Three Concerns Slowing the Uptake of Blockchain Technology

May 27, 2022 13:05:00

Blockchain technology has been touted as the biggest thing to happen since the invention of the internet. The technology has potential to revolutionize different sectors, including healthcare, finance, education, mining and others. However, the adoption of this technology has been significantly slower than its proponents would wish, and there are a number of reasons to explain this slow process. We explore a few in the discussion below.

High upfront costs

The cost of establishing a blockchain system is steep to say the least, and only the most committed of institutional entities have the deep pockets to finance such an undertaking. This could explain why many entities, including banks and…

CryptoNewsBreaks – GreenBox POS (NASDAQ: GBOX) Leveraging Acquisitions to Amplify Margin Profile, Secure Processing Volume Base, Offer Additional Solutions

May 26, 2022 14:12:26

GreenBox (NASDAQ: GBOX), an innovative blockchain ledger fintech company, views acquisitions as a vital part of its growth strategy. Chairman Ben Errez notes that acquisitions allow the company to “Purchase merchant portfolios, adding processing volume to our platform, and provide a way to obtain key licensing assets, both domestically and globally, that enable us to branch out and service more verticals and geographic locations.” According to a recent article, GreenBox closed an asset purchase agreement with Sky Financial & Intelligence to acquire a portfolio of merchant accounts that contributed over $1 billion to the company’s total processing volume of about $2 billion for the full year 2021. “The acquisition of the substantial Sky portfolios is yet another stride forward for us and accomplishes two very important things,” commented Errez. “[First,] by bringing a large merchant account portfolio in-house, we eliminate the cost previously incurred from commissions and amplify our margin profile. Second, it allows GreenBox to own these customer relationships, securing a considerable portion of our processing volume base with the bonus of being able to offer additional revenue-generating solutions.”

Despite a Volatile Bitcoin Market, LQwD FinTech Corp. (TSX.V: LQWD) (OTCQB: LQWDF) Scaling Lightning Network and Increasing Channel Capacities

May 26, 2022 09:35:00
  • LQwD released its platform as a service offering in November 2021, also releasing its first node on the Lightning Network – US-West
  • Since then, nine additional nodes have been released worldwide: Ireland, India, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Singapore, Sweeden, England, and France – with more likely to follow
  • Despite volatility in Bitcoin, the Lightning Network continues to grow, with most recent reports indicating that the Network’s capacity is over 3,539 BTC
  • Users can send payments quickly and with lower fees when utilizing the Lightning Network and PaaS solutions like LQwD

One of the most dependable characteristics of the cryptocurrency market is its volatility. Despite seeing an all-time high in November 2021, the current cryptocurrency market cap has lingered in the US $1.24 to US $1.31 trillion range struggling to break beyond this limited barrier. On May 24, 2022, the closing price of Bitcoin again fell below US $30,000 – dropping more than 3% in 24 hours. “The crypto market struggled to stay in the green as sellers dominated the market to open the week. Tether has paid $10 billion in withdrawals since the crypto market, which indicates large-scale liquidations across the crypto market by the investors to recalibrate their portfolio,” BuyUcoin CEO Shivam Thakral stated (https://ccw.fm/uBVEC). “The crypto market is expected to stay in a bear phase for some time, and most the investors will stay in a wait and watch mode.”

Not all companies are in the “watch and wait” mode when it comes to Bitcoin or the Lightning Network. LQwD FinTech (TSX.V: LQWD) (OTCQB: LQWDF), a financial technology company focused on creating enterprise-grade infrastructure to drive bitcoin adoption, is still leveraging the…

The Lightning Network is a layer 2 payment protocol layered on the blockchain of the native cryptocurrency it facilitates – in this instance, Bitcoin. The Lightning Network comprises nodes that are connected via various channels. These channels are created when Bitcoin is used as collateral for the payment transfers. The eventual goal is to create a connected network that gets payments from the point of origin to the end user in as few “jumps” as possible. The benefits of using the Lightning Network include lower fees and faster transaction settlement times. The Bitcoin blockchain does not have the capacity to facilitate thousands of payments at one time, making the scaling of the Lightning Network even more important as acceptance of cryptocurrency rises.

The Bitcoin Lightning Network continues to grow, despite the volatility of the actual market. As of the most recent reports (March 2022), the capacity of the Lightning Network currently exceeds 3,539 BTC. This means that anyone looking to send a payment of less than the capacity can be facilitated using the Lightning Network – as more nodes and channels are created, the capacity will only increase. The current estimate is that the Network will continue to grow by over 30% annualized. To follow the Lightning Network, visit the Lightning Network Search and Analysis Engine at https://1ml.com/.

Despite Falling Numbers, Bitcoin Investors Hopeful Crypto Will Bounce Back in the Future; Continual Changes in Technology Keep the Volatile Industry Moving Forward

May 26, 2022 08:50:00
  • Bitcoin has seen an overall decrease of 57% since November 2021 (an all-time high) and a YTD decrease of 37%
  • Investor Mark Cuban tweeted that he believes cryptocurrency is in a lull period, much like the early internet, and expects the industry to bounce back – especially for those utilizing smart contracts for business productivity and profitability
  • Political and economically driven, green energy initiatives for mining Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are rising – companies like Canaan Inc. have already begun implementing the necessary changes to strive for carbon-free emissions
  • With blockchain fees high, Robinhood has created a new Web 3.0 wallet, which it plans to have available by the end of 2022 to customers, specifically designed to absolve the fees, making it a free wallet to use – one of the first of its kind

Despite reaching an all-time high in November 2021, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have seen major shifts in value almost daily in recent weeks. According to analysts and market experts, there is a long way to go before recovery from the current crash starts.

“While BTC’s price indicates that we’ve still got a long way to go before a rally or an early recovery, data from glassnode showed that addresses with at least 0.01 BTC passed the 10 million mark for the first time. While we already know that institutions made…

Human beings have always been attracted by the possibility of making a quick buck, and the volatility of  cryptocurrencies and NFTs is too alluring for members of Generation Z. Gen Z refers to individuals born in the mid ‘90s to the early 2000s.

As the years in which these people were born suggest, Gen Z grew up at a time when the proliferation of technology was at its peak. This means that these kids grew up playing video games and meeting their…

What Ethereum 2.0 Signifies for the Ethereum Blockchain, Investors, and Established Miners such as BIT Mining Ltd. (NYSE: BTCM)

  • BIT Mining Ltd. believes the proof-of-work and proof-of-stake systems will coexist

Having lured software developers who built decentralized applications on top of the network, Ethereum has been accounting for the vast majority of total transaction volume within the decentralized finance (“DeFi”) space. While desirable, this market share catalyzed network congestion that has continuously pushed transaction fees (known as gas prices within the crypto market) upwards, slowed the transaction speeds, and led to the rise of competing blockchains. 

According to the latest statistics from YCharts, the average Ethereum gas price was $28.80 on May 15, down from a high of $474.57 on May 1 and $81.30 a year ago. The figures represent a sharp rise from a range of between $2 and $4 in late 2020. Even at its cheapest, Ethereum was still more expensive than…

CryptoNewsBreaks – HouseBit Corp. Unveils New Ownership, Occupancy Model with Completion of First Fully Tokenized Property in Miami

May 24, 2022 13:54:43

HouseBit, based in Miami, has completed the first fully digital, real estate tokenization on a property in downtown Miami; the transaction used cryptographic decentralized blockchain technology. Miami-based International Realty Group, a Florida- licensed, full-service boutique real estate brokerage specializing in the luxury market, was also involved in the transaction. According to the announcement, the tokenization involved the combination of HouseBit’s patent-pending technology and a land trust created specifically for the property, which issued 1,000 ownership tokens, including a single occupancy non-fungible token (“NFT”), which provides the right to occupy the property. The other ownership tokens represented  proportional ownership in the property. This is the first time a Florida land trust has been created for decentralized ownership and occupancy rights. The company noted that ownership tokens and the occupancy token will be available on Uniswap and OpenSea beginning today, with full descriptions available on the Multiple Listing Service. “Real estate is really the last digital frontier, and we have been inspired by the mayor of Miami’s support for the crypto industry and innovative applications of blockchain technology. This is why we chose Miami as our headquarters,” said HouseBit cofounder and senior vice president of corporate affairs Lawry Trevor-Deutsch in the press release. “We are very excited that the public will finally be able to reap all the benefits of Web 3.0 for real estate including simplicity, security and the ability to enter the real estate market at virtually any financial level. Our goal is to democratize real estate and allow people to have full control over their real estate holdings.”
