#CryptoCorner; Former OKEx CEO Defers to Huobi, Fundstrat #Crypto Analyst Predicts 25K for #Bitcoin by 2019




Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC – May 21, 2018 -  Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news reports on what’s driving the cryptocurrency markets with today’s edition of Crypto Corner.




Former OKEx CEO Defers to Huobi, Fundstrat Crypto Analyst Predicts 25K for Bitcoin by 2019 but Vanguard Economist Sees ‘Decent Probability that its Price Goes to Zero’

Chris Lee, who recently resigned as CEO of OKEx, has joined rival crypto exchange Huobi Group. Lee will be coming on as Board Secretary and VP of Global Business Development according to a press release from Huobi today. Lee praised his new employer and speculated that they could one day rival a business like Goldman Sachs.

"I am a big believer in blockchain technology and view exchanges as the heart of the industry. Huobi Group has built a strong foundation, from the popularity of its exchange to the investments the company has made in the global blockchain ecosystem. The combination of the team's technical expertise with industry-leading marketing and operational abilities positions it to become the Goldman Sachs of this new era in finance. If done properly, Huobi may even be bigger than Goldman one day."

Thomas Lee, Fundstrat Global Advisors’ head of research, expects Bitcoin to rise to $25000 USD by the end of 2018, according to a story in Bloomberg. This is in spite of Lee’s prediction on May 7 that Bitcoin would rally in response to the Consensus conference last week. Explaining his prediction about the conference on Friday, Lee said:

“Given conferences like Consensus are chances for the community to gather in a centralized place and meet constituents new to the community (growth in attendance), it seems natural that the combination of ‘sanity check’ (all is OK and progress is happening) plus ‘new interest’ (incremental attendance) should strengthen the crypto-community’s conviction,” he wrote. “And coupled with growth in incremental constituents, should have aided crypto-currency prices.”

Conversely, Vanguard’s Chief Economist cast a very different long term prediction for Bitcoin on a recent ETF.com op-ed. Davis expressed enthusiasm for blockchain technology in general, but said Bitcoin itself could crash utterly.

“I’m enthusiastic about the blockchain technology that makes bitcoin possible. In fact, Vanguard is using such technology. As for bitcoin the currency? I see a decent probability that its price goes to zero.”

#CryptoCorner; #Coincheck Readies for Comeback and Expansion, TASE Implements #Blockchain and JPMorgan Names New ‘Head of Crypto Assets Strategy’




Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC – May 18,, 2018 -  Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news reports on what’s driving the cryptocurrency markets with today’s edition of Crypto Corner.



Coincheck Readies for Comeback and Expansion, TASE Implements Blockchain and JPMorgan Names New ‘Head of Crypto Assets Strategy’

Coincheck, the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange that was subject to a $500 million USD hack in January, is planning to expand to the U.S. Bloomberg reports that the company’s new owners, Monex Inc., expect to restore its credibility in the coming weeks.

“Monex Chief Executive Officer Oki Matsumoto said he expects the exchange to secure an official license in Japan next month. He’s also planning to bring Coincheck’s platform to America.”

On the decision to get involved in the American market, Matsumoto said the U.S. confers advantages when it comes to courting investors.

““Japan may seem like it’s one step ahead in crypto, but in terms of deciding what’s a security or a token and attracting institutional investors, the U.S. and Europe are moving ahead,” he said in an interview from his 25th floor office in central Tokyo.”

Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) has developed a blockchain securities lending platform according to a recent press release. Citing the lack of a central securities lending platform in Israel, the piece outlines the rationale for the project and the benefits of the blockchain:

“The purpose of this project is to create one central platform that will transform the Securities Lending market in Israel by enabling direct lending among all the major financial instruments.  The platform will function as a one-stop-shop for all securities lending activities, permitting access to larger securities volumes within shorter time frames, even operating in shorter-term positions.”

“The use of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) as the basis of this new trading platform will harness some of the blockchain’s primary advantages and features, such as direct peer-to-peer transactions, Smart Contract, and enhanced security through immutability.  All of these are expected to benefit TASE, its custodians and their clients by reducing costs, increasing security and enabling the market to exploit its full potential.”

JPMorgan have named 29-year old Oliver Harris as their head of crypto assets strategy, according to a report at Business Insider. Harris, based in London, was formerly in charge of JPMorgan’s In Residence programme, which “identifies and partners with promising fintech startups.” According to the report, Harris will be scouting new crypto endeavors for JPMorgan and implementing blockchain to payment systems.

“Harris will be identifying and spearheading new crypto projects for the bank, rather than actively trading cryptocurrencies. Financial News reports that Harris will look at crypto custody services and how blockchain could work in JPMorgan’s payments business.”

#CryptoCorner:  No Price Bump for #Bitcoin Following Consensus Conference, Ukraine to Legislate for #Crypto and Research Reveals Bitcoin Mining Could Consume 0.5% of World’s Electricity by 2019



Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC – May 17, 2018 -  Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news reports on what’s driving the cryptocurrency markets with today’s edition of Crypto Corner.



No Price Bump for Bitcoin Following Consensus Conference, Ukraine to Legislate for Crypto and Research Reveals Bitcoin Mining Could Consume 0.5% of World’s Electricity by 2019

The world’s largest Bitcoin conference, Consensus 2018, ended yesterday, but failed to result in the price rally that many expected. Bitcoin (BTC) was trading as high as $8880 USD on May 14, the first day of Consensus, but is today trading at about $8340 USD according to CoinMarketCap.

The Consensus conference attracted 8500 attendees according to Forbes. Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey gave the headline talk yesterday, in which he championed cryptocurrency without endorsing bitcoin specifically.

"I'm just approaching with the principle that the Internet deserves a native currency. It will have a native currency. I don't know if it will be Bitcoin."

Ukrainian Member of Parliament Oleksiy Mushak posted on Facebook that Ukraine is drafting legislation for cryptocurrencies. The post linked to a Google Document which people were  encouraged to edit. Mushak said in a rough translation:

“Below drafts a bill on general regulation of this market.This is the work of many people and meetings.There are still many nuances left.The final version will be ready in two weeks.Please comment and edit.Thoughts from market practitioners are especially important.”

According to Science Daily, Bitcoin mining is estimated to consume half a percent of the world’s electricity by the end of the year. The piece cites research done in the journal Joule by “financial economist and blockchain specialist Alex De Vries:

“His estimates, based in economics, put the minimum current usage of the Bitcoin network at 2.55 gigawatts, which means it uses almost as much electricity as Ireland. A single transaction uses as much electricity as an average household in the Netherlands uses in a month. By the end of this year, he predicts the network could be using as much as 7.7 gigawatts -- as much as Austria and half of a percent of the world's total consumption. "To me, half a percent is already quite shocking. It's an extreme difference compared to the regular financial system, and this increasing electricity demand is definitely not going to help us reach our climate goals," he says. If the price of Bitcoin continues to increase the way some experts have predicted, de Vries believes the network could someday consume 5% of the world's electricity. "That would be quite bad."”
