In the latest cryptocurrency news, the crypto giant Circle announced the addition of four new digital assets (altcoins) into the Circle Invest platform. With this, it brought the total number of listed cryptocurrencies to 11.
As Circle officially announced in a blog post, the new additions include EOS, Stellar, 0x and Qtum, On top of this, the giant revealed that the four assets can be purchased through the Circle Invest platform either in an individual way or as part of a basket through the “Buy the Market” retail portfolio investment feature.
According to the blog post, the four crypto assets are chosen for listing based on their suitability which was determined by the Circle Asset Framework. Each asset will be evaluated based on its own strengths, and under no circumstances are any fees to aid listing. This will help to ensure the integrity of the process and gives its customers confidence that only the best assets are listed on the Circle platform.
While many are asking themselves why these altcoins were specifically chosen for the listing, the blog post mentiones that EOS promises to improve on the Ethereum framework, Stellar offers a low cost and high-speed payments solution, 0x creates a peer-to-peer crypto trading framework while Qtum offers users the best of both Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The four new assets follow the previous addition of two altcoins, Zcash and Monero, which Circle listed in May this year.
Analyst Rips Libra Saying It’s The Worst Product In The World Ever
JPMorgan Chief Throws Massive Shade On Facebook’s Libra
“To put it in perspective, we’ve been talking about blockchain for seven years and very little has happened. We’re going to be talking about Libra three years from now. I wouldn’t spend too much time on it.”It might be worth taking the word of the JPMorgan Chief with a little bit of doubt. After all, JPMorgan is launching its own cryptocurrency so the bank aims to deploy the asset which is the JPM Coin on a privately managed Ethereum-based blockchain. While Dimon’s comment that ‘’we’ve been talking about blockchain for seven years and very little has happened’’ it is true that as far as the adoption is concerned it is still tempting to see a subtle blow at Bitcoin like this one. As noted in the altcoin news previously, the major cryptocurrency experienced massive growth over the seven-year period and overall in its decade-long lifespan. When it comes to it price, in 2012 it was below $15 and now it is reaching new high levels every day. At Least, Dimon does not believe anymore that Bitcoin is an outright scam as he did a while ago. He noted that cryptocurrencies are a scam and are not good security-wise and many people will lose their investments.
Former Congressman Ron Paul Says He Is In Favor Of Cryptocurrencies
“… I’m for the least amount of regulation. I don’t know what’s gonna happen to cryptocurrencies. I think it’s a great idea. And I only have one rule: no fraud … I think that the government has a role. And [if] somebody has a case that there is fraud, I think it should be investigated ... What I want to do is legalize the freedom of choice, absent blatant fraud.”Ron Paul also addressed Bitcoin and its common comparison to the traditional asset gold. One way in which Paul appears to think that gold is similar to crypto is that both are assets that compete with fiat money. As the former congressman said, “governments aren’t very tolerant of competition, and they’re not even tolerant with using the Constitution to compete with the fiat dollar. Because gold and silver, you can’t use it.” Ron Paul has previously discussed his bullish views on cryptocurrency in general - which is how he got featured in the Bitcoin and altcoin news sections. In 2014, the former congressman expressed concerns about the backing of Bitcoin (BTC) and crypto in general. However, over time he adopted a pro-crypto attitude that is bearish on fiat money in the long run.
“I just don’t think the dollar is going to last. I don’t think any fiat currency lasts forever. They all self-destruct. Right now, the world is engulfed with fiat currency; they’re all paper currencies. That’s one of the other reasons the dollar holds up: What are you competing against, the euro and the yen? The competition out there isn’t any good,” the former congressman said.Currently, the price of Bitcoin sits still below $10,800 and is stagnant against the $11,000 mark - which is seen as a major psychological level as many best cryptocurrency news sites report.
Iran Revealed The Plan Of Launching Its Own Gold-Backed Cryptocurrency
“The Iranian cryptocurrency is backed by gold but its function is similar to foreign rivals. The domestically encrypted money is to ease optimal use of Iranian banks’ frozen resources.”Iran revealed the plan but it still far from clear. The multiple authorities in the different agencies issued contradictory statements so they seem confused and uncertain how to approach the new crypto currency and how to regulate it as the financial authorities in the United States do. The FANAP CEO urged the government to continue with the clampdown on bitcoin in the country since the authorities seized more than 1,000 bitcoin mining rigs in the Yazd province. The Iranian government could lose the battle against bitcoin mining in the country since the petrol nation is a paradise for those who make good money out of it mainly because of the low electricity costs. As of this year, more than 70 percent of the central banks around the world started working on digital currency and Iran’s central bank joined in. In Venezuela, President Maduro launched a state-backed cryptocurrency by oil in 2018 and he later ordered the central bank of the country open trading desks for the Petro cryptocurrency. Singapore’s bank didn’t launch a full-blown cryptocurrency but did however issue tokens of its national fiat currency which is based on the Ethereum private blockchain as noted in the latest cryptocurrency news before.
