Ethereum Has 2x More Developers Than Bitcoin

According to a recent report by Electric Capital, Ethereum has twice as many active developers than Bitcoin. With more than 20,000 code repositories and 16 million Github commits, Ethereum has the most active developer base among any other cryptocurrency. On average, 216 developers contribute to Ethereum's source code every month. Bitcoin, on the other hand, had only 50 developers contributing to its codebase every month. Other popular projects such as Cardano, EOS, and Tron have 25 developers each. However, some of the hard forks seem abandoned. Cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Gold (BTG) and Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) hardly had any contributors. Ethereum (ETH) is priced at $136.56, losing 1.48% in the last 24 hours. (VS)

Dogecoin Price Faces Bearish Pressure in the DOGE/BTC Segment

As the hourly cryptocurrency charts show minor signs of weakness, some currencies will dip in the red pretty quickly. Dogecoin is one of the first to do so, which may come as a surprise to a lot of people. Although the losses are not even all that significant, the Dogecoin price is slowly turning bearish. Especially the DOGE/BTC ratio remains under a lot of pressure, for the time being. Bearish Dogecoin Price Momentum was Expected In the cryptocurrency world, bearish hourly Bitcoin charts can spell trouble for altcoins, regardless of their total market cap. Although a bearish hourly candle seems more than warranted after the recent gains, it is already spelling trouble for Dogecoin. The meme currency of the internet is losing ground across the board. A dip below $0.002 may not necessarily occur, although it will be tight. In the past hour or two, the Dogecoin price declined by 0.4% to bring its value to $0.002081. What is of more concern, however, is how DOGE/BTC continues to face immense pressure. With another 2.25% drop in that department, the 52 Satoshi level will need to act as thorough support right now. Only time will tell whether it can fulfill that role or not. As one would come to expect, the negative price pressure isn’t exactly a hot topic on social media yet just. Adem BCD sees an interesting few hours ahead for DOGE/USD, although it is anyone’s guess as to where the value will head next. If Bitcoin turns bearish as well, the losses can start to pile up incredibly quickly. #DOGE USD grafiği. btc miktarı önemli değil benim için. vereceği dolarcıklar lazım bize. o yüzden usd grafiğini atıyorum. çalışırsa bizim kasa kazanır. #DOGEUSD #DOGEBTC $DOGE $DOGEBTC #dogecoin @SelimKMD @buyukucgen — Adem BCD (@adem_bcd) February 19, 2019 One rather interesting topic of debate is whether or not there is any upcoming development for Dogecoin. While the obvious answer would be negatory, it might not sit well with some members of the community. As such, some clarity on this front would be appreciated. It is unclear what type of feature Dogecoin really needs, as the brand does just fine in its current form. Dogecoin Road Map 2019-2999 via /r/dogecoin hot in #reddit #dogecoin #doge #crypto much wow! — Domain Address Info (@DomainAddress4u) February 19, 2019 It has been at least a full day since someone last mentioned Dogecoin isn’t on Binance. That streak has now been broken, courtesy of David Love Doge. This enthusiast claims Binance, while it may become the Amazon of crypto, will not be the “Prime Binance” without Dogecoin. An interesting sentiment, although it won’t get DOGE listed on this exchange any faster either. Yet without #dogecoin binance will never be Prime binance. — Doge Love [Broke Philanthropist] (@DavidLoveDoge) February 19, 2019 All of these signs seem to indicate some rough times may be ahead for Dogecoin. While that is nothing new for this altcoin whatsoever, it comes at a bit of an odd time. If all markets resume their uptrend later in the week, it will be interesting to see what happens to DOGE. Under normal circumstances, it will follow suit, although that is not always the case. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

The Daily: Coffee Company to Pay Farmers in Bitcoin, Bitfury’s Latest Investment

In today’s edition of The Daily, we feature an upcoming bitcoin cash token backed by physical diamonds and an American coffee company that has decided to add cryptocurrencies to its payment options. Additionally, we look at a public mining company that may get a dual listing in Canada, as well as the latest investment by Bitfury. Also Read: GMO Internet Reports Crypto Exchange Profit Up Over 34% in Q3 2018 Rosetta Coffee Adopts Bitcoin Payments Rosetta Coffee, a specialty coffee company based in Lynchburg, Virginia, and Outer Banks, North Carolina, has announced that it will soon adopt cryptocurrency payment options. On the client-facing side of the business, transactions will go through Shopping Cart Elite’s e-commerce platform. With this, the online store will be able to accept BCH, BTC, BCD, DASH, ETH, LTC and XZC. Rosetta Coffee emphasized that farmers will also directly benefit from the new process, as part of its commitment to purchasing fair-trade coffee. “Cryptocurrency allows them to receive payment directly and immediately without paying a middleman. They will be able to take home more of what they earn,” said Aaron Skeen, co-founder of Rosetta Coffee. “We think this is awesome and it aligns directly with our mission. In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be working with farmers to iron out this process and make it more accessible.” Hello Diamonds Developing BCH Token Hello Diamonds, a part of the Cyprus-based Hello Group — which acquired the domain earlier this year — is developing a new token backed up by physical diamonds. The company revealed that the “Diamcoin,” which is scheduled for launch in the first quarter of 2019, will be based on a bitcoin cash (BCH) smart contract protocol. “The Bitcoin Cash network allows for fast and cheap transactions and this is fundamental to our reasoning,” the developers explained. “We firmly believe that the Bitcoin Cash smart contracts will be the best choice for Hello Diamonds and we aim to scale and be the world’s most used stablecoin.” The token will use the Wormhole protocol, which creates the WHC “second layer” on top of the BCH network, a process which Hello Diamonds concluded “scales much better than Ethereum.” Bitfarms Seeks Listing in Canada Tel Aviv Stock Exchange-listed cryptocurrency mining company Bitfarms has started the regulatory process to examine the potential of having its shares listed on a Canadian exchange. The Canada-headquartered company has filed a preliminary prospectus with the Ontario Securities Commission, which was made available to the public on Nov. 12. It details a potential business arrangement between Bitfarms and a newly created Canadian private company, Bitfarms Canada, for the planned move. “We are currently evaluating a listing in Canada as we endeavor to grow Bitfarms’ visibility, improve our access to capital and streamline expenses,” commented Wes Fulford, chief executive officer of Bitfarms. “Our analysis suggests that Canada has one of the most active public markets in our emerging industry, with several blockchain infrastructure and cryptocurrency mining companies having listed and raised significant capital over the last 12 months.” Bitfury Invests in Institutional Crypto Company Bitfury Group, the San Francisco-based manufacturer of bitcoin mining hardware — which recently completed an $80 million private placement funding round — has announced a new investment of its own. The company has acquired an undisclosed but “substantial” minority stake in Final Frontier, a specialist cryptocurrency investment firm operating out of Switzerland’s so-called “Crypto Valley” region. This move is meant to help Bitfury to develop institutional-grade financial products and services for professional investors. “This is a groundbreaking partnership between a blockchain technology firm and an experienced team from traditional finance,” said Valery Vavilov, CEO of Bitfury. “With the blockchain space institutionalizing, we consider it an important step forward for the entire ecosystem and for our own mission to be the world’s leading full-service blockchain company.” What do you think about today’s news tidbits?

BTCC Mining Pool to Shut Down Indefinitely “Due to Business Adjustments”

BTCC, China’s oldest Bitcoin exchange, is shutting down its mining pool, which has been operating for more than four years, the company announced. The firm claims the decision to cease operations indefinitely from November 30 is due to business adjustments. BTCC’s Mining Pool to Cease Operations Indefinitely from November 30 The cryptocurrency mining pool launched by Hong Kong-based Bitcoin exchange BTCC has been active since 2014. Stating that the firm has earned the support and trust of the miners by providing a stable and transparent mining service for miners with security and low latency 24/7, BTCC asked digital currency miners to conclude their activity on the platform before the shutdown on November 15. “Today, we regret to announce that due to business adjustments, the BTCC pool will shut down all mining servers on November 15 and will cease operations indefinitely from November 30. In order to avoid unnecessary losses, please miners to complete the power switch before November 15th, and bind the mining revenue address before November 20th, we will release the profits of all miners in time.” Founded by Stanford science computer graduate Bobby Lee, brother of Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, the BTCC mining pool supports BTC, BCH, LTC, SBTC, BCD, and BTM mining. As the pool’s servers, deployed in strategic locations worldwide, prepare to shut down in mid-November, BTCC will focus solely on cryptocurrency exchange services and crypto wallets from now on. Founded in June 2011 as BTCChina, the firm which was once the world’s second-largest digital currency operator by volume in October 2014, is thought to have almost 150 employees today. The company chose to keep the reasons for the shutdown private, but made it clear that it remains a firm believer of Bitcoin and the blockchain industry, and seems to be promising an eventual return of its cryptocurrency mining pool. “We firmly believe that the digital encryption assets and blockchain industry represented by Bitcoin will continue to develop and improve. You, remember, there will be echoes, we will see you again!” Following the tightening of regulations within China’s crypto-space in early September 2017, BTCC’s Shanghai operation ceased trading on its domestic exchange. The firm shut down trading of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether, and stopped accepting new users. BTCC has recently launched a subsidiary in South Korea with an office located in Gangnam. The operator has obtained ISO27001 certification, which is the international standard for information security management system, and South Korea’s information protection management system certification.

XRP, Stellar (XLM), EOS, and Cardano (ADA) are the Best Buy Bet, Declares Weiss Crypto Ratings

Weiss Crypto Ratings has announced its highest-rated cryptos viz. XRP, Stellar (XLM), EOS, and Cardano (ADA) that makes them the best cryptos to invest in. It further shares the methodology behind its grading system along with why Bitcoin is still a C+. Best Investment Options Not long ago, Weiss Crypto Ratings announced four cryptocurrencies viz. Aurora Chain (AOA), Bitcoin Diamond (BCD), Credits (CS), and Mixin (XIN) that investors should stay away from. Now, it has provided with four cryptos that have got the best grading, giving them the buy preference. In its latest blog, Weiss crypto ratings’ Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D. and Juan M. Villaverde talk about these four cryptos that are “beginning to put it all together,” with advanced tech and adoption in the real world. However, it does mention that they aren’t “all the way there yet,” but are surely making good progress. XRP, Stellar (XLM), EOS, and Cardano (ADA) are the best cryptos to invest as they get the best rating of B- by Weiss crypto ratings that shares, “XRP and Stellar are appealing to businesses and other organizations, mainly for speedy financial transfers. In contrast, EOS and Cardano are designed more as virtual communities, with each participant empowered to influence the future direction of the project, spanning a broad range of applications.” Apparently, these four have technology that’s “built for excellence” and is further capable of achieving their goals. Moreover, during the past 10 months, they are enjoying “rapidly improving adoption metrics.” They conclude their findings with: “They’ve made remarkable progress during a period of massive investor losses, broad reputational damage to the industry, and worse. So imagine what their market performance could be like once the crypto markets firm up and investor interest returns in a big way!” In the same article, it also shares the methodology followed by them to grade cryptos. Its technology model focuses on the blockchain technology, adoption model measures performance in the real world, investment risk model evaluates volatility and downside price risk, and investment reward model deals with the upside potential. As for why not rate all cryptos, it specifies “they’re strictly utility tokens, typically issued by a startup company or project for very limited purposes.” It further provides the explanation on why Bitcoin only gets a C+, “poor risk/reward metrics. outdated technology, including slow transaction speeds, difficulty in scaling, weak governance, and more. Much of this could improve as the Lightning Network rolls out, but that could take a lot more time.” The post XRP, Stellar (XLM), EOS, and Cardano (ADA) are the Best Buy Bet, Declares Weiss Crypto Ratings appeared first on Coingape.

Chinese Are Legally Allowed To Use and Transfer Bitcoin (BTC)

If you thought Bitcoin (BTC) was banned entirely in China, you are wrong according to a cryptocurrency news source in China. Merchants in China are legally allowed to accept BTC as payment. Local reports indicate that the Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration recognizes Bitcoin as a property and so individuals and businesses are allowed to own and transfer BTC. There are no barriers to regulations. The case was tried in Shenzhen which is one of China’s special economic ones and may have helped the situation of cryptocurrency given the Blockchain startups initiated in Shenzhen. Bitcoin’s decentralized nature classifies it as a property as it provides financial freedom and economic value to the owner, according to a cryptocurrency researcher Katherine Wu. China is more inclined towards supporting Bitcoin mining with companies such as Bitmain, Ebang, and Canaan Creative. Zerocrypted Opinion- The sources, however, state Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) being classified as a property due to its decentralized characteristic however the state of other cryptocurrencies are not classified as yet. It’s no wonder Chinese companies such as the oldest technology publication Beijing Sci-Tech Report (BSTR) has released plans to accept Bitcoin for its yearly subscription from 2019. Annual subscriptions will be sold at a price of 0.01 BTC and will change depending on Bitcoin’s value. Overall it’s not just Blockchain technology that is widening in China but even cryptocurrency but only in the field of real world usage and not trading. The news shows positivity of China using Bitcoin for various payments as the world is shifting into digital payments. For example research lab by the People’s Bank of China submitted 41 cryptocurrency patents which are a positive sign of China’s vision for blockchain and cryptocurrency for their future. China may run into a favorable widespread Bitcoin adoption given the latest news from Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration.

Chinese Laws Do Not Prohibit Owning & Transferring Bitcoin, Court Rules BTC as Property

China court in the latest case rules Bitcoin protected by law as property as the China laws and regulations do not prohibit the private ownership and transferring of Bitcoin. China court rules Bitcoin protected by law as property The Chinese court, Shenzhen International Arbitration Institute (Shenzhen Arbitration Commission) in a case involving cryptocurrencies attributed Bitcoin as a property that is indeed protected by law. As mentioned by the court, the “case is a dispute over equity transfer, which is a new type of case because it involves special types such as BTC (Bitcoin), BCH (Bitcoin Cash), and BCD (Bitcoin Diamond).” It further points out that China has not clearly defined the legal attributes, concept, and delivery of Bitcoin at the legal and administrative level. According to the case analysis put on the web by the court states the plaintiff went into an agreement with the defendant in order to manage his cryptocurrencies. But the respondent did not return the cryptocurrencies in accordance with the contracts citing the illegal nature of Bitcoin and cryptos in the country making the contract invalid. The disputed cryptos involve 20.13 BTC, 50 BCH, and 12.66 BCD. However, the court argued the point with, “The bitcoin return contract concluded between private individuals does not violate the mandatory provisions of the legal and regulatory effects and should not be considered invalid. Chinese laws and regulations do not prohibit privately held and legally transferred bitcoin.” Second, although Bitcoin exists in the virtual space of the network, it has special characteristics in terms of possession and publicity of rights change, but it does not prevent it from becoming an object of delivery.” It further adds, “The arbitral tribunal held that Bitcoin is not a fiat currency and does not prevent Bitcoin from being protected by law as a property.” Bitcoin is in fact governed by property rules and regulations as court defines here, “The agreement can be seen that Bitcoin has Property attributes can be dominated and controlled by manpower, have economic value, and can bring economic benefits to the parties.” The post Chinese Laws Do Not Prohibit Owning & Transferring Bitcoin, Court Rules BTC as Property appeared first on Coingape.

Weiss Cryptocurrencies Ratings Says Do Not Invest in these 4 Cryptos

“Here’s why you shouldn’t touch ’em with a ten-foot pole,” writes Juan M. Villaverde of Weiss Ratings while talking about the four cryptocurrencies that better not be invested into. 4 Cryptocurrencies you better stay away from Cryptocurrency technology is advancing at a fast pace, no doubt. Greater speed, better governance, and smart contracts among much more innovations are part of this growing space. But with thousands of cryptocurrencies available in the market, as put by Villaverde, “a slew of supposedly “new and innovative” cryptocurrencies that are little more than copycat regurgitations of prior projects,” enters the market. Weiss Crypto Ratings recently began rating these four cryptos and have given them a grade of “D” (weak) or lower. Aurora Chain (AOA): D- Attributing this cryptocurrency to more misinformation and hype than any “real substance,” Villaverde points out a series of red flags. He states the consensus algorithm Aurora “trumpets” about is not a unique combination and that its smart contracts in its white paper seem to have been “lifted straight away from Wikipedia.” It further adds that there no programmers and developers identified by name, rather the website has only a list of “community managers on social media.” Moreover, no codes are available and the adoption metrics live on Ethereum network has no functionality. Not to forget the fact that it is listed on only one exchange. Bitcoin diamond (BCD): D Hyping the coin as “the next big thing” in crypto and “enticing investors to jump in,” BCD just increased its maximum supply and “came up with an algorithm that supposedly prevents big mining companies from developing specialized mining hardware that drives small-time miners out of business.” Meanwhile, it inherits all the technological weakness of the Bitcoin. With a tiny community of users, few transactions on the network and developer support being virtually non-existent, Weiss Ratings give it a weak grade. Credits (CS): D The team has used the MD5 hashing algorithm in their platform design which is “famously vulnerable to security breaches,” even America’s Department of Homeland Security warned of this algorithm. By pointing out its false claims of “groundbreaking new consensus algorithm” and being hyped, Weiss Ratings says, “This is shady at best.” Mixin (XIN): E- Suspicion of developers’ LinkedIn profiles being “faked”, about barely a dozen subscribers on Reddit, dApp that’s supposed to connect with the Mixin network doesn’t work, no technical details on how it will be built, and GitHub containaining no reference “we know of to any of the code that the Mixin whitepaper describes,” are the points against this cryptocurrency.

U.S. Jewelry Store Latest Retailer to Accept Cryptocurrency as Payment

A U.S.-based jewelry store is joining a growing and long list of retailers who are accepting cryptocurrency to pay for goods. If the crypto industry has been good to you and you’re in the market for something shiny, then you’re in luck. According to a press release, Marks Jewelers is the latest retailer to accept cryptocurrency as a payment. The US-based jewelry store’s wide range of beautiful diamonds and timepieces will most likely have you parting with your crypto in no time at all. Reaching More Customers Around the Globe By collaborating with Shopping Cart Elite, an e-commerce platform, Marks Jewelers will be able to accept Bitcoin Diamond (BCD), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Dash, Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Zcoin (XZC). The Director of Marketing for the jewelers, Joshua Rubin, spoke about his excitement for this new venture and how it will impact the company: We’re very excited to begin accepting cryptocurrency payments from our customers around the world. This will allow us to make our fine jewelry available to the global market while paying lower fees and avoiding chargebacks. Marks has long been known for our meticulous craftsmanship and curated selection, and we are thrilled to open our store to the world. While convenience and customer-base expansion are obvious benefits for the company, their clients may also experience discounted rates. This is because the savings that Marks Jewelers will enjoy, such as lack of currency conversion fees and reduced transaction costs, could translate into more affordable product prices for their customers. Cryptocurrency Acceptance Continues to Grow While perhaps the latest, Marks Jewelers is by no means that only retailer that is accepting virtual currencies as payment. Overstock saw the crypto light back in 2014 when they began accepting Bitcoin and its brethren. Live Bitcoin News also reported on a Texas-based luxury vehicle dealership that began accepting crypto as well as another U.S.-based car dealership that recently sold a car completely paid for in Dash. However, if you really want to up the ante and buy your own yacht or even the ever-popular Bitcoin status symbol, a Lambo, then sites like the Dadiani Syndicate were made for you. With these platforms, bridging the divide between virtual wealth and tangible luxury assets is getting easier and easier. So, the moral of the story is that you don’t have to let your lack of fiat stop you from popping the big question or buying that priceless work of art. Just find a platform that can accept your crypto and treat yo’ self. What would be the first luxury item you’d buy if you had some crypto to spare? Let us know in the comments below!

Cryptocurrency Fire Sale: Most Tokens are 90% down from their All-Time-Highs

The 2018 bear market has knocked most cryptocurrency prices down to yearly lows with many now trading for less than 99% of their all-time-high value. Even though the market remains in a downtrend there are still some cryptocurrencies that post regular gains and could be considered good buys at the moment. Waltonchain (WTC) still gets plenty of action and today is up more than 12%. WTC currently trades for #3.52, which is 92% down from its ATH of $45.96. Lisk also rose 12% today and trades at $3.77, which is 90% down from an ATH of #39.31. Not every altcoin is a winner though. To date the biggest loser of 2018 is Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) which is down $97.55%. (RS)
