From Single Key to Sophisticated Computation: The Evolution of Crypto Exchange Custody

When the first cryptocurrency exchanges sprung up in late 2010, multisig wallets had yet to be invented. As a result, a single private key was commonly used to control all customer funds. Today, multisig has been complemented by sophisticated solutions such as Unbound Tech’s CASP, which uses secure multi-party computation. Despite these innovations, many exchanges have been slow to adapt, and are still using outdated tools to control billions of dollars of customer funds.

Gox wallets in 2011, purely to show that he could, it demonstrated the dangers of single key custody. Having one individual in charge of thousands of customers’ assets was a recipe for disaster. On that occasion, the […]

Iranian General Prefers Using Bitcoin to Bypass US Sanctions

Using cryptocurrencies is often associated with dubious and illegal activities. In Iran, one general advocates for using Bitcoin, as it helps evade government sanctions. It is uncanny how the public perception of cryptocurrencies continues to shift. Bypassing Sanctions With Bitcoin Advocating the use of Bitcoin and altcoins to evade government sanctions may be a bridge too far. Iranian general Saeed Muhammed is convinced that this is the right path to follow.  In his opinion, Iran should look to cryptocurrencies to boost international investments. While some may see this as a bullish sign for Bitcoin, this approach also poses a few problems. The public nature of Bitcoin’s blockchain would immediately flag transactions one the blockchain analysis firms go to work.  Creating a native digital currency for the country doesn’t appear to be an option worth exploring right now. Whether these comments […]

Government to Airdrop $9 Billion in Free Money to 7 Million Hong Kong Residents

The government of Hong Kong has decided to airdrop about $9 billion in free money to an estimated 7 million residents in the troubled Chinese territory. From a global perspective, this can be seen as a desperate move to stimulate the local economy while the coronavirus outbreak is hitting markets hard all around the world. At the same time, the move can also be seen as part of the government’s efforts to stop the persistent protests in the city.

It’s in Bad Shape, but BTC Still Has Loyal Fans like Robert Herjavec

No matter how badly bitcoin seems to do, the cryptocurrency always has a long list of loyal followers that will never turn away from it. One such follower is Robert Herjavec, founder and CEO of the Herjavec Group. Herjavec Loves Him Some BTC Recently, Herjavec commented that bitcoin isn’t doing too well because of things like the coronavirus, which is spreading fear across the globe. However, he says that one of the currency’s biggest problems is that companies haven’t adapted enough to its properties and capabilities. He says that electronic payments, for example, are the way of the future, but that not enough businesses are working towards that future and still rely too heavily on fiat and methods of the past. He explains: I’m a big believer in bitcoin-based electronic payments in the future, but I think we’re a long […]

Over $2.7 million in Bitcoin Cash has Been “Retrieved” by Miners Without Permission

When the Bitcoin Cash fork was introduced, not everyone redeemed those coins. One mining group has been able to sweep addresses for unclaimed BCH, currently amassing to over 9,000. The launch of Bitcoin Cash has been problematic for a wide variety of reasons. Sweeping Bitcoin Cash Without Permission Particularly the address format similarities –  resolved later on – caused a lot of dismay and confusion.  A lot of users sent coins to the right address, but the funds ended up on the wrong chain. Coinmetrics data confirms how nearly 9,000 BCH have now been swept by one miner, or a group of miners. Those 9,000 BCH are worth over $2.7 million at today’s prices. It is evident that this raises a lot of questions, for many different reasons. First of all, one has to wonder why no one noticed this […]

How Much $100 of Bitcoin Could Be Worth When the Last Coin is Mined

Everybody knows that one day Bitcoin mining will eventually cease, and the last coin will be mined. The date for this is expected to be around the year 2140. So what could an investment of $100 now be worth in 120 years time?  Bitcoin to the Moon To estimate the price of Bitcoin well into the future we need to take a look at growth models for the cryptocurrency. The two most well-known are Parabolic Trav’s Parabolic super trend price growth model, and Plan B’s Stock to Flow price model (S2F). We’ll also have to take into account that if hyperbitcoinization does occur, and Bitcoin becomes global money used by everyone, and no other kind of currency exists at all, there are still limits to Bitcoin’s price growth. Hal Finney predicted Bitcoin to have a price of 10 million per […]

We Shouldn’t Want Buffett to Invest in BTC Right Now

Yesterday, we reported that Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett was again bashing bitcoin, and for not taking it seriously, he’s potentially missed out on some big profits. We Shouldn’t Want the Presence of Buffett in Crypto Now, one source claims that if Warren Buffett were to ever change his mind about the world’s number one cryptocurrency by market cap and become a serious investor, that might be a sign that it’s time to sell one’s stash. It’s interesting because Buffett recently sat down to lunch with Justin Sun, the CEO of TRON – one of the world’s top altcoins. Sun gifted him a phone with an entire bitcoin on it and swore to his followers and fans that he would work his tail off trying to make Buffett a believer. Buffett commented that he enjoyed his time with Sun, and […]

How Much Bitcoin You’d Get If All 21 Million Were Distributed Worldwide

It is not a secret that Bitcoin is one of the scarcest assets out there. But have you wondered how rare the largest cryptocurrency really is? There Is So Much Room for Bitcoin Adoption Imagine if a new global regime would rise out of nowhere to rule the world through a UN-like body and decided that everyone should be equal. More than that, this new body would endorse Bitcoin as a legitimate currency and would distribute it to everyone. While this defies Bitcoin’s decentralized nature, how much BTC would each individual get anyway? Well, the world’s population is almost 7.8 billion according to Worldometer, and Bitcoin’s current supply is 18,240,387. That means that each person would end up with 0.00233851 BTC or 233,851 satoshis. Considering today’s BTC price at around $8,845, that amount would be worth about $20. Not that […]

Jeff Dorman: Bitcoin Is Not a Safe Haven

Gosh darn it, bitcoin! You were doing so well and now you’ve decided to go and disappoint everyone… Again! Bitcoin Takes Another Nasty Tumble At the time of writing, the number one cryptocurrency in the world by market cap has fallen to just a little over $8,800. This is about $500 less than where it was trading yesterday, and about $1,600 from where the currency was trading roughly two weeks ago. The fears of the coronavirus are spreading almost as fast as the disease itself. People are stocking up on canned food and water as a means of protecting themselves should things get ugly. If this turns into a worldwide pandemic to the point that people cannot leave their homes or need to stay indoors as things get straightened out, they want to make sure they have what they need […]

4 Things Holding Back XRP Price Right Now

Ripple’s XRP token had been performing very well in 2020, reaching as high as $0.34 in mid-February, before pulling back to just under $0.30. Unfortunately, it wasn’t immune to the losses which have hit virtually the entire crypto-space this week. So what could be holding it back from recovering now? Ripple Case Not Dismissed A federal judge in California yesterday ruled that the class action lawsuit being pursued against Ripple could not be dismissed. A group of investors are suing the company, claiming that they lost money selling XRP after being ‘tricked’ by Ripple’s promotional statements. The judge did dismiss certain claims, but Ripple had requested that the case be thrown out entirely, due to it being filed over five years after XRP was first offered in 2013. The investors will now get a chance to take Ripple to court […]

UK’s FCA Suspends Epayments Service – Over £100M Frozen and Alleged Onecoin Connection

Epayments, one of the largest payment providers in the U.K., has halted operations after the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) suspended the company for “weaknesses” related to its anti-money-laundering (AML) process. Since Epayments shut down on February 11, customers have been complaining because they cannot access their money. Reports also detail that if the firm becomes insolvent, Epayments clients won’t be protected by any type of FCA-regulated insurance fund. Additionally, a non-executive director who resigned last week was once the head of cards and payments at Locke Lord, a law firm that represented Onecoin’s ‘cryptoqueen’ Ruja Ignatova.

IOTA Outage Has Already Outlasted Several Celebrity Marriages

IOTA has had things pretty rough lately with the network shut down for 15 days now.

There’s no middle ground as far as it’s concerned. Its Tangle technology is either a brilliant breakthrough that will provide the infrastructure solution for the Internet of Things–or a complete disaster waiting to happen. Take your pick. After recovering from some teething trouble in its early days, IOTA has been gaining respect, forging relationships, and working on smart cities. But, beyond an announcement of a partnership with Jaguar Landrover, it hasn’t commanded all that much press. Until lately when the project suddenly became besieged by […]

Ethereum Price Set for More Downside, Is $200 Next?

Ethereum price may be affected by the overall downturn in altcoins right now, as the market flashes red once again. The asset already slid from its recent highs above $270, and may push back to the $200 range. Ethereum Price Turns Down Sharply, Further Correction Possible For a brief stint, ETH became one of the most active assets, and also the basis for rallies in smaller altcoins. ETH is the second most liquid asset after BTC, and saw a significant rise in trading activity in the first months of 2020. But after weeks of rallying, Ethereum price also shows signs of fatigue. Predictions now envision a temporary dip across the board, with ETH not being an exception. Similar idea on the USD pairing. I’m not long-term bearish on crypto by any means but a few weeks of pullbacks/consolidation wouldn’t be […]

These Two Cryptos Are Leading the Recovery as $10 Billion Returns

As Bitcoin continues to plummet dragging most major cryptoassets with it, two cryptos are leading the recovery. Tezos and Link have shot up today as $10bn returns to the cryptocurrency market cap. Tezos and Link Show Remarkable Recovery The end of the month is fast approaching with Bitcoin on track to erase all gains made in February. After a couple of major breakouts convincing traders that the bull market was back ahead of the halving, BTC has been sharply declining to fall as low as $8580 on Feb 27. The story is quite different for Tezos (XTZ) and Link (LINK). These two cryptos are among those that have shown the most gains from the bullish start to 2020. XTZ skyrocketed by almost 220%, while LINK also soared over 185%. However, both cryptocurrencies experienced severe drops over the past week. Just […]

Domen Zavrl: What Is Cryptography?

Cryptography is a field of information security that is often misunderstood. Although the fundamental principles of algorithms generally stay the same, as infections and attacks evolve so too must these algorithms to maintain the security of confidential information. Cryptography incorporates three key principles: encryption, integrity, and authentication. Encryption To encrypt a file data is converted into an unreadable form, protecting its privacy during storage, transfer and reception. Encrypted data is decrypted via a process known as ‘decryption’. In essence, encryption and decryption require a special key, so that while data appears scrambled, both the sender and the desired recipient can still read and understand it. Integrity Cryptography assures message integrity, meaning that messages are accurately communicated and not altered or intercepted en route from the sender to the recipient. This is often achieved by hashing data, or cryptographically mapping out […]

How Millennials Will Inherit Trillions And Buy Bitcoin

There is a lot of antipathy and mistrust over bitcoin from the current baby boomer generation which largely doesn’t understand the technology. Millennials on the other hand have been brought up with tech and they’re about to inherit trillions. A Millennial Bitcoin Boom? According to statistics an estimated $60 trillion in wealth will be passed down from boomers to millennials over the next 30 years. Boomers are defined as being born between 1946 and 1964 so an estimated 10,000 of them turn 65 every day. Ikigai Fund manager Travis Kling posed the obvious question: 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65 every day. An estimated $60tn of wealth will be passed down from Boomers over the next 30 years. Where. Do.

EOS Price Analysis: Bears Are Back In Control, Sell Rallies?

EOS price started a major decline from the $4.429 swing high against the US Dollar. The price broke many key supports near the $4.000 and $3.800 levels. There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $3.880 on the 4-hours chart of the EOS/USD pair (data feed from Coinbase). The pair could correct higher, but the bears are likely to remain active near $3.800. EOS price is down more than 10% and it broke the key $3.800 support against the US Dollar, similar to bitcoin. It seems like the bears are back in action and the price could extend its decline. EOS Price Analysis This past, EOS failed to climb above the $4.500 resistance area against the US Dollar. As a result, there was a sharp bearish reaction below the $4.000 support level and the 55 simple moving […]

Growth Addicted Asian Nations Hand Out Free Cash as Economies Crash

Nations across Asia are scrambling to prop up their deteriorating economies as the Coronavirus continues to spread. Some are so obsessed with growth that they are handing out free cash to citizens.

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak has added to Hong Kong’s woes as the country plunges into recession. According to reports the government has unveiled a budget packed with giveaways which include a one-time cash handout to its citizens. One of the main features of the annual budget announced this week is a payment of HK$10,000 (approx. US$1,280) to each permanent resident of the city aged 18 or older.
