🤝 Genesis has loaned $553 million in crypto since March
In a recently released report OTC trading firm Genesis revealed that it had loaned $553 million worth of cryptoassets to institutions since March. As of September, the firm had more than $130 million in active loans, with more than 60 percent of that amount denominated in Bitcoin ($BTC). Genesis noted that some of the largest loans were made in Ethereum ($ETH to hedge funds which typically use the borrowed assets for short positions. As of the end of the first quarter ETH based loans made up 42 percent of outstanding balances, but the amount fell to only 4 percent as of the end of the third quarter following an 80 percent decline in ETH prices. Genesis pays between 5 percent and 7 percent to borrow cryptocurrencies and then charges about 10 percent or 11 percent to lend.
💱 LINE’s crypto exchange lists its own token for trading
Bitbox, the crypto exchange launched by Japanese messaging giant LINE, announced that it is listing its own token, LINK, for trading, joining bitcoin ($BTC), ether ($ETH), and tether ($USDT). Bitbox announced in August that it had launched a proprietary blockchain network called LINK Chain, which utilizes a combination of delegated proof-of-stake and practical Byzantine fault tolerance as its consensus mechanism.

Ethereum Supply Snapshot
Y2050 supply (est.)
% Y2050 Issued
Switch to PoS expected at ~100m coins; 0.5-2% PoS emission thereafter.
Proof-of-Work initally, Proof-of-Stake ultimately
Estimated supply at PoS introduction
Estimated date of PoS introduction
~2019. See details.
Eventual PoS issuance
0.5%-2.00%, see details.
Ongoing emission type
Decaying emission, then PoS constant inflation
To date, the Ethereum community has prioritized various system properties over producing a concrete monetary policy, but there's nevertheless some rough consensus on what eventual monetary policy will look like. Further, it is expected that with upcoming system upgrades, various aspects of monetary policy will be finalized.
The consensus today is that Ethereum will move to Proof-of-Stake issuance in the next 2 years1 or so, at which point roughly 100 million ETH2 will have been mined. It is not well-defined what the issuance rate will be after the switchover to Proof-of-Stake, but the range of 0.5%-2% has been targeted3. Note that this perpetual inflation will accrue proportionally to existing ETH holders who decide to let their ETH participate in new-block 'validation'. Critically, from an investment perspective, this means that existing holders can prevent dilution without having to explicitly purchase new coins.
1: comments on Casper & sharding timeline
Vitalik Buterin states that sharding is roughly 3-5 years away, and that Casper (full proof-of-stake) will be released well before sharding. OnChain Finance therefore estimates Casper release at roughly mid 2019.
2: proof of work issuance table
From this table, it's clear that Ethereum's proof-of-work generated supply will likely be around 97million when proof-of-stake is released.
This is a number ranging from -1 to 1, which represents the degree to which movements in the two assets are historically correlated. Specifically, OCFX is calculating the Pearson Coefficient over the daily returns of the two assets. This is calculated over the time-range the chart is set to, and will be re-calculated if the chart's time-range is changed.
A negative number indicates that if asset A moves in one direction, asset B has historically most likely moved in the opposite direction. Similarly, positive values indicate prevelance of same-direction moves.
The Bletchley 10 is composed of 10 of the largest cryptoassets, weighted by marketcap. As such, it tends to track the 'large-caps'.
The Bletchley 20 is composed of 20 medium-capitalization cryptoassets.
The Bletchley 40 is composed of 40 small-capitalization cryptoassets.
Together, these indexes give good at-a-glance understanding of how large-caps are performing relative to medium/small-caps over the past 24 hours.
