February 21 Crypto Corner

Samsung Galaxy S10 Features Secure Storage for Private Blockchain Keys, Elon Musk Praises Satoshi Nakamoto, Bahrain Courts Blockchain Companies and Ohio County Auditors Consider Blockchain for Real Estate Transactions
Stocks discussed: (KSE:005930) (NasdaqGS:TSLA)

Samsung (KSE:005930) has announced that their new Galaxy S10 line of smartphones boasts a security feature to “secure storage backed by hardware, which houses your private keys for blockchain-enabled mobile services”. There is speculation that the Galaxy S10 will also feature a native crypto wallet, but rumours are as of yet unconfirmed. CCN quotes IT expert Han Ho-hyeon, who claims that the phone’s Exynos 9820 chip with PUF technology could indicate potential development of a crypto wallet.

“PUF technology has been added to the Exynos 9820 revealed by Samsung Electronics last year and if the Galaxy S10 features a blockchain-based crypto wallet, the probability of Samsung Electronics utilizing the PUF is very high.”

Tesla (NasdaqGS:TSLA) and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk appeared on the Feb 19 episode Ark Invest podcast, on which he praised crypto”

"Paper money is going away and cryptocurrency is a far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper."

After garnering attention for his comments, Musk has continued discussing crypto in a series of subsequent tweets. Replying to a story about his enthusiasm for crypto on the podcast, Musk tweeted:

That said, I still only own 0.25 BTC, which a friend sent me several years ago. Don’t have any crypto holdings.”

And in reply to a user who implied that Musk was fabled Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, Musk said:

“Whoever owns the early BTC deserves a Nobel prize in delayed gratification”

Bloomberg reports that Bahrain is looking to encourage blockchain-related business. Though Bahrain has not yet issued a regulatory framework for crypto, business manager at Bahrain’s Economic Development Board, Dalal Buhejji, said the country’s central bank allows companies "to test their solution on a limited number of users, with a limited number of transactions”. Additionally, blockchain-powered IPO platform SprinkleXchange has received approval to operate in the country, along with 28 other companies.

SafeChain reports that the County Auditors’ Association of Ohio (CAAO) is considering a real estate transaction system based on blockchain tech. CAAO President and Stark County Auditor Alan Harold said:

“County Auditors are first and foremost interested in delivering efficient and competent service to Ohio taxpayers and frequently discuss ways to improve county services. In recognition of the State of Ohio’s overall initiatives to modernize government, the goal of this working group is to consider how County Auditors can be forward thinking to improve the taxpayer experience in conveying and transferring real property.  For these types of projects to be successful and widely adopted, they require collaboration; County Auditors are eager to roll up our sleeves as a group early on.”

#Blockchain Stocks Trending Again Thanks to #JPMCoin; (CSE: $LLT.C) (OTC: $LLNKF) (TSXV: $HIVE.V) (OTCQX: $HVBTF) (TSXV: $GLXY.V) (NASDAQ: $RIOT)


#Blockchain Stocks Trending Again Thanks to #JPMCoin; (CSE: $LLT.C) (OTC: $LLNKF) (TSXV: $HIVE.V) (OTCQX: $HVBTF) (TSXV: $GLXY.V) (NASDAQ: $RIOT)


Point Roberts WA, Delta BC – February 21, 2019 - Investorideas.com, a global investor news source covering blockchain and cryptocurrency issues a special edition of the Crypto Corner looking at the recent run in cryptocurrencies and blockchain stocks following recent news of the  JPM Coin.

With a heart-stopping 180o turn on February 14th, J.P. Morgan  became the first US bank to create and successfully test a digital coin representing a fiat currency. The JPM Coin will use blockchain-based technology, enabling the instantaneous transfer of payments between institutional accounts.


Adding fuel to the fire, in a recent interview at the IBM Think 2019 conference, Jesse Lund (VP of Blockchain and Digital Currencies for IBM) said IBM has several “letters of intent” with major banks to release digital currencies.

From finance to supply chain, healthcare, real estate, smart contracts, IoT and more, the applications for blockchain ledger technology seem endless.

Blockchaintechnologies.com recently reported, “Huge tech companies like IBM have already seen the potential for blockchain supply chain management and have web 3.0 solutions in development or pilot program stages.”

Litelink Technologies Inc. (CSE: LLT) (OTC: LLNKF) is also aiming to take logistics to a whole new level. “Our platforms use the power of blockchain, artificial intelligence and the rich features in the Amazon Cloud to change the way the world works in logistics, digital wallets & payment solutions.”

Litelink’s Shift product uses blockchain to track shipments, handle invoicing, payments and reviews and ratings.  For audit and dispute resolution, their blockchain tech records the time and location of arrival at the location/gate and dock via GPS location data, records the receipt of the signed BOL, as well as runs AI algorithms to determine whether there are any exception conditions present at delivery. The proprietary Adversarial Permissioned Blockchain platform, based on JP Morgan’s platform, can also provide an early warning for potential future disputes, allowing the parties to proactively seek solutions rather than pointing fingers later.

The company recently announced an update on the progress and planned the rollout of its 1SHIFT Logistics platform.

Hive Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV:HIVE.V) (OTCQX:HVBTF) just announced up-listing to the OTCQX. "Upgrading to the OTCQX is an important event for the Company," said Frank Holmes, Interim Executive Chairman. "The OTCQX equips HIVE with better liquidity and exposure for existing and future US investors as we continue our long-term strategy to enhance shareholder value. HIVE is an industry leader among publicly traded blockchain infrastructure companies and trading on OTCQX in the US provides investors with an opportunity to participate in the long-term potential of blockchain and to invest in a stock that is highly correlated to the price movements of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum." 


Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd. (TSXV: GLXY), a diversified asset management firm dedicated to the digital assets and blockchain technology industry recently reported preliminary assets under management of $416.5 million as of January 31, 2019, inclusive of committed capital in a closed-end vehicle.

The Company says, “Our mission is to stand behind companies that we believe will be successful in helping to accelerate and promote the institutional adoption of blockchain technology and digital assets.”

Riot Blockchain, Inc. (NasdaqCM:RIOT), a company that says its focus is on Bitcoin and general blockchain technology has been one of the biggest movers in the recent run.  Trying to regain investor confidence, earlier this month the company announced its Board of Directors is implementing leadership and governance structure changes. Jeff McGonegal is being named Chief Executive Officer, replacing departing Chris Ensey, who had joined the Company in January 2018 as its Chief Operating Officer and had been appointed interim Chief Executive Officer, in September 2018. Jeffrey Vormittag, Chief Operating Officer of the Company's subsidiary, Riot Blockchain Canada Inc. will also be leaving the company.

“Riot Blockchain's Board of Directors is very focused on delivering value for the Company's shareholders and believes that a new streamlined leadership structure is critical to achieving success, while also achieving cost reductions.”

It appears the recent complacency in the sector has shifted to a new sense of optimism and for now, the trend is the friend in blockchain stocks.

February 20 Crypto Corner

Blockchain Stocks Rise Alongside Crypto Rally, BitGo Announces Digital Asset Insurance Through Lloyd’s, SEC Reviewing Two Different Bitcoin ETFs and Wyoming Passes Three Crypto Bills
Stocks discussed: (NasdaqCM:NXTD) (TSXV:HIVE) (NasdaqCM:MARA) (NasdaqCM:RIOT)

In tandem with yesterday’s rally in the crypto market, many crypto and blockchain stocks showed a similar surge, exhibiting higher prices and above average trading volumes. NXT-ID, Inc. (NasdaqCM:NXTD) had grown 13.3 percent, reaching a trading price of $1.32 and a volume of nearly 1.5 million when markets closed. Hive Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV:HIVE) grew 19.51 percent, reaching a trading price of $0.08 and a volume of nearly 3.5 million. Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (NasdaqCM:MARA) grew 36.43 percent, reaching $0.73 per share and a volume of 5.4 million. And Riot Blockchain, Inc. (NasdaqCM:RIOT) grew 34.82 percent, reaching a trading price of $3.33 and a volume of 20 million when markets closed. Riot has continued its growth into this morning with a trading price of $3.86 at press time.

Digital financial services provider, BitGo, has announced that it will offer comprehensive insurance protections for cryptos and digital assets through Lloyd’s of London. The press release indicates that assets held by BitGo, Inc. or BitGo Trust Company will be insured through Lloyd’s for up to $100 million USD. BitGo CEO Mike Belshe said:

“This is the most complete insurance offering in the industry. It is not always easy for some clients to understand under what circumstances their investments are insured and to what extent their loss would be covered. We are changing that by being more transparent than any other company about the terms of our coverage. Transparency and accuracy is essential for building trust in the market.”

CoinDesk reports that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is currently reviewing two different Bitcoin ETF proposals. The VanEck/SolidX proposal filed with Cboe BZX Exchange and a proposal from Bitwise Asset Management with NYSE Arca are both being considered. Matt Hougan, Bitwise global head of research told CoinDesk:

“A little more than year ago, we didn’t have futures. A year ago we didn’t have nearly as many firms making markets. A few months ago, you didn’t have folks like Fidelity announced in the space. It’s evolving really, really quickly.”

The U.S. state of Wyoming has passed three separate bills relating to blockchain and crypto in the past week. Bill SF0125, signed yesterday, classifies digital assets within existing property laws and clarifies how financial institutions can work with crypto. Additionally, passed on Friday, Bill HB0185 deals with the issuance of tokens while Bill HB0074 addresses the role of banks in the crypto space.
