Opolis, a project building a next-generation employment ecosystem for the self-sovereign worker, today announced a new partnership with Fortmatic to utilize web3 identity authentication. The partnership will allow Opolis members to easily access their employment accounts with their email or phone number and have their identity authenticated through Fortmatic on the Ethereum blockchain.
Features of Opolis’ Fortmatic Integration
Through membership with one of Opolis’ Guilds, or Decentralized Employment Organizations (DEOs), freelancers, creatives, consultants and gig workers can access the same high-quality benefits and services as full-time workers while remaining independent. Opolis will offer health insurance, cryptocurrency, and traditional retirement plans, tax compliance automation and more to Guild members.
Through the Fortmatic collaboration, Opolis will also offer Guild members the ability to:
- Onboard the Opolis employment ecosystem easily with an email or phone number;
- Securely connect to Opolis’ platform through Fortmatic’s identity (ID) authentication;
- Stake Opolis DEO membership using an authenticated identity;
- Create and access a Fortmatic wallet for token storage and trading;
- Connect with other web3 dapps utilizing a Fortmatic ID.
Opolis members will have the option to use Fortmatic’s web3 integration; the alternative is creating a traditional web2 username and password for account access.
“Our team is excited to be able to offer these services. Opolis is building the most powerful collaboration of web3 technologies ever assembled. Fortmatic has a world-class team and has the user-friendly experience we need to onboard everyday people into the future of employment.”
– John Paller, Opolis Founder

Apr 11, 2020 at 13:38 // News Surprisingly, Ethereum dropped to $152 low after a sharp move to a high of $175. About 48 hours ago, ETH rebounded at $140 low to reach a high of $175. Buyers made three unsuccessful attempts to break the $175 resistance but to no avail. Buyers resisted as the price fell to $152 low. In other words, ETH fell to the support of the EMAs. In the meantime, the support is holding, as the market shows some bullish signals. An uptrend cannot be ruled out if the current support holds. A repeat of April 6 rebound, may occur above the current support. On the upside, if ETH rebounds, the price will revert back to $175 resistance. Ethereum can move up to the high of $225 if the $175 resistance is breached. Ethereum Indicator Analysis The current downward move was as a result of ETH reaching the overbought region of the market. Ether is above 80% range of the daily stochastic when the market reached a high of $175. Thereafter sellers appeared to push prices…Apr 11, 2020
Earlier this week, initial members of the Libra Association formalized a governance structure after holding their inaugural meeting in Geneva. The transition happened just days after seven high-profile participants, including Visa, eBay and Mastercard, chose to leave the organization. Libra’s setback happened amid general regulatory upheaval in the crypto industry: In October alone, United States authorities fined EOS developer Block.One for holding an unregistered securities offering and halted TON — the largest private token offering — over similar charges. Related: TON’s ‘Force Majeure’ Clause — Is Telegram About to Refund Investors? Regardless, Facebook’s idea for creating an accessible stablecoin for a wider, international audience lives on. Earlier this month, a group of developers unveiled its plans to push for Libra’s mission without Facebook by launching a permissionless fork. But the social media giant itself is not giving up either. In fact, on Oct. 23, its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, will finally testify before U.S. regulators regarding the salient digital currency project. A quarter of the initial Libra members have dropped out When Libra was first unveiled in June this year, it…Oct 21, 2019
One of the most “unpopular battles” in the crypto universe is definitely one of Ripple. The efforts of the company to prove that XRP isn’t a security became a prolonged battle. This exact battle could hold the key to XRP’s future and it has been held forth again. Be it as it may, there has been a lawsuit that may present Ripple as an issuer and the seller of the coin. Do not forget, XRP is one of the largest by market cap. At the time of writing the market cap of the coin was $10,33 billion and XRP price was $0,24. It is growing by 2.09% at the time of writing. Security or not, the investors will be the ones who will judge the final price. However, analysts say that even a victory for Ripple in the case might not bring an end to its troubles with XRP. CTO David Schwartz is convinced that Ripple’s strongest lawyers will take care of the lawsuit with their “strong words.” Ripple company has been accused of running an illegal ICO. On August 5, 2019,…Jan 21, 2020
Bitcoin (BTC) was trading around $9,575 as of 20:00 UTC (4 p.m. ET), gaining less than a percent over the previous 24 hours. After Tuesday’s rapid 8% drop in less than five minutes on high sell volume, bitcoin’s prices have steadied. At 00:00 UTC on Wednesday, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization was changing hands around $9,528 on spot exchanges like Coinbase. Ten hours later, it staged a small run-up to $9,650 yet low trading volumes dashed any hopes of a substantial rally. Bitcoin is below its 50-day moving averages, signaling a technical sideways bearish sentiment.

Crypto analysts draw chart patterns, utilize technical analysis indicators, and much more to try and predict future price movements in assets like Bitcoin and altcoins. One specific technical analysis indicator that has called every Bitcoin top and bottom throughout the bear market with as much as 86% accuracy, has just signaled that a big drop could be imminent. Started From the Bottom Now We’re Here: Is $7,500 the Top in Bitcoin? After starting off 2020 with a powerful rally, Bitcoin and the rest of the cryptocurrency market experienced a catastrophic collapse as the public learned about the coming impact of the coronavirus on the economy and everyday life. Investors sold off every asset in a panic, fleeing to cash in order to weather the coming storm. The selloff took Bitcoin down to a previously unthinkable $3,800. The unexpected move shocked investors, who had witnessed Bitcoin price trading above $10,000 just a couple weeks prior. But once that “bottom” was put in the leading cryptocurrency by market cap quickly nearly doubled in value to roughly $7,500 where the current rally is…Apr 9, 2020
Ethereum has seen a slight rejection from its recent highs in the time following its decline from just below $200 Analysts are noting that there are multiple separate technical factors that point to an imminent breakdown One such factor is a major decline seen in the cryptocurrency’s buying pressure, which has been dissolving throughout the past several days and weeks Ethereum has been closely tracking the price action seen by Bitcoin in recent times. This has led the crypto to climb higher over the past couple of days before facing a slight rejection at its highs that were set yesterday. This recent price action has come as multiple bear-favoring factors begin emerging, including a rising wedge pattern, high-time-frame resistance, and weakening buying pressure. The confluence of these factors does seem to suggest a breakdown is imminent, although it is a possibility that the strong support that has been established around $185 could be enough to slow its descent. Ethereum Tracks Bitcoin, But Analysts Watch Multiple Bearish Factors At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading down just under 2% at…Apr 27, 2020
Chainlink (LINK) has by far been one of the most bullish cryptocurrencies throughout both 2019 and 2020, with the crypto rallying to highs of nearly $5.00 in mid-February, which is around when the aggregated market lost its momentum and began to crater. This market-wide downtrend has proven to be devastating for virtually all cryptocurrencies’ market structures, but it is important to note that it has been particularly impactful to LINK. In the near-term, one top analyst is noting that the crypto is currently in a precarious position that could ultimately allow it to see a significant bout of capitulation in the days and weeks ahead. Chainlink Grinds Lower as Crypto Market Shows Signs of Weakness Bitcoin has been firmly guiding the cryptocurrency market over the past several days and weeks, which has made all altcoins prone to seeing significant downside. Chainlink – which set fresh all-time highs last month – has been particularly impacted by this market-wide downturn, plummeting from highs of nearly $5.00 to lows of under $1.60 that were set at the bottom of its recent selloff. At…Mar 21, 2020
