Stocks discussed: (NasdaqGS:MSFT) (TSXV:HIVE) (CSE:CRY)

When we left off on last Friday’s Crypto Corner, Bitcoin (BTC) was trading for $6,600. Shortly after, however, it witnessed a rapid drop down to around $6,150 and bottomed on Sunday with a trading price of $5,900 according to data from CoinMarketCap. But after spending the weekend in this rut, Bitcoin has rallied this morning to a current trading price of $6,320.

A possible reason for the hampered and underwhelming growth exhibited by the crypto market following the coronavirus could be that the amount of cash circulating has increased in the same period. Figures from Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) show that the amount of cash circulating shot up between March 11 and 18 from $1.809 trillion to $1.843 trillion, which according to a tweet from economist John Paul Koning, is “the largest weekly increase in US banknotes in circulation since the Y2K jump in December 1999.” This preponderance of cash may indicate that people are less inclined to rely on cryptocurrencies to make transactions currently.

Microsoft (NasdaqGS:MSFT) has filed a patent application for a “cryptocurrency system using body activity data.” The proposed system would allow crypto mining by leveraging body activity data. The application’s abstract reads:

Human body activity associated with a task provided to a user may be used in a mining process of a cryptocurrency system. A server may provide a task to a device of a user which is communicatively coupled to the server. A sensor communicatively coupled to or comprised in the device of the user may sense body activity of the user. Body activity data may be generated based on the sensed body activity of the user. The cryptocurrency system communicatively coupled to the device of the user may verify if the body activity data satisfies one or more conditions set by the cryptocurrency system, and award cryptocurrency to the user whose body activity data is verified.

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV:HIVE) has signed a definitive agreement to acquire a mining operation in Lachute, Quebec from Cryptologic Corp. (CSE:CRY) for an approximate purchase price of $4 million CAD. The mining facility has access to 30 megawatts of low cost green power. Frank Holmes , Interim Executive Chairman of HIVE, commented:

"This is an important strategic acquisition for HIVE that diversifies our business significantly, and we are making it at an opportune time at an attractive valuation for our shareholders. The Acquisition provides us with an advanced, operating Bitcoin mining facility ready to transition to next generation mining hardware with access to some of the lowest cost electricity on the planet. The cost of US$95,000 per MW is less than half the industry standard build cost per MW.”

#CryptoCorner: Digital Farms (NYSE American: $DPW) Suspends Mining Operations, Binance Announces Binance Card and Singapore Exempts Leading Exchanges from License Act

Stocks discussed: (NYSE American:DPW) (NYSE:V)

Bitcoin (BTC) has remained fairly stable since the last Crypto Corner on Tuesday, with a trading price of about $6,600 at press time according to data from CoinMarketCap. Though this current trading price is the result of a recovery from a recent low of around $4,600 – which was brought about by the COVID-19 crisis that ravaged markets everywhere – a bull market is still widely anticipated by many in the crypto community.

One crypto mining firm in the U.S., Digital Farms, has had to suspend mining operations as a result of Bitcoin’s price drop. DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSEAmerican:DPW), the parent company of Digital Farms, revealed the news in a recent COVID-19-related business update, saying plainly:


“Digital Farms’ cryptocurrency mining operations have been suspended indefinitely, primarily due to the sharp decline in the market price for Bitcoin (BTC).”

Malta-based crypto exchange giant Binance yesterday announced the release of its Binance Card, which “works like a regular debit card issued by your bank,” but with top-ups on the Binance Card App in Bitcoin or Binance Coin. According to the announcement, the card is “issued by Visa [NYSE:V] and accepted by more than 46 million merchants offline and online in 200 regions and territories, which makes shopping with crypto easier than ever before.” Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) tweeted:

Payments is an obvious use case for #crypto, yet adoption is slow. With only 0.1% of people having crypto, merchants have no incentive to accept it. And with few merchants accepting it, less users use it for payments. A chicken and egg problem.

Now by using the #Binance Card, merchants continue to receive fiat, and the users pay in any #crypto they choose, Problem solved. Let there be #adoption.

Binance, Ripple and Coinbase are among companies that have been exempt from needing a license to provide payment services in Singapore under that country’s Payments Services Act (PSA), which was enacted earlier this year. According to a statement from the country’s central bank, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), “the exemption will cease after the specified period; or if the entity submits a licence application under the PS Act, on the date that the application is approved or rejected by MAS, or withdrawn by the applicant.”

Stocks discussed: (CSE:NC) (CSE:GBLC)

Bitcoin (BTC) has posted some mild growth since the last Crypto Corner on Monday, clocking in at a trading price of around $6,600 at press time, according to data from CoinMarketCap. It did, however, make a short-lived bullish gesture earlier today when it peaked at just under $6,900 before fizzling out. This was possibly a response to the announcement earlier that the U.S. government had agreed to a $2 trillion economic stimulus package. A report from Reuters on the subject quotes Moh Siong Sim, Currency Analyst, Bank of Singapore:

“The market has been in a dollar-cash-is-king situation...but there is only so much the Federal Reserve can do. Now we are seeing the fiscal bazooka in action, and that should help further ease the dollar funding stress.”

Crypto payments firm NetCents Technology Inc. (CSE:NC) has announced the hiring of Pat Albright as Senior Vice President of Strategic Development. Albright had previously been Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business at Canada’s largest payments processor Moneris Solutions. Clayton Moore, CEO NetCents, commented:

"I think investors will find that our hiring someone of Mr. Albright's caliber and experience, and tasking him with achieving our lofty growth expectations will be a prescient move. We are now managing the development and growth of many revenue streams, and they each deserve significant attention as they are all massive opportunities, we are focused on being pro-active on these business lines and not reactive, and Mr. Albright will bring the rigor and experience we need to foresee any growth and scaling issues caused by a rapidly expanding user base across many business verticals. I look forward to working with him."

Graph Blockchain Inc. (CSE:GBLC) has announced a financial advisory agreement with Gravitas Securities Inc. (GSI) “to assess future business opportunities and develop a capital markets strategy as the Company's financial strategic advisor, while the Company moves in to creating its blockchain supported e-Commerce marketplace for the booming psychedelic and ancillary sector.” Christian Scovenna, President & COO of Graph Blockchain, said:

"We are pleased to enter into an Advisory Agreement with GSI. This announcement of having an investment bank like GSI solidifies GBLC's commitment to spearhead the Company's direction into the e-commerce psychedelics sector while creating shareholder value. GSI has demonstrated exemplary work with public companies with an affinity for growth via M&A proves significant value it can add. We are excited to have GSI assess future business opportunities and develop a capital markets strategy as our strategic financial advisor."

#CryptoCorner: #Bitcoin Sees Spike, Coinbase Sees Record Volumes, NetCents (CSE: $NC.C) Completes Technical Integration of #Crypto Credit Card



Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC March 23, 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:  



Bitcoin Sees Spike Following Fed Announcement, Coinbase Registers Record Volumes, NetCents Completes Technical Integration of Crypto Credit Card and IMF Discusses CBDC

Stocks discussed: (CSE:NC)

Bitcoin (BTC) did not see much movement over the weekend, but has just this morning spiked from just under a $5,800 trading price to a peak of about $6,300, according to data from CoinMarketCap. This comes after a statement from the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors, announcing the central bank’s intention to use “its full range of tools to support households, businesses, and the U.S. economy overall in this challenging time.” Characterized widely as “unlimited QE,” the news triggered “a brief rally in stocks and corporate bonds,” according to a Bloomberg report this morning, but that fizzled soon after trading opened in New York. Similarly Bitcoin seems to have steadied at press time.

But regardless of trading price, Bitcoin, and crypto trading more generally, is registering serious volume. A report from CoinDesk indicates that popular San Francisco-based exchange Coinbase witnessed record site traffic and a surge in market volume over the last several days. According to the article, Coinbase “processed $2 billion in crypto last Thursday and Friday,” and citing data from Bitwise, “$394 million in volume over the past 24 hours.”

Crypto payments provider NetCents Technology Inc. (CSE:NC) has completed the technical integration of the NetCents Cryptocurrency Credit Card. Notably, the press release indicates that NetCents has “started the first merchant integration, which will enable merchants to allow their users to load their branded credit cards using cryptocurrency.” Clayton Moore, CEO of NetCents Technology, said:

“Since starting this process, our relationship with Visa has evolved and expanded. We look forward to working with Visa, evolving and driving these initiatives together. We consider it a privilege to support Visa in their effort to bring best-in-class products to the market. We hope to update you on these advancements in the near future.”

A recently-published speech by International Monetary Fund (IMF) Deputy Managing Director, Tao Zhang to the London School of Economics explored the pros and cons of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). Among the pros highlighted by Zhang were an increased efficiency brought on by decreased costs, greater financial inclusion afforded by the lack of requirement of a bank account, lower barriers to entry for new firms, enhanced monetary policy and the ability to counter other digital or cryptocurrencies. Zhang went on to identify the increased responsibilities required of central banks to implement CBDCs and the risk of negatively affecting their reputation and trustworthiness. Zhang also explored the idea of a hybrid option called a synthetic CBDC (sCBDC), wherein the “private sector would issue coins fully backed with central bank reserves, under the supervision of the central bank.”
