These two groups would be looking trading’s aspects, for example strategies and sustainability, diversity and specifically within KyberNetwork's early-stage exchange model. They have developed the roadmap for three-month. They will hope to find potential problems and solutions for exit from them.

 

We see the power of [decentralised exchanges] to influence adoption of the technology by mainstream users. Berkeley students, energetically focused on innovation and creative problem-solving, are an excellent group to help extend KyberNetwork's ideas and creative energy.

The team are looking four parameters: how many tokens users can transact at one moment, how long reserv rebuild, how many times to lock-up for reserve, price of token. Students, faculty, employees, researchers, engineers and others are participant in this research.

The hypothesis is about potentially unable of centralized exchanges to handle large volumes of users and decentralized would be trading platforms as a better alternative.

The Swiss luxury watch maker Franck Muller, in partnership with the cryptocurrency trading platform Regal Assets, launched Encrypto, the world's first functional bitcoin watch. This is reported by the Coindesk.

The main feature of Encrypto will be the possibility of "deep storage" of Bitcoin. So, along with the watch, customers will receive a USB wallet containing a private key to the wallet, the public key is applied to the watch face.

A limited line of watches (up to 500 units of male and female models) priced from $ 10 to $ 60 thousand is also available in the online store of Franck Muller, as well as in the company store in Dubai. Along with traditional credit card and bank transfer, you can buy them for Bitcoins.

The company also reported that they are considering the possibility of issuing such watches with the support of other leading cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum and XRP.

In the beginning of the year it became known that the Swiss watch manufacturer A. Favre & Fils is developing a handmade mechanical watch with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet.
