Binance Crypto and Blockchain Event in Singapore a Resounding Success

The final presentations of the Binance Blockchain Week in Singapore have concluded today marking the end of the four day event which has attracted thousands of attendees.
Two Day Conference Follows Two Day Hackathon
The event has been a resounding success with many of the biggest names in the industry taking the stage to promote the crypto ecosystem and a blockchain future. The world’s largest exchange by trade volume identified the need for a unifying conference in a market with a ‘large degree of turmoil’ at the moment. The goals of re-energizing and uniting efforts as uncertainty plagues the industry have been at the forefront of proceedings in Singapore.
The first two days held a hackathon based on the Binance ‘buidl’ ethos of working together to improve overall crypto security and foster a safer trading environment for the public. Using the Secure Asset Funds for Users (SAFU) acronym, teams from around the globe entered into friendly competition to enhance innovation in the industry.
Some of the innovative concepts from teams included deep graph analytics, avalanche consensus on a custom ledger, an e-commerce platform for a database of user reputation, and a crypto scoring platform. The winning team, Merkle Blox, proposed a smart contract based insurance to victims of hackers, ponzi schemes, or phishing scams. A prize of $50,000 in BNB was awarded.

The last two days have held the Binance Conference during which over 50 of the biggest names in the industry took to the stage to present their visions for the future of crypto. Yesterday held presentations from several CEOs and industry leaders on a range of topics including decentralized exchanges, dApp adoption and scaling, security token offerings, proof of work, and regulatory frameworks.
Today’s presentations included Da Hongfei, NEO founder, talking about the smart economy, followed by a discussion on crypto news and quality information. Justin Sun took the stage for his keynote on a new world of dApps on the blockchain with a good deal of promo for the new BitTorrent and Tron ecosystem and upcoming airdrops for TRX holders.

Others taking the stage over the two day conference included CEO of eToro Yoni Assia, Anthony Pompliano, and of course CZ himself. Representatives from the Ethereum Foundation, Ripple, R3, Qtum, OmiseGO, Ontology, ConsenSys, KyberNetwork, Etherscan, Goldman Sachs, and Circle all added to the mix.
The message from the Singapore event has been very clear; crypto is here to stay and building a brighter future for the ecosystem is far more productive than simply focusing on markets and prices.

Will Crypto Exchanges be Able to Survive The Brutal Crypto Winter?

Only the fittest will survive, or so the saying goes. This mantra does not only apply to the animal kingdom, it works in the business world also and surviving is what a lot of crypto exchanges and companies are struggling to do as the bear market enters its second year.
Global Expansion Success For Huobi
The larger crypto exchanges have a better chance of weathering the storm. Downsizing may be inevitable but their large client base should keep them afloat until the crypto winter abates and markets turn around again. Huobi is one of the big players but it has gone from awarding its senior executives multi-million dollar bonuses in Bitcoin to axing staff a year later.
According to the SCMP Beijing based Huobi Group is still turning a profit despite trade volume shrinking to a tenth of what it was a year ago. CEO of Huobi Global, Livio Weng Xiaoqi, said that transaction fees make up the bulk of profits adding; “We do not know how long the bear market will last, so it is still possible that we will struggle to survive. We have to plan in advance and spend money carefully.”
Huobi’s daily trade volume was well over two billion dollars a year ago, today it has shrunk to just $318 million according to Coinmarketcap. Reported volumes on exchanges vary hugely though so all figures must be eyed warily. What is indisputable though is that volumes and profits are way down along with crypto markets themselves.
Venture funding and news aggregation are loss leaders for Huobi and this is where it is making cuts while still expanding its core business. Weng added that the recent closure of its Shenzhen research subsidiary and downsizing of its Huobi Info news app has resulted in the loss of around 100 positions. Huobi still employs over 1,300 people globally however and was the top crypto exchange at one point.
Huobi’s success is its global reach, with over 70% of its customers being Chinese who live outside of China, or use VPN’s, it has access to a huge and growing market. “Our greatest advantage over competitors is that we have licenses in all major countries – we are the only one among top global exchanges,” Weng added.
Conversely Binance has pulled out of Japan and will not deal with the US due to increasing regulatory pressure a less than positive stance from the government. Huobi has operations in both of these countries and Europe where crypto to fiat trading licenses have been obtained. Its key to survival at the moment is the predominantly Asian client base which is still very hungry for crypto in spite of the ever present bears.

Coinbase UK Legal Counsel Predicts 2019 is a Big Deal for Bitcoin Regulations Worldwide

Marcus Hughes, Coinbase’s lead executive believes the year 2019 will bring ‘regulations on Bitcoin’ across the world, particularly in Europe.
Huges Predicting Positive Outcomes from Regulations
Discussing at the Forbes Interview, Chief Counsel of Coinbase, the leading Bitcoin Exchange and Wallet service, Marcus Hughes said that the regulatory frameworks will shape the future of Bitcoin. Noting Bitcoin regulations across the world, he specifically noticed Europe to see a big move in terms of crypto regulations. Hughes said in an interview
“Within the next year or two, we’ll see big developments. Regulation will take shape this year, particularly in Europe.”
Crypto regulations ring a fearing bell for crypto enthusiasts across the various countries. While the ban is not a favorable solution, many enthusiasts, analysts, and companies expect authorities to form favorable regulations that would likely encourage adoption and innovation.While Mr.Hughes thinks 2019 as the year of better regulations for Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, the other fame personality of the crypto market, ‘jalak jobanputra, a founder of NYC based Venture Capital Fund, Future Perfect’ voiced that 2018 was the year of regulations. She further urged that the year 2019 will be a better year for cryptocurrencies.

2018 was the year of regulations for cryptocurrencies, 2019 Will Be a Better Year for Cryptocurrencies – @jalak #CryptoNews #Crypto #Bitcoin #BitcoinNewshttps://t.co/nUVuKsJRTd
— CoinGape (@CoinGapeMedia) January 3, 2019

Crypto In European Countries (E.U)
Mr.Hughes during an interview strongly notes ‘Europe’ to see a big move in terms of regulations. Nevertheless, it is worth to note that the European Banking Authority (EBA) insists for ‘efficient crypto regulations to safeguard investors across the bloc while also approaching fair rules for cryptocurrency operations across European Unions.
“We could end up with E.U. member states creating their own crypto laws, but it’s certainly possible we’ll get a unified approach in Europe. It would make the life for companies like Coinbase a lot easier.’, said Hughes.
Furthermore, the meteoric rise of Bitcoin price in late 2017 has raised the eyebrows of crypto enthusiasts as well as scammers. Henceforth the eyebrows of regulators too. Although the crypto market experienced an unexpected decline during last year, some of the leading banks are still seeing huge potentials in crypto space. Hughes cited the uncertain regulations are holding these banks from adopting the wider perspective of crypto, yet they’re keen to indulge in a space’.

“As the industry matures and is better regulated it will need the talent and experience to manage it, Hughes thinks.”Regulation will help a lot, in particular around custody offerings. These things take time. Clients of investment banks will expect regulation to be in place.

While Binance Boss, CZ remarks that he doesn’t look at the price until someone informs the same to him, chief counsel of Coinbase admitted that he does have check regularly.
He further states that ‘Coinbase exchange considers a long view on cryptocurrency prices’.
“We need to move beyond the speculation phase of bitcoin and cryptocurrency to the utility phase. The utility phase will mean bitcoin and crypto becomes more widely accepted and understood.”

Vitalik v/s CZ Isn’t Over, Binance CEO mocks Vitalik After Ranking First Among 100 Most Influential Crypto People

With the most engaging profile, Zhao changpeng, CEO of Binance is again ranked 1st among the 100 most influential people in crypto 2019 ranked by Cryptoweekly. The list counts 100 plus individuals that are involved in the crypto community over the past year.
It began with Vitalik’s “burn in hell” comment for centralized exchanges
Among the initial 10 names, along with CZ, the list presented Coinbase’s Brian, Ethereum’s Vitalik, Gemini’s Tyler Winklevoss, Ripple’s Brad Garlinghouse, Roger Ver, Barry Silbert, Jihan Wu, Michael Novogratz, and Adam Back. However, the other renowned faces of the industry including, Tron’s Justin Sun, John McAfee, Charlie Lee, Cameron Winklevoss Bobby Lee, Anthony Pompliano, Vinny Lingham and many other comes down the scroll.
While the announcement may excite all those personalities appeared in the list, CZ’s sense of gratitude to be the first in the list again was quite interesting. The latest tweet of CZ quietly mocks at Vitalik Buterin’s statements so far.

Wow, honored to be first again. I honestly don't think I am more influential than many of the guys on the list, like Vitalik, etc. I just say my mind and talk random sh!t most of the time. Well, Vitalik also says sh!t sometimes, like wishing people to burn in hell. lol… https://t.co/JbqQMf0OB9
— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) January 16, 2019

Again this tweet of CZ pointed out the Vitalik Buterin’s comment in an interview with Jon Evans at Techcrunch session in July 2018 where he criticized centralized exchanges.
“I definitely hope centralized exchanges go burn in hell as much as possible.”
As Coingape reported earlier, this conversation between CZ and Vitalik Buterin has been heated up when in response to it, CZ tweeted:

Got asked a few times, re: “Vitalik’s burn in hell”.
Let’s not wish others to "burn in hell". Let’s have a bigger heart, and appreciate the fact that we are part of an eco-system… pic.twitter.com/4QYGKus0Gk
— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) July 10, 2018

Although CZ is quite vocal about what he feels, and consequently, his tweet of gratefulness towards cryptoweekly, but there seems nothing from Vitalik’s side yet. Many of CZ’s fans congratulated him whilst pointing out what he actually wants to indicate – one of such user points;

Hahaha.. You rock CZ. Your sense of humor is impressive to all of us. It's a great asset than anything else😂😂😂
— Brahma (@Bhramma5) January 16, 2019

Further early today, CZ silently trolled the hacked incident of Cryptopia (but by not naming it anywhere in his tweet) as a way to promote ‘Binance DEX’. Although at first he draws fire on himself since the tweet didn’t indicate ‘DEX promo’ but after the backlash, he had to backtrack. CZ then quickly took Twitter and cleared his viewpoint, explaining that;

Some people seems to misread this tweet. It lists 3 options. It does not say which option is better than another, as that depends on each persons security skill, preference, fund allocation, etc.
Most importantly, it is an ad for the #BinanceDEX. My bad for not making it clear.
— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) January 15, 2019

It clearly indicates Vitalik’s sentiments about centralized exchanges and that being a centralized exchange himself he didn’t like it much. Do you think Vitalik was right in calling centralized exchanges to “burn in hell”?

Binance Continues Expanding With New Token Sales on ‘Launchpad’

Crypto exchange Binance has shown no sign of slowing down during the year-long bear market as it continues to innovate and nurture projects to foster the embryonic industry.
Its latest offering is called Launchpad which has been described as a token launch platform which helps blockchain projects raise funds and increase their reach in the crypto ecosystem. The initiative will be surmising one new token launch each month during 2019 according to the official blog post.
Projects that meet the criteria will be introduced to Binance’s huge user base which it estimates is over ten million;
“We do this by offering a project’s tokens to up to more than 10 million Binance users. With this platform, we grant our users the chance to be part of potentially game-changing projects.”
However, there is a long list of countries, 29 in total including the US, that are not permitted to participate in token sales on the Launchpad platform.  The ethos is to focus on projects that have two primary aims; further development and increasing adoption. Binance already supports 21 projects via its investment division, Binance Labs.
Two New Projects to be Launched
One of the first tokens to be launched from the ‘pad’ will be BitTorrent, the Tron affiliated P2P blockchain file sharing network. It’s new BTT token will be used to incentivize content creators and activities that lead to better file sharing such as extending seeding periods. According to the post BitTorrent has 100 million monthly active users spread across 138 countries. Using the Tron network it aims to serve them and expand making it potentially the largest in the world. TRX is currently enjoying the news with a 9% gain on the day at the time of writing.
The second token project to make it to the Binance Launchpad is Fetch.AI, a decentralized artificial intelligence driven blockchain network. Autonomous Economic Agents (AEAs) will be employed to transact without human intervention and represent themselves, devices, services, or individuals according to the post. It is currently very experimental but use cases for hospitality, transport, energy and supply chain sectors are expected.
For a project to be accepted by Binance it needs to adhere to a strict set of standards which include;
 “A relatively mature-stage project development, readiness for large-scale adoption, a strong and committed team, and the potential to benefit the growth and development of the wider crypto ecosystem.”
The initiative appears to be cherry picking ICOs and giving them an initial boost on the exchange. This may help to weed out those scammy projects that gave the ICO industry such a bad name over the past year. Binance is positioning itself to become the arbiter of all things crypto and for those few successful projects that get accepted it will be the Launchpad that they need.

Coinbase Considering Subscription Model, Hints New User Survey

Cryptocurrency exchanges like Coinbase and others drive their revenue through the fees users are charged for the trades or purchases they make.
However, a new user survey being circulated by Coinbase appears to hint at the cryptocurrency powerhouse exploring new fee models, including a subscription model.
Coinbase Survey Polls Users on Potential Subscription Model
Companies frequently send around surveys to their most active and loyal customers, seeking valuable input and feedback that may or may not end up shaping future products or services. This past week, San Francisco-based cryptocurrency giant Coinbase sent around a survey to select customers seeking feedback on a number of questions.
According to the questions asked in the survey, Coinbase appeared particularly interested in changing up its fee structure in order to remain competitive in the ever-changing crypto space. Among the questions, the crypto firm compared their maker and taker fee models against other exchanges, such as Binance, Huobi Pro, Gemini, and more.
Related Reading | Coinbase Exploring Support for 31 More Crypto Assets
However, there was another section of questions where Coinbase focused on gaining user input on potentially switching to a subscription fee model for users. The survey asked how interested a user would be in paying a “modest subscription fee” in exchange for lower “maker” or “taker” fees and other perks.

With a subscription model, a user would likely pay a monthly or annual fee to gain access to lower overall fees and “perks.” The survey didn’t hint at what the potential perks might be. It’s also worth pointing out that survey’s like the one in this example are seeking to gain feedback and may not lead to actual products or changes to services. Should the feedback about the subscription services be overwhelmingly negative, the subscription model may never see the light of day.
Coinbase Pivoting To Better Monetize Active Users?
A recent report from the Blockchain Transparency Institute showed that Coinbase had the highest number of daily active users on its cryptocurrency exchange. The Brian Armstrong-led firm boasted over 100,000 more active users than Binance, and nearly four times as many users as the #3 and #4 spots on the list.
However, despite having such a large amount of active users, each user only contributed a dismal amount of transaction volume.
Related Reading |  Brian Armstrong: 2019 Will be a Great Year for Crypto
Coinbase ranked the lowest by transaction volume out of the four exchanges with over 100,000 daily active users. Each user contributes only $189 in transaction volume, compared to $2,137 per user on Binance.
With cryptocurrency exchanges like Coinbase and Binance generating revenue from fees, which are typically a set percentage of the transaction value, it’s not a surprise to see Coinbase exploring ways to better monetize their large volume of active users.
If Coinbase moved forward with a subscription model, it would allow the firm to charge a set fee to use their services, regardless of transaction volume and value. But again, many ideas mentioned in user surveys don’t end up coming to fruition, so only time will tell if the firm’s executives are satisfied with the feedback and decides to roll out a subscription model.

Kraken Enables Bitcoin Cash and XRP Margin Trading

Crypto exchange Kraken has launched margin trading options for two of the top digital currencies by market capitalization, Bitcoin Cash and XRP.
High Risk Margin Trading Expanded at Kraken
Margin trading allows users to leverage their accounts with funds they do not actually possess. This can lead to far greater profits but and also greatly amplify losses. One wrong trade can wipe out an entire account so it is not for the feint hearted.
San Francisco based Kraken has just added two more crypto assets to the six it already offers. Currently users can leverage trades on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Tether, Monero and Augur. As announced on the company blog today, Bitcoin Cash and XRP have just been added to this list.
The available leverage, or borrow limits, will depend on the verification level of the account. Top tier four accounts can get up to 500 BCH or 2.5 million XRP. Leverage starts a 2x for BTC trades and goes up to 5x for XRP fiat trades. Kraken has posted a warning about the dangers of high risk trading and recommends having a healthy account balance to back margins;
“Please note that BCH and XRP are not collateral currencies. This means you cannot open margin positions against the value of your BCH or XRP balances. For this reason, you should always maintain adequate balances of other collateral currencies to maintain your margin positions.”
XPR Base Pairings Grow
More exchanges are now looking towards XRP as a base pair to add to Bitcoin, Ethereum and Tether. Earlier this week Binance announced that it was expanding its listings to include the XRP/TRX (Tron) and XRP/XZC (Zcoin) base pairs.
The world’s top exchange also added that it will rename the Ethereum markets to ‘ALTS’ to reflect the different base pairs now offered.
Market Reaction
Crypto markets are rebounding again today and both XRP and BCH are getting a lift. At the time of writing XRP was up 8% on the day to $0.375, it has made almost 7% over the past week but is down over 3% from the same time last month.
Bitcoin Cash meanwhile is up and down like a yoyo. Today BCH has posted gains of around 16% taking it over $170 again but since last weekend it has dropped 9%. The volatility has crept back into crypto markets so it is unlikely the Kraken addition of these to assets has made a difference to their prices.

Binance CEO CZ says, “We will continue to build and increase adoption, and lead the industry forward”

Binance has released its yearly round-up report in the form of a letter from its Chief Executive Officer [CEO] Changpeng “CZ” Zhao. The CEO informed about the company’s progress and the target they set to achieve. One of which is launching Binance Mainnet in 2019, which will make the platform pull out of the Ethereum network.
Binance will be following Tron [TRX], EOS and other coins that have backed out of the ERC20 Network and other coins like Zilliqa that are hoping to pull out off the network completely by January next year.
Talking further about Binance Chain, the CEO informed that the platform is assuming to achieve this by January 2019 with a native on-chain DEX. A testnet version of Binance Chain is made available to the platform’s partners and will be available to the public within the first month of the coming year. The mainnet will be launched a few months after Binance chain. CZ talked about the ways in which Binance chain will make a difference. He added:
“The Binance Chain is unique in many ways. With 1-second block times and 1 confirmation finality, we hope it will serve a few niche functions other blockchains haven’t covered.”
CZ educated the readers about wanting to increase BNB adoptions in the coming year and about investing in more projects. The company will also be seen participating in more transparent charities in the coming year.
The CEO also stated the reasons, according to him, which led to the prices of the cryptocurrency falling so low in the year 2018. He pointed towards some ICO projects from 2017 that missed the 2018 delivery promises.
The letter talked about regulatory uncertainty and how it is inhibiting the progress of the digital currency industry. CZ asked the crypto world to unite in order to increase the prices of the cryptocurrencies. The CEO wrote:
“We, as a young industry, were not very united. There were fights between projects, between people, and stupid forks that triggered further drops in price.”
The report talked about the things the community could look forward to in which he mentioned to introduce up to 10 fiat exchanges around the world. The Binance CEO added:
“We will continue to build and increase adoption, and lead the industry forward.”

He says that “We will be adding a couple of trading pairs with XRP as the quote currency shortly”. This might be the Christmas gift for the crypto enthusiast interested on XRP and Binance.

And rename ETH markets to ALTS market. Running out of space on the UI.

Careful what you wish for. 🙂
Although this comment looks negative to the community member, as a gift to this Christmas, CZ finally took twitter wishing everyone with a positive comment. Furthermore, he said that Binance is renaming ETH markets to ALTS market, running out of space on the UI, giving an enthusiastic point to all other altcoins to participate in Binance’s latest charity system.
 
CZ’s announcement has spread to across more than 3.3k audience on twitter within a less span of time. On this announcement, Steven Diep who has recently talked about ‘xRapid’ as reported by coingape, has commented that the ‘news is bigger than XRP being listed on Coinbase’.
