Toronto’s Bitbuy first crypto marketplace to receive full OSC approval

Financial Post | Stephanie Hughes | Dec 1, 2021

Bitbuy - Toronto’s Bitbuy first crypto marketplace to receive full OSC approvalBitbuy’s next step: bring more coins onto the regulated platform

Toronto-based crypto company Bitbuy Technologies Inc. is set to announce Wednesday that it has received registration approval from the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC), making it the first registered marketplace that is also a brokerage of crypto assets.

Bitbuy was formed in 2013 as a trading platform before pivoting to become a marketplace in November 2019, merging the broker dealer business with a market infrastructure. Michael Arbus, Bitbuy’s chief executive officer, told the Financial Post that the marketplace element sets them apart from other Canadian crypto trading platforms that function solely as a brokerage or have crypto as a feature on a larger business model.

Arbus described that marketplace has buyers and sellers meeting and agreeing upon a trade. Once their prices match, the trade goes through. However, a broker would go through a third party when making the transaction.

“(Consumers) never know about pricing or transparency. They have no control over the price that the other side is giving them,” Arbus said. “In our opinion, people deserve more. So, when we made a decision to go marketplace, it came with a few other big tasks as well.”

These include building out a larger tech company with compliance and technology staffing and infrastructure, as well as filing extra paperwork.
Arbus said that he and Bitbuy’s president, Dean Skurka, held numerous consultations with regulators before March 29, when a joint announcement from the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) set out guidelines for crypto-asset trading platforms.

Since then, he said, they have grown from 25 people to 85. “It’s an extremely busy time for our platform,” he added.

$100M Crowdfunding Deal: Republic acquires the UK’s Seedrs for European expansion

Yahoo | | Dec 1, 2021

republic acquires seedrs - $100M Crowdfunding Deal:  Republic acquires the UK’s Seedrs for European expansionUK equity crowdfunding business Seedrs - who’s merger with rival Crowdcube was earlier blocked by competition regulators - has been acquired by start-up investing platform Republic in a $100m deal.The move comes after Seedrs criticised the the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority earlier this year as stifling the UK’s potential to boost startups.

Seedrs was the first ever regulated equity crowdfunding business in the world and has pushed £1.5bn of investment through the platform during its history, even acting as retail investment platform for digital bank Revolut, now a unicorn. The platform was also the first to introduce a secondary marketplace.

Republic is a leading US fintech company that allows people to invest in private market equity, debt or crypto offerings and has almost one ($1) billion dollars under management through its private asset management practice.

Republic Announces $36M Series A to Democratize Access to Investing for Everyone

UK Competition and Markets Authority Not Inclined to Approve Seedrs-Crowdcube Merger

 

Prior to this deal, Republic and Seedrs had a longstanding partnership where Seedrs advised Republic’s leadership team.

The acquisition of Seedrs follows Republic's recent $150M Series B financing announcement, led by Valor Equity Partners.

Seedrs Cofounder and now chairman Jeff Lynn will continue in his role at Seedrs, and will shepherd Republic’s European expansion, which will now be in a position to take advantage of new EU legislation that has harmonised crowdfunding rules in the bloc.

Speaking to the FT, Lynn said

the new rules “created a true European harmonised regulatory regime, where none existed before,” adding that “the regulatory fragmentation has made it nearly impossible to build platforms of scale — this [reform] gives platforms access to 27 different countries, all under a single regulatory regime.”

US investment firm Davidson Kempner will buy now take the stakes previously owned Seedrs shareholders, mostly for cash. Seedrs also has almost 5,000 smaller investors, including tennis player Andy Murray.

Republic said it will commit additional capital toward expanding Seedrs in Europe “to help deliver new innovations and products for European investors and private businesses.”

Kendrick Nguyen, Republic’s founder, said:

“We knew international expansion was necessary to achieve cross-bordered participation. In working with Seedrs, we have admired their technological capabilities, the strength of their team and their strong presence in the UK and soon Europe. We anticipate further developing the strengths of both companies from retail, secondaries, crypto, and communities to create a clear industry leader.”

Tink Survey Report 2021: Open banking spending, investments and use cases

Tink | Dec 1, 2021

Open banking spending in Europe 2020 - Tink Survey Report 2021:  Open banking spending, investments and use cases

We surveyed 308 financial executives in Europe to get a better understanding of how their open banking budgets are shaping up in 2021, and what use cases they are most likely to invest in.

In this report, we explore how investments are shaping up and what use cases executives have in sight. Here is the ‘too long; didn’t read’ version, if you’re just curious to know some of the top findings on the investments front:

See:  Open banking continues to evolve — what’s next?

  • Across all segments of finance, the mean spending on open banking objectives in 2020 was €32 million.
    • The spending was significantly higher for retail banks and wealth management firms – at a mean of €84 million and €79 million, respectively.
  • The pandemic played havoc with budgets in 2020, and executives spent less than they’d initially budgeted. But this year, investor confidence is back up and open banking is high on the agenda.
  • Although one third (30%) of executives say budgets declined in 2021, the largest chunk (46%) indicate that their budgets have grown year-on-year.
  • As to where the money might be going, financial executives have set their eyes on a broad set of open banking use cases:
    • Payment initiation services comes out on top as the most important use case across all segments.
    • Opportunities to improve the customer experience follow, with use cases related to financial management and onboarding.
    • Risk-related use cases also rank high – especially for retail banks, credit institutions and mortgage providers who consider these ‘extremely important’.
    • Differentiators and add-ons (such as subscription management, loyalty programmes, targeted advertising) rank lower on the list – although they are still important for a majority of respondents.

See:  Financial data unbound: The value of open data for individuals and institutions

We also explore how open banking is tearing down barriers and allowing new players to enter the market – meaning financial institutions should move fast to keep a competitive edge. The full report (which you can download as a PDF) dives a bit deeper in the results, analysing the industry context and our own take on what might explain the results. It also includes additional interviews with three industry thought leaders, and some practical tips for staying ahead in this fast-moving space.

Cryptocurrency executives called to testify in Congress Dec 8

BBC | Dec 1, 2021

Alesia Haas of coinbase - Cryptocurrency executives called to testify in Congress Dec 8Executives of eight major cryptocurrency firms have been called to testify before a US congressional committee on 8 December.

Witnesses called to appear include Coinbase's Alesia Haas, Circle's Jeremy Allaire and Bitfury's Brian Brooks.

It will be the first time companies representing the controversial sector have been questioned in this way.

US politicians across the political spectrum have called for more scrutiny of crypto-currencies.

Elizabeth Warren on the left of the Democratic Party has called for tougher regulation of the sector and Donald Trump has described crypto-currencies as "a scam".

See:  Federal Reserve Board, FDIC and OCC Agencies issue joint statement on crypto-asset policy initiative and next steps

Mr Brooks of Bitfury previously served as a top banking regulator under the Trump administration and had a role in policy-making around crypto-currencies.

Crypto-currencies are not currencies in the traditional sense, although they can sometimes be used to make payments. They are stored online in a "digital wallet" and act more like investment vehicles or securities, often with a high degree of volatility.

The anonymity of paying using crypto-currencies means they have been favoured for criminal activities such as drug dealing and ransomware attacks. However their supporters say the view that they are predominantly for circumventing the law is outdated and that innovation in this area offers huge potential.

Countries around the world have taken radically different approaches to crypto-currencies.

China has declared crypto-currency transactions illegal, a move India looks set to follow. Many other central banks are eyeing the sector warily and discussing regulation.

See:  Moody’s says Crypto regulation a plus for banks, fintechs

However El Salvador recently declared Bitcoin - the most widely established crypto-currency - to be legal tender and its president plans to build a Bitcoin city at the base of a volcano, with the cryptocurrency used to fund the project.

Across the US, as well as many private citizens holding crypto-currencies, states and municipalities have begun toying with plans to integrate them into their operations.

The mayor of Miami and mayor elect of New York have ambitions to make their cities centres for cryptocurrency business.

Crypto-trading hamster Mr. Goxx that outperformed Warren Buffett has died

Fortune | Marco Quiroz-Gutierrez | Nov 25, 2021

Hamster Mr. Goxx - Crypto-trading hamster Mr. Goxx that outperformed Warren Buffett has died
Mr. Goxx, the crypto-trading hamster that at one point was outperforming Warren Buffett and Cathie Woods has died.

The hamster’s owner, a 30-something lecturer and prototyping specialist in Germany, tweeted Wednesday that Mr. Goxx had shown no signs of serious illness apart from some kidney issues in his early days. After eating normal amounts of food Sunday, he suddenly refused to eat and died in his sleep on Monday.

Mr. Goxx, whose real name was Max, gained prominence in September as a social experiment demonstrating the randomness of the crypto markets. Adjoined to his regular cage, the hamster had a fully equipped office from which he ran his trading firm, Goxx Capital.

See:  Mr Goxx, the crypto-trading hamster beating FTSE 100

His “office” included a hamster wheel that Mr. Goxx used to select a cryptocurrency to interact with. It also included two tunnels, one for buying and one for selling the selected crypto. Thousands of people tuned in to watch the hamster buy and sell crypto on Twitch and many kept track of his performance on Twitter. At one point, he even got a shoutout from Elon Musk and was mentioned on The Daily Show.

After the announcement of his death Mr. Goxx and his owner received an outpour of support on social media. For now, his owner has not announced whether they will continue his Twitch stream.

“For us humans behind Goxx Capital, the situation is hard to grasp and questions about a possible continuance of the project are not relevant to us at the moment (for now, we will leave everything as is),” the owners said in a tweet Wednesday.

As of his last trading session on Nov. 20, Mr. Goxx was up 19.72% for the year.

Liquid Avatar Technologies and Bonifii Make Verifiable Credentials Accessible for People and Financial Institutions in the Metaverse

Liquid Avatar Technologies | Cara Buckspan | Nov 30, 2021

Digital Identity and the Metaverse - Liquid Avatar Technologies and Bonifii Make Verifiable Credentials Accessible for People and Financial Institutions in the MetaverseDENVER, CO and TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 30, 2021 / Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE:LQID)(OTCQB:LQAVF)(FRA:4T51), a global blockchain, digital identity and fintech solutions company, and Bonifii, the financial service industry's first transaction network for verifiable credentials, today announce that privacy-preserving financial transactions in the metaverse will soon be possible through the upcoming availability of the Bonifii credential in the Liquid Avatar Wallet. This collaboration means that the Bonifii credential can be used as a "know-your-customer" (KYC) credential for avatars in Aftermath Islands and other compatible metaverses.

See:  Fintech Fridays EP54: How Digital Identity will Transform Human Potential

The Bonifii credential is a decentralized digital identity enabling individuals to authenticate themselves in a way that maximizes privacy and security while providing an end-to-end onboarding experience. By working with Liquid Avatar Technologies and its wholly owned subsidiary, Oasis Digital Studios ("Oasis"), Bonifii will make its verifiable credential available for players in the game Aftermath Islands and facilitate in-game financial transactions in the same, privacy-preserving way real world customers use the Bonifii credential. This collaboration in the metaverse breaks new ground in the emerging digital experiences of Web 3.0.

Indicio, a global leader in decentralized identity software and trusted data ecosystems, will provide the integration. Both Bonifii and Liquid Avatar Technologies have worked closely with Indicio to develop a range of ground-breaking decentralized identity products and services, and both companies run nodes on the Indicio Network, a global blockchain-based network for identity.

"We're extremely happy to have the Bonifii credential available for use in our digital wallet," said David Lucatch, CEO-Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. "I cannot overstate how much this will simplify financial services for consumers and institutions alike.

Everything becomes easier for everyone-onboarding, verification, and fraud prevention. The ability to bring people who are currently underserved or excluded into services that can dramatically improve their lives - and to be able to do that in a robust, trustworthy way in both traditional online settings and the metaverse is an absolute game changer. Everyone and their avatars are going to need verifiable digital identities to live in the metaverse and function in Web 3.0."

"Decentralized, verifiable digital credentials make everyone's life easier-but to us they are a breakthrough financial technology.  This technology is the foundation of Web 3.0, it is essential for privacy and security in the next stage of digital life," said John Ainsworth, CEO and President of Bonifii.

"With the Bonifii credential in the Liquid Avatar digital wallet, we are able to meet people where they are, and create a path for them to engage with and take advantage of services many of us take for granted. We also believe that we need to meet people where they are and will be digitally - and that means being available in the metaverse and providing new financial services for new consumer and commercial experiences."

"The metaverse and Web 3.0 are here, and we are building the infrastructure to manage how we're going to live, work, and play in the intersection of the real and the digital," said Heather Dahl, CEO of Indico.

"Bonifii and Liquid Avatar get it, they're on it-and we're excited to help them realize their vision."

The Liquid Avatar Wallet mobile app is now available to everyone via Google Play and the App Store.

Top 6 Places to do Business in the UK

Guest Post | Nov 29, 2021

Modern London city - Top 6 Places to do Business in the UK

Different cities of the world would offer numerous business opportunities depending on what is in demand in the city. The fact that a business venture is lucrative in a town doesn't mean it will be lucrative in another. However, some cities stand out when it comes to running a business.

The last few years have seen the United Kingdom produce more entrepreneurs than ever, which is good for the economy and the people. Still, there are certain things to consider before starting a business in the UK, and one of them includes the city where you choose to run your business.

One essential thing to consider when starting a business is your location. Therefore, we have made a list of top cities in the UK where your startup business will thrive.

1. London

We cannot talk about the UK without mentioning its charming capital city. Being one of the most visited cities in Britain, London strives in technology, media, and tourism. Recognized as the financial capital of Europe, the city accounts for over 30% of the UK's GDP and is considered one of the world's leading business hubs.

According to a report by statista.com, London has a 57% business survival rate. Although London might be challenging for startups due to the market's competitiveness, you can hope that business will pick up eventually, considering the large population.

2. Leeds

With a five-year survival rate of 42.9% and a weekly income of £429.00, Leeds city makes our list. According to bark.com, the average business launch cost in Leeds is about £15,550, making it top the list of best places to start a business in the UK.

It would interest you to know that Leeds has the second-highest business survival rate in England; the city also has the second-largest business population. Compared to London, Leeds has a rather considerable market in terms of competition. Therefore, the North England city is swiftly becoming a business hub. With adequate business planning, any startup will thrive in Leeds city.

3. Birmingham

The large population of Birmingham City is instrumental to the success of business in the city. Birmingham is home to a large variety of industries which includes digital technology, finance, and insurance. Another notable thing about this city is that it hosts many significant cultural and sporting events yearly, which makes a lot of people drawn to the town. Bullring, one of the most extensive shopping centres in the UK, is located in Birmingham; the city also houses five universities.

Although the business survival rate is low (38.3%), it has a large population which would help keep your business going for a very long time. However, if you would love to start a business in Birmingham but don't know how to go about it, it is best to consult Birmingham immigration Lawyer.

4. Manchester

Manchester is recognized as the home of textile production in The UK. Ever since the city became the world's first industrialized city, it has never stopped manufacturing. Manchester is home to two of the biggest football clubs globally, Manchester United and Manchester City, making many people worldwide visit the city whenever there is significant competition.

With over 395,525 people living in the city, Manchester is the third most populated city in England, with a business survival rate of 37.52. The city is also a hotspot for other industries, including tech and social publishing.

5. Edinburgh

According to the Guardian, in 2016, Edinburgh was rated as the best city for startups in the UK. The city is one of the best locations for growing enterprises. This perhaps is one of the main reasons why people with a Schengen visa are also planning to get the UK visa and move there.

It is an affordable city to move to, as long as you have the requirements. Edinburgh allows you to maintain a budget while also maximizing the opportunities the city provides. The city has one of the cheapest office spaces as well as fast and reliable internet speed. With a 42.9% five-year business survival rate, you can rest assured that your business will thrive in Edinburgh.

6. Bristol

Bristol is home to one of the largest seaports in the UK, which means that it has high international access due to the importation and exportation of materials.

Any business that has to do with the sea will thrive in Bristol as long as it is appropriately planned. The city also strives in tech, as it is recognized for being conversant with emerging technologies. Bristol is not just a city for business alone; it is a green and friendly city where you can consider bringing up a family.

Final Thoughts

The places listed in the post are some of the best cities in the UK where your business will thrive. However, this doesn’t mean there are no other places in the world where your business can thrive. You can also try the Schengen area. But to move there, consult an expert for your Schengen visa application UK.
