Top Social Gainers for Tuesday, February 19th, 2019
Here are today's biggest emerging stories in crypto, based on Santiment's data:
- ETH/Ethereum (2100+ new mentions in the last 24 hours)
ETH continues the week’s strong upward momentum, hitting a new month-high $149.33 earlier today.
The 2nd biggest crypto asset was changing hands at just below $150 for the last 24 hours, as some hope the run to continue ahead of the Constantinople hard fork.
- Afri (200+ new mentions in the last 24 hours)
In related news, a veteran ETH Core developer and Parity release manager, Afri Schoedon announces he’s quitting Ethereum, after some accused him of conflict of interests over his recent comments.
Schoeden criticized Ethereum’s roadmap and praised Polkadot, an interoperability protocol developed by Parity, which some claim stands to benefit from a slow Ethereum network.
“I am no longer coordinating hard-forks, building testnets, or contributing otherwise.” said Afri on Twitter: “I did not work on Polkadot, I never did, I worked on Ethereum. I did not hate Ethereum, I loved it.”
- Storj (50+ new mentions in the last 36 hours)
After turning mega bullish and hitting a 4 month-high $0.35 on Monday, Storj drops by 35% over the last 36 hours, landing at right around $0.225
Another, smaller pump got the late crowd’s hopes up earlier today, but the action quickly fizzled out. The coin is currently down 1% for the day.
- Ong (370+ new mentions in the last 24 hours)
Ontology Gas gets listed on Digifinex, prolonging its 4-day rally.
ONG skyrocketed after its Binance listing was announced last Friday, pumping the coin to a 4-month high $1.29.
While it’s dipped slightly since, the coin is still up 14.7% for the day, and a whopping 177.2% for the week.
- Stratis (130+ new mentions in the last 36 hours)
The Stratis community has ‘an honest and in depth conversation’ on the project’s subreddit about the platform’s roadmap, its fallbacks as well as current and future challenges.
The community engaged in a lengthy debate on a range of issues including lack of transparency, product-market fit, Stratis’ business model and more. You can check out the full discussion here.
- Iost (110+ new mentions in the last 24 hours)
Iost moons after the project reveals February 25th as the mainnet release date.
