Zug (Switzerland) – As the global crypto markets move cautiously into 2019 – the demand for a trading platform that offers stability, security and market access have never been stronger.

Combining both traditional investment products as well as crypto assets into one trading platform, Swiss-based firm Lykke is proud to announce the launch of the LyCI Service Token (ticker:LyCI).

Introducing LyCI – Trading Power in a Single Click!

In short, LyCI is a Service Token that allows customers the ability to purchase and trade the top 25 global cryptocurrencies in a single click.

Crucially LyCI is also index linked which means a real-time and rebalanced market-cap-weighted basket of the top 25 crypto assets.  Introduced at the end of 2018 the LyCI Index offers today’s investor peace of mind and flexibility in a single platform.

Mitigating Investor Risk Through the Power of Blockchain.

Pronounced ‘Lucy’ the LyCI Service Token allows both newcomer and professional trader alike the opportunity to participate in the crypto revolution – a diversified risk portfolio is assured as a result of the latest in blockchain technologies.

The sole aim of LyCI is to allow ease of access to the crypto markets and to help mitigate risk in an increasingly turbulent global economy. Formerly of Oanda, Richard Olsen, CEO of Lykke states:

“With the collapse of cryptos in 2018, investors are sitting on losses. They own BTC, ETH, EOS or AltCoins and have to decide if they should just stick with their holdings or switch to another crypto with a better outlook. Buying another crypto is risky, because their timing may be wrong. Instead, it is more efficient to switch to the Lykke Crypto Index (LyCI), a crypto ERC20 token in its own right.

LyCI is rebalanced every minute and profits from the narrow spreads of the zero fee Lykke Exchange. Crypto investors no longer have to index that tracks the winners.

The LyCI service token is the first token of its kind and makes it easy for investors to pick these winners, diversify risk and simplify the management of a broad universe of cryptos”

Available over the Lykke Exchange, LyCI is part of a growing and truly global online marketplace that puts the customer in control of their trading strategy with the option to exchange both crypto and traditional fiat currencies securely and with 0% trading fees.

The first in a series of planned Lykke financial products, LyCI offer security, flexibility and ease of use – combining both traditional assets and crypto in a single platform allows access to a truly global marketplace.

Join the Global Markets Today!

Sitting at the Thanksgiving table, your cousin remarks that her credit card was stolen in their data breach and was used to shopping during Black Friday last year. You quickly say, “That wouldn’t have happened if you used Bitcoin,” which leads to an awkward silence. “Isn’t that what people use to buy illegal drugs?” your cousin finally asks, while your other relatives nod their heads. At this Thanksgiving Day, it’s time to share the true meaning of cryptocurrency.

The first thing to do is to compare the cryptocurrency to cash. Remind your cousin that when she pays with cash, she doesn’t have to give away any of her personal details unless the purchase requires it, and more importantly, the merchant has no access to get more of her money than what she gave him. Similarly, cryptocurrency works the same way in the digital realm. Therefore, cryptocurrency payment is also less open to fraud and theft comparing to credit card.

How to make profits with cryptocurrency

What’s more, you can also make profits in crypto trading. In spot trades, investors buy cryptocurrencies like bitcoins and make a profit when BTC rise in price. But there are more opportunities to profit in another way: futures trading.

Compared to spot trades, futures trading enables investors to make a profit on both the upward and…

Bitcoin investors have in recent months faced increased pressure from various governments around the world regarding unpaid taxes accrued from their holdings.

Tax agencies across the globe continue the regulatory push that has put crypto under the radar, especially in the aftermath of the massive gains enjoyed during the bitcoin price boom of 2017. And although Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have since experienced a major tanking esp. over the last 20 months, the focus has shifted gears. Now tax authorities are keen on having cryptocurrency holders file their tax returns properly, and in some cases, are pushing for penalties on potential crypto tax cheats.

Here is how various governments are reacting to the issue of unpaid bitcoin taxes.

U.S.A

The U.S’ Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently began sending out crypto tax-related letters to some 10,000 individuals. The IRS letters are to the effect that crypto investors may owe the taxman money for cryptocurrency trades they may have carried out in the last couple of years. 

In 2014, the IRS issued guidance that classed Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as property, meaning that trading crypto among other activities is a taxable event. Thus, taxpayers who made profits on their crypto face penalties and tax on cryptocurrencies,…
