United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) chairman Jay Clayton has said this week that he is “optimistic” that developments in distributed ledger technology (DLT) can “help facilitate capital formation.” Speaking as part of a testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs — published on the SEC website Dec. 11 — Clayton added that DLT offers “promising investment opportunities” to institutional and retail investors alike. Clayton’s testimony spanned various aspects of the SEC’s oversight — including its regulatory and policy agenda over the past fiscal year as well as its “new strategic plan,” and 2019 “near-term” focus. Within this context, Clayton emphasized the agency was “focusing a significant amount of attention and resources” on Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), distributed ledger technology (DLT) and digital assets. In regard to his self-declared “optimism” about the investment opportunities provided by the new sector, Clayton outlined a range of the agency’s initiatives that aim to “foster innovation” and protect investors” as part of a “balanced regulatory approach.” —— 🤔Do you think the SEC has been helpful or bad for the growth of cryptocurrency adoption? 🗣Let us know in a few words! —— 🤩Follow @altcoindaily —— #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews

A new survey by HR startup company ChronoBank has found that crypto investors are disappointed in the lack of employers willing to pay salaries in Bitcoin and Altcoins. The survey found that while 66% of respondents are willing to receive wages in cryptocurrencies, only 30% believe that companies in their country will change to paying salaries in digital assets, with U.S. respondents being particularly skeptical on that front. Even more, approximately 83% of all respondents, were also willing to receive their bonus payments in cryptocurrencies. In terms of taxation, only 52% are ready to pay taxes on their digital revenues. While 65% of U.S. respondents said they were ready to pay the tax man. That said, over 60% of the younger respondents from all countries were ready and willing to pay tax on their cryptocurrency transactions and earnings. Respondents hailed from Australia, the U.S., and Russia among other nations, with 92% of the respondents being male, 75% employed, and 40% aged between 25 and 34. —— Would you want to be paid in cryptocurrency as a salary?

According to LongHash, every year, more than $87.3 billion is spent on mining gold. In contrast, less than $4.3 billion is used to mine Bitcoin. Essentially, gold mining requires 20 times more energy and cost in comparison to Bitcoin mining, despite the narrative that has been circulating since the surge in the price of Bitcoin in early 2017 that Bitcoin is hugely impacting the environment negatively. —— Do you think gold or Bitcoin is safer for processing?

Decentralized internet protocol TRON CEO Justin Sun has said the company will build a fund to “rescue” Ethereum (ETH) and EOS developers from “the collapse” of their platforms. Sun made his offer with the precondition that the developers “migrate” their decentralized applications (dApps) to the Tron Foundation network. This is not the first time Justin Sun has weighed in on his competitors in the industry on social media; in early October, the CEO claimed the Tron network’s latest version, Odyssey 3.1, could beat Ethereum on speed and EOS on cost. Sun’s claims at the time prompted a surge of eight percent in the TRX token’s value. In recent weeks, TRX — as ETH and EOS — has shed significant value amid volatile markets; the token, ranked 10th largest crypto on CoinMarketCap, is down 4.5 percent on the day, and 44 percent on the month, to trade at $0.013 at press time. —— If you could only have one which cryptocurrency would you own, Ethereum, EOS or Tron?

A blockchain advert by Hyundai Digital Asset Company (HDAC), presenting a high-tech vision of the future featuring internet-of-things (IoT) technology, has been featured in every half-time break. On July 7, it showed at half-time of the England clash with Sweden. This quarter-final hit 30 million viewers. The advert showed a family making instant payments using blockchain technology and highlighted that the house was also protected by it. Smart appliances were presented calculating meter readings and automatically processing payments of utilities. More importantly than the use-cases, the advert showed the technology as trustworthy. Mainstream media has attempted to portray Bitcoin, the most well-known example of blockchain technology, as a Ponzi scheme despite any similarities. As a subsidiary of Hyundai, back this technology, TV viewers will have a credible new perspective with a name they are familiar with. The advert also put the technology in a family setting, making viewers realise that blockchain technology can benefit them in everyday situations. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ❓Were you able to catch the advertisement while watching the World Cup? ❗️Share a few words! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ( Curated by @sharecrypto ) ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #worldcup #worldcup2018 #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews
It's the latest "smart delivery" intellectual property play from the retail giant, which in the past year has submitted a number of U.S. patent applications in this area. Indeed, the company seems to be looking at the technology as a way to automate elements of the delivery process, but to date, much of the company's public-facing work with blockchain has been focused on food supply chain tracking. In the newly released filing, Walmart detail system of delivery lockers – located at a person's home, transportation hub or other location – that can safeguard the delivered items until their recipients can come and actually sign for them. Blockchain fits into the conceived picture as a method of connecting those lockers in order to track which ones are occupied and which ones are free to be used. The application published on July 5 is entitled "Delivery Reservation Apparatus and Method," and as suggested, it outlines a way for managing package reservations in the context of the purchaser not being available to actually receive it. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ❓Do you think Amazon should adopt blockchain for similar purposes? ❗️Share a few words! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ( Curated by @sharecrypto ) ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews
The notorious torrent index site The Pirate Bay has resumed using users’ CPU to mine Monero (XMR) on their website. On July 4th, The Pirate Bay added a disclaimer at the bottom of their website which stated: “By entering TPB you agree to XMR being mined using your CPU. If you don’t agree please leave now or install an adBlocker” The Pirate Bay conducted a one-day trial back in September to test out mining Monero using visitors CPU’s. The website utilized a tool called Coinhive which allowed developers to include a simple script which would then use the website user’s CPU to perform mining which utilizes a significant portion of resources. Since October, The Pirate Bay has started using crypto-mining alongside advertisements on their website. Although several users have claimed that they do not mind mining to support the website and viewed it as a healthy alternative to obstructive advertising, The Pirate Bay has been criticized for using resources without the consent of the user and has then suspended mining. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ❓Do you use The Pirate Bay? ❗️Share a few words! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ( Curated by @altcoindaily ) ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews

Tron has been making huge waves as 2018 comes to a close, first with the release of the Tron virtual machine and smart contracts, then with the demo version of its decentralized exchange (DEX) TronWatch, and most recently with news of adding zk-SNARKS and privacy. Now Tron (TRX) has marked another highlight as it moves into the #10 position on CoinMarketCap for market capitalization. When you consider the bear market in cryptocurrencies that’s been pushing coins lower nearly all year, any sustained upward momentum is impressive. Part of Tron’s move to #10 is due to the strong bounce seen at the end of November. Tron CEO Justin Sun dreams of creating the largest smart contract and dapp blockchain and has been pushing Tron hard to get there. The large range of products released in 2018 could see his dream come true sooner rather than later. —— 🤔Are you a supporter of TRON (TRX) 🗣Let us know in a few words! —— 🤩Follow @kvakvn —— #tron #trx #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews

In an interview with Forbes, Ledger president Pascal Gauthier stated that the lack of secure platforms which users can utilize to sign transactions on the immutable public blockchain led the demand for Ledger and hardware wallets in general, to rise. “Blockchain itself is secure, but signing on the blockchain is a flaw. If you lose the [private key], there’s no bank looking after your assets or any way to recover them,” Gauthier told Forbes. In early 2018, Ledger raised $75 million led by billionaire early stage technology investor Tim Draper and Draper Venture Network funds. The Series B funding round of Ledger was a significant boost from its previous Series A funding round that closed a $7 million investment. After having recorded a profit last year with impressive financial results, Ledger is set to raise yet another multi-million dollar funding round this year. Already, some of the largest technology conglomerates in the world such as Samsung, Siemens and Google’s ventures arm have viewed the financials of Ledger, with interest of investing in the company, Forbes revealed. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 🤔Do you own a Ledger Nano S? 🗣Share a few words! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ( Curated by @sharecrypto ) ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews
Repost @altcoindaily location: New York, New York ・・・ Surprisingly, amid one of the worst Bitcoin corrections in its decade-long history, a number of commentators and investors, from the traditional, venture, and crypto realms alike, have come out in full support of this asset class and ground-breaking innovation. The most recent of these notable outspoken supporters is one Jeff Sprecher, CEO of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), who took to CoinDesk’s Consensus Invest event on Tuesday to discuss his opinions on the crypto market. Speaking at the popular New York event, which hosted the crypto industry’s leading innovators, analysts, and executives, Sprecher spoke on if he believes that digital assets will survive, especially considering the market’s most recent drastic downturn. Responding to the self-imposed question, the ICE chief, known for having a penchant for innovation and acceptance, noted that he would say “the unequivocal answer is yes,” before adding that the tumultuous value of crypto assets hasn’t irked his view on the matter. —— 🤔Are you feeling bullish or bearish on crypto's potential future? 🗣Let us know in a few words! —— 🤩Follow @cryptogemhunters —— #ice #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews

Republican Congressman Warren Davidson, an avowed bitcoin and blockchain fan, plans to introduce federal legislation that will regulate initial coin offerings (ICO) and cryptocurrencies. The bill would create an “asset class” for tokens, which would prevent them from “being classified as securities, but would also allow the federal government to regulate initial coin offerings more effectively”. Davidson made the announcement at a four-day blockchain conference in Cleveland that featured Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin. Republicans — who generally oppose regulation — have been leading the pro-crypto charge in Washington by demanding more clarity on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s plans to regulate virtual currencies like bitcoin, though crypto has found support from across the political spectrum. —— Do you think the cryptocurrency market needs more regulation in order to grow?

Robinhood’s blog post notes that they are planning to “further expand our coin offerings and add support for coin transfers,” writing that the entire Robinhood platform has a reach of more than 5 million people. Robinhood launched its zero-free crypto trading platform in February, originally supporting Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), with trading available for U.S. residents in California, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, and New Hampshire. The app, which can be now be used across 17 states, raised $363 million in May during a series D funding round in order to expand its crypto-platform U.S.-wide. At the end of June, Robinhood had become the subject of rumors that they were launching their own cryptocurrency wallet after posting a job listing for cryptocurrency engineers. Also in June, Baiju Bhat, Robinhood’s co-founder and co-CEO, said that he believes sovereign nations will eventually have crypto as their default currency. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ❓Is Robinhood crypto trading available in your state? ❗️Share a few words! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ( Curated by @altcoindaily ) ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews
💲 www.coinpricefriendly.com Live Price Updates in Every Sec with #coinpricefriendly or @coinpricefriendly .... 📣 Telegram, Website, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, FB Page : @Coinpricefriendly ...... ✍🏻 Amazon has a complex relationship with crypto. In April 2014, the e-commerce giant decided not to accept Bitcoin (BTC) citing customer preferences. Amazon payments head Tom Taylor told Recode in an interview: “Obviously it gets a lot of press and we have considered it, [...] but we’re not hearing from customers that it’s right for them and don’t have any plans within Amazon to engage Bitcoin.” Curiously, the move came just few months after Overstock.com, one of Amazon’s rivals, became the first major retail company to introduce BTC as a payment option and found initial success, as its CEO Patrick Byrne claimed that Amazon would have to “follow suit.” Taylor’s comment could have meant that the e-commerce giant would turn to cryptocurrencies once they see more exposure. However, the 2014 decision stays to date, regardless of the overall improved market capitalization and adoption, public petitions addressed to CEO Jeff Bezos, and some businesses being built around serving as the middlemen for Amazon customers willing to pay with digital currencies. In April 2018, Amazon won a patent for a subscription feed system described as a “streaming data marketplace." Thus, Amazon has not shown itself to be exactly a pro-Bitcoin company. Nevertheless, its relationship with the underlying technology, blockchain, has proven to be much more fruitful. —— 🤔Do you think e-commerce stores want crypto or just want to use blockchain technology? 🗣Let us know in a few words! —— 🤩Follow @altcoindaily —— #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews
Long-dormant whale wallets have now moved $1bn+ of Bitcoin in 12hrs cryptonewsreview.com Yesterday evening, at around 7pm (UK GMT), one of the richest wallets on the Bitcoin blockchain suddenly sprang back into action after over four years of inactivity. The address, 1PnMfRF2enSZnR6JSexxBHuQnxG8Vo5FVK, was well-monitored as the #9 ranked account on the Bitcoin Rich List and, according to data from blockchain.com had been largely dormant for over four years. So, as you’d imagine, the clearance of the account and the movement of 66,000+ BTC (worth over $260m) immediately caused eyes to turn towards it. Then, one hour later, the 10th ranked wallet – 1AhTjUMztCihiTyA4K6E3QEpobjWLwKhkR – sprang into action after a similar period of inactivity. Were that not enough big moves for one day, at around 10pm UK time tonight, a very similar thing happened again. This time it was the – you guessed it – #11 wallet under the microscope, another one that had laid pretty idle for four years. The action continued with another wallet worth approximately half of the first two (ranked at #30 ), also on the move at around 10.30pm. This was a new wallet, though, last active in July of this year. Then, at around 2am this morning, another newer wallet previously ranked #36 on that Rich List began exactly the same thing – moving another 31,269 BTC. All-in-all that’s an eye-watering 263,294 bitcoins that have shifted wallets in the last few hours from those four addresses alone. At a market value of over $1.02bn, based on CryptoCompare’s current index price for Bitcoin ($3,899). To put that in some kind of context, that’s a volume of crypto that now well exceeds half of the total amount of BTC traded across exchanges in the last 24hrs. With that amount of Bitcoin in the wild, and prices already suffering in the last few weeks, you’d probably be entitled to wonder what was going on and what it all could possibly mean. We’ll, what happened to the Bitcoin after the initial moves probably gives us a hint.

Nasdaq VP confirms plans to take on Bakkt with Bitcoin Futures According to reports, a Vice President of the Nasdaq exchange has confirmed its plans to compete with Bakkt by listing Bitcoin Futures soon. Joseph Christinat, one of the leading figures in Nasdaq’s media relations setup, has said that “Bitcoin Futures will be listed and it should launch in the first half of next year.” Christinat, apparently went on to add that – while the decision to list would ultimately be based on approval from the US commodities Futures Trading Commission (CTFC), Nasdaq had done enough preparation that the green light would be “academic.” Like its now-competitor in the Bitcoin futures space, Bakkt, Nasdaq has apparently been working towards such a launch – long rumoured, it should be said – for some time. While the NYSE-backed Bakkt’s CEO Kelly Loeffler has consistently said its meetings regarding its crypto’s potential began back in 2014 – with it’s first product scheduled for launch in mid-January, following a recent pushing back of the launch date – Christinat is also keen to stress that it has held a long-term interest in the headline cryptocurrency, and that its current price woes will not afflict its plans. “We got into the blockchain game five years ago,” the VP claimed, “and when the technology first popped up we just leant out of the window and shouted ‘hey come over here’ right at it.” “We’ve put a hell of a lot of money and energy into delivering the ability to do this and we’ve been all over it for a long time – way before the market went into turmoil, and that will not affect the timing of this in any way. No. Period. We’re doing this no matter what.” Much of 2018 has been spent with the cryptocurrency community expectant of new range of financial investment opportunities being launched. Chief among these were the multiple plans for Exchange Traded Funds, which would give investors the chance to place money into schemes that tracked a basket of coins.
La red bitcoin registra una transacción de $ 250m, la más grande en su historia Pedro Luis Martín Olivares - Una dirección de Bitcoin, inactiva desde 2014 y que calificó como una de las veinte mejores billeteras más ricas, ha movido 66,233 BTC hace unas horas, lo que representa un poco más de $ 250 millones a precios moderados de hoy, lo que la convierte en la transacción más grande en la historia cuando se la valora USD en el momento del pago. Para poner el tamaño del movimiento en contexto, la cantidad es aproximadamente $ 100 millones más alta que el volumen de operaciones de un día completo en un intercambio importante como Bitfinex. Transacción de bajo costo La transacción de un billón de dólares en sí misma se envió a una cantidad de direcciones SegWit diferentes y le costó al remitente menos de $ 50 en tarifas, mucho menos de lo que las instituciones bancarias tradicionales cobrarían por procesar una cantidad similar.

Christinat added that Nasdaq were awaiting the green light from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), but suggested that was virtually signed and sealed. “We’re doing this, and it’s happening,” he stressed, adding the current volatility in the market would have no bearing whatsoever on the decision to press ahead with the listing. the news has been met with excitement, with many claiming the Nasdaq listing will now pave the way for Bitcoin’s mainstream future. “This is it – this is the tipping point that people will look back upon in years to come and say that’s where cryptocurrency came into its own,” said New York-based observer John Wintnerbusch. “Once Bitcoin is listed on Nasdaq’s boards, there’ll be no stopping the march towards cryptocurrency as the future of finance.” —— Do you think Bitcoin Futures will increase cryptocurrency's market cap or reduce it?

China’s ongoing drive to dominate the emerging global blockchain technology sector has been underlined by news that Alibaba Group Holding alone filed more than 10 percent of all blockchain patents worldwide in 2017. Research by Thomson Reuters shows that 56 percent of all 406 blockchain patents issued around the world in 2017 came from China, with the United States a distant second with 22 percent. Combined with the rapid rise in blockchain patent filings from 134 in 2016 to 406 in 2017, the data tells a story of an ongoing intellectual property rights race that China is currently winning convincingly. Alibaba currently has filed 43 patents related to emerging blockchain technologies. —— Do you think Amazon will start to adopt blockchain patents for their company? —— Share a few words! —— Curated by @sharecrypto —— #alibaba #segwit #segwit2x #bitcoincash #eth #btc #cryptocurrency #ico #ai #smartcontracts #initialcoinoffering #ethereum #ether #bitcoin #altcoin #litecoin #cryptonaire #sharecrypto #blockchain #coinbase #steemit #monero #bitcoins #cryptocurrencies #cryptocurrencynews

All G20 leaders signed a joint declaration on Saturday following their summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, pledging, among other things, to develop a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies in accordance with Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards. During the previous summit in July 2018, the group postponed the decision on anti-money laundering measures related to cryptocurrencies until the results of the FATF standards review were received. At their latest gathering, the G20 leaders acknowledged the necessity of deploying all available political tools to promote global growth, paying special attention to cryptocurrencies and the “digitalization" of the global economy. The declaration states that digital assets regulation is intended to support "an open and resilient financial system, grounded in agreed international standards," which is, in turn, necessary for sustainable economic growth. To achieve this, the politicians have agreed to create a crypto regulatory policy compliant with the standards of FATF, an inter-governmental body created in 1989 to set and promote standards for dealing with money laundering, terrorist financing, and other issues that pose a threat to the global financial system. —— Do you think world leaders have a well understanding of blockchain technology and the importance of cryptocurrency?

Instant cryptocurrency exchange ShapeShift.io has become the latest cryptocurrency entity to succumb to user data collection as part of a major overhaul to its services. In a blog post on September 4, CEO Erik Voorhees stated that all ShapeShift users would ultimately face “mandatory” know-your-customer (KYC) requirements in order to exchange cryptocurrency. Voorhess had this to say, "“To some who have followed our history, it may seem a curious development; ShapeShift is known as ‘the exchange without accounts,’ a model we pioneered in order to reduce friction and protect customers,” he admitted." Continuing, Voorhees claimed the plan to collect data “sucked.” “We would prefer if the collection of personal information was not a mandatory element,” he wrote, pledging ShapeShift would continue to promote privacy. “We remain committed to that cause and it is best served if we are smart about our approach. —— Do you use ShapeShift to trade cryptocurrencies?

Although there is still no official announcement, it is possible that Bank of America is preparing to embrace blockchain technology. The blockchain can be used for international transactions in place of the typical slow, error-prone and expensive SWIFT system. This has lead to speculations that Ripple might form a working relationship with Bank of America. The banking giant is already a customer of the company which is quickly gaining a roster of industry players attracted to their xRapid platform or to promises of promoting capital liquidity. There is no doubt that the company seeks to develop products that enhance the operations of traditional banking institutions, making them faster and easier. The company spearheads the simplification process of cross-border payments. Therefore, this explains why the cryptocurrency firm is creating increasingly cutting-edge tech-based products to facilitate such transactions. These products include xCurrent, xRapid and xVia. —— Do you think Ripple and Bank of America will work out a deal soon? Share a few words!
