Binance to Sell Cryptocurrencies at Newsagents in Australia

Binance, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange by volume, has announced the launch of Binance Lite Australia, a platform that will allow local residents to buy cryptocurrency at more than 1,300 newsagents across the country. Currently, the new cash-to-crypto service supports only purchases of bitcoin core (BTC) with Australian dollars (AUD) but other digital coins and fiat currency options will be added in the future.

To acquire the crypto, customers will have to place an order online and then deposit the cash at the nearest newspaper kiosk. But before they can do so, they will have to provide their personal details and pass account verification on the website of the platform, binancelite.com. Verified users will be able to place their orders and receive the coins within minutes, the exchange promised in a blog post. Binance Lite Australia will charge a 5 percent fee for the service.

Token Launchpad Huobi Prime to Go Live on Tuesday

Digital asset exchange Huobi announced the launch date of its new token listing platform. Huobi Prime will go live next Tuesday, March 26, the company revealed in a tweet this week. The first campaign based on Huobi’s launchpad will be held by a project called TOP Network, which will distribute 1.5 billion TOP tokens among its users in three 30-minute rounds.

According to the announcement, Huobi Prime will allow crypto projects to trade their coins immediately in a model described by the exchange as “direct premium offering.” Tokens issued through the platform, which is an alternative to Binance Launchpad, may be listed in the future on Huobi Global and Hbus in trading pairs with USDT, BTC, ETH, and KRW.

Aeternity Invests in Micropayment Platform Satoshipay

Aeternity, a project developing a blockchain protocol for smart contracts with open code, has acquired a stake in Satoshipay. According to a press release, the deal was sealed during the latest financing round for the micropayment service. Satoshipay will now be able to integrate Aeternity nanopayment solutions and offer its users faster transactions.

Axel Springer SE, one of the largest digital content companies in Europe which runs news outlets such as Upday, Die Welt, Bild, and Business Insider, will be among the first users of the new services offered by Aeternity and Satoshipay. Its users will be able to pay for the content with cryptocurrency via the Satoshipay wallet.

Nvidia to Clear Mining GPU Inventory

Video card manufacturer Nvidia is expecting to soon clear the excess inventory accumulated in anticipation of high demand for cryptocurrency mining equipment. The company believes it will manage to achieve that during Q1 of 2019, according to comments made by its CFO Colette Kress during a meeting with investors in California this past Tuesday, Bloomberg reported. The stockpile of unsold graphics processing components was created when the sales of chips dropped last year following the decline in cryptocurrency prices.
