At the December 7, 2018, TenX Summit, a group of developers showcased an industry first: an atomic swap between a non-native asset, TenX’s PAY token, and a native asset, bitcoin.
By non-native, the team is referring to an asset/coin that is not the base currency for the network. For Ethereum, for example, the native asset is ether, while any token that is built on the protocol is considered a non-native asset.

What a great week for Bitcoin! It broke through the $ 8,000 barrier and is taking the lion’s share of market dominance. Now, according to Quartz India, there’s another reason to celebrate – cryptocurrencies could soon be seen as a viable medium of exchange in the country! Well, in the gambling industry at least.
Was was to be expected after a rather positive weekend for all cryptocurrency markets, the new week is off to a bit of a rough start. Most of the top currencies have lost a small bit of value, even though there is no reason to panic just yet. The Stellar price, for example, has gone up in value over the past 24 hours, which shows the positive momentum is not over yet.
Even though all cryptocurrencies are still in the green over the past 24 hours, it remains to be seen how long this situation can last. Some of the earlier gains have been eradicated already for most coins. The Cardano price, on the other hand, is still surging full steam ahead during these curious times.
The Cardano Price Trucks Along Nicely
With all of the top cryptocurrencies in the green on a Saturday, a very peculiar situation is created. Albeit there should be plenty of optimism among market watchers, there is also a sense of impending dread. The year 2018 has shown all speculators how no price gains go unpunished for very long.
Delving into bitcoin can take guts — and not just the type of bravado needed to embrace crypto speculation. Sometimes standing up for bitcoin also means standing up for your homeland and fellow citizens, in search of a better way.
The latter display of bravery is embedded in the recently launched Let’s Talk Bitcoin! podcast #370 hosted by Adam B. Levine, Stephanie Murphy and Jonathan Mohan. That’s where LTB correspondent Christian Garcia steps up with a report from a country in crisis, reminding listeners about the world-altering dimensions of bitcoin that are separate from investing.
Cryptocurrency has its place in the world and Russia should carefully consider when and how to take part in the process of its development, Vladimir Putin said in his annual Q&A session with Russian citizens. The president noted that “by definition” neither Russia, nor any other country could have a national cryptocurrency. Putin also mentioned the saga around Telegram, in the light of seeking “civilized” decisions.
Cows and Cryptocurrencies
From potholes to spaceports, the Direct Line with Vladimir Putin usually covers it all. It is hard to imagine there is absolutely no preparation or plot behind the scenes, but one has to admit – four hours of questions can be a grueling challenge for anyone’s concentration and intellectual power.
Talk to any number of people about cryptocurrency and you’ll receive any number of responses. Those range from a knee-jerk reaction about criminals and evil deeds to die-hard evangelists championing the death of centralized organizations. Indeed, cryptocurrency may be one of the most loved and hated phenomena the world has ever seen.
But in between the camp of naysayers at one end and the cluster of bagholders at the other, there’s a solid group of players in the middle rolling out ideas. We’ve already seen seamless, near-instant international transactions, companies improving logistics, and elections held free from fraud.

Blockchain tech allows business transactions to be secure in a world where everything from your Facebook profile to your entire business model can be hacked. But it’s the unseen fraud and tactics that go unnoticed which companies and security experts need to worry about as well.
Too Costly and Burdensome
ICOs seeking to crowdfund their big idea have a quandary: should they register their token as a security, complete with the expense, delays, and paperwork this entails, or should they brand it a utility and hope the SEC doesn’t come after them? Last year, virtually everything was labeled a utility and SEC-compliant crowdsales were almost unheard of. But in 2018, launching a utility token in the U.S. is fraught with risks and uncertainty. To tap into the lucrative U.S. market, the regulatory route is now the only viable path to follow.
Another day of cryptocurrency trading is upon us. Even though things started to look a bit worrisome last night, there is apparently nothing to worry about whatsoever.
