Binance Obtains License to Operate as Virtual Asset Service Provider in Spain
Cryptocurrency exchange Binance has secured registration by the Bank of Spain to offer cryptocurrency trading and custody services via its Moon Tech subsidiary. The license allows Binance to operate complying with the country’s anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorist financing (CTF) rules as required by the Spanish government. As it stands, more than 17 companies have received this licensing from the government. Moon Tech Spain was granted registration by the Bank of Spain on July 7, 2022, after having applied on January 28, 2022. Regulating The Cryptocurrency Ecosystem In Spain One of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, Binance, has received a license to operate as a Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) in Spain. The certification was granted after Spanish authorities found that the exchange through its subsidiary Moon Tech Spain, complies with all the necessary AML/CTF regulation established by the country’s central bank. The Bank of Spain is responsible for overseeing compliance with AML/CTF rules for VASPs that offer exchange services for euros and other currencies for cryptocurrency assets. Bit2Me was the first cryptocurrency platform in the world to be recognised by the Bank of Spain as a provider of services for exchanging virtual currency for fiduciary currency and custody of electronic wallets. It received such recognition in February 2022. Spain joins other European countries that have successfully secured registration to be VASPs, with France and Italy obtaining regulatory approval in May 2022. “Effective regulation is essential for the widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies. We have invested significantly in compliance and introduced AMLD 5 and 6 compliant tools and policies to ensure that our platform remains the safest and most trustworthy in the industry. Moon Tech’s registration in Spain is an acknowledgment of the hard work and commitment of our teams to providing a platform that places user protection above all else,” Founder and CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao commented. Digital asset service providers have seen a massive uptake in demand for cryptocurrency trading and wallet services in Spain in recent times, with the Director of Binance Spain, Quim Giralt, stating that the company intends to hire local talent to facilitate the growth of the cryptocurrency market in the country. He noted: “Following this registration, we will significantly expand our team and operations in Spain to make our services more accessible to everyone. Over the coming years, we will be hiring local talent to serve the Spanish-speaking market and helping to grow the local crypto ecosystem.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Hong Kong Introduces Draft Legislation to Treat Cryptocurrency Exchanges Like Traditional Finance
Hong Kong lawmakers have introduced new legislation tailored to regulate the cryptocurrency space and aim to implement a new licensing regime for crypto service providers. The proposed law governing cryptocurrencies will boost Kong Kong’s leap into the virtual asset market and will also bring their providers into the mainstream of the island’s financial services sector. Amendments Set to Align Cryptocurrency Sector With Traditional Finance Amendments have been introduced to govern the cryptocurrency market in Hong Kong and now await approval from members of the Legislative Council of China’s special administrative region. The Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (Amendment) Bill 2022 was published in the government gazette in June and needs approval in two separate readings to become law. The authors of the draft seek to review the bill to introduce licensing for virtual asset service providers (VASPs) and enrollment for dealers in precious metals and stones. The objective of the bill is to use the force of the law against tax evasion and counter-terrorism-based financing commitments on the businesses operating in the two aforementioned sectors. If, for instance, entities working with cryptocurrencies want to introduce a trading platform, they would have to procure a license from the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and would have to comply with several requirements. Under the new legislation, the SFC will be charged with ensuring that VASPs show their asset listing and trading policies, proper financial reporting, and disclosure, as well as establishing appropriate mechanisms to prevent market manipulation, abusive activities, and conflicts of interest. According to Andrew Leelarthaepin, crypto exchange Bitstamp’s managing director for Asia Pacific, in an article published by the South China Morning Post, the amendments are almost identical to those that would apply to traditional institutions in the financial services industry, and they should meet comparable standards. He sees crypto firms as part of Hong Kong’s financial framework and comments: Put simply, VASPs can expect to be regulated to the same standard as our institutional clients. The law recognizes VASPs as peer organizations within the financial services sector. The proposed set of regulatory and statutory measures marks a significant step in mainstreaming cryptocurrencies within Hong Kong’s financial sector. This matters for two important reasons. For one, regulating cryptocurrencies within the realm of traditional financial services helps to further investor protection. They operate as customer protection-like measures and act to further investor participation and confidence in the ecosystem. Secondly, traditional investors feel very secure when operating in a regulated space with a set rules-based system developed by financial regulators. Consequently, many institutions will wait for further regulatory clarity before entering a new market. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Landmark MiCA regulation package approved by EU regulators
The European Parliament and the Council Presidency have agreed upon landmark crypto regulation, with negotiations resulting in the Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) proposal, which will provide clear rules for crypto issuers, and focuses heavily on the regulation of stablecoins. EU officials structured the MiCA proposal after negotiations took place in Brussels on Thursday, with the aim of increasing the regulatory purview of cryptocurrencies in Europe, particularly stablecoins and crypto asset issuers. The press release outlining the negotiations of the MiCA agreement has set out the structuring of a register of non-compliant CASPs, specifically “those operating in the EU without authorisation or those who bypass the regulation.” The register set out in the proposal would enable authorities to shut down non-compliant CASPs and support efforts to support data protection and fight money laundering. The European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs drafted the MiCA regulation package in April after ​​the first proposal to introduce MiCA in September 2020. The MiCA proposal is the first comprehensive regulation of digital assets in Europe. Ernest Urtasun, Greens/EFA Vice President and Shadow Rapporteur on the Markets in Crypto Assets Regulation, noted: “MiCA will be the first comprehensive regime for crypto-assets in the world and will contain strong measures to guard against market abuse and manipulation. The crypto sphere is rife with risk and open to abuse and attack. We want to ensure that investors will have guarantees of protection for their assets and privacy, and that we avoid cases like the recent crypto-crash with retail investors losing all their money because of badly designed products or scams. Crypto-asset service providers (CASPs) operating in the EU will now be subject to EU rules." Stefan Berger, a member of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), was the lawmaker who led negotiations on behalf of the European Parliament strongly opposed a ban on proof-of-work (PoW)-based assets such as Bitcoin during the negotiations, and was the representative appointed to report on the outcome of the proposed bill: “Today, we put order in the Wild West of crypto assets and set clear rules for a harmonized market that will provide legal certainty for crypto asset issuers, guarantee equal rights for service providers and ensure high standards for consumers and investors,” In line with the newly agreed upon rules, stablecoins will be required to maintain sufficient reserves to support mass withdrawals, and they will also face a cap, limited to 200 million euros in transactions per day. In addition, The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) will be given additional powers to restrict or ban crypto platforms that do not protect their investors. The proposal will also address environmental concerns of cryptocurrency, with crypto issuers being required to declare their environmental and climate footprint.

Secure Peer-To-Peer Communication Based On Blockchain
From hand-written letters transported by horse-drawn carriages to a few taps on a screen, the ways in which people communicate change as technology evolves. Blockchain, the defining technology of the decade, is the next leap forward. The Power Of Blockchain Effectively, blockchains are long lists of transactions that are maintained and added to by groups of people connected over the internet. These groups are typically called networks, and they ensure that the data stored in blockchains is accurate using automatic processes called consensus mechanisms. Consensus mechanisms settle disputes in the case that attackers were to add counterfeit transactions to a blockchain. In this case, network members compare their blockchain records with the counterfeit transactions, and reject them. Consensus mechanisms enable cryptocurrency networks to settle transactions without central authorities like banks and payment processors, making fraud virtually impossible, and enabling people to save on fees. Blockchain’s Role In Communicatio A new secure messaging app, TokLok, is supporting its development with blockchain. TokLok uses two-layer encryption and advanced privacy techniques to ensure that all message contents, including attachments, are completely private. All communications are contained within private rooms that hosts have full control over. Users can only join these rooms if they are invited, ensuring that prying eyes never catch a glimpse of information that isn’t intended for them. TokLok works well for individuals that need to discuss sensitive topics, or simply don’t want others snooping through their private lives. Businesses and institutions, too, benefit from the level of privacy and security that TokLok provides – trade secrets and mission-critical plans are totally safe. Though these features already make TokLok the most secure and private messenger in the world, TokLok’s leading team of industry experts is pushing the envelope even further. TokLok’s next phase of development involves a secure bluetooth mesh network. Enabling users to send messages directly between phones, this mesh network will entirely remove the need for cellular networks, SIM cards, GMS, WiFi, or ISPs. To support the development of their secure mesh, along with future features and security updates, TokLok is going public via an ICO, or Initial Coin Offering. According to Investopedia, ICOs are the cryptocurrency industry’s equivalent of an IPO, or Initial Public Offering, which is the process by which companies traditionally go public. ICOs utilize blockchain technology and smart contracts to safely and efficiently distribute tokens, saving on processing times and costs. During TokLok’s ICO, the company is selling TOL tokens. Holders with any amount of TOL tokens may see their investments grow as more users sign up for TokLok’s service. Holders with 1000 or more TOL tokens gain lifetime free access to the app, and holders with 5000 or more TOL tokens are entitled to a share of TokLok’s total revenue. After making their purchase, investors will receive tokens via the blockchain. TOL is an ERC-20 token, so all distribution will be efficiently and safely handled by the Ethereum network. By holding TOL tokens, investors are playing a key role in creating a future where people can have truly private and secure conversations, free of censorship, surveillance, and hackers.

Ripple Partners With Lithuanian Firm For Cross-Border Payments
San Francisco-based payments company has entered into another partnership deal with Lithuanian FinTech firm FINCI to facilitate cross-border payment services. New Market Opens Up For Ripple The news of the deal was announced via a press release. Under the partnership, Ripple, which has been a leader in enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions will be providing RippleNet’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) services, which leverage XRP to enable cross-border payments in crypto. This will make room for instant and cost-effective retail remittances and B2B payments. As Ripple’s first customer in Lithuania, the partnership also represents the opening up of a new market for the RippleNet ODL. The MD for Ripple’s Europe operations, Sendi Young, has stated, “Cross-border payments have traditionally been slow, complex and unreliable. ODL is the first enterprise-grade solution to address these cross-border payment problems by tapping into global crypto liquidity, giving our customers a completely new way of doing business to help them grow and scale. We’re delighted that FINCI is our latest ODL deployment in Europe and are looking forward to soon announcing additional European partners who are preparing for a crypto-enabled future.” Ripple has continued flourishing outside the United States, despite its ongoing legal battle with the SEC. In fact, the firm is also working on launching a crypto trading marketplace called Liquidity Hub to offer crypto trading services to enterprise clients. FINCI Clients Get The RippleNet Advantage FINCI is an online international money transfer provider based out of Vilnius, Lithuania, that will now be able to allow its customers to make seamless payments between Europe and Mexico while eliminating the need for pre-funded accounts. Cross-border payments pose a real challenge for payments service providers (PSPs), especially those catering to Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs). These businesses are forced to put money towards prefunded accounts and end up trapping a significant chunk of their capital. On-Demand Liquidity services like RippleNet allow these smaller enterprises to release their capital from these pre-funded accounts and redirect the funds towards scaling their business. The deal will also empower remittance-senders to leverage a quicker, more reliable, and low cost alternative to legacy payment systems. Addressing the partnership, FINCI CEO Mihails Kuznecovs said, “We’re excited to be working with Ripple to make it easier for FINCI customers to move money around the world. We share the same fundamental goal of removing the hidden inefficiencies affecting international payments. What’s more, the savings and operational improvements we’ll achieve by using Ripple’s ODL will allow us to put money back into the business and enhance our offering to our customers.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Sports Betting and Gaming Giant, Entain, deploys Syntropy to improve network performance for mission-critical applications.
Entain plc (LSE: ENT) is one of the world's biggest sports betting and gaming companies. Entain owns some of the most recognizable brands in gaming: Ladbrokes, bwin, PartyPoker, Sportingbet, and BetMGM. Entain has a network of more than 40 geographically distributed private data centers. Each data center is unique in terms of the applications it hosts and the regulatory requirements applicable to its market. A typical data center can host hundreds of apps and process hundreds of thousands of transactions each day. Entain's clients demand 24/7 access to the platform, which is completely spread across numerous data centers. Entain undertook a technical Proof of Concept (PoC) deploying Syntropy's technology before becoming an official Syntropy customer. Entain has integrated Syntropy technology into its cutting-edge enterprise technology stack to improve overall network performance. Syntropy is a transformative Web3 connectivity company, leveraging blockchain technology to create an open, user-centric connectivity system that meets the voracious network demands of Web3 applications, metaverse, and gaming. The company's technology resolves the current constraints of the public internet, including security, privacy, performance, and reliability, that impact both companies and end users. The Syntropy Relay Network is an overlay network that runs over the public internet. This global digital fabric links together the best-connected ISPs, clouds, data centers, and endpoints to build a network of networks that provides the highest possible performance and security. Entain implemented Syntropy Agents and evaluated the effect of routing traffic over the Syntropy Relay Network, measuring latency and packet loss. “Entain’s use of Syntropy represents the beginning of a major paradigm shift as enterprises embrace Syntropy’s blockchain-enabled decentralized network routing protocol as they transition to the emerging Web3 model that brings increased requirements for network performance,” comments Dom Povilauskas, CEO at Syntropy. Throughout the evaluation, the Syntropy Relay Network consistently lowered latency by twofold. Along with the latency and packet loss reductions mentioned above, Syntropy’s distributed autonomous routing protocol (DARP) was able to identify and route around an incident of network performance deterioration significant enough to create an extended outage. Entain, pleased with the Proof of Concept's accomplishment, opted to become a customer of Syntropy, validating the need for a performance-based routing protocol for enterprises looking to innovate in the Web3 landscape.

Entering 2022, Splinterlands Looks Forward To Community-led Governance & Biggest Update Yet
Splinterlands, now officially the #1 blockchain card game, enjoyed exponential growth in 2021, amassing millions of new users who've been enticed by the opportunity to trade, battle monsters, earn money and have tons of fun in the process. The game's innovative use of cryptocurrencies and NFT-based items meant it was able to claim pole position in DappRadar's list of most popular blockchain-based games in September with more than 400,000 daily active users - proof that not only can it grow, but successfully retain its existing user base too. Exponential growth in 2021 The proof is in the pudding and the numbers make for an astonishing read. Splinterlands boasts an incredibly strong player retention rate, with approximately one in four new signups going on to become long-term players of the game. That has helped it grow its user base to an impressive 1.5 million unique wallets. On the gameplay front, it counts more than one billion battles in the past six months, averaging a cool 60 million battles per day. Splinterlands' economy is generating big money too, with an average of $80,000 worth of cards being traded on its platform each day, and its biggest-ever single purchase in October involving the sale of a land region for more than $700,000. Last month, it also saw its single-biggest card sale at just shy of $50,000. Now, as we enter 2022, the growing Splinterlands community is set to play an even more important role as the game finally makes its long-awaited switch to a community-based governance model. It promises to be a key development for Splinterlands, which is a play-to-earn card trading game built on the Hive blockchain. Players get to trade NFT cards and battle monsters for rewards in the shape of one of the game's two cryptocurrency tokens - Dark Energy Crystals ($DEC), which can be traded for bitcoin, Ethereum and then exchanged for fiat. The earnings potential is undoubtedly a big attraction for a large proportion of its players, but the introduction of its community-led governance could well be even more enticing for its most dedicated fans. Splintershards to enable decentralized governance Community governance will be enabled through Splinterlands' second crypto token - Splintershards ($SPS). The first coins were launched via an airdrop in July and were highly sought after because they will enable holders who stake $SPS to play a key role in decision making. Once the voting mechanism is established with the launch of validator node software (set to happen in the first quarter), holders will be able to make proposals and vote on how the funds held in the SPS Foundation's treasury will be spent. So they'll be able to vote on issues such as providing liquidity to automated money maker pools as a means of generating revenue for the game, distributing funds back to $SPS holders, new products and services and so on. In other words, Splintershards will evolve to become a truly decentralized game, with the players themselves deciding on its future direction. For the most dedicated players, the ability to participate in the important decisions is a big deal, but that's far from the only thing to look forward to in 2022. Splinterlands is also set to release what it says will be its biggest-ever update, transforming the game with the addition of two new cards that will have a big impact on the outcome of battles. There will also be a brand "empire-building" game mechanic that's required to mint those new cards, ensuring their creation is completely dependent on the players themselves. Other updates on the New Year roadmap include the launch of "Riftwatchers", a new mini-edition of cards that players can only buy with $SPS tokens. The proceeds of the Riftwatchers sales - estimated at $12 million - will beef up an SPS Foundation treasury that already holds more than $4 million in value in the form of multiple cryptocurrencies. We should also see the debut of a new $SPS reward pool for ranked battles in the second half of the year, enabling players to earn $SPS after each victorious battle. That's an important addition, because Splinterlands will complete its final private investor sale of $SPS in April, before the final $SPS airdrop takes place in July. Splinterlands might already be the king of blockchain games, but as its roadmap for the next year shows us, it has every intention of keeping hold of that crown.
