Authorship is a platform for all those who is involved in the publishing industry and simple readers. The purpose of the project is to solve the problems of the conventional book publishing industry. Thus, authors have the ease to get their books published; publishers can easily locate authors seeking their book to be published; translators can find popular books and translate them; and readers can easily find and read books of any liking. And the official project launch is set on June 1. Back in April Beta v2.0 was released: it brought a new responsive design, a new interface and features.

On the other hand, the platform recognized the importance of the exchange the Authorship token is listed. A close partnership with Bancor exchange has provided liquidity to ATS and a stable environment where any user can trade ATS with and from ETH or any other token that is a part of the Bancor network. The initial exchange ATS got listed on - HitBTC, was reluctant to address the user complaints on trading, depositing and withdrawal, so the contract was not extended further.

Authorship Beta platform

Currently, the Beta platform has 85 items of books of different genre. The platform supports the purchase with both ATS and USD. To learn more about the project, you can visit the official page here. At the moment of publication, Authorship market parameters are as follows:

Average price 0.007751 USD
Market cap 759,392 USD
Volume (24H) 4,259 USD

Most Crypto-Optimists Live in Norway, Bitflyer Study

According to bitFlyer's poll on future of crypto, europeans believes cryptocurrency has future
24 April 2019   83

Most Europeans believe that in ten years digital currencies will continue to be in demand, but they do not have the same confidence about Bitcoin. This is reported by Cryptonews, citing a study of the bitFlyer.

10 thousand people from ten European countries took part in the online survey. Of these, 63% believe in a “bright future” cryptocurrency. However, not all Europeans are confident in the future of Bitcoin - only 55% believe that the first cryptocurrency will exist in ten years.

It is also noteworthy that, despite the fall in prices of most cryptocurrencies that lasted for almost a year, the majority of respondents positively assessed the prospects for the development of the market.

Most of the “crypto-optimists” turned out to live in Norway - 73% of the inhabitants of this Scandinavian country are convinced that a decade later, digital currencies will still be in society. This is followed by Italy (68%), the Netherlands and Poland close the top four (67% each).

But the exact form of cryptocurrency will exist, almost no one knows. Only 8% believe that they will become money, and 7% - a tool for investment or a means of preserving value.

The fact that Bitcoin is not generating as much support as other cryptocurrencies is in part a symptom of the market’s volatility, but is also a direct impact of the constant media attention that is associated to its volatility.

He also added that the study demonstrated how much remains to be done to increase public awareness of the benefits and opportunities of cryptocurrencies.
