From a Bitcoin flip in the Wall Street Journal to democracy on the Stellar network, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
The front page of the Wall Street Journal’s Finance section features an old fashioned billionaire flipping a Bitcoin up in the air. The article tracks where investors with big money are placing their bets, including billionaires Mike Novogratz and Steven A. Cohen who are investing in Bitcoin companies.
Ethereum has partnered with Minds + Machines Group Limited (MMX) to make it easier for people to transfer Ether. The partnership will allow users to register their Ether addresses under the .luxe domain registry.
This means that Ether could ultimately be sent to wallet addresses with names like “adamsmith.luxe” instead of to long alphanumeric strings that no one can remember or pronounce.
The EOS hackathon is underway in Sydney. It’s one of five events around the world that will give away $1.5 million in rewards to ethical hackers who find bugs in the platform.
Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dash
Instacoin has added Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Dash to its network of ATMs. The company currently has more than 90 cryptocurrency ATMs throughout Canada.
The company says more altcoins including Ethereum, Zcash and Monero will be added in the near future.
Smartlands says it has launched the first voting system on the Stellar network. The system is designed to let people vote on multiple issues simultaneously, in a truly decentralized fashion.
We have some great news to share! We are excited to announce the first voting system for decentralized management released on the Stellar network. It will be available for both SLT holders and ABT investors in the @Smartalnds Wallet! https://t.co/iFCAuSCqpb$SLT $XLM @StellarOrg
