AMD Inc.'s (AMD) strong second-quarter earnings report provided additional evidence that Ethereum mining activity has provided a major boost to global GPU sales. But there are already signs that the craze is waning, and that AMD was quite justified in taking a cautious approach to forecasting its mining-related sales for the coming months.

"Miners" of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ether -- the currency linked to the technology known as Ethereum -- verify new transactions involving a given blockchain technology, often while as part of a "pool" of miners that jointly process transactions. The verification process requires performing some complex, computationally-demanding math, and the processing power needed keeps growing as more transactions are verified and more miners join the fray. And assuming one is keeping a mining "rig" running much or all of the day, it's bound to run up a large electricity bill.


After a transaction has been verified, it gets added to a blockchain -- that is, a secure, distributed, transaction ledger featuring a long set of connected digital "blocks." In return for their work, miners are paid a small transaction fee from the parties requesting verification -- offering a larger fee guarantees miners will verify it quickly -- and are given a tiny portion of the new digital "coins" that are issued each day for a particular cryptocurrency. In the case of Ether, about 36,000 new coins (current value of $7.1 million) are issued each day for miners to compete over.

Unlike Bitcoin, which is now mostly mined using specialized chips (ASICs), Ethereum was built from the ground up to be friendly to GPU mining. Moreover, whereas mining Bitcoin and various other blockchain technologies merely involves verifying transactions related to the exchange of a cryptocurrency, Ethereum mining can also involve the verifying of various smart contracts executed by apps supporting the platform. This has led a number of big-name companies, including Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) , JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and Mastercard Inc. (MA) , to back the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, a consortium dedicated to commercializing apps supporting Ethereum.

Mining-related sales of graphics cards running AMD's mid-range Radeon RX desktop GPUs have soared in recent months as Ether prices and transaction activity -- more related to Ether exchanges than smart contracts for now -- took off. Some miners are relying on cards optimized for mining, such as Asus' Mining Series cards, but many are using general-purpose hardware.

Sales of certain mid-range Nvidia Corp. (NVDA) GPUs, such as the GeForce GTX 1060 and 1070, have also gotten a boost. But overall, AMD's cards are more popular with miners. And from a financial standpoint, the fact that AMD's quarterly sales are over 30% lower than Nvidia's means that its top line receives a greater benefit (on a percentage basis) from a given amount of mining-related sales.

Demand among certain large-scale miners still appears to be pretty strong -- especially in places like Russia and China, where lower electricity costs improve mining's economics. A recent Quartz column noted that some large-scale miners are even resorting to leasing Boeing 747s to procure graphics cards.

But it looks as if enthusiasm among small-scale miners has begun declining. Last week, Vice's Jason Cross observed there has been a major uptick in recent weeks in the number of Ethereum mining PC rigs being listed in eBay, as well as in the number of AMD graphics cards being unloaded by miners. "I was going to build a mining rig but realized it was not going to be profitable." one eBay seller offering an AMD RX 580 card told Cross.

Last week, news.Bitcoin.com reported on the cryptocurrency exchange BTC-e announcing how the organization plans to repay customers who lost funds during the trading platform’s recent dealings with the FBI. Since then the exchange has revealed new arrangements which will introduce new tokens called BTCT and offer free trading for that specific market.

On August 14 the cryptocurrency exchange BTC-e revealed new plans to redistribute the funds left on the trading platform after the recent U.S. law enforcement takedown. Last week we detailed that the exchange told all of its customers each one of them will deal with a “haircut loss” and BTC-e would create a new token to pay back the remainder of funds. A “haircut loss” essentially socializes the entire loss of funds among every BTC-e user who held funds on the platform. Basically, the exchange is taking the same path Bitfinex took back in August of 2016, when the Hong Kong-based platform was hacked for millions. Now the exchange has provided customers with a new update stating;

“We [BTC-e] have read feedback about our proposal to handle the recent situation, and we decided to revise our decision in favor of community opinions,” explains BTC-e’s latest post. “We believe that this is a good way out of the situation and is fairer for the holders of cryptocurrency and fiat funds on our exchange. For each currency, a recalculation will be made taking into account the currently available assets. Currently, 55 percent of funds are available, so 55 percent will remain in ‘currency,’ and 45% will be converted to our specific currency ‘token.’ For tokens of all currencies, free trading on a separate page will be opened.”
Quote:
Quote:
You can trade them at any price, but no more than their face value. We pledge to redeem all the tokens. You can also sell your tokens to other users and get currency, or wait and exchange tokens at face value.

BTC-e explains that users will need to comply with AML/KYC guidelines as the exchange will be working with a firm to process user verifications. Last week the exchange detailed that it was in the process of rebranding and relaunching a new cryptocurrency exchange. It’s currently unknown who has partnered with the trading platform or what the exchange will be called.  
The new details also warn of scams and phishing sites pretending to be official BTC-e websites or representatives. The exchange says all of its “official information” can be found on the company’s Twitter page and its official account on the Bitcointalk.org forum.


What do you think about BTC-e’s haircut loss and BTCT token idea? Do you think they will be successful like Bitfinex, and repay their customers back? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Imagine you had money which wasn’t kept in a bank, wasn’t controlled by the government, which you could use anonymously, and which you will never hold.

Would you be willing to use it?

Several internet users already do, so much so that the most popular cryptocurrency, bitcoin, has shot up in value from a few cents in 2009 to $4,114 as of this writing.

While cryptocurrencies like bitcoin seems like an alien concept to many, it’s patterned after how any other currency works. It has a real-world value and this value increases or decreases depending on the market.

James Florentino and Joseph Ross Lee of web development company Merge Commit believes Filipinos can benefit from using it, whether it be in everyday transactions for both the public and private sector.

They share that Filipinos already use it to receive payment from foreign employers while working in the Philippines, especially if you are in the tech industry; to make remittances, or in gambling.

Read on for a quick background on cryptocurrencies, and why they may be the currency of the future.

How did it start?

The first cryptocurrency, bitcoin, first surfaced in 2009, allegedly created by a certain Satoshi Nakamoto. However, no one knows this person’s actual identity, whether they’re a single person or a group.

Mainly, what drove its invention is people who wanted to control money on their own without being beholden to the rules—and fees—of a central authority.

What makes cryptocurrencies different from physical money?

Cryptocurrencies are fully digital, meaning they have no physical form and only exists on the internet. However, they have an exchange rate and can be accessed as a physical currency through certain banks.

The term cryptocurrency means that cryptography is used to protect the digital currency. Information on transactions can only be accessed through math algorithms or keys—more on that later.

One misconception is that cryptocurrencies like bitcoin is data on the internet. It isn’t a file that is being exchanged. The data that is involved is an online global ledger called a block chain, which is accessible online and is updated with every single bitcoin transaction.

How do cryptocurrencies have value?

With physical currencies, we use banks to make transactions, and their job is to keep track of how much money goes in and out, and if there are any fraudulent activities. In that sense, currencies are centralized, since there is one authority keeping tabs on it. It is also through them that the value of a currency is determined, depending on its supply.

Bitcoin, on the other hand, is a decentralized currency. Exchanges are done on a peer-to-peer network, meaning that a person with a bitcoin account (called a wallet) does not need to go through an authority to make a transaction.

How do people know how much bitcoins are being exchanged? Whenever one makes a transaction, they need to announce it to a network with the following information: your account number, the account number of the person you’re sending bitcoins to, and how many bitcoins you’re sending.

Thousands of volunteers around the world note this on ledgers using special computers that can solve a certain type of algorithm to keep the block chain updated.

How can I use cryptocurrencies?

Just like physical currencies, there are multiple kinds of cryptocurrencies in countries or regions. The two most popular ones are bitcoin and ether.

If you want to use bitcoins, you first need to create a wallet on a bitcoin network. Florentino shares that you can download a wallet app software either on your phone on your computer.

Unlike online banking where you can access your account from any device, your wallet only exists on that device. Users even back up the data on a hard drive just in case something happens to the device.

When you have a wallet, you receive two unique keys, one private and one public. The key consists of long alphanumeric symbols only known to you, and they need to be kept in a secure location. Lee shares that some even write them down—a friend lost his once and could never retrieve his wallet and the bitcoins in it.

With the wallet, your identity remains anonymous. To ensure that an actual person is behind the transaction and that you hadn’t hacked an account, the private key acts as your signature. The advantage of it is no one can forge it, unlike with physical currency transactions.

So when you want to send bitcoins, you have to announce to the network that your account number is sending a certain amount to another account number. You enter the private key to act as your signature and send it to the network. Everyone else can use your public key to verify that your private key is correct. If the transaction checks out, then it is added to the block chain.

Is it better than physical money?

Like any currency, cryptocurrencies have their pros and cons.

“Having control of your own money is the number one motivator,” says Florentino. You can trade to anyone in the world for a minimal processing fee, unlike banks or other institutions which constantly charge transaction fees.

It is also safer than money in a bank. Hackers target banks because they know where the money is. Since cryptocurrencies are decentralized, the only way wallets can get hacked is if they have access to the private keys.

According to Florentino, accounts can get hacked through third party subscriptions which people use to store their keys in so that they can access their wallet through multiple devices. However, this is similar to trusting your money to a bank, and this is the only way a hacker will know where they can access cryptocurrencies.

Since cryptocurrencies are still relatively new and are not controlled by authorities, it tends to be extremely volatile.

There are still no concrete regulations on its use. Both Florentino and Lee agree that the likes of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas can regulate it “as long as it [benefits] the users.”

While the anonymity makes transactions faster and safer, they can also be abused, like when hackers demanded payment from HBO through bitcoin for leaked data.

Lee’s tip to using cryptocurrencies is that you shouldn’t be greedy and that you must have a specific purpose for it. For instance, if you want cheaper transfer of funds, you can create a wallet purely for remittances.

What’s next for cryptocurrencies?

“You will need to shut down every computer in the world if you want to stop it,” says Florentino. While it still has its naysayers, the tech industry has already embraced it, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

In fact, Merge Commit is more interested in another type of technology called ethereum, which has more applications than bitcoin. While bitcoin is focused on payment technology, ethereum opens the use of cryptocurrencies in banking and big corporations. In the Philippines, the company is interested for it to be used in the government down to sari-sari stores.

Our next report will tackle how ethereum can make cryptocurrencies more accessible in the real world. JB

Hey! I'm Alexis, a French IT student and Stellar holder since 2k14 8)
I've been working on BlackWallet the last weeks/months, tried many things, started over again and again (dev routine :laughing:) but finally, today, I'm proud to be here, introducing the first, but not least version of BlackWallet!

LINK
------
https://blackwallet.co/


THE PROJECT
------

BlackWallet is a web Stellar Lumens wallet, it was built using javascript & stellar horizon. I like to describe it as an enhanced account viewer as it doesn't require users to create an account - all you need is a private key.
However the stellar's account viewer and blackwallet share no code at all, I built blackwallet from scratch.

My goal is to create an easy but powerful wallet with as many features as possible. The idea is that blackwallet could be used by new users for its simplicity while at the same time being used by the confirmed users for its advanced features.
That's ambitious I know. But I truly believe this can be achieved - at least, I'm doing my best to make it a better wallet everyday.

As I said, blackwallet is a web wallet, but can be used on any device that can execute javascript code - it can also be used as a web-app on iOS (by simply enabling the mobile mode in the settings and adding blackwallet to the screenboard).

I'll post here what I'm working on, the changelogs and what may come in the future - feel free (and I'd love that you do so) to post some feedbacks, ideas, bug reports here, this would really help! Many brains are better than one!

[Image: Bitcoin-Flies-Past-New-All-Time-High-of-...8x1068.png]
The price of bitcoin has climbed to another all time high of $4,000 per BTC across global exchanges on August 12 at approximately 9:40 pm EDT. It was just seven days ago when bitcoin’s price surpassed the $3,000 zone gaining $1,000 in value in just one week.

Bitcoin Gains $1000 in Value Over the Course of One Week
Last week news.Bitcoin.com reported on how bitcoin crossed the $3K price range just five days after the network split. Now a week later the decentralized currency has continued to rise relentlessly and now commands a weighted average of $4140 per BTC at the time of writing. Most of the current demand for bitcoin is stemming from the U.S., Japan, China, South Korea and India, but the cryptocurrency is growing more popular in nearly every country worldwide according to Google Trends. Local Bitcoins volumes are also soaring in every nation state recorded by Coin Dance data.

At this price, bitcoin’s entire market capitalization is roughly $66B and dominates 47 percent of the entire $134B cryptocurrency market cap. Further, since our last price analysis, BTC trade volume has increased from $1.7B to $2.3B over the past 24-hours. The $4K bitcoin price also follows in line with Goldman Sachs recent BTC predictiontwo months ago. Goldman Sachs chief technician, Sheba Jafari said at the time;

Brace Yourselves, Pictures of Bitcoin Price Tickers and the ‘Roller Coaster Guy’ Are Coming

Bitcoin’s value has gained $1000 per BTC over the course of the last week, and it wasn’t so long ago when the price surpassed $2K back in May. At the time bitcoin’s average 24-hour trade volume was roughly $1B, and since then volumes have doubled worldwide. Moreover, when bitcoin’s price reached the $2K milestone the network hashrate was 4.2 exahash per second, and now miners are processing at 6.1 exahash per second.

Of course, cryptocurrency enthusiasts are very pleased with bitcoin’s price performance. Social media and forums are littered with pictures of people’s price tickers at $4K with plenty of funny ‘roller coaster guy’ memes as well. There have been some individuals who feel like these rises are no big deal anymore and new all time highs are just like any other day in bitcoin-land. One forum post nonchalantly says, “Meh — Getting boring, wake me up when we’re at $10k please.”

Where do you see the price going from here? Let us know in the comments below.

Circle Financial Claims to be the ‘Second Largest Crypto Trader Worldwide’
[img=153x0]https://news.bitcoin.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/offer.png[/img]Last December, the company Circle Financial announced that it would stop servicing direct consumer bitcoin trades. The company surprised many bitcoiners as it pivoted its business model to handle cross border cryptocurrency payments and Over the Counter (OTC) trading. According to Circle’s founder, Jeremy Allaire, even though the startup stopped managing direct bitcoin services for consumers, the company still maintains a lion’s share of cryptocurrency trading. When recently asked what Circle has been up to lately Allaire responded by saying;

Quote:
We use bitcoin and ether, and we are the second largest crypto asset trader in the world. We directly trade over $1B in crypto per month.
Circle Provides ‘Significant Scale in OTC Trading With Large Natural Buyers’
[img=300x0]https://news.bitcoin.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/997a57b87f14a97752da2c930c95a2fd-300x200.jpg[/img]
Circle’s CEO Jeremy Allaire says the company is still very much involved with bitcoin.
Circle announced its decision to create, “Spark,” a cross border payment system aimed at citizens in the Philippines and Korea. Alongside this, the company would deal with OTC exchanges between large financial institutions and would eliminate the Circle app’s direct bitcoin purchases and sales. In response to Allaire’s comment about being the second largest crypto trader globally one individual asks, “Where? Your app has forbidden bitcoin for almost a year now.”
“We don’t enable direct consumer trading, we market make on all major exchanges, and provide OTC liquidity services to institutions,” explains the Circle founder.
This July the company announced “free cross border payments” and explained that the company was growing exponentially in Europe. According to the company, over the past few years Circle created a treasury to ensure customers can transfer money instantly. With it’s OTC services, the startup also “actively trades and provides significant market liquidity for bitcoin, ether, xrp and increasingly nascent tokens and ICOs.”

We actively make markets on nearly all major exchanges globally, and provide significant scale in over the counter (OTC) trading with large natural buyers and sellers of crypto assets.
It seems Circle is still very much involved with bitcoin these days and has even opened up to multiple cryptocurrencies as well. Most of Circle’s business model is now working with the decentralized currencies from behind the scenes, and the last few months “growth has been significant,” explains Circle.
What do you think about Circle working behind the scenes with bitcoin and other crypto assets? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
