Coinbase CTO: Crypto is Entering the Tech Mainstream

Crypto News | Latest News

Balaji Srinivasan, a prominent venture capital investor and the chief technical officer at Coinbase, said that crypto is entering the tech mainstream.

“Sundar Pichai & Sergey Brin’s sons are both mining crypto; Facebook is doing blockchain; Square open sourced some nice cold storage code; Microsoft, Amazon, Google Cloud all have blockchain efforts; crypto is entering the tech mainstream.”

Since early 2018, unreflective of the 73 percent correction in the cryptocurrency market which saw the combined valuation of cryptocurrencies drop from $800 billion to $210 billion, the cryptocurrency market and blockchain sector have shown significant progress in terms of institutionalizing an emerging asset class, improving market structure, and strengthening the underlying technologies of cryptocurrencies.

Increasing Awareness of Blockchain

As a data processing technology, the blockchain enables the segregation and storage of data in a series of blocks in a peer-to-peer process. But, to ensure that bad actors with malicious intent are penalized accordingly for engaging in fraudulent activity, an incentive system in the form of a cryptocurrency is necessary on a blockchain network.

To better understand the necessity, structure, and decentralized nature, an increasing number of institutions, technology conglomerates, and enthusiasts have started to mine cryptocurrencies that support major blockchain networks.

Recently Google co-founder Sergey Brin and CEO Sundar Pichai have publicly said their sons have been mining ETH, the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum blockchain protocol.

Pichai noted that his 11-year-old son understood the concept of Ethereum and consensus currencies better than fiat currency, possibly due to the complexity of connections and centralization involved in the creation, distribution, and operation of fiat money.

“Last week I was at dinner with my son, and I was talking about something about bitcoin and my son clarified what I was talking about was ethereum, which is slightly different. He’s 11 years old, and he told me he’s mining it. I had [to] explain to him how paper money actually works. I realized he understood ethereum better than how paper money works. I had to talk to him about the banking system, the importance of it. It was a good conversation.”

Previously, Fidelity Investments, the fourth largest asset manager in the world with more than $7 trillion assets under management, also mined Bitcoin and Ethereum to grasp the concept of mining and the necessity of cryptocurrencies.

Fast forward one year and five months, Fidelity Investments established Fidelity Digital Assets, providing custody services around the asset class to help institutional investors invest in the market.

Open-Source Revolution

Square, the $30 billion payment giant operated by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, has recently open-sourced its code that processes cold storage funds.

As a decentralized and peer-to-peer network, the blockchain is developed and maintained by an open-source group of developers that proposed code changes and improvements on code repositories like GitHub.

Last month, Octoverse reported that Ethereum had become the fifth fastest growing open-source project in the world alongside Microsoft Azure and Spyder.

The rise of cryptocurrencies as a recognized asset class and blockchain technology as one of the core pillars of the fourth industrial revolution has led institutions and individuals to rethink how the global monetary system works and the way information can be processed in a peer-to-peer manner.

Coinbase has just announced that trading of the Basic Attention Token is soon to be enabled on the Coinbase Pro platform, and deposits of the token are now being accepted.  Trading in the token — which runs on Ethereum — will actually begin after a market begins to formulate.

From the announcement:

“Once sufficient liquidity is established, trading on the BAT/USDC order book will start. […] BAT trading will be accessible for users in most jurisdictions, but will not initially be available for residents of the state of New York.”

Trading is apparently not going to be allowed to residents of New York, likely due to regulatory concerns. Users will have to bring their own BAT, as purchase of the token is not currently available on the regular Coinbase.com.

The price of BAT was around 25 cents as of yesterday, but on today’s news, it has gone up by a nickel. It is not difficult to speculate that the increased exposure through the Coinbase Pro platform will continue this incline and that BAT could see new highs beyond its all-time-high of more than 60 cents per token.

The Brave browser project is the primary effort behind  BAT, which is aimed at rewarding users for enabling ads. Brave browser has ads disabled by default. BAT tokens have a real-world value assigned by market traders and benefit both sides of the content world – the viewer and the content provider. Last year, Brave enabled them on YouTube videos and over the past few weeks, prior to the listing on Coinbase Pro, the token has seen a rally due to the program entering beta and increased awareness.

The Chrome-based browser itself has millions of active users and discourages tracking, malvertising, and inefficient website coding. Current market share reports on browsers do not sufficiently differentiate user agents enough to tell the difference between various forks of Chrome; thus, it is hard to estimate how many people are currently using the browser. Nevertheless, as market share of it grows, the native utility of the BAT will continue to grow, and thus so will demand for it.

CCN will check in with BAT as trading on Coinbase goes live to see whether the move by one of the oldest, largest, most compliant exchanges will have a positive impact. It’s important to note that BAT has long traded on Binance, which is an exchange with the most volume across several markets.

Coinbase, long one of the largest companies in the crypto industry, now ranks among the world’s most valuable tech startups following the conclusion of a new funding round.

The San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange operator announced on Tuesday that it had closed a $300 million Series E funding round led by Tiger Global Management. The funding round, which Coinbase President & COO Asiff Hirji said gave the company a valuation of more than $8 billion, also featured participation from Y Combinator Continuity, Wellington Management, Andreessen Horowitz, and Polychain Capital.

Writing in the announcement, Hirji said that Coinbase, which recently outlined a new crypto token listing framework, plans to “quickly” list more cryptocurrencies, adding that “we see hundreds of cryptocurrencies that could be added to our platform today and we will lay the groundwork to support thousands in the future.”

Speaking with Bloomberg, he said that Coinbase did not need the funding but pursued it for “opportunistic” reasons. Citing company documents, the report states that Coinbase achieved a record $380 million in profit in 2017 and — despite the bitcoin bear market — estimates that profit will grow to $456 million in 2018 with revenue approaching $1.3 billion.

“The companies interested in investing in us know that this is the next wave of tech innovation,” Hirji told the publication. “This was an opportunistic round. We didn’t have to go out and raise capital.”

Reports had long circulated that Coinbase had internally valued itself at $8 billion, though this valuation had not been confirmed by the market — until now.

According to Bloomberg, Coinbase had attempted to conduct the funding round at an even higher valuation but found that the crypto market decline had made some investors hesitant about overpricing a cryptocurrency-focused startup.

“For this round, we simply weren’t interested in taking investments from firms that didn’t have a constructive view of crypto,” Hirji said. “This round, and the future of crypto in general, needs to be about more than asset prices.”

In addition to listing new cryptocurrencies, the firm intends to use this financing to further its global expansion plans and add new features and supported cryptocurrencies to its institutional platform, which recently received approval from New York regulators to operate as a qualified custodian. Moreover, Hirji suggested that Coinbase will prioritize developing more “utility applications” for cryptocurrency, noting its decision to serve as a co-founder of the USD Coin stablecoin project as an example of this commitment.

Previously, Recode had reported that Tiger Global was considering a $500 million investment in Coinbase, with at least a portion of those funds being used to purchase shares on the secondary market.

Cryptocurrency exchange and brokerage giant Coinbase has provided a major stamp of approval to one of several recently launched USD-pegged cryptocurrency “stablecoins” seeking to supplant tether (USDT) as the leader in this burgeoning market niche.

The San Francisco-based Coinbase on Tuesday announced that beginning today, customers can buy, sell, send, and receive USD Coin, the cryptocurrency initially launched by fellow cryptocurrency unicorn Circle.

Coinbase customers throughout the world can send and receive the token, which is backed by physical dollars stored in company-controlled bank accounts, while U.S. customers — excluding those in New York — can buy and sell the token on Coinbase.com. USDC is not currently listed on Coinbase Pro — the firm’s order-book cryptocurrency exchange — though the company says it will be added to this platform “in the coming weeks.”

Commenting on its decision to support the USDC stablecoin, Coinbase said that fiat-based blockchain currencies could contribute to the development of “a more open financial system” and could further the adoption of decentralized applications (dApps):

“The advantage of a blockchain-based digital dollar like USDC is easier to program with, to send quickly, to use in dApps, and to store locally than traditional bank account-based dollars. That’s why we think of it as an important step towards a more open financial system.”

Coinbase also noted that stablecoins like USDC are ideal for business purposes and e-commerce applications, as payments denominated in these tokens can be made at any time of day without the inherent risks of price volatility associated with using bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as working capital.

At present, though, stablecoins are primarily used as a USD proxy in cryptocurrency trading. Collectively, fiat-pegged assets see more than $2 billion in daily trading volume, with the vast majority of those trades currently denominated in the controversial tether token.

In adding support for USDC, Coinbase joins Circle as a founding member of the CENTRE Consortium, which governs the development of issuance of USD Coin and other stablecoins that the consortium may develop in the future.

According to the announcement, Coinbase had already partnered with Circle to build the underlying technology behind USDC, which is structured as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum network, though the full extent of Coinbase’s involvement had not previously been made public.

In launching USDC through a partnership with Coinbase, Jeremy Allaire, co-founder and CEO of Circle, emphasized the importance of creating an asset that has no single owner or issuer.

“Coinbase joining us to co-found CENTRE and launch USDC reinforces the value of a shared, standard, interoperable stablecoin. Like internet standards, USDC is now not owned by one single company, but distributed among network participants according to clear rules, regulations, and collectively-owned software,” he said. “When we began work on CENTRE and USDC last year, we envisioned collaborating with a consortium of industry leaders to set new standards for global value exchange and financial contracts. We’ve been thrilled to collaborate with Coinbase on CENTRE, and we look forward to welcoming more partners who share this vision.”

 

CCN

Coinbase is unveiling a suite of new initiatives designed to expand its market share.

The latest update called “Coinbase Bundles,” refers to the pre-packaged collection of five cryptocurrencies available for purchase on Coinbase. The Bundle consists of Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum Classic (ETC).

A bundle of five cryptocurrencies can be purchased for a meager sum of $25. With the current market cap employed in calculating a diversified portfolio of cryptocurrencies available for purchase with a couple of taps, Coinbase will save customers a lot of hassles.

The exchange hopes to introduce the new update to its U.S., E.U, and U.K markets in the coming weeks. At the moment, the digital asset platform has not set a maximum purchase size for a Bundle, but there are daily purchase limits on a per customer basis, at the moment. When a customer buys a bundle, it will be stored on their Coinbase wallet, where it can be purchased, sold, sent or received as an individual asset.

The digital asset platform will also host Information Asset Pages on the top 50 digital currencies on its platform, along with a new section, called “Coinbase Learn,” which will educate first time traders to cryptocurrency. The Vice President and General Manager of Coinbase Consumer Dan Romero stated that the ability of people to understand, explore and choose cryptocurrency would go a long way in determining the possibility of an open financial system coming to reality.

“We expect that millions of people will make their first cryptocurrency purchase in the coming years. But all too often, getting started can be overwhelming for people learning about crypto for the first time.”

The Information Asset Pages will provide customers with all information about the top 50 cryptocurrencies based on market cap. Customers can learn about cryptocurrencies that are neither available for purchase nor sale on Coinbase. The page also furnishes its users with information on historical trading data, current market cap and referral links to project websites.

Romero said the new Coinbase Learn section would be exclusively set aside to enlighten newbies on cryptocurrency. It also provides answers to frequently asked questions.

Taking time to acquaint others about cryptocurrency is no mean feat. It is fair to say there is no particular database containing all the fundamental principles responsible for the technology. This new section about to be launched by Coinbase will teach and educate newbies about cryptocurrency. Responses to the frequently asked questions stemmed from customer research and were cross-checked with individuals new to the virtual currency.

Coinbase recently announced an overhaul to their digital asset listing process to make it faster to list more assets that are compliant with local laws on a “jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction” basis. It also added support for ethereum classic and raised the daily buy limits for users to $25,000 and eliminated the sell limit.

 

Cryptocurrency exchange and wallet service Coinbase has rolled out a new update called “Coinbase Bundles,” which is designed to simplify cryptocurrency trading, according to an announcement published September 27.

Coinbase Bundles is a basket of five cryptocurrencies supported on Coinbase and purchased in proportion to their market capitalization in U.S. dollars. The Bundle consists of Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum Classic (ETC); the smallest Bundle costs $25, £25, or €25.

While Coinbase has not set up a maximum purchase size for a Bundle, the exchange limits daily purchase amounts on a per-customer basis. Once a customer has bought a Bundle, each type of virtual currency will be stored in their Coinbase wallet and can be bought, sold, sent or received as an individual asset.

Coinbase expects to introduce the new product in the U.S., E.U. and U.K. in the coming weeks. Along with the Coinbase Bundle, the exchange will now host informational asset pages about the top 50 digital currencies in terms of market capitalization, in addition to a “Coinbase Learn” section aimed at educating newcomers to cryptocurrency trading.

Recently, Coinbase announced a new process that will allow it to list more digital assets faster. The process refers to cryptocurrencies that are compliant with local law, which means that certain assets listed on the platform may only be available to customers in particular jurisdictions.

Earlier this month, Coinbase revealed it is looking to create a cryptocurrency-based exchange-traded fund (ETF). Coinbase has reportedly been in discussions with the blockchain working group of asset management giant BlackRock. It remains unclear whether the initiative is concluded or still under negotiation.

Cryptocurrency exchange giant Coinbase might, as market research firm Bernstein recently said, be on the cusp of assembling an “unassailable” market share in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean that the San Francisco-based firm isn’t struggling to maintain consumer activity during the current downturn.

Citing data from CoinApi, cryptoasset research firm Diar reports that USD-denominated cryptocurrency trading has plunged in 2018, even as large cryptocurrency-to-cryptocurrency exchanges headquartered in other parts of the world have seen stable or even rising volumes.

According to the publication, Coinbase — the most well-known cryptocurrency trading platform in the U.S. — has seen volumes plunge by 83 percent from their all-time high in January. In July, Coinbase processed an estimated $3.9 billion worth of trades, down from a peak of nearly $21 billion. Bitstamp and Kraken, both of whom offer USD trading pairs, have also experienced significant declines, though they have been less-pronounced than those seen on Coinbase.

Binance, the world’s largest order-book cryptocurrency exchange, has also seen a moderate decline in volumes in its BTC, ETH, BCH, and LTC markets (the four cryptocurrencies that have been available on Coinbase throughout 2018), from $17.5 billion in February to a low of $9.4 billion in June. However, Binance volume jumped 21 percent the next month, reaching $11.3 billion in July.

Meanwhile, OKEx, generally the second-largest cryptocurrency exchange, attracted a surge in trading volume among these four-large cap coins between June and July, from to $5.7 billion from $2.9 billion. That not only signifies a month-over-month increase of 97 percent but also, Diar reports, represents a new monthly record for OKEx.

That’s particularly notable since volume on Coinbase and Bitstamp decreased between June and July, albeit slightly. Incidentally, neither Coinbase nor Bitstamp supports USD-pegged stablecoin Tether(USDT), while both OKEx and Binance do. Tether, whose solvency and credibility have been the subject of much debate within the cryptocurrency community, has issued hundreds of millions of dollars worth of new tokens over the past few weeks, which could help explain the discrepancy in volume between exchanges that support USDT and those that do not.

Additionally, both Binance and OKEx, are planning to set up shop in Malta after pro-industry regulations go into effect in the self-described “Blockchain Island” later this year. Binance, which heretofore has only offered crypto-to-crypto trading, has also unveiled plans to partner with a Liechtenstein-based company to begin offering its first fiat trading pairs.

Crypto exchange Coinbase recently filed for a patent detailing a new system to enable online users to make Bitcoin payments more securely. The patent, filed on August 14, will allow users to make payments directly from their Bitcoin wallet.

The patent cites the issue of customers being required to compromise on the security of their own private keys, saying:

“Existing systems do not provide a solution for maintaining security over private keys while still allowing the users to checkout on a merchant page and making payments using their wallets.”

The new system will enable users to pay directly in a “key ceremony” which encrypts private user passphrases into a masterkey during checkout to greatly reduce the risk of the keys being stolen. The masterkey serves the function of encrypting private keys and transaction signing, and upon being used the masterkey is deleted.

The system allows for administrators to freeze all processes using what is described as “freeze logic,” presumably in the event that a user reports that they are being hacked or their identity is being assumed.

“At any point in time after the master key is loaded, the system can be frozen. The system can be unfrozen after it has been frozen using keys from the key ceremony. The checkout process can be carried out when the system is frozen and when the system is unfrozen. The payment process can only be carried out when the system is unfrozen.”

The patent also describes an API generation service that will enable the payment system to be used by other websites and services. The API has two parts, one of which will be stored on the Coinbase web service and the other on the user/host server to allow for an extra security measure as transactions are confirmed “only if the API key received from the web server matches the API key stored by the service.” Such a payment system that allows secure Bitcoin payments on multiple websites could stand to be widely adopted throughout the cryptocurrency and e-commerce space.

Coinbase has applied for numerous Bitcoin-related patents in the past, with nine filed in 2015 alone leading to critics accuse the exchange of seeking to create a monopoly on Bitcoin services, which CEO Brian Armstrong denied in a blog post on Medium which stated that the goal was to keep the technology out of the hands of patent trolls who would patent services and hold them for ransom.

In 2016, the exchange filed for a patent to secure Bitcoin private keys, and in a sense, this new system can be seen as a continuation of that which will allow other businesses to use the Coinbase Bitcoin payment portal.

Coinbase, the major US cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider, has entered the cryptocurrency gift card market, which will allow customers in certain countries to exchange their crypto points for gift cards according to their blog post on July 25.

Coinbase conference through a partnership with a UK-based startup WeGift, that the whole allow cryptocurrency users to pay for goods and services through brands like Google Play, Nike, Uber, Ticketmaster, and Zalando.

Starting immediately, Coinbase customers in Europe and Australia will be able to instantly spend their cryptocurrency balance on e-gift cards making it the first trading platform to offer immediate withdrawals to gift cards.

The service will initially be available to Coinbase users in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, and Australia with plans to expand the number of retailers and markets within the next 3 months. They also plan to expand to other countries within the year.

God’s Unchained is the first competitive e-sports game on the Ethereum network. The game recently launched with backing from Coinbase, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider.

Currently, the blockchain game has mainly been limited to a few collectibles which can be purchased inside the application where users buy and sell digital assets just like they would baseball cards.

The game has undoubtedly caught the attention of investors, however current data shows that daily active users are still rather low at time of this release.

UPDATE (8/1/2018): Guide To Purchasing Card Packs & Get Started Playing located below.

Hybrid Chain System Backed by Coinbase

The development company behind this revolutionary game, Fuel Games, previously launched another popular Ethereum based game by the name of Etherbots . It operated on the Ethereum network as a full on-chain game where every piece of data was created and sent to the Ethereum blockchain.

However, developers of God’s Unchained took a different approach to this game by including a hybrid on-chain and off-chain system. This allows information to be processed in batches and will prevent congesting the Ethereum network as well as provide users with a seamless experience.

The cofounder of the game, Robbie Ferguson explained…

“The cards are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, however players in God’s unchained will only initiate transactions on the network once they purchase cards or transfer existing ones. All other gameplay elements will run off-chain, which will allow gameplay to be indistinguishable from other games that do not utilize distributed ledger’s. This will permit millions of users to play without any noticeable waiting down of the network.”

Most notably , Fuel Games secured an investment from Coinbase ventures within its equity round of investing. Ferguson emphasized that having Coinbase involved with the launching of the game was clear validation regarding the efforts of the developers as well as the $50 billion industry of game asset trading on the Ethereum blockchain.

Two Layer Ethereum Solution Useful, but Not Necessary for Gods Unchained

Recently, the entire open source Ethereum development community has been focusing on Sharding and Plasma technologies. These are two-layer to scaling solutions which are expected to increase the capacity of the Ethereum network to over 1 million transactions per second.

However, Ferguson stated that Gods Unchained is not relying on the completion of these two developments in order to settle large amounts of data on the decentralized ecosystem. Fuel Game developers will be building their own unique system to cope with the current landscape of the Ethereum network.

Ferguson also states…

“The impact of Sharding and Plasma will be an extremely useful development for the Ethereum network in the near future. However, this is not necessary for Gods Unchained to run well. Trading may become a lot easier with these developments, however we’ve already made the necessary choices in order to ensure that gameplay will be seamless, regardless if Ethereum scales or not. Sharding and Plasma should not be rushed and it’s much better for developers and gamers to not rush into releasing these upgrades until they are fully tested.”

Gods Unchained: The New Generation Blockchain Games

Currently, there isn’t much known about Gods Unchained, however we do know that it will be free to play. There will be a series of game cards which can be won, as well as various rare assets that can be purchased with ether. The value of these digital assets can be changed once a developer decides to release more assets or offer special deals.

There will also be e-sports features to ensure that participants get a full multiplayer experience. Like most other blockchain based games, users will be able to exit the game whenever they like and make back or even generate a positive ROI by selling purchases they make or earn.

Coinbase CTO: Crypto is Entering the Tech Mainstream

Crypto News | Latest News

Balaji Srinivasan, a prominent venture capital investor and the chief technical officer at Coinbase, said that crypto is entering the tech mainstream.

The funding round, which Coinbase President & COO Asiff Hirji said gave the company a valuation of more than $8 billion, also featured participation from Y Combinator Continuity, Wellington Management, Andreessen Horowitz, and Polychain Capital.

Writing in the announcement, Hirji said that Coinbase, which recently outlined a new crypto token listing framework, plans to “quickly” list more cryptocurrencies, adding that “we see hundreds of cryptocurrencies that could be added to our platform today and we will lay the groundwork to support thousands in the future.”

Speaking with Bloomberg, he said that Coinbase did not need the funding but pursued it for “opportunistic” reasons. Citing company documents, the report states that Coinbase achieved a record $380 million in profit in 2017 and — despite the bitcoin bear market — estimates that profit will grow to $456 million in 2018 with revenue approaching $1.3 billion.

“The companies interested in investing in us know that this is the next wave of tech innovation,” Hirji told the publication. “This was an opportunistic round. We didn’t have to go out and raise capital.”

Reports had long circulated that Coinbase had internally valued itself at $8 billion, though this valuation had not been confirmed by the market — until now.

According to Bloomberg, Coinbase had attempted to conduct the funding round at an even higher valuation but found that the crypto market decline had made some investors hesitant about overpricing a cryptocurrency-focused startup.

“For this round, we simply weren’t interested in taking investments from firms that didn’t have a constructive view of crypto,” Hirji said. “This round, and the future of crypto in general, needs to be about more than asset prices.”

In addition to listing new cryptocurrencies, the firm intends to use this financing to further its global expansion plans and add new features and supported cryptocurrencies to its institutional platform, which recently received approval from New York regulators to operate as a qualified custodian. Moreover, Hirji suggested that Coinbase will prioritize developing more “utility applications” for cryptocurrency, noting its decision to serve as a co-founder of the USD Coin stablecoin project as an example of this commitment.

Previously, Recode had reported that Tiger Global was considering a $500 million investment in Coinbase, with at least a portion of those funds being used to purchase shares on the secondary market.

Cryptocurrency exchange and brokerage giant Coinbase has provided a major stamp of approval to one of several recently launched USD-pegged cryptocurrency “stablecoins” seeking to supplant tether (USDT) as the leader in this burgeoning market niche.

The San Francisco-based Coinbase on Tuesday announced that beginning today, customers can buy, sell, send, and receive USD Coin, the cryptocurrency initially launched by fellow cryptocurrency unicorn Circle.

Coinbase customers throughout the world can send and receive the token, which is backed by physical dollars stored in company-controlled bank accounts, while U.S. customers — excluding those in New York — can buy and sell the token on Coinbase.com. USDC is not currently listed on Coinbase Pro — the firm’s order-book cryptocurrency exchange — though the company says it will be added to this platform “in the coming weeks.”

Commenting on its decision to support the USDC stablecoin, Coinbase said that fiat-based blockchain currencies could contribute to the development of “a more open financial system” and could further the adoption of decentralized applications (dApps):

“The advantage of a blockchain-based digital dollar like USDC is easier to program with, to send quickly, to use in dApps, and to store locally than traditional bank account-based dollars. That’s why we think of it as an important step towards a more open financial system.”

Coinbase also noted that stablecoins like USDC are ideal for business purposes and e-commerce applications, as payments denominated in these tokens can be made at any time of day without the inherent risks of price volatility associated with using bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as working capital.

At present, though, stablecoins are primarily used as a USD proxy in cryptocurrency trading. Collectively, fiat-pegged assets see more than $2 billion in daily trading volume, with the vast majority of those trades currently denominated in the controversial tether token.

In adding support for USDC, Coinbase joins Circle as a founding member of the CENTRE Consortium, which governs the development of issuance of USD Coin and other stablecoins that the consortium may develop in the future.

According to the announcement, Coinbase had already partnered with Circle to build the underlying technology behind USDC, which is structured as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum network, though the full extent of Coinbase’s involvement had not previously been made public.

In launching USDC through a partnership with Coinbase, Jeremy Allaire, co-founder and CEO of Circle, emphasized the importance of creating an asset that has no single owner or issuer.

“Coinbase joining us to co-found CENTRE and launch USDC reinforces the value of a shared, standard, interoperable stablecoin. Like internet standards, USDC is now not owned by one single company, but distributed among network participants according to clear rules, regulations, and collectively-owned software,” he said. “When we began work on CENTRE and USDC last year, we envisioned collaborating with a consortium of industry leaders to set new standards for global value exchange and financial contracts. We’ve been thrilled to collaborate with Coinbase on CENTRE, and we look forward to welcoming more partners who share this vision.”

Coinbase is unveiling a suite of new initiatives designed to expand its market share.

The latest update called “Coinbase Bundles,” refers to the pre-packaged collection of five cryptocurrencies available for purchase on Coinbase. The Bundle consists of Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum Classic (ETC).

A bundle of five cryptocurrencies can be purchased for a meager sum of $25. With the current market cap employed in calculating a diversified portfolio of cryptocurrencies available for purchase with a couple of taps, Coinbase will save customers a lot of hassles.

The exchange hopes to introduce the new update to its U.S., E.U, and U.K markets in the coming weeks. At the moment, the digital asset platform has not set a maximum purchase size for a Bundle, but there are daily purchase limits on a per customer basis, at the moment. When a customer buys a bundle, it will be stored on their Coinbase wallet, where it can be purchased, sold, sent or received as an individual asset.

The digital asset platform will also host Information Asset Pages on the top 50 digital currencies on its platform, along with a new section, called “Coinbase Learn,” which will educate first time traders to cryptocurrency. The Vice President and General Manager of Coinbase Consumer Dan Romero stated that the ability of people to understand, explore and choose cryptocurrency would go a long way in determining the possibility of an open financial system coming to reality.

“We expect that millions of people will make their first cryptocurrency purchase in the coming years. But all too often, getting started can be overwhelming for people learning about crypto for the first time.”

The Information Asset Pages will provide customers with all information about the top 50 cryptocurrencies based on market cap. Customers can learn about cryptocurrencies that are neither available for purchase nor sale on Coinbase. The page also furnishes its users with information on historical trading data, current market cap and referral links to project websites.

Romero said the new Coinbase Learn section would be exclusively set aside to enlighten newbies on cryptocurrency. It also provides answers to frequently asked questions.

Taking time to acquaint others about cryptocurrency is no mean feat. It is fair to say there is no particular database containing all the fundamental principles responsible for the technology. This new section about to be launched by Coinbase will teach and educate newbies about cryptocurrency. Responses to the frequently asked questions stemmed from customer research and were cross-checked with individuals new to the virtual currency.

Coinbase recently announced an overhaul to their digital asset listing process to make it faster to list more assets that are compliant with local laws on a “jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction” basis. It also added support for ethereum classic and raised the daily buy limits for users to $25,000 and eliminated the sell limit.

 

Cryptocurrency exchange and wallet service Coinbase has rolled out a new update called “Coinbase Bundles,” which is designed to simplify cryptocurrency trading, according to an announcement published September 27.

Coinbase Bundles is a basket of five cryptocurrencies supported on Coinbase and purchased in proportion to their market capitalization in U.S. dollars. The Bundle consists of Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum Classic (ETC); the smallest Bundle costs $25, £25, or €25.

While Coinbase has not set up a maximum purchase size for a Bundle, the exchange limits daily purchase amounts on a per-customer basis. Once a customer has bought a Bundle, each type of virtual currency will be stored in their Coinbase wallet and can be bought, sold, sent or received as an individual asset.

Coinbase expects to introduce the new product in the U.S., E.U. and U.K. in the coming weeks. Along with the Coinbase Bundle, the exchange will now host informational asset pages about the top 50 digital currencies in terms of market capitalization, in addition to a “Coinbase Learn” section aimed at educating newcomers to cryptocurrency trading.

Recently, Coinbase announced a new process that will allow it to list more digital assets faster. The process refers to cryptocurrencies that are compliant with local law, which means that certain assets listed on the platform may only be available to customers in particular jurisdictions.

Earlier this month, Coinbase revealed it is looking to create a cryptocurrency-based exchange-traded fund (ETF). Coinbase has reportedly been in discussions with the blockchain working group of asset management giant BlackRock. It remains unclear whether the initiative is concluded or still under negotiation.

Cryptocurrency exchange giant Coinbase might, as market research firm Bernstein recently said, be on the cusp of assembling an “unassailable” market share in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean that the San Francisco-based firm isn’t struggling to maintain consumer activity during the current downturn.

Citing data from CoinApi, cryptoasset research firm Diar reports that USD-denominated cryptocurrency trading has plunged in 2018, even as large cryptocurrency-to-cryptocurrency exchanges headquartered in other parts of the world have seen stable or even rising volumes.

According to the publication, Coinbase — the most well-known cryptocurrency trading platform in the U.S. — has seen volumes plunge by 83 percent from their all-time high in January. In July, Coinbase processed an estimated $3.9 billion worth of trades, down from a peak of nearly $21 billion. Bitstamp and Kraken, both of whom offer USD trading pairs, have also experienced significant declines, though they have been less-pronounced than those seen on Coinbase.

Binance, the world’s largest order-book cryptocurrency exchange, has also seen a moderate decline in volumes in its BTC, ETH, BCH, and LTC markets (the four cryptocurrencies that have been available on Coinbase throughout 2018), from $17.5 billion in February to a low of $9.4 billion in June. However, Binance volume jumped 21 percent the next month, reaching $11.3 billion in July.

Meanwhile, OKEx, generally the second-largest cryptocurrency exchange, attracted a surge in trading volume among these four-large cap coins between June and July, from to $5.7 billion from $2.9 billion. That not only signifies a month-over-month increase of 97 percent but also, Diar reports, represents a new monthly record for OKEx.

That’s particularly notable since volume on Coinbase and Bitstamp decreased between June and July, albeit slightly. Incidentally, neither Coinbase nor Bitstamp supports USD-pegged stablecoin Tether(USDT), while both OKEx and Binance do. Tether, whose solvency and credibility have been the subject of much debate within the cryptocurrency community, has issued hundreds of millions of dollars worth of new tokens over the past few weeks, which could help explain the discrepancy in volume between exchanges that support USDT and those that do not.

Additionally, both Binance and OKEx, are planning to set up shop in Malta after pro-industry regulations go into effect in the self-described “Blockchain Island” later this year. Binance, which heretofore has only offered crypto-to-crypto trading, has also unveiled plans to partner with a Liechtenstein-based company to begin offering its first fiat trading pairs.

Crypto exchange Coinbase recently filed for a patent detailing a new system to enable online users to make Bitcoin payments more securely. The patent, filed on August 14, will allow users to make payments directly from their Bitcoin wallet.

The patent cites the issue of customers being required to compromise on the security of their own private keys, saying:

“Existing systems do not provide a solution for maintaining security over private keys while still allowing the users to checkout on a merchant page and making payments using their wallets.”

The new system will enable users to pay directly in a “key ceremony” which encrypts private user passphrases into a masterkey during checkout to greatly reduce the risk of the keys being stolen. The masterkey serves the function of encrypting private keys and transaction signing, and upon being used the masterkey is deleted.

The system allows for administrators to freeze all processes using what is described as “freeze logic,” presumably in the event that a user reports that they are being hacked or their identity is being assumed.

“At any point in time after the master key is loaded, the system can be frozen. The system can be unfrozen after it has been frozen using keys from the key ceremony. The checkout process can be carried out when the system is frozen and when the system is unfrozen. The payment process can only be carried out when the system is unfrozen.”

The patent also describes an API generation service that will enable the payment system to be used by other websites and services. The API has two parts, one of which will be stored on the Coinbase web service and the other on the user/host server to allow for an extra security measure as transactions are confirmed “only if the API key received from the web server matches the API key stored by the service.” Such a payment system that allows secure Bitcoin payments on multiple websites could stand to be widely adopted throughout the cryptocurrency and e-commerce space.

Coinbase has applied for numerous Bitcoin-related patents in the past, with nine filed in 2015 alone leading to critics accuse the exchange of seeking to create a monopoly on Bitcoin services, which CEO Brian Armstrong denied in a blog post on Medium which stated that the goal was to keep the technology out of the hands of patent trolls who would patent services and hold them for ransom.

In 2016, the exchange filed for a patent to secure Bitcoin private keys, and in a sense, this new system can be seen as a continuation of that which will allow other businesses to use the Coinbase Bitcoin payment portal.

Coinbase, the major US cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider, has entered the cryptocurrency gift card market, which will allow customers in certain countries to exchange their crypto points for gift cards according to their blog post on July 25.

Coinbase conference through a partnership with a UK-based startup WeGift, that the whole allow cryptocurrency users to pay for goods and services through brands like Google Play, Nike, Uber, Ticketmaster, and Zalando.

Starting immediately, Coinbase customers in Europe and Australia will be able to instantly spend their cryptocurrency balance on e-gift cards making it the first trading platform to offer immediate withdrawals to gift cards.

The service will initially be available to Coinbase users in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, and Australia with plans to expand the number of retailers and markets within the next 3 months. They also plan to expand to other countries within the year.

God’s Unchained is the first competitive e-sports game on the Ethereum network. The game recently launched with backing from Coinbase, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider.

Currently, the blockchain game has mainly been limited to a few collectibles which can be purchased inside the application where users buy and sell digital assets just like they would baseball cards.

The game has undoubtedly caught the attention of investors, however current data shows that daily active users are still rather low at time of this release.

UPDATE (8/1/2018): Guide To Purchasing Card Packs & Get Started Playing located below.

Hybrid Chain System Backed by Coinbase

The development company behind this revolutionary game, Fuel Games, previously launched another popular Ethereum based game by the name of Etherbots . It operated on the Ethereum network as a full on-chain game where every piece of data was created and sent to the Ethereum blockchain.

However, developers of God’s Unchained took a different approach to this game by including a hybrid on-chain and off-chain system. This allows information to be processed in batches and will prevent congesting the Ethereum network as well as provide users with a seamless experience.

The cofounder of the game, Robbie Ferguson explained…

“The cards are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, however players in God’s unchained will only initiate transactions on the network once they purchase cards or transfer existing ones. All other gameplay elements will run off-chain, which will allow gameplay to be indistinguishable from other games that do not utilize distributed ledger’s. This will permit millions of users to play without any noticeable waiting down of the network.”

Most notably , Fuel Games secured an investment from Coinbase ventures within its equity round of investing. Ferguson emphasized that having Coinbase involved with the launching of the game was clear validation regarding the efforts of the developers as well as the $50 billion industry of game asset trading on the Ethereum blockchain.

Two Layer Ethereum Solution Useful, but Not Necessary for Gods Unchained

Recently, the entire open source Ethereum development community has been focusing on Sharding and Plasma technologies. These are two-layer to scaling solutions which are expected to increase the capacity of the Ethereum network to over 1 million transactions per second.

However, Ferguson stated that Gods Unchained is not relying on the completion of these two developments in order to settle large amounts of data on the decentralized ecosystem. Fuel Game developers will be building their own unique system to cope with the current landscape of the Ethereum network.

Ferguson also states…

“The impact of Sharding and Plasma will be an extremely useful development for the Ethereum network in the near future. However, this is not necessary for Gods Unchained to run well. Trading may become a lot easier with these developments, however we’ve already made the necessary choices in order to ensure that gameplay will be seamless, regardless if Ethereum scales or not. Sharding and Plasma should not be rushed and it’s much better for developers and gamers to not rush into releasing these upgrades until they are fully tested.”

Gods Unchained: The New Generation Blockchain Games

Currently, there isn’t much known about Gods Unchained, however we do know that it will be free to play. There will be a series of game cards which can be won, as well as various rare assets that can be purchased with ether. The value of these digital assets can be changed once a developer decides to release more assets or offer special deals.

There will also be e-sports features to ensure that participants get a full multiplayer experience. Like most other blockchain based games, users will be able to exit the game whenever they like and make back or even generate a positive ROI by selling purchases they make or earn.

Gods Unchained Overview

How to Purchase Card Packs & Start Playing

If you need help installing the extension, check out the video guide located here

#2 – Purchase Card Packs

The card packs include five cards. Each pack includes up to one higher level playing card (rare, epic, legendary, shiny legendary) depending on the amount you paid.

Typically Legendary packs are the most powerful, followed by Shiny Legendary, Epic, Rare, and then Common.

gods unchained card pack purchase

#3 – Select Packs

Choose the type of packs you want to order and select from 1,6,18,50, or 100. We chose the rare pack to start, but was pleasantly surprised to find that we received 2 higher level cards in our pack of 5.

#4 – Purchasing Your Pack

The Metamask notification will enable you to submit your purchase to the Ethereum blockchain. Just click on the green submit button to continue.

You’ll also notice gwei, which is the ethereum transaction fee, also known as Gas. Typically a few gwei is enough to conduct a fast transaction. You can make adjustments to the gas transactions (faster or slower) on the ETH Gas Station.

#5 Pack Confirmation Order

Typically the websites will display a notification regarding the transaction wait time, which will usually take a few minutes to complete.

Once the transaction has completed, players will have full control of their playing cards as they are purchased on the ethereum blockchain and are not centrally controlled by a company like other games such as Hearthstone.

#6 Open Cards

Select the top right hand menu in order to open your cards. Next, drag the pack to the center pedestal in order to open it.

You’ll view a few cool animations and sound effects before opening your pack.
