Blockchain Technology Is Disrupting Online Financial Trading And Eliminating Fraud Broker-less trading markets for forex, commodities, stocks, cryptos and other assets being launched on the blockchain are emerging as a kinder, fairer and potentially more lucrative market for traders. Decentralized exchanges are not only eliminating broker fees but also solving the main challenge of online trading and cryptocurrency exchanges: a lack of liquidity. An alternative to trading exchanges, prediction markets are like manna from heaven, with at least one blockchain trading platform providing deep liquidity pools.

What all blockchain trading platforms have in common is the elimination of the broker. Traditionally, trading has been a zero sum game. When brokers match orders, they take the other side of the trade. If the trader wins, the broker loses, and vice versa. This model gives brokers an incentive to manipulate fees and trading outcomes, and delay payments. In the foreign exchange markets, 60–70 percent of retail traders lose money, and up to 80 percent abandon FX trading within a year.

Eliminating the middleman reduces all forms of financial fraud, a multi-billion dollar problem in a range of trading verticals every year. Both Blockchain exchanges and peer-to-peer prediction markets are designed to dis-intermediate the broker. Blockchain technology removes B-Book brokerages and replace them with immutable smart contracts. Blockchain technology is addressing a major need with prediction market platforms by preventing many forms of global financial fraud. SPECTRE, short for speculative tokenised trading exchange, is a dramatically different approach to the classic, fraud-ridden financial trading model where brokers regularly tamper with platforms, engaging in unethical behavior with financial traders and clients. Examples of this behavior include tampering with price feeds, slippage, freezing withdrawals and trading on the client’s behalf without permission. Instances of fraud are rife across the binary options, forex and online trading industry with regulators across the globe struggling to contain the problem.

SPECTRE, built ground up on the Ethereum blockchain, removes the financial broker out of the equation entirely and through the creation of novel, private escrow smart contracts along with a decentralized, autonomous liquidity pool, removes the need for deposits as well. This means that traders around the globe can engage with the financial markets, be it binary/digital options or trading FX and other asset classes, without human intervention. The Ethereum blockchain allow SPECTRE to disrupt the classic trading model and remove the broker out of the picture entirely. The conditional, decentralized and autonomous liquidity pool that is owned by the public (not SPECTRE) and rewards the public in the form of dividends, brings a new era of transparency into global financial trading. Traditional financial trading scenarios see traders trade directly against the broker’s balance sheet, creating a range of conflicts of interest and moral hazards. Financial fraud in trading is a multi-billion dollar problem each year. The Spectre platform solves this problem.

Ants Accelerate – Alibaba’s Blockchain Arm Goes into Overdrive

Ant Group, the blockchain and e-pay subsidiary of Chinese tech giant Alibaba, is accelerating its business operations with the launch of a new cross-border trade blockchain platform, stepping up its bid to go public – and has sealed a key deal with the busiest container port on the planet. Ant, which also operates the Alipay e-payment platform, has dubbed the platform Trusple, and will debut it on the Ant-developed Antchain blockchain network, the company said in their press release. The firm will allow exporting and importing firms to place trading orders on Trusple, which will then automatically create smart contracts, including logistics-related information – allowing banks to process payments on the network.”Trusple was designed to solve problems for SMEs and financial institutions involved in cross-border trading,” Guofei Jiang, President of Advanced Technology Business Group, Ant Group, was quoted as saying in the announcement. Global e-commerce sites, including Alibaba’s AliExpress, could make use of the platform, Reuters said. It added that a “blockbuster” initial public offering (IPO) is slated for next month, with “plans to list simultaneously in Hong Kong and on Shanghai’s tech-heavy STAR Market next month.” The Ant listing, the news agency added, could be the world’s IPO, “surpassing oil giant Saudi Aramco’s USD 29.4bn float” in December last year. Ant is aiming to generate USD 35m from its own IPO bid. But the Ant action does not stop there. Per Shanghai Securities News, the Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) also wants in. The group operates the Port of Shanghai, the busiest container port in the world for the past decade or so, per World Shipping Council figures. The new deal will see SIPG work with the Ant Group on a number of blockchain-powered logistics and shipping projects, including smart port construction drives, cross-chain interoperability solutions for firms and ports that operate on different blockchain networks and work on “solutions that provide the efficient flow of digital assets and enable multi-party collaboration with financial institutions.”Meanwhile, as reported earlier this month, Alibaba has published 10 times more patents than IBM this year alone.___Learn more: Ant Group Explains What its 100m per Day ‘Digital Assets’ Uploads Are
