LAKE STEVENS, WA: Upheaval LLC, innovators of patent-pending blockchain technology the Weave, today announced a strategic partnership with Chiropractic clinic Naturally Chiropractic Family Wellness Center. With the partnership, Upheaval will create a Proof-of-Concept implementation of the Weave, and demonstrate how its unique blockchain technology can secure and streamline healthcare processes for the clinic, their billing processes and reporting, and for their patients.
“We’re designing and building the Weave for a massive global scale. That begins with listening to customers who will use it every day, and clearly understanding how it will make their lives better,” said David Iseminger, Upheaval’s CEO. “With a close customer partnership during these early design and development phases, we can quickly iterate to ensure a customer-centric implementation. It enables us to be extremely agile and responsive, and to guide our customers to where they want to be – in a better place, with innovative technology that helps their businesses be more effective, and thrive.”
Part of the strategic partnership includes refining a handheld app for patients, that provides better insights to their care, in ways that are more accessible to them, and portable. “We want patients, and people, to have access and control over their medical history. When they move, their records should easily move with them.”
“We’re excited about the partnership,” said Dr. Nicole Morin, co-owner of Naturally Chiropractic. “There’s a whole host of benefits that the Weave’s blockchain software could bring, including securing and streamlining paperwork. I spend as much as 20% of my time in administrative work, even with the software systems we currently have. That time would be better spent with patients.” Dr. Dan Morin, also co-owner, added, “Patients would really benefit from having access to the services we’ve provided, and what they can do at home to enhance their health and healing. Connecting our services with an app that patients could securely access would help the partnership between patient and provider, and the results that come from that successful partnership.”
“We believe the Weave can deliver on the promise of blockchain for healthcare, with a solution that’s secure yet accessible, immensely scalable, and high performing,” said David Iseminger, Upheaval’s CEO. “By understanding in-the-moment patient and doctor interactions, insurance billing, government oversight, and how patients would best use our app for their records, we ensure that scalability to large offices and corporations is grounded in real customer needs, in real-life activities.”
With the partnership, Upheaval and Naturally Chiropractic will partner to deliver a blockchain solution that integrates with their existing systems, streamlines their processes, elevates their patients’ wellness, and delivers big data analytics. As the Weave scales to other clinics, large providers, and global healthcare solutions, subscribers to the Weave will realize a better healthcare experience, for their organization and for their patients.

CFTC charges crypto futures trader for failure to register in the US
On Monday, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission filed charges against Laino Group for soliciting U.S. investors to trade in futures on commodities including Ether, Litecoin and Bitcoin without registering with the commission.
Per the CFTC’s complaint the St. Vincent-registered Laino Group, doing business as PaxForex, used a network of U.S.-based affiliates to solicit American retail investors. In doing so, Laino Group violated the Commodity Exchange Act.
The CFTC did not specify the extent of Laino Group’s activities. The commission’s request for relief indeed suggest that they themselves don’t know how much the trading platform took in without registering. In addition to calling for full return of all funds accumulated, the CFTC’s complaint asks for:
An order directing that Defendant, and any successor thereof, make an accounting to the Court of all of its assets and liabilities, together with all funds it received from and paid to customers.
Particularly noteworthy here is the jurisdictional boundary being established. The CFTC has consistently called Bitcoin a commodity in recent years. The appearance of Ether and Litecoin in a list with Bitcoin as well as traditional commodities like gold and silver within an action from the CFTC suggests that the Commission is treating these others as commodities as well, which CFTC Chairman Heath Tarbert suggested last year.
The question of which cryptocurrencies should be under CFTC jurisdiction came up in a pair of bills introduced to the House of Representatives last week.
Swipe’s SXP Token Jumps Over 25% Ahead of Swipe Governance Mainnet Deployment
The price of Swipe’s SXP token has jumped well over 25%, from $1.29 to $1.65 at press time, after Swipe Governance’s (SG) smart contracts were successfully audited by CertiK and SG’s mainnet deployment started being prepared.

The price of Swipe’s SXP token has jumped well over 25%, from $1.29 to $1.65 at press time, after Swipe Governance’s (SG) smart contracts were successfully audited by CertiK and SG’s mainnet deployment started being prepared.
According to an announcement posted on Twitter, Swipe Governance’s smart contracts were successfully audited by CertiK, and Swipe Governance’s mainnet is now scheduled to be deployed on Friday, October 2.
The tweet points out that the Swipe Governance protocol will allow SXP token holders to vote and control various paraments of the cryptocurrency’s development via the Swipe network.
Responding to the announcement some users touted their faith was restored in the project and they are now “super bullish” on it. Notably, others pointed out that the news appeared to have been leaked somewhere, as before the official announcement the price of the SXP token started surging.
The code behind the Swipe Token itself had notably already been audited by CertiK. In an announcement published last year, Swipe pointed out the audit was meant to ensure the SXP token would be “secure against some of the most critical vulnerabilities.”
The token, the team wrote, is the “center piece of network fuel and access to receiving the services provided by Swipe.” The announcement details CertiK conducts audits using Formal Verification, which goes beyond checking for bugs and vulnerabilities and “leverages rigorous mathematical theorems to check whether the source code of a program meets its specification.”
The Swipe Governance audit announcement saw SXP’s price jump to over $1.8 before the token’s price started correcting. The token hit an all-time high of $4.3 back in August, one month after leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance acquired Swipe for an undisclosed sum.
Binance acquired Swipe and listed the SXP token back then. The cryptocurrency exchange’s acquisition of the firm appears to be related to its Binance Visa Card, a cryptocurrency debit card that lets users pay with crypto anywhere Visa is accepted.
The Binance Visa Card uses Swipe’s technology and rolled out to users in the European Economic Area earlier this month.

Bitcoin (BTC) continues to break new ground. According to data aggregated by Messari, on Sunday, 27 Sept., it broke another record — closing at $10,793, thus making it 63 consecutive daily closes above the $10,000 handle.
The current streak eclipses the previous record of 62 days, which lasted from Dec 1, 2017 – Jan 31, 2018, a period during which bitcoin reached its all-time high of just above $19,900.
Bitcoin’s latest extended consolidation above the five-digit mark, however, is proving different than previous runs. This time around, there is less hype, and in terms of price, things are relatively quiet, mostly fluctuating between $10,000 and $12,500.
During the last three months, any dips under 10k were aggressively bought. And according to The Crypto Lark, this is evidence of “halving effects starting to be felt.” In reaction to the news, the co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital and well-known podcaster Anthony Pompliano, for his part, tweeted:
Striking a slightly different tone, Matt Kaye, the managing partner of Blockhead Capital, commented,
we are essentially at $11k with no euphoria. No derivative long build-up. High stablecoin balances. Shorts are still unwinding. The sentiment is cautious at best (justifiably so with macro backdrop). Appreciate the rarity of this moment.
The broken record occurred around the same time it came to light that investment firm Grayscale was again adding to its Bitcoin Trust. At current prices, the additional investments are said to be about 17,100 BTC, worth approximately $186 million.
Meanwhile, bitcoin’s price is approaching a crucial resistance area, a breakout above which could confirm that the trend is bullish. For more in-depth Bitcoin analysis, click here.
