Messari CEO Receives Threat Calls After XRP s Market Evaluation Messari CEO Receives Threat Calls After XRP s Market Evaluation
On 24 January 2019, Messari, a cryptocurrency analysis firm, published a report revealing that the value of all Ripple (XRP) tokens combined was greatly overstated. The report was created based on data analysis from crypto exchanges and third-party crypto data services. Messari's report estimated that XRP's market capitalization was overstated as much as 48%, which is approximately an extra $6.2 billion. This would leave XRP with a market cap of $6.7 billion instead of the current value of $12.9 billion. If the report stands true, XRP would be put in the third spot instead of second after Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) in terms of market cap. This share was first seen by us on 2019-01-27 18:06:50.

Douglas County of Washington is Looking to Build a Blockchain Innovation Campus Douglas County of Washington is Looking to Build a Blockchain Innovation Campus
The Seattle Times, a local daily newspaper outlet, reported that officials of Douglas County located in central Washington, U.S. are looking to build a blockchain innovation campus. The Douglas Country Department of Commerce will be providing $50,000 in funds for the blockchain project. Multiple counties located in central Washington have been chosen by many crypto miners to set up their mining farms or rigs due to the cheap fee they pay for hydro-generated electricity. The decline in crypto's performance during the year 2018 caused some mining facilities to shut down as they could no longer be financially supported by the industry. For example, a blockchain firm called Giga Watt announced its bankruptcy in November 2018, allegedly owing more than $310,000 to the Douglas County Public Utility District.
