Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining explained

https://www.udemy.com/blockchain-for-business-the-new-industrial-revolution/?couponCode=YOUTUBE Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining explained with the the Byzantine Generals Problem. The Byzantine Generals problem was first introduced in a computer science paper published in 1982. The problem discussed in the paper is that reliable computer systems must be able to function effectively in the presence of faulty components that may send conflicting information to different parts of the system. This issue is even more acute when we talk about decentralized computer networks. Imagine the following thought experiment: The Byzantine army has surrounded an enemy city. The army is organized into several units. Each unit is commanded by a general and they all need to come up with a coordinated plan of action. However, they are located away from each other and the only means to communicate among themselves is via messages. To make things more complicated, one or more of the generals are possibly traitors. The presence of disloyal generals means that misleading messages could be sent aiming to disrupt any coordinated plan of action, be it attack or retreat. To find a successful solution to this conundrum, the Byzantine army needs to find its path to coordinated action, one way or another. To achieve this, the Byzantine army needs an algorithm that works effectively towards a coordinated outcome where the loyal generals follow it and the traitors don’t. Now that you are familiar with the problem, let’s see its solution. It is called the Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm. Over the years, there have been several proposed theoretical solutions involving game theory and math. The first practical implementation of Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm came with the Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work. In this case the “generals” are nodes on the Bitcoin network, also known as “miners”. A network node is a connection point that can receive, create, store and send data across a network. In other words, nodes are the connected dots that make up a network. To simplify, think of it in the following way. In the image we traditionally use to depict a blockchain, every single computer is a separate node. They are all connected and can receive, create, store, and send data to each other. In the context of the Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm, the important concept to grasp is that these mining nodes start from the assumption that nobody else on the network can be trusted. Proof-of-Work secures network consensus even in the presence of non-compliant nodes. That is, even if there are some Byzantine generals who are not acting in the army’s best interest, coordinated action can still be achieved. Let’s see how this mechanism works in Bitcoin. As we all know by now, Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network where all activities are done by its users through appropriate software and hardware. These activities include making transactions, receiving transactions, and verifying and transmitting transactions. Now, this is where we need to introduce the concept of “mining”, which many of you have probably heard. Mining is an activity, carried out by network participants, which involves Proof-of-Work and results in generating new coins as a reward for the miner who successfully did this Proof-of-Work first for each new block.

DASH Coin: Digital Cash Cryptocurrency & Decentralized Governance by Blockchain?
 
03:17
Dash was first released in January 2014 by Evan Duffield as XCoin(XCO), and later relaunched as Darkcoin, via a fork of the Litecoin code. Duffield's intention was a create a more private, decentralized cryptocurrency capable of processing faster transactions. Throughout 2014, Dash, then known as Darkcoin, was mired in controversy over its use in dark web markets which was encouraged by its superior anonymity. This hampered the coin's progress until it was rebranded as Dash in March 2015. Dash has a total supply of 18 million coins, with 8 million coins currently in supply. Dash reduces its coin emission rate by roughly 7% every 210240 blocks(roughly 1 year). A block is mined every 2.6 minutes. All 18 million coins will be in circulation by the year 2477. Dash ecosystem is a unique two-tiered network comprised of miners and masternodes, which are full nodes. Miners perform network functions by validating transactions and creating new blocks, while masternodes enforce rules and perform governance functions. The X11 hashing algorithm is used for mining Dash via a proof-of-work consensus protocol. X11 is energy efficient and highly ASIC resistant. The second layer of masternodes network uses a consensus model known as proof-of-service. Anyone can run a masternode by making a commitment of 1000 Dash. The reward for running a masternode is contingent on the number of masternodes in the network as 45% of block reward is shared amongst all masternodes. Miners also receive 45% of the block reward, while 10% is reserved for the Dash maintenance fund or the treasury system. InstantSend and PrivateSend are functions performed by the secondary layer of masternodes. Masternodes can instantly verify a transaction through consensus and broadcast to the network, which will then be included in next block mined. Once verified by masternodes, the transaction inputs are locked and conflicting transactions are rejected by the network.

Consensus and Mining on the Blockchain
 
08:03
Consensus and Mining on the Blockchain - https://blockgeeks.com/ What is consensus on the blockchain? Consensus basically means that all nodes in a decentralized network must come to an agreement on what is the truth. For bitcoin, all nodes must agree on the transaction history. In a centralized system, all the participants trust that the authority will behave honestly and share the truth with the rest of the members. Since only the trusted party has the power to modify the data, it is straightforward to achieve consensus. Everyone simply accepts and believes what the central authority says. For example, you simply trust your bank will put the correct balance for your account whenever you send and receive money. However, in a decentralized network, there is no central authority and each node does not trust any other nodes. The challenge is how can all the nodes agree on what is the correct state of the shared data? In other words, how can they all achieve consensus with mutual distrust? In computer science, this is known as the Byzantine Generals’ problem, which was originally presented in 1982. The Byzantine Generals’ problem is a description of consensus problems in computer networks. More specifically, how can distributed computer systems handle malfunctioning parts that give conflicting information to different parts of the system? This problem is abstractly described as a group of generals of the Byzantine army camped with their troops surrounding an enemy city. The generals must agree upon a common battle plan and they can only communicate with each other using messengers. However, one or more of the generals may be traitors who will try to confuse the others. The problem is to find an algorithm that ensures the loyal generals will all reach an agreement on the battle plan regardless of what the traitors do. In the case of bitcoin, each general could be thought of as a node in the network and all the honest nodes must agree on what is the true history of transactions. A malicious node can send conflicting transactions to different parts of the network. For example, Bob is a traitor and he sends a transaction stating he sent 10 bitcoins to Alice to one part of the network while sending another transaction stating he sent 10 bitcoins to Carroll to other parts of the network. Let’s assume that Bob only has 10 bitcoins in total, so he is trying to double spend his bitcoins. So what algorithm can be used in the bitcoin network to ensure all the honest nodes recognize Bob sent 10 bitcoins to Alice but reject that he sent 10 bitcoins to Carroll? Bitcoin uses the proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm to ensure all the honest nodes reach a consensus on the true history of transactions. The PoW algorithm concept was first developed in the early 90s to prevent email spamming. It required computers that want to send an email to do some computation work which took some time to complete before sending out the email. This reduced the amount of spam an email server could get in a given period of time. In bitcoin, PoW is used to govern the mechanics of how a new block is added to the blockchain. In the previous lesson, we learned that blockchain is append-only and once a block is added, it cannot be modified. Therefore, we need to ensure that all the honest nodes in the system will add the exact same block to their local copy of the blockchain to achieve consensus. So how does PoW achieve this? First, let’s imagine that all the nodes in the network are allowed to create a new block at anytime instantly. If this were the case, the network would get flooded with too many new blocks, and no one would be able to agree on which of the new blocks should be added to the blockchain. However, in reality, in order for a node to create a new block and broadcast that to the other nodes, it must do some computation work. The computation work is quite intensive and for bitcoin it takes roughly 10 minutes on average for any node to complete. Once a node completes this work, it broadcasts the block to other nodes who verify it. Therefore, all the nodes in the network that want to create a new block must race against each other to be the first one to complete this computation and broadcast their block. This way all the other honest nodes will receive the new block and verify that the proof of work was valid and the transactions inside the block are also correct and then add the block to their local copy of the blockchain.

Bitcoin Plunges After Crypto Exchange Accused On Fraud
 
00:33
Bitcoin plunged after cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex drained at least $700 million from the reserves backing its digital coin, Tether. According to a lawsuit filed by the New York Attorney General, Bitfinex is trying to cover up $850 million in missing funds, The attorney general's office accused it of "ongoing fraud" and engaging in "undisclosed, conflicted transactions. Bitfinex was allegedly trying to cover losses by transferring money out of Tether reserve funds." Bitfinex said the claims were "written in bad faith and riddled with false assertions" and pledged to fight the order. Business Insider reports that crypto markets lost as much as $10 billion late Thursday. https://www.businessinsider.com/stock-market-news-opening-bell-april-26-2019-2019-4 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

Are cryptocurrencies currency or property? The US Treasury can't decide.
 
07:27
Are cryptocurrencies property or currency? It’s a great question – I wish that I was able to give you clear guidance on what the United States government considers it to be. But, I can’t – and I’m a Tax Attorney. https://www.irsmedic.com/blog/2018/06/cryptocurrency-regulations.html It’s not that I don’t know what the rules are. I know the rules better than most. But, I am hit with an immediate conflict that i want to share with you. That’s legal term – virtual currency. I’m throwing that term out to you for a reason. That’s a term that FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement network, a division of the US Treasury) calls cryptos. Why? So that it can apply the rules of the Bank Secrecy Act to cryptocurrency. If it were to be property, the argument would that the BSA could not apply and FinCEN would be powerless to regulate. Now, consider this -- the Bank Secrecy Act was written by Congress in 1970 – requiring financial institutions in the United States to assist U.S. government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering. Bitcoin was created in 2008. So, FinCEN is using 48-year-old legislation to regulate a modern technology – to regulate cryptocurrency exchanges like banks. Even though cryptos are not banks. Not at all. Now The IRS – another division within the United States Treasury – has announced that it considers virtual currency as property. So for purposes of regulating transactions under the BSA, the government considers cryptocurrency to be currency. But, on the other hand crypto currency is to be viewed as property for federal tax purposes and applies tax principles applicable to property transactions. In other words, the IRS wants to be sure is doesn’t miss out on crypto gains it could tax and FinCEN wants to regulate cryptos, hence we are left with conflicting rules. The way that the regulation is currently imposed has caused cryptocurrency to lose the utility that it was originally intended to have. I don’t want to get into whether this is a good or bad thing. But, because most of the exchanges are in compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act – the original utility of anonymity has been destroyed. Maybe you’re ok with that – maybe you’re not. But, it’s irrefutable that the tax policy is designed to discourage the use of virtual currency from being used as it as originally intended – as currency. In order to be in compliance, the cryptocurrency user has to report every transaction he makes. In other words, the cryptocurrency user can’t walk into a cool hipster coffee shop and use cryptocurrency to buy a cup of coffee without having to calculate the capital gain or loss on the transaction. Now, this at first may seem like a minor inconvenience. But, in order to do this accurately the user needs to be able to specify the particular units of bitcoin to be used in the transaction – not exactly as practical as handing cash over the counter to the barista. It’s no wonder that certain studies report that 59% of Americans don’t report appropriate cryptocurrency-based capital gains to the IRS. I have a feeling that figure is much much higher. As of right now, in 2018, the government is applying a limited regulatory structure to cryptocurrency. Nonetheless, the government is applying an antiquated regulatory structure to cryptocurrency. It’s to be expected. The folks working within the United States Treasury are dealing with a new technology neither the BSA or the Income tax ever contemplated. Of course they are not going to be about to come up with a cohesive rule. In their defense, even the most astute regulators didn’t expect the rapid increase in the valuation of cryptocurrencies. Nor did they expect Wall Street to express such interest in investing and speculating on cryptocurrencies. So now it’s the duty of the people in the communities surrounding cryptocurrency to make their opinions known about what to do about the regulatory puzzle surrounding cryptocurrency. For regulatory purposes, should cryptocurrency be viewed as currency or property? Now confusing matters is that all currency is technically property but not all property is currency. But how should a regulatory framework be designed for cryptocurrency? Should government have any involvement at all? What should we do about the current conflicting interpretations by FinCEN and the IRS? Parent & Parent LLP 144 South Main Street Wallingford, CT 06492 (203) 269-6699 [email protected]

By 2020, Bitcoin could be using as much energy as the entire world
 
00:57
An environmental researcher modeled pessimistic and optimistic scenarios for Bitcoin’s energy consumption over the next few years. These are two possibly conflicting fascinations, as previously pointed out by Christopher Malmo here at Motherboard. That's because bitcoin is incredibly energy intensive: at the time of Malmo's piece, he calculated that a single bitcoin transaction requires as much electricity as the daily consumption of 1.6 American households, and that number has increased since then. "Adopting Bitcoin as a major currency anytime in the next few decades," he wrote, "would just exacerbate anthropogenic climate change by needlessly increasing electricity consumption until it's too late." As I have some experience in developing energy scenarios, I wanted to see how this could develop into the future. My findings weren't much more encouraging. According to my calculations, if the bitcoin network keeps expanding the way it has done recently, it could lead to a continuous electricity consumption that lies between the output of a small power plant and the total consumption of a small country like Denmark by 2020. What determines the energy consumption of the bitcoin network? Let's start with the basics. Bitcoin transactions are validated and processed by a decentralized network of volunteers, usually hosting dedicated hardware to perform calculations, called "hashes," to find solutions to a complex mathematical algorithm in return for a reward of brand-new bitcoins plus some transaction fees. This network of so-called bitcoin "miners" ensures the security of the system, but unfortunately also consumes a lot of electricity—currently about 350 megawatts according to my own calculations, which is roughly equivalent to the electricity demand of 280,000 American households.

Bitcoin And Blockchain: The Nascent Technology Of Tyranny 2.0
 
43:39
My take on the future of Bitcoin (or, rather, blockchain technologies) in the creation of a full-spectrum tyranny. /// This is based on the work of Sam Gerrans' THE QUR'AN: A COMPLETE REVELATION where the Qur'an is exhaustively examined on the basis of the internal Qur'anic evidence rather than on the conflicting and usurping literature called Hadith which was developed some 200 years after the Qur'anic revelation. // The full text of THE QUR'AN: A COMPLETE REVELATION – which comprises 536,000 words, including 9,000 notes and 24 articles – may be downloaded free or bought in paper editions for 10% less than on Amazon at quranite.com // BUY PAPER BOOKS FOR 10% LESS THAN ON AMAZON: https://www.quranite.com/store HELP ME KEEP DOING THIS: https://www.quranite.com/contribute WEBSITE: https://www.quranite.com MEET OTHER QUR'AN-ALONE MUSLIMS https://www.meetquranites.com FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/TheQuranACompleteRevelation/ CONTACT https://www.quranite.com/contact // SAM GERRANS' YOUTUBE PRESENTATIONS AS FREE PODCASTS YOUTUBE PRESENTATIONS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/quranite-podcast/id1263008950 THE QUR'AN: FULL AUDIOBOOK: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-quran-full-audiobook/id1263008808 PODCAST SERVER: http://www.quranitecast.com/ // My view is that this technology is going to pervade everything. Blockchain is going to be the new paper. GRANULARITY So although Bitcoin just transfers financial transactions right now, when I talk about the levels of granularity above (breath, thoughts) just remember what we have already been through. And remember, transactions do not have to be financial. Speech is a form of transaction. Something is passing from one entity to another. A chemical reaction is a transaction: one set of atomic characteristics changing from one state to another. Downstream: combine this with nano technologies and you get into a realm where transactions can not only be recorded by a blockchain protocol (i.e. descriptive: what has happened) but allowed or not allowed by it (i.e. prescriptive: what may happen). If that becomes the case – and much of the underlying technologies are either in place or nascent – then: * entire human and other domains / sections may be activated, deactivated, stimulated or suppressed: * procreation * access to the frontal lobe * memory * energy levels * aggression * mood * hormones * use of particular words or concepts by the mind TYRANNY Like all tyrannies, it must have a foundational mythos. In the case of cryptocurrencies, there is Satoshi Nakamoto. The story is just geeky and freaky enough to have people believing it. There is a Morpheus-like savant out there who created this technology which is going to set the world free, and now all the Java programmers who got beaten up at school but want to do something significant with their lives can now play at being Mel Gibson in Braveheart. Come on. Wake up. WHY THE ELITE LOVE BLOCKCHAIN This is genius. This is not topdown tyranny (at least, not obviously so) it is crowdsourced tyranny. The Satanic system wants to usurp God and to simulate God: God: There is no god save he The Living, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtake him. Unto him belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. Who can intercede with him save by his leave? He knows what is at their time and what following them. And they encompass nothing of his knowledge save what he wills. His throne overspreads the heavens and the earth And the sustaining thereof wearies him not. And he is the Exalted, the Tremendous. (2:255) So what is this simulating? It is simulating God’s optical fibre 10 gazillion megabit per nano second quark level block chain of all transactions. And everything they did is in the written records. And everything small and great is written down. (54:52-53) CONCLUSIONS What is happening is the creation of a fully decentralised open source peer-to-peer point-of-sale tyranny where your only problem will be not how to escape from the prison but how to ensure you remain an inmate. This is not anarcho-capitalists overthrowing the banks. This is tyranny as crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. This is Internet IP-address tracking on steroids. Facebook plus NSA squared and then cubed. It is Skynet meets the IRS. It is a tyranny in which rebellion will be not only impossible; it will be unthinkable. The foundations of that tyranny are built. What we are witnessing now is the development of the edifice.

Bitcoin!! 10 things you NEED TO KNOW about Cryptocurrency!!

Bitcoin!! 10 things you NEED TO KNOW about Cryptocurrency!! Bitcoin is a term that you are hearing more and more often lately and everybody has heard of at least one success story of somebody investing a small amount into it and becoming a millionaire seemingly overnight. The trouble is, though…can these stories be trusted? And…more to the point, what exactly is a bitcoin and what can you do with them? Lucky for you, you don’t need to look any further because we are about to answer the key questions you might have about Bitcoin and Crypto-Currency. And, more importantly, you should be able to decide whether the investment plunge is right for you! Learn about Bitcoin predictions, Ethereum futures, Ripple, and Litecoin! Brought to you by Zero2Hero!! Don't forget to subscribe here! https://goo.gl/NXuChu Click here to find out about the most INVASIVE Animal Species Introduced By Humans!!! https://youtu.be/GK3AQZHvKNA Number 10: Where did Bitcoin come from? Despite Bitcoin being so popular these days, it has surprisingly been around since 2009, but nobody knows for sure who created it. All that is known is that the creator used the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto and then…he disappeared, leaving behind a fortune in bitcoin and the start of the world’s first online currency. Despite being around for nearly a decade, they suddenly burst onto everybody’s radar in 2013, following a massive increase in their value. Part of what has made it increase in value is quite simple, as with any supply and demand chain, the greater the need for something, the higher the price becomes. Currently bitcoin is around 100,000 times more valuable today than they were back in 2010 and, as of 2018, they continue to grow in value. Number 9: What is a bitcoin? For this we need to start with the real basics to get you up to speed. A bitcoin is essentially a line of computer code that holds monetary value, these lines of code can be found just about anywhere, and are created by high performance computers, called miners…but more on those later. Simply put, Bitcoin is an online currency; also known as a cryptocurrency, that holds essentially the same value anywhere in the world. Being an online currency there is no physical object that you can hold yet, once you own one, they can be sold by you for a profit or you can hold them in the hope that they raise in value, much like you would with gold coins or stocks. One advantage of bitcoin is that it can be stored on your computers’ hard drive, offline, and away from potential hackers, online storage options are out there but there you always have the possibility of being hacked and having your hard-earned bitcoin taken from you. That said, over 30 billion dollars in bitcoin is estimated to have been lost due to the owner forgetting their passwords or the hardware crashing, once this happens the bitcoin is lost forever and cannot be retrieved. Number 8: Is Bitcoin safe? This question has 2 answers and so I will break it up a bit. First, with regards to your own safety in buying and selling bitcoin, essentially your safety does rely on your own spidey sense. In itself, bitcoin is safer than most other financial services and offers a high level of anonymity when doing business. This can work both in your favor and against you. On one side, you are relatively safe in that anybody you deal with has little more information that your pseudonym used in transactions…which makes it difficult for them to get any of your sensitive, personal information. On the other hand…it works both ways. when working with somebody on a deal it’s always possible that they can take your money and disappear before giving you the required amount of bitcoin. Transactions should always be taken seriously and should only be done with a trusted source. Second, as an investment, you need to use your own discretion. Bitcoin is considered a high-risk investment, in a volatile market, and the price can change at any time, it’s more a matter of how lucky you are feeling. Do your homework. And, if you feel like things are only going to get better then you could always take the risk…bearing in mind that it could always change on a moment’s notice. Personally, I would recommend that you DON’T rely solely on what people or even brokers tell you, but do your own market research at the time of sale and purchase…just like with any other investment. With all of this information in mind, as of early 2018, bitcoin has no sign of slowing and there are even reported cases of people selling their houses to buy into bitcoin. Do with that information what you will.

Bitcoin Q&A: Careers in open blockchain development?
 
06:00
A question from a soon-to-be computer science graduate about career options in open blockchain development. Should a young person go the corporate route or the entrepreneurial route? What benefits and risks do the options entail? Would a "traditional" job still have the lifelong guarantee of security they used to? Being willing to take risks and fail gracefully, like Bitcoin, in the early years of your life by doing work that matters to you. This question is from the November monthly Patreon session, which took place on November 17th 2018.

Transcript: During the past year, the digital currency Bitcoin has entered the public consciousness. Although mostly ignored by the mainstream media before 2017, as Bitcoin’s value began a rise, media attention—and often skepticism—followed. From March to December 2017, the price of a Bitcoin rose from about $1000 to more than $19,000. Then Bitcoin’s value corrected sharply to below $6000 by February 2018. This volatility has brought attention to Bitcoin, and also many conflicting opinions. Some people say Bitcoin could transform the financial system, while others say it is all hype and that Bitcoin is merely one of the biggest financial bubbles in history. How Does Bitcoin Work? Bitcoin is a digital asset created nearly a decade ago by a person under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Unlike other transaction media such as credit or debit cards, Bitcoin requires no third party, instead, it is decentralized and operates on a peer-to-peer basis. In order to transact, each user has a public key and a private key, which are large numerical strings used to encrypt and decrypt digital content. The public key allows other people to deposit money into a person’s account, and the private key allows that person to make payments to others. Bitcoin’s foundation is the blockchain, a digital ledger composed of all historical bitcointransactions. Copies of the entire blockchain exist on all the computers in the Bitcoin network. The blockchain is segmented into individual “blocks” which include multiple transactions. Every computer simultaneously gathers unconfirmed transactions into blocks while racing to solve an extremely complex math problem. Once one computer solves the math problem, its block is added to the blockchain confirming the transactions in the block, and that computer is rewarded with a certain number of newly created bitcoins. At this time, all other computers discard their blocks and start over. Over time, the number of bitcoins a computer can win by solving the math problem decreases. Once 21 million bitcoins are created, no more bitcoins will be created. As of January, 2018, 16.8 million bitcoins had been mined (https://cointelegraph.com/news/80-of-all-bitcoins-already-mined-only-42-million-coins-left-until-supply-cap). The incentive to continue confirming Bitcoin transactions and keeping the blockchain running will be transaction fees. How Do You Buy Bitcoin? There are numerous exchanges that people can buy bitcoin with their bank account. About 3000 Bitcoin ATMs also exist. Coin ATM Radar helps individuals find Bitcoin ATMs near them. You can even buy bitcoin in person using cash. The website LocalBitcoins allows people to find others in their area who are selling bitcoin.

IOTA tutorial 1: What is IOTA and some terminology explained
 
15:38
If you like this video and want to support me, go this page for my donation crypto addresses: https://www.youtube.com/c/mobilefish/about Update: In this video i mentioned Curl and the vulnerability found in this algorithm. However it seems that this is NOT correct. Please read: https://blog.iota.org/official-iota-foundation-response-to-the-digital-currency-initiative-at-the-mit-media-lab-part-1-72434583a2 This is part 1 of the IOTA tutorial. In this video series different topics will be explained which will help you to understand IOTA. It is recommended to watch each video sequentially as I may refer to certain IOTA topics explained earlier. IOTA is not an acronym for Internet of Things, (IoT) but it just mean something very small. David Sønstebø, Sergey Ivancheglo, Dominik Schiener and Serguei Popov founded IOTA in 2015. IOTA Foundation main focus is Internet of Things and the Machine Economy but this technology is well suited for payments between humans as well. The IOTA white paper can be found at: https://iota.org/IOTA_Whitepaper.pdf All IOTA's which will ever exist have already been created.  The total IOTA supply is: 2,779,530,283,277,761 IOTAs IOTA features - Scalability The network becomes stronger when the number of transactions increases. IOTA can achieve high transaction throughput. - Decentralisation IOTA has no miners. Every transaction maker is also a transaction validator which means every transaction maker actively participates in the consensus. - No transaction fees IOTA has no transaction fees which means IOTA can be used for micropayments. - Quantum computing protection Quantum computers will be able to crack current data encryption methods much faster than current classical computers. IOTA uses the Winternitz One-Time Signature Scheme which is a quantum-resistant algorithm. See: https://eprint.iacr.org/2011/191.pdf IOTA is the 3rd generation public permissionless distributed ledger, based on a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). IOTA called this DAG the tangle. The tangle is NOT the same as the Blockchain. A tangle is a data structure based on Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). Each transaction always validates 2 previous non validated transactions. Directed means the graph is pointing to one direction. Tips are the unconfirmed transactions in the tangle graph. Height is the length of the longest oriented path to the genesis. Depth is the length of the longest reverse-oriented path to some tip. Making a transaction is a 3 step process: - Signing: Your node (computer / mobile) creates a transaction and sign it with your private key. - Tip Selection: Your node chooses two other unconfirmed transactions (tips) using the Random Walk Monte Carlo (RWMC) algorithm. - Proof of Work: Your node checks if the two transactions are not conflicting. Next, the node must do some Proof of Work (PoW) by solving a cryptographic puzzle (hashcash). Hashcash works by repeatedly hashing the same data with a tiny variation until a hash is found with a certain number of leading zero bits. This PoW is to prevent spam and Sybil attacks. The goal of the Random Walk Monte Carlo algorithm is to generate fair samples from some difficult distribution. The Random Walk Monte Carlo (RWMC) algorithm is used in two ways: - To choose two other unconfirmed transactions (tips) when creating a transaction. - And to determine if a transaction is confirmed. To determine the confirmation level of your transaction we need the depth to start from and we execute the Random Walk Monte Carlo algorithm N times, the probability of your transaction being accepted is therefore M of N. M being the number of times you land on a tip that has a path to your transaction. If you execute RWMC 100 times, and 60 tips has a path to your transaction, than your transaction is 60% confirmed. It is up the the merchant to decide to accept the transaction and exchange goods. It is the same as Bitcoins where you want to wait for at least 6 blocks for high value transactions. Transactions with bigger depths takes longer to be validated. An IOTA Reference Implementation (IRI), wallet and libraries are available at: https://github.com/iotaledger To setup a full node you need to tether with neighbours by exchanging your ip address with theirs. Once you have sent a transaction from an address, you should never use this address again. A tangle can get branch off and back into the network. This is called partitioning. The Coordinator or ‘Coo’ for short, are several full nodes scattered across the world run by the IOTA Foundation. It creates zero value transactions called milestones which full nodes reference to.

6 Things You Didn't Know About a Blockchain
 
09:48
Blockchain explained! Here’s how to understand the blockchain & the technology behind Bitcoin & cryptocurrency. A blockchain is essentially a super secure form of record-keeping. It’s made up of a list of digital transactions, information, data, or whatever else you can think of, that are grouped together in “blocks” then added to a row of past blocks to form a “chain,” hence the name “blockchain.” What powers the blockchain is a network of computers (or nodes) working together to verify each transaction & adding it to the chain of blocks so it’s viewable to the public & can’t be changed or edited retroactively. This makes it virtually impossible for human error to ever occur, therefore ensuring the blockchain’s long-lasting integrity. Blockchains operate autonomously, meaning they’re self-governed & their actions are carried out without any outside control or influence whatsoever. In the case of Bitcoin, it solves the problem of double-spending by ensuring that each unique transaction doesn’t occur more than once. Like I said earlier, data on the blockchain is resistant to any modifications. The only time it can be retroactively altered is when a majority of the computers in the network agree to let these modifications take place. But doing so consequently alters subsequent blocks. If I wanted to send you $1,000 using a traditional bank wire, I’d have to pay between $35-$45 in fees & wait between 3-5 business days for you to get your money. It’s because blockchain technology’s autonomous nature allows for transactions to take place directly from one person to another without the need for third-party services to regulate the transaction. It simply facilitates the transaction for cheaper & faster. It’s also extremely secure. Not only is its foundation based on cryptography, but its decentralized nature means there’s no single access point in which hackers can exploit it, making vulnerabilities within the system practically non-existent. Basing it in one specific location makes it “centralized.” Blockchains are “decentralized,” meaning their information is stored on thousands, if not, millions, of network computers all across the globe. Any hacker looking to taint the data would have to access each & every one of these computers at the same exact time! Ledgers based on blockchain technology are also open & public, making them easily verifiable. Anyone can view any transaction for any amount at any time, while still keeping user identity anonymous. Additionally, it’s designed to check in with itself in a sort of self-auditing manner. Satoshi Nakamoto was the first to conceptualize & implement blockchain technology when he introduced Bitcoin to the public. As I said before, the Bitcoin blockchain is upheld by a network of nodes that verify each & every transaction in a process as “mining.” Mining involves setting up a computer & connecting it to Bitcoin’s blockchain network using a client designed specifically for validating & relaying transactions. Once connected, the computer is automatically required to download a copy of the entire blockchain. It’s at this point that the computer can begin solving complex mathematical puzzles to verify transactions in a process called “proof-of-work.” Once a puzzle has been solved, the transaction is added into a block, a new copy of the ledger is distributed to the entire network, & the miner is rewarded with a certain amount of Bitcoin. Now, say you’ve sent me 1 BTC, the transaction has been verified, & it’s been added to the latest block; since then, another newer block has been created & added to the chain. It’s said that the block in which our transaction can be located is “1 block deep.” Most merchants & exchanges won’t consider the transaction confirmed until it’s 6 blocks deep or more. Doing so prevents any possibility of double-spending from occurring. These days, a new group of BTC transactions is accepted & formed into a block every 10 minutes on average. There are currently over 1,100 new cryptocurrencies available, most of which use different technology. Bitcoin’s primary function is a transfer of value directly from one person to another...but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. One such other cryptocurrency is Ethereum, which we’ll discuss in further detail later since it warrants its own video. To give you the gist of it though, Ethereum allows for smart contracts to function & also acts as a platform for developers to create & deploy other decentralized applications aka “Dapps.” Storj will take your photos, break each photo up into smaller files, encrypt each file for safety & security purposes, then distribute them to be stored across other hard drives within the Storj network.

Thank you so much!Cryptocurrencies fell amid reignited regulatory worries and questions around the legitimacy of so-called "stablecoin" tether. The entire market shed about $10 billion in value in the space of an hour late Thursday, CoinMarketCap data showed. This after the New York attorney general accused the operator of bitcoin exchange Bitfinex and tether issuer Tether Limited of hiding an $850 million loss. The state's top lawyer alleges Bitfinex used at least $700 million from Tether's cash reserves to cover up the apparent loss of $850 million of client and corporate funds. Its findings were detailed in papers filed with the Manhattan Supreme Court. Tether is a cryptocurrency that is meant to be pegged to the U.S. dollar — otherwise known as a stablecoin. Worries have been raised over whether Tether Limited holds enough dollars to back all the tokens in circulation. The price of bitcoin, the world's largest cryptocurrency, has fallen 4% over the last 24 hours, according to industry website CoinDesk. In the same time period, the prices of ethereum and XRP — the world's second and third-largest virtual currencies by market value — also dropped 6% and 3%, respectively. Tether's price fell over 1%, coming off its dollar peg. The attorney general's office said Thursday that Bitfinex handed $850 million to a Panama entity called Crypto Capital without disclosing it to investors. Executives at Bitfinex and Tether then allegedly "engaged in a series of conflicted corporate transactions" — where Bitfinex gave itself access to Tether's cash reserves. "Those transactions — which also have not been disclosed to investors — treat Tether's cash reserves as Bitfinex's corporate slush fund, and are being used to hide Bitfinex's massive, undisclosed losses and inability to handle customer withdrawals," the attorney general's office said. A court order issued by New York's legal chief requires the operators of Bitfinex and Tether Limited to cease further losses of its U.S. dollar reserves. They are also barred from deleting or permitting others to delete potentially relevant documents and communications. Bitfinex said in response that the attorney general's court filings were "written in bad faith" and "riddled with false assertions." It flatly denied the alleged $850 million loss, stating the funds were "not lost but have been, in fact, seized and safeguarded." "Bitfinex and Tether have been fully cooperative with the New York attorney general's office, as both companies are with all regulators," the crypto exchange said in a statement on its website. "The New York attorney general's office should focus its efforts on trying to aid and support our recovery efforts." The company added that both Bitfinex and Tether are "financially strong," and said they will challenge the order by New York. Tether is one of the most notable stablecoins on the market. It's meant to be backed 1:1 by U.S. dollars to provide a stable value, and is often used as an alternative to government-backed money for crypto trading. But it's not been without controversy. Questions have arisen over whether it actually has enough dollar reserves to justify that dollar peg and whether it was used to manipulate bitcoin's huge price spike in 2017. Charles Hayter, CEO of digital currency comparison firm CryptoCompare, said the New York fraud probe into tether was affecting the m...

INDIA IS BEHIND THE REAL SUCCESS OF CARDANO ADA ?
 
02:05
WHAT ARE INCENTIVES? Incentives in the context of a cryptocurrency are ways of encouraging people to participate in the protocol, follow it faithfully, and behave in a way that is in the best interests of other users and the system. In the case of Bitcoin, this means mining blocks and including as many valid transactions in those blocks as possible. For Cardano, it means being online and creating a block when that user has been elected slot leader, and to participate in the election process of choosing a slot leader to create a block. Participating in the Cardano protocol incurs far less computational costs than participating in Bitcoin. Nevertheless, having slot leaders online when it is their turn to create a block or to participate in the election process is important for both the security and efficiency of the protocol. MONETARY INCENTIVES When we talk about incentives, we mean monetary incentives in the form of Ada. In exchange for participating in the protocol and supporting the efficient operation of the system, stakeholders get rewarded by a certain amount of Ada. However, there are other types of incentives as well: factors such as idealism or morality or the general desire to “do the right thing”. The aim is that monetary and moral incentives should align perfectly. However, this ideal is not always achieved, OUR GOAL IN CARDANO, WE STRIVE FOR PERFECT ALIGNMENT OF INCENTIVES. We want to incentivize stakeholders to be online when they have to participate in the protocol, for example to create a block. People who lack the interest, technical knowledge or time to be online when needed can still participate by delegating their stake to a stake pool. DELEGATION CONFIGURATION OF STAKE POOLS For maximal efficiency and security, a solid majority of stake (about 80%) should be delegated to a number of stake pools (about 100 seems to be a reasonable number). The stake pools should be online when needed, and they should provide relay nodes, which are additional network infrastructure. The remaining proportion of stake (about 20%) should belong to “small” stakeholders, who can decide to either participate in the protocol on their own or to simply do nothing. DELEGATING STAKE IN CARDANO Cardano is a proof of stake system, so holding stake, i.e. owning Ada, means more than holding Bitcoin means for the Bitcoin protocol. Cardano is a fully-fledged cryptocurrency, so of course Ada can be used to buy goods or services. In addition to that, holding Ada also comes with the right and obligation to participate in the protocol and to create blocks. These two aspects of holding Ada can be separated by means of delegation: a stakeholder can delegate her right to protocol participation while retaining the monetary value. CONTROL OVER FUNDS The act of delegation does not relinquish spending power. Only the right to participate in the protocol is delegated. Funds can be spent normally at any time. ADDRESSES There are three distinct types of addresses, each of which is associated with two cryptographic key pairs, one for payment, one for staking. All three types behave identically as far as payment is concerned. Base address: The staking key is directly linked to the address. Pointer address: The address contains a “pointer” to a delegation certificate on the blockchain which defines the staking key. Enterprise address: Staking is not possible. This address type is meant for exchanges, who are not supposed to use funds entrusted to them for protocol participation. DELEGATION CERTIFICATES A delegation certificate delegates staking rights from one staking key to another. It can be published on the blockchain as part of the metadata of a transaction, in which case a pointer addresses can refer to it. Such a published certificate is called heavyweight. In case of conflicting certificates, later in the blockchain wins. The fees for creating a heavyweight delegation certificate are the transaction fees for the containing transaction. A lightweight certificate is not published on the blockchain, but instead included in block headers to prove staking rights for the address that was elected slot leader. It also contains a “serial number” to break ties. STAKE POOL REGISTRATION Somebody wanting to create a stake pool creates a registration certificate and embeds it in a transaction that pays the pool registration fees to a special address. The certificate contains the staking key of the pool leader. People wishing to delegate to the pool must create (heavyweight) delegation certificates delegating their stake to that key. SCENARIOS Using combinations of base and pointer addresses and “chains” of delegation certificates, a large number of scenarios can be covered, including: Regular user wallets Offline user wallets with cold staking Wallets with enhanced privacy Staking pool wallets Enterprise (exchange) wallets FEES TRANSACTION FEES

1099-MISC & 1099-K Explained + Help with Double Reporting, PayPal, and Coinbase!
 
19:03
What is the difference between a "1099-Miscellaneous" and a "1099-K" form for taxes in the United States of America as overseen by the Internal Revenue Service or IRS? Specifically for this, what happens when our income gets double reported both on a "1099-Misc" and a "1099-K?" How do we handle that? Now, I'm no CPA. I've had my own business online for seven years. I do my own taxes and I research for myself. What I'm presenting here is based on my research from several different conflicting points of view from Certified Public Accountants based on what I see makes the most sense. This may or may not be the most appropriate for you, but I hope it's helpful because I've just spent a lot of time researching and learning these things myself. I hope I can just present that for you and make it a little easier. 1099-MISC & 1099-K Explained + Help with Double Reporting, PayPal, and Coinbase! First, what is the difference between a "1099-Miscellaneous" and a "1099-K"? A "1099-Miscellaneous," the form you see below, is intended for payments that are made essentially like cash or direct deposits into a bank account, not using a third party, and this is for independent contractors in the USA. 1099-MISC It is used if I pay you for something for my business directly with cash, a check, an ACH transfer straight to the bank, a wire transfer or using PayPal specifically sending money to friends and family, and let's say I paid you for a service or I paid you for advertising, and you are reporting directly to the IRS as an individual and not a company. There may be differences for companies there, but if I'm paying just one individual to another and I did not use a third-party payment method or I sent a cash equivalent on PayPal or another method, then it is appropriate for me if I've sent at least $600 in one tax year to use a "1099-Miscellaneous" form to report that income. It depends on what it's for, but it could be box 2, box 3 or box 7. For example, Amazon reports it to me in royalties and most others report it in 7, non-employee compensation. This is not appropriate for someone who's actually hired as an employee. This is for independent contractors. Now, this form is for, again, not using a third-party network. Now, if we've used a third-party network, it is their responsibility to send us a "1099-K" form when we've received over $20,000 in payments and over 200 transactions. The purpose of this "1099-K" form is especially for online sellers like me using third-party networks, so the IRS can easily track our income. 1099-K This means PayPal sends me a "1099-K" for the total of my transactions made through most, but not all payment methods. I also received one of these from Stripe. I also got one from Coinbase, which provides additional complication. If you're driving for Uber or working through some other services where you accept transactions directly on a credit card and you have over $20,000 in payments and over 200 transactions, you're very likely to get a "1099-K" form. This form provides the gross number, that means the total. It doesn't include things like fees. It doesn't include things like refunds. When we put these in, we need to go in and enter all that stuff as expenses in Schedule C, which is what I'm in the process of doing now. 1099-Miscellaneous & 1099-K Continue reading at https://busy.org/dlive/@jerrybanfield/f379acd0-2920-11e8-a5a6-dd5b02004a6a Love, Jerry Banfield

Crypto currency introduction - conversion from coin to US dollar
 
16:45
This video will explain the connection between crypto currencies and the US dollar. It will demonstrate how to convert crypto currencies (bitcoin, doge coin, LTC) to US dollars. Two ways of acquiring crypto currency are to buy it or mine it. To buy bitcoin: 1. Create a Coinbase account: https://coinbase.com/?r=5330409e9d87bd350200011b&utm_campaign=user-referral&src=referral-link To mine coins: 1. Create a Coinbase account: https://coinbase.com/?r=5330409e9d87bd350200011b&utm_campaign=user-referral&src=referral-link 2. Create a mining pool account https://scryptguild.com 3. Install mining program http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpuminer/files/?source=navbar Make sure the mining program connects to your mining pool account, make sure the mining pool account connects to the Coinbase account. Finally, connect your checking account to the Coinbase account. Investor.gov https://twitter.com/smProf/status/464789256092016640 Contents of the mine.sh program: ################################## # Coin mining program runs a cryptographic hashing function For each new hash, the mining software will use a different number as the random element of the block header, this number is called the nonce. # # # 1. Collects transactions from the network # 2. Validates them, and doesn't allow conflicting ones # 3. Puts them into large bundles called blocks # 4. Computes cryptographic hashes over and over until if finds one "good enough to count" # 5. Then submits the block to the network, adding it to the block chain and earning a reward in return. ./minerd -a scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.scryptguild.com:3333 -u smachaje -p 4559 by Szymon Machajewski

It only takes a few minutes. https://poloniex.com/coinRequest WebSite: http://www.bitsend.info BitSend Forum: http://forum.bitsend.info Bitcointalk: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1370307 ◢◤ Your Digital Network - our premise We want digital currency useful, attractive and easy to use. A currency adapted to our social needs as consumers needs to be simple, mobile, fast and secure. ______________________________________________________ What is BitSend? What is the different? BitSend is a long term project. It is private digital currency for every generation. The POW and POS period goes 100 Years. The big target is a fair distribution. BitSend doesn't have a blockhalving or ponz scheme. Also in 10 year or 20 year can you can mine BSD like today. You can mine BSD without mining equipment. You need only 5000 BSD and a server with static IP address. ______________________________________________________ Why a 6 min Chain? BitSend does not generate thousands of empty blocks daily. This doesn't make a coin better or secure. Only 240 blocks will generate per day.Your advantage is a fast client synchronization and less harddisk space. ______________________________________________________ Why 4,35 Mio Coins in year? Bitsend has a slow Distribution. We generate per Year ~4.35 Mio BSD.In 4 years also 17,4 Mio BSD. Example: Litecoin generate today (after first blockhalving) in 4 years 21 Mio LTC. The advantage is the fair Distribution for the next Generations.In 32 years has Bitsend ~139 MIO BSD. Masternode Network Masternodes are full nodes, just like in the Bitcoin network, except they must provide a level of service to the network and have a bond of collateral to participate. Collateral is never forfeit and is safe while the Masternode is operating. This allows investors to provide a service to the network, earn interest on their investment and reduce the volatility of thecurrency. Due to the fact that the Masternode rewards program is a fixed percentage and the Masternode network nodes are fluctuating, expected Masternode rewards will vary according to the current total count of active Masternodes. Darksend DarkSend is the name of the decentralized mixing implementation that obfuscates and provides a greater degree of privacy/anonymity to the transactions of the BitSend network. Obfuscation is achieved by using network nodes in order to break up and reroute the flow of money in a way that is hard to track down. Further obfuscation takes place by using similarly sized pools of money which makes it difficult to pin-down identical amounts to a certain transaction especially when multiple transactions are occurring simultaneously, all with the same amount of money. Multiple rounds of mixing are employed so that tracking payments becomes exceedingly difficult as the number of mixing rounds increases. This process requires more time than normal transparent transactions as time is needed to accommodate the pooling of multiple transactions. To solve this issue, the ability to pre-mix coins has been implemented so that one can use "anonymized" coins right away. InstantX InstantX is a service that allows for near-instant transactions. Through this system, inputs can be locked to only specific transactions and verified by consensus of the Masternode network. Conflicting transactions and blocks are rejected. If a consensus cannot be reached, validation of the transaction occurs through standard block confirmation. InstantX purportedly solves the double-spending problem without the longer confirmation times of other cryptocurriencies such as Bitcoin. http://www.bitsend.info/ Our Announcement thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1370307.0

MultiVAC – All Dimensional Sharding Ultimate Solution
 
04:41
It is clear the priority of transaction using blockchain technology is security. At present, the most popular global network in this field is Bitcoin. However, the scalability of Bitcoin is quite limited, just about 7 transactions per second (TPS), the scalability of Ethereum is 10 TPS. This limitation has resulted in increasing transaction fees and delayed processing of transactions. In fact, until today, there is no blockchain has achieved all three elements: decentralization, security and scalability at the same time. Understanding this problem, MultiVAC wants to be the first blockchain solution to achieve all conflicting variables through a sharding model. What is MultiVAC? How does it work? MultiVAC is a next – generation high – performance public blockchain for industrial – scale decentralized applications. Developing the first fully sharded blockchain with sharded transmission and storage, its objective is to break through the limitations to blockchain scalability. Decentralized applications running on MultiVAC can determine the number of nodes on which the wish to run their code. Furthermore, with the same node scale, MultiVAC can achieve two orders of magnitude credibility and over 10000 times TPS as bitcoin, which fully meet the needs of large – scale applications. With its flexible computation, MultiVAC can allow DApp developers to trade off between the impossible triangle of decentralization, scalability and security. It will separate transactions and smart contracts, provides an optional slide of CAP for Dapps to make their own infrastructure of performance and decentralization level. Moreover, when launching the testnet, MultiVAC has successfully achieved 30,784 TPS using 64 shards, with single shards reaching 533 TPS.

Over the past decade, an alternative digital paradigm has slowly been taking shape at the edges of the internet. This new paradigm is the blockchain. After incubating through millions of Bitcoin transactions and a host of developer projects, it is now on the tips of tongues of CEOs and CTOs, startup entrepreneurs, and even governance activists. Though these stakeholders are beginning to understand the disruptive potential of blockchain technology and are experimenting with its most promising applications, few have asked a more fundamental question: What will a world driven by blockchains look like a decade from now?

Cryptocurrency prices nosedive following minister's shutdown remarks
 
02:38
가상화폐 폐쇄 추진 방침에 한 때 가치 폭락 Conflicting stances on ways to curb Korea's overheating virtual currency market. The Justice Minister on Thursday raised the possibility of shutting down all cryptocurrency exchanges in the country. Sending investors into a panic,... the prices of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies went into a tailspin... only stabilizing when the presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae confirmed that no final decision has been made. Our Park Jong-hong tells us more. The resounding message was that virtual currency trading was starting to look like gambling and speculation. In a New Year's press meeting on Thursday, Justice Minister Park Sang-ki said his ministry is preparing legislation that would basically ban any transactions based on a virtual currency through the trading floor. This, in effect, means local cryptocurrency exchanges would be shut down. (KOREAN) "We are even aiming to shut down the exchanges. At this juncture, the trading of cryptocurrency resembles speculation and gambling." His remarks are in line with the government's stern stance in tackling the irrational cryptocurrency market in Korea often dubbed the Kimchi Premium, a reference to prices that are much higher than the international norm. Minister Park dismissed views that such tough measures amount to government market intervention, pointing to the United States and Japan which have been limiting transactions in their own ways. He said it would be devastating if the bubble burst and warned of the social repercussions that will result from tremendous financial losses. The announcement caused the local price of Bitcoin to plunge by around 20 percent. At around three PM on Thursday, Bitcoin traded at a little over 17 million won, or roughly 16 thousand dollars, later climbing back to the 20 million won level. The minister's surprise announcement sparked an online petition objecting the proposed plan. More than 55-thousand Koreans rushed to join a petition demanding the presidential office halt the crackdown, crashing the Cheongwadae website temporarily. The presidential office then moved to ease jitters, saying no final decision has been made. Yoon Young-chan, chief press secretary to President Moon Jae-in, said in a statement, that no decision has been reached... and it will only be finalized through discussions and a coordination process with each government ministry.

Ethereum Classic: Hackers hijack blockchain in rare '51% attack'
 
03:17
Ethereum Classic: Hackers hijack blockchain in rare '51% attack' A previously hypothetical "51% attack" on blockchain may have been successful, raising huge questions about its security. Unknown hackers may have successfully hijacked the Ethereum Classic blockchain through a so-called "51% attack". Cryptocurrency exchanges including Coinbase have frozen trading of the token amid fears that the previously hypothetical attack has been executed. According to Coinbase, the reorganisation of the blockchain has led to the attacker taking control of tokens worth almost £400,000. Dr Patrick McCorry, assistant professor of computer science at King's College London, told Sky News it was important to distinguish Ethereum - the second-largest cryptocurrency behind Bitcoin - and Ethereum Classic, which is in the top 20 and split from Ethereum in 2015. "The underlying technology of a cryptocurrency, the blockchain, is responsible for recording all transactions on the network," Dr McCorry explained. "It gets this name because it is a chain of blocks, and every block is simply a list of authorised transactions. "In Ethereum Classic, a transaction is only considered 'final' and 'confirmed' if it is in the blockchain with the most blocks." The blockchain is powered by individuals "mining" transactions - using computer power to transmit information to other users - for which they are rewarded with newly minted units of the currency. Due to these newly minted units of the currency, cryptocurrency mining can potentially be a very profitable business - although the volatility of the currencies and the difficulty of successfully adding a block makes it a risky investment. The blockchain is intended to be a distributed, transparent, and immutable ledger which uses cryptography to mathematically verify transactions and ensure everyone's trust in the currency. However, it has long been theorised that an attacker who controlled more than 51% of the mining on the network could purposefully choose to double-spend certain coins. In a 51% attack, the attackers would create a fork in the network by transmitting conflicting information to different users - allowing them to send the same coin to multiple parties. Dr McCorry said: "The issue in a 51% attack is that a single person has more than half the network's computational power (i.e. they have a much bigger warehouse of computers) and they can create blocks faster than everyone else. "What happened in Ethereum Classic is that a single person managed to repeat the entire network's effort for 100 blocks, create a longer blockchain and reverse a transaction that paid out around $500,000," Dr McCorry explained. One mining group controlled up to 60% of the Ethereum Classic network during the course of the supposed attack, although investigations are ongoing as to the results of it.

Bitcoin SV Price Attempts to Retake the $100 Level | BTC Cryptocurrency News
 
03:30
Bitcoin SV Price Attempts to Retake the $100 Level The past month has been pretty interesting for all cryptocurrencies, even though there is a lot of negative pressure on the market as well. It is during times like these when Bitcoin SV tends to thrive, as its value usually goes up when Bitcoin faces some pressure. Today is no different so far, as the BSV price is underway to hit $100 again. Bitcoin SV Price Shows Bullish Signs. Although there are still plenty of conflicting opinions on whether or not Bitcoin SV should even exist, it is evident the currency will not necessarily go away anytime soon either. This forked version of Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin certainly trends to rise in value when most other markets face a lot of bearish pressure. Considering how most markets may potentially see more bearish pressure in the coming days and weeks, there is a good chance the BSV price will rise again. Over the past 24 hours, there has been a notable Bitcoin SV price increase in both USD and BTC value. More specifically, there is a 3% gain in USD value and a 1.2% gain over Bitcoin. It is this latter aspect which is important to traders and speculators, as they expect BSV to rise strongly against Bitcoin. So far, no uptrend has been sustained in this department, and it seems that may not necessarily change anytime soon either. On social media, the hate toward Bitcoin SV has become a lot more tangible in the past two weeks. The tweet by Jade Star attempts to change that aspect by pointing out the positive aspects BSV brings to the table. It is evident the large block size and low transaction costs are two of its main selling points. However, the lack of merchant adoption is still worrisome first and foremost at this time. On the other side of the medallion, there are tweets like the one by Warren More which show how fed up some people have gotten with BSV and BCH lately. This particular user would like to see both currencies simply wink out of existence to have the markets resume their normal uptrend. It is pertinent to look past Bitcoin, Ethereum, and XRP, though, as there are plenty of other projects worth keeping an eye on. Another interesting opinion on Bitcoin SV comes in the form of a Tweet by Bitcoin 0.1.0. This user feels as if BSV is the most misunderstood or hated cryptocurrency on the market right now. That doesn’t necessarily mean all of the dismay is unwarranted, although it is still too early to draw any real conclusions as to whether or not this project should disappear or remain in place. With the current minor gains in place, it seems the Bitcoin SV price is in a good place right now. Sustaining these gains for more than an hour or two, will be a different matter altogether. Unlike most other markets, BSV is very volatile these days, primarily because it heavily relies on the BSV/BTC ratio. As such, the coming weeks and months will be getting very interesting, regardless of how one feels toward this particular altcoin. #BTCCryptocurrencyNews #BitcoinNews #CryptocurrencyNews ► THANKS FOR WATCHING & don't forget LIKE, SHARE, COMMENT and SUBSCRIBE our Channel. ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/RiUxhK ► Like My Page on Facebook:

Cryptocurrency prices nosedive following minister's shutdown remarks
 
02:44
가상화폐 폐쇄 추진 방침에 한 때 가치 폭락 Conflicting stances on ways to curb Korea's overheating virtual currency market. The Justice Minister on Thursday raised the possibility of shutting down all cryptocurrency exchanges in the country. Sending investors into a panic,... the prices of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies went into a tailspin... only stabilizing a touch when the presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae confirmed that no final decision has been made. Our Park Jong-hong tells us more. The resounding message was that virtual currency trading was starting to look like gambling and speculation. In a New Year's press meeting on Thursday, Justice Minister Park Sang-ki said his ministry is preparing legislation that would basically ban any transactions based on a virtual currency through the trading floor. This, in effect, means local cryptocurrency exchanges would be shut down. (KOREAN) "We are even aiming to shut down the exchanges. At this juncture, the trading of cryptocurrency resembles speculation and gambling." His remarks are in line with the government's stern stance in tackling the irrational cryptocurrency market in Korea often dubbed the Kimchi Premium, a reference to prices that are much higher than the international norm. Minister Park dismissed views that such tough measures amount to government market intervention, pointing to the United States and Japan which have been limiting transactions in their own ways. He said it would be devastating if the bubble burst and warned of the social repercussions that will result from tremendous financial losses. The announcement caused the local price of Bitcoin to plunge by around 20 percent. At around three PM on Thursday, Bitcoin traded at a little over 17 million won, or roughly 16 thousand dollars, later climbing back to the 20 million won level. The minister's surprise announcement sparked an online petition objecting the proposed plan. More than 55-thousand Koreans rushed to join a petition demanding the presidential office halt the crackdown, crashing the Cheongwadae website temporarily. The presidential office then moved to ease jitters, saying no final decision has been made. Yoon Young-chan, chief press secretary to President Moon Jae-in, said in a statement, that no decision has been reached... and it will only be finalized through discussions and a coordination process with each government ministry.

Unilever Will Use Blockchain To Cleanse The Digital Supply Chain: IBM iX's Babs Rangaiah
 
05:43
PALM SPRINGS, Calif – Behind Unilever’s public demand for greater trust on digital platforms is an ambitious plan by the global marketer to embrace blockchain technology. Its first step is to build a private blockchain to begin cleaning up the digital media supply chain, with its preponderance of middlemen and conflicting numbers. “Blockchain was built exactly for that kind of friction in a supply chain,” says Babs Rangaiah, Executive Partner, Global Marketing, at marketing services provider IBM iX, which is assisting Unilever in the blockchain project. Unilever’s effort will come in several phases, the first "in the next few months" being reconciliation of digital data—from measurement to viewability and everything possible in between. “One of the things that happens when you have so many middlemen is discrepancies become rampant,” Rangaiah says in this interview with Beet.TV at the annual Interactive Advertising Bureau’s Leadership Meeting, following a presentation by Unilever Chief Marketing Officer Keith Weed. “And so you typically can’t reconcile that until the end of a flight, and by then it’s a mess. What blockchain does is allow you a single, unified view of how that media buy occurred, and there’s one number.” Ultimately, Unilever would like to “put the payment system directly into the blockchain for a seamless buy” before moving on to using the technology in the real-time-bidding of digital ad inventory. Another sought-after benefit is the high-quality, first-party, encrypted consumer data that blockchain will enable. The goal would be that “each member of a blockchain has the appropriate key for the data they can see, but the real advantage of the system is that you’ll get laser targeting like we are not able to do today.” Even farther down the road, Unilever could use blockchain for various iterations of television media, including over-the-top, “bringing that all together and really putting a whole media buy through blockchain.” In referencing Weed’s remarks to the IAB attendees, in which the CMO threatened to pull ad dollars from tech platforms that create societal division or don’t protect children, Rangaiah cites the term “In brands we trust.” He believes what will “improve and enable advertising to move forward is to get that trust back in the supply chain and that’s what blockchain does. This is a great solution.” This video is part of a series covering the IAB Annual Leadership Meeting. The series is sponsored by AppNexus. Please visit this page for more coverage.
