PR: Lightning Fast Stablecoin USDX Launches Token Sale

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release. Stablecoins have been a hot topic in 2018, and many different companies are creating cryptocurrencies for P2P payments. The USDX Wallet payment system stands out from these overly complicated and undeveloped projects by delivering rapid and secure transactions with the ease of sending a text. Whether you are depositing money, organizing international money transfers, paying salaries, or making non-cash transactions, this digital payment system is a secure and reliable choice. As a blockchain-based wallet, USDX Wallet guarantees multi-level security for all transactions and instant transfers of assets via a phone number. The native blockchain used by USDX is based on BitShares, and it allows 100,000 transactions per second. For reference, that is the speed of Visa and Mastercard — combined. Many of the pain points of crypto transfers are also solved by this innovative payment system, including cryptocurrency volatility, low transaction speeds, security issues related to private keys, and excessive fees, among many others. Available at Google Play and the App Store, this free app features smooth navigation and slick design, making it a pleasure to use. Face ID and Touch ID features will soon be available for the wallet, making authorization even faster and smoother. Ease of use is coupled with security of use as USDX Wallet employs strong encryption algorithms to protect users’ private keys, which are necessary to access funds. Another security layer is two-factor authentication (2FA) performed via SMS codes or push notifications (depending on user preference). As the Whitepaper states, all USDX services are based on AWS and the Google Cloud platforms, which foster scalability, maintainability, and the overall security of the system. Security and stability are of the utmost importance to USDX Wallet and its currency owners. The USDX token is a stablecoin pegged to the U.S. dollar at a 1:1 ratio via a smart contract. USDX is collateralized by the system’s core cryptocurrency, LHT, which refers to Lighthouse Blockchain Technology, the company behind the app. The total supply of LHT is 1B coins, which will be released gradually to the market. Only 5% of the supply will be issued in the first year, while another 5% will be locked on the blockchain to provide 200% collateralization. The benefit of withholding coins is encouraging confidence in LHT owners and potential owners that the value won’t suddenly evaporate if the market becomes flooded. These tokens are available for purchase during the token sale, going on from November 1 to December 31, or until all the allotted coins are sold from this first pool. There are no private sales or presales, and the project has already received venture investment. Developers have set the stage for exchanges integration, and the listing is planned for January 2019. Future profits will come from business account fees. USDX tokens could be purchased via the native app with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and a bunch of other altcoins. Significant bonuses can be earned for any purchases before the end of 2018. ● For a 35% bonus: Download the USDX Wallet app, register, and get 35% extra tokens on your first purchase. ● For a 25% bonus: Invite friends and get 25% back of their first purchase. ● For a 10% bonus: Get 10% more bonuses for second and all subsequent orders. Unlike so many other companies in the industry, USDX Wallet prioritizes effortless crypto transfers. This is a universal payment system for everyone, from newbies to crypto pros. If you’re looking for an easy and effective way to transfer your crypto assets, USDX Wallet may be exactly the solution you’ve been looking for.

Bchd Developers Announce Neutrino Wallet for Bitcoin Cash in Beta

Named after the subatomic particle that can pass right through the entire planet without being detected, neutrino is meant to be a lightweight wallet with enhanced privacy features. And Bchd developers are now bringing it over to the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) ecosystem in beta mode. Also Read: Thai Central Banker: A National Cryptocurrency Is Years Away Bitcoin Cash Neutrino The Bchd developers who recently introduced a full node Bitcoin Cash client written in Go have also ported the neutrino backend to their codebase. For the first time, this gives BCH users access to the experimental wallet, which focuses on strong network-level privacy. Network privacy refers to limiting the information that the wallet sends to its peers, as well as the servers to which it connects. “Prior to neutrino there was not a single lightweight wallet available on the market that does not disclose all the addresses in your wallet and your entire transaction history to a third party,” the Bchd team explained. Even when using Tor, it is technically possible for trading partners to link an individual to an address, they cautioned. However, neutrino utilizes a “client side filtering” approach, which enables wallets to avoid disclosing the addresses they contain to connected peers. A Work in Progress Due to the details of the security-enhancing process utilized by the neutrino wallet for BCH, devices must download more data than they would for other lightweight clients, which can be a problem for some mobile users. However, the developers have said that if the wallet is open for 10 minutes, which is more than most people’s average daily usage, then it will only be the equivalent of downloading one block. Additionally, the wallets can be programmed to only sync on WiFi. Right now neutrino is command-line only software, which means that some technical knowledge is required to use it. But the team is looking for user interface designers who can create accessible interfaces for both mobile and desktop. It is also important to note that this is still beta software. “If you’re using it on mainnet please only use it with a small amount of funds,” the Bchd developers have warned. Is network privacy a top concern when picking a cryptocurrency wallet? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. Images courtesy of Shutterstock.

Crypto Exchange Bittrex Is Looking for a Security Engineer While Warning Users Against Fraud

Cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex has asked the crypto community to be mindful of the malicious agents who are posing as them and asking for a listing fee. Bittrex has also posted a new job opening for a security engineer who would help with designing best practices at the organization and operational processes that manage risks. The Listing Fee Debacle Bittrex stated that it is aware of scammers who pose as the exchange and ask for deposits to list a coin. Bittrex took to Twitter to inform the community about the issues, writing: “We’re aware of scammers impersonating Bittrex by offering fake listing agreements in exchange for security deposit tokens. Don’t fall for it. We DO NOT charge a listing fee.” One Twitter user @Zabisara asked the exchange what they charge $500,000 for if not to list a coin. To this, Bittrex replied that no listing fee is charged on any platform run by the organization, whether its Bittrex.com or Bittrex International and provided a link to its website where it details its listing procedure. Job Open for a New Security Engineer Highlighting Bittrex’s importance on security, the exchange is also currently hiring for a security engineer. In a recent job posting, Bittrex said that the exchange needs passionate professionals in the cybersecurity area who can work to embed security intelligence into its future. The exchange noted that security is its top priority. It said that a deep understanding of information security was essential for the candidate, writing: “Maybe it’s cryptography, network security, software security, malware analysis, forensics, security operations, incident response, and/or emergent security intelligence.” The candidate will be helping the exchange work with the industry’s best practices, manage risks, work on security protocols, and more. The organization didn’t mention any specific criteria in education and experience or mention the salary that would be paid.

Crypto Blood Bath 2018...Again

Image Courtesy: Tradingview.com Bitcoin continued its downward trend today, seeing a price low of just over $4,800 at the time of this writing (via Blockmodo real-time data). Meanwhile, the public speculates on a price bottom, accompanied by a broad range of emotions. Bitcoin’s Price Action Looking at the weekly chart for Bitcoin, there are several levels of interest. The $4660, $3000, and $1860 areas show levels of support based on the Bitmex USD chart. Price seems to have found a bit of support at press time, around a bottom of $4660. Image Credit: Tradingview.com On the daily chart, Bitcoin is well below the 128-day moving average (yellow line). The $5700 - $6100 range (roughly) was the support for a significant amount time, but now has turned into resistance as yesterday saw price retesting that zone, with failure to stay in that range. Image Courtesy: Tradingview.com When Bottom? From a trading and investing perspective, crypto chartist and influencer Tone Vays has been accurate in his evaluations this year. He even won a bet with poker pro and crypto influencer Doug Polk when Bitcoin’s price reached $6k (already seen). In a YouTube video today, Vays expressed his evaluation based on the charts. Accordingly, lows of $2500 (and possibly $1300) may not be out of the cards going forward to find a market bottom in certain scenarios. However, the $4000-$5000 range is also referenced as a possible short-term bottom. How Does Mining Factor Into the Equation Bitcoin mining also plays a part in Bitcoin’s price. Bitcoin miners may operate on the basis of Bitcoin’s price covering their cost of mining. Simply put, if Bitcoin’s price drops to a range where miners cannot sell at a price to recoup their mining and electricity costs, then they are operating at a deficit. Since mining costs vary by region and country, it is difficult to fully grasp the impact of such price action on miners. In a private conversation, Crypto Insider’s Vlad Costea has made an interesting comment on the subject, stating that a lot of miners would shut down their operations if Bitcoin’s price dropped too significantly. Costea also mentions compromised/lowered network security in such a scenario, yet the reduced mining difficulty might be enough of an incentive to keep it all going. Twitter Drama Speculation fills the Twitter streets, with folks wondering when the market will see a reversal. 5.8k5.2k4.8k 4.6k pending4.2k3.9k3.6k pic.twitter.com/ylqfYmYaKy — CryptoBirb (@crypto_birb) November 19, 2018 Meanwhile, notable figures like Peter Brandt show evidence of the bubble that once was Bitcoin.

Many of these comments and tweets are made by veterans of the crypto space who are experienced with such market moves. I love the feeling of lying in bed and wondering what kind of complete and utter mess you’re going to wake up to in $crypto tomorrow. This is the real experience that I’m used to.

New Cryptocurrency Leader Helps Business Owners Survive

There are a vast number of people who obtained cryptocurrency at its highest price and are now obligated to HODL onto their Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Ripple, while the market is stagnant or static. Because the HODLers are in need of cash, they oftentimes turn to crypto-backed loan companies. Many such loan providers offer services at high prices (long approval waits, low loan-to-value ratios, hidden fees). However, recently, a new cryptocurrency leader showed up to fix this problem. The youngest and perhaps most promising crypto-backed loan company is called YouHodler. What Is YouHodler? YouHodler is a crypto-backed loan provider that lends people cash in exchange for crypto collateral. Unlike its competitors, YouHodler accepts the majority of leading digital coins and issues loans instantly. The entire loan process, starting from registration, takes only a couple of hours. The provider offers the highest loan-to-value ratio (70%) in the market, and most of the top leading digital currencies are accepted as loan collateral (including the extremely popular Ripple). To take a loan, all you will need to do is register an account, pass the KYC test, and request a loan. Then, the cash can be released instantly. YouHodler Success Stories Shortly after its launch, YouHodler managed to help many small business owners. In some cases, individuals needed to borrow cash quickly, to cover their debts or their day-to-day expenses. In other cases, users wanted to take loans to invest in ICOs. When the prices of their newly-released tokens soared, these individuals profitably sold a portion of their tokens for loan payment purposes. YouHodler Affiliate Program YouHodler is the youngest and the most promising crypto-backed loan provider at this moment. Because YouHodler wants to stay afloat and to attract even more customers, it is now offering a unique affiliate program for its users. If you register on YouHodler, you can receive an affiliate link to share with your friends. Once your friends take YouHodler loans, you will receive 5% of the interest that YouHodler generates from your friends’ loans. Any individual who is planning to take loans (or who is not planning to take loans) can take part in the affiliate program now. All you need to do is register an account on YouHodler, find your affiliate link in your member ledger, and share the link with your friends. The process is as simple as using Coinbase, Binance, or any other crypto exchange.

Por que “a institucionalização das criptomoedas” é um paradoxo?

Por: Livecoins Por Jackson Palmer @ Diar - Se você ficar em dia com as notícias sobre criptomoedas, pôde perceber uma tendência recente que é a empolgação generalizada com a perspectiva de grandes instituições financeiras tradicionais entrarem na indústria. Vimos uma onda de notícias institucionais ultimamente, desde a Bakkt, afiliada à NYSE, lançando infra-estrutura de custódia e negociação, até ETFs bitcoin de grandes prestadores de serviços de plano de aposentadoria, como a Fidelity, abrindo espaço para criptomoedas. Em paralelo, as startups nascidas da geração de criptomoedas, como a Coinbase, estão cada vez mais direcionando seus negócios para investidores institucionais, na esperança de poder competir com esses gigantes de Wall Street. Enquanto muitos entusiastas das criptomoedas expressam entusiasmo cego com a noção de impacto positivo de preço associado a esse dinheiro, é importante dar um passo para trás e analisar o que essa fase do ciclo de vida das criptomoedas realmente representa. Para analisar o cenário das criptomoedas, podemos associar o estado atual a três benefícios amplos que as moedas digitais descentralizadas originalmente tinham como objetivo fornecer: 1. Resistência à censura 2. Transações confiáveis 3. Histórico verificável A descentralização continua a ser um espectro, e os projetos podem ocasionalmente evitar alguma descentralização em nome da eficiência e, ao mesmo tempo, fornecer um subconjunto desses atributos. Mas uma criptomoeda de sucesso precisa garantir que todos os três princípios fundamentais sejam mantidos. Se você observar o que está acontecendo com a Bakkts, Fidelitys e Coinbase através das lentes desses princípios, surge uma tendência preocupante. RESISTÊNCIA À CENSURA A resistência à censura implica que a capacidade de um usuário de interagir com a moeda nunca deve depender de um possível ponto único de falha. No Bitcoin, os nós públicos podem diminuir, mas existem muitos para preencher rapidamente o seu lugar. Graças ao consenso descentralizado via Prova de Trabalho (PoW), também não existe uma única entidade que possa censurar suas transações. A mudança para a dependência de uma única corporação (essencialmente um banco) como sua janela para uma rede de criptomoedas introduz um ponto único de falha. Se a Coinbase.com ficar off-line, um usuário que confia nesse provedor perde essencialmente o acesso à rede Bitcoin descentralizada. Além disso, se a Coinbase ou qualquer provedor de serviços centralizado simplesmente encontrar uma conta “suspeita” por seus padrões, eles podem bloquear ou limitar severamente o acesso de um usuário à sua conta ou censurar transações de serem transmitidas. TRANSAÇÕES CONFIÁVEIS Para que uma moeda digital seja “confiavel” por natureza, não se deve exigir que um usuário confie em um custodiante, facilitador ou até mesmo outro usuário para realizar transações de forma segura e confiável. Em um sistema como o Bitcoin, se um usuário estiver segurando suas chaves privadas, ele terá total propriedade e autoridade sobre seus fundos. Um tema comum entre Bakkt, Fidelity e Coinbase, no entanto, é o seu impulso para oferecer “serviços de custódia” para os usuários que armazenam criptomoedas com eles - uma prática antitética à premissa de transações financeiras sem confiança. Ao oferecer serviços de custódia, essas empresas buscam controlar e administrar as carteiras contendo Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc. de seus grandes clientes institucionais e de varejo, ocultando a noção de chaves privadas em nome da conveniência. Quando os usuários estão realizando transações com a rede Bitcoin por meio de um ETF ou plano Fidelity respaldado em criptomoeda, eles possuem a cripto puramente no papel e não na realidade, pois o provedor está simplesmente movimentando os saldos em um banco de dados centralizado. De um modo geral, se você não está segurando suas chaves privadas, você não está segurando criptomoedas. Além disso, como vimos com o desastre da MT.Gox, grandes somas de cryptomoedas centralizadas podem ser um alvo atraente para os hackers. HISTÓRICO VERIFICÁVEL Muito do sucesso original do Bitcoin foi alimentado por uma reação às práticas supostamente corruptas que resultaram na crise financeira de 2008. A promessa da blockchain era que, através de um livro público verificável, os usuários teriam confiança na emissão e no fluxo da oferta de moeda, e que os bancos não poderiam destruir secretamente essa nova economia a portas fechadas. Com o Bitcoin, um usuário pôde, a qualquer momento, verificar com segurança todo o histórico de transações que levaram ao estado atual dos saldos no ledger. Mas, à medida que imensas somas do suprimento monetário digital começam a se alojar nos cofres dos provedores de serviços institucionais, as transações crescem cada vez mais fora de uma blockchain pública e são, ao invés disso, processadas “off-chain” usando bancos de dados privados. Embora muitas empresas comercializem essa abordagem como oferecendo velocidades mais rápid

Could Ripple (XRP) Be The Next Binance Base Currency?

The bear market of Cryptocurrency has seen billions being wiped off. However, XRP did the opposite and started increasing in demand and value. It even took over Ethereum and stood it’s ground to be the second-ranked Cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalisation.No wonder, Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao, better known as CZ in Crypto world, has finally responded to the positive headlines of Ripple and XRP. CZ asked the supporters of XRP to shill the coin as much as possible hinting that XRP may be next in line as a base currency on the popular Cryptocurrency exchange. The xrp base shill is strong. Let's get it out of your system, and put all your shills under this one tweet, and let's see how much we get. https://t.co/usiISCtuSj — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) November 18, 2018 A shill is cryptocurrency slang for promoting a cryptocurrency in a variety of ways to create hype surrounding the coin. CZ has allowed the very vocal and supportive XRP community to do all they want and can by replying to the tweet with shills on XRP.CZ included a link to an article on LinkedIn which gives all the details on how a coin can be listed on Binance.com. Zerocrypted Opinion As of now, three Cryptocurrency exchanges support XRP as a base currency. These include Coinfield, Bitrue and DCEX. If XRP is added to Binance, expect the value of XRP to increase tremendously given the number of transactions that occur on Binance.There are a couple of reasons for Binance to consider XRP- XRP is the fastest Cryptocurrency in terms of transfer speed. XRP has a use case of cross-border transactions which has very high demands throughout the world. XRP is seen to form partnerships with large financial institutions. More users from the Ripple community will join Binance’s exchange. Bitcoin’s volatility may encourage users of Binance to shift to XRP being their base currency given its steady rise, and it’s unbelievable transfer speeds. Currently, Bitcoin’s base currencies include - BTC, ETH, BNB and USDT. XRP at the time of writing is happily sitting in the second position with a market capitalisation of $19,194,933,907 and a price of $0.476635. Ethereum, on the other hand, is losing market capitalisation at a rate and is currently at $16,033,908,292. The gap between XRP and Ethereum is getting bigger and bigger.Image Source - Flickr The post Could Ripple (XRP) Be The Next Binance Base Currency? appeared first on Zerocrypted - Your Daily Cryptocurrency News, Guides And More.

Cryptocurrency Memes: The Only Assets That Can Survive a Bear Market

If there are two things a bear market’s good for, it’s building and memeing. Your portfolio might be down, but if you’re anything like crypto Twitter, your meme bank will be filled to overflowing with riches. Bloody markets make for marvelous memes. Also read: Another ‘Satoshi Message’ Attempts to Sway Public Opinion, But Fails Bears Everywhere 12 months ago, media outlets such as news.Bitcoin.com were running low on stock images of bulls to accompany stories of BTC hitting new all-time highs. One year on and it’s bears we’re short on. Thankfully, internet image boards and Telegram channels are a ripe repository of the sort of bears last seen in childhood cartoons, now repurposed to suit the market we find ourselves in. Do our memes reflect the mood of the markets or do the markets reflect the mood of our memes? Perhaps if we all shared more bulls in our cryptocurrency trading groups the good times would return. Hide the Pain While market downturns can be good for germinating new memes, they’re also good for resurrecting old ones. Hide the Pain Harold sticker sets have been seeing heavy usage on Telegram ever since BTC dropped below $6,000. NPC 2018’s defining meme has undoubtedly been the non-player character (NPC). It’s been used mercilessly throughout the cryptocurrency space to mock opponents, with the Blockstream/Bitcoin Core Telegram pack one of the finest sticker collections currently doing the rounds. Sergey and the Singularity Some crypto memes are too arcane to explain. Quite why posters on 4chan’s /biz/ messageboard have fixated on the CEO of oracle project Chainlink doesn’t matter. Nor does it matter why they’re hoarding LINK in anticipation of an event dubbed The Singularity that’s supposedly going to make them stupidly rich. All that matters is poor Sergey Nazarov has been memed mercilessly, albeit for all the right reasons - namely humor and awareness by his devoted band of Link Marines. ICO Bingo You’ve probably already seen the bagholder bingo card: In a week where the SEC laid the banhammer on a brace of ICOs, it seems the perfect time to share bagholder bingo’s sister card - ICO bingo: Finally, no matter how rekt your portfolio might be, remember - it can always get rekter.

How To Buy S&P 100 Stocks With Bitcoin

How to buy stocks with bitcoin? Perhaps surprisingly, stocks and shares have been unnecessarily difficult to buy using bitcoin, despite many brokers offering trades in both. However, trading platform WorldMarkets.io has just listed the entire Standard and Poor 100 stocks, to trade against bitcoin. Buy Stocks With Bitcoin: Rare As Hens Teeth Despite the seemingly natural cross-over in the two markets, direct trading of bitcoin 00 for stocks has been notable in its absence. A quick Google search will throw back several pages explaining how to buy stock in bitcoin, which are best avoided for obvious reasons. However, the only result which seems to be on the right track is an article shilling a site called 1broker. Clicking the link warns of spoofing and dodgy certificates, and typing the site address into the browser bar, informs you that the domain has been seized by the FBI. Tokenize and Fractionalize But now, WorldMarkets.io users can now use bitcoin to buy stock in Apple, Facebook, Netflix, Ford, Boeing, and ninety-five other companies. Using tokenized and fractionalized smart contracts (TFSSC), clients can buy, sell and hold stock in the whole S&P 100. The platform intends to increase this functionality to cover the entire S&P 500 share index, and it isn’t stopping there. The UK’s FTSE 100, Germany’s DAX, and Japan’s Nikkei 225 are all in its sights. Plus other major markets including Brazil, France, and Korea, and several ETFs. Crypto Trading Buying the stock is a simple enough process. Simply add or purchase bitcoin through your trading account, then choose the stock you wish to trade and the amount of bitcoin you want to spend. Voila! Initially, all of these stocks will form trading pairs with bitcoin, but WorldMarkets may add support for future trading against other cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum or Dash. Additionally, users can already trade cryptocurrency pairs combining several major tokens. These include bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Monero, IOTA, and more. At the same time, Bitcoinist reminds you that only keep money on exchanges that you are willing to lose. Not your private keys, not your cryptocurrency. But you already knew that right? Raise Your Cap It isn’t really clear if stock/bitcoin trading pairs have been requested by WorldMarkets users, or simply added ‘because they can.’ No doubt, if it turns out to be a popular feature, it will be popping up on your favorite trading platform soon. Less than a quarter of those stocks listed in the S&P 100 currently have a market cap higher than that of bitcoin. At its peak in December last year, bitcoin out-valued almost 95 percent of the stocks listed. Meanwhile, as stock markets have also been tumbling recently, some are speculating further gains for BTC price. Would you buy stock with bitcoin and cryptocurrency? Share your thoughts below!

Crypto Exchange Binance can Make Ripple’s XRP Its Base Currency

CoinSpeaker Crypto Exchange Binance can Make Ripple’s XRP Its Base Currency In the tweet, the CEO of Binance is noting the strength of the XRP community, and asking its brethren to send him their best pitches for why he should pair every coin on the exchange with the digital asset. He was also responding to suggestions from the XRP fans who believe that doing so would help cushion most altcoins from Bitcoin’s volatility. Additionally, an XRP base currency would allow cheap and efficient movement of value between exchanges. CZ did something unexpected though. He actually included a LinkedIn link that gives tips on how to get your coin listed on Binance.com. Of particular importance, is the following statements in the step-by-step instructions: “We require the project founder or CEO to fill out the form. Why? If there ever is a bug with your wallet, a fork or double-spend in your blockchain, we need to talk to a key person.” The xrp base shill is strong. Let's get it out of your system, and put all your shills under this one tweet, and let's see how much we get. https://t.co/usiISCtuSj — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) November 18, 2018 After taking over Ethereum as the world’s second largest cryptocurrency, XRP investors say Binance should pair all of its cryptocurrencies with XRP. Just for a reminder, after a close battle with and surpassing Ethereum in total market cap twice in a month, XRP has now managed to edge out the rival and grab the second spot right behind Bitcoin. This is mainly due to Ripple’s efforts to expand its customer base over the recent months. More banks are joining the RippleNet where XRP is used as a base currency in cross-border funds transfer using xRapid. The latest addition to the list of Ripple’s partners is CIMB. CIMB Group, the fifth bank in ASEAN adopts Ripple’s tech and enters RippleNet, the company’s network of banks. This will allow the bank to provide its customers with instant cross-border payments. According to Ripple, CIMB is one of the first banks to leverage blockchain technology in a region where payments are historically slow and efficient. “Ripple’s blockchain-based solution has been deployed to enhance CIMB’s proprietary remittance product called SpeedSend. This service allows customers to send and receive money with direct account crediting and instant cash collection. The enhancement improves their access to cross-border remittances across the globe — both inbound into ASEAN and outbound to other countries. It is already enabling remittances to corridors such as Australia, USA, UK and Hong Kong.” There is a small, but growing list of cryptocurrency exchanges that have adopted XRP as a trading base standard. Last August, AlphaPoint, a financial technology company that helps companies access the blockchain and make illiquid assets liquid, launched DCEX, a next-generation digital currency exchange for retail and institutional investors that was the first exchange to have XRP as its exclusive base currency. This Binance’s move could further detach altcoins from the price swings of Bitcoin. And if multiple exchanges add XRP as a base pair, traders could easily utilize the speed of XRP to move value between exchanges. Shaky Ground for Bitcoin The recent upgrade of the Bitcoin Cash network sparked a fierce hash war between the camps of Craig Wright’s Bitcoin Cash Satoshi Vision (BCHSV) and Roger Ver’s Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHABC). As a result, Bitcoin was affected price-wise, dragging the entire market down with it. After BCH hard fork has completed, Binance announced that they added both a BCHSV and BCHABC trading pair to their website, indicating it will likely honor both Bitcoin Cash forks, issuing double tokens to all BCH holders. There is a good percentage of investors that already have turned to other alternatives looking for better utility and security. In that sense, XRP has emerged as a pretty great choice. The fact that the crypto is slowly recovering even as Bitcoin and others struggle to stay afloat adds to the charm. The reasons the community has cited as to why XRP should be the base on Binance are that is already a base on the CoinField Exchange and also the base currency on the XRP United Exchange. One of the biggest rating companies Weiss Ratings already in August shared in their Tweet that they agree XRP should be the base. We would like to see #XRP as one of the base assets on @Binance in order to move value much more quickly! Please do it @cz_binance ! Let's get some retweets to let them know. 🙂#xrpcommunity #xrpthebase @BankXRP @AlexCobb_ @haydentiff @XRPTrump @Hodor7777 @digitalassetbuy — C3|Nik (@C3_Nik) August 9, 2018 The truth is, XRP has proven itself in the past week as it gained value as the rest of the market fell due to the Bitcoin Cash Hash wars, it’s fast and has cheaper transaction fees and it won’t hurt to know that it will definitely attract more users towards trading on Binance. Just day before this Binance announcement, Ran Neu-Ner, the

Opinion: Upcoming BCH fork is bad luck for big blockers

The air is filled with murmurs and rumblings of the upcoming Bitcoin Cash (BCH) fork. The public must once again pick a side as the coin seemingly engages in a civil war among its proponents. This whole BCH fork ordeal does not appear to be a good thing for whatever arguments were left for BCH as a whole. A Very Brief History Bitcoin hard forked in August of 2017. Put very simply, the Bitcoin development team disagreed internally over how Bitcoin should scale. Should Bitcoin continue using small blocks, or move to larger block size to accommodate transaction traffic. Thus, Bitcoin Cash was born - a cryptocurrency based upon larger block size for scaling. The two camps parted ways. Most notably, Craig Wright (claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto) and Roger Ver broke off toward Bitcoin Cash evangelism. Since August of 2017, many Bitcoin Cash followers have expressed their views to the public. Views that lobby BCH as the prime candidate for crypto use and adoption. Roger Ver is famous for his efforts to further BCH as the go-to crypto payment option. Up until this point, BCH had some decent arguments. Scaling was a crippling problem for Bitcoin back in December of last year. The Bitcoin network was so congested that it was almost inoperable. Over the course of the past year, the Bitcoin Cash crowd has made a few compelling arguments. Transaction costs and speed are important. Although Bitcoin’s Lightning and Liquid networks show promise in the area of scaling while allowing Bitcoin to hold its smaller block size, they’re still solutions which take time to develop. BCH is here and already offers cheap transactions, with the price of becoming more centralized and making running nodes a more complicated affair. BCH Fork: Circa 2018 However, whatever appeal and arguments Bitcoin Cash may have had could be undermined by its current civil war over the right direction to proceed. On November 15, BCH will hard fork. The outcome? Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV (Satoshi’s Vision). The question is - what chain will achieve majority after the fork, leading to a successful alternate currency? The Battle Craig Wright ( CEO of nChain) is the major proponent for Bitcoin SV, and Roger Ver is the main proponent for Bitcoin ABC. Bitcoin SV According to an article on nChain.org, Bitcoin SV is “a new full node implementation of the original Bitcoin protocol now restored in the form of Bitcoin Cash (BCH)”. Bitcoin SV touts the goal of pursuing the vision of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin SV increases the maximum block size to 128mb (up from a current 32mb). Other “upgrades” like atomic swap functionality are also mentioned Jimmy Nguyen (nChain Group CEO) states in the article - “[t]he future of Bitcoin is big blocks, big business, and big growth. Bitcoin SV is an important step toward that big future by advancing the professionalization of Bitcoin.” Bitcoin ABC Bitcoin ABC is the current Bitcoin Cash known today. Roger Ver heads up this side of the coin, showing disagreement with the direction Craig Wright wants to take with BCH (morphing into Bitcoin SV). Wright Vs. Ver Roger Ver recently posted a video on YouTube about the ordeal. In the video, Ver claims “maybe I’ve been fooled”, in reference to Wright. Bitcoin.com stated they would support the Bitcoin ABC, which subsequently led to an email from Wright in response. The e-mail Ver received on Nov. 3, which was posted in the same confessional video by the Bitcoin.com CEO, states: “If you want a war... I will do 2 years of no trade. Nothing. In the war, no coin can trade. If you want ABC, you want s***coins, welcome to bankruptcy. It was nice knowing you. Bitcoin will die before ABC s**** on it. I will see BCH trade at 0 for a few years. Will you? Side with ABC, you hate bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have ******* no idea what that means. You will. I AM Satoshi. Have a nice life. You will now discover me when pissed off. And, no. You Could have had proof. Your choice. **** you, Craig” What’s Going On? According to Ver’s video, it appears that both sides still desire to “support economic freedom”. However, they seemingly cannot agree on the best way to do so. That’s been a major problem since the original Bitcoin fork (creating BCH) last year. The BCH side disagrees with how Bitcoin operates. But if the BCH side can’t even stay together and agree, then why would the public decide to go that direction? What if this happens again in another year, with Bitcoin SV splitting in two, creating even more confusion and adversity? Wasn’t Ver a proponent of larger block size the whole time anyway? That has been a significant part of his pitch throughout the past weeks and months.

The Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork: Bitcoin ABC vs. Bitcoin SV - Ep.046

Bitcoin Magazine technical editor Aaron Van Wirdum breaks down what is going on with the Bitcoin Cash contentious hard fork: who is fighting, over what, and how this could play out, including the nuclear option of a proof of work algorithm change. We discuss whether the battle could deliver a verdict on the question of whether hash power follows price or vice versa, what this says about the strength of proof of work as an algorithm over proof of stake, and what Bitcoin Cash holders should do.

Directed Acyclic Graph: the Future of Blockchain Development

CoinSpeaker Directed Acyclic Graph: the Future of Blockchain Development Blockchain is the hottest topic in the tech market nowadays, but have you imagined its future? Experts categorized Bitcoin as the Blockchain 1.0 due to the increasing popularity. As the technology progressed, Ethereum offered the decentralized platform to applications that execute exactly as programmed and experts began to call it as Blockchain 2.0. After the two versions of the blockchain, the market is battling to see the future of blockchain development, i.e., Blockchain 3.0, which could be Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). But do you know what is DAG? How DAG resolves the scalability and other issues that Blockchain 2.0 cannot solve? Let’s have in-depth knowledge about DAG. What is DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) Directed Acyclic Graph is a data structure which implements the approach of topological ordering. DAG is usually correlated to problems of data processing, finding the best route in navigation, data compression, and scheduling. Due to the Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm, Bitcoin has not been able to create the blocks simultaneously and hence, considered insufficient. All transactions occurring at the same time are stored in the same block and miners have to compete for the validation of blocks. It takes around 10 minutes to create a single block. Creation and validation of too many blocks could take a considerable amount of time and lead to storage issues. Directed Acyclic Graph could be the possible solution as it supports the extension of the storage by X times with X blocks, but the mining time should remain unchanged. NXT was the first blockchain platform that came up with an idea of converting the chain-like storage into a DAG of blocks. Before we explain the concepts used in Directed Acyclic Graph Blockchain, let’s understand how is it different from Blockchain.After we get to know what is Directed Acyclic Graph, it is the time to learn why DAG could be the future of blockchain development and what are the concepts used in these types of platforms. Concepts Used in the DAG-based Platforms No Mining Swift Transactions The Width of the Network Supports Small Payments The Double-Spending Issue Latency No Mining: Bitcoin requires miners to validate the transactions while DAG network has no miners. It enables automated validation to make transactions secure and safer and result in faster processing. So, a user can make the instant transactions. Swift Transactions: since it has no blocks in the network, transactions can directly get in the DAG networks. It is the reason that DAG is quite faster than any other blockchain platform operating on PoS and PoW platforms. The Width of the Network: in a Directed Acyclic Graph Network, every transaction after getting validated requires to be linked to a new and an existing transaction on the network. Linking to a previous transaction every time might widen the network, making it difficult to validate the transactions. Therefore, DAG prefers an existing later transaction to link to a new transaction. The goal of a DAG network is to maintain the width of the network precise to support quick transaction validation. Supports Small Payments: The idea behind introducing DAG technology is to make a network functional and smooth with minimum transaction fees. It can become possible for users to send micro-payments without paying heavy prices, unlike Ethereum and Bitcoin. The Double-Spending Issue: Bitcoin uses the Unspent Transaction Output model, under which users can only have one transaction placement. More than one miner can seek the authority of validating the block by performing the hash function. The validation of a transaction is dependent on the number of transactions supporting it. The transaction rate entering into the network is comparatively lower which can make the transactions safer and quicker. Latency: Time of confirmation and speed of execution are not dependent on the block-size, but on the bandwidth between communicating nodes. Therefore, there is no restriction on how much the system can scale. DAG technology has been used by many developers to upgrade the future of blockchain development. Let’s look below at the projects built on DAG which have the potential to overcome the issues of scaling or security. Technologies Based on DAG IOTA IOTA, the first DAG-based crypto project, aims to eliminate the concept of a miner’s fees. The platforms like Bitcoin and Ethereum require miners to approve the transactions and the fees is essential to incentivize validators for writing the history of records to the blockchain. But IOTA assigns the duty of mining to every member of the network; every user on the network is also a transaction validator. A user has to approve the last two transactions to get a transaction verified by IOTA. Since everyone participates to reach a consensus, the network becomes faster and scalable. Designed initially to serve as a backbone fo

PR: IXE Token Backed by Blockchain Powered Education Platform Little Detective

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release. Little Detective will be launched in various stages, starting from China, followed by South-East Asian countries and Europe. November 13, 2018: After immense success with ICO and now listed in LAToken, Exrates and Idex, Little Detective is finally on its development and production stage and announced about prospective discussions with some European countries for the distribution of its next-generation blockchain edutainment platform. As the first blockchain powered edutainment portal, Little Detective is especially targeting the developing countries that suffer from limited access to quality education, teachers and teaching supplies. “We have devised a self-learning and exploratory edutainment platform which aims to effectively address the shortage of teaching supplies and lack of access to quality education in countries around the world. We are on our way to discuss the distribution of our innovative platform in some European countries.” Little Detective has already announced about the plans of launching the platform in China, Asia and now Europe. Developed by Ixtus Edutainment, Little Detective is the first blockchain-powered edutainment portal, which aims to forward democratic participation in education across communities all over the world. The platform is targeted towards pre-school and lower primary school children. Little Detective has declared to roll out its futuristic platform in various phases. China constitutes the biggest market for Ixtus and the company has chosen the Sino market for the Phase 1 of the launch of Little Detective. The platform will debut in China in 2019. “We have decided to launch Little Detective initially in China and we are targeting first-tier provinces including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. We are also targeting highly populated provinces in the country such as Chongqing, Chengdu, Tianjin that altogether show a massive population totaling to 111 million”, stated Mr Alan BEK, CEO of Ixtus. Little Detective is aimed to create a holistic learning ambience where the little users will be motivated to develop critical thinking and decision-making skills along with motor and speech skills. The platform is inspired by Western ideas of education and with China fast becoming highly receptive to Western thoughts, the Sino market easily qualifies to be the debut base for Little Detective. The second phase of the launch of Little Detective is scheduled to start 12 months after the China launch and is declared to target major South-East Asian countries including Vietnam and Indonesia. “A lot of Asian countries today are fast incorporating English in primary education but unfortunately lack of a proper curriculum to teach the language is a major obstacle here. Moreover, we have also witnessed shortage in supply of quality teaches as well as training, development and teaching methods in these highly populated countries that prevent quality education from reaching to the masses. We are looking forward to bridge the gap here with our blockchain edutainment portal.” The phase 3 and 4 of the launch of Little Detective will be carried out in rest of Asia Pacific, Europe and other parts of the world. “There are many developing economies in Europe and other parts of the world that have prioritized education policies but suffer from restricted access to quality education and shortage of resources. We are focused on helping these nations to overcome such shortages with our self-learning & exploratory platform.” For more details, please go to http://ixtus.io CMC link : https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ixtus-edutainment/ Contact Email Address info@ixtus.io Supporting Link http://ixtus.io This is a paid press release.

CoinFund's Jake Brukhman and Multicoin's Tushar Jain on Generalized Mining - Ep.92

Jake Brukhman of CoinFund and Tushar Jain of Multicoin Capital discuss a new trend among crypto funds: generalized mining, also called mining 2.0, in which investors participate in the networks in order to seed activity on them. For instance, an investor might offer disk space on a file storage network or provide capital on a decentralized lending network. They explain why it makes more sense to do this in the early days of a network than when it's matured, whether this will lead away from a peer-to-peer vision for crypto toward more professionalization and how this affects the basic premise of the fat protocols thesis. We also discuss how this impacts how crypto funds hire, do their accounting and reporting and structure their LP agreements. Thank you to our sponsors!

Bitcoin Cash [BCH] proponent: DSV changes it from being something that is effectively legal

Craig Wright aka Faketoshi, a strong believer of the Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision implementation for the Bitcoin Cash [BCH] blockchain, recently appeared on a video hosted by Tone Vays, a Bitcoin proponent, to speak about the upcoming hard fork, which is scheduled on November 15, 2018. Wright started off by speaking about block size. He remarked that there should not be a block size and that the original version of Bitcoin also does not have a block size. He went on to say that Bitcoin did not have an economic value in its initial stages. Wright said: “It was added as a temporary measure only because there was no economics in Bitcoin. You couldn’t even buy two pizzas with 50,000 Bitcoin at that stage, really, I mean there were occasional exchanges of silly things like that but the reality was there was no economic value to Bitcoin” He continued to say that this is actually an attempt to change the protocol. Wright further spoke about the opcode the Bitcoin ABC team wants to add, OP_CHECKDATASIGVERIFY [DSV]. The self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto said: “If you consider the things like DSV and whatever else, is not part of Bitcoin and everything that we’re doing is the original Bitcoin re-enabled. That’s the distinction. So the difference they want in saying that DSV should be there, is the addition of something that changes Bitcoin from effectively something that is legal in every single country on earth contrary what you see in the press” Wright added that there has not been any country which has had “Bitcoin illegal ever”. According to him, DSV alters everything and would create a bucket shop. He went on to say: “Now, that creates a bucket shop, is what it’s known under law. It was actually first taken up in the Supreme Court in the US in 1906. It’s an illegal derivative trading for our platform and we just saw finally a DEX being shut down by the SEC and others will. Wright stated that people do not understand that Bitcoin is a settlement engine, the central nodes, the miners are settlement and that P2P means that two people transact together, without any machine. He said: “P2P means you and I transact together now this idea of it’s decentralized trade, you and I transact together there’s no machine here so there’s always a person involved and as soon as you do that, you alter the nature of the system it’s no longer fungible because fungibility is not a technical issue it is a legal issue.” He continued to say that once there is any transaction which contains the DSV, it would be a breach of the law. This would effectively mean that it will no longer be valid in America, UK, China and other countries, he added. Moreover, people will not be allowed to carry this forward without being registered and a miner will have to break the law in order to valid a transaction. Wright further added: “it’s different to something in script where someone can script a code and link to an external server that’s completely and utterly different. So there is a difference between building something into a software platform or having a code language that allows you to build something and people don’t seem to get this differentiation.” The post Bitcoin Cash [BCH] proponent: DSV changes it from being something that is effectively legal appeared first on AMBCrypto.

43-year-old Thrown in Prison After Trying to Bomb a UK Crypto Business

A British citizen has been sentenced to six and a half years in prison after he tried to bomb a British cryptocurrency firm. The 43-year-old convict resented the company because of their failure to reset his account password. According to the local police, the pack with a bomb remained unopened at the office premises for over five months. Cryptopay Office Could Be Bombed The London Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command noted that a functional explosive device was sent to the Cryptopay office earlier this year. Michael Salonen, a Gullspang, Sweden resident, sent the explosive device in a padded envelope. In March this year, a man working at the company’s Hackney office block noticed the package and tried to open it. However, he soon became suspicious and alerted the authorities. Bomb experts then came and defused the device while cops from the London Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command poured in. It was later found that the package had been delivered to the office in November 2017. Cryptopay had not moved into the premises at the time of the package’s arrival. The space was occupied by an accounting firm that was being used by Cryptopay. Salonen probably picked up the address and thought Cryptopay were located there. Interpol Helped Unveil the Case The British investigators tried to match the DNA found from the package with UK databases, but their efforts went in vain. They later sought help from Interpol who helped track down Salonen who was arrested on May 12 this year. He was accused of sending threatening letters to individuals in the UK and Sweden and for attempting to bomb the Cryptopay offices. In one of the threatening letters he sent, he had included a white powder, which was later found harmless. His residence also contained bomb components. The Met Police found that Salonen was a Cryptopay customer who asked the company to reset his password. His request was refused by the company, which cited its privacy policy for the same. A company spokesperson said: “[Salonen] contacted our support and we gave him the link to reset his password. He then asked if our team (a support agent) could do it, which we are not able to do.” Commander Clarke Jarett, head of the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command commented: “Salonen seemingly made and sent a device that had the capability to seriously harm and even kill over something as inconsequential as a change of password. Fortunately, the bomb did not detonate. It was due to sheer luck that the recipient ripped opened the package in the middle rather than using the envelope flap which would have activated the device.” Salonen has been found guilty of attempted murder and sending malicious letters. 43-year-old Thrown in Prison After Trying to Bomb a UK Crypto Business was originally found on [blokt] - Blockchain, Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency News.

Electroneum - minere no seu celular

Por: Livecoins Electroneum (ETN) é uma criptomoeda com pouco mais de um ano. É um projeto inglês capitaneado por Richard Ells. A sua proposta é bem simples: ser a criptomoeda do mass adoption (adoção em massa). Apesar de simples é algo extremamente audacioso e difícil. O Bitcoin em seus 10 anos ainda não conseguiu. Porém, Richard e sua equipe tem um plano até bem simples para isso - um aplicativo de celular que torna bem simples operações com ETN - tão ou até mais simples que com cartão de credito. Ok, podemos dizer que praticamente qualquer carteira de celular de criptomoedas teria essa característica. Tanto por isso como para incentivar o uso do aplicativo a carteira vem com um simulador de mineração, apesar da mineração ser simulada e não utilizar recursos e processamento do seu celular os pagamentos são reais, você é efetivamente pago por deixar o aplicativo rodando. Verdade seja dita que hoje são pequenos valores, mas não deixa de ser atrativo, ainda mais se considerar o desempenho do Bitcoin de meros centavos para dezenas de milhares de dólares em seu maior preço. Neste um ano de vida entre altos e baixos a ETN valorizou próximo de 100% (até mais para quem comprou no início do ICO) saindo de 1 centavo de dólar para 1,5 centavo nos valores de hoje. Vale comentar que nos melhores momentos do mercado de criptos 1 ETN chegou a valer mais de 20 centavos de dólar e mesmo após um ano de grandes baixas os investidores do ICO ainda estão com um lucro maior que 100%. Além desse desempenho de preço, ETN tem formado diversas parcerias e depois de um longo período operando com apenas uma Exchange criptos x criptos, esta expandido sua presença com cada vez mais exchanges crypto x crypto e iniciando negociações em Exchange com pares EURO x ETN e USD x ETN (em breve) na LIQUID. Corre o boato que em breve ETN será listado na BINANCE, a maior (e possivelmente melhor) Exchange do mundo. COMO FAZER PARTE Primeiro passo é abrir uma conta no https://electroneum.com/ em seguida instalar o App (infelizmente devido a políticas da Apple por enquanto disponível apenas para ANDROID). As orientações são simples e fáceis de seguir. Com isso você já pode começar a minerar. Como mais um incentivo para a divulgação e mass adoption, pessoas indicadas e seus indicadores recebem um pequeno bônus ao longo da mineração, basta incluir o código (referral code) do usuário que fez a indicação, por exemplo: 345F2D. A velocidade de mineração sofre algumas variações, mas os ganhos a depender do aparelho e da simulação vão ser entre 30 e 150 ETN por mês // 360 - 1800 ETN por ano. Na cotação atual não são grandes valores, mas sempre bom lembrar que ETN, apesar dos percalços do primeiro ano, tem cumprido suas propostas e desenvolvido cada vez mais parcerias. Feita essa primeira parte, querendo aumentar sua posição em ETN o caminho seria comprando via Exchanges, infelizmente não temos Exchanges no Brasil operando com ETN o que significa que para comprar ETN é necessário criar uma conta em uma Exchange fora do Brasil. É razoavelmente fácil, eu abri minha conta na CRYPTOPIA, mas temos outras opções: Lista Exchanges ETN. O par mais negociado é BTC x ETN, e daí fica simples pois basta comprar BTC em uma Exchange brasileira como Bitcointrade, Foxbit, Negociecoins, ou qualquer outra e transferir para Cryptopia ou outra Exchange que preferir e comprar seus ETN´s. A primeira vez é um pouco mais trabalhoso, mas depois que se tem tudo montado é simples. Vale comentar que não se tem data ainda para início de pares na BINANCE. STORAGE e COLD STORAGE Uma vez que foi comprado ETN, se tem 3 opções: manter na Exchange, essa é tradicionalmente a pior opção pelo risco de hackers invadirem a Exchange escolhida e roubarem todas as moedas, além de muitas vezes em caso de forks não se receber a nova moeda (como ocorreram em diversos forks de BTC, como Bitcoin cash por exemplo) Transferir para o App, o App é uma opção segura, mas tão segura quanto sua segurança digital, se seu computador / celular não estiver protegido suas moedas podem ser facilmente roubadas (isso vale para qualquer moeda, inclusive R$ em contas bancarias). PAPER WALLET, Essa é a opção mais segura, no link pode se gerar uma carteira, imprimir e guardar em um local seguro, pode se ter várias copias e distribui las em locais de confiança. Todo o processo pode ser feito off-line, sem nunca expor a carteira na rede. O grande risco aqui é de se perder a carteira impressa e, portanto, todos os fundos (similar a outros cold storages, como a Nano S por exemplo) KYC ETN instituiu a necessidade de efetuar o KYC - known your customer. Apesar de desagradar algumas pessoas, é uma atitude importante para viabilizar novas parcerias, principalmente com seu grande alvo que são as empresas de telecomunicações e ter acesso a um público ainda maior em todos os continentes. Um mal necessário que visa principalmente evitar o uso da moeda para lavagem de dinheiro e que já é bem usual nos ICO´s. São 3 níveis, de aco

Eerily accurate crypto predictions from January 2018

December 2017 - January 2018. Arguably the most amazingly exuberant time in cryptocurrency history - as far a price gains go. At the height of all the action, the air was filled with talks of an “adoption curve“, with possibly no end in sight for such price exuberance. But some predictions from the time are eerily spot on. However, one crypto influencer was far too experienced to believe this type of market would last very long. Ryan Selkis, Aka TwoBitIdiot on Twitter and Medium, published his “95 Crypto Theses for 2018” on January 2nd of this year - and it includes some surprisingly accurate predictions. Here’s a few interesting points. Several Notable Predictions Prediction #2 - “I call it the cryptoasset barbell: cryptocurrencies (sky’s the limit), utility tokens (heading to zero), and “smart securities” (coming soon)”. This appears to be pretty accurate. Tokenized securities seem to be where the crypto market is heading, with September seeing an 80 percent failure rate for ICOs. The above ties in with #7, which in part states - “Crypto-securities aren’t really a thing yet, but they will be massive, and they will actually have measurable fundamental value”. @coinbase CEO @brian_armstrong: "We do feel a substantial subset of these tokens will be securities...we want to be the legal compliant place where you can start to trade these tokens that are classified as securities.” #SecurityTokens https://t.co/YwbGdNhVh4 — Security Token (@security_token) September 8, 2018 At this stage, it’s a logical question to wonder the actual value of utility tokens, in that they don’t necessarily gain value based on the performance of the underlying company in the same way stocks do. Tying in with prediction #5, - “Most utility tokens, then, will go to zero, regardless of team quality and execution. You simply don’t need to hold them but for momentum & greater fool investing. When the market lacks “higher order” investors for speculators to flip to, assets will unwind. Viciously.” Utility tokens are merely incentives. Badges, streaks and points are the same thing. Neither is big on a global scale — Pomp (@APompliano) June 8, 2018 #20 was perhaps one of the most interesting predictions, detailing the major discounts currently seen. Selkis writes - “There is no rhyme or reason to prices in crypto, and there will not be in 2018. Best to embrace that this will be a sentiment-driven market until the crash. Stay safe and embrace the opportunity to sit on the sidelines and do research! There will be gems to swoop up in the coming 99% off sale”. Many crypto assets are still trading at such a discount, as chronicled in Coingape’s article, Crypto Sale: Top Price Gainers Available at >90% Discount From their ATH Prices, published in mid-September. The respectable part of these price predictions is that they was made during two of the most euphoric months in crypto, when it was hard to see past all the positivity. Predictions Still TBD #10 -“BCH is tough to root for, but you have to be long as a hedge. If BCH loses badly, I doubt we’ll ever see on-chain BTC scaling, and Core’s stranglehold on the dev roadmap will be cemented. But if BCH wins, it could take down the whole asset class. Rock. Hard place.” It will be interesting to see how the upcoming Bitcoin Cash fork on November 15 plays into this statement. #18 - “Stablecoins will work until they don’t. Sure, the Basecoin and MakerDAO teams seem strong, but these things will always break under (not so) black swan market conditions. And like the fiat currencies they aim to replace, once they break, they’ll be broken for good.” Seeing stablecoins as the new fad, the market may be in the middle of figuring itself out in this regard. TBD still on this one. Although Tether was pretty broken when it went down to $0.86 per USDT in October. #58 also mentions crypto tax difficulties. “We need better crypto tax solutions. It’s mind-blowingly complex to do all this reporting”. Hopefully the IRS works on this one soon because crypto and taxes are brutal to record for honest tax paying citizens. *Crypto Insider is sponsored in part by Blockmodo. as part of our arrangement with them, Crypto Insider may occasionally link to, and quote, Blockmodo when appropriate. this is done at the discretion of our staff.

John McAfee Gets New Tattoo for Skycoin Promotion

Internet maverick John McAfee is sporting a new tattoo in honor of his collaboration with the Skycoin platform. One thing you can say about John McAfee is that he never does anything in half-measure. The cybersecurity specialist and cryptocurrency enthusiast usually plows straight ahead when something catches his interest. Over the last year or so, McAfee has stirred up quite a bit of debate by his various cryptocurrency promotions, which he usually heavily pushes on Twitter. This time, he’s taking a different tack as he is immortalizing his current collaboration with Skycoin by having a tattoo done. More Ink for John McAfee In a few Tweets, McAfee posted several videos of him getting the Skycoin tattoo done. The tattoo is located in the dead center of his back, right across the spine. He notes that this was an exceptionally painful spot. A tattoo that crosses the spine is at the top of the pain charts. This was my second such tattoo. At one point during my https://t.co/RN53ipFhy6 tattoo I had to reach deep to find the appropriate curse words. pic.twitter.com/aZg25Nrgg9 — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) November 8, 2018 In one Tweet, he says: A tattoo that crosses the spine is at the top of the pain charts. This was my second such tattoo. At one point during my Skycoin.net tattoo I had to reach deep to find the appropriate curse words. He elaborates in another Twitter thread of how painful getting the tattoo was with some extremely salty language. One video shows the number of tattoos McAfee currently sports, and he shows some self-deprecating humor when someone asked about his ab regimen (he sports a healthy gut), saying: Booze, cigarettes, zero exercise and experimental recreational research chemicals. I can skate by on this regimen because I am 73 and most people label the stomach ad meaningless compared to the miracle that I am still alive. Staying Busy McAfee is one busy person. His current promotion is for Skycoin, a company that provides various blockchain and cryptocurrency solutions, such as trading and a blockchain-based network of Skyminers, which are nodes that receive coins in exchange for providing services and not for solving mathematical equations. I got a Skycoin (https://t.co/2oeokRUOME) tattoo today. My tech folks will stitch a two minute video together that should capture the essence of the experience. For now, this short clip should summarize. Why Skycoin? If you have to ask, you've been living in a fucking closet. pic.twitter.com/c6plwQrH2t — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) November 7, 2018 Back in June, John McAfee found himself in the hospital in a rather serious condition. He said that he had been poisoned by his enemies. After he was released from the hospital and recovered, he announced the McAfee Foundation Crypto Art Program. This program would offer artists a one-month residency at Team McAfee’s Beach Cottage, offering the artists exposure and covering all their costs. The one caveat was that any art created would belong to the Foundation. Of course, McAfee always seems to have drama going on. In August, he claimed that two individuals who worked with him stole $62 million in tokens. The two individuals deny the accusation. The latest tidbit on the internet maverick is that there’s going to be a movie made about his life. The movie is currently in pre-production and will star Michael Keaton as McAfee and Seth Rogen as the Wired journalist who wrote the article on which the movie is based. The movie is described as: Keaton will play McAfee, creator of the McAfee Antivirus software. McAfee cashed in his fortune, left civilization, and moved to the jungle in Belize, where he set up a compound of guns, sex, and madness. Rogen will portray Wired magazine investigator Ari Furman, who accepts what he thinks is a run-of-the-mill assignment to interview McAfee, but once he arrives in Belize, he finds himself pulled into McAfee’s escalating paranoia, slippery reality, and murder.

Rate3 Bridges Enterprises with Blockchain’s Benefits Through Asset Tokenization

SINGAPORE - Rate3 envisions a future where all forms of assets - including money, stocks, real estate, intellectual property and even an individual’s time - are interchanged seamlessly between application users of various public blockchains. Over the past few decades, global economic trade has almost single-handedly propelled developing economies into significantly higher standards of living. Blockchain technology has the potential to further improve upon the legacy infrastructure used for such trade, which will in turn, through the trade of tokenized digital assets, lead to further wealth creation among individuals and enterprises. The addressable market of assets applicable for tokenization is worth in excess of USD $700T today. In order to capture a portion of that, Rate3 is building the tools for asset tokenization and identity management for use across both the Ethereum and Stellar public blockchains. Doing so provides individuals and enterprises with a bridge to leverage the many benefits of both these blockchains, including fast and ultra-cheap transactions, 24/7-settlement hours, fractional ownership and programmability features. This vision has been backed to the tune of USD $17 million in funding by thought-leading investors such as Insignia Ventures, Alpha JWC, Matrix Partners China, Node Capital, Fenbushi Digital and FBG Capital. “Tokenization represents the first significant milestone towards bridging enterprises with the advantages of open, public blockchains,” Jake Goh, CEO of Rate3 remarked. “We envision a future whereby all assets of material value will become tokenized and easily transferable on blockchains. This will greatly add to the liquidity of the asset and in turn improve the enterprises’ working capital position and operational efficiency.” In spite of the constant proliferation of closely-related blockchain projects over the past couple of years, two key sector-wide issues still remain unanswered. First, there being no existing secure and common legal framework to tie ownership and control of real-world assets to digital tokens, and second, an extremely fragmented and siloed identity ecosystem. Rate3 provides solutions to both these problems in the following manner. Secure and Common Legal Framework Rate3 works closely with licensed, independent trust companies to provide absolute legal guarantees on asset ownership rights for token holders. Each token holder gains peace of mind from the knowledge that a reputable, government-licensed trust company is guaranteeing the redeemability of the tokens they own for the backing asset, and that they are entitled to legal recourse should these ownership rights not be fulfilled. Rate3 also complies strictly with local regulations based on guidance provided by legal advisors. Such a model ensures full transparency and confidence in any asset token of this protocol. In doing so, this avoids the opaqueness and uncertainties around ownership rights which have plagued other projects in the past. Openly-Compatible, Reusable Digital Identity Ethereum today occupies by far the largest share of application-development activity within the blockchain space, owing to the programming flexibility provided by its Turing-complete programming language. Conversely, Stellar’s payments-optimized blockchain design allows for applications built on top of it enjoy fast and ultra-cheap transaction fees. 100,000 transactions on Stellar today are estimated to cost less than USD 0.01 to execute, with each averaging 3-5 seconds in settlement time. Rate3 is currently built to be interoperable with both the Ethereum and Stellar public blockchain ecosystems (with more planned for the future), enabling it to draw on the key unique value propositions of each. The industry-wide shift towards greater customer personalization has seen nearly all applications requiring users to link their app usage with some form of identity. It is therefore beneficial to have an identity protocol allowing users to, upon consent, tap on a single, reusable identity, tied to the various wallet addresses that they control, that in turn syncs to the many future applications of both Ethereum and Stellar ecosystems. The same would apply as well to future applications of tokenized assets too (e.g. a platform for investors to trade fractional artwork via tokens representing ownership). This would reduce duplicated KYC efforts, which would have been otherwise necessary, along with the consequent potential data breaches that could occur. Recognizing a Greater Market Need Rate3 began its blockchain journey predominantly as a cross-border payments protocol, leveraging on its team’s experience in operating RateX - a fintech startup enabling users to save on bank FX fees while shopping cross-border at merchants such as Amazon and Taobao. As such, it was natural for the project to originally aspire to build a cross-border settlement & clearance network for e-commerce, and consequently reduce the cost of co
