SEC approved cryptocurrency exchange, Circle Invest lists 4 projects: EOS, Stellar[XLM], 0x[ZRX], and Qtum

Goldman Sachs backed SEC regulate cryptocurrency exchange Circle Invest, has added 4 new tokens on its platform. They are EOS, Stellar[XLM], 0x[ZRX] and Qtum. With the addition of 4 more assets, a total of 11 assets can be now traded on Circle Invest.

According to Circle, these new assets can be bought and traded individually, and they are also part of Circle’s “Buy the market” feature, which allows small amounts of all assets to be bought in one go.

These projects were chosen because they met Circle’s Asset Framework, which looks for,

-New infrastructure
-Facilitate open global value exchange
-Give end users additional autonomy and control over access to value and information?
-Peer-reviewed, open source and has a working prototype
-Great team

Addition to the listing of new assets, Circle is also introducing a new feature called “Explore”, which aims to educate existing investors about the new projects. Circle hopes the new feature will bring more traditional investors to the cryptocurrency space including women.
Circle wants more women to invest in Cryptocurrencies

In a news piece covered by Techcrunch, it was revealed that Circle wants more women, as well as Gen Xer’s and Baby boomers to invest in cryptocurrencies. Circle’s answer to the problem was, by educating people on cryptocurrencies would make them invest in it. Circle’s Explore feature is one such feature to bring more people into the cryptocurrency space.

“A lot of the apps that exist on the market are geared toward folks that understand the market already and unfortunately, that tends to be men,” says Divya Agarwalla, Circle’s head of product, to TechCrunch.

How Does a Cryptocurrency Exchange Works?

Cryptocurrency exchanges

Cryptocurrency Exchanges are the places, where the Cryptocurrency coins trading is being carried out. In the previous article on Cryptocurrency Exchange, TechnoMusk listed down some of the best Cryptocurrency Exchanges, where a Cryptocurrency trader can trade in the Cryptocurrency coins. If you are searching for the Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges, follow the page.

Today, we are going to have a detailed on how does a Cryptocurrency Exchange works. What are the aspects involved in their functioning and if someone, is really looking forward to having their own exchange for Cryptocurrency; this article can serve as a beginning step.

Cryptocurrency Exchanges acts as a medium between buyers and sellers

cryptocurrency-trading

Since, the Cryptocurrency Exchange is a platform, where the Cryptocurrency traders do their trading; where the buyers buy the Cryptocurrency coins and sellers sell the Cryptocurrency coins. This is where the Cryptocurrency Exchanges is useful at. Without an exchange, the same selling and buying would not have been possible. By dealing with the Cryptocurrency Exchanges, the buyers and sellers both are well protected from any scams and the exchanges are completely responsible for the protection of assets and fiat of the sellers and buyers.

Various Options availability at Cryptocurrency Exchanges

The Cryptocurrency Exchanges come with various options of their own. There are Cryptocurrency Exchanges, which offer several other salient features, while there are some others, which provide some other set of features and functions. There are some Cryptocurrency Exchanges, which are solely made for the traders and just feature exchange of the coins and act as a peer to peer exchange, while others are made for prompt crypto fiat exchange.

Cryptocurrency Exchanges Functioning

In fact, whenever a person wants to sell Cryptocurrency coins, he places a sell order at a specified price, and whenever a buyer wants to buy the same Cryptocurrency coin at the same price, the order gets executed. In return, the seller is being charged with the service tax and at the same time the buyer is also levied with the service tax for buying, the rate of service tax differs depending on the Cryptocurrency Exchanges. Thus, by just providing a portal where the buyers and sellers can trade against each other, the Cryptocurrency Exchanges work as a protection medium for both of them and in return, they are serviced with their service tax.

The Prices of the Cryptocurrency Coins differs

Cryptocurrency Exchange

It has been seen that the prices for the Cryptocurrency coins vary with the different exchanges. However, this variation is not huge, but since the price variation is dependent on various factors, like the working territory, the demands, and supply for the region, the number of traders at the Cryptocurrency Exchanges, the difference in price can be seen in case of different exchanges. However, always remember that the bigger is the Cryptocurrency Exchange, the more is the market relevant price you are likely to be offered.
Can profits be earned by using various platforms?

Yes, it has been seen that there is a price variation at different Cryptocurrency Exchanges, and this variation may be from 1% to 3%. If the person actively trades on multi-platforms, the person can surely earn some profit, but at the same time, consider the trading fee etc along with the transaction fee, which most of the times, is a hindrance to using multi-platform for Cryptocurrency and thus earning profit from price variation.


However, there may arise a case, when a particular coin is not listed at an exchange, while the person is having it on another Cryptocurrency Exchanges; in such a case, as soon as that particular coin is listed on the exchange the price variation can allow you in earning quite a handsome profit. Thus, opting for the Cryptocurrency Exchanges based on the availability of the coins is also a trick to get some extra benefits.

The Cryptocurrency Exchanges are just a medium to offer you a secure and safe way to do trading in various Cryptocurrencies. Also offering a way to hold your assets for a longer time, it allows you to deal with the Cryptocurrency coins as and whenever required.

Ik kreeg net een mailtje van Kraken

We are pleased to announce that Kraken will list two new digital assets – Cardano (ADA) and Quantum (QTUM). Trading starts on Friday, September 28. Get all the details on our blog!

Coinbase gaat ook meer crypto toevoegen,

Coinbase Looks to Expand Its Selection of Coins with New Listing Process

U.S. cryptocurrency broker and exchange operator Coinbase have announced that they are adopting a new process for listing cryptocurrencies. According to the official announcement, the new approach will allow Coinbase to list more new cryptocurrencies, but the company’s services for the new coins could be limited to selected jurisdictions where they are able to guarantee compliance. Until now, Coinbase offered global support for all of the coins listed on its platform.

Developers of digital assets can now send a free application for a listing on Coinbase, which will be evaluated against the company’s digital asset framework.

So far, Coinbase has been rather conservative with the selection of digital assets they offer to their customers – currently, they only support Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Ethereum Classic.

With the new approach, the number of coins available on Coinbase could increase dramatically:

“With this shift in process, our customers can expect us to list most assets over time that meet our standards. Because listing announcements will become more frequent, we expect to publicly announce the addition of new assets only at or near the time of public launch across one or more Coinbase products. While this is a change from our earlier process of pre-announcing far in advance, we will still announce early enough to allow for sufficient liquidity on our exchange and an orderly market bootup process.”

In July, Coinbase said that they were exploring XLM, ADA, ZEC, ZRX and BAT as possible additions to their platform. With the company’s new, less conservative approach towards adding new coins, speculation about new listings is sure to become an even louder topic in the cryptocurrency community.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Jumps 20% After Bitmain Files for Its IPO

The biggest winner of the crypto mining giant's IPO might just be Bitcoin Cash.

Chinese crypto mining giant Bitmain has filed IPO documents with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, revealing more about the inner-workings of the much-talked-about company.

According to the IPO filing, which has a number of redacted sections, Bitmain had revenues of $2.8 billion in the first half of 2018 and currently has a 74.5% share of the global crypto mining equipment market. This dominance has ultimately driven the company to a staggering 328% yearly revenue growth and significant ownership of the global hashrates for both Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

The filing reveals that Bitmain holds $887 million in cryptocurrency assets, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dash making up roughly 28% of the company’s assets. This total accounts for the depreciation of $102.7 million over the last 6 months. Bitmain notes that a majority of these holdings were earned from the sale of mining hardware, as the company offers the option to pay in crypto at checkout.

According to previously leaked documents, Bitmain has 1,021,316 BCH, which it purchased at an average price of $869. While this represented a total holding of around $887 million at the time of the statement, BCH has since fallen in value to $520, which means that Bitmain has suffered a ~$350 million loss in a little over a quarter.

However, given that Bitmain still holds a sizeable stake in BCH, the Bitcoin fork stands to benefit from the upcoming IPO.

“It has been no secret that Bitmain holds massive amounts of BCH, but now that they are going public they are going to fill their already immense treasure chest with more money, and I’m confident a good chunk of it will go towards the development of BCH. Exciting times ahead for Roger and Jihan,” said Marouane Garcon, managing director of crypto-to-crypto derivatives platform Amulet.

As a result of the IPO filing, the price of BCH surged 20% to over $542. Bitcoin Cash’s market cap is currently hovering around $9 billion, making it the 4th largest cryptocurrency in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100).

Over $80 million laundered through 46 exchanges, one exchange stands out

With cryptocurrencies came the one issue that law enforcers across the globe will spend sleepless nights trying to keep up. Money laundering is that one thing that was given a lifeline by cryptocurrencies.

According to a research done by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) together with a London-based blockchain forensics company, it has been revealed that over $80 million laundered through 46 exchanges in just two years. The amount discovered can be higher considering that the research only reviewed around 2,500 suspicious wallet address

Although 46 exchanges were responsible to move and sanitize the money using cryptocurrencies, ShapeShift has been particularly conspicuous along the money laundering trail. Unfortunately, law enforcement agencies have a hard time pinning the exchange on a hard wall due to regulatory constraints.

In one notable case, criminals who distorted money using the WannaCry ransomware and which is suspected to originate from South Korean hackers, used ShapeShift, an online crypto exchange, to convert bitcoin and ether to Monero, a privacy-focused coin. Once the criminals changed to Monero their trail was a dead end for authorities.

Apart from extortion criminals, the over $80 million laundered through 46 exchanges came from scams and has been traced to the online exchange. In another example, Starscape Capital promised its investors that they will get returns after the investors deposited ether into an anonymous wallet. After the firm raised more than $2 million, the worst happened. It went dark. WSJ traced the anonymous wallet where the ether was deposited and found that it sent the millions to two separate exchanges – KuCoin and ShapeShift. The latter received $517K which was converted to Monero.

WSJ also revealed that ShapeShift has so far “processed nearly $9 million of the suspect funds, more than any other exchange with U.S offices”

Bittrex, a U.S based cryptocurrency exchange, although it claims to “follow federal guidelines,” was captured in the research to have witnessed $6.3 million from apparent criminal activity flow in and out of the exchange. Some of that was confiscated by law enforcement agencies.

“Europol, the European policing agency, has investigated several cases in which criminals used ShapeShift,” noted WSJ adding that “U.S authorities also are keenly aware of ShapeShift’s role in exchanging suspicious funds.”

However, Veronica McGregor, chief legal officer, Shapeshift, disclosed that the firm plans to “start requiring users to provide identification starting Oct. 1.”

In all the cases investigated, criminals preferred using Monero to cover their trails. After the crypto gets out of Monero it can be converted to fiat or exchanged with other cryptocurrencies.

With many virtual currency exchanges flouting their adherence to federal laws concerning money laundering, the question of whether “they are subject to them hasn’t been tested.”

Do you think the over $80 million laundered through 46 exchanges could have been avoided if only global AML regulations are adopted?

Winklevoss’ Gemini Crypto Exchange Secures Insurance Coverage for Custodied Assets

Cryptocurrency exchange and custodian Gemini Trust Company, LLC (Gemini) has secured insurance coverage for custodied digital assets from lending services firm Aon, according to a press release published Oct. 3.

Founded in 2014 in New York by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, Gemini is now the 50th largest digital currency exchange by 24 hour adjusted trade volume, according to data from CoinMarketCap.

Per the press release, Gemini’s digital insurance coverage will complement the already available Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)-insured U.S. dollar deposits. Yusuf Hussain, Gemini’s Head of Risk, said:

“Consumers are looking for the same levels of insured protection they’re used to being afforded by traditional financial institutions. Educating our insurers not only allows us to provide such protections to our customers, but it also sets the expectation for consumer protection across the crypto industry.”

In July, Aon claimed to occupy 50 percent of the cryptocurrency insurance market, expecting to see more crypto-specific protections catering to the industry. Another insurance brokerage company, Marsh & McLennan, reportedly said that 2018 had been “brisk” for crypto-insurers, revealing that it had formed its first-ever team dedicated to broker policies for blockchain startups.

Last month, Gemini exchange announced that former Chief Information Officer of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Robert Cornish had joined the company. At Gemini, Cornish is responsible for leading technology initiatives and monitoring the deployment of Nasdaq’s SMARTS Market Surveillance technology, which will let Gemini control all of its order books and Gemini Auctions.

In April, Gemini revealed that it would begin offering crypto block trading outside of their regular order books. Investors that want to trade on the Gemini Block Trading marketplace will be able to buy and sell large amounts of cryptocurrencies.

In December last year, Gemini partnered with the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) to launch Bitcoin (BTC) futures, which let them bring the traditional market instruments into the crypto space.

Binance Delists Four Coins For User Protection After Changing Listing Fee Policy To Support Charity

Binance made more important announcements for the crypto space just recently.

On their official Medium channel, the biggest exchange in the world announced that it took the decision to make a change to their listing fee policy.

Binance donates fees to charity

“Starting immediately, and going forward, we will make all listing fees transparent and donate 100% of them to charity,” Binance wrote.

It seems that project teams will be the ones who will propose the number that they would like to provide for a listing fee and this will be called a donation.

There will not be any minimum required listing fee involved in the process.

This change comes to support even more the exchange’s initiatives related to charity, and it will also make sure to increase the use of blockchain for “greater good” as the official blog post revealed on Medium.

Binance also announced that more changes are on their way soon.

The exchange says that “it will continue to use the same high standard for the listing review process. A large donation does not guarantee or in any way influence the outcome of our listing review process.”

Binance reviews listed coins

Today, Binance published a new statement, and it seems that the exchange is taking another step to try and protect its customers.

The exchange started to conduct regular reviews of various coins that if currently offers.

In order to prevent their customers from making a bad investment, the exchange decided to conduct reviews of listed coins periodically and to remove the ones that have a standard that drops below a certain level.

As a result, Binance decided to delist four cryptos.

These include Triggers (TRIG), Bytecoin (BCN), Iconomi (ICN), and ChatCoin (CHAT).

The cryptos will reportedly be delisted at 2018/10/12 10:00 AM (UTC).

It is important to note that their withdrawals from the exchange will still be possible until 2018/11/12 10:00 AM (UTC).

After the announcement, the cryptos mentioned above have already experienced serious price drops.

For user protection, Binance is also implementing a much stricter listing process.

“Everything is Fine” Says Bitfinex as it Suspends Deposits While Withdrawal Complaints Mount

Bitfinex has apparently temporarily paused USD deposits, expecting the situation “to normalize within a week.”

That’s just days after it was revealed they had secured a bank account with HSBC in a roundabout way through an entity called Global Trading Solutions.

When this account was secured remains unclear, with HSBC probably not aware of the arrangement previously.

Bitfinex suspends dollar deposits, October 2018.

“The recent delays we have experienced are due to a change in banking relations by our finance processor,” a customer support representative from Bitfinex publicly said, after adding that “fiat finance at Bitfinex is working just fine.”

“We have released a response to let our communities know that everything is fine,” the rep said, with both answers being in response to customer complaints of fiat withdrawal delays.

One customer says he’s been waiting six months. Others claim they’ve been waiting for weeks, with an entire mega-thread previously directed at just withdrawal complaints.

Bitfinex, moreover, is seeing a premium over other exchanges. A premium that has now jumped to $100 with bitcoin’s price on Bitfinex at $6,320, while on Coinbase it stands at $6,220.

Bitcoin’s price across exchanges, October 2018.

A premium that may attract more risky traders, but there is an echo of MT Gox prior to its filing for bankruptcy in 2014, with questions raised regarding how Bitfinex plans to cover half a billion dollars that have been seized by the police.

The exchange, moreover, clearly can’t secure a bank account due to a banking blockade following a fine by CFTC in 2016.

They therefore have to move the fiat in a stealth manner through third party “finance processors” which every 3-6 months have their bank account cut-off.

Making operations very difficult. So raising the question as to why exactly they continue running the exchange rather than closing it off or start all over again considering that they clearly can’t move fiat around without great difficulty.

If it is indeed the case that Bitfinex is solvent, as they recently said, then it’s difficult to see why they’re continuing to operate in stealth.

The only evidence of solvency they’ve provided, however, is their cold wallet, which has circa 140,000 btc. A number that tells us pretty much nothing without knowing how much btc they owe their customers.

MT Gox, for example, had 200,000 bitcoins when they went bankrupt, but still were very much bankrupt at the time because they owed one million bitcoins.

Thus there is no evidence whatever that Bitfinex is not in a similar position, while of course there is no evidence to say they are besides the now increasing fiat withdrawal complaints.

They further argue they have “low operating costs,” but MT Gox was also making plenty of “profits” with that argument used at the time just before they went under.

The Bitfinex rep might however be right and perhaps everything is indeed fine, but in the circumstances we have no choice but to say that it would be wise to stay as far away from Bitfinex as you can.

Okex Announces Delisting of Bytecoin Days After Binance Delisting

Now that all of the top cryptocurrencies are going in the red, it will be interesting to see how the altcoin market respond. Bytecoin is not let out as the cryptocurrency is getting hammered all across the board.

OKEx has announced that it will remove Bytecoin $BCN from its exchange just days after Binance delisting. That is not completely surprising, as the cryptocurrency community has always been divided as far as this project is concerned.

Per OKEx announcement, they have monitored Bytecoin and found that the project ‘has been exposed to a critical technical issue that has been left unhandled’.

OKEx will delist all $BCN pairs at 11AM UTC on October 12. All users should cancel their Bytecoin orders. If BCN orders are not canceled in time, ‘the order will be canceled by the system and your asset will be credited to your trading account.’

Customers with $BCN tokens on the OKEx exchange should withdraw before November 1. After that date, OKEx will not support withdrawals anymore.

These are not fun times to be a Bytecoin holder, by the look of things. An ongoing battering across the market has become apparent over the past few hours. Binance delisted Bytecoin (BCN) which resulted in the crypto crashing and witnessing a massive drop in its prices to a low of $0.001696. Before its delist it was traded at $0,0022.

Although steep downtrends are nothing new in this volatile industry, it seems a lot of people are panicking to sell their BCN before they lose access to one of the biggest liquidity sources.
