BLOCKCHAIN WAYNE: Hey, everyone, welcome and thanks for watching, so exciting day today we’re joined today by the CEO of…

In the traditional financial world, assets are routinely bundled and securitized, before being sold to investors. As NFTs garner more press and investor attention, they’re also being worked into another emerging business sector: DeFi. As that happens, there will be a move to develop ways to generate returns on the value NFTs represent, through DeFi and otherwise; and NFTs will become part of the solution to a problem that plagues decentralized finance, that of determining an adequate level of collateral for loans.

As this happens, we will also see the emergence of a new class of stablecoin funded by pooled…

NFTs are selling for hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions, of dollars. What is this new type of token, and where does its value come from? Are people really paying vast sums, often in crypto, for GIFs, JPGs and tweets? Yes and no.

NFTs aren’t just a way to repackage extant digital materials. They have use cases beyond the sale of digital artwork and value sources beyond hype and speculation.

What is an NFT?

NFTs are non-fungible tokens. That means they’re tokens that aren’t interchangeable with other tokens of the same type. We just did a post on what NFTs are, so we won’t…

With the United States having finally ‘declared’ a victor in the 2020 presidential election, we can finally untie and turn our heads to look forward. Or so, we hoped. What is more likely though is a messy transition, filled with more uncertainty, with the next 4 years being managed by President Joe Biden. It feels like we, the market, have been living in an off world type of simulation the last 4 years — so much so that no one is very certain how things will turn out in the cryptocurrency world with a new President in the White House.

Facebook’s entrance into the stablecoin game with Libra was in many ways a wake-up call to regulatory bodies and entrenched financial institutions worldwide. Previously slumbering bears were officially awakened when they realized the potential reach between Facebook’s three-legged horse of Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. This, in part, is a big reason why Libra still hasn’t launched yet — and may not fully do so in the way it originally planned as it bears down against governing bodies both abroad and in the United States. Facebook, and specifically Libra, now renamed Diem, were the specific targets of a recently released report

On a cold, mid-November day, the Federal Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the United States did something very few would think it would allow. It took many by surprise that the SEC would allow social media platform IMVU to essentially mint its own stablecoin, advising that they would “not recommend enforcement action” against the platform. This is a huge swing in the stance they took on Facebook’s proposed Libra Coin a mere couple (actually a bit more, but who’s counting) of months ago. Not only will they allow IMVU to issue its stablecoin, VCOIN, but it will also allow…

KORY HOANG: Hey everyone, my name is Kory. I’m the CEO and founder of Stably. We are a Seattle-based stablecoin startup, whoo-hoo in the 206. …

For many, stablecoins have brought with them the long-promised utility function to the cryptocurrency world. A magical key that has finally unlocked digital assets, bringing in millions of new users and billions of dollars. While this has proved to be true in 2020, there are also risks involved in moving all your money into stablecoins. Like many problems in life, there simply isn’t a panacea, or an elixir to quell all worries and risks — especially when it comes to a new type of financial instrument, no matter how “stable” it is. After all, stablecoins aren’t technically anything new. While…
