Japan Crypto Regulation: Exchanges Could Get New Rules Regarding Cold Wallets

Published

on

japan crypto regulation

The Japan crypto regulation is a hot topic in the latest cryptocurrency news, especially after the country’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) has decided to introduce new rules regarding cold wallets that would allow users to store cryptocurrencies at crypto exchanges.

As Reuters reported on April 17 citing a source familiar with the entire matter, the country’s financial regulator will reportedly require crypto exchanges to strengthen internal supervision of cold wallets – which are basically devices for storing digital currency which are not connected to the Internet.

The new Japan crypto regulation will also see the FSA addressing all of the difficulties of ensuring the security of digital currencies as well as other risks for the country since it intends to boost the fintech industry and stimulate economic growth.

Even though cold wallets are not connected to the Internet, in that manner they provide better security to global assets. Still, the FSA suggests that there could be risks of internal theft – something that was shared a lot on many best cryptocurrency news sites. As one source noted, a number of exchanges don’t actually have policies set in place where the people responsible for the storage would be regularly rotated out.

The FSA further addressed the Japan crypto regulation issue earlier this month, when it heard arguments for no longer classifying Bitcoin (BTC) as a currency. During one plenary session at the 41st General Assembly of the Financial Council and the 29th Financial Division meeting, Professor Iwashita Goto of Kyoto University argued that Bitcoin had become a currency that is beyond means of transacting mostly due to its borderless qualities which led it to appear throughout the world in its ten-year history.

Aside from this, a month ago the FSA also approved the second cryptocurrency exchange to begin operations under new regulations – and started issuing licenses to new cryptocurrency exchanges that were interested in serving the Japanese market. All of this leads to a brighter future where the Japan crypto regulation is not anymore a challenge.

Bitmain Lost More Than $625 Million, Hopes On New Tech To Turnaround

bitmain lost
Bitmain lost more than $625 million in the first two months of this year but it still remains positive that the new technology will help it to turnaround based on the high demand for the new 7nm mining machines as we can read in the coming altcoin news below. According to a report from the Chinese news outlet, the total operating income for the first quarter of Bitmain was about $1.082 billion dollars and with revenues split over the three months as $253 million, $253 million and $579 million. In the first two months of 2019, the company lost more than $345 million and $280 million but in March Bitmain posted a profit of $215 billion. Still, Bitmain lost more than $310 over the Q1 which is not a good look for the company. The loss was down to the outdated 16nm mining rig inventory which was sold at very low prices. Despite the Q1 losses, Bitmain expects a better performance in H2 once the old stack is cleared and the company starts selling the new 7nm machines. Bitmain also placed a huge order for the 7nm chips from the Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company whit a lead time of 3 and 4 months. The company expects cash flow to steadily increase in Q3 because advanced orders are expected and then an explosive growth in the earnings as well. The company also expects a huge growth in profits on its artificial intelligence line of products. As we can read in the best cryptocurrency news sites, Bitmain still has to post some improved results if it wants to attract investors to its IPO. The company revived its IPO plans for the United States after the original filing in Hong Kong lapsed. Bitmain had a very bad year in 2018 when the prices fell across the crypto markets and it even took an ill-advised gamble on bitcoin cash. This was considered as good news because the mining became more decentralized and the mining dominance of the company dropped. The upturn in the bitcoin fortunes has also helped the company to recover with some of the sources saying that the staff options were completed already with the revival of the IPO.

US Senator Sherrod Brown Believes Libra Is A Subprime Mortgage

US Senator Sherrod Brown didn’t hold back when talking about Facebook’s foray into the crypto space comparing Libra with the subprime mortgage crisis that caused the global recession in 2008 as we have read previously in the altcoin news. Facebook’s entry into the crypto world has made many enemies in the political circles and the backlash for the cryptocurrency was so bad that it painted the rest of the crypto community in a bad light. However, this week the senators have discussed the nature of cryptocurrencies and Libra separately. The high ranking senator Sherrod Brown stated that before the economy was destroyed in 2008, the bankers were trying to pitch innovative products- subprime mortgages. Now Facebook claims that its new currency will help the unbanked and underbanked people so these ‘’ mortgages’’ are supposed to help people who have never had the access to credit archive, leave the American dream and become homeowners eventually. The senator continued to explain that in reality, the mortgages ripped off millions of people and families who ended up losing their homes and life savings so they wrecked the economy and made the inequality in the country even worse. Some of the tech companies and Wall Street banks who were hiding behind innovation as an excuse took over the important public services and destroyed it further. The primary fear arises from the notion that Facebook is attempting to become the world’s first and largest internet bank. With a massive user base of third of the world’s population, even a fraction of the users to use Libra will destabilize the entire existing financial system. The comments that the senator Brown made are similar to those of the Republican crypto adversary Brad Sherman who said that Libra could ‘’ do more to endanger America than 9/11.’’ His rhetoric was applied to bitcoin as well as referring to drug dealers, human traffickers, and money launderers. As seen in the latest cryptocurrency news, Facebook has been in the heat and under pressure from the regulators over the past few weeks. Earlier this week, the company hinted that the project ‘’ may never see the light of day.’’ The data privacy scandals are among the reasons why it is not wise to let Facebook mess up with user bases and data and especially not money.

Steve Bannon Remains A Strong BTC Supporter Despite Trump’s Hate

Steve Bannon, the long term bitcoin bull and crypto supporter but most importantly the architect of the Trump campaign, remains a strong supporter despite Trump’s negative stance on cryptocurrencies as we read in the latest cryptocurrency news. When he was speaking with CNBC, Steve Bannon boasted that he had the courage and strength to buy Bitcoin as its price dropped down in 2018 crashing from the previous high of $20,000 to a low of more than $3,100. He stated:
 “I would like to say I had enough foresight and enough courage to buy as it went all the way down.’’
The bitcoin price was trading today at $10,560 which means that Bannon was highly rewarded and some other crypto investors as well that survived the ‘’crypto winter.’’ Steve Bannon had a bullish bet that led Joe Krenen himself who is also a budding Crypto Twitter darling to create a new nickname for the Breitbart executive chairman to ‘’Bitcoin Bannon.’’ Steve Bannon says that his interest in cryptocurrency is now more than speculative. The remarks he made in the past he stated that crypto technology would be a huge and important part of this new true passion project which is the ‘’global populist revolt.’’
 “I think cryptocurrencies have a big future, I really do. I think they can be a very important part going forward, particularly in this global populist revolt.’’
Previously, Bannon called bitcoin and its usage a ‘’disruptive populism’’ and stated that the cryptocurrency is a revolutionary technology because it takes back the control from the central authorities which are central banks and US Federal Reserve who have strict monetary policies and have been causing President Trump so much consternation in the past year. Bannon even noted that he is considering launching its own ‘’utility token for the populist movement’’ but it is still not appear that the plans are going really anywhere. As noted in the coming altcoin news, Trump stated that he is not a fan of bitcoin and some of the cabinet officials have railed against the cryptocurrency and connected it with criminal activity. The Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin even warned that it could even become a national security risk and a huge threat to the global financial system.

Boris Johnson And Brexit Boost The Bitcoin Price: Analysis

Published

Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of Britain who was given the hard task to guide the UK through Brexit could be the major reason why the bitcoin price and interest on Google increased. In the latest cryptocurrency news, we are finding more about the correlation. Google searches have increased dramatically in England over the year according to reports. The term ‘’Bitcoin’’ generated massive interest on Google Trends recently as Britain is trying to detach in the popular Brexit movement from the European Union. The new Prime Minister Boris Johnson maintained that he will not give into Brussel’s games so the politicians in the opposing camps stated that when the country leaves the EU zone, it will destroy the economy of the country. However, over the years the report shows that being in the European Union only caused damage for Britain on the economic plan. The scenario caused some major concerns on an economic level as the GBP dropped dramatically over the past year. Since the end of February, the Sterling lost about 7$ against the US dollar which means it reached a twelve month low of $1.238. At the moment, there is some hope for better days ahead for Britain as it seems like it will leave the EU in October. The European Commission is trying to tell Boris Johnson that they will not give in into his demands and will not negotiate the withdrawal agreement. With all of the concerns over the economic issues and negative price action in the fiat currencies, people are still looking into bitcoin as a safe haven and a good investment. People are trying to find alternatives as a hedge so Bitcoin is considered as a global currency which is a good place to start since Britain is not the only country with these kinds of crypto trends. As noted in the altcoin news previously, countries that were banned by the US and sanction as well, are keen on bitcoin since it is able to bypass the sanctions. Venezuela is one of those examples since the country is now using BTC to pay for the major taxes. Russia and China as well including Iran also express more interest in cryptocurrencies and consider them as a safety for their countries.
