Dash (DASH) “Not At Risk Of Shutdown” In Crypto Collapse In 2018’s crypto bear market, Dash Core Group (DCG), the consortium behind the DASH altcoin, has seemingly gone silent on a public stage, with there being little-to-zero propagation of news regarding the once much-hyped project. And as such, some skeptics have deemed the project “dead.” Yet, in a recent Medium post, Ryan Taylor, CEO of DCG, exclaimed that his startup is “sustainable” and will survive the crash in Bitcoin (BTC) prices. Dash Core Group continues building in this environme

As is usually the case in the cryptocurrency world, making money is most people’s main objective. Given how bearish 2018 has turned out to be in this regard, it seems unlikely there will be many big opportunities to do so. Arbitrage, on the other hand, lets speculators pocket small profits in quick succession. It seems to be the safer way of making money under any market circumstance. Monero (Kraken / HitBTC / Poloniex) Every single week, there is at least one arbitrage opportunity involving Monero.
Bitcoin maximalism is a concept that has existed ever since the world’s first cryptocurrency was no longer alone. It essentially consists of believing that only Bitcoin will succeed, and other similar projects will fail, as well as a dedication to protecting this outcome.

These are Wasabi Wallet 1.0 and CoinShuffle respectively, and both debut new privacy features that closely mirror DASH’s anonymity service offerings. While both new features may bring near-perfect anonymity to BTC and BCH, some question the way in which anonymity was achieved, still touting DASH anonymity as the superior option. Why is Anonymity Important in Cryptocurrency? Obviously, some people want cryptocurrency to be anonymous so that they can use it a

We’re excited to announce the release of DIP 8, which details a mechanism for mitigating 51% mining attacks on the Dash blockchain. This protection mechanism, called ChainLocks, builds upon the Long Living Masternode Quorum (LLMQ) system established by DIPs 6 and 7. You can read the details about DIP 8 on GitHub or a less-technical overview of DIP 8 titled Mitigating 51% attacks with LLMQ-based ChainLocks on the Dash blog. Read Discussion at:
Mitigating 51% attacks with LLMQ-based ChainLocks The recent controversies observed in other crypto projects have shown that threats of 51% mining attacks are real, at least in the sense that they can generate a great deal of uncertainty and fear in the market. What are 51% mining attacks? A 51% mining attack becomes possible when a single entity/miner has more hash power than the total combined hash power of all other miners. In this case, the miner is able to overrule all blocks of all other miners, simply by ignoring the blocks found by o
Venmo has disabled certain new features following unforeseen losses due to fraud. In early 2018, the popular payment app reported a significant instance of fraud, much higher than anticipated. Losses from fraud weighed in at 0.4% of total volume for the first quarter of the year, 40% higher than the projected 0.24% figure. Because of this, as Venmo told Fortune, the service has resorted to rolling back certain features: “In Q1 of 2018, Venmo had multiple new features that were introduced and received exceptional customer demand. As loss patte

New test results suggest Dash (DASH) is a near-infinitely scalable cryptocurrency network. The head of Dash Core believes it could soon rival centralized payment providers, including PayPal. A stress test two weeks ago found the Dash protocol could process 3 million transactions within a 24-hour period. At approximately 35 transactions per second, the network’s capacity was four times higher than in a previous test, conducted during the summer. It represents a new all-time high for Dash, which forked from Bitcoin (BTC) in 2014.

Bitcoin took a huge dive, taking the rest of the crypto markets down with it. While a market correction of sorts was in the back of everyone’s mind for a long time, the idea was more one of a readjustment after a period of insane growth rather than a plummet off a cliff. It doesn’t surprise me though, and while I did not anticipate this degree of a crash at exactly this moment, I did know it would come years ago. Hard work pushing the Bitcoin miracle laid the groundwork for its unprecedented rise Let’s start with a blast from the past. In sum

The cryptocurrency bear market has been putting increasing pressure on miners and even causing some to shut down completely, but new mining equipment continues to emerge. Giga Watt, a US-based mining firm, filed for bankruptcy with their liabilities estimated to range between $10-50 million USD and their assets also valued somewhere between $10-50 million USD, however, their assets are up from a previous filing of around $50,000 USD, which was called a filing mistake.

The main plaintiff claims to have lost the equivalent of $1 million USD to the hacker, of which only $300,000 USD was recovered from the defendant’s hard drive (the article did not detail how much of the loss was due to exchange price fluctuations).

San Francisco (CNN) - Bitcoin may be the most popular form of digital currency but it’s far from the only one. In fact, about 1,500 other cryptocurrencies have emerged since the creation of bitcoin in 2009. And they fall into buckets like stable coins and tokens. Coupled with the lack of clear regulations or oversight and how new the space is, it’s enough to leave any crypto newcomer completely confused. Crypto is valued by investors because it’s not regulated by any central figure.
Over the years, Australia has become a notable hub for blockchain and virtual currency activity. Recently, two Australian companies have joined forces to build a new crypto-related service, called IvyPay, which will make paying bills with cryptocurrencies a lot simpler too. It’s pretty clear that the number of real use cases for digital assets is limited to date. Bitcoin, which is the most popular cryptocurrency, is seen as an investment vehicle instead of being a currency to use to actually pay for things. But maybe solutions such as IvyPay
