Investorideas.com - Bitcoin Might Test All-time High


October 27, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) Is Bitcoin in bubble territory? Certainly, the price pattern this year looks like an exponential one, at least locally, but there are also opposing views. In an article on CNBC, we read:

[William] Bernstein is a neurologist who began writing about investing in the 1990s, soon becoming a best-selling author and drawing the admiration of legends such as Vanguard's Jack Bogle for his clear and rational analysis. He is best known for books such as "The Intelligent Asset Allocator" and "The Four Pillars of Investing" that show independent investors how to manage their money for the long term. He is currently retired as a doctor, but co-principal at Efficient Frontier Advisors, a money management firm for the very wealthy.

"Bitcoin is not something I want to waste my time on," Bernstein told CNBC. "Unless [you are] an expert on blockchain technology and bitcoin, stay away. Don't invest in things [you] don't understand."

The growing remittance in developing countries, high cost of remittance across the border, and fluctuating monetary regulations are the major drivers for the growth of the cryptocurrency market. The growth of the cryptocurrency market is further propelled by the transparency and immutability of the distributed ledger technology and benefits such as faster transaction and reduction in total ownership cost. However, the uncertain regulations and standards pertaining to cryptocurrency restrain the growth of this market.

October 18, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) One company continues to invest in the blockchain industry by acquiring an ownership interest in a firm developing a payment system for the telecom industry.


Riot Blockchain Inc. (BIOP:NASDAQ) announced that it is acquiring a 52% ownership interest in TESS Inc., a company that is developing a blockchain-based payment system for wholesale telecom carriers.

According to Riot Blockchain, "TESS is a technology company whose current business is focused on developing a guaranteed payment system using a blockchain-based escrow service for wholesale telecom carriers. Immutable blockchain terms and protocols guarantee payment and provide an alternative to the traditionally written legal agreements where it is difficult to assess financial risk profiles. The TESS platform will provide a flexible and transparent ledger that is recorded securely on a blockchain."

"Riot Blockchain is committed to building the blockchain ecosystem."
Michael Beeghley, CEO of Riot Blockchain, said, "Riot Blockchain is committed to building the blockchain ecosystem. The telecom payment platform of TESS is a prime example of how blockchain-based technologies can be leveraged to disrupt established industries. I believe that Riot Blockchain is poised to take advantage of this revolution in digital transactions as we see increasing adoption of blockchain protocols in our everyday lives."

The CEO of TESS, Jeff Mason, stated, "Our affiliation with Riot Blockchain will give us better access to the capital markets in the United States, as well as the availability of additional senior management resources, all in aid of our ambitious business plans around blockchain."

A blockchain is a decentralized system that can store and relay information securely without the use of middlemen. The system is the backbone for trading digital currencies, but can be used in processing many types of transactions, including managing medical records and recording votes.

This strategic investment follows Riot Blockchains's announcement on Oct. 4 that it changed its name from Bioptix Inc. and shifted its focus to blockchain technology. Its first investment was in Coinsquare Ltd., a Canadian exchange for trading digital currencies.

Riot Blockchain is currently trading on NASDAQ under the ticker BIOP, but has reserved the ticker RIOT. CEO Beeghley noted, "Currently, we are the only NASDAQ listed company focused exclusively on blockchain technologies."

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - October 17, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) BTL GROUP LTD. (TSX VENTURE:BTL) ("BTL" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed patents on its enterprise blockchain platform Interbit™. Interbit is a third generation blockchain platform with unique 'connecting' capability developed by BTL after it became apparent that second generation blockchains would not scale to meet enterprise demands as the technology matures. BTL confirmed through pre-commercial and confidential beta testing that its Interbit platform consistently exceeds customers' requirements in many sectors, including finance and energy.

"Interbit now has the capacity to operate and inter-connect many thousands of Interbit blockchains per server in a secure, private, and scalable manner. We realized very quickly that single blockchain solutions such as current generation two offerings would not allow blockchain technology to fully realize its transformative capabilities in the years ahead - we needed Interbit to scale far beyond what already exists in the blockchain space. Our new capabilities clearly define what generation three blockchains are capable of," said Tom Thompson, CTO of BTL. "During our successful pilots we have proven Interbit's privacy and scalability capabilities, securing it as a recognized enterprise grade blockchain platform. Interbit has also been designed for ease of use by customers, allowing it to be integrated into existing IT infrastructure in a quick and simple manner, not seen before in our industry."

Investorideas.com - New #CryptoCurrency Index Tracks Booming Crypto Currency Marketplace

\\

Freely Available Index is the Benchmark for Crypto Currency Investors



ZUG, Switzerland - October 16, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) In the "Crypto Valley" of Zug, the world's capital of crypto currencies and blockchain, the Crypto Currency Index (CCI30) has been presented to the public. Comprised of the 30 crypto currencies with the biggest market capitalization, the CCI30 is the first index of its kind to track the booming crypto currency marketplace. Its constituent currencies represent 93% of the world's total crypto currencies market cap.

The mathematical models that power the index – think of it as an S&P 500 for crypto currencies – were created by a team of prizewinning mathematics PhDs, quantitative analysts and traders, led by Igor Rivin, Professor of Mathematics at Temple University, until recently Regius Professor of Mathematics at St. Andrews University, and Carlo Scevola, economist and investor, director of Hermes Asset Management.

"Keynesian economic policies have eroded the public's faith in 'fiat money' such as dollars and euros," said Scevola, who runs a financial advisory firm. "Crypto currencies are filling a void, and our index will help investors gain insights into this exploding marketplace."

Scevola continued: "This is the first crypto currencies index that can be used as an actual investment tool, not just an academic curiosity or a marketing gimmick. Despite our strong theoretical background, we didn't forget that we are first of all investors and traders, and as such we wanted and needed an index that has a practical use. It is set to be the benchmark for this sector, and it will be widely adopted by investment funds and ETFs."

GLASGOW, Scotland - October 13, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) A survey of over 200 board level UK executives has found that while over half of businesses sampled are planning Blockchain initiatives, less than 1 in 10 believe they have the required skill sets in place within their organisations. Another key finding from the survey - the MBN Blockchain Survey 2017 - is that more than 40 per cent of non-IT/data senior executives admit to not fully understanding blockchain technology.

The lack of regulation (23 per cent) is seen as the biggest barrier to the adoption of blockhain technology, while smart contracts (52 per cent), supply chain transformation (44 per cent) and IP protection (39 per cent) are the top-three non-fintech planned applications according to the UK plc sample. 90 per cent of CTOs surveyed believe Blockchain will improve customer trust, privacy and security, although 40 per cent think Blockchain will not become a mainstream enabler of business transformation for another 3-5 years.

Investorideas.com - #Blockchain in the Global Commercial Vehicle Industry - Forecast to 2025 - Research and Markets


DUBLIN - October 11, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) The "Blockchain in the Global Commercial Vehicle Industry, Forecast to 2025" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The increasing use of blockchain technology will go hand in hand with growing advances in the commercial vehicle industry, especially through digitisation and automation. Key trends such as digital transformation, rise in automation, modern logistics systems, and proliferation of financial technology (fintech) influencing trucking are expected to drive the adoption of blockchain technology in the commercial vehicle (CV) industry. Some of the key advantages of using blockchain in the commercial vehicle industry are added transparency on ownership, price, and processes. It would also accelerate payment, enhance security, and eliminate fraud along with eliminating middlemen, reducing paperwork, and streamlining the supply chain.

Blockchain's impact on the CV industry is expected to gradually increase in the coming years, especially after 2020. It is, however, largely dependent on the level of automation and proliferation of technology in the industry mandating support for these advances. Blockchain will radically simplify and accelerate the business operations of all key stakeholders involved in the trucking industry. It will also enable all key stakeholders involved across the logistics supply chain to interact on a common platform.

Blockchain has been implemented in certain pilot projects in the food supply chain industry, logistics industry led by Maersk and IBM on the Hyperledger platform, and for Toll Collection Systems (TCS) through a truck wallet system created by Blockchainfirst. Blockchain has the potential to completely transform fleet operations through efficient performance by offering sustainable benefits and added security. Truck fleets are expected to benefit considerably through blockchain solutions that allow for efficiency, security, and time and cost reductions across various areas such as leasing, insurance, service and maintenance, refuelling, parking, freight brokering, and cargo safety. The vehicle purchasing process for fleets using blockchain brings all the relevant stakeholders on a common platform, enabling them to share and view information in real time. Investing in blockchain is expected to smoothen fleet operations by improving overall operational efficiency and reducing costs.

The penetration of blockchain platforms in the industry is currently limited only to selected solution providers such as Hyperledger, BigchainDB, and Blockchainfirst engaged in vehicle tracking, recharging, and automated toll collection for trucks. By 2025, 10-15% of the entire CV industry transactions are expected to be on blockchain; which will push OEMs and suppliers to invest actively in the blockchain infrastructure in partnership with tech consortiums, financial institutions, and regulatory establishments. Suppliers will see great benefits being on the same blockchain platform as OEMs and final customers. This is expected to reduce the cost and time for spare parts and warranty issues as well as hasten recalls.

Investorideas.com - Bitcoin after Rebound

LIMERICK, Ireland - October 6, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) Bitcoin was spoken about at the Sohn Investment Conference. On CNBC we read: Dan Morehead, chairman of digital currency exchange Bitstamp, said bitcoin and other digital currencies will likely become assets serious investors will want in their portfolios.

"Bitcoin's essentially going to revolutionize currency, or money," Morehead said on Wednesday at the Sohn Investment Conference in San Francisco, which was attended by portfolio managers and asset allocators.

"If it does work, the upside is so high, it's a rational, expected thing to have in your portfolio," he said.

Congestion can allow #Blockchains to Finance their Infrastructure and is Vital to #Bitcoin, According to New Research from #ColumbiaBusinessSchool

Network congestion is driving user paid fees in #Bitcoin and other #blockchain based systems

Adequate network congestion is critical for sustainable long-run operation of the system

Simple design modifications to the current Bitcoin protocol such as smaller but more frequent blocks and dynamically adjusting throughput to control congestion would increase the overall efficiency of the system


NEW YORK - October 4, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) With its value more than tripling in price in the second quarter of 2017, Bitcoin has emerged as the most prominent cryptocurrency on the market. Yet, while its value is surging, so too are Bitcoin's customer grievances, as users of the payment system are experiencing huge amounts of network congestion.
Common wisdom would suggest that Bitcoin would factitively be working to reduce consumer frustration by decreasing network congestion, but new research from Columbia Business School posits that some congestion may in fact be necessary.
In their new research paper, Monopoly without a Monopolist: An Economic Analysis of the Bitcoin Payment System, authors Gur Huberman, Jacob D. Leshno and Ciamac Moallemi, all professors at Columbia Business School, assert that congestion allows blockchain technology to raise the necessary revenue to fund its computer infrastructure.
"Without sufficient congestion there is little incentive for users to pay transaction fees," said Moallemi. "Our results indicate that the relationship is quite sharp, unless users are forced to incur substantial congestion delays, the system cannot raise even small amounts of revenue."
In fact, the authors suggest that the absence of sufficient congestion could be disastrous for the Bitcoin system. Presently, the infrastructure of the system is funded through a combination of newly minted coins and user transaction fees. However, as the newly minted are phased out, in a few years only transaction fees will remain as a revenue source. Without sufficient congestion, users will pay almost no transaction fees, generating almost no revenue to fund the network of computers executing the digital currency transactions. The same applies to other applications of blockchain technology.
The researchers propose several alternative design suggestions to enhance the system's stability and ensure its profitability, including:
  • Creating smaller but more frequent transaction block sizes, counter to prevailing thinking;
  • Dynamically adjusting network throughput to maintain a target level of congestion
About the Research
The research analyzes the economics underlying the distributed blockchain system. The analysis identifies a relationship between congestion and transaction fees, and concludes that congestion is essential for raising revenue from users to fund the network infrastructure of cryptocurrencies.
The paper explains the distinction between the economic structures of the distributed Bitcoin system and traditional electronic payment systems, such as Fed Wire, Swift, Visa, and PayPal. As opposed to traditional systems, the Bitcoin system does not have a controlling owner who can set fees. Instead, the operation of the Bitcoin protocol is determined by a computer protocol that sets the rules for the system. This protocol must ensure the system is trusted, and that it is properly funded.

Newtown Partners Invests in #Blockchain Start-Up #Wala, To Solve Financial Exclusion Affecting 3.5bn People

Wala Secures Investment from Llew Claasen & Vinny Lingham's Venture Capital firm Ahead of a Planned Token Sale In October


San Francisco - October 4, 2017 (Investorideas.com newswire) Wala, a blockchain-powered financial services platform for the unbanked and underbanked, has today announced an equity investment from Newtown Partners, the venture capital firm founded by Llew Claasen and Vinny Lingham. Llew Claasen is the Managing Partner of Newtown Partners and also the Executive Director of the the Bitcoin Foundation. Vinny Lingham is best known as the Founder of mobile gift card company Gyft, sold to First Data in 2015 and more recently, Civic, a Silicon Valley-based startup that completed a $33m token sale for a digital identity management platform in July 2017. Newtown Partners previously assisted their portfolio company Augmentors, operating in the augmented reality space, to complete a very successful $1m token sale in February 2017, at the time the largest gaming token sale in the world. The new equity investment in Wala will enable the startup to deliver on the promise of zero-fee financial services for the 3.5bn consumers who are currently excluded from the formal financial system.
Wala is a platform that provides access to transactional banking, remittances, loans and insurance for the unbanked and underbanked. Wala works with best of breed specialist providers in each market they're operational in, including banks, to offer a full suite of financial services. Partners benefit from the reach and low cost access to previously unserviceable customers enabled by the Wala platform.
Wala has already grown its financial services community to 1 million consumers in over 100 countries. These local customer communities have been instrumental in testing prototypes of the Wala Financial Platform and demonstrating that digital technology can be used to effectively remove the key barriers to the adoption of financial services by the underbanked and underserved: access, cost and embedded economic incentives.
Wala founder and CEO Tricia Martinez commented: "Through the use of blockchain technology and tokenization, we have developed a platform that makes it possible to serve the financially excluded economically at scale. Our community's guidance has ensured that the Wala Financial Platform has been built by the people for the people."
The roll out of the Wala platform is initially planned for emerging markets in Africa, following the footprint of local banking services partners, before expanding globally.
"We are thrilled to be working with Newtown Partners," continued Martinez. "The depth and breadth of their expertise as both entrepreneurs and investors in technology, combined with their commitment to creating globally successful startups will be key to the future success of Wala. We are excited about taking the next steps in our journey with Llew & Vinny."
As part of that journey, Wala will be the launch partner for a new financial services utility token, Dala, which will be sold and issued in a crowdfunding token sale this October. Dala will support the operationalization and further development of scalable, blockchain-enabled financial platforms for developing markets around a common unit of account and microeconomic incentive structure to create strong network effects. The Dala token sale will look to crowdfund US$30M over a 4 week period and issue participants with their share of 300 million Dala utility tokens. The Dala token sale will also use the Civic app to provide identity verification services to backers.
Wala's blockchain-enabled platform will enable greater access to zero fee financial services to billions of consumers in emerging markets and enable everyone to become economically active, no matter where in the world they are. These are the kinds of big problems being addressed by bold innovations that we like to back" explained Llew Claasen, managing partner of Newtown Partners.
