Put in pledge: another void is being filled by crypto

Binance entered the market of lending. Its latest investment in blockchain startup Libra Credit allowed to incorporate BNB tokens into the lending platform, developed by this startup. Now anyone, holding BNB tokens, will be able to use them as collateral to borrow fiat and crypto money

Another void in crypto space being filled. Nowadays, crypto startups try to implement all features of traditional banking services: payments, storing funds, exchanging currencies on-the-go, issuing debit cards, and now, giving loans. Lending in crypto is the same as in traditional banking, however, it requires a pledge, a collateral, to be placed in a smart contract, it can’t give non-backed loans yet.

We’ve seen some projects that issue crypto loans, like SALT, Micromoney or Lendoit, but they don't have the large influence, like Binance. It continues this year's trend of crypto exchanges expanding to all traditional areas, and becoming new types of banks. Now it's possible that we'll see Binance promoting this service, and it will facilitate the access to borrowing money during the periods of market decline.

What should you do if you need some money, but you don't want to sell at low prices? Pledge it! Smart contracts will make the process totally unbiased, and you will be able to get you crypto back when you'll pay back the loan. What next? Insurance on blockchain?

SonicX: New Blockchain Platform as a Competition to Libra?

Coinspeaker SonicX: New Blockchain Platform as a Competition to Libra?SonicX, a blockchain platform that provides trust, top-notch security and efficiency decided to develop a payment gateway that facilitates not only peer-to-peer transactions but also a tokenized system for content storage and online gaming.Appreciating the natural fit of blockchain decentralized platform and secured payment system for businesses like gaming, the SonicX team provided solutions to these challenges by building a decentralized platform for the internet users — using the SOX token; a blockchain architecture that has scalability at minimum cost and an ecosystem that will enable internet users to have their own digital governance.This blockchain platform is based on Tron’s architecture. As per that, SonicX will also be able to take advantage of Tron’s features. Some of the advantages include huge increasing of the platform’s TPS (transactions per second) and implementing its own digital governance that allows token holders to have voting rights that benefit the community in global.However, it is important to mention that the token (SOX) can also be used for making cross-border payments and that is what it makes it stand out as a potential global competitor to Facebook’s Libra currency.Big tech companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook have become stock market sensations, but it’s high valuations cannot really help them in the FinTech space. In fact, success could show as of a big problem for any tech major that wants to enter the payments space.As it’s already known, Facebook’s coin would be based on a very different idea than Bitcoin.Unlike Bitcoin, which is an open system, Libra is closed and will be highly protected.Facebook announced the currency in partnership with 27 major corporations including Visa, Mastercard, Lyft and Uber. These founding members constitute the Libra Association, which will be in charge of processing transactions for the network and maintaining its version of the blockchain.SonicX created a system that is in-line with the foundational philosophy of Bitcoin and makes it a viable global payment system. Also, let’s not forget, smaller companies like SonicX not only enjoy the advantage of flying under the radar of the government, but also have open-source code they can rely on.Libra aims to target a wide variety of services that integrates with Facebook and as that, it is ideal for micro-payments. However, it is pegged to fiat reserves so it’s a stable-coin, that will start off as highly centralized and eventually move over to a DPoS (Delegated Proof-of-Stake) system.The SOX tokens value is, on the other hand, determined by the free market and not pegged to fiat reserves. Although that can mean more volatility, the case for SOX over Libra is in value against fiat.SonicX is also great for e-gaming and cross-border payments. While specific to this market, it only means that it has a strong use case for it. Even though Libra appears more viable for transferring value over Facebook’s ecosystem, not everyone may want to use it. What if users do not want to use their Facebook account for making cross-border payments? In that case, their option is to use a permission-less and trust-less system like SonicX.SonicX: New Blockchain Platform as a Competition to Libra?

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis Yesterday, there was an upside correction in BCH price above the $290 and $300 levels against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair tested the $320 resistance level, but it struggled to continue higher. Recently, it started a fresh decline and broke the $300 support level. The price is down around 10% and it is trading near the $285 level. If there are more losses, the price could even test the $270 support level in the near term.

BNB price broke the $26.00 support level and even declined below $25.00. The next main support is near the $24.10 level, below which the price may even test the $23.80 level.
