district0x Dev Update - November 27th, 2018 district0x
With the recent Thanksgiving holiday keeping a few of our American service providers out with family and friends, the past two weeks have been a slow grind towards the testnet deployments of the District Registry, Meme Factory, and the district0x Tasks app we mentioned in our previous update. This has lead to a series of devops challenges across our applications in development, and has given us a unique opportunity to identify pain points and experiment with architectures that might avoid these hangups for future projects. As detailed in our last post, Meme Factory development has been focused on final improvements for the DANK faucet. This includes, among other things, better error logging and handling of all negative code paths, in addition to testing token transfers directly and hashing phone numbers within the browser. After battling some compatibility issues caused by using Ganache, we are now focused on documenting the entirety of the faucet for developers and operations staff alike.

Craig Wright Says Bitcoin SV To Handle 1000x More Transactions than All 'Blockchains' & PayPal
Craig Steven Wright, a prominent Australian computer scientist who is currently focused on the ongoing development of Bitcoin ?Satoshi Vision? (SV), recently shared with CryptoGlobe some of his views and insights regarding how a peer-to-peer electronic cash system should work. Wright, who has worked with the Australian Securities Exchange and giant retail store K-mart, told us that his long-term vision for the Bitcoin SV protocol is similar to that which is outlined in ?the original Bitcoin protocol.? When questioned about which specific areas he would want to see developed and adopted as more features are added to the Bitcoin SV protocol, Wright said: This share was retrieved by us on November 26, 2018 9:06 PM.

Report shows that crypto bounty hunting is quickly becoming a new viable career path.
?Bounty hunter? has traditionally referred to a person who captures fugitives for a reward. The term is likely to conjure images of the American Old West rather than the Wild West that cryptocurrency is today, but there are significant amounts of people earning digital assets by performing small to medium-sized tasks for budding tech companies. Some people are even able to make a living by doing these tasks full time. Whether this is your introduction to crypto bounty hunting, or you?ve already claimed a few bounties yourself, this article aims to shed some light on this emerging skilled marketplace, outline some of the risks, and steer potential hunters in a direction that?s profitable for both them and the company they?re working for.

Ethereum s Serenity: A Potential ~10x Increase In Demand For Gas and Increasing Scarcity Could Both Drive ETH s Price Higher [51 Percent Research]
Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be. Serenity is the next iteration of Ethereum. It is a major shift to a markedly advanced platform packed with foundational improvements to power the future of the most prominent programmable public blockchain. Ethereum is a Turing complete platform, able to execute any code as written given enough computational resources. Net, we expect Serenity will lead to a collapse in the price of transactions and much higher throughput, which will ultimately drive wider adoption of DApps. This will drive an increase in demand for gas (gas is the network computation and is paid for with ETH) and increasing scarcity for ETH (as ETH is locked up for staking), both of which could be positive for the value of ETH.

The District Weekly November 24th, 2018 district0x
This past week, district0x teamed up with the Non-fungible Alliance. The Non-fungible Alliance is a community centered around projects, developers, enterprise solutions, and service providers within the ERC-721 Non-Fungible Token space. The ERC-721 standard is a core technology that will be used within Meme Factory, and allows for digital assets to be provably rare. Due to the holidays in the US, some of the initiatives outlined in the previous District Weekly have been put on hold. Specifically, the self assigned roles for talent pools and the tip bot functionality. This coming week we will conduct further testing of the tipbot and complete the talent pool setup. Once this transition is complete we will enable the tipping functionality so the community can earn, send, receive and tip DNT all within the Discord working groups.

First Mineable ERC20 Token: An Interview with Brandon Grill from the 0xBitcoin Foundation on Altcoin Magazine
Hello, Emil, happy to be here! 0xBitcoin is a project that I?m very passionate about, and I?m always excited to discuss the token and the crypto scene in general. 0xBitcoin is an incredibly unique ERC-20 token deployed in February of 2018 by a developer who goes by the handle Infernal_Toast. Toast, who is a huge supporter of the Bitcoin currency and the Ethereum network, was frustrated by the limitations of both platforms. He recognized the usefulness of Ethereum?s smart contract capabilities but did not consider Ether (ETH) to be nearly as appropriate of a currency as Bitcoin (BTC). The problem, he determined, was the centralization of asset distribution that arose from the ICO model of fundraising. His solution was simple yet groundbreaking: introduce PoW mining to Ethereum-based tokens. He eventually created 0xBitcoin, the first mineable ERC-20 token in existence.

0x Ecosystem, Project Spotlight Dharma Brent Oshiro
Last month, I was fortunate to have been able to travel to San Francisco and participate in SF Blockchain week. While the events of the week were certainly exciting, especially the ETHSF Hackathon, one of the highlights of my trip was having the opportunity to chat with Brendan Forster (@bpforster24), Head of Growth Operations at Dharma. Similar to 0x, which was developed as an open standard to facilitate the frictionless global exchange of tokenized assets, Dharma is a open protocol that seeks to provide a common, secure infrastructure that will enable the ?decentralized origination, underwriting, issuance, and administration of tokenized debt assets.? (Hollander, 2017) As someone who has always been interested in the concept of peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, Dharma immediately caught my attention. Having learned more about the project since then, and especially after my conversation with Brendan, it?s clear that P2P lending is just the tip of the iceberg. Dharma aims to disrupt many traditional debt-related use cases in the shorter-term, and even more exciting than that, will likely enable the creation of completely new ones in the future.

Bounty0x kickstarts their 'Sheriff' staking network on in 4 days
After 3 months of beta testing, Bounty0x is now ready to roll out its Sheriff staking feature to the public. Bounty programs have grown exponentially after last year?s ICO rush as a cost-efficient tool to access cheap, if not free, pools of talent. Participants are incentivised to perform several tasks for ICO projects by earning digital assets issued to cryptocurrency primary markets. Bounties often include digital marketing tasks including content dissemination, social media shares or influencer marketing and are therefore a great way for token sales to bootstrap their community and attract prospective investors.

Bounty0x launches first BNTY staking functionality | Oracle Times
Bounty0x, a cryptocurrency bounty hunting platform with 50k+ active users, just announced the launch of its first BNTY token staking functionality. On November 23rd 2018, anyone will be able to stake BNTY tokens to review submissions made by Bounty Hunters. This functionality is called ?Bounty Sheriff staking?. Bounty Sheriffs stake BNTY on Bounty0x to earn tokens by reviewing submissions made by Bounty Hunters. If a correct review is made, the Sheriff receives a small fee. If an incorrect review is made, the BNTY staked to that submission is permanently lost. Bounty Sheriff staking is a crucial component of the Bounty0x Platform because it enables for the trustless verification of task completion, meaning that no central party is needed to review work. This is a breakthrough in how to think about the completion of tasks and the reviewing of submitted work. This item was found by us on November 19, 2018 8:52 AM. See oracletimes.com for more.
Bounty0x Sheriff Staking Full Launch
Bounty Sheriff staking is one of the core features of the Bounty0x platform. It enables a self-sufficient ecosystem where submitted work is automatically reviewed by thousands of Bounty Sheriffs, who stake BNTY to get the right of making the review. During the Bounty Sheriff staking Beta phase in the past 3 months, a select group of approximately 50 Sheriffs was actively using the feature, helping us to find bugs, and suggesting improvements. We are now finally ready to roll-out Bounty Sheriff staking to everyone. The full launch of Bounty Sheriff staking will happen on November 23rd, 2018. Bounty Sheriffs stake BNTY on Bounty0x to earn tokens by reviewing submissions made by Bounty Hunters. If a correct review is made, the Sheriff receives a small fee in the Bounty Host?s token. If an incorrect review is made, the BNTY staked to that submission is permanently lost. This share was discovered by us on November 18, 2018 3:16 PM.

The District Weekly November 17th, 2018 district0x
This past week we released our bi-weekly Dev Update covering Meme Factory, the District Registry, d0xTasks, and Ethlance. Overall, with the exception of Ethlance (already launched), we are busy pushing all other dApps to a public Testnet as soon as possible to wrap up QA. Thanks to our Ambassador and previous stream guest Luke Parker (Kayaba), we have transitioned all community rewards to an open source bot that he created and helped us deploy. With his efforts, we can now distribute DNT in a more fun and engaging way. This month?s rewards are still in the process of transitioning over to this new bot and the rewards form will no longer be used. Keep in mind that this bot can only be used in the rewards channel found in Discord. The commands for the bot can be found by typing !help in the rewards channel.

0x announces 1-min setup for relayers via simple launching kit
Irrespective of the bearish market 0x launched a Relayer Kit that can be integrated under a minute to a project. Although the token fell a few points down, looks like the technical team gave ZRX a better chance. On 16th November, 0x announced the launch of its Relayer Kit, which will simplify 0x integration to add decentralised token trading to a project. The kit is launch-able under 60 secs and solves the issues related to time-consuming. 0x [ZRX] has been the centre of attention in the altcoin community since the beginning of 2018. The 0x token is recognised as an ?Open Protocol? for decentralised exchange and is based on the Ethereum blockchain. Although the bear has attacked the market and bulls look low, the token has managed to woo its users by releasing an easy-to-built extensible 0x relayer codebase.

Introducing the 0x Launch Kit 0x Protocol
Launch a relayer in under a minute. Get started here. We are excited to release the 0x Launch Kit! The Kit includes a simple, extensible 0x relayer codebase that can be forked or used as reference material as you create your own marketplace. If you?re new to working with Ethereum, developing on 0x from scratch can be challenging and time-consuming. The Launch Kit addresses these issues and simplifies 0x integration by dramatically reducing the effort needed to add decentralized token trading to your project. We like to draw an analogy between 0x Launch Kit and WordPress. WordPress is free, open-source software that can be used off-the-shelf to easily set up a blog and has allowed millions of publishers to flourish. However, large publishers like The New York Times or BuzzFeed need more functionality than WordPress provides, and build custom solutions to suit their needs. 0x Launch Kit is perfect for dApp developers that just want simple trade functionality, while more sophisticated teams can build custom solutions to fit their use cases.

Mineable ERC20 tokens now exist thanks to EIP 918
This is a submitted sponsored story. CCN urges readers to conduct their own research with due diligence into the company, product or service mentioned in the content below. Kickstarting Ethereum with ERC-20 and ERC-721 Ethereum is arguably one of the most ground-breaking technologies of recent years. It was the first-mover in providing innovative new standards for data-transfer and governance, and like many top-tier blockchains, it has the potential to disrupt almost every industry in the world. However, the vast range of fungible ERC-20 (all tokens within a contract are equal) and non-fungible ERC-721 (each token is unique) tokens created on Ethereum lack one critical hallmark of the original and most valuable blockchain product: Bitcoin. They function poorly as stores of value and therefore as digital commodities. The same is true of Ethereum?s native asset, ETH. As gas, it?s designed to turn the cogs of the network, providing essential utility. But functioning as a commodity? Not so much? This article was first found by us on November 16, 2018 5:48 PM.

What is cryptocurrency margin trading - a complete guide to multiply your earnings
While all trading requires some form of price speculation, margin trading involves more than speculations. The predictions with margin trades are made with borrowed funds, usually called leverage. The margin, which means ?pledge,? now serves as a security/collateral for the leverage. With this leverage, traders can buy and sell as many cryptocurrencies as possible, several times, using their margin, plus the borrowed funds. The profit, from a successful trade, is calculated based on the total funds, leverage, and margin in all. Let?s have a practical outlook on a margin trade done by Cindy Cindy, a trader at PrimeXBT, has a Bitcoin deposit worth 700 USD, at the time. From her observations and analysis, she is confident the price of Bitcoin is going to grow significantly. This information was found by us on November 15, 2018 9:08 PM.

Digital Cash 2.0 and a New Method of Issuance
Bitcoin has often been described as Gold 2.0 and Digital Gold (1.0). In his whitepaper, Satoshi Nakamoto, did the world a great service by laying the foundation for a digital cash revolution. However, this foundation isn?t without its flaws. As we saw during Bitcoin Mania last winter, Bitcoin has issues with scalability. When everybody and their brother rushed to get their hands on some Bitcoin, the network became wildly congested. This led to extremely expensive and slow transactions. This is a major problem for a system that claims to be digital cash (Note: a large portion of the community now deems Bitcoin as Digital Gold instead of Digital Cash for the aforementioned reasons).

Ethereum Token Pure Mined with SHA3 - 0xBTC - CryptoMoonShots
This project is totally permissionless and trustless, there is no central team or monarch even though it is an ERC20 token, and so that is what makes it pretty strange. Basically 0xBTC is the first pure-mined cryptocurrency that adheres to the ERC20 token protocol. This means that it is the ONLY pure mined currency that works in the Ethereum network, with DEXes, with smart contracts, with everything that is compatible with tokens. This includes the Ledger nano, Metamask, dapps, all of that. Pretty darn cool and extremely unique. There is nothing even close to this. Anyone can download the miner and start mining and there are even a few true mining pools. Difficulty adjusts and distribution occurs on a schedule very similar to bitcoin; it has 3M of 21M tokens mined so far and was launched in February 2018. The first halvening is in 2022.
