Major Headlines


Jaguar, Land Rover - Cryptocurrency Payouts


In partnership with IOTA car brands Jaguar and Land Rover may integrate a cryptocurrency service in their newest bodels. The companies will offer rewards to drivers for sharing their data via the cryptocurrency IOTA (IOTA). Their cars will automatically report road condition data, such as traffic congestion, to navigation providers or local authorities. The tokens can then be used for any number of things, but most conveniently, things like toll roads. “In the future an autonomous car could drive itself to a charging station, recharge and pay, while its owner could choose to participate in the sharing economy – earning rewards from sharing useful data such as warning other cars of traffic jams.” - Software architect Russell Vickers


E*Trade Launching Cryptocurrency Platform


A very basic cryptocurrency platform may be coming soon to one of the long standing digital investment platforms E*Trade. According to New York Bloomberg article, the company will add trading support for just the two major cryptocurrencies - Bitcoin and Ethereum. Their current platform a user base of over 4 million, and does not hold the same millennial generation appeal as other platforms such as Robinhood. The move could be made more as a marketing gimmick than actual services, however in either case the attention on Bitcoin continues to prevail.
