BLOCK REWARD

An incentive for a miner who successfully calculates a valid hash in a block during mining.

Block reward refers to the cryptocurrency rewarded to a miner when they successfully validate a new block.

The block reward is made of two components: the block subsidy and the transactions fees. The block subsidy consists of newly generated coins and represents the biggest part of a block reward. The other part is made up of all fees paid by the transactions that are included in the block.

Because the block reward is almost entirely made of the block subsidy, it is very common to see people talking about the block subsidy while referring to it as the block reward. So in popular terminology, the term “block reward” doesn’t account for the fees.

BAKKT Warehouse Launches Deposits and Withdrawals as Planned

Bakkt Warehouse, a qualified custodian of crypto trading platform Bakkt, is now accepting customer Bitcoin (BTC) deposits and withdrawals.

First physical BTC futures on the way
As the company tweeted on Sept. 6, Bakkt Warehouse has officially launched in accordance with the plans revealed on Aug. 28.

The launch of Bakkt Warehouse comes as the company prepares to roll out its platform for Bitcoin daily and monthly futures in the United States on Sept. 23. The platform will enable two types of physically-delivered Bitcoin futures with end-to-end regulated markets and custody, as previously reported.

According to a Bloomberg report, Bakkt will be the first platform to offer physically-delivered Bitcoin futures if launched successfully. In contrast to the existing cash-settled Bitcoin futures offered by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board Options Exchange, Bakkt’s physically-settled futures will enable clients to receive payment in Bitcoin once the futures contract expires.

Operating structure
Once launched, trades will take place on the futures platform run by Bakkt’s parent company, the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), while clearing will be settled through ICE Clear.

Meanwhile, custody will be operated by Bakkt Trust Company, which reportedly received a charter from the New York State Department of Financial Services to hold clients’ crypto funds in August 2019. In turn, Bakkt Warehouse will be moving Bitcoin from short positions to long positions at expiration, which will lead to the actual delivery of Bitcoin.

CUBANS Are Turning to Bitcoin to ACCESS Global Economy

CUBANS Are Turning to Bitcoin to ACCESS Global Economy

A Sept. 12 report from U.S. News claims that, with the recent advent of mobile internet in the country, Cubans are increasingly using cryptocurrencies to make online purchases, as well as to invest and trade.

“Opening new doors” in retail
Without access to debit or credit cards for international use, cryptocurrency-enabled purchases are a welcome opportunity for consumers. In an interview with U.S. News, local resident Jason Sanchez said cryptocurrencies were “opening new doors” for Cubans.

The 35-year-old said that he was now able to purchase spare parts for his cellphone repair shop in Havana from an online Chinese store because of BTC.

“We are using cryptocurrencies to top up our cellphones, to make purchases online, and there are even people reserving hotel rooms.”

With credit cards uncommon, many local crypto users reportedly need to ask relatives abroad to help them to enter the cryptocurrency markets or turn to social media channels such as CubaCripto.

Exchanges where cash is swapped for Bitcoin in person — using a mobile or laptop to carry out the transaction — are another option, the report notes.

A solution to financial EXCLUSION

About 1,300 users are currently using Fusyona, which claims to be Cuba’s first cryptocurrency exchange. The platform allows people abroad to send remittances to the country, or to invest in nine different cryptocurrencies via a larger exchange — with services charged at a fee of up to 10%. Fusyona founder Adrian C. Leon told U.S. News:

“For foreigners, cryptocurrencies is just another option. But for Cubans, it is a necessity and can be a solution to their exclusion from the global financial community.”

Overstock Founder Dumps His Stake for Gold, Crypto Assets

OVERSTOCK Founder DUMPS His Stake for Gold, Crypto Assets

Patrick Byrne, the eccentric former chief executive officer of Overstock.com Inc., sold his entire holdings in the company he founded and said he would park the proceeds in gold and cryptocurrency.

Byrne cashed out nearly 5 million shares for about $90 million, according to a regulatory filing late Wednesday. The sales started Monday after a 65% surge took the stock to the highest in almost a year last on Sept. 13. The stock plunged 20% that day and is down 35% so far this week. Shares fell as much as 8.9%.

In a Wednesday blog post titled “A Message to My Former Colleagues at Overstock,” Byrne, 56, said he planned to plow the proceeds in securities that are “counter-cyclical to the economy,” including gold, silver, and two types of cryptocurrencies by Friday. Byrne also said he would be willing to provide a “capital injection if needed by buying back into Overstock” once he’s legally allowed to do so.

O que são Stablecoins?

Talvez um dos maiores receios do público em relação às criptomoedas seja a volatilidade. Após a ascensão apresentada no fim de 2017 e a subsequente queda, é normal que leigos temam a estabilidade do valor dos criptoativos sem conhecer os fundamentos por trás deles.

Contudo, nem toda criptomoeda do mercado está submetida às variações de valor. As moedas estáveis, ou stablecoins, guardam um valor fixo ditado por um ativo que lhes serve de base. Pode ser uma moeda fiduciária (como o dólar americano), ouro, petróleo, ações de uma empresa – uma stablecoin sempre terá lastro em um ativo.

Uma alternativa às respostas negativas

Não é incomum o surgimento de notícias a envolver o fecho  de contas de exchanges por bancos. Seja por temor ou por excesso de cautela, faz parte da história das criptomoedas esse tipo de prática: instituições financeiras rejeitam a ideia de servir negócios envolvidos com criptoativos.

Isso impactava diretamente a dinâmica das exchanges, uma vez que não era possível negociar com moedas fiduciárias nas exchanges.

Neste cenário, surgiu o conceito de stablecoin, uma criptomoeda pareada com o valor de um ativo representando a posse do usuário da exchange.

O formato mais comum de pareamento de uma stablecoin é a relação 1:1 com uma moeda fiduciária, geralmente o dólar americano.

É a garantia que traders possuem sobre guardar uma versão digital de uma moeda fiduciária, quando foi impossibilitado o armazenamento da versão real da mesma moeda.

Algumas: Binance coin, Tether, TUSD

Existem algumas vantagens?

  • Sistema Descentralizado: Ao contrário de outras stablecoins, estas tem o esquema mais descentralizado de todas.
  • Maior eficiência: pode transformar rapidamente qualquer tipo de criptomoeda para outro lado na rede. É relativamente fácil de fazer e aumenta o processo de liquidação.
  • Transparência: Todas as transações são registradas no sistema de contabilidade, para que você possa saber tudo o que está a acontecer.
  • Cria alavancagem: Como as moedas são sobre alavancadas, qualquer usuário pode usá-la como meio de negociação, o que garante um processo eficiente.

E quanto às desvantagens?

  • Instabilidade: Como esses tipos de pilares são respaldados por criptomoedas em si, seu senso comum de que seria mais volátil do que outros tipos de moedas estáveis.
  • Complexidade: O processo de cunhagem é um pouco complexo e depende de muitos fatores. Se até um deles estiver faltando, todo o processo entrará em colapso.
  • Liquidação Instantânea: Pode ser uma bênção e uma maldição. Como você sabe, você pode liquidar seus ativos se estiver abaixo do valor limite. Mas ao fazê-lo, a faixa de preço poderia mudar drasticamente, tornando todo o sistema volátil.

New Zealand legalises SALARIES paid in cryptocurrencies

Tax ruling brings digital currencies in line with mainstream forms of payment.

New Zealand has become the first country legally to back companies that are paying employees in cryptocurrencies, in a move that brings the oft-maligned asset class in line with mainstream forms of payment.

Cryptocurrencies are largely unregulated, digital currencies that enable users to send money online without being tracked.

The ruling by New Zealand’s tax authority allows salaries and wages to be paid in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin from September 1, as long as the payments are in regular, fixed amounts. The digital currency of choice must also be pegged to at least one regular currency and must be able to be converted directly into a standard form of payment.
