With this high barrier to enter the market, it puts a lot of centralization on these mining pools. Most people will simply buy bitcoin and sell when it increases to make passive money, instead of running a miner.


What are your thoughts on the energy consumption ecosystem right now?

The leading cryptocurrency exchange in the United States, Coinbase, has been approved as the very first “pure-play” crypto-related company to become a Visa principal member. Supposedly, this would allow the exchange to further improve its customer experience.

I know Coinbase is a centralized crypto wallet provider and bla bla but here are some facts to consider:
1. Coinbase is the first ever crypto company to manage such approval.
2. Visa manages a market cap worth $466 billion
3. Visa is the largest payment settlement provider in the world based on volume

Do you think it is a great step towards mass adoption? Will it be a positive or a negative?

Latest Bitcoin News / Ripple partnership with bkash? Is it legal?
« Last post by administrator on February 20, 2020, 07:56:30 AM »
Bkash is a payment gateway of one of the reputed bank of Bangladesh, the BRAC bank. Recently they had a partnership with Ripple.
What I have understood, BRAC bank will use Ripple (?) to transfer remittances. If so, aren't they going to use XRP coin? Please confirm, I am a bit confused in this.

If so, I mean if they use XRP in Bangladesh, why not Bitcoin?

Edit- The article refers to partnership with Bank Asia, not BRAC Bank. I can't find link of the BRAC Bank partnership for now.
