Bitcoin mining difficulty is now down 31.5% from all-time highs, but hash rate is ticking upwards. Difficulty readjustment is absolutely genius. Bitcoin mining difficulty is now down 31.5% from all-time highs, but hash rate is ticking upwards. Difficulty readjustment is absolutely genius.
by Brian Curran | Dec 21, 2018 at 12:40 Bitcoins mining difficulty recently dropped roughly 32 percent in the last month following an extended bear market throughout 2018. As miners continue to shut down due to unprofitability, those who remain mining will be rewarded with increased BTC accumulation (less competition), but the low prices may still preclude profits from most mining operations. However, Bitcoin and the broader cryptocurrency markets have been making a recent surge in prices over the last several days, with Bitcoin surpassing $4,000 last night. Whether or not the momentum can be sustained and lure more miners back to the ecosystem is yet to be seen. This posting was obtained by us on 2018-12-21 15:42:16.

TRONBet now does over $3 million in daily tx volume! TRONBet now does over $3 million in daily tx volume!
by Brian Curran | Dec 6, 2018 at 20:27 Decentralized applications (dapps) are one of the primary focuses of smart contracts platforms and provide a glimpse into the adoption of specific platforms among users. Smart contracts platforms are facing daunting scaling challenges like Ethereum , arose out of the desire for more scalable applications, such as EOS, or are still under active research and development. Each smart contracts platform offers unique advantages and is hindered by explicit trade-offs in platform design. The dapps that run on top of them will ultimately determine the success or failure of the platforms as they attract new users and build a social consensus around the platform's ecosystem.

The game fund is called TRON Arcade and will invest up to $100 million in blockchain gaming development over the next 3 years. The announcement follows TRON's dapp update claiming increasing adoption of the platform by dapps and users. CoinPayments also recently integrated TRX, BNB, and BTC payments into BitTorrent for Pro and Ad-free products. TRON has emphasized both content distribution and dapp gaming since launching. The TRON Arcade fund is a sizeable incentive for developers to have their projects funded. TRON's primary market is in Asia too, one of the hubs for gaming, particularly e-sports.

by Brian Curran | Nov 29, 2018 at 22:50 Analyzing blockchain transactions and deriving definitive conclusions is a notoriously challenging task, considering both the general noise of the data and the nuances of determining which transactions are output change (i.e., UTXO blockchains) and the effect of exchanges on the transaction metrics. However, over the last couple of years, several on-chain analytics metrics, blockchain data analysis tools, and rankings site have emerged that provide a clearer albeit still inconclusive picture of transaction patterns in various blockchains. By integrating transaction metrics with narratives of specific cryptocurrencies, as well as their technical capabilities and user adoption, we can begin to better understand which are top cryptocurrencies used for payments.

Bitcoin hash rate is down almost 50% from ATH Bitcoin hash rate is down almost 50% from ATH
by Brian Curran | Nov 24, 2018 at 02:21 Bitcoins hash rate has been slowly declining throughout November, mirroring similar levels in early August this year. Currently, the hash rate is roughly 40,349,974 TH/s after rebounding from a 4-month low of approximately 34,727,437 TH/s. The declining hast rate is the steepest decline in the legacy cryptocurrencys history, dropping nearly 44 percent from its all-time high in late August 2018. Bitcoin's hash rate has historically correlated fairly closely to price movements. The recent downturn in Bitcoin's price is reflected in the sharp decline in the hash rate. Further, mining profits have been reduced with increasing competition and decreasing prices. The difficulty has also appropriately declined in parallel with the decreasing hash rate.

by Brian Curran | Nov 17, 2018 at 00:31 The SEC released a press release today detailing the settlement of civil penalties imposed on 2 completed ICOs Airfox and Paragon , signaling a transition in the SEC's emphasis on regulating completed ICOs. As part of the settlement, both Airfox and Paragon have agreed to pay $250k in fines, register their tokens as securities, file periodic reports with the SEC, and return investors funds. After much speculation about how the SEC would approach ICOs particularly already completed token sales their strategy is beginning to take shape. The settlement follows the first non-fraud ICO registration case by the SEC, Munchee Inc. This post was first seen by us on 2018-11-17 03:34:16.

Goodbye Craig Wright! Bitcoin ABC now controls 5x more hash power than Bitcoin SV Goodbye Craig Wright! Bitcoin ABC now controls 5x more hash power than Bitcoin SV
by Brian Curran | Nov 16, 2018 at 01:03 Bitcoin Cash has split into Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC today following the community rift led by Craig Wright (Bitcoin SV) and Roger Ver (Bitcoin ABC) that had escalated in the days leading up to the hard fork. It remains unclear which protocol will become the more dominant secondary Bitcoin and whether or not they will remain sustainable at all. Following the fork, several developments emerged. The last shared block between Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC on the original Bitcoin Cash chain was block 556,776 that was mined by SVPool. Bitcoin ABC's split included a number of updates to the protocol, but the general idea behind the ABC camp is that BCH does not need a radical overhaul. The ABC stands for Adjustable Blocksize Cap, and Bitcoin ABC is currently leading Bitcoin SV in hash rate. This share was discovered by us on 2018-11-16 04:08:25.
