Hong Kong's Open Crypto Regulatory Framework Attracts New Firms
Hong Kong is making significant strides towards becoming a global crypto hub, with the latest developments indicating that the city is positioning itself as an attractive destination for crypto-related businesses. Recent reports indicate that Signum Digital, a joint venture of Coinstreet and Somerley, has received approval-in-principle from the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) for its security token offering (STO) and subscription platform, which will be a pioneering development in Hong Kong. Cryptocurrency data firm Kaiko has also announced its plans to move its Asian headquarters from Singapore to Hong Kong, citing the city’s pro-crypto policies and impressive recovery from covid-related restrictions. Security tokens, a new category of digital assets built on blockchain technology, represent ownership of tangible assets like private equities, real estate, art, and collectibles. By being linked to real-world assets, security tokens lower risks for potential investors, facilitate research processes, and provide a foundation for the market value of the investment opportunity. According to Signum Digital, following the receipt of final authorization from Hong Kong’s SFC, it will manage the STO platform using the brand name “CS-Pro.” The STO platform is expected to create new investment opportunities for everyday investors, and it will be subject to the regulatory frameworks set up by the Hong Kong government. Kaiko, on the other hand, is relocating its Asian headquarters from Singapore to Hong Kong due to the latter’s pro-crypto policies and attractiveness to investors, hedge funds, and asset managers. Kaiko has built a reputation for providing credible market data on digital assets to institutional investors and market participants. Hong Kong’s push to become a global crypto hub has attracted other players in the crypto industry, including Singaporean bank DBS and Seychelles-based crypto exchange, Huobi. The city’s administration is committed to building an enabling environment that facilitates the growth and development of the digital asset industry, and it plans to introduce a mandatory license for all cryptocurrency exchanges and stablecoin providers operating within its territory. The city also introduced the world's first tokenized green bond. Hong Kong's efforts to establish itself as a leading crypto hub are not only reflected in the influx of crypto-related businesses, but also in the regulatory policies and plans being implemented by the local government. In fact, Hong Kong's growing faith in the digital asset market is apparent in its decision to allow individual investors to freely trade major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ether, among others. The Hong Kong government is set to introduce a mandatory license for all cryptocurrency exchanges and stablecoin providers operating within its territory. This move aims to regulate and monitor the activities of digital asset companies, ensuring that they operate within the boundaries of the law and provide a safe environment for investors. Hong Kong is determined to build a regulatory framework that encourages digital asset adoption while protecting its citizens against industry crises. This is evident in the city's response to the FTX bankruptcy saga that occurred in November 2022. As part of its measures to mitigate the impact of the crisis on its citizens, Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) mandated FTX to pay a compensation fee of HKD 1.2 billion ($154 million) to affected customers. Hong Kong's efforts to regulate the digital asset industry are not limited to its domestic market. The city is also exploring ways to collaborate with other countries to establish an international regulatory framework for the crypto industry. In particular, Hong Kong's SFC is a member of the Global Financial Innovation Network (GFIN), a group of regulators from different countries that aims to promote innovation in the financial sector while maintaining regulatory compliance. It's admirable how Hong Kong's determination to build a regulatory framework that fosters digital asset adoption while protecting its citizens is a positive development for the crypto industry. As the city continues to attract more businesses and investors, its pro-crypto policies and regulatory initiatives are expected to provide a secure and stable environment for the growth and development of the digital asset market.

New Era for Crypto Investing With Tokenized Financial Products 
Source: Depositphotos DeFi infrastructure provider AllianceBlock is changing the dynamics for crypto startups seeking funding through a unique partnership with ABO Digital, the digital asset investment arm of Alpha Blue Ocean. The collaboration will enable crypto projects to seek alternative funding by issuing fully-compliant tokenized structured products to their financial backers. Until now, crypto projects have been limited in their financing options, and usually obtain liquidity by issuing tokens to market makers and early investors. AllianceBlock and ABO Digital will provide them with the ability to tokenize traditional financial instruments and wrap them up as traditional Actively Managed Certificates, or AMCs, which can then be offered to capital providers that don’t want to hold digital tokens. ABO Digital’s role in the partnership is to negotiate and structure financial instruments on behalf of crypto projects, based on their capital needs and liquidity requirements. AllianceBlock, meanwhile, will leverage its Nexera Protocol infrastructure and Nexera ID technology to tokenize these instruments as fully compliant AMCs. Investor’s capital will be locked into smart contracts, to be released only once the project’s minimum funding threshold has been achieved. Investors will then receive a traditional AMC that will be managed by AllianceBlock. The main advantage of this initiative is that traditionally risk-averse institutional investors now have a way to offer capital to promising crypto projects in a way that’s fully compliant. AMCs provide a different form of ownership that’s more palatable than owning digital tokens. AllianceBlock Chief Executive Rachid Ajaja said his company is offering institutional investors a compliant and less risky way to get involved in DeFi. “This partnership marks a significant milestone for both companies and the industry as a whole, demonstrating our commitment to innovation, compliance, and risk management,” he said. In addition to AMCs, AllianceBlock and ABO Digital said they will enable large crypto funds, private equity firms and others to issue capital in the shape of tokenized financial instruments such as bonds, options and shares. By tokenizing such instruments, the companies say they’ll be able to appeal to newer classes of investors. Asset tokenization is one of the most promising areas of DeFi, or decentralized finance, as it has the potential to transform how investments are made. As AllianceBlock explains, many real-world assets are traded in an extremely primitive way, with ownership certified on paper contracts. This results in higher costs and long transaction times, and makes it difficult to subdivide the ownership of many kinds of assets. Digital tokenization will enable fractional ownership of almost any kind of asset with lower costs, making them accessible to all types of investor, be it an institution or private individual. ABO Digital CEO Amine Nedjai said today's announcement will tempt more institutional capital providers to look at the evolving DeFi space. “We look forward to working with AllianceBlock and paving the way for a new era in finance, one that is both creative and professional,” he said. Going forward, AllianceBlock said it will work with ABO Digital to explore additional alternative financial investments for institutions using tokenization, as part of its mission to build a seamless gateway between the traditional and decentralized finance worlds.

Worldcoin Launches ZK-Based Identity Solution
The Worldcoin project, a crypto platform created by Sam Altman (co-founder of OpenAI), has announced the launch of World ID, a digital identity solution based on zero-knowledge proofs. The announcement also opens the project's clients to a waitlist for the software development kit (SDK) which will be made available to select developers. This marks the firm's initial venture and further commitment to providing privacy-first digital identity verification on the internet. According to Worldcoin, the solution will also be supporting use-cases for user anonymity, aside from being designed as a privacy-first implementation. Documentation for the project is already publicly available for review. Introducing World ID, a new privacy-first digital identity that brings global proof of personhood to the internet.Find out more and sign up for the SDK ⬇️ — Worldcoin (@worldcoin) March 14, 2023 Altman, who worked on Worldcoin alongside his other high-profile tech projects, is also well-known for his role as the former president of the startup incubator Y Combinator and as the co-founder and current CEO of OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research laboratory. Altman co-founded OpenAI alongside Elon Musk, Ilya Sutskever, Greg Brockman, and Mira Murati. The project describes World ID as a sort of "global digital passport" which users may then store on their mobile device's local memory. On the outset, this means that users are provided with a way of proving their "humanness" and unique identity without the requirement of identifiable (and hence: unsecure) information such as phone numbers and addresses. These are all used for tracking in websites we often use, stored as cookies into a server's database. This implementation is similar to the introduction of ZK identity which Polygon unveiled last week. Given the launch, World ID will be introduced as a new standard for zero-knowledge identity across the web. The firm has also initiated a waitlist for its World ID SDK, which will enable developers to integarate the identity verification system into their applications to screen out bots. "Artificial intelligence is presenting new opportunities across all industries and World ID aims to bring global proof of personhood to the internet," shares Worldcoin. The firm also went on to highlight the statistical conditions for creating such a solution (and perhaps more importantly, why it is necessary at a time such as ours): more than 50% of the global population lacks access to verifiable identification with a legal basis. Worldcoin's World ID initiative seeks to address this, and this writer feels that it's a great fit, especially given the advent of Web3, because it is a solution that moves forward from a decentralized approach.Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Palo Alto, CA, 13th March, 2023, ChainwireKatana Inu has partnered with Boba Network to explore collaboration opportunities between their platforms. The partnership will leverage the strengths of both companies to develop better gaming experiences that combine play-to-earn mechanics, multichain support, and non-fungible tokens. The combined effort between Katana Inu and Boba Network will provide players with fast, efficient transactions and exciting new NFTs. Overview of Katana Inu and Boba Network Katana Inu is a decentralized gaming platform that allows players to earn rewards by participating in various games and activities. It is an exciting PC game that combines cryptocurrency, NFTs, and battle royale elements. The game is in third-person and focuses on a fast-paced sword and spell-fighting combination in a beautiful Japanese-inspired world. Players can customize their character with limited NFT skins, which they can buy, sell or trade on the blockchain. The game offers various earning opportunities for its players, like rewards for completing in-game challenges or defeating other players in combat. Katana Inu's native token, KATA, allows players to purchase NFTs and participate in its in-game economy. On the other hand, Boba Network is a Layer-2 scaling solution for Ethereum that enables lightning-fast transactions and significantly reduces gas fees. The network is built on Optimistic Rollup technology and provides a seamless user experience for developers and users alike. Why Boba Network?

By collaborating with them, Katana Inu can provide players with multichain access, allowing them to select a suitable blockchain that meets their requirements. Katana Inu will also build on the Boba Network chain, enabling faster and cheaper transactions within the game's ecosystem. Partnership Details The partnership between Katana Inu and Boba Network will significantly benefit both platforms and their respective communities. Katana Inu plans to build on the Boba Network's chain and will leverage Boba Network's multichain solution to expand accessibility to its in-game economy and allow players to pick whatever blockchain best suits their needs.

Similarly, the CEO of Boba Network, Alan Chiu, added: "We are excited to partner with Katana Inu and support their vision of creating a play-to-earn gaming platform. Our Layer-2 scaling solution will provide users with a seamless experience, allowing them to focus on playing games and earning rewards without worrying about high fees or slow transactions." Multichain Integration: Impact on the P2E Industry Play-to-earn games utilize blockchain technology, ensuring players have full ownership and control over their digital assets. They can trade these assets, which could be digital land, in-game items, or tokens on an open marketplace. However, all blockchains are compatible, and some may have limitations such as high fees, low scalability, or poor user experience. This is where multichain solutions come in handy. Multichain solutions allow players to access different blockchains seamlessly and enjoy the best features of each one. This solution creates cross-chain interoperability, meaning players can transfer their assets from one blockchain to another without losing value or functionality. Katana Inu players can now benefit from this feature, trading their tokens or NFTs freely without worrying about value loss across the chain. Multichain solutions are vital for play-to-earn gaming because they enhance the gaming experience and expand the gaming economy. By using multichain solutions, players can enjoy more choices, more opportunities, and more freedom in their gaming adventures. They can also benefit from increased liquidity, lower barriers to entry, and higher network effects.

Regulators Shutter Signature Bank Days After SVB Collapse $BTC
According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, New York-based Signature Bank, which had several clients in the cryptocurrency space, was shut down by state regulators. Signature Bank Shut Down New York State financial regulators on Sunday shut down Signature Bank. The move comes as the fallout from the implosion of SVB Financial Group’s Silicon Valley Bank threatens to start a domino effect. According to regulatory authorities, depositors of the New York-based banks would be able to access their funds under a “very similar systemic risk exception” to that of Silicon Valley Bank, according to a joint statement by the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Insurance Deposit Corp. The statement stated, “We are also announcing a similar systemic risk exception for Signature Bank, New York, New York, which was closed today by its state chartering authority. All depositors of this institution will be made whole. As with the resolution of Silicon Valley Bank, no losses will be borne by the taxpayer.” The joint statement also outlined several actions that federal regulators would be undertaking to ensure the protection of depositors in SVB. “Signature Bank is a New York state-chartered commercial bank and is FDIC-insured, with total assets of approximately $110.36 billion and total deposits of approximately $88.59 billion as of December 31, 2022. DFS is in close contact with all regulated entities in light of market events, monitoring market trends and collaborating closely with other state and federal regulators to protect consumers, ensure the health of the entities we regulate, and preserve the stability of the global financial system.” An Unexpected Decision The decision by regulatory authorities to put Signature Bank into receivership came as a surprise to many, most of all to its managers, who, according to sources, found out about the decision just before the public announcement. As a result of the announcement, the bank faced a barrage of deposit outflows on Friday. However, the situation seemed to stabilize over the weekend, according to a person familiar with the matter. Silicon Valley Bank Contagion Spreading? Silicon Valley Bank’s abrupt failure on Friday saw the bank unravel in less than 48 hours after announcing a plan to shore up capital in its support. SVB had taken a significant loss on the sale of its securities against the backdrop of soaring interest rates. As a result, worried depositors began pulling their money from the bank, with $42 billion withdrawn on Thursday alone. As a result, regulators are struggling to find a way to stop the SVB contagion from spreading to other lenders. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stated that she had approved a resolution for SVB that would protect all depositors. As the concern for the health of smaller banks focused on the startup and venture capital communities grows, regulators are considering extraordinary measures to protect depositors and financial institutions. Signature Was Looking To Reduce Crypto Exposure Signature Bank first came under scrutiny during the collapse of the FTX exchange, as it emerged that the exchange held accounts with the bank. Signature Bank stated at the time that these accounts represented less than 0.1% of its overall deposits. The bank also stated that it was planning to shed around $10 billion in deposits from digital assets clients. This would bring down its crypto-related deposits to around 15-20% of its total. Another bank hit by the FTX debacle was Silvergate, which as a result, lost all its depositors and business partners. As a result, the bank announced that it was shutting down its operations just days before the seizure of Silicon Valley Bank. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Rutherford Atayobo Throws Light Upon the Web3 Gaming Platoform SinVerse
Exclusive live discussion with Rutherford Atayobo, the accomplished Chief Operating Officer of SinVerse - a revolutionary blockchain-based metaverse game that boasts a cutting-edge R-Rated Mafia theme. SinVerse has rapidly emerged as one of the most popular and engaging metaverse games in the dynamic Web3 space, delivering an unmatched immersive and interactive gaming experience. During this insightful conversation, Rutherford will share his perspectives and expertise on the development and success of SinVerse, including the challenges and opportunities that arise in building a metaverse game on the blockchain. Gain valuable insights into the future of gaming and blockchain technology from one of the most innovative leaders in the industry. Hello, I am Efe Rutherford Atayobo, co-founder and COO of Sinverse, the first R-Rated Mafia Metaverse built on Web3. As an entrepreneur, innovator, and blockchain ecosystem developer, I have been actively involved in the Web3 ecosystem since 2015 . Since then, I have also founded Manilla Finance, Vanilla Network and Cabbie, three highly innovative and scalable web3 projects. 1. Where do you see the future of Web3 gaming, and how big do you think it is going to be? The future of Web3 gaming is incredibly promising as it combines the benefits of blockchain technology with online gaming to create an entirely new gaming experience. With the ability for players to own and control their in-game assets, a new economy is created within the game, where players can earn real-world value from their virtual items. Additionally, Web3 gaming provides a new revenue model for developers, which incentivizes them to create high-quality games that attract and retain players. The potential for Web3 gaming is enormous, and we expect it to become a major part of the gaming industry as more people become familiar with blockchain technology and its benefits. 2. Would you consider partnerships with other existing Web3 games, and do you have any lined up already? Sinverse has already established partnerships with many Web3 gaming projects, such as SugarBounce and Vulcan Forged. We are excited to collaborate with other innovative and creative projects in the space to create new and exciting experiences for our users. However, we also prioritize partnerships with other A-list institutions within the blockchain space, such as Kucoin and Caasha, to offer our users more opportunities to engage in the Sinverse ecosystem. 3. Is Sinverse a web-based game, and is a mobile version in the works? Sinverse is currently a web-based game that can be played on Windows computers. However, we are actively developing an Android version of the game to make it accessible to a wider audience. The mobile version should be playable in a few months from now. 4. What are the plans for the native token of Sinverse, and how does it integrate into the Sinverse ecosystem? The SIN token is the backbone of the Sinverse ecosystem. It is used to purchase land, build businesses, buy weapons, and recruit teams, among other things. The game features a player-run economy where the SIN token actively moves from one holder's hand to the other. It is essential for players to hold SIN to achieve anything meaningful in Sinverse. 5. When would Sinverse be fully playable? We have developed 8 out of the 17 districts that Sinverse features, and the alpha version is currently being played by users. We are actively developing both the Android and Windows PC versions, and we are focused on delivering a high-quality experience to our users. While we cannot give an exact date for when the game will be fully playable, we are making significant progress, and we are excited about the future of Sinverse.

In the early days of the internet, the world wide web was a wild west of information, with centralised institutions controlling both the flow of data and how online experiences should play out. As internet technology has advanced, so too has our ability to decentralise and democratise the web, often to great advantage. Today, terms like Web3, Metaverse, Decentralisation, Democratisation, and Virtual Worlds are on everyone's lips as we explore the possibilities of a more equitable, immersive, and fairly-distributed digital world. Now, blockchains, dApps, NFTs and Metaverses are at the forefront of this movement, creating new spaces for us to explore, collaborate, and create in ways that were previously impossible. These digital playgrounds are not only part of the solution, but they are where like-minded thinkers unite to map out the next wave of ideas. “Web3”, “Decentralisation”, and “Metaverse” are more than just buzzwords - they're the building blocks of a newly democratised digital world. The Key to Decentralising & Democratising Virtual Worlds In decentralised virtual worlds, governance is often handled by the community itself, rather than a central authority. This is done smoothly through a combination of apps like Telegram, Discord, Signal, and the use of the Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO). This means that players have more say in how the world is run, from the game's rules to the distribution of rewards. By giving players a voice, developers can create more engaging and inclusive experiences, while DAO governance motivates the players to become crucial to the evolution of the metaverses they use, through voting power and reward models. Another key aspect of decentralisation, and one that draws in huge numbers of players, is the ability to earn real-world value from their in-game activity. With the rise of play-to-earn (P2E) mechanics, players can earn cryptocurrency or other digital assets by participating in the in-game economy. This has the potential to create more equitable and sustainable virtual economies, where players are rewarded for their contributions to the community, paving the way for digital meritocracies. It also helps to create players or users who are engaged for the long term, driving them to become champions of the game and stakeholders in its success. Where Else Can We Find Models of Democratisation in the Metaverse? Governance and earning are the primary methods, but making games more inclusive, engaging, and fair, is not as simple as that. Developers must immerse themselves deeper into user psychology to understand what drives digital experiences and makes players feel more like a part of the community than a client of their service. One way of accomplishing this is through avatar and asset ownership. In a decentralised virtual world, digital assets like skins, weapons, and other items can be traded on the blockchain as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) NFTs have the potential to create new revenue streams for developers and players alike, while offering genuine, tangible ownership. This aspect is core to undoing the preconceived notion that we must buy our way to success in the gaming world, spending huge sums for downloadable content and asset packs that have no resale value. It’s not just virtual assets either, in many metaverses, you own your characters and have the option to sell them, trade them, upgrade them, and experiment with different styles and strategies based on their attributes. As you evolve as a person, so can your character. In the metaverse, there will be nothing stopping a dragonslayer from one Metaverse racing F1 in another. The blockchain offers far greater autonomy for players and their avatars and in the future, players will be able to take their assets and avatars with them across different games and platforms, creating a more fluid and interconnected virtual ecosystem, where players can truly shape their own destinies. What Does a Decentralised & Democratised Metaverse Look Like? On the verge of reimagining what it means to be a metaverse is Heroes of NFT’s “Luminoria”. Having already had great success in the NFT space and with PvP play-to-earn games, Heroes of NFT (HON) are set to release a metaverse like no other. Beyond futuristic graphics, a thoroughly developed storyline, functioning tokenomics, and a huge community already playing their games and taking advantage of their DeFi tools, HON has something other metaverses can’t compete with. A real plan for democracy. Community-first and transparency have been core ideals of this project, started by a group of real-life friends who wanted to take their childhood affinity for trading card games onto the blockchain. From their original idea, to a fully-functioning metaverse, this has been a journey that has brought them a great deal of buy-in, respect, and community along the way. It’s brought them closer together as a team too. They shared every milestone, went into depth about their personal journeys, and actively manage their flourishing communities. At the same time, they have handed over power and ownership to the community that allows them to dream, in the form of tokens, governance, and a considerable ambassador programme. Now, with a team of ambassadors, a growing community of enthusiasts, and a huge amount of transparency about everything in development, they are ready for the next step of democracy. Virtual real estate. The upcoming land sale will not just give players the chance to own a little slice of their metaverse, it will give them a key to the kingdom and a seat at the table. Upon purchasing land, the buyer will be able to stake this unique virtual space into a 5-year plan that will return their investment. Unlike real-world estate where it can take decades to pay back a property loan, in HON’s metaverse, you pay upfront and the staking rewards pay you back for 5 years until your investment is returned. In the meantime, you can turn your land NFT (which is really a futuristic apartment) into your own, customising it and making use of your creative expression. For other projects looking to democratise, the use of community-sourced ambassadors, transparent reporting, and an open-to-the-public land sale with staking rewards are a few innovative ideas to do so. Democratised Digital Experiences: Enjoy in Your Own Way Democratised and decentralised metaverses offer players the chance to enjoy gaming in their own way, not having to fit into a box or be limited by the fixed dynamics of a game, as has almost always been the case. Whether it's creating new content, participating in the game economy, or simply exploring a new world, players can engage with virtual worlds on their own terms, and with greater depth. This new era will not be without its challenges. As developers embrace new models of governance and monetisation, they must also be mindful of issues like security, privacy, and inclusivity, as well as ethical and moral dilemmas. The benefits of decentralisation and democratisation are designed to be shared by all and ensure that virtual worlds remain safe and accessible to everyone. One thing is clear: the possibilities are endless. With decentralised technology and virtual worlds, we can create a more equitable, sustainable, and engaging future for gaming. So let's roll up our sleeves, dive into the Metaverse, and see what the future holds. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.
