  The news that payments company PayPal will support cryptocurrencies has given the industry a major boost — but there are tax implications that are little understood by crypto noobs. PayPal users will soon be able to use digital assets as a funding source for purchases at its 26 million merchants worldwide. The company has almost 350 million active users worldwide and Alex Mashinsky, the CEO of crypto lending platform Celsius, has predicted the integration could result in “millions of new users” getting into crypto. Unfortunately, they could face a tax nightmare arising from the volatile nature of crypto assets and the tax reporting requirements. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), digital assets such as Bitcoin are treated like property, not currencies. This means that every time you sell, exchange or dispose of a cryptocurrency to buy something else, that becomes a taxable event. PayPal’s press release states that it will be acting as an exchange in addition to a payments gateway; “Consumers will be able to instantly convert their selected cryptocurrency balance to fiat currency, with certainty of value and no incremental fees.” However, it will not allow cryptocurrencies to be taken off the platform and sent to a bank, or back to the wallet from which they came. Selling crypto within PayPal triggers a taxable event as does using the crypto to buy anything, as PayPal converts the funds into fiat first before paying the merchant. Because Bitcoin and crypto assets are volatile, users will be liable for significant capital gains tax on the amount the asset has gained between the time it was acquired and spent. That’s not a problem as long as users keep records and put tax aside — but most new users are unlikely to understand the tax implications and requirements. Gains and losses ultimately need to be reported on IRS Form 8949 and submitted with your tax return each year, according to Cryptotrader.tax. It used an example of buying a new TV...

  21.10.2020 Средняя сумма транзакции BTC в долларах выросла в шесть раз за три месяца Автор Adem Средняя сумма транзакции BTC в долларах выросла с июля этого года с $25 000 до $151 000 по состоянию на 20 октября. Это говорит о росте активности крупных инвесторов. По данным BitInfoCharts, средняя сумма транзакции BTC в долларах выросла в шесть раз за прошедшие три месяца. В начале недели этот показатель резко вырос почти на $50 000 – перед выходными средняя сумма транзакции в биткоинах была эквивалентна $105 000. Рост произошел вскоре после того, как доминирование биткоина по капитализации выросло до максимальных уровней с 2017 года. Средняя сумма транзакции определяется как стоимость в долларах всех BTC, переданных за сутки, деленная на количество транзакций. Этот параметр говорит в основном об активности крупных инвесторов — он растет, когда начинают чаще передаваться крупные суммы BTC. Нынешний средний размер транзакции биткоина в 190 раз превышает аналогичный показатель для Эфириума, который составляет $793. При этом количество ежедневных транзакций в сети Эфириума увеличилось на 30% на фоне бума DeFi в августе, достигнув двухлетнего максимума в 1.29 млн 10 августа. За тот же период суточный объем транзакций биткоина составлял от 300 000 до 350 000. Количество активных адресов биткоина также не претерпело значительных изменений и находилось в диапазоне от 650 000 до 970 000 последние четыре месяца. Последние данные говорят о росте активности институциональных инвесторов. Крупные инвестиционные фирмы, например, Grayscale и Microstrategy, увеличили вложения в BTC и другие криптовалюты за последние несколько месяцев. Кроме того, в начале месяца компания Джека Дорси Square купила 4709 BTC за $50 млн. Однако большинство крупных транзакций в криптовалютах остаются анонимными. Недавно количество адресов, на которых хранится более 100 BTC, выросло до 16 159. Этот показатель достиг максимум за полгода. Источник Показать комментарии...

  The South Korean telecom giant SK Telecom has announced it will issue its first digital wallet for blockchain-powered digital certificate storage and management with the approval of the Ministry of Public Administration and Security. According to NewsTomato, SK’s Wallet is compatible with the ministry’s own Government24 digital certificate initiative, which promotes the use of electronic certificate issuance and distribution systems in South Korea in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. SK Telecom’s digitalized public certificates include copies of resident registration cards, health insurance qualification certificates, immigration certificates, among other documents previously issued on paper and signed by hand. They will be now issued through a mobile app backed by blockchain technology. Certificates issued through the Government24 app can be received in the SK’s wallet and later submitted to public entities, financial institutions, and private companies as electronic documents. In the initial stage, 13 types of certificates will be compatible with the wallet, but at the end of the year, SK Telecom plans to make it compatible with “a total of 100 types” of certificates, including tax-related documents. Oh Se-hyun, head of SK Telecom's Blockchain & Certification Business Division, argued that blockchain is an essential technology in a society that is “rapidly changing due to the need for non-face-to-face solutions where we need innovation in the process of submitting and processing certificates centered on paper documents and manual work.” He also highlighted the security advantages that the technology could bring to such processes. Recently, it was revealed that one million South Koreans have foregone their physical drivers licenses in favor of a blockchain-powered digital alternative used in conjunction with the PASS smartphone app. This represents more than 3% of the entire driving population in South Korea, which sat at 32.6 million licensed drivers...

  On Oct. 21 Bitcoin (BTC) price overtook the $13K mark to reach $13,217 after traders took out key resistance levels at $11,900, $12,000, and $12,500 in the last 48-hours. While there are various technical reasons behind the abrupt upsurge, there are three key factors buoying the rally. The three catalysts are a favorable technical structure, PayPal enabling cryptocurrency purchases, and Bitcoin's rising dominance rate. PayPal's crypto announcement adds to BTC's momentum Earlier today, PayPal officially announced that it is allowing users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin. Throughout the past year, speculations on PayPal’s potential cryptocurrency integration continuously intensified after various reports claimed the company was working on it. In an official statement, Dan Schulman, the president and CEO of PayPal, confirmed the cryptocurrency integration. He wrote: “We are eager to work with central banks and regulators around the world to offer our support, and to meaningfully contribute to shaping the role that digital currencies will play in the future of global finance and commerce." Following PayPal’s statement, the price of Bitcoin immediately rose from around $12,300 to as high as $12,900. Sui Chung, the CEO of CF Benchmarks, a subsidiary of Kraken exchange, told Cointelegraph that bullish sentiment is likely returning to the crypto market. According to Chung: “Bitcoin passing $13,000 today, a 16-month high, demonstrates that this trend is only picking up pace. That PayPal, a household name, has received a conditional BitLicense is likely propelling bullish sentiment. Today is significant as a signpost for further price appreciation in the future… the point by which mainstream media and ‘mom and pop’ retail investors may soon start to show interest in the asset, as they did in late 2017.” Bitcoin dominance is rising In the past week, Bitcoin has outperformed alternative cryptocurrencies, decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens...

  Bitcoin (BTC) has rallied above $13,000 for the first time since July, and only the third time since the all-time high bull run of late-2017. The move follows the long sustained period of five-figure price action, with BTC having spent nearly the entirety of the past 12 weeks trading above $10,000. Weekly BTC/USD chart: BitcoinWisdom The spike was triggered by news that the global payments giant PayPal is launching support for Bitcoin, in addition to Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Quantum Economics founder Mati Greenspan said the rally was almost entirely driven by PayPal. "There's no doubt in my mind that this bit of news is almost solely responsible for today's extended gains." BTC is up 10% over the past 24 hours, while ETH is up 8%, BCH is up 9%, and LTC is up more than 15% today. While Ethereum has rallied alongside Bitcoin, ETH has failed to maintain its strength relative to Bitcoin since rallying into the low-mid $400s amid the decentralized finance boom in August. Ether is currently testing resistance at $400. In response to the news from PayPal, Alex Mashinsky, CEO of crypto lending platform Celsius, said: “This is definitely a bullish sign for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Crypto is all about trust, and PayPal has a very high level of trust with its users [...] If the UI/UX of the service is done right, we will see millions of new users join each month.”

  Per guidance released Wednesday evening, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is advising businesses trading in crypto derivatives to hold customer funds very carefully. The new guidance continues the CFTC's interest in carving out rules for custodianship of virtual currencies — an area obviously distinct from any other asset class. Per the commission: "Custodians of virtual currencies are typically not subject to a system of comprehensive federal or state regulation and oversight, which includes safeguarding of these novel assets, and this raises potential risks to the protection of customer funds held at such custodians." The specific provisions of the guidance limit the locations that a "futures commission merchant" (FCM) can deposit customer virtual currency at to "a bank, trust company, or another FCM, or with a clearing organization that clears virtual currency futures." Moreover, the CFTC warns FCMs that they need to keep any such deposits in accounts clearly marked as customer funds, and will not allow gains in one account to make up for losses in another. Effectively, the guidance seems most determined that customer crypto funds remain safe and untouched, barring FCMs from trading such funds in order to make collective gains. How big of a problem FCM trading of crypto deposits has shown itself to be goes unaddressed, but you can certainly imagine some catastrophic results of a crypto futures dealer deciding to play some volatile markets using crypto funds. The CFTC has been busy trying to assemble a holistic framework for crypto assets. At the beginning of this month, the commission promised to protect the "burgeoning market" for these assets, an announcement that came immediately after the announcement of their pursuit of BitMEX for operating an unregistered derivatives exchange in the U.S.

  As Bitcoin (BTC) breaks the $12,000 resistance, derivatives markets are flirting with overly excessive bullish sentiment. The futures basis and the options 25% delta skew both reached the same levels seen now on October 12 when BTC briefly tested $11,700 but failed to maintain momentum. What differentiates the current situation from nine days ago is the positions of top crypto traders. On Oct. 12, these traders increased their longs, but during the recent move to $12,000 these professional traders are opening up short positions. Despite this flip in sentiment, traders should not automatically conclude that today’s pump will turn into a flop exclusively based on the longs-to-shorts indicator. For starters, there is no way to know for sure how the top traders are positioned off-exchange. For this reason, derivatives pricing is a better way to assess how bullish or bearish professional traders might be. This indicator focuses on the actual market conditions, whereas both the fear and greed and options put-to-call ratio are backward-looking. Futures markets tend to trade at a slight premium to regular spot exchanges. This event is not exclusive to crypto markets but rather a derivatives effect. The futures contracts premium (or basis) should range between a 5% to 10% annualized rate for healthy markets. Figures above this range denote excessive optimism, as traders bet on much higher prices. In the opposite situation, a negative futures contract premium indicates bearish sentiment. BTC 3-month futures contracts annualized premium. Source: Skew The above chart shows how the basis indicator has been flirting with over-optimistic levels, similar to what happened on October 12. Traders should not mistake optimism with leverage as a positive funding rate on perpetual contracts is also needed to confirm this thesis. The perpetual futures funding rate settles every 8 hours on most exchanges, and a fee is paid from longs (buyers) to shorts whenever the funding...

  PayPal (PYPL) reached $215.87 on Oct. 21, a few dollars past its previous all-time high of $212.38, set on Sept. 2, 2020, according to data from TradingView. This price action came shortly after the payments company announced that it would soon be including crypto assets on its platform. PayPal plans to integrate Bitcoin (BTC), Etheruem (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) offerings into their network in 2021. Opening the trading day at $206.20, PayPal quickly rose past its all-time high, but just barely — breaching the level by about $0.14. The asset subsequently fell lower before breaking the previous high with conviction, rising past $215. Bitcoin has also reaped the benefits of PayPal's news, briefly reaching $12,900— a $1,000 price increase over 24 hours. The price has dipped back to $12,750 at time of publication. Not everyone is impressed, however. Crypto analyst PlanB described the news as anticlimactic in a tweet, noting that customers will not be able to transport their digital assets off of PayPal, based on an FAQ page on the company's website. "Currently, you can only hold the Cryptocurrency that you buy on PayPal in your account," the page says. "Additionally, the Cryptocurrency in your account cannot be transferred to other accounts on or off PayPal." PlanB reconsidered his sentiment in a follow-up tweet, noting Bitcoin's price action in response to the development, as well as the potential mainstream crypto access PayPal may add. PlanB is known around the crypto industry for his stock-to-flow model which predicts that Bitcoin's price could rise above $100,000 per coin.

  CasperLabs has raised $14 million in a private validator token sale, with over a dozen investors participating in a round led by Digital Strategies. The company expects to launch its public mainnet in the first quarter of 2021, followed by a public token offering which will exclude U.S. investors. In 2018, CasperLabs raised $14.5 million in an equity Series A round led by Terren Piezer. The original plan provisioned for an Exchange Validator Offering on the BitMax exchange, but the recent announcement makes no mention of the exchange. Casper started out as a scaling solution for Ethereum (ETH), but eventually, the decision was taken to pivot toward building its own proof-of-stake blockchain platform with Turing-complete smart contracts. Thus what started out as a complementary project to Ethereum may soon prove to be one of the dominant smart contract network's main competitors. Casper prides itself on providing a user-friendly blockchain for enterprise users. Its consensus protocol, called Correct By Construction (CBC), was designed by former Ethereum Foundation researcher Vlad Zamfir. Like many Ethereum competitors, it postulates a solution to the well-known blockchain trilemma: Scalability, Security, Decentralization; the assumption being that you can have only two out of three. CasperLabs suggests that the Casper Delta testnet going live this month will be their final testnet before the launch next year. There has been a recent revival of compliance-focused token offerings in the blockchain space, although nothing resembling the ICO frenzy of 2017 and 2018. For instance, Emin Gün Sirer’s Avalanche raised $42 million back in July.

  On Wednesday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced the end of its lawsuit against Kik Interactive. The Canadian messenger app fell afoul of the U.S. regulator for failing to treat its sale of KIN tokens as a securities offering. A district judge confirmed the SEC's view at the end of September, but only today did the court see the final judgment. As a result of today's judgment, Kik will need to pay the SEC $5 million in penalties and keep the commission posted as to any capital raises for the next three years. Given that Kik was a firm in financial dire straits before its initial coin offering (ICO) for KIN, it's an open question as to whether it will survive. Alongside the SEC's victory over Telegram in a similar ruling, many commentators have seen recent court decisions as putting an end to end to Simple Agreement for Future Token contracts that were the legal framework for a number of the largest ICOs of recent years.

  The crypto markets are cheering PayPal’s decision to allow its customers to use cryptocurrencies to shop from its vast merchant network. PayPal also revealed that U.S. account holders will be able to buy, sell, and hold cryptocurrencies in the PayPal app. The company plans to extend this service to a few other countries in the first half of 2021. PayPal’s decision has significantly increased the reach of cryptocurrencies. Now many of the company’s 346 million active users will have the options to engage with cryptocurrencies and become investors if they choose. Daily cryptocurrency market performance. Source: Coin360 However, a mass influx of investors into cryptocurrencies is likely to take more time. Ultimately, this move by PayPal proves that companies cannot ignore the rise of digital assets anymore. Although the news is bullish, a vertical rally may not materialize immediately. After the initial buying frenzy dies down, the extent of any future correction will confirm whether a new roaring bull market has begun or if institutional investors used this news to lighten up their positions in order to buy at lower levels. Let’s analyze the charts of the top-10 cryptocurrencies and spot the critical levels to watch out for. BTC/USD Bitcoin (BTC) soared above the resistance line of the ascending channel on Oct. 20.

  Очередное крупное обновление ZCash состоится одновременно с первым халвингом 21.10.2020 ForkLog #Zcash (ZEC)#анонимные криптовалюты#халвинг Ориентированная на приватность пользователей криптовалюта ZCash готовится к первому в своей истории халвингу. Его активация состоится ориентировочно 18 ноября на блоке #1 046 400. В результате халвинга награда майнеров снизится с 6,25 ZEC до 3,125 ZEC. Одновременно с этим будет активировано пятое по счету крупное обновление под названием Canopy. Оно запустит фонд развития сети и повысит безопасность ZCash. Грядущие изменения стоящие за разработкой криптовалюты Electric Coin Company (ECC) и Zcash Foundation согласовали в июле. В обновление Canopy включены пять предложений по улучшению блокчейна ZCash (ZIP). Активация ZIP-207 и ZIP-214 приведет к созданию фонд развития сети. Первое предложение определяет механизм поддержки потоков финансирования, распределяемых из части вознаграждения за добавление блока. Второе описывает изменения в правилах консенсуса касательно предлагаемой структуры фонда развития. Новые правила будут действовать в течение последующих четырех лет. С их активацией доля майнеров из средств, получаемых в качестве вознаграждения, составит 80%. Из оставшихся 20% средств 8% будут направляться в фонд грантов, 7% будут зарезервированы за ECC, 5% – за Zcash Foundation. ZIP-211 отключит возможность добавления новых значений в балансы пулов, поддерживающих адреса старого формата (Sprout). Тем самым разработчики делают еще один шаг к полному отказу от старого протокола Sprout (первая итерация Zcash), уменьшая поверхность атаки на сеть и общую сложность исходного кода. ZIP-212 устранит потенциальную компрометацию конфиденциальности, связанной с использованием диверсифицированных адресов. В частности, предложение позволит избежать предположения надежности технологии доказательства нулевого разглашения zk-SNARK. ZIP-215 изменит критерии подлинности Ed25519-подписей, используемых в Sprout-транзакциях, делая их...

  A significant amount of Bitcoin's (BTC) total supply has not moved for more than 10 years, according to data from cryptocurrency analytics data provider Glassnode. During this decade-long interim, 1.8 million Bitcoin (of the current 18.5 million supply) has been locked in dormant Bitcoin addresses. Its cumulative value amounts to more than $23 billion at the time of publication, according to data from Coin360. BTC dormant over 10 years. Source: Glassnode A large portion of these coins may belong to Bitcoin’s mysterious creator, Satoshi Nakamoto — who disappeared from the community in 2011. Nakamoto may own over 1 million of these as-yet untouched assets, which are purported to be lost forever. Despite the large number in stagnation, some previously uncirculated Bitcoin began to move for the first time in May. One wallet containing coins from February 2009 suddenly sent 50 BTC to two different addresses without warning or explanation. People in the blockchain community subsequently suggested three main scenarios: These coins may have belonged to the family of late cryptographer Hal Finney, early developer Martti Malmi or possibly Satoshi Nakamoto themself. This speculation was largely denied by the parties in question, except for Nakamoto, who remains elusive.

  Decentralized finance has quickly risen to prominence, largely driven by the fact that there is over $11 billion of total value locked in the sector. While it makes sense that DeFi — a space characterized by terms such as "yield farming" and "meme tokens" — has captured the majority of the cryptocurrency sector's attention, the concept is also beginning to catch on within the enterprise world. Stefan Schmidt, chief technology officer of Unibright — an enterprise blockchain development company — told Cointelegraph that DeFi concepts can be applied within the enterprise sector where financial assets can be represented by programmable tokens: "In general, the definition of DeFi still isn't clear outside of the enterprise sector." However, according to him, DeFi is "Anything finance related that can be tokenized." 2021 to become the year of enterprise DeFi? Although enterprise DeFi is still in development, Schmidt mentioned that this will start gaining traction very soon, as these concepts will be implemented within enterprise IT tech stacks in 2021. In the meantime, the first step that will set the stage for enterprise DeFi will be facilitating agreements between organizations sharing data. Specifically, these agreements will show that all invoices and other financial transactions are valid and should be processed for payment. "If you don't have a trusted agreement between all parties showing that invoices are valid and should be paid, you can't move forward in the DeFi space," said Schmidt. To enable one possible use case, enterprise blockchain development company Provide has partnered with Unibright in a joint venture. Beginning Oct. 20, Unibright will operate entirely under Provide as both companies aim to unify the technology enterprises require to safely synchronize data. The two companies have been closely collaborating for a year already to help enterprises implement the Baseline Protocol, an OASIS open-source initiative that typically uses the...

  What feels better than watching Bitcoin (BTC) skyrocket on bullish mass adoption news? For hodlers, there aren't too many events in life more satisfying than a trip to the moon... and now the rest of the world seems to be catching on. Bitcoin, it seems, is outstripping Sex. At least when it comes to Reddit users — which may come as little surprise to those of us who spend time on the "Front Page of the Internet." Source: Reddit. Reddit enjoys a massive audience of 440 million users and has been a popular destination for Bitcoin enthusiasts since very early days. But while the Bitcoin audience has swollen dramatically since 2017, Sex has been been somewhat tepid for years. Since Reddit user farmingOnYieldApp made this observation last night, the number of Bitcoin subscribers has increased to 1,707,689, perhaps propelled by the PayPal announcement, while the number of Redditors talking about sex has not changed much at all, and stands at just over 1.69 million. The world really is performing an about-face. Bitcoin is also more popular than the Beatles, who had a terrific '69 of their own — that was the year they released "Come Together" and "I Want You." Sadly, the Liverpudlian pop phenoms only have 118,258 subscribers. The Jesus subreddit is fairly deserted, but if we extrapolate from the Christianity subreddit (258,121 devoted members) Bitcoin may even be more popular than Jesus among Redditors. And speaking of Bitcoin Jesus, the subreddit that supports the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community has only 328,882 followers. Roger Ver will be pinning his hopes on a resurrection of interest in BCH now that PayPal will be supporting the cryptocurrency. Despite its growing popularity, Bitcoin has a long ways to go before it becomes "Mildly Interesting" — this Reddit sub has a remarkable 18.2 million subscribers. Gaming and Sports also make Bitcoin look small and insignificant. Meanwhile, there is a happy ending for those who can’t make up their mind between Bitcoin...

  As Bitcoin's (BTC) price broke through resistance at $12,000, its on-chain transfer volume exceeded 4 million and set a 14-month record high. Source: Glassnode. Unlike exchange volume, on-chain metrics cannot be easily faked or manipulated. To put this in perspective, the total current supply of Bitcoin is 18.5 million. This means that in 24 hours, users transacted 22% of Bitcoin's total current supply. Source: Glassnode. If we examine the 30-day average for this metric, we discover that September 30 marked a 3-year high and the overall trend appears even more prominent. Source: Glassnode. At the same time, the number of addresses with non-zero balances and those holding at least 0.01 BTC has also set new highs. It appears that at least some of the extra volume was generated by bitcoiners diffusing their wealth. It is also possible that this was driven by the influx of new investors testing the waters with small acquisitions. Meanwhile, payments giant, PayPal announced that they will soon allow users in the U.S. to buy, sell, and hold cryptocurrency in their wallets.

  Blockchain firm ConsenSys has made official a collaboration with open-source software laboratory Protocol Labs to integrate Filecoin’s marketplace for data storage with ConsenSys’ Ethereum product stack. According to the announcement, Filecoin’s miners, developers, and users of the network will be able to access ConsenSys' development tools like Infura, MetaMask and others to integrate with Ethereum’s decentralized finance ecosystem. On October 15th, at block 148,888, the Filecoin network launched its public mainnet, featuring a capacity of more than 600 Petabytes of data, as well as 600 active data miners, and 230 projects interacting with the storage protocol. Given these figures, James Beck, global public relations lead at ConsenSys, told Cointelegraph that Ethereum dApps and projects can become “more fully decentralized by storing relevant data on Filecoin rather than relying on a centralized cloud service.” Beck commented on why this integration is critical for Filecoin: “Applications on Ethereum need a decentralized data storage solution, which is why integrations with Infura and MetaMask are critical to enable easy-use for developers to integrate Filecoin/IPFS with Ethereum. (…). ConsenSys Codefi, which provides tokenization, trading, and compliance products for the DeFi sector, has added support for Filecoin and will use its Activate platform to catalyze the launch of the Filecoin network.” Through Infura, Codefi, MetaMask, and other ConsenSys projects, Joseph Lubin, founder and CEO of ConsenSys, stated that developers will “easily integrate IPFS and Filecoin functionality" into their apps and "seamlessly interoperate with Ethereum-based functionality and other apps at every layer of the stack, from the protocol layer to the financial layer with DeFi." On October 21, Codefi Activate also launched Filecoin Storage, a dashboard for the file storage system available through a web app and an API. According to Filecoin, the goal is to make price...

  Bitcoin (BTC) has risen dramatically in market cap over the years, recently taking its place among the top 25 largest companies and assets by market cap. At press time, Bitcoin holds a market value near $240 billion. The coin is 22nd on a list of the top 100 stocks, ETFs, and cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, according to AssetDash. Apple holds the number one spot, standing at a $2 trillion evaluation, followed by Microsoft and Amazon respectively. Bitcoin had a bullish day of price action following significant news from the payment processing network, PayPal. At time of publication, Bitcoin is only a single position behind PayPal, which holds the 21st spot. Bitcoin's market cap is not the highest it has ever been, however. A CoinMarketCap historical snapshot from Dec. 17, 2017, the date of Bitcoin's last all-time high, shows the asset boasting a $320.5 billion market cap at a price of $19,140 per coin. Crypto's pioneering asset continues to be a tremendous rags-to-riches story. Since its launch in 2009, Bitcoin has soared from pennies to thousands of dollars per coin, fighting numerous battles along the way, while igniting an entire industry around itself and its underlying technology.

  21.10.2020 Брайан Брукс: «банки могут стать узлами блокчейнов» Автор Adem Директор Управления контролера денежного обращения США (OCC) Брайан Брукс сказал, что блокчейн изменит работу банков, которые в будущем смогут выступать в качестве узлов. Брайан Брукс (Brian Brooks) высказал свое мнение на мероприятии DC FinTech week, предположив, что банки — «пережиток эры до развития технологий» и столкнутся с существенными изменениями в своей работе из-за блокчейна. Брукс, бывший главный юрист биржи криптовалют Coinbase, предположил, что в будущем банки «напрямую подключатся к блокчейнам и будут рассматривать их как платежную сеть, узлами которой они станут». «Традиционная роль банков» как денежного агрегатора может исчезнуть. Он сказал, что централизация больше не требуется для повышения эффективности или предоставления услуг, например, депозитов или ссуд. «Кто-нибудь хочет взять мои $10 000 и заплатить мне 5%? Алгоритм найдет того, кого это интересует», - сказал Брукс. «Внезапно банку больше не нужно агрегировать все эти деньги. Потому что технология заменяет функцию агрегирования банков». Однако это не означает конец эпохи банков. По словам регулятора, банки продолжат предоставлять фидуциарные услуги, консультации и хранение физических активов. «Я думаю, что банки играют огромную роль. Но им придется измениться. Вместо того, чтобы работать в качестве агрегатора долларов, банки сосредоточатся на услугах с более высокой добавленной стоимостью и высокой прибылью». Напомним, что в сентябре Управление контролера денежного обращения США выпустило разъяснения для американских банков, согласно которым им разрешено хранить деньги для обеспечения стейблкоинов. Ранее Брайан Брукс заявил, что именно пользователи должны решать вопрос о нормах регулирования криптовалют.
