The Libra Association, an independent member organization for Facebook’s (NasdaqGS:FB) Libra project, welcomed crypto investment firm Blockchain Capital as its newest member today. Dante Disparte, Vice Chairman and head of policy and communications for the Libra Association, commented:

 

"As a member of the Libra Association, Blockchain Capital brings deep industry insight and a dynamic network of supporters as we work on building a blockchain-based payment system that supports responsible financial services innovation.”

Yesterday, the Libra Association announced that it had appointed James Emmett as the Managing Director of its operating company subsidiary, Libra Networks LLC. Emmett, who previously served as CEO of banking giant HSBC (NYSE:HSBC), commented:

 

“As someone who is passionate about the opportunities for financial services and technology to make a real difference, I am delighted to be joining Libra Networks with a mission to enhance financial innovation and inclusion and to deliver the operationalization of the network.”

 

Hut 8 Mining Corp. (TSX:HUT) has received its planned 1,000 M31S and 1,000 M31S+ machines on-site at its Medicine Hat facility, which together will have an output of 154 PH/s using approximately 6.7MW of power. Jimmy Vaiopoulos, the company’s Interim CEO, said:

 

"With the recent press releases over the last six weeks including this new equipment being installed, the transfer of Clarke chips to Medicine Hat completed, and the transfer of management of both sites finalized, Hut 8 has increased its hash rate while lowering its cost to mine bitcoin, thereby strengthening its gross mining margins. Every dollar and bitcoin counts in the mining sector as we continue to upgrade our ASIC chips and strive to be one of the industry's lowest cost miners."

 

Crypto payments platform Wirex has announced the launch of its new multicurrency Wirex Card, supported by Mastercard (NYSE:MA). According to the press release, the card will be  “linked to 19 secure crypto and traditional currency accounts in the Wirex app,” allowing cardholders to “seamlessly spend multiple fiat and cryptocurrencies in day-to-day life without exchanging or offboarding.”

Coinciding with this, Bakkt, the digital assets arm of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE:ICE), has reached its highest trading volume of Bitcoin Futures today. The company tweeted:

 

Another record day in the books for our physically delivered futures: 15,955 Bakkt Bitcoin Futures were traded today, representing over $200M of volume and a 36% increase from our previous all-time high

 

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV:HIVE) has reported its 2020 financial results. Some highlights include an income from digital currency mining of $29.2 million, gross mining margin of $8.5 million, and 2,051 Bitcoin mined. Frank Holmes, Interim Executive Chairman of HIVE, commented:

 

"Going forward, our focus is on improving the efficiency and profitability across our mining operations by optimizing our cryptocurrency mining output, continuing to lower our direct mining operations cost structure, and maximizing our existing electrical and infrastructure capacity including with new mining equipment in existing facilities to leverage our fixed cost base and improve future mining margins.”

 

Blockchain technology search, risk-scoring and data analytics solutions developer Blockchain Intelligence Group (BIG), a subsidiary of BIGG Digital Assets Inc. (CSE:BIGG), has announced the launch of Ripple (XRP) and Stellar (XLM) as part of BitRank Verified risk scoring service. According to the press release, “BitRankVerified® provides financial organizations with the ability to get a risk score on an address and/or transaction allowing for the quick risk assessment of whether funds have been involved in nefarious activity.” BIG’s President, Lance Morginn, commented:

 

“Adding the Ripple and Stellar blockchains to BitRank Verified® further enhances the ability of any organization involved in crypto compliance and investigations to perform their duties.

Bloomberg reports that the central bank of The Bahamas is debuting its “Sand Dollar” e-currency nationwide in October, making it the first country to have launched its own digital currency. Chaozhen Chen, the assistant manager of eSolutions at the Central Bank of The Bahamas, commented:

 

“A lot of residents in those more remote islands don’t have access to digital payment infrastructure or banking infrastructure. We really had to customize the effort and the solution to what we need as a sovereign nation.”

Stocks discussed: (CSE:NC) (TSXV:BITF) (NasdaqGS:AAPL)

 

Bitcoin (BTC) appears to be on the move, having just this morning hit a trading price of around $10,650, the highest achieved since September 3, according to data from CoinMarketCap.

 

Crypto payments firm NetCents Technology Inc. (CSE:NC) has announced that it exceeded $5 million dollars in transactions through its NetCents platform in August, making for a 25 percent increase over July. The company’s founder and CEO, Clayton Moore, said:

 

"We believe that this record growth is not only a validation of our sales and marketing strategy with a focus on B2B merchants, but is a strong indication that we are fast becoming the payment platform of choice for cryptocurrency. Our rapid growth coupled with our product advancements indicate that 2020 will be an exceptional year. I'm thrilled to continue building the future of cryptocurrency payments with our team."

 

Bitfarms Ltd. (TSXV:BITF) has announced that the 1,000 new generation miners it reported leasing on August 20, are now installed and fully operational. These WhatsMiner 31S mining rigs are generating approximately 82 petahash per second of computing power, bringing the company’s overall mining efficiency to approximately 17.7 petahash per MW. According to the press release, Bitfarms now “plans to continue to upgrade as it secures additional equipment lease financing and will provide further operational updates as they occur.”

 

The CEO of US crypto exchange giant Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, was critical of Apple (NasdaqGS:AAPL) in a recent twitter thread, claiming that the latter’s app store is preventing certain functionalities. Armstrong tweeted:

 

Here is the issue. Apple has told us we cannot add the following functionality in our iOS apps: (1) the ability to earn money using cryptocurrency and (2) the ability to access decentralized finance apps (sometimes called DeFi apps or Dapps).

 

Why would Apple want to prevent people from earning money during a recession? They seem to not be ok with it, if it uses cryptocurrency. I'm not sure why. This is what our Coinbase Earn product does.

 

Elsewhere in the thread, Armstrong indicates that Coinbase has “tried discussing this through regular channels with Apple,” but that they “seem to be at a dead end.”
