FO6E3842CAC44 - Turkish Bitcoin Exchange BTC Turk Becomes Football Club’s Sponsor

Turkish Bitcoin exchange BTC Turk is the first exchange in the country to have made a partnership with a football club as a new sponsor and we are reading in the coming altcoin news below.

As other blockchain news continues to make progress in the sporting arena, Yeni Malatyaspor is the latest of the clubs to have made a new partnership with a bitcoin exchange. As revealed on Reddit the Turkish Bitcoin exchange signed the sponsorship contract with the club that will feature the logo on the team kit for the next season. Last week as well, the English premier league champions Manchester City unveiled their own blockchain partnership. The move by Yeni Malatyaspor suggests that the high-profile teams even not involved with football, are realizing that the benefits are of cryptocurrencies are far greater. The sponsorship is the first of this kind between a bitcoin exchange and a professional sports club.

Another Reddit user also confirmed there was a collaboration after spotting the BTC Turk banner at the Sunday’s game between Yeni Malatyaspor and Alanyaspor. The deal will boost the BTCTurk and Bitcoin presence as football is a sport that is the most popular sport in the country. The BTC Turk CEO Ozgur Guneri had the next thing to say:

 “And now, we are excited to make another breakthrough in our country and in the world, bringing Yeni Malatyaspor, one of the successful clubs in Turkey Super League and BtcTurk together. With this agreement, we have taken a significant step to increase awareness towards Bitcoin and contribute to the healthy growth of the cryptocurrency industry in Turkey as well.”

Bitcoin still remains a popular choice for the citizens of Turkey because of the number of negative factors affecting the local economy. The Geo-political situation and inflation rate which hovers around 17% is still driving the citizens into Bitcoin and other crypto-assets. The Turkish Lira has dropped again as the global financial crisis is going deeper and at one point the local currency lost more than half of its value. BTC Turk is well-positioned to help the citizens and the company became the first company to offer services with the Lira in the country as per the reports in the latest cryptocurrency news previously.

world's leading carmakers
The world’s leading carmakers will start a pilot program for blockchain-based projects which will serve for the future blockchain vehicle identification platform. As we are about to read in the blockchain news below, the new project could lead the drivers of electric vehicles to pay parking fees and maintenance fees including highway tolls much faster and more efficient without making use of cash or credit/debit cards.The pilot which will start in November in the United States will see Renault, General Motors, Honda, Ford and BMW utilizing sensor and card-free digital ID solutions via a blockchain platform. This platform will allow the parties to check on the data including the owners of the vehicles and the service history. The drivers will be able to use the huge range of services without stopping to pay for anything and will be charged for all expenditures when they plug their vehicles to fill the batteries. According to Nikkei, GM and Honda are also to join the World’s leading carmakers group that will work on the blockchain project by also working on a token reward system that will result in electric vehicle owners to be compensated in digital currency for feeding power into the public grids during an outage.As reported, the previously mentioned carmakers alongside blockchain partners from the industry launched the Mobility Open Blockchain initiative back in 2018. This initiative aims to explore the blockchain for use in a new digital mobility ecosystem that can make up for safer transportation and open access as they stated back then. The automakers are becoming heavily interested in all of the things the blockchain industry has to offer. Currently, Mercedes Benz and Daimler are exploring the idea of fitting vehicles with a digital wallet for cryptocurrencies. Simens on the other side is looking to implement blockchain-powered car-sharing solutions. Jaguar Land Rover partnered with the IoT-based crypto IOTA aiming to reward the drivers in crypto for allowing their cars to automatically report road condition information.The carmaker Hyundai also launched a cryptocurrency of its own via the European Subsidiary of Hdac blockchain business arm. Hdac announced that they will spend up to 10 million USD on blockchain-related business ventures and we can't wait to see what they plan in the next cryptocurrency news.

The South Korea blockchain ID service is expected to launch during the first half of 2020 for commercialized uses, the company noted.Founded in 2016, the fintech firm primarily designed an ID service that is based on blockchain technology for non-face-to-face openings of banking accounts, as the company revealed in June. The South Korean financial regulator which is the Financial Services Commission (FSC) included the firm and its 'my-ID' service in the "Innovative Financial Services and Regulations" Sandbox.
“The blockchain technology is evolving into practical applications such as decentralized ID services in line with the global trend giving users back the personal data sovereignty,” a KOTEC spokesperson recently said.
The cryptonews also show that the South Korean blockchain ID service ICONLOOP has another flagship product - the ICON public blockchain network which uses a loopchain protocol to connect different blockchains.

A 29-year old man from Singapore is now facing 34 years in prison after getting in illegal crypto mining by stealing Amazon AWS and Google Cloud computing power and services as we are about to find out more in the blockchain news below.Ho Jun Jia or better known as Matthew Ho was taken into the custody of the Singapore Police Force after being charged for illegal crypto mining under a 14-count indictment. According to the reports, he stole credit card and ID information from California residents, India and Texas to run a large-scale illegal crypto mining operation. The mining of the Ethereum and Bitcoin cryptocurrencies is noted as having taken place between 2017 and 2018. In an unsealed indictment document we can read that:
‘’Beginning in late 2017, which followed the surge in popularity of cryptocurrencies, Ho used victims’ personal and stolen credit card information, along with phony email addresses, which he created, designed to spoof the authentic email account of identity-theft victims, to open accounts and to obtain access to cloud computing services.’’
During the illegal crypto mining operation, he managed to steal up to $5 million in unpaid cloud computing bills and the department of justice issued a press release saying that for a brief period, Ho’s operation was one of the largest consumers of data usage by volume. The press release states that the wire fraud is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and the access device fraud is punishable by 10. The aggravated identity theft is punishable by mandatory two years in prison. According to the indictment, Ho made a few payments for goods and services on the victim’s stolen credit cards.At least 16 payments were made with varying amounts and they even reached about $240,000 on the only credit card. Some of the money went towards payments on Google Cloud Services and crypto mining expenses. In 2017, the press release shows that he made payments amounting up to $135,861 to a victim’s credit card toward the balance owed on the Amazon Web services account. What we can further learn from the statements in the altcoin news today is that with the illegal crypto mining operations, Ho sold and exchanged the goods on various sites even at localbitcoins.com in order to obtain fiat currency.
