As the end of 2019 draws closure, we are looking back at the most influential news items for the blockchain sector.
5–7 JanuaryETC 51% attack, a nightmare for small altcoins
As a top 20 crypto asset, Ethereum Classic is not seen as an easy target for a 51 percent attack, and yet in early January, its blockchain was successfully hijacked for several days with estimated losses of $1.1 million. This attack has caused many people to panic, as the small PoW consensus coins are vulnerable to 51 attacks. Luckily ETC has not been stunned by the 51 attack, after a short fall in prices, ETC quickly created a new record of the highest price.
16 JanuaryThe only not cool thing about Grin coin is its price
Grin, with the “three nada” label-no ICO, no pre-digging, and no investors, was officially launched on 16 January. “Bitcoin 2.0”, “super privacy coins”… the cryptocurrency community was willing to give it all the good crowns. After the launch of its main network, the price of Grin coin has jumped up and down as was expected. Although Grin has experienced some bad luck as the dropout of its core developer Gary, by launching of the Asic mining machine and the Grin foundation receiving 50 bitcoin donations, this unique project is still motivated to move forward.
FebruaryLightning Network passed the torch all around the world and it is only a beginning
On January 19, 2019, Bitcoinist Hodlonaut began a social experiment dubbed “Lightning Torch” to test the capabilities and UX experience of the Lightning Network. In total, the torch has been a great success. Many people believe that 2019 was the year, when the Lightning Network shined. However, its security and the ease of use were frequently challenged. Not long ago, the Bitfinex exchange announced support for Lightning Network deposits and withdrawals. This is a small step for the exchange but definitely a big step for the Lightning Network.
AprilUSDT is going to die? Nope, it is still safe and sound
New York’s top cop accused USDT’s issuer of participating in a cover-up to hide the loss of about $850 million in client and corporate funds. People have revived doubts about Tether’s claim that each of its so-called stable coins is backed by $1 of assets — a feature that gives the coins a central role in crypto markets around the world. This has made many investors switch their boats to PAX and TUSD. But up to now, dapptotal data shows that USDT still has about 81% market share.
4 JuneJustin stood Warren Buffett out
Justin, Sun Yuchen, officially announced himself the winner of the charity lunch with Warren Buffett, chairman of the holding company Berkshire Hathaway, submitting a record $4.57 million on June, 4.

18 JuneFacebook unveils Libra White Paper
Libra was officially announced by Facebook and 27 global industry giants on June 18, 2019. With such a global attention, Libra has faced strict regulations all around the world and many global central banks have started working on digital currencies, countering Libra.
Over the past six months, after being abandoned by few of its core members of the association, Libra was forced to slow down its pace. However, worth mentioning, because of Libra, blockchain has become the focus of global attention in 2019.
1 JulyPlusToken may be driving down the price of Bitcoin
In July, Chinese media reported that the PlusToken scam attracted over 3 billion worth of cryptocurrency. Six individuals connected to PlusToken were arrested in June. The stolen funds have continued to move through wallets and be cashed out through the independent OTC brokers operating mostly on the Huobi platform. It has been speculated that PlusToken sccammers didn’t just steal $2+ billion worth of cryptocurrency. They may also be driving down the price of bitcoin.
5 AugustThe second halving of Litecoin
Litecoin (LTC) has experienced an event that is designated to happen once in four years: the halving of the block rewards. On Aug. 5, 2019, Litecoin rewards for producing a block were halved from 25 LTC to 12.5 LTC. A co-founder of one of the largest mining pools, F2Pool, stated on Weibo that, given the electricity costs of 0.26 yuan ($0.037) per kilowatt per hour, some mining rigs like L3+ could close their business right away.
23 SeptemberBakkt isn’t the chosen one, but it is growing to be the one
On September 23, silver-spoon-born Bakkt was officially launched. Specialists believed that it is likely to allow more investors and funds to enter the cryptocurrency industry. However, the platform has faced a great failure and only 72 bitcoins were traded on the first day. In early December, its daily transaction volume has quietly climbed to $ 37 million from only 72 bitcoins. Although the data is still relatively small compared to the top exchanges, being a certified platform by the regulatory body helps a lot. Through the continues development, Bakkt may become the influential platform for the Bitcoin pricing power, which will empower the platform with the super power.
25 OctoberXi Jinping Urges Accelerated Blockchain Technology Adoption in China
China’s President Xi Jinping has called for the country to accelerate its adoption of blockchain technologies as a core for innovation. President Xi made the comments at a Politburo Committee session on blockchain technology trends on Oct. 24, stressing that the implementation of integrated blockchain technologies is key in promoting technological innovation and transforming industries.

Mr Wu threatened employees with punishment if they continued to meet or communicate with Mr Zhan or carry out any of his instructions. In the past two months, Wu Jihan offered three tempting and determined mining axes: installment payments, option hedging, and joint mining.
21 NovemberThe call of future-Canaan is listed on NASDAQ
On November 21, Canaan was listed in NASDAQ, commemorating the first share of the blockchain going public. The listing of Canaan was almost the biggest event in the blockchain industry in November. Unfortunately, CAN broke after a short rise of 40%, falling to $4.65 up to now, reaching half of its listed price. However, worth mentioning is that listing of Canaan represents that the traditional financial world has thrown an olive branch on blockchain concept stocks, marking the beginning of the long way to go.

BCAC is the BOSCore core governance community initiated by Node Pacific (Node name BOS Pacific).submitted by nodepacific to BOSCORE [link] [comments]
BCAC does not have arbitration function, does not participate in governance implementation, and only does BOSCore governance training and education, aiming to build BOSCore community consensus.
In order to let the community users better understand BOSCore eco-system, we officially opened the exclusive interviews with BOSCore BPs.
[BCAC interview 26]from BOSCore node stake. Fish
On August 21, 2019, BCAC interviewed the CFO of |stake. Fish in an exclusive interview with the BCAC community.
The following is an excerpt of the highlights of the interview, compiled and published by the BCAC community:
The CFO in charge of marketing and brand operations.Stake. Fish is a globally famous PoS mining pool, which has supported a total of 7 high-quality public chains at present. Cosmos, with the trust from the community, is the first place, and thus the brand of stake.
Stake. Fish was founded in the Autumn of 2018 and has grown to become a leading service provider in the Staking economy.They provide secure and reliable PoS verification services for global blockchain projects and investors.
Moderator: can you introduce yourself?
Now I am the CFO of stake. Fish, and I got in touch with digital currency in June 2017. In July of the same year, I took charge of brand operation and market in wallet sector.I started to be in charge of stake. fish is a semi-old chive. In 2015, I started to invest in stocks.Back into the currency circle, also just for a field to continue when the "leek."My micro blog introduction is [leek], you can follow my Weibo: Zi Yu blockchain.
I am same as many other people, who like to use "leek" ridicule themselves, this self-black way, can comfort a little of my loss of mood.And by the way, you might be wondering, isn't CFO for finance?How do you come out to market?In fact,here F for CFO is F for Fish, which translates to chief Fish officer.
Moderator: what is exactly stake. fish doing?Can you introduce the key members of your team?
Stake. Fish has about 20 members with teams distributed in 10 different time zones.Our founder Wang Chun previously co-founded f2pool, the largest bitcoin and ethereum mine pool.At present, wang chun is building validation nodes based on different PoS networks, hoping to continue to make similar important contributions to the industry in this way in new areas.
Jun Kim, operations manager, is a former economic consultant who specialises in analysing different industries and their evolution.Kris Lucera, director of infrastructure, has 18 years of experience in building and managing secure Internet infrastructure;Dasom Song, marketing director, is the little sister of blockchain web celebrity in South Korea and has rich experience in social media operation.
In general, our teams from all over the world and different fields of expertise have come together to form a multicultural technology company.
(A part of team members of stake.fish)
Moderator: Recently, Staking**, which is the business model under the PoS mechanism, has become a common word.So is Staking the value investment under the tide of PoS mining?**
Categorizing staking as a form of investment is not the right way to view PoS networks.Staking is not an investment vehicle or product but a means to contribute to the safety of the Internet and to protect the general certificate from inflation.Staking is not the same as investing. The concept is different.
Moderator: Staking is generally rewarded because of the inflationary nature of tokens. During the last round of bull and bear trading, many projects have experienced the risk of collapse and depreciation.How to find the right project layout when the market upward channel opens, and exit before the possible downward trend in the future?
Staking is definitely validation, and the rewards of validation are definitely fascinating.Because PoS mine pool is not an investment company, but a professional verification service company.What we need to do is decide which network to set up the validation node on.The process of deciding what network to support depends on a number of factors, three of which are particularly important.
First, we need to make sure that the project does address important issues and will be used by developers and users over the next decade.
Second, its well-documented economics allow us to maintain costs and sustained inputs.
Third, the project team needs to have strong technical strength and good reputation.We don't offer investment advice.People should do their own research and make careful investment decisions when choosing projects.
Moderator: How did you learn about BOSCore and why did you run for BOSCore node?
I have a deep relationship with BOSCore. One of BOSCore's advisers, super jun, is my bole.We used to work together at shinxin, and he was my leader, and I knew some of the developers and community leaders who worked for BOSCore from a very early time, and they were very close friends, and they talked to me about BOSCore from a very early time.
We really began to know BOSCore and decided to run for office in April this year, when we held a meetup with BOSCore in Bangkok, we met up with BOSCore's strength this time!But it didn't go live until this month, and it's been a long time coming.We think BOSCore has a great future and will be widely used by developers and users in the next decade.We were EOS nodes, so deploying BOSCore was a natural progression.
Moderator: What do you think is the biggest advantage of stake.fish?
Our advantages can be summarized into three simple points as below:
The first is stable global services
Teams, verification nodes, and sentinel nodes are distributed around the world.Global round-the-clock monitoring operation, always properly maintain our various verification nodes.Our team members are located in ten time zones, including the United States, Europe, southeast Asia, South Korea and Russia.We are the global village, the real 24-hour online monitoring.
The second is the deep industry foundation
Founder wang chun co-founded F2Pool, the largest integrated mine pool.In PoS field, stake. Fish has always been widely praised in the community, taking the first place in Cosmos node with solid technology and community foundation.At present, BOSCore node is also the first place, thank you for your support.
The third is continuous security
Always putting safety first, Kris, the director of infrastructure, has been working on system architecture and infrastructure security for 18 years and can select the best solutions in the industry to put into practice.
Moderator: What are your current contributions to BOSCore?
We co-organized a community meeting with BOSCore in Bangkok in April at our Bangkok office. , we have been in deep cooperation with BOSCore's community activities. Even the 3s LIB upgraded meeting was hosted by me on behalf of stake. Fish, which you may remember happened several days ago.Of course, the most important thing is to become a stable running node to protect the stable running BOSCore network, which is the most important contribution.
Moderator: How do you plan to do for BOScore in the future?What's the plan?
The community leader of BOSCore has talked with me, and I hope we can continue to cooperate and promote the global activities of BOSCore in the future.What we're doing for BOSCore right now is building communities together.This is very important, because BOSCore is still a baby, it needs more people to protect it care about it.
We also try to put tools that we developed on other chains on BOSCore networks.It takes a little bit of time, but what you can do in the short term is build communities together.
Moderator: What are your Suggestions and expectations for BOSCore ecology?
It is suggested that BOS need be launched on the exchange as early as possible. Now it can only be bought on newdex, which is really inconvenient for ordinary investors and hard core investors are not many.Why we deployed the node for so long, because it was really impossible to buy the BOS.I really look forward to BOSCore bringing real prosperity to Dapp. BOSCore is very fast and hopefully brings revolutionary products, and 3-second irreversible is 50 times faster than EOS network.3 seconds is an understatement, and most of the time it is less than 2 seconds or even 1 second. This is an awesome thing, and I am looking forward to the development of BOSCore in the next ten years.
Staking is just a means of PoS, Staking can form an economic ecology.In this ecosystem, everyone can become a participant, and the most important places to participate are nodes and currency holders.Let's make it easier. Let's call him staking.
Q2: What is the relation between Staking and PoS?
Profit is the means not the end, and Staking is the means not the end of PoS.
Q3:How will the rise of Staking economy affect the industry ecology?
As far as I am concerned, staking economy will become the first choice for most blockchain projects, and PoW needs higher cost to ensure safety.If the PoW algorithm used by the public chain is not unique, the potential risk of being attacked by 51 cannot be ignored.Of course, to exclude bitcoin, bitcoin is the most successful case of PoW.The new public chain adopts PoS, which is much simpler and more efficient.If the PoS network wants to carry out 51 attacks, it needs to buy 51% of the currency. This attack cost is very high, which guarantees the security of the PoS network.

We present to you the report filed by the analysts of our private club for November 26 — December 2, 2018.submitted by Golden_Island_Club to u/Golden_Island_Club [link] [comments]
Key market events in the period for November 26 — December 2, 2018
The last week restored confidence within some of the crypto traders and investors who were starting to get frustrated. BTC price bounced back to $4,200. At the beginning of the week, the total capitalization of the crypto market lost almost $10bn: it dropped from $130 billion to $120 billion, but then it steadily climbed back to $140 billion. Trading volumes amounted to $18–20 billion a day, dropping to $15 billion by the end of the week. The dominance of BTC during the last week varied from 58% to 48% and again to 58%. The price for 1 BTC dropped from $4,058 on Monday to $3,700 and bounced back to $4,150 by the end of the week. Many prophesized the fall to $3,700, reoccurrence of events of 2014 and so on.
Altcoins also dropped in price in the first half of the week, although to a much lesser extent due to being already very close to the lowest possible prices. After the BTC price started rising, the altcoins and coins from the TOP10 followed with a rapid growth. Over the next week, given a relatively stable price of the BTC, the events started to repeat themselves: some of the altcoins showed rapid growth with correction, some, together with the USDT, returned to the position before the last dump, and some grew even more.
The cryptocommunity is polarized: most forecast continued falling to $3,000 or even $1,200–1,500, and very few believe BTC would return to $5,000 or grow higher. Media personas urgently adjusted their forecasts for the end of the year in favor of the downtrend.
Most of those who bought BTC in January have already abandoned the hopes of returning their money. However, we still claim that the market reversal is inevitable. Even states have recognized the existence of cryptocurrencies and are only trying to start regulating them! Not so long ago they threatened to ban them completely! Patience and adding promising coins to the portfolio will bring you huge dividends in the future! Despite the increasingly gloomy sentiments in the community, there is no doubt about it!
3. Changes in the cost and capitalization of the TOP-10 cryptocurrencies in the period from November 26 — December 2, 2018
4. TOP-3 growing coins from the long-term portfolio for November 26 — December 2, 2018 (including portfolio updates)
