April 06, 2019 1:16 PM Mission: To work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the earth. Heifer does this by providing appropriate livestock, training and related services to small-scale farmers and communities worldwide. Seventy-five years ago, Dan West began outlining a simple but groundbreaking plan to help the hungry. West, a Midwestern farmer and Church of the Brethren member, had recently returned from volunteer service in the Spanish Civil War where his job was to provide weary refugees with a single cup of milk. He knew American farmers had resources many others did not: cows and the steady supply of nutrition from their milk.

Cryptocurrency Mining Firm Riot Blockchain Reports $58 Million Loss in 2018 Cryptocurrency Mining Firm Riot Blockchain Reports $58 Million Loss in 2018
April 05, 2019 5:17 AM Home » Cryptocurrency Mining Firm Riot Blockchain Reports $58 Million Loss in 2018 American cryptocurrency mining company Riot Blockchain has published its latest financial report, revealing a $58 million loss in 2018. Given that the company has been housing the majority of its cryptocurrency miners in Oklahoma City, its fixed costs related to utilities, labor, and depreciation are likely higher than most other mining companies. Prior to its abrupt interest in the digital currency industry, Riot positioned itself as a biotechnology firm that developed medical diagnostic machinery. The company mined 1,081 bitcoins and 3,0213 litecoins last year, earning a total of $7.7 million.

Massive Bitcoin Whale Triggered BTC Surge With $100 Million Order, Says Crypto Investment Firm CEO Massive Bitcoin Whale Triggered BTC Surge With $100 Million Order, Says Crypto Investment Firm CEO
April 02, 2019 11:23 AM The CEO of cryptocurrency firm BCB Group says Bitcoin?s massive pump was triggered by a single Bitcoin whale, in a coordinated effort to buy nearly $100 million worth of BTC across three crypto exchanges. Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie told Reuters a 20,000 BTC buying spree executed simultaneously on Coinbase, Kraken and Bitstamp is largely responsible for the surge, which briefly boosted the price of BTC above $5,000. ?There has been a single order that has been algorithmically-managed across these three venues, of around 20,000 BTC. If you look at the volumes on each of those three exchanges ? there were in-concert, synchronized, units of volume of around 7,000 BTC in an hour.?

The Events That Could Increase Crypto Adoption in 2019 The Events That Could Increase Crypto Adoption in 2019
April 02, 2019 8:07 AM The crypto industry has been through a veritable rollercoaster over the past two years. After hitting historic highs of nearly $20,000 and peak hype for the market, bitcoin?s value has since collapsed, rebounded, and stabilized. Likewise, the ICO boom, which saw billions raised for blockchain projects and contributed to the sector?s rapid expansion, has fizzled as many of the services and applications that raised capital have failed or disappeared. Even so, the industry?s, momentum continues unabated, driven by consumer and investor optimism, and an increased interest from institutional investors and enterprise businesses. After a relatively weak 2018, 2019 looks to be a year of tremendous opportunity for crypto. A series of major announcements, events, and factors could converge to finish pushing crypto over the fence and into the mainstream full time. From an increase in crypto CFD trading to the introduction of financial and banking tools geared toward facilitating cryptocurrency transfers and payments, these are the events that could define the market in 2019.

Global market-cap has continued to rise again, up to $147bln today - with BTC dominance remaining at the 50% level.  BTCUSD price action has been rising consistently during March and is now approaching the last high from back in February.  Crypto markets are heating up in general with Alt-coins seeing frequent gains during the past weeks, today IOST is the leading gainer - with a 23% rally over the last 24 hours. Data from Blockchain.com Bitcoin transactions have spiked up to near the previous all time highs of 420k, with the current transactions at 393k per day, with the transactions per second (TPS) wavering between 3 to 4 TPS currently. Although over the past months what has become more frequent is large spikes in transactional activity, with a record spike only a few days ago hitting a high of 29 TPS. Data from Blockchain.com With the advent of more easy access to Bitcoin ATMs, Casa Node for lightning network and integration with popular apps like cash.app, it seems adoption is primed to grow during 2019.  As Bitcoin scales larger and becomes more prevalent in society, we can expect to see even more spikes of new highs in transactions per second.

IOTA - Explaining the Qubic Computation Model: Part 4 IOTA - Explaining the Qubic Computation Model: Part 4
April 01, 2019 5:08 PM In the first part of this series, we have looked at a conceptual overview of the Abra specification, which describes the how data flow is achieved within the Qubic Computation Model. In the second part we used the Abra specification to start implementing Qupla, a higher level programming language for Qubic. We introduced Qupla?s most basic entities (trit vectors, look-up tables, and constants) and how they map to Abra. The third part explored the way Qupla uses functions and expressions. This fourth part will show what basic operations Qupla provides. A quick recap: Qupla expressions are made up of a very limited number of basic operations. These operations can be combined in different ways to express the intent for the expression. There are only five basic operations in Qupla from the programmer?s viewpoint:
