Bitmain cutbacks claim another victimWormhole
Is Wormhole, the supposed game-changing project backed by Bitmain CEO Jihan Wu, is no longer auxiliary to the Chinese cryptocurrency mining company This week, reports surfaced that the Wormhole team has been disbanded and that the project is over. RIP @WormholeCash We will put you down as another casualty of Jihan. #YouSplitWe pic.twitter.com/SzTT2w17uQ Skylark_Cash (@skylark_cash) January 15, 2019 Jerry Chan, head of department at SBI Crypto Solutions, tweeted on Wednesday that a source has confirmed that Bitmain has cut it's entire @WormholeCash team. I have an inside source that also confirms that Bitmain has cut it's entire @WormholeCash team. Guess that's 80% of the reason why BCH wanted to split with BSV, gone. The other 20% are the anti-government anarchists. This share was first found by us on 2019-01-16 18:17:21.

How Bitcoin SV can power your passport
With Dr. Craig Wright's latest Medium post, we learned how patented nChain technology will create smarter, safer wallets using smart-card based technology and the Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain. Now, thanks to a blog post from nChain's Sebastian Pltzeneder that further explains the implications of this technology, we're starting to understand how it can also improve identification services, like passports and immigration. Using the same combination of the BSV blockchain, smart phone app, a smart-card and biometrics, Pltzeneder writes that the technology allows for greater ease of use and security in passports / personal identification cards, communication channels, payments, or file encryption. He breaks down the reasons why in five points. This entry was obtained by us on 2019-01-16 16:37:55. Share this content on social media: Related assets may include BTC, TCN.

Coingeek: "Unwriter unveils exclusive BitDB node on BSV"
Popular crypto developer Unwriter has introduced via a Medium post a new and exclusive BitDB node that runs on Bitcoin SV (BSV). Genesis, as the node is called, is an extension to existing BitDB nodes, which include both bitgraph.network and bitdb.network, and works exactly the same as the others, but with one exception. Unwriter explains that Genesis offers an entirely new behind-the-scenes architecture. This architecture is a result of lessons learned from several stress tests and will soon be made available as open-source software. Where the new node differs from others is in its address format. Genesis uses the original Bitcoin address format and not Bitcoin BCH's Cash Address format. This item was discovered by us on 2019-01-15 12:39:45.

Coingeek: "Smart-card based wallets for a smarter, more secure wallet"
Dr. Craig Wright, in his latest Medium post, has broken down the ever-evolving world of cryptocurrency wallets. There have been an endless supply of variations introduced over the past couple of years, each offering their own special tricks or characteristics, but they all have one common thread that ties them together security. In the post, Wright talks about smart-card based wallets and how these could and should- be the future of portable wallets. Wright points out that a smart-card application tied to a wallet can offer better security for crypto assets while also allowing for private system authentication. The chief scientist for nChain explains, We (nChain) have been awarded or granted a patent on the use of ECDSA [elliptic curve digital signature algorithm] as a means to securely share and create keys. The mechanism can be used to create a system that allows uses to authenticate to computers or to create a wallet-key store that can work with a smart card and a mobile phone to allow a single-use Bitcoin key that always updates the address.

Bitwise takes a stab at a crypto ETF in the US - CoinGeek
Despite the fact that the Winklevoss brothers and VanEck have had difficulty convincing the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to green-light their cryptocurrency exchange-traded funds (ETF), a new startup isn't deterred. Bitwise Asset Management is looking to introduce its own ETF, positive that its version appropriately addresses the commission's concerns and will find regulatory approval. In a registration form filed with the SEC, the Bitwise Bitcoin ETF Trust would track its Bitwise Bitcoin Total Return Index, which would be used to measure the value of Bitcoin Core (BTC), as well as any meaningful hard forks. The ETF would possibly be listed on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) Arca, an exchange that targets stocks and options other than large-cap stocks that are traded on the NYSE.

Bitcoin vs. Pokemon, who will catch em all
If you're looking for a fun way to pass some time or need to take a break from a hectic work schedule, this game is the perfect solution. At the very least, it's good for a few laughs. Bitcoin takes on Pokemon in a game that uses Bitcoin SV (BSV) to make moves as you gotta catch em all. The game can be found at bitcoinplayspokemon.com. Players pay less than $0.01 (1/10 of a penny, to be exact) to make a move by choosing a Money Button option up, down, right, left. The money is received as a donation to the site, with the game's developer stating, All proceeds are considered donations to maintain the site. I am not charging anyone to play the game but merely tying OP RETURN data in donations to keypresses. This was merely the result of an educational project for myself. The only donations that are monitored are Bitcoin SV donations. Please do NOT send [Bitcoin Core] or [Bitcoin BCH] to this address. Money Button does not allow for more than 25 chained unconfirmed transactions, if you get an error that says 400 Bad Request that is more than likely the culprit.

Coingeek: "Ryan X. Charles: Bitcoin SV can bring sound digital money to the entire world"
The founder of Money Button and Yours.org, Ryan X. Charles, believes that Bitcoin SV will be the fresh start the world of cryptocurrency needs after the damaging hash wars of the past couple of years: Sadly in many ways, we're back to square one from an adoption perspective, but at least we have lessons learned, intellectual capital and money available to actually do it right. Charles vision is of really radical adoption? in the next ten years. We're going to go from the toy phase and the experiment phase and the learning phase into the reality phase of actually applying this technology for real problems and real businesses and real customers in the real world.
