Last year, due to the prevalence of ICO and cryptocurrency related scams, the biggest search engine in the world, Google, blocked cryptocurrency related ads. Companies that wanted to host ICOs could no longer advertise their products on Google. After a while, the dust settled and Google started allowing a group of reputable companies within the United States and Japan display ads on its platform. However, Google appears to have blacklisted Ethereum as a keyword on its platform. Google Blacklists Ethereum The attack on the cryptocurrency community at this time isn’t directed to the entire market but to the third largest cryptocurrency per market capitalization, Ethereum.

Yesterday, the blockchain platform, Decenter announced that Google has blacklisted ads related to Ethereum from its advertisement network. The post on Reddit..

Hackers are continuing to find exposed mining rigs and wallets, which make easy targets for stealing ETH funds. A fresh wave of hacks targeting Ethereum (ETH) holdings continues, despite the altcoin’s price trailing at 18-month lows, tech magazine ZDNet reported Dec. 10. Citing research by cybercrime monitoring company Bad Packets LLC, the publication revealed that the downturn in ETH/USD has failed to stop malicious parties attempting to steal funds from miners and investors. Scanning the network, hackers are trying to identify mining rigs and wallets with an exposed port 8545, which ultimately allows them to gain control and redirect ETH funds elsewhere. “Despite the price of cryptocurrency crashing into the gutter, free money is still free, even if it's pennies a day,” Bad Packets co-founder and security researcher Troy Mursch commented. Cointelegraph originally reported on the Ether scanning phenomenon in June this year after one operation netted a reported $20 million in ETH..

UBS’ Paul Donovan repeats Bitcoin bashing from last year, claiming it will “never be a currency.” Swiss bank UBS’ Wealth Management Global Chief Economist and infamous Bitcoin skeptic Paul Donovan doubled down on his distrust of cryptocurrency Nov. 29, calling it “fundamentally flawed.” Speaking to CNBC’s Fast Money segment, Donovan, who earlier this week released an internal blog post titled “I come to bury Bitcoin, not to praise it,” repeated his criticism of the innovative financial instrument. “I think anyone with a high school education in economics has been a Bitcoin skeptic right from the start,” he told the network, adding: “These things were never going to be currencies, they’re not going to be currencies at any point in the future; they’re fatally flawed.” Donovan was speaking as Bitcoin prices circled around $4,200, having dropped as low as $3,500 around last weekend.

Crypto community was triggered once again, but perhaps it is time to face it: EOS is not really decentralized. At least it is isn’t what EOS “is after”, in the words of its co-founder Daniel Larimer. What is EOS and how it works?EOS.io is a blockchain-powered smart contracts protocol for the development, hosting, and execution of decentralized applications (dApps). It was launched in June 2018 as open-source software, while first test nets and the original whitepaper emerged earlier in 2017. The platform was developed by block.one, a startup registered in the Cayman Islands and lead by Daniel Larimer and Brendan Blumer.
