latest updates from Japan's Finance Minister Balks at Changing Crypto Tax Rules
Updates: Jun-27-2018 09:43:59 AM
Japan's top financial official is cautious about the idea of his nation changing how it taxes gains from cryptocurrencies.

During a meeting with the budget committee of the Upper House on June 25, Senator Kenji Fukimaki asked whether Japan's tax policy on cryptocurrency profits could be changed from its current "miscellaneous income" classification to "separate declared taxation," Reuters reported. Taro Aso, the deputy prime minister and minister of finance, said he was cautious about making such a change.

Aso explained that, in his view, it was "doubtful" that the general public would understand such a change. He cited the "international nature" of cryptocurrency as one reason why Japanese residents might dislike a change in tax classification. The finance minister also said he was unsure about the "tax fairness" of implementing such a change.

At present, profits earned by investors in cryptocurrency can be taxed between 15 and 55 percent, due to the miscellaneous income rules, according to Bloomberg. Stock profits, which are treated more like separate declared taxes, are taxed at roughly 20 percent in the country.

While the finance official has doubts about cryptocurrency taxation, he still expressed support for blockchain technology in general, saying they have uses apart from cryptocurrencies.
 
latest updates from US Senators Discuss Crypto Threat to Domestic Elections
Updates: Jun-27-2018 09:37:27 AM
Cryptocurrencies are "tailor-made" for foreign powers hoping to influence American elections, a security consultant told a group of U.S. senators on Tuesday.

Scott Dueweke, director of threat analysis company DarkTower, was one of several witnesses appearing before the Senate Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism to discuss the potential use of cryptocurrencies by foreign agents in order to influence American elections. He argued that lawmakers must focus on identity solutions to prevent undue foreign influence on upcoming elections.

"There is a global shell game being played now," by people hoping to bypass financial disclosure rules, he said. As a result, they are purchasing political advertisements and donating to certain parties in efforts to influence elections.
 
latest updates from Florida Is Creating Its Own Crypto Czar
Updates: Jun-27-2018 09:36:59 AM
The Sunshine State's chief financial officer, Jimmy Patronis, said in a statement Tuesday that he has created a new position to supervise the state's cryptocurrency industry. He explained that the new overseer will be tasked with enforcing applicable regulations to protect investors from potentially malicious actors.

"Florida can no longer remain on the sidelines when it comes to cryptocurrency. I have directed my office to create a position that will oversee how current securities and insurance laws apply to Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and cryptocurrencies as well as shape the future of these regulations in our state," Patronis remarked.

Similarly, Patronis said that the position was needed in order to prevent any form of exploitative investment pitches. And while it's not clear when the position will be filled – or by whom – Patronis said that the steps to be taken are necessary ones.

Indeed, Florida has seen several lawsuits filed in connection with the BitConnect cryptocurrency scam, and the U.S. state was once the home of Cryptsy, the now-defunct exchange service that collapsed in early 2016 and resulted in allegations of fraud, a class-action lawsuit, and a multimillion-dollar judgment.
 
latest updates from Spain's Securities Market Watchdog Completes Blockchain Test
Updates: Jun-25-2018 09:18:38 PM
Spain's securities markets watchdog and a group of financial institutions including Banco Santander have completed a blockchain pilot aimed at testing the tech for registering stock warrant issuances.

The year-long Fast Track Listing (FTL) project saw participation from the Spanish National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) as well as banks such as Banco Santander, BBVA, BNP Paribas, CaixaBank, Commerzbank and Société Générale.

The idea is that shared databases can be used to more effectively register information about the issuance of warrants – contracts bearing the right to purchase new shares at a certain price before they expire – and filter that data to all parties. According to Banco Santander, the pilot showed that the time to register a warrant issuance was cut by more than 70 percent using the pilot platform.

Initial results from the test were promising, the group indicated, setting the stage for further proofs-of-concept around the technology.

"After obtaining such good results, CNMV has decided to continue exploring the possible uses of this technology in its processes and carry on with the project. BME and all the national warrant issuers (BBVA, Caixabank and Banco Santander), as well as international warrant issuers (BNP Paribas, Commerzbank and Société Générale), are also actively contributing to this project," according to statements.
 
latest updates from China's Crypto Ratings Index Puts EOS in Top Slot, Drops Bitcoin
Updates: Jun-25-2018 09:18:04 PM
A research group linked to China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has released its latest evaluation of blockchain networks – with perhaps surprising results.

The China Electronic Information Industry Development (CCID) Blockchain Research Institute – which aims to provide an independent rating system for the blockchain space – has placed the just-launched EOS network in the number one spot, with ethereum and NEO coming second and third, respectively. The release is the second since the index launched in May

Notably, bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, was rated outside the top 10 in 17th place – a drop from 13th in the last list, following a change in the ranking methods.

However, the project sets out to gauge 30 major blockchains based on their technological capabilities and use cases, not aspects related to their financial valuation. According to the index's website, the purpose of the list is to "evaluate the development level of global public-owned chain technology, accurately grasp the trend of blockchain."

The placement of EOS in the top slot may be seen as somewhat controversial, however, since the project went live as recently as June 14 and almost immediately encountered issues with transactions that forced developers to make a hasty fix.

Just days prior to launch, EOS had also seen serious bugs raised by a Chinese internet security firm that required urgent patches to be issued. The report said that loopholes in EOS' code could expose nodes to attackers, giving them the ability to possibly take "full control" of transactions.

In its assessment, the CCID blockchain research team gave EOS 102 points for fundamental technology, 15.4 for applicability and 44.1 for innovation. Meanwhile, ethereum – a platform noted for its smart contract functionality – scored lower on fundamental technology (85.2), but higher on applicability (24.9).
 
latest updates from 4 Blockchain Entrepreneurs Win $100K Thiel Awards
Updates: Jun-24-2018 09:51:17 AM
Entrepreneurs and developers behind four different blockchain startups can add their names to the list of Thiel Fellowship awardees.

The Thiel Foundation, created and funded by billionaire investor and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, announced its 2018 class of Thiel Fellows on Friday. Among this year's recipients are Vest co-founder Axel Ericsson, Polkadot co-founder Robert Habermeier, MyCrypto CTO Daniel Ternyak and Mechanism Labs co-founder Aparna Krishnan, according to a press release.

They join the crypto community's most notable Thiel Fellow - ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, who received the award in 2014. Each recipient will be given a $100,000 grant over the next two years to help them build their current and future projects.
 
latest updates from EOS' Blockchain Arbitrator Orders Freeze of 27 Accounts
Updates: Jun-24-2018 09:50:52 AM
EOS, the blockchain network that has been live for just over a week, is raising eyebrows for its unconventional approach to governance – again.

In an "Emergency Measure of Protection Order" dated June 22, the EOS Core Arbitration Forum (ECAF) – a body set up to resolve disputes in the community – directed the block producers that maintain the EOS ledger to not process transactions from 27 different wallet addresses.

Perhaps most controversially, the ECAF did not explain the reason for the order. "The logic and reasoning for this Order will be posted at a later date." It is signed "Sam Sapoznick, in the capacity of ECAF Interim Emergency Arbitrator.

CoinDesk reached out to Sapoznick and the ECAF to confirm the document's authenticity but did not receive a response before press time.
 
latest updates from Bitcoin Price Falls Below $6,000 to Hit New Low for 2018
Updates: Jun-24-2018 09:50:13 AM
The price of bitcoin slid below $6,000 on Friday, hitting a new low for 2018.

CoinDesk's Bitcoin Price Index (BPI) fell to $5,938.18 at 21:51 UTC, surpassing the prior low of $5,947, which occurred on February 6.

As of press time, that figure had risen above that low, with the price of bitcoin averaging $5,977.02, BPI data indicates. All told, the price of bitcoin has declined more than $700 since the start of the day's trading.

The cryptocurrency's market capitalization has also dipped, sliding to $102 billion – its lowest of the year – according to the BPI.

As analysis previously suggested, market bears may be back in force following the recent push above $6,700. CoinDesk's Omkar Godbole wrote earlier Friday that earlier technical charts showed the potential for a drop below $6,000.
 
latest updates from Bitcoin Price Drops to Within $100 of 2018 Low
Updates: Jun-24-2018 09:49:42 AM
The price of bitcoin fell to its lowest point since February today.

As of press time, the leading cryptocurrency's price went as low as $6,063, according to CoinDesk's Bitcoin Price Index (BPI), a significant drop considering the day's opening price of $6,717.20.

The near-$700 decline (which saw prices decline roughly 10 percent) effectively brought bitcoin to within $100 of its 2018 low of $5,947, reached February 6.

At the time, bitcoin was in free-fall amid regulatory uncertainty, with the decline occurring during the week in which the heads of major U.S. regulators were to meet and discuss the cryptocurrency's price rise with a committee of U.S. lawmakers. Ultimately, however, no action was taken and the price rebounded 40 percent on the week.

latest updates from Japan's Financial Watchdog Orders AML Shake-Up at 6 Crypto Exchanges
Updates: Jun-22-2018 09:49:31 AM
Japan's financial watchdog has issued business improvement orders to six licensed cryptocurrency exchanges following on-site inspections conducted over recent months.

According to an announcement made by the Financial Services Agency (FSA) on Friday, the regulator is ordering bitFlyer, QUOINE, BTC Box, Bit Bank, Tech Bureau and Bit Point to enhance their internal-auditing and user-protection systems.

As a result, bitFlyer has announced that it has temporarily stopped accepting new customers in order to reexamine the IDs of "certain customers."

The firm told CoinDesk that "bitFlyer (Japan) is working closely with the FSA and will resume onboarding as soon as possible."

The exchange has also provided a substantial list of coming improvements to various systems, including user protection, data protection, risk management, new token listing and more, based on the order.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, the FSA launched inspections at licensed platforms in April as part of its increasing scrutiny of domestic exchanges following the $530 million hack on Coincheck earlier this year.

Today's news confirms suggestions last week that the agency would move to force some exchanges to enhance their anti-money laundering procedures, but, going by the FSA notice, the demands are more wide-ranging.
 
latest updates from Korean Government to Lead 6 Blockchain Pilots With $9 Million Fund
Updates: Jun-22-2018 09:48:52 AM
The South Korean government will invest 10 billion Korean won (or $9 million) to support blockchain development in the country, with plans to carry out six pilots using blockchain technology.

According to a report from CoinDesk Korea, the country's Ministry of Science and ICT published a blockchain development strategy on Thursday. The agency said the government plans to invest $9 million in total until the end of 2019 as part of the country's pursuit of "a medium- to long-term plan for expanding blockchain technology."

With that, the ICT ministry said it will take the lead to work with other government agencies to conduct blockchain pilots in the public sector. The works will focus on livestock supply chain management, customs clearance, online voting, real estate transactions, cross-border e-document distribution and shipping logistics.

The main goal, according to the document, is to improve the information sharing efficiency and transparency in these public services by using a distributed network.

For instance, the ICT ministry explained that it will collaborate with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to deploy a system that updates the information of livestock from their breeding, shipping to sales on a distributed ledger.

As such, each party on the supply chain that functions as a node on the blockchain can be informed more promptly so that in case of a problem, the follow-up period could be reduced from six days to less than 10 minutes, the document said.

Similarly, the blockchain pilot on the real estate industry will be carried out with the Ministry of Land and Transport. It expects that by integrating real estate, taxation and legal services with a blockchain, the real estate transactions can become more streamlined and efficient for consumers since their information can be shared automatically among different parties.

"We will establish a roadmap for developing blockchain technology and plan to secure 90% of the technology level by 2022 compared to the world's top countries," the agency said.

In addition, the ministry said will invest 800 million won (or $720,000) a year for up to six years to expand a blockchain research center. The goal is to educate students on the nascent technology and to nurture 10,000 blockchain specialists by 2022.
 
latest updates from Tencent, Chinese Officials Partner on Fighting Blockchain Security Risks
Updates: Jun-22-2018 09:48:26 AM
Technology giant Tencent is teaming up with the Chinese government to fight blockchain-related security issues.

The firm's vice president, Bin Ma, announced the formation of the China Blockchain Security Alliance during the China Blockchain Security Forum in Beijing on Thursday, according to a report from ChinaNews, a state-owned media outlet.

The forum, hosted by the government-backed China Technology Market Association (CTMA), aimed to unite organizations to protect "the healthy development of blockchain industry," according to the news service.

The China Blockchain Security Alliance will be composed of Tencent affiliate Tencent Security, the China Blockchain Application Research Center, CTMA, and more than 20 public and private institutions, ChinaNews reported.

The conference comes as the number of blockchain-related crimes in China has increased.

In April, state-run media outlet Xinhua reported that the police of Xi'an, a city in central China, successfully cracked down a pyramid scheme associated with the blockchain concept.

The online marketing platform involved in this case lured more than 13,000 participants who invested as much as RMB86 million (about to $13 million) within 17 days after launch.
 
latest updates from ICON Token Swap Underway With 'No Issues,' Foundation Says
Updates: Jun-22-2018 09:47:43 AM
Millions of dollars worth of ICON tokens are now on the move - as the cryptocurrency project begins its token migration.

Designed to connect independent blockchain communities with a variety of governance strategies, the ICON protocol first launched its crypto token, ICX, on the ethereum blockchain, but – in what has become an increasingly popular process – is now moving those tokens over to its very own blockchain.

More specifically, the project, which launched its mainnet in January, is tasked with swapping around $42,750,000 worth of ERC-20 tokens with an equal amount of native ICX tokens from now until September 25.
 
latest updates from $3 Billion Blockchain Tron Kicks Off Token Migration Today
Updates: Jun-22-2018 09:47:17 AM
The 10th most valuable cryptocurrency in the world is set to commence its token migration process on Thursday.

Created by former Ripple representative Justin Sun, Tron aims to build infrastructure for a "truly decentralized internet" that can host decentralized applications (dapps). The project, which started on the ethereum blockchain and launched its own blockchain in late May, has positioned itself as a competitor to its former host.

As such, the token migration is an intermediary step in what Tron has called its progression towards "independence," or in other words, the completion of its departure from ethereum and the activation of its mainnet technology.

Though the token migration is now a key part of the realization of Tron's technology, the original iteration of the project's roadmap did not include a token swap, much less the launch of non-ethereum-based Tron mainnet.
 
latest updates from Bank of International Settlements to Publish New Crypto Research
Updates: Jun-17-2018 08:58:32 PM
The Bank of International Settlements (BIS) is dedicating two chapters of its forthcoming annual economic report to cryptocurrencies.

BIS – considered to be the central bank's central bank – will publish those two chapters this weekend on June 17, the institution announced this week. The full report will be published on June 24.

The upcoming report will follow the bank's most recent quarterly review, which warned that "many cryptocurrencies are ultimately get-rich-quick schemes."
 
latest updates from Quantstamp Defends QSP, Says Dollars, Ether Accepted Out of 'Necessity'
Updates: Jun-17-2018 08:58:05 PM
A week after Quantstamp community members began accusing the smart contracts auditing startup of undermining the value of its $65 million token, the company responded with a statement on Thursday.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, for at least the past week, Quantstamp token holders have been alleging that the company misled them by accepting U.S. dollars and ether, rather than its token, QSP, as payment for its auditing services.

According to the company's published materials, customers are meant to trade QSP to pay for, receive and improve verification services within the Quantstamp network.

The company told CoinDesk that the community's concerns stem from a lack of clarity regarding the difference between two of its projects and admitted that the community's frustration has indicated that Quantstamp "need[s] to do more" to clarify the distinction.

The products in question are, on the one hand, an auditing protocol outlined in its white paper and under development. The other one is a "web product" which it currently uses for audits.

"The Quantstamp web product is separate from our protocol that adheres to the vision outlined in our white paper and is still under development," the company said.

The startup added that its move to accept ETH and USD for its services doesn't diverge from its white paper, and said the alternative payments were also necessary due to restrictions on its token sale. Namely, because U.S. and Chinese buyers were excluded from participating.

"While Quantstamp has accepted QSP, USD, and Ether, the latter two are only accepted for our current offerings and out of client and customer necessity, as not everyone is currently capable of acquiring and using our token," Quantstamp said.

The company declined to comment on CoinDesk's inquiries pertaining to the percentage of audit reports they completed in exchange for USD or ETH.
 
latest updates from Proposed Ethereum Roadmap Would Activate Its Biggest Upgrades Together
Updates: Jun-17-2018 08:57:17 PM
The developer team behind ethereum is considering possible changes to a planned rollout of new technology upgrades.

Addressing rumors that such plans are now under review, ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin told a meeting of the platform's open-source developers Friday that the idea is that the team might seek to alter the sequence in which Casper and sharding, perhaps its two most-anticipated updates, are activated.

Rather than releasing sharding and Casper separately, Buterin said, new advancements in research might enable both upgrades to activate together. (The idea is Casper might be released on a sidechain, or shard, rather than as a smart contract, as previously proposed).

"This is a substantial reworking of the intermediary steps in the roadmap, but of not the final product," Buterin said.

Casper, ethereum's long-planned consensus algorithm proof-of-stake, promises to be more energy efficient and egalitarian than its current proof-of-work system, while sharding could hold the keys to scaling the system to a massive number of transactions. In this way, Buterin stressed that, if enacted, the technologies would combine to create a version of the protocol that could be orders of magnitudes more efficient.
 
latest updates from Kurt Russell Is Going to Be in a Cryptocurrency Movie
Updates: Jun-17-2018 08:55:15 PM
Hollywood star Kurt Russell is one of a number of performers set to star in an upcoming indie film about cryptocurrencies.

The film, entitled Crypto, will feature Russell as well as Alexis Bledel, Jeremie Harris and Luke Hemsworth, among others. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the film focuses on a young anti-money laundering agent, played by Beau Knapp, who returns to his hometown in New York to investigate a case of corruption and fraud. Russell is playing the father of Knapp's character, according to press materials.

Crypto's producers are calling it "a thriller in the vein of The Firm and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" – but with a decidedly cryptocurrency-focused twist. The film was written by Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio.

"Cryptocurrency has captured the attention and imagination of consumers and entrepreneurs all over the world but has never been explored in film in such a nuanced and exciting way," Jordan Yale Levine, one of the producers for Crypto, was quoted as saying.

The independent film is currently shooting in New York with a release date not yet announced.

Crypto may be one of the most high-profile films to date to center on the world of cryptocurrencies. Last year, it was reported that the Coen brothers – the filmmakers behind movies like The Big Lebowski and No Country For Old Men – were working on a movie about the Silk Road, the now-defunct dark market that used bitcoin as its central currency.

Yet Crypto is far from the first movie to hone in on a cryptocurrency theme. One of the more notable – and, at the same time, unusual – forays in this area was Bitcoin Heist, a Vietnamese movie that involved an international, high-stakes manhunt.
 
latest updates from Sweden's Land Registry Demos Live Transaction on a Blockchain
Updates: Jun-17-2018 08:53:48 PM
Sweden's land registry authority and a group of participating banks, businesses and startups have completed the third phase of an ongoing blockchain pilot.

It was announced Friday that the Lantmäteriet has passed the testing checkpoint with the aid of a number of partners. These include financial firms SBAB Bank and Landshypotek, blockchain startup ChromaWay, tech consultancy Kairos Future, real estate search portal Svensk Fastighetsförmedling, telecom Telai Sverige and IT firm Evry.

The group of companies, in sum, provided different elements that, combined, formed the components of the blockchain pilot. For example, Telia and Evry helped verify a live transaction between a buyer and a seller, according to statements. A live demonstration conducted this week included client-side verification of government-approved digital signatures and the final exporting of necessary legal contracts.

Those involved with the initiative said that the smart contract which facilitated the transaction is compliant with European Union laws and regulations, including the GDPR privacy rules.

ChromaWay chief executive Henrik Hjelte said in a statement that "in a distributed environment such as a blockchain, you cannot have a central server for verifying identities, it all has to be based on signatures and verified by the user."
