The cryptocurrency market is not predictable as inevitable changes develop continually. But one blockchain project that’s become the talked-about pet of the market and has been consistent in making headlines lately is Ripple. Of course, the credit goes to its team and the head – they tend to stay engaged and build trust as it should be done.

Now, Ripple has come to the lights yet again. Mars Finance, in collaboration with Chinese investors, is set to hold a Blockchain Summit on Oct 18, 2018, in New York. It is important to know that the upcoming Summit will host great Fintech companies, global leaders in the financial sector of the world from Wall Street, China, and the investment industry.

The Summit is set to hold for a day, and the discussion would primarily be on the “Next Step” to attain the tipping-point for the blockchain industry of the world and how to stabilize the world’s financial market. Other discussions could be on stable-coins and how the blockchain industry can be governed effectively.

Moving forward, the Summit might include a discussion with Ripple, Morgan Stanley, NASDAQ, Standard & Poor’s, Barclays, and Digital Galaxy. On a relevant note, the founder of Mars Finance, Fred Wang, is aiming at increasing the reach of Mars Finance to other parts of the world by creating a Mars Finance US Edition that will also be unveiled during the Summit.

On that view, Mars Finance will not only be featured in China alone but also in the United States, as this will further boost the importance of blockchain and link-up blockchain enthusiasts in the crypto-sphere.

Invited personalities from China that are going to be available for the Mars Blockchain Summit include: Dao Yuan, Chairman of Zhongguancun Blockchain Industry Alliance; Shuoji Zhou, a well-renowned personality in China’s blockchain Industry and the CEO of FBG Capital; Chuanwei Zou, Chief Economist at Bitmain; Tianyuan Wei, Partner of Sharp-Eye Capital; and Feng Han, of Elastos.

Other notable personalities that are expected to attend the event also include, the CEO of Ripple (XRP), Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Coinbase, Brain Armstrong, Winklevoss Brothers, Katina Stefanova of Marto Capital, Danny Aranda, an executive at Ripple (XRP), and Eugenio Gomez, a Financial Professional at Harvard Law School.

Subsequently, the upcoming Mars Finance blockchain Summit is expected to be a bigger-scale event, and companies such as DFG, Sharp-Eye Capital, Consensus Lab, EUB Chain, and Crypto Capital will also co-host the event together with Mars Finance. Another attractive side-event that will be added to the Summit’s theme is an all-night cocktail party, which will attract investors to exchange pleasantries.

That aside, the Chinese cryptocurrency frontrunners (as well as others such as the head of Ripple) will get to meet great investors and FinTech institutions from WallStreet. There are no doubts that the upcoming Mars Finance Blockchain Summit will be another important event in the blockchain world.

It could set a new landmark in the blockchain industry. Will blockchain be implemented in the traditional finance system soon since things are catching a good bit of steam now? Well, only time will tell on that, and as the Mars Finance US Edition is set to be released, the event might play an essential role in that cause.

But one thing is for sure, the CEO Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse is on a mission to revolutionize how the world deals with finance currently. And, he is trying not to miss a single opportunity to boost the awareness and mass adoption of the blockchain platform he leads.

The Pros And Cons Of Cryptocurrency

Published

cryptocurrency

Many facets of our lives are now digitized––money is no exception. 

Have you noticed that paper money is on its way to being obsolete because so many people receive direct deposit and love the simplicity of their debit card? 

Not to mention, cash carries germs, as we’ve heard lots about during the pandemic. Many businesses have turned to card only options in light of this. 

But what about cryptocurrency?

You probably heard everyone raving about it a few years ago, but the excitement’s calmed down quite a bit. That doesn’t mean that it’s not a viable option you should keep in mind. 

What’s Cryptocurrency? 

Let’s start with the basic definition of cryptocurrency so we’re all on the same page. Cryptocurrency utilizes cryptographic methods and complex coding systems to encrypt sensitive information during data transfers. This protects your funds and personal information on a whole different level. 

These transactions are virtually impenetrable due to the combination of mathematical and technological protocols created and put in place. This aspect of cryptocurrency is what makes it safer. Also, the details of transactions are kept private. No one can see who sent what, etc., because those rigorous mathematical and technological protocols protect it.

The Pros: 

Different From Traditional Banking Transactions

One thing people hate about traditional banks is the fact that they can…

BTC Surged Again as A Safe Haven Asset During Global Tensions

  • India – China Border Conflict

After weeks of squabbling and brawling along their long-disputed border, hundreds of Indian and Chinese soldiers engaged in a deadly clash Monday in a river valley that’s part of the region of Ladakh last week. Troops had massed on both sides of the border in recent months in the northern India region of Ladakh and the southwestern Chinese region of Aksai Chin, causing global concerns of a potential escalation between the two.

  • North and South Korea Clash

Last Tuesday, North Korea destroyed the liaison office it jointly operates with South Korea in the city of Kaesong, just north of the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries. 

North Korea also said it would send troops to now-shuttered joint cooperation sites on its territory, reinstall guard posts and resume military drills at front-line areas in a violation of separate 2018 deals with South Korea. Jeong said South Korea will take “immediate, swift and corresponding” steps to any North Korean provocation.

The tensions grown in Asia and the potential “second wave” of coronavirus in the United States may add more difficulties to the global economic recovery. Thus, Bitcoin, as a safe haven asset, attracts more investors to buy and hold.
