  2. Not really a surprise since almost all the new techs are use in priority or quickly in the military environment. Internet was used by the army before coming to public, exoskeletons are already in use in the army before reaching the masses, drones were used for a long time, ... now it will be the same with blockchain. The advantages of running a blockchain could work on different levels like managing inventories, lower the costs of operating, tracking and delivering supplies, detect and possibly counter cyber attacks, create new cryptographic algorithms, etc. Source : https://bitcoinist.com/china-russia-usa-blockchain-military/ The thing with the army is : if we start to learn about their interest in the technology, they probably have already something in place or close. When things go public they are years ahead of that.
  3. Yes I believe the good news in all those FUD everywhere is that the market show some strong resistance level that seem very hard to break. Meaning enough people believe in it and it will be hard to make the market totally crash. That don't say when the market will rise again (could take months or years) but I have more confidence today than 6 months ago tbh.
  4. I'll tend to say Binance have the 4 points you're looking after. Buy some BNB coins there and you'll have some advantages about the fees (who are already low at 0.15% or something like that) You cna read this article, maybe a little outdated tho : https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@davidhay/top-7-reasons-to-buy-and-hold-binance-bnb-coins
  5. If you don't know what Brave is, it's a web browser focused on privacy and using the blockchain technology. Running on a blockchain is not the only great point of Brave, another one is to reward publishers for their contributions. The reward come under the form of BAT tokens distributed anonymously by the users who want to. But how to verify the legitimacy of the publishers ? That's why they decided to use Civic's blockchain platform to verify them. Both together will protect users identities and personal information through their services. Civic's "Reusable KYC" program will ensure that these publishers can verify their identities while maintaining some sense of privacy. These publishers will also be able to use mobile devices or similar platforms to collect payments. Source : https://www.coindesk.com/brave-browser-is-using-civics-blockchain-platform-to-verify-publishers/ With 4 million monthly users on average Brave is growing little by little. I'm using it from time to time and I like it tbh, could be my browser by default in few months. Did you already tried it ?
  6. The ETF (Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund) were suppose to be launch in august by VanEck and SolidX but the SEC delayed them for a month. Now they are postponing the process again because the "need more time to consider more input to help it arrive at a decision on the matter". For those who don't know an ETF is contract you sign and a way for investors to effectively invest in bitcoin without actually holding the asset. That could have a big impact on the prices since (like for gold or silver) they could have more "paper bitcoin" that actual mined BTC, the price could change a lot depending on that. Source :https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/vanecksolidx-etfs-delayed-again-sec-seeks-comment-fund-proposal/ Some people were waiting with impatience the ETF to bet on a higher (or not) BTC price, seem they'll have to be more patient.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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 ...
  10. 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/
  11. 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.

  12. 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

  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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 ?
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. As we know (or not) Shapeshift had to change their business model recently, it was an place where you bought cryptos without revealing your identity but they had to compell with the law and are now asking a full KYC registration which kill the best part of the service. But they are not the only one on the field and there is still few options if you want to enjoy the "anonymous" way of life to buy BTC. Some are already weel known like Changelly or Coinswitch, some will have their spotlight time with the "death" of Shapeshift (like Flyp.me or Changenow). And this list only provide 4 sites but there is more than that (Metamorph Pro, Faa.st, ..) Source : https://news.bitcoin.com/four-alternatives-to-shapeshift/ Did you alreadu use of those 4 services ? If it's the case what do you think about it ?
  20. I know we have lot of pinoys and pinays on this forum so the news could interest some of you Actually the Philippines Peso (PHP) is facing a high inflation rate which (6.4%) with an exchange rate of 1 PHP = $0.019. Which lead philipinos to exchange some of their FIAT money to cryptos. In fact in august the average sum was around 500.000$ traded between both each week. That could be explain because PH government seem pretty open and positive about cryptos in general, they recently approved 2 applications for new crypto exchanges, and soon they will release draft rules to help govern cryptocurrency exchanges. The biggest bank (UnionBank) plan to get involve in mining operation, etc. Source : https://www.manilatimes.net/cryptocurrency-trading-rules-eyed/437546/ I personnaly like to see those countries taking advantages of economical difficulties or ban (from USA or else) and trying to find a new way to make things happen, like Venezuela, Iran or now Philippines
  21. Stake screenshot = Stake problem. Thanks to post on the forum there (if not done already), it will be easier for everybody to follow the story and resolve it. Thank you. I'm locking this one.
  22. Jack Dorsey (one of the founder of Twitter) is a crypto enthusiast, he already implement blockchain and crypto in another of his project, Square app. Now he want to implement it tofight what is probably the biggest cancer on Twitter : fight scams and misinformation while improving transparency. It could be a great improvement for the social media, especially because we know for few days that 15,000 scam bots using Twitter to spread fake cryptocurrency giveaways were created in the past few months. Source : https://coingape.com/jack-dorsey-blockchain-twitter-solve-transparency/ Dorsey go against lot of people because he believe Bitcoin will be the unique crypto use on the Internet for most of the actions. Vast majority of people are not following a clear statement like this one, they believe there will be a lot of cryptos for different usages. What about you ? One single coin or multiple ones ?
  23. For the moment I go mostly with Binance and Kucoin (no KYC mandatory yet, link in signature if interested). Also Bittrex because i registered long time ago but not a lot of activity there. And I'm trying Huobi and Bibox too. I believe I still have an account on Cryptopia and HitBTC but didn't connect there for months so I don't know if the KYC is an obligation there or not.
  24. Mostly not profitable if your phone is really mining, it will cost way more in electricity and will hurt the longevity of the phone for peanuts (you will mine very few coins). The only viable option is a fake mining like Electroneum (ETN) do, but like Ultra said there isn't not a lot of chances it will end well. I believe ETN will stay a very low coin almost without interest.
