BNC public chain officially launched on March 19

BNC public chain officially launched on March 19
According to the official BNC public chain, they will be launching synchronous on 19th March globally in nine countries (China, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines and Brunei) and 30 communities. This cause strong attention within the industry, especially attention to value and ecology of Proof-of-Capacity (PoC) from blockchain experts. Website and forum in Europe, America and Southeast Asia have a hot pursuit of BNC, hundreds of media vying for coverage. At the same time, attention of BNC is rising because of Proof-of-Capacity (PoC) technology development have a worldwide boom.

https://preview.redd.it/jcseqh15cem41.png?width=559&format=png&auto=webp&s=cef25e0877980f50d7c565eff679c502be62b163
Easy to say, nature of PoC is mining through hard disk, PoW is mining through CPU (or graphics cards, ASIC, these are stronger computing chips, PoS is mining through the proportion of cryptocurrency holdings, while DPoS is voting to decide super node.

https://preview.redd.it/c2kwytw8cem41.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=169a41f4c4577049ea799b61a14827b2f29fc715
Our main character today PoC has something in common with Bitcoin PoW, but there are some substantive differences. As we know, Bitcoin PoW requires miners to perform hash calculations continuously and repeatedly. miners need to run their computing chips with high intensity and consume extremely high power resources.
BNC will change the pyramid situation that BTC facing at present: The high monopoly of the big mining farm caused the increasing centralization of mines leading to monopolization of large households and national policy pressures.
Large electricity consumption and noise and heat from mining machines do not meet environmental restrictions in more than 159 countries so the whole mining was ruled by the elite. As a result, ordinary users can't participate in BTC's decision-making at all.
BNC's ultimate dream is to focus on the pain of the existing market, achieve low threshold entry mining for everyone! Everyone mining!

https://preview.redd.it/r3rl26vbcem41.png?width=436&format=png&auto=webp&s=1c3d1377febf5993b1158c24a8f5a0c961f15d4a
Computing power cost is also one of the important indexes of mining revenue. Computing power cost include competition for performance and equipment, mining machine's computing power determined the day's mining earnings. Quality of PoW machine depends on computing power, but the higher the power, the higher the price. The impact of a mining machine worth tens of thousands on the return cycle is also significant. The greater the computing power, the greater the energy consumption. Electricity consumption of mining is staggering, so mining farm have to relocate to low electricity fees area, but a lot of power is wasted. By comparison, power consumption of BNC hard disk is lower, energy consumption is the same as running a computer.

https://preview.redd.it/psbezjjecem41.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=95c88aa9241d184a46fd1a3525bdf2183137614e
After the industry goes through the bull bear cycle, heat and cold alternate reshuffle period, PoC hard disk mining direction effect will become more and more obvious. Failure to focus on compliance, lack of quality asset-selection capabilities, lack of technology build-up and business innovation capabilities will be difficult to survive.
BNC cling to the front of the times, each time the layout is only for better brilliance. At a time when the mature Internet is combined with blockchain, BNC will create a new wave of wealth, bring more investors to believe that everyone can mining, every investor in cryptocurrency is back at the top of wealth. BNC strive to build PoC hard disk mining, creating unparalleled wealth myths.

https://preview.redd.it/f8s7yuogcem41.png?width=531&format=png&auto=webp&s=92785eb07805d4b9f3970f8303eaae81943e7f6a
BNC knows that innovation can drive development and create new brilliance.
BNC lets you experience the explosion of POC hard disk mining mode! If you have a dream, come to BNC to make your digital assets truly valuable!

Malaysian Securities Regulator Registers Three Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Malaysian Securities Regulator Registers Three Cryptocurrency Exchanges
The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) has registered cryptocurrency exchanges Luno Malaysia, Sinegy Technologies and Tokenize Technology, according to a press release on June 4.

Crypto exchanges are reportedly required by law to register with the SC, and the recently-approved exchanges will have up to nine months to achieve compliance with the SC’s regulation standards.

In a statement shared with Cointelegraph, Luno stated that the aforementioned three exchanges are the only registered digital asset exchanges to operate in Malaysia. Luno General Manager of Southeast Asia David Low said:

“We’ve been working closely with regulators and banks to complete the groundwork for the buying, selling and storing of cryptocurrencies and digital assets, which we believe are the future of money. Regulation will ultimately bring clarity and protection to consumers, and will ensure that all cryptocurrency businesses have adequate standards in place to protect investors and their funds.”

The SC introduced the Capital Markets and Services (Prescription of Securities) (Digital Currency and Digital Token) Order 2019 on January 15, followed shortly by its revised Guidelines on Recognized Markets on January 31.

As previously reported on Cointelegraph, the service order on January 15 definitively classified cryptocurrencies as securities, meaning they fall under the SC’s legal purview.

Since January, the SC has published two papers addressed to the public with the intent of gathering feedback on its proposed initial coin offering (ICO) regulations as one of its agenda items.

In Canada, the Canadian Securities Administrators and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada released papers for public feedback on proposed cryptocurrency regulations, to which the major exchange Kraken replied with heavy disagreement and criticism. One of Kraken’s main claims in its reply was that neither cryptocurrencies, nor the agreements between exchanges and users, constituted securities at all.

The market is about to boom, are you ready?


The token market has been chaotic for more than a year.
During the year, the price of Bitcoin fell from 20,000 US dollars to less than 3,300 US dollars, from all eyes on you to falling from the altar. The major coins also fell its footsteps, fell and fell again.
Recently, it has finally ushered in the spring season. After more than a year of cold winter, there was a little vitality. First, the platform coin started a sustained upward trend, and then the trend of other major mainstream coins also recovered sharply.
The rise is still going on.
Investors with quick of eye and deft of hand have already entered the market, and those who are still hesitating may be about to miss the opportunity.
In this round of rising market, the performance of the platform token is remarkable. In particular, the platform token of the Wafcoin token trading platform.
Registered in the Virgin Islands in 2018, wafcoin is the world's first dual-license trading platform. Its operations management center is headquartered in Australia and has independent operation teams in Germany, Estonia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, India and other countries and regions. It is a professional token transaction service provider for the world.
The generation of WA, based on the fourth-generation blockchain technology, optimizes complex OTC purchases, allowing users to quickly and conveniently carry out trading operations; Enter with zero capital, get profit with no capital risk, etc., to avoid many risks for users, to stabilize the security of asset.
WA's value advantage helps it become the preferred investment: the number of global issuance will never increase, and it will help it have a very high investment value; Wafcoin platform cooperates with cross-border e-commerce Newbuy to use WA to purchase goods to further increase the value of WA; The field expands into the housing industry, tourism, and accelerates the landing application of payment and other functions.
From the overall layout and development trend of WA, it mainly includes three aspects: upgrading technology and consolidating its own advantages; providing users with high-quality services for practical reasons; expanding application landing scenarios and enhancing their own value. This is also why WA can get through the bear market and finally stand in front of the world as a winner.
A new round of rise has already begun. I hope every investor can seize the opportunity and get what he wants.

Turning Taiwan's largest electronic sound festival into a virtual currency application lab...

Turning Taiwan's largest electronic sound festival into a virtual currency application lab...
Quick and dirty translation of the recent ULTRA Festival article on Yahoo Mobile (China) - linked below...
https://preview.redd.it/64psurff93m11.png?width=1160&format=png&auto=webp&s=78b4bab7db4f9e09dd7c01ef762688c32553969f
Fireworks, dry ice, screams, the second weekend of September, Taipei Dajia Riverside Park gathered tens of thousands of people, they are the fans of the world's largest electronic music party Ultra Music Festival (hereinafter referred to as Ultra). After many years of hard work, this grand event originated from Miami, Florida, was officially held in Taiwan for the first time. It not only brought the world's top 100 DJ lineups, the US officially designed luxury stage, but also a large number of overseas fans.
The rock and roll men and women in the party held a color card in their hands, and the transactions of the 39 stall vendors on the spot were completed by it. Surprisingly, this card called X Pass is not the new Taiwanese currency, but the virtual currency U coin developed for the event with the blockchain concept. Let the original focus on the ultrasound. Suddenly added one more identity - the world's largest blockchain application laboratory.
The protagonist of this experiment is the founder of the Southeast Asian blockchain company Pundi X, a 35-year-old Malaysian Chinese, Zac Cheah.
In the popular blockchain industry, most people want to profit from the issuance and trading of virtual currency. However, he rarely invests in the application and puts the funds raised into hardware. "What I hope to solve is the real trading of virtual currency. The question." Xie Zibin further explained, "I want to be a blockchain version of Visa, so that people can easily buy things in virtual currency in their daily lives."
He raised 1.1 billion yuan for machine-built money , and nearly four times the market value of his own virtual currency.
Xie Zibin's Pundi X launched ICO (Initial Coin Offering) at the beginning of this year, and launched a virtual currency code-named NPXS. The funds raised will be 100,000 XPOS, just like Visa's credit card machine, which is made around the world. Virtual currency can be consumed and applied in real life, and it is no longer just a "currency" that is invisible in the cloud.
Investors who participate in the Fundi X fundraising can get the virtual currency NPXS, which is also the conversion currency used to operate all virtual currency transactions on XPOS, which is the medium of trading.
Unexpectedly, this concept raised $35 million (about NT$1.1 billion) in 90 minutes, and rushed into the top 10 ICOs in the world.
Long-term focus on the blockchain industry source Platinum Capital Executive Changhu said that although the ICO frenzy has raised more than a billion dollars in the world since the ICO frenzy, "but from the perspective of a single startup, ICO can get it. $35 million, this is definitely a lot of money."
According to the virtual currency quote website CoinMarketCap, the market value of Bitcoin has shrunk by more than 60% since the beginning of this year, but the market value of NPXS has grown nearly four times against the trend, reaching US$170 million (about NT$5.3 billion) and entering the world. The top 50 list of virtual currency market capitalization.
Why is the price of NPXS continuing to rise? Xie Zibin said that because it is a virtual currency with real use scenarios, it can continue to create so much demand and value. In this regard, Hu Day agreed, "In the big bear market where the virtual currency is turbulent, it can still maintain the rise, I believe the market has given the answer."
Born in Malaysia, from the Xiao Nian Chinese Language School, Xie Zibin from the Institute of Studies in Sweden and Norway, joined the World Wide Web inventor Bernard. Lee's W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) promotes the new web page specification HTML5.
Fighting for Differentiation" won the hardware of the top 100 Microsoft high-level cooperation coin circle, no one is playing, he is alone
He recalled that in 2010, the specifications of the web pages used by people were the hegemony of the overlord. The two strong ones were: Flash controlled by a Adobe company, and HTML thought by a number of companies. In the same year, Xie Zibin served as the promotion chairman of the latter in China. "That experience has influenced me a lot. The design of HTML follows the "consensus decision". Everyone has to vote for a thing to develop."
As it became the global mainstream step by step, Xie Zibin deeply realized that the open source is greater than the monopoly spirit, and the blockchain technology with "decentralization" as the core value became his first choice when starting a business.
David Ben Kay, former China's former legal chief, has run a new incubator in Beijing. "I have met many entrepreneurs. Those geniuses have a vision, but there are not many people who can listen to others. Zac There are a few who have ideals and abilities, but they remain open." He also mentioned that Xie Zibin insisted on being a blockchain product that everyone can use in his life. He is from the director of Ethereum, Microsoft China Law Chief, etc. At the time of his retirement, he nodded as an important reason for the Pundi X legal chief.
However, even if it is put into the blockchain application, there are still many options, most of which can be solved by writing code. Why does Xie Zibin have to go to Shenzhen, China to find a factory to do hardware? "The first wave of people coming in is a soft body, and the homogenization is very serious. You see no one in the top 100." Xie Zibin said, "But I think the blockchain is definitely not the only way!" Give the industry a different spark, let Xie Zibin embark on a more twisted but wonderful road than others.
Benefit sharing, tandem three-party people provide low-cost machines to attract merchants to join
What is special about this XPOS?
At first glance, it is no different from the POS (point-of-sales intelligence system) machine in the general store, but it is a clever way to benefit three-party users: consumers, businesses, and blockchain developers. Wen Ruo-ting, vice president of Pundi X, stated, “Consumers who use XPOS to pay or purchase virtual currency only need to pay 1% more fees, which is more cost-effective than traditional 5% (virtual currency) exchanges. At the same time, merchants earn more than this. The handling fee will increase the profit."
In addition to guests and stores, XPOS also hopes to be the underlying platform for blockchain developers, allowing different developers to develop their own applications on this machine. Huang Pu, the technology chief of Pundi X, said that its technology can help other blockchain applications reduce development costs. For example, BusinessWeek can issue "Business Week" in XPOS, and can also develop applications such as smart contracts subscribed to by magazines. It is a revolution in the blockchain world."
As for the business model, Pundi X does not rely on this machine to make money, but provides merchants at a very low price, so that it can quickly expand globally, and the main income comes from the distribution.
Qiu Yujia, CEO of the EMBA of the University of Political Science and Technology, said that the Pundi X is in line with the three elements of the new economy towards the user era: the use of technology, the experience of being king, and multiple roles. "Especially the third point of "multiple roles", this POS becomes a platform for customers, businesses, and companies interested in developing applications to serve each other. Compared with traditional POS, it has more roles as a splicer and aggregator. I think There is potential." There are not enough users of the Challenge to educate the market and seize the market. However, after all, the top 100 people in the currency circle are nowhere to go, and the difficulties faced by Pundi X are more challenging.
Wang Mengdie, founder of China's blockchain media "Star Daily", said at a summit that the biggest problem in the blockchain industry is that there are no users, only investors and speculators. Therefore, just as if no one used a credit card, Visa's machines were designed to be better, faster, and useless. How much demand for virtual currency transactions will grow in the next few years is a test that Pundi X can't avoid.
Even if the market for virtual currency real transactions can really expand, Hu Day pointed out that, like the large exchange ICE recently to cooperate with Starbucks to pay for virtual currency, XPOS coverage is fast enough to compete with these giants.
In addition, virtual currency has the unpredictable nature of the ups and downs. Wang Zhide, founder of Bitu, a virtual currency exchange, evaluated the experience of establishing a blockchain incubator in Shibuya. "The currency price fluctuation is too large. "Not strong," he said. "In the long run, he thinks, "When the blockchain industry develops, it will definitely be necessary for the market to solve the pain of real payment."
Xie Zibin also understands that the success or failure of Pundi X depends on the needs of real trading, and the education market and market share are the top priorities. At present, XPOS has received 25,000 orders, and he hopes to reach the target of 100,000 units in three years. In addition, in order to expand the use of ethnic groups, it is expected that another hardware product will be launched by the end of this year, extending the same concept from the merchant to the consumer.
Although the road ahead is not clear, Xie Zibin, who has decided to use the consensus and applied, has already verified his charm by the virtual currency market. The number of the Pundi X team has grown by more than 100 people in just two years. "I don't want to play speculative games. Blockchain has more possibilities than speculative coins." The blockchain enters human life and realizes that it no longer relies on the financial transactions of financial institutions. It is the moment to truly develop and take off. This road When will it be achieved? Xie Zibin’s entrepreneurial direction is the beginning.

US Futures Jump On Fresh Hopes For China Trade Deal, Dovish Powell Speech

In a generally quiet overnight session, renewed hopes for a thaw in U.S.-China trade relations at the upcoming G20 summit helped global shares rise to a one-week high on Wednesday, though lingering fears of a no-deal outcome weighed on European bourses. U.S. futures rose, extending on Tuesday's rebound and tracking gains in Asia as investors rekindled their risk appetite before a key speech by Fed chair Powell who many hope will reverse yesterday's hawkish rhetoric by Clarida, and come off as dovish, especially after this morning's report that Steve Mnuchin has been pushing for a shift from hiking rates to balance sheet reduction. The dollar and Treasuries were steady.

While President Donald Trump talked tough on the trade tariffs issue ahead of a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday, markets focused on comments by White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, who held open the possibility that the two countries would reach a trade deal. Kudlow’s comments helped Wall Street close higher and allowed Chinese and Japanese shares to rally 1% as the MSCI index of Asian shares ex-Japan gained 0.7%.
The mood however fizzled into the European session, with the pan-European index giving up opening gains to trade flat and Germany’s DAX trading unchanged. Technology companies and retailers were the best performers in the Stoxx Europe 600 Index, which struggled to maintain early gains as a Tuesday report that Trump may soon decide about new taxes on imported cars, still weighed on sentiment, keeping Europe’s auto sector shares 0.6 percent in the red.

"An expectation is being priced into markets ahead of the G20 meeting that we will see some deal or at least a framework for a deal between Trump and (Chinese President) Xi Jinping,” said Bernd Berg, global macro strategist at Switzerland-based Woodman Asset Management. “But if they come out with nothing this weekend, it’s going to be very bad."
Traders are also focusing on a speech at 12pm ET by Fed Chair Jerome Powell to see if he offers clues on how many more times the Fed could raise interest rates, following yesterday's modestly hawkish if cautious take from vice chair Clarida.
While Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida took a less dovish stance on Tuesday than some had expected and backed more rate rises, Powell and his colleagues have in recent weeks alluded to global volatility, leading many to speculate the bank’s three-year-long rate rise campaign could pause in 2019.
Continued uncertainty over global trade as well as Brexit and Italy’s ongoing conflict with the European Union, have supported the U.S. dollar, which rose to a two-week high and approached the highest level hit in 2018.
While the main driver for the greenback is the U.S. interest rate path, Rodrigo Catril, senior strategist at National Australia Bank, said it was also benefiting from the uncertain mood. “Markets seem to be jumping at shadows at the moment and against this backdrop of uncertainty, the dollar remains the preferred option for weathering the storm,” Catril said.
Investors are also monitoring developments in Italy’s row with the EU over its budget spending, with Germany’s Handelsblatt and Italy’s La Stampa quoting EU commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis as saying the draft budget needed “substantial correction”.
The 10-year Treasury yield drifted ahead of Jerome Powell’s speech as European bonds nudged higher and the Euro was range bound. Italian bond yields flatlined after sharp rallies that were triggered by what appeared to be a more conciliatory stance from the government over the issue.
The dollar was mixed versus its Group-of-10 peers, trading in narrow ranges ahead of key events this week and EUUSD hovered below 1.1300; Treasuries were little changed with the 10-year yield at 3.05%. Sweden’s krona gained even after retail sales and an economic tendency survey missed estimates. The pound trimmed some of the previous session’s losses as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May appeared to back down in a key Brexit battle with Parliament.
Brent crude handed back earlier gains to trade little changed. Brent (-0.4%) and WTI (-0.1%) are lower heading into the US open after initially trading positive. A larger than expected build in API crude stockpiles of +3.453mln compared to the expected build of +0.8mln had little impact on the price rebound at the time which instead focused on the larger than expected gasoline draw. Additionally, three North Sea forties crude cargoes which were scheduled to load in December have been cancelled due to the temporary closure of the 150,000 BPD capacity Buzzard oilfield. Saudi Energy minister Al Falih stated this morning that Saudi will not and cannot reduce output on their own, and is hopeful that upcoming meetings will result in agreement to stabilise the market.
Gold is slightly lower as the dollar continues to firm, although the yellow metal has rebounded from lows of USD 1211.3/oz in the previous session. Separately, copper is higher following a 3-session decline although, gains for the metal have been restricted by ongoing US-China tensions, with the most recent comments coming from White House Economic Advisor Kudlow saying that US President Trump is prepared to raise tariffs if G20 talks are not constructive.
On other markets, cryptocurrency bitcoin jumped 6 percent to above $4,000, its biggest one day jump since the summer, and extending its rebound from a low of $3,475 touched on Sunday.
Today's expected data include mortgage applications, wholesale inventories, and new home sales. Burlington Stores, Royal Bank of Canada, Tiffany, and Weibo are among companies reporting earnings.
Market Snapshot
Top Overnight News from Bloomberg
Asian equity markets traded mostly positive following a similar lead from Wall St. but with the session initially mired by lingering uncertainty regarding US-China trade relations. Nikkei 225 (+1.0%) outperformed as the index coat-tailed on the recent advances in USD/JPY, while ASX 200 (-0.1%) was subdued by weakness in miners after the metals complex felt the brunt of the recent USD strength and with financials subdued by AMP Capital amid risk of further mischarging cases and provisions. Elsewhere, Hang Seng (+1.3%) and Shanghai Comp. (+1.0%) were higher but with price action choppy in early trade amid tentativeness heading into the Trump-Xi showdown at this week’s G20 and as participants mulled over various comments from officials including White House Economic Adviser Kudlow who affirmed that Trump could hike tariffs if no constructive talks occur at G20 and that the White House is disappointed in China's response to the trade issue. However, Kudlow also noted that Trump is open to a deal with China and there were recent comments from China’s Vice Premier Liu that China wants a negotiated solution on trade based on mutual respect. Finally, 10yr JGBs weakened amid a lacklustre tone in T-note futures and with the BoJ’s presence in the bond market overshadowed by the outperformance of Japanese stocks. China's US envoy said selling or reducing purchases of US Treasuries would be very dangerous like playing with fire, while the envoy doesn't think anybody in Beijing is seriously thinking about pulling back from US Treasury debt market should tensions worsen. Furthermore, there were reports that China’s Ambassador to the US warned of dire consequences if the trade war leads to economic separation and that China prefers a negotiated solution, while the Ambassador warned that China will retaliate in proportion to any US sanctions regarding Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang.
Top Asian News - Bank of Thailand Minutes Signal an Interest-Rate Hike Is Coming - Furor Over Gene-Altered Babies Deepens With China Project Halted - Pakistan’s Umar Says No Hurry for IMF Deal as Talks Resume - Turkey Sinks to Last on Emerging-Market Scorecard; Malaysia Tops - Brookfield Is Said to Be in Talks to Invest in Dubai’s Meraas
In a slightly choppy session thus far, European equities (Eurostoxx 50 +0.3%) have held on to opening gains seen in the wake of the upbeat US and Asia-Pac sessions, despite lingering trade concerns. The most recent interjection came from White House Economic Adviser Kudlow who commented that Trump is open to a deal with China and that the raising of tariffs to 25% is not a "certainty" but will be implemented if no constructive talks occur at the G20. In terms of sector specifics, IT names are the clear outperformers at this stage of the session with Wirecard (+1.3%) and Dialog Semiconductor (+3.1%) notable gainers in the tech-space after trying to recoup recent losses with not much else in the way of key newsflow. Noteworthy individual movers include EDF (+3.1%) with shares buoyed by reports that that a potential increase in the French government’s stake in the Co. would take place next year. To the downside, Tenaris (-8.2%), sit at the foot of the Stoxx 600 after the Co.’s chairman was indicted in a graft case, whilst Continental shares (-5.4%) have been weighed on by negative comments from Redburn who have warned over the group’s EBIT prospects in 2019.
Top European News
In FX, the DXY was off bet levels but retaining an underlying bid with supportive month end flows alongside HIA and SOMA redemption (24.9bln comes due on Friday) all impacting, while market participants keep a close eye on Fed Chair Powell’s speech scheduled for later today where he may stop the USD in its tracks or exacerbate the rally. The index has gained more ground above 97.000 to just over 97.500 before losing some momentum but still on the course to challenge the YTD high at 97.693, technically if not fundamentally. EUR: more choppy trade for the single currency with EUUSD trading around the middle of a 1.1267-1.1304 range having taken out stops at 1.1275. Italian politics keep weighing on the currency with the European Commission unimpressed as it will begin disciplinary actions on Italy regarding debt before Christmas. EU Commissioner Dombrovskis also added that a cut of 0.2% of the 2019 budget target is not enough. EUUSD is being drawn towards a large amount of option expiries between 1.1275 – 1.1300 (1.5bln). Looking ahead, markets will be keeping a close eye on the budget discussion between the Italian PM, two Deputy PM and Finance Minister for any hints of a budge towards EC’s direction. CAD – Another victim of the USD strength and global trade jitters as Trump’s economic advisor Kudlow said the USMCA agreement is to be signed on Friday at the G20 summit, but sticking points remain in regards to dairy. Note, choppy oil prices have hardly helped the Loonie slide to fresh multi-month lows around 1.3330. JPY ­ - Edging closer to 114.00 vs. the buck with heavy option expiries around 113.50-55 (1.47bln) and 114.00 (1.9bln). EM – Mostly weaker as the greenback hold firm with RUB as the standout underperformer amid the ongoing escalation between Russia and Ukraine, though Germany and France stated they are against stricter Russian sanctions for now, while there were witness reports of a Russian minesweeper ship heading towards the Sea of Azov share by Russia and Ukraine. On the flip side, the Russian Central Bank governor emerged earlier with a hawkish tilt whilst keeping options open for the next meeting. Note, USD/RUB is at 67.4000.
In commodities, Brent (-0.4%) and WTI (-0.1%) are lower heading into the US open after initially trading positive. A larger than expected build in API crude stockpiles of +3.453mln compared to the expected build of +0.8mln had little impact on the price rebound at the time. Additionally, three North Sea forties crude cargoes which were scheduled to load in December have been cancelled due to the temporary closure of the 150,000 BPD capacity Buzzard oilfield. Saudi Energy minister Al Falih stated this morning that Saudi will not and cannot reduce output on their own, and is hopeful that upcoming meetings will result in agreement to stabilise the market. Gold is slightly lower as the dollar continues to firm, although the yellow metal has rebounded from lows of USD 1211.3/oz in the previous session. Separately, copper is higher following a 3-session decline although, gains for the metal have been restricted by ongoing US-China tensions, with the most recent comments coming from White House Economic Advisor Kudlow saying that US President Trump is prepared to raise tariffs if G20 talks are not constructive.
Looking at the day ahead, the focus for the market is likely to be squarely with Fed Chair Powell’s speech. Away from that we also have the second revision of Q3 GDP in the US where no change from the +3.5% qoq saar estimate is expected. The October advance goods trade balance reading should also be closely watched with the consensus expecting a widening in the deficit to $77bn from $76bn last month. Also due out in the US will be October new home sales and the Richmond Fed manufacturing index print. It is another busy day for ECB speakers however with Coeure, Guindos and Praet all due to speak. The BoE’s Carney will also speak at the Financial Stability Report press conference this afternoon when we will also get the latest annual bank stress test results.
US Event Calendar
DB's Jim Reid concludes the overnight wrap
One thing I haven’t heard much about this year is a Santa Claus rally but the US has now had two up days in a row for the first time since mid month so maybe Santa is trying to get some momentum going. In fact given the conviction with which markets have moved in recent weeks, yesterday was a actually a rare calmer day with US equities opening lower but floating upward into their close. The S&P 500 ended +0.33% despite opening down -0.66%, while the DOW gained +0.44% and the NASDAQ closed flat. Attention continues to focus on this weekend’s meeting between Presidents Trump and Xi. The White House’s top economic advisor Larry Kudlow confirmed today that the two leaders will have dinner on Saturday night at the G-20 in Buenos Aires. He said that “there is a good possibility that we can make a deal” and “I don’t want to go overboard, but he [Trump] has indicated some optimism.” So hopes are continuing to build, and emerging market equities, which would benefit from a benign trade outcome, outperformed yesterday gaining +0.70%.
Apple continues to struggle and traded -0.22% lower yesterday as concerns continue regarding the company’s demand outlook and possible tariffs on components for their goods. Notably, Microsoft overtook it to become the world’s largest company by market cap again for the first time since October 2003! The last time Microsoft was larger than Apple was back in May 2010 (though at that time, Exxon Mobile was larger than either of the tech giants). Since Apple peaked in early October, it has shed around $300 billion of market cap, while Microsoft has shed ‘only’ $60 billion, or the equivalent of Pakistan’s GDP to the equivalent of Panama’s respectively. So in 7 weeks Apple has lost the entire annual GDP of a country with 197 million people in terms of market cap.
Europe struggled after an early positive open to close slightly lower across the board with the STOXX 600 ending -0.26%. Part of the reason for the dip in Europe seemed to lie with a story in the German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche (WiWo) which reported that President Trump may, as soon as next week, impose tariffs on cars imported into the US. However the details of the story appeared vague with the source also referencing “EU circles,” while the EU later rebutted the story. That said, autos lagged the wider market in the STOXX 600 yesterday with the sector down -2.52% with EU Trade Commissioner Malmstrom also repeating the warning of the risk of US tariffs on cars.
Making much less of impact on markets yesterday than his speech from two weeks ago were the comments from Fed Vice-Chair Clarida. It’s hard to argue that there was much new information for the market with many of his points a rehash from the October speech. Interestingly, there was no mention of financial conditions, global growth, or recent market volatility which is perhaps a touch hawkish at the margin, as it potentially signals the Fed isn’t hugely concerned about recent developments. Also, Clarida had previously outlined both upside and downside risks to the inflation outlook, but yesterday he dropped his reference to the downside scenario. The flip side however was Clarida’s mention that market- and survey-based measures of inflation expectations had slipped and also that, with an uncertain r-star, the Fed should infer its level from incoming market and economic data. Treasuries appeared fairly nonfussed though with 10-year yields moving as much as +1.8bps higher but quickly snapping back before ending the session close to flat at 3.055%. The USD index gained +0.31%. Later in the session, Chicago Fed President Evans highlighted that inflation is at target and said he favours getting policy back to neutral. The market did not react, but his comments are significant as he will be a voting member of the FOMC in 2019. His most recent vote was a dissent against the rate hike in December 2017.
Staying with the Fed, today the baton passes to Fed Chair Powell when he speaks at the Economic Club of New York at 5pm GMT on “The Federal Reserve’s framework for monitoring financial stability.” Our US economists previously highlighted that they expect Powell to reiterate the Fed’s plan to get back to neutral. However, since Powell has previously emphasized that neutral is highly uncertain, they are also watching for any hints that Powell sees recent market developments and/or slower activity in rate sensitive sectors like housing and capex as evidence that neutral could be lower than previously thought.
This morning in Asia markets are following Wall Street’s lead with Nikkei (+0.96%), Hang Seng (+0.91%), Shanghai Comp (+0.86%) and Kospi (+0.30%) all up with a rally largely driven by technology shares. Elsewhere, futures on S&P 500 (+0.03%) are pointing towards a flat start.
Moving on. Yesterday’s slew of data in the US was unlikely to move the dial for policy makers much at the Fed. The S&P CoreLogic National Home Price Index rose 0.33% mom and 5.15% yoy on a seasonally adjusted basis, roughly in line with expectations. The FHFA purchase only house price index rose +0.2%, the third weakest month since January 2015. Higher interest rates and tax changes continue to weigh on the housing sector. On the other hand, consumer confidence and the labour market continue to look strong, with the Conference Board Consumer Confidence index printing at 135.7 as expected, down 2.2pts but near its multi-decade high. The labour market subindex rose to 34.4, a new cycle high.
In other news, the daily Italy update consisted of another comment from the League suggesting that the deficit could be lowered to the 2.2% to 2.3% range, this time from Armando Siri. Reuters also reported that EU government delegates are today expected to back the EC’s disciplinary move against Italy, however a formal disciplinary proceeding may not begin until February. Also out yesterday was an MNI article suggesting that the ECB might be willing to consider OMT as an option for Italy should spreads come under further pressure. The story did appear to be rightly ignored by the market however, especially considering that OMT is conditional on an ESM programme. We are not close to being there yet, even if our head of research David Folkerts-Landau believes that the ESM and structural reforms will need to eventually be negotiated together in a grand bargain to deal with the Italian problem (see the op-ed here from David).
After a good run, BTPs were slightly weaker yesterday with two-year yields closing +3.3bps higher and 10-year yields +2.0bps. As we go to print Italian daily Corriere Della Sera reported PM Conte as saying that dealing with the EU over the budget wont be easy while adding that Italy will push ahead with reforms as social stability is more important for Italy. Elsewhere, the EC VP Dombrovskis said in an interview with La Stampa that Italy needs a “significant correction” of its budget. Indeed as we’re pressing the send button HB is reporting that the EU will open deficit procedures before Christmas. So the pressure is still high even if the news flow has improved of late.
Over to Brexit, where Prime Minister May continues to try to sell her Brexit Withdrawal Agreement to the public and to lawmakers. The leader of the DUP, Arlene Foster, said yesterday that “as far as I can see, this [deal] is not going through parliament” and the pound dropped -0.73% versus the dollar, as passage looks less and less likely and a hangover from the Trump comments the previous night on it being a better deal for the EU and that it precludes a UK/US free trade deal percolated. Nevertheless, a reminder that we turned bullish on the pound on Monday due to two key factors: first, the Government will allow amendments during the legislation process, and second, Labour has signaled their willingness to work through the amendment channel rather than try to topple the government. Together, these ingredients should enable the ‘soft Brexit’ majority in Parliament to coalesce around a non-disruptive exit plan. Voting on the motion to accept or reject the Brexit deal will start in the House of Commons at 7 p.m. on December 11 but the “Meaningful Vote” debate will start on December 4. There will be five days of 8hrs debate, each led by a different cabinet minister. So we may get an idea of potential amendments from next week.
As far as the day ahead is concerned, as noted earlier the focus for the market is likely to be squarely with Fed Chair Powell’s speech. Away from that we also have the second revision of Q3 GDP in the US where no change from the +3.5% qoq saar estimate is expected. The October advance goods trade balance reading should also be closely watched with the consensus expecting a widening in the deficit to $77bn from $76bn last month. Also due out in the US will be October new home sales and the Richmond Fed manufacturing index print. This morning in Europe it’s quiet with December consumer confidence in Germany and the October M3 money supply reading for the Euro Area the only data due. It is another busy day for ECB speakers however with Coeure, Guindos and Praet all due to speak. The BoE’s Carney will also speak at the Financial Stability Report press conference this afternoon when we will also get the latest annual bank stress test results.

morning wrap up

Saudi Arabia annunced it will slash its oil exports unilaterally next month - by 500K barrels per day - as OPEC producers met over the weekend to halt a market slump that had seen crude decline by 20% since early October. A broader OPEC output cut was also debated in Abu Dhabi, but with Russia warning of "hasty decisions," a verdict was postponed until the next full OPEC meeting, scheduled to take place in Vienna on Dec. 6.
Economy
Sterling slipped 0.8% overnight to $1.1269 as former British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson came out swinging against Theresa May, stating the U.K. is on the verge of "total surrender" in Brexit negotiations. May also faces the threat of further resignations from several pro-EU ministers following the departure of transport minister Jo Johnson on Friday, while the Labour party said leaving the bloc without a deal would be blocked by parliament.
The euro is not "a clear alternative" to the dollar thanks to the U.S. currency's international "strengths," French President Emmanuel Macron told CNN. "This is an issue of sovereignty for me. We made a great job during the past years but it’s not yet sufficient... That’s why I want us to work very closely with our financial institutions, at the European levels and with all the partners."
Alternatives to Libor underpinned less than 5% of interest rate derivatives traded last quarter, FT reports, with regulators like the U.S. Fed and Bank of England trying to wean financial markets off the scandal-tainted benchmark. Banks will no longer be required to submit the daily rates that together form Libor from 2021 as many believe the benchmark no longer accurately reflects the cost of unsecured borrowing between banks.
World leaders are heading to Singapore for the semiannual ASEAN summit, where Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is expected to rally support for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, a free trade deal that will encompass more than a third of the world's GDP. The pact currently includes 16 countries, including China, India, Japan and South Korea, but not the United States.
Meanwhile, Vietnam's National Assembly has unanimously ratified the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, the updated version of the TPP following the U.S.'s withdrawal in 2017. Brunei, Chile, Malaysia and Peru are now the four remaining member nations that are yet to ratify the 11-nation trade pact, which will slash tariffs across much of the Asia-Pacific.
U.S. stock index futures are starting the week not far from the flatline. No major economic data is expected and the session could see low trading volumes as U.S. bond markets are closed for Veterans Day. In earnings news, several retailers including Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Macy’s (NYSE:M) will be on the radar this week, with investors keen on hearing what they say about consumer sentiment.
Wildfires raging north of San Francisco and near Los Angeles have killed at least 31 people, as more than 250K people flee the areas against a backdrop of damages that could reach $19B. In the past, PG&E (NYSE:PCG) has been faulted for several deadly blazes across the state, and many are now pointing fingers at the utility, causing the stock to close down 16% on Friday. President Trump has also blamed the wildfires on poor forest management, threatening to cut off funding to California.
Stocks
Alibaba clocked in sales of $30.8B during its annual Singles' Day extravaganza, representing a rise of nearly 27% year-on-year, but smaller than the 39% Y/Y growth recorded in 2017. In the past few years, Singles' Day (NYSE:BABA) has exceeded the transaction volume of both Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. The event has also far surpassed Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime Day, which is the most similar to Singles' Day because it is also a 24-hour, online shopping event.
Paving the way for Japan's largest ever share listing, SoftBank (OTCPK:SFTBY) has received clearance from the Tokyo Stock Exchange for a ¥2.4T ($21B) IPO of its mobile unit. The new share issuance, pegged for Dec. 19, will add more fuel to its nearly $100B Vision Fund and mark the transformation of the mobile phone network provider into one of the world’s biggest technology investors under CEO Masayoshi Son.
Less than a week after Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) unveiled its "Infinity Flex Display," a new report from Yonhap News claims to have details about the upcoming bendy device. The smartphone will be dubbed the "Galaxy F" and debut in March, shortly after the 5G-enabled S10. While the company hasn't settled on a price, it likely won't come cheap, with a cost of as much as 2M won, or $1,770.
Once Democrats take control of the House, they are planning to investigate whether President Trump abused "instruments of state power" to penalize companies, incoming House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff told Axios on HBO. That includes probes on whether the Trump administration attempted to block AT&T (NYSE:T) from acquiring Time Warner "to punish CNN," and whether officials sought to hit Washington Post relative Amazon (AMZN) by prodding the USPS to hike shipping prices.
M&A roundup: SAP has joined a growing list of software giants making big acquisitions in 2018, scooping up business software company Qualtrics for $8B just before its IPO. Reports also suggest private equity firm Vista Equity Partners reached a deal to buy software company Apptio (NASDAQ:APTI) for $1.94B, while Veritas Capital and Elliott Management agreed to acquire Athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN) for $5.5B in cash.
Diageo is selling a portfolio of 19 brands, including Seagram's whisky varieties and Romana Sambuca, to privately owned Sazerac for $550M. While proceeds will be returned to shareholders through a share buyback, the sale will be dilutive to pre-exceptional earnings per share in the first full financial year after closing. The deal will allow Diageo (NYSE:DEO) to have "greater focus" on its premium brands in the U.S.
The last ten years it was clove cigarettes, but this decade may see a menthol ban. Following a 4% fall on Friday, British American Tobacco (NYSEMKT:BTI) shares are down over 7% premarket on news that the FDA may take the minty product off the market. "BAT is the most exposed name to the potential risk," wrote Morgan Stanley's Richard Taylor, who estimates that U.S. menthol cigarettes (and its Newport brand) account for 25% of total earnings.
Aiming to close its deal for Shire (NASDAQ:SHPG) on Jan. 8, Takeda Pharmaceutical (OTCPK:TKPYY) will hold an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders to vote on the $62B transaction on Dec. 5. The deal would be the largest-ever overseas acquisition by a Japanese company, but it still needs two-thirds support from shareholders, some of whom are worried about the enlarged company's resulting debt burden, as well as regulatory approval from the EU. SHPG +1% premarket.
UPS freight workers have voted to approve a new labor contract, averting a strike that could have affected shippers transporting their goods around the country. UPS said it will immediately resume pickups for the division's customers, after its 11,600 workers stopped picking up orders earlier this month so freight cargo wouldn't be stranded in the network during a strike.
Ford is open to working with foreign rivals to expand self-driving services internationally, but declined to comment on reports that the company was in collaboration talks with Volkswagen (OTCPK:VWAGY). Development and business costs "billions and billions of dollars" per region, Ford's (NYSE:F) Autonomous Vehicles' CEO Sherif Marakby told the FT, so it's cost effective on "risk and the reward" to work together to deploy the technology across territories.
The market is predominantly filled with massive contractors - Boeing (NYSE:BA), Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) and SpaceX (SPACE) - but there's a new side to the commercial space sector.

Why YOU should invest in Bitcoin!

Why YOU should invest in Bitcoin!


Today we will cover the WHY of Bitcoin. Due to the expanding reach of the Crypto Currency many people now know what Bitcoin is but most of them don't know why it's important and what the benefits of investing in Bitcoin could be?
The most basic use of the technology is to transfer money between two people without the the involvement of any bank or middlemen. Because there are no banks or any middleman involved therefore the people using this service will have to go through less procedures and conditions.
However that is not the only use of the technology, Bitcoin is much more than just a digital currency. It was basically designed as an alternative to the modern day financial system. It's a complete system with security protocols, custody rights, transaction settlement, lending, borrowing etc.
The next thing we need to know is that the production or mining of Bitcoin is strictly limited to a maximum of 21 Million Bitcoins that can be mined.The limited amount of Bitcoin available is a contrast to the government money/FIAT which can be printed to no limit. Key thing here to be noticed is that when government prints more money this can cause inflation or even hyperinflation which doesn't happen with Bitcoin because of its limited supply.
Example of inflation :
If a country produces goods worth $10 Million example 1 Million Tables worth $10 each then the money supply is $10 Million. If the government doubles the money in circulation and starts printing more money to let's say support a war then there will be more demand with the same quantity/number of goods available. This will increase the demand thus increasing the prices of the goods
If there is more inflation in a country this effects bonds which is a way governments borrow money from the people. Investors buy bonds because of good safe yields offered by the governments assuming that the key inflation will remain the same however if prices are doubled because of inflation then investors will seek opportunities else where with greater returns to counter the rising inflation. High inflation also effects savings of people and national debt. There have been many instances in history of hyperinflation resulting in collapse of solid economies. The hyperinflation in Germany in the 1920s is one of the many examples of this.
Bitcoin is extremely divisible meaning that one can send $0.10 worth of Bitcoin or $10,000 worth of bitcoin just as easily. The system runs through a decentralized network of servers all around the globe 24 hours a day and has a credible security protocol.
Another reason we might be turning to Bitcoin technology is the debt that is pilling up all around the world.When a debt becomes too big of an issue the currency then crashes.Historically debilitating inflation is the result of such crisis.
We can see uses of Bitcoin in many other spheres nowadays and there is more acceptance of the technology as compared to some years ago when everyone thought of it as a bubble with high risks.
Today on November 11, Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX) & Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) have successfully tested the block chain technology for tokenized asset settlement.
It's being taught in many of the National Universities around the globe such as Malaysia etc.
Many refugee camps are also using the technology to keep check on the ration for the camps. We can see many other uses in Asset Management, Insurance Claim Processing, Cross Border Payments, Smart Contracts, Smart Appliances, Personal Identification etc.
The increased acceptance of the technology is the key factor increasing the demand of Bitcoin in trading for investors. JOIN the global trend and INVEST in Bitcoin today before it's too late.

Impact of Blockchain in Supply Chain

Rising into prominence with the cryptocurrency hype, the scope of Blockchain technology is now being explored outside financial services. While the market value of Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple has skyrocketed to over 10,000 percent, the global blockchain market is estimated to reach $7.59 billion by 2024. According to the report, demand for blockchain is set to rise across various sectors such as media, telecom, healthcare, transportation and consumer or industrial products.
With several banks already experimenting with blockchain so as to deploy it in their services, blockchain has a convincing use case for the finance sector. However, arguably the next biggest transformation it could bring, would be in the supply chain management. According to a report by IndustryARC, blockchain’s supply chain market is projected to reach $424.24 million by 2023 with compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.37%. The many benefits of blockchain such as automation of contracts, reduced costs, better visibility into the process etc., have made it a promising solution to the existing problems faced in the management of supply chain. The traditional SCM is wrought with issues that impede it from efficiently delivering the needs of the global market. To see how blockchain could make an impact on the supply chain, an overview of these existing problems in SCM becomes necessary.
Lack of Transparency — With globalization, managing supply chain has become an incredibly complex task. Neither customers nor enterprises have a clear visibility of all the elements in the management. As products have to travel multiple geographies, it is extremely difficult to keep track of every channel that the product passes through. Due to this lack of visibility, companies have no way of identifying the inefficient intermediaries in the process and as a result expenses rise for the enterprises, which in turn hampers customer satisfaction and inflates prices for the consumers.
Long Lead times — Lead time refers to the time between the initiation and the execution of the production process. When suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and customers are spread across multiple geographies, longer lead times are experienced. This is particularly the case with global supply chain where supply chain parties are located in different countries. As the demand for their products rises, enterprises cannot afford to have longer lead time. Thus, it becomes a critical appealing factor to the customers.
Maintaining trust across supplier networks — A crucial factor to handling supply chain is maintaining good relationships with suppliers involved in the network. While it is a smaller issue for domestic players, it is a key element for handling global supply chain networks. When globalized, enterprises need to maintain good trust with a wider number of suppliers, while at the same time having no control over them. As a result, enterprises cannot manage their businesses efficiently as they are reliant on the supplier to deliver items. Therefore it becomes crucial for companies to weed out unreliable suppliers.
Uncertainty — Having to send products over various geographies, the supply chain, severely suffers from uncertainties in logistics and production due to political and economical instability of a region. In addition, an enterprise managing suppliers in multiple countries has to take into account the region-specific factors such as transport connectivity, weather etc., in order to be able to effectively manage the supply chain without hindering their business operations.
Security — Without visibility into the supply chain and proper accountability of who handles what, passing products over different channels implies that they are subject to several risks, such as, theft and piracy. For instance, items while in transit can be taken through illegitimate channels in which unauthorized replacement of items can take place or they can be tampered with. Besides, those enterprises that rely on sub standard IT management systems may be subjected to hacking, thereby, posing a threat to the entire supply chain network.

How can Blockchain Technology help?

While some forms of the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) has been around for over a decade, such as the Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Torrent technology, what makes Blockchain worthy of the attention, is its unique combination of various concepts. Blockchain is a distributed ledger that works upon the principles of game theory, P2P technology and cryptography.
A distributed ledger is nothing but a registry of digital data or a database distributed or spread across nodes in a network to be shared and viewed. It is essentially a decentralized network that works without a single central authority. Following are the key features that make blockchain appealing as a distributed ledger platform for supply chain:
Decentralized — Having a ledger replicated over all the user nodes in the network implies that the transactions are always verified by users to be legitimate. For supply chains, decentralization is the ideal solution to tackle the issue of transparency. For instance, enterprises can record location, price, date and other relevant information of items in the supply chain and this information, shared via public ledger, can provide all the stakeholders with the information and status of the transit and origin of items.
Immutability — One of the striking features of blockchain is that once the information is recorded on a block in the chain, it cannot be tampered without altering the subsequent blocks and without the consensus of the majority of users in the network. The level of security that blockchain allows, owing to its immutable nature, ensures that the recorded information is not altered. In the case of supply chain, trustworthy and shared records ensure stakeholders to maintain trust among partners.
Smart Contracts — Opening up blockchain’s application across other verticals, the Smart Contract is a feature that allows two parties to enter into a contract and have the terms in the contract execute automatically once an event is triggered. It is essentially a piece of code that is encoded into a block and distributed across the network. This is highly relevant in supply chains, where financial transactions can be easily managed between multiple parties instantly at the time of product delivery, thereby, enabling transactions efficiently in a faster and cheaper way.
Recognizing the potential of blockchain, enterprises are becoming more positive towards its adaption into the supply chain management. For instance, IBM has paired up with Maersk, a leader in logistics and has used blockchain in its initial pilot to digitize, automate and store paperwork. Hence, it is evident that blockchain has certain advantages and understanding the key benefits is vital to know its potential.
Potential benefits of using blockchain in supply chain:
Undoubtedly the key reason to implement blockchain in supply chain is to increase transparency, improve security and reduce costs, and in particular, following are some of the benefits it provides:
It is evident that adopting blockchain provides numerous advantages for the supply chain industry. It also gives a competitive edge that is much need for any enterprise to stay relevant in the market. In addition to the benefits highlighted above, blockchain enables enterprises to reduce communication errors and improve collaboration between parties, as all those involved have access to the same information.
To conclude, blockchain technology has an immense potential in the supply chain management practices. For any industry, supply chain forms a major part of the business and coupled with globalization, an effective business strategy always prioritizes streamlining the supply chain. Blockchain, therefore, comes as a solution that can completely tackle the issues of transparency and security that currently exist in the supply chain. For enterprises looking to gain a competitive edge, early adoption of innovative solutions, such as the blockchain, becomes a key to the business growth.

Singapore-based eSports Platform Bountie is Launching their ICO in April 2018 to Enable Gamers to Monetize their Hobby with Bountie Coins

Bountie, a Singaporean gaming platform that connects gamers in Asia, will be launching their Initial Coin Offering (ICO) pre-sale on 29th April 2018. Helmed by a team of passionate gamers, Bountie seeks to disrupt the current top-heavy reward scheme in the gaming industry and fill the monetization gap in the market. The platform does this by seeding incentivized competitive matches and tournaments and paying out gamers in their own cryptocurrency, Bountie Coins. Bountie has already garnered phenomenal support from the gaming community, with more than 50,000 sign-ups on the platform to date.
https://preview.redd.it/jktgjalyr2w01.jpg?width=1600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1015d514dab3533ae148cae59833f0e4d0a99c08
The platform is already in partnership with the biggest names in gaming, such as DXRacer, MSI Global and the Singapore Cybersports & Online Gaming Association (SCOGA). In support of the local eSports scene, Bountie is also sponsoring Team Impunity and all-girl team Girlaxy, both Singapore-based e-sports teams. Currently, the Bountie team is focused on the Asia market, targeting gaming communities in Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia.
How It Works: Incorporating Cryptocurrency and Gaming for Players Around the World
Players can make a living while playing their favorite games by participating in weekly tournaments and completing daily achievements to win Bountie Coins. The Coins are backed by the Ethereum’s ERC20 Token Standard, as it enables the implementation of smart contracts, verification of transactions and elimination of fraud transactions. These Coins can also be cashed out, saved in e-wallets or used to purchase gaming peripherals. Additionally, there is a free-to-play element on the platform where gamers can participate in tournaments without upfront costs or buy-ins to win Bountie Coins.
Tapping on the Potential of Disruption in eSports with Bountie’s eSports Ecosystem
Revenue from eSports are expected to grow to US$1.49 billion by 2020 and global revenue from the gaming industry rose from $194 million to $463 million between 2014 and 2016, according to game-market research firm Newzoo. “In this burgeoning eSports landscape, the Bountie platform creates a contemporary ecosystem between players, gaming partners and game publishers,” said Lex Na, co-founder and CEO of Bountie. “With a dearth in established payout architectures in the current gaming scene, Bountie is capitalizing on the rise of cryptocurrency to legitimize gaming income for even casual gamers.”
About Bountie:
Established in 2017, Bountie is a platform for gamers in Asia to make a living while playing their favorite games. Players are rewarded through participating in online tournaments and can use these rewards to purchase gaming products.
