Market Downtrend Continues, Australia Gets First Accredited Blockchain Courses, EU Nations Sign Joint Blockchain Declaration and Huobi Gains DLT License for Gibraltar

According to data from CoinMarketCap, total market capitalization is sitting at $117 billion USD at press time. This is the lowest we've seen the market cap since roughly August of 2017, though at that time the market was in the ascendant, and it's not so clear right now. Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading for $3680, XRP for $0.32, Ether (ETH) for $97, and Stellar (XLM) for $0.12. Bitcoin Cash (BCH), still reeling from its recent hard fork which coincided with the massive market downtrend, has lost about 80 percent of its value in the last month and is currently trading for $118.

According to media outlet Finder, Australia now has its first accredited blockchain courses. Consisting of eight modules, including six core and two electives, the Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain was developed by an institute known as the Blockchain Collective. Blockchain Collective co-founder Nathan Burns commented:

"We are honoured to bring accredited blockchain education to the Australian and International markets. This is just the tip of the iceberg with regard to implementing blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. I feel the timing is comparable to the World Wide Web in the early 1990s. And today, 55% of the world's population have internet access and use it on a daily basis. Just imagine where we will be in the next 10-20 years, now there is an accredited course."

Seven EU member nations - France, Italy, Spain, Malta, Cyprus, Portugal and Spain - have signed a declaration on Tuesday to promote the adoption of blockchain. Signed in Brussels, an excerpt from the declaration reads:

We believe that Distributed Ledger Technologies, along with other emerging technologies like 5G, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things could be a strong contributor that will help Southern European countries transform the way that we experience as well as to expand their digital ecosystem including Research & Development and innovation.

Cointelegraph reports that Singapore-based crypto exchange Huobi has gained a Digital Ledger Technology (DLT) license in Gibraltar. A press release states that "the new license gives Huobi the authority to store and transmit digital assets on behalf of clients worldwide". Huobi is hopeful to debut its service in Gibraltar in the first half of 2019.
