Sia is reinventing cloud storage. Our technology connects users who need file storage with hosts worldwide offering underutilized hard drive capacity. Blockchain technology secures their data and enables improved economics for users and hosts. The Sia blockchain allows this marketplace to run without an intermediary. Sia secures storage transactions with smart contracts, creating a more reliable and affordable offering when compared to traditional cloud providers. No one person or organization can censor or deny access to data?not miners, not developers, nor any government. We believe Sia?s distributed, decentralized storage technology is stronger, more secure, more efficient, and more equitable for the entire ecosystem. We believe that neither individuals nor institutions should be beholden to large corporations. Sia was created to promote and safeguard users? freedoms. It?s our attempt to bring decentralized storage built on blockchain technology to the mainstream without sacrificing price or performance. Our long term goal is for Sia to become the backbone storage layer of the Internet. Nebulous, Inc. was established in 2014 and launched the Sia Storage Platform in 2015. Based in Boston, Nebulous is funded by Raptor Group, First Star Ventures, Fenbushi Capital and INBlockchain.

Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) price, rating, news, and analysis - Binance Info
Bitcoin Diamond, another hard fork of Bitcoin, claims to solve this problem. The soon-to-be-released altcoin will fork once the Bitcoin network hits block height 495,866. By the time you read this article, that network block should have been discovered by miners already. It is the third major airdrop Bitcoin users will receive this year, not counting the B2X coins from the borked SegWit2x launch. It has been a profitable year for BTC holders in many different ways; that much is certain. What Bitcoin Diamond claims to offer is privacy first and foremost. It seems this fork?s developers have found a way to encrypt the transaction amounts and balances of all BCD users. It sounds somewhat similar to Monero, but it is doubtful the Bitcoin Diamond implementation is even half as competent. A GitHub repo has yet to be created for this altcoin, but that may change once the correct block is found on the Bitcoin network.

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) price, rating, news, and analysis - Binance Info
Bitcoin Gold is a community-led project to create an experimental hard fork of Bitcoin to a new proof-of-work algorithm. The purpose of doing this is to make Bitcoin mining decentralized again. Satoshi Nakamoto?s idealistic vision of ?one CPU one vote? has been superseded by a reality dominated by a very small number of entities, some of whom have engaged in abusive practices against individual miners and the Bitcoin network as a whole. Bitcoin Gold provides an opportunity for countless new people around the world to participate in the mining process with widely-available consumer hardware that is manufactured and distributed by reputable mainstream corporations. A more decentralized, democratic mining infrastructure is more resilient and more in line with Satoshi?s original vision. We want Bitcoin to be a shared and independent currency. We don?t want any fat cat to drive our monetary architecture. That?s why Bitcoin Gold was born, in order to bring Bitcoin mining back to the ?people?. The Bitcoin Gold organization works to support the Bitcoin Gold cryptocurrency in particular, and the cryptocurrency space in general. Current and future operations are funded by a crypto Endowment held in multi-sig time-locked wallets. Bitcoin Gold, BTG, is a cryptocurrency that began in 2017 as a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain. Because Bitcoin Gold began as a fork, it contains the full transaction history of the Bitcoin blockchain up until the fork date, including the exact balances of Bitcoins held in wallets around the world. Any wallet address holding a Bitcoin balance immediately before the the fork held an equivalent balance of Bitcoin Gold immediately after the fork. The original Bitcoin blockchain and the new Bitcoin Gold blockchain both continue onward independently after the fork, unaffected and unimpeded by each other. As a result of this process, a new cryptocurrency was born.

Bitcoin | Bitcoin Price | Bitcoin News | BTC | Info
Bitcoin is one of many cryptocurrencies currently finding its way across the world of business and finance, Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and was thought of as Internet money in its early beginnings. Unlike fiat currencies Bitcoin is considered a decentralized currency that means that a network of users control and verify transactions instead of a central authority like a bank or a government. Bitcoin still works like real money one person pays another person for goods and services however once Bitcoin is exchanged, the record of the transaction is publicly recorded onto a ledger known as a blockchain, which other Bitcoin users known as miners verify the transactions in the blockchain via Proof of Work. After a certain amount of transactions have been verified by a miner, they will receive newly minted bitcoins for their work and thus new bitcoins will be added into circulation, while the number of bitcoins in circulations are now in the multi-millions range, the maximum amount of bitcoins that can ever be created is capped at 21 million. The creation rate is automatically halved every few years as more bitcoins are added into circulation, whilst this system is modeled after gold, mining difficulty is always increasing and makes finding new bitcoins more rare as the number of available bitcoins reaches the 21 million cap. As bitcoin has matured as a cryptocurrency there has been more companies warming to the idea of using various bitcoin exchange facilities to gain exposure to the volatile bitcoin price while a few websites such as reddit WordPress and overstock have begun accepting bitcoins, most major retailers have yet to take the plunge into the cryptoverse whils other pioneers have decided to create their own bitcoin forks and have listed new projects on other cryptocurrency exchanges.

Crypto Market Update: Consolidation Bitcoin (BTC) & Litecoin (LTC) Price
Cryptocurrency News & Your Guide to the Blockchain Economy From yesterday when the evaluation of the crypto market was at its highest around $211B we have seen a decrease in the market evaluation by 2.3 billion dollars. As you can see from the global chart the evaluation is inside a triangle like a pattern with a breakout looking like about to happen very soon. This triangle was created after the spike last Monday which retested the resistance from the descending channel as the market entered consolidation. Now that the evaluation has bounced off its support a short-term increase is expected potentially breaking out of the minor triangle and heading toward the descending channels resistance line again. Ultimately the wave structure is expected to head down so any upward move would be considered temporary.
