Regulators go HARD on Crypto, Another Exchange Liquidated, ‘Satoshi’ added to Oxford English Dictionary | CC#78

The Crypto Corner Video Podcast Ep:78

Visa, Mastercard, Stripe, eBay and Mercado Pago exit the Libra Association

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said backers of Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra dropped out of the project over concerns that the stablecoin project would not meet regulatory standards.

Speaking on CNBC, Mnuchin said that if Libra wouldn’t meet US money-laundering standards via the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, it could open them up to enforcement actions.

“I think they realized that they’re not ready, they’re not up to par,” Mnuchin said. “And I assume some of the partners got concerned and dropped out until they meet those standards.”

The withdrawals were followed by a draft report from the G7 working group on the global stablecoins, evaluating projects like Libra as a potential threat to the international financial stability due to regulatory challenges. These challenges are in fact the central banks manipulation to suppress competition and not really about protecting customers I must say. The Libra cryptocurrency payments project is shaking up central banking, according to the head of Sweden’s central bank which is also working on creating e-krona in the near future .
Speaking on CNBC Riksbank governor Stefan Ingves said the Facebook Libra project has been an “incredibly important catalytic event” forcing central bankers to reconsider their primary product: money.


SEC, CFTC, FinCEN Warn Crypto Industry to Follow US Banking Laws

The heads of three U.S. financial regulators warned the cryptocurrency industry to abide by banking laws in a joint statement published Friday.
The statement, signed by Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman Heath Tarbert, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) Director Kenneth Blanco and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Jay Clayton, “reminds” actors in the crypto space that they must comply with various banking and financial services laws in the U.S., regardless of what they call their cryptocurrencies or tokens.

Hacked Crypto Exchange Cryptopia, Gets Liquidated; Sold Assets Will Help In Repaying Traders

Cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia suffered a business-ending hack earlier this year when cybercriminals looted the firm of more than $16 million worth of Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens.

The hack continued for several days after the breach was discovered as it appears Cryptopia lost access to wallets. Part of the stolen funds that were transferred to Binance, the world’s leading crypto exchange by volume, has been frozen. It is still unknown how the exploit was carried out, or by whom, as the investigation by New Zealand police and international authorities continues.

When the hack was discovered the Company closed the exchange for trading. The Company then decided to reopen the exchange for the trade of certain crypto-assets in March 2019 and continued to trade through to the date of Liquidation. However, trade volumes were insufficient for the Company to meet its debts as they fell due and it was decided the appointment of liquidators was in the best interests of customers, staff and other stakeholders.

A report by Cryptopia’s liquidator, Grant Thornton, Cryptopia still owes its creditors a total of $4.22 million.

Next Bitcoin Halving Is 211 Days Away; With Smaller Miners Pushed Out How Will BTC Price React?

Bitcoin is about to halve its rewards soon and the crypto community is speculating about what will happen. After the two first halvings, which occurred in 2012 and 2016, another one is being expected for 2020. Both times that the rewards were halved before marked the beginning of a bull run that took the network to new highs.

Last week, several miners reunited at the World Digital Mining Summit, which was organized by Bitmain in Frankfurt. During the event, the co-founder of Bitmain, Jihan Wu, seemed pessimistic about the halving.

Wu pointed to Litecoin, which had it’s rewards halved some weeks ago. The price of the asset went down, not up. Litecoin’s price went from $31 to $135 USD during the year and then fell again to $57 USD after the halving. Could something similar happen to Bitcoin?

He also affirmed that people didn’t know what to expect during the first and second halving, but now people are betting that the price will go up. If it does not, there is a big possibility that the market sentiment may turn sour.

Another reason why this might be bad news, is that several ASIC miners will not be profitable to use anymore. The Antminer S9, for instance, was a very popular model, but it is barely able to make a profit now, so after the halving, the situation might become worse.


Satoshi, bitcoin’s smallest unit, is now added to Oxford English Dictionary

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED), published by the Oxford University Press, has officially added the word “Satoshi” to its database. The decision was made as part of a quarterly update this month.

The OED defines Satoshi as: “The smallest monetary unit in the Bitcoin digital payment system, equal to one hundred millionth of a bitcoin.”

The announcement follows the December 2014 update that saw “bitcoin” added to the respected resource. It defines bitcoin as “a digital currency in which transactions can be performed without the need for a central bank.”

In the latest quarterly update, the OED has also added the word “cryptocurrency” to its database, reports yahoo finance.

Free CRO airdrops – How to get them

CRO token soars by 460% in the last 30 days (at the time of writing) and shoots to #24 in ranking (according to marketcap). Here’s how I got them for FREE.CRO

For the past few months I have been receiving these monthly airdrops of a new token called CRO. It is courtesy of Crypto.com which is the company behind the (very popular) Monaco card and their native token MCO. I reported about the card a few months ago when I met with their CEO Kris Marszalek at a blockchain conference in Malta and now I want to shed some light on their new token which you can also get for free (if you are a hodler of the MCO token of course).

Basically, Crypto.com is a developing payments platform that aims to maximize crypto adoption through multiple payment channels including Visa cards. It aims to provide zero fees have developed a platform to purchase and trade crypto from your phone. Additionally, their crypto wallet has cash-back features and a Visa card powered by the MCO token. The development of the Crypto.com Chain also includes the creation of the Crypto.com Chain Token (CRO) — that will enable cross-asset intermediary currency settlement.

The reason I am so excited by getting their new token (CRO) is the fact that it’s being airdropped at the beginning of EVERY MONTH because I do hodl MCO and I have been a fan since 2017. I was keeping the tokens in my Bittrex trading account and in Jaxx wallet for quite some time….until I found out about the airdrops. At that point I downloaded the app on my phone and moved all my tokens there so I can take advantage of this great deal. You can find out all the details about this on their help-page but  to cut it short, you every month, 166,666,666 CRO will be awarded to Crypto.com Wallet App MCO token holders based on their MCO token ownership relative to the MCO token Total Supply.

Currently that means for every 10 MCO you hodl, you receive 52.76 CRO and with their strong community, these tokens are quickly becomming a hot property week after week.

In the past month alone, the CRO token has swelled by more than 400% (as you can see from my screenshot above) and I know that in two weeks from now I’m getting the next month’s airdrop, so my holdings increase yet again.

I have been using the Crypto.com Wallet & Card App to buy, sell, track and send crypto. It comes together with a no-annual-fee metal MCO Visa Card and some great perks like cashback and airport lounge access.

Interested? Hear this: to get you started, I am sending you a sign-up bonus of $20.00 so go ahead and download the app by using my referral link https://platinum.crypto.com/r/i596zgv11f  ( you’ll see my referral code: i596zgv11f on the signup page) and claim your bonus.

This limited offer is on a first come first serve basis, it will not be open indefinitely.

You can purchase MCO tokens from the app or from any of the exchanges on this list:

mco-2

Alternatively, like many others, you can simply just buy the CRO tokens directly, if hodling MCO is not to your taste. I personally believe in the growth of that token, so I have no problems hodling it for coming year or more. I’ve had it for the past 2 years and it’s one of a few tokens that I see as a long-term holdings, but that’s me.

Good luck and enjoy the free airdrops. They come on 5th of each month…until supply is diminished.

Oh and last thing before I finish this article, here’s a screenshot of my airdrops in case you aren’t sure if this is for real. As you can see, I was adding more MCO so my airdrops increased every time.


Wondering which offline, hardware wallet I am most fond of? No doubt it is the Ledger Nano S and now eagerly waiting for their newest device – Ledger Nano X with support for over 200 different tokens and coins. You can check out my tutorials about it and order yours here:

Ledger Nano S - The secure hardware wallet

BNB vs KCS : Two utility tokens to consider

There are many staking coins and various ways they reward their hodlers. Some require running a masternode, others require longer lock-in period of the coins or a higher amount limit. And then there are those with a simpler, more user-friendly strategy like BNB and KCS which share a similar model so it makes sense to compare them here.

Both coins are serving as utility tokens for two big exchanges:

Binance is currently the fastest growing alt coin exchange platform with over 3 million customers and an excellent selection of alt coins. Kucoin has a smaller memberbase and subsequently, a smaller volume which is also reflected in the value of their coin. Both BNB and KCS have been gaining traction in the past 6 months and have produced impressive results but the obvious leader in this race so far is Binance Coin with an average price of $13 (at the time of writing) and estimated market cap of 1.5 billion USD. Kucoin Shares is lagging in comparison and currently stands at around $4 with an estimated market cap of 43 million USD.

More about Binance Coin (BNB) :
The current circulating supply of BNB is 114,041,290 from which the company allegedly has around 80 million safely stored. Total supply is capped at 200 million but they are burning some of these (if I am correct they buy 20% of the supply per year back and destroy it) to increase the price which is becoming a common practice for many alt coins.

Rewards: discounted fees to members depending on the amount of BNB they stake. Binance as an exchange has a fee of 0.10% on each trade. When using BNB this fee is reduced by 50%. The amount is automatically calculated and reduced from the BNB Tokens in the wallet. This is the way Binance is rewarding its customers for staking its coin which in return brings more value to the coin due to scarcity. Should the demand for the coin continue, it’s a win-win scenario for all members of Binance who are staking. The higher the amount you have, the less fees you pay, which is another incentive for higher staking.

Kucoin Shares has a circulating supply of 11,135,728 KCS and a total supply capped at 200 million KCS as well.
KuCoin Shares were initially distributed through a private sale and an ICO as a means of funding the development and growth of the exchange. Like Binance coin(BNB), KCS can be used to pay trading fees, and doing so rewards users with a significant discount. Unlike Binance Coin, however, KuCoin provides added value to its customers by sharing 50% of all trading fees with all KCS holders. In other words, the exchange is paying a percentage dividend from their trading fees collected for all coins that their members trade at all times. Every quarter, KuCoin takes 10% of its profits to purchase and burn KuCoin Shares. This program will continue each quarter that KuCoin is profitable until 100 million of the 200 million coins in the total supply have been burned.

Both exchanges offer an affiliate program where you are paid commissions for bringing new customers but the terms change every now and then so best will be to check what is the current state of their affiliate plans. With Binance the referral commissions could be up to 40% (for those who stake 500 BNB or more) which can be very rewarding especially for those who have large networks. You have your own referral link that you need to share with your friends and fellow trading enthusiasts and you can start earning some additional revenue in no time.

So far both coins have a lot in common and both have a great potential for further growth but please don’t take this post as a buy-signal. Always analyze the market well first and look for the right entry point. I’m sharing this to bring awareness and give you a sense of perspective for possible trading opportunities. The two exchanges are still in their early days and are experiencing growth which is a positive too. Should anyone decide to get involved, they must keep an eye on all news surrounding the exchanges because it is very likely that any major disruption to the business will reflect in the value of their coin. With that said, I am happily trading both and trying to always keep a healthy balance of either coin on their exchanges.

Why Is Bitcoin going down?

Recently I reported on the increasing market manipulation going on with the Bitcoin markets and it seems there’s even more to it.
In my latest Crypto Corner (my weekly news and market commentary) I pointed out a very good article that throws more light on the subject.
