Do bitcoin gamblers really need an easier way to spend their winnings? "Cryptocurrencies can go down as well as up." You have to scroll to the very bottom of the latest hot new cryptocurrency venture's website to find this statement of the obvious. The London Block Exchange -- because no regulated public market is safe from crypto puns -- offers fans of bitcoin, ethereum and the like a chance to trade crypto on an app and then convert any winnings into pounds anywhere that accepts Visa. The app's payment card handles the conversion instantly. It isn't the only venture hoping to make it easier for speculators to spend their winnings in the real economy. Payments firm Square is letting some users buy bitcoin on its Square Cash app, which recently rolled out its own payment card. Currency app Revolut is reportedly working on a solution that may have involve a paymentcard, according to Business Insider. Rather than do the heavy lifting of persuading merchants to accept bitcoin or convert it through an intermediary, the effort is now entirely on wooing consumers. How could they resist? Slick marketing, the tease of technological innovation and the lure of uncapped gains are democratizing a very human urge to gamble.

Bitcoin Platinum Is A Fraud Made By Teenager

Bitcoin Platinum Is A Fraud Made By Teenager

Bitcoin Platinum is a fraud made by teenager Bitcoin Platinum is a fraud made by teenager 12 December 2017 | in Altcoin | in Altcoin |318 An entertaining example of the market manipulation has lately become known to public. According to the cryptocurrency media, a South Korean teenager tried to decrease the price of Bitcoin by creating a fake cryptocurrency project called Bitcoin Platinum. To do so, he started to publish posts from the @bitcoinplatinum Twitter account with promises about the HF (hard fork) starting after block 498,577. This fraudster also created a GitHub account where he posted promotional materials instead of actual source code of the cryptocurrency. The future shines brightly with permissionless innovation, which is going to benefit merchants and users, told one of such materials. But realizing his project was failing, because the community pointed out the vagueness of both the dev team and technology, the fraudster started to write in Korean informally in the same Twitter account. In one of such tweets in Korean he admitted the whole project is a scam to get five million korean von ($4,590). The information about the scammer being a teenager comes from the local media , but sadly, no photo has been provided. Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Platinum Turns Out To Bescam

Bitcoin Platinum Turns Out To Bescam

Blockchain Researcher at Columbia University | Co-Founder of Chain Intelligence | Computer Science PhD Candidate | It was exposed that a Korean high school student fraudulently led the new upcoming hard fork on the Bitcoin blockchain called Bitcoin Platinum, unsettling a lot of Korean investors as well as international investors. The story goes as follows. There have been multiple forks on the Bitcoin blockchain already at this point, including the notorious Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, and Bitcoin Diamond. The new supposed fork, Bitcoin Platinum grabbed a lot of Korean investors attention, as it was allegedly the first major Bitcoin fork led by a Korean mining pool. On top of that, it was promised that big Korean exchanges like Bithumb were to support it. While the fork was scheduled to occur on Dec. 10th at block height 498533, a tweet from Bitcoin Platinum abruptly announced that they had to change the forking block height from 498533 to 500000 due to some critical technical issues. The problem is what happened next: a sudden series of tweets that were written in Korean rather than English. The tweets contained content not only unrelated to Bitcoin Platinum, but also baffling and informal (somewhat gibberish) in nature. The second comment above, for instance, roughly translates: Who told you to buy Bitcoin anyways? Shortit! The dubious tweets (now deleted) quickly spread throughout the Korean online forums and media, and eventually people pressed and debunked the fraudulent nature of Bitcoin Platinum in the first place. A lot of Korean investors were startled, as they were purchasing a lot of Bitcoin in the hope that theyd receive a certain number of Bitcoin Platinum corresponding to their number of Bitcoin at a 1:1 ratio. Translates: Im really sorry, please forgive Continue reading >>

Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold And Now Bitcoin Platinum (btp)

Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold And Now Bitcoin Platinum (btp)

Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold and now Bitcoin Platinum (BTP) Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold and now Bitcoin Platinum (BTP) So far the launch of Bitcoin Gold (BTG) has been considered a failure . Devs pre-mining coins, failed pools, diverted hashing and yet if you got in early you still could have made a profit by trading out of BTG in the first 24-48 hours after launch and are still up if you held from launch. At this point another fork of Bitcoin doesnt surprise anyone who follows cryptocurrency news. Today we now get word of another Bitcoin derivative coin coming to market which hopes to go right where Bitcoin Gold went so wrong. Dubbed Bitcoin Platinum (BTP) this coin will be a hard fork of the BTG blockchain. It differs from BTG with no pre-mine by the developers and the integration from launch of SegWit2X the long debated possible future addition coming to the Bitcoin blockchain. Bitcoin Platinum is a fork of Bitcoin Gold with Segwit2X Bitcoin Platinum (@BTCPLT) November 17, 2017 No pre-mine is important. Pre-mine occurs when a developer opens the block chain to mining prior to the public. As initial mining is very low difficulty many coins can be mined quite easily before public mining begins. Some developers choose to announce pre-mines and some do not. A pre-mine also allows a developer to dump coins once added to exchanges and can lead to downward pressure on a coins value. This may be what has pushed down BTG following launch. SegWit2X is meant to increase the number of transactions available on a blockchain allowing for scalability as acceptance of a coin increases. It is well known in the Bitcoin world that scalability is a limiting factor in the current code and has created this debate about implementation of SegWit and SegWit2X. So far little i Continue reading >>

Announcing: Bitcoin Platinum - A Revolutionary Evolution Of Bitcoin. - Cryptocurrency

Announcing: Bitcoin Platinum - A revolutionary evolution of Bitcoin. Hello fellow bitcoin hodlers! After many years of dissecting Bitcoin's code and hiring a top team of engineers (to be paid with BTP only) we are announcing the latest in blockchain innovation: Get ready for that moon lambo! We are currently working to get all of our ducks in a row, but there are a few links I can provide you with to get you more familiar with this life changing Bitcoin adaptation. Although this is the Bitcoin Gold codebase, we plan to fork it once they figure out all of their issues and then we'll just probably add nothing else to it. Again, this is the Bitcoin Gold website but we plan to create a new website by just copying their code. Our top engineer has told us that replacing every instance of "Gold" with "Platinum" in the codebase will be a very complicated process, so to ease this transition we have our entire team working on a Google Chrome plugin that will replace the word "Gold" with "Platinum." Unfortunately, due to our team generally solving much harder problems, they are not familiar with how to scope this to our website and the word "Gold" will be replaced on all websites you visit. We plan to release an Internet Explorer toolbar in the near future as well, but we will not be developing for FireFox because this isn't the 2000's. I can't wait to launch this endeavor with this wonderful community. We're so close and we want to share with you that we will be forking from the main blockchain at 00:00 UTC on October 28th!!!

Bitcoin Platinum Created By South Korean Teenager As A Scam, Local Market Erupts

Bitcoin Platinum Created By South Korean Teenager As A Scam, Local Market Erupts

Bitcoin Platinum Created By South Korean Teenager As a Scam, Local Market Erupts Investors in local cryptocurrency exchange market are outraged over Bitcoin Platinum, an alleged scam created by a South Korean teenager. According to JoongAng, South Koreas largest mainstream media outlet, investors in the local cryptocurrency exchange market are outraged over Bitcoin Platinum, an alleged scam created by a South Korean teenager. The Twitter handle @bitcoinplatinum, the official account of the Bitcoin Platinum project has advertised the project, as a hard fork of the Bitcoin Blockchain. Earlier this month, the creator of Bitcoin Platinum claimed that a group of miners, developers, investors and Bitcoin users will hard fork the Bitcoin protocol at block 498,577. However,the Twitter account has not provided the public with any information about supporters, developers, investors and/or miners. Even before this most recent incident that set offthe South Korean Bitcoin community, investors remained highly skeptical of the project given its vague description and vision. Bitcoin Platinum claimed to achieve Satoshis original vision of Bitcoin as decentralized electronic cash, copying the vision of Bitcoin Cash. Adding to the skepticism, the Bitcoin Platinum account has not offered any additional information apart from PR gibberish. One statement from Bitcoin Platinum read : Bitcoin Platinum brings true Blockchain ledger to the world. Merchants and users are empowered with low fees and reliable confirmations. The future shines brightly with unrestricted growth, global adoption, permissionless innovation and decentralized development. Earlier today, on Dec. 10, after releasing all of the statements in English since the first week of November, the Bitcoin Platinum Twitter account hol Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Platinum Faces Scam Allegations

Bitcoin Platinum Faces Scam Allegations

Bitcoin users all over the world are very waryof newly airdropped currencies. Although Bitcoin Cash has proven to be a success, people have been showing far less interest in Bitcoin Gold. It now turns out Bitcoin Platinum may face a lot more scrutiny than either of those forks ever did. Itwas seemingly created by a South Korean teenager and is a pure scam.Its not as if anyone expectedanything different, but its good to see confirmation on this front. Every time someone decides to create a Bitcoin hard fork , there is a very real chance the project will turn into a money grab sooner or later.Particularlyat a timewhen allnew Bitcoin hard forkshave very similar features, thingshave gotten even more confusing and worrisome. Bitcoin Platinum is the first of these forks tohave essentiallyfallenapart before it even became a thing. No one will be surprised by this development, as there was virtually no interest in this project from day one. It is not all that difficult to copy working code, change the name, and turn it into something brand new. This is exactly what happens with most smaller altcoins right now, asthe majority are copies of existing projects which may or may not introduce additional functionality over time. In most cases, projects are abandoned pretty quickly, leaving holders of the coin hanging. There is plenty of money to be made by creating altcoins and dumping them on the open marketshortly afterward. Bitcoin Platinum serves asfurther confirmation that investors need to be very wary of Bitcoin forks yet to be released. Bitcoin God is one of those projects which has yet to launch, although no one knows for sure ifthat is a joke or not. There are some other forks on the horizon as well, although it is doubtful any of them will amount to anything. Bitcoin Plati Continue reading >>

Fork Me Once... 'super Bitcoin' And 'bitcoin Platinum' Among 5 New Hard Forks

Fork Me Once... 'super Bitcoin' And 'bitcoin Platinum' Among 5 New Hard Forks

Bitcoin holders will meet at least three new hard forks in December as the success of Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold spawns a host of trailblazers. Two more forks are slated to occur but do not yet have a block at which they will split from the Bitcoin core chain, while another, Bitcoin Diamond, has already done so and has futures trading around $50. A summary of the forthcoming network snapshots, which could all potentially deliver free money to BTC holders, appeared on Twitter Thursday. So-called Super Bitcoin should spark at block 498,888 around December 15, while Bitcoin Platinum and the even more bizarre Bitcoin Cash Plus will get their network blueprints December 23 and 31 respectively. Bitcoin Uranium and the previously signaled Bitcoin Silver still have yet to reveal their intended snapshot dates. Is This The Dawn Of The Initial Fork Offering? Bitcoin holders and the wider industry remain in two minds over the most recent phenomenon to hit cryptocurrency. As ICO Mania appears to be waning , the concept of Bitcoin Fork Mania continues the trend of creating value out of nothing, based on a mixed bag of technological value. Despite the comparative health of extant forks Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold , a clear narrative is visible where new projects gain support solely with the intention of profiting from duplicate BTC balances. Welcome to the world of initial fork offerings, one response to the December release calendar reads. The prospective forks longer-term plans meanwhile remain vague. Super Bitcoin, which has claimed the slogan Make Bitcoin Great Again, promises a block size expansion to 8MB as well as the all-important free balance duplication. The past 3 year-competition of the Bitcoins capacity expansion has prevented its development. We have lost a large m Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Platinum - Make Bitcoin Decentralized Again

Bitcoin Platinum - Make Bitcoin Decentralized Again

Bitcoin Platinum - Make Bitcoin Decentralized Again Bitcoin Platinum implements a new PoW algorithm, Equihash, that makes mining decentralized again. Special computer hardware designed for BTC mining (ASICs) is obsolete for mining BTP, giving ordinary users a chance to mine with ubiquitous GPUs. A hard fork of Bitcoin is the most fair and efficient method of creating and distributing a new digital asset. Coins that are created from a new genesis block always have ownership concentrated among a smaller group of people. In order to ensure the safety of the Bitcoin ecosystem, Bitcoin Platinum has implemented full replay protection, an essential feature that protects users coins from being spent accidentally. Bitcoin Platinum is a free open source software project that is built by volunteer developers and supported by a rapidly growing community of Bitcoin enthusiasts that stretches across the globe. Bitcoin Platinum is a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain that will occur in December. At the predetermined block height, Bitcoin Platinum miners will begin creating blocks with a new proof-of-work algorithm, and this will cause a bifurcation of the Bitcoin blockchain. The original Bitcoin blockchain will continue on unaltered, but a new branch of the blockchain will split off from the original chain. The new branch is a distinct blockchain with the same transaction history as Bitcoin up until the fork, but then diverges from it. As a result of this process, a new cryptocurrency will be born. The purpose of Bitcoin Platinum is to make Bitcoin mining decentralized again. Satoshi Nakamotos idealistic vision of one CPU one vote has been superseded by a reality where the manufacture and distribution of mining equipment has become dominated by a very small number of entities, some of wh Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Platinum Is A Scam, Created By A South Korean Teenager

Bitcoin Platinum Is A Scam, Created By A South Korean Teenager

by Tarunuima Ghosh Laha | Dec 11, 2017 | Bitcoin , Cryptocurrency News | 0 comments South Korean Teenager Creates Outrage In Crypto Market With Hard Fork Scam JoongAng, the most popular South Korean mainstream media outlet recently reported that an alleged scam developed by a local teenager caused much turmoil amongst the seasoned crypto investors who are always on the lookout for newer coin alternatives to increase their earning base. Bitcoin Platinum was the name imparted to this latest Bitcoin hard fork by its official twitter handle @bitcoinplatinum which advertised about the same. The Bitcoin Platinum creator had claimed earlier this month that a hard fork of the Bitcoin protocol shall be set about by developers, miners, Bitcoin users and investors just as the block reaches the block size of 498577. However no information about developers, supporters, miners or investors had yet been revealed by the Twitter account. The Bitcoin community of South Korea had since the very beginning remained skeptical about the Bitcoin Platinum project given its vague vision and description even before these recent turn of events. Bitcoin Platinum had given a tagline that it wished to achieve, Satoshis original vision of Bitcoin as decentralized electronic cash, which seemed like a rip off from the vision of Bitcoin Cash which was hard forked during August earlier this year. Other than the PR gibberish no other value adding information had been revealed by the Bitcoin Platinum account thus accentuating the level of skepticism. One statement put up in Bitcoin Platinums twitter site stated that, Bitcoin Platinum brings true Blockchain ledger to the world.

Bitcoin - A Primer - Platinum Asset Management

Bitcoin - A Primer - Platinum Asset Management

Bitcoin has recently captured popular attention by exceeding the US$10,000 per coin mental barrier. Discussion has been extremely polarised, with some claiming it is the biggest bubble since the Tulip while others claim we are seeing the start of a new paradigm. This article will discuss what it is, some perspectives, and what the future may look like. Bitcoin is the first of a new breed of digital tokens labelled cryptocurrencies (or simply cryptos). The core idea is that it has a public record of all transactions, called a blockchain. New transactions are recorded by adding transaction record blocks to the existing chain, with specific rules around who can add blocks, how new blocks are recognised, the types of blocks and the rate at which they are meant[1] to be added. Bitcoin follows a proof-of-work requirement in order to add a block to the blockchain. This means that the right to record the next block is attained by doing work also known as "mining". The work required, in the case of Bitcoin, is testing a large number of random numbers until you happen upon one that produces a specific outcome. By making the numbers random, the playing field is levelled, with anybody able to jump in and mine. The more miners there are testing random numbers, and the more computing power they use, the faster somebody finds the correct random number. Miners that control more computing power are more likely to be the first to find the solution, with their rate of success being proportional to their share of computing power. Making mining simple means it isnt dominated by any one party, preventing a malicious party from consistently adding fraudulent transaction blocks. Once a new block is mined, the miner will broadcast it to the network. The network will confirm that the random num Continue reading >>
