New Hyperledger to be Launched by the Santiago Stock Exchange (STE), and Others

While marketing the Hyperledger network, it was described as an enterprise-focused, permissioned blockchain. However, in recent months, the …

Based on a recent report, the Santiago Stock Exchange (STE), the Global Trade Directory (GTD), and the Central Securities Depository (DVC) has come together to form a new Hyperledger blockchain project to stabilise the Chilean stock market and bring in new investors from overseas.

The Technology Consortium will investigate cases regarding the usage of blockchain in the financial sector, especially in the enhancement of communications for both domestic and international investors in the Chilean stock exchange.

Also, the association of businesses hopes to begin the Business Blockchain Network which will operate a collection of nodes within a year and a half. This interconnectivity is expected to help “reduce applications, times, and costs of administrative processes.”

José Antonio Martinez, the general manager of the Santiago Stock Exchange said that:

“Innovation is a strategic pillar for the Santiago Stock Exchange. Through this Consortium, we seek to generate the best conditions for the stock and financial business, with innovative and world-class solutions,”

Previously, the STE established the Linux Foundation’s Hyperpedger framework in 2018 so as to support short selling and other financial services.

While marketing the Hyperledger network, it was described as an enterprise-focused, permissioned blockchain. However, in recent months, the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) also started making use of some parts of the software.

In addition, for the next six months, the consortium will start defining and finalising information about the initiative with input from institutions which got affected by it. Thereafter, production releases are expected within intervals of 6 months.

Bantotal and Bitex

In other news, top Latin American banking provider — Bantotal, has formed a partnership with digital currency exchange— Bitex to facilitate cross-border payments on the continent while utilising the bitcoin blockchain.

The Chief Marketing Officer at Bitex, Manuel Beaudroit said that:

“The integration of Bitex into Bantotal program represents a major step in the breakthrough of blockchain technology in banking.”

Numerai Deploys Erasure Protocols to Ethereum Mainnet

… will want to use assets like ETH, wBTC, or the native Numerai token (NMR) as they are easily compatible with smart contract escrow requirements.
Reading Time: 2minutesbyAshwath BalakrishnanonAugust 28, 2019&nbspEthereum

Numerai has been making strides since they first launched their outsourced analysis contest. Now, they’ve announced their deployment on the Ethereum blockchain, August 27, 2019. Numerai allows participants to make price predictions for stocks in the Russell 3000 index on a daily basis and be rewarded if they have a strong track record. With the addition of decentralized alternative investment management to Ethereum’s DeFi stack, it shows that anything and everything in financial services can be recreated on Ethereum.

How Numerai Works

Numerai has built two proprietary applications through smart contracts: Erasure Quant and ErasureBay.

Erasure Quant is the contest for daily price predictions on the Russell 3000. Participants are rewarded based on their past predictions, which are locked into an immutable ledger. This is an open template that can now be used by anyone to crowd source information of any variety.

ErasureBay is a decentralized marketplace that allows participants to create signals that can be bought by those seeking that particular information. The point of this is to create a track record for participants signals; as their past performance improves, more people will want to buy their signals.

The project believes that risking money on data is a testament to the reliability of that data. Skin in the game yields more dependable results.

Payment can be done via any cryptocurrency, but it is likely that most participants will want to use assets like ETH, wBTC, or the native Numerai token (NMR) as they are easily compatible with smart contract escrow requirements.

When parties agree to a contract, they stake their asset, and if any participant doesn’t abide by the rules set by the contract, they are punished by having a portion of their staked asset burned.

Deepening Decentralized Finance

Every conversation around Ethereum these days seems to have something to do with DeFi. This particular segment has seen exponential growth in terms of value locked and new developments.

Synthetix and Set Protocol are two high potential projects that help users build investment portfolios. Now that Numerai has been added to the stack, the advent of crowdsourced analysis for financial markets has also reached Ethereum.

At this point, it’s difficult to imagine a financial service that cannot be recreated on Ethereum.

Cryptocurrency in Focus: Ethereum Aims for ‘Serenity’

… high fees associated with these volumes have been a deterrent to adoption by large businesses, said Ethereum’s founder, Vitalik Buterin, recently.

Leading cryptocurrency project Ethereum (ETHGet Report) garners a lot of attention in the industry, but this is a particularly interesting time for the asset as its ratings have declined over the last two months. Price has also dropped significantly.

As the prominent “smart contract platform” in the space, Ethereum boasts a market cap just over $20 billion at the time of this writing. Ether, ETH, is the native currency and lifeblood of the platform, used as “gas” to pay for network transactions.

Nearing ‘Serenity’

The Ethereum blockchain — or database containing transaction information — currently processes transactions in a similar way to Bitcoin. However, massive development efforts are underway on Ethereum 2.0, also known as “Serenity,” to produce a new type of blockchain capable of greater scale. The need for scalability is key as the number of transactions, and subsequent gas prices, continue to rise on the platform.

This summer, Ethereum ratings have been in decline. Its FCAS (Fundamental Crypto Asset Score) slid 2.43% over the last two months, driven by a 50-point (-5.27%) drop in User Activity. Developer Behavior also fell 1-point (-0.1%), and Market Maturity slipped 18-points (-2.27%). Price is down 41.41% over the same time period.

From a high-level, Ethereum’s slump in User Activity is potentially tied to several trends impacted by scalability concerns. First, existing projects building on top of Ethereum are either launching their own types of blockchains or moving to other platform competitors with better scale and cheaper fees. Second, new projects are simply choosing to build elsewhere, and third, users are engaging with Ethereum’s decentralized applications at a diminishing rate.

Additionally, increasing competition for transaction processing and the high fees associated with these volumes have been a deterrent to adoption by large businesses, said Ethereum’s founder, Vitalik Buterin, recently.

Still, Ethereum’s overall User Activity rating is still very strong, ranking 11th overall.

Our Hot Take

Ethereum has a major head-start in what has been dubbed the “Platform Wars,” where a number of emerging blockchain platforms are vying for supremacy and mass adoption in the industry. These new platforms have benefited from watching Ethereum take the early lead, creating offerings that focus on delivering both greater scalability and a higher level of compatibility with competitor assets and functionality.

While the Ethereum team’s planned move to Ethereum 2.0 is ambitious, a number of projects in the industry are already working concurrently to solve its scalability issues. These projects are known as “Layer 2” solutions and come in a variety of forms.

In all, Buterin and team are highly capable of keeping the Ethereum ship on course to Serenity. The headwinds of scalability and declining use are surmountable challenges as the industry becomes increasingly focused on delivering real use cases through the applications it fosters.
