Binance’s Ethereum-Based Trust Wallet Adds Bitcoin (BTC) Support

Trust wallet is a mobile crypto wallet, which supports ETH and more than 20,000 Ethereum tokens including those of the ERC223, ERC20, and ERC721 standards. It recently revealed that it would now support BTC. #bitcoin $BTC (#SegWit included) is now supported by our iOS Multi-coin wallet — Trust – Ethereum Wallet (@TrustWalletApp) December 9, 2018 Details Of The Announcement In the announcement, the iOS Trust Wallet will now offer segwit supports and will allow deposits of BTC via the Bech32 addresses. The company said that the capability would later come to Android devices in about 2-3 weeks. The news comes just a few after the wallets added TRON (TRX) support. Trust Wallet also supports POA Network, GoChain, EThereum Classic, VeChain, and Wanchain. Binance Acquisition Of Trust Wallet Binance acquired the Trust Wallet in July, by acquiring the wallet, the exchange wanted to offer better services and enhance the safety of Binance users. The Trust Wallet is an open source, secure and decentralized wallet. It has seen its user base grow significantly since it launched in December 2017. The company has a reputation for being a secure wallet. It has a policy of never accessing the wallets of users, holding their private keys, or asking for personal details from the users. With this acquisition, Binance added an on-chain mobile wallet to its list of services. At the time, it promised farther integration; a promise, which it has kept. Binance promised that the Trust Wallet team would continue to enjoy the same freedom and autonomy to develop the wallet. At the same time, they would benefit from the synergy that Binance has to offer including the large user base. Binance is a technology-driven company. By buying the Trust Wallet, it showed secure wallet tech has an important role to play in the crypto world. The purchase marked the first public acquisition that Binance has made. Since then, the wallet has continued to be quite reliable. How Binance Acquisition Helped Trust Wallet Binance said they would boost the business development of wallet. Besides that, they would make it part of the Binance decentralized exchange. The founder of Trust Wallet was quite pleased by the purchase. He said the purchase would help them continue to grow and have a positive impact on the industry. For one, it would mean that they were no longer pressed for resources. As a result, they could focus more on growth and development instead of worrying about the scarcity of development resources. It would also allow Trust Wallet to focus on adoption of the wallet by those who do not use it. In the past, Trust Wallet had tried to raise funds by holding a token sale. However, they had to cancel it due to regulatory woes. Thus, it was hard for them to compete with the big boys without safety compromises due to lack of resources. However, the purchase changed everything for them. About Binance Binance is the second biggest crypto exchange by trade volumes. By the end of 2018, the company expects that it will have earned revenue of $1 billion. It is currently registered in the Malta jurisdiction.

What is The Relationship Between Coin Distribution and Network Security? Economic Implications of Severing this Tie?

Right now, the Bitcoin model uses mining to secure the network and to distribute new mintage. This mining is "useful" since it helps stave off 51% attacks, and miners are also receiving new mintage as a reward for their Proof of Work. Thus, these tokens are scarce and difficult to obtain. With the advent of mineable tokens on Ethereum, for instance, through the EIP918 standard, it is possible to mine ERC20, ERC223, and ERC721 tokens. These tokens, however, are secured by the Ethereum consensus model (whether that be PoW or PoS based). The mining of these ERC918 tokens does not secure the network that the mined asset resides on. This is a curious situation, since these tokens essentially sever the tie between distribution and security. An argument can be made that token mining is "useless" since it does not serve a purpose in the network. The counterargument can be made that mining is useful either way since it enforces the scarcity of the mined asset. The most prominent example of a mineable token, 0xBitcoin, has been both praised and criticized for these reasons. Supporters claim that 0xBTC is useful as a currency precisely because it uses PoW for distribution, enforcing scarcity and trending towards some economic stability through mining. Also, by co-opting Ethereum network security, 0xBTC is death spiral and 51% attack immune. Critics will say that since the work doesn't actually secure a network, it renders the currency useless. What do you all think is the intersection of distribution, network security, and asset value/utility?

Tron (TRX) and NeoWorld to Create Exclusive 3D Virtual World Island on the Blockchain

Tron shows that there are many companies interested in working with the decentralized network that it is creating. According to Justin Sun, Tron’s CEO, the Trou Foundation partnered with NeoWorld to plan a new blockchain city. #TRON has established a partnership with NeoWorld. The cooperation between both parties will revolve around entering NeoWorld, planning the NeoWorld Exclusive Island, strengthening the cooperation within the community ecosystem, etc. #TRX $TRX — Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) November 8, 2018   The main intention is to create and plan the NeoWorld Exclusive Island and strengthen the cooperation within the community ecosystem. Indeed, Tron has already entered the NeoWorld building a new skyscraper that ranks top in height and working rewards. NeoWorld is an online and multiplayer virtual reality world that is based on blockchain technology. NeoWorld was able to create a 3-dimensional world that offers players the possibility to explore new worlds and create skylines. Users are also able to communicate through the game and have fun. It is also possible for players to establish professional and personal networks. At the moment, 100,000 land parcels were sold, there are 7.5 million buildings already built and 1.3 million jobs done per day. The NeoWorld Cash (NASH) cryptocurrency is used at the NeoWorld platform. The virtual currency is an Ethereum-based token on the ERC223 standards. At the same time, the token is also compatible with the ERC20 standard. The virtual currency can also be used to purchase and sell land in the virtual world. In the future, the TRX cryptocurrency could be embraced by the platform and be used side by side with the NASH virtual currency. This is just one of the many examples of what Tron and its blockchain platform are able to do in the cryptocurrency world.

Global Token Review – Top 5 Upcoming ICOs: ICOVO

ICOVO is a new addition to the field of Distributed Autonomous Initial Coin Offerings (DAICOs). A DAICO is a version of an ICO, which incorporates a few aspects of Distributed Autonomous Organisations (DAOs). The ICOVO platform intends to prevent the scams that have flooded the ICO market by utilising KYC/AML, whitepaper versioning, and smart contracts. The whitepaper versioning will make the use of blockchain and IPFS to ensure that whitepapers cannot be retrospectively altered. Only ICO projects which are approved and comply with the DAICO model will be allowed on this platform. The ecosystem includes an ICOVO App and ICOVO Web, which have been developed to reduce the high barriers to entry in the ICO marketplace. The platform’s wallets also conform to ERC20 and ERC223 standards. The platform will ensure that it has a refunding process if an ICO is claimed to be a scam or is faulty, based on the voting done by the network. Development of the project started in early 2018 and is still in progress – the ICO will begin in November 2018, and will be active for 30 days. Project founders, as well as investors, are very keen to start using the ICOVO platform. This enthusiasm has helped ICOVO to develop a healthy social media presence, and it is likely to be a popular choice for investors when the ICO launches next month.

Digitex Futures Tokenomics: Why DGTX Looks Set to Keep Rising

When it comes to innovative business models, Digitex Future Exchange is working to take the cake. Live from Q4 this year, traders will soon be able to trade Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum Futures with ZERO commission fees. They say it all starts with a dollar and a dream. In this case, it all starts with the DGTX token and a vision for a highly liquid trading platform profitable for futures traders. Let’s take a closer look. What Is DGTX and Why Is it Increasing in Value? For the technically inclined, DGTX is an ERC-223 compatible protocol token based on the Ethereum blockchain. It is required to perform all functions on the exchange, which means there will be a continued demand for it. The DGTX was created to be the native currency of the Digitex Futures exchange and will be used for denominating: Trader Profits Trader Losses Margin requirements Account Balances A Hybrid Model for Increased Security and Speed To provide traders with confidence in the performance of the exchange, Digitex combines the speed of a centralized server and the security of a decentralized blockchain. This hybrid solution in conjunction with smart contracts provides the following benefits: Digitex exchange is scalable to deal with high volume trading The central server allows traders to make real-time calls on trades Traders will be able to use sophisticated trading tools and strategies Traders can use leverage to optimize their positions Bad actors can’t inject fake data to make withdrawals Servers hold no funds and are therefore not attractive to hackers Funds used in a contract can’t be used by the exchange Smart contracts have limited function and reduce the chance of human manipulation There are additional benefits to things being set up this way. For example, Digitex will never hold or control your tokens. Traders will always control their private keys. This is what you want to hear when it comes to security (or lack of) on an exchange. And it will be used in the smart contracts to reduce the overall cost of on-chain transactions. The Digitex Futures ICO Digitex Futures held their ICO in January of this year and it sold out in a record-breaking 17 minutes! This demonstrated a clear demand for commission-free futures trading and helped the company amass a large community of supporters. The price was 0.02 and over the last 30 pays has since experienced a 175.85% rise valued in USD. At the time of writing this article, DGTX token was priced at 0.07! The word is getting out among the trading community, Digitex is going to lower the barrier to entry for futures exchanges. The enhanced UX with one-click trade calls in real-time is what traders are looking forward to. The futures exchange will provide the right platform for new and older traders to develop more aggressive trading strategies that could be more lucrative, in turn, building liquidity in the market. Moreover, CEO Adam Todd will be demoing the platform live at the Malta Blockchain Summit 2018, next month. Token holders are anticipating the presentation on the Blockchain Island and the Q4 launch. All the preparation for launch day means the DGTX price is rising in value and all the signs are good for it staying that way, by far outperforming all major altcoins. The Magic of Commission-Free Trading How does a trading exchange manage to offer commission-free trading? Zero fee trading is achieved by minting a small amount of DGTX tokens to cover costs. In order to use the exchange, traders must purchase DGTX tokens in order to buy or sell futures contracts. What trader would pass up on the chance of unlimited trading with zero trading fees? When the platform launches later this year, this will have a two-fold effect for traders. One, traders looking to enjoy the feature of zero-fee trading will create a demand for the token. And two, the value of the DGTX token will almost certainly surge once more because of the limited supply in circulation. Digitex Futures will also use automated market makers. These are basically trading bots programmed to break even and increase liquidity. They have been allocated 200 million tokens to use help with stabilizing the supply and demand of orders. Decentralized Governance by Blockchain The issuance of new coins is how Digitex covers the cost the trading of Bitcoin futures contracts and daily operations of the exchange. The supply of the DGTX token will be regulated by the DGTX community. The decision on how many and when tokens will be added to the circulation pool will be voted on. Token owners will have an equal vote. The power to the balance of price growth and inflation will be placed in the hands of the DGTX token holders. Thanks to its record ICO sell out in January of this year, Digitex has raised the funds needed to cover operations until 2021. Meaning there is some time until token revenue voting needs to be done. But more importantly, the cost of trading will be covered for the next two years once the exchange goes live later this year.    Making Sense of it All Digitex Futures Exchange is working to build something innovative. The exchange is opening the door to commission-free crypto futures trading. By combining centralized and decentralized technologies a balanced level of security and speed will be achieved. Traders will be able to enjoy one-click trading and the option of placing margin calls. There will even automated market makers to help build liquidity. The issuance of tokens will be based on what DGTX community votes on by decentralized governance. Token holders will have a voice. In reviewing the track record of the token price, DGTX is already making a name for itself in the 2018 bear market by not following the trend of other coins depreciating in value. No one has a crystal ball for what the markets will do, but our bet is on the DGTX going up and up. The post Digitex Futures Tokenomics: Why DGTX Looks Set to Keep Rising appeared first on ZyCrypto.

Binance CEO Supports VeChain (VET and VTHO) with Trust Wallet Integration

Binance CEO Backs VeChain After It is Added To The Platform’s Trust Wallet Trust Wallet, a popular ETH-based mobile wallet, has recently announced on Twitter that it would release support for VeChain (VET) and VeChain Thor (VTHO) tokens. Also, it has affirmed that it would integrate Wanchain (WAN) to the platform. This wallet company has been recently acquired by Binance and it is aiming to provide enhanced services for its clients. Now, the users of this iOS and Android wallet will be able to have access to these tokens and to many others like ERC20, ERC223 and ERC721-based tokens, as well as the original Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and GoChain (GO). The CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao (commonly known as “CZ”) has also affirmed that this is one of the better wallets in the market and that the Trust Wallet will support some other tokens in the future. These upcoming tokens include some of the most popular cryptos of the moment like the mighty Bitcoin (BTC), Tron (TRX) and NEO. At the time of this report, VeChain (VET) was the 19th token of the market via market capitalization and it is worth $0.012 USD per token. The market capitalization value of the token is $706 million USD. People Comment On The Matter Some people have commented about the case on social media. A Redditor named Bossanovawitcha has affirmed that the whole thing is “quite noteworthy in and of itself” and Marmot1991, another Redditor, has affirmed that it is good not to be supporting a single token like ETH and ETH-based tokens, so VeChain is a great choice. Tommyp408, from Twitter, has affirmed that he was happy that Binance was moving to Malta, a country in which tokens are considerably more supported than in China.

Binance CEO backs VeChain after being added to the platform’s Trust Wallet

On 27th September, Trust Wallet, a mobile Ethereum Cryptocurrency announced on Twitter that it has released support for VeChain [VET] and VeChain Thor [VTHO]. The wallet has also disclosed the integration of Wanchain [WAN] to its platform. Trust Wallet’s official announcement | Source: Twitter Trust Wallet was recently acquired by cryptocurrency exchange, Binance with an aim to provide better services and enhanced safety and security to users. Trust wallet has retained its anonymity post the acquisition and therefore users will have access to both the VeChain and Wanchain currencies via Trust’s multi-coin wallet on iOS and Android devices. The wallet is a decentralized application [dApp] that is open source and anonymous with support for ERC20, ERC223, and ERC721 tokens including digital assets such as Ethereum [ETH], Ethereum Classic [ETC], and GoChain [GO]. Changpeng Zhao aka CZ, the CEO of Binance stated: “One of the best mobile wallet for your crypto just got better!  BUIDL!” Trust Wallet has also announced that they plan to add support for Bitcoin [BTC], Tron [TRX] and NEO in the following year. At the time of writing, VeChain [VET] was sitting at the 19th position in terms of market capitalization. At press time, VET was trading at $0.012 with a market capitalization of $706 million. A Redditor named Bossanovawitcha commented:  “Goes out of his way to note Vechain is first staking coin supported. It is quite noteworthy in and of itself.” Another Redditor named Marmot1991 stated: “But for now that wallet support just ETH and ETH tokens. Binance buys this wallet and now the first coin on its own network is VeChain. I think this is one of a kind of support.” A Twitter user named Tommyp408 said: “It is a free world. Each person can choose where they want to live or conduct their business at Binance should operate in a country that has regulations that support crypto. I guess this is why so many other blockchain companies are moving to Malta.” The post Binance CEO backs VeChain after being added to the platform’s Trust Wallet appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Binance Trust Wallet Introduces Wanchain Integration for Improved Transfers

Wanchain is a protocol that supports decentralized interoperability asset transfers. Though they have been integrated with multiple entities, the latest integration they are a part of is Binance’s Trust Wallet. As Binance works to improve the services and safety of their community, Wanchain is excited about the ability to give “a secure and intuitive mobile wallet for all Wanchain users.” The company announced the integration through a Medium post on September 26th. Trust Wallet is no stranger to integration. Along with Wanchain, there have been many others that they have decided to accept, like ERC20 and ERC223 tokens. The Trust Wallet that Binance uses was only acquired in July 2018, even though the userbase was rather small. Still, there is no way for these wallets to hold funds on their native servers, and they thrive on the concept of responsible decentralization. However, this wallet lets users anonymously store their assets. To ensure security, the application has already been through a bank-level audit. This audit discovered additional security, in the even of theft. However, adding to the benefit, users have the option to use the wallet to get involved with decentralized application and exchanges, since it is compatible with every ERC20 token. Anyone that uses Trust Wallet as their main storage has the option to use email and social connections to resolve any concerns as they happen. Tokens can easily be added to the digital portfolio, and they have completely control of their private keys. Even though Binance is not a stranger to these integrations, WAN tokens are not even close to being widely accepted. They have only been integrated into two others, which include their own platform and the Portal Network iOS wallet. According to the Medium post, “The Wanchain infrastructure simplifies the creation of distributed financial applications for individuals and organizations to access financial services such as loans, asset exchange, multi-asset ICOs, and other asset management capabilities. Wanchain 2.0 enables the cross-chain functionalities with Ethereum. Wanchain 3.0, which will launch before the close of 2018, will enable the same functionalities with Bitcoin.”

Researches from MIT, Stanford Set to Replace Bitcoin with Their Groundbreaking Crypto Project

CoinSpeaker Researches from MIT, Stanford Set to Replace Bitcoin with Their Groundbreaking Crypto Project Until now, everybody has been talking about Bitcoin, the most popular and widely used digital currency. However, Bitcoin is unable to process thousands of transactions a second. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), UC-Berkeley, Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Southern California, and the University of Washington have decided to fix such a weakness and develop a crypto asset better than Bitcoin. The researchers are working together as Distributed Technology Research (DTR), a non-profit organization based in Switzerland and backed by hedge fund Pantera Capital. The first initiative of Distributed Technology Research is the Unit-e, a virtual coin that is expected to solve bitcoin’s scalability issues while holding true to a decentralized model and process transactions faster than even Visa or Mastercard. Babak Dastmaltschi, Chairman of the DTR Foundation Council, said: “The blockchain and digital currency markets are at an interesting crossroads, reminiscent of the inflection points reached when industries such as telecom and the internet were coming of age. These are transformative times. We are nearing the point where every person in the world is connected together. Advancements in distributed technologies will enable open networks, avoiding the need for centralized authorities. DTR was formed with the goal of enabling and supporting this revolution, and it is in this vein that we unveil Unit-e.” According to the press release, Unit-e will be able to process 10,000 transactions per second. That’s worlds away from the current average of between 3.3 and 7 transactions per second for Bitcoin and 10 to 30 transactions for Ethereum. Joey Krug, a member of the DTR Foundation Council and Co-Chief Investment Officer at Pantera Capital, believes that a lack of scalability is holding back cryptocurrency mass adoption. He said: “We are on the cusp of something where if this doesn’t scale relatively soon, it may be relegated to ideas that were nice but didn’t work in practice: more like 3D printing than the internet.” The project’s ideology is firmly rooted in transparency, with a belief in open-source, decentralized software developed in the public interest with inclusive decision-making. The core team of the project is based in Berlin. To solve the scalability problem, DTR has decided to develop the Unit-e with parameters very close to Bitcoin’s design, but many things will be improved. Gulia Fanti, DTR lead researcher and Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, commented: “In the 10 years since Bitcoin first emerged, blockchains have developed from a novel idea to a field of academic research. Our approach is to first understand fundamental limits on blockchain performance, then to develop solutions that operate as close to these limits as possible, with results that are provable within a rigorous theoretical framework.” The launch of the Unit-e is planned for the second half of 2019.
