Kodak announces KODAKOne blockchain based platform for licensing of photographs
Shares of Kodak doubled Jan 9th after announcing plans to provide photographers with the registration and licensing of work along with a token offering. Along with WENN Digital in a licensing partnership, the plan is to offer KODAKCoin as part of the KODAKOne images rights management platform.
Kodak also announced it’s KashMiner where the bitcoins it generages will be split between the company and customers. Very little additional information on the specifics of this initiative are available at this time.
Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan has come around in 2018
One of the biggest Bitcoin critics, Jamie Dimon in an interview with Fox Business news this past Tuesday says he might have erred when he criticized bitcoin and was quoted as saying “The blockchain is real.”
Jamie was also quoted as saying, “You can have cryptodollars in yen and stuff like that. ICOs, you got to look at everyone individual”. When questioned more about ICOs he said, “I’m not interested that much in the subject at all”.
Well, that didn’t take long! In late 2017 Jamie was quoted as saying “if your stupid enough to buy it, you’ll pay the price for it one day” and “this is the last time I’m ever going to answer questions about bitcoin because I don’t really care”.
How quickly things change in the crypto space.
TD Ameritrade wants to bring Millennials to the Cryptocurrency trading market
JJ Kinahan, TD Ameritrade’s Chief Market Strategist was quoted in an interview this past Monday as saying “Maybe cryptocurrency isn’t the product I’d like people to start with, but this is the greatest opportunity we’ve had in the market to get people who weren’t traditionally interested in the market.
An October 2017 survey by Blockchain Capital showed 30% of respondents aged 18-34 reported they would prefer to own $1,000 of bitcoin rather than government bonds. Also, 38% of male millennials would rather own $1,000 of bitcoin rather than stocks.
Back in December 2017, TD Ameritrade started qualified clients to trade CBOE’s bitcoin futures.
This week, The New York Stock Exchange has filed for SEC approvals to list five Exchange Traded Funds tied to bitcoin futures with 2 being “bear’s for investors who think bitcoin futures will drop and 3 being “bull’s” for investors who think bitcoin futures will go up.
