#Exchange Zebpay moves to Europe leaving behind India Published 5 months ago on December 13, 2018 By Joyce Lang Share Tweet Zebpay, which was known to be the largest cryptocurrency exchange in India has moved to Europe after the Reserve Bank of India banned financial institutions to deal with crypto exchanges in the country. Zebpay had closed down its operations in India in September while it had more than 3 million users already registered on the exchange. After the ban, Zebpay registered its entity under the name of Awlencan Innovations Malta Limited in Malta which is one of the most friendly countries known for crypto and blockchain business. Zebpay now in 21 European Countries: Zebpay announced on Tuesday that it has successfully launched its operations in 21 nations across Europe. The platform lets users trade crypto to crypto on its exchange and wallet. Also after a successful KYC procedure and banking verification, the users can deposit and withdraw EUROS to their Zebpay accounts. Currently, users can trade just Bitcoin with Euro but the company claims that they will soon add other cryptocurrencies to trade with Euro as well. Zebpay Marketing For the start, Zebpay has planned a good marketing scheme of offering zero fee deposits and zero maker fees. Also, the exchange is rewarding 0.25% of every transaction to its users till the 31st of December this year. Users can currently trade BTC to EURO, ETH to BTC, LTC to BTC, XRP to BTC, BCH to BTC, EOS to BTC and TRX to BTC. The new Bitcoin hardfork BSV is currently excluded from the list. Zebpay Entities: Zebpay is currently registered as Awlencan Innovations Malta Limited in Malta for its exchange and also registered in Singapore as Zeb Ventures Pte Ltd for buying and selling of cryptocurrencies on its mobile application or Zebpay App. No Registrations from India: Zebpay has clearly declared that it is not accepting any new registrations from India, the country where Zebpay originated. Cryptocurrency banking is still prohibited in India and there are rumors all around the country that the government is soon going to declare cryptocurrencies totally illegal which means that no one would be allowed to trade or even store any cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.

Published 6 days ago on May 16, 2019 By Joyce Lang After the Cryptopia exchange was hit by a big hack back in mid-January which resulted in a loss of around $16 million in Ethereum and other ERC20 tokens, it has been struggling to reopen and find any kind of relevance. Cryptopia decides to liquidate: The matter of hack was made worse by the fact that the exchange was already becoming completely irrelevant at the time of the hack. Cryptopia has now gone into liquidation and suspended trading operations with the company saying that they have been unable to reduce costs and to be profitable. It was decided that liquidation was the best path forward for all the stakeholders. While the liquidation takes place, all trading and withdrawals have been suspended and the process may take months to resolve. The users still have their funds locked up in the exchange and they are unable to withdraw them because Cryptopia controls the private keys. If ever it becomes possible for the users to withdraw their cryptocurrencies remains to be seen. What kind of obligations will the exchange have to the stakeholders may impact the kind of obligations they have to their users and the funds of the users that are stuck on the exchange.

The IEO Chaos, LEO Token and Affect on BTC Published 2 weeks ago on May 6, 2019 By Layla Harding The upcoming Bitfinex IEO is something that is being discussed all around the cryptocurrency space. It is quite surprising that the Bitfinex IEO is happening just a few days after the New York attorney general announced that they were taking action against iFinex, who owns both Tether and Bitfinex. Tether and Bitfinex: The Same Entity Tether and Bitfinex are largely the same entity. It is worth remembering of course that they lied and said that they were not connected before we had the whistleblower leak called the Panama Papers, which actually revealed their lie and that the audits have never been delivered despite being promised. In an industry in which we are striving so hard for transparency, Tether and Bitfinex have done everything possible to be opaque at every opportunity that they can get. The Issue of $850: It seems that Bitfinex has misplaced $850 million in corporate and customer fund which has resulted in some rather fancy accounting work which essentially saw an equal amount of Tether underlying dollars used by Bitfinex to cover that loss of $850 million with Bitfinex putting up shares in the company as collateral resulting in Tether only being 74% backed. Bitfinex of course casually forgot to mention all of this to investors or the holders of Tether that Bitfinex had $850 million seized. The 2016 Bitfinex Hack: Back in 2016, Bitfinex got hacked for 120,000 bitcoin which at that time was worth about $72 million and the losses were spread to users who experienced a generalized loss of 36%. They enforced a bail-in on exchange users and took 36% of account holders funds and the users were given a Bitfinex token in place of their stolen funds. The BFX token was redeemable for shares in Bitfinex. However, the cryptocurrency market was quite different and small at that time with the total market cap of $12 billion (at the time of hack). So, Bitfinex being hit $72 million or 120,000 bitcoins was pretty big because Bitfinex was the king of cryptocurrency exchanges back then, which now stands at #49. The Bitfinex IEO: Bitfinex is looking to raise $1 billion from big money investors. Each token that they are putting up is going to be worth $1 purchasable with Tether. The token will be called LEO and will be a utility token. According to documents LEO token holders will enjoy reduced crypto to crypto trading fees on Bitfinex and the companies decentralized exchange EOSfinex. Moreover, the token will also reportedly grant decreased lending fee, reduction withdrawal, and deposit fee, discounts and derivatives fees reductions. Bitfinex has announced that $600 million is already taken in terms of allocation by private investors and the rest $400 million will be available for retail investors on May 10th. If Bitfinex and Tether fail, How will it affect the price of Bitcoin? If somehow BItfinex and Tether crumble due to the New York attorney general taking action against the company, bitcoin price might be affected at all with only Bitfinex crumbling especially at the current stage in the cryptocurrency game where Bitfinex stands at the 49th position in the top crypto exchanges list. However, if Tether fails, that could be potentially disastrous of a Mt.Gox level proportion if it happens overnight. Competitors, of course, are scrambling to get bigger and bigger by the day trying to get people over to their services and people are already moving into those alternatives. Every time that happens, the impact of a Tether collapse becomes less and less relevant. However, there is a massive exposure to Tether across the markets with most major cryptocurrency exchanges having massive volumes in Tether pairs and much lower volumes in other stablecoin pairs. What are your thoughts on the upcoming Bitfinex IEO? Let us know in the comments section below.
