Chainlink Surges 15% In the Weekly Charts – Can It Catch Up to Borroe.Finance?

Blockchain Digest

September didn't start as planned for Chainlink ($LINK). Yet it has turned around $LINK’s recent bearish fortunes to record a 15% weekly boost. However, analysts seem more focused on Borroe.Finance ($ROE). The latter focuses solely on providing instant loans to the Web 3 industry. Yet, investors say it can become one of the best DeFi coins available. Are these expectations reasonable? Let's find out. >>BUY $ROE TOKENS NOW<< Chainlink ($LINK) Builds on Rising Partnerships in September Despite recent bearish conditions, Chainlink's ($LINK) network activity has remained high. One of Chainlink's standout features among top altcoins has been its rising partnerships in 2023. Chainlink ($LINK) has continuously sought partnerships to increase its presence in the DeFi space. $LINK was trading at 6.02 on September 3, two days after the market-wide slump. By September 12, $LINK dropped slightly by 1.1% to $5.95. Then, by September 19, $LINK had grown by 15.2% to $6.86. The excitement around those partnerships has increased Chainlink's ($LINK) performance in the current bear market. On September 14, Chainlink announced a partnership with ANZ Bank in Australia. Likewise, on August 30, Chainlink announced successful tokenization tests with the SWIFT inter-banking system. Analysts say $LINK could rise by 19.6% to $8.21 given Chainlink’s growing number of partnerships.

Australia's Leading Bank Partners with Chainlink: Can Arbitrum and Borroe.Finance Compete with $LINK?

Blockchain Digest

Chainlink's institutional adoption is about to rise thanks to its latest partnership with ANZ banking group. Elsewhere, Arbitrum ($ARB) faces stiff competition from competitors like Base Network, causing its TVL to drop. Yet, Borroe.Finance ($ROE) seems to be in the clouds, especially after the recent sell-off in the second presale stage. Will $ROE eventually become a top ICO? Let's find out. >>BUY $ROE TOKENS NOW<< Arbitrum's ($ARB) Falling TVL Shows Competition with Other Layer 2 Networks Arbitrum's total value locked (TVL) has fallen sharply since early August as subsequent market crashes have reduced its network usage. On August 10, Arbitrum's ($ARB) TVL stood at $2.02 billion before falling to $1.17 billion on September 20. The fall follows a major drop in Arbitrum's positive investor sentiment after the market crashes in August and early September. $ARB had dropped to $0.98 on August 17 after the market-wide slump. The crash of September 1 worsened the bear market, causing $ARB to fall by 10.2% to $0.88. Arbitrum's ($ARB) falling TVL could also be down to competition from other layer-2 networks. Since August, Arbitrum has faced competition from Coinbase's Base Network. On September 14, Arbitrum's ($ARB) daily transaction count reached 878,000. For comparison, Base Network's daily transactions reached $1.88 million on the same day. Analysts say $ARB will struggle to recover if Arbitrum faces more competition from its rivals. These analysts conclude that $ARB could drop by 10.2% to $0.79 if the Base Network maintains pressure on Arbitrum.

Via this process, companies can raise funds by selling their invoices to communities that support them. Various perks come with being a member of Borroe.Finance ($ROE). Users enjoy low fees, high discounts, and rewards for being active members. Out of all new ICOs, Borroe.Finance combines a strong real-world utility with its incredible levels of market hype. Within 24 hours of entering Stage 2 of its presale, $ROE has sold 58% of its available tokens. By Stage 3, $ROE would rise by 33.3% from its current price of $0.0150 to $0.0200. So, join while there’s still some supply left at this price. >>BUY $ROE TOKENS NOW<< Australian "ANZ" Bank Explores Chainlink's CCIP On September 15, 2023, the Australian and New Zealand (ANZ) Banking Group announced a partnership with Chainlink ($LINK). The partnership would allow ANZ to use Chainlink's Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol to test the purchase of tokenized assets. The latest Chainlink partnership brought slight positive momentum to $LINK's price. $LINK was trading at $5.93 on September 1 after the market slump. Following the announcement of Chainlink's partnership with ANZ, $LINK rose by 7.2% to $6.36 on September 15. As excitement around the partnership grew, $LINK grew by another 8.6% to $6.91 on September 20.

Tune Insight secures $3.4m as it pushes the boundaries from a data economy to a secure insight economy

Tune Insight

Despite the ever increasing data-dependance for all critical business decisions and the never ending need of data to feed machine learning, companies are prevented from collaborating on and valorizing sensitive data because of cyber risks, fear of losing competitive edge and regulatory constraints. Helping organizations to overcome this hurdle, Tune Insight is today announcing a $3.4m funding round as it helps them automate collective intelligence extraction, reduce data liability, streamline compliance, while re-enforcing data security and privacy. The oversubscribed seed funding round was led by 14Peaks Capital with participation of US-based, Debiopharm and Zurich Cantonal Bank. Existing investors Wingman Ventures also participated in the funding round. Tune Insight was founded in 2021 by Juan R. Troncoso Pastoriza, Frederic Pont, Romain Bouyé and Jean-Pierre Hubaux. The startup is a confidential collaborative analytics and privacy-preserving machine learning solution. The genesis of Tune Insight lies in 2016, when Swiss hospitals came to the founders (then researchers) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) asking if the latest progress in applied cryptography could help solve a challenge they could not overcome, but paramount for personalized healthcare: hospitals wanted to collaborate with each other, but without transferring or revealing their patient data to others. Today, Tune Insight is deployed at University Hospital Zurich, CHUV in Lausanne, Inselspital in Bern, Switzerland, and powers applications such as survival analysis for precision oncology and personalized reference ranges. The latter application enables practitioners to rely on up-to-date reference ranges for their patients, based on collective data of 9 million data points from over 250,000 patients, instead of outdated ranges from a less relevant population. For University Spital Basel, Tune Insight enables the secure training of dermatology machine learning models on skin images across jurisdictions. Tune Insight solutions also bridge the trust gap between payers like Groupe Mutuel with care providers for value-based healthcare (VBHC), and pharmaceutical companies with hospitals for streamlined access to real-word evidence (RWE). In other domains, Tune Insight’s solutions are used by actuaries to facilitate collective risk computations for insurances and in financial services for collective fraud detection, anti-money laundering (AML) and combating financing of terrorism. In cybersecurity, Tune Insight works with managed security service providers (MSSPs) and Armassuisse, the procurement branch of the Swiss military, enabling collective cyber resilience to better defend against cyber attacks. The confidential computing operations supported by the Tune Insight platform range from private set intersection to advanced data analytics to secure federated learning on structured data, including images, which play an increasing role in healthcare and for predictive maintenance. Tune Insight is also working at extending support for privacy-preserving generative AI. Starting from secure data collaborations and privacy-preserving federated learning, Tune Insight is accompanying its customers towards data and model valorization. Juan R. Troncoso Pastoriza, co-founder & CEO of Tune Insight, has been working on privacy-enhancing technologies since 2005 commented: “The data economy falls short of its promise for very valuable, highly confidential or regulated data. In a data-driven world, protecting data not only at rest and in transit, but also in-use, is paramount. Combined with the increasing need for organizations to work together with others, both for collaborations and valorization, and progress towards more protections for citizens and customer data through regulations like GDPR, robust applied cryptography solutions that combine the best privacy-enhancing technologies are of greatest importance in all domains. At Tune Insight, our vision is to transform the paradigm of the data economy into an insight economy that better protects sensitive data, that is more secure, fair, and protective of privacy and confidentiality rights”. Tune Insight will deploy this funding round to strengthen its position for confidential collaborative analytics and machine learning in healthcare, financial services and cybersecurity, strengthen sales and marketing teams, and accelerate international expansion in Europe and the US. Edoardo Ermotti, Founder and Managing Partner of 14Peaks Capital, commented: “Tune Insight stands at the forefront of addressing a critical gap in the realm of confidential collaborative analytics. Their software, situated at the intersection of AI/ML, SaaS, and data security, offers compelling applications across industries, including financial services. This aligns seamlessly with the core values and strategic focus we have at 14Peaks Capital. We are excited about this partnership and look forward to contributing to Tune Insight's next phase of growth, continuing to revolutionize enterprise collaboration on sensitive and regulated data while mitigating the customary associated risks.” Alexander Lange, Founding Partner at remarked: “We believe that AI's bottlenecks won't be software development, tooling or algorithms but access to raw compute and high quality data sets. Tune Insight is making a breakthrough contribution to the latter by building an operating system for model training on confidential data without leakage. For the first time, adversarial stakeholders operating across multiple levels of a given value chain are economically motivated to collaborate. This will lead to significant efficiency gains and better products for their customers.” Pascal Mathis, Founding Partner, Wingman Ventures, added: “Tune Insight is the poster child of a Swiss startup on its way to global success: born on deep technology from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, with a complementary team of experienced international co-founders, supported by the Swiss startup ecosystem, and signing as first customers Swiss companies that are world leaders in healthcare and financial services. Tune Insight is now ready to build on those early successes to accelerate towards becoming a global leader in secure collective data analytics and machine learning across industries. At Wingman, we are proud to have been Tune Insight’s first investor at pre-seed.” About Tune Insight Tune Insight provides confidential collaborative analytics and federated machine learning B2B solutions in healthcare, cybersecurity, financial services and beyond. Our vision is to transform the upcoming paradigm of the data economy into an insight economy that better protects the data, that is more secure, fair, and protective of privacy and confidentiality rights.

Justin Sun Prioritizes Security: User Assets Are Sacred and Inviolable


Justin Sun, a member of the HTX Global Advisory Board, participated in a live broadcast titled "Talk to Justin Sun about Crypto Safety Issues'' on September 26. This live interview was conducted simultaneously on HTX's (previously Huobi) Twitter Space and HTX Live. Justin Sun shared his insights on security concerns related to cryptocurrency exchanges and responded to the recent security incident at HTX. To start, Justin Sun gave a brief recap of the recent cyberattack on HTX. On September 24, 2023, at around 6 PM Singapore time, HTX detected a hack and took immediate actions, which included rapidly changing the hot wallet address, implementing the real-time monitoring mechanism, and establishing the SAFU fund. Through these efforts, the exchange has ensured the protection of user assets and information. HTX, as emphasized by Justin Sun, managed to promptly resolve almost all issues within 24 hours following the attack. Users remained largely unaware of the incident, but it was indeed an intense battle. According to reports, HTX has fully covered the losses, ensuring that users will not incur any losses due to this incident. The platform is operating normally, and all user assets remain unaffected. Moreover, HTX has labeled the hacker's ETH addresses and proposed a 5% white-hat incentive ($400,000) to encourage the hacker to return the stolen funds. If the hacker returns the funds within 7 days, HTX will offer them a position as a security consultant for the exchange. Otherwise, HTX will provide the information to the authorities for the hacker's prosecution. Additionally, HTX is collaborating with professional security teams, blockchain institutions, and top-notch exchanges like Binance to trace the hacker's identity and the whereabouts of the stolen funds. While the exchange cannot disclose the specifics of the ongoing investigation, it is committed to ensuring that the hacker faces the full legal consequences they deserve if they do not return the stolen funds. Justin Sun stated, "We encourage white hat ethical hacking and are confident in our ability to recover the funds. HTX has a proven track record of collaborating with authorities to apprehend hackers and will not tolerate any hacking activities. Even if users not affiliated with HTX have had their assets compromised, we will initiate charitable efforts to assist them in recovering their losses." Summarizing the discussion, Justin Sun underscored the costliness of the security lesson learned and the commitment to excel in this domain. He emphasized that the recent hack was a valuable experience for him and his team, prompting HTX to reassess and enhance its security. HTX will take concrete steps to ensure that user assets on the platform remain at the forefront of industry standards. HTX will introduce more security tools and technologies for the timely detection and prevention of potential threats in the future. Collaboration with leading security audit firms for regular audits and swift issue resolution is another facet of their strategy. Lastly, additional security updates, including updates to custodians or institutions, will be implemented. Considering the multiple security incidents that have occurred in the cryptocurrency industry, Sun remarked, "Past experiences have taught us that security is an ongoing race, where we must continually adopt measures to ensure the security of user assets and fortify our security defense." Addressing community doubts regarding the incident being a marketing stunt orchestrated by HTX, Justin Sun categorically dismissed such claims. He affirmed that while HTX has previously hosted attention-grabbing marketing events, the platform's unwavering commitment to security and the sanctity of user assets means they will never exploit a security incident as a marketing ploy. Sun continued to reiterate the importance of security throughout the live stream, emphasizing, "Security is an eternal concern, and we will always prioritize the safety of user assets." About HTX Founded in 2013, HTX has evolved from a crypto exchange into a comprehensive ecosystem of blockchain businesses that span digital asset trading, financial derivatives, wallets, research, investment, incubation and other areas. HTX serves millions of users worldwide, with a business presence covering over 160 countries and regions across five continents.
