1/ FIRST ANALYSIS of @facebook's #Libra: Facebook completely misunderstands money. 🤣😩 Facebook understands payment systems--but that's not the same as money. Two telling quotes: "Libra is backed by a reserve of real assets." "Many cryptocurrencies today (eg #Bitcoin & #Ether...
2/ ...have no underlying assets to back them." Money is a good that serves as an HONEST LEDGER--it doesn't need to have intrinsic value because it attains value by people trusting it to be an HONEST LEDGER. Money is just a bookkeeping system--not all bookkeeping systems are money
3/ ...yet @facebook throws gobbledygook at us by asserting #Libra has value because it's backed by "bank deposits & short-term govt securities." 🤣 Well, at least it appears Facebook doesn't have plans (yet) to engage in fractional-reserve banking with Libra Reserve's assets...

Today we will discuss the 51% attacks, which is particularly relevant in light of the issues happened this year with #clo, #etc and #moac.
#51attacks #cryptomythbusters
👇
Many #cryptocurrency “experts” believe that if a user has more than a 51% of the network hash rate, he can do whatever he wants, such as going on a spending spree. But in reality, it’s much different.
Let’s say a miner owns 60% of the network hash rate. This lets him “hold” his blocks and not send them to the network. Instead, he continues mining his own chain by himself. Over a certain period of time, the miner is very likely to create more blocks than the rest of the network

0/ Back from an amazing week in Hobart* to bring you a 24-part thread covering the latest from the #crypto space over the past day or two!

*S/O to @TasFireService & @NSWRFS for bravely fighting a near-month-long fire that's now burnt out 28,000+ ha of World Heritage-listed land.
1/ 🛰️ Leading #Bitcoin infra. #tech provider @Blockstream has launched its Blockstream Satellite API Beta.

Paying via the #LightningNetwork testnet (i.e., for free), users can broadcast data via Blockstream's satellite network. No #Internet needed! blockstream.com/2019/01/16/sat…
2/ 🛑 Ethereum's #Constantinople upgrade was postponed due to a potential vulnerability discovered by #blockchain security firm @Chain_Security relating to EIP1283 (i.e., cheaper gas costs for SSTORE operations). Next course of action to be explored during Friday's core dev call.

0/ A busy #crypto/#blockchain space to kick off the week! Below, I've covered 16 events that took place over the past 24 hours or so.

1/ 📢 @EthereumCF-, @Zilliqa-backed @SwingbyProtocol, a cross-chain lending protocol for issuing an ERC20 BTC token, shared its MVP and whitepaper!

Creates a 1:1 soft-peg b/w #bitcoin [ $BTC ] and the BTC token *while keeping the custodian decentralized*. medium.com/swingby-protoc…

1/ A few reflections on @andrewrsorkin's interview of Jay Clayton last night. First off, it left me feeling more hopeful for #crypto's regulatory situation.
2/ Clayton and the SEC are not out to get #bitcoin and #ether, this should be obvious by now.

Reading between the lines of his words, it seems Clayton considers $BTC a currency, and $ETH a commodity.
3/ In differentiating a currency from a commodity, he stressed that commodities generally have an “industrial use” beyond serving as a means of exchange.

Will be interesting to see how granular regulators get in classifying the great diversity of #cryptoassets before us.

0/ Investors breathed easier today as the price of large-cap digital assets like #bitcoin [ $BTC ] and #ether [ $ETH ] managed to hold steady.

Whilst many were glued to the charts, I was trawling through the interwebs for the latest from the world of #crypto. You're welcome 😉
1/ 📣 Fresh from launching v1.1.3 of its #mainnet, @NULSservice [ $NULS ] detailed the design architecture of NULS 2.0 in the below 23-page paper.

Allows #NULS to be more than just the underlying infrastructure of the #blockchain. Many more uses to come! nuls.io/api/v1/downloa…
2/ ⛏️ @UbiqSmart [ $UBQ ] has successfully hard-forked to #Ubqhash.

Having done so, Ubiq is now decoupled from #Ethash and, thus, is no longer vulnerable to rental hash attacks. This marks the first time an #Ethereum fork has forked to a PoW mining algorithm.

The Pirate Bay et Showtime ont semble-t-il fait exécuter à leurs visiteurs un script JS de minage de #criptocurrency theguardian.com/technology/201…
L'article ne précise pas de quelle #criptocurrency il s'agit, mais une chose est sure, ce n'est ni du minage de #Bitcoin ni de l'#Ether
Vu la difficulté de minage actuelle pour ces 2 #blockchain, il faut impérativement des ASIC pour avoir une véritable chance de miner un bloc
