Bitcoin's Forks Epidemic: Gift or Fraud?

ICO-LINK-NEWS-Bitcoins-Forks-Epidemic-Gift-or-Fraud

The creation of Bitcoin's forks with copying of all existing balances containing "gift" coins for all Bitcoin owners is undoubtedly a trend of recent months. In fact, why invest time and money in development or marketing, if it is so simple to attract a great many people who will not refuse to get something for nothing? First, a successful Bitcoin Cash, then a dubious Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Silver, which in a few days slid down almost to zero. Now another copy of Bitcoin - Super Bitcoin (SBTC), follows them. The SBTC network plans to appear on block 498888 (around mid-December), and the owners of the original Bitcoin will receive the same SBTC as BTC's "absolutely free" - you just need to get a wallet. According to the official website, SBTC scales the block size to 8 megabytes, and will use smart contracts and Lightning network.

ICO-LINK-NEWS-Exchange-Bittrex-launched-the-trade-input-and-output-of-Bitcoin-Gold

All users who had balance sheets in Bitcoins at the time of the "snap shot" on October 24, 2017 were credited with BTG coins at a ratio of 1 to 1. In the first few minutes, the rate of BTG to BTC was also 1 to 1, however this value changed rapidly. Bittrex – the first major cryptocurrency exchange, which opened full support for BTG, including the input and output of coins. Prior to this, the largest exchange that traded BTG was Bitfinex. However, on it, as on other sites, only the balances accrued after the hardforks, and the input and output are still not working.

ICO-LINK-NEWS-Mark-Karpeles-seeks--245-million-for-the-revival-of-MtGox

Will there be a happy owner of $ 245 million, willing to spend it on restoring the infamous MtGox exchange? Having not yet paid off with lenders who have been waiting for a refund for almost four years, Mark Karpeles, who has grown thin in a Japanese prison, wants to restore the exchange and even hopes for community support. Therefore, without pleading guilty to the charges against him of money laundering and embezzlement, Karpeles stated that the revival of MtGox would help creditors get some of the money lost because of the bankruptcy of the exchange. Otherwise, due to the complexity of the bankruptcy procedure, creditors can hardly hope for early repayments. Karpeles told this in his blog.

ICO-LINK-NEWS-More-futures-Bitcoin-was-fixed-above--8000

In the evening on Sunday, Bitcoin tested a new historical maximum, having fixed above $ 8,000. At the Bitfinex exchange, the exchange rate was a record $ 8,130, Bitstamp and GDAX did not get much to the $ 8,100 mark. In addition, although the difference with the previous maximum was insignificant, it sets up certain positive thoughts. It seems that the news that LedgerX, the operator of the currency exchange, launched the first long-term Bitcoin futures option, forced the crypto currency to go again after the consolidation, which lasted several days.
