Amberdata improves support for multiple blockchains on the launch of API V2 » CryptoNinjas
Amberdata, a crypto and blockchain data platform, has announced the release of Version 2 of its API tool. The new version brings updates to data, and supports many more data sets coming in 2020. API Version 2 has been rebuilt to be faster, deeper in breadth and adds flexibility for all the data users have requested.
The platform has been supporting multiple blockchains for a while. Yet by adding new chains, the first version of the API could not handle all the features unique to different blockchains. To properly manage features, the core needed updates for: UTXO Data Models, Multiple To/From Accounts, Verification Proof Data, Digital Assets Metadata & References.
List of breaking changes that occur in API Version 2:
- UTXO – To support Bitcoin, Litecoin, Zcash, Bitcoin Cash & Bitcoin SV, Amberdata has added core UTXO data sets in API responses.
- To/From Accounts – Some blockchains support multiple from or to accounts within a single transaction. To support this, all endpoints have been changed involving accounts to use array syntax.
- Metadata – The Amberdata API now supports lots of metadata specific to each feature represented in different blockchains. This is a new object that supports things such as: raw serialized data, custom smart contract fields, validation data fields and more.
Current plans call for V1 of the API to be deprecated by February 28th, 2020.

Despite markets all over the world facing ever-worsening economic troubles amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it seems as though the crypto industry has been able to weather the storm, at least thus far. In this regard, Binance — the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange — has recently reached an agreement to acquire CoinMarketCap, one of the most prominent crypto data websites. The official announcement was made by both companies on April 2, with Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao telling Cointelegraph that CMC and Binance have from the very start been working to make the crypto ecosystem more accessible to people all over the world. Additionally, he also believes that this latest deal will help the two companies build on each other’s strengths, as well as make the industry more transparent and approachable. Zhao further pointed out that his team had been in discussions with CMC for a few months and that he could not comment on the financial aspect of the deal since it has been legally secured using a non-disclosure agreement. With that being said, it is rumored that the buyout…Apr 4, 2020
While the current climate seems uneasy for all cryptocurrency businesses, some of them have to deal with extra difficulties. Earlier this month, investors filed a class-action lawsuit against Canaan, a Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency mining hardware producer. The case is largely based on a February report submitted by an analysis organization called Marcus Aurelius Value, which argued that the mining firm has made misleading statements regarding its financial health. The second-largest Bitcoin mining operation is in trouble Canaan is considered to be the second-largest Bitcoin (BTC) mining machine manufacturer in the world. The firm was established in 2013 by Nangeng Zhang, also known as “Pumpkin Zhang.” Earlier that year, his team allegedly engineered and produced one of the first cryptocurrency mining devices based on ASIC technology. Being considerably louder and more power-consuming than amateur mining setups based on graphics processing units, ASIC rigs are purpose-built to mine Bitcoin on an industrial scale. In turn, ASIC machines have turned Bitcoin mining into a capital-intensive business run by a limited pool of players. Canaan was also the first crypto mining company to pierce the…Mar 15, 2020

Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Bitcoin [BTC] price took another bearish turn this weekend as price broke below $8000 once again. On popular crypto-exchanges like Bitfinex, Coinbase, and so on, it occurred around six times in the last ten days. However, the same was not reflected on CoinMarketCap as the price trade about $100 higher than the mean on most exchanges. While it is not a rare occurrence for CMC to show different aggregate prices, but the variation is significant at the moment.

Ethereum (ETH) has finally run into the 200-day exponential moving average against Bitcoin (BTC) and successfully tested it. In fact, the daily chart for ETH/BTC shows the pair trading above it at the moment. However, we can see what Ethereum (ETH) stands to lose against Bitcoin (BTC) in the days and weeks ahead should it begin another downtrend which we expect it to. If Ethereum (ETH) breaks this downtrend against Bitcoin (BTC) and does not decline below the 200-day moving average, then this would have been it for the bear market and we would be looking at the beginning of a new bullish cycle. So far, that does not seem to be the case. We have seen ETH/BTC break above the 200-day moving average before with no follow through. The same thing seems to be happening again. There is one thing similar in all of such moves and that is a constant pumping of the price with little to no retracements. This is not what organic growth looks like and no matter how hard the whales and market makers try;…Feb 7, 2020
America has risen, and with it, bitcoin too. Up by around $700 since Thursday to now $7,200. Eth is up too, rising by 7% to above $180, its highest level since martial law was imposed on Milan in early March.Bitcoin rises, April 2020 A big contributor to this rise is the endless money printing, but another contributor may be protests sweeping America against the endless lockdowns. There have been protests in Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Utah, Virginia and Florida. Demonstrations are scheduled for Pennsylvania, Washington, New York, Maryland, and other states. Donald Trump, the president of the United States, cheered them on in a series of tweets that said Liberate [state]. In Wisconsins even the Sherif has revolted against endless lockdowns, stating according to local media: “I cannot in good faith participate in the destruction of Racine County businesses or interfere in the freedoms granted to all of us by our Constitution. We will leave the enforcement of public health orders to the health department experts.” Lawsuits are flying in USA. Some are directed personally against “experts” in…Apr 18, 2020
A Trump Official Tried to Fast-Track Funding for His Friend’s Unproven COVID-19 “Treatment,” Whistleblower Says |
by Lisa Song ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that investigates abuses of power. Sign up to receive our biggest stories as soon as they’re published. Last November, Rick Bright, then the director of a federal office that approves funding for medical emergencies, sat in on a meeting between his boss and two men — a pharmaceutical and biotech consultant and an Emory University professor — seeking millions of dollars for an unproven drug. Bright wrote in a whistleblower complaint filed last week that he was wary as professor George Painter and consultant John Clerici described the drug “as a ‘cure all’ for influenza, Ebola, and nearly every other virus.” The team came back in February with an updated pitch after the coronavirus outbreak, suggesting its antiviral medication could be a treatment for COVID-19. Painter, a pharmacology professor and CEO of a nonprofit biotech company, had already received $30 million from the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense for small-scale clinical trials. But as Bright described in his complaint, Painter sought more money from Bright’s office, the Biomedical…May 15, 2020
Bitcoin (BTC) faced a serious downturn this week, shedding more positions from above $9,500. Now, the leading coin is fighting for key support levels, in case it breaks down closer to the low $8,000s. Bitcoin Address Data Suggest Strong Support Levels But before that, based on wallets acquired at various price levels, bitcoin must break several quite strong support levels. Analysis for wallets in the money and out of it shows BTC has a high chance of bouncing from the $8,100 as a local low to the recent downturn. Bitcoin bounced on Friday, moving to $8,659.07 after dipping twice to the $8,500 tier. At these price levels, the accounts in the money and out of the money are pretty well balanced. The latest IntoTheBlock report shows that bitcoin may put up a serious fight around the $8,600 to $8,900 level, where 873,000 addresses are holding onto 643,000 BTC. If that level breaks through, there are other signs of possible support levels between $8,100 and $8,300. At that area, defence may come from an even larger group of 810,000 holders, who…Feb 28, 2020
