The 3 best browsers Blockchain for Bitcoin – Breaking News

… also you can view in the same browser the data of the strings of blocks of Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash, although in the case of these two Blockchains …

When we talk about the technology Blockchain, one of the first things that comes to our minds is the transparency that give the chains of blocks. The transactions are set by the miners in blocks public, allows all movements made with cryptocurrencies, and especially with Bitcoin, they can be audited by any person. However, since it is a technology based on a programming language of some complexity, to locate a block within the chain or a specific transaction, is not something that can make the average user without knowledge of computer by simply downloading the public broadcaster of Bitcoin. Therefore, there are a few tools known as explorers Blockchain, that allow us to view events and operations in the chain of blocks more quickly and easily, bringing the advantages of the Blockchain to all crypto users. So, today in CriptoTendencia we bring you the top three browsers of the Blockchain of Bitcoin currently available, so that you know where to go when you need to locate information in the chain of blocks of this criptomoneda.

Blockchain.com

How could it be otherwise, Blockchain.com tops our list with its explorer of the chain of blocks of Bitcoin. In the same not only you will be able to visualize the data of the last blocks mined, but also what group was in charge of his mined, and the size of the same, having a search engine at the top of the screen to enter the data of the specific block about which you want more information. In addition, Blockchain.com we also provides other data such as recent transactions, the average rate of commission charged for the transaction, the difficulty of mining, the rate of hash, the number of transactions executed in the last 24 hours, among other options that make this platform one of the most complete. Explorer of the chain of blocks of Bitcoin Blockchain.com finally, also you can view in the same browser the data of the strings of blocks of Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash, although in the case of these two Blockchains are only available the data of the blocks mined and the transactions

Blockchair

Another great alternative to explore the Blockchain is Blockchair. The platform of this website allows you to access the data of an important number of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin, Cash, Litecoin, Bitcoin VS, Dash, Dogecoin and Groestlcoin. Within your browser you will find information about the last block of Bitcoin mined, as well as a search engine so that we can find a block in specific. In addition, the page also offers information about transactions, commissions, number of nodes, mempool, and other data in real time that make Blockchair one of the browsers with the largest amount of information available. Explorer of the chain of blocks of Bitcoin Blockchair

Tokenview

Tokenview is a project developed by programmers chinese, being one of the explorers of Blockchain bigger, and could result in data from tens of cryptocurrencies through your web page. Explorer of the chain of blocks of Bitcoin Tokenview Although you do not have a supply of data as large as Blockchair, or a user interface as friendly as that of Blockchain.com, Tokenview will earn a place within our list of best browsers Blockchain thanks to the effort you make to keep us informed of multiple chains at the same time, coming to offer even a listing of outstanding transactions to be incorporated into the chain of blocks, a feature that makes it worthy of our attention.

Lightning Bug Illuminates Trouble For Bitcoin Scaling

Other cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin Cash, offer lower fees and faster transactions, but that is of little use to BTC holders. Meanwhile, other payment …

Lightning Labs has confirmed that a major vulnerability in the Lightning Network has been exploited ‘in the wild.’ The peer-to-peer payment network is meant to provide fast and inexpensive Bitcoin payments, but as the bug incident demonstrates, it may not yet be ready for serious payments.

The bug was originally revealed on a mailing list at the end of August by Rusty Russell, a prominent Blockstream developer. Russell only partially disclosed the details of the bug, noting that security issues had been found in “various lightning projects” and that this “could cause loss of funds.”

Full details of the vulnerability will not be revealed until the end of September, giving users four weeks to upgrade to a more secure version of the software. However, this precaution was too late to prevent an exploit, as Lightning Labs revealed in a separate message on Tuesday.


Are Lightning Users At Risk?

SIMETRI ResearchSIMETRI Research

Lightning Labs has taken the time to warn users that the Lightning Network is still in its early stages. “Don’t put more money on Lightning than you’re willing to lose,” the company posted to Twitter. This isn’t exactly reassuring, although most users know that Lightning is only intended for small transfers.

This is also a great time to remind folks that we have limits in place to mitigate widespread funds loss at this early stage. There will be bugs.

Don’t put more money on Lightning than you’re willing to lose!

— Lightning Labs⚡️ (@lightning) September 10, 2019

Most users are not at risk: it seems that the bug affects node software, not wallets. But at least some funds have been compromised, and although Lightning Labs claims to have preventative measures in place, it is not clear what those measures actually are.

It’s also not clear how much money has actually been stolen. Currently, the Lightning Network’s capacity is 830 BTC (about $8.5 million), but it seems likely that high-value node operators keep their software up to date.


Is Lightning Secure Or Not?

The Lightning Network has long been a point of contention in the crypto community. Some argue that Lightning is prone to centralization, and they may have a point. The network has grown significantly since it launched last year – and a few well-connected nodes provide most of the capacity.

However, centralization might be a necessary trade-off to achieve scalability, as explained in the scalability trilemma. Andreas Antonopoulos has argued that the “vast majority” of Bitcoin transactions are already off-chain, in the databases of exchanges and merchant providers. According to Antonopoulos, Lightning mainly provides trustlessness, not decentralization – that is, Lightning does not require you to trust a single organization.

Unsurprisingly, the idea that Lightning is trustless is controversial in and of itself. Peter Rizun of Bitcoin Unlimited has argued that Lightning relies too much on trust between participants. He believes that routing nodes can lose user funds, and that hubs may gain de facto custody over funds as Lightning fees get higher.

These concerns might be overblown, at least with respect to the recently-announced bug. Since the vulnerability only affects some versions of its software, it is probably not a fundamental problem in Lightning’s approach to security.


Where Will Things Go From Here?

The latest incident is unlikely make anyone lose faith in the Lightning Network, unless they were already a non-believer. However, Lightning has been faltering in terms of adoption even prior to this incident. In spite of past growth, recent reports suggest that Lightning’s channel counts and network capacity have been falling in recent months.

But it’s still the only game in town when it comes to BTC micropayments. Right now, the average Bitcoin transaction costs about $1.00, and there are few ways to send small amounts of Bitcoin on the blockchain. Other cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin Cash, offer lower fees and faster transactions, but that is of little use to BTC holders.

Meanwhile, other payment channel projects such as Strawpay, haven’t gained much traction. Lightning has outdone the competition in terms of publicity and gained allies like the mining giant Bitfury and the payment processor CoinGate. It might not be ready for prime time, but the project isn’t going to lose what it has accomplished so far.

A DIY Bitcoin hardware wallet for $110? This developer explains how

Justin Moon, founder and instructor at Bitcoin workshop BUIDL Bootcamp, has created a do-it-yourself Bitcoin hardware wallet—that can be bought in …

Justin Moon, founder and instructor at Bitcoin workshop BUIDL Bootcamp, has created a do-it-yourself Bitcoin hardware wallet—that can be bought in parts for $110. The device, currently called the BitBoy, can send and receive bitcoins.

On top of the basics, it has two security features that make it stand out from other Bitcoin hardware wallets. It is stateless, which helps protect the device from losing funds, and it uses a QR-code-based, air-gapped feature to help keep it safe from hacks (more on those later). And these two features, combined with its low price and low barrier to entry, sent Crypto Twitter into a frenzy.

Moon posted a video—which has been watched more than 60,000 times—that showcases the retro-looking device and how it works. We caught up with the Austin-based instructor to find out more.

Meet BitBoy: a stateless, QR-airgapped DIY Bitcoin hardware wallet pic.twitter.com/4nfrNP1hlE

— Justin Moon (@_JustinMoon_) September 3, 2019

Moon told Decrypt that he only got into Bitcoin last summer and decided to create the BitBoy as a fun teaching project.

“Building a hardware wallet is a fantastic way to learn about Bitcoin private keys,” he said.

The instructor added that having a homemade option helps to achieve true self-sovereignty, since pre-packaged software could be bugged or hijacked during the supply-chain process. Instead, buying bog-standard computing equipment, such as computer chips, and building them into a hardware wallet should help to keep thieves at bay.

But the project wasn’t a one-man job. Moon said that Stepan Snigirev of Bitcoin hardware platform CryptoAdvance helped him compile some of the devices’ libraries and that he also repurposed some code from Jimmy Song’s recent Programming Bitcoin book.

As a result, BitBoy is a device that doesn’t behave like typical Bitcoin hardware wallets. It doesn’t store users’ private keys (passwords that allow the user to spend their bitcoins)–it’s a device for signing Bitcoin transactions, when the user wants to send some bitcoins. This helps the device stay more secure.

Bitcoin’s Lightning Network growth picks up

Traditionally, to create a Bitcoin transaction you will typically need to be connected to the internet. To complete the transaction, you need your private key, but if the device is connected to the internet, you’re at risk of exposing your private key, and therefore all your bitcoins, to the internet. BitBoy keeps this part of a transaction offline.

The internet-connected device sends the transaction (yet to be signed) to the device. The device signs it and sends it back. Then the signed transaction is broadcast online to the Bitcoin network. In short, it allows you to spend your bitcoins while minimizing the risk of exposing your private keys to the world.

The Bitcoin wallet’s main features

The bootstrapped hardware wallet has two main features that make it stand out from the crowd.

First, it is stateless. This means the device wipes any data it has processed whenever it is shut down, deleting all memory of the user’s private keys. As a result, the user has to type their private key in each time they use the BitBoy.

While this sounds like a serious pain point, it makes a lot of sense. While the device isn’t connected to the internet, it will be running a few simple programs and will interact with a device that is connected to the internet. Therefore, while slight, there is still a risk that it could be compromised. By being stateless, it helps to keep the user’s bitcoins safe.

Second, it uses QR codes to interact with the device connected to the internet. This creates an air-gap between the two devices, making the whole process much harder to infiltrate (try hacking air). It’s actually the same process the SafePal S1 crypto wallet uses—which we found really straightforward.

Alternatives, such as using USB cords, are riskier, according to Moon. “There are many published attacks where, for instance, power consumption leaks private keys or a malicious USB cord installs malware,” he said, adding, “Air-gapped QR codes are much better—they are a data-only communication channel.”

What’s impressive about BitBoy is that it achieves both of these, while keeping to a tight budget.

What’s next for the wallet?

Moon is now working on a complimentary desktop application to be able to safely do multisig bitcoin transactions. A multisig transaction is where two or more keys are used to sign a Bitcoin transactions. These can be held by one person or multiple people and are often used for security reasons.

Moon added, “I realized this toy could actually be useful in a multisig setup—that it wouldn’t take much work to be one of the three best multisig wallets in the world.”

But whether this would introduce any security risks is yet to be seen.
