After the US government gave the green light for Bitcoin transactions there are still people, left right and center, who keep bashing Bitcoin. The reason is that they are probably being paid to do so. The banks are feeling threatened by new currencies beyond their control, but here is the kicker: the US government DOES RECOGNIZE Bitcoin as a legal way to pay for products.

HashDollar has everything to do with mining, hashpower. Not the hash you can buy on the corner of the street from someone. Just sayin’…
Either way, HashDollar is a new Scrypt coin, that actually has been released a week ago, but only to the Brazilian subforum on BitcoinTalk. Whether or not this is true, who knows? A lot of people are screaming “pre-mine” already, so we’ll leave it at that.
There is another factor to take into consideration whenever you want to run a service like an exchange : website security.
Several user passwords, which were stored in hashed form, have been compromised and used to withdraw funds to the hacker’s wallet(s).
Companies that are selling products accepting cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, are on the rise. This is a good sign of cryptocurrency getting recognized as a valued payment method. This will generate even more global awareness about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in general.
So no “highway to hell” for the cryptocurrencies? Well, not exactly, but there can be a “bad moon rising” in the future; mainly in the form of taxes. In earlier articles we have given some pointers why there is such a “negative image” created around everything Crypto related. For example : the trade of illegal goods, like drugs, and the shutdown of Silk Road by the US government. That way; the US seized all of the Bitcoins that had belonged to Silk Road.
Before we go any further on this article, I would like to express that we at CryptoArticles do not take a stance on whether this is a good or a bad idea, you can figure that out for yourselves.
To explain what a hard coin cap is , let’s take a look at Bitcoin. Bitcoin is finite, as there will be only ever be 21 million Bitcoin in circulation. The supply is (hard) capped at 21,000,000.
I really love BitcoinWisdom. Not just for the fact they offer charts, but also because they try to add coins which aren’t either Bitcoin, or Litecoin.
These “other” coins are all coins with unlimited potential, such as DogeCoin, PeerCoin,NameCoin, and now also WorldCoin!
The information for the WorldCoin chart is taken from the Cryptsy exchange, where WorldCoin is traded against both Bitcoin and Litecoin. Only the WorldCoin/Bitcoin trading pair information is available at this point.
Well it seems as if Pokémon are still one of the most popular things in the world, which is partially understandable, because they’re cute, have funny noises,…Wait, what am I saying, I’m 28 years old ffs…
Regardless of that, PikaCoin has been released! A coin themed after Pika…chuu! Our lovely cuddle yellow friend who can pretty much electrocute anyone if he wanted to.
When I first saw the name “LeafCoin“, I was expecting something entirely different than we were actually presented with. Maybe I’m just getting old…
I wasn’t disappointed though, don’t get me wrong! On the contrary, I was very pleased with how professional everything looked.
And apparently I wasn’t the only one, as LeafCoin has already been listed on no less than six different exchanges, with a Chinese exchange being added to that list starting tomorrow. LeafCoin has only been around for 8 days now guys.
Either way, The Big Ball of RapidBalls is looking to add two more cryptocurrencies to their existing line up, consisting of Bitcoin,WorldCoin,LottoCoin,PrimeCoin,DogeCoin & DevCoin.

With so many altcoins out there, it’s becoming very hard to keep up with creating .bat files for all pools & configurations.
It surelwould be a hell of a lot easier if you could just rent someone’s hashpower for a fixed price, and point it to whatever pool you desire, right?
Luckily for us, BetaRigs is making this a possibility. You can either rent or lease a mining rig, and get paid in Bitcoin.
We took the test by renting out my 7970’s hashpower, which , while undervolted, provides a stable 630 khash/second. We set up the price at 0.0125 Bitcoin per 24 hours, which we thought was fair.
