Listen to today’s Crypto Corner Podcast:  

Stocks discussed: (NYSE:IBM) (TSXV:HIVE) (CSE:BIGG)

The crypto market saw some impressive gains beginning on Monday and continuing to press time today. Total market capitalization had been fairly stable around $217 billion over the weekend, but has since reached as high as $244 billion on Tuesday and this morning, and is currently sitting at $242 billion, according to data from CoinMarketCap. Bitcoin (BTC), which accounts for about 66 percent of the market share, rose from around $8,100 to a current trading price of $8,830.

Mediterranean olive oil giant CHO and IBM (NYSE:IBM) have announced that the former will be leveraging the latter’s IBM Blockchain to provide traceability and enhance quality assurance for its Terra Delyssa extra virgin olive oil. An excerpt from the press release reads:

Blockchain technology enables greater trust across the supply chain by creating a permanent, digitized chain of transactions that cannot be altered. Olive farmers, millers, distributors and retailers alike can all interact more efficiently using near real-time access to comprehensive product data. Consumers can be provided access to detailed information traced to the blockchain about the origins of the products they consume.

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV:HIVE) has released an operational update, indicating that the firm “has experienced a more than 20% increase in newly minted Ether coins mined daily compared to its exit run rate for the last 15 days in December 2019.” This follows HIVE’s “Muir Glacier” Ethereum (ETH) network upgrade earlier in the month. Frank Holmes, Interim Executive Chairman of HIVE, commented:

"As one of the world's largest miners on the Ethereum network, we are excited about recent developments on the network including the beneficial impact of the recent network upgrade. The recent uptick in the number of unique addresses on the Ethereum network also illustrates increasing adoption of the network, which we hope will also result in an increase in the price of Ethereum as such activity has been correlated with the price of Ethereum coins in the past.”

BIGG Digital Assets Inc. (CSE:BIGG) has provided an update on its Certified Cryptocurrency Investigator (CCI) designation program. According to the press release, “the CCI program teaches students how to track, trace and investigate cryptocurrency transactions and/or crimes.” Lance Morginn, president of Blockchain Intelligence Group, commented:

“We are pleased to be helping members of law enforcement, financial investigators and educational institutions learn about cryptocurrencies. Through our Certified Cryptocurrency Investigator course (“CCI”), we show participants how to track cryptocurrencies, as well as related investigation techniques specific to the crypto market. CCI was originally designed for US law enforcement across 48 states, and is applicable as accredited hours towards yearly educational improvement. In 2019, we adapted the CCI course content to enhance its usefulness for compliance officers. The response to the CCI designation has been excellent. It also provides tremendous exposure for our other products, QLUE and BitRank.”
