JASMY), which can be used by users for investment purposes, governance and metaverse utility. JASMY is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum (ETH) ecosystem.

In the future, Jasmy also aims to provide IoT solutions to manufacturers interested in the smart home market and local governments in pursuit of a smart city.

The maximum number of JASMY coins is capped at 50 billion, with over 4.7 billion tokens in circulation, based on data provided by CoinMarketCap, as of 2 November. According to the platform, the token has a market capitalisation surpassing $24m.

A dip in the price trend

Historical JASMY/USD chartJasmycoin started its journey well, surging by around 230% in just four days, up from $1.3024 on 12 February 2021 to its all-time high of $4.2929 on 16 February 2021 as the coin was listed on Gate.io.

In the next four days, however, JASMY dropped more than 58% to $1.7. It surged in the following weeks, jumping by 67% to $2.9628 by 2 March 2021, ahead of its listing on the Jubi exchange.

After falling by around 39% to $1.8 on 7 March 2021, JASMY managed to surge past the $2 barrier as the project joined GitHub, a platform where users could discuss it.

By 24 April 2021, JASMY had lost over 50% of its value, falling to $0.9866, a then all-time low. The token continued to move sideways before skyrocketing to $2.1586 on 6 May 2021 following a staking campaign organised by Gate.io, which ran for 14 days between late April 2021 and early May 2021.

Since the mini-hike at the start of May 2021, JASMY has been struggling to pick up pace, embarking on a bear dip and losing over 97% of its value, down to $0.05456 by 20 June 2021.

In the final quarter of 2021, JASMY saw a brief spike, in line with overall positive market sentiment and its listing on the crypto exchange Coinbase, as its price surged 409.7% to $0.2781 on 3 November 2021.

The positive trend diminished as the token entered the new year, with its value falling by 95% by the start of March 2022. Since then, JASMY has been trading in bear territory at $0.005728, as of 4 November 2022.

Why the dip?

A few analysts brought up a number of reasons as to why JASMY had crashed in June 2021.

Martin Škorjanc, the CEO of NiceHash, told Capital.com that the bearish trend was likely driven by unfriendly crypto news in Japan and the fact that Jasmy Inc. decided to release too many tokens at the same time with no solid mechanism for managing their circulation.

The token’s unfamiliarity among investors was also a reason for its price to significantly drop, Dr Pooja Lekhi, Professor of Global Financial Institutions, Risk Management Approach and Financial Management at University Canada West said.

“Secondly, some rivals have advantages over Jasmy. IOTA crypto was an early mover in this space with many established partnerships. Therefore, it took more time for Jasmy to prove its worth.”

News driving the Jasmy/USD rate

On 31 October 2022, JasmyCoin was listed on the Stealth crypto exchange making it eligible to trade with more than 600 other assets. This saw the token’s trading volume reach an all-time high of $99.4m on the day.

On 5 September 2022, Jasmy announced that the token became the official sponsor of the Japanese professional football club, Sagan Tosu. In addition to becoming a sponsor, Jasmy also launched the Sagan Tosu Fan Token, a new cryptocurrency that uses non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and is based on the Jasmy blockchain, thus seeing the company enter an entirely new market.

In an interview with Binance recorded in early September 2022, the blockchain’s CFO, Harada, noted that Jasmy was exploring the idea of launching its NFTs onto other broader marketplaces such as Binance NFT, OpenSea and Magic Eden in the future, thus further expanding their niche.

Harada also mentioned a number of projects that Jasmy is working on in the third quarter of 2022, which have the potential to influence the future of the JASMY/USD forecast including:

  • The development of the DD coin, the Japanese Yen-backed stablecoin that will be incorporated into the ecosystem
  • The development of the Platinum Data Happiness Discovery Project, that will award users who participate in the project JASMY tokens and help them identify which data is tied to their happiness through the use of artificial intelligence

JASMY/USD forecast 2023 and beyond

At the time of writing, the algorithm-based forecasting service Wallet Investor gave a mixed jasmycoin to the US dollar forecast. The site noted that JASMY was “a bad long-term investment”, expecting the token to fall to $0.000350 in 2023 but surge to $0.009099 in 2027.

DigitalCoinPrice on the other hand gave a more positive JASMY/USD forecast. Based on its analysis of past price performance, the website predicted that the JASMY/USD forecast for 2022 could reach $0.00706 by the end of the year and surge to an average of $0.00949 in 2023.

Its JASMY/USD forecast for 2025 showed the cryptocurrency reaching $0.0149 on average and $0.0179 in 2027. The platform’s long-term JASMY/USD forecast for 2030 expected the cryptocurrency to surge to $0.0316 on average.

The founder of SmartBlocks and host of Cryptonized, Mark Fidelman, told Capital.com that in the long run the token has potential to surge due to it being known as “the Japanese bitcoin”.

“I wouldn’t be a buyer at this point, but a token to watch,” Fidelman added.

Anndy Lian, chief digital advisor at the Mongolian Productivity Organisation and author of NFT: From Zero to Hero, also brought up the fact that because JASMY is known as the local bitcoin, it is supported by many.

He noted that in order for JASMY to grow, the company must start to develop it “outside of Japan and grow their footprint in key market”, noting:

“Additionally, I do hope to also see their enterprise services get more adoption instead of moving into offering fan token. They should focus on real utilisation according to their mission and this is the only way the project will grow in value.”

When considering JASMY/USD predictions, it’s important to keep in mind that cryptocurrency markets remain extremely volatile, making it difficult to accurately predict what a coin or token’s price will be in a few hours, and even harder to give long-term estimates. As such, analysts and algorithm-based forecasters can and do get their predictions wrong.

We recommend that you always conduct your own due diligence on the asset before trading, looking at the latest news, a wide range of analyst commentary, and technical and fundamental analysis. Keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. And never invest money that you cannot afford to lose.

Fungible after all? Duplicates may disrupt NFT industry after Ethereum Merge

Fungible after all? Duplicates may disrupt NFT industry after Ethereum Merge

The Merge is the most anticipated event in the crypto industry in years, but could the multibillion dollar non-fungible token industry become an unexpected casualty?

The expected “Merge” of the Ethereum blockchain this week could raise the risk of fraud and scams in the market for non-fungible tokens such as Bored Ape Yacht Club as analysts warn original and new versions of the tokens known as NFTs could confuse buyers.

The US$200 billion Ethereum network accounted for 70% of NFT trading activity in August, making it the world’s leading blockchain for such marketplaces run by companies like OpenSea.

However, the Merge of Ethereum to a proof-of-stake (PoS) network from a proof-of-work (PoW) will create duplicates of the NFTs from the original network, something the unscrupulous could take advantage of, Anndy Lian, author of the new book “NFT: From Zero to Hero,” told Forkast in an interview.

Scams are already prevalent in the NFT industry, which lacks oversight or regulatory protection, and any added confusion could generate more. Lian said some exchanges or marketplaces might temporarily stop transactions to address any complications or confusion that arise.

The Merge

The current Ethereum PoW network involves crypto mining companies using energy-gobbling computer farms to solve cryptographic equations that validate transactions on the blockchain, for which they are rewarded with Ether.

The shift to PoS – in which users validate transactions through “staked” ether – is expected to speed up and slash energy use on the network, which may mollify some critics who say the blockchain industry contributes to global warming.

However, Ethereum miners are less than happy as they see a business model evaporate that  leaves them with redundant and expensive computer farms that cannot be repurposed. Hence, some have pledged to fork the network and create a concurrent PoW Ethereum network.

This is where the potential NFT confusion comes in. All existing NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain will be duplicated on the new PoS system, but if a PoW fork exists, the original NFTs will continue to exist on that network as well.

And this is not just hypothetical, exchanges have had to explain to users what their policy will be regarding duplicates.

Real deal

Leading NFT marketplace OpenSea, which had about four times the sales volume over the last 30 days of its nearest competitor, Magic Eden, announced it was “solely supporting NFTs on the upgraded Ethereum PoS chain.”

Competing marketplace, Rarible, has taken a different approach, saying it recognizes the authenticity of any copies of NFTs created in the same wallet address when they were held on Ethereum.

Rarible noted another potential issue, saying the aggregate number of NFT collectibles may increase, which could depress the value of collections.

“It’s impossible to predict what the actual outcome will be, but it’s highly likely that duplicate NFTs will cause confusion,” said Rarible’s chief strategy officer and co-founder Alex Salnikov in an ­email to Forkast. “Especially for less experienced NFT collectors.”

Déjà vu

This scenario is not without precedent in the NFT market. One of the most popular NFT collections, CryptoPunks, is actually a re-issue of the original — now known as V1 CryptoPunks — to fix a bug in their programming.

However, as V2 CryptoPunks grew to be one of the largest NFT collections, a significant market in V1 versions grew among collectors who were looking to own a piece of NFT history.

CryptoPunks creators, Larva Labs, tried to squash this secondary market using legal means, but ultimately the V1 community won out and both versions can now be traded freely.

Ultimately, Lian believes the market will follow the PoS network as it is recognized as the “official version” of Ethereum.

The upside

The good news for would-be environmentally conscious NFT investors is that PoS is estimated to be roughly 99.95% more energy efficient than PoW, according to the Ethereum Foundation.

“This may cause a new, environmentally conscious user base to adopt the technology which would in turn help drive greater mass adoption of NFT and Web3 technology,” said Rarible’s Salnikov.

“Increasing activity on Ethereum may also bring about new innovative use cases for NFT technology and drive the development of new tools designed for the growing Web3 creator economy,” he added.

That could be good news for buyers whose NFTs denominated in Ether have dropped in value against the U.S. dollar since a peak in November.

But Lian said he is skeptical about the Merge turning the current NFT bear market around.

“I think that’s very wishful thinking.”

Liquidity crunch may loom for Bored Ape-collateralized loans as floor price slides

Liquidity crunch may loom for Bored Ape-collateralized loans as floor price slides

Not every NFT collection is facing the same issue, but due to the collection’s outsized influence it could have a significant impact on the rest of the Ethereum NFT ecosystem.

The floor price for Bored Ape Yacht Club non-fungible tokens, a leader among NFT collections, has fallen to an eight-month low, raising the risk that dozens of the NFTs used as collateral for decentralized lending service BendDAO may be forcibly sold.

That scenario could then trigger a cascade of further liquidations, said Anndy Lian, author of the new book NFT: From Zero to Hero, in an interview with Forkast.

BendDAO is a peer-to-peer platform that allows users to front NFTs as collateral for Ethereum loans for roughly 30% to 40% of the NFTs floor price — or the minimum price to purchase one of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs on the open market.

Currently, 121 of the 227 Bored Apes collateralized on BendDAO — 2.27% of the entire collection — are considered to be at risk of liquidation as the collection’s floor price nears the level at which the tokens are valued on the platform.

With Bored Apes the second highest-selling NFT collection, Lian said a liquidation of this size would only put further downward pressure on the collection itself, others on the network, and even on the price of Ethereum itself. Combined with existing macro-economic pressure likely facing the crypto market this year, that could spell more grief for investors.

“That downstream issue [could] then create a really, really bad winter for everyone else next year,” he added.

Sick apes

BendDAO rates the risk level of a collateralized NFT via a so-called “health factor,” which is a ratio of the individual NFT’s value compared to the collection’s floor price. When that metric falls below 1, the token is automatically entered into a liquidity state for 48-hours to give the owner the chance to pay off the loan and interest to earn the token back or place it up for auction.

In response to the liquidation threat, BendDAO said Monday in a blog post they would be adjusting the liquidation threshold for these assets to 70% of the floor price by Sept. 20 over four stages with the first adjustment to 85% taking place on Aug. 30.

They also said they would be shortening the auction period to just 4 hours to improve liquidity for auctions.

“We are sorry that we underestimated how illiquid NFTs could be in a bear market when setting the initial parameters,” the BendDAO blog post read. “In the past several days, we got tons of feedback and suggestions from the community.”

The BAYC collection’s current floor price of 68.48 Eth marks a 55% plunge from a high in early May of 153 Eth, which Lian attributes to two main factors.

Merge factor

“Number one is that the overall market is not in the best condition,” he said. “Number two is there are still people with doubts on Ethereum 2.0. This adds some anxiety to people who are holding onto NFTs and using it as a collateral.”

Ethereum 2.0, usually referred to as “the Merge”, will involve the world’s second-largest blockchain mainnet transitioning from its current proof-of-work consensus mechanism to a proof-of-stake system. This change will make the network vastly more energy efficient, but will make Ether crypto miners effectively redundant, which has caused some miners to push back against the transition.

“It is actually a big concern for a lot of NFT speculators because the chances of them selling their NFT or BAYC at a certain high price is not going to come anytime soon,” Lian said of the sluggish sales figures.  “This is worrying.”
