CZ on Paxos’ Fiat Gateway: ‘Fastest, Simplest U.S. Dollar On/Off Ramp’ for Binance Users


CZ on Paxos’ Fiat Gateway: ‘Fastest, Simplest U.S. Dollar On/Off Ramp’ for Binance Users


On Tuesday (November 12), Paxos Trust Company (aka “Paxos”) announced a new Fiat Gateway that “enables a seamless bridge between traditional and digital assets,” and said that Binance is “the first to integrate it.”

Paxos, “a regulated financial institution building infrastructure to enable movement between physical and digital assets,” announced via a press release shared with CryptoGlobe that its new “Fiat Gateway” solution allows easy swaps between dollars and dollar-backed stablecoins. This allows a crypto exchange such as Binance can “use Fiat Gateway to accept dollar deposits and convert them into PAX for use on the platform.”

Another Paxos solution, “Stablecoin Swap”, “enables Paxos-powered stablecoins to be treated as interchangeable with each other, 1:1.” Examples of Paxos-powered fiat-collateralized stablecoins are Paxos Standard (PAX) and Binance USD (BUSD).

Changpeng Zhao (aka “CZ”), Co-Founder and CEO of the first crypto exchange to adopt Paxos’ Fiat Gateway, had this to say:

Paxos is a trusted partner that keeps innovating ways to make traditional and digital assets more interoperable. The new Fiat Gateway is the fastest, simplest U.S. dollar on/off ramp for our customers. We look forward to working more closely with Paxos to integrate additional solutions.

Although these two capabilities have been available for a while for users of the platform, new APIs allow them to be “integrated into other platforms”:

Qualified businesses will be able to use these new tools directly for their own transactions as a first-party, or they can host the solutions as a third-party for their customers to utilize.

Charles Cascarilla, Paxos Co-Founder and CEO, stated:

We created these APIs so our technology can become more widely available and scalable. Our aim is to create financial infrastructure that others can utilize and build on, so together we can create a modern, open financial system.

Web3 Plans to Integrate Kadena’s Smart Contract Language on Polkadot

The Web3 Foundation plans to adopt blockchain startup Kadena’s Pact smart contract programming language for the Polkadot ecosystem.

The two organizations signed an agreement to kick off a research project studying how Pact can be integrated into different blockchain platforms, beginning with Polkadot, Kadena announced on Tuesday at CoinDesk’s Invest: NYC event.

Pact is designed to facilitate smart contract executions among developers that use different blockchains. Kadena hopes the language will become a smart contract standard, regardless of developers’ preferred blockchains.

The firm’s founder Stuart Popejoy unveiled the cross-chain smart contract language in June 2019 for “hybrid blockchains,” both public and private. Kadena claims Pact is one of the first “human-readable” languages to execute smart contracts with Formal Verification, a way of verifying algorithms’ “correctness” using mathematical methods.

Formerly called Chainweb, Kadena’s blockchain platform went live on Nov. 4, weaving together 10 proof-of-work (PoW) blockchains running concurrently. At the same time, the firm also announced a $20 million token sale.

The network tackles scaling challenges on existing PoW networks by running multiple blockchains concurrently, with shared merkle roots allowing for data to be shared across different networks.

Kadane raised $12 million through a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT) sale in April 2018. Fidelity Investments’ private investor arm, Devonshire Investors, Multicoin Capital, Asimov Investments, SV Angel and SIG participated in the token sale

The company’s push to integrate blockchain platforms with a universal smart contract language came on the heels of the Web3 Foundation’s interoperability project that facilitates inclusion of different Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain platforms.

“Web3 Foundation looks forward to the results of Kadena’s forthcoming feasibility study, and learning more about the role the Pact language could play in the Polkadot ecosystem.” Dieter Fishbein, the foundation’s head of grants, said in a statement.

Started by ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood, Polkadot launched its DOT token sale in July with a $1.2 billion valuation at the time. Three unnamed Chinese funds bought a certain portion of tokens with a valuation under $1 billion.

The Web3 Foundation, joined by Polychain Capital, set up a new investment fund to back Polkadot in October. The amount of this backing was not disclosed.

With Code of Conduct, Trade Group ADAM Seeks Legitimacy for Crypto

One year after its formation, the Association of Digital Asset Markets (ADAM) has drafted a code of conduct for the cryptocurrency market.

The trade group has also recruited five more companies, bringing its total membership to 15. The new members are: custodians BitGo and Anchorage, trading firm and VC investor CMT Digital, lender BlockFi, and prime brokerage Tagomi.

Released Tuesday, the draft is part of an ongoing effort by institutionally-focused companies to bring legitimacy to an industry regarded by traditional investors and regulators as a digital Wild West.

“The digital asset industry has had a rocky first decade. Crypto investors have learned all the hard lessons of a century’s worth of financial crime and scandal in the course of ten years,” said Dan Burstein, the general counsel and chief compliance officer at the Paxos exchange, one of the group’s 10 founding members.

“There hasn’t been a lot of transparency,” he added. “Investors don’t always know what’s a reliable place to conduct their trading.”

To rectify that situation, the code sets standards for governance, ethics, transparency, fairness, compliance, risk management, information security and business continuity, as well as preventing conflicts of interest, market manipulation, money laundering and terrorism financing.

For example, the draft says ADAM members should “be truthful in their statements, use clear and unambiguous language, make clear whether the prices they are providing are firm or indicative, and provide to clients and counterparties all material information” about business relationships.

Next, ADAM will circulate the draft to its members for feedback. The group expects them to sign a final version of the code in early 2020.

“As digital asset markets … become ever-more enmeshed in capital markets, it is important … to level the playing field and establish the high standards and operating protocols deserving of this promising and innovative asset class,” said Philippe Bekhazi, CEO of XBTO Group, another ADAM founding member, in a press release.

Does it have teeth?

Although it is not a regulatory document, companies that are found to have violated the code run the risk of being kicked out of the association and losing what ADAM hopes will become a powerful imprimatur in the market.

“Being associated with ADAM is a signal to investors, business partners and regulators that you are making an effort in good faith to live by certain standards,” Burstein told CoinDesk.

ADAM’s is not the first code of conduct for the nascent crypto industry – Global Digital Finance (GDF), a London-based trade group with more than 70 members, released one last year.

That code totals more than 15,000 words, divided into eight separate PDF files. ADAM’s code is comparatively tidy: less than 4,000 words in a single, 12-page document.

Because ADAM’s membership (all US) includes different types of companies with different business models, “we can’t be too prescriptive,” Burstein said. Instead, it took a “higher-level, principles-based approach,” setting general guidance rather than narrow rules.

“The idea is not to tell people what they should be doing at all times,” he said. “We are, after all, in an innovation industry.”

Chainalysis’ ‘Kryptos’ Tool Is an Inside Look for Outside Investors

Chainalysis is building a crypto-space risk data clearinghouse for financial institutions.

Its new Kryptos platform will help institutions parse regulatory hazards and build risk assessment models.

Kryptos “is our step towards financial institutions, so they can have the transparency they need to build risk management programs and integrate into the crypto economy,” Chainalysis co-founder and COO Jonathan Levin said.

It’s the blockchain analysis firm’s first product to specifically target institutional players, joining KYT, the exchange-facing anti money laundering software, and Reactor, which helps investigators trace criminal money flows.

Those products help governments, crypto companies and investigators analyze their sectors of the crypto economy, Levin said. But while those entities grasp the larger crypto ecosystem, crypto-curious investors, including the banks and advisors not already involved, have no clear point of entry.

That could stymie investment. Chainalysis’ solution: build a “trusted and referenced” dataset for new market entrants.

Levin said:

“If you are in a financial institution and trying to understand who the major players are what assets are trading where they are registered, how their activity looks on the blockchain, and how to make sure you’re managing your risk appropriately, you’ll log into Kryptos and see those top counterparties you’ll be wanting to do business with.”

The product, still in beta and set to launch early next year, features a mix of manually-collected data to give them that view. Chainalysis’ employees compile and update reams of regulatory, compliance, and business interest information in one place.

Levin said:

“We find that Kryptos is a good way for someone to get that high level overview, really a good starting point for someone to do a deeper dive investigation.”

That, he claimed, is good for everyone: “All players in the cryptocurrency ecosystem stand to benefit from increased transparency.”

Binance Exchange Is First Client for Paxos’ New Dollar Gateway

Regulated blockchain company Paxos has launched a product allowing crypto exchange customers to more easily fund their accounts with traditional money.

With its new Fiat Gateway service, Paxos said Tuesday that users will be able to execute simple swaps between U.S. dollars and stablecoins, including the firm’s own Paxos Standard (PAX).

Notably, Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, will be the first to integrate the product. The firm will also have its stablecoin, Binance USD (BUSD), included in the swap options.

“Paxos is a trusted partner that keeps innovating ways to make traditional and digital assets more interoperable. The new Fiat Gateway is the fastest, simplest U.S. dollar on/off ramp for our customers. We look forward to working more closely with Paxos to integrate additional solutions,” said ” said Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, Binance’s CEO.

Binance may work with Paxos to integrate additional solutions in future, CZ said, though he didn’t provide any specifics. The exchange has only recently started adding fiat funding options, having launched deposits in rubles, euros and other currencies in recent weeks.

While Paxos’ Fiat Gateway will facilitate swaps between fiat currency and stablecoins, the company announced a second offering called Stablecoin Swap that allows fee-free 1:1 interoperability between Paxos-powered stablecoins.

Both of Paxos’ new services can be integrated into third-party platforms via an application programming interface (API). Previously, these facilities were available only for customers using

“The APIs will help our technology can become more widely available and scalable,” said Charles Cascarilla, Paxos CEO and co-founder.

Notably, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission granted Paxos Trust Company no-action relief in October, allowing it to settle equity securities trades on its blockchain platform for broker-dealers. Credit Suisse and Société Générale would be the first two companies to utilize the service, Paxos announced at the end of last month.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Primed To Extend Losses Below $8.5K

  • Bitcoin price is declining and it is now trading below the $8,800 level against the US Dollar.
  • The price is trading with a bearish angle and it is likely to tumble below $8,600 and $8,500.
  • Today’s key bearish trend line is active with resistance near $8,960 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • A clear break below $8,600 is likely to push the price below $8,500 and $8,450.

Bitcoin price is setting up for another dive below $8,600 against the US Dollar. BTC could even struggle to hold $8,500, considering the current bearish formation.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

In morning, we discussed the chances of more losses and sell opportunities for bitcoin below $9,000 against the US Dollar. BTC remained in a bearish zone and it failed to break the $8,850 resistance area.

Additionally, the price is now trading well below the $8,800 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the price failed to capitalize above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $9,150 high to $8,610 low.

More importantly, the price was rejected near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $9,150 high to $8,610 low. Bitcoin is now trading below the $8,750 level and is following a bearish path.

Recently, there was a break below a contracting triangle with support near $8,730 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, there is a risk of more downsides below the $8,650 and $8,600 levels.

In the mentioned bearish case, there is a risk of a sharp breakdown even below the $8,500 support. On the upside, an initial resistance for the bulls is near the $8,820 level and the 100 hourly SMA.

However, the main resistance is near the $8,850 and $8,950 levels. Besides, today’s key bearish trend line is active with resistance near $8,960 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

If there is a nice upward move above the $8,850 and $8,950 resistance levels, the price may perhaps start a fresh increase towards $9,200 and $9,500 in the coming days.

Bitcoin Price

Looking at the chart, bitcoin is clearly sliding and is trading well below the $8,850 resistance area. Thus, the bears remain in control and any recovery is likely to face resistance near $8,820, $8,850 and $8,950. On the downside, the bulls might be keeping a close eye on the $8,500 zone.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is currently gaining pace in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is currently declining and is trading below the 40 level.

Major Support Levels – $8,600 followed by $8,500.

Major Resistance Levels – $8,820, $8,850 and $8,950.

近半个月以来,矿业有两大利好消息。一是全球三大矿机厂商之一嘉楠耘智赴美上市;二是发改委将“挖矿”移出“淘汰产业”。配合着 10 月底顶层提出的将区块链打造为战略性新兴产业,包括矿业在内的全产业链发展似乎已成为题中之义。




为此,Odaily星球日报依据公开资料,梳理了 20 家 A股上市的“矿业概念股”,希望能帮助投资者辨清,这些公司“涉矿”的方式与深浅。

在这些公司中,我们看到在 2018 年初对涉矿业务信心满满,在熊市中渐渐失声的企业,也有在市场大好的 10 月底匆匆进场的选手;有自 2017 年就传出“涉矿”但之后就没有进展、白蹭了两年概念股的公司,也有自 2016 年就长期为大矿商提供业务支撑的产业伙伴……








去年 6-8 月,比特大陆为冲击港股 IPO 分别进行了 3 轮共计 17 亿美元的融资,智度股份即在此时入股比特大陆。网传其持有比特大陆 1.68% 股权,乐观来看,若其股份没在后续筹资中被稀释、比特大陆的估值也未有下降(仍为去年 8 月投后的 150 亿美元),则智度股份的股票价值已达到 2.52 亿美元。

事实真的如此吗?面对股民的关心,智度股份在深交所互动易平台上回复称,“公司对比特大陆的投资占比相对较小,未达披露标准。“该公司同时表示,因为投资比特大陆,2019 年其还获得了比特大陆联合创始人吴忌寒所创的 Matrixport 的认股权。



10 月 10 日,央行招聘数字货币研究员的消息传出,数字货币板块出现大幅上涨。在今年前九个月中跌幅将近 18% 的智度股份也开始阶梯式爬升,月内 12 度登上深市龙虎榜,股票最高涨幅达 114%。


在深市的 2000 支股票中,每日登上龙虎榜的股票不过 32 支,而智度股份以较高涨幅和换手率霸榜 10 余日,可见资本市场之欢迎。登上龙虎榜的是全市波动最大的股票,多以资金量大、针对性强的机构资金主导。

瀚叶股份(600226)和富通鑫茂 (000836)


2017 年 5 月,在牛市高潮前夕,嘉楠耘智完成了一轮 3 亿美元的 A轮融资,趵朴投资即在出资机构之列。趵朴投资是趵虎投资的执行事务合作人,瀚叶股份通过上海雍棠间接持有趵虎投资 6.83% 的股份,富通鑫茂则通过上海擎佑间接持有趵虎投资 3.41% 的股份。



2018 年 8 月 9 日开始,高升控股连续涨停 6 个交易日,高升控股不得不对波动作出说明。其表示,原因或为《证券时报》在 9 日发布了一篇文章,《嘉楠耘智率先推出 7nm 量产芯片 相关公司受关注》,“文内涉及本公司”。

据公告,高升控股曾在 2017 年 1 月和嘉楠耘智签订了《数据加密前瞻研发合作协议书》,协议双方拟对数据加密在实际应用领域中的需求和存在的问题进行研发和交流。


可以说,高升控股是“签一个框架,蹭两年热点”的典型。在高升控股的“股吧”中,有关“嘉楠耘智”的帖子上个月还有 25 个,但多是股民们自己的发言。


根据官网介绍,该平台已将高升控股提供的 IDC (互联网数据中心)和嘉楠耘智矿机等资源进行整合,可为用户提供云挖矿服务。高升控股官方在 2018 年 3 月答投资者问时也提到(也是唯一一次),相关业务仍在推进过程中。但目前,算力宝的官网(已经无法打开,而高升控股在财报中也未提及和算力宝合作的任何细节。



从上表中还可以,相比于其它矿商,嘉楠耘智与上市公司的往来更加密切,而且自 2017 年即在尝试开拓区块链领域的其它业务。而今更和金固股份成立合资公司(嘉楠持股 49%)亲自上阵,可见其并不满足于矿商、AI芯片公司的范畴;而这些受益股,既能从嘉楠耘智赴美上市中受益、还有区块链概念,一举多得。

但就像很多的区块链技术服务商那样,嘉楠要在该领域中从 0 到 1 建设还需费些时日。





(1)自研 GPU 矿机


卓翼科技自身是小米、华为的代工厂,主营业务包含网络通讯类、消费电子类和智能硬件类三种产品。2015 年开始,卓翼科技开始作为迅雷 ODM(原始设计制造商),为后者研发生产共享 CDN(共享带宽和存储)产品,包括迅雷在 2017 年推出的加了代币激励的“玩客云”。


言归正传,2017 年-2018 年初的牛市高潮时,卓翼科技也曾觊觎过用于挖以太坊等币种的 GPU 矿机。

卓翼科技曾在互动易上表示,“公司在 2017 年初开发了多 GPU 高性能并行计算系统,主要用于 AI 和区块链哈希运算(俗称挖矿),已完成试制、可以量产。同时也自主研发了 17 卡 GPU 挖矿机。”但对于业绩却绝口不提,可知在市场渐熊的 2018 年,做矿机未必是门好生意。



今年 1 月份,中青宝在互动易上表示,控股股东宝德科技自主研发的数字货币矿机 2018 年已在热销。公司全资子公司宝腾互联计划将剩余的带宽和算力,与宝德科技的矿机联合做成云算力平台。

区块链概念,让其在 10 月底收获 6 次涨停、并多次登上龙虎榜。

10 月 29 日晚间,中青宝公告,称公司自 2018 年开始涉足区块链溯源等业务,所取得的合同收入共计 85 万元,其中,可计入今年的营收为 75.57 万元,净利润为 52.67 万元。


根据嘉楠耘智此前披露的成本结构,芯片封测支出约为晶圆加工支出的 11%。由此,海通证券在 2018 年出估测,2017 年矿机芯片封测市场总量在 9 亿元—11 亿元之间。并预测道,矿机芯片需求旺盛,有望成为中国封测行业的新兴驱动力。

但是后来的市场走势我们都看到了。2018 年,比特币全网算力增速为 110%,可谓迅猛,但相较于 2017 年 1100% 的增速,其实已慢了不少,矿机产业也未能如愿成为中国封测行业的增长加速器。









据海通证券 2018 年 1 月消息,华电科技称,2016 年开始接比特大陆矿机芯片封测业务,目前公司为比特币准备的封测产能为 3000 万颗/月,预计在 2018 年 2 月底扩产至 6000 万颗/月。结合当前比特币封测 1.6 元左右单价,预计该业务 2018 年有望带来超 10 亿营收。

去年,华天科技营业总收入 72 亿元,但净利率仅有 6%。矿机封测业务带来的实际营收为多少,年报中并未提及。


据中泰郑震湘团队的通富微电调研纪要(20180514)报告,“2018 年通富微电的崇川厂有做一些比特大陆矿机业务,中高低端产品都能做,每天(封装)100-150 万颗左右,毛利率比较高。”

另外,通富微电通过收购美国 AMD(GPU 生产厂商,GPU 也可以用挖矿)苏州、槟城两厂,不仅在封测技术上提升一大截,还获得了后者的大量订单。“国内来看,并购前,AMD 50% 订单在苏州槟城,并购后 80%-90% 在此。”

2019 年上半年,通富苏州、槟城两厂销售收入较去年同期增长了 32%,而整个公司收入同期增长仅 3%。



中国长城旗下有 一款名为“巨龙”的矿机电源品牌。2018 年初,其曾在互动易平台上表示,“长城千瓦级的巨龙系列电源独占鳌头,以近 80% 市场占有率力压群雄,成为事实上中国数字矿机高性能电源的标杆产品。”

在其股吧中,也有多头以“巨龙垄断 80% 的矿机电源市场”进行宣传。但根据矿业人士分析,周围人最常用的第三方电源品牌(与矿商官方电源相对)是链力等电源品牌,巨龙只是偶尔听闻。所以这个估算可能有误,或是数据过时了。




据其今年的公告,2019 年与北京三合兴电子科技有限公司有业务往来,合作产品是该公司代理的电子元器件产品。该产品最终售给比特大陆全资子公司世纪云芯,从而为矿机提供电子元器件。

鸿远电子披露的 2019 年半年报显示,其代理业务较上年同期下滑了 11.5%。


2018 年 1 月 11 日,深科技曾表示自己是国内知名比特币矿机厂商之一,公司从 2017 年 11 月开始导入该项业务,至 2018 年 1 月产量在 15 万台左右,引起市场关注。


1 月 16 日,深科技回复投资者,“公司只做矿机的代工,并不负责销售。”







2018 年 3 月 9 日,华铁科技宣布向旗下子公司华铁恒安增资 7000 万元(加上注册资本,投入共计 1.7 亿元),以开展矿场建设、矿机租赁业务。

5 月-6 月,华铁恒安以 4740 元每台的单价,向嘉楠耘智和亿邦科技订购了 3.65 万台“服务器”(矿机),总价 1.73 亿元。


受此影响,华铁恒安 2018 年度出现 1.1  亿元的经营亏损。至今年 1 月份,无法维持的华铁恒安以近 6000 万元的低价卖身。


这家公司贡献了亿邦科技去年上半年 18.7% 的销售额。

2018 年 3 月开始,众应互联子公司彩量科技陆续向亿邦科技支付 4 亿元购买 6.5 万台矿机,公告表示这是代理海外公司 VAST 采购矿机,代理采购业务收入 2200 万元,毛利率达 100%。

互联在线 (835727)


其宣称,公司已在海外多个国家开设了多个矿场,规划将分三期投入,在冰岛、格鲁吉亚及中东地区等海外国家自建大型矿场,计划共建 900 MW(兆瓦)变电站,建成后可供 60 万台机器开机。

今年 8 月,Odaily星球日报研究院根据挖矿成本模型计算出各家云算力平台的收益率,发现在当时币价 10150 美元的情况下,RHY 的理论收益率为 -14%,在 10 家同类产品中倒数第二。





2018 年 1 月 15 日,广东骏亚在互动易上表示,数字货币挖矿机需要使用印制电路板,广东骏亚具有数字货币挖矿机线路板研发、生产和销售能力,引来投资者兴趣。



Odaily星球日报搜集了景嘉微的官方公告、投资者互动信息,均未发现其直接或间接参与 GPU 矿机的业务。




















而至于DeFi(去中心化金融),则是去中心化托管的无须准入的金融协议,是有别于传统金融模式的崭新业态。在今年6月份举行的“2019以太坊技术及应用大会”上,太坊创始人Vitalik Buterin接受巴比特采访时盛赞DeFi为区块链行业的一个巨大的应用。在imToken创始人何斌眼里,DeFi是人类良好意愿的表达,DeFi借助区块链,允许人们在一个没有国际边界、没有身份差别,也没有金额差别的情况下,以零门槛的方式参与到金融市场,享受金融服务。


自2018 年8月DeFi一词被提出至今,DeFi锁定的资产从当时的1.5亿美金迅速逼近6.5亿美金,月复合增速10%以上。在DeFi赛道上,形成了支付、稳定币、DEX(去中心化交易平台)、衍生品等众多细分赛道,涌现出了闪电网路、MakerDAO、Uniswap、Dharma等明星项目。









零知识证明因为可以在使用者做某件事或知道某件事的证明,而不泄露任何其他信息,这种良好的特性可以被用作隐私保护,一直受到技术爱好者的青睐。前不久,以太坊创始人Vitalik在接受采访时提到,为了让以太坊 3.0 阶段的协议更加安全,正在努力实现零知识证明。在这次峰会上,Findora CTO Ben Fisch也分享了通过零知识证明的方法来保护隐私。相比SNARKs、STARKs、Groth16、Bulletproofs等零知识证明方案,Findora所使用的Supersonic的证明大小非常小,验证快,而且其不需要可信设置,适合各种复杂度的隐私交易。






X-Order 创始人陶荣祺(Tony Tao),在世界区块链大会上做主题演讲时是这样评价智能合约的重要性的,他说:“以太坊图灵完备的智能合约直接将“区块链”属性从比特币上抽离出来。其结果是,不仅加密数字货币社区利用以太坊以实现区块链无限可能,更重要的是所有人都发现,研究和利用区块链的成本和门槛骤然降低。金融机构、科研机构乃至政府纷纷开始加入区块链研究和试点的队伍里。”




在比原链“Keep MOVing”专场活动上,比原链CEO朗豫介绍了Bytom MOV, 这是基于 Bystack 主侧链架构的下一代去中心跨链 Layer 2 价值交换协议,由价值交换引擎磁力合约(Magnet)、去中心跨链网关(OFMF)和 Layer 2高速侧链(Vapor)三大核心模块构成。在区块链成为全球博弈的前沿阵地之际,MOV或许就是让国内的公链在国际竞争上获得优势地位的排头兵。



在推动跨链落地上,不少团队认为DeFi是跨链的突破口。在《Web3.0的萌芽与兴起》圆桌论坛上,IRISnet和比原链都在做相关的探索,前者不久前开启了 IRIS Hub 对 DeFi 应用开发的支持,后者最新推出的MOV也在全力推进跨链DeFi落地。

微众银行区块链负责人范瑞彬在《面向分布式商业的区块链实践之路》的演讲中提到,人类商业文明的变迁,正在从集中式向分布式转变,而区块链是支撑分布式商业的重要基础设。如果说范瑞彬是代表联盟链阵营,公链阵营是否会这么认为呢?我们发现,在比原链“Keep MOVing”专场活动上,比原链CEO朗豫也持同样观点。当天,比原链发布Bytom MOV,这是下一代去中心跨链Layer2价值交换协议,在朗豫的设想中,MOV就是第一个自给自足的分布式区块链商业生态。






为了探寻更有价值的场景,京东JD Chain则是开发出了一套兼容公链场景以及面向企业场景的统一区块链底层架构,而且代码已经开源。至此,BAT之中,除了蚂蚁区块链,百度和京东的区块链底层平台均已开源。
