在 1,500 Bitcoin ATMs to be deployed in Argentina in response to rampant inflation
According to representatives from Athena Bitcoin and Odyssey Group, 到年底 2018 Argentina will be host to 30 Bitcoin ATMs. That number will jump to about 150 in Q1 2019, and to more than 1,500 到年底 2019. This crypto expansion into the South American country comes amid an economic crisis that has seen the value of it’s national currency, the peso, sink dramatically.
US based Athena Bitcoin, a company that specializes in the development and operation of cryptocurrency ATMs, launched Argentina’s first just a month ago in Buenos Aires. Argentina is an ideal location for Bitcoin ATMs because inflation of it’s national currency — which has lost more than 50% of its value against the dollar so far in 2018 — is expected to exceed 40% by year’s end. Athena Bitcoin’s operations manager for Argentina, Dante Galeazzi, said from their perspective, this unfortunate economic situation presents a massive growth opportunity for the cryptocurrency industry.

美國銀行認為 blockchain 可能係7美元的市場
美國銀行 研究分析人士預測, blockchain 技術可以代表一個多億美元的行業沿著道路, 並為亞馬遜和微軟等龍頭企業帶嚟特別嘅好處。. The analysts predicted the total addressable blockchain market would eventually hit $7 億, but there was not a particular timeline for the market growth since the technology is not yet widely used.
CNBC reported that the market estimate was predicated on the assumption that 2% of servers would one day be used to run blockchain. In a note to clients on Tuesday, Bank of America research analyst Kash Rangan wrote that companies like Amazon could integrate blockchain to streamline retail operation and enhance cloud computing operations.

Bitcoin startup Acinq raises $1.7M to double down on Lightning
Lightning isn’t just a big hit with developers, the promising Bitcoin technology is now attracting a little attention from investors. Acinq, one of the leading startups working on the lightning network, a top-level layer aiming to boost the number of transactions Bitcoin can support, has closed a $1.7 million funding round led by Serena Capital, with participation from Talend co-founder Bertrand Diard, Sebastien Lucas, Alistair Milne and Snapcar founder Yves Weisselberger.
As a result of the funding, Lightning Labs is no longer the only startup solely dedicated to lightning that’s been able to rake in money for its efforts. Since it launched a few years back, the Paris-based company has become one of the most pivotal in a broader push to build and design lightning. It has built Eclair, one of three lightning software implementations alongside those by Lightning Labs and Blockstream, as well as Eclair Wallet, the most popular lightning wallet to date. Acinq co-founder and CEO Pierre-Marie Padiou said. “With this raise, we’re very excited to be able to do a lot more with more resources. We’ll be able to make even more cool services for lightning. This is not only good for us but for lightning in general and for pushing adoption forward.”
