Chicago, Illinois–(Newsfile Corp. – May 9, 2023) – I-ON Digital (OTC Pink: IONI) is proud to announce that it is now in beta development of its next-generation gold digitization and securitization ecosystem due to a technology partnership with Instruxi Ltd. and Space and Time Labs, Inc.

The beta platform is currently under development and is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2023. When launched, I-ON will enable claim holders to digitize and monetize their claims while allowing institutional investors to purchase the value of those claims via digital tokens backed by a pool of in situ (in the ground), unrefined, and physical gold. The system will also provide users with real-time pricing data and reporting, ensuring secure and transparent market transactions.

The method and system for tokenizing gold claims and unrefined gold tokens enable the monetization of proven gold claims without the capital expense and environmental impact of traditional mining. I-ON’s digitization and asset securitization ecosystem will also provide claim holders and junior mining companies with an entirely new way to finance their mining operations and market their gold more transparently and with reduced risk.

“We are excited to be working with the best-in-class technology and innovation of Instruxi and Space and Time on our newest ecosystem,” said I-ON Digital CEO Carlos X. Montoya. “We believe our asset digitization and securitization process will revolutionize the precious metals marketplace by making it easier and safer than ever for investors to buy, sell and trade digital gold securely on our regulatory compliant rails.”

The unique hybrid blockchain technology and innovative protocols revolutionize how unrefined gold is bought, sold, transferred, traded, and hypothecated. I-ON’s ecosystem makes the marketplace more transparent, accessible, and efficient while allowing the gold, subject to I-ON’s perfected lien interest, to be safely stored in institutional vaults or remain in the world’s most secure vault, Mother Earth.

“This project represents a major opportunity for us,” said Instruxi CEO Mathew Harrowing. “By partnering with I-ON Digital Corp, we can leverage our experience building secure and compliant financial blockchain solutions that are both easy-to-use, transparent, and provide superior end-to-end security and reporting for each transaction.”

Space And Time CEO Nate Holiday echoed Harrowing’s sentiment: “This is a revolutionary project that commercializes and will take advantage of all of the incredible capabilities of our Decentralized Data Warehouse platform,” he said. “We look forward to helping build a world-class ecosystem that will transform how people worldwide access investment opportunities in digital gold.”

As a result of I-ON’s ecosystem, a much broader range of investors can now partake in the ownership of gold, fostering economic growth and development in regions where gold reserves are plentiful but difficult to access, mine, and convert into market-ready bullion. Furthermore, the enhanced transparency and security offered by the Company’s regulatory-compliant process increases investor confidence and reduces instances of fraud, benefiting investors and the gold industry.

YOM expands its cloud gaming DePIN from Solana to peaq to run its NFT node sale

Published

yom-expands-its-cloud-gaming-depin-from-solana-to-peaq-to-run-its-nft-node-sale

peaq, the layer-1 blockchain for DePIN and Machine RWAs, announces the expansion of its ecosystem as YOM, the cloud gaming and interactive experience DePIN, unveils its plan to expand to peaq from Solana. YOM enables gamers to earn crypto from their advanced rigs by lending their idle computational power to its DePIN. As the first step toward integrating peaq, YOM will launch its recently-unveiled Genesis Series as the first NFT Node Mint on the peaq blockchain. It will also explore further venues for more collaborations and integrations in the future.

Projected to grow to $312 billion in total revenue by 2027, the video game industry is a powerhouse in the wider entertainment segment, leaving both Hollywood and the music industry far behind. Cloud gaming services, which stream games to the user’s devices such as a smart TV or even a smartphone, are a promising sector in this industry, as they deliver AAA-tier gaming experiences without having to purchase a high-end PC or a console. However, in Web2, such services have to rely on massive data centers, which invokes environmental concerns and further strains the GPU market amid soaring demand from the AI industry. Besides, such data centers are costly to build and operate and often struggle to deliver the content at a comfortable latency.

YOM changes the game by ditching Web2 data centers. Instead, it taps idle personal gaming rigs, leveraging their powerful hardware to remotely run games and interactive experiences and stream them to any devices via their web browsers. The rigs’ owners earn rewards in crypto for every game hour they stream. YOM’s platform currently supports Unreal Engine 5 — one of the industry’s most popular options both among AAA studios and indie developers. The DePIN makes for a more sustainable approach to cloud gaming, with lower hosting costs and low latency, all while enabling gamers to earn revenue from their advanced hardware.

YOM’s strategic integration of peaq will begin with a node sale, where the community will be able to buy YOM’s Genesis Node Licenses as NFTs minted on peaq. The NFTs will be necessary to join YOM’s DePIN as a node. Full details, including the dates and the eligibility criteria, can be found on the YOM site. The mechanism for the node sale will-be open-sourced, enabling other DePINs building on peaq to conduct similar events. After the node sale, YOM is excited to explore more prospective directions for the integration into the peaq ecosystem.

“We are very excited to be working with a Layer-1 chain that has the ability to support us and other DePIN projects on both the ecosystem and technical front,” remarks Jeff Outlaw, CXO at YOM. “Their support frees up the time for our tech team to work on the cloud gaming network. We are working to bring AAA games and immersive experiences to a wider top-of-funnel market as fast as possible, and building with peaq means we can skip a few crucial steps by leveraging its Modular DePIN Functions. All of our focus is now on bringing games to gamers!”

“The gaming industry is a staple of today’s digital entertainment market,” says Leonard Dorlöchter, co-founder of peaq. “Web3 has already tried to take it on with play-to-earn games, but YOM’s approach is a lot more creative — and it truly gives gamers ownership over something they’re so passionate about while earning rewards from their expensive rigs. We are thrilled to see YOM join the peaq ecosystem and look forward to the change it brings about in the gaming world, working as the true Web3 gateway for the mainstream gaming community.”

YOM is the second DePIN to expand to peaq from Solana even before the former’s mainnet launch, which is slated to take place in the coming months. In April this year, MapMetrics, another project originally based on Solana, unveiled its plan to migrate to peaq after the initial announcement of a more limited integration. Also in April, dTelecom, originally building on Arbitrum, announced joining peaq as well.

Binance Cleared to Invest Customer Assets in US Treasury Bills: What It Means for Crypto and Dollar Dominance

Published

on

binance-cleared-to-invest-customer-assets-in-us-treasury-bills:-what-it-means-for-crypto-and-dollar-dominance

Binance has been granted court approval to invest customer funds in US Treasury Bills (T-bills), a move authorized by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. This development signifies a significant intersection between traditional financial instruments and the digital asset sector.

Court Approval and Investment Details

On July 19, 2024, the court permitted Binance to use customer funds, currently held with BitGo, for purchasing US Treasury Bills. The order mandates that these investments be managed by a third-party investment manager. Importantly, the funds cannot be reinvested into Binance or its affiliates, ensuring transparency and mitigating conflicts of interest.

Binance is also required to provide detailed reports on the costs associated with managing these T-bill investments, which will be included in its monthly business expense disclosures, enhancing both accountability and regulatory compliance.

Implications for the Crypto Industry

This court decision illustrates a growing convergence between the cryptocurrency and traditional financial markets. By investing in US Treasury Bills, Binance not only diversifies its asset management approach but also contributes to stability and credibility in the financial sector.

From a regulatory standpoint, this approval establishes a precedent for how digital asset exchanges can responsibly manage and utilize customer funds, aligning with traditional financial practices while addressing the unique challenges of the cryptocurrency space.

Stable Coins and Dollar Dominanc

The ruling also draws a parallel to stable coins, especially those pegged to the US dollar, such as Tether (USDT). Stable coins act as a bridge between traditional fiat currencies and cryptocurrencies, providing stability and liquidity in a volatile market.

Tether, for instance, holds substantial amounts of US Treasuries as part of its overcollateralization strategy to ensure that each USDT token remains pegged to the US dollar. This practice supports the global dominance of the dollar and mitigates risks associated with inflation and fiscal policies.

Global Financial Impact

In the context of global finance, both stable coins and US Treasury Bill investments reinforce the US dollar’s position amid challenges like de-dollarization by emerging markets. By holding US debt instruments, stable coins help manage inflation risks and support the dollar’s role in international trade and finance.

Former US Speaker Paul Ryan has noted the role of stable coins in sustaining demand for US dollars and government securities, contributing to economic stability and supporting the value of dollar-pegged stable coins.

Diverse Views on Stable Coins

Despite their benefits, stable coins face varied opinions within the financial and crypto communities. Critics like Alex Gladstein of the Human Rights Foundation argue that stable coins perpetuate the fiat-centric system that decentralized cryptocurrencies aimed to disrupt. Gladstein advocates for alternative digital assets that promote financial inclusion and economic freedom, challenging the dominance of stable coins tied to traditional fiat currencies.

Binance’s court-approved investment in US Treasury Bills marks a significant step toward integrating traditional financial instruments with the digital asset landscape. This decision not only enhances Binance’s transparency and regulatory compliance but also underscores the increasing legitimacy of cryptocurrencies in mainstream finance.

The synergy between stable coins and US Treasury investments further highlights their role in sustaining dollar dominance and addressing global economic uncertainties. As regulatory frameworks evolve and market dynamics shift, the interplay between cryptocurrencies and traditional finance will continue to shape the future of global monetary systems.
