Hold until gold

A new year brings new possibilities for the cryptocurrency market. There were over 16000 cryptos in existence at the start of 2022. However, it can be hard for both new and existing investors to navigate the coins to buy, sell, and hold. Before the current optimism of the new year was a considerable slump. December 2021 saw a big dip for almost every cryptocurrency, from Ethereum (ETH) to Ripple (XRP) to HUH Token (HUH).

The start of 2022 has seen many coins rally and gain ground back that was lost in the final part of 2021. HUH Token, for example, has risen 27% from its New Years Day low. However, for some cryptocurrencies, the downtrend has been part of a larger pattern and for outside reasons. The most notable of these is Ripple (XRP).


Ethereum (ETH) Will Break New Ground With ETH 2.0

Ethereum is the second-most-popular cryptocurrency and enjoyed a good year in 2021. It hit a new all-time high of over $4800, and its price increased by more than 350% throughout the year. This could partly be due to the huge leap in performance of the market in general, as more and more people became involved in cryptocurrency. Its usage for the exploding NFT market also cannot be ignored.

2022 could be a huge year for Ethereum. The transition to an upgraded ETH 2.0 is scheduled for Q1 of 2022, and with testing being well underway, it looks as though it will finally be implemented. This could and should provide ETH holders with a considerable boost.

Something to watch out for could be the cryptocurrencies dubbed “Ethereum killers.” Coins such as Cardano (ADA) and Solana (SOL) also surged in 2021. Some believe they aim to bring down ETH, but others claim a more collaborative approach could be more successful.

Can Ripple (XRP) Shake off the SEC?

Ripple had a very volatile year in 2021. It rose over 800% at the start of the year, from $0.21 to $1.80 in January of 2021. Since then, it has been up and down whilst its court case against the Securities and Exchange Commission rolls on. Its proponents claim it has been unfairly targeted, whereas the SEC allege that Ripple executives sold $1.3 billion of XRP, which the SEC labelled an “unlicensed security.”

There could be a massive breakout if, at some points, it has seemed like a big if, to XRP holders, Ripple can either beat or settle with the SEC in 2022. Jeremy Hogan, a lawyer who is part of the Ripple community, believes the case won’t extend beyond April 2022. However, should the case end in the early part of the year, XRP should be re-listed on the leading cryptocurrency platforms. If this was to happen, experts predict a sharp rise in the price of XRP, up to $3 and beyond. Victory in court would also set a precedent as the first for a decentralised exchange against a central authority.

HUH Token (HUH) Looks for Even More Growth

HUH Token is only a month old, and in that short time has already come a long way. In its white paper and its roadmap, it has laid out its grand ambitions. After January the 6th, HUH will be listed on Uniswap. HUH Token has been labelled the first “utimeme” coin; a utility coin with the popularity and fun of a meme coin. The team behind HUH has its eyes on even more rapid growth in 2022, with hundreds of influencers on board in an attempt to showcase HUH’s unique features.

Chief among these is the intelligent referral system, which gives existing holders 10% of the first investment of anyone they recommend HUH Token to. HUH also rewards holding for long periods; a small percentage of each transaction is shared amongst holders.

S.E.E. intend to produce its own content and events in the module as well as making it available to third-parties. Axiom Space, who in January 2022 won NASA's approval to build a commercial component of the International Space Station (ISS), will undertake the construction of SEE-1. The module will dock on Axiom's commercial arm, named Axiom Station, which will also host other commercial ventures, including space tourism.

As the economy continues to recover from the prolonged pandemic.

By Rohit Vaid
The Centre might bestow infrastructure as well as industry status to new sectors to boost several pandemic hit industries in the upcoming Union Budget. Industry insiders said that several sectors and sub-industries such as hospitality, automobile retail, specific diganotics facilities and companies engaged in installation of EV charging stations amongst others might get the status.
The infra tag will enable these sectors to avail tax breaks, incentives and credit on lower interest rates. "Sectors which are in greenfield or which would need capex augmentation to help them overcome the pandemic can be looked from the lens of an infrastructure sector," said Jagannarayan Padmanabhan, Director and Practice Leader, Transport & Logistics, Crisil Infrastructure Advisory. "Also many of the already identified sectors need a sustained policy push which will help them get visibility both in terms of quantum and the time period of applicability."

Till now, activities associated with laying of power and telecom transmission and distribution lines, roads, highways, railways and construction of facilities such as hospitals, affordable housing, power generation units, water treatment plants, SEZs and certain type of hotels amongst others were given such status.

Besides, these sectors are a part of harmonised master list for infrastructure sub-sectors. However, in April 2021, exhibition-cum-convention centre was included in the list. "Given the focus around electric vehicle, and need for significant investment in charging stations, if the government adds the sector in infrastructure list, the benefits arising out of it will be significant," said Vishal Kotecha, Director, India Ratings and Research. "Infra tag on sectors increases ability to raise funds, access to dedicated funds and lenders, foreign capital, lower interest rates among others."

A team is working to produce safest medicine for covid treatment.

A team led by chief scientist Ravi Shankar, is working on two combinations to provide the safest medication to coronavirus patients. "Experts say that a combination of antivirals with different mechanisms can be more effective to counter the viral pandemic. We are working on two combinations - Umifenovir with Molnupiravir (an antiviral) and Umifenovir with Niclosamide (anti-parasitic)," he said.

Molnupiravur drug has received only Emergency Use Authorisation in India and abroad. Though its usage showed reduced hospitalisation during clinical trials, its biggest drawback are the side-effects, he added.

"Now, we are trying to keep a low dosage of Molnupiravir in its combination with Umifenovir which may weed out the side-effects such as the risk of cartilage and muscle damage. If successful, it will make Umifenovir more effective in Covid-19 treatment," said the chief scientist. The other combination is Umifenovir with Niclosamide.
