The European Banking Authority (EBA) said on Wednesday that issuers of stablecoins should start preparing for new EU rules, even though they will come into force next June.

The regulator said the EBA wanted to encourage timely preparatory action ahead of that start date to protect consumers and reduce hardship for businesses on June 30.

EU Markets in Cryptoassets (MiCA) regulation, which sets out governance and reserve requirements for cryptocurrencies pegged to the value of other assets, will come into force six months ahead of other licensing rules for crypto wallet providers and exchanges.

The European Union’s ESMA publishes the first batch of detailed cryptocurrency rules.

Hong Kong is exploring the launch of stablecoin HKDG to compete with established stablecoins such as USDT and USDC. By backing HKDG with foreign exchange reserves, the government seeks to foster financial innovation and maintain its leadership in the blockchain space.

By issuing a Hong Kong dollar-pegged stablecoin (HKDG), the government aims to increase transaction efficiency, reduce costs and improve the existing payment system.

A new report by influential financial lobby group UK Finance is pushing the UK government to put the tokenized market at the top of its agenda.

UK Finance, the influential lobby group for banks and financial institutions in the UK, has laid out a five-year plan for the country’s government to become a world leader in the tokenization market.

UK Finance Chairman Bob Wigley said, “Tokenization of securities has the potential to transform financial markets by reducing costs, reducing risk and increasing market access. But if bold action is not continued, the UK risks falling behind other jurisdictions.”

A new study by Juniper Research, an expert in the emerging payments space, has found that the value of global stablecoin-powered payment transactions will exceed $187 billion by 2028, up from $53 billion in 2023.

The study found that stablecoins in particular have made rapid progress in cross-border markets, where they are a key way to bypass slow, expensive and difficult-to-trace existing cross-border payment corridors.

By 2028, cross-border stablecoin payment transaction volume will account for nearly 73% of the total global stablecoin payment transaction volume; showing the dominance of cross-border use cases.

Stablecoins are very effective because they eliminate various stages in the cross-border process, increase the speed of transactions and settlements, and greatly improve traceability. The main hurdle to further growth is acceptance, and the launch of stablecoins requires building and scaling new networks.

Stablecoins haven’t generally rallied as bitcoin prices approached all-time highs this year. Ratings agency Fitch noted in a report that stablecoin trading volumes are low compared to the industry’s total market capitalization.

The Block’s data dashboard shows that the total supply of stablecoins has dropped from $138 billion at the beginning of the year to $124 billion on July 3.

The monthly average daily trading volume of the top ten stablecoins dropped from $53 billion in March 2023 to $28 billion in May. However, Fitch noted that assets backing stablecoins have better liquidity.

Shapeshift founder and long-time Bitcoin advocate Erik Voorhees believes that DeFi has solved the problem of regulatory clarity, prohibiting people from owning or trading most cryptocurrencies.

Voorhees said that DeFi is “permissionless” in nature, meaning that if people want to trade and own altcoins that are not listed on a centralized exchange, they can turn to a decentralized protocol.

DeFi protocols do not require explicit regulatory or operating licenses, and there is little that governments can do to intervene beyond making DeFi-related transactions illegal.

The Chibi Financial Project’s native token, CHIBI, has fallen 99% since reports emerged that the team behind the Chibi Financial Project stole over $1 million from various investors.

This DeFi runs on Arbitrum’s L2. CHIBI was quoted at $0,00964534 at the time of writing, down 5.1% over the past 24 hours. The coin has seen a 99,40% price drop over the past two days, reaching $1,62 on June 26.

Bank of America (BAC) said in a research note on Thursday that tokenization is just one application of blockchain technology, but it is one that could transform financial and non-financial infrastructure and financial markets over the next five to 15 years. application.

Bank of America notes that it took 30 years for disruptive technologies like radio, television and email to reach mainstream adoption. It expects a much shorter lag period for digital assets. With the “increasing opportunity cost of unearned efficiencies,” the implementation of blockchain technology will accelerate across financial institutions and enterprises.

An investigative report by crypto analytics firm Solidus Labs shows that 56% of ERC-20 tokens were involved in insider trading when they first listed on the three top centralized cryptocurrency exchanges.

The report studied 234 ERC-20 token listing announcements from three of the world’s largest centralized trading platforms. According to on-chain data, 411 transactions in the scope of the investigation were related to more than 100 insiders.

Many entities use DeFi trading platforms to buy tokens before they are listed on CEX, and make a profit by selling these tokens after the listing is announced and the price increases. In total, the insiders are estimated to have profited around $24 million from the illicit transactions.

Solidus Labs co-founder Chen Arad said that if more than half of all tokens listed are not tokens that can be purchased in trust, then it is an inefficient market. This problem is one of the obstacles in taking cryptocurrency to the next level.

DeBank’s top 10 whale wallet address trader @DefiSquared posted on social media that the Sui Foundation is deliberately distorting SUI emissions, and there is evidence that the Sui team is transferring locked and non-negotiable SUI staking rewards to Binance sell off.

@DefiSquared stated that the SUI supply is actually increasing daily, including emissions from locked SUI allocations (such as VC shares) that are free to unlock without restriction. Pledge release is roughly equivalent to an additional release of 33,000,000 SUI per month. Of the 600 million SUI circulating supply, approximately 250 million are non-base circulating supply, which means that these releases have increased by 10% of the non-base circulating supply.

In addition to the monthly token supply, there is also a monthly non-base circulating SUI of 37 million from Launchpad. In other words, if investors hold SUI, their current monthly holdings will be diluted by about 20%.

In addition, according to the data on the chain, the SUI Foundation, which has nearly 3 billion non-circulating and locked SUI (6 times the entire circulating supply), is selling unlocking rewards on the open market. The foundation address (holding 2.7 billion SUI) has sent 27,000,000 SUI to the Binance platform.

Since the launch of the Ethscriptions protocol in mid-June, the transaction volume of tokens issued based on the protocol has exceeded 560 ETH ($1 million), according to OpenSea.

Still, the protocol is currently in a highly speculative phase and lacks a clear value proposition. But its creator, Tom Lehman, asserts that Ethscriptions offer a cost-effective alternative to Ethereum NFTs.

It should be noted that tokens issued based on Ethscriptions are not exactly like traditional NFTs. They do not comply with the ERC-721 standard (the standard most commonly associated with NFTs on Ethereum) and cannot be transferred or sold in the same way. They are the only representation of data permanently recorded on the Ethereum blockchain.

Japan’s largest bank, Mitsubishi UFJ, is said to be in talks with the firm behind the popular global stablecoin and others to issue such tokens through the bank’s blockchain platform.

Japan’s stablecoin law, one of the first legislation in a major economy, came into effect on June 1, which effectively means that only licensed banks and related financial companies in the country can issue tokens.

MUFG vice president of product Tatsuya Saito said the bank is in discussions with various parties to use its blockchain platform Progmat to create stablecoins pegged to foreign currencies, including the U.S. dollar, for global use.

He said that now that Japan’s legislation is in effect, issuers and users will have a sense of security when using stablecoins. However, he declined to say which stablecoin parties he is negotiating with.

Last two years , our App has been active on Twitter without any issues or violations of the platform’s regulations.We’ve worked hard to follow Twitter’s guidelines and maintain a positive image. I kindly request your assistance in resolving this matter. ”

Shibburn tweeted that its bots were unable to post content on Twitter due to the previously mentioned issues. However, users can view the latest SHIB destruction data through its website.

SafeDAO, the governance community of digital asset management platform Safe (formerly Gnosis Safe), once again launched an official proposal to enable the transferability of SAFE tokens.

Currently SEP#2 has been submitted to the community to enable the transferability of SAFE tokens, and the community voted to delay making SAFE tokens transferable. SEP#3 followed, voting to complete some milestones before enabling token transferability.

About eight months ago, SAFE tokens were eligible to be claimed, but the transferability of the tokens was locked as a function of the smart contract. Previously, SafeDAO’s proposal on “open SAFE tradability” was not approved.

Turks are flocking to the cryptocurrency market as a safe haven against the lira’s plunge. Local demand for USDT surged ahead of the general election in early May and has remained high since Erdogan’s re-election as Turkey’s president sparked market turmoil.

In early June, the lira accounted for 10 percent of the total in the $1.1 trillion-a-day crypto market, after peaking at 18 percent in May and 4 percent in early 2023, according to data from Kaiko. %.

Despite the global regulatory crackdown on the crypto asset class, the lira fared worse, falling below record lows in recent days. The Turkish lira has fallen 11% against the dollar in the past week as the central bank pulled back from intervention in the currency after the election.

According to data from blockchain analysis company Glassnode, the inflow of funds in the cryptocurrency market in the past 30 days was mainly driven by the inflow of funds in Bitcoin (a monthly increase of 4.47 billion US dollars) and Ethereum (a monthly increase of 3.5 billion US dollars).

However, due to the large number of redemptions in the stablecoin space, stablecoin capital outflow reached about 1.2 billion US dollars, which partially offset the inflow growth.

The outflow of stablecoin funds is mainly affected by the second largest asset (USDC) and the third largest asset (BUSD), whose supply decreases by 15.7 billion US dollars and 11.5 billion US dollars in 2023, while the largest asset (USDT) absorbs Most of the stable currency liquidity.

Cumberland, the cryptocurrency subsidiary of DRW, released a report on non-US dollar stablecoins. The report pointed out that currently, US dollar-denominated stablecoins account for 99.3% of all stablecoins and are also among the top ten stablecoin tokens.

The report highlighted multiple use cases for non-U.S. dollar stablecoins, including foreign exchange transactions and cross-border remittances. Bringing even a fraction of the $7.5 trillion in average daily forex trading volume into the crypto orbit would have a huge boost to volume.

In addition, the report noted some cost comparisons for converting dollars to euros.

Uniswap Research puts the cost of exchanging $500 on Uniswap at $7, compared with $28 for banks and $19 for remittance operators.

The G7 G7 and the G20 G20 have differences in the treatment of stablecoins. The developed economies that make up the G7 seem to be more willing to allow and regulate stablecoins. Emerging economies represented by the G20 Group call for stricter restrictions, and even prohibit.

Both have pledged to implement the FATF’s cryptocurrency anti-money laundering rules. The disagreement between the two agencies could hinder acceptance of global norms for stablecoins, or at least threaten to undermine the unified regulation envisioned by global financial watchdogs, two senior officials involved in discussions at the forum said.

Megabank Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) has announced that its stablecoin issuance platform, Progmat Coin, will soon be used by the Bank of Japan to launch yen-pegged stablecoins on multiple public blockchains.

These addresses hold a total of 887.86 trillion SHIB worth $7.75 billion, accounting for 90.31% of the total SHIB supply.

It is worth noting, however, that 410.35 trillion SHIBs are stored in a “dead” address for destruction. This means that a significant portion of the SHIB supply is effectively unusable.

Of the aforementioned 1 million addresses, more than a third were individuals who purchased SHIB in the $0.000009 to $0.000014 price range.

NBA Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban commented on a recent tweet regarding the US SEC calling Filecoin (FIL) a security and sent a letter to Grayscale on the issue.

One possible scenario for cryptocurrency issuing platforms, Cuban said, is that they release the entire token supply without keeping a portion as a treasury. The issued tokens should be used to provide liquidity using DeFi, and the original entity that issued the tokens should be dissolved.

In this case, he argues, “true decentralization” exists, and regulators such as the SEC won’t be able to “shut down the token,” accusing it of being a security, as they do with XRP, FIL, and other cryptocurrencies Same.

Since the beginning of the year, the cryptocurrency market capitalization has soared 41.77%, and the current market value reaches 1.17 trillion US dollars.

Masaaki Taira, a lawmaker from Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party and head of the Web3 project team, said at the NexTech Week trade show in Tokyo on Thursday that Japan has seen the future, and that is blockchain.

While other jurisdictions try to regulate a space that is not fully understood, Japan has a relatively good grasp of what we are trying to push, and global technology companies have taken notice.

Additionally, Japan’s experiments with stablecoins are bearing fruit, with the agency looking for ways to link public and private blockchains to improve scalability.

And Japan’s soft power in animation, manga, and games is very suitable for the Web3 field, especially in the field of NFT and Metaverse development, which are full of untapped potential value.
