Beam (BEAM) | Rating: 8/10 | Outlook: Positive
Beam is a privacy concious cryptocurrency that uses the MimbleWimble protocol. It is through this technology that the project hopes to achieve the scalability and privacy. The MimbleWimple protocol integrates several concepts into one hybrid blockchain. This creates a network that offers improved privacy and efficiency. For performance and scalability, MimbleWimble removes unnecessary transactions while simultaneously combining intermediary transactions. Beam held no crowdsale ICO or any pre-mine. Altough they are rewarding early investors and the team through block rewards. Beam has a supply of nearly 263 million tokens, which the project uses on a deflationary emission schedule. Beam ensures that decentralization occurs on its network by becoming ASIC-resistant for the first 18 months. This means GPUs can mine Beam. The team has been active and have been meeting milestones in their roadmap. You can verify this by checking out their GitHub repositories. BEAM is listed on a number of exchanges and is doing over $1 million in daily trading volume. The order books are relatively liquid on the likes of Binance and HotBit. Price history has been relatively volatile so traders should be careful when taking on large positions of BEAM. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.
PirateChain (ARRR) | Coin Report | An Altcoin Trader's Handbook | Rating: 7/10 | 29th September 2019
Welcome to the 36th Coin Report. In today’s report, I will be assessing the fundamental and technical strengths and weaknesses of PirateChain. This will be comprised of an analysis of a number of significant metrics, an evaluation of the project’s community and development and an overview of its price-history. The report will conclude with a grading out of 10. PirateChain was conceptualised within the Komodo Discord and launched in August 2018 as an independent blockchain within the Komodo asset ecosystem. It was launched with no premine or ICO and utilises Delayed Proof-of-Work for consensus on the Equihash algorithm. Further, it is 100% private, with transparent transactions unable to be made on the network. Regarding supply emission, it has a steep emission curve, with block reward halvings every 270 days, culminating in a maximum supply of 199.99mn ARRR. The current block reward is 128 ARRR with 1-minute block times.

Kyber Network (KNC) | Rating: 8/10 | Outlook: Positive
The Kyber Network is a protocol that provides its users the ability to convert or exchange digital assets, tokens, and cryptocurrencies. While you can use Kyber Network as an exchange, you can also transfer tokens from one person to another. Also, when you move tokens through the Kyber Network, they don’t have to match what the receiver wants. Kyber Network can perform the exchange for you during the transfer. The Kyber Network Crystal, KNC, is an ERC20 token. To manage a reserve on the Kyber Network, a Reserve Manager has to purchase KNC. Every time an exchange takes place on the network, a small portion of KNC is charged as a fee. These fees are partially used to pay for the operational costs of the platform. They’re also used as an incentive for third-party entities which bring additional trade volume into the Kyber Network. 226 million KNC were minted for the ICO with 60% going out to those who participated. This outstanding supply will change over the next few years as KNC are burned. The Kyber network has some pretty strong team members with experience in blockchain technology and software development. It also has the likes of Vitalik Buterin as an advisor. Kyber Network successfully released its testnet beta in August of 2017, and just a few months later launched its main net. KNC is listed on a number of exchanges although the bulk of the volume is done on Binance. There are strong order books here which means that you will have reduced slippage. KNC is still quite volatile when compared to similar sized altcoins so traders should still be aware. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.
Zcoin (XZC) | Rating: 7/10 | Outlook: Positive
Zcoin is a privacy focused cryptocurrency that was originally built on the Zerocoin protocol. However, given a number of vulnerabilities in that protocol, they recently moved to a new "Sigma" Protocol that was launched in 2019. Transactions are made private by a privacy enhancement in the protocol called "minting". Before you are able to send transactions, you have to mint new coins. Given that all coin’s transactions originate from a newly minted coin, it is hard to track the origin. Privacy on Zcoin is made possible through the use of Zero Knowledge proofs. You also have Tor integration as well as their recently released "Dandelion" protocol. This will further help to cement user privacy on the network. ZCoin uses a the Merkle Tree Proof of Work algorithm (MTP). This is a memory hard algorithm that is considered to be ASIC resistant and hence less prone to centralisation. Zcoin also has a masternode architecture with their "Znodes" (require 1,000 XZC to stake). In compensation for running this full node, the Znode will receive 30% of the newly minted Zcoins. The team behind the Zcoin protocol is quite extensive experience in blockchain engineering, software development, cryptography and many more. The developers have also been hard at work if you take a look into their GitHub repository. When it comes to markets, XZC is listed on a number of exchanges including MXC, Coinex, Binance, Huobi etc. There appears to be reasonable liquidity on these exchanges which will ease execution. However, XZC is still volatile so trade with caution. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.
