As the market is seemingly rather bearish on Bitcoin, it is not surprising to see alternative cryptocurrencies make a big impact. Bitcoin Gold, the hard fork few people seemingly cared about two weeks ago, has now seen an intriguing value increase. More specifically, the Bitcoin Gold price has risen all the way to $484. An interesting development, although it remains to be seen if this hard fork will ever gain any major traction other than for speculative purposes. Bitcoin Gold Price Surpasses $440 When the Bitcoin Gold futures markets were opened to the public, it seemed this altcoin would easily surpass a value of $450. When the actual coins became available, the altcoin was off to a good start, although it quickly became evident there would be a fair amount of sell pressure to contend with. This became even more […]

Bitcoin.com owner and Bitcoin Cash (BCash) proponent Roger Ver has described Coinbase’s insider trading scandal as a “non-crime.” Ver: Advance Trading Would Have Been Better Speaking in a new interview with CNBC, which this week also came under scrutiny for its sudden BCash support, Ver implied it was up to users to “be careful” when using cryptocurrency exchanges. “I think insider trading is a non-crime… If a bunch of people had traded in advance, then the price wouldn’t have been nearly as volatile,” he told hosts including pro-Bitcoin Brian Kelly. Ver’s previous appearance on the network ignited a storm on social media, with figures such as Max Keiser opposing the network’s choice of guest for mainstream viewers. Keiser described BCash as “borderline fraud” and CNBC as “fake news.” Responding to Kelly’s query as to whether BCash’s increased popularity would cause […]

The EtherDelta cryptocurrency exchange recently sent out urgent tweets, telling users not to open the site as it had been hacked.

Cryptocurrency exchanges have become a prime target for thieves, and EtherDelta is the latest victim as they’ve become the target of an attack. Dear users, we have reason to believe that there had been […]

Almost every single crypto-currency has seen massive gains in the past few months, Ethereum included. But with the recent news about Bitcoin Cash being listed on Coinbase, much uncertainty has been thrown into the market.

They may be a girl’s best friend, but diamond dealers and investors are going to love CEDEX, the first certified diamond exchange to be built using blockchain technology. The diamond market has an estimated turnover of $80 billion per year, yet investor demand accounts for only 5% of that – the rest is consumer demand from the jewelry industry. Historically, diamonds have been a consistent store of value, just like gold and other precious metals, so why aren’t more investors looking at diamonds as an investment vehicle? Despite their total market value, diamonds are not considered a financial asset class and, as such, there is no established market for their trade, unlike traditional commodities. CEDEX aims to change all of that with the launch of the first certified blockchain-based exchange that will tokenize and transform diamonds into a tradeable asset. […]

With digital currencies such as Bitcoin becoming household names due to their astronomic rise in value and public proliferation, the technology that gives the famous cryptocurrency its trademark decentralized encryption, accountability and global scale is also entering the limelight.
