Will this be the year of proof-of-stake coins?

There has been an increasing number of 51% attacks on proof-of-work (PoW) based cryptocurrency networks. In these types of attacks, a malicious entity is able to gain control of the majority (51% or greater) of a digital currency’s hashrate and can then potentially begin to engage in double spending. This occurs when the attacker spends the same funds on more than one occasion. 51% Attacks On Major Cryptocurrency Networks On January 5th, 2019, the San Francisco-based crypto exchange, Coinbase, detected a “deep chain reorganization” of the Ethereum Classic (ETC) blockchain. The leading US-based digital currency trading platform was forced to halt deposits and withdrawals due to “double spends, totaling 88,500 ETC”, an amount valued at approximately $460,000 at the time of the incident. On January 10th, 2019, a Reddit user named /taipalag posted a warning message claiming that a single entity was in control of over 51% of digital currency Dash’s (DASH) hashrate. The Redditor shared several DASH addresses (as detailed in his post) which appeared to be controlled by one person or a certain group of users. He wrote that these few addresses alone had been controlling well over 53% of the crypto’s hashrate. Notably, Dash and Ethereum Classic are both top 20 cryptocurrencies in terms of market capitalization. Although the developers of both these popular digital currencies claim they have things under control and will be working towards improving the security of their blockchains, we must take a step back and try to objectively evaluate these incidents. Will This Be The Year Of Proof-of-Stake Coins? While Bitcoin maximalists and many other prominent crypto analysts claim that proof-of-work is the most secure protocol for reaching distributed consensus, it’s possible that more users this year will begin to invest in proof-of-stake (PoS) based digital assets. Proponents of PoS argue that if block validators (called forgers) stake their cryptocurrency holdings, then they will be incentivized to accurately and efficiently verify transactions. That’s because they risk losing their staked amount if they act dishonestly. Those who support proof-of-stake also claim that it offers a greater level of security when compared to PoW. In this article, we shall look at three different PoS-based cryptocurrency platforms that continue to release upgrades and appear to be developing solutions that are in high demand. These include Ark (ARK), Stratis (STRAT), and PIVX. Ark: “All-In-One” Blockchain Solutions Platform Ark (ARK) is an “all-in-one” blockchain solutions platform that aims to “provide users, developers, and startups with innovative” distributed ledger technology (DLT)-enabled software. According to Ark’s official website, its developers plan to “create an entire ecosystem of linked chains and a virtual spiderweb of endless use-cases.” Similar to Lisk, Ark uses the delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus protocol to manage its blockchain network. ARK token holders can vote for 51 delegates (transaction validators) who may be chosen to forge new blocks on the platform’s network. Delegates are compensated for validating transactions, and they can then choose to distribute these rewards to the users that may have voted for them. Proof-of-stake coins such as Ark are preferred by some investors because they can be used to earn a passive income. While most PoS tokens require that users leave their wallets online, Ark holders can earn passive interest on their tokens even when they’re offline. One of the only requirements for receiving rewards for Ark holders is that they must vote for delegates. All Ark token investors that cast their votes will receive payouts on their staked amount. Ark tokens can also be stored on hardware wallets including the Ledger Nano S and users can vote directly from the device, without having to bring their staked tokens online. Stratis (STRAT): Write Smart Contracts Using C# Another PoS-based token project called Stratis (STRAT) also seems to have an active development team, as there have recently been many different updates released for the network. As mentioned on its official website, Stratis is a blockchain-based platform designed specifically for businesses. Stratis’ proprietary software can be used by corporations to develop decentralized applications (dApps). The Stratis platform allows users to deploy their own blockchain-enabled solutions using C#. Certain programs can also be developed using sidechains, in order to reduce transaction processing times. When first launched, Stratis was a PoW-based coin, however, it has now switched over to a PoS consensus protocol. To stake coins on its network, users must have a copy of the Stratis Staking Wallet Client and maintain a connection to the internet. Stratis token holders who stake their holdings earn a payout of 0.5-1% per year. While this payout amount is considerably lower than what’s offered by proof-of-stake coins, the Stratis

PIVX Launches Dedicated iOS Wallet App

The PIVX project has announced the launch of its dedicated iOS wallet app, the first of its kind for an anonymous proof-of-stake project. Creating a working product is quite an accomplishment, but succeeding in having it listed in the Apple Store is a feat unto itself as only 7 of the top 100 cryptocurrencies have managed do so. It actually took multiple application submissions and months of working with Apple support to achieve the listing. PIVX is currently trading at $0.8423. (JF)

How to Setup a Nullex (NLX) Masternode

This is a tutorial on how to setup a NulleX Masternode. NullTX and NulleX are official partners and NLX is our official cryptocurrency. NulleX is a privacy centric cryptocurrency similar to Dash and PIVX. If you are familiar with how masternodes work with DASH / PIVX, they work pretty much the same with NulleX. Before we start, keep in mind you do lock away 50,000 NLX in order to start the masternode, at the current price that is roughly $675. The good news is, you do not need any programming experience to set up the masternode. Without further ado, let’s get started. Step 1: Create a VPS and Download Putty We will be using Digital Ocean as our VPS provider, so go ahead and create an account on digitalocean.com. When creating the VPS, make sure it is an Ubuntu 16.04 x64 operating system, NOT Ubuntu 18 or 14. That is important to ensure that the install script works correctly. Also, make sure to enable IPv6 and Private Networking support, which is important if some time in the future you decide to run multiple NAVs on a single VPS. For simplicity’s sake, for this tutorial we will only set up a single masternode on the droplet. Once you create the VPS, you will receive an email with information that looks like this: Droplet Name: nullex-nav-tutorial IP Address: 142.93.81.140 Username: root Password: f21ce8da673a5440ff95730d65 Next, download and install Putty from putty.org. This is the program we will be using in order to communicate with the VPS and configure the masternode. Step 2: Login to the VPS and add a user Go ahead and run Putty in the host name enter the IP address of the droplet that you received in your email, in our case it will be 142.93.81.140, keep the port at the default value (22). Click open and if you get a Putty Security Alert notification just hit yes, you should then see the following: Type in root, then copy past the password that you’ve received in the email. When pasting a string in putty simply right click. You won’t see anything happen in the terminal but that is due to security. Just press enter again and follow the prompts by pasting the password one more time then setting a new password. At this point you should see something like this: We do not want to be running commands as root, it’s just bad practice. So let’s create a user and give it sudo permission. Run the following 2 commands: adduser nullexnav1 usermod -aG sudo nullexnav1 Follow the prompt after the first command and once both are complete close the terminal window. Go ahead and start up putty one more time, put the same IP address in the host field, but this time login as nullexnav1 NOT root. Step 3: Download and run the install script Big shoutout to Joe Uhren aka NLXionaire from the NulleX Technology Team for creating this script, it makes life so much easier when setting up the masternodes. Run the following commands: git clone https://github.com/NLXionaire/nullex-nav-installer cd ./nullex-nav-installer chmod +x ./nullex-nav-installer.sh sudo ./nullex-nav-installer.sh -N 4 At this point the install file should begin working and after a minute or two you will be greeted with the following prompt: Don’t worry about it, just hit enter with the default selected option. You will see this prompt one more time, once again simply hit enter. Once you are passed that, you will see the script start syncing with the blockchain. At the time of writing it takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Once the sync is done, you will be greeted with the following: The value we are interested in is the one highlighted. This is the masternode private key, do not share it with anyone. Copy it and save it on a notepad because you will need it later. In our case the private key is: 88upKZ7aEwQ7uPWD47tDXVgK99tMfJLUA1gp7ZQD7tGRUNdHWTS Step 4: Download the Windows-qt wallet, sync it, encrypt it, and send 50,000 NLX This step is pretty self explanatory, download the latest windows wallet from the NulleX website, run it and let it fully sync. Once the sync is complete, generate a new address. Go to Tools -> Debug Console, and type in the following command to get a receiving address: getaccountaddress nav1 NOTE: You can use any label for the address it doesn’t have to be nav1. Save the receiving address as that is where you will want to send exactly 50,000 NLX. Before, sending any coins to the wallet make sure that it is encrypted. Go to Settings -> Encrypt Wallet. Make sure to save your passphrase because if you lose it your funds are lost for good. At this point feel free to send the 50,000 NLX to the previously saved address and wait for the transaction to fully confirm. Step 5: Start the Masternode on the cold wallet At this point we are almost ready to start the masternode. Go to the debug console again (Tools -> Debug Console), but this time type the following command: masternode outputs The result should be a json string with 2 values, the transaction hash and the output index: Save both the txhash and the outputidx in the notepad.

Meetup Segurança e Vulnerabilidades Blockchain, novidades

Por: Livecoins Para discutir a temática de vulnerabilidades na rede Ethereum, foi realizado um Meetup sobre Segurança em Blockchain, que foi uma live ao vivo realizada gratuitamente na segunda 26 de novembro de 2018. O especialista em Ethereum, Fábio Hildebrand, explicou que apesar de a maturidade do ecossistema ter aumentado, ataques a smart contracts continuam acontecendo. Ataques recentes à SpankChain, Useless Ethereum Token, e Fomo3d foram mencionados.. De acordo com Fábio, desenvolvedores de SM devem sempre testar a segurança de suas aplicações, escrever as documentações de forma detalhada, e se necessário (para contratos que transacionem altos valores), contratar auditores externos para conferir o código ou ainda abrir um processo de Bug Bounties. Uma dica de Fábio também, é procurar se engajar com a comunidade de desenvolvedores, que em alguns casos fazem uma auditoria de qualidade e de forma grátis nos diversos projetos criados que tenham um impacto positivo para a comunidade. Abrir um canal para receber notificações de ameaças no código para todas as iniciativas é importante, mesmo que apenas um e-mail (básico), pois abrir um Issue no GitHub e tornar a vulnerabilidade pública pode ser prejudicial para projetos, principalmente até que os mesmos sejam resolvidos, podendo ser explorados por atacantes externos atentos. Para melhorar a segurança dos SC, foi criada em 2017 a iniciativa Solidified, que confere a segurança e auditoria dos contratos, sendo Fábio um dos técnicos da iniciativa que trabalha direto do Brasil. Qualquer especialista em segurança blockchain pode ser um auditor e receber recompensas pelo seu trabalho. O processo hoje é executado de forma manual, mas uma Dapp está em desenvolvimento, com previsão de lançamento em 2020. A solução acompanhará a plataforma de bug bounties (já em funcionamento em web.solidified.io) e dum mercado de predição de bugs. A ideia da Solidified, que já está em funcionamento, é criar um mercado de Bug Bounty, garantindo formas mais fáceis de encontrar uma auditoria de contratos inteligentes e com orçamentos justos, ideia semelhante ao projeto OpenZeppelin. A Solidified criou um ambiente na Amazon AWS para desenvolvedores interessados em auditar códigos como treino, que é um projeto educacional no estilo capture the flag. Outro palestrante do Meetup sobre segurança foi o Everton Melo, que detectou um Bug na OmiseGo e outro na PIVX, e recebeu os créditos por seu trabalho de ambas as equipes. Everton, que palestrou também na Roadsec 2018 em São Paulo com a palestra “Como hackear uma blockchain“, falou também sobre a proposta da ISO / TC 307, que é uma proposta para padronizar aplicações blockchain e DLTs. Um outro ponto de sua fala é a analise do Github do Bitcoin Core, Bitcoin Cash e Bitcoin Gold, que de acordo com o analista possuem muitas diferenças, destacando que o Core possui inúmeras vantagens no ambiente open, além de controle de versão superior a seus forks. Fonte: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/10TR3It78M1AGvhNBUbbNAyoj08atzXAurbEaoWabspE/edit#slide=id.g468f7d3cc2_0_2 De acordo com Everton, as tecnologias devem ser sempre analisadas por seu GitHub, visto que o ponto forte das criptomoedas é o seu código fonte aberto, e que quando detectadas falhas nos projetos, as comunidades devem aceitar e buscar corrigir os problemas sem ataques ao desenvolvedor auditor. O palestrante citou o problema com uma comunidade ao indagar as bases da cripto, que além de não ter acatado as suas críticas, atacou pessoalmente o desenvolvedor. De acordo com Everton, o Bitcoin Core possui uma enorme lentidão ao confirmar falhas devido a complexidade do projeto, e quando detectadas devem ser apontadas pelo auditor a versão do código do qual foram detectadas falhas, para facilitar o trabalho de correção das mesmas e dar mais credibilidade ao seu trabalho. Além disso, destacou o problema do OverFlow presente no código do Bitcoin, que inclusive foi destaque em um Twitter de Jimmy Song recentemente. Para finalizar, Everton destacou que dentre os inúmeros projetos que existem no cenário atual, o que ele mais acredita no longo prazo seria o que une o Ethereum com a Zcash, chamado projeto Alchemy. Em um mercado com inúmeras criptomoedas, existem várias com boas ideias, mas com execuções que não são boas, logo ficar atento ao investir em projetos é importante, destaca Melo. Para quem possui o interesse em aprender a linguagem de programação Solidity há várias opções na web gratuitas, e tende a ser uma das linguagens mais utilizadas por desenvolvedores de blockchain nos próximos anos. Estudar segurança da informação também é muito importante, a fim de evitar problemas com Dapps e Smart Contracts, pois como a Blockchain é imutável, após finalizar a programação e colocar os mesmos na rede fica difícil a correção de bugs no ambiente. Para Fábio, o ataque em contratos na TestNet é difícil, mas no ambiente da MainNet e principalmente que envolve valores, os atacantes podem ter mais ince

Daily Cryptocurrency News - 24th November 2018

Here’s the latest cryptocurrency news of 24th November 2018: Everyone’s Taking Shots At Bitcoin - Novogratz, Anthony Pompliano and Dr. Nouriel Roubini In a market like this, everyone likes to express their opinion about Bitcoin. Some might be good, some might be bad and some are just interesting. The famous Crypto investor Mike Novogratz expressed his thoughts on Bitcoin claiming that it ‘sucks’ to have or create a business in these times. Speaking to Financial Times, he declared: “2017 was just fun, it was almost stupid. [But] this year has been challenging. It sucks to build a business in a bear market...[Staff] anxiety levels go up when crypto goes down...In most traditional business, [such as] Goldman Sachs, you don’t worry. There’s not an existential threat out there.”” Noogratz, known for making bold predictions about the Bitcoin price, is having rough times right now with its company - Galaxy Digital. The company shares dropped 37% since August. Moreover, the Q1 2018 produced losses of $134 million for Galaxy Digital. Q2 though had better results - with $35 million in net income. On the other hand, Anthony Pompliano is feeling optimistic about Bitcoin’s future. Despite Bitcoin’s youth as a payment option - it’s beaten stocks, currencies, commodities and bonds in terms of performance. He even compared Bitcoin with MasterCard: “We have very deep conviction on a long-term basis. And if you look at the fundamentals, the 24-hour transaction volume on the Bitcoin network is about $4.6 billion as of lately, and the market cap is $74 billion. So that’s about a 16-times multiple of transaction volume for market cap. That’s very similar to Mastercard which does about $11 billion worth of transactions and is valued at about $180 billion. So from a value perspective, it’s right there on par with Mastercard.” As he states, don’t listen to the noise. Focus on the fundamentals. https://twitter.com/Xentagz/status/1065332934721368064/photo/1 Dr. Roubini Nouriel - one of the people that likes to criticize the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies - claimed that the Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) would bring the downfall to cryptocurrency space. Christine Lagarde talked about these last week, expressing interest in bringing the idea to life. Dr. Nouriel Roubini wrote for TheGuardian an article where he express the main points why CBDCs will take over: Central banks already have the technology - “a centralised permissioned private non-distributed ledger that allows for payments and transactions to be facilitated safely and seamlessly” If there would be a possibility for individuals,corporations and non-bank financial institutions to “make transactions through the central bank,”l CBDCs would be able to replace “the need for cash, traditional bank accounts, and even digital payment services;” CBDCs would “immediately displace cryptocurrencies” as they’re not “scalable, cheap, secure, or actually decentralized;” Authorities would “soon crack down on” privacy-focused cryptocurrencies that offer “complete privacy.” Bitcoin Cash ABC’s Mistake Bitcoin Cash ABC’s new rolling 10 block checkpoint system could put the network at risk. Even this was introduced to defend it against “deep” hostile reorganization, the risk is bigger now for consensus chain splits and offer attackers new opportunities, BitMex claimed. The update was made to introduce checkpoints - which will protect the network from bad actors tricking the network into mining fake versions of its blockchain. The results of this could lead to transactions being reversed or network interruptions. But this new update increase the risk of the network having a 51% attack. According to TheNextWeb, someone could control the network for as little as $27,000. As we all know, the hashwar between Roger Ver and Craig Wright ended by Roger ver’s Bitcoin Cash ABC winning the BCH ticker. Would Craig profit of this opportunity and attack the network as he repeatedly declared he will? More details about this can be found on BTCManager and Bitmex blog. Monero’s Lead Developer About BAT - They’re The Mafia Monero’s ”fluffypony” Ricardo Spagni recently took a shot at Basic Attention Token - claiming “They’re basically the mafia.”. It all started when Spagni discovered a “loophole” where the developers of BAT could ” steal funds from users” if they’re unclaimed tokens after 90 days. Moreover, they can also use ‘Sybil attack investigation’ and KYC/AML excuses to prevent you from claiming your coins for 90 days,”. Brendan Eich - The co-founder of Mozilla and the inventor of JavaScript programming language - explained that those were necessary to prevent bad actors from using the network for their own interest. A fraudulent user could accept grants from Brave’s User Growth Pool (UGP) and forward those to fake content creators. As for the ‘Mafia’ comment, Eich claims that clawback its available only for BAT tokens granted from the UGP that go unused. The user’s BAT cannot b

Report: Government Regulations Will Inhibit the Growth of Privacy Coins

Governments across the globe have in recent times changed their strategies to regulate the crypto-verse. They have moved away from completely banning cryptocurrencies to striving to eliminate privacy coins. Governments focus on protecting investors and ensuring that digital currencies do not become criminal hubs. To this end, governments have come up with policies such as KYC and AML which affect the operations of privacy-centred coins like Dash, Monero, Zcash, PIVX, and Verge among others. By intensifying their regulations, governments are preventing the growth of privacy coins significantly as the implemented measures would soon prevent exchanges from trading these coins for fiat currencies.

Government regulation and the future of privacy coins

In recent times, governments around the world have charted a new course for cryptocurrency regulation, and it’s one that seeks to exclude privacy coins. Moving away from the complete banning of digital currencies, these governments are tackling two core issues: protecting investors and traders, and making sure that cryptocurrencies avoid becoming breeding grounds for criminals. This trend has sparked many regulatory requirements, from anti-money laundering rules to KYCs. But as these governments intensify their regulations, we must ask ourselves what is the future of privacy-focused cryptocurrencies geared toward maintaining user privacy to the core? Anonymous Coins: Living Up to Their Names In its developmental stages, Bitcoin had earned a name as a cryptocurrency that provides complete anonymity to its users, drawing many privacy lovers to it. Today, that notion has changed completely. Though it might not be possible to trace transactions made on the Bitcoin blockchain to a specific identity, other details, including location and amount of transactions, are visible. And the fact that linking your identity to the blockchain will expose your transactions to the public ledger shows that, after all, the world’s largest and most popular cryptocurrency isn’t completely anonymous. In turn, privacy-focused coins have come to save the day. Beginning its journey in 2014 as Xcoin and later Darkcoin, Dash is one of the most popular privacy-focused coins in the cryptosphere. Its privacy feature PrivateSend, previously called Darksend relies on the CoinJoin mechanism of boxing-up transactions and making them difficult to identify participants of a particular transaction Another popular coin is Monero. Developed through the CryptoNight Proof of Work protocol, Monero has risen to be one of the best privacy coins in existence today. Transaction sources and destinations are untraceable in Monero. For example, to escape scrutiny from authorities, the WannaCry ransomware hackers reportedly converted their hoard to Monero. Additionally, after the closure of the darknet marketplace AlphaBay, authorities reported that they could not identify the amount of Monero on the platform, cementing the coin as a good place not just for privacy-oriented individuals, but as a hiding place for some criminals. Other privacy coins have sprung up and gained popularity as well, including Zcash, PIVX, Navcoin, Verge, among others. For proponents of the privacy coin, cryptocurrencies should be able to help privacy-oriented people conduct their financial transactions without prying eyes. Providing that infrastructure shouldn’t be a headache. But unfortunately for many, governments do not think so. Government Crackdown on Privacy Coins Though there has not been a comprehensive regulatory oversight on cryptocurrencies in general, many governments are devising ways of preventing criminals from using these digital currencies as their go-to financial system. These governments are also making sure that traders and investors in this space pay tax. But for privacy coins, the story is not that favorable even though many authorities haven’t turned their attention to the anon coin sector. In a written testimony in June this year, Deputy Assistant Director of Office of Investigations at the US Secret Service Robert Novy recommended that privacy-focused cryptocurrencies like Monero and Zcash should be regulated to prevent fraud. In May, Japan’s Financial Services Agency put pressure on anonymous cryptocurrencies, gingering crypto exchanges like Coincheck, a Japanese-based cryptocurrency exchange to announce its delisting of privacy coins, including the likes of Augur, Monero, Dash, and ZCash. The reason? Coins that grant a high level of anonymity might be used for money laundering activities according to the FSA. But can Privacy-Focused Coins be Stopped by Governments? Government regulation would surely hamper the growth of privacy coins, but not completely. One specific area that would be hard hit is the ability to exchange these coins for fiat or other cryptocurrencies. However, as the cryptocurrency space grows, privacy would be an integral part of this sector, and privacy coins might potentially rule that space. As Chief Marketing Officer for Dash Fernando Gutierrez puts it, There are many legitimate reasons to want privacy in the cryptocurrency space and there is the obvious consideration about privacy being a human right but then there is the huge issue of security. Having financial information public or semi-public is extremely dangerous. The only way to provide security for the average user is to allow them to keep some information private. When cryptocurrencies find their way into the mainstream and become a true internet money as many predict, privacy coins would be the order of the day for people who don’t want to have a public ledger of their everyday transactions. When the time comes, governments might have to comply themselves and find

GIN Platform Launches Cloud and Dedicated Nodes to Make Online Masternode Hosting Accessible

GIN Platform, the web-based platform developed to enable the average user to setup and deploy their own masternode system, to start earning passive income without the technical and hardware costs, has publicly unveiled its latest products designed to further streamline the platform. Launched on October 26th 2018, GIN Platform is now offering the Cloud Node and Dedicated Node hosting plans for users. The products are set to usher in new levels of accessibility with additional features to streamline and enhance the users ability to the deploy and manage the masternode systems. The products is also set to further promote and enhance blockchain security features through cheap and accessible, cloud-based masternode setup, bypassing the traditional barriers that have prevented many from setting up their own masternodes. The launching of Cloud and Dedicated Node plans for users is in alignment with GIN Platform’s objectives to give everyone the opportunity to earn, through the creation and management of masternodes on a cheap and affordable platform. What further defines the platform from its peers is that GIN Platform’s services are available to all regardless of technical skills. The platform currently accounts for almost 1.7% of all online masternodes. Cloud Node* Running a masternode in any cryptocurrency demands a certain amount of the blockchain’s currency to be locked up on the network. However, some masternodes generate small incentives for operators, making it unprofitable to run a dedicated service. Cloud Node makes its possible for masternodes with smaller rewards to gain support and secure their network by sharing resources with other masternodes on the same server and IP address. This helps to reduce the hardware and maintenance costs of lesser paying masternode. The fee for this service is pegged at $4.5 per month or $0.15 daily**. *This service is limited to certain cryptocurrencies. it is not available for DASH, PIVX, ZEN, and ANON. Dedicated Node Unlike the Cloud Node, this service gives each masternode its own dedicated server and resources to use. This Premium service goes for $12.6 monthly ($0.42 per day)** . **All prices exclude VAT. Payment and Discount Every user is able to choose the preferred option they wish to setup their masternodes under at any moment. This is possible through the Upgrade and Downgrade buttons on the user’s Dashboard. The Upgrade button elevates the status of the user’s account into a Dedicated Node, while the Downgrade takes it down to the Cloud Node. Users are able to toggle their masternode hosting services up or down, whenever they wish to do so. However, doing so will result in a new setup process, creating a new server for the user’s masternode and removing the old one. All services provided by GIN Platform are only payable on a daily basis with its native token GIN. Based on volume on commitment, users would be eligible for discounts starting in November.

Taiwan Prepares to Block Anonymous Cryptocurrency Transactions

Anonymous and privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies have always been a topic of controversy. Even though these currencies do not facilitate illegal activity by default, it seems the association with such activities is enough to make regulators nervous. In Taiwan, the government has decided to ban anonymous cryptocurrency transactions as part of the new Money laundering Control Act. Taiwan Makes an Interesting Decision As is always the case when a discussion regarding cryptocurrencies arises, the topic of anonymity is never far away. Most governments around the world are convinced Bitcoin is still an anonymous form of money, despite being far more transparent than the traditional banking ecosystem. The same applies to all other cryptocurrencies, which has many regulators concerned first and foremost. In Taiwan, a new amendment has been made to the Money laundering Control Act and the Terrorism Financing Prevent Act. This new change allows the local FSC the authority to crack down on anonymous virtual currency transactions. That in itself is pretty standard these days, as anonymous transactions are often linked to illegal behavior, either in online or offline fashion. The bigger question is what this means exactly for the future of anonymous cryptocurrencies in Taiwan. Monero, Dash, ZCash, PIVX, NulleX, and others may become non-grata in this country due to their default anonymous nature. Additionally, this particular trend would have different consequences for Bitcoin and other top cryptocurrencies down the line. Because of this new change, any bank across Taiwan can effectively reject anonymous transactions pertaining to virtual currencies. Such transfers will also be reported to the FSC if they are deemed suspicious. This will, by the look of things, to make it increasingly difficult for Taiwan residents to buy and sell cryptocurrencies in the future, which is not a positive development by any means. While it is evident this measure is designed to make Taiwan less susceptible to money laundering, the approach raises a lot of questions. It appears Taiwan has effectively followed the example set by Japan a few months ago, as that country forced exchanges to remove all anonymous cryptocurrencies from domestic trading platforms. A lot of other Asian countries may take a similar approach in this regard, depending on how the new rules in Taiwan pan out. Any development in this department raises many questions and objections. Targeting cryptocurrencies specifically makes sense when looking at the bigger picture of money laundering, primarily because this is a brand new form of money. At the same time, there are many misconceptions regarding the alleged anonymity of different cryptocurrencies. This new framework seems to blur the lines even further, which is not necessarily a good thing by any means.

3 Interesting Aspects of the Privacy-enabled Decentralized Exchange ZDEX

The competition among decentralized exchanges is heating up fairly quickly. That is a good thing, as traders and enthusiasts have shown a strong appreciation for this form of trading cryptocurrencies as of late. ZDEX is the first zero-knowledge proofs privacy-enabled decentralized exchange to come to market. Below are some other key aspects to note about this new venture. #3 The Release Roadmap Although there is plenty to be excited about when it comes to the ZDEX decentralized exchange, the project is not ready for prime time just yet. More specifically, the initial launch is an alpha version which will only allow for testnet trading. This should help iron out any lingering bugs or improvements which need to be made accordingly. It is expected a proper beta release involving main net trading to come to market two weeks after the alpha launch. This timeline is always subject to change primarily because no one can ever predict if any major bugs will show up when people least expect it. As such, it seems safe to assume ZDEX will launch before 2018 comes to a close, and the alpha version should go live on November 1st. #2 The PIVX Masternode Involvement In the world of decentralized exchanges, most platforms tend to run on the Ethereum network at this time. A few ventures exist in the EOS ecosystem as well, which is a pretty interesting development. However, there is now one decentralized exchange which runs on the PIVX masternode network. ZDEX is the first project to choose this option, although it remains to be seen if this is a smart decision in the end. By using PIVX’s masternode network, the decentralized exchange inherits some of the native technology In this case, it allows for privacy, an aspect that will be of great value to most decentralized exchange users moving forward. Additionally, it also benefits from zero-knowledge proofs, although it remains to be seen how this will affect the project exactly. #1 PIVX Masternodes vs ZDEX Masternodes In the world of cryptocurrency, masternodes are becoming increasingly important among privacy-oriented projects. In the case of PIVX, plenty of network masternodes exist already today. However, there is also an option to become zDEX nodes once the exchange goes live, which can be a pretty interesting option to explore. Users who set up such a node will receive a set percentage of all XDEX trading fees. Unlike what some people might expect, this will not replace the regular PIVX masternode rewards, as they can be accumulated at the same time. This creates a lot of potential revenue streams for PIVX supporters, especially because ZDEX will become an integral part of the ecosystem moving forward.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: Birthday Bitcoin Stays Over $6,000 for a Year

FOMO Moments Markets have found a new level for now; Dash, OmiseGO starting to recover, Revain dumping still. Crypto markets seem to have found another plateau for the time being. Yesterday’s big dump stopped just above $200 billion total capitalization and markets have remained at that level today. Bitcoin has found support above $6,300 for now and has stayed there for the past 24 hours remaining flat on the day. The bears are still dominating things so a further decline to $6,200 could be imminent. Ethereum has extended its losses and remains under $200 at $197 at the moment. Altcoins are currently mixed which suggests that they have found another level and no further losses have occurred. In the top ten only Monero has managed to claw back anything, and that is only 1.2% to just over $100. The biggest loser is Cardano again as ADA slips closer to dropping out of the top ten. The top twenty is also half green and half red but only marginally. Dash is currently making the best recovery with a 2.5% gain to $156. Still falling is VeChain with a further loss of 2.5% during the morning’s Asian trading session. Just outside this area of the chart at 21 is OmiseGO has also made nearly 4% back today. There are no double figure fomo pumps right now but topping the top one hundred’s best performing altcoins at the time of writing is Chainlink and Pundi X bit gaining 6-8 percent on the day. PIVX has also regained 5% and Loom Network is not far behind. Topping the red end of the top one hundred and the only altcoin with a double digit loss is Revain shedding 13% at the moment. Also getting beat up is Cryptonex, Dentacoin, Digitex Futures, and Revencoin all losing over 7% on the day. Total market capitalization has held the level it fell to yesterday which is $203 billion. Trade volume is a lowly $10 billion and this appears to be its new channel for now. We are still in the depths of 2018’s yearlong crypto winter. Bitcoin’s dominance has remained over 54% for its birthday and aside from a couple of quick dips has remained over $6,000 for a year which is remarkable. FOMO Moments is a section that takes a daily look at the top 20 altcoins during the current trading session and analyses the best performing ones, looking for trends and possible fundamentals.

PR: Blockchain Project Vulcano Announces Successful Relaunch

Bitcoin Press Release: With an entirely new code base, team, and a passion for the promotion and development of geothermal energy, Vulcano is breaking new ground in the blockchain world. October 19th, 2018, Singapore - Following its abandonment by the original developers, the Vulcano Project has been resurrected and is making fast inroads into business use case development. Rather than maintaining the original focus on being a “high staking coin”, the new team leading Vulcano has instead elected to focus on leveraging the power of blockchain technology to drive research in the earth sciences. In order to best modernize the Vulcano Core, the Vulcano team decided upon Bulwark as a code base. Bulwark is built upon PIVX, which itself is built upon the popular DASH cryptocurrency. This critical decision has given Vulcano the ability to implement masternode functionality, governance, and will eventually allow the integration of hardware nodes (currently under development) to support the Vulcano ecosystem. This new code base was released on August 22nd, a swap conducted via exchanges, and the newly reborn Vulcano is now ready for the future. Information on the newly launched blockchain can be found by looking at the Explorer and in the Whitepaper , which is currently available in seven languages. As a proud member of the Geothermal Resources Council, Vulcano is making a long-term commitment to global energy sustainability. Currently, Vulcano is working on partnering with academic institutions to fund research into geothermal and seismic projects. The Vulcano team believes in the world-changing potential of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology and, will demonstrate that there can be a productive future in using cryptocurrencies to drive scientific research. One central focus of the Vulcano Project is the community. The original Vulcano project was built on a strong community and has endeavored to retain and grow this community as the team led by Jason “BitBender” Brink has worked to reboot the project at a fundamental level. The community has been growing rapidly on Discord and on Telegram. Vulcano can currently be traded exclusively on Coinexchange.io and Crex24.com, and numerous resources on the website will assist users in deploying their own master nodes. Vulcano strives for innovation and growth without making promises that cannot be delivered upon - instead, the Vulcano Team will dedicate its efforts to research and advancing technological development. The Vulcano Team believes that it is time for cryptocurrency communities to begin acting in a way that is consistent with the business potential they bring to the table, and that wild claims about blockchain technology are not needed to build a business case for the use of existing technology. Developers, team leads, and the communities themselves must understand that in order to be accepted by the broader business and academic communities, cryptocurrency projects must be willing to abide by the best practices of business and management. This is a philosophy which the Vulcano Project espouses at its core.

Interesting Privacy Cryptocurrencies to Use in 2018

Privacy Cryptocurrencies are becoming quite popular given the emergence of user’s understanding of privacy to information, transactions, and data. A lot of cryptocurrencies claim to be anonymous and untraceable when in fact public records are left behind sharing previous transactions, along with balances of cryptocurrencies in the transactor’s wallet. Privacy Cryptocurrencies are a segment of cryptocurrencies which offer anonymity at a much higher level than other Cryptocurrencies. Zerocrypted lists 5 of the best Cryptocurrencies in 2018 which will help a user transact anonymously. Each of the 5 have distinct characteristics which help different type of transactions and users. Monero (XMR) Monero is the most known and stable privacy coin given its experience it holds since it was created way back in 2014. Monero’s anonymity is strong by ensuring it is entirely anonymous within the blockchain. It utilizes ring signatures to make it impossible to track transactions to a particular user as it employs a group of signers. Monero’s Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCT) uses cryptography to show input and output are equal so that the actual transaction figures are not revealed. The stealth addresses are unique for each transaction thus tracking the address is of no use as it is disposed of and created new for a new transaction by the same user. Monero has established to be used to purchase various goods and services. For example, Monero is used by CoinPayments which is a payment gateway for multiple cryptocurrencies. It allows Monero along with significant cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum to be used for online purchases of any products. Monero has also tied up with a lot of companies to create Project Coral Reef. This way, Monero proves its useful for merchandise shopping and breaking the myths that its only use-case its on the dark web. ZCash (ZEC) Zcash made a noise in 2016 with influential personalities in the cryptocurrency space backing the privacy coin. It utilizes the Zerocoin protocol and zero-knowledge proof cryptography called zero-knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge proofs (zk-SNARKs). Zcash’s technology zk-SNARKs allows users to encrypt data stored on the network. The only issue with this coin is the 20% miner’s tax that goes back to the Zcash team which the cryptocurrency community thinks is quite a hefty commission. Zcash’s technology is well appreciated, with the likes of financial powerhouses like JPMorgan (JPM) opting the use of the technology for Quorum. Quorum is a project by JPMorgan (JPM) that deals with an enterprise-ready distributed ledger, and smart contract platform. The creator of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin has praised zk-SNARKs technology and called Zcash cool. According to Buterin, Zcash can help Ethereum scale to 500 transactions per second from the present 15 transactions per second. Dash (DASH) Dash is one of the oldest privacy coins, dating back to 2014. It’s known for its speed of transaction and low cost. Dash follows the decentralized model quite extravagantly being an autonomous decentralized organization (DAO). The masternode users of Dash vote on how the DAO’s funds are used. A method called CoinJoin is used to make the transactions private as possible. This method joins transactions together making it impossible to trace the parties involved.Unlike Monero, Dash doesn’t have a cutting edge privacy. But what makes it special is the implementation of the hybrid PoW/ PoS operational and governance structure alongside with the team efforts to become the ‘Digital Cash’. The most interesting thing about DASH is the fact that it was the first cryptocurrency to use masternodes. From an investing point of view, masternodes earn 45% of the block reward for every block. The approximate ROI someone would get now by creating a masternode for DASH would be a 6.90% annually. Dash’s credibility has made it public for online betting with sites such as DashBets along with buying expensive products and jewelry from Huxworth. It has even broadened into purchasing precious metals through websites such as Goldmoney. PIVX (PIVX) PIVX stands for Private Instant Verified Transaction which is a privacy-focused digital currency that is open source. It was launched in 2016 and it uses a Proof of Stake consensus with high regard to its community. The added benefit of users earning passive income through holding and staking the coins has made it an interesting model for privacy coin lovers. No wonder it surged to 54,118.75% after rebranding efforts. The debate about fungibility is argued with PIVX being the first in the line of Zerocoin protocol making it genuinely fungible. Fungibility in cryptocurrency is the fact of a coin being able to be traced back to where it came from or no. Fungibility can be argued as an essential factor in the privacy debate for cryptocurrencies. With PIVX having many followers worldwide, the way it has been exposed for usage is uniq

The Rebirth of Blockchain Project Vulcano

Vulcano ($VULC), a Proof-of-Stake and Masternode-based cryptocurrency platform is back again following the abandonment by the original developers and is making its fast into business use case development. With a heavy focus on community, the new team leading Vulcano intend making the blockchain platform to become a robust community-based effort to advance scientific research rather than laying emphasizes on “high staking coin”. Vulcano is determined to use DLT and distributed consensus to help contribute to raising funds for the advancement of earth-science based technologies such as geothermal power. In order to meet up with the modern evolutionary trend in the crypto space, the former Volcano core, as deliberated by the volcano team will be upgraded to Bulwark as a code base. Bulwark is built upon PIVX, which itself is built upon the popular DASH network. This leap step adopted has given Vulcano the ability to use features such as masternode and proof of stake to support the Vulcano ecosystem. Earlier in August 2018, this new code was released, a swap conducted via exchanges, and the newly packaged platform is now available for use by its users. As a proud representative of the Geothermal Resources Council, Vulcano is making a long-term commitment to global energy sustainability. Presently, Vulcano is collaborating with academic institutions to fund research into geothermal and seismic projects. The Vulcano team believes in the world-changing potential of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology and, will demonstrate that there can be a productive future in using cryptocurrencies to drive scientific research. As earlier reiterated, One focal point of the Vulcano Project is the community. The original Vulcano platform was based on a solid network and has tried to hold and develop this network as the group driven by Jason “BitBender” Brink has attempted to reboot the undertaking at a critical level. The community has been developing quickly on Discord and Telegram. Vulcano can as of now be exchanged only on Coinexchange.io and Crex24.com, and various assets on the site will help clients in conveying their own master nodes. Vulcano takes a stab at advancement and development without making guarantees that can’t be fulfilled - rather, the Vulcano Team will devote its endeavors to inquire about and progressing innovative improvement. The Vulcano Team trusts that it is the ideal opportunity for digital currency networks to start acting in a way that is predictable with the business potential they convey to the table, and that wild cases about blockchain innovation are not expected to manufacture a business case for the utilization of existing innovation. Developers, team leads, and the communities themselves must comprehend that with the end goal to be acknowledged by the more extensive business and scholastic networks, crypto-linked ventures must begin to operate in accordance with regulation. This is a rationality which the Vulcano Project embraces at its center.

PIVX Price Drops by 11% Following Bithumb Listing

For most altcoins, getting listed on a prominent exchange will send prices upward. In the case of PIVX, the momentum looks surprisingly different, albeit it is unclear why that is the case. Despite getting listed on Bithumb, the price has plummeted by over 12%. A very peculiar trend worth keeping an eye on. PIVX Price Trend Makes Little Sense While it is true there is an overwhelming amount of bearish pressure across all cryptocurrency markets right now, it is evident some trends make less sense than others. In the case of PIVX, its current price is a lot lower than people had anticipated. This is not a positive way to head into the weekend, albeit it remains to be seen if any improvements can materialize in the coming few days. Over the past 24 hours, the PIVX price has lost over 12% in value. There is also an 11% decline in the PIVX/BTC ratio. It is not uncommon for altcoins to lose a bit of value when Bitcoin is struggling, although such hefty declines are not warranted at this time. Especially not given the recent major exchange listing of PIVX, even though it seems that has not done the altcoin any favors so far. To put this in perspective, the PIVX altcoin has been added to Bithumb. This is still one of South Korea’s biggest cryptocurrency exchanges. Newly added coins usually get a bit of a pump when trading goes live, yet it is not happening for PVIX at this stage. In fact, its ongoing decline today has only worsened ever since Bithumb trading went live, which is rather unusual. $PIVX trading has begun at 10/18 18:30 KST on Bithumb exchange! Here's a quick video starring @BryanDoreian of this exciting new addition. @BithumbOfficial @Bithumb_Korea #dyk #pivxpress #PIVXhttps://t.co/kubm6LLI1Q — PIVX (@_pivx) October 19, 2018 Some community members see this addition to Bithumb as a validation of how PIVX is a potentially valuable privacy-oriented currency. Claiming it is better than any other privacy coin on the market might be a bit of a stretch, although one can easily understand where this sentiment is coming from. PIVX certainly has its merits, but no currency is perfect by any means. FINALLY I can't believe people haven't noticed the improvements that #pivx made. It beats any other privacy coin out there !!! #privacy #cryptocurrency https://t.co/1R3Y9Ftrf9 — The Crypto Hog (@MehHog) October 18, 2018 It is quite interesting to note how this PIVX price downtrend occurred just a few hours after people got excited over its recent 7% spike. Trading momentum can turn around very quickly in the cryptocurrency world, and this particular altcoin is going through such a round at this stage. It is possible things will turn around, but so many currencies are down right now. Bucking the trend is pretty difficult given the current circumstances. State of the Top #Cryptocurrencies - last 24h 13% up average: 2.56% median : 1.59% volume : $2.71 b most: #PIVX $PIVX 7.44% 87% down average: -2.88% median : -2.55% volume : $7.88 b most: #RChain $RHOC -9.19% pic.twitter.com/XEGSall1q9 — Crypto Gulp (@CryptoGulp) October 18, 2018 With the weekend around the corner, it will become all the more difficult for altcoins to note any real gains. A listing on Bithumb can usually have a positive short-term effect on any altcoin, and PVIX might not even be an exception in this regard. At the same time, the overall crypto trading volume looks abysmal, and it seems no real improvements should be expected in this regard. A worrisome outlook, although cryptocurrencies remain unpredictable first and foremost. The post PIVX Price Drops by 11% Following Bithumb Listing appeared first on NullTX.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: More Sideways Inactivity, Altcoins Immobile

FOMO Moments Sideways trading for another day; Stellar and Neo slowly moving up, 0x dropping back. Crypto markets are slowly losing ground as gains made during last week’s Tether induced pump are slowly being eaten away. Market capitalization has retracted slightly from the same time yesterday but is still just above $210 billion at the moment. Bitcoin has dropped back a fraction of a percent today to bring it back to $6,550. The bulls do not have the strength to take it above the $6,600 resistance level so here it stays for another day. Ethereum is still very bearish with another drop today back to $205. For another day the altcoins are mixed pretty much half and half. The top ten sees Stellar making the largest move with 4% added to take XLM to $0.242. Cardano is up slightly but the rest have fallen back 1-2 percent on the day. Neo and Zcash are making the best momentum in the top twenty, both tokens trading over 4% higher today. Dash and Tezos however are both falling back 2-3 percent and the rest are pretty flat with little movement in either direction. As usual there are a couple of fomo pumps going on with some of the more obscure altcoins further down the list in the top one hundred. Ravencoin, a new entry to this part of the chart, is up 26%. PIVX and Odyssey are also climbing 14-15 percent at the time of writing. These spurts usually reverse within a day or two when the coin predictably dumps again. Losing ground today is Electroneum and 0x dropping over 7%. ZRX recently jumped over 40% on a Coinbase listing but has dumped a lot of those gains just as quickly as rumours of insider trading at the exchange circulate. There are no real standout cryptocurrencies at either end of the chart at the moment. Total market capitalization has shrunk around one percent on the day to just over $210 billion. Daily trade volume is still at $11 billion and the sideways channel has resumed. On the week markets are up 4.5% and over the past month they have made over 8%. Bitcoin dominance is currently 53.7% where it has been for most of the week. FOMO Moments is a section that takes a daily look at the top 20 altcoins during the current trading session and analyses the best performing ones, looking for trends and possible fundamentals.

How to Monetize Your Talents in Crypto

Although, many people have heard about how profitable the blockchain and crypto industry can be. One of such news spread like wildfire when bitcoin hit the peak price of $20,000 in 2017. However, only few people actually have more than a general knowledge about cryptos and how to make money through them. A lot of people don’t know that blockchain and crypto spheres go beyond just what they see and hear every day. This is the exact reason why you should start your earning through cryptocurrencies and blockchain. As usual, we have done the “digging” for you. So, here are 12 ways through which you can monetize your talents in Crypto and Blockchain spheres. Crypto-Trading Like exchanging currencies like or even precious stones and gold, cryptocurrencies can also be exchanged. However, exchanging cryptocurrency requires consistency because, although profitable, it can be very dangerous regardless of the stage you use to exchange. If you don’t want to trade by yourself, you can put your resources into exchanging firms which speculate on digital currency and are similar to stock-broking firms. An example of such firm is USI-Tech. They can help you make profitable exchange transactions. Although, you have to be very careful because there are many fake exchanging organizations, and you have to be careful not to buy into any of them. Affiliate Marketing and Cryptocurrencies Some companies will compensate you with cryptocurrencies for advancing their products and services. For example, Miners entryway can pay up to 0.75% to referrers and HashCoins pay 10% upwards of income gotten from clients you invite. Exchange your services for cryptocurrencies If you’re a writer, developer, designer, etc. you can start earning cryptocurrencies by exchanging your services for cryptocurrencies. Platforms such as XBTFreelancer, Coinality, bitWAGE, Coinworker can pay you Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero or Litecoin in exchange for your skills or talents. Some cryptocurrency communities will even give you bounties if you help them out as a contributor. Arbitrage Buy low and sell high. Different exchange companies have different prices. You can take advantage by buying cryptocurrency from an exchange company at a low price and sell it at a higher price to another exchange company. Trading with bots There are free and paid bots, but undeniably, you can do automated trading with these bots. However, you should check if the trading bot will be profitable to you and if its real before you invest your money on it. Staking You can earn crypto dividends for connecting to a blockchain network as a reward for securing and making the network more decentralized. It is basically a price appreciation reward for holding cryptocoins such as Neblio and NAV coin in a live wallet such as Neo, Pivx or OKCash. Blogging Many people out there are making money writing and blogging on sites such as Y’alls and Steemit. On these sites, you get paid based on the value of your content, that is, if your content is liked by readers or if you monetize your written content by restricting full access for readers. If you are talented in the IT sphere, and you want to help others know more about Bitcoins, blockchain and crypto, this is your best shot. Buy and Hold Cryptos You can buy cryptocurrencies and hold them for some time till they appreciate and obtain a fair market share against currencies like Dollars and Pounds. You can also buy and hold cryptocurrencies such as Neo, KuCoin and CEFS that pay you dividends even without staking. Microtasks You can do microtasks in exchange for cryptocurrency on sites like Bituro and Coinbucks. Most times, the tasks aren’t complicated and if you have some time, you can download new applications for testing, watch videos and do online surveys in exchange for cryptocurrencies. Mining Cryptos Mining is the process used to create coins by solving mathematical calculations on high-end computers or devices. It is actually the traditional method of earning cryptocurrency. This is another good way to monetize your talents in Crypto, however, you have to make some initial investment of buying mining equipment (ASIC or GPU-Mining equipment) and you need access to cheap electricity to run mining equipment and the technical knowledge for the hardware and software involved in mining. You may not want to go into mining yourself but you can sell your technical knowledge of mining and the management and maintenance of its hardware and equipment. You can also try disk-space mining. This type of mining is done using empty spaces of hard drives. Work at a cryptocurrency-related company If you have the right skills, many companies, organizations and even individuals will pay you for working on cryptocurrency-related projects. They can reward you with cryptocurrencies or regular fiat currency or bounties. Start your own cryptocurrency-related project A word of warning first, although, you can make money doing this, you should not jus
