Justin Sun Responds To Binance CEO: We Have No Intention To Take Over Any Blockchain

Justin Sun Responds To Binance CEO: “We Have No Intention To Take Over Any Blockchain”

 

 

The battle between Justin Sun, the Tron Foundation CEO, and STEEM blockchain,

has taken yet another turn, this time the TRON boss responding ‘harshly’ to comments from Binance CEO, Changpeng “CZ” Zhao. This strike looks to be the first of many, in a battle that does not look set to end any time soon. Since purchasing Steemit.com in mid-February, a Reddit-like app, Sun has been targeted by the community who accuse him of planning to take over the STEEM blockchain forcefully. In the scheme of the attack, Binance, Huobi and Sun-owned Poloniex used users’ funds to vote for Justin’s “Witness” on the STEEM blockchain effectively giving him power over the network.

Why? Justin is looking to unlock the ninja-minted STEEM tokens (pre-mined tokens) he acquired once he purchased Steemit while the community plans a soft fork to preventing him to use these coins in any governance issues. However, following an outcry from the crypto Twitter community, Binance and Huobi withdrew their votes and the relationship between Justin and CZ has soured since.

CZ calls out Justin Sun: “Transparency works”

CZ spewed a number of tweets on the issue over the past week explaining Binance was unaware of they were participating in a governance dispute.

He explained,

“My internal team said it was a necessary network upgrade, so I said go ahead […] If it is not a unanimous network upgrade, then we don’t want to use our users’ funds to participate in a vote. So as soon as we got the feedback, on Twitter no less, we immediately withdrew the vote.”

While news have spread of a personal relationship between the two Founders, CZ said the two have a

“strictly work relationship”.

“I didn’t really know Justin until he started Tron, and have only met him a couple times at events after that. We have only talked business, and haven’t really “hung out” in any way.”

CZ also called out the Steemit CEO asking him to be more transparent in his dealing in future.

He said,

“I told him already directly, explain what you are trying to do to the community and get support first, then do it. Transparency works.”

Justin Sun responds: “We have no intention to take over any blockchain”

The statement from Binance CEO stipulates Sun may have tried to take over a blockchain — a claim the Tron boss vehemently denied. Replying to the article by CT on Twitter,

Sun wrote,

“I believe the point here is about sanctity of private property. We have no intention to take over any blockchain.”

Sun further bashed the planned soft fork stating he will not allow the ninja-minted tokens to be frozen — even by consensus by the community — as it violates the investors’ safety of the tokens.

He continued,

“But we won’t allow anyone to freeze innocent people hard earned money even by “consensus”. Anyone assets including exchanges assets should be safe!”

Massive Growth In Bitcoin ATM’s As Tally Climbs Above 6000

Massive Growth In Bitcoin ATM’s As Tally Climbs Above 6,000

The number of bitcoin ATMs worldwide climbed above 6,000 for the first time in 2020.

  • ATM firm Bitcoin Depot recently announced that its installations totaled more than 500, making it the largest provider in the world.

  • Bitcoin ATMs will help fuel adoption, but they also suffer from fraud and privacy issues.

The number of bitcoin ATM’s worldwide has skyrocketed above the 6,000 mark according to data out of Coin ATM Radar. Crypto ATM installation growth sports a chart almost similar to that of bitcoin. The parabolic move kicks off the new decade buoyed by a February 6th press release from Bitcoin Depot.Bitcoin ATM’s climb above 6,000 in 2020 | Source: Coin ATM Radar. The Atlanta-based firm announced it had surpassed over 500 ATM’s making it the largest network on the planet. Over a fifth of those can be found in Atlanta alone.

CEO Brandon Mintz told PRNewswire:

With more than 500 ATMs across 30 states, and more than 100 of those right here in our own backyard, we are significantly outpacing others in the industry.

Bitcoin Depot Claims the Number One Ranking

The announcement catapults Bitcoin Depot to the number one spot which was previously held by COINFLIP. With 540 machines in operation worldwide, Bitcoin Depot now has an estimated 8% share of the global Bitcoin ATM market: Bitcoin Depot is the only company with more than 500 crypto ATM’s | Source: Coin ATM Radar. Bitcoin ATMs continue to expand to new locations in the U.S., but the picture isn’t completely rosy. The resurgence of bitcoin ATM fraud means it literally pays to do your homework when buying from a reputable operator.

Not for Everyone but Probably Necessary for Adoption

The world’s first Bitcoin ATM opened in Vancouver back in 2013. Now 7 years on, is there a case to be made for growing adoption? The numbers are still remarkably low. A 2019 study claims that 11% of Americans own bitcoin. And these are only numbers for the world’s most advanced economy. In other words, there’s still a long way to go before cryptocurrency reaches mainstream consciousness.

Fraud issues aside, some Redditors also point to growing concerns around transaction privacy with these machines:

There’s not much appeal to bitcoin ATMs anymore though. At least in the US. They used to be a decent option for privacy but now most have cameras and require a non-burner phone number. Combined with high fees and risk I can’t really recommend using one.

Bitcoin ATMs generally charge higher fees, sometimes in the region of 5-8%. Cryptocurrency exchanges are still, far and away, the cheapest and most efficient way to buy bitcoin. They are, however, more technical to use for everyday citizens who have become accustomed to physical outlets. Advanced users may not like bitcoin ATM’s but they are likely a necessary service if bitcoin adoption is to grow.

Bitcoin Payroll: How to Obtain Your Paycheck in Digital Currency

Bitcoin Payroll: How to Obtain Your Paycheck in Digital Currency

Payment platforms are being designed for the new kid in town. Bitcoin payroll could very likely become a thing at a business near you.

Every day, there is fresh and exciting news in the world of bitcoin.

Just this week, communications giant AT&T announced that it will accept payments in bitcoin. Bitcoin is proving to investors and consumers alike that it is a legitimate store of value. Last year, many were predicting the cryptocurrency’s end. However, bitcoin has staying power and has doubled in price in 2019. With a growing number of corporations accepting bitcoin, many people are looking to their paycheck. Read on to learn more about bitcoin payroll. Explore how to get your paycheck in the popular digital currency.

Why Should Businesses Investigate Bitcoin Payroll?

The world’s younger generations are looking for a currency change. They have little experience with commodities like gold or silver. Many millennials are too young to remember when the U.S. dollar’s value was tied to gold. Also, millennials are skeptical about government currencies due to debt and manipulation fears. As a result, half of all millennials are interested in using cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. Of this group, over one-third prefers to use bitcoin over the U.S. dollar. Therefore, many companies are looking to attract talented millennials by paying in bitcoin. The question for employees is how to receive a paycheck in digital currency.

Does Your Company Already Offer Bitcoin Payments?

The first action is to find out whether your employer already pays people with digital currency. Some companies use services like https://www.paystubcreator.net/ to generate paystubs when they pay out in bitcoin. If they do not pay in digital currency, don’t be afraid to ask whether it is in their future plans. With bitcoin’s growing popularity, there is a good chance that they are moving in that direction.

What Options Are Available for Bitcoin Payment?

There are a few different options available to employers to process paychecks in cryptocurrency if they opt to implement a bitcoin payroll system and make payments in that currency. However, it is not likely that all a company’s employees are on board with that plan. Another option is to make payments in traditional currencies. Then, companies can provide employees with a mechanism to convert their cash to a digital currency. Finally, your employer can opt to take a combination approach. Typically, this means combining traditional payroll services with partial payments in bitcoin.

What Are Some Concerns Your Employer May Have?

Digital currencies fluctuate in value on a daily basis. If there is a significant price drop, your employer may run afoul of state and federal minimum wage laws. Another concern is that each company must follow standard accounting practices for tax purposes. Your company’s accounting team may not know enough to comply with cryptocurrency laws. For example, the government may treat bitcoin transactions as investments instead of traditional payroll.

Wrapping It Up

The world is quickly adjusting to the bitcoin craze. It does appear that employers can keep up with customer demand for digital currencies. Your best course of action is to ask your company’s Human Resources department for more information. Perhaps they already pay out in bitcoin or have alternate options.

How India Accepting Crypto Can Change The Industry

In a recent turn of events, the Supreme Court of India removed the ban on cryptocurrency trading.

Now, every Indian citizen have the ability to trade crypto legally — which will bring a huge profit to the India’s economy in the following years.

Crypto Trading is Now Legal in India

In april 2018, India issued a ban in any dealings involving crypto assets. Now, after almost two years — India removed the ban and issued an official statement regarding crypto trading. The times were tough in the past, regulated exchanges & service provided needed to exit the Indian market within 3 months from April 2018. Many companies were against the ban, claiming that the central bank didn’t actually studied the matter and banned crypto trading because they had no idea on how to classify it.

But things changed. RBI had a change of heart and declared publicly that a digital rupee was something they were considering. Binance already made a welcome statement for Indian traders, welcoming indian people to the ‘freedom of money’. The price remained the same and there wasn’t a huge impact on the market, yet. But the news itself is a huge boost for Indian economy where a huge part of the population is unbanked. Besides this, are a lot of benefits that will come from these news. Not only for Indian traders, but for the India’s population.

The main benefits and the possible changes in the Indian ecosystem 

Probably most of the people didn’t know, but India is the second based on the number of startups created yearly. Their economy is growing and in a few years the technology will probably match a Tier 1 country’s one. And this was without cryptocurrency based startups.  What could happen now? Firstly, there would be a lot of crypto startups. With the recent ban being lifted, more and more entrepreneurs will chose the IEO/ICO way to raise funds for their startups. Of course, some will fail. But the next big thing may come from an Indian fintech company.

Secondly, businesses like Crypto.com may launch on the Indian market. With so many people unbanked, a payment system based on crypto may be a positive change in the Indian community. And of course, this will only lead to a larger crypto adoption rate worldwide. More people will accept crypto instead of USD, a lot of people will keep some of their savings in crypto and some businesses can even accept crypto.

And there’s a whole DeFi market waiting for it now. The Indian Supreme Court’s decision is huge for crypto on the long term. Even CZ from Binance was enthusiast about the news and claimed that he expects to see a large wave of investors coming from India in the future months. Lastly, this will be the example needed. If Indian’s crypto acceptance turns out to be a positive thing for their economy, more and more countries will probably follow their decision. China would be the next big country on the list that needs to regulate and accept cryptocurrency trading. The example set by India may influence the Chinese government to change their decision and made crypto trading legal in China again. Of course, regulated & taxable, but legal.

Tron Aims To Govern Steem Blockchain Collude With Major Exchanges For A Takeover

Tron Aims To Govern Steem Blockchain, Collude With Major Exchanges For A Takeover

Tron’s Justin Sun is said to be on a mission to overtake the governing body of Steem blockchain.

The news comes after Justin Sun reportedly colluded with major exchange operatives in order to acquire a voting power necessary to execute a hostile takeover and control the Steem blockchain.

Tron To Control Steem Blockchain

In Justin Sun’s effort to oust the government of Steem, the Tron CEO was reported by witnesses to have collaborated with major cryptocurrency exchanges including Binance and Huobi. A combination of these bodies contributed to the number of stakes (in steem tokens) necessary to overthrow the present government. According to the report, the effort between Tron, Binance, Huobi & others 20 of 21 of the blockchain witnesses have been overtaken. However, Binance is said to be facing a hard time with its customers based on this collaboration.

Binance Contemplates Backing Down

The majority of Binance’s customers, whose steem holdings provided the necessary contribution from Binance have complained. Such complaints, according to the report, have caused Changpeng Zhao, Binance CEO to contemplate a reversal of the decision. Justin Sun, according to report, also seemed to have the support of Ned Scott. According to Scott, the former Steem Network CEO, based on Justin Sun’s moved. And he maintained that such ambitions are Justin or the blockchain in the long run. Adding that “witnesses/portion of the community literally stole its [Steemit Inc’s] coins. Steemit owed them nothing.” He continued, “Steemit owes no one anything and anything else is grasping at straws/bullying to get your way/power… Fact: no pre-mine, no investors.”

Tron To Build A Healthier Steem Ecosystem

Today, Tron issued a statement saying they would use Steemit Inc’s holdings to vote. Not only that, the holdings would be used to actively thwart the soft fork meant to limit Tron’s power, claiming that the reversible update was “maliciously structured” and may be deemed

“illegal and criminal”

“Unfortunately, the Witnesses’decision created a need to reclaim the stake and vote in new witnesses to usher in new policies for a healthier ecosystem and community.”

The Counter-Attack From Steem Witnesses

Last Sunday, Steem witnesses, the equivalent of EOS block producers or Bitcoin mining pools, moved to soft fork the blockchain to temporarily limit the power of these developer accounts formally through Soft Fork 0.22.2. “The Steemit Inc ninja-mined stake is a special case, as up to this point it has been clearly declared on many occasions as earmarked solely for the development of the Steem ecosystem, and to be non-voting in governance issues,” said a letter co-authored by witnesses and major stakeholders. The soft fork was meant as a reversible code update to give the community additional time to gain clarity and come to a consensus on questions around the acquisition. The decision was contentious among witnesses.

Bitcoin BTC has spent much of the last week in freefall sinking to a low of 8520

Coronavirus Outbreak Tests Bitcoin Safe Haven Status

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) has spent much of the last week in freefall, sinking to a low of $8,520,

just as the Coronavirus outbreak prompts widespread panic in the financial world due to its potentially cataclysmic impact on the global economy. This negative correlation between a global crisis and the value of the world’s largest cryptocurrency is fuelling doubts that Bitcoin may not actually be a safe haven asset, as previously thought. A safe haven asset is an investment that investors turn to during times of market volatility and instability, in order to “weather the storm,” and are typically immune to market volatility or may even perform better. For example, gold is the archetypal safe-haven asset as it is a physical commodity, cannot be printed like money, and its value is not impacted by interest rate decisions made by a government. Bitcoin had recently been viewed as a possible safe-haven asset as its value has increased in times when the global economy looks vulnerable.

However, Bitcoin has seen about 15% of its value wiped out since February 11, just as COVID-19 began spreading outside of China, raising questions as to whether it can be considered a safe haven or not.“Bitcoin has been uncorrelated to other asset classes,” said crypto analyst at Coinist Research, Luke Martin. “If stocks drop, this does not mean bitcoin has to pump. If gold prices climb, this does not mean bitcoin will rise with it every time.”

Class-Action Lawsuit Threatens Ripple’s Established Market

The negative correlation between the value of Bitcoin and the outbreak of the Coronavirus indicates that crypto speculators have returned to assessing BTC based on its own metrics, given that its value isn’t derived from the same indicators as fiat currencies, like interest rates and GDP. Instead, Bitcoin is driven purely by demand, which is why it often remains steady while other markets look fragile. Bitcoin’s current value is US$8,790.

Kanyean Philosophy — It’s A Thing

Kanyean Philosophy — It’s A Thing

"It's not where you take things from. It's where you take them to."
                                                                                  Kanye West

Kanye West definitely has a way with words. But instead of rapping them as lyrics to a song, he now puts his thoughts down as inspirational quotes on his channel on Twitter. A series of clever remarks and truisms that is an expression of how he feels also noting that this is his book he is writing in real-time…

“Oh, by the way, this is my book I’m writing in real-time. No publisher is going to tell me what to put where or how many pages to write. This is not a financial opportunity, this is an innate need to be expressive.”  

West's lyrical proclamations have included such gems as "reach for the stars, so if you fall you land on a cloud" and "hurry up with my damn croissants!".

But how does he shape up as a philosopher? Can he legitimately be ranked alongside Nietzsche, Descartes, and Kant?

BBC Music reporter Mark Savage wanted an expert to scrutinize the star's tweets.
While one replied that they "wouldn't know how to assess them taken as philosophy", Dr. Lauren Ware, a lecturer at the University of Kent, who specializes in the philosophy of emotion was up for the challenge.

 

Here's what Dr. Ware made of the Kanyean school of philosophy.

 

Kanye says: 

"Truth is my goal. Controversy is my gym. I'll do a hundred reps of controversy for a 6 pack of truth."

Kanye identifies here his philosophical methodology: the arrival at truth through controversy.
Philosophy as the pursuit of truth, the love of wisdom, is well-known, but Kanye's embrace of controversy marks him out as genuinely engaging in philosophical practice.

Dr. Ware teaches a module at Kent called "Philosophical Reading and Writing", and when students struggle to come up with material for their essays, she tells them to find the controversy, find a problem, turn that into a question, and then your answer to that question is your thesis statement.

Philosophy starts with controversy, training, and exercise in identifying and dealing with it charitably is a great way to flex your philosophical muscles.

Kanye says: 

"Cars have four wheels. Hoodies have hoods. It's amusing to me when someone says this is an original hoodie. Bro… it's a hoodie."

Here we get into the solid metaphysical commitments of Kanyean philosophy. Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that asks questions about reality and existence: What does it mean to be real? Do dreams exist? What makes a hoodie a hoodie and not a car?

What Kanye is doing here is laying down what is called in philosophy the "necessary and sufficient conditions" for being a hoodie. You can't be a hoodie without a hood, so hoods are necessary for hoodie-hood. But it remains to be seen in his theory whether hoods are sufficient for hoodie-hood.

Do hoods alone a hoodie make?

Another interesting element is this notion of originality: Would the very concept of the hoodie — hoodiness incarnate — be itself the one, true, original hoodie? Does this concept of the hoodie exist? Can I buy it?

Kanye says: 

"I don't believe in the concept of an enemy. We have been conditioned to always be in competition. Stop looking for something to beat and just be. You don't have to do all the work. Once you start moving in love the universe will assist you."

Here's a concept that definitely does not exist in the Yeezian universe: the enemy.
What does it mean for a concept to cease to exist? If everyone followed Kanye and stopped believing in enemies, do they disappear?

We're getting to the heart of Kanye's metaphysics here, and it bears an astonishing connection to that of the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato.

Responding to Kanye, Plato would say concepts aren't dependent on anyone believing in them to exist. But he did say in his dialogue, The Symposium, that it's through love that we come to understand concepts. Part of what it is to love something is to be curious about it, to want to understand it.

Perhaps it is through the love of our enemies that the universe will assist us in understanding what they truly are?

 

Kanye says: 

"Stop playing chess with life. Make decisions based on love, not fear."

One of the prominent themes running through the early aphorisms of Kanye's book is a tension between fear and love.

The philosophy of emotions is a vibrant sub-branch of philosophy, aiming to articulate the nature and value of emotions: what are emotions? What can they do? When can they help or hinder us? Emotions are a hot topic, and Kanye is bang on trend philosophically here.

Now, there exists a persistent cultural script that reason and emotion are at odds with each other — that emotions are fundamentally irrational or counter to reason. We can see this reflected in some of Kanye's work, for example…

"Don't follow crowds. Follow the innate feelings inside of you. Do what you feel not what you think. Thoughts have been placed in our heads to make everyone assimilate. Follow what you feel."

However, the emotion vs. reason script is by now pretty much established as a false dichotomy in philosophy. Why? Because there's a difference between something being a-rational and it being irrational.

My fear can certainly be irrational: for example, when I'm afraid for no good reason, or more afraid of an object than it is worth. But that's not because fear is an emotion. Rather, it's because, as R.A. Duff argues, "our rational grasp of the world is so often… fallible; after all, our beliefs can also be irrational, when they are not properly grounded in or proportional to the relevant evidence".

We can, therefore, understand emotions to be perfectly rational when they are appropriately grounded in reality: when the beliefs that form part of the emotion are true.

Kanye says: 

"Everything means nothing until you make it something. You are your validator."

No other tweet aphorism better demonstrates the existentialism at the core of Kanye's book. Existentialist philosophers like Simone de Beauvoir championed the view that we ourselves give meaning and purpose to our life in the very act of living it. We craft our own existence, by living authentically.

We can identify Kanye's existentialism reflected in his theme of authenticity. Our purpose — or validation, as Kanye calls it — comes only from this self-creative act of making ourselves through our lives and projects.

 

 

Much overlooked in the early reception of Kanye's philosophical debut was what appeared on the surface to be a rather blunt announcement that these tweets are, in fact, his anticipated book.

"Oh, by the way, this is my book that I'm writing in real-time."

An existentialist interpretation reveals this as a call to authenticity. Perhaps Kanye's message to his followers is that this is how we should all be living, with the Kanyean existentialist motto: Oh, by the way, this is my life that I'm writing in real-time.

The rapper reminds creatives not to trade their "authenticity for approval" as he publishes his book straight to social media.

 

West Ranch, Cody Wyoming

 

West At Home In The West

West has found solace in his home in Wyoming allowing his creativity and truisms to flourish. What better way to get in touch with oneself than to be surrounded by nature at its best all in the name of Jesus with the aim to reach as many people as possible. 

Reportedly,  the community of Cody, Wyoming, for the most part, has accepted the new Kanye West not just for his celebrity status and the economic and tourism growth he can bring but as a wholesome citizen and neighbor. 

 Kanye’s team was spotted cleaning up roadside trash, a win in any community. “We notice those little things,” said Tina Hoebelheinrich, the executive director of the Cody Chamber of Commerce. She said that actions like these mattered far more to the town than Kanye’s celebrity. 

 

 

 

 

West still continues to win Cody over when he rented the auditorium of Cody High School to rehearse his debut opera, “Nebuchadnezzar”. Kanye was very willing to let the high school students watch the rehearsal. One young student was invited to play in the orchestra when it was realized an extra saxophonist was needed. She told Cowboy State Daily News that the experience was life-changing. “They just really just like opened my eyes to want I want to do” 

 

Nebuchadnezzar, King Of Babylon — Prophecy Of Kanye

West’s opera, “Nebuchadnezzar,” was performed Nov. 24, 2019, at the Hollywood Bowl after rehearsals by dancers and musicians at Cody High School on Nov. 21.

The opera tells the story of an ancient Babylonian king and his transition from wicked, imperious, self-declared ruler to a true believer who finds salvation in his faith. Kanye West likens himself to the King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar who worshipped earthly gods at one point in his life, documented in the Book Of Daniel. He was absolved of his sins and given eternal life once he realized the power of the one and only true GOD. 

It would seem this opera is his way of spreading the message, of letting people know you can falter, you can fall over, and it’s okay to get back up and continue moving forward. That you can have the audacity to recover.

Why Investing In Blockchain Is The Future

Why Investing In Blockchain Is The Future

 

 

Blockchain technology is one of the most promising developments of this decade.

Blockchains are decentralized digital ledgers that record and enable secure peer-to-peer transactions without third-party intermediaries. This technology is enabling new forms of businesses that are innovating in numerous sectors. While the internet ushered in the digitization and proliferation of information on a global scale until now, it lacked the ability to digitize and transfer assets without trusted third parties (banks, exchanges, governments, etc.) Blockchains have solved this problem and are ushering in an age of asset digitization and transfer. They are changing the way we invest, by creating a new set of digital assets, and even transforming legacy assets into digital assets through a process known as tokenization. According to International Data Corp, total corporate and government spending on blockchain technology was close to $2.9 billion in 2019, an increase of 89% over the previous year, and is expected to reach $12.4 billion by 2022. The forecast for the blockchain industry is expected by many to grow exponentially in the next years, creating unseen investment opportunities.

Blockchain Verticals

Blockchain technology can be divided into distinct verticals or potential use cases such as:

  • Digital Currencies: Digital currencies, the most well-known, have already proven successful for online transactions, global payments, e-commerce, remittance, P2P lending, microfinance, and a store of value.
  • Smart Contracts: Smart contracts utilize transparent open ledger blockchains, such as Ethereum, to enable the creation of platforms for digital rights, escrow, and settlement.
  • Internet of Things (IOT): IoT typically refers to a network of connected devices that are capable of collecting and exchanging data. Traditional IoT systems are dependent on a centralized architecture; however, blockchain connected IoT devices can function securely and autonomously by creating blockchain-based agreements and rules that are only executed upon completion of specific requirements. This peer-to-peer architecture should allow for greater scalability, remove the risk of a single point of failure, and potentially drive wide-scale adoption.
  • Data Storage: Instead of storing files and information on a centralized server, such as a Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, platforms like Sia or Storj have begun using Blockchain technology to decentralize data storage. By breaking up files into multiple pieces, encrypting, and sending them to hard drives located all around the world, individuals and private businesses can rent their unused hard drive space to generate income, and users can store their data anonymously without a single point of failure.

The Importance

The importance of these verticals is to highlight the wide range of use cases blockchain technology has to offer. Unlike the internet, it is possible to gain exposure to the business logic layer of these verticals through the acquisition of certain tokens that are the fuel of their respective blockchains. BTCS Inc. (OTCQB: BTCS) has identified this opportunity in the market and is focused exclusively on digital assets and blockchain technologies. For the past six years, this company has been focusing on developing a deep understanding of the industry and creating strategic relationships with key players in the blockchain industry, gaining invaluable insight and knowledge in the process. This company is one of the first U.S. publicly traded companies to focus on digital assets and blockchain technology exclusively.

BTCS has already established a portfolio of digital assets and is now planning on expanding it in key verticals while also seeking acquisition opportunities in the blockchain space. This company has over six years of experience in the field and has a deep understanding of this sector, placing them in a unique position to identify business opportunities and digital assets in the blockchain industry. Additionally, BTCS is developing its own digital asset data analytics platform aimed at providing crucial information to users, enabling the tracking of multiple digital asset exchanges and wallets to aggregate portfolio holdings into a single platform to view and analyze performance, risk metrics, and potential tax implications. Blockchain technology is expected to play a massive role in the tech industry in the coming years. This has already been seen in 2019, with major companies adopting this tech at some level. That’s the reason why BTCS plans on leveraging its position to offer investors the opportunity to obtain indirect exposure to digital assets.

WebDollar An Original Cryptocurrency to Solve the Problems of the Future

WebDollar — An Original Cryptocurrency to Solve the Problems of the Future

The cryptocurrency market has been continuously expanding in the last few years

and new digital assets were released to the market. One of the crypto assets that claims to be the cryptocurrency of the future is WebDollar (WEBD). In this article, we will explain what WebDollar is, what it’s aiming to improve, and which are the main characteristics of this cryptocurrency. The Internet became an important part of our daily lives and it is connecting not only people and businesses but also objects and machines. With WEBD, the goal is to have a native asset for the World Wide Web and enhance the entire www ecosystem.

What is WebDollar?

WebDollar wants to become the native cryptocurrency of the World Wide Web and help the whole industry to expand, to improve its portability, lightness and simplicity. Although Bitcoin (BTC) remains the largest cryptocurrency in the market, it was not able to establish itself as the native currency to the internet. The team behind WebDollar has been working very hard writing an original code for the whole network. With it, it is possible to run an independent and powerful blockchain with different capabilities. The surprising thing about this project is the fact that they didn’t start from an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) as most of the tokens that are currently available in the market. Inventor Alexandru Ionut Budisteanu along with several other developers has already an ongoing project that didn’t receive funds from private investors in the form of an ICO.

Back in 2017, ICOs were the main tool for crypto and blockchain-related projects. However, most of these ICOs were not able to succeed and grow. Indeed, they were highly criticized by market enthusiasts and many countries have banned them. ICOs used to generate high profits for their creators, which resulted in a wave of scam projects that had a negative impact on decentralization in general. WebDollar instead started from scratch without an ICO and it has set apart just 10% of the total supply that the network will ever create. These funds are only used by the creators to pay for the continuous development of the market in many forms of rewards. WebDollar team is working so as to offer a simple user experience to handle cryptocurrencies. No installations or downloads are required and there is no need to handle complicated configurations. To make it faster for users, the wallets are generated and handled automatically and can be saved locally on any machine that has a storage.

How Does WebDollar Work?

WebDollar is currently powered by a hybrid consensus algorithm that includes 33.33% Proof-of-Work (PoW) and 66.66% Proof-of-Stake (PoS). The network is moving forward with its goal of becoming 90% PoS and just 10% PoW considering this would be much more effective, green (eco-friendly) and secure for the whole ecosystem. When it was launched (26 April 2018) the cryptocurrency was 100% PoW.

Users can start mining the digital currency in a fast and easy way just by running any browser on any supported device. A computer can easily start mining WEBD and the user is quickly rewarded. Moreover, WEBD is powered by one of the most advanced NIPoPoW consensus algorithms. The Non-Interactive Proofs of Proof-of-Work are stand-alone strings that a computer program can inspect and verify an event happened on a PoW network. These are usually very efficient for mobile wallets and for sidechains, among other things. As mentioned before, WebDollar allows users to start using it without having to make any specific download, installation or registration. Moreover, the wallets are generated directly in the browser, which allows non-savvy individuals to start handling cryptocurrencies. At the same time, the network offers offline transactions and it has been designed to be ASIC resistant and GPU unfriendly.

In the future, the goal is to increase the anonymity of its users by developing and adding transaction mixers. These mixers are very useful for individuals that want to protect their privacy and data when making transactions on the network. There are some cryptocurrencies that have already added these features but none of them is able to offer the fast and easy-to-use services offered by WebDollar. At the same time, the team wants to implement smart contracts as well. This would help the whole network work not only as a blockchain platform to make and process transactions but also to process more complex tasks and instructions.

A future set of new features include an ecosystem exchange and exchange listings, scaling transactions, a community voting centre for updates, multi-sig using fingerprint and facial recognition ID and many other things. It is worth mentioning that the project is also promoting the network with monthly bounties on Twitter and YouTube, you can follow them on Twitter for the weekly topics. Users that want to acquire the WEBD cryptocurrency can do so by registering on the BitRabbit cryptocurrency exchange, a platform that allows clients to trade digital assets on the market. Other exchanges supporting this virtual currency include P2PB2B, BitMahavi (bank transfer), Swaps Network and WebD Timi (paypal and credit card).

The WebD Timi exchange aims to deliver a 24/7 services for buying and selling WEBD cryptocurrency without barriers and using the most common fiat currencies among the WebDollar community members. The team is constantly working in order to increase the liquidity for this cryptocurrency. They are also trying to list the digital asset in other popular and widely used crypto exchanges. This would have a positive effect on WEBD considering that it will have more exposure to investors, traders and crypto enthusiasts. Some of the companies that are currently working with WEBD include Hostero, Webd.Shop, Ale-Teo, Mojito Club, Crypto Coffee, Shop Aji, and many others. In the future, the number of companies working with WEBD is expected to grow as the team creates new partnerships and the WEBD digital asset expands in the market.

Conclusion

WebDollar was created as a cryptocurrency that wants to become the native asset of the Internet. Although the team knows this is not an easy task, they are building a network that is easy to use and that would provide innovative solutions to users. With a NiPoPoW and its ASIC-resistant consensus algorithm, WEBD aims at offering simplicity, lightness and portability to users that are currently using the Internet all around the world.

Bitplaza Inc Introducing Cryptocurrency to Retail

Bitplaza Inc Introducing Cryptocurrency to Retail

BitPlaza

Even though influential companies are not ready to validate cryptocurrencies as a stable form of money,

Bitcoin is becoming a more frequently used currency daily. There is a rising number of companies that accept Bitcoin for the purchase of their products, validating it as a spendable currency around the globe. Bitplaza Inc took the next step into technology and commerce, providing customers with a platform where they can spend Bitcoins for their needs through a mobile device. It opens the opportunity for companies and brands to list their products in exchange for Bitcoin, which will give more credibility to the coin.

What is Bitplaza?

Bitplaza is a shopping app that belongs to a retail company called Bitplaza Inc, located in Pennsylvania. The app is available on both Google Play and the Apple App Store. Bitplaza allows anyone globally to purchase brand new items with Bitcoin. The app has a wide variety of products to buy online, from electronic devices, video games, even groceries. The products that can be purchased from the app range from popular brands such as Sony, Starbucks, Adidas, Apple, and many more. The Bitplaza team is always adding new products to the shopping app, making more items available to be purchased with Bitcoin. The app covers a broad range of products for the different needs of the customer. 

Bitplaza is a company that innovates new technologies to make shopping with cryptocurrency, into something easy. It’s the first mobile application of its kind that allows people around the world to make a purchase online using Bitcoin as the main currency.  In the time that the Bitplaza app has been on the market, it has proved to be a reliable platform for customers that use Bitcoin. It offers secure shipment of products both overseas and in the US. The security of the customers’ information is fundamental when working directly with cryptocurrencies; Bitplaza provides this security during the purchase without compromising the customer’s private data.  

Impact on the Bitcoin Market and Global Retail

The initiative that Bitplaza Inc took by creating an easy app for people to spend Bitcoin has become a boost in the currency market. The reason why Bitcoin is not yet one of the standard currencies in the world is for the lack of support that it has from Central Banks and other entities. In addition to that, most retail companies claim that Bitcoin is still too volatile, and until it shows a stable price, it can’t be used as a payment method or measure for other currencies.

The statement is beginning to change with the appearance of Bitplaza, AT&T, Overstock, Dish Network and other companies adopting the currency as a means of payment. The launch of Bitplaza also marked the next step for the retail business, unifying the prices of products worldwide under the same digital currency, which is something unseen before. It allows the rise of international commerce, highlighting the possibilities of stable interest rates and making it easier to import a product that’s not local.

Advances on Bitcoin for 2020

The strength of Bitcoin grows every year, even though the many business entrepreneurs declare it as a forgettable trend and are a bit skeptical. Others argue the Bitcoin market is one of the three most essential assets as an investment for the future. Companies like Bitplaza and many others show that the cryptocurrencies are the next step on the e-commerce evolution which is not going unnoticed by the central banks, investors, and traders.

The year 2020 may be the one that will determine the future for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Different events such as the Halving on May 2020 will have an impact on the Bitcoin market, increasing the value. On the other hand, various companies are investing in creating more opportunities for Bitcoin to grow. The use of Bitcoin for shopping purposes is becoming more frequent each time around, and it can’t be ignored much longer.
