🗞 Singapore’s Wealth Fund GIC Among Those to Raise $300 Mln for Coinbase in 2018

Singapore’s Government Investment Corporation (GIC) was reportedly one of the investors to have helped raise $300 million for major United States crypto wallet provider and exchange service Coinbase in 2018. Bloomberg reported the news on Feb. 28, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter.

According to its official website, GIC — which was founded to manage Singapore’s foreign reserves — has in excess of $100 billion assets in over 40 countries worldwide.

As reported, Coinbase revealed it had raised $300 million in a Series E equity financing round in October 2018, brining its post-money valuation at the time to $8 billion.

🗞 Constantinople Incoming: Tomorrow’s Two Ethereum Hard Forks Explained

In less than 24 hours, the world’s second largest blockchain by market capitalization is expected to activate its sixth and seventh system-wide upgrades, at which point its global user base will be asked to make two near-simultaneous changes to its code.

Known as Constantinople and St. Petersburg, both upgrades will be implemented as “hard forks,” or upgrades that add new rules to the ethereum software that are incompatible with past versions. Both will also take place at the exact same block number – 7,280,000.

Should users decide to upgrade, St. Petersburg will effectively disable part of the Constantinople code discovered back in January to host a critical vulnerability affecting smart contract security. Further, four out of five planned ethereum improvement proposals (EIPs) – the majority of which, according to independent ethereum developer Lane Rettig, will not be noticeable to the average user.

🗞 Global Demand for Blockchain Engineers Up 517 Percent in a Year, Says Hired

This month, the <abbr title="

Ethereum is a decentralized blockchain platform, enabled with EDCCs, where a software developer can build games, financial applications, gambling applications, utility and logistics software, social networks and more.">Ethereum community experienced vicious infighting on social media as people reacted to Afri Schoedon's controversial tweet about Serenity and Polkadot. The alleged verbal violence directed at Schoedon resulted in his exit from Ethereum and a subsequent letter, signed by dozens of Ethereum contributors, calling the community to develop healthier discussion practices and to "protect each other from threats and violence."

This wasn't the first Twitter thread in the Ethereum community to turn ugly, but Afrigate renews pressing questions about discourse. How can members of the community disagree or offer criticism in ways that are generative? In light of this recent display of toxic communication, I sat down with Taylor Monahan of MyCrypto to talk about healthy communication in the <abbr title="

🗞 Bitcoin Price May Rise in March Despite Month’s Bearish Track Record

Bitcoin could end the five-year March losing streak with solid gains if resistance at $4,190 (high of last week’s inverted bullish hammer) is convincingly scaled in the next week or two.

The cryptocurrency reinforced a bullish triangle breakout witnessed last week with a quick recovery from sub-$3,700 levels yesterday. This “buy the dip” mentality indicates scope for a break above the recent high of $4,190.

The focus would shift to the primary bearish trend seen on the monthly chart if BTC fails to pick a strong bid in the next few days. In that case, the probability of BTC ending March on a negative note for the sixth consecutive year would rise.

🗞 Putin's Order: Russia to Adopt Crypto Regulation by July

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has instructed his country’s government to adopt federal laws relating to cryptocurrency by July this year. Russia has earlier broadened the definition of “digital financial assets” to include cryptocurrencies. Putin’s latest order resembles one he made regarding crypto regulation last year.

Putin has approved a list of instructions for 47 orders, according to a document posted on the Kremlin website on Wednesday. Among them is an order for the government to work with the State Duma, the lower house of parliament, to ensure adoption of “federal laws aimed at the development of the digital economy.” They include “determining the procedure for conducting civil law transactions in electronic form, as well as regulating digital financial assets and attracting financial resources using digital technologies,” the order details.

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion

Here is the chart of yesterday :


Here is the current chart :


Due to the drop of the BTC, we are currently starting also a correction. No luck because I'm quiet sure that if we would have a UP on the BTC, the resistance line on the STEEM around 0.39$ would have been broken. Anyway, the market decided the other scenario so we have to adjust our hopes. We have now a high risk to go test the support line around 0.31$...

Do you think that this last bull run was cause of the hardfrok of ethereum?? I'm starting to believe it

I don’t know but I wouldn’t think so. Not much people have be so enthusiastic about it.
In addition ETH is not even the best performer

It seems to me that Bitcoin is slowly starting to get attention again. Russia to adopt Crypto Regulation, 1M BTC mining machines to switch back on in China in May .. it's getting real.

Bitcoin is still rolling with the Adam and Eve pattern. It's still a possibility to break that 4200$ support. Right now we're finding support at the Tenkan and the 21 day MA. Still trying to cross the cloud..


Let’s hope you are right !
Take care

You too, @vlemon.
Keep rocking!

Hm, Constantinople Hard Forkm didn´t change anything on the currently prize. The times are over that any news/developments will have an impact on the course.

I think you are kind of right. But news still make difference especially when they add up.
