UAE Financial Watchdog Asks for Public Feedback on Crypto Regulation

The United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) has published draft regulations for crypto assets.

Seeking feedback from the industry
According to an official statement from Oct. 15, the SCA will be collecting public feedback on the draft regulations until Oct. 29 before providing the final drafted legislation regarding the industry.

All parties involved in the crypto industry, including investors, brokers, financial analysts, researchers, media and others, are invited to provide their feedback on the document, the SCA noted, adding that the proposals will be taken into consideration for the final regulation.

Providing guidance after enforcing regulation
As noted in the statement, the draft consists of 28 parts covering all aspects of the crypto asset industry in the UAE, including requirements for token issuers, security and custodial policies, measures for protecting investors and combating financial crimes, information security controls, as well as technology governance standards, among others.

Once the regulation is implemented, market participants will reportedly be able to request the SCA’s guidance on a specific part of the industry and regulatory requirements through its electronic services system, the authority said.

Bitcoin ‘Maybe Is a Partial Store of Value,’ Concedes Nouriel Roubini

Economist Nouriel Roubini — also known as “Dr. Doom” for his prediction of the 2007–2008 financial crisis and his criticism of cryptocurrencies — has conceded that Bitcoin (BTC) is “a partial store of value.”

Roubini made the concession during a panel alongside high-profile crypto industry figures such as Brock Pierce, Bobby Lee and Tone Vays during the CC Forum 2019 conference in London on Oct. 16.

The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York has postponed the hearing regarding the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) injunction filing against Telegram Open Network (TON) and its Gram token to Feb. 18–19, 2020.

California Man Sues AT&T Over Loss of $1.8M and Crypto Accounts

California resident Seth Shapiro has filed a lawsuit against wireless service giant AT&T alleging that its employees helped to perpetrate a SIM-swap which resulted in the theft of over $1.8 million in total, including cryptocurrencies.

The complaint filed on Oct. 17 claims that Shapiro is “a two-time Emmy Award-winning media and technology expert, author, and adjunct professor at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts.” The lawsuit alleges that between May 16 and May 18 AT&T employees transferred access to Shapiro’s mobile phone to outside hackers:

“AT&T employees obtained unauthorized access to Mr. Shapiro’s AT&T wireless account, viewed his confidential and proprietary personal information, and transferred control [...] to a phone controlled by third-party hackers in exchange for money. [...] The hackers then utilized their control over Mr. Shapiro’s AT&T wireless number [...] to access his personal and digital finance accounts and steal more than $1.8 million.”

Former Trump Advisor to Release Stablecoin Backed by Fractional Reserve

A former campaign adviser to United States President Donald Trump is planning to release a stablecoin based on a fractional reserve.

As Fortune reported on Oct. 21, Stephen Moore announced plans to launch a stablecoin dubbed Frax, which will be backed by a fractional reserve of U.S. dollars.

As such, the planned stablecoin will not be pegged one-to-one to a reserve of dollars but is based on algorithms that will loan out its reserves and gain interest in order to make certain that the value of the coin remains fixed to the dollar.

Moore and his business partner and co-founder of Frax, Sam Kazemian, said that the stablecoin — which is expected to be launched in the coming months — will be built upon established blockchains that ensure a tamper-resistant public record.

Rep. Warren Davidson: You Have to Defend Money to Defend Freedom

In an interview with Cointelegraph on Friday, Oct. 18, United States Representative Warren Davidson gave his thoughts on the Securities Exchange Commission’s (SEC) flawed approach to regulating digital assets as well as Mark Zuckerberg’s upcoming Oct. 23 testimony before the House Financial Services Committee.

Congressman Davidson (R-OH) is a figure familiar to many in the crypto world for his role in authoring the Token Taxonomy Act, as well as his general optimism about the role of blockchain in the U.S.

On regulating Libra as a security
While discussing regulating cryptocurrencies at large as opposed to Libra, Davidson was highly precise in his taxonomic definitions:

“We use the term ‘cryptocurrencies’ to refer to everything in the crypto space, which is sloppy language. What we need to focus on is, what is Libra’s goal? Its goal is to be a currency. Let’s not conflate that with what other things in the space want to do and how we regulate them. How we look at Libra would be to apply, in my view, the Token Taxonomy litmus test.”

Zuckerberg: Facebook Would Leave Libra if It Launched Too Early

Facebook could withdraw from the Libra Association — the governing body of the eponymous stablecoin project — should it launch without approval from regulators in the United States.

Libra could lose its primary member
In a Congressional hearing on Oct. 23, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg reiterated the company’s commitment to not launch its planned cryptocurrency project until it receives the green light from U.S. regulators.

Zuckerberg delivered his statements before the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee, where lawmakers grilled him on various aspects of the company’s activities including Libra, data practices and the handling of hate speech on its platform.

Security Numbering Association to Consider Standards for Digital Assets

A global association of national numbering agencies has set up a new task force to assess the adoption of name standards for digital assets.

All types of tokens to be considered
The Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) will examine the identification of digital assets such as tokens and cryptocurrencies, the organization announced on Oct. 23.

ANNA oversees the work of global national numbering agencies — organizations responsible for issuing International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) —  and will now consider the role and scope of ISINs in regard to the identification of digital assets.

Within the new initiative, ANNA will provide recommendations on the potential advantages of creating global standards for the assignment of ISINs to all types of digital assets including asset tokens, payment tokens, utility tokens and hybrid tokens, the association clarified.

Bakkt Announces First Regulated Options Contract for Bitcoin

Bakkt announced on Oct. 24 that it will be launching the first regulated options contract for Bitcoin (BTC) futures on Dec. 9.

Bakkt options contract is certified with CFTC
According to the Bitcoin futures exchange, the key features of the Bakkt Bitcoin Options contract include capital efficiency, cash or physical settlement, European-style options, low fees, as well as instant messaging, block trades and options analytics.

A European-style option is an option contract that limits the opportunity for early execution and reduces operational burdens, the firm noted.

The new options product is based on customer feedback, explains CEO Kelly Loeffler and is designed to hedge or gain bitcoin exposure.

Bakkt adds:

“ICE Futures U.S. has self-certified the contract with the CFTC and we’re excited to leverage the benchmark futures prices and institutional-grade custody to meet the needs for a regulated options contract.”

Bitcoin Price Skyrockets to $8.7K Confirming Previous Bottom Signals

Bitcoin (BTC) price just made a $1,200 rally towards $8,700, leaving bears and shorts behind. Several signals were pointing towards a potential trend shift and price reversal, while the overall market sentiment was still extreme fear.

The majority of the market was looking for lower levels to buy and most often when the majority expects one thing, the opposite happens.

However, what were the reasons behind this latest push?

Bitcoin Price Soars 42% to $10,500 — Biggest Daily Gain Since 2011

By Thursday, BTC/USD was sitting on the bottom trendline of the descending channel and many investors and analysts were calling for a drop to $7,000.

A few even predicted that a revisit to the long-term support at $6,500 was on the cards. Despite the bearish bias, traders like Scott Melker and Michaël van de Poppe spotted a series of bullish divergences on the 4-hour and daily timeframe and by Friday morning (Oct. 25) the chart and various indicators on the hourly and 4-hour timeframe were flashing bullish.

Investors believed that a quick upside move to $7,700-$7,800 would occur and many expected that bears would open their short positions at the top of this range and eventually push Bitcoin price back down to the mid $7,000s or high $6,000s at worst.

Where to Spend Bitcoin: A Global Overview From Ljubljana to Zurich

There’s no easy way to buy, send or spend cryptocurrency in person — not even for a slice of pizza or a cup of coffee, or so it’s been said. Meanwhile, the number of physical merchant locations that accept crypto payments keeps growing.

As of late October 2019, 15,558 business venues worldwide were accepting Bitcoin (BTC) as a method of payment, up 18% from a year earlier, according to Coinmap.org. The crowdsourced heatmap, devised by Satoshi Labs in 2013, draws on input from consumers and merchants.
