Binance Crypto Exchange Teases Bitcoin (BTC) Options Trading Feature

Binance gearing to enter trading options?

In a fairly encrypted tweet on April 3, the Maltese cryptocurrency exchange Binance hinted that it would soon be ready to conclude trade option contracts for its users. The exchange has tweeted that it is currently in the test phase for options trading on the platform.

For the uninitiated, option contracts are complex financial instruments compared to traditional stocks or even digital tokens. A financial option is essentially a derivative instrument, the value of which depends on the volatility of the underlying. Binance’s case is believed to be cryptographic assets, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), and XRP.

In addition, options are also an attractive financial tool, as they can help investors make money by speculating later on the price of the underlying and covering their risks.

For Binance, the introduction of options trading could be part of its long-term strategy to expand trading, which is to offer users various financial instruments and products for effective trading. Trading options on the platform would also help increase the liquidity of the digital assets listed on the exchange.

Binance increases the stake during the financial breakdown

The COVID-19 pandemic has wiped out the world and led the world economy to undetermined and uncertain stagnation. As measures are taken worldwide to reduce the economic and financial impact of the virus, many companies and industries around the world are significantly reducing their business.

However, cryptocurrency companies, especially Binance, appear to be taking advantage of the general pessimistic sentiment that has swept the world.

Hawaii Set to Introduce Regulatory Sandbox for Cryptocurrency Companies

Financial regulators in Hawaii have introduced a regulatory sandbox for cryptocurrency businesses in the State as a way of developing clear-cut laws for the emerging digital economy.

Two-Year Sandbox for Cryptocurrency Firms in Hawaii

Hawaii’s governor’s office released a press statement on Tuesday (March 17, 2020) announcing the creation of the regulatory sandbox for cryptocurrency firms. The new regulatory sandbox is the direct result of the collaboration between the Division of Financial Institutions (DFI) — the State’s financial regulators, and technology stakeholders.

Commenting on the decision, Iris Ikeda, Hawaii’s Commissioner of Financial Institutions, remarked:

“DFI is leveraging its statutory authority to provide an innovative way to introduce digital currency issuers into the State of Hawaii, while ensuring the safety of our consumers. By acknowledging digital currencies as a transmission vehicle of the future, we will be able to craft legislation that is conducive to its development in Hawaii.”

According to Ikeda, participating cryptocurrency businesses in the regulatory sandbox will be able to operate without having to comply with some of the State’s more stringent financial laws. For example, Ikeda revealed that crypto firms that would otherwise have to register as money transmitters will be free from such compliance requirements once they are admitted into the sandbox program.

Ripple may have IPO dreams, but will crypto embrace it?

It can be argued that the innovation spurred by Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market gave rise to Initial Coin Offerings [ICO]. Looked upon as a means to revolutionize the way capital was raised in the ecosystem, ICOs also pushed general people to participate in a particular project. In fact, ICOs’ popularity peaked in 2017, with the year coming to be known as the year of the ICOs.

With time, however, this popularity faded, as multiple fake ICOs emerged. Even though not all projects were fake, it emerged later that nearly 45% of the top 20 ICOs had failed.

However, the lessons of these ICOs remain instrumental, especially with respect to major companies of the cryptocurrency ecosystem that are hinting at conducting an Initial Public Offering [IPO].

Understanding IPO and ICO

ICOs and IPOs differ from each other significantly, like two different generational concepts. On one hand, while IPOs are conducted for well-established companies that are considered “safer” to invest in, on the other hand, ICOs are looked upon as an avenue for young companies, avenues that might come with a *risk warning.*

In fact, according to a report that analyzed 20 ICO projects, 9 out of 20 projects failed, which is 45%. However, 11 were successful, including EOS, a project that, at press time, was rankedeighth in the market with a market capitalization of $1.76 billion.

Since ICOs usually don’t involve parties with years of experience, investment by users will often be based on sentiment [or good faith], while on the other hand, IPOs provide a record of experience in the field, healthy bank accounts, and a business resume.

Alina Kiselevich of Enigma Securities explained this difference between ICOs and IPOs in an interview with AMBCrypto. She said,

“If put simply, Initial Public Offering is a process of distribution of shareholdings to the public though investment, usually only open to established private entities, Initial Coin Offering is, on the other hand, open to everyone who is willing to invest on blockchain, and is a process of crowdfunding for the startup companies, though the intent is the same in both cases.”

The earliest form of IPO can be traced back to publicani during the Roman Republic. IPOs have since evolved to become a more organized, legal, and compliant process. For a company to conduct an IPO, it has to fulfill several requirements like having a minimum earning threshold, a good record, the legal declaration of its intentions to issue public shares, and information about the company to assist potential investors.

Contrarily, ICOs do not fall under any regulatory framework and legal protocols, with many newly formed companies having just a whitepaper to support its project. Similarly, investing in ICOs also has its perks as the only requirement is to have an Internet connection, with investors open to investing in companies in any part of the world. This isn’t the case for IPOsas in its case, there are legal footsteps to be followed to invest in a country abroad.

The stocks acquired by investors during an IPO process resemble their ownership stake in the future revenues of the company. While investing in ICOs does not grant ownership to the investors, but it offers different ways to earn benefits. These benefits could stem from the project’s success and growth of the value of the token it offers.

Even though IPOs appeared to be safer compared to its ICO counterpart, the fate of the company cannot be pre-determined. For example, WeWork, a real estate company providing shared working spaces, had to roll back its idea of conducting an IPO after it ran into financial trouble. The company had filed its IPO paperwork in August but within a month’s time, its valuation was down from $47 billion to $10 billion. Thus, the fate of any company, big or small, new or old, cannot be pre-determined.

When a comparison between ICOs and IPOs was drawn, Alina was of the view that IPOs could be the chosen one.

She elaborated,

“When it comes to returns of the investments, IPOs offer a more secure dividends from the company’s profits, whilst ICOs offer tokens at a price that will get higher due to the trust and interest in the project.”

SEC’s views on ICOs and Ripple’s ICO 

As the ICO wave crashed, the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] clamped down on various projects for selling unregistered securities. For example, Kik and Kin, both successful ICO projects, were among several companies to face the wrath of the SEC.

There has been a long-standing discourse surrounding the treatment of digital assets andRipple Labs Inc. has been at the center of it – with the digital asset XRP. The company had an ongoing class-action lawsuit filed against it by Taylor-Copeland law firm in May 2018 for the sale of unregistered securities. According to a report,

“The lawsuit targets Ripple, its subsidiary XRP II, and Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, alleging that Ripple’s sale of XRP tokens is a violation of U.S. securities laws.”

The plaintiff in the case stuck to Howey Test and its criteria that can categorize XRP as a security. However, the validity of the Howey Test has been argued as it did not fall true for digital assets as they remain a novel concept.

There has been a lot of back and forth in the court about the legitimacy of Howey’s test, butRipple has not managed to quash the case. In a recent turn of events, a United States federal district court even decided to allow a lawsuit alleging that Ripple’s XRP is an unregistered security.

According to Adam Blumberg, the co-founder of Interaxis, Ripple’s tiff with the SEC could play out in multiple ways. Declaring XRP a cryptocurrency would be one easy way out, but what about if it is not? Blumberg posed some important questions,

“…the SEC is having a wrangle with that [Ripple’s ICO] and figure out, “okay, you raised a bunch of money in the public markets using this cryptocurrency that is not at all tied to ownership of ripple,” So does ripple off to give the money back? Do they have to convert every XRP to a share? They’re not, they’re not quite sure how to get over this because it’s been out there for years already.”

Ripple’s IPO

Davos becomes a prime spot once every year when the big shots of the world of finance and politics gather for the World Economic Forum. The summit has its own set of critics, but as January begins, all heads turn to the summit to hear from the horse’s mouth the measures for development taken in the field and the trends to follow.

One name among the guest list was Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse. In a talk with WEF, Garlinghouse had opined that the upcoming trend in the industry could be of IPOs. He had also claimed that Ripple might not be the first to do it, but won’t be last either. He stated,

“In the next 12 months, you’ll see IPOs in the crypto/blockchain space. We’re not going to be the first and we’re not going to be the last, but I expect us to be on the leading side… it’s a natural evolution for our company.”

Thus began the speculation of Ripple’s IPO in the crypto-market. However, according to the co-founder of Interaxis, Adam Blumberg, Ripple has already, in a manner, conducted an IPO of its own.

Ripple may have IPO dreams, but will crypto embrace it?

OKEx Undergoes Maintenance, Becomes Top BTC Futures Exchange

OKEx completed maintenance to find its trading volumes increased and the platform became the top Bitcoin futures exchange.

OKEx completed a short maintenance yesterday at a time of great volatility in the cryptocurrency market. The exchange also just recently overtook competitor BitMEX and became the top Bitcoin futures trading platform.

On Mar. 12, OKEx announced that the platform would be down for system maintenance starting at midnight UTC for about half an hour. Later the same day, the exchange announced that trading activity had resumed.

The maintenance took place at a time of great volatility in the cryptocurrency market which was accompanied by unusually high volumes on cryptocurrency exchanges. Bitcoin (BTC) started Mar. 12 at nearly $8,000 and ended the day at around $5,300.

OKEx adapting to high trading volumes?

According to cryptocurrency market data website CoinGecko, on Mar. 12 OKEx saw a high of $3.1 billion in trading volume, a nearly 160% increase compared to the day before. In recent months, the exchange was already managing higher-than-usual volumes.

Furthermore, OKEx recently overtook BitMEX as the crypto exchange with the highest Bitcoin futures volume, according to Skew. The exchange leads by over 40%.

It is unclear whether the maintenance which OKEx engaged in on such short notice was meant to prevent rising trading volumes from interfering with the correct functioning of the platform. The firm justexplains that the maintenance is meant to ensure “better service quality and trading experience.”

A challenging time for cryptocurrency exchanges

The boom and bust recently experienced by the cryptocurrency market at large were accompanied by a major and sudden rise in trading volume and web traffic related to cryptocurrency exchanges. This resulted in an unexpected high strain on trading infrastructure and some major hiccups.

As Cointelegraph reported in late February, major cryptocurrency exchange Binance halted trading on its platform to resolve an unexpected technical issue with its infrastructure. The unscheduled maintenance followed weeks during which the exchange’s users had to endure a number of performance issues on the platform.

Earlier this month, Binance halted trading after its infrastructure malfunctioned once again. Jay Hao, CEO of OKEx, extended a tongue-in-cheek offer of technical help to Binance’s CEO.

Who uses the most Bitcoin ATMs?

Bitcoin ATMs are now spreading around the world hoping that one day they will become a normal part of our daily lives.

What is a Bitcoin ATM?

A Bitcoin ATM is essentially a “physical” machine that allows users to purchase and deposit cryptocurrencies, just like a traditional cash machine or cash machine. Since ATMs are an integral part of our daily lives, many believe that the use of Bitcoin ATMs to secure a future will be crucial to the introduction of Bitcoin. Bitcoin ATM users will finally find that Bitcoin can also normalize and is not just a difficult online purchase.

Simply put, Bitcoin ATMs ideologically break up all blockchain jargon and offer a simple access point through which everyone can communicate with Bitcoin.

Who uses them?

We said they were part of an international movement – Bitcoin ATMs are worldwide, but most are based in the United States, actually more than 50%.
South America, however, is a continent on which the existence of Bitcoin ATMs is increasing. In countries such as Venezuela and Colombia there are now a number of machines in which users can also participate. “” Access to alternative cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Ethereum.

According to, Athena, a company responsible for the production of many Bitcoin ATMs, has conducted extensive research into the use of Bitcoin ATMs, particularly in Colombia.
It appears that Columbia is ready to take control of the United States for the use of Bitcoin ATMs. The locals find a real use for these machines, which could indicate that there is also a total love for bitcoin and crypto here?

The French court decides that Bitcoin is legal money

A French commercial court has recognized Bitcoin as the currency after a lawsuit between a local cryptocurrency exchange, Paymium, and the investment company BitSpread. With the court ruling, Bitcoin can now be viewed as legal money in France.
The legal status of Bitcoin is identical to that of Fiat
According to a report by the local newspaper Les Echos, the Nanterre Commercial Court on Thursday, March 5, 2020, classified Bitcoin as well as Fiat money as a “fungible intangible asset”.
In response to the court decision, lawyer Hubert de Vauplane said:
“The scope of this decision is considerable since Bitcoin can be treated as money or other financial instruments. This therefore facilitates Bitcoin transactions such as loan or buyback transactions that grow and thus promote liquidity in the cryptocurrency market” ”
The ruling was made after a dispute between Paymium and Bitpread, in which the former borrowed the last 1,000 BTCs in 2014. A hard fork from Bitcoin created the Altcoin Bitcoin Cash in 2017, which meant that BitSpread had to keep 1,000 BCH extra. The two parties then argued about the beneficial owner of the BCH.
To solve the problem, the French court found Bitcoin to be legal money and classified BTC loans in the consumer loan category. In this type of loan, ownership of ownership passes to the borrower for the duration of the loan. For this reason, the commercial court ruled that the BCH belongs to the Paymium cryptocurrency exchange.
BTCManager recently reported that the South Korean National Assembly has passed a bill to legalize bitcoin in the country.
Pro crypto position of France
France has shown a positive attitude towards the cryptocurrency industry, with various incentives and regulations that it has introduced. In June 2019, the French government announced its intention to introduce strict regulations for ICOs in the country.
To attract investment in virtual currencies, the government has abolished the tax on crypto-crypto transactions, but declares that the tax will apply to digital assets that are converted into fiat money.
In addition, the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), an independent financial regulator in France, has authorized Napoleon Asset Management to launch the country’s first regulated Bitcoin fund.

Saxo Bank’s scandalous prediction 2020: Asia markets an asset based on DLT

In its new forecast for 2020, the big Danish bank Saxo Bank predicted that Asia would launch its own blockchain-based digital asset.
The latest edition of the scandalous Saxo Bank forecasts also predicts that President Donald Trump risks losing the 2020 elections when Hungary leaves the EU. The report was released on December 3 following a tweet from the bank.
Saxo Bank says Asia is launching new reserve assets to “fight growing trade rivalry and vulnerabilities due to growing US threats against US dollar weapons and its control of global finances”.
Chinese renminbi will be “very important”
In particular, the bank anticipates that the new asset, called the Asian Drawing Right (ADR), will be issued by the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. The new digital asset is “powered by blockchain technology” and is based on the reserves of regional central banks, while its support will be a basket of global currencies and gold.
While the Chinese renminbi is expected to be “very important” in the ADR currency combination, the US dollar is weighted below 20% according to Saxo Bank forecasts. The total amount of the coin is $ 2. This makes ADR the “largest monetary unit in the world” according to the bank.
The target is said to be “clearly” aimed at reducing the impact of the US dollar on regional trade and the local economy. According to Saxo Bank, blockchain technology is used to stabilize the money supply and track transactions in ADR.
Saxo Bank is known for its cryptographic predictions
Saxo Bank’s forecast for digital currency in Asia for 2020 is not the bank’s first forecast for blockchain technology. In fact, the bank has so far made several predictions about the largest Bitcoin cryptocurrencies (BTC) and other crypto markets.
In mid-April 2018, Saxo Bank predicted that cryptos would experience a significant bull market in the second quarter of 2018. However, after a brief uptrend in April, the crypto markets experienced a strong downtrend in the second quarter.
In 2016, when Bitcoin was trading between $ 450 and $ 950, Saxo Bank predicted that Bitcoin would reach $ 2,100 in 2017. Finally, Bitcoin reached its high level of $ 20,000 by the end of this year.



After May, when Bitcoin halves, the largest cryptocurrency will have an inflation rate of 1.8%, lower than for gold and the US dollar. This only increases the asset value reserve because it really becomes a better value store than any other refuge.

The halving happens when miners receive half of the planned block reward they currently receive for validating transactions on the Bitcoin network. The halves were developed by Satoshi to increase the scarcity of the existing Bitcoin offering, increase the price, start new users and create a positive feedback loop that increases acceptance of Bitcoin. They take place every 210,000 blocks or approx. 4 years.

Just before the last fall in half, we saw a similar formation of a gold cross on the BTC / USD chart, which caused a price increase of 218% as Bitcoin reached its high level all the time. Traders have not forgotten this lesson and appear to position themselves in anticipation.

As of this point, Bitcoin is trading at $ 10,021 after falling to $ 9,480 over the weekend. As the gold cross on the chart is confirmed today, we have seen that the volume of the longline has again raised the price above the psychologically important price level of $ 10,000.

Bitcoin may not yet be in a full bull market, but investor sentiment is currently pushing the commute in this direction. We can see a half bullish attempt and then see a retracement immediately before or after the event.


Many cryptanalysts have predicted that we will never see the price of BTC below 10,000 again, but with the Golden Cross, it may actually be the last catalyst pushing the price of Bitcoin to 5 digits permanently.

Bitcoin is often referred to as a deflationary currency because the plan for issuing new coins is shrinking. Ultimately, the supply and demand economic legislation will affect Bitcoin’s current supply and a reduction in the production of new coins, resulting in an overall price increase.

If the price of the BTC goes up, we can expect the Altseason to skyrocket due to its high correlation with the price of Bitcoin. We have seen many traders diversify into alts as BTC’s dominance has dropped dramatically in recent weeks.

Many altcoins have already surpassed Bitcoin this year and serve as leading indicators of the largest piece of market capitalization. Smart money has quietly taken positions in Bitcoin and Alts, while prices fell during the crypto winter.

If the media has a bullish fever, we can expect a new generation of curious investors to join Bitcoin and Altcoins, which will give institutions gathered massively across the bear market a passion for investing. retail.
