As is known, Microstrategy has shifted almost all of its cash reserves into Bitcoin. What if the top 10 NASDAQ companies did the same? A calculation example.
The London-based fintech company Zeux wants to make future payments with the cryptocurrency NEO. The goal is to give customers the opportunity to pay with cryptocurrencies in the business.
As the start-up Zeux recently announced on Medium, users of the Zeux App will in future have the opportunity to pay for goods via Apple or Samsung Pay. The company integrates all services on one platform. The Zeux app provides each user with a digital bank account and digital wallet addresses. This is to enable customers to make payments in all transactions and to purchase a range of investment products from various financial institutions. It also claims that the Company does not charge any fees for opening an account, transferring funds, charges, withdrawals or payment fees. The London FinTech is authorized by the British Financial Market Authority.
With the Apple Card, Apple has set a new milestone in the digital financial market evolution. The titanium-made credit card not only looks good, but also complements Apple’s pay service Apple Pay as a necessary tool to become the largest bank in the world. Google and Facebook are also taking the direction of a financial services provider. Why the three largest banks in the world are coming from Silicon Valley in the future, it looks bleak for current banks and what role Blockchain and crypto currencies play in this financial market evolution.
Although Goldman Sachs and MasterCard are still Apple’s banking services, there are good reasons why Apple and its other major Silicon Valley counterparts, Facebook and Google, are slowly taking over the financial sector. The digital companies are still dependent on banks and their infrastructures and licenses. Banks like Goldman Sachs are the backbone of digital companies to gain momentum in the financial sector.
A Bitcoin Story
Vulnerability in the Lightning Network, upgrade highly recommended
The developers of the Lightning Network recommend an immediate upgrade to version 0.11 or higher. All node operators of the Lightning Network who are using an LND version from before October 1st are asked to immediately upgrade to version 0.11. The reason for this is that a security hole was found in LND version 0.10, which also affects all versions before that.
The corresponding security hole was communicated on October 9th by Lightning developer Conner Fromknecht. In this regard, he explains:
“Although we have no reason to believe that this vulnerability is already being exploited, we urge the community to immediately update to LND version 0.11 or higher.”
