Reviews for the Google Stadia are here ahead of tomorrow’s release. The consensus is one of excellent technology let down by a lack of features, games, and functionality. There’s a risk that Google may axe Stadia before it’s had a chance to find its feet. Google Stadia is a curiosity that is as alluring as it is eyebrow-raising. From shipping woes to the last-minute addition of launch titles by way of some pretty bold ‘negative latency’ claims, it remains wholly unproven and one that feels shy of the basic requirements of a successful launch. In anticipation of tomorrow’s grand release (that is if you’re lucky enough to receive your Founder’s kit tomorrow morning), the first reviews have hit. Somewhat unsurprisingly, not everyone is impressed. The media is trashing Stadia across the board. And, this not so much for the technology itself but for the lack of a service backing it up, whether that means games or functionality. In other words, the Stadia is underwhelming and, well, boring. Google Stadia feels woefully undercooked, which doesn’t bode well for its long-term future…Nov 19, 2019
Martin Chorzempa, a research fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, provided insight into the motivations and objectives underpinning the development of China’s state-backed Blockchain Service Network (BSN) while speaking at Consensus:Distributed on May 12. Chorzempa highlighted the domestic goals of China’s blockchain strategy, describing the BSN as a means for China to keep abreast of innovations within the distributed ledger technology (DLT) sector while restricting the penetration of foreign firms and protecting against capital flight. China’s strategy design to mitigate ‘foreign threat’ Chorzempa emphasized that China wants to be “at the cutting edge and know where the interesting innovations are and apply them well, rather than having to respond to innovations that come from elsewhere.” “China had a negative experience with the first few waves of digital currency, of cryptocurrency, and ICOs,” the researcher said, continuing: “It was perceived as a kind of foreign-imposed, foreign threat that the PBoC, China‘s central bank, had to figure out quickly how to respond to.” Chorzempa stated that the People’s Bank of China sought to determine what aspects of the emerging crypto…May 12, 2020
As the dust begins to settle over MakerDAO’s Black Thursday incident, the team is now returning to a normal working pace. We took the opportunity to catch up with Rune Christensen, one of the original founders of the protocol, for a full recap of the situation and what it means for Maker (MKR). Christensen had been oddly quiet as the events were unfolding, never joining any forum discussion or issuing comments to the media — until now. MakerDAO provides users with stable DAI cryptocurrency in exchange for their volatile crypto holdings, and the platform faced a reckoning as Ethereum crashed in unison with almost every other economic asset on March 12. A series of issues resulted in the protocol missing about $5 million in collateral, destabilizing the lending platform and its DAI stablecoin. Cointelegraph closely followed the subsequent emergency measures, which included the introduction of USDC as an additional form of supported collateral and the auctioning of newly minted MKR tokens. In this first part of his interview with Cointelegraph, Christensen provides commentary and explains why he was off the…Apr 7, 2020
The past three months of the year have been a rollercoaster ride across the world as the COVID-19 pandemic set the global assets and economies at a standstill or regressing pattern. Assets across the board including stocks, gold and Bitcoin (BTC) have suffered during this time setting record volatility levels across the month of March. Over the past 30-days, the S&P 500 volatility reached an all-time high in the average daily volatility recording 4.82%. While remaining relatively stable during the capitulation in asset markets, gold still set its highest 30-day average volatility witnessing an average of 2.36% – highest since September 2011. As it has become customary, Bitcoin has historically seen high volatility and March was no different as the top crypto set its highest volatility since the end of 2013. BTC 30-day volatility hits five year high Bitcoin (BTC) volatility set a five year high on its 30-day average volatility as the asset faced one of its most volatile months as the fears of COVID-19 grew out of proportion. According to data aggregator, Buy Bitcoin Worldwide, the 30-day volatility…Apr 5, 2020
Bitcoin (BTC) is running out of time to sustain its bullish momentum. It has declined close to 2% for the day but it is likely to trade sideways for a while. The game plan seems to be the whales and market makers encouraging retail traders to go for altcoins, not Bitcoin (BTC). They want them to bag their favorite altcoins just before the beginning of a major downtrend. The daily chart for BTC/USD shows that Bitcoin (BTC) is running out of room and will soon have to begin the next downtrend. The fib time zone shows the price breaking past the 61.8% level and is now on the verge of breaking out of the rising wedge that it has been trading in since the beginning of the year. It is important to realize that this is a time where everyone from retail traders to crypto fund managers are bullish on the market but certain things are not the same as before. First of all, there is no real trading volume. Most of it is driven by the whales that keep…Feb 13, 2020
SEOUL, South Korea, April 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As much as the roller-coaster stock market, bitcoin investment sentiment tends to be extremely divided. In a recent survey conducted by digital assets wallet ‘Dove Wallet’, when asked about their willingness to buy Bitcoin at this havoc, 39% of respondents expressed ‘now as a full bull without hesitation,’ while 35% said they would liquidate them all. Overall, according to the survey findings, 51% of all respondents were still optimistic about bitcoin investment, while 41% of respondents showed a negative stance. It is somewhat surprising, taking into account that survey participants were mostly crypto traders. Such neck and neck, dichotomous views seem to reflect the current sentiment of the fearful market with unprecedented volatility and uncertainty. Interestingly, the survey showed that participants from India looked at Bitcoin investment in a more positive light than other parts of the world despite sharp market fluctuations. The survey polled over 8,435 cryptocurrency users worldwide, conducted by Dove Wallet, to explore the impact of current economic uncertainty on crypto user’s Bitcoin investment. “Despite crash market and…Apr 2, 2020
The Mortgage Bankers Association warned that the Federal Reserve’s purchase of mortgage-backed securities has disrupted the market. As a result, lenders may be unable to meet hedge calls from brokers within one or two days. The warning casts an ominous shadow on predictions that the Fed could dive into the stock market next. The Mortgage Bankers Association has told the Federal Reserve to keep its mitts off mortgage bonds. And if there’s anything this fiasco proves, it’s that the U.S. central bank needs to stay the hell away from the stock market too. In a somber letter to regulators, the MBA warned that the Federal Reserve has put the U.S. housing market “in danger of large-scale disruption.” Why? Because the Fed purchased $183 billion in mortgage-backed securities last week. The MBA argues that the move caused an explosion in margin calls on mortgage lenders. Consequently, lenders are at risk of running out of working capital. At an unprecedented time when the Fed may begin passively purchasing stocks, this warning outlines the significant risks of intervention. Instead of helping an increasingly…Mar 30, 2020
J.P. Koning, a CoinDesk columnist, worked as an equity researcher at a Canadian brokerage firm and a financial writer at a large Canadian bank. He runs the popular Moneyness blog. Does the dai stablecoin need negative interest rates? The coronavirus smashed into markets on March 12. U.S. equity prices plunged by 10 percent, their worst decline since the 1987 stock market crash. Bitcoin and ethereum prices plummeted almost 50 percent. Meanwhile, the price of dai skyrocketed as high as $1.50. This shouldn’t have happened. Dai is a stablecoin. Its role is to mimic the performance of an underlying national currency, in this case the U.S. dollar. Since it came into existence three years ago, dai has mostly hewed to its stated target of $1 U.S. dollar. But at $1.50, dai was suddenly worth one-and-a-half U.S. dollars. It didn’t look very stable at all. See also: MakerDAO Users Sue Stablecoin Issuer Following ‘Black Thursday’ Losses Dai has since retreated to a range of $1.01 – $1.03. Nevertheless, it has now spent a full month above its $1 peg – and shows no signs…Apr 21, 2020
British FCA will now be responsible for monitoring counter-terrorist funding and anti-money laundering (AML) activities related to companies operating in the crypto realm. Authorities in Britain have announced that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will check whether cryptocurrency firms operating in the United Kingdom adhere to the country’s relevant guidelines on AML or not. Britain’s crypto regulations are somewhat less clear compared to other crypto-friendly nations. Over the years, it has warmed up to the crypto realm. What British FCA wants from the crypto businesses The official announcement further mentions the exact requirements expected from the crypto businesses operating in the country. The British FCA clearly states that cryptocurrency-related firms must comply with appropriate guidelines.

It aims to take swift action against the companies that do not meet the standards of the financial industry and may risk market integrity. Britain’s crypto…Jan 13, 2020
Buterin said that the annual token issuance with Ethereum 2.0 will be reduced to less than half of the current token issuance. There will be other developments like the accurate prediction of the transaction’s optimal fee amount. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has recently given some important updates for the issuance of ETH 2.0 cryptocurrency. During his latest podcast interview with POV Crypto called “Internet Money”, Buterin spilled-the-beans saying that the issuance of ETH 2.0 shall be reduced to two million a year. This is less than half of the annual token issuance for Ethereum which is 4.7 million a year. While discussing some developments, Buterin also explained why they decided to move to the Proof-of-Stake protocol with Ethereum 2.0. Speaking about this upgraded consensus mechanism, Buterin said: “One of the reasons why we’re doing Proof of Stake is because we want to greatly reduce the issuance. So in the specs for ETH 2.0 I think we have put out a calculation that the theoretical maximum issuance would be something like 2 million a year if literally everyone participates.” Ethereum developers…May 2, 2020
