Stocks discussed: (NasdaqGS:PYPL)

 

Bitcoin (BTC) continues to rise, having broken through past a trading price of $19,000 early on Tuesday, and at present is trading for about $19,230, according to data from CoinMarketCap. This, of course, brings Bitcoin very close to its all-time high, reached on December 17, 2017, and which has been measured variously from around $19,600 to as high as roughly $20,050. Peter Smith, co-founder and CEO of Blockchain.com, commented on the possible impact of a new all-time high to CoinDesk:

 

“We could see massive movements in the bitcoin price over Thanksgiving. A new all-time-high won’t be a surprise to some who’ve seen it as a ‘not if, but when’ scenario. It’s an inevitability, but the world will take notice, and that’s good for adoption.”

 

Concurrent with Bitcoin’s rally in trading price, Cointelegraph reports that crypto exchange giant Binance is witnessing its trading volume hit an all-time high of $37 billion in the past 24 hours. This represents an increase of 40.5 percent in the same 24-hour period. Also, the company’s Bitcoin futures open interest reached an all-time high of $1.17 billion, according to data from crypto analytics site Glassnode.

 

Financial news outlet the Wall Street Reporter recently published some industry leader commentary regarding digital payments. Among those included in the piece was Dan Schulman, CEO of PayPal (NasdaqGS:PYPL), who said:

 

“Over the next year, both the Venmo and PayPal apps will undergo a fundamental transformation intended to dramatically increase their functionality and drive engagement...This expanded suite of services will include enhanced direct deposit and check cashing, budget and savings tools, bill pay, investment alternatives, including crypto, subscription management, buy now, pay later optionality and all of Honey’s shopping tools from wish list, price monitoring, deals, coupons, and rewards…We recently announced that PayPal will allow account holders to buy, sell and hold cryptocurrencies first, in the U.S. and then expanding to international markets in the Venmo platform in the first half of next year…We will rapidly move at the beginning of next year and allow consumers to use cryptocurrencies as a funding instrument to shop across all 28 million of our merchants. This solution will not involve any additional integrations, volatility risk or incremental transaction fees for either consumers or merchants and will fundamentally bolster the utility of cryptocurrencies…”

 

On Monday the Wall Street Journal reported that President-elect Joe Biden intends to nominate former Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen as the next U.S. Treasury Secretary. CoinDesk has assembled some of Yellen’s views on Bitcoin, indicating on the one hand her skepticism toward it:

 

“I will just say outright I am not a fan, and let me tell you why. I know there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies and maybe something is coming down the line that is more appealing but I think first of all, very few transactions [that] are actually handled by bitcoin, and many of those do take place on bitcoin are illegal, illicit transactions.”

 

…but happily also her reluctance to intervene in the market to stifle it:

 

“The Fed doesn’t have authority to supervise or regulate bitcoin in any way.”

Stocks discussed: (TSXV:HIVE) (NasdaqGS:PYPL)

 

Bitcoin (BTC) has made it through the weekend with support at or above $18,000 relatively intact. It did, however, briefly dip down to a trading price of about $17,750 on Sunday, but has since recovered and is trading for roughly $18,475 at press time, according to data from CoinMarketCap. But Bitcoin is not alone in this recent rally. Many so-called altcoins, such as Ethereum (ETH) and XRP,  are seeing considerable upward movement, with both posting double-digit percentage gains in the past 24 hours. Also derived from CoinMarketCap’s data, Ethereum is up about 11 percent, and XRP is up 22.5 percent over yesterday, at press time.

 

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV:HIVE) has entered into a non-binding, exclusive memorandum of understanding (MOU) with GPU.One Holding Inc. to purchase GPU Atlantic Inc., a new and state of the art 50 MW data centre campus located in New Brunswick, Canada. Frank Holmes, Interim Executive Chairman of HIVE, commented:

 

"We are excited about this opportunity for HIVE to expand our Canadian footprint through the acquisition of this data centre campus which has access to 50 megawatts of low-cost green power in Grand Falls, New Brunswick. Further, and important to building our vision, is the GPU.One team of young, skilled and proven data centre professionals with deep high density data centre build out and maintenance experience who will take on executive positions within HIVE's organization."

 

Gazprombank Switzerland, a subsidiary of Russian banking giant Gazprombank, has announced the launch of “a fully regulated cryptocurrency investment and account management solution for its clients,” done in collaboration with banking software firm Avaloq and crypto company Metaco. Gazprombank CEO Roman Abdulin said:

 

“We are delighted to announce the successful launch of our bespoke cryptocurrency offering. Our solution allows us to make transactions with cryptocurrencies as easy as transactions with traditional assets. Digital assets will become increasingly important for our clients and the global economy. We are pleased to work together with leading Swiss-based entities on the further development of the Swiss and global crypto and blockchain ecosystem.”

 

Dan Schulman, CEO of PayPal (NasdaqGS:PYPL), did an interview with CNBC’s Squawk Box, in which he explained the company’s plans for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency adoption:

 

“One of the things that we allowed is not just making it easy to buy, sell and hold cryptocurrencies, but very importantly, early next year, we’re going to allow cryptocurrencies to be a funding source for any transaction happening on all 28 million of our merchants. And that will significantly bolster the utility of cryptocurrencies.”

Stocks discussed: (NYSE:MUFG) (NasdaqGS:AKAM) (NasdaqGS:EQOS)

 

After initially breaking past it briefly on Tuesday, Bitcoin (BTC) is now trading firmly above $18,000, according to data from CoinMarketCap. At press time, it is valued at about $18,770, which is very close to its all time trading high of roughly $19,770 back in December of 2017. Ethereum (ETH) is also performing well, having reached a trading price of $500 just this morning for the first time since June 2018, nearly two and a half years ago.

 

Perhaps reflective of Bitcoin’s recently gained stature, Digital Asset Investment Management (DAiM), described as “the first licensed Registered Investment Advisor for Bitcoin and Digital Assets,” announced that it has launched the first ERISA [Employee Retirement Income Security Act] compliant employer-sponsored 401(k) plans with Bitcoin. Adam Pokornicky, COO of DAiM, said:

 

"From the moment we were approved by the State of California in June 2018, we've seen incredible inbound demand from individuals eager to invest Bitcoin in 401(k)s. Conventional 401(k) plans are restrictive and often lack investment options, causing participants to not only be frustrated but have poor risk-adjusted returns that barely keep up with the rate of inflation. This is a bad deal for savers given the current environment. We believe Bitcoin has demonstrated it has a place  in the modern portfolio and individuals should have an opportunity to "Get Off Zero" and invest directly through their retirement account.”

 

Japanese banking giant Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE:MUFG) is aiming to launch a “high-speed blockchain payment network with the U.S.-based tech firm Akamai (NasdaqGS:AKAM) in 2021,” according to a report from CoinDesk. Through the two firms’ joint venture, Global Open Network (GO-NET), they “will integrate payment terminals from electronic device manufacturer Seiko Holdings with the bank’s credit card company MUFG NICOS in February,” the report says. MUFG is also in the process of developing its own digital currency, MUFG Coin, but it is not clear if it will be related to the blockchain payment network project with Akamai.

 

Digital assets financial services company Diginex Limited (NasdaqGS:EQOS) recently held its inaugural Strategy Day for investors and analysts. During a presentation concerning “the evolution of digital assets,” Shane Edwards, Head of Investment Products at Diginex, said:

 

"This is a new world and understandably there has been skepticism, but the technological advancements are far too profound to ignore. Bitcoin has stood the test of time and we will see increasing mainstream adoption from institutions. We are at the cusp of a landmark opportunity in finance where the markets will be revolutionized in the years ahead."
