Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin could have been ‘Non-giver of XRP’ in an alternate universe

The cryptocurrency market has been pitching Ethereum [ETH] against XRP constantly, as the two rest at the second and the third positions on CoinMarketCap list, respectively. Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s co-founder on a Twitter thread spoke about his plan of interning at Ripple way back in 2013.
Vitalik’s tweet was a response to Brian Armstrong’s, CEO of Coinbase, tweet on Zoom CEO being denied visa eight times. While talking about his experience Vitalik tweeted:
“Fun fact: I tried to be an intern at Ripple back in the day (mid 2013), but US visa complications having to do with the fact that the company had only existed for 9 months and the minimum was 1 year stopped me.”
This was all the crypto enthusiasts needed to remind Buterin of the success he has achieved as the ‘Non-giver of Ether.’ The Twitter users took a dig at Ripple and XRP and said:
“Lucky you didn’t get Rippled. Congratulations on the future development of Blockchain.”
One of the XRP enthusiasts, @Am1R007 told the co-founder of Ethereum to join Ripple as an intern now, tagging David Schwartz, Ripple’s CTO in the comment. Meanwhile, most of the Ethereum community took comfort in the fact that Buterin did not land an internship at Ripple and co-founded Ethereum.

Tron DApp Weekly Report: Tron’s 24-hour transaction volume and trading volume doubles as DApps’ number exceeds 300

Tron has been in a tough spot in the cryptocurrency market, as it has been fighting the bear for the past few days. However, Tron foundation’s new initiatives and the communities’ support to its DApps has kept Tron moving forward. The DApp weekly report stated that Tron’s DApps number crossed 300, with more than 700 smart contracts.
Tron’s new DApps include mainly gaming and gambling application, which increased its Daily Average User [DAU] to 40,000 which was reportedly 10,000 more than last week. Tron’s 24-hour transaction volume along with trading volume doubled this week, giving it the much-need push to be relevant in the market. However, the biggest update in the Tron ecosystem is the launch of the TRC20-based Tether [USDT] stable coin.
Tron’s decentralized exchange, TRXMarket has been listed by CryptoCompare, a well known digital currency market website. Tron’s DApps also gained space on ICO Bench, a Russian website. The website has in-depth information about more than 5,000 initial public offerings [IPOs] and Tron’s listing on this website marked a developmental achievement for the foundation and its DApps.
The report highlighted two particular DApps that topped the user experience. The Tron Kingdom, a multi-player, multi-round strategy game, that made it to the top of the list. This game enables players to fight as the ruler against four kingdoms, where the users have to calculate hash power and pledge a command without the knowledge of the other players until the command has been realized. Tron’s smart contract is used to settle the disputed in the game and to conclude with a winner.
Traps, is the second multiplayer game, that has similarities to the game Snake, which took the second place. However, the game is more complicated than Snake and each session on the game lasts for 9 minutes and 50 seconds and the player with the largest cell wins the game.

Craig Wright’s ‘doctorate’ creates buzz again on twitter; BSV camp rallies to support the good Doctor!

Craig Wright has been the favorite topic of the crypto world over the past few days. The Bitcoin SV community believes that Wright is indeed behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, the original Bitcoin creator, while almost the rest of the crypto community takes an opposite stance on the matter.
While Craig Wright is working towards proving that he is Satoshi, the BSV camp is trying to prove that he actually has a doctorate degree to the naysayers on social media. Twitter user @thekingvest posted a screenshot of Charles Strut University’s ‘Alumni Education Verification’ page, which confirmed that Craig Wright graduated from the university with a doctorate in Philosophy, along with Master of Information Systems Security, Master of Networking and System Administration, and Master of Management.

The Charles Stuart University has an Alumni Education verification website
It clearly shows that Craig Wright has:
* Doctor of Philosophy
* Master of Information Systems Security
* Master of Networking and System Administration
* Master of Management (Information Technology) pic.twitter.com/eieTZN5bRR
— Hagbard (@thekingvest) April 18, 2019
Craig Wright was accused of faking doctoral degree in 2015. According to a statement given by Charles Strut University to Forbes in 2015, Wright was not conferred any PhD. The statement of the University as quoted by the publication reads:
“Mr Wright has not been awarded a PhD from CSU.”
Twitter user @DrFunkenstein6 commented on the timeline of Craig Wright’s doctorate
“Very few people deny that he *currently* has a PhD (though it’s not in Computer Science). He did lie about it back in 2015 a couple times, though.”
Similar information was provided by the University to Mashable, a media organization when the publication approached them for verification.

Update: Australian university says Craig Wright did not complete a PhD as claimed. https://t.co/DmqU0sVlwy pic.twitter.com/AaubGgYD9U
— Mashable (@mashable) December 11, 2015
The University did eventually award Craig Wright with a PhD in Philosophy in 2017, but Wright was recorded in 2015 claiming he had ‘a couple doctorates’. Out the couple mentioned by Wright, one of the doctorates is in Theology. However, the Twitter thread has raised a lot of questions about Wright’s qualifications, let alone him being Satoshi.

Bithumb’s parent company receives $200 million investment from Japan’s ST Blockchain Fund

Bithumb’s parent company, Blockchain Exchange Alliance [BXA], received a massive $200 million in funding during its Series A round. This huge sum was offered by Japan’s ST Blockchain Fund, reported Coin Telegraph. Though based in Japan, ST Blockchain Fund interests investors from around the world, including Europe and the United States.
BXA is raising funds to take Bithumb to the international level. Bithumb, already one of the largest exchanges in South Korea, will expand in international markets with new trading pairs.
BXA’s press release read,
“The fund shared our vision of creating a global digital exchange platform that can efficiently transfer value across borders with lower costs, which was the key rationale behind this investment decision.”
The news of massive funding comes in after Bithumb lost around $13 million in March following a hack. According to reports, this was considered to be an inside job, done to deceive the company. However, in the third-party public audit, Bithumb reassured investors that their funds were in a secure storage.
Bithumb was also hacked in 2018, losing around $30 million. However, the figure was later corrected to $17 million. The investment by ST will be a much-needed impetus to Bithumb, an exchange that has been reeling under major losses. It has been reported that the South Korean exchange reported losses over $180 million since the price of Bitcoin dropped, while it also had to lay off half of its staff last month.
The timing of the investment also falls in line with the rising prices of cryptocurrencies, especially since Bitcoin has finally breached the $5K mark

BitMEX not likely to add another cryptocurrency, CEO Arthur Hayes explains

The cryptocurrency space has been evolving constantly over the years, with development in technology being its main focus. Arthur Hayes, the co-founder and CEO of BitMEX, joined Luke Martin, an analyst to talk about developments in the crypto-space and the future of BitMEX. The co-founder answered the much-asked question regarding the addition of another cryptocurrency to BitMEX, in the interview.
BitMEX is popular among Asian traders and there are numerous new tokens coming out; Luke quizzed Arthur about adding more tokens to BitMEX instead of the current list that has only four cryptocurrencies- Bitcoin [BTC], Bitcoin Cash [BCH], Litecoin [LTC], and XRP. Hayes informed that they would not be adding any cryptocurrency because derivatives required sufficient liquidity in the spot market.
Hayes said,
“So you know, in my, in my opinion, the futures market should always be tighter and trade larger than the underlying of this derivative. And that only happens if you have sufficient liquidity in the spot market.”
Hayes explained that if BitMEX listed a random coin from CoinMarketCap, the market makers would be unable to hedge the risks. Binance has a long list of coins where the market makers want to price a derivative, in such a case, it will spread too wide, which according to the CEO, is terrible for clients. He explained,
“From a client perspective, as a terrible experience, I’m treating a leveraged product that has a wider spread, then the underlying on the spot market and I’m just increasing my risk of getting liquidated. And that’s something that we don’t want to do.”
However, when BitMEX would add a new product, the market makers would be able to make ‘good type prices’ for their clients. The CEO also informed that BitMEX would never have as many coins as Binance due to the same reason.

India’s Payments Corporation considering blockchain technology to strengthen digital transactions

The National Payments Corporation of India [NPCI] is pondering over the implementation of blockchain technology in an effort to strengthen digital transactions in the country, reported Business Today.
This initiative is being promoted by ten banks with backing from the Indian Banks Association [IBA] and it aims to become the “best payment network globally”. It is also an umbrella organization which runs retail payments and settlement systems in India and encompasses 56 national banks as stakeholders. Setup with the guidance and support of the Reserve Bank of India and the IBA, the NPCI will work on developing blockchain technology in the payment field to boost digital transactions.

“NPCI intends to develop a resilient, real time and highly scalable blockchain solution. It is proposed to develop this solution using an open source technology/ framework/solution.”
The publication quoted a report of global consultancy firm PwC, which claimed that India would be one of the world’s blockchain leaders by 2023. Tarun Wig, the co-founder of Innefu Labs, said:
“Blockchain stores information about transactions between users in a way that can be tracked by any user for forever for maximum transparency. This gives visibility which can lead to greater efficiency by automating or confirming transactions and increasing liquidity in the supply chain.”
NPCI has successfully developed the Unified Payments Interface [UPI] payment system and is gaining traction in the country. The total payments shot up in March 2019 as compared to August 2016. The total payments in March were noted to be a whopping Rs 1.33 lakh crore, while in August 2016, it was Rs. 3.1 crore.
In July 2018, major banks from India and other BRICS nation, Brazil, Russia, China, and South Africa, had signed a Memorandum of Understanding for developing distributed ledger technology to enhance the digital economy.

Tron’s Justin Sun reveals Sun Network’s launch date; highlights three phases of DAppchain

The CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation, Justin Sun, announced the launch date for Sun Network testnet on April 8. Sun introduced Sun Network as an additional layer of decentralized architecture, designed to improve the scalability and transaction capacity of the Tron network.
In a recent tweet, Sun elaborated on the same, including the three phases of DAppchain,
“#SUNNetwork is almost here #Dapp sidechains, cross-chain infrastructures and some other expansion projects are coming! #SUNNetwork will further expand the overall capacity of #TRON network, improve the overall TPS and smart contract execution efficiency of #TRON. Stay tuned!”
Phase One: Testnet
Testnet will begin with off-chain confirmations on its sidechain smart contracts and unleash the unlimited transaction ability of Tron. It will also erase doubts concerning the capacity of the network to handle large volumes of transactions on its BitTorrent application. This will be launched on 30 May.
Phase Two: Mainnet Launch 
Phase two entails DApps sidechains, cross-chain infrastructure, and other expansion products. The launch of the mainnet is scheduled for 10 August and will allow community development and participation to further the decentralized extension network.
Phase Three: Optimization 
After the testnet and mainnet launch, the performance of the sidechains would be thoroughly analyzed for the next month, after which the deployment of the sidechains would be facilitated. According to CoinGape, the optimization will be part of a Sun Network update to address run time issues and improve ease of access for users.

XRP army provides support to scammed user; CZ steps in to provide first-hand customer service

A Twitter user @XRP4Fam, on April 6, complained about losing his Bitcoin [BTC] and XRP from his ledger. After his post gained significant traction on social media, the XRP community stepped in to help the user. @XRP4Fam tweeted:
“I just got my XRP and Bitcoin stolen from my ledger… I’m devastated and do not know who to contact. The hacker got access to my phrases and transfers all the crypto to a binance account. Please someone help… @cz_binance @binance @digitalassetbuy @AlexCobb_ @CKJCryptonews”
Binance’s CEO and founder Changpeng Zhao, popularly known as CZ, asked the Twitter user to file a support ticket in an effort to solve the issue. However, the user was left disappointed as the support team could not identify the user who deposited funds to Binance.
That’s when CZ took the matter into his own hands and asked for the user’s ticket number and his seed getting compromised. A private key or string of seed words, also called mnemonic, are like keys to a safe and are generated by entropy, without which no one can steal any funds. @XRP4Fam claimed to have stored this on a third party note-taking application that was hacked. The user stated,
“The seed was store on my third party note taking app. My phone and computer did not get hacked but the note taking app probably go hacked on a web based attack or some method that was involved in information leak. My phone wasnt compromised neither my computer.”
Tiffany Hayden, a prominent proponent in the XRP community, jumped to impart what XRPTrump, another XRP proponent, believed to be the ideal way to store keys. She said,
“@XRPTrump is on hiatus, but he often makes the argument that exchanges are a better choice for many people because holding your own keys *also* comes with risk. It’s the only HUGE difference of opinion that he and I have but after watching you and this, I see his point now.”
@XRP4Fam has not informed the community about any update on the lost funds.

The cryptocurrency market has been consistently spiking over the past week, reversing the long bearish trend into a bullish one. Tron [TRX] lost its place in the top 10 cryptocurrencies list on CoinMarketCap, and laid low even when the collective market was surging.

Litecoin [LTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] surge by over 6% following announcement of first halving

The cryptocurrency market had taken many major coins on a roller coaster ride over the past week as almost all coins registered gains following the resurgence of Bitcoin.

According to a report by Ethereum World News, LTC hiked by more than 200% in 2019 and the last low of LTC was noted to be in December 2018. This percentage increase could probably see another push as and when the LTC halving takes place.
Bitcoin Cash [BCH]

The news of halving has managed to spike the prices of BCH too, and it is speculated that this rise would continue. However, it’s in the nature of the cryptocurrency market to change the trends and undergo strong corrections.
