Crypto Collectibles Are Worthless Without a Website

Crypto collectibles are big business right now. Crypto Kitties just raised $12.5 million in venture capital, and lookalike sites are springing up everywhere trying to cash in on the craze for non-fungible digital assets. For all their innovation, these ‘decentralized’ projects have an achilles heel: without a website, the digital assets are worthless, as the collapse of Crypto Celebs and similar platforms shows.

The Atlantis Blue Project Turns to Stellar to Help Restore the Damaged Larimar Trade

While the Larimar trade has recently been corrupted by malicious actors due to the popularity of the gemstone, the Atlantis Blue Project seeks to use Stellar’s blockchain to thwart this activity and restore its balance. The Blue Beauty Larimar is a rare gemstone found in the province of Barahona of the Dominican Republic. The stone is coveted by many due to its rumored healing powers, ability to increase one’s communication skills, and desirability as a stone used in fine jewelry. Also known as the Atlantis Stone, Larimar’s blue color comes from its substitution of copper for calcium in its formation. In the last two years alone, demand for Larimar has tripled, and along with this popularity came plenty of malicious actors trying to game the system. Illegal trading of the mineral has begun to proliferate internationally, and the number of […]

How to Secure Decentralized Projects with Hardware Enclaves?

An efficient security solution is mandatory to protect blockchain-based decentralized projects that run on untrusted nodes. iExec will present a solution mixing software and hardware encryption for its decentralized cloud at IBM Think in Las Vegas (19-22 March). Securely Running Applications on Untrusted Nodes A new security trend consists of providing a hardware enclave to run applications in an inaccessible part of the CPU. Even the owner of the CPU isn’t able to access the data processed inside of this enclave. With this cutting-edge technology, it is possible to run applications on a decentralized fashion even on untrusted nodes, because applications are no longer under the control of the decentralized node, but rather under the control of the initial user. Currently available in early access, Data Guard on IBM Cloud, powered by Fortanix Runtime Encryption platform, uses Intel® SGX technology […]

Israel Securities Authority Declares Bitcoin Is Not a Security

There are quite a few opinions on whether or not Bitcoin is a legal asset. In Israel, the decision was pretty easy to make. The country’s Securities Authority has deemed Bitcoin not a security.

Israel’s Securities Authority Rules on Bitcoin Bitcoin has been receiving a ton of regulatory scrutiny over the past few months. Every country in the world is seemingly poised to introduce some form of regulation. Creating a legal definition for a form of money that has never existed before is pretty difficult, although it remains to be seen how countries will tackle this issue moving forward. Over in Israel, the decision was made that Bitcoin used only for consumption cannot be labeled a security. This verdict not only applies to Bitcoin, […]

The NSA Spied on Bitcoin Users – Leaked Documents by Snowden Reveal

Your Bitcoin transactions are being actively monitored by the National Security Agency (NSA) according to classified documents that were released by Edward Snowden. The documents reveal how the NSA has made monitoring of cryptocurrency use a priority, especially Bitcoin. Device identifiers, internet activity and user passwords are just a few of the important private pieces of information the agency has been collecting over the years. Covert Program The NSA achieved this major breach of privacy through covert programs that harvested, analyzed and processed global internet traffic in massive scale.

Bitcoin Price Watch: A $300 Drop is in the Books

Bitcoin’s price incurred a slight fall during today’s early morning hours. After trading at just under $9,000 for most of yesterday, bitcoin is down to around $8,600 at press time. There appear to be several reasons for the drop. The first comes by way of the U.K. Authorities are laying out plans to implement a task force designed to assist in governing cryptocurrency usage to better understand the risks involved. The group will likely involve the Bank of England, the Financial Conduct Authority and the treasury. For the most part, the U.K. has remained primarily skeptical of digital assets. While accepting the benefits of its backing technology, the assets themselves seem to remain foolhardy investments in regulators’ eyes. Current governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney, for example, has long stood against trading cryptocurrencies and altcoins, saying they give […]

Typing Errors in Ethereum Transaction Addresses Caused Losses of Over 12,600 Ether

There is nothing worse than losing funds stored in your crypto wallet. It is pretty obvious that this situation has been a big problem for most users at some point in their lives.

Losing Ether due to Typos There are a lot of things that can go wrong when completing cryptocurrency transactions. For instance, one could enter a completely wrong address due to copying it incorrectly, a QR code could give an error when trying to send money, or one could simply type an address incorrectly. In the latter case, one’s money will be lost forever, as the transaction is often broadcast to an address that doesn’t even exist. Recovering such a transfer is pretty much impossible these days.
