South Africa intends to legalize cryptocurrency payments in the coming years and make them an intrinsic part of the local economy. South Africa has announced plans to integrate digital payments and cryptocurrencies into its financial structure to boost economic development for marginalized groups. The announcement was made in the country's 2024 budget, emphasizing the government's efforts to build a digital economy through active collaboration between the public and private sectors to strengthen financial innovation. The budget aims to provide more digital payment services to people in towns and rural areas who mainly use cash. These initiatives will provide local merchants with the infrastructure required for digital transactions, such as internet connectivity and point-of-sale systems. These efforts, starting with a pilot in Gauteng, aim to expand the acceptance and use of digital payments by consumers and businesses. regulatory standards South Africa intends to legalize crypto payments and make them an intrinsic part of the local economy in the coming years, starting with a regulatory framework for the industry. The country made cryptocurrencies an official financial product in 2022, similar to company shares or debt. The Intergovernmental FinTech Working Group (IFWG) will begin publishing comprehensive guidance in 2024, focusing on “stablecoins” and their practical applications. This work will complete a thorough review of the domestic stablecoin environment and develop regulatory recommendations that are consistent with global standards. In 2023, the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) and the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) began registering cryptoasset service providers following FATF-recommended changes to the FIC Act.

Converting cryptocurrency to fiat has never been easy, so the recent collaboration announced between Web3 infrastructure firm Transak and credit card giant Visa is probably welcome news — particularly for users of crypto wallets like MetaMask, Ledger and Trust Wallet. As Cointelegraph reported in late January, “MetaMask users can now sell crypto directly to a Visa card.” Some 40 kinds of crypto can now be converted into local fiat currency at 130 million of Visa’s merchant locations across 145 countries. The numbers alone are daunting, but this may also be an inflection point. “Visa and Mastercard’s reengagement with the crypto sector marks a pivotal turn in the industry’s trajectory,” Antoni Trenchev, co-founder and managing partner at Nexo, told Cointelegraph recently. “It’s big news for people already using crypto to pay for things — now they have more options and, arguably, better options with how to make these types of payments,” Joanna Wasick, partner at law firm BakerHostetler, told Cointelegraph. That said, it wasn’t that long ago that Visa appeared to be stepping back from crypto. Almost exactly a year ago, Reuters declared that “Visa and Mastercard are slamming the brakes on plans to forge new partnerships with crypto firms” — though Visa later took issue with Reuters’ assertion. “This strategic recalibration is not surprising, even with Visa’s distancing itself from crypto a year ago,” said Trenchev last week. “With market uptake, especially with climbing Bitcoin prices, an approved Bitcoin ETF [exchange-traded fund] and an upcoming ‘halving,’ we’re witnessing the nascent stages of a bull market in crypto,” continued Trenchev. Visa and Mastercard don’t want to miss out, arguably. As dramatic and sudden as the announcement may have seemed, it is actually part of a larger process that has been going on for some time. “Visa’s decision to enable real-time card withdrawals is the latest step in the monetization of cryptocurrencies,” William Luther, associate professor in the Department of Economics at Florida Atlantic University, told Cointelegraph. A loss for centralized exchanges? Still, in a dynamic economy — where “creative destruction” is the norm — there are often losers and winners. What does this mean for centralized crypto exchanges like Coinbase and Binance? If Visa can convert a holder’s crypto directly into fiat, why does that individual even need a cryptocurrency exchange? “More users are choosing to directly engage with Web3 through decentralized applications rather than centralized exchanges,” or CEXs, Sami Start, co-founder and CEO of Transak, told Cointelegraph. Asked about the volume of recent crypto withdrawals to Visa cards, Start declined to provide segmented data, but he did say that the firm’s off-ramp transactions — including Mastercard and Visa transactions — “have experienced a growth of approximately 24.27% from December 2023 to January 2024.” Recent: CBDCs: User privacy problem or currency of the future? The threat to centralized crypto exchanges could be exaggerated, however. “The notion that this advancement might disadvantage CEXs and platforms is oversimplified,” said Trenchev. Visa and Mastercard’s involvement in decentralized finance (DeFi) is likely to promote broader cryptocurrency adoption — “which benefits the whole industry.” CEXs still have a play to role. They are “vital in scaling,” continued Trenchev, whose firm was a pioneer in offering a crypto-backed Mastercard in parts of Europe several years back. They provide a degree of reliability, accessibility and security that many DeFi platforms still don’t offer. He added: “The appeal of self-custody in DeFi is clear, but it comes with risks, such as lack of insurance.” Both DeFi and CEXs contribute to the growth of the blockchain ecosystem, Trenchev maintained, and “their successes are mutually beneficial.” Importance of network effects Clearly, there is much more discussion now about crypto as a medium of exchange, which was not the case in the depths of the crypto winter. The biggest hurdle that “would-be” monies face coming out of the starting gate is what economists call “network effects,” explained Luther. They’re not likely to be useful unless your trading partners are willing to use them, and at the outset, few parties are willing to do so, he said, adding: “Intermediaries like Visa have the potential to eliminate the network effect problem. By converting your preferred cryptocurrency on the fly to your trading partner’s preferred money, [they can make a new] medium-of-exchange much more useful.” Visa isn’t the first to take this step. Xapo began offering a Bitcoin (BTC) debit card in 2014. “But Visa supports more cryptocurrencies and boasts a very big network. That’s a big deal,” added Luther. Trenchev seconded this notion that traditional financial firms, including the credit card giants, have been building salients into the crypto world for some time. In 2021, Mastercard purchased CipherTrace — a leading cryptocurrency intelligence company — to enhance its crypto capabilities, while in June 2023, Mastercard announced its Multi-Token Network, an initiative “designed to make transactions within the digital asset and blockchain ecosystems secure, scalable and interoperable,” according to the firm’s executive vice president Raj Dhamodharan. We’re introducing Mastercard Multi-Token Network to make transactions within this ecosystem secure, scalable and interoperable as part of our commitment to support the wider #digital asset industry. https://t.co/Vb1JtnSTjx#blockchain pic.twitter.com/MwkkxbyAuk — Mastercard News (@MastercardNews) June 29, 2023 Visa began supporting the Circle’s USD Coin (USDC) in certain Visa cards in 2020 and followed up in September 2023 by supporting USDC payments settled on the Solana blockchain. Building new connections is what such firms are designed to do. “The core strategy of the payment rails like Visa and Mastercard is to be the network of networks, penetrating any and all venues where exchange takes place,” Lex Sokolin, managing partner at venture capital firm Generative Ventures, told Cointelegraph. “Integrating into the networks of Web3 is the most natural thing for these companies,” said Sokolin, “even less ‘risky’ than it is for asset managers to sell crypto as an investment product.” The question is no longer whether crypto will be a part of mainstream payments and financial services, but rather, how big a part crypto will play, Wasick observed, adding: “So while crypto might still be a relatively small part of payments and financial services — as compared to cash, say — crypto’s dent is getting deeper.” Betraying core principles? Much work still awaits. Some worry about security or loss of privacy. Others fear a growing trend toward financial centralization, which crypto was designed to counter. There are also compliance and tax questions. “I think the primary reason why crypto holders — at least American holders — balk at using crypto for payments is the same as it has been for years: United States tax law,” said Wasick. People don’t want to have to think about tax ramifications every time they purchase a cup of coffee. “But doing it directly with a payment platform like Visa is arguably easier than prior payment methods.” Some crypto purists may view the entry of credit card giants into the space as a further betrayal of the original promise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for decentralized money beyond the control of any single party, company or government. Luther gave voice to something along these lines. While welcoming the support of Visa and Mastercard, “I also think it is important to recognize the shortcomings.” Yes, they will make it easier to use cryptocurrencies to buy things, “but they do so at the expense of some of crypto’s promise.” More specifically: “They tend to reduce — and, in some cases, completely eliminate — the financial privacy and censorship-resistant features of cryptocurrencies.” Those features are important, Luther added, and he hopes that future developments “will make it easier to use cryptocurrencies in routine transactions while preserving a high degree of anonymity.” Instilling confidence? Finally, what does all this mean in terms of adoption? Crypto adoption is still relatively low — at least as a percentage of the world’s population. And those who own it are often “just holding cryptocurrencies in hopes of price appreciation,” Luther added. But there is another way of looking at things. In this view, crypto is already a part of mainstream payments and financial services. “Some institutional investors hold cryptocurrencies. We have access to crypto futures and ETFs,” said Luther, and a soaring number of payment apps are making sending and receiving cryptocurrencies easier than ever. Related: Is a US stablecoin bill just around the corner? Visa’s new collaboration is also significant because of the impact that it could potentially have on people who, until now, have been hesitant to embrace cryptocurrencies — i.e., not just current wallet holders. The giant credit card companies could give crypto fence-sitters the confidence to act. If so, a sort of virtuous cycle could emerge because as “people become more comfortable with payment solutions, those solutions become more ubiquitous,” said Wasick. “There’s still a long way to go,” Luther summarized. “But cryptocurrencies have come a long way already.”

As cryptocurrency funds garner record weekly inflows amid increasing interest in spot Bitcoin ETFs, market participants eye tokens with higher growth potential. Specifically, a few emerging assets are projected to outperform Solana’s impressive spurt by 2024. Speculation on these tokens has been fueled by the shifting dynamics of the digital asset landscape, exemplified by events such as the recent surge of crypto investing. BlastUP Presale: The 1st Launchpad in the Blast Ecosystem is Live!

Additionally, the platform offers  passive income opportunities through staking and farming, underlining its dedication to fostering an equitable and rewarding environment. The BlastUP tokens presale is running, and with each new stage, their value will increase. The current price is locked at $0.04, while the price at the DEX listing is going to be $0.1. That will make a whopping 250% ROI, so now is the perfect time to buy BlastUP tokens at the best price with a 60% discount. >> Snatch Up BlastUP Tokens Now for Maximum Returns! << As BlastUP forges ahead, it remains committed to creating a global hub for the Blast community, supporting early-stage startups. With its community-centric approach and drive for innovation, BlastUP is rapidly gaining traction for the benefit of all participants in this ecosystem. BlastUP’s roadmap extends into 2026, promising the introduction of AI-driven tools and the Community Marketplace, further enriching the ecosystem’s capabilities. The BlastUP token, a cornerstone of the platform, unlocks access to tiered IDO launches, staking rewards, and exclusive loyalty benefits. >> Seize the Chance to Grow Faster and Earn More with BlastUP! << Arbitrum Potential Growth Predictions Highlighted, Amid Market Volatility and Risks The recent developments for Arbitrum bode well for its long-term growth, given its increasing traction. Keeping in mind its current price of $1.85, optimistic predictions suggest a potential rise towards the resistance level of $2.80. This is supported by the 100-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) buy recommendation, reflecting a favorable sentiment in the market. On the contrary, caution needs to be exercised owing to the neutral stance suggested by the RSI and Stochastic indicators. The MACD and 10-day SMA both advise a sell, showing a possible downturn under certain market conditions. In a highly volatile scenario, there’s a chance of falling towards support level 2 at $0.98, exemplifying a more risk-driven outlook. Solana’s Filecoin Integration Could Propel Price Upward Despite Potential Risks Following the integration with Filecoin, Solana’s path to data accessibility might harness an upward pressure on its price. If we observe the current Solana price of $104.22, with resistance levels at $116.41 and $136, the collaboration could prove lucrative by driving SOL towards these higher figures. The 10-day simple moving average pinpointing $110.5, further supports this potential upward trajectory, fostering an optimistic long-term scenario, despite the neutral RSI and Stochastic RSI Fast indications. The flip side, however, still exists in the current market conditions. The MACD signposts a ‘sell’ even with positive news citing Solana’s advancements. Should this integration fail to impress, Solana might move towards its support levels standing at $78.22 and $59.45. Additionally, the 100-day simple moving average, resting at $87.92, suggests a lower-than-current price potential, indicating the presence of short-term risks. Balancing these factors, caution remains paramount in navigating the volatile crypto-sphere. Conclusion With other potential standout tokens such as Arbitrum and Solana in view, BlastUP tops the list in terms of growth estimates and long-term strategies. Integrated within the highly progressive Blast ecosystem, BlastUP enhances the scope of financial technology. Its potential isn’t just rooted in its concept, but also in its execution which takes into consideration project screening and passive income opportunities. The strong community support and future promises of AI-driven tools place BlastUP as the project with the richest potential for growth in the crypto market.

Stablecoin issuer Tether didn’t provide a definitive answer on whether or not it would cease support for the Tron network after its rival Circle ceased minting its stablecoin on the blockchain on Tuesday. “Tether tokens are issued on several blockchains, which are simply transport layers for such tokens,” Tether said in a statement to Cointelegraph when asked for comment about Circle and whether Tether was considering a similar move. “Tether retains the ability to freeze transactions on each directly supported transport layer to accomplish its compliance duties. Nevertheless Tether actively monitors the safety of each one of the supported transport layers to ensure the highest standards to our community,” the firm said. Tether (USDT) is the largest stablecoin with a market capitalization of $97.7 billion, and Circle’s USD Coin (USDC) trails at $28 billion, according to CoinGecko data. The Tron network is home to over 51.8 billion USDT — over half of the nearly 101 billion USDT tokens issued across multiple blockchains, according to Tether’s transparency report dated Feb. 21. An additional nearly $76.2 million is set aside to provide near-term liquidity for the token on the Tron network. A screenshot of Tether’s USDT transparency report cropped to show only USDT’s top three blockchains and its total assets. Source: Tether Tether's comments came in response to an announcement from Circle on Feb. 20, with the firm revealing it was immediately ending the minting of USDC on Tron and would gradually phase out support for the network, saying the decision aligns with “efforts to ensure that USDC remains trusted, transparent and safe.” Last month, a United Nations report said “USDT on the Tron blockchain has become a preferred choice” for cyber fraud and money launders in Southeast Asia due to the “ease, anonymity, and low fees of its transactions.” Tether rebuffed the report, saying the UN ignored USDT’s traceability and the firm’s record of law enforcement collaboration. It highlighted that it froze over $300 million worth of USDT used in crime “within the last few months,” including $225 million worth frozen in November 2023 as part of a United States probe into a Southeast Asian human trafficking syndicate. Related: Y Combinator calls on startups to build stablecoin, metaverse, AI solutions Ethics watchdog group Campaign for Accountability wrote to the United States Congress in November alleging Tron “has been named in multiple international law enforcement actions involving billions of dollars in transactions by alleged organized crime groups and sanctioned entities.” The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission sued the Tron Foundation and founder Justin Sun in March 2023, alleging they offered unregistered securities and conducted manipulative trading, which Sun denies.

Ripple recently published insights from its second annual 2023 worldwide survey on blockchain payment systems, held in collaboration with the US Faster Payments Council (FPC). Through this study, over a hundred payment leaders were involved such as founders and CEOs and technical experts among others. They provided information about the existing landscape as well as future of blockchain in payments. Ripple’s Key findings from the survey Ripple thus made four revelations to the attendees about blockchain in global payments. Real value is being unlocked by blockchain in payments. It is true that top management was bullish on blockchain and cryptocurrency technology as a faster payment solution, as well as the potential of using blockchains for processing payments. However, this has now turned into tangible value. Secondly, while the possible use-cases for blockchain payments can be numerous, there could be differing levels of interests in them. For domestic payments, companies seem to prefer business-to-business (B2B) applications. As background: peer-to-peer (P2P) payments rank second among those testing or using cryptocurrencies at 20%. Consumer-to-business (C2B) has become the least attractive use case for firms developing or piloting distributed ledger technologies, yet some interest exists in C2B for future purposes. Similarly, respondents were enthusiastic about cross-border payment options which minimize friction as well as reduce risk and costs. Thirdly, the fear of cryptocurrency is reducing in most leaders. According to Ripple, approximately 59% of organizations allow or are thinking about enabling crypto payments by the customers. However, 28% of them still contemplate, expressing concerns over dislike for cryptos and risk appetite. Lastly, when it comes to payment decision makers blockchain sentiment is still strong. According to Ripple, Blockchain is still creating value by facilitating faster and more effective, transparent payments as against traditional remittances. The strategy Ripple’s strategy for blockchain technology advocates for its widespread adoption as a viable answer to various compelling use cases about international money transfers, banking and payments.  They consider blockchain as an established means of facilitating currency remittance, boost payment transaction throughput rates while offering viewable payment alternatives not dependent on future modalities. With the expansion of blockchain implementations across the globe, there will be increased discussions concerning blockchains durability, flexibility and applicability in worldwide payments from Ripple.
