Huawei adds a bitcoin wallet to its app store even as China cracks down on trading

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Huawei has released a bitcoin wallet on its app store for the first time, allowing Chinese consumers to hold virtual currencies even as Beijing steps up regulation on the nascent industry.
  • The Shenzhen-based Chinese smartphone maker has teamed up with BTC.com, an online platform for cryptocurrency investors, miners and developers, to add BTC.com’s crypto wallet to Huawei’s new AppGallery.
  • Beijing banned initial coin offerings (ICOs) a form of fundraising for cryptocurrency start-ups last year, and has closed down domestic bitcoin exchanges.
  • Cryptocurrencies have recently expanded the human understanding of digital economy at a large scale, Jaime Gonzalo, vice president of Huawei Mobile Services, said in a statement Friday.
  • From our leadership position in China, the tip of the spear of mobile payments, we expect to see massive growth in global cryptocurrency adoption habits in the near future.

Billionaire Bill Gates once got bitcoin as a birthday present — here’s what he did with it

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Bill Gates has used his $91.8 billion net worth to invest in all sorts of moonshots and technologies, from a start-up that streams video of Earth to a company growing meat in labs.
  • But there’s one tech darling Gates isn’t planning to back: Bitcoin.
  • Somebody gave me some for my birthday, Gates laughs during an interview with Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger.
  • A few years later, I thought, ‘Hey I’m going to sell that.’
  • Last year, bitcoin’s price shot from below $1,000 at the beginning of 2017 to over $19,000 in December, before falling in early 2018 to trade around $9,100 Tuesday, according to CoinDesk.
