Looking at the performance of cryptocurrencies you can find that among major cryptocurrencies Bitcoin is unique in volume and incremental ratio, soared more than 300% annually, generate significant attention throughout 2020, and rushing like a roller-coaster market.

There are other cryptocurrencies that are favorite among many users, but Bitcoin become the de facto standard among mainstream institutions, they’re gradually injecting funds into Bitcoin and redraw the status of Bitcoin as Digital Gold. The massive inflow of funds from institutions is the recognition of encrypted assets value that reached every corner of this world. The total market value of Apple is approx US$2.26 trillion while encrypted assets value reached US$2.08 trillion

The volume of many cryptocurrencies almost exceeded the stock markets of digital and industrialized countries, and become lucrative investment assets, and in countries like South Korea, the single-day trading volume of crypto assets is more than 25 billion dollars which is far exceeding its own stock market net trading volume in a single day.

If this phenomenon continues without any interruption then the analyst believes that this will lead to grab people’s attention from Gold and other assets and fund that flowed regularly into other assets lend into the cryptocurrencies world because of the attractiveness of cryptocurrencies and the presentation of these encrypted assets as a safe heaven

The average return rate of cryptocurrencies is more than traditional assets, previously if you invested in Gold and other metal assets your return ratio was 98%, but investment in encrypted assets would return higher than 2000% which you can find by checking the historical prices of the crypto assets like bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dodge coin

Store the Value

If you closely watch the situation and seeking some deeper insight you probably found that the inflow of the fund is not for short term advantage, the injected funds into cryptocurrencies were to save the existing values of the funds, instead of choosing the Gold standard investors willing to lend their funds into cryptocurrencies and especially in Bitcoin.

The main concern is to put funds where there is no inflation and increased over time, Bitcoin posses both properties as an anti-inflation asset and always increasing moreover when investors want to liquidate the funds they always get the original value of their funds.

Ethereum, Defi and NFT

The second-largest cryptocurrency in the crypto world is Ethereum, but it is not like Bitcoin blockchain, vividly it is an ecology that gives birth to ecosystems of Defi and NFT, added another layer of infrastructure into the encrypted assets, transforming the existing financial infrastructure into Ethereum based infrastructure, on daily basis the number of transactions growing and reaching new highs, the ETH get strengthened because of Ethereum ecosystem, attract new investment and influence many other market players.

Platform Currencies

Binance and Coinbase and their coins BNB and USDC respectively show increasing transaction volume and people interest, according to CoinGecko data both coins show signs of better performance, and now people recognized the new pattern of platform crypto assets, last year Coinbase profit is 320 million while Binance is more than 800 million.

Coinbase and Binance coins give a new direction to the encrypted world and grabbed a large volume of crypto investment, BNB which is now the third-highest token in the crypto world if comparing with Bitcoin you can find that after so much the soaring price of Bitcoin the market share is not increased but fall however Bitcoin dominated the cryptocurrencies.

Happy birthday Ethereum!

Published

on

Today marks the sixth birthday of the Ethereum network and Ether – the world’s second-largest digital asset.

Ethereum was created by the crypto innovator Vitalik Buterin when the project was officially proposed in a white paper in late 2013.

The following January, a 20-year-old Buterin, headed down to the annual North American Bitcoin conference in Miami, Florida, clutching that white paper.

It’s there he met his Ethereum co-founders – a group of Canadian crypto evangelists who immediately saw the huge potential of Buterin’s idea.

Crammed into a little beach house, they invited Buterin to stay and turn his vision into reality.

Within six months, Vitalik had dropped out of the computer science program at the University of Waterloo, and moved out to Zug, Switzerland (now known as crypto valley) along with the rest of the group-turned-team.

The founding members of the Ethereum network included Gavin Wood (Solidity smart contract language creator), Anthony di Lorio (DeCentral founder), Joseph Lubin (ConsenSys founder), and Charles Hoskinson (Cardano founder).

After the completion of an $18m funding round in 2014, development begun and Ethereum slowly materialised as a viable decentralised network.

However, tensions between members set in and the team begun to unravel.

Charles Hoskinson was the first to go, many others would follow.

Today, only Buterin still works on the project.

After a period of successful testing on July 30, 2015 – the first block of Ethereum was mined and the Ethereum mainnet was launched.

The network has rapidly grown to become one of the most prominent components of DeFi and the crypto industry at large. However, a victim of its own success, gas and transaction fees have begun to slow.

This is why Ethereum is now preparing for an imminent scalability update to Ethereum 2.0.

Watch this space.

Binance to halt derivatives and futures trading in Europe

Published

on

Binance has officially halted futures and derivatives products offerings across the European region, commencing with Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. 

The leading cryptocurrency exchange continues to limit products to users amid the ongoing challenges it faces from global regulators.

The move means users from these countries will not be able to open new futures or derivatives products accounts “with immediate effect”. 

Binance confirmed that if existing users have any open positions in these markets, they are advised to close them, noting that a further announcement would be made at a later date to confirm a 90-day period in which to close open positions.

Binance clarified the importance of European markets to their offerings and invited regulators to open a dialogue to discuss the requirements necessary at local levels. The discussion marks Binance’s continued efforts to collaborate with local and national regulators on the necessary requirements to operate in these areas.

“The European region is a very important market for Binance, and it is taking proactive steps towards harmonising crypto regulations, which is a positive sign for the industry,” wrote Binance in a tweet.

Binance also said it does “not actively market Futures and Derivatives Products locally” and that they plan to start “further scaling down” access to these products within Europe. 

The announcement follows Binance’s recent removal of high leverage trading products from its product offerings and a seemingly relentless wave of scrutiny and oversight from global regulators. 

Despite recent efforts to appease regulators by CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ), Binance has been forced to delist certain margin trading pairs and cease trading and support for stock tokens like Tesla and Coinbase. Binance is also preparing to cut daily withdrawal limits from two Bitcoin (BTC) to 0.06 BTC in August.

Additionally, leading banking institutions and payment processors in the UK have started to limit transfers to and from Binance, citing “excessively high fraud rates” as a key reason for the decision. 

Binance has also been banned in Malaysia and given 14 days notice to shut down its operations. According to an announcement released today, the Securities Commission of Malaysia has issued public enforcement actions against Binance for “Illegally Operating in Malaysia.”

Binance has been given 14 business days from July 26 to comply. The order demands that Binance disables its website and mobile apps in Malaysia alongside ceasing “all media and marketing activities”.

The announcement also mandated Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao to ensure full compliance with the order. Malaysia’s securities regulator also urged citizens to desist from trading with crypto exchanges operating in the country illegally.

Binance-owned exchange WazirX is also being investigated by authorities in India to determine whether it was complicit in alleged money-laundering conducted by betting apps, which collected more than $134 million in the past 10 months. The Enforcement Directorate is investigating allegations that Chinese-operated betting apps laundered a portion of funds through WazirX.

CEO Changpeng Zhao remains optimistic about the future of Binance despite the recent regulatory issues faced by the exchange. He recently disclosed that Binance US, which operates separately from Binance, was looking to go public.

“Binance US is looking at the IPO route,” he said.

“Most regulators are familiar with a certain pattern or having headquarters, having corporate structure. But we are setting up those structures to make it easier for an IPO to happen.”

PayPal to launch crypto trading in UK

Published

on

PayPal has announced an extension of its cryptocurrency trading platform to UK customers.

This is a significant change of tune by the company, whose former CEO Bill Harris described Bitcoin in 2018 as “a useless payment system, and a ridiculous store of value”.

Now, however, the electronic payment service has slowly begun integrating cryptocurrencies on a large scale, with the moves described as part of an incremental new strategy by new CEO Dan Schulman as he revealed details in his recent Q2 reporting call.

“We continue to be really pleased with the momentum we’re seeing on crypto,” he said.

“We’re going to launch, hopefully, maybe even next month in the UK, open up trading there.”

Trading of crypto assets such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and LiteCoin (LTC) is planned to arrive for UK users by the end of August. Currently, PayPal allows cryptocurrency transactions up to $100,000.

However, PayPal retains control of user’s cryptocurrency in a move reminiscent of traditional centralised financial practices, with no mechanism for transfers to private wallets.

This leads to the ‘not your keys, not your coins’ argument.

Jose Fernandez da Ponte, Vice-President for Blockchains, Crypto, and Digital Currencies suggested this will be a future feature incorporated into the Venmo platform.

Venmo – an easy payment app owned by PayPal – has become a primary facilitator of cryptocurrency trading for the company. The app is popular in the United States, but has made little impact on the British market.

Schulman indicated that Venmo is preferential as it can be used easily in day-to-day commerce, also noting the app’s rapid growth to 70 million users and revenues in excess of 180%.

“We’re also seeing strong adoption and trading of crypto on Venmo,” he added.

“In this quarter, we expanded the Venmo value proposition to allow merchants and consumers to pay for goods and services.”

Crypto in commerce seems to be the predominate focus of PayPal, although its ‘super app’ will operate a centralised trading exchange, this is a competitive space with the likes of DashDirect launching earlier this week.

Automated Clearing House (ACH) sits at the core of PayPal’s market-dominating strategy, allowing vendors and merchants to set-up direct debits to user’s crypto wallets.

“We’re working right now on transfers to third-party wallets, and we really want to make sure that we create a very seamless process for taxes and tax reporting,” Schulman explained.

“And so we’re really looking at how do we integrate that into both the trading and the buy with crypto on our platform.”

Implementation of DeFi products into PayPal’s ecosystem is fundamental to the firm’s potential success in integrating commerce with mass adoption, a fact that doesn’t escape their CEO.

“How can we use smart contracts more efficiently?” he asked in the Q2 call.

“How can we digitise assets and open those up to consumers that may not have had access to that before?”

“There are some interesting DeFi applications as well. And so we are working really hard.”

Needless to say, PayPal’s moves on cryptocurrency are of huge significance for crypto adoption – with the platform representing an easy and widespread point of entry for new crypto users.
