The plot to revive Mt. Gox and repay victims' Bitcoin The plot to revive Mt. Gox and repay victims' Bitcoin
It was the Lehman Brothers of blockchain: 850,000 Bitcoin disappeared when cryptocurrency exchange Mt. Gox imploded in 2014 after a series of hacks. The incident cemented the industry?s reputation as frighteningly insecure. Now a controversial crypto celebrity named Brock Pierce is trying to get the Mt. Gox flameout?s 24,000 victims their money back and build a new company from the ashes. Pierce spoke to TechCrunch for the first interview about Gox Rising ? his plan to reboot the Mt. Gox brand and challenge Coinbase and Binance for the title of top cryptocurrency exchange. He claims there?s around $630 million and 150,000 Bitcoin waiting in the Mt. Gox bankruptcy trust, and Pierce wants to solve the legal and technical barriers to getting those assets distributed to their rightful owners. This entry was found by us on February 08, 2019 6:53 AM.

The Looming Financial Crisis: What Will Happen To Bitcoin  - HackerNoon The Looming Financial Crisis: What Will Happen To Bitcoin - HackerNoon
You may have noticed that I have been MIA for the past few weeks, but fear not, I am still hanging around (although very busy!) and have been involved in the Cryptocurrency space as much as ever. In the midst of the Great Recession (the economic downturn during the late 2000s and early 2010s), Satoshi Nakamoto released the now-famous paper, ?Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System?. Satoshi proposed ?a purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash that would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution?. It is widely accepted that Satoshi was unhappy with the economic situation at the time (centralized financial institutions, bank bail-outs, etc.) which led to the inception of Bitcoin (in 2008) with its networking ?going live? on 3rd of January in 2009. The first block (genesis block) included the following message ?The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks?, taking aim at Alistair Darling who was preparing a £500Bn rescue package for UK Banks.

#TipsInBitcoin a movement to spread crypto awareness: The Accointing team started with Guatemala #TipsInBitcoin a movement to spread crypto awareness: The Accointing team started with Guatemala
Accointing Website: http://bit.ly/2CLK79G #TipsInBitcoin a movement we want to create to educate people about Bitcoin by giving $BTC as tips. We took the chance to show the purpose of decentralized money to a small cooperative in San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala. The idea was to show the concept of Bitcoin and how in the future, the community of San Juan La Laguna will not only be able to purchase products in a peer to peer manner, but also be their own bank. Through this they will no longer have to deal with the large barriers to opening up a bank account in this banking system. PS. If you would like to bring some joy to Erica and Elizabeth please feel free to tip them in BTC as well. Here is the proof of my transaction to them.

Green Bitcoin Mining Centers To Be Launched In Paraguay By Bitfury Green Bitcoin Mining Centers To Be Launched In Paraguay By Bitfury
Mining giant Bitfury and Commons Foundation, a South Korean R&D firm have announced that they are launching a network of new bitcoin mining operations in the South American nation of Paraguay. Announced last week Thursday, Bitfury stated that a number of new mining centres are to be created using their BlockBox AC bitcoin mining devices. Notably, the mining rigs are to be powered by two major hydroelectric powers plants namely Itaipu Dam and Yacyreta Dam. This new partnership forms part of the Commons Foundation?s Golden Goose project. The government of Paraguay backs this initiative for the sole purpose of establishing the region as the largest crypto mining centre in the world. This endeavour is possible due to the country?s abundant supply of clean and affordable electricity. This posting was found by us on February 06, 2019 1:16 AM.

Attack surface on bitcoin is shrinking: Taproot to increase privacy and fungibility of BTC Attack surface on bitcoin is shrinking: Taproot to increase privacy and fungibility of BTC
Taproot is designed to significantly increase Bitcoin?s privacy. This approach relies on multi-signatures, to be exact, on Schnorr multisigs. Worried about price trends, ETFs and the rift between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, people forget that Bitcoin is also evolving technically. Beyond these public debates, the developers have not only activated Segregated Witness or advanced the Lightning Network. They are working on things like Smart Contracts, Tokenized Assets or privacy on the Bitcoin blockchain. The latter is something very important. On the one hand, privacy is essentially one of the ideals of the cypher punks, on the other hand, it is only through this that the fungibility of Bitcoin can be increased. Even Bitcoin maximalists have to admit that crypto currencies like Monero that rely on anonymity are currently ahead of the game. It is understandable that the Bitcoin community wants to catch up here. This share was first found by us on February 03, 2019 11:47 PM. Have a look at decentralpost.com to find more similar content.

7 Reasons Why That New Bitcoin Stablecoin Sounds Like Junk 7 Reasons Why That New Bitcoin Stablecoin Sounds Like Junk
A new Ethereum token called ?Wrapped Bitcoin? just launched Thursday. The purpose of the new cryptocurrency is to enable Bitcoin users to ?participate in Ethereum smart contracts natively on the Ethereum blockchain.? Last October Bitcoin custody company BitGo announced a partnership with Kyber Network and Republic Protocol to launch Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), a token on the Ethereum blockchain that acts as a 1-to-1 token backed by Bitcoin reserves. In a blog post announcing the new token BitGo stated: ?WBTC users will be able to utilize Bitcoin in a wide variety of new decentralized use cases, including on decentralized exchanges (DEXs), as collateral for stable coins or lending, for payments and flexible smart contracts within the Ethereum ecosystem.?

Guaidó, who has said he is now the country?s president, has faced multiple challenges to his authority from the established government and international allies such as Russia.

The reports of bitcoin environmental damage are garbage The reports of bitcoin environmental damage are garbage
I have a background in electricity, from when I was an investment banker. I worked in a Natural Resources & Power group for about 8 years and modelled electricity systems and assets in the UK and China in the context of acquisitions, capital raisings, restructurings, and regulatory submissions. One of the banks that I worked for was HSBC, in their emerging markets M&A team, and I know China well. The models, created in groups, were used to support perhaps $4?5 billion equivalent of transactions, including public tender offers, acquisition finance, syndicated loans, and bond sales. The only time I went back to my old business school for course work was for modules offered by Decision Sciences, one of which was an in-depth power systems dynamics course. The financial models were built using @Risk statistical software to apply a distribution shape to inputs. When I left investment banking, I purchased (with partners) an electricity business in Italy that had eight run-of-river hydro plants and two CCGT facilities.

How Bitcoin Could Help Iran Undermine U.S. Sanctions - The New York Times How Bitcoin Could Help Iran Undermine U.S. Sanctions - The New York Times
TEHRAN ? Stepping from a car into a muddy industrial site in the Iranian desert, a 22-year old European Bitcoin investor raised his voice to be heard over the roar of a gas-fired generator. His Iranian counterparts ? a bespectacled information-technology specialist, a self-described ??hard-core Bitcoiner?? and the businessman running the site ? walked their foreign visitor over to gray shipping containers containing thousands of small computers. When completed and connected to the power grid, the computers would help process a cryptocurrency that, in theory at least, could enable Iran to evade United States sanctions.

The Anatomy Of A Breakout The Anatomy Of A Breakout
Analysing breakout patterns is used as a market strategy for many investors in the cryptocurrency space. A breakout occurs when, after many attempts by the seller to lower the price of the coin, they agree to sell at the buyer?s higher price. This then causes the price of a coin breaks through a key resistance level, which is the level at which the price of a coin is impeded by an overwhelming level of supply. At this level, investors are unwilling to pay a higher price for the coin. When a breakout occurs, the price of the coin generally spikes upwards, as investors realise that the price of the coin can rise higher. This post was retrieved by us on January 29, 2019 3:51 AM.
