What is the next cryptocurrency will appear on Binance? The scandal with the voting

24 Jul Binance, one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges, has announced the beginning of voting for the “Coin of the month”. In total there are 5 candidates. One of the cryptocurrencies that will get the most votes will receive a listing on Binance within a reasonable time.

26 Jul users Redditors suggested that the voting is unfair way and more than 50% of the votes were obtained unfairly.

Among cryptocurrencies, for which you can vote for next: Libra Credit [LBA], Locktrip [LOC], Mithril [MITH], NKN [NKN] Polymath [POLY]. End of votes and Declaration of results will take place on 30 July.

The peculiarity of this vote is that the results depend on the number of tokens Binance [BNB] on account of the users who vote, and not on the amount of users who have voted. In simple words, the more BNB on account of the user, the higher the probability that the coin for which he votes will be the winner.

In addition, voting for the candidate fee is 0,1 BNB.

One Reddit user, Arbobmehmood, believes that voting is a dishonest way:

Apparently the vote this month trying to manipulate, and about 50% of the votes come from the 10 accounts. Manipulations are in favor of the Libra Credits (LBA) and Mithril (MITH). One of the accounts funded 193 other account in the amount of about 400 BNB. So just listed 65,420 BNB or 25% of the total number of votes.

The user Meduim, Cryptodaku supports the theory of manipulation and leads their calculations:

We see that this purse [0x2a74f3A43A0b13eFdc1413C665E68af7d09b0811] began translating almost 20k BNB, which is equal to 20 thousand votes. About 520 BNB was sent to various accounts Binance.

These users come to the conclusion that the two addresses are manipulated elections and, in addition, they are among the top 10 wallets LBA. The total number of LBA on their account equivalent to approximately 13333323 LBA.

Similar manipulations are carried out for MITH.

However, despite all this, at the time of this writing, the favorite of the vote is NKN, Mithril is in second place, and Libra Credit on the third.

Representatives of the exchange have not commented on the allegations of manipulation. But the head of the exchange said that if manipulation took place, they will treat them with all the rigidity.

Google banned mining applications in the Play Store

Google has followed Apple’s example and banned application for mining in your mobile app store.

We don’t allow apps that deal with mining of cryptocurrencies. But applications that remotely manage mining, are still permitted.

The last time both tech giants like Google and Apple started to accept strict measures in relation to mining applications in their ecosystems.

In April, Google banned in your online store Chrome all mining applications, after it was discovered that “the vast majority” of producers such applications do not adhere to the policy of “common purpose”.

And last month Apple updated its policy in regard to mobile apps, and banned everything that can be used for mining on mobile devices.

It is obvious that in this way companies are trying to respond to the growing popularity of cryptogamia among cybercriminals.

Meet Honeyminer application that will mine bitcoins on a laptop

New software for mining cryptocurrency promises to almost everyone to earn small amount of bitcoins using a regular laptop running Windows. According to the developers, we will again be able to experience the romance of the time when the cryptocurrency was born, and no one thought about the special miners and farms.

Mining startup in new Jersey, Honeyminer, has released a free beta version of their program that has already been downloaded 10,000 users. The app allows you to create global pool when the graphics processor of a conventional computer (GPU) is not used for image processing or video.

Poole focuses on the mining of ethereum, ethereum classic, zcash for, monero and other GPU-friendly cryptocurrency. Then, at the end of the mining process, Honeyminer sends the income of the participant, converted into Bitcoin directly to the wallet of the user.

“The miner must perform mathematical calculations, manage all the configurations and settings or manually monitor prices,” said consultant Honeyminer Noah Jessop, a venture capitalist from Founder Collective in San Francisco.

This type of services offers new opportunities for people who want to own Batocina, but they have little money for investment or limited access to the cryptocurrency exchangers. App from Honeyminer slightly reduce the advantage of large mining centers with expensive specialized equipment.

The algorithm automatically switches between cryptocurrencies every 10 minutes or so, depending on the size of the unit, or in case of sudden changes in profitability of production of currency.

“We bring people together to quickly find the reward for the block. Together we generated more Hasrat — says one of the founders Honeyminer Larry Kom. “We connect you to the blockchain and retain your anonymity, but you are contributing to what is, in fact, minig-pool”.

Of course, this is not the most profitable way of mining, given the high volatility of the coin (from 2.5% to 8%, depending on the capabilities of the equipment of the miner). Even a powerful GPU can earn coins, worth one or two dollars, after a whole day of non-stop work program. But, of course, Honeyminer offers the easiest method of mining today.

“If you have heard about cryptography and you want to learn it, you can either go and pay a round sum, or to download the program for 30 seconds and start earning bitcoin for free”.

The developers Honeyminer inspired arguments about the dominance of Bitmain in the world of mining, while providing FOR a narrow circle of firms controlling almost all mining pools.

But, according to David Viorica, the CEO of the company is Nebulous, the management Siacoin and Obelisk, the new application will not be able to change such a large ecosystem, but is able to attract new ones, given that Honeyminer — closed source

Arguing on this topic, Vorik suggested that over the next two years, mining with GPUs will disappear altogether:

We will soon see the ASIC chips that will support a huge number of different algorithms. Once that happens — GPU icsnet forever from the world of mining.

For better or worse, the team Honeyminer recognizes that they will have to expand the package of services and features for different types of users. For newcomers Honeyminer will soon provide the ability to send their bitcoins in wallets on third party platforms such as Coinbase.

Regardless of whether it’s a cheap laptop, or professional equipment, “each computer will receive the task on the basis of their specific performance and capability”.

Also in development is a specialized version for professional miners called Honeyminer Pro. The program helps power consumption and also allows you to manually select the digital currency mining.

“I would say that we now have no competitors, so we built what is built,” concluded Larry Kom.

A gunman of DNR Sailor decided not to buy cryptocurrency exchange Wex: Its new purpose — Exmo

The head of the Crimean branch of the Union of volunteers of Donbass Dmitry Hevchenko who fought in the ranks of the self-proclaimed Donetsk people’s Republic under the call sign Sailor, abandoned plans for the purchase of cryptocurrency exchanges Wex with an average daily turnover of $ 20 million.

According to him, “this decision came after unsuccessful negotiations with the current official owner of the trading platform — 31-year-old native of Minsk Dmitry Vasiliev”.

Now, Havenco declared the intention to buy another crypto currency exchange — Exmo.

Date of signing the final documents for the deal from the Wex was appointed three times, but at the last moment all frustrated, complains Hevchenko. The last time the signing was scheduled for July 25, but instead Vasiliev arrived in Moscow, his lawyer, that did not suit Hevchenko. For a 100% ownership stake by Singaporean company World Exchange Services, which is the official operator of the exchange, Vasiliev was offered $ 3 million to $ 5 million, but he constantly changed the terms of the transaction.

Another reason for refusal from the purchase of steel difficulties Wex lately, says Havenco. Since the beginning of July the exchange rate of Bitcoin on the exchange substantially exceeds the weighted average: thus, as of July 26 you can buy at the Wex for $ 9600 on other sites for $ 7949 (data from Coinmarketcap). In addition, limited opportunity for withdrawal of assets from the exchange: the exchange of bitcoins, “ether” and other cryptocurrencies to traditional money (Fiat) can only be made through the service “Yandex.Money”, the Commission is 55%.

“Two weeks ago it was possible to fix the situation, now the time is missed,” notes Hevchenko.

However, the ex-fighter still retains the interest in the cryptocurrency business to make a “Patriotic project” in this field, in particular, it was the idea of translating the Wex team to the Crimea and re-site in one of the unrecognized republics. Now, instead of Wex he intends to purchase other exchange — Exmo c daily turnover of over $ 40 million Negotiation has already begun, says Havenco. But this is not confirmed by the co-founder of Exmo Ivan Petrovsky:

“At the moment, any suggestions concerning the purchase of the exchange were reported, no negotiations, we’re not.”

Havenco, says it will use only its own funds for the purchase of cryptocurrency exchanges. In the 1990s and 2000s he worked in Kiev in the gas company “ITERA”. In 2007, he headed the Ukrainian “daughter” of the Russian construction group SU-155. In 2014 he took an active part in the events of the “Russian spring” in Crimea, in may of the same year went to fight in the Donbass, where he was a colleague who was then the post of Prime Minister DND Alexander Borodai, former consultant to the Russian businessman Konstantin Malofeev.

Structure Malofeev and his group of “Constantinople” may be behind an attempt to buy Wex. And Hevchenko, the press service of “Constantinople” deny that Malofeev is relevant to this transaction.

Exchange Wex earned in the fall of 2017 as the successor of the oldest Russian platform for trading cryptocurrencies BTC-e, falling in July 2017 after the arrest in Greece at the request of the U.S. Russian Alexander winnick. By the end of 2017, the daily volume of trading on the Wex reached $ 80 million, she was in the top twenty most popular cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, but by the summer of 2018, the revs fell to $ 20 million Now the total assets of clients — both cryptocurrency and Fiat balance — may be $ 100 million, says a source close to Vassiliev.
