Ban! Ban! China is Against Video Games (Aug, 31 Daily)

LINE's crypto, BitMEX analyzing Bitmain, China almost banning itself, challenges at Ethereum hardfork, CBOE and possible ETH futures

  • LINE will have its own cryptocurrency. The popular messenger will integrate LINK as its native currency. Tokens will be available exclusively on BITBOX, LINE’s own digital asset exchange.
  • Bitmex crunches Bitmain’s numbers. Bitmex shared the results of their research on Bitmain’s IPO. According to the chart-heavy report, the Chinese mining giant has lost about a third of a billion in consequence of investing in Bitcoin Cash.
  • Our regular column China Bans: Video games. If you think that China is laying back after banning everything crypto-related, you are wrong. China is now squinting at video games because they supposedly hinder the Chinese youth’s development.
  • Ethereum’s upcoming hardfork has a lot to deal with. One of the developers’ primary concerns is the difficulty bomb, i.e. the growing mining difficulty problem, which if neglected can destroy Ethereum, as transactions will take forever to process. In response to the hardfork’s proposition to cut block rewards, Brian Venturo says:

If you reduce the block reward you’re going to price out a large proportion of hardware

UPDATE. The conference is coming to end, and Afri Schoedon stated:

We agreed to accept EIP-1234 w/ 2 ETH block reward with the modification to delay the bomb by 12 months not 18. And it was accepted under the "condition" that we consider ProgPoW in the next hardfork and that we go for a better defined monetary policy

Afri Schoedon, Parity Develpoer

  • CBOE is aiming at ETH futures. Right now the exchange is waiting for some clarifications from CFTC. ETH futures should be up for launch by the end of 2018 and are expected to attract a wider trading.

Harbor Tokenizes $100 Million in Real Estate Funds on ETH

One of the leading tokenization platforms, Harbor announced this week that they successfully tokenized $100 million in real estate funds. The firm tokenized four major funds with the goal to increase liquidity for investors. The move showcases growing interest by investors towards tokenized real estate. As part of the tokenization, Harbor provides investors with access to their inclusive platform. Here, investors can trade their securities in full compliance with the SEC. Speaking on the decision, Harbor’s CEO, Josh Stein described the maneuver as the natural evolution. The tokenized real estate fund includes a mash-up of 17 broker-dealers, a myriad of placement agents, and approximately 1,100 private investors. Importantly, iCAP Equity is the fund’s manager. Harbor Tokenizes $100 Million in Real Estate Funds via Twitter iCAP’s CEO, Chris Christenson spoke on the decision in detail in a recent interview. Here he explained why it was important to create the best investment experience possible for his clients. In his words, the best way to accomplish this monumental task was “providing liquidity for them.” Harbor Tokenizes Funds on Ethereum Blockchain Harbor chose Ethereum’s ERC-20 standard for the tokenization of the funds. Traditionally, Harbor would use its native R-token standard but developers decided that due to the passive nature of the investment, ERC-20 tokens were better suited for the task. More than Issuance Stein envisions Harbor as more than just an issuance platform. Now, the company seeks to provide businesses with a solid tokenization infrastructure. In this manner, companies can tokenize their existing assets. Stein explained that the demand for newly issued tokens was far less than previously expected. Interestingly, Harbor noticed that most STO investors were of the speculative nature versus true investments. Tokenizing Existing Assets Notably, Harbor discovered that tokenizing assets that already have value were much easier to market. For one, they are more geared towards the traditional investment community. Harbor Tokenizes Shares to Add Liquidity to the Market Traditionally, securities investors agree upon a multi-year lockup. Basically, you can’t sell your shares until an agreed-upon date. The problem here is that in many instances, investors need to access those funds for certain reasons prior to the agreed-upon date. In the traditional system, an investor would have to wait out the years until granted sales access or find an investor willing to take over the waiting period. Harbor’s platform does away with this nonsense and allows investors to trade their tokenized shares as soon as the SEC mandatory one year lockup period ends. Experience Equals Lessons Like any true pioneer, hard lessons were part of the learning process. Last year, Harbor attempted to issue tokenized shares in an apartment building. While the concept was solid, discrepancies arose between the mortgage lender. In the end, the deal was scrapped before launch. Harbor Tokenizes the World Harbor appears to have the flexibility and forward-thinking needed to adjust to the ever-changing crypto landscape. You can expect to see more major players in the tokenization sector begin to duplicate this strategy in the coming months. For now, Harbor appears to be a step ahead of the curve.
