Paribus. The Hidden Utility.

Despite all the diligence, and dedication of project founders and development teams working day and night in crypto bad actors continuously steal the limelight. It only takes one flaw to lose hundreds of millions of dollars and with such high stakes, no one can afford to be reckless with security. It’s the hidden utility within all of the protocols and websites we interact with on a daily basis. Whether it’s in Web2 or Web3 security is an essential element that we usually only pay attention to when it’s too late.

Paribus 2023 Roadmap

A Bright Future Ahead As the new year begins most people use this time to review their past achievements and recalibrate their aims for the future. At Paribus we’re no different, and this gives us the opportunity to add more details to our roadmap based on our latest developments. The first thing to note about our updated roadmap is that there are no dates. In our journey, we’ve found that giving public dates can often be counter-productive. Although we use dates as internal targets, these are often flexible and adapt

Paribus: Learning to Trust Yourself.

The idea of self-custody is as old as the hills. Whether it’s stuffing bank notes under a mattress or keeping gold bullion in a safe, it’s always given people equal amounts of fear and freedom. It’s only now though, with cryptocurrencies, that people can have secure and portable self-custody of their assets. Self-custody is as integral to the ethos of crypto as decentralization and peer-to-peer transactions. These concepts give blockchain technology the ability to create a new kind of asset ownership that has never existed before. As Deniz, our CEO

Regulators at the Ready

Just as bull markets have narratives, so do bear markets, and the overriding narrative of this year has been regulation. Time and again the media has conflated a lack of regulation in crypto with the failures we’ve seen. It’s easy for people to conclude that as soon as regulation comes to crypto, investors will have confidence and flood back into the market. If that was true you would expect to see the stock market flooded with liquidity, but tech stocks are experiencing similar conditions to crypto. Not only is there

China’s Walled Garden

Continuing our theme of speaking with people in the world of finance and technology we asked insiders at ByteDance in Shanghai their views about blockchain technology. The results give some useful insight into one of the likely narratives of the next bull run. In previous cycles narratives have ranged from Bitcoin being digital gold to NFTs being the cutting edge of the art scene. These topics pull new users into the space and with their added liquidity the value of the market begins to rise. The present decline in value

Passport of the Future

A few years ago if you were to talk about governments being able to control your money and impose travel restrictions on their citizens most people would roll their eyes and ask where your tin foil hat was. These days however the dystopian future dreamt of by science fiction authors is rapidly becoming a reality. When it comes to dystopian visions of society and governmental overreach, most people’s first thoughts turn to China. Although they may be ahead of the curve at the moment, their path to a digital future

Organized Chaos

This week saw another round of interest rates hikes by central banks to try and control inflation. With all the talk of a potential pivot in monetary policy, interest rates continued their parabolic rise by 75 basis points in the UK, and the US. Initially the Federal Reserve’s announcement of a 0.75% interest rate increase caused markets to jump because this was the rise they’d been expecting and had already priced in. However, in the subsequent press conference the tone was more hawkish which caused the markets to drop a

Paribus Network Update

For the past few weeks our MVP has been live on the public testnet and just two weeks ago we launched our bug bounty program. Already we’ve had some amazing feedback which has helped us tweak the platform ahead of its mainnet launch. While everyone usually hates bear markets because of the devastation they inflict on portfolios, as a project the additional time and space they give has proved invaluable. Not only have we been able to continue our development in a robust, methodical way, we’ve also had the time

Drawing Parallels

For many people in crypto, the way that regulators are approaching the industry is unique and can at times seem unnecessarily adversarial. For those with prior experience in nascent industries, it bears remarkable similarities to how other technologies have seen regulations imposed on them.
