🗞 Stellar to Airdrop 2 Billion XLM Crypto Tokens Worth $120 Million

Chat with your friends – and get paid to do it.

The Stellar Development Foundation and messaging service Keybase announced Monday a 2 billion XLM airdrop, the largest in Stellar’s five-year history, worth roughly $120 million. Over the next 20 months, Keybase users can expect monthly airdrops of 100 million XLM.

Keybase currently has 300,000 active users across its various services, according to the company.
“All you have to do is have an authenticated Keybase account, and your XLM will appear in your wallet – automatically, every month, for as long as the airdrop continues,” according to a draft blog post shared with CoinDesk.

🗞Decentralized Brave Browser Tops Chrome in Google Play Rankings in Japan

The popularity of the decentralized blockchain-enabled web browser Brave continues to grow as it has outranked other browsers in Google Play rankings in Japan.

Brave beats rival browsers

According to a Reddit post on Sept. 8, this is the first time that the privacy-focused Brave browser has overtaken its rival browsers such as Firefox, Opera and Chrome in Japan. The most recent ranking data from Google Play shows that Brave sits comfortably at number 10 on the list, while its closest competitor Firefox lags behind, occupying 14th place.

A Google Play ranking is determined by how well apps perform against several key metrics such as crash rates, app-not-responding rates, excessive WiFi, location or processing in the background.

🗞 IBM Now Holds 6 of 11 Seats on Hyperledger Blockchain Steering Board

IBM has doubled the number of its employees on the technical steering committee (TSC) of Hyperledger, stoking concerns about the tech giant’s influence on the enterprise blockchain consortium.

Six out of the 11 2019-2020 TSC members announced last week are IBM employees. Five work at Big Blue itself and one, Mark Wagner, is a senior principal engineer at Red Hat, an IBM subsidiary. By comparison, the previous year’s TSC had only two IBM representatives and the same number of total seats (Wagner served on the committee, but IBM’s acquisition of Red Hat did not close until July 2019).

The new committee will begin governing after the new TSC chair is elected next week.

🗞 VanEck’s New Bitcoin Trust Assets Total Just $41K in First Week

Investment management firm VanEck has issued just 4 bitcoins (BTC) via its new trust focused on institutional investors.
VanEck: one week, one Bitcoin basket

Data from the company, spotted by economist and cryptocurrency commentator Alex Krüger on Sept. 10, showed that since its launch at the start of the month, VanEck SolidX Bitcoin Trust 144A Shares total net assets are only $41,400.

The product, which caused a buzz after VanEck described it as being akin to an exchange-traded fund (ETF), caters strictly to so-called qualified institutional buyers, or QIBs.

“VanEck SolidX Bitcoin Trust 144A Shares… looks and feels like a traditional ETF,” its official description reads.

🗞 Japan: Bitcoin Surpasses XRP in Yen-Denominated Crypto Holdings

Fresh data from the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association (JVCEA) has revealed that as of April 2019, the value of yen-denominated Bitcoin (BTC) holdings has outstripped those in XRP on domestic exchanges.

As Cointelegraph Japan reported on Sept. 10, the surge in the value of exchanges’ Bitcoin holdings coincides with the beginning of Bitcoin’s 2019 bullish uptrend, which saw the top cryptocurrency hit close to $14,000 by late June.

More XRP is being accumulated, but value declining

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion

Here is the chart of yersterday :


Here is the current chart :


The zone around 0.165$-0.164$ starts to be a support zone and even we tried to break it several times, it looks like that the sellers have difficulties to go lower. We have the see what will be the results in the coming hours as we are just sitting on it but a UP bounce from that zone is possible.

I would like to apologize for using so many Steems to power up this post. I thought it would do 10$ as before HF21-22. I forgot that they adapted the upvote amount and therefore I did not aim to make this post so visible at 40$+ rewards.
Sorry, This will not happen again 😐

I saw you resteemed Kevin Wongs post where he writes:

Bidbotting is a secondary market where people are able to effectively buy discounted Steem perpetually. This sabotages the primary market, leading to a sustained devaluation of our currency and platform.

So why use bidbots at all?

You are right, it can help though to make good post known, I wanted to try it post HFs. And I made a mistake.
On the other hand I heard about bidbots destroying your steem afterwards (good for everyone then). Do you know which one to use that have this function?

I know that it can make a post visible, but it is destructive. I can't remember if some of the bots are now burning what they earn, but it sounds like a bad business to me. With the new rules they would be earning more by simply curating.

Sadly there isn't really a good system paying to promoting posts. I think the idea of the promoted system where you burn steem is very good, but the posts should be displayed in the feed of all users where the so called featured posts are now.

I am just doing it the purist way and hoping the community will see when I have made a long and work-heavy post - until there will be a promotion solution that will benefit both Steem and the users of the solution, I am not sure it is doable. But I can be wrong of course.

Nice work! Lots of new stuff!
No wonder you are very optimistic!

Good luck!

Oh well ! Sometimes you just have to be 😉

Thanks for this good information.
