Elliott Wave analysis of ETH/USD for 18/04/2019

Crypto Industry News:

Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), in cooperation with leading international companies, including from Microsoft, launched a neutral Token Taxonomy Initiative (Token Taxonomy Initiative). The initiative will seek to define tokens in non-technical and cross-industry terms, seeking to increase the importance of corporate tokens. The EEA describes itself as an organization aiming at developing open Blockchain specifications.

The members of the initiative reportedly include the global consultancy firm Accenture, the main banks Santander and JPMorgan Chase, the incubator Blockchain ConsenSys, the auditor Big Four EY, technology companies Intel, Microsoft and IBM, the consortium Blockchain R3 and others.

The new Token Classification Initiative aims to establish a common set of terms and definitions for tokens - regardless of which Blockchain they come from - as a basis for companies and programmers.

Standardization, argues EEA director Ron Resnick, can unblock the smooth use of tokens serving as a set of goods, financial assets, securities and services in corporate applications based on Blockchain. Apart from explaining the concept and scope of the tokens model, the initiative will try to deal with use cases, taxonomy as well as terminology and technical specifications.
