? eToro Aims to Put Derivatives on the Blockchain With Lira Programming Language
eToro, an Israel-based exchange platform, revealed a new programming language designed to simplify derivatives trading.
Speaking ahead of the Ethereal Summit Tel Aviv 2019, on Sunday, chief blockchain specialist Omri Ross said the language, dubbed Lira, will reduce the risks involved in settling financial contracts and enable the creation of new derivative products from assets on the ethereum blockchain.
A demo trading platform, built by eToroX Labs, was also revealed to enable retail and institutional investors to begin trading derivatives. The platform uses Lira to test a full range of contract experimentation. The language opens up the possibility to set varying time limits on trades, trustlessly swap different cryptocurrencies and write complex settlement terms.
? Coinbase Pro to Add Support for DASH Trading
United States-based major cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase announced that its professional trading platform Coinbase Pro will launch support for DASH token next week.
According to a Medium post published by Coinbase on Sept. 12, Coinbase Pro will start accepting DASH deposits starting Monday “for at least 12 hours prior to enabling full trading.” The launch of DASH trading, on the other hand, is planned for 9 AM Pacific Standard Time on Sept. 17. The company also noted:
“Once sufficient supply of DASH is established on the platform, trading on the DASH/USD, and DASH/BTC order books will start in phases, beginning with post-only mode and proceeding to full trading should our metrics for a healthy market be met.”
? US Treasury: Non-Compliant Fintechs Won’t Survive the War on Terror
United States Treasury undersecretary Sigal Mandelker stated that cryptocurrencies could become “the next frontier” in the war on terrorism.
According to a press release published on the U.S. Treasury’s website on Sept. 11, Mandelker made her remarks during the 19th annual international conference on counterterrorism.
Cash is still predominant
While Mandelker admitted that most terrorist organizations still rely on various traditional means of financing such as cash, she also said that she believes crypto could become “the next frontier”:
“Terrorist organizations and their supporters and sympathizers are constantly looking for new ways to raise and transfer funds without detection or tracking by law enforcement. While most terrorist groups still primarily rely on the traditional financial system and cash to transfer funds, without the appropriate strong safeguards cryptocurrencies could become the next frontier.”
? Cybercriminals Selling Hacked Fiat Money for Bitcoin at 10% of Its Value
There’s now an underground service catering to criminals that lack the skills or nerve to hack into online accounts to steal funds.
According to a September report from security-as-a-service firm Armor, hackers on dark markets are now selling fiat cash for fractions of its worth to avoid the risk of dealing with the money themselves.
Armor’s Threat Resistance Unit (TRU) research team said in the report:
“There are plenty of hackers willing to simply transfer stolen funds to the bank account or PayPal account of your choice or send you the funds via Western Union.”
