Stocks discussed: (NasdaqGS:FB)

 

The Libra Association, the independent member organization overseeing the Libra digital currency project from Facebook (NasdaqGS:FB), has announced the appointment of Ian Jenkins as the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Risk Officer of Libra Networks. Jenkins boasts three decades of financial services experience. He commented:

 

“I am excited to join the Libra Networks leadership team at a time when innovation in the financial sector has the potential to empower billions of people worldwide. The Libra project is poised to transform the industry and I am looking forward to being part of this team.”

 

James Emmett, Libra Networks Managing Director, who himself just joined Libra last month, said of the new hire:

 

"Ian’s deep expertise in global finance, risk and strategy will be crucial in bringing the Libra vision to life. I look forward to working with Ian as we move forward to a more operational phase of the project."

 

The Central Bank of the Bahamas (CBOB), which plans to roll out its “Sand Dollar” digital currency on October 20, intends global usage for it as well, according to a report from local outlet, The Nassau Guardian. The CBOB’s assistant manager of electronic solutions, Bobby Chen, speaking at a Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers’ Confederation virtual presentation for businesses ahead of the Sand Dollar rollout, said:

 

“At the moment, it is currently only used in a domestic setting, but eventually we are working on a solution that will make it interoperable with other global currencies.”

 

The CBOB’s Head of Banking, Cleopatra Davis, expanded on this:

 

“Also, the need to be interoperable with other wallets. That’s a key strategy that we’re working on as well as the RTGS/ACH integration, which would allow the movement of Sand Dollar to and from your bank account, which would then convert to fiat as it hit your bank account.”

 

Russia’s central bank has confirmed plans to launch limited digital ruble pilots in the first half of 2021 after banks including: “MKB, PSB, Zenit, Dom.RF and the Crimean RNKB,” have expressed interest in participating, according to a report from local outlet Izvestia. Anatoly Aksakov, head of the State Duma committee on the financial market, told the publication that “technologically and legally, everything is ready for a pilot with digital currency in Russia,” but piloting will have to wait until after “the law on digital financial assets will enter into force on January 1, 2021.”

Stocks discussed: (OTC:GBTC) (NasdaqGS:EBON) (TSXV:BITF)

 

Grayscale Investments released its Digital Asset Investment Report for Q3 2020, revealing that the company raised a record $1.05 billion in new investments in the quarter. According to the press release, “investment into the Grayscale family of products has surpassed $2.4 billion, more than double the $1.2 billion cumulative inflow into the products from 2013-2019.” Attracting the most investment in the quarter was the company’s Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (OTC:GBTC), which saw Q3 inflows of $719.3 million, and “has seen its assets under management (AUM) surge from $1.9 billion to $4.7 billion YTD.

 

Bitcoin mining machine producer Ebang International Holdings Inc. (NasdaqGS:EBON) has entered into an Expression of Interest Tender Letter to acquire a New Zealand-based financial company to establish a local digital asset financial service platform. Ebang’s Chairman and CEO, Dong Hu, explained:

 

“We remain steadfast in executing our strategies to launch comprehensive blockchain-enabled financial business[es] to capture the growth opportunity along the value chain of the blockchain industry. Leveraging our longstanding expertise in the blockchain technology and our recent expansions to Singapore, Canada and New Zealand, we have taken a giant stride toward our goal to build a fully-licensed, Internet-based trading platform that provides professional, convenient and innovative trading services.”

 

Bitfarms Ltd. (TSXV:BITF) has entered into an equipment lease with digital asset liquidity provider BlockFills for 1,000 WhatsMiner M31S miners to be delivered and installed by the end of November 2020. Bitfarms Interim CEO, Emiliano Grodzki, commented:

 

"Bitfarms continues to solidify its position as the industry leader in terms of operational hash rate, efficiency, and financial performance. The new equipment will fully utilize the installed infrastructure at our five high-powered data centers and will immediately be accretive to our financial performance. Unlike many of our competitors, Bitfarms operates all its computing power through its own facilities with wholesale energy prices avoiding costly hosting arrangements that may be terminated by the host with short customary notice periods. This positions Bitfarms uniquely as a sustainable and long-term mining operation."

Stocks discussed: (NYSE:SQ) (NYSE:CP) (TSX:HUT) (OTC:ETHE) (OTC:GBTC)

 

Bitcoin (BTC) has continued its rally from last week – the beginning of which was widely attributed to news that Square (NYSE:SQ) had purchased $50 million worth of Bitcoin – and has seen an uptick this morning to a present trading price of about $11,470, according to data from CoinMarketCap. Bitcoin had entered the rally with a trading price of around $10,600 last Thursday.

 

Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (NYSE:CP) has recently joined blockchain-based shipping platform TradeLens. According to the press release, the TradeLens open-API platform “will help CP intermodal shippers create, amend and share documents with other supply chain participants, including consignees, beneficial cargo owners, customs agencies, dray operators and steamship lines.” Mike Redeker, CP’s Vice-President and Chief Information Officer, commented:

 

"CP is pleased to join TradeLens as part of its efforts to improve the customer experience through technological innovation. Global shipping is a profoundly complex business and TradeLens is improving the information-sharing processes that support the industry. CP is always innovating for the benefit of its customers, and joining TradeLens is an example of that innovation."

 

Hut 8 Mining Corp. (TSX:HUT) has announced that it is the first TSX listed issuer to complete the TSX Sandbox program, coming just one year after it became the first issuer to be listed to the TSX via the TSX Sandbox. The company’s Interim CEO, Jimmy Vaiopoulos, said:

 

"We're excited to work alongside the TSX to find innovative paths forward in the public markets for emerging industries such as the blockchain and bitcoin mining space. Being listed on the TSX holds Hut 8 to the highest standard of governance and disclosure requirements which directly benefits our investors."

 

Digital currency asset manager Grayscale Investments has reported that its Grayscale Ethereum Trust (OTC:ETHE) has become a reporting company for the U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC). This follows news from January this year, that the company’s bitcoin trust, Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (OTC:GBTC), had become an SEC reporting company. A report from CoinDesk quotes Grayscale's managing director, Michael Sonnenshein on the news:

 

"We're seeing interest from investors who have become more comfortable with digital currencies through bitcoin exposure, and are now looking at how else they can diversify within the asset class.”
