The advent of blockchain and cryptocurrency has seen several industries disrupted like never before, including finance.

Notoriously resistant to change on any real scale, finance has always been seen as a tough industry to bring new ideas into, but blockchain has changed the game in many respects.

Today we’re seeing an influx of agile digital challengers to the established names that have dominated banking for so long.

Recently a report was published by consultancy company A.T. Kearney that claims “Not all banks will survive the tide of change as customers increasingly favor digital banks and innovative products and services.

“Branch closures are a short-term fix to steady the books, but it is not enough – traditional institutions need to consider strategic transformation to improve cost and top line and also offer more innovative products and services.”

In short, the world of banking is changing, and the following three startups are among the best crypto-friendly banking options for 2019.

Wirex

Offering customers a VISA card available in three different currencies, Wirex has quickly established itself as one of the most recognized names in crypto finance.

Billed as “crypto and traditional currency accounts that put the power in your hands,” Wirex allows customers to take charge of their entire banking needs from one simple to use platform.

You can fund your account using a credit/debit card, bank transfer, or cryptocurrency, with ability to track payments.

One of Wirex’ unique selling points is the opportunity to earn ‘cryptoback’ by claiming 0.5 percent back in BTC every time you use your Wirex Visa card.

ATRONOCOM

Offering both a virtual and physical bank card, ATRONOCOM provides customers with almost 40 million contact points all over the world where the card can be used.

With five currencies available, and the ability to both buy and sell crypto, with day trading and margin trading in the pipeline, ATRONOCOM really is providing users with a ‘one stop shop’ when it comes to their financial requirements.

The wildcard of sorts for those who opt for ATRONOCOM is the addition of a high-security communication messenger, that comes with connected wallet function. In the wake of the controversy surrounding the security levels of messaging services such as WhatsApp, this function is a welcome addition.

Revolut

Offering users the opportunity to safely and efficiently buy cryptocurrencies at the touch of a button, Revolut is something of a pioneer when it comes to keeping things simple.

With five of the leading cryptocurrencies on offer, you can convert your fiat currency to Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, or XRP and receive rates and alerts in real time.

Customers can set up a bank account directly from their phone in a fraction of the time it would take to do so in-branch and can transfer money all over the world with the click of a button.

The report mentioned above suggests that we will see some pretty significant changes in how we carry out our banking within the next five years.

If those changes are anything like we’ve experienced to this point, we’re in for an exciting ride.

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…

The cryptocurrency industry continues to grow, and as the adoption pushes forward, there are more and more newcomers who are interested in joining it. However, there is also a problem with their lack of experience, as the majority of existing exchanges tend to target experienced traders.

Professional traders and institutions usually work with greater amounts of money, which is attractive to exchanges, Of course, there is nothing wrong with that, but it does leave a void in the crypto industry — a lack of novice-friendly exchanges for beginners.

This is where Bityard comes in.

What Is Bityard?

Bityard is a cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Singapore. It is a novice-friendly platform that aims to bring the ultimate simplified trading experience to its customers.

It does this by adhering to the product concept of ‘Complex Contracts Simple Trade.’

Bityard, on the other hand, aims to offer its own services to newcomers to the crypto industry — those who lack experience in their first days within the…
