Bitcoin Cash Launches Notary Service | Crypto Briefing Bitcoin Cash Launches Notary Service | Crypto Briefing
April 18, 2019 7:41 AM Now, if only they could make a blockchain lawyer too.... Bitcoin.com, the leading advocate for Bitcoin?s largest fork, is launching a notarial service to verify and authenticate documents. The new function will will allow anyone to prove their ownership of timestamped documents, photos or videos directly on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain, without needing another person to record them. Securing ownership of copyrighted material through traditional means like patents can be costly and will often require the validation of authorized third parties (notaries). According to The Balance, typical notarial fees might range from $2 to $20 per signature, although notarizing mortgages may cost up to $100.

BSV hashrate is plummeting, down 37 BSV hashrate is plummeting, down 37
April 17, 2019 9:40 AM The biggest story in the Bitcoin world over the past couple of weeks has been the increased rejection of Bitcoin SV (BSV) by prominent members of the Bitcoin community. BSV was created as a spinoff coin of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) last November. BSV differs from BCH in that it has a larger block size limit and a lack of some specific smart contract functionality. Many Bitcoin users never took BSV seriously due to the fact that it is highly centralized behind CoinGeek Founder Calvin Ayre and nChain Chief Scientist Craig Wright, who has made numerous highly dubious claims about his credentials over the years (as pointed out by Wikileaks, longtime Bitcoin Core contributor Greg Maxwell, Charles Sturt University, Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin, and others). But the indifference toward BSV turned to outrage when some in the crypto community: including Blockstream CEO Adam Back, ?What Bitcoin Did? host Peter McCormack and the pseudonymous Twitter user Hodlonaut; started to receive legal threats regarding their references to Wright as a fraud.

Cryptocurrency Users Buy Bitcoin Only When Price Surges Cryptocurrency Users Buy Bitcoin Only When Price Surges
April 17, 2019 9:18 AM The data provided by Google Trends shows that the search phrase ?buy Bitcoin? only multiplied in March after the price of the cryptocurrency started surging. According to the chart, the interest in Bitcoin (BTC) ? the leading crypto by market cap ? crowded on Wednesday April 3, reaching an all-out score of 100 on Google Trends. At the time, BTC was trading about $5,300, a significant upsurge of more than 26% as compared to 48 hours before when it was changing hands at around $4,200.    The Google search trends indicate that users become more interested and willing to purchase Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies when their prices are steadily skyrocketing, versus when it is plunging ? this is due to the fact that people always don?t want to forego a further upturn in the price (the fear of foregoing FOMO).

Bitcoin SV delisting shows self-regulation is the way forwards Bitcoin SV delisting shows self-regulation is the way forwards
April 16, 2019 5:26 AM Binance is large and well-respected cryptocurrency exchange. Yesterday, it announced that it would delist Bitcoin SV (tickers: BCHSV, BSV) because it ?no longer meets? the Exchange?s standards. Public cryptocurrencies are all open source and you may reuse the source code without restriction. Therefore if you don?t like the technical direction a project is taking you can copy the code, make the changes you want and release it under a new name. This is called ?forking?. The first fork to get the public?s attention was the fork of Bitcoin in August 2017 that produced Bitcoin Cash. This goal of this new chain was to reduce the cost of Bitcoin transactions by using larger blocks. While the Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash teams would both argue that in the long-run their coins will do everything a user wants in practice this resulted in two coins with two different use cases.  Bitcoin is optimised as a secure digital store of wealth (?digital gold?) and Bitcoin Cash is optimised for transactions (?digital cash?).
