The new service completely removes all the problems of pre-funding in cross-border remittance services by serving as a bridge (corridor) for sending and receiving different currencies.

As we are coming to the year’s end we somehow always tend to look in the past to reconcile what was good and what wasn’t. Speaking of the IPOs, we can surely say this year was marked by numerous IPO failures with more than half of stock market debuts now trading below their initial offering.We can just mention hail-raiding companies as are Uber and Lyft who were probably the biggest losers of the year. However, there were also plenty of unicorns that got smashed in 2019 including Peloton (the third-worst debut of the last decade) and Slack (trading at almost half its IPO price).And of course, let’s not forget WeWork. The company filed its public-offering paperwork in August. Then, in only one month, the co-working company cut its valuation down from $47 billion to a pathetic $10 billion. Then it removed Adam Neumann as CEO, and delayed its initial public offering indefinitely. But that’s not the end. In October, WeWork was taken over by its biggest investor, Softbank who gave Neumann a $1.7 billion golden parachute to step down from…Dec 4, 2019
Moog Inc., a United States-based designer and maker of motion and fluid control systems for aircraft, has integrated distributed ledger technology (DLT) into its processes in a bid to speed up the cumbersome process of aircraft parts replacement, according to a Wall Street Journal report on November 26, 2019.Simplifying Existing ProcessesDue to the heavily regulated nature of the aircraft spare parts market, airline operators often have to wait for several weeks before getting replacements for defective parts, as the sale of these components must first pass lengthy certification processes from the Federal Aviation Administration and other relevant agencies.

In a bid to hasten up the entire process of aircraft parts replacement, Moog Inc has successfully carried out its first trial of blockchain technology and 3D printing.Per sources close to the matter, Moog Inc has successfully demonstrated that blockchain technology and 3D printing has all it takes to simplify the existing processes in the aircraft component markets and create a whole new digital marketplace for aeroplane parts.Moog Taps DLT and…Nov 27, 2019
To protect users from unintentionally downloading crypto mining scripts, Microsoft is releasing its new Edge browser, which is designed to block this type of malware. Microsoft Edge’s Blocker Is Superior to SmartScreenMicrosoft recently released the first full version of its chromium-based browser Microsoft Edge with several design improvements. For example, it brings new security features to protect users from automatically downloading unwanted apps, such as adware and other malicious programs that harm a user’s PC.Aware of “the increasing threat of cryptocurrency miners,” the new Microsoft browser has been designed to block this type of malicious scripts. Crypto mining malware comprises software programs and malware components programmed to seize a computer’s resources and use them for cryptocurrency mining, such as Bitcoin, without the computer owner’s consent. Don Sharp, writing for Windows Report, explains,Microsoft Edge users will soon be able to navigate the web without the risk of unintentionally downloading crypto miners. This feature targets the ‘less reputable’ sources that infect sites or online ads with crypto-mining code, which executes stealthily after loading in the victim’s browser.

Bitcoin’s price crash last week has cast a shadow over mining firms, which have spent over half a billion dollars overhauling equipment over the last six months in preparation for the network’s next so-called halving.Large bitcoin (BTC) mining farm operators in three countries told CoinDesk they’ve been on a buying spree to upgrade or expand facilities since September, reflecting a shared commitment to staying in the mining game for the long haul. In May, the amount of freshly minted bitcoin awarded to a successful miner every 10 minutes or so will be programmatically split in half, hitting these firm’s top line. Since older equipment is becoming unprofitable even before the reward is cut, more than $500 million has been poured into the new, more efficient machines that can churn out more bitcoin, according to a CoinDesk estimate.But bitcoin price’s recent plunge – crashing to below $5,000 on last Friday and recording a 50 percent drop since its high above $10,000 in late 2019 – is creating greater uncertainty about mining farms’ profitability.According to data from mining pool PoolIn, even the most efficient…Mar 16, 2020
This week will see an adjustment in bitcoin difficulty which will affect miners and could influence prices. The asset just closed its first large green weekly candle for three months so a trend reversal could also be in play.Bitcoin Difficulty IncreaseDifficulty on the bitcoin network is a measure of how problematic it is to find a hash below a given target. Valid blocks must have a hash below the global block difficulty target. There is also a share difficulty which applies to mining pools and their ability to find a hash that is lower than the global target.Mining difficulty adjusts automatically every 2,016 blocks on the network depending on the number of miners there are and their combination of time taken to find the next 2,016 blocks. Hash rates also influence the difficulty and they have been at all-time high recently which is why there is a need for an increase.Tuesday’s difficulty adjustment will be epic! pic.twitter.com/NZQ0xBppDd— PlanB (@100trillionUSD) January 12, 2020According to bitinfocharts.com, bitcoin network difficulty is currently at 13.8 T, its highest ever level.

Dec 16, 2019 at 16:08 // News Bitcoin dropped to the $7,000 low and moved up to retest $7,200 resistance. A possible rebound is expected as the coin finds support at $7,000 or $6,800Bitcoin Price Long-Term Prediction: Bearish Expectantly, Bitcoin is making a gradual fall to a low of the $6,800 or $7,000 support level. On December 14, the coin dropped to the low of $7,087 and moved up to retest the $7,200 resistance. BTC is pointing downward to the low of $7,087 to retest it. Our main focus is whether BTC will revisit the previous low of $6,800. When this low is broken, it will be possible to determine whether the coin will nosedive to the lows of $5,500 or $6,000. In contrast, Bitcoin is expected to rebound at a low of $7,000 or $6,800. A bounce should be strong enough to push Bitcoin above $8,000. A shallow bounce will only result in a range-bound move above the current price level. Bitcoin Indicator Reading Surprisingly, the coin has dropped to the oversold region of the daily stochastic.
