Nearly six years after the first Bitcoin ATM was installed in Vancouver, Canada the number of the cryptocurrency-dispensing machines across the world has risen to 5,006, according to Coin ATM Radar. In the last 60 days, an average of just under 6 Bitcoin ATMs were installed per day. Has the US bitcoin ATM market reached saturation point? Unsurprisingly, the U.S. leads in the number of crypto vending machines with over 3200 Bitcoin ATM locations. This is around 64 percent of the world’s total. Canada, which hosted the world’s first ever cryptocurrency dispensing machine, was second with over 680 locations. In
On June 21, the price of bitcoin core (BTC) crossed the $ 10,000 mark for the first time since March 08, 2018. At the moment BTC has a $ 180 billion dollar market capitalization as the cryptocurrency gathered more than 166% over the last six months.
October 31, 2008, and January 3, 2009.
The two dates have cemented themselves with Promethean significance into Bitcoin’s lore. On October 31, Satoshi Nakamoto published the Bitcoin white paper, a constitution of sorts for his revolutionary monetary system and its intrinsic currency.
On January 3, this constitution came alive with Bitcoin Block #0. Also known as the network’s genesis block, this cornerstone would provide the foundation for an ecosystem that would challenge our perception of how money is valued and managed in a digital age.
BitMEX has taken an advertisement out on the front page of January 3rd, 2019 edition of The Times thanking Satoshi Nakamoto for Bitcoin, ten years to the day after Satoshi Nakamoto quoted the front page of the same publication in Bitcoin’s first block (#0). Tweeting from their BitMEX Research account, they said: Happy 10th Birthday

Bitcoin Cash, the “big block” project that forked away from the Bitcoin blockchain in August 2017, “hard forked” (split) into two different coins last week: “Bitcoin Cash ABC” (BCHABC) and “Bitcoin Cash SV” (BCHSV).
One week later, the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain has accumulated more proof of work and has been “ahead” of the Bitcoin Cash SV chain practically since the split. Its native currency, BCHABC, is also trading higher on exchanges. Most Bitcoin Cash ABC proponents, therefore, feel victorious — but not all Bitcoin Cash SV proponents consider the battle to be over just yet.
With Ethereum’s launch in 2015 came a flurry of excitement over the future potential of smart contracts.
Utilizing a more flexible scripting language than Bitcoin, the platform’s decentralized applications (DApps) were touted by proponents as unlocking a plethora of formerly untapped use cases for the blockchain. From tokenized assets and blockchain-based legal contracts to healthcare records and supply chain tracking, DApps are going to remold traditional industries in their image, solve bottlenecks and revolutionize enterprise inefficiencies out of existence.
More than three years later, and we’re still waiting for the revolution.
DECENT.bet (DBET), an open-source peer-to-peer blockchain gaming platform that lets anyone build custom games, predictive markets and casinos, will be the first decentralized application (dApp) to go live on the VeChain (VET) blockchain. https://t.co/PXItoCHyPL has now been officially operating for one year!

As was to be expected after a few days of positive momentum, things are returning to normal for all cryptocurrency markets. This unfortunately means all currencies are going through another rough spell of negative market pressure. All five of the top currencies have lost value, with the XRP price facing the biggest setback of them all.
The XRP Price Dips Briefly
It is evident all cryptocurrencies have to go through a small correction after the sudden bullish trend late last week and earlier this week. Even so, a 5% setback or more is not warranted at this stage either, yet it is what most of the top currencies have to contend with right now. XRP Price watchers have noticed how the value has declined by 6.04% in the past 24 hours.
News that Dogecoin had become a test asset for Ethereum’s inter-coin Rinkeby testnet has sparked a project aiming to hard fork it later this year.
Dogecoin’s ‘Serious’ Year?
Dogethereum (DOGX), which shares its name with the Rinkeby project known as Dogethereum Bridge, is looking to branch off from the Dogecoin chain in fall. This would constitute Dogecoin’s first ever hard fork.
“Dogethereum is new decentralized digital currency, it will be founded on snapshot of popular Dogecoin, based on ETH algorithm with fastest speed of transactions, smart contracts,” developers describe on Bitcointalk Monday.
The New York Agreement, also known as Segwit2x, was planned for mid-November but was canceled in the weeks leading up. But just recently, the fork is set to launch again.
The announcement was made on December 16th, with the fork date set for December 28th. Some Segwit2x futures markets are still live on some exchanges, and this attempts to finish the project that was started. HitBTC and YoBit are already supporting the fork, saying that the people who’ve purchased B2X tokens receive their coins.
