‘Google Coin’ Within 2 Years as FANGs Will Go Crypto, Say...

Companies such as Google and Amazon will launch a product in the crypto industry, say Gemini co-founders. Digital currency will form part of all four FANG companies’ offerings by 2021, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss told CNBC in a new interview on July 9. Speaking about Facebook Libra, the twins, who co-founded cryptocurrency trading platform Gemini, said it was only a matter of time before other tech giants followed suit. FANG refers to the unofficial ‘Big Four’ of the internet: Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google. “Our prediction is every FANG company will have some sort of cryptocurrency project within the next two years,” Tyler told the network. Libra as a payment protocol has not yet launched, but regulators have voiced alarm, particularly in the United States, where several sources have demanded developers halt the project. Concerns stem from Libra’s potential to bypass the banking system, something cryptocurrency proponents conversely argue makes the banking establishment ove..

The Strange Case of CCN and the Google June 2019 Core...

One of the oldest crypto sites shuts down, then comes back up immediately, citing loss of traffic. Here at Cointelegraph, we were as shocked as everyone else in and around the crypto-sphere when we learned about the abrupt closure of stalwart crypto media outlet CCN. Established at around the same time as Cointelegraph and CoinDesk, CCN spent years competing for the crypto audience. However, just a couple days later, as many others, we were relieved to hear that CCN was back — although we couldn’t help but feel sceptical regarding several aspects of the story and puzzled by so many questions swirling around it. How come a key player in our own industry could go down overnight — and then come back so conveniently after a few days? How could a three-letter-dot-com domain commanding millions of monthly visits be so hooked on Google-fed traffic that a single adjustment in the search algorithm, albeit a major one, cost it 90% of ad revenue momentarily? What was it, really? A targeted, poli..

Google Cloud Integrates Chainlink Oracles in Analytics Data Warehouse With ETH...

Google Cloud has integrated Chainlink’s oracle middleware with its BigQuery enterprise cloud data warehouse. The Google Cloud team has integrated Chainlink’s oracle middleware with its BigQuery enterprise cloud data warehouse, allowing for an on-chain and cloud-based interaction with Ethereum decentralized applications and smart contracts. The news was revealed in a development report published on June 13. As previously reported, a blockchain oracle is a system that provides the necessary external data — i.e. the variables to be evaluated — to trigger the execution of a smart contract when the original terms of the contract are met. The development post writes that Google has made public blockchain data for eight different cryptocurrencies freely and publicly available in BigQuery through its Google Cloud Public Datasets Program. While this resource allows for “the development of business processes based upon automated analysis of the indexed blockchain datasets,” the report notes ..

Crypto-Enabled Payment Firm Square Recruits Former Google Product Director Steve Lee

United States-based bitcoin-supporting payments service Square Crypto announced that it recruited former Google product director Steve Lee. United States-based bitcoin (BTC)-supporting payments service Square Crypto announced that it recruited former Google product director Steve Lee in a tweet published on June 12. Square Crypto was announced in March of this year when the organization joined Twitter, and planned to hire crypto engineers and designers to work on the bitcoin and crypto ecosystem, paying them in cryptocurrency. Just hours before announcing Lee’s recruitment, the official Twitter Square Crypto account asked — in what appeared to be a joke — the community to welcome the company’s “summer intern and inaugural hire, Gary Fuches.” Then, the author of the next tweet claimed to be Fuches and noted his commitment to blockchain technology: “Hello everybody! My name's Gary and I'm here to say, I love blockchain in a very big way!!!” A significant portion of the res..

CCN Casts Doubt on Shutdown Plans as Google Appears to Correct...

A chance increase in visibility of CCN’s old CryptoCoinsNews identity is causing confusion, say executives. Cryptocurrency news outlet CCN.com (formerly CryptoCoinsNews) has U-turned on its abrupt decision to shut down, staff confirmed in an article on June 12. CCN, which on Monday published a warning that it would cease operations immediately over an ongoing Google indexing debacle, says it is still working to understand changes in its online visibility. As Cointelegraph reported, an update to Google’s algorithm allegedly produced an instantaneous 70% drop in traffic for CCN, with executives subsequently saying they had no choice but to abandon the project. Now, support from Google has apparently changed the plans for a total shutdown, thanks to further unanticipated behavior from algorithms, which are reportedly flagging articles under CCN’s old CryptoCoinsNews identity. “While we’ve been working in the dark, trying to get to the bottom of our massive visibility drop on Google, a fr..

Top Crypto Media Site CCN Shuts Down, Cites Google Update for...

CCN, one of the top crypto media sites globally, has announced that they are shutting down. Top cryptocurrency media site CCN is shutting down today, June 10th, according to an announcement on their website. The post, written by Jonas Borchgrevink, director and founder of CCN Markets and Hawkfish AS, states that the reason behind the closure is a large drop off in traffic from Google searches following a June 3 Google Core Update. Borchgrevink writes that the crypto news site’s traffic fell over 71% on mobile overnight. The founder notes that while traffic levels have been low in the past, the addition of new members to the team means that they cannot continue to operate in these conditions on advertiser revenue. The post cites data from Sistrix.com, noting that crypto news site CoinDesk saw a 34.6% drop, while Cointelegraph reportedly saw a 21.1% drop on mobile as well. Borchgrevink states that they will be moving the CNN team to HVY.com, a news platform for journalists. In the post,..
