Bakkt’s Futures Platform Slated to Begin Trading in December

bitcoinmagazine | 10-22-2018

Almost a year to the day after the CBOE and CME launched their own bitcoin futures products, the Intercontinental Exchange’s Bakkt platform is heralding the launch of its own futures on December 12, though the platform is still pending approval from the Commodity Futures Trade Commission.Originally slated for November, Bakkt was announced in August 2018 as “a scalable on-ramp for institutional, merchant and consumer participation in digital assets.” The platform is advertised as an all-encompassing, “open platform” for “digital assets across global markets and commerce,” and was, in part, pitched as a solution for day-to-day crypto payments for merchants.It also comes with a promise of daily futures contracts. The Bakkt Daily Bitcoin Futures Contract will allow investors to trade “a physically settled daily futures contract for bitcoin,” according to the announcement. This means that, unlike their CBOE and CME counterparts, which settle in cash, these contracts will settle in actual bitcoin.The announcement continues to state that “[one] daily contract will be listed for trading each Exchange Business Day.” Each bitcoin will be held by Bakkt LLC in what the exchange calls its “Digital Asset Warehouse,” and each contract will be settled by ICE Clear US, a subsidiary of the Intercontinental Exchange.Full details and specifications for the contracts can be found here.

Report: Cryptocurrencies Should Be Governed by Current EU Financial Laws

bitcoinmagazine | 10-22-2018

The Securities and Markets Stakeholder Group (SMSG) has released a new report suggesting that the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) recommend to the European Commission that it regulate the cryptocurrency space with existing legislation rather than instilling new rules and laws.The report specifies that most crypto assets are covered by the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive, which regulates unfair business practices in the European Union and requires corresponding laws to be passed that incorporate it into each member state’s legal system. However, cryptocurrencies are covered only in the sense that an entity issuing a crypto asset is labeled as a business, while the person purchasing it is a consumer. The report asks several questions about different classes (payment tokens, utility tokens and asset tokens) of digital monies to determine whether they can or should fall under present statutes. For example, does the asset in question give the owner an entitlement against the issuer? Is it transferable? Is it scarce, and how is the scarcity controlled? In terms of payment tokens like bitcoin, the report mentions that they are not presently covered by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), which is the EU legislation that regulates firms providing services to clients linked to financial instruments like stock shares and bonds. These tokens are also not covered under t...

Monero Transaction Fees Reduced by 97% After Bulletproofs Upgrade

bitcoinmagazine | 10-22-2018

After the recent hard fork upgrade of its protocol, Monero has seen its transaction fees shrink by approximately 97 percent, dropping from 60 cents to just 2 cents. Crypto analytics firm Coinmetrics shared a tweet confirming the drop in fees and their corresponding reduction in transaction size, falling from 18.5kb pre-fork to 3kb — an 80 percent change.The upgrade, called “Monero 0.13.0 Beryllium Bullet,” implements "bulletproofs.” First introduced by researchers at Stanford, the cryptographic scheme shrinks the size and cost of transactions specifically for Confidential Transactions.  Why Bulletproofs?As stated above, Bulletproofs are a scaling complement to Monero’s Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCT), Monero's main privacy feature, which uses a combination of ring signatures and Confidential Transactions. Ring signatures are cryptographic digital signatures that protect a user's privacy in the input side of a transaction by making it nearly impossible to determine who the actual signer of a transaction is. To achieve this privacy, each Monero transaction includes additional, extraneous coins (decoys) to mask the exact coin being signed, making it extremely difficult to parse the real coins being sent from the decoys. Before the upgrade, six decoys were added to each Monero transaction--now, ten will be featured in each. Bolstering the privacy provided by ring signatures, Confidential Transaction...
