Global Chip Supplier Expects Low Demand for Crypto Mining, Offsetting Q4 Revenue Growth

Major global chip manufacturing firm Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) predicts revenue growth in Q4, but expects a counterbalance due to the low demand for crypto mininghardware, Reuters reports Thursday, Oct. 18.

TSMC, the world’s largest independent semiconductor foundry, forecasts “modest” revenue growth in the fourth quarter, mainly due to solid sales of high-end chips for premium smartphones. According to Reuters, TSMC is expecting Q4 revenue to increase to somewhere between $9.35 billion and $9.45 billion, as compared to $9.21 billion a year ago.

However, the expected growth will be allegedly offset by the low sales of cryptocurrency mining equipment.

While TSMC’s chief financial officer Lora Ho revealed that the company is forecasting a “continued steep ramp” of demand for TSMC’s 7 nanometre for a number of “high-end smartphones,” the CFO pointed at the “continued weakness” in crypto mining demand — as well as inventory management by clients — as potential reasons for a “[partial] offset” of the company’s revenues.

TSMC has clarified that while servicing revenues for premium phones will continue to grow, the middle-class smartphone market will drop this year. Tech giant Apple, which is reportedly the “most important customer” of the TSMC, is set to be a key contributor to the company’s revenue growth in the last quarter of 2018, with the release of its new iPhone models.

Earlier this year, TSMC had decreased estimates several times on its revenues due to a low demand for high-end smartphones and cryptocurrency mining.

In April, the company lowered their revenue estimates based in part on an uncertainty in demand for crypto mining. And in July, TSMC again predicted a decline of the annual revenue and capital expenditure estimates, citing the preference of miners for lower-powered chips over TSMC’s higher-powered chips due to the crypto price volatility and stricter regulations in the industry this year.

Recently, Cointelegraph reported on major crypto mining hardware suppliers such as Bitmain, Canaan, and Ebang being potentially threatened by U.S. sanctions on Chinese goods. The report comes in the wake of industry reclassification and a stricter tariff regime by the the office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR).

Bitcoin Breakout ‘Only a Matter of Time’: Analyst

Bolstered by stable trading volume, growing network activity, and increasing validation on Wall Street, the bitcoin price could be on the brink of a major move to the upside.

Writing in daily market commentary made available to CCN, eToro senior market analyst Mati Greenspan said that the stars continue to align for a potential bitcoin rally, making it increasingly likely that the most prominent cryptocurrency will soon break out of its holding pattern.

“It’s only a matter of time now,” he said of a potential bitcoin breakout. “Of course, the flatline pattern could easily remain for another few months and that wouldn’t be a bad thing, however, there are signs of excitement boiling underneath the cool price action exterior.”

Greenspan, who previously said that he thought bitcoin was heading into a “classic breakout pattern,” identified three catalysts that he said were suggestive of an imminent breakout, namely, a rising transaction rate, steady daily trading volumes, and the continuing growth of cryptocurrency-related activities on Wall Street.

Blockchain E-Commerce Platform Allows Shoppers to Purchase Directly From Manufacturers

A new decentralized e-commerce platform aims to allow online shoppers and e-commerce stores to combine purchasing power and microdistribution to access bulk pricing and discounts.

Buying.com says that they have multiple solutions to the many issues faced by customers, describing themselves as ‘e-commerce reinvented’.

According to the company, the four key elements of their project are MicroDistribution, purchasing power, storefront creation, and fragmentation. MicroDistribution are channels powered by decentralized networks and distribution ledgers. Purchasing power, means manipulating wholesale pricing advantages by offering customers ‘direct to consumer’ pricing via peer to peer networks. Storefront creation implies creating an e-commerce platform that would let online retailers engage with the decentralized network seamlessly. Fragmentation aims to allow smaller scale retailers to challenge larger global retailers for market share, by offering integrated back office operations coupled with the aforementioned microdistribution and peer networks.

Describing the benefits for users involved with buying.com, the company says manufacturers can enjoy faster distribution and access to consumer markets, as well as increased global reach; online retailers can price their items as low as possible and buy directly from manufacturers and wholesalers, and consumers will also enjoy low prices and access to a greater number of products.

NYU Students Complaining About Nouriel’s Attack on Crypto Says Alum

Economist Nouriel Roubini made headlines throughout the past two weeks for his condemnation of the cryptomarket and mischaracterization of high profile developers, entrepreneurs, and builders in the space.

His overly aggressive attacks, which many considered to be out of character including Bollinger Bands creator John Bollinger, were bizarrely based on false information that was relatively simple to refute with readily available and public data.

What triggered @Nouriel? That is a shameful stream of hate speech, filth and bile coming from a well-educated professor.

For instance, Roubini pushed a narrative that claimed a Starbucks latte will cost $63 if paying with Bitcoin because a Bitcoin transaction fee is $60. In reality, the transaction fee of Bitcoin is below $0.1, which is common knowledge and verifiable to the public on the blockchain.

CME Report: Bitcoin Futures Trading 41 Percent Up from Q3 2018

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), one of two major providers of Bitcoin Futures in the U.S., revealed trade volumes increased 41 percent in Q3 2018 with interest rates up by 19 percent.

Booming Bitcoin Futures

MarketWhile the retail cryptocurrency market has taken a downturn in 2018, the institutional-focussed Bitcoin futures market seems to be flourishing.

The performance is a substantial increase since last quarter when trading volumes reached a low of 2,480 bitcoins and showed a decrease of 69 percent within the span of a week in August. At the time, CME data showed less than 2,500 bitcoins were transacted on the bourse, a drastic fall from the daily average of 8,000 BTC.

Rwanda Hosts First Tantalum-Tracking Blockchain Network

On Oct. 16, in a bid to draw investors by providing a proven source of conflict-free minerals, Rwanda mining authorities announced a blockchain network to track the mineral tantalum – which is used in manufacturing most electronics such as mobile phones.

In All Your Household Electronics

Tantalum, a silvery transition metal, has become ubiquitous in the world of personal electronic devices and is used in everyday items from smartphones and hard drives to video gaming systems. Its utility has caused it to become quite valuable, and the regions where its mined have come under fire for the high human costs reportedly associated with its mining.

Rwanda hopes to change that by partnering with Circulor, a British blockchain startup, and Power Resources Group (PRG), a mining company working in Rwanda and Macedonia, according to Reuters. Their goal is the creation of a blockchain-based tracking system for tantalum that will monitor it “from the pit-face to the refinery.”

Chief Executive of Rwanda’s Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board Francis Gatare said in an interview with Reuters that proving his country was mining tantalum ethically was paramount and that the blockchain could help do it, stating:

“Blockchain is one of the technologies that has demonstrated capabilities of providing a more efficient and effective way of delivering traceability for commodities.”

Tether ‘Didn’t Do a Great Job on Transparency,’ Claims Investor Mike Novogratz

Stablecoin Tether (USDT) should create more “transparency” about its operations, cryptocurrencyinvestor and entrepreneur Michael Novogratz told Bloomberg Oct. 18.

Speaking in an interview, Novogratz, whose Galaxy Digital investment company is active in the cryptocurrency space, said he favored alternative stablecoins pegged to the U.S. dollar with known U.S. banking connections.

“I think Tether didn’t do a great job in terms of creating transparency," he told the publication discussing Tether’s offshore activities.

“The concept of stablecoins makes sense,” Novogratz nonetheless countered, singling out the Winklevoss twins’ Gemini Dollar, which launched in September.

Tether has found itself at the source of controversy this week after volatility caused it to lose its long-time USD peg. At press time, USDT traded around $0.975, at one point dropping as low as $0.91.

The problems came while cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, the CEO of which is also CEO of Tether, faced insolvency rumors, which executives subsequently denied.

In the intervening period, large amounts of Bitfinex’s USDT holdings have been transferred to Tether’s Treasury, leading to fresh suspicions over the exchange’s buoyancy.

Commenting on data from digital asset investment bankers Element Group Thursday, CNBC Cryptotrader host Ran Neuner concluded that Bitfinex had “lost a lot of customers.”

According to the data, Binance is now the number two largest USDT holder, with fellow exchanges Poloniex and Huobi also owning more than Bitfinex.
