The platform, called Cash App on Apple’s iOS store, also overtook YouTube to become the number one top free mobile application on the iOS store, demonstrating a rising demand for digitalized payment systems in the U.S. market.
On Square, which initially gained traction as a tool for merchants, individual users can instantly send and receive money using mobile phones without the need to go through inefficient bank wire transfers and traditional payment platforms.
Similar apps in South Korea and China like KakaoPay and AliPay have also become increasingly popular as alternatives to banks as the preferred payment systems of both businesses and individuals.
Prior to its integration of Bitcoin, Square was already being utilized as an online payments platform that is popular among millennials and new generation users that refrain from utilizing banking systems.
Square’s Bitcoin integration almost instantly appealed to its existing user and client base, as a large portion of the global population that is interested in cryptocurrencies has consistently been millennials throughout the past several years.

Cada vez son más los criptoactivos que podemos adquirir, por lo que Coinbase no quiere quedarse atrás y ha anunciado la posibilidad de añadir nuevos activos a su oferta aparte de Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin y Ethereum Classic.
Su objetivo es ofrecer soporte en su plataforma para todos los activos que cumplan con sus estándares y que resulten compatibles con la legislación local evaluando factores como la seguridad, el cumplimiento y la alineación del proyecto con su misión de crear un sistema financiero abierto para todo el mundo.
Estas son las posibilidades que explora Coinbase: Cardano (ADA), Aeternity (AE), Aragon (ANT), Bread Wallet (BRD), Civic (CVC), Dai (DAI), district0x (DNT), EnjinCoin (ENJ), EOS (EOS), Golem Network (GNT), IOST (IOST), Kin (KIN), Kyber Network (KNC), ChainLink (LINK), Loom Network (LOOM), Loopring (LRC), Decentraland (MANA), Mainframe (MFT), Maker (MKR), NEO (NEO), OmiseGo (OMG), Po.et (POE), QuarkChain (QKC), Augur (REP), Request Network (REQ), Status (SNT), Storj (STORJ), Stellar (XLM), XRP (XRP), Tezos (XTZ) y Zilliqa (ZIL). Esto no significa que todas estas criptomonedas se vayan a sumar en próximas fechas a la plataforma, pero supone un gran paso hacia la adopción generalizada de estos criptoactivos.
Coinbase es la primera casa de cambio de criptomonedas en poder listar tokens regulados como valores con la aprobación de la Comisión de Bolsa y Valores de Estados Unidos (SEC), y su plataforma es una de las casas de cambio más cómodas y sencillas de usar.
Myth buster [Reading time:30 sec] ○“Blockchain = Bitcoin = Anonimato”
La Blockchain è una tecnologia molto versatile che permette l’esecuzione di transazioni peer to peer consentendo che queste siano iscritte in un registro distribuito, il Bitcoin d’altra parte si concretizza nelle cripto valute, una delle possibili applicazioni della Blockchain, il quale può essere scambiato liberamente tra le parti senza passare da un istituzione centrale. ○ “Volatilità nel valore = inaffidabilità della Blockchain”
La volatilità nel controvalore delle numerose cryptovalute nate su diversi protocolli non inficia la tecnologia che ne è alla base. ○“Le cryptovalute sono utilizzate per scopi criminali”
La decentralizzazione e l’impressione di poter mantenere l’anonimato sono aspetti interessanti per il settore dell’illecito, ma sono altrettanto interessanti per chi vive in paesi dove l’affidabilità delle istituzioni è bassa, la corruzione alta e i processi democratici scarsamente applicati.
In termini statistici secondo la ricerca svolta da “Elliptic” e “Center on Sanctions & illecit Finance” dal 2013 al 2016 sul totale delle transazioni solo lo 0,61% sono state generate da proventi illeciti.
E poi non esisteva forse già prima delle cripto valute la criminalità?

At the December 7, 2018, TenX Summit, a group of developers showcased an industry first: an atomic swap between a non-native asset, TenX’s PAY token, and a native asset, bitcoin.
By non-native, the team is referring to an asset/coin that is not the base currency for the network. For Ethereum, for example, the native asset is ether, while any token that is built on the protocol is considered a non-native asset.
CoBloX, a TenX research and development lab, is responsible for the achievement. Demonstrating their work to a tightly packed audience of summit goers, the team used the Lightning Network and their proprietary software COMIT to swap 10 PAY for 71,240 satoshis. The team published a blog post on December 12, 2018, to confirm the news and satify what it calls “the gossip factory” of he-said-she-said following the summit.
In the post, the team delves into their process, explaining outright that this swap was not as simple as the first-ever ether and bitcoin atomic swap they tested nearly six months ago. Whereas this swap’s hashed time lock contract (HTLC) only required a single use smart contract, the PAY to bitcoin swap took an extra step.
Reason being, the PAY token itself is managed with an additional smart contract known as the transfer ownership function. Because of this, the HTLC had to be separated into two transactions: one to deploy the swap contract and another as a transfer call for the PAY tokens.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t figure out how to combine these two steps. The ERC20 transfer function uses msg.sender for authentication. However, calling transfer from a contract deployment sets msg.sender to the address of the yet-to-be-deployed contract which obviously has no tokens,” the blog post reads. #Coinbase#Bitcoin#Ethereum#cryptocurrency#Litecoin#Ripple#Trading#Stocks#Money#BTC#StockMarket#Wealth#Rich#Millionaire#Cash#EndtheFed#Libertarian#DayTrading#Hodl#Business#Success#FUD#economy#Market#digital#Stacks#Investments#Profit#atomicswaps

The SEC has again delayed its deadline for an ETF to Feb 27th.
What is an ETF? Will it be approved? Do we need it? Briefly; yes, we do. Anyone saying otherwise has trading knowledge which goes no further than cryptocurrency. These are important questions with answers that need to be understood.
What is the SEC and an ETF?
The SEC are the “police” of US markets. Shunned by many, such as Elon Musk who recently said “I do not respect the SEC” after accused of manipulating Tesla’s price. Respected by some, for promoting stability in markets and protecting investors. An ETF requires approval from the SEC. In the most basic sense, an ETF is a fund that owns multiple stocks but has its ownership divided into shares that trade on stock exchanges. The benefit is that you can diversify your portfolio into these multiple stocks by purchasing one share of an ETF. For example, if the cryptocurrency ETF was approved, 1 share would diversify your investment into multiple currencies picked by an ETF manager. Perfect for institutional investors.
Will it be approved?
Likely. If they weren’t approving a BTC ETF the decision would have already been made. These delays are simply time bought to establish how they are going to carry out the approval.
Do we need it?
For profitable trading? No. For a bull market? Yes. It may be the catalyst of 2019 (a major event shifting market sentiment). People don’t realise that an ETF approval is more than permission, it’s a global “green light” from the SEC. Furthermore, ETF’s are a revolutionary product. Above I have shown the impact of the first Gold ETF in 2003. They are simple and streamlined paths to diversification favoured by funds and pensions across the globe, who have more purchasing power than all retail investors combined. Think of the liquidity this will bring essential for a currency to operate (see our post “why 99% of altcoins are worthless”). Funnily, all the SEC is trying to do is protect your parents pension from being stolen like the other $1.1 billion cryptocurrency this year. Fund managers are natural risk takers and will jump at the first BTC ETF. It’s up to the SEC to keep the investors safe.
