Round up of Cryptocurrency News #3 Week 20/07 - 26/07

Pssst! Hey you. Scroll down for commentary!
Important/Notable/Highlights:
Special Mentions:
You haven't had enough news? Here is some more:
Speculation:
You made it! :)
First up, SORRY! This has been a late post, I have my reasons don't question them (if you must know I'll be posting in the discord - one time only haha). Secondly, I am sure you can agree with me when I say "Wow!" What an incredible week it has been. Last week I thought it was going to take a couple more weeks for more moving price action when it had only taken a few days which has seen Bitcoin reach and pass the $10,000 region. We have also seen the total Market cap for cryptocurrencies increase from about 280B to over 300B (308B at time of writing) within just a few days. A huge injection of liquidity, about 40B, into the market and just to name a few of the best rises in the top 20 (on Coinmarketcap.com), the price of ETH BTC ADA have given good performances/positive responses (With this I will start adding screenshots at the end of each week for timestamp purposes).
This may be a combination from Binance, Mastercard, Paypal, Grayscale investments, VISA AND the DEFI sector. Let me explain... Last week we read about Binance integrating with the company Swipe (SXP) to issue there own debit card expanding the use and reach of cryptocurrency to 31 countries within Europe. Binance's Q2 scheduled token burn of $60.5 Million, this figure correlates with its exchange, margin and futures trading platforms where approximately 20% of profits get burned to increase the price of BNB token (careful as the price has been steady after the burn).
This week we find out Mastercard's expansion into the Cryptosphere as they expand and integrate with the Wirex team to issue a Mastercard-backed Bitcoin debit card, thus further extending the reach of cryptocurrency availability internationally.
"The cryptocurrency market continues to mature and Mastercard is driving it forward, creating safe and secure experiences for consumers and businesses in today’s digital economy " "...Our work with Wirex and the wider crypto ecosystem is accelerating innovation and empowering consumers with more choice in the way they pay"
Mastercard is also reaching out to other emerging cryptocurrency firms to apply to become principal members [Partners] with Mastercard as they have relaxed their digital assets program and look to expand into the Digital Assets and Blockchain environment.
Paypals expression of interest in cryptocurrency facilitiation may bear fruits as it is said Paypal has partnered up with stablecoin operator Paxos (who is already in partnership with Revolut in the US) to facilitate trading through a cryptocurrency brokerage which will enable other firms to integrate cryptocurrency trading functionalities with them. In my opinion this looks much more promising than the Libra association they pulled out from last October as regulations.
Grayscale Investments clears regulatory hurdle as they have been given the green light for its Bitcoin Cash Trust (BCHG) and Litecoin Trust (LTCN) to be quoted in over-the-counter (OTC) markets by US Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
“The Trusts are open-ended trusts sponsored by Grayscale and are intended to enable exposure to the price movement of the Trusts’ underlying assets through a traditional investment vehicle, avoiding the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping digital Bitcoin Cash or Litecoin directly.”
More green lights for Cryptocurrency in the US as regulators allow banks to provide cryptocurrency custody services (which may go further than just custody services). A little bit strange as it seems unnecessary and undermines one of the key factors and uses of cryptocurrency which is to be in complete control of your own finances... On another outlook this may be bullish as it allows US banks to provide banking services directly to lawful cryptocurrency businesses and show support for Bitcoin.
Visa shows support stating they have a roadmap for their further expansion into the Crypto sphere. Already working with Crypto platform Coinbase and Fold they have stated they recognise the role of digital assets in the future of money. To be frank, it appears to be focused on stable coins, cost effectiveness and transaction speeds. However they are expanding their support for crypto assets.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, DeFI! Our very own growing section in crypto. Just like the 2017 ICO boom we are seeing exorbitant growth and FOMO into the Decentralised Finance sector (WBTC, Stablecoins, Yield farming, DEXs etc). The amount of active addresses on Ethereum has doubled but with the FOMO on their network have sky rocketed their fees! Large use-cases of stable coins such as USDT ($6B in circulation using ERC-20 standard), DAI, TUSD, and PAX. $114M Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) on their network acts as a fluid side chain for Bitcoin and DEX trade volume has touched $1.6B this month. With all this action happening on Ethereum I saw the 24HR volume surpass BTC briefly on Worldcoinindex.com
In other news, Bitcoin has been set as a new precedent in a US federal court in a case against Larry Dean Harmon, the operator of an underground trading platform Helix. Bitcoin has now legally been ruled as a form of money.
“After examination of the relevant statutes, case law, and other sources, the Court concludes that bitcoin is money under the MTA and that Helix, as described in the indictment, was an `unlicensed money transmitting business´ under applicable federal law.”
Quick news in China/Asia as floods threaten miners and the most dominant ASIC Bitcoin mining rig manufacturer Bitmain loses 10,000 Antminers worth millions alledgedly goes missing or "illegally transfered" with ongoing leadership dispute between cofounders.
Last but not least, Cardano (ADA) upgrade Shelley is ready to launch! Hardfork is initiated as final countdown clock is switched on. At time of writing the point of no return has been reached, stress tests done and confirmation Hardfork is coming 29/07 The Shelley Mainnet upgrade is a step toward fast, capable and decentralised crypto that can serve billions of people. With the Shelley Mainnet is ADA staking rewards and pools! Here is a chance for us Gravychainers to set up a small pool of our own. Small percentage of profits going into the development of the community, and you keep the rest!
If you read all of my ramblings thanks heaps! I appreciate it! I have added an extra piece of reading called speculation. Most you can speculate on by just reading the headline some others have more depth to them.

/r/Bitcoin FAQ - Newcomers please read

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
Some great introductions for new users are My first bitcoin, Bitcoin explained and ELI5 Bitcoin. Also, the following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Also have to give mention to Lopp.net, the Princeton crypto series and James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series. Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found at the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here, here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. Potential upcoming protocol improvements here. Scaling resources here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!), and of course Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper that started it all! :)
Key properties of bitcoin

Where can I buy bitcoins?

Bitcoin.org, BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com and Howtobuybitcoin.io are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also, check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Bank Transfer Credit / Debit card Cash
Gemini Bitstamp LocalBitcoins
Bitstamp Bitit Mycelium LocalTrader
BitFinex Cex.io LibertyX
Cex.io CoinMama WallofCoins
Xapo Spectrocoin BitcoinOTC
Kraken Luno BitQuick
itBit
HitBTC
Bitit
Bisq (decentralized)
Luno
Spectrocoin
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
Android iOs Desktop
Samouari BreadWallet Electrum
Another interesting use case for physical storage/transfer is the Opendime. Opendime is a small USB stick that allows you to spend Bitcoin by physically passing it along so it's anonymous and tangible like cash.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
microbitcoin μBTC 1,000,000 per bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μL) or micrometre (μm)
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin Colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $10000 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

Those pizzas were paid by 10000 BCH too

I don't expect the same sentiment from the veterans here, but when I saw the crowd stoning Peter McCormack for more than one Bitcoin quote, I remembered the first time I saw this transaction:
Pizzas for 10000 BCH
Even though I already knew how forks work, I was captivated. Sure, I knew BCH didn't just spring into existence at the time of the fork. Yes, I knew the whole history to that day is a BCH's history too. But it never occured to me you can honestly say that the guy bought pizzas for Bitcoin Cash. The other party can argue all they want, the statement is formally true :-)
I also liked it when Bitcoin.com was showing the price of BCH as continuous line, even from before the BTC / BCH split.
Anyway, I hope that more people realize the fact that BCH is rather a twin of its spoiled brother, and not a child, not a knock-off, as most were led to believe.

If I have ever tipped you, I will never ask you to return coins

Hi folks,
I'm Eric Nakagawa
I learned tonight that an impersonator twitter account has been requesting to be sent back tips that I tipped them. So far looks like 15,000 coins have been absconded.
I will never ask for coins to be returned.
If I tip you, it is yours. Forever. I don't care if you hoard them, print them out into paper wallets that you cut up and and then eat for dinner, donate them to a charity, lose them gambling, build a massive pile of dogecoins from day trading the tip, or lose them when you reformat your windows.
I tip because it is the way of the shibe...
However, the person on Twitter running the scam literally does not have the spirit of dogecoin in them. They are what +goodshibe calls a Weasel.
I am sorry if you have had coins scammed... message me on twitter and I will re-tip you. I don't care if I have to sell my very last Bitcoin, but I will make this right.
What can the community do about this?
Thank you, Eric
Edit: To all the shibes who have tipped me. Thank you!

Happy Banano Pizza Day Australia! -- Buy Pizza now with Banano!

New reddit account so I don't dox myself....
Am a huge Banano fan, long time Raiblocks hodler
Happy Banano Pizza Day Australia!!!!!!!!
To celebrate 8 years since BTC pizza day, I am selling 2 fresh hot Pizzas for 10,000 Banano today!
You can pickup anonymously from any of the 600+ Dominoes stores anywhere in Australia!
Step 1, go into your Banano wallet.
Step 2, send payment to ban_3z5d4o6arcpoqr5srmwfek4aawfu89bwkqnyic83rg6uffnzb9t5uwb67wyr
Step 3, Send 10,000 Banano,
Step 4, then enter the postcode for your Australian Dominoes store into the send price... for example Broken Hill would be 10000.2880
Step 5, enter the type of Pizzas you want, 1 for pepperoni 2 for ham and cheese, 3 for Vegetarian.
So 2 veggie Pizzas to Broken Hill would be 10000.288033 Banano.
**If you live in a postcode with multiple stores (like the CBD of Melbourne) you need to enter a final digit to let me know which store, 0 will be the first in alphabetical order, 1 the second, 2 the third.
**** I don't intend to profit from this just having some fun, and showing that adoption can be simple and tasty!
***** I recommend you go in store when you order, so you can see your order come up on screen, it won't be instant, but you should have the pizza cooked an eaten before a Bitcoin payment would process!!!
****** I will try to refresh my wallet, but if you want to give a heads up for incoming on reddit that would help make it super fast!

Why bitcoin will never die

The biggest hurdle in Bitcoin's history isn't going to be when it recovers from this recent drop or when it first broke $1000 or even when it first reached parity with the American dollar, but when it went from nothing to something. I like to think of this moment as when Laszlo bought his pizzas. Ever since, bitcoin has grown in value and all of it's growth has been organic and from the grass roots.
Why did Jercos accept 10000 magic internet coins from Laszlo? Was it because he thought he could later trade them in for more value? or hold until moon for lambos? The ironic thing is that he could probably buy dozens of lambos today if he wanted to. At the time however, they were completely worthless with literally no real life users. People like Jercos supported bitcoin in it's infancy because it represented a completely new idea of money and one that is far superior. The problems that we are dealing with in bitcoin today are largely due to it's infancy; bitcoin and crypto is still too young and adoption is still growing. You can't expect bitcoin to take over the global financial market in under 10 years starting at 0 users.
People like Jercos and Laszlo supported bitcoin when it had no monetary value because it represented an idea of decentralization, financial freedom and separation of money and state. The early supporters and innovators of bitcoin HODLed because they understood what bitcoin represents, what it could be and that any technical inadequacies can be later improved upon. This is reason why we have segwit, lightning network, hardware wallets and numerous new inventions and add ons.
The biggest driver behind bitcoin's success is not the protocol itself but rather what it represents. Bitcoin is an idea, the real adoption is a psychological one. The real support levels of bitcoin are the innovators who are busy creating their idea of what bitcoin could be and the true believers who support bitcoin not for financial gain but rather because they are boycotting their current system. They are not going anywhere and neither is bitcoin.

[Confidential] Planning for F*-Day

Guys, we should start detailed planning for F*-day.
Below is a very rough draft of the script for the upcoming bit-coin fork, as proposed by the Field Op managers at last week's meeting. Read it carefully and bring any suggestions etc. to the next meeting [Note 0]. Special Agents Neckbeard, SwampThing, NakaTuring, and BitSavior will be receiving additional details through the usual channel (if the backlog clears in time).
All times are UTC of F*-day. You must all have received a Chinese fortune cookie at the Friday brunch with the date; please keep it secret. (Harry, the janitor says that you left yours on the table; please see him ASAP.)
[Note 0] The next Field Ops meeting may be delayed since His Scaliness the Sub-Vice Lizard showed up for a snack and we are now looking for a replacement Secretary. Please keep your cochlear implants tuned for further announcements.
[Note 1] All values and coin amounts in these minutes have been computed with a javascript implementation of the Solidity bistromathics library, with sinking-point arithmetic, in order to confuse any enemy agents who may be reading this forum.

Should we start using garlicoin for small, real world transactions with each other?

Maybe start a subreddit for selling items and services to show the exchanges that this coin is legit.
Like, I'll write you a haiku for x garlicoin, or I'll pay y if you guild me. Maybe pay me z and I'll have a pizza sent to your house. You get the point: put it to use and see what happens.
But never forget about that guy who bought pizza for 10,000 Bitcoin...

The Impact of Nebulas Force

Crypto has evolved rapidly since the mythic tales of Bitcoin pizza's past. A new era of startups are beginning to shape In this emerging block chain 3.0 market. Many 1.0 & 2.0 platforms are beginning to feel fundamental flaws in their inception, lurking quietly in the background, and slowly rearing a head. In a recent article posted by coin desk, Ethereum's new Casper will take place and march forth a new fork which will now diversify Ethereum's community once more since Ethereum Classic. Aside from barriers to entry, complexity for developers, and a soon to be even further divided community; what does this mean for Ethereum and most crypto currencies? Unbeknownst to many, coins such as Bitcoin & Ethereum have experienced many divisions in their community, some of which so heated that the likes of SatoshiLite would have to argue that BCH (Bitcoin Cash) is not the true Bitcoin, because it has the least Proof of Work completed on it.
Satoshi Lite's Tweet on Bitcoin Cash
I believe Hitters, Robin, and Aero all have foreseen the coming of this issue and have striven to build a developer first, javascript friendly, smart contract & dapp search platform which incentives exceed that of Tron, a company 16x its size, in the form of Nebulas. In short, Nebulas force is a ground breaking technology that allows for a change in consensus protocol without the need to hard fork.
" communities will define the evolving direction of the Nebulas and achieve its upgrade" ~Nebulas Whitepaper
Below you will find a list of forks of the current largest crypto-currency Bitcoin. Many of these forks are chasing superior TPS or more Privacy for solely payments.

What I believe is important to realize and what Aero has mentioned in the latest Medium post, is that transaction concurrency is not the end all to crypto, and that the future of payments is not necessarily the only future for block chain. The ramifications of block chain and the benefits it may have in many industries such as healthcare are still unfathomable. Nebulas seems to be wholeheartedly interested in creating a digital ecosystem where the limits are set by our own creativity and skill. With Nebulas Force I believe we just might have decentralized unity. Thanks for reading everyone.

Let me love the Bitcoin, please.

After reading tiny snippets about Bitcoin all the time I decided to take a closer look at it ... and I was floored.
Please don't get me wrong, I really really really want to love the concept, but it seems to be more or less unusable. There are some huge upsides to it: Built on mistrust, fixed amount of money, decentralized system, anonymity and so on. But my reality looked something like this:
Now as you might say, I should have read up on the details (blockchain!) before - but getting started seems to be a big hurdle for the non-geeks out there. Nothing like "get started in seconds!". Even I had some trouble grasping the concept, and I'm sitting in front of a computer for about two decades now.
But wait, there's more! Since my connection is still under heavy load from the client, I could read up on all the things I have missed, and I found some inherent flaws:
For me, Bitcoins could be an awesome form of worldwide, internet-based form of micropayments. The biggest market would be developing countries. But there are technical and legal barriers which push it into a corner for geeks who see conspiracies everywhere and want to crash the system ... which is exactly not what it should be. I read about Ripple, it seems to be a better alternative just because of the possibility for easy money exchanges - and it includes Bitcoin, too.
So, is there something I just don't get yet? I get the impression Bitcoin is a great idea, but just the prototype for something better.

Is it really convinient to have a crypto currency as a payment system at a fast food food (or anywhere else for that mater) ?

Sorry if this comes accross as a noob question, I'm new to the space and still learning. As far as I know, OmiseGo is in talks with Mcdonalds Thailand and they want to incorporate the OMG token as a viable payment system. But does it really make sense ? The value of the token is so volatile so wouldn't they have to change the OMG price of a BigMac everyday ?
Also another point is that everyone in the crypto space is betting on the value of the coin to grow exponentially, so would there really be any incentive to spend the money at all ? I mean we all hear the stories about people who regret it now that they bought a pizza for 10000 Bitcoins back in the day. Would OMG spenders regret buying a BigMac with some OMG if (as every OMG holder is hoping) the token's value explodes ?

List of early web-based Bitcoin wallets

Hi all,
My memory's a bit foggy, but I recall mining a few Bitcoin back in the Early Days (2009-2010ish).
At the time, there wasn't much to do with Bitcoins (recall the 10,000 BTC pizza), so after a week or so of tinkering (including moving some BTC to an early web-based Bitcoin wallet whose name escapes me just to see what transferring BTC was like) I quickly lost interest, uninstalled the Bitcoin Core software, and went on with my life.
Recently, I've been tempted to see if that online wallet service (a) still exists and (b) if my early BTC are still there.
However, I can't recall the name of the service and can only vaguely describe the web interface (extremely simple in operation, consisting of white or other light colors -- can you tell my memory sucks for this?).
Is there some list of all the various early online Bitcoin wallet services? If so, where would one find such a list? Anyone remember any early such services that might not be on the lists?
Thanks!

The first real-world Bitcoin transaction was 10,000 BTC for 2 pizzas. In today's value, 10,000 BTC is worth $194,943,763.00 USD.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 80%. (I'm a bot)
Bitcoin did away with the third party by publicly distributing the ledger, what Nakamoto called the "Block chain." Users willing to devote CPU power to running a special piece of software would be called miners and would form a network to maintain the block chain collectively.
Not only did bitcoin's public ledger seem to protect against fraud, but the predetermined release of the digital currency kept the bitcoin money supply growing at a predictable rate, immune to printing-press-happy central bankers and Weimar Republic-style hyperinflation.
Gavin Andresen, a coder in New England, bought 10,000 bitcoins for $50 and created a site called the Bitcoin Faucet, where he gave them away for the hell of it.
Laszlo Hanyecz, a Florida programmer, conducted what bitcoiners think of as the first real-world bitcoin transaction, paying 10,000 bitcoins to get two pizzas delivered from Papa John's.
On December 5, 2010, after bitcoiners started to call for Wikileaks to accept bitcoin donations, the normally terse and all-business Nakamoto weighed in with uncharacteristic vehemence.
"The project needs to grow gradually so the software can be strengthened along the way. I make this appeal to Wikileaks not to try to use bitcoin. Bitcoin is a small beta community in its infancy. You would not stand to get more than pocket change, and the heat you would bring would likely destroy us at this stage."

Happy Bitcoin pizza day!

Happy Bitcoin pizza day everyone ! Exactly seven years ago, on May 22nd 2010, a man paid 10000 BTC for a pizza First ever purchase with Bitcoin!

Can this possibly be true? If you invested $100 when Bitcoin first came out, it would currently be worth $7.3M.

I remember hearing that the first Bitcoin sake was 10000 BTC for a pizza. Assuming a price of $10, this means that 1 BTC was worth $0.001, or 1/10 of 1 cent. If you invested $100, you'd receive 100,000 BTC. At today's exchange rate that would be $7.3M.
Is this math correct? If so... damn... I wish I had heard about Bitcoin much earlier. If so, I'd probably be retired to some exotic corner of the world chilling on the beach all day.
