Litecoin se utiliza como el puente salvavidas para los inversores en el último día del primer semestre (Criptotendencia)

Image
El mercado criptográfico ha presentado una fuerte corrección de precios debido a que su principal activo, Bitcoin no logró mantenerse por encima del nivel de los 12k y el FOMO insinuante alrededor generó una salida de flujo de capital que ha desangrado a las principales criptomonedas del ecosistema,con BTC cayendo un 1,18 por ciento a niveles de 11200 en tan sólo cinco minutos.Al momento de redactar el MarketCap se encuentra ubicado por el orden de los $334 billones de dólares con BTC dominando la escena en un promedio del 61,9 por ciento y un volumen diario que ha descendido hasta los $86 billones diarios.Como en otras oportunidades, el flujo de capital se ha dirigido de BTC hacia altcoins específicos para hacer capital por parte de las llamadas WHALES en el ecosistema cripto, con su criptomoneda favorita como es Litecoin, la cripto plateada que funge numerosas veces como salvavidas para los inversores y trampolín de hacer capital para poder inundar y bombear luego el mercado de Bitc…

Deep Neural Network Creates Surprisingly Accurate Simulations of the Universe (The Merkle)

Image
It is baffling what one can achieve with artificial intelligence. Ranging from mundane tasks to major scientific research, the possibilities are virtually limitless. One interesting development comes in the form of how a new 3D simulation of the universe turns out to be far more accurate than anything humans ever put together. Oddly enough, the creators of this AI have no idea why that is the case. AI Becomes Smarter Than ExpectedOne of the biggest fears among scientists is how artificial intelligence will eventually become smarter than its creators. On paper, such a scenario seems unlikely, although nothing is impossible in the world of science either. It is seemingly a matter of time until AI surprises the entire world in such a manner things may never be reverted back to normal. Depending on where one tends to look, such a development might have taken place already. To be more specific, a recent trial involving neural networks yielded surprising results. The network, known as the d…

Binance displays prices in INR, even as Indian exchange bites the dust (AMBCrypto)

Ask HN: What do you do on an Android phone that cannot be done on an iPhone?

Not trying to start a flame war. I am finally switching away from my trusty Nokia Lumia 920 because the browser wouldn't load m.uber.com and WhatsApp says app will be gone at the end of the year. I like the snappiness of Windows Phone and iPhone UI. Haven't checked Android phones recently but years ago the UI was laggy and no one except I seem to notice. Also know that sideloading apps, blocking ads in apps etc. is much easier on Android so I am hard pressed to decide between the two.

FMI considera que los Bancos Centrales podrán emitir sus propias monedas digitales en el futuro (Criptotendencia)

Image
Aunque casi desde el momento de la a aparición de las criptomonedas, las entidades financieras tradicionales, como los Bancos Centrales, han hecho todos sus esfuerzos para lograr desacreditarlas, actualmente la gran mayoría se ha dado cuenta que, debido a su crecimiento y popularidad, es necesario tolerarlas.Sin embargo, el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI) considera que en el futuro, los Bancos Centrales harán algo más que simplemente soportar su existencia, sino que emitirán sus propias monedas digitales.El pasado 27 de junio, el FMI publicó un informe en el cual, en conjunto al Banco Mundial, se realizó una encuesta sobre la industria fintech a las entidades financieras tradicionales, basando sus resultados en 96 respuestas recibidas.Para a sorpresa de muchos, los resultados arrojaron que la mayoría de los Bancos Centrales están considerando lanzar su propia moneda de Banco Central (CBDC, por sus siglas en inglés).

Crypto Hardware Review: Meet The Sleek Gray Corazon Titanium (Newsbtc)

Image
A week or two back, I got an unsolicited message on Twitter, Crypto Twitter if you will. When the private message opened, I was greeted by a note from GRAY®, a Singapore-based company focused on luxury-centric hardware.To my surprise, their chief executive, Kevin Wu, was offering to send me one of their latest products — The Corazon Titanium, their play on cryptocurrency hardware that took heavy inspiration from the Trezor Model T, one of the top security solutions for Bitcoin “HODLers”. As I explained to my editor at NewsBTC, “the Corazon is pretty much a specced out Trezor T”.In fact, the Titanium and others in the Corazon lineup were purportedly created in collaboration with Trezor, a well-known, long-standing crypto upstart.By the time I took a look at GRAY®’s website, my curiosity piqued, so I accepted the kind gift, and here I am reviewing it a few weeks later.

Bitcoin’s combined trading volume crosses $3 billion on popular exchanges, on the back of ATH record (AMBCrypto)

The past few weeks have been spectacular for Bitcoin, with its price surge accompanied by major increases in market cap and market volume. While holders of the cryptocurrency were waiting expectantly for it to break the $13,000 mark, the king coin was setting different records in other areas as well.

BEWARE of spend.com until further updates (Reddit Bitcoin)

Since I've joined spend.com, I have had many regrets thus far as well as outstanding issues that have NOT been resolved:In the USA, you CANNOT withdraw funds to bank, yet the functionality exists and the wallet gives off the impression that the withdrawal has been initiated. The first time I tried to withdraw, low and behold nothing happened. I reached out to the support team who informed me that this functionality isn't working yet for the US, and therefore proceeded to undo all of the pending transactions. Not cool because guess what, I paid the fee to transfer the crypto to USD value and its quite a hefty fee when you are talking about over 10K USD. Oh by the way, I paid shit ton's of fees to convert the BTC and ETH to USD wallet, and the developer just gave me the crypto back, but ofc did not even bother to address the fee aspect of things. (I am splitting hairs...but yea...guys that's alot of lost fees as well!) Oh and guess what, If I never bothered to ask about …

Space Holds The Key to The Bitcoin (BTC) Moon Mission: Flipping Gold (Newsbtc)

Space might be the final frontier, but it also might end up being the final showdown between crypto asset Bitcoin and the precious metal and chemical element known as gold. In a wild story that sounds like it was ripped from the pages of science fiction novels, NASA is planning a space mission to an asteroid comprised of previous metals – such as gold – to conduct extensive scientific research that could uncover the viability of mining the astroid for the supposed over $10 quadrillion worth it contains.While such an event is many years away, if asteroid mining companies are able to tap into the golden goose of a rock, it could considerably throw off the supply of gold, rendering it virtually worthless. Such an event would also propel Bitcoin significantly, and really highlight the importance of its hard-coded digital scarcity compared to the perceived scarcity of its physical counterpart.NASA Plans 2022 Mission to Explore Gold-Filled Asteroid Psyche 16The National Aeronautics and Spac…

Exchange Bitsane desaparece con millones robados en cryptos (Criptotendencia)

Las campanas de la estafa en el mundo de las criptomonedas parece que no dejan de sonar, y en pleno ruedo alcista cuando el FOMO está al máximo muchos aprovechan para hacer de las suyas y obtener dinero fácil a cuesta de las personas.En esta oportunidad le tocó el turno a los usuarios del exchange Bitsane.

Analyst: Bitcoin is Still in a Clear Uptrend Despite Recent Crash; is a Move Towards $20k Imminent? (Newsbtc)

Image
Bitcoin has once again been caught in the throes of massive volatility, experiencing a parabolic price surge yesterday before plunging over 20%. This price action has led many investors to quickly flip bearish on BTC, but a bullish response to its latest drop could lead it significantly higher.Analysts are now noting that Bitcoin is still caught in a firm uptrend in spite of this recent volatility, which likely signals that it will continue climbing higher in the near-future.Bitcoin Begins Climbing After Finding Support in $10,000 RegionAt the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up over 4% at its current price of $11,850. BTC’s latest move upwards signals that the cryptocurrency does have support in the $10,000 region, which likely signals that it will continue to extend its upwards momentum in the short-term.Importantly, BTC is still up significantly over a one-month period, surging from lows of $7,500 to its recently established highs of just below $14,000.So, while zooming out and …

Two Former Dream Market Vendors Identified due to Using Online Postage Services (The Merkle)

Anyone who has ever heard of thedarknetwill know most vendors will get arrested sooner or later. This situation will not change either, as more and more law enforcement agencies are focusing their efforts on bringing these criminals to justice. It would appear two former Dream Market vendors finally met their demise albeit not necessarily for reasons one would come to expect. Postage Purchases Unmask Darknet VendorsOne thing most people tend to overlook is how darknet vendors need to ship packages to their clients in an anonymous manner. Most of these shipments are sent through regular air mail, simply in the hopes to avoid any random screenings. While that might be a successful approach, it can also come back to haunt vendors sooner or later. Two former Dream Market vendors have found this out first hand. To put this into perspective, these two individuals allegedly sold fake Adderall on the popular darknet marketplace, which has not shut down. It is believed their sales volume surpa…

Novogratz nos da un rango para el precio de Bitcoin: $10.000 – $14.000 (Criptotendencia)

Como hemos podido observar los últimos días, Bitcoin ha poseído una volatilidad comparable a los eventos ocurridos en 2017, pero con ciertos aires del 2018, dado que en un mismo día puedes tener un crecimiento del 20% en la mañana, y en la noche una caída de 20% del nuevo valor.Sin embargo, el famoso entusiasta del criptomercado Mike Novogratz, basado en su análisis con respecto a la situación, nos expone sus predicciones para el precio de BTC, con un estimado de un rango entre $10.000 y $14.000.Emitiendo sus comentarios en el programa Squawk Box de CNBC, Novogratz pronosticó que la moneda digital líder se consolidará en el rango expuesto anteriormente, explicando que se basa en los recientes eventos con respecto al criptomercado, como el lanzamiento de Libra y la falla de Coinbase. Refiriéndose a la entrada de Facebook en Crypto con Libra, Novogratz dijo:“Una de las compañías más grandes del mundo dijo que creemos en las criptomonedas.
