MT5 to bitmex bybit binance kucoin binanceDEX and more

I was wondering how many traders are interested in a bridge from mt5 to crypto exchanges because I have spent several months developing a bridge for myself to trade manually on mt5 and also use any MT5 bot to send the trades to any crypto exchange that I want. If there is an interest I can share the libraries on github. ​ The main reason why I was interested in building this project was that mt5 has a lot of trading tools and is an easy platform to host for algorithmic trading.

KuCoin’s derivatives platform launching bitcoin monthly futures in ‘few weeks’

Cryptocurrency exchange KuCoin’s derivatives platform, KuMEX, is going to launch bitcoin monthly futures contracts in a “few weeks.” Michael Gan, founder and CEO of KuCoin, announced the news at the Blockchain Life 2019 Forum in Moscow, Russia, according to a press release shared with The Block on Wednesday. IDG Capital-backed KuCoin launched KuMEX in July, and already offers a bitcoin perpetual contract (XBTUSDM), which is quoted in U.S. dollars and offers up to 20 times leverage. Gan said at the forum that the low penetration rate of derivatives in the cryptocurrency space is because major exchanges such as OKEx and Huobi often set certain investment thresholds. For instance, the two exchanges’ minimal BTC contract value is $100. However, to increase retail participation, the limit has to be reduced and that’s why KuMEX’s XBTUSDM contract value is $1, he said. KuMEX platform currently supports English, simplified Chinese and Russian languages. Gan further said that the platform will support more languages, such as Vietnamese and Turkish, later this year.

Crypto Adoption: Royal Bank of Canada Might Soon Launch A Crypto Trading Platform

Canada’s largest bank, The Royal Bank of Canada having over $965 billion in total assets could soon launch a crypto trading platform. Will RBC Soon offer Crypto Accounts? As per reports, by leading media, The Logic, RBC has applied for four patents in Canada and the US – a hint enough to decude that the bank might integrate cryptos into its operations. When questioned RBC spokesperson Jean Francois Thibault told  The Logic that similar to other organizations, patent applications, and concepts are protected and declined to comment on the platform launch. “To individual users, managing cryptographic keys and transacting with different cryptographic assets can be a challenge. In some situations, cryptographic asset transactions may take time to be confirmed, and/or may not be compatible or supported by merchant systems or point-of-sale devices,” reads the patent. The report further mentions that the bank could offer its customers cryptocurrency accounts. As a matter of fact, RBC has published a minimum of 27-blockchain-related patents in the past three years. These include credit scores, vehicle records, digital rewards and loan offerings. Rising Crypto & Blockchain Adoption in Canada A study by Bank of Canada in early October revealed that 5% of Canadians own bitcoin. Furthermore, the nation has been well-positioned in attracting mining businesses due to its colder climate and low energy costs. Not only is the national interest in cryptocurrencies rising, a survey by Deloitte in 2018 revealed that fifty-one percent of Canadian companies were investing in blockchain. Yesterday, Canada launched its second stablecoin, CUSD. Interestingly, the stablecoin is backed by the US Dollar and not the Canadian Dollar. CUSD similar to its forerunner CADT, (backed by the Canadian Dollar) has been developed by Blockchain Venture Captial Inc., a Canadian blockchain-based company. Will Royal Bank of Canada roll out its own crypto exchange?

Celebrity-Founded Pac Token IEO Campaign To Launch On GCOX

The Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) of a celebrity coin called PAC Token (PAC) has gained the attention of the crypto community. However, this is a token for a “select few” due to the distribution strategy that has been put in place. It is an IEO where a first-come-first-served basis will not apply, but rather, an electronic ballot system will determine who gets the coin. What’s more, PAC is backed by a celebrity, and given how past cryptocurrency ventures launched by stars ended in shambles, a lot of fingers are crossed. Will PAC be a huge success and possibly the next big thing? Or will it like others before its time leave investors holding a bag of worthless tokens? Who knows! What is Pac Token? PAC Token (PAC) is an ERC-20 token that rides on the popularity of Manny Pacquiao, a Senator in the Philippines, and a professional boxer. The cryptocurrency was launched on September 1, 2019, at “A Concert For Champions” held in Manila, Philippines. These tokens are aimed at bringing the Filipino boxer closer to his fans by giving his sizable followers access to fan-celebrity programs powered by Singapore’s GCOX exchange. In the same vein, fans can connect with the pro-fighter on social media. The crypto asset can also be used to redeem products such as Pacquiao’s autographed glove or exclusive VIP box seats at boxing matches. It can be donated to Pacquiao to support his cause. On the other hand, England soccer star Michael Owen and Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed al-Nahyan, a member of Abu Dhabi’s ruling family, are reportedly private investors of PAC. Who is Manny Pacquiao? Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao, popularly known as Manny Pacquiao, is a man of many interests. He is a politician who has been a serving Senator in the Philippines since 2016. Likewise, the 40-year-old is a renowned boxer who has several accolades to his name. According to Wikipedia, he is “one of the greatest professional boxers of all time.” The Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) also named Pacquiao, “Fighter of the Decade 2000”. Forbes, on the other hand, ranked him as the second-highest-paid athlete in the world as of 2015. Despite Pacquiao’s interest in politics and sports, he is now dabbling with blockchain technology, which has led to the launch of his cryptocurrency, Pac Token. Pac Token IEO Campaign on GCOX Exchange The Pac Token (PAC) will be distributed in an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO), instead of an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) since it is offered through an exchange. PAC’s IEO has been scheduled to take place on GCOX Sparkle, the IEO platform on GCOX (Global Crypto Offering Exchange). The IEO will start on November 12, 2019, at 9 pm (GMT+8), to end on November 14, 2019. Three rounds of sales have been slated, and each round will last for three hours. Also, 700,000 PAC tokens will be offered, and each token will cost $0.30 USD. Token Balloting System to Aid in Acquiring PAC During IEO The fact that a renowned celebrity backs PAC has earned it much attention, which means there will be more people willing to buy despite the fact that there are just a few tokens to go round. A system has, therefore, been devised to allocate tokens during the campaign. That being the case, it won’t be on a first-come, first-served basis. Instead, GCOX has chosen to use a Token Balloting system to determine who can acquire PAC during then IEO. According to the exchange, each account on the GCOX Sparkle is limited to one subscription as well as a minimum and maximum subscription amount of $30 and $1,200, respectively. At the completion of the IEO, an electronic ballot will allocate tokens to individuals. However, these tokens will be credited to the wallets of participants on November 19, 2019, by 6 pm (GMT+8). Deducing from this logic, not very many people are going to get their hands on this token, given the policy that has been put in place. Nonetheless, it may increase the token’s demand from Pacquiao’s fan base and potentially impact on its price positively. About GCOX GCOX is a decentralized exchange owned by GCOX Group, a group of companies in different industries, including entertainment, finance, and technology. The exchange was founded in 2017, and it became the first cryptocurrency exchange to collaborate with LaLiga, a Spanish football division. GCOX is focused on promoting celebrities and brands using its ACCLAIM blockchain. Stars can develop their popularity, raise funds, etc. using GCOX. As such, it does not come as a surprise that this exchange is chosen for the PAC IEO. However, PAC will be the first celebrity token IEO to launch on the GCOX Sparkle platform. Other celebrities like American singer Jason Derulo, Tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki, and English soccer star Michael Owen are rumored to plan to launch their crypto tokens on GCOX soon. Conclusion PAC Token is the first celebrity coin to go on sale on the GCOX cryptocurrency exchange. It is backed by Manny Pacquiao, a politician, and boxer who has garnered a sizable number of fans that can increase PAC’s demand. And despite the failed attempts of other crypto ventures by celebrities, PAC Token is likely to come out strong.

Chinese E-Commerce Giant Alibaba Offers Free Bitcoin to US Shoppers

Yes, you did read that right. The company that refused to let its Chinese users buy bitcoin with Alipay has now teamed up with a New York-based BTC app to offer it for free on ‘Singles Day’. Get Free Bitcoin on Singles Day As part of a drive to motivate shoppers on China’s ‘Singles Day’ yesterday, e-commerce giant Alibaba has partnered will the bitcoin shopping app, Lolli. The unofficial holiday which falls on 11/11 is the Chinese equivalent of America’s Black Friday. According to a company blog post Lolli users were able to earn 5% in bitcoin when they shop with partner Alibaba. The day is massively popular in China where its burgeoning younger generation and nouveau riche want to splash the cash to celebrate their solo status. Lolli’s partnership with Alibaba, which recently warned against crypto payments in China, would allow US-based users who purchase on the Chinese platform to earn a cut in BTC. CEO and co-founder of Lolli, Alex Adelman, stated; “I’m excited to partner with Alibaba on Singles Day and offer the opportunity to earn bitcoin back to its shoppers. This is a milestone partnership for Lolli as Alibaba is the largest retailer and e-commerce company in the world, launching on Single’s Day, the world’s largest shopping day of the year.” The app works through a browser extension that notifies users when they’re browsing a partner’s online retail outlet. Lolli works with over 500 partners including big names such as Walmart, Groupon, Toms, Hilton, GAP, and Hotels.com. The official website claims that they are ‘on a mission to spread bitcoin to billions of people all around the world with the click of a button.’ Records Smashed in Shopping Frenzy It is clear that Chinese and US-based platforms are trying to capitalize on one of the biggest shopping days in the year. According to CNBC Alibaba broke the Singles Day record with more than $38 billion in sales yesterday. At the end of the 24-hour event, the gross merchandise value stood at 268.4 billion yuan, just under a 26% rise from the figure posted last year. Alibaba offered huge discounts on its global outlets but naturally, shoppers in China were not entitled to earn any bitcoin, even though state media has been trying to educate them on it. Smartphones from Apple and Huawei were some of the top-selling items as online personalities took to the stage to tout their brands. There was a concern in China that sentiment for US brands may have fallen following the ongoing trade war but this was clearly not the case. Maybe free bitcoin for Chinese users would have resulted in an even larger profit margin for Alibaba. Did you go shopping on Singles Day? Add your comments below.
