Walmart Stable Coin.

Banks Stopped Walmart Bank, 
Now the Retail Giant Hits Back With Crypto.

On August 1, it was discovered that the giant retail corporation Walmart 
has patented plans for a stablecoin that’s backed by U.S. dollars. If released into the wild, the USD-based cryptocurrency would be issued to select Walmart retailers and partners while the patent’s description explains the coin could be used outside of Walmart’s retail scope as well. Walmart’s patent follows Facebook’s recent Libra announcement and the ‘Walmart coin’ specifications are similar to the social media giant’s project as well.


Walmart Files Patent for a Digital Stablecoin Back by USD.
Big-name corporations have been announcing the creation of their very own cryptocurrencies and the news has been a hot subject within the crypto community. It all started on June 18 when Facebook announced the launch of Libra, a stablecoin that will be available in Messenger, Whatsapp and as a standalone app, with the company expecting to launch the product in 2020. However, Facebook’s project riled up politicians and immediately got regulatory pushback from worldwide leaders and threats from U.S. congressional members.
Walmart’s U.S. patent #2019023656
Now Walmart is stepping into the ring to test its own blockchain technology as the company has filed a new digital currency patent that describes a stablecoin backed by USD. Walmart’s coin, if developed, could be easily be tested at its 11,368 hypermarkets, department stores and grocery clubs located in 27 countries. The Walmart coin was created by Robert Cantrell, David Nelms, John O’Brien, and Brian McHale. The patent’s abstract description states:

“[The] method includes: generating one digital currency unit by tying the one digital currency unit to a regular currency; storing information of the one digital currency unit into a block of a blockchain; buying or paying the one digital currency unit.”

“The digital currency may be pegged to the US dollar and available for use only at selected retailers or partners. In other embodiments, the digital currency is available for use anywhere. The digital currency can provide a fee-free, or fee-minimal place to store wealth that can be spent, for example, at retailers and, if needed, easily converted to cash,” Walmarts filing adds.
Walmart Coin Aims to Help Low-Income Households That Find Banking Expensive
A closer look at the filing shows that the Walmart coin concept offers a number of features like “pre-approved biometric (e.g., fingerprint or eye pattern) credit” and could store a user’s transaction history and give loyalty points. Much like Facebook’s Libra, the coin produced by Walmart aims to help low-income families worldwide. “Using a digital currency, low-income households that find banking expensive, may have an alternative way to handle wealth at an institution that can supply the majority of their day-to-day financial and product needs,” the Walmart filing details. “In some embodiments, retailers may be directly to aid organizations for assistance that may be used to provide goods. Retailers may tie into assistance that can provide vehicles or funding for vehicles to get goods to customers when the customers do not have sufficient mobility otherwise,” the patent reveals.


Is Walmart Coin the Corporation’s Second Attempt to Become a Bank?
The news comes years after Walmart attempted to become an industrial loan company (ILC) but got pushback from politicians and regulators. Bankers and anti-Walmart groups forced politicians to pass laws to stop Walmart in its tracks from opening bank branches. Because of the opposition, Walmart’s application filed with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) never gained traction.

Iran Embraces Crypto to Circumvent U.S. Sanctions


The Iran economic commission has approved a cryptocurrency mining regulatory mechanism. This is according to an announcement made by the nation’s Chamber of Commerce. The long-awaited framework is set to be tabled in parliament for formal consent and ratification as a law.




The Iranian government is slowly embracing cryptocurrencies which are now being seen as a viable means to circumvent crippling sanctions imposed by the Trump administration. This is following the U.S. government’s unilateral withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
The U.S. instigated embargo prohibits companies registered within its areas of jurisdiction, countries such as China, and those within the E.U. from dealing with Iranian firms. The United States administration has also pressured international financial networks such as SWIFT to block the country from their systems.
The United States government has demonstrated its intransigence on the matter by slapping some major multi-national companies with sanctions. Zhuhai Zhenrong Limited, a Chinese state-run company is among the latest casualties. This latest development has drawn some bellicose remarks from the Chinese authorities amid escalating tensions. 
Such actions have forced some organizations such as the E-3 nations to develop an independent financial mechanism that connects to the Iranian economy. The system, however, also has its drawbacks.
Dubbed INSTEX, it was jointly developed by Germany, France, and the United Kingdom and was recently proclaimed operational. The U.S. has already threatened to place sanctions on countries involved in the project.  
To solve such issues, Iran is reportedly developing its own cryptocurrency which is said to be backed by gold. According to local news outlet Mehr News, the network is set to be launched soon.
Of course, there are some considerable hurdles to overcome for the country to successfully use cryptocurrencies for trade. As in the Venezuelan situation, a rising inflation could suppress the benefits. Recent statistics estimate the inflation rate in Iran to be around 50 percent.
In many related cases, the general populace tends to use cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin as a store of value and not as a medium of exchange. Lack of technological know-how also slows down adoption. 
That said, however, the Iranian populace is increasingly embracing cryptocurrencies. Subsequently, peer-to-peer platforms such as LocalBitcoins are gaining popularity.
Its crypto mining industry is also taking off due to the abundance of cheap energy resources. Miners from countries such as China are flocking in to take advantage of low energy costs. The electricity consumption price-rate in Iran is currently at about $0.03 per kilowatt-hour.
Iran is looking to regulate the crypto mining sector and have miners contribute to the local economy. A proposal to charge export rates is already being considered. 
Details of the just-approved mining industry framework have yet to be released.

Venezuelan Airport using Bitcoin to Evade US Sanctions.

Venezuelan Airport using Bitcoin 
to Evade US Sanctions.



While the Trump administration continues to tighten its economic grip on nations of the world, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has started to push back by using Bitcoin to circumvent US financial restrictions. 




AIRPORT TAXES PAID IN BITCOIN.

According to reports in local media, Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro has been turning to bitcoin to circumvent US sanctions. The report added that the state has been using an app developed by a subsidiary of a Florida based firm which collects taxes.


The application called ‘Jetman Pay’ collects aeronautical taxes, before converting them into BTC through crypto wallets, and then sending them to other countries such as Russia, China and Bulgaria. The bitcoin is then sent back to Venezuela in USD to close the circle.

The initiative is regulated by the ‘National Superintendence of Cryptoactives’ (SUNACRIP), an agency setup by Maduro to launch the state backed Petro cryptocurrency. The Petro has not been used in this instance because bitcoin is more globally recognized and easier to convert in other countries.

The report added that this method of airport tax collection is only in operation in Caracas but there are plans to expand it to other airports and the port of La Guaira. There are also plans to use the app for refueling in addition to tax settlements.
The Jetman Pay app has been designed to collect tourist and airport taxes from commercial airlines, cargo and private planes. It is now in operation for all flights in and out of Maiquetía International Airport (IAIM).

The Trump administration has slapped sanctions on state oil company PDVSA which means those accounts have been blocked in an effort to cut the cash flow to President Maduro. The Petro was created in order to circumvent this financial blockade but it appears that the government now favors bitcoin instead.



RECORD BTC VOLUMES IN VENEZUELA.


For the people of Venezuela, bitcoin has been the savior against galloping hyperinflation which has crippled the country. Data from peer to peer trading activity tracker, Coin Dance, reveals that the seven days to July 20 were Venezuela’s biggest bitcoin volumes on record.
Users on LocalBitcoins alone generated volumes of over 57 billion Bolivars, this eclipsed the previous all-time high of 49 billion the previous week. Citizens have been flocking to bitcoin as the nation’s escalating inflation has reached a staggering ten million percent.

Everything You Should Know About Bitcoin Address Formats

A wallet address, comprising a string of 26-35 alphanumeric characters, is all it takes to send and receive bitcoin. Any bitcoin address can be used to transfer cryptocurrency to any other address on the network, provided the sender’s wallet software supports that address type. With multiple address formats to choose from, and wallet providers and exchanges only supporting certain address types, it pays to familiarize yourself with the differences.


Address Formats Are the Internet Protocol of Bitcoin.
Just as there are multiple versions of the Internet Protocol, such as IPv4 and IPv6, there are multiple bitcoin address formats. Most of the time, these don’t come into conflict with one another, with transactions zipping seamlessly across the network between custodial and non-custodial wallets. There are three Bitcoin Core address formats to choose from, P2PKH, P2SH, and bech32, with only a handful of service providers supporting all of them. There’s a good chance your preferred wallet or exchange doesn’t support at least one of these formats, with bech32 the likeliest to be omitted.

Learning the pros, cons and quirks of each address format will enable you to choose a compatible bitcoin wallet, exchange or platform. It will also furnish you with a deeper knowledge of Bitcoin’s inner workings, and reveal the trade-offs that come with each format in terms of security, flexibility and functionality.
P2PKH or Legacy Address Format
If your bitcoin address starts with a 1, you’re using a P2PKH or legacy address, for example 1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2. This was Bitcoin’s original address format and it still works faithfully to this day. P2PKH, incidentally, stands for Pay-to-Pubkey Hash i.e pay to a hash of the recipient’s public key. Legacy addresses are not segwit compatible, but you can still send BTC from a P2PKH address to a segwit address without any problems. The average fee when sending from a P2PKH address is likely to be higher than when sending from a segwit address, however, because legacy address transactions are larger in size.


P2SH Address Format.
P2SH addresses are structured similarly to P2PKH, but start with a 3 instead of a 1, for example 3J98t1WpEZ73CNmQviecrnyiWrnqRhWNLy. P2SH, which stands for pay to script hash, enables more elaborate functionality than legacy addresses. The P2SH script function is most commonly used for multisig addresses which can specify, for example, that multiple digital signatures are required to authorize the transaction. This address format is also used to enable non-native segwit transactions using a process known as P2WPKH-in-P2SH. The average person sending and receiving coins doesn’t need to concern themselves with the more complex functionality that the P2SH format can bestow: all that matters is that this address type is widely supported and can be used to send funds to both P2PKH and bech32 addresses.


Bech32 Address Format.
Bech32 addresses look distinctly different from the P2-style addresses. Each one starts with “bc1” and is longer than a legacy or P2SH address on account of this prefix. Bech32 is the native segwit address format, and is supported by the majority of software and hardware wallets, but a minority of exchanges. Ledger and Keepkey wallets currently don’t support bech32, for instance, and while most exchanges enable sending funds to bech32 addresses, they don’t enable users to receive them with this format. At present, less than 1 percent of BTC is stored in bech32 addresses, although this number is increasing slowly.

-While using either or both of the browser you can switch the google search with Pre-Search its better that google search and it can customized to a direct search to many webpage, also pay you 0.25 PRE for each search.



If you thinking this is it, nope, there is more:
