Blockchain social media platform Steemit joining TRON ecosystem » CryptoNinjas
Steemit, the decentralized blockchain-based social media and blogging platform, today announced a strategic partnership with TRON, one of the largest decentralized ecosystems, providing fast network speed, high throughput stability, and scalability.
TRON and Steemit’s development teams will immediately begin working together to bring Steemit and other Steem blockchain-based DApps to the TRON blockchain and its community of over 20 million users, products, and services.
Steemit is offering a Reddit-alike service built on top of the Steem blockchain. As one of the largest DApps cross all the blockchains, Steemit also claims a thriving community of its own due to a growing number of DApps developed on the Steem blockchain with over 1 million users.
Some popular real-world use cases on Steem blockchain include the Youtube alternative D.Tube, Instagram alternative APPICS, and fitness Dapp Actifit. Steemit was founded by Ned Scott and Dan Larimer in January 2016. Larimer led the engineering of Steemit’s earliest technology and later went on to lead the development of EOS, a highly visible blockchain protocol.
Together, TRON Foundation and Steemit will look to create further value for their users and augment their advancements in decentralized technologies, including moving old STEEM token to a new TRON based STEEM token, giveaways to the existing TRX users with the new TRON based STEEM token, as well as a new accelerator program towards the developer community.
“Steemit is the original conception of forums meeting cryptocurrency to achieve mass adoption — where cryptocurrency could be distributed as easily as “likes” and “upvotes” and this high powered distribution mechanism would bring adoption and appreciation to the currency and the social network. From launching the platform in 2016 on a shoestring budget to today, I’ve enjoyed the development of the platform and the growth of its user base — now I’m excited to see a strategic partner attempt to bring it to new heights.”
– Ned Scott, former CEO, Chairman and Founder of Steemit

BTCS, a digital asset and blockchain technology company, announced today it is expanding its business model with the development of a consumer-facing digital-asset data analytics platform. The goal is to enable users to connect multiple digital asset exchanges and wallets to aggregate portfolio holdings into a single seamless platform to view and analyze performance, risk metrics, and potential tax implications. The initial beta launch of the platform is expected in the second half of 2020. BTCS began the development of its digital asset data analytics platform in mid-2019. Platform Features There are currently more than 250 digital asset exchanges globally and 27 in the US, the majority of which lack detailed performance metrics.

In addition to performance metrics and…Feb 4, 2020

Nano, a Block Lattice-based digital payment protocol designed to be accessible and lightweight, announced recently that its V20 Lydia update is now live. This latest Nano node release brings a new collection of features and improvements. Earlier this month, Nano’s native NANO token also got a lift by getting listed on cryptocurrency exchange Kraken. There were over 200 issues and pull requests as part of this V20 Lydia release, which means lots of improvements were made. The most significant and remarkable additions are summarized below: Migration to .toml Config Files Better legibility, support for comments, and no more having the node write config files are some of the benefits on this update. Any non-default values captured in existing .json files will be migrated and can be exported with a full list of configuration options for use with simple commands. Proof-of-Work Regeneration Outside Development Wallet Any requests to the process RPC will have the new “watch_work” option turned on by default, allowing the node to regenerate Proof-of-Work for blocks even if they are outside of the node’s development wallet. This makes…Nov 19, 2019
A position trader is making noise on social media after tweeting an ultra bullish prediction on bitcoin. The cryptocurrency’s performance in the last two halvings may have prompted the analyst to make a bold call. Other big names in the industry share a more conservative price target. Bitcoin’s recent bullish price action is giving new life to crypto enthusiasts. The crypto token is up over 12% year-to-date. While the gains are not as impressive as they sound, the technical ramifications of bitcoin trading above $8,000 is what’s important.

Blockstack unveiled a novel consensus mechanism for piggyback blockchains called Proof of Transfer (PoX) on Feb. 6. Instead of relying on its own proof of work, miners under PoX commit Bitcoin (BTC), which circulates in the ecosystem. The system will be used in Blockstack’s proposed Stacks 2.0 blockchain, which is set for release later in 2020. The Proof of Transfer mechanism was devised to piggyback on the security of Bitcoin, while allowing complex interactions between stakeholders within the Stacks ecosystem. Cointelegraph spoke with Muneeb Ali, Blockstack’s CEO, to learn more about the proposed mechanism. Not a sidechain There are several existing ways for smaller projects to benefit from the security of a bigger network. One is merged mining, where two blockchains using the same mining algorithm can benefit from the same pool of mining hardware. The miners of the bigger network can contribute to the security of the smaller cousin without calculating any extra hashes. This arrangement exists between Litecoin and Dogecoin, both based on Scrypt. Sidechains present another way of linking two separate networks. The secondary chains are linked…Feb 13, 2020
Coronavirus fears are already hurting China’s economy. The government’s widespread quarantines suggest the problem could be much worse than we think. Chinese social media posts give clues about the true extent of the crisis. The world may be on the verge of the next global pandemic. So far, the Wuhan coronavirus has infected over 2,000 people – killing 56. It’s spreading all over the world with cases in East Asia, Australia, and the United States. As the virus rages on, experts fear that it may mutate into more virulent and deadly forms. The economic impacts are already being felt in China, the epicenter of the outbreak. Chinese President Xi Jinping has issued an urgent address calling for a wide-reaching response to the “grave” situation. He has set up a central committee to manage the outbreak response efforts.

The best (and worst) quotes, adoption and regulation highlights, leading coins, predictions and much more — a week on Cointelegraph in one link. Top Stories This Week Bitcoin price hits $10,000 for the first time in 2020 We’re back in business! Bitcoin has reached five figures for the first time since last October. According to Coin360, BTC is up by more than 40% year to date — 8.3% over the past week. Champagne corks will also be flying in the Ether community, as the coin is up 21% to near $230 — a new 2020 high. But as the world’s biggest cryptocurrency returns to five figures, some believe there’s increasing potential for Bitcoin to lose value in the short term. Alameda Research co-founder Sam Bankman-Fried believes BTC may only continue appreciating if the coronavirus crisis worsens — and predicts it will slip back to $6,800 without “continued unrest.” Have global events been responsible for Bitcoin’s remarkable start to 2020? U.S. Fed is…Feb 10, 2020
Cryptocurrency has long been something given away. In fact, the first Bitcoin (no, not a whole coin) this writer ever received was through a BTC faucet, which if you remember are these services that play ads and grant viewers a few satoshis here or there, often $0.25 or so. According to a top philanthropist, giving digital assets away will be the best way to drive mass adoption. And the philanthropist, Bill Pulte, grandson of the founder of multi-billion-dollar American real estate firm PulteGroup, wants to do just that. Related Reading: What’s So Cool About the First Ethereum-Based Home Sale? Crypto Giveaways, a Medium for Adoption? In a recent tweet, the viral Pulte, who has garnered over 1.7 million followers doing what he calls “Twitter Philanthropy,” remarked that he wants to start giving out “cryptocurrency on Twitter to strong-arm more adoption.” He added that as it stands, the broader cryptocurrency is missing out on mass adoption because of the lack of, say, Bitcoin giveaways on Twitter and other social media. “Being scared by “scams” is exactly how we got nowhere; INNOVATE!,”…Dec 14, 2019
