Bitcoin Gold is a fork, or spin-off, of the original cryptocurrency, bitcoin. It shares much of the same code and works in a similar way to bitcoin, with Bitcoin Gold miners contributing computational power to process new transactions. That also means it faces the same vulnerabilities as bitcoin, but without the protections that come from the large, dispersed group of people and organizations whose computers are powering the bitcoin blockchain. In recent days the nightmare scenario for any cryptocurrency is playing out for Bitcoin Gold, as an attacker has taken control of its blockchain and proceeded to defraud cryptocurrency exchanges. All the Bitcoin Gold in circulation is valued at $786 million, according to data provider Coinmarketcap. Blockchains are designed to be decentralized but when an individual or group acting in concert controls the majority of a blockchain’s processing power, they can tamper with transactions and pave the way for fraud. This is known as a 51% attack. The possibility of a 51% attack has been one of the concerns institutions such as banks and tech companies have had over the years about using the blockchain for transactions; some have worried that the Chinese government could at some point endeavor to do that, ordering all of the Chinese bitcoin miners to act in concert. It’s unlikely for bitcoin, but for smaller cryptocurrencies, 51% attacks are a concern, one dramatized on a recent episode of HBO’s series Silicon Valley. The news of this most likely could’ve contributed to the total market cap evaluation decreasing. . . . *This is not financial advice, just my thought* *Credit: qz . . . #BTC #ETH #BCH #Ethereum #Bitcoin #Cryptolife #cryptocrazies #Ledger #TomLee #DigitalCoin #Digitialcurrency #tron #XRB #XRP #Google #Cryptocurrency #Crypto #like #Ripple #Insta #gram #google #Googleads #CryptoAds #Follow . #Neo #Stellar #Raiblocks #Cardano #Cryptolife

Actor and noted tech investor Ashton Kutcher surprised Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday with a large donation to the talk show host's wildlife charity on behalf of cryptocurrency startup Ripple. The twist? The $4 million that Kutcher and his business partner, Guy Oseary, presented to The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund comes in the form of Ripple's XRP coin — currently third most-valuable cryptocurrency on the market, behind Bitcoin and Ethereum. Kutcher surprised DeGeneres with the donation, on behalf of Ripple, live on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on NBC. This is good news for crypto since such a big donation was made in the form of digital cash. This may help to rise the market evaluation in the future. . . . *This is not financial advice, just my thought* *Credit: CNBC . . . #BTC #ETH #BCH #Ethereum #Bitcoin #Cryptolife #cryptocrazies #Ledger #TomLee #DigitalCoin #Digitialcurrency #tron #XRB #XRP #Google #Cryptocurrency #Crypto #like #Ripple #Insta #gram #google #Googleads #CryptoAds #Follow . #Neo #Stellar #Raiblocks #Cardano #Cryptolife #ellen

Over the past 24 hours, the valuation of the cryptocurrency market has dropped from $390 to $373 billion, by more than $17 billion. The bitcoin price dipped below $8,300 and the value of Ether, the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum network, dropped to $690. The recent correction of the cryptocurrency market and the short-term decline in the price of bitcoin, Ethereum, and other major cryptocurrencies and tokens can be mainly attributed to three major factors: Bitfinex taxation policy, scandal of South Korea’s two largest cryptocurrency exchanges UPbit and Bithumb, and the initial sell-off of the Mt. Gox trustee’s bitcoin funds.

Bear markets are when millionaires are made. Pro-Tip: Find GREAT projects like NANO that are extremely undervalued and buy them while they’re cheap. Buying anything when daily RSI is oversold is a no-brainer. Doubling my position at these prices. #nano #nanocurrency #nanocrypto #raiblocks #xrb #bitcoin #btc #ethereum #ripple #litecoin #monero #xrp #crypto #cryptocurrency #investor #trader #cryptotrader #entrepreneur #blockchain

Iran and Russia could turn to cryptocurrency as a solution to evade Western financial sanctions and reduce their dependence on the US dollar. Iran has been struck by a monetary crisis in recent months after its fiat currency, the rial, plunged to historic lows against the US dollar leading up to US president Trump formally withdrawing from the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran. Russia has also seen international sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union and a number of other countries in recent years following Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine. In an effort to circumvent US-dollar-based commerce and escape their dependence on the global interbank system operated by SWIFT, Tehran is suggesting cryptocurrency as a solution in high-level discussions with Moscow, according to a report by Russian publication RBC citing major news agency Interfax. Iran’s Parliamentary Commission of Economic Affairs has already “obliged the Central Bank of Iran to start developing proposals for the use of cryptocurrency”, revealed the authority’s chief Mohammad Reza Pourebrahimi. “Over the past year or two, the use of cryptocurrency has become an important issue,” the official reportedly said. “This is one of the good ways to bypass the use of the dollar, as well as the replacement of the SWIFT system,” he added. The official made the revelation following a Moscow meeting with Dmitry Mezentsev, head of Russia’s Federation Council Committee on Economic Policy. Notably, Pourebrahimi confirmed that he had already held discussions with the Russian Parliament’s Committee on Economic Policy with the report suggesting that Iran ‘has established cooperation with Russia’ in their cryptocurrency pact. . . . *This is not financial advice, just my thought* *Credit: CCN . . . #BTC #ETH #BCH #Ethereum #Bitcoin #Cryptolife #cryptocrazies #Ledger #TomLee #DigitalCoin #Digitialcurrency #tron #XRB #XRP #Google #Cryptocurrency #Crypto #like #Ripple #Insta #gram #google #Googleads #CryptoAds #Follow . #Neo #Stellar #Raiblocks #Cardano #Cryptolife

A group of academics, philanthropists and investors are working together to literally launch an independent floating island by 2020. This project was initially run as a pilot in partnership with the French Polynesian government, and will contain 300 homes and use cryptocurrency to power its economy. The currency has been named ‘Vayron’ (VAR), with interested parties able to participate in the presale through a smart contract mechanism on the Ethereum blockchain. Currently 1 ETH is worth 14,750 VAR, with a Hard cap of 22,000 ETH. Circulating supply of the new VAR currency is unknown. Whilst the speculative details and proposition of this new currency remain to be seen, if at all, the conceptual use case and prospect that a self-governing, self-sufficient, cryptocurrency ‘powered’ ecosystem holds is potentially remarkable. The company behind this venture – Blue Frontiers Ltd – was founded by the executive team and ambassadors of the Seasteading Institute, with billionaire Peter Theil a notable founder. Blue Frontiers claim that these new floating islands, dubbed ‘Seasteads’, will offer a decentralised form of governance, bringing fairer decision-making in the place of overly centralised institutions. They will also provide a tangible solution to the threat of rising sea level and overcrowded cities. Furthermore, ‘SeaZones’ will become Special Economic Zones, creating legal and regulatory frameworks within territorial waters of host nations. The fact that Blue Frontiers have already secured a pilot project with the French Polynesian government goes to show that there is genuine interest in such a project. Whilst this particular development will not directly affect speculative cryptocurrency investments, it surely demonstrates the use-cases and potentially transformational change that DLT and cryptocurrencies can bring. . . . *This is not financial advice, just my thought* *Credit: CryptoCoinSpy . . . #BTC #ETH #BCH #Ethereum #Bitcoin #Cryptolife #cryptocrazies #Ledger #TomLee #DigitalCoin #Digitialcurrency #tron #XRB #XRP #Google #Cryptocurrency #Crypto #like #Ripple #Insta #gram #google #Googleads #CryptoAds #Follow . #Neo #Stellar #Raiblocks #Cardano
