Bakkt Axes 25 DeFi and NFT Tokens from Apex Crypto
Digital asset firm Bakkt has delisted 25 out of the 36 tokens on its recently acquired Apex Crypto platform. The decision was presumably made in compliance with regulatory guidance, and the delisted tokens mainly belong to popular decentralized finance (DeFi) and nonfungible token (NFT) ecosystems. The announcement comes after the digital asset firm's finalized acquisition of Apex Crypto in April, with negotiations that began in November 2022. Another influence to the decision is a perceived shift on Bakkt's overall strategy from crypto retail towards business-to-business (B2B) services. A Bakkt spokesperson claims that the delisting decision was made in the interest of consumer and client protection, based on the firm's regular, internal review of listed coins. Among the tokens delisted are Aave (AAVE), ApeCoin (APE), Avalanche (AVAX), Bancor Network Token (BNT), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Chainlink (LINK), Chiliz (CHZ), Compound Token (COMP), Cosmos (ATOM), Curve DAO (CRV), Enjin Coin (ENJ), Fantom (FTM), Filecoin (FIL), GALA (GALA), The Graph (GRT), Internet Computer (ICP), Loopring (LRC), Maker DAO (MKR), Republic (REN), Stellar (XLM), Sushiswap (SUSHI), Synthetix (SNX), Tezos (XTZ), Uniswap (UNI), and Yearn Finance (YFI). Bakkt's acquisition of Apex Crypto, an unprofitable platform, cost the company $55 million in cash and $145 million in stock. Apex Crypto is a "turnkey" service that provides execution, clearing, custody, cost basis, and tax services to 5 million customers through 30 financial technology partners. Bakkt secured a broker-dealer license from Bumped Financial earlier in February this year, which it disclosed in a financial statement. The license was part of Bakkt's strategy to expand its presence in the fintech market, catering to a growing clientele. However, Bakkt's focus shifted when it decided to shut down its retail-oriented app in March, concentrating instead on business-to-business (B2B) operations. Bakkt now aims to provide crypto and loyalty solutions to businesses through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and API solutions. Intercontinental Exchange, the majority owner of Bakkt, also owns the New York Stock Exchange. Bakkt's stock experienced a 7% decline on May 12, the day of the announcement. However, it is also down by 40% over the last six months, although it is up 3.45% on a year-to-date basis. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

PostFinance Bank To Offer Customers Bitcoin And Ethereum Services
PostFinance Bank, a financial services firm owned by the Swiss Government, has stated that it would offer its customers various regulated crypto services. These services will be delivered thanks to a partnership with Sygnum Bank. Bitcoin And Ethereum Services For Clients According to the announcement by PostFinance Bank, the partnership with digital assets bank Sygnum will allow customers to access, purchase, and store cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). PostFinance Bank is Switzerland’s fifth-largest financial services company, with an estimated 2.5 million users. Speaking about the partnership, Sygnum Bank’s chief B2B officer Josh Fritz stated, “This partnership illustrates how digital assets are now an integral part of the financial landscape in Switzerland. In this sense, the PostFinance and Sygnum partnership represents an important and fully regulated step towards increased asset class adoption. Switzerland as an investment ecosystem offers a number of strategic advantages, including regulatory clarity for cryptocurrencies and off-balance sheet segregation of crypto assets, which eliminates credit risks.” PostFinance’s Chief Investment Officer Philip Merkt, releasing a statement about the partnership, stated, “Digital assets have become an integral part of the financial world, and our customers want access to this market at PostFinance, their trusted principal bank. A reputable and established partner like Sygnum Bank with an excellent service offering is more important than ever.” Sygnum Bank also separately announced the news of the partnership on its Twitter handle. Institutional Grade Staking The partnership between PostFinance and Sygnum also allows the former to provide other revenue-generating services, such as crypto staking. Staking refers to a process in which a user’s assets are locked for a specified duration to secure a blockchain and receive rewards in return. Currently, Sygnum’s staking services include Ethereum, Cardano (ADA), Tezos (XTZ), and Internet Computer (ICP). Fritz added, “Our continually expanding B2B offering, which currently includes 25 leading cryptocurrencies, including DeFi-focused, 60+ trading pairs, and four leading fiat currencies, is available for deployment by PostFinance on a flexible basis. Additional details about the token and staking offering roadmap will be communicated by PostFinance in the lead-up to launch,” Sygnum also launched custody and trading services for USDC and a number of decentralized finance (DeFi) projects and tokens. These include Aragon (ANT), Aave (AAVE), Maker (MKR), Synthetic (SNX), Curve (CRV), 1inch (1INCH), and Uniswap (UNI). Customers Demand Access To Crypto With cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) growing in popularity, customers of various banks have been demanding more exposure to these emerging asset classes. Customers at PostFinance have been no different. According to a spokesperson for PostFinance, the institution’s customers have long been demanding access to the crypto ecosystem. “Our analyses show that our customers want access to the crypto market. The past few months have shown that customers want more security, regulation, and trust. We can offer this. Our top priority is to offer trading and safekeeping within a secure framework for our customers and to ensure the highest level of regulatory compliance.” Crypto Adoption On The Rise Again The pivot towards crypto once again is not just occurring in Switzerland. In fact, countries across Europe are embracing the asset class, with several major developments taking place. Liechtenstein’s VP Bank announced that it is partnering with Metaco as recently as Tuesday. The partnership will allow it to provide tokenization and digital asset custody services to customers. DekaBank and DZ Bank, two of Germany’s largest banks, have also partnered with Metaco to provide crypto custody services to institutional clients. The Neobank N26 has also expanded its services to provide crypto trading services in countries such as Switzerland, Ireland, Germany, Portugal, and Belgium. Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s price has jumped by over 70% since the beginning of the year. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Created by the husband-and-wife duo Arthur and Kathleen Breitman, Tezos (XTZ) is an open-source, decentralized blockchain network that facilitates easy creation and deployment of smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps). 

Unlike its popular peers, Bitcoin and Ethereum, Tezos has a self-amending and a more advanced protocol that undergoes modifications based on an on-chain governance system. This, theoretically, allows Tezos to evolve and improve with time, freely embracing developments in the blockchain space, without facing the risk of a hard fork. 

While the Tezos whitepaper was released in 2014, and its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) — one of the more successful token offerings — took place in 2017, the Tezos mainnet went live much later, in September 2018. 

Commonly referred to as ‘Tez’, XTZ is the native coin of the Tezos blockchain which is used to - pay fees on the network, interact with the DApps running on it, secure Tezos network (via its staking mechanism) and to provide a basic accounting unit for the overall Tezos ecosystem.

XTZ price

XTZ was trading at a little under $3 in early July 2018, a month after the Tezos testnet launch. XTZ price dropped under $2 by the time its mainnet launched and the cryptocurrency ended 2018 trading around $0.5. 

While the price of Tezos surged briefly in May 2019, it continued to trade around $1 for most of 2019, ending the year at around $1.4.

According to our XTZ live price chart, 2020 proved to be a great year for Tezos price in USD terms as it touched a couple of noteworthy highs of almost $4 and $4.5 in the months of February and August, respectively. This was after the Tezos network had undergone multiple on-chain upgrades in the previous year, as well as in 2020, including Athens, Babylon, Carthage and Delphi upgrades. However, by late 2020, XTZ price had retraced to around $1.5, returning to life only a couple of months later, buoyed by a market-wide crypto boom. 

XTZ coin began its next notable ascent around February 2021, breaching the $8 mark in May 2021. It was in the same month that Tezos was announced as the official blockchain partner of Red Bull Racing Honda F1 team. However, a corrective phase followed, with XTZ plummeting down to $2 by late July 2021. Later that year, with the crypto market witnessing yet another bull run, XTZ coin registered its all-time high of $9.17 on Oct. 4, 2021. The coin’s price has since retreated to under $3.5, a range it failed to break by Q2, 2022.

How XTZ works

Tezos employs a variation of the Nakamoto-style Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm, called Emmy+. It features two main entities:

Bakers: These are network participants responsible for block creation activity on the Tezos network. They must own at least 8,000 XTZ to quality, but the more XTZ coins a baker holds, the higher will be the probability of them getting a chance to bake the next block. Bakers earn 16 XTZ coins for adding each block to the Tezos blockchain.

Endorsers: These network participants are responsible for verifying the blocks created by the Tezos bakers, and normally earn an endorsement award of 2 XTZ per verification.

If an XTZ owner doesn’t have the required 8,000 XTZ coins to qualify for block creation activity, or simply isn’t interested in setting up the expensive computing infrastructure required, they can choose to delegate their Tezos coins to a baker. This ability to delegate is also why the Tezos consensus system, Emmy+, is also referred to as a type of Liquid Proof-of-Stake (LPoS) system.

Notably, bakers also get the right to vote on governance proposals floated for suggested changes to the Tezos blockchain. Any baker that behaves dishonestly stands to lose their deposit as a penalty. This ensures honesty among network participants and enhances its security.

In Q2 2022, Tezos had a throughput of around 200 transactions per second and positioned itself as an energy-efficient blockchain. It has witnessed rapid adoption over the years, with some of the leading brands like Red Bull Racing Honda, Ubisoft, McLaren Racing, Societe Generale and others becoming a part of its ecosystem.

XTZ news, updates and highlights

Just months after its successful ICO, Tezos was embroiled in a lawsuit by some of its investors, who alleged that the offering was an unregistered securities sale. The lawsuit was eventually settled for $25 million in 2020.

In a major Tezos news development, video game publishing giant Ubisoft selected the Tezos blockchain to launch in-game NFTs via the Ubisoft Quartz platform. The move was announced in December 2021 and was followed by a surge in XYZ price, but the gaming community criticized the use of NFTs due to various concerns, including but not limited to their perceived environmental impact.

In more recent XTZ news, it was announced in February 2022 that Tezos' year-on-year transactions and smart contract activities had surged significantly owing to the rising demand for NFTs. As per Coin Metrics’ “State of the Network” report, smart contract transactions on the network had increased to a noteworthy 50,000 per day, compared to less than 10,000 per day a year earlier, in January 2021.
