- The allegations surface on Tether's supporter involved in money laundering operations
Deltec Bank, the Bahamian banking institution that recently wrote a letter confirming that Tether has more than $ 1.7 billion on its accounts, has turned into a little bit in a pickle.
A report by the Brazilian newspaper "O Globo" suggests that the bank is under investigation by the country's authorities.
The investigation focuses on a Brazilian official charged with recycling $ 25 million through a different Bahamian bank and transferring funds to Brazil through Deltec Bank and Trust.
The investigation does not directly involve Tether or its funds. However it questions the integrity of Deltec Bank and Trust. After the investigation became publicized, the confirmation letter that would have to show that the supply of this stablecoin is fully supported now seems even less legitimate than before.
- Swift denies partnership with Ripple rumors
Several reports have emerged recently saying that Swift, the popular payment network operating around the world, is considering the opportunity to become part of the RippleNet network.
As a reminder, RippleNet is a network of financial institutions that are testing or are already implementing Ripple products such as xRapid, xVia or XRP.
The rumors started to emerge because Swift announced the intention to update its protocol standards this month. The update will see the launch of the company's new global payment platform, Swift gpi. This, along with Ripple who attended the Swift Sibos conference this year in Sydney, has led many to believe that there is a partnership with beer.
A company spokesman was quick to confirm that there is no truth on any of these rumors:
"I'm not sure where these rumors are coming from, but the imminent release of standards … is totally unrelated to RippleNet. Its main purpose is to ensure that all payments include a tracking reference (UETR, unique end-to-end transaction reference) that will allow banks to track their end-to-end gpi payments in real time. "
- The encrypted extraction is entering the mainstream of technology
"The sons of Sundar Pichai and Sergey Brin are both crypto mining, Facebook is doing blockchain, Square open has got a nice code of cold storage, Microsoft, Amazon, Google Cloud all have blockchain efforts, crypto is entering the mainstream of technology " Balaji Srinivasan said in a Twitter post published the other day.
The post came after Google founder Sergay Brin and CEO Sundar Pichai talked about their children already involved in the mining encryption business:
"Last week I was having dinner with my son, and I was talking about something about Bitcoin and my son clarified what it was about Ethereum, which is slightly different, he's 11 and told me he's digging it. [to] Explain how card paper really works. I realized that Ethereum understood better how paper money works. I had to talk to him about the banking system, the importance of it. And it was a good conversation, " Pichai said in a recent interview. Brin was not shy about sharing her family's experiences with encryption:
"A year or two ago, my son insisted that we needed a gaming PC, I told him," Okay, if we get a gaming PC, we need to extract the cryptocurrency. an Ethereum miner there. "
