  • Singaporean dollar gets a blockchain token upgrade
    Singapore is in on the blockchain race. The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), in partnership with Deloitte, just released a report announcing their blockchain project, “Project Ubin: SGD on Distributed Ledger.” The prototyping project, which was made possible in collaboration with several banks and tech companies, will ultimately create a tokenized issue of the Singapore dollar on the Ethereum blockchain, which they refer to as SGD-on-ledger. The move affirms Singapore’s friendly stance towards blockchain technology. Last month, the MAS said they had no plans of regulating cryptocurrencies yet. They state that although cryptocurrencies are frequently used for illegal activities, the digital tokens themselves are not to blame. Hence, digital currency exchanges and similar services are subject to the country’s anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing laws. ICO’s are also required to follow certain guidelines lest they set off securities laws violations. ...

  • Becky’s Affiliated: A beginner’s step-by-step guide on how to buy Bitcoin Cash
    The purpose of this post is not to convince you to buy Bitcoin Cash (BCH), its to tell you how to buy BCH if you want it. What I will also tell you is my inside sources claim its still a good time to buy, aka the value will climb higher and keep climbing. With this privy information at my fingertips, I decided to part with £500 to get familiar with the somewhat complex process of obtaining and storing the currency…and hopefully gain some personal wealth while I’m at it. To give you the background, I posted on Facebook after the BCH price surge about a week ago, asking if I should by BCH ASAP or wait a few days.

  • DASH/USD and LTC/USD Technical Analysis November 23 2017
    Hello and welcome to News BTC’s Market Outlook November. DASH/USD DASH continues to power ahead, touching $575 during the trading session on Wednesday. I suspect that we will probably get a pullback though, and at this point you need to see that happen to get enough value out of a trade. The stochastic oscillator is crossing in the overbought level, and the next major area of order flow is very likely to be $500. A pull back to that area would be very enticing. LTC/USD Litecoin has been a bit stagnant over the last 24 to 48 hours, as we struggle with the $72 level above. I think that we will continue to find support a $68 however, so this offers opportunities to pick up Litecoin and cheaper levels going forward. It’s not until we break down below ...

  • Bitcoin Cash to introduce new address format to avoid confusion between BTC and BCH addresses
    The new address format seems to be gearing up for even bigger plans. Because the legacy chain (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) share a common address format to date, it has caused confusion and resulted in some users losing their money after sending BTC to a BCH address, and vice versa. In an effort to put an end to this problem, Bitcoin ABC’s lead developer Amaury Séchet is proposing a new address format for BCH, one that will make it incompatible with the BTC chain. According to Séchet, the new address format, called cashaddr, not only helps end the confusion. It also prepares the Bitcoin Cash system for further upgrades in the future, including multiparty smart contracts. “Using a new format will prevent users from mistakenly sending money on the wrong chain. It also accept payloads up to 512 ...

  • New Development, Bulletproofs, Can Make Bitcoin Transactions Confidential
    A new development could have a major impact on Bitcoin, Litecoin, and other similar platforms. A group of researchers at Stanford University, University College London, and Blockstream have announced a method for making transactions truly confidential. Known as Bulletproofs, this technology would not only enable privacy, but it would also aid in scalability, enabling many more transactions on the blockchain than is currently possible. Bitcoin is the most significant crypto that could benefit from this development. It is often described as confidential, but in reality it is not. Tracing transactions is difficult, but possible. Some competing cryptos, such as Monero, Dash, and Zcash do have this capability. In fact, Monero’s ability to process truly confidential transactions is considered its most significant asset. The extent to which confidentiality will give these cryptos an advantage over Bitcoin in the long run is ...
