5  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-05-18] Switzerland is the Most Blockchain-Friendly Country in Europe on: May 18, 2018, 07:07:27 PM
Switzerland First in Ranking of Top 10 Most Blockchain-Friendly Countries in Europe

Switzerland is ranked number one in a list of the top ten European countries for starting a blockchain company, according to a study released by blockchain conference BlockShow Europe 2018.

In the list of best countries for starting a blockchain company, Gibraltar and Malta follow Switzerland in second and third respectively. The study consisted of 48 European countries that were examined for rankings by Initial Coin Offering (ICO) regulations, regulations on crypto as a payment service, and taxation frameworks for crypto.

Switzerland is known as a crypto-friendly nation due to both its establishment of a virtual currency hub, “crypto valley,” in Zug and its status as a tax-free haven for crypto investors. Gibraltar has reportedly attracted 200 ICOs before the planned launch of its Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), and Malta, the “blockchain island,” has welcomed major crypto exchanges Binance and OKEx recently.

BlockShow also released a poll this week on blockchain-based app Polys that allows users to vote on the leading women and companies in the EU blockchain space. The winners of the poll will be announced during the BlockShow conference at the end of this month in Berlin.

At the beginning of February, the European Commission announced the launch of the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum as part of their aim to unite the economy around blockchain. However, more recently, newly approved EU privacy laws – which come into effect on May 25 – arguably conflict with the decentralized nature of blockchain technology.

6  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-05-17] Japan’s Largest Bank, Plans to Launch Own Cryptocurrency in 2019 on: May 17, 2018, 02:58:27 PM
One of the largest banks in the world has announced its MUFG Coin trial which is expected to involve about 100,000 account holders.

Cryptocurrencies have never lacked popularity in Japan. The new stage in the development of the crypto sphere in this country may be associated with the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, and more specifically the trial of its own digital currency. The new MUFG Coin will be put to a test during a large-scale trial.

The Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group is a Japanese bank holding which takes an important place in the financial system of the country. According to the S&P Global Market Intelligence report 2017 it takes the 5th place among the world’s largest banks by total assets which makes it the largest bank of Japan. The bank has always had a priority on working in the fintech sphere and the new project has all the chances to become a success.

MUFG Coin is the new cryptocurrency which can be called digital yen as the exchange rate of the new coin to the Japanese currency is 1:1. The bank has announced a large-scale trial by 2019. The pilot project will be aired in limited areas of the country, but the scope of the project is impressive. MUFG expects about 100,000 account holders to take part in the trial.

The trial of MUFG Coin will provide the participants with a number of opportunities. The cryptocurrency is expected to be used in restaurants, convenience stores and other shops. The money transfers between the trial participants will also be available.

MUFG conducts the trial to proof the security of the system and remedy any problems in the payment process. The bank plans to gradually increase the list of businesses accepting MUFG Coin. At the moment it is in the process of establishing partnership with the companies that will create the testing pool. The reputation and influence of MUFG will definitely help in enlarging the scale of the trial.

The crypto market of Japan is not expecting to see the immediate effect from the MUFG Coin trial. However, it may become a mover of the cryptocurrency acceptance. MUFG has enough influence to give a fresh impetus to the development of the sphere.

Mitsubishi Corporation and MUFG are also working on the usage of Ripple technology for cross-border payments. The reason that stimulated MUFG’s collaboration with Ripple is the possibility to lower time and costs of transaction settlement. This complex approach to the adoption of crypto sphere left no doubt that the bank has serious trust in cryptos.

The crypto sphere and traditional financial institutions are engaged in active interaction. What started as a serious confrontation now seems to become a mutually beneficial collaboration. The example of the MUFG Coin trial shows that financial giants understand the advantages of blockchain technology and prefer to treat it as a partner not as an enemy.

Австрия собирается ввести правила для криптовалют и ICO
Министр финансов Австрии Хартвиг Логер рассказал о том, какие меры планируется применять к участникам криптовалютного рынка. Так, будет введена обязательная идентификация всех участников сделок. Кроме того, детали всех операций на сумму более €10 тысяч должны быть доступны для отдела финансовой разведки Австрии.

Вроде Австрия и не против криптовалюты, но с другой стороны пытается создать жесткие правила. И пока непонятно  - хорошо это или плохо...  Huh  И кто из стран следующий?
14  Local / Новости / Аноним купил BTC на миллиард долларов on: February 21, 2018, 10:55:42 PM
"Во время недавнего спада, на котором биткоин опустился к тому, что вероятнее всего является дном, то есть к ~$5 000, неизвестный инвестор купил 96 000 BTC, которые сейчас стоят более миллиарда долларов.
Энди Хоффман (Andy Hoffman), ярый сторонник биткоина, называющий себя криптоконсультантом, публично заявил своим подписчикам в Твиттере:

    «Адрес 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 приобрёл BTC на $344 миллиона по средней цене $8 400 с 09.02.18 по 12.02.18, затем почти удвоил эту сумму, добавив 41 000 монет. Общее количество составило 96 000 монет, которые по цене $9 400 стоят примерно $900 000 000»."

А паникёры рассказывают, что биткоин не популярен уже... Видимо, не все так думают  Wink
