Last week, one of the most anticipated and exciting crypto conferences took place in New York. I’m of course talking about MCC 2019 – the Magical Crypto Conference – organised by Riccardo Spagni (Monero), Samson Mow (Blockstream), WhalePanda, and Charlie Lee (Litecoin). I highly advise you to watch the conference – which is now available on YouTube – as really cool speakers like Adam Back and Luke Dash Jr gave some quite interesting presentations. The conference mainly focused on Lightning Network (LN) improvements and on privacy, as those are the two main current Bitcoin bottlenecks: transaction speed (scalability) and privacy (security). Another awesome conference that took place last week was Consensus 2019 – one most of you are probably aware The post Cryptocurrency development updates: Lightning Network and altcoins appeared first on Coin Rivet.
The 2020 US presidential candidate Andrew Yang – who is famous for his flagship policy of giving every American over the age of 18 $1,000 a month – made an appearance at Consensus 2019 last week to talk about his support for a better US regulatory framework for the digital asset and cryptocurrency industry. Speaking at the event, Yang said that he believes “that blockchain needs to be a big part of our future”, stating that if he makes it to the White House, “oh boy are we going to have some fun in terms of the cryptocurrency community”. I'm not part of the Yang Gang but I am intrigued to see a 2020 candidate with a position on cryptos. The post Could the Yang Gang take the crypto debate mainstream? appeared first on Coin Rivet.

With a variety of trading pairs and altcoins available plus a relatively easy-to-use interface, Bittrex is an ideal place for both new users wanting to buy altcoins and those who have experience trading cryptocurrencies.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading above $7,800 after price recovered during the weekend following a flash sell-off at the end of last week. BTC is trading above its 50-day, 100-day, and 200-day EMAs after a massive spike in price earlier in May which took Bitcoin through the roof on almost all exchanges. I’m hopeful the trend will continue for the time being, but there may well be another pullback on the horizon which could take BTC back to $5,800 – $6,200. Let’s take a look at what’s going on with the Bitcoin markets this Monday. Bitcoin/USD Bitcoin experienced another parabolic rally this weekend, boosted by the further escalation in the US-China trade war.

“I believe that blockchain needs to be a big part of our future. If I’m in the White House, oh boy are we going to have some fun in terms of the cryptocurrency community.” Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang “There’s a popular perception that the rate limiting factor in blockchain adoption is something to do with the technology itself — like the technology isn’t scalable, it’s not fast enough, the developer tools aren’t in place. But in my experience is that’s really not the rate limiting factor at this point. It’s not even at the top of my list.

Goldman Sachs-backed crypto finance venture, Circle, has published a third-party audit of its USD-pegged stablecoin, USD Coin (USDC). This is an Ethereum-based token compliant with the ERC20 standard first announced in May last year and released a few months later.

Earlier this month, we reported cyber security pioneer and crypto advocate John McAfee’s belief that the US government would soon act in order to silence him. “I want you all to know that everything I have done, I have done for the cause of freedom. I want a world in which authorities discover crimes, not manufacture them. A free world,” he told his almost one million Twitter followers. McAfee is on the run from US authorities who earlier this year indicted him, his wife and four members of his staff for tax fraud. And this week a dramatic statement appeared on Twitter. “Developing events have made it necessary for John McAfee to go dark,” someone wrote on his account Thursday. “Please be The post John McAfee goes dark, posts link to Newsweek interview appeared first on Coin Rivet.
The battle between the regulators and the crypto-anarchists is going to be a long one. Now that the Bitcoin genie is out of the bottle and has been since 2008, governments and regulators have been slow to catch up with this new phenomenon. Many of the major exchanges now enforce KYC compliance on their customers, which removes much of the anonymity that cryptocurrency enthusiasts strive for. Those in favour of KYC compliance argue that it ensures customers’ safety, but is this truly the case? What is KYC? Know Your Customer – or KYC as it is often referred to – ensures that cryptocurrency exchanges know precisely who they are dealing with. The process usually involves uploading a selfie, a utility The post How KYC compliance keeps your cryptocurrency protected appeared first on Coin Rivet.

Bitcoin Cash has beaten Bitcoin to the punch and has implemented Schnorr Signatures onto its platform first – something its supporters are keen to remind proponents of BTC. However, the hard fork used to implement this upgrade didn’t quite go to plan, with a cyberattack seemingly taking place on the network. It has since recovered and is now working as normal. Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash have a heated history of disagreement, but both appear to agree on the benefits of Schnorr Signatures. Why implement Schnorr Signatures? Schnorr Signatures have been around since the 1980s. However, due to a patent filed on the cryptographic technique by creator Claus Schnorr, the usage of Schnorr Signatures wasn’t widely available until 2008 – coincidentally The post Why Bitcoin Cash has signed up for Schnorr Signatures appeared first on Coin Rivet.
