Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC January 31, 2020 - Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news brings you today’s edition of the Crypto Corner podcast and commentary on what’s driving the cryptocurrency market .

Listen to today’s Crypto Corner Podcast:  




Stocks discussed: (OTC:SBHGF) (NasdaqGM:OSTK)

Total crypto market capitalization is sitting at $254 billion USD at press time, according to data from CoinMarketCap. This appears to be a more or less stable support level, at least since the market showed some upward momentum a week ago. Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading for $9,280 as we head into the weekend. It is down a bit after growing fairly steadily throughout the week, having reached a peak of just over $9,500. And Ethereum Classic (ETC), the growth of which we’ve been covering this week, took a tumble just this morning and is down about 7.4 percent at press time, with a trading price of $11.13.

tZero, the blockchain arm of American internet retailer Overstock (NasdaqGM:OSTK), released a letter to investors that outlined the company’s achievements in the last year and its 2020 goals. One of these goals was the launch of broker-dealer tZero Markets. tZero CEO Saum Noursalehi explained:

We continue to make progress advancing our retail broker-dealer, tZERO Markets. This is an important initiative as it will allow us to integrate our web and mobile app experiences in the future, enabling investors to trade digital securities and cryptocurrencies on one platform. We are working closely with regulators and are targeting a launch of tZERO Markets in the first half of this year.

Japanese financial services firm SBI Holdings, Inc. (OTC:SBHGF) announced today that new shareholders were eligible to receive either 2,000 yen worth of XRP ($18), or an array of products from pharmaceutical company SBI Alapromo Co., Ltd. Shareholders who have been with the company for over a year, however, were eligible for 8,000 yen worth of the cryptocurrency ($73). SBI has ties with XRP developer Ripple through the former’s subsidiary SBI Ripple Asia. In May of last year, Investorideas.com reported on “the launch of in-store payments based on the firm's Money Tap service.”

Cointelegraph reports that the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) has exceeded $100 billion in volume for its Bitcoin futures trading product. CME Group Managing Director and Global Head of Equity Index Alternative Investment Products, Tim McCourt, told Cointelegraph:

“CME Bitcoin futures have surpassed $100 billion in total notional value traded since their launch in December 2017.”

“Our Bitcoin futures have evolved over the last two years and are now one of the most liquid, listed bitcoin derivatives available globally.”

“We continue to see strong participation from institutional investors, physical bitcoin traders and other clients who value the transparency, price discovery and risk transfer that only a regulated marketplace like CME Group can offer.”

#CryptoCorner: ETC Leads Continuing #Crypto Surge, Saudi Aramco Energy Invests $5 Million in #Blockchain Trader Vakt, Hut 8 (TSX: $HUT.TO) CEO to Step Down, Swiss Regulators Approve IPO on Blockchain



Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC, January 29, 2020 -  Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news brings you today’s edition of the Crypto Corner podcast and commentary on what’s driving the cryptocurrency market .

Listen to today’s Crypto Corner Podcast:  



ETC Leads Continuing Crypto Surge, Saudi Aramco Energy Invests $5 Million in Blockchain Trader Vakt, Hut 8 CEO to Step Down as Company Amends Agreements with Bitfury and Swiss Regulators Approve IPO on Blockchain

Stocks discussed: (OTC:ETCG) (2222.SR) (TSX:HUT)

The crypto market has continued its upward momentum with total market capitalization clocking in at about $255 billion USD at press time, according to data from CoinMarketCap. Bitcoin (BTC) has reached its highest trading price in almost three months at just over $9,300. An article from CoinDesk cites Su Zhu, co-founder of Singapore-based crypto investment firm Three Arrows, who observed:

“[BTC] rally looks Asia-driven with the Chinese equity market reopening after holidays has been delayed due to the coronavirus, so traders itching for activity may have set their sights on the 24-7 crypto markets in the meantime.”

As with Monday, however, Ethereum Classic (ETC) has displayed the most impressive growth of the major altcoins with a 24 hour increase of nearly 11 percent. Alongside it, the stock for Grayscale Ethereum Classic Trust (OTC:ETCG), which we linked to ETC’s growth in this latest bull run, is itself up almost nine percent today.

Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures (SAEV), a subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Aramco) (2222.SR), has invested $5 million in blockchain-based oil trader Vakt. Hans Middelthon, MD of SAEV Europe commented:

“VAKT has demonstrated that their platform has the potential to digitise what is currently a very manual process and be truly transformative to end users and customers. Leveraging blockchain theory and applying it to the complicated world of post-trade processing, VAKT has made a compelling pitch to become an integral part of market infrastructure. SAEV’s mission is to develop and deploy technologies into Aramco’s operations. VAKT is an excellent  candidate in this sense and we look forward to helping the company with its development.”

Though Aramco is slightly in the green today with growth of about half a percent at press time, it is unlikely that this news from a subsidiary moved the needle all that much.

Bitcoin mining firm Hut 8 Mining Corp. (TSX:HUT) has announced that its CEO Andrew Kiguel is stepping down from his role, but will remain until a successor is appointed. Kiguel commented:

"As a co-founder, it's been a privilege to help build Hut 8 from a start-up to a category-leading company that's generated over $115 million in revenue since 2018. We've accomplished significant milestones, including raising over $100 million in debt and equity and the completion of our 67 MW facility in Medicine Hat. Hut 8 survived the 2018 bitcoin price collapse and emerged the world's largest publicly traded bitcoin miner. In addition, Hut 8 was the first cryptocurrency company to list on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 2019."

Feel free to check out an interview Investorideas.com did with Andrew Kiguel in October last year, in which he discussed the company’s TSX listing and much more.

But, in addition to that, Hut 8 has also entered into a non-binding term sheet with Bitfury Holding BV, “to amend key agreements between the two companies with the intent of reducing operating costs and providing more autonomy to Hut 8 in managing its Canadian operations.” Regarding this, Kiguel said:

"The amendment of these contracts will allow Hut 8 to operate more independently as the company continues to mature. Once finalized, Hut 8 will have reduced its operating costs by over $2 million annually. Bitfury remains the largest Hut 8 shareholder and an important strategic partner.”

Swiss blockchain firm OverFuture has been approved by regulators to proceed in what will be Switzerland’s first IPO launched on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, according to a press release today. An excerpt from the release reads:

A huge difference when compared to the traditional ecosystem of intermediaries operating the capital markets sector, at least under three main aspects: costs, time and direct sale of the issuers to the investors. Some traditional regulated exchanges (ex SDX – Swiss Digital Exchange by the Swiss Exchange SIX) are already preparing themselves to a new digital way to distribute securities.
A company’s articles of incorporation natively on the blockchain may represent the first concrete step toward a huge revolution for the way companies access to the capital markets (and crowdfunding).

#CryptoCorner: Green Market Opens Week with BCH and ETC Surging, Julius Baer (OTC: $DMGGF) Announces Digital Assets Service




#CryptoCorner: Green Market Opens Week with BCH and ETC Surging, Julius Baer (OTC: $DMGGF) Announces Digital Assets Service



Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC January 27, 2020 - Investorideas.com, a leader in crypto and blockchain investing news brings you today’s edition of the Crypto Corner podcast and commentary on what’s driving the cryptocurrency market .

Listen to today’s Crypto Corner Podcast:  



Stocks discussed: (OTC:ETCG) (OTC:JBAXY) (OTC:DMGGF)

The crypto market is looking quite green as we enter a new week. According to data from CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin (BTC) has witnessed a growth of about 3.43 percent in the last 24 hours at press time, making for a current trading price of $8,750. The same level of growth can be seen from the top two altcoins by market cap, Ether (ETH) and XRP, which are valued at $169 and $0.23, respectively.

Two altcoins, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC), have seen more impressive growth, however, surging 11.3 and 17.5 percent, respectively. The bull run of Bitcoin Cash may be connected to recent news that crypto company Mecon Cash has integrated it into the latter’s M.Pay payments platform that boasts over 13,000 ATMs in South Korea, according to Bitcoin.com. As for Ethereum Classic, its growth could be linked to news from CoinDesk last week that Grayscale ETC Trust (OTC:ETCG) has committed to donating “one-third of the management fees” to the ETC Cooperative each quarter through 2021. At press time, the stock for Grayscale ETC Trust itself is up 13.91 percent. Quoted in that article, ETC Cooperative executive director Bob Summerwill said:

“It is a big vote of confidence which we deeply appreciate. This funding allows us to continue our support of the ETC protocol and ecosystem. We will provide grants for key projects, as we have through 2018 and 2019."

Swiss banking and financial manager giant Julius Baer (OTC:JBAXY) has announced the launch of a digital assets offering that includes services like secure storage and transaction solutions. This is the product of the firm’s partnership with Switzerland-based and FINMA-licensed digital asset bank SEBA Bank AG, which was announced almost a year ago. According to the news release, Julius Baer “is able to offer access to a select group of cryptocurrencies, chosen for their tradability, safety, and technical reliability.” On the day following the news release, January 22, Julius Baer stock did see a modest uptick of about 2 percent.

DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (OTC:DMGGF) recently revealed that it “has been engaged to host over 1,000 GPU rigs (approximately 9,000 individual GPUs) for a GPU client.” The press release distinguishes GPU mining from Bitcoin-oriented ASIC mining, indicating that “GPUs can be used to mine multiple alternative cryptocurrencies (i.e. not Bitcoin) depending on the profitability of each one at any particular time.” Though DMG generally focuses on mining Bitcoin, GPUs provide additional value in their capacity to be repurposed for High Performance Computing (HPC). Dan Reitzik, DMG’s CEO, said:

“The Company is exploring ways to capitalize on its flagship data centre and HPC is a great way for us to start down the road to augmenting our revenue streams to include non-crypto income.”

DMG’s stock actually took a dip following this latest news release, but has skyrocketed this morning with a gain of 25 percent. This may be connected to the general surge in the wider crypto market discussed above.

And lastly the World Economic Forum (WEF) announced on Friday (Jan 24) the formation of a “Global Consortium for Digital Currency Governance.” The aim of this is to develop “innovative regulatory approaches” and a “set of guiding principles” “to support public and private actors exploring the opportunities that digital currencies present.” Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, commented:

“Digital currency, a cross-cutting topic that requires input across sectors, functions, and geographies, is a key area of interest for the Forum. Building on our long history of public-private cooperation, we hope that hosting this consortium will catalyse the conversations necessary to inform a robust framework of governance for global digital currencies.”

This will be an important and interesting story to watch, even as crypto and blockchain continue to develop and disrupt in the private sector.
