BLOCKCHAIN IS MUSIC TO WARNER’S EARS

Warner Music, the entertainment powerhouse behind major stars like Cardi B, Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars, has joined an $11.2 million investment in Dapper Labs, the company best known for creating the viral blockchain game CryptoKitties.

Warner’s blockchain team will work with Dapper Labs to create new digital assets—think unique, tradable, digital merchandise—featuring a roster of superstar talent. The companies will use a new public blockchain called Flow, which is capable of handling much larger transaction volumes than the Ethereum blockchain.

At stake? The success of Dapper Labs itself, and the dominant position in a rapidly escalating competition to build economies that blur the line between digital assets and the real world.

CRYPTO MARKETS

Bitcoin had a quiet August, despite a 20% bump at the beginning of the month after President Trump tweeted his plans to impose additional tariffs on China and the Chinese yuan reached a 10-year low against the U.S. dollar. The most popular digital currency surrendered these gains as the month wore on, falling to as little as $9,326.

“It is not uncommon for crypto markets to react to global developments and news, but such moves are usually short-lived and loosely correlated,” said Joe DiPasquale, CEO of BitBull Capital.

Bitcoin also saw its lowest levels of volatility in four months this week, shedding more light on just how calm the market has become.

STELLAR’S $124 MILLION AIRDROP

As chatter circulates regarding the status of many crypto assets, like Stellar’s XLM and Ripple’s XRP, as potentially unregulated securities, Stellar has decided to give away roughly $124 million in XLM in a partnership with Keybase, a group messaging and file transfer hub. Ripple, on the other hand, has been selling off its XRP holdings.

Miller Lite jumped on the blockchain train last month, using the technology for its mobile trivia game that rewards of-age customers at certain bars and restaurants with a $5 prize that can be applied to a Miller Lite purchase. While the effort reads like a marketing play, the game uses blockchain and a crypto token to help verify participants and pay out winners of the game.

UK cryptocurrency regulations may soon extend to monitor user wallets

UK cryptocurrency regulations have been the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) compliant, but it appears that the government may opt to monitor user wallets.

To ensure money laundering is curbed, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) of the United Kingdom (UK) has proposed certain limitations for software programs that are built by crypto developers.

The Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing regulations are expected to be extended for entities or institutions that are concerned with digital transactions and cryptocurrencies. These requirements will be enforced in the upcoming year.

The regulations will also apply to companies that produce open-source software and those that produce light wallet software.

UK cryptocurrency regulations: Tracking transactions

The requirements were initially proposed as a decision of her Majesty’s Treasury. The decision aimed to widen the approach of Anti-Monday Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing regulations for companies that deal with cryptocurrencies.

This proposal is expected to be approved and enacted into United Kingdom’s Law by Q1 2020.

Coin Center; a research institute for cryptocurrency that is based in the United States, has spoken against the extension of these regulations, exclaiming that such proposals violate the rights of freedom of speech and privacy.

Conclusively, the authorities are striving to have control over cryptocurrency and crypto technology. The newly proposed regulations aim to track user transactions, especially those that are unlawfully performed.

Imposing Restrictions

The proposed extension of UK cryptocurrency regulations aim to impose more control over the crypto space. Previously, the FCA also imposed restrictions on cryptocurrency investors. The authority implied that conventional buyers of cryptocurrencies have inadequate knowledge of the crypto space, which makes them unable to make informed decisions.

Since late June 2019, the cryptocurrency industry is now required to share user data with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

UK’s Financial Conduct Authority has not yet provided any explicit information regarding the subject; thus, it is not certain if open-source software code will be exempt from the extended regulations.

As reported a day ago, an ATM was set up in Venezuela meant to serve hundreds of crypto-enthusiasts. The machine has so far unveiled support for three major digital currencies: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and DASH [which has garnered attention from thousands in Caracas, and other neighboring cities].

Amaury Séchet is a lead developer belonging to the Bitcoin Cash ABC ecosystem. He gave a brilliant speech at the BCH City Conference that was held in Townsville, Australia. While referring to culture, Amaury said that the BCH chain has better products and fundamentals, and has proven to be more useful in comparison to Bitcoin and various other competing projects.

He spoke of the need to focus on infrastructure. His speech was greeted with thunderous applause as he concluded it. You can watch the full 34-minute talk right here:

According to the data obtained from the candlestick chart connected to the BCH/USD pair on tradingview, one can note that the asset is trying its best to heal gradually. The daily RSI rests at 50.24, and the final two tiny peaks [of the Awesome Oscillator] bear the green shade. This point to bullish momentum returning to influence this altcoin.
