Dubai Police Announces 24-Hour Timeline to Recover Lost Passports Using Blockchain Tech

September 30, 2022 11:05:00

Blockchain technology may have been popularized by the cryptocurrency craze, but it is now being used in a variety of alternative applications. Features such as elevated security and data traceability that made cryptocurrencies such a hit have made blockchain equally popular and resulted in plenty of innovative uses. For example, authorities in Dubai are leveraging blockchain technology to speed up passport recovery efforts.

Losing your passport can be a hassle, especially if it happens in a foreign country, and it can take anywhere from eight business days to eight weeks to have the passport replaced.  In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), however, blockchain technology will allow you to find your missing passport within…

CryptoNewsBreaks – BlockQuarry Corp. (BLQC) Releases Corporate Update, Financial Highlights

September 29, 2022 11:30:35

BlockQuarry (OTC: BLQC), a Texas-based company with commercial-stage operations in cryptocurrency mine hosting and self-mining in the southeast United States, is providing shareholders with provisional and unaudited Q3 performance projections along with highlights from its financial performance for the three months ended June 30, 2022. According to the update, BLQC management anticipates that the company is “on pace” for top-line sequential quarterly growth of some 30% during the three months ending Sept. 30, 2022. In addition, the update noted that for the three months ended June 30, 2022, revenue was up almost 8,000% year over year, totaled more than $1.5 million, and total assets increased by nearly 6,000%, reaching nearly $11 million. In addition, debt reduction from liabilities for the quarter was over $2 million and shareholder base numbered more than 7,000 shareholders and a float of 47 million shares. The announcement also noted that the company has been fully engaged in the process of responding to SEC comments for the confidential filing of Form S-1. “We had a fantastic 2021, but we believe 2022 is on pace to significantly raise the bar,” said BlockQuarry president and chair Alonzo Pierce in the press release. “Our hosting revenue this year has already surpassed what we produced from that segment for the whole year in 2021. Moreover, due to our market positioning and signed agreements with major partners, 2022 appears set to be our best year ever on both the top and bottom line, with Q3 on pace to show strong growth on both a sequential and year-over-year basis, and we are excited to further bolster our positioning and performance trajectory into year end. . . . Given our substantial hosting footprint, our long-term trajectory toward accelerating top-line growth is not contingent on price trends in the cryptocurrency market as we scale our operations. In other words, the price of Bitcoin has no bearing on our financial performance in our hosting business. As a result, we believe our stock price no longer reflects our fundamental value proposition for our shareholders following the recent period of significant weakness in cryptocurrency related assets. Given our hybrid model, our lack of toxic financing on the balance sheet, and our current partnerships and agreements with strong-handed players in the space, we believe we are positioned to thrive over the long term.”

CryptoNewsBreaks – LQwD FinTech Corp. (TSX.V: LQWD) (OTCQB: LQWDF) Leveraging Lightning Network to Offer Better Solutions

September 19, 2022 11:28:47

LQwD FinTech (TSX.V: LQWD) (OTCQB: LQWDF) is focused on developing institution-grade payment infrastructure, liquidity and solutions for the Lightning Network (“LN”). The company is at the forefront of making micropayment transactions quick and affordable for consumers by leveraging its Bitcoin assets to create the channels necessary to facilitate growth across the LN. “LQwD has expanded its reach, providing LN nodes across 17 countries and a goal of increasing its presence to 24 countries by the end of the current quarter… Collectively, these [existing] nodes offer users a capacity of over 30 BTC and access to over 300 payment channels. The company also released the first version of its proprietary technology platform-as-a-service (‘PaaS’) in November 2021, allowing for easier management of LN nodes and offering itself as a Liquidity Service Provider (‘LSP’) for merchants,” a recent article reads. “Transactions on the Lightning Network offer solutions for users and merchants that exceed the limits in place by other providers. In terms of transactions per second (‘TPS’), Bitcoin’s blockchain only offers a capacity of 7 TPS, whereas leading providers like Visa offer 24k TPS. The LN increases the capabilities for sending and receiving payments exponentially, bypassing leading financial institutions with more than a million TPS… With countries looking to make payment solutions easier for consumers, the LN offers a solution that traditional banks cannot – ease of payment, quicker transaction times, and higher levels of security for each transaction.”

Europol Says Blockchain Vital in Fighting Crime

September 12, 2022 11:50:00

When cryptocurrencies were first introduced, they promised to deliver low to zero transaction costs, unlimited withdrawals and purchases, fast transaction speeds, and enhanced security and privacy. These features set crypto apart from centralized currencies and attracted millions of users in just a few years.

Wild West Crypto Show Features 2B3D’s Innovative Solutions for Veterans and More

September 2, 2022 12:20:00

Conservative alt-coin podcast hosts Drew Taylor and Brent Bates recently welcomed guests and the audience to another episode of their wildly popular Wild West Crypto Show. Special guests to the program included CryptoCurrencyWire’s Jonathan Keim, who shared the three hottest stories in cryptos. The show also shined the spotlight on interviews with some of the attendees of the recent NFT Conference held in Las Vegas. “2B3D is synonymous for metaverse… Over 31,000 veterans have killed themselves since 9/11. It’s a major, major problem… Studies show that if you can get to somebody within five to fifteen minutes of that thought process, it’s a 90% success rate… So, what we’ve done is, using our company and our innovative tech, we’ve built a metaverse room where somebody can put goggles on and immediately ‘be in a crisis center,’ where they can talk to somebody. We use very lifelike, real tech, so it looks like you’re in a doctor’s office. They’ll also be able to connect with therapists and get the help that they need immediately,” said Robert Bell, CEO of 2B3D, speaking of the company’s flagship solution. He went on to say that 2B3D has partnered with the non-profit Forge Forward project in order to leverage virtual reality solutions for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”). Speaking of gamification having shown significant positive results, he indicated that the collaborators’ next-gen treatments are now in sponsor-funded clinical trials and designed to help not only the veteran, but the community, including the wife, business owner, co-worker, friend, and family.

Blockchain Tech Transforming How People Invest

September 2, 2022 09:50:00

Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize how several industries operate.

And even though the crypto market has stumbled in recent months, blockchain is still attracting attention from a variety of industries.

CryptoNewsBreaks – Bit Digital Inc. (NASDAQ: BTBT) Announces Q2 2022 Financial Results

August 31, 2022 13:12:04

Bit Digital (NASDAQ: BTBT), a digital asset mining company headquartered in New York, has announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. The company reported $6.5 million in bitcoin mining revenue and $0.3 million in revenue from ethereum mining among the financial highlights. According to management commentary, “In the second quarter of 2022, we managed to modestly increase bitcoin production on a sequential basis despite the previously announced interruptions to certain hosting partners’ operations. Fortunately, our team is well versed when it comes to overcoming logistical hurdles. Our rapid response included signing a new hosting agreement with Coinmint for 20 MW of primarily carbon-free power and executing a hash rate swap agreement with another miner, which provided for a 25% boost to our swapped hash rate. These actions helped propel our active hash rate to 1.06 EH/s by early July, which is nearly double where our active hash rate stood prior to the interruptions at the end of April.”

Now, it seems that blockchain could play a major role in humanitarian efforts in Europe in the wake of Russia’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine.

Blockchain Security Auditors on High Demand as Hacking Threats Escalate

August 26, 2022 11:50:00

As more reports of cryptocurrency hackings make the news, the demand for experts in blockchain security has risen, with some of these professionals earning in excess of $430,000 annually. Neil Dundon, the founder of blockchain recruitment company CryptoRecruit,  indicated that for a long time, the demand for audit services in the blockchain space has been high. However, the growing number of defi (decentralized finance) protocols has upped the ante and created a soaring demand for experts who can review these protocols and identify any vulnerabilities in the smart contracts upon which these defi systems run.

This emphasis on blockchain security isn’t altogether exaggerated because what we are seeing is that hackers can identify one vulnerability in a system and make off with millions or even billions of dollars in a single cyberattack. And the data backs up how serious such a threat can be…

CryptoNewsBreaks – BIT Mining Limited (NYSE: BTCM) Issues Letter to Investors

August 25, 2022 10:30:49

BIT Mining (NYSE: BTCM), a leading technology-driven cryptocurrency mining company, today released a letter to its investors, which addressed recent declines in both the stock and cryptocurrency markets as well as the company’s resilience. “After two rounds of financing in 2022, we continue to invest in R&D, innovation and upgrading our core businesses. Our 82.5 MW power capacity at the Ohio Data Center not only can accommodate our own mining operations but also provide hosting services for third parties. We’ve settled our operations in the United States, which offers a rich diversity of opportunity, a better regulatory framework, a stable power supply, and access to the most efficient capital markets on the planet. Our subsidiary, the ASIC designer and machine manufacturer, Bee Computing, has completed prototypes of a new generation of highly efficient BTC and LTC/DOGE mining machines utilizing the latest technology. In the coming months, we will have engineering samples and commence testing of the new BTC miners. Our new ETC miners are among the lowest in terms of power consumption (0.7w/M) on the market. With our partners at Global Foundries, we’ve also successfully taped out a 12 nm chip and have completed production of more than 1,000 Litecoin mining wafers,” BIT Mining Chairman Bo Yu writes in the letter. “Our company has twice built incredibly successful businesses, which have been halted by governmental regulations, so we are no stranger to reinventing ourselves… Having overcome many obstacles, what was once a gradually growing confidence in our company’s ability to redefine itself has turned into excitement about the next challenge to come, as every crisis we’ve faced has been turned into another opportunity to evolve. We want to remind our investors that the fluctuations in our share price will not affect our regular business operations, nor will it cause us to lose sight of our long-term growth strategy. We want to also take a moment to mention that we are proud to be a part of the greater cryptocurrency sector, where there is such an amazing and inspiring amount of innovation and imagination, and we remain devoted to continually and actively exploring new opportunities within the space.

LQwD FinTech (TSX.V: LQWD) (OTCQB: LQWDF), a company focused on developing institution-grade payment infrastructure, liquidity and solutions for the Lightning Network (“LN”), is focused on increasing the scalability of Bitcoin and transactions using the LN. “The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland Working Paper Series released Working Paper 22-19 in June 2022 entitled ‘The Lightning Network: Turning Bitcoin into Money.’ The FED conjectures early on that the LN has reduced Bitcoin blockchain congestion and resulted in lower mining fees… The introduction of the LN has reduced the amount of time it takes for payment processing to provide almost instant results. The overall consensus is that the Network can help Bitcoin achieve greater scalability as a payments system and states, ‘According to our results, if the LN had existed in 2017, congestion could have been 93% lower,’” a recent article reads. “In November 2021, LQwD released its platform-as-a-service (‘PaaS’) offering, https://lqwd.tech/, which serves as a platform for node hosting and managing channels on the LN, and acts as a Liquidity Service Provider (‘LSP’) for merchants. LQwD’s nodes are distributed globally to allow for maximum scalability and growth.

Canaan (NASDAQ: CAN), a leading high-performance computing solutions provider, today announced its unaudited financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2022. “We went through a challenging second quarter as the Bitcoin price continued to tumble down to under US$20 thousand. The COVID-19 containment lockdown in key cities in China also brought severe disruptions to our daily operations and demand for our AI chips,” said Nangeng Zhang, chairman and CEO of Canaan. “Facing these obstacles, we strived to deliver for our clients and achieved total computing power sold of 5.5 million Thash/s, up 27.5% sequentially. In order to support our global expansion, we further integrated operations overseas in our Singapore international headquarters, which now features a research and development team and other operational functions. Leveraging our Singapore office, we extended our supply chain into Southeast Asia during the second quarter and completed the initial batch of deliveries. During the second quarter, we continued to collaborate with mining farm partners to ramp up our mining business and generated an increasing number of Bitcoins with an improved power supply. As of June 30, 2022, we held a total of 346.84 Bitcoins. Overall, we are fully aware of the downward pressure from the Bitcoin price since the last fourth quarter and expect it to bring prolonged headwinds to our performance in the coming quarters. Nevertheless, we believe in the unique value of Bitcoin and its long-term prospects. We are committed to developing our supercomputing technology on more advanced nodes and providing competitive products and best-of-class services to clients around the world.”

CryptoNewsBreaks – Stronghold Digital Mining Inc. (NASDAQ: SDIG) Announces Q2 2022 Results, Operational Update, Significant Debt Restructuring Events

August 17, 2022 11:18:58

Stronghold (NASDAQ: SDIG) has reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022, provided an operational update and announced significant debt restructuring events. “Today we are announcing a series of transactions that we believe transform Stronghold into a materially less-levered, vertically integrated Bitcoin miner with significantly improved liquidity and flexibility to deploy capital opportunistically in a way that creates equity value through cycles in the Bitcoin and power markets,” said Greg Beard, co-chairman and chief executive officer of Stronghold. “By returning miners to NYDIG that served as the collateral for the non-recourse financing agreements and restructuring the WhiteHawk financing agreements and the Convertible Notes, we will be able to eliminate over half of our total principal amount of debt outstanding and the significant associated interest and principal payments. Additionally, WhiteHawk’s continued support of Stronghold allows us to extend a significant portion of our remaining debt and provides additional availability for us to patiently and opportunistically acquire Bitcoin miners at currently depressed prices. Combined with our May 2022 convertible note holders’ commitment to swap debt for equity over time, at our option, Stronghold is back on offense.”

CryptoNewsBreaks – HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSX.V: HIVE) (NASDAQ: HIVE) (FSE: HBF) Releases Q1 2023 Report

August 17, 2022 11:06:01

HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSX.V: HIVE) (NASDAQ: HIVE) (FSE: HBF) is reporting its earnings for the first quarter 2023, the period ending June 30, 2022. According to the announcement, the company saw a strong gross mining margin of $27 million for the quarter, which represents an 18% increase over the prior quarter’s $22.9 million margin. The company pointed to its global Bitcoin and Ethereum mining operations as drivers for this growth, observing that the operations experienced significant hashrate growth during the quarter. The report also noted that HIVE maintains the best operational uptime among its peers and has repeatedly been the most efficient crypto-miner based on digital assets mined per Exahash, which is commonly measured as quantity of mined Bitcoin per Exahash of reported hashrate. Other highlights of the report include the company’s gross mining margin of 61%, which is also an increase from last quarter, and its Bitcoin production, which totaled 821 Bitcoin this quarter and is an increase of 265% year over year. Other items worth noting are the company’s adjusted EBITDA of $11.2 million; noncash charges of $118.7 million, including impairment on equipment and equipment deposits totaling $11 million; a $95.3 million net loss after noncash charges and mark-to-market adjustment; working capital decrease of $112.4 million which was partially attributable to the sale of digital currencies during the quarter; and digital currency assets of $71.4 million at quarter end. “We wish to again thank our loyal shareholders for believing in our vision to mine both Ethereum and Bitcoin to generate robust cash flow returns on invested capital, and we believe our results continue to validate the significant contribution to our strategy to mine both BTC and ETH and HODL as many coins as possible,” said HIVE executive chair Frank Holmes in the press release. “It was an extremely challenging quarter for the global digital asset ecosystem, where we saw the capitulation of Bitcoin and Ethereum prices not seen since 2020. On a relative basis we are very pleased with our company’s performance amongst our peers in the digital asset industry. . . . HIVE was dedicated to navigating through this crypto storm for our shareholders, while delivering profitable gross mining margins of $27 million and adjusted EBITDA of $11.2 million. Our global team of technicians, coders and executives all working together delivered this for the shareholders.”

Cryptocurrencies Appear to Have Seen the Worst of Crypto Winter

August 15, 2022 10:35:00

In June, the global cryptocurrency market experienced a significant slump after crypto lending company Celcius Network froze transfers and withdrawals due to “extreme conditions.” Although the crypto decline had begun as early as November 2020 when Bitcoin saw its value fall below $20,000, the market nearly collapsed in June as a majority of cryptocurrencies saw their values drop by more than 90%.

Bitcoin, which is the largest and most popular cryptocurrency in the world, dropped in value by more than 70% while Ethereum fell past $1,000. Crypto prices began to level out after the drop in June, with Bitcoin leveling out at $23,000 to $24,000 and other digital currencies such as Ethereum have rallied over the…

LQwD FinTech Corp. (TSX.V: LQWD) (OTCQB: LQWDF) Continues Pursuing Scalability of Bitcoin Micropayments Using the Lightning Network Amidst Oppositional ECB Paper Publication

August 15, 2022 08:05:00
  • The FED and ECB have taken different sides on the scalability of the Lightning Network as a viable solution to solving the world’s payment problems
  • LQwD currently has 19 active nodes on the Lightning Network – each with a capacity that continues to grow, with the goal of creating access to 24 countries worldwide by the end of the current quarter
  • LQwD’s active nodes include US-West, Ireland, India, Germany, Brazil, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sweden, South Korea, South Africa, Bahrain, Indonesia, Italy, Australia, Japan-Osaka, France, Canada, England, and Japan
  • The cryptocurrency market is expected to reach US $2.2 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.1%

On the heels of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Working Paper Series release of “The Lightning Network: Turning Bitcoin into Money,” the European Central Bank (“ECB”) has published its own, “Towards the Holy Grail of Cross-Border Payments,” exploring six potential avenues for addressing the inefficiencies in cross-border payments to address the need for immediate, cheap, universal reach, and secure settlement in the industry (https://ccw.fm/foWmw).

Much like the FED paper, ECB lays out the framework for using blockchain and Bitcoin payment structures to facilitate payments but also incorporates the drawbacks associated with the ever-changing technology. The ECB paper hypothesizes that even with the use of the Lightning Network, a layer 2 payment…

Blockchain Technology Could Go Mainstream Via Adult Entertainment Industry

August 5, 2022 09:20:00

Blockchain technology was revolutionary when it was first introduced in 2008 as part of a new digital currency called Bitcoin. Over the past decade, blockchain has provided systems with increased technology, speed and efficiency due to its decentralized nature. Even as cryptocurrency prices have hit historic lows in the past couple of months, several industries are keen on adopting blockchain into their systems.

The adult industry, which is known for being among the first sectors to adopt new technologies, could benefit a great deal from blockchain’s decentralized nature. Estimated to be worth billions of dollars, the adult industry could leverage blockchain’s capabilities to create safe and inclusive…

Read More>>

The sector evolved with the times, transitioning from VHS and Blu-ray to the internet as the technology evolved. Furthermore, it was among the first industries to earn big bucks on the internet, and it continues to earn more than $1 billion per year through internet streaming. As online transactions and the web itself become more decentralized (Web 3), it is only natural that an industry that has been at the forefront of technology adoption will adopt blockchain as well.

Even though the adult industry is in an era where performers own the content they create, they often lack convenient methods of receiving payment. This forces them to depend on traditional banking solutions that are synonymous with high fees, chargebacks, payment cancellations and account closures. These payments also provide little privacy for the consumers buying adult content.

Cryptocurrencies have the potential to solve these issues by removing the middleman and allowing creators and clients to carry out financial transactions directly. Furthermore, the increased privacy associated with cryptos will allow users to keep their identities hidden, alleviating the privacy concerns associated with purchasing adult content.

Established adult sites have already seen how they could benefit from blockchain, and some of them have even incorporated cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin into their payment systems. Newer sites have taken it a step further and created entire online ecosystems powered by blockchain to make the fan experience even better.

The Pleasure Network, for instance, has released a number of inclusive and safe adult platforms that are powered by NSFW, the Pleasure Coin utility token. This token allows creators to receive payments without any risk of chargebacks. It will also be used in Pleasureland, an incoming metaverse that will be the world’s first adult metaverse.

With entities such as Tingo Inc. (OTC: TMNA) also working to deepen the reach of blockchain in various sectors, a time may come when this technology is present in every aspect of human life.

How the Recent Interest Rate Hike May Affect Cryptocurrencies

August 3, 2022 13:20:00

After weeks of intense speculation, the U.S. Federal Reserve has increased benchmark interest rates by 0.75% as inflation levels have soared. A statement from the Fed states that high inflation levels, increasing energy and food prices and the Russia-Ukraine war have caused upward pressure on inflation and impacted global economic activity. The most recent interest rate increase, which is the fourth consecutive such hike this year, will most likely increase volatility within the cryptocurrency market.

The Fed seems hell-bent on forestalling inflation and has taken an increasingly hawkish stance to ensure inflation remains at 2% over the long term. The most recent interest hike will most likely throw another monkey wrench at the crypto market soon after the industry saw historically low prices and…

Wild West Crypto Show Shines the Spotlight on RAILGUN, a Smart Contract System

August 3, 2022 11:50:00

Conservative alt-coin podcast hosts Drew Taylor and Brent Bates recently welcomed guests and the audience to another episode of their wildly popular Wild West Crypto Show. Special guests to the program included CryptoCurrencyWire’s Jonathan Keim with the three hottest stories in cryptocurrencies, as well as Alan Scott, head of growth at RAILGUN. Scott describes RAILGUN as a smart contract system built for privately transacting crypto on public ledger blockchains. “You can take and transact stable tokens privately… I think if we want crypto to be the future of finance, it has to have some semblance of modern, traditional rails. So, if you were to go to your favorite store in Texas, maybe to buy a cheeseburger, you swipe your debit card and it will gain access to your bank account,” he said. “In crypto, the second you and I have done a transaction, you would then gain access to my entire transaction history and could continue to follow me into the future as long as I use that wallet… So, it will be really important if cryptos achieve mainstream adoption to have some privacy… We built a smart contract using zero knowledge that allows users to take and deposit funds into a private wallet and then transact with that, all wholly on chain.”

CryptoNewsBreaks – Riot Blockchain Inc. (NASDAQ: RIOT) Releases July 2022 Updates on Productions, Operations

August 3, 2022 11:17:34

Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ: RIOT), an industry leader in Bitcoin mining and hosting, has released its July 2022 production and operations report. According to the report, during the month of July, Riot produced 318 BTC, a 28% decrease from the company’s July 2021 production of 443 BTC, and earned approximately $9.5 million in power credits as a result of curtailment activity; those power credits equate to approximately 439 BTC. The company also reported that it held some 6,696 BTC, all produced by Riot’s self-mining operations. In addition, the company sold 275 BTC, which generated approximately $5.6 million in net proceeds. The report also noted that Riot has a deployed fleet of 40,311 miners, with a hash rate capacity of 4.2 exahash per second (“EH/s”); that capacity has been impacted briefly by the relocation of a portion of the company’s mining fleet from a third-party hosting facility to its Whinstone facility, a move that the company anticipates will further reduce production costs. “We are pleased to report that Riot has demonstrated the effectiveness of its power strategy during the month of July,” said Riot Blockchain CEO Jason Les in the press release. “The company has consistently and proactively pursued low-cost, large-scale access to power under its long-term fixed rate power contracts, providing it with a unique ability to support ERCOT and release capacity back into the grid when power demand in Texas is high. . . . As energy demand in ERCOT reached all-time highs this past month, the Company voluntarily curtailed its energy consumption in order to ensure that more power would be available in Texas. Riot curtailed a total of 11,717 megawatt hours in July, enough to power 13,121 average homes for one month. Curtailing the Company’s power consumption reduced BTC production by an estimated 21% in July, but also significantly reduced Riot’s power costs for the month.”

Three Generations of Blockchain Tech Evolution

August 1, 2022 11:50:00

Most experts will say that there have been three generations of the web: Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.1. The first iteration of the internet is also referred to as the read-only web, the second is the participative social web and the third version of the internet is the “read, write, execute web.” These three generations have been spread out over the past three decades or so since the internet was invented.

Just as there has been three generations of the web, blockchain technology has also evolved through three different eras, albeit over a much shorter timeline. But while the third iteration of the internet, Web 3.0, is still in its infancy, the three generations of blockchain have distinct and…

  • The cryptocurrency market was valued at US $1.6 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $2.2 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.1%

The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland Working Paper Series released Working Paper 22-19 in June 2022 entitled “The Lightning Network: Turning Bitcoin into Money.” The FED conjectures early on that the Lightning Network (“LN”) has reduced Bitcoin blockchain congestion and resulted in lower mining fees. Since its introduction in 2009, Bitcoin has grown in value but still has capacity constraints regarding payment processing capability. The average blockchain transaction only allows seven transactions per second, which pales in comparison with centralized payment infrastructures like Visa or Mastercard (https://ccw.fm/g5sdt).

California Lawmakers Vote to Allow Political Campaign Donations in Cryptocurrencies

July 27, 2022 12:35:00

Cryptocurrency has grown increasingly popular in the past decade partly because of its enhanced security, privacy and anonymity. This anonymity is one of the primary reasons California regulators outlawed all political donations in cryptocurrencies in 2018.

After more than three years since the ban on cryptocurrency donations, lawmakers in California have voted to allow political campaign donations in Bitcoin and other digital currencies. Municipal and state political candidates will now be able to receive donations in cryptocurrency within…
