ETHEREUM & RIPPLE
Tullett Prebon Information (TPI) is a provider of “real-time price information from the global OTC financial and commodity markets.” Recently, the organization signed a deal with Brave New Coin stating that they will distribute price and technical data for over 50 of the world’s top-performing digital currencies, including Ethereum and Ripple. The move will allow TPI to distribute Brave New Coin’s exchange feed and Bitcoin Liquid Index (BLX) to their growing list of clientele.
Brave New Coin CEO Fran Strajnar expressed enthusiasm over the company’s conjoined efforts with TPI:
“We are thrilled to be partnering with TPI, leaders in global market information, who recognize the importance of transparency across all asset classes, old and new.”
High-ranking cryptocurrency Dash has been integrated into Living Room of Satoshi, often touted as one of Australia’s leading startups.
The company works to help users pay their bills online, and Dash marks the second method available to present clients. Founder and CEO Daniel Alexiuc says that while some tests were performed with other cryptocurrencies, there was never any doubt that Dash was the way to go:
“We’ve tested other coins like Ethereum, but frequent hard forks and reliability issues make it unfeasible. Dash is perfectly suited as a payment system for bills and real world purchasing of goods and services. From the start, Dash was able to fill the holes Bitcoin created. Dash has the ability to effect transactions instantly.”
BLOCKCHAIN IN SPACE
The California Space Center (CSC) has launched “Copernic,” a blockchain-based financial management system designed for the space industry.
Eventually, humans are slated to colonize other planets, and when that happens, Copernic will be ready. The platform is scheduled to provide the infrastructure for America’s future space economy and give “space assets” specific and defined values.
Space Center founder Eva Blaisdell explains:
“Now is the time to embrace the limitless possibility of the Space Economy. The economy should not rely on sluggish and inefficient systems that currently dominate Earth operations. Blockchain is rapidly becoming an integral part of the most advanced systems on Earth. Just as with rocket technology, the foundation for space’s economy should be based on future standards. Tremendous distance is only one of the many problems that must be solved with a future system; a blockchain with independent integrity is required for the space economy to grow.”
