  Putin’s Advisor Plans $100 Million ICO for Bitcoin Mining Farm in Russia
Posted by: admin - 08-30-2017, 08:52 AM - Forum: News From Cryptocurrency Market - No Replies

At a time in which Russia prepares to legalize Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), a company co-owned by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s internet ombudsman Dmitry Marinichev reportedly plans on raising as much as $100 million through an ICO, in order to help Russian entrepreneurs challenge China’s bitcoin mining supremacy.
The company, Russian Miner Coin (RMC) is going to issue tokens in exchange for Bitcoin and Ethereum, so as to use the funds to build mining infrastructure in Russia. RMC token holders will have the rights to 18% of the revenue generated by the company’s mining equipment, according to Bloomberg.
Per Dmitry Marinichev, RMC plans on using semiconductor chips designed in Russia, designed to be used in satellites, to minimize power consumptions in cryptocurrency mining operations. Putin’s internet advisor even added that Russia has the potential to be a dominant player in the cryptocurrency mining industry, stating:

Quote:“Russia has the potential to reach up to 30 percent share in global cryptocurrency mining in the future.”
According to Bloomberg, Russia has 20 gigawatts of excess power capacity, which makes consumer electricity prices as low as 1.3 cents (80 kopeks) per kilowatt hour, reportedly less than in China. This surplus would give Russia an edge over China, as one of the biggest costs associated with bitcoin mining is power consumption.

Bitcoin mining is an energy intensive process that generates new tokens and adds new transactions to the blockchain. Currently, miners get a 12.5 BTC (about $54,000) reward for discovering a block. Additionally, the miners are awarded fees users paid in transactions as an incentive.
Russia Joins Billion-Dollar ICO Mania
Various ICOs have recently raised millions of dollars within a few hours, often with more than a good idea and a well-written whitepaper to show. RMC’s ICO might be a way for Russia to instantly secure the $100 million to tackle China’s bitcoin mining supremacy and take over the market – if it hits the desired amount, that is.
Putin’s internet ombudsman’s company is the latest to join this year’s ICO mania. As reported by CCN, in the first half of 2017, ICOs raised over $1.2 billion. Recently, Estonia also announced it could issue its own national digital currency, Estcoin, in the world’s first government ICO.

  $160 Billion: Cryptocurrency Market Sets New All-Time High
Posted by: admin - 08-29-2017, 08:51 AM - Forum: News From Cryptocurrency Market - No Replies

Investment in cryptocurrencies continues to increase.
Spurred by increases in investment, the total value of the more than 800 publicly traded cryptocurrencies and crypto assets pushed past $160 billion for the first time ever, according to data provider CoinMarketCap.
With the move, the figure is now up 1,500 percent from the $10 billion observed at the start of the year.
Notably, the new high was set even as bitcoin, the market's largest asset, continued its recent pattern of sideways trading, hovering in the $4,400-range, or about 1% below its all time high of $4,522.13 on the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI).
Similar, ether and bitcoin were mostly flat on the day's trading.
At press time, it seemed most of the growth in the top 10 cryptocurrencies was consolidated to two assets, with Ripple's XRP token and monero's XMR token rising 9% and 7.9%, respectively, over the last 24 hours.
On XMR's increase, the asset regained a spot in the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization after some time out of the spotlight.

Elsewhere, investment in litecoin appeared to cool after it set all-time highs earlier in the day's trading. After rising past $60 for the first time since the protocol was introduced in 2011, the token was down nearly 2%.

  Estonia May Issue its Own Cryptocurrency
Posted by: admin - 08-29-2017, 03:11 AM - Forum: News From Cryptocurrency Market - No Replies

Estonia, a European country known for its modern and forward-thinking society, is likely to issue a cryptocurrency of its own, according to an announcement written by Estonia’s E-Residency managing director, Kaspar Korjus.  The name of the cryptocurrency will be Estcoins, and they will function as an asset that will funnel investor's funds to the support and development of the nation.  Korjus has been consulting with Vitalik Buterin, one of the masterminds behind Ethereum, and this is what Buterin had to say:

"An ICO within the e-Residency ecosystem would create a strong incentive alignment between e-residents and this fund, and beyond the economic aspect makes the e-residents feel like more of a community since there are more things they can do together,” says Buterin.
"Additionally if these estcoins are issued on top of a blockchain (they could possibly be issued in multiple formats at the same time, nothing wrong with this) then it would become easy and convenient to use them inside of smart contracts and other applications."
The concept of the Estcoin will present a uniquely mouth-watering opportunity for entrepreneurs to invest in themselves, indirectly.  Estonia is the first Country in the world to offer E-Residency that enables the residents to open businesses remotely in a matter of minutes. With the potential for Estcoins to become a way to invest in Estonia, this would be a great way for those who have opened Estonian businesses to support their own success.  
Korjus explained further in his statement seen on his blog
“In time, estcoins could also be accepted as payment for both public and private services and eventually function as a viable currency used globally. By using our APIs, companies and even other countries could accept these same tokens as payment. It will also be possible to build more functions on top of the estcoins and use them for more purposes, such as smart contracts and notary services."
The fact that the Estonian nation is already discussing the creation of Estcoins in a public announcement setting is possibly a clever way to test the response from potential investors and to secure plenty of salivating newcomers as well. Even though the blog published by Korjus seemed to imply that this is only an idea, the Estonian government website has a mailing list capture page for anyone interested in receiving updates regarding the coin here. Evidently,  Estcoins are not merely an idea, but rather, an approaching reality that is a cleverly veiled teaser, rallying to gain public support.  Clever tactic, Estonia! Bravo!

  SEC Suspends Trading of Publicly Listed Bitcoin Firm
Posted by: admin - 08-25-2017, 11:01 AM - Forum: News From Cryptocurrency Market - No Replies

SEC Halts Trading of First Bitcoin Capital Shares

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued a temporary suspension of First Bitcoin Capital, a publicly-traded bitcoin firm based out of Canada.
According to an SEC statement, the suspension began at 9:30am EDT on August 24 and will last until 11:59am on September 7. First Bitcoin Capital was a publicly-traded corporation (Symbol: BITCF), and its share price had risen more than 6,000% in 2017. At the time trading was suspended, the BITCF share price was $1.79.
Citing the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the SEC chose to suspend trading due to concerns about First Bitcoin Capital’s assets and capital structure:

Quote:The Commission temporarily suspended trading in the securities of BITCF because of concerns regarding the accuracy and adequacy of publicly available information about the company including, among other things, the value of BITCF’s assets and its capital structure. This order was entered pursuant to Section 12(k) of the Exchange Act.
According to the company website, First Bitcoin Capital is involved in several different cryptocurrency projects, including a mining group, a bitcoin ATM and check cashing service designed for cannabis dispensaries, and a bitcoin exchange. However, several of the project websites contain nothing except for a contact form.

Following news of the SEC suspension, Bronstein, Gerwitz & Grossman, LLC–a corporate litigation boutique with locations in New York, New Jersey, and Los Angeles–released a shareholder alert announcing an investigation in to potential claims on behalf of purchasers of BITCF shares. According to the announcement, the law firm specializes in the “aggressive pursuit” of class action security litigation and securities arbitration.
First Bitcoin Capital did not immediately respond to CCN’s request for comment.
SEC Eyes Cryptocurrency with Closer Scrutiny
The cryptocurrency ecosystem has come under increasing scrutiny from the SEC in recent months. In July, the SEC released an investigative report concluding that DAO tokens constituted a security, and that, by extension, “U.S. securities laws may apply to offers, sales, and trading of interests in virtual organizations.” For this reason, Filecoin restricted its record-setting initial coin offering (ICO) to accredited investors. Other ICOs have attempted to skirt securities regulations by prohibiting U.S. investors from participating. However, most investors are savvy enough to use a VPN to bypass IP restrictions, and it is not clear whether IP blocking is enough to constitute regulatory compliance.

USD/CHF
The USD/CHF pair is testing the 20-period EMA with a series of doji candles forming indicating some uncertainty in the market. A spike in volume in today’s trading session suggests there is still significant interest in the pair. MACD appears to be supporting the positive sentiment, as it is close to breaking the zero line to the upside. RSI is flat at the default line. A break of the 20 -period EMA will make the 0.966 price level the next target. The EUR/GBP pair was supported by fundamentals in yesterday’s trading session.
Impact event: U.S. Core Durable Goods Orders will be released at 15:30 GMT+3 and will impact all U.S. Dollar pairs.

 EUR/USD
The EUR/USD pair has bounced off the the 20-period EMA and appears to be heading towards the next target at the 1.17 price level which represents a previous support line. MACD appears to be on the verge of breaking the zero line to the downside. RSI also has a downward trajectory. However, with volume declining, the question is whether the move can be sustained.

USD/JPY
The USD/JPY 1- hour chart indicates that the pair has entered into a uptrend, which has elements of a flag continuation pattern. Buyers appear to have reached a point of exhaustion as price action has moved sideways to start today’s trading session. Declining volume confirms the loss in momentum. Will the trend continue? RSI is approaching the 70 oversold level therefore there is a chance of a bearish reversal, yet MACD indicates that sentiment remains positive currently.

GOLD
Gold prices have moved above the 20-period EMA however, a break of the zero line on MACD will be required to confirm the uptrend. MACD has an upward trajectory and appears to be moving in a more positive direction. However, RSI is flat and volume has almost disappeared, indicating the metal will probably trade in range between the 16.90 and 17.04 price levels.

  Segregated Witness Activates on Bitcoin: This is What to Expect
Posted by: admin - 08-24-2017, 09:33 AM - Forum: News From Cryptocurrency Market - No Replies

[Image: segwit_acti.width-800.jpg]

The Segregated Witness (SegWit) soft fork has activated on the Bitcoin network.
As of block height 481,824, found at 1:57 UTC by BTCC, all SegWit ready nodes started enforcing the new SegWit consensus rules. As Bitcoin’s biggest protocol upgrade to date, this introduces a whole new data structure, which changes the appearance of Bitcoin blocks for upgraded nodes — though non-upgraded nodes should continue to function as normal.
More concretely, SegWit activation means that Bitcoin’s block size limit is replaced by a block “weight” limit, which allows for blocks to increase to up to 4 megabytes in size. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, SegWit transactions won’t suffer from the “malleability bug,” which in turn enables advanced second-layer protocols like the Lightning Network, atomic swaps, MAST, and more.
Here’s what to expect for the next couple of hours, days, weeks, months and beyond…
The Block Size Limit Becomes a Block Weight Limit
Depending on the types of transactions included, Bitcoin blocks can now be up to 4 megabytes big — though 2 megabytes is a more realistic maximum.
However, this doesn’t mean that all blocks will immediately bump to 2 megabytes in size today. For a transaction to utilize the added space, it must be sent from a SegWit address (or more accurately, a Segwit “output”) — not just to a SegWit address.
At the time of activation, of course, no bitcoins were locked up in SegWit addresses whatsoever. That wasn’t possible up till now. So at the very least, bitcoins must be spent once to a SegWit address. Only when they’re spent again will they benefit from the extra space.
Additionally, wallets and other applications need to be ready to accept SegWit transactions. Some wallets, like GreenAddress, may offer this option on day one, or shortly thereafter. “We had this in testnet on by default for a very long time now,” GreenAddress developer Lawrence Nahum told Bitcoin Magazine. “We’ll make it's available almost immediately after activation; we just want to make sure activation is smooth before we enable it.”
Similarly, large Bitcoin service providers could start accepting SegWit transactions right away, though some may need more time to prepare. BitGo, a Bitcoin infrastructure provider for major exchanges like BitstampKraken and OKCoinexpects to be SegWit-ready relatively soon as well.
BitGo engineer Jameson Lopp told Bitcoin Magazine:
“We’ve not set an actual date, though we certainly want to deploy it as soon as possible. I expect general availability sometime next week.”
Some other wallets and services, however, may take a little longer; how long will differ from wallet to wallet.
Lightning and More
Arguably even more highly anticipated than an increased block size, second-layer technologies like the Lightning Network or, further out, Merkelized Abstract Syntax Trees (MAST), will be more easily built on top of Bitcoin, thanks to Segregated Witness,
Most of this technology is still a work in progress, and it could take several more months before regular users are expected to use it. That said, it is likely that there will be experimentation on Bitcoin’s mainnet rather soon, according to Lightning Labs CEO and cofounder, Elizabeth Stark.
“Today we released version 0.3 alpha of our Lightning Network Daemon software, which is the last major release before our mainnet beta release,” said Stark to Bitcoin Magazine. “We're not giving any exact predictions, but our goal is to get it up and running as soon as it's thoroughly tested and stable. We may also see some test mainnet transactions by developers once SegWit activates.”
And even when the Lightning Network is functional and in use, it will take a little longer to roll out more advanced features that utilize the Lightning Network or similar protocols. These include atomic swaps, which allows for the instant and (near) costless exchange of cryptocurrencies over different blockchains, like bitcoin and litecoin. And Stark said a larger development ecosystem is growing around the technology as well.
“We're seeing app development on the Lightning Network taking off, which we're very excited about. Once the mainnet releases are out, we expect there to be a bunch of apps working on the Lightning Network out of the box,” she added.
Further, more nuanced benefits of SegWit, such as faster transaction signing by hardware wallets, will be available within a matter of days.
The Risks
At this point in time, SegWit activation does still present some risks for users.
The first risk applies to all soft forks, and depends on miners actually enforcing the new rules. If some don’t, non-upgraded nodes as well as many light clients in particular could accept invalid transactions and blocks, at least until the network corrects that through a blockchain reorganization (“reorg”). In the past, soft forks caused some (minimal) network disruption, but the risks do seem limited this time around.
“I suspect that the reorg risk is relatively low for full nodes with SegWit. The only prior case like this was that validationless mining chain-split two years ago, but that didn't affect full nodes,” Blockchain consultant Peter Todd told Bitcoin Magzine. “And fortunately Bitcoin Core includes a lot of improvements to speed that older and alternative implementations don't have, so there's a good chance basically all miners are running Bitcoin Core with only small modifications to non-consensus code, if any.”
Additionally, the first couple of hours after activation could open a small window for advanced types of miner attacks, which resemble (or are) 51% attacks. If large amounts of bitcoin are sent to SegWit addresses after activation, miners could theoretically still “roll back” the blockchain to a point in time before activation to re-build it from there. Since SegWit outputs are not secure before activation, such a rollback could allow miners to steal these funds.
Luckily, like any other 51% attack, the costs to perform this attack increase for every block that is found after activation, to the point where the attack becomes infeasible within a couple of hours. That said, it is probably wise not to send huge amounts of bitcoin to SegWit addresses straight away, and instead to wait at least a couple of hours or maybe days.
Lastly, Todd pointed out that some (untested) services may fail shortly after SegWit activation, as they have likely only integrated SegWit support partially. “For example, remote procedure calls could request SegWit transactions, while at the same time rejecting these transactions because they didn’t expect to get them.” These kinds of issues should be easy to fix, however.

I just signed up with laseronline. I have not yet deposited, since my bitcoin wallet says there is a backlog of transactions. I figure if it will take a while I might as well wait.

In the meantime I decided to check out the Telegraph chat provided by the site.

OMG, what an unpleasant experience. The moderator, Ethan, was totally impatient and abrasive.

I won't go back to that chat. I may not even invest in the program.

Will have to think about it some more.

Looking over this program, I see I can deposit bitcoin into an account there, and then put it into an investment. These are the only 2 investments I might have enough funds for:

Life (Flexible interest send to your account daily for life. Principal can withdraw after 365 days. . )
Interest Rate : 0.30% Minimum : 10.00USD / 0.01000000 BTC Maximum : 100,000.00USD / 100.00000000 BTC

Jumbo (Interest send to your account after 1 day. Principal included the earnings. Limited daily investment amount available only! )
Interest Rate : 110.00% Minimum : 10.00USD / 0.01000000 BTC Maximum : 10,000.00USD / 5.00000000 BTC

Obviously, the second one looks really great, but what does "Limited daily investment amount available only!" mean?

Sounds to me like it may be "deposit bait", get you to deposit only to find out that option is not actually available.

The first one, at 0.30% (I assume daily) comes to 9% per month, unless my math is wrong. That is less that what bitcoin appreciates on its own, so would actually lose money from investing bitcoin in that one.

Another issue is the discrepancy between the minimum deposit amounts in USD and bitcoin. Looks like that bitcoin amount is old, since currently $10 USD is about 0.00234784 bitcoin.

Life (Flexible interest send to your account daily for life. Principal can withdraw after 365 days. . )

Life (Flexible interest send to your account daily for life. Principal can withdraw after 365 days. . )

Life (Flexible interest send to your account daily for life. Principal can withdraw after 365 days. . )

  Quick Recovery! Bitcoin hits $4100 again
Posted by: admin - 08-23-2017, 08:23 AM - Forum: News From Cryptocurrency Market - No Replies

The price of Bitcoin went below the $4,000 line yesterday, quickly crashing and reaching a 12-day low of $3660 at around 5:00 AM UTC. While it is unclear what caused the dip, it may be related to the upcoming SegWit activation. The nature of the update may make some investors wary, prompting them to "wait out" the update and return once technical stability is ensured.

Whatever caused it, the crash didn’t last long, as Bitcoin started to recover immediately after reaching its 12-day low and is now sitting at $4110. Having risen 12.50% today, Bitcoin's trading volume is also higher than usual with $555.19 M exchanged in the USD/BTC markets in the last 24h. As usual, Japan is leading the markets in trading volume with a 45% market share
Despite its rising hash rate, BitcoinCash did not accompany Bitcoin on its way up, remaining fairly stable following its latest descent from the weekend all-time high.
SegWit coming soon
While it is still unclear if the upcoming soft fork caused the BTC flash crash, the quick recovery may also have something to do with the long-awaited SegWit activation which is scheduled to take place one day from now. The SegWit update will allow the Bitcoin network to handle more transactions, a prospect that can restore Bitcoin’s characteristics as a quick and cheap payment method. In theory, SegWit can double Bitcoin's transaction throughput.  
The activation of SegWit was an uphill battle. However, the SegWit2X agreement managed to bring industry leaders together, winning over more than 80% of the network hash rate. Although the Segregated Witness (SegWit) update will be activated tomorrow, the SegWit2X agreement also aims to increase the transaction capacity by means of a hard fork in November, increasing the 1mb block size limit to a 2mb one. 
Some members of the developer community have voiced their concerns and complaints regarding the technical dangers and lack of planning that has been put into the SegWit2X agreement, claiming that it's a rushed upgrade and that an hard fork should be better planned.
Future looks bright for Bitcoin
The price of Bitcoin has grown 250% in the last 6 months, breaking previous all-time highs and gaining popularity all over the world. The future looks bright for Bitcoin, as even well-known skeptics like Mark Cuban are beginning to invest in the space.
