(Bloomberg) -- Blockchain.com, which has created more than 40 million digital-asset wallets, is moving into the trading side of cryptocurrencies with a new exchange.The Pit, a London-based marketplace, will offer Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Tether, Litecoin and Paxos. Customers can deposit funds immediately, with trading beginning soon. The idea came from the the boom-and-bust cycle of 2017 and 2018, when exchange performance was spotty at best, Blockchain.com Chief Executive Officer Peter Smith said in an interview.“After that cycle we stepped back and said, ‘What do we need to do differently next time?’ That’s when you start reinvesting,” Smith said. “We wanted to build a Wall Street or a Chicago-level matching engine,” he said, referring to software that pairs buyers and sellers.Exchanges for the $248 billion cryptocurrency market have a woeful record of hacks, thefts, fraud and mismanagement stretching to 2014 when 850,000 Bitcoins were stolen from Mt. Gox, the largest Bitcoin site at the time. Services to keep digital coins safe, known as custody, have been slow to develop.The Pit will execute orders in under 50 microseconds, compared with 200 to 500 milliseconds at most crypto exchanges, Smith said. He declined to identify any banks working with Blockchain.com, saying only that lenders will allow customers to deposit U.S. dollars, euros and British pounds on to the exchange.New Crypto Exchanges Don’t Want (to Hold) Your Money: QuickTakeThe exchange’s servers will reside in the Equinix LD4 facility in London, allowing connections to most of the world’s largest banks and investors.To help build the market, Blockchain.com brought in Nicole Sherrod as head of trading products. She spent more than 20 years in online brokerages and helped build the Think or Swim trading system at TD Ameritrade Holding Corp.“I thought I was retired,” Sherrod said in an interview. Then, looking at the crypto marketplace, “I realized there was a tremendous opportunity to do work there.”Sherrod said she watched as order books dried up and market-makers stepped away during the intensely volatile markets of 2017 when “reliability was a big issue, and then liquidity.” Since then, there hasn’t been much news about digital exchanges improving their systems and robustness, she said.Blockchain.com claims that 25% of all Bitcoin transactions originate with one of its wallets. The company will encourage users to keep their digital coins in their wallets rather than on the exchange, Smith said.“The promise of crypto is direct bearer assets” that form “the basis of a self-sovereign economy,” Smith said. The exchange is “an investment in the future of the crypto market.”To contact the reporter on this story: Matthew Leising in Los Angeles at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Michael J.

While efforts to fortify inter-connection services and networks business will aid Equinix's (EQIX) Q2 earnings, declining average price per cabinet highlights its vulnerability to pricing pressure.
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Hong Kong’s ambitions to be an international data-center hub are a potential casualty of the city’s mass protests. Privacy breaches stemming from a summer of clashes between demonstrators and police threaten to erode confidence in the city as a base for foreign companies to set up storage facilities. To alleviate concerns, the government needs to improve security and regulation in the handling of sensitive data.Last month, dozens of protesters were arrested after being treated in the emergency ward of a public hospital following battles with riot police. The city’s Hospital Authority subsequently denied leaking patient data – despite the discovery of an internal document labeled “for police” that listed names of protesters seeking medical treatment, according to the South China Morning Post. At around the same time, the personal information of more than 800 police officers was hacked and released online.Data centers are a fast-growing market, valued at $31 billion globally in 2017 and forecast by Zion Market Research to grow 14% annually to reach $105 billion by 2026. In Hong Kong, total revenue for data centers is expected to reach $1 billion this year, with three firms sharing 55% of the market: Japan’s NTT Communications Corp.; Sunevision Holdings Ltd., a unit of local developer Sun Hung Kai Properties Ltd.; and Silicon Valley-based Equinix Inc.The Hong Kong government has targeted the industry for growth, and the city has many advantages that make it an attractive location. The former British colony has a common-law legal system that’s recognized and trusted across the Western world, and its data-privacy laws are among the strictest in Asia. In addition, Hong Kong sits at the mouth of the Greater Bay Area, a grouping of 11 cities with a population of 69 million and annual GDP of $1.5 trillion that China plans to develop into an economic bloc. For multinationals, storing data in Hong Kong bypasses red tape and potential legal minefields in mainland China.Besides its legal system and geographic position, Hong Kong is well equipped with a highly reliable power supply – averaging only 1.5 minutes of unplanned power outages per year, according to one of the city’s two main electricity providers. This compares with 17 to 28 minutes in other major cities such as New York, Sydney and London. Consistent power enables strong broadband capacity and an established fiber-optic network. Another boast is Hong Kong’s low latency transfer in cloud computing – the speed at which information travels from place to place.The government has supported construction of data centers, by offering large financial incentives for companies to set up shop and specifying three locations to build such facilities. Unlike technology hubs such as Silicon Valley, these locations were intentionally set aside to accommodate the sector – no small feat, considering the diminishing supply of available land. Last year, Sunevision bought the last designated plot with a winning bid of $697 million – 45% higher than the estimate of Colliers International Group Inc., the South China Morning Post reported.The sale highlighted the perceived growth prospects for Hong Kong's data-center business. Companies such as Nvidia Corp. and Digital Realty Trust Inc. are also eyeing Hong Kong for expansion opportunities (though the city’s land shortages and red-hot property market may make that easier said than done).These advantages may count for little unless the government sustains confidence in the ability and willingness of authorities to protect data privacy. The leaking by hospitals of protesters’ identities – an apparently blatant privacy breach – caused widespread unease. In the case of the police hack, eight people were eventually charged with dishonest intent and criminal destruction. Still, the ease with which the intrusion took place shocked politicians and the public. Fears of further breaches could scare businesses away.Hong Kong needs to strengthen its data-security laws or risk international companies abandoning the city for more privacy-oriented locations, according to Padraig Walsh, a partner at legal firm Tanner De Witt who focuses on fintech and data privacy. Having been in the vanguard when it passed the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance in 1996, Hong Kong has been overtaken by jurisdictions such as the European Union, which adopted its General Data Protection Regulation in 2017, Walsh said.To remain competitive, the government should consider amending the Hong Kong ordinance to require data users to report breaches and to give the Privacy Commissioner stronger enforcement powers. Singapore will update its privacy laws next year, according to Walsh. If Hong Kong doesn’t adapt, companies will go elsewhere.(Ronald W.
