CES 2022: CoolBitX Unveils New CoolWallet Pro NFT features for Pioneering DeFi Hardware Wallet at TTA Pavilion

Published

on

 

Crypto security pioneer CoolbitX has announced that it is debuting at CES 2022 the new in-app integrated non-fungible tokens (NFT) functions for its flagship CoolWallet Pro, the leading DeFi-focused mobile cold wallet with a credit card form factor at CES 2022.

The CoolWallet upgrade includes integrated support for the world’s leading NFT marketplaces OpenSea and Rarible and a daring metaverse-focused innovation lab comes in response to the growing evolution of digital assets in 2021, and positions it well for the expected boom in new NFT applications to be used across DeFi, GameFi, Web 3.0 and metaverse protocols in 2022.

CoolWallet Pro Answers Rising Demand for Opensea and Rarible NFTs

Launched in 2016, CoolbitX’s flagship product, CoolWallet allows users to not only safely store an ever-growing portfolio of elite digital assets, but to also interact with an integrated in-app marketplace that provides access to the world’s best decentralized finance protocols and exchanges, and the unique services they provide, such as DeFi staking, borrowing and lending.

NFTs have enjoyed incredible mainstream adoption and pop culture success in 2021, with projects like Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), NBA TopShots, and CryptoPunks generating millions in revenue and aligning with some of the world’s biggest brands such as Nike, Visa and Adidas. There is no question anymore that NFTs serve as a bridge between real-world and digital asset ownership. Practical enterprise applications and use-cases available across a variety of exciting new industries such as metaverse, Play-to-Earn (P2E) and Play-to-Learn (P2L) gaming are widely expected for 2022.

As such, CoolWallet Pro is now offering mobile in-app integrated NFT functions, which features support for leading NFT marketplaces such as OpenSea and Rarible. It not only benefits original CoolWallet users but also serves as an accessible portal to bring new audiences from outside the crypto space to participate in the industry.

“We have been committed to our mission of fostering the mass adoption of crypto assets since 2014, when we began work on the world’s first Bitcoin mobile hardware wallet. NFT support on the CoolWallet will help to seamlessly blend our users’ physical and virtual worlds, empowering them to manage and protect both their crypto assets and digital collectibles with confidence. At the same time, it opens the doors to limitless partnership opportunities with NFT creators and we look forward to many more exciting projects to come,” says Michael Ou, CEO and Founder of CoolBitX.

CoolWallet Pro supports more currencies

CoolWallet Pro users can earn passive income on their DeFi (decentralized finance) assets such as Polkadot (DOT), Cosmos (ATOM), and Tron (TRX), with support for Cardano (ADA), Polygon (MATIC), Solana (SOL), and other leading currencies in the pipeline.

This comes in addition to its existing native support of BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, BCH, ZEN, BNB, DOT, ATOM, TRX, USDT, USDC, and ERC20, BEP20, and TRC20 tokens.

CoolBitX to make NFTs securely accessible to all

In the meantime, CoolBitX is exploring possibilities to attract audiences outside the crypto space through the newly launched “CoolBitX Innovation Lab“. It introduced its first ‘metaverse-like’ project, NAO NFT, which brings together the virtual and physical worlds through an exclusive collaboration with Jinguji Nao, a Japanese adult film actress.

The NAO NFT project includes four special auction items and limited blind box offerings that will be sold through the CoolBitX Innovation Lab project site. Each NAO NFT pack comes with a threefold surprise — an exclusive NFT; a dedicated Nao version CoolWallet Pro hardware wallet, and a possible mystery prize from Nao herself.

For many creators looking to enter the crypto industry, entry barriers are high and also require potential collectors to understand the value of this new form of content creation.

However, CoolWallet’s unique design provides a tangible aspect to the collector, which may be more familiar and hence more viable for mass-market adoption, whilst at the same time safe keeping the consumer’s digital assets and NFT collection.

Legal Luminary Sarah Brennan Champions Pioneering Crypto Regulation Approaches

Published

on

legal-luminary-sarah-brennan-champions-pioneering-crypto-regulation-approaches

Sarah Brennan, an accomplished figure in corporate and securities law, serves as General Counsel at Delphi Ventures, focusing on investments in the Web3 space. With over 14 years of experience in securities law and a deep involvement in digital assets since 2017, Brennan also co-leads LeXpunK, a collective dedicated to establishing legal frameworks for decentralized digital communities.

In a candid interview with a prominent cryptocurrency news outlet, Brennan discussed various critical topics. She addressed the emergence of crypto super PACs, funded significantly by major firms like Ripple and Circle, to counter strict SEC regulations. Brennan viewed the SAB 121 bill, backed by the US administration, as potentially isolating the crypto community from broader financial integration.

While acknowledging the influence of centralized entities in advocating for crypto interests, Brennan cautioned against replicating traditional financial hierarchies within the crypto sphere, which contradicts its revolutionary ethos. She expressed concerns about monopolistic scenarios that could dominate the crypto landscape, exerting excessive control over essential industry components and traditional financial operations.

Regarding regulatory challenges, Brennan advocated for tailored regulations to manage systemic risks posed by large centralized crypto institutions. She criticized the current regulatory opacity and inconsistency, which she believes have fostered suboptimal business practices. Through LeXpunK, Brennan endeavors to pioneer experimental legal structures that could redefine regulatory compliance for token issuances, though reception from policymakers has been lukewarm.

Looking ahead, Brennan emphasizes the need for proactive regulatory approaches using antitrust measures to prevent crypto monopolies, promote decentralization, and target bad actors. However, she highlighted the persistent communication gap between crypto-literate legal advocates and hesitant regulators as a significant obstacle.

Brennan continues to drive forward her mission through new advocacy platforms aimed at shaping the future of cryptographic regulation, navigating complexities to ensure balanced and effective regulatory frameworks in the evolving crypto landscape.

Italy Ramps Up Crypto Oversight in Line with MiCA

Published

on

italy-ramps-up-crypto-oversight-in-line-with-mica

Italy is preparing to strengthen its oversight of cryptocurrency markets to align with the European Union’s Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulatory framework. This initiative, initially enacted in 2022, aims to impose stricter monitoring of digital asset markets, particularly targeting insider trading and market manipulation. Under the new decree, fines ranging from 5,000 to 5 million euros ($5,400 to $5.4 million) will be imposed based on the severity of violations, reinforcing compliance and market integrity.

For blockchain firms and decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, MiCA presents significant challenges. These entities must decide between fully decentralizing their networks or complying with MiCA’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. Fully decentralized networks are exempt from reporting requirements but risk non-compliance if they employ foundations or intermediaries moderating communities.

Centralized exchanges like Binance are adapting to MiCA by categorizing stablecoins as authorized or unauthorized, aligning with regulatory requirements without delisting these assets from spot markets. Uphold has similarly adjusted by delisting certain stablecoins for compliance purposes.

Despite regulatory pressures, experts are optimistic about stablecoins’ future. Figures like Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, predict stablecoins could represent 10% of the money supply within a decade. They anticipate widespread adoption driven by benefits such as financial inclusion, lower remittance costs, and seamless cross-border commerce via public blockchains.
