XRP Comeback as Market Shows Modest Recovery, Circle Announces USD Coin, Bitmain Posts Application for HKEX Listing, Coinbase to Introduce New Listing Process and Over 70 Banks to Join JPMorgan's Blockchain Payment Platform
Stocks discussed: (NYSE:JPM) (NYSE:RY) (ASX:ANX)
The crypto market has seen a modest recovery in the past 24 hours, with total market capitalization up to $216 billion USD at press time, according to CoinMarketCap. XRP has exhibited a 20 percent comeback since yesterday, briefly overtaking Ethereum (ETH) again to become the second largest crypto by market cap earlier today. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has also shown a decent comeback with 11.5 percent growth since yesterday.
Crypto finance company Circle today announced the launch of their US dollar-pegged stablecoin, USD Coin (USDC), in collaboration with open source consortium CENTRE. In a blog post, Circle co-founders Sean Neville and Jeremy Allaire explain how users can enrol in the service to deposit US dollars from bank accounts and then exchange them for tokens that can be used online. Similarly, users can cash out their tokens for US dollars with their bank accounts. Interestingly, USD Coin will not be exclusive to Circle, as CENTRE allows for other firms to come aboard.
"While Circle may be the first USDC issuer, we will certainly not be the last. Leveraging $20m in funding raised last year, CENTRE is launching its broader membership framework which includes other established financial technology firms as additional issuers. Over the coming weeks, CENTRE will share more about these other members beyond Circle."
Bitcoin mining giant Bitmain posted a draft application for public listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX). While the document does not show how much the firm will be valued at, it reveals that revenue from 2017 was $2.517 billion USD, a massive increase from the $137 million USD it made in 2015.
Crypto exchange giant Coinbase has announced in a blog post that they are introducing a new process that will allow them to list additional coins "rapidly". The new process allows issuers to submit a form for application on the network but Coinbase will still reserve the ability to list coins that have made no such application. Along with the expected increase in listings and rate of new listings, the company will improve its "tools and educational materials" to help customers keep up.
The Financial Times reports that more than 70 banks are joining JPMorgan’s (NYSE:JPM) Ethereum-based payment platform. The Interbank Information Network (IIN), an effort led by JPMorgan along with the Royal Bank of Canada (NYSE:RY) and the Australian and New Zealand Banking Group (ASX:ANZ), is intended to compete with blockchain-based payment solutions emerging from non-banks in the private sector. Bank analyst from JPMorgan Jason Goldberg said:
"Payment is one of the segments banks worry most about in terms of ceding to non-bank competition. Blockchain is a way to keep more of that [payments business] in-house."
Among the banks joining the platform are Société Générale and Santand
