https://news.bitcoin.com/omni-layer-advancing-bitcoin-2-0/ "Omni Layer, the initiative to build a protocol layer over the Bitcoin blockchain and other systems, is a pretty intense project. The software allows users to transact with tokens with asset representations. Omni has so many versatile uses that it provides a cryptocurrency asset landscape in this environment. The omni asset, being the first to be introduced in this network, is close to completion. Bitcoin and various cryptocurrencies act as a base layer of usage; the Omni project is a higher layer and a benchmark for asset protocols"

Joder con las dedos, cryptocurrency

⚡️G20-FSB rejects calls for cryptocurrency regulation⚡️ (Translated from French) The Financial Stability Board (FSB), which coordinates financial regulation for the G20 countries, on Sunday rejected calls by several countries for cryptocurrency regulation, such as Bitcoin. The FSB, however, stressed the need for greater international coordination in monitoring these rapidly evolving technologies, which still represent a tiny sector equivalent to less than 1% of global gross domestic product. "The first assessment of the FSB is that currently, these crypto-assets do not pose a risk to global financial stability," said Mark Carney, president of the FSB, in a letter to finance ministers and governors of central banks, which will meet in Buenos Aires on Monday

Correction: Mt. Gox Trustee Wallet has sent out 16k BTC. Please take the following into consideration: "Following consultation with cryptocurrency experts, I sold BTC and BCC, not by an ordinary sale through the BTC/BCC exchange, but in a manner that would avoid affecting the market price, while ensuring the security of the transaction to the [greatest] extent possible," Direct quote from Mt. Gox Trustee Kobayashi, that proves his sells will NOT affect the price of Bitcoin.

The first project is Litecoin (LTC). Litecoin is a fork of bitcoin created in 2011. Litecoin and bitcoin are similar. But Litecoin has faster block times, a larger supply, and a different hashing algorithm. The technical similarities to bitcoin make Litecoin a good testing ground for changes to the bitcoin protocol. In fact, Litecoin activated SegWit on its blockchain before bitcoin. [SegWit is the protocol change which removed signature data from bitcoin transactions to increase the block size.] And now, Litecoin is testing the Lightning Network, bitcoin’s other scaling solution. The Lightning Network allows cheaper and faster transactions. That gives Litecoin an opportunity in the payments space. The most imminent catalyst for Litecoin, however, is the institutional money coming into the crypto market. On Wednesday, Goldman Sachs announced it will open a cryptocurrency trading desk. Morgan Stanley is joining the fray, too. The first coins they’ll buy include the ones with the most volume and custody solutions. Litecoin is on that list. As always, place no more than $200–400 for smaller accounts and $500–1,000 for larger accounts into this trade. Recommended Action: Buy Litecoin (LTC) Buy-up-to Price: $175 Stop Loss: None Buy It On: Binance, Bittrex Store It On: Abra, Jaxx, Ledger Trade No. 2 The second project is ICON (ICX). The ICON Project is a decentralized transactions network and applications platform. It will allow blockchains with different governance models to transact with one another. Its goal is to connect users with hospitals, universities, financial institutions, capital markets, and more. It already has partnerships with over two dozen institutions. Facilitating the network is the native token ICX. Dayli Financial Group founded ICON. It’s a subsidiary of Yello Mobile, the largest mobile startup in South Korea worth $4 billion. It owns The Loop, the company behind its interoperability technology. And CoinOne, one of the top cryptocurrencyvv exchanges in South Korea. ICON successfully launched its mainnet in late January. And since then, it has announced a number of new partnerships. Over the rest of 2018, expect to see ICON launch a new mobile wallet, ICO platform, and its first dApps. As always, place no more than $200–400 for smaller accounts and $500–1,000 for larger accounts into this trade. Recommended Action: ICON (ICX) Buy-up-to Price: $5.50 Stop Loss: None Buy It On: Binance Store It On: Binance (Please note: The current ICX token is an ERC20 token. ICON will exchange those tokens via a 1:1 token swap for new ICX mainnet tokens. The ERC20 tokens will be burned. A start date for the token swap has not been announced yet, but the token swap period will last three months. The easiest way to handle the swap is to hold your ICX tokens on Binance. It will handle the swap for you. Once that’s done, we’ll send instructions to install the ICONex wallet.) Trade No. 3 The third project is Quantstamp (QSP). It’s a protocol for securing smart contracts. If you’ve followed Ethereum news, then you might recall the DAO hack or the Parity wallet flaw. Both were due to faulty smart contracts. And millions of dollars were lost. Quantstamp aims to solve that problem in two ways: First, it’s an automated and upgradeable software verification system that checks programs. Second, it’s an automated bounty payout system that rewards people who find errors in smart contracts. The protocol runs on the native token QSP. The token is used to pay for smart contract audit services and bounty hunters. What’s great about this service is it’s already in use. Most recently, Quantstamp performed successful audits of Binance’s ERC20 tokens and OmiseGo. The project is led by Cornell grad Richard Ma. He has an extensive background in quantitative analytics and started Quantstamp with Y Combinator. Ni Y Combinator is a well-known venture capital company. Its previous investments include Coinbase, Airbnb, and Dropbox.
