Its Now Easier to Convert Fiat to Cryptocurrency Directly via AirSwap

Even when the growing list of decentralized exchanges is highly expected to reduce the amounts of cryptocurrencies lost in hacks, there’s one thing that they may fail to adequately resolve! They may not eliminate the need for traders to first acquire their digital assets on custodial wallets before transferring them to their respective “self-custodied” wallets. This means the risk of losing the assets is still imminent, at least among those who have not heard about AirSwap! Through AirSwap, you will buy cryptos on one tap! AirSwap, in partnership with Wyre, will be allowing crypto investors to directly swap fiat currency for Ethereum, everything happening at the user’s self-custodied wallet. This is possible through Wyre, an integration whose arrival was long overdue. Wyre is a global money service business, registered and permitted to operate in well over 40 countries. It is an integration service that enables a trader to exchange fiat of any type – USD, EUR, CAD, GBP, etc., for ETH. You can now trade with fiat directly on AirSwap with Wyre — AirSwap (@airswap) February 7, 2019 It not only allows swapping of cash for crypto, but also makes it breezy and incredibly convenient to buy crypto through the normal ACH way or bank transfers. It gets a lot more exciting when you consider the fact that one doesn’t even have to deposit funds to the exchange like it’s often the case with centralized exchanges! According to the CEO of Wyre, Michael Dunworth, the way AirSwap necessitates a one-on-one or peer-to-peer style trading is praiseworthy. He says that being at the center of it all, and especially when it means mitigating the risk that every trader often faces, is exciting. AirSwap’s fiat on-ramp strategy perfectly sums up their belief that every trader should not go through the hassles of storing private keys and still stand a chance of losing the assets. Their environment supports P2P trade is a testament to that! Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis Watch (Feb 8th)

The Daily: Huobi Adds USD Trading Pairs, Airswap Launches Fiat-to-Crypto Exchange

In this edition of The Daily, we cover two announcements regarding fiat-to-crypto trading services. The U.S. subsidiary of Huobi has introduced pairs between three cryptocurrencies and the U.S. dollar and peer-to-peer platform Airswap has enabled users to exchange fiat currency for ethereum. There’s also a new development in the Quadrigacx saga – a judge has granted the troubled exchange temporary protection from creditors.    Also read: 13% of Shoppers Would Buy Amazon Crypto, Wirex Adds Stablecoin Huobi Introduces Fiat Trading in the US The U.S. subsidiary of Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange Huobi has launched trading pairs with USD, the platform announced on its website. Currently, verified users are able to purchase and sell bitcoin core (BTC), ethereum (ETH), and the dollar-backed stablecoin tether (USDT) with U.S. dollars, the post details. To take advantage of the new fiat services, traders need to register for an Hbus account on the Huobi Marketplace, pass level one and two verifications via the ‘Account & Security’ tab and accept the terms under ‘Open a USD wallet.’ The option is available via the ‘Balances’ section. The USD support has been provided through a partnership between and custody and escrow services provider Prime Trust. Users are also required to open a Prime Trust account and link it to their Hbus account. Hbus is the San Francisco-based partner of Huobi Global that runs the U.S. trading platform. Huobi plans to reward the first 500 customers who open a USD wallet with 20 USDT. However, only traders residing in the U.S. are eligible to receive the rewards. Airswap and Wyre Offer Support for Fiat Currencies Thanks to a new partnership with Wyre, peer-to-peer trading network Airswap allows users to exchange fiat currency for cryptocurrency. The platform supports USD, GBP, EUR, and AUD. According to a post on Medium, traders will be able to purchase ETH with these currencies within their noncustodial wallet using the Airswap trading interface. Wyre is a registered money service business licensed to operate in over 40 U.S. states. The integration between the two platforms allows investors to purchase cryptocurrency via ACH/wire bank transfers, without the need to deposit funds onto a centralized exchange. Commenting on the partnership, Wyre CEO Michael Dunworth stated: Peer-to-Peer/OTC style trading is always a strong starting point for building meaningful liquidity. Airswap really gets this. Working with them to mitigate counter-party risk, without compromising on meaningful liquidity is so exciting to be part of. Airswap noted in a statement that by enabling a fiat on-ramp to the network, it will “empower users to always maintain control of their private keys in an environment dedicated to supporting peer-to-peer trade.” Judge Grants Quadrigacx Reprieve From Lawsuits Crypto exchange Quadrigacx, which lost access to cryptocurrency worth millions of dollars after its founder’s alleged death, has been granted temporary protection from creditor lawsuits. Judge Michael Wood ordered a 30-day stay that precludes filing of claims against the digital asset trading platform, one of the largest in Canada. Thousands of investors have been left without their funds after 30-year-old CEO Gerald Cotten reportedly died in December of complications from Crohn’s disease while in India, and some of them have threatened lawsuits. Cotten is believed to be the only person who had the passwords for the cold wallets containing around 190 million Canadian dollars (~$143 million) in cryptocurrencies. “Despite repeated and diligent searches, I have not been able to find [the passwords] written down anywhere,” his widow Jennifer Robertson said in an affidavit, quoted by RTE. According to a court document, Quadrigacx owes 115,000 users a total equivalent to 250 million Canadian dollars (~$188 million). Quadrigacx’s lawyer Maurice Chiasson told the court the company needs time to find the money it owes. The exchange is currently considering selling its platforms to cover the debts. A third-party monitor, Ernst & Young, has been appointed to help Quadrigacx manage its finances. What are your thoughts on today’s news tidbits? Tell us in the comments section.

Decentralized Trading Platform AirSwap Unveils New DexIndex Product to Remain Competitive

AirSwap, a decentralized trading platform, has released a new data aggregator product. The information was released on January 31st, showing that the company wants to remain competitive in a market that has been performing very poorly in the last few months. According to The Block, the new product is called DexIndex and it provides information about how several digital assets are trading in different decentralized exchanges. This could be very useful for individuals and investors that have purchased several ERC-20 assets. Graham Perich, a developer at AirSwap, commented that if users are working on a trading desk, they might use the data and inform trading algorithms about it. The new product is open-source, allowing other individuals and interested parties to use it for free. Additionally, developers can use it to build applications that need real-time pricing data, including wallet providers. Decentralized exchanges (DEX) are different than centralized platforms. DEX’s allow users to sell and purchase cryptocurrencies without having to give their private keys to a centralized third party such an exchange. During 2018, decentralized exchanges collapsed 95% year-to-date and AirSwap is currently handling $20,000 in trades per month. Decentralized exchanges provide more security to users. Centralized platforms have been attacked by different hackers resulting in the loss of millions of dollars in cryptocurrencies. As in DEXs users hold their own private keys, they are responsible for their own virtual currencies. Perich commented about the new open-source initiative: “When you are able to share software within the community it creates beneficial relationships. If you have something that works, an infrastructure stack, and you can help other organizations keep their nodes updated with it, then that’s good for everyone.” There are several popular centralized exchanges in the market that are starting to work on their own decentralized platforms. Binance is one of the exchanges that is working in a DEX that is user-friendly and easy to use. In general, DEXs are not user-friendly and is difficult to use them. In Silicon Valley, sharing code is something very common. However, this is novel in World Street. Just a few companies are making their code available for the public.
