#CryptoCorner Episode 406-Calibra Changes Name to Novi, Samsung Introduces Security Solution to Enhance Mobile Data Protection – Including #Crypto



Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC May 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: (NasdaqGS:FB) (KSE:005930)

Calibra, the digital wallet associated with Facebook’s (NasdaqGS:FB) Libra digital currency project, has announced that it is changing its name to Novi. A representative from Novi explained the name change in a comment to Cointelegraph:

“When we announced Libra and Calibra last June, we wanted to demonstrate that Calibra, the digital wallet, was closely linked to Libra, the global payment system. Both brands were born out of the same vision, to give people more access to the global economy. However, we’ve found that Calibra and Libra sounded too similar and people were getting confused, so we set out to create distinction between the two.”

According to the press release, the name Novi “was inspired by the Latin words “novus” for “new” and “via” for “way.”

Samsung Electronics (KSE:005930) has introduced a standalone turnkey security solution comprising a Secure Element (SE) chip and enhanced security software which elevates data protection for mobile devices. Dongho Shin, senior vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics, explained this innovation and how it pertains to mobile crypto transactions:

“In this era of mobility and contact-less interactions, we expect our connected devices, such as smartphones or tablets, to be highly secure so as to protect personal data and enable fintech activities such as mobile banking, stock trading and cryptocurrency transactions. With the new standalone security element solution (S3FV9RR), Samsung is mounting a powerful deadbolt on smart devices to safeguard private information.”

CoinDesk reports that crypto custodian BitGo is launching a fully integrated suite of brokerage services for institutional investors under the name BitGo Prime. According to the piece, the new entity has “already launched crypto lending services, and plans to expand these as well as build liquidity on its platform this year.” BitGo CEO Mike Belshe explained part of the project’s goal as drawing “more financially conservative clients”:

“I think traditionally we’ve had the problem of you’ve got this separation of crypto on this side and you know traditional assets on this side and never too shall meet. I think we are starting to see some good signs that there’s going to be crossover.”

#CryptoCorner Episode 404: Square’s (NYSE: $SQ) Cash App Allows Scheduled Purchases, Grayscale (OTC: $GBTC) Reports Surge in Total AUM, BIGG (CSE: $BIGG.C) Partners with IX Asia Limited, DMG Blockchain Solutions (TSXV: $DMGI.V) Releases Updated Operational Outlook


Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC May 20, 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: (NYSE:SQ) (CSE:BIGG) (TSXV:DMGI) (OTC:GBTC)

Cash App, a mobile payment system from Square, Inc. (NYSE:SQ), announced in a tweet that it now allows users to “schedule automatic stock and bitcoin purchases.” The tweet went on to say that “By spreading purchases out over time, you may minimize the impact of market swings.” Square CEO Jack Dorsey indicated in his own tweet that the app’s automatic purchases can be scheduled daily, weekly or biweekly.

BIGG Digital Assets Inc. (CSE:BIGG) has entered into a Partnership Agreement with fintech startup IX Asia Limited wherein the latter will incorporate tools from BIGG subsidiary Blockchain Intelligence Group (BIG). These tools include the company’s BitRank Verified product, which offers a risk score for cryptocurrencies, and QLUE, a Blockchain-agnostic search and analytics engine. Blockchain Intelligence Group’s President, Lance Morginn, commented:

“By partnering with industry leaders like IX Asia it will allow us to further establish our presence in the APEC region. IX Asia has well established relationships and connections and won the Fintech Awards 2019 for Wealth Investment and Management. We look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with IX Asia to bring education and other technical solutions for their current and future business initiatives.”

DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSXV:DMGI) has revealed a new corporate presentation including an updated operational business outlook. A key highlight of this is the company’s plan to “expand its self-mining efforts with a goal to becoming one of the largest North American bitcoin mining companies by compute power.” DMG anticipates that approximately 65 percent of its mining capacity at its facility will be for self-mining by the end of 2021. An excerpt from the press release reads:

Increasing self-mining compute power will require the Company to secure sufficient capital through equity, debt, or joint ventures in order to purchase additional miners, add more megawatt capacity to the Company’s existing mining facility, and potentially acquire a second or third mining facility.

Cointelegraph reports that digital asset management fund Grayscale has reached total assets under management (AUM) of $3.8 billion. Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (OTC:GBTC) has led the growth, accounting for $3.36 billion, or 89 percent of the firm’s total AUM, and has achieved growth of 76 percent from last year’s $1.9 billion AUM.

Stocks discussed: (NYSE:ICE) (NasdaqGS:CME) (OTC:SBHGF)

Bakkt, the digital assets arm of Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE:ICE), has “onboarded more than 70 firms to the Bakkt Warehouse,” – the firm’s platform comprising online and offline digital storage. An excerpt from the blog post, written by Bakkt President Adam White, reads:

The secure storage of digital assets is foundational to everything we do, whether it’s providing regulated bitcoin custody or supporting the delivery of the Bakkt Bitcoin (USD) Futures & Options contracts. This commitment to custody is underscored by a new collaboration with the Digital Asset Risk Transfer team from Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker. Beyond the $125M of insurance already in place at the Bakkt Warehouse, customers can now purchase more than $500M in additional insurance coverage, subject to underwriting criteria.

Cointelegraph reports that the CME (NasdaqGS:CME) has registered record numbers for Bitcoin trading in the past couple of weeks. According to the piece, “May 14 yielded open interest of 10,792 Bitcoin futures trading contracts at CME, totalling 53,960 BTC,” which constitutes “an all-time high for the product.” This is in addition to records posted last week, which saw 4,389 BTC worth of contracts of the firm’s Bitcoin options product, as well as record open interest valued at 14,535 BTC worth of contracts.

Japanese credit card issuer, JCB, has signed a strategic partnership agreement with TECHFUND to develop a sustainable blockchain payment system. The partnership will leverage TECHFUND’s expertise in blockchain technology and security token offerings (STOs). TECHFUND is also developing and providing a platform called ACCEL BaaS (Blockchain as a Service), which aims to accelerate the development of startup and enterprise blockchain applications.

SBI Holdings Inc. (OTC:SBHGF) revealed, in a recent financial report, that it plans to integrate “MoneyTap,” – a Ripple-powered mobile settlements app – with the country’s ATMs. The report explains that currently each bank has its own unique ATM app, but envisions jointly-operated multi-bank ATMs with a common app and utilizing MoneyTap’s settlement network. SBI also announced commitments for further collaboration with Ripple and enterprise blockchain company R3.
