Alternative Cryptocurrency Regulation Bills Introduced in Ukraine and Russia

A draft bill that leaves crypto-to-crypto trading outside the state regulation has been filed this week in the Ukrainian parliament. The news was announced during BlockchainUA conference in Kyiv by Ukrainian MP Alexey Mushak. The legislative proposal has been prepared in cooperation with representatives of the cryptocurrency industry and signed by 23 MPs of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine’s Parliament). Notably, the document defines the term “virtual assets” and makes a distinction between cryptocurrencies and tokens. Cryptocurrency is described as a virtual asset that can function as a means of exchange and can store value. Tokenized assets, on the other hand, certify property or other rights of their holders that correspond to the obligations of an issuer. The bill’s authors also propose a preferential tax regime for the industry with incomes and profits of both private individuals and corporate entities being subject to 5 percent tax until 2024. As such, the document opposes the idea of

Greek Supreme Court Approves Extradition of Alleged Bitcoin Exchange Owner to Russia

The Supreme Court in Greece has ruled on Friday that the alleged owner of the now defunct Bitcoin exchange BTC-e Alexander Vinnik can be extradited to Russia, instead of the US or France, countries which also requested the his extradition. According to Greek Reporter, Vinnik’s extradition to Russia, however, is now in the hands of the Greek Justice Minister who can decline to sign, although state officials rarely overrule justice systems on such decisions. Vinnik was arrested in July 2017 in Greece after U.S. prosecutors accused him of supervising BTC-e which allegedly helped criminals launder over $9 billion. On the same day Greek authorities were arresting Vinnik, a team of researchers presented findings at the Black Hat USA 2017 security conference, revealing that 95 percent of all ransomware payments were cashed out and converted into fiat currency through BTC-e exchange.

BitGo Boosted by Approval to Become a Regulated Cryptocurrency Custodian

Crypto security startup BitGo has today received green light from the South Dakota Division of Banking to act as a qualified custodian for digital assets, meaning it can now offer institutional clients a regulated storage solution for cryptocurrencies. Due to concerns about security, custody is often seen as a missing part of the puzzle for the uptake of cryptocurrencies among institutional investors. Many existing storage offerings are provided by crypto exchanges without the backing of a traditional custodian. BitGo has been looking to solve this issue throughout 2018, with its own developments and the failed acquisition of Kingdom Trust, a digital asset custodian with roughly $12 billion in assets under storage. Now the Palo Alto-based startup has been given a major boost as BitGo Trust Company is becoming the first qualified custodian purpose-built for storing digital assets. In an announcement, Mike Belshe, BitGo CEO, said: “Custody has been the missing piece of cryptocurrency

New Research Says Blockchain Can Add $1 Trillion to World Trade By 2028

According to a newly released report from the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Bain & Company, distributed ledger technologies (DLT) could add as much as $1 trillion to global trade finance over the next ten years. Titled ‘Trade Tech – A New Age for Trade and Supply Chain Finance’, the report highlights the economic benefits of integrating DLTs into existing supply chains. According to the researchers, an additional $1 trillion in financing will be added to global supply chains by 2028 as a direct result of increased DLT integration. This figure represents new capital that would have otherwise been missed out had DLT never existed. “Distributed ledger and other technological innovations promise groundbreaking advances in trade and supply chain finance by reducing costs and ease of use,” the report reads. International trade and global value chains have been critical for both the wealth of nations and the reduction of geopolitical tensions. Yet, archaic processes pose a significant

Jonas Schnelli: Additional Layer Solutions Will Increase Value of Bitcoin in the Long Term

What is the nature of privacy? Is it our basic right or a privilege? If it is our fundamental freedom, do we have to fight for it? That is the question. Most people prefer easy options to avoid such crucial fights. For years it was only cypherpunks who have tried to develop technologies which could ensure one’s privacy even under the tough government pressure. Now we have a clear vision of how to get there. Additional layers and micropayments could transform Bitcoin into a trustless worldwide P2P payment system with incorporated privacy right. It may sound like utopia or even a threat to the established world order, but so was with trustless digital money. Now we’re here. Technologies have already changed a lot in terms of how we treat and exchange information, and how we manage our finances. Why can’t code create a total privacy for everyone? Nevertheless the society’s self-awareness is vital to success of the privacy revolution, because for now most people obediently allow third
