The next-gen vision came to life this week during Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5 tech demo running on PS5. The showcase was in stark contrast to Microsoft”s disappointing cache of Series X ‘gameplay’ trailers. A next-gen console is only as good at its latest showcase, and by that measure, PS5 is winning the early next-gen stakes. On Wednesday, months of speculation, rumors, and perceived promotional advantages turned trivial as Epic Games unveiled an Unreal Engine 5 tech demo running real-time on PlayStation 5. It was the first real-time demonstration with the chops to capture the imagination. The next-gen vision come to life. Aside from the glut of jaw-dropping moments, it was a coup for Sony and the PlayStation 5. And, the timing could not have been better. Microsoft Misfires This time last week, people were left muddling through the confusion of Microsoft’s Inside Xbox next-gen gameplay reveal. With little to no gameplay to speak of and an underwhelming roster of titles, Microsoft’s misfire was all too clear. It prompted the platform holder to publish an apology of sorts, recognizing it…May 16, 2020
A United States federal court has sentenced a U.S. citizen to 13 years in jail for laundering money for ISIS using Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Per a Department of Justice announcement on March 13, Zoobia Shahnaz of Long Island received a 13-year sentence for working to fund the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham through cryptocurrency payments amounting to over $150,000. She also worked to move to Syria to become a member of ISIS. Fraudulent loans for financing To raise the funds, Shahnaz allegedly defrauded major banks including American Express, Chase and Discover, according to the original indictment from December 2017. The United States alleged that Shahnaz secured loans and credit cards under false pretenses, which she used to buy cryptocurrencies that she funneled through Pakistan, China and Turkey and eventually to ISIS. As Cointelegraph reported, Shahnaz was on her way to Syria in July of 2017 when officials prevented her from boarding a flight at JFK Airport in New York City. She was subsequently arrested later in the year. Motives: Medical aid for Syrian refugees Shahnaz pleaded guilty to…Mar 14, 2020
A headline in MIT Technology Review caught my attention this week: “The pandemic is emptying call centers. AI chatbots are swooping in.” COVID-19’s perfect storm – a global public health crisis, an economic meltdown and a surge in online connectivity – could accelerate what World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab calls the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In creating imperatives for both cost-cutting and software-dependent innovation, the pandemic is bringing us closer to an economy dominated by integrated networks of digital devices. This raises all sorts of vital questions. But here we’ll just drill down into one: what kind of money will this new society need? It’s likely that long-term unemployment will be a defining condition of this emerging machine-dominant economy. We’re not just talking about cyclical, recessionary layoffs but net job losses that are structural and permanent. You’re reading Money Reimagined, a weekly look at the technological, economic and social events and trends that are redefining our relationship with money and transforming the global financial system.

After having been denied bail on Dec. 26, Ethereum foundation researcher Virgil Griffith has now been released on a $1 million bond on the condition that he stay out of California. On Dec. 30, the Inner City Press reported that the 36-year-old Griffith has been released after a bail appeal hearing earlier today. The hearing took place in front of United States District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick, who granted a $1 million bail and ordered Griffith released, on the condition that he stay with his parents in Alabama for “moral suasion.” Despite the fact that Griffith attempted to procure a St. Kitts passport, the bail conditions allow for Griffith to use his passport card to travel to countries such as Canada, Mexico and certain regions of the Carribean including St. Kitts and Nevis. He will also be able to use email to stay in touch with his lawyers. The $1 million bond is reportedly secured by relatives’ homes. Arrested for educating North Korea on crypto and blockchain Griffith was first arrested on…Dec 30, 2019

In this way, U.S. customers will be able to exchange XRP in a fast and easy way for fiat- and crypto-currencies. The information was released by the company in a blog post.

It has been a wild week for Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto market, and major altcoins like Ethereum (ETH) have been unable to avoid the massive volatility that has been brought about by Bitcoin’s relatively large price swings that it has faced over the past month. This volatility has been overwhelmingly bearish for Ethereum and has led the embattled cryptocurrency to break below a key weekly support level, signaling that ETH could be at risk for incurring significantly further losses against both USD and BTC. Ethereum Closes Below Key Technical Support Level At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading down 1% at its current price of $148, which marks a notable drop from its recent highs of over $156 that were set late last week. It is important to keep in mind that ETH is currently trading up significantly from its recent lows of $130 that were set on November 24th concurrently with Bitcoin’s capitulatory drop to $6,500. Ethereum was able to post a rapid bounce from this price level, however, signaling that it was sold off and that…Dec 2, 2019
Governments all over the world are working on improving and streamlining their existing processes and infrastructure. Blockchain technology will play an increasing role of importance in this regard. Growing Adoption of Blockchain Technology Various governments around the globe are currently exploring their options in the blockchain space. Rather than looking at established technology companies, it appears that diversification is taking place at this time. This state of affairs is a logical evolution of the seemingly hesitant approach governments have taken when it comes to distributed ledger technology over the past few years. Streamlining existing processes and infrastructure is needed in the modern age. Legacy systems still in use today have become very slow and struggle to process the larger amounts of data our society deals with every single day. By tapping into blockchain technology, a lot of different options can be explored and improved upon with relative ease. Exploring Options With RSK Speaking of exploring different options, RSK can be a valuable ally for governments around the world. The company provides a smart contract platform on top of Bitcoin that…Apr 30, 2020

There is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $132 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken). Bitcoin failed to stay above $7,300 and it is now trading near the $7,240 support area. Ethereum price is facing an increase in selling versus the US Dollar due to a steady decline in bitcoin. ETH price could dive below the $128 level, if bitcoin slides below $7,200. Ethereum Price Analysis After a strong upward move above $135, Ethereum price faced resistance near the $138 zone against the US Dollar.

Four days ago, digital currency markets lost billions and prices sank to levels not seen since last March. The market bloodbath has affected bitcoin miners as they are making fewer profits than they were a week prior. By Monday, March 16, BTC’s hashrate slid below the 100 exahash (EH/s) territory and the BCH hashrate fell below 4 EH/s. Moreover, BCH has 22 days left until the block reward gets cut in half and there are 56 days until the BTC halving.

These prices have put intense pressure on miners hashing away at these two networks, and currently both networks have lost a good chunk of hashrate….Mar 17, 2020
