As we enter the weekend and a new month, the crypto total market cap is clocking in at $114 billion USD, according to CoinMarketCap. Bitcoin (BTC), which is trading for $3478 at press time, has hit its sixth consecutive month of losses, even after briefly rallying to the $4000 mark in early January. Directly behind it, in terms of market cap, are XRP and Ether (ETH), which are trading for $0.30 and $107, respectively.
In a blog post on Medium yesterday, Fidelity Digital Assets revealed that its cryptocurrency trading and storage platform is in a "final testing and process refinement" phase. The platform was initially announced in October of 2018 and Fidelity is "currently serving a select set of eligible clients" as they "continue to build" their "initial solutions". An excerpt from the post reads:
Our operations, risk, and compliance teams are actively working with auditors to refine our policies and procedures, adapt existing operational processes, and to set new benchmarks for this aspect of cryptographic and blockchain-based finance.
The CBOE (Chicago Board Options Exchange) has re-submitted a rule change to list and trade shares of SolidX Bitcoin Shares issued by the VanEck SolidX Bitcoin Trust. The news was tweeted by VanEck digital asset strategy lead Gabor Gurbacs yesterday. If successful, the rule change could allow the Cboe BZX Exchange to list shares of a bitcoin ETF trust, which many believe would be a game-changer in terms of bringing new money into the space.
A press release yesterday indicates that crypto liquidity provider B2C2's UK subsidiary, B2C2 OTC Ltd., has received authorization from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority to arrange and deal in Contracts for Difference (CFDs) with eligible counterparties and professional clients. B2C2 founder and CEO Max Boonen commented:
"We are excited to have received authorisation from the FCA to introduce a cryptocurrency CFD product. Eligible counterparties and professional clients can now gain derivative exposure to the cryptocurrency markets, benefiting from the competitive pricing and liquidity they're accustomed to receiving from B2C2 while avoiding the risks associated with crypto custody."
Elsewhere in the UK, London South East reports that blockchain startup SatoshiPay has partnered with Axel Springer SE, one of Europe's largest digital publishers. The partnership will enable users to pay for content with the blockchain-powered SatoshiPay Wallet, which will be used to send direct payments from the user's device to the publisher without any intermediary. Meinhard Benn, Founder and CEO of SatoshiPay commented:
"We are excited to have Axel Springer as a partner, and one that already recognises the immense potential of blockchain technology. As one of the few companies with a market-ready blockchain payment solution, we want to bring this technology into the mainstream. This has been SatoshiPay's vision since its foundation in 2014. We would also like to thank the Stellar Development Foundation, which is in full support of this partnership".
