The crypto friendly banks list

Some of us have first hand experienced who banks have shown their policies and views of this new age of digital currencies, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

With stories about banks denying business for crypto companies, or refusing new customers due to past crypto activities or just blocking purchases of cryptocurrencies online.

Are they scared? Are they trying to protect themselves? Are they trying to protect their customers? There is a lot to be asked and explore further. But what we can also do is to focus on the good examples.

And promote the crypto and Bitcoin friendly banks that are willing to go against the tide.

I know the saying goes in the crypto space that you are your own bank when it comes to dealing with cryptocurrencies. And that might be the case completely in a few years. But we can see that there a new digital banks that are pushing hard to let crypto and Bitcoin in.

We have many German and Europeans Bitcoin and cryptocurrency friendly banks on this list. And two U.S crypto friendly banks in Simple and USAA.

The 12 Bitcoin and crypto friendly banks of 2020

1 ) Revolut

Revolut a crypto friendly bank

Now this is not a traditional bank per se, but they do offer banking services and they are challenging the traditional school of banks around the world.

This fintech company (Revolut) was launched back in 2015, it has its headquarters in London, England. And they like others, Klarna, Monzo are doing their best to shake some life in this very traditional space. And how can you best do that?

Well for once offer really good products, such as help customers save on hefty fees, such as when spending or withdrawing money abroad, get a very useful app with full control of all your spendings, budgeting and payments, and onboarding new customers in only minutes.

Things that are all common sense and widely common in any industry beyond banking.

But obviously Revolut has also shown that they are supporting cryptocurrencies. Where its customers can buy, exchange and track their crypto portfolio in one easy to use app.

So check out Revolut and sign up to enjoy their benefits here

2 ) SEBA Bank

SEBA Bank a Swiss crypto friendly bank

This is a Swiss bank that was granted a banking license in August 2019 and launched their services officially in November 2019 (press release).

SEBA Bank (formerly SEBA Crypto AG) lets its customers invest in popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ether, Stellar, Litecoin and Ether Classic together with trading fiat money.

This Zug-based bank will let customers (both enterprises and retail investors) invest, manage and trade cryptocurrencies. And it makes sense that Swiss banks yet again show their affinity for leading the bank race.

And SEBA are showing themselves to be a crypto friendly bank that is not afraid of these new digital currencies.

3 ) Wirex

Wirex app screenshot from website

Spend your cryptocurrencies with Wirex VISA card

Now Wirex is not your traditional bank really. But they offer much of the services that you use your bank for. That is your daily shopping, monthly budgeting or investing (in cryptocurrencies).

And you can do all of this from one single mobile app.

The app is available for iOS and Android (sign up here to get started and download it).

So you still probably need a bank account to get your salary to, but after that, you can use Wirex if you prefer.

There are benefits to Wirex that most banks lack. It is very nice and easy to use the app. With perfect control of your spendings, your finance will get easier to manage.

But the biggest thing for why Wirex is so great is that you can spend your cryptocurrencies using Wirex at any shop that accepts VISA cards!

That means you can use your Bitcoin or Ether to buy coffee, clothes, cinema tickets and so on!

So on a list of the most crypto friendly banks, I think Wirex most definitely deserves to fill one of the spots. It’s not a traditional bank, but it has the features that you want from a modern one!

Get started using Wirex as your new modern bank

Manage everything from the Wirex app

4 ) Bitwala

Bitwala another German crypto friendly bank

Here comes another German bank showing the rest of the world why Germany will take a leading position in this digital and blockchain transformation.

Bitwala offers customers a full German bank account, as in getting your salary coming in here and transacting as with any other traditional bank.

But also, of course, some cryptocurrency integrations. Such as a built-in Bitcoin and Ether wallet, the option to spend cryptocurrencies at any physical or online shop (that accept Mastercard)

5 ) Fidor

This German bank aims to make it crystal clear that they are not afraid of cryptocurrencies. In fact, “Fidor speaks crypto and understands your business”.

This German bank has launched a Crypto-currency-as-a-Service offering to its customers (learn more here).

Where you can start trading, investing in cryptocurrencies, and also engage in ICOs.

Fidor is a German online bank that started in 2009 and you can get a feel that they are born digital, and modern in their approach.

Including offering cryptocurrency services, but also with fully integrated IoT integration, smart mobile applications for both private and business customers.

6 ) LHV

LHV and Estonian crypto friendly bank

Another country together with Germany that has shown to be leading the pack of crypto friendly countries, namely Estonia. And in Estonia, there is a bank that stands as a frontrunner, which is LHV.

LHV is, for example, serving Coinbase with banking services in the nearby region of baltic and Scandinavian countries (learn more about their relationship).

Additionally LHV has been one of the first banks that has its own in-house crypto teams, actively working on their current and future crypto offerings.

It is also one of the backers behind Cuber app, a digital payment app with full fiat and cryptocurrency support.

What not many people know is that LHV went so far, and early for crypto that they launched their own stable coin back in 2014 (learn more about it). Which was a digital form for the Euro that was used in their Cuber app (Medium article about it).

7 ) N26

N26 a new European digital bank

This is a German-based new digital bank, but it has a European banking license so open for all EU citizens. N26 is part of this new wave of digital banks that are focusing on delivering great user experience.

They know that customers aren’t loyal unless you can give them value for their money.

And for most that mean a great UX and experience when interacting with your bank, its app and anything else banking related.

Now N26 is not at this time have built-in support for buying and selling cryptocurrencies or have a cryptocurrency wallet, but there have been talks about the addition of just that in the near future.

And so far they have not at any point shown that they are blocking cryptocurrency purchases or in other ways stopping customers to deal with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

8 ) SYGNUM

SYGNUM the world's first digital asset bank

This is another Swiss bank with affiliations in Singapore that has realised that the future is not in blocking cryptocurrencies but in promoting it and making it easier for customers to buy, sell and manage their cryptocurrencies.

Exactly how their support for cryptocurrencies will be shaped is not 100% clear yet.

But we can read on their website that Sygnum will offer tokenisation solutions. So that securities can be tokenised and digitised.

This could be used for raising capital, but of course for managing these assets more easily in new digital ways.

9 ) ING

ING Dutch bank that are working on digital asset services

Now this is an older Dutch and multinational bank with offices around the world that by many reports are not shying away from crypto.

According to Reuters ING is deveöoping a way for their customers to safely store digital assets.

This service has not yet launched, but it shows that they are actively working on ways to help their crypto interested customers. And for ING to stay relevant.

ING “Sees increasing opportunities with regard to digital assets on both asset backed and native security tokens”

The bank said in a written statement to Reuters

And crypto is an area that they are actively exploring and trying to better understand – read past surveys on the area from ING here and find more examples of articles on crypto here.

10 ) Bankera

Bankera a blockchain-based ecosystem of financial products

Bankera is definitely a new type of bank, in fact it is a blockchain-based ecosystem of financial products. With blockchain-based loans that are crypto-backed.

Where you can use Bitcoin as collateral when you take out loans in fiat currencies.

Part of the Bankera network of financial products we can also find SpectroCoin. Which is a cryptocurrency exchange, tailored for instant-purchases, and they have also launched a crypto pre-paid VISA card.

And then they have another exchange which is slightly more traditional-looking for normal retailor crypto to crypto trading (Bankera exchange).

And at the heart of all this lies BNK – the Bankera token.

11 ) USAA

USAA a US crypto friendly bank

This American bank is one of the few that looks to be more positively aligned towards these new digital currencies (cryptocurrencies).

For example, they have been a backer of Coinbase for years, and also made it possible for their customers to integrate their USAA account with Coinbase via Coinbase Connect.

That makes it possible for USAA bank account holders to view their wallet balances at USAA also (learn more how it works here).

It might not look pretty, and they lack some of the now common features that are available on online banks seen on this list.

But with the other benefits that come with it, USAA is a traditional old school bank, and it is available for U.S customers. And it seems like one of the few U.S crypto friendly banks that we can find.

12 ) Ziglu

Upcoming bank from Starling co-founder Ziglu is the “cool home for your money”. And that money is not only traditional Fiat currencies, but also cryptocurrencies.

This is a new bank that has yet to been launched. It will by the launch of the report sometimes in 2020. And it is headed by Mark Hipperson a co-founder of Starling Bank, that left them in 2016 to move on to this new company, Ziglu.

In Ziglu you will be able to buy, sell and hold all types of currencies in one place. With easy to use features and UX this soon to be launched bank is expecting to make its launch sometimes in Q1 2020.

The not so crypto friendly banks

I wanted to highlight some of the known examples where banks have shown their true colours and opinions of what they think about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

1 ) Nordea forbids its employees to buy cryptocurrencies

Nordea bank offices

The Nordic bank Nordea found itself in the spotlight when it came out that they were forbidding all employees to invest in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies (Swedish article about it).

That meant that no one working for Nordea could spend their own private money on Bitcoin, or cryptocurrencies. This obviously grabbed the headlines as it was seen as a move that went beyond the bank’s supposedly control over its employees.

The CEO of Nordea bank Casper von Koskull expressed his views on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies to Bloomberg news and talked about ‘Bitcoin’s links to criminal activities’.

This ban on cryptocurrencies was later on appealed but the nordic bank actually, later on, won that appeal in a Danish court.

2 ) Wells Fargo bans cryptocurrency

Wells Fargo bans cryptocurrency purchases

This major US bank not only stopped credit card cryptocurrency payments but actually debit card payments. It is a big thing that a major bank in the US like Wells Fargo bans cryptocurrency investments.

That meant that the US bank stopped customers from buying legal cryptocurrencies with money they had (in most cases) earned in salaries.

This move became clear last year when many Wells Fargo customers noticed that their cryptocurrency purchases were not going through.

And after reaching out to Wells Fargo on Twitter a representative from the bank confirmed that Wells Fargo is not allowing transactions involving cryptocurrency (Yahoo article about it).

It is very clear that with this move that they are not favours of the rise of cryptocurrencies, and the potential threat it could have on the way they make money today.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Thanks for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, Wells Fargo does not allow transactions involving cryptocurrency. -Josh</p>— Ask Wells Fargo (@Ask_WellsFargo) <a href=”https://twitter.com/Ask_WellsFargo/status/1149728891059261441?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>July 12, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async src=”https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>

Referenzpreis der Coinbase Aktie laut Nasdaq bei 250 USD

Avatar

Published

on

Die Coinbase Aktie erhielt von den Verantwortlichen des Nasdaqs einen Referenzpreis von 250 US-Dollar. Die Aktie wird am 14. April 2021 auf der Börse gelistet.

Laut den Informationen der Nasdaq Exchange liegt der Referenzpreis der Coinbase Aktie bei 250 USD-Dollar. Nach wochenlanger Spekulation ist es nun endlich so weit. Die Aktie kann ab dem 14. April 2021 auf der Börse gehandelt werden.

„Morgen, am Tag der Börsennotierung von Coinbase, wird @pmarca mich, den Coinbase-Mitgründer @FEhrsam und den Coinbase President und COO @emiliemc auf Youtube Live interviewen. Welche Fragen soll uns @pmarca stellen. Danke!“

Coinbase geht an die Börse

Die direkte Börsennotierung der Exchange sorgte sowohl bei traditionellen Anlegern als auch in der Krypto-Community für viel Aufregung. Zuvor wurde lange Zeit über eine mögliche Börsennotierung spekuliert. So wie es aussieht, könnten bald auch viele andere Krypto-Unternehmen an die Börse gehen.

Der Referenzpreis wird vergeben, wenn eine Aktie zuvor auf keinem privaten Markt gehandelt wurde. Bei der letzten Investoren-Runde schätzen die Beteiligten den Wert des Unternehmens auf 90 Milliarden US-Dollar.

Die Krypto-Börse kam 2012 auf den Markt. Coinbase ist eine der ältesten Exchanges auf den Markt. Laut dem letzten SEC-Filling gibt es außerdem auf Coinbase mehr als 43 Millionen Nutzer. Im ersten Quartal 2021 waren die Unternehmensgewinne von Coinbase doppelt so hoch wie der Jahresgewinn von 2020.

Die Mitarbeiter erhalten Bonuszahlungen von Coinbase. Das irische Office gab seinem Team 105.510 Aktienoptionen. Insgesamt sind die Aktienoptionen zurzeit rund 45 Millionen USD-Dollar wert. Die Exchange zahlt diese über die Jahre an die Mitarbeiter in Abhängigkeit von ihrer Leistung aus. Die Aktienoptionen könnten durchaus neue Rekordwerte erreichen.

Analysten halten 100%ige Kurssteigerung für realistisch

Abgesehen von Coinbase wollten auch Gemini und eToro an die Börse gehen. Da der Bitcoin Kurs schon wieder ein neues Allzeithoch erreicht hat und die öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit auf die Krypto-Assets immer mehr ansteigt, könnten Börsennotierung für Krypto-Unternehmen zu einem entscheidenden Faktor werden.

Die Performance der COIN-Aktie wird sich möglicherweise indirekt auf andere Krypto-Unternehmen auswirken. Die Öffentlichkeit ist bestimmt auch gespannt, wie sich die Börsennotierung ein großes Krypto-Unternehmen wie Coinbase auf die traditionellen Finanzmärkte auswirkt. Manche Experten gehen davon aus, dass dich der Preis der COIN-Aktie in diesem Jahr verdoppeln könnte. Der D.A. Davidson Analyst Gil Luria glaubt beispielsweise, dass der Preis in diesem Jahr auf rund 440 US-Dollar ansteigen wird.

Bitcoin Preis erreicht neues Allzeithoch bei 64.800 USD

Avatar

Published

on

Am 13. April 20201 ist der Bitcoin Kurs über das vorletzte Allzeithoch ausgebrochen.

Heute, am 14. April 2021 ist der Bitcoin Preis auf ein neues Allzeithoch (64.854 USD) angestiegen.

Bitcoin Kurs Tageschartanalyse

Der Bitcoin Preis ist gestern nach längerer Zeit über das Widerstandslevel bei 61.500 USD angestiegen, das seit dem letzten Allzeithoch vom 13. März 2021 intakt war. Heute, am 14. April 2021, erreichte der Bitcoin Kurs ein neues Allzeithoch bei 64.854 USD.

Das nächste Widerstandslevel liegt wahrscheinlich bei dem externen 1.61-Fib-Retracement-Level des letzten Drops (68.724 USD). Die technischen Indikatoren liefern uns eindeutig bullische Signale. Der MACD steigt wieder an, nachdem er ein Plateau erreicht hat. Der RSI und der „Stochastic Oscillator“ steigen ebenfalls weiter an. Darum wird Bitcoin Kurs wohl bald das gerade erwähnte Widerstandslevel erreichen.

Bitcoin Preis kurzfristiger Ausblick

Auf dem 2-Stunden-Chart siehst du, dass der Bitcoin Kurs über eine ansteigende Trendlinie angestiegen ist. Danach erreichte er das letzte Allzeithoch.

Weder der MACD noch der RSI signalisieren, dass die letzte Aufwärtsbewegung bereits wirklich an Fahrt verloren hat. Der RSI befindet sich zwar seit kurzem im überbewerteten Bereich. Allerdings kann der Kurs eines Assets trotzdem noch eine Zeit lang weiter steigen, während er im überbewerteten Bereich bleibt. Darum wird der Bitcoin Preis wohl kurzfristig insgesamt weiter ansteigen, auch wenn wir kleine Korrekturbewegungen sehen könnten.

Der Bitcoin Preis wird wohl bald wieder auf die zuvor erwähnte Trendlinie fallen. Diese ehemalige Widerstandslinie fungiert jetzt wahrscheinlich als Support.

Bitcoin Kurs Wellenanalyse

Laut unserer Wellenanalyse befindet sich der Bitcoin Kurs gerade in der dritten kleineren Teilwelle (Schwarz) er letzten Teilelle eines bullischen Impulses. Der Hochpunkt der letzten beiden Teilwellen wird voraussichtlich zwischen 83.000 USD und 90.423 USD liegen. Sobald die letzte, Orange Teilwelle vorbei ist, werden wir wahrscheinlich eine Korrekturphase sehen.

Hier geht es zu unserer Langzeitwellenanalyse.

Fazit

Der Bitcoin Preis wird wohl kurzfristig zumindest auf das Widerstandslevel bei 68.724 USD ansteigen. Mittelfristig wird der Bitcoin Kurs höchstwahrscheinlich ein neues Hoch zwischen 83.000 USD und 90.000 USD erzielen.

Tech firm unveils Australian first initiative to help charities access blockchain funding

Avatar

Published

on

In an Australian first, social enterprise Little Phil is partnering with a cryptocurrency provider to provide local charities access to alternative and sustainable fundraising streams.

To deliver this groundbreaking initiative it is working with Netherlands-headquartered firm Legends of Crypto (LOC) – a non-fungible token trading card game – to implement a trial that will see 10% of all sales go towards directly funding selected causes on the Little Phil platform.

Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are a special class of digital assets that cannot be exchanged with one another for equal value, or broken down into smaller bits, that often operate as a type of collectors’ item and cannot be duplicated. These represent the next phase in the application of cryptocurrency technology with LOC itself receiving significant support from leading industry heavyweights such as the CEO of bitcoin.com.

This initiative is designed to provide not-for-profits access to alternative streams of fundraising outside of traditional avenues and aid them in diversifying their revenue raising activities.

According to Little Phil Co-founder and CEO, Josh Murchie this trial is designed to test the efficacy of alternative funding streams as it seeks to empower charities to diversify how they raise revenue for their causes.

“This is a really exciting trial for Little Phil and Legends of Crypto as we seek to test this groundbreaking fundraising trial,” said Mr Murchie.

“Although awareness among the public about crypto currency is generally around Bitcoin and maybe Ethereum, the reality is that this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the technology explosion in this space. What we are seeking to do here is to trial the efficacy of utilising NFT’s to create a recurring revenue stream for charities and see if we can free them up from continually asking for donors to donate.”

Founded in 2017, Little Phil is a total giving ecosystem that connects donors, businesses, and brands more directly with charities and beneficiaries through its Blockchain inspired Fintech technology platform that allows users to select a cause that they care about and directly give to that specific initiative – allowing them to track their impact in real-time.

Its technology provides donors full transparency around where their donations go, while providing charities the ability to showcase the difference every dollar makes as it provides not-for-profits the ability to give updates on the impact each gift has – ensuring transparent giving.

Some of its clients and partners include Greenpeace, mental health charity LIVIN, and the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary located on the Gold Coast.

That is why it is trialing the partnership within LOC’s marketplace that sees users buy and sell uniquely designed NFTs only available via its marketplace – as it adheres to this philosophy of directly allowing donors to connect via the causes they care about.

In this instance the 10 per cent of the funds raised will go directly towards cancer survivors requiring funding for their treatment.

For Josh Murchie, this initiative is all about ensuring that Little Phil is providing the charity sector access to funding and technology that might otherwise not be available to them.

“Last year we ran a national survey – the State of COVID report into Australia’s not-for-profit sector – that unearthed some of the biggest issues facing the industry as a result not just of the pandemic but broader micro and macro trends,” Mr Murchie said.

“One of the critical elements we unearthed from the data is that the sector is beset by two key issues, the giving behavior of Gen Z’s and millennials, along with digital transformation and technology usage. This trial, allows us to test the ability of charities to raise funds using the latest digital currency technology to hopefully better engage these demographic cohorts by creating greater connectivity with causes they care about using these new financial assets.”

COPA verklagt Craig Wright wegen Bitcoin-Copyright

Avatar

Published

on

Die gemeinnützige COPA-Organisation hat eine Klage gegen Craig Wright eingereicht und fordert von dem Gericht eine einstweilige Verfügung sowie eine Bestätigung, dass er keine Copyright-Ansprüche auf das Bitcoin-Whitepaper hat.

Die gemeinnützige Krypto-Organisation Cryptocurrency COPA (Cryptocurrency Open Patent Alliance) hat eine Klage gegen Craig Wright wegen seines Copyright-Anspruchs bzgl. des Bitcoin-Whitepapers eingereicht.

Die Organisation twitterte am 12. April 2021, dass sie ein Gerichtsverfahren bei dem britischen High Court of Justice einreichen wird, um „festzustellen, dass Mr. Craig Wright nicht das Bitcoin White Paper-Copyright besitzt“.

„Heute hat die COPA eine Klage eingeleitet, bei der der UK High Court aufgefordert wird, zu erklären, dass Mr. Craig Wright nicht das Urheberrecht am Bitcoin Whitepaper besitzt. Wir stehen auf der Seite der Bitcoin-Entwickler-Community und den vielen anderen, die bedroht wurden, weil sie das Whitepaper veröffentlicht haben.“

Die COPA fordert unter anderem, dass Wright nicht als Autor des Bitcoin White Papers anerkannt wird. Außerdem bittet sie um eine einstweilige Verfügung, die Wright davon abhält, zu behaupten, er sei der Autor des Whitepapers.

Wer ist die COPA?

Die COPA ist eine Non-Profit-Organisation, die laut eigene Angaben „versucht, Patente und Rechtsstreitigkeiten, die ein Hindernis für das Wachstum der Kryptowährungen sind, zu beseitigen“. Sie wurde von dem Unternehmen Square, das von Jack Dorsey gegründet wurde, ins Leben gerufen.

Die Organisation möchte den unethischen Missbrauch von Rechtswegen, mit dem teilweise Konkurrenten aus dem Weg geräumt werden sollen oder bei dem ausschließlich eigennützige Interessen vertreten werden, verhindern. In der Kryptobranche war dies leider schon öfters der Fall.

Wrights Anwälte behaupteten im Januar 2021, dass er einfach nur sein Copyright durchsetzen wolle. Außerdem schickten sie angeblich eine Nachricht an Square, in der sie erklärten, dass sie klagen würden, wenn Square das Whitepaper nicht von ihrer Seite entfernen würde. Wrights Anwälte bedrohten auch Bitcoin.org und Bitcoincore.org mit ähnlichen Nachrichten.

Ist Craig Wright Satoshi Nakamoto?

Wright ist derzeit in mehrere Rechtsstreitigkeiten verwickelt. Die meisten davon startete er selbst. Als Grundlage benutzte er seine Behauptung, dass er der Schöpfer von Bitcoin ist. In dem aufsehenerregendsten dieser Fälle wurde er aufgefordert, die Eigentumsrechte an den privaten Schlüsseln zu Satoshis Einlagen zu beweisen.

Viele Mitglieder der Krypto-Community zweifeln Wrights Behauptungen an. Die Klage der COPA Klage könnten dem Ganzen ein Ende bereiten.

Wird Wright irgendwann aufhören?

Wright behauptet schon seit langem, dass er der Schöpfer von Bitcoin ist. Er sagte sogar, dass er die private Keys zu Satoshis geheimen Bitcoin Wallets besitzt. Diese Behauptung handelte ihm allerdings einige Probleme ein.

Kurz nachdem er diese Behauptung als Grundlage für einen Rechtsstreit benutzt hat, wurde eine Text-Nachricht veröffentlicht, in der Wright als Betrüger bezeichnet wurde. Die Text-Nachricht wurde mit einer der Bitcoin Adressen signiert, die mit dem Rechtsstreit zu tun hatten.

Wright hat auch mehrere andere Ansprüche erhoben bzw. Rechtsverfahren eingeleitet und sogar eine Klage gegen Bitcoin-Entwickler eingereicht. Die Imageschäden, die Wraight wegen seiner dubiosen Rechtsstreitigkeiten erlitten hat, stärken nicht gerade seine Position vor den Gerichten. Trotzdem hält Wright an seiner Behauptung fest
