Paraguay Backs Plan to Build World’s Largest Bitcoin Mining Farm

The Blockchain Technology Foundation, which is also referred to as the Commons Foundation, has been based in South Korea since its inception, but recently completed talks with the government of Paraguay regarding the establishment of something rather massive: the world’s largest bitcoin mining farm and crypto exchange.

Many readers may be surprised to know that Paraguay is a hub of renewable energy, having all of its electricity produced by hydroelectric dams. Its Itaipu Hydroelectric Power Plant is the “most significant” in the world with an annual output of 103 TW. Only 20 percent of the nation’s power is consumed by the country, and the rest is exported.

Importantly, the power grid is nationalized, and the Commons Foundation has secured a deal with the government for at least five years of competitively priced power — around 80 percent cheaper than any deal the foundation could secure in South Korea.

Additionally, the government is providing five plots of land, a total of 50,000 square meters, for the launch of the “Golden Goose” project, which purportedly comprises the largest bitcoin exchange and cryptocurrency mining outfit the world has ever seen.

Cryptocurrency Respected by Constitutional Revision?

The Commons Foundation intends to fund development of the project on the ICO model, calling it an “initial exchange offering.” Token holders are promised 30 percent of mining profits and 70 percent of exchange profits daily, which will be paid in MicroBitcoin, a little-known cryptocurrency that is tradeable against the US dollar on several exchanges.

“The Paraguay government will actively support the Commons Foundation’s ‘Golden Goose project’ and provide tax breaks through constitutional revisions,” said Hugo Velazquez Moreno, vice president of Paraguay, according to a press release provided to CCN.

The last bit of Moreno’s quote is quite significant. If it turns out to be true and the Paraguay parliament actually passes revisions to the country’s constitution to provide tax breaks — or even simply to acknowledge the existence and legal status of cryptocurrency — that would be a major breakthrough for cryptocurrency on a global level.

No timeline for development of the token offering or the project had been established at time of writing, but CCN will follow the story and post updates as they become available.

XRP Price Reaches $0.29 Again Following Fake Amazon Rumor

The current hourly cryptocurrency charts look incredibly weak, which means most cryptocurrencies will see another retrace in the coming hours. Until that happens, there is still some positive momentum where the XRP price is concerned. Although it hasn’t reclaimed the $0.3 level just yet, there is some positivity among community members. That sheer optimism can usually go a long way in this rather volatile industry. XRP Price Inches Higher It is quite interesting to keep an eye on the value of XRP during this bearish year. This asset has been beaten up quite severely, yet it seems to come up stronger every single time. It is also one of the more resilient markets to date, even though it can’t escape the gravitational pull of the world’s leading cryptocurrency these days. Over the past 24 hours, however, there has been an interesting XRP uptrend on the charts. The 2.2% gain in USD value is promising, as it pushes the value to $0.29 again. This is still a hair short of retaking $0.3, although this current price is seemingly more than acceptable as well. There is also a 0.2 uptick in the XRP/BTC ratio, albeit that is almost negligible. There is another rumor swelling when it comes to XRP. More specifically, some sources – wrongfully -assume there will be a partnership between Ripple and Amazon to push the usage of XRP forward. Since neither company has made any official statements in this regard, it is evident those rumors are nothing more than just that. It creates some excitement, albeit it may not necessarily materialize anytime soon, if ever. What is genuine, however, is the Binance XRP buy wall which materialized just a little while ago. It was valued at a total of $1,1m, which is very significant bullish pressure first and foremost. It is not exactly common for such massive buy orders to stack up on regular exchanges, although this may very well be a fake order to create some artificial momentum. That's a buy wall on @binance of $1.1m right now.

The asset is entering a narrowing channel and will either rise or decline in value in spectacular fashion. So far, the chart leans toward breaking out on the upside, albeit nothing has been set in stone just yet.

While some people would prefer to see a big uptrend materialize prior to New Year’s Eve, that seems highly unlikely. Nothing warrants a big bull run right now especially because the weekdays will usually wipe out any gains sustained throughout the weekend. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.
