Patent cases exchanged between Brazil and other countries since 2015

The importance of Brazil to patent applicants around the world is undeniable. It is the most important patent country in Latin America from a quantitative perspective. We took our data at Patent-Pilot to find out which foreign jurisdictions are highly connected with Brazilian patent law firms.

Here is what we found when looking at the numbers between 2015 and today (August 2019):

Brazilian firms received 28,961 patent cases from other countries during this time frame, and they sent 1,700 patent cases to firms abroad over the same period. In other words, they received 17 times more patent work than they sent.  In terms of number of cases sent, Brazil is in position 26 worldwide, while in the 10th position for cases received. This clearly demonstrates the high importance of the Brazilian market for international patent protection.

The United States is by far the most important partner country: 450 cases sent from Brazil (26% of all cases sent) and 11,534 received (40% of all cases received).

Next are Germany (69 and 3,864), Japan (84 and 2,440), France (17 and 1,833) and Great Britain (52 and 1,459). Looking at Europe overall, Brazilian representatives sent 256 and received 11,969. When considering European countries together, they are of similar importance as the United States.

Brazil’s patent case exchange with other Latin American countries is different: Brazilian firms sent out more (362 cases) than they received (102).

Please note:  Only published filings are taken into account for this research. There are, of course, a number of unpublished filings missing from the data.

The figures are based on a database provided by the European Patent Office (DOCDB), which covers filings from all around the world. However, there are some countries ( India, Thailand, and Vietnam, for example) where the dataset appears to be incomplete.

Ethereum Price Analysis: 17 May

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Ethereum‘s price witnessed selling pressure making its way to the market and pulling the value of the digital asset down by 16% within 16-hours. This devaluation was from $3,851 to $3,214. However, the stumbling price found some strength to recover and was currently trading at $3,501 with a market capitalization of $396.78 billion.

The Ethereum chart indicated that the asset had slumped to the early May levels since the correction set in. The value of ETH dropped to support at $3,218 which was strong support earlier in the month.

As the price bounced back from this support, ETH was now heading towards immediate resistance at $3,522. However, the asset may not be able to surpass this level and may consolidate between $3,347 and $3,522.

Reasoning

The signs of price consolidation were visible in the market. Bollinger bands after being diverted for a long time were now looking to converge. This was a sign of the reducing volatility in the market. Meanwhile, the signal line that had resided above the candlesticks, was now heading lower suggesting the price could trend lower.

Nevertheless, traders were trying to push the ETH market towards equilibrium. The relative strength index that was pushed down to the oversold zone was now trying to attain equilibrium as the buying pressure increased. At the time of writing, the indicator’s value was 49 – almost at a balanced state- this suggested that the buying and the selling pressures had evened now. However, the momentum has remained low and negative.

Conclusion

The Ethereum market has been seeing strong volatility push its value lower. As the digital asset recovers from this loss, the market may continue trading at the current price level as the buying and the selling pressures were leveled. ETH may test immediate resistance at $3,591 soon, but might remain under this level.

This ETH metric has dropped! Here’s how it affects Ethereum’s price

Republished by Plato

Published

on

The recent dip in Bitcoin and Ethereum’s price has led to a stagnancy in the ongoing altcoin season. The movement of the assets that were held dormant by HODLers has shifted the trend in the price rally. Currently, the price has dropped, however, the narrative for altcoins is likely to change, looking at the data from the chart.

The futures market structure of ETH currently reveals stablecoin growth, leading to growth in open interest. However, the growth in open interest is slower than the price rally, and the perpetual swaps’ funding is relatively low based on data from skew. Based on the below chart, the average funding is relatively lower, the funding rate seems to be inversely proportional to ETH’s price.

This could mean that the rally to $4000 was not driven by leverage in the case of Ethereum. ETH was not overleveraged, so that narrative is out. ETH was likely valued correctly, since now it is undervalued, below $4000. This also means that based on the OI and ETH funding and the on-chain metrics, ETH’s price is headed back above $4000. The number of ETH wallets HODLing 1000+ coins has hit a 4 year low of 6403, based on data from Glassnode.

Based on data from the above chart, the last time ETH’s number of addresses dropped, ETH’s price rallied. Following this trend would mean that Ethereum’s price is likely to increase. ETH is currently trading at the $3518 level, however, if the trend continues there may be a rally to the $4000 level.

The number of active Ethereum addresses signals has dropped after hitting a peak, based on data from the Etherscan chart. Additionally, 94% of HODLers are profitable at ETH’s current price level. There has been $175.38 Billion worth of large transactions on the ETH network as Bitcoin’s price drops and this signals a shift in inflow of investment.

The increasing active supply and the high transaction volume are evidence of the high social volume and bullish sentiment. With top altcoins like Litecoin, XRP, ADA and DOGE highly correlated to ETH, over 70% of the rally has had a bullish impact on altcoin’s price.

Cardano’s rally: These significant factors will take the alt down this road

Republished by Plato

Published

on

After hitting new ATH and the trade volume increasing several times over the past few weeks, ADA’s funding rate is still relatively low based on data from the chart of 8-hour funding rate. ADA is not over-leveraged just yet and there is room for vertical growth in price, without a significant risk of liquidations and domino effect.

Here's why Cardano's rally isn't over yet

Further, there is a consistent increase in revenue from staking and it is likely to grow as more ADA is staked and price increases. Unlike other alts, ADA’s rally has an ongoing bullish trend and this is anticipated to increase demand in the short term. ADA is now trading at the $2.15 level, after sustaining a nearly 10% drop in price in the past 24 hours. The trade volume has dropped by nearly 14% based on data from coinmarketcap.com.

Cardano has moved nearly $9 Billion in transaction volume and Ethereum has moved $24.8 Billion. At the same time, ETH network has charged users $88.9 Million and ADA has charged $18000. This shows the massive difference in network fees. Based on these numbers, ADA is 1938 times more efficient. Despite L2, ETH may not have fixed the fees issue with a competitor like ADA.

Despite a temporary drop in price, the transaction volume, fees and relevant on-chain metrics, ADA’s social volume and sentiment among traders signals there may be a recovery. The altcoin is currently trading at $2.16 and the sentiment is bullish.

The number of large transactions on the network is up by 6.14%. The network growth is nearly 4.31% based on data from intotheblock and currently close to 10% HODLers have held ADA for over a year. This number is anticipated to increase when more HODLers accumulate ADA through the dip. 96% HODLers are profitable at the current price level, additionally, since ADA is negatively correlated with BTC, the current drop in BTC’s price is a driving factor for ADA’s rally.

The momentum in the futures market of ADA is low, however, that relies on the price and the price has currently plummeted.

Based on the above chart, revenue from staking rewards hit a peak before dropping to the current $5.5 Million. Despite high volume of ADA being staked, the revenue has taken a hit, this is anticipated to change in the short term.
