Newsletter | 31 October 2019By Artis Turba

Welcome to the Artis Turba monthly newsletter where we want to keep you updated with the latest news and developments at Artis Turba. We know newsletters tend to build up in inboxes so we aim to keep them short and factual. 

Platform News

We are very excited to share some light on the coming changes already underway and expected to be completed and implemented by year end, in what we call Artis Turba V2.0. After implementation our community will enjoy a more refined Cryptocurrency Exchange in line with global standards.

We are overhauling our trading engine and off-chain database to greatly enhance speed and performance overall. Deposits and withdrawals will be lighting fast, and what is much more, our community will enjoy deeper liquidity on our order books to reduce price slippage and to promote the trading of cryptocurrency between our local South African community and our wider global community.

We will also be refreshing and realigning the Artis Turba brand to ensure that it represents what we do and how we do it across all platforms.

Market Sentiments

The price of Bitcoin faced selling pressure for most part of October, dipping as low as $7,450 (ZAR 114,000) on Friday the 25th of October 2019 before a speech made by Chinese President Xi Jinping that called for the accelerating adoption of blockchain technology throughout the Chinese economy.

The news was met with widespread optimism throughout the Bitcoin market and seen as positive re-affirmation that blockchain technology is here to stay. The move saw Bitcoin surge over 30% to a high of $9,740 (ZAR 158,000) in the following hours after the address by the Chinese president. Investors should remain calm and rational as the call for Chinese adoption of blockchain is not an endorsement by the Chinese government for Bitcoin itself.   

ARTIS and AARP (Artis Affiliate Rewards Program)

We share trading fees with our community through AARP. To enable AARP all you need to do is own and hodl ARTIS, our native exchange token. The earnings are automatically credited to your account daily based on the last 24-Hour's trading volume and is paid out in each currency that trading fees are collected in. You can view your full detailed AARP history by visiting “My AARP History”. The AARP History page gives a summary of pay out per 1 ARTIS and your total pay outs.

Promotions

We are giving away 1,000 ARTIS for all first time ZAR deposits. If you have made a 1st time ZAR deposit and you are yet to receive 1,000 ARTIS for this – it’s because we need to log an appropriate ARTIS/ETH address on your account. To do this, please visit your “Deposit ARTIS/ETH” page and the system will log an address for you. Our admins will then pick up the appropriate address to send your ARTIS to.

Market Sentiments

The price of Bitcoin pulled back from the recent consolidation zone after dropping to the current level around $8,000 (ZAR 125,000) which is considered a significant support level for Bitcoin. Given the past of Bitcoin, we have always seen a fake downside breakout before significant gains are realized. We remain bullish about Bitcoin here at Artis Turba.

Be sure to follow us on our social media channels (links at bottom of this email) and to be on the lookout for this announcement.

The price of Bitcoin remains in the consolidation zone around $10,000 (ZAR 160,000 – 170,000) as the market awaits further developments in the #1 cryptocurrency. We are seeing a pick-up in buying interest which signals to us that the market is expecting price gains in bitcoin.
