Today we have a pretty cool and amazing set of cryptocurrency news to share with you. If you want to hear all about it, please make sure you stay right until the very end!
Now once again, this week we are giving away $70 worth of Ripple’s XRP Tokens. All you need to do is to like, comment, and subscribe, and you can go in the draw to win!!
So let’s look at the market. As you guys can see it’s a nice, lush and green market today. Bitcoin is increasing by 3.9%, Ethereum’s Ether is growing by 4.65% and XRP is also increasing by 1.66%. Now moving onto the top 20 market. Looks like there is also a pretty green market here with no major increases or decreases across the board.
First up, according to Coindesk, looks like CCN is shutting down after the major Google Search Update. The site was experiencing a 71% fall in mobile traffic because of a recent update to Google’s search ranking.
As you guys can see here, this is what happened to CCN’s visibility index after Google’s June 2019 Core Update. But it wasn’t just CCN who was affected.
Borchgrevnik then added that “While CCN is unbiased as a news site- meaning no political agenda from the editorial board - we have allowed all sort of opinions from journalists and guest writers. ...Bitcoin is, or at least was supposed to be DECENTRALIZED. We are true to the crypto community with our slogan. We are anti-elite. We are anti-centralization.”
Now moving on, according to CoinTelegraph we have Target, the US Retailer unveiling their open source blockchain technology used for the supply chain. Their blog post mentioned that Target ran a pilot test using blockchain technology to certify its paper products along the supply chain back in 2018. The code used in the test was open source and on Github as ConsenSource for roughly about 2 months ago.
Moving on. Target isn’t the only company keen to go blockchain. Looks like the research organization Data foundation and Booz Allen Hamilton an IT firm, have looked at where and how the United States can implement blockchain technology.
Next up we have Cybercriminals and how they are using obfuscation trick to install crypto mining malware on people’s computers. According to Cointelegraph, it looks like the hackers have been exploiting and vulnerability in the Oracle WebLogic server. They have managed to get into the system to install Monero mining malware while using certificate files as an obfuscation trick. It’s unfortunate that these cases of crypto jacking are back.
And finally, the last news item for today. According to TrustNodes, looks like Ethereum Starks Scalability solution with 550 transactions per second launches on Testnet. This is great news for the Ethereum community since it’s a solution that can increase Ethereum’s capacity through the use of starks. This solution has been launched on the test net by 0x, the decentralized exchanges (dex) protocol.
So guys, what are your thought on everything?
Are you sad to see CCN go?
But are you excited to see Target and potentially the US government jump into blockchain tech?
What about the crypto jacking situation? Are you surprised?
And finally, what do you think about Ethereum Staks Scalability solution?
