Binance and Kraken May Be Operating Unlawfully in New York 2010

New York State Attorney General Barbara Underwood has referred three major cryptocurrency exchanges to the state’s Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) for potential violation of New York’s virtual currency regulations. The exchanges referred are Binance, Gate.io and Kraken. This was revealed in the Virtual Markets Integrity Initiative Report released earlier today by the Office of the New York State Attorney General (OAG).

The report details the concerns initially raised by the OAG about the operations of cryptocurrency exchange platforms, especially regarding security, internal controls, market surveillance protocols, and other relevant consumer and investor protections.

Following the letter, Kraken CEO Jeff Powell responded with strong words, stating that the OAG’s demands showed “disrespect” and “entitlement,” and that the letter showed Kraken made the right call to “get the hell out of New York three years ago.” According to the OAG report, Binance, Huobi, and Gate.io also declined to participate in the initiative, stating that they do not allow trading from New York.

Per the report, the OAG then investigated whether in actual fact these platforms accept no trades from New York State, and based on the results of the investigation, it made the recommendation to forward Kraken, Binance, and Gate.io to the Department of Financial Services for a thorough investigation on possible flouting of the state’s virtual currency laws.

In the document, the OAG bemoans the lack of regulation and supervision within the crypto exchange ecosystem, singling out Kraken for its “alarming” response to the initial letter.

An excerpt from the report reads:

“The OAG could not review the practices and procedures of non-participating platforms (Binance, Gate.io, Huobi, and Kraken) concerning manipulative or abusive trading. However, the Kraken platform’s public response is alarming. In announcing the company’s decision not to participate in the Initiative, Kraken declared that market manipulation “doesn’t matter to most crypto traders,” even while admitting that “scams are rampant” in the industry.”

In another significant move, the report also issued a direct warning to customers trading on the four non-participating exchanges, stating that the platforms may have received payment in exchange for listing digital assets, which should inform customers’ decisions to interact with them in any way.

Fund Your Gnosis Pay Card Using Bitcoin 6488

The Kinetex team is thrilled to announce its integration with Gnosis Pay, the world’s first on-chain self-custodial account that connects the traditional payment rails to Web3 rails.

This collaboration provides a straightforward and fast way to top up balances from Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other EVM-compatible tokens by swapping them to EURe via Kinetex’s Flash Trade. It enables users to fund the Gnosis Pay account seamlessly and, in turn, be able to spend their on-chain assets at any Visa merchant worldwide.

Kinetex’s Flash Trade is an intent-based trading protocol that leverages the power of ZK technology to ensure a seamless cross-chain trading experience. One of the most revolutionary features of Kinetex is its support for Bitcoin. By introducing BTCX, a ZK light client built with Succinct Labs’ infrastructure for programmable truth specifically for Bitcoin, the team was able to connect the first cryptocurrency to the ever-growing DeFi ecosystem.

Swapping via Flash Trade is instant, secure, and cost-effective thanks to the advanced ZK technology. This technology enables users to carry out transactions without the need for intermediaries, centralized validators, or complex smart contracts. The process is streamlined by implementing an intent-based approach that connects traders and market makers, making the latter responsible for ensuring liquidity, fast execution times, and low costs.

The integration between Kinetex and Gnosis Pay is set to change how crypto owners can use their assets, empowering them to spend crypto funds in their everyday lives. Together, Kinetex and Gnosis Pay contribute to accelerating both the mainstream adoption of crypto as a means of payment and the maturing of the DeFi industry.

About Kinetex

The integration of Bitcoin into the DeFi ecosystem marks a monumental development for the cryptocurrency industry. As the pioneer and most valuable cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has long been seen as a store of value. However, with the rise of DeFi, Bitcoin’s potential for use in financial applications has soared. In this transformative landscape, Kinetex is leading the way, expanding Bitcoin’s use cases and acting as a bridge between orthodox finance and the new world of DeFi, thus unlocking its full potential.

Contributors to Kinetex Network are actively working on broadening the list of supported networks. Their goal is to encompass over a dozen networks, including popular L1 ones like Bitcoin, Solana, Aptos, Sui, BounceBit, and Berachain. They are also in the process of connecting various L2 Ethereum networks, including ZkSync, Linea, Base, Scroll, and Blast. As for L2 Bitcoin networks, Merlin, Rootstock, Bitlayer, and others will be integrated soon. By increasing the number of networks users can access, Kinetex is breaking down the barriers between different chains, uniting the blockchain ecosystem and thereby significantly enhancing the global crypto user experience.

EthosX Launches New Perpetual Options Product 6497

EthosX is excited to announce the launch of its new Perpetual Options product being launched in partnership with kanalabs.io on their front end. Called OPerps, it aims to be one of the most accessible and efficient ways to enhance returns by using knowledge about short-term market events.

The product aims to help users leverage their market predictions to generate consistent income and maximize returns.

OPerps is a decentralized platform for short-term options trading. It harnesses the power of blockchain technology to enable efficient and transparent options trading, which happens via a user-friendly interface designed to empower those new to derivatives.

OPerps lets users trade tokenized (ERC-20) options that never expire but settle every few minutes/hours. These perpetual options solve the problem of cascading liquidations found in traditional perpetual futures.

Furthermore, offering them in a decentralized, tokenized format allows for continuous trading opportunities while enhancing security and flexibility on the platform.

OPerps Opportunities

OPerps aims to maximize the trading potential of investors by giving them opportunities to profit from sudden market movements. This can happen through two avenues; Long Call OPerps and Long Put OPerps.

Investors can engage in trading Long Call and Long Put OPerps to capitalize on market movements. Long Call OPerps profit from rising markets, while Long Put OPerps benefit from downtrends. Conversely, Short OPerps allow users to potentially earn premiums from Long OPerps token holders, with Short Call OPerps profiting in falling markets and Short Put OPerps in rising markets.

OPerps live options positions aren’t restricted to the platform. A live options transfer feature allows users to move their live option positions to other wallets and protocols for added convenience.

As part of the trading experience, the new platform gives users more leverage and APY choices. Traders can choose between high leverage (up to 1000x on BTC/ETH) or high APYs (triple-digit returns).

OPerps includes features to limit losses and avoid sudden liquidations, providing a safer trading environment.

OPerps is a rare innovation in the history of capital markets that leverages the structure of decentralized finance (DeFi) to give traders the ability to transfer live options positions to anyone anywhere in the market. The platform offers different operational modes: Normal mode on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and DEGEN mode on Arbitrum for varied trading experiences.

OPerps uses data from the Pyth network for prices of options underlyings (BTC & ETH for now). Pyth’s real-time data feed makes the Degen mode possible.

About EthosX

EthosX is a protocol for trading high-value vanilla/exotic derivatives without going through banks, brokers, and other intermediaries. It provides a platform for investors to trade directly with one another with minimal counterparty and minimize settlement risks.

The platform is designed from both crypto and traditional asset classes. But whether a user is trading cryptocurrency options or TradFi derivatives, clearing and settlement are done in an automated and decentralized smart contract-based clearinghouse for capital-efficient trading.

Meet TON-Margined trading at Storm Trade 8063

Storm Trade is the first decentralised derivatives trading platform on Telegram, built on the TON blockchain and allowing trading with leverage up to x50. Keeping up with the times and providing all the best technologies to its users, Storm is releasing a major update – TON-Margin, which will change the way you trade!

What is TON-Margin?

Many perpetual platforms, including Storm Trade, typically trade in stablecoins. However, TON-Margin opens the door to trading using TON as collateral. This gives traders more flexibility, variety and the ability to profit from even small price changes. And of course it brings the TON blockchain closer to true mass-adoption.

Since January 2024, 2 trading pairs to TON have been available on Storm Trade: TON/USD-CM and 1mNOT-F/TON, which showed great popularity among the exchange’s traders. Today, 10 trading pairs to TON are available on Storm Trade, and TON/USD-CM remains the most popular of them.

TON-M provides new opportunities, combining both risks and benefits. The main advantages of futures with TON to provide are:

  • Choice of asset to trade and expanded trading opportunities,
  • The ability to trade without selling TON for stablecoins,
  • Non-linear payout structure and increased profits even on small price movements,
  • Hedging of risk even in a falling market.

The main disadvantage of futures with TON in collateral is the rapid reduction of collateral when volatility is high.

The emergence of TON as collateral and the opening of new trading pairs is a great event for the entire TON ecosystem because it opens up almost limitless earning opportunities for holders, stakers and TON traders.

TON-Margined futures are an excellent tool for increasing trading income, protecting against losses in a falling market and diversifying your trading strategies. Trading only TON, on the TON blockchain, and using TON as a commission payment, on par with listing Notcoin on major exchanges, makes TON fully ready for the wave of new users that should inevitably happen in the near future.

Don’t forget about risk management, trade with an amount of funds that is convenient for you, learn new things and expand your trading experience with Storm Trade!
