Stockholm will host the first large conference on cryptocurrency and blockchain

The event is a part of Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference, which is the first and the largest network of crypto conferences in Europe. Organizer is Smile-Expo that holds similar events in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Russia and Ukraine.

Key topics include implementation of blockchain technology in business, legal regulation of cryptocurrencies (practices of various jurisdictions), increase of living standards using new technologies, development of smart contracts in the decentralized economy.

Special attention will be paid to the blockchain development in FinTech. Participants will analyze already existing blockchain-based projects in the banking sector: there will be a lot of analytics and discussions.

In autumn 2016, the Central Bank of the country announced its plans for the development of a national crypto currency. These plans may be implemented in two years. The Swedes use traditional money more rarely: since 2009 the amount of coins and cash i

easyMINE: The First Intelligent Mine Management Platform

The easyMINE mine management platform promises to effectively remove the need for human supervision from the cryptocoin mining equation. “What we have in mind reaches far beyond simple automation,” explains Dr. Andrzej Buller, the easyMINE team’s machine learning expert. “Our system will be capable of ‘learning’ from prior ‘experience,’ drawing informed conclusions from accumulated data and applying them to new situations.”

The underlying technology—dubbed the Autonomous Cryptocurrency Mining Controller (ACMC) —will utilize a three-level semi-neural architecture inspired by current research in machine psychodynamics and fuzzy knowledge processing.

The first level of ACMC will be responsible for crash prevention and response. This is intended to minimize unnecessary system downtime by anticipating and averting freezes, resets, and shutdowns. Any action taken at this level can be ov

Is ViaBTC Stay Neutral in the Bitcoin Cash Debate?

 A fork of bitcoin that would create a new network with new rules, Bitcoin Cash is notable in its rejection of code changes favored by other developers to boost the network’s transaction capacity.

But what separates the project from any other bitcoin fork is that Bitcoin Cash will share a transaction history with the original blockchain, dating back to the network’s inception. As opposed to creating its own tokens in, say, an ICO, everyone who owns any of the more than 16.5 million bitcoins in existence will have an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash if it’s created.
While this may sound like just another proposal (and it is one of a very large number introduced in the scaling debate of late), Bitcoin Cash took a not

CoinDirect’s Drive to Decentralize the Gambling Industry

CoinDirect aims to help existing casino networks save millions, as their solution offers complete transparency, reducing compliance costs and the need for regular auditing. Other main advantages of the platform include instant transactions, direct money transfers from player to player, no risk of frozen funds by the casino and very low gambling fees.

Taking an example of Texas Hold ‘em Poker, CoinDirect illustrates how the efficiency of their platform compared to traditional gambling. First of all, there is no need for deposits for any of the players, as long as they have some bitcoins in their wallet. Thanks to the blockchain network, player balances are visible for all to see and cannot be altered. Bets are monitored on the open source platform to ensure that players can bet with funds they have. After the game has ended, the player with the winning hand will receive bitcoin from other players and once nodes in the network confirm a successfu

CEO of BTC-E.com Alexander Vinnik charged over $4 billion bitcoin laundering scheme

The US Department of Justice (DoJ) has charged a Russian Bitcoin exchange operator with 17 counts of laundering up to $4 billion since 2011. Alexander Vinnik was arrested earlier this week by Greek police, and shortly afterwards, security firm Wizsec identified him as a prime laundering suspect in the infamous $480 million Mt. Gox hack. “BTC-e was an international money-laundering scheme that, by virtue of its business model, catered to criminals — and to cyber criminals in part

House Token ICO – The world’s first house bought with Ethereum

If this ICO is successful, a family will finally have their own home.
That family will fill the house with appliances, furniture, electronics and a two year old human. Maybe even a dog.

Food, Water, Shelter, Statue?

We all need those first three things.
In the unlikely event this ICO actually takes off, we will get a super statue of the Ethereum logo in the front yard.

Token Value

As for the actual House Token you’ll receive to your Ethereum address, we will do all the things required to get it listed on exchanges. As for it’s worth, that is up to the market to decide.

John McAfee Claims Bitcoin Will be Worth $500,000 in Three Years

As a cybersecurity and software pioneer, McAfee is a name known inside and outside of the digital currency space. Last year the former programmer for NASA stated that he got involved with the digital currency because it will eventually become ‘the standard for the world.’

Now, though, in what may have been a marketing tactic designed to grab the community’s attention, McAfee took to social media to predict what he thinks bitcoin’s worth will be in three years time.

He then went so far as to predict that the currency could even reach as much as $2.6 million in the same time frame.

Enterprise Ethereum Alliance adds an Indian Government to 150+ Members

Founded by an initial 30 members in February 2016, the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) is a working group of companies, organizations and Ethereum development startups aiming to leverage open-source Ethereum technology for enterprise blockchain solutions.

In May, the EEA added 86 new members to the original founding members to see its membership ranks swell to 116, a number closer to the open-source Hyperledger Project led by the Linux Foundation.

With its latest announcement, the EEA is laying claim to being the ‘world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative’ with a number of noteworthy new members from a number of sectors across banking, healthcare, energy and pharma. A standout, however, is the government of Andhra Pradesh, a southern Indian state known for its technology-forward agenda.

What else is needed before SegWit goes live?

Bitcoin is on the road to increasing its capacity – but it’s not there yet. Despite the claim bitcoin has been upgraded to support Segregated Witness-style transactions, there are more steps that need to occur before its distributed network can process additional data. In fact, due to the complexities of keeping bitcoin’s distributed network in unison, the change might not take hold until late August.
That said, with BIP 91 activated, bitcoin is now headed down a path toward that possible outcome.
In context, this means that BIP 148, a proposal that seeks to upgrade the
