Hacked Cryptopia Crypto Wallet Moves 30,789 ETH ($4.2M) to Unknown Wallet Owner
Cryptopia has had a rough year so far. A major hack and a longtime delay in relaunching their services have undoubtedly shaken investors and the staff themselves. Now, in a new tweet from Twitter user Whale Alert, it appears that a massive transfer has taken place in ETH from the same wallets that were involved in the massive attack on the Cryptopia exchange several months ago. 30,789 #ETH (4,288,847 USD) transferred from Cryptopia Hack to Unknown wallet Whale Alert (@whale_alert) March 29, 2019 The specific transaction in question involves a wallet named Cryptopia: Hack 2, which transferred 30,789 ETH to an unknow wallet address. The wallet has already seen 27 transactions, with most of them being received funds transactions that have occurred as recently as 32 days ago. However, there are two transactions that happened today within almost an hour of each other.

A good explanation on the purpose of the 'data' field when you send a transaction - Medium
You may have noticed that when interacting with a smart contract (e.g., sending tokens), your transaction automatically contains input data. On MyCrypto, this is simply labeled Data - but what does it do In this article, you'll find a technical explanation of transaction input data, including what it is and how it works. Let's start off by taking a look at this token transaction. A person sent zero ETH to 0xd26114cd6ee289accf82350c8d8487fedb8a0c07 (the OmiseGO contract address), and Etherscan reveals it was a transaction for about 0.19 OMG tokens to this address. So how did the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) know that this person wanted to transfer this amount of tokens to another address

Ethereum game rewards players with $20,000; Battle for gamers rages between Ethereum, EOS, Tron
World of Ether is back with their new announcement. They're giving $11,000 in ETH to the first player to discover the Life Legendary monster. This is on top of the existing $6,000 on the Sun Legendary monster, and the thousands of dollars of rewards that were already paid to players. With crypto winter in full swing, a stunt like this is breath of fresh warm air. Many projects are going bust, not giving their users what was promised, and not delivering. World of Ether has done what other projects have not done- delivered. The developers delivered a game with a custom soundtrack, non-autogenerated artwork, and fine tuned game mechanics. Playing suggests a positive future for what these crypto based games may eventually do.

Crypto Analysts Bullish on Ethereum (ETH) As Constantinople Hard Fork Is Nigh ? Bitcoin Isle
Just days ago, per previous reports from Ethereum World News, the market capitalization of Ether (ETH) surpassed that of XRP, as the asset surged by double-digit percentage points in a day's time. The crypto asset has since taken a large leg up over Ripples go-to asset, but a number of analysts have claimed that ETH will only continue to run in the near future, especially as exchanges, like OkEX and Binance, continue to overtly profess their support for the Constantinople hard fork. For those who are unaware, the Constantinople hard fork is a blockchain upgrade that will implement five improvement protocols into Ethereums blockchain. Four are focusing on short-term scaling, while the other is centered around reducing Ether issuance from three ETH to two ETH a block. A leading cryptoanalyst, Alex Krüger, has claimed that in the long run, the so-called block reward thirdening will be decidedly bullish.

This Is Why Ethereum Will Double in Value This Year
Ethereum is on the cusp of major catalysts that will improve efficiency, lower transaction fees, increase scalability, and drive ETH to new highs. What am I talking about Upgrades and hardforks and the Constantinople hardfork specifically. Constantinople, the second phase of the Metropolis Upgrade, follows last year's Byzantium fork which was unanimously accepted by the mining community. The Constantinople fork is designed to increase efficiency and lower transaction fees. Along with that developers think it could also aid in scalability, the ability to handle a growing volume of work, which is the number one problem with blockchain systems today. The real bonus is that Constantinople will be performed sometime in late October, before the implementation of Sharding and Plasma.

The value of Ethereum (ETH) is rising in the build-up to Constantinople.
News portal sharing opinions and ideas related to blockchain and cryptocurrency-based economy. BITCOIN BLOCK REWARD HALVING COUNTDOWN The crypto market is riding a green wave with Ethereum, EOS, Tron, and Maker at the forefront. The value of Ethereum (ETH) is rising in the build-up to Constantinople. The upgrade is expected to happen tomorrow, on January 16. However, the date could change by one or two days, since it actually depends on block times. Constantinople is scheduled to take place at block number 7,080,000. You can check the countdown timer here. The upgrade will reduce mining rewards from 3 ETH to 2 ETH per block. This means it will be more expensive to mine Ethereum from now on, which is bad news for miners. On the other hand, it also means reduced future supply, which is good news for investors.

Ethereum Nowa (ETN) and Ethereum Classic Vision (ETCV) Hard Forks Identified as Possible Scams
The two additional hard forks of Ethereum Nowa (ETN) and Ethereum Classic Vision (ETCV) have come under scrutiny after reports emerged that both are taking the private keys of users trying to redeem the additional coins. They then use the private keys to empty out the wallets of those seeking to participate in the airdrops. The ETCV hard fork was meant to take place yesterday, 11th January whereas the ETN hard fork was scheduled for today, January 12th. In the case of Ethereum Nowa, there were stern words of caution on the BitcoinTalk forum warning that the fork was fraudulent and had a fake team. The photos of the team members had allegedly been sourced from Shutterstock. The project's website is also suspicious in that it requests users who want the airdrop, to send some ETH to a specific address and then export their private keys to a new ETN wallet.

The Constantinople Hard Fork: What You Need to Know
Constantinople is the name of Ethereums next hard fork system upgrade. It is part of the multi-step journey towards Serenity, which implements revolutionary protocols such as Proof of Stake. On December 6th, 2018, the Ethereum core developers voted to proceed with Constantinople, which will be implemented at block 7,080,000. With an average block time of ~14.5 seconds, that puts the estimated date of the Constantinople hard fork at January 16th, 2019. But doesn't a hard fork mean a currency split Not necessarily. One of the most highly publicized hard forks in Ethereum's history was the hard fork that occurred after the DAO hack and restored the stolen ETH to the original owners. Because that hard fork was unplanned and contentious, the community split between those who supported the restoration of funds (Ethereum) and those who rejected it on grounds of immutability (Ethereum Classic). Uncontentious hard forks, however, have happened in Ethereum's history to implement upgrades without currency splits, including Homestead and Byzantium. Because the Ethereum community at large expects and supports the Constantinople hard fork, the token consequences as seen in the ETH/ETC hard fork are not expected.

Two Alleged Ethereum ?Scam Forks? Appropriating Users? Private Keys, Report Finds
Ethereum Nowa and Ethereum Classic Vision are reportedly appropriating the private keys of users trying to redeem the allegedly forked coins. The private keys of users are reportedly being stolen by the Ethereum Nowa and Ethereum Classic Vision projects, according to a report Altcoins Ethereum Nowa (ETN) and Ethereum Classic Vision (ETCV) are reportedly appropriating the private keys of users trying to redeem their allegedly forked coins. The suspected scam was covered in a report sent to Cointelegraph by the Guarda Wallet development team on Jan. 11. The official website of the Ethereum Nowa project which doesn't contain a white paper describes the process that users are supposed to engage in to obtain ETN. According to the website, the user should first send ETH to an address, and then export the private key and redeem the cryptocurrency using the dedicated online tool.

The Thirdening: What You Need To Know
On December 6th, 2018, the Ethereum core dev team decided to move forward with the Constantinople hard fork. The update will be implemented at the 7,080,000 block, which is estimated to occur on January 16th, 2019. You can read about Constantinople here. Constantinople will implement five Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP). One of those proposals is EIP 1234, which includes an adjustment to block rewards. Currently, when a block is successfully mined on the Ethereum blockchain, the miner receives 3 ETH as a reward. After Constantinople, miners will receive 2 ETH per block as a reward. This reduction from 3 ETH to 2 ETH is a reward adjustment of -33%, hence the Thirdening.

Is Ethereum mining close to unprofitable ? | Chepicap
You will be logged out and redirected to the homepage Thank you for signing up! After confirming via email you can immediately use your account and comment on the Chepicap news items! Have fun! In response to Ethereums new update EIP 1234, Ethereum miners are thinking of boycotting Ethereum mining. Ethereum's new update EIP 1234 reduces the block reward from 3 ETH to 2 ETH. With the drop in the value of Ethereum, speculations of an even bigger Ethereum dump and the reduced block rewards.. many miners are anxious.  Welp, 5 days later and all but the lowest electricity cost miners are priced out under EIP-1234. This is fun.

Ethereum developers set January date for Constantinople upgrade - The Block
Core developers plan to activate Constantinople, one of Ethereum's largest upgrades to date, on January 16, 2019.  The upgrade aims at increasing the efficiency of the Ethereum blockchain while decreasing the mining rewards from 3 ETH to 2 ETH per block. Constantinople was originally planned for release in November of this year. However, issues on the testnet release forced developers to delay the upgrade. (Source: CoinDesk) © 2019 The Block.

Ethereum Short-Selling Spikes to All Time High
Ethereum shorts have almost doubled in the past two days from about 160,000 eth to now 307,000, some 27,000 above its previous all time high on September 18th. Back then, ethereum shorts fell from 280,000 to just 100,000 on September 22nd. To then go on and triple in just three weeks. That's close to a reverse mirror of ethereums price action. It fell between September 17th-18th to a local bottom, with shorts so reaching the then all-time high (ATH). Price then rose up to September 22nd, with shorts so closing. Then there was some sideways movement until this Thursday when eth suddenly fell, so sending shorts spiking to all time high.

EOS Just Sent $120 Million Worth of Eth to Bitfinex
Conclusive evidence that EOS has sent 200,000 eth to Bitfinex has now been provided by the ethereum public blockchain. The EOS crowdsale smart contract has now finally been drained with just $1 million worth of eth left there at the time of writing. The year long ICO is to finally end at around 11PM London time, which translates to late afternoon in America and very early morning in Asia. Around that time or soon after the EOS blockchain is to launch, but rather than being busy with those preparations, the company behind EOS, block.one, is seemingly instead busy with moving millions in eth. That's the EOS Crowdsale address. All of its money moves to an address tagged EOS owner, which starts with 9937. That address in turn currently has 737,000 eth ($432 million).

Binance Moves One Million ETH
One of the biggest crypto exchange has sent ethereums days destroyed spiking after moving 988,888 just now, worth about $204 million, for a fee of 6 cents. We will be moving some funds between our cold wallets. A tell tale sign of a new cold wallet on Binance is two small transfers from and BACK TO an existing wallet, then a large transaction. No need to be alarmed. Funds are #SAFU, Changpeng Zhao, Binance's CEO, said yesterday. Why these funds are being moved is unclear, but after an in and out test transaction, 100,000 eth were sent to the new address and then 888,888. 8 being a lucky number in China, suggesting Zhao might have been a bit nervous while sending all this eth to the blockchain ether.

ENS .eth Domains Will Now Load IPFS Websites and Documents
A smart coder has come up with a very simple method to direct Ethereum Name Service (ENS) domains to IPFS addresses. So simple in fact Phyrex Tsai, a Taiwan based coder, describes it in just one sentence: Resolve from ENS Public Resolver getContent hash to IPFS hash, and redirect url to gateway.ipfs.io. With MetaMask installed, and once it is updated to include the above improvement, you then just type in something like trustnodes.eth and visit a website that is hosted, resolved and accessed in a decentralized way. The above was showcased in a video where he types phyrextsai.eth to then show the above page hosted on IPFS. He then shows the magic is real by typing testing.eth which gives an error as it hasn't been linked to an IPFS hash.
