Popular iOS Game SaruTobi has had a colored history ever since its inception a few years ago. By letting players earn “Bitcoin” while playing the game, there has been quite some controversy surrounding this mobile game. In fact, it had even been pulled from Apple’s App Store not that long ago. Once the game was restored, the SaruTobi developers have been working hard on making necessary changes to the game.
Bitcoin enables us to do many new and exciting things we could only have dreamed about many moons ago. Storing data in the cloud but in a transparent way for everyone to see? Coming soon. Sending payments to anyone in the world at low or no fees? Check. But what if you could get paid in Bitcoin for reading a book? Well, that service now exists as well, thanks to PaidBooks.
In our previous articles, we talked about several aspects of Bitcoin already. First of all, we looked at the ideology of Satoshi Nakamoto when Bitcoin was created a few years ago. After that, we briefly talked about the technology of the blockchain that powers the Bitcoin network. In this article, we will talk more about the monetary aspect of Bitcoin.
Even though we only recently did an article on KryptKoin, which you can find here, there is a fair amount of news coming out over the coming days, so expect multiple articles. Let’s take a look at the upcoming KryptKoin Multipool giveaway!
The KryptKoin Multipool giveaway will start on July 8th, and runs for an entire week until July 15th. The items being given away are GAW Scrypt ASIC miners, and the reward will depend on the value of KryptKoin on exchanges.
It’s time for some good news coming from AsiaCoin. As we reported yesterday, about half of the exchanges had already looked at the updated source code and updated their wallets. The new wallet is now available for all users as well.
I can imagine it has been a long wait for everyone who is still holding some AsiaCoin, after expecting the updated source code to be released for a few weeks now. Overnight, the binaries have been compiled for both Windows and Mac OS X , which can be found here.
For those of you who haven’t looked at any exchanges today, you might want to sit down before you do so. CinniCoin has gone up in value to, as of this writing, 20,000 Satoshi. Let’s find out why this is happening, shall we?
One of the main features about CinniCoin that surely helped this progress, is the 0% pre-mine and no IPO. You can say what you want, but either one of those (or both, worst case scenario) will sooner or later have a negative impact on your coin’s value.
Even though we looked at what ShibeCoin brings to the table yesterday afternoon, there is a new small breaking update I wanted to tell you folks about. As I mentioned in the article, ShibeCoin was potentially getting added to Poloniex, and we can now confirm this to be true.
I really like what Poloniex is doing lately, by adding coins that actually have a chance to bring value to the cryptocurrency community. ShibeCoin is definitely on that list, and this means it will get more exposure over the coming period.
Even though we only reported about SummerCoin yesterday, there is a small update that does require some love and attention. It’s not always easy for newer coins to get listed on a reputable exchange, but SummerCoin is now on Poloniex!
When it comes to talking about reputable exchanges, people will often say Cryptsy, MintPal or Bter. But not all coins can get listed there immediately, so you have to have a fourth player in the mix. That player is called Poloniex.
Even though we are still waiting on the updated WhiteCoin client as users, MintPal (and I assume Cryptsy as well) have resumed deposits and withdrawals on their exchanges. This should indicate they have received the updated WhiteCoin client already.
Despite what everyone, including myself, expected, there wasn’t a big WhiteCoin dump at all. Even though you could understand how a lot of people might lose faith after the recent debacle, I’m glad to see people are not giving up just yet.
For the final article of the day, I want to give a bit of the spotlight to BlackCoin. There have been some concerns among the community about the Multipool, and the price on exchanges keep dropping as well. What is going on?
A few people have been voicing their concerns about the BlackCoin Multipool payouts. Reports have come in through IRC and BitcoinTalk about payouts being very low, despite earlier calculations. You always have to take these things with a grain of salt though.
