SHIBA Inu Soars As It Gets Ready For Coinbase Pro Listing

Is 2021 the year of the meme coin?

Of course, it is not the year that this type of crypto was first created, but many believe it is the year when these coins hit their stride. For instance, dogecoin has hit the trading headlines more than once over the past 12 months and that’s not just because Elon Musk happened to mention it on a very popular weekly comedy sketch show.

Now, shiba inu (SHIB) seems to be having its moment, with prices of the crypto jumping around 30 percent after Coinbase Pro announced that the crypto will be listed on its platform in just a matter of days.

According to Coinbase Pro, trading will begin on or after 9am Pacific Time (PT) Thursday June 17, if liquidity conditions are met. At the time of writing, it is listed at a price of around $0.0000092 and its market cap is $3.6 billion.

Coinbase Pro also announced that it will be adding both chiliz (CHZ) and the keep network (KEEP). Both CHZ and KEEP saw significant increases in the 24 hours after the announcement. Both CHZ and SHIB will not be available to New York residents.

This announcement comes in the same month that DOGE was listed on the platform. Coinbase Pro recently also added trading support for a number of tokens, including polkadot (DOT), gitcoin (GTC), enzyme token (MLN), amp (AMP), and internet computer (ICP).

Its launch date was December 10, 2018 and ever since then, the trading platform has gone from strength to strength, now being considered one of the go-to places for derivitace product options.

A constant look towards the future and a aim to expand its product options have helped its growth. For instance, USDT-margined Swaps, Coin-margined swaps and futures are among the services that are central to Huobi’s offering currently.

This is demonstrated by USDT-margined Swaps accounting for almost 23 percent of the trading volume of all units as of December 3rd. Huobi’s coin-margined futures trading, which includes 13 major crypto assets, also has had a unilateral turnover of $1,907bn since its launch.

Not only that, but Huobi’s coin-margined swaps is the no.1 coin-margined swaps market globally.

Its trading volume of USDT margined perpetual swaps is also growing, with a cumulative total of over $60.5 billion as of December 4th, 2020. Earlier this year, Huobi further demonstrated their ability to offer an excellent service, by launching USDT-quoted options whereby users could trade without worrying about the risk of liquidation.

A statement from Huobi aimed to explain their success, citing the following: “The fact that Huobi Futures has achieved this success in just two years is largely due to its continuous efforts to launch innovative products that continuously enhance the user experience while ensuring that users can trade securely, consistently, and at a low cost.

This has a profound impact on two aspects for users. Since Huobi Futures started the operation in 2018, it has been able to provide users with a safe, stable and low-cost trading experience.”

Upfiring Dapp Uniswap Integration

Preliminary model of Uniswap integration into the Upfiring dapp

Funding your Upfiring wallet, obtaining UFR to use within the dapp, or converting your UFR earnings to Ethereum/other tokens is going to become a smooth experience that users will be able to do using their Upfiring wallet in the dapp. In another effort to further decentralize the dapp and remove the power that centralized exchanges have over this project, Uniswap (a decentralized exchange) will be integrated directly into the dappThis is another huge step towards the immutability of the Upfiring network — if the Uniswap.org website goes down for any reason, you will still be able to use the smart contracts within the Upfiring dapp to convert to and from UFR with 100% uptime.


The Upfiring Blockchain — moving to our own smart contract network with a bridge to the Ethereum network

PumaPay is paving the way for mass crypto adoption

PumaPay is one of the most innovative providers of a fully decentralized blockchain-based payment system. Since their establishment, the company has maintained that its vision is to be one of the frontrunners in supporting mass crypto adoption. To date, PumaPay continues to refine their technology, adding new features that are slowly helping their vision come to fruition. The latest developments are no different.

With their new hybrid solution, PumaPay differentiates itself from other payment service providers. Combining crypto with traditional finance, their service now enables payments to be made and received in any currency, with the PMA token acting as a means of value transfer, by virtually anyone from merchants of all varieties to end-users. With measures in place to ensure zero exposure to volatility for all parties and easy onboarding and offboarding to crypto the PumaPay solution offers maximum utility to all.

PumaPay CEO, Yoav Dror, said: “By providing innovative and much-needed developments ready to be utilized in the emerging crypto space, we bring the community one step closer to mass crypto adoption. As of today, we have managed to close the loop and offer a fully comprehensive, blockchain-based payment solution that mitigates widespread concerns regarding accessibility, regulation, volatility and usability.”

With that in mind, let’s review some of PumaPay’s groundbreaking contributions:

· The heart of their PullPayment Protocol; a variety of customizable billing models, such as their innovative Recurring and Auto-Up Schemes. Utilizing smart contract architecture, these billing models were designed to offer maximum utility to businesses in their daily transactions.

· A fully decentralized, native app: the PumaPay Cryptocurrency mobile wallet. Available for Android and iOS devices, the app enables the sending, receiving, and storing of main cryptocurrencies, such as: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), as well as all other ERC-20 tokens.

· Streamlined, in-app cryptocurrency exchange services that allow for easy conversion from other cryptocurrencies to PMA.

· Encouraged merchant-customer trust via easily accessible, in-app refund requests.

· Fully compliant user onboarding that adheres to the 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive and the KYC verification process. PumaPay has also gone as far as to ensure that their solution is compliant with current AML laws but is also future proof for future developments in the field.

· A comprehensive payment gateway, the PumaPay Business console. This platform empowers merchants with the ability to accept crypto, set up customized billings models, as well as manage and optimize their payment flow.

· Zero exposure to crypto volatility and guaranteed full liquidity with the PumaPay Fiat Settlement Layer. With this service, the currency rate is “locked,” thereby eliminating volatility risks and enabling offboarding from crypto to fiat. Further, merchants also have a straightforward means to withdraw funds and directly transfer into their bank account.

· In-app banner placement that provides clear, uninterrupted communication channels between merchants and their respective customers.

· A comprehensive PSP API solution that supports seamless integration for PSPs and their merchants/businesses looking to accept crypto as a means of payment. These advanced tools also aid in easing the onboarding process for clients whilst also providing PSPs with access to all features of the PumaPay PullPayment Protocol.

· Full certification by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Data Security Standards (DSS). This has and continues to ensure that PumaPay adheres to the highest safety standards and application of anti-fraud prevention measures. In complying with global data security standards, they keep their users’ data safe and secure.

· Easy integration with a fully documented API.

· An open-source developer hub space completed with all necessary documentation, product library and guides available at Wiki PumaPay.

· Finally, PumaPay’s most recent development, the “Buy Crypto” service, enables PumaPay wallet users to purchase cryptocurrencies within the app with a credit/debit card. Combined with the ability to exchange crypto to PMA from within the wallet, and the Fiat Settlement Layer, PumaPay is ‘closing the loop’ and creating a complete payment system that is connected to the traditional financial system at its endpoints, allowing easy onboarding and offboarding. In the coming weeks, they will improve the process even further, allowing direct purchase of PMA tokens with credit card from within the wallet.

Going forward, PumaPay has already started to provide some insight into their blueprint for mass crypto adoption. A snapshot of some of the projects they are currently looking into includes:

· The introduction of their very own Side Chain which will provide users with an improved, more competitive service, by expediting transaction settlement times and lowering GAS fees.

· US token– a new project that will hopefully allow PumaPay to offer l tokens to US-based clients, whilst fully complying with US Government regulation.

· Decentralized Finance (DeFi) – a staking mechanism that will offer PMA token holders with the ability to earn money for their holdings.

In paving the way towards mass crypto adoption, PumaPay is maintaining their momentum by consistently providing their users with cost-effective, simple, and efficient means to manage and process their payments. From their billing models to the PumaPay crypto wallet, their services are designed for maximum utility by anyone; whether you be a user wanting to purchase services with crypto or a merchant looking to engage customers and maximize your revenue!

Crypto Behemoth Huobi to Launch Bitcoin Options Trading

Huobi Futures to launch Bitcoin Options Trading in Q3 of 2020. 

Following the successful launch of Perpetual Swaps in Q2 of this year, Huobi Futures now has its sights on a Q3 launch for its Bitcoin Options.

Bitcoin Options are a form of financial derivatives that provide traders with the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell Bitcoin at a specific price at a certain date of expiry.

Alpha testing is already in full swing as the Huobi team looks to iron out and streamline the Options trading offering. Once complete, Huobi Futures will announce the official launch on the Web and API. The options will also then be expanded to the Huobi Trading App.

The contracts will be offered in the European style meaning that buyer of the Option can only be exercised at the expiration. The Options contracts will, at first, only be available for Bitcoin.

Options have long been a popular derivatives trading tool in the traditional space, but this type of trading has also permeated the cryptocurrency space recently. A Bitcoin Options contract is similar to a futures contract with the main difference being that the trader has an option, rather than an obligation, to buy or sell on a fixed date at an agreed upon price.

The crypto behemoth’s entry into the derivatives market has been incredibly successful so far and continues to be bolstered. The company has been sitting at the top of many metrics regarding trading volume and has rocketed to the top in Perpetual Swaps in just a few months.

PaperTale blends technology with sustainability through the blockchain

Since the environment we buy our products from has become ever more global, it has become more and more difficult to keep track of where and these products are made, and if they’ve been manufactured in a way that adheres to our principles. Now, however, a new Swedish blockchain company looks set to change all that.

PaperTale is a new venture in which you’re able to trace a product from its inception using the blockchain, and it brings with it lots of new possibilities.

Let’s say you’re looking at a table, but you’re curious as to the worker’s living standards where it was made, and wish to see if they were paid a fair wage. You can scan the product with your smartphone, and check to see if the employee’s who made the table receive salaries fit for the acceptable living standards in their country.

Or perhaps you want to get verified information about the table’s supply chain and its environmental impact? Again, just scan the product with your phone and the information will be relayed to you on the screen. Using PaperTale, consumers can be much more ethical with their purchases, choosing products that benefit the workers or the environment most.

This traceability is made a reality through PaperTale by way of special protocols built on the blockchain. These enable you to see detailed facets regarding the methods and ethics used to produce the item. On top of that, through PaperTale and your smartphone, it’s possible to send tips directly to the worker who made your products, and have it verified so you can be assured your money has gone to the right people.

PaperTale has been two years in the making, and is finally ready to make its mark on the world. They already have a proof of concept, through the way of a textile company in Pakistan, where all of their new clothes are manufactured using this technology in mind. The tech isn’t limited to textiles though, with PaperTale the possibilities are almost endless.

papertale

If you’re one of the many people concerned about workers’ rights and the environment and want to ensure that what you buy is ethical and complements your principles, PaperTale is the technology that will get you where you want to be. To show your support, their crowdfunding campaign is about to go underway on Kickstarter on 13th November, where you’ll have the chance to be the first to use the new technology.

Support worker’s rights by showing your support for PaperTale.
