Neutral Crypto Platform Coinbase Secures $300 Million in Series E Funding Round

Popular cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has raised a fresh $300 million in a Series E financing round, bringing the company valuation to $8 billion.Coinbase plans to use the funding to "accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrencies," as it plans to remain the "entry-point into crypto" for millions of investors, according to a published blog post. The new investment round was led by investment firm Tiger Global with Y Combinator Continuity and Andreessen Horowitz, with others participating. In August 2017, Coinbase was valued at $1.6 billion, after receiving a $100 million from a Series D round led by Institutional Venture Partners investors (IVP). Rumors of the funding had turned up in early October with Mike Novogratz, the CEO at cryptocurrency-focused merchant bank Galaxy Digital, arguing that the rumors added legitimacy to the cryptocurrency market.“Here’s the poster child of the crypto space worth $8 billion — that’s a real company, and Tiger’s not a flake of an investor. These are smart, savvy guys,” he had stated at a finance conference, at the time.“We see hundreds of cryptocurrencies that could be added to our platform today, and we will lay the groundwork to support thousands in the future,” Coinbase Chief Operating Officer Asiff Hirji remarked in the post.It will also build its infrastructure to support regulated, fiat-crypto trading across the world, such as the launch of British pound sterlin...

This expansion will add to its offerings in 46 states of the United States, something that required “quite a bit of work,” according to CEO Zac Prince“There were a few things we need to do, primarily in regards to lending licenses at the state level, which has gone really well. So we’re now live in 46 states in the U.S., so it felt like it was the right time to start shifting our efforts to international expansion,” he continued to say in an interview with Bitcoin Magazine..BlockFi states that the global services are available “in accordance with U.S. international business regulations.” Prince said that the company “definitely had to do a few things on the compliance side” to get to this point, explaining that the services for businesses and retail investors are “open to any country other than countries that are on the U.S. sanctions list,” while for reasons Prince did not elaborate on, retail investors in a handful of other restricted countries will also be barred from the services.Founded in 2017, BlockFi is backed by Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Capital to the tune of $52.5 million, and it has also attracted venture capital from ConsenSys Ventures and PJC.

On October 30, 2018, Storj Labs released a public alpha for their version 3 (V3) platform –– enabling developers and companies to test their decentralized cloud storage solution. The team also shared an updated white paper featuring their latest research on decentralized and distributed systems in cloud storage.Decentralized Cloud Storage RefresherDecentralized cloud storage solutions like Storj enable users to securely store their data on decentralized clouds utilizing peer-to-peer networks instead of storing their information on the servers of large corporations. This model works like an Airbnb for data; users with extra hard drive space can rent out their space as a place for other users to store their information.The decentralized cloud storage model has several benefits over centralized cloud storage:“Trustless” security: Users are the only ones who have access to their private keys, and are, therefore, the only ones who can access their files. Decentralized storage providers or hackers can’t access a user’s private information. Lightning-fast networks: In centralized cloud storage models, download speeds are contingent on a centralized data center. But, because decentralized networks are shared, download speeds are shared too. The more users on the network, the faster the network. Open-market for data storage: By creating an open market for storage, decentralized storage companies can provide lowe...

Neutral Civic Looks to Expand Adoption With App-to-App Developer Tool

If blockchain-based identity platform Civic is to go mainstream, then making it simple for as many businesses and consumers as possible to start using its app will be key.“Consumer adoption may take a while. Hopefully we have a hit that takes off,” Vinny Lingham, CEO and founder at Civic, said on stage at Money 20/20, in a fireside chat with Bruce Silcoff, CEO of blockchain-based ID company Shyft, and moderator James Mirfin, global head of digital identity at Refinitiv.  To that end, the company is aiming to attract more partners with its latest solution, Civic Connect, an integration tool that will allow mobile app developers to integrate the Civic app directly into their own apps as a way to authenticate users. Civic made the announcement on October 21, 2018, during the Las Vegas event.  Civic Connect includes two libraries: One is an Android library, the other, an iOS library. The library tools, both available on Github, allow a partner app to include a “Connect with Civic” icon in their own app with only a few lines of code. Tapping on that icon takes a user from the partner app over to the Civic App, where the user can approve the exchange of login credentials or personal information, and then back to the partner app again. “They are basically transitioning screens,” JP Bedoya, vice president of product and design at Civic, told Bitcoin Magazine.“If you were logging into Wikihow, for example, one o...

Despite a flurry of media attention surrounding the project, Civil, an Ethereum-based platform aiming to save journalism, can’t seem to get enough buyers for its token.The project released a transparency report showing the figures behind its CVL token sale, which ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, October 15, 2018, and the numbers do not look good. “This isn’t how we saw this going,” Civil founder Matthew Iles wrote on October 10. “We don’t know if it will work.” The project needs to raise $8 million to meet its “soft cap” goal, but, so far, it has only raised $1.3 million from 680 people since September 18, 2018, when the sale started.

ConsenSys is the project’s sole investor to date.Civil has a fixed supply of 100 million tokens. The project is holding on to 33 million tokens. Some of that will go to employees and advisors who contributed to the project early on. Another 33 million tokens will go to “mission-aligned p...
