  • Ripple’s foray into the world of banking has been marked with several developments and strides that have been demonstrated in the form of products like xVia, xRapid, and xCurrent. In a recent interview, the officials at the San Francisco based cryptocurrency company have revealed a clear picture as to what they want to achieve: taking a cryptocurrency such as XRP into the realm of mainstream banking.Speaking to Cointelegraph, David Schwartz, the Chief Technology Officer [CTO] at Ripple, elucidated on the XRP ledger and its features. The technology visionary stated that the predominant feature of the XRP ledger was its complete decentralization as no individual or organization controlled it. Schwartz went on to add that every participant on the network enforces every single rule and the system is governed by all of its participants, thereby democratizing the network.Schwartz was frank enough to admit that concept of Proof of Work [PoW] has kind of hit a dead but that has still not hampered the developments on the XRP ledger. He stated:“It’s produced actually increasing centralization in systems based on it There’s a lot of work to improve the decentralization and improve the robustness of systems based on distributed agreement protocols.”The CTO went on to say that the contributors on the Ledger have paved the way for more developments to occur, a phenomenon that he expects to continue for a long time.

  • Justin Sun is tweeting again, and this time around, he’s almost bragging about something that could potentially upset the TRX market in a really nice way. Anyone who has been following Justin’s tweets knows about the recent events happening around Tron’s TRONbet. Justin even tweeted and broke the news that over 70 million TRX had been won by users on TRONbet. However, it’s his latest tweets that have people taking even more serious notice.In a tweet, Justin said that Tron was now ahead of Ethereum in terms of daily transactions, something that’s actually true. Despite TRX being the world’s number 11 cryptocurrency, the company, Tron, has been burning the midnight oil trying to make things better and smoother for the token. A few weeks ago, the Tron Virtual Machine (TVM) went live. The Tron network was also migrated from its old ERC20-based system to Tron’s own MainNet. Evidently, those have been quite some nice steps for Tron in the right direction. That’s what got it here.According to Justin’s tweet, Tron was handling about 599,354 transactions on October 18th as compared to Ethereum’s 565,791. From the figures, it’s pretty clear that TRX was ahead of ETH, albeit by a relatively small margin. Justin went on to say that the development was just the beginning, signaling his obviously great optimist in the future of TRX.

  • Mike Novogratz, the founder of Galaxy Digital Holdings and an avid supporter of cryptocurrencies, has said that Tether has nobody but itself to blame for the recent issues they have been facing.Novogratz Addresses Recent Tether FUDBitcoin bull Mike Novogratz believes that Tether (USDT) needs to be more transparent. He was speaking recently at a conference in Frankfurt, and his observations were published in an article on Bloomberg.The billionaire investor, founder of Galaxy Digital Holdings, and former partner at Goldman Sachs said, “I think Tether didn’t do a great job in terms of creating transparency.” He added that the digital asset will need time to regain the lost trust.Tether, a U.S. dollar-backed stablecoin, experienced panic selling earlier Monday based on rumors that many leading exchanges were going to delist the coin. Traders and investors dumped their USDT holdings in favor of Bitcoin and other stable currencies like the Circle-backed USD Coin (USDC) and Gemini USD (GUSD). This led to a 7% drop – from USDT’s Sunday high of $0.995 to a low of $0.925 on Monday.“The concept of stablecoins make sense,” Novogratz said, adding that stablecoins have more of a transactional character than other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. He further mentioned that he would prefer a stable coin like GUSD as it is backed by a U.S.-based bank like State Street to maintain its backup reserves.

  • Money talks. And with a median salary of nearly $85,000 per year, blockchain professionals make more than most, according to Oct. 2018 Glassdoor study. The median U.S. salary is nearly $52,000. So why do crypto and blockchain workers earn 62% more than other American workers?Because companies are mostly hiring people with technical expertise such as coders and analysts. Secondly, most jobs are located in expensive cities which drive higher wages. The top five U.S. locations with the most blockchain openings are:New York, NYSan Francisco, CASan Jose, CAChicago, ILSeattle, WAIn New York, the median pay for software engineers is $104,000. Here are the top five non-U.S. locations with the most blockchain work opportunities:LondonSingaporeTorontoHong KongBerlin“Companies are hiring primarily for technical roles, requiring engineering experience and coding skills, and many of these job openings are centered in cities that are already major talent hubs for technical or financial expertise,” according to Glassdoor’s study. “Both factors are contributing to pay exceeding median salaries elsewhere — another strong indicator of long-term investment.”Such jobs rose 300 percent since last year, rising to 1,775 openings in the U.S. in August 2018. But Asia is seeing a lot of hiring as well. Recruitment firm Robert Walters is seeing a 50% increase in blockchain or crypto jobs in Asia since last year. Thus, it’s no surprise that Singapore and Hong Kong are establishing themselves as the “blockchain islands” of the Far East.

  • On 20th October, the Spanish government announced plans for all cryptocurrency investors to disclose their holdings regardless of the investment being within state boundaries or offshore.The government has decided to take these steps in lieu of several cases of monetary fraudulent activities and plans to put a heavy clamp on it. The plans for the full disclosure was announced by Isabel Celaa, a spokesperson of the Spanish government as well as the Minister of Education and Vocational training. Although the law is still in its proposal stage, several members of the government feel that regulations on the digital assets are the need of the hour.The details of the proposal point to the European nation taking a serious stance on the virtual currency industry. Investors and holders will be asked to reveal all details of their digital currency holding which will be subject to Spain’s 720 disclosure form. The Form 720 is a tax declaration that reports to the Spanish Tax Agency about all the assets that a user possesses.Reports have shown that if any holder fails to disclose any detail properly, he or she will be penalized with a hefty fine of 5000 Euros.The European Union, of which Spain is a part of, had been in the news earlier when it had declared cryptocurrencies can be used as a substitute for money. The EU had said:

  • Ethereum (ETH) core developers have reached a consensus to delay a planned hard fork of the protocol , dubbed “Constantinople,” until January 2019. Ethereum (ETH) core developers have reached a consensus to delay a planned hard fork of the protocol until January 2019, in a meeting Friday, Oct. 19.The fork, dubbed “Constantinople,” was first trialed on Ethereum public testnet Ropsten on Oct. 13, and had been slated to be activated on the main Ethereum blockchain by the end of Oct.-Nov. this year. A testnet is essentially a simulated version of the primary network that allows developers to try out smart contracts or upgrades without having to pay “gas” (computation fees) for their execution.Towards the end of their hour-long meeting yesterday, the devs finally reached a consensus that the Constantinople will at “the earliest” come in late January 2019.During the meeting, one dev quipped it might be less controversial, or “political,” to change the term for the transition from “hard fork” to “update.”

  • A North Korean cyber theft crew dubbed “Lazarus ”, has topped the list of highly successful cryptocurrency hacking since January 2017. In a research carried out by cyber security firm Group-IB, it was discovered that the theft crew had stolen a  total of $571 million in cryptocurrency since February 2017 ; the highest amount of cryptocurrency ever stolen by a single text group. The $534 million Coincheck hack carried out by the group in 2018 played a major role in determining total figure.It is no news that the cryptocurrency space is largely penetrated by hackers and cyber criminals who have succeeded in hijacking a handful of cryptocurrencies over the past years, but unlike most crypto theft, whose identity are left untraceable due to user anonymity, Lazarus is out in the open. Lazarus which is supposedly “state sponsored” is no beginner in the world of cybercrime. In Fact, this theft crew is suspected to be the masterminds behind the server hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment, after which information of great confidentiality was leaked.Following that event, investigations conducted by Kaspersky Lab revealed a dramatic increase in cyber crime, which was interestingly said to be carried out in the same pattern. They include ; sabotage of media stations, financial institutions and manufacturing companies, the crew has also reportedly carried out military espionage campaigns.As Lazarus continues to strengthen its arms in North Korea, exchange hackers in South Korea are also following suit. Although the identity of these criminals are yet to be discovered, a whopping amount of cryptocurrency, worth over $200 million has been lobbied from major cryptocurrency exchanges in 2018.

  • Ripple has been making headlines recently as its premier offering for cross-border payments, xRapid, is making strides towards building the necessary infrastructure for its implementation. This also bodes well for XRP HODLers as the product directly utilizes the liquidity pool offered by the world’s third-largest cryptocurrency.The hype is also backed up by bullish statements made for the advancement of the product by Ripple executives. Cory Johnson, the chief market strategist for Ripple, stated:“Mexico and the Philippines – those are countries where there’s a lot of remittance payments going out of other countries and into Mexico, into Philippines. And there’s a lot of trade in XRP, so I think we’re gonna see a lot of adoption of our products in those countries; we’ve already seen that.”This comes after Ripple partnered with one of the biggest cross-border payment providers in the United States, known as Viamericas. The company offers services in 34 countries, with an established network of inroads into various local banking systems.This was revealed in their brochure detailing how xRapid works, a part of their push to drive the product after it was launched earlier this month. The CEO of Viamericas, Paul Dwyer, stated:

  • Institutional investors, venture capitalists, and other well-heeled entities “in the know” are using a year-long bear market to buy up future technologies for what might turn out to be pennies on the dollar. It Takes Money to Make MoneyYesterday CNBC reported that most of  2018 has been a “deal frenzy” for cryptocurrency and blockchain-related companies as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are reported to have increased by 200 percent. Pitchbook had JMP Securities crunch M&A data the results showed that by the end of 2018 there will have been 145 M&A deals.The data is inclusive of majority investments, partial and full acquisitions but it does not pinpoint the exact dollar amount spent for each deal. JMP did mention that most of the M&As are “relatively small” as the sum is less than $100 million. The uptick in M&As took place as Bitcoin declined to trade nearly 53% below its January price.Interestingly, buyers did not appear deterred by Bitcoin’s fall from $20,000 in January as the $830 billion dollar market capitalization began to disintegrate. In fact, according to Satya Bajpai, the head of blockchain and digital assets investment banking at JMP Securities, “You’re seeing a mispricing of assets.” Bajpai believes that the majority of crypto-startups have token values that “remain correlated to Bitcoin” and this phenomenon “can create an ideal opportunity for strategic acquirers.” Crypto is an Investors SmorgasbordBajpai used the analogy of a “land grab” when describing how the rapid pace of growth and innovation in a new sector compels investors to buy up technology producers instead of attempting to build their own platform. Bajpai explained that “[The M&A route is] expensive, but you get the technology and product immediately. This industry is like a treadmill – the only way to keep up on a treadmill is to keep running by investing in new technology.”
