Stellar x Elon

I saw a video by Chico Crypto about Elon Musk and Bitcoin. It was fun to watch but it gets better.
Elon Musk is connected to Stellar directly or indirectly through Stripe.
Elon Musk Backs Stripe (2012)
Jed Working At Ripple, Stripe Deal Falls Apart and Jed Leaves Ripple (2013)
Stripe Provides Seed Funding For Stellar ( 2014)
Stellar Launches with Rocket Ship Logo. Stripe gets %2 of all Lumens ( 4% today after coin burn)
Keith Rabois is on the Stellar Board of Directors. He is connected to Elon Musk in many ways. The earliest tie goes back to the PayPal Mafia before Bitcoin was even a thing.
In May this year Stellar Board Member Keith Rabios showed how loyal he is to Elon Musk.
Stripe and Stellar seem even more tight when you look into AnchorUSD. This project is Co-Founded by Jim Berkley-Danz. Early Stripe Engineer. Also, offer a Payment API solution integrating Stripe/PayPal and StellaBitcoin - Airpay.
There has even been public discussion between Elon Musk and (Stripe CEO/Stellar Advisor) Patrick Collison on twitter:
📷Patrick Collison@patrickc·Apr 4, 2019I recently drove a @Tesla for the first time (yes, late to the party), and it is truly an amazing car. So many details are *years* ahead of everyone else. Genuinely inspiring to see how much improvement can be conjured by a small group of dedicated outsiders.
Elon Musk@elonmusk·Apr 4, 2019Replying to @patrickc and @TeslaGreat work with Stripe btw. Much needed.
I can go on, there are so many dots to connect so feel free to add to this. Stellar x Stripe X Elon. How is he not attached to this space themed crypto at its earliest incarnation when there is a paper trail like this?
More on this soon. And no, it wont be suppressed and blocked like it was on Stellar

Crypto Banking Wars: Can BlockFi & Celsius Disrupt Banking?

Crypto Banking Wars: Can BlockFi & Celsius Disrupt Banking?
These crypto lending & borrowing services found early traction. Are they capable of bundling more financial services and winning the broader consumer finance market?
https://reddit.com/link/icps9l/video/98kl1y596zh51/player
This is the third part of Crypto Banking Wars — a new series that examines what crypto-native company is most likely to become the bank of the future. Who is best positioned to reach mainstream adoption in consumer finance?
While crypto allows the world to get rid of banks, a bank will still very much be necessary for this very powerful technology to reach the masses. As we laid out in our previous series, Crypto-Powered, we believe a crypto-native company will ultimately become the bank of the future. We’re confident Genesis Block will have a seat at that table, but we aren’t the only game in town.
In the first post of this series, we did an analysis of big crypto exchanges like Coinbase & Binance. In our second episode, we looked at the world of non-custodial wallets.
Today we’re analyzing crypto lending & borrowing services. The Earn and Borrow use-case covers a lot of what traditional banks deliver today. This category of companies is a threat worth analyzing. As we look at this market, we’ll mostly be focused on custodial, centralized products like BlockFi, Nexo, and Celsius.
Many of these companies found early traction among crypto users. Are they capable of bundling more financial services and winning the broader consumer finance market? Let’s find out.

Institutional Borrowers

Because speculation and trading remains one of the most popular use-cases of crypto, a new crypto sub-industry around credit has emerged. Much of the borrowing demand has been driven by institutional needs.
For example, a Bitcoin mining company might need to borrow fiat to pay for operational costs (salaries, electricity). Or a crypto company might need to borrow USD to pay for engineering salaries. Or a crypto hedge fund needs to borrow for leverage or to take a specific market position. While all of these companies have sufficient crypto to cover the costs, they might not want to sell it — either for tax or speculative reasons (they may believe these crypto assets will appreciate, as with most in the industry).
Instead of selling their crypto, these companies can use their crypto as collateral for loans. For example, they can provide $1.5M in Bitcoin as collateral, and borrow $1M. Given the collateralization happening, the underwriting process becomes straightforward. Companies all around the world can participate — language and cultural barriers are removed.

https://preview.redd.it/z9pby83d6zh51.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=54bf425215c3ed6d5ff0ca7dbe571e735b994613
The leader (and one of our partners) in this space is Genesis Capital. While they are always the counterparty for both lenders and borrowers, they are effectively a broker. They are at the center of the institutional crypto lending & borrowing markets. Their total active loans as of March 2020 was $649M. That number shot up to $1.42B in active loans as of June 2020. The growth of this entire market segment is impressive and it’s what is driving this opportunity for consumers downstream.

Consumer Products

While most of the borrowing demand comes from institutional players, there is a growing desire from consumers to participate on the lend/supply side of the market. Crypto consumers would love to be able to deposit their assets with a service and watch it grow. Why let crypto assets sit on an exchange or in cold storage when it can be earning interest?
A number of consumer-facing products have emerged in the last few years to make this happen. While they also allow users to borrow (always with collateral), most of the consumer attraction is around growing their crypto, even while they sleep. Earning interest. These products usually partner with institutional players like Genesis Capital to match the deposits with borrowing demand. And it’s exactly part of our strategy as well, beyond leveraging DeFi (decentralized finance protocols).
A few of the most popular consumer services in this category include BlockFi, Nexo, and Celsius.

https://preview.redd.it/vptig5mg6zh51.png?width=1051&format=png&auto=webp&s=b5fdc241cb9b6f5b495173667619f8d2c93371ca

BlockFi

BlockFi (Crunchbase) is the leader in this category (at least in the West). They are well-capitalized. In August 2019, they raised $18.3M in their Series A. In Feb 2020, they raised $30M in their Series B. In that same time period, they went from $250M in assets under management to $650M. In a recent blog post, they announced that they saw a 100% revenue increase in Q2 and that they were on track to do $50M in revenue this year. Their growth is impressive.
BlockFi did not do an ICO, unlike Celsius, Nexo, Salt, and Cred. BlockFi has a lot of institutional backing so it is perceived as the most reputable in the space. BlockFi started with borrowing — allowing users to leverage their crypto as collateral and taking out a loan against it. They later got into Earning — allowing users to deposit assets and earn interest on it. They recently expanded their service to “exchange” functionality and say they are coming out with a credit card later this year.

https://preview.redd.it/byv2tbui6zh51.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=bac080dcfc85e89574c30dfb396db0b537d46706
Security Woes
It’s incredible that BlockFi has been able to see such strong growth despite their numerous product and security woes. A few months ago, their systems were compromised. A hacker was able to access confidential data, such as names, dates of birth, postal addresses, and activity histories. While no funds were lost, this was a massive embarrassment and caused reputational damage.

https://preview.redd.it/lwmxbz5l6zh51.png?width=606&format=png&auto=webp&s=ebd8e6e5c31c56da055824254b35b218b49f80e0
Unrelated to that massive security breach and earlier in the year, a user discovered a major bug that allowed him to send the same funds to himself over and over again, ultimately accumulating more than a million dollars in his BlockFi account. BlockFi fortunately caught him just before withdrawal.
Poor Product Execution
Beyond their poor security — which they are now trying to get serious about — their products are notoriously buggy and hard-to-use. I borrowed from them a year ago and used their interest account product until very recently. I have first-hand experience of how painful it is. But don’t take my word for it… here are just a few tweets from customers just recently.

https://preview.redd.it/wcqu3icn6zh51.png?width=1055&format=png&auto=webp&s=870e2f06a6ec377a87e5d6d1f24579a901de66b5
For a while, their interest-earning product had a completely different authentication system than their loan product (users had two sets of usernames/passwords). Many people have had issues with withdrawals. The app is constantly logging people out, blank screens, ugly error messages. Emails with verification codes are sometimes delayed by hours (or days). I do wonder if their entire app has been outsourced. The sloppiness shines through.
Not only is their product buggy and UX confusing, but their branding & design is quite weak. To the left is a t-shirt they once sent me. It looks like they just found a bunch of quirky fonts, added their name, and slapped it on a t-shirt.

https://preview.redd.it/mi6yeppp6zh51.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=fd4cd8201ad0d5bc667498096388377895b72953
Culture
To the innocent bystander, many of these issues seem totally fixable. They could hire an amazing design agency to completely revamp their product or brand. They could hire a mercenary group of engineers to fix their bugs, etc. While it could stop the bleeding for a time, it may not solve the underlying issues. Years of sloppy product execution represents something much more destructive. It represents a top-down mentality that shipping anything other than excellence is okay: product experience doesn’t matter; design doesn’t matter; craftsmanship doesn’t matter; strong execution doesn’t matter; precision doesn’t matter. That’s very different from our culture at Genesis Block.
This cancerous mentality rarely stays contained within product & engineering — this leaks to all parts of the organization. No design agency or consulting firm will fix some of the pernicious values of a company’s soul. These are deeper issues that only leadership can course-correct.
If BlockFi’s sloppiness were due to constant experimentation, iteration, shipping, or some “move fast and break things” hacker culture… like Binance… I would probably cut them more slack. But there is zero evidence of that. “Move fast and break things” is always scary when dealing with financial products. But in BlockFi’s case, when it’s more like “move slow and break things,” they are really playing with fire. Next time a massive security breach occurs, like what happened earlier this year, they may not be so lucky.
Institutional Focus
Based on who is on their team, their poor product execution shouldn’t be a surprise. Their team comes mostly from Wall Street, not the blockchain community (where our roots are). Most of BlockFi’s blockchain/crypto integration is very superficial. They take crypto assets as deposits, but they aren’t leveraging any of the exciting, low-level DeFi protocols like we are.
While their Wall Street heritage isn’t doing them any favors on the product/tech side, it’s served them very well on winning institutional clients. This is perhaps their greatest strength. BlockFi has a strong institutional business. They recently brought on Three Arrows Capital as a strategic investor — a crypto hedge fund who does a lot of borrowing. In that announcement, BlockFi’s founder said that bringing them on “aligns well with our focus on international expansion of our institutional services offering.” They also recently brought someone on who will lead business development in Asia among institutional clients.
BlockFi Wrap Up
There are certainly BlockFi features that overlap with Genesis Block’s offering. It’s possible that they are angling to become the bank of the future. However, they simply have not proven they are capable of designing, building, and launching world-class consumer products. They’ve constantly had issues around security and poor product execution. Their company account and their founder’s account seem to only tweet about Bitcoin. I don’t think they understand, appreciate, or value the power of DeFi. It’s unlikely they’ll be leveraging it any time soon. All of these reasons are why I don’t see them as a serious threat to Genesis Block.
However, because of their strong institutional offering, I hope that Genesis Block will ultimately have a very collaborative and productive partnership with them. Assuming they figure out their security woes, we could park some of our funds with BlockFi (just as we will with Genesis Capital and others). I think what’s likely to happen is that we’ll corner the consumer market and we’ll work closely with BlockFi on the institutional side.
I’ve been hard on BlockFi because I care. I think they have a great opportunity at helping elevate the entire industry in a positive way. But they have a lot of issues they need to work through. I really don’t want to see users lose millions of dollars in a security breach. It could set back the entire industry. But if they do things well… a rising tide lifts all boats.

Honorable Mentions

Celsius (ICO Drops) raised $50M in an ICO, and is led by serial entrepreneur Alex Mashinsky. I’ve met him, he’s a nice guy. Similar to Binance, their biggest Achilles heel could be their own token. There are also a lot of unanswered questions about where their deposits go. They don’t have a record of great transparency. They recently did a public crowdraise which is a little odd given their large ICO as well as their supposed $1B in deposits. Are they running out of money, as some suggest? Unclear. One of their biggest blindspots right now is that Mashinsky does not understand the power of DeFi. He is frequently openly criticizing it.
Nexo (ICO Drops) is another similar service. They are European-based, trying to launch their own card (though they’ve been saying this forever and they still haven’t shipped it), and have a history in the payments/fintech space. Because they haven’t penetrated the US — which is a much harder regulatory nut to crack — they are unlikely to be as competitive as BlockFi. There were also allegations that Nexo was spreading FUD about Chainlink while simultaneously partnering with them. Did Nexo take out a short position and start spreading rumors? Never a dull moment in crypto.
Other players in the lending & borrowing space include Unchained Capital, Cred (ICO Drops), and Salt (ICO Drops).

Wrap Up

While many companies in this category seem to be slowly adding more financial services, I don’t believe any of them are focused on the broader consumer market like we are. To use services like BlockFi, Nexo, or Celsius, users need to be onboarded and educated on how crypto works. At Genesis Block, we don’t believe that’s the winning approach. We think blockchain complexity should be abstracted away from the end-user. We did an entire series about this, Spreading Crypto.
For many of these services, there is additional friction due to ICO tokens that are forcefully integrated into the product (see NEXO token or CEL Token). None of these services have true banking functionality or integration with traditional finance —for example, easy offramp or spending methods like debit cards. None of them are taking DeFi seriously — they are leveraging crypto for only the asset class, not the underlying technology around financial protocols.
So are these companies potential competitors to Genesis Block? For the crypto crowd, yes. For the mass market, no. None of these companies are capable of reaching the billions of people around the world that we hope to reach at Genesis Block.

$100 gratis bij BlockFi bij storten van $200 in crypto

BlockFi heeft nu een nog betere actie dan hun net gestarte referral programma: $100 gratis in BTC als je $200 in cryptocurrency stort en laat staan tot eind juli. Stort in stablecoins (USDC) zodat je geen risico op koersfluctuaties hebt!
Zie hier: https://try.blockfi.com/bitcoin-halving-promo/
Promotional terms: Offer valid until 23:59:59 UTC on May 14, 2020. To be eligible for the promotion, you must have a balance of $0 on May 10, 2020, this must be your first ever deposit in the BlockFi Interest Account, and you must maintain a $200+ balance through 23:59:59 UTC on July 30, 2020. The $100 payout in BTC will be based on the price of BTC at the time of the payout. The bonus will be paid on the first business day in August, 2020.
Helaas heb ik zelf al eens BlockFi gebruikt dus kan jammergenoeg zelf niet meedoen. Het is wel zeker een betrouwbare club, wat ze doen is vergelijkbaar met Celsius. o.a. Peter Thiel (medeoprichter van Paypal en investeerder in Facebook) heeft er onlangs nog miljoenen in gestoken.
Als je USDC wilt kopen raad ik aan om het via de Crypto.com app te doen, want ze rekenen daar tot eind juni geen kosten bij het kopen van crypto met een creditcard. Het aanmeldproces is ook vrij snel via de app. Zou het op prijs stellen als je je via mijn linkje wilt aanmelden: https://platinum.crypto.com/sxzbhwuqje

PayPal and Venmo May Add Cryptocurrency Support

The well-known and respected PayPal payment system and its Venmo mobile payment service are likely to provide the ability to buy and sell various tokens with their system tools. This innovation is expected in the next quarter.

What happened

CoinDesk talked to an unnamed, but in their opinion, reliable source. They said PayPal would add functions that will allow any member of the system to buy, sell, and even store cryptocurrency with. To provide the ability to conduct these operations, the payment system will cooperate with cryptocurrency exchanges. The exact list of these exchanges as well as the list of cryptocurrencies is unknown, but it can likely be Coinbase and Bitstamp.
At the end of 2018, Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the U.S., made available the option of fiat currencies withdrawal to a PayPal account without any fee.
Hunter Horsley, CEO at BitwiseInvest, believes the launch of cryptocurrencies support by PayPal and Venmo in the 3rd or 4th quarters of 2020 is quite real. In addition, he is optimistic and compares impressive PayPal figures with other close companies:

The historical change in PayPal's attitude towards blockchain and cryptocurrencies

In mid-August 2017, Bitcoin outperformed PayPal in market capitalization for the first time. At the beginning of 2018, PayPal CEO Dan Schulman declared that Bitcoin is not an effective way to transfer value. Therefore, PayPal does not intend to support Bitcoin as a payment tool on its site. At least until the moment of widespread distribution of cryptocurrencies. At the same time, he paid tribute to the blockchain: he did not exclude the use of distributed registry technology in a number of areas PayPal deals with: from real estate contracts to financial services.
In spring 2019, PayPal mentioned it had already tested the possibility for merchants to accept Bitcoin for payment, but so far the company is extremely wary of this and continues to study it.
It is noteworthy that the founder of PayPal Peter Thiel conducts active venture activities in the cryptocurrency sector. This refers to assistance to the Blockfolio project and the Harbor startup from the Founders Fund, where he is the main partner.
In spring 2020, the company placed the vacancy of a blockchain expert who would counteract financial crimes. Also, PayPal is searching for a blockchain developer for the company's research department and a technical director for crypto development.
Also, in spring 2020, PayPal CTO Sri Shivananda shared an opinion that for the success of cryptocurrencies, people must clearly understand their advantages. The client, he said, will be followed by business.
All the above-mentioned makes it possible to believe PayPal will start operations with cryptocurrencies by the fall or the end of the year.

$10 free in BTC at BlockFi (similar to Celsius)

BlockFi is one of the most well-known crypto lending platforms. It works similar to Celsius: they offer loans in fiat currencies backed by crypto, but you can also earn interest on your (stable)coins.
The company is backed by Peter Thiel, who is one of the founders of PayPal and one of the first investors in Facebook. So, BlockFi is definitely a legit company :)
If you sign up through their referral programme you get $10 free in Bitcoin if you deposit and hold $100 worth of crypto in your BlockFi account during 30 days. This can also be done using a stablecoin (USDC or GUSD), so this way you have no risk of crypto decreasing in value.
Steps:
  1. Sign-up through this link: https://blockfi.com/?ref=deafb869 non-ref link without bonus: https://blockfi.com
  2. Verify your account
  3. Deposit at least $100 worth of crypto into your BlockFi account. I recommend using the stablecoin USDC if you don't want to be exposed to crypto price fluctuation.
  4. You will receive the $10 bonus BTC after holding your deposit for 30 days on the nearest Interest Payment Day, which is the first day of the month.
  5. BlockFi allows one free crypto withdrawal per month and one free stablecoin withdrawal per month (see here, bottom of the page), so you can withdraw both your stablecoin and your free BTC without paying any fees.

BlockFi halving actie: $100 gratis bij storten van $200 in crypto

BlockFi heeft nu een nog betere actie dan hun net gestarte referral programma: $100 gratis in BTC als je $200 in cryptocurrency stort en laat staan tot eind juli. Stort in stablecoins (USDC) zodat je geen risico op koersfluctuaties hebt!
Zie hier: https://try.blockfi.com/bitcoin-halving-promo/
Promotional terms: Offer valid until 23:59:59 UTC on May 14, 2020. To be eligible for the promotion, you must have a balance of $0 on May 10, 2020, this must be your first ever deposit in the BlockFi Interest Account, and you must maintain a $200+ balance through 23:59:59 UTC on July 30, 2020. The $100 payout in BTC will be based on the price of BTC at the time of the payout. The bonus will be paid on the first business day in August, 2020.
Helaas heb ik zelf al eens BlockFi gebruikt dus kan jammergenoeg zelf niet meedoen. Het is wel zeker een betrouwbare club, wat ze doen is vergelijkbaar met Celsius. o.a. Peter Thiel (medeoprichter van Paypal en investeerder in Facebook) heeft er onlangs nog miljoenen in gestoken.
