latest updates from Another Investor Lawsuit Claims XRP Is a Security
Updates: Jun-9-2018 03:38:04 PM
Distributed ledger startup Ripple has been named in yet another lawsuit tied to the XRP cryptocurrency, court records show.

Investor Vladi Zakinov filed a class action lawsuit on Tuesday, naming Ripple Labs, XRP II – the company's licensed money services business – CEO Brad Garlinghouse and 25 anonymous persons as defendants. The complaint was submitted to the Superior Court of California in the county of San Mateo.

Zakinov's claim centers around the allegation that the XRP token is a security controlled by Ripple. The suit states that Zakinov bought XRP in January 2018 and "was damaged thereby."

latest updates from Crypto Exchange Bithumb Hit With Bill After Tax Investigation Ends
Updates: Jun-9-2018 03:34:16 PM
South Korean cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb has been found not guilty of tax evasion, but now faces a massive tax bill, according to reports.

The country's National Tax Service launched an investigation into the firm back in January amid a wider crackdown on crypto exchanges, and has now cleared the company of wrongdoing. However, Bithumb – one of South Korea's biggest exchanges by trading volume – now faces a bill for back taxes that totals around 30 billion won (almost $28 million), according to local news source eToday.
 
latest updates from Quebec Halts Crypto Mining Approvals Pending New Restrictions
Updates: Jun-8-2018 09:04:46 AM
Quebec has issued a moratorium on new cryptocurrency mining operations in a bid to give officials time to develop new restrictions and potentially increase energy costs, Reuters reported Thursday.

The Canadian province long known for its cheap hydroelectric power has formally stopped approving new projects in order to create new rules around which mining firms will be allowed to set up shop in the region, according to the news agency.

Further, Hydro Quebec, the state-owned power producer, hopes to limit the power that can be available for miners to 500 megawatts in total, or just "a fraction of the 17,000 megawatts" that miners have requested so far.

Hydro Quebec has also reportedly asked Quebec's energy board to create new rates so as to "help maximize the energy producer's revenue."

This is not the first time Quebec has halted approvals for new cryptocurrency mining firms. As previously reported, Hydro Quebec briefly stopped accepting new clients from the space in March, citing the large amount of energy demanded by miners.

At the time, the firm produced a document stating it would be unable to meet demand if every mining project that applied for space was approved.

With new restriction rules, as Reuters reported, Hydro Quebec would be able to choose "the best among the companies" vying to develop facilities in the region.
 
latest updates from Alibaba Affiliate to Boost Blockchain Development After $14 Billion Raise
Updates: Jun-8-2018 09:04:08 AM
Ant Financial, the payment affiliate of Chinese internet giant Alibaba, announced on Friday it has raised $14 billion in a Series C round funding, which will be used to further develop new technologies such as blockchain.

Founded in 2004 as AliPay and later rebranded to Ant Financial in 2014, the Alibaba affiliate touts the goal of offering inclusive financial services to the underbanked. According to today's announcement, the new equity financing will be used to develop the firm's technological capacity in artificial intelligence and internet of things, as well as blockchain.

Though Ant Financial has not revealed a concrete roadmap of its planned blockchain development, the announcement is notable given AliPay's status as a prominent payment provider in China, which claims 800 million active users last year.

The announcement also comes just days after a report has indicated the firm is pivoting to technology services.

According to Reuters on Tuesday, as China continues its crackdown on perceived risks to the financial system, Ant Financial is shifting its business focus away from consumer financial services to technology development. Within that, blockchain remains one main focus, the report said.

In fact, both Ant Financial and Alibaba have already started blockchain-related application development. As reported previously by CoinDesk, Ant Financial has expanded the support for its blockchain-based charity donations platform, while Alibaba has rolled out a pilot of a blockchain Food Trust Framework that aims to track international shipments.

Eric Jing, CEO of Ant Financial, also said in March that, while the firm has ruled out possibility of an initial coin offering, it will continue with blockchain development, taking a main focus on cross-blockchain compatibility.
 
latest updates from Registration for Dfinity's 'Biggest Airdrop Ever' Is Closing Soon
Updates: Jun-8-2018 09:03:30 AM
The registration period for what one startup claims to be the largest airdrop ever will come to a close on Friday.

"Decentralized cloud" company Dfinity announced its token distribution plans last week, and revealed in a statement that it will give away 35 million Swiss francs (about $35 million) worth of its DFN tokens to "hundreds of thousands" of community members. The company, which purports to be a "blockchain computer with unlimited capacity," will launch its network later this year with the aim of staking a claim in the already competitive market of aspiring blockchain cloud computing services.

Backed by major tech investor Andreessen Horowitz and crypto hedge fund Polychain Capital, Dfinity is also in the process of conducting a private sale of its forthcoming cryptocurrency, the conclusion of which the company says will push its total funding to nearly $200 million.

Likewise, unlike other companies in the space, Dfinity has eschewed token distribution via an ICO in favor of what might be called a "compliant airdrop."

In practice, this means Dfinity community members must undergo and pass a know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) verification process facilitated by AngelList spinoff CoinList before they can benefit from the massive token giveaway. June 8 is the deadline for completing the process.

CoinList previously told CoinDesk that it developed its compliance tool (also dubbed Airdrops) to provide a means for token issuers to conduct airdrops without violating securities laws. Despite this, Dfinity is still excluding U.S. citizens and residents from participating, and cited "regulatory uncertainty" as its rationale in a Medium announcement.

Dfinity community members who are able to participate each stand to gain between around $500 to $2,500 worth of tokens, and those who have followed the projects' various community channels longest will receive their tokens first.

Unlike other nascent blockchain projects, Dfinity has not carried out fundraising on the ethereum blockchain, meaning it has not sold ERC-20 tokens as "placeholders" until it launches its technology in full. As such, KYC/AML verified community members must wait for the network activation to receive their tokens.
 
latest updates from Putin: Russia Should Explore Blockchain to Avoid Finance 'Limitations'
Updates: Jun-8-2018 09:02:52 AM
The Russian government has taken a cautious approach to cryptocurrencies, president Vladimir Putin said during an annual "hotline" on Thursday.

Asked if Russia will have its own cryptocurrency one day, Putin said he doesn't see such an outcome as possible because cryptocurrencies "by definition are beyond the national borders."

While expressing that caution, he nonetheless admitted that cryptocurrencies are "developing in the world" and that Russia should explore the opportunities around the tech. Among the possible uses, he said, was to "avoid various limitations in global finance trade" – a suggestion that blockchain could help ease sanctions against Russian banks, companies and individuals imposed in recent years.

Putin also noted during the four-hour annual session that cryptocurrency mining – the energy-intensive process by which new transactions are added to a blockchain, with new coins being "minted" in the process – is not regulated, and similarly, cryptocurrencies are not recognized as legal tender within Russia.

The Russian president notably issued a series of mandates last year to Russian officials, calling for regulations around cryptocurrencies, including the country's domestic mining sector.
 
latest updates from PotCoin Might Sponsor Dennis Rodman's Trip to Trump-Kim Summit
Updates: Jun-8-2018 09:02:17 AM
Retired basketball star Dennis Rodman might be headed to Singapore for the upcoming summit between U.S. president Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un – and he might have PotCoin's help to dit.

Rodman – who has promoted the marijuana-themed cryptocurrency in the past – is reportedly mulling a visit to Singapore, according to his representatives. Having visited North Korea several times (though not without controversy), Rodman's possible visit would present a celebrity twist to what is shaping up to a be a major geopolitical event this month.

According to the Washington Post, Rodman is "in discussions with" the Canada-based startup behind PotCoin to get backing for the trip. PotCoin spokesperson Shawn Perez told the newspaper that Rodman is on a "peace mission."

latest updates from Northern Trust Wins Patent for Storing Meeting Minutes on a Blockchain
Updates: Jun-6-2018 10:48:21 PM
Financial services firm Northern Trust won a patent Wednesday for a method for backing up records of meetings using blockchain tech.

The method utilizes a series of smart contracts to capture data related to the meeting, including records of who is attending (sourced from devices they might carry), when the meeting took place and where. As previously reported, Northern Trust has been using a private blockchain it created with IBM to capture key data since 2017.

Northern Trust hones in on a very specific use case – event data, essentially – but it speaks to the firm's wider trend of gathering operational data through a distributed system.
 
latest updates from SEC's Clayton: 'Come See Us' If You Want to Do an ICO
Updates: Jun-6-2018 10:47:53 PM
The SEC won't budge when it comes to how it regulates token sales, the agency's chairman remarked on Wednesday.

Speaking to CNBC, Jay Clayton stated that sales of security-like tokens must follow the letter of the law.

"If you have an ICO or a stock, and you want to sell it in a private placement, follow the private placement rules. If you want to do any IPO with a token, come see us." The SEC would be "happy to help you do that public offering," he added.

In the interview, Clayton sought to clarify the kinds of characteristics that the agency would look for when determining whether a blockchain-based token constitutes a security.

"A token, a digital asset, where I give you my money and you go off and make a venture, and in return for giving you my money I say 'you can get a return' that is a security and we regulate that," he told CNBC's Bob Pisani. "We regulate the offering of that security and regulate the trading of that security."

And when asked if the agency would come out with a clearer statement on the matter, Clayton responded: "Bob, I hope I just did."

According to a transcript published by CNBC, Clayton declined to say whether tokens like ether or XRP constitute securities, as some have argued.

SEC said last summer that "U.S. federal securities law may apply" to ICOs that it would regulate "various activities, including distributed ledger technology, depending on the particular facts and circumstances, without regard to the form of the organization or technology used to effectuate a particular offer or sale."

Clayton's comments follow the appointment of Valerie Szczepanik as the agency's point person on token sale and cryptocurrency matters. Szczepanik previously led the SEC's distributed ledger working group.
 
latest updates from Cryptocurrencies 'Are Not Going Away' Says CFTC Official
Updates: Jun-6-2018 10:47:09 PM
Cryptocurrencies are here to stay, according to an official from the chief US commodities regulator.

Rostin Benham, a commissioner at the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), spoke during the Blockchain for Impact Global Summit, held at the United Nations Plaza on Monday. During his speech, he emphasized the major potential for blockchain to address issues in healthcare, employment and crime, among other sectors.
 
latest updates from CFTC Denies FOIA Request for Bitfinex and Tether Subpoenas
Updates: Jun-6-2018 10:46:40 PM
The top U.S. futures regulator has denied a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for subpoenas reportedly issued to crypto exchange Bitfinex and the closely-linked 'stablecoin' operator Tether, according to records obtained by CoinDesk.

The FOIA request, filed by an individual who requested anonymity when speaking to CoinDesk, sought "subpoenas issued to iFinex inc. also known as Bitfinex and it's subsidiary companies, as well as subpoenas issued Tether Limited and its subsidiary companies" and was initially submitted in February.

The filing came weeks after reports first indicated that Bitfinex and Tether had been subpoenaed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), though it's not clear what, exactly, is being investigated. That news followed the revelation that the relationship between Tether – which operates the dollar-linked token USDT – and its auditor, Friedman, had "dissolved."

In its response to the FOIA request, dated June 5, the CFTC wrote that it found "thousands of responsive records, all of which are exempt from the FOIA's disclosure requirement," going on to cite a number of exemptions in denying the request, including one commonly applied to law enforcement investigations.

"Some records are exempt from disclosure under FOIA Exemption 7(A), 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(7)(A), because disclosure of that material could reasonably be expected to interfere with the conduct of the Commission's law enforcement activities," the letter stated.
 
latest updates from U.S. Telecom Agency Wants Blockchain Policy Suggestions

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), a wing of the U.S. Department of Commerce, wants to help American entrepreneurs use blockchain technologies.

The agency announced a notice of inquiry on Tuesday, asking respondents to recommend ideas for new policies surrounding a host of areas, including emerging technologies, cybersecurity and privacy, internet governance and information free-flow. NTIA administrator David Redl wrote that "all interested stakeholders" to provide input, which will then "inform NTIA's international internet policy priorities going forward."
 
latest updates from $1,999: GMO Reveals Details of Its New 7nm Bitcoin Miner
Updates: Jun-5-2018 05:36:06 PM
Japanese IT giant GMO Internet has revealed prices and specs for its new-from-the-ground-up bitcoin miner – the world's first based on a 7nm chip.

At a press conference, the company said Tuesday that its 7nm ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) that will power the new B2 miner is designed in Japan, but manufactured in Taiwan.

The arrival of a 7nm chip is notable since it ushers in more hashing power for bitcoin miners, while at the same time theoretically reducing power consumption, an important factor for miners in seeking return on their investment.

According to a Bloomberg reporter who tweeted from the event, the B2 will provide a hash rate of 24TH/s, with power consumption at 1,950W per unit – that breaks down at 81W per 1 TH/s.

By comparison, the current market leader – Bitmain's Antminer S9 – offers 14TH/s at a power consumption of around 1,300W.

The B2 may offer market leading power, if GMO's figures prove to be accurate, but it will come at a price – $1,999 to be exact. That's compared with $837 for the Antminer S9.
 
latest updates from Magic Number? Chart Data Hints at June 6 Bitcoin Boost
Updates: Jun-5-2018 05:34:48 PM
A major reprieve just may be in the offing for the battered bitcoin bulls in the next 36 hours – if, that is, historical patterns repeat themselves.

Intriguingly, the cryptocurrency tends to take a significant change of direction on the sixth day of every month.

Having topped out in the $20,000 neighborhood in mid-December 2017, the cryptocurrency fell to a 2018 low of $6,000 on Feb. 6. Since then, the cryptocurrency has been restricted to a narrowing price range, as indicated by the triangle pattern in the chart below.

What's more interesting is that major price highs and lows over that time have formed around the sixth day of every month.
 
latest updates from China Has Built a Blockchain System That Could Replace Paper Checks
Updates: Jun-5-2018 05:33:59 PM
China's central bank has finished work on a blockchain-based system that digitizes checks issued by domestic businesses, according to a senior official.

In an op-ed published by a local news source on Tuesday, Di Gang, deputy head of the digital currency research lab at the People's Bank of China, said the department has "completed the infrastructure of a system that issues digital checks based on a blockchain with smart contracts technology."

According to Di, the work comes after a year-long R&D process that kicked off in 2016 when the lab first announced its plans to look to blockchain technology in the hopes of solving the issue of check fraud in the Chinese market. It was later reported that, in January 2017, the agency had successfully tested a prototype in a virtual environment.

Based on Di's explanation, physical business checks in China function like money orders, except that besides being used to claim a payment from a bank, recipients can also exchange them with other entities.

An apparent problem with the existing system is the large numbers of intermediaries that take on the role of traditional banks to issue checks, and that brings added risks of fraud, he said. Subsequently, fake checks can circulate among commercial banks and potentially undermine the country's financial integrity.

Built to arrive at consensus with the use of practical byzantine fault tolerance (PBFT), Di said the agency's blockchain platform can essentially tokenize checks, while transactions can be controlled via smart contracts.

A main benefit of the system, he said, is to give regulators a transparent overview of the entire life cycle of a digital check, regardless of whether it is being redeemed for cash or being used as a security to back up other corporate assets.
 
latest updates from Telecoms Giant Wants to Move Mobile Data Top-Ups to a Blockchain
Updates: Jun-5-2018 05:31:35 PM
China Mobile Corporation, one of the three state-owned telecommunications giants in the country, is exploring the use of distributed ledger technology within its core mobile data business.

According to patent application filed with China's State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) in November 2016 and made public on Tuesday, the company is eyeing the development of a blockchain network to handle transaction requests for mobile data top-ups and remove the heavy processing load from its data centers.

With such a system, the document says, when a user first signs up for a network plan, an initial top-up transaction will be created together with the user's information. This data is then stored on a blockchain that consists of what the firm calls "top-up nodes."

Subsequently, when the user sends requests for further data top-ups, China Mobile would debit funds from the user's account, at which point the blockchain nodes would verify the transaction based on the information it already holds on the user. Following verification, China Mobile would then allocate more mobile data to the user, according to the request.
 
latest updates from Hyperchain Blockchain Creator Completes $234 Million Funding Round
Updates: Jun-4-2018 01:22:25 PM
Qulian Technology, a China-based blockchain platform developer, has announced the completion of a 1.5 billion Chinese yuan ($234 million) Series B funding round.

According to an announcement from Qulian on Sunday, the news comes just a week after the deal's lead investor Xinhu Zhongbao, a Shanghai-listed real estate and finance firm, first disclosed its plan to invest in the project in a filing with the Shanghai Stock Exchange on May 27.

The document indicated that Xinhu Zhongbao intended to invest 1.23 billion CNY ($192 million) in Qulian through a combination of a $17 million capital contribution transfer and a $175 million new equity issuance. The deal resulted in the investor holding 49 percent of Qulian's shares.

Founded in 2016, Qulian sets out to develop enterprise-grade solutions based on its hyperchain blockchain platform. Based on Xinhu Zhongbao's disclosure, the firm recorded revenue of $281,000 and a net loss of $2.34 million in 2017, while the firm was valued at $234 million.

This is the second time that Xinhu Zhongbao has shown its support for Qulian, having already purchased a small amount of the firm's shares in April 2018, at which point the investor valued Qulian at $78 million.
 
latest updates from Chinese Firm Reportedly Nets $18 Million in 'Questionable' Token Sale
Updates: Jun-4-2018 01:21:57 PM
A Chinese healthcare firm has reportedly raised 120 million yuan ($18 million) by issuing a custom cryptocurrency, despite China's 2017 ban on initial coin offerings (ICOs).

According to an Investor China report on Monday, the company involved – called Zhaoyun Group and apparently based in Hangzhou – focuses on the healthcare and scientific research industry.

While the company's official website does not include any information about an ICO, posts on social networks and forums indicate that the company launched a token sale on April 8.

According to the posts, Zhaoyun Group targeted the issuance of 170 million of its own ERC-20-based (an Ethereum standard) tokens, dubbed Trillion Cloud Gold (TGCG), 10 percent of which were sold through a public offering.

Data from etherscan.io, the website that tracks transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, shows that all the tokens were created in mid-March 2018, but that no transactions were made thereafter.

Through conversations with promotors in the token sale's WeChat groups, the report indicated that the public offering raised the $18 million through a tiered distribution system wherein members receive a return on their investment by attracting additional investors to purchase the token.

The report went on to call the firm's conduct "questionable," given that it could have violated China's notable ban on ICOs, while the firm's business model appears to "very similar" those seen in pyramid and Ponzi schemes.
