Bitcoin Private team is going to host a meetup at San-Francisco with its community and some of the leaders of the cryptocurrency segment. The team would like to share its experience, expertise and knowledge on the blockchain privacy, its story of helping to adopt the blockchain mainstream. The event is focused on people who are either members of the ongoing blockchain project or those interested in the issues of privacy and mass adoption of the blockchain. The agenda also includes topics that are general to the industry.

The Bitcoin Private team (Founder & Lead Developer Rhett Creighton, Lead Wallet Developer & Senior Blockchain Developer Jon Layton, Adoption & Inclusion Lead Nika Dahlbacka, etc.) will also participate at the event to discuss the matters of potential partnership with BTCP and even mere contribution to the open source community of the project.

We’re making this event a bit more casual than our previous ones so that we can keep the conversations more casual and open ended, yet maintaining high quality.

Bitbox charges a 0.1% commission and supports 15 languages, including English, Korean, Chinese, Spanish, French and German. In Russia, the US, Japan and some other countries, the exchange is not available.

At the beginning of the year, Line Group applied for a license to the Japan Financial Services Agency, but the process dragged on because of tightening of the regulator's requirements in the light Coincheck exchange hack. All crypto exchange, wishing to provide services in the Japanese market, are required to obtain permission from the local regulator.

Currently, Line is also in the process of obtaining a license in the US. The company decided to open its first trading platform for crypto-currencies in Singapore, as this city-state adheres to a progressive approach to the regulation of the digital currency sphere.

With cryptocurrency, we are going to take our challenge in financial services global.

CEO, Line

In May, Line Group denied rumors that it intends to release its own token and distribute it through the ICO. Every month Line is used by about 200 million people. The messenger is extremely popular in Japan, South Korea and Thailand.
