Five days since losing its U.S. dollar peg, fiat-backed cryptocurrency tether (USDT) continues to trade at a discount to its supposed $ 1.00 valuation. Defenders have largely chalked up the markdown to FUD, arguing that supporters of other “stablecoins” are launching a coordinated assault on tether, which has long dominated this market niche. However, billionaire investor

Ambrosus, a blockchain and IoT platform for quality assurance in food and pharmaceutical supply chains, has announced the launch of its mainnet, AMB-NET 1.0. The mainnet lets companies record public and private supply chain data on the Ambrosus blockchain to ensure product quality.

Chinese mining company Bitmain has announced it is exploring new policies that will boost the company’s transparency and communication with the cryptocurrency community.
In a company statement, Bitmain said, “We believe that communities served by Bitmain and its products should be supported and served as transparently as possible. Recent measures have included restricting order quantities, ensuring a first-paid-first-ship order of fulfillment, blocking IPs that we suspect to be hoarding, and publishing detailed shipping updates openly.”
Bitcoin Magazine asked Bitmain to explain the extent to which the data supplied by the company will be verifiable. A company representative responded:
Advanced location data technology company Blis, backed by Unilever, Endeit and Beringea, has announced a pilot platform to add transparency across the data ecosystem. Digital advertising commonly relies on disparate data sets to help identify audiences likely to buy products and services. Marketers increasingly face pressures to comply with data privacy regulations, understand where it came from, and to account for the performance of data relative to its costs. The platform is in response to the increased industry challenges around transparency and verification of data, including location and demographic data, and will run on the IBM Blockchain Platform.
FoodLogiQ, a SaaS provider of traceability, food safety and supply chain transparency solutions, together with a select group of customers, have announced the launch of a blockchain pilot. AgBiome Innovations, Subway®/Independent Purchasing Cooperative, Testo, Tyson Foods and others are partnering with FoodLogiQ to test the application of blockchain to raise transparency within their supply chains.
During the project, which is set to be launched by the tech company’s innovation arm FoodLogiQ Labs in Q3 2018, the pilot group will research the opportunities and challenges of this emerging technology within the food industry.
Blockchain technology can be adapted to suit all kinds of needs, most of which extend far beyond the realm of finance. Decentralizing the concept of voting is one of the most interesting prospects to keep an eye on, especially now that Global Arena Holding is exploring the boundaries of this idea. Leveraging Bitcoin’s platform technologies to create a new breed of general election sounds quite appealing.
Our society is defined by technology and how we use the innovations and tools at our disposal. Over the past few years, the innovation has far outpaced the understanding of new technologies, yet consumer-grade products are being created at an accelerated pace. Wearable technology is one of those new trends of consumer products, although most customers won’t give the possible ramifications a second thought.
Blockchain technology can be adapted to achieve many goals in life. Whether it is more transparency, easier management or just relying on decentralized services, the possibilities are endless. And even for the everyday consumer, there are multiple benefits stemming from using the blockchain. Have you ever wondered how the food you are eating went from seed to a full-fledged meal? You might find out sooner rather than later.
Changetip is one of those unique Bitcoin services everyone learns to love over time. Even though the platform offers a ton of functionality and integration out of the box, that moment when you send or receive your first Bitcoin tip is truly amazing. But what about user privacy, a matter near and dear to all our hearts?
ChangeTip’s Privacy Options
Bitcoin offers a certain level of anonymity and user privacy, a trait many of us enjoy on a regular basis. By being so different compared to more traditional media, Bitcoin has all the right tools to disrupt the current financial infrastructure. But it goes beyond so much more than that, as tipping content creators in Bitcoin is not only beneficial to the tipper, but also the person receiving the love.
When it comes to Litecoin, there hardly seem to be any projects making the headlines on major crypto news sites. While CryptoArticles is not a major news site by any means just yet, we do aim to focus more on litecoin from 2015 onwards. In order to “get our feet wet”, so to speak, I want to talk to our beloved readers about LitecoinLocal.
ccedk.com, a Danish exchange renowned for its security, have announced that they are now accepting Darkcoin. Trading with Darkcoin will include, amongst others, trading pairs such as the Euro and the Russian ruble opening up further possibilities for Darkcoin’s increasing popularity.
ccedk.com is presented as the first crime-free cryptocurrency trading platform. Boasting a dual-language English/Russian interface it is aimed at a wide audience, but has often been overlooked. Notably there are plans for further interfaces in Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Danish and Chinese suggesting expansion is on the horizon.
VeniVidiVici One of the most recently released coins that has gotten a lot of attention in a very short span of time, is called Coin. With a very limited supply of coins, and a short mining phase, let’s take a look at what else there is to VeniVidiVici Coin!
With probably one of the longest coin names in the history of digital currency,VeniVidiVici Coin stands out amongst the crowd. Add the fact there is a lot of talk going on about VVV on several big financial sites, such as TalkGold, things are looking quite interesting already!
IEnergyCoin n the thick of all these different alternate cryptocurrencies, it’s not hard to lose track of one or two Cryptos. Some of these even turn out to be “sleeper coins”, such as . Have you heard of it yet? No? Let’s explore!
Being launched on April 29th, EnergyCoin is nearly 2 months old today. Yet hardly anyone has heard of it for some reason, and not because of a lack of efforts from the ENRG community.So what makes EnergyCoin so special?
As promised, today marks the day on which the entire VeriCoin development team tell us their identities. We have pictures, names and a short bio for everyone. There are far less people behind VeriCoin than I actually anticipated.
Given the amount of projects that are currently in development for VeriCoin right now, and the magnitude of these projects ( assuming they can deliver on their promise) , I honestly expected seven or eight names.
Earlier this month we saw the launch of another alt coin. This one is called Coinaaa. You probably think “oh no, NOT another one I have to keep track of”. Still the coin looks promising and requires an unbiased review.
Coinaaa is a bit different, which makes/keeps it interesting.
