Bitcoin Cash [BCH] added on Gemini as Bitcoin SV [BSV] moves to the sidelines

More than a year after the Bitcoin [BTC] hard fork that created the Bitcoin Cash [BCH] cryptocurrency, Gemini Exchange has announced that the trading of the fork is now available for its customers. Beginning on December 8th, users can deposit BCH tokens onto the exchange, with trading beginning on December 10th. Recently, the BCH network itself underwent another hard fork, with two camps, Bitcoin ABC, backed by Bitmain and Jihan Wu, and Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision, headed up by Calvin Ayre and Craig “Faketoshi” Wright. It then split into two coins, with most of the exchange platforms supporting the ABC implementation over the SV one. Gemini also seemed to go along with this, announcing: “At this time, we will only be providing support for the Bitcoin ABC network and we will be referring to it as Bitcoin Cash with ticker: BCH. We have added replay protection to all BCH withdrawals from the Gemini platform to ensure transactions are only valid on the Bitcoin ABC blockchain.” This presents a problem that is difficult for the SV camp to overcome, as BCH is only the 5th coin on the heavily regulated Gemini platform. The exchange only trades Bitcoin, Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC], Zcash [ZEC]. They also mentioned that any Bitcoin SV or any other unsupported token sent to the Gemini address is “invalid and irrecoverable”. However, on the brighter side, Gemini has stated that they are continuing to evaluate whether or not to add Bitcoin SV over the “coming weeks and months”, with both withdrawals and trading of the token coming under scrutiny. Eric Winer, the VP of Engineering for Gemini, stated: “We have worked closely with the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS) to obtain approval to offer Bitcoin Cash trading and custody services for our customers, and we are excited to add this cryptocurrency to the Gemini platform.” The post Bitcoin Cash [BCH] added on Gemini as Bitcoin SV [BSV] moves to the sidelines appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Bitfinex and Ethfinex to List 4 New Stablecoins: TUSD, USDC, PAX and GUSD

A few hours ago, and via twitter and Medium, Bitfinex announced that it was adding four additional stablecoins. The newly added stablecoins would also be listed on Ethfinex: the Ethereum token centered version of Bitfinex. The four newly listed stablecoins are as follows. USD Coin (USDC) True USD (TUSD) Paxos Standard (PAX) Gemini USD (GUSD) The new additions brings the total tally of stablecoins on the two platforms to six. The other stablecoins are Tether (USDT) and Dai (DAI). Trading Effective 4th December and Why Bitfinex and Ethfinex Added the Stablecoins The announcement by Bitfinex went on to explain that trading of the stablecoins was effective immediately on the date of the announcement: December 4th 2018. The exchange went on to explain why the team chose to add the new stablecoins. Following the Tether boom in 2017, the stablecoin market has rapidly expanded with five alternatives of note launching from March 2018. At Bitfinex and Ethfinex we are dedicated to providing a high quality, unbiased meeting place for every ecosystem and customer. We were the first to introduce alternative stablecoins onto our platform, including Dai (an Ethereum collateralised stablecoin), and now proudly introduce the following established stablecoins: USDC, True USD, Paxos, and Gemini USD. All stablecoins on Bitfinex and Ethfinex will be traded against USD Tether’s (USDT) Dominance Continue’s to Reduce The addition of 4 new stablecoins follows a similar path by other exchanges such as Binance and Huobi. With the bear market still in full effect, crypto traders and enthusiasts have developed a liking for stablecoins to hedge against times of volatility such as the recently ‘concluded’ hash wars between Roger Ver and Craig Wright. Another factor to consider, is the entry of institutional investors who might not have a liking for Tether (USDT) given the coin’s past controversies that include Bitcoin manipulation as well as the parent company not being able to account for its USD reserves. Such uncertainty has led to exchanges such as Gemini, creating their own stablecoin as well as Paxos Standard getting the credibility needed through being registered in the United States. By registering in the US, PAX provides a secure option for Wall Street investors since it is fully regulated. The irony of Bitfinex and Ethfinex listing the four aforementioned stablecoins, is that the earlier mentioned Bitcoin manipulation using USDT was allegedly carried out on Bitfinex. But the additional 4 stablecoins adds much needed credibility to the exchange. It shows that Bitfinex is willing to become a platform that caters for the needs and concerns of traders.

Bitfinex and Ethfinex List Four New Tether Competitors

CoinSpeaker Bitfinex and Ethfinex List Four New Tether Competitors Bitfinex, a popular cryptocurrency exchange based in Hong Kong, added support for four new stablecoins – USDC, True USD, Paxos, and Gemini USD. In their blog post the company announced: “From today customers can access all major stablecoins at Bitfinex, as we introduce USDC, True USD, Paxos, and Gemini USD to our existing Tether and Dai offering.” They also added: “At Bitfinex and Ethfinex we are dedicated to providing a high quality, unbiased meeting place for every ecosystem and customer. We were the first to introduce alternative stablecoins onto our platform, including Dai (an Ethereum collateralised stablecoin), and now proudly introduce the following established stablecoins: USDC, True USD, Paxos, and Gemini USD. All stablecoins on Bitfinex and Ethfinex will be traded against USD.” Except on the main trading platform, new stable coins will be available on Ethfinex, which previously supported only USDT and Dai. Thus, now Bitfinex and Ethfinex support all major stablecoins, reflecting the current market situation and customers’ demand. Before this, investors could only use Tether, which was created in 2014 and dominated the stablecoin market up until some months ago. This was mostly because it was the only stablecoin that was really very good and worked well. Nobody tried to imitate Tether until everybody did and now we have a large stablecoin market that is quickly expanding and becoming even bigger. Alternatives started to be launched from March 2018 onward and they established themselves as big players in the market. Even though Tether (USDT) dominates volumes across the crypto world, it has suffered very big problems of late with maintaining its supposed 1:1 ‘Tether’ (hence the name) with the US dollar. There were worries about its banking arrangements and whether it actually has the reserves necessary to support such a peg. This has given rise to the monitored phenomenon known in the crypto world as ‘The Tether Premium’, which describes the extra that the convenience of using USDT (especially on exchanges that don’t accept FIAT deposits or trade US dollar pairs) costs. That Premium currently stands at around 5% – or $175 – at the current somewhat depressed price of a Bitcoin, but has been over $1,000 at points in the last few months. It can be expected that just as thousands of altcoins and later tokens came to market, there will be an increasing number of stablecoin offerings, especially as traditional finance goes more and more crypto. Exchanges like Bitfinex appear ready to support anything their customers might use, while others such as Binance appear more reluctant to add stablecoin tokens without significant demand. Cryptocurrency exchange Binance, recently added Paxos as a base currency to its trading platform, and the exchange also announced support for USDC in mid-November. Bitcoin payment platform BitPay recently added PAX to its system, allowing employers and employees alike to both send and receive payments in the stablecoin. Alleged USDT Manipulations Just for a reminder, in October this year,  one Bitfinex employee, with access to insider information, has shared details of the Bitfinex investigation in regards to the anomalous growth of Bitcoin and decrease in the USDT. According to the employee, Bitfinex itself was not connected to the situation. Although, a third-party connected network of trading bots, that were set up for massive USDT sales, were implicated in the Bitcoin exchange rate manipulation. Bitfinex managed to find a connection between the accounts and, following the transactions of the wallets belonging to them, de-anonymized the possible initiator of the one-day Tether ‘crisis.’ An independent analyst who prepared the report for Bitfinex believes that IMMO was involved in the attack, which many media associate with the dynasty of bankers – the Rothschilds. Right now, we have to wait and see how the re-birth of Asia-specific stablecoins for currencies like the Chinese Yuan and the Japanese Yen. Such additions will essentially enable crypto traders to have a global reach and the ability to get from one continent to another in terms of financial liquidity with less effort than ever before, which will enable new types of payment platforms that had not previously been possible, even with the existence of Bitcoin.

Bitfinex and Ethfinex List All New Stablecoins (USDC, True USD, Paxos and Gemini USD)

Are you interested in having more options for using other stablecoins that are not Tether USD? Well, we got great news for you. Bitfinex and Ethfinex will start to offer the six major stablecoins in the market starting soon. Before that, you could only use Tether, which was created in 2014 and dominated the stablecoin market up until some months ago, mostly because it was the only stablecoin that was really very good and worked well. Nobody tried to imitate Tether until everybody did and now we have a large stablecoin market that is quickly expanding and becoming even bigger. Alternatives started to be launched from March 2018 onward and they established themselves as big players in the market. The tokens will now offer six options for the customers. Besides the traditional Tether (USDT) and an Ethereum-collateralized token called DAI, which was not as famous as Tether, they will offer four new options now: USD Coin (USDC), which was created by Circle; True USD (TUSD), Paxos Standard Token (PAX) and Gemini USD (GUSD). All of them will be paired against USD.

Bitfinex Gives Tether Competition, Adds Four of Market’s Top Stablecoins

Cryptocurrency exchanges Bitfinex and Ethfinex now support trading for all six of the market’s major stablecoins. Adding to its support for MakerDao’s Dai and Tether’s USDT, the sister platforms recently listed USD Coin (USDC), TrueUSD (TUSD), Paxos Standard Token (PAX) and Gemini USD (GUSD). All stablecoins available on the exchanges will be traded against the U.S. dollar.Launched in 2018, Ethfinex is Bitfinex’s ERC-20 exchange arm. Built for trading Ethereum tokens, the exchange is centralized at the moment, but the team plans to transform it into a decentralized exchange in the future. Bitfinex made the announcement in a December 4, 2018, blog post stating:“From today, customers of Bitfinex and Ethfinex will be able to trade all six major stablecoins on both exchanges. At Bitfinex and Ethfinex, we’re dedicated to providing a high quality, unbiased meeting place for every ecosystem and customer,” the post reads. Bitfinex’s promise to remain “unbiased” is notable given the exchange’s intrinsic ties to Tether. Both Bitfinex and Tether share a CEO, and the interoperations between both entities, which critics have regarded as opaque, have called Tether’s credibility into question, paving the way for the competing projects that Bitfinex has just listed. One of the biggest issues stemming from the cryptocurrency space is volatility. Many digital assets are known for experiencing wild price swings that can cause traders to incur unexpected and swift losses. Stablecoins are considered to be a viable solution to this volatility. These currencies are typically tied to varying forms of fiat, such as USD, the euro or the yen, lessening the chances of price swings and giving investors more security with their trades. Others, like Dai, are collateralized using cryptocurrencies, namely ether.Bitfinex and Ethfinex were the first digital currency exchanges to introduce their customers to the Dai, an Ethereum-based stablecoin. The addition of the four new coins follows Bitfinex rolling out USD and euro fiat pairs for Tether in November of this year.  Tether, the oldest and most popular of the stablecoins the two exchanges offer, was launched in 2014. Allegedly tied to USD, it was the only stablecoin available to crypto traders until this year, when the market saw the addition of several new stablecoins that brought Tether’s competition to higher ground. At press time, both deposits and withdrawals for these six coins are reserved only for verified traders across both platforms, though trading itself remains unaffected by a customer’s verification status. Stablecoins have seen increased exchange and platform adoption in the tail end of 2018. Cryptocurrency exchange Binance, for example, recently added Paxos as a base currency to its trading platform, and the exchange also announced support for USDC in mid-November. Bitcoin payment platform BitPay recently added PAX to its system, allowing employers and employees alike to both send and receive payments in the stablecoin.

Why Coinbase Probably Listed ZCash (ZEC) Before Stellar (XLM)

Right after listing Ethereum Classic (ETC) back in August, Coinbase set its eyes on the five digital assets of Ox (ZRX), Basic Attention Token (BAT), ZCash (ZEC), Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA). The exchange went on to list the first 2 digital assets in mid-October and early November respectively. The theory goes that the exchange is more inclined to list ERC20 tokens such as ZRX and BAT due to the ease of integrating with the platform which already supports Ethereum. This can explain why the exchange chose the two digital assets first. Why ZCash Was Listed Before Stellar (XLM) Just yesterday, Coinbase Pro announced that it was listing ZEC. This came as a surprise to many crypto investors and traders who thought Stellar (XLM) was next in line after BAT and ZRX. The exchange usually does not explain why it chooses to list one digital asset over another so we are going to attempt to explain why ZEC was listed before XLM. We are going to talk about two speculative reasons as to why this was so. Therefore, let us kick things off with the first reason why the exchange probably listed ZCash (ZEC) before Stellar (XLM). Competing With The Gemini Exchange By the Winklevoss To first reason ZEC was listed before XLM goes back in time when the Winklevoss did something out of the ordinary by listing ZCash (ZEC) on the Gemini Exchange back in mid May. The exchange also placed ZEC as one of its leading digital assets as it was paired with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash. A month later in mid June, Coinbase announced that it had interest in listing the 5 aforementioned digital assets. It is therefore not surprising to find that ZEC was in the list given the listing by Gemini only a month earlier. Coinbase was simply upping its game to compete with Gemini. Demand By Institutional Clients Given that the Gemini exchange already had a head-start on Coinbase by offering ZEC to institutional clients, it is only fitting that Coinbase would probably want to list the digital asset due to demand. If Gemini was offering ZEC since May 2018, some institutional clients wanting to do business with Coinbase probably asked about ZEC and the latter exchange had to comply 6 months later. Coinbase Opening an OTC Desk Due to Demands from Institutional Clients An example of Coinbase complying to the requests of investors can be seen when it announced earlier this week that it was planning to launch an OTC (Over The Counter) trading desk due to demand from institutional clients. Summing It Up ZEC was listed on Coinbase Pro ahead of Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA). The reasons for doing so remain a guarded secret at the exchange but we have explored two speculative reasons as to why this was so. The first one being that Coinbase wants to complete with the Gemini Exchange that had been offering ZEC to institutional clients since May. The second reason being the demand from institutional investors as a result of Gemini already offering ZEC for close to 6 months. Coinbase was sure to get requests to support ZEC and the team at the exchange complied with these requests. What are your thoughts on Coinbase listing ZEC before XLM and ADA? Please let us know in the comment section below.  [Image courtesy of Coinbase] Disclaimer: This article is not meant to give financial advice.

Huobi Launches HUSD Stablecoin To Support GUSD, PAX Token, USDCoin And True USD

For some, perhaps many, there is only one thing that can be called superior in comparison to a stablecoin, and that would be a universal one. When we say ‘universal', it means to have a coin that is immediately usable wherever stablecoins are accepted. This is exactly why the cryptocurrency coin exchange Huobi has announced the launch of its own HUSD token. What makes this stablecoin so unique is that it allows for the support of four major stablecoins. These include the Gemini Dollar, Paxos Standard, USDCoin and TrueUSD. How it works is relatively easy to understand – by holding HUSD, users are able to instantly have an amount that is equally valued in each of these stablecoins. During a small event which was held in New York over this week called the StableCoin New York Conference, and Huobi General Counsel Joshua Goodbody spoke to a detailed length about the efforts taken by him and the firm in general: “We believe the recent developments of stablecoins are positive for the industry and Huobi decided to support these developments proactively by launching HUSD. HUSD acts as a stablecoin aggregator,” Goodbody continued on to explain. “We provide the ability to deposit any of the four supported coins as HUSD and receive a 1:1 balance of HUSD which can be stored as well as traded against six pairs on Huobi Global. Users are also able to withdraw HUSD as any of the four applicable stablecoins.” It would seem that, while speaking at this event, Goodbody misspoke somewhat. According to the full exchange, the available pairs that are offered through HUSD are Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), EOS and USDT. What sets the USDT apart from other stablecoins is that it is the only one of these that is traded against the HUSD, as opposed to being part of its universal system. This is the second stablecoin effort that has decided to forego integration of USDT, which is the first pegged token. Regardless, the benefits that HUSD brings for users is that it can allow for the reduction of trading fees for those that are otherwise dealing with several types of markets. Much as we would like to believe,  there is no such thing as a market that lists every possible token and opportunity at the same time. So for many crypto traders, being able to move between exchanges is of the utmost necessity. Among these coin exchanges, Binance appears to be engaged in the creation of a stablecoin in a similar fashion to that of the HUSD, but unlike its counterpart, it has yet to announce a substantial amount of information about it. Unlike other digital tokens, the HUSD itself does not belong to any specific blockchain, but is merely a product in operation within the exchange. As a result, it cannot be subject to withdrawal or subsequently traded on with others. When these kinds of products emerge, they . will begin to look like the derivatives market on a superficial level Perhaps on the of net positives for that will be that they will have a far greater constitution. The addition of the TrueUSD, which will be the first token on the Trust Token platform which has yet to fully launch, it makes for a very interesting move by Huobi. Up to this point, the company is one of the few that has been outspoken in its support of Trust Token in any capacity. The Trust Token platform itself aims for the tokenization of any and all real-world assets using ‘smart trust' contracts. In doing so, it essentially enables anyone to offer a certain level of stock in something that they own. To date, its Initial Coin Offering has yet to officially launch, but TrueUSD is very real in the meantime, and operates on the exact same software.

Huobi Launches Multi-Stablecoin HUSD

For some, perhaps the only thing better than a stablecoin is a universal stablecoin – one that’s usable wherever stablecoins are accepted.

The Daily: Bitpay Adds Another Stablecoin, Waves to Launch Exchange in Malta

In this edition of the Daily, we look at Bitpay’s decision to add the U.S. dollar-pegged PAX token to its list of settlement currencies. We also cover a couple of recent announcements in the crypto industry. Waves is preparing to launch a regulated exchange in Malta and bitcoin mining giant Bitfury is planning to establish a startup accelerator in Russia. Also read: Binance Adds KYC, Bitcoin Businesses Block Gab Bitpay Offers Paxos Standard as Settlement Option Crypto payment processor Bitpay has introduced support for another regulated stablecoin. Paxos standard (PAX) is now among the cryptocurrencies that are available for merchant settlements, along with the recently added gemini dollar (GUSD) and Circle’s USD coin (USDC). The other two cryptocurrencies accepted by Bitpay are bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin core (BTC). The platform also supports seven fiat currencies, including the U.S. dollar, the euro and the British pound. “The paxos standard token (PAX) is now integrated with Bitpay as a settlement option for Bitpay merchants,” the crypto startup announced in a press release this week. “Paxos standard gives financial markets the power to transact in a fully USD-backed asset with the benefits of blockchain technology and oversight from financial regulators,” commented Charles Cascarilla, CEO and co-founder of Paxos. PAX is one of several stablecoins backed 1-to-1 with the U.S. dollar that were launched recently. In September, the New York State Department of Financial Services authorized Gemini Trust and Paxos Trust to issue digital coins pegged to the greenback. Later the same month, U.S.-based financial company Circle launched its own stablecoin, USDC, in collaboration with open-source consortium Centre. Tokenomica to Trade Digital and Fiat Currencies Waves has announced the upcoming launch of a new cryptocurrency trading platform based in Malta. The Tokenomica exchange will support trading pairs with both digital assets and fiat currencies. The new entity will be regulated under the Maltese Virtual Financial Assets Act. According to its team, the ability to operate in the regulated environment of “Blockchain Island” is a serious advantage. Representatives of the crypto startup told Forklog that before listing a new coin, Tokenomica will conduct a thorough inspection of the virtual asset and analyze other products and services offered by its issuer. Technical, marketing and business criteria will be applied during the review process. The exchange is already accepting requests for new listings. According to its developers, Tokenomica is the first element of a planned global financial platform that will allow companies to issue tokenized stocks and bonds, as well as other digital financial instruments. The new platform will meet all regulatory requirements, including know-your-customer and anti-money laundering rules, promised Alexander Ivanov, founder and chief executive of Waves. Bitfury Supports Startup Accelerator in Russia Bitfury Group, one of the largest mining companies and hardware manufacturers outside China, plans to establish an accelerator for Russian crypto and blockchain startups. The project is part of a strategic partnership agreement with Plekhanov University of Economics, the oldest business school in the country, and is backed by the Russian Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media. Under the agreement, the partners will develop a program to support promising new companies in the cryptocurrency sector and conduct educational courses to train experts for the nascent industry. “The development of the digital economy and blockchain technologies is impossible without high-quality education and training,” said Dmitry Ufaev, head of Russian operations at Bitfury. The global company, which has offices in San Francisco, London, Amsterdam and Hong Kong, recently closed an $80 million private placement funding round. Media reports have suggested that it may become the next bitcoin mining giant to conduct an initial public offering. In Russia, Bitfury is also supporting a professional course for legal experts working with cryptocurrency businesses. What are your thoughts on today’s news tidbits? Tell us in the comments section.

Silvergate Bank For Cryptocurrency Customers Pursues IPO As Bold Move Shows Market Confidence

With Over 480 Crypto Customers, Silvergate Bank Pursues IPO Cryptocurrency used to be an elite investment opportunity, starting with a successful platform that already sells tokens. However, as the industry has gravitated more towards mainstream use, banks have begun to get involved as well. In a recent announcement from Silvergate Capital Corporation, a new IPO is coming up to broaden their services to digital currency customers. Silvergate Capital Corporation is the holding company of Silvergate Bank, which consistently supportive of various startups. The corporation recently filed an S-1, hoping to launch an IPO with Barclays Capital Inc and Keefe, Bruyette & Woods as underwriters. Chief executive Alan Lane has consistently voiced the company’s support of customers tied in with cryptocurrency. Many firms that deal with crypto are deemed high-risk by financial institutions, according to a report from The Block. Still, Silvergate has managed to support many crypto platforms and tokens as startups, including big names like Gemini, Paxos, BitFlyer, and Kraken, even though these platforms were rejected by other banks. They have even supported blockchain analysis businesses and established their own platform called the Silvergate Exchange network, which makes it easy to move funds between accounts. The financial information included with the S-1 goes as late as September 30th of this year. In the S-1, they include multiple factors that impact their decision to launch an ICO, focusing highly on the varied customers they already help, like miners, exchanges, and custodians. The S-1 notes that the company is the holder of $1.7 billion in “non-interest-bearing deposits,” showing a year-over-year increase of 180.7%. The costs of these deposits and funds were less than 1% each, which allowed them to be involved with commercial real estate lending, mortgage warehouse lending, and other lending opportunities. The low costs had a lot to do with the increased digital currency customers, bringing in $14.3 million in profit for the year so far, based on data from January 1st to September 30th. Presently, crypto investors hold a significant portion of Silvergate’s stock at 13.1%, and it seems that Silvergate is looking to make them more prominent in their firm. This month alone, they already agreed to sell both a small business lending division and a retail branch, with each bringing in well over $100 million. Silvergate believes that their future expansion will be rooted in fiat-backed stablecoins, as they respond to the demands of examining crypto-business offerings. They also plan to collaborate with a banking partner internationally to make their effect more widespread.

Brave Browser Confirmed as HTC Exodus’ Default Web Browsing App

HTC is resolved to win the race for the best blockchain phone on the market. Its commitment to the community seems to be genuine and not only have they bet on accepting payment exclusively in cryptocurrencies to promote their use but also decided to include third-party software that makes use of these technologies. In a tweet published a few hours ago by Mr. Brendan Eich, CEO of Brave Software, he expressed his satisfaction after confirming HTC’s decision to include Brave as the Exodus’ default web browser. We are very happy to have @Brave as default browser & to be working with HTC on their Exodus phone: — BrendanEich (@BrendanEich) December 8, 2018 Brave Browser: Using Basic Attention Token (BAT) To Create a Better Internet Brave Browser uses blockchain technologies to improve the user experience and change the way content providers relate to consumers. The idea is to make browsing faster and more convenient by rewarding not only users for consuming content but also giving them the ability to benefit content creators. “Once you enable Brave Rewards, the Brave browser automatically and anonymously keeps track of sites each user visits. The more times that a user visits a site, the larger the proportion of the user’s monthly contribution is “ear-marked” for that content creator. When contributions for a content creator exceed $100.00 USD, an email is sent to both the webmaster of the site and the registered domain owner from your WHOIS information. The email explains how to verify the ownership of your website with Brave Software.” The token used by Brave Browser is the Basic Attention Token (BAT), a cryptocurrency that has recently gained considerable popularity, especially after the announcement that it has been supported by Coinbase to be traded on its platform. #brave the new browser from @BrendanEich @brave wants to reward users with #cryptocurrencies to see ads and make browsing cleaner and safer #DMT18 — ralfscharnhorst (@RalfScharnhorst) December 6, 2018 Blockchain-Phones: The New Trend For its part, the HTC Exodus 1 Phone is a phone created by HTC with blockchain technology focused on those users who want to manage their crypto coins from their mobile phone without additional hardware. To do this, HTC developed its own hardware wallet with multi-asset support. The wallet is named Zion and runs on independent hardware embedded into the phone. The main competition of the HTC Exodus, is the Sirin Labs’ Finney Phone, a device that has similar features but runs under a proprietary Operating System developed as an Android fork.

Mining Company Sues Roger Ver & Group for BCH Hard Fork Price Manipulation
