Major Korean Banks Back Bitcoin Startup Coinplug’s $6.4 Million Round Coinplug, one of the earliest Bitcoin exchange, wallet and payment startups in South Korea, has raised 7.5 billion won, or $6.4 million, from venture arms of major local financial institutions. The funding came from KB Investment, a VC unit of the KB Financial Group, one of the largest banking institutions in Korea; Mirae Asset Venture Investment, a listed subsidiary of investment bank and securities broker Mirae Asset Daewoo; as well as private equity and VC firm Smilegate Investment. With the new equity financing, Coinplug said it would be focusing on decentralized identification technologies, an area that has drawn significant interest from the Korean government and major banks in the country.

Yesterday, there was a sharp decline in bitcoin below the $7,800 support area against the US Dollar. As a result, there was a significant drop in BTC price below the main $7,500 support area.
Moreover, there was a close below $7,800 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price traded close to $7,300 and formed a new monthly low at $7,302. It is currently consolidating losses and is trading above the $7,400 level.
On the upside, there are many key resistances for buyers near the $7,500 and $7,600 levels. Additionally, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $8,327 high to $7,302 low is also near the $7,540 level.
More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $7,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is a break above the trend line, the price could face resistance near the $7,600 level.

AMA Answers Week 2 - 02.06.18

https://preview.redd.it/kq0kp84qci111.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0815fcd4c24810d619f71cbc9cce771b47e7f6dc
This week our offline AMA is back! We had to postpone this last AMA due to the busy schedule of the aelf team with the blockchain week in NY!
I can’t start this off without sharing one of my favourite submissions:
I have no questions. I just want to say ‘I love you’! – Tuan Dau Dinh
This comment seems to resonate throughout the community and shows the support that has grown behind this project.
As I’m sure you could imagine this made it difficult to pick the top 10 questions and we know there are some great questions we have not answers this week! But we have done our best and below are our answers to the questions selected for this week.
1) If you had one sentence to explain Aelf to someone who doesn't even understand the basics blockchain technology, how would you do it? - Mappinus
Every city has a Central Business District (CBD) to support all the businesses running the city. aelf is creating a CBD for blockchain, but it won't have traffic jams (Congestion - Sidechains), it won't run out of space (Scalability - Cloud Nodes) and it will never have outdated technology (Ever Evolving - All Consensus' accepted)... Oh and the people vote for what gets put in the CBD to best suit everyone (DPoS).
2) I noticed a lot of these next-gen platforms are working on Speed and Scalable. How is aelf addressing the issue of Speed? Other than just the issue of congestion. Transactions per second? - Andrae
The whole team have a focus on performance/scalability in general so everything is being built with that in mind. I can't talk about the TPS at this point in time, we will be able to disclose more information closer to testnet.
3) I am wanting to know could you all actually show us how to run a program on the block chain and can anyone run a program on aelf’s block chain or do they have to get approval thanks? - Blu
This can be addressed when the testnet is released in Q3 2018
4) If a company wanted to have transaction speeds of 5,000 to 50,000 transactions per second, how would aelf be able to accommodate this type of speed on a side chain? - Andrae
By allowing a sidechain to utilise the resources of the main chain and cloud nodes, speed will be maximised as it will no longer be dependent on the slowest computer (node), in other words there will no longer be a weakest link. In addition to this, by keeping each sidechain separate, we can ensure no congestion from one project will affect any other sidechains. Should the company want to secure their own processing capacity to guarantee a certain TPS at all times, it could create its own sidechain, restrict the access to other users and delegate its own nodes, thereby creating a public internal sidechain. The nodes they delegate will have to meet their processing power requirements in this case, and the cost would be higher as these nodes will serve limited number of users, but will ensure a consistent access and performance for all users of that sidechain.
5) Tell about your plans for the near future. Maybe couple of years? - Nikita
For 2018, aelf will focus on developing the infrastructure. With the release of the testnet, aelf will actively be working on business development, attracting companies and developers to try out the testnet. In 2019, when the Mainnet comes live, aelf will work with corporations of various sizes to help implement blockchain into their networks with the help of and as a part of the Innovation Alliance. We believe that 2019 will be an exciting year for the blockchain industry as a whole. Solid use cases will manifest and aelf hopes to be at the forefront of the movement.
6) what is his future aelf vision? and what will be done for aelf to have a bigger market? – Alif Budiawan
Aelf's prime objective, vision and goal is the commercialization of blockchain. We want to create a platform that can provide the power and the flexibility as a blockchain network, such that companies can implement and deploy blockchain with greater ease and at lower risk.
7) Does AELF consider the Scalability of Bitcoin transactions to be a serious problem? If yes, does AELF have a solution to this problem in the future? - Jack
Yes, aelf is trying to solve exactly this limitation. The current blockchain technology uses linear processing with low transaction speed and limited scalability, which result in high gas fees and time to confirm transactions. aelf proposes a solution to optimize the performance. Each aelf node can be a cluster of computers working together under a parallel processing algorithm creating a system that is easily scalable and more powerful than conventional single computer nodes. The Main Chain adopts DPoS consensus protocol to ensure high TPS and predictability of Block formation.
8) If I want to start a crypto exchange, how can you help me with technology? – Prateek Sharma
There shouldn't be any reason this can't happen on the aelf network. Our Development team can discuss the specific details of this closer to testnet release in Q3 2018.
9) Will blockchain technology help create a fairer society? – Lee Brennan
Blockchain indeed is here to help create a fairer society. First of all, blockchain allows asset ownership and transactions to be conducted via a trust-less environment, eliminating the risk of single party wrongdoing. Secondly, blockchain allows contributors from the globe to participate and rewards are automatically distributed based on smart contract. This significantly reduces cheating in wealth distribution. With all these attributes, people could use Blockchain to ensure their wealth will not be taken/misused by others, and their honest behaviour and efforts will be fairly rewarded by the system.
10) Can I have an aelf shirt? - Sam
We are exploring merchandising options. Keep your eye out as we will be updating you all soon!
Since there were so many great questions, we felt there were too many that shouldn’t be left out. As such we have something special for you all. We have selected 2 questions to be listed in our surprise section. These questions will remain unanswered until next week’s post. But the twist is that we want you to comment with what you think the correct/best answers are. The 5 closest responses to the actual correct answers will be added into the next week’s post (& awarded with 1 or 2 aelf tokens – if approved by team).

But before we move onto these questions we need to present the answers for the previous AMA Interactive Episode questions! Thebeatminer and D4Thule had some great guesses to these questions. There were 3 questions listed:

Hi Bitcoiners!
I’m back with the tenth monthly Bitcoin news recap. Last month I couldn’t post as I was travelling a lot and missed a few days of news. Normally seen that's not a problem, but Reddit decided to discontinue historical searches for specific timeframes. I know, I was sad too.
Anyways for those unfamiliar with the recaps, each day I pick out the most popularelevant/interesting stories in bitcoin and save them. At the end of the month I release them in one batch, to give you a quick (but not necessarily the best) overview of what happened in bitcoin over the past month.
Now I know the price went absolutely ?? this month, but there’s a lot more going on in the space than that!
You can see recaps of the previous months on Bitcoinsnippets.com
A recap of Bitcoin in October 2017
Thanks everyone for fighting the good fight for Bitcoin these past few months. Just one more month and we'll h...

World’s first bitcoin mining IPO falls short

World’s first bitcoin mining IPO falls short
The world's first fundraising for an initial public offering (IPO) of a company that "mines" bitcoins has raised 5.9 million Australian dollars ($4.2 million) — far off its target of 20 million Australian dollars. The Bitcoin Group, based in Melbourne, Australia, announced on Tuesday that it had raised 5,927,168.40 Australian dollars in a bookbuild for its listing on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX).
Although the amount raised was less than a third of the target, Bitcoin Group CEO Sam Lee said it was a "solid result." "It is sufficient for the company to execute its current strategy of expanding our footprint through acquiring new mining equipment," he told CNBC on Tuesday.

Problem Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network In order Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network to become the mainstream used in global transactions, ubiquitous and efficient, it will require a critical mass of users. At the same time, millions of people around the world do not participate in the financial system because of restricting access by starting capital. With Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network activation, 2 interlocking sets of problems will be resolved: - growing inequality in access by those at the bottom to the most basic goods and services; - growing disillusion with public programs designed to address these problems. Mark Zuckerberg argues that automation and robotisation also will take a lot of jobs in the years to come, and that basic income in USA is especially needed because of that. Nathan Schneider, Vice magazine journalist, has also highlighted the fact that several in the "tech elite" nowadays are quite pro-basic income. The need for a universal basic income is becoming more apparent as the world makes strides in technological advancement. The impending damage that will be dealt with the economy will be far reaching and affect many people. With a rising unemployment rate, poverty stricken communities will become more impoverished and cause a decline in livelihood worldwide.
Solution Bitcoin™️ | Personal Finance Exchange System Victor Michelle estimates that Satoshi Nakamoto support a Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network large enough & financial source to paying the basic income may come from Bitcoin™️ Miners & Bitcoin™️ Transaction Fees. Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network is a form of social security in which all users receive a regular, unconditional sum of Bitcoin™️ (B.TM), independent of any other income. Basic income which is financed by the Bitcoin™️ CellPhoneMiners all over the World (social dividend, also known as users dividend) are major components in many proposed models of market socialism. Basic income schemes have also been promoted within the context of capitalist systems, where they would be financed through various forms of taxation. Prominent advocates of the basic income concept include Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, André Gorz, Ailsa McKay, Guy Standing, Karl Widerquist, Hillel Steiner, Peter Vallentyne and Philippe Van Parijs. Bitcoin™️ Community aim at using goods and services within the Personal Finance Exchange System and countering inequality by giving everyone the chance to get involved in financial system. Personal Finance Exchange System based on Blockchain & allows Bitcoin™️ Community to buy and sell goods and services. It is international in scope since it uses Bitcoin™️ based on growing cryptocurrency users, so, in 2020 the system may handle much of international world private commercial activity and uses Personal Finance Exchange System to serve as an international exchange system and as a Marketplace. We suggest Blockchain is a means of empowerment for all people. An advantage cited is that a destitute person can begin trading, since it does not require such a person to first have an acceptable credit history or credit score. Regardless of a person's financial situation, each person's new contributions have exchangeable value based on the worthiness of their contribution. We claime that the Bitcoin™️ (B.TM) comes into existence only when a trade happens and, as a result, there is no risk of inflation or deflation since the system is transparent for all Bitcoin™️ users.
Social Significance We Bring People in Blockchain The key concept of the Blockchain economy is that human capital can be treated as business product, as educational and innovative intellectual products and services can be exported for a high value return. The key component of a Blockchain economy is a greater reliance on intellectual capabilities than on physical inputs or natural resources. It is personal asset based approach, which focuses on the contributions towards their communities that everyone can make. The Bitcoin™️ economy effect using appropriate technology and methods, virtual marketplaces and virtual organizations that offer benefits of speed, agility, round the clock operation and global reach can be created. These characteristics require new ideas and approaches by Blockchain users. Digital economy has manifold forms in which it may appear and extend radically, creating a pattern in which even private/personal currency will be recognized and identified as a commodity. Personal Finance Exchange System based on Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network could rebuild the infrastructure of trust and caring that can strength communities and would enable individuals and communities to become more self-sufficient, to insulate themselves from the vagaries of politics and to tap the capacity of individuals.
Commercial Significance Invest in Human Development Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network allows for economic growth. People may decide to invest in themselves to earn higher degrees and get interesting and well-paid jobs that, in turn, could trigger growth: Digital private assets; Cryptocurrency market capitalization; Crypto liquidity; International crypto cooperation; Freedom of investments & Individual’s free access to the capital market;
Technical Bitcoin™️ Payments The technology requirements for the Personal Finance Exchange System must be able to disseminate a unified process by which a working method may converge scientific and technology solutions, and organizational solutions. Bitcoin™️ is tax-exempt and uses as a means in Personal Finance Exchange System. Bitcoin™️ Community encouraging exchange service, resist inflation, avoid hoarding, enable trade, and encourage cooperation among Stock Exchanges. Personal Finance Exchange System generates tangible and intangible values. The global economy is in transition to a Blockchain economy, as an extension of an information society led by innovations. The transition requires that the rules and practices that determined success in the industrial economy need rewriting in an interconnected, globalized economy where Bitcoin™️ Community's resources such as trade secrets and expertise are as critical as other economic resources.
Conclusion Global Social Economic System Blockchain economy is also seen as the latest stage of development in global economic restructuring. Thus far, the developed world has transitioned from an agricultural economy to industrial economy, post-industrial/mass production economy to digital economy (largely the technology/human capital sector). That is why we believe that the next evolutionary step is the Personal Finance Exchange System, based on Basic Income Bitcoin™️ Network, where the Bitcoin™️ (B.TM) is now being shared among and across various networks for the benefit of all network members, to gain economic of scale in a wider, more open scale the gradual evolution of network economy would create a well interconnected economic order. Bitcoin™️ Community becomes much easier to access results of networked data-bases which promote online interaction between users and producers. Personal Finance Exchange System and connectivity developments such as the Internet bring the global village ever nearer. As a result, goods and services can be developed, bought, sold, and in many cases even delivered over electronic networks. It can be argued that the digital economy differs from the traditional economy in several key respects: the economics are not of scarcity, but rather of abundance. Unlike most resources that are depleted when used, Blockchain economy can be amplified, where Bitcoin™️ (B.TM) actually grow through iOS & Android Applications.

Fraudsters and losers: Five greatest cryptocurrency flops in history

Bankruptcies, lawsuits, thefts and information leaks are inseparable companions of any big business, and cryptocurrencies are no exception. CoinFox recalls the most scandalous failures of the blockchain industry.
Every child learning to walk and run will be falling, and sometimes quite painfully. The teething problems of the rapidly developing cryptocurrency industry – gullibility, fecklessness, incompetence, overestimation – resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. As we will see, even successful and reputable startups are not immune from this risk.
Mt. Gox: A company that nearly buried bitcoin
The Japan-registered exchange used to be the biggest online platform for BTC/USD operations, brought to the world in 2009 by Jeb McCaleb as an online marketplace for wizard-themed playing cards (its name stands for “Magic: the Gathering Online Exchange”). Just like an evil wizard, it made a vast sum of money disappear without a trace. Some of its clients lost a fortune.
The trading platform, which in 2013 processed 70% of all bitcoin operations, collapsed due to a flaw in its code that allowed hackers to steal digital currency from customer accounts. Over 2011- 2014, the violators managed to drain 744,408 bitcoins, including 100,000 belonging to the company itself. At that moment, the loss was estimated at over $450 mln and amounted to 7% of all bitcoins in circulation.
The company admitted the losses in February 2014. And it came as little surprise to people who had knowledge of the Tokyo-based company’s inner work. “Gox is the worst-run business in the history of the world,” said bitcoin advocate Roger Ver, who tried to help the company to sort out an earlier hack, which also resulted in a large bitcoin leakage. No wonder, the Wired magazine ruthlessly criticised Mt. Gox as a “messy combination of poor management, neglect, and raw inexperience.”
So frustrating was the money loss and so vast was the scale of the scandal that many people believed it would undermine public trust forever and drive cryptocurrencies totally beyond the law. Up until the crisis, bitcoin had been gradually gaining world acceptance, and the damage to its reputation could have destroyed it for good.
It is notable that on 20 March 2014, Mt. Gox declared it “found” 200,000 bitcoins worth around $116 million in an old digital wallet from 2011. In April, suffering from a lawsuit avalanche, the company that had nearly buried the world’s most popular cryptocurrency gave up its plans to rebuild under bankruptcy protection and asked the Tokyo court to allow its liquidation.
KnCMiner: the short journey “to the skies”
The Swedish company KnCMiner had an extraordinary start. In the beginning, it managed to raise $32 million of investments. Business Insider UK included the miner in the list of top-21 most influential bitcoin companies. In June 2015, KnCMiner implemented the new powerful Solar ASIC that was supposed to boost the efficiency of mining, but that turned out to be useless due to the anticipated bitcoin block reward halving.
“We knew that there were risks related to doing this in Sweden. We aimed for the skies, not to build a mediocre medium sized business. We got big investors on board and took a chance. But it hasn’t paid off,” said CEO Sam Cole.
Early in 2015, a scandal broke out around the quality of KnCMiner’s products and services. According to Swedish media, more than 100 clients accused the company of fraud and sent a collective complaint to Swedish authorities. As the dissatisfied clients claimed, the mining device called Titan did not work well and caused ignition, whereas the company refused to return the money for it. Besides, it was reported that the company refused to communicate with the lawyers that represented the interests of the clients.
“All the while we were having huge problems with their machines (fires, burnt-out cores, random shutdowns, etc.). [At the same time], KnC was making press/Twitter, etc. releases about how happy their customers were with the junk they had sent them,” wrote one of the enraged clients.
The Swedish court ruled in favour of KnCMiner, refusing to satisfy the claim of the applicants, but that did not help the company: due to the abovementioned reasons, the KnC was unable to cover its own expenses. Besides, the lawsuits brought in by its American clients are still being considered by courts in the USA.
Cryptsy: how to lose $6 million
The operation of the cryptocurrency exchange Cryptsy ended in January 2016, also in a flop. According to the company, that was caused by a hacker’s attack that resulted in Cryptsy losing 13,000 bitcoins and almost 300,000 Litecoins (which equalled more than $6 million in January). However, in reality, the theft had happened eighteen months before – on 29 July 2014. The management of the exchange decided not to report the large cryptocurrency leak from the users’ “hot wallets”, hoping to recompense the stolen money with their own reserves.
But the exchange failed to make up for the loss. In October 2015, rumours began to spread regarding the hard financial situation of the platform: users started noticing problems when trying to remove their money from exchange wallets. But Cryptsy CEO Paul Vernon denied any financial difficulties faced by the company.
The exchange blamed the hacking on one of the platform’s developers, Lucky7Coin. However, some of the clients have a different opinion: they suspect the owner Paul Vernon and his ex-wife Lori Ann Nettles of removing the funds and cashing them out. Now they are involved in court proceedings in Florida.
The collective lawsuit to Vernon and his former spouse reads that the money removed from Cryptsy was cashed out and spent to buy a $1.5 mln villa on the Florida coast and an Infinity QX80. A temporary sale ban has been imposed on this property following the investors’ demand.
Bitcoin Foundation: the weakest link
Lost credibility – that is the situation the Bitcoin Foundation ended up in. Initially launched to spread the knowledge of cryptocurrencies and popularise bitcoin, the foundation was supposed to act as a link between the bitcoin community and the conventional industries and governmental bodies. But the practice has shown that companies can perfectly do it on their own without any help, while the fund’s monthly budget, as big as $150,000, would make for a modest crowdfunding campaign of an emerging cryptocurrency startup.
The financial position of the Bitcoin Foundation has got worse during the last eighteen months. First of all, the foundation has lost part of its funds due to the high volatility of bitcoin. Secondly, the inflow of the donations to the not-for-profit organisation by bitcoin companies has considerably dwindled. That happened due to the fund being increasingly accused of inefficient spending of its money. For instance, the community was outraged to learn that Board Member Patrick Murck had spent $12,000 to visit a seminar in London.
In October 2015, at a board meeting, it was announced that the organisation has funds only sufficient to operate until March 2016. The board members had to donate money from their own pocket: the head of the Foundation Bruce Fenton, as well as Board Members Bobby Lee and Brock Pierce, contributed $10,000 each. About $65,000 was also received from a miner who chose to remain unknown.
Still, the foundation has failed to return the main investment – the trust of the industry. The letter Fenton wrote in May in which he tried to encourage Bitcoin Core developers to enhance cooperation with the fund was scorned by the community. The Core team was not convinced either: Peter Todd noted that Bitcoin Foundation is not the organisation that people want to be associated with. “I personally would like to distance myself from it,” he added.
After Bruce Fenton quit his position of CEO, it was occupied by a South African venture investor Llew Claasen. He will have to make a difficult choice: whether to try and return the trust of the industry with more investments, or follow the advice of some bitcoin activists and shut down the organisation.
The DAO: the tragedy of “not-so-smart” contracts
For a long time, the community only preferred to talk about the advantages of decentralisation: resistance to fraudulent schemes, saving on intermediaries, a more transparent governance system where every participant has a voice that will never be ignored in the voting. True democracy.
Now we know what the ticket costs that brings you to this democratic paradise: $60 million. This is the sum lost by The Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (The DAO), albeit not completely, due to a loophole in the platform’s code. Earlier this year The DAO triumphantly raised about $150 million attracting investors by its innovative design.
The smart contract turned out to be not so smart: the fraudster managed to outsmart it and make use of a vulnerability in The DAO’s architecture. On 17 June, 3.6 million ethers were removed from the DAO’s main account, which at that moment equalled $60 million. Formally, though, the thief has done nothing illegal, it was not even a hack: he made use of a legitimate function provided by the smart contract itself.
Now Ethereum developers are hastily proposing various decisions: from “doing nothing” to temporarily freezing all the funds in The DAO (including those rescued and removed to safe accounts) and even calling off transactions in the whole Ethereum network. Although the latter can certainly return the funds, it will give the industry an irreparable reputational blow. One of the advantages of the blockchain – irreversibility – will be discredited. And whenever you allow yourself to pull back and change the name of the game, there will be always room for fraudsters.
