A partition has been started on change.org, aimed at CoinMarketCap, to accurately represent the total coin supply of Bitcoin Cash. Since bitmain, a large mining platform, started burning 12% of all BCH fees generated, the max total supply and circulating supply of BCH has been altered. An alteration that CoinMarketCcap has not taken into consideration yet. Although a partition seems over the top, the partition creator seems to think otherwise (livebitcoinnews). A group of 1000+ users are attempting to take bitcoin.com to court over claims that it deliberately misled readers of the site to purchase bitcoin cash instead of bitcoin itself as well as confusing users to use their “Bitcoin” wallet which was actually a bitcoin cash wallet. The CEO of bitcoin.com, Rodger Ver, has a well heard public opinion that BCH is the only true bitcoin that follows satoshi’s white paper. The website underwent redesigns late last year to “rebrand” to its alignment with its support bitcoin cash now showing BCH as Bitcoin and BTC and Bitcoin Core. CoinGeek, also public supporters of BCH as the real bitcoin, are backing bitcoin.com throughout this litigation. Stating “CoinGeek.com[3] will support and join any lawsuit related to what is the real Bitcoin. We look forward to a court reviewing the original white paper and the revolution of the two major branches that are on the chain that originated with the bitcoin genesis block.” (Bitcoinist)(CoinGeek). UNICEF Australia is utilizing CoinHive, a cryptocurrency mining service, to allow visitors to the site to donate resources from their computer while browsing the site to help mine cryptocurrency to generate revenue. The director of Fundraising and Communications, Jennifer Tierney explained “We wanted to leverage new emerging technologies to raise awareness about current humanitarian crises and raise new funds to support children caught up in them. The Hope Page allows Australians to provide help and hope to vulnerable children by simply opening the page when they are online.” An interesting, but viable move by the Not-for-profit as an alternative revenue stream for them, as well as an easy sacrifice for end users to make while browsing. It would be interesting to see what kind of revenue this would generate. They have partnered with Coinhive’s enterprise version of the crypto mining software to allow users to “opt-in” and control how much power they give over to be used for mining (Bitcoin Magazine). Circle, an instant money sharing platform, has announced that they will be supporting Zcash within their Investment platform, Circle Invest. This is the 6th cryptocurrency coin they have added, behind bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin cash, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. Circle built their platforms on the blockchain and claim to trade over $2 billion worth of cryptocurrency every month (Cryptocurrency News). A hard fork of Bitcoin Cash is coming up on May 15th to raise the blockchain size from 8mb to 32mb, significantly increasing the amount of transactions that can happen per block. This fork will also increase the OP_RETURN field to 220 bytes, allowing users to store data on the blockchain, an idea to pave the way for future development including rights management and asset creation on the blockchain (CoinGeek).

In The News: Circle unveils new product for retail cryptocurrency investors (Bitcoinist). American Express could use blockchain to protect client’s identities and combat fraud (Bitcoinist) Singapore proposes regulatory changes which could green-light blockchain related exchanges (Bitcoinist) Bitfinex reportedly tied to puerto rico’s noble bank international (ETH News). Cryptocurrency startup company, Circle, has unveiled a new investment product. The launch was announced via a post on the company’s blog. The Goldman Sachs-backed firm recently completed a lucrative investment round while announcing plans for a stablecoin tied to the USD. According to a blog post by Senior Product Manager, Rachel Mayer, the latest addition to the catalog of crypto investment offerings at the firm is called “Buy the Market.” The new product allows users to invest in all seven listed cryptos simultaneously. Users also get to decide how much they wish to put up in their portfolio. Buy the Market uses a weighted allocation framework to distribute the funds among the seven cryptos using their market capitalization. The minimum investment sum is $1 while the maximum weekly limit is $10,000 (Bitcoinist). US-based financial corporation American Express is researching how blockchain technology can provide solutions to fraud and identity protection. While at the Oktane18 conference in Las Vegas, the company’s VP of technology, Tereasa Kastel, chatted about the future blockchain plans of American Express stating “American Express is a very innovative company. They were working on blockchain specifically for financial transactions, but we were starting to explore what an identity wallet looks like, and if blockchain could be used to help serve as, both internal, and external card members and merchants” (Bitcoinist). The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has proposed changes to its current regulations which are expected to lower the market entry for blockchain related exchanges. According to reports, the Monetary Authority of Singapore MAS  – which is Singapore’s central bank and financial regulator – has issued a consultation paper in which it is reviewing the current regulatory framework which has been in place since 2002. This is to accommodate the demands of a dynamic financial services landscape. All financial institutions and other interested parties have been invited to submit written comments to the paper by June 22nd (Bitcoinist). According to a Thursday report, Noble Bank International has provided its banking services to Bitfinex since sometime in 2017. The cryptocurrency exchange seems to have cycled through a series of banking relationships after Wells Fargo abruptly ended its relationship with the company in April 2017. Bloomberg revealed that Noble Bank International assumed “banking duties” for Bitfinex last year, citing three anonymous sources. Noble claims offices in New York, NY , San Jose, and Puerto Rico – the latter of which has become a cryptocurrency hotbed, due in part to its minimal taxes. On its website, Noble bills itself as a “full-reserve bank providing real-time post-trade services to over-the-counter markets including foreign exchange and Digital Currencies.” Noble did not immediately reply to an inquiry about the company’s reported relationship with Bitfinex and Tether. Bloomberg further noted that Bitfinex appears to have utilized “a string of third-party accounts based in Panama City” while seeking a new banking partner. It seems that the company adopted this strategy after Wells Fargo ceased its support to the exchange in April 2017 (ETH News). Give us a shout on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram @DailyCryptoHQ
