    South America’s major e-commerce network is reportedly a partner on Facebook’s cryptocurrency project South American online marketplace Mercado Libre is working with Facebook on the social network’s Libra cryptocurrency project, Cointelegraph Brazil reports on June 14. A MercadoLibre executive told Cointelegraph Brazil that the purported cryptocurrency will be integrated into the e-commerce platform as a form of payment. While the anonymous executive confirmed the partnership, further details were not forthcoming. The executive stated that it was likely the company would operate as a node in Facebook’s purportedly forthcoming blockchain network. Mercado Libre is one of the most popular e-commerce platforms in South America with operations in 19 countries. According to a recent report, the testnet for Facebook’s Libra platform will be unveiled later this week. The ubiquitous social media platform has reportedly gathered support from dozens of firms including Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and Uber.   A recent report by The Block stated that a consortium has been formed to govern the project, including such organizations as venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz and Union Square Ventures, cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, and non-profit organizations including Mercy Corps. Recently, RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney and Zachary Schwartzman stated that Facebook’s Libra stablecoin would be one of the most significant events in the company’s history, saying that it would “unlock new engagement and revenue streams.”Read More

    Bitcoin is reportedly producing as much carbon emissions as Kansas City, while Facebook gets some new backers for its crypto project. Top Stories This WeekCCN casts doubt on shutdown plans as Google appears to correct visibilityCryptocurrency news outlet CCN (formerly CryptoCoinsNews) is apparently not going through with its total shutdown, as reported earlier this week. The outlet had previously posted a note that a recent Google Core Update had led to a more than 70% visibility drop on mobile overnight, leading the organization to decide to shut down rather than downsize. However, an update this week from CCN Markets Director Jonas Borchgrevink notes that, for an unexplained reason, the crypto outlet’s old domain name, CryptoCoinNews, has been showing up with new 2019 articles on Google, leading the team to decide to keep working. Theories about the visibility drop, which affected other news outlets, have ranged from it being a block of clickbait titles or a ban on conservative outlets by an allegedly “liberal” Google.U.S. residents will lose access to many altcoins on Binance starting in SeptemberUnited States residents who use major crypto exchange Binance will lose trading option access for many cryptocurrencies when the exchange puts into action its updated terms of service this September. As reported this week, Binance updated its terms of service to include trading on the platform for U.S. residents, a change that comes shortly after its announcement of a U.S.-exclusive fiat-to-crypto exchange. According to a table created by CryptoPotato, there are a number of cryptos that will no longer have a trading outlet in the U.S., as well as several tokens that will be listed on only one exchange after Binance closes for U.S. residents. However, veteran cryptocurrencies — including XRP, DASH, XLM, ETC and ZRX — will still be listed on four or more other U.S. exchanges.Sale of Telegram’s token “gram” on exchange Liquid is not official: SourceThe announcement this week from crypto exchange platform Liquid that it would be offering encrypted messenger Telegram’s token, gram, in a sale is not officially connected with Telegram, according to a source close to the messaging app. As Cointelegraph had reported earlier this week, Liquid had said that it would be the representative of gram tokens for Gram Asia, which it called the largest holder of the token in Asia. However, in comments to Cointelegraph, a source close to Telegram noted that it was the first time that it had heard of Gram Asia. In separate comments, an investor in Telegram’s token told Cointelegraph that no one has rights to sell the tokens before its official launch. Liquid CEO Mike Kayamori told Cointelegraph that the public sale is the result of an exclusive agreement between Liquid and Gram Asia, without the direct involvement of Telegram.Bitcoin generates more carbon emissions than some countries, study warnsAccording to a new report published in the journal Joule, the carbon emissions generated by bitcoin (BTC) are comparable to the whole of Kansas City.

    Cointelegraph spoke with Mark Karpeles, former CEO of defunct crypto exchange Mt. Gox. Disclaimer: The interview was edited and condensed for publicationMt. Gox crypto exchange is well remembered — but mostly for a bad reason. The year of 2011 marked the biggest heist in terms of the amount of crypto stolen, an eye-watering figure of 850,000 bitcoins (BTC), worth around $473 million at that time. Four years on and only 200,000 BTC of that were recovered.Most creditors still don’t know if or when they will ultimately get their funds back. Apparently, we may not see a conclusion any time soon, as Mt. Gox.’s trustee continues its standoff against the United States-based company CoinLab in court.Meanwhile, recent reports that Mark Karpeles is working for Japanese company Tristan Technologies as its chief technology officer have unsettled the community, with many believing that Karpeles is now back in the crypto game. To clarify these rumors and to find out the details regarding Mt. Gox settlements, Cointelegraph spoke with the man himself, Mark Karpeles.Media reports and rumorsAlex Cohen: First of all, let’s talk about recent reports that claimed you recently joined a brand new blockchain firm, Tristan Tech, as a CTO. You then took to the press to clarify that those reports were not accurate. Can you clarify all of this, please?Mark Karpeles: This is not particularly a new role; I have been doing this since 2016. Tristan Technologies is a very small company. We have probably, I think, four employees, with two engineers, including myself.So, it’s a very small entity and we’re working toward creating IT services — but nothing blockchain-related at this point, at least.There are different reasons for why I work here. One of the reasons was that, at the time, I didn’t really have a choice anyway, considering I was just out on bail. And as such, it was not easy to find a job.Also, I think Tristan Technology is a company that is very interesting on one specific point, which is that the director of the company is also my lawyer, who dealt with the criminal case in Japan..I have an opportunity to work on things that most IT companies cannot do, because either it’s too complex or it’s about things people don’t even know is possible.AC: So, just to clarify, do you have any plans to work in or with crypto, or do something blockchain-related right now?MK: Well, of course, there are probably things I can still do in crypto. But I don’t think it’s the right timing, right now. It will depend on how things evolve in the future.In the meantime, it is important to express and share what I have seen during my years at Mt. Gox and after that, and there is a book I’ve published in Japan that contains a lot of explanation – like what happened at Mt. Gox, what the status of cryptocurrency is, what has been done so far, and what needs to be done as soon as possible to make…Read More

    Can Facebook’s announcement regarding its crypto project next week provide a boost to other cryptos? The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph.com. Every investment and trading move involves risk, you should conduct your own research when making a decision.The market data is provided by the HitBTC exchange.The total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies had come scaringly close to breaking down below the $100 billion mark in mid-December of last year. At that time, sentiment was very weak and every rally was being sold on. There were talks of cryptocurrencies never seeing their lifetime highs again.However, fast forward seven months and total market capitalization is inching towards the $300 billion mark. Every dip is being bought aggressively and a few cryptocurrencies have already gone on to make new highs. The sentiment has changed within a short span of time.While the underlying fundamentals had been improving throughout 2018, a few notable events have helped to speed up the recovery of 2019. One among them is the launch of Facebook’s secretive cryptocurrency, Libra. The company is expected to announce the list of the Libra Association founding members and launch the testnet of its blockchain on June 18.Along with Facebook’s crypto project, the markets are also eagerly awaiting the launch of TON, the blockchain platform being developed by messaging app Telegram. With Bakkt having announced a date for bitcoin futures testing in June, hopes are high that the platform will also soon start operations. Unless these events fail to live up to expectations, a sharp fall is unlikely. Let’s look at the top five performers among the major cryptocurrencies in the past seven days.NEO/USDNeo (NEO) co-founder Da Hongfei had recently announced a new $100 million EcoBoost fund that aims to provide support to various projects at different stages of development to build the NEO ecosystem. The first phase of the project has kicked off wherein official partners will be recruited.The recent upgrade of its consensus algorithm on its mainnet is a key step in the development of NEO 3.0, which is expected to be released by the second quarter of next year. Can these developments prop prices higher? Let’s find out.The NEO/USD pair has not shown any fireworks in its rise from the bottom. After every small upwards move, it enters into consolidation before rising again. This looks like an accumulation by stronger hands. The price has sustained above 20-week EMA for the past three weeks and the RSI has rallied into the positive territory, which shows that bulls are in command.Currently, the pair is facing stiff resistance at the 50-week SMA, above which the rally can extend to $20. If this level is also crossed, a move to $25 is probable. The cryptocurrency will pick up momentum if it makes a large range move and follows it up with further gains. Traders can watch for such a move before hopping on to benefit from the positive momentum.Our bullish view will…Read More

    Crypto was a hot topic at a forum featuring Russia’s top people from the economic sector. Last week, an annual forum featuring Russia’s top people from the economic sector was held in St. Petersburg, and cryptocurrencies were a hot topic there. Notably, government agents and state-controlled businesses were vocal about their interest in blockchain, but seemed to distance themselves from digital tokens.Meanwhile, the regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies is still missing in the country, despite the fact that local authorities have been tasked to prepare the needed amendment a while ago. So, where is Russia heading in terms of crypto and blockchain?Brief introduction to Russia’s relationship with cryptocurrenciesRussia’s stance on cryptocurrencies has been mixed and fluid, as demonstrated by how the “CryptoRuble” — the national stablecoin project — has been unfolding. First, the prospect of  using a substitute for conventional money was deemed “illegal” by financial ombudsman Pavel Medvedev. Then, the Kremlin supposedly decided that a pet stablecoin could “minimize the amount of anonymous transactions,” or even help evade Western sanctions, thereby greenlighting the project. However, the CryptoRuble ended up on the back burner in the end, as the current status of the project is unclear. It was last mentioned in the news in January 2019, when a government official declared that it could go live “in a 2-3 years,” although the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) was acting “very conservatively” about the idea.Cryptocurrencies at large are in a similar situation. In October 2017, President Vladimir Putin claimed that cryptocurrencies “cause serious risk” and are used for crime, citing the CBR’s decision to block websites selling digital assets. Just a month prior to that, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov argued that the authorities had to accept the idea of the digital currencies market:“There is no sense in banning them, there is a need to regulate them.”There have been numerous attempts to define cryptocurrencies legally since then. At different times, Russian lawmakers have been urged to introduce a regulatory framework by President Putin (twice), the local Supreme Arbitration Court and the Financial Action Task Force.In May 2018, the crypto bill — titled “On Digital Financial Assets” (DFA) — was passed by the Russian parliament but was soon sent back to the first reading stage due to the lack of definitions for key concepts, such as crypto mining, cryptocurrencies and tokens.Last month, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev reportedly said that the popularity of cryptocurrencies “has decreased,” which is why the regulation issue “not that relevant” anymore. Notably, a year ago, he urged the government to legislate at least some basic crypto terms.The current deadline for the regulatory framework set by Putin expires in July.Recap of SPIEF, an annual Russian business event for the economic sectorBinance and Huobi reported an influx of traders, Vitalik Buterin talked about Ethereum 2.0Despite the prime minister’s suggestion that cryptocurrencies have decreased in popularity, they were widely discussed at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), an annual Russian business event for the economic sector, which took place from 6…Read More

    One of the oldest crypto sites shuts down, then comes back up immediately, citing loss of traffic. Here at Cointelegraph, we were as shocked as everyone else in and around the crypto-sphere when we learned about the abrupt closure of stalwart crypto media outlet CCN. Established at around the same time as Cointelegraph and CoinDesk, CCN spent years competing for the crypto audience.However, just a couple days later, as many others, we were relieved to hear that CCN was back — although we couldn’t help but feel sceptical regarding several aspects of the story and puzzled by so many questions swirling around it.How come a key player in our own industry could go down overnight — and then come back so conveniently after a few days? How could a three-letter-dot-com domain commanding millions of monthly visits be so hooked on Google-fed traffic that a single adjustment in the search algorithm, albeit a major one, cost it 90% of ad revenue momentarily?What was it, really? A targeted, politically motivated character assassination on behalf of the tech giant (as CCN’s founder claimed)? An unfortunate alignment of circumstances with no one in particular to blame? Possibly a PR stunt, or something else? We felt we owed it to the entire industry to take a sober look into this case to find out whether something similar could happen to any of us at any point in the future.What happened to CCN?CCN Markets, established in 2013 by the Norwegian entrepreneur Jonas Borchgrevink as CryptoCoinsNews.com, is currently part of the media company Hawkfish AS, which also operates Hacked, a publication that provides analysis on “future assets” like cryptocurrencies and tech stocks; MoneyMakers, a self-identified “tabloid that produces news with a special focus on money”; and HVY.com, a news platform that is designed to promote journalists rather than news stories. One of the largest global crypto-related news outlets, the majority of traffic to ccn.com comes from the U.S. As of early June 2019, the publication reportedly employed more than 60 full-time, part-time and freelance contributors.On June 10, CCN founder Jonas Borchgrevink addressed the readers with an extensive post, declaring that the website took a massive blow from Google’s June 2019 Core Update and saw mobile traffic from Google searches drop by 71% overnight, as measured by Sistrix’s Visibility Index (the same graph also showed a 53% decline in desktop traffic). This, Borchgrevink claimed, resulted in an immediate 90% decrease in ad revenue. He added that, although CCN had reached even lower visibility scores on a few occasions throughout the past year, the latest dip proved the most devastating because of the recent expansion of its team.Borchgrevink suspected a possible “general crypto crackdown by Google,” citing smaller but substantial losses on the same metric allegedly sustained by CNN’s competitors — i.e., CoinDesk and Cointelegraph. However, regarding Cointelegraph, the data Borchgrevink cites is inaccurate, based on conversations with Cointelegraph’s SEO team and public data that shows no reversal or even a slowdown around June 10. On the contrary, it reveals a steady…Read More

    Coinbase Custody announced that it holds $1.3 billion in assets under custody and the firm expects to hit $2 billion soon. Coinbase Custody revealed that it holds $1.3 billion in assets under custody (AUC) and the firm expects to hit $2 billion AUC soon in a Twitter thread published on June 13.In a series of tweets, what is evidently the official Coinbase Custody Twitter account reported that last week the company’s CEO, Sam McIngvale, and its chief information security officer, Philip Martin, visited the United Kingdom. The purpose of the visit was reportedly “to discuss the institutional cryptoeconomy with a range of prospects and clients.”During the meeting, the firm’s representatives argued that, while many believe that there are no institutional-grade offerings in the cryptocurrency space, Coinbase Custody is in fact such an offering. The firm’s representatives stated that the company is insured, regulated and secure custodian. The thread also specifies:“We have $1.3bn AUC and expect to hit $2bn soon. We have no intention of stopping there. […] Coinbase Custody services over 90 clients. Of those, approximately 40% are outside of the US.”Lastly, the tweet also claims that — as cryptocurrencies mature as an asset class — financial hubs such as London are becoming centers for crypto innovation.During an on-stage discussion at Consensus in mid-May, Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase, said that its custody service had already received $1 billion in assets under management.As Cointelegraph reported in March, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission is soliciting industry input as it potentially reconsiders existing custody rules in specific cases of digital asset trading and settlement.In April, Hong Kong trading and asset management firm BC Group announced that it is launching an insured custody service for cryptocurrencies.Read More

    Social media giant Facebook will reportedly unveil the Libra Association governing its cryptocurrency project on June 18. Social media giant Facebook will unveil the Libra Association, which will operate its bespoke cryptocurrency Libra, on June 18, cryptocurrency news outlet The Block reported on June 14.Per the report, Facebook and dozens of its partners will unveil the Libra Association — which will be based out of Geneva — as the entity that will oversee the company’s Libra cryptocurrency project. During the event, the company is also expected to launch the testnet of its blockchain.The Block claims to have seen an unspecified blog post from Facebook, according to which the Libra crypto asset will be hosted on the dedicated Libra Blockchain and backed by the Libra Reserve. The Libra Reserve is reportedly a store of real assets that should supposedly grant the token “stability, low inflation, global acceptance, and fungibility.”The Block further notes that the software underlying the network will be open-sourced under the Apache 2.0 license. The social media giant allegedly hopes that the system will help people without access to the financial system. Lastly, per the report, the company also declared that it intends to focus on regulatory compliance:“Collaborating and innovating with the financial sector, including regulators and experts across a variety of industries, is the only way to ensure a sustainable, secure, and trusted framework underpins this new system.”As Cointelegraph reported earlier this month, multiple sources were already expecting Facebook to launch its cryptocurrency on June 18.More recently, news broke that Facebook has allegedly sealed backing from over a dozen firms that include Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and Uber for its soon-to-be-unveiled cryptocurrency project. Each firm reportedly contributed $10 million to the project.Read More

    Korean banks push for blockchain adoption as former high-level officials join the space. In recent weeks, major South Korean financial institutions have rolled out a number of services incorporating blockchain technology, especially in the areas of Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures and security. Fintech has become a buzzword for local banks trying to keep up with the change of the times.The banks, however, are not looking into an important part of blockchain, which is digital assets, says one influential Korean advocate of alternative currency. In order to assess the Korean blockchain space, it is important to understand how the trend affects existing players and the cryptocurrency market.Blockchain as a ledgerShinhan Bank, the first bank to be established on the peninsula, incorporated blockchain into its lending services on May 27.The bank’s “Blockchain Verification System” allows users to receive evidential documents on private enterprises. Through this system, it has shortened the process from two to three days to almost instant verification.KB Kookmin Bank, one of the largest banks in the country, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with blockchain firm Atomrigs Lab, as Cointelegraph reported June 11. The partnership is designed to explore digital asset management and protection solutions.What differentiates Atomrigs Labs from other blockchain developers is that it specializes in the financial sector and is known to have the technology to retrieve private keys in case of loss.The latest move is part of KB Kookmin’s strategic blueprint to make the promotion of digital transformation a priority. Last year, the bank announced it will focus on technological improvements using the acronym “ABCDE” — standing for artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud, data and ecosystem.KB Kookmin has also signed an MoU with LG Corp., and is currently developing a joint product currently being called Magok Pay. The nickname comes from where the LG Science Park is located in Seoul.The payment system using LG CNS’ technology, the IT subsidiary of the umbrella company, is aimed at allowing users to pay with tokens on their smartphones without cash or a bank card.In turn, the retail lender will pay the amount and manage the transactions in fiat. It was ranked the world’s 60th-largest bank in 2017 based on Tier 1 Capital.Since April, NH Savings Bank started offering a peer-to-peer financial certificate service, which aims to prevent the tampering of records of receivable principal and interest. More recently, it has also opened a new training course to some of its workforce to groom them to be well-versed in digital ledger systems.The bank is an extension of the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation’s financial operations and serves some 20 million customers.  In an interview with Cointelegraph, Sung-jung Kim, the head of Asia for Cindicator — an analytics provider of traditional and digital assets using collective intelligence and machine learning models based in Seoul, St. Petersburg and New York — said the recent race to blockchain adoption by Korean retail banks can be categorized into either the institutions developing their own private blockchains or searching for hybrid options that are already available…Read More

    Blockchain company Dispatch Labs is incurring considerable losses despite extensive investment and a recovering cryptocurrency market. Blockchain company Dispatch Labs is incurring considerable losses despite extensive investment and a recovering cryptocurrency market, technology-focused news outlet Cryptobriefing reported on June 14.Initially, Dispatch Labs received funding from its executive team, subsequently raising over $13 million in a series of private rounds from other investors such as China-based capital firm Fenbushi Capital during the first half of 2018. However, the value of the raised capital slumped considerably following the market drop in the first quarter of the year.The company’s CEO Matt McGraw reportedly said that the team had indicated the threat driven by the market downturn, however the company did not have sufficient over the counter (OTC) availability at the moment to liquidate millions of dollars’ worth of digital currency.Dispatch Labs’ total remaining investment has dropped by more than half — from $13 million to around $6.5 million. Nevertheless, McGraw reportedly stated that the company has enough working capital to operate for the last of the year, especially taking into consideration that the market is purportedly beginning to recover.Dispatch Labs is not the first company to suffer in the aftermath of crypto winter.

Crypto enthusiasts living in the United States will have no trading options for a many cryptocurrencies when the major crypto exchange Binance becomes unavailable for them in September, according to a report by CryptoPotato on June 14.The report draws this conclusion based on the following table, which shows which cryptocurrencies will still available for U.S.-based traders after Binance discontinues its U.S. service:Former Binance options in the U.S. on other crypto exchanges. Source: Goomba’s TwitterThe foregoing exchanges listed are Coinbase, Bittrex, Poloniex, Kraken, HuobiUS, and eToro.The report also highlights that, in addition to the cryptocurrencies with no trading outlet in the U.S.—the all-white rows—there are also a number of tokens listed on only one exchange after Binance drops off, including ARK, BTT, IOTA, PIVX, and ZIL.These “endangered” exchange tokens, as well as the (temporarily) extinct tokens, will likely witness a large drop in volume, according to the report.However, veteran cryptocurrencies such as XRP, DASH, XLM, ETC, ZRX, and ZEN should survive Binance’s departure with little issue, since they are listed on four or more of the aforementioned exchanges.As recently reported by Cointelegraph, Binance updated its terms of use on June 14 to exclude trading on the platform in the U.S., which comes shortly after its announcement of a U.S.-exclusive fiat-to-crypto exchange.Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) remarked on the recent changes, implying that the restructuring will be useful in the long run:“Some short term pains may be necessary for long term gains. And we always work hard to turn every short term pain into a long term gain.”Read More

Social media platform Facebook has reportedly secured support from dozens of players in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector for its forthcoming digital currency. The overall roster was announced by technology-focused media outlet the Block on June 14.Earlier today, news broke that Facebook has allegedly sealed backing from over a dozen firms that include Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and Uber for its soon-to-be-unveiled cryptocurrency project, dubbed “Libra.” Together, these investors form the Libra Association.The materials cited by the Block indicate that the consortium formed to govern the project will also include investors such as venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz and Union Square Ventures, cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, and non-profit organizations including Mercy Corps. Among other members, the news outlet named stakeholders from various industries, including telecommunications, e-commerce, and media.The full list of the Libra association founding members, which Facebook is reportedly planning to announce next week:Source: The BlockA source familiar with the matter told the Block that the company is aiming to attract 100 members in the governing consortium. If all goes according to plan, Facebook will purportedly secure $1 billion from the 100 participants as it is reportedly charging each member $10 million to manage their own node.Earlier today it was announced that Facebook had hired Standard Chartered Bank’s head of public affairs Ed Bowles in anticipation of the greater regulatory scrutiny in Europe over its plans to launch its crypto asset and other financial services to its 2.4 billion users. Bowles will join the company in September, and is set to serve as the company’s London-based director of public policy.Today, global investment bank RBC Capital analysts Mark Mahaney and Zachary Schwartzman said that Facebook’s long-rumored stablecoin project “may prove to be one of the most important initiatives in the history of the company.”Read More

    New report reveals more details about one of the most anticipated projects in crypto, the TON blockchain. A new report on the Telegram Open Network (TON) by Russian research agency Aton — published today, June 14, on Cointelegraph — reveals new details about one of the most anticipated projects in the crypto space.TON is a blockchain platform developed by encrypted instant messaging service Telegram, which is widely regarded as one of the primary means of communication within the blockchain and crypto community.The blockchain network reportedly aims to gain wide usage due to the active, crypto-friendly Telegram community. According to the report, TON will facilitate internal payments, host decentralized applications (DApps) and provide wallet services, among other things.Telegram and its TON projectTelegram was developed by Pavel Durov, a Russian entrepreneur, and his brother Nikolai, a prominent computer scientist. The brothers earlier created VK.com, one of the largest social networks in Eastern Europe. Eventually, they fled their home country to become citizens of Saint Kitts and Nevis, an island country in the West Indies.TON famously saw one of the biggest — albeit private — initial coin offerings (ICO) in the crypto industry. In 2018, Telegram raised almost $1.7 billion in two private token sale rounds. It is second only to EOS’ record-breaking $4 billion ICO — however, it is worth noting that TON’s offering wasn’t extended to the public due to evident regulatory complications.  A report by the Financial Times citing unnamed sources suggested that several leading investors from Silicon Valley, including Sequoia Capital, Kleiner Perkins and Benchmark, were also interested in Telegram’s project. Allegedly, each of the firms was willing to put up $20 million towards the ICO at the start of 2018. However, other prominent investment firms that are associated with the fintech world, including Andreessen Horowitz, Bessemer Venture Partners and Union Square Ventures, have reportedly revealed no intention to participate in the venture.Also, According to rumors in Russian media, local billionaire and owner of Chelsea football club Roman Abramovich might have invested in the project. Meanwhile, only two native entrepreneurs — the co-founder of payment service Qiwi, Sergei Solonin, and the co-founder of dairy giant Wimm-Bill-Dann, David Yakobashvili — have publicly confirmed their backing so far.As per TON’s white paper, which was reportedly distributed among investors around January 2018, the platform will be much more scalable compared to Bitcoin and Ethereum, which will allow it to compete with giants Visa and Mastercard in terms of transaction speed.To achieve such levels of scalability, TON purportedly relies on built-in support for sharding, a process that allows the splitting and merging of blockchains automatically to streamline transactions under increased loads.Additionally, TON employs a technology called “instant hypercube routing,” as per the recent report, which also “aims to ensure that transactions are processed swiftly notwithstanding the size of the system.”According to the white paper, Telegram’s blockchain network is a proof-of-stake (PoS), multi-blockchain system consisting of a masterchain and up to 292 accompanying blockchains. Essentially, this means that TON relies on validators (“miners” who…Read More

    Twitter founder Jack Dorsey expounds on new crypto team designed to provide better internet infrastructure for payment company Square Disclaimer:  This article has been updated following revisions.Jack Dorsey, the founder of social media website Twitter and mobile payments provider Square, went into depth on his plans for his new team dedicated to improving the crypto sector at Square in an interview with The Next Web on June 14.According to Dorsey, this initiative, Square Crypto, will add to the fiat payment company’s operations by providing an infrastructure for frictionless internet payments. Right now, he says that regulations and partnerships slow Square down — obstacles that he hopes to avoid in the future with an improved crypto infrastructure:“Just from a business perspective, we don’t look like an Internet company today. An Internet company can launch something and it’s available around the world. Whereas with payments, you have to go to each market and pay attention to regulators. You need a partnership with a local bank. This is a very slow process in any new market.”The team’s efforts to provide solutions for the crypto space will reportedly all be made open source. Dorsey says that security and currency efficiency are areas he hopes to tackle with the team, as well as potentially less prominent issues like code reviews, which Dorsey cites as a major issue for bitcoin (BTC).The planned team will reportedly be a small group, comprised of a handful of crypto-literate software engineers and a single designer. Dorsey plans to work directly with the team. The first announced dev hire for the team was Steve Lee, a former director at Google.Dorsey also touched on the role of including a designer, saying that better design could make the crypto space more accessible to the layperson:“This designer will be tasked with doing educational tasks […] These will include making it easier for ordinary people to conceptualize using digital currencies like Bitcoin as an everyday tool for payment.”As previously reported by Cointelegraph, Square recently saw a revenue high in BTC through its payment app Cash, an option made available to users in February 2018. According to its first quarter report for 2019, the company has made a net profit of about $830,000 through BTC in the quarter, with a total BTC revenue of $65.5 million.Read More

    Cryptocurrencies data and indices provider CryptoCompare’s new research shows which cryptocurrency exchanges perform best. Cryptocurrencies data and indices provider CryptoCompare’s new research has assessed and ranked performance among cryptocurrency exchanges as of June 2019.To prepare the ranking of cryptocurrency exchanges, CryptoCompare analyzed data collected between May 1 and May 30 of the current year, considering a series of key components such as geography, legal and regulatory assessment, investment, company quality, data provision and market quality, and trade surveillance.Top performers are reportedly located in the United States, South Korea, and Japan, while Malta is underperforming in its resident digital currency exchanges. CryptoCompare states in the report that those trading platforms that reside in jurisdictions with stricter regulations tend to perform better.Out of the ten leading cryptocurrency exchanges in terms of the aforementioned metrics, Coinbase leads the list and is followed by Poloniex and Bitstamp. Binance, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange in terms of adjusted trading volume, is ranked 8th. Binance plans to halt U.S. operations in September, as Cointelegraph previously reported.The report further notes that low risk investor’s markets – with the grading dubbed “AA” – only include 3% of all reported volumes. All AA rated exchanges are registered as money service business (MSB) and licensed as money services company, exchange operator or similar. According to the research, only six crypto exchanges got an “AA” grade, which are Coinbase, Poloniex, Bitstamp, BitFlyer, Liquid, and itBit.”Only 5.6% of total trading volume happens on licensed exchanges, and 7% of volume on exchanges registered as MSB.”Earlier this week, CryptoCompare launched an Exchange Benchmark product that ranks over 100 crypto spot exchanges worldwide in response to growing industry concern sparked by research indicating that a significant number of crypto exchanges globally have been using wash trading and other strategies — including spoofing and incentivized trading schemes — to artificially inflate trade volumes.Read More

    The Financial Supervisory Authority of Iceland approved a ConsenSys-backed blockchain firm to operate as e-money business. The Financial Supervisory Authority (FME), Iceland’s sole financial regulator, has approved the first blockchain-powered e-money firm in the country, as the organization announced on June 14.Reykjavik-based Monerium, backed by blockchain software company ConsenSys, has reportedly been approved by the Icelandic financial watchdog to provide fiat payment services using ethereum (ETH) blockchain, crypto media outlet CoinDesk reported June 14.According to the report, Monerium has become the first company to operate under an electronic money framework, a major European regulatory framework that enabled the firm to offer blockchain-powered e-money services across the European Economic Area (EEA).Monerium co-founder Jón Helgi Egilsson, a former chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Central Bank of Iceland, will reportedly announce the news at a digital currency conference in Stockholm on June 15.According to CoinDesk, Monerium is planning to launch a blockchain-based fiat currency pegged to Icelandic krona (ISK) to enable cross-border payments in the currency without a financial middleman. The digital ISK will be reportedly operable across the European Union on the initial stage, while the firm also plans to introduce the e-currency to more countries depending on their regulatory policies in the sphere.In January 2019, ConsenSys participated in a $2 million seed funding round for Monerium, with the company’s co-founder Andrew Keys claiming that investment in the Icelandic firm aligns with the incubator’s purpose to create “the infrastructure needed for a more decentralized and self-sovereign future.”Recently, Cointelegraph published an interview with ConsenSys co-founder Joseph Lubin, who declared that the ethereum blockchain had scaled significantly to date.Read More

    Can Facebook’s stablecoin and the Bakkt launch drive the next leg of the uptrend? The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph. Every investment and trading move involves risk, you should conduct your own research when making a decision.Market data is provided by the HitBTC exchange.The eagerly awaited cryptocurrency platform Bakkt will begin testing Bitcoin futures on July 22. Its launch is closely watched because it is expected to attract institutional investors who can drive the next leg of the uptrend. The recent recovery in cryptocurrencies has already led to increased interest in Bitcoin futures trading that resulted in record high open positions.Another project that has generated huge interest is Facebook’s stablecoin dubbed “Libra.” The social media giant has been making some high profile hirings for the project, the latest being Standard Chartered Bank’s head of public affairs Ed Bowles. It has also managed to attract investment from various known firms such as Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and Uber that have invested around $10 million each for the project.A report by Grayscale shows that Bitcoin was the best performer between May 5 and 31. It rallied 47% while most other asset classes were reeling under the uncertainty of the US–China trade war. The second-best performing asset was the Japanese yen, which was way behind at 2.1%. This shows the uncorrelated nature of Bitcoin and how it can be an important addition to any portfolio.BTC/USDBitcoin (BTC) has been sustaining above the 20-day EMA for the past two days, which is a positive sign. The bulls will now try to carry it to the recent highs of $9,053.12. A breakout of this resistance will propel the cryptocurrency to $10,000. The 20-day EMA has started to turn up once again and the RSI is inching higher into positive territory. This suggests that bulls have an advantage in the short term.However, if the BTC/USD pair turns down well before breaking out of $9,053.12, it will be in danger of forming the right shoulder of the developing head and shoulders (H&S) pattern. This bearish setup will complete only if the pair plunges below the neckline. Until then, we will not preempt a fall.On a breakdown of the neckline, the cryptocurrency can drop to $7,413.46, which is a critical support. The 50-day SMA is also located close to this point, hence, we anticipate a strong defense of this level by the bulls, but if this support cracks, the fall can extend to $5,900.ETH/USDEthereum (ETH) is range bound between $225.39 and $280. As the price is sustaining above the 20-day EMA, the bulls will attempt to push the price towards the top of the range at $280. A breakout of the range will start a new uptrend that can result in a move to $322.06 and above it to $335.On the other hand, if the ETH/USD pair turns down from $280, it can again drop to the 20-day EMA. If this level breaks down, the…Read More

    Austrian steel trading company Alukönigstahl is working on a blockchain-based steel trading data system. Austrian steel trading company Alukönigstahl is working on a blockchain-based steel trading data system, local media outlet industriemagazin.at reported on June 13.Alukönigstahl CEO Stefan Grüll is working on the business model of a blockchain-based steel trading database dubbed “STEEL but SMART,” which targets traditional use cases. Within the framework of the project, Grüll reportedly founded a separate company called S1Seven GmbH that undertakes all blockchain-related activities.Specifically, the system is set to provide stakeholders with clear data on steel products’ origin, account and industry standards, as well as information about product properties, processing, and deployment. As a result, the company intends to create a single source of complete documentation of the production history. Grüll said:“Individual testimonials that are subject to statutory retention requirements and contain information on test and test results are linkable.”However, Grüll noted that before launching the product, it is vital to form a consortium of stakeholders, steel manufacturers, plant builders, steel mills, and steel test equipment manufacturers in order to use a single “data structure based on certain standards.” The blockchain-powered platform is expected to be rolled out at the end of the current year, with selected industry participants.Blockchain technology has been gradually entering the supply chain sector, with many other stakeholders around the world having already integrated it into their internal processes. Earlier this week, precious metals streaming company Wheaton Precious Metals revealed that it will use blockchain to facilitate its metal accounting processes.In late May, Swiss luxury watch and clock manufacturer Vacheron Constantin announced that it will start using blockchain technology to track its timepieces. Vacheron Constantin reportedly said that blockchain will help fight counterfeiters and guarantee authenticity of its watches, as well as protect potential customers from purchasing fakes.Read More

    The United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority warned investors of two fraudulent clones of financial firms. The British Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has warned investors of a fraudulent company posing as the Swiss Investment Corporation, an FCA-authorized firm offering crypto investments, and another company that is a clone of Goldman Sachs, the regulator announced on June 14.The financial regulator has blacklisted a firm operating under the domain swissinvest.biz. According to the announcement, the fraudulent clone firm offers services on its website swiss-investissement.com and is involved in scam activity.On the website, the alleged clone firm divides its proposed investments into the safest —  assets such as precious metals, and the most successful — major cryptocurrencies including bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH) and ripple (XRP).The FCA released another warning against Goldman Sachs Asset Management International, a clone of major global investment bank Goldman Sachs. The popular investment bank has recently denied its plans to launch a crypto trading desk, claiming that multiple media reports suggesting otherwise were incorrect.In both cases, the FCA has expressed the particular danger of cold calls from companies pretending to be legitimate financial institutions.Earlier in May 2019, the FCA warned investors against another clone firm posing as ICAP Europe Ltd.Also in May, the British regulator reported that local crypto investors lost more than $34 million due to cryptocurrency and foreign exchange (forex)-related scams over 2018 and 2019.Read More

    Mike Kayamori of Liquid told Cointelegraph how it came to agree with Gram Asia on their exclusive deal for the coming Gram public sale. It was a “natural” development. That is how Mike Kayamori, the CEO of Liquid described an exclusive deal with Gram Asia on public sales of Telegram Open Network (TON), a decentralized network being developed by privacy-focused messaging platform Telegram. Kayamori told Cointelegraph how Liquid came to agree with Gram Asia. He also claimed that Liquid was the pioneer of initial exchange offering (IEO) and explained which advantages Liquid has in the IEO market.“Everything is between Gram Asia and Liquid”The upcoming IEO at Liquid is a public sale of gram, which is the native token of TON. The Liquid deal was not made with Telegram, but with Gram Asia, the largest Gram holder in Asia. Kayamori confirmed this by saying that “everything is between Gram Asia and Liquid.”He explained the process of reaching the agreement as follows:“It was natural. We knew the Gram Asia people. We also believed in Telegram Open Network and its community. […] A limited scope compared with $1.7 billion. But let’s do a proper public sale so that Telegram users and greater community can participate in before the actual listing that will happen in October.”Telegram conducted a private token sale to accredited investors last March, reportedly raising a total of $1.7 billion. The company released a testnet version of TON last month and is planning to launch the mainnet in October.As to the timing of the public sale, Kayamori explained that Gram Asia made “conscious efforts  to try to expand that ecosystem prior to having it listed.” He also added, “I think they wanted to wait until the testnet happens.”Kayamori acknowledged that some people are questioning why they are selling it now. He said that “there is a lot of conspiracy theories.” Liquid will be announcing a statement to clarify some misunderstandings by media reports as to the gram public sale shortly.He also suggested Gram Asia’s role as an incubator that works on the TON project and how it is part of the robust community of TON ecosystem.The public sale is scheduled for July 10. As to the price or the amount of tokens for sale, Kayamori said it would be released about a week before the sale.The sale will be available everywhere except for over 50 countries, including the United States and Japan. But Kayamori sees a high potential in the powerful combination of the TON network and Telegram’s 200 million active users:“If you are a distributed app vendor,  would you want to be listed on top of Ethereum? or EOS? Or do you want to be built on top of TON? Ethereum is great. It is a gold standard of ICO. EOS is decentralized and good but who has 200 million active users already? […] The TON network app vendors building their applications on it, when it integrates into Telegram, that is going to be special.”Related reading: Exclusive: New Report Reveals Details of Telegram’s…Read More

    Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex announces a burn initiative for its utility token LEO. Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex announced a LEO burn initiative in a Medium post published on June 14.Per the announcement, the initiative will see the exchange’s parent company iFinex funnel its gross revenue into purchasing LEO tokens at market prices in what the post refers to as the UNUS SED LEO burn mechanism. This new system will launch alongside the LEO Transparency Dashboard, which will reportedly provide real-time insights into all collected platform fees and LEO token burns. The company explains its reasoning:“We are doing this to remove the possibility of uncertainty from LEO holders, subsequently allowing our community to track iFinex revenues, as well as LEO token burn quantities, in an open manner.”At first, the system will only involve revenue from trading fees, but the company promises to expand it to all other revenue streams, including deposit and withdrawal fees, funding fees and other services. The post further notes that the initiative will include entities such as EOSfinex, and that the tokens will be bought “at market rates and on an hourly basis, equal to a minimum of 27% of consolidated revenues of iFinex.”The burn mechanism is set to stop only when there are no more tokens in circulation. The LEO tokens that are used to pay trading fees on the exchange will also reportedly be burned, and at least 80% of the funds recovered from the Bitfinex hack will also be used to buy and burn them.As Cointelegraph reported at the time, Bitfinex unveiled its exchange utility token UNUS SED LEO on May 17.Earlier in May, Bitfinex and the affiliated stablecoin Tether were subject to legal investigation in New York state for misrepresenting their reserves.Read More

    Global investment bank RBC Capital Markets expects Facebook to release white paper for its crypto project on June 18. Global investment bank RBC Capital Markets believes that Facebook’s upcoming crypto project will be a major milestone in the firm’s history, CNBC reports June 14. In a note to investors, RBC Capital analysts Mark Mahaney and Zachary Schwartzman reportedly said that Facebook’s long-rumored stablecoin project “may prove to be one of the most important initiatives in the history of the company.” A part of the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), RBC Capital predicted that the social media giant’s cryptocurrency project will “unlock new engagement and revenue streams.” According to the report, RBC Capital expects the project’s white paper to be released on June 18, joining other sources that expressed similar expectations earlier this month. In the note to investors, the investment bank promised to provide an analysis of the paper as soon as it is released in order to “help investors analyze the underlying cryptoeconomics of the token.” To date, RBC Capital has predicted that Facebook will use its crypto initiative to facilitate three spheres of its business: applications and gaming, payments, and commerce. Earlier this month, CNBC reported that Facebook will allow its employees to receive part of their salary in its internal cryptocurrency. Meanwhile, RBC Capital also has an outperform rating on Facebook, with a price target of $250 per share. At press time, Facebook’s share rose around 1.8% to trade at $180.4, up more than 35% over the past year, according to CNBC. First reported by Bloomberg in late 2018, Facebook’s upcoming stablecoin has been a major issue discussed in crypto community and has seen increased coverage by crypto media outlets so far. Earlier today, the Financial Times reported that Facebook hired Standard Chartered Bank’s head of public affairs Ed Bowles for its cryptocurrency project. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal published an article revealing that Facebook’s crypto project was supported by over a dozen companies including Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and Uber.Read More

    Spanish law enforcement arrested 35 people for allegedly counterfeiting banking cards and laundering the proceeds through bitcoin. Spanish law enforcement arrested 35 people for allegedly counterfeiting banking cards and laundering the proceeds through bitcoin (BTC), local media La Verdad reports on June 14. Per the report, the organization obtained over €600,000 ($674,000) and laundered over €1 million ($1.2 million) using bitcoin. Furthermore, the Command of Alicante reportedly solved a total of 1,020 connected cybercrimes during the operation. The alleged actions of the suspects — who are from Equatorial Guinea, Spain, Nigeria, Cameroon and Morocco — had a total of 219 victims in Spain, with 20 more in Israel, Denmark, Germany, France and Greece. According to La Verdad, law enforcement noticed the unauthorized use of 104 banking cards in Spain and 12 other countries. The investigations were then spurred by a complaint filed by a car rental company that detected unauthorized use of their banking cards on online services. The group allegedly operated in three different ways: phishing via email (pretending to be a trustworthy individual and asking for banking credentials), cloning the physical cards, or obtaining credentials from credit card receipts in what is often referred to as credit card bin attack fraud. The group reportedly paid for hotels, flights, train tickets and rental vehicles with the cards obtained this way, ordering them for its customers for much lower prices. Companies under the group’s control located in Estonia, the United Kingdom and Finland bought bitcoin with the profits. As Cointelegraph reported at the time, eight people were arrested in Spain for allegedly operating a money laundering scheme involving cryptocurrencies in March. As Cointelegraph explained in a recently published analysis, law enforcement groups are also taking action against cryptocurrency anonymization services known as cryptocurrency mixers, or tumblers.Read More

FortuneJack Casino Review

When FortuneJack first opened its digital doors in 2014, they became the first Bitcoin casino to offer other cryptocurrencies as transaction options. Alongside the promise of more altcoins being added on an ongoing basis, this online casino now provides seven major altcoins (Bitcoin Cash Litecoin, Etherium, Dogecoin, Monero, Dash, Zcash, with more new cryptos planned) transaction options, making them one of the most accessible casinos within the cryptocurrency betting niche.

But their continued evolution reached new heights with a relaunch, an all-new FortuneJack experience offering gaming and promotion additions that serve to complement the large number of reasons they have such a loyal community of players. Here’s all the reasons this Provably Fair (detailed in the “Customer Service” section) online casino is more than worth your consideration.

Registering at FortuneJack

As the leading Bitcoin casino, FortuneJack has an intimate understanding of the importance of online privacy and anonymity. That’s why, when you register, the company does not collect or store user data, and the only information that needs to be provided during registration is a username and password, email, and phone number, the latter is only required to claim no deposit bonus. All told, the whole process takes less than two minutes. They also offer a no-deposit bonus for newly registered players, a good opportunity to try their extensive selection of games before depositing your own cryptocurrency.

Deposits and Withdrawals at FortuneJack Casino

The 10-minute withdrawal and deposit times are some of the fastest in the industry, and with over 90% of all transactions being performed in under that time, you’ll have your money where you want it almost instantly. While slight delays may occur, the team at FortuneJack usually gets it pushed through and squared away within a couple of hours at the most. But rest assured that it’s rare when deposits and withdrawals, both of which are performed using state-of-the-art security and encryption, go through immediately, whether they’re your winnings or a deposit.

Game Variety at FortuneJack

FortuneJack is the leading Bitcoin casino for a good reason. They’re the first community-specific Dice game, and they have the most gaming categories offered at a cryptocurrency casino. In fact, you can find over 2,500 games in their lobby from several different software providers, including iSOFTBET, XProGaming, TomHorn, Endorphina, Evolution Gaming, Microgaming, and upcoming Netent, PlaynGo, Scientific Gaming, WMS, Bally, NYX. From table and card games to Slots and Video Poker, there’s indeed something for everyone, and they come in a wide range of styles. You can also find several Live Casino rooms for live-streamed, in-person action. And while you may see some of what they offer elsewhere, FortuneJack has several signature in-house games, from Dice with its famously low house edge to BlackJack, Fortune Wheel, Keno, Bingo, and Fortune Slot, all exclusive to their lobby. With seven different gaming categories (and the Sportsbook and multiplayer Poker set to be released soon), the number of high-quality games ensures that no player will be able to find a more diverse selection from a different cryptocurrency casino. Further, the FortuneJack team made this promise to themselves and every player in their community: every month, they’ll be adding at least one new provider and game. This guarantees that there will always be something new to discover.

Promotions at FortuneJack Casino

FortuneJack has not shied away from being public about their mission for offering the best promotions in the online casino world. You won’t find typical promotions in general, and we’ll get into that in a moment, but they also say that they will match the terms of any online casino in the Bitcoin/crypto industry with a better bonus. You’ll be hard-pressed to find it, but if you do, they’ll give you the same deal, or a better one. But beyond that, FortuneJack offers a large, deposit-matching 5 BTC Welcome Bonus with 250 Free Spins and a no-deposit bonus just for registering. Every day of the week, they have a different promotion, like an even lower house edge on Dice every Wednesday, and 10% cashback on losses all day on Friday when you play Roulette. As you place bets, you’ll also reap the benefits of Jack’s Circle, a loyalty program that has players earning Comp Points, lower rollover requirements, exclusive bonuses, and even physical gifts for the most loyal players. You’ll also find weekly, monthly, and seasonal promotions offered all the time, giving you something to look forward to in your inbox — like free money to play your favorite games. Jack is an in-house character that serves the community, notifying, congratulating, and informing with the spirit of a true gambling connoisseur, an immersive addition to the FJ experience that ups the fun and helps to clarify.

Customer Service at FortuneJack

FortuneJack has a 24/7 live chat support, with consistently minimal wait times and a positive online reputation for their knowledgeability and friendliness. But one of the unique customer service aspects is the Provably Fair system. No more do bettors need to rely on third-party auditors to know the games they’re playing are genuinely fair and random, as they can see firsthand using the revolutionary, decentralized technology to check the fairness of every roll, spin, or deal. With the Provably Fair system, you can get the encrypted server seed before you bet, ensuring that the casino cannot change it afterward. You can set your own client seed to ensure the casino didn’t generate one that would make you lose; then you can check to make sure it all matches up once the server seed comes back unencrypted. Even if you don’t use the Provably Fair system, it’s good to know that FortuneJack’s transparency extends to every player, allowing them to personally check the integrity of every game offering.

FortuneJack Casino Verdict

With over 2,500 games from a variety of software providers within most of the gaming categories in existence, you (at the very least) know that you’ll never be bored. Further, with FortuneJack’s Provably Fair system and their dedication to security, privacy, anonymity, and transparency, this is the gambling experience hand-tailored to the cryptocurrency player. The promotions are highly lucrative and excitingly eclectic, and the instantaneousness of the withdraw and deposit times offers a streamlined experience that can get you placing bets, or spending your money elsewhere, with intuitive ease. (With under 10-minute withdrawals that emphasize privacy and security, “intuitive ease” might just be an understatement.) The verdict? FortuneJack stands out, and with their continued push to stay the leading Bitcoin casino, we can only predict that they’ll just keep getting better.

History of bitcoin casinos

best bitcoin casino usa
Number of bitcoin transactions per month (logarithmic scale)

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to control its creation and management, rather than relying on central authorities.[1] The presumed pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto integrated many existing ideas from the cypherpunk community when creating bitcoin. Over the course of bitcoin’s history, it has undergone rapid growth to become a significant currency both on and offline – from the mid 2010s onward, some businesses on a global scale began accepting bitcoins in addition to fiat currencies.[2]

Pre-history

Prior to the release of bitcoin there were a number of digital cash technologies starting with the issuer based ecash protocols of David Chaum[3] and Stefan Brands. Adam Back developed hashcash, a proof-of-work scheme for spam control. The first proposals for distributed digital scarcity based cryptocurrencies were Wei Dai’s b-money[4] and Nick Szabo’s bit gold.[5][6] Hal Finney developed reusable proof of work (RPOW) using hashcash as its proof of work algorithm.[7]

In the bit gold proposal which proposed a collectible market based mechanism for inflation control, Nick Szabo also investigated some additional enabling aspects including a Byzantine fault-tolerant asset registry to store and transfer the chained proof-of-work solutions.[6]

There has been much speculation as to the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto with suspects including Dai, Szabo, and Finney – and accompanying denials.[8][9] The possibility that Satoshi Nakamoto was a computer collective in the European financial sector has also been discussed.[10]

Creation of Bitcoin casino bonus

On 18 August 2008, the domain name bitcoin.org was registered.[11] Later that year on 31 October, a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System[12] was posted to a cryptography mailing list.[11] This paper detailed methods of using a peer-to-peer network to generate what was described as “a system for electronic transactions without relying on trust”.[13][14][15] On 3 January 2009, the bitcoin network came into existence with Satoshi Nakamoto mining the genesis block of bitcoin (block number 0), which had a reward of 50 bitcoins.[13][16] Embedded in the coinbase of this block was the text:

The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.[17]

This note has been interpreted as both a timestamp of the genesis date and a derisive comment on the instability caused by fractional-reserve banking.[18]:18

The first open source bitcoin client was released on 9 January 2009.[19][20]

One of the first supporters, adopters, contributor to bitcoin and receiver of the first bitcoin transaction was programmer Hal Finney. Finney downloaded the bitcoin software the day it was released, and received 10 bitcoins from Nakamoto in the world’s first bitcoin transaction on 12 January 2009.[21][22] Other early supporters were Wei Dai, creator of bitcoin predecessor b-money, and Nick Szabo, creator of bitcoin predecessor bit gold.[13]

In the early days, Nakamoto is estimated to have mined 1 million bitcoins.[23] Before disappearing from any involvement in bitcoin, Nakamoto in a sense handed over the reins to developer Gavin Andresen, who then became the bitcoin lead developer at the Bitcoin Foundation, the ‘anarchic’ bitcoin community’s closest thing to an official public face.[24]

The value of the first bitcoin transactions were negotiated by individuals on the bitcoin forum with one notable transaction of 10,000 BTC used to indirectly purchase two pizzas delivered by Papa John’s.[13]

On 6 August 2010, a major vulnerability in the bitcoin protocol was spotted. Transactions weren’t properly verified before they were included in the transaction log or blockchain, which let users bypass bitcoin’s economic restrictions and create an indefinite number of bitcoins.[25][26] On 15 August, the vulnerability was exploited; over 184 billion bitcoins were generated in a transaction, and sent to two addresses on the network. Within hours, the transaction was spotted and erased from the transaction log after the bug was fixed and the network forked to an updated version of the bitcoin protocol.[27] This was the only major security flaw found and exploited in bitcoin’s history.[25][26]

Growth of bitcoin casino list

2011

Based on bitcoin’s open source code, other cryptocurrencies started to emerge.[28]

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit group, started accepting bitcoins in January 2011,[29] then stopped accepting them in June 2011, citing concerns about a lack of legal precedent about new currency systems.[30] The EFF’s decision was reversed on 17 May 2013 when they resumed accepting bitcoin.[31]

In June 2011 Wikileaks[32] and other organizations began to accept bitcoins for donations.

On 22 March 2011 WeUseCoins published the first viral video [33] which has had over 6.4 million views. In September 2011 Vitalik Buterin co-founded Bitcoin Magazine. On 23 December 2011, Douglas Feigelson of BitBills filed a patent application for “Creating And Using Digital Currency” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, an action which was contested based on prior art in June 2013.[34][35]

2012

In January 2012, bitcoin was featured as the main subject within a fictionalized trial on the CBS legal drama The Good Wife in the third-season episode “Bitcoin for Dummies”. The host of CNBC’s Mad Money, Jim Cramer, played himself in a courtroom scene where he testifies that he doesn’t consider bitcoin a true currency, saying “There’s no central bank to regulate it; it’s digital and functions completely peer to peer”.[36]

In September 2012, the Bitcoin Foundation was launched to “accelerate the global growth of bitcoin through standardization, protection, and promotion of the open source protocol”. The founders were Gavin Andresen, Jon Matonis, Patrick Murck, Charlie Shrem, and Peter Vessenes.[37]

In October 2012, BitPay reported having over 1,000 merchants accepting bitcoin under its payment processing service.[38] In November 2012, WordPress had started accepting bitcoins.[39]

2013

In February 2013 the bitcoin-based payment processor Coinbase reported selling US$1 million worth of bitcoins in a single month at over $22 per bitcoin.[40] The Internet Archive announced that it was ready to accept donations as bitcoins and that it intends to give employees the option to receive portions of their salaries in bitcoin currency.[41]

In March the bitcoin transaction log called the blockchain temporarily split into two independent chains with differing rules on how transactions were accepted. For six hours two bitcoin networks operated at the same time, each with its own version of the transaction history. The core developers called for a temporary halt to transactions, sparking a sharp sell-off.[42] Normal operation was restored when the majority of the network downgraded to version 0.7 of the bitcoin software.[42] The Mt. Gox exchange briefly halted bitcoin deposits and the exchange rate briefly dipped by 23% to $37 as the event occurred[43][44] before recovering to previous level of approximately $48 in the following hours.[45] In the US, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) established regulatory guidelines for “decentralized virtual currencies” such as bitcoin, classifying American bitcoin miners who sell their generated bitcoins as Money Service Businesses (or MSBs), that may be subject to registration and other legal obligations.[46][47][48]

In April, payment processors BitInstant and Mt. Gox experienced processing delays due to insufficient capacity[49] resulting in the bitcoin exchange rate dropping from $266 to $76 before returning to $160 within six hours.[50] Bitcoin gained greater recognition when services such as OkCupid and Foodler began accepting it for payment.[51]

On 15 May 2013, the US authorities seized accounts associated with Mt. Gox after discovering that it had not registered as a money transmitter with FinCEN in the US.[52][53]

On 17 May 2013, it was reported that BitInstant processed approximately 30 percent of the money going into and out of bitcoin, and in April alone facilitated 30,000 transactions,[54]

On 23 June 2013, it was reported that the US Drug Enforcement Administration listed 11.02 bitcoins as a seized asset in a United States Department of Justice seizure notice pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 881.[55] This marked the first time a government agency claimed to have seized bitcoin.[56][57]

In July 2013, a project began in Kenya linking bitcoin with M-Pesa, a popular mobile payments system, in an experiment designed to spur innovative payments in Africa.[58] During the same month the Foreign Exchange Administration and Policy Department in Thailand stated that bitcoin lacks any legal framework and would therefore be illegal, which effectively banned trading on bitcoin exchanges in the country.[59][60] According to Vitalik Buterin, a writer for Bitcoin Magazine, “bitcoin’s fate in Thailand may give the electronic currency more credibility in some circles”, but he was concerned it didn’t bode well for bitcoin in China.[61]

On 6 August 2013, Federal Judge Amos Mazzant of the Eastern District of Texas of the Fifth Circuit ruled that bitcoins are “a currency or a form of money” (specifically securities as defined by Federal Securities Laws), and as such were subject to the court’s jurisdiction,[62][63] and Germany’s Finance Ministry subsumed bitcoins under the term “unit of account”—a financial instrument—though not as e-money or a functional currency, a classification nonetheless having legal and tax implications.[64]

In October 2013, the FBI seized roughly 26,000 BTC from website Silk Road during the arrest of alleged owner Ross William Ulbricht.[65][66][67] Two companies, Robocoin and Bitcoiniacs launched the world’s first bitcoin ATM on 29 October 2013 in Vancouver, BC, Canada, allowing clients to sell or purchase bitcoin currency at a downtown coffee shop.[68][69][70] Chinese internet giant Baidu had allowed clients of website security services to pay with bitcoins.[71]

In November 2013, the University of Nicosia announced that it would be accepting bitcoin as payment for tuition fees, with the university’s chief financial officer calling it the “gold of tomorrow”.[72] During November 2013, the China-based bitcoin exchange BTC China overtook the Japan-based Mt. Gox and the Europe-based Bitstamp to become the largest bitcoin trading exchange by trade volume.[73]

In December 2013, Overstock.com[74] announced plans to accept bitcoin in the second half of 2014. On 5 December 2013, the People’s Bank of China prohibited Chinese financial institutions from using bitcoins.[75] After the announcement, the value of bitcoins dropped,[76] and Baidu no longer accepted bitcoins for certain services.[77] Buying real-world goods with any virtual currency had been illegal in China since at least 2009.[78]

2014

In January 2014, Zynga[79] announced it was testing bitcoin for purchasing in-game assets in seven of its games. That same month, The D Las Vegas Casino Hotel and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino properties in downtown Las Vegas announced they would also begin accepting bitcoin, according to an article by USA Today. The article also stated the currency would be accepted in five locations, including the front desk and certain restaurants.[80] The network rate exceeded 10 petahash/sec.[81] TigerDirect[82] and Overstock.com[83] started accepting bitcoin.

In early February 2014, one of the largest bitcoin exchanges, Mt. Gox,[84] suspended withdrawals citing technical issues.[85] By the end of the month, Mt. Gox had filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan amid reports that 744,000 bitcoins had been stolen.[86] Months before the filing, the popularity of Mt. Gox had waned as users experienced difficulties withdrawing funds.[87]

In June 2014 the network exceeded 100 petahash/sec.[88] On 18 June 2014, it was announced that bitcoin payment service provider BitPay would become the new sponsor of St. Petersburg Bowl under a two-year deal, renamed the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl. Bitcoin was to be accepted for ticket and concession sales at the game as part of the sponsorship, and the sponsorship itself was also paid for using bitcoin.[89]

In July 2014 Newegg and Dell[90] started accepting bitcoin.

In September 2014 TeraExchange, LLC, received approval from the U.S.Commodity Futures Trading Commission “CFTC” to begin listing an over-the-counter swap product based on the price of a bitcoin. The CFTC swap product approval marks the first time a U.S. regulatory agency approved a bitcoin financial product.[91]

In December 2014 Microsoft began to accept bitcoin to buy Xbox games and Windows software.[92]

In 2014, several lighthearted songs celebrating bitcoin such as the Ode to Satoshi[93] have been released.[94]

A documentary film, The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin, was released in 2014, featuring interviews with bitcoin users, such as a computer programmer and a drug dealer.[95]

2015

In January 2015 Coinbase raised 75 million USD as part of a Series C funding round, smashing the previous record for a bitcoin company.[96] Less than one year after the collapse of Mt. Gox, United Kingdom-based exchange Bitstamp announced that their exchange would be taken offline while they investigate a hack which resulted in about 19,000 bitcoins (equivalent to roughly US$5 million at that time) being stolen from their hot wallet.[97] The exchange remained offline for several days amid speculation that customers had lost their funds. Bitstamp resumed trading on 9 January after increasing security measures and assuring customers that their account balances would not be impacted.[98]

In March 2015 21 Inc announced it had raised 116 million USD in venture funding, the largest amount for any digital currency-related companies.[99]

As of August 2015 it was estimated that 160,000 merchants accept bitcoin payments.[100] Barclays announced that they would become the first UK high street bank to start accepting bitcoin, with a plan to facilitate users to make charitable donations using the cryptocurrency outside their systems.[101] They partnered in April 2016 with mobile payment startup Circle Internet Financial.[102]

In October 2015, a proposal was submitted to the Unicode Consortium to add a codepoint for the bitcoin symbol.[103]

2016

In January 2016, the network rate exceeded 1 exahash/sec.[104]

In March 2016, the Cabinet of Japan recognized virtual currencies like bitcoin as having a function similar to real money.[105] Bidorbuy, the largest South African online marketplace, launched bitcoin payments for both buyers and sellers.[106]

In April 2016, Steam started accepting bitcoin as payment for video games and other online media.[107]

In July 2016, researchers published a paper showing that by November 2013 bitcoin commerce was no longer driven by “sin” activities but instead by legitimate enterprises.[108] Uber switched to bitcoin in Argentina after the government blocked credit card companies from dealing with Uber.[109]

In August 2016, a major bitcoin exchange, Bitfinex, was hacked and nearly 120,000 BTC (around $60m) was stolen.[110]

In September 2016, the number of bitcoin ATMs had doubled over the last 18 months and reached 771 ATMs worldwide.[111]

In November 2016, the Swiss Railway operator SBB (CFF) upgraded all their automated ticket machines so that bitcoin could be bought from them using the scanner on the ticket machine to scan the bitcoin address on a phone app.[112]

Bitcoin generates more academic interest year after year; the number of Google Scholar articles published mentioning bitcoin grew from 83 in 2009, to 424 in 2012, and 3580 in 2016. Also, the academic Ledger (journal) published its first issue. It is edited by Peter Rizun.

2017

The number of businesses accepting bitcoin continues to increase. In January 2017, NHK reported the number of online stores accepting bitcoin in Japan had increased 4.6 times over the past year.[113] BitPay CEO Stephen Pair declared the company’s transaction rate grew 3× from January 2016 to February 2017, and explained usage of bitcoin is growing in B2B supply chain payments.[114]

Bitcoin gains more legitimacy among lawmakers and legacy financial companies. For example, Japan passed a law to accept bitcoin as a legal payment method,[115] and Russia has announced that it will legalize the use of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.[116] And Norway’s largest online bank, Skandiabanken, integrates bitcoin accounts.[117]

In March 2017, the number of GitHub projects related to bitcoin passed 10,000.[118]

Exchange trading volumes continue to increase. For the 6-month period ending March 2017, Mexican exchange Bitso saw trading volume increase 1500%.[119] Between January and May 2017 Poloniex saw an increase of more than 600% active traders online and regularly processed 640% more transactions.[120]

In June 2017, the bitcoin symbol was encoded in Unicode version 10.0 at position U+20BF (₿) in the Currency Symbols block.[121]

Up until July 2017, bitcoin users maintained a common set of rules for the cryptocurrency.[122] On 1 August 2017 bitcoin split into two derivative digital currencies, the 1MB blocksize legacy chain bitcoin (BTC) and the 8MB blocksize hard fork upgrade Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The split has been called the Bitcoin Cash hard fork.[123]

On 6 December 2017 the software marketplace Steam announced that it would no longer accept bitcoin as payment for its products, citing slow transactions speeds, price volatility, and high fees for transactions.[124][125]

2018

On 22 January 2018, South Korea brought in a regulation that requires all the bitcoin traders to reveal their identity, thus putting a ban on anonymous trading of bitcoins.[126]

On 24 January 2018, the online payment firm Stripe announced that it would phase out its support for bitcoin payments by late April 2018, citing declining demand, rising fees and longer transaction times as the reasons.[127]

Among the factors which may have contributed to this rise were the European sovereign-debt crisis—particularly the 2012–2013 Cypriot financial crisis—statements by FinCEN improving the currency’s legal standing and rising media and Internet interest.[128][129][130][131]

Until 2013, almost all market with bitcoins were in United States dollars (US $).[132][133][134]

As the market valuation of the total stock of bitcoins approached US$1 billion, some commentators called bitcoin prices a bubble.[135][136][137] In early April 2013, the price per bitcoin dropped from $266 to around $50 and then rose to around $100. Over two weeks starting late June 2013 the price dropped steadily to $70. The price began to recover, peaking once again on 1 October at $140. On 2 October, The Silk Road was seized by the FBI. This seizure caused a flash crash to $110. The price quickly rebounded, returning to $200 several weeks later.[138] The latest run went from $200 on 3 November to $900 on 18 November.[139] Bitcoin passed US$1,000 on 28 November 2013 at Mt. Gox.

Prices fell to around $400 in April 2014, before rallying in the middle of the year. They then declined to not much more than $200 in early 2015.[140]

Satoshi Nakamoto and new bitcoin casinos

“Satoshi Nakamoto” is presumed to be a pseudonym for the person or people who designed the original bitcoin protocol in 2008 and launched the network in 2009. Nakamoto was responsible for creating the majority of the official bitcoin software and was active in making modifications and posting technical information on the bitcoin forum.[13] Investigations into the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto were attempted by The New Yorker and Fast Company. The New Yorker’s investigation brought up at least two possible candidates: Michael Clear and Vili Lehdonvirta. Fast Company’s investigation brought up circumstantial evidence linking an encryption patent application filed by Neal King, Vladimir Oksman and Charles Bry on 15 August 2008, and the bitcoin.org domain name which was registered 72 hours later. The patent application (#20100042841) contained networking and encryption technologies similar to bitcoin’s, and textual analysis revealed that the phrase “… computationally impractical to reverse” appeared in both the patent application and bitcoin’s whitepaper.[12] All three inventors explicitly denied being Satoshi Nakamoto.[161][162] In May 2013, Ted Nelson speculated that Japanese mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki is Satoshi Nakamoto.[163] Later in 2013 the Israeli researchers Dorit Ron and Adi Shamir pointed to Silk Road-linked Ross William Ulbricht as the possible person behind the cover. The two researchers based their suspicion on an analysis of the network of bitcoin transactions.[164] These allegations were contested[165] and Ron and Shamir later retracted their claim.[166]

Nakamoto’s involvement with bitcoin does not appear to extend past mid-2010.[13] In April 2011, Nakamoto communicated with a bitcoin contributor, saying that he had “moved on to other things”.[17]

Stefan Thomas, a Swiss coder and active community member, graphed the time stamps for each of Nakamoto’s 500-plus bitcoin forum posts; the resulting chart showed a steep decline to almost no posts between the hours of 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time. Because this pattern held true even on Saturdays and Sundays, it suggested that Nakamoto was asleep at this time, and the hours of 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. GMT are midnight to 6 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (North American Eastern Standard Time). Other clues suggested that Nakamoto was British: A newspaper headline he had encoded in the genesis block came from the UK-published newspaper The Times, and both his forum posts and his comments in the bitcoin source code used British English spellings, such as “optimise” and “colour”.[13]

An Internet search by an anonymous blogger of texts similar in writing to the bitcoin whitepaper suggests Nick Szabo’s “bit gold” articles as having a similar author.[8] Nick denied being Satoshi, and stated his official opinion on Satoshi and bitcoin in a May 2011 article.[167]

In a March 2014 article in Newsweek, journalist Leah McGrath Goodman doxed Dorian S. Nakamoto of Temple City, California, saying that Satoshi Nakamoto is the man’s birth name. Her methods and conclusion drew widespread criticism.[168][169]

In June 2016, the London Review of Books published a piece by Andrew O’Hagan about Nakamoto.[170]. The real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto still remains a matter of dispute.

Forks

A fork referring to a blockchain is defined variously as a blockchain split into two paths forward, or as a change of protocol rules. Accidental forks on the bitcoin network regularly occur as part of the mining process. They happen when two miners find a block at a similar point in time. As a result, the network briefly forks. This fork is subsequently resolved by the software which automatically chooses the longest chain, thereby orphaning the extra blocks added to the shorter chain (that were dropped by the longer chain).[171]

March 2013

On 12 March 2013, a bitcoin miner running version 0.8.0 of the bitcoin software created a large block that was considered invalid in version 0.7 (due to an undiscovered inconsistency between the two versions). This created a split or “fork” in the blockchain since computers with the recent version of the software accepted the invalid block and continued to build on the diverging chain, whereas older versions of the software rejected it and continued extending the blockchain without the offending block. This split resulted in two separate transaction logs being formed without clear consensus, which allowed for the same funds to be spent differently on each chain. In response, the Mt. Gox exchange temporarily halted bitcoin deposits.[172] The exchange rate fell 23% to $37 on the Mt. Gox exchange but rose most of the way back to its prior level of $48.[43][44]

Miners resolved the split by downgrading to version 0.7, putting them back on track with the canonical blockchain. User funds largely remained unaffected and were available when network consensus was restored.[173] The network reached consensus and continued to operate as normal a few hours after the split.[174]

Regulatory issues of bitcoin and bitcoin casinos

On 18 March 2013, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (or FinCEN), a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury, issued a report regarding centralized and decentralized “virtual currencies” and their legal status within “money services business” (MSB) and Bank Secrecy Act regulations.[48][53] It classified digital currencies and other digital payment systems such as bitcoin as “virtual currencies” because they are not legal tender under any sovereign jurisdiction. FinCEN cleared American users of bitcoin of legal obligations[53] by saying, “A user of virtual currency is not an MSB under FinCEN’s regulations and therefore is not subject to MSB registration, reporting, and recordkeeping regulations.” However, it held that American entities who generate “virtual currency” such as bitcoins are money transmitters or MSBs if they sell their generated currency for national currency: “…a person that creates units of convertible virtual currency and sells those units to another person for real currency or its equivalent is engaged in transmission to another location and is a money transmitter.” This specifically extends to “miners” of the bitcoin currency who may have to register as MSBs and abide by the legal requirements of being a money transmitter if they sell their generated bitcoins for national currency and are within the United States.[46] Since FinCEN issued this guidance, dozens of virtual currency exchangers and administrators have registered with FinCEN, and FinCEN is receiving an increasing number of suspicious activity reports (SARs) from these entities.[175]

Additionally, FinCEN claimed regulation over American entities that manage bitcoins in a payment processor setting or as an exchanger: “In addition, a person is an exchanger and a money transmitter if the person accepts such de-centralized convertible virtual currency from one person and transmits it to another person as part of the acceptance and transfer of currency, funds, or other value that substitutes for currency.”[47][48]

In summary, FinCEN’s decision would require bitcoin exchanges where bitcoins are traded for traditional currencies to disclose large transactions and suspicious activity, comply with money laundering regulations, and collect information about their customers as traditional financial institutions are required to do.[53][176][177]

Patrick Murck of the Bitcoin Foundation criticized FinCEN’s report as an “overreach” and claimed that FinCEN “cannot rely on this guidance in any enforcement action”.[178][non-primary source needed]

Jennifer Shasky Calvery, the director of FinCEN said, “Virtual currencies are subject to the same rules as other currencies. … Basic money-services business rules apply here.”[53]

In its October 2012 study, Virtual currency schemes, the European Central Bank concluded that the growth of virtual currencies will continue, and, given the currencies’ inherent price instability, lack of close regulation, and risk of illegal uses by anonymous users, the Bank warned that periodic examination of developments would be necessary to reassess risks.

In 2013, the U.S. Treasury extended its anti-money laundering regulations to processors of bitcoin transactions.

In June 2013, Bitcoin Foundation board member Jon Matonis wrote in Forbes that he received a warning letter from the California Department of Financial Institutions accusing the foundation of unlicensed money transmission. Matonis denied that the foundation is engaged in money transmission and said he viewed the case as “an opportunity to educate state regulators.”

In late July 2013, the industry group Committee for the Establishment of the Digital Asset Transfer Authority began to form to set best practices and standards, to work with regulators and policymakers to adapt existing currency requirements to digital currency technology and business models and develop risk management standards.

In 2014, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed an administrative action against Erik T. Voorhees, for violating Securities Act Section 5 for publicly offering unregistered interests in two bitcoin websites in exchange for bitcoins.

Theft and exchange shutdowns

Bitcoins can be stored in a bitcoin cryptocurrency wallet. Theft of bitcoin has been documented on numerous occasions. At other times, bitcoin exchanges have shut down, taking their clients’ bitcoins with them. A Wired study published April 2013 showed that 45 percent of bitcoin exchanges end up closing.

On 19 June 2011, a security breach of the Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange caused the nominal price of a bitcoin to fraudulently drop to one cent on the Mt. Gox exchange, after a hacker used credentials from a Mt. Gox auditor’s compromised computer illegally to transfer a large number of bitcoins to himself. They used the exchange’s software to sell them all nominally, creating a massive “ask” order at any price. Within minutes, the price reverted to its correct user-traded value. Accounts with the equivalent of more than US$8,750,000 were affected.

In July 2011, the operator of Bitomat, the third-largest bitcoin exchange, announced that he had lost access to his wallet.dat file with about 17,000 bitcoins (roughly equivalent to US$220,000 at that time). He announced that he would sell the service for the missing amount, aiming to use funds from the sale to refund his customers.

In August 2011, MyBitcoin, a now defunct bitcoin transaction processor, declared that it was hacked, which caused it to be shut down, paying 49% on customer deposits, leaving more than 78,000 bitcoins (equivalent to roughly US$800,000 at that time) unaccounted for.

In early August 2012, a lawsuit was filed in San Francisco court against Bitcoinica — a bitcoin trading venue — claiming about US$460,000 from the company. Bitcoinica was hacked twice in 2012, which led to allegations that the venue neglected the safety of customers’ money and cheated them out of withdrawal requests.

In late August 2012, an operation titled Bitcoin Savings and Trust was shut down by the owner, leaving around US$5.6 million in bitcoin-based debts; this led to allegations that the operation was a Ponzi scheme. In September 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission had reportedly started an investigation on the case.

In September 2012, Bitfloor, a bitcoin exchange, also reported being hacked, with 24,000 bitcoins (worth about US$250,000) stolen. As a result, Bitfloor suspended operations. The same month, Bitfloor resumed operations; its founder said that he reported the theft to FBI, and that he plans to repay the victims, though the time frame for repayment is unclear.

On 3 April 2013, Instawallet, a web-based wallet provider, was hacked, resulting in the theft of over 35,000 bitcoins which were valued at US$129.90 per bitcoin at the time, or nearly $4.6 million in total. As a result, Instawallet suspended operations.

On 11 August 2013, the Bitcoin Foundation announced that a bug in a pseudorandom number generator within the Android operating system had been exploited to steal from wallets generated by Android apps; fixes were provided 13 August 2013.

In October 2013, Inputs.io, an Australian-based bitcoin wallet provider was hacked with a loss of 4100 bitcoins, worth over A$1 million at time of theft. The service was run by the operator TradeFortress. Coinchat, the associated bitcoin chat room, has been taken over by a new admin.

On 26 October 2013, a Hong-Kong based bitcoin trading platform owned by Global Bond Limited (GBL) vanished with 30 million yuan (US$5 million) from 500 investors.

Mt. Gox, the Japan-based exchange that in 2013 handled 70% of all worldwide bitcoin traffic, declared bankruptcy in February 2014, with bitcoins worth about $390 million missing, for unclear reasons. The CEO was eventually arrested and charged with embezzlement.

On 3 March 2014, Flexcoin announced it was closing its doors because of a hack attack that took place the day before. In a statement that once occupied their homepage, they announced on 3 March 2014 that “As Flexcoin does not have the resources, assets, or otherwise to come back from this loss [the hack], we are closing our doors immediately.” Users can no longer log into the site.

Chinese cryptocurrency exchange Bter lost $2.1 million in BTC in February 2015.

The Slovenian exchange Bitstamp lost bitcoin worth $5.1 million to a hack in January 2015.

The US-based exchange Cryptsy declared bankruptcy in January 2016, ostensibly because of a 2014 hacking incident; the court-appointed receiver later alleged that Cryptsy’s CEO had stolen $3.3 million.

In May 2016, Gatecoin closed temporarily after a breach had caused a loss of about $2 million in cryptocurrency. It subsequently relaunched its exchange in August 2016 and is slowly reimbursing its customers.

In August 2016, hackers stole some $72 million in customer bitcoin from the Hong-Kong-based exchange Bitfinex.

In December 2017, hackers stole 4,700 bitcoins from NiceHash a platform that allowed users to sell hashing power. The value of the stolen bitcoins totaled about $80M.

On December 19, 2017, Yapian, a company that owns the Youbit cryptocurrency exchange in South Korea, filed for bankruptcy following a hack, the second in eight months.

Taxation and regulation

In 2012, the Cryptocurrency Legal Advocacy Group (CLAG) stressed the importance for taxpayers to determine whether taxes are due on a bitcoin-related transaction based on whether one has experienced a “realization event”: when a taxpayer has provided a service in exchange for bitcoins, a realization event has probably occurred and any gain or loss would likely be calculated using fair market values for the service provided.”

In August 2013, the German Finance Ministry characterized bitcoin as a unit of account, usable in multilateral clearing circles and subject to capital gains tax if held less than one year.

On 5 December 2013, the People’s Bank of China announced in a press release regarding bitcoin regulation that whilst individuals in China are permitted to freely trade and exchange bitcoins as a commodity, it is prohibited for Chinese financial banks to operate using bitcoins or for bitcoins to be used as legal tender currency, and that entities dealing with bitcoins must track and report suspicious activity to prevent money laundering. The value of bitcoin dropped on various exchanges between 11 and 20 percent following the regulation announcement, before rebounding upward again.

Arbitrary blockchain content

Bitcoin’s blockchain can be loaded with arbitrary data. In 2008 researchers from RWTH Aachen University and Goethe University identified 1,600 files added to the blockchain, 59 of which included links to unlawful images of child exploitation, politically sensitive content, or privacy violations. “Our analysis shows that certain content, eg, illegal pornography, can render the mere possession of a blockchain illegal.”

Interpol also sent out an alert in 2015 saying that “the design of the blockchain means there is the possibility of malware being injected and permanently hosted with no methods currently available to wipe this data”.

Bitcoin Cash Casinos – BCH Casinos – BSV & BCHSV & BCHABC

The best Bitcoin Cash casinos & BCH casinos

Following the fork of BCH into BSV (BCHSV) and BCH (BCHABC) we can no longer recommend any Bitcoin Cash casinos due to the fact both forks are now fully centralised, controlled by a single mining group each and likely to crash to zero in the near future.

The best Cryptocurrency casinos

Over the past few weeks, the bitcoin cash (BCH) community and developers have been discussing ‘zero-confirmation’ or ‘instant transactions.’ Many BCH supporters believe if the concept was broadly accepted, payments and transaction speed would be extremely fast bringing a significant competitive edge to the BCH network.

The Quest for Instant Transactions

The zero confirmation discussion has been talked about for quite some time in the cryptocurrency space and well before bitcoin cash existed. In the early days, there were many heated debates on whether or not accepting bitcoin transactions without a miner confirmation was safe. Zero confirmation transactions are broadcasted throughout the network’s nodes but have not been etched into the blockchain. A confirmation or blockchain record doesn’t happen until the miner mines a block which contains the specific transaction. The instant transaction topic is controversial because some believe the idea opens merchants up to double spend attacks. A double spend consists of spending the same transacted bitcoin twice before the miner confirms the transaction’s first confirmation.

On the Bitcoin Core (BTC) blockchain the average time is traditionally ten minutes, but when blocks are full that time can be extended to days. Even the bitcoin cash chain has a wait time of ten minutes and blocks are never full. For this reason, lots of BCH supporters believe bitcoin cash is a perfect network to start the widespread use of zero-confirmation transactions.

Bitcoin Cash Moves Towards 0-Confirmation Adoption

There are three fundamental reasons why individuals think BCH is the perfect candidate for zero-confirmation transactions. The first is the fact that BCH has removed Replace-by-Fee (RBF), a contentious piece of code that allows an unconfirmed transaction to be replaced by one that’s similar but with a higher fee. Secondly, there is plenty of room for transactions even with low fees, and, lastly, since the BCH hard fork this past November, confirmation times are always consistent.

About four years ago before bitcoin cash was even born, Gavin Andresen and Tom Harding wrote some code that created a relay for the BTC network that would prevent double spend attacks. This patch would allow the use of zero-confirmations in a much safer manner. The code was merged into the Bitcoin Core software but was later removed by Core developers. Core developers who removed Andresen and Harding’s patch from the equation then started claiming that zero-confirmation transactions were not safe. The Bitcoin Cash community believes that zero-confirmation transactions are reliable and secure.

Moreover, BCH-focused businesses and infrastructure providers have started putting zero confirmation acceptance to the test by allowing customers to transact that way. The firm Cryptonize.it offered a challenge to anyone willing to double spend on a $1,000 transaction. A person attempted it in the end and lost $2,000 worth of BCH in the end. Just recently the Chinese exchange Bitasia started allowing zero confirmation BCH deposits as well.

Safe, Fast and Reliable

Additionally, Tom Harding recently discussed the concept of zero confirmation transactions during his speech at the Satoshi’s Vision Conference in Tokyo. Harding’s discussion called ‘Native Respend Resistance’ discussed how the network could prevent double spends and enable the network to allow instant payments before they are verified by a miner. Harding says zero-confirms work on the BCH chain but he doesn’t know how many people are trying to double spend. Harding emphasizes the BCH community needs to be vigilant. The XT developer details how he experimented with these types of transactions, and explains his opinion of the maximum advisable value for a zero-confirmation transaction.

“That should be decided by the merchants themselves but generally the value should be much less than the cost to attack it,” Harding states during the end of his talk.

Right now the subject of instant BCH transactions is being discussed widely among the community. A few businesses are trialing the idea but the concept is not yet widely adopted. Some believe the next BCH upgrade will address zero confirmation transactions and possibly add some more preventive measures against double spending.

The majority of online crytocurrency exchanges support the new address format but some hardware wallets, such as Trezor, Ledger, and Keepkey, do not. The ‘legacy’ Bitcoin Cash addresses can be easily converted to CashAddr format, and vice versa, using online converters. Address in both formats are 100% equivalent. Find out more about the Cash Addr format change here.

Depositing in Bitcoin Cash:
At Winaday we use the new format as our depositing address (CashAddr). If you are having trouble depositing, you can always convert the Bitcoin Cash address displayed on the deposit page to the ‘legacy’ format using the converter.

Withdrawing in Bitcoin Cash:
Withdrawals made at Winaday will be sent to the new Bitcoin Cash address format (CashAddr). You can however convert the Bitcoin Cash address shown on the withdrawal page to the ‘legacy’ format if you continue to use the older format of address using the converter.

If you have any questions please contact Customer Support at any time.

PROVABILITY EXPLAINED

Provably Fair Roulette

Every Bgaming game you play here at Bitstarz is provably fair and verifiable immediately and independently by you!

We use a cryptographic method that ensures that we (the casino) or you (the player) can’t possibly know the outcome of the game until the moment it starts. We do this by letting you have a simple and visually verifiable input on the game and we show you a fingerprint of the spin we are going to use before the game starts so you can check after the game is over that we used the spin we said we would. Here’s how it works:

  1. We use a computer model for the Roulette Wheel and decide on a random spin to apply to it.

    We model the roulette wheel as a list of the tiles in the order they appear and then generate a random location for the roulette wheel to stop at. We use the best pseudorandom number generator out there, the Mersenne Twister algorithm. We call the spin ‘Result’.

  2. We show you a ‘fingerprint’ of the spin and a random number we call ‘Secret’.

    We call this Hash{Result+Secret}. We generate a random number called ‘secret’ and use this to create a fingerprint of the data to model the game. This ensures that you cannot figure out the final result of the spin from just the fingerprint. We create this unique finger print by hashing the data with the SHA-256 Hashing Algorithm . This creates a fingerprint that is unique to that exact spin of the wheel and Secret, and you can use this later to verify the game.

  3. We get you to have some input on the game.

    We let you add an extra push to the wheel. You can select a number from 0 to 36 (or 37 for American roulette which has an extra tile) to push the wheel further along by that amount when you press spin. You can either pick your own number or use one chosen randomly for you.

  4. You play the game!

    Place your bets, start the game, and most of all have fun.

  5. We show you the actual data used to generate your game!

    After the game is over, we show you the spin of the wheel (Result+Secret), the ‘fingerprint’ we showed you before the game (hash[Result+Secret]), the input you had on the game, and the final result. You can use our widget to verify that the spin matches the ‘fingerprint’ we gave you before the game, or you can use any third party hash calculator to verify it yourself!

  6. Check the effect you had on the game!

    You can even check the input you had on the game by comparing the spin (Result+Secret) and final result. Take the client seed and count that many tiles past the tile it was originally set to land on (found in Result+Secret) and you’ll be at the same tile as the final result!

Provably Fair Pocket Dice

To achieve Provably Fair Gaming we utilise strong cryptographic algorithms such as SHA256, Mersenne Twister and Fisher-Yates shuffle. These ensure the game cannot be tampered with.

Technical Implementation

  1. We generate 30 initial random numbers ranging from 1 to 6.
  2. We generate random server seed.
  3. The initial numbers are hashed using hash(“sha256”, json_encode($initial_numbers) . $server_seed). The resulting hash is made public.
  4. When you start a game, we use javascript in your browser to create a client seed.
  5. The initial numbers are shuffled calling Fisher-Yates shuffle with client seed.

Code used for hashing initial numbers:


  /**
  * Calculates hash of array with server seed
  * @param  array  $initialNumbers
  * @param  string $serverSeed
  * @return string
  */
  function hashInitialNumbers(array $initialNumbers, $serverSeed)
  {
      return hash('sha256', json_encode($initialNumbers) . $serverSeed);
  }

Code used for shuffling:


  /**
  * Shuffles array with client seed
  * @param  array  $items
  * @param  string $seed
  * @return array shuffled array
  */
  function fisherYatesShuffle(array $items, $seed)
  {
      $mt_seed = intval(substr(hash('sha256', $seed), -8), 16);
      mt_srand($mt_seed);
      $count = count($items);
      for ($i = $count - 1; $i > 0; $i--)
      {
          $j         = mt_rand(0, $i);
          $tmp       = $items[$i];
          $items[$i] = $items[$j];
          $items[$j] = $tmp;
      }
      return $items;
  }

  $finalShuffle = fisherYatesShuffle($initialNumbers, $clientSeed);
  $result = array_slice($finalShuffle, 0, 2);

Provably Fair Cards

  1. We generate a shuffled deck using modern shuffling techniques, as well as another number we call Secret.

    Secret is a number generated by the server and used for the hash (explained later). To generate the shuffled deck we use a method known as Fisher Yate’s Shuffle which is similar to picking a number out of a hat. To make sure the numbers picked are completely random, we use the Mersenne Twister algorithm to generate random numbers for the Fisher Yate’s Shuffle to use. This is considered the top standard for shuffling techniques. We call the shuffled deck ‘Result’.

  2. We show you a ‘fingerprint’ of the shuffled deck and the ‘Secret’.

    We call this Hash{Result+Secret}. We create this unique finger print by hashing the data with the SHA-256 Hashing Algorithm. This creates a fingerprint that is unique to that exact deck, and you can use this later to verify the game.

  3. We get you to have some input on the game.

    For card games, we let you cut the deck by picking a location to cut the deck. This is represented by a number called the client seed. We take the number you choose and use it to effect the outcome of the game. This ensures there is no way we could know the outcome of the game until the point it starts. So if for a game of poker you pick 24 as your client seed, we will cut the deck 24 cards from the top before dealing the cards and starting the game.

  4. You play the game!

    Place your bets, start the game, and most of all have fun.

  5. We show you the actual data used to generate your game!

    After the game is over, we show you the full shuffled deck (Result+Secret), the ‘fingerprint’ we showed you before the game (hash[Result+Secret]), the input you had on the game (Client Seed), and the Final Result. You can use our widget to verify that the spin matches the ‘fingerprint’ we gave you before the game, or you can use any third party hash calculator to verify it yourself!

  6. Check the effect you had on the game!

    You can even check the input you had on the game by comparing the fully shuffled deck (Result+Secret) and the deck after it was cut (Final Result). You will find that the values are the same deck, but one of them has been ‘cut’ at the position you chose!

Provably Fair Slots

  1. We use a computer model for the Slot Reels and decide on a random spin to apply to each one.

    We model each reel as a list of the tiles in the order they appear and then generate a random location for each reel to stop at. We use the best pseudorandom number generator out there, the Mersenne Twister algorithm, to generate a random number for each slot. We call the spin ‘Result’.

  2. We show you a ‘fingerprint’ of the spin and a random number we call ‘Secret’.

    We call this Hash{Result+Secret}. We generate a random number called ‘secret’ and use this to create a fingerprint of the data to model the game. This ensures that you cannot figure out the final result of the spin from just the fingerprint. We create this unique finger print by hashing the data with the SHA-256 Hashing Algorithm. This creates a fingerprint that is unique to that exact spin of the reel and Secret seed, and you can use this later to verify the game.

  3. We get you to have some input on the game.

    We let you add an extra push to each of the reels. You can select a number from 0 to 9 for each reel to push that reel further along by that amount. You can either pick your own number or use one chosen randomly for you.

  4. You play the game!

    Place your bets, start the game, and most of all have fun.

  5. We show you the actual data used to generate your game!

    After the game is over, we show you the spin of the reel (Result+Secret), the fingerprint (hash[Result+Secret]), the input you had on the game (client seed), and the final outcome of the game (Final Result). You can use our widget to verify that the spin matches the ‘fingerprint’ we gave you before the game, or you can use any third party hash calculator to verify it yourself!

  6. Check the effect you had on the game!

    You can check the input you had on the game by comparing the spin (Result+Secret) and Final Result. The input you had on the game, called the client seed, is a number where each digit represents a different reel. So, for a 5 reel slot machine it will be a 5 digit number. If your number was 30700 then for your final result you will have the icon at the top of the first reel match the first icon in the fourth set shown in Result (the first set counts as 0). The second icon will the second icon listed in first set, third icon will be the third icon listed in the eighth set and so on. You can do the same for the second and third rows too!

    Example:

    Final Result

    {“symbols”:[[“, “shield”,”siren”,”lightning”,”medusa”,”siren” ],[“, “thor”,”neptune”,”heracles”,”shield”,”artemis” ],[“, “coin”,”coin”,”themis”,”coin”,”thor” ]],”card”:”6D”}

    First Row – Green, Second Row – Blue, Third Row – Red

    Client Seed

    30700

    Result+Secret

    {“symbols”:[

    [“siren”, “siren” ,”heracles”, “medusa” , “siren” ], (0)

    [“themis”, “neptune” ,”themis”, “shield” , “artemis” ], (1)

    [“heracles”, “coin” ,”artemis”, “coin” , “thor” ], (2)

Why Monero

UNTRACEABLE

Unlike most of the digital coins, Monero uses a special technology called “ring signatures” which shuffles users’ public keys in order to eliminate the possibility to identify a particular user.

UNLINKABLE

Being a great feature, untreaceability doesn’t protect a receiver from defining his or her balance through inspecting ingoing messages to the user’s public address. Therefore, Monero employs a specific protocol which generates multiple unique one-time addresses that can only be linked by the payment receiver and are unfeasable to be revealed through blockhain analysis..

SECURE

Like any other digital currency, Monero is cryptographically secured. Though, the peculiarity of algorithm consists in tremendous computational and electric capibilities that a hacker would need to even try to steal your funds.
To put it in a nutshell, your wallet is unbreakable.

PRIVATE

Besides other features, privacy is basically provided with the idea of anonymous transactions without any obligations to cooperate with third parties. Monero is based on cryptography that has lots of muddling factors in its arsenal, making it difficult to detect whom transactions belong..

ANALYSIS RESISTANT

Monero’s blockhain analysis resistantce results from unlinkability, which was achieved by using a modified version of the Diffie-Hellman exchange protocol that generates multiple one-time public addresses that can only be simply gathered by the message receiver, but hardly analyzed by confused foreigners inside the block explorer.is.

This means Dash funds its own growth and adoption, consensus is guaranteed, and everyone is accountable to the network.

Just submit a treasury proposal and present your idea to the network for funding and make your case, or if you operate a Masternode, be sure to vote!

The Fastest Growing Network

Thanks to incentivization, Dash’s network has grown to 4,100 masternodes since launch in 2014, meaning Dash’s peer-to-peer network is one of the largest in the world.

Casino Extreme overview:

Casino Extreme is the ultimate crypto casino. Unlike most, not only do they have banking options of the slow and expensive Bitcoin (BTC) but they also have the fractionally less slow and expensive Ethereum (ETH), the slightly promising Bitcoin Cash (BCH), the “will they be allowed to survive” privacy coins Dash (Dash) and Monero (XMR), the poor mans Bitcoin – Litecon (LTC) whose CEO and founder Charlie Lee sold 100% of his stock at the start of January, as well as the worlds fastest, cheapest and most promising cryptocurrency Ripple (XRP). Yes, I am biased, personally I just can’t see the privacy coins surviving without eventual bans in most countries (Japan has already been tasking its exchanges to remove all privacy coins) and as for the rest, if it has a really solid use case and the software works then it will survive and flourish to a realistic level. I see two coins ruling them all within a couple of years and they are XRP and TRX.

Tron Casinos – TRX Casinos

Tron aka Tronix aka TRX is the next big thing in cryptocurrencies and is widely expected to be the long term number 2 (behind XRP) long after Bitcoin has bitten the preverbial dust.

At the moment there are no Tron casinos offering TRX casino options. This is a concious decision on behalf of the owners and the Chinese government. But you can expect Tron casinos to pop up as they get developed in late 2018 and on since it will be completely free from the Ethereum network by then and on it’s own platform which has been designed for entertainment and that includes gambling.

Update 14/03/2019:

Tron migrated from the Ethereum platform to it’s own mainnet towards the end of 2018. As mentioned previously, this allowed developers on the tron platform more freedom as the platform is specifically designed for entertainment. As such, casino and gambling Dapps have been spouting up left right and center. In terms of game play the quality of some of these Dapps leaves a lot to be desired, and they outweigh those few which are of an excellent standard.

With the anonymity offered by blockchain technology no registration is needed and once players have purchased a crypto token, they are able to play on the casino of choice without any restrictions. This unfortunately means that there is no regulation or oversight and problem gamblers aren’t flagged and are casinos not on gamstop and don’t have a self exclusion system in place.

One of the larger cryptocurrency casinos recently took a vote amongst its players who voted for TRX to be added to the payment methods. This casino whilst not on gamstop or SpelPaus but does offer a self-exclusion option for problem gamblers, read our review here

TRON Will Offer Gaming, Gambling and Sports Betting for Young Audience

By: Bruce Haring

Singapore-based TRON, an open-source global digital entertainment protocol plans to launch a blockchain-based betting application later this year. The blockchain platform will include betting on sports and feature online poker and other gambling games.

TRON is building a decentralized online gaming platform equipped with a top-up system open to all virtual currencies and legal tender, according to the company’s white paper. TRON will be compatible with multiple blockchain networks and smart contract systems, including bitcoin and ethereum. Developers can also create their own online gaming platforms with the tools provided.

The company is now planning an initial coin offering (ICO) for its Tronix (or TRX) tokens, which will be used for in-network settlements. The plan is to issue 100 billion tokens during the ICO, which is tentatively set for October. Funds will be used to improve the TRON technical team and bring more platforms into the universe, including some online entertainment startups.

COO By Wang talked with Block Tribune about the company’s plans.

BLOCK TRIBUNE:  What games will you feature?

BY WANG: In the first stage, we will begin with some kinds of games more compatible with our economic system, like SIM and online gambling.

BLOCK TRIBUNE:  Will the house have an edge?  Or is it strictly random?

BY WANG: The house doesn’t have an edge, but it is not random.

BLOCK TRIBUNE:  What will the tokens allow you to do in the ecosystem?

BY WANG: The TRX tokens will make all the games into a whole system. For example, a high-level gambling user will enjoy a high-level experience in a FPS game because the TRX is not only the payment method. TRX will make for a smooth payment between different games even countries.

BLOCK TRIBUNE:  What are the assurances of a fair game?

BY WANG:The features of blockchain are open, fair, transparent and immutable, which will assure a fair game.

BLOCK TRIBUNE: Do you anticipate most of your audience coming from the Asia Pacific region?

BY WANG:We think most of our early users will be from the Asia Pacific region, thanks to our connection with China’s leading audio content community, the Peiwo app, with over ten million users and over one million monthly active users.

BLOCK TRIBUNE: You are focused on mobile. Does that mean you’re skewing toward a younger audience?

BY WANG:  Yes, TRON is a blockchain-based, open-source protocol for the global digital entertainment industry and young people are the main users of online game, gambling, live-streaming and social apps, so we will skew toward a younger audience.

Could This Millennial ‘Crypto’ Tech Visionary Be The Next Jack Ma?


There are not many people who are truly believed to be the ‘next Jack Ma’, founder and executive chairman of Alibaba. Enter, stage right, Justin Sun, an ingenious visionary with the determination to make his businesses global game changers. Now could he really be the next Jack Ma in the making?

Sun is the founder and CEO of TRON, a blockchain-based and open-source platform for the global digital entertainment industry, with an upcoming Initial Coin Offering (ICO) scheduled for this September.

TRON has already transcended Bitcoin and Ethereum to become the first smart contract blockchain protocol with over 10 million (m) wallet users in the world.

As a decentralized digital entertainment protocol based on the blockchain, TRON enhances digital entertainment platforms around the world, including live shows, social networks, online casinos and games as well as mobile games, by providing functions of payment, development, storage and credit sharing.

And, there was me thinking of the 1982 sci-fi action film ‘Tron’ starring Jeff Bridges as a computer programmer transported inside the software world of a mainframe computer, where he interacts with programs in his effort to escape.

Fast forward and now for the first time in history, TRON introduces the concept of the shared economy into the digital entertainment. It puts texts, pictures, videos and live broadcasts in distributed storage with the users on the platform being content producers.

Justin Sun CEO and Founder of Chinese blockchain-based and open-source platform TRON.

The protocol used by TRON currently enables the digital entertainment content providers to interact with ordinary users to what is touted as an unprecedented level – without having to pay a high price for Google Play, Apple Store and other distribution platforms.

Interest in TRON is running on high as it is already showing the same magnitude and growth path as Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, gaining the financial backing and seals of approval from some of the biggest business names in the world. Well, in China to be precise.

The list of protagonists include Tang Binsen, the founder of Clash of Kings; Dai Wei, the founder and CEO of OFO bike, one of the largest sharing economy companies in China; Chaoyong Wang, founder of China Equity Group, one of the largest investment groups in China with market value of over $2 billion (bn); Yin Mingshan, LiFan group founder and one of the largest motor manufacturers in China; Yang Linke, the founder of BTCC.com.

They are joined by Xue Manzi, one of the most famous Angel Investors in China, Huobi.com and Jubi.com amongst others.

The global market for digital entertainment products has been estimated according to various sources to be worth approximately $1 trillion, split between lifestyle ($200bn), online betting ($500bn), online gaming (c.$100bn) and information sharing ($100bn).

Sun, who has appeared among the ranks of the Forbes China “30 under 30” in both 2015 and 2017 plus Forbes Asia “30 under 30” this year, was personally invited to become one of the first students of Hupan University. Located in Hangzhou in eastern China’s Zhejiang Province, the university was founded by Chinese business magnate Jack Ma who has net worth of around $36.4bn.

There were less than forty students lucky enough to be enrolled in this ‘life-changing’ course, where one of the lecturers was none other former English lecturer Mr. Ma himself.

Sun, a 26-year-old who is based in the Haidian District of Beijing and hails originally from Shandong Province on the coast by the Bohai Sea, became part of the cryptocurrency community back in 2012 with his first purchases of Bitcoin.

A year later he joined Ripple and worked as the chief representative of Greater China. He helped Ripple with the successful completion of their first-round financing, which totaled $30m and subsequently it them becoming one of the world’s top three virtual currency systems.

Peiwo App & Smart Contract Protocol

In 2015, Sun, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Masters Degree after studying for a Bachelor’s at Peking University, started a project called Peiwo, an app that is now one of the largest audio-based live show platforms in China, with over 10m registered users and around 1m monthly active users.

This September the Peiwo app will become the first TRON-compatible entertainment app and the first live show software in the world to support a ‘smart contract protocol’ of virtual currency, allowing those 10m registered users to benefit from the additional functions of virtual currency.

Commenting on developments, Sun said: “This is only the first move of TRON. Next, we will provide the infrastructure construction for entertainment systems around the world, including online casino and games. Additionally API access will be provided to facilitate robust settlement services. Our first move, though, is for TRON to make the Peiwo app benefit from its blockchain network.”

What TRON provides is a shared platform for the whole entertainment market to maintain user information and share it between systems, and is claiming that in so doing it is “breaking down information barriers” between apps.

It is explained that in this way users can significantly reduce information input efforts in specific apps, while developers can realize highly effective interactions in the realm of user identification, reducing duplicate identification costs, and preventing the risk of user information being stolen and leaked by intermediate agencies.

TRONIX Token

The token of the TRON platform, TRONIX, tracks users’ entertainment behaviors and shares credit data with apps within the TRON network.

TRX has additional values of information storage and identification, with records about user acquisition and TRX spending stored in the blockchain. Core information will be accessed by all TRON apps, acting as the only credential for users to play in the global entertainment system.

While TRON will support all kinds of virtual currencies, as the official currency of the platform, TRX will be used for the conversion and circulation of the entire world’s virtual currencies in TRON.

Sun boldly added: “We are very confident that TRON will reach a target of one million wallets registered within a year. The first  million registered users will be rewarded with considerable TRX tokens by registering on the TRON platform.”

Information, Credit Sharing & Global Payments

Nowadays, as entertainment apps and systems have short monetization cycles and lifecycles, individual developers cannot store or maintain users’ credit information in a particular entertainment system, so every entertainment system is almost like an information silo.

Before TRON, a global digital entertainment system would be faced with various problems with respect to payments. For example, if an Iranian wants to buy digital product from Japan, it is a problem for the user to pay the Japanese company in question. The payment chain and procedure are prolonged as it is impossible for a user to open a bank account in Japan only for this purpose. Through this platform, global payments are much more simplified.

Removing Barriers & Reducing Costs

The traditional online entertainment industry features high gross profits and high transaction volumes on a global scale. However, each entertainment system has its inherent token barrier. As a result, a user of a particular system using a different sub-system or app will incur a high transaction fee, so making it more difficult for users to switch between systems and apps.

Based on the TRON network, token barriers will be removed – or at least that is the theory. In the entertainment network, a payment settlement interface between systems will be created, realizing a trustworthy transaction information flow. This way, trust between people in numerous social and gaming links will evolve into trust between humans and technology.

Deep Integration

The TRON network has built an entire set of consensus mechanisms, which uses minimum costs to solve identification and personal credit issues in online transactions. It uses ‘point-to-point’ transactions to avoid traditional centralized settlement structure.

Furthermore, the network can play the host role between users and developers, to ensure authenticity and compliance of credit information. These advantages are being held up as “significantly improving” the efficiency of the global entertainment economy.

A decentralized economy is itself a typical feature of a market economy. Reduction in transaction costs will stimulate great increases in consumer demand, ushering in a new, vibrant growth of the global entertainment economy.

Blockchain Networks & Smart Contract Systems

TRON supports various kinds of blockchain networks and smart contract systems including Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, Qtum, and provides developers with multi-protocol infrastructure for entertainment app development and allows users to benefit from what it is described as “smooth” multi-protocol smart networks.

The TRON protocol has brought forth the new era in autonomous and trustworthy gambling, solving the issues of trust and providing developers the best environment for gambling game development.

Gaming companies are allowed to issue any platform-specific gaming currency and trade freely with the other game publishers within the TRON protocol, which will offer an intelligent contract guarantee system for the trades of different gaming currencies.

This is trumpeted as ensuring that all transactions are complete and smooth, thereby laying the foundation for a globalized and deregulated gaming environment.

In terms of the timeline for TRON going forward between now and December 2018, there are plans for the protocol preparation, the APP release and protocol go-live. Completed development of TRON’s first betting APP is set for early next month (September 7).

Justin Sun believes the future is bright. “I believe TRON will bring some major changes to today’s online entertainment industry and will endow the entire digital entertainment industry with a sense of globalization.”

He added: “Previously, as laws and regulations vary in different countries, there is not a universal digital currency system for the digital entertainment industry. With our current and future developments, we would like to think that we are set to shake the global, digital entertainment sector to the core.”

Given that Sun is half the age of Jack Ma he has many years ahead of him to emulate the Chinese billionaire, succeed and also make a few mistakes along the way. As Ma himself has revealed he was rejected from every job he applied for after college – including KFC – and in 2015 told journalist and talk show host Charlie Rose that he was rejected by Harvard ten times. So, get used to failure and learn lessons from it.

But no doubt his protégé will have gleaned some pearls of wisdom from the tycoon during his time at Hupan University. We could all do with some of that.

The forthcoming Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for TRON, which is being advised by Hai Liu, CEO and co-founder of Beico and partner at GSR Values, together with angel investors Weixing Chen and Charles Xue, is scheduled to commence on September 9, 2017.

Verge Casinos – XVG Casinos

XVG also known as Verge is privacy cryptocurrency which doesn’t really work. They made a huge splash in 2018 by asking their token holders to donate 3 million dollars in XVG to the developers so they could announce a major partnership. Sadly for those investors the partnership announcement was delayed for a month and their big annoucement was that they would become just an alternative payment for the PornHub website. Verge has since had two 51% hack attacks and many tests on PornHub have revealed that the payment option doesn’t even work.

This should all come as no surprise to anyone who does their own research as the CEO and chief developer of Verge XVG is a career failure who according to his Linkedin profile has so far produced 11 (yes ELEVEN) failed crypto projects / scams. To make matters worse you can even google the CEO’s criminal record which with 8 charges we know of to date doesn’t make for very pleasant reading.

Check out the Verge team they look like a trustworthy bunch don’t they, hiding behind anonymity… scam much? They also have a high profile partnership with TokenPay (TPAY) who if you do the research are about as reputable as Justin “Sunerok” “Vendetta” Vela himself. A partnership made in hell!

Despite all of this though, many crypto kids are still very passionate about the project and still don’t recognise it is a ponzi scheme. So for the uninformed or ignorant out there we have tried to find some reputable Verge casinos for you.

Build Your Own Casino Live With TokenPay (TPAY) And Verge (XVG) Integration

TokenGaming has launched a fully featured custom built gaming management platform featuring top titles from a wide spectrum of betting software developers, I can authoritatively state.

The brains behind the project state they have over 15 years as suppliers in the online gambling industry in Latin America. TokenGaming claims it has everything related to the gaming industry.

The unveiled platform will adopt TokenPay (TPAY) and Verge (XVG) using TokenPay Multisignature Transaction Engine Live.

The disclosure was made in a tweet by TokenPay:

“BUILD YOUR OWN CASINO Fully featured custom built gaming management platform with the top titles from a wide spectrum of betting software developers. TPAY and XVG payment integration coming soon with the TokenPay Multisignature Transaction Engine LIVE tokengaming.com.”

On the TokenGaming platform, there are over 50 products in casino, bingo, poker, virtual, sports and live casino. The firm is also able to develop customized platforms adaptable to the needs of any business model, with turnkey products and White Label solutions which are 100% adaptable to clients.

The platform offers online and land-based solutions, which makes all its products such as slots and sports usable in a game room, cybercafe and land base casinos.

The firm, which has a dependable market in all Latin America, gives clients the opportunity to accept crypto currency on their websites by integrating TokenGaming merchant through its state of the art API.

Among the crypto that would be accepted on platforms affiliated to TokenGaming are Verge (XVG) and TokenPay (TPAY). The two cryptocurrency, for sometimes now, have been working together on some projects.

The romance between the two platform started when Verge asked his users to contribute 75 million XVG (worth about $3.19 million) to enable it achieve the “largest cryptocurrency collaboration to hit the market.”

The donation, which Verge made like ‘crowdfund contest’, was proudly supported the most by TokenPay. The crypto platform donated 15 Million Verge XVG, the highest received during the crowdfunding.

TokenPay tweeted after the donation: “Big things happening with @vergecurrency. #VergeFam, we contributed 15,000,000 $XVG to the fundraising drive. #TokenPay & #VERGE are strong partners. Let’s help them hit their goal. http://Vergecurrency.com/donate.”

Then after the donation, the two platforms started working together. TokenPay team were present at the recent Verge Meet Up in Amsterdam.

Remember, when Litecoin founder, Charlie Lee, who later became a friend to TokenPay’s CEO, Derek Capo, disparaged Verge XVG for inducing PornHub partnership “with money”, Capo was the first to condemn Charlie on the statement.

The disagreement resulted in TokenPay (TPAY) and Litecoin signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement, which analyst say it may be on acquiring shares in some banks where TokenPay has upper hand.

Derek Capo said in a tweet: “TokenPay CEO derekcapo Interview with Sean Davis. THE TPAY ECOSYSTEM EXPLAINED. XVG Deal LTC NDA Signed.”

At first, the agreement between the two firms is not clear, however, Charlie in a message to Finance Magnates confirmed that Litecoin is “exploring” the idea.

It is no news that Litecoin is serious about having a debit car. The cryptocoin just partnered with Wirex and produced a Litecoin debit card afterward.

Verge XVG Casinos

The cryptocurrency, Verge (XVG), recently made global headlines after becoming the first coin to be accepted as a payment option on PornHub.com. Verge is a privacy-focused cryptocurrency that uses a range of new cryptographic technologies to allow users to make peer-to-peer and anonymous transactions. Anonymous transactions have an obvious benefit to those who wish to keep their spending habits private, and this privacy is alluring to many in the online casino market. There are other privacy cryptocurrencies available for casino gambling, including Monero and zCash, however for the purposes of this article the focus will remain on Verge.

Verge Fundamentals

Many users who wish to gamble with cryptocurrencies are also looking for the potential upside of the coin as an investment. This article should not be treated as investment advice, however it will provide some insight into the fundamentals of Verge and how it could provide a return on investment to those who hold it.

    • No fund raising through pre-mine or ICO

Very few cryptocurrencies have launched without a pre-mine (developers hoarding coins before launching publicly) or Initial Coin Offering (ICO). These strategies are legitimate ways to fund a project however should the project be successful, the average user is left at the mercy of a small group of hugely wealthy individuals. These individuals have the potential to manipulate the market or cause great volatility in the price of a coin. Verge have avoided this problem by opting not to go down the route of a pre-mine or ICO. Instead, Verge have been competitively mining XVG alongside the rest of the community.

    • Wraith Protocol

Verge understands that a privacy-only coin (such as Monero) may have considerable downsides in the future. In some instances, users may wish to make their transactions public (for example, if dealing with an escrow). Verge’s Wraith Protocol allows users to do just that; choosing – on a case by case basis – between privately or publicly broadcasting the transaction. Private transactions can be made using the Tor network, which is easily accessible through any one of the Verge Tor wallets outlined below.

    • Privacy-focused

By now it is clear that Verge’s unique selling point is in its privacy features. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple (XRP) and other highly popular cryptocurrencies face potential complications with their lack of privacy – real identities of users can be revealed from a history of transactions. Whilst some of these blockchains are introducing privacy features, their core protocol will always remain pseudonymous and Verge (along with other privacy coins) may quickly leapfrog them in terms of utility as a payment option.

Verge Casinos

Following the partnership of Verge and PornHub, XVG has gained a great deal of attention from the gambling market. As it currently stands, none of the casinos listed on TheBitcoinStrip.com accept the Verge cryptocurrency for deposits or withdrawals, however this page will be updated immediately once such news comes to light. The benefits of using Verge for both casinos and players alike cannot be underestimated, and may well improve upon Bitcoin due to the lower fees and faster transaction times that Verge provides.

Verge Wallets

If you are looking to start using XVG then the best place to begin is by downloading a wallet. These wallets all operate on the Tor network and are available on the following platforms:

  • Android
  • OSX
  • OSX (Electrum)
  • Windows
  • Windows (Electrum)
  • Linux (Electrum)

A Verge wallet for iOS is expected to be released soon.

Once a Verge wallet has been downloaded, users can purchase XVG at any of the major cryptocurrency exchanges. It is then advised that the coins are moved from an exchange to your newly downloaded Verge wallet for security purposes.

  • Do not rely on gambling as a source of income or to chase your losses.
  • Do not gamble if you are recovering from a dependency or if you are under the influence of alcohol or any other substance.
  • Set yourself limits within your means, for both purchasing and losses before you begin.
  • Do not let gambling interfere with other aspects of your daily life.

If you feel at any point that your gambling is becoming irresponsible, our casino hosts have several options at their disposal to help you takeback control.

Ripple Casinos – XRP Casinos

Ripple have never focused on the gamling market instead focussing on legitimate real world use cases like cross border payments, live streaming payments and the internet of value. There are a couple of XRP casinos in the works by external parties but for now as we don’t have much for you, we’ll share one of the best articles about Ripple and XRP (and Bitcoin) we have ever read:

The Slow But Inevitable Death of Bitcoin (and the rise of XRP and Ripple)

Jun 14, 2018

There, I said it..

Let me also say that without a doubt, Bitcoin will most likely continue its reign as the number one crypto for some time still, and it may even go up in value considerably. Simpletons will interpret continued price increases as assurance that it is actually getting stronger and that I’m obviously wrong; stupid wrong. They will laugh at me, spit on my blog, and verbally castrate me as a heretic to their Bitcoin faith… but oh, it’s coming my friends.. it’s coming. While everyone is so focused on the price, they are missing the single-most important factor that is leading Bitcoin to its doom: IT’S RAPIDLY LOSING DOMINANCE!! (<– click that link, seriously)

Obvious question is, WHEN will Bitcoin die?? That’s difficult to say with any meaningful precision. Could be weeks, could be 100 years. I’m not here to give you a date, I’m here to point out the trend towards it death. Some people would rebut this trend saying, “well that’s just because so many other coins have joined the cryptosphere”.. uh.. exactly, genius. The erosion of Bitcoin’s dominance is a consequence of other options available for investors.

So here’s a detailed list of what Bitcoin has to offer that no other coin has to offer:

  1. First to market

And that’s fucking it.

There’s nothing else at all about Bitcoin that virtually every other major coin doesn’t ALSO offer; despite perhaps your hugely misinformed presumptions otherwise.

Dufus: “But but but, it’s anonymous”. No it’s pseudoanonymous, just like most of the other coins.

Idiot: “But but but, it’s decentralized”. No, a few Chinese mining pools control over 51% of the hash rate, and 4.11% of BTC holders hold 96.53% of BTC

Moron: “But but but the government can never take your bitcoins away”. True, but they can make bitcoins illegal, destroying the current value into dust

Twit: “But but but Lightning Network will make Bitcoin competitive again”. LN works with ALL coins, it won’t give Bitcoin any special advantage. Moreoever, if an altcoin (say XRP?) already performs at far greater transaction rates than LN, and costs nearly nothing, then why would you choose a bicycle with wings, over a jet?

Anyways, I have these asinine conversations all the time on Twitter, particularly about the incredibly bonkers conspiracy attributes they associate with XRP, so no need to repeat ad infinitum here. The point is, Bitcoin is running out of cards. It simply cannot compete with the next generation of tokens. It’s basic human nature to stay with what is familiar, and so we witness the predictable manifestation of purists, maximalists, and anarchists, hanging on for dear life to their beloved ‘precious’. Here’s the kicker though, none of these Bitcoin evangelists have any power to stop what’s coming.

You may want to ask ‘why’ is Bitcoin slated for death? For the same reason we aren’t rolling around Rai Stones, there’s better tech available, and if people can save money and move money quicker, then they’re not going to give a damn that Bitcoin was first. Attrition will continue to eat away at the value of that simple dated novelty.

So that leaves just ‘when’ it will happen. Again, when Bitcoin will die is impossible to pinpoint, but the “steps” towards Bitcoin’s demise are clear as lightning.. (serendipitous pun)

The 5 Stages of Bitcoin’s Inevitable Death

Stage 1) Massive Bitcoin unloading sales – e.g. mt gox. This has to happen slowly enough so as not to totally destroy the price, and for a while the price may actually continue to climb, possibly a hell of a lot; but as more and more heavy holders start looking for the exit, the price will stagnate. You have to ask yourself, if Bitcoin is so promising in the future, why would anybody sell such large quantities?? Exactly, if the people that can move the price are getting out, that’s a really bad sign. It will be hard to know these large sales are happening because most of these trades will be OTC, but they will be visible on the Bitcoin blockchain in the form of increasing volume and higher fees, yet tellingly there’ll be no associated increase in price.

Stage 2) Uptick in negative Bitcoin propaganda – Bitcoin is centralized, mining ruins the environment, it’s slow, it’s expensive, LN is too complicated.. Look for these opinions starting to surface in the more mainstream media, particularly when juxtaposed against the positive attributes of the competing coins. Once the education campaign begins in earnest, you can be pretty sure the whales have made their escape from Bitcoin and are ready to sink the ship to draw attention to the new coins these miserable bastards have relocated to.

Stage 3) The Decoupling – As it is right now, top altcoins are married to Bitcoin, essentially all prices across top coins are locked together and their values move in nearly identical percentages, meaning 100% manipulation. There is zero reality to any prices you see. Why? Well, the whales that are heavily invested in Bitcoin, don’t want to see XRP jump 20% and start pulling away buyers of Bitcoin, so the whales ratchet up the price of Bitcoin to deter defections, and otherwise take the steam out of another coin’s rally. This can be heartbreaking for those of us invested in genuinely useful crypto, say XRP, and despite endless good news and partnerships, we still have to take whatever punishment BTC dishes out. Sure we have these massively inspiring price spikes, but then BTC just knocks us back down; like taking a shower and then putting your dirty underwear back on. Trust me, once the negative Bitcoin propaganda kicks in, the decoupling will follow.

Stage 4) The Flippening – The unimaginable happens, Bitcoin’s market cap is dethroned. It doesn’t even have to hold, nor does it have to be XRP that takes its crown, but at some point in the future, based upon the simple fact that Bitcoin’s dominance continues its neckbreaking descent into obsolescence, there will be a crossing of streams, and the notoriety of being #1, will slip from its grasp. It’s no longer the big coin in town, it’s no longer shiny and simple. It’s now unpopular, and for something that has absolutely nothing else going for it other than ‘being’ popular, panic ensues, people want out. The price drops. A lot. ALONE. Bitcoin Miners around the world shift to more profitable coins, better coins. Bitcoin mining difficulty drops radically. But this isn’t 2013, this is a much different world with orders of magnitude of mining power available, and hugely concentrated. Once the difficulty of Bitcoin mining drops enough, then we expose the unprotected underbelly of Bitcoin, and that is..

Stage 5) The Double-Spend – The unimaginable happens again. A double-spend attack is successfully executed, millions of bitcoins are stolen. Like an earthquake tearing apart the Earth’s crust, the once immutable, impeccable, glory-laden mantle of Bitcoin’s hegemony, will crack open and reveal its rotten antiquated core. Dials, and gears, lies and tears, and a hamster running his little ass off, will all see the light of day. From business as usual one minute, to total collapse the next. When, not if, Bitcoin’s turn to suffer the increasingly frequent PoW double-spend attack happens, it will be a digital nuclear holocaust as every man, woman, and troll run to coins like XRP that aren’t susceptible to double-spend attacks. Sure, there will always be some lingering hobbyists maintaining their cute little Bitcoin nodes so they can put it on their resume, but nobody will seriously put their money into an unsecurable coin.

It’s coming alright. My buddy Mikey J and I are sitting here with the popcorn, watching the Big Bitcoin Short unfold in stop-frame reality-max. Wish I had the fast-forward, because I do love a good, “I told you so”, but as the saying goes, all good things come with time if you’re in XRP.

Ripple Casinos - XRP Casinos

Ripple XRP is without doubt the number 1 cryptocurrency in the world.

With 50 central banks already on the books (including Bank of England, Bank of America, Thailand, Saudi Arabia etc), 200 global banks on board, a new bank added at least every week, Western Union, MoneyGram, Wallmart and many more companies and financial instutitions.

Backed by Google, Santander, The Rothschilds, etc.

Today’s Payment Rails Don’t Cut It

Ripple price news: Why is Ripple rising today? What is XRP price vs USD?

RIPPLE is just one of many cryptocurrencies currently enjoying a SURGE in price this morning as the market stabilises. So why are Ripple prices rising? What is the price of Ripple?

XRP is feeling a brief respite after feeling the burn from a week of negative.

The cryptocurrency market took a turn for the worst at the end of March, as reports showed almost $10 billion was wiped from the market cap in the first quarter.

Happily, prices are now stabilising, with Ripple posting a 5.01 percent growth to trade at $0.519529 per coin, as of 9:52am.

Ripple’s price is currently showing positive signs against the US dollar and BTC, with the outlook predicting it could correct even higher, so long as it is above $0.4800.

Why are Ripple prices rising?

Ripple, and many other cryptocurrencies were left sweating last week when prices consistently dropped into the red across the market.

News that Facebook was dropping its advertising of cryptocurrencies, widespread hacks and the continued albatross of central regulation hanged around the necks of crypto-tokens.

Bitcoin registered new lows, dipping perilously close to its so-called death cross, sending investors into a wary stress-pot.

The bearish trend continued into the Easter weekend, with little recovery in sight for many coins.
However, reports suggest the bulls are pushing back, bringing prices back up in time for the tax deadline in the United States.

The tax deadline requires Americans to pay capital gains tax, something that requires an influx of cash to cover.

Analysts predict a surge in sales and a boom in price through mid-April to facilitate this.

Ripple joins Hyperledger Consortium

News this week swirls around updates that Ripple has joined the Hyperledger Consortium, a collaborative blockchain project.

The Hyperledger project, formed in 2015, seeks to improve the performance of blockchain networks in order to help integrate the technology with businesses across the globe.

Since the first pool of partner organisations was announced in early 2016, Hyperledger has added more than 200 different partners to its consortium. Hyperledger’s announcement of the addition of Ripple to its ranks also included notice of 13 other companies and organisations which would join at the same time, too.

Litecoin Casinos – LTC Casinos

Litecoin is the controversial cryptocurrency which sits currently in the top 10 of cryptos by market cap. The controversy comes from the CEO of Litecon Charlie Lee selling his entire stock of LTC when it was at it’s all time high. He has also stated that soon he will walk away from Litecoin altogether. To make maters worse, they had a very high profile failure of the LitePay system which has left Litecoin being virtually useless as far as the real world goes. Be very careful when considering Litecoin casino payment options as Litecoin could end up dropping to zero as there are far better cryptos out there!

Litecoin Core v0.15.1 Release

We are pleased to release Litecoin Core 0.15.1 release. This is a new minor version release, including new features, various bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as updated translations. It is recommended for all users to upgrade to this version.

Network fork safety enhancements

A number of changes to the way Litecoin Core deals with peer connections and invalid blocks have been made, as a safety precaution against blockchain forks and misbehaving peers.

  • Unrequested blocks with less work than the minimum-chain-work are now no longer processed even if they have more work than the tip (a potential issue during IBD where the tip may have low-work). This prevents peers wasting the resources of a node.
  • Peers which provide a chain with less work than the minimum-chain-work during IBD will now be disconnected.
  • For a given outbound peer, we now check whether their best known block has at least as much work as our tip. If it doesn’t, and if we still haven’t heard about a block with sufficient work after a 20 minute timeout, then we send a single getheaders message, and wait 2 more minutes. If after two minutes their best known block has insufficient work, we disconnect that peer. We protect 4 of our outbound peers from being disconnected by this logic to prevent excessive network topology changes as a result of this algorithm, while still ensuring that we have a reasonable number of nodes not known to be on bogus chains.
  • Outbound (non-manual) peers that serve us block headers that are already known to be invalid (other than compact block announcements, because BIP 152 explicitly permits nodes to relay compact blocks before fully validating them) will now be disconnected.
  • If the chain tip has not been advanced for over 7.5 minutes, we now assume the tip may be stale and will try to connect to an additional outbound peer. A periodic check ensures that if this extra peer connection is in use, we will disconnect the peer that least recently announced a new block.
  • The set of all known invalid-themselves blocks (i.e. blocks which we attempted to connect but which were found to be invalid) are now tracked and used to check if new headers build on an invalid chain. This ensures that everything that descends from an invalid block is marked as such.

Minimum relay fee lowered

The minimum relay fee -minrelayfee has been lowered to 0.01 lites per kB (0.00001 LTC). This is to prepare for dropping the minimum transaction fee to 0.1 lites per kB (0.0001 LTC) in the next release.

Mempool replacement disabled by default

Mempool replacement --mempoolreplacement has been disabled by default.

Miner block size limiting deprecated

Though blockmaxweight has been preferred for limiting the size of blocks returned by getblocktemplate since 0.13.0, blockmaxsize remained as an option for those who wished to limit their block size directly. Using this option resulted in a few UI issues as well as non-optimal fee selection and ever-so-slightly worse performance, and has thus now been deprecated. Further, the blockmaxsize option is now used only to calculate an implied blockmaxweight, instead of limiting block size directly. Any miners who wish to limit their blocks by size, instead of by weight, will have to do so manually by removing transactions from their block template directly.

GUI settings backed up on reset

The GUI settings will now be written to guisettings.ini.bak in the data directory before wiping them when the -resetguisettings argument is used. This can be used to retroactively troubleshoot issues due to the GUI settings.

Duplicate wallets disallowed

Previously, it was possible to open the same wallet twice by manually copying the wallet file, causing issues when both were opened simultaneously. It is no longer possible to open copies of the same wallet.

Debug -minimumchainwork argument added

A hidden debug argument -minimumchainwork has been added to allow a custom minimum work value to be used when validating a chain.

Low-level RPC changes

  • The “currentblocksize” value in getmininginfo has been removed.
  • dumpwallet no longer allows overwriting files. This is a security measure as well as prevents dangerous user mistakes.
  • backupwallet will now fail when attempting to backup to source file, rather than destroying the wallet.
  • listsinceblock will now throw an error if an unknown blockhash argument value is passed, instead of returning a list of all wallet transactions since the genesis block. The behaviour is unchanged when an empty string is provided.

Download Binaries

To download, please visit the download page here. Alternatively, you can view the download folder here.

Dogecoin Overview and history

Dogecoin was created by programmer Billy Markus from Portland, Oregon, who hoped to create a fun cryptocurrency that could reach a broader demographic than Bitcoin. In addition, he wanted to distance it from the controversial history of other coins. At the same time, Jackson Palmer, a member of Adobe Systems’ marketing department in Sydney, was encouraged on Twitter by a student at Front Range Community College to make the idea a reality.

After receiving several mentions on Twitter, Palmer purchased the domain dogecoin.com and added a splash screen, which featured the coin’s logo and scattered Comic Sans text. Markus saw the site linked in an IRC chat room, and started efforts to create the currency after reaching out to Palmer. Markus based Dogecoin on an existing cryptocurrency, Luckycoin, which features a randomized reward that is received for mining a block, although this behavior was later changed to a static block reward in March 2014. In turn, Luckycoin is based on Litecoin, which also uses scrypt technology in its proof-of-work algorithm. The use of scrypt means that miners cannot use SHA-256 bitcoin mining equipment, and that dedicated FPGA and ASIC devices used for mining are complicated to create. Dogecoin was officially launched on December 6, 2013. The Dogecoin network was originally intended to produce 100 billion Dogecoins, but later, it was announced that the Dogecoin network would produce infinite Dogecoins.

On December 19, 2013, Dogecoin jumped nearly 300 percent in value in 72 hours, rising from US$0.00026 to $0.00095, with a volume of billions of Dogecoins per day. This growth occurred during a time when Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies were reeling from China’s decision to forbid Chinese banks from investing into the Bitcoin economy. Three days later, Dogecoin experienced its first major crash by dropping by 80% due to this event and due to large mining pools seizing opportunity in exploiting the very little computing power required at the time to mine Dogecoin.

On December 25, 2013, the first major theft of Dogecoin occurred when millions of coins were stolen during a hack on the online cryptocurrency wallet platform Dogewallet. The hacker gained access to the platform’s filesystem and modified its send/receive page to send any and all coins to a static address. This hacking incident spiked tweets about Dogecoin, making it the most mentioned altcoin on Twitter at the time, although it was in reference to a negative event. To help those who lost funds on Dogewallet after its breach, the Dogecoin community started an initiative named “SaveDogemas” to help donate coins to those who had them stolen. Approximately one month later, enough money was donated to cover all of the coins that were stolen. On January 2014, the trading volume of Dogecoin briefly surpassed that of Bitcoin and all other crypto-currencies combined, however, its market capitalization remained substantially behind that of Bitcoin. As of 25 January 2015, Dogecoin had a market capitalization of USD 13.5 million. April 2015 Jackson Palmer announced he is taking an “extended leave of absence” from the cryptocurrency community.

In January 2018, Dogecoin reached $2 billion market cap.

Dogecoin: A cryptocurrency joke that somehow turned real

Here’s how Dogecoin went from a joke equivalent of bitcoin to one of the world’s most valuable cryptocurrencies — before it all came crashing down.

June 22, 2014. Jackson Palmer, a self-identified “average geek,” is high in the stands at a Nascar race at Sonoma Raceway, California. He is an Australian man in his 20s. He has zero interest in racing. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine it would come to this.

He surveys the scene.

Below him: a tremendous crowd. The overwhelming blare of engines. Hurtling round at tremendous speeds: the #98 Moonrocket, a high-performance racing car. No different from the other cars on the track, except for one crucial detail.

On the bonnet of the car: a dog. A Shiba Inu, more commonly known as a “Shibe,” the dog made famous in the Doge meme that was popular in 2013.

Emblazoned on top: the word “DOGECOIN” in all caps. Below: “digital currency”.

Palmer describes the situation using words like “crazy,” “surreal” and “nuts.” He remembers this moment as a “reality check.” Dogecoin was a tweet, then it was a cryptocurrency worth money in the real world. Six months later, he watched as a joke that he’d made in passing somehow manifested itself into something tangible. A Dogecar in full flight.

It reminded Palmer how insane the world could be.

This is the story of Dogecoin, the joke that became too real for its own good.

The next big thing

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency, a form of digital money that, much like bitcoin, enables peer-to-peer transactions across a decentralized network. One important difference: bitcoin is the original blockchain proof-of-concept. Bitcoin is ground-breaking. Bitcoin is (some believe) world-changing tech with the potential to transform how money works in the 21st century.

Dogecoin is a digital coin with a picture of dog on it.

“It is a puzzle to me why Dogecoin is so highly valued,” says Adrian Lee, a senior finance lecturer at the University of Technology in Sydney.

At one point Dogecoin was worth $2 billion. It’s difficult to make sense of that.

“Dogecoin is an easily replicable coin,” Lee said. “I don’t know how it distinguishes itself from Bitcoin. I really think it has to do with being established early.

“And also the dog.”

If you’ve spent any time on the internet during the last decade, you’ve probably heard of the Doge meme. The iconic Shibe, his inner monologue expressed in comic sans with broken modifiers: “so scare,” “much noble,” “wow.”

At the peak of the meme’s popularity near the tail end of 2013, Palmer, an Australian marketer for one of the world’s largest tech companies, made a joke combining two of the internet’s most talked-about topics: cryptocurrency and Doge. It was a joke taking aim at the bizarre world of crypto and bitcoin’s multiple derivatives.

“Investing in Dogecoin,” Palmer tweeted, “pretty sure it’s the next big thing.”

The tweet got a lot of attention.

For laughs, Palmer decided to keep the joke going. He bought the Dogecoin.com domain and uploaded a photoshopped Shibe on a coin.

He left a note on the site: If you want to make Dogecoin a reality, get in touch.

The bell tolls

On the other side of the world, Billy Markus, a video game-obsessed software engineer at IBM, saw Palmer’s note. He’d just finished “Bells”, a project he was working on in his spare time.

Bells was a cryptocurrency named after money used in the Nintendo game Animal Crossing. It was 2013, the original crypto gold rush. Markus saw that bitcoin’s code was open-source. He decided to take a weekend and do something weird. He tried to create his own cryptocurrency for “sillies,” as he put it.

Bells was weird as hell. The major difference between Bells and regular cryptocurrencies was the rewards: they were completely random. If you mined bitcoin, using a decently powerful home computer, the rewards were consistent.

If you mined Bells, there was no telling whether the reward would be one Bell or 500 Bells.

And that’s because Bells wasn’t meant to be serious, it was a digital currency based on a video game about animals who live in a village and go fishing together.

The cryptocurrency community didn’t really get the joke.

“People were just trashing it,” laughs Markus, who quickly discovered there was very little crossover between crypto-obsessives and gamers.

“I was like alright, I retire,” says Markus. “I don’t need to do this anymore.”

But then Markus read Palmer’s message on Dogecoin.com. That was the moment Billy Markus decided to come out of crypto retirement.

Ctrl+F bitcoin

When Palmer didn’t immediately respond to Markus’ offer to help build Dogecoin, he started working on it anyway.

“Dogecoin,” says Markus, “from ‘that seems like it’s funny’ to actually doing it, took about three hours. It’s almost trivial to create a new cryptocurrency.”

It was a find-and-replace job.

Ctrl+F ‘Bitcoin,’ replace with ‘Dogecoin.’

Markus freely admits to finding large chunks of bitcoin’s source code completely incomprehensible, but knew enough to change a few core elements for Dogecoin. For example, Markus created 100 billion dogecoins (as opposed to bitcoin’s 21 million) and made them easier to mine. (Dogecoin is already close to being mined out, while bitcoin’s final coin will be mined in 2140.)

He changed the font (to comic sans of course) and changed every mention of the word ‘mine’ to ‘dig’ (because dogs don’t mine, they dig…).

And then, during his lunch break, Markus set Dogecoin live.

Moving at light speed

Premining: the act of gathering cryptocurrency before launching your coin into the public domain. Almost everyone serious about launching a cryptocurrency does this.

But Markus and Palmer didn’t premine any Dogecoin. Because they weren’t serious about launching a cryptocurrency.

“We thought it was this big joke that would die off,” laughs Palmer.

And according to Markus, Palmer wasn’t even sure how to mine a cryptocurrency.

Markus had a relatively powerful gaming PC, with two graphics cards, so he was officially the first person to mine Dogecoin. But given the the nature of mining (which gets increasingly difficult as the currency is mined) Billy’s computer was no longer powerful enough to mine Dogecoin after about five minutes. Markus split what he’d mined 50-50 with Palmer and that was that. Both got about $5,000 of Dogecoin.

And that’s all the Dogecoin either man would ever own.

In online crypto circles, Dogecoin became popular very quickly. Forum threads moved rapidly. The name Dogecoin echoed throughout dark corners of the internet.

But Reddit was almost certainly the main driver in Dogecoin’s rapid rise to crypto stardom. The Dogecoin subreddit exploded almost immediately, and with that explosion came the infrastructure any cryptocurrency needs if it is to become successful: mining pools, services.

“It was moving at light speed,” explains Markus. “Within minutes we were like, ‘Wow, this is way out of our control.”

But it was the Reddit “tipping bot” that drove Dogecoin into the stratosphere.

If a user posted something to the effect of, “hey ‘dogebot’ tip this person five dogecoin,” that Reddit user would automatically receive five Dogecoin. People were sending Dogecoin back and forth in a feel-good exercise that cost very little money in real-world terms.

“I liked it,” says Markus. “At the time, Dogecoin wasn’t worth anything, but getting five Dogecoin felt better than getting two cents.”

Reddit users were sharing Dogecoin back and forth constantly, which expanded the user base of Dogecoin and, as a result, increased its value as a cryptocurrency.

“Pretty much everyone who used Reddit had Dogecoin,” says Palmer. “I think that was key to its success.”

A force for good

January 2014. Jackson Palmer is already three drinks deep at a trivia night at his local pub in Sydney. His phone starts buzzing. It doesn’t stop buzzing.

Earlier that night, Palmer and the Dogecoin community had brainstormed a ridiculous (but completely brilliant) idea.

For the first time in a decade, Jamaica’s bobsled team had qualified for the Winter Olympics, but it didn’t have enough money to attend. As huge fans of the comedy “Cool Runnings,” Palmer and the Dogecoin crew decided to do something about it.

They chucked up a Dogecoin address onto the subreddit and asked for donations. Hours later they’d raised $25,000.

That’s when Palmer’s phone started vibrating off the hook.

“I was like, ‘Quick we need to get back to our computers,'” laughs Palmer.

So Palmer and friends stumbled home from the pub, picked up a six-pack of beer for good measure and set about figuring out how to send 26 million Dogecoins to the Jamaican bobsled team.

It was a gesture that symbolized the early spirit of Dogecoin.

In Markus’ words, they were allergic to the word “invest.” Both Palmer and Markus donated all their Dogecoin to these massive charity initiatives. They helped build water wells in Kenya and raised money to help train assistance dogs for autistic children.

“We wanted to create something that was a force for good,” explains Palmer.

But as the community grew, the initial spirit in which Dogecoin was launched was difficult to preserve. People started to care about the price of Dogecoin. They were literally and figuratively invested in it.

And that terrified Markus.

“I don’t mind if someone spends ten bucks and gets some Dogecoin,” says Markus. “It’s like buying a movie ticket or something, that’s fun.

“But when someone puts $20,000 in? That makes me really, really uncomfortable.”

Markus began clashing with members of the community. For him, Dogecoin was still crypto “for sillies,” but here it was ballooning into a currency people were trading for real money. In his view Dogecoin was a silly thing that should remain silly. Many in the community disagreed.

Eventually he decided enough was enough.

“I was like, “Okay, this is dumb. I don’t want to be the leader of a cult.””

Markus decided to bail on Dogecoin.

Moolah

It was Moolah that pushed Dogecoin to the brink.

Palmer describes it as “PayPal for cryptocurrency.” From the very beginning, Palmer was cynical.

Run by a British man calling himself Alex Green, Moolah was a cryptocurrency exchange designed to help people buy and sell Dogecoin. They infiltrated the Dogecoin community with startling efficiency.

Alex Green began by doling out Dogecoin in exchange for upvotes on the Dogecoin subreddit. He also donated generously to charitable causes the community were involved in, like $2,500 to a cancer charity, or $3,000 to help get the Dogecoin Nascar vehicle on the track.

The community loved it. Soon Moolah began hiring people from the Dogecoin community for key positions in the company.

“Alex Green started building his business on top of Dogecoin,” says Palmer.

Markus, watching from afar, wasn’t a fan.

Despite removing himself from the day-to-day workings of Dogecoin, Markus attended a Dogecoin convention, organized in part by Palmer. He wanted to catch up with some of the old gang. By chance, he ran into representatives from Moolah, who were at the bar guzzling Cristal at $200 a bottle. They poured a glass for Markus.

“I was really uncomfortable,” remembers Markus. “I said, ‘whatever’s going on here I just don’t want any part of it.'”

“I just passed the glass to someone else.”

Many key figures in the Dogecoin community shared Markus’ suspicions, particularly Palmer, who was wary of Moolah from the beginning. But when concerns were raised they were mostly shouted down by a community that enjoyed the free currency being sent their way.

Later Moolah began soliciting the Dogecoin community for investment dollars and plenty donated Dogecoin to the cause. Why not? Moolah had been generous in the past. It made sense to repay the favor.

Moolah received over $300,000 from the Dogecoin community, across three separate rounds of investment.

And then it all came crashing down.

Months later, October 2014, Moolah went completely bankrupt. The Dogecoin community would end up losing every single cent they’d invested.

The situation got worse. An ex-girlfriend of Green got in contact with Palmer and other members of the Dogecoin community. She revealed that Green was actually Ryan Kennedy, who was notorious in the UK anime community for running companies terrifyingly similar to Moolah.

Suddenly the UK police were involved. After a three-year investigation, Kennedy faces multiple charges of fraud and money laundering. At a preliminary hearing in Bristol Crown Court on September 2017 he denied all charges. A request for comment was sent to Kennedy’s Defence Lawyer, but we’ve yet to receive a response.

His trial is scheduled for September 2018.

But Kennedy had to answer to more serious, disturbing crimes. In May 2016, he was tried and convicted on three counts of rape with three separate women. According to press reports he smiled as he was being led from court.

“Ryan Kennedy convinced his victims they had no choice but to do as they were told,” said senior prosecutor Ben Samples. “He was emotionally, sexually and physically abusive, putting his needs above all else.”

Ryan Kennedy is currently serving an 11-year sentence in a UK prison.

Remember this moment

In the months after Moolah’s bankruptcy, Palmer struggled. He distanced himself from Dogecoin. From the community. From cryptocurrency as a whole.

“The energy I was putting into it wasn’t helping me from a mental health perspective,” he explains.

Like Markus, Palmer decided to bail on Dogecoin.

Palmer has re-emerged on the cryptocurrency scene. He now runs his own YouTube channel. He has no interest in launching another cryptocurrency and has little to do with Dogecoin. He calls himself a crypto skeptic. “Cryptocurrency is a solution in search of a problem,” he says.

What problem did Dogecoin solve?

“I don’t think it solves anything,” he says. “If anything, it exists as an educational tool. It’s a reminder that we can’t take this stuff seriously.

“I hope people see Dogecoin and say, I’m not going to put all my money into this. Because right now there’s a dog on a coin and it’s worth half a billion dollars.”

Outside of the occasional donation, neither Palmer or Markus owns any significant amount of Dogecoin.

Back in January 2014, Markus posted a message on the Dogecoin subreddit; an ode to the community and what it had achieved. One year later, in the wake of the Moolah disaster, it had been reposted. An attempt to recapture the spirit in which Dogecoin had been founded.

It was a timely reminder of what had been lost.

“I have no way of knowing how transient this all may be,” Markus wrote of Dogecoin, two months after creating it.

He wrote about how proud he was — of the community, of the money they’d raised for various good causes. He thanked everyone for the incredible amount of work they’d put in.

“I would like everyone to remember this moment,” he said. “My hope is that Dogecoin will always be remembered fondly.”

Bitcoin Cash Casinos – BCH Casinos – BCHSV & BCHABC

The best Bitcoin Cash casinos & BCH casinos

Following the fork of BCH into BCHSV and BCHABC we can no longer recommend any Bitcoin Cash casinos due to the fact both forks are now fully centralised, controlled by a single mining group each and likely to crash to zero in the near future.

The best Cryptocurrency casinos

Over the past few weeks, the bitcoin cash (BCH) community and developers have been discussing ‘zero-confirmation’ or ‘instant transactions.’ Many BCH supporters believe if the concept was broadly accepted, payments and transaction speed would be extremely fast bringing a significant competitive edge to the BCH network.

The Quest for Instant Transactions

The zero confirmation discussion has been talked about for quite some time in the cryptocurrency space and well before bitcoin cash existed. In the early days, there were many heated debates on whether or not accepting bitcoin transactions without a miner confirmation was safe. Zero confirmation transactions are broadcasted throughout the network’s nodes but have not been etched into the blockchain. A confirmation or blockchain record doesn’t happen until the miner mines a block which contains the specific transaction. The instant transaction topic is controversial because some believe the idea opens merchants up to double spend attacks. A double spend consists of spending the same transacted bitcoin twice before the miner confirms the transaction’s first confirmation.

On the Bitcoin Core (BTC) blockchain the average time is traditionally ten minutes, but when blocks are full that time can be extended to days. Even the bitcoin cash chain has a wait time of ten minutes and blocks are never full. For this reason, lots of BCH supporters believe bitcoin cash is a perfect network to start the widespread use of zero-confirmation transactions.

Bitcoin Cash Moves Towards 0-Confirmation Adoption

There are three fundamental reasons why individuals think BCH is the perfect candidate for zero-confirmation transactions. The first is the fact that BCH has removed Replace-by-Fee (RBF), a contentious piece of code that allows an unconfirmed transaction to be replaced by one that’s similar but with a higher fee. Secondly, there is plenty of room for transactions even with low fees, and, lastly, since the BCH hard fork this past November, confirmation times are always consistent.

About four years ago before bitcoin cash was even born, Gavin Andresen and Tom Harding wrote some code that created a relay for the BTC network that would prevent double spend attacks. This patch would allow the use of zero-confirmations in a much safer manner. The code was merged into the Bitcoin Core software but was later removed by Core developers. Core developers who removed Andresen and Harding’s patch from the equation then started claiming that zero-confirmation transactions were not safe. The Bitcoin Cash community believes that zero-confirmation transactions are reliable and secure.

Moreover, BCH-focused businesses and infrastructure providers have started putting zero confirmation acceptance to the test by allowing customers to transact that way. The firm Cryptonize.it offered a challenge to anyone willing to double spend on a $1,000 transaction. A person attempted it in the end and lost $2,000 worth of BCH in the end. Just recently the Chinese exchange Bitasia started allowing zero confirmation BCH deposits as well.

Safe, Fast and Reliable

Additionally, Tom Harding recently discussed the concept of zero confirmation transactions during his speech at the Satoshi’s Vision Conference in Tokyo. Harding’s discussion called ‘Native Respend Resistance’ discussed how the network could prevent double spends and enable the network to allow instant payments before they are verified by a miner. Harding says zero-confirms work on the BCH chain but he doesn’t know how many people are trying to double spend. Harding emphasizes the BCH community needs to be vigilant. The XT developer details how he experimented with these types of transactions, and explains his opinion of the maximum advisable value for a zero-confirmation transaction.

“That should be decided by the merchants themselves but generally the value should be much less than the cost to attack it,” Harding states during the end of his talk.

Right now the subject of instant BCH transactions is being discussed widely among the community. A few businesses are trialing the idea but the concept is not yet widely adopted. Some believe the next BCH upgrade will address zero confirmation transactions and possibly add some more preventive measures against double spending.
