Technical analysis of ETH/USD for 08/07/2019:

Crypto Industry News:

The leading cryptocurrency stock exchange Binance announced that it is switching from the Omni protocol to the ERC-20 protocol in customer portfolios for Stablecoin Tether, according to the official announcement.

To make a difference, Binance claims that in the case of payouts and deposits in Tether, on July 4, 30-minute shutdowns were scheduled to commence at 08:00 AM (UTC).

The communication stresses that the Ethereum ERC-20 protocols will now be a standard, and exchange users will not be able to withdraw the Omni-based tether; however, Tether with the Omni protocol can still be deposited by sending a link to the old Tether protocol in Binance.

The Poloniex cryptographic exchange announced yesterday also support for ERP-20 based Tether deposits. Poloniex also offers deposit and withdrawal options for Omni protocols, along with Ethereum and Tron. According to Poloniex, using the Ethereum protocol for withdrawals and deposits is faster and cheaper than relying on the Omni network.
