SubQuery Announces Integration with Flare Network
Dubai, UAE, 1st December, 2022, ChainwireSubQuery is excited to announce it has extended its data indexing support to Flare Network, the blockchain that aims to connect everything. The partnership was made possible after SubQuery received a grant from the Flare Ecosystem Support Programme. Flare is a blockchain which presents developers with a simple and coherent stack for decentralized interoperability, allowing dApps to serve multiple chains through a single deployment. This cross-chain approach is consistent with SubQuery’s continuous effort to become the universal blockchain indexing tool for web3 developers. Flare supports EVM-based smart contracts, and has data and interoperability infrastructure built natively into the blockchain, providing dApps with highly decentralized price feeds and secure state acquisition from other blockchains. Flare is also building the capability to create decentralized, multilateral and insured bridges between different blockchain networks to achieve trustless interoperability. Hugo Philion, Flare Co-founder & CEO, said, “We admire SubQuery's decentralized data indexing solutions and are excited for them to launch on Flare mainnet. This will complete another important piece of Flare's developer engagement strategy." SubQuery provides decentralised data indexing infrastructure to developers building applications on multiple layer-1 blockchains including the Cosmos ecosystem, Polkadot, Algorand and Avalanche. As an open data indexer that is flexible and fast, it helps developers build APIs in hours and quickly index chains with the assistance of dictionaries (pre-computed indices). Engineered for multi-chain applications, SubQuery allows developers to organize, store, and query on-chain data for their protocols and applications. SubQuery eliminates the need for custom data processing servers, helping developers focus on product development and user experience. “We’re proud to be supporting teams building on Flare Network with our fast, flexible and universal indexing solution. We are excited to deliver another integration that enables Flare developers to index their data faster and easier, and build complex dApps with the help of SubQuery.” — Marta Adamczyk, Technology Evangelist at SubQuery Flare Network developers will benefit from the full SubQuery experience, including the open-source SDK, tools, documentation, developer support, and other benefits developers receive from the SubQuery ecosystem. Additionally, Flare Network is accommodated by SubQuery’s managed service, which provides enterprise-level infrastructure hosting and handles over 400 million requests each day. SubQuery is now focused on launching the Kepler canary network before decentralising and tokenizing the protocol to build the SubQuery Network. If you would like to join SubQuery as a Flare launch partner, please reach out to [email protected] Getting Started The best way is to start with our starter project which contains a running project with an example of all mapping functions.

Cathie Wood Buys The Dip
Cathie Wood’s ARK Invest has taken advantage of the bear market and bought over a million shares of Coinbase this month. ARK Buys Coinbase Shares Prominent investor Cathie Wood is not running scared by the recent market turmoil. With the FTX contagion spreading, many investors and firms are considering pulling out of their crypto positions. As a result, stocks have suffered significantly. For example, Coinbase shares have plummeted to an all-time low after dropping roughly 20% in just the last week. When the exchange went public in April 2021, the price of each share was $430. Last Monday, it closed out the trading session at a mere $41.23. Analysts from Bank of America and Daiwa Securities downgraded Coinbase stock this month, and the company now has its fewest 'buy' recommendations in over a year. However, for ARK Invest CEO Cathie Wood, the dropping stock values have presented a unique investment opportunity. In the month of November, Wood’s company bought over 1.3 million shares in Coinbase. The total value of these shares is around $53 million. As of now, ARK Invest holds 8.4 million shares, which is around 4.7% of Coinbase’s total outstanding shares. The company holds most of its Coinbase shares in its flagship fund, ARK Innovation ETF. Other Shares Wood has not stuck to Coinbase shares only. So far in November, ARK Invest has been purchasing shares of Grayscale’s Bitcoin ETF, Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) and crypto bank Silvergate Capital. Both firms have suffered in the 2022 bear market. Grayscale lost around 76% of its valuation in 2022, while Silvergate has lost 80%. However, this did not deter Wood from making big purchases. Just last week, ARK Invest purchased around 315,000 GBTC shares worth $2.8 million. This latest purchase has upped ARK’s GBTC holdings to nearly 6.357 million, representing 0.4% of the firm’s total investments. Wood’s Prediction - Will BTC Hit $1M? Wood has been a strong proponent of Bitcoin. Earlier this year, before the first blow of 2022, i.e., the collapse of the Terra ecosystem, Wood had predicted that BTC price would reach a million dollars by 2030. However, the crypto’s price back then was $41,000. It has taken a severe beating since then owing to the market inflation, crypto winter, the crash of the Terra ecosystem, and the subsequent FTX debacle. Currently, it is priced at a meager $16,442, significantly lower than its all-time high of $68,789 a year back. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Is Genesis Filing For Bankruptcy?
Genesis has claimed that it is in talks with investors and wants to resolve its fund shortage without filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy Filing Not Imminent Crypto lending platform Genesis might not be one of the dominos that toppled over in the aftermath of the FTX debacle. The company has refuted reports of an imminent bankruptcy filing. It has been in a $1 billion shortfall due to its significant exposure to the defunct crypto exchange FTX. Earlier, there were reports that the firm was having trouble raising money to cover the shortfall and was considering filing for bankruptcy. Although the company never announced a bankruptcy filing, several people familiar with the matter claimed so. However, in a more recent turn of events, a company spokesperson has refuted these claims. According to them, the company is continuing to explore other alternatives through constructive decisions with creditors and has no plans to file for bankruptcy as of now. They stated, “We have no plans to file bankruptcy imminently. Our goal is to resolve the current situation consensually without the need for any bankruptcy filing. Genesis continues to have constructive conversations with creditors.” Genesis Needs $1B Emergency Loan Genesis’s misfortunes started with the downfall of the FTX crypto exchange. The lending platform, which had around $175 million locked away in its FTX trading account, experienced a severe liquidity crisis. According to reports, it had extended a loan to Alameda Research, accepting FTT tokens as collateral, which plummeted to zero after FTX’s collapse. As a result, the Genesis team had to freeze all withdrawals and start considering its options. The company was approaching major investors like Binance and Apollo Global Management for a $1 billion emergency cash loan. However, Binance, which was considered a significant potential backer, turned down the investment. As of now, the company is still attempting to raise funds but might need to go the Chapter 11 route if all other options fail to materialize. Where Does DCG Stand? Industry-wide shockwaves are still destabilizing companies and firms involved in the FTX mess. Grayscale Investment’s Bitcoin ETF, Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), is another such firm that has suffered in the aftermath, with its shares dropping by record percentages. Both Genesis and Grayscale Investments share the same parent company, Digital Currency Group (DCG), which already had to bail Genesis out after it was exposed to the now-defunct Three Arrows Capital (3AC) a few months back. Will DCG have to come to Genesis’s rescue once again? What about its own financial health? The questions are building. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Grayscale Withholds Proof Of Reserves
Crypto hedge fund Grayscale has refused to follow the trend of disclosing proof of reserves, citing security concerns. No Proof Of Reserves From Grayscale The billion-dollar asset management firm has been trying to reassure investors and shareholders that funds are safe without disclosing proof of reserves. On Twitter, the company has been trying to assuage investors’ fear, assuring them that an FTX-level catastrophe would not occur due to the regulations safeguarding its different entities. However, unlike other crypto firms that have been falling over themselves to reveal their crypto holdings, Grayscale cited security concerns and refused to do so. The proof of reserves methodology can deduce the funds held by a crypto exchange or platform through an independent auditor. An exchange hires the services of a third-party crypto auditor to reveal that it has assets on its balance sheet as per the customer holdings in a process called the Merkle Tree technique. Will Not Circumvent “Complex Security Arrangements” Grayscale claims that each of its products is registered and regulated as a separate entity. Furthermore, the team also revealed that all the crypto underlying its investment products is stored with Coinbase’s custody service. Coinbase, which is the only regulated and publicly traded crypto exchange in the United States, performs frequent on-chain validation. The team tweeted, “Due to security concerns, we do not make such on-chain wallet information and confirmation information publicly available through a cryptographic Proof-of-Reserve, or other advanced cryptographic accounting procedure. We know the preceding point in particular will be a disappointment to some, but panic sparked by others is not a good enough reason to circumvent complex security arrangements that have kept our investors’ assets safe for years.” Coinbase As Custodian The company has stated that the periodic validations conducted by Coinbase as custodian are sufficient to alleviate concerns. However, addresses or any other information considered confidential would not be revealed to avoid any impact on the nature of their products. Additionally, a letter officiated by Coinbase CFO Alesia Haas and Coinbase Custody CEO Aaron Schnarch has been disclosed that points out that all of Grayscale’s holdings and assets are secure, with each product having its own on-chain address. Concerns Among Investors However, this revelation has rubbed the community of investors in the wrong way. With leading exchanges and trading platforms, like Binance and, disclosing their proof of reserves in the aftermath of the FTX debacle, there is concern about Grayscale’s refusal to do the same. Certain investors believe that there is no security risk associated with revealing proof of reserves, giving the example of BTC founder Satoshi Nakamoto, whose wallet addresses have always been well known without resulting in any security concerns. Another cause of concern for investors is that Genesis Global was serving as the liquidity provider for the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). With Genesis halting withdrawals due to its exposure to FTX and inching towards bankruptcy filing, investors are speculating if Grayscale will be the latest domino to fall.

How to use CEX trading features on a non-custodial wallet?
How smart contract wallets like Ambire open-up web3 and DeFi without compromising security. With the recent collapse of FTX and BlockFi, as well as other centralized entities like Celsius and 3AC earlier this year, the crypto community seems even more committed to enabling self-custody to everyone and educating the public on its benefits. There are already many public accounts of how the FTX/Alameda scandal and financial predicament came to be, and the ensuing debate has already pointed towards why it happened and how self-custody mitigates such risks. As the DeFi space is doubling-down on efforts to "convert" more and more people to self-custody, we see questions such as: ‘How to use DeFi like a CEX?’ or ‘What are the DeFi alternatives to FTX?’ and ‘How to switch from FTX to a non-custodial wallet?’ raised by the concerned public. In this article we explore how a self-custodial smart wallet can be used instead of centralized exchanges (like Binance, FTX,, Huobi, Kraken, KuCoin etc. ) without sacrificing features. DeFi and Web3 safely, from a smart wallet dashboard Smart contract wallets are at the moment in the spotlight, as many claim them to be both the safest way to crypto security (assets are protected by code and bound to the algorithm of the contract) and the tools to create processes and organizations for a future decentralized society. Smart wallet accounts are in fact smart contracts deployed directly on the blockchain, making them immutable. And the account keys — i.e. the custody of the account— are permanently held by the account user, while the danger of losing seed phrases (common in EOAs like MetaMask or hardware wallets) is abstracted away using sophisticated and hybrid forms of protection such as multisig and social recovery. Our weapon of choice for the day is Ambire, an open-source self-custodial smart contract wallet that focuses on security and UX, while also delivering easy web3 and DeFi engagement. Designed for the EVM space, their recent ‘Own Your Money’ campaign captures the crypto ethos as we’re moving forward from the FTX scandal. Although comparable results can be achieved with other smart contract wallets like Argent or [Gnosis] Safe, Ambire distinguishes itself through its easy on-boarding and overall UX, offering features like email & password sign-up, informative UI or its curated dApp catalog . Registering a self-custodial account with email only One unique feature to Ambire Wallet is that users can securely use email/password to register, so they don't make any UX compromises compared to a CEX; this approach also excludes the need to manage a seed phrase. Pro tip: Use a Trezor or Ledger hardware wallet with Ambire for additional security Another advantage when opening a self-custodial account with smart contract wallets is that users don't need to pass a KYC ("Know your customer") procedure. In Ambire’s case, the sign-up process takes less than 30 seconds, similar to web2 platforms: Buying crypto Users don't need to own crypto to start using smart contract wallets: just like on any centralized exchange, they can top up their account through different methods, such as: Bank wire Credit card Debit card With Ambire Wallet, top-ups are available in EUR, USD, CAD and more currencies, and are supported through 3rd party on- and off-ramp partners. Spot Trading - How to trade with smart contract wallets Users can trade-spot on decentralized exchanges (DEXes) instead of centralized ones (CEXes): funds always remain in their custody, while activity is recorded on-chain and protected against fraud by smart contracts. For a simple market order, users can navigate to the Ambire Wallet Swap tab and choose between thousands of tokens to exchange: How to execute a limit order with smart contract wallets? To execute limit orders on DEXes with smart wallets, users can simply go to the desired platform and connect their wallet through its WalletConnet feature —below the 1inch protocol DEX connected to Ambire Wallet: Pro tip: Users can even engage in P2P trading on 1inch with Ambire Wallet How to trade perpetuals with smart contract wallets? Crypto-savvy users also engage with perpetuals on DeFi, and that’s also possible with smart contract wallets. Similar to the limit order procedure, users need to navigate to the desired trading platform and connect using the WalletConnect feature. With Ambire Wallet, users can use GMX and long or short tokens on the Arbitrum network with up to 30x leverage. Alternatively, they can also try Mycelium or dydx. How to stake ETH with smart contract wallets? CEXes usually offer exposure to staking in DeFi protocols at the cost of staking fees. A preferable alternative for users is to directly connect to staking protocols. With Ambire Wallet, users you can engage in ETH "liquid staking" via Lido Finance Engaging DeFi protocols with Ambire Wallet Ambire offers a curated web3 dApp Catalog, available straight from the user dashboard on the twelve L1 and L2 supported networks. The dApps vary from exchanges to vaults to DEX aggregators, voting and signing solutions or 3D virtual worlds (e.g. Decentraland) and are integrated after security and compatibility validation by the wallet’s team. The dApp Catalog features ParaSwap, CowSwap, Hop Protocol, Sudoswap, AAVE, Balancer, DeFi Saver, Stakewise and many others. How to withdraw crypto to FIAT Some smart contract wallets also have cash-out solutions for crypto. Ambire Wallet allows users to withdraw funds just like any centralized exchange, with the rassuring exception that it cannot freeze user assets. Cashing out is done via 3rd party off-ramp solution Guardarian, with fees starting from 2% (depending on geography and applicable legislation) and limits of up to 15k EUR/monthly. Available currencies include EUR, USD, GBP. Could Smart Contract Wallets be the future? Even though less known than MetaMask or, smart contract wallets are now being recognized as a superior technology from a security standpoint. At the same time, it is clear these types of wallets have already developed tools, features and capabilities able to deliver what users need: apart from guaranteed security, a way to engage, organize processes and social interaction, trade and earn on web3. With so much to be offered to a public in need of security and stability, it remains to be seen if smart contract wallets can become the dominant technology of the decade. Disclaimer As with any type of trading or financial enterprise, users are encouraged to do their own research (DYOR). This article does not constitute financial advice. Using DeFi protocols instead of trading on CEXes comes with inherent risks, although none of them connected to smart contract wallets: Protocol risks Protocol hacks Understanding how protocols work Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.
