The crypto market had lost immense value at the time of writing, with the total market cap having declined under US$1.6 trillion, CoinMarketCap data suggested.
Major cryptocurrencies, boasting multi-billion dollar market cap, and including BTC, DOGE, and SHIB, were in red. This highlights the risks that ail this ultra-volatile sector, which at one time commanded a total market cap of nearly US$3 trillion. That said, not all assets were in red, with data showing a few lesser known cryptos like CenterPrime (CPX) and SafeFloki (SFK) rising heavily in the past 24 hours.
Another lesser known crypto, which although was in red, but which trended heavily as of writing, was Philcoin (PHL).

The project’s website talks about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It claims to support a number of philanthropic activities through partnerships and community building.

The key offering is PHILApp, which the project states can be used for messaging and transacting. The app, it is claimed, can work on low bandwidth, making it suitable for third world nations. There is also a mention of another service, PHILChat. This chatting service is claimed to be wholly encrypted, with no risk of intrusion into users’ data. Philcoin project states PHILChat runs using an in-house protocol — “Streaming Control Protocol”.
Another product listed in the whitepaper is PHILBulb, an “anti-microbial” UV light.
Philcoin token (PHL)
PHL is a BEP-20 coin, which is said to be used as a rewarding token within the project’s ecosystem. It can have a maximum supply of 5 billion tokens. It is stated that the supply of Philcoin crypto will be in a phased manner. Burning of token and use in staking are mentioned in the whitepaper.
