Japanischer Riese SBI Holdings plant die Gründung eines gemeinsamen Cryptocurrency-Ventures

Der japanische Finanzkonglomerat SBI Holdings plant die Gründung eines Kryptowährungs-Joint-Ventures.

Der japanische Finanzkonglomerat SBI Holdings enthüllte, dass er die Gründung eines Kryptowährungs-Joint-Ventures wie bei Profit Secret plant, das als eine der wichtigsten Einnahmequellen des Unternehmens dienen soll.

SBI erweitert Krypto-Dienstleistungen

Wie Reuters am Montag (15. Februar 2021) berichtete, führte SBI-Gründer und CEO Yoshitaka Kitao Gespräche mit internationalen Finanzunternehmen, um das neue Krypto-Geschäft zu gründen. Die jüngste Entwicklung war Teil von SBIs Plänen, das Krypto-Geschäft auszubauen.

Das Unternehmen ist bereits seit 2018 in der Krypto-Branche aktiv. Wie von CryptoPotato bereits im Dezember 2020 berichtet, erwarb SBI B2C2, einen in Großbritannien ansässigen Kryptowährungsliquiditätsanbieter. Vor dem B2C2-Übernahme-Deal kaufte der japanische Finanzriese eine lokale Krypto-Börse, Tao Tao. SBI startete auch einen Krypto-Lending-Service im November, der es Benutzern ermöglichte, BTC, ETH und XRP zu leihen.

Darüber hinaus sagte Kitao, dass das Unternehmen auch nach groß angelegten Fusionen und Übernahmen Ausschau hält und fügte hinzu:

“Um die Nummer eins in der Welt zu werden, ist es unsere Wahl, ein führendes Unternehmen zu kaufen oder eine Allianz mit großen globalen Unternehmen zu schaffen. Unsere M&A-Strategie wird nicht so sein, dass wir Minderheitsbeteiligungen an vielen Unternehmen eingehen.”

Kitao sprach über das neue Geschäft und sagte, dass es einer der Haupteinkommensbringer des Unternehmens sein werde. Der SBI-Topmanager enthüllte auch, dass mindestens zwei Deals in Bezug auf das geplante Krypto-Joint-Venture-Geschäft zur Diskussion stehen. Kitao verriet jedoch nicht die Namen der möglichen Partner.

Kryptowährungsinvestitionen sind jetzt unvermeidlich, sagt der SBI-CEO

Der SBI-CEO wies auch auf die zunehmenden institutionellen Investitionen in Bitcoin hin. Laut Kitao waren die Zeiten vorbei, in denen die Menschen nur in Aktien und Anleihen investierten. Der SBI-Chef fügte hinzu:

“Institutionelle Investoren, vor allem Hedge-Fonds, haben vor kurzem begonnen, in Kryptowährungen zu investieren…Nicht nur institutionelle Investoren, sondern auch Elon Musk hat.”

Wie zuvor von CryptoPotato berichtet, hat Tesla 1,5 Milliarden Dollar in Bitcoin gekauft, mit möglichen Plänen, das Flaggschiff-Krypto als Zahlungsmittel für seine Produkte einzusetzen.

SBI gehört zu den wenigen Unternehmen, die Unterstützung für Ripple in dessen Rechtsstreit mit der U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) gezeigt haben. Laut dem SBI-CEO wurde XRP in Japan nicht als Wertpapier betrachtet, und er fügte hinzu, dass er optimistisch sei, dass Ripple den Fall gewinnen würde.

Expertos: las salidas de oro están impulsando a Bitcoin al alza

Las perspectivas del oro parecen atenuarse a medida que el brillo de Bitcoin.

Según varios expertos, una posible razón del notable aumento reciente de los precios de Bitcoin son las salidas masivas de inversores de otra cobertura de inflación popular: el oro

El oro al contado se desvaneció durante la semana pasada, cayendo un 4,62% ​​a 1.857 dólares. El activo anteriormente había estado aumentando al unísono con Bitcoin Loophole, que aumentó más del 40% desde los mínimos de $ 28,000 la semana pasada .

En un tweet el viernes, Charlie Morris, fundador y CIO de ByteTree Asset Management, dijo que el retroceso del oro podría atribuirse a que los inversores se mudaron a Bitcoin:

Del mismo modo, a principios de semana, el presentador de Mad Money de CNBC, Jim Cramer, dijo que las salidas de los ETF de oro “van todas a las criptomonedas”. El seguimiento de las entradas y salidas del fideicomiso de inversión de Bitcoin de Grayscale y los ETF de oro respaldan esta afirmación, ya que Grayscale ha eclipsado al oro:

Los movimientos podrían ser una señal del creciente estatus de Bitcoin como una clase de activo legítimo. El oro y Bitcoin han estado vinculados durante mucho tiempo, ya que ambos se consideran una forma de proteger la riqueza contra la inflación y la incertidumbre macroeconómica, pero si los movimientos de precios durante la última semana son una indicación, Bitcoin puede estar ganando la carrera narrativa.

En una entrevista con Bloomberg, el director de ingresos de Coinshares, Frank Spiteri, dijo que la narrativa que rodea a Bitcoin como cobertura de inflación está ganando terreno “frente a un entorno de política monetaria muy poco convencional”.

Nisbah Capital, Saudi Arabia invests in Tezos

In a statement released today by Nisbah Capital, a subsidiary of Taibah Valley located in Saudi Arabia, we learn that the company will join the Tezos ecosystem, being among the first companies to support this blockchain in the Far East region.

Tezos (XTZ) is a blockchain that uses the Proof of Stake (PoS) protocol, and as Crypto Cash such users can stack their tokens. Because of the complexity involved, users often delegate their tokens to known companies – also known as bakers – who have everything they need to run the network.

In fact, the minimum to become a baker is to block 8,000 XTZs, or over $20,000 at the current price.

With this announcement, Nisbah Capital intends to operate actively on this blockchain having all the requirements and providing its users with a reference point to use Tezos.

Among other things, a subsidiary of Nisbah Capital, Exaion, had already become a baker in October last year and already has a functioning system in place.

This country is certainly very interested in crypto and blockchain, and last year there was already talk of launching a pilot cryptocurrency for banks, as if it were a centralised crypto or stablecoin.

Nisbah Capital and the collaboration with Tezos
A Taibah Valley specialist, Raghad Abdulghani commented on the news as follows:

“By becoming a Tezos Baker, we see an opportunity to spread awareness of cryptocurrencies and how they work, and to attract different companies to recognise the potential of the MENA region. Furthermore, we believe that the baking will help build the future of Tezos blockchain in the region.”

In contrast, Waleed Rassuli of Tezos Gulf, explained that collaboration is the best way to spread the technology:

“This collaboration with Taibah Valley will be a major boost to stimulate the adoption of decentralised blockchain-based technologies in the Middle East. Given the growing number of enterprise bakers in the Tezos ecosystem, we think having one in the Middle East will give a boost to local blockchain projects in this region.”

Blockstack zegt dat STX een niet-beveiligde asset zal worden.

Sleutel afhaalmaaltijden

  • Blockstack zegt dat zijn STX-munten niet langer kunnen vallen onder de categorie van effecten onder de Amerikaanse wet.
  • Die verandering zou van kracht moeten worden na de volgende netwerkupgrade van het platform, waardoor het bedrijf minder controle heeft.
  • De SEC heeft hierover geen openbaar commentaar gegeven.

Blockstack heeft verklaard dat zijn Stacks (STX) token in de VS na de volgende upgrade van het platform niet meer als een veiligheid mag worden beschouwd.

Stacks’ Wijziging van de juridische status

Op 7 december publiceerde Blockstack een juridisch memorandum op zijn blog, waarin hij beweert dat de Stacks (STX) van het bedrijf misschien niet langer een veiligheidsactivum is onder de Amerikaanse wet.

Dat betekent een verschuiving ten opzichte van de vorige wettelijke status van de munt. In 2019 voerde Blockstack het allereerste SEC-gekwalificeerde aanbod van crypto-munten in de VS uit en haalde $23 miljoen op bij beleggers. Ten tijde van de ICO erkende het bedrijf dat STX-munten in de categorie van effecten vielen volgens de Amerikaanse wet- en regelgeving.

Het bedrijf beweert echter dat de aanstaande STX 2.0 blockchain upgrade de juridische status van de netwerkmunt zal beïnvloeden. Kortom, het opgewaardeerde netwerk zal voldoende gedecentraliseerd zijn zodat geen enkele entiteit een controlerende rol zal spelen op de nieuwe blokketen.

Vanwege de “decentrale upgrade” zullen STX-munten volgens het bedrijf niet langer worden beschouwd als waardepapieren op basis van de Howey-test en de bijbehorende criteria.

“Bij de lancering van Stacks 2.0, Blockstack PBC verwacht dat noch het, noch iemand anders een essentiële leidinggevende rol zal spelen onder Howey omdat de werking en het bestuur van de Stacks 2.0-blokketen zo diffuus en gedecentraliseerd zal zijn,” zei Muneeb Ali, mede-oprichter van Blockstack in de aankondiging.

Bredere implicaties voor de Crypto-bedrijven van de V.S.

Het nieuws is opmerkelijk omdat geen enkel ander bedrijf tot nu toe heeft geprobeerd de status van een cryptomuntje onder de Amerikaanse effectenwetgeving te veranderen.

Marco Santori, Chief Legal Officer van Kraken, zegt dat het incident “ongekend” is en markeert de “eerste ooit [transformatie] van een penning van een effect naar een niet-beveiliging”.

Het uiteindelijke oordeel ligt in handen van de SEC, die nog geen publiek commentaar heeft gegeven op de aard van de STX-munten. Er zijn echter bredere implicaties van de juridische memo van Blockstack voor andere crypto-bedrijven. Een van die penningen is XRP, dat het onderwerp is geweest van een lange controverse over zijn veiligheidsstatus.

Als het besluit van Blockstack door de SEC wordt geratificeerd, zou het de weg kunnen vrijmaken voor verschillende andere gecentraliseerde crypto-projecten om meer in overeenstemming te zijn met de Amerikaanse federale effectenwetgeving.

Bitcoin rises to a new all-time high – gold, however, experiences massive devaluation. Coincidence?

 

In the last four months gold has lost $4 trillion in market valuation. Bitcoin, in turn, has gained about $180 billion over the same period.

Both gold and Crypto Bull have been the beneficiaries of the Federal Reserve’s aggressive monetary easing policy. The precious metal reached its record high of $2,075.82 an ounce on August 7, 2020.

But it could not hold the peak. A wave of profit selling occurred and corrected the XAU/USD price by up to 14.97 percent.

Bitcoin, on the other hand, also saw local sell-offs, but continued to rise. On December 1, 2020, the flagship crypto currency reached a new record high of $19,873 per token (Coinbase data). The upward trend was reminiscent of earlier studies that showed a delayed positive correlation between gold and Bitcoin.

Bitcoin has increased by more than 400 percent since March 2020.

Does this mean that Bitcoin will also suffer the same fate as gold after it reached its all-time high? Opinions differ on this.

The value memory thesis

According to JP Morgan Chase & Co., family offices are actively selling their gold-based exchange-traded funds to invest in crypto-currencies. So far, they have sold 93 tons of precious metal worth around $5 billion. At the same time, the capital inflow into the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust has doubled.

The study makes gold and Bitcoin look like competing assets. This means that investors are more likely to switch their value storage from physical to digital, which would divert a good portion of the capital from the so-called obsolete markets.

Dan Tapeiro, a macro-investor who is invested in both gold and Bitcoin, believes this is possible. Tapeiro:

“$2 trillion worth of gold has been wiped away in the last 4 months. No, not everything has gone into Bitcoin, which has gained $180 billion over the same period, but a 10% rate would still be impressive”.

Charlie Morris, Chief Investment Officer at ByteTree Asset Management, also believes that money has flowed from the gold markets to Bitcoin. However, he also recalls that platinum – a commodity rival – has also been on an upward trend in recent sessions and offers more than one alternative to the yellow metal.

“The gold market has been quite hot this summer, so it is not surprising that the price is falling a little bit on the way to the end of the year,” Morris said. “Some money has flowed out of gold, perhaps it has flowed into platinum because of the green movement, and obviously some of it has flowed into Bitcoin because of all this excitement.

Problems with Bitcoin’s correction

Time and again, one reads about reports that Bitcoin would reflect gold – but with a delay. In fact, certain technical fractals signal that BTC would test $25,000 before going down again, as gold did after the August high.
Bitcoin-gold correlation since September 2018 (as of last week).

As the chart above shows, the correlation of Bitcoin to gold signals that Bitcoin would extend its upward trend towards the 1.138 Fibonacci mark. Now, all of the analysts mentioned above believe that gold could recover.

This means that despite a massive downward correction, Bitcoin may be doing the same. Morris explains:

“Bitcoin and gold are both on the right side of the inflationary trajectory. They are both assets that will protect investors from the massive fiat currency devaluation trade that is coming.

Le Galaxy Digital de Mike Novogratz lancera le fonds Bitcoin au Canada

Galaxy Digital, la société de gestion de crypto-investissement fondée par le taureau des bitcoins Mike Novogratz, a révélé son intention de lancer un fonds de bitcoins au Canada.

Dans un communiqué publié le 16 novembre, Galaxy Digital a déclaré qu’elle s’était associée avec le principal gestionnaire de fonds canadien CI Global Asset Management pour le lancement.

Le fonds s’appelle CI Galaxy Bitcoin Code Fund et sera ouvert au grand public. Galaxy Digital, qui se concentre principalement sur les investisseurs d’entreprise, a depuis reçu l’approbation des autorités de régulation des valeurs mobilières pour son prospectus préliminaire d’introduction en bourse, a-t-il ajouté.

Selon l’annonce, le fonds est “un fonds d’investissement à capital fixe” qui investira directement dans les bitcoins (BTC) et dont le prix sera fixé en fonction de l’indice Bloomberg Galaxy Bitcoin. L’indice est conçu pour mesurer la performance d’un bitcoin unique négocié en dollars américains.

L’introduction en bourse sera composée de parts de classe A et de classe F à un prix de 10 dollars chacune. À son tour, Galaxy Digital attribuera à l’acheteur l’équivalent en bitcoin de ses propres avoirs. Elle a déclaré que les unités “sont offertes au mieux dans chacune des provinces et territoires du Canada”.

Galaxy Digital sera le sous-conseiller du fonds CI Galaxy Bitcoin, responsable de l’exécution de toutes les activités de négociation de bitcoin. CI Global agira en tant que gestionnaire du fonds.

Comme l’a rapporté news.Bitcoin.com il y a quelques jours, Galaxy Digital a acquis deux sociétés de crypto – Drawbridge Lending et Blue Fire Capital – en prévision d’une “plus grande vague de demande institutionnelle” de bitcoin.

Au troisième trimestre 2020, la société a fait état d’une augmentation de 75 % des volumes échangés, en glissement annuel, pour atteindre 1,4 milliard de dollars.

Les actifs sous gestion ont atteint 407 millions de dollars, dont 82 millions de dollars en fonds passifs BTC et indiciels. Le bénéfice net du troisième trimestre s’est élevé à 44,3 millions de dollars, contre une perte de 68,2 millions de dollars l’année précédente, en grande partie grâce à une forte hausse du prix de la BTC.

Bitcoin price prediction by macro guru Raoul Pal sees BTC at $ 1,000,000

Raoul Pal, co-founder and CEO of the Real Vision Group, believes that the Bitcoin price will experience a massive upswing in the next few years. BTC is, in his opinion, a “supermassive black hole” that will devour gold, NASDAQ, banks, bonds and commodities.

You can find out here and now which price target he considers realistic within which period and how he justifies his Bitcoin price forecast.

Bitcoin price of $ 1 million due to absolute dominance of BTC

The global macro strategist thinks that he thinks Bitcoin investor will also outperform the G4 central banks, silver and leading companies like Apple and Amazon. This would of course have an extremely positive effect on the Bitcoin course. He tweeted :

Bitcoin’s performance is SO dominant and SO all-encompassing that it will soak up and spit out every single narrative of other assets. Never before in my career have I seen a trade so dominant that it makes almost no sense to hold other assets.

Pal predicts that the Bitcoin price will reach $ 1 million within five years. The former hedge fund manager at Goldman Sachs believes Bitcoin is the best chance of his career.

I understand that sounds a little evangelical, but I am struggling to see it differently at the moment. The supermassive black hole will suck it all up. Again, this is the best trade / investment and future opportunity I EVER found and it has the power to give that little guy a chance to do his part in creating wealth before it hits Wall Street does. Reach for it.

L’impennata di Bitcoin a $ 12K continua mentre ci avviciniamo a un accordo di stimolo COVID-19

Lunedì 12 ottobre, l’impennata di Bitcoin verso il livello di $ 12.000 continua mentre continuano i colloqui tra i legislatori di Washington e l’amministrazione Trump sul prossimo pacchetto di stimolo fiscale COVID-19.

Dal 23 settembre, Bitcoin ha avuto una buona corsa, passando da un minimo di $ 10.166 a un massimo di $ 11.485 di sabato (10 ottobre), ovvero un’impennata di quasi il 13% rispetto all’USD in meno di tre settimane.

Questo aumento dei prezzi è stato principalmente alimentato da due cose:

L’indebolimento del dollaro USA

Dal 25 settembre, l’ indice del dollaro USA (DXY) è sceso da 94,72 a 93,10 (dove era il 12 ottobre al momento della scrittura).

Ottimismo su un importante accordo di stimolo

Negli ultimi due mesi, siamo passati da una proposta di soccorso COVID-19 da $ 1 trilione da parte dei repubblicani del Senato il 27 luglio a una proposta da $ 1,8 trilioni del presidente Trump il 9 ottobre. Poiché quest’ultima offerta è di soli $ 400 miliardi in meno dei $ 2,2 trilioni richiesti dai Democratici alla Camera e dal presidente Trump hanno un disperato bisogno di ottenere un accordo e far approvare il disegno di legge dal Congresso degli Stati Uniti prima delle elezioni presidenziali statunitensi del mese prossimo, sembra che ogni giorno ci stiamo avvicinando a un accordo.

Questo ottimismo ha aiutato sia le azioni statunitensi che il Bitcoin a salire dal 23 settembre. Tra il 23 settembre e il 12 ottobre, il prezzo del Bitcoin è passato da $ 10.166 a $ 11.490 (alle 09:55 EDT), con un guadagno del 13,02% rispetto all’USD. Nello stesso periodo, l’S & P 500 è passato da 3236,92 a 3501,28 (alle 09:33 EDT), con un guadagno dell’8,12%.

Pochi minuti fa, nonostante lo stato confuso dei negoziati di stimolo a Washington, si è aperta la borsa americana; alle 09:40 EDT, il Dow, l’S & P 500 e il Nasdaq Composite sono tutti in territorio verde, rispettivamente dello 0,43%, dello 0,85% e dell’1,59%.

Oggi, FXStreet ha detto questo sull’indice del dollaro USA: “Mentre al di sotto della SMA a 200 giorni, oggi a 96,92, si prevede che prevarrà la visione negativa del dollaro”.

Con le elezioni presidenziali statunitensi a sole tre settimane di distanza, dovremmo vedere ulteriori progressi nei colloqui di stimolo questa settimana.

Domani (13 ottobre), Apple dovrebbe annunciare i nuovi modelli di iPhone di quest’anno; questo dovrebbe dare una bella spinta al settore tecnologico e aiutarlo a guidare ancora una volta il resto del mercato azionario statunitense al rialzo.

E poiché Bitcoin è stato visto come un asset a rischio da marzo, se il mercato azionario statunitense sale questa settimana, con o senza alcun ulteriore indebolimento del dollaro USA, è probabile che anche il prezzo del Bitcoin aumenterà.

3 years after its ICO, the Filecoin project (FIL) announces the launch of its mainnet

Filecoin (FIL), a decentralized and open source storage network, is expected to launch its mainnet on October 15. This launch comes more than 3 years after the platform raised more than $ 250 million during an ICO.

Long wait for Filecoin comes to an end

The Filecoin digital file storage protocol is finally coming to a launch date for its mainnet . It will be put online at block 148 888 , or on October 15, according to estimates.

Initially, Filecoin’s mainnet was supposed to launch in March of this year, but has been repeatedly delayed due to difficulties caused by the Covid-19 crisis.

Designed as a decentralized alternative to Amazon Web Services , Dropbox or even Google Drive , Filecoin allows its users to buy and sell unused storage in exchange for FIL tokens , the native cryptocurrency of the protocol.

Thus, the Filecoin protocol allows your files to be hosted on other people’s computers instead of sending them to centralized servers. In addition, all files and information sent by Filecoin are encrypted to maintain user privacy.

“[…] We have built something amazing together over the past 3 years. Launching a blockchain is like launching a rocket, and it took an entire interplanetary community to get there. Thank you for being a part of this epic journey! Said the Filecoin team.

Indeed, the public launch of Filecoin comes more than 3 years after a colossal Initial Coin Offering (ICO) of nearly $ 258 million , which was closed in 30 minutes due to its unprecedented success.

Filecoin is already receiving significant support from the crypto-sphere

According to his blog post announcing the arrival of the mainnet, the Filecoin project attracted more than 400 miners this month for its “Space Race” testing phase . During this testnet event, the measured network storage capacity is impressive:

“In the past 4 weeks, over 400 miners from 34 countries and 6 continents have shipped an astonishing storage capacity of over 325 PiB [Pebibyte] into the Filecoin network. That’s enough space for 90 million 1080p movies, 1,400 full copies of Wikipedia, or 7 times the total of mankind’s written works (in all languages) from the beginning of history to the present day. days, ”says the team.

In addition, the Filecoin ecosystem is already quite complete, with more than 85 organizations currently collaborating for the development of the protocol : creation of applications, development tools, infrastructures and others. To date, over 230 projects and over 1,000 backers have turned to Filecoin.

Around 3.5 million FIL tokens will be distributed to those who participated in these testnets. As of this writing, FIL tokens exchanged through an IOU (I Owe You) fetch a price of $ 18 .

Altcoin seems to have a bright future, the Filecoin network being supported in particular by major miners based in China. They participated massively in the various testnets of the project and would represent more than 85% of the storage space of the network.

As the 5th largest ICO in history , the expectation around the functionality of the Filecoin network is high. The FIL token serving as an engine for storing files with third parties, it is a real utility. It remains to be seen whether or not Filecoin will find its audience.

Vitryssland Bitcoin Community växer när protester fortsätter

Det verkar som om protester händer över hela världen för sent inklusive i landet Vitryssland . Nationen har lidit av politisk oro sedan dess presidentval nyligen , och en del vänder sig till bitcoin för att säkerställa att de har vad de behöver när de fortsätter protestagendan.

Vitryssland är centrum för protester … och Bitcoin-kärlek

Saker började i relativt liten skala. Protesterna började den 8 augusti, då en stadsanställd vid namn Maria i Pinsk gick till en vallokal för att avge sin röst i valet. Hon bar ett vitt hårband på handleden som ett tecken på att hon skulle rösta mot landets sittande president. Resten av hennes medarbetare på stadshuset tog inte alltför vänligt emot gesten och befriade henne från sina arbetsuppgifter.

Men saker stannade inte där. Valet slutade med att den nuvarande presidenten Alexander Lukashenko tjänade ytterligare en tid som landets ledare, och många tror att valet var riggat och att han inte är den verkliga vinnaren. Flera fabriker har stängts av i protest, medan flera brottsbekämpande myndigheter – snarare än att arbeta för att bryta upp protesterna – har avgått från sina tjänster.

Under tiden behövde människor som Maria snabbt hitta nya jobb. Att bli avskedad av politiska skäl i Vitryssland innebär ofta att man inte kan hitta nytt arbete, särskilt inte i sin nuvarande by, men strax efter fick Maria reda på en ny ideell organisation som kallas Bitcoin Superstar. Företaget erbjuder ekonomisk hjälp för att hjälpa personer som är involverade i protester. Maria ansökte snabbt och fick bitcoin för första gången i sitt liv.

Teamet bakom ideell organisation visade henne vad hon behövde göra för att använda det. De hjälpte henne att ladda ner en digital plånbok och lärde henne hur man konverterar pengarna till fiat. Hon kunde räkna ut saker ganska snabbt, och de pengar hon tjänade räckte för att hon skulle klara sig i några månader när hon letade efter nytt arbete. Hon kunde till och med köpa en ny dator för att hjälpa henne i sin nya strävan efter en position i IT-världen.

Att få saker och ting igång

BYSOL startades ursprungligen av flera tekniska chefer och samhällsaktivister. Företaget har samlat in mer än 2 miljoner dollar i donationer under de senaste 30 dagarna, och det ser inte ut som om företagets popularitet går torr när som helst snart. Företaget gräver ut bitcoin till de som letar efter hjälp som ett sätt att hålla sin identitet tyst. Bitcoin kan inte spåras som kontanter är, och därmed är användarnas identitet mycket tystare.

Dessutom har företaget registrerat sig i andra delar av Europa snarare än Vitryssland, för att göra detta skulle säkert ha inneburit att pengar som överlämnats till användare skulle konfiskeras av landets regering.
