Binance Turns Focus to Compliance Amid Planned Fiat Expansion Binance Turns Focus to Compliance Amid Planned Fiat Expansion
April 15, 2019 6:21 PM Binance came out of nowhere in 2017 to become the world?s biggest cryptocurrency exchange. Its explosive growth has been fueled by a strategy of avoiding the regulatory headaches that go with the conventional banking system, and focusing instead on the freewheeling world of crypto-to-crypto trading. Now, Binance is wading into the world of government-issued money?raising the question of whether it can keep growing without getting singed by regulators. The latest sign of Binance?s new focus came last week when the company announced it would hire CipherTrace, a California-based business that helps companies and law enforcement trace suspicious cryptocurrency movements.

Binance enlists CipherTrace to boost compliance, expand into new markets Binance enlists CipherTrace to boost compliance, expand into new markets
April 12, 2019 5:21 PM From his throne atop Mt. Crypto, Changpeng Zhao surveys his empire, and whispers to himself, ?It isn?t enough.? To hear CoinDesk tell it, Binance, the world?s leading cryptocurrency exchange, isn?t just at the top of its game but the  game?its brilliance  unrivaled by any company in the history of cryptokind. A bit much? It?s not an unpopular take. Hell, some heavyweight crypto pundits say Binance is so damn big and rich, it only has to play nice with global regulators if it wants . And, well, it seems like Binance wants. But on its own terms, of course. On Thursday, the company announced it has hired CipherTrace? the Silicon Valley-based cryptocurrency intelligence solutions company known for its anti-money laundering and blockchain forensics operations.

Bitstamp Granted BitLicense, Will Expand Crypto Services in US - CoinDesk Bitstamp Granted BitLicense, Will Expand Crypto Services in US - CoinDesk
April 09, 2019 4:30 PM Bitstamp, one of Europe?s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, is looking to expand its U.S. operations, having just been issued New York?s latest virtual currency license. The New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) awarded Bitstamp the 19th BitLicense Tuesday, allowing the exchange to offer bitcoin, litecoin, bitcoin cash, ether and XRP trading pairs to the state?s residents. Bitstamp first applied for the license in June 2015, when NYDFS created the state?s landmark law. The exchange was among the first set of 22 applicants for the license, CEO Nejc Kodri? told CoinDesk. While the regulator only issued a handful of licenses in its first few years, awarding BitLicenses ? which NYDFS has recently taken to calling ?virtual currency licenses? instead ? appears to be ?becoming more routine to them,? Kodri? said. ?This year we are the that was granted so I guess the pace is picking up.?

January 22, 2019 10:09 AM First things first, Yes Malcolm Lerider has announced he has left NEO. Nobody knows exactly why, just that he has gone to another job.

Ripple Price Prediction: Ripple can rise on fundamental expansion | Smartereum Ripple Price Prediction: Ripple can rise on fundamental expansion | Smartereum
January 17, 2019 7:22 AM Because of the bearish pressure in the market, XRP is currently trading well below the $0.50 mark. This shows that it is down by 2.92% against the USD and down by 0.42% against Bitcoin. According to Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, Ripple is actually providing a fundamental way for the banks and financial institutions to use the blockchain technology. He further added that this enables the use of the cryptocurrency for institutional purposes as well. As there is a fundamental use, the cryptocurrency will increase in value in the future as well. Also, there are many start-ups which will in the future like to use the ripple protocol in order to develop newer solutions as well. This will certainly increase the number of applications of the cryptocurrency.

More Local ATMs Will Soon Dispense Cryptocurrencies - wgbh More Local ATMs Will Soon Dispense Cryptocurrencies - wgbh
January 09, 2019 11:03 PM Bitcoin is coming to a store near you. In fact, check this map?it may already be available at your local deli. Boston-based startup LibertyX rolled out the first Bitcoin ATMs nearly five years ago. Now they?ve moved from hardware to software, partnering with ATM company Genmega to create software that will turn an ordinary ATM into a Bitcoin exchange. All you need is a digital wallet app that can handle Bitcoin, and an ordinary ATM card to convert cash from your bank account into Bitcoin. ATMs that sell Bitcoin and other so-called cryptocurrencies are becoming more and more prevalent on Boston streets. But if you find terms like Bitcoin, blockchain and cryptocurrency strange and confusing, don?t worry. It?s easy to understand by focusing on what cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin can DO, instead of what they are.

IBM, Google, and Amazon Will Likely Expand their Blockchain Exposure in 2019 IBM, Google, and Amazon Will Likely Expand their Blockchain Exposure in 2019
January 09, 2019 4:35 PM We have already turned the calendar from page 2018, and as we dig into 2019, there is an illuminating ray that would perhaps spur a reversal from 2018 pits. After all, it won?t be controversial to say that 2018 was pretty disastrous not only for the digital asset industry but for investors who got in there mostly because of greed. The super gains of 2017 are quickly fading and replacing the excitement as the grim realization that like in any investment, there are no quick riches. Unsurprisingly, the deflation of the aggregate value of digital assets bred this perverse satisfaction from doom-mongers. While it?s hard for many to pick up revolutionary tech at early stages, we can use several metrics to reassure investors that the technology is here for the long haul: the increasing interest from mainstream companies on blockchain.
