BNB Coin Could Drop Tomorrow: Binance Starts Restricting US Traders

Published

on

BNB coin could drop tomorrow since the major crypto exchange will stop the US traders from using their services from tomorrow as per the reports in the latest cryptocurrency news.

A few months ago, the leading crypto exchange Binance announced that it would stop the US traders from accessing the platform and that the new rule will come into effect on September 12th. The traders and analysts are now worried that the BNB coin could drop when this happens. Back on June 14th, the reports showed that the world’s major crypto exchange will be halting the access to the traders from the United States. The US traders will still have access to their wallets and all of their funds but they will no longer be able to deposit or to trade on the platform.

One of the main reasons for their decision is to guarantee full regulatory compliance. Binance was able to quickly act and create another alternative for the traders who want to continue using the platform. They also created the so-called Binance US and according to the CEO of the company Changpeng Zhao, the newest platform will supposedly increase the same speed as well as the same liquidity as the original platform. It is also very important to notice that recently the major crypto exchange partnered with Paxos in order to launch the USD-pegged stablecoin named Binance USD or BUSD. The news that the main platform of the binance exchange won’t let the US traders use the services, will not influence the Binance Coin very well. Back in June, the price of the BNB coin dropped at about 7 percent when the news first emerged. It all went downhill from there and as seen in the charts, BNB is down by more than 45 percent. It also appears that nothing that the exchange is currently doing is good enough to bring the price up.

As per the reports in the altcoin news, the entire situation got even worse when the coin is compared against Bitcoin. In the same period, the BNB coin decreased by more than 52 percent against bitcoin. Now that the trading of the US citizens will be stopped, the real question is if that will be even worse for the cryptocurrency and will it lead to a huge drop in value.

OKEx Korea Delisted Monero, Dash, And Other Privacy-Cryptos Over FATF Demands

Published

By

OKEx Korea
The latest cryptocurrency news show that the South Korean arm of the cryptocurrency exchange OKEx has decided to remove support for five major altcoins. It is true that OKEx Korea delisted Monero, Dash and other coins due to new international regulations. As a blog post originally published on September 10 shows, OKEx Korea confirmed that it would halt trading of Monero (XMR), Dash (DASH), Zcash (ZEC), Horizen (ZEN) and Super Bitcoin (SBTC) on October 10. As the exchange revealed, the main reason for this is that as since they are focused on privacy, the coins fall foul of the new guidelines set out by the intergovernmental body which is the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). OKEx Korea delisted these altcoins, the blog post confirms, showing:
“Support for trading of 5 different cryptocurrencies, XMR, DASH, ZEC, ZEN, SBTC, will be terminated.”
As the news site reported, the sweeping changes to crypto transaction rules currently demand businesses to identify the two parties which are sending funds to each other - if a transaction exceeds the limit of $1,000.
"According to the statement corresponding to FATF R.16, OKEx Korea has restricted its implementation as the ' travel rule' recommends that exchanges be able to collect relevant information such as the name and address of the sender and recipient of the virtual asset. privacy-oriented cryptocurrency, aka that ' the dark Coin "has decided to take the deal end-of-support measures of the corresponding event," the blog post showing that OKEx delisted the five altcoins shows.
This comes in period when more than 200 countries are forced to theoretically implement the rules by June 2020. Still, the altcoin news show that there are concerns that doing so is physically impossible for a lot of decentralized blockchains. Now that OKEx Korea delisted the five cryptocurrencies, all of them make it possible to identify the sender and recipient of a transaction by design. An OKEx representative was also featured on many best cryptocurrency news sites a while ago, telling that the coins will only be delisted on OKEx Korea (OKEx.com.kr) but will remain listed on the global OKEx platform. The value of these coins, as the coming altcoin news show, has remained unchanged.

Ripple Is Selling XRP At Discount To Institutional Buyers

ripple is selling xrp
The CEO of Ripple is selling XRP to some institutional buyers at major discounts, reports in the latest cryptocurrency news show. We are talking about Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of the California-based blockchain startup, who recently confirmed that XRP is sold at discount for some of its clients. Garlinghouse was in the altcoin news after his interview with CNN, when he was asked at what price does the Ripple sell XRP to financial institutions which they are dealing with - and whether the startup gives these institutions discounts and if there is any lockup. The CEO noted that there are times when Ripple is working with financial institutions which want to buy a large amount of XRP. He said that Ripple is selling XRP to them but also that they are careful about any potential lockups which may prevent them from dumping it on the market.
“We would hypothetically have restrictions about what they can sell and how often, and usually those are based upon volume in the market,” Garlinghouse noted.
He also talked about the price at which XRP is sold, being featured in the coming altcoin news for his unique response to the interviewer's question:
CNN asked "So you might give them it slightly cheaper but you say to them, ‘hey, you’re not allowed to sell it for six months, let’s say, or a year’,” on which the CEO of ripple replied “Correct, that’s basically correct,” even though the rest of his statement was cut off.
Also, the CNN interviewer asked Garlinghouse about the proportion of ownership that Ripple has currently, as well as its amount of power and ability to control the price. The CEO replied that Ripple is still the largest owner in the XRP community and that they would never dump XRP which would go "against their best interest." Garlinghouse also said that the team has "taken steps to lock up most of the XRP we own in escrow, so that we can’t touch it.” https://twitter.com/jchatterleyCNN/status/1172151590763016193 What's also interesting is the fact that in August, the CEO of Ripple has confirmed that Ripple hasn't increased - but instead decreased its sales by volume Q/Q and since then, the inflation rate of XRP and the circulating supply has been lower than the one of BTC and ETH. In value, sales for Ripple increased by 48% which is probably another reason why Ripple is selling XRP with a discounts - to trigger further growth. In either case, the company confirmed that it "plans to take a more conservative approach to XRP sales" in Q3 this year. The interview was featured on many best cryptocurrency news sites.

Square Cash App Is Testing A New Stock Trading Feature: Report

Published

By

Square Cash App
The Square Cash App is all over the latest cryptocurrency news for apparently testing a new feature which will allow customers to buy and sell stocks. According to Bloomberg's reports on September 12 which cite a source familiar with the matter, the San Francisco-based startup and its employees began testing the new feature in the recent weeks. Once the Square Cash App releases the new stock trading features, it will allow its users to make free stock trades. Praised on many best cryptocurrency news sites as a great feature, there is a lot of buzz around this - even though Square has reportedly not yet determined the date of the launch of this feature. For those of you who haven't been following our Bitcoin and altcoin news, Square made Bitcoin (BTC) deposits available on its Cash App in late June. At the time, the deposits were limited to $10,000 worth of BTC over the span of 7 days. Square Cash App was limited in terms of transfers too - it could take several hours for one to be confirmed on the blockchain. In July this year, the Square Cash App also announced a giveaway of $50,000 worth of BTC following the growth of its stock price. At the time, the stock of Square was up about 56% in 2019, after starting the year at $57.2 and trading at $81.8 at the time as MarketWatch data showed. The founder of Square Cash App and Square as a company, Jack Dorsey, is also the creator of the social media giant Twitter. Earlier this year, he was putting together a team of dedicated experts committed to improving the crypto infrastructure in general. Back then, he commented on the advantages for Square too, stating:
“Just from a business perspective, we don’t look like an Internet company today. An Internet company can launch something and it’s available around the world. Whereas with payments, you have to go to each market and pay attention to regulators. You need a partnership with a local bank. This is a very slow process in any new market.”
The new announcement about stock trading features on the Square Cash App has been well received by the crypto community.

Coinbase Pro Excludes UK And New York Traders After Adding Dash

Published

Coinbase Pro excludes the UK and New York traders from the trading launch after it made a new addition to the platform with Dash as we are about to read more in the coming altcoin news below. The exchange confirmed the addition of the DASH digital coin to its trading mix but the newest addition does not promise the launch on Coinbase. Usually, assets get added on the bigger platform once they start offering retail investors the chance to buy new coins. Coinbase Pro stated, however, that they will not offer the anonymous features of the coin which means that the unknown entities will not be able to deposit or make anonymous withdrawals. The deposits will be opened on Monday and the trading session will start in phases when Coinbase sees the first evidence of enough activity. DASH will be exchanged in pairs against BTC and USD. Dash is one of the oldest crypto coins on the market and it is relying on the proof-of-stake mining along with the Master Nodes for bigger security. The adoption of the cryptocurrency has been very slow which was not expected mainly because of the anonymity features of the coin. For that reason, Dash has been batched together with coins such as Zcash and Monero. The exchanges also are very cautious when listing Dash. Some of the Japanese operators even abandoned the coin months ago. CeX.io which is a London-based exchange delisted the cryptocurrency along with ZEC. Coinbase UK also abandoned ZEC after changing the banking partner. Although DASH is not among the top-five cons, it has maintained a steady price level. The token gained a little on Friday and reached a price of $86.76 which is an increase of more than 5 percent overnight. It was also one of the few digital coins that traded above $1,000 during the bull market in 2017. However, Coinbase PRO excludes the traders from New York and the UK for still uncertain reasons. The anonymous crypto project was first created in 2014 and it is still one of the few that offer a voting mechanism for improvements to its community. One of the biggest issues to its adoption is the high price of owning a masternode which as we reported back in the latest cryptocurrency news is about 1,000 DASH collateral.
