US Government Passes Law to Study Blockchain1 month ago

Washington D.C. — The  "Advancing innovation to assist law enforcement act” was passed in Congress yesterday. The Act requires the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network to study blockchain technology, which will then present its report to the Senate Financial Committee. The purpose is to analyze blockchain to see how it can combat financial crimes including money laundering. While the US has lagged behind other countries like Japan and Turkey in blockchain and cryptocurrency adoption, perhaps this study and report will give them the confidence to endorse blockchain tech as a whole.

Libra Faces Further Delays1 month ago

Geneva — Facebooks Libra cryptocurrency faces another round of delays. Even though it has been only 3 months since Facebook announced its own brand of cryptocurrency, France and Germany have already stated they will not honor or support it. Bertrand Perez of the Libra Association located in Switzerland stated recently that “What is important is that we need to comply with the regulators and we need to make sure that they are on board with us and fully comfortable with our solutions.”

Mark Zuckerberg has stated before that the Libra will not launch until all governments and municipalities have signed off on it. As it stands, Libra may not launch in its current incarnation.

Medici Ventures Bets on Blockchain ID Firm 1 month ago

Utah — Medici Ventures, a wholly-owned branch of Overstock.com, has invested $2 million into Evernym. Evernym is currently creating a platform for identities on the blockchain. Evernym President Steve Havas is ambitious and focused on delivery, stating “Right from the start we’ve made it a rule not to cut corners in terms of ensuring a privacy by design, privacy by default position for our products – ultimately we’re designing applications that we as individuals would be happy to use.”

H&R Block Offers Customers Crypto Advising1 month ago

Kansas City — Tax firm H&R Block has begun offering an advising service for cryptocurrency. In a press release yesterday, the company revealed it would be helping people who had received an IRS letter inquiring about unreported cryptocurrency trades. A round of 10,000 letters has been sent out this year by the IRS to individuals with large crypto transactions that went unreported. As each crypto trade and transaction is mainly seen as a taxable event in the US, each one should be reported to the IRS. 

Other tax companies have begun to assist as well. The large firm PwC released a tool designed to “provide assurance services for entities engaging in cryptocurrency transactions.”

Bitcoin Price Plummets, Experts Weigh In1 month ago

San Francisco — The price of Bitcoin dropped significantly over the last 24 hours to the low $8,000’s before recovering slightly. Opinions as to why the price sank are varied, ranging from technical analysts to the lackluster launch of the Bakkt futures contract. Of specific interest is the $8,500 CME futures gap that appeared in June of this year. While futures gaps do not necessarily need to be filled, they tend to be hit most of the time. 

From there the price of Bitcoin is in a bit of a confusing area. Bulls will be looking for upwards price action to coincide with Fibonacci levels, while bears will be anticipating further down pressure to break support.

Coindesk Fooled, Amends Kik/Kin Article1 month ago

New York — Cryptocurrency news desk, Coindesk, has amended an article it released a day ago. It previously reported that the CEO of the Kik messaging program had admitted he would be stepping down amidst an investigation by the SEC. An imposter allegedly made the comments as the real CEO was on a plane from Israel to Washington. 

As it stands, it appears that the Kik messenger service will be shutting down, while the non-profit Kin foundation will remain operational. Kik raised a substantial amount of funding through an ICO in 2017 and has been under investigation by the SEC as an unregistered security. The case is ongoing.

Bitcoin Hash Rate Unexpectedly Drops 40%1 month ago

San Francisco — After soaring to new heights, the hash rate of the Bitcoin network dropped 40% overnight. As more computers worldwide compete to solve the mathematical formulas required to earn Bitcoin, the hash rate, or computing power, rises. A strong hash rate is indicative of a healthy market and shows competition between Bitcoin miners. 

Several reasons for this sharp drop have been suggested, ranging from China ending subsidies for free hydro-electric power to a variance in block time rewards. At the time of writing, the hash rate had already began a recovery.

Rehito “Ray” Hatoyama is a rebel.

While most Westerners will not recognize the name, Ray Hatoyama enjoys an established reputation throughout Japan. In an interview with the CEO of Constellation Network, Benjamin Jorgensen, Ray briefly touched on his family's history of innovation and forward-thinking practices. While he did not understand it as a child, this mindset would shape his life for decades to come.

Ray’s grandfather was the Head of Research and Development for Sony as the company was beginning to establish itself as an electronics giant. As an engineer, Ray's grandfather helped streamline and shrink the size of transistor radio technology to the size of a golf ball. This design change occurred at a time when the size of the radios was much bulkier and cumbersome. Engineering samples were being confiscated in the mail as the handlers did not believe the golf-ball-sized object could power an entire radio. After laughing, Ray's grandfather told the engineers to switch on the transistors which immediately began broadcasting the local stations. This technology was later integrated into the Tr-610 Sony radio, which went on to win several design awards, launch Sony as a worldwide corporation, and ultimately sell over 500 million worldwide.

As a youth, Ray lived in Boston, Sydney, and Tokyo, which imparted a strong sense of global community and curiosity that included cultural interests and principles. As a teenager, he had already traveled to more countries than most people do their entire lives.

After receiving his MBA at Harvard Business School, Ray took a position in 2008 at Sanrio, the parent company of Hello Kitty. As the COO for US operations, Ray inherited a division suffering from debt and a global market cap of $500 million. While the Hello Kitty brand has always been popular with children in Japan, Ray took it upon himself to help it expand and grow into new sectors. Due to his exposure to international audiences in his travels abroad, he was able to branch out to the worlds of fashion, entertainment, and media; all focused towards an older demographic. No longer was Hello Kitty constrained to the youth market but was instead enjoying licensing by brands such as H&M, Gap, and Diesel.

To help propel this initiative, Ray had to introduce “decentralization” and the notion of “open innovation” to Sanrio. Before Ray, all creative control was centralized with around 50 core designers at the headquarters in Japan. Local and global markets were unable to innovate or add new ideas to the Hello Kitty lineup. By implementing open innovation and networks, Ray created satellite offices around the world, partnered with local talent, and implemented several business models to accommodate and work with over 1,000 different companies, each with access to designers and marketers. This decentralization of labor led to more ideas and fostered innovation. Ray’s new global network of local licensees helped to create new and original Hello Kitty designs and products.

It is this same passion for creative thinking and rebellious nature that Ray is bringing to the blockchain space. He is utilizing the same principles his grandfather did to make the "Impossible" golfball radio transistors. His interest in Constellation Labs came through a realization that blockchain can act as "middleware" similar to what VMware in the early 2000s. VMware is a tech company that pioneered cloud computing and middleware solutions that would later integrate into Amazon's Web Services (AWS). By acting as a conduit for large data sets, middleware can facilitate and speed up the sharing of data within cloud computing. 

In a similar initiative, Constellation Network will announce a partnership later this month. This partnership, will not only allow nodes on the DAG network to be hosted on third-party platforms in a plug-and-play style, but it will also allow a user to spin up an entire node with a "one-click" interface. This ease of connectivity will open up institutions and other large clients across multiple markets to easily integrate Constellation technology and test their data validation services. 

One such example of a client that will need turnkey solutions to integration and access to Constellation's tools, is the USAF. Benjamin Diggles, VP of Business Development at Constellation, spoke more specifically about the Air Force partnership in a press release. 

"The USAF has a multitude of data sources like drones, planes, and satellites that need to be secured. Clean and consolidated data that can be queried instantly is a big need within the defense apparatus."

Coordinating the flow of data across diverse sources requires a product that has flexibility built into its foundation. This flexibility is one of the reasons the US Air Force is working directly with Constellation Labs. It will, among other increases in functionality, create secure communication networks to handle information flow.

Additionally, the ability to quickly install a node is an oft-overlooked aspect in the cryptocurrency space. As blockchain and direct acyclic graph projects are reliant on nodes to verify and process data, nodes act as the backbone of infrastructure. Unlike other cryptocurrency nodes, however, the DAG network increases in speed with each additional node. In an industry where Ethereum and even Bitcoin nodes are difficult to establish, this gives DAG an advantage in usability and scalability.

Near the end of the interview, Ray took a moment to emphasize that while all this technology is exciting, we also need to look at the human element. As the man who grew Sanrio's market cap from $500 million to $6.5 billion in four years, he understands the impact a well-coordinated team can achieve in an industry. In his role as a trusted advisor to Constellation Network, Ray is helping carve out new use cases in the blockchain field, and at the same time, maybe encouraging all of us to be a little more rebellious.

Binance US Portal Begins Trading Tomorrow1 month ago

Malta — Binance, the worldwide cryptocurrency exchange, will begin allowing US customers to trade on the regional site starting tomorrow. While the US portal has been open since last week for registrations and KYC document submittal, details about the launch date have been few. Initially, the exchange will offer only 7 cryptocurrency pairs for trading, with more to follow. As Binance continues to grow in size across the globe, it is taking a conservative position in regard to regulations. It has gone through the steps to comply with the Digital Asset Risk Assessment Framework and is cleared to operate within 37 States. Notably absent from that list is New York and Texas.

Satoshi Likely Dead, says Arthur Hayes1 month ago

Singapore — BitMex CEO and Bitcoin bull, Arthur Hayes, spoke in Singapore earlier this week concerning the fate of the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. “I think they’re already dead,” opined Arthur when asked if he ever thought the identity of Satoshi would be revealed. Theories about Satoshi’s identity have been numerous and varied, ranging from mathematician Hal Finney, Elon Musk, and the CIA or NSA.

Never one to mince words,  Arthur is confident that one Bitcoin will be worth $100,000 in 3 years, or 2022. This prediction seems conservative when compared to other predictions calling for $1 million and more from crypto celebrities like John McAfee.

Bakkt Trading Goes Live1 month ago

San Francisco — Today the Bitcoin-backed futures product on Bakkt went live. After over 18 months of speculation, planning, and delays, the platform began taking orders at 5 PM GMT, 9/22/2019. While expectations from the cryptocurrency were high, most of Twitter seemed to be less than thrilled at the initial volume, which accompanied a drop in the price of Bitcoin to below the $10,000 level it has been occupying for the last couple weeks.

Volume has increased, rising to 62 Bitcoin (~$600,000) as of the time of writing. As the Bakkt launch was a very public announcement, garnering attention from multiple news outlets, a “sell the news” event was to be expected. However, the foundation has been set for institutional investors to enter the space.

Google Heralds New Age of Quantum Computing1 month ago

San Francisco — For the first time ever, a quantum computer has surpassed another supercomputer in a specific test. This “Quantum Supremacy” occurred when a quantum computer at Google completed a test in 3 minutes that would take a traditional supercomputer at IMB 10,000 years. Traditionally quantum computers have been seen as unrealistic computational devices and on a 10-year path to an actual use case. With this breakthrough, the timetable has been pushed up substantially.

While this development theoretically poses a threat to the encryption of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, experts say there is still time to implement a newer, more robust cryptography algorithm. Openbazaar’s Chris Pacia stated in a 2013 blog post “Quantum computing would likely double the size of a key that could be effectively brute-forced. That might cause AES-128 to fall, but AES-192 and AES-256 should still be safe.”

VC Calls for Higher Bitcoin Prices1 month ago

A managing partner at Blocktown Capital, James Todaro, has a list of 5 reasons he thinks Bitcoin is going up in the near future. One reason is that Bitcoin is now available to institutional investors and larger companies to buy. Furthermore, the very fact that Bitcoin has survived as a cryptocurrency for over 10 years is a massive achievement. Interestingly enough, Bitcoin's historical gains have been accessible for anyone who had an internet connection from 2008 on. Historically speaking only accredited investors had access to gains of that size, Bitcoin represents the first time retail consumers have had access to these kinds of gains before Wall St traders.

Motley Fool U.K. Still Hates Bitcoin1 month ago

United Kingdom — The Motley Food U.K. has strong ideas about Bitcoin and why it is still not an ideal investment. As stated in previous articles, Motley Fool reiterated that Bitcoin is a speculative investment that could go to 0. Instead, it recommends buying into the FTSE 250, stating that is has grown from 9,000 points to 20,000 points over the last 20 years. This breaks down to a 4% increase year over year, below the stock markets average of 6-7%. While the power of compounding interest is indeed mighty and well know, a small investment in Bitcoin over a similar period of time would have produced consistent returns dwarfing any other stock over that time. 


The Motley Fool continues to argue that Bitcoin “has no fundamentals and is instead reliant solely upon investor sentiment.” Perhaps they should read The Bitcoin Standard or a similar book that explains the basics of blockchain and Bitcoin’s value proposition.

Patrick Byrne Liquidates Assets for “Hard Money”1 month ago

This comes shortly after he voluntarily stepped down after revealing his involvement in several national security issues. In total, the monetary value of his positions were in excess of $90 million, which he has reallocated to gold, silver, and Bitcoin in order to hedge against upcoming financial turmoil. The precious metals will be scattered to various locations around the world and his crypto will be secured in a similar manner.

Writing on the website deepcapture.com Patrick explained his process: “The crypto is stored in the place where all crypto is stored: in mathematical mist, behind long keys held only in the memory of someone who is quite good at storing such things in memory (with paper backups in the hands of a priest I met 35 years ago who never sits foot in the West).”

Bitcoin Market Braces for Bakkt1 month ago

New York — As the crypto market recovers from the pulling of the VanEck Bitcoin ETF, another event looms over the horizon. In two days Bakkt will open its business operations and allow Bitcoin-backed daily and futures products to be sold. This will give large businesses and institutions to gain exposure to Bitcoin through a regulated exchange, which has the Bitcoin reserves backing each product. 

Bakkt is owned in large part by ICE, the Intercontinental Exchange, which itself is a $52 billion market cap entity. ICE is the parent company of the NYSE and largest ETF platform: ICE Futures. When announced in 2018 Bakkt saw large investments by firms such as Pantera Capital, Starbucks, and Microsoft.

Until the Bitcoin ETF is approved, Bakkt will be the most publicly recognizable for large traders to gain access to Bitcoin exposure.
