20:21 WhatReallyHappened.comIran poised to legalize cryptocurrency mining as potential path out of US sanctions trap

Iran has moved to legalize the mining of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, recognizing the energy-consuming digital coin mining as a legitimate industry – and potentially a way around the US sanctions crippling its economy.
“A mechanism to mine digital coins was approved by the government’s economic commission and will later be put to discussion at a cabinet meeting,” said Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Governor Abdolnaser Hemmati on Sunday.

19:15 TheNextWeb.comSurvey finds adults couldn’t care less about Facebook’s Libra ‘cryptocurrency’

Facebook Libra’s potential to help cryptocurrency go mainstream has been touted in recent weeks, but recent survey results indicate otherwise.  According to a poll conducted by CivicScience, which looked into general interest and public concerns surrounding Libra following the announcement of its launch, only five percent of 1,799 US adults surveyed expressed any level of interest in the proposed digital currency. In stark contrast, an overwhelming 86 percent said they were ‘not at all interested,’ while 10 percent seemed unsure. Unsurprisingly, those who said they were interested were younger, mostly belonging to the 18-to-24-year olds cohort. Additionally, 77 percent said they… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Facebook

By Graham Smith
After nearly two decades of U.S.-led coalition bombs falling on the Middle East, peace in the region still has not been achieved. Now the United States is once again bolstering military forces, this time in Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, taxpayers in multiple countries are being forced to pay for these ill-fated and unethical campaigns, with little to no say in the matter. Bitcoin and cryptocurrency provide a means, however, to store and move value in peaceful ways, in lieu of donating to the murder of strangers overseas...

17:54 TheNextWeb.comNobody knows when Bitcoin Satoshi Vision’s hard fork for 2GB blocks starts

Fledging blockchain Bitcoin Satoshi Vision is ready for a “hard fork” upgrade to increase the size limit of its blocks from 128MB to 2GB — but there’s confusion over when it’s actually supposed to occur. According to BitMEX Research (the analytic arm of cryptocurrency exchange BitMEX), BSV miners and nodes are likely confused over when the upgrade will initiate, as differing start times have been mistakenly provided across various mediums. This is a problem. BSV nodes enforce the rules of the protocol, and must reject any BSV blocks that don’t match. If the miners don’t know the rules, they could start… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Bitcoin

17:09 TheNextWeb.comRipple Q2: Market share is down, but price is up – here’s what happened

Cryptocurrency and blockchain were built to usurp centralized authorities like governments and banks. And then came Ripple, a corporate and institutional reimagining of what a digital currency should be and do. Ripple has managed to make cryptocurrencies and corporate institutions play nice, and is developing distributed ledger (DLT) technologies for such clients. It has often drawn criticism for ‘not being a real cryptocurrency’ and not being truly decentralized. This criticism comes from the fact that Ripple’s blockchain doesn’t have any miners, and access to it is heavily permissioned. It’s a far cry from open and censorship-resistant platforms, like Bitcoin. However,… This story continues at The Next Web
