Green Sunday: As Cryptos appreciate en masse

The week behind was so rough but it has given way to a bountiful Sunday with most digital currencies making profits. On CoinMarketCap it is awesome to see everywhere being mostly green, unlike the red sea we mostly dealt with last week. Only a handful of tokens is actually in red on top 100, and only one dip on top 20. In all 18 cryptos made downwards adjustment on the first 100.  Individual Crypto Standings After all the accusations of scam, EOS is back on top 10 with the biggest gain of the day representing 6.42 percent. The Business to Business Blockchain application made history last week in the highest ICO record ever. Market leader, Bitcoin has brought its price to $2586.65 and recorded an expansion of 2.70 percent. It appears the frontline for the upcoming scaling battle on August 1, is the $2500s. Ethereum is being watched keenly this week if it could overcome the downturn of last week. The Smart Contract Trailblazer did not put smiles on its holders’ faces at all in the week

WARNING! SLACK SCAMS ON THE RISE: Use with extreme caution and awareness

If you have been around the crypto ecosystem for a while, you have probably entered the realm of SLACK where teams and communities “meet” to share their insights, raise awareness and collaborate on projects on a neat subscriber-based platform in an environment that is a geared toward real-time information flow and communications. Myself, a part of this platform for nearly three years, I have found it priceless in terms of communicating with teams and sharing vital information when time is of the essence. Even though it is free for use, the platform does come with a hefty price tag when considering it is a ‘pay-by-user’ based expense structure, which causes most communities to rely solely on the free version making it difficult to archive history and limited use of a plethora of applications. Until recently, I have been fortunate enough not to have seen anything questionable, or if there was scamming around, perhaps it was of little importance, however, there seems to be a heat

ICOs: Before You Invest, Read This

Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is a buzz term this Summer. You are reading Core Media which means you are probably equipped with the ready-to-spout knowledge of the technical details, but for the sake of total clarity, let’s review.  ICO or Initial Coin Offering is a popular way for a cryptocurrency project (usually still in development) to fund the work they are doing, and a great way to allow early backers, investors and enthusiasts to buy in before the public sinks their teeth into the emerging crypto-creation. An ICO is also a way to boost awareness of a new token or project because often times it creates a buzz with the company or team name, and it can create a certain feeling of exclusivity.  This is especially true for those ICO’s that sell out quickly, leaving a line of salivating would-be investors.  ICO’s are evidently the hottest trend to sweep over the globe’s finest minds, since… Windows.  Seriously, most people still aren’t sure what is happening behind the ICO sc

Decent Network Launch and Token: What You Need to Know

The Decent Network is an ambitious blockchain project that plans to disrupt and better the content distribution industry by hosting content in a decentralized network which can then be purchased directly from the content publisher, avoiding middlemen fees, censorship and hacks. Following the completion of its 2016 Initial Coin Offering (ICO), Decent has been building up to its platform launch both in terms of marketing and development, launching multiple test nets before the official platform launch, where ICO investors could test the network for possible bugs and imperfections. On the 30th of July, the Decent Network was finally launched along with the DecentGo market and the Decent (DCT) token, the latter of which is currently trading in the Bittrex exchange. Both the launch of the market and the network itself went smoothly with more than 1700 accounts were handled and over 27M DCT distributed so far. The DecentGo market is the “the first web-based application and online DCT wall

May The Fork Be With You

With Bitcoin set to fork near the beginning of August, it’s amazing to see the panic slowly spreading across the throngs of Bitcoin users. There are many perspectives on the matter and all of them become heated under scrutiny.    Let’s take a breath, shall we?  A good friend and technology wizard known as Zodiac from Bitvest.io wrote a beautiful explanation of technical details and terminology. It says:  “WHAT THE FORK? BIPS, FORKS, SEGWIT, UASF, AND NYA?“ BIP: Bitcoin Improvement Proposals are the method to implement new features in Bitcoin. They may also be informational documents or describe new processes external to the protocol, e.g.: modifications to the BIP system itself. Each BIP is given its own number to identify which it is. For example, BIP141 is the BIP# for SegWit. Forks: A fork is where a blockchain splits into two pieces (forks) at a certain block. Usually, only one fork lives on, but it is possible for multiple to exist. There are two major types of forks used

SuperNET Announces Bounties for BarterDEX GUI Development

Although blockchain technology provides many advantages in nearly every industry, one of the most attractive aspects of cryptocurrencies, and the number one reason for their popularity thus far, is still their performance as a store of value and a speculative asset. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ether and others have created many millionaires and given healthy returns to many average citizens. One of the reasons people look at cryptocurrencies as an alternative store of value and investment vehicle is because of their low entry barrier. Users can invest in cryptocurrencies for as low as $10 and they can do so without any previous experience or special knowledge by simply accessing a cryptocurrency exchange via a computer or smartphone. However, and as we’ve seen with cases like Bitfinex and Mt. Gox, the centralized model behind cryptocurrency exchanges has made them an easy and attractive target for cyber criminals. Not only are these exchanges targets for outside attackers, they a

Waves Partners with Deloitte to bring Blockchain Tech to the Mainstream Stage

One of the most attractive aspects in the cryptosphere is the lack of regulations and bureaucracy which has allowed users and project creators to skip some of the red tape that is usually associated with the regular economy. This is the case with Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), cryptocurrency-based crowdfunding campaigns that allow projects and startups to get the funds required to build their ideas. While these campaigns do facilitate the process of getting an idea off the ground, several problems in the industry still need to be resolved. The lack of regulation surrounding Initial Coin Offering campaigns can also have negative effects, like the growing number of “scam” ICOs in the space. Furthermore, the complex nature of cryptocurrencies can also make it hard for projects to launch their own campaigns without assistance. The Waves Platform has been at the forefront of the ICO world in 2017, facilitating the crowdfunding process for blockchain-based projects like MobileGo, ZrCoin
