PosWallet is transitioning from POSW to a new XSN coin to implement new features like TPoS and Masternode while FazzCoin are moving to ERC-20 token because at the moment there are no miners on their network. Due to these changes, Cryptopia exchange is delisting both coins effective on April 29. As before, in case of PosWallet users are strongly advised to withdraw their funds before April 29 in order to ensure the safety and accessibility of the funds after the removal. The POSW network will stop being supported on May 1 and no issues are expected to happen.

As for FazzCoin, things are looking grim: because the network is not being mined, FAZZ lost its functionality. That means the chances of being able to withdraw the funds to users' personal wallets is quite low. The developers team was contacted and informed of the delisting. Unfortunately, Cryptopia was now informed of the swap, so users are advised to monitor any possible news source about the status of FAZZ coin. That way users will not miss out on the swap if it goes ahead. All complaints regarding the issues with withdrawal should be directed towards the coin developers team.

At the moment of publication, PosWallet market parameters are as follows

  • Average price: $0.360340
  • Market cap: $15,890,994
  • Volume (24H): $9,406

As for FazzCoin, its market indicators are as follows:

  • Average price: $0.005357
  • Volume (24H): $16

The state-owned Brazilian National Social Development Bank intends to issue a cryptocurrency token tied to the Brazilian real. It is reported by CoinDesk.

The pilot project for the production of a token BNDES based on Ethereum will start in January next year. At first, the coin will be used to finance cultural institutions. In particular, the bank will allocate a certain number of new tokens to the local cinema agency.

As the newspaper notes, the bank conducted experiments with steyblecoin throughout 2018. The consultant of the project for the release of a new “stable coin” will be the well-known Ethereum start-up ConsenSys.

According to representatives of the bank, the issue of the BNDES coin will help restore public confidence in Brazilian state banks, which are often criticized due to corruption scandals.

Also, the bank is confident that in the future, stablecoin can be used to finance organizations and projects from various fields.

Note that recently in Brazil there has been a trend towards liberalization of the regulation of cryptoindustry. For example, in October, the Brazilian Securities Commission allowed local investment companies to invest in a cryptocurrency ecosystem through the acquisition of derivatives and shares in foreign funds. It is noteworthy that at the beginning of the year the same financial regulator announced the prohibition of both direct investment in cryptocurrency and indirect investment through intermediaries in the person of foreign companies.
