The Global Financial Crisis Led To Decentralized Exchanges

The Global Financial Crisis Led To Decentralized Exchanges

By Juan Mende. The 2008 Global Financial Crisis led to movements such as Occupy Wall Street and Bitcoin. Bitcoin at least is still alive and well, as attention on inefficiencies, inequalities, and the risks of the intermediated financial system have persisted over the last decade-plus.  Distrust only grew amid recent controversies, such as the GameStop short squeeze, where retail investors could not access trading platforms during a time of high volatility. Debate has centered upon slow settlement cycles, inefficient price discovery, liquidity challenges, and a lack of trust in the assets. Wanton money printing in industrialized...

What are Cryptocurrency and Tips for Beginners

Cryptocurrency is simply a type of currency only in a computerized format. It is a digital asset formulated to operate as an exchange medium wherein transactions are stored on a decentralized ledger called ‘blockchain.’ It is a modern way of conducting business and has many merits. It eradicates the requirement for a governing body. Transactions are done on a P2P (peer-to-peer) network without the need for intermediaries.  Usability Cryptocurrency can be used as a means of payment for local and international trades. Private information of the trading parties is kept confidential, yet marketing details can be accessed as the blockchain...

Hawkish Central Bank and Hot Inflation Numbers To Fuel New Zealand Dollar Higher

Hawkish Central Bank and Hot Inflation Numbers To Fuel New Zealand Dollar Higher

The New Zealand Dollar is the talk of the town after the RBNZ surprised markets during their regular interest rate policy meeting. While RBNZ kept rates unchanged at 0.25%, the central bank abruptly ceased its quantitative easing altogether, prompting traders to start pricing in an earlier rate hike from the Kiwi. The Reserve Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee, led by Governor Adrian Orr, on Wednesday said it will halt bond buying under its “Large Scale Asset Purchase” program by July 23. The statement omitted a previous reference to the need for considerable time and patience to achieve its inflation and employment goals. Then on Friday,...

Bitcoin: On The Edge Of Mass Adoption

Bitcoin: On The Edge Of Mass Adoption

Q&A with Elena Obukhova, Founder & CEO at FAS | Fintech Advisory Services What is the reason behind the adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender in Latin America? Why this region? Latin America is a very special region where the majority of countries went through multiple severe financial and political crises with the government failing to help people. Different regulations and limits on foreign currencies, especially the US dollar, led to the rise of the Cash Economy that was covered in “Bitcoin as a Legal Tender: What that Means for All of Us?”. People find crypto and particularly Bitcoin the only way to protect their...

PrimeXBT Lead Analyst Kim Chua: Catalysts Aligned For ETH To Rocket Higher

As the cryptocurrency market continues to consolidate, ETH price is showing signs of life after falling drastically off its peak price of $4,373. Ever since the London hard fork was successfully deployed on testnet on Jun 24, the amount of ETH sent to the ETH2.0 staking contract has risen substantially, a sign of optimism from ETH long-term investors.  The London upgrade consists of four upgrades to be conducted at weekly intervals, with the ultimate aim of implementing a PoS consensus on the ETH blockchain, widely known as ETH2.0 by the end of this year or early next year. The upgrade on June 24 consisted of the highly anticipated...

Bitcoin as a Legal Tender: What that Means for All of Us?

By Elena Obukhova, founder & CEO at FAS | Fintech Advisory Services We all heard the recent news that El Salvador is to become the first country to use Bitcoin as a legal tender. What would that mean for the rest of the world?  Honestly, I am not surprised that the first country to do so comes from Latin America. Countries in the region have been suffering from multiple crises and economic instability.  People started losing trust in the government and central banks. In 2001, for example, Argentina froze all bank accounts and only allowed small withdrawals from peso-denominated accounts. It was not the first case of the...

why is it so hard to ban bitcoin

Why is it so hard to ban bitcoin?

Tiena Sekharan, Tokenomics & Blockchain Consultant at FAS | Fintech Advisory Services It is in the interests of central banks, legacy traditional banks, politicians, and weapons manufacturers to ban bitcoin. With bitcoin: * Central banks will no longer be able to control money supply which will make their role less consequential.  * Traditional banks will see their role reduced as the peer-to-peer Bitcoin network does away with the need of an intermediary. They’d have less of an opportunity to earn yield on customer deposits as bitcoin makes it possible to self-custody and hold funds in one’s own digital wallet. Banks will...
