“AMC chairman and CEO Adam Aron revealed the American cinema giant is looking to accept Bitcoin payments for movie tickets in response to customer demand.

American cinema operator AMC Entertainment is aiming to accept Bitcoin (BTC) payments for movie tickets by 2022. 

Speaking during a Monday conference call regarding the firm’s Q2 results announced earlier the same day, AMC chairman and CEO Adam Aron revealed that the cinema chain intends to have the infrastructure ready to accept BTC payments for online movie tickets by the end of 2021. 

While details regarding AMC’s plan to accept Bitcoin are scant, Aron reported strong demand for buying movie tickets with crypto from the firm’s customers.

AMC’s Q2 results showed significant improvements compared to last year, reporting $444 million in revenue compared to Q2 2020’s $18.9 million in revenue. Net losses also declined from $561 million or $5.38 per share to $349 million or $0.71 per share year-over-year. 

Along with adopting BTC payments, AMC also announced plans to open more than a dozen locations across the United States, Europe and the Middle East this year.

The chairman also made the unlikely claim that he had first learned about crypto assets after being elected to the board of Centricus Acquisition on May 6 — one week before Centricus acquired blockchain technology firm Arqit.” Cointelegraph

PETROLEUM COMPANY PLANS TO INSTALL 1 MILLION BITCOIN MINERS

Photo by Tom Fisk on Pexels.com

“Black Rock Petroleum Company Entered Agreement With Optimum Mining Host To Deploy And Operate Up To 1 Million Bitcoin Mining Machines.

Nevada-based Black Rock Petroleum Company has entered into agreement with Optimum Mining Host to deploy and operate up to 1 million Bitcoin mining machines.

The miners would be hosted in Alberta and sourced from China, per a press releasecissued in July but that this week received new attention from the CBC, Canada’s largest public media company. 

Black Rock’s proposed mining operation would span three natural gas producing sites located in Alberta. The first 200,000 machines would be deployed at the Quirk Creek Gas Plant, a recently announced planned acquisition by Black Rock. The firm has planned to allocate 300,000 machines to a second site in Alberta, with the remaining 500,00 allotted to a third site yet to be identified. 

Black Rock CEO Zoltan Nagy commented, “The Quirk Creek property is perfectly situated to service those markets. Current production levels are good, and our engineers have looked at the property’s historical production records and analysed recent reserve evaluations, and we are confident we have the expertise, technology and resources to materially increase production and, in turn, the cash flow of the site and to host and operate bitcoin miners at an energy cost of circa three cents Canadian per KWH.”

The contracted term between Black Rock and Optimum Mining is two years, with the option to extend by 12 months with notice. As the CBC noted, no time line has been established for this deal. The CBC also reported U.S. bitcoin mining engineer Brandon Arvanaghi as saying he was “skeptical” of the “astronomical” number of miners Black Rock is proposing to install. 

Arvanaghi continued, “The logistics of bringing such a large number of mining rigs to rural Alberta would be challenging.”

Indeed, Charles Selby, president of Caledonian Midstream Corporation, commented, “Given our current gas production, a more reasonable number of miners would be 10,000 rather than the 200,000 referenced in the press release.”

Whether they can deliver on this plan, Black Rock’s optimistic projections point to the large outflow of mining machines from China. Many miners are relocating to new stable sources of energy in wake of China’s ban. If Black Rock succeeded in installing and operating 1 million bitcoin miners, it would run the equivalent of one third of the current global mining capacity.” Bitcoin magazine

Singapore : Approves Crypto Exchange

Photo by Kin Pastor on Pexels.com

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has notified several providers of digital payment services that they will be licensed to operate in the city-state. The move, which comes after the approval of a crypto exchange for a license, secures Singapore’s status as Asia’s crypto hub, industry observers say. 

Digital Payment Service Providers to Be Authorized to Operate in Singapore

The central banking authority of Singapore has informed digital payment service providers that it’s going to license them to operate under its jurisdiction. MAS told “several” out of 170 applicants it’s “prepared to grant them payment services licenses,” as long as they implement measures to meet its requirements, the regulator confirmed to South China Morning Post’s ‘This Week in Asia’ edition. Two applications have been rejected so far and another 30 withdrawn for failing to meet anti-money laundering standards.

he news comes after the Australian cryptocurrency exchange Independent Reserve announced earlier this week it had received an “in-principle approval” from Singapore’s monetary authority for a license as a regulated provider of digital payment token services. The trading platform noted in a statement that it’s among the first virtual asset service providers to receive such approval in the city.

The latest MAS announcement has been met with enthusiasm from experts involved in the crypto space, the Hong Kong-based daily pointed out. Grace Chong, a lawyer at Simmons & Simmons and advisor on fintech and regulatory matters in Singapore, described the move as “momentous” and “timely.” Banks and asset managers have been expanding their digital asset offerings, she noted, emphasizing:

MAS Move to Attract Crypto Companies to Asia’s Crypto Hub

According to Chong’s estimates, 90 digital payment token service providers were already operating under exemption in Singapore. In March 2020, MAS granted an exemption from holding a license to a number of crypto companies under its new Payment Services Act, as Bitcoin.com News reported. It published a list of exempted entities, including well-known names such as Binance, Coinbase, Upbit, and Wirex.

MAS’s decision to move towards permanent licensing “gives certainty to many legit crypto companies who have established operations here,” remarked Kenneth Bok, chief executive of blockchain advisory Blocks. Jason Davis, an associate professor of entrepreneurship and family enterprise at Insead, described it as a “careful next step” into financial innovation. Davis expects more crypto exchanges to seek approval to operate in Singapore:

important part of the country’s strategy to be friendly to businesses using new digital types of assets … The exchanges may be only the first step in the development of a thriving crypto-ecosystem in the heart of Southeast Asia”.

Michael Saylor’s MASTERCLASS in Cryptocurrency Investing and the Future of BITCOIN

Michael Saylor’s MASTERCLASS in Cryptocurrency Investing and the Future of BITCOIN

UOTES: “If you look at the design of a chambered Nautilus, what you see is nature’s solution for growth under pressure, and I think that’s how technology companies work.” [8:45] “Bitcoin is the first point in human history where engineering impinged on economics, […] Bitcoin was the first time when we created a digital monetary asset, a pure digital token on a pure digital network..” [21:56] “When you yourself can reason from first principles, now you can act at a moment of tremendous uncertainty.” Tom Bilyeu [23:50] “I have to invest it in a strategy, which is going to appreciate faster than the money is devalued.” [40:07] “So the discount rate is jumping, which means the value of the cash flows into the future is collapsing.” [48:30] “Bitcoin is the strongest asset the human race has ever invented, it’s like gold with none of the defects of goal.” [51:22] “The volatility is the price you pay for the performance that you get, and oftentimes, the best investment idea isn’t the most comfortable investment idea” [1:05:24] “It’s very rare that you find it a technology that’s the solution to every rich person’s problem and every poor person’s problem simultaneously.” [1:20:28] Guest Bio: Mr. Saylor attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on a full Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarship. While at MIT, he was a member of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity, and obtained dual degrees in aeronautics and astronautics as well as science, technology and society. Tom Bilyeu

” BTC Mining Operation .”

“Bitcoin mining is suddenly one of the most profitable businesses on the planet”

“Would you believe that Bitcoin mining generates just as much revenue as the age-old pursuit of unearthing gold and silver ore? Right now, minting this most unorthodox asset may also rank as the most profitable major industry on the planet. The entrepreneurs running their towering racks of rigs 24/7 were garnering stupendous margins when prices surged to over $60,000 in mid-April. Now they’re pocketing even fatter returns at prices that are one-third lower. And we’re talking numbers that for now surpass such famously lucrative enclaves as Big Pharma, luxury goods, and software. ” Fortune

Fidelity Buys 7.4% Of Bitcoin Mining Company Marathon Digital Holdings Across Multiple Funds

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

“On July 22, Fidelity Investments Inc. purchased a 7.4% stake worth approximately $20 million in Marathon Digital Holdings, one of the largest bitcoin mining operations in North America, across four broad index-based funds, Fidelity Extended Market Index Fund (FSMAX), Fidelity Nasdaq Composite Index Fund (FNCFX), Fidelity Total Market Index Fund (FSKAX) and Fidelity Series Total Market Index Fund (FCFMX). Combined they have a market capitalization of $170 billion. Though the percentage in each devoted to Marathon is tiny, many of these index funds are popular in retirement accounts.

The recent purchase exemplifies a growing trend among institutions and individual investors of gaining exposure to the crypto industry through traditional equity or debt securities. Marathon’s stock trades similarly to the price of bitcoin (see chart below),  only its returns have been amplified. So while bitcoin is up 240% in the last year or so, Marathon shares have climbed 660%. So these Fidelity index funds can effectively gain access to the volatile cryptocurrency without actually owning the digital asset directly. It may also mean that many investors in the U.S. and abroad have unwitting exposure to bitcoin and other digital assets in their retirement accounts or investment portfolios. ” Forbes

Memenopoly Integrates Chainlink VRF to Secure Dice Rolls and Randomized NFT Packs

Memenopoly

“We’re excited to announce that Memenopoly — The meme themed yield generating blockchain game — has integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) on the Binance Smart Chain mainnet. By integrating Chainlink’s industry-leading decentralized oracle network, we now have access to a tamper-proof and auditable source of randomness needed to provide fair and transparent game play, as well as randomizing our NFT distribution. Ultimately this creates a more exciting, transparent, and fraud-proof gaming experience for our users and builds trust within the community.

Memenopoly is an evolution in gamified yield generation that combines the best of traditional yield farming, NFT yield farming and unique 3D gameplay to reward players with both instant and passive rewards. With NFTs at the core, players collect and stake properties to earn daily yields and collect rent from other players by rolling at least once a day. With token burns built into the game on a contract level and leveraging the power of Chainlink VRF, we set out to achieve our goal of releasing a transparent, fair and fun experience that pushes the limits of what’s been done so far on the blockchain!”

“In order to ensure each roll is fair and each NFT chosen is truly random, we need access to a secure random number generator (RNG) that any user could independently audit. However, RNG solutions for smart contracts require several security considerations to prevent manipulation and ensure system integrity. For instance, RNG solutions using on-chain data like block hashes can be exploited by blockchain miners, while off-chain RNG solutions like traditional data providers are opaque and don’t provide users with definitive proof about the integrity of the process.

After reviewing various solutions, we selected Chainlink VRF because it’s based on cutting-edge academic research, supported by Chainlink’s time-tested oracle infrastructure, and secured through the generation and on-chain verification of cryptographic proofs that guarantee the integrity of each random number supplied to smart contracts.

Chainlink VRF works by combining block data that is still unknown when the request is made with the oracle node’s pre-committed private key to generate both a random number and a cryptographic proof. The Memenopoly smart contract will only accept the random number input if it has a valid cryptographic proof, and the cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This provides our users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain that Memenopoly is provably fair and cannot be tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Memenopoly team.” Memenopoly

Proof of Work vs. Proof of Stake: Beginner’s Guide!!

Proof of Work vs. Proof of Stake: Beginner’s Guide!! 👨‍🏫 Coin Bureau

What is Proof of Work?

Any computer that wants to process transactions on a proof of work cryptocurrency blockchain like Bitcoin needs to solve a complex equation to earn the right to do so. This costs time and energy to do If this sounds tedious and arbitrary, it’s because it is. This idea of work exists exclusively as a means of protecting a cryptocurrency from manipulation by the computers connected to its blockchain.

What is Proof of Stake? Instead of using large amounts of computing power and energy to solve an equation to process transactions, a cryptocurrency coin is staked i.e. locked on the blockchain to earn the right to do so The length of time a cryptocurrency must be staked to process transactions can vary, as can the minimum amount of coins or tokens a computer must lock up as stake Logically, the more cryptocurrency you stake, the more likely you are to process transactions and create a block PoW: Advantages and Disadvantages In theory, anyone can connect their computer to a proof of work cryptocurrency to process transactions and earn cryptocurrency as a reward for doing so However, over the years companies have developed specialized computers called application specific integrated circuit machines or ASICs for short. This is gradually centralizing PoW cryptocurrencies What’s worse is that when a new and improved ASIC is released, the older model usually ends up in a landfill, and this is one of the many environmental concerns about proof of work cryptocurrency mining PoS: Advantages and Disadvantages.

In theory, anyone can connect their computer to a proof of work cryptocurrency to process transactions and earn cryptocurrency as a reward for doing so This is facilitated by the minimal hardware and energy requirements to participate in most proof of stake cryptocurrency blockchains However, most proof of stake cryptocurrency blockchains have high thresholds when it comes to the minimum stake you need to put down to connect to it as an independent computer Moreover, most proof of stake cryptocurrencies had something called a premine which is where a bunch of coins or tokens are minted in advance and distributed to the team and large investors Consequently, most proof of stake cryptocurrencies are more centralized than Bitcoin and Ethereum since the average user is stuck delegating to a validator or staking pool belonging to the team and VCs Coin Bureau

Crypto Fear & Greed Index

As you can see today we are currently at extreme fear July 16th 2021 on the Crypto Fear & Greed Index

“Why Measure Fear and Greed?

The crypto market behaviour is very emotional. People tend to get greedy when the market is rising which results in FOMO (Fear of missing out). Also, people often sell their coins in irrational reaction of seeing red numbers. With our Fear and Greed Index, we try to save you from your own emotional overreactions. There are two simple assumptions:

  • Extreme fear can be a sign that investors are too worried. That could be a buying opportunity.
  • When Investors are getting too greedy, that means the market is due for a correction.”
