Coinbase UK gets e-money license and enables Faster Payments Scheme

Today, CEO at Coinbase UK Zeeshan Feroz informed users of the bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchange that the company has now secured an e-money license from the United Kingdom’s financial regulators. Additionally, they are the first bitcoin exchange to support the UK’s Faster Payments Scheme, a 24/7 real-time payment system which would allow near-instant transfers from Coinbase to UK bank accounts.

The e-money license requires all Coinbase e-money operations to meet strict rules enforced by the FCA and the Payment Services Directive. For exchange customers, this will mean a better experience through possible new partnerships along with a seamless and easier to use account dashboard.

Coinbase UK gets e-money license and enables Faster Payments Scheme
Zeeshan Feroz, CEO Coinbase UK

All e-money operations have safeguards and operational standards at equivalence with other regulated financial institutions. An example is the segregation of client funds, where all customer fiat balances will be separated from Coinbase company funds and kept in separate bank accounts.

Mr. Feroz said, “our e-money license will extend beyond the UK to 23 countries within the EU. We believe that this is an important step towards our commitment to making cryptocurrency accessible to everyone.”

Regarding the UK Faster Payments Scheme, banks are replacing EU-based SEPA accounts for UK customers, and the Faster Payments Scheme will benefit users by offering much faster bank transfers. Coinbase UK will start with a pilot for its small number of institutional users. During the next month, they said it will be implemented for all UK customers.

Hedera Hashgraph Council announces next-gen public ledger

The Hedera Hashgraph Council today announced plans for a new, next-generation distributed public ledger, the Hedera hashgraph platform, to enable anyone to easily develop lightning fast, secure, fair, globally distributed applications. Over the last 20 years, as the internet has evolved, trust has been eroded and control centralized in the hands of a few. Identity theft, cybercrime, spam, hacking, election manipulations, and digital spying have become the costs of living our lives online. Today, Hedera aims to change that with the release of a simple, powerful platform with robust API support to make it easy for developers to build global, distributed applications.

“We need a more trusted, secure and equitable online world,” said Dr. Leemon Baird, inventor of the hashgraph algorithm. “You should be able to carve out a piece of cyberspace to create a shared world, be confident when interacting with others, feel safe online, control how you collaborate, and share only the information you want. Today we lay out the roadmap for how Hedera will make that happen.”

Lightning Fast Results

With the unveiling of the Hedera hashgraph platform, the Council today also released speed test results, conducted on multiple Amazon Web Services (AWS) instances. The tests focused on achieving consensus on transaction order and timestamps for instances distributed across five continents. The Hedera network was able to handle hundreds of thousands of transactions per second, with time to finality within a few seconds. Hedera uses verification software that runs on the computer’s graphics card GPU to verify one million signatures per second.

Such speed is crucial to enable use cases such as distributed gaming, stock and other markets, and micropayments.

Gabe Leydon, CEO of MZ (formerly Machine Zone), a multi-billion dollar application and game developer, today also announced that it will build distributed applications on top of hashgraph, he said:

“Our mission is to enable the next generation of many-to-many applications. By building on top of Hedera hashgraph, our applications will be able to be deployed in a peer-to-peer environment, with complete fairness, transparency, and visibility. We believe Hedera is revolutionary and will change everyone’s expectations of how fair and fast applications and gaming can be.”

Stability and Decentralization Ensured Through the HHC

Public distributed ledgers aim to provide decentralized systems, which anyone can participate in. But a recent peer-reviewed study, entitled Decentralization in Bitcoin and Ethereum,” studying some of the largest networks between 2015- 2017, found the opposite has become true. The top four Bitcoin mining operations and top three Ethereum ones control more than 50% of the world’s hash rate, and the entire blockchain of both systems “is determined by fewer than 20 mining entities,” due to both the Proof-of-Work requirements, but also to the lack of a governance model that ensures continued decentralization over time.

Hedera aims to address both of these concerns by separating governance from consensus. The Consensus Model ensures that the Hedera network will expand to many millions of nodes voting on the order of transactions in a highly distributed network.  The crypto economics of the platform helps to ensure the continued decentralization of consensus voting.  Hedera expects to enable anyone to run a node without having to pay for a mining rig or large amounts of electricity. Hedera will be governed by a council of leading corporations and organizations across multiple industries, bringing needed experience in process and business expertise.

Membership criteria are designed to reflect a range of industries and geographies with respected, trusted brands and market positions. The proposed governance model will ensure that no single entity has complete control and that no group of members has undue influence over the body as a whole. Hedera will use a combination of technical and legal controls to give the governing council mechanisms to promote stability and ensure the network will never fork.

Regulatory Compliance

The Hedera technical framework includes an Opt-In Escrow Identity mechanism that gives users a means to bind verified identities to otherwise anonymous cryptocurrency wallets, with the aim of providing governments the necessary oversight to ensure regulatory compliance. This is completely optional, and each user can decide what kinds of credentials, if any, to reveal.  Hedera intends to work with governments to bring the same level of security to public ledgers as is currently present in the financial system.

Distributed Ledger Foundation

In conjunction with the announcement, today the Distributed Ledger Foundation was also launched. The Distributed Ledger Foundation will sponsor projects on behalf of its members, with an initial project focused on a free and fair voting initiative.

Live Stream of Tonight’s Event

More details on Hedera will be unveiled at a sold-out event tonight in New York City. The event can be live streamed starting at 6pm ET.

Vision

The Hedera Hashgraph Council will provide governance for an open, fast and fair decentralized public ledger built on the hashgraph consensus algorithm. Governance will be maintained by a council of up to 39 known and reputable global organizations, committed to the support and evolution of a stable, predictable public ledger infrastructure

KYC and compliance protocol traceto.io integrating with Kyber Network

Kyber Network, a decentralized exchange service that enables instant conversion of crypto-assets with guaranteed liquidity today said they will be utilizing and integrating with traceto.io, the decentralized Know Your Customer (KYC) network.

Traceto.io is a leading company promoting more sound KYC checks within the blockchain sphere. This company has identified some important issues within current KYC systems such as the false assumption that anonymity overrides anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CTF) regulations. In response, they have brought together experienced personnel to build foolproof KYC processes, promoting stronger communities of transparency and responsibility.

The Kyber collaboration with traceto.io started during the Kyber Network Initial Coin Offering in 2017. During that time the traceto.io parent company helped the Kyber team automate its KYC ICO process, ensuring they enlisted reputable and trustworthy individuals into the initial stages of its platform.

The Kyber Network team said:

“Both our companies have come incredibly far since that initial collaboration, and we are overjoyed to be working with this team again. As soon as the traceto.io platform is up and running, we will be integrating with them to enhance our KYC program, ensuring that Kyber Network meets the necessary regulatory obligations.”

Additionally, it was announced that Mr. Chionh Chye Kit, the Managing Director of Cynopsis and CEO of traceto.io, will be joining the Kyber Network Board of Advisors. The Kyber Network CEO, Dr. Loi Luu and Executive Advisor, Mr. Wong Lee Hong, will also be joining traceto.io in advisory positions.

US bitcoin exchange Gemini proposes Virtual Commodity Association

The U.S. registered bitcoin and ether exchange Gemini today put forth proposals for a new self-regulatory organization which would be called the Virtual Commodity Association (VCA), for the United States virtual currency industry, specifically virtual commodity exchange platforms and custodians.

Founders of Gemini, Tyler, and Cameron Winklevoss noted, “we believe adding an additional layer of oversight on virtual commodity cash markets, in the form of self-regulation, is important for consumer protection and to ensure the integrity of these markets.”

They envision the VCA to be a non-profit, independent regulatory organization that does not operate any markets, will not be a trade association, will not provide regulatory programs for security tokens or security token platforms, and will be in compliance with global standards and best practices for SROs.

Below is their outlined suggestions.

PURPOSE
  • Foster financially sound, responsible, and innovative virtual commodity markets through a system of industry-sponsored standards, sound practices, and oversight that promotes price discovery, efficiency, and transparency.
  • Incentivize the detection and deterrence of manipulative and fraudulent acts and practices, including partnering with regulators and particularly the CFTC to share or refer information, as appropriate.
  • Require member firms to commit in writing, upon joining VCA, to operating their virtual commodity markets in compliance with Sound Practices, described below; and provide sanctions based accountability program to compel ongoing member compliance.
STRUCTURE – MEMBERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE
  • Open for membership to virtual commodity platforms, over-the-counter (OTC) trading firms, and other trading facilities acting as counterparties that:
    • Provide an all-to-all platform or venue, available to U.S. participants, for transacting in the spot virtual commodity markets; or
    • Provide OTC or off-exchange services, available to U.S. participants, for transacting in the spot virtual commodity markets.
    • When applicable, the entities must otherwise be in compliance with and have obtained relevant licenses required to operate a business that involves holding customer fiat funds and the custody of customer virtual commodities.
  • To be governed by a Board of Directors – Board structure to come (including a required number of independent directors); funded by member fees.
  • To consider other potential member types in the future; website to come.
SOUND PRACTICES – ANNUAL CERTIFICATION BY MEMBERS
  • Members shall certify to VCA, annually, that they are in compliance with “Sound Practices,” including:
    • Responsible Financial Management – Establish a transparent program of financial responsibility and controls for members to ensure confidence in the fiscal soundness of members and to encourage customer confidence.
    • Transparency; Conflicts of Interest – Provide appropriate transparency regarding bids, offers, executions, and other relevant data to the public; adopt policies to avoid conflicts of interest.
    • Rules-Based Markets – Maintain and enforce a system of marketplace conduct rules; and implement policies and procedures to respond to and address customer concerns and complaints.
    • Cyber and Information Security; Recordkeeping – Implement and maintain current best practices with respect to cybersecurity, information security, and recordkeeping.
    • Surveillance – Monitor and surveil markets to detect and deter (and where appropriate, discipline) manipulative and fraudulent acts and practices.
    • Information Sharing – Agree to enter into information sharing agreements for the purposes of marketplace surveillance with other members and with regulated exchanges and trading platforms that list products based on virtual commodities.
    • Cooperation With Regulators – Among other things, agree to report instances of manipulative and fraudulent conduct to the CFTC and other regulators as appropriate.
    • Legal Analysis – Agree to perform proper diligence and legal analysis when determining the legal status of a virtual commodity for listing and trading in order to avoid listing and trading security tokens, unless the member has obtained necessary licenses for security tokens.
PRIMARY FUNCTION OF THE VCA AND ITS BOARD
  • Facilitate the periodic examination of members and issue a report indicating whether the member is adhering to its primary obligations and complying with Sound Practices;
  • Where members fail to comply with Sound Practices, impose agreed upon sanctions; and
  • Interact with and educate regulators (such as the CFTC or the SEC) and legislators.
US bitcoin exchange Gemini proposes Virtual Commodity Association
Founders of Gemini, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss

The Winklevoss twins concluded their declaration stating:

“The SRO approach has historically worked to protect and police various markets. For example, the National Futures Association is an SRO for the U.S. derivatives industry and is a model for how the VCA can work together with the CFTC to provide additional oversight to virtual commodity cash markets. The promise of virtual commodities and their impact on the future will be profound — but individuals and institutions need to feel safe and secure when transacting.”

“We believe a thoughtful SRO framework that provides a virtual commodity regulatory program for the virtual commodity industry is the next logical step in the maturation of this market. We look forward to engaging with industry leaders, participants, regulators, and legislators on this proposal.”

Dcntral and SmartMesh partner to deliver cyber secure Mesh Networks

Dcntral.ai, a Boulder, Colorado software provider offering a blockchain and AI-based cyber secure transactive platform for edge computing environments, announced today that it has established a partnership with the SmartMesh Foundation, which has created a next-generation Internet protocol enabling smart mesh networking solutions. Dcntral is founded by David A. Cohen, a pioneer in decentralized software platforms with co-founder and internet protocol pioneer James Barry.

Dcntral’s platform will be integrated into SmartMesh’s MeshBox platform, which enables the cyber secure exchange of value and automated transactions for Internet of Things (IoT) networks. The SmartMesh protocol and MeshBox technology enable smart devices to connect to each other without internet or telecom services through self-organizing Mesh networks. This will allow users to connect to P2P networks with their smartphones.

The Dcntral solution is deployed using a unique combination of patent-pending next-generation cybersecurity features that it calls entry-to-endpoint security which includes enhanced scalable blockchains; software-defined security; and artificial intelligence used to deliver smart contracts between machines, humans, devices, and systems within edge computing environments. Our SDKs will be used to provide critical business and operational services within privacy critical, life-critical, and mission-critical environments such as smart cities, smart grids, healthcare, connected vehicles, supply chains, and now Mesh Networks.

“With SmartMesh’s MeshBox technology, we can now truly extend our reach to far edge computing environments in areas without internet service which provides much-needed internet and transaction service to users in remote areas, providing a valuable addition to SmartMesh’s customers,” says David A. Cohen, Founder, and CEO of Dcntral.ai.

“Integrating Dcntral’s platform into SmartMesh Ecosystem will add a secure layer to SmartMesh.

I am looking forward to working with David on building our ecosystem together in the areas of Mesh Networking, IoT, Edge Computing, Industry 4.0, Cybersecurity, the Machine Economy and beyond!” added Henry Wang, CEO of SmartMesh.

Cryptocurrency exchange WEX adds new BTC bet feature

WEX, a cryptocurrency exchange that last year took over and resumed business operations from BTC-E after they were shut down has added a new community bitcoin betting feature for users of the platform. It’s a totalizator where the bitcoin exchange rate against USD is used.

Every 5 minutes, the BTC/USD exchange rate is fixed at the last price (base price), and users can bet on the rise or fall of the exchange rate in relation to the base price. After the 5-minute interval, the bets are closed, and a new 5-minute bet acceptance period with a new base price begins.

After the betting period is over, the waiting stage of the drawing begins. It lasts 5 minutes. If there are enough participants, the drawing is made after 15 minutes of waiting. At this stage, the BTC/USD exchange rate is also fixed at the last price, and the drawing is made. If a user placed an up bet and the price went up, they will receive a prize as a percentage of their bet to the total amount of up bets. In this case, the prize pool is the sum of all down bets. The same algorithm is applied to down bets, but vice versa.

1.1 Interface

The interface consists of the Current bets section and a Past bets table.

1.1.1 Current bets

id (1) – unique drawing number
base price (9810.101) – this price is fixed at the last price at the beginning of each drawing
current price (9810.201) – the current price changes according to the last price in real time
up bet (0 BTC) – the sum of all up bets
down bet (0 BTC) – the sum of all down bets
the remaining time (5 min) – time until the end of the betting period, when bets are accepted

– Bets are only accepted in the active drawing in the Current bets section.
– The minimum bet amount is 0.001 BTC.
– The maximum betting amount in both directions is 10 BTC.
– You can simultaneously place up and down bets, but in this case, you should note that your balance can decrease by 5% (prize fee) and become negative.
– All your bets for the current drawing are displayed in the Your current bets section.
– At the end of the betting period, the current drawing goes into the waiting stage. You can see it in the Past bets table.
– You CAN NOT CANCEL your current bets.

1.1.2 Past bets

id – unique drawing number
period – drawing the start, end of the period when bets are accepted, drawing end
base price – this price is fixed at the last price at the beginning of each drawing
current price – the current price changes according to the last price
bets count – the number of all bets, the number of all up bets, the number of all down bets
sum – the sum of all bets, the sum of all up bets, the sum of all down bets

1.1.3 Statuses of past periods

active – bets are being accepted
waiting – the winner of the drawing is being determined
ended – the drawing ended, and the prize pool was distributed
canceled – the drawing was canceled due to lack of participants or if the base price was equal to the last price

1.2 Drawing

– Provided that there were no bets in the drawing, the drawing is canceled.
– Provided that the bets were placed only in one direction (only up or only down bets), the drawing is canceled, and all bets are automatically refunded on the user accounts without any commission.
– If the condition of placing at least one bet in both directions by the end of the betting period is fulfilled, the drawing enters the stage of price fixing.
– The determination of winners is done by fixing the last price at the end of the drawing time.
– Prize money is automatically distributed on the winner’s accounts.
– The calculation of the prize pool is done automatically depending on the bet amount in percentage correlation.
– The commission is 5% of the prize amount. It is calculated and automatically deducted from the prize amount.

1.3 Description of transactions in the transaction history

– betting (transaction relates to the Bitcoin Betting section), period#1 (unique drawing number), bet#1 (unique bet number in the drawing) up bet (bet direction: up bet (in this case) or down bet), base price 9850.998 (base price)

– betting (transaction relates to the Bitcoin Betting section), period#1 (unique drawing number), *** (“win”, or “not enough players”, or “last price equal to base price”) refund (bet refund in the case of a win or if the drawing was not made), bet#1 (unique bet number in the drawing)

– betting (transaction relates to the Bitcoin Betting section), period#1 (unique drawing number), prize 0.001 BTC (prize amount) -5% fee. (service commission) prize pool 0.001 BTC (prize pool) (100%) (the percentage of your bet to the total sum of bets)
