ICO-NEWS-the-concept-of-reversible-ICO Fabian Vogelsteller | The creator of the ERC-20 standard

The developer, who formalized the code that underlies most of the primary token allocations (ICO), the Ethereum standard ERC-20, proposed a new approach in an attempt to make financing schemes safer for investors.

Speaking in Prague on Devcon4, the annual Ethereum Developer Conference, Fabian Vogelsteller proposed the concept of a "reversible ICO" or RICO that would allow token investors to return their funds at any stage of the project's life. In particular, the concept involves the creation of a special smart contract that allows investors to "cancel their financing obligations".

Ethereum Co-founder: the fall of the markets will not prevent the crypto-industry development

ICO-NEWS-not-prevent-the-crypto-industry-development Joseph Lubin | Ethereum co-founder

Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin said that he does not view the decline in the value of cryptocurrency as a constraint on the growth of the industry. In his recent interview with Bloomberg, Lubin said that the drop in prices is not a new phenomenon. It was present in the "ecosystem of the blockchain since 2009 - from the moment Bitcoin was invented."

He also noted that, despite the declining value of the cryptocurrency, price bubbles will appear to be "small bumps on the chart", because "growth was exponential".

ICO-LINK-NEWS-CBOE-and-CME-Group-can-issue-futures-for-Ethereum-and-Litecoin

Two exchanges from Chicago, CBOE and CME, which are the first in the world of regulated areas to start working with Bitcoin derivatives, are also considering the possibility of launching futures for Ethereum and Litecoin. This information, while not officially confirmed, appeared last night in the US media. The launch of the Bitcoin futures theoretically should consolidate the value of the cryptocurrencies as a new asset class. Successful trading in futures and options for Bitcoin virtually makes the emergence of similar contracts for other major cryptocurrencies, and primarily on the air and Litecoin.

ICO-LINK-NEWS-British-expert-before-crashing-the-price-of-Bitcoin-will-reach--20000

London financial expert, CEO of NEX Group, Michael Spencer, was among those financiers who consider Bitcoin a bubble. Nevertheless, he believes that the price of Bitcoin will reach $ 20,000, and only after that, it will sharply go down. In an interview with Guy Johnson on Bloomberg TV in London, Spencer said he had no idea if the Bitcoin price would double before it halved, but noted that the $ 20,000 level could be reached "damn fast." Johnson called the growth of Bitcoin, which exceeded the $ 11,000 mark last Wednesday, "irrational."

ICO-LINK-NEWS-Mike-Novogratz-predicts-the-new-highs-of-Ethereum

Investor and founder of crypto-currency hedge funds Mike Novogratz said that the Ethereum is ready to reach new record highs in the short term. Over the past few weeks, the daily volume of sales of the air has grown significantly, mainly due to the South Korean market of cryptocurrencies. After the government of South Korea introduced a nationwide ban on the initial deployment of tokens (ICO) in October, the demand for airwaves and its price in South Korea declined.

ICO-LINK-BLOG-invest-in-Ethereum

American youth invests more often in crypto currency than people of the older generation, said LendEDU student loan officers. According to a survey conducted by LendEDU and OnePoll, a market research company specializing in marketing, Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 are familiar with the concepts of "crypto currency", "ICO" and "market capitalization" much closer than people in older age groups, and therefore much more often invest in them. As a result of a survey of 1000 respondents from the United States, about 32% said they had heard about the airwaves, and 18% added that they plan to purchase it as an investment. 22% said they had heard of Ripple, and almost 15% confirmed their intention to invest in XRP.

Raiden platform's tokensale raised $ 32 million

ICO-LINK-BLOG-RAIDEN

The tokensale of the platform of the payment channels of the Etherium Raiden, launched on October 18 and organized on the principle of the Dutch auction, ended November 1 at a rather moderate amount of 109 532 ETH (about $ 32.75 million). Of course, such an amount seems to be moderate only by the standards of 2017 - especially if we recall that in August 2014 only 31,500 BTC was collected at the Ethereum ICO itself, or about $ 18.4 million at the exchange rate for that period.

Hardfork Byzantium: official statement of the Ethereum Foundation

ICO-LINK-BLOG-ETHEREUM-FOUNDATION

The Ethereum Foundation confirms that the planned hardfork will be activated on the block 4 370 000, which will be produced, roughly, on Monday October 16, between 12:00 and 13:00 UTC (16:00 to 17:00 Moscow time). The same hardfork was activated in the test network Ropsten on September 19 on the block 1,700,000. The countdown timer can be viewed here. To date, in the Etherium, there have already been four hardfork, and only one of them led to the creation of an alternative blocker Ethereum Classic. Given that Byzantium is included in the development plan of the Etherium since 2015, it is unlikely that there will be problems with the update. Byzantium can be considered as a conservative update, which will include 9 proposals for changes (EIP - analog BIP) in the platform. The essence of the change is that they need to make the platform easier and faster, improving the speed of transactions, the security of smart contracts and, possibly, confidentiality.

Experts said about the theft of 10% of the Ethereum crypto-currency invested in IСO

ICO-LINK-BLOG-ETHEREUM-THEFT

The tenth part of the Ethereum crypto currency invested in the ICO was stolen by fraudsters who used phishing sites and social network accounts for this. The amount of cyber-theft is already approaching the amount of funds stolen by the usual way. Participation in the initial placement of the tokens (Initial Coin Offering - ICO) on the Ethereum blockbuster platform (crypto currency ether) assumes that in one of ten cases a participant will become a victim of fraud. This is reported by Bloomberg.
