Singapore’s GIC Contributed to Coinbase $300 Million Funding Round, Crypto-Related Money Laundering Reports Increased Tenfold in Japan Last Year, Thai SEC Adds 3 New Cryptos and Macron Advocates for Blockchain in Agriculture

Bloomberg reports that Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, Government Investment Corporation (GIC), was one of the investors that contributed to Coinbase’s $300 million financing round last year. The report notes the significance of a major investor like GIC, which has more than $100 billion of assets in over 40 countries, putting money into digital assets. The funding round gave Coinbase a valuation of $8 billion, and Bloomberg notes that the crypto exchange forecasts revenue of $1.3 billion for 2018.

There were over 7000 cases of suspected money laundering linked to cryptocurrency reported to authorities in Japan last year, according to a report from The Japan Times. This marks a tenfold increase from the 669 reported cases between April and December 2017, when authorities made it mandatory for crypto exchanges to report shady transactions. When all types of financial transactions are considered, however, there were 417,465 instances of money laundering reported to police in 2018, most of which involved banks and other financial institutions as opposed to crypto exchanges.

Thailand’s SEC has added three new cryptocurrencies to their list of approved coins for ICO investment and trading, according to an official statement. Previously Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP) and Stellar (XLM) were included, but the new announcement adds Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Litecoin (LTC) to the list.

Agri Digitale reports that French president Emmanuel Macron has called for the EU to implement blockchain technology in the agriculture industry to enhance product tracking. Quoting a loose translation:

"Let's do this in Europe, the vanguard of agricultural data by developing tools that will track every product from raw material production to packaging, and processing. The innovation is there and it must be used in the agricultural world. It must be fully used because it is at the service of shared excellence and it will serve the consumer."

Job recruitment site Hired reports that global demand for blockchain engineers is up 517 percent this year.

XRP Discrepancy with Coinbase Framework, SoFi Partners with Coinbase for Crypto Trading, Bahrain Announces Regulatory Framework and Japan’s Mizuho to Launch Digital Currency on March 1

The announcement yesterday of XRP’s inclusion onto the Coinbase Pro platform has met with some controversy. Blockchain newsletter Diar identified a discrepancy between Coinbase’s Digital Asset Framework, which requires that "the ownership stake retained by the team is a minority stake," and Ripple, whose team “holds nearly 60% of the supply in escrow with a release schedule.”

Speaking of Coinbase, CNBC reports that the crypto exchange giant has partnered with online finance startup SoFi to facilitate crypto trading on the latter’s platform in the second quarter of this year. Under the name SoFi Invest, customers will be able to monitor prices, trade cryptocurrencies and take advantage of "active" investing with the help of a broker and automated, or "robo" advising. SoFi CEO Anthony Noto said:

"Our target audience wants to see what the price of cryptocurrency is, and to buy it. They have a desire to do that and in many cases they already are."

An official statement from their central bank reveals that Bahrain has completed final rules regulating the crypto space. The legal framework covers licensing, governance, minimum capital, control environment, risk management, anti money-laundering, countering financing of terrorism, standards of business conduct, avoidance of conflicts of interest, reporting,cyber security for crypto-asset services, and supervision and enforcement standards. Khalid Hamad, the executive director of Banking Supervision said:

“We will continue to enhance our regulatory framework in order to keep pace with the innovations taking place in the major financial centres around the globe. The CBB’s introduction of the rules relating to crypto-assets is in line with its goal to develop a comprehensive rules for the FinTech eco-system supporting Bahrain’s position as a leading financial hub in the MENA region.”

Nikkei Asian Review reports that Japanese banking giant Mizuho Financial Group will launch a digital currency service on March 1. Known as the J-Coin, the megabank’s crypto will be pegged to the Yen. Mizuho will work with 60 other financial institutions in the country comprising 56 million user accounts with digital wallets that can store J-Coin.

XRP Trading Goes Live on Coinbase Pro, Swiss Bank Partners to Allow Crypto Trading, Ukraine Develops CBDC and Electroneum Creates $80 Android Phone that Pays Users in Crypto

Crypto exchange giant Coinbase yesterday launched XRP trading on the Coinbase Pro platform. The inclusion of XRP, currently the third largest crypto by market cap according to data from CoinMarketCap, has been long anticipated from Coinbase. XRP is not yet available to buy, sell or trade on any other Coinbase platforms, but a separate announcement will me made for them at a later date, according to the blog post.

Swiss bank giant Julius Baer has announced a partnership with crypto startup SEBA Crypto. The partnership will see Julius Baer offer a range of new services, including storage, transaction and investment solutions for digital assets. The partnership will come into effect once SEBA, founded in April 2018, is granted a banking and securities dealer licence from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). Peter Gerlach, Head of Markets at Julius Baer said:

“At Julius Baer, we are convinced that digital assets will become a legitimate sustainable asset class of an investor’s portfolio. The investment into SEBA as well as our strong partnership are proof of Julius Baer’s engagement in the area of digital assets and our dedication to make pioneering innovation available to the benefit of our clients.”

CCN reports that Ukraine has developed a central bank digital currency (CBDC). The E-Hryvnia – the digital version of the country’s official currency – has passed the pilot phase from the National Bank of Ukraine, who said that they would now investigate further uses for the token. The bank’s payment systems director Alexander Yablunivsky explained that the E-Hryvnia was not a cryptocurrency:

“We are not talking about cryptocurrency, we are talking about digital currency of the central bank. It can be implemented on both the centralized registry technology and the decentralized one. This is a completely separate issue, which follows from the target model chosen.”

Electroneum, a blockchain startup, has just introduced the M1, an Android phone that rewards users with cryptocurrency. According to the announcement, the phone, which only costs $80, was designed for people in developing countries. Through cloud mining, the M1 allows users to earn up to $3 of Electroneum’s native ETN token every month.
