Tokenized Group Moves Digital Asset Platform in BETA on Bitcoin SV

Tokenized Digital Asset Platform Winner of the 2018 CoinGeek ‘Best Tokenization Solution’, Tokenized Group, has just announced the launch of their platform. This solution has been tailor built to provide clients with the ability to tokenize real-world assets. The platform checks all of the right boxes, while ensuring regulatory compliance in any jurisdiction. Through the use of smart contracts, and the ability to complete atomic swaps, the Tokenized platform stands to be a flexible solution that will appeal to many. For full details on the features of this platform, and how it varies from its alpha variant, check out the announcement HERE. What makes this announcement of note, is the choice to build this platform on the BSV protocol. This decision represents a departure from the norm, as most companies have opted for some form of Ethereum based solution to date. Time will tell if BSV is the most appropriate protocol to host such an endeavour. Commentary In their announcement, Tokenized CEO, James Belding, commented on digital securities and their usage of Bitcoin SV. The following is what he had to say on the matter: “We look forward to helping everyone in the ecosystem add support for the open-source Tokenized Protocol in their own projects. We also welcome all users, organizations, developers, governments, and investors to reach out and find out how the Tokenized Protocol can benefit them…We believe our solution is the best token and smart contract system on the market, by far, and combined with the unrivalled scaling capabilities of the Bitcoin SV (BSV) network, we believe we can systemically improve the way our world engages in voluntary exchange.” He continued, “There is still a lot of work to be done in educating regulators, however, we are confident that all of the pieces are now in place to allow the protocol to be adopted globally as a replacement for all of the current financial messaging protocols.”  Tokenized Group Tokenized Group is an Australian company, which was founded by a trio of experienced professionals. James Belding – Founder and CEO Sam Georges – Cofounder and CTO Scott Barr – Cofounder and Head of Engineering This trio has set out to create a platform for the tokenization of real world assets, built on top of the BSV protocol. Bitcoin SV Bitcoin SV, or Bitcoin ‘Satoshi’s Vision’, is a variant of the Bitcoin protocol that stays truest to the original Bitcoin whitepaper. Since its inception, Bitcoin has undergone various makeovers, resulting is hardforks and protocol variants such as Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Dark, etc. While Bitcoin (BTC) is the original coin, many feel that ‘upgrades’ to the protocol over the years have resulted in it resembling an entirely different protocol than initially intended by Satoshi. In an attempt to recapture the original vision of the Bitcoin whitepaper, Bitcoin SV was created through a hard fork of Bitcoin Cash in late 2018. Craig Wright While the news discussed here today is a definite positive development for Bitcoin SV, the protocol has been a point of contention in the eyes of many lately. This is due to claims being made by Craig Wright. These claims are that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, and that he developed the original Bitcoin protocol. While this claim may eventually be proven true, much of the blockchain industry remains skeptical. In Other News While Ethereum has gotten the lion’s share of attention thus far, with regards to digital securities, it is not the only protocol to be used. As demonstrated here today, Bitcoin SV represents one of various networks that companies has chosen in recent months to develop their tokenization services on. Below are a few articles detailing events on various protocols.

How Seamless Crypto Swaps Could Facilitate the Mass-Market Adoption of Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency is heading into its second decade now after Bitcoin made its debut in 2009. In the last 10 years, Bitcoin and its underlying Blockchain technology have triggered a disruption of epic proportions across the global financial services industry. Despite the potential of cryptocurrencies to replace (or at the very least, coexist with) fiat currencies as a means of transferring value, cryptocurrencies are still seen as speculative assets. In fact, the bulk of cryptocurrency users are mostly tech enthusiasts, curious explorers, and risk-tolerant investors. However, for cryptocurrency to take its please as an acceptable means of exchange, it must unlock mass-market adoption. ChangeNOW, a Binance Launchpad alumni has built a non-custodial service aimed as simple and fast cryptocurrency exchange for everyday usage. ChangeNow’s service is a true “exchange” service that provides users with an opportunity to swap any cryptocurrency into another cryptocurrency without going through the conventional trading route offered on most traditional exchanges. ChangeNOW allows people to swap more than 170 tokens for exchange, it doesn’t impose any limits and you can swap as much cryptocurrencies as you want. The best part is that ChangeNOW doesn’t require any sort of signup, account creation or registration before you can use its service. Atomic Wallet provides a similar service that allows it users to exchange their assets via non-custodial Atomic Swap over a decentralized order book. Atomic swaps are inherently peer-to-peer and require that at least two parties who own different coins and agree to exchange those coins without the intermediary of a third party. This piece provides insight into 3 ways through which crypto swaps could facilitate mass-market usage cryptocurrencies by engendering increased liquidity, simplicity, and trust. 1. Increased liquidity Cryptocurrencies are finding it hard to breakout into the mass-market because of a structural lack of liquidity across board. To begin with, there are more than 2,160 different cryptocurrencies, coins, and tokens in the market. Some of them are built on the same blockchain while others are built on different blockchains. The decentralized individual nature of many coins creates a siloed environment where it is somewhat difficult to trade any random token for another random token even when they are built on the same blockchain. In fact, many of the most popular exchanges only allow trading against 3 major pairs of BTC, ETH, XRP. Hence, most of the funds in the market are held in the top coins while many new projects that could take cryptocurrency to the lack mass market suffer from a fundamental chicken and egg problem. Bitcoin still has more than 58% dominance of the market capitalization of the entire cryptocurrency market, Ethereum has a market dominance of 10.88%, and Ripple (XRP) has a market dominance of about 6.83%. Cryptocurrency swaps that allows you to exchange any random token for another random token without pandering to the market capitalization, volumes, and market dominance of such tokens will unleash a new era of liquidity in the market. The increased liquidity could potentially attract more funds into the market while breaking down the market dominance of some coins to create for a truly fair ecosystem where any one coin can’t determine the fate of the whole market. In addition, many Blockchain projects that have been struggling in relative obscurity would start seeing increased interest from the market once investors are confident that they can easily swap the tokens for another preferred token whenever they want to exit. 2. Cheaper trading Cryptocurrency swaps will ensure that any cryptocurrency tokens or assets can be interchangeable with another asset in real time in a seamless process. The runoff effect of such seamless cryptocurrency swap is that it unlocks cheaper trading options for market participants. Seamless cryptocurrency swapping eliminates the need to conduct trading transaction on custodial exchanges especially for trades that are not motivated by a need to make profits. Without the need for a custodial service when swapping cryptocurrencies, users won’t need to pay deposit fees or withdrawal fees because they won’t be depositing or withdrawing their tokens. Of course, people swapping cryptocurrencies would still need to pay on-chain transaction fees and a facilitation rate might be baked into the trade, but traders will definitely benefit from an absence of taker, maker, deposit and withdrawal fees. 3. Improved security and trust Cryptocurrency exchanges tend to be magnets for hacks, security breaches, and heists. Hackers have been exploiting vulnerabilities in cryptocurrency exchanges from as far back as 2011 in the infamous Mt.Gox hack. However,  2018 was a record breaking year in the annals of hacks on crypto exchanges in terms of the number of attempted and successful hacks, amount of assets that were stolen and the largest crypto hack of all time. The Coincheck exchange hack that happened in January 2018 saw about 500 million NEM tokens stolen from the exchange’s digital wallets. Cryptocurrency exchanges that facilitate crypto swaps can essentially run a non-custodial service that doesn’t run the risk of being a subject of a hack or heist. An increase in the number of cryptocurrency exchanges offering crypto swaps would reduce the need for exchanges to hold user funds in custody and thereby reducing the incentive for criminals to hack such exchanges. Demotivating criminals to hack exchanges could then reduce the instances of security breaches in the crypto market. Fewer instances of security breaches would in turn engender trust and confidence and make it easier for other people on the sidelines to join the cryptocurrency market.

Bitcoin Cash Devs Publish the First 3 of 3 Multi-Sig Schnorr Transaction

On May 15, the Bitcoin Cash network successfully upgraded by implementing Schnorr signatures, after which a few developers processed some basic Schnorr signatures. Then, on Saturday, May 18, software developers Chris Pacia, Mark Lundeberg, and Checksum0 performed the first multi-sig Schnorr signature on BCH and sent the funds to Also Read: After Trillions Printed Under QE, Politicians Now Say Deficits Don’t Matter A Multi-Sig Schnorr Transaction With a P2PKH Output This weekend, Openbazaar and Bchd full node developer Chris Pacia announced the first 3 of 3 multi-signature in a Pays To PubKey Hash (P2PKH) output. Developers Checksum0 and Mark Lundeberg helped process the transaction and the funds were sent to the Ross Ulbricht defense fund. “Mark Lundeberg, Chris Pacia and I made the first Schnorr multi-signature in history — The transaction is a donation to Free Ross — Proof will be published shortly,” explained Checksum before the transaction confirmed. Then, sure enough, the multi-sig transaction published to the chain and contained an opreturn message which read: BCH is about giving people the freedom to make their own choices, to pursue their own happiness, however they individually see fit. Privacy-Enhancing Transactions As of block 582680, the BCH chain had implemented the new Schnorr signature features, bringing the very basics of Schnorr to the table. With the help of another future Schnorr related upgrade, BCH developers will be able to implement public signature aggregation and complex sign-to-contract concepts. Public signature aggregation could bolster scaling immensely and more trivial smart contract ideas like Graftroot and Taproot could increase BCH privacy a great deal. However, there are still pretty cool applications that can happen today like hidden payment channels and atomic swaps. This includes the 3 of 3 multi-signature P2PKH output performed by the three developers. In another instance, Mark Lundeberg showed a Schnorr signature transaction on Twitter that highlighted Schnorr’s privacy-enhancing attributes. “A Schnorr-signed transaction — Was it a secret payment channel closure?” Lundeberg asked on Twitter. “Did hundred parties sign to make it happen? Did a secret atomic swap occur? Or did I just send coins to myself in a boring txn? You will never find out.” The multi-sig transaction. The BCH community was thrilled to hear the news about the Schnorr multi-sig transaction sent to Well-known BCH proponent Emergent Reasons said: “More privacy for the win — Nice one.” “I thank BCH for taking steps to restore my individual economic liberty and financial privacy,” another supporter remarked. It’s only been four days and developers have already processed basic Schnorr sigs and the 3 of 3 multi-sig transaction as well. BCH developers will be testing a few different types of Schnorr signatures coupled with other mechanisms in future to further private transactions and create unique transaction types.

These 13 Bitcoin Lightning Network Upgrades Will Solve Its ‘Biggest’ Hurdles

The Bitcoin Lightning Network will overcome some of its “biggest hurdles to use” in the near future as new features roll out from developers. From Experiment To Bitcoin Killer App That was according to Guy Swann, the presenter of the Cryptoconomy podcast, who this week dedicated two episodes to introducing Lightning and analyzing its upcoming changes. As Bitcoinist has frequently reported over the past year, Lightning represents the ‘next level’ of payments using Bitcoin, and is widely considered to be the way in which the largest cryptocurrency will scale up to meet the needs of billions of future users. Readers can find more information on the protocol, which debuted on the Bitcoin mainnet at the start of 2018, here. Looking forward, Swann presented a list of no fewer than thirteen upcoming improvements to Lightning which he says will boost its mainstream appeal. The basis for the list came from a blog post by Bitcoin business Bitrefill, which offers a range of products and services payable using Lightning. Top on the list for Swann was Atomic Multipath Payments (AMPs) – or breaking a single payment down into several smaller ones, and sending them over multiple Lightning channels. “Payments become much more reliable, no longer limited to 1 channel capacity,” he summarized. [AMP] Removes the biggest (in my opinion) hurdles to payment issues, single channel capacity & liquidity. Swann is by no means alone in being concerned about those aspects of using the network. As Bitcoinist reported last year, despite its rapid growth, the vast majority of Lightning payments worth more than several US cents failed. Not Just Lightning Atomic Swaps Due mostly to its age, Lightning remains a highly-technical tool which lacks a user-friendly interface. Developers are still working on making its base layer suitably robust, themselves stressing the fledgling ecosystem is still an experiment. Activity is gathering pace, however, and soon for example, Lightning will offer not just major efficiency gains for Bitcoin users, but those of other coins at the same time – via Atomic Swaps. “Channels don’t have to only send (Bitcoin). Any blockchain… with (Lightning) can connect payments across blockchains. Useful for decentralized swapping of coins, & sending bitcoins to pay invoices in multiple cryptocurrencies,” Swann explained. Other improvements focus on more specific weak areas in the current Lightning setup. The full list is as follows: Atomic Multipath Payments (AMPs) Atomic Swaps Channel Factories Dual-Funded Channels Eltoo Neutrino Rendezvous Routing Sphinx Splicing Submarine Swaps Trampoline Payments Turbo Channels Watchtowers As Bitcoinist reported, despite its technical level, Lightning gained significant publicity in 2019 thanks mainly to a public outreach project by Bitcoin user Hodlonaut. A form of transaction relay, the project, Lightning Torch, raised money for the plight of Venezuela’s citizens using Bitcoin, ultimately seeing participation from well-known figures both within and outside the cryptocurrency industry. What do you think about the Lightning Network? Let us know in the comments below!

Blockstream to Add Support for Digital Securities on Liquid Security Platform

Blockstream Liquid Security Platform In a move straying from the norm, Blockstream has announced their decision to launch a securities platform on the Bitcoin blockchain. More specifically, this endeavour will make use of sidechains. While the Liquid platform launched with support for cryptocurrencies in late 2018, this expansion marks the inclusion and support for digital securities. Blockstream has noted various benefits offered by their platform. Streamlined Development Due to the use of a single blockchain for all assets, time needing to integrate various APIs, coding, etc. is saved Secure Trading Through the use of atomic swaps, users can eliminate middle men in transactions – thereby reducing the amount of time assets are in the control of others. Fast Transfers Fund transfers between accounts are offered at high speeds, in a private nature Issued Assets Liquid allows for basically any real world asset to undergo tokenization and be traded. Sidechains Although Bitcoin is still fighting for mainstream adoption, those involved in the world of blockchain are always looking toward the future. With this being the case, many have viewed Bitcoin as being outdated, despite barely getting off the ground. Many view the use of sidechains as the remedy to this notion. A sidechain allows for a federated community to be implemented over the Bitcoin network by creating branches off of the main chain. These branches, or ‘sidechains’, remain anchored to the main chain, however allow for a high level of customization to be imbued. Various companies utilize Bitcoin sidechains, such as Blockstream and the popular Texas based, Factom. Commentary Upon release of the news, Blockstream’s Chief Security Officer, Samson Mow, took the time to comment.  He stated, “Businesses around the world are racing to take advantage of the tokenisation of securities…Unfortunately, blockchain platforms like Ethereum are failing them due to issues with scaling, privacy, and reliability. Liquid was built to address these issues. Now, with the launch of Liquid Securities, businesses can quickly issue Liquid-based security tokens with the click of a button, and establish sophisticated rulesets to conform with their regulatory requirements with no engineering experience required.” Blockstream Blockstream is a Canadian company which is headquartered in Victoria, British Columbia. Launched in 2014, Blockstream specializes in blockchain technologies, with a stated goal of developing ‘financial infrastructure of the future’. Company operations are overseen by CEO and Cofounder, Dr. Adam Back.

Digital tokens resurrect with value addition after crypto winter

According to OnChainFX, the top 1o legitimate exchanges deliver the trading volume for measuring the real trading volume of the digital assets. Data collected from the LONG HASH website revealed that the majority of tokens had declined to half of their value since attaining the ATH. The most shocking results came out for ETHLend, based on the Ethereum blockchain that used the digital tokens in the form of collateral for transactions. LONG HASH quoted that ETHLend offered a decentralized peer-to-peer smart contract lending in the crypto-ecosystem. The ETH-based token was trending as the investors were constantly using ETH for transactions, which led to its surge before the bear attacks on the market. Tokens such as Holo and Ravencoin maintained their value equivalent to 50% of their ATH as they were initiated after the 2017 bull run. It came as a surprise for crypto users after tokens like Binance Coin and ChainLink underwent resurgence to achieve their ATH, that was higher than the previous ATH mark. Source: LONG HASH As per the graph, tokens achieved their ATHs from December 2017 to January 2018 and then plummeted. Many of the investors missed out on this bull rush in the crypto market. As the market conditions did not remain the same for a longer duration, tokens slipped into the phase, commonly known as the crypto winter, among the digital asset enthusiasts. LONG HASH shared growth rate of ChainLink and tweeted, “Chainlink (LINK) is having a pretty good day”. Some tokens like BNB and LINK have been performing well and the community can take comfort from this.
