NVIDIA Lawyers Dismiss Investors’ Crypto Mining Doc Requests: Report
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f65142413a2d.jpeg
NVIDIA Corp. lawyers are pushing back against investors demanding to peel back the curtain on the chipmaker's 2017 cryptocurrency mining hardware business. According to Law360, NVIDIA's lawyers argued before a Delaware Court of Chancery official Thursday that plaintiffs lack sufficient evidence to probe the company's 2017's "crypto craze." Investors are suing NVIDIA for allegedly understating a crypto mining hardware sales spike that they claim undermined NVIDIA's other chip businesses, according to the report. NVIDIA made as much as $1 billion selling graphics processing units (GPUs) to miners during the crypto craze height, according to plaintiffs in a different class action suit. The Delaware plaintiffs further claim NVIDIA executives leveraged the unsustainable sales boom to sell $147 million in company stock "at artificially inflated prices," Law360 reported. NVIDIA emerged from the boom with too much inventory and overly rosy revenue projections that had to be adjusted downward to the detriment of the company's share price, investors claimed. NVIDIA lawyers argued the investors are cherrypicking executives' statements, are being inconsistent in their records requests and may lack standing, according to the Law360 report.。......

Mystery shoppers reveal that banks are struggling with COVID-19 response
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f64f96647ab2.jpeg
A recent study examined the response of the 15 leading North American banks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers discovered that tellers only at three banks wore masks 100% of the time. Participants visited 700 bank branches across the continent belonging to leading institutions, such as Bank of America, Chase, Citibank and TD Bank. Overall, these 15 banks operate over 33,000 branches. Source: Dalbar . It appears that the ATMs present the sorest point for the banks. The ATMs in only 19% of the examined U.S. branches had a sanitizer available, and only 20% of the branches were equipped with dividers between the ATMs. Canadian branches did not fair much better either. Another major criticism comes from the fact that the banks are not doing enough to inform and nudge their customers toward alternative banking channels. Only 22% of the branches were inviting their customers to use online banking instead, and only 15% were suggesting the use of ATMs instead of interactions with the tellers. Source: Dalbar . Meanwhile, the teller area was being cleaned between customers in only 19% of the surveyed branches, and the ATMs were cleaned between use in only 7% of the branches. The COVID-19 pandemic has made the case for contactless payments, including cryptocurrency, as pressing as ever. The United States lags behind many nations when it comes to contactless payments. It is unlikely a coincidence that during the pandemic, the 14 leading global banks have lost $635 billion in market capitalization.。......

Checking In With Terra, the Korean Stablecoin Firm Bringing Online Shoppers to Crypto
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f650613b20d7.jpeg
You're going to have to wait a little longer for the liquidity mining–powered savings account from Korean stablecoin maker Terra. The savings account's returns will be based on various proof-of-stake currencies, plus additional yield over the first five years in the form of its growth token. The system is called Anchor and was originally expected to go live in October; the latest update from the company has pushed that back to late November. That said, the project is riding forward on a wave of momentum. The firm's Chai payments app, in which the Terra stablecoin is prominently featured, now has over 2 million accounts. Subscribe By signing up, you will receive emails about CoinDesk products and you agree to our terms & conditions and privacy policy. “Growth over the last couple months has been largely driven by volume lift from COVID-friendly categories," Terra co-founder Do Kwon told CoinDesk via email. “For example, some of the high performing recent integrations include [Korean food-delivery service] Yogiyo and [online grocer] Hello Nature, both of which have seen tremendous growth in the recent months." Taking a page from Square's playbook, Terra has a card called the Chai Card. Users accumulate points and can redeem them for outsized rewards with specific merchants who are seeking user acquisitions, much like Boosts on Square's Cash App. Terra should soon have more visibility in the Western market as it bridges to Ethereum, offering a wrapped version of its stablecoin on the leading decentralized finance (DeFi) blockchain. Kwon noted, “USDC and Tether have non-trivial seizure and collateral risks, as the underlying USD deposits can either be seized or censored." Further, DAI lags demand, he said, because it's too costly to mint. Terra has the additional advantage of offering versions that mirror several other fiat currencies beyond USD, with Terra-based stablecoins for Korea, the Philippines and Mongolia. “Wrapped Terra stablecoins will become available on Ethereum starting mid-October soon after our Columbus-4 mainnet upgrade on October 3rd," Do wrote, adding: "We are already in conversations to integrate wrapped Terra stablecoins with a range of popular DeFi primitives as well as centralized exchanges, so look forward to seeing Terra as a serious contender for stablecoin dominance on Ethereum."。......

Bitcoin-based artwork smashes records, sells for $100k
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f64eb1d647a5.jpeg
“ Right Place & Right Time, " a digital art piece based on Bitcoin's fluctuating price action, has sold for more than $100,000. "The Master NFT of Right Place & Right Time was sold to TokenAngels for $101,593. — but happy to call it $100,000," Matt Kane, the art's creator, told Cointelegraph on Sept. 18. NFT stands for non-fungible token — a unique digital asset that does not synonymously value others like it. NFTs have begun surfacing as artwork, giving the token holder ownership over the art. Right Place & Right Time is an NFT art piece showing a creatively designed image of Bitcoin's logo. The patterns and overall look, however, change along with Bitcoin's price action. Kane said he cannot remember when he actually began creating the art piece. "I've lost track of time in creating it," he said. "My artwork always takes however much or little time that the work demands. The original digital painting was made last November and then I began preparing it to become a programmable artwork on Async Art in January. There's been countless tweaks and preparations to perfect it's homecoming to Volatility.art." Many artists put their masterpieces on the blockchain via Async Art, while Volatility.art is a place viewers can see Bitcoin art formed from its daily price action. Right Place & Right Time stands as a unique piece. The master NFT sold for $100,000. This master NFT, however, will create 210 different NFT art works, based on Bitcoin's price action, and the subsequent patterns that pop up on the master art piece. "Each NFT will be created by the original master NFT," Kane explained. "The compositions are created using an algorithm I wrote which visualize a single day in Bitcoin price volatility," he noted. "I'll maintain some creative influence, altering colors and other design elements as the project matures over time," he said, adding: "And of course I curate which days are minted." When each of the 210 are purchased, the master NFT owner receives 21% of each sale, Kane explained. The master holder can also opt to buy the print copies of these subsequent artworks as well, or receive the same 21% cut if they are sold elsewhere. The 210 and 21% numbers give tribute to the Bitcoin's maximum supply — 21 million coins. The crypto and blockchain space has seen its art scene rise as of late, as a number of various art-related initiatives have popped up across the industry.。......

Bitcoin Whales Aren’t Selling Their BTC; It May Be Boosting Its Price
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200921/btcn_5f684bc4be0b9.jpeg
Bitcoin's price action has been rather mixed as of late. Although the cryptocurrency has been slowly grinding higher, the lower-$11,000 region has proven to be a heavy resistance zone that is hampering its growth. The intensity of the selling pressure here seems to indicate that bulls may not be quite as strong as they previously appeared to be, indicating that the benchmark digital asset may be on the cusp of seeing further downside. Despite these short-term signs of weakness, one factor that is boosting Bitcoin and could indicate that a massive upside move is imminent is a trend seen while looking towards the wallets of whales. These large BTC holders have not been selling into this recent push higher, which is a historically positive sign that indicates upside could be imminent. Because these large sellers can move the market, their sustained holding pattern indicates that they are waiting for higher prices before they start selling. It could also provide the market with a boost, as there is currently less selling pressure on BTC than typically seen when it consolidates below key resistance levels. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down marginally at its current price of $10,950. This is around the price at which it has been trading throughout the past few days. Bulls have been unable to shatter the heavy selling pressure that exists between $11,000 and $11,300. Each attempt to do so has been met with spikes in selling pressure that send it back down to its current price level. This consolidation may be coming about as bulls attempt to build up greater strength, but the multiple rejections it has faced so far does seem to spell trouble for its near-term outlook. Data from analytics firm CryptoQuant shows that whales are holding their crypto despite Bitcoin's multiple $11k rejections. The firm's CEO spoke about this in a recent tweet, explaining that the Exchange Whale Ratio has now hit a yearly low, with lower whale selling rates providing a boost to BTC. “Exchange Whale Ratio hits the year low—the fewer whales moving to exchanges, the less dumping, and makes the higher BTC price." Assuming that this trend persists, it could indicate that Bitcoin will continue facing less macro selling pressure. This would bolster its outlook and potentially lead it to see significantly further upside in the days and weeks ahead.。......

Privacy-Focused Enigma Files With SEC for ENG Token
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f64f803e52a3.jpeg
Blockchain startup Enigma filed a registration statement for its ENG token with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. According to the document published on the SEC's portal Friday, the registration statement is tied to the privacy-focused firm's February settlement with the regulatory body regarding the project's 2017 initial coin offering (ICO). The firm's registration statement notes the ENG tokens are currently used as a payment tool on the project's data network and shouldn't be viewed as resembling traditional securities. “ENG tokens lack features of such securities, including the right to receive a dividend or distribution; ENG tokens also do not provide holders with any voting, liquidation or preemption rights," the project's registration statement notes. According to the filing, once the registration statement becomes effective Enigma would be subject to the Exchange Act, which means it would be required to file an annual 10-K, quarterly 10-Q and current 8-K reports. Earlier this week, Enigma also announced it launched "secret smart contracts" on its mainnet. According to the project, its “Secret Network" is now focusing on scaling and building connections to public networks such as Ethereum and Cosmos Hub. The Secret Network also announced a partnership with, and investment from, Hashed, a blockchain firm in Asia. The investment is for an undisclosed amount.

Why Binance Coin (BNB) Rose by 55% in 13 Days, Causing Demand to Soar
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200921/btcn_5f684b20a1f5e.jpeg
Binance Coin (BNB), the native token of Binance Chain and Binance Smart Chain (BSC), surged by 55% in 13 days. Some high-profile investors anticipated the strong performance of BNB following the release of BSC. On September 12, Kelvin Koh at the Asia-based cryptocurrency investment firm Spartan Group, said BNB would likely rally due to staking. With the launch of Binance Smart Chain and the launch pool, it became possible for users to stake Binance Coin on Binance. That enables users to earn yield, similar to yield farming on Ethereum-based DeFi platforms. In recent months, the DeFi craze has led Ethereum and Uniswap activity to surge. Users are staking various assets like Ethereum (ETH) and Wrapped Bitcoin to earn yield on DeFi platforms. Consequently, the total value locked in Ethereum-based DeFi protocols surged from $1.88 billion on July 1 to $9.1 billion on September 18. The introduction of native BNB staking made the asset more compelling for mainstream users, Koh said. He explained: “For the past 8 months, $BNB has been a really boring asset. That changed with launch pool. Imagine holding an asset that can consistently generate a high yield simply by staking it on Binance. No need to worry about SC risk, anon founders, metamask or yield farming strategies." BNB has struggled to record a major rally throughout the first half of 2020. Subsequent to the release of Binance Smart Chain and the launch pool, Koh said he anticipates the demand to rise. Emphasizing on the constant demand for Binance Coin the launch pool and DeFi growth creates, Koh added: “As the DeFi boom makes its way into the mainstream media, it will draw new comers into crypto who will likely probably participate in yield farming this way. For $BNB, this creates a constant demand for holding/staking the token making it an attractive asset to own. Meanwhile fees that accrue from the exchange continue to burn existing supply. I expect $BNB to claw back the underperformance YTD as a result." Atop the rising demand for Binance Coin, the Binance Smart Chain transaction volume is also rapidly surging. Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, said: “BSC transaction volume is now 26% of ETH. Did a quarter of users move already? or is this just demand that was curbed due to high fees? Looks like the later as ETH tx count didn't drop much. Growing, not taking, the pie." Whether Binance Smart Chain would be able to compete against major blockchain networks in the DeFi space over the long run remains uncertain. With Ethereum leading the market, interoperable blockchains such as Polkadot and Cosmos are arising as potential competitors.。......

INX Crypto Exchange Has Started Distributing Tokens From Its Blockchain-Based IPO
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f64f8075b0fc.jpeg
Roughly 210 of the more than 500 registered and whitelisted investors in INX's initial public offering (IPO) on Ethereum have put money into the sale as of Friday, Sept. 18, three days after the first distribution transaction took place. The cryptocurrency and security token exchange's blockchain IPO is the first of its kind and gives observers and issuers a ground-level view of what's going on through the Etherscan block explorer. The public can see roughly the number of investors receiving INX tokens after putting money into the sale by watching the number of holders on the token tracker. (Some of these are internal operational transactions, however, such as when Tokensoft loads the distribution smart contract.) Traditionally, to get information on who beneficially owns an interest in shares held at central securities depositories like the Depository Trust Company, investors or issuers would have to go to the investment banks or broker-dealers who coordinated the sale. “I love that investors can purchase and get the tokens directly from the issuer the same day," said Mason Borda, CEO of Tokensoft. “Over time, as our technology and processes mature, this will all occur in real time." Per INX's IPO prospectus, the company was required by U.S. regulators to first raise $7.5 million before being able to distribute tokens or raise funds in the form of crypto.。......

German Lawmakers Vote ‘Nein’ on Blockchain for Transparency on Megaprojects
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f64ea22b69ad.jpeg
Germany's money-hemorrhaging effort to build a sleek new airport for Berlin might have convinced one political party that a blockchain for megaproject transparency was in order, but on Thursday the center-right Free Democrats (FDP) proved unable to persuade anyone else. FDP's call for a blockchain to hold “major state projects" accountable fell on deaf ears in the Bundestag after it failed to receive backing from even one other parliamentary group. If passed, the proposal would have urged the German government to host big-euro projects on an open blockchain. Citizens could then view audit trails and provide feedback with ease, the bill read. Such a tool could salvage the public's confidence in the wake of the Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) fiasco, FDP pointed out. BER is set to open to the public in October 2020 – nine years behind schedule and at least four billion euros over budget. Its history of cost overages and design failures have turned the hulking transit hub into a case study of mismanagement. “Citizens' trust in the control abilities and competence of government contractors suffered enormously these and other failures" FDP argued. "The medium-term goal must be to make tax-financed large-scale projects more transparent for taxpayers," they said. FDP offered an accessible blockchain as the solution. But the other members of Bundestag's Building committee did not agree. On Wednesday, they recommended parliament reject FDP's blockchain proposal outright. It died the next day on the Bundestag floor.。......

Dash is evolving into a decentralized cloud cryptocurrency
https://forex-images.instaforex.com/userfiles/20200918/btcn_5f64cefea6945.jpeg
Payments-focused cryptocurrency Dash is starting to release insights into its new platform, which enables data to be stored within the network in the form of decentralized cloud service. The forthcoming Dash Platform has been developed from longstanding ideas to evolve the cryptocurrency's functionalities — dating back to the announcement of “Dash Evolution" back in 2015. Dash Platform will incorporate four features: a Dash Drive, a decentralized API, or DAPI, a username layer, or DPNS, and the Dash platform protocol, or DPP. Speaking to Cointelegraph, Mark Mason outlined what exactly the company means by “turning Dash into a decentralized cloud." In Mason's words, “Dash Platform is an application development platform that leverages the Dash masternode network and blockchain by transforming the p2p network into a decentralized cloud." Clients will be able to integrate their applications to the Dash Platform by using the distributed, decentralized application programming interface — the DAPI. Meanwhile, the Dash Drive provides support by enabling these clients to send, store and retrieve application data as well as to query the blockchain through a simplified interface. “One key advantage of DAPI is that it provides developers with the same access and security of a full node, without the cost and maintenance overhead," Mason said. For its initial MVP release, the Dash Platform will work as a Database as a Service, or DBaaS. To this end, it will use data contracts with custom data structures defined for the applications that store their data on the Dash masternode network. This data will, in turn, be notarized via Dash's blockchain. Ryan Taylor, the CEO of Dash Core Group, has summarized the driving idea behind the platform as being to combine the “user experience of a centralized solution with the decentralized benefits of a permissionless network like Dash." The platform's cloud functionalities mean that all data on the network will sync across user devices — e.g. tablets, desktop and smartphones. New human-readable usernames, rather than alphanumeric cryptographic addresses, will be supported via the Dash Platform Name Service, or DPNS, layer. Platform users will be able to create usernames on the layer, “friend" other platform users and accept friend requests — as well as transact DASH using these usernames. Dash believes that moving away from complex cryptographic identifiers will spur more people to adopt cryptocurrency by incorporating familiar interfaces and processes into its decentralized system. As previously reported, cryptocurrency can already be transacted with usernames within a number of existing closed wallet ecosystems, though Dash claims that its service is distinct as the username layer operates natively to the blockchain.。......
