One of the demographics where Bitcoin could make an impact is in the 16-23 year old bracket. The current generation of young adults and students have grown up in an era of little to no cash payments, multiple economic crises and technology evolving at such a rapid pace it has become nearly impossible to keep track of. But a lot of them also know about Bitcoin and digital currency, which could make for a very interesting mix.
Many among us have given cryptocurrency-related Christmas gifts to friends, family and loved ones. While paper wallets and mobile applications are a great way to “carry” your digital currency with you, they are not the most secure places to store monetary value. Luckily for us, there are several types of cold storage available. One of these options comes in the form of CryptoVault.
CryptoVault is currently looking for backers to support their crowdfunding campaign on the StartJOIN platform.The team hopes to raise at least US$5,000 by December 31st, which should not be too much of a problem you would think. Oddly enough, this campaign has been running since November 15th, and there are only 7 backers so far. This article will hopefully change that.
Late last night, an updated version of Dogecoin Core has been released, and version 1.8.1 is now the latest client. Several bugs have been fixed, and paper wallet support is now available in the Dogecoin client. A small list of other changes is included as well, so let’s do a quick overview of what is new in Dogecoin Core 1.8.1.
Dogecoin Core has been brought in line with Bitcoin 0.9.3, and will feature a lot of bugfixes because of this upgrade. Do keep in mind that, while this client fixes a ton of bugs, this is not a mandatory update, but it is still advised to update your client anyway.
As the end of May approaches, summer is finally here. Its been a very busy time for our Dev Team and today we bring you another latest news report on what has been happening with Global Denomination over the last week as there have been many developments.
This week saw the release of our v0.8.8.0 Update this implemented a hard fork to DigiShield, new icons and hardcoded nodes, the switch over was very painless for most of our users and only one pool had issues causing them to close their GDN pool down. Our network hashrate peaked at almost 4 GH/s as the news of our updated code spread across the crypto grapevine. Updated wallets for Win, OSX and Linux are available now on http://globaldenomination.org
There are some new developments concerning LibertyCoin that I want to share with you. Not in regards to the anonymity/privacy feature, because that is still under development, but about some other useful tool.
We will get back to the anonymity/privacy development in a bit, but I first wanted to tell you about the LibertyCoin Paper Wallet that is now available. The process is simple to follow, and your XLB paper wallet will be ready in no time!
Keeping in mind that a non-mandatory WhiteCoin client update should be released today, there is another WhiteCoin wallet I wanted to talk to you about. We now have an official WhiteCoin paper wallet available!
For a live demo of this WhiteCoin paper wallet, click here. If you want to run your local copy of the official source code for this paper wallet, you can do so, as the source is on GitHub and can be found by clicking here.
Starting today, we’re going to do a few “special” articles, focusing on one coin, split over a few parts. For now, this will only be about one coin, but if it proves to be a success, we’ll gladly do other coins.
The coin we will be talking about is MinCoin. MinCoin is a crypto currency that , for some reason, hasn’t seen much spotlight, and is hardly ever talked about outside of the MinCoin community. I guess it’s time for an introduction then, so you can all see what you’ve been missing out on!
