The Thai government attempts to hack into ZCoin founder's email account
The founder of ZCoin platform, Poramin Insom, has shared that the Google alert system has notified him of an attempt by Thai government to hack his e-mail box. On Friday, Poramin Insom wrote in a Facebook post sharing with his followers that a special Google service had notified him about an attempt of Thai government-backed hackers to get at his e-mail box. He also wrote that this may have been a reaction of the Thai authorities to Insom?s participation in the recent government?s failure to control the actions of local dissidents. Take a look at the Facebook posting in the picture below: Quite similar to China, censorship within Thailand is strong, the dissatisfied are prosecuted almost immediately. Last year, a local rap band dubbed ?Rap Against Dictatorship? made a same-name single that heavily criticized the Thai government: corruptions among its members, censorship, and other aspects of its ruling. The video quickly became viral on YouTube, getting over 30 mln views in less than a month.

OzCoin Hacked, Stolen Funds Seized and Returned by StrongCoin | Bitcoin Magazine Group 3 social-facebook social-twitter
Ready to start building Dapps? Dive deep into blockchain development. Subscribe Now OzCoin, one of the larger Bitcoin mining pools, has reported that an unknown attacker managed to hack into their server, defacing their website and database and stealing 923 BTC ($135,000) from their Bitcoin wallet. However, in less than a day over half of the money was seized as it was passing through the web wallet StrongCoin, and promptly returned to Ozcoin. 354.06 BTC are still missing, and will likely never be found, but this nevertheless leaves OzCoin with a much softer blow than what anyone expected. Although most people agree with StrongCoin?s actions, this is nevertheless a very worrying sign for the security and privacy of StrongCoin, and other web wallets by extension. StrongCoin is what is often called a hybrid web wallet, accessible as a website on the internet but doing all of the transaction signing and address management in Javascript on the client side. Essentially, the client is downloading a fresh version of the wallet software from StrongCoin each time, and from that point, in theory, the software becomes just as secure as any other client-side program. The user?s wallet data, including the private keys needed to sign transactions, is backed up on StrongCoin?s servers, but it is encrypted and decrypted client-side using the user?s password so, once again in theory, there should be no way for StrongCoin themselves to get hold of the user?s private keys. StrongCoin heavily advertises this feature; on the website?s front page, they write: ?Therefore our servers only hold encrypted private keys and neither we nor anyone else can spend your Bitcoins. Only you.? Except they just did.

Zcoin Releases Academic Paper on Lelantus Protocol to Tackle Privacy Blockchain Issues
Some of the challenges faced by privacy blockchains include scalability and useability. Yet, one privacy coin believes it has the answer to solving these with its new protocol. Zcoin, which in November had a Thai song added to its blockchain to fight censorship and government corruption, has released an academic paper for its Lelantus protocol. It is due to be deployed in 2019. Created by Zcoin, which is focused on delivering privacy and anonymity for its users, the aim of the protocol is to fix the issues that privacy blockchains face. In an announcement, Reuben Yap, COO of Zcoin, said: ?Current privacy protocols need to be improved. Most require tradeoffs on either scalability, anonymity, ease of use or they are underprinned by experimental cryptography. We created Lelantus to tackle these issues and offer a well-rounded solution to users.?

Great for GPU miners: "Zcoin Implements ASIC Resistant Merkle Tree Proof (MTP) Crypto Mining"
Zcoin is implementing a new mining algorithm that hampers FPGA, ASIC, and botnet mining. Merkle Tree proof of work (MTP) has the potential to move cryptocurrency mining away from huge farms and back into the hands of crypto enthusiasts, once again decentralizing mining. Merkle Tree proof of work mining is a solution implemented to remedy the issues faced by small-time miners. Most mining algorithms are susceptible to FPGAs and ASICs, mining hardware which is far more efficient than readily available computer hardware. Usually, this hardware is only available to huge corporations whose engineer can design better hardware. On Dec. 10th Zcoin will implement this new algorithm.
