One of the most worrying aspects of the BitLicense regulatory framework is the exodus of Bitcoin companies in the New York State area. Over the past few weeks, it has become quite clear that companies deciding to be compliant with BitLicense might face some serious backlash from its users. For those of you who are wondering which companies are actively pursuing a BitLicense, the following short list will give you an idea.
When it comes to cryptocurrency exchanges, there is one constant to be found : all altcoins have to be traded against either Bitcoin or Litecoin. Exchanges such as Cryptsy and Bittrex have been experimenting with additional trading markets in the form of Blackcoin and Primecoin, but these endeavours have not lead to any major successes just yet. EmpoEx, a recently launched digital currency exchange, is looking to open up an additional trading market in the form of Viacoin. On the other hand, some coins will be facing delisting , so let’s look at those as well.
While I am waiting for the Bitcoin Bowl broadcast to begin on ESPN, I might as well write some more articles tonight. The Noocoin trading market on Bittrex will open up soon, as their ICO/crowdfunding campaign has ended three days ago. The pre-order deposit system on the NooHack website has gone live as well in the mean time, so let’s take a look at that as well!
When visiting the NooHack website, you are presented with their variety of nootropic products which can all be pre-ordered as of right now. Once you add your product(s) to your shopping cart, and hit the Checkout button, we get to the important bit: the payments page.
Over the past few days, we have written several articles about NooCoin, a new digital currency which can be used to purchase nootropics through their NooHack platform. As the ICO/crowdfunding has come to a close, we can now report the minimum required amount has been reached by quite a margin. Let’s do some number crunching and take a look at what is to come.
As seems to be a trend with most ICOs or crowdfunding campaigns lately, a lot of funds has been invested in the final hours. Even though things were looking quite grim a few hours before the ICO was to end, a total of 122 Bitcoin has been raised, out of a maximum of 250 BTC.
Ever since the previous update was posted little over a month ago, things have gone awfully quiet in the world of Utilitycoin. In fact, things were getting so dire, UTIL is facing a potential delisting from the Bittrex exchange due to insufficient trading volume over the past weeks. A new developer is currently at the helm, in order to prove the code is still being worked on.
The original Ultilitycoin thread on BitcoinTalk has seen several tumbleweeds pass by in the past fe weeks, and there is very little to no progress to show. As is the case with digital currencies, this causes a lot of unrest among the community, and leads to potential exchange delisting as no one is trading any UTIL.
For our final article of the day, I want to bring our loyal readers an update on the revival of CryptCoin. As we mentioned in this article, a new team is in charge of not just restoring confidence in this altcoin, but also bringing new features to the table. In order to do so, they have attracted a new developer who will be working on the project.
The new addition to the CRYPT team is a significant name, as is it none other than Zach Holmes! For those of you who are unaware of who Zach Holmes is, he is the developer of zTrader, a cryptocurrency trading application for the Android platform.
The OPAL cryptocurrency keeps making headlines as of late, because of their file sharing/storing platform called OpalDrive, and the fact they have been added to SuperNET. Furthermore, the team tries to keep taking things to the next level when it comes to offering people a way to purchase the coins. Paypal is one of the options being looked at right now.
While there are quite a few exchanges listing the OPAL, there is a growing interest from investors who are not usually involved in digital currency. Therefore, a new solution has to be found in order to gain more mainstream attention to Opal.
It has been a while since we last saw an important announcement from the CAIx team, and as a result, the price has gone down by quite a bit. Of course, the MintPal fiasco didn’t help matters much either, so there’s that. There is some good news though, as the long awaited KnC Titan ASIC miner has finally been delivered!
When the CAIX team announced their Profit Sharing Program with the world, a lot of investors were over the moon about the potential profit margins coming to CAIx. After all, the original plan was to receive three KnC Titan ASIC miners, all of which would be pointed to the CAIX multipool, in order to create buy pressure on the exchanges.
One of the latest cryptocurrency ICO’s to gain a lot of attention is the Cleverhash ICO. Not just because this is a new altcoin which has recently launched, but also because of the tokens allowing investors to purchase ASIC miners at a reduced price. For those of you who still have no clue, check out our first and second Cleverhash articles.
Now that the Cleverhash ICO has ended, the first order of business is to burn any unsold CHASH tokens on the BIttrex exchange. The team has decided to create a completely new blockchain representing the correct amount of coins in circulation (more information below).
Android wallets for altcoins are nothing new under the sun, yet not all of them works as smooth as one would like. Having tested several different altcoin Android wallets over the past fe months, only a handful seem to be working the way I would want them to. Energycoin have released their Android wallet yesterday, so let’s take a look at how it holds up!
Even though the ENRG Android wallet was originally scheduled to be released on October 31st, there were some last minute delays which pushed back the release date by about three weeks. Then again, I’d rather have a wallet that actually works properly instead of getting something that works half the time.
