Story 1 – Bitcoin Gold having some launch issues
The Bitcoin Gold network is still having some major issues with peering. Support won't be available today. We are actively monitoring the situation.
— Ledger (@LedgerHQ) November 13, 2017
That is according to the company who make the Ledger hardware wallets.
That had recently said that they would release support for Bitcoin Gold on the 13th of November just as long as the launch of the main Bitcoin Gold network went smoothly.
While there is no word of any problems on the official Bitcoin Gold website or their Twitter, there is this article:
Which answers the most popular question which is “How to mine Bitcoin Gold”.
I’ll link this article in the video description for today.
When I downloaded the Cuda Miner for my nVidia graphics card, my BitDefender antivirus identified the file as dangers and wouldn’t let me run it.
I’ve seen this happen with NiceHash before and I’m not entirely sure why these files are on a blacklist? I think NiceHash got a bad rep a long time ago and that has lingered.
Any insights in the comments below I’d appreciate it.
Story 2 – Quick note, Bitcoin Core 0.15.1
If you run a Bitcoin Core full node then there’s a new version of the software out if you care to upgrade, which is always advisable.
Story 3 – Bitcoin Cash hard forked successfully last night
If you attended my impromptu livestream, or should we call it ‘robe stream’ last night you’ll know this already because we saw it happen in real time.
The fork was successful however I can’t say anything about the effectiveness of the changes until they have had a few hundred blocks to settle in.
Anyway we observe at this early state won’t mean much.
In Conclusion Then Before We End With The Market Roundup, What Did I Learn Today?
I was trying to figure out why yesterday’s episode ended up in the hall of fame for most disliked videos I’ve ever published.
The general consensus was because I put the words “stop using Bitcoin” in the title.
The thing about that though is that it said “Stop using Bitcoin” Exodus and Gemini, meaning I was quoting those two companies.
I think many people didn’t process the quotes and took it as me saying you should stop using Bitcoin.
Small details matter because they can change the meaning in an instant.
Market roundup – FAST
Winners and losers.
