Kava Review: DeFi For Crypto & Cross Chain CDP Platform

Avatar

Published

on

Kava has been generating quite a bit of interest in the DeFi industry lately. There are many that think it could shake up the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem.

The project wants to create the world’s first dedicated DeFi platform offering colleteralized debt and stablecoins for all the major crypto assets. Built on tendermint core and powered by Cosmos, the project is also coming hot off a successful Binance IEO in 2019.

However, is it really all that it is being chalked up to be?

In this Kava review I will attempt to answer that by giving you everything you need to know. I will also look at the long term use cases and adoption potential of the Kava token.

What is Kava?

The Kava platform is being called “DeFi for Crypto” as it is designed to offer using collateralized loans based on a variety of different cryptocurrencies.

It’s a cross-chain platform that offers a service similar to that of Maker DAO, but where Maker supports ETH and eventually ERC-20, Kava is capable of providing collateralized debt positions on any cryptocurrency theoretically.

The platform has already garnered the support of many major players within the crypto ecosystem, including projects like Cosmos and Ripple, and hedge funds such as Arrington Capital.

To provide its service Kava uses both a stablecoin (USDX) backed by crypto-asset collateral and a staking token (KAVA) used for voting and governance.

Kava works using Interledger to integrate diverse blockchain networks, which allows new users to access this group of diverse networks. Through Kava, a wallet user is able to send payments cross-chain and to complete seamless asset swaps right within the wallet.

Moreover, exchanges can also use the Kava solution to allow users to retain control over their blockchain assets while transacting directly with the exchange’s order book.

It’s this application that Kava is best known for currently. Their cryptocurrency swap application called Switch allows for the nearly instantaneous swap of cryptocurrencies, even those based on different blockchains.

Kava is developing a stablecoin backed by Ripple, which will be used to power the collateralized debt positions (CDP) offered by Kava. Like Maker, the Kava platform will allow users to lock their cryptocurrencies into a CDP and receive USDX stablecoins in return.

Additionally, the Proof-of-Stake Kava blockchain has recently launched its mainnet. This blockchain is expected to include many different Cosmos based cryptocurrencies and is meant to improve the DeFi services available to users.

Kava is closely related to Cosmos since it is powered by the Tendermint consensus engine, the same as Cosmos.

Additional Crypto Support

The first hurdle being overcome by Kava is to extend the Cosmos DeFi to Ripple, but there has already been progress made towards supporting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

That progress is in the form of the Interledger based Switch application mentioned earlier, which allows users to seamlessly and nearly instantaneously swap cryptocurrencies from different blockchains.

Of course, Kava is recognizable in its similarity to MakerDAO, with its Dai stablecoin and the use of collateralized debt positions to provide stability, governance, and leverage from a number of collateral sources.

Benefits of Cosmos for Kava
Benefits of Cosmos for the Kava platform

Kava has been built on Cosmos as a Proof-of-Stake blockchain that allows users to stake tokens and participate as validators in the network, providing governance for the network. It adds the USDX stablecoin, which is issued by the CDP and can be backed by any number of digital assets.

The Kava project has previously stated that one of their major goals is to provide DeFi benefits to assets that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to access DeFi.

Kava intends on extending DeFi capabilities through decentralized leverage and hedging. In order to realize this vision, they use the USDX stablecoin as the store of value that can be backed by many different assets.

The multi-chain framework used by Kava gives users access to liquidity from a large number of backing assets. The Kava platform sports a user-friendly interface, which makes accessing DeFi for a number of different assets far more trivial. The only concern among users is that there may be some trade-offs in ease of use versus security.

As is true of most stablecoins, the success of Kava will in many ways be tied to its ability to maintain decentralization through a large array of validators, and its ability to attract enough liquidity to maintain the peg zone for USDX.

Kava has launched its mainnet and is expecting to launch the testnet for the CDP platform. They have already on-boarded over 100 validators for the network, which will help maintain the decentralization we referred to above.

CDP Platform Process

The primary product for Kava will be its CDP Platform, which is expected to launch on its testnet in the first quarter of 2020. This is where users will be able to collateralize crypto assets and receive USDX in return.

The CDP Platform works very similarly to MakerDAO but differs in that the Kava CDP Platform will allow users to collateralize many different assets, not just Ethereum.

How CDP Works at Kava
How the CDP Process Works at Kava

There are five steps in the CDP process, and a potential sixth step if the debt-to-collateral value drops below the specified threshold. These steps are as follows:

  1. The user deposits their cryptocurrency by sending it to the Kava Platform.
  2. The Kava Platform accepts the cryptocurrency and locks it in a smart contract as collateral.
  3. The smart contract issues the USDX stablecoin to the user as a loan based on the value of the deposited cryptocurrency.
  4. The user is able to repay the debt, plus a stability fee, at any time, unlocking their collateral and having it returned to them.
  5. When the collateral is returned the system automatically burns the USDX stablecoins.
  6. The sixth step is optional and only occurs if the debt-to-collateral ratio falls below a pre-set threshold. If this occurs the system will automatically liquidate the collateral to repay the loan.

Now that you have a good idea of how the Kava platform works, let’s take a look at the team behind the project.

The KAVA Team

The Kava team has been working on the platform since 2017, and while it has undergone changes in that time, some of the original members remain as leadership for the project.

The CEO of Kava, and one of its co-founders, is Brian Kerr. After graduating from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration he went on to found Fnatic Gear, the first company making Esports hardware and apparel designed by Esports players for Esports Fans.

In addition to his role at Kava, he is also an advisor for DMarket.io, a blockchain-based decentralized digital asset marketplace, and Snowball, the world’s first smart crypto investment automation platform.

The blockchain development lead, and a second co-founder of Kava, is Ruaridh O’Donnell. After receiving a Master’s Degree in Physics from the University of Glasgow in 2015 he spent time as an engineer and data analyst for Levelworks before helping to found Kava.

The team is quite open with their community so if you wanted to get more information about the project then you could always jump into the Kava Labs telegram group. If you wanted more general updates from the team then they also have an official Twitter.

The KAVA Token

The KAVA token is the native token behind the network. There will be a total supply of 100 million KAVA that will be minted with the genesis block. There are a two main use cases for the KAVA token and those are for governance and staking / validation.

In terms of governance, KAVA works about the same as the MKR token in the Maker Dao Ecosystem. KAVA holders can vote on proposals to change the blockchain or the system parameters. These include parameters such as the total amount of USDX, accepted collateral types, collateral to debt ratios etc.

Given that KAVA uses the tendermint consensus mechanism, it is a staking blockchain. This means that users can delegate their voting rights to validators who will secure the network. In exchange for this, they will earn fees from the transactions as well as stability fees paid by users when closing the CDPs.

The amount of staking returns that a user can earn will really depend on the amount of KAVA that has been staked. If the staked amount is low the APR for a KAVA validator will rise to a maximum of 20%. Conversely, if there are a lot of users who are staking then rewards will drop to a minimum of 3%.

Key point to note here as well is that those who are running the validator nodes may charge an additional commission for their services. So, this is an additional cost that you need to consider when looking around for a validator.

Perhaps your best bet for validating is using that staking pool setup by the Binance Exchange. Currently this pool is offering about 14% – 16% annual yield for those who are staking on it. Given that they are stored at Binance, it is generally more secure than most of the other alternatives.

Binance IEO & Token Trading

Most recently Kava conducted an Initial Exchange Offering on Binance, and it was fairly successful. Better than other recent Binance IEOs, but nowhere near the performance of the first Binance IEOs.

One possible reason for the early returns – KAVA coins were up 180% within days of release – was the wave of shilling on Twitter and other social media platforms. It was almost like warping back to 2017, with tons of anonymous users spreading hype and FOMO about the newest Binance IEO.

The IEO was held on October 23 and 24, and the pricing for KAVA tokens was $0.46. The project was able to sell 6.52 million KAVA tokens, raising $3 million. That’s just 6.52% of the total supply of 100 million KAVA.

The coin shot up following the IEO, giving the early investors a return of roughly 250% in just 24 hours. After immediately falling off those highs the coin spent the next three weeks trading higher in choppy trade, eventually reaching an all-time high of $1.29 on November 19, 2019.

After dropping back to $0.80 by December 10, 2019, the coin has since rallied again and as of December 30, 2019, it is trading back at $1.16, for a 250% return. While that might not be as good as the early IEOs hosted on Binance, it is better than the most recent token sales and is certainly nothing to complain about.

It is notable that the coin has not only held its value but also held early gains. That indicates the project is at least perceived to have real value.

KAVA Exchanges & Storage

When it comes to exchange listings, KAVA only really does any sizable volume on two exchanges. These are Binance and Bilaxy. On Binance you can trade it against Bitcoin, Binance Coin and USDT whereas on Bilaxy you can only trade it against Tether.

This is not really the best picture for general market liquidity. With 50% of the trading volume split evenly between these two exchanges it means that if ever token trading were to cease on one, KAVA liquidity could collapse.

Binanace KAVA

It also makes it harder for general price discovery to take its course. With less exchanges to arbitrage out mispricings, it means that the price of KAVA could deviate from a “true” value with relative ease.

When it comes to wallet support, the Kava team is working on a Trust Wallet integration which is not released yet. However, given that KAVA is built on Cosmos, you can use most of the wallets that support ATOM.

These include the likes of Lunie and Cosmostation with both allowing you to delegate your KAVA and earn the staking returns. We have actually completed a list of the best Cosmos ATOM wallets which you can also take a peak into.

Development & Roadmap

One of the best ways to determine the development progress of a project is to look into their open source repositories. By observing coding activity, you can get a nice benchmark.

Hence, I decided to dig into the Kava Labs GitHub and observe their total activity. Below are the total commits to the top 3 most active repos over the past 12 months.

KAVA Labs GitHub
Total Commits to Select Repos over past Year

As you can see there has been quite a bit of development although this has been on the rather light side. This is also surprising for a project that has just launched their mainnet.

Perhaps there is still some work that is taking place in private repositories that is yet to be pushed. Indeed, this blog post seems to list a number of important development milestones that have been reached.

When it comes to the roadmap, the next most important thing to look forward to is the launch of the CDP Testnet in the first few weeks of January. For the rest of the year, these are what is planned:

  • Q2: Cross-chain assets in CDP system on mainnet
  • Q2: Integrate custodial BTC Peg into CDP system testnet
  • Q3: Integrate both custodial and non-custodial BTC Peg into CDP system mainnet

It will be interesting to see if they can meet these milestones. All eyes will be on the CDP testnet in the beginning of the year. If you want to keep up to date with the developments then you can follow their official blog.

Conclusion

Kava is an interesting DeFi project, but I’m not certain we need another project similar to MakerDAO. On the other hand, it is good to have access to a collateralized debt position platform that will be able to utilize any crypto asset.

During my research for this piece, it did seem to me that details regarding the project, its founders, and its advisors, was scant at best. The website has little information and the white paper is little better. The project claims to have been in existence since 2017, but there is almost nothing on them prior to the announcement of the Binance IEO.

On a positive note for investors in the KAVA coin, the return has been good until now, and the coin is holding its value.

Until the launch of the CDP Platform in the first quarter of 2020 I will remain somewhat skeptical of the project. Even after that, I would really like to get my hands on more details regarding the project and the team behind the project. Until then there are just too many blank spaces for my liking.

Ethereum in Blockchain Software Development

Avatar

Published

on

In the connected digital era, technology is expanding in leaps and bound leaving no space for businesses to cope up. Every day there is an advancement in technology that makes businesses amazed at how easy it would be for their business to adopt that technology. The most common buzzwords of the Information technology sector are the Internet of Things, Automation, Blockchain Machine learning, and other significant technology trends. Specifically, if we talk about Blockchain, then blockchain has been imprinting a higher success ratio in almost all the industry domains. Multiple businesses want to leverage blockchain as a service but aren’t sure about its operations and functioning. So, with the same thought let’s get deeper into the fundamentals of blockchain, ethereum development, building apps on ethereum, blockchain software development, and apps developed around blockchain services. 

 

To start with, what is blockchain as technology or blockchain as a service?

 

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain is an overarching technology that is a hallmark of security and trust that has revolutionized the way information can be exchanged on the internet. Blockchain also assures that the data stored in the blocks as a transaction ledger cannot be tampered with or deleted by anyone. 

 

In comparison to a conventional centralized network, blockchain is a decentralized network that comes with many advantages, including improved system stability and privacy. Furthermore, such networks are much easier to scale and have no single point of failure. This connected decentralized nature of Blockchain is due to mutual networking and distributed computing.

 

It is an emerging technology that has enticed multiple users to securely access data in a flexible manner that mitigates risks of data breach and confidentiality of information. The name of blockchain is easily decodable like it means blocks formed in a chain. These blocks are chained together and were thus introduced with the initiation of Bitcoin in the year 2008. And probably that’s the reason why most of the businesses misinterpret Blockchain with bitcoin, ethereum cryptocurrency, and other similar terms. 

 

To understand the concept in detail, we will be unraveling all these terms that create ambiguity and restrict users from using Blockchain. Here is the simplest meaning of all the terms

 

Bitcoin

A decentralized blockchain dedicated to the exchange of tokens between accounts. Bitcoin is authentically built using the blockchain cryptocurrency concept.

 

Cryptocurrency

 

Cryptocurrency is a method where cryptography is used to create evidence of ownership for digitally transmitted and traded currencies all across the globe.

 

Ethereum 

Ethereum is an advanced version of Blockchain that is also decentralized. Ethereum now uses a Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus algorithm, but future protocol updates will most likely move to a more scalable algorithm based on Proof-of-Stake (PoS).

 

Blockchain

The data in a blockchain is stored in discrete parts (blocks) that are connected in this system. Invalid data is rejected by blockchains, which specify parameters for what data should be stored in a block and which should not.

How are Ethereum and blockchain interlinked?

To understand the interconnection between ethereum and blockchain, we need to understand what exactly ethereum is. Ethereum has a strong association with smart contracts. Smart contracts are another important term used in this process and often create confusion with blockchain. 

Smart contracts are legal contracts that are created between two parties and with a blockchain element that makes the method secure and strong. In some smart contracts,ethereum are inserted and those contracts can be specifically identified. Developing with Ethereum allows open-source networking and hence the overall process becomes transparent yet secure. The coding in smart contracts is done based on If, Then, or Else conditions. As per the satisfying predefined conditions, the contract gets automatically executed. These are non-decodable and tamper-proof.

 

Now, what is Ethereum in Smart contracts? 

As we know that ethereum is a cryptographic asset that has a definite address that redirects as per the predefined conditions. Ethereum is an advanced-level blockchain that stores the information of smart contracts in a decentralized blockchain network.

 

The blockchain developers using Ethereum are well-skilled with two major types of languages- Solidity and Vyper language. 

Ethereum as a software development tool

Ethereum is a shared distributed network of nodes that handle transactions and add them to an increasing database known as the blockchain. Since it is an open-source network, anybody can have access to it. Smart contracts are applications that can be written by developers and hosted on the Ethereum network. Anyone with Ethereum access will perform write and read operations on the blockchain. In this way, you can easily create blockchain software development of applications.

 

Ethereum in software development using multiple languages that work in software development using ethereum. When you decide to develop an app using ethereum, you need some access points in the blockchain, and other than that some knowledge of some programming languages such as Solidity, web3.js,infura.io ethereum networks, and more. 

 

It would just take a few minutes to set up your Ethereum development setup or environment. Before we start writing code, we need to have a clear understanding of a few general principles that contribute heavily to the development process using ethereum. 

 

Web3.js 

It is a JavaScript library for developers to write codes for web browsers in an ethereum blockchain. 

Infura.io 

It is a company offering different types of API for simple ethereum networks with the help of HTTP and WebSockets. You can host your ethereum network using Infuras API.

Cloudflare’s Ethereum Gateway 

Cloudflare, a well-known DNS and web-infrastructure provider, offers a free Ethereum Main Net API. Cloudflare’s portal, unlike Infura’s, does not require an account or an API to use.

Ganache CLI 

It is a command-line GUI for running an Ethereum instance locally. On your local computer, we can build a blank Ethereum blockchain or a fork of a public network’s blockchain. Truffle

Truffle

Truffle, Ganache, and Drizzle are examples of Ethereum creation tools created by this company- Truffle. We can successfully install Ganache CLI so we can run our Solidity and Web3.js code locally during production.

Solc

It is a compiler for Solidity. It can convert  Ethereum bytecode into human-readable Solidity code. 

MetaMask 

It’s a tool that allows end-users to use ETH, Ethereum-based cryptocurrency tokens, and monitor their Ethereum wallets by using decentralized Web3 apps (a.k.a. DApps). A web browser plugin that allows you to call Ethereum smart contracts directly from a webpage.

 

Pros and Cons of Ethereum 

Numerous benefits are offered by ethereum and with the demonstrated results in the market, every business is keen to adopt that. Here are some of the benefits that ethereum offers in terms of using it in any type of software development process. These are special characteristics of ethereum plus are perks of using it too. Here is a list of five advantages of using ethereum in the development

Immutable

Ethereum is blockchain comes with sure-shot surety of no tampering or changing of data. Even if you don’t lock your database with a passcode, it will still be protected under the blockchain. There is no way to change or amend data in Blockchain; the data stored there is permanent; it cannot be deleted or undone.

Decentralized

It is not a centralized system and hence it doesn’t work like one. The primary aspect of blockchain is decentralization which offers simpler usage, transparency, and interconnectivity. This indicates how each block is closely linked but non-decodable. 

 

Transparent

Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that takes up total accountability. Organizations and businesses may use blockchain technologies to create a completely decentralized network that eliminates the need for a centralized entity, increasing the system’s visibility.

Highly Secure

One of the major benefits of ethereum is security. The initiation of blockchain as a service promises the most secure network without any tampering or deletion of data. Also, the transaction made by the blocks stores encrypted data that is not hackable. 

Traceable

This is one of the simplest reasons why businesses choose to take up blockchain because it can easily show desired search results even with millions of records stored in the blockchain.

 

Cons

Flexibility is an important factor to consider.

 

Though Ethereum offers strong decentralized encryption, the network does not scale well enough to meet the demands of an ever-growing user base.

Lack of understanding

Like we started blockchain is a buzzword and most of the business wants to leverage the benefits of blockchain but are unable to do so because of lack of knowledge and implementation skills.

Final Thoughts

Blockchain Software development of Blockchain as technology serves as a driver for profitability for all types of businesses with its fundamentals and demonstrated expertise in authenticity, security, and legitimacy. This open public ledger fills in all the holes, allowing businesses to monitor microtransactions with pace and agility. Ethereum is one of the largest blockchain development networks that has given a boost to business streamlining with protection to their essential data, information, and apps. It has been a flag-bearer of change for many businesses, it’s the turn of your business now to look for change.

Der Bitcoin Kurs hat am 14. April 2021 ein neues Allzeithoch bei 64.854 USD erreicht. Kurze Zeit später fiel er ziemlich schnell.

Nachdem Drop validierte der Bitcoin Preis das ehemalige Widerstandslevel bei 61.500 USD als Support. Seitdem steigt er wieder allmählich an.

Bitcoin Preis Tageschartanalyse 

Am 13. April 2021 ist über Bitcoin Kurs über das Widerstandslevel bei 61.500 US-Dollar ausgebrochen. Am 14. April 2021 erreichte der Bitcoin Kurs das letzte Allzeithoch bei 64.854 USD.

Allerdings fiel er noch am selben Tag auf das letzte Low bei 61.301 USD. Danach ist der Bitcoin Kurs wieder nach und nach gestiegen. Der Bitcoin Kurs konnte also den Widerstandsbereich bei 61.500 USD erfolgreich als Support validieren.

Die technischen Indikatoren liefern uns überwiegend bullische Signale. Sowohl der RSI als auch der „Stochastic Oscillator“ steigen weiter an. Außerdem befindet sich der MACD wieder fast im positiven Bereich. Der Bitcoin Preis wird also wohl erstmal weiter ansteigen. Das nächste Widerstandslevel liegt bei 68.724 USD.

Bitcoin Kurs Wellenanalyse

Laut unserer Wellenanalyse befindet sich der Bitcoin Kurs gerade in der fünften und letzten Teilwelle (Orange) eines bullischen Impulses, der im März 2020 begonnen hat. Der Hochpunkt der letzten Teilwelle liegt wahrscheinlich zwischen 83.000 USD und 90.500 USD. Wir erhalten das Preisziel, indem man ein externes Fib-Retracementt auf den Tiefpunkt der vierten Welle einzeichnet bzw. eine Fib-Projektion auf die ersten drei Teilwellen anwendet.

Die Teilwellenzählung der orangen Teilwellen ist in Schwarz eingezeichnet. Die noch kleinere Teilwellenzählung der zweiten schwarzen Welle in Rot. Sobald die fünfte Orange Welle abgeschlossen ist, werden wir voraussichtlich erstmal eine Korrekturphase sehen.

Ethereum Berlin Upgrade: Fix für die Gas-Gebühren?

Avatar

Published

on

Das Ethereum Berlin Upgrade ist das erste Upgrade seit Istanbul vor 15 Monaten. Ethereums Berlin Upgrade fällt mit einem neuen Allzeithoch ETH Preis bei etwa 2.326 US-Dollar zusammen.

Ethereum Preis: Ein Bild von CoinMarketCap
Ethereum Preis: Ein Bild von CoinMarketCap

„Nach Monaten der Planung ist Berlin endlich da! Das Upgrade, das auf die Upgrades für Istanbul und den Muir-Glacier folgt, soll im Ethereum-Mainnet in Block 12 244 000 live gehen. Wir gehen davon aus, dass dies um Mittwoch, den 14. April 2021, geschehen wird, jedoch aufgrund der Variabilität der Blockzeit, kann sich das genaue Datum noch ändern.“

So lautet die Einleitung zum Berlin Upgrade auf dem Ethereum Blog.

Während die Ethereum Blockchain viele neue Anwendungsbereiche eroberte (DeFi, dann NFTs), wurden auch die Schwachstellen der Ethereum Technologie immer deutlicher spürbar: Die Gebühren schossen in rekordverdächtige Höhen und die Transaktionszeiten stellten so manchen Nutzer auf die Geduldsprobe. Nun kommt das Ethereum Berlin Upgrade genau richtig, um die Technologie an die wachsenden Anforderungen anzupassen. Für die Nutzer soll das Upgrade aber zunächst keine spürbaren Hürden mit sich bringen:

„Wenn Sie einen Exchange (wie Coinbase, Kraken oder Binance), einen Web Wallet-Dienst (wie Metamask, MyCrypto oder MyEtherWallet), einen Mobile Wallet-Dienst (wie Coinbase Wallet, Status.im oder Trust Wallet) verwenden, oder eine Hardware-Wallet (wie Ledger, Trezor oder KeepKey) müssen Sie nichts tun, es sei denn, Sie werden von Ihrerm Exchange- oder Wallet-Service über zusätzliche Schritte informiert.“

Ethereums Killer Nummer 1: Transaktionsgebühren

Ende Februar 2021 erreichten die Transaktionsgebühren bei Ethereum einen Durchschnittswert von fast 40 US-Dollar. Somit war der Transfer von kleineren Mengen ETH kaum sinnvoll. Langfristig hätten diese hohen Transaktionsgebühren die Adaption der Plattform einschränken können. Schließlich muss eine Plattform attraktive Nutzungsattribute für die Anwender mitbringen.

Das Ethereum Berlin Upgrade soll dieses Problem nun lösen, damit Ethereum gegenüber aufstrebenden Plattformen wie Cardano wettbewerbsfähig bleibt. Einige der Protokolle des Upgrades:

  • EIP-2565 = Reduktion der Kosten für die ModExp-Vorkompilierung. Dies hilft bei der Berechnung der Gaspreise.
  • EIP-2929 = Erhöht bestimmte Gaskosten, wenn sie zum ersten Mal in einer Transaktion verwendet werden.
  • EIP-2718 = Führt ein neues Transaktionsmodul ein, das mehrere Transaktionen unterstützt.
  • EIP-2930 = Transaktionsart mit optionalen Zugriffslisten. Diese besondere EIP wird dazu beitragen, einige der neu auferlegten Gaspreise aus EIP-2929 zu senken.

Das Berliner Upgrade ist ein Schritt in Richtung der Ethereum 2.0-Metamorphose der Ethereum Foundation. Die neue Hauptkomponente ist eine vollständige Änderung der Art und Weise, wie das Netzwerk Transaktionsgebühren verarbeitet. Allerdings sind nicht alle Ethereum Miner zwangsläufig begeistert von dieser Entwicklung. Denn die Gebühren gehen dann nicht mehr an die Miner, sondern werden verbrannt. Fraglich ist, ob das Mining so langfristig für die Community attraktiv bleibt.

Binance wird Coinbase Aktie anbieten

Avatar

Published

Die Kryptowährungs-Exchange Binance kündigte an, dass sie eine tokenisierte Version der Coinbase Aktie rausbringt. Die Coinbase Aktie ist die zweite tokenisierte Aktie, die Binance anbietet.

Vor kurzem kündigte die Exchange Binance an, dass sie digitale Anteile der Coinbase Aktie anbieten wird, nachdem diese auf dem Nadaq gelistet worden ist. Seit der Börseneröffnung vom 14. April 2021 kann man die COIN-Aktie offiziell kaufen. Seit kurzem kann man außerdem eine tokenisierte Version der Tesla-Aktie auf Binance handeln.

Binance Stock Token

Binance lancierte diese Woche die erste tokenisierte Aktien. Die Nutzer müssen keine Kommission für den Handel mit dem Token zahlen. Jeder Aktien-Token entspricht einem Unternehmensanteil. Jeder Token ist außerdem 1:1 mit einer Aktie hinterlegt. Die Aktien werden in einem speziell dafür angelegten „Depository-Portfolio“ hinterlegt. Binance arbeitet mit der Investmentfirma CM-Equity AG und der Asset-Tokenization-Plattform Digital Assets AG zusammen, um die neuen Aktien-Token anbieten zu können.

Die Mindestpositionsgröße beträgt ein Hundertstel des Wertes des Aktien-Tokens. Die Kunden müssen zudem den Stablecoin BUSD (Binance USD) verwenden, um mit den Token handeln zu können.

Seit dem 12. April 2021 kann man die tokenisierten Tesla-Aktien auf Binance handeln. Tesla ist bei vielen Krypto-Tradern sehr beleibt.

Coinbase Aktie

Coinbase wurde heute auf der NASDAQ-Börse gelistet. Die Exchange Coinbase kündigte ihren Börsengang bereits im Dezember 2020 an. Coinbase beantragte dann im Februar 2021 eine öffentliche Notierung bei der US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Kurz darauf wurde der vorläufige Preis der Coinbase-Aktien bei einem privaten Verkauf auf 350 US-Dollar pro Stück festgelegt. Die Gesamtbewertung des Unternehmens lag damals bei 90 Milliarden US-Dollar.

Nach einer leichten Abänderung des Antrags genehmigte die SEC den Antrag von Coinbase. Coinbase ist die erste Krypto-Exchange, die an die Börse gegangen ist. Viele Investoren betrachten diesen Schritt als einen Meilenstein für die Krypto-Branche. Viele Experten rechnen allerdings mit einer äußert hohe Volatilität der COIN-AKTIE. Wir werden sehen, wie sich der Preis der COIN Aktie in den kommenden Tagen entwickelt. Zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung ist der Kurs der COIN-Aktie auf über 400 US-Dollar angestiegen.
