Fulford presented the idea that generation Y captivates a new buying behaviour, encouraging the crypto currency pattern to progress, adapt and enhance to a playing ground understood by society. Bitfarms has initiated a partnership with the students of École De Technologie (ETS) in Montreal, towards developing new applications and growth in the industry.

“BC is a great place for mining companies that are looking to supply their operations with low cost and clean power. We ensure clean energy resources fulfill future demands and initiatives” BC Hydro’s, Dina Matterson says. The clean energy topic is an increasingly important subject to the next generation. It is an important puzzle piece to educating ourselves on the crypto currency landscape and leading with green practice in mind.

Coinbase Upgrades

Coinbase Upgrades | Wallet App and OTC Desk Get Improvements

Coinbase has released two large announcements regarding features on some of its platforms in the last 24 hours. The San Fransico-based cryptocurrency exchange made a large upgrade to its Coinbase wallet, and it also announced that Coinbase Custody is directly integrated with its OTC trading desk. The new Coinbase upgrades should have crypto enthusiasts thrilled.

Coinbase Upgrades: Wallet App

Coinbase users can now rejoice because the company just released a feature that allows users to directly transfer their cryptocurrency holdings on the Coinbase website to accounts in the wallet app. This new update is not yet added to the Wallet app but will be released in a few days.

>> Crypto News: SEC Rules ETH NOT Security; Binance Adds XRP

Coinbase users still need to use the company’s main website to buy cryptocurrency. The company claims that the Wallet app is used to store cryptocurrency and is safeguarded by a private key that only the user knows. The new Coinbase upgrade to the Wallet app doesn’t allow you to purchase crypto if your balance is running low, but the company has plans in the future to add this feature. In the blog post, the cryptocurrency exchange also says it plans on making it easier for users to send the digital currency back to Coinbase’s website from the Coinbase wallet.

Coinbase Upgrades: Custody

Coinbase Custody, a product aimed at aiding institutional cryptocurrency adoption, announced this morning that it is now directly linked to Coinbase’s OTC desk. Custody was launched to draw in institutional investors and make it easier for them to buy digital currencies. This new upgrade integration with Custody and the OTC Desk further the goal of aiding institutional investors. Clients that use Coinbase Custody can now leverage the OTC desk to price and confirm trades before ever moving the funds.

Both of these new Coinbase upgrades are geared towards two different target audiences. The company continues to expand on various different outlets of its company to try and keep up with the other exchanges and players in the space. Many of the other digital exchanges have made strong headway with their OTC trade desks, but Coinbase stands out with its own group dedicated specifically to the institutional investor.

Jack Dorsey

Jack Dorsey, Bitcoin Evangelist, Speaks About Square in Recent Podcast

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has earned himself the title of ‘Bitcoin Evangelist’—such is his advocation for digital assets. His support of Bitcoin has been consistent and unwavering.

Dorsey, as a successful businessman, is hard to ignore. His support for the leading cryptocurrency spurs on Bitcoin bulls and those who love a strong voice supporting their views.

Jack Dorsey’s Square

The entrepreneur recently participated in a podcast called “Tales from the Crypt” where he spoke about buying Bitcoin.

Interestingly, he told how he “maximizes the $10,000 Bitcoin purchase limit on Square Cash to acquire the leading cryptocurrency.”

Square is a payments platform with a built-in cash app. This allows its users to send money to others in an instant.

With a merchant payment system embedded, it is also aimed at the everyday worker who has to send invoices, for example.

According to its website:

“We’re empowering the electrician to send invoices, setting up the food truck with a delivery option, helping the clothing boutique pay its employees, and giving the coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location.”

The businessman believes platforms like Square are the future for cryptocurrency.

March has been an interesting month for Bitcoin. The top coin by market cap has been growing, and the entire cryptocurrency market has added $6 billion to its valuation. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is selling for $3,909. However, it nearly breached the $4,000 mark during the week. Bullish calls from Jack Dorsey and other prominent figures are helping to cause a lift.

Brian Kelly

Earlier in the week, for example, Brian Kelly, CEO of BKCM, said he believed the “crypto winter” was ending. Since he spoke, Bitcoin price rebounded to over the $3,900 mark. He said further that Bitcoin is showing improvement:

“If you look at the number of addresses that have been created on the Bitcoin network, that’s up about 20 percent from the January lows, it’s apt highs at the levels we saw in the spring of 2018 when Bitcoin was well above $6,000. So fundamentally, you’re starting to see improvement.”

What do you think? Do the sentiments of successful businessmen such as Jack Dorsey encourage you to back crypto?

MPWR’s QuadrigaCX Talk: Amy Said It Best, How the Hell Did We Get Here?

Vancouver, BC. March 13th 2019 – – Amy Castor, Forbes blockchain and crypto contributor, took the stage Monday afternoon at the MPWR Crypto Mining Summit 2019 to break down the incredibly engaging topic of QuadrigaCX.

The talk attracted a sold out room filled with crypto enthusiasts, founders and CEO’s of leading companies such as Bitfarms, Hive Blockchain, Outlier Solutions and Mining Sky, to hear the story of how a Vancouver based company experienced the deep downfall the crypto and blockchain industry can cause.

Amy’s comprehensible outline of the case was both eye …

Crypto News | SEC Rules ETH NOT Security; Binance Adds XRP

The cryptocurrency market is making a comeback this week, after closing out last week in the red. Crypto news was pretty slow last week, but it has picked up a bit today. This morning, CoinCenter released news that the SEC Chairman confirmed that ETH is not ruled as a security by the regulator. In addition to this big news, Binance announced it has added XRP and credit card payment support to its Trust Wallet app.

Let’s get into it!

Jay Clayton Rules ETH a “Non-Security”

When investors began taking notice of digital currencies in mid-2017, the US Securities and Exchange Commission started researching and commenting on the industry too. The SEC’s main purpose is to protect investors, facilitate capital formation, and maintain fair, efficient, and orderly markets. Jay Claton, the SEC’s Commissioner, hasn’t been shy in voicing his view of digital currencies from the start.

The SEC was mostly concerned with Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and made definitive decisions on whether coins offered in this fundraising method were subject to SEC rules and considered an official ‘security.’ Now it seems the official consensus of the SEC regarding other digital currencies was released on March 7th, when Clayton addressed US Representative Tedd Budd in a statement.

In the official statement, Clayton confirms that ETH and cryptocurrencies like it aren’t securities under US law. This is a win for the cryptocurrency community, but this news is not completely surprising, considering Clayton has held a similar stance for years.

Binance Wallet Adds XRP and Credit Card Purchase Support

Another piece of large crypto news released today surrounds Binance, the world’s most popular cryptocurrency exchange by 24-hour trade volume.

Trust Wallet, the official wallet of the crypto exchange, has just added support for credit card purchases and XRP. Last July, Binance acquired Trust Wallet in the company’s first public acquisition. Currently, the Trust Wallet supports BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, and BCH. Binance’s main wallet also holds support for any ERC20, ERC223, and ERC721 tokens.

Users can now use their credit card on the Trust Wallet app to buy digital currencies. Adding this feature now makes it easier for investors to purchase and use digital currencies.
