1.German Stock Exchange to Launch Crypto Trading Platform .


STOCK EXCHANGEThe second largest stock exchange in Germany, the Stuttgart Exchange, in partnership with Solaris Bank’s Blockchain Factory, is pressing ahead with plans for a cryptocurrency exchange that is “scheduled to launch in the first half of 2019.” According to Solaris Bank’s latest press release, BTC and ETH trading will initially be available to both retail and institutional investors. An integrated ICO platform is also under development and for trading in any tokens issued in ICO, will also be possible in the secondary market.


Alexander Hoptner, CEO of the Stuttgart Exchange said “With its combination of technology and banking expertise, SolarisBank is a great partner for us to offer central services along the value chain for digital assets… to take the trade in cryptocurrencies and tokens to a new level and set standards in transparency and reliability.”


2.Zebpay Exchange Now Live in 21 European Countries.



Zebpay announced on Tuesday that its European exchange is now live. “We have recently expanded our global footprints in Europe with our exchange and wallet enabling crypto-to-crypto trading,” the company wrote, adding:


We are live with euro deposits/withdrawals and trading in 21 countries (Malta, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden, Austria) in Europe for users and corporate investors.


Customers need to sign up for an account and go through Zebpay’s know-your-customer (KYC) procedures. “After successful KYC and bank verification,” customers can then deposit euros into their Zebpay euro wallets via bank deposits, the exchange detailed. They can also trade BTC against the euro on the Zebpay exchange and withdraw fiat from the wallets. “We will soon add more digital assets that can be traded with euro,” the company wrote.


3.Razer Offers Rewards to Gamers For Running Cryptocurrency Miner


RazerRazer is raising some eyebrows with a new way you can earn reward points from the company: It wants you to install a cryptocurrency miner on your high-powered gaming PC. On Wednesday, the vendor announced Razer SoftMiner, a desktop app that will let the company harness your idle machine for blockchain-building purposes. In return, you’ll get Razer Silver credits, which you can redeem to obtain a keyboard, mouse or T-shirt from the company’s digital store.


According to Razer, consumers can generate 500 Razer Silver credits or more in a day over the SoftMiner app. LYou’ll need 51,000 credits to get the vendor’s DeathAdder gaming mouse. Razer’s Huntsman Elite keyboard, on the other hand, goes for 280,000 credits. Assuming you generated 500 credits a day, that means you’d need to let the Softminer app run for 560 days to obtain the Huntsman Elite keyboard, which retails for $199.


4.Opera launches its cryptocurrency-oriented browser for the decentralized web




Opera is finally rolling out its blockchain-oriented browser specifically designed for surfing and interacting with the decentralized web (also known as Web 3.0).


Today at Hard Fork Decentralized in London, the company announced the browser, which comes with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet, is now available for Android. This makes Opera the first mainstream browser that comes with cryptocurrency and blockchain features.


“Our hope is that this step will accelerate the transition of cryptocurrencies from speculation and investment to being used for actual payments and transactions in our users’ daily lives,” Opera executive VP Krystian Kolondra said.
