January 16, 2019 1:54 PM Could Ethereum?s transaction rate be heading to Visa levels? Ethereum researchers Harry R, Yondon Fu, and Philippe Castonguay, Alex Gluchowski and Barry Whitehat have recently introduced a new initiative, an off-chain solution called Snark-based side chain. It might just be a crucial one, too. It will allow users to transfer tokens and ETH outside of the Ethereum mainnet, which means, before the release of a channel composed of thousands of transactions made between users on the Ethereum network, users can request withdrawals at the smart contract level. Apparently, the solution could scale the network to 17,000 transactions per second, almost equivalent to the transaction capacity of Visa. And that would be a huge breakthrough for cryptocurrency and blockchain, with transactions per second a huge factor currently holding both back.

January 16, 2019 1:52 PM (Photo by Tomohiro Ohsumi/Getty Images) After gaining some recognition on Wall Street, cryptocurrencies have attracted the interest of asset rating agencies. Last week, Florida-based Weiss Ratings released a report that assigned grades to dozens of cryptocurrencies based on a number of metrics, like risk, technological innovation, and other fundamentals. There were a couple of surprises to the report. One of them was that none of the cryptocurrencies rated received an ?A.? Another surprise was that Ethereum received a higher grade than Bitcoin and Ripple. Source: Coinmarketcap.com Friday, January 26, 2018, 11.30 a.m.

Weiss Ratings gives ethereum higher rating than bitcoin Weiss Ratings gives ethereum higher rating than bitcoin
January 16, 2019 1:49 PM Weiss Ratings, which claims to offer the first "ratings" on cryptocurrencies, has judged ethereum to be better than bitcoin. The securities ratings agency announced Wednesday that it gave ethereum a B rating because it "benefits from more readily upgradable technology and better speed, despite some bottlenecks." Bitcoin received a "fair" C+ rating because the digital currency is "encountering major network bottlenecks, causing delays and high transactions costs," according to a release. "Despite intense ongoing efforts that are achieving some initial success, Bitcoin has no immediate mechanism for promptly upgrading its software code."

John Oliver lists crazy (but, real) cryptocurrency coins outside the familiar Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple - BuyBlockChain John Oliver lists crazy (but, real) cryptocurrency coins outside the familiar Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple - BuyBlockChain
January 16, 2019 1:26 PM Although blockchain stocks and bitcoin news are usually pretty serious topics given their role in technology and finance, not every bit of the blockchain news feed is devoid of humor entirely. Previous article ?Why Ethereum Could Hit $4,000 In 2018,? despite its straightforward title, hinted at the lighter side of cryptocurrency news due to its mention of Ethereum based game CryptoKitties. Oliver discussed the cryptocurrency conference which stopped accepting Bitcoin payments due to slow settlement speeds as well as the burgeoning Bitcoin music industry. At one point, Oliver explained how, since Bitcoin is an open-source software, budding miners have created over 1,500 cryptocurrencies, many of which have some rather ridiculous names.

Robinhood Might Be Working On a New Crypto Wallet To Integrate With Its App - Ethereum World News Robinhood Might Be Working On a New Crypto Wallet To Integrate With Its App - Ethereum World News
January 16, 2019 1:11 PM One of the many reasons cryptocurrency enthusiasts can sort of tell what a particular crypto company is up to, is by reading in between the lines of any job advertisement by such a company. With respect to Robinhood, the company has recently posted a job ad for a Crypto Engineer. Key duties of the Crypto engineer as outlined by the job advertisement are: It is with the first job requirement that we can deduce that Robinhood is probably working on a Cryptocurrency wallet of its own. The job ad goes on to describe the following as additional skills. According to information from a Robinhood spokesperson, users of the platform have been constantly asking for a simpler more efficient way of moving cryptocurrencies into the app from other platforms. This might be the reason why one of the additional skills required for the job, is good knowledge of REST API design to allow for the communication between different crypto platforms as well as the Robinhood App to its wallet. Having a wallet integrated with the trading App, will allow for a safer, secure and more efficient ways for the users to trade on the platform.

January 16, 2019 1:09 PM The stock brokerage app Robinhood announced Thursday that it is the latest service to get into the cryptocurrency game. But unlike, say, Long Island Ice Tea, KFC, or Kodak, the trading app?s embrace of the blockchain could be much more than a curio for bitcoin enthusiasts. ?Robinhood is the only brokerage app to offer stock and crypto trading under one platform,? a spokesperson tells Inverse. Founded in 2013, the app offers commission-free stock trading in an effort to increase access to the market for those who would otherwise be put off by exorbitant fees. The site offers to aim the same for a variety of cryptocurrencies with the newly launched Robinhood Crypto feature.

BTCP Plunges After Expos, Team To Hard Fork Bitcoin Private - Ethereum World News BTCP Plunges After Expos, Team To Hard Fork Bitcoin Private - Ethereum World News
January 16, 2019 12:47 PM On Sunday, Coin Metrics, an open-source crypto asset analytics team, released a damning report about Bitcoin Private (BTCP), a fork of both Bitcoin and ZClassic (which itself is a fork of ZCash). In the report, titled ?Don?t trust, verify? in an evident nod to the popular saying in the crypto community, it was revealed that the project, which was painted as a private version of Bitcoin (BTC), could have potentially created two million tokens out of thin air, which wasn?t mentioned in the whitepaper. More specifically, there were 102 ?extra-large blocks? during the BTC ?supply import? into BTCP, which created ?400 unexpected outputs.? Per Coin Metrics, each of those mysterious block outputs contained 50 BTCP apiece, meaning that with 102 ?extra-large blocks,? which contained 400 unexpected outputs, 2,040,000 BTCP was falsely minted out of thin air.

January 16, 2019 12:44 PM We?re excited to be able to call AIOMiner, the best miner on the planet! First of all, thank you so much for all of your support over this past year! Your constant suggestions in Discord have helped make AIOMiner what it is today and we are endlessly grateful!   If you haven?t yet, here are some quick links to get involved with AIOMiner: If you?re not familiar with AIOMiner, we were born right here on /r/gpumining. Almost exactly one year ago, /u/xixspiderxix became frustrated with the lack of functionality, ugliness, and the high difficulty required to get started with the already existing miners. Originally, he was just going to make it for himself to enhance his own mining experience, but others started asking for access to the software, suggesting new features, and helping him improve. So, he opened it up to the public for free and AIOMiner was born. And to this day, we maintain our promise that mining with AIOMiner will always be free.

Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, gives out end-of-year praise #hiswai Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, gives out end-of-year praise   #hiswai
January 16, 2019 12:42 PM Vitalik Buterin is a Russian-Canadian writer and programmer, most commonly known for co-founding Ethereum. As 2018 draws to a close, Vitalik has begun handing out praise on Twitter to companies, people, and technology he thinks deserve it. I?d like to follow @cryptochamomile?s tradition and end the year with praise for groups I either consider outgroups or otherwise don?t normally praise, both inside and outside the crypto space? ? Vitalik Non-giver of Ether (@VitalikButerin) December 31, 2018 Whilst Vitalik?s list of praise isn?t exclusive to the world of crypto, he certainly mentions many positives from the cryptosphere. One positive he discusses is the Bitcoin community caring about non-cryptocurrency ?freedom tech.? This point comes in response to a Robert Spigler (a Bitcoin maximalist) tweet about the Bitcoin Core Project looking into new alternative computer architectures. This is a result of popular companies like Intel and AMD using closed platforms and systems, something the world of crypto disagrees with. Many, including Vitalik, believe in open hardware/firmware.

The team Ethereum at the last moment cancelled "Constantinople" The team Ethereum at the last moment cancelled
January 16, 2019 12:40 PM Important hardwork network of Ethereum cryptocurrency, which was to be held today at 7 080 000 (at the time of preparation of the material produced 7 074 520 blocks) and implement a comprehensive renewal of Constantinople, has been postponed indefinitely. All because of a discovered vulnerability. The vulnerability allowing the attack re-entry was discovered on the eve of the anticipated launch updates. A critical problem was identified by auditor smart contracts ChainSecurity. As experts noted, upgrading in Constantinople introduces cheaper gas costs (transaction fees) for certain transactions in Ethereum. As an unexpected side effect this makes it possible to attack the re-entry through the use of certain commands in the smart contracts Ethereum.

Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum: Bullish higher lows or a dead cat bounce Top 3 Price Prediction Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum: Bullish higher lows or a dead cat bounce
January 16, 2019 12:35 PM At the start of each trading session, you will receive an email with the author's new posts. You won't receive any more email notifications from this author. After the SEC delayed the decision on a Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) ahead of the weekend, digital coins tumbled down. However, the calm over the weekend allowed some stabilization and we have seen a cautious recovery. The new week already brings fresh falls, but not to new lows. Does this mean that the recovery was just another "dead cat bounce"? The bullish view is that the fall is only a correction in an uptrend. The drop to higher lows confirms the correction. HODLers may have been disappointed by the SEC decision but can certainly be encouraged by the decision by NASDAQ to ramp up preparations for launching Bitcoin futures, joining other exchanges.
