Major Headlines


Lightning Network Apple Watch App


One of the front runners for most popular Bitcoin Lightning network has now released a version of their software that is compatible with the Apple Watch. Bluewallet released the app this weekend, and gives users the ability to fully interact with the Lightning network for more accessible, cheaper and fast payments using Bitcoin. The app generates QR codes for the send to provide the receiver in order to deliver a payment. It is available to the public, but is still a bit of a prototype. “If feedback is good, we’ll spend more time on the project. It’s a very early stage industry so we’re trying to figure out how to build this stuff properly.” - Product and UX engineer Nuno Coelho


Switzerland SIX Exchange Potential Token Launch


Plans for a digital asset exchange platform were confirmed last year by Switzerland's leading stock exchange SIX. The company will use tokenization to digitize traditional assets. They plan to bring the exchange live with a native token and an “initial digital offering” (IDO) service in 2020 after an initial pilot phase. The experimental platform is planned for testing this summer. That would follow a trial expected to be completed late this summer. “We’ve got a number of organizations which want to launch tokenized structured products, real estate funds, and so on. But it could also be our own IDO. Whether we begin with warrants, structured products, funds is up to our clients to decide. That is currently being finalized with our user-owners.” Thomas Zeeb, SIX Executive


PepsiCo Completes Blockchain Trial


The Zilliq network was utilized by PepsiCo to trial blockchain technology benefits to their supply chain. Project Proton has now been completed, with a significant 28% increase to efficiency according to PepsiCo. The trial compared the full supply chain, including payment reconciliations. Smart contracts were used to automate several of the steps, including use of an internal Native Alliance Token (NAT). The smart contracts reconcile impressions that are delivered from multiple data sources in near real time, which could otherwise take days to confirm. “The results are encouraging, and we plan to run a few more campaigns under different conditions to verify more hypotheses and measure overall impact.” - Farida Shakhshir, PepsiCo’s director of consumer engagement for the Asia, Middle East and North Africa regions
