Major Headlines


GBP Stablecoin - TrustToken


The TrustToken network is continuing to push toward the goals set with the company’s initial launch. Beginning with just one stablecoin that is a 1:1 peg with USD, the company has now established a 1:1 peg to the British Pound. TrueGBP(TGBP) token is now available for trading on through the Alameda Research, Bluefire Capital, Galois Capital and QCP Capita OTC trading platforms. The company plans to register this token with cryptocurrency exchanges soon as well. “Purchase and trade of TrueGBP will be available like any other ERC-20 token, and is compatible with all ERC-20 wallets. Customers who want to purchase or redeem through the TrustToken app will need to pass the regular KYC [Know Your Customer]/AML [Anti Money Laundering] requirements in accordance with our MSB [Money Service Business] license.” - Rafael Cosman, the startup’s co-founder and head of engineering


Coincheck Looks to Rebound


Last year Coincheck filled headlines for a massive $530 million dollar hack. NEM tokens were stolen from the company’s digital wallets and never able to be recovered.

Monex has helped Coincheck receive a regulatory license in Japan and become a registered entity with the Kanto Financial Bureau under the country’s Payment Service Act. The first major development from the new ownership is an OTC trading desk focused on institutional clients. Customers are required to buy and sell a minimum of 50 bitcoins, roughly $205,423 USD.
