Europe’s Oldest Bank To Offer Stellar-Based Tokenized Securities

Published

europe's oldest bank

Europe’s oldest bank based in Germany, Bank Von der Heydt, works on a special-purpose euro stablecoin that will be able to facilitate placements in tokenized securities and will use the help of Stellar as per the announcements that we have today in our Stellar lumens news.

The Munich-based bank which was established in 1754, probably Europe’s oldest bank, made the announcement back on Monday that it partnered with the financial services provider BitBond and will integrate the tokenization into its established securitization platform. The partnership will also allow the bank to tokenize digital securities on the Stellar blockchain which can offer a lot of advantages for the institutional clients via private placements.

Tokenization can simplify equity sales and can eliminate a lot of the associated frictional costs according to the bank. One of the bank representatives wrote on Monday:

‘’Tokenization can simplify equity sales and eliminate much of the associated frictional costs, according to the bank. “[S]ecurities can be traded directly without an intermediary, making financing much cheaper and less complicated.’’

There are no plans yet for the bank to enable wider public access to the platform. All of the clients will be able to securely store tokenized equity in a custody solution that is developed by BitBond and von der Heydt in 2019. The solution will get approval from the German financial regulator BaFin after the changes in the laws that are meant to provide a license to continue offering cryptocurrency custody. The investors will also be able to purchase tokenized equity by using the euro stablecoin with the help of Stellar that will also be issued by the bank. The Clients will be able to convert their euros into stablecoin which can also be stored in the custody solutions of the bank.

Radoslav Albrecht, who is a founder of Bitbond and CEO, explained:

“Digital euro payments will happen much faster, there will be a real-time, on-chain DvP (delivery versus payment of securities) and the bank doesn’t need to involve a third-party paying agent but can provide everything independently.”

BitBond received approval by BaFin for its tokenized bond back in January 2019, going on to launch Germany’s first regulated security token offering later in the year. It was established in 2013 and the company originally operated as a blockchain-based lending platform for smaller firms and raised $5 million in 2017 to finance these loans.

Stellar Lumens News: Can XLM Breach The $0.082 Level?

Published

on

By

stellar lumens news
The latest Stellar Lumens news show that the XLM coin has followed the market trend and made a bullish push, adding around 10.67% to its value over the last 24 hours. The current price of XLM right now lies in the $0.080 region which is good considering the fact that this price point matches its November levels. For those of you who don't follow our Stellar news, the current momentum for Stellar has been good and the cryptocurrency may soon cross its key resistance at $0.086. The XLM price was at $0.074299 at the beginning of the day and by 10:56 UTC, it managed to get elevated by 7.67% which added $0.05701 and placed its price at $0.080. The Stellar Lumens news showed that the cryptocurrency could not stay at this low for long and started gaining strength which is how it was brought to the new price mark. Right now, the Stellar Lumens news show that XLM is trading stably from the past few days and that it has formed a strong upside trend line on the intraday chart. The current value of XLM is trending above its 50 days MA at $0.081312 and the 20 days MA at $0.081681, surging by 1.12% and 0.67% respectively. The next halting point for Stellar's XLM cryptocurrency may come at $0.086 as many analysts noted. On the intraday level, however, investors may witness a few unprecedented price shifts. Even though the Stellar Lumens news were positive and now are negative as XLM corrects, the cryptocurrency saw a 4% price increase in one day of trading and jumped above the $0.080 level which was crucial for it. Right now, the price expansion in the past 30 days is at 61% as it currently sits in the 13th ranked position with a total market cap of $1.60 billion. The altcoin news also show that XLM is still a steep 90% lower from its previous all time high price. If the bulls break back above $0.083 and manage to crack the resistance at the bearish .382 retracement, higher resistance lies at $0.090 which is what many look forward to. Above this, additional resistance is found at $0.098, $0.10 and $0.109 which is the most optimistic scenario. On the other hand, if the Stellar Lumens news show that there is a push beneath the $0.078 support, additional support will be found at $0.075, $0.072, and $0.070 (all in the short term) and beneath this, another support at $0.065.
  • Support: $0.078, $0.075, $0.073, $0.070, $0.065, $0.060
  • Resistance: $0.083, $0.088, $0.090, $).098, $0.102, $0.109, $0.117, $0.120.

Stellar XLM Is Ready To Break Past Its Multi-Year Downtrend

Published

on

By

Stellar lumens news
Stellar XLM is ready to shoot up since some time ago it ended its downward trendline that held hostage is the price, not allowing it to advance for the past two years. Closing the week above this meaningful price hurdle could pose as a spark for a bull rally as we are reading more in the stellar latest news. On January the 4th of 2018, Stellar XLM is seemingly doing well as it achieved its all-time high of $0.98. Following the milestone, this digital asset entered a huge downtrend that caused its price to depreciate by 96%. The bear market that lasted for two years, resulted in XLM recently falling to the level of $0.042, which is a price level not experienced since the second half of November 2017. Since the peak at the start of 2018, Stellar Lumens has achieved a few lower highs that formed a downward trendline. This obstacle has been preventing XLM from freeing itself from its downtrend. But the price action this crypto experienced this week made it possible to move over this hurdle. According to Michaël van de Poppe, a full-time trader that is based in Netherland, Amsterdam, the breakthrough over the downtrend that lasted for two years can cause a parabolic advance. The technical analyst says that if the $0.053 support level manages to hold, this kind of big upward movement will be hugely probable. Michaël van de Poppe says that a spike in the buying pressure behind Stellar Lumens can be brought the opportunity for surging from the current price levels to the milestone of $0.09, $0.14, or $0.19. Poppe said:
“[Stellar Lumens] flipped the levels of $0.04 and $0.053 [into] support. [Now,] as long as $0.053 remains support, targets on the upside can be spotted with a potential of 195 percent.”
Besides the bullish attitude that Stellar Lumens had, the Crypto Fear and Greed Index (CFGI) is noticing a huge levels of greed among investors. Greed is conventionally seen as a negative sign and tends to indicate that a selling opportunity is coming in the near future. Following the new 65% upward movement that Stellar Lumens experienced from the second half of December 2019, a correction is reasonable. Bearish impulses like this can help to maintain the upward trend healthy by permitting sideliners to get back into the market. A new inflow of capital will probably send Stellar Lumens into growth.

the stellar platform
The Stellar platform has gained a lot of attention in the crypto news lately and proved that it still has a strong ratio against Bitcoin. One reason for all of this excitement behind the cryptocurrency are the projects that are created using its platform. So far, Ethereum has been credited for opening a new horizon in blockchain-based applications. Stellar has earned credibility through projects - a lot of them - and maintained its reputation proving that it is a powerful player in the crypto space. Below, we are listing its eleven exciting projects which are opening up a new horizon and solving real-life problems.
  1. The IBM Universal Payment Solution - IBM uses the Stellar platform to give more transparency into their payment structure. As sources show, the company is close to helping a central bank move paper money on the Stellar blockchain network.
  2. Veridium - This project is in partnership with IBM and Stellar and aims to tokenize the carbon market globally. It has been in the Stellar news for a while now, dealing with automating the offsetting of carbon emissions.
  3. Stellar X - Creating a great user interface through the "decentralized" aspect.
  4. Open Garden - Allowing the users to turn their phone into a WiFi hotspot and get paid in Stelalr Lumens (XLM) for data they used.
  5. TillBilly - A platform which aims to establish a thoroughbred point-of-sale (POS) service on the Stellar Network, easing the burden of paper receipts.
  6. Slice - Slice is tokenizing real estate projects which were previously only accessible to institutions that are established in the United States.
  7. Sure Remit - A remittance network that Africans can use to send money home to their loved ones..
  8. SmartLands - The Stellar platform wants to tokenize agricultural lands and enable the use of crypto for acquiring landed properties.
  9. Tempo - This is a money transfer remittance company offering a well-established platform which resembles the 'European Western Union' with penny-based fees per transactions.
  10. Stronghold - A USD anchor that helps the Stellar platform to issue tokens including BTC, ETH and USD.
  11. SatoshiPay - What started as a micro-payments platform for web content on the bitcoin network is now an avenue which can help Stellar's massive adoption.
All of these projects stand as proof that the Stellar platform is developing in the right direction.

Stellar Foundation Published Mandate For New Future Spending Plans

Published

By

europe's oldest bank
The stellar foundation published a mandate that clearly explains the plans for the future spending of the company. SDF has 30 billion Stellar Lumens (XLM) in possession which is roughly equivalent to $1.3 billion and the company aims to spend these funds on making Stellar bigger and to promote it further as we are reading in the XLM news today. In the published mandate, the Stellar Foundation announced that they have actually set the funding aside. As of December, 20,9 billion XLM or $400 million has been transferred to escrow accounts that are set to unlock annually until 2023 and the rest of the funds will be distributed over the next ten years or maybe even sooner. The mandate indicates that about 12 billion XLM is allocated to direct development and these funds will be spent for the development of XLM as well as operational costs, policy efforts, salaries, and business relations. The Stellar development foundation noted that it often sells XLM in this category on exchanges and a part of the funds could end up in circulating supply. SDF has dedicated 10 billion XLM to use-cases investments and they will spend it on other projects, acquisitions and venture capital-style backing and the company separately allocated 2 billion XLM to support the ecosystem which involves grants to independent projects and future events. The SDF reserved 6 billion XLM for user acquisition and the funds in this category will go towards marketing campaigns but some of the funds will reach the users directly through in-app distribution and airdrops. Back in November, SDF reduced the holdings from 85 billion XLM to 30 billion XLM and the token burn destroyed more than half of Stellar’s entire supply and they expected that this decision will boost the value of each XLM token so the ‘’SDF can be leaner and do the work it was created to do using fewer lumens.’’ Stellar discontinued inflation since the inflation rewards didn’t reach the ecosystem projects but the users often claimed the rewards for themselves. The end of inflation means that the entire ecosystem funding has to be drawn from the existing funds which is something the SDF’s new mandate should do this more effectively.
