OKCoin Exchange Launches in US Offering Fiat-to-Crypto Trading

Cryptocurrency exchange OKCoin has launched a branch in the U.S. market offering trading services between U.S. dollars and several major cryptocurrencies.

According to OKCoin's website on Friday, the exchange has already launched the new offering and is now accepting U.S. dollars deposits and withdrawals, as well as trading against bitcoin, bitcoin cash, litecoin, ethereum and ethereum classic.

For the new offshoot, the company filed a money service business (MSB) registration with the U.S. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) in November 2017. The document shows that the legal entity behind the exchange is called OKCoin USA Inc. and is based in Mountain View, California.

However, OKCoin states on its website that the fiat-to-crypto trading service is currently limited to investors in California – a limitation indicated in the initial MSB filing.

The news follows a report weeks ago revealing a similar move by Huobi, which launched a purely crypto-to-crypto trading service this month for all 50 states in the U.S. through a partner entity dubbed HBUS.

Earlier this year, HBUS also filed an MSB registration with FinCEN. However, Li Lin, co-founder and chief executive of Huobi, noted at the time that registering with FinCEN does not resolve all of the possible regulatory issues that come with operating within the U.S.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, both OKCoin and Huobi were once two of the three major crypto exchanges in China before the notable trading ban issued by the People's Bank of China in September 2017.

Following the regulatory clampdown, the exchanges shifted their businesses overseas with a focus largely on crypto-to-crypto trading.

«Every crypto exchange in Iran [has been] filtered since May.»

That's how one Iranian bitcoin advocate, speaking on condition of anonymity, described a new wave of government censorship that has cut Iranians off from vital links to the crypto economy ahead of a scheduled renewal of U.S. sanctions in August and November.

Several Iranians exclusively told CoinDesk they are having trouble accessing crypto exchanges like Binance, Blockchain and LocalBitcoins, even with virtual private networks (VPNs) and other workarounds that were already commonplace because of international sanctions.

Huobi's New Voting Rules Anger Crypto Fund 'Supernodes'

A change to the rules for voting on new token listings has caused a backlash against Huobi's HADAX cryptocurrency exchange platform.

On Friday of last week, Huobi published an update – «HADAX Super Nodes and Voting Rules Updates and Subsequent Arrangements» – which outlined that, henceforth, HADAX will rely on two separate groups of funds to help with deciding on new listings.

The company introduced the idea of «Standing Nodes,» for which the HADAX platform will invite 14 large, traditional venture capital firms to join, such as ZhenFund, FBG, Unity Ventures, and Draper Dragon.

Thai Securities Firms to Team Up for Crypto Exchange Launch

A group of traditional securities firms in Thailand is planning to jointly launch a new cryptocurrency exchange, a report indicates.

According to the Bangkok Post on Monday, the Association of Securities Companies (ACE) – a body that represents the country's securities firms – said it is in talks with regulators about allowing established financial firms to offer crypto exchange services.

Furthermore, the association's chairwoman, Pattera Dilokrungthirapop, said in the article that at least several securities companies are filing a registration application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as preparation for the launch of a crypto exchange.

Dilokrungthirapop explained that, since traditional financial companies need to incorporate new systems to protect investors' assets, and keep those assets separate from their own, they may be better off uniting to build a single platform to «reduce operating costs and collaborate on sharing innovative technology.»

ACE said the move comes at a time when its member companies have shown increasing interest in stepping into crypto-related businesses, such as offering trading and facilitating initial coin offerings.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, Thailand passed a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies in May, which is now pending publication in the country's Royal Gazette before becoming law.

Under the new rules, any entity that conducts crypto exchange transactions or initial coin offerings in Thailand must be registered and approved by the SEC.

Coinbase's New Custody Service Is Now Live

Coinbase's institutional product has begun accepting deposits, the exchange announced Monday.

Coinbase Custody, aimed at institutional hedge funds and other clients who can deposit a minimum of $10 million, accepted its first deposit last week, the company announced on Twitter. Now, the new service is live for all customers.

The exchange currently holds more than $20 billion in crypto assets, it also said Monday — a number the company hopes Custody will help raise by another $10 billion.

First announced in November 2017, Coinbase Custody's clients will pay $100,000 as a set-up fee and a 10 basis point fee-per-month on the assets being held, as previously reported by CoinDesk.

The product was formally launched in May, when the firm further explained its plans to work with a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission-regulated broker-dealer. The exchange went one step further earlier last month, when it announced it was in the process of acquiring a broker-dealer license, an alternative trading system license and an investment advisor license.

Should the licenses be approved, Coinbase will be able to begin offering securities on top of its current products.

At present, Coinbase Custody is open to clients in the U.S. and Europe. While no firm timeline was announced, the exchange said it hopes to open up to clients in Asia by the end of 2018.

What Does Crypto Care if Zooko Is a Millionaire?

2,033 ZEC.

That's how much Zooko Wilcox, CEO of the Zcash Company, earns per month from the $650 million zcash cryptocurrency network he helped create. Worth $305,000, or $3.65 million annually, the details of his salary, revealed by Wilcox in a presentation at Zcon0 Tuesday, have sparked somewhat of a scandal on social media.

«I really did this whole 'starting a cryptocurrency' thing wrong, didn't I?» Jackson Palmer, founder of $260 million cryptocurrency dogecoin, tweeted.

It's a notable critique, as in the past few weeks, an independent zcash wallet developer went so far as to threaten to «rage quit» and split the blockchain in the absence of further funding from the community. Central to his issue was the lack of monetary contributions he was receiving for his work, which as the response indicates, was necessary for the safety of the network.

Coinbase CEO Unveils Crypto Charity for the Unbanked

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong wants to help unbanked individuals around the world gain access to financial services.

On Wednesday, the exchange's co-founder announced he was launching a nonprofit organization to financially empower people and donate cryptocurrency to the unbanked worldwide. aims to partner with other nonprofit entities to find potential recipients who could benefit from these cryptocurrency donations.

In a release, Armstrong wrote that «most people I respect and know in the crypto ecosystem believe we have a moral responsibility to shepherd this technology forward in a way that allows it to reach its full potential.» He cited lower fees, reduced transaction times, micropayments and mobile device-friendly payment systems as some of the advantages for blockchain technology.

He wrote:

«Many who invested early in cryptocurrencies understood it could make the financial system more efficient, lower fees, and reduce transaction times. Early adopters saw the potential to unlock widespread innovation if the internet had a native currency. And almost everyone I met in the community early on believed cryptocurrency could finally bank the unbanked of the world—the billions of people who are locked out of the financial system and trapped in poverty as a result.»
The nonprofit aims to raise $10 million by the end of 2018 and increase its funding to $1 billion within the next two years, he said. He plans for the organization to «give away less than the amount that the fund grows each year,» ensuring its longevity.

Initial recipients will live in «emerging markets who are going through financial crisis,» Armstrong said.
