With the invention of bitcoin came a new, secure method of value transfer, via its underlying technology blockchain. Since bitcoin’s inception ten years ago, a plethora of mainstream entities have investigated various ways to channel blockchain’s potential. Automation giant Siemens is evaluating the technology for various enterprise use cases, including improving the carsharing market.Siemens is following the trend of mainstream giants looking to incorporate blockchain. “We are in the space where we want to come up with industrial extensions of blockchain systems, […] blockchain systems for enterprises,” Siemens Corporate Technology head of cybersecurity and blockchain Andreas Kind said to me in an interview. Kind mentioned use cases pertaining to areas such as supply chain, mobility, manufacturing, etc.When entities are interested in making the move toward blockchain, they generally undergo periods of testing and discovery before choosing the most effective and applicable use cases, Kind explained. “Siemens is exactly in this kind of phase,” he added. The company just completed a period of exploration, Kind said, adding, “Now we’re at the point where we’re really zoomed into a set of use cases that are related to Siemens’ business.” Siemens is looking toward permissioned blockchain…Jul 16, 2019
Aave, a protocol for decentralized lending, today announced it has launched on the Ethereum mainnet. Aave is a decentralized non-custodial money market protocol where users can participate as depositors or borrowers. Depositors provide liquidity to the market to earn a passive income, while borrowers are able to borrow in an overcollateralized (perpetually) or undercollateralized (one-block liquidity) method.New FeaturesThe protocol features new features including Flash loans, where users can borrow instantly and easily, no collateral needed. Flash loans enable a customized smart contract to borrow assets from our reserve pools within one transaction on the condition that the liquidity is returned to the pool before the transaction ends. If this does not happen, the transaction is reversed to effectively undo the actions executed until that point, guaranteeing the safety of the funds in the reserve pool.The Aave protocol introduces an innovative tokenization model compared to the current interest-bearing tokens available on the market like cDAI/Chai. Instead of being defined by an exchange rate against the underlying asset, the Aave interest-bearing tokens (aTokens for short) are pegged 1:1 to the value of…Jan 8, 2020
Argentina’s natural gas regulator, Enargas, approved the expansion of a blockchain-based gas distribution tracking platform. The system was already piloted by a local distributor servicing over 2 million residents.According to an announcement on March 18, the system — dubbed Gasnet — was authorized for expansion to the whole country. Before now, the network was used only by Gasnor, a 2 million customer-strong local gas distributor.A spokesperson from RSK, the blockchain platform used by the system, told Cointelegraph that the regulator pushed for this service expansion due to the advantages experienced by Enargas:“It is easier to control for the regulator authority and more effective the way that gas distributors share their key processes with the regulator.”At press time, there is no news of other distributors joining the network. However, IOV Labs — the firm behind RSK — anticipates that others will join soon. The advantages of blockchain in gas managementGasnet aims to manage service providers, carry out transactions when new installation or reconnection certificates are registered, and improve regulatory oversight. To achieve that, the network utilized RSK smart contracts and its RIF…Mar 20, 2020
At the end of September 2019, Bitcoin broke down from a triangle pattern that it had been trading in throughout the summer months, putting an end to a rally that first began in the Spring.The entire cycle from Bitcoin’s bear market bottom all the way to the recent top, appear to follow Wyckoff’s distribution model. And if that’s what is playing out in Bitcoin markets, the markdown phase of the first-ever crypto asset may have only just gotten started, and much lower prices may be ahead. Bitcoin in 2019: The Perfect Example of the Wyckoff Method?Richard Wyckoff was a world-renowned stock trader and author of a number of famous trading books. His success was based on the principle that markets were cyclical and went through four distinct phases at different times.The four different phases according to the Wyckoff method, are accumulation, markup, distribution, and markdown.

With Bitcoin inching closer to breaking below $8k, investors are holding their breath. But, these three key developments might just keep its head above water.1. Fidelity’s New NY LicenseFidelity receiving permission from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) to offer bitcoin trading and storage services yesterday failed to bolster BTC price. But that doesn’t make it any less epic.Rather like Bakkt’s tepid launch, the onboarding may start slowly. But the fact can’t be denied that significant infrastructure is being built out for institutional investors. Fidelity is worth some $2.8 trillion and will now trade and custody BTC. This opens up yet another door for the institutional dollars to come in.2. Difficulty Adjustment Tomorrow Could Bring Fresh GainsAs Bitcoinist reported on Monday, a new Bitcoin bull run could start tomorrow if the increase in difficulty hits its expected gain of 4% on Thursday.Analyzing 9 years of data, drops in BTC price have often occurred ahead of a significant difficulty increase–and they have always been followed by significant price gains, according to analyst PlanB.However, as we pointed out, past performance…Nov 20, 2019
Over the past day, Bitcoin has done extremely well; case in point: per data from CoinMarketCap, the price of the leading cryptocurrency has surged 5% higher to $10,300 over the past 24 hours, reaching as high as $10,500 on the back of an influx of buying pressure.While some are fearful that the steep uptrend BTC has exhibited over recent weeks is a precursor to a deep retracement, a top analyst noted that prices just surmounted an extremely key downtrend, boding well for the long-term bullish argument.

The fact that Bitcoin is now past this key resistance, the…Feb 12, 2020
