Fallout between Tezos Foundation and OcamlPro may lead to Tezos hard fork

French engineering group, OcamlPro, is pursuing a Tezos fork after the token's managing foundation threatened to stop funding them over governance concerns, according to a blog post by the Tezos Commons Foundation. OcamlPro's leadership is said to have partnered with a newly registered crypto fund, Starchain Capital, in order to fork Tezos and to create a new blockchain called Dune Protocol. According to a leaked email allegedly sent by Starchain Capital, it is currently creating an SPV to raise $1m for 5% of the total token supply to fund the operations. The fork is scheduled for September 2019. OCamlPro had been receiving funding from the Tezos Foundation as part of their grant program, working on Tezos-related projects such as Liquidity and its block explorer, TzScan. However, tensions began to arise after it emerged OCamlPro was not fully open-sourcing its software, which is one of the conditions for financing grantees. The Tezos Foundation made it known that the funding, which expired in Q2 of this year, would be halted unless this criteria was met. The Tezos protocol has been lauded as a solution to solve proposal disputes through its on-chain governance mechanism. However its software is open source, meaning anyone can fork from it.

The Tezos Foundation brings in Roman Schnider, the co-creator of PricewaterhouseCooper

The Tezos Foundation recently announced that the co-creator of PricewaterhouseCooper (PwC) Switzerland’s Blockchain initiative will be joining the team to strengthen its operations in the country. A stronger foundation Roman Schnider is an investment banking expert with almost 15 years of experience in PricewaterhouseCooper, which is one of the Big Four accounting firms that provide professional consulting and auditing services. Over the past year, the analyst had been working as an external auditor of the Tezos Foundation’s finance and business operations allowing him to have a broader understanding of Tezos. Ryan Jesperson, the president of the Tezos Foundation, stated: “As the foundation continues to provide resources to a growing Tezos ecosystem, the CFO and operations lead will be critical to our success. Roman’s experience makes him the ideal finance and operations specialist for our team. He is already familiar with the opportunities and challenges blockchain projects face and has a deep understanding of the Tezos Foundation from his time at PwC.” Schnider will be replacing Eelco Fiole as CFO, to which the financial specialist commented: “I sincerely look forward to joining the Tezos Foundation. Together, we will work to serve and support the Tezos community in the most effective, efficient and transparent way possible.” The Foundation has been taking different steps towards strengthening its team and the Tezos (TXZ) network. Recently, it announced that it will be funding four projects to make development and blockchain analysis more accessible and user-friendly. We are thrilled to support @TezosBakingBad, @POKTnetwork, @papersDev/@AirGap_it, and @_kidtsunami to help make #Tezos more accessible via developer tools & block explorers! And announcing our next public call for ecosystem grant proposals! More info here: https://t.co/n8RsbLSoyU — Tezos Foundation (@TezosFoundation) June 10, 2019 In addition, in an attempt to demonstrate that Tezos can become an open infrastructure for social and economic coordination that governs and upgrades itself, it went through its first amendment process. The result was the activation of a new protocol, dubbed ‘Athens,’ that intends to increase the gas limit and reduce the unit of account for Tezos proof-of-stake. The amendment process successfully completed with the validation of block 458753, activating the new #Tezos protocol. Welcome to Athens. https://t.co/fyYM6Ta5wh pic.twitter.com/WzozPSzhJH — Tezos (@tezos) May 30, 2019 Although the recent announcements coming out of the Tezos Foundation have been positive for the future of the cryptocurrency, there has not been a lot of action in its price. Tezos Technical Analysis On the 3-day chart, it can be seen how TXZ moved below the 7-three-day moving average and now the 30-three-day moving average has been acting as a strong support level for the last ten days. A break below this moving average could take Tezos down to around $0.90, where the 50-three-day MA is currently sitting at. To the upside, there is strong resistance at $1.40, $1.85, and $2.50. The TD Sequential Indicator has given a buy signal with a red nine candlestick on the 1-day chart. Although the bullish setup has not been validated yet, if a green two candlestick starts trading above a green one TXZ could try to reach the setup trendline at $1.60. The Bollinger bands are beginning to squeeze on the 12-hour chart indicating that a period of high volatility could come soon. Also, a double bottom or “W” pattern could be forming, which predicts a reversal move to where Tezos started falling, which is around $1.60. This could validate the outlook given by the TD Sequential Indicator on the 1-day chart. Overall sentiment Tezos has experienced a 450 percent increase in its market valuation since the beginning of the year. Even though the recent news has not had a direct impact on its price, it seems like TXZ could be about to surge another 30 percent. This cryptocurrency has demonstrated its ability to self-amend and self-govern by going through its first voting process and as the year progresses there will likely be more updates coming from the Tezos Foundation.

Cryptocurrency influencers react to Facebook’s Libra, boon or risk for Bitcoin?

Some of the most prominent figures in the crypto community took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency. While some claim that Libra lacks the necessary features to compete with Bitcoin in the race to become the world’s currency, others argue that it could destroy most altcoins and stablecoins in the market. 2/ Libra's mission is to enable a simple global currency and financial infrastructure that empowers billions of people. — David Marcus (@davidmarcus) June 18, 2019 Facebook’s Libra Facebook’s highly anticipated cryptocurrency was finally unveiled. “[It] is a new global cryptocurrency, built on an open-source blockchain called the Libra Blockchain featuring its own proof-of-stake protocol,” said the whitepaper. The term “global cryptocurrency” comes from the fact that it nodes will be distributed across the globe and it is not pegged to a single fiat currency, according to the documents. Instead, it will be backed by different real-world assets denominated in the American dollar, British pound, Japanese yen, and the euro and other low-risk securities. The Libra Association, a Switzerland-based non-profit, will release the Libra blockchain in 2020 with a group of 28 founding members that will be in charge of validating transactions in the network. The list of network validators include Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, Uber, Lyft, eBay, and others, that have invested around $10 million to be part of the board and operate a node. Facebook also launched a new subsidiary called Calibra, which is a digital wallet designed to “provide financial services that will enable people to access and participate in the Libra network.” With Facebook’s gigantic user base and its ability to leverage WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram, Calibra will instantaneously compete with the world’s most popular existing wallets and exchanges, such as Coinbase, RobinHood, CashApp, and others. Even though this is a massive play for Facebook for entering the financial services industry, the cryptocurrency community expressed a mixture of concern, distrust, and excitement. Many took to Twitter to express their sentiment about the recent move by the social network giant. Crypto Twitter’s reaction Anthony Sassano, the co-founder of EthHub, points out that in order to sign up for Calibra, a government-issued ID is required to “comply with laws and prevent fraud.” 2/ To get started with Calibra, you'll need a government-issued ID to sign up for an account and the website states that "identity verification is important to comply with laws and prevent fraud, so you know people are who they say they are." Well, of course 😅 — Anthony Sassano (@sassal0x) June 18, 2019 According to @AkadoSand, this KYC procedure poses a major security risk for its users since the first time a transaction is made from an account, any future transactions will be linked to it as well as any other sensitive information. $LIBRA will be the best thing that will happen to chain analysis and LE. From the moment you make a single tx, your id will be linked to it and all future txs forever Like BTC but as soon as you use it you're automatically KYC'ed. Profile, location, timestamps, preferences, etc — Akado 'Bitcoin Halving in 339 days' Sang (@AkadoSang) June 16, 2019 With a user base of two billion people, Changpeng Zhao, the founder and CEO of Binance, believes that Facebook will not only have access to its users names, IDs, addresses, phone numbers, family members, friends, real-time and historic location, but with the introduction of Calibra, it will now gain access to their financial data. Facebook Libra coin don't need KYC. They have so much more data on the 2 billion people. Not just name, id, address, phone number. They know your family, friends, real-time/historic location, what you like… They know you more than yourself. And now your wallet too. Best AML! — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) June 18, 2019 Such a vast amount of information under a central authority could lead to a “disaster in slow motion,” as Tamas Blummer, a Bitcoin Core developer, indicates. The VP at CoinTerra suggests that technical features of Libra, such as “account model, generic language, [and] on-chain scaling,” makes it more of an Ethereum competitor than Bitcoin. Libra resembles Ethereum more than Bitcoin. It contains all the features that make Ethereum garbage. account model, generic language, gas, on-chain scaling with sharding, some BFT consenus. In addition it has to implement all KCY and AML. A sure disaster in slow motion. — Tamas Blummer (@TamasBlummer) June 18, 2019 Along the same lines, Pavol Rusnak, CTO at SatoshiLabs, and Ran Neu-Ner, CEO of Onchain Capital,  asserted that Facebook’s new cryptocurrency could have the potential to replace altcoins and stablecoins, but it will fail against Bitcoin. Facebook just gave Bitcoin its biggest boost ever and also rendered 90% of alts useless at the same time. — Ran NeuNer (@cryptomanran) June 18, 2019 The fact that Libra is not decentralized or censorship resistant, while its legal and tax status remains unclear— as Larry Cermak, research director at The Block Crypto pointed out—reduces its chances of becoming “the Bitcoin killer.” Just so we are clear, Libra is:– not decentralized– not censorship resistant– not guaranteed to work technologically – not guaranteed to be cleared by regulators– not clear in regards to tax implications — Larry Cermak (@lawmaster) June 18, 2019 To Peter Todd, a Bitcoin Core developer, Libra is indeed just an “unscalable centralized database,” but to Saifaden Ammous, author of The Bitcoin Standard, it is actually the only cryptocurrency other than Bitcoin that has the potential to succeed. Libra whitepaper initial analysis: The only digital currency other than bitcoin that matters, and it could succeed massively. But it does not compete with bitcoin, it reinforces bitcoin's value proposition, and will likely need to rely on bitcoin if it succeeds. Thread👇 — Saifedean Ammous (@saifedean) June 18, 2019 Libra is still one year away from being launched and its impact on the cryptocurrency market remains to be seen. As Facebook advertises its new project to its 2 billion customers, more people will be exposed to the terms “cryptocurrency” and “blockchain,” which could bring more attention into the market. The overall sentiment across the crypto community can be summed up in one tweet by Alistair Milne, CIO at Atlanta Digital Currency Fund.

Facebook unveils Libra cryptocurrency

Facebook announced its own cryptocurrency Libra that will be backed and controlled by the Libra Association which also includes founding members Uber, Lyft and Spotify. The platform will allow users to buy and send money without racking up as many fees as traditional financial platforms. Users can buy or cash out the cryptocurrency at local exchange points and spend it using interoperable third-party wallet apps, according to a Libra whitepaper. The cryptocurrency also claims to make it easier to send money between countries for less that it would cost with traditional providers. Facebook is also launching a subsidiary called Calibra to handle its crypto dealings and protect user privacy by keeping Libra payments and Facebook data separate so that it won’t be used for targeted advertising. User identities also won’t be tied to publicly visible transactions but Libra association members will earn interest on money that users cash in. That interest will be held in reserve to keep the value of the currency stable. ProPrivacy.com digital privacy expert Ray Walsh expressed doubts about the platform given Facebook’s track record for protecting consumer data. “Considering that Facebook is already the second largest advertiser in the world (second only to Google), this added integration is concerning,” Walsh said. “The idea that social data and financial data could be combined is worrying, and although Facebook claims that it will keep the distinct data sets at arm’s length – it is hard to believe that consumer habits will not be tracked in order to allow Facebook to better serve ads,” he said. Walsh contended because Facebook produces the majority of its revenue through ads and has proven untrustworthy with consumer data on several occasions in the past, it seems unlikely that the company does not plan to exploit as much consumer data as legally permitted.
