Roger-Ver-Promises-New-Bitcoin-com-Wallet-Update-Will-Be-the-Biggest-Ever-Coming-Soon

CEO of Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver, has expressed that users will soon see a major update come to the website’s crypto wallet. At this point, the actual details are not available, but many analysts believe that this is one of the most anticipated changes in the market to date. Ver announced the upcoming changes on the YouTube channel for the website, where he was accompanied by Corbin Fraser and Akane Yokoo.

During the video, Ver expressed that the update would be out when the video was released, which would mean January 20th. In the video, he described the update by saying it is the “biggest ever to the Bitcoin.com wallet.” The group discussed the listing of features for the wallet, which will be a r/BTC subreddit post, along with a video to elaborate.

Another integration coming to the wallet is a crowdfunding application called Bitbacker.io. Right now, there is already work going into the integration to ensure that Bitbacker will be placed “directly into the Bitcoin.com wallet.” This program is supposed to be an alternative to former program Patreon, which banned multiple political and social entities.

One user on Reddit said that they hope the following changes are made with the Bitcoin.com wallet:

  • “Spend and replace built right into the wallet”
  • “Strong privacy thanks to Coinshuffle”
  • “improving the transaction creation, signing, and broadcasting speed”

During the interview, one of the topics of conversation was the way that there seem to be more scam artists attempting to conceal their own identity behind influencers in the crypto world, like Roger Ver himself. As a result of details like this, Ver’s name has been falsely used in the theft of over $6 million by scammers.

Ver has held his stance that BCH is the only crypto that seems to have a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system for online payments,” which he reiterated in the Bitcoin.com video. Advocates of Bitcoin on Reddit have accused Ver of attempting to wrongly direct new investors and market Bitcoin cash, comparing the tweet to a “borderline scam.”

Grimes and Azealia Banks Trade Insults in Newly Leaked Texts

As reported Friday, both Grimes and Azealia Banks—who you might recall dominated a portion of 2018 with a mansion lockdown tale—have apparently been subpoenaed in a class action Tesla suit. Specifically, the presumably boring legal proceedings are connected to Elon Musk’s infamous 420 tweet about taking the company private. Now, while Musk’s legal team has reportedly argued that Banks isn’t a legit witness, the frequent Musk critic has taken matters into her own hands.

In the August 2018 texts, which Banks reportedly shared on social media and have since been screengrabbed, Grimes and Banks mock each other’s physical appearance and alleged vices. “You’re going to get in trouble sis,” Banks says at one point, to which Grimes allegedly responded “narc.” Elsewhere, Grimes appears to call Banks “fat” and Banks suggests Musk wants her “fat pussy.” Banks also reportedly referred to Grimes as a “brittleboned methhead.”

Notably, this isn’t the first time text conversations between the two have made their way into the hands of everyday people.

Grimes has not responded to the sharing of any of this. Back in November, she released her Hana-featuring new single “We Appreciate Power.”

The excellent cut was promoted with an equally excellent Tonight Show performance, though footage of that performance has since been removed from YouTube for reasons unknown. Last week, the track got a BloodPop remix.

Banks, meanwhile, dropped her holiday-themed Icy Colors Change project last month.

Cheaters force Ark dev’s pirate MMO Atlas offline for a second time in less than a week

Grapeshot Games, an offshoot of Ark developer Studio Wildcard, has been forced to takes its pirate MMO Atlas offline for a second time in less than a …

Grapeshot Games, an offshoot of Ark developer Studio Wildcard, has been forced to takes its pirate MMO Atlas offline for a second time in less than a week, following yet more shenanigans from cheaters – who this time spawned in drakes and hijacked official in-game server messages.

Late last week, Grapeshot elected to shut down its Atlas servers and instigate a rollback of more than five hours after cheaters, believed to belong to player group Black Butterfly, caused havoc by spawning the likes of tanks, giant whales, and airplanes into the pirate game. The studio later claimed the incident was a result of an admin’s Steam account being “compromised”, and that it had “taken the appropriate steps to ensure this does not happen again.”

Unfortunately, while Atlas’ downtime and server rollback initially appeared to resolve cheating issues, it wasn’t long before more antics ensued.

As documented in a thread on the official Atlas subreddit, a second wave of illicit activity saw unscrupulous players seemingly using cheats to spawn drakes and giant whales (a few of which were spotted floating forlornly through the air) into the game. Additionally, cheaters managed to seize control of the server’s status message, encouraging players to “Subscribe to Pewdiepie” before announcing “Black Butterfly strikes again”.

All these events were captured during a livestream by Atlas clan (or Company, in game parlance) StreamerHouse. Grapeshot reportedly responded quickly once notified, taking its official network offline for “emergency maintenance” in order to investigate the issue and roll back North American PvP server world states by around three hours.

In an official statement posted to the Atlas website, assistant community manager Dollie blamed the second wave of cheats on a “technical exploit”. The studio insisted that, unlike last week’s events, “no administrator accounts were compromised in this situation”.

It also offered assurances that it has now “protected against” the new technical exploit, and that “multiple accounts have been banned in relation to this”. Additionally, the developer attempted to quell speculation as to the identity of those responsible, claiming that “the evidence and our extensive logging indicates that this group does not have any specific ties to any one company, but are instead targeting streamers and large or well-known companies.”

“We will continue our investigation and will take action on all involved accounts and companies when we learn of their involvement immediately,” Grapeshot concluded.

Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin Looks to Clear the Air on His OmiseGo (OMG) Involvement and Its Failures

They had a strong team and even ties to the crypto icon, Vitalik Buterin. This ensured that OmiseGo was one of the most promising crypto projects of …
Vitalik-Buterin-Tries-to-Clear-the-Air-on-His-Involvement-with-OmiseGo

During 2017, OmiseGo was amongst the most hyped project on the crypto verse. They had a strong team and even ties to the crypto icon, Vitalik Buterin. This ensured that OmiseGo was one of the most promising crypto projects of the year.

However, things started going south soon after. The advisers for the project slowly went quiet. Besides that, the team proved that it was not capable of delivering on the promises they made and the community split into avid believers and harsh critics.

Recent Happenings

In a recent interview that was full of uncomfortable laughter, the CEO of OMG Jun Hosegawa had few solid plans. He did not clarify the direction of the project. Combined with his nonchalant approach to the entire interview, this left most of the OMG community quite angry. Hosegawa even claimed that Buterin had only played a minor role in writing the whitepaper and nothing more.

Buterin Responds

Buterin was not about to take this lying down and he responded on Reddit. He gave clear clarification on his role in the project, which was the opposite of what was claimed by Hosegawa.

Vitalik said that he had helped to create the plasma whitepaper. He also said that he played a crucial role in the Plasma implementation team, participated in discussions around the release strategy, DEX design, and much more. Buterin said that some of the work he did in the project did not fit into any given category. He was also an active participant in the development of the exchange. Vitalik said he would not have allowed them to use his name indiscriminately to promote the project if he had only written the whitepaper.

The Community’s Response

Various other members could see through the OMG lies and they had many unfavorable things to say. One claimed that he had been a major promoter for the project but he was now in distress. He was angry that Jun did not explain anything tangible to the community or to those who wished to join the project. He concluded that the community should not praise anything that came along, just because they were eager to get a few morsels of information from the creators.

Another user, replying to the Vitali Reddit said that the subreddit was purely dedicated to trolling OMG. It was also used to troll those who had invested in the highly speculative asset. Now, these people were blaming the team for their own mistakes. He added that anyone who had researched OMG could tell that Vitalik had contributed to more than just the whitepaper.

He added that he was thankful to Vitalik for all he had done to improve society. Then he wished him luck in any future projects. He told Vitalik to visit the official OMG sub if he wanted a serious discussion on the issue.

OMG Woes

In the recent past, OMG has been in free fall both in trust and market performance. Although the crypto world is used to disappointment, OMG has gone the extra mile to do so.

Reddit Community: Bittrex May Be Hacked, Losing Over 9 mln SNT

On Thursday, January 17, redditor u/NightKnight_CZ made a post titled “Was Bittrex just hacked?”

Screenshots that raise his suspicions show that somebody has conducted four consequential transactions from Bittrex. During three of them, an unknown party withdrew 99,999,971 Status tokens (SNT). One such amount equals $2,419,435.

The fourth transaction taken out of the exchange wallet was slightly less – 79,999,971 SNT, which is around $1,928,219.

In the screenshot, each operation has a link to the corresponding Etherscan page to prove it.

Redditors’ reactions

The community has taken the news with no agitation. Some assumed that these coins had simply been bought, taking into account the recent price pump of Status.

At the time of writing, SNT is showing a rise by 14.05 percent and is trading at

$0.0237.

Another redditor wrote that the exchange had warned earlier on Twitter that they were intending to move large amount of funds off the exchange.

Whether or not this is a real hacking of some user account is not clear yet. However, in the second half of 2018, there was a report on Reddit written by a user whose personal Bittrex account had been hacked via the 2-factor identification. The culprits had hacked the victim’s Google account, downloaded his photos and photos of his passport from there. After working on them in Photoshop, they managed to gain access to his Bittrex account with all the crypto.

The first hack of 2019 confirmed

On Thursday, New Zealand police confirmed the fact that the Cryptopia exchange, which U.Today reported about the other day, had indeed been hacked. Earlier, U.Today wrote that the crypto community on Twitter suspected that the small-scale exchange merely pulled off an exit scam.

Cryptopia is still offline, of which it had warned its users on social media after the hack took place and noticed only on Monday. Before that, over the weekend, a few suspicious transactions were noticed on Etherscan, in which large amounts of crypto were taken out of Cryptopia.

The daily trading volume of the exchange was just $2 mln. As a result of the hack, the company reportedly lost ETH tokens worth between $2.5 mln and $3.5 mln, as well as Centrality (CENNZ) coins.
