Hedera Council Earmarks $5 Billion In HBAR Tokens to Drive Platform Adoption
The alternating governing council of 23 institutions at Hedera Hashgraph has set aside just below 11 billion HBAR tokens (which are worth about $5 billion) to enhance network adoption. Hedera also recently announced that just over 5 billion tokens (worth $2.5 billion) would be donated to the newly formed HBAR Foundation. The remainder would be allocated to various programs targeted at bolstering the growth of Hedera's ecosystem.
For those who might be unaware, Hedera is a transactional distributed ledger that uses a novel consensus technique called hashgraph to handle a greater number of transactions at scale comparative to traditional PoS (Proof-of-Stake) and PoW (Proof-of-Work) networks. The gossip protocol, a method of transmitting and receiving messages between nodes influenced by human chatter, epidemics, as well as social networks, is used to reach consensus in the hashgraph. Leading worldwide businesses such as LSE (London School of Economics and Political Science), Tata Communications, Wipro and Boeing all oversee and govern the platform.
The HBAR foundation, led by M&A industry and software expert Shayne Higdon , shall be an autonomous entity that has complete control over how the HBAR tokens it receives are deployed. The foundation intends to increase the Hedera network's usage in DeFi, NFTs, CBDCs, and other interesting areas such as that of gaming.
Shayne stated that the primary objective is to hence finance a future in which entrepreneurs build digitally native ecosystems and economies, as well as manage their own assets, markets, data, identities, and so much more. He added that his team is therefore thrilled to work with and assist anyone who shares this vision.
What To Expect Going Forward
According to Mance Harmon , Hedera Hashgraph's CEO, the Hedera network is currently the most energy-efficient, widely used, enterprise-grade public ledger that you can find on the market today, before also mentioning that future growth is largely dependent on bringing in more companies. He added that the Hedera Governing Council has thus pledged a major commitment towards accelerating the network's decentralized usage along with its growth.
Moreover, the foundation and certain other development projects will get the allotted HBAR tokens via Hedera Treasury accounts in the near future. At the Governing Council meeting which had taken place on July 14th, the general idea to dedicate 20% of the token supply to developmental projects was agreed upon and granted approval.
Additionally, the HBAR tokens will indeed be included in the released supply, but shall be distributed as grants to apps as well as ecosystem partners who will develop on and use the Hedera network for years to come.
AMC Theatres Now Accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin & Bitcoin Cash
AMC theatre announces expansion of their support for cryptocurrencies. Last week the revealed that they will soon be accepting ETH (Ethereum), BCH (Bitcoin Cash), and LTC (Litecoin) to the lineup of accepted currencies, with BTC (Bitcoin) announced already. "You will be able to pay for tickets and snacks with crypto at AMC theatres by the end of 2021" proclaims Adam Aron the CEO, in a Tweet.
This is another big step towards mainstream crypto adoption, and AMC hopes to lure a new market of tech savvy customers bearing crypto. While AMC is only one theatre chain, this story speaks to the broader consumer facing adoption of crypto as payment. As these corporate dominos contine to fall, it becomes easier and easier for other corporations to fall in line and make similar moves.
AMC and the MEME Economy
AMC stock price is up 2,100% year to date. This was thanks to the meme-stock frenzy earlier this year, though the price has now pulled back by 15%. Criticism is flying on Twitter regarding AMC's coin selection for acceptance. Some suggesting replacements in the line up such as DOGE (Dogecoin), expressing disappointment, and that AMC did not do their homework. Reading Tweets, &ldquoPerhaps no one in your boardroom is familiar with The People's Crypto, Dogecoin, which embodies the meme economy and the spirit of AMC. After this year I figured you would know a thing or two about the meme economy!". Our stance on this discussion is that, no matter how hard you try, 'you can't please everyone.' The adoption of any cryptocurrency as means of payment is a step in the right direction. Those mediums can change over time, but the inital step is often the hardest.
We are still unsure if AMC plans to hold these cryptocurrencies on their balance sheet, or convert them into cash as soon as they are received. Therefore we cannot say for certian if this is a wholehearted move in support of the crypto industry, or just another attempt to make the MEME economy happy.
Synapse.Network Partners with Rising Star Nakamoto.Games for IDO launch
The highly anticipated blockchain gaming platform Nakamoto.Games have partnered with Synapse.Network to list their native NAKA token for initial public and private sale. Nakamoto.Games is a play-to-earn gaming ecosystem, complete with a developer SDK, making it easy for any developer to create and monetize their own blockchain games.
The Nakamoto.Games Network Effect
The first project to launch on the platform pays homage to the original Nintendo game, Duck Hunt. Nakamoto.Games will release their modern-day rendition, Duck Hunters, where players spend NAKA tokens to buy ammo. The Nakamoto team is also hard at work building a suite of other games that will be launched at a later date. All games built on their platform will run on their native currency, NAKA tokens. All NAKA tokens spent in-game will be added to a prize pool that is periodically distributed to the top players of each game, providing an economic incentive for playing. We suspect that the carefully planned token economics, matched with the network effect created by the developer SDK will catapult Nakamoto.Games to the forefront of the crypto gaming ecosystem.
1st Gem on Synapse.Network
There was a lot of excitement from both communities when Nakamoto.Games announced their partnership with the cross-chain launchpad Synapse.Network for the launch. Synapse.Network is the world's first truly cross-chain project finance platform. Synapse is less than one month removed from their blistering public sale which saw the price of the SNP token skyrocket from $0.08 to over $0.70 in under 24 hours. Synapse has wasted no time and excited the community once again by choosing Nakamoto.Games as their first IDO listing on their platform.
10T Holdings Raises $750 Million For First Growth Equity Funds
As investment in the crypto industry has exploded this year, private equity company 10T Holdings has received over $400 million in commitments for its initial two growth equity funds relating to digital asset firms.10T raised about $750 million for the initiative, which includes the 10T Fund as well as the 10T DAE Expansion Fund, through co-investment and sub-advised vehicles. According to the firm, the majority of the cash has already been allocated.
&lsquoDemand for the offering was fantastic', - Dan Tapiero
The 10T Fund initially closed with roughly $120 million this past January, according to CEO Dan Tapiero, who noted that the demand regarding the offering was indeed so high that the business kept it available to investors. Furthermore, the fund's initial couple of investments, namely concerning that of both eToro and Kraken, grew astronomically, per the words of the CEO. With the exception of these two, the business opted to establish the 10T DAE Expansion Fund to make investments in the same organizations as the inaugural fund. The portfolios are therefore divided into three categories, namely bridges to virtual asset ecosystems, blockchain infrastructure firms, and finally next-generation financial services.
The CEO stated that the aim was always to include up to four businesses within every 'box', so to speak, and establish a diversified exposure for traders. The investors in question primarily consist of those who do not possess a comprehensive understanding of tokens, cryptocurrencies, protocols, or early-stage enterprises, as well as those who may not be all that venture-oriented.
What to Expect for Bitcoin and Crypto in General
The CEO predicts that BTC's price would rise to somewhere between $300,000 and $500,000 within the next three to four years. He added that the argument could be made for much higher numbers, but that the aforementioned range is more or less reasonable as of this time. He added that even now, only a decade or so after Bitcoin had burst onto the scene, the asset could be undervalued and many still fail to realize just how much of a global impact its introduction has truly had.
Of course, this is not to say that Bitcoin doesn't have its fair share of critics, as naysayers have been spouting the same rhetoric for a long time and continue to do so about how the world's biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization will not last in the long-term. For his part, Tapiero believes that while the younger generation is on board with cryptocurrencies, those aged above 60 are still not entirely convinced.
Bitcoin Day: El Salvador Officially Starts Accepting Bitcoin As Legal Tender
Last Tuesday, September 7th will now forever be remembered as Bitcoin day as it marked the first-day legislation came into effect for Bitcoin to become legal tender in El Salvador. The central American country became the world's inaugural nation to make Bitcoin (BTC) legal tender and official alternative currency. Proponents of digital money, including the nation's leader Nayib Bukele, believe that the new policy is certainly revolutionary, ground-breaking, and historic to say the least.
However, it must be said that the first several hours of Bitcoin's legal status in El Salvador were hampered by technological issues and glitches when the government launched its digital wallet software to the residents in the beginning. Still, the significance of this recent decision to legalize the flagship cryptocurrency cannot be understated, and while Bitcoin might currently be in a dip, the country's government is hopeful that this was the right move and has hence bought even more BTC.
Why did El Salvador do this?
President Bukele has stated that legalizing Bitcoin will encourage investment in the nation and benefit the nearly 70% of the country's citizens who lack access to conventional financial services. The leader added that there is both a need and a desire to break free from the norms of the past and that El Salvador has earned the right to progress into the developed world. Furthermore, per the decree of the nation's leader, all businesses will now be required to accept Bitcoin, however, there will be a choice to receive either USD or BTC regarding the settlement of various transactions.
President Bukele had additionally stated that utilizing Bitcoin would be an efficient method to transmit considerable amounts in remittances that Salvadorans residing outside the nation send back to their homeland annually. In related news, El Salvador's government also reportedly has 550 BTC at the moment, with the country's other official currency being the United States Dollar (USD).
Not Everyone is on Board
While there were expectedly some technological challenges such as glitches and minor hiccups when citizens started actually using BTC that are still being resolved, the fact remains that not everyone has been supportive of the decision to legalize Bitcoin. However, most of the protestors have stated that the primary reason as to why there is so much anti-Bitcoin sentiment is because a sizable portion of the country's residents does not know the first thing about the flagship cryptocurrency, or the cryptocurrency industry in general. President Bukele has nevertheless stated that education-based efforts will be administered in order to remedy this situation.
Furthermore, both the IMF and the World Bank have been hesitant to support the new decision, especially the former as the International Monetary Fund believes that legalizing Bitcoin could jeopardize the country's ties with the global organization.
Moreover, according to CNN, judges are chosen by El Salvador's parliament, which itself is largely governed by Bukele's party, declared this past Friday that the president may run for a 2nd term in 2024. According to a few analysts, this is reportedly prohibited by the national constitution. The decision, according to the U.S Embassy in El Salvador, &lsquosets a dangerous precedent and further erodes El Salvador's worldwide reputation as a liberal and reliable partner in the area'.
Meanwhile, other nations in the surrounding regions have expressed their support for the decision, and even Edward Snowden has praised El Salvador's efforts in legalizing Bitcoin.

Ripple Seeks Evidence of SEC Employees Trading XRP
The latest chapter of the Ripple vs. SEC saga was written last week when Ripple filed a petition to force the SEC to provide evidence detailing the trading behaviour of its employees as it pertains to BTC, ETH, and XRP. Ripple wants to know if SEC employees were actively holding or trading XRP. The letter additionally acknowledged that the defendant had already sought to obtain the anonymized trading records four times from the SEC and made no progress.
As per the defendant's legal counsel, Ripple wishes to learn about the SEC's trading regulations regarding regulating digital assets, as well as if the agency permitted its personnel to trade XRP. The court approved Ripple's request to force the SEC to submit such documents back in June.
Moreover, the regulator accordingly issued a guideline titled "Ethics Guidance Regarding Digital Assets" at the start of 2018. It demonstrated that, up until January 2018, the agency had not prohibited its employees from dealing in cryptocurrencies. This, according to Ripple, is congruent with the SEC's stance that digital assets would generally not be viewed as securities, and so the entire lawsuit, integrity and credibility are hence called into question.
Netburn's judgment came at the end of a recent phone call, which intended to make progress and move past a disagreement over Ripple's petition for 'fair use' access to confidential SEC information and documentation. Judge Netburn will now take part in an on-camera study of the internal papers without the presence of Ripple's legal team in an attempt to determine if the SEC crossed a line in terms of deliberative process procedures.
The abovementioned messages involve conversations about Ripple's goals of creating speculative trading via XRP, as well as the impact of Ripple announcements, efforts, and various concerns about XRP's price. The SEC is also interested in the connection and overall significance of XRP sales regarding Ripple's business activities, in addition to XRP's regulatory status.
Twitter Looks to Rollout Bitcoin Tipping for Content Creators on its Platform
Jack Dorsey and Twitter seem poised to deliver on the challenge posed by Elon Musk in their conversation at the B-Word conference, by integrating Bitcoin into payment methods for tipping of content creators on the social network. Twitter is reported to have included code in recent software update that indicates Bitcoin will be added to the Tip jar, joining Cash App, PayPal and Venmo as payment options. Jack spoke of his vision for Bitcoin implementation for his businesses in the B-Word, confronting Elon Musk with facts surrounding Bitcoin's true use of renewable energy, and Tesla's current position regarding accepting it as payment. Faced with the grounded in fact arguments Elon shifted the focus of the conversation by calling out Jack to move forward with Bitcoin acceptance in his businesses. Though Jack seemed to dodge answering the callout directly, his acknowledgement and smile provided a glimpse of his intent. Well Elon that Bitcoin adoption channel seems to be in the works, your move.
This move by Twitter to lay the ground work for Bitcoin acceptance on the platform is just the tip of the iceberg for Jack Dorsey and his companies. In August it was announced that Twitter and Square also had plans to build out a decentralized Bitcoin exchange, develop Bitcoin educational material, and plans for Square to roll out an assisted custody hardware wallet. Jack is moving forward with his plans and vision of Bitcoin as a key component of his future, and diving deep to explore the possibilities within his business lines.
Though he did not speak to his exact intentions for Bitcoin integration in the B-Word, he did indicate things were in the works, and Jack Dorsey's commitment to the best principles of Bitcoin were very well expressed. As mentioned in our earlier article, the B-Word was an explorative conversation between some forward thinking, influential minds, who can and are effecting adoption of Bitcoin for the right reasons. We like Jack Dorsey and his efforts developing creative and groundbreaking use cases for Bitcoin. Hopefully these latest announcements will spur Elon and Tesla to ante up, and also again accept Bitcoin payments.
Protocol Wars: Competition Heats up for Ethereum as Competitors Gain Traction
It's hard to argue that Ethereum (ETH) currently reigns supreme as the king of the altcoins, but does this mean that its dominance is unchallengeable? We have borne witness to quite a few altcoins spike both in price and value recently, to the point that it has left several crypto enthusiasts to wonder about whether Ethereum will stay atop the altcoin mountain or if it will eventually be overtaken by one of its main competitors. Here's are our top three picks in the battle against Ethereum for base-layer supremacy.
Solana has lately skyrocketed in popularity as the cryptocurrency's price continues to rise to new all-time highs. SOL was selling at around $30 a little over a month ago and the current price is a bit around $150, which is a phenomenal amount of growth, to say the least. Bandwidth and transaction costs are two issues that have often hampered cryptocurrencies. Solana overcomes both of these by enabling over 70,000 transactions per second at a low cost. It has additionally managed to perform more transactions since its debut in 2017 than that of Ethereum. Moreover, Solana's transaction speed and bandwidth make it ideal for general usage as well as the creation of exchanges and platforms on top of it.
Like Ethereum, Solana could soon begin burning tokens and like Cardano, smart contracts may be added soon too. Solanart, the project's NFT marketplace, had additionally managed to reach a new milestone of a million SOL in total volume. Make no mistake about it, Solana is highly scalable and a top contender that can certainly challenge Ethereum's dominance.
Currently sitting in the top three cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, Cardano (ADA) is only beaten by both Bitcoin (BTC) and its rival Ethereum. However, this is not to say that Charles Hoskinson's project hasn't been successful, far from it in fact. ADA was trading at less than $0.5 just over a year ago, which makes its recent growth all the more spectacular as it lately reached over $3 to set a new all-time high. With the Alonzo hard fork expected to occur on September 12th, we shall leave the &lsquoShelley' era behind and enter &lsquoGoguen', during which the highly anticipated smart contract capabilities will finally be added to the network. Once this happens, the developers will be allowed to build decentralized applications (dApps) on top of Cardano. Hoskinson is a former co-founder of Ethereum and while he has praised Vitalik Buterin for his work, it would not be a far-fetched assumption to say that Charles wouldn't want to challenge the altcoin king's dominance given his checkered history with it.
Polkadot may be defined as a platform that enables several blockchains to communicate messages, particularly value, in a trust-less manner, while sharing their unique features and pooling their security. In a nutshell, it is a scalable heterogeneous multi-chain technology.
Polkadot seems to be heterogeneous primarily because it is completely adaptable and makes no assumptions about the type or structure of the network's links. All non-blockchain systems could become parachains if certain requirements are met. Polkadot is similar to a collection of separate chains (such as Ethereum or Bitcoin), but with two significant additions, namely trust-free interchain transact ability and pooled security. Currently, DOT's price is $33 per token, and while Polkadot has dropped down the ranks a bit, it is still in the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap. Like Cardano, Polkadot was founded by a former Ethereum co-founder, Gavin Wood.
Kranz Finance Just Announced the Name of the New DEX Aggregator - Kranz Token (KRZ)
Interested in buying a cryptocurrency before it goes mainstream? Here's the opportunity.
FRISCO, Texas - On August 24th, the Kranz Finance team announced the name of the new Decentralized Exchange Aggregator that is under development: OnlySwap, becoming the only swap necessary to use. OnlySwap will be using Kranz Token as an Automated Market Maker Token and as a Reward Token that will be rewarding businesses proportionally on every transaction for accepting cryptocurrency. Since Kranz Token has a burn function on every transaction, the supply will become increasingly scarce over time, especially after full implementation on the exchange.
What Is Kranz Token? KRZ Token is an ERC-20 and BEP-20 token contract that is covering the cost for, and rewarding, businesses to start accepting cryptocurrency.
What costs does Kranz Token cover for businesses? With its Integration Fund, Kranz purchases any necessary technology (like a new tablet/computer) or the cost of any software development (like website integration) to make accepting cryptocurrency easier.
How is Kranz Token rewarding businesses? Kranz has a Reward Fund with token allocations specifically set aside for businesses that cooperate with them and start accepting cryptocurrency.
Where does Kranz Token get its funding? There is a 1% fee on every transaction (with a 3% sell fee on Uniswap and Pancakeswap). 50% of the fees are burned, 30% goes toward the Integration Fund, 10% goes toward the Reward Fund, and 10% goes toward Liquidity.
The DEX Aggregator is only the first step. The Decentralized Exchange Aggregator is currently under development by OnlySwap, Inc., but they also have plans to unify a Centralized Exchange with it on the same website. This upcoming Centralized Exchange will be completely covering the arbitrage and volatility for businesses so that they can accept cryptocurrency and have the $USD that they need to be deposited directly into their business bank account.
Businesses who would like to accept cryptocurrency should e-mail: [email protected]
How To buy Kranz: Kranz is available on XT.com, Uniswap, and Pancakeswap. KRZ is also available on the UniTrade bridge so that you can convert KRZ, back-and-forth, from an ERC-20 token to a BEP-20 token (https://www.unitrade.app/bridge).
