Tezos

We’re excited to announce that leading Tezos teams SmartPy and Cryptonomic are making Chainlink natively available to all developers building on Tezos. Oracles are a key component of a thriving blockchain ecosystem. As such, the SmartPy and Cryptonomic teams are working together to make Chainlink the go-to oracle solution for developers connecting their Tezos smart contracts to real world data and systems. Due to developer demand, Tezos will also be one of the first blockchains supported by Chainlink, further showcasing Tezos as an advanced ecosystem for developing next generation decentralized applications.

Integrating natively with Chainlink allows Tezos developers to harness the power of decentralized oracle networks to securely and reliably access key off-chain resources and use them in their on-chain applications. Oracles allow developers to build smart contracts that incorporate high-quality off-chain data, take advantage of external API services, connect to IoT infrastructure, interact with enterprise backends, interoperate with other blockchains, trigger settlements on existing payment networks, and much more.

Combining Tezos’s secure, institutional-grade smart contracts with Chainlink’s tamper-proof inputs and outputs enable the development of highly secure, data-enabled applications that are fully integrated with real-world data/systems. Chainlink and Tezos already share many node operators, making the integration seamless and the cross-platform support beneficial for both communities.

The technical integration is headed by top Tezos teams Smart Chain Arena, the team behind the widely-used Tezos smart contracts programming language SmartPy, and Cryptonomic, the team behind popular Tezos tools like the Galleon wallet, Conseil API, and Nautilus Cloud. Both teams are committing major code contributions to Chainlink’s GitHub repo.”We are thrilled to collaborate with Cryptonomic and bring Chainlink’s leading decentralized oracle network to Tezos. The quality and functionality of applications built on Tezos will be significantly enhanced with this ability to access Chainlink oracles natively on Tezos.” — SmartPy Team

“Providing Tezos developers with the most secure and reliable oracle solution is essential to advancing the Tezos ecosystem. After extensive research and discussion among various stakeholders, we identified Chainlink to be the most advanced, high-quality and secure oracle solution to integrate natively into Tezos. We recommend Tezos developers use Chainlink when building smart contracts as Chainlink’s secure decentralized oracle network makes possible a plethora of new use cases across DeFi, Equities, Insurance, and much more.” — Vishakh, Cryptonomic

“We look forward to bringing Chainlink’s oracle infrastructure to the Tezos ecosystem, supplying Tezos developers with high-quality data to power secure, truly reliable decentralized applications. Tezos is one of the most advanced blockchains in the space, offering many unique features that make it appealing to institutions and developers.

Honeywell Uses Blockchain To Digitize Aircraft Records, Parts Pedigree Data A comprehensive but simple searc

Published

on

Fundraising

For decades, aerospace companies and their customers have drowned in cumbersome documentation processes and storage mechanisms. Honeywell (NYSE: HON) is solving those problems by fully integrating aircraft record generation into its digital blockchain ledger. This provides Honeywell’s customers with an easy way to search and retrieve scattered data through a simple user interface, creating a level of speed and efficiency never before available in the aerospace industry.

Quick and easy access to this data is critical for airlines because most use dozens of repair facilities, and the paperwork from each is not integrated. Additionally, airlines and operators commonly deal with lost, printed paperwork associated with a part. This paperwork, or “trace documents,” are critical to maintaining the value of a part’s worth.

Honeywell’s blockchain is a secure, decentralized database crowd-sourced by all its authorized users. Each user that Honeywell allows has a copy of the database and knows its contents in real time. Instead of storing only PDF documents or a reference to the digital aircraft record, Honeywell now stores the actual form data “on chain.” This data is used to re-construct aircraft records, including records that prove the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has certified that aircraft parts are safe to fly. These records can be accessed by customers, and in the case where paperwork is missing, customers can simply input the part number and serial number and the user interface will retrieve the data from the blockchain and “rebuild” the missing document.

“Honeywell’s offering is like a search engine, but it works for anything and everything related to aircraft parts and service,” said Lisa Butters, general manager for Honeywell’s GoDirect Trade and applications owner for blockchain technologies. “Honeywell manufactures and repairs thousands of aerospace parts each day, and now all of those events, including the generated air worthiness certificates, go on chain. In aerospace, this is a game-changing technology that will simplify and transform recordkeeping for aircraft owners and airlines around the world.”

In its purest form, blockchain technology creates trust between all parties on the chain through digital transparency. The goal of the company is not to be the only aerospace company creating unified aircraft records on chain, but rather to collaborate and be an implementation partner so others can leverage the same technology.

“Blockchain is unique because it’s a team sport,” said Butters. “This isn’t just about Honeywell data. In fact, this is not just about aerospace data. Whether you are in aerospace, automotive, electronics or consumer products, I envision all manufacturing OEMs and repair shops pushing quality documentation and part provenance data to the blockchain, so customers have easy access.”

Adding data to the blockchain ledger does not replace regulatory authorities’ current document requirements, but rather supplements them more efficiently. Honeywell now unpacks all that parts and repair data and makes it immutable, searchable and accessible to everyone in its permissions-based ecosystem.

Honeywell first implemented blockchain technology with the launch of GoDirect Trade in late 2018. This online marketplace for buying and selling new and used aircraft parts leverages blockchain to include images and quality documents for the exact part being offered for sale, giving the buyer more confidence about purchasing the part. More than 2,700 companies and 7,000 users are active on GoDirect Trade today, and more than 80 storefronts have combined to process more than $8 million in transactions since the marketplace’s launch.

Huobi Group

Huobi Group, the world leading Blockchain Company, has announced the establishment of Huobi DeFi Labs. Huobi DeFi Labs is the platform for DeFi (Decentralized Finance) research, investment, and incubation and eco system building in DeFi space. It aims to build a better financial system in collaborations with the global crypto and DeFi community for the future.

“Huobi as the leading crypto financial services provider in Asia and worldwide, our mission is to provide the best crypto financial products and services to our users regardless it is CeFi or DeFi,” said Leon Li, founder and CEO of Huobi Group. “We are excited to join as a part of the global DeFi ecosystem and will be very honoured to work with the global community to provide the best support possible.”

The DeFi initiatives will be led by Huobi’s Chief Investment Officer Sharlyn Wu, who was a Wall Street veteran, ex UBS and also have been leading blockchain investment at China Merchant Bank International.

“Over the past two years, we have witnessed the birth and exponential growth of DeFi. The width, depth and speed of innovations are unparalleled in human history. It is exciting to see the power of permissionless economy unleashed at global scale. However, there are still many problems to be solved at theoretical and technical level,” said Sharyn Wu, Huobi’s Chief Investment Officer. “There is also a lot of investor education to do in order to bring crypto and DeFi to mainstream users. As DeFi is still in its infancy, it needs collective efforts from the global community to build and grow the space together.”

Huobi Group will allocate tens of millions of dollars to an initial investment fund, which will be managed by Huobi DeFi Labs. The team consists of 4 research and investment professionals initially.

The DeFi Labs will be focused on the following three areas:

  • Research of underlying financial theories and technology
  • Investment and incubation of DeFi projects
  • Work with the best DeFi projects to service the entire ecosystem

DeFi and CeFi to Collectively Change the Landscapes of Traditional Finance

Sharyn Wu explains why Huobi group invests in the DeFi space and Huobi DeFi Labs’ mission:

  • DeFi brings many benefits including transparency and composability, which will improve the efficiency and governance of finance to the next level. More importantly, for the first time ever, it is possible to create a finance system without credit risk and principal agency risk.
  • This system can provide people with trust, safety and certainty, which are not present in our society today. When financial institutions, which are professional at pricing risks come in, they look at the risk parameters, they will tell that this trust-less model deserves better pricing because it removes the risks and uncertainties caused by human behaviors.
  • This will also benefit average users in the ecosystem hugely as every user regardless where they are can tap into the global liquidity pool and all the financial products worldwide through their mobile.
  • Crypto is a perfect system for finance. As blockchain technology optimizes over time, DeFi and CeFi to collective change the landscapes of traditional finance and serve the use cases they are best suited for. Huobi strives to work with the entire crypto and DeFi ecosystem to reshape the global financial systems.
  • Crypto will disrupt finance as the internet has managed to change many other industries. Today is a world that every business operates with their ledger. Society is operating at huge costs for account reconciliations and monopolies ruling out long tail. The power of millions of ledgers merging into one will enable that every user, asset and data is accessible to the entire ecosystem at literally zero costs.

Zero-Confirmation Asset Transfers Launch on FTX

Published

on

Blockchain

Fireblocks (www.fireblocks.com), an award-winning digital asset security and asset transfer platform, announced today the official launch of its Deposit Acceleration Program to partner with top global exchanges on providing the fastest on-chain settlement times for the crypto buy-side. FTX, an exchange that offers innovative products including industry-first derivatives, options, volatility products, and leveraged tokens, is the first to join the Deposit Acceleration Program, enabling Fireblocks customers to deploy assets onto the FTX exchange in real-time with zero confirmations.

The Deposit Acceleration Program is designed to bring new institutional trading volume to exchanges while accelerating on-chain trading operations for digital asset businesses. Bitstamp, the largest crypto exchange by volume, joined the pilot program a few months back, offering one confirmation deposits to Fireblocks Network members. In the first month of joining, volume to the exchange increased by 30% from the Fireblocks Network. Now, FTX has joined as the first exchange to offer Fireblocks customers zero-confirmation deposits.

“We’re really excited about partnering with the Fireblocks team to solve some of the core latency issues around moving digital assets on-chain,” said Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO and Founder of FTX. “As the first member of the program, we now have the fastest settlement venue for institutional traders.”

Exchanges require the pre-funding of assets to receive trading credit, which can take anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour. This process is cumbersome for the buy-side, requiring effective risk management in terms of managing exchange liquidity. At the same time, it directly impacts a trader’s ability to take advantage of arbitrage opportunities. Operations and treasury teams are forced to allocate assets on exchanges even if market forces don’t necessarily indicate they should be trading on that exchange.

For derivatives traders, slow collateral transfers can result in the auto-liquidation of a position. The zero confirmation capability is critical for derivatives trading as it mitigates trading losses and unlocks the ability to trade during volatile markets.

“Exchanges are looking for creative ways to drive volume and stay competitive,” said Stephen Richardson, VP of Product Strategy at Fireblocks. “The Deposit Acceleration Program is a great way to enable Fireblocks customers to trade on an exchange more actively because being able to deploy assets quickly with their exchange partners directly impacts their ability to drive return on capital.”

Once an exchange has joined the Deposit Acceleration Program and the integration is live on the Fireblocks Network, customers will see an “ultra-fast” label next to the exchange’s name. New exchanges are being onboarded into the program today and will be activated on a rolling basis.

Riot Blockchain Receives 1,000 S19 Pro Antminers from Bitmain

Published

Riot

Riot Blockchain, Inc. (NASDAQ: RIOT) (“Riot” or the “Company”), has received 1,000 S19 Pro miners, the first of three orders cumulatively totaling 3,040, S19 and S19 Pro Antminers from BitmainTech PTE. LTD. (“Bitmain”), at Coinmint’s Massena, New York facility. Deployment of these 1,000 new S19 Pro generation miners has commenced and is expected to be completed by Friday, July 17, 2020.

Riot recently relocated its mining operations to Massena, New York for a number of benefits, the largest of which was to take advantage of the extremely competitive electricity costs in the New York ISO market. Once the 1,000 S19 Pro miners are installed and fully operational, Riot’s active mining portfolio will consist of 4,000 S17 Pros and 1,000 S19 Pros. As a result, the Company’s aggregate hashing power capacity will increase by 45% from current levels to approximately 357 PH/s and consume 12.8 megawatts of power. This level of energy efficiency is the result of Riot’s continued efforts to build its operations with the highest performance mining hardware on the market.

Once all 3,040 Bitmain S19 Pro and S19 miners are received and deployed, Riot estimates that the aggregate hashing power capacity of its then fleet of 7,040 next generation miners (4,000 S17 Pro, 2,000 S19 Pro and 1,040 S19 miners) will be approximately 566 PH/s, representing a 129% increase over the Company’s current hash rate capacity. Riot expects the additional S19 miners to be shipped, 1,040 in July and 1,000 in September / October.

“The initial phase of the Riot Blockchain transformation is now complete,” said Remo Mancini, Chairman of Riot Blockchain. “We have embarked on a systematic risk mitigation effort to benefit all shareholders. We have overseen the termination of the SEC investigation and have improved the Company’s financial profile by eliminating all long-term debt, adding significant positive working capital, and reducing our operating overhead by relocating to a lower-cost facility.”

“We have also streamlined our operational capabilities by reorganizing our management team, closing RiotX and focusing on the production of bitcoin, of which the Company now has over 1,000 in inventory. We have completely upgraded the Company’s mining fleet and are on-track to achieving a hash rate capacity of approximately 566 PH/s by Q4 of 2020, utilizing highly power efficient mining hardware. We are now well-positioned to embark on the second phase of Riot Blockchain’s transformation.”

In the current phase of Riot Blockchain’s transformation, Riot plans to continue increasing its aggregate hash rate capacity and exceeding 1 exahash per second (“Eh/s”) in early 2021, continue to assess its ongoing human resources requirements and manage expenses. In addition, supported by its Board of Directors and Advisory Board, the Company will also continue to work with XMS Capital in evaluating opportunities to further increase shareholder value.

OKEx

OKEx, a world-leading cryptocurrency spot and derivatives exchange, has reached a strategic partnership with Settle Network, a global fiat-crypto solution provider. Through the latter’s product, Latamex, OKEx users can now buy Bitcoin (BTC) and ether (ETH) on the exchange with Argentine peso (ARS), Brazilian real (BRL) and Mexican peso (MXN) using a direct bank transfer.

Settle Network is the largest digital assets settlement network across Latin America for exchange and cross-border payments, providing programmatic interoperability between traditional and digital assets by leveraging financial infrastructures of LATAM countries.

“One of the important goals of OKEx is to enable everyone to enjoy intermediary-free financial services by promoting the blockchain-driven economy. For that, it’s essential to lower the threshold for the exchange between cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies in order to cover users in more countries and regions,” said Jay Hao, CEO of OKEx. “The cooperation with Settle Network is of strategic significance to OKEx. Latin American users can now purchase BTC and ETH with multiple local currencies in a compliant way through bank transfers. In the future, OKEx will continue to expand the coverage of fiat currencies to allow more users to purchase cryptocurrencies more conveniently.”

Since the world economy has suffered from setbacks for some time, people have begun to reflect on the problems in the existing financial system — among which, the unbanked has become an unavoidable topic. Currently, about 2 billion adults worldwide do not have bank accounts, and Latin Americans make up a large portion of them. Be that as it may, thanks to its intermediary-free nature, cryptocurrency has begun to play an increasingly important role in the field of financial services.

For most people, the first step to enjoying blockchain-driven financial services is to convert local currencies to cryptocurrencies. As of now, OKEx has supported a vast number of fiat currencies worldwide. Thanks to the partnership with Settle Network, through its wide array of products — such as Latamex, Settle X, PSP Xramp, etc. — OKEx users will enjoy a much-improved experience in crypto-to-fiat trading and payment processing through bank transfers.
