Bitcoin Won’t Do a Lehman Collapse

In an interview with Channel News Asia, Sopnendu Mohanty – chief of financial technology at the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the country’s central bank, opined bitcoin will not cause a global financial crisis in the event of a price collapse. The central bank official insisted global regulators are “getting serious about this whole cryptocurrency market”, suggesting authorities would step in with regulations when bitcoin markets continue to grow globally.

In October, the head of Singapore’s central bank insisted that bitcoin itself didn’t need any oversight as a cryptocurrency. Instead, MAS chief Ravi Menon insisted a regulator’s focus ought to be on the abuse of cryptocurrencies for illicit financing and other illegal activities. “So, those [regulatory] requirements apply to the activity around cryptocurrency, rather than the cryptocurrency itself,” Menon said at the time.

WWF Uses a Blockchain to Eradicate Illegal Fishing and Slavery

According to an announcement from the organisation the transparency of the distributed ledger will prevent consumers from purchasing tuna from illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing in the Pacific Islands. Additionally, it will help to eradicate human rights abuses. This is just another example of how the blockchain is being widely applied to different industries and not just the financial sector.

As part of the innovative initiative, WWF-Australia, WWF-Fiji, and WWF-New Zealand have teamed up with global tech innovator ConsenSys, information and communications technology implementer TraSeable, and tuna fishing and processing company Sea Quest Fiji Ltd. to deliver the project.
