Thailand's ICO rule attracts exchanges, Lightning Network is growing, Bitcoin can change the climate, Tezos blockchain builds up its security
- Thailand’s new licensing rule governing ICOs appears to have gained interests from ICO and crypto exchange projects. A total of 20 crypto exchanges had already registered for licenses.
- The Lightning Network active on the Bitcoin mainnet has passed 3000 nodes with capacity for almost 100 BTC in August and 85% jump growth over the past month.
- The new study, 'Decarbonizing Bitcoin: Law and Policy Choices for Reducing the Energy Consumption of Blockchain technologies and Digital Currencies', asserts a large amount of electricity is eaten up as Bitcoin is exchanged and mined. These consumption habits could be churning out enough carbon emissions to affect global climate change.
- In the third week after opening its network security up to community involvement, Tezos' beta launch has been surprisingly smooth.
