Did the Winklevoss Brothers Buy the Approval of Gemini Exchange? 532

Winklevoss Brothers

The cryptocurrency experts have recently noticed an interesting coincidence between the fact that the Winklevoss brothers sponsored the political campaign of a government official and the approval that was received by their cryptocurrency exchange Gemini immediately afterwards. Or is it not a coincidence?

As the New York Post reports, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have both recently sent $50k each in support of the campaign of Andrew Cuomo, an American politician.

This happened in late April. About 3 weeks later, the digital currency exchange Gemini got an official permission from the administration of New York to conduct cryptocurrency trading operations.

Moreover, after another month passed the brothers sent another $15k checks each to Cuomo, even though they have never supported this politician prior to April. Nobody can deny the fact that the situation is pretty strange.

Despite all the suspicions, the members of Cuomo’s campaign claim that the Winklevoss twins just see Andrew Cuomo as an effective politician with good potential.

According to the representative of Cuomo:

No contribution of any size influences any government action.”

We remind you that this spring the twins Winklewoss have launched Gemini Block Trading for large transactions.

Coinbase Admits Being Wrong After Claiming that It Got an Approval from the SEC 707

coinbase lied about sec

The cryptocurrency giant Coinbase has recently bought the platform Earn.com, and it is not going to stop there. This time the exchange is planning to purchase three smaller companies to expand even further.

The businesses that will soon belong to the exchange are:

  • Digital Wealth LLC;
  • Keystone Capital Corp;
  • Venovate Marketplace Inc.

However, for some reason, the representatives of Coinbase decided that they need the consent of the Securities and Exchange Commission for such an action. They even did an interview with Bloomberg where it was mentioned that the SEC gave Coinbase “the green light”.

In reality it turned out that not only the Commission did not provide any approvals, the approval wasn’t needed at all. The representatives of the company hurried to address the issue:

It is not correct to say that the SEC and FINRA approved Coinbase’s purchase of Keystone because SEC was not involved in the approval process.

Although, the SEC is strictly watching over the cryptocurrency industry, in this case their services were not necessary. The spokesperson of the SEC stated that the plans for purchasing were discussed with Coinbase informally.

We would like to remind you that Coinbase has recently added new services to its growing list.

Stellar Became the First Blockchain that Complied With the “Sharia Law” 1445

stellar received sharia license

As we mentioned in our article about the first authentic Arabic cryptocurrency (Dubaicoin), the countries of the Middle East were one of the last ones to consider such innovative technologies as blockchain and digital coins.

The thing is, that the citizens of these countries are muslim, which means that all spheres of their life are controlled by religion. All inventions are carefully examined and approved only if they comply with the so-called “Sharia law”.

Stellar which is a blockchain-based network payment platform was inspected by an agency specializing in providing official certificates for companies and projects that meet the “Sharia law” requirements. The agency found Stellar applicable for the certificate. The post about this appeared on the Twitter account of the platform.

According to the post on the official site of Stellar:

The Shariyah Review Bureau (SRB), a leading international Sharia advisory agency licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain, has reviewed the properties and applications of Stellar and has promulgated guidance and guidelines that enable Sharia compliant applications of Stellar technology in Islamic financial institutions.

Stellar’s representatives view the certificate as an important step in the development and expansion of their platform, since now it is available for thousands of new customers from Islamic countries.
