https://ironx.io

Разработчики интеллектуальной трейдинговой экосистемы IronX решили совместить функционал торговой платформы, криптовалютного обменника, аналитического сервиса и государственного банка. Пользователи быстро обменивают и покупают монеты, пользуясь почти неограниченным пулом ликвидности. Команда создала экосистему для удобной работы с криптовалютами, выгодного трейдинга и быстрого обмена активов.

Как устроена экосистема IronX?

Платформа IronX совмещает функции банковской организации, платёжной системы, биржевого брокера и бухгалтера для своих клиентов. Архитектура приложения основана на успешных рыночных кейсах (Practices), стандартных процедурах работы с фиатными и криптовалютными активами (Procedures), а также оптимизированной модели управления (Business processes).

Разработчики отмечают пять главных «фичей» платформы.

🖍Regulation. Руководство экосистемы внедрило процедуры KYC и AML, далее планируется получение лицензии британской надправительственной надзорной организации FCA. Все операции на IronX соответствуют стандартам международных контролирующих органов, пользователи застрахованы от любых проблем с законом.

🖍Liquidity. Финансовые партнёры IronX предоставляют ресурсу крупные объёмы ликвидности, поэтому пользователи могут конвертировать различные виды цифровых и фиатных денег за несколько минут. В дальнейшем планируется интеграция с другими онлайн-площадками, чтобы обеспечить доступ к глобальному рынку ликвидности.

🖍Customer support. Служба поддержки IronX работает на тридцати мировых языках, каждый пользователь может задать вопрос через чат и получить квалифицированный совет в режиме 24/7. Опция актуальна для новичков на рынке криптомонет, облегчает переход на новую платформу с других криптоплощадок.

🖍Technology. Система двухфакторной аутентификации, лаконичный интерфейс с набором необходимых и дополнительных функций, метод шифрования личных данных TLS (Transport Layer Security), а также регулярный аудит системы сторонними организациями — принципиально новый подход к трейдингу и обмену цифровых активов.

🖍Fiat to Crypto conversion. Партнёрами IronX выступают крупнейшие банки, поддерживающие криптовалютные платежи и конвертацию нескольких видов фиатных валют. Пользователи могут хранить на аккаунте IronX наличные и криптовалютные активы, быстро выводить доход, сотрудничать с крупнейшими государственными банками.

Команда создателей IronX отмечает, что набор инструментов пользователя подходит как новичкам, так и опытным инвесторам. Например, автоматическая загрузка отчётов о внутридневной торговле, справочная информация о состоянии аккаунта и встроенные торговые стратегии облегчат работу на рынке. Модуль Matching Engine ускоряет обмен валют на площадке, подбирая продавцов и покупателей среди миллиона пользователей системы.

Платформа IronX адаптирована для работы на ПК, планшете и смартфоне, программный продукт совместим с традиционными трейндинговыми приложениями MT4 или WebTrader.

Краудсейл и перспективы развития платформы IronX https://ironx.io
Создателями IronX выступили компании Emurgo HK и IronFX, успешно работающие на рынке криптовалют. Разработка экосистемы стартовала в мае 2018 года, первая рабочая версия была запущена уже в сентябре.

Canadian Border Services Begins Testing IBM Blockchain for Shipping

Canadian Border Services Begins Testing IBM Blockchain for Shipping

The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) is partnering with Canada's second-largest port to test out a blockchain solution for streamlining freight shipping.

The CBSA, along with the Port of Montreal, will be trialing TradeLens, a project built by IBM and Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk Group, the Canadian Press reported Thursday. The project hopes to reduce the amount of paperwork involved when transporting goods.

Launched this past August, the project is aimed at modernizing the shipping industry by digitizing the "paper trail with electronic scheduling, clearance and billing while tracing containers," and is expected to be fully commercial by the end of the year.

John Ossowski, president of the CBSA, said that this project was an opportunity to create a "singular, trusted digital supply chain for all shipments entering Canada," according to a press release.

The project claims to have reduced the transit time for a particular shipment in the United States by 40 percent, and thereby reducing costs by thousands of dollars

Inma Borrella, who leads the blockchain research team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Center for Transportation and Logistics, told the Canadian Press that one of the main hurdles for this project is to get competitors to work together.

"Ocean freight in particular is very slow in tech adoption. So that is one of the barriers," she explained.

The CBSA will be one of 90 organizations participating in the project, joining the customs authorities of Australia and Netherlands and the ports of Halifax, Singapore and Rotterdam.

Report

Report: Bitfury Weighs Initial Public Offering

Crypto miner manufacturer Bitfury is considering holding an initial public offering (IPO) as one of a number of strategic options for raising funds, Bloomberg reported Thursday.

Citing "people familiar with the matter," the report says Bitfury is looking into listing in Amsterdam, London or Hong Kong, possibly as soon as 2019, though no final decisions have been made, according to the report.

Other options include raising debt financing or selling a minority stake.

The company has contacted investment banks around the world as it considers whether to hold an IPO, Bloomberg said.

Bitfury may be valued somewhere between $3 and $5 billion if it goes public within the next two years, according to Bloomberg's sources. However, these valuations are "early estimates and could change depending on markets and the industry," the report continued.

The company most recently released its latest generation of bitcoin application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) for mining the world's largest cryptocurrency by market cap last month, as well as an enterprise-grade bitcoin miner earlier in October.

It has also been working to build up a number of mining farms in Canada through its affiliate, Hut 8 Mining Corp.

Should Bitfury launch an IPO, it would join fellow miner manufacturer Bitmain, which announced its own public offering last month on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Bitfury did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

chinese arbitration court says bitcoin should be legally protected as property

chinese arbitration court says bitcoin should be legally protected as property

an arbitration body in china has ruled that despite the country's central bank's ban on cryptocurrency trading, bitcoin should still be legally protected as a property with economic values.

the shenzhen court of international arbitration published a case analysis on thursday via wechat, detailing its ruling on a recent economic dispute that involved a business contract relating to possession and transfer of crypto assets.

according to the case analysis, the unnamed plaintiff signed a contract agreement with the defendant, which allowed the latter to trade and manage a pool of cryptocurrencies on the plaintiff's behalf.

however, the plaintiff said the defendant failed and refused to return the cryptocurrencies after an agreed deadline. as a result, they brought the case to the arbitrator, seeking the return of the assets with interest.

the cryptocurrencies at dispute included around 20 bitcoin, 50 bitcoin cash, and 13 bitcoin diamond, worth around $493,158 combined, the plaintiff said.

while there's no specific law in china governing cryptocurrencies, the arbitrator's analysis offers a window into its thinking on the nature of the financial technology.

the arbitrator said one main argument made by the defendant was that the ban from the people's bank of china (pboc) on cryptocurrency trading and initial coin offerings essentially means crypto payments and transactions should be illegal in china. as such, the entire contract, by default, would become invalid.

further, with the trading ban, the defendant said there was no venue to trade and send the assets to the plaintiff.

however, the arbitrator disagreed, explaining the nature of the case is about the contractual obligation for returning cryptocurrencies, which does not fall under the cryptocurrency trading or initial coin offering categories outlined in the pboc's september 2017 ban.

the arbitrator stated that there is no law in china currently that prohibits the possession of bitcoin and its transactions between individuals. further, it said there should be no technical difficulties in sending bitcoin as long as one has a bitcoin address and private key.

"the arbitration court noticed that, after september 2017, major bitcoin exchanges operating in china at the time suspended their businesses. but technically, that fact does not prevent the defendant from sending the bitcoin and bitcoin cash at dispute to the plaintiff upon the agreed deadline," the arbitrator said.

the court concluded that, whether bitcoin is a legal tender or not, does not have an impact on the fact that bitcoin ownership should be protected legally d on china's contract law, adding:

"bitcoin has the nature of a property, which can be owned and controlled by parties, and is able to provide economic values and benefits."

the court is one of the arbitration committees established in china after the country enacted a law in 1995 enabling city governments to form such entities to rule on economic disputes relating to contract issues in areas such as business, finance and real estate.

Paxos Standard Emerges as Early Leader in Stablecoin Sprint

Paxos Standard Emerges as Early Leader in Stablecoin Sprint

Tether is experiencing an unprecedented challenge to its status as undisputed stablecoin market lodestar.

With over 50 active stablecoin projects emerging around the world and even more set to debut in the weeks and months to come, these are fraught times for the stablecoin founded in 2014, as the market explores alternatives to USDT amid suspicions of overstated US Dollar reserves and lack of transparency. CCN recently reported that four stablecoins were added to OKEx and Huobi namely, Paxos Standard Token (PAX), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), TrustToken’s True USD (TUSD) and Circle’s USD Coin (USDC).

PAX Takes The Lead
According to data from CoinMarketCap, of the chasing pack behind Tether, PAX is in the lead with a market capitalisation of $21.72 million, followed by TUSD at $19.62 million, GUSD caps $3.47 million, leaving USDC in the rear with $1.16 million. In only a few weeks of trading, PAX boasts of 63,206,483.08 PAX ($64,244,109.41) of total supply.

Built on an Ethereum framework, PAX is designed to offer all of Tether’s capabilities in addition to a decentralised accounting function and the supervision of financial regulators as a fully regulated asset, which gives investors greater confidence than the somewhat murky nature of Tether.

In an interview with Forbes, Charles Cascarilla, CEO and co-founder of Paxos said:

“Paxos Standard gives financial markets the power to transact in a fully USD-collateralized asset with the benefits of blockchain technology and oversight from financial regulators. We believe that Paxos Standard represents a significant advancement in digital assets, leveraging the oversight and stability of the traditional financial system and enabling a frictionless global economy…In the current marketplace, the biggest hindrances to digital asset adoption is trust and volatility. As a regulated trust with a one-to-one dollar-collateralized stablecoin, we believe we are offering an asset that improves on the utility of money.”

Crypto Community Ditches Tether, Backs PAX
Amidst investor fears fueled by the Tether Foundation’s perceived lack of transparency, USDT recently experienced a downturn followed by a sudden investor exodus that took more than $300 million out of the market. As a result, Tether is currently in a very uncomfortable position as many USDT holders panic-sell and look for alternative assets to hold value.

Following the sudden exodus, Tether hit a record low of 85 cents to the dollar on Kraken and 96 cents on Binance, both of which are hugely significant events for an asset whose value rests almost entirely on its tight USD peg. Bitcoin meanwhile jumped nearly 9 percent as USDT holders pumped funds into it and other cryptos viewed as less of an exposure risk than Tether.

In the midst of all this, a number of exchanges are also quietly dropping USDT in favour of alternative stablecoins. Last month, Digifinex, a top-20 exchange announced that it was replacing Tether with TUSD, citing trust issues. According to Digifinex co-founder Kiana Shek, the platform had been “looking to get rid of Tether for a hile”.

A number of prominent crypto industry figures have contributed to the continued USDT selloff with pronouncements promoting alternatives to Tether and highlighting PAX as a key alternative.

nem foundation launches blockchain hub in melbourne

nem foundation launches blockchain hub in melbourne

melbourne is now home to a new blockchain hub where nem representatives will provide support to members of the public on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.

the hub will host educational programs and blockchain events, and it will also serve as a business incubator and support centre for nem-d blockchain startups. having benefited from local support through partnerships in australia and new zealand such as travelbybit, australia holds bright prospects for the nem foundation.

nem foundation lead in australia and new zealand, jian chan has said the launch of the nem blockchain hub in melbourne is a strong sign of nem’s commitment to supporting innovation in australia and the world. according to chan, nem is now present in over 40 countries, having first launched its australian operations at the fintech australia intersekt festival last year. nem’s rapid expansion may be attributed to the presence of similar hubs in other countries.

launchvic, a startup support program launched in 2016 with support from the victorian government also expressed delight at the possibilities created by the new hub.

speaking about the hub, kate cornick, launchvic ceo said:

“blockchain is a fast-growing and evolving technology, and launchvic is pleased to welcome nem.io foundation to the victorian innovation hub. this is set to become a multi-sector co-working facility that celebrates collaboration and innovation for more than 360 of australia’s top startups, accelerators and incubators.”
