  1. MyCrypto is an Ethereum and ERC20 token wallet and they announced recently that they were able to schedule Ethereum (ETH) transactions. Meaning you're not limited to only send or receive transactions at the moment you create them but you'll can program them for a further usage like for example a monthly subscription with a recursive paiement, or an future ICO investment and co. To do that you'll have to use the ChronoLogicDapp but it will be possible to use a hardware wallet or an app like Metamask to use it and schedule your transactions in advance. Source : https://www.tecnologia.press/en/2018/09/20/ethereum-transactions-can-now-be-scheduled/ It's still early in the process so they are waiting for feedbacks from users to add new functionnalities & co but it's a great new feature to the Ethereum network !
  2. Currently (and for the last few month) we saw an increase in online casinos based on Ethereum. Why is that ? What's the advantages of ETH over BTC ? This article explain why some of the casinos made that choice (including speed of transactions), how the smart contracts for betting technically work, what's the main advantage of it, etc. Source : https://theblockchainland.com/2018/09/20/ethereum-betting-uses-smart-contracts-to-attract-anonymous-users/ Nothing revolutionnary if you already know how gambling in cryptos is working but still few nice slice of informations here and there, and it's focus on the perfect area for Primedice's players like us : how to mix gambling and cryptos

    First gambling site

    Primedice was my very first one if you don't consider freebit.co.in as a pure gambling site (i never used the rolling game there anyway). And it's almost still the only one i'm on with Stake

    Bittrex new updates

    Yes I know that Bittrex is loosing his mojo wince months in profit of new more fancy (and better to be honest) exchanges like Binance or Kucoin, but when they bring few new updates it's still good for the community. Especially since some of us probably registered there last year or before andhave still some funds in balance. So what's new in the last few days ? First the charts are now updated every 30 seconds, they added the ability to save and restore different chart views (saved in your browser tho, so it will not sync with all your devices), they enabled withdrawal whitelisting to allow users to whitelist USD bank accounts, improved how users are notified of wallet status and some interface GUI optimisation were made. All the updates can be seen here : https://support.bittrex.com/hc/en-us/sections/200567324-Changelist Like I said no big moves here but few improvements on really boring stuff who made thei website more difficult and boring to use. Still a long way to give their mojo back tho ...
  5. The Texas State Securities Board has taken emergency action against three crypto investment schemes it alleges are attempting to defraud local investors. Those 3 alleged frauds are : Coins Miner Investment Ltd, a Russia-based crypto promoter who asked some funds (via an email campaign) in Texas stating he was a representative of Coinbase. DGBK Ltd., or DigitalBank,who is suppose to develop a "hack-proof" crypto wallet device. They were suppose to launch an ICO next week assuring investors they will make a 1900% ROI. Ez pz. They also use Barack Obama's image in their campaign. No pain no gain. Ultimate Assets, is soliciting Texas residents for crypto and forex trading services, making promises of a 10x ROI within 3 weeks ! If you are a pidgeon, give them 1k$ and you'll have 10.000$ in 3 weeks. They just found the solution to deal with poverty all around the world 😛 All the story is here : https://www.coindesk.com/texas-securities-watchdog-takes-action-against-3-alleged-crypto-frauds/
  6. Since the rise of some coins last year proved the point : there is problems for some of them whe it come to scale the use of the blockchain. BTC and ETH suffered some atrocious delay in transactions which made them basically non usable by users. They need to find a solution before all. This article is focus on 4 points: the scaling problems, the solutions, how each crypto is handling the problem and the pros & cons. You will also learn what are the options actually used by cryptocurrencies facing those problems and what that implied for our usage of those coins.

  7. The french government recently approved a new framework to regulate the Initial Coins Offering (ICOs) and the goal is to make the country "ICO friendly" to attract new projects from all around the world. “France has every interest in becoming the first major financial center to propose an ad hoc legislative framework for companies making an initial coin offering,” Practically that mean that foreign companies can know ask for a special visa by submitting their whitepaper for review by French authorities. The very project who's trying to compell to the demands is Blockchain.io, a french crypto exchange, and they should launch their ICO as soon as next week (27th september). Source: https://thebitcoinnews.com/newly-approved-ico-framework-may-turn-france-into-europes-leading-ico-hub/ Let's wait to see how it will turn but it seem it's only the first step taken by the government to make the country crypto ready as fast as possible
  8. At least that's what said the World Economic Forum in a recent report. Even if they noticed the inefficiencies in proof-of-work blockchains they also saw some positive potential impact on the environment. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC, who conducted the study) there is an opening "for fresh ideas to harness this nascent technology to help deliver big gains for our environment... Blockchain could "create a sustainability revolution." " They focused their attention on 6 key areas like climate change, healthy oceans, water security, clean air, etc. But they realize that some of the actuals Proof-of-Work blockchains can hurt that progress if they don't turn to a Proof-of-Stake or Chia protocol. They will continue to explore and develop that first study in the near future. The full study can be read here :https://www.pwc.com/gx/en/sustainability/assets/blockchain-for-a-better-planet.pdf

    Copied Topics, Spam Responses, ETC. ❌👊

    Most of the big and/or serious forums on Internet have rules. That's something classic and it's needed in all cases when the forum start to grow. If they don't do it it's a total mess. When you register to it you agree to follow those rules. If you don't do it ... you deserve the sanction. On Primedice we have the warning points system who just do that : warn people that they are breaking the rules. If they still continue to do it they deserve whats come next. Regarding the rule to search if a topic about the same subject already exist it's just a way to not launch the same issue again and again and again, which will be boring for every usual user.
  11. Soluna is a new-york based company who plan to launch a 36 megawatt Bitcoin mining farm in Dakhla (Morocco) next year. And they will use the laws in the country to sell 20% of their energy output back to the government. They will use cheap electricity generating methods (wind for example) to cross their goal line and they hope the laws will evolove to allow them to sell back even more than 20% of their generated energy. Source : https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2018/09/construction-to-begin-on-36-megawatt-moroccan-wind-farm-for-bitcoin-mining/ The information is a little weird since Morocco formally outlaw cryptocurrency payments, but still it's a good new for the employment in the country and maybe it will help to change the laws around cryptos there
  12. Yesterday I shared with you what the next hard fork for Ethereum will change for miners (https://forum.primedice.com/topic/33243-ethereums-network-upgrade-to-reduce-mining-rewards-by-33/) so today it's good to see what will change for most of the users. Let be clear, the average user will not see any change with the Constantinople hard fork but on the tech side a lot will change. No least than 5 majors ethereum improvement proposals (EIPs) will be launch : a more efficient method of information processing a means of optimizing large-scale code execution a more equitable pricing method for changes made to data storage facilitate a certain type of scaling solution based upon state channels and "off-chain" transactions. reducing block mining reward issuance from 3 ETH down to 2 ETH and delaying the difficulty bomb for a period of 12 months. You'll can read about all those proposals in more details here : https://www.coindesk.com/constantinople-ahead-what-you-need-to-know-about-ethereums-big-upgrade/
  13. Centralized mapping services like GPS (owned by the U.S. government and operated by the Air Force) are vulnerable and unreliable according to the FOAM co-founder. That's the reason why he wanted to create an application using smart contract technology via the Ethereum blockchain. He created FOAM : https://foam.space/. FOAM's solution is to spread the work of cartography among a diffuse network of individual users, who register locations on the FOAM map using a cryptographic technique called proof of location. FOAM is targeting several use cases, from games to supply chain management. Source : https://www.coindesk.com/foam-is-live-decentralized-world-map-launches-on-ethereum/ The users will be rewarded in FOAM tokens to motivete them to use the dApp and people will trade those tokens to reward, challenge and vote the accuracy of the newly registered locations. What ya think about it ? Is a Google Maps on blockchain is of some sort of interest for you ?
  14. Linzhi is a new company launched by Chen Min (former chief chip maker at Bitcoin mining chip developer Canaan Creative) and their main purpose will be to build and sell various cryptocurrency mining devices. Their first product is an ASIC miner designed specifically for Ethereum and Ethereum Classic (maybe not the best timing according to the previous news I shared here : They plan to be an alternative to the mining giant Bitmain and their Antminer E3s. Linzhi’s product could produce as much as $20 in ether per day — about $17 more than what miners would make using a Bitmain miner. At this rate, Chen believes the money people would pay for a unit could be earned back in as little as four months. That's a bold statement ... and a big risk to take since the the product will only be release in April 2019 ... and lots of things can change before that. Source : https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/new-mining-manufacturer-linzhi-announces-ethereum-asic-miner/ So let's wait and see but I know i'll not be one of those who will gamble on an expensive hardware maybe for ... nothing
  15. Ethereum's blockchain will have a new hard fork in the coming months (named Constantinople) and the goals are (among other things) to improve the network efficiency, the fee structure and to prepare the blockchain to scale effectively in the future. In fact they plan to be able to manage 1 million transactions per second. That seem great for the nerwork and for Ethereum who suffered a big drop and some bad press recently ... but not for the miners. Because the reward for mining ETH will be less interesting. "The hard fork will reduce the payout to miners from 3 ETH to 2 ETH for every block mined on the Ethereum blockchain." Source : https://www.cryptoglobe.com/latest/2018/09/constantinople-ethereum-s-network-upgrade-to-reduce-mining-rewards-by-33/ So if you mine coins or want to start to do it ... better to forget ETH probably
