Bitcoin Association names former SBI Group executive Jerry David Chan as Japan and South Korea Manager to grow Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin Association has named Jerry David Chan one of its new managers in Asia. Most recently, Jerry spearheaded blockchain strategic initiatives at SBI Group, the financial technology conglomerate in Japan, and served as General Manager and Chief of Digital Asset Solutions. Based in Tokyo, his portfolio covers growth of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) throughout Japan and South Korea – two key markets
for the Bitcoin industry. Jerry will also devote time to Singapore and Malaysia. His work will highlight the unique capabilities of the Bitcoin SV blockchain to developers, enterprises, miners, venture investors, and Bitcoin users.

Bitcoin Association is the global industry organization for the business of Bitcoin. It supports BSV as the only coin with a blockchain that significantly scales (now), has robust utility (now), and is committed to a set-in-stone protocol for developers to build on. BSV is also the only project that adheres to the original design of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. In short, BSV is Bitcoin.

Much like Bitcoin’s design leverages insight into many disciplines, Jerry brings comprehensive skillsets to the BSV’s ecosystem. Jerry is a 14-year veteran of Wall Street technology; before his tenure at SBI Group, he worked in New York and Tokyo at the technology departments of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan FICC. Jerry’s experience bridges technology, economics, and how Bitcoin and blockchain innovations can be applied to real world business applications. He is a well-known Bitcoin thought leader, being a frequent and well-respected speaker and writer on Bitcoin and blockchain topics.  Jerry is a graduate of the University of Waterloo in Canada, with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Jerry’s hire is another step in the global expansion of Bitcoin Association. Last week, the organization named Lise Li (former COO of Rawpool, a Bitcoin mining pool based in China) as its new China Manager.

Jimmy Nguyen, Founding President of Bitcoin Association, commented: “BSV is the ideal blockchain for enterprise applications, and Jerry is the ideal leader for BSV’s business growth in Japan and other key Asian countries. He knows what big corporates need, and can help organizations understand technically how to build BSV blockchain applications to solve those needs. Jerry is one of the most impressive and well-reasoned professionals working in Bitcoin, and enthusiastically supports the Satoshi Vision. I am thrilled to welcome him to the Bitcoin Association family.”

Jerry remarked: “As a long time fintech professional and Bitcoin enthusiast, I have always believed in the Satoshi Vision with its potential applications and exciting new developments that could benefit all aspects of society. After years of being disappointed as Bitcoin failed to scale, I’m excited to see BSV finally fulfil Bitcoin’s destiny to become the global enterprise blockchain. Bitcoin is my passion, and I thank Bitcoin Association for this opportunity to dedicate my full time to support BSV – what Bitcoin was always born to be.”

About DRIVE Markets

DRIVE Markets is a crypto and fiat exchange, built on forex technology First Derivatives and MetaTrader, which offers a smooth transition to crypto trading.

DRIVE is also developing DRIVE Pay, a multi-protocol, real-time remittance and gross settlement network for crypto and fiat currencies. DRIVE Pay will be built using the BSV blockchain.

BSV is the only coin with a blockchain that scales (now), has utility (now) and is committed to a set-in-stone protocol for developers to build on (return to original Bitcoin protocol to be completed by February 2020). BSV is also the only coin that adheres to the original Bitcoin white paper. In short, BSV is Bitcoin.

The techy bit. To explain why scaling matters in blockchain technology for enterprise usage, we called in Steve Shadders, nChain’s Chief Technology Officer and Technical Director of the Bitcoin SV Node team: “BSV has the scaling plan necessary to support enterprise blockchain applications, which is why it should be of interest to professional and institutional investors. Earlier this year, BSV’s blockchain witnessed not one, but two, 128MB record-setting blocks – the world’s largest ever on a public blockchain. What does that mean? The coin wrongly referred to as ‘Bitcoin’ [BTC] has a 1MB block cap which restricts the growth and speed of transactions on that blockchain – in fact, strangles it! BSV can already handle 300+ transactions per second comfortably and proves that massive on-chain scaling works the way Bitcoin was always intended, this capacity is being continually expanded and is expected to cross 1000+ transactions per second in the coming months. On July 24, the BSV network undergoes a key protocol upgrade which lifts its default block cap to 2 gigabytes (2000 MBs), opening up far more capacity than any other blockchain project. And we are building towards a future of terabyte (1 million MB) size blocks, to process billions of transactions per second and become the global data ledger for business.”

Bitcoin SV (BSV) “Quasar” protocol upgrade continues massive blockchain scaling, lifting default block cap to 2GB

On 24 July 2019, the Bitcoin SV (BSV) network will undergo a key protocol upgrade focused on scaling. The “Quasar” upgrade lifts the default block size “hard cap” on BSV from its current 128MB to 2GB (2000 MB). Although the default maximum block size will be 2GB, initially, a significant portion of miner hash rate will manually set their hard cap to a lower (but still very robust) level of 512MB – far higher than any other competing Bitcoin project.

The Quasar upgrade represents a key step in BSV’s journey to unlock the massive on-chain scaling power that was always possible with Bitcoin, and enable BSV to become the global enterprise blockchain. BSV can already handle 300+ transactions per second comfortably; this capacity is continually being expanded and is expected to cross 1000+ transactions per second in the coming months after the Quasar network upgrade. This level of capacity can compete with VISA payment network capacity and also supports enterprise applications. 

BSV is the only coin with a blockchain that significantly scales (now), has robust utility (now), and is committed to a set-in-stone protocol for developers to build on (return to original Bitcoin protocol to be completed by February 2020). BSV is also the only coin that adheres to the original Bitcoin white paper. In short, BSV is Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen comments on how the Quasar upgrade helps Bitcoin miners: “Miners need to be aware that massive scaling is critical for their profitability – especially after the next block reward halving in May 2020 which reduces the block reward subsidy from 12.5 to 6.25 coins, and then again in 2024 when the subsidy is reduced to 3.125 coins, and again every several years after. For mining to remain profitable, miners need to earn more in transaction fees from each block to compensate for the lower block reward subsidy. This is only possible on BSV. During a 21 May 2019 test on the BSV Scaling Test Network, a 1.42GB block was mined – which resulted for the first time in transaction fees which were more than the 12.5 coin block reward subsidy. This is how Bitcoin’s economic model is meant to work, and this is what Satoshi always envisioned to ensure miners remain profitable.” 

The BSV network will upgrade to Quasar on 24 July 2019 at approximately 13:00 G.M.T. Mining nodes and blockchain listeners are encouraged to immediately update their BSV software, in advance of the network upgrade. (Miners write to the blockchain. In contrast, “blockchain listeners” are businesses and individuals who run an instance of Bitcoin SV – such as exchanges and wallet operators – but are not involved in mining and thus do not write to the blockchain.)

A more detailed announcement of the Quasar upgrade is available here, with specific recommendations for miners and blockchain listeners. Source code for the Quasar upgrade will be available on the BitcoinSV.io website at https://download.bitcoinsv.io/bitcoinsv/0.2.1/.

Steve Shadders, nChain’s Chief Technology Officer and Technical Director of the Bitcoin SV Node team previews what is coming next: “With the Quasar upgrade, Bitcoin is beginning a cultural transition as miners start learning it is their role to manage block sizes based upon market forces and their own economic incentives, rather than leaving block size to be arbitrarily dictated by protocol developers. In February 2020, the BSV network will take another step in this transition with its ‘Genesis’ upgrade – in which the Bitcoin SV Node team will completely remove the default hard cap (or more accurately, the default hard cap will be infinite). This will open the door to infinite scaling of the BSV network, and foster the new Bitcoin culture where miners are responsible for block size.”

BrewDog embraces cryptocurrency payment; announces more time to invest in Equity for Punks

4th JULY 2019: The community of BrewDog shareholders has risen to over 114,000 during this latest round of Equity for Punks, and to give more people a chance to join them the craft brewer has announced today an extension to their ground-breaking share offer. Originally slated to close on Friday 5th July, Equity for Punks will now be extended until April 2020. 

To celebrate this milestone, BrewDog have unveiled a new way to invest – via Cryptocurrency. The natural next step for the brewery is to accept ten different blockchain currencies (Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Ethereum, Litecoin, OmiseGO, Qtum, Augur, Ripple and 0x). Investors can now buy shares online through these currencies as a payment option on the application form.

BrewDog started out to become an alternative to the status quo, to challenge perceptions, and the developers of Cryptocurrency are exactly the same. Adopting them so that potential Equity Punks can join BrewDog’s community of shareholders is a natural fit.

Equity Punk investors who purchase shares via cryptocurrency in this round will have access to 6 cans of a special craft beer – Cryptonite West Coast IPA – at the end of the raise as an additional benefit.

This latest share offer has welcomed over 17,000 new Equity Punks into the now 114,000+ strong global community; a community from whom we’ve raised over £72.1m in total investments to date. Shares in BrewDog cost £25 each and can be purchased through BrewDog’s website or via a paper application form.

BrewDog has a crew of over 1,500 employees, 80 locations worldwide with two world-class breweries in Ellon, Scotland and Columbus, Ohio that export to 60 markets globally. The incredible support received from its community of shareholders has enabled BrewDog to grow from two men and a dog into a business that in 2018 was named in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 for the seventh consecutive year.

James Watt, Captain of BrewDog, commented:

Our Equity Punks are our community, our shareholders and our friends and the driving force behind our business. The growth BrewDog has shown over the last decade could only have been achieved with their encouragement and support and together we have shown the city slickers what can be achieved with taking charge of something you believe in. Cryptocurrency is exactly the same. If you embrace change to subvert the mainstream we are in your corner; whether your weapons of choice are malt, hops, yeast and water or blockchain.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Investments can go down as well as up and invested capital is at risk. Investors should only invest on the basis of information contained in the prospectus (including the full risk factors set out therein) issued by BrewDog plc which is available here. Financial promotion approved by SPNV Limited (FCA No. 610217)

DrawBridge Lending offer Bitcoin (BSV) non-recourse loans with no margin calls

DrawBridge Lending现已上线以BSV担保无需追加保证金的无追索权贷款产品

英文版在这里

现在您可以使用比特币SV(BSV)进行担保贷款,这是加密货币的又一先例。位于芝加哥的DrawBridge Lending现已提供可通过BSV担保的无追索权贷款,且无需支付追加保证金。这不是将来时而是现在时,正如DrawBridge的首席执行官Jason Urbans介绍道:“近期我们批准了一家实体以BSV和BTC作担保的贷款,这笔共七位数的贷款由第三方托管人监管。交易利率仅为3%,远低于市场标准利率。采用标准的衍生品期权策略,我们得以通过运转抵押品来提供此利率的贷款。”

DrawBridge贷款产品的主要优势在于,借款人既可保留其BSV货币,又可用BSV产生的可观收益支付资金成本。借款人可保留其货币的所有权以及潜在的价格上涨空间,同时可根据自身需求灵活支配现金收益。在上述案例中,贷款后BSV价格上涨了150%,因此客户赚取了价格增值的部分,而如果仅用货币直接偿还贷款,客户并不能如此获益。

对于BSV生态系统而言,这是一个意义非凡的里程碑,因为首先,这表明了交易平台对使用BSV货币进行期权交易的支持,并明确反映出专业交易社区对BSV的认可。其次,随着货币衍生品交易在BSV生态系统中的广泛普及,金融机构将会开发更多实用的产品,以有效利用并释放此类资产的全部潜力。

BSV的支持者、艾尔集团(Ayre Group)和CoinGeek的所有者及创始人卡尔文·艾尔(Calvin Ayre)补充道:“当我第一次听说DrawBridge Lending对BSV的扩展计划时,其商业模式的明确性给我留下了极其深刻的印象,毋庸置疑,我非常高兴看到唯一可实现一切的货币正带来更多的实际商业效用。”

注意:期权交易根据名为ISDA主协议的标准法律协议进行。该协议是传统金融界内常见的交易基础,而在数字货币世界中处于初期采用阶段。
