NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cryptocurrencies aren't just the future of finance, they're here - now. Cities are now getting in on the crypto action, most notably Miami and its MiamiCoin.

The coin is a new way of funding government projects and that elected leaders can use to improve quality of life for city residents.

An Industry Moving the Decentralized, Freedom-Focused Agenda Forward
Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) is one of the biggest names and most popular exchanges in the cryptocurrency sector. On September 15, Coinbase filed an application with the National Futures Association to register as a futures commission merchant. The company wants to begin trading cryptocurrency derivatives, and this is a critical first step. Cryptocurrency futures and options are a big market, and Coinbase has not included the option in its product offerings yet. This changes the company's range of products and services to branch out and capitalize on what has become a large market.
Major software companies like MicroStrategy (NASDAQ:MSTR) are also building large cryptocurrency holdings as they realize the benefits of decentralized finance. The company recently purchased an additional $250 million in Bitcoin (BTC) increasing its total holdings to approximately $5.1 billlion. The company's strategy is to buy Bitcoin with excess cash and simultaneously develop the software business. This latest purchase of 5,050 coins at an average price of $48,099 makes MicroStrategy the biggest corporate investor in cryptocurrency.
Riot Blockchain Inc. (NASDAQ:RIOT) is one of the industry leaders in bitcoin mining and hosting, and its operational update is showing investors it has continued to increase production. Bitcoin production for August 2021 was 441 BTC, versus just 80 BTC in the same month the year before. The company is focusing on increasing production this year, and has already produced a total 2,051 BTC, a 221% increase over the same production period in 2020 of 639 BTC.
Mobilum Technologies Inc. (OTC:MBLMF) is breaking new records, announcing Total Transaction volumes of $7.7 million in August 2021, a 44% jump from September.
