Binance Launches Cash-to-Crypto Service in Australia, CoinMarketCap Announces Crypto Indices Listed with Major Exchanges, UK Parliament Sees Blockchain Tech Showcase and Avnet Collaborates with BitBay to Allow Crypto Purchases
Stocks discussed: (NYSE:ORCL) (NasdaqGS:AVT)

Binance has launched a cash-to-crypto service in Australia that allows users to purchase crypto at 1300 of the country’s newsagents. Known as Binance Lite Australia, the service enables users to order the desired amount of crypto through an online account, and have it deposited at the nearest newsagent to collect. Wei Zhou, Binance CFO, said:

“Binance Lite Australia further expands digital currency adoption by providing easier ways to buy bitcoin. We are excited to continue to roll out more fiat to crypto gateways around the world to support the growth of our industry. We firmly believe that more adoption will lead to more innovation and more economic opportunities.”

Coindesk reports that CoinMarketCap has announced two cryptocurrency indices to be featured on financial data feeds from Nasdaq Global Index Data Service (GIDS), Bloomberg Terminal, Thomson Reuters Eikon (Refinitiv) and Germany’s Börse Stuttgart, as well as its own data feed. One, the CMC Crypto 200 Index (CMC200), will include Bitcoin (BTC) and “90 percent of the global cryptocurrency market”. The second, CMC Crypto 200 ex BTC Index (CMC200EX), will track the crypto market without Bitcoin.

On Monday the U.K. Parliament was presented with a blockchain technology showcase, according to a report from CoinBeat. The showcase was put together by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Blockchain (APPG Blockchain), and featured major industry players IOTA, Oracle (NYSE:ORCL), Everledger and Lloyd’s of London. Blockchain research and project manager at Big Innovation Centre, Fernando Santiago, said:

“This is a pivotal moment for UK, which could define our future leadership in governance, commerce and competition.”

Yesterday, global tech solutions firm Avnet (NasdaqGS:AVT) announced a collaboration with crypto payments provider BitPay, that allows the former to accept payments for its products and services in Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Sonny Singh, chief commercial officer, BitPay, commented:

“As one of the largest global technology solution providers on the Fortune 500 list, Avnet is truly an innovative company that listens to the needs of their customers, as demonstrated by their decision to accept bitcoin payments. Not only is paying with bitcoin easier and faster than with credit cards and bank wires, it is less expensive and acceptance of it is growing. I predict Avnet will attract many new blockchain-focused customers from around the world that want to take advantage of paying with bitcoin.”

Biggest Swiss Online Retailer Allows Crypto Transactions, Japan Regulates Margin Trading on Crypto, IBM Tells Bloomberg of Bank Interest in Creating Coins, Dubai Gets Bitcoin ATM and Bithumb to Cut Up To Half of Staff
Stocks discussed: (NYSE:IBM) (NYSE:JPM)

Swiss online retailer, Digitec Galaxus, announced today that it will begin accepting cryptocurrency transactions effective immediately. The retailer, which is the largest in Switzerland, will accept payment in Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin SV (BSV), Ether (ETH), XRP, Binance Coin (BNB), Litecoin (LTC), Tron (TRX), NEO and OmiseGo (OMG) for transactions over CHF 200 ($200 USD). Oliver Herren, CIO and co-founder of Digitec Galaxus, said:

“Cryptocurrencies are fascinating and likely to become a relevant means of payment in e-commerce – we want to support this development. Of course I’m expecting all crypto millionaires in Switzerland to only buy from us in the future ;-)”

Nikkei Asian Review reports that Japan’s financial authorities have restricted cryptocurrency margin trading at  two to four times initial deposits. Furthermore, crypto exchanges that handle margin trading are required to register with authorities within 18 months of the new legislation, which will be implemented in April 2020.

Bloomberg reports that IBM (NYSE:IBM) claims that at least two major U.S. banks are thinking about following JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) in launching their own crypto. Jesse Lund, IBM’s vice president of blockchain, told Bloomberg:

“We have received interest on the heels of JPM Coin,” and that the two other banks, which he declined to name “reached out to us after that announcement.”

He went on to say:

“There’s a new revenue opportunity for banks. Banks are now starting to catch the buzz.”

CCN reports that Dubai has landed its first crypto-cash ATM. The kiosk is fully functional, allowing users to purchase cryptocurrencies for cash. It is located in the Rixos Premium, a 5-star hotel in the Jumeirah Beach Residence.

Major South Korean crypto exchange Bithumb has revealed plans to cut its staff by up to 50 percent, according to a report from CoinDesk. This would reduce the current staff of 310 to around 150. An official from Bithumb told CoinDesk:

“Voluntary retirement is part of our support program for former employees and is intended to provide assistance and training for job placement. Apart from that, [Bithumb’s] trading volume has decreased compared to the previous year, [so] we are trying to provide internal measures. We will continue to add necessary personnel for various new businesses.”

BTC Breaks $4K Over Weekend Rally, South Korean Messaging App Kakao to Integrate Crypto Wallet, Citigroup Scraps Crypto Coin and Startup 2gether Announces Prepaid Visa That Allows Crypto Transactions
Stocks discussed: (NYSE:C)

The crypto market gained some steam over the weekend. According to data from CoinMarketCap, it peaked at $141.5 billion on Friday, and has settled at a market cap of $139.5 billion at press time. Particularly impressive was the rally by Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which began the weekend trading for about $140 and at press time is trading for $163. Meanwhile, the flagship cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC) sits at about a $71 billion market cap and is trading for $4030 at press time, having cleared the elusive support level on Friday.

fnnews, a South Korean outlet, reports that Korean messaging app Kakao, which boasts some 44 million users, is integrating a password-protected crypto wallet to its service. In a statement to CCN, Heslin Kim, South Korea-based CEO of BlockchainROK, said of the news:

Kakao is representative of South Korea, a country with over 55 million people. It embodies the fast paced, technology driven lifestyle that Koreans adopt so readily. It’s an app so deeply attached to what it means to be Korean.

The fact that one of the most widely adopted apps, with over 95% market share, is publicly promoting and spreading blockchain/crypto is tremendous for mainstream adoption. Connect the dots with the market share and total population. With Samsung’s S10 and now Kakao’s wallet we can continuously expect Korea to be at the forefront of the DLT disruption.

CoinDesk reports that Citigroup’s (NYSE:C) proposed cryptocurrency, Citicoin, which was initially announced four years ago, has been cancelled. The company has decided to put the work and research that was invested in the project and instead use it to improve existing systems. Gulru Atak, global head of innovation for treasury and trade solutions, and chief of Citigroup’s innovation lab, told the outlet:

“Based on our learnings from that experiment we actually decided to make meaningful improvements in the existing rails by leveraging the payments ecosystem and within that ecosystem, we are considering the fintechs as well or the regulators around the world as well, including SWIFT.”

According to an official announcement, banking startup 2gether is launching a prepaid Visa card in Europe that allows users to make transactions using cryptocurrencies. Users can also buy, sell and trade the seven supported cryptos, which include: Ether (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), XRP, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), EOS, Stellar (XLM), and Litecoin (LTC). An excerpt from the press release reads:

2gether’s prepaid Visa debit card allows consumers to spend crypto as easily as if they were euros anywhere, instantly without fees. Whether it be shopping at your favorite boutique or taking a friend out for dinner, users simply swipe their 2gether card and it seamlessly integrates cryptocurrency into the everyday lives of its customers, essentially paying with crypto without even realizing it.
