The Next Crypto Wave: The Rise of Stablecoins and its Entry to the U.S. Dollar Market

The Next Crypto Wave: The Rise of Stablecoins and its Entry to the U.S. Dollar Market

Author: Christian Hsieh, CEO of Tokenomy
This paper examines some explanations for the continual global market demand for the U.S. dollar, the rise of stablecoins, and the utility and opportunities that crypto dollars can offer to both the cryptocurrency and traditional markets.
The U.S. dollar, dominant in world trade since the establishment of the 1944 Bretton Woods System, is unequivocally the world’s most demanded reserve currency. Today, more than 61% of foreign bank reserves and nearly 40% of the entire world’s debt is denominated in U.S. dollars1.
However, there is a massive supply and demand imbalance in the U.S. dollar market. On the supply side, central banks throughout the world have implemented more than a decade-long accommodative monetary policy since the 2008 global financial crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic further exacerbated the need for central banks to provide necessary liquidity and keep staggering economies moving. While the Federal Reserve leads the effort of “money printing” and stimulus programs, the current money supply still cannot meet the constant high demand for the U.S. dollar2. Let us review some of the reasons for this constant dollar demand from a few economic fundamentals.

Demand for U.S. Dollars

Firstly, most of the world’s trade is denominated in U.S. dollars. Chief Economist of the IMF, Gita Gopinath, has compiled data reflecting that the U.S. dollar’s share of invoicing was 4.7 times larger than America’s share of the value of imports, and 3.1 times its share of world exports3. The U.S. dollar is the dominant “invoicing currency” in most developing countries4.

This U.S. dollar preference also directly impacts the world’s debt. According to the Bank of International Settlements, there is over $67 trillion in U.S. dollar denominated debt globally, and borrowing outside of the U.S. accounted for $12.5 trillion in Q1 20205. There is an immense demand for U.S. dollars every year just to service these dollar debts. The annual U.S. dollar buying demand is easily over $1 trillion assuming the borrowing cost is at 1.5% (1 year LIBOR + 1%) per year, a conservative estimate.

Secondly, since the U.S. has a much stronger economy compared to its global peers, a higher return on investments draws U.S. dollar demand from everywhere in the world, to invest in companies both in the public and private markets. The U.S. hosts the largest stock markets in the world with more than $33 trillion in public market capitalization (combined both NYSE and NASDAQ)6. For the private market, North America’s total share is well over 60% of the $6.5 trillion global assets under management across private equity, real assets, and private debt investments7. The demand for higher quality investments extends to the fixed income market as well. As countries like Japan and Switzerland currently have negative-yielding interest rates8, fixed income investors’ quest for yield in the developed economies leads them back to the U.S. debt market. As of July 2020, there are $15 trillion worth of negative-yielding debt securities globally (see chart). In comparison, the positive, low-yielding U.S. debt remains a sound fixed income strategy for conservative investors in uncertain market conditions.

Last, but not least, there are many developing economies experiencing failing monetary policies, where hyperinflation has become a real national disaster. A classic example is Venezuela, where the currency Bolivar became practically worthless as the inflation rate skyrocketed to 10,000,000% in 20199. The recent Beirut port explosion in Lebanon caused a sudden economic meltdown and compounded its already troubled financial market, where inflation has soared to over 112% year on year10. For citizens living in unstable regions such as these, the only reliable store of value is the U.S. dollar. According to the Chainalysis 2020 Geography of Cryptocurrency Report, Venezuela has become one of the most active cryptocurrency trading countries11. The demand for cryptocurrency surges as a flight to safety mentality drives Venezuelans to acquire U.S. dollars to preserve savings that they might otherwise lose. The growth for cryptocurrency activities in those regions is fueled by these desperate citizens using cryptocurrencies as rails to access the U.S. dollar, on top of acquiring actual Bitcoin or other underlying crypto assets.

The Rise of Crypto Dollars

Due to the highly volatile nature of cryptocurrencies, USD stablecoin, a crypto-powered blockchain token that pegs its value to the U.S. dollar, was introduced to provide stable dollar exposure in the crypto trading sphere. Tether is the first of its kind. Issued in 2014 on the bitcoin blockchain (Omni layer protocol), under the token symbol USDT, it attempts to provide crypto traders with a stable settlement currency while they trade in and out of various crypto assets. The reason behind the stablecoin creation was to address the inefficient and burdensome aspects of having to move fiat U.S. dollars between the legacy banking system and crypto exchanges. Because one USDT is theoretically backed by one U.S. dollar, traders can use USDT to trade and settle to fiat dollars. It was not until 2017 that the majority of traders seemed to realize Tether’s intended utility and started using it widely. As of April 2019, USDT trading volume started exceeding the trading volume of bitcoina12, and it now dominates the crypto trading sphere with over $50 billion average daily trading volume13.

https://preview.redd.it/3vq7v1jg09p51.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=46f11b5f5245a8c335ccc60432873e9bad2eb1e1
An interesting aspect of USDT is that although the claimed 1:1 backing with U.S. dollar collateral is in question, and the Tether company is in reality running fractional reserves through a loose offshore corporate structure, Tether’s trading volume and adoption continues to grow rapidly14. Perhaps in comparison to fiat U.S. dollars, which is not really backed by anything, Tether still has cash equivalents in reserves and crypto traders favor its liquidity and convenience over its lack of legitimacy. For those who are concerned about Tether’s solvency, they can now purchase credit default swaps for downside protection15. On the other hand, USDC, the more compliant contender, takes a distant second spot with total coin circulation of $1.8 billion, versus USDT at $14.5 billion (at the time of publication). It is still too early to tell who is the ultimate leader in the stablecoin arena, as more and more stablecoins are launching to offer various functions and supporting mechanisms. There are three main categories of stablecoin: fiat-backed, crypto-collateralized, and non-collateralized algorithm based stablecoins. Most of these are still at an experimental phase, and readers can learn more about them here. With the continuous innovation of stablecoin development, the utility stablecoins provide in the overall crypto market will become more apparent.

Institutional Developments

In addition to trade settlement, stablecoins can be applied in many other areas. Cross-border payments and remittances is an inefficient market that desperately needs innovation. In 2020, the average cost of sending money across the world is around 7%16, and it takes days to settle. The World Bank aims to reduce remittance fees to 3% by 2030. With the implementation of blockchain technology, this cost could be further reduced close to zero.
J.P. Morgan, the largest bank in the U.S., has created an Interbank Information Network (IIN) with 416 global Institutions to transform the speed of payment flows through its own JPM Coin, another type of crypto dollar17. Although people argue that JPM Coin is not considered a cryptocurrency as it cannot trade openly on a public blockchain, it is by far the largest scale experiment with all the institutional participants trading within the “permissioned” blockchain. It might be more accurate to refer to it as the use of distributed ledger technology (DLT) instead of “blockchain” in this context. Nevertheless, we should keep in mind that as J.P. Morgan currently moves $6 trillion U.S. dollars per day18, the scale of this experiment would create a considerable impact in the international payment and remittance market if it were successful. Potentially the day will come when regulated crypto exchanges become participants of IIN, and the link between public and private crypto assets can be instantly connected, unlocking greater possibilities in blockchain applications.
Many central banks are also in talks about developing their own central bank digital currency (CBDC). Although this idea was not new, the discussion was brought to the forefront due to Facebook’s aggressive Libra project announcement in June 2019 and the public attention that followed. As of July 2020, at least 36 central banks have published some sort of CBDC framework. While each nation has a slightly different motivation behind its currency digitization initiative, ranging from payment safety, transaction efficiency, easy monetary implementation, or financial inclusion, these central banks are committed to deploying a new digital payment infrastructure. When it comes to the technical architectures, research from BIS indicates that most of the current proofs-of-concept tend to be based upon distributed ledger technology (permissioned blockchain)19.

https://preview.redd.it/lgb1f2rw19p51.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=040bb0deed0499df6bf08a072fd7c4a442a826a0
These institutional experiments are laying an essential foundation for an improved global payment infrastructure, where instant and frictionless cross-border settlements can take place with minimal costs. Of course, the interoperability of private DLT tokens and public blockchain stablecoins has yet to be explored, but the innovation with both public and private blockchain efforts could eventually merge. This was highlighted recently by the Governor of the Bank of England who stated that “stablecoins and CBDC could sit alongside each other20”. One thing for certain is that crypto dollars (or other fiat-linked digital currencies) are going to play a significant role in our future economy.

Future Opportunities

There is never a dull moment in the crypto sector. The industry narratives constantly shift as innovation continues to evolve. Twelve years since its inception, Bitcoin has evolved from an abstract subject to a familiar concept. Its role as a secured, scarce, decentralized digital store of value has continued to gain acceptance, and it is well on its way to becoming an investable asset class as a portfolio hedge against asset price inflation and fiat currency depreciation. Stablecoins have proven to be useful as proxy dollars in the crypto world, similar to how dollars are essential in the traditional world. It is only a matter of time before stablecoins or private digital tokens dominate the cross-border payments and global remittances industry.
There are no shortages of hypes and experiments that draw new participants into the crypto space, such as smart contracts, new blockchains, ICOs, tokenization of things, or the most recent trends on DeFi tokens. These projects highlight the possibilities for a much more robust digital future, but the market also needs time to test and adopt. A reliable digital payment infrastructure must be built first in order to allow these experiments to flourish.
In this paper we examined the historical background and economic reasons for the U.S. dollar’s dominance in the world, and the probable conclusion is that the demand for U.S. dollars will likely continue, especially in the middle of a global pandemic, accompanied by a worldwide economic slowdown. The current monetary system is far from perfect, but there are no better alternatives for replacement at least in the near term. Incremental improvements are being made in both the public and private sectors, and stablecoins have a definite role to play in both the traditional and the new crypto world.
Thank you.

The ’Prototype’ Narrative - Sunsetting BTC

I usually pitch BSV to between 5 and 10 people a day, and have been doing so on average for five days a week, since around mid February when I first bought into BSV myself.
I started paying attention to Wright in 2017 after I saw his talk at Arnhem*, and then again seriously in November last year after the CoinGeek conference in London, but it took me a couple of months to dig through all of the available information and make absolutely sure that my gut reaction was correct and that my intuition wasn’t lying to me before I decided to go full ‘BSVtard’.
(I have been in Bitcoin since May 2012, but left in 2014, and didn't get seriously involved again until 2017. I stepped out for most of 2018).
The people I pitch to are mostly financial types like Investment Bankers, Wealth Managers, M&A analysts, Risk Assessors, IT admins and system engineers at banks, Lawyers, Accountants, Stock Brokers, Liquidity specialists, Entrepreneurs and Stock, Bond and Forex Traders
I estimate I’ve done around 300 pitches in the last three months to employees of JPM, Citibank, Barclays, Credit Suisse, EY, KPMG, HSBC, BNP Paribas and the FCA, amongst others.
I have memorised Wright’s narrative, watched and rewatched his videos and interviews over and over again, and constantly read and re-read his blog in order to keep up to date with current events and developments.
I’ve found that in my own pitches, presenting BTC as ‘the prototype’ can be quite a neat way of explaining why BTC with a 1Mb block size has a limited capacity and is not really a good business solution for their industry.
It’s just a small stub of an idea, because the truth is quite different, but if you put it in its historical context, I think it makes sense.
Like the Wright brothers’ first attempt at flight, the first prototype of BitCoin may well crash and burn.
I’m also a fan of the ‘BitCoin as a jet engine’ analogy, wherein the block acts like a combustion chamber into which raw transactional data is fed, and from which information is then extracted, that then powers an information economy.
The circular velocity of energy in the system increases as more and more data is fed into the block, and more and more information is extracted, refined, sold, disseminated and recycled.
The result is a kind of ‘data ramjet’, which propels the value of BSV upwards as its circular velocity through the block chain and the mining economy increases.

CVS以競業限制訴訟 力抗AMZN公司在醫保產業的蠶食鯨吞 法官裁决处罚

CVS以競業限制訴訟 力抗AMZN公司在醫保產業的蠶食鯨吞 法官裁决处罚
當市場傳言亞馬遜 (AMZN-US) 將在 2017 年跨入醫療保健領域時,醫療保健企業高管有個現成的答案:我們並不害怕。
Walgreens (WBA-US) CEO Stefano Pessina 在 2017 年 7 月的財報電話會議上告訴投資人,「我真的不相信亞馬遜會在未來幾年內對這個市場感興趣。」
CVS (CVS-US) CEO Larry Merlo 在去年 8 月說,「我認為我們有很多能力和超值方案可以在市場上有效競爭。」
但最近的法律訴訟案卻呈現了完全不同的面相, 暴露了AMZN丑陋的不正当竞争活动。
4 月間,CVS 對負責 CVS Caremark 零售藥房網絡的前高級副總裁 John Lavin 提起訴訟。之前 Lavin 告訴該公司他將離職去亞馬遜的藥房部門 PillPack 工作。本週法官裁定 CVS 勝訴,有權阻止 Lavin 立即在 PillPack 上班。
今年 1 月也有另一起案件,保險業巨頭 UnitedHealth (UNH-US) 起訴其一名試圖加入亞馬遜發起企業的員工。涉及的是亞馬遜與波克夏控股 (BRK.A-US) 和 J.P. 摩根公司 (JPM-US) 共同出資成立的健康合資公司 Haven。
這些訴訟表明,現有業者比在公開場合的談話更在乎這股趨勢的發展。它們潛在的擔憂是:亞馬遜直接面對投保大眾。
亞馬遜對其醫療保健戰略幾乎從未公開表態,它可能透過與保險公司就藥品定價直接談判,削減現有藥房福利管理制度 (PBM) 來攪亂這個領域。而上面所有這些作法都可以降低消費者的醫療保健成本。
除其他功能外,PBM 可協助保險公司協商降低藥品成本。製造商透過管理人員安排折扣,以便可在 PBM 的首選藥物清單上確定其產品的位置。據一位熟悉 CVS 業務的人士表示,這項業務市場龐大,光是 2018 年,CVS 的 PBM 業務就約佔其總營收的 60%,約合 1160 億美元
亞馬遜 PillPack CEO TJ Parker 在 Lavin 案件中作證,向法院承認該公司已「探索了產業中許多不同的事物」。但他表示,該公司「沒有立即計劃」與 CVS Caremark 的核心產品 PBM 競爭。
在阻止 Lavin 為 PillPack 工作的訴訟案中,CVS 當然有不同的想法。
CVS 在提出初步禁令的動議中指出,「鑑於其強大的基礎設施、營運能力和分銷範圍,亞馬遜的 PillPack 具有獨特的優勢,可以直接與付款人 (保險公司) 進行談判,取代 CVS Caremark 的服務。」
換句話說,CVS 擔心亞馬遜將聘請 Lavin 接觸其保險公司客戶,達成交易以削弱 CVS 的 PBM。
特別是,CVS 指稱 PillPack 已經接觸 Blue Cross Blue Shield。
CVS 在動議中指出,「最近亞馬遜的 PillPack 與 Blue Cross Blue Shield 進行了直接討論,Blue Shield 是一個承保超過 1 億美國人、由 36 項健保方案組成的聯合組織,為其成員提供處方藥送貨到府服務。」
如果亞馬遜 PillPack 未來決定與其直接簽訂合同,與客戶打交道多年的 Lavin 將如魚得水。
根據看過法院文件的 Jefferies 分析師 Brian Tanquilut 說法,亞馬遜可能接觸保險公司直接削減 CVS Caremark 業務的威脅的確存在,「這起訴訟表明,藥房福利管理人員現在也有被解除中介的風險。」
對於這種說法,PillPack 的發言人回覆:「重要的是要記住,這裡提到的是另一家公司對我們商業戰略的猜測,因為亞馬遜和 PillPack 都不是訴訟當事人。」
然而,其他藥品供應鏈專家一致認為,PBM 有理由擔心,特別是隨著健康產業的整合和政策制訂者正在推動 PBM 對其業務執行更加透明。
曾在 McKesson (MCK-US) 工作過的藥物供應鏈專家 Stephen Buck 說,「PBM 將比以往都更加保護他們的郵寄藥房業務,而不再歡迎像是 PillPack 那樣的局外人。」
就 Lavin 而言,在與前雇主的溝通中表示,他不會與他們正面競爭,而是會從桌子的另一邊進行談判。根據訴訟文件,他在給 CVS 人事部門的電子郵件中說道,「我將處理 PillPack 與 PBM 的談判。換句話說,它將與我在 CVS 所做事的相反。」
但法官不同意其論點,並授予 CVS 強制執行非競爭協議的動議,18 個月內 Lavin 不得為 PillPack 工作。
在裁決中,John J. McConnell 法官寫道,「Lavin 先生同時也與私人客戶和公共客戶談判並建立關係,他們都是當前的 CVS 客戶。」「看來 PillPack 還希望直接與保險公司和保險客戶級別的其他人進行談判。」

哈哈 zt三年大规模购债 欧洲央行可能在"养活"一批僵尸企业 by 记得少年时 on 2018-07-24

三年大规模购债 欧洲央行可能在"养活"一批僵尸企业
http://finance.sina.com.cn/stock/usstock/c/2018-07-20/doc-ihfqtahh8802350.shtml
欧洲央行的大规模购债计划可能掩盖了市场存在的一些巨大风险。
摩根大通(113.35, 2.07, 1.86%)资产管理公司(JPMorgan Asset Management)CEO欧朵思(Mary Callahan Erdoes)周三在谈论欧洲债券购买项目的影响时表示,欧洲央行购买企业债的行为扭曲了债券市场,使投资者难以看清市场中存在的风险,一些风险大的企业得以发行债券,当欧洲央行结束购债时,投资者可能会发现一些“行走的僵尸企业”。“但你甚至都还不知道,”欧朵思说。
欧洲央行自2015年3月起开始起债券购买项目。除欧元区公共部门债券外,欧洲央行还一直在购买企业债券,这极大影响了欧洲的企业债券市场,导致企业债券收益率接近零。
尽管最近有所上升,但在去年欧洲央行购买企业债最为疯狂的时候,欧元区垃圾债券平均收益率曾下跌至2.08%的低位。2.08%的收益率基本上刚刚能补足欧元区的通胀(目前大约在2%左右),这就意味着,信贷风险根本就没有被计算在内。
欧洲央行大规模购债使得债券收益率落入负值区间。这种情况下,为了弥补通胀,投资者愿意承担风险,投资者的钱甚至也流入了风险最大的僵尸公司。
企业也利用了投资者的这种疯狂。过去三年,流通在外的企业欧元计价债券飙升了45%至1.5万亿欧元(约合1.75万亿美元),这也包括,美国垃圾公司发行的创纪录的欧元债券。
尽管欧洲央行不购买垃圾债券,只购买投资级和未分级债券,但其购债行为扭曲了债券市场,本来不应该出售债券的公司也能以低成本发行债券。
欧洲央行有意在今年年底前结束购债,届时,投资者可能就会发现有一大批僵尸企业存在。
“你对优等生和那些只来上课但不做作业的学生给予同等奖励……这是极端危险的局面,因为当(购债)被撤回的时候,市场在某种程度上能够区分出好坏,相对于政府,这里还存在真正的买家,然后,你研究后就会发现,‘这并不完全一样’。”欧朵思说。
欧洲央行在上个月的议息会议上表示,可能将在今年年底前接受购债,而现行利率将维持到至少2019年夏天结束。
包括美联储、欧洲央行、日本央行在内的全球主要央行在金融危机后都实施了包括资产购买在内的超宽松货币政策,帮助刺激了危机后脆弱的经济。但另一方面,大量流动性带来的充足信贷供给也导致一些企业过度借贷,其中不乏高风险企业。而随着央行逐渐退出超宽松货币政策,那些高负债、偿债能力不足的企业将直接受到冲击,并有可能会出现违约。
目前,越来越多的央行正在跟随美联储加息。据《华尔街日报》20日报道,今年第一季度,共有六家央行跟随美联储收紧货币政策,这一数字在第二季度增加至七个。美联储预期将在9月议息会议上加息,而未来一个季度,大约将有七家央行跟进,如英国央行、印度央行、印尼央行、土耳其央行、挪威央行。

Junior traders are leaving Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to pursue technology careersGoldman Sachs and JPMorgan want to keep their technology staff happy. Goldman has hiked pay for its technology juniors and JPMorgan is letting some of its junior staff take a technology masters course while they work. However, both banks might want to think about keeping their salespeople and traders contented too.Goldman and JPM are losing juniors from their securities businesses to the shinier lights of technology careers.JPMorgan, for example, saw the exit of Ulrik Stig Hansen, an associate on its emerging markets desk. Stig Hansen left after three years in September 2018 in order to take a Masters in computer science at London's Imperial College.Goldman Sachs, meanwhile, has recently lost David Fong, an Imperial College electronic engineering graduate who thought he wanted to work in the securities industry, but seems to have had a change of heart.

PAUL JOHNSON TELEGRAM Q&A 6 AUGUST 2018

PAUL JOHNSON TELEGRAM Q&A 6 AUGUST 2018
https://preview.redd.it/uis77n5jtlg11.jpg?width=696&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=55da8eb9e1eb652aecf92162343dc8c5e9b484d2
Good day everyone,
Here is the full Q&A that Paul Johnson did on Telegram on August 6. Apologies for the delay.
First off, on behalf of management, we appreciate everyones patience while we roll out the exchange. While crypto is very complex and has lent to some delays, and things not moving as fast as we or the community wants, we want to let everyone know we are doing everything we can to "spped" things up.
Q : Can I trasfer BTC directly, from Bitforex (yes, that scam, I just dumped a wreck train I held) to Tradeio? Because I have Mew, but Mew cant store Btc
A : We are actually adding to our dev team and adding experienced blockchain people that have worked on exchanges before, which are very far and few between. Additionally, we've added to the marketing team, and are revisiting the way we approach the social outlets like Twitter, to ensure its much more accomodating and interactive.
Q : when LP, when exchange full launch ?
A: As we said LP wouldn't happen less than a month after exchange launch. This was said to manage expectations. Realistically though, based on the volume currently on the exchange which is very little, it only makes sense to open the LP up once there is some substantial revenue coming through so LP participants aren't sharing pennies. We expect once the exchange is up and running fully, revenue to come. You combine that with the OTC revenue (deals are already being lined up), consulting revenue, etc. the overall LP revenue should then be decent. There are other "goodies" that are being finalized now to increase utility of TIO i..e adding to revenue for LP, that will also help out sooner rather than later.
Q: How much volume are we expecting so LP smoothly runs?
A: It's impossible to say, but assuming their figures are "real" you could probably benchmark us against similar exchanges on CMC and look at their volumes. One thing though that's important to mention is that we've already started work on margin trading and if you look at Bitmex, which flies under the radar, the margin component really enhances volumes for obvious reasons.
Q: What's the progress with the Fortune 500 company mentioned?
A: Yes, management is aware that JPM mentioned something like this during the Cyprus expo. For obvious reasons we really can't go into that too much, and in hindsight i think JPM would have kept that "closer to the vest." With that said, however, management are in talks with quite a few different companies, as our exposure is growing and companies appreciate the way we're approaching the exchange from a regulatory standpoint...i.e. not running from it, but rather running to it.
Q: What is real showstopper for slow rate or user additions to exchange. When can we expect to add all the 20k backlog users?
A: Yes, fully aware of that, and that's a major point that management has stressed to the devs, that this backlog needs to be cleared, as TIOnauts have waited long enough. The core components of the exchange have been working very well, with the exception of a few bugs, and we're happy with latency, the matching engine, and deposits/withdrawals.
Q:Any profit (however small), will be saved for the LP? 50% of it that is
A: Yes, consulting profits, profits from any JV's, etc. will be "saved" and accrued for release once LP starts.
Q:Hey Paul, do you have any information about when restricted countyes will have access? For ex any info about croatia?
A: TIOnauts to be clear the following countries (areas) are part of the OFAC list which will not be able to trade with trade.io. Please take note of the Balkan Islands:
Balkans (Serbia, Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Kosovo)
Belarus
Burundi
Central African Republic
Crimea
Cuba
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Iran
Iraq
Lebanon
Libya
North Korea
Somalia
Sudan
Syria
Yemen
Zimbabwe
Q: When will we see improvements in your KYC process? I expected to see online forms, digital signature processes, video verification etc. .
A: As mentioned the other day, this week dev's will be removing the need to verify if you're withdrawing less than 2 BTC equivalent in a 24 hour period. Going forward, there will be no need to print and sign anything, it will all be done electronically. In terms of video verification, honestly speaking, I'm not sure how scalable that is given the sheer number of people that trade crypto. Could you point to any other exchanges with large volumes that conduct video verifications?
Q: I know that the exchange was properly stess tested. In that context do we know what is the max volume TIO exchange can handle at the moment?
A: Last figures I heard were given the infra as is now, high 6 figure orders per second, which is very robust and will tie us over for quite some time, if this is the benchmark right now.
Q: the team is saying everything i want to hear right now as far as im concerned this is an awsome project crypto industry is moving fast and we are all a part of it
A: Thank you, but saying is different than doing....its very important that we execute in a timely manner, otherwise its just "lip service." Management is modifying the way somethings are being done internally to insure that TIOnauts are getting a more timely delivery of all the great things that have been told to them.
Q: Withdrawal of less than 2 btc will be avaliable a limited amount of time or permanent?
A: Permanent.
Q: croatia is sepa country in EU, what is stopping you from supporting kyc from there?
A: We don't create the OFAC list, until Croatia is removed, our hands are tied.
Q: Bitpanda. If something's hard to do, that doesn't mean it's not worth doing - I'm sure you clever people can make it scalable. KYC is usually first point of contact with an exchange - The more fluid and easy the process is the better
A: Noted, and agreed, its not about being "hard" its about being scalable. Will 100% look into adding something like this, but need to check with regulators first to see if this is allowable.
Q: When mobile layout up as predefined template so everyone can use the exchange while waiting an app version ?
A: we're working on a completely sep layout for mobile as you mentioned. Explain what you mean regarding a predefined template for mobile? You mean a layout that's more friendly for mobile based on the exchange as is now?
Q: Gm Paul, tks for AMA. Questions:
1) Are revenues from Angel Investor program also going to LP? I guess it does but haven’t seen stated yet.
2) when we should expect matching engine to be more consistent and pick up on volume because right now it works sometimes and at really low volumes.
A: 1) Yes, Angel Investor is tied into the Consulting program.
2) What do you mean by "matching engine to be more consistent"?
Q: maybe much better if we have mobile apps to download
A: Correct, and that development has started.
Q: 1)Tks.
2) i see that bots are working right now, looking at trading history each trade is really low volume, only 0.00xx units and not everytime,
A: Yes, good observation, we have bots generating tiny trades for the sake of creating charts...otherwise, based on volume by "real" clients, the charts would look pretty bad. We're keeping the volume small, so when we turn over to CMC, we're now skewing volume with bots...much like BitForex got caught doing.
Bots are not 100% flawless unfortunately like actual trading, so unfortunately need to grin and bear this for the near term, until we can turn the bots off, and rely on real people trading which is that way it should work.
Q: What s the planned improvements on marketing and social presence you mentionned earlier ?
A: Once exchange is open to everyone, only then will API be available, as agreed, that's when the bigger traders will come knocking.
Q: Ok thx for explanation, i thought that was matching engine at work as sometimes it does hit on real orders, but mostly are in fact done at px between real orders.
A: No, many of those tiny orders are the bots, again, without them the charts would look like big blobs.
Q: While I sent in KYC I had the moon theme and the file names were almost unreadable.
In the other themes it was fine but the colour of the filenames needs to be adjusted for the moon theme
A: Yes, this was brought up in previous chats, we'll see to it this is fixed. We shouldn't expect you to upload docs if you can't see what needs to be uploaded
Q: It was after session timeout and relogin
A: They've been trying multiple things, glad to hear it may be fixed.
Q: 25k already seem pretty low !
A: Yes, in this space it is, but we want to get traction more importantly and start generating rev for the lp. Will def be increased, as we expect very heavy flow based on initial indications.
Q: 25 is the minimum though? So many will be higher
A: Yes, we're already working out high 6 figure deals already through our dealers relationships.

Check out our most recent Q&A from Biggie Paul discussing the latest at trade.io

We conduct regular Q&A sessions on our official Telegram channel. Join us to ask questions and get the latest news and updates from trade.io.
Telegram: https://t.me/TradeToken
First off, on behalf of management we appreciate everyone's patience while we roll out the exchange. While crypto is very complex and has lent to some delays, and things not moving as fast as we, or the community wants, we want to let everyone know we are doing everything we can to "speed" things up.

Q : Can I transfer BTC directly, from Bitforex (yes, that scam, I just dumped a wreck train I held) to trade.io? Because I have Mew, but Mew cant store BTC.
A : We are actually adding to our dev team and adding experienced blockchain people that have worked on exchanges before, which are very far and few between. Additionally, we've added to the marketing team, and are revisiting the way we approach the social outlets like Twitter, to ensure its much more accommodating and interactive.

Q : When will the LP (liquidity pool) and exchange fully launch?
A: As we said LP wouldn't happen less than a month after exchange launch. This was said to manage expectations. Realistically though, based on the volume currently on the exchange which is very little, it only makes sense to open the LP up once there is some substantial revenue coming through so LP participants aren't sharing pennies. We expect once the exchange is up and running fully, revenue to come. You combine that with the OTC revenue (deals are already being lined up), consulting revenue, etc. the overall LP revenue should then be decent. There are other "goodies" that are being finalized now to increase utility of TIO i..e adding to revenue for LP, that will also help out sooner rather than later.

Sine the Q&A, the liquidity pool release date has be set to 9th October and the exchnage is open for all.

Q: How much volume are we expecting so that the LP runs smoothly?
A: It's impossible to say, but assuming their figures are "real" you could probably benchmark us against similar exchanges on CMC and look at their volumes. One thing though that's important to mention is that we've already started work on margin trading and if you look at Bitmex, which flies under the radar, the margin component really enhances volumes for obvious reasons.

Q: What's the progress with the Fortune 500 company mentioned?
A: Yes, management is aware that JPM mentioned something like this during the Cyprus expo. For obvious reasons we really can't go into that too much, and in hindsight I think JPM would have kept that "closer to the vest." With that said, however, management is in talks with quite a few different companies, as our exposure is growing and companies appreciate the way we're approaching the exchange from a regulatory standpoint...i.e. not running from it, but rather running to it.

Q: Any profit (however small), will be saved for the LP? 50% of it, that is
A: Yes, consulting profits, profits from any JV's, etc. will be "saved" and accrued for release once LP starts.

Q: Hey Paul, do you have any information about when restricted countries will have access? For example, any info about Croatia?
A: TIOnauts to be clear the following countries (areas) are part of the OFAC list which will not be able to trade with trade.io. Please take note of the Balkan Islands:

Balkans (Serbia, Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, including Kosovo)
Burundi
Central African Republic
Crimea
Cuba*
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Iran*
Iraq
Lebanon
Libya
North Korea*
Somalia
Sudan*
Syria*
Yemen
Zimbabwe

Q: When will we see improvements in your KYC process? I expected to see online forms, digital signature processes, video verification etc. .
A: As mentioned the other day, this week devs will be removing the need to verify if you're withdrawing less than 2 BTC equivalent in a 24 hour period. Going forward, there will be no need to print and sign anything, it will all be done electronically. In terms of video verification, honestly speaking, I'm not sure how scalable that is given the sheer number of people that trade crypto. Could you point to any other exchanges with large volumes that conduct video verification?

Q: I know that the exchange was properly stress tested. In that context do we know what is the max volume TIO exchange can handle at the moment?
A: Last figures I heard were given the infra as is now, high 6 figure orders per second, which is very robust and will tie us over for quite some time, if this is the benchmark right now.

Q: The team is saying everything I want to hear right now as far as I'm concerned! This is an awesome project, the crypto industry is moving fast and we are all a part of it.
A: Thank you, but saying is different than doing....its very important that we execute in a timely manner, otherwise it's just "lip service." Management is modifying the way somethings are being done internally to ensure that TIOnauts are getting a more timely delivery of all the great things that have been told to them.

Q: Withdrawal of less than 2 btc will be available for a limited amount of time or permanent?
A: Permanent.

Q: Croatia is separate country in EU, what is stopping you from supporting KYC from there?
A: We don't create the OFAC list, until Croatia is removed, our hands are tied.

Q: Bitpanda. If something's hard to do, that doesn't mean it's not worth doing - I'm sure you clever people can make it scalable. KYC is usually the first point of contact with an exchange - the more fluid and easy the process is, the better.
A: Noted, and agreed, it's not about being "hard" it's about being scalable. Will 100% look into adding something like this, but need to check with regulators first to see if this is allowable.

A: Correct, and that development has started.

Q: 1)Tks.
2) I see that bots are working right now, looking at trading history each trade is really low volume, only 0.00xx units and not every time.
A: Yes, good observation, we have bots generating tiny trades for the sake of creating charts...otherwise, based on volume by "real" clients, the charts would look pretty bad. We're keeping the volume small, so when we turn over to CMC, we're now skewing volume with bots...much like BitForex got caught doing.

Q: What's the planned improvements on marketing and social presence you mentioned earlier ?
A: Once exchange is open to everyone, only then will API be available, as agreed, that's when the bigger traders will come knocking.

Q: Ok thanks for the explanation, I thought that was matching engines at work as sometimes it does hit on real orders, but mostly are in fact done at px between real orders.
A: No, many of those tiny orders are the bots, again, without them the charts would look like big blobs.

Q: While I sent in KYC I had the moon theme and the file names were almost unreadable.

Alright, so what if banks actually thought blockchain tech was all that. What's to stop them from ruining Bitcoin so they could roll out their own?

Considering BTC's value is perceived in fiat terms and traded mostly against fiat, what's stopping a bank, like let's say JPM, from loaning themselves a bunch of USD to themselves out of thin air and sending them to a Bitcoin exchange?
They could buy at any price then dump their BTC until they break the market participants spirits then roll out their own blockchain product without fear of competing with something that can't control development wise.
This is a serious question as it seems completely possible to me. Not to mention a number of banks were exposed recently for doing something similar in Forex markets: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-12-30/rigging-triangle-exposed-jpmorgan-british-petroleum-bank-england-cartel-full-frontal

SPECTACULAR NUMBERS

Watching Wall Street boast its best start to a year in over a decade, investors are turning their focus to the fourth quarter earnings season, with results beginning to trickle in this week. Traders are focusing on the recent U.S. tax overhaul, which could provide breathtaking numbers, but it will not affect stock prices much.
ECONOMIES
German factory orders in Europe's biggest economy slipped by 0.4% in November after three months of gains. The dip was largely due to fluctuations in bulk orders but the overall trend remains positive. China's forex reserves posted an eleventh straight monthly increase in December, $20.7B, taking the full-year increase of the world's largest foreign-currency stockpile to $129B.
The FED should raise interest rates three times this year, given the already strong economy will get a boost from tax cuts.
ARAMCO’s 5% IS FOR SALE
Aligning its strategy with peers, Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX), CEO Ben van Beurden said that growth of competitor Shell's (RDS.A) oil and gas operations in the next decade will depend on shale production. On what else?! Candies? What a discovery! Saudi Aramco and some of the kingdom's biggest companies said they'll pay Saudi staff more money, matching a royal order amid rising prices. Saudi Arabia seeks to sell as much as 5% of Aramco.
CRYPTO
The SEC has received a request to allow five bitcoin-related ETFs to be listed on Arca, a secondary marketplace on the NYSE. The instruments, are not tied to the price of the cryptocurrency itself, but would track bitcoin futures.
AT&T BACKS DOWN
AT&T (T) is backing away from a plan to sell phones made by Chinese handset giant Huawei, on the eve of a big announcement of the deal. The deal that Huawei was set to announce tomorrow would have been its first partnership with a major U.S. carrier, but AT&T has changed its mind. So far it is not clear why AT&T backed down, but there are two issues occur. Are Huawei's phones carry spyware? Is it because the US wants to have domestic competition? At one point we’ll have the answer.
THERE ARE NO JEDIS IN CHINA
$36 million in third-week grosses, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (Sony) finally toppled Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Disney) from the top of the box-office charts. Disney made an impressive $1.2 billion, but it is far from the estimated $2 billion. It seems that China has no Jedis, the movie made only 26% of expectations in the country. The Force is weak in China.
NVIDIA, VOLKSWAGEN, UBER, AI
Making further gains in the autonomous vehicle industry, Nvidia (NVDA) is partnering with Uber and Volkswagen on AI platforms. So far, 320 companies involved in self-driving cars - whether software developers, automakers, or sensor and mapping companies - are using Nvidia Drive, formerly branded as the Drive PX2, proven that there is more than cryptomining to the company!
WHIRLPOOL KICKS OFF CES2018
Apple (AAPL) Watch users will soon have the ability to control Whirlpool (WHR) appliances through the wearable. Whirlpool announced the development at CES and said the compatibility would come later this year to 20 connected appliances. Whirlpool says Amazon (AMZN) Alexa and Google (GOOGC) Assistant voice controls will also arrive in 2018.
SPACEX - THE FIRST LAUNCH OF 2018
SpaceX successfully launched a secret U.S. government payload called Zuma on Sunday and landed its rocket back on Earth. The Falcon 9 powered a spacecraft made by Northrop Grumman, which was sent into low-Earth orbit. SpaceX is now looking towards its next challenge, launching the Falcon Heavy - its largest rocket to date - at the end of January, meanwhile Tesla’s stock price soared higher.
#DAILY PICK
Amazon (AMZN) Alexa Onboard was introduced yesterday. Another green day.
Electronic Arts (EA) is upgraded to Buy, new PT is $130.
Applied Materials (AMAT) also got an upgrade, double bottom formed, ready to rock!
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) had great presentation at JPM Healthcare conference. Climbing steady.
PayPal (PYPL) one day transfer, instant debit card transfer. Smells like blockchain integration. But who cares?! $86 on the way. Tight stop people!
FX WORLD
Not a lot happened on Monday, mostly momentum trading was possible. It doesn’t seem to be busy today either, still look for the correct entry points! The EURUSD initially took off to the upside, then broke down to the 1.20 area. 1.19 offers support, where the pair can find buyers and clear the 1.21 level. The GBPUSD didn’t do a lot, which is a sign that it is trying to break out. 1.365 offers resistance, if we break above, the pair will aim higher. 1.3333 is supportive underneath. The USDJPY did a lot of back and forth move during Monday, but couldn’t clear 113.5. Expect pull backs, which will offer good entry points, the pair eventually will break out on top! 112 is kind of an absolut floor.
TODAY’s MARKET

China's forex reserves posted an eleventh straight monthly increase in December, $20.7B, taking the full-year increase of the world's largest foreign-currency stockpile to $129B.
The FED should raise interest rates three times this year, given the already strong economy will get a boost from tax cuts.
ARAMCO’s 5% IS FOR SALE
Aligning its strategy with peers, Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX), CEO Ben van Beurden said that growth of competitor Shell's (RDS.A) oil and gas operations in the next decade will depend on shale production. On what else?! Candies? What a discovery! Saudi Aramco and some of the kingdom's biggest companies said they'll pay Saudi staff more money, matching a royal order amid rising prices. Saudi Arabia seeks to sell as much as 5% of Aramco.
CRYPTO
The SEC has received a request to allow five bitcoin-related ETFs to be listed on Arca, a secondary marketplace on the NYSE. The instruments, are not tied to the price of the cryptocurrency itself, but would track bitcoin futures.
AT&T BACKS DOWN
AT&T (T) is backing away from a plan to sell phones made by Chinese handset giant Huawei, on the eve of a big announcement of the deal. The deal that Huawei was set to announce tomorrow would have been its first partnership with a major U.S. carrier, but AT&T has changed its mind. So far it is not clear why AT&T backed down, but there are two issues occur. Are Huawei's phones carry spyware? Is it because the US wants to have domestic competition? At one point we’ll have the answer.
THERE ARE NO JEDIS IN CHINA
$36 million in third-week grosses, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (Sony) finally toppled Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Disney) from the top of the box-office charts. Disney made an impressive $1.2 billion, but it is far from the estimated $2 billion. It seems that China has no Jedis, the movie made only 26% of expectations in the country. The Force is weak in China.
NVIDIA, VOLKSWAGEN, UBER, AI
Making further gains in the autonomous vehicle industry, Nvidia (NVDA) is partnering with Uber and Volkswagen on AI platforms. So far, 320 companies involved in self-driving cars - whether software developers, automakers, or sensor and mapping companies - are using Nvidia Drive, formerly branded as the Drive PX2, proven that there is more than cryptomining to the company!
WHIRLPOOL KICKS OFF CES2018
Apple (AAPL) Watch users will soon have the ability to control Whirlpool (WHR) appliances through the wearable. Whirlpool announced the development at CES and said the compatibility would come later this year to 20 connected appliances. Whirlpool says Amazon (AMZN) Alexa and Google (GOOGC) Assistant voice controls will also arrive in 2018.
SPACEX - THE FIRST LAUNCH OF 2018
SpaceX successfully launched a secret U.S. government payload called Zuma on Sunday and landed its rocket back on Earth. The Falcon 9 powered a spacecraft made by Northrop Grumman, which was sent into low-Earth orbit. SpaceX is now looking towards its next challenge, launching the Falcon Heavy - its largest rocket to date - at the end of January, meanwhile Tesla’s stock price soared higher.
#DAILY PICK
Amazon (AMZN) Alexa Onboard was introduced yesterday. Another green day.
Electronic Arts (EA) is upgraded to Buy, new PT is $130.
Applied Materials (AMAT) also got an upgrade, double bottom formed, ready to rock!
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) had great presentation at JPM Healthcare conference. Climbing steady.
PayPal (PYPL) one day transfer, instant debit card transfer. Smells like blockchain integration. But who cares?! $86 on the way. Tight stop people!
FX WORLD
Not a lot happened on Monday, mostly momentum trading was possible. It doesn’t seem to be busy today either, still look for the correct entry points! The EURUSD initially took off to the upside, then broke down to the 1.20 area. 1.19 offers support, where the pair can find buyers and clear the 1.21 level. The GBPUSD didn’t do a lot, which is a sign that it is trying to break out. 1.365 offers resistance, if we break above, the pair will aim higher. 1.3333 is supportive underneath. The USDJPY did a lot of back and forth move during Monday, but couldn’t clear 113.5. Expect pull backs, which will offer good entry points, the pair eventually will break out on top! 112 is kind of an absolut floor.

SPECTACULAR NUMBERS

Watching Wall Street boast its best start to a year in over a decade, investors are turning their focus to the fourth quarter earnings season, with results beginning to trickle in this week. Traders are focusing on the recent U.S. tax overhaul, which could provide breathtaking numbers, but it will not affect stock prices much.

JPM - 9% hit to the stock. Chart within from r/stockmarket

Hi business!
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce a new subreddit (its was abandoned until recently, we are bringing it back to life!)
/stockmarket
The focus in /stockmarket to bring breaking market news and trade ideas for active traders.
Options, futures, equities and FOREX are all welcome!
JP Morgan is obviously opening up the day much lower after their disastrous news yesterday.
This $37 level on the stock is the 50% retracement from the Oct 2011 low to the March highs. Traders like to use levels like this for reference as support/resistance. These particular ones on this chart are called Fibonacci levels.
This 50% Fib around $37 was also a support level from Oct of 2010, which is another reason that this level is important and may attract buyers.
