Bitcoin Is Not the Harbinger of Financial Change, but DeFi Is 2021/04/26 18:27:58 Benzinga
By: Tim Fries The closer one is to the sun, the more blinded one becomes. These words of wisdom can be found in some form or another, relaying simple truth about human endeavors. The closer we are to the subject matter, the more likely we’ll miss important concepts outside of our concentrated focus—and engage in muddled thinking. This applies to the complex and pioneering world of blockchain in a number of ways. Fortunately, after many milestones crossed, we can take a more objective view in the rear-view mirror. Bitcoin Has Become Mainstream - but Is Its Utility Future-Proof? After reaching a $1 trillion market cap and becoming integrated into the world’s payment processing flows such as PayPal and Square’s CashApp, it’s safe to say that Bitcoin has broken many barriers. In the last couple of months, Canada has approved four Ethereum ETFs while a Bitcoin ETF was launched in February by Purpose Investments on the Toronto Stock Exchange. In the United States, we have yet to see a Bitcoin ETF on NASDAQ or NYSE, although Kryptoin BTC ETF is currently under review by the SEC.

The Future of E-commerce and The Contents of Our New Wallets 2021/04/22 14:30:58 Benzinga
A recently-released report from Adobe's e-commerce division shows that the pandemic helped increase online sales nearly $190 million between March 2020 and this February. The headline-grabbing prediction of the first $1 trillion e-commerce year in 2022 should have sent e-commerce stocks soaring, but it didn't. What happened here?

Affirm reached a high in February, but has dropped 40% since then, primarily on the basis of weaker reported sales.

Elon Musk said Tesla wouldn't exist without a little-known electric convertible called the tZero. Here's how the prototype car led to the formation of Tesla and paved the way for electric vehicles. (TSLA) 2021/03/19 20:28:16 Business Insider
Summary List Placement It's hard to remember a time when "Elon Musk" and "electric cars" didn't go hand-in-hand. But back in the early 2000s, the dream of mass-market electric cars with long range and rapid acceleration was still a long way off for Musk, who had already cofounded and sold Zip2 and PayPal and was working on SpaceX. That changed with a fateful test drive in 2003. At the behest of the person who would go on to become Tesla's first chief technology officer, JB Straubel, Musk took a ride in AC Propulsion's tZero, a tiny electric car that was built as a prototype. Musk was so wowed by the car he tried to get the company to commercialize it — it didn't want to, which in part led to the birth of Tesla. Musk described driving the tZero and the events the followed on the Third Row Tesla podcast in February, which was spotted by CNBC's Taylor Locke . Here's how the tZero led the way in electric cars, sparked Elon Musk's interest, and inspired the Tesla Roadster. The tZero was designed by a company called AC Propulsion, which in the early 2000s, was run by cofounder Alan Cocconi and CEO Tom Gage.

To learn more about this report, email Business Insider Intelligence Client Services at firstname.lastname@example.org . The US banks with the highest levels of digital trust in 2020 are PNC, Chase, and Citibank, according to Business Insider Intelligence's inaugural Banking Digital Trust study. Digital trust is the confidence that consumers place in their banks' digital channels — and that confidence is more important now than ever. As the coronavirus pandemic sparks branch closures , digital banking outages , and fraud schemes , trust is being put to the test on multiple levels. Building digital trust could unlock valuable benefits for banks, including increased satisfaction, engagement, and customer lifetime value. Respondents who rated their bank above average in digital trust ratings considered themselves likely to open their next account at the bank at more than twice the rate of those with low trust (22.6% versus 10.4%).
