Bullish movements in the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH) have reignited talk of a 2013-style double-pump rally that may send the price of Bitcoin (BTC) beyond $100,000. The uptick in prices hasn’t been restricted to the top two market leaders. Many altcoins are still rallying, and the ‘altseason’ indicator from Cointelegraph Markets Pro suggests that the trend may continue for some time. The overall cryptocurrency market cap now stands at $2.214 trillion and Bitcoin’s dominance rate is 41.9%.

The Israel-based social trading platform, that was launched in 2015 to provide communication and transactions for the internet of things (IoT) platforms and has a market capitalization of $1.4 billion, announced a new listing today.

In addition, eToro raised a $100 million in Series E round, more than doubling its funding to $162 million.

The new partnership aims to see a pairing of minds all working towards the production of a ‘permissionless mobility ecosystem’. For this, IOTA Foundation started a one week Google Design Sprint with Audi Denkwerkstatt — which is Audi’s Think Tank — in Berlin to explore Tangle-based use cases, build a low-level prototype and to gather customer feedback. The aim is to establish business models independently or in cooperation with others.

Together with +CityxChange start-up, IOTA will take part in the pilot project on the development of the smart cities in Europe, Horizon 2020.  Within the framework of the “smart city” concept from the EU, seven regions (Trondheim, Limerick, Alba-Julia, Pisek, Sestao, Smolyan and Võru) will integrate digital technologies to improve the energy-saving solutions over the next five years. + CityxChange will use IOTA blockchain to facilitate communication between various devices in order to ensure an environmentally friendly and sustainable urban environment. The project is planned to be launched in January 2019.
