South Korean highway operator to install blockchain-based toll payments system.



KEB Hana Bank, one of the biggest commercial banks in South Korea, reached an agreement with the state-backed highway operator, the Korea Expressway Corporation, to install blockchain-based toll payments systems across the nation’s highways. According to the D Daily report, the project is expected to launch before the end of the year. The blockchain-based payment systems will connect KEB Hana’s smartphone banking app, Hana One Q, for motorists to arrange their toll payments, defer them, or even receive toll fee refunds.

The blockchain solution aims to remove cash-based or credit card payments.

According to the report, KEB Hana Bank and Korea Expressway Corporation in partnership will implement the blockchain solution with the aim to remove cash-based or credit card payments, in part due to the ongoing global pandemic that encourages them to offer contactless solutions. The expressway corporation and the South Korean bank want to use blockchain to share data to strengthen synergies along with the payment system project. 

Kwang-Ho Lee, head of the sales division at Korea Expressway Corporation, said that they would continue to expand customized contactless services to the public by applying blockchain technology. He added this is a part of the Korean version of the digital new deal policy to lead the global economy post-pandemic. 

Governments across countries acknowledge blockchain tech amid pandemic. 

As reported earlier, the South Korean government is encouraging blockchain technology and conducting several proof-of-concept projects to find a way to connect blockchain to the current system. Governments and private sectors across the world are taking a serious look at the various use of blockchain technology amid the ongoing global pandemic. The digital ledger tech is currently being utilized in many sectors across countries, including healthcare and logistics. South Korea had earlier revealed how they plan to use blockchain tech in the healthcare system.

Introducing OneSwap: On-Chain One-Stop Trading Platform



[Featured Content]

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) took the crypto field by a storm in 2020. The total value locked in various DeFi protocols is just under $10 billion, at the time of this writing.

If this doesn’t sound impressive, consider the fact that this number was just about $570 million in March. In other words, the market grew by an astounding 1607%.

Much of it was led by Uniswap, being the leading automated market maker and decentralized exchange. However, as the market matures, new solutions are coming to light and some of them aim to bring more than what Uniswap’s currently offering.

One protocol of the kind is OneSwap.

What is OneSwap and How is it Different?

OneSwap is a trading service platform based on the permissionless listing of decentralized exchanges (DEX). It also provides the good practices of automated market maker (AMM) projects, while also introducing an on-chain order book on the basis of the CFMM model to further improve the experience for AMM traders.

This particular combination provides users with the convenience of limit trading orders – something that Uniswap lacks and it also enhances the overall liquidity of digital assets.

The platform features an interactive and intuitive trading interface as well as a one-click currency issuance tool in the OneSwap Wallet which comes along with it.

Apart from the built-in wallet, the platform also comes with token repurchase and burn functionalities, on-chain governance, mining incentives, candlestick charts, and a depth map.

The public beta started on September 8th, featuring yield farming and transaction mining, while the official launch was on September 19th.

At the time of this writing, Oneswap boasts a total trading volume of more than $7.4 million since launch, where the total liquidity is around $36million.


OneSwap’s Architecture

Another important thing to discuss is the architecture of the protocol. OneSwap, deployed on each blockchain, comes with a series of capital pools. They are referred to with the transaction pair contract.

Each contract consists of three parts. Namely, these are the on-chain order book, the CPMM model which is the constant product market maker providing liquidity for that contract, and the equity tokens that record the privileges of the liquidity providers.

As soon as the liquidity provider injects digital assets in the capital pool of the given Pair contract, the latter will mint new equity tokens for the liquidity providers. The number of these tokens is based on the current size of the pool, as well as on the total amount of equity tokens that have been issued, as well as the current injections.

On the other hand, when the liquidity provider wants to retrieve their funds, the Pair contract is going to return the funds according to the corresponding proportion of the equity tokens and burn those equity tokens.

The ONES Token

OneSwap also has its ERC20-based governance token issued on Ethereum’s network and it’s called ONES.

It’s a deflationary token and according to the whitepaper, 40% of the transaction fees that are generated on the platform will be used to repurchase and burn ONES. This happens automatically and the burn goes through the BuyBack.

In addition, the on-chain governance of OneSwap happens through proposals and community voting where users who have enough ONES tokens (more than 1% of the total supply) can bring proposals up for discussion and votes. Any user who holds the token can vote against or for the proposal.

ONES now has been listed on CoinEx, Lbank, and MXC.


In general, OneSwap looks like an interesting project to consider in the current DeFi landscape. It does bring a few new exciting features, while also coming with the expected stack of technology that users are already accustomed to.

After Losing 7%, Ripple Struggles To Maintain Previous Support From September (XRP Price Analysis)



  • XRP dropped by 4.5% over the past week as it trades at $0.232 today.
  • The coin returned to the support at the .618 Fib Retracement, which supported the market in early September.
  • Against Bitcoin, XRP is attempting to keep itself above the 2200 SAT level.

XRP/USD – Market Returns To Early September Support

Key Support Levels: $0.228, $0.22, $0.215.
Key Resistance Levels: $0.235, $244, $0.257.

XRP fell beneath a rising trend line on Monday as it collapsed below the 100-days and 200-days EMA to return to the .618 Fib Retracement support at $0.228. This level had prevented the market from slipping further during the early September decline, and a break beneath here is likely to cause XRP to unwind toward $0.2. It’s currently down about 7% in the past two days.

Before breaking beneath the rising trend line, XRP was slowly grinding higher but was unable to overcome resistance at $0.257 (bearish .3282 Fib Retracement). This will now be the level to break if XRP would like to begin any sort of bullish momentum.

XRP-USD Short Term Price Prediction

If the sellers break the $0.228 level (.618 Fib Retracement), the first level of support beneath lies at $0.22. This is followed by support at $0.215 (downside 1.272 Fib Extension), $0.21, $0.206 (downside 1.414 Fib Extension), and $0.2.

On the other side, the first level of resistance lies at $0.235 (200-days EMA). This is followed by resistance at $0.244 (100-days EMA), $0.257 (bearish .382 Fib), and $0.266 (bearish .5 Fib).

XRP/BTC – Buyers Attempting To Defend 2200 SAT

Key Support Levels: 2200 SAT, 2170 SAT, 2111 SAT.
Key Resistance Levels: 2250 SAT, 2300 SAT, 2333 SAT.

The situation is quite troublesome against Bitcoin. In early September, the market found support at the 2275 SAT level. However, last week XRP penetrated beneath this support and fell further below the 2250 SAT.

Over the past couple of days, XRP continued to fall until support was found at the 2200 SAT level yesterday.

XRP-BTC Short Term Price Prediction

If the sellers break beneath 2200 SAT, the first level of support lies at 2170 SAT (downside 1.414 Fib Extension). This is followed by support at 2111 SAT (downside 1.618 Fib Extension), 2070 SAT, and 2000 SAT.

On the other side, the first level of resistance lies at 2250 SAT. Above this resistance lies at 2300 SAT, 2333 SAT, and 2400 SAT.
