Tether Partly Backed by Bitcoin, Court Transcription Reveals

Tether And Bitcoin

Tether, a stablecoin tied to the dollar that is meant to mediate the volatility of other cryptocurrencies, is partly backed by bitcoin.

As detailed in court documents obtained by The Block, Tether admitted to using some of the cash reserves meant to back its stablecoin to purchase bitcoin, among other assets.

This revelation is the latest in legal proceedings between the New York Attorney General (NYAG) and Bitfinex, a leading cryptocurrency exchange which shares management with Tether. Bitfinex and the NYAG have gone back and forth in a battle of legal letters after the NYAG petitioned the New York Supreme Court to stop the exchange from drawing on a $900 million line of credit it established with Tether to cover $850 million in losses it incurred when its fiduciary relationship with payment processor Crypto Capital went south.

The war of words has offered a rare glimpse into Tether/Bitfinex’s shared business practices, including the revelation that Tether’s reserves are only 74 percent backed following the $850 million loss. Additionally, Bitfinex used Crypto Capital to commingle business and customer funds. Now, Bitfinex’s legal counsel is saying that some of these funds were used to buy bitcoin.

“Tether actually did invest in instruments beyond cash and cash equivalents, including bitcoin,” David Miller, Bitfinex’s attorney, testified, adding that it is a “small amount.”

Presiding Judge Joel M. Cohen responded by saying that, while it “may be a little beyond the issue,” that “Tether sounded to me like sort of the calm in the storm of cryptocurrency trading. And so if Tether is backed by bitcoin, how is that consistent? If some of your assets are in a volatile currency that Tether is supposed to somehow modulate,” then that supports the NYAG’s argument.

The rest of the document outlines an argument for why the NYAG’s injunction has grounds under the Martin Act, an anti-fraud law that gives the NYAG legal leeway to bring action against allegedly fraudulent securities issuers. The NYAG argues that, under the Martin Act, it has jurisdiction to pursue Bitfinex/Tether because neither offered sufficient disclosure to stakeholders (namely, Bitfinex users and tether holders).

But the judge opened up his remarks questioning this legal basis, stating that “it [isn’t] 100 percent clear what the violation [is].”

“The petitioner [NYAG] ... very clearly and correctly said that the Attorney General’s Office is not a regulator, so there is no general mandate in the Martin Act to maintain the financial stability of any given company unless there is a statutory violation to pursue,” Judge Cohen said. “So the petitioner ... has to show why in this particular case instability or failure to have enough coverage in terms of dollars constituted by itself a violation.”

Miller criticized the NYAG as having a “lack of jurisdiction” in the matter, arguing that the attorney general is only going after Bitfinex/Tether because it dislikes bitcoin as an asset. He also argues that Tether made proper disclosures regarding its fractional reserves in a February website update.

The May 16 hearing followed a temporary injunction granted by judge Cohen that would freeze Bitfinex’s line of credit for 90 days, a timeframe Bitfinex/Tether sought to reduce to 45 days.

In the background of the courtroom battle, Bitfinex launched a token sale to the tune of $1 billion to aid fund recovery efforts. The token, LEO, sold out and is currently trading; the $1 billion raised will go to cover some of the $850 million lost to Crypto Capital, with Bitfinex planning to buy back and burn outstanding supply until all tokens are out of circulation.

IRS Commissioner Makes Crypto Tax Clarity a Priority

IRS

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is planning to overhaul its methods for determining the federal taxes due on cryptocurrency payments to improve clarity for taxpayers.

The decision stems from the recent attempt by Minnesota Representative Tom Emmer to pass legislation reforming the way that hard forks and the resultant “forkcoins” are viewed by tax agencies. Joined by members of his “Blockchain Caucus,” Emmer’s initial attempt to pass the bill failed in September 2018 and he has promised to reintroduce a similar bill in May 2019.

On April 11, 2019, Emmer and the Blockchain Caucus sent an open letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig drawing attention to their concerns about forkcoins under the U.S. tax code and raising more general questions about crypto tax reform.

On May 16, 2019, Rettig responded with an open letter to Congressman Emmer, thanking him for his request for more clarity around cryptocurrency taxes.

“I share your belief that taxpayers deserve clarity on basic issues related to the taxation of virtual currency transactions and have made it a priority of the IRS to issue guidance,” Rettig wrote. “Specifically, your letter mentions (1) acceptable methods for calculating cost basis; (2) acceptable methods of cost basis assignment; and (3) tax treatment of forks. We have been considering these issues and intend to publish guidance addressing these and other issues soon.”

As a show of good faith, Rettig also invited Emmer and the members of the Blockchain Caucus to contact him and his office with any questions they may have about the IRS’ future efforts.

Dutch Man Arrested for $111 Million Fake Mining Scheme

News Bit: Netherlands

On March 21, 2019, Dutch news outlet NL Times reported that “Berry van M.,” a 33-year-old Dutch businessman and the operator of now-defunct trading platform Koinz Trading, has been arrested on charges of deceiving investors with a bogus bitcoin mining scheme.

The report claims that van M. was the director of companies that sold “computers for mining Bitcoin” since 2017 and that he “managed the computers in a so-called ‘mining farm.’” He convinced investors that they would receive returns of 0.3 BTC per month. But when the investors did not receive these funds and found that they could not get their hands on the hardware they had invested in, they contacted the police.

In total, the report claims that van M. raised investments totaling about €100 million (approximately $111 million). But instead of using the investments to purchase mining rigs, he used them to bankroll a lavish lifestyle.

“The man spent the money received from investors on all kinds of luxury items like cars, motorbikes, traveling and gambling,” per the report.

Bitcoin OTM in Beijing Lasted Less Than a Week Under Regulatory Pressure

China

This article was originally published by 8btc and written by Lylian Teng.

Bitcoin ATM services in China have once again proved to be hopeless, after the first Bitcoin OTM (OTC Teller Machine) in Beijing was removed shortly after its installation.

As Bitcoin ATMs are gaining traction throughout the world, the first Bitcoin OTM appearing in Beijing seemed like a giant leap forward for the country, who often holds a hostile approach toward bitcoin. However, the machine, which stood in a Beijing courtyard, was taken down within a week.

What Is a Bitcoin OTM?

Different from a Bitcoin ATM, which allows users to buy bitcoin by using cash or debit cards, a BTC OTM acts as a go-between for bitcoin OTC (over-the-counter) transactions. Money paid by the buyer of bitcoin goes directly to the seller’s Alipay or WeChat accounts.

If a trader wants to get some bitcoins via the machine, they need to choose the amount they wish to buy and the machine will provide three offers from different sellers. The trader chooses one and pays via Alipay or WeChat. After that, a card will come out from the machine and the trader needs to scan a QR code on the card and input a password via a BitPay wallet to transfer the bitcoin in.

“Transactions via the machine are free of charge,” said Liu Heming, the founder of the Bitcoin OTM startup. “Our profits come from machine sales.”

Why the Hasty Removal?

The machine, installed in Beijing on May 14, 2019, has already been removed. It seemed that the firm behind the machine has chosen to retreat from mainland China in order to avoid potential policy risks, though it is not illegal to trade and hold bitcoin within the territory.

“For policy reasons, we’ll not install any machines in mainland China,” Liu explained on May 20.

According to Liu, the firm was invited to test the machine there and it was removed after the test run completed that day. Days ago, when the machine was unveiled in Beijing, he stated that “the machine just helps people to buy bitcoin, which is defined as a commodity in the country, and it is not illegal to trade and hold bitcoin.”

This marked a new attempt from crypto firms to facilitate bitcoin transactions in the country, though it turned out to be another failure.

In April 2014, the country’s first Bitcoin ATM was installed in Shanghai at a time when the Chinese yuan dominated global bitcoin trades. The machine has been out of operation following an ICO ban in China.

According to CoinATMRadar, there are currently 4,823 bitcoin ATMs in 77 countries. The U.S. has the highest number of crypto ATMs, with 3,030, or 62.8 percent of the world’s total, followed by Canada (696) and Austria (270).

Bitcoin Businesses Push Back Against Proposed Canadian Crypto Regulatory Framework

Canada Coins

On May 16, 2019, San Francisco-based crypto exchange Kraken posted on Twitter a summary of its response to the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) “Proposed Framework for Crypto-Asset Trading Platforms”:

“Kraken strongly recommends against Canada imposing a security law framework on cryptocurrency exchanges in public response to the Proposed Framework for Crypto-Asset Trading Platforms published by the CSA,” Kraken wrote.

Jonathan Hamel, a Bitcoin technology consultant with the Montreal Economic Institute and founder of Académie Bitcoin, told Bitcoin Magazine that, in his view, the proposed security framework is a clear attempt to regulate Bitcoin and bring it under the purview of the CSA.

“Canadian Regulators are wandering outside their jurisdiction when it comes to Bitcoin,” Hamel said. “There are already sufficient safeguards such as KYC/AML imposed on money services businesses by Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC).”

And, beyond any attempt to regulate Bitcoin, Hamel believes that the proposed framework overreaches for other cryptocurrencies as well.

“Let's be clear, this is an obvious regulatory capture attempt in which some crypto businesses are participating to gain market advantages,” he said. “Regarding other tokens (ICOs), they should be treated under the existing securities regulation framework. There is no need for additional regulation.”

Bitcoin Is Not a Security

At the heart of many comments on the proposed framework, like the following tweet from Bitcoin entrepreneur Francis Pouliot, is the assertion that bitcoin is not a security and thus has no place under security regulators.

Most (likely all) cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin are already securities in Canada as per existing laws and regulatory guidance.

Bitcoin-only exchanges not affected. Shitcoin exchanges should delist shitcoins if they don't want to comply.

No new law needed indeed. https://t.co/pwK7xMiY0k

— Francis Pouliot 🐂 (@francispouliot_) May 17, 2019

In her submission to the CSA, financial services consultant and Octonomia founder Elisabeth Préfontaine, elaborated on the security status of bitcoin and the definition of a security, including an explanatory list pointing out that bitcoin has never been a security because no monetary capital was raised to develop it, there was no investment of capital from a founder and it has been functional since its inception, among other reasons.

“Bitcoin is not a security, therefore not a securities regulators matter,” Préfontaine told Bitcoin Magazine. “[The CSA] fail to recognize that there are bitcoin-only businesses and their lack of clarity is quite problematic for the bitcoin industry in Canada.”

A Case of Language Mushiness

Both Hamel and Préfontaine told us that there is a problem with the vague language in the proposal.

As the crypto space evolves, language is also evolving and not always with clear meaning and not always in agreed upon ways. For example, do “blockchain” businesses include bitcoin exchanges?

“The orientation of the consultation paper is problematic because it packages everything (including Bitcoin) under the vague notion of ‘crypto-asset’,” said Hamel.

Préfontaine raised the same issue.

“Canadian Securities Regulators are attempting to regulate something before they have properly defined it,” she said. “They are trying to include bitcoin in the securities framework by using vague language and by bundling it with the rest of crypto assets (as one big category).”

Canadian Chamber of Digital Commerce

The new Canadian Chamber of Digital Commerce (CCDC), an affiliate of the U.S. CDC, made a submission to the CSA that took a more middle-of-the-road approach.

The CCDC sees difficulties in regulating crypto enterprises that are not based in Canada, like Kraken, but have a significant number of Canadian users.

The CCDC submission says there should be a balanced regulatory approach so as not to threaten innovation in the space.

“The risk related to an error in regulatory judgement is also high — overregulation will stifle or displace digital asset innovators and investors in Canada, and ineffective regulation and regulation with unintended harmful consequences for industry innovators and investors will also do the same,” per the submission.

Andrei Poliakov, CEO and co-founder of Coinberry Exchange, worked with the CCDC on this feedback.

“My most important concern is making sure that whatever regulations are passed do not stifle the nascent cryptocurrency industry in Canada,” Poliakov told Bitcoin Magazine. “The cryptocurrency industry is a global one that truly knows no borders. Odious legislation and over-regulation will simply put Canadian business at a disadvantage.”

Outlier Canada CEO Amber D. Scott, a crypto compliance consultant, told us that there are currently laws in place that protect users, but they need to be enforced.

“While effective regulation is important, we also need to consider the laws that are already in place, and how they are enforced (or not enforced),” she said. “For example, fraud is already illegal in Canada, but we have little enforcement — few investigations and even fewer convictions.”

So, what happens now? The CSA can hold roundtables and the initial draft regulations could be released six months after that. It may be that the CSA will proceed to draft regulations without roundtables, which would then have to be resubmitted for comment.

Each province has to approve these new regulations, so it isn’t likely that anything will be published into law in the near future.

NOTE: The security regulations consultation process was undertaken jointly by the Canadian Securities Administrators and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC).

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Strong Selling With Weekly Level Getting Tested

Price Analysis Video.jpg

Summary:

  1. The market is seeing a current rejection of the weekly level outlined in 2018’s bull market. The zone between $8,300 and $8,400 has a strong point of interest in the previous bear market and we are currently seeing high levels of supply surface as people take profit.
  2. If we fail to break the $8,400 level, we can expect to see a retest of $7,400 and potentially even a deeper dive into the $6,800s as this represents another macro, weekly level and has yet to see a very strong test of demand.
  3. The overall market structure is incredibly bullish on high time frames, but the immediate market structure on the four-hour and hourly candles could see some volatility as weaker hands get shaken from their positions.

Bisq’s Lead Developer Makes Way for DAO to Take Over

Bisq

The founder of decentralized crypto exchange Bisq has stepped away from all roles and activities, allowing the exchange’s DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) to oversee its operations.

Manfred Karrer released the departure announcement on Bisq’s official site on May 16, 2019, claiming that the exchange is “entering a new phase” and that the DAO “is now the infrastructure which enables that Bisq is managed by its stakeholders and contributors.” Noting that Satoshi’s departure from involvement in Bitcoin was critical to that project’s success, Karrer stated that Bisq will now be entirely autonomous.

Plans for the DAO to take over have always been central to Bisq and it seems that the exchange has been progressing toward that goal steadily. The first iteration of the DAO went live in April 2019 in a software update as an attempt to decentralize Bisq’s management. Using colored bitcoin, the DAO will give users voting rights and allow contributors to be compensated for their work.

Sure enough, April saw a full release of the DAO, which contributors claimed “was intended to be a part of Bisq from the day it was first conceived in 2014.” Less than a full month later, this latest announcement marks new progress for the DAO. Karrer claimed that he planned to make a clean break from Bisq’s operation earlier but was delayed by a handful of chargeback scam attempts. Citing the potential for burnout that such hands-on maintenance requires, he has now stepped down from all nontrivial administrative duties.

The announcement concluded with a list of some of Bisq’s accomplishments to date and a list of plans for future development. The latter includes anti-fraud protections, off-chain trading, SegWit and hardware wallet support and more.
