SAN FRANCISCO, CA — (January 17, 2020) – BRD, the most secure cryptocurrency mobile wallet, announced today a new enterprise-focused blockchain service, Blockset, which will fundamentally realign BRD’s business model for the high growth demands of the financial services and banking industry worldwide. This move builds on BRD’s deep expertise and trusted brand in blockchain security, privacy, and infrastructure innovation along with the strong market trends in the fast-growing enterprise blockchain industry.

Blockset is a robust blockchain data integration platform offering a suite of tools that will enable existing engineering teams to build enterprise-grade blockchain applications, access on-chain data through a single API, and write transactions in near real-time on multiple chains in a fraction of the time, for a fraction of the cost.

“BRD’s consumer business now supports and keeps safe over three million customers worldwide with $6B USD worth in crypto assets,” said Adam Traidman, CEO and co-founder of BRD. “Today’s financial environment is rapidly supporting crypto assets, and with 90% of major banks now exploring crypto, it’s clear that there’s a quiet groundswell of new initiatives and opportunities within the enterprise blockchain segment,” he added. “That is why we developed our own proprietary platform (Blockset) which banks, financial services, and large crypto companies will now be able to leverage to accelerate their time to market and deliver enterprise solutions to scale on a global basis for a fraction of the development costs.”

Key benefits of Blockset include:

  • Accelerating the time to develop new blockchain products by automating on-chain data extraction, harmonizing and cleansing blockchain data, and delivering them into new enterprise crypto applications.
  • Reduce the hosting costs and development costs associated with supporting blockchains by providing major chain support and node hosting ‘out-of-the-box.’
  • Enable entirely new usage scenarios for all enterprises looking to consume blockchain data and write to blockchains for transactional application support.

Over 20 financial titans are already evaluating Blockset in a private pre-release program, including SBI Holdings, KPMG, and Ripple. BRD will also be bringing on key channel partners and global system integrators to accelerate Blockset adoption for the mega enterprises in the months to come.

Blockset is generally available worldwide starting today, with an initial focus on the existing financial and banking ecosystem, global accounting firms, and large blockchain enterprises, such as exchanges, new blockchains, and institutional custody services.

Major chain support is available now and into Q1 (Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Hedera, and Ethereum), with the top 15 chains being added by year-end 2020.

Existing BRD mobile app users will also be able to opt-in and enjoy the benefits of fast blockchain sync speeds and a higher level of usability thanks to Blockset.

“APIs are very critical to the future of financial services, especially in the nascent world of blockchain and cryptocurrency,” said Traidman. “We are incredibly excited to see how Blockset will enable both legacy financial institutions and new blockchain projects alike to create new and innovative offerings.”

Blockchain.com erhält die bisher größte Einzel-Investition von 100 Mio. USD

Published

on

Die in Edinburgh ansässige Baillie Gifford & Co. hat 100 Millionen US-Dollar in Blockchain.com investiert.

Der 110 Jahre alte Vermögensverwalter ist bekannt für seine frühen Investitionen in Tech-Firmen wie Amazon, Google und – besonders aktuell – Tesla. Laut Peter Smith, CEO von Blockchain.com, ist dies eine der ersten Investitionen von Baillie Gifford in ein Krypto-Unternehmen. Er sagte auch, dass diese Investition eine weitere Befürwortung von Kryptowährungen von institutionellen Investoren darstellt. Dies ist die größte Einzel-Investition des Blockchain-Startups bis heute (Stand: 21. April 2021).

Bisherige Finanzierung von Blockchain.com

Letzten Monat gab Blockchain.com bekannt, dass das Unternehmen in seiner Series-C-Finanzierungsrunde 300 Millionen Dollar eingenommen hat. Damit lag die Bewertung des Unternehmens bei 5,2 Milliarden US-Dollar. Dies folgte nur einen Monat, nachdem das Unternehmen 120 Millionen Dollar eingenommen hatte. Während dieser Runde kamen Louis Bacon und Kyle Bass als Investoren hinzu. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt wurde das Unternehmen mit 3 Milliarden US-Dollar bewertet. In diesem Zeitraum trat auch der ehemalige stellvertretende Stabschef von Präsident Barack Obama, Jim Messina, dem Vorstand des Unternehmens bei.

Die jüngste 100-Millionen-Dollar-Investition trägt zu den 1,5 Milliarden US-Dollar bei, die Blockchain.com seit seiner Gründung im Jahr 2011 eingenommen hat. Nachdem das Unternehmen während seiner ersten Series-A-Finanzierungsrunde im Jahr 2014 30 Millionen US-Dollar eingenommen hatte, kämpfte es nach dem Zusammenbruch von Bitcoin im Jahr 2017 mit der Kapitalbeschaffung. Aber bereits in diesem Jahr konnte das Unternehmen mehr Kapital aufbringen als im gesamten Jahr 2020.

Blockchain.com hat weltweit über 31 Millionen Nutzer in über 200 Ländern und unterhält 70 Millionen Wallets. Im vergangenen Jahr konnte das Unternehmen seine aktive Nutzerbasis um das Dreifache steigern.

Erwägung eines Börsengangs

Die Investitionen in Krypto-Unternehmen haben in diesem Jahr ein Rekordniveau erreicht. Dazu gehört vor allem der Börsengang von Coinbase an der Nasdaq. Am ersten Handelstag lag die Bewertung des Unternehmens damit bei über 100 Milliarden Dollar.

Je nachdem, wie sich die Aktien der Krypto-Börse weiter entwickeln, könnten andere Krypto-Unternehmen diesem Beispiel folgen. Dies ist etwas, von dem der CEO von Blockchain.com sagte, dass sein Unternehmen darüber nachdenkt. Smith erklärt:

„Das Unternehmen erwägt seine Public-Market-Optionen sorgfältig.“

Playboy betritt den NFT-Markt

Avatar

Published

on

Das Playboy-Magazin, eine Ikone der Männerunterhaltung, ist wieder da. Das Unternehmen wird bald seine ersten NFTs auf den Markt bringen.

Der Playboy möchte wie auch zahlreiche andere Unternehmen und Künstler von dem lukrativen und boomenden NFT-Markt profitieren. Darüber hinaus plant das Unternehmen, mit aufstrebenden Künstlern an neuen, originellen Kunstwerken zu arbeiten.

Playboy geht wieder an die Börse

Wie auch viele andere traditionelle Verlage litt der Playboy unter dem starken Rückgang der Nachfrage nach klassischen Printmedien. Im Jahre 2011 verließ das Unternehmen aufgrund von fehlenden Werbeeinnahmen die Börse. Allerdings ist der Playboy im Februar 2021 wieder an die Börse gegangen und möchte nun mit einem neuen Businessplan die Zukunft verändern.

Anfang April 2021 kündigte das Unternehmen Playboy an, dass Nifty Gateway nun ein offizieller Partner von ihm ist.

„Bei unserem Eintritt in die NFT-Branche können wir auf unsere lange Geschichte aufbauen. Wir haben zahlreichen Künstlern eine Plattform geboten, auf der sie sich selbst ausdrücken können.“

Playboy möchte NFT-Archiv erstellen

Der Playboy kooperiert mit Nifty Gateway, um mit seinem extrem großen Archiv, das zahlreiche Fotos, Interviews und andere Kunstwerke enthält, weitere Profite zu erwirtschaften. Außerdem plant das Playboy-Team, gemeinsam mit bekannten und talentierten Künstlern NFTs auf den Markt zu bringen.

Für einer der ersten NFT-Kollaborationen arbeitet der Playboy mit der Künstlerin Blake Kathryn zusammen. Sie wird extra für den sogenannten „Pride Monat“, der im Juni jeden Jahres stattfindet, Content erstellen.

Die Chief Brand Officer von Playboy, Rachel Webber, äußerte sich positiv über Krypto, als die Partnerschaft bekannt gegeben wurde: 

„Wir glauben von ganzem Herzen an die Zukunft einer Blockchain- und Krypto-betriebenen Kunstwelt, die den Schutz von Künstlern und Sammlern, eine kontinuierliche Kompensation der Künstler und die Demokratisierung des Vertriebs und des Sammelns gewährleisten kann.“

Aktien Preis geht durch die Decke

Der Aktienkurs des Unternehmens (PLBY Group) konnte im letzten Monat um 83 % zulegen. Insgesamt ist der Kurs seit dem Wiedereintritt in den öffentlichen Markt um 173 % gestiegen. Die Modernisierungsmaßnahmen und das geschickte Marketing des Playboys sind wahrscheinlich die Hauptgründe dafür.

Bitcoin correction looms as 4-hour death cross beckons

Avatar

Published

on

Bitcoin is on the brink of a macro reversal in terms of price action having slumped dramatically from its all-time high of $65,000 just one week after the Coinbase’s share went live on Nasdaq.

The world’s largest cryptocurrency is currently consolidating in the $55,000 region following a sharp rejection from the $57.2k level of resistance on Tuesday evening.

Whilst several analysts are predicting that this is the final pullback before another charge to a new all-time high, the four-hour exponential moving average formation demonstrates a severe lack of momentum.

The four-hour 50 EMA crossed the 200 EMA to the upside on October 9 when Bitcoin was worth $11,150 in what is called a “golden cross”. Since then, Bitcoin has embarked on a quite incredible bull market with a 480% rally to the upside.

During which the 50 EMA has failed to cross back below the 200 EMA as the uptrend continued to form new highs at $40,000, $58,500, $61,800 and more recently $65,000.

BTCUSD chart by TradingView

However, the 50 EMA is now aggressively angled to the downside, with it being just $600 away from the 200 EMA at $57,550. A cross will likely take place today unless Bitcoin can surge to above $57,500 before the next two candle closures.

Previous four-hour death crosses have led to a series of major corrections in the price of Bitcoin, with a cross in November 2019 preceding a 25% pullback while the subsequent cross in February 2020 came before a 63% correction.

It’s worth noting that the death cross is not confirmed until the 50 EMA has closed a four-hour candle below the 200 EMA, with a potential move expected to happen over the coming weeks.

New Discovery Conference Scheduled for SEC v. Ripple

Avatar

Published

on

One of the lawyers representing Ripple (XRP) in their ongoing lawsuit with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that a new discovery conference is to take place.

Defense attorney James K. Filan announced on Twitter that a telephone conference is scheduled for April 30. 

Reports indicate that the conference is about the SEC’s attempts to contact and acquire documents from Ripple’s foreign regulators. These are documents that the plaintiff could use against Ripple in their lawsuit.

In the last of the series of four Tweets, Filan states that the SEC is seeking discovery “outside the Rules of Federal Procedure and the Hague Convention.”

Filan, a former federal prosecutor, invited members of the public to listen in on the conference. He was quick to remind them, however, that recording and rebroadcasting the proceedings is strictly prohibited.

The latest developments

The conference follows a written request to U.S. Magistrate Sarah Netburn filed on April 16.

Ripple’s lawyers issued this request on behalf of Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, and executive chairman Chris Larsen. The letter asked the judge to stop the SEC from trying to acquire information about the defendants from their foreign regulators.

Furthermore, the letter also asserts that the SEC’s action is an intimidation tactic. One that the Ripple execs believe could affect their business relationship with the regulators. 

The lawsuit stems from the SEC’s assertion that, since 2013, Ripple Labs raised over $1 billion with the sale of XRP. The SEC alleges that the tech company violated the United States Securities Act of 1933 in doing so.

Earlier this month, the courts ruled in Ripple Labs’ favor in a dispute with British company Tetragon.

The suspected outcome

On Twitter, James Filan states it is likely that the court will support Ripple Labs. When asked for his opinion on the outcome of the conference, the lawyer shared a two-part tweet, which read:

“I think there is a decent chance the Court will order the @SEC_News  to stop using the MOU requests to get discovery and withdraw any that might be pending,” he writes.

“I also think the Court will order the @SEC_News to turn over to #Ripple everything it collected using […] the MOU process since the lawsuit was filed. Otherwise, the Court will be sending the message to the @SEC_News and everyone else that it’s okay to not follow the Court’s rules and that’s not something a court will normally do,” he concludes.
