[Chain Partners Insight] Bitcoin bolsters the Techfin revolution Indepth Report

We argue fintech before bitcoin is like mobile before iPhone. We expect bitcoin and other digital assets to significantly bolster Techfin, predicting mobile will play a financial platform role in the future We highlight the most notable networks; 1) Starbucks – ICE – Microsoft”; 2) Goldman Sachs – Apple. Other than these two networks, we anticipate more financial and ICT companies to create digital asset networks going forward. More and more large corporations are making forays into the blockchain industry. The destiny of startups is hinged on the way they cooperate with large corporations, in our view. This report shows the digital asset-oriented Techfin trend. 1) Mobile as a Bank 2) Digital Assets Stimulate the Techfin Revolution 3) Starbucks` Ambition to be the Bitcoin Financial Platform 4) The Reason Why Apple Chose Goldman Sachs for Apple Card’s Partner Please check the link below for more detailed information.

Bitcoin is emerging as digital gold Indepth Report

We argue bitcoin is emerging as digital gold on the back of 1) resolving regulation uncertainty across the world; 2) Wall Street giants to increasingly build institutional-grade infrastructure; 3) robust demand from LATAM and Africa where monetary system is unstable with poor banking infrastructure; 4) changing history of store-of-value asset; 5) complicated interests intertwined with bitcoin among various countries (In particular US vs. China) and corporations. Our report contradicts WGC (World Gold Council)`s report “Cryptocurrencies are No Substitute for Gold” We believe physically settled institutional-grade exchanges (Bakkt and Eris X) will likely resolve lingering concern on bitcoin`s trust, which may lead bitcoin ETF approval in US. Bitcoin`s trust is getting stronger as time goes by. It`s just a matter of time for digital asset market to attract institutional money. Currently, the bitcoin price has plunged more than 80% from the peak. The current situation reminds us of Warren Buffett`s famous quote “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful” although he doesn`t like bitcoin. 1) Bitcoin is an asset, not a currency 2) Bakkt will be a game changer 3) Bitcoin is evolving into digital gold 4) Bitcoin price analysis Please check the link below for more detailed information.

Security token (STO) analysis Indepth Report

[Chain Partners Insight] Security token (STO) analysis Chain Partners published in-depth report on security token (STO). Our view is that security tokens still remain at an experimental stage, and 2019 will become the initial period for the appearance of legitimate infrastructure for the institutionalization of digital assets. As security tokens fall under the framework of traditional finance, we believe it is nearly impossible for it to expand into a trillion dollar market without the entrance of financial institutions. (In early 2018 when the majority of the market was utility tokens, the maximum value of the digital asset market was USD 814b). For the institutionalization of digital assets, there needs to be: 1) clear regulations; 2) international standards; 3) legitimate infrastructure and 4) participation of reputable traditional financial institutions. We believe it may take a long time for the digital asset market to fulfill these standards. We project the security token market size will grow to USD 2t by 2030 with a 59% CAGR during 2019-2030, amid steady improvement of the digital asset ecosystem, toward institutionalization possibly after 2025. The contents of this report are as follows. 1) The background of security token boom 2) Security token ecosystem 3) The myth of security token 4) Security token market size analysis Please check the link below for more detailed information.
