Bitcoin SV successfully performed a hard fork today, amid confusion over the scheduled fork time. Bitcoin SV (BSV) successfully increased its block size limit today amid confusion regarding the scheduled fork time. According to a BitMEX Research tweet on July 24, Bitcoin SV was expected to fork at 2 p.m. UTC today, but the website of the BSV-promoting Bitcoin Association claimed that the upgrade was scheduled for 1 p.m. GMT (1 p.m. UTC). The reason why the exchange’s research arm expected the fork to happen on 2 p.m. UTC is that the code of the network upgrade itself defined the fork time to be at that time. Furthermore, BitMEX closely followed the fork implementation and publicly broadcast the status of two nodes, only one of them updated, on its website ForkMonitor. Sixteen blocks after 2 p.m. UTC, Bitcoin SV mined a block bigger than the previously set limit of 128 megabytes. The block, at 145.7 megabytes, confirmed the successful fork as the node which has not been updated fell ..
Following a successful pilot transaction on the new blockchain platform finledger, there are plans to roll out the tech to the entire industry. A group of four banks have successfully issued a promissory note — a type of legally binding loan agreement — through a new blockchain platform, a news release on May 21 announced. The financial institutions used finledger to complete the transaction. According to Helaba, one of the banks involved, the platform reduces the steps involved with issuing such a note by more than 50%. As well as eliminating the need for lenders to hold documents or for borrowers to send valuables, the banks claimed the technology helps cut the risks and costs associated with the process. DekaBank, dwpbank, DZ Bank and Helaba were involved in the pilot transaction, and there are now plans to roll out finledger to the entire industry. Peter Tenbohlen, the head of operations at DZ Bank, added: “As digitization has progressed, our customers' demand for digital ser..
MakerDAO leadership declares their DAI stable thanks to stability fee. DAI stablecoin, which is pegged to the United States dollar, is now in a relatively stable position, according to the president and COO of MakerDAO, Steven Becker, in an Q&A session on May 2. The transcript of the meeting, which focused on demand and supply imbalance, appeared on Reddit. Becker discussed the efficacy of the stability fee alongside MakerDAO’s head of community development Richard Brown and Vishesh Choudhry of the company's Foundation Risk Team. According to Becker, DAI is now stable thanks to the community’s implementation of the stability fee. “Consider the peg is stable. However it is stable at a discount,” he added. Becker reasoned that the fluctuations of the stablecoin’s rate are not necessarily the result of a supply/demand imbalance. He speculated that this phenomenon might be a reflection of the industry’s current regime. Last week’s community vote was between a 2% and 3% increase, with..
Litecoin price prediction 2019 has been mainly influenced by the recent developments on the Litecoin network and the upcoming Litecoin halving that is scheduled to take place soon. Litecoin is one of the cryptocurrencies that people forgot about during the cryptocurrency winter when the price of Litecoin fell as low as $20. Since then, however, the price of Litecoin has been increasing steadily against the USD. The silver to Bitcoin’s gold has shown that it is here to stay and that it has a strong community backing it. It has risen by more than 200% since December. Right now, it is recovering from the recent bear pressure that took the prices of all the cryptocurrencies lower against the USD. On several occasions, the $100 level has acted as resistance against upward movements. According to the Litecoin price analysis on Bitcoin Exchange Guide, there is a new resistance at $95 and crossing this resistance will pave a way for more gains against the USD. Litecoin News Today – Litecoin P..

February 25, 2019, Denmark– Hypnoxys (HYPX) is a project with the dream of decentralizing the ‘chatting industry’ and as such, has developed a multi-functional messenger app and protocol that delivers all the staples of instant messaging such as group chats, audio, and video calls etc., whilst also offering a native token that can be earned through using the application. Time for ChangeInstant messengers come in all shapes and sizes, though they typically offer simplistic over-used features that are lacking in innovation and are simply advertising revenue streams for their stakeholders. Furthermore, centralized systems have been taking advantage of user data and conversations for quite some time, and that needs to change. With HYPX, it will change. By tapping into blockchain technology, users can rest easy knowing that their conversations aren’t visible..

Blockchain technology is big news these days. With so many new startups and platforms developing products and services they claim will change the world, and millions of dollars of development funds thrown into the mix, unsurprisingly, some operations will fall victim to a cyber attack of one kind or another. A cast-iron, 100% guarantee of total protection is likely far off in the distant future, however it pays to be as prepared as possible, with the strongest defenses possible in place to ward off an attack. A recent incident involving trade.io surely demonstrates this. What is trade.io? trade.io is a customizable, blockchain-based, next-generation financial platform that claims to offer users the pinnacle in security and transparency. trade.io boasts decades of expertise in such fields as investmen..
