FTX and Alameda Research Collapse Sad Event but 'Good for the Long Run' ...

    While the collapse of the crypto exchange FTX and its affiliate Alameda Research is thought to have left many crypto players, including market makers, in the worst possible position, according to Andrei Grachev, managing partner at DWF Labs, this incident may have helped to 'flush out companies that were not sustainable enough to operate during a storm.' As a result, the 'market will be healthier' going forward.The Art of Market Making Besides weeding out weak players, Andrei Grachev suggested in a written response to questions from Bitcoin.com News that the collapse of key crypto industry players like FTX and Terra has highlighted the importance of adopting measures that protect users. One such measure, which can be used by global digital asset market makers like DWF Labs, is the so-called pump-and-dump protection scheme. The scheme is essentially a liquidity management technique across exchanges. Meanwhile, Grachev also shared his views on topics that range from the misconception about market makers to how market-making differs between centralized exchanges (CEXs) and decentralized exchanges. Below are the managing partner's responses to the rest of the questions from Bitcoin.com News. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): Can you briefly define market making as well as what happens when a user buys a crypto asset on a centralized exchange or sells this on a decentralized exchange?Andrei Grachev (AG): A market maker creates liquid markets, quotes order books (puts buy and sell limit orde... read More



Integrating Decentralized Cross-Chain Communication Makes Bridges 'Subst...

    Although they grabbed less media attention than the collapse of centralized organizations, the so-called bridge exploit incidents in 2022 again proved that the decentralized finance (defi) ecosystem still lacks sufficiently secure solutions, Hugo Philion, the co-founder and CEO of Flare, has argued. Philion insists that the lack of such secure solutions has constrained the growth and use of defi products. Lack of Communication Between Chains In written responses sent to Bitcoin.com News, Philion claimed that the large-scale, cross-chain experimentation primarily seen in 2020 and 2021 potentially explains why more than $2 billion has been lost via the so-called bridge exploits of the past 12 months. However, according to the Flare CEO, while it may not be possible to completely eliminate risks for users, bridges could 'be made substantially safer.' Besides addressing security-related issues, Philion also offered his thoughts on many other issues that range from the possible use of non-smart contract digital assets in defi and Web3, to insuring digital assets when they are moved across chains. Below are Philion's responses to the questions sent. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): Can you explain why no one has been able to securely unify the ecosystem yet? Hugo Philion (HP): Blockchains have historically been designed as distributed ledgers processing native transactions, i.e. for bitcoin, the movement of the native asset bitcoin from... read More



Web3 Applications Will Increasingly Be Built on Custom Blockchains, Says...

    As blockchain developers compete for traffic and resources for their respective dapps (decentralized applications), the downside to this, according to some in the industry, can be a poor user experience which in turn undermines the mass adoption cause. Therefore, unless current blockchains - both Layers 1 and 2 - can overcome niggling issues like high gas fees or poor network speed, it will be difficult to convince traditional organizations that they need the tech, according to Ankr's Josh Neuroth.Overcoming Blockchain Scalability Challenges In cases where an attempt to improve a blockchain's transaction throughput is made, history has shown that compromises that might affect the chain's security may have to be made. Alternatively, developers can consider overcoming this problem, known as the blockchain trilemma, using sidechains or application-specific blockchains (Appchains). As Josh Neuroth, head of product at the decentralized Web3 infrastructure platform Ankr explained, the widespread adoption of Appchains may be the spark needed to kickstart and ultimately onboard billions of new Web3 users. In addition, Neuroth also suggested that Appchains can be used as tools which help developers 'overcome scalability challenges by working together with other scaling solutions like Layer 2.' To learn more about Appchains and how they can potentially be a solution to the so-called blockchain trilemma challenge, Bitcoin.com News had a conversation with Neuroth. Below are Neuroth's rem... read More



Astar Network CEO: Webassembly Smart Contracts Are Going to 'Pull a Lot ...

    Ethereum is almost universally credited for kickstarting the Web3 revolution after it brought to life the concept of smart contracts. However, some in the Web3 community, like Astar Network's Sota Watanabe, believe the protocol cannot 'build the innovative future of blockchain alone.' In addition, some critics point to the language obstacle which they argue makes the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) a less-than-ideal place to build.Webassembly Smart Contracts 'Will Accelerate the Adoption of Web3' It is this and other limitations of the EVM that led to the creation of an alternative known as Webassembly (WASM). This alternative is said to be a virtual machine of choice for developers, engineers and academics that are frustrated with the EVM. According to Watanabe, for Web2 developers that want to migrate to Web3, WASM seems like a logical choice because it 'supports a wide range of languages with native performance and high portability.' To learn more about WASM, Bitcoin.com News reached out to Sota Watanabe, the CEO of Astar Network, a multichain smart contracts platform. In his written responses to questions sent, the Astar Network CEO offered his thoughts on Webassembly and the role it will play in accelerating the adoption of Web3. Watanabe also explained why Astar Network is supporting both the EVM and WASM. Below are Watanabe's responses to questions sent to him via Whatsapp. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): In very simple terms, can you explain to our readers what the WASM is all... read More



Blockchain Pilgrimage: Regulating Crypto 'Should Be Combined With Educat...

    The collapse of Do Kwon's Terra empire in May, and Sam Bankman-Fried's FTX in early November 2022, will be remembered as two incidents that put the crypto industry on the back foot. It is now widely expected that regulators around the world will use the two incidents to justify the establishment of regulatory regimes that are likely to stifle further innovation. That notwithstanding, one Singapore-based blockchain payments company, Wadzpay, has partnered with Saudi Arabian fintech Geidea to provide financial solutions for pilgrims on their way to Mecca. Providing a Cutting Edge Payment Experience to Visitors Faced with the inevitable, some players in the crypto industry assert that tougher regulations are not going to stop cryptos and their underlying technology — the blockchain. They point to how digital currencies have been instrumental in lowering the cost of remitting funds inside and beyond national borders. According to this view, the ease and speed of moving funds across borders is another key attribute that makes digital currencies and the blockchain an indispensable part of modern payment systems. It is these and other attributes of digital currencies that sustain their appeal even as regulators are looking to pounce, and some crypto companies are looking to find or expand into new markets and niches. For instance, Wadzpay, a Singapore-based company that runs an interoperable blockchain-based payments ecosystem, has partnered with Saudi Arabian fintech Geidea t... read More



'Cryptocurrencies Like Bitcoin Make Global Commerce Easy'— Founder...

    Despite the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)'s Feb. 5, 2021 directive that instructed banks to block crypto entities from the financial system, the demand and use of cryptocurrencies have continued to grow. Not even the central bank's subsequent crackdown on crypto entities it accused of defying the directive has succeeded in suffocating demand for cryptocurrencies. Africans Need 'Access to the World of Cryptocurrency' In contrast, Nigerians appear to have shunned the CBN's digital currency — the e-naira. Despite the central bank's attempts to present the e-naira as an alternative to cryptocurrencies, local residents seemingly still prefer the latter. According to Benjamin Eseoghene, the founder and CEO of a local crypto exchange, the residents' reluctance to use the e-naira could be tied to the CBN's failure to fully sensitize the masses about it. Eseoghene, whose company Roqqu.com recently received approval to operate in Europe, told Bitcoin.com News that Nigerian residents prefer cryptocurrencies because they are borderless. Meanwhile, Nigeria's continuing shortage of foreign exchange, as well as the local currency's decline, are other factors that push Nigerian residents towards cryptocurrencies. Nigeria's population of over 200 million people means the country is one of the world's biggest crypto markets and this naturally attracts global crypto giants. However, the presence of such big companies has not deterred local entrepreneurs like Eseoghene. In his written resp... read More



A Look at One of Crypto's Greatest Mysteries — Bytecoin's Alleged ...

    When Bitcoin first launched, the community was extremely small and it slowly grew during the first two years until the project's creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, left the community for good. During the early years encompassing the world of cryptocurrencies, a number of anonymous individuals like Sunny King, Artforz, Rat4, and Cobra followed Satoshi's method of keeping themselves unknown to the general public. The following is a look at the creator of the privacy-centric Cryptonote protocol, known as Nicolas van Saberhagen. The pseudonym was leveraged by the inventor of the untraceable transaction technology that sparked the features present in the blockchain networks Bytecoin, Monero, and two dozen others.Crypto's Anonymous Personalities and the Mysterious Nicolas van Saberhagen During the last 13 years, a number of individuals within the cryptocurrency ecosystem have remained anonymous. The use of anonymity when creating a crypto project continues to this very day, and people creating decentralized finance (defi) protocols, and even non-fungible token (NFT) collections have done so under anonymity. In the early days, after Satoshi Nakamoto left, crypto project anonymity and 'ninja launches' were commonplace within the nascent digital currency environment. For instance, the individual who launched the first graphics processing unit (GPU) mining farm, Artforz, was anonymous. Artforz also implemented the first FPGA miner and launched a cryptocurrency asset called Tenebrix. The Tenebr... read More



Princess Charlene of Monaco: 'Web3 Allows Us to Create Assets Worth Coll...

    In the age in which contactless interactions are encouraged or where society is adopting new ways of making payments, it is thought by some to be imperative for progressive organizations and institutions to move with the times. As history has shown us, organizations quick to learn or embrace new ways of doing things can sometimes outcompete the ones that insist on continuing with old ways.Using Web3 to Raise Awareness of Plight of Hungry People It would appear that keeping up with the times is what Princess Charlene of Monaco and her charitable organization, The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation SA (PCMFSA) are already doing. Working with the internationally renowned South African artist, Junaid Senechal-Senekal, the foundation recently launched its first non-fungible token collection which went on sale on October 1. The 15-piece NFT collection features paintings of countless children and each has a watermark of Princess Charlene's face. The objective of the NFT sale is to raise funds to feed hungry children in South Africa. Princess Charlene also told Bitcoin.com News that while her foundation's efforts may not completely end global youth hunger, she at least hopes the NFTs will help remind the world that hundreds of millions of people are still going to bed hungry. In her written responses to questions sent by Bitcoin.com News, Princess Charlene explains why the PCMFSA has embraced Web3. Below are Princess Charlene's full responses to Bitcoin.com News' questions. Bitco... read More



Founder of Web3 Messaging App: Decentralized Platforms Enable Users 'to ...

    In a world where censorship is growing and the right to privacy is being undermined, Web3 - the next iteration of the world wide web - looks to some like the solution users of online platforms are waiting for. As some pioneering Web3 products and solutions have demonstrated, when users are in control, there are fewer incidents of breaches or unsanctioned use or transfer of their data. Decentralized Communication Finance (Dcfi) Building on this success, some Web3 startups are now attempting to create solutions that make it possible to combine decentralized finance and decentralized communications. One of such startup, Pravica Club - an Egypt-based Web3 firm - recently launched such a messaging platform. According to the startup's co-founder and chief executive officer, Mohamed Abdou, Pravica Club - a Web3 messaging, self-custody, decentralized identity and blockchain-enabled conversations app - gives users an 'opportunity to build their communities in a safe place.' Abdou told Bitcoin.com News how Pravica Club's eternal message and crypto payments functions make the app competitive. In addition to sharing information on the messaging app, the co-founder gave his perspective on crypto regulations and the emergence of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a blockchain and crypto hub. Below are Abdou's written responses to questions sent to him. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): You recently launched a decentralized communication finance (dcfi) platform that you call Pravica Club.

Bitcoin's 'Fundamental Value Is Not in Line With Market Pric...

    Profitable bitcoin mining is essentially a result of an efficient and highly skilled team of professionals that can maintain runtime, a founder of a Bitcoin mining company has asserted. Therefore, even when the price is hovering around $20,000, a bitcoin miner with these attributes can still operate profitably.'Bitcoin Fundamentals Rarely Change' The drop in value of bitcoin from just under $30,000 at the start of June to below $20,000 by mid-month is believed to be one of the factors that contributed to the collapse and insolvency of large crypto entities like 3AC and more recently Voyager. These two high profile entities, however, are by no means the only ones seriously affected. Besides having to deal with lower prices, many market participants, including bitcoin miners, have had to contend with the elevated risk of becoming insolvent. As the situation with 3AC has shown, many market participants were, or are still, over-leveraged. Another significant drop in prices could result in more insolvencies. However, for other market participants like BTC miner Permian Chain, a further drop in the price of the top crypto is unlikely to have much impact on the company's long-term plans. According to the founder and CEO of the Canada-based cryptocurrency mining firm, Mohamed El-Masri, the fundamental value behind bitcoin is what motivates them. El-Masri also explained to Bitcoin.com News via email that the short-term price volatility of the crypto asset and the accompanying media he... read More



Trend Forecaster Gerald Celente Says World War 3 Has Begun — &lsqu...

    This week Bitcoin.com News spoke with Gerald Celente, the popular trends forecaster, and publisher of the Trends Journal. During a telephone conversation, Celente discussed the uncertainty surrounding the global economy after governments worldwide locked down the world's citizens over the Covid-19 pandemic, shut down businesses and injected trillions into the economy. The discussion touches upon gold, bitcoin, the pandemic, the Ukraine-Russia war, and the Federal Reserve. The trends forecaster believes that World War III has already begun, and if people do not assemble to bolster peace in this world then we the people are doomed. Celente stressed that if people want real change, they cannot rely on hope as they need to take a stand to make it happen themselves.Trend Forecaster Gerald Celente Discusses the Economy, Covid 19, Great Reset, Gold, Bitcoin and MoreBitcoin.com News (BCN): What do you think about the global economy and the way it is today?Gerald Celente (GC): The Trends Journal had forecast this back in 2000. The reality that everybody is forgetting is that the Covid War destroyed the livelihoods of hundreds of millions, if not billions of people. The only thing they did to prevent it was to inject countless trillions of dollars of monetary methadone into the equity markets through their bond-buying schemes and keeping interest rates to negative and zero rate policy. Then governments pump in countless trillions of free money to keep pumping up the economy artificiall... read More



Namibian Educator: Low Level of Crypto and Blockchain Adoption in Africa...

    Blockchain and crypto enthusiasts have for years preached about the much envisioned mass adoption of this fintech and why this is an important goal that must be achieved sooner than later. However, many factors like ignorance, a lack of information, and poor telecommunication infrastructure have made the attainment of this objective difficult.A Book of 'Immeasurable' Importance In Africa, where proponents of cryptocurrencies believe the technology has a better chance of succeeding, the task of convincing the continent's citizens is made even more difficult by scammers. The number of people losing money to crypto scams remains very high, and this works against adoption efforts. To overcome this challenge, one Namibian educator and author, Gurvy Kavei, decided to publish a book that shares what he has learned. Kavei, who is also a tutor at the University of Namibia, told Bitcoin.com News that he expects the book to help practitioners, policymakers, as well as educators like himself, become acquainted with the technology's basics. In addition to sharing his reasons for publishing the book, Kavei explained to Bitcoin.com News in written responses why thinks education is the key. Below are Kavei's responses to questions sent to him via Whatsapp. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): What made you decide to write this book?Gurvy Kavei (GK): I am an educationist. With the low level of crypto and blockchain adoptions in Africa and Namibia in particular, it becomes a duty of care to create and shar... read More



Co-Founder of Africa Focused Fintech: Traditional Banks Not Optimized to...

    For years, traditional financial institutions in different parts of the world have been attempting to narrow the financial exclusion gap by extending their services to the unbanked population. Yet for many reasons, these institutions still cannot avail their products and services to everyone that needs them.Regulatory Hurdles While there are several reasons cited for why banks are still not able to do this, their failure to serve this unbanked population has, on the other hand, led to the meteoric rise of fintech startups. Instead of relying on metrics often used by traditional banks when making a decision on whether to open a new branch or not, fintech startups such as Eversend are often primed to serve even those without regular incomes. For individuals like Stone Atwine, a veteran banker who has been named in Forbes' 30 Under 30 List for Europe, and Technology, the failures of large financial institutions have created opportunities. In addition to explaining why he thinks traditional banks have failed to close the financial exclusion gap, Atwine (co-founder of Eversend) also shared his sentiments on crypto, stablecoins, and Web3 with Bitcoin.com News. Below are Atwine's responses to questions sent to him via email. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): You have worked for several conventional financial institutions and in different capacities. What can you say about their efforts to extend financial services to the unbanked? Do you see them ever succeeding at this, seeing that it has be... read More



Nigerian Fintech Founder: 'African Fintechs Have a Greater Scale P...

    The African fintech industry has grown rapidly over the past few years and this has caught the attention of some well-resourced venture capital (VC) firms. As one would expect, Nigerian fintech startups have dominated the continent in terms of funds raised or the number of transactions performed.Nigeria's Burgeoning Fintech Scene This dominance has convinced VCs to pour tens of millions of dollars into different Nigerian fintech projects. In fact, a few fintech startups that originated in Nigeria, the continent's most populous country, have managed to secure funding in excess of $100 million. Using the funds raised, the fintech startups have not only expanded their footprint across the African continent but have increased the number of services they offer. Overall, the rapid growth of the fintech industry is said to have benefitted many financially excluded people from Africa. However, critics of Nigeria's fintechs have argued that some of the VC-backed startups appear interested in brandishing volumes or the number of transactions performed over a certain period. Only a few are concerned about the future prospects of their businesses, the critics claim. In order to gain some insight into this and other issues within Nigeria's growing fintech industry, Bitcoin.com News recently reached out to Eghosa Nehikare, the CEO of a financial services fintech startup, Multigate. In written responses to questions sent via Whatsapp, Nehikare offers his thoughts on why Nigerian fintechs ar... read More



World Bank Predicts 3% Gold Price Growth, Expert Says a $3K per Ounce &l...

    The World Bank has said it expects the price of gold to rise by 3% in 2022 but warned the price might fall sharply if the Russian central bank decides to offload large quantities of the commodity. The Russian Factor After the price of gold surged past the $2,000 mark in early March, a new World Bank report now predicts the commodity's value will only grow by just 3% in 2022. The bank, however, said it expects prices of commodities like food - which have risen by 84% - and crude oil to stay elevated for much of 2022. While some gold supporters have predicted the price of the metal will likely hit a new all-time high, in its report, the World Bank is instead expecting a possible sharp price fall in 2023. The bank points to the possible offloading of large quantities of gold by Russia as one possible factor that will weigh down the price. 'In the longer term, gold prices could be affected by the Bank of Russia's policies, and should it engage in large gold sales, prices could drop materially,' a report quoting the bank's latest forecast document has said. When Russia, which has been cut off from the global financial system, resorts to selling large quantities of gold as a way to raise funds, the resulting supply glut will likely cause the commodity's price to drop. In the meantime, some reports have suggested that Russia is considering the possibility of backing its currency with gold. While it's not yet clear when this will likely happen, the prospect of a large country backing... read More



Founder of Zimbabwean Fintech Startup: 'Everyone Has a Right to Ac...

    Cryptocurrencies have been proven to be a financial tool that can be used to store value or make payments by those excluded from the financial system. Yet, despite this being true in many jurisdictions, many of those that might benefit from cryptocurrencies are still not using them.Regulatory Uncertainty and Ignorance There may be several different reasons why this is the case, but as many in the crypto space have acknowledged, regulatory uncertainty and ignorance are often the key factors that dissuade prospective users from adopting this fintech. Therefore, in order to overcome these and other barriers, entrepreneurs like Tadii Tendayi, the CEO and co-founder of Bitflex, have or are launching fintech solutions anchored on blockchain tehcnology. To understand how Bitflex is aiming to use the blockchain to benefit the masses, Bitcoin.com News recently reached out to the CEO via Linkedin. Below are Tendayi's answers to questions sent to him by Bitcoin.com News. Financial Freedom a Human RightBitcoin.com News (BCN): Can you start by telling our readers what made you decide to start this project and who else is behind it?Tadii Tendayi (TT): BitFlex was born out of the need to improve access to digital assets for Zimbabweans.

Top 5 Watershed Moments In BTC On-Chain Analysis' History. Is Your...

    These five moments shaped Bitcoin On-Chain analysis. Down below you’ll find a basic 101 article that reviews the basic concepts of the trade. If you have any problem with the list, David Puell is to blame. He’s a full-time on-chain analyst and the creator of MVRV and Puell Multiple. A side game called: Did your favorite moment make it?  1. ByteCoin invents cointime destroyed in 2011, the very first on-chain metric ever, still used today, and first metric to detect holding behavior in any financial asset. — David Puell (@kenoshaking) February 17, 2022 Anyway, let’s get into it. On-Chain Analysis Moment #1- ByteCoin Invents Coin Days Destroyed (CDD) AKA Coin Time Destroyed Invented In 2011, according to Puell CDD is “the very first on-chain metric ever, still used today, and first metric to detect holding behavior in any financial asset.” How does the metric detect holders, though? According to Glassnode Academy, “Coin Days Destroyed is a measure of economic activity which gives more weight to coins which haven't been spent for a long time.” So, the first eureka moment was to get the coin’s age into the equation. That way, the all-important holders entered into the equation. Glassnode again: “It is considered an important alternative to looking at total transaction volumes, which may not accurately represent economic activity if value was not stored for a meaningful time. Conversely, coins held in cold storage a... read More



'Ponzi Schemes Have Created a Negative Reputation for the Industry...

    Education and awareness campaigns are still viewed as important channels that draw people to cryptocurrencies and blockchain. This has been particularly true in some parts of Africa where bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are proving to be a useful alternative to fiat currency. Blockchain Education and Advocacy From Uganda Despite a surge in the use of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies that started with the pandemic-inspired lockdowns, many people, particularly in Africa, are still unfamiliar with these technologies. To bridge this knowledge gap, many blockchain enthusiasts in Africa have chosen to focus their efforts on educating their fellow countrymen on the basics of the blockchain. In Uganda, blockchain enthusiasts Daniel Mulondo and Killian Mugenyi have created a platform called Nileone, which not only aims to educate but also to help raise awareness about potential crypto scams. In an interview with Bitcoin.com News, Mugenyi explains how their efforts to raise public awareness are yielding positive results. He also gives his opinion on issues ranging from central bank digital currencies (CBDC) to ongoing efforts by Ugandan authorities to regulate digital assets. Below are Mugenyi's written responses to Bitcoin.com News regarding questions sent to him via Whatsapp. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): You are one of the few figures in Africa involved in crypto/blockchain education and advocacy. Can you explain why you have chosen to be involved in this work? Killian Mugeny... read More



‘Making a Stronger Impact Artistically’— An In-Depth Discussion Ab...

    Last month, the lead vocalist of System of a Down, Serj Tankian, hosted an art exhibition with the non-fungible token (NFT) platform and marketplace Curio NFT. The physical and virtual-melded art show was called 'Not for Touching' and this week Tankian told Bitcoin.com News that he believes NFT technology has opened new doors for his artistic expression. This week Bitcoin.com News chatted with System of a Down's (SoaD) lead vocalist, Serj Tankian, about non-fungible token (NFT) tech and how it has given him the ability to express his art in a new way. In December, Tankian and Curio NFT hosted an art exhibition featuring the artist's NFT artwork called 'Not for Touching.' Tankian has been an artist for years, but NFTs has given the SoaD singer a new way 'to affect multiple senses simultaneously' and he stressed that he's always interested in having 'a stronger impact artistically.' The following is an in-depth discussion with SoaD's Serj Tankian that Bitcoin.com News recorded on January 5. Bitcoin.com News (BCN): You've recently stepped into the world of NFTs. Can you tell our readers how you discovered NFT technology? Serj Tankian: I discovered it by reading the news. Seeing how different artists were releasing NFTs. We were remodeling the house and I had a lot of reading time, and I was like 'wow this is really interesting.' Since I've been doing art for a number of years, musically connected art, I thought 'wow this could be a new platform for what I am doing.' So that's wh... read More
