South Korea’s Ministry of Economy and Finance is considering imposing a 20% tax on income from cryptocurrency transactions. According to a report published by local English-language news outlet The Korea Times on Jan. 20, the ministry had reportedly ordered its income office to review cryptocurrency taxation. The Korea Times cited an anonymous official who reportedly said that the ministry has not finalized its plan, but noted that the government may impose a 20% tax on crypto income. News of the proposed rate follows reports earlier this month that South Korea is drafting a tax regime for profits made from trading cryptocurrencies. Crypto tax clarity is much needed Some have speculated that the government may categorize gains obtained through cryptocurrency trading as “other income” and not capital gains. The other income category also includes gains made from lectures, lottery purchases and prizes. A clear cheme for crypto cryptocurrency taxation is much needed in South Korea. This became particularly apparent when, at the end of December, major local cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb announced that it was considering administrative litigation over an $68.9 million…Jan 20, 2020
Temtem is a Pokemon-Like MMO that was released in late January 2020 to rave reviews. The game’s developer has been waging a vicious war against cheaters, banning nearly 900 in one fell swoop. While it’s good to see a company taking a stand against cheaters, is it possible Temtem is taking this too far? Temtem has been a smash hit since its release [SteamDB] two weeks ago. It appears that the Pokemon-like MMO has already attracted a fair amount of shady activity. But the developers are sending a message that cheaters will quickly come face to face with the banhammer. The Temtem Twitter account announced today that nearly 900 players had been permanently banned for abusing exploits while playing the game. There will be no appeals process. Source: Twitter While cheating is the scourge of online games like Temtem, is this response just a bit too strong? No ‘Cheating Is Bad’ Essays for Temtem Players Cheating in online games is uncool. It makes the experience worse for everyone (including the cheater!) when someone uses software to exploit at an online…Feb 4, 2020
Synthetix is putting over $40,000 in crypto on the line to entice users to try out the faster beta of its decentralized exchange (DEX). “While DEXs offer significant improvements over CEXs [centralized exchanges] in terms of safety of funds and transparency, there is typically a painful trade-off on transaction speed,” Synthetix CEO Kain Warwick told CoinDesk in an email. It doesn’t cost anything more than a tweet to participate in the demo DEX, but users need to act fast because they only have till Tuesday to place in the top 20 and win a piece of the 50,000 SNX the company has put up in prizes. But the real reason traders might be interested over time is because this project could demo a world where DEXs become feasible at scale. Everyone knows that the main use case for crypto is trading, which has led to a massive and glaring irony for crypto users. As much as they might like the decentralized nature of these assets, in order to trade efficiently they rely on centralized crypto exchanges, which tend to be…May 18, 2020

GeForce Now has suffered from multiple developers and publishers pulling their games off the service. Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney has been outspoken in his support for the platform. We need more companies like Epic Games if game streaming is ever going to exist in a way that benefits consumers. It would be an understatement to say that Epic Games is not the most popular company in the gaming industry. They’re not as reviled as EA – not that surpassing EA is a huge achievement. But for all its reputational scars, Epic Games quietly does a lot of things right. They pay developers beefy royalties. And they’ve remained staunch supporters of GeForce Now even after other companies have begun to abandon Nvidia’s cloud gaming service. As bizarre as it sounds, what cloud gaming needs most is for more publishers to behave exactly like Time Sweeney and company. Source: Twitter GeForce Now Needs Companies Like Epic Games Streaming has long been marketed as the future of gaming. Usually, this narrative is sold by the companies launching their own services, but even…Mar 15, 2020

Washington’s recession-fighting toolbox is nearly empty as US economy braces for possible coronavirus outbreak |
Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte A wrench may not be enough. mipan/Shutterstock.com Investors, policymakers, businesses and the general public are increasingly concerned the coronavirus’ rapid spread will lead to a recession. While this outcome is hard for economists like me to predict, we do know one thing: The U.S. is not prepared to fight a deep recession. Policymakers basically have two methods for reversing a downturn: monetary stimulus, primarily through reduced borrowing costs; and fiscal stimulus, when the government spends more or cuts taxes. Unfortunately, the U.S. currently has dim prospects for success with either option. Monetary policy The most immediate indicator of the growing concern about a recession is in the stock market, which has plunged more than 10% since hitting a record high on Feb. 19. The Federal Reserve hoped to calm markets with its March 3 surprise half-a-percentage-point cut in its target interest rate to a range of 1% to 1.25%. The cut is intended to lower borrowing costs for companies and consumers in order to stimulate investment and spending and to…Mar 7, 2020

More and more organizations turn to blockchain technology during the coronavirus crisis. Birmingham City Business School is the latest to throw its hat into the ring through blockchain certificates. There are seemingly many use cases for blockchain technology during this time of crisis. Blockchain Certificates During the Coronavirus The viability of these efforts still remains in question, however. If the Birmingham City Business School is to be believed, the coronavirus and blockchain can go together quite well. The group is currently trialing blockchain-based certificates to manage COVID-19 risks across supply chains. While it is evident that something needs to change, these certificates may not make a direct impact. The Coronavirus Clearance Certificate, or CCC, is issued by the TTPF in the UK. Through this certificate, organizations, citizens, and products will be deemed “appropriate” during the COVID-19 situation. Compliance and ethical practices during times like these are crucial at all times. More transparency is required on the suppliers’ end, thus these certificates can make a difference eventually. It remains to be seen who will effectively adopt these certificates, however. Issuing them…Apr 23, 2020
