  A pilot project run by Bitbeat-affiliate company CIC Enterprise wants to provide crypto payment solutions at two of the busiest beaches of the country for tourists to use. According to ZDNet Korea, the firm partnered with card and cash payments provider Innotech for the token-powered payments solution in the Haeundae Beach System on the beaches of Busan in South Korea famous with tourists. The program will allow people to pay for water sports-related activities, life jackets, and even parasol rentals, among others, with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), along with MCI and WAY ERC20 tokens through a smartphone-based application. A faster payment solution for tourists Bitbeat said that such payments could be processed in less than 10 seconds by relying on the use of QR codes for any wallet in the world, making it different from similar projects that often require customers to download separate apps to complete all the process. The company adds: “We hope that the virtual currency used in the Haeundae-gu beach system will be more widely used in real life. We will try to provide a cryptocurrency payment environment.” Busan authorities expect that on summer days, people will prefer to rent services within the Haeundae beaches, instead of bringing their own things to enjoy the time spent on the beaches. Another beach in Songjeong is also running a similar crypto pay pilot. Also, in Busan, a private-public consortium in South Korea announced on June 20 their intention to build a blockchain-powered medical tourism platform. A launch date has not bet set, and according to Gyeongnam Ilbo, the initiative will be led by Busan Bank.

  Another good week for Bitcoin last week. The dollar price rose more than 5 percent, taking it to around $11,700. That rise wasn’t smooth. A flash crash took $1,500 off the price at one point, although investors remain bullish and the VIX volatility index, which is based on the S&P 500, is “extremely bullish.” Other volatility measures, though, suggest another drop to $10,000 before a new rally, while the Winklevoss twins think that the amount of infrastructure and capital in the crypto markets will make this bull run very different from the 2017 run. It’s not just Bitcoin that’s been on a run, though. Ethereum has hit a two-year high of $400, supported by decentralized finance protocols, the anticipated arrival of ETH 2.0, and the general rise in the altcoin market. Meanwhile, in the analog world, the US printed more money in June than it did in the first two centuries after its founding. Where there are riches, there are also thieves, and hackers have broken into a cryptocurrency trading platform in Europe. The thieves stole more than $1.3 million from 2gether. The platform has offered customers its own 2GT token as a replacement. Bitfinex is still trying to track down hackers who stole more than 120,000 Bitcoins back in August 2016. The exchange is offering a reward of up to $400 million and is even willing to give the hackers 25 percent of the total property recovered. As for that big Twitter hack that saw accounts as large as Elon Musk’s, Joe Biden’s and Bill Gates’s ask for Bitcoins, authorities have now arrested a 17-year-old in Tampa, Florida. He has been something of a trend-setter, though. Hackers have been taking over big YouTube channels, changing their names to topics like SpaceX and Elon Musk, and offering similar Bitcoin giveaways. The hackers appear to be using phishing attacks targeting the owners of large channels. Not all law evasion is bad though. Chinese Internet users have turned to the blockchain to share a censored news article. The...

  Chainlink (LINK) price continues to set new records as the DeFi-related token surged 52% to reach a new all-time high at $13.8799 today. Over the last 24-hours, LINK has surged by 52%, rallying from $9.05 to as high as $13.8799 on Binance exchange. LINK-USDT daily chart. Source: TradingView.com As Chainlink demonstrated a strengthening uptrend, its competitor Band Protocol (BAND), which also operates as a network for oracles, spiked 50% to reach a new all-time high at $12.44. What’s behind the Chainlink rally? The sudden uptrend of LINK was likely caused primarily by the squeeze of short contracts in the futures market. As LINK was continuously rising, its funding rate stayed below 0%, hovering at -0.02%. The cryptocurrency futures market employs a mechanism called “funding” to ensure the market is balanced. When the market is heavily swayed toward buyers, then buyers have to incentivize sellers and vice versa. As an example, if there is an overwhelming number of traders shorting Chainlink on Binance Futures, then the funding rate would turn negative. In this situation, short contract holders or sellers need to pay long contract holders to maintain their positions. Throughout the past several hours, as LINK price soared, its funding rate on Binance Futures remained negative. This is indication that as its price was soaring many traders were attempting to short the asset. A continuous loop of short contracts caused a short squeeze, which, in turn spurred buying demand and fueled Chainlink’s momentum. A pseudonymous trader known as Benjamin Blunts emphasized that while LINK is theoretically appealing to short, the market sentiment is bearish. When the market is overcrowded by one side, which in the case of LINK was bears looking to short the asset, it tends to move in the opposite way. The trader said: “I actually would be inclined to start looking for shorts soon, however it seems my entire feed is doing the same. So I will wait for another...

  Crypto cards have become a must-have for many crypto services. Hoping to reduce the risk of blocking transactions, companies have been looking again and again for reason why their customers should use “plastic.” But a crypto card is a placebo that does not solve the problems of either users or fintech companies — its only goal is to bring profit to payment systems and intermediaries. Crypto cards are not needed in the same way that special financial instruments are not needed to buy gold, oil, precious metals or any other resource. The word “cryptocurrency” — like “dollar” or “euro” — indicates only the currency for transactions with which the card can be used and does not make the banking product any more innovative. However, until banks and payment systems recognize this, we will be forced to eliminate the consequences of cooperation with Wirecard, WaveCrest and other processors that aren’t the most conscientious, wanting to make money by taking risks but without being able to manage them. Do Visa and Mastercard deserve a cut of every transaction? Bank card technologies have gone through a rapid evolutionary path in a very short period of time. They are the fundamental and connecting element for all retail trade relationships. According to Nilson Report, there are currently more than 22 billion payment cards in circulation around the world — debit, credit and prepaid. Taking into account that 1.7 billion people do not use banking services at all, for each of the remaining 6 billion people, there are on average 3.6 cards. All cards are serviced by payment systems that create a closed consumption ecosystem. Here’s what happens: Banks and processor companies pay Visa, Mastercard, UnionPay, American Express and other international payment systems for the possibility of issuing cards. Cardholders pay banks an annual fee or transaction fees. Sellers transfer to banks on average 1%–4% of the transaction amount for acquiring servicing. Various...

  Real estate blockchain platform developer Ubitquity will build a platform for creating tokenized property titles with Rainier Title, a news report said. The platform will also log records of conveyance for the Washington-based Rainier Title. It will integrate with the conveyance suite Qualia. Rainier Title is currently in the process of migrating to Qualia. Tokens created through the platform represent a client’s property so title owners have more opportunities to develop new value like a fractionalized ownership investment in the real estate. Ubitquity said in a statement that having tokens represent a property, along with records of conveyance stored on a blockchain, creates “huge efficiencies for the abstract process.” Ubitquity’s blockchain-as-a-service platform Unanimity lets clients add data to the blockchain for an accurate store of all records. Along with the partnership with Rainier Title, Ubiquity is also addressing the rise of cybercrime. It built a smart contract module for escrow contracts called SmartEscrow. Its aim is to allow easy retrieval or reuse of data without the need for further verification. The company said with the technology closing agents can better avoid fraud since there is only a single source of truth and reconciliation is no longer needed. Tokenized real estate was once one of the most talked-about projects in years past. But delays in getting it off the ground have caused some to question its viability. However, using blockchain technology for title tokens are still seen as good for the real estate industry.

  Биткоин все еще консолидруется под отметкой $12 000, однако комиссии за транзакции с первой криптовалютой уже заметно подросли. Число ежедневно используемых биткоин-кошельков тоже обосновалось над отметкой 1 миллион, а это значит, что новая форма денег уже прочно вошла в нашу жизнь. Очевидно, что власти Украины это понимают, поэтому активно работают над легализацией криптовалют и регулированием всего, что с ними связано, а Иран пытается завоевать свое место под солнцем в индустрии криптомайнинга. Российские банки увидели выгоду от блокчейн-платформы ФНС Финансовые учреждения отметили улучшение эффективного предоставления бизнесу дополнительных мер государственной поддержки, включая льготные кредиты. Новая блокчейн-платформа, разработанная Федеральной налоговой службой России, позволила эффективно объединить бизнес и государство в цифровом формате на фоне пандемии коронавируса. Об этом сообщается на официальном сайте ФНС РФ. Подробнее Одна страна, два криптопроекта – как Украина переводит гривну в цифровой формат Пока председатель ЦБ РФ Эльвира Набиуллина и Минфин РФ продолжают утверждать, что России не нужна национальная криптовалюта (CBDC), Украина разработала и успешно протестировала цифровой вариант гривны. Для того, чтобы разобраться в инициативе и узнать, на какой стадии находится криптопроект соседней страны, редакция BeInCrypto собрала всю информацию о нем в одном материале. Подробнее Иран стремится к мировому господству в криптомайнинге Правительство Ирана планирует всячески поддерживать работу электростанции, которые будут добывать биткоины. Таким образом руководство страны стремится поддержать криптовалютный майнинг и опередить в этом направлении США. В Иране наблюдается приток майнеров из-за дешевой электроэнергии. Это сделало страну одним из наиболее значительных криптомайнинговых регионов за пределами Китая. Составить конкуренцию Ирану может только США, которые в последнее время приобрели значительную часть вычислительных мощностей...

  This week’s headlines from Japan included Coincheck readying its digital shareholder meeting solution, GMO Coin announcing negative leverage trading fees, Decurret testing transactions with a power company, Japanese authorities proposing tax changes, and Japanese finance company FISCO developing apps for shareholder voting and staking. Check out some of this week’s crypto and blockchain headlines, originally reported by Cointelegraph Japan. Coincheck setting up for digital shareholder service As Tokyo-based crypto exchange Coincheck readies its new digital meeting avenue, the exchange's co-founder expressed confidence in the project. Known as Sharely, unveiled in June 2020, the digital shareholder gathering solution allows for participant inquiries and voting, as well as the option for simple non-interactive viewing. Expecting a launch following the coming fall months, Coincheck is currently looking into future blockchain-based voting right verification for the solution. The solution aims at catering to newly-listed businesses that are still working out the kings of shareholding meetings, Coincheck co-founder Yusuke Otsuka said. Coincheck's parent outfit, Monex Group, also sees application for unlisted businesses. GMO Coin publicizes leverage fee incentive Digital asset exchange GMO Coin recently unveiled a leverage trading fee incentive when trading the Japanese yen (JPY) against Bitcoin (BTC). Formally called a negative trading fee, participants will receive a small payment — 0.035% of the trade — for taking leveraged trades instead of paying a fee. Decurret details recent proof of concept study with power company Crypto exchange Decurret and Kansai Electric Power (KEPCO) conducted a proof-of-concept, or PoC, study in March 2020, essentially testing digital power transactions via a blockchain-based solution.

  The Polish Financial Supervision Authority, or PFSA, issued a warning on the surge of scammers offering fake crypto investment opportunities, which they claim to be the only authorized investment fund in Poland. The scammers call potential victims by asking them to sell or buy cryptocurrencies through the fake fund, but first, they should send the cryptos to the PFSA compliance team’s wallet to verify the legality of the transactions and then, the regulator clears the payment to be deposited in the unexistent fund. The watchdog has been aggressive towards crypto in the past few years and added the following reminder to Polish citizens: "We would like to remind you that the cryptocurrency market in Poland is not a regulated or supervised market. PFSA does not license, supervise or exercise any other powers with regard to cryptocurrency trading activities." Also, the PFSA encourages people to report the scams to the nearest Police unit and gather as much information as possible from the scammer.

  A branch of China’s state-backed grid released its first blockchain-powered blackout insurance policy issued to the chairman of a local company that needed to compensate for a power outage loss suffered recently. According to Shupeidian, Zhejiang Ningbo Power Supply Company, in partnership with Yingda Taihe Property Insurance Co., Ltd., released the policy to a sprinkler manufacturing company in Ningbo, Zhejiang province. Both companies believe that the process of issuing insurance via a blockchain network provides a commercial solution to compensate for the loss caused by an electric outage in a faster and expedited way. Sharing data between parties involved through blockchain The system relies on the distributed storage of blockchain data. All the parties involved in the process could share the data through the chain, which, in a way, “solves the disadvantage of independent insurance companies” to decide on claims. According to the insurance company, the claims’ data generated in the blockchain network can be traced back and cannot be tampered with, avoiding cheating during the issuance process and making the claims process fairer. Deng Chao, internet business department manager of Zheijiang Ningbo Power Supply Company, commented on the process made through the Yingda P&C Insurance Mall platform: "Customers can purchase the planned power transmission delay insurance through the Yingda P&C Insurance Mall platform, and can fill in the insurance information online, choose the insurance plan, and pay the premiums. And receive the electronic insurance policy, which is simple and convenient. In the event of planned power transmission delays, blockchain technology is used to automatically trigger claims based on the results of power outage data research and judgment, and Yingda P&C Insurance completes the claims online.” Recently, an energy supplier in China has successfully deployed its first blockchain node. This node went live through the...

  Вслед за растущим курсом ВТС вверх поползли и комиссионные расценки за транзакции с биткоином, и это уже не такая хорошая новость. В июле курс биткоина (ВТС) пробил, наконец, важный психологический барьер $10 000, который какое-то время казался непреодолимым. Однако у этой хорошей новости есть и оборотная сторона. Комиссии за транзакции в сети биткоина тоже выросли. Понеслось… Согласно данным аналитического портала Bitinfocharts, в этот четверг средняя стоимость биткоин-комиссий составила $6.5, причем за последнюю неделю этот показатель вырос почти на 7%. Более того, за последний месяц динамика прироста оказалась еще более душераздирающей. Для сравнения, 6 июля средний размер комиссии за операции с биткоином составлял всего $1. Таким образом, за месяц этот показатель взлетел на 543%. Тема ВТС-комиссий остается в центре внимания криптосообщества на протяжении всего этого года. Ранее редакция BeInCrypto неоднократно рассказывала о рекордных темпах роста стоимости транзакций в сети ВТС. Какое-то время эту тенденцию пытались связать с широко ожидаемым майским халвингом, однако затем халвинг состоялся, а разворота не происходило еще около месяца. В июне ситуация, наконец, изменилась. Средняя стоимость транзакции с биткоином обвалилась более чем на 80% в район $1, а затем вообще начала стремиться к нулю. Как оказалось, продержалась эта ситуация недолго. От чего зависит размер биткоин-комиссий? Присоединяйтесь к дискуссии в нашем Телеграм-канале – и вы все узнаете! Причины и последствия Текущий рост комиссий, по всей видимости, был спровоцирован ростом курса биткоина. На момент написания этой статьи ВТС торговался в районе $11,660, где он оказался в результате агрессивного ралли, пробившего психологический барьер $10 000. Как мы уже рассказывали, на этой неделе индекс соотношения рыночной стоимости биткоина к фактической (MVRV) достиг абсолютного максимума, что может являться указанием на готовность валюты к началу бычьего тренда. Одним из возможных...

  Many speculate that mainstream adoption of cryptocurrency is dependent solely on improving ease of access and user experience. In reality, there’s an even bigger obstacle: a mentality shift. Self-sovereignty and personal autonomy are the endgame of this technology, and with that goal comes a significant increase in personal responsibility for one’s funds. This is totally at odds with people’s traditional financial experience so far; the legacy system takes away your autonomy and replaces it with convenience, offering useful tools related to fraud protection and password management. By comparison, cryptocurrencies, decentralized finance and other forms of distributed technology fall on the other end of that spectrum, providing the ability to have true ownership of one’s worth. For many crypto-beginners, the liberating elements of crypto and financial freedom are promising but intimidating since security is passed from the hands of a third party directly into the hands of the consumer. To bridge the gap between convenience and security, our industry must place greater emphasis on user experiences and familiar tools to ease a consumer’s mentality shift. The rise of mobile and the crypto floodgate Smartphones were supposed to open up a world of autonomy that had never been seen before. Their adoption gave people the ability to connect and transact with people all over the world, and with the launch of Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and the coming wave of the so-called “Super Apps,” people are able to more freely engage in commerce than ever before. This trend, however, is not permanent. Sure, mobile payments are popular, but they’ve been monopolized by a handful of companies and governments. Everyone who uses these applications does so at the convenience of stakeholders in power. And when the financial interests of those in power are misaligned with the users, the sovereignty of the users is trampled — as was the case when last month when the Brazilian...

  The crypto options market has been evolving rapidly over the second quarter of 2020. According to TokenInsight’s recent crypto derivatives industry report, trading volumes are seeing a 166% year-on-year increase compared to Q2 2019. The derivative products driving these volumes are futures and options. While futures grow with traders betting on a bullish price sentiment, both open interest and volumes of options have reached all-time highs. All-time highs On Wednesday, open interest in Ether (ETH) options hit an all-time high of $351 million on Deribit and $37 million on OKEx. In fact, open interest in Ether options is 2.5 times higher than it was at the start of July. A day prior to the major Bitcoin (BTC) options expiry event seen on July 3, Bitcoin options interest hit an all-time high of $1.7 million on Deribit and $268 million on CME, while daily volumes on Deribit doubled their all-time high, surpassing 47,500 contracts traded on July 28. This all-time high seen the day before its expiration on the last Friday of the month could often mean the increasing acceptance of options and structured products, especially considering the record OI’s hit even on CME, which is the largest derivatives exchange in the world. Luuk Strijers, the chief commercial officer of Deribit, spoke of OI being the best indicator to gauge the market, telling Cointelegraph: “Open interest is the best indicator to assess market adoption, and looking at the charts, it is apparent we are close to the end of July highs.” He added: “BTC options open interest is currently 116K contracts with a notional value of USD 1.5 billion.” New horizons for investors Options are financial instruments that allow investors to buy or sell an underlying asset depending on the type of contract they hold. Call options give holders the right to buy an asset at the strike price within a certain timeframe, while put options give holders the right to sell an asset in similar conditions. Denis...

  СМИ: четыре китайских госбанка подтвердили тестирование кошельков для CBDC 08.08.2020 Roman Petrov #CBDC#Китай Несколько крупных государственных коммерческих банков Китая принимают участие в широкомасштабных тестах системы платежей в цифровой валюте (DCEP). Об этом сообщает 8btc со ссылкой на местные СМИ. Наиболее обширное тестирование проходит в Шэньчжэне. Оно длится уже несколько недель и является частью подготовки к официальному запуску цифровой валюты центрального банка (CBDC). Представитель одного из банков пояснил, что приложение «Цифровой юань» пока публично не доступно — для его скачивания необходим идентификационный код. Разработку DCEP ведет Народный банк Китая, но приложения и сервисы для цифровой валюты создают коммерческие банки. «Цифровой юань» совместно разработали Bank of China, Agricultural Bank of China, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China и China Construction Bank. После полноценного запуска приложение позволит: вносить и выводить средства; делать денежные переводы, в том числе только по номеру телефона; оплачивать покупки и совершать платежи с помощью QR-кодов. Пользователю будет необходимо открыть в одном из четырех банков цифровой кошелек, который привяжут к его счету. Это позволит вносить и снимать фиатные средства. Ранее стало известно, что тестирование DCEP началось с выплаты в мае транспортных субсидий чиновникам Шэньчжэня, Сучжоу, Чэнду и Сюнъаня. В том же месяце в сети появился ролик, демонстрирующий предполагаемую конвертацию юаня в его цифровую версию для разрабатываемой платежной системы. Напомним, центробанк Китая в общей сложности привлек к испытаниям DCEP в реальных условиях более 20 компаний.

  All the speculative capital invested in Bitcoin (BTC) at the moment totals just a few billion dollars shy of Bank of America's market valuation. Bitcoin's current market cap sits just over $217 billion, according to Cointelegraph data at press time, while Yahoo Finance shows Bank of America's market cap holding slightly over $226 billion — a comparison introduced in a recent article from The Next Web. Bitcoin's market cap climbing in comparison Although it has endured its fair share of dramatic price fluctuations, Bitcoin's price has grown substantially in 2020, rising past several different wealth comparisons along the way. Back in March, just before COVID-19 measures turned the world on its head, the United States Central Bank pumped the economy with $168 billion in capital. At the time, Bitcoin's market cap held near $145 billion. In April, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' touted a net worth of approximately $140 billion, with Bitcoin's market cap near $130 billion. On paper, it seemed Bezos could have bought all the Bitcoin in circulation with a few billion to spare, although the mass purchase would likely prove impossible in real life due to factors such as rising prices and liquidity. Since then, Bezos' net worth has reached a staggering $193 billion. Bitcoin's valuation, however, remains higher near $217 billion. The asset could reach astronomical heights In an Aug. 4 crossover podcast episode with Peter McCormack, host of the What Bitcoin Did podcast, Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano recently forecasted a future Bitcoin market cap of more than $80 or $90 trillion at some point before the end of time. Pompliano, however, said he was unsure if Bitcoin would reach such a market cap within his lifetime. A long-time Bitcoin advocate, Pompliano has stated his position many times on Bitcoin as an asset uncorrelated with mainstream markets.

  The price of Bitcoin (BTC) is facing its final resistance zone until the bull market is on fire. However, will it break through this resistance zone in one attempt? The charts suggest that the $11,600-12,000 area is a crucial level to break if the price of BTC is to continue moving higher. As the price of Bitcoin couldn’t break through that resistance zone, a slight drop occurred on Friday from $11,900 to $11,350, after which BTC has managed to pare most of the losses since. Crypto market daily performance. Source: Coin360 Bitcoin faces resistance at $11,800-12,000 BTC/USD is still fighting at the resistance zone at $11,800-12,000. Unfortunately, no breakout just yet, while silver and gold have been showing more strength recently. BTC/USD 1-day chart. Source: TradingView The chart shows that there’s a clear resistance zone at $11,800-12,000. This is a significant level as it is the final untested level until Bitcoin enters open air. If there’s a breakthrough in this resistance zone, Bitcoin’s price can easily run toward $15,000-16,000. Such a run would only increase the FOMO, or fear of missing out, in the markets. However, such a run is currently unlikely, especially given the recent breakout at $10,000. In other words, as Bitcoin’s price went vertical since $9,500 toward $12,000, a breakout above this resistance becomes less likely as there’s no buildup. If an asset wants to break through such a significant resistance, it usually tests the level multiple times before it breaks through. For example, the consolidation period (similar to the months after the recent Bitcoin halving) resulted in the strength and momentum that finally pushed BTC/USD above $10,000. Nevertheless, a breakout above the resistance zone at $11,800-12,000 is not entirely out of the question. Smaller timeframes did hold the $11,400 level and face resistance As Bitcoin’s price dropped from $11,900 to $11,400 last Friday, the previous resistance zone at $11,400 was...

  Russian legislators have passed the nation’s first crypto law after discussing crypto regulation for the last five years. The bill, titled “On Digital Financial Assets,” has had dozens of versions that have varied from one another massively. The version that was discussed last year didn’t have any identification of any digital currencies whatsoever. Another bill presented this year proposed jail sentences for buying large amounts of crypto with cash and large fines for smaller amounts. While the current version mentions digital currencies, it is not going to send Russian traders to the decentralized gulag. Basically, it restricts buying goods and paying for services with crypto, while issuance and trading of digital currencies will be regulated by separate laws that will be discussed in the future. The reason for this is that the so-called, much anticipated “crypto regulation” isn’t about crypto at all. Digital financial assets equal security tokens According to the new law, digital financial assets, or DFAs, represent digital rights, including monetary claims, the possibility of exercising rights under issuable securities, the right to participate in the capital of a nonpublic joint-stock company, and the right to demand the transfer of issuable securities. In a broad sense, this means that DFAs are tokenized securities. Basically, the new Russian law regulates the issuance, turnover and offering of tokenized assets. DFAs can be purchased using fiat — Russian rubles and foreign currencies — and other DFAs. Additionally, in the secondary market, they can be exchanged for digital utility assets. But they can’t be purchased for crypto — I mean, “digital currencies.” That’s the name that they’ve chosen for crypto. Some top coins might have problems in Russia So, there is a long, exhausting definition of digital currencies in the law. However, there is one main principle I would like to take into account: “Digital currency is a set of electronic data...

  Dr. Richard Stallman is well-known for his free software movement activism. His speeches and work revolve around a term: freedom. And it is precisely that word that prompted Stallman to launch the GNU Project, founding the Free Software Foundation and releasing the GNU General Public License, among other projects, to promote the free software concept. RMS, as Dr. Stallman is also known, has some opinions regarding the concept of cryptocurrencies that have been widely discussed within the crypto community. Three freedoms To understand the concept of freedom Stallman often mentions in his speeches, he explains the difference between "free software" and "open source," as the latter term is often wrongly attributed to his work: "The idea of free software is a matter of right and wrong. Justice and injustice. The idea is that users deserve control over the software that they are using. You as a user of software deserve control over the software that you are using, and you deserve to be free to join with other users to exercise this control collectively, whichever groups you choose to participate in. Concretely there are four essential freedoms that users need in order to have full control over a given program. 'Freedom 0' is the freedom to run the program any way you wish for any purpose you have. 'Freedom 1' is the freedom to study the program source code and modify it as you wish. So the program does what you actually want. These two freedoms you can apply by yourself alone." Stallman says that the other two freedoms have to do with cooperation with others, as "Freedom 2" is the freedom to make "exact copies and re-distribute them to others when you wish”: "'Freedom 3' is to make and distribute copies of your modified versions if you have made any, taking advantage of freedom 1. And freedom 2 we make and distribute these copies when you wish. If the users have all four of these essential freedoms then the users control the program both separately and...

Chainalysis указала на рост числа институциональных биткоин-инвесторов из США С конца 2019 года и до мая 2020 года доля американских профессиональных инвесторов на криптовалютном рынке увеличилась с 87% до 92%. Об этом говорится в новом отчете аналитической компании Chainalysis. США уступают только Восточной Азии по объему криптовалютных транзакций. За последний год на североамериканские адреса пришлось 14,8% всей активности среди институционалов. При этом американские инвесторы перемещают более крупные объемы криптовалюты, чем их коллеги из Европы и Азии – от $1 млн и выше. Количество таких транзакций за год выросло с 46% до 57%. По данным Chainalysis, 72% профессиональных инвесторов из США отдают предпочтение биткоину перед другими криптовалютами. Visa заявила о готовности поддержать развитие цифровых валют Глобальная платежная сеть Visa считает, что цифровые валюты обладают потенциалом для повышения ценности цифровых платежей. Отметив роль биткоина в их появлении, компания заявила о своей готовности поддержать развитие этого пространства. «Концепция цифровой валюты — цифровая версия наличных денег, управляемая при помощи приватных ключей, — была создана более десяти лет назад с запуском биткоина. Сегодня большие надежды возлагаются на привязанные к фиату цифровые валюты, известные как «стейблкоины», — говорится в блоге компании. По словам представителей Visa, интерес к стейблкоинам, которые объединяют преимущества цифровых валют и стабильность существующих валют вроде доллара США, проявляют не только в пространстве финтеха, но и за его пределами — в крупных финансовых институтах и центробанках. Компания отметила, что уже работает с лицензированными и регулируемыми платформами в сфере цифровых валют, такими...

  Финансовые учреждения отметили улучшение эффективного предоставления бизнесу дополнительных мер государственной поддержки, включая льготные кредиты Новая блокчейн-платформа, разработанная Федеральной налоговой службой России, позволила эффективно объединить бизнес и государство в цифровом формате на фоне пандемии коронавируса. Об этом сообщается на официальном сайте ФНС РФ. Платформа на базе блокчейна помогла повысить эффективность мер государственной поддержки микро и малого предпринимательства, заявил руководитель ФНС РФ Даниил Егоров. Упрощение бюрократии Сообщается, что с помощью блокчейн-технологии российские банки смогли минимизировать время выдачи бизнесу дополнительных меры государственной поддержки — льготных кредитов, а также сократить трудозатраты на предоставление и обработку информации.

Примечательно, что в начале июля Российский совет торговых центров (РСТЦ) заявил, что четверть всех торговых центров в итоге могут закрыться, если правительство не разрешит отсрочить уплату налогов за 2020 год. «Отрасль не получила от государства ни субсидий, ни компенсаций недополученного арендного дохода, а рассмотрения всех предложений о поддержке отрасли неизменно завершаются отказами», — заявил в интервью РБК управляющий директор РСТЦ Олег Войцеховский. Блокчейнизация В ФНС, однако, заявили, что представители банков заинтересованы в дальнейшем расширении применения блокчейна «и на другие меры поддержки бизнеса». «Представители банков предложили рассмотреть вопрос расширения применения цифровой платформы и на другие меры поддержки бизнеса», — заявили в ФНС РФ. В отличие от цифровых активов, регулирование которых в России все еще до конца неизвестно, технология блокчейна применяется достаточно активно. Ранее, например, редакция BeInCrypto писала, что крупнейший российский банк представил систему автоматизированных платежей на базе технологии распределенного...
