Stocks discussed: (NYSE:SQ) (CSE:TAAL)


Square, Inc. (NYSE:SQ), according to a tweet from CEO Jack Dorsey, is starting a non profit organization called the Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA), “which will maintain a shared patent library to help the crypto community defend against patent aggressors and trolls.” An excerpt from the organization’s website reads:


We believe that cryptocurrency’s success depends on the community coming together to build and develop upon existing technologies to innovate, which is not possible when parties tie up foundational technology in patents and litigation. While patents may at times be useful for defensive purposes, offensive and misguided use of patents threatens the growth and adoption of emerging technologies such as cryptocurrencies. There is concern that “patent lockup” of foundational cryptocurrency technologies by a select few will stifle innovation and deter mass-adoption.


Diginex, the Hong Kong-based blockchain services firm and parent of the crypto exchange, could see a Nasdaq listing by September 23, according to a report from CoinDesk. Until that date, the company’s CEO Richard Byworth explained the significance of communicating the company’s merits to investors.


“This is a really important inflection point for us. It’s really important that we make sure investors understand the value proposition of Diginex and ways we’ve been designed to produce best outcomes for the industry.”


The Governor of the Banque de France, Fran├žois Villeroy de Galhau, gave a speech today in which he pushed the development of digital euro, citing the “increased reliance on digital payment solutions,” and “the development of crypto-assets and of so-called “stablecoins.” An excerpt reads:


We, the ECB and the Eurosysteme, may decide to issue a money in digital form. Let me be clear: we cannot allow ourselves to lag behind on CBDC. That may mean that we create if necessary a retail CBDC, in order to ensure the accessibility of central bank money for the general public, in particular in countries where the use of cash in payments is declining. And/or it may mean that we Europeans may decide to issue a wholesale CBDC, with the aim of improving the functioning of financial markets and institutions. Within the Eurosystem, the ECB has established a high-level task force to prepare a comprehensive analysis of the possible benefits and challenges related to retail CBDC, to be discussed in coming weeks within our Governing Council.


Blockchain infrastructure and service provider Taal Distributed Information Technologies Inc. (CSE:TAAL) has announced the opening of its new office in Zug, Switzerland. Jerry Chan, CEO of TAAL, commented:


"The opening of our Zug office represents a strategic move to expand TAAL's operations in Switzerland, a region that offers enormous potential for the growth and development of blockchain businesses. Our new hires will allow us to further strengthen our business capabilities in this region, and execute on our strategic vision globally."
