Bitcoin Platform First Global Credit Adds Shares Traded on London Stock Exchange
Bitcoin margin trading platform First Global Credit has announced that is expanding its range of available equities by including shares that are traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
First Global Credit’s latest stock market selections include some of the LSE’s highly traded shares. They include Barclays Bank, Vodafone, Telecom Plus and many others – all available to be traded using Bitcoin as collateral margin. Prior to making the announcement, the platform was already offering stocks from US, Russia, China and Mexico.
“The best way to serve our customers is to provide choice,” said Marcie Terman, the director at First Global Communications. “We already offer a good mix of tech, entertainment, internet and health care stocks and while we offer several ETFs which cover geographic growth areas like Brazil, Russia, China and Mexico, until now choices were limited to the American markets.”
Making Bitcoin More Productive
First Global Credit also stressed how it is focusing hugely on making Bitcoin more productive in the traditional finance markets. The platform discussed Currency Switch, a service which enables traders to move their Bitcoin collateral “in an out of the fiat” without closing stock positions. Terman said that it has been really difficult for people to find solutions to turn Bitcoin into a productive asset while, on the other hand, traders at First Global Credit have an edge because they “extract profit from their capital in two ways.”
Overall, First Global Credit’s equity expansion plans seem to have arrived at the right time, given the current health of both stock and Bitcoin markets. The platform, in the end, is providing additional opportunities for traders wishing to make money from shorting stocks and Bitcoin.
“FGC is a company that is expanding the range of choice for trading,” said Terman. http://www.newsbtc.com/2016/01/18/28892/
bis auf, "nein Banken wollen keinen Bitcoin", lass ich es unkommentiert... die erste lässt die hosen runter
LHV Bank: We Support Bitcoin's Values
Laur told CoinDesk that LHV remains interested in both digital currency and distributed ledger applications for the technology:
"It's fair to say we support the core values of bitcoin - namely decentralization and open permissionless innovation. That being said, we are a bank and have to operate within a certain legal framework and take all regulations very seriously which limits our choices at times."
Down the 'rabbit hole'
As for his own acumen with the technology, Laur said he first learned about bitcoin in 2010, but only last year began to see its potential.
A former billing and payments manager for Skype, Laur took over managing LHV’s cryptocurrency product in October.
Speaking to this background, Laur suggested that he understands why Internet companies like Netflix have voiced support for bitcoin. The payment systems used today, Laur says, "simply aren’t built" for online business.
"The challenge for the likes of Skype is to be able to provide a means to pay in almost every country in the world. And there isn't a single payment method that can do that today," he said, adding:
"Could bitcoin or another cryptocurrency
solve this problem? Potentially yes."Laur went on to call existing banking infrastructure "ancient".
The statements echo a trend recently emphasized by Aite Group, which found blockchain to be gaining steam among financial firms due in part to a drive to replace legacy systems.http://www.coindesk.com/lhv-bank-exec-we-support-bitcoins-values/
