We are excited to give you a new edition of GateHub Staff Picks. This month was special for us with the launch of PayID. We also saw some cool stuff in the legal/compliance department, a podcast with Stefan Thomas and we have a movie coming up about Satoshi Nakamoto. Have a look and have fun!
From our Compliance team
Canada’s cryptocurrency firms were recognised as Money Service Businesses (MSB) as of June 1st. This adds legitimacy to Canadian cryptocurrency firms via regulations and gives relief to the previously unregulated market of virtual currency dealers there.
Chainalysis, arguably, the leading blockchain analysis platform has added support for Dash (DASH) and Zcash (ZEC), two prominent privacy coins. This featured article also contains an explanation of Dash and Zcash privacy features which is a must read for any cryptocurrency enthusiast.

Stefan Thomas, the CEO of Coil, talks about the fundamental problems small content creators are facing on the internet and how to enable value to move from consumer directly to creators, the infamous 402 Payment Required error that is “Reserved for later use”, blockchain, unopinionated payment networks and more.
Decrypted, a dark comedy movie, written by Mick Sands and directed by Tom Sands is being filmed. Centered on Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, who is kidnaped and tortured for information by the NSA. It’s exciting to see a movie by enthusiasts for enthusiasts filmed on the topic of cryptocurrency.
