Tech Giant Tencent Leads $20M Series A For Blockchain Supply Chain Startup Everledger Everledger, the U.K.-based blockchain supply chain startup, has raised $20 million in Series A.

BOJ Kuroda Urges Global Cooperation In Regulating Facebook’s Libra Haruhiko Kuroda, Governor of Bank of Japan (BOJ) said on Sept 24 that international cooperation was crucial in regulating stable coins such as Facebook’s planned Libra digital currency. “If Libra is introduced, it could have a huge impact on society,” Kuroda told business leaders in Osaka, western Japan, adding that policymakers must thus ensure that they apply the highest level of regulation to such stable coins.
Governor Of PBoC: CBDC Not Necessarily Uses Blockchain Technology, No Timetable Scheduled Yet While China is accelerating the development in digital payments, Governor of the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), YI Gang, clarified that although the research team of the central bank backed digital currency (CBDC) is taking blockchain, digital payments, and a range of frontier technologies into consideration, it is uncertain which one or ones will be used at last. Besides, the central bank has never preset a technical route for the CBDC, nor has it made any decisions on a precise timetable for the launch of the CBDC. YI Gang made the remark today on Sept 24 at the press conference for celebration of the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. The press conference focused on the latest ideas to foster a healthy, stable, and sustainable economy in the country. He added that the introduction of CBDC won’t change the current issuance or distribution of currencies. “The goal of the CBDC is to replace part of M0 (money in circulation), not M1 or M2,” he said. The Governor addressed that positive progress has been made in digital currency research. Note: M0 is the total of all physical currency including coinage. M1 money supply includes those monies that are very liquid such as cash, checkable (demand) deposits, and traveler’s checks. M2 money supply is less liquid in nature and includes M1 plus savings and time deposits, certificates of deposits, and money market funds.

BTC completed the downward break of 9890, the key hint of yesterday’s closing, in yesterday’s trading yesterday, and accelerated the downward trend further at night, and achieved the effective arrival of the first support line 9600, which was suggested in yesterday’s closing. Although the price has come out of a certain rebound performance, the actual rebound strength is limited. The forward market still operates in the disadvantaged areas. However, the rebound in early trading seems to be only the technical rebound correction after the first round of decline touches on the clear support position. It is reasonable that the price rebound correction occurs after the serious oversold of short-term indicators is consistent. Therefore, it is not recommended that the current rebound be interpreted excessively as long as the price remains at 98. Running below 90, the short-term downward target of 9400 mentioned in yesterday’s closure is still worth looking forward to. For BTC, the idea of short-term trading follow-up is further simplified. After the first wave of short-term orders landed smoothly, the short-term can continue to use 9890 and 9600 as benchmarks. The price reversal test of 9890 is again frustrated, or it is confirmed that after falling below 9600, a new round of short-term follow-up can be done to catch up with the target of 9400. When 9400 is in place, as long as there is no extreme situation of instantaneous dive breakdown, it is recommended to make profit settlement in time. This position can be used as a reference for strong support of midline level. There is a greater possibility of forming band stop-fall reversal near this area, and it is worth making key observation after it is in place.

Wheaton Precious Metals to Deploy Blockchain in Metal Accounting Processes

Wheaton Precious Metals to Deploy Blockchain in Metal Accounting Processes
Precious metals streaming company Wheaton Precious Metals (WPM) will use blockchain technology to facilitate its metal accounting processes, mining.com reported on June 12.

WPM has reportedly hired software company Blockhead Technologies to deploy its blockchain-based platform STAMP to streamline metal accounting processes. Specifically, the platform purportedly enables its users to track and source certification into mining value chains. By using the platform, WPM aims to boost data management processes and conduct data analysis.

WPM is one of the world's largest precious metals streaming companies. In the fourth quarter of 2018, WPM reportedly generated nearly $110 million in operating cash flow, bringing total operating cash flow for the year to over $475 million. The company produced over 370,000 ounces of gold, 24 million ounces of silver and 14,000 ounces of palladium.

Some other major producers and consumers of metals around the world have also integrated blockchain into their internal processes. In April, Volkswagen joined a blockchain-powered scheme to ensure the cobalt used in lithium-ion batteries for its electric vehicles is responsibly sourced.

In January, IBM partnered with MineHub Technologies to deliver a blockchain solution that will improve supply chain management in the mining and metals industry. The product is set to “increase the level of automation, reduce reliance on intermediaries and increase the speed at which goods are transferred from miners to end buyers.”

As reported last September, Hong Kong-based jewelry retailer Chow Tai Fook reportedly put records of some of its diamonds on a distributed leger developed by blockchain startup Everledger and secured by the IBM Blockchain Platform. This will reportedly enable the retailer’s customers to ascertain the origin and authenticity of gems sold in its T Mark-branded stores.

Public blockchain oligopoly risk.

The risk of a 51% attack often focuses on altering the blockchain; but could another risk be obtaining an effective monopoly on transaction fees? How could this occur?
Suppose a register of deeds or a certification process like the Kimberley process for diamonds agreed to use the Bitcoin blockchain as its system of record. Could representatives of a mining pool agree that transactions that have the characteristics of such registrations require some minimum fee to be processed and even perhaps exclude blocks that don't comply? If you wanted to register a deed or diamond, you would then be hostage to this. Of course one answer might be to make such conduct illegal, but that would require governments in the relevant countries to agree to enforce the law.
If you wonder how I came up with a crazy idea like this: A friend pointed me to a site that showed Everledger, a blockchain company that wants to register diamonds, wine, and a work of art. I wondered what the consequences would be if the Kimberley Process governance organization mandated registration on a particular blockchain.

How blockchain tech could change the way we do business - BBC News

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 81%. (I'm a bot)
Blockchain - the technology underpinning digital currency Bitcoin - has been in the news lately.
No. Blockchain is a method of recording data - a digital ledger of transactions, agreements, contracts - anything that needs to be independently recorded and verified as having happened.
If banks started sharing data using a tailor-made version of blockchain it could remove the need for middlemen, a lot of manual processing, and speed up transactions, says Mr Taylor, thereby reducing costs.
Last year, investment bank Goldman Sachs and Chinese investment firm IDG Capital Partners invested $50m in Circle Internet Financial, a start-up aiming to exploit blockchain technology to improve consumer money transfers.
Tech company Everledger is using blockchain to develop a system of warranties that enable mining companies to verify that their rough-cut diamonds are not being used by militias to fund conflicts, and that they comply with the Kimberley Process - a government and community-backed certification scheme for diamonds.
Estonian tech firm Guardtime has been at the forefront of the country's digital transformation, using its version of blockchain - Keyless Signature Infrastructure - to help the government manage and protect its citizens' data across about 1,000 online services.
