Why there are still much fewer crypto card users than cryptocurrency holders, who need cryptocurrency cards, and what are their benefits, shared СEO of the virtual bank TTM Bank Vladislav Utushkin.


– The first crypto cards, analogs of bank cards that can be replenished with cryptocurrencies, appeared more than five years ago, but even among the crypto assets holders, not everyone can boast of having one. Why does the popularity of crypto cards lag behind the growth rate of the crypto market?

– Indeed, until recently, not every cryptocurrency holder had a crypto card. This is due to several constraining factors that have hindered and partly still hinder the development of this sphere. First, the card is primarily about everyday payments: stores, restaurants, or plane tickets. Most of these companies do not accept payments directly in cryptocurrencies. Not to mention Russia where it is illegal to accept payments in cryptocurrencies. Thus, to use crypto cards, there must be a working scheme with the instant conversion of cryptocurrencies into fiat money, what is called a payment gateway, passing through which the crypto turns into fiat with minimal losses on the exchange rate difference. Secondly, there is still no such crypto card that would be available for a resident of any jurisdiction. The American market has its own leaders, European and Asian markets are dominated by other players, while in the Russian market we are the only company that offers crypto cards. The reasons behind this are hard to explain. I assume that partly it is because of the lack of expertise among project founders on how to work under different jurisdictions and how to adapt to local regulations.

Thirdly, almost all crypto cards assume depositing funds from the wallet on the associated platform. Simply put, to charge up most of the crypto cards, it is necessary to first transfer coins to the virtual wallet on the corresponding platform and then to transfer funds to the card account. Moreover, at the moment of topping up the card, the cryptocurrencies are being converted to one of the fiat currencies. This means that a user agrees to store some funds in a third-party wallet. What if it gets hacked? And if the project turns out to be a scam? And a million “what ifs”. The key advantage of cryptocurrencies is that their holders have total control over their funds. But if a user agrees to transfer funds to the third party wallet, how is such a card different from any card issued by a traditional bank? This advantage vanishes while the holder has to perform more actions to get the card.

– What is the primary target audience for crypto cards?

– Mostly, these are people who receive a salary in cryptocurrencies, and the number of such people is growing every year due to its advantages in the field of international payments. Also, these are people who want to use cryptocurrencies not as an investment or a trading tool but as a payment method for their daily purchases. These are people who prefer to convert cryptocurrencies into fiat only in cases of absolute necessity or in certain situations.

– Would you say that the market of crypto cards has reached maturity and now has sustainable leaders?

– In my opinion, no. As I mentioned before, most of the projects with crypto cards have lots of restrictions, primarily geographical ones. For example, in the US the market leader might be BitPay, the European market was dominated by Wirex before the emergence of the problems with the payment system Wirecard. In the Russian market, TTM Bank is the market leader.

– So it seems there are already at least a dozen companies working with prepaid crypto cards on the market. How does TTM Bank distinguish from them? 

– First, сryptocurrencies credited to the TTM Bank card are instantly converted into fiat money. Other similar products have a time lag, and the user has to wait for the exchange operation to be completed. Secondly, TTM Bank cards are accepted anywhere in the world where VISA cards are accepted. We have almost no geographical restrictions. TTM Bank is the only cryptocurrency card that is available to citizens of Russia and the CIS. It is a convenient and reliable tool for daily purchases in both online and offline stores. This is a kind of link between the traditional financial system and the world of digital currencies.

– You said that when being credited crypto assets are instantly converted to fiat. So the funds on the card are not stored in cryptocurrencies?

– Now it is possible to top up the TTM Bank card with such currencies as BTC, ETH, TRX, and USDT. In the near future, we also plan to add two more cryptocurrencies: BNB and Bitcoin Cash. To replenish the card, users need to transfer the necessary sum from a personal wallet to the card account. I mean that users can deposit money from any personal wallet of their preference, there is no need to transfer funds to some imposed wallet on any other platform. When being credited, the cryptocurrencies are converted into euros. Thus, the volatility inherent in the digital market does not affect the currency stored on the card in any way. It is a very important aspect when it comes to everyday purchases.

– Is it possible to pay with a card for, say, utilities?

– Of course! It is possible to pay for any goods or services, including online purchases or booking a taxi.

– Is it possible to use the card for storing funds? How convenient is it? 

–  TTM Bank card was not designed for storing cryptocurrencies. It is not a storage facility. The card is intended for online and offline purchases. Your digital assets are stored in your wallet, and you have full control over them, and when you need to pay for goods or services, you can send the required amount of cryptocurrency to the TTM Bank card. Funds are credited to the card and converted into euros very quickly, just in a couple of minutes.

We have deliberately chosen such an approach. Any attempt to make a crypto card also storage space is a way to nowhere. We wanted to make a card that is convenient to use in everyday life and can be charged with cryptocurrencies. The market needs crypto cards for daily purchases, not yet another storage or wallet for bitcoins. At the same time, users do not need to transfer their coins for storage — they independently control their assets, thereby avoiding unnecessary risks. 

Imagine that you are sitting in a restaurant, get a bill, and want to pay with cryptocurrency. You just need to log in to your own (not our) wallet  — the one you are used to, the one where you usually store coins — and send the required amount of cryptocurrency to top up the TTM Bank card. The money is credited instantly, so the TTM Bank cardholder can easily pay the bill.

– How is the TTM Bank crypto card connected to the VISA payment system?

– We cooperate with the operator of the financial services, which is a member of the Visa payment network. Our partner UAB Walletto is a well-known company registered in Lithuania and has accounts in a licensed bank. Thanks to this partnership, the TTM Bank crypto card can be used almost all over the world, with the exception of countries such as Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Venezuela, the Gaza Strip, and some other regions.

– Are there any limits on deposits or transactions?

– Yes, and these limits are stipulated by the European legislation. The maximum card is 5,000 euros, the same limit applies to purchases per month through POS-terminals or online platforms. The ATM withdrawal monthly limit is 2,500 euros.

But users hardly notice these ‘restrictions’, since the TTM Bank card is designed for daily purchases, and their cost can rarely go beyond the established limits. Even very wealthy people do not so often visit restaurants where the bill exceeds several thousand euros.

For clients who exceed those limits, we recommend ordering several cards. TTM Bank allows our customers to issue up to five cards per user, thereby formally increasing the spending limit fivefold. You can differentiate these cards by type of spending: one for shops, one for online purchase, one for restaurants.

– How profitable is it to pay with such a card?

– If you get income in cryptocurrency, then it is more convenient for you to spend on digital coins. But there is a trick: now it appears that almost anyone can earn on cryptocurrencies but few people know how to spend what they earn in everyday life. And the TTM Bank card perfectly solves this problem, because with it you can easily go to the nearest supermarket for groceries. 

The TTM Bank POS transaction successful is 0.25 EUR per transaction. The Monthly Service charge per card is 2.00 EUR. The highest is the ATM disbursement: 2.50 EUR + 2.00%. But this is the standard fee for most virtual bank cards without their own ATM networks.

– The user base of TTM Bank at the end of 2020 exceeded 40,000 active users per day. How did you manage to increase the number of users so quickly?

– I believe that other projects helped us in this, or rather, their significant shortcomings. For example, some crypto cards are linked to a hot wallet, where digital assets are stored, which deprives cryptocurrency holders of control over their funds. Other companies are trying to impose internal tokens, attracting funding for this purpose through ICOs, and this method has not a very good reputation after the 2017 boom with plenty of scam projects. Some projects face a number of restrictions — they do not work in certain regions or with citizens of certain countries.

But even such professionals who are well versed in the field of cryptocurrencies need an easy-to-use, convenient and secure card that can be used to pay for goods and services around the world, book flights, and withdraw cash all around the world.

– The TTM Bank website states that the crypto card is reliable and secure. What does it mean exactly?

– First, a few months ago, we changed our jurisdiction from Hong Kong to the European Union. And this is not only a more convenient way for citizens of Russia and the CIS but also more secure, because Europe has already learned to deal with crypto assets ‘on friendly footing’ and has even developed a reliable data protection regulation (GDPR), which will help protect your funds from unnecessary risks. Thus, your balance is now under secure protection.

Secondly, we have developed a fully secure cryptocurrency wallet for our users, which is part of the TTM Bank infrastructure. That allows our customers to use private keys that are stored in the system and never leave it. Moreover, now all cryptocurrencies are stored in one place.

Finally, we have changed the card design making it more secure. Until recently, our customers could accidentally compromise their card number or personal data by posting it on their Instagram or other social networks. This problem was quite acute since it affected the interests of both the cardholders themselves and the company, but we have also solved it. The current design has become more concise and simple – We removed a logo and personal data from the front side of the card. Now our clients can easily share photos and videos featuring the card without any risks for safety.

Thus, thanks to the new concise design of the cards and the use of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), our users’ personal data is reliably protected from hacking or being compromised.

NextGen Blockchain Platforms Self-Organize to Win Government Contracts

Avatar

Published

on

Over the past year, blockchain development communities have turned their attention towards winning government contracts.

Washington, DC. There is a huge opportunity presented by increased government spending on blockchain projects. According to Bloomberg Government BGOV200 Report, federal government spending reached $597 Billion in 2019. However, since new businesses face barriers gaining direct access to government contracts, many have joined the Government Blockchain Association (GBA) to introduce their cutting-edge blockchain platforms to the public sector.

Traditionally government program managers choose to work with the same few legacy companies. For example, there are currently over 4.1 million US Federal government contractors but of the $597 billion in prime contracts awarded in FY19, the top 10 government contractors received $173.4 billion according to Bloomberg Government. However, the COVID-19 Global Pandemic was a catalyst that necessitated governments from around the world look at bold and innovative new ways to solve problems from a more diverse community.

In March of 2020 the US Department of Health and Human Services hosted a virtual Pandemic Response Hackathon. This hackathon idea completely changed the former process of government acquisitions. The slow pattern of the past was rewritten to adopt to the chaos, uncertainty, and urgency of COVID. Government contracts went from a centralized channel to open and decentralized solutions coming in from completely new sources. A new way of doing business was introduced to the world stage, and in November 2020 the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), National Informatics Centre (NIC) held their own up a GovTech Hackathon. Throughout 2020, countless examples of crowdsourcing solutions contested the traditional procurement processes.

Along with new paradigms in acquisitions, 2020 brought explosive growth of decentralized development communities and platforms. Decentralized communities operate on independently run servers, rather than on a centralized server owned by a business. Initially, most blockchain solutions were private-permissioned blockchains dominated by a single vendor. One of the most popular government blockchain solutions is Hyperledger Fabric. Though it is technically an open-source project, almost 80% of software changes to Hyperledger Fabric came from IBM, demonstrating an ongoing dependence on IBM to maintain the code.

Lately, next gen blockchain solution providers have been self-organizing into working groups and communities to compete in the contracts space. The largest and most engaged of these decentralized communities is the Government Blockchain Association, with members in over 500 Government Offices, thousands of public and private sector members in 120 Chapters, and more than 50 Working Groups, and 25 Communities of Interests. They also host regular online and in-person events to introduce blockchain solution providers to government officials, promoting this new diverse community.

Some of these next gen blockchain leaders include:

  • DragonChain – DragonChain is an enterprise and start-up-ready platform to build flexible and scalable blockchain applications. It has business-ready applications and developer-friendly integrations that support many applications including learning management systems, decentralized identity, and anti-fraud and compliance solutions.
  • NEM – A community that has developed two blockchains. They are NEM NIS1 and Symbol. NEM NIS1 is the original blockchain offering from NEM, created by the community, and optimized to be a developer’s sandbox. With zero downtime or major outages since 2015, NIS1 is the blockchain you can trust for all your project needs. Symbol is the next-generation enterprise-grade blockchain solution from NEM, purpose-built to help businesses cut costs, reduce complexities, and streamline innovation. With major upgrades in flexibility, security, speed and ease of use, the Symbol platform is the best-in-class blockchain enterprise solution.
  • Simba Chain – SIMBA Chain is a cloud-based, blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platform, enabling users across a variety of skill sets to implement decentralized applications (dapps). These apps allow secure, direct connections between users and providers, eliminating third parties. The easy-to-use platform is tailored for users, developers, government, and enterprises to quickly deploy blockchain dapps for iOS, Android, and the web.
  • TON Labs – TON Labs is the core developer of Free TON, comprised of a decentralized team focused on developing the infrastructure and free software for TON OS. TON OS is a full-fledged, vertically integrated technology stack that helps developers work easily with the blockchain and makes it simple and intuitive for users.

Decentralized blockchain projects include the Government Business Blockchain Platform (GBBP). This multi-blockchain platform allows solutions built on any blockchain to connect and become available to governments around the world. Sub-set eco-systems include Emergency Management, Healthcare Delivery, and Citizen Services. Blockchain applications can interconnect on the GBBP, providing identity management, logistics, asset management, payments, and many other blockchain services.

These examples demonstrate how blockchain providers are working together, self-organizing into decentralized entities to build public-facing blockchain solutions. GBA groups regularly host online meetings to discuss their projects. Anyone interested in joining the discussion can find out more on the GBA Events Calendar or Events List. Later this year the GBA will be bringing World-Class Leaders to Washington, DC for Government Blockchain Week on Sept 27 to Oct 1, 2021.

For more information attend a free online event called NextGen Blockchain Platforms on March 17, 2021 or send an email to support@GBAglobal.freshdesk.com.

London Stock Exchange-listed Bitcoin app, Mode, has announced the completion of an over-subscribed placing arranged by Peterhouse Capital Limited, raising a total of £6 million.

Mode plans to use the capital to expand its offerings to the Asian market while also adding to its Bitcoin holdings.

In October, Mode revealed that its strategy was to put 10% of its treasury holdings into Bitcoin, which at the time was around $1 million.

Jonathan Rowland, Executive Chairman, commented: “As with the Mode offering at the time of our IPO last October, this placing was significantly oversubscribed.

“We are especially gratified that we have now attracted, as a result of this placing, a range of new institutional shareholders. These additional funds will also provide the Company with strong cash reserves to push forward our stated near-term strategic objectives.”

The objectives include launching a payments solution powered by Open Banking, developing a loyalty and reward engine, integrating new payment capabilities and expanding the business to Asia.

“The Company has been extremely busy since our October IPO, but shareholders can expect with these additional funds that we will now accelerate these ambitious and exciting development plans. Mode is in the right place, at the right time, and shareholders can confidently now look forward to exciting news in the near future.” Rowland added.

PlasmaPay launches decentralised exchange ‘PlasmaSwap’

Digital payment platform PlasmaPay has announced the launch of its decentralised exchange, aptly named PlasmaSwap, according to a press release shared with Coin Rivet.

The new DEX provides secure and liquid trading with a user interface that is designed for professional traders.

PlasmaSwap aims to fill a gap in the institutional trading market, with a fully decentralised implementation of limit orders, as well as removing the reliance on centralised order books.

Limit orders smart contracts will be interacting with Ethereum 2.0, and traders will be able to trade on swap without an ETH balance.  

Ilia Maksimenka, CEO of PlasmaPay said: “Existing decentralised exchanges lack the streamlined user experience and intuitive ease of use of their centralised counterparts. They also tend to lack liquidity for most trading pairs.

“The launch of PlasmaSwap is an evolutionary leap towards making this exciting technology a reality for professional traders and institutions looking to enter the DeFi space.

“In this constant flux, where new and improved technologies are being introduced and accepted rapidly, the advancements brought by PlasmaSwap decentralised exchange will accelerate the process of unifying the old and new financial paradigm.”

The platform will also feature a Flash Rebalancer tool that will balance liquidity for one trading pair in one transaction, giving traders the opportunity to benefit from arbitrage.

Arguably the most unique feature of the upcoming DEX is the integration with a fiat on/off ramp that will allow users to efficiently get in and out of digital asset exposure.

Ultimate Guides To Buy Bitcoins

Avatar

Published

on

 

This guide explains how to buy Bitcoin from anywhere in the world and connect you to payment options. In this article, you will learn how to buy Bitcoins with a service that allows you to invest in Bitcoins with sterling.

There are several options to buy Bitcoins and dollars on exchanges, but if you want to buy Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies on the Exchange you choose, you have several platforms to choose from. You can also buy Bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies at any of your choice exchanges, such as Coinbase, Bitfinex, Mt. Gox and others.

Another way to buy Bitcoin and US dollars is to choose a platform that accepts bank transfers and deposits. By linking your bank account to your wallet, you can buy or sell Bitcoins and deposit money directly into your account. You can also use nairaex.com, a popular platform for buying Bitcoins by bank transfer and buying coins with a debit card or Paga.

You can also send Bitcoins to anyone who has Bitcoins in their wallet, receive Bitcoin money, and send them to other users. AbRA users can buy Bitcoins through the app, convert other assets into Bitcoins via Abras and then transfer them into an external Bitcoin wallet. You can use the AbaRra app to send Bitcoins to other Areas users and use it to buy Bitcoins, convert other assets into Bitcoins and convert them into AbrA ™ and then transfer them to external Bitcoin wallets.

If you want to buy Bitcoin in the US, you must first verify your identity on most exchanges. If you prefer to keep your Bitcoin transactions anonymous and not have the hassle of banking problems, or if you happen to live in another city, direct trading with a local seller would be an easy way to buy Bitcoins.

Most exchanges accept credit and debit cards, and these are generally the fastest way to buy Bitcoins. Once you have checked your ID, you can buy Bitcoins with a credit card or any other payment method.

Of course, buying bitcoins is fast and usually cheap, and you can buy them quickly and conveniently, but credit card providers earn money from currency spreads and fees. Bitcoins can be purchased with credit cards, debit cards or other payment methods as long as they are within the Bitcoin ecosystem, referring to the network of bitcoin exchanges, purses, exchanges and other exchanges worldwide.

That’s all you need to know about buying bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with your iPhone. The easiest way to buy Bitcoin on the iPhone using the Coinbase app (or cash app) is probably the easiest of them all. Just download the Coinbase app and you can start buying and trading bitcoin.

Buying Bitcoin directly from Coinbase is as easy as buying something from Amazon, but Coinbase makes it much easier and more convenient than Amazon. You can buy and sell Bitcoins directly on Coinbase, which makes it incredibly easy to use, and you can also buy Bitcoin daily, making Coinbase one of the most popular Bitcoin exchanges in the world.

For 1 euro, it is possible to buy a whole BTC, but you don’t need to buy it with a credit card. You can also buy Bitcoins from other Bitcoin owners, just like an item on Craigslist. Some ATMs allow you to buy only Bitcoins, while others allow you to sell your Bitcoins and get cash in return.

If the price of a Bitcoin is $20,000 and The Bitcoin buyer has only 10 dollars to send or invest, the user can buy 10 Bitcoins. This means you can buy an entire Bitcoin, not just a BTC or even a single Bitcoin. Once you have bitcoin, you could buy a tablet-like Nano that stores bitcoin offline, away from hackers.

If you want to buy Bitcoin, it is strongly recommended that the Bitcoins you buy are not stored in the Exchange once purchased, but in a wallet created by the buyer. When you buy Bitcoins on most exchanges, you have the option to transfer your coins into a Bitcoin wallet. Once you have your wallet, you can buy Bitcoins on the Bitcoin exchanges through a bitcoin exchange that you interact with, such as Coinbase or Bitfinex.

If you are serious about buying and using Bitcoin, you may want to get your own BTC wallet, which you control and sit offline on a USB stick. When you buy your first Bitcoins or any other cryptocurrency, you should consider moving your money to a more secure wallet that is only yours to control.

It’s a bit like Bitcoin, but you’re transferring your holdings digitally, not digitally. The process of buying Bitcoins through PayPal is the same as buying them with a credit card. You need a credit card or bank account to make the payment and you transfer money from your wallet to your PayPal account.

To Buy Bitcoins

This guide explains how to buy bitcoin and how to finally buy your first bitcoin or start investing today. We have gathered information from over 300 cryptocurrency exchanges worldwide and created a quick guide to help you choose the best cryptocurrency exchange and a list of the best places to buy Bitcoins.

The first step is to choose a wallet or exchange provider, so we’ve chosen a place where you can buy and store your Bitcoins. If you have a Bitcoin wallet, you must exchange your bank account details before you choose another exchange, and if you choose another exchange, your credit card information.

By linking your bank account to your wallet, you can buy or sell Bitcoins and deposit money directly into your account. Once you have linked your bank account to your wallet, you can sell or buy Bitcoins or deposit the money directly into your account and keep it in a safe place.

However, buying Bitcoins through PayPal also has a downside: you can’t send them to others or move them into your wallet.

After setting up your Bitcoin wallet, you can go directly to a machine that functions essentially like a normal ATM. This machine allows users to buy and sell Bitcoins anonymously, but the potential problem is that you have to find the machine that does what you want, and the machines that do it are rare.

Bitcoins can be exchanged for cash, withdrawn or used to buy and sell Bitcoins. None of the best-known bitcoin exchanges on the market is currently, so I went through the process of buying bitcoins from the majority of the other companies mentioned on this list.

If you prefer to keep your Bitcoin transactions anonymous and not deal with banking problems, or if you happen to live in another city, direct trading with a local seller would be the easiest way to buy Bitcoins. To buy Bitcoin with cash on LocalBitcoins, you must travel to the seller and send the money.

Another option is to buy Bitcoins directly from the seller, who is likely to pay much more commission than elsewhere. Some ATMs allow you to buy only Bitcoins, while others allow you to sell your Bitcoins and get cash in return.

More experienced investors should consider this option, as it involves buying Bitcoins directly from a dedicated cryptocurrency exchange. Bitcoins can be exchanged for another cryptocurrency, BTC, which is equivalent to buying BTC. If the Exchange does not allow you to purchase BTC by bank transfer or credit card, you can pay BTC into the Exchange.

If you’re interested in buying bitcoin just to understand how it works, check out Coinbase Pro. While Coinbase alone allows you to buy and sell Bitcoin, it is important to log in to Coinbase before linking to the exchange platform, which gives you greater control over your purchases. Use your Coinbase account without logging in first and use it to log in first.

The price of Bitcoin is constantly changing, so your goal should be to buy Bitcoin at the cheapest price. But if you want to use this, you first need to know how to buy bitcoin and what to do with it if you have it.

This last step is the easiest, as you can link your Bitcoin wallet to the Bitcoin exchange of your choice and decide how much Bitcoin you want to buy. Since this is your first Bitcoin purchase, choose an amount that will not affect you if it falls to zero.

When you decide where to buy your Bitcoin, you pay a conversion fee that you must consider all currency things. If you transfer your Gbp to a stock exchange that trades only in US dollars, you will be charged conversion fees.

It is quicker and usually cheaper to buy Bitcoin using a payment method such as a cash app or cell phone. P2P exchanges facilitate this type of transaction, as is the case with the private purchase of Bitcoin by another person (LocalBitcoins).

Anyone buying Bitcoins from a Bitcoin ATM or privately buying them remains anonymous. If you bought Bitcoin in cash, the Bitcoin ecosystem, known as the “Bitcoin ecosystem,” works much like the real world.

If you buy Bitcoin on an online exchange, you can purchase Bitcoin through a standard broker account. It is easy and safe to buy and trade bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies from the Exchange you choose and connect to payment options. If you bought Bitcoin in cash, it is easier and safer because you would buy Bitcoin with the credit card or bank transfer.

You can also buy or exchange Bitcoin (or other cryptocurrencies) from any exchange as long as you are connected to a payment option. Your choice of Exchange: Choose an exchange or connect to any payment option.
