Published

on

Coinbase CEO, Brian Armstrong revealed on Twitter today that Coinbase’s exclusive NFT marketplace has had 1 million sign-ups since yesterday and the platform further continues counting. Earlier this week, Coinbase Global Inc. launched its Non-Fungible Token (NFT) marketplace for digital artists and creators.

Coinbase to use ERC-721 & ERC-1155 for improved user experience

This crypto exchange giant’s announcement is speculated to be the beginning of the NFT evolution as Coinbase followed the footsteps of its competitors, Binance and FTX Derivatives exchange. The exchange said the platform will facilitate the buying and selling of digital artworks that are resident on the blockchain in a decentralized manner. Furthermore, Coinbase assured an improved user experience as its NFT marketplace incorporates manifold social features supporting the same, along with ERC-721, and ERC-1155 standards facilitating multi-chain support.

“We’re making NFTs more accessible by building user-friendly interfaces that put the complexity behind the scenes. We’re adding social features that open new avenues for conversation and discovery…The initial launch will support Ethereum based ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standards with multi-chain support planned soon after. We’ll provide the best user experience, but we’ll never lock creators in.”, said Sanchan Saxena, VP of Product, Ecosystem.

Coinbase Creator-Friendly NFT marketplace

Coinbase guaranteed an enhanced marketplace that will focus on user experience by improving accessibility, it also emphasized an artist-friendly marketplace. Coinbase explained that user satisfaction is the key to selling more NFTs, but the key to creating better and improved tokens is through a marketplace that is easily approachable to creators as well. The exchange reinstated that along with improving user experience, it will also prioritize the needs of its artists and creators.

“Creating an NFT should be as simple as tapping a few buttons. Anything more complicated is a barrier to creativity. Coinbase NFT will be a peer-to-peer marketplace that empowers the imagination. With an intuitive design built on top of a decentralized marketplace, Coinbase NFT puts the art and artist’s experience at the forefront,” stated Saxena.

Open DeFi: Risk Management Notification Protocol by Binance, Orbs & Moonstake

Published

on

Finally available for DeFi investors from tomorrow onwards, the renowned Defi.org Accelerator – a Joint Venture project co-created by Orbs, Binance and Moonstake – proudly announces the launch of their chain-agnostic Risk Management Notification Protocol for mobile devices.

This unique Open DeFi Notification Protocol comes to life to allow investors and DeFi users to manage their operations in the decentralized finance universe reducing their loss risks to a minimum especially during market volatility.

Open DeFi: Helping DeFi Traders Reduce Risk

The Open DeFi Notification Protocol permits users to set up any number of alerts for different DeFi apps.

Orbs, the public blockchain platform, announced the launch of the Open DeFi Notification Protocol, a key application product especially created to assist users with unlimited free mobile notifications for impactful on-chain events.

This unique Open Notification Protocol was developed within the DeFi.org organization, co-created by the Orbs blockchain platform, Binance crypto exchange and Moonstake crypto wallet provider.

The Defi.org Accelerator was conceived primarily to develop further creative policies and the necessary tools towards the next level of innovation in decentralized finance, by providing liquidity, support and validation within the ever growing DeFi global ecosystem.

The recently announced Open DeFi Notification Protocol publicly available from tomorrow is basically an event-aggregator of contributions from community members that records significant events.

These events include smart contract creations and upgrades, blockchain governance votes, blockchain accumulated pending rewards, cryptocurrency price swings, prominent liquidations, stop losses, and more.

DeFi users like traders or liquidity providers, by accessing this type of data, can better manage their asset portfolios with superior tools to foresee and react to impactful events. The Open DeFi Notification Protocol allows a secure management by risk reduction, unarguably valuable in volatile market periods.

All DeFi projects can choose to differentiate themselves from competition by providing its customers with unlimited free mobile notifications of key sensitive information. All these Defi platforms need to do is integrate with Github for 30 minutes.

Orbs’ co-Founder Tal Kol describes the product in his own words,

“Transparency is a hallmark of blockchain, yet reliable mobile notifications that can aid the DeFi community are virtually nonexistent…our talented team has created a user-friendly protocol that functions almost like a reactive DeFi assistant, alerting users to the possibility of impending liquidations, significant price swings, contract upgrades and the like. We are positive it will make a huge impact.”

Initially the beta version of the Open DeFi Notification Protocol relies on a centralized node for tracking and display of the significant events recorded.

Orbs is working towards the launch of an updated improved version very soon that will rely on the decentralized Orbs network of independent nodes.

The beauty behind this announcement is that users will be able to set up an unlimited number of notifications linked to a variety of DeFiapplications, all of it integrated on a single open-source interfase comprising several dApps architecture frontends.

No previous registration is required, defi users will simply need to download the mobile app “DeFi Notifications” for iOS or Android and further scan their QR address in MetaMask (or the QR position in their app’s UI).

To make it even easier, in the Orbs’ official YouTube channel there is a tutorial video of this new DeFi Notification Protocol working with Sushi as an example.

Tal Kol added,

“The great thing about the Protocol is that it can work with emerging DeFi projects. All that’s required is the implementation of a simple JavaScript web3 class, to extract the notification from the on-chain data. This is then contributed via PR to the Protocol Github repo.”

Orbs Makes Connections Happen

The public blockchain platform Orbs was specifically designed to grant mass DeFi applications the integration with EVM-based L1 and L2 blockchains such as Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), Polygon, Solana and Avalanche.

The decentralized Orbs protocol, powered by their ORBS native token, is operated by a public network of permissionless validators upon a PoS (proof-of-stake) consensus.

Earn up to 4.75% Yearly When You Stake Your ALGO

Published

on

We’re thrilled to announce that Kraken now supports staking for holders of Algorand’s native token, ALGO!

Head into the Earn section of your account to put your ALGO to work today.

What is Algorand?

Algorand is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain that rewards users for contributing their funds as part of the network’s validation process. With a goal of delivering faster, scalable and more cost-effective smart contracts, it departs from the traditional infrastructure that underpins leading cryptocurrencies.

What you need to know

  • You can earn up to 4.75% in yearly rewards, distributed weekly.
  • Deposits require 10 confirmations (~45 seconds). You can add ALGO to your Kraken account by navigating to Funding, selecting the asset and hitting Deposit.

Will Kraken list more assets?

Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – not even which assets we are considering. All of Kraken’s listed tokens are available on our website, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be listing in the future.

Trade with caution

Limit orders are recommended when trading starts since the markets may be illiquid initially. Be extremely careful with market orders and orders that trigger market orders (e.g. stop loss).

Invest with caution

Listing an asset or token for trade is not a recommendation to buy, sell, or participate in the associated network. Do your own research and invest at your own risk.

Crypto-to-fiat liquidity startup Xanpool raises $27M

Published

on

Cryptocurrency-to-fiat infrastructure provider Xanpool continues expanding operations in the Asia Pacific (APAC) by securing fresh funding.

The Hong Kong-based startup raised $27 million in a Series A funding round led by Valar Ventures, the venture capital firm co-founded by PayPal co-creator Peter Thiel.

Other participating investors included crypto-focused venture capital firm CMT Digital as well as angel investors like TransferWise co-founder Taavet Hinrikus, Xanpool announced Friday.

Running operations in 13 countries across APAC, Xanpool is looking to further consolidate its presence in the region with new funding. Xanpool CEO Jeffery Liu told Cointelegraph that the startup operates in countries like India, Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

“In the coming quarter or two, we are primarily expanding our services into a few more APAC countries. As well as consolidating our hold in existing markets,” Liu noted.

Since its launch in March 2019, the platform has so far amassed over 500,000 users and 400 business partners, according to the announcement. “By the end of 2022, we aim to have grown our user base by 20x to 10 million users across the APAC,” the CEO said.

XanPool is a peer-to-peer crypto-to-fiat platform and a liquidity network relying on the liquidity of its participants. The platform deploys unused money by individuals and businesses to settle cross-currency and cryptocurrency transactions, reducing the counterparty risk and costs and also allowing liquidity providers (LPs) to earn up to 2% on their idle capital.

Xanpool CEO told Cointelegraph that the startup is running software similar to that of decentralized finance platform Uniswap. “Except that instead of crypto-to-crypto, our automated market maker automates between crypto and fiat,” Liu noted.

“Instead of crypto native LPs, our LPs range from traditional import-export businesses to money service operators, to crypto funds. This liquidity is essentially used to settle local currency and cryptocurrency transactions immediately from the individual’s or business’s wallet,” the CEO said. Liu stressed that Xanpool never touches money on individuals’ or businesses’ wallets.

“We simply make software which allows the individual or business to automate their buying and selling, and in return earn a fee,” the executive said.

The latest funding brings XanPool’s total raised to around $32 million, including previous funding by individual investors. The company raised $4.3 million in a pre-A financing round last November in conjunction with its official launch.
