Bombshell message: the first large-scale regulated exchange for institutional investors

ICE, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange and dozens other exchanges, launches Bakkt — a service for institutional investors

Bakkt is aimed to work with big companies, like Microsoft and Starbucks, to help them integrate crypto easier. After launch, it will offer physically-settled bitcoin futures and a custodian service for their clients.

That's the best news of this month. To cut it short: it's the first large-scale regulated exchange for institutional investors. And it's built by ICE, owner of NYSE. That's a kind of trust that pension funds need. And by their talks, it seems that they are going to promote it as much as possible. And even those who didn't like the other exchanges will be convinced enough to try it. It will get an approval by the SEC, there is no doubt in it, and soon the money will start pouring in.

All these price movements that we are seeing now, are irrelevant. The OTC (over the counter) market is a lot bigger than the official one because the current exchanges lack liquidity. Thus the price can be manipulated to force out all retail investors. But this Bakkt exchange could bring investors that don't sell in panic. Instead, they hold their chosen assets for years, like pension funds. And just think what will it do to the price of BTC, given that there is only 15 million of BTC left (not counting the lost ones). That's it.

The asset can be manipulated, and sold to be bought lower if there's not much action on the market. But if there is a high demand, and everything you sell is instantly bought out, then you'd better keep your assets for yourself, or you'll end up rebuying it higher, as the price will be rising fast.

Announcement: Kadena Public Blockchain Testnet LIVE

MARCH 26, 2019 – BROOKLYN, NY Kadena is excited to announce that Chainweb–Kadena’s public proof-of-work blockchain–is now live in testnet! What is Chainweb Testnet? This version features the core innovation of Kadena’s Chainweb: multiple, braided proof-of work chains progressing in parallel, each referencing its peer chains, synced over three global regions (Asia, US, EU) to represent a truly distributed, secure, scalable blockchain. Chainweb Testnet v0 includes: 10 chains – This is the most innovative and important feature of Chainweb. We are testing the security and scalability of braiding multiple Bitcoin-like (proof-of-work) chains. Three regions – In order to truly test the speeds of a global network, Kadena’s Chainweb Testnet v0 will test global latencies by syncing across servers in Asia, North America, and Europe. Fully open source and public binaries – Download and test the network yourself (Github links [pending]). Our public binaries are available at [pending] Process Pact transactions – Kadena’s open-source Pact language is easy to learn, and is purpose-built for blockchain, capturing simple transactions and more complex business workflows; Chainweb v0 intends to be able to support Pact transactions. Why is this testnet important? Kadena is a fundamental believer in the legacy and integrity of Bitcoin’s proof-of-work protocol. Chainweb is designed to give blockchain scalability AND security through its multi-chain configuration; we believe it is the first of its kind. For more about Chainweb, check out our 101/FAQ and read the whitepaper. How can I participate in testnet?  Beginning with v1 and v2, our testnet will become open to the public to participate in the network. v0 is private but open source on Github, so you can look at the code, compile, or download the binaries and run your own network and tests. Find something interesting? Let us know. Sign up for testnet participation updates via our newsletter. EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE: The 1st transaction on #Chainweb demonstrated by @SirLensALot! — Kadena (@kadena_io) March 26, 2019 What else is next?

We’ll soon publicize the methods by which our community can introduce and execute improvements to our protocol. Interested in mining Chainweb? Our next test version aims to have a mining client, sign up here to get on our Mining Waitlist. The post Announcement: Kadena Public Blockchain Testnet LIVE appeared first on NullTX.

Schrøder affirmed that the blockchain is useful […]
