The representative of a major German software company SAP has spoken about the upcoming upgrades. Falk Rieker is sure that best expansion policy is collaborating with other institutions and picking up some of their strategic decisions.

That is why the company followed the example of their long-term partner, a Canadian bank ATB, and decided to research the potential of the Ripple cross-border payment technology.

Overall, it took 2 companies 10 days to prepare for the upgrade, and after that the first trial transaction between Canada and Germany was conducted. The transaction was successful and took less than a minute.

And this is not just, you know, a benefit of cost and time, this is first of all the benefit regarding customer experience.said Falk Rieker.

While cryptocurrency is leaking into the spheres of entertainment, music and sports, the food industry seems to be falling behind a little. Though McDonald’s did launch its MacCoin, frankly speaking, it had nothing to do with crypto except its name.

A little cafe in the capital of Switzerland managed to outrun the king of fast food. You can now purchase food and beverages there using the Lightning Network of Bitcoin. By the way, the cafe is called energyKitchen.

To come up with this upgrade, the management of the cafe partnered up with a local IT company, and here is the result – Bitcoin holders now orders meals from the online menu or scan QR codes outside the cafe and pay for everything in BTC.

Oliver Grugger, the owner of this cafe, revealed some details on his Twitter.

So if you happen to be in Bern with a couple Bitcoins in your virtual pocket, make sure to stop by energyKitchen and get a cup of coffee.

SEC Regulations and SEC Vision Are Two Completely Different Things: What Does It Mean for Ethereum?

sec and eth

The Securities and Exchanges Commission is the most influential organization in the US when it comes for crypto. If the SEC officially disapproves a project, this project is doomed. Crypto exchanges, crypto companies, ICO startups all comply with the mighty SEC.

However, it is important to distinguish when the SEC comes out with an official statement and when the SEC representatives declare their thoughts and opinions on a particular issue.

This is what the report published by Jay Clayton on the official website of the SEC is about:

Statements issued by SEC staff frequently include a disclaimer underscoring the important distinction between the Commission’s rules and regulations, on the one hand, and staff views on the other.”

This leads us to another thought. So far the crypto community was sure the SEC did not consider Ethereum a security on the official level. However, now it turns out that it was just the point of view of the abovementioned Jay Clayton.

Thus, Ethereum might still be a security after all. Hopefully, it will boost its exchange rate a little, since it hasn’t been particularly high these couple of weeks.
