Surfing the Crypto-Kosmos today, I got a little bit confused...                                                      

Apparently one has to be extra attentive to notice small differences in ticker names:   

In my former article, I already got a little bit confused about two slightly different ticker names : AMP and AMPL.

As you will see, there can always be a reason to even become a little bit more confused... :

Today, trying to use a converter to see the $ worth of one received tip in AMPL here in PublishOx, I bumped into another ticker slightly different from the other two before mentioned:

Apparently, I am not the only one to be confused by reason of those ressembling ticker names, see this article as a prove:

Professional investors are as likely as individual investors to mistakenly purchase the wrong stock by choosing a company with a similar name or stock market ticker symbol, according to new findings by Rutgers University‒Camden researchers. 


Vadim Balashov and Andrei Nikiforov, both assistant professors of finance at Rutgers University–Camden, found that in companies with similar names or tickers, five percent of their total trading volume was caused by news involving an unrelated company!

 AMB            is not         AMP        is not           AMPL !


                       What is AMBROSUS(AMB) ?            

Ambrosus is working to combine high-tech sensors, blockchain protocol and smart contracts in order to establish a community driven ecosystem allowing independent verification of the quality, safety and origins of products.





What is AMP(AMP) ?

Amp is described as the new digital collateral token offering instant, verifiable assurances for any kind of value transfer. Using Amp, networks like Flexa can quickly and irreversibly secure transactions for a wide variety of asset-related use cases. Amp claims to offer a straightforward but versatile interface for verifiable collateralization through a system of collateral partitions and collateral managers. Where collateral partitions can be designated to collateralize any account, application, or even transaction, and carry balances which are directly verifiable on the Ethereum blockchain, collateral managers are smart contracts that can lock, release, and redirect collateral in these partitions as needed in order to support value transfer activities. Amp supports a wide variety of use cases for collateralization, and also introduces the concept of predefined partition strategies, which can enable special capabilities such as collateral models through which tokens can be staked without ever leaving their original address





                         What is AMPLEFORTH(AMPL) ?

Ampleforth is a cryptocurrency which has an elastic supply. Elastic supply means that there is no fixed supply, and as demand for Ampleforth (AMPL) increases, more AMPL is issued to maintain stability. This stability makes AMPL more appropriate for smart contact transactions. However, unlike inflationary currencies, when demand increases AMPL issues new coins to holders based on their current holdings. For example, if demand for AMPL goes up 20%, AMPL holders will see their holdings grow by 20%, thus maintaining price-per-coin stability. This elastic supply protocol is based on Ethereum smart contract technology to ensure the automated issuance of new AMPL tokens on a daily basis, based on the changes in demand. While AMPL holders can earn more coins by simply holding and waiting for demand-linked inflation payouts, they can also provide AMPL tokens as liquidity for decentralized markets and exchanges.




As You can see, dear reader, everyday a newbie is becoming more and more aware and attent to remark slight differences in ticker names, meanwhile also learning  about their differences in value, use cases and other points...

Hoping to have added some more value for other newbies in Crypto Space, I keep having huge admiration for the  good skilled and  experienced writers in this great PublishOx Community.
