Censorship, Bans, and ETH Scams: Twitter Suspends Bitmain’s Official Account

Censorship, Bans, and ETH Scams: Twitter Suspends Bitmain's Official Account

This week the Twitter handle @Bitmaintech was locked down because Twitter administrators claimed the account belongs to a 4-year-old. The Twitter handle’s owner and Bitmain’s head of marketing have complained to the social media company’s support team and Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey. The account lockdown marks the second high profile bitcoin-related account that’s been banned from Twitter in just a few months.

The Official Bitmain Tech Twitter Account Has Been Suspended

On June 14 Bitmain Tech’s head of marketing Nishant Sharma tweeted to his followers that the company’s official Twitter account @Bitmaintech had been banned from Twitter. At the moment the Twitter account is completely inaccessible to the public and the Beijing-based company’s active ad campaigns have been paused.

The official @Bitmaintech Twitter account was locked on June 14, 2018.

Bitmain’s account accumulated thousands of Twitter followers over the past four years and now the account is unable to post or utilize the social media platform in any manner until the case is resolved.          

“The @Bitmaintech account is temporarily inaccessible because apparently, Twitter thinks that the people behind the account are as old as Bitmain i.e. 4 years old,” says Sharma.

It should be back soon (and long before Bitmain turns 13). @Jack help please. Case# 85911059

The Recent @Bitcoin Account Suspension

The account removal comes at an awkward time for the Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, who has been asked to address multiple issues tied to the social media platform. For instance, just recently the @Bitcoin account was banned and the topic was very controversial. The account with over 750,000 followers was initially suspended and then the account was restored with a much lower follower count than it had prior to the ban. Some people accused Dorsey of being biased and showing a conflict of interest towards supporters of the Lightning Network (LN) by allowing the banning of the @Bitcoin account. The reason for this speculation is due to Dorsey’s recent investment into the LN project.

 Legitimate Accounts Banned, but ETH Bot Impersonation Thrives

Twitter users within the cryptocurrency industry are also dealing with the vast amounts of scamming ETH bots that have cloned nearly every well-known person in the crypto-community. The ETH bots have managed to scam millions worth of ether because Twitter will not remove the fraudulent accounts impersonating digital currency luminaries. So essentially people are pretty frustrated that Twitter has managed to ban and censor legitimate users like @Bitcoin and @Bitmaintech, while allowing fraudulent scammers to run amuck all over the platform.

Censorship, Bans, and ETH Scams: Twitter Suspends Bitmain's Official Account

The case of Bitmain losing it’s official account, because Twitter admins believe it belongs to a four-year-old, seems absurd, but Twitter has been a whacky place lately, and the company hasn’t been very responsive. The issues with Twitter also follows the recent accusations and admissions stemming from other social media platform CEOs abusing their powers. Back in 2016, the Reddit CEO Steve Huffman admitted to editing comments on the pro-Donald Trump subreddit, r/the_donald. This year Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has been scrutinized for selling user data to Cambridge Analytica. And now Twitter users are complaining about banned accounts and censorship and many of them are pointing their fingers at Jack.   

What do you think about Bitmain’s Twitter account getting banned because admins believe the account belongs to a four-year-old child? Do you think Jack Dorsey and Twitter have a lot of explaining to do? Let us know your thoughts on this subject in the comment section below.

Ripple CEO: Bitcoin Controlled by Chinese, Absurd to Think it Could be Primary World Currency

Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple CEO, answered candidly during an interview about crypto’s prospects for the future. Among other criticisms, he stressed blockchain technology is mostly hype, and that bitcoin core (BTC) is controlled by Chinese miners and has no hope of being a world currency.

Ripple CEO Bashes Bitcoin

Attendees of the 2018 Stifel Cross Sector Insight Conference in Boston yesterday were probably expecting to learn more about Ripple, the world’s third most popular cryptocurrency by market capitalization. After all, none other than company CEO Brad Garlinghouse was guest of honor for an interview with Stifel Tech analyst Lee Simpson. And while Ripple certainly was the hot topic, Mr. Garlinghouse also took the opportunity to bash its main decentralized competitor, bitcoin core (BTC).

“A number of prominent people,” Mr. Garlinghouse explained, “even Steve Wozniak, has said that he sees a world where Bitcoin is the primary currency. I think that’s absurd. I don’t think that any major economy will allow that to happen. By the way, it doesn’t make sense.” Indeed Woz has said as much, as have Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey, who predicted it would happen within the decade.

Ripple CEO: Bitcoin Controlled by Chinese, Absurd to Think it Could be Primary World Currency

Brad Garlinghouse, 47, has held his present position since 2015. His professional background is almost all technology related. Stints with Yahoo!, AOL, working in the investment arena with the likes of Silver Lake Partners, @Ventures, @Home Network, SBC Communications, all round out his experience prior to Ripple.

His views about BTC and its eventual influence have found him very quotable of late, especially this month. He’s spent a great deal of time attempting to separate the coin aspect of Ripple (XRP) from the company itself, and this has lead to some interesting juxtapositioning in his method of argument.

BTC Blockchain Not Disruptive, Chinese in Control

During the Boston interview, he even took on the sacred cow of the corporate world, BTC’s distributed ledger technology. “There’s a lot of blockchain craziness, but there are three indicators of market winners. Blockchain will not disrupt banks […] it will play an important role in the way our system works. It’s a short-sighted view […]. Bitcoin is not the panacea we thought it would be.”

Mr. Garlinghouse then compared XRP to BTC. “This is how liquidity will be managed in the future. Bitcoin today takes 45 minutes to settle a transaction. Banks will use what is efficient and cheaper. And if you deliver a better product at a better price […] they will use it.” Ripple CEO: Bitcoin Controlled by Chinese, Absurd to Think it Could be Primary World Currency

An under-reported story, Ripple’s CEO insisted, is how BTC is “owned by China.” He noted, “The smartest thing you’ve done is not have ‘bit’ or ‘coin’ in your name. I’ll tell you another story that is underreported, but worth paying attention to. Bitcoin is really controlled by China. There are four miners in China that control over 50% of Bitcoin. How do we know that China won’t intervene? How many countries want to use a Chinese-controlled currency? It’s just not going to happen.”

Lastly, he assured, “I own bitcoin. Many people consider it as digital gold. I acknowledge, I’m long [on] crypto. I’d advise folks to only invest in crypto only what you’re willing to lose. It’s early to tell how it is going to play out. I think it’s a pretty good investing strategy. I don’t think about the digital asset market. I think about the customer experience. There are millions unbanked or underbanked. When I think about the transformation, it is fundamentally changing the way millions participate in banking. We can fundamentally change the way this works, to bring an entire population up a step in the system.”

Do you think Ripple’s CEO is correct? Let us know in the comments.

Ethereum (ETH) Fake Twitter Giveaways Take Over – Get it Together Jack Dorsey

Ethereum [ETH]

Ethereum (ETH) – We’ve all seen it, the pinned posts from most cryptocurrency leaders on Twitter stating that they “are not giving away or accepting digital assets.” Mostly, it revolves around the world’s second largest cryptocurrency Ethereum [ETH], but it has made its way to other digital tokens as well.

As a public announcement, I will never ask you to send me ether, ada or any other asset. These are scams and if you fall for them, then you will lose your money. Please use commonsense and critical thinking!

Bitmex to VIPs: Bitcoin Won’t Replace Fiat, Just a ‘Useful Niche,’ Enthusiasts ‘Naive’

Bitmex to VIPs: Bitcoin Won’t Replace Fiat, Just a ‘Useful Niche,’ Enthusiasts 'Naive'

Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange (Bitmex) released proprietary research reportedly geared toward their VIPs. Researchers find bitcoin core’s (BTC) deflationary aspects interesting for speculation and as a “payment system,” but predict it will ultimately not usurp government paper, describing the BTC phenomenon as simply a “useful niche,” and those who “think Bitcoin would result in a more prosperous economic system” as “naive.” It’s a strange position to take as a bitcoin exchange.

Before Weirdly Turning, Bitmex Praises BTC’s Deflationary Aspects

In conclusion, Bitmex researchers lukewarmly laud bitcoin core’s merits, arguing how “to many, Bitcoin’s ability to decouple debt from money and thereby result in a deflationary climate without the deflationary debt spiral problem is the point, rather than a bug.” Still, Bitcoin Economics – Deflationary Debt Spiral, published recently by the exchange for its VIPs, refers to those who believe bitcoin “would result in a more prosperous economic system” as being “naive.” Piling on in this manner, they continue, “Bitcoin is a new and unique system, which is likely to cause more economic problems, perhaps unexpected or new ones.”

Bitcoin Economics – Deflationary Debt Spiral, is the final in a three part series by the Hong Kong-based Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange (Bitmex). Hot shot, risk enticed futures traders are emboldened by the exchange’s shorting ability and 100x leveraged contracts. Contracts can only be purchased and settled in bitcoin core (BTC), all without the bother of holding actual coins. Bitcoin cash, bitcoin core, ripple, ether, litecoin, cardano round out possible contract choices.

Bitmex to VIPs: Bitcoin Won’t Replace Fiat, Just a ‘Useful Niche,’ Enthusiasts 'Naive'

The report was initially released by a cranky Twitter polemicist who claimed it to be an exclusive get, designed for Bitmex’s VIPs. Days later, the exchange would publish it on their site for all to see. The report’s focus was to “examine the deflationary nature of Bitcoin and consider why this deflation may be necessary due to some of Bitcoin’s weaknesses.”

Deflation, as a matter of course, occurs when the value of money increases. In the modern West, at least, this concept has largely been only theoretically known. And then crypto. And then bitcoin. Cursory surveys, and perhaps the reader’s own experience, revealed during 2017 the tension many bitcoiners faced. Used to government tickets eventually and methodically losing value through inflation, a bargain cut between court economists and the first to receive newly printed paper meant every incentive in the average person’s experience pointed to spending. Spend those tickets before they lose more value.

Fundamentally Different

The opposite was evident for most of last year. And this third report by Bitmex takes into consideration long held beliefs about money in this respect. “Critics have argued that history has taught us that a finite monetary supply can be a poor economic policy, resulting in or exacerbating, economic crashes. Either because people are unwilling to spend appreciating money or because the real value of debt increases, resulting in a highly indebted economy. Bitcoin proponents are often called ‘economically naive,’ for failing to have learnt these economic lessons of the past,” researchers explain.

Bitmex believes economics, when it comes to bitcoin core, are “fundamentally different” from anything preceding. “There may be unique characteristics about Bitcoin, which make it more suited to a deflationary policy,” they argue. “Alternatively, limitations or weaknesses in Bitcoin could exist, which mean that too much inflation could have negative consequences not applicable to traditional forms of money.” Bitmex to VIPs: Bitcoin Won’t Replace Fiat, Just a ‘Useful Niche,’ Enthusiasts 'Naive'

Deflation’s bad rap in the United States, for example, can be attributed to Irving Fisher’s appraisal of causes and exacerbation of the Great Depression of 1929. And the Bitmex part three meditation presents his arguments well as a chain of consequences where hoarding, or as crypto enthusiasts understand, hodling, only served to severely worsen the problem, according to Fisher. Yet, “maybe Fisher’s view on inflation was correct for the economy in the 20th century, however by 2150 technology may have fundamentally changed to such an extent that another inflation policy may be more appropriate for society,” they contend.

Turning from mere description, Bitmex researchers hit upon a rather novel concept: bitcoin is not a debt based currency, the kind government paper all over the world is. That is a fundamental difference, and it follows economies would behave differently should something like bitcoin core take hold. In a bitcoin based, deflationary economy, an economic downturn’s “impact of increases in the real value of debt could be less significant than one may think. This could make the deflationary debt spiral argument less relevant in a Bitcoin based economy,” they note.  

A Cynical, Dismissive Way to View Bitcoin’s Potential

Given BTC’s deflationary aspects, its being so fundamentally different, and how traditional economic theory is at a loss to grapple with it, Bitmex would seem to hold the coin in high esteem. No, not really. Not at all, in fact. Very near the report’s end, VIPs are given the candid, unvarnished truth as the exchange sees it. Bitcoin core is a speculative plaything, an interesting project to perhaps make some interim profit if one is positioned well.

“Much of this discussion focuses on the economics of Bitcoin, assuming Bitcoin is widely adopted, such that the inflationary dynamics have an impact on society,” the report tantelizes. Curiously, the report doesn’t account for BTC’s notorious problems as a functioning currency in terms of block size, mempool congestion, and transaction fees – a debate lived out along side BTC by bitcoin cash (BCH). Researchers do not believe BTC will be widely adopted.  

Bitmex to VIPs: Bitcoin Won’t Replace Fiat, Just a ‘Useful Niche,’ Enthusiasts 'Naive'

“In our view [wide BTC adoption] is an unlikely outcome and perhaps should be considered even more unlikely by Bitcoin’s critics. In our view, Bitcoin may satisfy a useful niche, that of making both censorship resistant and digital payments, but it’s unlikely to become the main currency in the economy. Therefore the debate about Bitcoin’s deflationary nature should be considered as largely irrelevant anyway. Hence, it is therefore somewhat odd that some critics use this as an argument against Bitcoin,” thereby negating almost the entirety of the previous report findings.

The last thought left with readers is a cynical, just-in-case principle: “if one thinks these economic problems associated with deflation have a remote chance of being relevant, like the critics indirectly imply, that would mean Bitcoin has a significant chance of becoming widely adopted and hugely successful. In that case, perhaps the sensible thing to do is buy and ‘HODL’.”

PR: Tron Mainnet Launched – Young Team Dispelled Rumors with Sweat, Perseverance and Success

Tron Mainnet Launched - Young Team Dispelled Rumors with Sweat, Perseverance and Success

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

TRX made a hit as the first cryptocurrency whose value exceeded a hundred times of its issuance price in 2018 when the New Year had been only a few days away. In a flash, it squeezed itself into the Top 20 list of cryptos with highest market capitalization. Since then, TRON has recruited a mighty tech team and released a series of iterations. Albeit good news now and then, TRON is never short of controversaries and even rumors.

Yesterday, TRON launched its Mainnet. All rumors were dispelled, and TRON came again under the spotlights.

First, I’ll talk about highlights of the launch, in case you don’t know yet.

TRON Mainnet Launch began as scheduled at GMT+8 of May 31, 2018. Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, announced that TRON Mainnet was officially launched in a TRON T-shirt. Rephrasing the famous line of Neil Armstrong, the first human stepping on the moon, Sun proudly claimed that “Odyssey 2.0 launch is one small step for TRON, one giant leap for blockchain.”

Sun explained in English what TRON had done and would do as such:
1. TRON takes the crown for commits in Q2, totaling more than any other blockchain project in the world;
2. TRON has completed mainnet token migration and shed its identity as an ERC token;
3. With 1.08M tokenholders, TRON is now the #1 token on Ethereum, far ahead of any other cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin and EOS;
4. TRON attracts much more attention than other blockchains on Youtube, Twitter, Weibo, WeChat, Reddit and other online platforms, promising to be the hottest cryptocurrency globally;
5. With a consistent trade volume of between USD 500M – USD 1B, TRON has stabilized in the top 5 of most traded cryptos;
6. More than 100 trading pairs have been activated for international transactions;
7. As the TVM version is scheduled to be launched on July 31, TRON is expected to complete basic infrastructure for a decentralized ecosystem in Q3.

In the end of his speech, Sun urged all TRON users to participate in the June 26 Super Representative Election.

After Sun, Lucien Chen (CTO), Marcus Zhao (director of blockchain R&D), Haoqi Zhao (director of technical operation) and Wendy Yi (product director) gave their speeches about TRON and its plans. TRON’s commitment to community is apparent in its various programs for developers that include TRON Accelerator, hackathons and programming competitions, totaling up to USD 2B in rewards.

As token conversion is the most widely concerned issue among users, TRON has given its official manifesto. As the mainnet is launched, TRX will gain independence, no longer an ERC20 token as it was. There are a number of exchanges where holders can transfer conveniently their TRX into the mainnet at the fixed ratio of 1:1. Users can transact as usual while conversion is being processed.

Available exchanges include Bit-Z, Bittrex, Bitfinex, Bibox, gate.io, Binance, Coinrail, Coinnest, Bitpie, Bixin, RightBTC, DragonEx, Upbit, Bithumb, Liqui, BitKop, OKEX, CoinTiger, Huobi pro and OEX. Watch out for the continually updating list before June 25.

When the migration is completed, all TRX holders are entitled to vote in an election that yields 27 super representatives, or SR, who are somewhat like senior managers in a company. SRs have the access to book-keeping, and their duties include daily maintenance, performance optimization and boosting the ecosystem. By the time that this piece was written, more than 60 individuals or organizations from all over the world had submitted SR applications, among whom were 20+ big names like Node Capital, LinkVC, GENESIS, Next Genius, Antpool, BTCC and Top.one.

As a Java-based DApp platform, TRON is developer-friendly and promises high network performance. Over 20 star-ups have joined for various DApps including cold setup wallets and blockchain explorers for PC, web and mobile devices.

The price of TRX rose by 6%, though only for a short time, during the half hour after the launch began on May 31 (GMT+8) while it had been fluctuating around USD 0.06 on the same day.

As a matter of fact, now that Odyssey 2.0 is technologically available, its full-fledged functioning involves reaching consensus, which in turn requires coordinating the efforts of more than its 1M+ users. From the 1st to the 24th of June, the community developers will be carrying out additional tests on the Mainnet and generating consensus before the first block, also known as the Genesis Block, happens at midnight, June 25 (GMT+8).

As the momentum goes, TRON will have surprises for the blockchain community every month ahead just like the amazing six months before now.

Second Class Citizens or a False Narrative? The Non-Mining Node Debate Heats Up

Second Class Citizens or a False Narrative? The Non-Mining Node Debate Heats Up

Over the past few months, there has been an ongoing theoretical and ideological debate concerning the difference between mining nodes and non-mining nodes, and whether or not one set of nodes is more important than the other. The ongoing argument between BCH proponents and BTC supporters often leads to the node debate as to which group of nodes is stronger. The dispute has even led some BTC luminaries to state that users who don’t run a fully validating node are merely ‘second-class citizens’ in the land of cryptocurrency.

The Ongoing Debate Over the Importance of Non-Mining Nodes

Nodes. A lot of people from within the BTC and BCH camps are talking about cryptocurrency enthusiasts who swear by the importance of non-mining nodes and the discussion has leaked into other digital asset communities as well. Non-mining nodes are basically a complete record of the blockchain and some people also believe non-mining nodes enforce a cryptocurrency’s protocol rules, while others believe these groups are mere spectators.

Second Class Citizens or a False Narrative? The Non-Mining Node Debate Heats Up

Mining nodes are also considered nodes but they possess the ability to process blocks and mint new coins. Just today on the Reddit forum r/bitcoin, users argued about the fundamental difference between mining nodes and non-mining nodes. The debate showed the glaring difference of opinion between both sides of this argument.   

“Nodes do play a very important part to the system — They enforce the rules. Each person who runs a node has a ruleset they wish to follow — If enough nodes all agree to these rules they come to a consensus,” explains one commenter on the Reddit post.  

If a miner or a pool decides to break these rules of consensus within 100 blocks they will lose the mining reward. Nodes can also ban other nodes for not following the consensus too.

Nodes Do Nothing But Decide for Themselves Whether the Rules Are Observed

However, immediately after the person’s comment, another user disagreed with the statement.  

“Can an ASICs mine or generate blocks without a node?” asked the user who disagrees that non-mining nodes actually enforce rules. “No! Can a non-mining-node generate blocks? No! Who writes the chain further, if not the mining nodes? Certainly not the non-mining node — Which power decides which blocks are valid? Which power builds the other valid blocks?” the commenter continues, asking:  

The nodes do nothing but decide for themselves whether the rules are observed. If they are not met, they split off from the network and wait for valid blocks that will never come because there are no miners to generate the blocks. Or you have a mining node, then you try to generate the next valid block by yourself. Pool nodes are of course very important, but they have mining power behind them — Your raspberry pi doesn’t have any power at all.

‘Second-Class Bitcoin Citizens’

The conversation got interesting about a month ago when BTC developer Jameson Lopp tweeted a controversial statement about fully validating non-mining nodes.

“If you don’t run a fully validating node, you’re a second-class Bitcoin citizen. If you don’t hold your own private keys, you’re a third class Bitcoin citizen,” Lopp stated on March 31, 2018.

Second Class Citizens or a False Narrative? The Non-Mining Node Debate Heats Up
Jameson Lopp defending the ‘second-class Bitcoin citizen’ position on Twitter.

The tweet didn’t go over so well as it sparked a vitriolic debate about the perceived importance of non-mining nodes. One Twitter user responded to Lopp’s tweet, writing “Why bring the bs hierarchical social scale to Bitcoin? This has to be one of the most pretentious statements I’ve heard in the Bitcoin community.” But Lopp answered back by saying:

It’s not so much about social scale as it is about self-sovereignty.  

Three Powerful Misconceptions That Bolster Non-Mining Node Nonsense

On April 29, 2018, on the We Are All Satoshi network hosted by the founder of the Pirate Party, Rick Falkvinge, the host debunked the concept that cryptocurrency investors who don’t run fully validating nodes are second class, and called the statement “nonsense.” In fact, Falkvinge explained that non-mining nodes are merely “direct spectators” who can only watch the rules, not enforce them. Falkvinge says nodes that are originally described in Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper were “mining nodes.” The Pirate Party founder says that people who promote the belief that non-mining nodes are rule enforcers are being nonsensical and usually bolster “three powerful misconceptions — users without nodes are second class, nodes have network power, and nodes decentralize the network.

Second Class Citizens or a False Narrative? The Non-Mining Node Debate Heats Up
Rick Falkvinge discusses the three powerful misconceptions involved with the non-mining node discussions.

“Users without nodes are second-class citizens — No they are not, 99.999 percent of users will not be running nodes and in fact, that’s completely fine, and required for mass scale adoption,” Falkvinge explains in his video ‘Rick Reacts: The Nonsense about Bitcoin Nodes’ video. “Nodes have network power — No that’s nonsense they don’t. The network will proceed regardless of the presence or nonpresence of certain non-mining nodes — They have no influence whatsoever.”

Nodes decentralize the network — Well yes if your talking about Bangladesh goat farmers capable of renting a server, capable of gigabyte sized blocks, then you might get some decentralization. But this is used as a battering ram for hammering home the point somebody must be able to run a full node on a shitty Comcast connection — which is just atrocious — these three statements are all false narratives.

The non-mining node debate has become a very contentious conversation among cryptocurrency advocates and the argument is discussed regularly on forums and social media these days. The non-mining node discussion is now at the heart of the ongoing scaling debate that seems to never end.

Bitgrail Exchange Ordered Down Indefinitely as Italian Court Upholds Halt

Bitgrail Exchange Ordered Down Indefinitely as Italian Court Upholds Halt

Earlier this month, Bitgrail’s principal Franceso Firano attempted to reopen the Italian cryptocurrency exchange after $170 million in losses and during their legal sorting out. An inside job or software hack, that hasn’t had an official determination, and fingers are still pointing between the exchange’s charismatic operator and crypto devs. International heavy law firm Bonelli Erede effectively petitioned to have the exchange remain offline, instituting bankruptcy proceedings, and the Court of Florence recently agreed.

Bitgrail Shuttered by Court of Florence

“This morning,” a post on the exchange’s website read earlier this month, “following the re-opening, we were notified of a deed by the court of Florence requesting the immediate closure of Bitgrail and this situation will persist until a decision is made by the courts, about the precautionary suspension request made by the Bonelli law office on behalf of a client […] Even though we don’t agree with this decision, we are obliged to respect the law and to suspend any Bitgrail business immediately.”

This week the court indeed made a decision.

Bitgrail Exchange Ordered Down Indefinitely as Italian Court Upholds Halt

“We have temporarily disabled the Bitgrail exchange pending further notice,” came what appears to be a rather final Tweet from, presumably, the embattled exchange operator Franceso Firano on May 2nd. It’s what remains of communication since an injunction was filed to prevent Mr. Firano from reopening. The exchange was halted, temporarily, and that decision was formally upheld as bankruptcy proceedings loom.

Representing more than 3,000 exchange complainants is the international firm Bonelli Erede. Its team is a veritable who-is-who of Italian legal pros: Partner Monica Iacoviello, Giuseppe Sbisà, with assistance from senior associates Gianpaolo Ciervo and Alessandra Frigerio. Nano user and Foundation coordinator Espen Enger has also contributed to efforts.

Bonelli Erede is a two-decades old consortium of sorts, formed from successful firms responding to merger and acquisition pressure at the present century’s turn. The result is a legal powerhouse of over 400 lawyers, half a dozen offices scattered throughout Europe, and revenues of something like €150 million.

Uphill Battle, Especially for Exchange Users

And so it is Mr. Firano facing a colossal uphill battle that might very well be moot at the time of publication. Bitgrail could be relegated to so much toast, burnt … done. It doesn’t help that Mr. Firano, once known as “The Bomber” for his outbursts and ribald commentary, has been radio silent since the beginning of May.

The tone early that day weeks ago was one of optimism, as Mr. Firano floated ways to attempt making looted users whole. The then-latest scheme involved opening the exchange to generate the requisite revenue. And so he attempted to open, announcing he was “pleased to announce the re-open of our exchange! Given the probable overload of servers, it is possible that in the first hours there may be slowdowns in the functionality of the site.”

Bitgrail Exchange Ordered Down Indefinitely as Italian Court Upholds Halt

Mere hours later, the opening was halted pending a more definitive hearing. The Court of Florence in recently upholding that initial stoppage has frozen all assets, tipping off formal bankruptcy proceedings. Typically trustees are appointed to look over books and accounts, and then whatever remains is divvied up according to creditors, victims, etc. The process could take years and yield pennies on the dollar returns. So far, no criminal charges have been filed.

All this suggests Mr. Firano being pushed out, along with his proposals for a new crypto and to have devs roll back the blockchain. The Nano Foundation insists losses were the result of bugs on the exchange side of things, and the Nano project will soldier on.  

Is formal bankruptcy the correct remedy here? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

“Everybody’s been excited about ‘bcash’ for quite a while,” Roger Ver (CEO of Bitcoin.com) smiled and giggled with joy at the delicious irony. “So, it’s finally here everybody!” A very relaxed Mr. Ver has taken to making weekly videos, highlighting his work within the bitcoin cash community. He was prompted to laughter by Yours.org co-founder and CEO Ryan X. Charles, joining Mr. Ver for a one-off video recently. Both men were in the glow of Antiguan entrepreneur and Coin Geek owner Calvin Ayre’s latest Hong Kong conference. Overlooking Victoria Harbour, viewers soon notice there’s a third presence in the background. Turns out, the famous International Commerce Centre building in West Kowloon, all 1,587.9 feet of it, can be seen during its LED light show.

Roger Ver and Ryan X. Charles Reveal the Future of Cash

They were laughing at the name Purse.io chose for its latest product, bcash. When trolls wish to hector bitcoin cash supporters they often employ the name. Well, the two CEOs remarked gleefully, now the association has a real use case. It’s a fork of bcoin, a full node implementation, and both agreed they’d be employing the innovation. The Purse.io adventure parallels the ecosystem’s, as viewers come to find out. Mr. Charles prompts Mr. Ver into expanding on just why Mr. Ver was such a heavy proponent and user of the tech.

Mr. Ver explained how he used Purse.io for a great many business transactions, for nearly everything. When bitcoin core (BTC) fees became untenable for transactions, he left the service altogether, cashing out his remaining BTC for bitcoin cash (BCH). With Purse.io continuing to innovate and adapt, accepting BCH and offering a handy 15% discount on Amazon purchases, Mr. Ver happily encouraged viewers to return to the service. And indeed there does seem to be a resurgence in so-called micropayment tech, as more and more businesses transition to BCH.

Fast and Furious

Mr. Charles then raves about Openbazaar’s move into decentralized cryptocurrency exchange, a very big deal in the community. Traditional exchanges ask quite a lot of potential users, with frictions in onboarding and withdrawal, not to mention invasive personal questions. They’ve long gone against a basic aspect of crypto philosophy. Mr. Ver explained the store at Bitcoin.com will also sell its goods and services on Openbazzar.

Roger Ver and Ryan X. Charles Reveal the Future of Cash

Continuing on the micropayment innovations, both praised Mr. Charles’ latest project, the Money Button. The days-old tech is a spin on Yours.org’s BCH micropayment social media concept. Mr. Charles’ content providers asked for an API usable on their own proprietary websites; a money button, if you will, for the internet. The Yours.org CEO describes the Money Button as similar to pressing Like on Facebook. The prototype looks to be pretty amazing and transformative if the tech holds up: imagine every site surfed, readers and viewers had the ability to tip in fractions of BCH as a show of appreciation. Mr. Charles is careful to stress it is still not ready for large scale deployment, but he does want folks to give it a try over the next two months in the hopes of gaining feedback and working out bugs.

These are just some of the forward-looking subjects the two shared. Celebrating the ‘Pizza Anniversary,’ Marco Coino app, shout out to those protesting on behalf of a bitcoiner being charged for ridiculous crimes, more Lightning Network folly, decentralized crowdfunding through Lighthouse, Twitter censorship games, Memo.cash, Blockpress.com, and, of course, the 32MB Bitcoin Cash upgrade and OP codes. For those wishing to keep up with the ongoings of bitcoin cash, whose innovations are coming fast and furious, or are just curious about the digital currency. Roger Ver and Ryan X. Charles are arguably the best ambassadors around. No word if the two plan further collabs in the video sense, but Mr. Ver did stress future shows will include a displayed key which Bitcoin.com Wallet holders will be able to scan for free BCH!

Bitcoin in Brief Saturday: Warren Warned By Billboards, Coinbase Tempted by Banking

Bitcoin in Brief Saturday: Warren Warned By Billboards, Coinbase Tempted by Banking

In Bitcoin in Brief today, billionaire Warren Buffett has been reminded that he was wrong about Google and Amazon, and told he might be wrong about bitcoin, too. Billboards have appeared outside his office to convey the message of the crypto community. Also, a report suggests that the US cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase may apply for a banking license. Some conflicting views on the future of the Internet and its money complete Saturday’s roundup.

“Warren: Maybe You’re Wrong About Bitcoin?”

Bitcoin in Brief Saturday: Warren Warned By Billboards, Coinbase Tempted by BankingBillionaire investor Warren Buffett, known for his negative attitude towards cryptocurrencies, has been targeted in a bitcoin advocacy campaign lead by one of the largest cloud mining companies. Genesis Mining has recently posted billboards in front of Buffett’s office reminding him that he was wrong about Google and Amazon, and telling him that he may very well be wrong about bitcoin, as well.

The initiative has received a lot of support from the crypto community on social media. Genesis co-founder Marco Krohn posted on Twitter photos of the message to the investment guru with a short note saying: “Some new billboards outside of Warren Buffetts office! :)”

Earlier this month, the American business magnate issued another warning in regards to bitcoin and the like. “Cryptocurrencies will come to a bad ending,” he said during the annual Berkshire Hathaway’s shareholder meeting, but he didn’t stop there. “If I could buy a five-year put on every one of the cryptocurrencies, I’d be glad to do it but I would never short a dime’s worth,” he said, concluding that bitcoin is “probably rat poison squared.” Needless to say, Buffett’s comments provoked reactions and even inspired new business ideas. A tokenized marketplace called Ecoinmerce has announced the “Rat Poison Squared clothing line.” Т-shirts and hats are already offered online, but one can also order a mug with the winged phrase.

The Money of the Internet and the Internet of Money

Square CEO Jack Dorsey has recently reiterated his views about bitcoin. “The internet is going to have a native currency, so let’s not wait for it to happen, let’s help it happen,” he said during a blockchain conference, adding: “I don’t know if it will be bitcoin but I hope it will be.” Dorsey, who is also the chief executive of Twitter, wants his payment processing company to be at the forefront of the efforts to achieve adoption of cryptocurrencies as global means of payment. In an interview in March, he predicted that there will be a single world currency in the next ten years. The billionaire believes that will be bitcoin, although he admits the cryptocurrency is still slow and costly.

Bitcoin in Brief Saturday: Warren Warned By Billboards, Coinbase Tempted by Banking

Circle co-founder and President Sean Neville, however, has a different vision of what’s to come for the digital space and the digital currencies. “Very excited about the idea of reimagining what global finance can be,” he says that a dollar token is the future of the Internet of money. “One of the things that’s interesting for us is how we take fiat money and put in on blockchains, how do we get the benefits of a public blockchain infrastructure, which might underpin something like HTTPS of money,” he told Bloomberg.

Neville thinks there is a problem with using existing crypto assets for payments and settlements – they are very volatile. “So, it makes sense to have something like the US dollar represented as a token that can transfer anywhere in the world, to any digital wallet and any exchange that can support it,” he explained. Sean Neville, whose company raised $110Mn USD in a fundraising round led by Chinese giant Bitmain, believes that “we need a replacement for SWIFT.” He also predicted that eventually everything of value will be tokenized in a “hybrid world” of centralized and decentralized services. Boston based Circle has announced plans to issue a dollar-backed cryptocurrency called USD-C.

Coinbase May Apply for a Banking License

Bitcoin in Brief Saturday: Warren Warned By Billboards, Coinbase Tempted by BankingBy attracting some serious investments, Circle has actually joined the club of the most well-funded cryptocurrency companies. Another of its members, Coinbase, seems tempted to expand its financial business to include banking services. According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, representatives of the crypto brokerage have met with US regulators to talk about the possibility to apply for a banking license.

A source quoted by the WSJ has revealed, that the company, which operates the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the United States, has contacted officials from the US Office of the Comptroller of Currency earlier this year to discuss the matter. Beside the opportunity to broaden the types of products it offers, a banking license would allow Coinbase to operate without the need to partner with banks.

I Hope Bitcoin Will Be Internet’s ‘Native Currency’: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey

Jack Dorsey — CEO of both Twitter and Square — hopes that bitcoin will one day be the internet’s native currency. Dorsey made this statement during an interview with Elizabeth Stark of Lightning Labs at a fireside chat today at the Consensus 2018 conference in New York. Dorsey revealed that grew up in St. Louis, MI

World’s Second Largest Search Engine Bans Crypto Ads

World’s Second Largest Search Engine Bans Crypto Ads

Melissa Alsoszatai-Petheo, of Microsoft’s Bing search engine, announced its advertising arm is banning all cryptocurrency advertisements. This follows market leaders such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter either severely restricting crypto ads or banning them altogether.

Microsoft’s Bing Search Engine Bans Crypto Ads

Advertiser Policy Manager, Melissa Alsoszatai-Petheo, posted an update to Microsoft’s Bing search engine ad policy. Bing Ads to Disallow Cryptocurrency Advertising is the title of the company’s rather obvious move. “We are always evaluating our policies to ensure a safe and engaging experience for our Bing users and the digital advertising ecosystem,” Ms. Alsoszatai-Petheo began. “Because cryptocurrency and related products are not regulated, we have found them to present a possible elevated risk to our users with the potential for bad actors to participate in predatory behaviors, or otherwise scam consumers.”

World’s Second Largest Search Engine Bans Crypto Ads

Bing has consistently ranked a very distant second behind the Google juggernaut, which gobbles up better than 60% of search traffic on the internet. Google at the beginning of 2018 announced a far more specific series of cryptocurrency related prohibitions, down to defining contract for difference (CFDs) products.

It wasn’t too much later when Facebook followed, as we reported at the end of January, with “a new ruling issued on January 30, ‘ads must not promote financial products and services that are frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices, such as binary options, initial coin offerings, or cryptocurrency.’” Twitter too, a mere two months later, presented its new advertising policy, severely restricting initial coin offering (ICOs) and token sales.

Protection is the Pretext

“To help protect our users from this risk,” the notice from Bing continued, “we have made the decision to disallow advertising for cryptocurrency, cryptocurrency related products, and un-regulated binary options. Bing Ads will implement this change to our financial product and services policy globally in June, with enforcement rolling out in late June to early July.”

Other than seeking a press cycle of promotion, it does appear “scams” were a bit of a problem during 2017, according to Bing’s annual report. “Tech scams are widely used by bad actors and we rejected 25 million ads in this category in 2017,” they insisted. And under the banner of misleading ads, Bing noted how last “year, we took down 30 million such ads, 20,000 such websites and 43,500 bad actors.”

Richard Branson Speaks Out Against Fake Bitcoin Stories and Scams

Richard Branson Speaks Out Against Fake Bitcoin Stories and Scams

British entrepreneur Richard Branson has spoken out over the “worrying” spread of bitcoin scam stories and ads. Some of the most common are false endorsements and fake binary trading schemes, he warns. Advising everyone to remain vigilant, Branson suggests that users should report fake stories to the platforms which have published them.

Billionaire Linked To “Get-Rich-Quick” Schemes

Virgin Group founder, Sir Richard Branson, has voiced his concerns over the “worrying” rise in bitcoin-related online scams involving his name. “I have written several times warning people about the growing problem of fake stories online linking me to get-rich-quick schemes, fake pages, misleading ads, false endorsements, and fake binary trading schemes,” he says in a blog post titled “Beware of Fake Bitcoin Scams.”

Richard Branson Speaks Out Against Fake Bitcoin Stories and ScamsSome of the most regular and worrying fake stories currently spreading online are false endorsements of bitcoin trading schemes, Branson explains in the piece published on Virgin’s corporate website. “While I have often commented on the potential benefits of genuine bitcoin developments, I absolutely do not endorse these fake bitcoin stories,” he states.

Branson also notes that the fake articles often have titles involving “quitting your job and yours truly investing in bitcoin financial tech”. The sites which publish them impersonate well known news outlets, such as CNN, to make them look legitimate, he warns.

“You may come across these sites via links advertised on various social media sites and paid for ads. They link through to scam sites like Bitcoin Trader, and also feature fake endorsements by the likes of Bill Gates alongside myself,” Richard Branson complains.

Sir Branson Advises Vigilance

The British magnate informs his readers that his legal teams are working hard to take down the fake stories and deal with companies misrepresenting him and his businesses. “In the last year we’ve dealt with hundreds of instances. We are doing all we can and the police also work tirelessly to shut down the major operations,” he says.

Branson’s Lawyers have also contacted the social networks where the fake stories are being spread: “[We] urge them to take the stories down and do more to proactively stop them appearing in the first place.”

Richard Branson is not alone in this effort. Recently, British personal finance guru Martin Lewis vowed to take Facebook to court over fake ads featuring his photo, which have published on its platform. He accused the popular social media site of lack of vigilance in regards to fake accounts and adverts from scammers.

Richard Branson Speaks Out Against Fake Bitcoin Stories and Scams

In his post, Branson advises everyone to remain vigilant: “Check you are only clicking through to legitimate sites, with official website addresses and verified social media accounts.” He also suggests that people verify if the story about him they are reading originates from an official Virgin website.

“All of my social networks are verified with blue ticks, so you can tell it is really me communicating with you,” he adds, posting links to his profiles. The entrepreneur recommends reading sources like Citizens Advice for tips on how to avoid online scams. He also urges users to report fake stories to the platforms where they have found them.

Richard Branson Speaks Out Against Fake Bitcoin Stories and ScamsSince the beginning of the year, the social networks Facebook and LinkedIn, the search engines Google and “Яндекс” (Yandex), and the microblogging platform Twitter have banned advertising of cryptocurrencies and related projects on their platforms.

Representatives of crypto communities around the world have protested the measures claiming they hurt legitimate businesses. Crypto and blockchain associations and businesses from Russia, China, South Korea, Switzerland, Kazakhstan, and Armenia plan to file this month a class action lawsuit against internet corporations over banned crypto ads.

What measures should social media networks take to prevent spreading fake stories and scams related to Bitcoin without hurting legitimate businesses? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
