Dominos giveaway is good for crypto adoption
In any case, the value of Bitcoin has roughly gone up to one-hundred and two ($102) million and rising; and this competition sounds like a collaborated marketing strategy.
This isn’t the first time pizza has drawn links with cryptocurrency. The relationship of Bitcoin and pizza go way back to May 2010 when Lazlo Hanyecz traded ten thousand Bitcoins for two large Papa John pizzas. This is considered the first-ever crypto-transaction in the guise of online shopping.
Since May 2010 the journey of cryptocurrency and pizza has only gone uphill. L.N. pizza, an internet-based application, was launched by a crypto start-up named Fold at the beginning of this year.
This widened the horizons of online transactions with the use of cryptocurrency, i.e. ordering Domino’s Pizza via the Bitcoin Lightning Network (L.N.). The marketing strategies of Fold do not cease here for the company aims to lure ever bigger fish into its traps like Dunkin’ Donuts, Target, Whole Foods, and various companies of the kind.

An auction to recapitalize MakerDAO (MKR) after the mid-March market turmoil successfully concluded on March 28, bringing in over $5 million worth of DAI. Crypto venture fund Paradigm Capital revealed in a March 31 tweet that it won approximately 68% of the auctioned tokens. The company had previously pledged to join a “backstop syndicate” and cover the entire system shortfall if necessary. Acting as a so-called “backstop,” the group would act as the buyer of last resort by purchasing the MKR tokens if their price fell to $100. (The auction’s starting price was $200 and the current market price is $288.) Many prominent members of the decentralized finance (DeFi) community joined the syndicate, guaranteeing that Paradigm would not have been alone in its effort to preserve MakerDAO’s functionality. But the backstop was ultimately unnecessary because the auction found lots of bidders quickly. Some community members alleged that the Maker Foundation was purchasing the lots, as most of the bids came from a select few addresses. The foundation responded by saying that it provided “limited technical assistance to some bidders.” It…Apr 1, 2020
If Bitcoin achieves mainstream adoption, it might be able to replace the system of endless money printing. Bitcoin to replace paper-based finance Despite having trillions of dollars of money in circulation, the process still continues and remains an important part of modern finance. The necessity of constantly printing money proves that fiat currencies have become ‘obsolete’ and its time to move on. The process of quantitative easing or printing money to support a nation has deteriorating effects on the global economy. Despite this, many central banks are still conducting the process. Printing paper bills is highly expensive and has an uncertain future. US money printer De La Rue saw a sharp decline in its shares when it announced the presence of “material uncertainty” surrounding its future. The announcement caused a decline of almost 25 per cent in the company’s share and made it a potential target for a takeover. Money printing despite being a figurative backbone to modern finance still lacks to provide a sense of confidence to the printers. Finance has evolved from bartering to coins to banknotes and…Nov 30, 2019
Apr 19, 2020 at 08:49 // News China and the USA have been competing with each other for some time now. Presently, both countries are looking to develop their Central Bank Digital Currency (CDBC) to adjust to the changing environment affected by the COVID-19. Talks about switching to digital money instead of fiat have been held for long. For some people, it is actually a way to minimize the risk of infection, while others simply think digital payments are more convenient. As the interest in cryptocurrency among common folk is growing, countries are prompted to adjust to people’s demand. Growing interest in CDBC As of now, there are a number of countries exploring the potential and possible frameworks for developing CDBC. France has been experimenting with Digital Euro for cross-bank transactions, the Central Bank of Korea has announced a 20-month pilot testing of Digital Won for micro-payments. Now, it seems time has come for the USA and China, as they are one of the world’s largest and most affected economies. First rumours about the development of the Digital Dollar arose…Apr 19, 2020

CoolBitX Founder Michael Ou believes regulators in Asia are leading the way when it comes to compliance with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) travel rule, which is due to be implemented in June. The startup has developed a solution to the travel rule, called Sygna Bridge, which allows exchanges to communicate the identities of the senders and receivers of each transaction. On May 7 it announced it had conducted a series of cross-border transfer tests that demonstrated Sygna Bridge’s effectiveness in complying with the FATF guidelines by verifying transactions against the names of known terrorists and drug dealers. Singapore and South Korea Ou told Cointelegraph that in his opinion Singapore and South Korea have the best regulatory oversight in the lead up to the travel rule being reviewed in a few weeks. “Asia is on the path to change the [crypto] industry and may provide a blueprint for the rest of the world,” he said, noting Singapore’s Payment Services Act and South Korean legislation amending the Act on Reporting and Using Specified Financial Transaction Information, as examples of regulators…May 14, 2020
Digital Foundry published new coverage of Mark Cerny’s PS5 deep dive. The coverage is heavily technical and includes no headline-grabbing revelations. The bottom line is that the console remains an enigma for the average would-be PS5 owner. In the wake of Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal, Digital Foundry honed its tech analysis wizardry to parse Mark Cerny’s deep dive. And once again, the average would-be PS5 owner is going to be left disappointed. Keeping to the theme of the known PlayStation 5 details, Digital Foundry’s analysis lands firmly on the technical end of the spectrum. Rather than offer up new headline-grabbing revelations about the PS5, it complements Mark Cerny’s jargon-heavy deep dive. A Complement to Mark Cerny’s PlayStation 5 Deep Dive Aided by a discussion with the console’s lead architect himself, Digital Foundry analyzes the tech underpinning the PlayStation 5. There’s a particular focus on the prominent features – the PS5’s boost clock, backward compatibility, SSD, and Tempest 3D Audio engine. The video clears up a contentious issue that has fueled discussion – whether the SoC’s set power budget would limit…Apr 2, 2020
Bitcoin (BTC) appears vulnerable to decline lower now that the bulls have lost momentum and the price has declined below $10k. In all fairness, saying the bulls have “lost momentum” seems so ludicrous when you know what is really going on. However, for the sake of neutrality and being unbiased, let’s just say that is what is going on at the momentum. The price seems to be forming a head and shoulder formation at the moment which could lead to a potential decline down to the $9.3k level from current levels. If the price finds support there, we could expect another rally towards $10k or slightly higher to test the $10.5k level. Most traders on Crypto Twitter are inexperienced optimists or pessimists but there are realists too that call it like it is. To most of those realists, it is not a question of if BTC/USD will decline below this rising wedge but when it will decline. That decline is expected to pull the price down to the 200-day moving average around $9k where Bitcoin will have to decide what…Feb 11, 2020
The Dow Jones swung wildly between gains and losses on Thursday. Stock market bulls shrugged off a miserable jobless claims report as Trump rallied the oil price. As the coronavirus shutdown continues, financial pressures on balance sheets have removed a crucial support from the Dow. The Dow Jones swung wildly on Thursday as a flurry of dizzying economic headlines left investors delirious. Donald Trump spurred the oil price toward its largest single-day rally ever, while U.S. jobless claims surged past even the most bearish economists’ predictions. The stock market continues to hold off its yearly lows, but support from share buybacks has evaporated, placing intense pressure on the Dow and S&P 500. Dow Wobbles as Unemployment Spikes & Oil Price Soars The Dow Jones chopped between gains and losses on Thursday as Trump pumped the oil price. | Source: Yahoo Finance All three of the major U.S. stock market indices endured severe price fluctuations today.

The U.S. housing market could take a turn for the worse next year as Realtor.com data suggests. The market is currently in a bubble as adverse economic conditions won’t favor the recent price rise. Weak wage growth and rising mortgage rates are bad news for the market in 2020 as affordability will take a hit. The U.S. housing market is in a bubble right now, though you might not be willing to believe the same. After all, home prices seem to be on a roll as per the Case-Shiller Home Price Index, and they are expected to rise in the mid-single digits next year.

Contrary to more bullish claims, the real estate listings website predicts a negligible increase…Dec 4, 2019
Cryptocurrency rules imposed by governments have been different across various jurisdictions. This has given birth to a uniquely vulnerable form of regulatory arbitrate that allows stakeholders to take advantage of polarised stances from various authorities. Breaking down this aspect and coordinating for broadly similar guidelines across the globe will allow for more clarity and bring in the wave of institutional adoption that crypto has yearned for, as reported by Forbes, December 9, 2019. Establishing a Common Framework Running a cryptocurrency exchange in China is probably one of the most stressful enterprises to manage. Undue regulatory pressure, sudden raids, and the need to get on the good side of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members are all part of the game. Circumstances like this caused Changpeng Zhao to move Binance from China and into Malta. Regulators from various states hold highly diverse opinions. Some, like Brad Sherman, want an outright ban while others want to embrace it. Discussions at international forums like the G20 have raised very pertinent questions, mainly revolving around the drawbacks of allowing the industry to operate outside the…Dec 11, 2019
