  1. The largest social media network has reversed its ban on cryptocurrency ads, after a blanket ban in January that prohibited “ads that promote financial products and services that are frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices, such as binary options, initial coin offerings and cryptocurrency.” Facebook made it clear that the original ban was deliberately broad as bitcoin-related scams were mushrooming in the largely unregulated space. The social network promised it would be working “to better detect deceptive and misleading advertising practices... We will revisit this policy and how we enforce it as our signals improve.” In a recent Facebook Business blog post, Rob Leathern, Product Management Director wrote: “starting June 26, we’ll be updating our policy to allow ads that promote cryptocurrency and related content from pre-approved advertisers. But we’ll continue to prohibit ads that promote binary options and initial coin offerings.” Ex-Messenger executive to run new blockchain team Facebook has not only loosened up its policies around cryptocurrency ads. Reported Recode: What is the blockchain? And how should Facebook be using it? Finding answers to those questions is now the responsibility of David Marcus, the Facebook executive who has, until this week, been running the company’s standalone messaging app, Messenger. Marcus is leaving Messenger to take over a new internal team dedicated to exploring blockchain technology, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The team will be small at launch, fewer than a dozen people, but will include a few key Instagram executives who are moving over to join Marcus: Instagram’s VP of Engineering, James Everingham, and Instagram’s VP of Product, Kevin Weil. Recode also suggested that: Facebook’s decision to pursue blockchain technology will most certainly add some validity to the crypto industry, which has been very chaotic. This doesn’t mean that Facebook will build its own cryptocurrency, but there are many ways that blockchain technology could be used that have nothing to do with cryptocurrencies, including encrypted data storage. Meanwhile, over at The Motley Fool, it was suggested that: The reversal of the crypto advertising ban despite the regulatory heat on Facebook suggests founder Mark Zuckerberg is not against the crypto space and Facebook is investing heavily in the blockchain research space already. Given it is able to recruit the brightest tech heads out of leading U.S. universities and the Silicon Valley marketplace investors can expect whatever Facebook’s blockchain working group comes up with to be market-leading, with a digital currency or payments system of sorts likely to be flagship products.

  4. Subject of Ongoing Debate To date, no other technology has been the subject of such fierce debate except cryptocurrencies. Regardless of which side of the fence you stand on, the rise in popularity of cryptocurrencies simply cannot be ignored. 13 September 2017 is a day that will live in infamy for being the day that that JP Morgan’s CEO, Jamie Dimon, called Bitcoin a ‘fraud’, and even went the extent of saying that he would fire any employee trading bitcoin on the company’s accounts. Since then, a lot has happened in the world of Wall Street. Major financial institutions are now on a race to offer their clients the chance to trade cryptocurrency through their offerings. bank-banking-bitcoin-315788 Goldman Sachs On 2 May 2018, Goldman Sachs announced its plan to set up what appears to be the first Bitcoin trading operation at a Wall Street bank. Rana Yared, one of the Goldman Sachs executive overseeing the creation of the trading operation, said: “It resonates with us when a client says, ‘I want to hold Bitcoin or Bitcoin futures because I think it is an alternate store of value’.” This view is a hark-back to its previous declaration in 2014 that Bitcoin was not a currency, and claimed that it was too risky for banking companies investors. It does appear that Goldman has taken a long and winding path to get to where it is today, where it is now one of the top five most active corporate investors in blockchain technology. BarclayRumorsRumours that Barclays Bank may open a crypto trading desk has been refuted thus far. Barclays Group CEO Jes Staley highlighted that compliance and regulatory barriers are their biggest issue and further said: “Cryptocurrency is a real challenge for us because, on the one hand, there is the innovative side of it and wanting to stay in the forefront of technology improvement in finance. On the other, there is the possibility of cryptocurrencies being used for activities that the bank wants to have no part of.” Nevertheless, it has been reported that Barclays is gauging institutional demand for cryptocurrency to determine if the new business model is feasible. The following statement was made by the bank: “We constantly monitor developments in the digital currency space and will continue to have a dialog with our clients on their needs and intentions in this market.” Morgan Stanley It is trite that Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs have a long standing rivalry as the largest two stand-alone investment banks. On this front, it appears that Morgan is also rigorously stepping up its game when it comes to cryptocurrency. An unnamed source associated to Morgan’s trading desk said: “Truth be told this is the next arms race. Everyone is rushing into cryptos. Everyone. There isn’t a bank, a fund, a fund company, a former legend attempting to reclaim old glory, private equity, venture capital, lending, exchanges, consulting firms – everybody. It is the digital gold rush. And our firm wants to get there and pull as many levers as we can.” In the same way, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) may introduce a trading platform that would allow investors to buy and hold Bitcoin. On the topic of how most major financial institutions now have some sort of blockchain initiative within their company, Farzam Ehsani, a former blockchain lead at Rand Merchant Bank and now a co-founder and CEO of VALR told Cointelegraph: “All banks are realising they need to get onto this Blockchain boat, I don’t think many banks necessarily understand where the boat is going, but they realise that this is a development that is taking off and that if they want to be on this journey that everyone is going on, they need to be on the boat.” As the banking sectors rush towards cryptocurrency, this begs the question: “Who will win the race to bring crypto trading to the fiat masses first?” Easy Access: Download Our Mobile App click here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alluma.io&referrer=utm_source%3DSwadesh%26utm_medium%3DInfluencer%26utm_term%3DMobile%2520app%2520Download%26anid%3Dadmob Participate in our referral program, register with our trade exchange: https://trade.alluma.io/beta-registration?utm_campaign=Trading%20Competition%20-%20August%208-10&utm_source=Swadesh&utm_medium=Influencer%20Forums%20%26%20Social Referral Program guide click here to know more: https://blog.alluma.io/alluma-referral-program?utm_source=swadesh&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=Alluma%20referral%20program

  7. It’s important to remember what consumer problem Ripple is trying to solve - that of slow and expensive cross-border payments, whether person to person or business to business. Today the world sends more than $155 trillion across borders. This is a major global issue for individual consumers and businesses alike. Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple’s CEO is often quoted in various sources as saying that it is physically quicker to fly actual bank notes from say New York to London (yes, he means on a plane), than to send it through the correspondent banking system from the US to the UK. He is correct of course, if you assume that you send the payment from a bank in the US to a different bank in the UK. Correspondent banking is dominated globally by a small number of banks, with JPMorgan (Jamie Dimon’s bank) being the global no. 1. It’s big business and earns enormous revenues for the likes of JPMorgan, HSBC, Citibank etc. Why have banks and remittance companies signed-up for Ripple ? Firstly, what they have actually sign-up for, is RippleNet. Ripple now has over 100 banks and payment providers. RippleNet is a decentralized global blockchain network of these entities that use Ripple’s distributed financial technology and provides real-time messaging, clearing and settlement of financial transactions. This is the first time such a network has existed before and Ripple have done a great job at on-boarding these banks. When you join the network, you sign-up to their technology, and their tech of course provides a key part of the overall solution. The newest members of RippleNet include Credit Agricole, Currencies Direct, and they’re now on the path to join existing members like SEB and Siam Commercial Bank who have deployed Ripple solutions commercially. What are the benefits of RippleNet ? RippleNet has a standardised ruleset, which has been created with input from the banks, a liquidity solution which reduces costs (more about that shortly), plus speed and traceability of payments. Similar to say Visa or MasterCard, RippleNet provides a consistent payments experience through a (network member) Rulebook, which encompasses a set of payment rules and standards. Those of you familiar with payments will know that you can’t have a payment network without such standards and rules. This Rulebook delivers operational certainty and legal clarity for transactions over RippleNet. Both members and users sign a Network Service Agreement and implement the rules and standards as outlined in the Rulebook. The RippleNet Solutions RippleNet has two main solutions: xCurrent which processes real-time payments between the network from a messaging and settlement perspective. xRapid which provides ‘on-demand liquidity’ through access to a liquidity pool of digital assets i.e. XRP, that eliminates the need to hold nostro accounts in destination currencies. First hand experience of the liquidity problem in cross-border payments I can relate to this problem from first hand experience. Let’s take the problem of trying to transfer funds from say the US to Mexico, just like the stream of remittance companies now signing-up to xRapid. Note that US bank account to Mexico bank account or US over the counter payment to a Mexico bank account, are very popular transactions types for remittances. The issues with this are as follows: Identifying receiving banks: You have to talk to a lot of banks in Mexico in the first place to find an appropriate one. You may even have to run an RFP Bi-lateral contracts: Once you have identified your partner bank, you have to agree a bilateral contract. In the contract, you will need to cover topics such as messaging, settlement, commercial fees etc. This is a significant undertaking and the work involved can be significant. If a bank has already signed up to a network though like RippleNet, you don’t have to do this. Pre-funding nostro accounts: Worst of all in this scenario, given the volume of payouts in Mexico, any Mexican bank will require a large ’pre-fund’ into a dedicated account (i.e nostro account) of the sending party. This pre-fund is the source of the liquidity in the solution, or in other words the funds to payout remittances in Mexico whenever they are demanded by receivers. This process ties-up expensive capital that could be deployed elsewhere in any business Monitoring and topping-up the pre-fund: The pre-fund also has to be monitored and topped-up which requires reasonable effort and supporting processes. This end to end process is not to be underestimated in terms of required effort and represents a significant hurdle. How does xRapid solve this problem? This is where the use of XRP comes in. A payment journey from a US bank to a Mexican bank with xRapid in our example looks like this: Both US and Mexican banks connect directly to digital asset exchanges in both the US and Mexico When a transaction is originated, USD is exchanged into XRP in the US digital asset exchange In seconds, XRP is sent to the Mexican digital asset exchange and then converted into Mexican Pesos. So the exposure time to any XRP volatility is very short – indeed often commercial terms can be agreed with the asset exchanges to remove 100% of the risk for the banks The pesos are then made available on the Mexican side for the beneficiaries The diagram below illustrates the XRP to MXN (Peso) process: So in short, having this connection to xRapid solves the problem in a very neat way and shows XRP can be leveraged to enable the process. Recent success of xRapid with remittance companies In the last 12 months, Ripple has on-boarded the great and the good in the remittance world including MoneyGram, Western Union and more recently ViaAmericas. Many were slightly sceptical at first now see the benefits. According to recent pilot results, participating financial institutions saw a savings of 40-70 percent compared to what they normally pay expensive foreign exchange providers. In addition, an average xRapid payment took just over two minutes, compared to today’s average of 2-3 days when sending cross-border payments. The leg of the transfer that touches the XRP Ledger only takes 2-3 seconds with the additional processing time happening while the transfer moves across the intermediary digital asset exchanges and local payment rails. “It’s encouraging to see positive xRapid results because they validate what many in our industry already know: certain digital assets have utility,” said Asheesh Birla, SVP of Product at Ripple. “XRP’s utility lies in its speed and scalability, which makes it the perfect fit for cross-border payments. The XRP Ledger can send 1,500 transactions per second.” The financial institutions included in these pilots were testing payments from the U.S. to Mexico. This is a popular and competitive market, so payment providers are looking to gain a competitive advantage by lowering costs and speeding up payments with xRapid. Up until now, they have been required to either pre-fund bank accounts in Mexico - leading to tied-up capital - or go through the correspondent banking network, which is expensive and slow. “We were very pleased with our pilot results. It’s clear that xRapid can lower liquidity costs while increasing payment speed and transparency in a way that facilitates rigorous compliance controls. We believe that digital assets like XRP will play a key role in the future of cross-border payments, helping to safely address some of the structural inefficiencies of legacy settlement infrastructure as their adoption grows. We look forward to exploring next steps with Ripple.” - Paul Dwyer, Co-founder and CEO, Viamericas. Moving on to Commercial FX payments Another big prize is commercial foreign exchange payments. This is because transaction sizes are much bigger than person to person payments, and clients typically transact on a much more frequent basis. Currencies Direct a UK based commercial FX company were one of the first, but now Toronto based Cambridge Global Payments, which has over 13,000 clients around the world and handles $20 billion in international transactions annually, is piloting both xCurrent and xRapid. Mark Frey, Chief Operating Officer for Cambridge Global Payments, is confident that blockchain powered solutions like xRapid can not only help Cambridge improve their customers’ payments journey, but also spur critical innovation in their industry.. “We are excited for the insights this pilot program is expected to deliver, and we will use that information to help both Cambridge and FLEETCOR develop our use cases for blockchain in international payments,” said Frey. Conclusions A number of points spring to mind: It seems to me that Ripple is pushing hard to grow the RippleNet network and to continue to iteratively improve its products. Remittance companies were reluctant to team-up with Ripple as first, possibly because they can see the value of their networks reduced and therefore their margins falling. But if fees to send money fall, it is likely that the category will grow. If the likes of Ripple continue to play a bigger role in managing the ‘cross border payments plumbing’ going forward, then brands will become more important in the remittance business. As a marketing guy, I think remittance companies who have weak brands may fall by the wayside. With any network, you need toz` get a critical mass point (of members), for it to really take off. We are not there yet, but the pace of partner acquisition and piloting at Ripple is certainly increasing.

  9. At the start of this week, the regulation of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies (including ICOs) took effect in Thailand. The country’s tax code has also been updated to include taxation of cryptocurrencies at 15%, according to local media. Explained Thailand’s Finance Minister Apisak Tantivorawong: “It [the decree] was not meant to prohibit cryptocurrencies, initial coin offerings (ICOs) and other digital asset-related transactions, but to protect investors.” The main thrust of the degree is to regulate crypto operators like any other financial institution. Reported the Bangkok Post: “These licensed operators of digital assets are deemed financial institutions under the anti-money laundering law. The SEC has a wide-ranging power to stipulate rules to implement the decree, including regulations concerning calculation of the value of digital assets into Thai baht, and issuing and offering digital tokens for sale and the conduct of digital asset business. The operator of digital asset business must follow the rules common to financial institutions [to absorb risk, protect investors, and prevent fraud and money laundering].” According to the new decree, all cryptocurrency operators will be regulated by the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and are required to register with the SEC within 90 days from May 14. Bitcoin.com summarizes the key responsibilities and authority of the SEC under the new decree: “The first is to regulate the issuance and offering of cryptocurrencies and digital asset businesses. The second is to set the fees and requirements for the registration and approval of cryptocurrencies and their operators. The third is to establish a guideline for dealing with potential problems. The fourth concerns all other areas not previously mentioned.” The Bangkok Post reported that operators in violation of the regulations face serious penalties: “Dissemination of false or misleading information related to the financial condition or operating performance of an offer or of digital tokens or material features of the tokens themselves that could affect their prices or a decision to invest is punishable by a two-year jail term or a fine from 500,000 to 2 million baht.” Easy Access: Download Our Mobile App click here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alluma.io&referrer=utm_source%3DSwadesh%26utm_medium%3DInfluencer%26utm_term%3DMobile%2520app%2520Download%26anid%3Dadmob Participate in our referral program, register with our trade exchange: https://trade.alluma.io/beta-registration?utm_campaign=Trading%20Competition%20-%20August%208-10&utm_source=Swadesh&utm_medium=Influencer%20Forums%20%26%20Social Referral Program guide click here to know more: https://blog.alluma.io/alluma-referral-program?utm_source=swadesh&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=Alluma%20referral%20program
  10. The blockchain market in the Philippines has been thriving, with the nation's government being highly receptive towards the technology and working hard towards establishing itself as a blockchain-friendly destination in the region. Aiai Garcia, global business development lead for ConsenSys in the Asia-Pacific, wrote on Medium that the Philippines could be the next sandbox for the blockchain space in Asia. Garcia told Cryptovest in an interview that the blockchain market is developing rapidly in this country, with regulators receptive of the technology and adopting a “do no harm” policy. Cryptovest reported her as saying: This is indeed a very exciting time for the Philippines blockchain industry. There are plenty of exciting projects, and the good thing is that all the regulators we've talked with or are talking to are also excited about the technology and looking for ways to adopt and use blockchain to improve the current system. Today, the Philippines has one of the most advanced blockchain payments apps in the world (Coins.ph), which provides 1.5 million Filipinos alternative access to their finances and other value-added services. Filipino regulators were also amongst the first to announce the regulation of Bitcoin as security. Philippines May Use Blockchain for Tax Collection, Business Improvement Reported Cryptovest: On Monday, the country’s department of finance (DoF) said it was open to exploring the opportunities blockchain offers in the areas of tax collection, transparency, ease of doing business, and reduction of illegal smuggling. Cryptovest also quoted DoF spokesperson Paola Alvarez as saying: Yes, of course, we are open to exploring blockchain. Secretary (Carlos) Dominguez is really pushing for the application of financial technology. He wants to harness fintech to improve business, for example, payment of taxes online. Alvarez also added that Dominguez has already created a technical team to look into blockchain and fintech applications. In the meantime, the DoF has introduced its PHPay system, an online platform allowing taxpayers and other state clients to send money and other charges digitally to government agencies. Blockchain and crypto community called on to work with regulators Cryptovest also reported that: Last month, the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) called on the country’s blockchain and cryptocurrency community to help draft appropriate rules for the industry. SEC Commissioner Ephyro Luis Amatong was quoted as saying: The government wants to be proactive in creating rules about cryptocurrency. We want to engage all the stakeholders by asking for your feedback. We don't want to ban anything just because we don't understand something. That is why your feedback and your cooperation are important so we can come up with an appropriate rule about cryptocurrency trading.

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant, near-zero cost payments to anyone in the world. Litecoin is an open source, global payment network that is fully decentralized without any central authorities. Mathematics secures the network and empowers individuals to control their own finances. * Who is behind Litecoin? Founded by Charlie Lee, Litecoin is an open source software project released under the MIT/X11 license which gives you the power to run, modify, and copy the software and to distribute, at your option, modified copies of the software. The software is released in a transparent process that allows for independent verification of binaries and their corresponding source code. Find general information as well as a list of services that support Litecoin at the Litecoin Wiki. Up-to-date network statistics can be found at Litecoin Block Explorer Charts. Source code for Litecoin Core and related projects are available on GitHub. Key advantages of Litecoin source: Medium.com 1. Blockchain: The Litecoin blockchain is capable of handling higher transaction volume than its counterpart - Bitcoin. Due to more frequent block generation, the network supports more transactions without a need to modify the software in the future. 2.

  15. BitGo, the blockchain security firm, announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Bitcoin custodian Kingdom Trust, a South Dakota-chartered, fully regulated trust company with over $12 billion in assets under custody. Based in Murray, Kentucky, Kingdom Trust is among the few firms qualified to safeguard Bitcoin for institutional investors. The announcement about the acquisition is still subject to regulatory approvals. This deal comes on the heels of BitGo’s $43 million Series B funding round which concluded in November 2017. Products for the Future CCN reports: “Global financial markets have longed for an end-to-end solution offering both the technology to secure digital currencies as well as the legal and compliance controls necessary to integrate into mainstream financial portfolios,” said Mike Belshe, CEO of BitGo. BitGo and Kingdom are building products for the future – marrying the new technology with the safety and controls all investors require.” Further, Belshe told CoinDesk: "That wall of institutional money cannot hit until that custodianship is met, and this is the first custodian for U.S. folks," he said. "Going forward, as a new time of investors in crypto comes along — which is asset managers and hedge funds — they don't have the technical depth. They have other skills, and we want to bridge that."
